Areas affected:
  • At the corner of E. Mifflin Street and N. Franklin Street, MG&E will occupy the intersection for approximately one week.

  • This two-way conversion will remove all parking on the first block of N. Franklin Street.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email mhaack@cdsmith.com or call 920-517-3613.

Dark Horse Art Bar Informational Meeting on Oct. 3

At 2:30pm on Sunday, Oct. 3, Dark Horse Art Bar will host an informational meeting for neighbors to learn about their new business and their applications for a Class B Beer & Liquor application and an 18+ Center for Visual & Performing Arts License application. The location for the new business and Sunday's informational meeting is the former Star Bar at 756 E. Washington on the ground floor of the Constellation.

Dark Horse Art Bar is owned by Patrick DePula, who also owns Salvatore's Tomato Pies next door. The liquor license application indicates hours of operation from 4pm to 2am Tuesday through Sunday although Mr. DePula indicates that Dark Horse Art Bar will generally close at 10pm on Sundays, midnight Tuesdays through Thursdays, and 2am on Friday and Saturday nights. He indicates that wants the flexibility to stay open later than those expected hours during the week, particularly when there are events at Breese Stevens or The Sylvee.

The 18+ Center for Visual & Performing Arts License application indicates that the entertainment offered will be performance art, spoken word, and live independent music. They estimate 60% of their revenue from alcohol sales, 15% from food, and 25% from sales of art.

Both of the requested licenses were recommended for approval at the Sept. 29 Alcohol License Review Committee meeting. The last step in the approval process will be at the Oct. 5 Common Council meeting. If residents have any input, questions or concerns, please attend the informational meeting or contact me asap (district2@cityofmadison.com).

Redistricting Concept 7a

Update on Redistricting Process for Alder Districts

At their last meeting, the Ad Hoc Redistricting Committee expressed a strong preference for a new map called Concept 7a. In all concepts that have been explored, the boundaries of each and every alder district would change due to population growth that has varied since the previous census and redistricting. In addition, the impending absorption of the Town of Madison into the City in October of 2022 has influenced districts' proposed boundary changes. Each alder district is expected to have a resident population of approximately 13,700 with some small variations allowed.

Many alders, including me, and members of the public have advocated for keeping together various communities of interest, neighborhoods, neighborhood associations, etc., or to make them intact. Doing so, while equalizing population is a tough task and it is impossible to create or preserve all communities of interest, but the Ad Hoc Committee has been working hard to accommodate as many as possible. That said, there are many alternate concepts that have been evaluated and there could be more to come as the committee wraps up it works and the final redistricting map is agreed upon by Common Council, likely at our Nov. 2 meeting,

As you can see from the image above, there are substantial changes proposed for the center of Madison where population growth has been particularly high. In Concept 7a, the Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood would remain intact, but would move to District 6 across E. Washington. The Sherman Terrace area and the many apartments along Fordem Ave. would move to District 12. UW-Madison dorms would all be in District 8, but student-dominated areas in the Langdon Street area and more of the lower end of the State Street area would move to District 2. Note that the City Attorney has advised alders that at some point in 2021 (likely between Nov. 2 and Dec. 31, but TBD), alders will represent constituents in their new district boundaries even if they no longer live in their current district. As a result, if Tenney-Lapham moves to District 6 and if Sherman Terrace and Fordem Avenue areas move to District 12, I would no longer represent those neighborhoods as of the TBD effective date. For the April 2023 city elections, all incumbent alders and candidates will need to live in the district in which they may be elected.

As part of the redistricting process, wards and polling places will also be adjusted to align with the redrawn boundaries. The timeline for this entire process is compressed due to COVID 19, but if you'd like to follow the process and give input, the Ad Hoc Redistricting Committee will meet Oct. 4 to discuss any final changes to the district maps and again on Oct. 7 to make their final recommendation. See "City Meetings of Interest" below for agendas and input options.

St. John's Lutheran Church

Oct. 12 James Madison District Steering Committee Meeting on St. John's Redevelopment

The James Madison District Steering Committee that is evaluating the proposal to redevelop the St. John's Lutheran Church property at 322 E. Washington Ave. is scheduled to meet again on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 6pm. The meeting's Zoom link for this virtual meeting is not yet available, but I'll be sure to publicize it in next weekend's Alder Update.

St. John's is working with Urban Land Interests and proposes to demolish their current building; 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. Earlier this month, the development team reported that they do not plan to break ground until 2023, but that they will be seeking city approvals this fall and winter. If you'd like to participate in future steering committee meetings or simply join their email list, please email mariahrenz@gmail.com or bob.klebba@gmail.com.

Save the Date: Oct. 20 Neighborhood Meeting on Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra Proposal

On Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 6:30pm, there will be a second virtual neighborhood meeting to discuss the proposal to redevelop the current Avenue Club parcels in the 1100 block of E. Washington Avenue. The Zoom link is not yet available, but I'll be sure to publicize it before the Oct. 20 meeting.

