NEIGHBORHOOD
DEVELOPMENT

MISSION: We work with residents to create a vibrant community that reflects the culture and values of Harambee and Riverwest.  We believe that neighborhood development needs to begin with a resident-driven approach that enhances individual neighborhoods and connects the City of Milwaukee.
WHAT WE DO: We facilitate ways for neighbors to connect with each other and address their most critical concerns.  Whether you have safety concerns, looking to rehab your home, or want to get more involved in your community — Riverworks staff is here to help!
WHO WE SERVE: We focus on fostering healthy and thriving communities for Harambee and Riverwest residents.

Neighborhood Improvement Districts are a great tool to protect and enhance neighborhood assets.
