The 2019 Great Pumpkin Purge!

The Pumpkin Purge is a pumpkin composting event that helps to raise awareness about organic waste reduction and gets residents of all ages involved. Residents are invited to bring old pumpkins, gourds, and jack o’ lanterns for composting, rather than sending them to local landfills. Residents are invited to play pumpkin-themed games and enter to win raffle prizes from local vendors, such as certificates to local bakeries or environmentally-themed prize items

2020-2024 Consolidated Plan Community Need Survey

Madison County Community Development is conducting a survey of citizens to identify community needs and priorities for the expenditure of federal funds to low-income families, households and neighborhoods. The survey results will be a tool used to develop the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, a strategic plan that prioritizes the expenditure of how funds will be allocated in each Annual Action Plan. Please help us by ranking the following priorities as low or high, and selecting your community's highest priorities for services and need. Please add any additional needs not listed on the survey where indicated.

The Draft of the New Comprehensive Plan (edited for corrections) can be found herePlease visit the Comprehensive Plan Update page for more information. If you have any questions or comments regarding the draft plan, please email
