[ARCHIVED] First Selectwoman's Community Update

First Selectwomans community update

Good evening, this is First Selectwoman Peggy Lyons with today’s bi-weekly update.

Unfortunately, the weather is not co-operating with our Independence Day celebrations. Due to the rain and expected cloud cover this evening, Madison Fireworks has postponed tonight’s fireworks display to Monday, July 5th at 9:30 p.m.

Holiday Weekend Parking Policies

A reminder that special event parking policies are in place starting today, through the long July 4th holiday weekend (Friday, July 2nd through Monday, July 5th).  

  • No beach parking stickers or daily parking passes will be sold at the Surf Club throughout the long holiday weekend. 
  • Madison residents can purchase seasonal beach stickers on-line through the Beach & Recreation website at www.madisonct.org/beachstickers  and use their receipt as proof of residency for up to ten days after the purchase date.
  • Purchase of a beach sticker or a daily parking pass does not guarantee parking availability.  Once a parking lot is filled, all cars will be turned away regardless of a pass so please plan accordingly. Visitors and residents can request a refund for a daily parking pass if it is unused.  
  • Parking at Lowry Field will be staffed from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and Monday from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. due to the fireworks.
  • For the July 5th fireworks only: 
    • Gate hours will be extended at the Surf Club Gate, East Wharf Gate, and Lowry from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. Any resident or guest wishing to park for the fireworks at these lots will need a seasonal beach sticker or daily parking pass.
    • Parking at West Wharf will be prohibited starting mid-morning on Monday to allow for the set-up of the fireworks.  
    • The Town will be running shuttle buses to the Surf Club on a continuous loop starting at 7 p.m. with stops at the 79/Commuter Lot, the Madison Train Station, and the Stop ‘n Shop parking lot.

July 4th Parade

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 & Shop parking lot and conclude at the Surf Club. All road closure information and beach policies for the long holiday weekend is available on the Town website at  www.madisonct.org/July4

Madison Alerts

A final reminder that I will be shifting my weekly community updates to a bi-weekly schedule every other Friday. The next community alert will be on July 16. 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. You can also unsubscribe at any time. 

As we celebrate the birth of our nation this weekend, let’s be grateful that we are able to gather together with family, friends, and neighbors this year to enjoy all our traditional celebrations. Our success in fighting, and ultimately overcoming, this recent pandemic is a result of our nation’s long tradition of innovation, resiliency, courage and steadfastness. 

Happy 4th of July Madison!
