Following the announcement of a $250,000 gift for the revitalization of Johnsons Park from the Zilber Family Foundation and a $100,000 gift from the Rotary Club of Milwaukee for the park, Supervisor David Bowen released the following statement:

“I am grateful both to the Zilber Family Foundation and the Rotary Club of Milwaukee for ‘putting their money where their mouth is’ as Rick White Vice President of Corporate Communications of We Energies said at the Rotary Club luncheon. So many residents are excited that the total revitalization of Johnson Park will be near completion for the enjoyment of all residents who value high quality green space. Public-private partnerships are a key to increasing the quality of life in the 10th District, and both organizations have shown their commitment to the community and our neighborhoods with their generous donations.

“Johnsons Park is the only public park space in the 110-block Lindsay Heights neighborhood and it is an important gathering place for neighbors and families. These much-needed gifts will help us revitalize the park, and I want to personally thank both organizations for their contributions. On behalf of the 10th District, I want to commend them for their generosity. I also want to thank the Center for Resilient Cities and the Johnsons Park Neighborhood Association.”
