Milwaukee Recreation Master Plan

Milwaukee, WI

The Lakota Group, along with Heller and Heller, worked with Milwaukee Public Schools Department of Recreation and Community Services in the development of a Master Plan. This Recreation Master Plan serves as a guiding document for Milwaukee Public Schools to develop a system-wide framework for future decisions on recreation facilities, programs, and services. The Plan also provides a foundation for building credibility and establishing consensus on important community issues. The planning team evaluated open space, facilities, programming, demographic projections, changing trends, and level of service analysis. The process involved the community in order to successfully transform their vision into a tangible implementation strategy that fosters support, political involvement, and community initiative to bring the vision to fruition.
