See for Yourself - Menomonee Valley From the Ground Up

From the Ground Up is an effort to improve job accessibility, science education, environmental and public health, and neighborhood vitality in the Menomonee Valley. It is a story of partnership, creative solutions, and profound impact.

In collaboration with the State of Wisconsin and City of Milwaukee, the Urban Ecology Center and Menomonee Valley Partners, Inc. are implementing a $26 million $25 million (reduced thanks to construction savings) group of interdependent projects. UEC/MVP Project Inc. was formed as a separate 501c3 non-profit to implement this e­ffort.

Through this collaboration we added six miles to the Hank Aaron State Trail and opened the Valley Passage, opened a Menomonee Valley branch of the Urban Ecology Center, and turned a brownfield into Milwaukee's newest park.

In addition to significant public investment, From the Ground Up has been supported by hundreds of corporations, foundations and individual donors… so far!
