Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: The Bridge Lake Point Waunona Way Neighborhood is a small, quaint neighborhood located south of Lake Monona. Over the last several years, the neighborhood has transformed from a primarily renter-occupied to a mix of renter- and owner-occupied housing. Bridge Lake Point Waunona Neighborhood Revitalization efforts have also lead the way to the opening of the Bridge Lake Point Waunona Neighborhood Center (BLW). The Bridge Lake Point Waunona Neighborhood Center (BLW) is a community-directed, non-profit organization with a divers funding base that promotes community building and partnerships, working cooperatively with local nonprofit and business organizations to make the best use of limited resources. Bridge Lake Point Waunona Way Neighborhood Association focuses on making the neighborhood a better place for everyone to live. Association members have been working with residents on financial issues such as renter vouchers and utility bills as well as helping individuals to get to medical appointments and support groups.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Waunona Way on the north, Bridge Road on the east, West Broadway on the south, Fayette Avenue on the west
Neighborhood Statistics Indicators: The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level. Basic neighborhood information as well as housing, public safety, health and family well-being, economic, and transportation indicators by neighborhood is available.
Recent Accomplishments: -Worked with Bridge-Lakepoint- Waunona Community Center fall 2008-spring 2009 to improve their nutrition and physical activity environment for their afterschool program. A Healthy Communities Awards Program participant, the center made the soda machine inaccessible to youth, created a policy to serve fruit daily, to limit portions of 100% juice and encourage water drinking with personal water bottles. The center staff also arranged for training for neighborhood residents in healthy meal planning and fitness instruction after youth surveyed the residents’ needs and interests. Other involved agencies include Group Health Cooperative of Southwest Wisconsin.

-Madison Transit extended last trips on weekends on Route 16 all the way through to the South and East Transfer Points and is undertaking a capital improvement project to replace glass panels in all Metro bus shelters (removing old glass panels with a graffiti film that has become cloudy/opaque with new clear plexiglass panels)(2009).

-Received 2004 Neighborhood Planning Grant to design/construct a kiosk outside the community center. The kiosk will be used to provide information on upcoming center programs, community clubs/organization meetings, and events being held at the neighborhood center and in the community.

-In 1995, the City of Madison Community Development Authority purchased Monona Shores apartments from HUD. This action was the first in a series of property acquisitions and neighborhood improvements projects to help revitalize the neighborhood.
