Great news! Common Council votes 17 – 3 to save the Public Market


Great News! The City’s Common Council alders voted 17 – 3 to request $4.5 million from the TID #36!  Initially, Alders Syed Abbas, Regina Vidaver and Nasra Wehelie proposed using up to $6 million from a robust TIF district on the East Washington Avenue corridor to close the gap, but the council on Wednesday, November 16, supported an option to deliver $4.5 million in TIF given the county’s contribution and the potential for other savings. This vote is an extremely important vote of confidence for the Market’s construction, and allows us to actively plan for construction.

“I’m excited about the multi-cultural emphasis Madison’s Public Market will have. I look forward to the local tastes, sounds, activities, and works of art to enjoy in one place. This will be a popular destination for people of all ages and all backgrounds.” - Steve Goldberg
