Complete Communities Project Description

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.  

The Milwaukee County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has launched the Complete Communities Transportation Planning Project. This is effort to increase multimodal safety and address reckless driving across all 19 municipalities in Milwaukee County. With support from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and as part of the Federal (USDOT) Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) program, Milwaukee County is working collaboratively with municipal leaders across the County to develop a comprehensive, data-driven, countywide plan. All 19 of Milwaukee County’s municipalities have been involved in one way or another and many are in the beginning stages of developing their Safe Streets Action Plan alongside Milwaukee County.

Reckless driving has reached crisis levels in Milwaukee County. Our pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and motorists demand and deserve an effective plan to increase multimodal safety and reduce reckless driving. Milwaukee County's vision to be the healthiest county in Wisconsin by achieving racial equity cannot be achieved without taking a new approach to transportation safety, addressing the root causes of reckless driving, and protecting our most vulnerable roadway users. The planning process and resulting plan will use an equity lens to center communities of color who often experience the greatest harm.

The project includes two phases and deliverables:

Phase One includes:

  • Safe Streets Roadshow (a series of 21 public engagement meetings across Milwaukee County)

  • Public Advisory Committee (community leaders, advocates and non-profits)

  • Safety Working Group (industry leaders and subject matter experts)

  • Transportation Safety Assessment Report for Milwaukee County

Phase One of the project concluded in March 2024.

Phase Two includes:

  • Another round of public engagement and outreach

  • Development of a countywide Comprehensive Safety Action Plan (a.k.a. Safe Streets Action Plan)

  • Development of participating Milwaukee County municipalities' individual Comprehensive Safety Action Plans

Phase Two of the project will begin in April 2024 and conclude in 2025.
