LOCAL ROLE/ACTION IN SHAPING COMMUNITY

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.

MMB TOUR & RECEPTION (MADISON MUNICIPAL BUILDING)

Come relax during this informal hour to discuss the day's events with governmental officials, staff, and peers. We'll walk over to the newly renovated MMB (Madison Municipal Building) with a 'sneak preview' tour and reception in the historically renovated courtroom (aka Room 260). MMB will be available for community use – come and think about ways on how you can use the facility. This time is always a big attraction – you will leave with new contacts, ideas, and ways to strengthen input on the local level.
