Two major factors prompted us to begin the formal amendment process over a year and a half ago, as outlined in our Campus Master Plan:
1. Our agreement with Middleton High School was no longer feasible. City of Madison fields only became available for Edgewood’s use after all city schools and sports have scheduled their games. This left Edgewood scrambling to find a location to host their games. This also made every game an “away” game and led to extensive coordination, security, safety and liability issues as well as the frustrations involved in having to call multiple locations “home” in the same season.
2. Advancements in both lighting and sound technology have made it possible to ensure that two of the major neighborhood concerns we acknowledged early in the Campus Master Plan process — light and sound — could now be addressed in a fashion that not only meets, but exceeds the City of Madison requirements.
