Anti-Racism Mural Unveiling, Good Neighbor Gathering, SW Path Closure, Cedar Street, Metro Network Redesign

September 22, 2021 4:45 PM

Hello Friends and Neighbors.

Anti-Racism Mural Unveiling

mural unveiling

I want to personally invite you to the Monroe Street Anti-Racism Project mural unveiling this Saturday, September 25, during the Monroe Street Festival

Local artist Simone Lawrence has been working hard on this project, and the Monroe Street Anti-Racism Project (MoSAP) is looking forward to officially presenting the mural to the neighborhood this weekend.

The project emerged in response to racist flyers that showed up in the neighborhood last summer. The community came together and decided to respond in a positive way by using public art to lean against hate and ignorance and to further challenge ourselves with the task of rooting out systemic racism. 

Love overcomes hate, and this project reveals the best in who we are in District 13. I encourage you to participate this Saturday.

Good Neighbor Gathering

gng
Also taking place this Saturday, you're invited to the second annual Good Neighbor Gathering, being held at Brittingham Park from Noon to 5pm.  

This is the second time we've done the GNG, the first being the inaugural event in 2019. (We skipped last year due to Covid.

Here's what to expect at this family-friendly, alcohol-free event:

  • Madison's Panchromatic Steel Drum band & DJ Andre
  • Inflatable slide
  • Monroe Street Art Center activities (including face-painting for the kiddos)
  • MSCR Fit2Go van
  • Madison West Poms team, Reggie the Regent, 
  • Bike parade, food carts, free beverages, and more!

To keep this event free and open to all, the District 13 Neighborhood Alliance is seeking donations from local businesses and residents--please visit their website to support it. Contact the Alliance at district13cares@gmail.com to learn more.

District 13 is made up of the Dudgeon-Monroe, Vilas, Greenbush, Bay Creek, Bayview, Triangle, and Monona Bay neighborhoods, and the D13 Alliance works to increase a sense of community and mutual support across all our neighborhoods.

Southwest Bike Path Closure Next Week

Sections of the Southwest Path will be closed for resurfacing over the following dates. Path detours will be marked during construction at each section.

(The signs for the detours are confusing. If you live on Gregory or lower Fox, the no-parking signs are to allow for a temporary bike detour while the path is being resurfaced. Your residential streets are not being resurfaced.)

Commonwealth Avenue to Glenway Street: 7:00 a.m. Monday, 9/27/21 thru 5:00 p.m. Friday, 10/1/21

Odana Road to Hammersley Road (South of the Beltline): 7:00 a.m. Monday, 10/4/21 thru 5:00 p.m. Friday, 10/8/21

Project details can be found here.

Metro Transit Network Redesign Project

Metro Transit is continuing a process to redesign Madison's bus network to better meet the needs of residents and businesses. The Metro Transit Network Redesign Project will design a route system that will better meet the needs of Madison area residents and businesses by increasing access and frequency, decreasing travel times, and improving the quality of transit riders' experience. It is looking at where buses go, how often they come, and what times service begins and ends. The results could have a big impact on where people can get to in a reasonable amount of time. That could increase ridership, but also improve access to opportunity for people across the region.

Input received from the first phase of the project was used to develop two contrasting network alternatives, the ridership alternative and coverage alternative. Both alternatives are realistic but neither alternative is a proposal. They are intended to show the extremes of what might be possible in Madison to illustrate the potential network designs resulting from different policy decisions.

Metro Transit is asking the community to provide feedback on each alternative and how you think competing design tradeoffs should be balanced in order to best serve our community. You do not need to be an active bus rider, or even a bus rider at all, to participate. Improving transit has benefits for the whole community - affecting traffic, development, the economy, the environment, and racial and social justice.

You are invited to attend a virtual public meeting on Thursday, September 23 at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the network alternatives. The Zoom meeting link is available here.

You can also provide your feedback and review the two network alternatives by completing a short ten minute online survey available here.

The feedback collected will help develop the draft Network Plan. For additional information on the Metro Transit Network Redesign project, including how you can stay updated, visit the project website.

Be safe, be well, be kind.
