62. Amending the Common Council's Adopted School Crossing Protection Criteria.
>New criteria for adding and discontinuing school crossing guards.
72. Creating Section 12.138(14) of the Madison General Ordinances to reduce commuter parking impact and promote the use of off-street parking.
> The drafter's analysis: Multi-unit dwellings can place a strain on available residential parking. Some multi-unit dwellings offer off-street parking. Theoretically, this off-street parking should reduce the impact multi-unit dwellings have on the RP3 and commuter parking. However, residential off-street parking spaces do not minimize the impact of commuter parking unless the parking spaces are actually being used by residents. When residents do not utilize available off-street parking, they are creating a market for commuters to buy the off-street parking intended for residents. Once these spots are used for commuter parking, residents park on the street and essentially become a proxy for the commuter driving into the area. This ordinance could reduce commuter impact by decreasing the availability of "commuter proxies." It will encourage residents who live in large multi-unit dwellings to utilize the off-street parking available at their residence. This proposed subsection would limit RP3 eligibility for future developments approved for construction after the effective date of this ordinance. Residents who live in buildings approved for construction after that date will only be eligible to apply for RP3 if the dwelling has three units or less.
State law precludes the City from requiring that landlords notify tenants if their property is ineligible for RP3. Wis. Stat. § 66.0104(2)(d). Since the City cannot require landlords to inform tenants about RP3 ineligibility, the ordinance requires that the City Traffic Engineer and Parking Manager maintain an updated list of ineligible properties that can be accessed by the public. The City may also explore including RP3 ineligibility notification in the Landlord Best Practices Certification Program.
Introduction of NEW BUSINESS for referral
77. Amending Sec. 24.08(3)(d) of the Madison General Ordinances to clarify certain exemptions to the Noise Control Ordinance.
>This ordinance does not change the City's noise restrictions, it clarifies the existing exemption under Sec. 24.08(3)(d) to the noise control ordinance for "[o]utdoor gatherings, public dances, shows, and sporting and entertainment events for which a permit or license is required and obtained pursuant to Madison General Ordinances." The existing ordinance exempts certain events, such as events in parks where a park event amplification permit is required or events in the public right-of-way where a street use permit is required, from the noise restrictions set forth in Sec. 24.08. Noise controls on such events are set by those other permits and approvals. However, there has been some confusion by the public about these overlapping noise regulations and how such events may exceed the general noise regulations of Sec. 24.08. This ordinance amends the existing exception language to clearly state that these types of events are exempt from the noise restrictions of Sec. 24.08.
79. Creating Section 28.022-00217 of the Madison General Ordinances to change the zoning of property located at 1801 East Washington Avenue, 6th Aldermanic District, from IL (Industrial Limited) District to TE (Traditional Employment) District.
>Rezoning the Marling lumber site from Industrial to Traditional Employment to allow a mixed use building to be constructed on the site.
81. Amending Section 33.17 of the Madison General Ordinances to revise the membership and duties of the Economic Development Committee.
92. Authorizing the Madison Parking Utility to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for architectural and engineering services required to design an approximately 650-stall parking facility on the south east corner of the intersection of East Main Street and South Livingston Street
