The district alderman has requested a proposal for development of the old army reserve site. The site, named Eco Bay, is welcomed by the Bay View community to increase density and provide a home for eco-conscious homeowners.

The ancillary units can be a positive addition to the neighborhood as they add density on an as-needed basis, yet retain the fabric of the Bay View neighborhood. As more people in Bay View follow this model, the neighborhood becomes safer as areas that typically are empty are filled with responsible adults.

Eco Bay, the first 100% solar development of its kind has been proposed for an old army reserve for the Bay View neighborhood.

Financial correlation between the site and the target market has been drawn, enabling the community to be able to support the cost and potential of the property.

Understanding the demographics of the neighborhood by looking at average age and income, the house would be marketed for both families and seniors.

New and old families are happy to live a “greener” life. The Eco Bay development in Bay View is within walking distance to several forms of public transportation, including the proposed extension of the Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee (KRM) rail line. The solar home will be just one of among many other solar homes. Owners of the solar home will be doing their part in contributing to living a greener lifestyle. Each unit will be configured to suit the needs of multi or single families. The development also requests units for seniors, who wish to live greenly independent.

Energy produced on-site increases the value of their property and Wisconsin does not tax the property on value-added by energy producing components. The development will also serve as an example for not only Milwaukee, but the entire country to follow.
