Madison Master Plan

Welcome to the Madison Master Plan website! The Borough of Madison is embarking on a visioning process for a new Master Plan that tackles the challenges and opportunities for future growth, development, and preservation in a rapidly changing world. The Master Plan sets forth the land use policy of the Borough and serves as the framework for the community’s vision based on the synthesis of a wide range of information. The previous Master Plan was finalized in 1992, almost 30 years ago. Since that time, e-commerce, real-estate investment structures, micro-mobility, cellular technology, resiliency, complete streets, and placemaking have all shifted the terrain of local planning. The current process is an opportunity to bring contemporary land use planning concepts and approaches into focus to refine Madison’s trajectory.

 

A robust community-engagement process is planned over the coming months to inform the plan’s goals, objectives, policies, and recommendations. Surveys are one of a number of outreach tools that will be used as part of the outreach efforts. Please take the survey posted here to contribute to this process. In addition to the online survey, you will find a project timeline, related project documents, future public workshop dates, and other information and updates about the Master Plan.

 

Please join us to envision the future of Madison! 

If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
