The city of Madison is asking for your input on how to improve James Madison Park.

The city hosted the first public input meeting for the park’s master plan and shelter design at the Madison Central Library Wednesday night. Officials looked at some of the current conditions and history behind the park, and asked people what they want to see in the future.

“For the existing shelter, we’re kind of reimagining what that could possibly be — whether it could be a place where you really engage the community or have programming there, or whether it’s more of a reservable space,” city of Madison architect Sarah Lerner said.

There’s an online survey available, as well as three more meetings. The next meeting will be on Feb. 10.

The city is hoping to draft the plans in early summer and have a final plan by fall.
