  • The City of Madison would like to invite anyone impacted by the upcoming Town of Madison Attachment process to a virtual public information meeting on Wednesday, September 15, at 6pm.  More information can be found here.

  • Redistricting, the process of redrawing Madison's wards and alder districts based on population changes that have occurred over the last decade, has begun. Redistricting determines which communities and neighborhoods are assembled into alder districts and other voting districts. There are many opportunities for the community to participate in the process. You can create maps illustrating your community of interest by using Representable, an online tool to share information about the interests and needs of your community.  Feedback can guide both the Dane County and City of Madison redistricting efforts. More information on the redistricting process, including updated population numbers for each current district, is available here. Draft new Alder maps are expected to be released this week and final Madison District/Wards maps are expected to be approved in October!

  • Dane County Alliance Against Commercial Tobacco sounds the alarm on new tobacco product: nicotine pouches.  Read more here.

  • On Monday, August 2, Metro Transit and the City of Madison Transportation Policy and Planning Board (TPPB) held a public hearing to discuss expected changes in fare collection technology and future policy changes that will be coming in the next few years.  The TPPB met again on Monday, August 16. It was decided that Metro will not move forward on any cashless policy proposals at this time. All other proposed technology polices were approved.  Review the meetings and materials and learn more here.

  • Metro's Transit Network Redesign Survey #2 is live.  Your input is essential! Please take this quick, 10-minute survey to help us better understand the 'type' of transit network to implement.
