AND, UM, THEY REALLY HAVE OFFERED US, UH, THE DIVERSE KIND OF VIEWPOINTS THAT WE NEED TO BE A STRONG COMMISSION.

AND I, I AM SO HELPFUL FOR, UH, COMMISSIONER SEEGER.

MANY TIMES WE HAVE TALKED ON THE PHONE LATE EVENINGS, YOU KNOW, ON A PARTICULAR CASE.

AND YOU'VE REALLY HELPED ME UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE NUANCES AND ALSO, UH, THE NE YOU KNOW, KIND OF UNDERSTANDING THE NEIGHBORHOODS POSITION ON SOME THINGS, UM, THAT YOU, YOU WOULD OFTENTIMES DRIVE DECIDES QUITE FREQUENTLY TO GO VISIT AND ACTUALLY GET A FIRSTHAND VIEW OF, YOU KNOW, WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE GROUND.

SO I KNOW YOU DID THAT QUITE A BIT.

I THINK YOU REALLY PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO THESE CASES AND LIKEWISE COMMISSIONER ANDERSON.

UM, WE DIDN'T ALWAYS AGREE, BUT I LEARNED SO MUCH, UH, YOU KNOW, HIS FRIEND, THE URBAN PLANNING PROFESSION.

UH, I DID, UH, I LEARNED QUITE A BIT FROM COMMISSIONER ANDERSON, ANDY.

HE DEFINITELY, UH, EDUCATED ME ON A LOT OF URBAN PLANNING PRINCIPLES THAT I WASN'T FAMILIAR WITH WHEN I JOINED.

UH, SO I'D LIKE TO OPEN IT UP TO ANYBODY ELSE WOULD LIKE TO SAY ANYTHING.

UM, AND WE'LL, AND WE'LL CLOSE, UH, COMMISSIONER C YOU'RE WANTING TO SAY A FEW WORDS.

SO IT, UM, AFTER WE GO AROUND THE ROOM HERE, UH, SO IF ANYBODY WANTS TO SAY ANYTHING, UH, UH, YOU KNOW, IN APPRECIATION OF COMMISSIONER SEEKER AND ANDERSON POLICE COMMISSIONER SNYDER, UH, SO, UH, I WAS, UH, SAD TO LEARN OF BOTH COMMISSIONER ANDERSON AND COMMISSIONER SEEKERS DEPARTURE.

RIGHT.

AND I LOVE WHERE THE TWO OF YOU COME FROM TWO DIFFERENT SIDES AND ALWAYS ARE ABLE TO BRING THAT PART TO, TO KIND OF GRAB SOMETHING AND SHAKE IT OPEN BEFORE WE KIND OF FIND A WAY TO PUT IT TOGETHER.

I REALLY HOPE THAT, UM, ALL OF OUR COMMISSIONERS HERE CAN BE INSPIRED BY BOTH OF YOUR APPROACHES, UM, YOU KNOW, AS WE, AS WE MOVE FORWARD, YOU KNOW, AND, UM, AND AGAIN, I MEAN, I'M REALLY GONNA MISS YOU GUYS.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

SO I APPRECIATE ALL YOUR HELP THROUGH ALL THE YEARS TO ALL THE CODE, NEXT STUFF, AND ALL THE COLD NEXT CODE NEXT, NEXT, AND EVEN MOVING FORWARD.

AND I, I REALLY HOPE THAT, UM, YOU GUYS STAY IN TOUCH, YOU KNOW, AS, AS YOU KNOW, AS KIND OF GUIDANCE THROUGH, UH, UM, AS WE MOVE THROUGH THIS WHOLE NEW ERA OF AUSTIN THAT IS COMPLETELY TRANSFORMING SO QUICKLY IN FRONT OF US.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR, FOR BEING THERE FOR US.

THANK YOU, JARED.

I JUST, UH, YOU KNOW, I AGREE WITH PRETTY MUCH WHERE MY FELLOW COMMISSIONERS SAID, SAID, UH, AND I'M SAD TO SEE BOTH COMMISSIONER SPEAKER AND KOSHA ANDERSON GO.

IT HAS BEEN A JOY SERVING WITH THEM, AND I AGREE THAT I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH, YOU KNOW, I'VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING REALLY CLOSELY WITH THEM, BOTH ON THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, AND THEN ALSO SERVING WITH THEM WHEN THE CODES AND ORDINANCES JOINED COMMITTEE.

AND, YOU KNOW, I JUST TACK THEM FOR THE AMOUNT OF TIME THAT THEY'RE IN AND THE SERVICE THEY'RE BOTH EXTREMELY DILIGENT, YOU KNOW, LIKE I THINK, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU SEE I'VE EVEN SAT NEXT TO YOU, MY NEIGHBOR FOR A WHILE, WHEN WE DID SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER AND, YOU KNOW, I JUST SAW HOW DILIGENT YOU WERE, HOW COMMITTED YOU ARE TO THE WORK AND THE WAY YOU WERE ABLE TO SORT OF GUIDE THE PROCESS AND OFTEN, YOU KNOW, REALLY FOCUS ON HEARING WHAT NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE TO SAY.

AND I JUST THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS IN DOING THAT.

AND I HAVE TO SAY, I AGREE WITH WHAT COMES TO YOUR SAUCE, THAT THERE'S SO MUCH THAT I'VE LEARNED FROM YOU DIGITALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS LIKE THE TRANSPORTATION, DEMAND MANAGEMENT AND OTHER PIECES THAT ARE SO CRITICAL TO A PROJECT, AND REALLY APPRECIATE THAT KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU BROUGHT.

UM, AND I'VE HAD THE BENEFIT OF LEARNING FROM YOU.

AND THEN SAME GOES FOR COMMISSIONER.

I UNDERSTAND IF HE'S, YOU KNOW, LISTENING IN AT HOME, I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED SOME OF HIS FASHION, BRINGING THINGS FORWARD AND REALLY REMINDING US OF LARGER PLANNING FALLS AND TALKING ABOUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A, UM, YOU KNOW, COMPACT AND CONNECTED CITY AND HOW DO WE GET THE INGREDIENT, YOU KNOW, REMINDING US EVERY TIME TO LIVE UP TO THOSE VALUES AS MATCHING AUSTIN.

PALITO.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING EVERYBODY.

UM, I WAS SO SURPRISED TO, BY THIS NEWS AND, UM, I WANT TO ECHO THE SENTIMENTS OF A LOT OF FOLKS.

UM, I THINK SERVING ON THIS COMMISSION CAN BE AT MOMENTS REALLY DRAINING, ESPECIALLY IN THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, REWRITE ATTEMPTS.

AND I'VE BEEN THROUGH ONE, UH, WELL, I'VE BEEN THROUGH LOTS OF THE OTHER ONES ON THE COMMUNITY SIDE OF THINGS, BUT ON THIS COMMISSION SERVING, UM, I JUST HAVE SO MUCH ADMIRATION FOR EVERYBODY WHO SHOWED UP FOR IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.

UM, AND NO MATTER WHERE WE STOOD ON THE ISSUES, EVERYBODY WAS GIVING A LOT OF THEIR LIFE AND TIME AND ENERGY TO IT.

UM, IN ADDITION TO ALL OF THE CASES THAT GO THAT COME AND GO FOR MOST PEOPLE IN ARE JUST TINY DETAILS FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THESE COMMUNITIES.

AND, UM, YOU KNOW, IT MEANS SOMETHING TO EVERYBODY.

AND SO I APPRECIATE THE SERVICE OF, OF BOTH OF YOU FOR ALL THIS TIME.

AND OF COURSE, COMMISSIONER ANDERSON AND I HAVE SPARRED PLENTY.

WE'VE BEEN KNOWN FOR OUR SOCIAL MEDIA DEBATES.

WE'VE BEEN KNOWN FOR OUR, UM, CONVERSATIONS ON THIS DIET.

AND, UM, AND, AND I VALUE THAT BECAUSE WE WERE ALSO, WE ALSO WALKED TO DINNER ON BREAKS AND, YOU KNOW, TALK ABOUT OTHER THINGS, UH, THAT DECENT HUMAN BEINGS TALK ABOUT.

SO I REALLY RESPECT EVERYONE'S, UH, SERVICE ON MISSION.

AND, UM, WE'LL ECHO EVERYTHING ABOUT COMMISSIONER SEEGER'S DILIGENCE.

