Alder Foster’s Updates

Mural, Library Pickup, COVID Testing - D15 Update 5/11/20

May 11, 2020 12:40 PM


Last Week 

  • Common Council: The Common Council upheld the decision of the Alcohol License Review Committee and denied the change of license premise request by Visions. This means that the private booths that were constructed without building permits and without ALRC permission will need to be removed. At Tuesday's meeting, I also introduced a new resolution entitled: Providing a COVID-19 Response for People Experiencing Unsheltered Homelessness by Allowing Temporary Use of Specified City Lands, Terminable at Any Time by the City, In Order to Support Safe Outdoor Space Practices. This resolution is needed in order to prevent the spread of COVID associated with encampments on city property. I will share more details next week before the item is considered at the May 19th Common Council meeting.

  • Shots Fired on Camden: As I posted here, there were shots fired resulting in three injuries on Camden Road on Friday night. The investigation is under way and anyone with information should contact Madison Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.

  • New DAMA Mural: Dane Arts Mural Arts unveiled their newest mural last week, this one honoring and celebrating essential workers. You can see the mural painted on their garage doors at 5004 Allis Avenue and you can watch a video about the mural here.
