On the Agenda: Madison bus routes on the chopping block

Transit & Parking Commission
Tuesday, May 13, 5 p.m.
Room GR-27 of the City-County Building

The commission will approve final changes to Madison Metro bus routes, to be implemented this August. Among the cuts: The last bus for Allied Drive would leave the Capitol Square at 10:15, not 10:45, thereby screwing anyone from the troubled neighborhood who has to work late downtown. A full list of changes is available here.

Affirmative Action Commission
Tuesday, May 13, 5 p.m.
Room LL-120 Madison Municipal Building

Minorities make up less than 10% of the city's top management positions. Women have snared just 34% of the top spots. But the city may finally be getting serious about improving its diversity. Brad Wirtz, Human Resources director, will present new recruitment strategies at Tuesday night's meeting.

Board of Parks Commissioners
Wednesday, May 14, 6:30 p.m.
Warner Park Community Recreation Center

The commission will vote on the proposed new shelter at Tenney Park on the near east side. The $1.2 million facility will include a large concession stand, a kitchen, a covered patio, and a large meeting room that could be used year-round. The Tenney Park Shelter Group, which includes local luminaries such as developer Terrence Wall, who grew up near the park, will raise part of the cost.

Long Range Transportation Planning Commission
Thursday, May 15, 6 p.m.
Room LL-110 Madison Municipal Building

Don't like what Metro did with the bus routes? Now's your chance to speak up and give your opinion on Madison's long-term transportation projects. With the cost of gas heading for $4 a gallon, would hurt to lobby for some more bus routes and even -- what the hell -- train service?
