1 - What’s Happening with the Apache Pond? (Attachment:  “1 pond-tree plans.jpg”)
Winter is waning.  With the longer days, bulldozers will come alive on the site of the future wet pond just below Crescent Road at Apache Drive.  This is in the Fitchburg conservation area that was cleared of trees and brush last summer.  Officially, this is lots 19 and 20.
According to Fitchburg Environmental Engineer Rick Eilertson, on Friday Fitchburg just opened the bids that 13 firms submitted for the construction project. The Fitchburg City Council will be accepting one of the bids very soon. The big noise should start at the end of this month or perhaps in March.

In order to get bids, the plans were fleshed out this fall. Neighbors toured the site October 13 with Rick to get details.
What will these plans mean on the ground?  First, about a dozen trees still left on the site will be cut. (Some trees will remain including a clump of large cottonwoods.)  Next, some existing sanitary and storm sewer lines wlll be moved. Finally, the pond will be dug in and embankments raised.  It will look like a big project even though the pond is relatively small. Check out the attachment on tree plans to see what will be cut.  The trees to be cut are marked with a yellow X on the map.
Plans call for two ponding areas within the pond although this won’t be noticeable once the water goes in.  The first ponding area, a forebay on the east end, will allow for initial sediment settling.  The bigger area will allow for more settling.  The entire purpose of the pond is to create still water so that the tiny soil particles and other solids washed off paved and other hard surfaces and lawns can sink to the bottom.  Eventually, the clearer water will exit to the wetland below Crescent just where it does now.  
Besides protecting downstream waters from sediment, the facility will be a place for environmental learning.  Signage will explain the purpose of the pond.  A group of citizens including some Dunn’s Marsh residents is also working on ideas for what the signage will look like.   The group may be recommending additional informational signs such as facts on plants and animals.
Eilertson is still accepting volunteers to join this group which will be recommending names for different Fitchburg ponds as well as signage.  Interested parties should contact him at 270-4264 direct, 235-0412 cell. or to volunteer.  For now, this pond is called the Apache Pond.
The path around the pond will consist of three surfaces in different areas:  mostly limestone screenings like you see on gravel bike paths, some concrete on the south edge which will also serve as an emergency overflow spillway, and blacktop on the east end.
Fitchburg may also be applying for grant money to build a boardwalk to connect Crescent Road and the planned Cannonball Trail.  The Cannonball will be located along the north shore of Dunn’s Marsh.  The blacktop path on the east end of the pond would connect to this boardwalk. This is shown on the planting plan referenced in the next article.
By the way, thanks to Apache residents Bill and Becky Martin for asking, “What’s happening with the pond?”  Their question spurred me to making a visit to Rick Eilertson at City Hall and ultimately getting the maps you can access with this newsletter.
Rick Eilertson also provided electronic copies of plans that show the elevations of the pond and the location of the new sanitary and stormwater sewers.  Contact me if you want to receive them by e-mail.

2 - Planting Plan for Apache Pond Revealed  
(Attachment: “2 pond-planting plan.jpg”)
Immediately after construction, probably in June, the disturbed area around the new Apache detention pond will be seeded to a variety of native plants except for the terrace between Crescent Road and the new sidewalk that will be installed along the marsh side of the street.  Five different plant zones are planned.
Turf grass will go in next to the street.  On the map, turf grass is shown with green lines in triplicate.  

Shortgrass prairie species of grass will go into the upland areas on the south side of the sidewalk and all around the pond.  These are varieties such as little bluestem, sideoats grama grass, Canadian wild rye, and prairie dropseed.   They will be sowed in the yellow area of the planting map.  
In the lower elevation areas immediately adjacent to the pond and also on the outside of the berm, varieties adapted to wet sedge meadow will be seeded.  The seed mix will contain bluejoint grass, river bank wild rye, reed mana grass, and prairie cord grass.  This area on the map has paired blue lines.

