New Alder Committee Assignments for the New Term
 
Alders who were re-elected and new alders who were elected all started our new terms on April 20. Our two-year terms will end in April of 2023. I am excited to work with such a talented and diverse group of incoming alders - 8 of the 20 alders are newly elected - and to continue to work with my returning colleagues. This month alders also received our committee assignments for the coming term. My standing committees are:
 
  • Plan Commission
  • Public Safety Review Committee
  • Downtown Coordinating Committee
  • Public Market Development Committee
  • Committee on Aging
There are also openings on some committees appointed by Council leadership, but I won't know until next week which of those, if any, I will serve on. I anticipate (but don't know for sure) that I will at least be reappointed to the Ad Hoc Landmark Ordinance Review Committee. If you are interested in the work of these or other committees, please let me know, but I'll also highlight their agendas and work in this and future updates. Get more information about all of Common Council here.
 
Water Utility
 

Water Main Flushing Begins April 26 in Tenney-Lapham

Beginning Monday, April 26, the Water Utility will be conducting daytime flushing of water mains between N. Blair Street and the Yahara River on the Lake Mendota side of E. Washington Ave. More information on the water flushing program, its schedule, and clearing discolored water from your water pipes is available here.

 
12 N Few St Proposal
 
UDC Consideration of 12 N. Few Proposal On May 12
 
The Urban Design Commission will not consider the proposed redevelopment at 12 N. Few Street at their April 28 meeting and will instead consider it on May 12. UDC will consider two items: (1) the proposal's compliance with Urban Design District #8 standards and (2) a proposed amendment to UDD #8 to decrease setback requirements at the corner of N. Few and Curtis Court that allow a new building to be as close as 5 feet to the Curtis Court sidewalk. The remainder of Curtis Court's required setback would remain at 15 feet. The proposed redevelopment consists of 8 commercial spaces with 8 one-bedroom apartments. The application and a staff report from the earlier UDC informational presentation are posted here and updated plans, staff reports, etc., should be posted there as the UDC date draws closer.
 
The proposed demolition of the current addition on the N. Few Street side of the building and the demolition of the larger Scooter Therapy building's back wall was considered by the  Landmarks Commission in March. They found that the current Scooter Therapy building held no significant historic value. While many may find that the building does hold historic value, the Landmarks Commission must base its finding on current historic preservation standards. This finding of Landmarks will be forwarded to the Plan Commission who will consider the proposed demolition and UDD #8 amendment, likely our May 24 meeting. I will post agendas as they become available.
 
1046 E. Washington Restaurant UDC Consideration Also Postponed
 
The Urban Design Commission will not consider the restaurant proposed at 1046 E. Washington on the ground floor of Arden at their April 28 meeting. It is not yet clear when UDC will take up this application, but it could be on May 10. The owners of Red Sushi on W. Washington are planning a fast-casual restaurant that would open late summer or early fall if all approvals are obtained. Project plans can be found here. UDC will consider the proposal's compliance with Urban Design District #8 standards. At a yet-to-be determined date, Plan Commission will consider the proposal's Conditional Use Permit requests for a restaurant and for outdoor seating. If approved, the restaurant will have both indoor seating and outdoor patio seating along the alley between Lyric and Arden. TLNA Council earlier voted to support the restaurant's applications for Conditional Use Permits.

Seeking Common Council approval of the 2021-2022 Arts Grants awards funding as recommended by the Madison Arts Commission.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes approval of the Madison Arts Commission's recommendation for the 2021-2022 Arts Grants awards. The Madison Arts Commission received 57 applications, totaling $115,900 in requests. The commission recommends funding 57 projects totaling $100,175. The Planning Division's 2021 Adopted Operating Budget includes $103,880 to fund such grants recommended by the Madison Arts Commission. No additional City appropriation is required.
Note: See full list of proposed grant requests and recommendations here.
 
Agenda Item 5
Approving the Amendment to the Project Plan for Tax Incremental District (TID) 41 (University-Whitney), City of Madison.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes a second project plan amendment for Tax Incremental District (TID) #41 (University-Whitney). As stated in project plan, this amendment modifies the total costs that TID #41 may recover through tax increment to a total of $12,497,116, which is a $3 million increase from the 2019 project plan total. This increase is for storm sewer repairs that are included in the 2021 adopted capital budget. No additional City appropriation is required with the adoption of this resolution.
 
Agenda Item 6
Approving the Amendment to the Project Plan for Tax Incremental District (TID) 42 (Wingra), City of Madison.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes a second project plan amendment for Tax Incremental District (TID) #42 (Wingra) to provide funding to the Community Development Authority (CDA) for development and improvements at the Village on Park area and to authorize the use of these funds within a half mile area surrounding TID #42. As stated in the project plan, $11,200,000 will go towards a Village on Park parking structure, Urban League of Greater Madison Black Business Hub, owner occupied affordable housing, demolition of Village on Park north building, and construction of a new parking lot. These projects, along with additional authorization for land acquisition and administrative costs, will increase the total TIF eligible costs by $12.1 million in TID #42 to $28,173,000. The $12.1 million of additional projects will be funded by $9.1 million of borrowing and $3 million donated from TID #39. No additional City appropriation is required with the adoption of this resolution. A resolution amending the 2021 Adopted Budget will be required following adoption of the project plan amendment.
 
Agenda Item 7
Approving the Amendment to the Project Plan for Tax Incremental District (TID) 39 (Stoughton Road), City of Madison.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes a third project plan amendment for Tax Incremental District (TID) #39 (Stoughton Road) to provide assistance to South Madison by donating excess TID incremental revenue to TID #42. As stated in the project plan, this amendment will authorize a $3,000,000 donation from TID #39 to TID #42 in 2021, which increases the total TID #39 TIF eligible costs by $3 million to $11,363,000. Starting in 2021, TID #39 is estimated to generate $3,500,000 of incremental revenue annually. If no additional expenditures are made, the City estimates that TID #39 will have recovered all of its outstanding debts and be able to close by 2022 or 2023. No additional City appropriation is required with the adoption of this resolution. A resolution amending the 2021 Adopted Budget will be required following adoption of the project plan amendment.
 
Agenda Item 9
Amending the 2021 Adopted Capital Budget for the Community Development Authority - Redevelopment to create a Village on Park Redevelopment capital project and to authorize $3,000,000 in capital improvements at the Village on Park by the Community Development Authority, to be funded by incremental revenue proceeds from Tax Increment District (TID) No. 42. (14th A.D.)
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the CDA Redevelopment 2021 Adopted Capital Budget by creating a new Village on Park Redevelopment capital project and authorizing $3,000,000 in capital improvements. The $3,000,000 will be funded by TIF Proceeds from TID #42, which will be receiving a $3,000,000 transfer of incremental revenue from TID #39 pursuant to Legistar File ID 64795 and 64796. File 64795 amends TID #42's project plan to authorize this expense and additional projects at the Village on Park.
 
Agenda Item 10

Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2021 Adopted Capital Budget for CDA Redevelopment by authorizing an additional $1.5 million in project funding for the Mosaic Ridge Construction Financing capital project.
