Since we are not able to hold an in-person public workshop, this site will walk you through a virtual open house for the Madison Master Plan! The virtual open house is designed to allow you to view materials and provide input. This virtual open house will be available for two full weeks, from May 11 to May 31. 

Office Hours: If you find that you need help navigating the site, you can register for an office hour session. Once you have registered, please remember the date/time of the session that you signed up for, and join the session using the Zoom link (listed on the Welcome Tab) at the scheduled time. You can join the office hours anytime during the hour.

    What is a Master Plan? 

    • Guides the use of lands to protect public health & safety and promote general welfare.
    • Equal parts an aspirational vision and practical response to land development challenges.
    • NOT a prescription, a formula, or a zoning ordinance, but will include recommendations to regulatory approaches, including zoning. 
    • NJ Municipal Land Use Law (MLUL) requires all municipalities have a Master Plan.


    The Master Plan is an opportunity to address current challenges & opportunities and create a vision to guide Madison for the next 20-30 years.


    Why now?

    • The previous Master Plan was finalized in 1992, ~30 years ago.
    • Demographic changes, resiliency and sustainability, smart growth, Complete Streets, e-commerce, smart city technology, resiliency and placemaking have shifted the terrain of local planning.​
