The Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood Association (DMNA) represents about 1,500 households in the residential and business area along Monroe Street, in the near-west side of Madison. DMNA was established in 1973.

SJC will identify social justice issues which have an impact on or in our neighborhood, and by extension our city and the world around us. Additionally, SJC will provide information and options for advocacy and/or action to the DMNA Council and to the broader community. 

Monroe Street Reconstruction Planning Process Meeting

Monroe Street Reconstruction Planning Process Meeting

When: 6:30-8:30 pm, Wednesday, March 9

Where: Edgewood College Washburn Heritage Room


Monroe Street Reconstruction

Monroe Street is scheduled for reconstruction in 2018.  $150,000 of pedestrian safety improvements are planned for 2016, with an anticipated $9,000,000 for reconstruction in 2018.  Given that every Dudgeon Monroe resident lives within a few blocks of Monroe Street, the reconstruction is a legacy project of vital importance to our neighborhood.  It provides us with a real opportunity to re-imagine Monroe Street. How might this street, the heart of our neighborhood, be redesigned?
