Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Greater Sandburg stretches from Stoughton Road on the west to the Interstate on the east and is bounded by Hanson Road to the north and East Washington Avenue to the south. Our diverse residential mix includes single family homes of varying styles, apartments, and condos – all of which share location within this common and surprisingly compact geography. School districts include Madison -- Sandburg Elementary, with its outdoor classroom is within walking distance for many, and DeForest. Among our parks, the largest is Reindahl, where soccer and cricket leagues provide an international flavor and community gardens offer urban farming opportunities. At the same time, we are near East Towne mall and the Dane County Airport. The neighborhoods that make up Greater Sandburg include the former Norman Acres, Bluff Acres and Westchester Gardens, together with the Hayes Road area and Churchill Heights. Natural areas include Sandburg Woods, and Token Creek is nearby.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Roughly Hanson Road on the north, I90/94 on the east, East Washington Avenue on the south, and Stoughton Road on the west. Boundaries are inclusive of the area within the Clarendon Hills Homeowners’ Association, with the understanding that Clarendon Hills HA is a legal entity with specific authority, not overlapping the neighborhood association functions of GSNA
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.
