99. 48040 SUBSTITUTE - Amending the 2017 Adopted Capital Budget to appropriate

$200,000 in GO Borrowing for the renovation of the Park Edge Park Ridge

Neighborhood Center.

From:   Jim O'Keefe

Re:       Legistar File 48040 – Amending the 2017 Capital Budget for the renovation of the Park Edge Park Ridge Neighborhood Employment Center

On August 1st, the Common Council is scheduled to take up Resolution 48040, to amend the 2017 Capital Budget to authorize an additional $200,000 for the renovation of property at 1233 McKenna Boulevard that was purchased by the City for use as the site of the Park Edge Park Ridge Neighborhood Employment Center. The project was originally authorized in the 2016 budget at $1 million.

The need for additional funds is based on three factors summarized in the table below and explained in great detail beneath.

 

 
 

 

 

*Amendment amount rounded up from $140k for unanticipated expenditures related to Park Edge/Park Ridge & Theresa Terrace

 

 

  1. The most significant factor is new information regarding the project is the cost estimates provided by Dorschner Associates, the consulting firm retained by CDD.Dorschner developed project specifications that reflect resident input on facility use and design details gathered through three neighborhood meetings. In contrast, the original project budget, upon which the 2016 budget was based, was offered without the benefit of professional or neighborhood input.

    Dorschner's estimated cost for the project totals $1,025,000.  The largest portion of this estimate ($885,000) is for construction, including a contingency reserve.  The balance includes costs associated with architectural design fees, including plan review, survey and permit fees; and furnishings, fixtures and equipment.

  1. The second factor affecting project budget is the added costs of three items that were not anticipated in the original estimate, and not addressed in Dorschner's numbers.Together they add nearly $100,000 to the project budget.They include:

    Charges for services performed by City staff, primarily by Engineering and Real Estate staff – approximately $52,000.About half of these costs have already been charged against the project budget.

    1. Wage and benefit costs associated with utilizing one or more neighborhood residents to work on the project – up to $34,000. Though this feature is not required, City staff, neighborhood residents, the Urban League (the facility operator), and the district alder believe it is important to include. The estimate assumes up to 1040 hours of work and is based on wage and benefit rates supplied by the Urban League for an entry level helper position – up to $34,000

    2. Miscellaneous expenses, namely the payment of 2015 property taxes ($7,700) and the cost of demolition work at the site ($1,700).Total cost - $9,400).

       

  2. The last factor affecting the project budget is that the original $1 million that was authorized has been reduced by a series of charges unrelated to the Park Edge Park Ridge project.These charges total about $20,000.   These charges relate to expenses incurred to address issues at the Theresa Terrace and the Meadowridge neighborhood centers.Heretofore, there has been a single Neighborhood Center line in the CDD capital budget.With no other source available from which to pay for facility expenses at these City-owned/leased centers, costs for repairs and/or improvements have been charged against funds authorized for the Park Edge Park Ridge project.They include, for example, charges to address sewer system problems at Meadowridge, to pave a driveway at Theresa Terrace and to address electrical and noise reduction issues at Theresa Terrace.

    In addition, CDD and Engineering staff are currently assessing vandalism damage to windows and siding at the Theresa Terrace facility that will require repair.  There is no budget provision for these expenses.

    Taken together, these three factors - professionally prepared construction estimates that project a cost of $1,025,000 to renovate and furnish the center; the emergence of additional costs related to the Park Edge Park Ridge center that are not included in the Dorschner estimates ($95,400); and the use of about $20,000 of the $1 million Park Edge Park Ridge project budget to cover expenses unrelated to that project – have increased project costs to $1,120,400 and reduced available funds by $20,000, causing a funding gap of just over $140,000.  Needed repairs at Theresa Terrace will widen that gap a bit more.    

The request to amend the 2017 Adopted Capital Budget to increase borrowing by up to $200,000 for Neighborhood Centers will provide sufficient funds to complete the Park Edge Park Ridge project, as well as address the damage to the Theresa Terrace center.  Moving forward neighborhood center projects will be budgeted as standalone projects to allow for closer cost monitoring.

FROM: Alder Barbara Harrington-McKinney, District 1

RE: Amendment to Legislative File No. 47681 – High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan Amendment as a supplement to the City of Madison Comprehensive Plan – Removing the Jeffy Trail Extension from the High Point-Raymond NDP

Dear Colleagues,

At the August 1, 2017, Common Council meeting, you will have before you Resolution File No. 47681, adoption of an amendment to the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan as a supplement to the City of Madison Comprehensive Plan. This amendment to the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan recommends Jeffy Trail be extended to Raymond Road.

The Planning Division submitted a High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan Summary Draft to the "Plan" outlining 10 bullet points. I call your attention to the following four:

.. Revised internal street networks to improve connectivity and access to neighborhood destinations.

.. Changed the recommended future land use of developable areas at the Five Points intersection and Meriter property to Employment-Office.

..Re-established sections of Raymond and Midtown Roads that were previously planned to be vacated.  

..Maintain the Jeffy Trail extension to Raymond Road.

The discussion of the Jeffy Trail extension has dominated the important considerations of the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan (The Plan).

1. Long Range Transportation Planning Committee – June 22, 2017

"..to recommend adoption of Resolution ID 47681, and to specifically remove the extension of Jeffy Trail." That motion passed 4-2.

