On Tuesday, December 29, 2020, The City of Milwaukee hosted a groundbreaking for new homes in two city-developed subdivisions at Walnut Circle and Josey Heights. The owners of the new houses are taking advantage of the City’s incentives of one dollar lots and a $30,000 forgivable grant.

Walnut Circle and Josey Heights were developed in the mid- 2000s to spur new home construction and owner occupancy. These subdivisions follow a long line of new home construction and investment in the area preceded by Johnson’s Park, City Homes and the Lindsay Heights developments.

Heidi Moore was the first to take advantage of the incentives and closed on her new home in Josey Heights before Thanksgiving.

The new home construction incentives are made possible with funds from the City, Associated Bank, and the Zilber Family Foundation. Some incentives are still available to prospective homeowners. For more info visit:
