7/13 Homeless Day Resource Center Meeting at MGE Annex 7p

July 3, 2016 10:04 PM


Dear neighbors-

You are invited to attend a neighborhood meeting Wednesday July 13 at the MGE Annex 601 Railroad St, room A106 from 7-9p to discuss the County's proposal for the Homeless Day Resource Center. 


I am inviting Dane County Supervisors Mary Kolar (First Settlement neighborhood), John Hendrick (615 E Washington Ave) and Heidi Wegleitner (District 2); and County and City staff. A postcard notice will be sent to nearby residents and property owners.


On June 16, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi announced that Dane County has an 
accepted offer to purchase the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce building at 615 E Washington for the purposes of siting a homeless day resource center. The County's offer of $1.75 million was accepted by the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

County Board resolution to purchase 615 E Washington is moving through committees. It still needs to go to the City County Homeless Issues Committee July 6 6:30p in room 354 City County Building and Personnel and Finance July 11 at 5:30p in room 351 CCB. The goal is to have it on the County Board agenda for final approval July14 at 7p in room 201 CCB. It is possible that the center could be open this fall with the final renovations happening next year.

The facility is envisioned to be a full service facility. According to the County Exec's press release, the day resource center will include space for providers to meet confidentially with individuals and families and connect them to community services, including employment and training, permanent housing, economic assistance, legal services, health care, mental health services, and alcohol and other drug addiction treatment. The facility is also intended to provide for basic needs that are critical to many individuals and families experiencing homelessness, such as private, accessible showers, storage space for personal items, laundry facilities, meals, space to stay cool or keep warm, and access to  haircuts, a kitchen, and food storage. 


The extent of operational services will be dependent on County funding in partnership with the City and the United Way. In April, representatives from the three bodies meet and wrote a draft concept paper to try to provide a realistic budget and goals. The draft plan shows a gap in funding but there are resolutions at both the County and City levels to commit to fully funding the facility in the 2017 operating budget and beyond.  http://file:///C:/Users/Owner/Downloads/DRAFT%204%20-%2011%20Day%20Resource%20Center%20Concept%20Paper.pdf

On June 24, the County issued an RFP seeking a service provider for the facility, It is available at http://www.danepurchasing.com (go to RFPs and bids, RFP #116065). Once a service provider is selected, they will work with County staff, neighbors, partner agencies, and electeds to produce a management plan. A management plan is required and must be approved by the City of Madison Plan Commission. This plan will identify the program and amenities for the site. Your participation and engagement will help shape the final plan. Expect more meetings to be organized once the provided is selected to work on the details and address concerns. 

In 2014, the City Council amended the zoning code to define Daytime Shelters and make them a conditional use, see MGO Section 28.151. The Plan Commission reviews and approves all conditional uses. Conditional uses do not go to the Common Council. The ordinance defines the elements of the management plan.

I look forward to seeing you on the 13th.

Marsha
