Neighborhood of the Year

The 2019 “Shorewood Neighborhood of the Year” award goes to the Eastwood Neighborhood. 

While not a typical neighborhood, these residences on Oakland and Shorewood Blvd. exemplify the spirit of neighborliness, from having Welcome Ambassadors for new residents to hosting summer picnics and holiday parties, along with caring for neighbors in times of need. 

Eastwood residents make a point of connecting with each other and developing regular lines of communication. Eastwood is a testament to the many ways that people can form a neighborhood.
