Week of November 2 Meetings of Possible Interest to District 2

November 1, 2015 12:27 PM

The week of November 2 has items of possible interest to residents of district 2 at the Landmarks Commission, the Plan Commission, the City-County Homeless Issues Committee, the Common Council, the Urban Design Commission, the Community Development Block Grant Committee and a Neighborhood Meeting to Learn About Housing Initiatives. The city meeting agenda items are open for testimony from the public should you be interested in weighing in.  I also appreciate hearing from you on any items on which you have a particular interest or concern so please send me an email or give me a call.

Because there is a meeting related to the proposed homeless day resource center that is being considered the County this week I have also included information about that meeting. This week the Dane County – County Board will be meeting.  It will be considering authorizing the purchase of the Messner site for a day resource center.

Also, committees and commissions have an opportunity at the beginning of each agenda for Public Comment on items not on the agenda.  If you have something you want to share with a committee or commission, you can use the Public Comment time to do so.
