400 E Wash Proposal

400 Block E. Washington Proposal at Plan Commission on Nov. 9

LZ Ventures proposal for the 400 block of E. Washington will be considered by the Plan Commission on Monday, Nov. 9 (see agenda and participation details below in Meetings of Interest). Proposed is a 10-story market rate 148-unit apartment building on E. Wash dropping to 6 stories in the rear along Hancock with 5 stories along Franklin. The height of the E. Washington section has been reduced by 9 feet and a story was removed from the Franklin Street rear section. Several levels of parking would be underneath. One 1,250 square foot commercial space is planned at the corner of E. Washington and N. Franklin rather than one at each front corner as in the earlier proposal.
 
The proposal's compliance with Urban Design District #4 guidelines and an advisory support for two additional floors were unanimously approved by the Urban Design Commission on Nov. 4. An earlier version, however, was rejected back in July by Plan Commission on a 4-3 vote on a motion to approve. Five votes were needed for that approval at Plan Commission, so the motion did not pass and the item was subsequently placed on file without prejudice, which provided the developer the option of resubmitting a new application.
 
In July, the three Plan Commissioners who voted no, including me, generally felt that the negative impacts of the building's height and mass on the neighboring properties were too great and that the future of nearby portions of the relatively affordable, diverse, and functioning James Madison Park neighborhood was endangered. I believe that most of those negative impacts have been reduced in the new design, but it is not clear if they have been sufficiently mitigated to warrant approval of the revised proposal.
 
Project plans and materials for the Plan Commission's consideration can be found here, including the Neighborhood Steering Committee Report and Planning Staff's report.
 
Plan Commission will consider five requested approvals needed for the proposal to move forward:
  1. a demolition permit and conditional uses to allow seven buildings to be demolished;
  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;
  4. a conditional use in the UMX District for a new building greater than 20,000 square feet and more than four stories, and
  5. a conditional use to construct two additional stories in Area H of the "Additional Heights Area Map" in MGO Section 28.071(b).
As before, this proposal includes demolition of the Klinke Cleaners building, 3 multi-flat houses, and 2 single-story commercial buildings, all between 402 and 414 E. Washington, as well as multi-flats at 9 N. Hancock, 8 N. Franklin, and 12 Franklin Streets. The proposed demolitions include several buildings that some judge to be historically significant and/or contributors to the historic fabric of the neighborhood, although they are not in a local or national historic district and they are not locally landmarked for preservation.
 
Shared Streets Sign
 
Madison's Shared Streets Program Concludes for 2020
Madison's successful Shared Streets program has ended for the remainder of 2020 to allow for effective winter maintenance of these areas, including on Sherman Ave. and E. Mifflin St. The program, which limited non-residential motor vehicle access to streets to open the street to physically distanced walking and biking during COVID-19, received favorable citywide feedback. People who drive these streets should continue to drive slowly and use caution as people continue to need space to social distance while walking and biking.
 
** Survey Opportunity **
 
Traffic Engineering will be using the winter to evaluate the Shared Streets Program to determine how to best move forward in 2021. The City is reaching out to the public to help gather information on the current program. Community members are encouraged to complete the Shared Streets Survey by December 1. If you have questions, contact Renee Callaway, City of Madison Pedestrian Bicycle Administrator, recallaway@cityofmadison.com
 
City Budget
 

2021 Capital and Operating Budgets To Be Considered by Common Council

The 2021 Capital and Operating Budgets will be finalized on Nov. 10 and 11. The evening of Nov. 12 has also been reserved should the deliberations not be completed on the 11th. Public Comment will be accepted on the budget (see "Details" for the Common Council in Meetings of Interest below for the agendas and participation options). It is possible that Public Comment opportunities will be limited to the evening of Tuesday, so I recommend registering your opinion or to speak for that evening. You can also email me (district2@cityofmadison.com) or allalders@cityofmadison.com with your input.
 
Both the Capital and Operating Budgets that were amended by the Finance Committee are proceeding to these final evenings of consideration. The 12 Capital Budget amendments and the 25 Operating Budget amendments considered earlier by Finance Committee and their disposition can be found here and here, respectively. Additional amendments to both budgets have been proposed for consideration this week:
 
The table below shows the overall 2021 Capital Budget as proposed by the Mayor (Executive Budget), as amended by Finance Committee, and with the impact of the 9 proposed amendments. To a great extent, the Capital Budget is funded by borrowing, so each year the city tries to minimize the amount of borrowing to keep the associated costs as low as feasible given city's infrastructure needs.
 
Capital Budget Table
 
Similarly, the table below shows 2021 Operating Budget as proposed by the Mayor (Executive Budget), as amended by Finance Committee, and with the impact of the 11 proposed amendments. This table also indicates that if all 11 Operating Budget amendments were to pass as is, the cumulative impact on the budget would exceed our state-mandated Levy Capacity by $273,122, so some of these amendments will fall by the wayside simply due to financial caps placed on Wisconsin municipalities by our regressive legislature.
 
