Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Midvale Heights residents take pride in their neighborhood. This is evident not only in their well-kept homes and yards, but also in their willingness to work together on key projects: beautification, neighborhood identification, traffic calming, etc. On any block you'll find a diversity of people of all ages - young families, professionals, retirees. The convenience of suburban living within minutes of downtown Madison is hard to beat. One of Madison's oldest communities, Midvale Heights was originally settled in the 1850s. By the early 1950s Midvale Heights real estate was comprised of a variety of subdivisions, including Oakville Heights, Kenmore, Hillview, Third Oak, and Coney Weston. The area's rapid expansion led to the creation of a neighborhood association in 1954, while many parts of Madison, Wisconsin were still being settled. Today, Midvale Heights includes more than 1,300 homes and approximately 1,500 living units spread over 616 acres. The area's long history has produced a wide selection of first class antique homes, featuring two-storey Victorian architecture and large luxurious properties.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Mineral Point Road on the north, South Midvale Boulevard and Southwest Bike Path on the east, West Beltline Highway on the south, and South Whitney Way 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: -Midvale Heights and Westmorland Neighborhood prepared a joint neighborhood plan that addresses priority neighborhood issues. A joint steering committee of residents worked with the City of Madison and a local consultant to develop improvement strategies (2009).
