Grandview Town Center First Public Meeting Upcoming

July 9, 2015 10:49 AM

Hello Neighbors,

I emailed you about this last week but in the hubbub of the holiday weekend it may have been missed so I want to send a follow up and reminder.

A development company has stepped forward to develop Grandview Commons Town Center, the space between Great Dane East and Metro Market. There is a public meeting to discuss the proposed development next Friday evening, July 17th, at 6pm. Please mark your calendars and join us, as neighborhood input is crucial to the success of this development. This will not be the only meeting regarding this development of course, but as the process moves along it gets harder to change and update details of the project. It is essential that I hear from you as early in the process as possible so that we can all make this a project which works for us and for the east side. We are finalizing the location of the meeting so please stay tuned but in the meantime please plan to join us next Friday evening (7/17) at 6pm. Please tell your neighbors who may not be subscribed to this blog so that between mail and email we can reach and remind as many folks as possible.


Additionally, I have some updated pedestrian traffic news for Cottage Grove Road construction:

  • The sidewalk on the north side of Cottage Grove Road is closed.
  • The Capital City Trail is still detoured, same posted route as the previous stage.
  • Eastbound:  Pedestrians and bicycles can use the sidewalk on the south side of Cottage Grove Road.
  • Westbound:  Pedestrians can use the sidewalk on the south side of Cottage Grove Road.  Bicycles can use the bike lane adjacent to the WB traffic lane.

Please stay safe out there during construction

Finally, if you want to get out and enjoy this beautiful this evening, please consider coming out to Concerts on the Rooftop. Tonight atop the Monona Terrace is the high energy country stylings of the band Madison County, an award winning and popular local group. Concert is 7pm-9pm, bar opens at 6pm. Family friendly event, hope to see you there!

Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
