Planning For Your Safe Return

Your safety is our top priority. It’s why we’ve expanded upon our clean, safe and friendly efforts. From installing and maintaining public sanitation stations to cleaning high-touch surface areas and vinyl-wrapped picnic tables, our Clean Sweep Ambassadors are out in full force. In addition, our Public Service Ambassadors are canvasing the streets to ensure your comfort by staging signage that encourages social distance and facial coverings. These are just a few of the many steps we’ve taken to create a safe environment. So, MKE it back - we'll keep you safe here! Learn more on how you can support our downtown businesses safely.
