The Neighborhood Plan

The University Hill Farms Ad Hoc Steering Committee was appointed by the Mayor, confirmed by the Common Council, in February 2013. The steering committee’s role was to prepare a 10-15 year plan for the study area: roughly University Avenue on the north, N Midvale Boulevard on the east, Mineral Point Road on the south, and Rosa Road and N Whitney Way on the west. As part of the planning process, residents of the study area were invited to participate at several public open houses, through an online community survey, and as part of smaller focus groups. Conversations were initiated with major multifamily, commercial and institutional property-owners, especially in regards to proposed land use changes in strategic focus areas.

The University Hill Farms Neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
