Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of July 27, 2020

July 27, 2020 12:58 AM

Highlights:  Police policy and practices are on the agenda of several committees this week. The Alder Workgroup to Develop Logistics and Operation Details for MPD Independent Civilian Oversight meets on Monday to discuss the Independent Monitor job description and budget issues and Wednesday (the agenda is not yet posted). At Finance on Monday, there is an ordinance prohibiting the Madison Police Department from obtaining any property from the Defense Logistics Agency under the 1033 Program. At the Public Safety Review Committee Policy Subcommittee on Tuesday, the Committee reviews several of MPD's Standard Operating Procedures with Acting Chief Vic Wahl. On Wednesday the Public Safety Review Committee Budget Subcommittee looks at staffing levels and associated costs. And on Thursday the Body-Worn Camera Feasibility Review Committee meets, the agenda is not yet posted.

 

The Plan Commission holds its regular meeting on Monday taking up 126 Langdon St among other items. The PC holds a special meeting on Thursday on possible adjustments to the Zoning Code that could support additional housing. This will be a general conversation, no proposals are on the table. Topics include - Accessory dwelling units - Potential new zoning districts - City-funded affordable housing - Demolition ordinance. Check out the link to the staff report below.

 

The next phase of the redevelopment of the Mautz block,  920 E Main, the Archipelago Apartments will be at Urban Design Commission Wednesday for an informational presentation.  Curt Brink and the Korb family propose to build a 10 story residential building with 20% affordable units.

 

At last week's Council meeting, the Council voted 19-1 to terminate the contract with the Madison Metropolitan School District to provide School Resource Officers for the four MMSD high schools. We also referred the bird-safe vision glass treatment ordinance to the August 4 Council meeting.  The Council voted down the Downtown Recovery program and the Downtown Equity program. I was convinced by the public testimony and debate on the Council floor to vote against the funding and the program. We were challenged by opponents of the program to justify how we spend public money. Business owners devastated by looting in the central business district starting May 30 or all small businesses hurt by COVID -19 in 2020? We were asked to use public funds for people and business impacted by COVID, not just downtown businesses damaged during the protests. I worked at the Rainbow Bookstore Coop on Gilman St for over 20 years and spent many years on State St. I heard the pain and pleas for help from several immigrant business owners but agreed that while the ordinance and funding authorization that came to the Council on July 21 had been amended in positive ways, it was not ready to move forward in its current configuration. Alders will continue to work on a solid recovery plan that supports equitable economic recovery.

In March 2020, Congress passed and the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"), which provides critical supplemental funding to communities in their local response efforts to the COVID-19 pandemic. Acceptance of the CARES Act funds that are allocated via HUD's Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) requires a HUD Grantee to submit a Substantial Amendment to its FY19 Annual Action Plan. The City of Madison has been awarded $1,160,897 in supplemental Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds and $2,890,929 in supplemental Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV) funds through the CARES Act, to help prevent, prepare for and respond to coronavirus. These funds can used to support local Action Plan objectives that include Housing Assistance, Small Business (Micro-Enterprise) Development, and public services at Neighborhood Centers, as well as administration costs associated with the management of funded contracts. Specific allocation decisions will be determined by CDD via one or more Request for Proposal (RFP) processes, to be conducted over the next few months.

Over the past six years (2014-2019), the average annual value of items received was $160,138.

1. 61138 Report of the Facade Grant Staff Team - 210 S. Dickinson Street. 6th Ald. Dist.

 

12. 61287 SUBSTITUTE - Amending 33.24(15)(e)2 of the Madison General Ordinances to change the minimum stepback setback on East-West streets on block 13.b. of Urban Design District 8.

Staff report on text amendment to UDD #8 block 13.b

 

This text amendment is being sought based on a recent project approval. On May 27, 2020, the Urban Design Commission granted final approval of the "WHEDA Building" at 902 E. Main. Following approval by the Urban Design and Plan Commissions, it was determined that the applicant had designed the setbacks based on the earlier version of the code, with the more flexible setbacks. The approved plans included an 11 foot setback on Main Street, where a 15 foot setback would be required. Staff note that this information was obtained from the City's Website, and has since been corrected. There is not a waiver provision to alter this setback and the only way for that project to proceed as approved is this text amendment. Staff notes that due to its level of specificity, portions of UDD 8 have been amended to accommodate certain developments. Staff supports the text amendment and believes that the approved setback is consistent with the existing context and responds appropriately to the existing historic telephone building.

 

13. 61288 920 E. Main Street - Archipelago Apartments and Phasing Updates in UDD No. 8. 6th Ald. Dist. 920 E Main Plans 7/29/20

 

This is an informational presentation.
