Silver City, Burnham Park and Layton Park residents and others who are interested in the future of these neighborhoods will gather June 8 to learn what topics will be addressed in the Layton Boulevard West Quality of Life Plan. They also will be invited to get involved in the planning process during the summer.
LBWN has spent the last few months collecting input and information from neighbors and other stakeholders to inform the planning process. This input gave the organization a sense of how neighbors see their community today and what they want it to be in the near future. The Quality of Life Plan being developed by LBWN will outline the steps and actions necessary to take the neighborhood from where it is now to the vision that neighbors have for their community.
“At the conclusion of the meeting LBWN will be looking for neighbors and other stakeholders who are interested in developing strategies for each topic area,” according to Daniel Adams, Neighborhood Plan Coordinator. Sign up sheets with dates and times for workgroup meetings and visioning sessions will be available at the meeting.
LBWN is a part of the Zilber Neighborhood Initiative and the Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative, a partnership between the city’s Neighborhood Improvement Development Corp. (NIDC) and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
