MPD Seeking Community Input on Policing

The Madison Police Department is in the process of setting a long-range strategic plan. MPD has enlisted the Matrix Consulting Group to assist in developing the plan, which covers 5-7 years. MPD is seeking community input throughout this process. One method of doing this is through virtual community focus group meetings facilitated by our outside consultants. These meetings will provide opportunities for community members to provide input on MPD's long-range strategic plan. 

Each one of MPD's six patrol districts will host a meeting. The meeting 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.

Department of Transportation Public Meetings about the Beltline Corridor Study 

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Southwest Region has scheduled two public involvement meetings to discuss the Planning and Environment Linkages (PEL) corridor study underway for the Madison Beltline. The Madison Beltline PEL study is a long-term planning study, and no construction projects are identified at this time.  

Input from the upcoming PEL study public involvement meetings will be utilized to identify a range of potential long-term solutions to address local and regional safety, accessibility, and mobility issues along the Madison Beltline corridor between US 14 in Middleton and County N in Cottage Grove.

The PEL is expected to be completed in 2023. Upon completion of the PEL study, solutions studied will be further evaluated under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.
 
The objectives of the PEL study are to:
  • Improve safety for all travel modes
  • Improve pedestrian and bicycle accommodations
  • Enhance transit ridership and routing opportunities
  • Improve connections across and adjacent to the Beltline for all travel modes
  • Address Beltline infrastructure condition and deficiencies
  • Address system mobility for all travel modes
  • Limit adverse social, cultural, and environmental effects to the extent practicable
  • Enhance efficient regional multimodal access to Madison metropolitan area economic centers
  • Decrease Beltline traffic diversion impacts to neighborhood streets
  • Complement other major transportation initiatives and studies in the Madison area
  • Support infrastructure and other measures that encourage alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle travel
The public plays an important role in the study process, and we encourage residents and anyone that travels the Beltline to attend one of the two meetings to learn about the study process and provide insights and feedback. The same material will be presented at each meeting.
 
The meetings will be held on the following dates, times and locations:
Tuesday, April 12
5 - 6:30 p.m.
(Presentation at 5:30 p.m.)
James Madison Memorial High School Commons
201 S. Gammon Road, Madison

On this page, you can watch the presentation video, view the individual displays, take a short survey and provide feedback via the comment form.