Operating Budget Table
 
Since it is likely that some amendments to the Capital and Operating Budgets will pass and some will fail due to alders' varying opinions on city priorities and functions and/or fiscal concerns, the evenings will be full of important discussions. The budget are a reflection of both the city's values and implementation of the fiscal responsibilities of alders and the mayor, so results of these considerations decide city priorities and help to shape future policy directions and implementation strategies.
 
There are several amendments in both budgets that I lean towards supporting or opposing, but mostly I am still evaluating. You can read about some of them in this WI State Journal article. but I also recommend reading about the intent, cost, and funding source of each amendment at the links above.
 
It seems to me that the $4.195 million worth of proposed additional Capital spending and ~$870k of proposed additional Operating spending are small in comparison to the overall size of both budgets ($162 million and $255 million, respectively). Alders and the public will spend many, many hours this week discussing details of the amendments, yet these items, while important, are only a very small part of the overall annual budgets.
 
The vast majority of the budget will barely be discussed this week and could be considered already "baked". The process of devising the larger budget does have opportunities for public comment and input as it is crafted, but true community engagement that is accessible to all will need to be undertaken in the future if the community's values are to truly be taken into consideration. The City had big plans for designing and implementing a much wider and inclusive budget process for this year, but the COVID-19 pandemic short-circuited those plans during the spring and into the summer when virtual meetings and city processes were still adjusting to our new reality. I hope next year's budgeting process will vastly expand opportunities for the public to help shape our entire budget.
 
As always, you can find full budget information here and the results of this week's considerations will be reflected there.
 

Back-to-Back Neighborhood Meetings on Monday, Nov. 16

** Meeting 1: Nov. 16, 5:30pm - 2021 Gorham Resurfacing Project **
 
Following the sanitary sewer replacement work on Gorham St. in 2020, the City is planning to resurface the Gorham pavement in 2021 from Baldwin to Butler Streets. In most locations, this will involve a mill and overlay of the pavement surface and replacement of the pavement markings. The City is also proposing to install bumpouts at the pedestrian crossings nearest James Madison Park. The blocks between Brearly and Baldwin Streets are more narrow than the other blocks of Gorham, so there are currently no bike lanes on these blocks. Staff are currently reviewing options for how to continue the bike lane on Gorham to Baldwin.
 
A public information meeting on the Gorham project has been scheduled for 5:30 p.m., Nov. 16, 2020, via Zoom. Register here for the Nov. 16, 2020 meeting. Read more about the project here where you can also sign up to get email notifications about the project.

** Meeting 2: Nov. 16, 6:30pm - BRT Configuration Along E. Washington **
 
Please join Madison Metro for a virtual neighborhood meeting where we will hear about the planned first phase of the Bus Rapid Transit system here in Madison - and in particular, some possible changes to East Washington Ave. The meeting will be held on Monday, Nov. 16, 6:30 p.m. City Department of Transportation officials will update participants on the progress of the BRT project.

Modifications to the East Washington Ave. corridor will be presented. For example, the project is considering the creation of bus-only lanes running down the center of the roadway, as opposed to the curb side of the street, to preserve parking and bike lanes for a portion of the day. Center-running bus lanes have several advantages, such as allowing on-street parking to remain during most hours of the day, allowing for better bicycle accommodations and fostering an improved pedestrian environment. The creation center-running bus lanes would also potentially restrict left turns by autos at up to 5 intersections on East Washington.

You can join the BRT virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering at: https://madisonwi.link/ewavirtual

Active Enforcement of Peak Hour Lane Restrictions Resume Regular Enforcement Schedule

On Monday, Nov. 16, active enforcement of peak hour parking regulations will return to normal. Citations will resume for these restrictions. Though the restrictions were never officially lifted, leniency was given due to lower peak hour traffic rates since March. Note that in District 2, the peak hour lane along E. Johnson Street west of N. Blair is included in this enforcement area, and that Residential Permit Parking and 1-hr & 2-hr non-metered restrictions remain temporarily suspended. Details and more information here.

Unemployment Graph from Dashboard

New: COVID Response Dashboard
 
Over the past 6 months City staff have been working to develop a tool to track local indicators in order better understand how our residents and community are doing throughout the pandemic. The final product from this work is an interactive dashboard with 50+ indicators organized into 9 categories. An example graph from the dashboard is shown above. This tool has been available internally for staff since September and has just been released to the public. You can now access the dashboard by going to the City's Coronavirus website and clicking Recovery Dashboard in the right column.
 

There is a lot of great information being tracked through this resource. To help everyone engage with the tool, the Data and Innovation Team will release monthly digests summarizing major changes that have happened from month to month. Check out the October digest here.

