Farm near Woodman’s may finally be developed

City eyes Voit property for park, major project

For 40 years, Ald. David Ahrens has often heard rumors about the Voit family’s 68-acre property on the eastern edge of Madison.

Those rumors have turned out to be just that. Until now.

“There’s always been talk that ‘Voit is selling, Voit is selling,’” Ahrens says. “But this is real this time.”

There’s no developer or buyer yet, but city officials are contemplating what could be done with the farm and several nearby properties, which are either up for sale or are unused.
