Milwaukie Stadium: Your chance to have the City Council Listen To Your Hopes & Concerns

Milwaukie City Council is holding three listening posts throughout the community to give residents several opportunities to speak directly with the Council about its goal of bringing professional baseball to Milwaukie and back to the Portland-metro region.

The three listening posts will be held:

Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011, Ardenwald Elementary School Cafeteria, 6 - 7p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011, Milwaukie Elementary School Cafeteria, 6 - 7p.m.
Thursday, Nov. 17, 2011,Linwood Elementary School Cafeteria, 6 - 7p.m.

From the Cities Website: “City Council believes that pro baseball is going to come back to the area and we think by bringing it to Milwaukie, we would be bringing family-friendly entertainment to town that would be a tremendous boost to our local economy,” said Mayor Jeremy Ferguson. "But as I and the rest of the Council have promised, we will only go forward after we've heard from our residents and if it's possible for the project to fit the needs of Milwaukie. These listening posts will give our residents a chance to talk to us directly about their hopes and concerns about bringing professional baseball to town."
