  • What business leaders say

    Here’s what community and business leaders are saying about Madison College’s South Campus Initiative

    Bill Westrate, President, American Family Insurance
    “For 90 years American Family Insurance has been committed to inspiring, protecting and restoring the dreams of those in the communities where we live, work and do business. Our $1.3 million gift today, the largest single gift to-date from the American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation, Inc., demonstrates our belief in the importance of the Madison College South Campus project and the transformational benefits it will bring to future students, South Madison and the entire community. We believe in the power of dreams, and that with the right support, any dream is possible. We’re proud to be part of this important project.”

    Zach Brandon, President, Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce
    “The Madison College South Campus represents a critical investment and an important step toward driving equity, retaining talent in our region and building an advanced economy that works for everyone. Our economy is moving rapidly, and this opportunity will ensure success in the next wave of the economy. Greater Madison is positioned to be a laboratory for change, and this campus will be part of that laboratory.”

    Floyd Rose, 100 Black Men
    “The Madison neighborhoods deemed to have significant barriers to opportunity are also neighborhoods with high concentrations of poverty. Two of the most acute low-opportunity neighborhoods in our community are in south Madison and southwest Madison. Given that employment is the fundamental pathway from poverty, Madison College is, without equal, the most effective means of empowerment in south Madison and southwest Madison. For more than 100 years, Madison College has strove to provide transformational, affordable and accessible educational opportunity to all. Madison College is logically the greatest channel for sustainable economic and comprehensive social well-being in south Madison and southwest Madison.”

    Renee Moe, President & CEO, United Way of Dane County
    “United Way is proud to partner with Madison College as they prepare their new facility to help meet the needs of our community. This new facility will help address the social, racial and economic disparities we see in Dane County, allowing individuals and families to become more financially stable. We thank Madison College for making a college education more accessible, as education is one of the essential building blocks to a stable life. We’re especially glad to know Madison College is siting their location close to other community-based services, making it easy for students to access.”

    Jeff Burkhardt, Executive Director, Literacy Network of Dane County
    “Over the last several years, Madison College and Literacy Network have developed a partnership in which Literacy Network tutors and interns provide support to Madison College students. Our data show that Academic Tutoring students score 42% higher than peers during post-testing and attend 56% more class hours than peers. Sergette has improved her reading, pronunciation and essay structure. She has plans to research nursing programs in fall. Hari has enrolled in English pre-requisites for the Caminos CNA partnership between Centro Hispano and Madison College. After Eltha finishes her GED, she’d like to enroll in the accounting program at Madison College. Phillip learned about decimals, fractions and word problems. This semester he made huge strides in increasing his confidence toward completing his HSED. Carlos is building skills that will help him in his long-term goal of studying biomedical sciences. Leticia is studying for her HSED and has made great progress in math. She is able to use this new knowledge with customers at her job. We look forward to expanding our partnership with Madison College this fall and well into the future as the college establishes a greater presence in South Madison.”

    Michael Johnson, CEO, Boys & Girls Club of Dane County
    “I am excited to hear about this news and what this means for our entire city. I am thankful that Madison College and several donors are making such a huge commitment and investment in South Madison. I am thrilled that the new campus will be off the belt line, next to the transfer point and connected to several marginalized communities who will need this campus for lifelong learning and engagement. Boys & Girls Clubs applauds Dr. Daniels, his board and leadership team for making this happen so current and future students will have a place to learn and grow.”

    Karen Menendez-Coller, Executive Director, Centro Hispano of Dane County
    “I am thrilled to hear about the direction of the new campus. So many of our Centro families already rely on the college to be their bridge for their higher education. With the expansion of the South Madison Campus, Madison College has now reaffirmed its commitment to higher education for communities of color. The new campus will become a strong anchor on the South side for the work of so many non-profits. At Centro we are incredibly proud of our existing partnerships with the College through both our youth and adult programs. We now look forward to collaborating even more closely with Madison College in South Madison.”

    Tony Evers, State Superintendent of Public Instruction
    “Expanding the Madison College South Campus to offer additional STEM and IT offerings presents an exciting opportunity for the students of Madison and the surrounding area. It’s a positive step toward advancing educational equity and demonstrates the community, K-12, and higher education partnerships that are necessary to make this work a success.”

    Ruben Anthony, Ph.D., President & CEO, Urban League of Greater Madison
    “On behalf of the Urban League of Greater Madison, I am excited to endorse the plan by Madison College to locate an expanded campus in South Madison at the Employee Trust Fund (ETF) site. Over the last two years, I have participated in multiple community input session about Madison College’s facility plans, and repeatedly heard strong pleas from residents for an expanded campus in South Madison. I am pleased to hear that Madison College heard this feedback, and responded with this exciting plan.

    Like Madison College, the Urban League shares a strong commitment to ensuring access to higher education – in particular access for citizens from diverse racial and socioeconomic backgrounds who lack access or face other barriers to educational opportunity. The Urban League has long partnered with Madison College on a wide range of programs and projects such as education and career development for our youth, workforce training programs for low-income adults, and other community engagement and empowerment initiatives. The Urban League stands ready to bolster our collaboration with Madison College, and make this campus an innovative model for higher education that fosters lifelong learning and success among some of our community’s most vulnerable residents.”

    Greg Jones, President, NAACP Dane County
    “The NAACP believes that every person will have an equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and security. And every person will have a chance to live the American Dream.

    We understand the realities facing our country and this community including poverty, lack of jobs and disproportionate high unemployment in communities of color.

    And will work to ensure that government and industry are knowledgeable, and committed to bridging racial inequality particularly as it relates to employment, wealth, lending, and business ownership.

    The South Madison Campus Initiative is a visionary and bold approach that responds to barriers of access and open pathways to opportunity, spur economic development, and create an aspiring community that now strives for higher education.

    The NAACP Dane County commends the Madison College Board of Trustees and President Jack Daniels III for their sustained leadership during the initial phases that brought the community to this moment. We will continue to be engaged to the end-point that provides  greater opportunity for South Madison and surrounding communities.”

    ‘Full throttle’: Madison College’s new South Campus groundbreaking set for June
    Additional $2 million gift, offer to extend matching challenge set pace for fall 2019 opening

    MADISON, Wis.—During a community forum today, officials from Madison College affirmed that construction of all phases of its new South Campus will begin in June and be completed in time to hold classes and community meetings there in fall 2019.

    Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation & Affiliates, which gave a $3 million cash gift and issued a $3.5 million matching challenge last October, has restructured its contribution in the amount up to $10.2 million to ensure the new South Campus will be completed in a single phase.

    Previous multi-million dollar gifts have been received from the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Foundation, which contributed $10 million, and the American Family Dreams Foundation, $1.3 million.

    Madison College’s Executive Vice President and Chief Student Services Officer Keith Cornille said these developments will ensure the entire project will be constructed in its entirety. Earlier plans called for construction to occur in three phases.

    “Thanks to the benevolence of Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation and Affiliates, the plans envisioned by Madison College and members of the south Madison community for a new South Campus are proceeding at full throttle,” Cornille said. “This campus will forever change the face of South Madison and transform the lives of those who live there.”

