Madison, July 23, 2019: Our Neighborhood, Our Decision

Our Neighborhood, Our Decision

-It’s our community’s choice, not the choice of seven land developers.–

With the anticipated leave of the Southside Pick ‘n Save and the City’s plan to develop land intended to serve the Southside community’s needs, we MUST show up to the Tuesday July 23rd meeting!

———-

THE FACTS:
– Pick ‘n Save has considered several times throughout the years to leave their Southside location. They currently have a three year lease (short for commercial standards) that can be broken with a six months notice.
– The City is trying to sell the Truman Olson lot (the empty lot just south and next to Pick ‘n Save) with one requirement that a grocery store must be built.

The possibility that Pick ‘n Save is leaving is very high.

OUR DEMAND:
The development of the Southside properties that will serve low-to-no-income Black & Brown folx MUST BE LED BY LOW-TO-NO-INCOME BLACK & BROWN FOLX.

CALL TO ACTION:
Alder Tag Evers and Alder Sheri Carter will be hosting a listening session about the development of the Truman Olson lot.
City of Madison officials and land developers will be there.
Show up and support COMMUNITY-LED SOLUTIONS OF POVERTY & FOOD INSECURITY.

Join us Tuesday, July 23rd, 5:30 pm
Madison Labor Temple
1602 S Park St, Madison, WI 53715
