MADISON, Wis. - Madison Mayor Paul Soglin wants a green light on the public potion of the Judge Doyle Square Project so it can move forward while the private development is hashed out.
City officials wanted to have a comprehensive agreement, including a new hotel, finalized this month, but that timeline included more than $40 million in TIF money.
The public portion includes a renovation of the municipal building and the Government East Parking Ramp.
“You don’t nail it the way you want it the first time around, but when you make a decision that’s good for 40, 60, 100 years, taking some extra time to get it right is well worth it,” Soglin said.
The mayor wants flexibility to do the public work first and save space for the private development later, which he hopes will be a hotel serving Monona Terrace.
