Why would KDH want to put someone on JCIDC’s Board, they no longer need free sewer lines to their new hospital or to sell the old downtown clinic site to the City.

Also, they are too busy out raising funds for their non profit hospital while they sit on millions in the bank. Forget the fact that they won’t accept the County’s health insurance plan because they they are unwilling to accept the payments that every other hospital within 100 miles is willing to accept for said services. Anybody still using KDH for healthcare either doesn’t know they are being gouged or doesn’t care because a 3rd party is paying for them.

The new CEO is a joke as is all of the overpriced administrators and doctors.

Cooke told Redevelopment Commission RDC he was done early this year.

The RDC could pay for the JDIC guy and have a dual role all for Economic development.

Then the RDC could also hire another special stellar person for downtown.

All paid out of TIF.

I think its all legal.if not who cares its Madison and nobody will ever know.

Latest gossip that’s been circulating around town is that KDH told JCIDC to take a flying leap. Seems the good ole boys tried to get someone from KDH to sit on their board and KDH said no thanks. Then JCIDC said how about some money cause we’re broke and KDH said no way Jose. It’s been in the works for a while but won’t take much longer I’m told for the city to hire JCIDCs boy and put him on city payroll. Then the JCIDC folks will be given some unofficial, official sounding title to save face.

Why do people say that we do not have good places to eat in this town. We have so many great restaurants that tourists and locals love to frequent. Red Pepper is our deli, Horst's for great donuts, Crystal & Jules brings people to Madison because there isn't a great restaurant in their towns, Taproom has great tacos, several pizza options, and fried food options...what more do you want? I bet when you go out of town to eat, you eat at chain restaurants anyway...cause you basic.

The Mad Paddle brewery,Big dreams, Congrats to Peter Ellis on the sale of the building.

Who buys anything without zoning and rules set in place already ?

The location has very little if any onsite parking.

How much money or favor has Mayor Welcooke pledged ? Stellar and RDC .

What happens if the City cant make up the Brewpub rules ?

I could careless if we have the brewery or not . 🌿

I hope the City has learned it’s lesson from the failed loans to the Downtowner, Shooters, etc., and doesn’t invest any money into the new Brewery. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to promote alcohol consumption. The place needs to stand or fall on its own.

Has any of the brewery naysayers been to an actual brew pub?

Brew pubs in Bloomington, Nashville, & Columbus are always the most packed places. (The Tap, Upland, Big Woods, Function, Lennies, 450 North, ZwanZigz). And the places in town that don't make their own but have a good selection of local beer (Red Pepperoni / Off Broad Way) are usually packed as well.

Bars where people pound bud light until they black out and micro brew pubs shouldn't be compared to each other.

Agree with Shawn. What a great opportunity to showcase our architecture and brewery history. Not everyone is looking to get slack jawed on cheap, inferior alcoholic beverages. A superior product commands a bigger price. Looking forward to seeing this exciting project get off the ground.

A lot of people like good beer. Myself and many others are very excited about finally getting a brewery. Stick your heads back in the ground.
