2. OTHER DISTRICT 2 UPDATES
 
Yesterday's Events
 
The rally and march yesterday afternoon in protest of the murder of George Lloyd was both inspiring and somber. Several thousand of us rallied, chanted, and expressed our disgust with this murder; the long list of so many other African-Americans murdered by law enforcement, and the effective impunity that white people in general have in the USA. 
 
The peaceful rally and march gave way to separate actions in the State Street area by a much smaller group that resulted in a lot of property damage and teargas and pepper spray usage by law enforcement. I encourage you not to simply accept many of the narratives floating around on social media, mainstream media, or elsewhere about instigators, causes, the incidents, or law enforcement behaviors. I understand it was a complex and fluid situation with many different participants.
 
I encourage you instead to explore your reactions to the destruction and law enforcement activities and ask questions, as I will continue to do. As a white property owner, was my kneejerk reaction to side with law enforcement? Did I initially assume that those destroying property were "outsiders", potentially dismissing the concerns of those who really were on State Street protesting racism? How do black Madison residents view State Street and its culture? Were the protesters and rioters reacting to the national narrative and/or the local narrative about police violence against people of color? Are those law enforcement officers who were protecting property and keeping the peace in a very difficult situation with almost no arrests heroes? Was the looting justified anger?
 
Many of these questions have no firm answers; they are meant for self-exploration and I will seek out brown and black voices to help guide me. At the same time, I will support the many local law enforcement officers and their agencies in their ongoing efforts to understand and address institutional racism.
 
From Chief Wahl's Blog: Update on State Street Violence
 
Reminder: Curfew in Effect on the Isthmus and Downtown from 9:30pm May 31 to 5:00am on June 1.
 

Parking Meters and Street Sweeping No Parking Restarting on June 1

The Parking Division will reinstate enforcement of on-street meters and Street Sweeping restrictions beginning Monday, June 1. All parking meter fees and restrictions & street sweeping and Clean Streets-Clean Lakes restrictions will be enforced. A reminder that all other parking restrictions must still be followed. More details here.

Resident Permit-Only and 1-hour and 2-hour posted restrictions in non-metered areas will remain suspended through at least June 8, 2020.

$5 Max per Day and 1st Hour Free on Saturdays in City-Owned Parking Garages

As Madison begins to slowly return to a "new-normal" and on-street parking meter enforcement & fees will resume June 1st, the Parking Division is making some temporary rate changes for City-owned public parking garages to reduce the cost to park and encourage residents and visitors to shop and dine downtown.

Effective June 1, there will be a $5 daily maximum fee in all City-owned public parking garages, and the first hour of parking is free on Saturdays.

This temporary rate reduction is designed to assist residents, workers and businesses who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 to have a low cost parking option during early recovery and reopening. The $5 daily maximum provides a low cost option to drive and park downtown, as some workers and visitors to the downtown area may be impacted by temporary Metro capacity limits and route reductions. More details here.

400 E Washington Proposal

400 Block E. Washington Proposal Heading Back to Urban Design Commission
 
LZ Ventures' redevelopment proposal for the north side of 400 block of E. Washington Ave. was considered at the May 27 Urban Design Commission meeting, but it will be returning to UDC, perhaps at their July 1 meeting. Commissioners want to see more studies of the proposed building's shadows that would be cast on adjacent properties and other parts of the James Madison Park neighborhood.
 
Another concern of UDC was the lack of a neighborhood steering committee report. The James Madison Park neighborhood steering committee's report was delayed for several reasons, but is now expected to be available in June so that UDC will have their input on the proposal. The steering committee will hold a virtual meeting on June 9 at 7pm to devise their input, so if you'd like to participate or stay informed about the steering committee's work contact Eli at president@capitolneighborhoods.org.
 
The proposal is for a 10-story apartment building along E. Washington with some commercial space on the ground floor. The building would step down to 6 stories in the rear with rooftop amenities atop the 6th floor. Materials from the May 27 UDC meeting can be found here, while the developer's land use application can be found here. The land use application and related matters will be eventually be considered by Plan Commission if UDC approves the proposal's conformity with Urban Design District 4. UDC is advisory only to Plan Commission on the question of two "bonus" floors, so Plan Commission will be the deciding body on that matter and other Conditional Uses.
 
