Title
Authorizing the execution of a Release of a Reservation for a Future Street as granted over Lot 2 of Certified Survey Map No. 555, now in the City of Fitchburg (adjacent to City of Madison District 14).

Body
The proposed resolution requests the release of the City of Madison’s interest in a 30-foot wide future roadway reservation, which Madison imposed on a Certified Survey Map recorded in 1971 for land located on the west side of Fish Hatchery Road north of Post Road. CSM 555 noting the reservation is attached, with the reservation highlighted in an orange box. The lands including the parcel with the reservation were detached from the City of Madison to the Town of Fitchburg per a 1975 agreement as noted below, after which, the land with the reservation became part of the City of Fitchburg upon its incorporation in 1983.

The City of Fitchburg has been approached about redevelopment of what is now known as Bowman Plaza and in turn has requested that the City of Madison release any interest and/ or right of enforcement it may have within the Reservation Area, which as noted is now wholly in the City of Fitchburg. Staff from City of Madison Planning Division, Engineering Division, and Department of Transportation have discussed the request and recommend that the City of Madison release our interest in the reservation. In addition to our releasing our interest, Fitchburg has signaled that they will release theirs by resolution prior to Fitchburg recording a release document with the Dane County Register of Deeds.
