New District Map

Reminder: Alder District Boundaries Change on January 1

City of Madison Alder Districts were amended and approved by Common Council in November due to redistricting required by the 2020 US Census. As a result, the Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood will join with District 6 across E. Washington Ave., currently represented by Brian Benford, while the Sherman Terrace area and the many apartments along Fordem Ave. will move to District 12, currently represented by Syed Abbas. These changes take effect on Jan. 1, 2022, rather than when current alder terms are up in April 2023.

It is unusual that as a resident of Tenney-Lapham I will no longer represent my neighborhood nor will I live in District 2 as of the new year, but this is the way redistricting works! Despite not living in the newly drawn District 2, I will continue to represent the James Madison Park and the Mansion Hill neighborhoods. District 2 will now stretch to Lake Street in the Langdon area and will include the 400, 500, and 600 blocks of State Street, rather than ending at Frances Street as it does now. Also included in District 2 will be blocks between State and W. Johnson from Bassett Street to Lake Street. See the new districts citywide here.


Tenney Beach Shelter

Replacement of the Existing Beach Shelter and Installation of Clean Beach Treatment System at Tenney Park in 2022-2023

Madison Parks, in conjunction with City Engineering and Dane County, will be constructing the new beach shelter which will be based on the Madison Parks prototype shelter which has been recently constructed at several other city parks. The beach shelter replacement project was approved as part of the City of Madison's adopted 2021 Capital Budget and was originally proposed to be constructed beginning in fall of 2021; however the delay in delivery of the clean beach system to Warner Park necessitates holding the project at Tenney Park so that Parks Operations staff can have a full season to implement and maintain the system prior to its implementation at other locations. Please visit "Tenney Park - Beach Shelter Replacement page".
