The "Domes" renovation is very beautiful and a long time coming. We here in the "Clarke Square" neighborhood of Milwaukee, where they are located (you might want to list OUR neighborhood in your neighborhoods listings, please?), are very proud and pleased to have them looking good... Thanks to all who helped.
