Regional Vision Survey

December 17, 2015 2:07 PM

Many know that I am the Chair of the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (CARPC). Over the past year we have been working to create a new regional vision for the Greater Madison area. Our first step is to conduct a Values Study as indicated below.

There is a Steering Committee of over 35 terrific people from throughout the region from many walks of life that have been working on the project and will be using the information you and your neighbors provide to start the next phase of the project to really understand the impacts of land use and how we as a community would like to see our community grow.

Please take twenty minutes to complete the survey and pass along to friends. Everyone is welcome to take the survey so that we know more about what our community truly values.

Thank you!


How we grow matters. Where and how we build and connect buildings, roads, and parks affects our economic opportunities, our well-being, and the natural environment. In short, growth matters to what we care about and value. 

Planning for future growth and transportation needs will position the region for success.  The first step is the Greater Madison Region Values and Priorities Survey.  This 20-minute anonymous survey will tell us about your feelings concerning the quality of life here and priorities for the future.

Please click HERE to complete the Values and Priorities Survey.

A Greater Madison Vision, an initiative of the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission, will use the survey results to engage you and your neighbors in conversations about how we grow. Drawing on shared values, community members will help define growth options, and select the option that best matches regional values.  The outcome will be a vision and strategy for growth in the Greater Madison Region that generates real improvements to issues we care about.  For more information go to

The Madison Area Transportation Planning Board, an MPO (MATPB) will use the survey results as a foundation for development of the vision, goals, and priorities for the MATPB's Regional Transportation Plan 2050.  For more information, go

Please take the time to participate in this important survey to help us identify the shared values of people in the region.  Also, feel free to forward this note to others.
