MDC Proposed Development Committee

By David Taylor

As many of you are aware the Madison Development Corporation (MDC) which owns the Avenue/Graaskamp development bordered by East Mifflin, 2nd Street, and East Washington is pursuing a redevelopment of that property. The current proposed site plan is posted below and in pdf form here. [Draft minutes of the June EENA monthly meeting in which this new plan was presented is available here].

Following up on an initial May 24th meeting, we would like to hold a second meeting to form a regular standing EENA committee whose mission will be to review MDCs ongoing planning, assess the impact of the project on our neighborhood and represent the interests of the Emerson East Neighborhood to MDC and the City of Madison.

That second meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 11th at 6:30 p.m. at the Hawthorne Library large meeting room. All Emerson East residents are welcome to attend, and the meeting’s agenda is here

If anyone has questions concerning the Avenue/Graaskamp development prior to our July 11th meeting, please e-mail Dave (davidtaylor@wisc.edu) or Pam (pamscooterd@yahoo.com).
