INTRODUCTION: The Maple Bluff Country Club (MBCC), with support from the Village of Maple Bluff, will be hosting the 9-10-year-old preliminaries for the 2021 All-City Swim Meet. This will be a significantly reduced event in comparison to the 2017 All-City Swim meet. MBCC is anticipating 400-500 swimmers with an additional 1000 spectators on Friday afternoon with competitions scheduled to begin at 1:00pm. This packet of information is intended to inform you about the event, the preparation event organizers have done to host this event and suggestions that you can take to minimize the impact to you.
EVENT: All-City Swim is attended by 13 swim clubs from around the greater Madison Area. Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, six pools were selected as host sites in 2021 event. MBCC was chosen to host the 9-10-year-old category on July 30th, 2021. MBCC, Beach Park, and the surrounding streets in Maple Bluff will be converted to a small, but organized, venue to manage all the competitors as well as our residents, the spectators, vehicles, volunteers, coaches and staff needed to support this event. You are an important part of our concern regarding this event!
MBCC & the Village anticipate additional activity occurring in the Village beginning Friday morning around 10:00am, with the preliminaries beginning at 1:00pm. With no weather concerns, the event should begin to clear out beginning at 6:00pm.

TRAFFIC PLAN & PARKING For efficiency of vehicular movement, safety, and maximum parking capacity, Fisk Place, Woodland Circle, Kensington Drive and Cambridge Road will be transformed to ONE WAY streets.
PLAN Because of our narrow roadways, we would be limited to parking on one side of the street if we had traffic moving in both directions. By going to ONE WAY streets, it allows cars to park on both sides of the street and traffic is easier to manage. We need to make sure all pedestrians are as safe as possible.
We will need to accommodate approximately 600 cars parking in the Village. If you are going to the event, it would be best to leave your car at home and walk or ride your bike to the event.
Attached to this document is the Traffic & Parking Plan Map. This map has been made available to all of the swim clubs. You should review the Map and plan your route in and out of the Village based upon the traffic plan and your proximity within the Village. If you have questions about this map and the traffic or parking plan, do not hesitate to contact the Village Center to talk with a staff member about your concerns or the best route for you to consider as you move about the Village.
To assist in the overall traffic flow for this event, we respectfully request that you instruct your residential service providers such as Landscape Companies, Construction Contractors, Housekeepers, or similar service providers to NOT come to the Village on the date of this event.
VILLAGE SERVICES During the All-City Swim event, Village Services will be mostly available for residents. Here is what you can expect from each Village Department:
