Hoyt Park Area Joint Neighborhood Planning Process

The City of Madison Department of Planning & Community & Economic Development worked 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, assisted 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 has 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.
