A neighborhood association might be defined as an
organization of citizens bound together by a geographical
area who cooperate to support and improve the quality
of life in their neighborhood.
Capitol Neighborhoods consists of an area marked
by Lake Monona on the southeast, Proudfit Street
to Regent St. to Park Street to Lake Mendota, extending
along the lakeshore to James Madison Park. Hence,
it extends down Blair Street to Lake Monona and back
to Proudfit Street.
It was incorporated as a
nonstock corporation in 1984 by a group of dedicated
neighbors, including Roth Judd, John Howell, Fred Mohs,
Terri Berceau, Carol Crossan, Gary Tipler and Lynne
Judd. It is currently divided
into five "districts", which have independent
identities, but are integral parts of the whole association.
The Districts are: First Settlement, Bassett, Mifflin
West, Mansion Hil and, James Madison Park. Please
see the map for
the boundaries. This allows the influence of Capitol
Neighborhoods to more completely register on issues within
the districts that go beyond the residential enclaves
We are always in the planning stage for future growth
of Capitol Neighborhoods. All suggestions are welcome
