Census: Dane County leads state in population growth; more than double any other county in Wisconsin.  (, 4/18/2019)
While much of that growth has occurred in suburban communities like Sun Prairie, Middleton and Verona, Madison’s urban center has not been left behind, Violante said. “Madison is interesting in that it’s seeing both a degree of peripheral growth … and the Isthmus growth that we’re seeing is unprecedented.” 
While growth is good for increasing the tax base and securing more state funding for schools, Adam Sayre, director of planning and interim city administrator for Verona, said it also creates challenges — such as transportation.
