IMPORTANT: Neighbor meeting with Milwaukee County Officials

posted Jul 7, 2016, 9:47 AM by Cooper Park

Tuesday, July 26th at 6pm at the Cooper Park Pavilion


This meeting is in response to the many, many incidents that are occurring weekly at Cooper Park. Many neighbors have reported violence, trash, reckless driving, property damage and illegal drug use. We will be meeting with Milwaukee County and Milwaukee Parks officials to discuss how we are going to curb this behavior.

Alderman Bohl will also be on hand this evening to act as our liaison and help us in making change. Issues occurring in the park fall outside of his jurisdiction, but he has agreed to help us through this process.

A preliminary recommendation of suspending all picnic rentals has been proposed - this will be discussed more in depth at the meeting, however this has been done by Cooper Park in the past to curtail negative activity, and from my understanding, it has been successful in doing so.

Again, if you want to see change, you MUST MAKE THIS MEETING A PRIORITY. The county and Parks will NOT take us seriously if only 10-15 people show up.


If you would like, please share any concerning events that you've witnessed at Cooper Park during the past year. I will read these aloud at the meeting for further emphasis.

Thank you for your cooperation, and thank you for investing your time and energy into making our neighborhood great.
