Welcome to the Town of Springdale

Located in southwestern Dane County, WI southwest of the City of Madison between the City of Verona and
the Village of Mount Horeb

Residing on the eastern edge of southwestern Wisconsin's driftless (unglaciated) area, Springdale's topography is varied with rolling hills and attractive valleys hosting natural springs that feed some of the finest trout streams in the State. The thirty-six square mile area of Springdale lies within the Upper Sugar River Watershed.

The mixture of open fields and woodlands provides a habitat for deer, turkey, pheasant, and other game. The abundant natural resources and magnificent scenic vistas create a wonderful area for people to live and pursue a variety of activities.

We are encouraging voters to go online at myvote.wi.gov and request an absentee ballot. The information will be forwarded to the Town of Springdale, and absentee ballots will be mailed to your homes. Please tell your friends, neighbors and relatives about the availability of absentee voting.
The Town Hall will also be open for early voting every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and two Saturdays, March 21 and March 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by appointment. If you choose to vote early, think about bringing your own pen (black ink only). It cannot be a gel pen or Sharpee.

Dear Springdale Landowners, Plan Commission and Town Board Members,

In acknowledgement of the Dane County Emergency Management social distancing recommendation in response to the Coronavirus, the Town of Springdale shall postpone the upcoming March 23, 2020 regular meeting of the Springdale Plan Commission. A number one priority of the Springdale Town Board is the protection of the public good. With so many variables and unknowns in our country’s fight against the spread of the virus, we believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Therefore, with the understanding that it is the goal of the Town to take action on citizen and landowner agenda items as efficiently as possible, we are researching the legal ways to conduct a public meeting to meet the open meeting law and protect everyone’s health. The Town will reschedule this meeting and schedule future meetings when we are told by experts the safe way to conduct all public meetings. We will do our best to keep you informed via the Town website and Town-wide email distribution list.
Your understanding, patience and compliance with the social distancing recommendations is appreciated. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound.
