West Area Plan

The City of Madison invites you to join us as we create the West Area Plan! We’ll work with residents, community organizations, neighborhood associations, businesses and others to chart course of action for the next 10 years.  The Plan will cover land use, transportation, parks and open space, and other elements of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

The West Area and Northeast Area Plans will be the first created under the City’s new Planning Framework, which was adopted by the Common Council on August 2, 2022. With the new framework approach, the Planning Division will create 12 Area Plans over the next 8 to 10 years that will cover the entire City. With a timeline for covering the City and a consistent set of topics to be addressed, this approach will also ensure that people who have traditionally been underrepresented in planning processes will receive services, leading to greater equity in planning across the City.

The Planning Division will provide an introductory overview of the West Area Plan process at the December 12th Plan Commission meeting. There will be more formal Plan kickoff meetings in early 2023. Check back here for the date, time and location.
