Expanding Library
A budget amendment to expand the Meadowridge Library in the Meadowood Shopping Center passed the Common Council on Thursday, November 13.  Funding for the expansion will be part of the 2013 budget.  Planning and implementation will be undertaken by the Madison Library Board.
Community Centers
The budget passed by the Common Council also contained $1.7 million for community centers.  Specific allocation of those funds will occur after the first of the year.  Residents of Southwest Madison have been pressing for some of that funding (around $250,000) be spent on buying and renovating a house on Theresa Terrace to serve as a neighborhood center.
Community Supper

A community supper was held Saturday, November 10, at Falk Elementary School to plan for a potential neighborhood center on Theresa Terrace.  Members of the community, students from the University of Wisconsin and Mayor Soglin attended as did students representing the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County.
