You are invited to the South Madison Plan kick-off planned for September 19, Catholic Multicultural Center, 6:00 – 7:45 pm. A light meal, childcare, and interpreters (Spanish and Hmong) will be at the event.  We'll be discussing what is important to south side residents, businesses, and the future for the community.  Bring your family, friends and neighbors. 

South Madison Plan Community Impact Sessions
The purpose of these sessions is to bring South Madison residents, businesses, and stakeholders together to develop a shared vision for the South Madison area. The focus will be on economic development, land use, housing, transportation, sustainability, food access, cultural resources, and other aspects of our community that affect well-being.

The planning area is bounded by Wingra Creek on the north, John Nolen Dr. on the east, W Beltline Hwy on the south, and Fish Hatchery Rd. on the west. All meetings are open to the public.

Session 1: "Assets, Opportunities & Challenges" Thursday, Sept 19 at Catholic Multicultural Center, 1862 Beld St.
Session 2: "Visioning & Guiding Principles" Thursday, Oct 24 at the Urban league of Greater Madison, 2222 S Park.
Session 3: "Key Issues, Strategies & Solutions" Thursday, Nov 21 at The Villager Mall (Atrium), 2300 S Park St.

Additional sessions will take place in 2020.

Resident Volunteers Needed for Small Group Sessions
We are looking for south side residents to spend 1-2 hours to meet with city staff to discuss creating art/cultural expression and to discuss how better to bicycle safely around the neighborhood.  RVSP your space below.

Art and Placemaking Walk
Karin Wolf, Madison Arts Coordinator, will explore ideas of how art can inspire to story with meaning. You'll visit three locations and share your ideas. This interactive session on Tuesday, September 24, and a follow-up session on October 22, will lead to a new, resident-inspired artform. Connected with the update to the South Madison Plan, this is a way to express what your neighborhood means to you. Tuesday, Sept 24 and Oct 22, 6:00 – 7:45pm

Bike and Talk Action Workshop
We want to make every neighborhood bikable for all ability levels. Renee Callaway, Madison Pedestrian Bicycle Administrator, is ready to bike and talk about how to make it easier, safer, and more fun to get around on the south side. Connected with the update to the South Madison Plan, this is a way to show city staff the best and not so great places to get to on bike. Bring your bike as there will be a group ride to start the day. If you prefer not to bike with the group join the workshop at 2:30pm back at the Goodman South Library.  Inside if weather is uncooperative. Sat, Sept 28, 1 – 3:30pm
