City Unveils Secure Absentee Ballot Drop Boxes

The City of Madison Clerk's Office has purchased and installed 14 secure ballot drop boxes that are being placed at 13 Madison Fire stations and at Elver Park shelter. The drop boxes are made for the sole purpose of ballot collection, and are manufactured with a minimum of ¼" steel. The seams are fully welded to prevent damage and tampering.

The last ballot box pick-up will occur by 5:00pm the day before Election Day, and the slots will be closed and locked at that time. Voters will be directed to drop their absentee ballot off at their polling place on Election Day if they still have it. More info here.

Oct. 28 Neighborhood Meeting for N. Few Redevelopment Proposal
 
A new redevelopment proposal is being explored by SEA Design for the current site of Scooter Therapy at 12 N. Few St. I am hosting a virtual neighborhood meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 7pm, to hear from the developer about their proposal. After Oct. 28, TLNA is likely to form a steering committee to work with the developer and evaluate the proposal. The developer has not submitted any materials to the city, so their schedule and full design is unknown at this time. If you'd like to attend the Oct. 28 virtual meeting, register here.
 
The developer is proposing to retain the bulk of the Scooter Therapy building and demolish a smaller and shorter section on the N. Few Street side. The owner proposes to construct a new building addition in the current parking lot area. Eight one-bedroom apartments would fill the second floor. The first floor would contain 8 garages, one for each apartment, and would be designed to promote live-work arrangements for those tenants who might choose to have a small business that could operate directly below their residence.  Alternatively, the first-floor spaces could perhaps be leased to a small business separately. The layout and provisions for driveway access for the 8 garages is to-be-determined.
 

Freakfest 2020 Canceled, Residents Reminded to Avoid Halloween Gatherings

The City of Madison, the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and Public Health Madison & Dane County are strongly recommending that people celebrate Halloween with members of their household and avoid holding or attending gatherings. Parties and gatherings that are part of Halloween in a normal year pose a risk to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Madison's largest Halloween event, Freakfest, has been cancelled. More information here.

Reminder: Some District 2 Polling Places Have Changed for Nov. 3

The City Clerk's Office tells me that due to concerns about COVID-19 and other factors, Wards 46, 47, and 48 will not be voting in their usual locations on Nov. 3. Here are the changes:

  • Ward 46 (Gates of Heaven) moves to Wisconsin Masonic Center, 301 Wisconsin Ave.
  • Ward 47 (Lowell Center) moves to Hillel at UW, 611 Langdon St.
  • Ward 48 (Lowell Center) moves to Below Alumni Center, 650 N Lake St.

Note that in the April Primary Election, Wards 47 and 48 voted at the Pyle Center, but the Clerk's Office will be splitting those to two different locations to reduce the number of voters who will be in the facility at one time in order to promote physical distancing. Campus wards tend to have a lot of in-person voting and election day registrations. The Clerk will be sending postcards to all registered voters in these wards and UW will be emailing all students. If you are unsure of your ward, visit myvote.wi.gov.

Wards 44 (Tenney Park Shelter) and Ward 45 (Lapham School) voting locations will not change.

400 E Wash Proposal

JMP Neighborhood Steering Committee For Proposed Redevelopment on 400 Block E. Wash. Meeting

On Oct. 15 the James Madison Park District steering committee that is evaluating the new LZ Ventures proposal for the 400 block of E. Washington Ave. met. From what I understand, the steering committee is now formulating input to provide to the Urban Design Commission and Plan Commission. They have not yet determined if they will meet again before the proposal goes before UDC on Nov. 4 and Plan Commission on Nov. 9, but the committee does communicate often via email. Please email me at district2@cityofmadison.com if have you input and/or email steering committee chair Bob Klebba (bob.klebba@gmail.com) if want to participate in or have input for the committee.
 
The developer will be seeking one bonus floor along E. Washington (down from two) and, as before, various conditional use permits. Compliance with Urban Design District 4 guidelines will also be considered. Project plans and other materials can be found here

Zoning Map Amendments & Related Requests
 
Note: Items 12 and 13 are related and should be referred to November 9, 2020 pending a recommendation by the Urban Design Commission.
 
Agenda Item 12
Creating Sections 28.022 - 00468 of the Madison General Ordinances to change the zoning of properties located at 1-19 North Pinckney Street and 120 East Washington Avenue, 4th Aldermanic District, from DC (Downtown Core) District to PD(GDP) Planned Development (General Development Plan), and creating and 28.022 - 00469 of the Madison General Ordinances to change the zoning of same from PD(GDP) Planned Development (General Development Plan) District and PD(SIP) Planned Development (Specific Implementation Plan) District.
 
Agenda Item 13
1-19 N Pinckney Street and 120 E Washington Avenue; 4th Ald. Dist.: Consideration of a demolition permit to demolish six commercial buildings as part of a planned redevelopment in Planned Development (PD) zoning.
 
Conditional Use Requests & Demolition Permits
 
Agenda Item 14
429 N Paterson Street; 2nd Ald. Dist.: Consideration of a conditional use in the Traditional Residential-Consistent 4 (TR-C4) District for an accessory building exceeding 576 square feet and ten percent (10%) of lot area; and consideration of a conditional use in the TR-C4 District for an accessory dwelling unit, to allow construction of a 700 square-foot accessory dwelling unit with an accessory dwelling unit.
Note: The application, neighbor input, and staff report for this item can be found here.
 
Note: Items 15 and 16 are related and should be considered together.
 
Agenda Item 15
Amending the East Washington Avenue Capitol Gateway Corridor Plan to revise the land use recommendation for the block bounded by East Washington Avenue, South Brearly Street, East Main Street, and South Paterson Street from "Employment" to "Employment/Residential."
 
Agenda Item 16
E Main Street; Urban Design Dist. 8; 6th Ald. Dist.: Consideration of a conditional use in the Traditional Employment (TE) District for dwelling units in a mixed-use building; consideration of a conditional use in the TE District for a building exceeding five stories and 68 feet in height; consideration of a conditional use for a parking reduction of more than 20 automobile spaces and 25 percent or more of the required parking, and; consideration of a major alteration to a conditional use-planned multi-use site containing a hotel, all to allow the construction of a ten-story mixed-use building containing 5,500 square feet of commercial space and 75 apartments in a planned multi-use site containing a hotel, two approved office buildings, and a shared parking structure.
Note: These two items relate to a proposal for a large residential building along E. Main Street behind the already approved office tower and parking garage at S. Brearly and E. Washington and adjacent to an already approved office building behind the Hotel Indigo. Item 15 would change the land use recommendation for this block so that residential buildings would be allowed, which is a change from the Capital Gateway Corridor Plan that has focused residential on the Tenney-Lapham side of E. Washington. I support this change primarily because it will help activate E. Main Street.

- 402-414 E Washington Ave 8-12 N Franklin Street, and 9 N Hancock Street - Demolition Permit and Conditional Use - Demolish seven residential buildings and a commercial building to construct a nine-story mixed-use building with 1,200 square feet of commercial space and 148 apartments in Urban Design Dist. 4
