Hoyt Park Area Joint Neighborhood Planning Process
The City of Madison Department of Planning & Community & Economic Development is working with the Rocky Bluff, Sunset Hills, Sunset Village, VanChaMasShe Neighborhood Associations, Hilldale Row Condominium Association, and interested residents, businesses and stakeholders to develop a 5-10 year plan for the Hoyt Park Area Joint Neighborhood Plan study area. Vandewalle & Associates, a private consulting firm based in Madison, WI, is assisting the City and the community to prepare a plan for this near west side area.
The City-Consultant Team started the planning process in September 2011. Three official Open Houses have been conducted to solicit input from the community. In addition, the City-Consultant Team have attended neighborhood-based meetings to listen to input from residents. A business questionnaire, stakeholder interviews, and other information submitted to the City-Consultant has been used to determine the issues, strategies, and draft plan recommendations.
The Final Draft version of the Hoyt Park Area Joint Neighborhood Plan is available. Each of the four neighborhood associations, Rocky Bluff, Sunset Hills, Sunset Village, and VanChaMasShe, will be setting up neighborhood meetings to solicit input on the final draft. The neighborhood associations will prepare a letter detailing community support or opposition to plan content, recommendations, and implementation strategies. Please check with your neighborhood association when a neighborhood-wide meeting is scheduled.
The final step is the adoption of the Hoyt Park Area Joint Neighborhood Plan. The general public is encouraged to provide written comments or register their support/opposition at City Board or Commission meetings in which the Plan will be discussed. A tentative schedule for adoption will be periodically updated so please check the City of Madison Legistar or this site to confirm meeting dates and times.
