MPD Hosting Focus Groups to Aid Strategic Planning

The Madison Police Department is in the process of setting a long-range strategic plan and is seeking community input as part of the process. Each one of MPD's six patrol districts will host a meeting. The meetings will cover broad themes on topics such as community trust, the role of police, community policing, crime and safety, and police staffing.

Below is a list of dates and times for each district's meeting: 

  • North District: April 4, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
  • East District: April 5, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
  • Central District: April 7, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
  • West District: April 11, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
  • Midtown District: April 12 6:30 - 8 p.m. 
  • South District: April 13, 6:30 - 8 p.m.

(Midtown includes several D13 neighborhoods -- Dudgeon-Monroe, Vilas, Greenbush, Triangle, Monona Bay --and the South District includes the Bay Creek neighborhood.)

Community members will need to register for the virtual meetings at this link. Participants will need to select the meeting they plan to attend during the registration process. There is also an option to attend more than one meeting.

Tomorrow is Election Day -- Don't Forget to Vote!

The City Clerk's Office encourages voters to confirm their polling place before tomorrow's April 5 Spring Election. Many polling places in the City of Madison have changed because of redistricting. (For example, Dudgeon-Monroe voters will be split into two voting locations, Wingra School and Edgewood College.) The Clerk's Office sent postcards to voters in areas impacted by polling place changes in early March. Voters can view a sample ballot and check for their address on the MyVote Wisconsin website.

Candidates for tomorrow's Spring Election have responded to questions from the League of Women Voters.  Their unedited responses are available online to Dane County voters:

Street Division Updates

  • Yard waste collection begins April 4. Learn when you should put out your yard waste for collection by clicking here.

  • Brush collection begins April 4. Learn when you should put out your brush for collection by clicking here. You get five brush pickups a year. (Brush is woody material you have cut from a tree, shrub, or bush.)
