Madison Moves Forward With Jim Doyle Square

I know what your thinking, no this isn't about former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle. It is however about the father of Gov. Jim Doyle.

Madison is planning a square named after a Democrat Judge James Doyle, a Federal Judge from the late 60's and 70's.

UPDATE: MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison City Council passed the Judge Doyle Square project in a 12 to six vote early Wednesday morning. The motion passed at 3:15 a.m. after nearly nine hours of questions, comments and debate in a special council meeting.

The two-block area downtown includes the Madison Municipal Building and the East Government parking garage.

The development plan would cost a total of about $200 million, with about $47 million coming from the city, the rest coming from the developer. The plan includes building a 250,000 square feet headquarters for Exact Sciences, a 216 room hotel and about 30,000 square feet of retail space. There will also be public and private parking spaces.

We do wonder when the left in Mad Town will name something after the former Governor Jim Doyle. It will happen sooner than you think.
