CARES Logo

Alternative Emergency Response Initiative Launches Sept. 1

C.A.R.E.S. Program An Additional Resource for Behavioral Health Emergencies

A new initiative designed to provide alternative emergency response for individuals who are in crisis is set to launch next week. The Madison Fire Department's Community Alternative Response Emergency Services (CARES) team will begin responding to 911 calls effective September 1, 2021.

Modeled after successful patient-centered programs like the STAR program in Denver, Colorado and CAHOOTS in Portland, Oregon, CARES consists of two response teams comprised of one Madison Fire community paramedic and one Journey Mental Health crisis worker. These teams are trained and equipped to respond to non-violent behavioral health emergency calls that do not require law enforcement.

By September 1, the CARES teams will have completed more than 170 hours of extensive training over the course of two months. This curriculum included 40-hour crisis intervention training through the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), cultural competency training, de-escalation training, suicide prevention and risk assessment, trauma-informed care, and more, exceeding the standard in behavioral health training for paramedics. Journey Mental Health crisis workers have been trained on dispatch radio protocol and 911 response, as well as other Madison Fire Department policies and operating procedures. Additionally, the CARES teams have been building relationships throughout the community at local resource centers, shelters, and mental health care facilities.

The CARES initiative will be headquartered at Fire Station 3 on Williamson Street. Their uniform will be more casual than that of other first responders you may see in your neighborhood, but they will always have credentials clearly visible. Their response vehicle is a grey Chrysler Pacifica minivan branded with the CARES logo.

CARES is designed to serve as an additional available resource for behavioral health emergencies that occur in our community. A cornerstone of the initiative is to ensure that medical and behavioral healthcare is integrated at the onset of crisis intervention, increasing patient satisfaction while diverting people away from emergency rooms and jails.

During this early phase of the initiative, the CARES teams will be in service 40 hours per week (weekdays, 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.) responding to calls in the central district.

District 2 New Liquor License Applications

AfterShock Classic Arcade
A new Class B Beer & Liquor license application has been submitted by Brad Van Kauwebergh for a new business that will replace Maria's Bar in the front of 1444 E. Washington and is across the hall from the Parched Eagle. Brad and his business partner, Chris Welch, propose a full service bar open 11am to 2am Sunday through Saturday for a new business called Aftershock Classic Arcade (see Common Council Agenda Item 146 below in City Meetings of Interest for more information). The liquor license application is expected to be at the Alcohol License Review Committee on Sept. 29. The new business has also applied for a Change of Use due to the arcade also taking over the former Art-In space behind Maria's Bar. The Change of Use application is expected to be at Plan Commission later in September. There will also be a public information meeting concerning the liquor license application onsite on Sunday, Sept, 12 at noon if neighbors have questions or input, but you are also welcome to email me with input (district2@cityofmadison.com).
 
Dark Horse Artbar
A Class B Beer & Liquor license application has been submitted by Patrick DePula for a new business called Dark Horse Artbar in the now-closed Star Bar location at 756 E. Washington (first floor of the Constellation). An Entertainment License has also been applied for by Dark Horse Artbar at the same location. The liquor license application proposes a full service bar that will be open from 4pm to 2am, Tuesday thru Sunday. See Common Council Agenda Item 147 below in City Meetings of Interest for more information. The liquor license application is expected to be at the Alcohol License Review Committee on Sept. 29. The public information meeting for this application has not yet been scheduled.
 
Jacknife
A new Class B Beer & Liquor license application has been submitted by Tanya Zhykharevich for the planned Jacknife Restaurant at 1046 E. Washington Ave on the ground floor of Arden. Owners Tanya Zhykharevich? and Jack Yip propose operating 7 days per week with nightly closing hours expected to be 10pm Sunday through Thursday and 11pm on Friday/Saturday. At earlier meetings, the Plan Commission granted the required conditional use permits and the Urban Design Commission approved the design for the outdoor patio with the conditions that all customers and employees must vacate the patio area by 10pm at the latest. Additionally, no amplified music will be allowed on the patio. See Common Council Agenda Item 151 below in City Meetings of Interest for more information on the alcohol license application. The public information meeting for this application is anticipated on Sept. 16 (details to follow) while the application is expected to be at the Alcohol License Review Committee on Sept. 29.
 

