Title

Amending Section 28.071(2)(a) of the Madison General Ordinances to amend the Downtown Height Map.

Body

DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:    This proposed amendment to the Downtown Height Map implements the viewshed preservation goal expressed in the 2014 Report of the Lamp House Block Ad Hoc Plan Committee, but does so using updated elevation data not available at the time the report was published.  That new data found the viewshed to be narrower than originally believed, resulting in the proposed amendment differing from original recommendation in the Lamp House report.

 

Staff has included a subarea map in the attachments to the Legistar file to zoom in on the downtown areas affected by this amendment.
