3. OTHER DISTRICT 2 UPDATES
 
414 E Wash
 
400 Block E. Washington Proposal at Plan Commission on July 13
 
At our July 13 meeting, Plan Commission will 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.
 
The Urban Design Commission (UDC) considered the proposal at their July 1 meeting and determined that the proposal conformed to the Urban Design District 4 design standards and guidelines. UDC also gave additional design feedback and advised Plan Commission that the proposed two bonus stories on the E. Washington side of the building met Conditional Use standards of approval.
 
Plan Commission will consider four requested approvals needed for the proposal to move forward:
(1) a demolition permit to allow five residential structures and a commercial building to be demolished (402-414 E Washington Ave., 8-12 N Franklin St., and 9 N Hancock St.);
(2) a conditional use in the Urban Mixed-Use (UMX) District for a multi-family dwelling with more than eight (8) dwelling units;
(3) a conditional use in the UMX District for outdoor recreation; and
(4) consideration of a conditional use to construct two additional stories in Area H of the "Additional Heights Area Map" in MGO Section 28.071(b), all to allow construction of a ten-story, mixed-use building containing 3,300 square feet of commercial space and 156 apartments.
 
Materials from UDC's consideration can be found here, including the developer's submittals, staff reports, a neighborhood steering committee report, emails from supporters and opponents, and a petition submitted by neighbors opposing the proposal. Similar materials submitted for Plan Commission's consideration can be found here.
 
The proposed demolitions of the existing homes and commercial buildings on the site were reviewed by the Landmarks Commission at their May 4 meeting. In its advisory recommendation to Plan Commission, Landmarks found that "... the building(s) has historic value related to the vernacular context of Madison's built environment, or as the work/product of an architect of note, but the building itself is not historically, architecturally or culturally significant."
 
Some neighbors are concerned about the loss of these buildings that contribute to the fabric of the James Madison Park neighborhood and contain affordably priced apartments while others see the need for more housing and density downtown and along what is expected to be Madison's first Bus Rapid Transit route. Many neighbors have concerns about the height and scale of the proposed building negatively impacting their quality of life and not respecting the existing neighborhood.
 
If you would like to give input to the Plan Commission, you can email Tim Parks (TParks@cityofmadison.com) of the Planning Division and ask that he forward them to commissioners (please copy me) and/or you can give public comment at the meeting. Participation details are available in City Meetings of Interest below.
 
Reynolds Park Alcohol Ban at Tuesday's Common Council Meeting
 
The permanent ban on alcohol at Reynolds Park and on the adjacent Water Utility property, requested by many nearby neighbors, by the Tenney Lapham Neighborhood Association Council, and by me, is expected to be approved by Common Council at our Tuesday meeting (see Agenda Item 64 below). I don't anticipate opposition, but it is always helpful to attend the meeting if you are interested. Note that alcohol will be allowed in the park only with a permit obtained from the Parks Division.

Requesting an Absentee Ballot for the Aug. 11 Partisan Primary

With the Partisan Primary less than five weeks away, the City of Madison Clerk's Office encourages voters who will need to vote absentee by mail to submit their absentee requests soon. 50,837 City of Madison voters have already requested an absentee ballot for the Partisan Primary. More details here.

Slowing Traffic on E. Washington at Common Council Tuesday
 
At Tuesday's Common Council meeting, we will be voting on two important initiatives related to Madison adopting Vision Zero, a multi-national road traffic safety project that aims to achieve a highway and road system with no fatalities or serious injuries involving road traffic (see Common Council agenda items 95 and 96 below). The proposed implementation of Vision Zero projects for 2020 is included in these considerations. For this year's projects Traffic Engineering has included the items in this table
 
Vision Zero
 
as well as projects elsewhere in the City. These changes could greatly reduce some of the problems that have grown as E. Washington has become much busier. On the isthmus, we don't want a slowing of E. Washington traffic to result in drivers looking for faster routes on our neighborhood streets, but I believe that concern can and will be addressed by traffic calming measures on other routes too. Note that the project list includes funding for two new radar speed boards and crash analysis equipment that will help with driver education and with data collection to analyze the impacts of Vision Zero measures.
 
Note that funding for the full 2020 Vision Zero project list was included in the 2020 city budget so no additional budget allocations are expected this year, but future Vision Zero projects will require additional funding. That said, there are many financial benefits to Vision Zero approaches, including decreasing serious crashes, injuries, and deaths, disincentivizing vehicle usage, incentivizing alternate forms of transportation, disincentivizing the expansion of roadways, and potentially decreasing CO2 emissions.
 
Suspension of Some Parking Enforcement Extended Again
 
The Parking Division is continuing the current suspension of some posted restrictions in non-metered areas and will reassess the situation weekly. This suspension includes the areas with daytime 2-hour parking limits without a Residential Parking Permit and the once per week street sweeping restrictions. Any changes to the suspensions or policies will be announced in advance. Read full news release.
 
Public Health Madison & Dane County Announcing Call for Proposals for a Mural
 
Artists who reside in Dane County are invited to submit a proposal for a mural to be painted in a clinic space used by Public Health Madison & Dane County's Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). The mural is intended to bring vibrancy to the clinic space and create a welcoming environment. More info here.
 
Hub II
 
Hub II Proposal Expected to be Referred to July 27 Plan Commission Meeting
 

At its July 13 meeting and per the developer's request, Plan Commission is expected to refer the proposal by Core Spaces for an apartment building at 126 Langdon St. with 107 units, 373 beds, and 20 parking stalls to its July 27.

The Urban Design Commission considered the proposal at their July 1 meeting and provided advisory feedback to Plan Commission. The latest proposal plans, the neighborhood steering committee report, the city staff report, and materials submitted to the UDC are housed here. Plan Commission materials  are available here. Note that the plans could evolve based on the latest UDC feedback, but to what degree is unknown.

In May, the Plan Commission effectively approved the two additional stories that the developer is seeking for the rear section of the building, but delayed full approval until after they obtain more advisory input from UDC about the building's front massing and facade, as well as about circulation concerns (pedestrian, moped, delivery vehicles, etc). I will further detail UDC's input and Plan Commission's upcoming consideration as July 27 approaches.

Census 2020

Complete the 2020 Census ASAP!
 
Census data determines how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed to communities across the country for healthcare, affordable housing, childcare, education, transportation, and more. That's over $2,000 per person for Madison and Dane County every year. In fact, public health experts, government officials, and first responders all rely on population data to make critical decisions in crises like the one we are currently experiencing.
 

Madison residents can fill out the census over the phone, by mail or online at my2020census.gov.
