Dear Prospective Member,


On behalf of the staff and board of the Westown Association, BID #5, thank you for your continued interest and support of downtown Milwaukee.

As we move into 2017, momentum in the Westown area will continue to grow as the arena development project progresses, Marquette breaks ground on the new Athletic Performance Research Center and plans for the vision of Grand Avenue move forward. Westown will work to keep our membership informed on these and other new developments as they take shape throughout the upcoming year. Because we know these topics are vitally important to our stakeholders, we will also continue be an advocate on issues that we know will positively impact perception and quality of life in the neighborhood such as street level nuisance activity, licensing and public safety.

Westown had quite the milestone year for our events in 2016, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Shamrock Club of Wisconsin’s St. Patrick’s Parade, 20th season of River Rhythms and the largest food and vendor participation at the Westown Farmer’s Market to date. The organization continued the Westown Golf Open, which has developed into a major fundraiser for the association. We also partnered on MKE Oktoberfest in Pere Marquette Park, which has doubled in size again this year. Overall, Westown continued to grow the organization’s successful, longstanding events that brought thousands of people to the area, and we know 2017 will be no exception.

Please join the more than 130 stakeholders who are also passionate about the Westown neighborhood. We assure you your investment in Westown will make a difference. Our members are a vital part of our success!
