D6 Items of Interest Week of July 30, 2018

July 27, 2018 10:37 PM

Highlights:  The Grandfamily project at Union Corners, now named Generations, is at Finance Monday, see the agenda below for more info.  The Comprehensive Plan is at the Plan Commission Monday for final adoption. Also at Plan, Grampa's Pizzeria asked for referral of their conditional use application for an outdoor patio to the Plan Commission meeting of August 20. Grampa's has not yet applied for a change of licensed premises at ALRC which would also go to the Common Council. The earliest they could be at ALRC is the September 26 meeting.  I held a neighborhood meeting last week and the sense of nearby neighbors and residents in attendance was to oppose the addition of a patio. There was also appreciation expressed by those in attendance for the opportunity to meet the new member of Grampa's management team who seemed to genuinely hear the concerns of neighbors and brings HR skills to the business. The Oscar Mayer Strategic Assessment Committee is holding an Open House on Thursday from 6-8p at Warner Park Community Rec Center. Neighborhood meeting August 14 for Winnebago Arts Cafe, 2262 Winnebago St, see end of blog for details.

Finance Committee

4:30p room 354 CCB


5. 52452 Authorizing the City, through the Community Development Division, to enter into various purchase of service contracts funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice - Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to address the issues of youth violence on Madison's Northside and guided by recommendation from a rigorous community-based strategic planning process.?


16. 52607 SUBSTITUE - Authorizing the execution of a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Gorman & Company, Inc. or its assigns ("Developer) for the purchase and redevelopment of City-owned property located at 2507 Winnebago Street ("the Property"); and 2) Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute a development agreement to sell the Property, valued at Six Hundred Eighty Six Thousand Dollars ($686,000) ("Land Value"), to Developer or its assigns for One Dollar ($1.00) and the Land Value financed by the City as a $686,000 loan to Developer ("TIF Loan").


Fiscal note: The proposed resolution authorizes a development agreement with Gorman Holdings Inc for property located within TID 37. Under the proposal, the City will provide a loan ($686,000) to the Developer through a land transaction.  The loan will be repaid through future increment in the district. Based on current projections TID 37 is currently generating $1.5m in increment annually with $4.5m of unrecovered costs. The district was opened in 2006. This resolution requires no additional appropriation. 


This resolution deletes the requirement to have a gap for land costs. Per the resolution "The Parties previously entered into an Option Agreement dated August 14, 2015 for the Property (the "Option"). The terms of the Option required that there be a gap in the amount of the land value. The City has agreed to terminate the Option in favor of providing the land in exchange for a guaranty in the amount of the TIF Loan as defined below, which is above the appraised land value." The outcome is still offering land for $1 in exchange for the increment which is guaranteed through a clawback formula. Gorman's WHEDA tax credit award is premised on land costs of $1.

17. 52533 Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to enter into an Inter-Governmental Agreement with Dane County regarding cost-sharing for reconstruction and future maintenance of Buckeye Road/CTH AB and Cottage Grove Road/CTH BB.

Fiscal note: The proposed resolution authorizes an inter-governmental agreement between the City of Madison and Dane County regarding the reconstruction and ongoing maintenance costs for Buckeye Road and Cottage Grove Road. The 2018 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) assumes Buckeye Road will be reconstructed in 2019 and Cottage Grove Road will be reconstructed in 2020. The proposed resolution modifies the cost sharing agreement for the reconstruction projects. The proposal assumes Buckeye Road will be an 80/20 split and Cottage Grove Road will be a 70/30 split between the City and County.  


At the MPO meeting on Wednesday, there is a proposal to reallocate the federal money for Buckeye Rd and Cottage Grove Rd to different street projects if the County and Mayor/city staff do not come to an agreement.
