MADISON – A series of community meetings and workshops continue today after getting underway yesterday. The Madison on Track 2045 initiative has scheduled Community Vision Workshops this week and other meetings through Friday, focusing on developing a comprehensive plan for the city.

Madison on Track 2045 involves community-based planning to shape Madison’s future by updating the city’s Comprehensive Plan, which will be used as a policy document by city leaders, developers, business owners and citizens to make decisions about future growth, development, policy and capital improvements.

Community Vision Workshops on July 26-27 have been planned in three different locations, and all will have the same agenda. Interactive discussion will include a series of exercises to help the community begin to envision ways that Madison will evolve, based on existing conditions, growth trends and future projections. All ages welcome.

Yesterday, a workshop was held at city hall and one at Toyota Field. The third is scheduled for this evening at Insanity Skate Park. It will be held in the complex’s VIP Room, 100 Skate Park Drive, 5:30 to 7 p.m.

After the workshops, a “Shared Progress Open House” will be held in Council Chambers at City Hall, 100 Hughes Road on Thursday, July 28, 5:30 to 7 p.m. Residents can stop by and visit with project team members for Madison on Track 2045 and “see what progress has been made during planning week in Madison.” (madisonontrack2045.com)

Participants can review feedback from residents during the week’s workshops and provide guidance on the draft vision, planning principles and plan direction. All ages are welcome. The session does not include a formal presentation. Residents can visit at any time during the 90-minute open house.

A “Downtown Madison Farmers’ Market Pop-up Event” is also planned in the Garner Alley between Main and Martin streets on Friday, July 29, 3 to 6 p.m. Visit the farmers’ market to talk to project team members with Madison on Track 2045. See the progress made during planning week.

Participants can review feedback from residents during the week’s workshops and offer guidance on the draft vision, planning principles and plan direction.
