1. 52263 3241 Garver Green - An adjustment to the boundary for a landmark site to correspond to a previously approved land division for the Garver site; 6 th Ald. Dist.
2. 51828 2450 Atwood Avenue - Exterior Alteration to a Designated Madison Landmark; 6th Ald. Dist.
4. 52227 1353 Williamson St - Exterior Alteration in the Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald. Dist.
Issuing a certificate of appropriateness to fix damage to Ha Long Bay.
5. 51562 118-126 State St - Development Adjacent to a Designated Madison Landmark; 4th Ald. Dist.
The Applicant is proposing to develop four contiguous properties on State Street that also have frontages on West Dayton Street and North Carroll Street. One of those properties is adjacent to the Lamb Building, a designated landmark. The Lamb Building is a narrow building on an angled through lot with elevations on both State Street and North Carroll Street. Each elevation of the landmark building is viewed against the proposed development differently and will be described separately in this analysis. A different version of this project was reviewed by the Landmarks Commission on October 2, 2017 (Legistar 49062). Since that review, the buildings at 124 and 126 State were acquired and those sites have been incorporated into the project thus resulting in a larger overall development and a significantly changed appearance. The larger project was reviewed on May 14, 2018 (Legistar 51562) and the item was referred to a future meeting for action. The existing building at 118 State is adjacent to the Lamb Building along the Lamb Building's western property line that runs from State Street to North Carroll Street. The proposed development will maintain a portion of the buildings at 118 and 126 State while the entirety of the existing 6 story building at 122 State and the 2 story building at 124 State will be demolished.
The building at 118 was constructed in 1897 as the original location of the Mautz Brothers Paint Company. Mautz would later become one of Madison's largest industries. The Mautz Building was constructed before the adjacent landmark, Lamb Building. The Lamb Building is architecturally significant because it was designed by master architect, Louis Claude of the local architecture firm of Claude and Starck. The Lamb Building was constructed in 1905 in the Queen Anne style. The Lamb Building is also historically significant because the master architect had an office in the commercial building. The Lamb Building was designed with the Mautz Building (118 State) and the Wisconsin Building (102 State) as its neighbors. The three buildings have held the top of State Street since 1905. The Lamb Building has been flanked by period buildings that provide it an appropriate immediate context and the proposed development will change that context.
The recommendations relates to the two different street frontages. Regarding the State Street frontage, staff recommends that the Landmarks Commission find that the new development is large, but not so large or visually intrusive as to adversely affect the historic character and integrity of the primary façade of the adjoining landmark. Regarding the North Carroll frontage, staff recommends that the Landmarks Commission find that the new development is large, but is not so large or visually intrusive as to adversely affect the historic character and integrity of the secondary façade of the adjoining landmark.
6. 52224 Review of Klueter Grocery (901 E Washington Ave) National Register Nomination
National register nomination is the way for the developer to get historic preservation tax credits from the feds and state.
7. 52225 210 S Pinckney St (Judge Doyle Square) - Alteration to Planned Development Zoning Adjacent to a Designated Madison Landmark; 4th Ald. Dist.
The Applicant is proposing to construct a development adjacent to a designated landmark. The new development consists of a parking garage "podium" owned by the City with the potential to have a developer construct a mixed use development above the parking garage or to cap the parking garage. Because the use of the space above the parking garage podium is unknown, the Commission should review the drawings (Option A and Option B dated June 15, 2018) showing the parking garage podium only and provide a recommendation to the Plan Commission and Urban Design Commission. The Landmarks Commission understands that any future development above the parking garage podium and/or reskinning of the proposed parking garage podium will require Commission review. The proposed Option A and Option B are approximately 3 stories tall and are lower than the adjacent landmark building. While the proposed materials are not noted, it is assumed that the materials include limestone, horizontal metal grille panels, glass and metal storefront system, and clear glass and spandrel glass upper wall system. As a standalone building, these materials and their treatment seem appropriate for the podium. In the future, when a mixed use development is constructed above the podium, these materials and their treatment may not be appropriate with the proposed design. The limestone is complementary to the material of the landmark building and the horizontal limestone seems more appropriate as a treatment at the base of a building than the vertical limestone. The horizontal treatment also relates directly to the landmark building. The wrapping of the horizontal limestone at the corners of Option A relates the podium to the landmark building.
10. 49999 Buildings Proposed for Demolition
924 E Main St - Applicant: Curt Brink, Archipelago Village LLC Applicant's Comments: Owner seeks permission to demolish the vacant 1-story warehouse at 924 E. Main St. and a one-story brick warehouse in order to complete environmental remediation of the former Mautz Paint site. Staff Findings: The preservation file indicates the building was constructed in 1928 as the National Biscuit Company Warehouse and was designed by Edward Tough and built by George Cnare and Sons.

