Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Monday, Todd Gawronski from G1, Inc. announced that it will end a five year lease with the Milwaukee County Parks once it is approved by the County. Gawronski stated, "With regards to the role of G1 at Bradford Beach, we have submitted a lease termination agreement to Milwaukee County Parks. Once agreed upon, the termination would be effective immediately.
G1 has been involved with the resurrection of Bradford Beach for the past 15 years. This included many of the familiar programs including sports leagues, special events and daily services. A majority of which were not previously available or had not been for an extended period of time...The goals that were set - all of which were met - changed the perception of Bradford Beach on a local, regional and national level. We did this by providing lifestyle activity in the most safe, clean and responsible manner possible."
In 2010, G1 was awarded a contract/lease to invest $100K in renovating Bradford Beach. Gawronski didn't provide why G1 has decided to pull out from 15 years of investment at Bradford Beach. G1 added beach kiosks and an outdoor beach hut bar.
Major volleyball tournaments, the annual Bradford Beach Music Jam and sports festival were held at the lakefront and beachgoers could enjoy the Milwaukee Air and Water Show at Bradford Beach. The AVP Tour was held last July at Bradford Beach.
