Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: The University Hill Farms neighborhood is located on Madison’s near west side, bounded on the north by Regent Street and Sheboygan Avenue, on the south by Mineral Point Road, on the east by Segoe Road, and on the west by Rosa Road and North Whitney Way. The Hill Farms Neighborhood encompasses two parks, and is served by two elementary schools, one middle school, several churches, the Hilldale shopping center, including the Sundance movie theatre, and the Hill Farms State Office building. Just minutes by car from the University, downtown, and beltline, the University Hill Farms neighborhood is situated in a desirable and convenient location. The University Hill Farms neighborhood was developed as a complete community, including residential housing, schools, parks, churches, shopping, and office space on 487 acres of land formerly owned by the University of Wisconsin. The state legislature authorized the sale of the land in 1953 and appointed a special committee to oversee its development. The University of Wisconsin and its Regents, in conjunction with the city of Madison and planning consultant Carl L. Gardner and associates, created a plan to fulfill the original vision of an integrated, walkable neighborhood.
