Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic today thanked the County Executive for allowing discussions to begin between the County and the Milwaukee Art Museum on the public-public partnership for O’Donnell Park. The resolution, which passed the Board last month, was returned unsigned and now goes into effect.

“We have an opportunity to write an exciting new chapter in the history of Milwaukee’s lakefront. I look forward to the results of these discussions as we move toward a new vision for the Milwaukee Art Museum and O’Donnell Park,” Dimitrijevic said.

“This will be a bold and necessary conversation on the lakefront’s future, and these talks will move us forward beyond the impasse on O’Donnell Park. Because the Milwaukee Art Museum is our community partner, we look forward to creating a public-to-public partnership. While the talks are exploratory, we want to engage in robust conversations about what O’Donnell Park will look like in the future.”
