Public Meeting - Proposed 2Park NID
Monday, August 27, 5:30 - 7:00pm
Downtown Milwaukee's Cathedral Square would get a new band shell, as well as restored grass, more seating, and restrooms to replace the park's dozen or so portable toilets.
Juneau Park, just four blocks to the east, would have its bluff made more stable, and its views of Lake Michigan improved, by removing invasive trees and plants.
