Upcoming virtual lunch and learns and evening engagements

The City of Madison Planning Division is continuing digital engagement for the Greater East Towne and Odana Area Plan with a series of virtual lunch and learns and evening engagements.  This follows up on Mall Madness, a tournament style bracket used to better understand the public's thoughts and preferences about how these areas could transform in the coming years.
The weekly series of virtual lunch and learns and evening engagements will discuss different aspect of plan development.  The first week’s engagements will focus on issues associated with malls and large commercial areas.  It will also provide an opportunity to discuss how Covid19 presents new challenges for these areas.  The second week will highlight mall redevelopment examples from around the country, and how those efforts activated stagnant, dead or declining commercial areas.  Subsequent weeks will take an in depth look at the Greater East Towne and Odana Area Plan boundaries and the unique issues and opportunities present.
These webinars will use Zoom and are accessible via computer, smart phone or phone (audio only).  Advance registration is required.  Sign up here to participate.
