Master Plan Addendum: The Process

The proposed amendment to the Master Plan has followed and exceeded the City of Madison process as outlined in the City of Madison Zoning Code and Adopted Master Plan. This effort has spanned several years of active dialog including public outreach to the Dudgeon Monroe Neighborhood, Vilas Neighborhood, and Liaison Committee through listening sessions, concept presentations, and neighborhood meetings along with coordination of outreach efforts with former Alder Sarah Eskrich and current Alder Allen Arntsen. Input gathered throughout the process has been integrated into the proposal or addressed through careful study and quantification by experts in lighting, sound, and traffic.
