Madison Council Reduces Limitations for New and Existing Co-ops

The Madison Common Council has agreed to decrease the limitations on establishing housing cooperatives, or co-ops, throughout the city. 

At their February 2nd meeting, they passed a new ordinance that will make it easier for new co-ops to be built in areas where they could not previously.

With the newly amended ordinance, future co-ops will face significantly less red tape.
