4:45 pm Room LL-110, Madison Municipal Building

#1 1221 Williamson Street - Third Lake Ridge Historic District - Willy Street Co-Op remodel and addition revisions. 6th Ald. Dist. Contact: Matthew Aro
The Coop came before the Landmarks Commission on December 10, 2012 to request numerous exterior alterations and a partial second floor addition. At that time, the Landmarks Commission approved a Certificate of Appropriateness for the submitted work. Now the Coop has submitted a revised project and requests that the Landmarks Commission approve a Certificate of Appropriateness for the revised proposal.The scope of the project has been reduced from a two story addition to one story.

#3 Landmarks Ordinance Revisions - Here it is in all its messy iterations 
Clean draft of the changes.
Redlined version
The Landmarks Commission has been working for over a year on revisions to the ordinance. The biggest proposed change is to the definition of the visually related area

Visually related area (VRA) means the area within two hundred (200) feet of the boundary of a lot. Outside of an historic district, no property other than a landmark, landmark site shall be evaluated in the application of the VRA. Within an historic district, properties that were built after the following dates and before the establishment of the historic district ordinance shall not be evaluated in the application of the VRA:
(a) For the Mansion Hill Historic District: 1850-19302
(b) For the Third Lake Ridge Historic District: 1850-1929
(c) For the University Heights Historic District: 1893-1928
(d) For the Marquette Bungalows Historic District: 1924-1930
(e) For the First Settlement Historic District: 1850-1920

Please take a look and share your comments with me and Amy Scanlon preservation planner:

Monday, 9/30/13 Plan Commission
5:30 pm, Room 201, City-County Building

#15 Amending Sections 28.151 and 28.211 of the Madison General Ordinances to allow overnight sleeping in tents or in other temporary portable shelters as an accessory use of a religious institution or a nonprofit organization in specific districts.

This is the ordinance I have been working on for months that would allow temporary shelters as an accessory use. such as tents, cars, or Tiny Houses...

# 16 Amending Chapter 28 Zoning Districts - Site Standards to allow outdoor cooking as permitted accessory use to a location that prepares food and creating a definition in Sec. 28.211 of the Madison General Ordinances for outdoor cooking operation.

Dear everyone- I think this will be and should be changed at Plan to a conditional accessory use in residential districts and downtown and urban districts. Note the definition: "Outdoor Cooking Operation. Outdoor preparation of food, including by grilling or smoking, as an accessory use of a restaurant, grocery store, catering business, or other use that prepares food for consumption by the public." If you want to share your thoughts on this, please email your thoughts to Tim Parks and Katherine Cornwell and they will share with the Plan Commission.

#4 2014 Executive Capital Budget

#14 Consideration of and Override of Mayoral Veto
Mayor's veto memo

This proposal rehabs the historic Longfellow School building and constructs a new apartment building on the lot. The proposal includes a provision to allow Meriter to park hospital/clinic guests at this site as a land use condition.  The Plan Commission approved a condition that if Meriter is sold, parking arrangement would end. One of the Plan Commission alders appealed the decision to the Council and moved to repeal the condition and it passed. Mayor says unprecedented to allow commercial users to park on residential site and vetoes. I voted for the repeal but the Mayor makes an interesting argument and I'd like to hear what you think to inform my vote. It takes 14 to overturn a veto, there will be one absence.

Creating Section 28.022 - 00069 of the Madison General Ordinances rezoning property from PD(SIP) Planned Development (Specific Implementation Plan) District to Amended PD (GDP) Planned Development (General Development
Plan) District, and creating Section 28.022 - 00070 rezoning property from Amended PD (GDP) Planned Development (General Development Plan) District to Amended PD(SIP) Planned Development (Specific Implementation Plan) District. Proposed Use: Amend the general development plan and approve a specific implementation plan to convert Longfellow School into apartments and construct a new apartment building with 128 total units ; 13th Aldermanic District: 210 South Brooks Street.

#15 Declaring the City of Madison as a TPP-Free Zone.

#73 Affirming and Supporting the "Statement of Principles for the Homeless".

#83 Adopting the City Engineering logo as the official City of Madison logo.
Another way to take back the Capitol....
