The Historic Preservation Plan

The City of Madison adopted its first historic preservation ordinance and created the Landmarks Commission in 1970. Since that time, the City has designated 182 landmarks and 5 local historic districts. In July 2015, the Common Council unanimously adopted the first major revision to the ordinance in 40 years. Now, the City would like to broaden its efforts beyond the traditional regulatory focus to a more dynamic and complete approach.
