SPACE LOCATION, ALLOCATION, LAYOUT AND MEASUREMENT STANDARDS POLICIES A. State Building Commission Policy Summary : It is the state’s intent that the location of state owned and/or leased facilities be located and constructed in harmony with the desires and concerns of local governments when feasible. To meet this goal, the State Building Commission, in concert with the Department of Administration, and with input and direction from numerous municipal governments, established a policy in 1979 for locating state occupied or utilized facilities in urban areas. While this policy was initially directed toward larger urban areas, the Division of State Facilities, as encouraged and/or directed by the Secretary of DOA has adopted the basic philosophy in all communities where appropriate and meaningful. Facility Location Policy A. Except where such selection is incompatible with agency program objectives, the process for the construction, acquisition or rental of office space to meet the needs of state agencies shall be given first consideration to central city locations, including those areas which may be recommended by local officials. B. Except where client access would be demonstrably restricted or fiscally prohibitive, consolidation and co-location of state offices in a single facility or proximate facilities will be given first consideration. C. The process for the acquisition and/or construction of state owned office facilities shall include consideration of the impact that alternate locations will have on social, economic, environmental and other conditions in the community. Such consideration shall be made in conformance with the provisions of the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act (WEPA). D. Consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of state ownership as opposed to state leasing shall be done on a case-by-case basis. E. The policies of agency consolidation and central city location will be most actively pursued in those cities where the state uses more than 20,000 square feet of office space. In cities or jurisdictions where there is less than 20,000 square feet of office space, the policies will be considered during the process of review and approval of space requests and lease renewals. F. The process of meeting state office space needs shall also include consideration of: 1. Compatibility of the location with local and regional development and environmental objectives. 2. Recommendations of local officials. 3. Commitment of local government resources and services. 4. Availability of adequate public and client access through public transportation and parking.
