Packers/N. Sherman Development Meeting Moves Online

March 23, 2020 11:24 AM

Many of you received postcards in the mail inviting you to a neighborhood meeting with developer Marty Rifken to discuss his proposed project between Packers and N. Sherman south of Whitetail Ridge and north of Tennyson. Mr. Rifken proposes to develop a subdivision plat that includes a mix of single-family homes, multi-family buildings, offices, and other uses in the undeveloped 61-acre property that was recently attached to the City of Madison. The meeting was to be held this Wednesday, March 25 at 6:30pm at Lakeview School.

Alder Abbas and I have heard from many residents that they are interested in attending this meeting, so instead of cancelling we will be moving it online to the Zoom platform. It will be held at the same time - this Wednesday at 6:30. 

If you don't already have Zoom on your computer or phone you will be prompted to download the free app when you click on the link below to join the meeting. It would be best if you joined by computer since Mr. Rifken will be showing plat drawings on screen, but you can also join by telephone by calling the phone number below and entering in the meeting ID number. If you are not familiar with this platform I suggest you try logging in or calling in a few minutes before 6:30 to make sure you're able to participate from the beginning.

If you know of neighbors who are interested in learning more about this project and giving input but might not be subscribed to this blog, please contact them to make sure they are aware of this change in venue.

We are making the path as we walk it these days, trying new things to keep city government open and responsive. Holding this (or any) meeting online is not ideal, but it's what we must do to protect each other while ensuring that information is shared and questions get addressed. The Zoom platform has the capability of recording, so we can also distribute the video afterwards for those who aren't able to make it live.
