National Landmark Historic District
The City of Madison is proud of its managed growth through planning and zoning. The adoption of an ordinance protecting the city's historic district has enabled us to be named a National Landmark Historic District, one of only 11 in the United States and arguably one of the largest. The rules that govern the planning and zoning of the community have been updated to mesh more closely with those of Jefferson County and the town of Hanover, which were revised recently.
