UniverCity DeForest

The Village of DeForest is part of the greater Madison area and located two miles north of the Dane County Regional Airport. While a part of the greater Madison area, DeForest offers the charm of being set apart from a larger city and boasts quiet and walkable neighborhoods, top schools, abundant parks and trails, and natural resources like the Cherokee Marsh and the Yahara River. 

DeForest applied to UniverCity for the years 2023-26 to pursue projects that will implement strategic priorities identified in the recently completed Comprehensive Plan and 2023-2028 Strategic Plan. DeForest plans to address needs related to population and development growth and community natural resource assets. 

The Village of DeForest logo is brown and green and reads Village of DeForest. In the center of a bronze ring is the image of trees and a waterway.
