Residential construction first began in the early 1970s. Over the past 40 years, Wellington has become a thriving community with diverse neighborhoods. In recent years, several neighborhoods have been experiencing social and economic challenges. These specific neighborhoods are identified as our "transitional" neighborhoods; consisting primarily of multi-family housing which was used by Wellington resident while the single-family neighborhoods were being constructed. Wellington through its Safe Neighborhoods and Sustainable Wellington initiatives is focusing on these neighborhoods to maintain property values, improve infrastructure, promote development, and address the social and economic challenges.
Wellington is committed to strategies that continue to make our neighborhoods a great place to call home! Stay tuned for updates on reinvestment strategies and opportunities or visit Neighborhood Services for current neighborhood activities.
