November 12, 2021 4:13 PM

Events, activities, seminars, etc.

  • With wintery weather ahead, be sure to check out all the opportunities for outdoor fun to be had in Madison Parks. Whether it's a tried-and-true favorite or exploring a new activity, you're certain to find something you'll enjoy.
  • Good news! Public Health Madison Dane County is now booking appointments for 5-11 year olds only at the Arena clinic at the Alliant Energy Center, open Tuesday through Saturday. Demand is high, and appointments may be limited. Consider also checking with your health care provider or other local vaccinators for an appointment. There are many services available at the Alliant including, a temporary clinic for first doses, second doses, boosters, and vaccines. Book an appointment by clicking here. Appointments are required for 5-11 year olds and strongly recommended for all others to avoid long wait times. Walk-in availability is not guaranteed. If you need help booking an appointment, please call (608) 242-6328. This site is a walk-in site. It is not a drive thru site. There are transportation options available, if you need a ride. If you booked an appointment, have your confirmation email handy, either on your phone or printed out. Public Health also offers vaccination at their South Madison and East Washington offices. 5 to 17 year olds are able to receive the Pfizer vaccine, but they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when they arrive to be vaccinated. If this is not possible, a parent or guardian needs to be reachable by phone.
  • In conjunction with the Mexican Mobile Consulate's visit to Madison College's Goodman South Campus, 2429 Perry Street, you're invited to attend an Immigration Resource Fair, offered from 10am – 2pm each day on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21 at the campus. Attendees will have an opportunity to consult with Madison College's Legal Clinic volunteer lawyers, learn about creating an emergency contact plan, meet with area community organizations who provide immigration resources, have documents notarized, and much more! Services available in Spanish. There will also be COVID-19 vaccinations available, including for children ages 5 and up, on a first come-first served basis. Questions? Please call 608-242-6260.

  • On November 11, the Common Council approved the City's 2022 Capital and Operating Budgets.

View all the details at
  • Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), which are second dwelling units on properties with single-family homes, can be a great opportunity to provide additional housing options in neighborhoods across our growing city. ADUs have been allowable in Madison since 2013, and many growing cities across the U.S. are beginning to allow them or to relax zoning regulations to promote more of them. Based on recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan, recent housing reports, and the Mayor's 2021 Housing Forward Initiative, elected officials and staff have proposed changes to the City's Zoning code to help make the construction of Accessory Dwelling Units easier as another housing choice in Madison (please see Legislative Item 68079.) To find out more about the scope of the proposed changes, please review one or both of these focused resources:
    • Brief memorandum from Planning & Zoning Staff, dated November 2, 2021
    • 15-minute video of Staff Presentation to Plan Commission on November 8, 2021 (starts at Minute 9:30 in video)
    • Scheduled Public Hearings (Virtual Meetings)
      • Monday, November 22, 2021 Plan Commission (5:30 PM Start)
      • Tuesday, December 7, 2021 Common Council (6:30 PM Start)
    • Please feel free to submit questions for staff or written comments for consideration by Plan Commissioners and members of the Common Council to:, with "ADUs" in the subject line.
