Workshops, open house start this week for Madison on Track 2045

MADISON – The Madison on Track 2045 initiative has scheduled Community Vision Workshops and follow-up meetings for residents on July 25-29.

Madison on Track 2045 involves community-based planning to shape Madison’s future by updating the city’s Comprehensive Plan.

A week of intensive community planning has been scheduled for July 25-29. Residents can attend one of three community workshops, stop in at an open house or visit at the downtown farmers’ market to share ideas, reflect on input and provide feedback on plan direction.

Community Vision Workshops on July 26-27 held in three different locations will have the same agenda.
