Marcy Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan and
Dinkytown Business District Plan

Public Review

The Marcy Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan and the accompanying Dinkytown Business District Plan are now available for a 45 day public comment period prior to the commencement of the City’s formal plan approval process through the Planning Commission and City Council. The comment period will extend from Friday, April 18 until Monday, June 2, 2014. All comments received during the public comment period will be incorporated in the public record and taken into consideration in editing the final draft of the plan.

The draft plans for public review are available below, in the Draft Plan section. As the plans have been available for informal review for several months, all comments that have been collected in the interim have been addressed in these drafts, and will be included in the plan’s public record.

In order to ensure they are included in the public record, written comments should be submitted to Haila Maze, via email or regular mail, at the contact information provided below.


The purpose of the Dinkytown business district planning process is to develop and refine the City’s land use and development policy for the Dinkytown activity center area.

This is being undertaken through the initiative of the a working group representing business district stakeholders, in partnership with the Marcy Holmes Neighborhood Association and the City.

It is also being coordinated with the neighborhood association’s concurrent update to the Marcy Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan. The intent is to complete the planning process by late fall/early winter 2013, to coincide with the Marcy Holmes plan update timeline. The Dinkytown plan will be incorporated into the neighborhood master plan.

More information, including opportunities for involvement and draft documents for review, will be posted here when available.
