Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of December 5, 2016

December 4, 2016 11:27 PM

Highlights this week. The City County Homeless Issues Committee will review the Substitute ordinance to limit persons entering or staying in highways on Monday. The Substitute prohibits people soliciting employment or contributions on the medians of arterial roads. The Committee will also get an update on the Day Resource Center.


On Tuesday the Council will get a special presentation on Madison in Motion at 5:30. Madison in Motion is designed to help guide future transportation decisions in Madison, in order to help make Madison a more walkable, bikeable and transit-oriented city. Madison in Motion intends to help address the City's numerous growth challenges, and set the stage for future transportation system investments for the next several decades.


The regular Council meeting starts at 6:30p. The New Mr Roberts is seeking a Class B combo (item 11) and an Entertainment license (item 34). The conditions that were on the preceding license will continue. The conditions are: 1. After 9 p.m., the back door will be used as an emergency exit only. 2. No trash will be dumped or collected between 9p and 7a. 3. Live music will end by 12:30am. 4. While there is live music, the front door will be kept closed. 5. On nights when there is live music, a staff member will manage the parking lot from 11p until it has cleared. 


The proposed Olbrich Biergarten is on the Council agenda (item 14) but will be referred to the January meeting. A neighborhood input session will be held on Thursday 12/8 at 6:30p in the basement of Lake Edge Lutheran Church 4032 Monona Dr. The Parks Commission will review the proposal at their Dec 14 meeting at 6:30p at Warner Park and the ALRC will hold a public hearing on Dec 21. 


Also on Tuesday the Council will adopt an ordinance to allow storage lockers in certain zoning districts for use by homeless individuals that would be managed by a nonprofit or religious institution (item 21). The sponsors worked with downtown homeless advocates including Friends of the State St Family to create the ordinance.


There is a resolution (item 26) authorizing the city and the WIS DOT to exchange property and to approve rear access for the development at 151 E Wilson.  The city would receive an easement from Lance McGrath that would allow the city to build a pedestrian bridge across John Nolen to Law Park in exchange for getting DOT permission to allow use of railroad right of way to enter the parcel from the back. And the city would swap land with DOT at Central Park by the tracks along the skatepark for the land behind 151 E Wilson.  Huge thanks to City Engineering staff for this creative solution that will create an incredible amenity for all city residents.


The city is authorizing a grant agreement with Starting Block at the Spark project on the 800 block south E Washington (item 51). The grant was in the adopted 2017 Capital Budget but this resolution spells out the details.


The Madison Library Board approved it in August, but the Council is accepting the report and recommendations on "Communities Inspiring Libraries: A Strategic Plan for East Side Growth" (item 84). This is a very readable and excellent report prepared by Catherine Duarte.


Under NEW BUSINESS FOR INTRODUCTION -two new Class B Combo licenses - item 108 : The Hail Mary Sports Bar at 401 E Washington (formerly Bellini's) and item 112: Frank Productions Concerts at 1 S Livingston (Cosmos)?


On Wednesday December 7,  I will be having a neighborhood meeting on the two 800 block south E Washington projects- the Cosmos with the Frank Productions music venue and the Spark, the American Family office building with Starting Block. The meeting is at 7p at WilMar Neighborhood Center. District 2 residents have been notified.
