Shared Streets Program
 
Last Chance: Shared Streets Survey Open Until Dec. 1
 
City 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, so residents are encouraged to complete the Shared Streets Survey by December 1. The program included limiting non-residential motor vehicle access to streets such as Sherman Ave. and E. Mifflin to open the them to physically distanced walking and biking during COVID-19. More information on the suspension of Share Streets for the winter is here.

Capitol Neighborhoods Virtual Forum with Downtown Madison Police Representatives

From CNI: Join your neighbors and Police Officers Kraig Kalka and Kenneth Brown for a conversation about recent events in Madison's downtown neighborhoods. The event will be held on December 3rd, via Zoom. Discussion will begin at 7:00 PM and conclude at 8:00 PM.

The event will begin with brief introductions of the police representatives, then proceed to questions submitted to the organizers prior to and during the meeting. Attendees will be able to submit questions to the organizers by email at Info@CapitolNeighborhoods.org before the meeting or through the Zoom chat feature during the event. Attendees are strongly encouraged to email questions or concerns prior to the event in order to help facilitate a more productive meeting. If we have extra time after our submitted questions are answered, we may open the event to follow-up Q&A from attendees. In that event, we will ask that folks limit their questions and comments to three minutes per person in order to ensure that other neighbors also have the opportunity to speak.

E. Gorham Repaving Project

 
Did You Miss the E. Gorham Repaving Public Information Meeting?
 
You can view the Nov. 16, 2020, Virtual Public Information Meeting Recording and Meeting Presentation on the project website here. You also sign up for project email notifications there, as well as get contact info. The meeting presentation and recording include many project details, including some of the options that staff is reviewing for extension of the bike lane on Gorham between Few and Brearly Streets to connect to Tenney Park. There are also several options being discussed for installation of traffic calming measures along Gorham as part of this 2021 project, but because this is a repaving project rather than a full reconstruction project, it is not certain that all of the project area (N. Baldwin to N. Butler Street) will see such changes. Many residents have gave good input at the public meeting and have contacted me and city staff with ideas and input, which is much appreciated and helpful.
 

At their Nov. 18 meeting, Transportation Commission approved an option that included reducing on-street parking spaces between Few and Brearly and adding a bike lane. It is expected that the Board of Public Works Public Hearing on the project will be on Dec. 16 followed by Common Council consideration on Jan. 1. Both will provide opportunities for public comment. I'll publish the agendas and participation details for those meetings the weekends prior. 

Dec. 9 Virtual Neighborhood Meeting on Temporary Men's Shelter Location

From the Community Development Division: Please join us for a virtual neighborhood meeting where we will have a discussion with City staff and the shelter operator about the temporary use of 200 N. First Street as an overnight shelter operation serving men experiencing homelessness. The virtual meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 9, at 7:00 p.m. Note: I will publish the meeting registration information in next weekend's Alder Update.

Neighborhood Meeting for New Alcohol License on Dec. 7

On Monday, Dec. 7, 2020, at 6:00pm, there will be a virtual neighborhood meeting to discuss an application for a new Class B Liquor & Beer License at 708 1/4 E. Johnson Street, formerly the location of Forequarter. Michael Parks is opening Hone, a contemporary American restaurant with comfort food to-go and an elevated dining room experience. He proposes a liquor license for 7 days per week with hours from 5am to 4am with 50% of sales coming from food and 50% coming from alcohol with alcohol. Liquor could be served only when legally allowed, ending at bar time of 2am. Neighbors are invited to attend the virtual meeting via Zoom at the link below. If you have input and cannot attend the meeting, feel free to contact me.

12 N Few St Proposal
 
TLNA Steering Committee for N. Few Proposal to Meet Dec. 10
 
The Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association steering committee for the proposed redevelopment at 12 N. Few St., currently the site of Scooter Therapy, will hold its first meeting the evening of Dec. 10, starting at 6:00pm. TLNA Development Chair Meghan Conlin and Andrew Horn will be leading the steering committee process. Contact Andrew andrewh989@gmail.com or Meghan mjconlin@gmail.com if you need information.
 

SEA Design proposes retention of the bulk of the Scooter Therapy building; demolition of a smaller and shorter section, and the construction a new building addition in the current parking lot area. Eight one-bedroom apartments would fill the second floor and with 8 garage spaces underneath that would be designed to promote live-work arrangements or be leased to a small business separately.

The biggest concern that neighbors have expressed so far is the relatively small amount of on-site parking and the potential impact on street parking on nearby streets. The steering committee will be discussing this and other observations with the developer starting at the Dec. 10 meeting.

