Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of September 2, 2019

September 3, 2019 10:01 AM

Highlights: The Council returns from the August break Tuesday. On the agenda is the 2020 Executive Capital Budget. It is Mayor Rhodes-Conway's first budget. The Edgewood Master Plan revocation and the proposed zoning text amendment to CI (campus institutional zoning were referred at Plan Commission, so the Council will also refer both items. Last week, the Finance Committee decided to select Stone House Development for JDS Block 88 mixed use development with affordable housing instead of Gebhardt Development. On Wednesday, dogs in parks policies will be at Parks Long Range Planning subcommittee. Also on Wednesday, proposed ordinance changes to regulations that affect Air BnBs will be at Public Health. The TIF Review Board meets Thursday to review two TIF proposals and review Department of Revenue State and Local Finance Bureau annual report on new equalized value of all state TIDs. See below for more info about TID 36. The Salvation Army proposal for 600 blk E Wash and Movin' Out/Red Caboose proposal at Union Corners are both at CDBG on Thursday with applications for the city's Affordable Housing fund. If awarded funds, they will apply for WHEDA Section 42 tax credits in the Spring. In addition to the neighborhood, city, and WHEDA review process for the 600 blk  project, the Salvation Army needs to plan for the temporary relocation of their clients during construction. One option is to use their Darbo facility, more info below. There will be an open house Thursday to get your input on the current proposal for the Madison Public Market.

On September 12,  the National Guard Bureau will hold a public meeting about the draft Environmental Impact Statement at the Alliant Energy Center. At the end of the update, I've provided links to comment form, to the Executive Summary, the complete draft EIS, and existing and proposed noise maps. Thanks for all the comments you have provided so far. Alders surrounding the base were invited for a tour August 24. We provided questions in advance and received responses last week from Lt Col Daniel Statz.  Here are the answers to the questions I posed.

1.Would the F-35As would carry nuclear weapons? "Only units with a nuclear mission will be given the hardware necessary to carry nuclear weapons.   If selected to host the F-35A mission, the Truax jets, as they will be configured, will not be nuclear capable. Although the F-35A could eventually be "nuclear capable", the beddown being considered at Truax Field Air National Guard base does not include nuclear weapons storage."

2.What happens if Madison is not selected? Will the current base close, or will the F-16s stay and the personnel who run the base be retained? Or, will there be some other use?

"Installations with a flying mission historically have more full-time positions than non-flying wings.  In recent history, many Air National Guard F-16 units had converted to non-flying missions.  The beddown of the F-35A at Truax Field will secure a flying mission for many years into the future.  The Air Force/ANG is currently programmed to purchase up to 1,763 aircraft between 2013 and 2035. As such, the F-35A beddown process will be repeated every 2 years for future beddown decisions. "

3. If housing is deemed uninhabitable, will the federal government reimburse homeowners who are dislocated for their property at a fair rate?

"As stated in a note to table 3.6.1 of the EIS:
"The designations contained in this table do not constitute a Federal determination that any use of land covered by the program is acceptable or unacceptable under federal, state, or local law. The responsibility for determining the acceptable and permissible land uses and the relationship between specific properties and specific noise contours rests with the local authorities. FAA determinations under part 150 are not intended to substitute federally determined land uses for those determined to be appropriate by local authorities in response to locally determined needs and values in achieving noise compatible land uses."

Should the FAA prepare and implement an updated Part 150 Study, specific mitigations would be identified, if needed, and implemented to minimize impacts to residences within the 65 dB and higher DNL noise contours.  If mitigation is required, it can take the form of making improvements to structures that fall within certain noise levels (i.e., adding insulation, double-paned windows, etc.). It is important to note that the Part 150 program is not a guarantee that sound mitigation or abatement will take place.  Eligibility for sound insulation in noise-sensitive land uses through the FAA's Airport Improvement Program requires that the impacted property is located within a Day-Night Average Sound Level (DNL) 65 decibels (dB) or higher noise contour and meet various other criteria in FAA guide documents used for sound mitigation.

