Permanent home opening in 2018
The City of Madison purchased the former Griff’s Restaurant near Elver Park on McKenna Blvd. to be renovated for an adult and youth oriented employment services center. The City and the center’s operator, Urban League of Greater Madison, collaborated on four well-attended public meetings to collect information from neighborhood residents on desired training and programs to be offered and building design. At just under 4,000 square feet, the building will feature a large, dividable meeting room with attached kitchen, computer lab, self-serve computer kiosks, staff area and restrooms. The exterior siding and roofing materials will be replaced. It is expected to open in 2018.
