The City of Madison Parks Division is once again about to embark on the annual public input process for the playground replacement projects that are included in the 2017 parks capital budget submission. The Parks Division will hold a playground workshop focusing on several playgrounds at one time to provide the opportunity for neighborhoods to learn and share ideas with each other. While the capital budget is not yet finalized, we anticipate that this workshop will address playground replacement projects at Brigham Park, Lake Edge Park, McGinnis Park and Tenney Park (additional parks identified for 2017 playground improvements will be included in separate workshops previously scheduled).
The workshop will include a larger group presentation and discussion, then will break out into smaller sessions with staff to address design considerations related to the specific park's playground. Following the workshop, staff will schedule a separate playground meeting to finalize the playground design.
The first workshop is scheduled for November 17th, 2016 at 6:30 pm at Schenk Elementary School located at 230 Schenk Street. Attached is the map identifying the proposed mailing areas for the meeting notices (yellow line) related to Lake Edge. Generally postcards are sent to addresses within ¼ mile of a neighborhood park project (cyan dashed line). The postcards will be mailed approximately 10 days prior to the workshop, and notice of the workshop will be identified on our website and various social media outlets, a sign will be posted at the park about the meeting, and information will also be issued as a news release.
All neighborhood residents are invited to attend. Please stay tuned for updates on our Facebook group and LENA emails.