UM, BOTH OF YOU HAVE MADE ME A BETTER COMMISSIONER AND INSPIRED ME TO BRING MY GAME, UM, AND SHOW UP AND DO THIS WORK TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITIES.

I APPRECIATE YOU BOTH.

ALL RIGHT.

ANYONE ELSE? COMMISSIONER HOWARD, JUST BRIEFLY.

I JUST WANT TO THANK COMMISSIONER SEEGER AND COMMISSIONER ANDERSON, SIMPLY FOR JUST YOUR GREAT EXAMPLE.

I MEAN,

[00:10:01]

YOU GUYS ARE PITTA MRIS, WHAT PLANNING COMMISSION WOULD BE LIKE? YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? I THINK IT IS ODD TO SEE YOU GO ALL BOTH GO BECAUSE YOU'RE, I CONSIDER YOU THAT THE SEASONS ONE ON THE COMMISSION.

AND SO I FEEL A LITTLE BIT LIKE, OKAY, WE NEED TO STEP IT UP HERE BECAUSE FOLKS ARE LEAVING, BUT I FEEL VERY MUCH LIKE YOU ALL GET A GREAT EXAMPLE.

HE CARES PASSIONATELY ABOUT THE COMMUNITY AND THAT FAR YOU STAND FIRM ON YOUR, ON YOUR BELIEFS AND YOUR OPINIONS.

I REALLY, REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

AND I DON'T THINK THAT ANYONE IN HIS COMMISSION WOULD SAY THAT THEY, THEY DIDN'T.

AND SO I PERSONALLY WOULD, I WILL MISS YOU BOTH.

AND I APPRECIATE, AGAIN, THE KIND OF EXAMPLE THAT YOU SAID, AND JUST MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW, HOW, HOW PASSIONATE YOU ARE ABOUT THIS COMMUNITY.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, BOTH.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS? OKAY.

UH, SO COMMISSIONER SEGER, I KNOW YOU WANTED TO SAY A FEW WORDS, BUT THIS IS YOUR MOMENT.

OH, THANK YOU.

I WOULD LIKE TO SAY GOODBYE TO MY FELLOW PLANNING COMMISSIONERS ON OUR ARTIFICIAL DIOCESE, AS WE HAVE BEEN FOR THE PAST YEAR.

I WISH WE COULD HAVE WORKED IN PERSON.

I THINK THAT A LOT MORE IS ACCOMPLISHED IN THE PERSONAL DISCUSSIONS, BUT THIS IS THE LIFE THAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW, HELP WAY.

IT DOESN'T LAST TOO MUCH LONGER.

AND YOU CAN GET BACK ON THE DIET OVER THE PAST YEAR OR SO.

I'VE WORKED ON BOTH ZAP AND THE PLANNING CONDITION.

AND I'VE WORKED WITH A LOT OF COMMISSIONERS IN ADDITION TO SAYING THANK YOU TO THE CURRENT COMMISSIONERS.

I'D LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE PAST COMMISSIONERS, AS WHAT WAS STATED BY OUR COMMISSIONERS, JUST IT'S EVERYONE'S VIEWPOINT THAT COMES TO THE BEST DECISION.

WE ALL COME FROM DIFFERENT PLACES.

WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT UNDERSTANDINGS OF WHAT IT SHOULD BE.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SEND A REALLY BIG THANK YOU TO STAFF FOR ALL THE HELP THAT YOU GAVE ME IN UNDERSTANDING AND TRYING TO DECIDE FOR OUR VERY COMPLEX, CONTRADICTORY AND OBSOLETE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE.

SPEAKING OF THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, I HOPE A RESOLUTION COMES SOON WHERE WE HAVE, YOU HAVE A NEW LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE.

EVERYONE HAS A NEW LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE TO WORK WITH AND A LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE THAT ANSWERS THE NEEDS OF TODAY TOMORROW, BUT ALSO LOOKS AT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST.

AND THIS IS COMING FROM, I GUESS MY NEIGHBORHOOD'S PERSPECTIVE, BUT I WANT TO PUT IT IN THERE.

THERE ARE RESIDENTS WHO'VE BEEN PAYING PROPERTY TAX FOR 10, 20, 30 YEARS.

THAT DIDN'T FEEL REPRESENTED DURING OUR LAST SEVERAL GO DOWNS OF THE REWRITE.

I REALLY HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS A VOICE.

THOSE RESIDENTS THAT HAVE PAID THE PROPERTY TAXES HAVE BUILT OUR SCHOOLS, OUR ROADS HAVE SUPPORTED THE UNHOUSED AND GIVEN TO THOSE AUSTINITES AND NEED.

AND WE TALK ABOUT EQUITY, MAKE SURE WE LOOK AT IT.

THAT EQUITY COMES IN MANY COLORS AND FORMS. THE NEW CODE NEEDS TO COME WITH THE LENS, SUPPORTING ALL AUSTINITES BECAUSE IT IS FOR ALL AUSTINITES AND I WISH YOU LUCK IF YOU GET INVOLVED IN ANOTHER REWRITE.

THANK YOU.

I WILL MISS YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

HELLO.

MY NAME IS GWEN JUDAS.

I'M WITH THE, UM, SOUTH CENTRAL NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING, UH, CONTACT TEAM.

AND WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH, UM, LEAH BOHO ON WITH GENDER GROUP, THE REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE DEVELOPER.

AND I BELIEVE THAT ALL OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION MEMBERS HAVE A COPY OF OUR LETTER, UM, WHERE WE OUTLINE, UH, A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE'VE BEEN DISCUSSING THERE.

AND SO I BELIEVE THAT WE ARE, UM, GOOD WITH GOING WITH THE CONSENT AGENDA.

THE ONE THING THAT I DO WANT TO MAKE SURE IS READ INTO THE RECORD IS THAT, UM, THERE IS A CREEK AT THE SOUTH EDGE OF THIS PROPERTY, AND IT WILL BE IMPORTANT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO MAIN ACCESS TO WHAT WILL BECOME A GREEN BELT AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE, ACCORDING TO THE FOLKS AT HARVARD.

AND THEY ALSO INDICATED THAT THEY HAD, UM, SAID AS MUCH IN THEIR INITIAL REVIEW COMMENTS TO THE, UM, DEVELOPMENT GROUP.

SO WE JUST WANT TO, UM, AVOID SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT WE'VE GONE THROUGH WITH SOME OTHER PROJECTS WHERE THAT DOESN'T GET DISCUSSED UNTIL QUITE A WAYS DOWN THE ROAD AFTER A LOT OF DESIGN WORK HAS BEEN DONE, BUT WE THANK EVERYBODY FOR THEIR EFFORTS TODAY, UM, AND EVERYTHING HAS BEEN CONGENIAL.

SO I BELIEVE WE ARE ALL SET TO GO ON.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

OKAY.

SO, UH, JUMPING BACK, UH, I WANT TO OFFER, UH, COMMISSIONERS AZHAR AND COMMISSIONER CONLEY WHO'S WHO ARE THE CO-SPONSORS FOR ITEM D ONE, UH, TO SAY A FEW WORDS AND, AND IF WE NEED TO HAVE, UH, UH, MORE DISCUSSION ON THIS, WE CAN PULL IT.

THAT IS AN OPTION.

UH, SO, UM, COMMISSIONER AZHAR, UH, MR. , DO YOU GUYS WANT TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM BEFORE WE PUT IT ON A PROVEN ON CONSENT?

[00:25:03]

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER IS ARE THANK YOU CHAIR.

UM, WHILE I'M SORT OF SPEAKING TO IT, I HOPE YOU CAN ALSO CLARIFY.

WE DO NOT NEED TO MOVE IT INTO THE RECORD.

DO WE, IF WE NEED TO, I CAN GO AHEAD AND DO THAT.

UM, IF NOT, BUT THIS IS ALL THAT I HAVE TO OFFER IS IF YOU LOOK AT IT IN THE BACKUP IT'S EXHIBIT EIGHT FOR PROGRAM, WE'VE ASKED A RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL RECENTLY ON THIS, UM, AND FORGOT THE EXACT DATA TO MEETING ON ESSENTIALLY MOVING FORWARD WITH THE SITE REQUIREMENTS FOR, UH, FOR THE BOLIVIAN LAW, WHICH HAD SOMETHING THAT RESIDE WORLD WE WERE WORKING AS A CITY ON THE LAND DEVELOPMENT VOTE.

WE DID PASS IT AS A RECOMMENDATION ALREADY, BUT I WAS INFORMED AFTERWARDS, THIS WOULD HAVE TO BE, UM, A GOURD AMENDMENT INITIATIVE AND ENUNCIATION.

