Lewis Nine Springs E-way in Fitchburg recognized with a “2018 Great Places” Award

FITCHBURG WI: The Lewis Nine Springs E-Way has been selected to receive a 2018 Great Places Wisconsin award from the American Planning Association Wisconsin chapter. 

Of the award, the jury commented: “The Lewis Nine Springs E-Way is unlike no other ‘great place.’ It’s unique in its own regard without taking away from the environmental amenities but including it in the design and placemaking. There are many opportunities for social interactions and education.” 

The Lewis Nine Springs E-Way is a seven mile environmental corridor envisioned by UW-Madison Professor of Landscape Architecture Phil Lewis.  Dane County dedicated the Nine Springs E-Way to Phil and Libby Lewis (Phil’s wife) in 2012 to recognize their many contributions to the Dane County Park System including Phil’s nationally acclaimed environmental corridor planning concept that would be the basis for creation of the Nine Springs E-Way, and Libby Lewis’ lifetime dedication to environmental advocacy including 26 years of service on the Dane County Park Commission.
