How Is Mayor Trulock Continuing to Grow Madison?

    Thank you for joining us for another edition of Monday Morning Coffee. Today I am proud to introduce Madison Mayor, Troy Trulock, who is up for re-election and is here to discuss the future of Madison by answering a few of our questions, including one by one of our viewers. Let’s get right to it.

    Q: What is one of the biggest challenges facing Madison?

    A: One of our biggest challenges is keeping up with the tremendous growth we’re experiencing. We have an outstanding school system, with two middle schools and high schools recently recognized as some of the best in the state. These great schools attract people and families to Madison, and those families buy homes. Another factor is business. Businesses are profit motivated, and they follow the rooftops. Our excellent schools are attracting people to our area, which in turn is attracting business to the Madison area. We are working very hard to maintain and manage the tremendous growth of businesses and homes in Madison.

    Q: What is the city of Madison going to do to address these challenges?

    A: We are making tremendous improvements to our roads and infrastructures. We’ve recently added a second interchange that opens up a tremendous amount traffic and we are currently in the process of designing a third interchange in Madison.

    Q: Here’s a question from one of our viewers: What are you doing to expand Madison’s economic tax space?

    A: Economic development is huge in Madison. When you bring more businesses in, they pay for your roads, your schools, fire department, police, etc. A Mayor is like the CEO of a city, and the CEO’s job is to look long-term. Coming into office, I thought about what I wanted the city to look like in 20 or 25 years, and have taken steps ever since to make sure I leave our city with the brightest future possible. The first part of this was opening up the County Line interchange, which opened up 800 acres of economic development. The other is Town Madison, which opened up 700 acres of economic development. Both are now open, businesses are moving in, and we have over 1500 acres of additional economic development. In the next 20 years, Madison will continue to build out and grow.

    Q: Our final question: What’s in store for the future of Madison and what can we look forward to?

    A: We are currently putting in roads, infrastructure, and more to develop the area of town west of County Line Road. We have about 1800 lots under development, and we have a team that is working hard on a strategic plan for the area. The area west of County Line Road is going to grow significantly in the next 5-7 years, we are really looking forward to it.

    We’d like to thank Mayor Trulock for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer some of our questions. We hope you enjoyed the conversation, and if you have any questions for us, feel free to give us a call at 256-799-9000 or send us an email at info@AmandaHoward.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
