Village Manager Recruitment
The Village of Greendale is seeking an experienced, innovative Village Manager. The Village of Greendale, Wisconsin (2020 pop. 14,854) is a vibrant and historic community for education, business, services, culture, and community events serving the Milwaukee area. Covering 5.56 square miles, Greendale is conveniently linked by land, sea, and air to major markets worldwide. Located along the I-94 corridor in southeastern Wisconsin, Greendale is an hour and a half away from Chicago and Madison and two hours from Green Bay. Scheduled daily air service links Greendale with all major United States cities.
Known for its rich heritage, excellent schools, high quality of life, exciting year-round events, and beautiful green spaces, the Village of Greendale consistently ranks as a favorite small town to visit and a great place to live and work. Greendale was originally developed in 1936 as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal in the wake of the Great Depression. With the purchase of 3,400 acres of farmland southwest of Milwaukee’s city limits, the federal government’s Resettlement Administration had three main objectives: demonstrate a new kind of suburban community which combined both city and country life, provide good housing at reasonable rents, and to create jobs for unemployed workers. The Greendale Historic District has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.
