In 1908, Harvard educated landscape architect John Nolen was contacted by John Olin of the Madison Park and Pleasure Drive Association for advice in laying out Madison city parks. Nolen had a comprehensive approach which blended social, economic, and physical aspects of urban life with the preservation of natural beauty.  The plan he developed for the City of Madison is considered a preeminent example of the urban landscape movement.

In 2010, the Madison Design Professional Workgroup created a vision for the Law Park area that seeks to continue the vision of John Nolen.  Tim Anderson will present the proposal which facilitates the connection of the city to the waterfront, addresses traffic congestion, and creates economic and environmental benefits. He will also discuss the process of spearheading a vision through the community planning process, a vision that was created by design professionals with a passion for their city.

Tim Anderson is a former Principal and founding Owner of Schreiber Anderson Associates, a Madison planning, landscape architecture and civil engineering firm established in 1984. Tim has over 40 years of community planning and design experience. Tim’s work has focused on downtown and neighborhood master plans; urban infill and redevelopment projects; architectural design guidelines; waterfront, streetscape and public space designs; and historic preservation. In 2008, Tim created the Madison Design Professionals Workgroup, a volunteer group of design and planning professionals who collaborate to assist on community projects.  They offer bold and exciting visions that promote sustainability, place-making, transportation connections, and economic development.
