Milwaukie strives to stay true to itself and the spirit of the community, even if that's unconventional at times, while upholding a strong sense of optimism that keeps everyone persistent in their pursuit for shared successes. Woven through the fabric of the community is the value placed on ingenuity. Milwaukie prizes creativity to get things done by finding innovative solutions, and residents embrace originality to find new ideas that better the community.
