Ozaukee County Board Chairman Rob Brooks, County Supervisors Kathy Geracie, Karl Hertz, Chip Slater, Sandy Wirth, and Bob Walerstein and other County officials joined Cedarburg Mayor Greg Myers, Alderman Paul Radtke, Milwaukee Curling Club President Mark Conrardy and other Milwaukee Curling Club Board members for a groundbreaking on the Ozaukee County Cedarburg Fairgroundís $3.8M Multi-purpose building Tuesday, February 28th. The facility is on schedule to be completed in time for the 2012 Curling season.

The Milwaukee Curling Club will be leasing the facility for half the year starting in October 2012 through March 2013 and continuing in that pattern. As a result of the unique partnership, Ozaukee County will generate revenue from the lease to the Curling Club as well as positive economic activity for the local businesses in Cedarburg and Ozaukee County. The Milwaukee Curling Club membership and activities will draw visitors and players from throughout the State and at times the Midwest.

Ozaukee County will have control of the facility from April 2013-September 2013 and continuing in that pattern for the Ozaukee County Fair, other civic endeavors such as Maxwell Street Days and various Fairgrounds rentals. As a multi-use facility, this will be a great place for trade shows, business meetings, party, banquet, gatherings, or receptions.

In planning for the future, the construction of the 28000 sq foot multi-use facility is a great way to further develop Ozaukee County and enhance the services that are offered. The erection of the Multi-purpose building and other substantial upgrades of the Fairgrounds will give the grounds a drastic facelift, improve the quality and appearance of the surrounding area and generate economic growth in the greater Cedarburg community, and is a substantial investment of County infrastructure and assets.