    Cornille said Great Lakes made the decision to contribute the additional funds and offered to extend the matching challenge to ensure the campus will be built in its entirety. “Our fundraising efforts have built considerable momentum. Great Lakes recognized that,” Cornille said, adding the college will continue to solicit donations to the project until the facility is open. “We’ll continue to engage in conversations with benefactors who understand the tremendous benefits a new South Campus will deliver to our community,” Cornille said.

    Madison College’s new South Campus on fast track for completion $3 million donation, $3.5 million challenge grant accelerate construction of entire complex

    MADISON, Wis.—During a joint news conference today, officials from Madison College and Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation (community.mygreatlakes.org) and affiliates placed the construction of the college’s new South Campus in its entirety on the fast track by sharing details of a contribution to complete the second phase of the project, and issuing challenge grant for the third and final phase.

    At an Aug. 28 news conference, Madison College President Jack Daniels spoke of a two-phase project which would be completed in fall 2019. Phase One would be funded by a $10 million donation from the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Foundation, and $1.5 million from the American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation. Phase one, with 38,000 usable square feet, will house learning spaces, limited support and wrap-around student services.

    At that time, Daniels acknowledged that additional donations would be required to build the entire facility. In presentations to other community organizations, he did not commit to a timeline, saying the schedule for the remaining facilities would be determined when funds are in hand.

    Today, the project was introduced in three phases. The first, as previously noted, includes purchase of the site currently occupied by the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds at the intersection of Badger Road and Park Street and will include spaces for learning and some student services. Phase Two will increase the usable space to up to 45,000 square feet and include community meeting spaces, additional classrooms and support services. Phase Three will expand the complex to a total approaching 75,000 square feet and include a comprehensive suite of student services, community access to social service and community-based organizations, and additional classrooms and community meeting spaces.

    Richard D. George, president and CEO of Great Lakes, said his organization is committing $3 million to construct the second phase of the project and announced a $3.5 matching grant to complete the final phase. With this challenge grant, Great Lakes is looking to engage the community in completing the project. If Madison College successfully raises $3.5 million before March 31, 2018, Great Lakes will match that amount dollar for dollar and assure the campus will be completed in its entirety in 2019.

    “For 50 years, Great Lakes has been dedicated to making college education a reality for our nation’s most atrisk students: students of color, students from low-income homes and students who are first in their families to attend college,” George said. “Traditionally these students have the most to gain from a postsecondary education but face the greatest impediments in getting there. Locally, these challenges are most acute on Madison’s south side.

    “It’s clear from every angle that the new South Campus addresses many barriers residents of that area have faced for too long. There are countless individuals who have the drive and potential to attend college, and by creating a new campus that is accessible, provides robust support services and offers degree options with high market value, we can affect great change,” George said. “The new campus has the potential to provide incredible opportunities for today’s students and inspire generations of future students – which is why Great Lakes is fully funding the second phase of this project.”

    While the success of students who will attend Madison College’s South Campus is important, George is quick to acknowledge the benefits of the project to the community at large, including the presence of independent social service organizations, and spaces where community members can gather for meetings and other activities.

    He says the $3.5 million challenge grant places the project, in its entirety, on the fast track for completion. “The need for a new South Campus for Madison College has been abundantly established.” George said. “Completing all three phases concurrently will ensure its impact on the south side of Madison, our community and southcentral Wisconsin will be significant and immediate. I look forward to the greater Madison community rising to meet this challenge.”

    Madison College announces new South Campus location Goodman and American Family foundations to fund Phase One of two-phase initiative

    MADISON, Wis.—Officials from Madison College revealed the location of their new South Madison campus at a news conference today. After a search of nearly one year, facilities planners for the college say the site currently occupied by the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds at the intersection of Badger Road and Park Street best suits the needs for serving students and the South Madison community.

    The college also announced $11.3 million in contributions from the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Foundation and the American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation to cover costs associated with Phase One of the South Campus Initiative.

    The first phase includes the purchase of property, redevelopment of property to include spaces for learning and student support, and the availability of space for community activities. This facility will also include instructional programs in STEM- and IT-related fields that will be accessible to high school juniors and seniors, in particular those in the Madison Metropolitan School District. The second phase of the development will consist of an expansion of the facility to include enhanced services, additional classrooms and community space.

    When it is completed in 2019, the college’s new south side campus “will allow us to join forces with our community partners to address significant racial, economic and educational disparities that exist on the south side and stimulate economic development in this part of the city,” said Madison College President Jack Daniels.

    “Madison College’s South Campus Initiative will address, head on, vast racial disparities that exist on the South Side,” Daniels said, “and provide access to higher education for individuals who have been historically marginalized but are capable of completing college if they only had the chance.”

    Daniels noted that residents of Madison are consistently ranked among the most educated in the nation. The city is ranked the fifth most highly-educated in the U.S. by the New York Times. In contrast, 57.8 percent* of the residents of Madison’s South Side – far more than half the population – do not have a college credential. Nearly 15 percent do not hold a high school diploma.

    “This disparity is not acceptable,” Daniels said. “The South Campus Initiative is not only our opportunity to change that, it is our obligation.”

    Jennifer Cheatham, superintendent of the Madison Metropolitan School District, also shared details of a partnership that will allow high school students enrolled in the MMSD to complete STEM-related coursework at the South Campus and earn college credits. The intent of the early college STEM academy is to create a transition option that prepares high school students for a smooth transition to college and career.

    The Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Foundation will contribute $10 million and the American Family Insurance Dreams foundation will award $1.3 million to fund Phase One of the South Campus Initiative. The gifts represent the largest ever awarded by each of the Madison-based foundations.

    Funds are in place for the first phase of the new South Campus, and the college will seek additional funding to complete Phase Two, which will which will consist of an expansion of the complex to include enhanced services, additional classrooms and community space.

    Through seven listening sessions with more than 120 South Side community members and leaders of faith- and community-based organizations, Daniels said a recurring theme emerged: The need for a central meeting place, whether or not the residents there are students at Madison College. “The need has been presented. Now it is time for Madison College, and our community, to address it.”

    • Discuss the meaning behind the college coming to the South Side and relate it to the historical context of the area.

    • Hold mini-college fairs/presentations at nearby community organizations hosted by someone who can speak to all opportunities at Madison College, not just one program.

    Community Insights from Individual Interviews:

