Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Eastmorland is a cohesive neighborhood of approximately 3,200 residents on the east side of Madison, Wisconsin near Lake Monona and Olbrich Park. Though the earliest homes in Eastmorland were built in the 1920s, the Eastmorland Community Association was founded in 1957, when many starter homes were added within the boundaries. Close proximity to grocery, public transportation, bike trails, high performing elementary and middle schools, a public library, three houses of worship, beautiful city parks, and quality, affordable homes make Eastmorland a very desirable neighborhood for singles, families, and seniors. What can't be seen on a drive-through (or bike-through) of the neighborhood is the tremendous spirit of this place. ECA has been instrumental in working to improve the neighborhood and to build relationships amongst neighbors and city officials. The Madison Neighborhood Indicators Project (NIP), which may be found at https://madison.apl.wisc.edu/ is a tracking system designed to follow neighborhoods' wellness over time. Data has been collected since 2008 and can be used to identify trends. The NIP aims to support better understanding of the changes within Madison neighborhoods. The use of the indicators along with local knowledge and other informational resources can help all Madison neighborhoods thrive.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Highway 30 on the north, Stoughton Road (Highway 51) on the east, Cottage Grove Road on the south, Lake Monona/Atwood Avenue and Starkweather Creek on the west
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.
