Tell the City YOU oppose the resolution!

Read the No New Stadium statement in response to Edgewood’s request to exit the Master Plan.

No New Stadium unequivocally opposes the resolution to allow the Edgewood campus to voluntarily withdraw from its Master Plan.

 By allowing Edgewood to abandon this agreement now, the city would be discouraging future trust by all Madison residents in the city input process, and contradict the legislative intent of the Campus Institutional District ordinance, which was designed to balance the competing needs of institutions with the residential neighborhoods in which they are located. While the neighborhoods are not signatories to the Master Plan, we are significant stakeholders and our voices should count. We continue to have faith in the Master Plan process, which has allowed Edgewood and its neighbors to coexist in mutual respect since 1997, and in our elected officials, who value community engagement. In that spirit, we urge the Common Council to oppose this resolution.
