Viewpoint Luncheon: Milwaukee County’s Future at the County Grounds
Purchased by Milwaukee County in 1852 and exclusively occupied for a century by County institutions, the Milwaukee County Grounds in Wauwatosa now house one of the state’s foremost clusters of private health care institutions and businesses. Meanwhile, the County’s Mental Health Complex will soon shrink to fewer than 80 beds and its overall presence on the Grounds is vastly diminished.
Should Milwaukee County continue to own and occupy space on the County Grounds, or is it time for a new ownership structure? Who should provide water and stormwater services, and who should pay for fire and police? What are the prospects for a cooperative discussion between Wauwatosa, the County, and private sector leaders to resolve these issues?
Join the Public Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore Milwaukee County’s future at the County Grounds.
Our panel of government and private sector leaders includes:
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele
Wauwatosa Mayor Kathy Ehley
Guy Mascari, Director of Development, Milw. Co. Research Park
Dr. John Raymond, President and CEO, Medical College of WI
Moderated by Rob Henken, President, Public Policy Forum
