Guess what?  Plans are approved not only for the community center but an entire overhaul for Madison Park in Madison, TN.

Metro Arts is asking for ideas for public art for the new park.  Epic, right?   This is the announcement from Metro Arts:

Share Your Thoughts on Public Art for Madison and Smith Springs Parks!
Public art is making its way to neighborhoods across Nashville and Davidson County, and we need your input! New community centers at Madison Park and Smith Springs Park are in the design phase now, and both include opportunities for public art. If you live or work in one of these neighborhoods, we hope you’ll spend a few minutes telling us what makes your community special. We will share this feedback with the selected artists as they create concepts for public art at these community centers.
Please follow this link to our website or go directly to the online feedback forms:

and check out this announcement from Councilman Bill Pridemore, our hero, who fought hard to get approval:

Madison will Receive a New Community Center as approved in the FY 2016 Capital Improvement Plan

I am pleased to announce that a master plan for the entire Madison Park has been developed including a new Community Center. The new Community Center is a recommendation of the Countywide Parks & Greenways Master Plan. Last year, Mayor Dean and the Metro Council allocated funding for design. Construction has NOW been funded.  The construction cost estimate has been provided to the Mayor and Metro Council and has been included in the FY16 capital spending plan. The building should be completed in early 2017. The master plan is a long-term guide for future investments in the park‘s outdoor areas.

So, Madison is rising like a phoenix out of the ashes.  Respect.  We love Madison.