Where to Get Info on Winter Streets, Parking, and Snow

As we begin our journey through another winter, remember to use the City of Madison winter website as it has a plethora of useful winter information. You can learn about snow emergencies, winter parking rules, and sign up for alerts to know where to park so your vehicle is not ticketed or towed. You can learn the locations of where to get free sand for your sidewalks and driveways. You can learn about winter recreation opportunities like ice skating and snowshoeing. And you can learn about the proper way to spread salt to help minimize the effect it has on our environment and drinking water. The City's winter website is www.cityofmadison.com/winter.

____________________________
 
Finance Committee: Details
4:30pm, Monday, Nov. 30, 2020
 
ITEMS TO BE CONSIDERED
 
Agenda Item 2
Authorizing the execution of a contract with MSA Professional Services, Inc. and the expenditure of up to $100,000 for Survey of Condition ("Blight Study") Services for the creation of Tax Increment Districts ("TIDs") and Redevelopment Districts.
 
Agenda Item 7
Authorizing the process to select a Public Art feature for Metro Phase II and Phase IIIA
 
Agenda Item 11
Authorizing the Transit General Manager to enter into an agreement with the State of Wisconsin and required terms to accept the Volkswagen Mitigation Program/Transit Capital Assistance Grant Program Award of funds not to exceed $7,522,500 to purchase 15 replacement diesel buses and dispose of the corresponding older fleet in 2022.
 
Agenda Item 14
A Resolution amending the 2020 Public Health Operating Budget to accept $100,000 from the WI Department of Health Services and authorizing the Director of Public Health Madison and Dane County to sign a non-competitive contract with Harambee Village Doulas, LLC to pilot a prenatal care and doula program for women at high risk of adverse birth outcomes in Dane County.
 
Agenda Item 18
Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute an Amendment to the Structural Agreement with Overture Center Foundation, Inc. and an Annual Performance Contract for the 2021 operations of the Overture Center, and providing for a grant from the City.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the 2021 contract between the City of Madison and the Overture Center. The 2021 budget adopted by the Common Council in November 2020, includes $1,500,000 as the City's subsidy to support Overture operations, a $300,000 increase from the $1.2 million subsidy provided in 2020. The original 2020 subsidy amount of $2,095,000, approved in November 2019 was reduced to $1.2 million in July 2020, due to the impact of the economic effects of the global pandemic on room tax collections in 2020. The City's contribution is authorized by the Room Tax Commission and fully funded through the Room Tax Fund.
 
Agenda Item 19
Approve the 2021 Urban Forestry Special Charge
Fiscal Note
The City of Madison's 2021 Adopted Operating Budget anticipates $5,706,804 in revenue from the Urban Forestry Special Charge, an increase of $481,463 (9.2%) over the 2020 budgeted revenue of $5,225,341. The 2021 rate recovers the City's costs associated with forestry efforts. These expenditures are budgeted in the 2021 Streets Division operating budget. Activities supported by these services include stump removal, tree removal and replacement, and general maintenance of the City's urban forest.
 
Agenda Item 20
Accepting the final report and recommendations from the Task Force on Municipal Golf in Madison Parks.
Fiscal Note
The final report of the Task Force on Municipal Golf in Madison Parks proposes 10 changes to the operations of the City's Municipal Golf Program. Many of these changes, if adopted, will result in a fiscal effect. Changes with the greatest fiscal implications include:
1. Establish a plan and timeline to eliminate 18 holes at Yahara Hills: The fiscal impact is unknown at this time, but it is likely that there would be expenditure savings from the reduction in holes at Yahara. Annual expenditures averaged $1.3m from 2016 to 2019, with course deficits ranging from $47k to $125k each year.
2. Issue an RFP to evaluate a private or non-profit operator for Monona: Annual expenses of operating Monona range from $460k to $523k, with revenues ranging from $380k to $443k. From 2016-2019, revenues were not sufficient to cover expenses.
3. Ensure that if City resources are used to invest in capital projects at golf courses, it is done in an equitable and fiscally responsible manner to reduce negative impact on park services: The Task Force report outlines the capital needs of the courses, which include increased capital costs of $28-57 million over the next 20 years, and annual operating costs of $4.9-7.4m in debt service.
4. Not sell park land to fund capital improvements of the golf courses.
Additionally, the Task Force recommends removing the enterprise fund designation from the City's golf courses. While no fiscal impact is anticipated, designating golf as an enterprise fund allows for closer tracking of assets, liabilities, cash flow and other measures of this program activity. This designation does not prohibit providing a property tax subsidy to golf operations, if that is a priority of the Mayor and Common Council. It does reflect that golf is primarily a business activity of the city and is primarily funded by user fees.
The Parks Division did not reflect any Task Force recommendations in their 2021 budget request. The budget request reflects revenues that are $530k higher than 2019 actual levels, and does not include any expenditure reductions.
 