Gorham Speed Limit Signs

Traffic Engineering Making Changes to Slow E. Gorham Traffic

From City Traffic Engineering:

It appears that drivers often feel that they can travel faster on new smooth roadway surfaces after a reconstruction/resurfacing project. In response to concerns expressed by those living on or near E. Gorham Street, City Traffic Engineering continues to address infrastructure changes due to unsafe and illegal driving. 

Coordinated signal timing along both Johnson & Gorham from Baldwin to Wisconsin were already very close to promoting the posted 25-mph speed limit. Individual segments had a calculated, progressed speed slightly closer to 30-mph, so they adjusted these by several seconds in a few of the day plans.

By observation, vehicles that travel at approximately the posted speed can progress quite well and vehicles that travel above the speed limit are frequently stopped. Obviously, the tendency remains for some vehicles to travel above the posted speed between signals even if it means being delayed at a downstream signal. Also some vehicles turning onto Gorham/Johnson between signals from the side streets can travel faster and catch the green lights but they will be normally stopped at the next signal.

TE also field checked all the speed limit signs, and issued a work order to add orange flags (see image above for an example location), relocate a few signs that are currently hidden behind trees and add a few new signs at strategic locations, to remind drivers on the speed limit. These sign changes will be implemented soon.

Sept. 2 Meeting of TLNA Steering Committee for WI Youth Symphony Orchestra Proposal

A Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association steering committee has formed for the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra proposal to redevelop a portion of the 1100 block of E. Washington that includes the Avenue Club parcels and its parking lots. Their latest plans included a three-story building with rehearsal spaces and offices with adjacent surface car parking. The steering committee will meet virtually on Thursday, Sept. 2 at 7:00pm to hear the latest from the development team and give further input on the proposal. As of publication of this update, the Zoom link for the meeting was not available, so please email mjconlin@gmail.com or president@tenneylapham.org to obtain that link and/or sign up for the committee email list. All are invited to participate.

A recording of the Aug. 5 neighborhood meeting on the proposal is available here.

St John's Lutheran Church

Sept. 8: St John's Church Redevelopment Proposal Steering Committee Meeting

Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 6:00pm is the first virtual meeting of the James Madison Park District steering committee that will be evaluating the proposal for the redevelopment of St. John's Lutheran Church at 322 E. Washington. St. John's, working with Urban Land Interests, is planning worship space and other services on the first floor of a new 10-story building with plans to add affordable apartments above and underground parking below. If you'd like to participate or simply join the steering committee email list, please email mariahrenz@gmail.com or bob.klebba@gmail.com. I'll publish the Zoom link for the meeting next weekend in my Alder Update.

Note that on Thursday, Sept. 2, St. John's will be making a presentation to the Community Development Block Grant Committee on their application for financial assistance from the City's Affordable Housing Fund. See the CDBG Committee in "City Meetings of Interest" below for the agenda and participation details. From their application to the city, it appears that they will seek $2.75 million from the Affordable Housing Fund. Many other details of the proposal are included in that application. Some information can also be obtained by watching the recorded August 18 neighborhood meeting here.

From MPD: More Enforcement Efforts in District 2

1. Speed & Seatbelt Enforcement - E. Washington Ave.
On Monday, 8/23/21, Officers from the Madison Police Department conducted an enhanced traffic enforcement project on E Washington Ave. near Breese Stevens Field. Officers focused on speeding and other hazardous traffic violations. During the project officers conducted a total of 26 stops. All stops were for vehicles traveling at least 15 MPH over the posted speed limit (25 MPH). The highest speed stopped was for 49 MPH.
 
2. Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Enforcement - E Gorham St
On Tuesday, 8/24/21, Officers from the Madison Police Department conducted an enhanced traffic enforcement project in the 900 block of E Gorham St. Officers focused on speeding and other hazardous traffic violations.

During the project officers conducted a total of 20 stops. All vehicles stopped were traveling at least 38 MPH in the 25 MPH zone. The highest speeds stopped was for 47 MPH.

Please slow down - these are heavily used by pedestrians and bicyclists.

These additional enforcement efforts are made possible through traffic overtime grants provided by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, and conducted in partnership with the Dane County Sheriff's Office.  Areas selected for targeted enforcement are based off of traffic crash data and Vision Zero Madison's High Injury Zone.

