A joint public hearing of the Milwaukee County Board’s Parks, Energy and Environment Committee, and the Economic and Community Development Committee on the proposed sale of O’Donnell Park to Northwestern Mutual will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 10 at the Downtown Transit Center Harbor Lights Room, 909 E. Michigan Street.

“I hope people will get the facts before they develop opinions,” said Supervisor Patricia Jursik, chairwoman of the Economic and Community Development Committee. “This is a chance for the public to hear the offer from Northwestern Mutual and determine what they believe is the best for Milwaukee County.”

Supervisor Gerry Broderick, chairman of the Parks, Energy and Environment Committee, said he was eager to hear from Milwaukee County residents about the proposed sale.

“I’m looking for maximum public input,” Broderick said. “We want to know what our constituents think, not the special interest groups, on the potential sale of O’Donnell Park.”

The committees will hear a brief description of the proposal by Teig Whaley-Smith, Director of Economic Development and a report by Comptroller Scott Manske before taking public comment.

“This joint night hearing is designed to give residents the opportunity to express themselves on the future of O’Donnell Park, the lakefront and economic development in Milwaukee County,” said Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic.
