Strategic Planning Input
We are doing some strategic planning for the Walker’s Point Association and want your input. Feel free to complete this form for 1 or more of the initiatives and let us know what you want us to focus on for the next year.
Get “The Club” for your car
If you have a qualifying vehicle, you can visit MPD District 2 and ask for a Club to prevent theft.
MPD will provide a free steering wheel lock to any Milwaukee resident who owns a Kia (2011 or newer) or Hyundai (2015 or newer) with proof of ownership. To receive a lock, contact any Milwaukee Police District while supplies last. 414-933-4444
Spring Clean Up
It’s been a long, cold winter so we’re encouraging people to get out of their homes and businesses to collaborate with neighbors for a common good – a cleaner city! We want Walker’sPoint to stay the vibrant, living neighborhood it is, and for residents and businesses to take pride in their neighborhood. Jane Jacobs, an activist who influenced urban studies said, “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” We’d add to that statement by saying that not only should cities be created by everyone, but kept clean by everyone, too.
Arrive at MobCraft Beer anytime between 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM to pick up supplies and select your area to clean up.
Head off to your area and collect anything that doesn’t belong. Find something unique? Keep it close at hand and you could win a prize.
Return to MobCraft Beer to drop off your bags, supplies and treasures.
MobCraft is providing a free pint for all participants 21 and older.
McDonalds is providing coupons to all participants for a free ice cream cone through May at the McDonald’s on 1st and National.
414 Flowers is providing a trio of flowers to all participants starting in May redeemable at their National Avenue pop-up.
Awards and prizes will be announced after 4:00 PM. You do not need to be present to win.
#GivingFest Flash Fundraiser for WPA Scholarship
Help us Help our Youth!
The WPA will be holding a flash fundraiser in January and February to raise money for the WPA Scholarship. For every $1,000 we raise, we will award an additional scholarship.
The scholarships go to Bradley Tech graduating seniors to further their education at an institution of their choice. The recipients are selected by the Tech Alumni Association. We have been partnering with them and matching donor, Bob Feind since 2019. Mr. Feind is a local business owner and a founding member of the Walker’s Point Association. Each year, he matched the scholarship so we were able to help additional students continuing learning.
We established some key levels of giving, but every dollar helps. If you donate at the Signature Scholarship level, you have the opportunity to co-brand the scholarship.
Celebrate Walker’s Point: Sept. 20-27
In lieu of the 5th Street Fest this year, we are going to spread the love and host a new experience in Walker’s Point. Businesses can participate in Walker’s Point Festival Week by becoming a member of WPA, letting us know what special, promotion, event or offering they have for the community and then help get the word out about the week. If you are already a member, please send in your participation ideas to Kathy at email@example.com (even if it is that you are open for business). If you aren’t a member, please become a member https://walkerspointassociation.org/membership/ and then send your ideas to Kathy.