SO AT THIS POINT, ALL WE'RE DOING IS INITIATING IT AS ACORN AMENDMENT FOR STAFF TO GO AND WORK ON AND THEN BRING IT BACK TO US AND DO COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL.

SO THAT'S ALL THAT, THIS IS THE SAME.

IT WILL BE THE SAME LANGUAGE.

IT WOULD BE FOLLOWING THE EXACT SAME GUIDANCE THAT COUNCIL PROVIDED IN THE ORIGINAL RESOLUTION.

UM, AND THAT WILL BE RESOLUTION.

I'M GONNA LOOK AT IT TO MAKE SURE THAT I GET THE NUMBER OF RIGHT, BUT ESSENTIALLY THIS IS PART OF THE ORIGINAL RESOLUTION.

IT'S THE SAME LANGUAGE THAT GAZAL HAD ADOPTED.

AND THEN WE HAD RECOMMENDED BACK TO THEM RECENTLY, IT WOULD BE IN THE FORM OF A GOURD AMENDMENT.

AND IF I NEED TO READ IT INTO THE RECORD, YOU CAN ALWAYS LET ME KNOW.

THANK YOU.

YEAH.

UH, WE DON'T NEED TO READ IT INTO THE RECORD.

UM, AND, UH, COMMISSIONER CONLEY, DID YOU WISH TO SPEAK TO BESIDE HIM? UM, JUST A FEW VERY BRIEF WORDS.

AND I THINK THAT, YOU KNOW, UH, UH, COMMISSIONER SEGER ALREADY PUT IT VERY, VERY WELL AND, AND, AND, AND HER COMMENTS ABOUT HOW OUR LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE CONTINUES TO BE JUST INCREDIBLY OUTDATED.

AND SO I THINK, YOU KNOW, IT'S A SMALL STEP, BUT IT WILL MOVE US, UH, CLOSER TOWARDS MAKING IT A LITTLE EASIER TO CREATE SOME AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WHICH IS BADLY IN NEED.

SO I HOPE THAT WE CAN TAKE THIS STEP AND THAT'S REALLY ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, UH, COMMISSIONERS FOR YOUR, UH, DILIGENCE AND PUSHING THIS THROUGH.

UH, SO WE ARE GOING TO INCLUDE, UH, UM, THE ONE ON THE CONSENT AGENDA AS WELL.

AND SO

[Consent Agenda]

WITH THAT, UM, LET'S SEE IF I'VE GOT EVERYTHING WE, UH, WE'RE GOING TO INCLUDE, I'M GOING TO RUN THROUGH THE ITEMS ONE MORE TIME, BUT WE HAVE THE APPROVAL OF MINUTES.

AND THEN WE HAVE, UM, WE HAVE ITEMS A B ONE B TWO B THREE, B FOUR, B FIVE, B SIX, B SEVEN, B A B NINE, B 10, B 11, B12 AND B 13.

THESE ARE ITEMS THAT D ONE ARE ALL ON THE CONSENT AGENDA.

SO IF I COULD GET A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND ALSO, UH, APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES FROM FEBRUARY 9TH AND APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS. I SEE COMMISSIONER HOWARD WITH A AND COMMISSIONER, SEE HER WITH A SECOND.

SO IF YOU GUYS CAN SHOW ME YOUR CARDS, ALL RIGHT.

SEE COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

ARE YOU OKAY? ALL RIGHT.

UNANIMOUS.

OKAY.

SO THAT MOVES US INTO WAY DOWN THE AGENDA.

THIS IS, UH, WE SAVED THIS ONE FOR COMMISSIONER SEEGER'S, SO MAYBE WE'LL GET OUT EARLY, RIGHT.

LET'S SEE.

SO NOW WE HAVE, UM,

[C1. Discussion and possible action regarding a recommendation to City Council on the preferred design scenario for the Dougherty Arts Center Replacement Project—Kevin Johnson, Acting Project Management Supervisor, Parks and Recreation Department, (512) 974-9506. ]

I'LL WAIT FOR IT TO COME UP ON THE SCREEN.

I WAS TALKING WITH MY TEAM AND I THINK WE'RE SEEING ABOUT A 32ND LAG BETWEEN OUR VIDEO FEED AND THE AUDIO.

SO I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE FOR ANY CHOPPINESS THAT, THAT WE'LL EXPERIENCE HERE.

UM,

[00:30:01]

BUT I'M JOINED BY MY COLLEAGUES.

YEAH.

WE SEE THE, UH, THE FRONT PAGE THAT IF YOU NEED HELP, UH, LET LET US KNOW.

OKAY.

UM, I'M JOINED BY MY COLLEAGUES, JONATHAN PEARSON, THIS EVENING FROM STUDIO EIGHT ARCHITECTS.

HE'S A PROJECT ARCHITECT ON THIS PROJECT AND ALSO GO BACK TO RONNIE.

HE IS THE PRINCIPAL AT BOTH CONSULTING AND TRAFFIC ENGINEERING FIRM ON OUR TEAM.

AND, UH, WE APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE AN UPDATE OF PRELIMINARY DESIGN UPDATES FOR THE AUTHORITY ART CENTER REPLACEMENT PROJECT.

UM, FOR THOSE OF YOU ON THE COMMISSION WHO WERE THERE A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, YOU MIGHT RECALL THAT WE CAME TO YOU AFTER A PLANNING AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PHASE, AS WE WERE SEEKING COUNCIL'S APPROVAL TO RELOCATE THIS FACILITY TO A NEW SITE AT BUTLER SHORES PARKLAND, WHICH IS JUST ACROSS LAMAR BOULEVARD AND NORTH OF TUMI ROAD ON THE LAKE FRONTAGE, UM, THAT WAS APPROVED BY COUNCIL.

AND IT WAS APPROVED WITH A FEW AMENDMENTS ON ITEM.

UM, SOME OF WHICH WERE THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

AND I HAVE THOSE THAT, SO JUST TO REFRESH THE MEMORIES, I'LL READ THOSE OFF BECAUSE THEY'RE RELATED TO OUR PRESENTATION TONIGHT, BUT, UM, YOU HAD PREVIOUSLY SUGGESTED THAT, UM, AS A PART OF THIS PROJECT, WE INCORPORATE A PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT STRATEGY FOR THE ENTIRE COMPLEX THAT CONSIDERS, UM, ON AND OFF STREET PARKING AND UNDERSHOOTS PARKING SUPPLY AND INSUFFICIENT.

THAT'S THE PRESENTATION SUPPOSED TO BE CHANGING? NOT YET WE CAN STAY ON THAT SLIDE FOR NOW, SORRY.

UH, UNDERSHOOTING THE PARKING SUPPLY AND ANTICIPATION OF TRANSIT INVESTMENT.

UH, YOU ALSO RECOMMENDED THAT ANY STRUCTURED PARKING ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROJECT, THE INNOVATIVE EMPLOYEE LEAD STRATEGY, UM, CHARGED FOR PARKING, AND WE'LL SPEAK MORE TO THAT IN THE PRESENTATION.

AND ALSO THAT THE COMPLEX BE DEVELOPED AS AN ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION HUB AND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO MINIMIZE SPACE DEDICATED TO THE AUTOMOBILE USE.

UM, AND SOME OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WERE ADOPTED BY COUNCIL WERE, UM, PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE SITE, BOTH FROM TUMI ROAD AND WEST RIVERSIDE DRIVE, WHICH WAS A RECOMMENDATION AND PLANNING COMMISSION, OR I'M SORRY, THE DESIGN COMMISSION.

SO JUST WANTED TO POINT THOSE OUT TO REFRESH MEMORIES AND GIVE AN INDICATION AS TO WHY WE'RE HERE.

UM, WE'RE SEEKING APPROVAL TO MOVE FULLY INTO THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PHASES OF THE PROJECT AFTER COMPLETING THIS PRELIMINARY DESIGN PHASE UPDATE.

AND WE'LL SHOW YOU A FEW ALTERNATIVES THAT, UH, COUNSEL HAD ALSO DIRECTED US TO LOOK INTO BEFORE MOVING FORWARD.

