  • Halloween on State StreetThe City will once again be working to make State Street and downtown Madison a safe and enjoyable space for celebrating Halloween. Events that will be occurring, include:

In the past few years, the City has moved away from a formal/sanctioned event for Halloween, also known as Freakfest, and again there will be no formal event this year. There is also no UW football game or homecoming planned for Halloween weekend this year. To facilitate physical safety, a glass ban has been instituted on State Street for Halloween weekend, and Streateries will be closed at 6:00pm.

1-Week Closure of N. Hancock St. and E. Washington Ave Intersection

Starting on Monday, Oct. 31 and continuing through Friday, Nov. 4, the intersection of N. Hancock Street and E. Washington Avenue will be closed to vehicular and bike traffic. The contractor constructing The Continental apartment building will be disassembling their tower crane on those days. A temporary two-way traffic pattern on N. Hancock Street to the intersection at East Mifflin St. will also be established so that N. Hancock residents and visitors will have access to their destinations.

Street parking on this portion of North Hancock Street will not be permitted during the duration of this process. North Hancock will be properly signed to assist in this transition and access to driveways will be maintained. For additional information, contact Project Manager Brett Jerdee: bjerdee@cdsmith.com.

N. Butler Street Redevelopment Proposal at Plan Commission on Oct. 24

The proposal for 117 through 125 N. Butler Street submitted by developers Reese Fisher and Blake Fisher will be considered by Plan Commission at our Oct. 24 meeting. The developers seek to demolish three existing apartment houses and combine those lots with another lot that is vacant in order to construct a new four-story building with 32 market rate apartments comprised of studios, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units. The developers have applied for a Demolition Permit, a rezoning of the parcels, a Conditional Use Permit, and approval of Certified Survey Map.

The current zoning, Downtown Residential-1, allows a maximum building width of 60 feet, while the proposed width of the new building is 104'10", hence the developers are asking for a rezoning to Downtown Residential-2 which does not limit building width. Some members of the James Madison Park District steering committee that met to give input on the proposal expressed concerns that opening up Butler St to a wider building will promote demolitions of other homes that are appropriately scaled for the neighborhood and offer affordable rents, all to make way for additional redevelopments that may also ask for a rezoning to be able to build wider buildings. Other committee members believed that the creation of more badly needed housing outweighs the concerns about possibly losing more traditional neighborhood housing to redevelopment. Those members also felt that the existing buildings were at the end of their useful lives. Note that the height of any new buildings on this block of Butler or elsewhere downtown still have to follow the Downtown Height Map limits, as this proposal does.

In August the Landmarks Commission voted to approve recommendations to Plan Commission concerning the proposed demolitions of the three multi flats at 117, 123, and 125 N. Butler Street to make way for the proposed redevelopment. Landmarks commissioners recommended that the buildings at 117 and 123 N. Butler Street have historic value related to the vernacular context of Madison's built environment, but the buildings themselves are not historically, architecturally, or culturally significant. They also recommended that the building at 125 N. Butler Street has no known historic value. The Landmarks Commission is advisory to the Plan Commission for demolition proposals, so Plan Commission expected to make the official determination concerning the demolition applications at our Oct. 24 meeting.

Plan Commission will also consider a Conditional Use Permit for the proposal that is required because the redevelopment proposes a multi-family with more than 8 dwelling units in what is proposed to be in the DR2 zoning district. There will also be an agenda item requesting approval of a Certified Survey Map (CSM) that would combine the four parcels into one.

The James Madison Park District of CNI has issued a letter to the Plan Commission and city staff. That letter, the project plans, the development team's land use application, and other materials can be found here. If you have any questions or input, please contact me at district2@cityofmadison.com.

REPORT OF BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS
 
Agenda Item 11
Amending Section 10.28(1) of the Madison General Ordinances to Limit the Use of Salt and Melting Agents on Sidewalks.
Recent Legislative History
10/12/22 BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance amends the existing snow and ice removal ordinance by limiting the use of salt or other melting agents to that amount necessary to treat the ice so that it can be removed. Under the amendment, excess salt and chemical melting agents may not accumulate on the sidewalk and must be removed following ice or snow melt. Excess use of salt and chemical melting agents not only creates its own hazard or impediment on the sidewalk, particularly for disabled persons, but the excess chemicals will eventually migrate into the City's storm and surface waters, contributing to the salinization of the City's lakes and groundwater, which itself presents a current and future public health concern. The purpose of this ordinance is to give the City the ability to limit the overuse of salt and chemical melting agents, and enforcement will be couple with an educational component designed to instruct the public on how to responsibly use such melting agents.
 
Agenda Item 14
Approving and Adopting an Updated Policy for Assessing Street Improvements. (Citywide)

10/17/22 FINANCE COMMITTEE    Return to Lead with the Recommendation for Approval to the BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS

Note: Materials for this item are located here, including a presentation by city staff comparing current assessment policies with the proposed changes. Also, see Agenda Item #35 below.
 
Agenda Item 19
Authorizing the Mayor and the City Clerk to execute Amendment No. 3 to the existing Purchase of Services contract between the City of Madison and Tetra Tech, Inc. for engineering services for the East Isthmus and Yahara River Watershed Study. (2nd, 4th, 6th, 12th and 15th AD)
Recent Legislative History
10/12/22 BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes an amendment to the existing contract (#8910) for engineering services for the total amount of $41,100.00.  The new contract as amended will total $323,868.00.
Funding for the flood reduction analysis consulting services in the amount of $41,100 is provided in the 2022 Adopted Stormwater Utility Operating Budget. No additional appropriation is required. The project number is 12846-84-200-84000.
 
