The Changing Face of Madison

At the beginning of this year, Ronna Paris, who's been living in Florida for the past 30 years, asked what was happening to the "southside" she remembered. There wasn't much of a response. Perhaps it's just because many of you are still hesitant about leaving comments. Or maybe you just don't have enough information to respond to her question.

Former southsiders, and other Central High School alumni who now live in other cities and states but still are interested in what's happening in Madison, may want to read Dean Mosiman's story about the future of the Regent Street neighborhood, published in Sunday's Wisconsin State Journal. Click HERE to read the online version of article.

Also of interest is Marc Eisen's "Boom Town" story in Isthmus, a weekly Madison newspaper. Eisen writes that, "The central city is booming in a way unimaginable only a decade or so ago." By clicking HERE, you can have a look at some detailed maps of Madison, available on the Isthmus website, that show the location and status of many large construction projects.

Update (1/14/2008): Most of the links in this post are no longer active. I've tried to find updated links to the items I mention, but thus far have been unsuccessful.