    • The South Madison corridor has a huge potential for growth.
    • South Madison feels much safer and more stable in the past few years.
    • Working to solve issues with student retention would be beneficial to the community.
    • Bringing community members from other parts of the city to the South side could help facilitate some cross cultural relationship building in Madison.
    • The South side is lacking a community center. Including community space in the new campus would benefit the community.
    • Free and open community space is in high demand and would be well used if provided at the new South Campus.
    • Buildings are tending toward fewer points of entry for safety and staff purposes (requires fewer greeters).
    • African American religious leaders are often a source of advice for post-high school professional/academic advice and it would be helpful for them to have a contact at Madison College they could point students to.
    • Important to pull in the whole family at orientations so that everyone learns about the college process.
    • Engaging the families of first generation students would help them to be more successful.
    • Use services open to the community to attract potential students and their families to the campus and then as a way to reach out to them.
    • Many community members assume they can’t go to school because of financial barriers, but don’t know the true cost of completing a program or what financial aid is available them.
    • Case management is often crucial for students to think about continuing their education. Adult learners at lower levels need individualized support.
    • There used to be a Madison College staff person/counselor that spent time at community centers building relationships with kids and introducing them to the school. It was helpful having a specific contact to reach out to.
    • There are a large amount of people without GED’s in the area so introductory courses and adult education would be very helpful at this campus.
    • It would be appealing to potential students from the area to have staff that looks like them/reflects their diversity.
    • Latino/Spanish-speaking students are hungry to get an official paper from an institution in the U.S. and would appreciate a greater variety of programs/certificates to choose from.
    • The Hmong community in Madison is very young (47% under 18 years old). It would be worth creating a pipeline to Madison College from this community.
    • Madison College should be aware of the racial politics in Madison. Black, Hmong, and Latino communities often tend to position themselves against each other.
    • People will know that efforts toward inclusivity are genuine if they see that reflected in Madison College leadership.
    • One educational organization has a staff member accompany their students when they go into Madison College for the first time to help them feel less intimidated.
    • Madison College has rebranded themselves but has not remarketed themselves, especially to the African American community.
    • Some students did not feel proud of the DTEC facility. Sentiments toward the new campus will have a lot to do with the actual building.
    • Issues with transportation to and between campuses is a barrier preventing attendance and enrollment.
    • Don’t assume that potential students will seek out the school. The message from Madison College should be “we want to help you” not “if you want to learn, then come”.
    • It’s important to connect with juniors and seniors while they are still in high school. It becomes hard to systematically get in contact with young people once they graduate.
    • It is difficult to get community members to cross the Beltine for events and services. There are bike connections but they are not used as much as one might think. Metro is definitely the biggest connection.
    • Online or technology-based outreach is not successful in gathering input from a diverse mix of community members in South Madison. Results from door to door, on the ground approaches better reflect the makeup of the community.
    • Concern that Madison College providing many services/playing many roles in the community might take away from their core business; education.
    • Evening programs are critical for working students.
    • Industry/trades in South Madison are dying for help; there are not enough trained workers in then pipeline.
    • Ensure that services provided are culturally relevant so that they are taken advantage of, for example, understanding that some students wouldn’t want to get mental health services down the hall from where they register for classes.
    • Bridge programs are helpful but community members were initially confused about how they worked
    • People often cannot commit to a 2+ year program and would benefit from shorter programs/certificates.
    • Madison College should also be a resource for community members in the suburbs surrounding Madison which also face equity issues.
    • Madison College will likely face scrutiny over their ability to connect to and hire from within the community.
    • Expectations are set very high for local organizations challenging the system.
    • Community members and people who work on the ground in South Madison are excited by this campus, want it to happen, and will step up to the plate if called upon.
    • Many community members will automatically dismiss messaging from higher education institutions, so some recruitment efforts have to be in the form of South Side residents engaging with other South Side residents.
    • Madison College has a lot of support from minority leaders in the community.
    • There is a shortage of people who know how to code in the U.S. Many companies currently outsource a lot of their IT but would like to bring it back in house.
    • The workforce for utility companies is typically very white because much of the coursework/training for these jobs happens at rural tech colleges.
    • Many in the business community questioned the value of investing in the new campus. The broad benefits need to be articulated to the city and county.
    • Community members are concerned about gentrification and will be actively waiting to see how reflective the campus is of the community.

    27 Gym, fitness and program/meeting facilities for the community. This is SORELY lacking for Madison's South Side. The North Side has the Warner Park Community Center. East Side has YMCA, Wil-Mar and Goodman community centers. West Side has Lussier Community Center, YMCA, Little League baseball park, ice rink, two swim clubs, etc etc. There is NO EQUIVALENT community center space on the South Side. Boys & Girls Club has a facility, but that is only for kids and non-African Americans feel excluded there. Catholic Multicultural Center is not that multicultural. It serves a certain segment of Madison's population. Badger Rock has a nice facility but very little public programming. The existing services these institutions provide are great for the populations they are focused on -- BUT we need something like the Goodman Community Center that welcomes and draws ALL races, ages and income levels with diverse programming, meeting space, a gym and adult fitness facilities. Madison College's new South Side campus has ENORMOUS POTENTIAL for that !! Please bring a community center to this part of town as part of your mission. We are a very ethnically and economically diverse neighborhood and I love that about South Madison. It is why I chose to raise my family here. What better way to foster and grow that diversity and potential than to bring the community together through the kind of fitness and personal enrichment activities a community center can provide? Please, Madison College, we need you!!! - 6/6/2017 11:53 PM

    28 Please see previous note about programming and gym/fitness facilities needed. Also, if you have bicycle parking, there needs to be a safe way to access the campus via bike. Right now there is no safe way to access South Madison by bike, especially with children and young people. I have tried. It is death-defying and terrifying to bike down Park Street and Fish Hatchery Road. 6/7/2017 12:01 AM

    7 Fresh air in the building. 7/20/2017 3:04 PM
    8 Students at this campus deserve all the 'nice-ities' of students at any other campus, but all focuses should be far more concerned with what is offered in the facilities than terazzo and fountains! 7/20/2017 9:42 AM
    9 Family friendly areas 7/19/2017 1:21 AM
    10 A human being to answer questions. Less reliance on the computer for primary access to programs 7/18/2017 9:50 AM
    11 Care should be taken to identify layout and design that is not intimadating to those who have struggled in educational and institutional settings 7/17/2017 1:46 PM
    12 User friendly entrances, clear access, help to answer questions. I say this because Truax is too intimidating and too confusing. 7/17/2017 12:23 PM
    13 Friendly and knowledgeable staff (as there are now) 7/13/2017 2:03 PM
    14 I think the building should implement culture in regards to art, historical art for the demographics it will serve 7/9/2017 11:33 AM
    15 Having study/social areas with coffee and snack vendors has been nice, at Truax campus 7/3/2017 9:34 AM

    17 Room or space for meditation 6/21/2017 1:09 PM
    18 Natural setting/campus look, exterior/architectural design 6/19/2017 11:54 AM
    19 Signange in multiple languages should also include indigenous languages (Ho-Chunk being the top priority, Ojibwe, Menominee, Oneida too) 6/13/2017 3:51 PM
    20 Don't build it; focus on your existing facilities instead. 6/7/2017 7:19 AM
    21 Once again -- a gym and fitness facilities. One way to bridge racial gaps is to bring people together through sport and other activities. Look at youth sports activities on the Near West and West Sides of Madison -- they are INCREDIBLY segregated. Madison College has a chance to bring people together through fitness and gym programs (youth basketball, women's fitness, etc.) that bring races together. Private-pay opportunities exist but they are beyond the means of many families and their racial diversity is close to zero. This is something I witness every day with my son, who is black, and plays on all-white basketball teams, baseball teams, hockey teams, etc. The segregation in extra-curriculars for youths in Madison is utterly shocking and very dismaying. MATC can help that and foster friendships between people in the community just by getting them together to sweat and have fun! 6/7/2017 12:01 AM
    22 Don't make it like some hotel where everything is so neat you can't touch it. Put in kiosks and bulletin boards that anybody can put up anything -- big ideas, free speech! places that can get messy with papers that don't need a stamp on them for permission. And don't put up a lot of store bought boring pretty art. Put up lots of student art and get some community people to put up their art adn change it regularly. Make one wall graffiti art that changes every month or year. Make it feel like you are in the city not a mall in the suburbs. 6/5/2017 9:56 PM
    23 would want things to look nice, last a long time, but do not need to be expensive 6/5/2017 6:03 PM

