Letter in Support of the Public Market


Dear City of Madison Alders,

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback on the City of Madison capital budget. I’m writing in strong support of the $7.5 million to help fund the construction of the Madison Public Market. This is an incredible opportunity for our community and it’s sure to be Madison’s next cherished community place. I’m supportive of the Market because it will benefit our community in three important ways. The Madison Public Market will:

  • Focus on entrepreneurial opportunities within communities that are typically left out of the business start-up conversation.
  • Bring more local food to large institutions across the region through the Market’s Food Innovation Center.
  • Create a truly multi-cultural community gathering place that is alive with social and economic activity.

Personally, I am most excited about …

Please keep the full Public Market funding of $7.5 million in the 2018 capital budget.

Best,

 

“I am excited about the sensory experience that the Madison Public Market will offer. Some of my most memorable travel experiences have been the sights and smells of souks and markets in North Africa and South America. It is so great to meet the people who produce the products.” - Tom Otto, Economic Development Specialist, City of Madison
