126 Langdon Proposal

Hub II Proposal on Langdon Denied by Plan Commission
 
Core Spaces proposal for an apartment building at 126 Langdon St. with 107 units, 376 bedrooms, and 20 parking stalls was denied by Plan Commission at their July 27 meeting. The vote was 7-1 to "place on file without prejudice". While I made the motion to deny the requested Conditional Uses and Demolition Permit, I chose not to move to "place on file" which would have prevented the developer from submitting another application for a one-year period.
 
Since my motion was made "without prejudice", Core Spaces could submit a new application within the next year. Given the vote margin of 7-1, it is unlikely that they will do so without some substantial changes to the aspects of the proposal that were cited by Plan Commissioners as rationale for rejecting it. Many commissioners expressed a dislike of the large massing and width of the front facade and most seemed unimpressed with the proposal's inability to minimize the negative impacts of the site circulation (delivery vehicle parking, etc.) on neighbors. The developers could also appeal the Plan Commission's decision to Common Council, but that seems unlikely given the 7-1 vote. This site on Langdon Street should be redeveloped, likely with dense housing appealing to students, so I'll keep you posted if Core Spaces or other developers should make a proposal.
 
Metro Bus
 
Metro Rider Update: Increased Service Plan
 
Starting Sunday, August 23, Metro will increase its level of service. Due to budget constraints and staffing limitations, Metro is not able to return to the same level of service that was provided earlier in the year. Schedule details available here.
 
Public Works

Curious About Madison's Public Works Contracts?
If you are wondering about which city public works projects are open for bidding to contractors; which contractors are bidding and for how much, and which projects are underway or coming up, visit this website. All recent public works projects are listed, including the E. Gorham Street sanitary sewer replacement, the E. Dayton Street reconstruction, two projects at Gates of Heaven in James Madison Park, and the acoustic tile installation at the Tenney Park Shelter.
 
Census 2020
 
Low Response Rate in District 2 for 2020 Census
 
Due to the impact of COVID-19, the deadline for filling out the 2020 Census has been extended to Oct. 31. That is a good thing for District 2 because we are lagging compared to most of Madison. Check out this map and website to see how we need our response rate to go up. Also, some Republicans in Washington are threatening to end the Census prior to Oct. 31, so completing it now is crucial.
 
College Students Can Use Madison Residency For the Census
Census Bureau officials say students living away from home should be counted at their on-campus or off-campus college address, even if coronavirus has temporarily sent them to stay with their parents or elsewhere. Where you lived on Census Day, April 1, 2020, is what counts, so if you had a dorm room or apartment in Madison on Census Day, even though you may have temporarily been staying elsewhere, your census residence is Madison. 
 
Fill out the census over the phone, by mail or online at my2020census.gov.
 
Street Division
 
Madison Moving Days: Special Collections and Other Details
 
On August 14th and 15th leases for most downtown area apartments end. That means thousands of residents will be moving all at the same time. Every year, the August move out generates over 1 million pounds of material into the landfill. We can do better. Before you landfill it, donate it, or sell it online, or best yet, move it with you. Watch this video for more information about Moving Days.
 
Refuse and Recycling Pickup Daily August 3 to 14
The Streets Division will empty refuse and recycling carts in the downtown moving area every day between August 3 through August 14. The downtown moving area includes all of District 2 west of the Yahara River.
 
Reminder: Some Parking Restrictions Remain Suspended
 
The Madison Parking Division is continuing the current suspension of some posted restrictions in non-metered parking areas and fee reductions in City parking garages.
 
Non-metered parking restrictions temporarily suspended citywide:
 
  • Street sweeping (Clean Streets-Clean Lakes Program) restrictions, including on Thursday & Friday mornings downtown
  • 1-hour and 2-hour time-limits in non-metered areas
  • Residential Permit Only areas

$5 daily maximum fee in all City-owned public-parking garages:

  • Temporary $5 daily maximum fee in all City-owned public parking garages and Brayton Lot.
  • The first hour of parking is free on Saturdays.

All other on-street metered and non-metered parking restrictions are in effect and enforceable. Current information about Madison parking and any future service changes can be found here.

