Blink Grant Art
 
Artist Receives Blink Grant for Painting on E. Washington
 
The Madison Arts Commission has awarded a Blink Grant to Keysha Monique Mabra who will be painting a mural on a billboard outside of 1444 E. Washington, formerly the location of Art-In and currently housing Maria's and the Parched Eagle. Keysha lives not far from the site. From her conceptual statement for the piece, some of which is in the image above:
 
"My conceptual approach comes from a deep desire to give the city of Madison a permanent inspiration of hope through visual stimulation that encourages a positive insight into change for the better in the days to come following the recent chaos resulting from the Covid-19 epidemic, as well as local rioting as a result of sentiments reflecting recent police brutality and racial disunity."
 
Keysha is already starting the project and has hopes of obtaining funding for an expansion onto the west wall of 1444 E. Washington, so stop by and wish her well if you see her out there creating art!

Dane County Regional Airport Creates PFAS Informational Web Page

Citizens Can Submit Their Questions about PFAS at the Airport
The Dane County Regional Airport (DCRA) has developed an informational web page regarding PFAS at the airport. The web page contains a presentation about steps being taken by the airport, a question submission form, and additional resources.
 

Current public health safety guidelines do not allow for an in-person public information meeting, so DCRA created the web page to provide information and updates to the public on PFAS at the airport. The question submission form, which will be turned into an extensive FAQ section, will be open to the public through Sept. 2.

Flooding Pic

Recording of Yahara Watershed Study Public Information Meeting Available
 
A virtual Public Meeting was held on August 26 to discuss the ongoing East Isthmus and Yahara River Watershed Study. The presentation from this meeting was recorded and posted on the project website.
 
The watershed study will identify causes of existing flooding and then look at potential solutions to try to reduce flooding. The study will use computer models to assist with the evaluations. For more information please see the Flash Flooding Story Map.
 
Census 2020
 
2020 Census – 30,000 Madison households still need to respond
 
As of July 31, an estimated 30,000 Madison households still needed to respond to the 2020 Census according to the Census Bureau. The city's 2020 self-response rate (72.4%) was lagging the final 2010 self-response rate (77.2%) by 4.8 percentage points. In addition to tracking citywide response figures, Madison is tracking response rates within individual Census tracts by the percentage PDF  and estimated number PDF  of households that have yet to respond. Response rates are lagging in Census tracts around UW-Madison along with portions of Madison's northeast, south, and west sides.
 
The City of Madison's Complete Count Committee is asking households that have not yet responded to take 10 minutes to complete the Census at my2020census.gov, by phone, or by mail . Census Bureau employees have started visiting households that have not responded.

Finally, the Census Bureau has moved the deadline for responding – either via self-response or nonresponse followup – from October 31 to September 30. City staff has concerns that this will decrease responses from traditionally undercounted people, such as populations of color, renters, and immigrants. A complete count is critical for equal representation in elections and to receive our fair share of federal funding for the next 10 years for transportation, healthcare, COVID recovery, affordable housing, and more. 

Draft 2021-2025 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Available

From the Madison Area Transportation Planning Board (MPO)
The Draft 2021-2025 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the Madison Metropolitan Area & Dane County is now available for review and comment. The TIP lists major transportation improvements and studies anticipated to be undertaken during the next five-year period. 

The draft document has been posted on the TIP page of the MPO's website at this link.  A summary listing and maps of the major programmed projects along with a table with the approved Surface Transportation Block Grant Program priority project listings has also been posted at this link.

If you have comments or concerns regarding the federally funded projects or any of the other listed projects, the Madison Area Transportation Planning Board (MATPB) will accept all input. Please email comments to MATPB staff at mpo@cityofmadison.com. by Sept. 18.

A Sept. 2 Public Hearing on the TIP also provides an opportunity to provide oral comments to the board:

Annual Madison Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale Returns on Oct. 10
 
After a one-year hiatus, the annual Madison compost and rain barrel sale is back at a new location. This year's sale will be held at the Garver Feed Mill on Saturday, Oct. 10th. The new location provides easy, contactless pick-up and experts will be on hand to answer questions.

When it comes to easy, cost-effective ways to lessen your impact on the planet, rain barrels and compost bins provide an eco one-two for your home!  Harvesting rainwater for your plants saves money and reduces stormwater run-off into local waterways.

It is estimated that our urban communities contribute about 30% of the total phosphorus that enter in lakes Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, Kegonsa, and Wingra from runoff. And rather than sending more stuff to the landfill, compost bins will help you create nutrient rich soil by turning yard waste and food scraps into organic fuel for the garden.

Compost bins and 50 and 100 gallon rain barrels with diverters are available at discounted prices. Pre-orders before Oct 2nd receive an additional $10 off. Supplies are limited and due to Covid restrictions, pre-ordering is strongly recommended. For more information visit this site.

The cumulative maximum from that Fund would be $60,000 and would need to be matched by non-city funds.
