Track 1

All of the proposed Track 1 Comprehensive Plan map amendments were adopted by the Madison Common Council at their May 17, 2011 meeting (Ordinance ID No. 21853), following a May 2, 2011 recommendation by the Madison Plan Commission (Resolution ID No. 22283). The list of adopted amendments is identical to the final list of Potential Comprehensive Plan Map Amendments Accepted for Evaluation and Consideration approved by the Plan Commission at their March 7, 2011 meeting.

Track 1 consisted of proposed amendments that either corrected an error or omission in the adopted plan, or that were recommended in other City plans adopted or amended since January 2006. Because the Track 1 amendments were based on previous planning approvals and followed a process that included public participation in developing the recommendations, they were considered separately from, and ahead of, the Track 2 amendments that were requested by prospective developers or others to accommodate a specific proposed project or land use that would not be consist with the current Comprehensive Plan. More detailed information on the Comprehensive Plan review process and the types of potential amendments is found in the paper titled Process for Considering Limited Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan.

The Generalized Future Land Use Plan Maps and Map Notes in Volume II, Chapter 2, of the Comprehensive Plan will be revised as to incorporate the adopted Track 1 amendments as soon as the updated maps are prepared.

The complete list of Track 1 map amendments is presented in the table below for reference. Please note that you may also click on the list of headings to jump to that section of the table; and that each amendment is linked to a locator map indicated in the left hand column of the table.

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENTS TO CORRECT OMISSIONS OR TECHNICAL ERRORS ON THE GENERALIZED FUTURE LAND USE PLAN MAP AS ADOPTED IN JANUARY 2006

Missing Land Use Designation

Map Key No. Location Proposed LU Change Reason for Proposed Amendment Comments
A-1 Area north of Mineral Point Road just west of Pleasant View Road
Designation to E district
To correct a mapping error in the adopted Comprehensive Plan. This area currently is missing a land use designation This area had an Employment land use designation on the May 2005 draft of the Generalized Future Land Use Plan Map.
A-2 Area southwest of Junction Road/Harbor Town Drive intersections
Designation to CMU district
To correct a mapping error in the adopted Comprehensive Plan. This area currently is missing a land use designation This area had an Community Mixed Use land use designation on the May 2005 draft of the Generalized Future Land Use Plan Map.
B Area at Lakeside Street west of John Nolen Drive in the Bay Creek Neighborhood
Designation to E district
To correct a mapping error in the adopted Comprehensive Plan. This area currently is missing a land use designation This area had an Employment land use designation on the May 2005 draft of the Generalized Future Land Use Plan Map.
         

Incorrect Land Use Designation

Map Key No. Location Proposed LU Change Reason for Proposed Amendment Comments
C Parcel on east side of 733 CTH M just north of Applewood
SI to LDR
To correct a mapping error in the adopted Comprehensive Plan. This vacant parcel is not a part of the Holy Name property and the designation of Special Institutional was an error.
This error was carried over from the 1977 Madison Land Use Plan, which also showed the property as SI.
D Several residential properties located east of Dempsey Road at Davidson Street
E to LDR

To correct a mapping error in the adopted Comprehensive Plan. These existing residential properties are south of the Cottage Grove Road business district, and the designation of E was an error.

Lands adjacent to the west and south are designated LDR. The Royster-Clark SAP recommends changing the adjacent lands to the north and east from E to NMU and SI, respectively.
E Several block residential area located generally north of Commercial Avenue and northwest of N. Thompson Drive
MDR to LDR
To more accurately reflect the predominantly low-density character of this portion of an established neighborhood. Except for a few parcels in the westernmost half block, existing net density in this area ranges from about 3 to about 14 units per acre. No current plan recommends increased densities in the residential portions of this neighborhood.
F-1 Area west of Milwaukee Street extended, just south of Interstate Highway 94
E to P
To reflect the revised final alignment of the planned Milwaukee Street extension, which will cross beneath the Interstate to provide a connection to the Northeast Neighborhoods. Wetlands exist immediately east of the planned roadway, and no development east of the road is intended.
F-2 Area east of the back lot line of the east frontage of East Hill Parkway between Littlemore Drive and Stockbridge Drive
LDR to MDR
To more accurately reflect the approved and planned densities and housing types in this portion of the neighborhood.  
F-3 Small area north of Cottage Grove Road
LDR to P
To be consistent with the adopted Sprecher Neighborhood Development Plan, which recommends open space uses. The Sprecher NDP recognizes two existing residential uses in this area by mapping a small Low Density Residential land use circle on each site. This construct indicates that expansion of these uses and a larger development area is not intended. These isolated existing uses are generally not shown on the Comprehensive Plan maps.

To reflect the platted street pattern and the actual Olson Elementary School site, which also encompasses an area of recreational open space.

As noted in the footnote to this page, the exact alignment of streets and pattern of land uses and densities recommended in the Neighborhood Development Plans for peripheral areas are almost always modified to some degree as individual and subdivisions and development projects are approved over an extended period of time.

While these types of relatively minor adjustments are considered consistent with both the Neighborhood Development Plan and the Comprehensive Plan and do not require a Comp Plan amendment, a corresponding update to the Comprehensive Plan is warranted in some cases to maintain map clarity.

T-3 South portion of the Mid-Town Neighborhood  north and south of Mid-Town Road near Hawks Landing Circle

LDR to MDR
and
MDR to LDR

To reflect modifications to the pattern of residential densities in this area established through development approvals.

As noted in the footnote to this page, the exact alignment of streets and pattern of land uses and densities recommended in the Neighborhood Development Plans for peripheral areas are almost always modified to some degree as individual and subdivisions and development projects are approved over an extended period of time.

While these types of relatively minor adjustments are considered consistent with both the Neighborhood Development Plan and the Comprehensive Plan and do not require a Comp Plan amendment, a corresponding update to the Comprehensive Plan is warranted in some cases to maintain map clarity.

Northport-Warner Park-Sherman Neighborhood Plan

Map Key No. Location Proposed LU Change Reason for Proposed Amendment Comments
No Map

Site north of Nakoosa Trail and east of

Stoughton Road (USH 51)
Amend the GC district description to encompass residential uses in some situations
To apply a land use designation to the site that is more consistent with the Porchlight residential project. The Common Council, after a favorable recommendation from the Plan Commission, agreed to sell the property to Porchlight for residential housing. On further review, Planning Division staff believe that the current General Commercial district description adequately acknowledges that limited residential uses within the district may be appropriate in some situations, and that no text amendment is necessary.

*Note: Neighborhood Development Plans provide detailed land use and street plan recommendations for areas that are comprised predominantly of agricultural and undeveloped land with few existing roadways at the time of initial plan adoption. The recommendations in adopted Neighborhood Development Plans are also reflected in the Comprehensive Plan Generalized Future Land Use Plan Map---although the land use categories are broader and the scale is less-fine. The exact alignment of planned new streets and the specific pattern of land uses and densities recommended in the plans for new peripheral neighborhoods are almost always modified to some degree as individual subdivisions and development proposals are approved over an extended period of time. These approvals are recognized as minor revisions to the neighborhood development plan if consistent with the overall objectives of the plan. These types of minor adjustments are also considered consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and do not require a Comprehensive Plan amendment, although a corresponding update to the Generalized Future Land Use Plan Map may sometimes be warranted to maintain map clarity.
