Lamp House Block Ad Hoc Committee Report Released

Lamp House Block Ad Hoc Committee Report Released

The final report of the Lamp House Block Ad Hoc Committee can be found here:

The Madison Council created the Lamp House Block Ad Hoc Committee to advise the Plan Commission and Common Council about an appropriate vision and special area plan for the Lamp House block.

This is the block bounded by N. Webster, E. Mifflin, N. Butler and E. Washington.  It has a 1903 Frank Lloyd Wright house in the center of the block which is known as the Lamp House.  A piecemeal approach to block development is not optimum.

The Committee did an impressive job of considering the various competing issues related to this important heritage block.  The staff provided outstanding support which allowed the Committee to complete their work quickly.  The Committee included representation from the neighborhood, from the development community, as well as people familiar with the history of Madison and architecture.  Also on the Committee and providing excellent insights were alders Denise DeMarb and Mike Verveer.  Chair Nan Fey, as former chair of the Plan Commission was an outstanding leader in helping to move the analysis and report forward. I'm appreciative of the work they did.

The dates Lamp House Block Ad Hoc Committee Report will be considered and the committees to which it has been referred are:

February 3, 2014: Landmarks Commission
February 5, 2014: Urban Design Commission
February 10, 2014:  Plan Commission
February, 25, 2014: Common Council (anticipated)

Interested neighbors and stakeholders are welcome to any of the committees to listen or to provide comments.
