Mayor Dave's Plan for Madison

Mayor Dave released a memo to Department Heads regarding the 2006 capital budget Monday. A few tidbits:

  • Two more swimming pools will be included in my 10-year plan; like the first pool, they will be built with a combination of public and private funds
  • A new Central Library: included in my 10-year plan, funded through a mix of public and private support
  • Streetcars: included in my 10-year plan; funded through a mix of local, state and federal funds
  • Redevelopment of East and Towne malls along New Urbanist lines: private investment
Reasonable ideas, but for the streetcars... I'd love to see rail to O'hare, Milwaukee and Minneapolis.
