RELOCATION ORDER OF THE CITY OF MADISON, DANE COUNTY, WISCONSIN

PREAMBLE

On May 1, 2012 the City of Madison Common Council approved Resolution No. RES-12-00279, File No. 25399 which authorized the Mayor and City Clerk to gift and naming rights agreement with the Irwin A and Robert D. Goodman Foundation for construction of a multi-use (bicycle and pedestrian) path connecting the Capital City path at Marquette Street with the Marsh View Path at Highway 30.

This path has long been a priority component of the City’s planned bicycle network, and was formerly identified as the Starkweather East Branch Path. It will serve as an important component of the City’s non-motorized transportation network, providing a safe and direct route connecting large residential areas with the central downtown area and other destinations. The project consists of a combination of separate multi-use path and on-street bike route for a total corridor length of approximately 1.1 miles. The route generally follows the WisDOT-owned rail corridor and the East Branch of Starkweather Creek. This project is considered the first phase of a larger concept that will extend path in this corridor to east of I-39 and ultimately to the City of Sun Prairie.
