From PHNA President Tania Banak:

Wanted to let you know about several exciting events

occurring in the greater SW Madison neighborhoods area:

Wed. Aug. 26, 7-8:30 pm

Neighborhoods Restoring Safety Meeting

At Falk Elementary School , 6323 Woodington Way, Madison

(child care will be provided for children 2-12 to allow more residents to attend)

In June, Madison ’s Mayor called on neighborhood leaders to design responses and solutions to the many problems evident in our neighborhoods on the southwest side. Many neighborhood leaders have been working to respond to the Mayor’s call for grassroots efforts and action. This program will focus on solutions and actions regarding:

  • Safety and positive behavior in public and in the school
  • Safety enhancement and enforcement by city and county officials
  • Housing issues

Please attend! And let your neighbors know about this meeting, too!
