Domain: Outdoor Spaces and Buildings Goal: To maximize the use and safety of Madison's outdoor spaces and buildings.
Madison has an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities and in the near future development and promotion of trails, paddling and seasonal programs will expand, Madison's downtown and municipal infrastructure is very old and pre-dates ADA requirements. A long-term capital plan will include renovations to allow for greater success.
Some of the resources that are very important to citizens taking a selected survey are not as available as they could be which can be improved in the near future. Some of these resources include recreation, fitness, and wellness for older folks, crosswalks with audio/visual signs, well-lit safe intersections for walkers, bikers, and drivers, well maintained, accessible public restrooms, separate pathways for bicyclists and pedestrians, well-maintained public buildings that are easy to get into, and a community policing or neighbor hood watch program.
