Milwaukee Journal Sentinal: Not yet on a separate parks district

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker is resurrecting his plan to create an independent parks district to save one of the community’s most treasured legacies. But in this editorial, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal argues against creating an independent park body, citing among its arguments the notorious problems and lack of accountability at the Minneapolis Park Board.

Interestingly, among the problems the Milwaukee County Parks are having is millions of dollars of deferred maintenance, just like the Minneapolis Park Board.
