Alder Conklin’s Updates
Highlights for the Week of February 7, 2022
I hope all are doing well. Here are a few things going on in and around district 9. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Unsheltered Homelessness Response Panel
The City-County Homeless Issues Committee will host an unsheltered homelessness response panel with outreach providers at its meeting on Monday.
Greater East Towne Plan
The Plan Commission will be discussing adoption of the Greater East Towne Plan as a supplement to the Comprehensive Plan at its meeting on Monday.
For additional information about additional meetings scheduled for this week, please consult the City Meeting Schedule online here
- The Streets Division's drop-off site located at 1501 W. Badger Rd will be closing on March 25, 2022 for a construction project. The site will remain closed until at least the spring of 2023. Read more here.
- Metro's draft network redesign plan is now available for review. Community engagement meetings are now being put together and a survey will be available soon to provide feedback. Complete info can be found here.
- Many vulnerable adults and families in Madison are getting by with no computer/internet, which means limited access to resources that could be helping lift them out of poverty. DANEnet's Digital Equity Project has been refurbishing donated laptops to distribute to low-income households identified through caseworkers and social workers at more than a dozen agencies around Dane County, and demand has been consistently outpacing their supply of donated laptops. You can help promote digital equity by donating working laptops to DANEnet's project. If a business has desktops to donate, DANEnet can accept them through Cascade Asset Management. More information can be found here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Neighborhood Grant Program FINAL call! The deadline to apply for the 2022 Neighborhood Grant Program is February 7, 2022, 4:30pm. If you were not able to meet with City staff prior to January 31 but feel that your project idea meets the program requirements, you are encouraged to apply.
