Alliant Energy Center Committee completes Destination District and Master Plan work

EXCERPTS FROM HNGNEWS.COM/SUN PRAIRIE STAR: The Alliant Energy Center Master Plan Oversight Committee has completed its work on a master plan for the 164-acre campus and its environs–as well as a related Destination District plan for the larger area. 

The goal for the AEC Master Plan (led by the Committee with consultant Perkins + Will) is to make the Alliant Energy Center (AEC) a catalyst for growth and economic vitality for the entire area. The Destination District plan (spearheaded by the Committee with consultant Vandewalle & Associates) is to integrate the Alliant Energy Center campus with the surrounding area to provide visitors and residents with a variety of recreation, dining and entertainment options. Infrastructure and connection to resources such as the lakeshore and bike paths would be optimized, turning the area into an attractive and accessible gateway to Madison.

District improvements would also enhance the quality of life for nearby neighborhood residents.

“As a longtime resident of the Bay Creek neighborhood and as a local business owner, I’m committed to making sure investment in the Alliant Energy Center pays off for the entire community,” said Brewer Stouffer, founder and owner of Roman Candle Pizza and a committee member. “I’m thrilled by what the vision and potential investment will add to the neighborhood—a gateway into Madison and Dane County.”
