UM, BUT THE APPLICANTS MAY STAY ON THE LINE TO MAKE CLARIFICATION ON, ON, UM, UH, MATTERS ON THE APPLICATION.

BEFORE WE START THE MEETING, BEFORE WE START THE PUBLIC HEARINGS, WE HAVE TWO PRESENTATIONS, ONE ON THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS BY CHERUB OR TRON LAKE OF THIS PRESERVATION OFFICE.

AND, UH, ITEM B THE AUSTIN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COURT BRIEFING WE'LL HAVE BEFORE WE START THE PUBLIC HEARINGS.

NOW, WHEN WE START THE PUBLIC HEARINGS, WE'LL GO THROUGH THE AGENDA.

WE'LL PULL ITEMS FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA.

AND THEN WE WILL HEAR THE REMAINER OR THE REMAINING ITEMS ON THE AGENDA IN THE ORDER THAT THEY ARE ON THE AGENDA.

WE HAVE FOUR SECTIONS, SECTION A FOR INITIATION OF HISTORIC ZONING OR HISTORIC DISTRICTS, SECTION B DISCUSSION AND ACTION ON APPLICATIONS FOR CERTIFICATES OF APPROPRIATENESS, CE, OR APPLICATIONS FOR PERMANENT WITHIN A NATIONAL REGISTER DISTRICT AND D DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION ON APPLICATIONS FOR DEMOLITION OR RELOCATION.

SO WE'LL BE TAKING THOSE, UM, IN ORDER, ONCE WE APPROVE THE, UM, THE CONSENT AGENDA AND GO ON TO THE REGULAR AGENDA,

[2A. Presentation on the Historic Design Standards by Cara Bertron]

MS. BERTRAND, ARE YOU READY TO GIVE A PRESENTATION? OKAY.

THE FLOOR IS YOURS.

TAKE IT OVER.

WELL, PERFECT.

THANK YOU, ELIZABETH.

CAN YOU PULL UP THE PRESENTATION PLEASE? CAN SOMEONE, LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU SEE IT? THERE'S A DELAY, BUT THAT'S OKAY.

SHE'S THIS YEAR.

OKAY.

AND, UM, SO THERE'S, THERE'S FOUR THINGS.

WAIT, SORRY.

WHO IS, WHO IS THIS SPEAKING? PLEASE IDENTIFY YOURSELF.

WHOEVER IS TALKING ABOUT THE FOUR THINGS.

I THINK I'VE GOT MY YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ON MUTE WHILE THE OTHER PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING RIGHT NOW, YOU'RE LISTENING TO A BRIEFING.

BEFORE WE GO ONTO THE PUBLIC HEARINGS, WE WILL GET TO THE PUBLIC HEARINGS AFTER SHARING TWO BRIEFINGS.

OKAY, SORRY.

SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION.

STAY ON, STAY ON THE LINE.

UM, THAT'S WHY WE'RE TAKING THE SPEAKERS AT THE BEGINNING.

SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO STAY ON THE TELEPHONE LINE ON LIGHT TO GO AHEAD, MS. BERTRANG.

THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE IT.

AND SORRY.

YEAH.

SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION TO EVERYONE ELSE.

SO IT'S

[00:05:01]

A COMMISSIONER'S IT'S AN HONOR TO BE HERE TALKING ABOUT THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS, UH, ON BEHALF OF THE DESIGN STANDARDS WORKING GROUP THAT THE COMMISSION ESTABLISHED IN FALL OF 2018, WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO THE END OF A TWO YEAR PROCESS WITH NUMEROUS STAKEHOLDERS AND TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL BENEFITS FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION IN AUSTIN.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I WANT TO BEGIN BY ACKNOWLEDGING THAT HISTORIC PRESERVATION IS A TOOL TO STEWARD CHANGE NEXT SLIDE.

AND ALSO THE DESIGN STANDARDS PROVIDE A CLEAR AND OBJECTIVE WAY TO EVALUATE PROPOSED CHANGES.

DESIGN STANDARDS ARE AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR PROPERTY OWNERS, DESIGNERS, CITY STAFF, AND HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION MEMBERS TO HAVE COMMON GROUND WHEN PROPOSING AND EVALUATING PROJECTS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS EFFORT TO CREATE A SINGLE SET OF HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS IS IMPORTANT FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS.

FIRST TO INCREASE EQUITY IN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT APPLICATION PROCESS RIGHT NOW, COMMUNITY APPLICANT TEAMS MUST CREATE THEIR OWN HISTORIC DISTRICT DESIGN STANDARDS, WHICH ADDS A LOT OF TIME TO THE PROCESS.

MOST APPLICANT TEAMS HAVE OPTED TO HIRE A CONSULTANT, WHICH IS GREAT, BUT ALSO ADDS COST PRESERVATION.

AUSTIN DOES OFFER A DESIGN STANDARDS TEMPLATE, WHICH WAS AT THE BEGINNING BASIS FOR THESE STANDARDS, BUT SOME EXPERTISE IS STILL REQUIRED.

IT'S A STEEP LEARNING CURVE.

IF COMMUNITY MEMBERS DON'T ALREADY HAVE EXPERIENCE IN HISTORIC PRESERVATION, HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS WILL ALSO INCREASE PREDICTABILITY FOR PROPERTY OWNERS IN POTENTIAL HISTORIC DISTRICTS.

SO THEY'LL KNOW FROM THE BEGINNING, WHAT DESIGNATION ENTAILS, IT WILL TAKE A COMMON SENSE APPROACH BY RECOGNIZING COMMON UNDERLYING PRINCIPLES.

SO ALL EIGHT OF OUR EXISTING HISTORIC DISTRICTS CREATED THEIR OWN DESIGN STANDARDS BASED ON THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR STANDARDS FOR REHABILITATION OF HISTORIC PROPERTIES.

AND 95% OF THOSE STANDARDS ARE THE SAME WITH JUST A FEW VARIATIONS.

HAVING A SINGLE SET OF HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS REDUCES THAT WILL REMOVE THE NEED TO HAVE NEARLY IDENTICAL DESIGN STANDARDS DEVELOPED THROUGH A VERY LONG PROCESS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

OKAY.

HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS WILL ALSO PROVIDE CLEARER STANDARDS FOR HISTORIC LANDMARK OWNERS AND NATIONAL REGISTER DISTRICT PROPERTY OWNERS WHO USE THE SECRETARY STANDARDS FOR REHABILITATION.

RIGHT NOW THAT'S A GREAT SET OF 10 STANDARDS.

WE'LL SEE THEM IN JUST A MINUTE, BUT THEY'RE ALSO PRETTY VAGUE WHEN FIGURING OUT WHAT'S APPROPRIATE.

IN TERMS OF SPECIFIC PROJECTS, HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS WILL PROVIDE AN EDUCATIONAL TOOL FOR ALL HISTORIC PROPERTY OWNERS OR EVEN PROPERTY OWNERS OF OLD BUILDINGS.

