Common Wealth Southwest Madison Community Survey

The linked, 10-minute survey was designed to help gather community input from those who live, work, or spend time in the Southwest Madison area. This community has received federal funding from the Innovations in Community Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) program. The focus of this program is using three program pillars (supporting families, increasing guardianship, and community policing) to reduce crime and the conditions that contribute to crime. The information gathered from the survey will assist those implementing this grant (Common Wealth Development, City of Madison, and a Community Advisory Committee consisting of residents and community organizations) shape future work in this area.
