Making Our Region the Best It Can Be

Better City Superior is a group of citizens and businesses working to grow and enhance our community. Established by Superior Mayor Bruce Hagen in late 2013, we are a nonprofit grassroots organization that is local, privately led and privately funded. Our vision is to ensure that Superior has a future as bright as the people who live here.

Current Focus: Better City Superior Exposition District

Since 2013, we have been working with economic development experts and citizens to brainstorm and research ideas to help Superior grow. We came up with the Better City Superior exposition district, a public/private initiative aimed at redeveloping downtown Superior.

An exposition district is an area allowed to collect its own taxes on tourism-related spending. This includes food and beverage, and lodging. The money is used to fund development projects that increase visitors and spending in the city, like stadiums, convention centers and movie theaters. In the November 2016 election, Superior voters approved the Better City Superior referendum by a wide margin: 75.47% versus 24.53%. The referendum results indicated bipartisan support for the Better City Superior Exposition District.

A Bright Future Ahead

Superior is filled with people who truly care about each other and who want to ensure that our community has a prosperous future. Superior is a great place to live, work and play, and with the help of our state legislators, we can attract private investments, create more jobs and produce more revenue for our region. Our community will grow as a result of it, and Wisconsin will be stronger because of it.