Integration is important, don't make south a school only for minorities. Work with Madison and get bus routes that run from south to truax directly on the half hour. Since you do not ask for comments at the end I will comment here. To ask about classroom configuration without knowing what is being taught is a useless question. Am I learning foundational knowledge, applied knowledge or psychomotor knowledge? We need to everything we can to build language skills and basic literacy skills so everyone on the south side is able to fully participate in any program at MATC. We set them up to fail otherwise. Imagine entering a respiratory therapy class confident about language (not afraid to speak), math and writing skills! Now they can be self directed learners and succeed on the first try in any program. 7/26/2017 7:47 PM

    263 Facility Programs Recruitment Services 1. Campus Security. This area draws a lot of negative attention. It would be nice educate the community surrounding the school, and perhaps get law enforcement in the area more comfortable with the community, in an effort to deter crime. 2. More focus should be made to help students find attractive careers. By that I mean educating students on what jobs are out there, what anticipated levels of income or stress might be for each job, and a better idea of the long term education that will be required. Everyone gets out of highschool thinking there are only a few jobs to choose from - doctor, lawyer, police, IT, business - and then there are the "creative" jobs like writing and the arts, which get a lot of attention, but ultimately have less jobs or income opportunities available. Now that I work with Affirmative Action in my current position, I see that there are immediate jobs available for women and minorities in particular, but none of them are in the "default careers". We need wetland specialists for the transportation industry, roundabout designers for road design, welding technicians, and a few other positions that can never be filled because no one is choosing those paths of education. I would guess that they do not know they even exist, and as far as I'm aware, they are all fields that are taught at Madison College in some capacity. An entire one semester course for freshman, or GED/highschool students, is desperately needed to help guide these students on how to choose courses and programs in the first place. As a former student, and a friend to many who are just now graduating highschool, the most common theme is to take Liberal Arts because they simply don't know what else to do. They want a good future, and to go to school, but end up wasting time and financial aid switching programs because their instinct is to choose a field that they "are good at" and that doesn't always end up working out. Any student can be trained in anything, they just need to know the field is available and how much money they could potentially make doing it compared to the stress level the job might ultimately employee. 6/12/2017 2:31 PM

I can't emphasize this enough. I was very disappointed by the advising when I went to Truax compared to UW Milwaukee and UW Madison.

Offer fitness/gym/programming to families and adults in South Madison, not only to enrich people's lives to but to take baby steps toward diversity. The racial segregation in recreational and fitness activities (including youth soccer, basketball, adult aerobics, etc.) is utterly shocking. No wonder there is an achievement gap in schools -- just go to any Saturday youth sports event and look at the team's racial and economic make-up and parent involvement. It is very eye-opening. 6/7/2017 12:05 AM

    298 Community Facility Recruitment Services Staff You have to ask the neighbors. Actually, send people out and go door to door and listen to them; let them tell you what they want, and then put that in the school. A good neighbor isn't just going to be quiet and leave you alone. A good neighbor is going to help you when you need it. Good neighbors are going to watch out for each other. Good neighbors are going to share. Good neighbors offer you food if they are eating in the front yard. You don't have to walk a half mile up a driveway to see if someone is home. They are right there inside the door to say hello. Make the place open so people can walk in and around and explore, instead of feeling like they are being stared at or followed. Give people a reason to go in, like having a real library with a kids section and dvds and computers they can use -- Madison College is a public school, right? not private club. And have a really good place to eat; could be a cheap Mexican restaurant (get a real restaurant, not one that brings in food in a giant frozen Cisco truck.) Make it nice for kids -- if they trust you with their kids, the parents think you are a good neighbor. That includes teenagers who are going to check it out for years before they go there. Put in a free merry go round. Don't have a lot of guards and uniformed people prowling around. Madison College could actually hire people in the neighborhood who could walk to work there. And pay them enough that they would stay, even if they were janitors. Build a lot of nice apartments next door that would be nice enough that teachers and staff would want to live there, but there would still be plenty cheap enough for people in the neighborhood. 6/5/2017 10:53 PM

  • The Draft Environmental Impact Statement

    ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR MADISON COLLEGE PROPOSED SOUTH CAMPUS

    801 W BADGER ROAD, MADISON WI
    November 15, 2017

    ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT PROCESS SUMMARY

    The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process followed for this project is completed under the requirements of Chapter TCS 12, State Stats. concerning Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act (WEPA) procedures within the Wisconsin Technical College System.  This purpose of this statute is to do the following:

    • Establish procedures for board consideration of short-term and long-term environmental and economic effects of board actions upon the human environment.
    • Establish definitions and criteria to be used by the board for implementation that includes the evaluation of proposed actions; the study, development and description of alternatives where proposed actions involve unresolved conflicts in the use of available resources; and the preparation and review of EIS.
    • Provide guidance to districts seeking permission to proceed with the proposed action, determine the applicable procedures affecting the board’s review of a proposal, and establish a mechanism for early review of an applicant’s proposal to determine the need for an EIS.
    • Identify major actions significantly affecting the quality of human environment and the need for an EIS.
    • Provide an opportunity for the public input in decision-making process.
       

    SUMMARY OF FINDINGS AND SCOPING PROCESS

    Madison Area Technical College (Madison College) is proposing the construction of a new South Campus at the property located at 801 W Badger Road, in the City of Madison, Wisconsin.  The property is currently occupied by a 51,000-square foot commercial structure constructed in the mid-1950s.  This structure will be demolished and replaced with the newly constructed Madison College South Campus.  The newly constructed facility will:

    • Provide services to Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) to provide STEM and IT related fields that will be accessible to high school juniors and seniors, providing college credits.
    • Join forces with community partners to address significant racial, economic and education disparities that exist on the south side of Madison.
    • Stimulate economic development in this part of the city by providing education and job training.
    • Provide access to higher education for individuals who have been historically marginalized, but are capable of completing college, given the opportunity.
    • 57.8 percent of residents from Madison’s south side do not have college credentials.
       

    The alternatives evaluated were the proposed Madison College South Campus facility and the "No Action" alternative.  No conflicts concerning alternative uses of available resources have been identified with the proposed Madison College South Campus facility.  Therefore, the range of alternatives were limited to the No Action alternative and the proposed action alternative. The No Action alternative was rejected by Madison College because it would not satisfy the purpose of the proposed action to meet the need for the residents of the south side of Madison.

    The proposed action would have short-term environmental effects related to construction activities. These would primarily be associated with an increase in traffic flow, increased noise levels, air quality impacts from dust and equipment exhaust, and the potential for soil erosion and storm water quality impacts. Overall, impacts associated with construction activities would be temporary and are not expected to alter the long-term productivity of the natural environment.

    Table 1 presents a summary of the environmental, social and cultural, and economic impacts of the proposed action to the surrounding area.  In addition, the table provides a summary discussion of the planned mitigation measures to reduce the negative impacts caused during the construction and operation of the proposed addition.


    Table 1 - Summary of Environmental, Social, Cultural, and Economic Impacts and Mitigation Measures

    Potential Impact: Soils and Groundwater/Storm water

    Source/Discussion: Short-term soil erosion could result from construction activities.
    Groundwater is not anticipated to be encountered during construction or impacted after construction.

