The Development Plan for Brookfield’s 124th Street Corridor
The 124th Street and Capitol Drive Neighborhood Plan area is one of ten Targeted Investment Areas (TIAs) in the City of Brookfield. In recognition of aging land uses and intergovernmental opportunities, the 2035 Comprehensive Plan has identified a need to establish a new and expanded 124th Street and Capitol Drive Neighborhood Plan to encompass the 124th Street corridor all the way from Capitol Drive to North Avenue.
The comprehensive planning process revealed a need to continue and expand focus along the North 124th Street corridor for a number of reasons:
The City has yet to complete a node/neighborhood plan for the Phase 3 planning area of this TIA - the last of the original TIA plans to be completed.
Wauwatosa has an assertive redevelopment vision east of North 124th Street, and coordination between the two cities is timely and desirable to maximize value on both sides of the road.
Brookfield policy makers identified a need for new attention to redevelopment potential near the intersections of Burleigh Road and North 124th Street and of North Avenue and North 124th Street.
As a result, the City intends to direct new attention to the North 124th Street corridor between the northern City limits and North Avenue. This initiative ideally would be accomplished through a new intergovernmental planning and implementation effort. Besides the City of Wauwatosa, the Villages of Butler and Elm Grove could be invited to participate at the north and south ends of the corridor.
The first step in the neighborhood planning process was to conduct a market analysis, which was completed and adopted by the Plan Commission on March 8, 2010. The Economic Development Committee was invited to attend the March 8, 2010 Plan Commission meeting to review and/or comment on the report.
