Wisconsin Governor Scott McCallum visited the Green Bay Packers' team headquarters this morning to present the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District Board with a check for infrastructure improvements included with the Lambeau Field Redevelopment Project. Gov. McCallum made the presentation of $9.1 million to Packers' President Bob Harlan and Stadium District Board Treasurer Ted Pamperin.
"The Green Bay Packers are as much a treasure and a heritage in the state of Wisconsin as anything we have," the Governor said. "I am very proud today to say in tight times in the budget that we're going to continue to move ahead to build Wisconsin, to look forward and to take care of the treasures that we have in this state."
The money will be used to refurbish the parking areas in Lambeau Field in conjunction with the redevelopment project. This includes refurbishing work on the parking lot and its bordering streets as well as utility, sewer and water systems.
"Since we announced this stadium development in January of 2000 we had a lot of important pieces to put together and this is certainly one of the most important items we've got," Harlan said. "We're very thankful to the state for the support it has given us."
