Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Hiestand Neighborhood is defined by the boundaries of Milwaukee Street, Interstate 90/94, Highway 30 and Highway 51/Stoughton Road. Hiestand Neighborhood includes over 300 single residencies, two large apartment complexes, condominiums, numerous multi-family units, senior housing, two parks and over 30 different businesses. Hiestand Park and School were named for Jacob Hiestand who originally owned a farm across the road (Milwaukee Street). You will find an article about our school house (currently the Toad Hill Children's House) at the Historic Blooming Grove Historical Society web site: http://www.wlhn.org/daneco/hbg/deanhouse.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Commercial Avenue on the north, Highway 30 on the east, Milwaukee Street on the south, South Stoughton Road 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: -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.

-Hiestand Neighborhood Association, working with Madison Parks Division, improved Hiestand Park with a new shelter, pedestrian bridge, and bicycle paths. Friends of Hiestand Park was also formed to assist in the long-term care of the park and open space area.

-Hiestand Neighborhood Plan, a mid-range neighborhood plan, was adopted by the City of Madison in December 2006. The Plan identifies priority issues within the neighborhood. Since the adoption of the Plan, the neighborhood has estabished the Friends of Hiestand Park, installed a neighborhood identification sign, worked with Engineering and Parks Division to construct a bicycle path, bridge and shelter in Hiestand Park, and improved pedestrian/bicycle safety by marking bike lanes on Milwaukee Street.
