Imagine Madison Comprehensive Plan Update

The city's year-long update to our Comprehensive Plan is nearing completion. The process, known as Imagine Madison, is now pulling together the results of focus groups, online surveys, and community discussions. 

Over the course of the next few months, different elements of the draft plan will be made available to the public at the Imagine Madison website. Comprehensive Plans are designed to be a twenty-year future view and must be updated every ten years.

The Common Council is next expected to adopt the plan until August 2018. This would be the official and final adoption of the Plan. As of now, any part of the plan is a draft for discussion and review. 

Recently the staff has unveiled "Draft Future Land Use" concepts which has stimulated much discussion. 

First, again, these are all drafts and will not be finalized until August. Second, this is not a Zoning map, no zoning is being changed. 

As part of this planning process, so of the land use terms have changed to either better reflects how we are currently planning the city. In addition, specific areas have refined land use based upon redevelopment potential patterns.

While your property might be designated as a new land use, keep in mind this does not change how you currently use the property. You will continue to be able to use the property as you have now well into the future. It only changes what the city would perceive to be appropriate if there were a potential future redevelopment of the land.

If you have a concern or question about this or any part of Imagine Madison I encourage you to directly contact the city staff who are collecting the information and making recommendations to the Plan Commission and Common Council. A list of ways to contact staff is available on the Imagine Madison Contacts page.
