Agenda Item 7 Superintendent's May 2019 Report
Included in the report:
"Another sign of spring that is new this year is that of professional soccer on the pitch at Breese Stevens Field. Madison Forward FC played their first home game in snowy conditions in late April (the frozen tundra of Breese?), with attendance at around 4,500 people. This marks a significant achievement in the adaptive repurposing of an historic asset in our parks system. Early indications are that about 170,000 people will visit Breese this year, which is at least 8 times the number who visited in 2012. Another landmark in the system is the Garver Feed Mill and work being done to preserve it by Baum has continued with a few vendors now operating out of the Mill itself. These two stories along with our work at Forest Hill Cemetery and Gates of Heaven really highlight the importance and priority Madison Parks has placed on preserving our historic landmarks."
Also Included:
"Dog Policy – The Long Range Planning Subcommittee has started work on reviewing the policy related to dogs in parks. Staff is hopeful that any policy changes will be brought to the Commission in the first half of the year.
Off-Leash Dog Parks – Staff is working to determine potential off-leash improvements in the priority areas of the West side, Atwood/East Isthmus, and Far East/Grandview. The Approved Master Plan for North Star Park will address the deficiency in Grandview. Staff are working on concepts for the other two priority areas and anticipate moving forward with engagement processes in 2019."
Agenda Item 21
