MADISON (WKOW) — The City of Madison is working on a new plan for the future of South Madison.
City officials held a public meeting Thursday night at the Catholic Multicultural Center on Beld Street, where they gathered feedback from people who live on the city’s south side.
They also shared details about what will happen when part of the Town of Madison is absorbed into the city in 2022.
“We can imagine, there are a lot of changes, maybe a lot of anxiety about coming into the city in a few years, and we want to be prepared for that and help residents prepare for that as well,” Planning Division director Heather Stouder told 27 News.
One challenge in South Madison has been food access. Right now, the city is looking through applications from four developers for a project that would include a grocery store at the old Truman Olson site on South Park Street.
