Activities included are such things as - an annual Spring CleanUp. - conducting candidate forums, where residents can question candidates running for public office. - working to improve area schools. - promoting safety organizations such as neighborhood block watches. - helping to create business associations within the Capitol West area.

Mission: Thirty years ago, a group of concerned local people gathered together to create an organization that would be devoted to the interests of the neighborhoods on the West Side of Milwakee. The organization was named the Capitol West Neighborhood Association (CWNA). CWNA has partnered with city and county officials to help enforce the principles of strong, healthy, prosperous neighborhoods. Our area ranges north from Hampton, south to Center; east from 60th, west to 108th; within the City of Milwaukee.

My Vote

08/14/2018

Remember to vote tomorrow, Tuesday, in the 2018 partisan primary. For many Capitol West residents, you will be also voting for your Aldermanic Representative. Earlier this year long-time Fifth District Alderman Jim Bohl announced that he would not seek reelection in the fall. A number of residents announced that they wanted to the vacant position. In order to facilitate public understanding of the candidates and their qualification for the position on July 30th, the Capitol West Neighborhood Association (CWNA) sponsored a Candidate Forum featuring candidates for Alderman in the Fifth District of Milwaukee. The forum, moderated by CWNA Board member Cal McIntyre, took place in the Fellowship Hall of Abiding Word Lutheran Church located at 9420 West Capitol Drive. The forum was attended by 60 - 70 local residents who had the opportunity to ask questions of the candidates. All candidates were required to answer questions as they were posed by the Moderator. After the session, residents spoke individually with the candidates and examined their literature. Many thanks to the Pastor and members of Abiding Word who made holding the forum possible.

2017 CWNA BEAUTIFICATION CONTEST SELECTS TWENTY WINNERS

Did you see blue “Winner” signs on some lawns recently? Well, here’s the reason.

For the eighth year the Capitol West Neighborhood Association had named twenty Winners in its annual Beautification Contest. They were chosen from some 60 single family homes and duplexes throughout the CWNA area which were nominated to compete in the contest. The winners were chosen by the teams of volunteers who drove the streets of the Capitol West Neighborhood to make the initial nominations. Each winner received a blue Winner sign in place of the red Nominee sign in their yard. They are also invited to an awards dinner held in Abbie’s Banquet Hall and catered by Bunzels. At the dinner all the winners will meet and view pictures of the winning properties. Additionally, Jeff Spence, from the MMSD, will share pictures of rain gardens and discuss how to people can create and manage them. Each CWNA Beautification Contest winner will receive an Award Certificate from the CWNA and local aldermen.
2017 contest winners may not be selected again as a winner for three years so that others will have an opportunity to become winners in future contests.

Nominees not selected this year can compete again next year. So start working and planning your landscaping projects now!

The annual contest is a Capitol West effort to give recognition to the hard working residents of the area whose yards and houses add beauty and character to their neighborhoods. With its business partner, NorthShore Bank, Capitol West is devoted to helping to improve Milwaukee’s west side and bring public awareness to its value as a place to live and work.

Persons interested in learning more about the contest can contact Cal McIntyre at [email protected] or you can now reach us at [email protected].

Our Beautification Contest is kicking off this month!

Join us to make this seasonal event better than ever.

The rescheduled meeting for the Beautification Contest Volunteers is Tuesday, June 13th at 6:00 p.m. in the clubhouse of the Villa Du Cour condominium complex. The Clubhouse is located at 9014 West Lisbon Ave. We have been informed that the Metro Milwaukee Sewerage Commission will sponsor new special awards for the contest to be given to homes with exceptional rain gardens.

Several additional teams of judges are needed. If you're a former winner, come on out and help somebody else become a winner. It will basically take you four afternoons over the course of the whole summer and fall. You'll learn a lot more about Milwaukee's West Side and you will be helping to create the kind of neighborhood you want to live in. If you have any questions, call Cal McIntyre at 418-5682 and come to the meeting.

We will be discussing the following topics of interest and encourage your input and participation:

- Valerie Sauvé will highlight Dineen park and the neighborhood around it as the first to share about the neighborhoods and parks that make up the CWNA. We plan to feature a different neighborhood at each meeting.
- Cal McIntyre will present plans for the 2017 CWNA Beautification Contest.

The CWNA May meeting that was set for Thursday, May 11th is rescheduled. There is a conflict that evening with a Town Hall meeting that Alderman Jim Bohl has scheduled for his district.

Thus, the May Capitol West Neighborhood Association meeting will be held Thursday, May 18th at 6 pm at the Enderis Park Field House. We hope to see you there on the 18th!

04/08/2017

Hello Neighbors!

