Originally launched in 1999, the BUILD program partners with Dane County communities to plan and implement infill development through planning grants. Infill development is defined as the economic use of vacant land, or restoration or rehabilitation of existing structures or infrastructure, in already urbanized areas where water, sewer, and other public services are in place, that maintains the continuity of the original community fabric. BUILD grants help pay for planning consultants who assist communities with preparation of infill plans.
The activities of the BUILD program are guided by the Dane County Executive, the Dane County Board of Supervisors, and the BUILD Advisory Committee.
