The City Needs Your Input
The City of Madison is currently updating its comprehensive plan — a document that will guide how the city is physically shaped in the coming decades and how the people living here will experience their city. And your input is needed! City staff are very interested in hearing from UW students, and the easiest way to offer your thoughts is to take this interactive survey.
Want to get even more involved? Volunteers are needed to work with the city’s Planning Division to engage community members in the Imagine Madison project. To volunteer, please email Ana Arellano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
