The Village of Brown Deer introduced and hosted the first town hall series on January 12 about economic and community development. In case you missed the town hall, a recording of the session is here for your viewing. This session focused on the Village’s role when it comes to working with businesses, establishing land uses for a wide variety of demands, and creating future opportunities for economic development. Community Development Director Nate Piotrowski and Village Manager Tyler Burkart showcased several areas staff and officials are engaging with developers and other parties to improve various spaces for the community. The presentation also captured how park and open space is used to enhance residential and commercial areas in Brown Deer. Lastly, the Village provided an update on future projects, such as Ten Mile Park, the Farmers Market, the Comprehensive Park Plan, and any others that come to fruition.
This new town hall series called “Get to Know Brown Deer” offers residents, businesses, and visitors a chance to learn more about the community in which they live, work, and play. These sessions will be held both in-person or virtually with a recording of each session available on our website for those community members unable to attend. Each structured meeting will include a 30-minute presentation on an announced topic followed by a Q&A period. Poll questions will also be mixed into each session to offer participants more chances to supply their ideas, thoughts, and feelings. The Village hopes these sessions allow the public to learn more about Brown Deer while giving staff a venue to listen to public perspectives. Future sessions for 2023 will entail meeting and engaging with elected officials who represent Brown Deer at several levels of government, policing strategies to combat crime trends, and public works services available to the public.
