Important: New Procedures for Calling for Police Service (September 2015)

This document, prepared by MPD District 1 Captain Thiele, outlines the new procedures that residents are to follow for calling for police service.  This guidance replaces the Report It, Record It policy.  Please note that when calling the non-emergency number to request service, you may request a citation be issued and District 1 officers will follow up on that request the same as with Report It, Record It.

MHNA encourages residents to utilize and support this new system, have patience as we all transition into the new system, and keep both Captain Thiele and MHNA (issues@murrayhillna.org) updated on your experiences with the new procedures.

VIDEO: NWQ Hearing at ZND Committee (May 15, 2012)

This video shows the hearing of the Zoning and Neighborhood Development (ZND) Committee of the Common Council on the rezoning of the Columbia St. Mary’s complex (“Northwest Quadrant”) to accommodate UWM needs.

Opposition to NWQ Rezoning Request (June 2011)

MHNA submitted this formal letter of opposition to UWM’s rezoning request on the basis that unchecked growth of the UWM campus and population over the past decade has played a major role in degrading the quality of life for adjacent residential neighborhoods.  MHNA believes UWM needs to better collaborate with stakeholders in the adjacent neighborhoods to mitigate the negative impacts to the community.
