O’Donnell Park Could Be Sold or Leased to Milwaukee Art Museum


Milwaukee County Board officials announced on Tuesday that they will consider the proposal of selling or leasing the O’Donnell Park to Milwaukee Art Museum.

The resolution to sell or lease the Park along with the parking structure, was introduced on Tuesday. And it will be presented in front of the Parks, Energy and Environment Committee on Thursday, before the County Board meeting. The Board will go through the resolution on Thursday.

Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic said, “This will be a bold conversation on O’Donnell Park and the future of Milwaukee’s downtown lakefront. These talks will move us forward beyond the impasse on O’Donnell Park. Because the Milwaukee Art Museum is our community partner, we look forward to creating a public-to-public partnership. While the talks are exploratory, we want to engage in robust conversations about what O’Donnell Park will look like in the future.”

She, along with Supervisors Gerry Broderick and Patricia Jursik had proposed this resolution. Jursik said that this resolution will be good for the future of O’Donnell Park. She said that the Museum can give excellent solution for activating the public plaza.

Broderick thinks that the proposal will benefit both the Museum and the County. He said that the Museum was an asset having a world-class reputation. He said that these discussions can increase the opportunities in the region.
