Area boundaries are mapped and described in terms of their streets on the City's Neighborhood Resource Teams website.
The South area is a well-established residential area bisected by dynamic commercial areas bordering Park Street and the Beltline and includes much of the area between Seminole Highway and the Yahara River. This larger area includes some smaller areas undergoing transition, and some areas that have typically generated a high number of police calls.
The CDBG program has traditionally targeted a broad range of its site-specific activities to this area, including housing, business development and support for civic focal points, like centers and gardens. Some of the major activities have included the construction of the Boys and Girls Club, the extensive rehab and homeownership programs in Bramís Addition, the efforts to promote business development through support of Madison Development Corporation, a South Madison Community Development Corporation, the original renovation and annexation of the Villager Mall, and Genesis, and two specific neighborhood planning processes.
The major 2002 activities in this area will reflect this broad interest and commitment. The program will support a concentration neighborhood planning process in the greater South Madison and Bay Creek area, with a commitment to support the higher priority projects in the two years following the adoption of the plan. The program will also continue its support of core operations at the Boys and Girls Club, and permit the carry-over of funds for Genesis to complete acquisition on a building to develop a small business incubator for businesses to generate jobs in the area.
The South area is also served by our community-wide core/basic activities, which are available to residents in all areas of the City of Madison.
