Future Land Use

Future Land Use for Proposed Development Site

2018 Comprehensive Plan (Imagine Madison)
Helps determines use, density, height, and type of development.

Regional Mixed Use (RMU):

  • Intensive mix of region-serving retail, office, service, entertainment, civic, institutional, and high density residential uses
  • Mapped close to the junctions of major streets, along major roads, close to highway interchanges, and along existing and planned high frequency/ high capacity public transit routes.
  • Urban environment characterized by a pedestrian friendly public street network and buildings placed close to the sidewalk and street
  • Parking should be located behind buildings, underground, in parking structures; on street parking is desirable where possible

Zoning

Traditional Shopping Street (TSS) District Recommendations:

The TSS District is established to encourage and sustain the viability of Madison’s mixed-use corridors, which sustain many of the City’s traditional neighborhoods.

  • Encourage pedestrian, bicycle and transit use.
  • Encourage diversification of uses, including residential, commercial, and civic uses, in order to enhance the vitality and appeal of these areas.
  • Maintain the viability of existing residential buildings located within or adjacent to these corridors.
  • Encourage appropriate transitions between higher-intensity uses within TSS districts and adjacent lower-density residential districts.