UM, AS YOU HOPEFULLY HAVE SEEN IN REVIEWING THEM, THE STANDARDS, UH, INCLUDE, UH, NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS OF GOOD PRACTICES AND AN ILLUSTRATED GLOSSARY.

IN THE PAST, WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO REQUIRE INDIVIDUALS, HISTORIC DISTRICT APPLICATE APPLICANT TEAMS TO INCLUDE ILLUSTRATIONS SINCE IT ADDS COST.

AND THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT WE AS A CITY HAVE BEEN WANTING TO ADDITIONALLY, IMPOSE ON WHAT, ON A PROCESS THAT ALREADY REQUIRES A LOT OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES.

ONE SET OF HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS WILL PROVIDE CONSISTENT STANDARDS FOR PROJECT REVIEW BY COMMISSIONERS AND STAFF, AT LEAST FOR HISTORIC LANDMARKS, NATIONAL REGISTER DISTRICT PROPERTIES AND FUTURE HISTORIC DISTRICTS, TO BE CLEAR EXISTING HISTORIC DISTRICTS WILL BE ABLE TO ADOPT THESE STANDARDS IF THEY CHOOSE OTHERWISE THEIR EXISTING STANDARDS WILL REMAIN.

AND FINALLY, ONE SET OF HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS FOLLOWS GOOD PRACTICES IN PRESERVATION.

IT'S SOMETHING THAT MANY OTHER PRESERVATION PROGRAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY DO, INCLUDING THE LEADING HISTORIC PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, AS YOU, UH, LIKELY KNOWS THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR STANDARDS FOR REHABILITATION OF HISTORIC PROPERTIES ESTABLISHED THE FOUNDATION FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION PROGRAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AND AS I MENTIONED, THEY ALSO FORM THE BASIS FOR THESE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS.

NEXT SLIDE, BECAUSE THE SECRETARY OF THE SECRETARY STANDARDS INCLUDE A LOT OF WORDS THAT CAN SEND VERY SIMILAR TO EACH OTHER.

UM, I LIKE TO BOIL THEM DOWN TO A FEW OVERARCHING PRINCIPLES THAT, AND THESE APPLY THROUGHOUT THESE DORK DESIGN STANDARDS, BASICALLY TO PRESERVE BUILDINGS AS THEY DEVELOPED OVER TIME TO MAINTAIN AND REPAIR HISTORIC MATERIALS.

IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE, REPLACE IN KIND AND ON A LIMITED BASIS, AND FINALLY FOR NEW WORK ADDITIONS OR NEW BUILDINGS, IT SHOULD, THEY SHOULD BE COMPATIBLE WITH IN DIFFERENTIATED FROM HISTORY BUILDINGS.

NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

SO HERE'S THE CHAPTER OUTLINE OF THE HISTORIC DESIGN NINE STANDARDS, UM, BLAZE PAST THIS NEXT SLIDE, I'M GOING TO TRY TO ONLY

[00:10:01]

HIT THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PROPOSED, THE RECOMMENDED STANDARDS THAT BASICALLY THOSE THREE ARE OVERARCHING PRINCIPLES AND THE SECRETARY STANDARDS AS A WHOLE FORM, THE FOUNDATION OF A HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS AS APPLICABLE TO EACH, UM, CHAPTER NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

SO NOW THE HIGHLIGHTS, THE WORKING GROUP PRIORITIZED MAKING THE STANDARDS EASY TO USE FOR EVERYONE, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE, BECAUSE THE STANDARDS APPLIED TO CONTRIBUTING AND NON-CONTRIBUTING PROPERTIES IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

THERE ARE CHARTS AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH CHAPTER SHOWING WHICH STANDARDS ARE REQUIRED AND WHICH ARE RECOMMENDED FOR EACH PROJECT TYPE AND FOR EACH PROPERTY, THE TYPE, THERE ARE ALSO CHARTS ILLUSTRATING THE HISTORIC REVIEW PROCESS AND WHAT PROJECTS QUALIFY FOR ADMINISTRATIVE VERSUS COMMISSION REVIEW, WHICH IS A SUBJECT OF WHICH CAN BE A SUBJECT OF GREAT CONFUSION.

THE STANDARD USE ACCESSIBLE LANGUAGE AND HAVE CLEAR GRAPHICS AND CONSISTENT SYMBOLS TO HELP PEOPLE NAVIGATE THE DOCUMENT AND RECOGNIZE KEY THEMES.

THE TWO SYMBOLS SHOWN HERE REPRESENT SUSTAINABILITY MEASURES, THE GREEN SUN AND LE UH, ADDITIONAL STANDARDS AND NOTES FOR HISTORIC LANDMARKS, WHICH IS A YELLOW STAR.

AND THE PDF OF THE FILE INCLUDES HYPERLINKS TO HELP PEOPLE EASILY GET AROUND THE DOCUMENT.

SO FOR CROSS-REFERENCING AND ALSO TO GET TO OUTSIDE RESOURCE WEBSITES LIKE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE PRESERVATION BRIEF, NEXT SLIDE.

SO NOW I'M GOING TO DIVE BRIEFLY INTO SPECIFIC CHAPTERS COVERING KIND OF OVERARCHING GOALS AND HOPED FOR OUTCOMES.

THERE'S A MODERN CODES AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY SECTION TO ADDRESS HOW HISTORIC PRESERVATION PROJECTS INTERSECT WITH ENERGY AND EFFICIENCY AND ACCESSIBILITY CODES.

THIS SECTION ALSO TRIES TO BROADEN THE PERSPECTIVE FROM SHORT-TERM FIXES LIKE WINDOW REPLACEMENT, UH, IN A COUPLE OF WAYS FIRST BY ACKNOWLEDGING THE LONGTERM SUSTAINABILITY SUSTAINABILITY BENEFITS, NOT ONLY JUST KEEPING BUILDINGS STANDING, BUT ALSO PRESERVING HIGH-QUALITY HISTORIC COMPONENTS.

AND SECOND, BY FOCUSING ON THE HIGH IMPACT HIGH RATE OF RETURN ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURES, WHICH ARE TYPICALLY NOT WINDOW REPLACEMENT, THERE'S A SPECIAL SUBSECTION ON WINDOWS AND ENERGY CONSERVATION IN THE WINDOWS SECTION OF THE REPAIR AND ALTERATIONS CHAPTER.

SINCE WE KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE WILL GO STRAIGHT TO THE SECTION THAT RELATES TO THEIR PROJECT, AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE THERE UNDERSTANDING THIS INFORMATION AS WELL.

NEXT SLIDE, THE REPAIR AND ALTERATIONS CHAPTER HAS A FEW GOALS.

A BIG ONE IS TO HELP PEOPLE BETTER UNDERSTAND THEIR BUILDINGS.

I HAVE, AS YOU CAN SEE, FLIPPING THROUGH THAT CHAPTER AND A LITTLE BIT HERE ON THE SCREEN, THE CHAPTER INCLUDES A LOT OF DIAGRAMS SHOWING BUILDING PARTS AND ROOF WINDOW AND DOOR TYPES.