Proposed Avenue Club Demolition at Landmarks Commission

Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra (WYSO) proposes to demolish the Avenue Club and construct a building that would house rehearsal spaces and offices with surface parking provided. The proposed demolition of the Avenue Club building will be considered by the Landmarks Commission at their Monday, Oct. 4 meeting (see that meeting's agenda in "City Meetings of Interest" below), although the Commission typically only weighs in on any historical value they can attribute to buildings proposed for demolitions rather than the demolition application itself. Plan Commission will later fully consider the demolition application.

Salvation Army Awarded WHEDA Innovation Housing Tax Credit

This week the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) announced 9% federal housing tax awards for its 2021 Innovation Housing Tax Credit program. Included was the Shield, a 44-unit supportive housing development planned for the corner of E. Mifflin and N. Blount Streets, that was awarded a tax credit of $800,000. Already approved by the City, The Shield will be adjacent to the Salvation Army's planned redevelopment of their shelter for women and families without homes and will consist of 44 studio and 1-bedroom units. Most of the units are designed for residents with special needs including 11 units for individuals experiencing homelessness and 22 units for survivors of domestic violence and others with special needs.

According to WHEDA, in exchange for receiving the tax credits, developers agree to reserve all or a portion of their housing units for low- and moderate-income households for at least 30 years. Any remaining units are rented at market rates. The developers then sell the tax credits to private investors to obtain funding. Once the housing project is available to tenants, investors can claim the tax credit as a dollar-for-dollar reduction of federal or Wisconsin income taxes owed over a 10-year period.

 

MYArts

MYArts Community Tours Oct. 9 and 10

From Madison Youth Arts Center

Under ordinary circumstances when you open a brand new building that has tremendous community support, what do you do? Throw a big party! Or maybe several. You throw a party for neighbors, a party for donors, a party that invites as many people as possible into your space. You celebrate, you say thank you to everybody who contributed to making a dream come true, and you hope that new people will visit and catch the vision, too, so that you can build a community together.

We want to say thank you, and we're working to build community, but these aren't ordinary times. So until we can truly gather safely and throw our doors wide open we're putting off the big party. We're eager to share the building with you anyway. Would you like to come for a tour?

On Oct. 9 and 10, MYArts will offer free tours open to anybody in our community. You'll get a chance to see the completed building, learn about what's still to come, and maybe catch a glimpse of one of our user groups. Want to join us? Sign up for a tour here.

Tours are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required to keep groups small (10 people per group) as a COVID safety measure. Tours will be held at MYArts--1055 E. Mifflin St., Madison WI. All participants over age 2 must wear masks.

REPORT OF PLAN COMMISSION
 
Agenda Item 14
SECOND SUBSTITUTE - 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
Recent Legislative History
9/20/21 PLAN COMMISSION    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - PUBLIC HEARING
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.
 
This substitute incorporates staff feedback clarifying ordinance language, eliminating internal redundancies and editing for format and typos. In addition, it includes in this historic value assessment archeology in recognition that the historic value of the property might be a burial site, not a structure. Most of Madison's archeological properties have tribal associations and due to forced relocation, tribes largely do not have the ability to be involved with commenting on projects that impact where their family is buried. The preservation review is one way to engage with tribal partners and give them a voice in this process for sacred sites that we forcefully took away from them.
 
The second substitute clarifies that the reuse and recycling plan is something that is still required before a raze permit is granted, but can be done after Plan Commission approval.
 
Agenda Item 15
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 (Downton Core) Districts to PD(GDP) Planned Development (General Development Plan) and creating Section 28.022-00516 to approve a Specific Implementation Plan.

Note: I support this commonsense approach to allowing virtual meetings and giving the Mayor and President of Common Council the ability to determine each Common Council meeting format.

Landlord and Tenant Issues Committee
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: Under current ordinances, if a landlord does not correct a rent impairing violation by the due date in the order of the Building Inspection Division, the tenant is entitled to seek abatement for a portion of their rent. The period of time of rent abatement starts is the date the orders were issued by the Building Inspection Division. This proposal allows for an earlier start date if it can be verified by the hearing examiner that the violation existed on an earlier date, as shown by the greater weight of credible evidence. For example, an earlier date for damage by fire may be able to be verified by a public record of the date of the fire.

RESOLUTIONS
 
Agenda Item 75
To approve the schedule of Special Charges for the State Street Mall/Capitol Concourse for 2020/21 Maintenance Charges.
Legislative History
9/29/21 Parks Division    Referred for Introduction
Downtown Coordinating Committee (10/21/21), Finance Committee (10/25/21)
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution adopts the State Street Mall Capitol Concourse 2020/21 schedule of special charges for maintenance service. These charges are assessed to support the additional level of services provided to this high-traffic area, including operation of water fountains, maintenance of flower planters, and frequent trash and snow removal. This charge does not cover any expenses related to emergency public services, such as those services provided during the protests in the summer of 2020. The City and property owners share the cost of the State Street Mall/Capitol Concourse Maintenance service 50/50.

Total expenditures for the 2020/21 service period were $1,381,026. The City portion for these services is $690,513, and the remaining $690,513 is chargeable to the property owners. While this is an increase of 24% over the prior year, 2019/20 was calculated for a 9-month billing period. The average monthly cost of $57,543 for 2020/21 is comparable to the 2019/20 average monthly cost of $58,141. Payments are budgeted in the 2021 Parks Division Adopted Operating Budget.