REPORT OF DOWNTOWN COORDINATING COMMITTEE
 
Agenda Item 27
Approving the 2023 Operating Plan for Madison's Central Business Improvement District. (2nd, 4th, and 8th A.D.)
Recent Legislative History
10/20/22 DOWNTOWN COORDINATING COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
 
REPORT OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES COMMISSION
 
Agenda Item 28
Amending 39.03(2), 39.03(4)(a), (c), (d), (g), (h), (i), (j) and (k) and creating 39.03 (p) to add protections for building code complainants.
Recent Legislative History
10/13/22 EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES COMMISSION    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT WITH THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS - REPORT OF OFFICER
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance adds building code complainants as a protected status in the area of Housing in the Equal Opportunities Ordinance. This would protect tenants who are victims of retaliation from their landlords when they make complaints of building code violations. This provision offers tenants the benefits of a process that is currently used and is staffed by experienced investigators. Violations of the Ordinance can result in awards of monetary and other damages that would directly redress the damage done to the tenant.
The substitute includes recommended changes made by the Equal Opportunities Commission.
 
REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE
 
Agenda Item 30
Removing Student Housing Restrictions from the City of Madison Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Policy
Recent Legislative History
10/17/22 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
Fiscal Note
This resolution removes the prohibition on use of tax increment financing (TIF) for student housing projects unless the project has a significant affordable component. This would expand the possible use of TIF to all student housing, regardless of whether or not it has a significant affordable component. Use of TIF must meet other requirements, including whether the project would occur "but for" the provision of TIF support, the level of increment generated and available for development under the City's TIF policy, and inclusion in a project plan that is approved by the Common Council and Joint Review Board.
The resolution requires no appropriation.
 
Agenda Item 31
Approving the provision of up to $62,000 from the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) grant Isthmus Safety Initiative (ISI) to support the development and execution of a Isthmus Safety Initiative (ISI) program in Madison's Downtown and authorizing the Mayor and the City Clerk to enter into agreements with the selected agency to implement the designated project.

Recent Legislative History
10/20/22 BOARD OF HEALTH FOR MADISON AND DANE COUNTY.   RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
 
Agenda Item 33
Resolution Authorizing the Acceptance of Funds from the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services to support the Madison Forward Fund and authorizing the Director for Public Health to sign a non-competitive contract with the City of Madison for a Madison Forward Fund Program Manager and community outreach costs associated with the program. 
Recent Legislative History
10/20/22 BOARD OF HEALTH FOR MADISON AND DANE COUNTY    Return to Lead with the Recommendation for Common Council to Adopt to the FINANCE COMMITTEE
AGENDA NOTE: Recommended action is adoption (15 VOTES REQUIRED).
 
Agenda Item 35
Amending Sections 10.09(1) and (2) of the Madison General Ordinances to Address Changes to the Sidewalk, Curb and Gutter Special Assessment Procedures.
Recent Legislative History
10/17/22 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This amendment is being done contemporaneously with an amendment to the City's street improvement special assessment policy (File No. 74024). Under the updated street improvement special assessment policy, sidewalks and curbs will be assessable, but subject to a grant program that will pay for those costs. The City's current sidewalk repair program will be altered as well as part of these changes. To accommodate these changes in the City's assessment policy, it is necessary to remove this express assessment language in Sec. 10.09(1) and (2) since the formulas included in the ordinance would limit the City's options moving forward.
Note: See Agenda Item #14 above.
 
Agenda Item 36
A Resolution authorizing the Mayor and the City Clerk to enter into a multiyear, competitively selected service contract with A2Z Design LLC for On-Call Marketing Services to educate the public in regards to the Metro Transit Network Redesign and BRT Project.

ORDINANCES
 
Agenda Item 47
Amending Section 8.27(3) of the Madison General Ordinances to update the Cross-Country Ski Permit Program.
Legislative History
10/17/22 Assessor's Office    Referred for Introduction
Board of Park Commissioners (11/9/22); Common Council (11/22/22)
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:    This ordinance updates the City's existing cross-country ski program and permit system. The ordinance removes the specific references to Elver Park and Odana Hills, and instead places the location of covered facilities under the authority of the Board of Parks Commissioners, who can designate certain parks and golf courses as part of the City's cross country ski program. The fees from the permit are used to support the City's cross-country ski program and maintenance activities at the covered locations. This change will give the Parks Division more flexibility in locating cross-country ski facilities within the City's park and golf course system.
 
Agenda Item 48
Amending Chapters 34 and 40 of the Madison General Ordinances to update fire protection and elevator inspection guidelines and requirements.
Legislative History
10/18/22 Attorney's Office   Referred for Introduction
Building Code, Fire Code, Conveyance Code and Licensing Appeals Board (11/15/22); Common Council (11/22/22)
Fiscal Note
The proposed ordinance amends the Fire Prevention Code (Chapter 34) and the Conveyance Code (Chapter 40) of the Madison General Ordinances, updating and modifying fire protection and elevator inspection guidelines and requirements. Fiscal changes include the creation of a fine of $100 for failing to schedule a final inspection for work permits issued under Chapter 34 and an increase in the fee for conveyance permits from $50 to $75. The Fire Department anticipates an increase in revenue of approximately $75,000 per year from the increase in conveyance permit fees. Other changes are not expected to have a significant fiscal impact.
