Agenda Summary  

Background Information on Neighborhood Conservation Districts
In 2007, the Madison Common Council adopted an ordinance amending the Zoning Code to establish a multi-step process for creating neighborhood conservation districts as one approach that can be used to preserve the unique physical characteristics of sub-areas within the city. If supported by area residents and property owners and adopted by the Common Council, a neighborhood conservation district is an overlay zoning district that provides additional regulations designed to ensure that future property improvements and redevelopment maintain the essential physical characteristics determined to be important to the area’s unique identity.

Currently, no neighborhood conservation districts have been created in the City of Madison, but several adopted City plans, including the Marquette-Schenk Atwood Neighborhood Plan and the East Rail Corridor Plan, recommend consideration of a neighborhood conservation district in the East Wilson Street/Schley Pass/Dewey Court area. The steps in the process for considering the creation of a NCD are summarized below, beginning with a formal request for consideration by a resident of the proposed NCD area. Links are provided to materials related to the steps that have been completed to date for the East Wilson Street/Schley Pass/Dewey Court area.
