Infrastructure

Waukesha County’s economic vitality depends on a modern and robust infrastructure network coupled with efficient and collaborative governments. A vibrant business climate depends on services such as providing a safe and sustainable supply of drinking water to our communities, connecting people to jobs, facilitating the flow of goods and services via safe and modern transportation networks and continuing to advance fiscally sound and efficient communities – all provided in a seamless and cost-effective manner.

  1. Drive discussion and advocate for statewide, sustainable, long-term transportation funding solutions.
  2. Advocate for completion of the I-94 East-West corridor between 70th Street and 16th Street.
  3. Support the continued advancement of municipal service consolidation.
  4. Continue to evaluate flexible transportation options that connect people looking for work with jobs that are available in Waukesha County.
  5. Support the completion of the West Waukesha Bypass.
  6. Support the City of Waukesha in the implementation of borrowing and returning water from Lake Michigan.

We encourage our members to get involved and support our efforts to ensure a strong, pro-business climate in Waukesha County and its surroundings. If you are interested in joining a policy committee, please contact us.
