D6 Items of Interest Week of November 30, 2020
Highlights: The Police Civilian Oversight Board holds its first meeting on Monday. The creation of the Civilian Oversight Board, composed of civilians who reflect all of Madison's diverse communities and the lived experiences of those members of the community who frequently come into contact with the police along with the creation of the Office of Independent Monitor were two of the major recommendations from the MPD Policy and Procedures Ad Hoc Review Committee. The report adopted in October 2019 contains 177 specific recommendations which are designed to chart a path for the future that will help bring together Madison's diverse communities and its police department, build mechanisms for collaboration and trust through enhanced civilian input and oversight of the policing function, and ensure that the Madison Police Department continues its long-standing ideals of community policing and problem-oriented policing.
Other police accountability related issues this week. At Tuesday's Common Council meeting, we will take up SUBSTITUTE - Creating Section 23.63 of the Madison General Ordinances establishing a Ban on the Use of Face Surveillance Technology. And on Friday, the Body-Worn Camera Feasibility Review Committee is reviewing the final draft of their report.
On Tuesday, the Common Council Executive Committee and the Common Council take up a Resolution authorizing the placement of advisory referendum questions related to the structure of city government on the Spring 2021 general election ballot. This is an issue residents need to pay attention to. With the upcoming redistricting, we have the opportunity to look at how the Council is structured. More details in CC agenda #49.
Also on Tuesday, both the CCEC and Common Council will take up a resolution introduced by two alders to address homeless encampments in city parks. Substitute: Directing City Staff to Address Encampments in the City Parks and to Investigate Other Temporary Housing Options for the Unsheltered Homeless Population Camping in city parks is not legal per ordinances. But during the COVID pandemic, the City following the advice of the CDC, set up protocols to allow individuals to camp in selected parks. But many people are camping in unapproved parks including McPike Park. When I first became aware of the homeless encampment in McPike Park, I reached out to Parks Division, MPD and Community Development Division staff to find out if the city was finding shelter and providing services to campers. I was informed that yes, outreach staff, primarily Sankofa, have been at McPike trying to connect with individuals to make sure people are aware of resources and have completed the city's housing assessment tool. Later reports from staff indicated some success with setting people up in hotels and other temporary options. The unapproved encampment at McPike Park has not generated a lot of police calls according to Officer Ken Brown of the Central District MPD at the meeting I attended last week with The Beacon staff, city and county staff and elected officials. At the same meeting, Officer Kraig Kalka noted the togetherness and sense of community he saw in the encampment. Nearby neighbors on E Wilson requested more trash receptacles to deal with detritus from car campers and I was able to work with the Streets Dept. to add bins. I have heard from other residents concerned about the safety of campers with the onset of winter. I did receive a couple of comments from residents who observed problematic behaviors or felt uncomfortable using the park, but I also got positive reports from neighbors who lived across the street. The opening of the Fleet building in December as a temporary men's shelter should provide more space then is currently available at Warner Park. City staff is working closely with the county to leverage shelter options for families. One of the reasons the city is leasing the former Karmenta site at 4502 Milwaukee St (at Finance on Monday) is to work with the Salvation Army who will use the site to provide safe shelter for families. I do not support the substitute resolution as it is drafted. We don't need to punish people who are not ready to accept shelter and our staff, whether police or park rangers, do not need to be in a position to forcibly remove people from encampments in parks where it is not permitted. The city, along with the county and our nonprofits partners are already working to find temporary housing for every interested unsheltered person. Please save the date and join Alder Syed Abbas, Alder Patrick Heck, and me for a virtual neighborhood meeting on Wednesday December 9 at 7p where we will have a discussion with City staff and the shelter operator about the temporary use of the city owned Fleet Building 200 N. First Street as an overnight shelter operation serving men experiencing homelessness.
On Thursday December 3 at 7-8p, Capitol Neighborhoods Inc is sponsoring a meeting with residents and MPD about public safety, more details below.
Madison's successful Shared Streets program ended in early November for the remainder of 2020 to allow for winter maintenance. The program, which limited non-residential motor vehicle access to streets to open the street to physically distanced walking and biking during COVID-19, received favorable citywide feedback. Atwood Ave near Olbrich Park was part of the program. Traffic Engineering will be using the winter to evaluate the Shared Streets Program to determine how to best move forward in 2021. The City is reaching out to the public to help gather information on the current program. Community members are encouraged to complete the Shared Streets Survey by December 1.

7. 62652 Authorizing the process to select a Public Art feature for Metro Phase II and Phase IIIA
11. 62710 Authorizing the Transit General Manager to enter into an agreement with the State of Wisconsin and required terms to accept the Volkswagen Mitigation Program/Transit Capital Assistance Grant Program Award of funds not to exceed $7,522,500 to purchase 15 replacement diesel buses and dispose of the corresponding older fleet in 2022.
14. 62978 A Resolution amending the 2020 Public Health Operating Budget to accept $100,000 from the WI Department of Health Services and authorizing the Director of Public Health Madison and Dane County to sign a non-competitive contract with Harambee Village Doulas, LLC to pilot a prenatal care and doula program for women at high risk of adverse birth outcomes in Dane County.
18. 62961 Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute an Amendment to the Structural Agreement with Overture Center Foundation, Inc. and an Annual Performance Contract for the 2021 operations of the Overture Center, and providing for a grant from the City.

