The Dane County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution formally approving the new supervisory boundary map at the Nov. 18 meeting. The map takes into consideration population shifts as recorded in the 2020 census. The new boundaries will be in place for the next 10 years, until the next census.

A new report from Porch.com examining home prices in the United States shows that the median home price in Dane County has risen by 14.1% since last year. It is now at $352,640. The average home price in Waunakee, according to information in the village’s budget documents, is $374, 396. The report notes that the U.S. median price increased by 17.7% in the same time period.


I hope that people will finally come to realize that there is only one “race” – the human race – and that we are all members of it.