12 N Few Proposal

12 N. Few St. Proposal Approved

The redevelopment project proposed for 12 N. Few Street, the current site of the Scooter Therapy building, has obtained their requested approvals from both Urban Design Commission and Plan Commission. The redevelopment consists of 8 ground floor commercial spaces with 8 one-bedroom apartments above. As with any development, there is a lengthy list of conditions of approval that will need to be satisfied as the project moves toward construction, including negotiating with city staff concerning their plan for construction traffic and other impacts. District 2 is very familiar with how traffic, noise and dust need to be managed, so neighbors and I will be advocating for reducing those impacts as much as is possible,

Connect Greater Madison: Regional Transportation Plan 2050 Update – Interactive Mapping Tool Available for Submitting Comments

Having an efficient, reliable, and safe transportation network is important for making the Greater Madison Area a great place to live, work, and play. Whether you travel by automobile, transit, bicycle, or walking, or perhaps all of these, the quality of the overall transportation network is important.

We want to know how well the current area transportation network is serving your needs. Use the interactive mapping tool to post comments on the network, identifying specific gaps and challenges, as well as what you love and what's working well. This commenting tool is open and available from August 23 to October 3, 2021. In addition to using this tool to provide your own comments, please share this information with your networks, co-workers, friends, family, and neighbors.

This feedback is being sought as part of the Connect Greater Madison: Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) 2050 Update process. The RTP is an integrated, multi-modal plan that provides the overall framework for transportation planning and investment decision making in the region.  It identifies projects, strategies, and other recommended actions to be implemented by WisDOT, the MPO, Dane County, and local communities. The RTP is refined through corridor, area, or mode specific plans and other planning efforts.  Planning for the RTP is being integrated with the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission's (CARPC) preparation of the Regional Development Framework (RDF). The RTP will be designed to support the growth scenario developed as part of that effort, which is based on RDF goals and strategies and local comprehensive plans.

Results from our public survey earlier this summer are posted and available for review here, including presentation slides summarizing the results.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this important regional planning process.

ACTION ITEMS
 
Agenda Item 3
Creating Sec. 28.101 Mission Camp (MC) District, amending Sec. 28.211 to define Mission Camp, and amending Sec. 28.151 providing supplemental regulations for Mission Camps.
Sponsors: Patrick W. Heck, Grant Foster, Satya V. Rhodes-Conway, Yannette Figueroa Cole
 
Note: This agenda item, as well as items 4 and 5 below, have identical sponsors and are meant to enable future creations of regulated Mission Camps, Tiny Villages, and Portable Shelter Missions, respectively. They set up the Zoning and some of the regulatory framework for such entities and uses to legally exist and do not designate any properties as Mission Camps, Tiny Villages, or Portable Shelter Missions. Any such designations will need to go through various other approval processes. Also, note that substitute versions of Items 3 and 4 have been submitted by the sponsors and those substitutes are expected to be considered at this committee meeting and by Common Council on Tuesday. The substitutes tweak some provisions, but the essence of both items remains the same.
 
Agenda Item 4
Creating Sec. 28.070, Tiny House Village (THV) District, Amending Sec. 28.061, Table 28D-2, to include the THV District and specific uses within that District, Amending Sec. 28.211, Definitions, to create a definition of Tiny House Village and Tiny House, and Amending Sec. 28.151, Supplemental Regulations, to provide regulations for Tiny House Villages.
 
Agenda Item 5
Amending Section 28.151, Supplemental Regulations, Portable Shelter Mission, to allow a governmental entity to establish a portable shelter mission and to update references to the Wisconsin Administrative Code and Amending Chapter 28, Tables 28C-1, 28D-2, 28E-2, 28F-1, and 28G-1 to allow Portable Shelter Mission as a permitted accessory use in all zoning districts.
 
