Meeting and Event Highlights for the Week of May 16, 2022

May 13, 2022 4:24 PM

Meetings

  • Metro is holding a final public meeting on its network redesign on Thursday, May 19, at 6pm. The meeting will be held in person in Room 215 of the Madison Municipal Building (215 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.), and it will also be streamed live. People watching from home will be able to submit questions through a button on Mediasite so that they can be answered live during the meeting. Complete meeting details are here.
  • The Planning Division, in collaboration with Zoning staff, is working to implement a 2018 Comprehensive Plan call for implementation of "TOD overlay zoning" along planned bus rapid transit and other high-frequency transit corridors to "create development intensity minimums, reduce parking requirements, and support transit use." For more information, and to sign up for the May 16 public meetings on this effort, please visit the project web page.
  • The Finance Committee will discuss the Resource Recovery Special Charge and get an overview of City agency 2023 Capital Budget requests at its virtual meeting on Monday, May 16, at 4:30pm.
  • The Transportation Policy and Planning Board will discuss the Metro Network Redesign Plan at its virtual meeting on Monday, May 16, at 5pm.
  • For information about additional City meetings scheduled for this week, please consult the City Meeting schedule.

Events

  • Monona Terrace's 2022 Art on the Rooftop public sculptures are now on exhibit on Olin Terrace and the William T. Evjue Rooftop Gardens. The exhibit began as an outdoor pilot project in 2014 to help showcase the rooftop as another "must see" Madison destination. It has since become an annual program with artwork changing each year. Read more here.

Announcements

  • Metro has posted a survey to try and gather more information on how the proposed redesign may affect those with disabilities and senior riders. The direct link to the survey is here. The survey can also be found on Metro's redesign website. For those that would like to provide responses over the phone, you can call (608) 266-4466. Metro is going to take responses on the survey through Friday, May 27. You can also just send feedback by emailing MetroRedesign@cityofmadison.com.
  • The Streets Division will be performing a final yard waste collection. Yard waste needs to be placed at the curb by Sunday, May 15. Crews will begin that final sweep through neighborhoods starting the work week following May 15. By performing this last chance collection, other work by the Streets Division will be slowed. Fixing potholes, collection of roadside debris, and doing some hand sweeping and other manual labor around traffic island maintenance will all be slowed down or temporarily halted until the final sweep is complete. Brush collection will also be affected as collection for that may slow down some. Streets will be able to remain on schedule, but it may take an extra day or so to get through the entire collection round. Once the final sweep is done, Streets has to stop yard waste collection so they can get back to these duties. (Road repair is of particular importance because they need time to fill potholes before Engineering performs their chip sealing work.) The drop-off sites remain available for those who miss this last chance pickup. The drop-off sites are different this year, so please check the Streets Division website before loading your car.
  • A proposed Planning Framework was introduced at the Common Council on Tuesday, May 10. It will simplify and standardize the City's sub-area planning and make it more equitable. The Planning Division will focus on 13 higher-level "Area Plans" covering the entire City. These will be updated every 10 years, and be considered the guiding plan for future land use and infrastructure investment. The City currently has nearly 70 adopted sub-area plans with a wide variety of content, all of which will be considered as a new Area Plan is created. Each Area Plan process will provide an opportunity to consider older sub-area plans for potential retirement, as outlined on page 126 of the Comprehensive Plan. The proposed Framework will be reviewed by multiple City committees. Quick Overview and Deeper Dive Review Materials:
    • 8-minute video recording of the presentation staff will share with boards, committees and commissions reviewing this proposal in the coming weeks.
    • Links to detailed materials from the 1.5 year process to develop the Planning Framework, which involved close coordination with Plan Commission and City agencies: March 24, 2022 Plan Commission meeting materials, video; December 14, 2020 and July 8, 2021 Plan Commission meeting materials, 2020 video, 2021 video 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact: Brian Grady, Principal Planner, bgrady@cityofmadison.com or Linda Horvath, Planner IV, at lhorvath@cityofmadison.com.

  • Registration for "Make Music Madison" closes on May 25 at 11:59 PM. Learn more here.

Save the Date

  • The City of Madison, in partnership with Sustain Dane  and Neighborhood Food Solutions, is happy to announce the return of food scraps recycling. Individuals may take certain allowable food scraps to a designated drop-off booth at the South Madison Farmer's Market beginning on Tuesday, June 14. This is the first of two drop-off locations that will be announced. The second location will be announced at a later date. Learn more here.