MOST SECTIONS IN THE CHAPTER INCLUDE A SHORT DISCUSSION ON MAINTENANCE, WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY THE MAINTENANCE AND PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC MATERIALS CHAPTER.

TOWARDS THE END OF THE DOCUMENT, WE ALSO WANTED TO PRESERVE, TO PROVIDE DIVERSE EXAMPLES OF BUILDINGS TO BROADEN PEOPLE'S UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT OUR HISTORIC BUILDING LOOKS LIKE.

SO FOR EXAMPLE, UH, THE TWO PHOTOS ON THE BOTTOM LEFT PART OF THE SCREEN, UM, ILLUSTRATE A DISCUSSION ON PORCHES, UM, BUILDING, UH, VERY DIFFERENT VINTAGES.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THERE ARE SEPARATE CHAPTERS FOR RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL ADDITIONS THAT THEIR GOALS ARE SIMILAR TO PROVIDE A DIVERSE SET OF GOOD EXAMPLES, AND TO CLEARLY ILLUSTRATE THE STANDARDS.

BOTH WHAT'S RECOMMENDED IN GREEN, AND WHAT'S NOT RECOMMENDED IN RED.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UH, LIKEWISE THERE ARE SEPARATE CHAPTERS FOR RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION, BUT THEY ALSO HAVE A NEW CONSTRUCTION.

THEY ALSO HAVE SIMILAR GOALS, THE WORKING GROUP AND THE DOWNTOWN COMMERCIAL FOCUS GROUP THAT WAS CONVENED TO FOCUS ON COMMERCIAL BUILDING STANDARDS FELT THAT IT WAS REALLY ESSENTIAL TO ACKNOWLEDGE MARKET REALITIES AND LOCAL PRIORITIES AROUND DENSITY.

THIS IS SHOWN IN THE RESIDENTIAL STANDARDS THROUGH DISCUSSION OF HOW SCALE MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS AND ADU AND IN THE COMMERCIAL STANDARDS WITH THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT NEW BUILDINGS MAY BE MUCH LARGER AND TALLER THAN SURROUNDING HISTORIC BUILDINGS AND GUIDANCE ON HOW TO ADDRESS THOSE SITUATIONS.

NEXT SLIDE, THE STORE'S DESIGN STANDARDS INCLUDE AN ILLUSTRATED GLOSSARY THAT WE HOPE WILL HELP PEOPLE NOT ONLY TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE STANDARDS, BUT ALSO GET TO KNOW THEIR BUILDINGS BETTER.

YOU KNOW, WHETHER IT'S PARTS OF A WINDOW OR DIFFERENT MATERIALS USED FOR CITING.

UM, NEXT SLIDE.

AND FINALLY, I WANT TO GO OVER THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS.

AS I MENTIONED, THE AND MANY OF, YOU KNOW, REMEMBER THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION FORMED THE DESIGN STANDARDS WORKING GROUP IN SEPTEMBER, 2018, THAT FALL WHAT WE STAFF WORKED WITH A, A UT GRADUATE CLASS IN HISTORIC PRESERVATION TO SURVEY NATIONAL

[00:15:01]

BEST PRACTICES AND DESIGN STANDARDS.

AND THEN IN EARLY 2019, THE WORKING GROUP CONVENED AND DID A DEEP DIVE INTO THOSE BEST PRACTICES THAT WERE IDENTIFIED BY THE UT STUDENTS.

SMALL SUBCOMMITTEES OF THE WORKING GROUP CREATED A DRAFT CHAPTERS THAT WERE KNITTED TOGETHER AND REVIEWED A COUPLE OF TIMES.

AND THEN IN JUNE OF 2019, A DRAFT WAS RELEASED FOR COMMUNITY REVIEW.

WE RECEIVED MORE THAN 175 COMMENTS ON THE DRAFT FROM COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS.

AND OVER THE LAST 16 MONTHS, THE WORKING GROUP HAS REVISED THE STANDARDS GRAPHICS HAVE BEEN ADDED AND THE DOCUMENT WAS LAID OUT AND FORMATTED.

THE WORKING GROUP HAS FINE, HAD FORMALLY RECOMMENDED THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS TO THE HLC, SATISFYING ITS CHARGE.

AND, UM, IF NOW IT'S UP TO Y'ALL, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT A RESOLUTION RECOMMENDING THAT COUNCIL TAKE UP THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS FOR CONSIDERATION AND ADOPTION.

UM, IF YOU DO MAKE THAT, THAT IF YOU DO ADOPT THAT RESOLUTION, UH, STAFF WILL DO PRESENT SIMILAR PRESENTATIONS OR BRIEFINGS AT RELATED, UH, BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS, THE DESIGN COMMISSION, THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND THE ZONING AND PLANNING COMMISSION.

AND THEN IT WILL GO TO COUNCIL, WHICH WILL MAKE, UM, MAKE THE FINAL DECISION.

AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, IF COUNCIL ADOPTS THE STANDARDS, THEY WILL APPLY TO ALL HISTORIC LANDMARKS, PROPERTIES AND NATIONAL REGISTERED DISTRICT ON AN ADVISORY BASIS AND ALL FUTURE HISTORIC DISTRICTS, UM, WHICH IF THEY CHOOSE, CAN ADOPT A SUPPLEMENT TO THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS WITH MORE SPECIFIC STANDARDS.

FINALLY, UH, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

FINALLY, THE DESIGN STANDARDS WORKING GROUP HAS POWERED THIS PROCESS SINCE 2018, IF IT'S BEEN A LONG ROAD.

AND I JUST WANT TO GIVE ALL THE FOLKS, UM, IN THE WORKING GROUP, TREMENDOUS CREDIT, UH, A FEW COMMISSIONERS AT THIS MEETING HAVE PARTICIPATED VERY ACTIVELY IN THIS PROCESS AND MORE PEOPLE WHO ARE PROBABLY WATCHING ON ATX N WORKING GROUP MEMBERS WERE SELECTED THROUGH AN APPLICATION PROCESS WITH THE GOAL OF HAVING ALL SORTS OF STAKEHOLDERS AT THE TABLE.

AND, UH, THE MEMBERS SHOWED OUTSTANDING DEDICATION THROUGH THE PROCESS OF DRAFTING, REVISING, REVIEWING, REVISING AGAIN, AND REVIEWING AGAIN, UM, AS STAFF, WE FEEL REALLY HONORED TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FACILITATE THE PROCESS, AND WE FEEL CONFIDENT IN PUTTING FORWARD THESE STANDARDS BECAUSE THEY WERE DEVELOPED BOTH BY AND FOR THE COMMUNITY.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

UM, DO YOU HAVE ANY, ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME, KARA? WOULD YOU LIKE THAT, UM, RESOLUTION AT THIS TIME? YEAH.