If, through the Air Force decision making process Truax is chosen for basing of the F-35, the cooperative planning effort called a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) could be initiated through coordination with Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment Compatible Use Program. The JLUS program is typically a joint venture between a military installation, surrounding jurisdictions, state and federal agencies, and other affected stakeholders to address compatibility around military installations. The goal of a JLUS is to reduce potential conflicts between military installations and surrounding areas while accommodating new growth and economic development, sustaining economic vitality, protecting public health and safety, and protecting the operational missions.  JLUS recommendations may involve revisions to the communities' comprehensive plans and traditional land use and development controls, such as zoning, subdivision regulations, building codes, and so forth. These changes encourage development of land uses that can thrive in the area challenged by the military mission.

Any detailed questions related to FAA procedures or possible actions would need to be directed to the FAA."

5.a. 56832 Creating Section 23.61 of the Madison General Ordinances to regulate goods and services advertised online that are required to be licensed, amending Section 1.08(3)(a) to create a bail deposit for violations thereof, and amending Section 1.08(4) to provide Director of Public Health Madison Dane County, Building Inspection Division Director and Humane Officers enforcement authority to issue citations for violations thereof. The proposed ordinance regulates goods and services advertised online that are required to be licensed (for example, tattooing, food items or tourist rooming houses). The ordinance also sets forfeitures between $20 and $300, depending on whether the violation is a first or subsequent occurrence. Public Health and Building Inspection anticipate approximately 20 citations per year. The fiscal impact is anticipated to be minimal

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Section 23.61 is created to regulate goods and services advertised online that are required to be licensed.  Internet marketplaces and social media sites are increasingly used to advertise goods and services that the City of Madison or a Wisconsin state agency regulates with a license; such as tattooing, food items or tourist rooming houses.  The City of Madison has an interest in ensuring compliance with both local and state laws as well as preserving the health and safety of its citizens.  Under Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. v. Pub. Serv. Comm'n of N.Y., 447 U.S. 557 (1980), the government may ban advertising by businesses that are operating illegally, such as unlicensed business where a license is required if necessary to advance the government's interest.  This ordinance will provide Public Health Madison Dane County and Building Inspection an enforcement tool.

8 57301 September 2019 Superintendent's Report
• IPM Taskforce – The IPM taskforce is working to extend its work throughout 2019 to better inform recommendations. Staff will present on the current status as a part of a land management update in November.
• Golf – The Common Council adopted a resolution (File #56004) to establish a Task Force on Municipal Golf in Madison Parks at its June 18, 2019 meeting. The Task Force will begin meeting in September and will focus on making recommendations on the multiple systematic issues related to golf.
• Dog Policy – The Long Range Planning Subcommittee continues work on reviewing the policy related to dogs in parks. LRP and staff have done substantial public engagement on this issue and are continuing to work on policy recommendations.
• Off-Leash Dog Parks – Staff is continuing to work on potential off-leash improvements. Staff continue to evaluate and work with Alders on locations in the priority area of Atwood/East Isthmus. This is a particularly challenging location and staff hopes to have additional concepts for discussion in the coming months.
• Alliant Energy Center Master Plan / Destination District Plan – Parks staff is working with Planning staff to prepare a presentation to the Commission on the County's work and plans for the Alliant area. This is anticipated to occur later this year.

Olbrich Botanical Gardens: GLEAM: Art in a New Light opens to the public on August 28 and runs Wednesday through Saturday evenings through October 26. Olbrich Botanical Society received a $30,000 Joint Effort Marketing (JEM) grant from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism to market GLEAM in the Milwaukee market. Kudos to Katy Plantenberg, PR & Marketing Manager and Jamie Kuehn, active volunteer for writing a successful grant! It takes a lot of staff and volunteers to 'run' GLEAM for two months (48 evenings). There are 308 volunteer shifts alone, which are already 70% filled.

Recreation Services: • Sina Davis Movies in the Park Program has been very well attended with over 2,114 people participating so far. Some parks have had refreshments brought to the park by the NRT's or neighborhood groups. A big thank you to those folks adding to the movies in the Park. By the time the program ends in early September, we will have hosted 20 different movies in 15 different parks.

Park Rangers • For the month of August we have been focusing on proactive alcohol patrols of those parks which prohibit alcohol. Rangers have also been working with Madison Police in an effort to address some behavioral issues in Reynolds park, where a Temporary Alcohol ban was put in place in late August.