Pride Flag
 

Pride Survives: A Message from Mayor Rhodes-Conway

Monday, June 1 marks the beginning of Pride Month. Last year at this time, we had a flag-raising for the Pride flag at both the Madison Municipal Building and the City County Building. We served cakes decorated with rainbows. We celebrated the five-year anniversary of dozens of couples who were married on the steps on the City County Building in 2014.

We sang along with Perfect Harmony Chorus. It was an incredibly moving and memorable evening! Last year I was also able to march with thousands of people in New York City to mark 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

As Madison's first lesbian Mayor, it was an honor to mark the event with celebrations and, well, with pride. I heard from many people - City employees, Madison residents and some from other areas - that they so appreciated the acknowledgement of their lives, their contributions and their rights.

This year Pride Month will be quieter - no parades, no serving cake to the masses, no flag raising ceremony - but we will fly the Pride flag, and we will light the Madison Municipal Building with rainbow lights. COVID-19 has changed all of our lives, but it does not change our pride, or my appreciation for the respect the LGBTQ community receives in Madison.

I urge you to mark the month in your own way - fly a flag, bake a rainbow cake, and tell the LGBTQ folks in your life you are proud of them. In 2021, I look forward to a return to less physically distanced celebrations!

Stay well, please wear your facial covering and wash your hands!

You can read all of the Mayor's blog entries here.

126 Langdon Proposal

Hub II Proposal Also Returning to Urban Design Commission
 
As detailed in last weekend's Alder Update, the proposal by Core Spaces for an apartment building at 126 Langdon St. with 107 units, 373 beds, and 20 parking stalls was referred back to the Urban Design Commission by Plan Commission. Indications are that UDC will consider Plan Commission's referral at the July 1 UDC meeting when they will primarily be discussing the massing and design of the front section of the building and circulation matters (delivery vehicles, pedestrians, scooters, bicycles, etc.). The proposal's plans, the neighborhood steering committee report, and materials submitted to the Plan Commission are housed here.
 
Contact Steering Committee chair Bob Klebba (bob.klebba@gmail.com) if you would like to participate in any further neighborhood steering committee discussions. You can also email me with your comments.
 
Update from the Salvation Army Shelter
 
Women's Shelter
According to the Salvation Army, they have transitioned their night-only Women's Shelter at 630 E. Washington to a 24/7 shelter due to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing. They will continue to operate the Women's Shelter 24/7 through the end of the year. Starting June 1, everyone staying in the Women's Shelter will be moving upstairs into what used to be the family rooms and they will be converting their gym (where the women used to sleep) into more of an activity space.
 
Family Shelter
The Salvation Army is currently providing offsite shelter to 58 families. On June 1, families will no longer be served at their E. Washington building and will be sheltered offsite. This is necessary in order to provide proper social distancing and services for the women. According to the Salvation Army, their team has assisted 14 families in securing permanent housing so far during the pandemic and will continue to remain housing focused and ideally create movement to permanent destinations.
 
June 1 Public Information Meeting for East Dayton Reconstruction
 
A second virtual public information meeting will be held on June 1 at 5:30pm to discuss an upcoming E. Dayton Street reconstruction project. City Engineering is estimating an August project to reconstruct the two blocks of E. Dayton between N. Blair and N. Livingston Streets. This project includes asphalt pavement resurfacing, spot repairs of curb and gutter, sidewalk, and driveway aprons and utility replacements of storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main facilities. Visit the project's webpage that will be updated throughout the construction, where you can signup to receive emails about the project, register for the public information meeting, and find contact information. You must register in advance in order to participate in the June 1 meeting. The public information meeting slides from the earlier May 21 informational meeting are also posted at the project webpage.
 

Reminder: City Allows Delay of Property Tax Payments Without Penalty Amid COVID-19

Dane County recently approved a resolution that gives local units of government the flexibility to delay the due date for property taxes to October 1, 2020. Recent state legislation authorized the ability for counties and their communities to take this step in an attempt to offer payment flexibility for individuals and families who may be struggling to keep up with expenses during this difficult time. Common Council subsequently approved a resolution that implements such a provision for Madison residents. In Madison, property tax installment payments will be due in full on May 31 and July 31 as usual, but if not paid until as late as Sep. 30, 2020, no penalties or interest will accrue.

Fight the Bite: Take Steps to Prevent West Nile Virus

With spring weather comes rainfall, and soon after, mosquitoes. The bite of an infected mosquito can transmit West Nile Virus (WNV). Though mosquitoes are just starting to fly in our community, dumping standing water from rainfalls will reduce their breeding areas, ultimately helping to reduce the possibility of being bitten. Details from Public Health Madison & Dane County on how to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and about WNV are here.

