August 12th City Council funded three more projects as part of the 7-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) including:
• Programming and design development phases of Madison Library Branch Renovation and Expansion Planning;
• Balch Road Widening & Lane Improvements from Browns Ferry Road to Gooch Road (Engineering Design Only); and
• Space needs assessment programming and 20-year+ life cycle planning for City Hall and its accessory facilities (100 and 174 Hughes Road).
The approvals follow on previous efforts including the Madison Growth Plan, adopted in January of 2012, that recommends investment in the City's key development areas, as well as parks and recreation.
