Menomonee Falls Collective Impact
Starting in 2016, the School District of Menomonee Falls developed a partnership with the Village of Menomonee Falls Police Department to better support at-risk youth. In 2017 and 2018, Menomonee Falls Collective Impact grew its partnership with the broader community to maximize the resources of the community for the wellbeing of all Village of Menomonee Falls residents. The 2018 Community Wellness Data report has been compiled to inform the work of Menomonee Falls Collective Impact by providing a snapshot the existing conditions and recent trends in the community. This annual report includes local information across a variety of sectors with data comparisons to the State of Wisconsin and surrounding communities.
Chamber of Commerce.org named the Village of Menomonee Falls #8 on the 2019 list of Best Cities to Live in Wisconsin.
