1987 – Ballpark Committee Formed

On this date the Greater Milwaukee Committee created a task force to study whether to renovate County Stadium or build a new ballpark. In April of the following year, the Task Force recommended the construction of a new stadium with a target completion date of 1992. The Task Force also narrowed the list of prospective sites to four locations: the Menomonee Valley, Milwaukee County grounds, Oak Creek and downtown near the Summerfest grounds.
