County Executive Abele’s Statement on Today’s Ruling Allowing Couture Construction
I appreciate Judge Foley's clear decision allowing the redevelopment of the underused Downtown Transit Center to move forward.
MILWAUKEE – I appreciate Judge Foley’s clear decision allowing the redevelopment of the underused Downtown Transit Center to move forward. The planned Couture development will create a vibrant public space that improves access to the lakefront, creates thousands of jobs and adds another signature building to Milwaukee.
If Preserve Our Parks wants to continue to appeal this ruling, I hope they will do in an expedited manner.
