Capitol Neighborhoods, Inc. is an organization that represents folks who live in the five districts that surround the state capitol of beautiful Madison, WI. They are dedicated to improving the experience of residing in Madison's vibrant downtown.

Capitol Neighborhoods consists of an area marked by Lake Monona on the southeast, Proudfit Street to Regent St. to Park Street to Lake Mendota, extending along the lakeshore to James Madison Park. Hence, it extends down Blair Street to Lake Monona and back to Proudfit Street.

It was incorporated as a nonstock corporation in 1984 by a group of dedicated neighbors, including Roth Judd, John Howell, Fred Mohs, Terri Berceau, Carol Crossan, Gary Tipler and Lynne Judd. It is currently divided into six "districts", which have independent identities, but are integral parts of the whole association.

The Districts are: First Settlement, Bassett, Mifflin West, Mansion Hil and, James Madison Park. This allows the influence of Capitol Neighborhoods to more completely register on issues within the districts that go beyond the residential enclaves found there.