A mesic prairie seed mix will be cast on the west end of the land. The area is shown with green dotted lines.  This mesic prairie will include taller grass varieties such as big bluestem, switch grass, Indian grass, and Virginia wild rye.
Closer to the Prairie View Condos the land will be seeded to a wet woodland seed mix.  This area is shown with dotted magenta lines.  Some seed varieties will be fringed brome, silky and Virgina wild rye, Bottlebrush and bluejoint grasses.
Fitchburg Environmental Engineer Rick Eilerson said that the grasses would be sowed, and then when broadleaf weeds come up, they will be killed with an herbicide before a wild flower and forb mix will go in.  The wildflower mix will probably be planted in August.  Some wet sedge meadow emergent plants may also be put in the shallow part of the pond.   Some of the wild flowers planned for the site are bulrushes, blue flag iris, and common arrowhead in the “ermergent zone” of the shallow water.
The pond will have a “bench” of shallow water with a 10:1 slope. This is a safety feature to protect anyone trying to wade into the pond.  Wading or swimming here is definitely undesirable, if not forbidden, however.  The pond will be filling with dirty storm water – not “fishable, swimable” water.
Some wet woodland trees will also be planted on the east side of the easternmost lot:  swamp white oak and river birch.  They are shown in a kidney bean shaped area with magenta hatching between the existing large trees and Dunn’s View condo property line.
A small rain garden at the far southeast corner of the easternmost lot will get some showy wildflowers including wild columbine, purple coneflower, New England aster, mountain mint, yellow coneflower, and golden Alexander.    Some of these species can be found in the rain garden planted in Marlborough Park a few years ago.  The rain garden is depicted in green hatched lines.

3 - My Heart Fell (Attachment: “3 col hawks & doves.jpg”)
I had just glanced out into my back yard, and something was different, wrong.  A huge dark heap of something formed a mound partially behind a snow bank under my bird feeder. I peered at it, suddenly realizing that I was looking at feathers, lots of them.  My heart fell.  
First thing that popped into my mind was that a large owl or hawk was lying dead underneath my bird feeder.  Had it banged into a window because of the reflected sky there?  Had it broken its neck?  I hadn’t heard that sickening thump that signals a dead or stunned bird.  Still, I felt terrible.
I ran for my camera and quickly snapped a photo through the window. As I looked again, the heap moved. At least it was still alive.
I grabbed my boots, and after hastily stuffing my feet into them, opened the back door as quietly as I could, hoping to get another picture through the clear air.  That’s when the TWO hawks in the heap startled and flew!!!   
Both winged their way to my tall walnut tree. A pack of crows immediately broke into raucous scolding.
Fast as I could, I focused on the hawks and moved the lever on my camera to telephoto.  I got my first shot off just as one flew.  The other sat and posed for a lengthy time, looking a little ruffled.  I think they were first season red-tailed hawks since their tails did not flash the tell-tail rich rust of a full adult.
See some of what I saw by clicking on the attachment.  A bonus is a couple of mourning dove photos.

5 - Carousel Bayrd Reports County Board News:  Verona Road, Lake Levels, Census, & More

Happy 2011! Hope everyone is staying warm this winter.  Here’s what’s happening on the county board:  

Budget: The county board passed the 2011 budget with a less than 3% property tax increase.  Some of the highlights:
* No cuts to human services;
* Increases Dane County Sheriff positions at the Dane County Airport; decreases underutilized Dane County Sheriff Community Officer positions;
* Creates sustainability coordinator position to oversee all county buildings and operations, projected to save the county hundreds of thousands of dollars;
* Creates two county-run mental health crisis treatment centers, to better serve the community and save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year by eliminating expensive involuntary commitments;
* Funds foreclosure assistance program that helps people stay in their homes, pay back-owed taxes, and navigate the legal world of foreclosure, liens, and bankruptcy (I was the lead sponsor);
* Increases conservation fund by approximately $2 million;
* Establishes permanent med drop cites throughout Dane County for expired and unused medications.  

Verona Road: I am the lead sponsor of a resolution asking the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to integrate changes to its Verona Road expansion plan that would protect the neighborhoods impacted by the construction.  The requested changes include: installing noise barriers to mitigate increased traffic noise at the beltline/ Verona Road interchange; monitoring and mitigating air, noise, and storm water run off quality changes due to projected increased traffic; install bike lanes and sidewalks on all frontage roads and neighborhood roads being impacted.  The resolution passed the full county board unanimously.
Interoperable Radios: We are finally ready to break ground on the county’s interoperable radio system.  The end result establishes seamless communications between all of the county’s police, fire, and EMS service providers.  Since so much time had passed between our original contract to build this service in 2009 and finalizing the details of the system in February of 2011, the county was able to considerably decreased construction costs—from the original $30 million proposal, to the $18 million scaled-down version, to a final contract bid of $14.8 million.  And annual maintenance costs are much less than originally budgeted for as well.  Phew!  After more than 2 years working on this, I’m looking forward to the successful end result.

Lake Levels: There are several proposals making their way through county board committees that aim to better regulate the water levels on Lakes Mendota, Monona, and Wingra.   The goals are to simultaneously maximize recreation on the lakes and minimize the likelihood of flooding and shoreland erosion.  At issue is how to accomplish both those goals.  The various proposals may impact the type of boat you can have on the lakes, how fast it can go, and where you can have it. More to come as proposals move through the committees.  
Badger Prairie: The County’s new Badger Prairie Health Care Center opened in February, ensuring continued high quality care for our most vulnerable citizens.  The new center provides specialized long-term care for up to 120 senior citizens and adults with disabilities who have needs that are too challenging to be met in standard nursing homes. There are several green features to the building, including geo-thermal wells to reduce heating and air conditioning costs, energy efficient lights and temperature controls, and the use of recycled materials.  As a result, the county was awarded more than $60,000 in clean energy rebates. And the building is expected to save taxpayers approximately $100,000 in energy costs each year compared to the former facility.

