Read more about the most recent Lamp House development after the jump...

Michael reports:

"The Madison Common Council approved creation of the special committee for the Lamp House block at their meeting recently. I have yet to hear when the committee will begin its work. I have sent an email to the preservation planner to see if she can give me an update. In the meantime, here are the members of the committee:

Denise DeMarb -- freshman alder form an east side district.

Mike Verveer -- veteran alder from downtown district that does not include the Lamp House block.

David Mollenhoff – author of “Madison, a History of the Formative Years” and co-author with Mary Jane Hamilton of  “Wright’s Monona Terrace: The Enduring Power of a Civic Vision.” He has served on the Landmarks Commission and has some real estate holdings in central Madison.

Anna Andrzejewski – professor of Art History at UW-Madison with affiliations in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Center for Culture, History, and the Environment. She did a presentation about Marshall Erdman and “Wrightification” at the FLWBC Mason City conference.

William Gates -- neighborhood resident with a background in Computer Science including as Director of the Center for Demography.

Nan Fey --  former chair of the Madison Plan Commission. The new Downtown Plan and Zoning Code were adopted during her tenure.

Henry Lufler – member of the Urban Design Commission. He is the retired director of UW- Madison's Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education.

Rich Arneson – vice president of Stone House Development, Inc., a real estate development and consulting firm Based in Madison, Wisconsin specializing in Section 42 and Historic Tax Credit multi-family projects.

They will be supported by a staffer form the planing department, perhaps the preservation planner."

Thanks for the update, Michael. Hopefully this committee will recommend a course of action that will preserve and protect this important Wright landmark.
