Reallocated Community Block Grant Funds will benefit Sheridan Park Pavilion and the City of Cudahy.

March 11, 2014

Reallocated Community Block Grant Funds will benefit Sheridan Park Pavilion and the City of Cudahy.

On the afternoon of March 3rd, I was very pleased to learn that the Milwaukee County Economic and Community Development Committee is recommending to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisor redirecting Community Development Block Grant money to complete the renovations to the Sheridan Park Pavilion. This issue now goes before the Milwaukee County Board at a later date.

Last September, I testified in favor of an application put forth by Milwaukee County Parks for renovations to the Sheridan Park Pavilion. The structure, built in 1959, has not seen any significant funding or improvements since it was built. This facility is utilized by 5,000 to 8,000 residents and guests during our cities Fourth of July Celebration, utilized by countless others at other private and public functions held in the park, needs a drastic facelift since Sheridan Park turns 100 years old this year. At that time, the Board approved roughly $66,000 for this renovation to begin.

I would once again like to thank Chair Supervisor Pat Jursik and the members of the committee for their support and investment here in our community. I also appreciate the support Supervisor Jursik has provided on behalf of our residents supporting the items which I feel are valuable to our community. While we were happy to see an initial investment with the first allotments of CDBG funds last year, this reallocation will benefit all users of Sheridan Park and provided for the full much needed renovations to the Pavilion.
