Franklin Common Council Action on Proposal for
Minor League Baseball Stadium and a Development of a
New Downtown Franklin

The special meeting of the City of Franklin Common Council was held on Tuesday, April 22nd, to consider the proposed Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Franklin and Zimmerman Ventures, LLC for a minor league baseball stadium and a development of a new downtown Franklin.  The Common Council unanimously approved the following motions:

III.A.  “Motion to deny the Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Franklin and Zimmerman Ventures, LLC, as presented due to multiple unknowns including the developer providing inadequate evidence of the potential for economic development, failing to adequately involve Milwaukee County and address the County and State of Wisconsin ownership and roles in the partnership, the inability to commit to additional development at the outset, and needing necessary approvals from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, which all create too much risk for the City."


III.B.  ”Motion to direct staff to work with the Forward Franklin Economic Development Commission and/or the Community Development Authority to evaluate the potential for economic development in the area of West Rawson Avenue/South 76th Street and West Loomis Road."
