New Parking Restrictions, Goodman Pool, CARES Team Expands

July 24, 2022 4:53 PM

Hi Everyone,

Here are this week's updates.


cscl sign

Parking restriction signs like these went up recently in a portion of the Dudgeon-Monroe neighborhood and a few of you have sent me emails asking what they're about.

The new restrictions are part of the Clean Streets Clean Lakes ordinance which stipulates that the signs must be followed once they are installed. All of Dudgeon-Monroe was added to the Snow Emergency Zone in the winter of 2020, which means residents are no longer subject to every day alternate street parking and are only subject to that requirement during declared snow emergencies. 

The way this works is no parking one day a week on the posted streets for street cleaning and/or snow removal, whichever the case may be.

It's my understanding Parking Enforcement Officers will just be issuing warnings the first few weeks in the newly-signed areas, but please get used to it. It's for the good of our lakes, including Lake Wingra!

Dane County Moves into "High" COVID-19 Community Level

On July 21, 2022, Dane County moved into the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) "high" COVID-19 community level . At this level, in accordance with CDC guidance, Public Health Madison & Dane County recommends that everyone be up-to-date on their vaccines and take additional precautions, including wearing a mask in indoor public spaces. Read the full release here.

The Common Council is not meeting this week, but this week there are 17 committee meetings, including the Landmarks Commission, the Plan Commission, the Sustainable Madison Committee, the Humanitarian Awards Commission, the Committee on Aging, the Urban Design Commission, the Transportation Commission, the Disability Rights Commission, and the Housing Strategy Committee.

OMG! The Outdoor Music Guide is Now Available

The Outdoor Music Guide (OMG) is a new resource that describes the ways someone can run an outdoor live music show, whether it is hosted by an individual, organization or a business. Created by the City to assist musicians and music business owners, the OMG document summarizes all the options based on City ordinances with the understanding that every activity is unique and other rules may apply. The City hopes that this tool answers questions and facilitates the delivery of music-related activities while fostering a vibrant music scene in the community.

CARES Team Expands with Second Response Team and Second Station Location to Better Serve City's West and South Sides

The Community Alternative Response Emergency Services (CARES) program, is a multi-agency program for addressing non-violent, behavioral health-related emergencies. Dane County's 911 dispatch center dispatches CARES units to these emergencies as an alternative to police. The goal of a CARES response is to assess, de-escalate, treat, and refer or transport patients, as needed, to behavioral health services in the community. The City has expanded the CARES program from one team to two and will be responding from a second location at 2120 Fish Hatchery Road to better access and serve the City's West and South Sides.

August Moving Days 

August Moving Days Includes Daily Collections of Carts in Student Move Area: Starting at 6:30 a.m. on Monday August 1, 2022 residents in the downtown moving days area can place trash and recycling collection carts out for pickup. On every weekday between Monday, August 1 and Monday, August 15, Streets Division crews will be emptying collection carts within the downtown moving days area. You can read the full release here.
August Moving Days: How to Use the Large Item Work Order System during the Move Out: Starting the week of August 7, 2022 and ending on Friday, August 19, 2022, the large item work order rules are different for items that are collected at no cost for residents who live in the downtown move-out area. There are no changes to the work order rules for large items that require a fee, like microwaves, televisions, or air conditioners. If you live in the student move out area, you will not be required to complete a work order for large Items that do not require a fee from August 8, 2022 until around 12:00pm on Friday, August 19, 2022. Read the full release here.
August Moving Days: How to Set Out Appliances, Furniture, & Other Large Items for Collection. Please follow these guidelines so Streets Division collections will be faster and safer. If you are moving, it is in your best interest to set the items out within the guidelines so crews can collect the items quickly and minimize the congestion caused by large, slow moving collection vehicles.

  • Keep items away from obstructions like fire hydrants and street signs.
  • Do not place items under overhead obstructions like low-hanging wires and low tree limbs, too.
  • Keep the large item piles tidy. For example, if you have disassembled a desk, stack the wood pieces neatly.
  • Separate metal items and appliances, such as bed frames or air conditioners, separate from other material so they can be easily collected and recycled.
  • Do not pile bagged trash or recyclables on top of large items or appliances.
  • Remember to use your collection carts for trash and recyclables that can fit inside. And never make loose heaps of papers, clothes, or other waste that can blow around and clutter your neighborhood.

Please review that release or check the Streets Division's Moving Days webpage to be sure you are using the system the right way. The moving days website is www.cityofmadison.com/MovingDays.

If you live outside of the move-out area and have questions regarding the large item system, please review the large item website, www.cityofmadison.com/LargeItem

Summer is going by quickly. Hope you can get out and enjoy the weather -- more tolerable since last evening's big rain.

Take care and stay safe,
