Snacks and childcare opportunities will be provided.

Dear Neighbors: 

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?  WHY DOES IT MATTER?

WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN? 

The City of Madison Comprehensive Plan will provide a strategic long-term vision; basic goals, objectives, policies; and recommendations to help guide the City's future growth and development. The Comprehensive Plan represents a focus on planning thought and effort - an attempt to identify and analyze the complex forces, relationships, and dynam-ics of growth in order that they can be shaped and directed in accordance with recognized community goals and aspirations. It is a realistic appraisal of what the community is now, a normative and futuristic blueprint of what the community wants to be, and a specific set of recommendations for achieving community desires.

The Comprehensive Plan is the policy document for the physical, social, and economic growth and redevelopment of the City. As such, the plan influences policy decisions in a broad variety of areas, including, but not limited to the following:

Land use
Transportation
Infrastructure and utilities
Drainage
Environmental conservation Urban reinvestment
Economic development
Recreation and open space Housing.

When adopted, the Comprehensive Plan will be one of the primary tools used by City agencies, the City and Planning Commissions, and other policy bodies to make decisions about the location of land uses and community facilities, priorities for public investment and the extension of public services, business development, and how to meet transporta- tion needs.

Comprehensive planning is also a continuous process and the development of the Plan should be viewed as a dynamic process. Formulation of this text, figures and tables is not the ultimate objective; rather the use of the Plan is what is important. Further, a Comprehensive Plan is only as good as the measures used to implement the plan.

No single document can pose solutions to all community needs, and the Comprehensive Plan must be a flexible, continuous and changing activity that is periodically updated based on changing conditions, the shifting of resources, and the alteration of goals. As such, the City's first General Development Plan was adopted in 1969 and subsequently updated in 1979 and 1996. This latest Comprehensive Plan will not only update the City's profile and reevaluate the City's goals and objectives, but will also develop the necessary information to help the City and its citizens implement their long term vision for their community.
