What makes a great city?

What do you love about Fitchburg? Perhaps it's the beauty of the gardens and trees that grace its neighborhoods? Is it the proximity to all the cultural and job opportunities that Dane County has to offer? Do you enjoy being close to rural landscapes while living in a suburban or urban neighborhood? Maybe it’s the many great parks or the new library?

What would you do to preserve what you love about Fitchburg? Would you write letters, visit your alders and mayor, or come to a meeting to express your opinion? We hope you'll find the information in this brochure motivating, and that you'll take action to preserve a high quality of life and reasonable tax rates.
