The City of Madison is holding a public information meeting on Tuesday March 10 to discuss two proposed projects for Nakoma Park that would begin in 2015. The meeting will be held at Thoreau Elementary School, next to Nakoma Park on Madison’s near west side at 3870 Nakoma Road. The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm in the school cafeteria.
According to the text of the public notice from the City, the two proposed projects are:
“The Nakoma Steps”
“The historic sandstone steps between Cherokee Drive to Nakoma Park are in need of significant masonry repairs. The City is planning to investigate, stabilize, and restore the stairs in a manner that preserves their appearance and historic significance.”
“Nakoma Drainage Channel”
“The drainage channel within Nakoma Park is experiencing erosion on the southeast bank, as well as in the area upstream of the channel. The City is proposing to regrade and stabilize portions of the southeast bank, and provide a stabilized pathway for flood waters that enter the channel via overland flow.”
“A brief presentation will be given for each project, followed by a question and answer session. Representatives from City Engineering and City Parks will be available to answer questions.”
