San Damiano possesses extraordinary environmental, historical, cultural, and recreational value for our community. We remain steadfast in working together to sustain our community’s vision for the property.
Thank you for your enthusiasm and participation in this once-in-a-generation project. This year, thousands of neighbors enjoyed the stunning beauty of San Damiano’s nearly 10 acres and 1,500 feet of Lake Monona frontage. Together, we raised all the funds necessary to begin the master planning process; to create our collective vision of what this special place might become.
Our focus now shifts to raising the critical funds necessary:
- To provide the care the property requires
- To continue to produce events for the community
- To invest in any suggested improvements that may be generated by the property master plan (estimated plan completion date is Dec. 2023)
WE NEED YOUR HELP
The immediate goal is to raise $55,000 before year-end. Private funds are necessary to ensure the City of Monona sustains San Damiano as a public asset.
