Body

WHEREAS, the City is the owner of the parcel of land located between West Main Street and West Doty Street that was formerly railroad right-of-way and was acquired by the City for transportation purposes (the “City Parcel”); and

 

WHEREAS, Madison Mutual Housing Association, Inc. (the “Lessee”) is the owner of certain property located at 641 West Main Street (the “Abutting Property”) which is adjacent to the City Parcel; and

 

WHEREAS, the City and the Lessee were parties to a certain prior lease (the “Prior Lease”) whereby the Lessee leased a portion of the City Parcel from the City; and

 

WHEREAS, due to the City’s need to utilize a portion of the City Parcel for the construction and operation of a public pedestrian and bicycle path (the “Path”), the Prior Lease was terminated by the City effective as of December 31, 2004; and

 

WHEREAS, the City completed construction of the Path in 2005 over a portion of the City Parcel; and

 

WHEREAS, the Lessee has remained in occupancy of the leased area as a month-to-month holdover tenant; and

 

WHEREAS, the Lessee desires to continue to occupy and use the leased area and the terms of a new lease have been negotiated between the Lessee and City of Madison Office of Real Estate Services staff.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Mayor and City Clerk are authorized to execute a lease (“Lease”) with Madison Mutual Housing Association, Inc. (the “Lessee”) allowing for the use of a portion of the “City Parcel,” which is described in attached Exhibit A subject to the following terms and conditions:

 

1.                     Leased Premises.  The City shall lease to the Lessee that portion of the City Parcel identified on the attached Exhibit (the “Leased Premises”). The Leased Premises are improved with asphalt pavement. The Lessee has inspected and accepts the Leased Premises in an “as-is” condition.

                     

2.                     Term.  The Lease shall be for a term of ten (10) years (“Initial Lease Term”), subject to early termination pursuant to terms of the Lease. The effective date of the Lease shall be June 1, 2015 (“Effective Date”) and the Lease shall expire on May 31, 2025. The term “Lease Year” shall mean a full one (1) year period. The first Lease Year shall begin on the Effective Date. Each succeeding Lease Year shall begin on the anniversary of the Effective Date.

 

3.                     Rent.  The Lessee shall pay to the City an annual rent payment of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000). The initial annual rent payment shall be due upon execution of the Lease and subsequent rent payments shall be due on or before each anniversary of the Effective Date. The annual rent payment shall increase by three percent (3%) per year compounded annually effective as of each anniversary of the Effective Date.

 

4.                     Renewal.  The Lease may be renewed upon the agreement of the Lessee and the City for one five (5)-year term, unless terminated in accordance with Paragraph 21 of the Lease. The Lessee shall provide the City written notice of its request to renew the Lease no later than six (6) months prior to the expiration of the Initial Lease Term. The City shall provide its approval or denial of such renewal request within thirty (30) days of receipt of said request, which approval or denial shall be at the City’s sole discretion.

 

5.                     Use and Restrictions on Use of Leased Premises.  Throughout the term of the Lease and any extension thereof, the Leased Premises shall be used only for driveways, placement of a storage shed and dumpsters at locations approved by the City, resident and visitor parking, and landscaping purposes.

Furthermore, foreclosure of any such mortgage, pledge or encumbrance shall also be a Transfer permitted hereunder, subject to the restriction that this leasehold interest shall not be severed from the ownership of the Abutting Property.  All such Transfers shall be subject to all of the terms of this Lease, and all applicable statutes, laws and ordinances.  Any purchaser or transferee of all of the Lessee’s right, title and interest in and to this Lease shall be considered as having assumed and become bound by all of such Lessee’s obligations hereunder, and shall take the Lease subject to all prior breaches and shall be liable therefor in the same manner as such Lessee or prior transferee.

If the coverage required above expires while this Lease is in effect, Lessee shall provide a renewal certificate to the City for approval.

 

16.                     The Lessee represents and warrants that its use of the Leased Premises will not generate any hazardous substance, and it will not store or dispose on the Leased Premises nor transport to or over the Leased Premises any hazardous substance in violation of any applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or rule.