SO NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND IMAGINE YOU'RE SEEING THE SITE MAP IN CONTEXT LIKE THIS JUST PUTS THE PROJECT SITE IN PERSPECTIVE WITH THE CURRENT LOCATION OF THE JOY ART CENTER, WHICH IS RIGHT AT THE CORNER OF DAWSON ROAD AND BARTON SPRINGS, THAT LOCATION, THE PURPLE ASTERISK, THE NEW LOCATION IS ON THE BUTLER SHORES PARKLAND SITE AT THE YELLOW ASTERISK.

UM, JUST TO GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF USAGE ON THIS PARKLAND SITE, THE THREE BALL FIELDS ON THE WESTERN MOST EDGE OF THE SITE, UM, OUR LITTLE LEAGUE SOFTBALL FIELDS THAT WILL REMAIN IN USE BY THE SOUTH AUSTIN LITTLE LEAGUE, UH, THE PROJECT SITE FOR THE DOOR.

HE IS REALLY KIND OF IN THE CENTER OF THIS PARCEL ON THE TWO SOFTBALL FIELDS THAT ARE ORIENTED IN THE SAME DIRECTIONS, THE NORTHEAST.

UM, ALSO ON THE SIDE, ON THE NORTHERN EDGE, CLOSER TO RIVERSIDE DRIVE IS, UH, THE PARK'S MAIN OFFICE.

AND THEN THE ZACK THEATER IS SITUATED ON THE EAST AND SOUTH EDGE OF THE SITE.

AND YOU ALSO ARE LIKELY AWARE OF THE PUB THAT WAS JUST APPROVED AT THE, UM, FORMER SCHLOTZKY'S LOCATION.

THAT'S RIGHT ON THE CORNER OF TUMI ROAD IN SOUTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

UM, WE HAVE BEEN IN COORDINATION WITH THAT PROJECT TEAM AND HAVE WORKED A SHARED PARKING ARRANGEMENT, UM, FOR 80 SPACES AS, UH, TO SUPPORT THE DOHERTY ARTS CENTER.

GOTCHA.

FIVE, PLEASE.

THIS SLIDE SPEAKS TO PREVIOUS CITY COUNCIL DIRECTION.

SO LIKE I MENTIONED, THEY DID APPROVE THIS LIKE FOR THE NEW DOOR YARD CENTER IN MAY OF 2019.

AND THE RENDERING ON THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE IMAGE THAT CAME OUT OF THAT PLANNING PROCESS, UM, WHICH WAS REALLY GEARED TOWARD FEASIBILITY OF THE SITE TO, TO FIT BOTH THE FOOTPRINT OF THE DOOR YARD CENTER AND ACCOMMODATE THE VEHICULAR AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS TO, AND FROM THE SIDE.

AND LIKE I MENTIONED, WITH THAT APPROVAL, THEY ALSO ASKED US TO LOOK INTO A FEW ALTERNATIVES AND THOSE ARE ENUMERATED HERE ON THIS SLIDE, UM, TO THE CONVENTION FOR NUMBERING KIND OF TIES TO THE ALTERNATIVES THAT WE'LL SHOW YOU LATER IN THE PRESENTATION.

SO IF POSSIBLE, UM, IT COULD BE HELPFUL TO TRY TO REMEMBER OPTIONS ONE, TWO AND THREE HERE.

OPTION ONE IS A SCENARIO IN WHICH THE NEW DECK AND THE EXISTING PART MAIN OFFICE REMAIN ON SITE.

UM, MUCH LIKE YOU'RE SEEING ON THIS SCREEN HERE.

AND AGAIN, DEPARTMENT OFFICE HAS SHOWN IT, UH,

[00:35:01]

AS THE BLUE RECTANGLE OPTION TWO WAS ONE IN WHICH THE, THE NEW JORDY ART CENTER WOULD BE BUILT ON THIS SITE, BUT THAT THE NEW PART MAIN OFFICE WOULD ALSO BE CONSTRUCTED TOGETHER, UM, WITH THE DIRTY AS ONE PROJECT.

AND I DID JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT PART IS NOT FUNDED TO CONSTRUCT A NEW MAIN OFFICE.

UM, BUT WE DID LOOK INTO A SCENARIO THAT SHOWS THAT, UH, AT COUNCIL DIRECTION AND THEN THE THIRD OPTION SIMILARLY IS UNFUNDED.

UM, BUT THEY ASKED THAT WE LOOK AT A NEW DOOR TO THE ART CENTER ON THE SITE AND THAT, UH, THE EXISTING, PARDON ME, AN OFFICE WOULD BE RELOCATED TO ANOTHER SITE AND THE BUILDING WOULD BE REPURPOSED.

IN ADDITION, UH, THEY ASKED US TO LOOK AT A CONSOLIDATED PARKING SOLUTION FOR THE ARTS DISTRICT.

UM, THAT'S A PARTIALLY UNFUNDED REQUEST OF COUNCIL, UM, AND THAT THE BOND FUNDING THAT SUPPORTS THE, THE ARTS CENTER, YOU KNOW, WAS NOT, UH, DIRECTED TO PICK UP FUNDING OUTSIDE OF THE PROJECT SCOPE FOR THE FACILITY ITSELF.

BUT WE DO WANT TO PURSUE, YOU KNOW, THE BEST COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE APPROACH HERE.

SO, UM, THAT'S ALSO SOMETHING THAT WE'LL TALK ABOUT TONIGHT WITH THE ALTERNATIVES THAT YOU'LL SEE AND, UH, RELATED TO THE UNFUNDED REQUESTS, WE ARE OFF THE DIRECTED TO SEEK ALTERNATIVE FINANCING MECHANISMS AND INTEREST IN PHILANTHROPY FROM THE COMMUNITY IS, ARE BOTH, UM, CONVERSATIONS THAT OUR DEPARTMENT HAS ENGAGED IN WITH, ON MULTIPLE FRONTS.

UH, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO WOULD THE DIRECTION TO LOOK AT POTENTIALLY REMOVING OR DEMOLISHING THE EXISTING CARD MAIN OFFICE? WE ALSO JUST WANTED TO POINT OUT IT'S HISTORIC CONTEXT.

UH, THE BUILDING WAS CONSTRUCTED IN 1959.

IT HAD A LATER EDITION BUILT ONTO IT IN 76.

UM, BUT THE BUILDING SERVED AS THE FIRST PERMANENT HOME FOR THE CITY OF AUSTIN PARKS DEPARTMENT.

AND AS SUCH, IT'S GOT A HIGH DEGREE OF CULTURAL INTEGRITY AND ALSO ARCHITECTURAL INTEGRITY THAT MAKES IT ELIGIBLE FOR LISTING ON THE NATIONAL HISTORIC REGISTER.

UM, SO THIS PROJECT HAS A LOT OF CONSTRAINTS AND CONSIDERATIONS, BUT THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE THAT, UH, INFORMS, YOU KNOW, PARTS PREFERRED APPROACH AND MOVING FORWARD.

UM, THE DEPARTMENT, YOU KNOW, THE DEPARTMENT'S IDENTITY IS REALLY, UM, CENTRAL TO THE CITY AND THAT LOCATION IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DEPARTMENT TO CONTINUE OPERATING FROM.

UM, BUT AGAIN, WE WILL TALK ABOUT MANY OTHER CONSIDERATION, UH, AS WE MOVE FORWARD TO IN THE PRESENTATION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I THINK YOU'RE PROBABLY SEEING A STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT, UH, SNAPSHOT, AND THIS IS JUST FROM OUR MOST RECENT ROUND OF, UH, PRELIMINARY DESIGN WORK.

BUT THIS IS REALLY JUST TO POINT OUT THAT WE'VE ENGAGED ON MANY LEVELS.

UM, MOST ALL IN VIRTUAL FORUMS, WE'VE HAD CITY-WIDE OPEN HOUSE MEETINGS.

WE'VE ALSO HAD TARGETED SMALL GROUP MEETINGS WITH THE SPECIFIC STAKEHOLDERS OF THE DECK PROJECT TO REALLY MAKE SURE THAT OUR TEAM UNDERSTANDS THE NUANCES OF HOW SPACES ARE USED AND ACCESSED.

UM, AND THESE WERE ALL VERY INFORMATIVE TO THE ALTERNATIVES THAT WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU TONIGHT.

WE'VE ALSO BEEN, UM, COORDINATING WITH OUR PARTNERS, BOTH AT THE CITY AND, UM, NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE TRAIL FOUNDATION.

