City of

The City of Madison Department of Planning & Community & Economic Development is working with the University Hill Farms Neighborhood Association (UHFNA) and interested residents, businesses and stakeholders to develop a 5-10 year plan for this west side neighborhood. Through a competitive grant process, UHFNA received a grant to conduct a joint neighborhood planning process to be managed by the Planning Division. Urban Assets and Cunningham Group, a private consulting team, has been selected to provide professional planning services in the preparation of this plan.

Steering Committee

The Mayor, confirmed by the Common Council, has appointed a nine member ad-hoc steering committee to guide the planning process. The steering committee’s role is to guide the planning process, work with the city-consultant team, and solicit input from residents and the business committee. The planning process will take approximately 12 months to complete with regularly scheduled monthly meetings.

The University Hill Farms steering committee hosted the FINAL OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday, June 11. A DRAFT Plan is available for review and comment. Please send email comments to by June 25, 2014. A comment sheet is attached for you to complete and mail to: Jule Stroick, Department of Planning & Community & Economic Development, P.O. Box 2985, Madison, WI 53701-2985.
