Alder Rummel’s Updates
D6 Items of Interest Week of May 4, 2020
Highlights: On Monday, the Landmarks Commission and the Transportation Policy and Planning Board both have very full meetings. Neither have met since the city curtailed many of the board, committee and commission meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of note at Landmarks is the demolition report that includes information about the buildings on the 1900 block of Winnebago and Russell St in Schenks Corners that was the subject of the neighborhood meeting I held last week. Also at Landmarks is the proposed land combination at 909-915 Jenifer St to create an affordable and cooperatively managed housing development. If you want to share comments send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. At TPPB on Monday is the Oscar Mayer Special Area Plan. Nearby neighbors have contacted the Council about their interest in expanding the greenspace/wetland area near the Hartmeyer Ice Arena and expressed concerns about adding a street connection between Coolidge and Packers Ave. In addition, the Wilson Corridor and Vision Zero project are topics for discussion. Finally the project agreement with the City and WisDOT to construct an interchange at USH 12/18 and County AB is at TPPB and at Council (for final approval) on Tuesday. The intersection is one of the most dangerous intersections in the city. Most of the funds are from the state through federal pass through monies. I have heard concerns about the lack of multimodal bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure proposed in this project. If you want to share comments with TPPB email email@example.com and with the council firstname.lastname@example.org. This project will likely have a 50 year life span and we should make sure we get it right.
Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway will be in attendance and make opening remarks at TPPB on Monday and the Madison Food Policy Council on Wednesday.
As you have likely heard, the Waterfront Festival and La Fete de Marquette have been cancelled for 2020. Both events are important fundraisers for the Marquette Neighborhood Association and the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center. Both organizations will need community support to help them maintain programming for kids and families and all the other work they do for the near east side. At the last ALRC meeting, the Commission adopted language as they approved temporary alcohol licenses for Concerts on the Square and Live on King St: "Under order of Governor Tony Evers and Public Health Madison & Dane County, effective immediately and until further notice, all public and private gatherings of any number are prohibited in the State of Wisconsin as part of the Safer at Home Emergency Order. If these orders, or other event restrictions are still in place on the date(s) of your event, they supersede and invalidate this approved street use permit".
Tuesday's Council meeting includes several D6 alcohol licenses, suspending interest and penalties for late property tax installment payments, and accepting the Final Report of the President's Work Group to Develop City-wide Surveillance Equipment and Data Management Policies. "Plans and specs" for a Spaight St traffic circle at Dickinson are part of a package of traffic calming measures (see agenda item #71). And under new business for introduction is a significant change to the storm water ordinance in MGO Chapter 37 in response to flooding and climate change. The proposed changes will add costs to development projects. I am a sponsor of the ordinance.
Last week City Engineering Division announced its reconstruction work on a flooding improvement project on the City's west side earned one of the American Public Works Association's Public Works National Small Project of the Year for 2020 for the Southwest Bike Path Culvert at the end of Waite Circle, which is located just east of Midvale Boulevard. In August of 2018, the west side of Madison, Wis., received over 10 inches of rain in a 12-hour period. For reference, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Atlas 14 statistics show the 12-hour 1,000-year recurrence interval storm at 8.92 inches. This rain event was well over the expected or projected amount of rain received. In 2019, the City moved from emergency response and repair to widespread citizen information/education campaigns, comprehensive and detailed watershed monitoring and modeling and immediate infrastructure upgrades. Also on the Council agenda Tuesday is authorization to provide engineering services for the next watershed study for the East Isthmus and Yahara River.

4. 60137 1246 Spaight St - Construction of a new garage structure in the Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald. Dist
5. 60138 1254 Rutledge St - Demolition of an existing garage structure and construction of a new garage structure in the Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald. Dist
6. 60204 7-11 N Pinckney St - Variance from the Historic Preservation Ordinance to allow the demolition of a Designated Madison Landmark; 4th Ald. Dist.
