EPA’s Greening America’s Capitals: Madison

Madison, Wisconsin

Madison’s Triangle Neighborhood is a mix of low-income families, refugee housing and people with special needs, all of whom could benefit from a stronger connection to the surrounding community. Vireo was selected by the EPA to lead an intensive three-day charrette process engaging residents, city officials and community leaders to help create design alternatives and a vision for the Triangle Neighborhood. Concepts for connecting the residents to their neighbors and nearby green spaces included street and intersection upgrades, complete street strategies, green infrastructure additions, public art and iconic gateway features.
