Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Eastmorland is a cohesive neighborhood of approximately 3,200 residents on the east side of Madison, Wisconsin near Lake Monona and Olbrich Park. Though the earliest homes in Eastmorland were built in the 1920s, the Eastmorland Community Association was founded in 1957, when many starter homes were added within the boundaries. Close proximity to grocery, public transportation, bike trails, high performing elementary and middle schools, a public library, three houses of worship, beautiful city parks, and quality, affordable homes make Eastmorland a very desirable neighborhood for singles, families, and seniors. What can't be seen on a drive-through (or bike-through) of the neighborhood is the tremendous spirit of this place. The Eastmorland Community Association (ECA) began in 1957, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007. ECA has been instrumental in working to improve the neighborhood and to build relationships amongst neighbors and city officials.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Highway 30 on the north, Stoughton Road (Highway 51) on the east, Cottage Grove Road on the south, Lake Monona/Atwood Avenue and Starkweather Creek 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: - In late October of 2014 and spring into summer of 2015 undertook a fundraising drive to treat City Park ash trees in our neighborhood. This project gained interest and donations were sent for the project from all over Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, and Israel. Thirty-three ash trees were deemed treatable against emerald ash borer by the City Parks Dept. And treated. We have now begun fundraising for re-treatment of thirty-three ash trees in 2018

-The Royster-Clark Neighborhood Planning Team and the City of Madison Planning staff met monthly for more than two years to create a "Special Area Plan" for the former Royster-Clark property at the corner of Dempsey and Cottage Grove Roads. The 62-page plan was adopted by the Madison Common Council in October 2009. The plan outlines proposed land use and development recommendations for the future of the site. This 26.6-acre property is one of the largest sites in the City of Madison to be redeveloped (2009). Ruedebusch Development & Construction, Inc. is currently constructing a mixed-use development on the property using our “Special Area Plan.”

-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).

-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.
