Perhaps by now you have heard of Imagine Madison. It is a public-listening campaign designed to elicit the opinions of Madison residents regarding impactful community issues. A primary goal of Imagine Madison is to reach, listen to, and record the ideas of a broad and diverse cross section of the public, on topics including housing, transportation, racial equity, sustainability and others. The input collected by the City of Madison's Planning Division through Imagine Madison will be used to update Madison's Comprehensive Plan, the City's action plan for the future. I am inviting you to get involved and to share your ideas.
The City of Madison's Imagine Madison campaign will hold public community meetings Monday, December 5th at the Central Library 3rd floor Community Room (201 W Mifflin St) and Wednesday, December 7th at the Village on Park Atrium Community Room (2300 S Park St). Both meetings will have identical schedules. The events will start with an open house from 5:30 to 6:15. An interactive presentation from 6:15-7:15 will include a snapshot of the ways Madison is changing and a brief overview of the Imagine Madison campaign and the Comprehensive Plan. Community members will be asked to identify the most important goals for the community to guide the City's Comprehensive Plan update. The meetings will culminate with an open house where residents can speak directly with City staff members.
Childcare assistance, refreshments, and translation services for Hmong and Spanish will be provided.
