No LIGHTS. No amplified Sound.
No new stadium.
Edgewood High School is proposing to build a 1,000-seat stadium on the site of their practice field that would use amplified sound and 80' tall lights that would enable the school to host night games. 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.
