Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Bayview Foundation's guiding purpose is to facilitate families as they meet their needs, realize their dreams and make contributions to the community. Together, Bayview Foundation and Bayview Townhouse residents created a people proven model of successful, dynamic cooperation that works. The mission of Bayview Foundation is to provide housing, human service, arts appreciation and cultural awareness. These key elements evolved from over twenty-five years of experience in the business of neighborhood development. We are a good neighbor, nestled amidst downtown Madison's government, health care and educational complexes.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Regent Street on the north, West Washington Avenue on the east and south, South Park Street 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 Bayview community annually hosts the Triangle Ethnic Fest, a gala event that brings together people of every ethnic background for a day of cultural and social exchange.

-Public Health-Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) has worked with the Bayview Community Center staff to work on childhood obesity prevention by developing nutrition guidelines and introducing nutrition education into the youth programs. In order to increase physical activity opportunities, PHMDC has also worked with community partners to bring resources for recreation programs such as soccer and dance to the neighborhood (2009).

-Public Health Madison & Dane County partnered with Triangle Ministries to implement P.L.A.N. (Preparedness through Linking All Neighbors). P.L.A.N. is based on the idea that a neighborhood’s “social capital” (including overall levels of trust, reciprocity, solidarity, and cooperation) plays a key role in determining how well a community is able to respond to any event that disrupts everyday life. The PLAN program aims to increase community security by helping neighborhood residents develop skills and have opportunities to get to know their neighbors better. Since January 2008, community service providers and residents have organized two fire drills and one severe weather drill, registered more than 60 people in the Dane County Emergency Management registry and conducted many community education programs and workgroups. Some of the community program topics include: pet safety planning, personal safety and crime prevention, fire safety and information on assembling personal emergency kits and plans. PLAN activities will continue into the future with support from CDA Housing operations (2008-2009).

-Received Neighborhood Planning Grant for Happy Seats (2008), garden planters (2005), Welcome Home Sign (2006), Our Neighborhood, Our Pride Mural Project (2003), and neighborhood signs and landscaping (2002).
