D6 Items of Interest Week of August 22, 2016

August 21, 2016 7:25 PM

August is a slow month for city meetings but I have lots to report! 

Mother Fools Coffee House was bashed up last night by a car crash, the building sustained significant damage. They are seeking $10K to get through the immediate period. Please check out the campaign and help if you can.

Highlights this week include a request from the Elks Club for a land division at Landmarks on Monday. Neighborhood association traffic committees and residents concerned about traffic issues should check out the proposed revised procedure manual for traffic calming at Ped Bike Motor Vehicles Commission on Tuesday. The TIF Review Board (aka Joint Review Board) composed of all local taxing jurisdictions will review the city of Madison's proposed amendment to TID 25 on Wednesday. The latest chapter to the Housing Strategy Committee report will be discussed on Thursday.

Several food and alcohol license applications have been submitted for the Sept 21st  ALRC meeting, 5:30 room 201 CCB
1. La Kitchenette 805 Williamson Class B Beer and Liquor (formerly Bon Appetit)
2. Common Pasta LLC 940 Williamson (seeking more info)
3. Fuegos Steak and Tapas 904 Williamson Class B Beer and Liquor. A n'hood meeting is tentatively scheduled for Sept 7 at 7p place TBD. They are also requesting a parking reduction at Plan Commission Sept 19th.
4. Alma Latina Restaurant 117 S Butler Class B Combo (formerly theBayou) A n'hood meeting will be scheduled, stay tuned.


Stateline Distillery is seeking a conditional use permit to open a tasting room at 1413 Northern Ct. State law exempts distilleries from local licensing requirements but several years ago the zoning text was amended to require distilleries (permitted only in Trad Employment zoning districts) to get a conditional use permit from the Plan Commission.  A n'hood meeting will be scheduled, stay tuned.

Tues 8/30 Alder Zellers/District 2 neighborhood meeting to review the development proposal by the Salvation Army for their facility at 630 E Washington 7p, room D240 Downtown MATC 211 S Carroll.  The building they are currently using at that site would be demolished, and a six-story building would be constructed.  The intent is to continue the current services which are being provided at this site including an overnight shelter for single women and families, medical and dental services, and offices.  They will also be applying for WHEDA tax credits to help construct 66 units of affordable & market rate housing.  Approximately 150 parking spaces are proposed.

Meetings of interest this week:

Monday Aug 22,  2016
Landmarks Commission
4:45p room LL-110 MMB

1. 43525 711-719 Jenifer Street - Third Lake Ridge Historic District - Land Division of property. 6th Ald. Dist. Contact: Paul Spetz, Isthmus Surveying 

From the staff report: The Elks intend to divide their existing lot to make two lots. One lot would contain all of the improvements related to the Elk's Lodge and the other lot would contain the historic residence. The lot being created for the historic residence is approximately 4000 square feet and has narrow frontage at the street with a depth that extends toward Lake Monona. This configuration is similar to other adjacent residential lots and maintains the general lot size pattern of the historic district. 

Note there are two letters from nearby neighbors opposed to the proposed lot division which eliminates 711 Jenifer's access to the lake.

3. 44072 841 & 843 Williamson Street - Alteration to a designated Landmark - Ridgeside Co-op, Rebuild and extend the front porch and back porch decks. 6th Ald. Dist. Contact: Karen Brown; Ridgeside Co-op

E.3. 44106 Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) Manual- The NTMP Objectives, Policies and Procedures. 
From the legislative analysis: "The document has been modified to relax selection criteria and steps for disadvantage areas/neighborhoods. The changes were made in consultation with the City racial equity team....These changes are in addition to work being done with City Information Services to consider new ways to encourage participation, including mechanisms to survey people electronically for example via cell phone. This is to encourage  greater participation in the process and should benefit all neighborhoods. "

This is the manual the city uses to review traffic calming.
