Announcements

  • The Common Council recently passed ORD-22-00012, which changes the order of business and procedures for registered speakers during Common Council meetings. These changes stemmed from policy recommendations made by the Task Force on the Structure of City Government (TFOGS). The new Common Council meeting format will go into effect on February 22, 2022. Find more about the improved process here.
  • The Common Council recently authorized the Lake Monona Waterfront Design Challenge, a Parks-led planning effort focused on developing a master plan for 1.7 miles of shoreline and 17 acres of parkland along Lake Monona's west shore (file# 68974). The intent of the design competition format is to attract regional and national planning expertise to the project. The challenge will be a two-year process, with design team selections and master plan options developed in 2022, and the refinement of the preferred master plan option and submittal to Council in 2023. A key component of the design challenge is forming an ad-hoc committee, whose responsibilities include selecting the competition participants and identifying a preferred master plan option. The success of the planning initiative depends on a committee that provides a broad range of representation with diverse perspectives. The time commitment for each committee member is estimated to average 4-8 hours per month over the next two years. Note the commitment will likely vary from month to month depending on committee responsibilities, with some months exceeding the 8-hour maximum average. Per the authorizing resolution, the available committee positions will include seven community representatives. Learn more about the Design Challenge here, including how to apply to be on the committee. The deadline for committee submissions is noon, February 23, 2022.
  • The City of Madison will not have a primary election on February 15, 2022. No office appearing on the Spring Election ballots in the City of Madison had enough candidates file to require a primary in the City on February 15. Find information about what will be on the April 5, 2022, ballot here.
