The 2010 census stated the population of the City of Milwaukee was over 594,000 people. Milwaukee ranked as the 28th largest city in the nation. The state of Wisconsin’s total population is 5,686,986, which means more than 10% of the state’s residents live in the city of Milwaukee.
In a city of this size, people settle on places to live, work and play. Neighborhoods consist of homeowners, renters, multi-family housing units. Many communities have people from man ethnic and cultural groups.
Over the years many Milwaukee neighborhoods have undergone change. There are older long-standing homes, new housing construction, areas with rehabilitated housing, traditional and modern apartments and condos.
The Johnsons Park Neighborhood is one example of an area that has seen tough times in the past. However it had a rebirth thanks to city and state investment to encourage home ownership. As a result residents have developed a strong community where people care about their homes, know their neighbors and are concerned about maintaining the positive image for area.
In order for the residents to continue experiencing all the benefits that our neighborhood has achieved, they must stay involved in promoting the positives attributes and identifying the negatives things that destroy our quality of life. JPNA welcomes the participation of all residents who care about making our community the best it can be.
