2015 State of the Downtown

The 2015 State of the Downtown took place on Tuesday, September 29th at the Overture Center for the Arts. The event featured the release of the 2015 State of the Downtown metrics report, an overview of key issues and opportunities for downtown Madison by DMI President, Susan Schmitz and remarks by City of Madison Common Council President and District 16 Alder, Denise DeMarb.

The State of the Downtown is an effort that was initiated in 2010 to create an annual benchmarking report that provides timely, objective and accurate data about downtown Madison. The metrics in the report focus on aspects of downtown living, working, shopping, playing, moving and sustainability. The report is used to better understand the current state of our downtown and to help determine priorities and actions items needed to maintain and enhance the health and vitality of our central city.

The State of the Downtown reports can be viewed here:
