Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council Honors Sue Black,

Nov. 19, 2009

The Milwaukee Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), the area’s leading home improvement and remodeling industry resource for more than 48 years, presented its annual “Building Milwaukee” Award to Sue Black, Director of the Milwaukee County Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture, at the association’s monthly membership meeting on Tues., Nov. 17.

 

The “Building Milwaukee” Award was created to recognize efforts made by individuals and groups who concentrate on community improvements and assist in the growth of the home remodeling industry.

 

“Sue Black has played an integral role in enhancing one of Milwaukee’s treasures – our wonderful parks system,” said Tom Weiher, CR, CKBR, president of Milwaukee/NARI. “Her vision for what the parks should be for residents and visitors has enabled Milwaukee County to be the envy of cities across the country. We are proud to recognize Sue’s efforts and her commitment to enhancing Milwaukee County, providing opportunities for citizens to recreate, relax, and learn.”

 

Ms. Black was recognized for overseeing more than 15,000 acres of the county gems known as “The Emerald Necklace” – bringing a quality of life to millions of visitors each year while preserving the legacy of the parks founders.

 

Under her leadership, the vast county park system has flourished, offering diverse, year-round activities. The park system, the setting for educational, cultural, and recreational programs, consists of 150 parks and parkways, nine outdoor pools, two indoor pools, three water parks, 200 athletic fields, 120 tennis courts, two band shells, the Wehr Nature Center, Mitchell Park Domes, Boerner Botanical Gardens, a 55,000-square-foot indoor Sports Complex, 15 golf courses, and 16 miles of lakefront property, which includes McKinley Marina, six beaches, two yacht clubs, and a sailing center.

The Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Council was chartered in July 1961, as a Chapter of the National Home Improvement Council. In May of 1982, the National Home Improvement Council merged with the National Remodelers Association to form NARI – the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.

 

The Council’s goals of encouraging ethical conduct, professionalism, and sound business practices in the remodeling industry have led to the remodeling industry’s growth and made NARI a recognized authority in that industry. With over 900 members, the Milwaukee Chapter is the nation’s largest.
