Updates & Week of Nov. 4 Meetings of Interest for District 2

District 2 Updates and Meetings of Interest

East Johnson Street Closure Continues

The full traffic closure of East Johnson Street (inbound and outbound) from N. Baldwin to First Street is expected to last until at least 5am on Monday, November 4. The reopening date could change due to our unseasonably cold weather because they need to pour concrete for surface paving. I will post information as I obtain it.

Yahara River Bike/Pedestrian Underpass Closure is TBD

The Yahara River bike/pedestrian path that goes under E. Johnson Street will be closed for several days as part of the E. Johnson reconstruction project, but it is not clear exactly when. I will post that information as I obtain it. During the underpass closing, the sidewalk on the Tenney Park side of the E. Johnson bridge will be open for pedestrian and bike traffic and will have fencing and barriers for protection from any car traffic. Those pedestrians and cyclists traveling across the bridge will need to cross Johnson at Fordem or Baldwin.

Visit this website where you can obtain project info and contact info, including a map of the current project stage (Stage 4), although the temporary closings of the bridge and underpass are not indicated on the map.

Sunday, Nov. 10 Madison Marathon

The Madison Marathon and Half-Marathon begin at 7:00am on Sunday, Nov. 10, starting and ending near the top of State Street on Capitol Square. Maps for the full marathon can be found here and the half-marathon here.

Expect street and/or lane closures in the morning outbound on Gorham St, across the E. Johnson Street bridge over the Yahara River and on Fordem Avenue. On the inbound portion of the routes in the mid-morning and into the afternoon, runners will be taking Sherman Avenue from the northside, turning into Tenney Park to get under E. Johnson, and taking the bike boulevard route up E. Mifflin to the outer loop on S. Webster and Dayton and then State St. to Capital Square.

Relocation of Intercity Bus Loading from Langdon Street to 200 Block of Lake Street

Starting on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, Badger Bus, Lamers and Jefferson Lines will begin passenger loading in the 200 block of Lake Street (W Johnson Street to W Dayton Street) adjacent to UW's Gordon Dining and Event Center terrace. More details here. Coach USA services (including Megabus and Van Galder) will begin passenger loading along Lake Street on Wednesday, January 8, 2020.  Passengers are encouraged to contact the bus companies directly if they have questions regarding boarding and alighting locations.

MATPB

Public Hearing on Proposed Beltline Dynamic Part-time Shoulder Usage

This week's Madison Area Transportation Planning Board meeting agenda includes a public hearing on an amendment to the Regional Transportation Plan and Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) that would add Beltline Dynamic Part-time Shoulder Usage. With the implementation of DPTSU traffic would be permitted to use the inside shoulder on the Beltline between I-39/90 and Whitney Way during weekday peak periods and at other times, such as during special events, when it is congested and travel speeds are reduced. The shoulder would be widened to 13 feet through the reconstruction of the median barrier wall and a reduction in the width of the regular travel lanes. The shoulder would not be open during set times, but rather it's use would be actively managed through the State Traffic Operations Center with the shoulder only open to traffic when operations on the Beltline warranted it.

While traffic is quite heavy at times on the Beltline, I have concerns about this proposal because of what is called "induced demand". When we expand road capacity, drivers tend to fill the new facilities until they too become congested and demands for additional capacity return. You can learn about induced demand here in a good overview from CityLab. Note that the project is funded by federal transportation dollars.

Notice of Wednesday's Public Hearing on this and other projects, as well as how to submit comments, is here with further information here. The meeting takes place on Nov. 6, 6:30pm, in Conference Room A-B of the Madison Water Utility, 119 E. Olin Avenue. I am a member of MATPB and look forward to any input on the proposal.

Tenney Park Trees and Shoreline Damaged by Flooding and Cold

Due to last year's flooding and our harsh winter, the Madison Parks Division has found numerous dead or declining trees in Tenney Park. They believe that of those trees only seven are not flood related. Due to concerns for safety, they have been removing as many as 30 dead trees. Parks Planning and staff will work on a plan to replant trees where appropriate. They will be looking for desirable locations and species, now that they know what did not survive in the flooding.

Parks Planning is also working through the FEMA grant process and will be working to replant and restore the bioengineered shorelines. Vegetation that is more flood resistant is expected to be planted. Parks will check with the State Historical Society regarding approvals for this site as it is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Parks Division hopes to restore Tenney to its previous beauty for all of the residents of Madison to enjoy.

Update on Salvation Army Redevelopment Proposal

The Salvation Army redevelopment proposal's request for a demolition permit and conditional uses will be considered by Plan Commission at their Monday, Nov. 11, 5:30pm meeting. Public testimony will be welcome (limited to 3 minutes for each speaker), city staff will present a report on the proposal, and commissioners will ask questions and discuss the item. I will publish the meeting agenda in next weekend's alder update.
 
The proposal's application materials, staff reports, etc., are housed here. TLNA's materials on the proposal can be found here. Feel free to email me with input. Note that I plan to pass your input on to Plan Commissioners, but if you want to contact Plan Commissioners directly, you can send an email to Tim Parks (TParks@cityofmadison.com), the city planner for the project, asking him to pass your comments on.
 
