Success! Funding for Domes Planning Included in 2020 Budget

November 25, 2019 by Jennifer Sandy

Thanks to the hard work of Domes supporters, the Milwaukee County Budget for 2020 includes $108,000 for the continued development of a long-term plan to repair and preserve the Domes and revitalize Mitchell Park.

As Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors Chairman Theodore Lipscomb said, “The Domes are a beloved cultural institution that we have made a commitment to repair and preserve. It is important that we continue to make real progress at the Domes in 2020.”

While this news represents tremendous progress and will keep up the momentum for saving the Domes, we aren’t out of the woods yet. We’ll continue to keep you updated and ask for your support as planning continues in 2020. If you haven’t already, please sign our petition calling for a preservation solution for the Domes, and share it with your friends.

Applications for the Telling the Full History Preservation Fund grant program are due December 15, 2021.
