  1. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

The purpose of the Avenues West Redevelopment Plan (“Plan”) is to facilitate the redevelopment objectives within the Avenues West Redevelopment Project Area (“Area”) as established by the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee (“Common Council”) adopted File No. 051271, which authorized and directed the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Milwaukee (“Authority”) to prepare a redevelopment plan for the area identified as Avenues West.

This Plan has several areas of emphasis that together complete the redevelopment strategy for the project area:


  1. Housing Strategy– A housing strategy for targeted density reduction, rehabilitation and development; with an emphasis on home ownership for the project area (see Map No. 9 -- Housing Strategy Map and Photographs);


Single-Family Strategy:

  1. Promote land assembly to develop or reinforce existing single family clusters/zones. If redevelopment parcels are located on transit corridors, choose a higher-density building form, such as rowhouses or townhouses.

  2. Redevelop oversized or underutilized parking lots with single family dwelling units where feasible and appropriate. Target parking lots adjacent to existing single family clusters for either single-family attached units (duplexes, fourplexes, rowhouses, townhouses) or single-family detached units based on character and density of surrounding area.

  3. Rehabilitate single family homes to support the efforts of existing homeowners to improve their properties, and raise the current level of property reinvestment, to promote new investment and ownership in the neighborhood.

  4. Redevelop new infill buildings on vacant lots to same high standard as rehabilitated and renovated properties in the area.

  5. Promote strict Code Enforcement to raise exterior standards, provide support for rehab and renovation efforts of existing homeowners in the area, and establish a stronger sense of community identity and shared investment in the neighborhood.

  6. Preserve single-family homes with historic character as neighborhood assets.


Multi-Family Strategy:
  1. Where feasible, combine small units within high occupancy multi-family buildings to reduce density and create condominium units marketable for owner occupancy.


  2. Preserve multi-family buildings with historic character as neighborhood assets.

  3. Encourage on-site property management for non-owner-occupied multi-family buildings, emphasizing those with 16 units or more.

  4. Rehabilitate multi-family housing that has a blighting influencing on the neighborhood through:

  1. Strict code enforcement

  2. Acquisition and redevelopment

  3. Change in ownership structure

  4. Change in management structure

  5. Low-interest rehabilitation loans to responsible owners

  1. Zone or cluster multi-family along major transit corridors (e.g. Wisconsin Avenue)

  1. Target for redevelopment or conversion to owner-occupied units (e.g., condos), multi-family housing that is located in the middle of single family clusters.

  2. Target for redevelopment or conversion to owner-occupied units (e.g., condos), historically-designated or historic-eligible multi-family housing.

  3. Reinforce commercial corridors with infill multi-family housing. Where feasible and where the market will support it, make new residential development mixed-use--ground floor commercial with multi-family residential above.

  4. In some cases it is acceptable to increase density as long as units are owner occupied, or where there is on-site property management, especially in cases where the market demands or construction costs dictate a higher density.



Mixed-Use Strategy (primarily intended for commercial corridors):
  1. Develop multi-family infill buildings with owner-occupied townhouse units on the ground floor level(s) and either rental units or condos above. If feasible, make a portion of owner-occupied and rental units "affordable housing" based on median incomes in the area.


  2. Target parking lots that are within or adjacent to commercial corridors for multi-family residential-over-retail development.

  3. Redevelop, restore and/or rehabilitate existing residential-over-retail buildings and market residential units for use as either multi-family rental or condo. Create a street level that is compatible with N. 27th Street "SoHI" Main Street goals of creating a pedestrian-friendly, highly activated commercial corridor.


Target Investment Neighborhood (TIN) Strategy:
Subject to availability of funds, the Neighborhood Improvement Development Corporation (NIDC) will offer low-cost loans for rehabilitation to owners of properties not identified for acquisition. Properties receiving rehabilitation loans through NIDC must be repaired and rehabilitated to the minimum property standards established by the Community Development Block Grant Agency of the City of Milwaukee. This standard is the Home Investment Partnership or “HOME” standard, which is hereby incorporated by reference and made a part of this Plan.


