“The Jackson Park neighborhood is a community of quiet streets and well-kept homes wrapped around the largest park on the city’s South Side. The setting is peaceful, almost pastoral in places, but the Jackson Park area offers more than quiet. Its character is an appealing blend of old and new. Placed squarely between the old South Side and the southwest suburbs, it shares the atmospheres of both. And its homes, bridging a gap between pre- and post-World War II development, make Jackson Park one of the most diverse architectural districts in Milwaukee.”~ Author Unknown

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT:
The Jackson Park Community Association would like to thank Mr. Ken Franzen for his years of dedication as President of the JPCA. Mr. Franzen worked long and hard on getting the association its 501(c)3 status and helping the association get recognized by other associations and non-profits throughout Milwaukee.
It is my privilege to introduce myself, Dee Chastain as the new JPCA President. I have been the VP of the association for 6 years and an active member in the community for 30 years. I plan on taking this position and working hard alongside my great board of directors in partnering with local businesses to become a safe and diversified area.
I am happy to announce that the JPCA has partnered with Zablocki Library. We met with the branch manager, David Sikora, and we are excited to announce we have some awesome projects in store for the community. Please read further in the newsletter to see what these are.
I look forward to working with you and businesses to achieve our goals. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (414)937-0220 or drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
