Preservation & Development

The Marquette neighborhood is composed almost entirely of two historic districts: Third Lake Ridge and Marquette Bungalows. The ordinances of these Historic Districts put great emphasis on preserving the unusual abundance of well-preserved and diverse historical building stock. Additionally, for both residential and commercial property, our neighborhood places a high importance on building space that is affordable for the greatest possible range of incomes.

The Preservation and Development Committee (P&D) deals with neighborhood development, affordable housing, historic preservation and city planning. The committee works with developers who want to build, restore, rehab or buy property, start a business, or who otherwise have development plans for the neighborhood. P&D works together with interested parties to ensure that development meets the needs of the neighborhood to the fullest extent possible. P&D uses the adopted City of Madison plans for the neighborhood as a framework. The committee meets monthly with additional meetings as needed to address current development.

There are five standing members of the committee appointed 3/17/16:  Ross Wuennenberg, Nick Schroeder, Linda Lehnertz, John Coleman, Jesse Pycha-Holst.  Alternates are Darcy Bean and Pilar Gomez-Ibanez.
