L'shana tova to those celebrating Rosh Hashanah this week. Due to Labor Day and Rosh Hashanah, there are less City meetings this week than usual.

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

Planning staff has released multiple concept plans for Aldermanic redistricting on the City's Redistricting website.
