City to study land use around Oscar Mayer plant

A resolution before the city of Madison would form a Strategic Assessment Committee to review land use options around the soon-to-close Oscar Mayer plant in Madison, according to a report in The Capital Times.

The 72-acre site, now zoned for industrial use, would have to be rezoned to enable a future developer to propose a different use. The proposed committee would define future development objectives for the area, which is located on Madison’s north side.

Under the resolution, to be considered this week by the Plan Commission and the Finance Committee, committee members would be appointed by the mayor.