    Mitigation Measures: During construction, contractors would follow approved erosion and sediment control technical standards required by the WDNR in accordance with Chapters NR 151 and NR 216 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code.

    Potential Impact: Air Quality

    Source/Discussion: Air quality impacts could result from dust and equipment exhaust during construction. Air quality impacts are not anticipated once construction is completed.

    Source/Discussion: A former fuel oil storage tank was removed from the property in 1993. Some soil contamination may remain in place in the area of the storage tank (northwest of the existing building).
    An unreported leak of approximately 40-50 gallons of hydraulic fluid was identified during the Phase I ESA. A Phase II ESA was performed, and analytical samples were collected. Analytical results indicated low levels of PAHs in two of the soil samples. WDNR prepared correspondence indicating No Further Action was necessary.

    Mitigation Measures: During construction activities, it is possible that petroleum affected soils may be encountered. If encountered, proper handling of the affected soils must be conducted.

    Potential Impact: Wetlands

    Source/Discussion: A wetland delineation is currently being conducted. As of this date, the report has not been completed.

    Mitigation Measures: No mitigation.

    Potential Impact: Land Disturbance

    Source/Discussion: The existing 51,000-square foot structure will be demolished, and debris will be hauled off-site. Grading and land disturbance will be performed during the construction of the new facility

    Mitigation Measures: Proper Erosion Control and Sediment plans will be prepared.

    Potential Impact: Aesthetics

    Source/Discussion: Aesthetics of the site would change with the demolition of the existing structure and the construction of the new campus.

    Mitigation Measures: No Mitigation.

    Potential Impact: Biological

    Source/Discussion: The proposed project currently consists of a commercial structure surrounded by parking and man-made landscaped areas, primarily consisting of mowed grass. The property does not offer quality habitat for wildlife.

    Mitigation Measures: No Mitigation.

    Potential Impact: Social and Cultural

    Source/Discussion: The proposed New Madison South Campus would provide education opportunities to the population of south Madison, and would address significant racial, economic and educational disparities that exist on the south side of Madison.

    Mitigation Measures: No Mitigation.

    Potential Impact: Economics

    Source/Discussion: The project will result in short-term increase in employment related to construction.
    Providing education and job training to the population on the south side of Madison will increase job growth and economic development.

    Mitigation Measures: No Mitigation.


    Scoping Process

    A scoping meeting for the proposed project was held on October 10, 2017 at the Madison College South Campus, Classroom SM 111. A Public Notice was published in the State Journal prior to the meeting. In addition, a notice was posted at the Madison Public Library, located at 2222 S. Park Street, Madison, Wisconsin.

    1.0 INTRODUCTION AND DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED ACTION

    This Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) has been prepared by General Engineering Company (GEC) to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the demolition of a 51,000-square foot commercial office building, owned by the State of Wisconsin Employee Trust Funds; and the construction of a new Madison College South Campus. The property is an approximate 4.35 acre developed parcel of land (Parcel Number 251/0709-353-0091-6), located at 801 West Badger Road, in the City of Madison, Wisconsin.

    The Madison College South Campus is expected to be constructed in two phases. The first phase is anticipated to consist of 45,000-square feet of community meeting spaces, classrooms and support services. The second phase two construction is anticipated to include approximately 30,000-square feet of building that will consist of comprehensive suites of student services, community access to social service and community-based organizations, and additional classrooms and community meeting spaces.

    Since this project would result in significant alterations to the property, the Madison Area Technical College (Madison College) board deems this activity to be a Type 1 action based on the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act Procedure, Chapter TCS 12 – Table 12.03. Actions that significantly affect the quality of the physical, biological, social, cultural and economic environment require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The findings of this EIS are discussed herein.

    1.1 Background Information

    Madison Area Technical College (Madison College), serves more than 36,000 students throughout a 12-county district in south-central Wisconsin, offering more than 150 diverse career programs and certificates. Through construction of this new 75,000-square foot campus, the Madison College South Campus aims to provide the following:

    • Open a new South campus that meets the needs of the South Madison Community.
    • Increase access of South Madison residents to Madison College.
    • Work with community leaders to better access education and training gaps.
    • Offer affordable programs and classes that fill those gaps.
       

    1.2 Existing Facility

    The proposed project location is currently occupied by Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds located at 801 W Badger Road, in the City of Madison, Wisconsin. The property is located at the southwest intersection of W Badger Road and S. Park Street, in the southern portion of the City of Madison. The development of the surrounding properties is primarily commercial and residential properties. The property is located within the northeast ¼ of the southwest ¼ of Section 35, Township 7 North, Range 9 East of Dane County, Wisconsin.

    The subject property is currently developed with a two-story structure with a basement, which is currently occupied by a commercial office building utilized as Wisconsin Employee Trust Funds. The building is located on the east-central portion of the property. The existing building is a block/poured concrete foundation and metal-framed building, approximately 51,000 square feet in size. The basement is exposed on the east and south ends of the structure. A loading dock is located on the southern portion of the building, which provides direct access to the basement. Paved parking lots are located to the west/southwest and north of the structure.

    The property is bordered to the north by commercial and residential properties; to the east by South Park Street and the on-ramp to US Hwy 12/18 West; to the south by commercial properties and to the west by commercial and residential properties. Site Photographs are located in Appendix C.

    1.3 Project Description

    Madison College has an agreement to purchase the property, which is currently occupied by Wisconsin Employee Trust Funds. As indicated in previous sections of this report, the property is currently occupied by one structure. The structure is situated on the eastcentral portion of the property, with paved parking located to the north, west and southwest of the structure. This structure will be demolished, and a newly constructed South Campus will be constructed in two phases. It is understood the parking lot will also be removed.

    The first phase of the project will include a multi-story structure that will include up to 45,000-square feet of newly constructed space that will consist of community meeting spaces, additional classrooms and support services. This structure is proposed to be constructed on the northern portion of the property.

    The second phase of the project will include approximately 30,000-square feet of a comprehensive suite of student services, community access to social service and community-based organizations, and additional classrooms and community space. Phase two addition is proposed to be located off the southeast portion of the first phase structure, and will extend south, along the eastern portion of the property. A copy of the Site layout map is included as Figure 2 in Appendix A.

    The structures will be surrounded to the south and west/southwest by paved parking lots. The property is currently serviced by the City of Madison water and sewer services.

    1.4 Purpose and Need 

    After a search of nearly one year, facilities planners for Madison College say the proposed location of this facility will best suit the needs for serving students and the South Madison community. When the college is completed in 2019, it will allow Madison College to join forces with the community partners to address significant racial, economic and educational disparities that exist on the south side of Madison, and will stimulate economic development in this part of the city.

    Madison College’s South campus will address vast racial disparities that exist on the South Site of Madison, and will provide access to higher education for individuals who have been historically marginalized but are capable of completing college if given the opportunity.

    The City of Madison is ranked the fifth most highly-educated city in the United States by the New York Times. In contrast, 57.8 percent (Madison College Dept. of Institution Research and Effectiveness) of the residents of Madison’s South Side do not have a college credential. Nearly 15 percent do not hold a high school diploma.

