Lindsay Heights Neighborhood Improvement District (NID): Empowering Communities for Lasting Change
Why start a Neighborhood Improvement District?
The idea of a Neighborhood Improvement District (NID) can provide equity and ownership to communities that have been historically underserved or subject to displacement. By creating NIDs, the community can be provided with necessary resources that may otherwise not be available in their area.
These resources could include things such as infrastructure improvements, funding for local businesses or initiatives, and economic development programs. In addition, NIDs can provide an opportunity for citizens to have a say in the decisions being made in their neighborhood that may otherwise be out of their control. This allows for greater equity in decision making and helps ensure a more inclusive process.
As such, this is an effective way to address long-term displacement issues and ensure that the community is empowered to take ownership of its future. These improvements can improve quality of life and create a more sustainable, equitable neighborhood. A NID can be a powerful tool in creating lasting change for communities in need.
When did Lindsay Heights NID become established?
The Milwaukee Common Council established the Lindsay Heights Neighborhood Improvement District on November 4, 2022. This district was created to support economic development and revitalization in the Lindsay Heights area, including investments in infrastructure, housing, job creation, and public safety. The district includes 3,067 parcels of land within a three-square-mile radius that are owned by Milwaukee County, Milwaukee Public Schools, and the City of Milwaukee.
How is Lindsay Heights NID funded?
