Town Strategic Plan Survey
We are very excited to announce the launch of our Strategic Plan Survey! Your voice is a very important part of this strategic planning process, and your unique perspective and feedback will help shape the future of the Town of Madison. Please take the Strategic Plan survey at your convenience – it will be open until June 15. It’s a short, 10-minute survey so you can tell us what you think.

Beach parking stickers for residents are now available for purchase online, through the mail, or in person at the Beach & Rec office at the Surf Club. A reminder that parking stickers or daily parking passes will be required at all three Town beaches starting Memorial Day on weekends only, and seven days a week starting on Monday, June 19th through Labor Day. Gate guards and lifeguards will only be staffed on weekends through mid-June due to limited staffing availability. Please visit the Town website for more information on pricing and ways to purchase a sticker.

The Geographic Information System (GIS) provides access to geographic and tax record information maintained by the Town of Madison, Connecticut and CAI Technologies.