IF THE COMMISSION IS WILLING, I THINK THERE ALSO IS ONE, UH, MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC WHO IS JUST TO SPEAK ON THE HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS.

AND MAYBE YOU CAN ASK FOR A NORMAL, UM, I DON'T THINK I WOULD.

YEAH.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME AND THEN THAT PERSON COULD SPEAK IN, IN THE COMMISSION, COULD, COULD, UH, HAVE A DISCUSSION.

DOES THAT SOUND GOOD? I SAW COMMISSIONER HIMSELF AND YEP.

GO AHEAD.

WELL TO THE STAFF AND TO THE WORKING GROUP, THIS IS VERY TIMELY AND VERY IMPRESSIVE, EVEN A QUICK OVERVIEW OR GIVE US A REALLY DO APPRECIATE THAT.

UH, IF I COULD ALSO ADD THE DOWNTOWN COMMISSION TO YOUR, UH, CHECK OF COMMISSIONS, I HATE TO MAKE MORE PRESENTATIONS, BUT I THINK THAT GROUP WOULD ALSO BE VERY WELL-INFORMED AS WE'VE RAISED THE ISSUE ABOUT THE THREATENED TO HISTORIC PROPERTIES IN THE AREA.

THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.

UM, AND THANK YOU FOR, THANKS FOR MAKING SURE THAT WE DIDN'T KNOW WHO LOOKED AT.

I'LL DEFINITELY ADD THEM TO THE LIST.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? KUDOS TO KARA FOR SHEPHERDING THIS THROUGH, EVEN THOUGH SHE'S MOVED ON TO ANOTHER DEPARTMENT AND, UM, SHE WAS REALLY THE FORCE THAT PUSHED US ALONG HERE.

UM, I WOULD ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO DRAFT SUCH A REBEL ON REVOLUTION RESOLUTION.

LET'S LET'S HAVE, LET'S KEEP THEM, MAYBE WE THOUGHT, AND THEN RETURN TO THE, I LIKE THE, I LIKE THE DIRECTION YOU'RE GOING THOUGH.

I DON'T WANT TO, I DON'T WANT TO STOP YOU FOR TOO LONG.

OKAY.

WHILE WE ASK THE PERSON TO SPEAK, BE THINKING OF A RESOLUTION, UM, IS THERE A PERSON FROM ON THE LINE, UH, WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO THE DESIGN STANDARDS? WE ONLY HAVE ONE.

ALISON, ALISON, IT'S YOUR TURN NOW, CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY? YES.

THANK

[00:20:01]

YOU.

UH, THIS IS ALISON MCGHEE AND I SERVE ON THE BOARD OF PRESERVATION AUSTIN.

AND I'M SPEAKING TODAY TO RESPECTFULLY SUPPORT AUSTIN'S, UH, HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICES, PROPOSED HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS.

WE COMMEND THE TIME INTENSIVE AND COMMUNITY FOCUSED EFFORTS OF THE WORKING GROUP AND THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE DESIGN STANDARDS WILL INCREASE EQUITY AND ACCESSIBILITY AND AUSTIN'S LOCAL HISTORIC DISTRICT APPLICATION PROCESS.

WE'VE ADOPTED UNDERREPRESENTED HERITAGE AS FISCAL YEAR 21, THIS ADVOCACY PRIORITY IN OUR ORGANIZATION.

AND WE SEE THE CITYWIDE DISASTER DESIGN STANDARDS AS A WAY TO ENCOURAGE MANY GROUPS WHO DO NOT HAVE THE TIME OR MONEY TO DEVELOP UNIQUE STANDARDS FOR THEIR PROPOSED DISTRICTS.

WE ARE OPTIMISTIC THAT THE DESIGN STANDARDS WILL LEAD TO NEW HIS LOCAL HISTORIC DISTRICT APPLICATIONS AND UNDERREPRESENTED AREAS OF AUSTIN.

AT THE SAME TIME, THESE DESIGN STANDARDS WILL STREAMLINE THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION PROCESS FOR CITY STAFF AND ADVOCATES ALIKE BY PROVIDING CLEAR AND CONSISTENT STANDARDS.

THIS WILL CREATE A MORE EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE PROCESS FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE STANDARD SUPPORT THE PRESERVATION OF OUR CITY'S DIVERSE HERITAGE FOR THE PEOPLE OF AUSTIN, IN A WAY THAT'S COMPATIBLE WITH INCREASING DENSITY PRESERVATION.

AUSTIN KNOWS HOW CRUCIAL DENSITY IS FOR AUSTIN FUTURE AND APPRECIATE THAT THE STANDARDS DO NOT DISCOURAGE DENSITY, BUT RATHER RECOGNIZES THAT IT CAN OCCUR ALONGSIDE, ALONGSIDE PRESERVING OUR HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOODS.

WE ENCOURAGE THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION TO SUPPORT THE PROPOSED HISTORIC DESIGN STANDARDS.

WE KNOW THEY WILL BE AN ASSET TO OUR CITY FOR YEARS TO COME.

AND WE ONCE AGAIN, WANT TO RECOGNIZE THE DEDICATION THAT WENT INTO CREATING THESE STANDARDS AND HOPE TO SEE THEM ADOPTED.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SERVICE.

THANK YOU, MS. MCGHEE.

UM, I WOULD NOW ENTERTAIN A RESOLUTION, UH, BASED ON THE COMMENTS OF MS. MCGEE TO SEND TO FORWARD TO THE OTHER COMMISSIONS AND CITY COUNCIL TO APPROVE OR SUPPORT OF THE DESIGN STANDARDS, VICE CHAIR.

UM, UH, I WILL KNOW ALL OF THE, UH, DESIGN STANDARDS AS PRESENTED TO US WITH EXTREME URGENCY, UH, TO THE CITY COUNCIL, UH, THAT THIS IS A TOOL WE REALLY HAVE NEEDED FOR A WHILE.

AND THIS WILL BE AS WAS PRESENTED A SIGNIFICANT RESOURCE THAT WILL ASSIST WITH PRESERVATION FOR A VERY LONG TIME TO COME.

MAYBE WE, UM, USE STAFF COMMENTS AND MS. MCGEE'S COMMENTS TO HAVE STAFF DRESS DRAFTS SUCH A RESOLUTION.

ABSOLUTELY.

YEAH.

YEAH.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.

WE NEED A SECOND.

WE NEED A SECOND POP OF THE CELIO ALEX TOP OF THE CEILING THE SECOND DAY.

IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION DON'T EVERYONE SPEAK AT ONCE? I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE RIGHT HERE ON THE COMMISSION NOW HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE DESIGN STANDARDS IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

SO, UM, YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THEM AND THE REST OF YOU, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES, UH, DON'T HIDE THEM.

UM, BUT I THINK IT'S TIME TO GO FORWARD WITH THIS.

SO CAN WE HAVE A VOTE ON THIS, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, PLEASE SIGNIFY BY RAISING YOUR HAND, ANY OPPOSED NONE IT'S UNANIMOUS.

