Wouldn't that be ten years?

It would be. Kids Kingdom was built in 1997 though so I'm sure he just typed in the wrong year.

As Preston stated, I fumble-fingered the date. KK was originally built in 1997 and rebuilt after the arson in 2004. (And this retarded software won't let me edit the mis-type).

Anyone remember the old man that used to work at the hardware store?

Well, we were pretty spot-on everyone. Check this out:


Quote:
"SS Madison, LLC, has presented a proposal to the City for the development of a mixed-use residential and retail development on approximately 6.08 acres of land owned by Developer and located in downtown Madison between Sullivan Street and Short Street (the "Development Project")."
In other words, this is why the city is paying to relocate that substation...to get it out of the way of this project. Further research shows SS Madison, LLC has a Sealy listed as an owner (same Sealy associated with Belk Hudson Lofts).

The city is paying what I assume is an incentive in the amount of $1.1M to this development agreement.

I am beyond excited!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, this is great news for Madison. Really need some good dining and late night options near downtown. Hope it happens.

The City of Madison now has a very quick and easy way to let city officials know what types of restaurants and retail we want in the city. I encourage any of you with any interest in Downtown Madison, Madison Boulevard, Wall Triana, and the surrounding areas within the city limits to submit your ideas. Several requests sent to the right people in a company from a City (as opposed to some random person) may help our chances of landing some nice places to eat and shop.


Selfishly, I'd like for you to consider requesting a Chick-Fil-A for County Line Road. Shoot, even Madison Boulevard for that matter. We really need another one.

Looks like Breland owns a lot of acreage on the Southside of the railroad tracks near Downtown Madison. Look at this week's Planning Commission agenda. He is wanting to extend Kyser Boulevard and put in a considerable amount of single family residences. Looks like the Planning Commission is going to vote in down and keep the land zoned industrial - hoping for Toyota/Mazda growth I suspect. Breland wants to rezone the property to residential.

Years ago, I looked at a two bedroom for sale that was south of downtown Madison. They only wanted $25,000 so I went and looked at it. Yep, it had two bedrooms, and the rest of the house had burned down. I wish I had bought it...

Just a fresh coat of paint and it would've been ready to go.
