Madison Common Council approves funds to begin Market’s construction

After a lengthy discussion at the October 17 meeting of the Madison Common Council, the alders voted 15-3 to provide the necessary funding to favorably respond to the lowest construction bid, which must be enacted by October 24. The City Council has added $1.64 million to the project after construction bids came in over budget in September. This allows the construction on the long awaited to public market project to begin as early as November of this year. Read all about this extremely favorable development in coverage provided by local media, including the Cap Times, Wisconsin State Journal and Isthmus.

“The Madison Public Market, long in gestation, offers us an extraordinary opportunity to create something special for the public good. It is a unique mash-up inter-weaving economic development, social enterprise, arts, culture and local history, creative place-making, and much more. What a unique asset that will benefit our local community for many years ahead!” - Karen Crossley