WE SUPPORT THE DESIGN STANDARDS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, KARA.

THANKS AGAIN.

DO WE HAVE THE AUSTIN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION? UM, FOLKS HERE TO BRIEF US AT THIS TIME, DAVID, GO AHEAD.

UM, AND EXPLAIN WHAT YOUR, WHAT THE CORPORATION IS ABOUT AND GIVE US YOUR SLIDES.

I WOULD SAY THAT THERE MAY BE A DELAY BETWEEN WHAT YOU'RE SAYING AND WHAT WE SEE ON SCREEN.

THERE'S A LITTLE LAG TIME.

OKAY, PLEASE GO RIGHT AHEAD.

I'M GETTING A LOT OF, UH, FEEDBACK.

OKAY.

THAT'S GOOD.

LET ME, LET ME ASK ALL OF THOSE WHO ARE ON THE LINE TO PLEASE MUTE YOURSELVES, UM, SO THAT WE CAN HEAR THE SPEAKER.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

[2B. Austin Economic Development Corp briefing by David Colligan: Presentation and discussion for process to nominate a board member of the Austin Economic Development Corporation in January 2021.]

THANK YOU VERY MUCH CHAIR AND BOARD FOR HAVING HERE THIS EVENING, UH, AND ALSO FOR MAKING SPACE,

[00:25:01]

UH, TO, TO GET THROUGH THIS PRESENTATION QUICKLY.

I KNOW THAT YOU'VE GOT A VERY LONG AGENDA, UH, AND, AND YOU'RE LEAVING SCHOOL VERY LONG.

SO I'LL TRY TO BE AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE.

YOU SHOULD HAVE A COPY OF THE FLIGHT DECK, UH, THAT WE PROVIDED FOR THE AUSTIN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION.

UM, I CAN'T SEE YOUR SCREEN, SO I WILL DO MY BEST TO, TO, TO DESCRIBE WHAT IT IS I SEE IN TERMS OF THE FLIGHTS, AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN STAY ON TASK WITH THE DISCUSSION, UH, BUT IF THERE'S ANY, ANY POINT IN TIME THAT YOU NEED TOMORROW, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO, TO STOP ME.

SO IT'D BE THE FIRST SLIDE THAT WE'LL GO TO THE, THE BACKGROUND POINTS OUT THE RESOLUTIONS IN THE COUNCIL ACTION THAT WAS TAKEN TO DATE, UH, WERE MARIN COUNCIL REQUESTED FOR STAFF TO BRING FORWARD RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE CREATION OF AN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION.

NOW, YOU MAY BE FAMILIAR WITH YOUR WORK IN OTHER COMMUNITIES AROUND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATIONS EXISTING.

THE MARIN COUNCIL WERE MORE FOCUSED ON HAVING A PARTNER AVAILABLE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY THAT WAS OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN THAT COULD EFFICIENTLY WORK WITH US, UH, IN MORE OF A COLLABORATIVE AND HOLISTIC FASHION TO ACHIEVE MORE INCLUSIVE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

UH, SLIDE THREE, NEXT SLIDE.

SO WHAT WE ESSENTIALLY CREATED ON OCTOBER 1ST BY THE APPROVAL OF MARIN COUNCIL FOR THE BYLAWS AND ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION IS THEY CALL IT REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER THAT CAN MOVE QUICKLY.

IT IS OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN, UH, THAT HAD A STRONG INTEREST IN BEING ABLE TO SUPPORT THE VALUE SETS THAT HAVE BEEN ARTICULATED BY MAYOR COUNCIL AND COMMUNITY, AS WELL AS HELPING TO ACHIEVE A HIGHER DEGREE OF VALUE, UH, WITHIN DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS OR OTHER DEVELOPMENT IN WHICH THE CITY MAY NOT HAVE A DIRECT CONNECTION, UH, OVER A PERIOD OF TIME.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS NEW BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION.

WE LOOKED AT 17 DIFFERENT PEER AND ASPIRATIONAL CITIES THAT HAD THIS PARTICULAR TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP WITH AN OUTSIDE ENTITY THAT COULD HELP THEM TO ACHIEVE MORE OF THEIR HOLISTIC ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

NEXT SLIDE, THE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND FAMILY OF THE ORGANIZATION.

UH, SO IN LOOKING AT THE AUSTIN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION, AND EVEN SOME OF THE FOUNDING COUNCIL ACTION, WE WERE ASKED TO BRING FORWARD AN ASSESSMENT OF THE DIFFERENT ENTITIES THAT ALREADY EXISTED WITHIN THE CITY.

AND WITHIN THAT ASSESSMENT.

AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, YOU'LL FIND THAT INFORMATION WITHIN OUR FEASIBILITY STUDY, WE WERE ABLE TO POINT OUT THAT THE CITY HAS CREATED A NUMBER OF THESE ENTITIES OVER AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME AS A CITY, BUT A NUMBER OF THEM WERE CREATED A SINGLE PURPOSE OR AN ENTITY THAT WAS DESIGNED TO SUPPORT A PARTICULAR PROJECT.

SO THE CITY HAS NOT IN OUR ISSUE.

WE'VE SEEN, STEPPED AWAY TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE MORE OF AN OVERARCHING ENTITY THAT WAS MORE COLLABORATIVE IN NATURE.

AND SO WHAT WE'VE RECOMMENDED FROM ERIN COUNCIL WAS TO DO SO BY BEING ABLE TO DRAW TOGETHER A FAMILY OF INSTITUTES THAT CREATES THIS ORGANIZATION.

SO NEXT FIGHT GET EXISTING ENTITIES THAT ARE ALREADY WITHIN THE STATE.

A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THE AUSTIN INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION.

ONE WAS GOING DORMANT OVER THE YEARS, BUT IT DOES HAVE PARTICULAR BONDING DEFORMITY UNDER WHICH THE ALSO IN ECONOMICS, BUT ALL MY CORPORATION COULD USE TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS THE, THE FINANCIAL GAP IN ANY PARTICULAR PROJECTS THAT WERE NEGOTIATING DIFFERENT COMMUNITY BENEFITS OR CIVIC INFRASTRUCTURE TO ACHIEVE MORE OF THOSE INCLUSIVE OUTCOMES NOW IN COUNCILS LOOKS TO ACHIEVE, BUT THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION.

SO FOR STRUCTURE MEMBERS OF THE TRANSPORTATION CODE, WHICH ALLOWS US A PRETTY HIGH DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY IN TERMS OF WHAT WE WERE LOOKING TO ACHIEVE, IT ALSO HAS FIVE OH ONE C THREE SETUPS.

SO WHEN WE START TO LOOK AT CREATING NEW ENTITIES, LIKE THE CULTURAL TRUST, THAT'S BEEN SOMETHING, UM, TALKED ABOUT WIDELY BY MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

UM, AND WE'LL TALK A LITTLE MORE PATIENT.

