Emerson East – Eken Park - Yahara Neighborhood Plan Update

The City of Madison works with neighborhoods throughout the community to prepare neighborhood plans. In 1998, the City adopted the Emerson East – Eken Park (EEEP) Neighborhood Plan. The City, neighborhoods, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders have helped implement many of the 1998 plan recommendations over the past 16 years. The current neighborhood leadership, alders and City have determined that it is time to revisit and update the neighborhood plan.

The updated EEEPY Neighborhood Plan will be an advisory document for policymakers, municipal agencies, community groups and others who will initiate, direct, and manage decisions over the next 10 years concerning a number of topics that include, but are not limited to housing; transportation; utilities and community facilities; agricultural, natural and cultural resources; economic development; intergovernmental cooperation; and land use. The plan will include an existing conditions profile; neighborhood issues, opportunities and assets; a vision statement; goals and recommendations; and an implementation plan. The implementation plan will include the lead organizations, action steps and cost estimates to realize the plan's goals and recommendations.

Project Team
A City appointed Emerson East – Eken Park Steering Committee is leading the planning process. The City of Madison Planning Division administers the process through a Project Team.

Outreach and Engagement

Elected officials, city staff, business owners, neighborhood leaders, and other stakeholders are invited to help identify issues, develop strategies, problem solve, and review and comment on plan drafts. Steering Committee meetings are open to the public, and the public will be invited to participate in two Public Open Houses during the process and to join plan implementation efforts.
