Fund For Lake Michigan

Envisioning the Upstream Greening of Lindsay Heights

  • Grant Recipient: Walnut Way
  • Amount: $50,000
  • Year: 2018
  • Watershed: Menomonee River
  • Focus Area: Green Infrastructure

Walnut Way will develop green infrastructure plans for five properties in the Lindsay Heights Neighborhood using a unique, resident-led, community engagement model. The list of target sites includes both non-profit and commercial properties in this once-vibrant neighborhood, which has experienced a significant socioeconomic decline since the 1950s. The Fund’s investment builds on a $150,000 national grant from the Institute for Sustainable Communities that Walnut Way received earlier this year.
