Reynolds Park - Water Utility Building Rooftop Lighting for Tennis and Bike Polo

Last Updated: 03/20/2019

This project includes adding lights to the rooftop of the existing Water Utility Building located adjacent to Reynolds Park.  The rooftop of Nichols Station, located at 101 N. Livingston is jointly operated by Madison Parks and Madison Water Utility as a recreational facility offering bike polo, and newly installed tennis courts with a SportsCourt surfacing.

This building was constructed in the 1970's and the original construction included light pole bases and conduit, anticipating rooftop athletic use of the building. Throughout the years light poles have been added and removed, and currently there are no lights on the rooftop.

The City hired Strand Associates to evaluate the structural integrity of these existing light pole bases, and to identify options for meeting the requests for lighting.

A public meeting for this project is anticipated to occur in May.  Postcards announcing this project will be mailed to addressed within 1/4 mile of this project. 

Construction is anticipated to begin late 2019.
