Alder Heck’s Updates

Updates & Week of June 29 Meetings of Interest for District 2

June 27, 2020 2:48 PM

District 2 Updates and Meetings of Interest

City meetings remain online only with details on agendas listed in Meetings of Interest below; all have virtual public participation options.

Stay in touch with your neighbors through either Capitol Neighborhoods, Inc. or Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association.

Stay healthy, stay home, stay in touch, and please practice physical distancing whenever outside your home. Using a face mask is advised in indoor shared spaces, as in outdoor spaces without at least 6 feet between you and those not in your household or closed circle.

There are four sections to this week's update:
  1. Protests and Resources
  2. COVID-19 Updates
  3. Other District 2 Updates
  4. City Meetings of Interest to District 2


As I've mentioned in earlier udpates, alders have heard from thousands of constituents in recent weeks concerning the needs to address systemic racism; to invest in our brown and black communities; to redirect police budgets to community-based resources, and to increase community oversight of MPD. We have also heard from constituents who are deeply concerned about the damage to public and private property and violent acts perpetrated against individuals. I strongly condemn all forms of violence against people and property damage, yet recognize that all forms of protest can focus attention on this crisis. The effects that property damage and violence can have on the community, however, also work against the goals we share; to reinvent our society, economy, and government so that structural racism and white privilege are not just called out, but reckoned with.

I am also alarmed by multiple acts of violence against people that took place this week, including hate crimes, anti-Black violence, and violence against bystanders. I understand that police investigations take time, yet share community frustration that answers have not been available as quickly as we'd like on these incidents. I also share frustrations that alleged perpetrators of crimes, and even victims, are often treated differently based on race or ethnicity. That said, there is a lot of information, and in some cases misinformation, being rapidly spread over the last few weeks. Please remember that what you see or read online and in mainstream media should always be cross-checked and carefully weighed.

The City is just beginning the 2021 budget-building process, including the MPD budget. I hope we can build this and future budgets looking for opportunities to build capacity for alternative responses to police calls for service, including using social and mental health organizations and other community-based entities. Building these capacities will be a community-wide effort, as will the creation of an effective MPD community oversight board and independent monitor. Meanwhile, we appear to be moving towards removal of MPD's School Resource Officers from Public High Schools, which I support. A $500,000 program to boost commercial property ownership by People of Color will soon be up for Common Council approval, as is a Task Force on Critical Issues Affecting the Black Community. These, along with MPD budget and policy work, are only the beginning as we work to address inequities and injustice. Moving from discussion to action and to implementation will no doubt be frustratingly slow at times and challenging, so it will require focus on the part of government at all levels, activists, the non-profit and business communities, and all of us.

400 E Wash Proposal
400 Block E. Washington Proposal at Urban Design Commission on July 1
At their July 1 meeting, the Urban Design Commission (UDC) will again consider LZ Ventures proposal for a 10-story apartment building along E. Washington with two commercial spaces on the ground floor. The building would step down to 6 stories in the rear with rooftop amenities atop the 6th floor and contain 152 apartments with underground parking. Materials for the UDC's considerations can be found here, including a recently updated proposal version, a report from the neighborhood steering committee, and the city staff report. Materials for Plan Commission consideration can be found here.
At their May 27 meeting, UDC indicated that they want to see studies of the proposed building's shadows that would be cast on adjacent and nearby properties and also mentioned some concern about the aesthetics of the proposed 2 bonus stories in relation to the lower floors. Another UDC concern was the lack of a neighborhood steering committee report that has since been submitted.
Many neighbors have concerns about the height and scale of the proposed building negatively impacting their properties and not respecting the existing neighborhood. They are also concerned about the loss of the existing buildings that contribute to the history and fabric of the James Madison Park neighborhood and contain affordably priced apartments. Some neighbors see the need for more housing and density, especially along what is expected to be Madison's first Bus Rapid Transit route.
UDC will be advisory-only to Plan Commission on the request for two bonus floors along E. Washington. Eight floors are allowed in the zoning code for this site and up to two bonus floors are allowed if Plan Commission finds that all of the following conditions are present:
  1. The excess height is compatible with the existing or planned (if the recommendations in the Downtown Plan call for changes) character of the surrounding area, including but not limited to the scale, mass, rhythm, and setbacks of buildings and relationships to street frontages and public spaces.
  2. The excess height allows for a demonstrated higher quality building than could be achieved without the additional stories.
  3. Not Applicable.
  4. For projects proposed in priority viewsheds and other views and vistas identified on the Views and Vistas Map in the City of Madison Downtown Plan, there are no negative impacts on the viewshed as demonstrated by viewshed studies prepared by the applicant.

