A list of recommendations was drafted by a subcommittee of the RNA Board and discussed at a neighborhood meeting on Nov. 14, 2012. Comments were collected at the meeting and additional comments were received via e-mail. Some modifications were made based on the comments and the RNA Board approved the revised recommendations at its April 24, 2013 meeting.
An ad-hoc committee of the Board is now putting together the final draft of the plan. The final draft will include background information on neighborhood history, demographics and current land use; the rationale for the recommendations; and an implementation plan. The final draft will be made available to the neighborhood before the Board takes its final vote and submits the plan to the city.
The time line, the current UAC plan recommendations, comments, and related documents are posted at the "Corridor Plan" link (see left hand side of this page or click here).
The Regent Neighborhood is located
on the near west side of Madison, Wisconsin,
adjacent to the University of Wisconsin campus, the UW and VA Hospitals, and the
U.S. Forest Products Lab. The neighborhood is also within walking distance of
Lake Mendota, Lake Wingra, the Henry Vilas Zoo, local business districts and bike and pedestrian trails.
The purpose of the Regent Neighborhood Association (RNA) is to articulate common interests in the neighborhood, work for neighborhood improvement, and maintain strong communications with and between residents. The RNA seeks to be a broad-based, inclusive, and credible organization engaging as many neighborhood residents as possible in efforts to improve the neighborhood.
Specifically, we strive to:
-maintain the family and residential character of the neighborhood while welcoming small businesses;
-improve the quality of schools, green spaces, transportation, and other features of the neighborhood;
-encourage good relations between homeowners, landlords, renters, and business owners; and
-promote citizen involvement in neighborhood and city affairs.
