This e-mail is to invite you, your friends and family to a free training event provided by the City of Madison Police Department. This training is open to all members of the Madison community, although this is a mature topic and the presentation provides candid information that may not be suitable for children under the age of 10.
Class Description:
It is unfortunate that sudden violence perpetrated by an individual bent on killing innocent people is a reality in modern American communities. The good news is the likelihood of finding yourself under fire by an active shooter is roughly equivalent to being struck by lightning. However, as you can lessen your chances of being struck by lightning, there are simple things you can do to respond effectively if you ever find yourself in this unthinkable situation. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) class is a statistically based training program for all members of the Madison community interested in demystifying these frightening events. The training will include: A statistical breakdown of active shooter events, historical case studies & behavioral tools to maximize your chances of survival, table-top scenario discussions & Q&A session w/MPD active shooter experts.
Upcoming dates for this training are this Thursday 11/10/2016 at 6pm and Thursday 02/09/2017 at 6pm.

Feel free to pass this information along to anyone who you believe may be interested in learning this important information. The training is free and is held in the auditorium at:
The City of Madison Police Training Center

Please mark your calendars for the first round of community meetings related to "Imagine Madison", the process to update our Comprehensive Plan. The main objectives of these meetings, which will both have the same program, are to provide background information on city data and issues and to review major goals that have been synthesized from the 2006 Comprehensive Plan and subsequent City plans. Snacks and childcare opportunities will be provided.

The City of Madison Comprehensive Plan will provide a strategic long-term vision; basic goals, objectives, policies; and recommendations to help guide the City's future growth and development. The Comprehensive Plan represents a focus on planning thought and effort - an attempt to identify and analyze the complex forces, relationships, and dynamics of growth in order that they can be shaped and directed in accordance with recognized community goals and aspirations. It is a realistic appraisal of what the community is now, a normative and futuristic blueprint of what the community wants to be, and a specific set of recommendations for achieving community desires. The Comprehensive Plan is the policy document for the physical, social, and economic growth and redevelopment of the City. As such, the plan influences policy decisions in a broad variety of areas, including, but not limited to the following:

Land use
Infrastructure and utilities
Environmental conservation Urban reinvestment
Economic development
Recreation and open space Housing.
When adopted, the Comprehensive Plan will be one of the primary tools used by City agencies, the City and Planning Commissions, and other policy bodies to make decisions about the location of land uses and community facilities, priorities for public investment and the extension of public services, business development, and how to meet transportation needs.
Comprehensive planning is also a continuous process and the development of the Plan should be viewed as a dynamic process. Formulation of this text, figures and tables is not the ultimate objective; rather the use of the Plan is what is important. Further, a Comprehensive Plan is only as good as the measures used to implement the plan. No single document can pose solutions to all community needs, and the Comprehensive Plan must be a flexible, continuous and changing activity that is periodically updated based on changing conditions, the shifting of resources, and the alteration of goals. As such, the City's first General Development Plan was adopted in 1969 and subsequently updated in 1979 and 1996. This latest Comprehensive Plan will not only update the City's profile and reevaluate the City's goals and objectives, but will also develop the necessary information to help the City and its citizens implement their long term vision for their community.
