City meetings


Wednesday: Oak Park Place proposals virtual meeting

Oak Park Place intends to submit plans to the City in October to seek re-approval for two projects that were previously approved, but not built. 

One is a 12-unit townhome project at 5818 Gemini Drive that was previously approved in 2006. One is a 99-unit age restricted, senior housing multifamily development at 5817 Halley Way that was previously approved in 2015. 

Join us for a virtual neighborhood meeting to hear about these proposals, ask questions and provide your feedback. Oak Park Place representatives and city staff will all be on hand to answer your questions.

What do you value when it comes to your streets?

The City of Madison has been connecting with members of the community to learn what is important to them when it comes to streets throughout the city. The goal is to create an equitable process to design and construct streets – including roadways, sidewalks, terrace trees, and everything in between.

Take the survey and have your opinion recorded.

To request a printed survey, contact or call 608-266-6225.