Save the Date: Nov. 18 Beacon Community Meeting

The homeless day resource center at 615 E. Washington is hosting another community meeting on Nov. 18 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm via Zoom. Their staff will be providing a Beacon COVID-19 update, discussing community engagement, and address any concerns that are presented. Participation details are below, but email Michael Moody at The Beacon if you have questions.

Reminder: TLNA Steering Committee Forming for N. Few Redevelopment Proposal

The Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association is forming a steering committee to work with the developer on the proposed redevelopment at 12 N. Few Street, currently the site of Scooter Therapy. TLNA Development Chair Meghan Conlin will be leading that process, so contact Meghan at mjconlin@gmail.com if you'd like to participate or I'd be happy to pass along your information. Neighborhood meeting attendees biggest concern about the proposal related to a lack of on-site parking and the potential impact on street parking on nearby streets. I imagine those will be topics of discussion for the steering committee, as well as other impacts on the adjacent neighborhood and some design concerns.

At an Oct. 28 virtual neighborhood meeting, SEA Design presented their concept for a proposed retention of the bulk of the Scooter Therapy building and a demolition of 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. Underneath each apartment would be a garage space that 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 be leased to a small business separately.

PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS
 
Zoning Text Amendments
 
Agenda Item 6
SUBSTITUTE - Amending Sections 28.211, 28.061, 28.072, 28.082 and 28.091 and Creating Section 28.141(8)(e) of the Madison General Ordinances to create a new use, Electric Vehicle Charging Facility, and to require that certain parking facilities are constructed or reconstructed to include a specified amount of Electric Vehicle Ready Spaces and Electric Vehicle Installed Spaces
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance addresses charging stations and charging facilities for electric cars.  Because of the different needs associated with them, this ordinance does not address electric bicycles, which will have to be addressed in a separate ordinance.  That is consistent with recent state law changes that exclude electric bicycles from the definition of "motor vehicle".
See full Drafter's Analysis here.
Note: While I generally support this proposed ordinance, I am concerned about how it could unfairly burden owners of smaller existing surface parking lots that might incur larger than expected expenses when installing/extending a power source that will need to run the parking lot, particularly in tightly packed urban environments. There are also some questions I have concerning EV requirements for residential and commercial condominiums, but I anticipate that there could be a small adjustment or two to clarify the intent in these situations.
 
Agenda Item 7
Amending portions of Madison General Ordinance 28.061 to allow Mission House as a Permitted/Conditional Use in the CC and CC-T Districts and amending Madison General Ordinance 28.151 to require that mission houses operating as permitted use must receive funding from and enter into a service delivery contract with the City of Madison.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance allows mission house as a permitted/conditional use in the Commercial Center (CC) and Commercial Corridor-Transitional (CC-T) districts. It also creates an additional supplemental regulation for mission house that provides mission houses are only permitted (by right) if they receive funding from the City of Madison and have an executed service delivery contract with the City of Madison.  All other mission houses will continue to require conditional use approval.
 
Agenda Item 8
Amending Madison General Ordinance 28.151 to allow a dwelling space to be located alongside a work space in a Live/Work unit.
 
Zoning Map Amendments & Related Requests
 
Note: Items 12 and 13 are related and should be considered together 
 
Agenda Item 12
SUBSTITUTE. Creating Sections 28.022 - 00468 of the Madison General Ordinances to change the zoning of properties located at 1-19 North Pinckney Street, 120 East Washington Avenue and 22 North Webster Street, 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 to PD(SIP) Planned Development (Specific Implementation Plan) District.
Note: Items 12 and 13 relate to Urban Land Interests' proposed American Exchange Development between N. Webster and N. Pinckney Streets on the north side of E. Washington. The AC Hotel and Eno Vino restaurant atop the AC, which are in District 2 rather than in District 4 like the redevelopment site, have expressed concerns about the proposed development blocking views of the Capitol Building from Eno Vino. ULI has changed the E. Washington side of the design to address the issue, but the AC Hotel and Eno Vino remain concerned that the public spaces on the top two floors of the AC are substantially impacted.
 
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 & Related Requests
 
Agenda Item 23
402-414 E Washington Avenue, 8-12 N Franklin Street, and 9 N Hancock Street; Urban Design Dist. 4; 2nd Ald. Dist.: Consideration of a demolition permit to allow seven buildings to be demolished; consideration of a conditional use in the Urban Mixed-Use (UMX) District for a multi-family dwelling with more than eight (8) dwelling units; consideration of a conditional use in the UMX District for outdoor recreation; consideration of a conditional use in the UMX District for a new building greater than 20,000 square feet and more than four stories; and consideration of a conditional use to construct two additional stories in Area H of the "Additional Heights Area Map" in MGO Section 28.071(2) (b), all to allow construction of a ten-story, mixed-use building containing 1,200 square feet of commercial space and 148 apartments.