AND OF COURSE OUR NEIGHBOR AT THE SITE IS THAT SCOTT, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, THAT ENGAGEMENT PROCESS INFORMED THE PROJECT MISSION STATEMENT, WHICH I WON'T READ, BUT IT REALLY JUST INTENDS TO MERGE THE MISSION OF THE JORDY ART CENTER WOULD HAVE THE PARKS DEPARTMENT, UM, TO SUPPORT ARTS ACCESS FOR ALL AND TO CREATE COMMUNITY IN DOING SO.

UM, YOU'RE SEEING FIVE WORDS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCREEN.

THOSE ARE REALLY THE CORE TENANTS OF THE PROJECT THAT WE'LL REVISIT AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE DESIGN PHASE.

AND I DID WANT TO POINT OUT ONE SPECIFICALLY IN TERMS OF THE STAINABLE.

UM, WE DO HAVE SOME AMBITIOUS SUSTAINABILITY GOALS FOR THIS PROJECT.

WE'RE LOOKING TO DELIVER A LEAD GOLD CERTIFIED FACILITY AND ALSO, UM, PARDES FIRST WELL CERTIFIED FACILITY, WHICH SPEAKS TO THE HEALTH OF THE INTERIOR, UM, QUALITY OF THE SPACES AND THE OCCUPANTS THAT ARE USING IT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I BELIEVE THAT TAKES US TO THE SITE CONSTRAINTS MAP, AND I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO JONATHAN PEARSON WITH STUDIO EIGHT, TO WALK US THROUGH THE SITE AND THE FOUR OPTIONS THAT I SPOKE TO.

WELL, HOWEVER YOU WANT, UM, JONATHAN PEARSON FROM STUDIO EIGHT, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR LETTING US KEVIN GO BACK AND BE PRESENT TONIGHT.

UH, WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE PROCESSES THAT WE'VE UNDERTAKEN TO COME ABOUT THE DIFFERENT SIDE PLANNING OPTIONS THAT WERE PROPOSED BY CITY COUNCIL, UH, AND, AND TALK ABOUT THE EVOLUTION OF HOW IT WENT FROM THE 2019 PLAN TO WHERE WE ARE CURRENTLY.

PROBABLY THE BEST WAY TO START IS TO TALK ABOUT THE CONSTRAINTS THAT, UH, BISECT THE SITE.

AND SO

[00:40:01]

WHAT YOU'RE SEEING ON THE SCREEN IS A NUMBER OF GREEN CIRCLES AND SOME THINKING PURPLE, UH, HALF YOUR FILL AREAS, THE GREEN CIRCLES ARE LIVE OAK HERITAGE LIVE OAKS THAT ARE VERY BEAUTIFUL AND, UH, IT'S SOMETHING THAT ABSOLUTE AMENITIES OF SITE.

AND SO WE WANT TO PLAN AROUND THEM.

YOU'LL ALSO SEE A NUMBER OF GREEN DASH LINES, UH, CIRCLES.

THOSE REPRESENT COTTONWOODS THAT ARE MORE TOWARDS THE END OF THEIR LIFESPAN, BUT ARE STILL SIGNIFICANT TREES.

AND WE'D LIKE TO, UH, INCLUDE THEM IN OUR PLANNING AS WELL WITH THE HOPES THAT MAYBE THEY'LL CONTINUE TO LIVE, UH, AND SUPPORT THE SITE.

THERE'S ALSO SOME SMALLER, UH, PECANS AND, AND OTHER SPECIMEN TREES THAT DIVE THE SITE, BUT REALLY THAT'S ONE OF THE FIRST MOTIVATIONS IN HOW WE WERE ABLE TO PLACE THE DIFFERENT OPTIONS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE, UH, THE OTHER CONSTRAINTS OF THE UNDERGROUND UTILITY.

UH, YOU'RE SEEING THREE DIFFERENT COLORS.

I APOLOGIZE IF YOU'RE COLOR BLIND, UH, BUT I WILL DO MY BEST TO DESCRIBE THEIR POSITION AS WELL.

UH, THE MOST, UM, KIND OF IN THE WAY LET'S CALL THEM ARE THE ONES ALONG TUMI ROAD AND JUST NORTH OF TUMI ROAD.

UH, THESE ARE CLOSE TO THE SURFACE, UH, WASTEWATER AND WATER UTILITIES.

THESE ARE TRANSMISSION LINES ACTUALLY.

UM, AND THEY REALLY PREVENT US FROM PUTTING ANYTHING, UH, IN THOSE AREAS.

SO, UH, IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE NORMAL SUBTRACTOR E THE GUIDELINES WHERE THE BUILDINGS HE PLAYS CLOSE TO THE ROAD, THAT THAT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE ALONG TO ME BECAUSE OF THESE MYTHS, THERE'S A PURPLE, UH, BILL THAT'S RUNNING NORTH, SOUTH EAST SITE.

I REPRESENTED DRAINAGES AND THEN THE PAIR OF BOX CULVERTS THAT, UH, COME FROM BARTON SPRINGS ROAD AND GO UP TOWARDS THE LAKE NORTH TOWARDS THE LAKE.

UH, THOSE ARE ALSO SOMETHING THAT WE CANNOT BUILD OVER THE POSSIBLE THAT WE COULD MOVE THEM, BUT THAT WOULD BE A HUGE STRAIN ON THE PROJECT BUDGET TO, TO SPEND OUR TIME AND ENERGY MOVING THEM.

THE THIRD ONE, EXCUSE ME, EXCUSE ME.

UM, WE NEED TO TAKE A VOTE TO EXTEND, UH, NEED A MOTION SECOND, UH, AND PROPOSE, WE'RE GOING TO TAKE ACTION ON THIS.

DO WE WANT TO GIVE THEM 10 MINUTES MORE? UH, CAN I HEAR A MOTION? OKAY.

AND SECOND BY COMMISSIONER, UM, YOU GUYS MOVE AROUND YOU AND IT'S PLUTO.

OKAY.

THEY NEED A SUPER MAJORITY TO GIVE THEM MORE TIME.

SO, UM, LET'S SEE HERE.

WHAT DO WE HAVE? ALL RIGHT.

IT'S UNANIMOUS.

OKAY.

SO WE'RE GIVING THEM 10 MORE MINUTES TO FINISH UP.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE ALL THAT TIME IF YOU DON'T NEED IT, THOUGH.

ALL RIGHT, PLEASE CONTINUE.

WELL, YEAH, WE'LL DO OUR BEST TO KEEP IT.

SO, UH, THE LAST ONE IS, UH, THE, UH, TRANSMISSION LINE THAT GOES DEEP UNDER LADY BIRD LAKE, AND WE CAN POTENTIALLY BUILD, UH, OVER TOP OF IT, ALTHOUGH WE'RE GOING TO TRY NOT TO, UH, THE SAME ONE THAT LIBRARIES ON NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UH, IF KEVIN MENTIONED, UH, THERE ARE FOUR OPTIONS, UH, OPTIONS, ONE A AND ONE B MAINTAIN THE PARK STAYS IN ITS CURRENT LOCATION, THE CURRENT BUILDING, UH, AND THEN A NEW FACILITY, A NEW DOHERTY FACILITY IS BUILT, UH, ON THE SITE SOMEWHERE, OPTION ONE A SHOWS IT, UH, JUST KIND OF TO THE SOUTH, IT'S KIND OF MATCHES THE 2019 PLANNING JUST IN A DIFFERENT FORM.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ALL ARE ABLE TO STILL SEE THE SCREEN.

UM, IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S BACK ON, UH, OPTION TWO, UH, INTENSIVE THE DOOR.

HE GOES, I'M SORRY THAT THE DOHERTY STAYS ON SITE AND THE PARDES MAIN OFFICE GOES AWAY FROM ITS CURRENT LOCATION AND GETS RE GETS MOVED, RELOCATED DOWN TO THE SOUTH PART OF THE SITE.

AND OPTION THREE SHOWS THAT IT JUST GOES AWAY COMPLETELY AND WOULD MOVE OFF SITE.

SO, UH, THERE'S KIND OF A LOT TO UNPACK IN ME.

SO I'M GOING TO TRY AND GO THROUGH THEM QUICKLY.

UH, NEXT SLIDE.

