The Sun Prairie Community Development Authority (CDA) is serving as the steering committee while Vierbicher Associates, Inc. has been hired as the contracted consultant to assist with the planning project. The project will focus on strengthening social and economic vitality, increasing housing density, and establishing sustainable activity and compatible uses within the Central Main Street Corridor.
This process is being funded in part by a Better Urban Infill Development (BUILD) grant from Dane County. The City has successfully partnered with the Dane County BUILD program in the past, including the creation of Downtown Redevelopment plans that directly led to the development of Cannery Square, as well as the redevelopment of several industrial parcels to the Pick ‘N Save Grocery Store development located at the intersection of State Highway 19 and County Highway N.
