New Campus Master Plan will help streamline projects

For the first time in its 169-year history, the University of Wisconsin–Madison has a Campus Master Plan approved by the City of Madison Common Council. This approval shifts the majority of campus zoning from residential, commercial or manufacturing to “Campus-Institutional (C-I)” zoning. The master plan also allows the university to streamline its local entitlement process, saving six to nine months of development time. Each new university capital project — whether it be a new building, renovation or addition — will take less time and cost less money.
