Everyone has places in Milwaukee they care about and that are important to them. Milwaukee’s built environment is home to many of the area’s most treasured buildings, historic homes, beautiful parks and unique creative spaces to enjoy. We are proud to share that last year 511 homes, 245 vacant lots and 19 commercial properties were sold by the Department of City Development. We are delighted by the inspiring and successful rehab stories from our buyers, each of whom took a once blighted property and breathed new life into it.
We encourage you to celebrate the places that are meaningful to you personally, and our community as a whole. If you are ready to tell the world about a place that matters to you in MKE, please snap a photo in front of a place or space that is important to you or that needs recognition for it’s positive impact on Milwaukee. Or perhaps you’ve already bought a City-owned property and want to show off your rehab progress with us. We want to see your best MKE places!
So, get ready! Print out your This Place Matters to MKE sign, snap your photo and share it on facebook or twitter using both of the hashtags #ThisPlaceMatters and #MKEstrong. Five individual posts will be selected at random by May 31 to WIN one of these neighborhood posters of your choice. Winners must also tag or mention one of our DCD accounts to be eligible: facebook.com/milwaukeedcd OR twitter.com/milwaukeedcd
Now, get out there and show us what you love about Milwaukee!
