Wisconsin Clean Cities' History
Wisconsin Clean Cities was established in June 1994, and
was located within the state Department of Administration's
(DOA) Madison office building, under the Bureau of Transportation
The WCC organization had direct benefit to the Governor's
Alternative Fuels Task Force by serving as a community-government-business
partnership of select industry participants in the Southeastern
Wisconsin severe ozone nonattainment region, encompassing
Waukesha, Washington, Ozaukee, Kenosha, Milwaukee and Racine
In 1998, the WCC program made the transition to the Southeastern
Wisconsin ozone nonattainment area and became an independent,
self-sustaining coalition within the Southeastern Wisconsin
community. In July 1999, Wisconsin Clean Cities hired its
first Executive Director, and was housed out of the downtown
office of the local utility We Energies. Today, Wisconsin
Clean Cities is housed in the same building.
Since its inception, Wisconsin Clean Cities has grown since
its humble beginnings. In 2011, WCC started an initiative
to expand its designation to encompass the entire state
in order to reflect the work they do outside of Southeastern
In the last 18 years, the Board of Directors has increased
from five members to over twelve, membership is at a decade
high, and the number of stakeholders is well over 2,000.
Since 2005, WCC and its partners has displaced almost 13
million gasoline gallons equivalent of petroleum through
the promotion of alternative fuels and advanced technology
