Place Where You Live:

Silver City District, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Milwaukee’s Silver City District attracts immigrant business owners, young professionals, artists, and working class families. The business corridor is a destination for ethnic restaurants known for their salsa bars, pho, mofongo, and papaya salad. People are working to create new meaning here. What it means to be a neighbor, what the possibilities for our neighborhood are, how we can connect to nature and green space, and celebrate the assets our neighborhood has despite public perception. There has been significant investment in restoring historical homes, the opening of a 24 acre park that was transformed from brown fields, and a new branch of the Urban Ecology Center which shares the joys of the natural world with urban dwellers and families.

We celebrate diversity, and work to protect what makes our neighborhood unique and leverage the investment and changes that are inherent in the evolution of a City.
