Alder Rummel’s Updates
D6 Items of Interest Week of May 1, 2017
Highlights: On Monday, Imagine Madison Phase 2- the City seeks your input as we update our 10 year old Comprehensive Plan. On Tuesday, the Common Council will discuss the recent upsurge in gun shot incidents and armed robberies by convening a Committee of the Whole. The issue is how do we leverage our existing resources, both in the police department and with our contracted service providers, to effectively disrupt gun violence? Gun violence is considered by most experts to be a public health epidemic, not just a law enforcement issue. We need to find ways to help young people resolve disputes without guns and show them their lives matter to us. The other major item on Tuesday's Council agenda is the resolution to reimburse Chief Koval for his legal fees after the Police and Fire Commission dismissed the charges against him. I am holding two neighborhood meetings this week. The first is a proposal to add a restaurant and brewery at the former home of RPs Pasta on E Wilson (Wednesday) and the second is to get input on a proposal to demolish 801 Willy and construct a 3-story mixed use building (Thursday). The latest plans for the Public Market will be discussed on Thursday with the architects the city hired.
