It's not too late to sign up to attend the Neighborhood Conference and join hundreds of your friends and neighbors who are already planning to attend. This year's event, at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center will feature an update on this summer's flooding, an opportunity to hear from the City's Transportation Director Tom Lynch, and great opportunities to network. There will be sessions on many topics including traffic management, crowd funding, pedestrian safety and neighborhood traffic management, community engagement, affordable housing and many more. I look forward to greeting everyone at 9:00 a.m.. that morning.
Our community-wide conference is about making new connections, forming new partnerships, and strategizing together about how we can celebrate and tackle our neighborhoods greatest
challenges. It is also about expression – showcasing some of the coolest place making projects, applaud creative ways neighbors achieved desired changes, and celebrate the work that residents do to make their block and/or neighborhood a better place to live.
This is always a really inspiring day, and City staff have been working for months to plan this inclusive event. There will be tours of the historic and newly renovated Madison Municipal Building and a reception there to wrap up the day. Please plan to attend! You can get more details here.
