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.​
