Bucks, city of Milwaukee narrow down potential new arena sites
(MILWAUKEE) - After meeting Friday morning with Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, city leaders say they've narrowed down where the team's proposed new arena will go.
The lakefront near the Summerfest grounds is out. Fourth District Alderman Bob Bauman that idea was shot down by Edens. \"He told me point-blank that he's explored the Third Ward, walked around the Third Ward, looked at (the) Summerfest location generally-- and that they're not interested in that,\" Bauman said.
The Menomonee Valley? Near Miller Park? Also out, according to Mayor Tom Barrett. \"Not sites that we're actively looking at.\"