Landmarks Commission: Agenda
5:00pm, Monday, June 1, 2020
Virtual Meeting
 

The City of Madison is holding the Landmarks Commission meeting virtually to help protect our community from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Note: Virtual attendance instructions in the agenda linked above.

PUBLIC HEARING - REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS

Agenda Item 4
7-11 N Pinckney St - Demolition of a Designated Madison Landmark; 4th Ald. Dist.
Note: This demolition of a Madison landmark, currently known as the Centre Seven building, is part of Urban Land Interests' proposed redevelopment of much of this block. The proposed demolition was earlier granted a "public interest variance" by the Landmarks Commission that consequently allowed this consideration for a Certificate of Appropriateness. After earlier objecting to the public interest variance, city staff is now recommending that the COA be granted, with some conditions, given that the normal standards of approval for the demolition are waived due to the variance..
 
REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS
 
Agenda Item 5
300 E Gorham St - Exterior Alteration to a Designated Madison Landmark in the Mansion Hill Hist. Dist. (Gates of Heaven) - Exterior restoration; 2nd Ald. Dist.
Note: City Engineering is proposing this restoration project for the historic Gates of Heaven Synagogue building in James Madison Park. They plan to clean the exterior stone, consolidate it, replace very few stones, repoint point the brick, restore the existing windows and doors, and standardize the storm windows. The stone consolidant will bind the sand particles together so that they do not continue to flake off. According to Engineering, this Madison sandstone is beautiful in its soft worn state, but it is also fragile and takes on damaging amounts of water so they must strike a balance. Keep up with the project at this website.

REPORT OF COMMON COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

Agenda Item 98
SUBSTITUTE-Establishing rules and procedures for Common Council deliberations on the City of Madison's 2021 Capital and Operating Budgets.
Recent Legislative History
5/19/20 COMMON COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
 
Agenda Item 99
Creating new Section 3.01(2) of the Madison General Ordinances to add a definition of the end of term of elected officials and renumbering current Section 3.01 to Section 3.01(1).
Recent Legislative History
5/19/20 COMMON COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: Madison has no rule about the end of a term for its elected officials. Thus, under existing law, all terms end on the third Tuesday in April. Usually, this is the time when new officials are sworn in. This year, there was the possibility of a delayed election, meaning that all officials whose term ended would leave office, and there would be the possibility of there being no Mayor and no alderpersons to serve until the election was held.
This amendment provides that all elected officials, including the municipal judge, serve until their successors are elected and qualified (sworn in). In normal circumstances, this does not change the transition to new officers. But in the rare event of a delayed or disputed election, it would assure that some person held the office in the interim.
This provision is not a charter ordinance.
 
Agenda Item 100
SUBSTITUTE - Amending Section 33.13(1) of the Madison General Ordinances to change the timing of Common Council Executive Committee appointments and clarify that such appointments are subject to Council confirmation and that the terms end at the organizational meeting.
Recent Legislative History
5/19/20 COMMON COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This amendment makes two clarifications to the appointment of the Common Council Executive Committee. First, it clarifies that the newly elected President of the Council is to make the appointment as soon as practicable after the organizational meeting. Second, it clarifies that the appointments are subject to confirmation by the Council.
Both of these amendments are to conform to established practice by the Council.
A substitute was created because a third change was recommended by the CCEC and agreed to by the sponsor. This additional change makes it clear that the terms of the members of the CCEC end at the time of the organizational meeting of the Council in April.
 
Agenda Item 101
Extending the deadline for the report and recommendations from the President's Work Group to Review Council Communication Tools & Processes to September 30, 2020.
Recent Legislative History
5/19/20 COMMON COUNCIL    Refer to the COMMON COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

Sponsors: Satya V. Rhodes-Conway, Michael J. Tierney and Patrick W. Heck
Legislative History
5/26/20 Attorney's Office    Referred for Introduction Plan Commission
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This amendment will allow Electric Power Production and/or heating and cooling plants as a permitted/conditional use in all mixed-use and commercial districts and the Suburban Employment (SE), Suburban Employment Center (SEC), Employment Campus (EC), and Agricultural District (A).  Under this ordinance, in the Agricultural District any Electric Power Production and/or heating and cooling plant using solar as an energy source will be a permitted use.  As such, this will expand the areas in the City were such a use is allowed and, in at least one district, make solar energy plants a permitted use.
