Madison Green Map Project

Madison green map graphicThe Wisconsin Environmental Initiative has begun coordinating the creation of a Green Map for Madison and Dane County. Communities following the lead of Manhattan and Copenhagen are making Green Maps to celebrate natural treasures of an area and to spotlight environmentally oriented organizations and businesses. Madison's version will advance the state of the art in green-mapping by showing the interrelationships between human development and natural systems.

The Madison Green Map team included WEI staff and board members, regional planner emeritus Phil Lewis, Lou Host-Jablonski from Design Coalition, cartographer Peter Sample and members of the Urban Open Space Foundation, and with the invaluable assistance of the University of Wisconsin's Land Information Center.

The project is on hold for now.
