Safety

Downtown Madison is critically important to our community, both as our central business district and the principal destination for visitors of our region. DMI firmly believes that our leaders and the community have the capacity and resources to keep downtown Madison safe for all residents, workers and visitors. The central city should be a place that no matter what time of the day, everyone feels safe and welcome.

DMI has and continues to work closely with City of Madison and UW-Madison law enforcement, as well as community groups and local officials on strategies to increase public safety in downtown Madison. Issues and initiatives have included supporting the Downtown Safety Initiative, assisting with the positive transformation of Halloween on State Street, working to use placemaking principles to maintain and improve the safety of public places in downtown, advocating for the City of Madison Panhandling Ordinance and leading the redesign of Lisa Link Peace Park.
