Another neighborhood votes no on mixed-use proposal
Despite the Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association’s 10–4 vote to reject a developer’s plans for the 700 block of East Johnson Street in Madison, the project may continue as planned, according to a report in The Capital Times.
Reportedly, developer Chris Houden has already made several concessions to plans to modernize the streetscape on 11 lots between 717 and 753 E. Johnson St. He would demolish three existing homes, relocate four others, and convert four existing homes to renovated apartments. Replacing the moved or demolished homes would be two three-story mixed-use buildings for 56 apartments.
Plans have been submitted to the Urban Design Commission. Houden hopes to present the project as soon as Dec. 20 and break ground in April.
