The Greater Madison Region is a special place. Quality of life, prosperity and natural beauty draws and keeps people here.

These same qualities also fuel strong growth. At our current pace, we will see approximately another 175,000 people in the region in the next 25 years – the equivalent of two Camp Randall Stadiums full of Badger fans.

How we grow matters. How and where people, homes, businesses and roads are added matters to accessing good jobs, finding houses we can afford, getting where we need to go on time, holding down taxes spent on roads, preserving the rural countryside and farms, and clean water and the environment.

Getting growth right requires communities and organizations to work together. That is why leaders from business, government and non-profits across the region have launched A Greater Madison Vision.

Our mission is to develop a shared vision and plan to guide public and private decisions about how the region grows, to foster exceptional quality of life, economic opportunity and a healthy environment for all.
