Downtown Plan

What is it?

On Tuesday, July 17th, 2012 the City of Madison Common Council officially approved a new City of Madison Downtown Plan. The Downtown Plan provides recommendations on development, land use, transportation infrastructure and activities specific to downtown and as it connects to the City of Madison. To learn more and view a copy of the Downtown Plan, click here.

Why is it Important?

The Downtown Plan is a legal document that provides a definitive guideline for the future land use and development of downtown Madison. The City of Madison Common Council and the Planning Department will refer to the plan when making decisions on development projects in the downtown. The Downtown Plan also effects the Zoning Code for the isthmus area.

What was DMI's Role?

DMI played an integral role in developing the Downtown Plan by working with city staff, officials, planning professionals and committee members. Specifically, DMI worked with a group of Downtown Real Estate Professionals (DTREP) and Downtown Design Professionals (DDP) to assess the downtown in terms of design, density, flow and process. DMI is very pleased that many of our recommendations were included in the final Downtown Plan. We now have an approved plan that will help guide and shape the development and design of our downtown for many years to come.
