Community Introduction

Oak Creek and Franklin are two of the fastest growing communities in Wisconsin with a combined population of about 70,000. Oak Creek is located along the western shore of Lake Michigan in the southeast corner of Milwaukee County and adjacent to the City of Milwaukee.

Oak Creek shares its western border with Franklin at 27th Street and together the two cities have prepared a comprehensive development plan for the 27th Street Corridor, also known as Highway 41. Oak Creek is in the process of developing the Drexel Town Square at Drexel and Howell Avenues as a mixed use destination, with a civic center, retail, housing, and dining options. The I-94 Interchange at Drexel Avenue completed in 2013 provides convenient access to both the cities of Oak Creek and Franklin.

Franklin and Oak Creek residents enjoy both the suburban and rural atmosphere while, at the same time, taking advantage of the services, professional sports and cultural activities of the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Both communities share a commitment to planned growth while preserving the best of their rural atmosphere.
