[ARCHIVED] First Selectwoman's Community Update

First Selectwomans community update

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

I am grateful to announce that we continue to have no COVID-19 cases in our community.   However, as the delta variant begins to spread throughout our nation and state, it is important we work towards vaccinating as many of our qualified residents as possible in order to protect ourselves, especially our most vulnerable residents, from a resurgence in this disease.

Vaccine Clinic

Next week the Town of Madison is partnering with Griffin Hospital and East Shore Health District to offer a Wellness & Vaccine clinic at the Surf Club. The clinic will be held next Wednesday, July 21st from 2 to 6 p.m. in the parking lot at the Surf Club where Griffin Health will be using its mobile vaccination clinic to administer all three vaccines for qualified age groups. The vaccine will be free, no insurance is required. Free parking at the Surf Club is available for vaccine recipients along with health education materials and giveaways. Please check the town website for further information on the clinic.

Island Avenue Proposals

Earlier this week the Board of Selectmen met to discuss the three responses received to the Town’s Request for Proposal regarding the Island Avenue School Property.  The Board will be holding a Public Hearing on all three proposals on August 3rd at 6 p.m. The proposals will be available for public review next week on the Town website; more details on how to attend this meeting will be posted on the Town calendar.  

Summer Activities

Now that we are in the full summer season, there are plenty of family friendly activities to enjoy throughout our town.  The Beach & Recreation Department has launched its free summer concert series. Concerts are held each Sunday evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the Town Green, with this Sunday, July 18th hosting the 60’s Satisfaction Band. Please refer to the Beach & Recreation website for more details on the schedule. In addition, Salt Meadow Park is also sponsoring summer concerts at its natural outdoor amphitheater.  More details can be found on the town website. 

After a one year pause due to COVID, the Rotary Club of Madison is currently holding its annual club carnival at Academy Field. Launched on July 14th, the carnival will be running through tomorrow night, Saturday July 17th.  

Community Survey

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. The exchange is open and will close at 5:00 PM on Friday, July 30th. Please take a moment to participate in the exchange by visiting the ThoughExchange online. 

Have a great weekend Madison!
