Tim Sheehy, President of the MMAC, discussed his group's work to help keep Milwaukee a big league city, including the need to address the future of the BMO HARRIS Bradley Center and the metro area's other cultural attractions. Last year, the MMAC spearheaded the Champions of the Community, an $18 million effort to provide a bridge to a new Downtown multipurpose entertainment facility, and now the MMAC has just formed a community task force to look at the issue of keeping Milwaukee as a top tier community and how a new facility fits into that vision. Tim updated Rotary on this important community effort.
