Zoning, Neighborhoods & Development Committee Meeting
Tuesday 4/14 1:30 PM
City Hall, Room 301-B
200 E Wells Street, Milwaukee

Common Ground has been working with the City of Milwaukee to change zombie properties into homes for families — but mortgage servicing companies Owen and Nationstar have been less than helpful.

City officials, as well as Common Ground, have talked about the need to get information from these companies. Now the City Attorney’s office has crafted an ordinance that would require these companies to notify the City of their inventory, more specifically of properties they are choosing not to pursue foreclosure on. This would greatly help with the City’s zombie property problem.

It is important that we have a strong showing of Common Ground members (wear your CG t-shirts!) at the hearing to show support and emphasize our commitment to to the fight for housing justice. Please email [email protected] if you can make it. Your presence really will make a difference!