2. Pedestrian Bicycle Motor Vehicle Commission – June 26, 2017

Again, discussion centered on the extension of Jeffy Trail. Grant Foster, Susan DeVos and Ald. Skidmore stated their opposition to the extension. No vote taken as this was an informational presentation.

3. Board of Park Commissioners – July 12, 2017

Parks staff offered the following comment: RETURN TO LEAD WITH THE July 31, 2017 Page 2

F:\Cncommon\councildocs\1\073117 Jeffy Trail Memo D1.doc

RECOMMENDATION FOR APPROVAL TO THE PLAN COMMISSION with the following comment: (see Page 9 – Old Mid Town Road. Replace paragraph.)

The board also discussed Jeffy Trail, and voted to amend the recommendation to remove Jeffy Trail.

4. Sustainable Madison Committee – July 16, 2017

The majority of the discussion focused on Jeffy Trail. The Committee voted to recommend approval without the Jeffy Trail extension.

The topic of Jeffy Trail has dominated the discussion of the "Plan." Staff has repeatedly stated that the "Plan" is about more than Jeffy Trail. However, Jeffy Trail has been the central discussion at every presentation about the "Plan."

Please consider the following:  The fear of setting A PRECEDENT:

Cul-de-Sacs shall not be used in any street layout, unless the topography or other unique physical feature of a development makes cul-de-sacs the only, or most logical, street layout.

Where cul-de-sacs are determined to be necessary, a sidewalk, connecting path or multi-use path shall be provided to connect to another public right of way UNLESS TOPOGRAPHY OR OTHER PHYSICAL FEATURES MAKE THIS CONNECTION IMPOSSIBLE.

In 2013, when the Plan Commission and City Council approved the Wolfe Addition to Hawks Creek subdivision, the last parcel to connect Jeffy Trail to Raymond Road, they did not find topography or other unique physical features that would necessitate a cul-de-sac on Jeffy Trail.

However, the City made substantial improvement and investment in this area. Taxpayer dollars were expended for these improvements. Yes, the residents have enjoyed and become accustomed to those amenities.

The residents who live in the area surrounding Jeffy Trail have been consistent in their resolve not to have the Jeffy Trail extension. Yes, there was a very robust community engagement into the overall process of amending the "Plan."

On December 6, 2016, the Common Council adopted Resolution 16-00923 (File No. 44595), authorizing the Planning Division to amend the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan. The amendment to this resolution would adopt the amendment to the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Plan as a supplement to the City of Madison Comprehensive Plan.

I submit for your consideration the approval of the Amendment to the High Point-Raymond

Neighborhood Development Plan without the Jeffy Trail extension, for the following reasons:

The City of Madison Comprehensive Plan was created to guide City planning, and while Planning Staff is basing its recommendation for the extension of Jeffy Trail on one goal in the Comprehensive Plan regarding automobile connectivity, there are multiple other goals in the Comprehensive Plan that, given the unique circumstances and impacts of the proposed Jeffy Trail extension, collectively outweigh the minimum benefit of the automobile connectivity of this local street connection, including: fostering neighborhood.

involvement in all development decisions that will impact the neighborhood, preserving natural areas with outstanding ecological and aesthetic qualities, designing neighborhoods to create memorable places for people at a human-scale to create a strong sense of place and community, and fostering the creation of engaging places and physically attractive neighborhoods, each with a distinct sense of place.

? The City's Long Range Transportation Planning Committee, the Board of Park Commissioners and the Sustainable Madison Committee have recommended that the Jeffy Trail extension be removed from the Raymond-High Point Road Neighborhood Development Plan.

? There is overwhelming neighborhood opposition to the extension of Jeffy Trail with 420 residents representing 80% of all single family homes in the District 1 neighborhood intended to be served by the local street extension signing a letter opposing the extension of Jeffy Trail and the extension is opposed by the Madison West Neighborhood Association.

? Traffic projections by the Madison Area Transportation Planning Board (MPO) show that the Jeffy Trail extension is not a priority for the functioning of the neighborhood as it projected traffic counts utilizing Jeffy Trail to be less than 1,000 cars per day including existing and new traffic (which is the smallest MPO measure possible) and projected that only 11% of trips where the neighborhood is an origin or destination would use the Jeffy Trail extension.

? The removal of the Jeffy Trail extension from the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan will have minimal, if any, impact on the other transportation, utility, City services including Madison Metro and Police and Fire protection and housing/commercial development and densities presented in the High Point-Raymond Neighborhood Development Plan.

? The neighborhoods dispute the Planning Department conclusion that it could find norouting or potential generators of non-local "cut through" traffic and are concerned about potential "cut through" traffic resulting from the use of Jeffy Trail to avoid the congestion currently occurring (particularly in the morning and evening) when traveling north or south on South High Point Road or East or West on Raymond Road and Mid Town Road as a result of those arterials not being connected.

? The natural area that the extension would traverse was zoned Conservancy by the Common Council in 2013 and the National Ice Age Scenic Trail and the Ice Age Junction and Jeffy Trail bike paths (and the completion of the pedestrian/bicycle bridge over Hwy. PD/McKee Road) provide important walking/biking connections between the adjacent neighborhoods and within the Raymond-High Point Road Neighborhood Plan boundaries and should be sustained to provide a reason and opportunity to live in a neighborhood that values a connectivity that does not include, or for that matter, need the proposed motor vehicle access.

? The removal of the Jeffy Trail extension will eliminate an estimated $560,000 future capital budget expense for the construction of the extension
