Saturday, Sept. 11: Richard Linster Memorial Bike Ride

Join your neighbors for a group bike ride on Sept. 11! Bring your bike, scooter, skates, skateboard, sneakers, and join the mass slow roll from Reynolds Park to Tenney Park (island). 

Meet at 1:00pm at Reynolds Park, depart at 1:30 pm, and ride together to our shared destination of Tenney Park. At the end of the ride will be light refreshments, and an opportunity to renew/join membership in the Tenney Lapham Neighborhood Association.

The Richard Linster Memorial Group Neighborhood Ride honors Richard's legacy of bike riding and service. He was a tireless champion of membership for the neighborhood association. Bike racks have been installed at Tenney Park in his memory, and this is a chance to check them out. And if that wasn't enough, there will be all the neighborhood swag you could hope for! You can find more details about the event here. There is also a Sidney Street gathering hosted by Richard's family that follows this event, starting at 4pm.

MYArts on E. Mifflin to Install First of Three Wall Murals

The new Madison Youth Arts Center (MYArts) at 1055 E. Mifflin will soon be installing the first of three planned murals on their exterior wall along N. Ingersoll Street. Pictured below are the three blank inset spaces where the murals will be installed and the three designs. The murals will be weather-proof and have anti-graffiti coatings. The design furthest to the left will be installed in October.

MYArts Site 2
MYArts Mural site

The murals are a collaboration between the Dane Arts Mural Arts (DAMA) Community Project, their artists, and more than 70 students who provided input and drawings that have inspired the mural's design/patterns with many of those incorporated into the mural. More than 100 students also provided feedback on the mural. Once the first mural is installed, I encourage you to look closely at the intricate student designs that are embedded in this complex artwork.

Improved Dane CORE Rental Assistance To Relaunch on Sept. 15

From the City's Community Development Division:
Since launching the Dane CORE Emergency Rental Assistance program with the County in February 2021, the city's community partners have processed over 14,000 applications and assisted households in paying over $13 million dollars in back-owed rent. Due to ongoing housing needs, we are expanding and relaunching this program next week as Dane CORE 2.0. We remain committed to taking every step possible to keep every household in Dane County safely and stably housed, and the 2nd version of this program will allow us to make sure more households can access the help they desperately need.  What this means for the program is that:

  • More funding will be available than before – and for more than just back-owed rent. The program will be expanded to fund utility assistance, internet assistance, and prioritizing forward rent and security deposit assistance to our most vulnerable community members.
  • To upgrade our program, we need to expand capacity and streamline the application process. The Dane CORE application will be temporarily taken offline at 3:00 p.m., Friday, September 10.
  • We will be processing as many applications as possible during downtime to ensure money continues to go out to the community. Providers are training new staff and learning a new system, please be patient with us. Payments will resume before the end of the month.
  • If you have a current application in for emergency rental assistance, there will be no need to submit a new application or submit new documents. All data will be transferred over, and communication will go to your email directly on how to access your updated application when the new portal opens.
  • The new rental assistance application portal is scheduled to open Wednesday, September 15th. With the number of applications received through the program, we need this time to ensure a seamless transition of data that will allow us to better serve the community. The new application links and phone number for assistance will go live together on Wednesday.

We're fortunate to have dedicated community partners working on this project. When the new application opens, you can contact them directly for assistance on your application or to answer any questions that you might have. In the City of Madison, the Community Action Coalition of South Central Wisconsin (CAC), Meadowood Health Partnership, FOSTER of Dane County and African Center for Community Development will be working with residents to navigate this process. Outside the City, Urban Triage will continue their work on this program in providing resources to residents in navigating applications from start to finish.  Our priority is to ensure community members stay safely housed as we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We're working hard to increase access to this program as much as we possibly can.

Tenants need to understand their rights. Eviction is a formal legal process that a landlord must follow in order to force someone from their property. In Wisconsin, however, only the courts can order someone be removed from their home. Information explaining eviction rights for tenants in Dane County can be found in English here and in Spanish here.

Town of Madison

Sept. 15 First Public Information Meeting for Town of Madison Attachment

The City of Madison would like to invite anyone impacted by the upcoming Town of Madison Attachment process to a virtual public information meeting, 6 p.m., Sept. 15, 2021.

Although much of the Town of Madison is spread throughout various parts of the city's southside, much of the area between Sherman Ave. and Fordem Ave. north of Sherman Terrace Condos is also in the Town and will be attached to the city on Oct. 31, 2022 (see the blue-green area in map above).

At the Sept. 15 meeting the City will share the latest about the attachment process, resources for incoming residents and property owners to stay connected, explain how the City is reaching non-English speaking populations through community navigators. There will also be City staff available to answer questions about the process. This is the first of multiple public information meetings leading up to official attachment on Oct. 31, 2022. Another public information meeting will be held in-person this fall focusing on public safety and emergency services. Details will be announced later. Learn more on the City's Attachment website.

Register for the Sept. 15, 2021 Public Information Meeting. Registration prior is required.

St. John's Proposal

Update: St John's Church Redevelopment Proposal Steering Committee

On Sept. 8, the James Madison Park District steering committee that is evaluating the proposal for the redevelopment of St. John's Lutheran Church at 322 E. Washington held their first meeting. St. John's is working with Urban Land Interests and plans to demolish their current building and construct worship space and social services on the first floor of a new building with as many as 9 stories of mostly affordable apartments above and underground parking below.