  1. Commercial Corridor Strategy

  1. Repair and restore buildings in good condition.

  2. Replace buildings or parts of buildings not in sound structural condition or where repairs are cost prohibitive.

  3. Create a continuous street frontage ("street wall")or "infill" gaps between buildings, to the extent feasible.

  4. Improve parking lot landscaping, screening and maintenance along major commercial corridors

  5. Promote strict code enforcement for landscaping of surface parking lots, and voluntary compliance for lots that are pre-code (developed prior to existing standards).
  6. Cluster commercial development at critical commercial nodes and key intersections.


  7. Infill between nodes with compatible or contributing uses.

  8. Acquire, rehabilitate or replace blighted properties.

  9. Repair blighting features of properties that are otherwise in good condition, e.g. board-ups, broken glass.

  10. Avoid visible signs of disinvestment, e.g. boarded up or blocked out windows, worn-out signs. etc.



  1. SoHi” Main Street Corridor

  1. Improve the physical character of the "SoHi" commercial district in keeping with the SOHI District Master Plan (see Exhibit A, SOHI District Master Plan).

  1. Target commercial buildings for potential façade grants.

  2. Create investment and employment opportunities within the redevelopment project area.

  3. Discourage automobile uses and encourage pedestrian friendly uses that activate the street.

  4. Identify and implement potential catalytic projects.

  5. Employ Main Street four-point program of Design/Preservation, Organization, Economic Restructuring and Marketing/Promotion.




  1. Zoning Strategy

  1. Rezone multi-family districts to two-family or single-family residential districts to promote density reduction and owner occupancy.

  2. Establish neighborhood conservation district for specific project areas.

  3. Encourage planned development zoning on large projects that would benefit from a project-specific or custom approach to land use, architecture, site design, and landscaping.




  1. Public Improvements

  1. Capture and integrate former school sites where school closures occur.
  2. Green N. 27th Street with additional street trees, planters, and small urban park or outdoor café areas, as feasible.


  3. Add street furniture and other amenities (e.g. kiosks, public art) where space allows and as feasible.

  4. Reconstruction strategy for N 27th Street

    1. Meet State and Federal requirements for State Trunk Highway 57 (N. 27th Street).

    2. Preserve buildings designated for National Register Historic status.

    3. Maintain pedestrian-oriented features to preserve and enhance commercial viability.

    4. Vacate the public Right of Way to curb line on both sides of 27th St between W State St and W Highland Blvd. to create a developable site or a landscaped gateway entry to "SoHi" Main Street.




  1. Renewal Plan Objectives

This Plan is intended to facilitate redevelopment of the Avenues West neighborhood, primarily focused on increasing home ownership as well as increasing the positive image of the “SoHi Main Street,” commercial district.

  1. PROJECT PROPOSALS

1. Land Acquisition




    1. Property currently identified for acquisition is shown on Map No. 4, Land Acquisition Plan, as “parcel to be acquired.” The Neighborhood Improvement Development Corporation (NIDC) will offer low-cost loans for rehabilitation to owners of properties not identified for acquisition. Properties receiving rehabilitation loans through NIDC must be repaired and rehabilitated to the minimum property standards established by the Community Development Block Grant Agency of the City of Milwaukee. This standard is the Home Investment Partnership or “HOME” standard, which is hereby incorporated by reference and made a part of this Plan.




    1. Properties not identified for acquisition may be acquired at any time during the course of project execution if, after notice of meetings in accordance with the procedure described below, the Redevelopment Authority has found and determined that such properties are blighting because:




      1. The present owner(s) is unable or unwilling to repair and rehabilitate the property to the minimum standard for rehabilitation identified above. (Whenever such property is acquired, it may be cleared or offered for sale subject to rehabilitation to at least the Home Investment Partnership or “HOME” standard.)



      1. The property is substandard, deteriorated, or economically infeasible of repair and rehabilitation to the 20-year standard identified above.