    Madison College – South Campus and the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) are discussing a partnership that will allow high school students enrolled in the MMSD to complete STEM-related coursework at the South Campus and earn college credits. The intent of the early college STEM academy is to create a transition option that prepares high school students for a smooth transition to college and a career.

    Through seven listening sessions with them 120 south side community members and leaders of the faith and community based organizations, it was determined there is a substantial need for a central meeting place, whether or not the residents are students at Madison College.

    Figure 2, located in Appendix A contains a proposed facility plan.

    1.5 Estimated Cost and Funding Source

    The total cost for the first phase of the project is approximately $13 million. Madison College has received approximately 11.3 million dollars in contributions to cover costs associated with phase one of the project. If the College can raise $7 million in additional donations, the second phase of the project will begin at the same time as Phase one.

    2.0 DESCRIPTION OF PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT

    2.1 Historical, Existing and Future Land Use

    Based on a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment performed by another consultant, the property was occupied by agricultural structures and utilized for agricultural purposes until the building that exists today was constructed in the mid-1950s. The structure has been utilized for the State of Wisconsin business since that time.

    2.2 Physical Environment

    2.2.1 Existing Utilities

    Review of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Groundwater Database did not identify a potable well on site. Discussions with the Amy Deming, Community Outreach Specialist for the City of Madison Water Utility Department, identified that potable water at the subject site is supplied by the City of Madison municipal water supply. Ms. Demming indicated that municipal water is provided by 22 municipal wells located in the City of Madison, with the closest well located near the corner of Park and Beld Streets, approximately ½ mile north of the subject site.

    The existing utilities that enter the subject site are sanitary service from West Badger Road to the north and City of Madison water service from Park Street to the east.

    2.2.2 Geology, Topography and Soils/Bedrock 

    The topography of the project area is relatively flat with an elevation of approximately 980 feet above mean sea level that gradually slopes to the north, east and southeast. A Topographical map is included in Appendix A.

    Based on a soil survey map from the Natural Resources Conservation Services, National Cooperative Soil Survey for Dane County, the subject property is comprised of several different soil types. The primary soil types on the property are McHenry silt loam and Plano silt loam, with small areas of St. Charles silt loam and Virgil silt loam present on the northern on the northern and northeastern corners of the property, respectively.

    The McHenry and Plano series primarily consist of approximately 6 inches to one foot of silt loam in the upper portion underlain by silty clay loam in the lower portion to depths ranging from 22 to 41 inches. Just below the silty clay loam a layer of loam is present to depths between 31 and 44 inches underlain by sandy loam to depths between 36 and 49 inches. Gravely sandy loam is present in below the sandy loam to depths of 79 inches.

    The McHenry Series consist of well drained silty soils that formed in 15 to 30 inches of silty sediment and underlying calcareous sandy loam till. These soils are silt covered till plains. The native vegetation was mixed deciduous forest.

    The Plano series consists of deep, well drained soils moderately well drained, nearly level to sloping soils on glaciated uplands. These soils formed in the 40 to 60 inches of loess and sandy loam glacial till or sand and gravel outwash under prairie grasses. The surface layer is dark brown and dark grayish-brown silt loam about 11 inches thick. The subsoil is about 35 inches thick. The upper 5 inches is dark brown silt loam, the next 25 inches is dark yellowish-brown silty clay loam and silt loam, and the lower 5 inches is dark brown loam. The underlying material is massive, calcareous, light yellowish-brown sandy loam till.

    The St. Charles series consists of well drained and moderately well drained silty soils. These soils formed in 40 to 60 inches of silty sediment and the underlying calcareous sandy loam glacial till. They occur in silt-covered till plains. The native vegetation was deciduous forest.

    The Virgil series consists of deep, nearly level and gently sloping, somewhat poorly drained soils on low benches on uplands and in stream valleys. These soils formed in deep loess and glacial till or sand and gravel outwash under mixed hardwoods and an understory of grasses.

    Based on the Soil Survey of Dane County, Wisconsin, prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service, the depth to bedrock is greater than 79 inches. Soil Survey Map of Dane County is in included in Appendix A.

    Review of the Bedrock Geologic Map of Wisconsin identified the bedrock in the area of the subject site to be sedimentary rocks of Paleozoic age. These units are part of the Cambrian System which consists of sandstone with some dolomite and shales. Depth to bedrock in the area is highly variable and is present at depths ranging from 0 to 90 meters.

    2.2.3 Surface and Groundwater Quality, Quantity and Drainage

    The site grading and storm water management plan for the project will be engineered for water quality runoff rates control and infiltrate storm water runoff in accordance with applicable requirements.

    All improvements, erosion control measures, storm water drainage control measures and construction erosion and drainage control measures would comply with all applicable City, County, state and federal rules, regulations and proper approvals as part of the design review procedure. The grading plan would show grading for all proposed improvements of the property.

    As indicated on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood plain maps, the site is not located within a flood plain.

    The depth to groundwater at the project site has been found to be approximately 5 to 12 feet below grade. Groundwater elevations within the project site are expected to fluctuate during the year influences by the groundwater pumping of nearby municipal wells, the frequency and magnitude of precipitation events, surface water runoff, snowmelt, and other hydrological and hydrogeological factors.

    2.2.4 Air Quality

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified six air pollutants of nationwide concern (criteria pollutants): CO, NO2, ozone, PM-10, sulfur oxides (SOx, measured as SO2), and lead. The National and Wisconsin Ambient Air Quality Standards are published in the Code of Federal Regulations – 40 CFR 50.4 to 50.12 and the Wisconsin Administrative Code NR 404.04, respectively. All states are required to submit to the EPA a list identifying those air quality control regions or portions thereof, which meet or exceed the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) or cannot be classified because of insufficient data. Portions of air quality control regions that were shown by monitored data or air quality modeling to exceed the NAAQS for any criteria pollutant are designated “non-attainment” areas for that pollutant.

    General Engineering reviewed the State of Wisconsin WDNR Air Quality points, the closest in Dane County for Ozone and PM2.5 from Site ID # 550250041. The Ozone and PM2.5 AQI Value was 44, which is indicated as “good”. The last measurement of record was November 15, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.

    2.2.5 Climate

    Dane County is part of the Wisconsin’s South-central Climate Division. This office is a partner with Midwestern Regional Climate Center in providing climate services to the public. Collaborations with Wisconsin Initiative of Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) research on climate impacts are now underway.

    The Wisconsin climate is typically continental with some modification by Lake Michigan and Superior. About two-thirds of the annual precipitation falls during the growing season, when frost is not present within the soils. The rapid succession of storms moving from west to east and southwest to northeast account for the stimulating climate. The climate in Wisconsin is broke down into four different seasons, spring, summer, autumn and winter.

    Spring: (March through May): The average spring temperature between 1971 and 2000 is approximately 44 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring has frequent days where the temperature drops below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. The average precipitation in the area of the subject property is approximately 8 to 10 inches.

    Summer (June through August): The average summer temperatures between 1971 and 2000 is approximately 70 to 73 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer is known to have frequent hot and humid temperatures. The average precipitation for the area of the subject property is approximately 12 inches.

    Autumn (September through December): The average autumn temperature between 1971 and 2000 is approximately 48 degrees Fahrenheit. The average precipitation for the area of the subject property is 8 to 9 inches.