Burr Jones Park – Site Improvements • The construction contract for the Burr Jones Park improvements was awarded to R. G. Huston. Improvements to the park include a new parking lot, bio retention area, basketball court, bike path connection and new athletic field lighting system. The preconstruction meeting was held the week of August 19th with work starting shortly afterward. Project completion is schedule for spring of 2020. Parks staff worked with MUFA, the Madison Ultimate Frisbee Association, who are the primary user group for the fields, and reached an agreed that league play will not start until 2021. The delay provides a full season of growth for turf establishment resulting in a more resilient play surface over time.

Park Operations Quarterly Report June - August 2019
EAST PARKS (Kristin Mathews) The first East Parks pollinator garden was installed at Washington Manor Park with a grant from UW Extension. The effort was supported by Parks staff and volunteers from the Eken Park neighborhood. An educational sign will be installed this fall. All East Parks ash trees due for injection treatment were completed. Several ash trees were not re-adopted along the Yahara River. We worked extensively with the 4 neighborhood association to determine the trees to re-treat and clearly communicate the trees that will be removed in the fall. Also, the trees at Tenney Park that did not survive the flooding were mapped and tree removal will begin in September. The Alder and Neighborhood Association were informed. The Parks crew will map all removals for Planning's information.

The new Burial Mound Policy was approved by the Habitat Stewardship Subcommittee on August 20th. It will go before the Park Commission on September 4th.

57198 2019 Annual TIF Report to the Joint Review Board

This is the time of year that the Department of Revenue issues new Equalized Values. Based on the new values, the city can plan future capital budget allocations (and know whether there is cash from the TID or if we need to use General Obligation borrowing).  Staff has provided annual reports for each Tax Incremental Finance district.  D6 has two active districts: Capital East (36) and Union Corners/Atwood (37).

TID 36 is about to turn the corner and create increment beyond what is budgeted for. The TID was created in 2005 and it is a little over halfway through the legal lifespan.  I have asked Mayor Rhodes-Conway to initiate a city and stakeholder conversation about future TID 36 projects (partial undergrounding, Public Market, donate to other TIDs etc) which may require budget, project plan and possibly boundary amendments. Stay tuned to the Executive Capital budget to be introduced on September 3.

57324 Public Hearing on the 2020-2024 Goals and Objectives for Federal Funding

55938 Accepting the 2019 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) study

4. 57325 Presentations from Applicants in the 2019 Affordable Housing Fund RFP Process

5:30-6:05 pm The Salvation Army ($1M)
6:10-6:45 pm MSP Real Estate  (1.95M)
6:50-7:25 pm Movin' Out/Red Caboose ($1.025M)
7:30-8:05 pm Gorman & Company (1.62M)

Applicants awarded city Affordable Housing funds can increase their score when they apply for WHEDA Section 42 tax credits. The city has been leveraging this fall funding process for five years so applicants can add the city allocation to their spring applications and increase the chance of being awarded WHEDA tax credits. It has been a really successful program.

The Salvation Army proposes to acquire adjacent property and demolish the existing shelter to construct purpose-built shelter and transitional housing at their 600 block E Washington location in Tenney Lapham. They have been working with the neighbors and nearby business stakeholders. In addition to working through the concerns of the neighborhood regarding operations and site plan issues, the Salvation Army must have a viable solution to provide temporary housing (15+ months) for single women and families as part of their planning. One of the options is to put up to 45 single women in their Darbo location. There are two other options they are reviewing.  I recently spoke to Major Andrew Shiels about this. He was aware of TSA's previous proposal to relocate all of their services to Darbo and understood that police, city planning staff, the alder and the neighborhood had serious reservations about the proposal. I told him I was willing to create a public engagement process with the neighborhood but advised the Major I would wait until I got feedback before I made a final determination about support. I also advised him to provide more than one realistic option for temporary housing so we could consider the pros and cons. He understood.

Movin' Out and Red Caboose have teamed up to provide a new daycare facility and affordable housing at 6th St and Winnebago in Union Corners that will target housing for teachers and families/individuals with a disability. The project has evolved over a year. Red Caboose now has agreements to purchase two adjacent houses to expand the footprint of the project. The height has been reduced and more parking for residents provided.  I held a second neighborhood meeting this summer and nearby neighbors were in support.