      1. The property is needed for land assembly to provide a development site of sufficient size and shape to attract investment by the private sector, or to achieve described land use objectives established for the project area.

The following procedure shall be used whenever the Authority deems it necessary to acquire additional properties in the project area:


The Authority shall notify the owners of all property within the project area proposed to be acquired under the provisions of this subsection of the Plan. Notice shall be given to the owner(s) of record of each such property to be acquired by certified mail with return receipt requested, at their last-known address and at least 10 days prior to adopting a resolution approving such acquisition. Such notice shall describe the time, date, place, and purpose of the hearing; identify the project area and the property to be acquired; and also recite the reason(s) for such acquisition. All owners receiving notice shall be afforded a full opportunity to express their views respecting the proposed acquisition at such meeting for the purpose of assisting the Authority in making its findings and determinations. If the authority finds and determines that a property is blighting under one or more of the criteria set forth in Section D.1.b.1) through 4) above, it may by resolution, act to acquire such property by negotiation or by eminent domain under Chapter 32, Wisconsin Statutes, amending the relocation order, or the project filed in the office of the County Clerk, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Such order shall be supplemental to the approved redevelopment plan recorded with the Register of Deeds of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.

  1. If identified for acquisition on Map No. 4Land Acquisition Plan, property later may be excluded from acquisition during the course of project execution upon the written request of the property owner and subsequent approval by the Authority under the following conditions:

1) The owner submits a specific plan or program of action indicating that the proposed use, construction, or reconstruction is in conformance with the objectives of the Plan and local codes, and satisfactorily demonstrates the financial feasibility of complying with all mandatory standards for property rehabilitation as may be required by the Authority;


2) The property has since been acquired by an adjacent retained use, provided, however, that any existing non-historic buildings on such property are demolished and the land is redeveloped in accordance with the regulations specified in Section C of this Plan as determined by the Authority;
3) Redevelopment, rehabilitation, reconstruction, or use of the property by the present owner or his assigns is consistent with the objectives, permitted land uses, and regulations specified in Section C of this Plan as determined by the Authority.

Where a disposition parcel is sold or leased with the intention of not placing a building thereon, the use and development shall be controlled as specifically set forth in the appropriate agreement. The agreement will include a reasonable time schedule for which the developer will be held accountable. The Authority reserves the right to terminate any agreements for development projects that are not progressing on a reasonable schedule.




  1. Neither the redeveloper, nor any of his successors or assignees shall restrict the use of land in the project upon the basis of race, creed, color, or national origin in the sale, use, or occupancy thereof. Appropriate covenants running with the land forever, which will prohibit such restriction, shall be included in the disposition instrument.

4. Authority’s Obligations



  1. All real property and land necessary or indicated for implementation of the objectives of this Plan and proposed to be acquired by purchase, lease, eminent domain, or otherwise, cleared as necessary and re-sold, leased or dedicated by the Redevelopment Authority for private and public redevelopment in accordance with the uses, land provisions, and building requirements set forth in this Plan is identified on Map No. 4Land Acquisition Plan, attached to this Plan.




  1.

Disposition may, therefore, be by means of fixed price offerings, negotiation, or by any other means deemed necessary or appropriate by the Redevelopment Authority to attain the objectives and development sought for this renewal project. Such disposition shall be subject to Common Council approval as provided in Section 66.1333(6)(b), Wisconsin Statutes.




  1. The Authority will furnish the developer with an appropriate certificate upon the satisfactory completion of all building construction and other related improvements specified in the final construction plans approved for development. Until the Authority so certifies, the purchaser shall have no power to convey the project or any part thereof as provided by Wisconsin law and the agreements executed pursuant hereto.

5. Urban Design Objectives



  1. All project redevelopment proposals shall provide for the highest feasible levels of architectural and environmental design and shall be predicated upon sound principles and best practices of site planning and building construction. Primary structures, accessory parking areas, usable open space, and utilitarian site features such as waste collection stations, shall be functionally located and arranged with respect to both the disposition site and the surrounding development.
