 The Brady Street BID

The Brady Street Area Association work closely with the The Brady Street BID. The Brady Street Business Improvement District (BID#11) branched out of the Association in the early 1990s. The BID’s first project included new lighting to promote safety in the neighborhood, along with beautification efforts such as benches, new street signs, garbage cans, and bike racks. It was around this time that Brady Street also became an historical district. Other projects included the building of the marsupial bridge, a walking bridge that connects Brady St. with Commerce St. on the opposite side of the Milwaukee river underneath the Holton St. viaduct; and the Green Flow project displaying pictographs in our concrete between the road and the sidewalk. Today, the BID, which represents all of the businesses on Brady Street, and BSAA work together to support Brady Street area and its continued growth. Brady Street BID
