Summary cover 592019.JPG

The Planning Commission held a special meeting on May 9, 2019 regarding the Draft Comprehensive Plan. Over 50 residents attended the public forum and after a brief presentation, were provided the opportunity to speak about the Draft Plan.  A Summary of the Draft Plan was also made available to the attendees.

DRAFT Recommendations - Madeira Comprehensive Plan


The DRAFT recommendations of the City’s first Comprehensive Plan were presented at the February 19, 2019 Planning Commission. This document is a DRAFT of the Working Group Recommendations that has been compiled by the City’s consultant, Envision LLC.  The document can be viewed at: DRAFT Comprehensive Plan Recommendations

The Working Groups consisted of four committees comprised of many residents and business leaders to evaluate the issues facing the future of our community: 1.) Economic Development, 2.) Active Transportation, 3.) Community Facilities and 4.) Housing. 

Input for these recommendations was also obtained through a series of Public Forums and Surveys from any resident who wished to participate.  The next step in the process of finalizing the Comprehensive Plan will be a review by the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee and the Planning Commission.  A thorough evaluation of all of the issues presented will be made and, from that analysis, the Planning Commission will present the final draft of the Comprehensive Plan to City Council. City Council will then be asked to adopt the Plan as the City’s vision for the future.  

Meetings of the Steering Committee and Planning Commission will be public and all are invited to attend to hear the discussion as the final draft is prepared.  City Council will also hold public meetings as it discusses the final recommendations prior to the Plan’s adoption.

Public Forum #2
will be held on July 31st at 7:00pm. This community engagement event is the second in a series of five public forums being held as part of the Comprehensive Plan process.

The forum will begin with a brief presentation and then ask residents for more focused input on their preferences on plan focus areas and potential enhancements by providing feedback at a series of themed stations. At each station attendees will be asked to indicate, on interactive display boards, the type and location of enhancements they would prefer the City to explore further. 

Sample imagery from case studies will be provided to help visualize potential options and evoke public feedback on what options are consistent with community’s character and identity. 

Based on initial public feedback received through the Community Survey, emphasis will be placed on soliciting further community input on:

    • the location and type of potential pedestrian and bicycle connections
    • the form and function of future development and public realm enhancements in the
      business district
    • possible community facilities and parks & recreation amenities.

Comprehensive Plan Initiated- April 2018
The City of Madeira is embarking on a year-long process to develop its very first Comprehensive Plan and seeks to gather community input as part of the process to establish a community vision.  The Comprehensive Plan will serve as a guiding document that assesses existing community conditions and future needs in order to provide strategic recommendations for the City's future.  The Comprehensive Plan will encompass all aspects of the community; including land use, housing, economic development, transportation, infrastructure improvements, and community facility enhancements.

The Comprehensive Plan process will officially kick-off in May 2018, at the first in a series, of  Public Forums with the plan slated for completion early in 2019.  We encourage you to help shape the community vision by joining us at engagement events and completing the Community Survey.
