  • Redistricting is happening right now! Locally, redistricting is the process of redrawing the City's alder districts and wards based on population changes over the last decade, using 2020 Census results.  Redistricting determines which communities and neighborhoods are assembled into alder districts.  Wards and polling places will also be adjusted to align with the redrawn boundaries. The timeline for this process is compressed due to COVID 19, but there is still time to give your feedback. See this page to provide feedback.  For more information on the process, see the Mayor's recent blog.
  • Please take a short survey about our city streets. This survey builds on what we have heard from the community so far on our shared values for streets. We would like to know more as we develop those shared values in a way that can guide decisions about streets and transportation. Take the survey.
  • A survey is now open for the community to give direct feedback on the future of John Nolen Drive, including the reconstruction from North Shore Drive to Olin Avenue. The survey is available in English  and Spanish .  The purpose of the survey is to gather initial input from the community on their thoughts regarding  John Nolen Drive. The input will be used to develop different options for the roadway, multiuse path, and shoreline design.  Read more here.
  • Beginning Monday, October 4, the City of Madison will move to the next stage of speed changes in this city-wide effort for the Vision Zero initiative. The posted speed limit on Whitney Way, from Sheboygan Ave to Tokay Blvd, will change from 30 mph to 25 mph. Mineral Point Rd, from Whitney Way to Science Dr, will also see a reduction of the posted speed limit from 40 mph to 35 mph. Similar to the recent Whitney Way changes, temporary digital signboards are present in the area to remind drivers of the speed limit changes.  Read more here.
  • Curbside brush collection by the Streets Division has ended for 2021. Do not set out brush for pickup at this time.  All residents have received their six collection opportunities for the year. Crews that were collecting brush will transition to collecting leaves and yard waste when that curbside service begins.  Curbside brush pickup will resume in the spring of 2022.  Read more here.
  • The Culture Collectives are now open on State Street! Eleven vendors were selected to pop-up their businesses in the two storefronts located at 440 and 444 State Street.  Learn more here.
  • City staff will be discussing the East-West BRT line and station locations at three upcoming public information meetings. Each meeting will focus on a specific section of the line – east, west and downtown.
    • October 7 – Eastside Line, Route & Stations
    • October 14 – Westside Line, Route & Stations
    • October 21 – Downtown Line, Route & Stations
