No new stadium
No lights. No amplified sound.
UPDATE MARCH 7, 2019, 12pm. At the Wednesday, March 6 DMNA Council meeting, the Council passed a motion to meet next Wednesday to discuss the terms of engagement with Edgewood High School. The Council, for the first time in remembered history, will meet twice in one month, signifying the importance of this issue to the neighborhood and the Council’s commitment to a transparent process.
FEBRUARY 23, 2019. The Edgewood High School Board of Trustees announced it will seek permits for outdoor lighting and sound amplification on the practice field. Bordered by Monroe and Woodrow Streets the field is a mere 65 feet away from the nearest residential property. The Dudgeon Monroe Neighborhood Association has opposed the project while noting a history of support for other Edgewood projects in recent years.
Noise and light impacts on the neighborhood would be significant in terms of intensity and reach. You can take action to protect Lake Wingra, Madison’s quietest lake, from sky glow and noise pollution. Tell the city to say “No” to the stadium.
