"City hosting event concerning Mulberry Street development"

The Madison America’s Best Communities team is inviting all residents of Madison and especially residents, businesses, and property owners on Mulberry Street to help “re-imagine Mulberry” as part of the 11-month plan to revitalize the Madison community during the “Connecting People to Mulberry: Creative Discovery Tour” on July 26 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Electric Lady.
Jeremy Fojut, Chief Idea Officer of NEWaukee, will present a keynote presentation and facilitate an interactive discussion at 2:00PM, followed by an urban hike of Mulberry at 3:30, a hundred-day planning session at 4:00PM, and a 5:00PM happy hour. NEWaukee is a “social architecture firm” that promotes programs and initiatives that encourage residents of Milwaukee to look critically at their city, realize its potential, and empower residents to create a city they want to enjoy.
The Mulberry Street revitalization was specifically identified in the ABC plan due to its proximity to Hatcher Hill, wide right of way, ability to be a connector to the riverfront, and the diverse array of businesses, residences, and open space that make Mulberry a community asset.

The school will be open for tours and viewing at the event. To attend the event, follow the brown directional signs to the refuge office off of U.S. 421.
