Alder Heck’s Updates

Updates & Week of Jan. 25 Meetings of Interest for District 2

January 23, 2021 6:15 PM

Special Note: Due to a State law, alders running for reelection in the April 2021 election are advised not to use city resources to communicate with constituents using mass emails and posts. For that reason, I am sending this update from my personal email and via non-city social media. Until this interpretation of the law changes or I am re-elected, I'll be sending mass communications via these means. Please continue to use district2@cityofmadison.com to contact me with input and questions on city issues.

126 Langdon Proposal
 
Steering Committee for 126 Langdon Proposal Meeting 
 
The Campus Area Neighborhood Association's steering committee that is beginning its evaluation of Core Spaces' new proposal for 126 Langdon will meet virtually on Thursday, Jan. 28, at 5pm. If you'd like to participate, contact CANA at canamadison@gmail.com and please notify neighbors who might want to participate but may not see this notification. 
 
CANA has compiled most of the documents related to the proposal and they can be found here. Core Spaces has altered the proposal in several ways, including a redesign of the Langdon Street section, two additional delivery parking stalls, and a reduction in bedrooms from 376 to 351. The proposal is now expected to be at Plan Commission on Feb. 22.
 

Housing Coop Ordinance Changes at Plan Commission on Jan. 25

At Monday's Plan Commission, there will be a consideration of a new ordinance that removes some barriers to the formation of housing cooperatives in residential and mixed-use zoning districts. The current ordinances and regulations related to housing coops will be repealed and replaced with new language that will also make it less of a burden for housing coops to be approved by the city. I have been working Alder Foster and city staff on this ordinance rewrite and am pleased that this proposed change has the potential to increase this type of affordable housing while building more intentional communities. See the Plan Commission agenda below in "City Meetings Of Interest" for more details.

12 N Few Proposal

12 N Few Proposal Update

The TLNA steering committee for the proposal for a mixed-use building at 12 N. Few Street, currently the Scooter Therapy location, is still expected to receive a draft steering committee report shortly. After the report is edited and approved by the committee, it will be sent to TLNA Council. It is possible that the architect for the proposal will make a presentation at the Feb. 11 TLNA monthly meeting, but that has not been verified. Typically, TLNA Council will use the steering committee report to help guide them as they decide whether or not to take a position on the proposal and what that position may be.

The proposal has not yet been submitted to the city, but I'll let you know as the schedule becomes clearer. If you have input for the steering committee, contact Andrew andrewh989@gmail.com or Meghan mjconlin@gmail.com, but you are always welcome to email me with input at district2@cityofmadison.com.

Zoning Text Amendments
 
Agenda Item 4
Amending Section 28.102 of the Madison General Ordinances to amend and replace maps for Well 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30, and repealing Sections 28.102(9) and 28.102(20).
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance amends maps of the Wellhead Protection Zone which restricts certain uses that may introduce contaminants into the City's drinking water system.
Note: This item includes a redefinition of the Protection Zone around Well #24 adjacent to Reynolds Park. Details are here
 
Agenda Item 5
SUBSTITUTE - Repealing and Recreating Subsection entitled "Housing Cooperative" of Section 28.151 of Madison General Ordinances. Amending the definition of "Housing Cooperative" in Section 28.211, amending Table 28C-1, Table 28D-2, Table 28E-2, Table 28F-1 and Table 28G-1 of Madison General Ordinances.
Sponsors: Patrick W. Heck, Grant Foster, Satya V. Rhodes-Conway
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:    First, this ordinance repeals and recreates the supplemental regulations for Housing Cooperatives. The primary change to the supplemental regulations is with respect to how to calculate occupancy limits.  The proposed occupancy calculation in this ordinance treats occupancy limits in housing cooperatives similarly to occupancy limits in equivalent residential dwelling units. Second, this ordinance expands the number of zoning districts in which Housing Cooperates can be established as a permitted use.  Third, this ordinance amends the definition of Housing Cooperative to clarify that areas like kitchen, living rooms, and dining rooms within an exclusive individual living area do not qualify as "common areas". Combined, these three changes create an easier and more equitable treatment of Housing Cooperatives, which staff believe will aid in the availability of affordable housing for Madison's residents, and provides clarification to the existing definition of Housing Cooperatives.
This substitute ordinance increases the potential occupancies of Housing Cooperatives, either by allowing higher occupancies before a conditional use is required (as in the case of Housing Cooperatives converted from lodging houses or Multi-Family Dwellings) or allowing for greater occupancies with conditional use approval (as in the case of single-family dwellings).
 
Conditional Use Request, Demolition Permits & Related Requests
 
Agenda Item 9
100 N Hamilton Street; 4th Ald. Dist.: Consideration of a demolition permit to demolish a portion of a museum to allow outdoor exhibition space and a new loading zone.
Note: This item is for the Madison Children's Museum. Details and plans are here.
