Second Quarter 2018

Hello Everyone,

I am very excited to tell you all about the 2018 CIP (Capital Improvement Plan). You can see the presentation here: 2018 Capital Improvement Plan

While running for City Council I had two main goals for District 1 and one goal for the City as a whole:

1. A multi-use path on Wall Triana from the corner of Gillespie Road south to the corner of Browns Ferry Road. This multi use path will help those who live in the apartments walk safely to Kroger. It will also be a safer avenue for school children to more easily walk to West Madison Elementary School.

2. For the Mill Creek Greenway to be extended from the corner of Balch and Browns Ferry to Wall Triana. The Greenway will be extended and go between the Oakstone and Foxfield subdivisions. It will also go between Bridgefield and Park Meadow and will end at the bridge at Bridgefield.

3. To replace the current animal shelter that we have which is located next to City Hall. This shelter (holding facility would be a better description) was built in the early 90’s time frame by the Police Department and Limestone Prison Trustees. It is antiquated and I believe we can provide a better facility for our lost and abandoned animals.

I am thrilled to report that all three projects are “in the works.” The first two are, as mentioned, in the CIP plan for this year. Preparation has already begun with a Engineering Study for the multi use path and preparation for the Greenway extension as well. I am hopeful that construction will start on these two projects this year and will be completed in 2019.

The third project, a better facility for lost and abandoned animals in the Madison City Limits, will likely be a privately funded and supported venture. I am working with several rescue organizations to achieve this goal. There will be an opportunity for greater communication and working together among area rescues in the near future.

This CIP presentation included is a brief synopsis. If you would like to see the complete presentation, please send me an email or call me. Email Maura or I can be reached at 256.337.2408.

An additional goal that I have is to bring a Trader Joe’s to Madison. In doing research, by having a Distribution Center here would be very helpful. Please consider liking and sharing this Facebook page: Bring a Trader Joe’s Distribution Center to Madison!

We will be having a special groundbreaking celebration for our multi use venue/baseball stadium in the near future. Please watch this page for updates.

If I can help you in anyway or answer any questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you again for your continued support!