3. 51574 SUBSTITUTE Amending Sections 28.211, 28.032, 28.061, 28.072, 28.082, 28.091, and 28.151 of the Madison General Ordinances to allow free-standing vending on private property.
The substitute addresses the concerns I raised previously.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This substitute ordinance was necessary to substitute a new definition for freestanding vending, add technical requirements, and to change the use status in various zoning districts. Under this substitute ordinance, free-standing vending continues to be prohibited in all districts if located on a zoning lot containing residential uses. In non-residential districts, free-standing vending is a permitted use if it located more than 200 feet from the property line of a lot with a residential use and is a conditional use if located 200 feet or less from the property line of a lot with a residential use. The supplemental regulations also 1) set hours of operations, 2) set licensing and operations requirements, 3) require a City-approved site plan, 4) provide a 25-foot distance separation requirement between any free-standing vending operation and a brick and mortar restaurant or restaurant-tavern (unless specifically allowed by that business owner), and provide other regulations to be enforced by the Zoning Administrator. Finally, in adopting many of the same operational requirements contained in the street vending ordinance (Sec. 9.13, MGO) this ordinance ensures that the City is not creating a new class of vending carts in terms of cart size, noise requirements, and other aspects of on-street food vending cart. This ordinance will have the effect of allowing food carts on private property in many areas where they are currently prohibited and thus responds to a long-history of requests from employers and other business owners who wish to have more convenient access to food for their employees or customers
10. 52086 Approving Plans, Specifications and Schedule of Assessments for Winnebago Street, Atwood Avenue and Linden Avenue Assessment District - 2018. (6th AD)
This is Option 1B. The stretch between Schenk's Corners and 4th St has been tweaked to improve bike safety in this commercial block. Bumpouts have extended to add more opportunities to plant street trees which does reduce some parking but overall parking remains on both sides of Winnebago. Regarding the issue of corridor planning, staff assures me that this plan accounts for the work that the neighborhood design group worked on for Schenk's Corners and promises that we will plan the section from Thornton to Schenks Corridor to make sure bike safety and paths are enhanced.

1. 51819 Creating Sections 25.18 and 25.17(10) and amending Section 1.08(3)(a) of the Madison General Ordinances to regulate the use of drones and establish a bond schedule for violations thereof. Attachments: Body NEW BUSINESS/ACTION ITEM
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This proposal adopts certain provisions of state law relating to the regulation of drones, and creates civil forfeitures for violations of the provisions. This proposal prohibits the operation of a weaponized drone except by military personnel acting in their official capacity, based on Wis. Stat. § 941.292. It prohibits the use of a drone to photograph, record or otherwise observe a person in a location where the person has a reasonable expectation of privacy, except by a law enforcement officer authorized under Wis. Stat. § 175.55(2), and is based on Wis. Stat. § 942.10. This proposal also adopts a provision of state law, Wis. Stat. § 114.04, which makes it unlawful to land a spacecraft or aircraft on the lands of another, without the person's consent, and makes it unlawful to fly a spacecraft or aircraft so low as to interfere with the existing use of the lands or water, or flying a spacecraft or aircraft so to be imminently dangerous or damaging to persons or property lawfully on the lands or water beneath.
2. 52042 Creating Sec. 12.177 of the Madison General Ordinances to establish a City of Madison motor vehicle registration fee. Attachments: Motor Vehicle Registration Fee Fact Sheet
Fiscal Note: This ordinance authorizes a local vehicle registration fee as allowed under state law. A $17 fee is anticipated to raise $3.3 million on an annual basis (based on information from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation that there are approximately 194,000 eligible vehicles registered in the City of Madison). Proceeds from a local vehicle registration fee must be used for transportation purposes. Use of the revenues from a local vehicle registration fee requires appropriation by the Common Council through a resolution (e.g., the budget). The state vehicle registration fee is $75 annually. Dane County recently enacted a local vehicle registration fee of $28, effective October 1, 2018. The County fee applies to all eligible vehicles in the county, including eligible vehicles in the City of Madison. A $17 fee levied by the City of Madison would result in a total vehicle registration fee in the City of $120.

The site is currently zoned Planned Development (PD). The development would house approximately 13,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space to be used by the non-profit childcare facility as well as 48 units of affordable housing (approximately 45,000 square feet). There would also be green space, a rooftop terrace, a 6,000 square foot playground and 30 underground parking stalls.

52318 Research Proposal regarding Electric Utility Lines and Street Trees
Prepared in 2017 by Jeremy Kane (Urban Tree Alliance) and John Harrington (UW-Madison Dept. of Landscape Architecture) for a grant application to the Tree Fund and general fundraising. This is document is now presented for review and reference by the Urban Forestry Task Force.
There is significant opportunity, and need, to consider how the urban canopy can be integrated into complex infrastructure systems projects into order to maximize canopy value. Aging urban infrastructures such as roads, storm and sewer lines, and electric transmission systems will be increasing in need of replacement, nationwide. Likewise, naturally aging urban trees and acute management crises like the Emerald Ash Boer mean that canopy resources need consistent renewal. By establishing a method of cost-benefit analysis that integrates the value of large, diversified urban canopies into project planning, outcomes will reflect the considerable eco-service benefits of urban trees.