    Winter (January through March): The average winter temperature between 1971 and 2000 is approximately 14 degrees Fahrenheit. The winter precipitation is approximately 5 to 6 inches.

    2.2.6 Noise

    The unit of measure for sound intensity is decibel. The decibel measuring scale is based on reference sound pressure approximately equal to the threshold of human hearing. The reference pressure is set equal to 0 decibel, and all higher decibel levels are related to it. The relationship is logarithmic, which means for every 10 decibel increase in sound, the sound pressure level increases 10 times. Normal conversation produces approximately 50-60 decibels, and the threshold of pain for humans is approximately 140 decibels. The National Safety Council recommends exposure to no more than 85 decibels throughout an eight hour day.

    The proposed Madison College South Campus site is located in an area that is currently developed with commercial and residential properties. The property was constructed in 1956 and has been utilized by the State of Wisconsin since that time.

    Noise impacts during construction are expected to be for a relatively short duration and within standard hours of operation between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Construction would be performed in compliance with requirements of Madison College and the City of Madison’s noise ordinance. Major construction elements that could produce elevated noise levels include equipment during demolition, grading, excavation, hauling, material delivery, construction and landscaping. Anticipated noise during construction would most directly impact those individuals near the project site. Noise impacts from construction are expected to be minimized by maintaining equipment mufflers and limiting operation hours.

    Once construction activities are complete and Madison College is constructed, it is not anticipated that noise levels would increase.

    2.2.7 Light

    Lighting would come from T8 fixture, dual-level switches, and controlled by occupancy sensors in certain locations. The emergency lighting would consist of battery pack units located along the egress route and in mechanical and support spaces. Exit signs would be energy efficient LED type.

    The exterior lighting and parking lot lighting would be LED Luminaire lighting.

    2.2.8 Hazardous Material and Soil Contamination

    As part of an accepted property transaction between Madison College and State of Wisconsin, a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) was performed by True North Consultants of Madison, Wisconsin, dated July 5, 2017. This Phase I ESA was available on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) database and is discussed below:

    The Phase I ESA was performed on the approximate 4.35-acre parcel of land located at 801 W. Badger Road, in the City of Madison, Wisconsin. The property was occupied by the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds. Based on the Phase I ESA, the following recognized environmental conditions were defined:

    • A former 10,000-gallon fuel oil underground storage tank (UST) along with a leaking underground storage tank (LUST) activity were present on the property. Based on Correspondence from the WDNR LUST file, the UST was formerly located northwest of the existing structure. This activity was “closed” by the WDNR in 1993. It was indicated that a small amount of petroleum affected soils may have remained in place along the south wall of the former tank. Therefore, this release was considered a “controlled recognized environmental condition”. No further assessment was performed in the area of this UST.

    It should be noted that during construction, petroleum affected soils may be encountered. If encountered, they must be handled in accordance with WDNR guidelines.

    • There was an unreported release consisting of approximately 40 to 50 gallons of hydraulic oil from the loading platform in 2002. It was recommended a Phase II ESA be performed including soil sampling in the area of the loading ramp to evaluate if whether residual contamination was present.

    Based on the recognized environmental condition associated with the unreported release, a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment was completed. The results of the Phase II ESA were provided to the WDNR in a letter dated August 31, 2017 by True North Consultants, which was reviewed by General Engineering Company. Two soil probes (GB-01 and GG-02) were advanced northwest and south of the loading ramp to depths of 5 and 10 feet below the ground surface. Three soil samples were submitted for laboratory analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

    Based on analytical results, no VOCs or PCBs were detected in any of the soil samples above laboratory limit of detection. Multiple PAH concentrations were reported with “J” flags by the laboratory. This indicates the reported concentrations are above the limit of detection, but below the limit of quantitation. The samples containing PAHs above the laboratory limit of detection were collected from GB-01 (2-4’) and GB-02 (2-3’). GB-01 (5-6’) did not contain PAH concentrations above the limit of detection. None of the PAH concentrations exceeded their respective NR 720 Residual Contaminant Levels (RCLs).

    Based on the Phase I and II ESA performed at the property, a Liability Clarification and Current Environmental Conditions request was submitted to the WDNR. According to the WDNR response, dated October 26, 2017, the property has historically been occupied by a 51,000-square foot building since the late 1950’s housing the Wisconsin Farm Bureau/Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP and Wisconsin Employee Trust Funds. Prior to the office building being constructed, the site has agricultural related structures and various forms of agricultural activity.

    The WDNR correspondence indicated that one or more hazardous substance discharges have occurred on the property. However, the Department determined that further site investigation activities were not required, and no further response action was required under ch. NR 700, Wisconsin Administration Code.

    2.3 Traffic Transportation and Parking

    2.3.1 Traffic

    Access to the property will be from Badger Road, north of the subject site. The proposed Madison College facility includes the addition of approximately 100 additional parking stalls. With the change in use of the property, peak hour traffic, square footage of the building, a traffic analysis is being completed. As of the date of this report, the analysis has not been completed.

    2.3.2 Site Access and Parking

    Traffic would likely increase during construction of the facility. Vehicle access would be from Badger Road.

    The change of use from a commercial structure to Madison College would likely result in a slight increase in traffic within the parking lot. Approximately 100 additional parking stalls will be added with the new parking lot for Madison College. Access to the property would be from Badger Road, north of the Subject Site. Parking will be west and southwest of the proposed structures.

    2.3.3 Aesthetics

    The existing structure will be demolished and replaced with a newly constructed Madison College South.

    Lighting – The project will include a variety of different types of LED lighting methods, likely including, but not limited to exterior yard lights, walkway lighting and building lighting that will utilize design methods to generally shade, diffuse and reflect light away from adjacent parcels.

    Madison College will be utilizing Photovoltaic Cells (Solar Panels) for the administrative space on the southern sloped roof.

    3.0 DESCRIPTION OF BIOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENT

    The biological character of the project site will not significantly change by constructing the new structure.

    3.1 Wetlands

    General Engineering reviewed the WDNR Surface Water website for Wetland Determination. Wetland indicators were indicated on the map along the Park Street corridor. Madison College is currently performing a wetland delineation due to the presence of wetlands in the Wisconsin Department of Transportation right-of-way beyond the property boundary. As of the date of this report, the wetland delineation survey has not been completed. A copy of the map from the WDNR Surface Water website is included in Appendix A.

    3.2 Floodplains 

    General Engineering reviewed the WDNR Surface Water Data Viewer to determine if the project was located within a Flood area. The map indicated the proposed project was in an area of minimal flood hazard Zone X. A copy of the map is included in Appendix A.

    3.3 Vegetation and Natural Area 

    The Proposed Project area has been developed with a commercial structure and parking lot since the mid to late 1950s. The majority of the property is developed with the structure and paved parking areas. Landscaped grass areas are located along the eastern portion of the property, and south/southeast of the structure.

    There does not appear to be aquatic resources (wetlands, streams, rivers, lakes, etc.) within the property boundary. Building construction is not expected to intercept the groundwater table and surface water runoff would continue to be directed to the drainage swale on the southeastern portion of the property.

    Erosion control plans and sediment control plans will be required and followed in accordance with Wisconsin Administrative Code NR 151 and NR 216.

    3.4 Wildlife

    The property has been developed as a commercial structure since the mid-1950s. The property may have small mammals and birds that use the area. However, the property does not offer quality wildlife habitat.

