The Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM) will hold its Annual Meeting near the community park in Westlawn Gardens tomorrow to highlight the nearly $300 million investment underway for the Choice Neighborhoods area. Last September, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded the City of Milwaukee and HACM a $30 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation grant to transform the Westlawn public housing development and surrounding community. Over $250 million in additional public and private investment is already committed to the five-year effort to impact the housing, people, educational options and neighborhood amenities and services of the area.
The HACM Annual Meeting will begin with a “Breakfast Block Party” that will feature information stations about the Choice Neighborhoods Transformation Plan. The formal Board of Commissioners meeting will provide additional information about recent developments in the Plan and also highlight individuals and organizations that represent the best in community spirit.
