MCC’S WORK TO BUILD STRONG NEIGHBORHOODS FULL OF OPPORTUNITY

Can be seen in the Muskego Way neighborhood

MUSKEGO WAY FORWARD has strengthened the neighborhood, created new connections and opportunities, and built on the leadership of dedicated neighbors. This work is resident driven, staffed and supported by Milwaukee Christian Center.

MUSKEGO WAY FORWARD BEGAN IN OCTOBER 2014, when a group of neighborhoods including Muskego Way, Clarke Square and Historic Mitchell Street were awared a grant under the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP), a federally funded neighborhood revitalization initiative to catalyze community driven change. This two year grant led to the creation of Muskego Way Forward which has continued with financial support from local philanthropy and the dedicated involvement of neighbors.

Neighborhood Priorities


We center our work around 4 main community-identified priorities:

IMPROVING RESIDENT SAFETY & REDUCING CRIME
CULTIVATING HEALTHY
FAMILIES

DEVELOPMENT

Muskego Way Forward connects residents, partners and resources through asset based developments, a resident driven advisory team, block watch groups and partnerships with other organizations to advance collective revitalization efforts. Details can be found in the Muskego Way Neighborhood Revitalization Plan here.

The plan was developed by and with neighbors, business owners, and partners in the Muskego Way neighborhood and serves as a guide for individuals and organizations seeking to make a positive impact in the neighborhood.

If you’re looking to get involved in the neighborhood, MWF hosts a monthly neighborhood association meeting every second Monday of the month. Click the button below to see all neighborhood meeting dates.
