DRAFT Old University Avenue Design & Development Guidelines (October 2007)
In 2007, the Regent Neighborhood Association received a city-funded grant to hire a planning consulting firm to prepare design guidelines for the Old University Avenue Corridor.  Working with a consultant, a preliminary plan was prepared which focused on design guidelines for the corridor. During the final stages of putting the Plan together, it was determined that more neighborhood-based discussion was necessary to ensure the vision, value, and design for the corridor was supported by Regent Neighborhood and the business community.  The draft plan was never introduced to the Madison Common Council for adoption.
