Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan

Welcome to the website for the Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan, which was adopted by the Madison Common Council in March 2008.

The Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan was prepared by the City of Madison to help guide future urban development within a planning area located generally east of Interstate Highway 39-90-94 and northwest of The American Center (see Planning Area map below). The plan makes detailed recommendations regarding future land uses and urban design; the future transportation network (including roadways and pedestrian-bicycle facilities); open space preservation; stormwater management and water quality protection; and extension of the full range of urban services, including public sanitary sewer and water service, police and fire protection, and transit. The plan will be a primary basis for the review of future specific development proposals in the Pumpkin Hollow neighborhood.

This website includes the complete adopted plan, as well as a record of the planning process---including the background information and preliminary concept plans presented at the three public meetings held in the neighborhood; the text and maps from the October 2007 review draft plan; copies of all of the comments received on the draft plan and the Planning Division staff response to those comments; and the revisions to the draft plan recommended by the Madison Plan Commission.

If you have any questions about the Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan or any of the other information on this website, please contact the project staff at the addresses listed at the end of the site.


Pumpkin Hollow
Planning Area

The planning area for the Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan is generally bounded by Interstate Highway 39-90-94 on the west, State Highway 19 on the north, Rattman Road on the east, and The American Center on the south. The planning area includes some lands that will become part of Sun Prairie rather than the City of Madison under the terms of the Town of Burke, Village of Deforest, City of Sun Prairie and City of Madison Cooperative Plan because it is important that planning for future development throughout the planning area be carefully coordinated, regardless of ultimate municipal jurisdiction. The Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan makes specific recommendations for lands that will become part of the City of Madison.


Pumpkin Hollow CARPC Application and Approval

On March 12, 2009, the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (CARPC) conditionally approved an amendment to the Central Urban Service Area to include lands in the southern portion of the Pumpkin Hollow neighborhood.

Overview of the Pumpkin Hollow Planning Process - Past Activities


The Pumpkin Hollow planning process began in late 2006, and continued through the fall of 2007. During the process, project staff met with many property owners and residents in the planning area, as well as other planning agencies and officials from adjacent communities. Three neighborhood public meetings were held at the Burke Lutheran Church to present background information, learn about community concerns and preferences, discuss preliminary concept plans, and present draft recommendations. In October 2007, the review draft of the neighborhood development plan was released for public discussion and comment, and a resolution adopting the Pumpkin Hollow Neighborhood Development Plan as a supplement to the City of Madison Comprehensive Plan was introduced to the Common Council and referred to the Park Commission, Long-Range Transportation Planning Committee and Plan Commission for their recommendation. After reviewing all of the comments submitted on the draft plan and considering the recommendations of the reviewing commissions, the Madison Common Council adopted the plan on March 18, 2008.

Copies of the most important information prepared by staff or submitted by the public during the Pumpkin Hollow neighborhood planning process are found below. Please note that the most recent steps in the process are listed first.
