Greetings to Emerson East, Eken Park and Yahara Area Neighborhoods,

The City of Madison Planning Division has been working since January 2014 with the Mayoral appointed, Emerson East-Eken Park-Yahara Neighborhood Plan Steering Committee to update the Emerson East-Eken Park Neighborhood Plan (adopted in 1998). The Steering Committee is in the process of reviewing draft transportation, community health and wellness, and land use and urban design recommendations for nine focus areas. The City’s webpage includes an overview of the planning process, plan drafts, public input, and meeting minutes with attachments, including conceptual ideas for redevelopment of several focus areas that the Committee, property owners, City staff, and a design consultant have been working on: http://www.cityofmadison.com/planning/eeep.html To access plan drafts, click on the Plan Development agenda number, #32851.

The Steering Committee and City staff will complete the Draft Plan and share it for review and comment at a Public Open House, sometime later in Spring.  Also at this time, the Draft Plan will be circulated widely through libraries, listservs, the City webpage, and other public accessible avenues. Comments will be reviewed and a Final Draft Plan will be prepared.

The Final Draft Plan will be widely circulated for public review, followed with City Committee, Commission and Board review, and adoption as a supplement to the City’s Comprehensive Plan. Plan implementation will take place over 10 to 15 years.
