PUBLIC HEARING - REQUEST FOR ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS
1. 43525 711-719 Jenifer Street - Third Lake Ridge Historic District - Land Division of property. 6th Ald. Dist. Contact: Paul Spetz, Isthmus Surveying
From the staff report: The Elks intend to divide their existing lot to make two lots. One lot would contain all of the improvements related to the Elk's Lodge and the other lot would contain the historic residence. The lot being created for the historic residence is approximately 4000 square feet and has narrow frontage at the street with a depth that extends toward Lake Monona. This configuration is similar to other adjacent residential lots and maintains the general lot size pattern of the historic district.
Note there are two letters from nearby neighbors opposed to the proposed lot division which eliminates 711 Jenifer's access to the lake.

E.3. 44106 Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) Manual- The NTMP Objectives, Policies and Procedures.
From the legislative analysis: "The document has been modified to relax selection criteria and steps for disadvantage areas/neighborhoods. The changes were made in consultation with the City racial equity team....These changes are in addition to work being done with City Information Services to consider new ways to encourage participation, including mechanisms to survey people electronically for example via cell phone. This is to encourage greater participation in the process and should benefit all neighborhoods. "
This is the manual the city uses to review traffic calming.
