Good evening, this is First Selectwoman Peggy Lyons with today’s weekly update.
As we swing into the full summer season, a reminder that Madison Fireworks will be holding its annual fireworks show this Friday, July 2nd at 9:30 p.m. with a rain date of July 5th.
Due to the expected high visitor volume next weekend at our beaches, the Town will be implementing a number of special event parking policies exclusively for the long July 4th holiday weekend (Friday, July 2nd through Monday, July 5th).
The Madison Exchange Club will be sponsoring its annual Independence Day parade on Sunday, July 4th. Step off will be at 10 a.m. from the Stop n Shop parking lot and conclude at the Surf Club. This will result in a significant amount of congestion at West Wharf and the Surf Club in the hours following the parade. Please plan your beach day accordingly, and keep informed of planned road closures and parking restrictions. When parking your vehicles along the parade route in advance, please be mindful that families with small children and seniors will be lining the route. We ask you do not block key viewing locations with parked cars.
All road closure information and beach policies for the long holiday weekend is available on the Town website.
Madison Public Schools is reaching out to the broader community to solicit input on plans for a construction project that in part would build a new Pre-K – 5th grade elementary school, convert Brown School to a K-5 building, and update Polson Middle School. The District is using a new tool, ThoughtExchange, to collect and review your feedback. Your responses to this exchange will assist the District in moving a building project forward. This exchange is now open and will close at 5:00 PM on Friday, July 30th. Please take a few moments to share your thoughts on this building project by visiting https://my.thoughtexchange.com/scroll/565326337/welcome.
A reminder that starting in July, I will be shifting my weekly community updates to a bi-weekly schedule every other Friday, so on July 2, July 16, July 30, etc. Please note that you can change how you receive these messages from Madison Alerts, whether by voice, email or text, by updating your account settings at www.madisonct.org/madisonalerts.
