Entrepreneurs and people from the Milwaukee’s Harambee neighborhood toured city-owned, vacant business buildings Thursday. The goal is to get business back in Harambee.
According to Aldwerwoman Milele Coggs, the so-called “Buy Back the Block tour” is a chance to be more creative with building showings.
There are a lot of vacant commercial buildings in the north Milwaukee neighborhood of Harambee. In fact, Harambee along with Metcalfe Park has the most vacant buildings in the city.
However, a new effort is underway to change those numbers.
