Ronald McDonald house given OK to expand
As reported in an article in yesterday's Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee County Board's Committee on Economic and Community Development unanimously approved the sale of 3.5 acres of County Ground land to Ronald McDonald House for their planned expansion.
This is considerably less than the 11 acres Ronald McDonald House originally sought.
The more important question of the disposition of the rest of the 30 acre parcel surrounding Ronald McDonald House, which includes some of the most beautiful natural features on the County Grounds, is not addressed in the article. That parcel is still zoned for economic development. My earlier post provides details of the issues involved and a proposal for adding the land to the County Grounds Park for the benefit of all.
