Milwaukee – Today, State Representative Josh Zepnick (D-Milwaukee) spoke at the grand re-opening of the Milwaukee Domes. Following the event, Zepnick had this to say:

“The Milwaukee Domes are a civic gem built by a local architect that consistently ranks as one of the top 15 attractions in the city. They attracted over 240,000 visitors last year and provide an entertaining and educational experience. Having them officially re-opened is a big win for the South Side community and the greater Milwaukee area as a whole.

“I live in the Domes neighborhood and it is an honor to have this historic landmark in my district. I have a number of ideas on how to effectively remodel and reinvigorate the Domes for long-term success that I will be sharing with stakeholders and task force members in the coming months. The ideal solution for what to do with the Domes is something that will need to be community driven and will also take input from municipal leaders at the County and City levels as well as elected officials at the state level.

“I’d like to personally thank Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele for his leadership and commitment to re-opening the 3 domes as well as Northwestern Mutual for being a great community partner and financially supporting this re-opening event.”

A Milwaukee County task force is currently meeting to determine the future of the Domes. This future could include a full restoration of their current structures or replacing the Domes with a new modern facility with expanded space and services.

The grand re-opening event held today was a daylong celebration that included live Christmas music and a holiday floral show. Portions of the music were provided by students from Bruce-Guadalupe Community School which boasts a nationally recognized music program.