WE CAN CREATE THAT ENTITY UNDERNEATH THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION.

AND WE DO HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THE FUNDING, THE RAISING, THE FUNDS, TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THOSE INITIATIVES.

NOW, MANY PEOPLE OFTEN ASK, WELL, WHAT'S THE GOAL OF THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT AND HOW IS IT GOING TO WORK WITH THIS ENTITY? OF COURSE, THE, THE REDEVELOPMENT DIVISION WITHIN OUR, IT HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE STATES FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.

IN FACT, THAT'S HOW THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT WAS STARTED.

UH, WE HAD IN ANOTHER CITY OWNED ASSETS AND STILL DO THAT.

WE WERE LOOKING TO BRING INTO COMMERCE, THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT, AND REALLY THE REDEVELOPMENT DIVISION WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE AS THE CONDUIT, AS THIS ENTITY WILL HAVE AN AGREEMENT THAT WILL BE ARTICULATED BETWEEN US IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN THAT THEY WILL, EXCUSE ME,

[00:30:01]

DAVID, DAVID, I'M SORRY TO INTERRUPT.

YOU'RE KIND OF BREAKING UP AND YOUR VOLUME IS VERY LOW.

I'M NOT ABLE TO HEAR YOU CLEARLY OR DISTINCTLY.

UM, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S AN ARTIFACT OF THE, OF THE PHONE OR WHAT WE'D BE SPEAK CLOSER TO THE PHONE.

GO AHEAD, PLEASE.

I'M SORRY.

AWESOME ADVICE.

WE CAN HEAR YOU FINE.

JUST TRY AND SPEAK LOUDER.

OKAY.

UH, SO, UH, I'LL, I'LL GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, LOOKING AT OUR ORGANIZATIONAL CHART, UH, WHICH IS SLIDE SIX.

SO AGAIN, THERE WILL CONTINUE TO BE OVERSIGHT, UH, AND INTERACTION OR ENGAGEMENT WITH MAYOR AND COUNCIL AS THE, THE BOARD WILL BE APPOINTED BY MARION COUNCIL AND THE PRESIDENT AND CEO THAT'S SELECTED WITH THE BOARD'S INPUT WILL BE RESPONDING BACK TO MARIN COUNCIL WITH THE PRESIDENT OF ABC ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.

THAT'S ACTUALLY ONE OF THE TERMS FROM WITHIN THE AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THIS INSTITUTION AND THE CITY, UH, OR AT LEAST WITHIN THE FOUNDATIONAL DOCUMENTS FOR THE CREATION OF THE ENTITY, WHERE WE WILL COMING BACK TO THE CITY ON AN ANNUAL BASIS TO REVIEW THE, THE PROGRAMS OR PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN EXECUTED.

AND THEN THOSE THAT ARE FORTHCOMING IN THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR, YOU CAN SEE HERE, THE DEGREE OF SKILLSETS OR EXPERTISE THAT WILL BE WITHIN THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION.

AND THIS IS A PARTICULAR INTEREST, ESPECIALLY FOR SUPPORTING MORE OF THAT COLLABORATIVE BANDWIDTH, BECAUSE WE CAN SEE A NUMBER OF THESE PROFESSIONALS SUPPORTING A VARIETY OF OTHER PROJECTS AROUND THE COMMUNITY IN INSTITUTIONS, OR WITH DIFFERENT ENTITIES THAT DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE THESE SKILLSETS.

AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE MORE EXTENSIVELY NATIONAL SLIDE SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE, THE GOVERNANCE OF THE AEDC BOARD, THAT'S DEFINED EACH OF THE 20 PLACES THAT HAVE BEEN, UM, APPROVED BY AMERICAN COUNCIL FOR THE BOARD AND SINCE MARION COUNCIL FOR THE FIRST TIME CREATED THAT ONE RIBBON BOARD, THEY ARE LOOKING TO DIFFERENT NOMINATING BODIES FROM WITHIN THE COMMUNITY TO SUGGEST A NOMINATION THAT THEY WOULD APPROVE TO THE BOARD.

SO YOU CAN SEE, PLUS ONE THROUGH 20 HERE, THE FIRST SIX PLACES ARE IN RED FONT OR THOSE SEATS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN FILLED AND SERVING AS OUR INTERIM BOARD MEMBERS.

UH, THE REMAINING PLACES HAVE, UH, ARE KIND OF A MIX.

SOME OF THEM HAVE ALREADY BEEN NAMED IN TERMS OF THE INSTITUTION THAT WILL BE THE NOMINATING BODY, OTHERS WHO ARE STILL WORKING WITH, BUT WHICH YOU'LL SEE ON THIS LIST IS PLACEMENT.

MY TEAM SEEKS TO A LOCAL HISTORIC PRESERVATION, UH, AND THAT IS THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A NOMINATION FROM THE HISTORIC LAND COMMISSION, UH, SUPPORTED.

NOW, WHEN YOU WERE THINKING THROUGH THAT NOMINATION, UH, WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU TO THINK THROUGH A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT LENS OR FILTERS.

THE FIRST IS FOR THIS INDIVIDUAL THAT SHE NOMINATED TO HAVE STRONG UNDERSTANDING AND BACKGROUND OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION, AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY THAT EXISTS WITHIN THE CITY FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND THE DIFFERENT SERVICES OR FACETS OF THE COMMUNITY.

THEY, THEY THINK THEY NEED AN INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SPACE THAT YOU ALL SERVE THAT NEXT FILTER FOR YOU TO THINK THROUGH.

ARE THEY ACTUAL SKILLSETS THE BACKGROUND OR THE EXPERTISE THAT THAT INDIVIDUAL BRINGS FORWARD FROM THEIR PROFESSIONAL WORK, MAYBE WITHIN REAL ESTATE PLANNING, MORE INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT OR PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP.

OF COURSE, IF YOUR PRESERVATION.

SO WITHIN THAT FIRST PARAGRAPH, WE TAKE YOU THROUGH SOME OF THOSE DIFFERENT FILTERS AS WELL.

NEXT SLIDE, LOOKING AT GOVERNANCE PART TWO, YOU CAN SEE HERE UNDERNEATH THE MIDDLE OF THE STATE PROJECT THREE TYPES, WE PRETTY CLEARLY ARTICULATE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES IN WHICH YOUR NOMINATION WILL BE SEEN FROM A BOARD LEVEL AND LOOKING TO APPROVE OR HELP SUPPORT, BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE VERY MUCH A WORKING BOARD RATHER THAN ONE THAT IS POLITICALLY AGILE OR ASKED TO BE ABLE TO WORK POLITICALLY.

SO THAT PERSON WILL BE SEEING HOW IT IS WE DEFINE LEASE ADMINISTRATION, TRANSACTION SUPPORT, AND PUBLIC DEVELOPMENT.

