The 2019 Partnership for Resilient Cities planning grant will allow Walnut Way to engage Northside Milwaukee residents in the planning and design of at least two community-embedded street and stormwater runoff diversion projects that will mitigate urban flooding in Milwaukee’s combined sewer system. The project sites will represent an estimated total of five acres that are presently paved or water impermeable.
This spring, ArtWorks for Milwaukee will offer a Spring Arts Internship at Walnut Way. Teenagers from Lindsay Heights will create a small mural to beautify Sunshine Park, on 14th and North Avenue. The group of eight to 12 participants will learn about the process of creating a mural through lessons on content development and painting.
Please join us for the first of a short series of planning meetings. This is an opportunity for neighbors to have a seat at the table for the largest annual event in Lindsay Heights, Harvest Day! We hope to make this years Harvest Day the best Harvest Day in the history of our neighborhood; we can only do that with support of our greatest stakeholders…our neighbors!