The applicant is requesting a Public Interest Variance from the demolition standards for securing a Certificate of Appropriateness to demolish the landmark buildings at 7-11 N Pinckney. This request is part of a larger redevelopment that would combine several parcels. The proposed redevelopment would incorporate the landmark building at 1 N Pinckney (American Exchange Bank), demolish the buildings at 7-11 N Pinckney but salvage the second story façade on 7 N Pinckney for incorporation to the new structure. The request before the Landmarks Commission at this point is just the variance request to demolish 7-11 N Pinckney. In order to move forward, the proposal would also need Certificates of Appropriateness for the land combination and new construction, and an advisory recommendation to the Plan Commission for development adjacent to a Landmark.
7. 60205 909-915 Jenifer St - Land combination in the Third Lake Ridge Hist. Dist.; 6th Ald. Dist.
The applicant is requesting a Certificate of Appropriateness to combine the two existing parcels at 909 and 911- 915 Jenifer Street into a single parcel that would contain both principal structures.
The applicant sent me and the MNA Board the following info: 915 is currently a 4 unit rental with small backyard, 909 is a 2 unit rental with concrete parking and garage in back.
A few highlights of our plans for the new development:
- Mix of 11 SRO units and four apartment-lite-style suites (2BR, 3BR, 4BR and 5BR)
- Most units will be priced to be affordable based on 50% AMI income limits
- A large dining area / commercial kitchen as well as utility room, laundry room and recreation room will be added in the basements which we plan to connect underground (the two houses are only 3 feet apart)
- Creating an addition to the 909 property that will roughly double the amount of existing living space.
- Once the redevelopment is complete have the properties owned long-term by a non-profit and managed cooperatively by the residents/members.
- Both properties will have deep energy retrofits, including insulation to modern standards, upgrading HVAC systems and installing 20-30kW of solar PV.
- Purchase three electric vehicles which will be owned by the non-profit and shared by the residents/members of the properties. The vehicles will be parked on the existing off-street parking stalls at the 909 property.
- Expect to include Historic Tax Credits, Affordable Housing Program funds as well as a variety of energy-related incentives.
8. 59575 Adopting the Historic Preservation Plan as a supplement to the Comprehensive Plan, directing staff to implement the recommendations contained in the plan, and dissolving the Historic Preservation Plan Advisory Committee.
9. 59810 935 W Johnson Street, 8th Ald. Dist.: Consideration of a demolition permit to demolish a single-family residence to accommodate a future University of Wisconsin-Madison academic building.
On March 9, 2020, the Plan Commission asked for a more detailed report from the Preservation Planner on the history of the structure located at 935 W Johnson. Due to the current health crisis, the Preservation Planner does not have all resources available for research on the property. Without physical access to the Register of Deeds office and only the digital resources available through other repositories, the research is incomplete. At the April 13 Plan Commission meeting, they voted to refer this project to the Landmarks Commission for that body to review the findings of the Preservation Planner and provide an advisory recommendation to the Plan Commission regarding the historic value of the property

1 60387 Food Systems Response During COVID-19 - Satya Rhodes-Conway, Mayor - City of Madison
2 60388 Review Current Madison Food Policy Council Structure and Discuss Potential Changes
Mayor Rhodes-Conway will be attending this meeting to provide an overview of the emergency food response in the city to date and describe the "relief and recovery" policy approach she's proposing going forward. This document identifies some of the fundamental issues that will need to be addressed, and proposes some ideas for restructuring the MFPC to support the community's immediate food access needs during the pandemic and build more resilient food systems for the future. Assumptions: · The Madison Food Policy Council is well positioned to do this work. · Prioritize strategies the City has control over, e.g. growing produce on city-owned lands, and repurposing existing city funding for food programs. · Analyze potential strategies using racial equity and social justice, sustainability and resilience tools to maximize community engagement and evaluate effectiveness.
