Emerson East – Eken Park - Yahara Neighborhood Plan Update
The City of Madison works with neighborhoods throughout the community to prepare neighborhood plans. In 1998, the City adopted the Emerson East – Eken Park (EEEP) Neighborhood Plan. The City, neighborhoods, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders have helped implement many of the 1998 plan recommendations over the past 15 years. The current neighborhood leadership, alders and City have determined that it is time to revisit and update the neighborhood plan.
About 50 people participated in Open House I! Thanks to everyone that came and shared their ideas, comments and questions. You may read a compilation of input by topic, by clicking on the following links:
