Update Frequency: Quarterly or as needed
Current owners of these sites have not paid their property taxes for one or more years. Based on at least an initial screening of these properties (including a historical land use check and a site visit), the City has decided not to foreclose because of potential environmental contamination. However, the City (using State Statute 75.106) may begin foreclosure, and then assign the foreclosure judgment to a new party that will remediate and redevelop the site. Testing may demonstrate that the site is clean or needs limited environmental clean-up.
DCD maintains a list of these sites. If you find a property of interest on this list, check Map Milwaukee at city.milwaukee.gov for a map of the area around the property and check http://assessments.milwaukee.gov/default.asp to view more information about the property.
