Save-the-date: 2017 State of the Downtown - September 20, 7:30-9am, Overture Center

2016 State of the Downtown

The 2016 State of the Downtown took place on Wednesday, September 21st at the Overture Center for the Arts. The event featured the release of the 2016 State of the Downtown metrics report and a panel discussion on major downtown issues and opportunities moderated by Isthmus and featuring the following panelists: Mike Verveer, City of Madison Council President and District 4 Alder, Tiffany Kenney, Executive Director of Madison’s Central Business Improvement District, Jeff Vercauteren, President of Capitol Neighborhoods, Inc. and Susan Schmitz, President of DMI.

The State of the Downtown started in 2010 as an effort to create an annual benchmarking report to provide timely, objective and accurate data about downtown Madison. The metrics in the report focus on aspects of downtown development and investment, housing, residents, quality of life and safety, office market, workforce, education, retail and restaurants, tourism and attractions, mobility and sustainability. The report is used to better understand the current state of our downtown and to help determine priorities and actions steps to sustain and grow a healthy and vital central city.

Current and past State of the Downtown reports can be viewed below. For optimal viewing, use Internet Explorer or Chrome.