SO OPTION ONE, A, AS I MENTIONED, KIND OF MATCHES THE 2019 PLANNING TO A POINT I THERE'S MOSTLY FACING TO ME, BUT THERE'S A KIND OF A FRONT DOOR ELEMENT THAT'S TIED TO AN ARTS PROVENANCE, UH, THAT LINKS DIRECTLY TO ZACH'S GOT THEATER AND TO THE DROP-OFF THAT'S RIGHT TO THE, BETWEEN PART AND ZACK RIGHT NOW, THE THING WITH THIS IS THERE'D BE AN UNDERGROUND CIVIC PARKING PLAZA, UH, THAT COMES OFF OF RIVERSIDE AND WOULD KIND OF BE THE FRONT DOOR FOR THE BUILDING, BUT THERE'D ALSO BE A SECONDARY FRONT DOOR, UH, TO THE SOUTH, ALONG TO ME, UH, THE STUDIO, THERE'S KIND OF FIVE BIG PROGRAM ELEMENTS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IN ALL OF THESE.

I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THEY'RE ALL THE SAME SIZE IN EACH ONE.

THE ONLY THING THAT MIGHT CHANGE SLIGHTLY IS THE AMOUNT OF CIRCULATION TO LINK THEM TOGETHER.

THOSE FIVE ELEMENTS ARE THE GALLERY, THE STUDIOS, THE SCHOOL, UH, THE THEATERS.

AND OF COURSE THE OUTDOOR SPACE.

THAT'S THE, PROBABLY THE MOST PROMINENT FEATURE OF THIS, UH, OPPORTUNITY WITH BUTLER PARK IS THE ABILITY TO CONNECT THE ARTS BUILDING, UH, WITH THE LARGER PARK, THE OUTDOOR PROGRAMMING, UH, AND JUST KIND OF THE ENTIRE CITY AS IT WERE.

SO OPTION ONE IS, IS KIND OF WHAT WE STARTED WITH IN 2019.

WE JUST RE-IMAGINED THE SHAPE.

UH, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, OPTION ONE B UH, WHICH IS THE PREFERRED OPTION FROM PARD, UH, SHOWS THE

[00:45:01]

BUILDING SLID CLOSER TO LADY BIRD LAKE KIND OF BEING AT THE END OF THE AXIS OF RIVERSIDE DRIVE.

UH, IT HAS A LITTLE MORE PROMINENT THE THING THAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS, AS WE WERE SHOWING THE PARKING GARAGE WITH THE GREEN ROOF, THAT WOULD TAKE THE PLACE OF THE BUILDING.

THIS IS A TRULY DISTRICT PARKING SOLUTION.

IT CAN SERVE BOTH ZACK, THE DOHERTY PART, IF IT REMAINS IN PLACE, UM, AND THE PARK AS WELL.

UH, IT, IT ALSO OFFERS THE MOST FLEXIBILITY IN TERMS OF ACCESS.

UH, I THINK THE THING THAT'S ALSO KEY TO THIS PARTICULAR SOLUTION IS THAT IT REALLY BECOMES ICONIC IN THE CITY.

UH, IT'S NOT OVERPOWERING, EVEN THOUGH IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S CLOSE TO THE TRAIL IS REALLY NOT AS OVERPOWERING THERE, BUT IT IS, WOULD HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF VISIBILITY, UH, IN THE FORM FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE CITY, AS OPPOSED TO BEING TUCKED BEHIND, UH, THE EXISTING BUILDINGS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO OPTION TWO PROVIDES US THE ABILITY TO TAKE THE EXISTING CARD FACILITY AWAY AND PUT IT IN A NEW BUILDING TO THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE SITE.

UM, THIS ALLOWS US TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE WONDERFUL SIGHTINGS THAT PART HAS RIGHT NOW.

UH, AND AGAIN, PUT MORE GREEN SPACE UP TOWARDS THE TRAIL.

UH, THE, THE DROP-OFF WOULD BE MAINTAINED, UH, EITHER TO THE SOUTH OR TO THE EAST OFF RIVERSIDE DRIVE, UH, AND ALSO OPTION TWO AND OPTION THREE, A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY OF PUTTING THE PARKING GARAGE, EITHER UNDER THE NEW DOHERTY OR UNDER THE CIVIC CLOSET, UH, BOTH ARE OPTIONS, BUT WE WOULD NOT DO BOTH WE'D PICK ONE OR THE OTHER.

UH, THE, THE KEY THING WITH OPTION TWO IS THE COURTYARD SPACE THAT IT CREATES OR COURTYARD SPACES THAT IT CREATES CARVED AROUND THE BEAUTIFUL LIVE OAK.

UH, I SHOULD'VE POINTED OUT WITH ONE B THAT THERE'S ZERO IMPACT ON HERITAGE TREES, UH, WITH OPTIONS TWO AND THREE WE'LL WE'LL HAVE TO MOVE A HERITAGE STREET TO MAKE IT WORK.

OPTION THREE, PLEASE, OR NEXT SLIDE.

SO OPTION THREE IS VERY SIMILAR TO OPTION TWO, THE DIFFERENCES THAT WE KEPT THE ORIGINAL PARK BUILDING WE'VE TORN DOWN THE ADDITION, AND WE TRIED TO INTEGRATE THE DORY TO IT.

UM, THIS IS A NOD TO THE, THE BEAUTY OF THE ORIGINAL BUILDING AND TRYING TO REPURPOSE IT TOWARDS, UH, THE BACK'S PURPOSES.

IT ALLOWS US TO KIND OF SHIFT THE BUILDING UP ON SITES AND SEE THERE'S MORE GENEROUS SPACE TO THE SOUTH LAWN TEAMING.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO REAL QUICK, AND I'LL HAND IT TO BEAU BACKSTOP FOR A SECOND.

THIS, THIS SHOWS THE POTENTIAL GARAGE LOCATIONS.

YOU CAN KIND OF SEE IT IN THE BLUE HIGHLIGHT AND THE PINK DASH LINE SEEMED TO REPRESENT THE ACCESS.

UH, AND DROP-OFF POINT, UM, AS I SAID, OPTION ONE A, WE IMAGINED THAT THE GARAGE IS JUST THE NORTH UNDER THE ARTS DISTRICT CLOSET, OFTEN ONE D TO THE MIDDLE OF THE SITE, BUT IT'S ACCESSIBLE FROM BOTH SIDES AND IT'S A GREEN ROOF AND KIND OF COVERED OVER OR COMPLETELY VARIED OPTIONS.

TWO AND THREE, WE HAVE THE OPTION TO EITHER PUT IT UNDER THE BUILDING OR UNDER THE ARTS DISTRICT.

AND WITH THAT, I'D LIKE TO TURN IT OVER, TO GO BACK TO KIND OF SPEAK ABOUT THE, UM, HOW WE'RE APPROACHING THAT.

HI, EVERYONE, REBECCA TORONTO, HERE WITH BOTH CONSULTING.

UH, IF WE CAN GO TO SLIDE 14, PLEASE.

SO I'M GOING TO FLY THROUGH THIS.

I KNOW WE'RE SHORT ON TIME AND I'LL KNOW, OBVIOUSLY JOB, ANY QUESTIONS YOU CAN, WE CAN, UH, UH, GET THOSE AT THE END.

SO FOR OUR ANALYSIS, UH, WE BROUGHT ON NELSON NYGAARD TO HELP US WITH THE SHARED PARKING MODEL.

UH, AS, AS KEVIN MENTIONED IT EARLY ON IN THIS, WE DEFINITELY LOOKED AT THIS AS A, AS A DISTRICT WIDE APPROACH.

UH, OBVIOUSLY FROM AN ENVIRONMENTAL PERSPECTIVE, WE WANT TO RIGHT SIZE PARKING AND LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF AUTO CENTRIC SOLUTIONS OUT HERE.

UH, AND THEN FROM AN INFRASTRUCTURE AND COST PERSPECTIVE, WE ALSO, I MEAN THAT THAT'S A HUGE BONUS TO REDUCE THE COST OF THE CITY IN TERMS OF NOT HAVING TO BUILD AS MUCH PARKING AS OTHERWISE WOULD BE NEEDED.

SO OUR FIRST STEP WAS TO EVALUATE WHAT WAS THE EXISTING INVENTORY IN THIS, UH, CALL IT THE CULTURAL DISTRICT OR, OR ARTS DISTRICT THAT'S BEING CREATED IN THIS AREA.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, UH, ON, ON THE D WE HAVE IDENTIFIED, UH, THE SCHLOTZSKY'S PUD, UH, AND THEIR COMMITMENT THROUGH THAT, UH, ZONING CASE OF PROVIDING 80 SPACES, UH, THAT WOULD BE ABLE TO BE USED AS PART OF THE DECK PROJECT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND SO, UH, THESE ARE THE THREE SCENARIOS THAT WE LOOKED AT FROM A PARKING PERSPECTIVE, SCENARIO, ONE BEING A BASE BASELINE WEEKDAY, WHICH IS AN 8:00 AM TO 5:00 PM KIND OF SCENARIO WITH TYPICAL PROGRAMMING.

