By The OSCAR Group

With the final shuttering of the Oscar Mayer plant on Madison’s Northside earlier this summer, and with no immediate public plans for the redevelopment of the more than 70-acre site, the OSCAR (Organizing Strategic Community Action & Representation) group will be hosting two forums for neighborhoods most directly impacted by the plant’s closure.

The goal is to provide representative forums for the residents of Madison’s North and East side neighborhoods to assess community needs and benefits and to discuss options related to the future development of the Oscar Mayer site.

Area residents are invited to attend a Community Forum on Oscar Mayer Property. The first will be held Tuesday, Oct. 10, 6:30‒8 pm, at Warner Park Community Recreation Center, 1625 Northport Dr. The second will be held Tuesday, Nov. 14, 6:30–8 pm, location to be announced.
