    From press release: “I hear buzz in the community about ideas for this space—ideas that are not necessarily private development and might very well make O’Donnell Park a much better public recreation space—”

    Sup. Alexander: To make this park a much better public recreation space, could supervisors simply recommend that Milwaukee County’s park planners take a look at how to improve it? Several ideas have been suggested by Jeramey Janeene and others. That would not require a complicated RFP or declaring the park surplus properrty and removing it from the Parks Dept. In some cases it sounds like all it would take is a little pruning, some better plantings, and a modest amount of programming. I imagine the nonprofit art museum and Betty Brinn Museum might have a few ideas as well. They’re both already long-time trusted partners with the County.

    The amount of tax revenue that could be generated by this site if sold is so large that if you think they should leave it as is, is downright being selfish. There is nothing but grass all along the lakefront that can be enjoyed by Milwaukee citizens, can’t we use this land to better the community??

    This land is a slab of grass on a parking lot. You people make it sound like its the Grand Canyon