UDC will be the approving body in determining if the proposal conforms to Urban Design District 4 (UDD-4) design standards and guidelines. If UDC finds that the proposal meets those standards and guidelines, it will move on to Plan Commission on July 13 regardless of UDC's advisory opinion on the bonus floors. The most pertinent portions of the UDD-4 consideration are apt to be whether or not the proposed building conforms to this Building Design Requirement:

i. Exterior building materials shall be low maintenance and harmonious with those used on other buildings in the area.

and these Guidelines:

i. Structures should be designed to be compatible with the structures that are adjacent to them.
iii. All building elevations are of importance and should be carefully designed. When visible from roadways or adjoining properties, roof surfaces should be considered as part of the overall design.
iv. The architecture of new in-fill buildings, additions to existing buildings and major exterior remodelings should be compatible with that of existing adjacent buildings.
If you would like to give input to the UDC, you can email Tim Parks ( and ask that he forward them to commissioners (please cc me) and/or you can give public comment at the meeting (details in the meeting agenda listed in City Meetings of Interest below).
Reminder: Check Water Quality and Status of Beaches
According to Public Health Madison & Dane County, water quality monitoring at beaches is updated as beaches open. Observe water conditions before you or your pet enter the water and avoid contact with algal blooms. Information on water quality and status of each beach is here.

Hub II Proposal

Hub II Proposal Also at Urban Design Commission on July 1

At its May 18 meeting, Plan Commission referred the proposal by Core Spaces for an apartment building at 126 Langdon St. with 107 units, 373 beds, and 20 parking stalls back to the Urban Design Commission. UDC will again consider this proposal at their July 1 meeting. The proposal plans (recently updated), the neighborhood steering committee report, the city staff report, and materials submitted to the UDC are housed here. Plan Commission materials available here.

Plan Commission effectively approved the two additional stories that the developer is seeking for the rear section of the building, but leaves full approval up to Plan Commission after they obtain more input from UDC about the building's front massing and facade, as well as about circulation concerns (pedestrian, moped, delivery vehicles, etc). UDC's input on these matters and full consideration is scheduled for the July 13 Plan Commission meeting. If you would like to give input to the UDC, you can email Sydney Prusak ( and ask that she forward them to commissioners (please cc me) and/or you can give public comment at the meeting (details in the meeting agenda listed in City Meetings of Interest below).

Input on the proposal has varied considerably, but most nearby neighbors are concerned about the scale and massing of the proposal not respecting the historic Langdon area context; the density being too large and impacting the nearby neighbors with vehicles and noise, and are skeptical of Core Spaces management ability due to past experiences with other properties. Many members of fraternities and many people from outside the neighborhood have expressed support for the project and the accompanying increase in housing options for students. A petition organized by other UW students gathered more than 1,000 signatures in opposition to the proposed building's size and lack of affordability.

Asphalt Pouring This Week For Elizabeth St. & N. Ingersoll St. Reconstruction
According to City Engineering, the majority of the concrete work is now complete for this reconstruction project. New asphalt pavement is scheduled to be installed early in the week of June 29. Following the pavement, the contractor will continue to work on terrace restoration, and the new pavement markings will be installed.

Census 2020

Census Count Extended Through Oct. 31, 2020

Although the US Senate has not officially voted on this extension, leadership and the President have signaled their affirmative intent to the US Census Bureau. This is good news because we need more time to get out the count, given the limitations created by COVID-19. For more information on current count response rates and analysis, you can check out CUNY's Center for Urban Research. Despite Wisconsin's overall response rate being 2nd in the country, Madison and especially central Madison have very low return rates. You can find state, county, city, and census-track response rates here.

Madison residents can fill out the census over the phone, by mail or online at
