Free Food & Family Fun at Northeast Area Connect Event

The City of Madison is inviting residents to two upcoming community connect events for the Northeast Area. Here you’ll learn about recommendations for land use, transportation, and more for the Northeast Area Plan. Additionally, the City is seeking input from residents on what physical improvements they’d like to see in the Greater Sandburg and Burke Heights neighborhoods. The first event is August 14, 2023 from 5-7 pm at Reindahl Park. The second event will take place August 16, 2023 from 5-7 pm at Sycamore Park. With free ice cream and food catered by La Taguara, firetruck tours, therapy animals, games, and face painting, residents are encouraged to make it a fun family outing!


The Brayton Lot (Block 113), is a two-acre surface parking lot situated three blocks from Capitol Square along East Washington Avenue in the First Settlement neighborhood. The future of this site has been addressed in multiple City adopted plans over nearly 30 years. These plans have been consistent in their vision for the scale and massing of future buildings. Now, the community has an unique opportunity to implement those plans, and two public meetings have been scheduled to learn about that opportunity.

Streets Division Updates:

Several streets will be closed Saturday morning, August 12, for the Madison Mini Marathon. The race starts at 7:00 a.m. at N Park St & State St, continues to the Capitol Square, through the UW Arboretum, and back to the UW campus.

Electronics must be delivered to the Streets Division’s drop-off sites, or to a reputable private electronics recycler in the area . These steps will protect your data and ensure the hazardous materials inside them are handled and recycled safely.
