The Common Council today accepted a bequest from the estate of a former Department of Public Works (DPW) employee, paving the way for a portion of the money to be used to construct the Art Stop bus shelter at the triangle where S. Kinnickinnic Ave., E. Lincoln Ave. and S. Howell Ave. meet in Bay View.

Alderman Tony Zielinski, who has worked with DPW to secure the bequest from the estate of the late David Dombrowski, a former 14th District resident and 36-year DPW employee (1996-2002), said the Art Stop project will help transform the bustling business area where it will be located. “This public art bus shelter, made possible by the generosity of Mr. Dombrowski, will help strengthen the identity of the triangle area as a destination and will help draw in additional visitors and business patrons,” he said. “In my opinion, when it is built it will be among the very best public art bus shelters in the Midwest.”

Business Improvement District #44 will be responsible for maintaining the shelter after it is built, and no taxpayer dollars will be used in its maintenance and upkeep, Alderman Zielinski said.

A plaque honoring Mr. Dombrowski for his generosity will be placed at the Art Stop location by BID #44.
