Its 2008 estimated census was 101,025. The Town of Green Bay is located several miles northeast of the city. It is the third-largest city in the state of Wisconsin, after Milwaukee and Madison.

Green Bay is the principal city of the Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area, which covers Brown, Kewaunee, and Oconto Counties and had a combined population of 282,599 at the 2000 census. The 2008 estimated population of the Green Bay metropolitan area is 302,935. Green Bay is an industrial city with several meatpacking and paper plants, and a port on the bay of Green Bay, an arm of Lake Michigan. It is home to the National Railroad Museum; the Neville Public Museum, with exhibitions of art, history, and science; and the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay. The Green Bay Packers professional football team was formed in the city in 1919 and joined the National Football League (NFL) in 1921. Green Bay is by far the smallest market with an NFL team, although the Packers are avidly supported in the larger Milwaukee market and throughout Wisconsin and in Michigan in the Upper Peninsula. Green Bay is unofficially nicknamed "Titletown, USA" for the number of NFL titles (13) it has won over the years (including the first two Super Bowls and two further victories in 1997 and 2011). The name appears on the city seal, is used by the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce for its web address, and variations of the word appear in the name of more than two dozen local businesses. Green Bay has been awarded the title of All-America City twice, in 1964, and 1999.

SAGE Green Bay

SAGE Gallery Feature!

The Unity + Diversity call for art was inspired by the BLM and BIPOC lives matter movement. We asked local artists to give us their vision so that we could put it out there for everyone to take in.

Early on we developed an expectation that community institutions would be a part of the dialog we are trying to generate. The Green Bay Police Department did not hesitate when we asked to hang U+D art in their lobby. The placement of our art in that space is meant to give everyone who passes through the door an opportunity to reflect on the complex issues our community is facing. We hope it generates empathy and constructive activism.

We’ve included a link below to the GBPD post about the partnership.

Pictured are the three artists featured at GBPD, Leah Reed of JOSIL Arts, Quentin Daniels of Queart collection, and Betsy Wijas of Batter up bake shop. Also pictured are Laura Schley, Public Art Coordinator for the City of Green Bay Government, and Stacey Burkhart, founder and president of SAGE Green Bay.

Please check out the other features of local artists being supported by the downtown business community! And follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on new features.!

#GreenBayGoesOn during this pandemic and our City of Green Bay Public Works has been working hard painting new bike lanes! We are excited with the new bike lanes on Radisson and Irwin not only because we are meeting and exceeding goals established in our City’s Safe Walk and Bike Plan, but also because these bike lanes provide a critical connection to Bay Beach Amusement Park from the new multi-use path along North Webster Ave.

As always, if you have questions or concers, please reach out to us.

The Green Bay Packers were founded on August 11, 1919 by two former high-school football rivals, Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun. Mr. Lambeau successfully solicited the Indian Packing Company for funds to outfit the new team. The Green Bay Packers have played in their founding city longer than any other team in the NFL.

Bridge lights red/white/blue tonight for 9/11 ? **Update. Mayor Genrich confirmed this will be happening tonight.
Went past this for 3 days and nothing. The bike lanes in Green Bay are so bad I went through 1 rin and three tires now because of rocks glass potholes Debris.. I ride in the road and avoid the bike lanes aswell as many more . What do we need to do to get this problem solved with the bike lanes? Hire me to clean them like I did today ?
I understand the city Council has recently received a request to defund the Green Bay Police Department. I am sure i am not the only member of the community who adamantly opposes defunding our police! If anything, we should be increasing funding! Every police officer should have a body camera and a dash camera, so events can be captured in real time and a complete picture of events is available for transparency. Not some skewed version of events someone may have captured on their cell phone. Officers should be engaged in continued education, as other professions are to keep their skills sharp, such as de-escalation training. Removing our liaison officers in our schools will only escalate violence in our schools and is a horrible idea. Social workers can only do so much and providing protection is not one of those things. We should definitely not be removing tools from their tool box! Rubber bullets and tear gas are nonlethal ways of dispersing rioters and looters who are threatening property, other citizens and the police. There have been many peaceful protests in Brown County. If people are protesting peacefully, then there is no need for officers to deploy measures to protect property, citizens and themselves, but having the vital tools to do so is imperative! Dr. Tony Evans has suggested that churches need to get involved in our communities and have suggested they partner with homeless shelters and police departments to build relationships. I challenge churches to do so! Invite them in and get to know them! I worked in an after school program for a few years at an east side elementary that was primarily filled with minority students. As a service learning project, the kids wrote thank you cards to the police officers and made them friendship bracelets out of rubber bands. We then invited a couple of officers in to receive those items and they spent an hour with the kids talking about what they do and having a Q&A session. The officers brought the kids coloring books and pencils. The kids were thrilled! They learned the police were there to serve and protect and that they were not something to be feared! This is how we make positive change in our communities! Through communication and getting to know those who risk their lives to protect ours! DO NOT DEFUND THE POLICE!
I want people to boycott business' so the city goes bankrupt!
