SHAPING COMMUNITY/DRIVING ACTION

The City of Madison Mayor's Neighborhood Conference 2018 brings together hundreds of the most thoughtful, conscious, and caring people involved in neighborhoods across our city. Our community-wide conference is about making new connections, forming new partnerships, and strategizing together about how we can celebrate and tackle our neighborhoods greatest challenges. It is also about expression – showcasing some of the coolest place making projects, applaud creative ways neighbors achieved desired changes, and celebrate the work that residents do to make their block and neighborhood a better place to live.

Deeply engaged and active residents is what helps fuel change – let's work on how to effectively cultivate our civic infrastructure so it electrifies all of us. Come to this event to learn, meet, and support people who care about their community.

Mayor's Q & A

The Mayor and two Department Directors will be on hand to describe priority issues for the City and to answer questions from the audience. Take this open mic opportunity to ask a question of these City leaders.

Contributors: Mayor Paul R Soglin; Tom Lynch, Director of Transportation; and Natalie Erdman, Director of Planning, Community & Economic Development.

DreamUp Wisconsin: Community-University Partnership to Increase Income in Dane County

When the University of Wisconsin-Madison was selected by Schmidt Futures as part of its Alliance for the American Dream Initiative, the grant came with a significant challenge: Produce innovative ideas for increasing the net income of 10,000 Dane County families by 10% by 2020. Learn more about DreamUp Wisconsin, the local implementation launched to meet the challenge, and the 11 semi-finalist proposals submitted by teams of community and university partners, which offer innovative ideas to grow and support Dane County's middle class.

Contributors: Hilary Shager, Associate Director, Institute for Research on Poverty, UW-Madison.

Navigating City Processes and Shaping Policy (Repeat): We want to provide residents with the working knowledge of City government.  A team of alders will provide their INSIGHTS on what works well in making a difference working with elected officials and City staff.  You'll leave the room better equipped to be more effective advocates. The last part of the session, we'll offer five minute "ask-a-question booths" with selected City departments.  This speed info session will give insight on how to start tackling an issue in your neighborhood!  

Contributors: Alder Harrington-McKinney, District 1; Alder Rummel, District 6; Alder Carter, District 14; and Kwasi Obeng, Chief of Staff, Common Council

To Park or Not to Park – And Where is that Bus Stop?

We will untangle the web of issues around the use of residential streets for daylong parking, the use of residential streets by transit users, as well as the supply and cost of parking in the downtown. Then we will jump to what is stopping us from expanding our bus fleet and how we can get buses moving faster. The workshop will pull the pieces together; describe why and how they are interconnected, and how we can better manage our growing City with a network of workable agents.

Contributors: Sabrina Tolley, Parking Manager, Parking Utility; and Chuck Kamp, General Manager, Metro Transit.

Helping Elder Neighbors Stay Safe and At Home

Preventing falls and building "dementia-friendly communities" are two practical steps to help elder neighbors remain safe and independent at home. Falls land more older adults in the hospital than any other injury cause; 40% who suffer a serious fall end their life in a nursing home. The good news is:  falls are not an inevitable part of aging. Learn how to bring Stepping On, a program shown to reduce elder falls by 30%, to your neighborhood. And hear about the Dementia-Friendly Communities movement and tools we can all use to support people with dementia and their families.

Contributors: Ms. Charlie Daniel, Program Coordinator, Safe Communities MDC; and Joy Schmidt, Dementia Care Specialist, Aging and Disability Resource Center.

 

Imagine Madison – Moving Forward Priority Recommendations

The Imagine Madison process to update the City's Comprehensive Plan went beyond the usual public meetings and hearings to work directly with community organizations to facilitate conversations with historically underrepresented groups. You'll learn about a few of the priority recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan, related feedback from the community, and what's next in terms of making progress.

Contributors: Kirstie Laatsch, Planner, Planning Division; and Aaron Perry, CEO/Founder, Rebalanced-Life Wellness Association.

Starting a Retail Business ...What you need to Know

Have you dreamed of opening a small business that would serve your neighbors and help create a stronger sense of community near your home? Eclectic and stable small businesses are the heart of our neighborhoods.  An evolving business plan + financing + hard work = a successful small business. Do not worry, there is support for you and your business! Madison is resource rich in business planning assistance, alternative financing and support for small businesses. Find out what resources are available for small businesses.

Contributor: Andrea Hughes, Project Director, WWBIC (Wisconsin Women's Business Initiative Corporation).

There may also be those in the community who don't have the skills needed to collaborate with others on an equal standing.
