Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: The Campus Area Neighborhood Association (CANA) is a grassroots, not-for-profit advocacy group that meets bi-monthly to build civic engagement, community solidarity, and neighborhood advocacy for the residents of campus & campus area. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, all meetings are conducted virtually, Monday 5pm to 6pm. From time to time, local developers and public safety officials can consult with CANA as a local entity prior to presenting their development or proposals to the City of Madison. Such a norm allows CANA to serve as a vehicle for its constituents to voice their concerns and questions on the shape, character and future of their neighborhood. Historically, State-Langdon Neighborhood Association first formed in 1979. After several years of inactivity, it reactivated in 2008, after which it was revived once again in July 2020.

Dayton St., N. Frances St., Regent Street on the south, N Park Street and Elm Drive on the west. South Campus: Block between University Avenue on the north, N.
