MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison's mayor hopes dialogue will help it get ahead of problems before they start.

More than 100 people attended the mayor's annual neighborhood round table Saturday morning.  The event involved community development workshops and panels.

Mayor Dave Cieslewicz was especially excited about a new database system called Neighborhood Indicators.

It works as a red flag of sorts to allow the city and residents to anticipate and deal with potential problems.

"We don't want to develop another situation like we had on Allied Drive," said Cieslewicz.  "It's very expensive to fix throse problems once they get to that point, and the idea behind Neighborhood Indicators is to make sure that no neighborhood gets to that point again in the future."

The mayor said the database will include about seventy different neighborhoods in the city by the end of next year.
