D6 Items of Interest Week of March 12, 2018
Highlights: The comprehensive plan update known as Imagine Madison will be the subject of a special Plan Commission meeting Monday. Public testimony is welcome. MNA has submitted extensive comments that address the proposed Future Land Use maps for the neighborhood. I've included a link to their document below. Many neighbors spent countless hours on this, thank you for your work. On Wednesday the Board of Parks Commissioners takes up the Confederate Monument in Forest Hill Cemetery. Central Park will be officially renamed McPike Park in a dedication ceremony at the park on Wednesday, April 4 at 3pm. All are invited to attend.
I am holding two neighborhood meetings this week. On Wednesday, you can find out about Mitchell Turino's proposal to open I/O Arcade Bar at 720 Williamson Street. On Thursday, come hear from Hanah Jon Taylor who is now considering changing the location of the Cafe CODA from 1222 Williamson St to 401 E Washinton. Such a change would require him to reapply for both a Class B Beer and Liquor License and an 18+ Center for Visual & Performing Arts License and go before the Alcohol License Review Committee and Common Council again for approval.

The BOARD OF PARK COMMISSIONERS is scheduled to consider this item on 3/14/2018.
21. 50738 Supporting a 2018-2022 Transportation Alternatives Program grant for the Garver Path project.
Fiscal note: The proposed resolution provides the required support to authorize the WisDOT Transportation Alternatives Grant for the Garver Path project on the City's East side. This project has not yet been explicitly included within Engineering Pedestrian & Bicycle capital improvement plan (CIP), but is anticipated to be incorporated into the next CIP request as a repurposing of the deferred Goodman Path project. If awarded, a separate resolution will authorize acceptance of the grant funds for the project. The Garver Path will connect to the existing Capital City Path at Sugar Avenue and will run northward approximately 2800 feet to Milwaukee Street where it will connect with future planned routes that will ultimately extend to Sun Prairie. The primary route of the Garver Path will connect Olbrich Park and O.B. Sherry Park while proposed secondary paths will better connect neighborhoods with parks and commercial areas. Three new developments are currently under way near the south terminus of the project that will increase the utility and use of the path. These projects include a commercial development and two mixed-use buildings, one of which includes affordable housing. The proposed path will have a 10-foot wide asphalt pavement with 2-foot wide grass shoulders on a crushed stone base and will include structural components in order to navigate waterways.?

27. 50837 Authorizing the Deferral of an $875,000 Equity Participation Payment for the Madison Mark Project in Execution of a Land Use Restriction Agreement to Maintain Affordable Units for an Additional Fifteen Years.
Fiscal Note: The proposed resolution terminates the TIF Loan to a Stone House Development affiliate for the Madison Mark Project located at 132 E Wilson Street and defers an $875,000 Equity Participation Payment to 2035. Stone House Development is refinancing the Project and requests the Equity Participation Payment be deferred in exchange for maintaining Affordable Units for 15 years. The TIF Loan has otherwise been repaid and all obligations outside of the Equity Participation Payment have been satisfied. The City will enter into a new land use restriction agreement with Stone House Development, which will remain in effect until 2035 and will require the Project to maintain the same affordability provisions as currently exist and require the Equity Participation Payment to be made in 2035. The Project is located in TID #25, which will close in 2022; this resolution will not affect that closing.
28. 50757 Authorizing the City's Economic Development Division to submit a grant application for $500,000 to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Idle Sites Grant program to fund infrastructure costs on the former Oscar Mayer site and authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to enter into a contract with WEDC to accept Idle Sites Grant funding if it is awarded and a Memorandum of Understanding with the new owners of the former Oscar Mayer site for the use of the funds.

Fiscal Note: The proposed resolution authorizes applying for a $250,000 grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Community Development Investment Grant program. The grant award will be transferred to the Owners of the former Mautz Paint site, located on the 1000 block of East Washington Avenue, to help fund infrastructure costs associated with the reuse of the Property. No City appropriation is required for the grant application. City costs associated with urban development of this area will be included in future operating and capital budgets subject to Common Council approval.

16 50854 Breese Stevens Facility Plan and Concession and Restroom Upgrade
In 2016, the Parks Division hired Isthmus Architecture to prepare a facility report for Breese Stevens Field. The report identified necessary maintenance improvements to the historic venue for the next 15 years. Previous studies reviewed specific aspects of the stadium but a comprehensive look at the overall facility was needed. In addition to long-term maintenance items, recommendations on potential operational improvements were identified with the assistance of the current operator, Big Top Events. Two primary operational deficiencies outlined were the lack of a commercial concession kitchen and permanent restroom facilities at the field elevation. The facility report was completed in 2017 and Parks is proposing the addition of a 3,780-gsf concession/restroom addition to the stadium. The proposed building addition was approved from the Wisconsin State Historical Society, the City of Madison Landmarks Commission and Urban Design Commission. The building project is currently scheduled for construction bidding in early 2018, with the majority of construction occurring during the 2018-19 event off-season. In addition to the new building, renovation of the historic 1925 stadium façade is part of the 2018 work.
