Body
WHEREAS the CDBG Committee and the Community Development Division have traditionally partnered with the Plan Commission and the Planning Division to identify eligible areas with opportunities where a neighborhood planning process could effectively guide future City and community activities;
 
WHEREAS the Community Development Division has historically supported such a planning process with funds for neighborhood planning and for implementation of projects that address the completed plan's priority goals and opportunities; and
 
WHEREAS the City of Madison's Comprehensive Plan adopted January 17, 2006 provides general goals, objectives, policies and implementation recommendations and generalized land use maps to guide the future growth and development of the City; and
 
WHEREAS the City of Madison's Comprehensive Plan recommends the preparation of neighborhood plans for established residential neighborhoods to provide greater detail on specific land uses, development intensity, and design characteristics that are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, or to propose amendments to the Plan; and
 
WHEREAS the proposed planning study area is depicted on the attached map and includes a portion of Census Tract 20 in the Schenk-Atwood-Starkweather-Yahara and Worthington Park neighborhoods; and
