Minutes note: Neil Levin - owner of the Four Seasons Skatepark Jeff Gostowiak - Four Seasons Skatepark Ald. Zielinski moves to make articles part of the record. There were no objections. Ald. Davis would like to see the contract come back before the committee. The sponsor has no objections. Ald. Davis would also like a floor plan prior to Monday's Council meeting. There is an error on the 2nd page - should be Milwaukee City, not Milwaukee County, for the reduced discount of 25%. Ald. Zielinski also moved that the final agreement come before this committee and only the committee would need to approve the agreement. Ken Little - Dept. of City Development - there is a formal application that needs to be completed.
