“Greening Milwaukee’s 30th Street Industrial Corridor” presentation by Sarah Bregant and Andrew Haug
Northwest Side Community Development Corporation
Learn about the process of change and redevelopment in the North Area of Milwaukee’s 30th Street Industrial Corridor. The area was once a major industrial hub of Milwaukee, with 10,000 manufacturing jobs located in walk-to-work neighborhoods. NWSCDC is working with stakeholders and community residents to accelerate the redevelopment of key parcels while leveraging existing assets to grow new jobs in the North Corridor Area. Catalytic partnerships with the City, MMSD, neighborhood groups and developers will help launch infrastructure improvements which will attract private capital and grow businesses and jobs. Furthermore, innovative stormwater management will accelerate reinvestment in the area, beautify vacant parcels, and provide educational opportunities for area students.
Sarah Bregant is a Community Development Specialist at NWSCDC with a background in public policy and urban planning. She is collaborating on several projects in Milwaukee’s 30th Street Corridor related to economic development, green infrastructure, neighborhood connectivity, and community building. She is currently working on a two-year project focused on community engagement, youth programming, and planning/visioning for public space at the MMSD stormwater retention basin on N. 35th Street & W. Congress Street.
Andrew Haug is the Resource Development Manager at NWSCDC, responsible for all aspects of fundraising, including grant-writing and reporting. He brings 10 years of non-profit sector experience, including fundraising and education.

Andrew supports NWSCDC activities in business lending, brownfield redevelopment, community engagement, and green infrastructure.
