Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan and
Dinkytown Business District Plan

Public Review and Approval

The Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan and the accompanying Dinkytown Business District Plan has now completed 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 was held from Friday, April 18 until Monday, June 2, 2014. All comments received during the public comment period were incorporated in the public record and taken into consideration in editing the final draft of the plan. The comments are summarized below, with responses:

The plans are now moving forwarding through the City approval process. The plans were recommended for approval at the Planning Commission meeting on July 14, 2014. More information, including the agenda and materials is available on the Planning Commission website. The versions of the plans presented are linked below, in the Draft Plan section.

The plans will next go to the Zoning and Planning Committee meeting on Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. Additional information will be posted when available on the Zoning and Planning Committee website.


The Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association recently completed a process to update the Marcy Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan. During the same time period, a parallel planning process was conducted for the Dinkytown business district, coordinated with business district stakeholders. The intent was to provide a unified planning framework for the neighborhood, with some in-depth recommendations specifically for the business district. The Dinkytown Business District Plan will be an appendix to the new Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Master Plan. The recommendations from the Dinkytown plan are also incorporated directly into the Marcy-Holmes plan document.