We had a good meeting and a productive discussion which included several neighborhood leaders in attendance. Our next meeting is scheduled for May 11th at 6pm. We are in the process of checking if we can use Enderis Park's Field House. We are also looking to have a guest speaker next time, possibly someone regarding sustainable gardening. We also talked about featuring a different neighborhood at each meeting to find out about the different neighborhoods that make up CWNA and see what each has to offer. We saw this as a way to connect our neighborhoods, get to know each other, and be the impetus to trigger a free exchange of ideas that helps our community thrive.

More to come.
Valerie

Ballot Signatures Needed My name is Eric Hildeman, and I’m seeking signatures to get me on the ballot this fall for Wisconsin State Assembly District #17, on the Green Party ticket. For the Capitol West neighborhood, this will mean those who live east of 88th St. south of Capitol, and those who live east of 84th St. north of Capitol. The Covid-19 crisis has made it almost impossible to get signatures in person, like at a festival, so I’m asking for your signature here on Facebook. In spite of the pandemic, Wisconsin law still requires ballot signatures to be originals. No photocopies, scanned documents, or electronic signatures are permitted. That means original signatures have to be collected through the mail. This is just as silly as the April 7th election debacle we just went through, but that’s part of why I’m running. Putting obstacles in the election process must be stopped! If you are a registered voter, and would like to sign for my nomination, PLEASE let me know. I can drop off or mail you a ballot petition to sign, along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and you can return it to me through the mail. I hope you’ll please spread the word to any friends or neighbors who are registered voters. Please visit my page, facebook.com/HildyEric, or my website, http://www.hildy4wi17.com. Any questions, or if you would simply like to talk to me about why I’m running, and/or my stance on the issues, feel free to contact me: [email protected] (414) 524-9629 Twitter: @HildyEric Thank you, Eric J. Hildeman
Dear Neighbor, Early Voting ends this Friday, February 14th. Please see the link for the in-person polling location. Don't let the weather discourage you from making your voice heard. Additionally, as the February 18th, Primary Election approaches I want to say Thank You! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve you on the Milwaukee Common Council. Thank you for welcoming me to your Block Watch parties, community meetings, and for your participation in my office surveys on key projects affecting your neighborhood, as well as the emails and phone calls expressing your concerns and needs for our district, and most importantly to share your opinion. With just over one year in office, I am excited to share my committee assignments, board service, and some of the successes. Due to my previous political roles in the state and county, career in the private sector, and education background, I was selected to serve on the following: • Licensing Committee • Judiciary & Legislation Committee • Visit Milwaukee Board The successes we have accomplished together, in such a short time frame, are due to my attentiveness to the large volumes of emails, phone calls, surveys, block watches/parties, community, and face-to-face meetings in the district or at my office. They are as follows: • Successfully closed a nuisance bar and banned future establishments at this location to obtain a liquor license. • Added over 200 new jobs to the district with the relocation and development of one of the largest distributors of millwork products in the Midwest. • Passed a resolution to restore domestic partnership benefits for city employees. • Passed a resolution to combat discrimination against women in the workplace. • Authored Budget Amendment to include funding to provide free vital records for homeless youth to apply for jobs and stable housing. • Restored funding to the Fire and Police Commission to hire and recruit new police officers and firefighters in this years’ budget. • Funding recommendation from the Federal Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STP) to start the construction of Lisbon Avenue. • Hosted a districtwide Budget Listening Session, Community Meeting on Reckless Driving, and countless neighborhood meetings, throughout the district, as well as a Janes Walk. • Hosted the first, ever, inaugural Explore 5th District tour for residents and community members to showcase our vibrant family-friendly neighborhoods, restaurants, and businesses, throughout the district. • And finally, drafted legislation for the towing and auctioning of unregistered vehicles and discouraging individuals without valid driver’s licenses from operating a motor vehicle and to enforce current laws for such violations. All of these accomplishments, efforts, and ideals could not have been made possible had I not listened to constituents, such as you. I have always done my best work partnering with and listening to the people I serve. It is for this reason I am seeking re-election to a four-year term so that we can continue the great work we have started. When I am re-elected, my plan to continue executing your requests includes: • Revitalization of the business corridors throughout the entire district to reflect a new decade. • Work to update the Westside area business plan to reflect the interests of constituents and address the changing needs of Lisbon Avenue and Burleigh. • Create area plans to address business development and revitalization on Capitol Drive and Park Place Business Park. • Continue fighting to secure Federal Funding to repave and reconstruct the entire stretch of Lisbon Avenue to address the crumbling road and speeding/safety issues. • Partner with block watches and neighborhood associations to engage neighbors in solution-driven discussions to keep our neighborhoods and parks safe, quarterly. • Continue working towards creative solutions for fixing potholes, increasing police response times to neighborhood complaints, speeding, and the quality of life services. Therefore, I ask for your vote on next Tuesday, February 18th, for the chance to continue serving as your Alderwoman of the 5th District. P.S. Please also find copies of my office newsletters from the winter and fall of 2019, as well as a few other helpful resources to report your concerns at 286-CITY and stay up to date on districtwide news by signing up for E-Notify.
