Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Sherman is a convenient walkable, bikeable family friendly, enjoyable and green neighborhood. Residents are close to Lakeview Library, Willy St. Coop North, Sunday morning Northside Farmers Market, FEED Kitchen, Mallards Baseball, Warner Park, and many popular businesses and restaurants. Easy access to the North Transfer Metro Station, Dane County Regional Airport, and the interstate. Predominantly single-family and small multi-unit buildings, the neighborhood contains hundreds of households but maintains a strong sense of community. Sherman Middle School and Shabazz High School are within our boundaries and the Madison Area Technical College campus is nearby.
Neighborhood Boundaries: The northern portion of Sherman Neighborhood Association (SNA) is the rectangle bounded by Northport Drive on the north, Packers Avenue on the east, Commercial Avenue on the south, and Sherman Avenue on the west; the southern portion of SNA extends along Sherman Avenue and Fordem Avenue on the west, along E. Johnson Street on the south, along a line extending north from First Street on the east to the point where this line intersects with the railroad corridor, then north and east along the railroad corridor until it intersects with Commercial Avenue.
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.
Neighborhood Events: Annual meeting, semi-annual potluck dinners
