Watch the Recording of “A Data Dream: Using Data Science to Empower the Future of Lindsay Heights”

Walnut Way and the Northwestern Mutual Data Science Institute recently shared the results of a research project focused on an initiative to increase home ownership in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood. Check out the recorded webinar!

The project was a collaboration between Walnut Way and the NMDSI to gather and analyze existing data from various sources and determine how the information could be leveraged to access financial support for equitable housing and economic development in Lindsay Heights. Through the NMDSI, undergraduate and graduate students from both UW-Milwaukee and Marquette University analyzed nearly 20 years of data on the social, environmental and economic aspects of the neighborhood.

The results of this research project will help inform the Lindsay Heights economic development and planning process as well as the City of Milwaukee's comprehensive plan for Milwaukee's near northside.
