JUDGE DOYLE SQUARE - Developer Recommended

The Board of Estimates last nite voted to recommend to the Common Council that Beitler Real Estate  Services  of Chicago develop the massive Judge Doyle Square (JDS). The JDS project will be located on a two-block area in downtown Madison encompassing Block 88, behind the Madison Municipal Building and across South  Pickney Street in Block 105, the current site of the City's Government East parking garage. Vermilion Enterprises, LLC also of Chicago submitted a strong proposal to develop the JDS project. By unanimous voice vote members of the Board of Estimates voted to recommend that the City Negotiating team enter into exclusive negotiations  with Beitler. The two proposals differed in costs, design, size, scope of hotel supporting Monona Terrace, apartments, bike center, commercial space, parking and amount of public investment. Your input is very important as the decision on  public investment dollars is determined.

The City of Madison's Community Development Division (CDD) has a long-standing commitment to addressing community development challenges through a competitive funding process. In 2013, the Mayor and Common Council appropriated funds to analyze these processes and make recommendations to help improve them. A major goal of this initiative was to find ways to make sure that public dollars are used effectively to achieve the City's stated goals and that this happen with the benefit of input from residents and stakeholders. 
The Community Development Division will be hosting a series of public meetings at which officials from FCI will make formal presentations of their report.  

Tuesday, April 12: at 5:00 pm at Badger Rock Neighborhood Center, 501 E. Badger Rd.
The Community Development Block Grant Committee, the Community Services Committee, the Committee on Aging and the Early Childhood Care and Education Committee will all be discussing the report at their scheduled meetings in April and early May. The Common Council is scheduled to accept this report at their meeting on May 17, 2016. 


The City of Madison Mayor's Neighborhood Conference is scheduled for Saturday, October 8th at Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center.  Please let us know what is important to your neighborhood by completing the questionnaire.  The questionnaire will be distributed to Madison residents through neighborhood groups and associations, planning councils, community centers, nonprofits, business associations, and past participants over the next week. Please circulate widely.  Thank you in advance.
Tidbit:  The first neighborhood conference was held twenty years ago.  Approximately 320 persons attended the October 26, 1996 conference held at Downtown MATC and the Concourse Hotel.
