eNews from Mayor Paul R. Soglin November 2014
Our community's future depends on all of our children having equitable access to quality arts education that teaches critical skills such as innovation, creativity, and problem solving. Given the number of significant challenges our city and schools continue to face, this task is more difficult and important than ever.
Thanks to the Kennedy Center and the incredible working relationships that have developed under the Any Given Child initiative, we are now moving forward with several key recommendations to increase our capacity to ensure that every child has the opportunity to engage and participate in the arts.
Learn more about the Any Given Child project.
City News & Updates
I am excited to commit to the President's My Brother's Keeper initiative because it is an opportunity to assess our needs, improve the coordination of services and programs, and provide more opportunities for our boys and young men of color to succeed.
The MBK Community Action Summit will be held on November 18, from 1:00-4:00 pm at United Way of Dane County, 2059 Atwood Avenue.
The Madison Common Council adopted a resolution earlier this month directing the Madison Food Policy Council to lead a taskforce, comprised of mainly city staff, to research the problem of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), which directly affects honey bees and other pollinators. The taskforce will provide recommendations to departments and the Common Council on local solutions to protect pollinators.
Located at the top of State Street, the intersection of the Capitol Square and State Street is an important crossroads for the city. Mayor Soglin has directed City staff to begin an effort to rethink the existing design and consider different approaches and ideas for the space, including the area known as the Philosophers’ Grove.
This workshop will provide an opportunity for interested businesses, residents, property owners, and downtown visitors to share their concerns, design ideas, and help the city move forward on a plan of action. By Spring of 2015, the City will have a plan for a more attractive and active space that can be comfortable destination for all people.
Thursday, November 20, 2014, 5:30-7:30pm, Central Library.
