Lindsay Heights, named after Bernice Lindsay in 1977, boasts a collective of businesses, community organizations, and neighbors that are leading revitalization efforts through food, wellness, and entrepreneurship. Lindsay Heights is the closest neighborhood to downtown on Milwaukee’s north side and less than 10 minutes from Lake Michigan, making it a prime location for perpetual redevelopment and homeownership and an ideal location to live, work and play. New homes are being built and others renovated, new urban gardens and pocket parks dot the landscape as existing residents seek to increase their power, equity and prevent the erosion of the existing homeownership and its foundation for generational wealth among residents, specifically African Americans.
The objective of the Lindsay Heights NID is to provide assistance to homeowners through community improvement projects in order to eliminate blight, stabilize the housing stock and housing related issues, install neighborhood lighting for safety concerns, add distinctive neighborhood signage, enhanced green space and landscaping for a healthier environment and the removal of heat islands while also positioning the area for equity and inclusion in development with the City of Milwaukee and its resources, and otherwise enhance the Lindsay Heights NID.
