Evaluation and Analysis of Madison's Development Review and Permitting Process

This project evaluates the City of Madison's development review and permitting processes and analyzes practices of other cities' development and permitting processes. The authors use the most successful reforms from other cities to inform recommendations for implementing change in Madison, which might assuage criticism that Madison is not friendly to business. The city Economic Development Commission reviewed and formally endorsed these recommendations. Presentation slides
