Certificate of appropriateness for land divisions - 3706 Nakoma Road

Thank you to those who have reached out to provide feedback regarding 3706 Nakoma Road.  Please continue to send your inquiries and feedback to & cc me at

Purpose of the upcoming meeting:

For the Landmark Commission's purposes, the review of the project is based on MGO 41.18(4):

"Land Divisions and Combinations. The commission shall approve a certificate of appropriateness for land divisions, combinations, and subdivision plats of landmark sites and properties in historic districts, unless it finds that the proposed lot sizes adversely impact the historic character or significance of a landmark, are incompatible with adjacent lot sizes, or fail to maintain the general lot size pattern of the historic district."

About the location & application:

Here is a summary of the information gathered after talking with staff and reading the owner's application:

  • the parcel currently contains two lots
  • the request is to create two separate parcels while enlarging the western lot by adjusting the lot line
  • two mounds were excavated years ago, and the human remains, and grave goods were on display in the Capitol but were destroyed during the Capitol fire
  • since the property is located within the boundary of the previously desecrated burial site, the State requires a Request to Disturb permit prior to any ground-disturbing activities
  • the applicant is required by the State to complete an initial archaeological survey of the property to determine the likelihood of archaeological resources or human remains
  • research and shovel testing was completed and did not find anything in these already highly disturbed soils, see Legistar 72243 Application
  • the survey suffices for securing a Request to Disturb permit from the State

Additional Information:

The Preservation Planner will be recommending an excavation of the proposed building envelope on the western lot/parcel with archaeological monitoring and a filed report to the Wisconsin Historical Society and the City of Madison.

After Landmarks Commission, this would go through a standard CSM process for adjusting the lot line between the two lots contained within the existing parcel. The new parcel would have the TR-C1 zoning of the adjacent parcels, which is single-family residential.