County Employees Union Contract: The county board approved a new 3-year contract with our union employees. There will be no salary increases for 2012, 2013, or 2014.  And, with a reworking of some health care services, the county will save money compared to last year—More than $1 million each year is expected in savings compared to years past.  The contract provides stability for both the county and the workers, something that is sorely needed these days.   

Census Data: The census numbers for Dane County are expected to be announced this spring.  If the county has more than 500,000 people, state laws may be activated that force changes in a wide array of county programming.  Some programs may get exponentially more funding; some programs may be taken over by the state or another separate entity; some elected positions may change.  It is bit unclear what laws will apply to us or which laws will be enforced by the state.  We’ll have to stay tuned and see just how popular Dane County has become.  
Parks and Open Space 5-Year Plan:  I am pleased to have been appointed to the Dane County Parks and Open Space Planning Committee. The Plan is developed every 5 years and is meant to serve as a guide to county government and elected officials when making funding decisions. It addresses countywide needs for public spaces and recreation, including the creation and preservation of parks, hiking trails, bike trails, camping sites, public fishing access, public hunting access, land purchases, dog parks, wildlife protection, and water protection.  This is a yearlong process that will begin with a series of public hearings throughout the county.
Vote: The spring primary election is Tuesday, February 15th.  Primary races for Dane County Executive, Madison Mayor, and Wisconsin State Supreme Court will be on the ballot.  Please vote!
As always, please contact me with any thoughts or questions.  Email is  Phone is 442-6294 home and 658-7333 cell.

8 - Get the Lead Out!  Program for Families with Kids (Attachment: “5 Lead paint flyer.jpg”)
Whether you live in an apartment or house, if your building was built before 1978 and you have children under age 6 who spend time in your home – yours or daycare kids – you may be eligible for a program to get rid of lead in your residence.
Except for some of the Belmar Hills single family homes, and the newer developments such as Renaissance and Avalon Village and the new apartments on Allied, many homes and apartments in the neighborhood were built before 1978. This doesn’t necessarily mean they have lead in them, but if they do and you have young kids, you may be eligible.
The significance of the 1978 date is that lead paint was banned in September 1977. Parenthetically, the US Environmental Protection Agency now requires that all renovators who work in homes built pre 1978 and disturb more than six square-feet of lead paint be RRP certified.
Why should anyone care about lead?  Because lead hurts kids!  As the attached flyer mentions,  lead “can interfere with your child’s brain development and cause learning disabilities and other health and behavior problems.”
To learn more about this program, check out the flyer or contact Diane at Common Wealth Development, Inc., 256-3527, ext. 27.                                                           by Mary Mullen

14 - RTA to Hold Public Hearing on Draft Phase I Plan for Transit, Feb. 9 (or comment in writing)
Since its beginnings in early 2010 the Dane County Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has held meetings around the RTA area to meet with local officials and discuss transit planning and options.
We have also worked with officials and transit commissions in multiple communities to listen to demands for transit and possible service options for the region. Additionally, we have consulted with the staff of the MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) which does transportation planning for the same area as the RTA.
The result is the Draft Phase I Plan for Transit which has been approved for circulation and discussion. At the suggestion of town officials, who have attended our sessions, we are sending it to all municipalities in Dane County. We do this to honor the request.
However, it should be noted in accordance with the resolution adopted at our first meeting we will hold a referendum only in the RTA area. As a constituted municipal entity we cannot authorize a referendum outside our boundaries. We recognize that there is some misconception that if the referendum passes and a sales tax is imposed as to where it will be applied. Again, statutes are specific that the sales tax is only imposed within the RTA area.

The plan is presented for comments and discussion. No decision has been made by the RTA on what or when to have a referendum.
Additional information on the RTA can be found at our web site - <>  - including a list of members and how to contact them.  Comments may also be sent to David Trowbridge
The RTA has scheduled a public hearing at one of its regularly-scheduled Board of Directors meetings - Wednesday, February 9, 6:00 p.m., Fitchburg City Hall (5520 Lacy Road, Fitchburg) - to also receive comments from citizens who wish to express their views. We hope the product of our work can be improved by public discussion. Thank you for your interest in our work.
Dick Wagner, Chair
Dane County Regional Transit Authority
