6. 54198 929 E. Washington Avenue - New Development of a Commercial/Office Mixed-Use Building Located in UDD No. 8. 6th Ald. Dist. Owner: Archipelago Village, LLC Applicant: Doug Hursh, Potter Lawson, Inc. Informational Presentation
The developer is proposing to demolish 945 E Washington and 924 E Main St. See the app for photos and site plan.
I previously opposed demolition of 924 E Main at the Plan Commission when the developer did not have a concept plan for the entire block. The current submission is for phase 1 only. See page 13 of the submittal for what is proposed for phase 1 and page 14 for phase 2. The proposed demo and redevelopment of 924 E Main is part of phase 2. The timeline for phase 2 is unknown at this time. The developer previously received permission from Plan to demo buildings adjacent to and behind the Kleuter building and the new hotel is under construction, I supported those demolitions.
When this comes to Plan Commission, I will again ask for delay of demolition of the phase 2 buildings until the developers are ready to commence. I remain opposed to demo of 924 E Main. It contributes to the historic character of E Main St, especially with the nearby buildings at the Brearly intersection (Wisconsin Telephone building and 931 E Main home of Old Sugar Distillery, and former bus depot, now a business incubator owned by Common Wealth Development).

Madison's Arts Future: A Mayoral Candidate Forum
Hosted by Tone Madison and Art + Literature Laboratory
7-8:30p Barrymore Theater 2090 Atwood Ave
The arts play an essential role in Madison's identity, in the quality of Madisonian' lives, and in the local economy. Arts and culture nonprofits in Dane County provide $249.9 million in economic activity, according to a 2017 data analysis by Americans for the Arts. At the same time, Madison faces challenges in maintaining its role as a cultural center, providing adequate space for arts and music, and ensuring that creative people can afford to live in the city. That makes the arts an important part of the conversation when it comes to choosing Madison's elected leaders.
"Madison's Arts Future" is the only event during the course of the campaign that will focus exclusively on policy matters that impact the arts. Questions will touch on issues ranging from city-funded grants and initiatives to the need for more creative spaces in Madison. Katie Hutchinson, co-host of WORT-FM's Another Green World radio show and a Tone Madison contributor, and Brian Standing, host of WORT's Monday 8 O'clock Buzz talk program, will moderate the forum.
Free and open to the public. ADDITIONAL PARKING available at United Way and Kennedy Place.

Downtown Coordinating Committee
5:30p room 206 MMB
2. 53818 Creating Section 10.056(2)(f), amending Sections 10.056(6)(a), (b), (d), (i), (o), 10.056(11), and 10.056(12)(a) of the Madison General Ordinances creating and modifying the standards of issuance for street use permits, creating the Downtown Zone and authorizing policies for permits in that zone, and allowing a permit to be cancelled prior to an event in case of emergency.
Referred from 12-20 meeting
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance amendment creates a geographic area called the Downtown Zone for purposes of reviewing Street Use Permits for street closures for events, festivals, races, etc., in that zone. The Downtown Zone includes the core of the isthmus extending roughly from Blair to Park Streets, but excludes the Capitol Square, the 100 blocks off the square, and 200 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, where events are encouraged. This amendment will allow the Street Use Staff Commission to create rules for street closures in the Downtown Zone to consider impacts on traffic patterns, Metro Transit service, and residential, business and government occupants within that zone. This amendment also elaborates on the criteria for approving a street use permit, allowing the Staff Commission to consider the overall number of permitted events and other activities happening in the City when considering an application for a street use event. Currently the ordinance allows consideration of traffic impacts and the ability to provide police and other emergency services, and impacts on residents. The existing ordinance does not explicitly mention impacts on public transit, overall strain on city services, nor does it speak to the overlap of events over the course of a weekend. This amendment makes it explicit that the Commission may consider the following factors: size, location, route, duration of an event, as well as safety concerns articulated by the Police or Fire Department, significant impairment to traffic flow, Metro Transit service, or the provision of police, fire, or other emergency services. Those factors can be considered based on the proposed event itself or the combination of events or activities known to be occurring on the same day or same weekend. This amendment also clarifies the requirement for a Traffic Management Plan for closures of State Street that include closing Gorham, Johnson and Dayton-Fairchild Streets, and creates a new rule that John Nolen Drive cannot be completely closed for a Street Use Event unless it is a City-Sponsored event. Finally, this amendment clarifies that a permit for an event that has not yet started can be terminated by the Police or Fire Chief, upon consultation with the Superintendent of Parks, if termination is reasonable and necessary in the face of imminent danger or threat to public safety.