Agenda Item 21
2020 Budget: 3rd Quarter Projections
Note: Presentation can be found here.
 
Agenda Item 23
Amending the 2020 Adopted Budget to accept and appropriate $4.1 million from the State of Wisconsin Routes to Recovery program.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2020 Adopted Operating Budget to appropriate funds received through the State Routes to Recovery program. This program was set up to reimburse local governments for unbudgeted expenditures as resulting from response efforts to the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, the City has incurred $11.2 million in expenses associated with the COVID response. The largest share ($2.6 million) of expenses are related to a portion of the Public Health costs associated with the response.
The City of Madison has been allocated $4.1 million through this program. Recent guidance from the Department of Administration allows local governments to request additional reimbursement above the initial allocation. The City has requested reimbursement for additional expenditures. This resolution allows the Finance Director to accept those funds if awarded. If such award happens, the Finance Director will report back to Common Council how the funds were applied.
 
Agenda Item 24
Amending the 2020 Adopted Operating Budget to appropriate funds awarded to Madison Metro through the CARES Act Program.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2020 Adopted Operating budget to appropriate a portion of the CARES Act allocation that was awarded to Metro Transit earlier this year. Based on the 3rd Quarter projection, Metro is expected to end 2020 with a $3.0m deficit driven primarily by revenue shortfalls. The Yearend Resolution (Legislative File 62987) also proposes eliminating the General Fund subsidy ($8.5 million) to Metro that was included in the 2020 Adopted Budget. Based on these two factors Metro's yearend deficit will be $11.6 million.
The proposed resolution seeks to fund the deficit by appropriating $11.6m from the CARES Act award in the 2020 Operating Budget. The 2021 Adopted Budget assumes utilizing $3.1m from the CARES Act allocation. Based on these amounts there will approximately $9.8m available for future uses.
 
Agenda Item 26
Amending the City's 2021 Adopted Capital Budget by appropriating $3.0 million in GO Borrowing within the Community Development Budget for a Temporary Family Shelter project; and, authorizing the execution of a six-month Lease Agreement between the City of Madison and Watson Smith LLC for the City's lease of the property located at 4502 Milwaukee Street (the "Property") with the option to purchase the property prior to the end of that lease, and authorizing the City to enter into a sub-lease of the Property with the Salvation Army for the purpose of supporting the provision of temporary family shelter services.

A Resolution amending the 2020 Public Health Operating Budget to accept $100,000 from the WI Department of Health Services and authorizing the Director of Public Health Madison and Dane County to sign a non-competitive contract with Harambee Village Doulas, LLC to pilot a prenatal care and doula program for women at high risk of adverse birth outcomes in Dane County.
 
Agenda Item 7
City of Madison Ordinance Amendment 7 62738 Amending Sections 7.07(8)(g), 7.08(7)(b), 7.15(6)(e), 7.52(4), and 7.53(4) of the Madison General Ordinances to decrease various fee schedules.
Fiscal Note
The 2020 Adopted Operating Budget included increasing Public Health's licensed establishment fees by 17%. A portion of this revenue was intended to fund two newly created positions (1.0 Sanitarian and 1.0 Supervisor). Due to the COVID pandemic and related mandates, many licensed establishments were closed temporarily and the fee increase was suspended due to the financial impacts of COVID on these establishments. As a result, filling the two positions was also put on hold.
The 2021 Executive Budget includes revenue that assumes the 17% fee increase along with maintaining funding for the newly created positions. An amendment was adopted during the Finance Committee deliberations to remove the positions and to reduce budgeted revenue from this fee to be in line with the current rates. This legislation codifies the lower fees in the City's ordinances.
Licensed Establishments is a revenue based service within Public Health, meaning that any excess of revenue over expenses for this service at yearend is restricted for use within the Licensed Establishment service. At the end of 2019, the restricted fund balance was $466,775. It is anticipated that $335,000 will be added in 2020.
There is no impact on the City General Fund appropriation with this change.

