“Overall, I’d say that it is a goal that making sure our city progressive and grows and continues to be a great place for everyone to live, work. and play.”- Alder Mark Clear on his philosophy of Madison city redevelopment¬†

What will the city of Madison look like in 10 years? What do you expect to see? Today on A Public Affair, we had a chance to preview this change. On Tuesday August 20th, our host Carousel Bayrd sat down with Alders Mark Clear and Marsha Rummel to discuss city redevelopment.

Zoning code changes, building/demolition permits, preservation, and affordable housing were some of the key points of this in-depth discussion about Madison’s redevelopment and how the city will adapt to changing times. Both Alders Clear and Rummel told us about their hopes that Madison will not only be able to grow our commercial tax base so we can continue to meet our basic needs as a city, but also to¬†continue to be an innovative place to live.
