THIS MONTH’S MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:Layton Boulevard West Neighbors (LBWN)
LBWN builds strong and healthy neighborhoods in Milwaukee by stabilizing and revitalizing the Silver City, Burnham Park and Layton Park neighborhoods.
Founded by the School Sisters of St. Francis in 1995, LBWN's comprehensive neighborhood revitalization strategies include homeownership promotion, economic and real estate development, community and youth leadership activities and healthy living initiatives. UEDA has worked with LBWN since 2005, and they are an active member of Take Root Milwaukee.
In September LBWN celebrated three milestone events!
The grand opening of Our Daily Salt, winner of the Silver City Business Plan competition. Their business offers handmade, wooden kitchen items made in their workshop and a gallery featuring art made by local artists. Read more here>>
Completion of LBWN Rent-to-Own Homes, a development that transformed 24 bank and city-owned properties in the Layton Boulevard West, Muskego Way and Clarke Square neighborhoods into affordable, fully-renovated homes and commercial spaces, resulting in a $6.3 million investment. Learn more>>
