16. Accepting the Public Market Implementation Strategy, directing City staff and the Local Food Committee to move forward with the Strategy's five Work Elements, and authorize city staff to issue Requests for Proposals for two of the Work Elements.
The Local Food Committee has been working diligently on the implementation strategy and recommends issuing two RFPs - one to seek consultants to assist with grants and new market tax credits applications and one to initiate a local fundraising strategy.
17. Authorizing the execution of an agreement to terminate the option rights with respect to Phase 6 at Union Corners provided to Gorman & Company in the Second Amendment to the the Purchase and Sale Agreement executed between the City of Madison and Gorman & Company.
Gorman and the city have agreed to terminate Gorman's option to purchase Phase 6, aka the studio building parcel, and allow the city to sell the parcel to a prospective buyer who will not have to meet the TIF terms that Gorman agreed to (land for $1 but grow the tax increment by $354K), instead the prospective buyer will pay cash based on the recently appraised value of the parcel.
33. Authorizing the execution of a Landscaping Maintenance Agreement with the Blair Street Gardens Committee, Inc., for access and maintenance purposes of two decorative garden areas at 603 East Wilson Street and 499 East Wilson Street.
The Blair St Gardens group has negotiated a formal landscaping maintenance agreement with the city for the two garden parcels BSG volunteers have informally maintained on city right of way and water utility land since 1985. Recently BSG requested and received permission to redesign the "Gateway Garden" which is almost complete. Kudos to all involved.
41. Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute agreements and the Finance Director to issue purchase orders to MG&E and Charter Communication for the undergrounding of overhead utilities along Atwood Avenue.
Overhead electrical and communication lines run along Atwood Avenue between Rusk Street and Division Street. Funds are included in the 2016 Engineering Major Streets Capital Budget for undergrounding of overhead utilities on Atwood Avenue using the half mile rule in TID 37. MG&E, Charter Communication and Madison Traffic Engineering will underground their overhead facilities and remove the poles along Atwood Avenue. The work is scheduled for the spring of 2016 in conjuction with the construction of the recently approved building at 2087 Atwood Avenue, located between Monty's Blue Plate Diner and United Way.
48. Authorizing a Material Change in the Phase Loan Agreement for Phases 3 and 4 of the Union Corners Development.
Gorman received WHEDA tax credits to develop two mixed use buildings on Winnebago (Phases 3 and 4) with a range of rental affordability. In order to meet WHEDA's criteria for a LIHTC/low income housing tax credit entity, the city must amend the terms of the Purchase and Sale agreement.

60. Creating Section 28.022 - 00228 and Section 28.022 - 00229 of the Madison General Ordinances to change the zoning of property located at 722 Williamson Street, 6th Aldermanic District, from TSS (Traditional Shopping Street) District to PD(GDP-SIP) (Planned Development (General Development Plan-Specific Implementation Plan) District.
This ordinance rezones property located at 722 Williamson Street from TSS to PD(GDP-SIP) District and approves a General Development Plan and Specific Implementation Plan to allow renovating existing Olds Seed Building to include 7,200 square feet of commercial space and 45 apartments and construct a new 96-unit apartment building with two levels of parking.
61. Amending Section 28.061 of the Madison General Ordinances to allow a hotel, inn, or motel as a conditional use in TSS Districts.
Currently the zoning code allows a hotel, inn or motel as a permitted use.
73. Amending the East Washington Avenue Capitol Gateway Corridor Plan to revise the land use recommendation for an approximately 2-acre site located on the south side of East Washington Avenue just east of the Yahara River to Community Mixed-Use.
An amendment to the East Washington Avenue Capitol Gateway Corridor Plan Proposed Land Use Map recommends that the northern portion of this block be developed with Community Mixed-Use, which is generally consistent with the mixed-use development proposed by the prospective developer of the Marling Lumber site 1801 E Washington and would broaden the potential for future land uses on the adjacent property to include similar uses, if and when it is redeveloped in the future.
The amendment will be at Plan Commission on March 21 and back to the Council on March 29.
