Milwaukee County Board Of Supervisors Set Public Hearing On Proposal To Develop Park East Land

Invites Public to the Table

By - Jun 8th, 2015 03:52 pm

The Milwaukee County Board will hold a public hearing at the War Memorial Center in Memorial Hall at 750 N. Lincoln Memorial Drive at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, to listen to residents about proposed economic expansions in the Park East corridor. Parking will be free to the public who attend the hearing.

“Many of the conversations about these developments are happening in Madison, outside of the reach of most Milwaukee County residents,” said Supervisor Patricia Jursik, Chairwoman of the Economic and Community Development Committee.  “We invite the community to this hearing, which is being held at night outside of the Courthouse to maximize public participation.”

“These developments are among the most significant we have seen proposed in Milwaukee in recent years, and they have the opportunity to transform the downtown,” said Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic.  “We look forward to learning more about the proposals and projected job creation for Milwaukee County residents.”

The hearing will kick off with presentations on the proposal at 5:30 p.m., and start receiving testimony at 6:00 p.m. from the public.  Milwaukee County officials, including the County Executive and the Director of Administrative Services, as well as Milwaukee Bucks ownership representatives have been invited to present to the public on the proposals.

“Residents are encouraged to join the discussion about this project that involves significant public financing,” Dimitrijevic said.  “We look forward to hearing from you.”

The Committee of the Whole will first meet at the Courthouse at 3 p.m. to receive an update from the Administration to answer questions on the Bucks arena financing deal and the impact to the County taxpayer.  Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett gave a presentation to the Common Council on Friday on the impact to the City, and the County Executive similarly has been invited to appear before the public.
