YES TO PEOPLE
YES TO HOUSING
YES IN MY BACK YARD

We want Madison to be a welcoming community where everyone can thrive.

We are a group of Madison neighbors who advocate for
more housing

We are residents of Madison, who value our neighbors, our city, and our environment. We are working to make housing more affordable, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and end homelessness in Madison. That’s why we say yes to more housing in our city.

What we stand for

Our three main goals are:

  1. Provide stability for all residents by increasing the supply of housing, including social and affordable housing

  2. Decrease the amount of greenhouse gas emissions generated in Madison by reducing sprawl

  3. Make Madison an affordable place to work, live, and run a business by increasing density and streamlining the planning and approval process

We want a more affordable and sustainable Madison

We see friends, family, and coworkers priced out of our area. We see sprawl consume acres of farmland and wilderness and spur an increase in traffic congestion. We also see an alternative: Madison as an affordable and inclusive community. We can make Madison a place with homes for all, where car ownership is not a requirement, and where new residents are welcome.
