I’m stealing everything on this blog post from Ed Kuharski’s facebook update – thanks for the updates ED!!!! But I also included another meeting tonight that wasn’t listed on Monday . . . so if you missed the presentation, you can hear Catholic Charities spin on it tonight.

What Will Madison Look Like in 10 years, and Beyond?

Posted November 30th, 2016 @ 7:34 AM by

Have an opinion? Now is the time to get involved in a little thing called “comprehensive planning” to government geeks, and “Imagine Madison” as it has been branded for this iteration of the planning process.

Tonight: Battle of the Neighborhood Meetings

Posted November 30th, 2016 @ 7:23 AM by

Both meetings have impacts for people way beyond the neighborhood, both at 7pm tonight. Who planned this? Oh, traffic engineers. Homeless Day Resource Center Conditional Use Permit meeting? Or John Nolen Drive Corridor Study Neighborhood Meeting? I live about 5 blocks away from both of them . . .

Waiting for MPD . . .

Posted November 28th, 2016 @ 7:44 AM by

On July 18th I asked Chief Koval if I could assume that they would be looking into disciplinary action for Scott McConnell and Dean Baldukas for their comments calling progressives “assbags”, “gloryholing nincompoops” and telling people to go fuck themselves in an on-line petition presented to the Common Council. They said I’d get an answer in 90 days . . . and now policies have disappeared and have been changed. Hmmm . . . and I’m still waiting.

About that City Council Budget

Posted November 21st, 2016 @ 8:16 AM by

So, after spending the equivalent of two work days blogging the City Council budget deliberations and 5 long blog posts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), I didn’t have time to say what I thought of the budget process . . . and then it seemed it was too late, but I’m still thinking about it, so I’m blogging it now.
