Harbor District, Inc. and Rockwell Automation recently announced that Harbor View Plaza has been selected as the name for the Harbor District's first waterfront park.
“Harbor View Plaza is a step forward in a balanced approach to connect Milwaukee residents to the port area,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. “Historically, land around the port was exclusively industrial, but the future will include additional access, like Harbor View Plaza, for recreation.”
To date, Harbor District, Inc, has raised almost $1.2 million dollars towards the $1.5 million needed to complete construction of the plaza. A public fundraising campaign was recently launched with a number of private donations already being made.
