Carol has been a part of the Madison Downtown Design Professionals Workgroup for a number of years. The group of planning and design professionals works pro bono on design visions for the future of downtown Madison. Carol was instrumental in the development of the "Design Visions for Regional Transportation Corridors" completed in 2014. The most recent project, Nolen Waterfront, has been favorably received by the community resulting in funding for a master plan study by the City of Madison. Additionally, Carol was responsible for producing an exhibit for the Watrous Gallery featuring the work of the group.