20. 61936 Accepting the final report and recommendations from the Task Force on Municipal Golf in Madison Parks.
Fiscal Note: The final report of the Task Force on Municipal Golf in Madison Parks proposes 10 changes to the operations of the City's Municipal Golf Program. Many of these changes, if adopted, will result in a fiscal effect. Changes with the greatest fiscal implications include:
1. Establish a plan and timeline to eliminate 18 holes at Yahara Hills: The fiscal impact is unknown at this time, but it is likely that there would be expenditure savings from the reduction in holes at Yahara. Annual expenditures averaged $1.3m from 2016 to 2019, with course deficits ranging from $47k to $125k each year.
2. Issue an RFP to evaluate a private or non-profit operator for Monona: Annual expenses of operating Monona range from $460k to $523k, with revenues ranging from $380k to $443k. From 2016-2019, revenues were not sufficient to cover expenses.
3. Ensure that if City resources are used to invest in capital projects at golf courses, it is done in an equitable and fiscally responsible manner to reduce negative impact on park services: The Task Force report outlines the capital needs of the courses, which include increased capital costs of $28-57 million over the next 20 years, and annual operating costs of $4.9-7.4m in debt service.
4. Not sell park land to fund capital improvements of the golf courses.
Additionally, the Task Force recommends removing the enterprise fund designation from the City's golf courses. While no fiscal impact is anticipated, designating golf as an enterprise fund allows for closer tracking of assets, liabilities, cash flow and other measures of this program activity. This designation does not prohibit providing a property tax subsidy to golf operations, if that is a priority of the Mayor and Common Council. It does reflect that golf is primarily a business activity of the city and is primarily funded by user fees.

5. 62393 SUBSTITUTE. Directing City Staff to Address Encampments in the City Parks and to Investigate Other Temporary Housing Options for the Unsheltered Homeless Population.
Fiscal Note: Emergency Order #2, issued on May 6, 2020, permits City staff to create temporary permissible encampments (TPEs) in parks and greenways to which City ordinances that prohibit camping would not apply. This order was intended to align with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, which recommended that municipalities refrain from breaking up TPEs, and instead encourage sanitation and social distancing at TPEs. Since this Emergency Order, three TPEs have been created. Homeless individuals have also continued to reside unlawfully in encampments outside of TPEs.
The proposed resolution requires City staff to prioritize identification of individuals experiencing unsheltered homelessness, and make efforts to connect them with suitable housing. Once an individual is offered an alternate legal housing option, they would no longer be permitted to use the TPE. Within 30 days of this resolution's adoption, the Community Development Division must prepare a report for the Council that: (1) assesses the extent of the impact of camping sites on the City's parks, (2) outlines existing housing options for those experiencing unsheltered homelessness, (3) identifies financial and physical resources that may be available to assist the homeless, (4) looks for a near and long-term solution to emergency shelter needs to take the burden off of the Warner Park Community Recreation Center, and (5) suggests options that may be pursued by the City and its partners to better provide for this population.
6. 62930 A Resolution authorizing the placement of advisory referendum questions related to the structure of city government on the Spring 2021 general election ballot.

7. 61929 2nd SUBSTITUTE - Amending Sections 28.211, 28.061, 28.072, 28.082 and 28.091 and Creating Section 28.141(8)(e) of the Madison General Ordinances to create a new use, Electric Vehicle Charging Facility, and to require that certain parking facilities are constructed or reconstructed to include a specified amount of Electric Vehicle Ready Spaces and Electric Vehicle Installed Spaces
8. 61589 Amending the City of Madison Official Map to establish mapped reservations for future Streets and Highways in the current and future City of Madison generally located north of Milwaukee Street between N Fair Oaks Avenue and West Corporate Drive consistent with recommendations in the adopted Milwaukee Street Special Area Plan.
11/23/20 PLAN COMMISSION RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT WITH THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS - REPORT OF OFFICER On a motion by Rummel, seconded by Sundquist, to recommend to Council to adopt with the following recommendations: -That staff explore alternative ways to connect proposed Chicago Avenue to Fair Oaks Avenue.
-On a motion by Cantrell, seconded by Hagenow, an amendment to the main motion that the east-west extension of Chicago Avenue and north-south extension of Walter Street be officially mapped, and the other local streets be removed from the Official Map amendment. -That Council refer this item to January 5, 2021, to provide Staff time to prepare alternatives and new exhibits per the recommendations above.
Alder: Using the Official Map is a rarely used tool that allows the City to operationalize adopted plans like the Milwaukee Street Special Area Plan recommendations for the area north of Milwaukee St. I cosponsored the Official Map amendment with Alder Grant Foster who realized the potential of this approach. At Plan Commission in response to the concerns of the property owner on Fair Oaks whose house is located where the street connection is proposed, I amended the recommendation and requested staff to explore alternative ways to connect the Chicago St extension to Fair Oaks. That recommendation passed and the Official Map is being referred. The separate effort by Alder Grant Foster to rezone the properties in this area (see agenda item #20) to reflect the recommendations of the Milwaukee St Special Area adopted plan is getting pushback from at least one of the property owners who prefers to keep the existing industrial zoning. If you are interested in the future of the Voit Farm and the residential redevelopment of Milwaukee St, please pay attention to the rezoning and the Official Map to represent adopted plans for the area. I know many of you seek a community benefits approach to redeveloping the Voit lands, I share that commitment.

