MILWAUKEE, WI – The Board of Directors of the Granville-Brown Deer Chamber, a community and business partnership linking the northwest side of Milwaukee and the Village of Brown Deer, announced that after careful deliberation, the organization will dissolve.
“Through the work of Granville Business Improvement District (BID) 48 created in 2013, economic development and the specific needs of a very strong manufacturing and industrial community are currently being addressed,” said Barb Fleming, Granville-Brown Deer Chamber President. “An opportunity has been created for Brown Deer to promote the Village and refocus on the needs of
its existing area businesses. Both parties have agreed to continue their collaboration and cooperation on regional issues of mutual interest, including the current Brown Deer Road corridor study.”
The Chamber’s regional approach to addressing issues of mutual importance began in 2002. The focus of its work since then has been to lead the effort to improve the quality of life and general prosperity of residents, businesses, and visitors to Milwaukee’s Historic Granville area and the suburban Brown Deer community.
The Chamber has sponsored “Diversity Dialogue” seminars, community building events such as a free summer “Community Vibes” concert series, business and community expos, “Vision Series” luncheons, ribbon-cutting ceremonies to welcome new businesses, and a variety of networking events.
“The Chamber has continued to be a champion for positive economic investment in the area,” Fleming said. “Chamber board members celebrate the success of their efforts over the years and appreciate the support of area businesses and the community.”
Members who have paid dues for 2014 will be issued a refund.
