2022 Executive Capital Budget

On August 31, Mayor Rhodes-Conway released the 2022 Executive Capital Budget and 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) detailing her funding proposal for buildings, infrastructure, and other capital investments for Madison. View the City's full budget process, along with detailed budget information here. The Finance Committee will hold hearings on the Capital Budget next week (9/13 & 9/14).

Redistricting Update

The Ad Hoc Redistricting Committee will continue its work this Thursday beginning at 4pm. The redistricting process is extremely compressed this year due to the delay in receiving the 2020 census results. Staff hopes for the Ad Hoc Committee to recommend a draft redistricting plan at this week's meeting in order to take out for community feedback with a final draft being presented to the Common Council on October 7th.

Planning staff drafted four concept plans that were presented to the committee last week. You can view those plans here. All of the draft plans show significant changes to the boundary of District 15. You can view the estimated timeline for the City's redistricting process and many other resource related to redistricting at the webpage here. You can find the details for Thursday's meeting including a link to register for comment here.
