Background: The Milwaukee Bicycle Collective, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission of making bicycling accessible to all. Milwaukee Bicycle Collective, Inc., is a volunteer driven organization that has partnered with Milwaukee Public Schools to provide the district with valuable resources for bicycle repair and instruction, as well as refurbished bicycles, parts, and accessories.

Milwaukee Public Schools bicycling programs within the Department of Recreation and Community Services and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction – Health and Physical Education, do not have adequate resources to repair and service the bicycles owned by the district for student use. Entering into this agreement with the Milwaukee Bicycle Collective, Inc., further ensures all Milwaukee Public Schools children involved in the district’s bicycling programs are using safe equipment while also providing the Milwaukee Bicycle Collective, Inc., with needed storage space to provide this valuable service.

The Administration is requesting approval of a lease agreement commencing on October 1, 2018, and terminating June 30, 2019, with a lease rate of $1 in order to provide space for Milwaukee Bicycle Collective, Inc., to further advance its work with Milwaukee Public Schools in providing services to students that promote growth and create additional opportunities for future success.
