Our Story

Smart Growth Greater Madison (SGGM) is the advocacy organization for Dane County Real Estate Developers. Founded in 2003 by a group of local real estate developers as an entity to represent the voice of the real estate developer community, SGGM has grown to include a wide range of commercial and residential developers, and has added associate members including general contractors, architects, engineers, law firms, and insurance companies. Our mission is to further rational public policy as it pertains to development in Dane County. Issues SGGM has been involved with include zoning code rewrites, tax incremental financing policy, demolition standards, parking standards, changes to signage requirements and affordable housing policy. In addition to advocacy, SGGM provides an educational resource for elected officials and the general public on a myriad of issues surrounding development.
