Regional Development Plan Update

A Greater Madison Vision laid the groundwork for updating the Regional Development Plan by building awareness and support among leaders and stakeholders for the importance of a plan for how we grow, raising awareness of possible future growth scenarios, and identifying public values and priorities for regional development.

Drawing on public priorities identified during the AGMV process, CARPC established draft goals and objectives for regional development. A survey soliciting feedback on the draft goals and objectives was sent to local government officials in the fall of 2019. The results of this survey demonstrated widespread agreement that the Regional Development Plan should focus on:

  1. Fostering community resilience to climate change
  2. Increasing access to jobs, housing and services for all people
  3. Conserving farmland, water resources, and natural areas

In the coming months, CARPC will work with key partners and stakeholders to finalize these goals along with related objectives and indicators to measure our progress toward achieving them. Additional steps for preparing the Regional Development Plan will be:

  1. Preparing and adopting a participation plan: Completed April 2020
  2. Assessing growth trends and influences
  3. Exploring growth concepts
  4. Preparing draft and final plans
