Preservation at Risk

Each month, MPA will use this section to feature buildings and sites we consider to be “at-risk” of demolition - either imminent or in the future.

This may come as no surprise to any of you given the news of late, but the Domes are at serious risk of being demolished due to rising costs and continued deferred maintenance. MPA is doing everything in our power to ensure that doesn’t happen, and we even spoke at the most recent Committee on Parks and Culture meeting to reemphasize the importance of our Domes.

Read Our Statement

Join us each month around the Greater Milwaukee Area as we explore historic buildings, adaptive reuse projects, and highlight incredible small businesses - all in an informal social setting!


October's Metro Monthly information coming soon, keep an eye on your inbox!
