CHICAGO - Milwaukee convention center officials are working on a $167 million bond-financed plan to add 300,000 square feet to the facility in the city's downtown area.

The Milwaukee Exposition Convention Center and Arena's board of directors last Thursday gave preliminary approval for the expansion, which would provide the additional space over the next 10 years. The center currently has about 177,000 square feet of exhibit, meeting, and ballroom space.
