The school year is fast approaching and as we get ready to send our little ones off to Kindergarten, a small "meet & greet" play date has been arranged in hopes of making that first day of school not so scary...as they'll hopefully be able to recognize some friendly faces!!

Please bring a drink (juice boxes or jug with cups) --OR-- a small snack to share (cookies/chips/crackers etc.) Figured "pot-luck" style would be the easiest. Plates and a couple of tables to put the snacks on will be provided.

Far East Side Fire Station Meeting

Please join City of Madison Real Estate and Fire Department staff to discuss the proposal of a far-east side Fire Station on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 pm at the East District Police Station Community Room, 809 S. Thompson Drive.

Several years ago, a new fire station was slated to be built in our area to preserve the fire department's benchmark of a 5-minute response time for ambulance and fire truck service. The original lot was to be part of the school site in the Door Creek neighborhood, but the school district has failed to reach agreement with the city and we have gone shopping elsewhere.

There is a lot for sale in the Metro Tech area (southeast corner of Milwaukee St. and Sprecher Rd.) between Towne Center Dr. and the interstate. It meets the response time goal, has proper access, an approved use in the neighborhood plan, a suitable price, a willing seller and buyer.
