A proposed new downtown arena will be one of the key topics discussed during a town hall meeting to be hosted on Tuesday, July 14 by Alderman Robert J. Bauman in the Milwaukee Public Library’s Centennial Hall, from 6 – 8 p.m. (attendees can enter the hall through doors located at 733 N. 8th St.).

Alderman Bauman said Mayor Tom Barrett is scheduled to participate in the meeting, and will deliver a presentation on the proposal to build a new arena (and proposed ancillary development) on the northern edge of downtown in the 4th Aldermanic District. Other matters likely to be discussed include licensing related to gentlemen’s clubs, and public safety issues.

“With the arena proposal likely coming before the Common Council soon for review, this meeting will provide a prime opportunity for residents to find out details and ask questions,” said Alderman Bauman, chair of the Common Council’s Public Works Committee.
