Madison Metro Transit Enhancement Fund is open to neighborhood associations. Submit proposal for transit related projects by July 1st. Ideas include creating ‘historical preservation’ bus shelters, landscaping, improved / beautified trash cans, street light improvements, public art projects, pedestrian and bicycle access programs, signage enhancements, and improved access for people with disabilities. Candace Pantoga will work on a bus shelter with bike rack proposal. We’ll need to raise matching funds, possibly from area businesses.
Take a Stake in the Lakes Clean Up Party is scheduled for Saturday, June 23rd. Meet at 9 am at the end of O’Sheridan Street to help clean up the bay. Then at noon, move to Brittingham Park for a post-clean-up party. Bring food to share and CDs.
Morningstar Dairy Noise. Currently, a parking lot that is supposed to be used for dairy employee vehicles is actually used to hold refrigeration trucks and trailers, which are extremely loud & disturbing to our BCNA members living in that area. Additionally, some trucks use very loud air horns to open the garage doors. Concerned neighbor Mike Mack would like your suggestions on how to deal with this problem. He has been actively writing to politicos and approaching Morningstar execs to no avail. One suggestion was to circulate a petition for people to sign. Your thoughts?