UH, SCENARIO TWO IS AGAIN, THE 8:00 AM TO 5:00 PM, TYPICAL PROGRAMMING, BUT IT ALSO INCLUDED, UM, THE WEEK, DAY, EVENING EVENTS.

AND THEN SCENARIO THREE IS YOUR CULMINATION OF, UH, THE ZACK, THE DAC, BOTH BEING ACTIVATED, THE ADJACENT ACTIVE USE WAS BEING ACTIVATED AND THEN POTENTIALLY ANY OTHER LARGE-SCALE EVENTS GOING ON IN THE CITY.

SO WHEN WE LOOK ACROSS THESE THREE SCENARIOS, THE MOST COMMONLY OCCURRING SCENARIO THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO DESIGN FOR WAS THE WEEKDAY WITH AN EVENT

[00:50:01]

SCENARIO TWO.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE THESE PEAK WEEK, DAY, EVENING EVENTS.

AND WHEN WE SAY EVENT, WE'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT ADDITIONAL PROGRAM MIGHT BE A SMALL ART GALLERY GOING ON, OR A POTTERY CLASS OR SOMETHING GOING ON IN THE EVENING.

IT WASN'T ONCE A MONTH, OR ONCE EVERY OTHER MONTH WE WERE TALKING ABOUT TWO OR THREE TIMES A WEEK THAT'S GOING ON.

AND SO THAT'S WHY, HONESTLY IT WAS MORE APPROPRIATE TO, UH, DESIGN AND PLAN FOR SCENARIO TWO, AS OPPOSED TO SCENARIO ONE OR SCENARIO THREE, SCENARIO THREE, BEING THE, UM, ONCE EVERY NOW AND AGAIN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, WHICH WILL, THOSE WOULD BE, UM, PLANNED FOR IT THROUGH AN EVENT MANAGEMENT PLAN, AS WE SEE WITH OTHER EVENTS IN THE CITY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND SO WITH THIS SLIDE, UH, WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS KIND OF OUR THOUGHT PROCESS IN PDM.

UH, WE UNDERSTAND FULLY UNDERSTAND THE GOALS OF THE CITY TO, UH, REDUCE THE NUMBER OF SINGLE OCCUPANCY VEHICLES ON THE ROADWAY TO RIGHT-SIDE PARKING AND NOT HAVE A RESERVED PARKING SPACE FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON FOR EVERY SINGLE USE.

AND SO THERE WAS A LOT OF OPPORTUNITY HERE, UH, NOT ONLY FOR THE DECK, BUT THE DAX, ZACK, THE PART OFFICE BUILDING, UH, THE ACTIVE USES, UH, AROUND THE AREA, UH, TO REALLY BRING TOGETHER A UNIFIED, UH, PARKING SOLUTION TO AGAIN, UH, RIGHT-SIZE IT TO MINIMIZE IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT AND MINIMIZE INFRASTRUCTURE COSTS.

UH, ASIDE FROM SHARED PARKING, WE ALSO IMPLEMENTED, UH, TDM MEASURES, UH, THAT WOULD, UH, FURTHER REDUCE SINGLE OCCUPANCY VEHICLES.

UH, THE CITY OF AUSTIN ALREADY PARTICIPATES IN TRANSIT PASS PROGRAMS FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES.

UH, SO EMPLOYEES OF THE DECK WOULD BE ABLE TO, UH, PARTICIPATE IN THAT IN GETTING, UH, SUBSIDIZED OR FREE TRANSIT PASSES TO PROMOTE BUS USE, UH, AS WE ALL KNOW, PROJECT CONNECT AND, UM, THE MOBILITY BOND ARE GOING TO HAVE VERY LARGE IMPACTS ON OUR TRANSIT SYSTEM FOR CAPITAL METRO LONG SOUTH DAMAR.

UH, THERE WILL BE A BRAND NEW STOP, WRITE IT TO ME AND, UH, SOUTH LAMAR.

AND SO THAT'LL, THAT'LL PROVIDE, UH, ADDED, UM, ON SLIDE 18, SORRY, AS I'M SORRY.

I BELIEVE I'M ON SLIDE 16.

UM, AND SO, UM, SO YEAH, SO THOSE, THOSE WERE KIND OF THE DIFFERENT MEASURES THAT FROM THE SITE DESIGN PERSPECTIVE, WE ALSO LOOKED AT WHAT CAN WE DO TO FURTHER PROMOTE, UH, PEOPLE TO NOT DRIVE THEIR CARS, OBVIOUSLY WITH A USE LIKE THE BACK PEOPLE ARE BRINGING IN LARGE ART SUPPLIES, IT'S DIFFICULT TO HAUL THOSE AROUND IN A BUS OR ON A BIKE.

AND SO WITH THIS NEW DOCK FACILITY, UM, IT IS, UH, WE'RE LOOKING AT INCLUDING STORAGE FACILITIES, UH, STORAGE CUBBIES, SO THAT PEOPLE CAN LEAVE THEIR EQUIPMENT AND THEIR SUPPLIES AT THE DOCK AS OPPOSED TO HAVING TO HAUL IT AROUND.

AND SO THAT WILL FURTHER PROMOTE, UH, THE USE OF MULTIMODAL, UM, UH, TRANSPORTATION.

AND SO, UM, I'M SORRY, WHOEVER'S CONTROLLING THE SLIDES.

I'M ON SLIDE 17.

YEAH.

SO SARAH, WE'VE GOT TO GO AHEAD AND WRAP IT UP HERE.

SO IF YOU GOT SOME CLOSING REMARKS AND THEN WE CAN, WE'RE GOING TO GO AROUND AND ASK QUESTIONS.

UM, SO TO CLOSE OUT, GO BACK, I'LL JUMP IN AND JUST MAKE A FEW REMARKS.

AND IF WE COULD MAYBE JUST END ON SLIDE 22, I THINK THAT'LL REINFORCE THESE COMMENTS, BUT BASICALLY WHEN CONSIDERING THE OPERATIONAL NEEDS OF VICTOR FACILITY AND STAFF AND ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE PROJECT, AND WHEN WEIGHING THE POTENTIAL RISKS TO BE BEING THE PROJECT TEAM PREFERS OPTION ONE B AS JONATHAN WAS DESCRIBING EARLIER, THE UNIQUE ONE THAT, UM, THE BUILDING WEST OF THOSE EASEMENTS AND CREATES THAT STRONG RELATIONSHIP TO THE HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL.

IT ALSO OFFERS A PARKING SOLUTION THAT DOES NOT ENCROACH WITHIN THE ZACK LEASE BOUNDARY.

AND IT IS THE LOAN OPTION THAT MEETS THE COUNCIL DIRECTION TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE FACILITY, BOTH FROM TWO ME AND RIVERSIDE DRIVE.

SO ULTIMATELY IF THE COMMISSION WAS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE MERITS OF THIS TEAM, WE WERE LOOKING FOR A RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL TO PROCEED WITH THAT DIRECTION.

UM, BUT OBVIOUSLY WE'LL OPEN IT UP TO QUESTIONS AND WE'D BE OPEN TO ANY FEEDBACK THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION WANTS TO SHARE WITH THE TEAM AND COUNCIL AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU.

THIS REALLY GOOD PRESS AND STATION, AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO OPEN IT UP TO QUESTIONS.

SO, UM, WE'LL JUST, I'M LOOKING AROUND THE ROOM, UH, COMMISSIONERS WITH QUESTIONS.

SO, UH, I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND START.

UH, I THINK THERE IS A SLIDE I'D LIKE TO ASK WHAT, UH, THAT HAD THE TABLE THAT WE DIDN'T GET TO, UH, AT THE END OF THE TRANS, UH, TDM PROPOSAL.

IT HAD SEVERAL, IT WAS LIKE IN A GRID PATTERN.

I THINK IT WAS MAYBE PAGE, UH, 17 OR 18.

COULD WE PULL THAT UP? CORRECT.

UH, CAN SOMEBODY SPEAK TO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE ON FIVE 17?

[00:55:02]

WELL BACK, DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT ONE? YEAH.

SO THIS IS BOB.

I'LL TAKE IT OUT.

SORRY.

I WAS UNMUTING MYSELF.