48. 62393 SUBSTITUTE. Directing City Staff to Address Encampments in the City Parks and to Investigate Other Temporary Housing Options for the Unsheltered Homeless Population. Agenda Note: The Common Council Executive Committee is meeting on 12/1/20 and a recommendation will be made from the floor.
49. 62930 A Resolution authorizing the placement of advisory referendum questions related to the structure of city government on the Spring 2021 general election ballot. Agenda Note: The Common Council Executive Committee is meeting on 12/1/20 and a recommendation will be made from the floor.
Fiscal Note: The proposed resolution authorizes the placement of advisory referendum questions to the spring 2021 ballot regarding the structure of City government. Additionally, the resolution instructs City officials to develop plans for informing the public and evaluating the results of the referendum questions. If the proposed referendum questions increase the ballot length, the City will incur additional costs from the County Clerk. The City Clerk has begun discussions with the County Clerk to determine potential costs. However, these conversations have been delayed as the County is currently conducting a recount of the presidential election ballots. Historically, ballot printing costs have varied by approximately $3,000. Any dramatic increases associated with ballot or planning costs may require additional appropriation. Resolution #58656, which accepted the final report of the Task Force on Government Structure, discusses initial estimates associated with structure changes and estimates an additional $1m in costs from transitioning to a full-time council.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Common Council directs City staff to take the necessary steps to place the following four advisory referendum questions on ballot in the Spring 2021 general election:
1. Madison currently has a part-time Common Council who are paid approximately thirteen-thousand seven hundred ($13,700) per year. The Task Force on Government Structure recommends that the City of Madison transition to a full-time Common Council. Beginning with the 2023 Spring Election, SHOULD the City of Madison transition to a full-time Common Council?
2. Madison currently has a part-time Common Council comprised of twenty (20) alderpersons, one from each alderperson district. The Task Force on Government Structure recommends that the City of Madison transition to a full-time Common Council comprised of ten (10) alderpersons, one from each alderperson district. Beginning with the 2023 Spring Election, SHOULD the size of the City of Madison Common Council be reduced? Beginning with the 2023 Spring Election, SHOULD the size of the City of Madison Common Council be increased? SHOULD the size of the City of Madison Common Council remain the same?
3. Madison alderpersons are currently elected to two (2) year terms. The Madison Mayor is currently elected to four (4) year terms. The City of Madison Task Force on Government Structure recommends that City of Madison alderpersons serve four (4) year terms, concurrent with the Mayor's term. Beginning with the 2023 Spring Election, SHOULD City of Madison alderpersons be elected to four (4) year terms?
4. Madison alderpersons are currently not subject to term limits. The Task Force on Government Structure recommends that if the City transitions to a full-time Common Council alderpersons should be subject to serving no more than twelve (12) consecutive years on the Common Council. Beginning with the 2023 Spring Election, if the City transitions to a full-time Common Council SHOULD the City of Madison alderpersons be subject to term limits of twelve (12) consecutive years?
The Task Force Implementation Workgroup consisting of alders, discussed whether there is enough time to adequately educate the public about the proposed questions due to the short time-frame between December 1, 2020 and the Spring 2021 election, they recommend the City place the questions on the ballot as advisory referendum questions on the Spring 2021 Election in order to gauge resident interest in the changes before deciding whether to place them on the 2022 Spring election ballot as binding referendum questions. The Council must pass a resolution by majority vote of all Council members authorizing that those questions be sent to the electorate and directing city staff to give notice of the referendum questions to the election clerk within 70 days of the Spring 2021 general election. There is also an alternate that recommends putting the above questions on the spring ballot as a binding resolution. Alternate resolution authorizing placement of a binding referendum

Agenda Note: The Finance Committee is meeting on 11/30/20 and a recommendation will be made from the floor.
Alder: The rezoning of this parcel to allow for temporary family shelter services generated a lot of public comments at the last Plan Commission and Council meetings. Alder Grant Foster and Alder Lindsay Lemmer have scheduled a neighborhood meeting December 15 to hear more details from the city and Salvation Army about the proposed operation of the site.