"WHEREAS, the City's participation would be through an amicus curiae ("friend of the court") brief prepared by the City of New York, in collaboration with Mayors Against LGBTQ Discrimination, on behalf of local governments in support of the City of Philadelphia in the Fulton case. Fulton will be heard by the United States Supreme Court this fall. At stake is whether Philadelphia is required to continue to contract with a faith-based foster care agency that refuses to work with same-sex couples, despite Philadelphia's nondiscrimination policies, ordinance and contract provisions. There are several important legal questions that go beyond the issues of sexual orientation discrimination and religion, potentially impacting the ability of cities to partner with community organizations for the provision of valuable social services;  and"

Recent Legislative History
7/27/20 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER

The proposed resolution authorizes the City's application to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) for an Our Town grant. The grant amount is $75,000 for fiscal year 2021.

Fiscal Note
Under the proposed resolution, the City is authorized to apply to and participate in the Alliant Energy Corporation's Customer-Owned Parallel Generation program for all future photovoltaic-generated (PVG) power sites in Alliant territory. Under this program, the Alliant Energy Corporation would credit the City's PVG power at the current customer rate, which would reduce the net cost of electricity at installed facility sites.

Agenda Item 91
Amending the Public Health-Madison and Dane County Operating Budget to Increase Staff Due to COVID-19 Health Emergency and Add Funding to Support Testing Efforts
Recent Legislative History
7/27/20 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT (15 VOTES REQUIRED) - REPORT OF OFFICER
From the Item's Fiscal Note:
The proposed resolution amends the Public Health Emergency Response Planning Service operating budget by $2,274,568 to increase personnel expenditures ($1,682,068) due to the COVID-19 health emergency and increase supplies and services to support contact tracing and community testing sites ($592,500).

The resolution increases the Emergency Response Planning Service Overtime budget for staff reassigned to contact tracing and testing ($300,000) and the Hourly Wages budget for 17 LTE Disease Intervention specialists ($440,000), 20 LTE COVID-19 Response Specialists ($440,000), and 20 LTE Bilingual COVID-19 Response Specialists ($490,000). The resolution also authorizes funding 0.35 FTE of an unfunded vacant position to increase a Medical Interpreter position from 0.65 FTE to 1.00 FTE ($12,068).

The increased budget will be funded from County COVID Relief Funding. In 2021, and beyond, the cost of the 0.35 FTE increase will be absorbed into the City and County operating budgets. The City and County share in the costs for Public Health (net of revenues received) based on equalized value. The current split is 44.82% City and 55.18% County.

The employment term for the LTEs is unknown at this time. The need and tenure length for these positions is dependent on the state of the coronavirus on the community. Extending this positions beyond what is funded here will require additional grants, use of Public Health fund balance, and/or additional General Fund appropriation from Dane County and the City.
 
Agenda Item 92
Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to sign a five (5) year non-competitive service contract for up to $60,000 annually with Domestic Abuse Intervention Services, Inc. for the Law Enforcement Advocate Partnership (LEAP)

Place on File Without Prejudice 8/4/20
Note: This item relates to the redevelopment proposal for the 400 block of E. Washington that did not pass Plan Commission on July 13. Plan Commission's final vote on the various Conditional Use applications was to "Place on File Without Prejudice", so this item dovetails with that action. While LZ Ventures could bring a revised proposal to the city, they will need to start the city process anew should they do so.
 
Agenda Item 108
A Resolution amending the "Regulations Governing Vending on the State Street Mall/Capitol Concourse" to eliminate the 2020 Fall Food Cart Review and create alternative procedures for Food Vending site assignments on the Mall/Concourse for the 2021-22 vending season, due to COVID-19

Recent Legislative History
7/21/20 COMMON COUNCIL   Place On File Without Prejudice
Note: This is a reconsideration of the Recovery Program and Equity Program that did not pass at the 7/27 Common Council meeting. As on 7/27, the programs have no reference to downtown, so both could apply citywide. It may be that the item will be further amended before a reconsideration vote were to occur, but that is to be determined. There could be two votes related to this matter: one to reconsider (majority vote required) and, should that succeed, a vote on the item itself (15 votes required).
