Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of September 4, 2018

September 3, 2017 11:18 PM

Highlights: Budget season officially begins Tuesday with the introduction of the 2018 Executive Capital Budget, it will have the latest major street construction projects for the next 5 years and other public infrastructure improvements. At Tuesday's Council meeting, there is a 3rd substitute on studying future governance that is a hybrid between the resolution introduced by some members of the Council and the Mayor's alternate resolution (which will be placed on file). I am pleased we were able to work through our differences and find a way forward. For introduction at Tuesday's meeting is a resolution to help WilMar fund the purchase of the parking lot owned by Immanuel Lutheran and an initiative to create a plan to address the confederate monument in Forest Hill cemetery. On Thursday, the MPD Policy and Procedures Ad Hoc Committee will be getting presentations that may be of interest, including an update from Michael Gennaco from the OIR consultant group.

14. 47763 Amending Section 28. 151 of the Madison General Ordinances to clarify that any change in a limited production and processing use requires a conditional use alteration.


This amendment expands upon the existing supplemental regulations for the Limited Production and Processing use. Limited Production and Processing, is defined by Section 28.211 and regulated under Section 28.151. The use requires Conditional Use approval in certain districts where it is allowed. This amendment to Section 28.151 clarifies that any change in use, either through changing the product being produced or the intensity with which the product is produced and processed, requires a Conditional Use alteration pursuant to Section 28.183(8). This will ensure that the use won't change from the production of one item to another, or from one production level, intensity, process, or method to another, without taking into account the impact the change might have on the neighborhood or surrounding properties.

The proposed resolution authorizes a sole source purchase of services contract, not to exceed $450,000, with CORRE, Inc. for relocation assistance and property management services for the tenants and improvements remaining on land purchased for the expansion of Central Park, located at 202 S.

129. 46508 SUBSTITUTE 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.


130. 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.

5. 48163 Amending Sections

27.03(2), 27.05(1) and 27.05(2)(f) of the Madison General Ordinances to clarify a property owner's responsibility over the adjoining terrace.


DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Property owners are generally responsible for mowing and maintaining the terraces adjoining their property.  This ordinance change would clarify that responsibility by adding the terrace to the property maintenance code.  In addition, this amendment specifically would require soil and surfaces to be maintained in a safe and sanitary manner.  This would clarify the City's authority to require a property owner to ensure that property under his or her control is not a hazard.
