MANDI finalists compete for prestigious neighborhood development awards


RRF's Turtle Park Project has made it to the final rounds for the prestigious Brewers Community Foundation Public Space Award, what an honor!

Finalists in five categories will compete for the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation (MANDI), which recognize people and projects working to make Milwaukee a great place to live, work, and play.

A 40-member volunteer committee selected the finalists from among nominees submitted by the public.

“The MANDIs provide an opportunity to celebrate Milwaukee’s diverse neighborhoods, and the many passionate, committed people working together to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities,” said Laura Bray, executive director of LISC Milwaukee. “These finalists represent the future of our city.”

Sponsored by U.S. Bank, in partnership with LISC Milwaukee, the MANDIs recognize individuals, organizations and corporations that are improving conditions in Milwaukee’s central city neighborhoods.

A sixth category, the “Wells Fargo People’s Choice Award” will be given to the finalist who receives the most votes from the public. Public voting will take place in March at the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service website.
