WHEREAS, the Comprehensive Plan provides policy direction framework for more detailed subarea plans and recommends concentrating the highest intensity development along transit corridors including near current transfer points and future Bus Rapid Transit corridors; and

WHEREAS, the Parks and Open Space Plan (2018) identified the Oscar Mayer area to be well served by existing community parks but deficient in smaller neighborhood parks; and

WHEREAS, the Oscar Mayer Strategic Assessment was adopted by the Common Council in February 2019 after an extensive public outreach effort, and includes a redevelopment vision and objectives with primary themes of economic development, transit, equity, housing, and sustainability; and

 

WHEREAS, the Oscar Mayer Special Area Plan process included a significant public engagement opportunities, including the Key Constituency Advisory Group aimed at understanding perspectives of under-represented populations and more than 20 meetings, events and presentations with more than 600 total participants; and

 

WHEREAS, the Oscar Mayer Special Area Plan (the Plan) establishes a framework to achieve the visions and objectives found in the Oscar Mayer Strategic Assessment, Comprehensive Plan and Parks and Open Space Plan; and

 

WHEREAS, the Plan allows for and supports a diverse range of employment uses, housing types and open space types to create an authentic and welcoming district where all of Madison’s residents and visitors feel comfortable; and

 

WHEREAS, the Plan leverages and supports current and future transit investments and bicycle network planning to reduce dependency on personal vehicles; and

 

WHEREAS, the Plan envisions a more interconnected and walkable district, with smaller block sizes, improved linkages to surrounding neighborhoods and a focus on creating streets for people; and

 

WHEREAS, the Plan protects sensitive natural areas and encourages sustainable develop and innovative stormwater management strategies; and

 

WHEREAS, the Plan includes recommendations for sustained investment in the area.
