Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of April 15, 2019

April 14, 2019 10:44 PM

Highlights: Tuesday is the last meeting of the old council, the swearing in of the new council and new mayor, election of council leadership, and the first meeting of the new term. We start at noon and then reconvene at 6:30p. It will be an emotional day full of goodbyes and reminiscences, and excitement for the future. I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues and the new Mayor. Mayor-Elect Rhodes Conway will post committee assignments tomorrow. Tuesday's Council agenda has two D6 alcohol licenses for final approval, Prism nightclub and Bar Corallini. At ALRC Wednesday are two license applications – the BP gas station on Atwood requests approval to add wine sales and Ian's Pizza Garver wants to serve beer and wine. The ALRC will also get a briefing on the Alcohol Outlet Study. For those following the future of the Monona golf course, the Golf Subcommittee meets Thursday. The MPD Policy and Procedures Review Ad Hoc Committee also meets Thursday to continue discussion of their report.

Next week I am co-hosting with Alder Mike Verveer the first neighborhood meeting about the McGrath Property Group's proposal to develop a new mixed-use project called "The East End," which will be situated on most of the properties currently owned by the Essen Haus (with the exception of the Hotel Ruby Marie and Up North Bar). The McGrath team is waiting to hear from neighbors and stakeholders before submitting any renderings so come to the meeting Thursday April 25 at 7p in room 153 MMB to help shape the development. More details at the end of the blog.

McGrath Property Group is proposing to construct a new mixed-use project called "The East End," which will be situated on most of the properties currently owned by the Essen Haus (with the exception of the Hotel Ruby Marie).  The proposed plan will create approximately 230 to 250 residential units, up to 340 covered parking stalls and 10,000 to 20,000 square feet of commercial space.  McGrath proposes to demolish the four existing homes on 112-120 S. Blair Street and the buildings housing most of the Essen Haus restaurant on E. Wilson Street.  Two existing buildings on E. Wilson Street (506 E. Wilson - Come Back In - and 518 E. Wilson Street) will be restored as part of this project.  McGrath intends to submit their formal Land Use Application for the project to the City on May 29, 2019.  Construction is projected to begin on October 1, 2019, with occupancy slated for April 1, 2021.
