Recently, I joined Alder Phair, Superintendent Cheatham, neighborhood leaders, many volunteers and engaged neighbors at the brand new Theresa Terrace Neighborhood Center and the newly expanded Meadowridge Library and Meadowood Neighborhood Center for their open houses!

At Meadowridge, community members enjoyed cookies and punch and signed up for summer reading clubs, as they explored the library and community center, linked together through the addition of a community kitchen. As you can see from the photos, the facility is beautiful!

At the Theresa Terrace Neighborhood Center residents and visitors grilled out, painted faces, and enjoyed some outdoor activities.

These facilities are special because a big element of their design came from input of the very people who will utilize them, the residents. Aside from their recreational value, the library and community centers will serve to benefit residents who lack access to resources for education and health care.

Folks who attended both events were very appreciative of the time and effort that Alder Phair has invested in these projects. His work and dedication have paid off.

Thank you to neighborhood residents, Alder Phair, the Madison Public Library, the Madison School District, the Wisconsin Youth Center, Madison School and Community Recreation (MSCR), City of Madison staff and the project architects, whose dedicated efforts made these facilities possible!