Agenda Item 6
Establishing Purpose Built Fulltime Men's Shelter Search Criteria
Body
WHEREAS, the City of Madison has established the following criteria for evaluating options in its search for a site for a shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness:
  • The site should be within a few blocks of seven-days-a-week bus service, with a preference for close proximity to BRT routes;
  • The site should be zoned for commercial or mixed use, and not adjacent to single-family homes;
  • The site should be greater than .5 mile from any schools or daycares;
  • The site should not be located in a Census tract identified as a location of concentrated poverty;
  • The site should include either an existing building or a lot large enough for new construction;
  • The site should include space for future expansion;
  • The site location should be within a walking distance of within 3.5 miles from the Beacon on East Washington; and
  • The site should be an active real estate listing that is vacant or soon-to-be-vacant.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Madison Common Council request City staff to provide a list of eligible sites and estimated cost based on this criteria and present it to the Common Council Executive Committee by June 15th and then provide regular monthly updates on the search for a shelter.
 
Note: The Common Council Executive Committee voted 4-3 to place this item on file. I voted with the majority because city staff and other stakeholders have already been working hard for many months to identify appropriate sites for the permanent men's shelter. While most of the suggested criteria are being followed by staff, they need flexibility to consider sites that may not meet all of the them. In addition, some of the criteria could be considered problematic in some situations, so I believe it is best for Common Council to let staff due their work in collaboration with alders on prospective sites. Note too that at an earlier meeting, the Homeless Issues Committee voted to refer this item to a future meeting until the three sites under consideration were vetted. It is debatable as what "vetted" means in this circumstance.

Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution establishes a state of emergency at Reindahl Park to authorize preparing a temporary campground at Dairy Drive, allowing City staff to start work on the site so it can be licensed and zoned for occupancy by the fall and authorizing the Finance Director, or designee, and department/division heads to make emergency purchases of goods and services and for the Finance Director/designee to sign contracts, subject to budget authority.

INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS FOR REFERRAL WITHOUT DEBATE
 
ORDINANCES
 
Agenda Item 110
Repealing and recreating Section 28.185 to remove consideration of proposed future use for demolition applications and create limited administrative approval for some demolition categories.
Sponsors: Patrick W. Heck, Lindsay Lemmer and Satya V. Rhodes-Conway
Legislative History
8/23/21 Attorney's Office    Referred for Introduction Plan Commission
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance repeals and recreates the existing demolition ordinance, maintaining most of the same approval process but with two notable differences:
 
First, the new ordinance retains the requirement that the Plan Commission approve the demolition, but removes consideration of the proposed future use. This change is because using a demolition ordinance to deny an otherwise permitted use is likely illegal and using the demolition ordinance to review an otherwise conditional use is redundant. Zoning is a legislative power. Like other cities in Wisconsin, Madison regulates land use in districts through a mix of permitted and conditional uses. Madison's Zoning Code defines a Permitted Use as one "which may be lawfully established in a particular district or districts, provided it conforms with all requirements and regulations of the district in which such use is located." Regarding permitted uses, the Wisconsin Supreme Court has recognized that "permitted uses...allow a landowner to use his or her land...as of right... and that rights of ownership and use of property have long been recognized by this state and constitutionally protected." The Office of the City Attorney recommends the ordinance be changed to remove the consideration of proposed future permitted uses from the demolition ordinance in order to avoid future legal challenges.
The same constitutional analysis does not apply to the consideration of proposed future conditional uses because conditional uses are not "by right" uses. However, conditional uses are already separately reviewed by the Plan Commission pursuant to MGO § 28.183. Accordingly, providing for separate review of conditional uses under the demolition ordinance is redundant.
 
Second, the new ordinance creates an avenue for the City to allow administrative approval of demolitions under certain circumstances. All demolition permits will continue to be reviewed by the Landmarks Commission for as a required threshold, regardless if they go to the Planning Commission or administrative review. The new ordinance creates Subsection (8), which creates an avenue for the City to allow administrative approval of demolition under certain circumstances. Proposed Sub. (1)-(3) are demolitions that already are essentially allowed administrative approval under the current ordinance. Sub. (4) provides for administrative approval for demolitions where the resulting project will include city-funded affordable housing. Most significantly, this section creates a provision where more administrative approvals could be added as deemed appropriate by policy makers.
 
Agenda Item 112
Creating Section 28.022-00515 of the Madison General Ordinances to rezone properties located at 341 State Street, 317-321 West Gorham Street and 322 West Johnson Street, 4th Aldermanic District, from UMX (Urban Mixed Use) and DC (Downtown Core) Districts to PD(GDP) Planned Development (General Development Plan) and creating Section 28.022-00516 to approve a Specific Implementation Plan.
