26. 48603 SUBSTITUTE - Authorizing up to $300,000 of CDBG funds to support the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center's acquisition of a property they currently lease that serves to support the Center's programs, and amending the 2017 Adopted Operating Budget to appropriate $300,000 from the Community Development Grant Fund
Fiscal Note. The proposed resolution authorizes $300,000 as a long-term deferred loan to Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, Inc. for acquisition of property located at 1001 Jenifer Street, which is currently leased by Wil-Mar to support the Center's programs. The $300,000 will be funded by CDBG program income. ?
WilMar is requesting CDBG funds to assist in the purchase of the parking lot. The lot is currently owned by Immanuel Lutheran Church. Fortunately, WilMar and Immanuel Lutheran were able to work out an agreement for the sale. WilMar has launched a $1.75 million capital campaign to support the land acquisition and the expansion of the center. WilMar has secured a lead gift of $500,000 leaving a balance of $1.25 million. You may not realize that 70% of the center participants are low-moderate income persons including almost 40% with incomes less than 30% of the area median income. Almost one-quarter of the participants are people of color. The request was unanimously approved by the Community Block Grant Committee last week.
Please be prepared to donate to this beloved neighborhood institution that has provided services to our community since 1968.

2. 47273 ALTERNATE Creating Section 4.30 of the Madison General Ordinances to create a program for funding public art projects for certain public works projects. Update MAC on progress of legislation and discuss substitute that will be presented to Common Council on September 19.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance would create a program for funding public art projects whenever the City invests in a capital project meeting the criteria set forth in the ordinance. The ordinance would apply to certain enumerated public works projects whose anticipated construction costs exceed five million dollars. The funding for the arts would be in addition to the project budget and would not come from nor reduce the original project budget itself. Project budgets would be increased under this ordinance. The ordinance requires that an additional one percent be added to an eligible project's budget (by GO funds) for expenditure on art development at the project. The ordinance would allow, with Common Council approval, the expenditure of such funds at a site other than the eligible project under certain limited criteria and it would allow for the deposit of some or all such funds into the Art Aggregated Fund (for new art projects) or the Art Maintenance and Conservation Fund (for conservation and maintenance of the City's Art). These two segregated funds are established by this ordinance. The ordinance also allows the Common Council to reduce the amount of the arts funding under extraordinary circumstances but prohibits the complete elimination of this funding for the arts. The ordinance would also require that artists funded under this program waive any Visual Artists Rights Act (VARA) applicability so that the City has complete ownership and discretion over the location, display and maintenance of artwork acquired under this ordinance. However, in exceptional circumstances artists may not be required to waive their VARA rights so long as the Arts Administrator obtains the consent of the City Attorney and the Madison Arts Commission and the merits of the artwork outweigh the risks of requiring a VARA waiver. The Arts Program Administrator shall file an annual report, with the Capital budget, that addresses the implementation of this ordinance. The ordinance would become effective beginning with eligible projects that are first let two years after the passage of the ordinance.
