Comments: @Reality check. Everyone's name and address and phone is public record. And like JB said. Many of us were or are not in the district and We don't think they need to expand.. I bet you are one of those who * * * about government intrusion and overreach, and gripe about Obama, then you sit here and tell us you think it's fine for a small group of people to tell us what color our house can be??? Do you live in the district? If so I'm glad you are compliant and complacent. I will not easily comply.. They can waste money suing me.
Comments: Seems to me that if you want plastic windows, just live on the hill - easy enough!

Comments: News flash:} "if you don't like adhering to historic guidelines don't move into the historic district!"
Those arrogant b@stards!!
Most property owners downtown were here long before the hysterical board. Most new home purchasers were not informed by the realtor of the hysterical nuts who want to regulate their new purchased home.
The only way we are going to shake this dog poo off our shoes is to elect people who respect the property rights of others.
The only person in this city that can enforce a city ordinance is the Circuit Court Judge. "Stop it Johnson" and Jan The Elks fiasco with the cops and a stop work order have no authority with your project.
Sure, they can waste tax dollars and sue you but without the judges signature they are pizzing in the wind.
Before you cast your vote this coming election ask your candidate where they stand with the hysterical crazies.

Comments: Several years ago, my wife and I had outgrown our current house and started looking around Madison for something that would suit our needs. There were several properties downtown that were very nice and fit within our budget! We ended up not buying in downtown for one reason only....Hysterical Madison Society!
Based on what I'm reading, I have no regrets for not moving into downtown Madison. However, we are one family. What happens when 10, 20 or even more decide NOT to move to downtown because of this overzealous, power crazed "society"?
The downtown area has suffered enough over the years and the Historical Board is doing way more harm than good....I can see that from the outside looking in!
Kick them to the curb. Madison cannot afford their rule!
Just my .02