UM, SO THE, WHAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE IS FOR THE FOUR OPTIONS, UH, WHAT THESE NET NEW SPACES AND INFORMAL PARKING SPACES.

SO FROM A TDM PERSPECTIVE, UH, WITHOUT IMPLEMENTING ANY KIND OF SHARED PARKING MODEL OR TDM, UH, THE REQUIRED TOTAL SPACES BETWEEN THE VARIOUS USES AND KEEP IN MIND, WE DID NOT ANALYZE THE DECK ISOLATED.

SO ANYTHING THAT I SAY TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THIS QUOTE UNQUOTE CULTURAL DISTRICT THAT'S BEEN THAT'S BEING CREATED.

AND SO THE TOTAL PARKING SPACES THAT YOU SEE IN THE RED BOX IS WHAT WE'VE DETERMINED, UTILIZING SHARED PARKING AND TDM MEASURES IS THE TOTAL NUMBER OF SPACES THAT ARE NEEDED A COST OF, UH, FOR EACH ONE USES.

AND THEN FROM THAT EXISTING INVENTORY, BASED ON THE DECONSTRUCTION OF EITHER ONE OF THE OPTIONS WE LOSE, SOME OF THAT EXIST FOR HAVING TO ADD SOME NET NEW SPACES TO REPLACE WHAT'S BEING LOST AND THEN GET TO WHERE WE NEED TO BE.

AND SO THAT'S, THAT'S WHAT THE ORANGE AND THE RED BOXES MEAN FOR EACH ONE OF THOSE OPTIONS.

OKAY.

AND THEN, UM, CAN SOMEBODY SPEAK TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION AND WHY THEY RECOMMENDED IT? YEAH, YES.

I CAN SPEAK TO THAT ONE.

UM, THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION RECOMMENDED AGAINST OPTION ONE B BECAUSE OF ITS RELATIONSHIP TO THE TRAIL.

UM, UH, HELPFUL GRAPHIC TO SHOW WHILE WE TALKED ABOUT IT MIGHT BE SLIDE 19.

THIS WAS A SECTION WE PUT TOGETHER AFTER THAT DISCUSSION TO MAYBE BETTER ILLUSTRATE WHAT THE SITE PLAN DOESN'T SHOW, BUT THEY'VE, THEY FELT THAT THE LOCATION OF THE BUILDING THERE, UM, ENCROACHED UPON THE TRAIL TOO AGGRESSIVELY.

UM, ONE THING I DID WANT TO POINT OUT IS THAT WE, WE TOOK A PHOTO FROM THE TRAIL IN THIS LOCATION.

THERE IS A VERY FOREST, A VERY WOODED BUFFER.

UM, AND THIS SITE IN THIS AREA ALSO OF ABOUT 23 FEET ABOVE THE GRADE OF THE TRAIL.

UM, SO I DID JUST WANT TO ILLUSTRATE THAT RELATIONSHIP.

OKAY.

SO THAT WAS THE MAIN REASON THEY RECOMMENDED ONE A YES, YES.

FOR THE TRAIL RELATIONSHIP AND MAXIMIZING THE OPEN SPACE.

OKAY.

UH, THAT'S ALL THE QUESTIONS I HAVE, UH, OTHER COMMISSIONERS WITH QUESTIONS, UH, SEE, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER.

DID YOU GO BACK TO SLIDE 17, PLEASE? UM, WAS THERE A RECOMMENDATION FROM THE DESIGN COMMISSION? YES.

THE DESIGN COMMISSION WROTE A LETTER OF SUPPORT FOR ALL SITE PLAN OPTIONS.

THEY, THEY DIDN'T BACK ONE SPECIFICALLY, BUT THEY SUGGESTED THAT WHATEVER COUNCIL SUPPORTS THE PROJECT TEAMS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO LIMIT THE INTERRUPTION OF THE PARKLAND BASED, UM, EITHER BY THE HITLER ROADWAY OR, OR SIDEWALKS THAT INTERRUPT THE CONTINUOUS GREEN SPACE.

THANKS.

AND, UH, LOOKING AT, UH, WOULDN'T BE ON THIS SLIDE.

UH, THERE APPEARS TO BE, UH, IT APPEARS THAT IT CREATES A PUBLIC SPACE THAT IS TO THE EAST OF THE NEW DOHERTY CENTER AND IN BETWEEN THAT AND THE EXISTING PARK HEADQUARTERS.

UH, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE WHAT I'M LOOKING AT.

IT'S GOT A CIRCLE, UM, IN BETWEEN THOSE TWO, IS THAT A, IS THAT A LARGE PUBLIC SPACE AND IS THE IDEA THAT THAT WOULD BE USED FOR, UH, SOME SPECIFIC OR MORE GENERAL PUBLIC PURPOSES YOU'RE RIGHT.

THAT IT IS PUBLIC SPACE.

IT'S INTENDED TO BE A MORE, UM, FORMAL PROMINENCE TO THE PRIMARY ENTRY OF THE SPACE.

WE, WE DIDN'T DETAIL A SPECIFIC USE OF THAT GREEN, ALTHOUGH THERE'S THE RENDERING ON SLIDE 21 THAT SHOWS THAT BEING A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR INCORPORATION OF PUBLIC ART.

UM, THERE'S ALSO A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR THE PROJECT, HAVE A NATURAL RAIN GARDEN, UH, IN THIS LOCATION, WHICH COULD BE A PROMINENT SUSTAINABILITY ASPECT OF THE PROJECT.

UM, AND I BELIEVE UNDER ONE DAY IS I WAS LOOKING AT, UH, UM, THE RENDERINGS, UH, THAT MOVE THE, UH, THE NEW PARKING, THE UNDERGROUND PARKING TO THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE SITE WITH ACCESS ON TO ME AS WELL AS ACCESS FROM, UH, RIVERSIDE.

IS THAT CORRECT? AND IS THAT THE ONLY OPTION THAT DOES THAT THAT'S CORRECT.

[01:00:01]

THE UNIQUE OPTION IN THAT GARAGE ACCESS COULD BE FROM BOTH RESTAURANTS, RIGHT? UH, THE ONLY OPTION THAT, UH, ENVISIONED, UH, UH, GREEN SPACE ABOVE THE PARKING, OR WERE THERE OPTIONS FOR THAT ENTER ALL FOUR, WE ARE PROPOSING THAT THE PARKING SOLUTION AND ALL FOURS, THESE WOULDN'T BE UNDERGROUND.

UM, BUT ONE B AGAIN IS UNIQUE AND THAT, UM, THE LOCATION OF THE GARAGE IS PULLED CLOSER TO, TO ME ROAD.

AND WE WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY IN THAT LOCATION TO BUILD KIND OF A LARGER, MORE EFFICIENT FLOOR PLATE FOR THE STRUCTURED PARKING, I MEAN, DECK ENTIRELY OVER THE TOP OF THAT WITH GREEN ARTS.

THANKS.

ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS JONATHAN.

SORRY TO ANSWER THAT TO BE WITH THE DISTRICT, UH, WITH ONE A, LET'S SAY, UH, WE STILL HAVE A GREEN SPACE ABOVE THE PARKING GARAGE.

UH, IF WE PUT IT IN, IN THE SPOT BETWEEN THE EXISTING PART AND THAT THEATER, UM, OR THE, THE BUILDING WOULD COVER THE PARKING DECK.

GOTCHA.

OKAY.

UM, AND, UH, COULD YOU TALK JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE ISSUE FOR ONE B UM, IT'S VISIBILITY, UM, I GUESS BOTH FROM THE TRAIL IN PARTICULAR, BUT ALSO FROM, UH, MAYBE THE LITTLE LEAGUE FIELDS OR FROM ANYBODY LOOKING FROM, UH, THE, IS A CURVES AROUND AT, ACROSS FROM LUNA POINT.

JONATHAN, DO YOU WANT TO ADDRESS THAT? IS IT GOING TO BE, IS IT GOING TO BE VISIBLE HOW VISIBLE IT'S GOING TO BE FROM THE TRAIL AS KEVIN POINTED OUT, THERE'S KIND OF A FAIRLY DENSE VEGETATIVE BUFFER BETWEEN THE TRAIL AND THE BUTLER FOR SITE.

SO, UH, YOU MIGHT GET SLICES, TINY GLIMPSES OF THE BUILDING, UH, KNOW THAT SOMETHING'S THERE, BUT YOU'RE NOT REALLY GONNA SEE IT AS WELL.

UH, I THINK FROM ALL OF
