Madison is one of the most rapidly growing cities in Wisconsin, which puts pressure on city government, neighborhoods and developers to channel that growth to places not only with essential city services but also with crucial amenities like grocery stores. So, what’s the best way for Madison to build great neighborhoods? Participating on the panel at the High Noon Saloon on Tuesday were David Mollenhoff, Madison historian and a key player in the 1960s revitalization of the Marquette neighborhood; Heather Stouder, the city of Madison’s planning division director; Tariq Saqqaf, the city of Madison’s neighborhood resource coordinator; Sheray Wallace, Meadowood neighborhood activist and Michael Ford, an architecture instructor at Madison College whose work on the intersection of hip-hop culture and architecture has gained nationwide attention. Cap Times reporter Abby Becker moderated the event.
