Last Updated: 06/19/2019

New Master Plan Designs Have Been Chosen for North Star Park Expansion!
The North Star Park Master Plan Amendment was approved at the Board of Park Commissioners meeting on July 11, 2018.


Background
In 2014, North Star Park expanded by 4.7 acres. This new property was dedicated to the City of Madison as part of the North Addition to Grandview Commons development. The master planning process for this expanded property began in 2017, following the City of Madison Master Plan Policy.pdf. pdf  Parks staff held two public input meetings and issued an online survey to gather input from the community on the future of the Parks.

Meetings and materials that informed development of the master plan for North Star Park expansion can be found below.
 


Public Input Meeting One

Parks staff held a public meeting on Public Input Meeting on December 4th to discuss the Camar Park and North Star Park Expansion Master Plan.  At the session, attendees reviewed opportunities at each of the new park sites, answered questions regarding their preferences and priorities for items to include in the parks and worked as groups to place amenities on a scaled plan for the sites.
