3. OTHER DISTRICT 2 UPDATES
 
The Frustration of Noise from East Washington

Yes, I'm also tired of the nightly noise and dangerous driving, which sometimes extends to other District 2 streets such as E. Gorham and E. Johnson. MPD and other alders whose districts include portions of East or West Washington Avenue are well aware of the issues.

What Can Be Done - Enforcement, Traffic Calming?
Increased enforcement is one option, but alders and Common Council can do very little to control police operations; our primary influence on MPD is through budgeting. Alders, however, have repeatedly asked for increased enforcement, but there are many considerations:
 
  • In April and May, law enforcement agencies did conduct coordinated and targeted enforcement along E. Wash., but that fell by the wayside as MPD refocused on protest-related matters.
  • MPD is often overburdened with more substantial calls, particularly in the evening and at night.
  • From the surge in gun violence, to protests, to traffic control related to protests, and other matters, MPD is not able to devote many resources to traffic enforcement.
  • Some suggest that MPD could be using their lack of response to apply pressure on Common Council to provide more police funding - I do not know if that is true, but I do know that there are not patrol officers just sitting around.
  • Data clearly shows that traffic enforcement efforts disproportionally impact drivers of color - do we want to promote this?

Traffic calming is another option. Fortunately, the upcoming reduction in speed limit on E. Washington to 25mph should help. Traffic signals will also be re-timed and crosswalks enhanced. The Traffic Engineering Division is exploring other ideas, but it is clear that aggressive drivers are likely to find ways to get around many such solutions, including perhaps just relocating to nearby streets. A longer term solution could involve some roadway redesign when the Bus Rapid Transit line is installed on E. Washington.

Given that there are many cries to "defund the police" and we are in a substantial city budget hole this year due to COVID-19 (and are facing an estimated $25M deficit for 2021), it is unlikely there will be extra funding available for the police. Note that the police are already scheduled for a union-negotiated pay raise of 3.75% in 2021, which could come at the expense of reducing other MPD capabilities or other departments since we have few options for revenue increases. The choices are likely to come down to reducing other city services, which can involve laying off employees, or maintaining/adding to the police budget. Also, since alders are unable to micromanage police operations, we cannot force MPD to use any of their funding for traffic enforcement.
 

I am open to any ideas you have since we obviously need better options. In the meantime, I encourage you to call the non-emergency number (608-255-2345) or 911 if appropriate to report noise and dangerous driving concerns. The more data and reports that are collected, the more likely it is that MPD and the City in general will devote time and resources to the problem.

Register to Vote at the Polls on Tuesday and More Voting Info

Although voter registration is not available the Saturday, Sunday, or Monday before an election, voters are able to register at the polls on Election Day (Tuesday, August 11).

Voters may verify their registration at https://MyVote.wi.gov. Anyone who moved after July 14 – even to a new apartment in the same building – will need to update their voter registration. Voters who moved within 28 days of the primary will not have been at their new address long enough to establish residency for voting purposes, and will only be eligible to vote at the polling location for their previous address. More info here.

Information on determining where to vote for the Partisan Primary is here.

In District 2, ward numbers and voting locations are:

44:       Tenney Park Pavilion, 402 N Thornton Ave
45:       Lapham Elementary, 1045 E Dayton St
46:       Gates of Heaven, 302 E Gorham St

Options for voters with absentee ballots to return is here. You can no longer return your ballot by mail and expect it to be counted!

Mayor Rhodes-Conway's Statement on Gun Violence

Even as our City grapples with the effects of a national pandemic, and strives to come to grips with the scourge of systemic racism and inequality within our community, we face yet another critical challenge – the rising incidence of gun violence on our streets. Like many cities across the country, we have seen a disturbing increase in these violent crimes over the last month.

Gun violence in Madison is not confined to, or rooted in, any one neighborhood or community. It affects the entire City, fueled by reckless and dangerous acts by a few individuals, intent on settling scores and willing to endanger their neighbors or innocent bystanders in the process. Full statement here.

Emails to Alders and to District2@CityofMadison.com

In recent months I've received many thousands of emails from concerned residents, both in and out of District 2. While I try to respond to those who live in District 2, a few have likely fallen through the cracks, so please email again if I didn't respond. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with the email traffic, particularly since many folks are now emailing all alders with their concerns rather than focusing on the alder that represents them. Some thoughts on effective emails to your alder:

  • If you do not provide your address or mention that you live in District 2, I generally do not have the capacity to respond.
  • Emails to allalders@cityofmadison.com are not ineffective, but most effective are emails to district2@cityofmadison.com, assuming you live in District 2.
  • Cut/pasted mass emails are not ineffective, but most impactful are emails with a personal touch.

Alders have no staff to assist with communications and we also have non-alder jobs to attend to, so I ask for your patience with my sometimes slow responses. Despite being overwhelmed with email at times, I really do appreciate hearing from you. District 2 folks have provided many great ideas for tackling today's complicated issues and have also given me excellent constructive criticism - thanks!

S. Blair and E. Washington Reconstruction Update

The proposed design of the Blair St. project will be before the Transportation Commission on August 12 (see details in City Meetings of Interest below. This 2021 project will include the intersection of Blair/John Nolen/Williamson/Wilson along with the pavement replacement portion on S. Blair St. and E. Washington Avenue between Blair and Blount Streets. The project geometrics will also be on the agenda for the August 19 Board of Public Works meetings.

Madison Water Utility Finds Trace Amounts of PFAS in All City Wells

Madison Water Utility has completed its annual comprehensive testing for a class of chemicals known as PFAS in the city's drinking water wells. Results show at least some PFAS are present in every Madison well, with total amounts ranging from 2.5 to 47 parts-per-trillion. All wells tested show PFAS levels far below the proposed safe drinking water limit  that is being considered by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). PFAS chemicals are not yet regulated in drinking water, but a regulatory limit could be announced by the DNR as early as next year. More information here.

City of Madison and Dane County Fleets Convene to Talk Sustainability

From City of Madison Fleet Service
We recently got together with Dane County and a number of other public fleet teams around our region to talk environmentally sustainable technology such as CNG, EVs, solar charging, and hybrid police squad cars. For we are all in this fight for the planet together, and although we enjoy being the revolutionary model of sustainability for Wisconsin... we welcome, encourage and challenge others to join us too, and it's working. More info on Fleet Service's sustainability efforts is here.
 
E. Gorham Street Sewer Replacement Project to Start Aug. 10

Construction for this project is now scheduled to start this coming week. The project spans East Gorham Street between N. Butler and N. Livingston Streets. Vehicular traffic on Gorham may shift and the bike lane could be closed at times during portions of the project. This project is necessary because the sanitary sewer is old and is undersized for today's design standards. See project information and contacts.

Census 2020

2020 Census – 30,000 Madison households still need to respond
 
August 11 Census takers start door knocking in Madison area
As of July 31, an estimated 30,000 Madison households still needed to respond to the 2020 Census according to the Census Bureau. The city's 2020 self-response rate (72.4%) was lagging the final 2010 self-response rate (77.2%) by 4.8 percentage points. In addition to tracking citywide response figures, Madison is tracking response rates within individual Census tracts by the percentage PDF  and estimated number PDF  of households that have yet to respond. Response rates are lagging in Census tracts around UW-Madison along with portions of Madison's northeast, south, and west sides.
 
The City of Madison's Complete Count Committee is asking households that have not yet responded to take 10 minutes to complete the Census at my2020census.gov , by phone , or by mail . Census Bureau employees will start visiting households that have not yet responded on August 11.
 
Streets 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.

More info about large item pickup and other Moving Days Info is here.