SO WE ASK THAT YOU ALSO THINK THROUGH, YOU KNOW, HOW IT IS YOUR, YOUR NOMINATION, UH, WOULD BE FAMILIAR WITH THIS SPACE AND HELPING TO, TO PROVIDE SOME, SOME CHECKPOINTS AND ANY INPUT OR FEEDBACK SLIDE NINE, THE PROPOSED PROJECT.

THIS IS AN OUTDATED THOSE BY FAR, BUT IT SERVES AS A GOOD INVENTORY OF POTENTIAL PROJECTS IN WHICH THIS ENTITY COULD SUPPORT MORE COLLABORATIVE BANDWIDTH.

AND IF WE MOVE TO SLIDE 10,

[00:35:01]

WHICH SPEAKS TO FOUR EXAMPLES FROM THAT PROJECT WAS I CAN TAKE A FEW MOMENTS TO ALSO DIAL INTO SOME OF THOSE PROJECTS WE LEAD WITH MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE MPP AND SUPPORTING THESE PROJECTS, THIS UP CENTRAL WATERFRONT, WE SEE AS A PRIME OPPORTUNITY TO SUSTAIN AND SUPPORT THIS ENTITY, UM, AND, AND BEING A CATALYTIC PROJECT FOR THE ENTITY FOR YEARS TO COME.

THIS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION MUST BE SELF-SUSTAINING.

AND IN FACT, MAYOR AND COUNCIL HAD ONLY THREE YEARS OF INITIAL FUNDING TO SUPPORT THIS ENTITY AND THE AMOUNT THAT THEY WOULD BE SEEDING THIS ENTITY WITH IS NOT GOING TO BE ANNOUNCED TO THE SAME FOR A LONGTERM PERIOD OF TIME.

SO THE ENTITY THAT SERVES TO SUPPORT IN TRANSACTIONS THAT ARE VERY UNIQUE, MUCH LIKE SOUTH CENTRAL WATER PRODUCT, WHICH IS A LARGER DISTRICT BASED AREA THAT HAS A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT PROPERTY OWNERS, COMMERCIAL, RESIDENTIAL, PRIVATE, ALSO NONPROFITS, ALL OF THE THINGS WITHIN THAT SPACE.

SO THE CITY HAS LIMITED RESOURCES OR ASSETS IN THAT AREA.

SO THERE'S A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT TOOLS OR RESOURCES THAT ARE NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO REALIZE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT WITHIN SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT.

AND THIS ENTITY COULD CERTAINLY STAND AS A PARTNER TO THE CITY TO BE ABLE TO NEGOTIATE WITH THOSE POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENTAL WILL TAKE PLACE TO INCORPORATE THE VALUES THAT WE SEEK.

NO ONE REALLY GREAT CROSS SUBSIDIZATION IS THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH A UNIVERSITY LIKE HOUSTON TILLOTSON.

WE'RE LOOKING AT THE POTENTIAL FOR CREATING A MASTER PLAN THAT CAN HELP THEM TO, TO PROFIT OR CAPITALIZE, BUT ALSO SECURE THE VALUES OF THEIR UNIVERSITY WITH THEIR STUDENTS AND THE COMMUNITY THAT'S ADJACENT OR SURROUNDING THE UNIVERSITY, BECAUSE THAT'S INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO THEM, BUT THIS ENTITY COULD BRING FORWARD SKILL SETS AND EXPERTISE TO SUPPORT THEM THROUGH THE PROCESS AND THE NEGOTIATION ONE, THEN THE TRANSACTION ITSELF.

UH, SO WE GAINED CROSS SUBSIDIZATION JUST BETWEEN THOSE TWO PROJECTS, AS WELL AS THE CREATION OF A CULTURAL TRUST, WHICH IS A TOP OF MIND FOR BEING ABLE TO FIND SUSTAINABLE AND STABILITY, UM, FOR STAYS, ESPECIALLY AS AFFORDABILITY WAS IMPACTING THE CREATIVE SECTORS OF BOSTON WELL BEFORE COVID, AND NOW EVEN MORE BECAUSE OF COVID, UM, ANOTHER AREA LOOKING AT MORE OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENTS OR INFRASTRUCTURE THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN CERTAIN PARTS OF OUR CITY WILL BE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT, PRIMARILY FOCUSING IN ON THE HIGH QUALITY CHILDCARE THAT NEEDS TO EXIST WITHIN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE CITY, ESPECIALLY AS IT CORRELATES TODAY MOST CLOSELY WITH WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS AND BEING ABLE TO PUT FAMILIES BACK TO WORK, UM, BY HAVING SOME OF THOSE, UH, CIVIC INFRASTRUCTURE AVAILABLE IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY, UH, SLIDE 11, LOOKING AT OUR NEXT STEPS, JUST OUTLINES.

OUR NEXT STEP SAYS, UH, WE LOOK TO BRING FORWARD THE, THE CREATION OF ENTITY AT VERY FAST PACE.

I WILL TELL YOU, WE ARE CONTINUING TO WORK WITH A CONSULTANT THROUGH THIS PROCESS, AND WE ARE BRINGING ON BOARD, UH, SPECIALTIES TO START PROJECT DEVELOPMENT IMMEDIATELY.

ACTUALLY, WE HAVE STARTED THOSE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT MEETINGS OVER THE COURSE OF THIS WEEK, BUT WE ARE HAVING THESE TYPES OF CONNECTIONS GOING THROUGH THIS INFORMATION WITH THE DIFFERENT NOMINATING BODIES THAT WE'RE GOING TO LOOK TO BRING FORWARD FOR APPROVAL ON DECEMBER 3RD, SORRY.

UH, SO THAT INFORMATION WILL BE MADE PUBLIC, HOPEFULLY BY THE END OF THIS WEEK, AS WE LOOK TO BRING FORWARD STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION FOR FILLING THOSE DIFFERENT NOMINATING BODIES ON THE BOARD, WE'LL HAVE TO THEN UPDATE THE BYLAWS.

BUT AT THAT POINT IN TIME, THE FOLLOWING DECEMBER 3RD, WE WOULD THEN TURN INTO EACH ONE OF THOSE NOMINATING BODIES TO SUPPORT THEM IN THEIR NOMINATION PROCESS.

SO WE COULD LAND ON A NOMINATION THERE SPEAKING, PLEASE MUTE YOURSELVES.

SO WE CAN LOOK TO, TO SUPPORT THEIR PROCESS, TO LAND ON A NOMINATION BY THE END OF JANUARY.

AND MOST SPECIFICALLY THE FRIDAY, JANUARY 22ND, THE GOAL IS TO PACK THEIR INFORMATION ON EACH OF THE NOMINEES TO BRING FORWARD FROM ERIN COUNCIL TO APPROVE THEM TO BE WARY 18.

SO WE CAN IMMEDIATELY MOVE TO HAVE OUR FIRST BOARD MEETING.

AND THE IMMEDIATE ACTION THAT WE WILL BE LOOKING TO TAKE IS THE FORMATION OF CERTAIN AUTHORITIES ON THE BOARD TO BE ABLE TO LOOK TO HIRE ON THE FIRST PRESIDENT AND CEO.