The development team reported that they will be slowing down the process and, if approvals from the city are obtained, would not break ground until 2023. The steering committee, however, will meet again in late September or early October to go over what are expected to be early renderings of the proposed building's design. The development team anticipates appearing an Urban Design Commission meeting later this fall for an informational meeting, yet not starting the formal approval process until in early 2022. They will be seeking funding/tax credits from the City and WHEDA for the approximately 85% of the estimated 125 apartments that will be reserved for tenants who make 30% to 60% of County Median Income.

If you'd like to participate in future steering committee meetings or simply join their email list, please email or

2022 City Budget - Capital Budget Hearings This Week

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, the Finance Committee will see presentations by each agency detailing their respective components of the Executive Capital Budget, as proposed by the Mayor. Due to the large number of agencies, the presentations will be split between the two Finance Committee meetings. The presentation schedule, slides, and other materials are here. See "Details" below in "City Meetings of Interest" if you'd like to watch or participate, although meeting will be recorded on City Channel and available for viewing at anytime in the future.

On Sept. 27, Finance Committee members will offer and consider amendments to the Executive Capital Budget, but Common Council will not consider the Capital Budget and amendments until November. In October, the Finance Committee will repeat the process for the Mayor's proposed Operating Budget, which should be released on Oct. 5. See the figure below which shows the differences between items funded in the Capital and Operating Budgets.

City Budgets

The adoption of the amended Capital and Operating Budgets will occur at Common Council meetings of Nov. 9, 10, and possibly 11. Public Comment will be taken on the budgets at Finance Committee meetings and at the Nov. 9 meeting. Visit the Finance Department's Budget page where you can learn about every departments' proposed spending plans, learn about the revenue side of the budget, and keep track as the process unfolds. 

Updates on District 2 New Liquor License Applications

AfterShock Classic Arcade
As mentioned in last week's Alder Update, a new Class B Beer & Liquor license application has been submitted by Brad Van Kauwebergh for a new business that he and Chris Welch will own and will replace Maria's Bar in the front of 1444 E. Washington across the hall from the Parched Eagle. There will be a public information meeting concerning the liquor license application onsite on Sunday, Sept, 12 at noon if neighbors have questions or input. At their Sept. 9 meeting, TLNA Council voted to support the application.
Most residents are already aware of this new restaurant, but 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. The restaurant will be co-owned by Tanya and Jack Yip. The public information meeting for this application is scheduled for Sept. 16 at 5:00pm at the restaurant location. At their Sept. 9 meeting, TLNA Council voted to support the application.
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 application has also been submitted. The public information meeting for this application has not yet been scheduled.

Finance Committee: Details
4:30pm, Monday, Sept. 13, 2021


Agenda Item 1
Submitting the appointment of Norman D. Davis for confirmation of a five-year term as the Civil Rights Director.
Agenda Item 2
Submitting the appointment of Maribeth L. Witzel-Behl for confirmation of a five-year term as the City Clerk.
Agenda Item 9

Agenda Item 12
City of Madison Sponsorship of the Annual Compost Bin and Rain Barrel Community Event.
Agenda Item 17
Accepting additional Emergency Rental Assistance Program funds from the U.S. Treasury Department, awarded under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, to sustain efforts to prevent evictions and promote housing stability for eligible households in Dane County affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; amending the Community Development Division's 2021 Operating Budget to reflect receipt and use of these funds; and authorizing an amendment to the contract between the City of Madison and Benevate, Inc., which governs the use of Benevate's Neighborly Software system in administering Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program funds provided to the City.
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the City to accept $6.14 million of additional Emergency Rental Assistance Program funds from the U.S. Treasury Department to help prevent evictions and promote housing stability among eligible households in Dane County. Acceptance of this funding brings the total emergency rental assistance funding awarded to the City of Madison to $39.1 million. This resolution also allows execution of an amendment to the City's current Neighborly Software contract with Benevate, Inc. to increase the City's system usage fee by up to $37,000. The 2021 adopted operating budget will be amended to appropriate the $6,142,190 of intergovernmental revenue for grants and purchased services in the Community Development Division-Affordable Housing.
Agenda Item 19
ALTERNATE: A resolution to provide a plan for wage increase parity to general municipal employees.
Note: See the resolution text here. This alternate to the resolution seeks to give scheduled pay raises to approximately 1,400 full-time General Municipal Employees who are 6% behind protective service employees. Protective Services (MPD and MFD) are still represented by recognized unions due to a carve out in 2011's Act 10. The alternate resolution also asks for guarantees that General Municipal Employees will receive identical raises that protective service employees may receive in the future.
Agenda Item 20
SUBSTITUTE Amending the 2021 Adopted Operating Budget to transfer funds within agency budgets based on projected spending through the 2nd Quarter of 2021.; authorizing a distribution from the residual incremental tax revenues of Tax Increment District 25; transferring federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to the General Fund and Monona Terrace; and addressing a deficit in the Room Tax Fund
Partial Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution amends the 2021 Adopted Operating Budget in order to make technical adjustments within various agency budgets. In certain instances, the Adopted Operating Budget includes funding for expenditures centrally with the anticipation of transferring those funds to agency budgets throughout the year when actual spending patterns are known. This is the case for both sick leave escrow and carry forward encumbrances. The amounts proposed in the midyear appropriation adjustment are based on actual expenditures through the first half of 2021. All of the proposed adjustments through this resolution are net neutral within the General Fund and have no impact on the Expenditure Restraint Program.
Agenda Item 22
2022 Executive Capital Budget
Note: Each agency will present their 2022 Capital Budget, as proposed by the Mayor. The presentation schedule, slides, and other materials are here. Some agencies will present at the Sept. 14 Finance Committee meeting.
