We want to strengthen community relationships and partner on decision-making.  

The Dane County Board of Supervisors has embarked on an initiative - “Engage Dane”- to make inclusive engagement foundational to Dane County government. Over the past five years, the Dane County Board has prioritized equity as key to informed and responsible decision making.

The Engage Dane initiative builds on this work and paves a clear path forward between the community and county government, providing for robust and meaningful discussion and partnership on the important issues facing the county. 

March 2019 - the Board has finished its work on the Engage Dane materials and will begin to use the framework that has been built for this initiative.  The resources that have been compiled thus far are availalble below.
