Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 7.58.45 AMMichael B. sends information about an upcoming neighborhood meeting regarding the development proposal for the remainder of Madison, Wisconsin's Webster Street block (except for one lot adjacent to the Pahl Tire property) which directly affects Frank Lloyd Wright's Robert Lamp House (1903). More after the jump...

The proposal is by the Rouse Management company and would demolish four houses to build a 5-6 story apartment building. There is a neighborhood meeting about that proposal on May 15 at 7:00 pm at US Bank, 1 S. Pinckney (use E. Washington entrance). The meeting is open to anyone who is interested.

The Rouse proposal would go to the City Landmarks Commission because of its proximity to the landmarked Lamp House. Anyone concerned about the impact should send a letter to Amy Scanlon (ascanlon@cityofmadison.com ) with a request for the hotel proposal to go to the Landmarks Commission members. Letters could also be sent to the other City Committees that are likely to hold hearings would be the Urban Design Commission and the Plan Commission. There will be a representative of the City Planning Department at the neighborhood meetings who will provide details about the required approval steps. Additionally, the neighborhood will probably be forming a steering committee to work with the developers. Often such committees include interested stakeholders other than just neighborhood residents so anyone in the Madison area who cares about this development should consider joining that group.

Here's specific information about the Neighborhood Meeting where a proposal by the Alexander Company to demolish the Pahl Tire building at 202 E. Washington to construct a 151-room 10 story hotel will be presented. Hotel parking is anticipated to be through a shared agreement with the city for use of the city ramp.
