RNC Operational Updates for Monday, July 15, through Friday, July 19

The Milwaukee County Courthouse will remain open during the Republican National Convention (RNC). All court operations (Civil and Family Filings, Restraining Orders, Probate, In Custody Intake Court, Preliminary Hearings) will be operating at Vel Phillips Juvenile Justice Center (10201 W. Watertown Plank Rd. Wauwatosa, WI.) For more information about how other Milwaukee County services and operations will be impacted during the RNC, visit Milwaukee County's RNC updates webpage.  

All 19 municipalities are at varying levels of participation in and alignment with our Complete Communities Transportation Planning process.  They have all been open to having Milwaukee County DOT hold a public meeting to engage with their residents.  Most municipalities will be participating in the development of their own Safe Streets Action Plan, thus making those municipalities eligible to apply for federal funding to help pay for street infrastructure, design and traffic calming improvements.