    3.5 Threatened and Endangered Species

    General Engineering performed an Endangered Resource Preliminary Assessments, dated November 10, 2017. The preliminary assessment indicated additional research should be performed. Therefore, General Engineering prepared an Endangered Species Review Request to the WDNR. The response received from the WDNR indicated the Madison College South Campus project is covered by Activity 2-A1, and a letter was provided indicating the Endangered Resources requirements have been met. A copy of the WDNR ER letter is attached in Appendix D.

    3.6 Land Use

    The Subject Property is currently occupied by a building, paved parking lot and landscaped green space. The area of the proposed addition contains some landscaped area.

    3.7 Zoning 

    The zoning for the property is currently Commercial Center District.

    4.0 SOCIAL AND CULTURAL ENVIRONMENT

    4.1 Public Safety and Education

    The proposed Madison College South Campus facility will create a state of the art facility that will serve students enrolled in various courses and certifications that are offered by Madison College.

    4.2 Population

    The proposed project is located within the southern portion of the City of Madison, Dane County.

    Community            2010
    City of Madison     233,084
    Dane County         488,073

    This information was gathered from the U.S. Census Bureau (factfinder).

    As of April 1, 2010, there are 108,843 housing units in the City of Madison. General Engineering attempted to determine race and Hispanic Origin on the United States Census QuickFacts. However, information was not available for 2016. However, the 2010 census information indicated the following:

    Racial Composition                City of Madison
    White                                      191,715 (82%)
    Black or African American     16,786 (7.2%)
    American Indian                     756 (.032%)
    Asian                                       20,443 (8.77%)
    Hispanic or Latino                  17,025 (7.3%)

    4.3 School Districts:

    The area of the Subject Site is serviced by the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD). MMSD is made up of 32 elementary schools, 12 middle schools and 7 high schools.

    Madison College is one of the largest schools in the Wisconsin Technical College System. There are five main locations in Madison known as the Truax, Downtown, South, West and Commercial Avenue. In addition, Madison College has four different regional locations located in Fort Atkinson, Portage, Reedsburg and Watertown. Madison College covers twelve county districts which include Columbia, Dane, Green, Rock, Jefferson, Dodge, Iowa, Sauk, Richland, Juneau, Adams and Marquette.

    Madison Area Technical College serves close to 40,000 students in all or part of the 12-county district. Madison College provides training for approximately 150 careers.

    4.4 Municipal Services

    The Subject Property is currently connected to the City of Madison’s Sewer and Water utilities. Electric and natural gas are serviced by Madison Gas and Electric.

    4.5 Farmland

    The property is a developed property and has no farmland associated with it.

    4.6 Historical, Architectural, Archeological Resources

    The Wisconsin State Historical Society database was reviewed for known cultural resources within the project area. The State Historical Preservation Office Architectural History Inventory (AHI) was reviewed to search for historical properties, and the Archeological Site Inventory (ASI) was searched for archeological properties.

    The results of the AHI and ASI search indicated no listings on the Subject Property for historic structures or archeological and burial sites.

    4.7 Economic Environment

    The project cost for the first phase is estimated to be approximately $13 million. Donations and grants were received to pay for the majority of construction for the first phase. If Madison College receives an additional $7 million in donations, the second phase will start and be completed by the year 2019. It is anticipated that once this facility is operating, the downtown campus will be transferred to this new facility. Annual operating costs for the new facility have not yet been calculated. The creation of a new facility will likely create student retention and may also attract new students to Madison College.

    The creation of this south campus will also meet the needs of the South Madison community. The college will offer affordable programs and classes that fill the diversity gaps. The access to training and education will create job growth and economic development.

    The construction of the project will result in short-term increase in employment related to the construction activities, which will in turn have a positive economic impact for local communities for daily living expenses such as food, fuel, building supplies, equipment and lodging.
     

    5.0 RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SHORT-TERM USES OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE MAINTENANCE AND ENHANCEMENT OF LONG-TERM PRODUCTIVITY

    5.1 Probable Unavoidable Adverse Environmental Impacts

    This section reviews and compares the potential short-term impacts of the Proposed Project on the environment with the maintenance and enhancement of long-term productivity. Construction of the proposed facility would not significantly change the usage of the property since it has operated as a commercial facility since the 1950s. It is understood the current occupants of the Wisconsin Employee Trust Fund will be moving to a new location. It is not anticipated that jobs will be lost during this transition.

    Short-term impacts during construction may include increases in local traffic, additional noise, air pollution and limited soil erosion. Except for increase in local traffic flow, impacts will be reduced or eliminated to the extent possible with Best Management Practices implemented during construction. Overall, impacts associated with construction related activities will be temporary in nature and are not expected to alter the long-term productivity of the environment. However, the College will work with the City of Madison and Dane County if necessary to address any traffic issues.

    Long-term impacts will include some increase to the traffic flow. A traffic study is being completed. However, the results have not been finalized. This information will be added to this EIS upon completion.

    The property is serviced by the City of Madison water and sewer utilities. These utilities will be connected to the newly constructed buildings. The long-term use of the utilities is not expected to be substantial to the demand of the existing facility. It is not anticipated that it would have a significant long-term impact on the consumption of energy.

    A wetland delineation is currently being conducted for the property. The property is a developed property with paved parking, and a smaller percentage of greenspace on the eastern portion of the property. If wetlands are present on the property, proper WDNR permitting will be performed. Once the Wetland delineation is completed, the information will be added to this report.

    The proposed Madison South Campus will be constructed on a property that has been developed with a 51,000-square foot building since the mid-1950s. The long-term impact to the property may be the increase of traffic flow. Mitigation efforts to minimize the traffic flow can be put in place. The new Madison College facility newly constructed building will provide services to southern Madison, which would be more beneficial to economic growth and long-term productivity when compared to the impacts that could occur.

    5.2 Irreversible or Irretrievable Commitment of Resources.

    The initial phase of the project is anticipated to cost $13 million, of which the majority has been donated or received in grants. If an additional $7 million is raised, the second phase of the project will be constructed prior to 2019. The scope of the project is projected to be completed within this budget. The on-going annual operating and maintenance expenses will be funded through program revenue.

    5.2.1 Energy and Building Resources

    Construction of the facility will require the use of electricity and petroleum fuels by construction equipment. Electricity and natural gas will be consumed during the daily operations of the proposed facility. These energy sources will be irretrievably lost with the implementation of the proposed project.

    Building materials, such as steel, glass, concrete, sand, asphalt, will be consumed during construction and operation of the proposed facility. Although some of these materials could be recycled if the building were destroyed or demolished, most of the resources will be irretrievably lost.

    5.2.2 Wetlands

    A wetland delineation was performed as part of the proposed project. A proper storm water management plan will be prepared prior to construction.

    6.0 ALTERNATIVE TO PROPOSED ACTION

    6.1 No Action Alternative/Alternative Project Location/Design

    Madison College has been searching for almost one year to find a location to serve the population of south Madison. The alternatives evaluated were the construction of the new facility in this location or “No Action” alternative. No conflicts concerning alternatives uses of available resources have been identified with the proposed construction. The “No Action” alternative was determined not to be a viable option since it would not satisfy the purpose of the propose action to meet the needs of the residents of South Madison.
