Steve Steinhoff from the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission will present information on " A Greater Madison Vision", an initiative to develop a shared vision and plan for how the region grows in the next 2-3 decades. It is guided by a 40+ member Steering Committee of leaders from the public and private sectors. The Capital Area Regional Planning Commission provides staffing support as part of its statutory charge to prepare and adopt a master plan for the physical development of the region. The presentation will also cover outcomes from the "A Greater Madison Vision" values survey, their current public participation efforts and how they relate to Imagine Madison, the upcoming scenario planning process, and their desired outcomes for the initiative.
