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.
 
City Engineering Division has established Engineering Project No. 53W1319 - Goodman Path to construct the current phase, and the Office of Real Estate Services has established Master File Project No. 10099 to facilitate the acquisition of required easements to construct the necessary public improvements associated with the path.
 
The path will occupy lands currently owned by the City of Madison, lands currently owned by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, lands currently owned by the Town of Blooming Grove and easements to be acquired by the City of Madison.

Subsequent to the adoption of the relocation order on March 19, 2013 as Resolution No. RES-13-00195, File No. 28968, it has been determined that portions of the previously adopted relocation order requires amendment to facilitate the final design of the improvements to be constructed as part of Phase 1.
