Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: A sleigh ride through the neighborhood. Enjoying warm and tasty desserts by a bonfire. Who wouldn't want to be part of this neighborhood! East Buckeye Neighborhood is located on Madison far southeast side. Single-family homes with friendly neighbors makes this neighborhood a great place to live. One of the treasure troves is Orlando Bell Park: a large neighborhood park with a shelter, basketball court, soccer fields, and a playground area. PLUS, a wooded greenway and detention pond brings a sense of northern woods living to our urban neighborhood. As you walk down our quiet residential streets, you will notice bi-level or ranch single-family homes built between the late 1970s to early 1990s on at least 8000 square foot lot. The East Buckeye Neighborhood is a "family" neighborhood with adults and children of all ages. It is a quiet, peaceful neighborhood where people from all walks of life can live and raise a family.
Neighborhood Boundaries: East Buckeye Road on the north, Highway I-90 on the east, the Chicago Northwestern Railroad on the south and 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: -Madison Police Department, in conjunction with Elvehjem and East Buckeye neighborhoods, improved school crossing safety during the summer of 2009.

-At the intersection of Droster & East Buckeye Road a flashing yellow light warning drivers was installed and speed limit lowered (2009).

-East Buckeye Neighborhood Association worked with City Traffic Engineering to install a stop sign at East Buckeye & Vondron and to install traffic circles n South Thompson Road.

- The City of Madison adopted the Stoughton Road Revitalization Project Plan June 3, 2008. The Plan, prepared by the Cuningham Group, P.A., represents a two year collaborative project joining east side neighborhoods, private sector business interests, local, state, and county units of government. The Plan’s objective is to create a new vision for the Stoughton Road Corridor from Highway 12/18 north to Highway 30. The Plan establishes a clear sense of place, establishes Stoughton Road as a Gateway to the City, promotes a positive business climate, connect neighborhoods, generate design standards, updates land uses and zoning patterns, and generates multi-mode transportation opportunities (2008).

-East Buckeye Neighborhood Association raises and donates funds to local area causes (i.e. field trips, food bank) throughout the year.

-East Buckeye Neighborhood Association organized the dedication of Orlando Bell Park memorial and reflection bench (2005).
