Havenwoods Neighborhood Improvement District

The Havenwoods community consists of primarily affordable, post WW2 developments of ranch style homes with large yards on a traditional urban grid.  The Havenwoods is home to vast green spaces and recreation destinations such as the Havenwoods State Forest, McGovern Park, Westlawn Gardens, Green Tree Community Garden and numerous pocket parks.

Havenwoods enjoys a significant level of civic engagement via block watch activities, volunteerism for special events, and resident leadership training.

The community is economically supported by over 70 industrial businesses including Direct Supply, Brady Corporation, Fed-Ex and HellermannTyton. In addition to those global corporate headquarters, there are smaller family owned manufacturing companies that have over 50 years of history in Havenwoods.  Retail goods and services include a major grocery store chain, national franchises for apparel and national and local restaurants serving Havenwoods.  Havenwoods businesses currently support the community through job creation and through the Business Improvement District #31.

Quality of life amenities and services in the community include initiatives brought forth by the lead community development agency Havenwoods Economic Development Corporation.  Amenities include summer community concerts, home repair assistance, community gardening and community banquets.  Resources in Havenwoods include but are not limited to Lighthouse Youth Center, Silver Spring Neighborhood Center, Milwaukee Achievers and Milwaukee Job Corp.