REFERRALS FROM THE COMMON COUNCIL
 
Agenda Item 5
SUBSTITUTE. Directing City Staff to Address Encampments in the City Parks and to Investigate Other Temporary Housing Options for the Unsheltered Homeless Population.
NOTE: Recommendation From the Floor will be needed at the 12/1/20 Common Council meeting.
10/14/20 Public Safety Review Committee recommended to PLACE ON FILE
10/15/20 Equal Opportunities Commission recommended to PLACE ON FILE
10/19/20 City-County Homeless Issues Committee recommended to PLACE ON FILE
11/4/20 Board of Park Commissioners recommended to APPROVE
11/5/20 Community Development Block Grant Committee recommended to APPROVE
Fiscal Note
Emergency Order #2, issued on May 6, 2020, permits City staff to create temporary permissible encampments (TPEs) in parks and greenways to which City ordinances that prohibit camping would not apply. This order was intended to align with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, which recommended that municipalities refrain from breaking up TPEs, and instead encourage sanitation and social distancing at TPEs. Since this Emergency Order, three TPEs have been created. Homeless individuals have also continued to reside unlawfully in encampments outside of TPEs.
The proposed resolution requires City staff to prioritize identification of individuals experiencing unsheltered homelessness, and make efforts to connect them with suitable housing. Once an individual is offered an alternate legal housing option, they would no longer be permitted to use the TPE. Within 30 days of this resolution's adoption, the Community Development Division must prepare a report for the Council that: (1) assesses the extent of the impact of camping sites on the City's parks, (2) outlines existing housing options for those experiencing unsheltered homelessness, (3) identifies financial and physical resources that may be available to assist the homeless, (4) looks for a near and long-term solution to emergency shelter needs to take the burden off of the Warner Park Community Recreation Center, and (5) suggests options that may be pursued by the City and its partners to better provide for this population.
No additional appropriation is required.
Note: I am still inclined to oppose this substitute order as it potentially denies access to safer outdoor spaces for some of those experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Agenda Item 6
A Resolution authorizing the placement of advisory referendum questions related to the structure of city government on the Spring 2021 general election ballot. 
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the placement of advisory referendum questions to the spring 2021 ballot regarding the structure of City government. Additionally, the resolution instructs City officials to develop plans for informing the public and evaluating the results of the referendum questions. If the proposed referendum questions increase the ballot length, the City will incur additional costs from the County Clerk. The City Clerk has begun discussions with the County Clerk to determine potential costs. However, these conversations have been delayed as the County is currently conducting a recount of the presidential election ballots. Historically, ballot printing costs have varied by approximately $3,000. Any dramatic increases associated with ballot or planning costs may require additional appropriation.
Resolution #58656, which accepted the final report of the Task Force on Government Structure, discusses initial estimates associated with structure changes and estimates an additional $1m in costs from transitioning to a full-time council.
Ald. Barbara Harrington-McKinney submitted an ALTERNATE Resolution for CCEC consideration (see attachment)
NOTE: Recommendation From the Floor will be needed at the 12/1/20 Common Council meeting.

2nd 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.
Sponsors: Syed Abbas, Tag Evers, Grant Foster, Satya V. Rhodes-Conway, Patrick W. Heck, Max Prestigiacomo and Michael E. Verveer
Recent Legislative History
11/9/20 PLAN COMMISSION    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT WITH CONDITIONS - RECESSED PUBLIC HEARING
PARTIAL 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".
This ordinance also creates a requirement that certain commercial and residential parking facilities of a certain size and constructed after the effective date of this ordinance be constructed so that up to 50% of all spaces are electric vehicle ready (served with conduit/raceways and panel capacity to allow for the future installation of an EV changing station) and up to 10% of all spaces be served by at least a Level II electric vehicle charging station.  These EV ready and EV installed requirements will phase in 5-year increments, beginning on January 1, 2021, to account for current and future market needs.

Legislative History 11/19/20
Attorney's Office    Referred for Introduction
Transportation Policy and Planning Board
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Wis. Stat. § 349.18(2) authorizes municipalities to choose whether to have an ordinance requiring local bicycle registration.  Sec. 12.78 set up a City bicycle registration system that required owners and operators to register their bicycles with the City and required bicycle dealers to register bicycles purchased from their dealership.  The repeal of this ordinance eliminates mandatory City bicycle registration.  Instead of requiring registration with the City, the City will encourage bicycle owners to voluntarily register their bicycles through free national bicycle registrations services.
 
Agenda Item 85
Amending Sec. 3.53(3)(b) and creating Section 3.53(10) of the Madison General Ordinances.
