Village Seeks Input on Downtown Parking

The Village of Waunakee is in the process of completing a downtown parking study. The study is to provide data on the current and future parking needs in the downtown. The final report will provide information about the capacity and use of existing parking facilities in the downtown. As part of the process we are seeking input from the public and business owners. The survey is intended to create opportunities to hear from people who park downtown, understand business parking needs, and develop parking strategies that support community goals for economic development, housing, and transportation in our downtown. The survey has 8 questions and 1 comment column which takes about 2-5 minutes to finish. Your feedback is important and will be included in our analysis. The survey can be accessed through the link below and will be accepted until November 30, 2018.

Barrels on Parade

In collaboration with Abby Wilson Painting, Endres Manufacturing, and Springfield Welding and Manufacturing , the 2018 Village of Waunakee’s Public Art Project highlights historic Waunakee, Downtown Madison, and the University of Wisconsin. Local artist, Abby Wilson was commissioned and designed artistic metal renderings that have been affixed to ten wooden barrels. Springfield Welding and Manufacturing, in partnership with Endres Manufacturing, assisted in translating the designs to metal, rolling and rendering the plates, and attaching the plates to the barrels. Each of the three designs will be featured on 3 of the barrels with one special barrel, stained red, signed with University of Wisconsin Athletic Coaches. 

Barrels are on display throughout the community in mostly high traffic locations including the Village Center, the Waunakee Public Library, Rex’s Inkeeper, Lone Girl, and Village Hall. If you have an interest in purchasing a barrel for your home or business, please contact Adam Bentley, Assistant Village Administrator at abentley@waunakee.com or at 608-850-2182.

Halloween Safety


Waunakee Halloween Trick or Treating
Wednesday, October 13, 2018
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Please keep everyone safe this year on Halloween, drive extra cautious in the neighborhoods and watch out for pedestrians. The following are some safety tips for parents and children:
  1. Teach your children how to properly cross a street. Only cross streets at crosswalks.
  2. Help your child pick out or make a costume that has eye holes large enough for good peripheral vision.
  3. For greater visibility during dusk and darkness, decorate or trim costumes with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car's headlights. Bags or sacks should also be light colored or decorated with reflective tape.
  4. To easily see and be seen, children should also carry flashlights or glow sticks.
  5. Costumes should be short enough to prevent children from tripping and falling.
  6. If your child is carrying a prop, make sure the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen on.
  7. Know the route your kids will be taking if you aren't going with them.
  8. The safest idea is to have an adult accompany kids. If you're not with the kids, be sure to set a time they will be home by. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time.
  9. Children should not enter homes or apartments unless they are accompanied by and adult.
  10. Teach your kids about not getting into strangers cars or talking to strangers, no matter what the person says to them. Explain to them as simply as you can that some adults are bad and want to hurt children, that they should never go into a house that they don't know, get into a car or go anywhere with a stranger. Also, tell them what to do should this happen, to scream as loud as they can to draw attention and to run away as fast as they can to someplace safe.
