O'Donnell Park

(WITI) — The Milwaukee Business Journal reports a key Milwaukee County committee voted Monday, October 27th to advance a revised agreement to sell the O’Donnell Park parking structure to Northwestern Mutual for $12.3 million.

The proposed sale has raised concerns from parks organizations who argue the land should remain publicly owned. The 4-2 vote was by the County Board’s Economic and Community Development Committee. A final vote on the proposal must still be made by the full County Board.