SO THE FINAL SLIDE JUST HELPS TO LAY OUT THE, UH,

[00:40:01]

THE, THE COMMISSION SELECTION CRITERIA, REALLY.

UH, SO SLIDE 12, UH, IT GOES THROUGH SOME OF THE INFORMATION THAT I'VE ALREADY INCLUDED.

AND SO MAYBE A WHOLE GRAB WHO IS THE ACTING DIRECTOR FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IS THERE TO ALSO SUPPORT YOU IN TERMS OF THE PROCESS, UH, THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO HELP TO SUPPORT.

SO THE CONDITIONS THAT ARE SUPPORTING THIS ENTITY THROUGH NOMINATION ALL HAVE A STREAMLINED VERSION OF THE PROCESS, ESPECIALLY FOR THE INITIAL YEAR, UH, BECAUSE THE DENOMINATION YOU BRING FORWARD WILL SERVE ONLY A ONE-YEAR TERM AND THEN WE'LL NEED TO BE REFILLED ELECTED, UH, OR YOU WILL BRING PAUL THE NEW NOMINATION, THEN JUMP ON TECH THREE-YEAR TERM.

WE'RE LOOKING TO STAGGER THE TERMS, UH, AND, AND ONE OF THE FIRST OFF WOULD BE OUR COMMISSION-BASED, WHICH WILL GIVE YOU A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME TO BE ABLE TO REDEFINE YOUR PROCESS.

IF YOU CHOOSE PEOPLE OFTEN ASK THE AMOUNT OF TIME THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL WOULD BE WORKING.

UM, I THINK WE CLEARLY SAY HERE, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN ANTICIPATE AT LEAST ONE HOUR PER MONTH TO, TO BE ABLE TO CONNECT WITH THE FULL BOARD AND FOR THE BOARD MEETINGS, BUT OF COURSE THIS WOULD BE A WORKING BOARD AND AS MOST BOARDS YOU WILL HAVE OUR EXECUTIVE SUITES.

UH, SO THE PRESIDENT TREASURER, SECRETARY OTHER SEATS, UH, SO IF THE PERSON WHO YOU NOMINATED IS INTERESTED IN SERVING IN THAT CAPACITY, THEY CAN ANTICIPATE ADDITIONAL TIME.

SO THERE, YOU WILL ALSO A NUMBER OF WORKING COMMITTEES.

UH, I MENTIONED THE CULTURAL TRUST BEING ONE PARTICULAR COMMITTEE.

WE'LL ALSO BE LOOKING AT, UH, THE, UH, COMMITTEE HERE AROUND THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT.

UH, AND I'M SURE THERE WILL BE OTHERS THAT WILL COME OVER A PERIOD OF TIME.

SO IF YOUR NOMINATION IS INCLINED TO WORK IN THOSE PARTICULAR SPACES, UM, YOU KNOW, THERE'LL BE ADDITIONAL TIME THAT THEY WOULD BE SERVING, UH, WITHIN CAPACITY AS WELL.

SO THAT, UH, IS MY FORMAL PRESENTATION.

AGAIN, SOME RABBITS HERE TO HELP YOU TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS AS WE'VE ALREADY DISCUSSED WITH THE MUSIC AND THE ARTS COMMISSION.

SO YOU CAN FEEL MORE CONFIDENT THAT WE CAN ACHIEVE OUR GOAL OF HAVING A NOMINATION BOOK FORWARD BY THE END OF JANUARY.

SOME OF YOU THANK YOU, DAVID.

UM, AS DAVID HAS MENTIONED, AND WE'VE MET WITH CHAIR MEYERS EARLIER THIS WEEK, STREAMLINE AND HAVE A CONSISTENT PROCESS, WE WOULD RECOMMEND THAT EACH COMMISSIONER, UH, BRING FORTH A RECOMMENDATION AND THAT THE COMMISSION DEVELOP A WORKING GROUP TO VET THE RESUMES AND APPLICATIONS, AND THEN BRING BACK ONE OR TWO RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE FULL LANDMARK COMMISSION FOR APPROVAL.

BUT AGAIN, FOR THE LANDMARK COMMISSION TO DEVELOP A WORKING GROUP TO ANALYZE, UM, NOMINEES BROUGHT FORTH BY EACH ONE OF THE COMMISSIONERS ONE OR TWO IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, HOPEFULLY, UH, VOTE IN JANUARY SO THAT WE CAN TAKE THAT NOMINATION TO COUNCIL IN FEBRUARY.

AND SO WE WILL BE GETTING THE CHAIR, I ONE PAGER AGAIN, ON THOSE CRITERIA THAT DAVID HAS TALKED ABOUT SO THAT EACH COMMISSIONER CAN HAVE IT AND, UM, HAVE A THOUGHT ABOUT WHO THEY WOULD WANT TO BRING FORTH.

AND IT COULD BE THE COMMISSIONER THAT'S ON YOUR COMMISSION, UH, THAT YOU WANT TO BRING FORTH, BUT THAT IS THE STREAMLINED PROCESS THAT WE ARE HOPING THAT YOU WILL SELECT TO YOU, BUT THE SPEAKER, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD.

PHIL KNOW-HOW ACTING DIRECTOR OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT.

THANK YOU.

I WONDER, SORRY.

THIS IS KARE.

I WONDER, UH, MS. HOLT MENTIONED A WORKING GROUP.

I WONDER IF THAT WOULD BE A ROLE FOR THE PRESERVATION PLAN COMMITTEE TO MEET ON AN AD HOC BASIS.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA.

UM, IF ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THAT COMMITTEE, UM, FOR THIS, UH, WHAT WE'RE DOING IS EVERYONE IN THE, ON THE COMMISSION CAN THINK OF, UM, PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE SUITED FOR THIS POSITION.

IT WILL BE A PERMANENT POSITION.

UM, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE FROM THE COMMISSION THAT CAN BE FROM SOMEONE OUTSIDE WITH THE QUALIFICATIONS THAT THEY PRESENTED, AND THEN WE WILL, UM, THERE'LL BE AN APPLICATION AND WE WILL REVIEW THE APPLICATIONS AND, UM, RECOMMEND SOMEONE TO, FROM THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION TO BE THE PERMANENT MEMBER OF THIS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COURT.

DO WE NEED TO DO ANYTHING FURTHER AT THIS TIME, OR CAN WE DISCUSS THIS LATER, UH, AFTER THE PUBLIC HEARINGS?

[00:45:02]

YEAH.

UH, THE STATE, UH, I THINK THIS CAN BE DONE AFTERWARDS.

THIS IS A BRIEFING THAT DOESN'T REQUIRE ANY, UH, ACTION THIS EVENING.

SO I INFORMATION TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION.

IF Y'ALL WANT TO DO SOMETHING, I WOULD SUGGEST THAT WE GET THE PUBLIC HEARINGS UNDERWAY AND THEN PUT THIS AT THE END.
