The Wisconsin Center District (WCD) is a government body created under Wisconsin State Statute in 1994 to fund, build and operate the Midwest Express Center (now Wisconsin Center) in downtown Milwaukee, and continue operating the existing venues now called the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena and Miller High Life Theatre.
In 2015, under a new State Statute, the Wisconsin Center District was authorized to own and issue bonds for a new basketball arena for the Milwaukee Bucks. Today WCD owns the Fiserv Forum, but the facility is operated, maintained and managed by the Bucks organization.
Not a unit of state, county or city government, WCD is instead a semi-autonomous municipality called a “district,” meaning its leaders are appointed by elected officials, and it can issue bonds and collect taxes within strict limits established by statute.
