Event Highlights for the Week of October 18, 2021




Events, activities, seminars, etc.

  • Would your group or business like to provide more information on Metro's network redesign or bus rapid transit efforts to members and customers? Project staff would be glad to answer questions at your next virtual meeting or set up a table to answer questions at your in-person event. Learn more here.

  • From October through December, join Ho-Chunk Nation storyteller and tribal member AJ (Andi) Cloud for a variety of interactive storytelling and creative learning opportunities for all ages. With art workshops, activity kits, outdoor story walks, digital stories, exhibits, and more across the city, there are lots of ways to participate, celebrate, and learn. More details here.

  • Everyone is welcome Sunday, October 17, at 3pm to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Leopold Community Garden at Aldo Leopold Park, and a planting of native perennials at the new Fiddlehead Fern Family and Native Garden Sanctuary along the Cannonball Path at 4pm. Read more here.

  • The next Madison Night Market on State Street will run from 4pm-9pm on October 22. Vendors showcase handmade products, local art, artisan gifts, prepackaged foods and fresh produce. The event includes live music, special visiting food carts and pop-up restaurant experiences. Learn more here.


Announcements, press releases, press conferences, etc.

  • The City of Madison's planned East-West Bus Rapid Transit Project along Mineral Point Road and E. Washington Avenue is expected to involve minor changes in three public parks. See project images, read the impact description for each park, and submit your comments on these proposed changes. Comments will be accepted through October 31, 2021. More information here.

  • Please take a short survey about our city streets. The "Let's Talk Streets" Community Survey-Phase 2 builds on what the Department of Transportation has heard from the community so far on our shared values for streets. They would like to know more as they develop those shared values in a way that can guide decisions about streets and transportation. Take the survey here. The survey closes on Sunday, October 17.

  • The first complete draft of the South Madison Plan is now available for public review and comment here. Submit comments and complete the related survey by 4pm on Monday, October 18.
