Alder Rummel’s Updates
Updated Items of Interest for Week of May 22, 2017
The Council is holding a one item special council meeting on Wednesday 5/24 at 4:20 to approve a picnic beer license for the Run Madtown event Memorial Day weekend. The applicant applied timely but the Clerk's office didn't get the application on the April ALRC agenda. The sign ordinance I have been working on for some time to allow portable sandwich sign boards is at Urban Design Commission on Wednesday at 4:30. The ALRC will hold its annual separated license renewal hearing meeting on Thursday. Every alcohol license expires in June and the vast majority are approved at a Council meeting in June. The special meeting provides an opportunity to review problematic licenses. Several District 6 licenses have been separated by the City Attorney's office.

4:30p room 351 CCB
2. 46508 CHARTER Creating Section 31.046(2)(c) of the Madison General Ordinances to create a new permit system to allow portable, sandwich-board style signs in the public right-of-way.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This Charter Ordinance would create a new permit system for portable, sandwich-board style signs in the public right-of-way. This ordinance creates detailed criteria for the size, design, and placement of such signs. The maximum gross area of 30 inches wide and 48 inches high, with two sign faces (one on each side) of not more than 2 x 3 feet. All elements of the sign, including the supporting frame/structure shall fit within the maximum gross area of 30 x 48 inches. Each sign would require a detailed application process where the zoning administrator would inspect the proposed location and approve each sign. Each sign would require an $100 annual permit. The ordinance relies on the street vending definition of the State Street Mall/Capitol Concourse Vending Area to create location requirement for signs within this geographic area. The location for portable signs on the sidewalk in that area shall be determined by the Zoning Administrator, using the placement requirements for sidewalk cafes in Sec. 9.13(6)(j), MGO, as a starting point with the precise location for each sign determined on a case-by-case basis by the Zoning Administrator. Signs outside this area will also be approved on a case-by-case basis with placement criteria such as maintaining an unobstructed 6-foot pedestrian walkway, keeping clear of other obstructions and permanent improvements. Signs can only be placed on the sidewalk or terrace and cannot be placed within a median, crosswalk, curb, curbcut, nor any part of the traveled portion of the roadway, and a traffic vision clearance triangle must be maintained at intersections, driveways and other locations (see diagram(s).) Signs can only be displayed while the business is open and cannot be displayed on the Mall/Concourse during times when the mall crew is removing snow (defined as a "Street Vending Snow Day." The ordinance requires features for the sign to be detectable by persons with vision-impairment and a number of other structural and aesthetic requirements.
3. 46509 Amending Section 31.046(2) of the Madison General Ordinances to allow portable signs on public sidewalks and modify the allowable size of portable signs.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance amendment is a companion to Legistar File # 46508, a Charter Ordinance to allow portable signs (sandwich boards) on public sidewalks. This ordinance makes the size requirements for portable signs on private property the same as those for the new portable signs on public property in the pending Charter ordinance. Under this ordinance, private property portable signs would have a maximum gross area of 30 inches wide and 48 inches high, to incorporate the maximum sign face of 2 x 3 feet. All elements of the sign including the supporting frame/structure shall fit within the maximum gross area of 30 x 48 inches. This ordinance also makes some housekeeping changes to the existing section for private property portable signs.Legistar File # 46508 (the Charter Ordinance) and this ordinance should be considered and acted upon together.