I have received a large number of communications from District 2 residents and property owners who are opposed to the redevelopment and generally opposed to the Salvation Army's current operation being at 630 E. Washington. Those who oppose the shelter expansion and addition of housing options tend to live nearest to the Salvation Army while those who support the proposal tend to live further from the site. If you have input, please let me know and/or email Plan Commissioners as mentioned above.
 
The City's consideration of affordable housing funds for the proposal begins at the Community Development Block Grant Committee on Nov. 7. See the Common Council meeting agenda item #89 and CDBG agenda item #4 in the list of city meetings below. Note that on Oct. 24, the County's Health and Human Needs Committee approved a capital budget amendment to provide $1.3M to the Salvation Army's redevelopment. That will need to pass the full County Board.

Renovations at Burr Jones Park Start

The Parks Division has kicked off their renovations to Burr Junes Park, located on the east side of the Yahara River near the developing Public Market site in Alder Abbas' district. See the full park renovations plans here and read media coverage on the project here. This project, along with the reconstruction of E. Johnson and First Streets and a railroad bridge replacement project over the river, have created an active area, so please be careful as you walk, bike, and drive.

Streets Division
 
Leaf/Yard Waste Collection Continues Despite Snow
 
The Streets Division is still collecting curbside piles of leaves and yard waste. While the Halloween snowstorm caused delays, it did not end operations for the year. Crews are collecting bags of leaves/yard waste and also loose yard waste/leaves piles that can be identified under the snow. 
 

It is standard Streets Division operations to continue providing leaf collection until all of the leaves have been collected, or until snow piles are so deep along the terrace that piles cannot be distinguished from snow, and the weather outlook suggests that the snow will remain until the spring.

Residents who have gathered leaves in advance of collection are encouraged to consult the Pickup Schedule Map on the Streets Division's yard waste website. When the map shows neighborhoods shaded green for "Pickup Pending" residents should get leaves to the curb for collection. The map cannot provide the date when leaves and yard waste will be collected, but by placing leaves to the curb when a neighborhood is marked "Pickup Pending" will minimize the amount of time the leaves and yard waste are at the curb, and will ensure they are in place in time for curbside collection. 

Residents can also use one of the three Streets Division drop-off sites for their material. Additional information about yard waste can be found here, and additional information about Madison's response to snow events can be found here.

UWPD Chief Announces New Downtown Officer Position
 
Goods news from the University of WI Police Department is below. I've been working to increase the connections between MPD, UWPD, UW students (particularly in the Greek community), and other UW stakeholders. Those efforts are ongoing and we expect to continue to work together to increase communication and understand who can address shortcomings in proactive and reactive law enforcement in the Langdon Street area due to the forthcoming removal of MPD's Langdon Street Neighborhood Officer position. 
 
From UW Police Chief Kristin Roman:
"... I am excited to announce plans to create a UWPD Downtown Liaison Officer position to serve a geographic area consistent with our off campus alert area. This area is bordered by Lake Mendota, Lake Street, Gorham Street, and Wisconsin Ave. Similar to our other community officer positions, the UWPD Downtown Liaison Officer will work to engage with students and other campus partners, connect students with necessary resources, and provide a link between UWPD and MPD for police response in this area. While the primary jurisdiction and call-for-service response for these areas will remain with the City of Madison, the UWPD Downtown Liaison Officer will have the ability to exercise specific enforcement authority as appropriate but will primarily focus efforts on building relationships, providing advocacy, and serving as an additional resource dedicated to promoting safety in our off campus community.
 
The responsibilities, duties, and assignments of the new UWPD Downtown Liaison Officer position are still being developed and this is where we need your help! Over the next few months, we will be working with relevant campus stakeholders, student organizations, and municipal partners to further define this position and shape community expectations. More information about opportunities to provide feedback on this effort will be shared in the next few weeks. We look forward to the process and are excited about the positive impact we expect this position will have on all our students."
 
Chief Roman's full post can be found here.

Plan Commission; Public Hearings: Plan Commission (11/25/19), Common Council (12/03/19)
Note: I am sponsoring and supporting this ordinance change that provides predictable and standardized setback requirements along Langdon Street. Some of these changes will provide additional protections for the historic character and views in the Langdon Street area. Former District 2 Alder Zellers worked with city staff and area stakeholders to develop these changes. Former District 8 Alder Reddy also supported these changes.
 
Agenda Item 65
Creating Section 28.183(6)(a)17. of the Madison General Ordinances to create a conditional use standard for projections into the capitol view height area.
Sponsors: Patrick W. Heck, Lindsay Lemmer, Marsha A. Rummel and Michael E. Verveer
Legislative History
10/29/19 Attorney's Office Group/Approval    Referred for Introduction
Plan Commission; Public Hearings: Plan Commission (11/25/19), Common Council (12/03/19)
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Sec. 28.134(3) of the Madison General Ordinances, entitled "Capitol View Preservation," allows the Plan Commission to allow certain projections into the capitol view height area as a conditional use. Until now, the zoning code has not had a separate conditional use standard for this conditional use. This ordinance therefore creates a new conditional use standard for allowing projections into the capitol view height area.
