EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS

In an initiative designed to bring the diversity of the neighborhood into the park and bring the community together, COA Youth and Family Centers created the free, family-friendly Skyline Music series. The park and the concerts offered a clean and safe place for neighbors to gather on summer evenings to enjoy music, picnics, views of the Milwaukee skyline, and each other’s company. The result was a vibrant urban green space in an area that was once litter strewn and crime-ridden. COA Youth & Family Centers added a sports field, established a summer day camp, created a large community garden space, and added community programming.

"COA Youth & Family Centers was pleased to work with VJS on the construction of the Selig-Joseph-Folz Theater in Kadish Park. While Craig Jorgensen was an active member of COA's Board of Directors, VJS won the project through a competitive process. This was a technically difficult project and VJS worked closely with COA throughout the process to make sure that this project was completed on time, on budget, and to our full satisfaction; and ultimately the theater won two major design/construction awards. I highly recommend their work."
