THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR THAT PROPOSAL IS FP 20 1505 ZERO 70, UM, T2 EXTENSION, ESPECIALLY TO, FOR TRAVAASA IMPROVEMENTS TO, UM, WHO THE AGENT IS.

RICHARD GQ.

HE GRABBED ME.

APPLICANT OWNERS ARE STILL, OR SOLIDAGO ELLA LLC.

ADDRESS OF THE SITE IS ONE THREE FIVE ZERO FM TWO SEVEN SIX NINE.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A THREE-YEAR EXTENSION TO A PREVIOUSLY APPROVED SITE PLAN.

THE APPROVED SITE PLAN INCLUDES THE CONSTRUCTION OF SIX NEW HOTEL MOTEL UNITS, AND SIX BUILDINGS, ACCESSORY TO PERSONAL IMPROVEMENT SERVICES.

ALL OF THE OCCUPIABLE BUILDINGS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED ALONG WITH THE WATER QUALITY AND DRAFTERS IN DETENTION FACILITIES.

THE APPLICANT IS SEEKING TO CONTINUE THE PROJECT PRESERVE OPTIONS FOR CORRECTIONS HAD A REVISION TO THE PROPOSED SITE PLAN TO ACCOMMODATE POTENTIAL INCREASES IN THE CAPACITY OF THE FACILITY BY THE PROJECT WAS ORIGINALLY SET TO EXPIRE ON DECEMBER 19TH, 2019, STAFF APPROVED A ONE YEAR EXTENSION TO 22, DECEMBER 19TH, 2020, AND THEN THE LATEST MAYOR'S ORDERS WITH REGARD TO THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE EXTENDED THE APPROVAL TO DECEMBER 31ST, 2021 OF THE STAFF.

IF ANY OF THAT, THEY'VE MET THE, THE, UM, STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FOR AN EXTENSION PERSON PURSUANT TO CODE, UM, AND ARE REQUESTING AN EXTENSION OF THEM FOR THREE YEARS FROM DECEMBER 31ST, 2021 TO DECEMBER 31ST, 2024,

[00:10:02]

I WAS AT, I'D BE HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS PER THE AGENDA SAYS DECEMBER, 1920, 23 WILL BE THE END OF THE THREE-YEAR EXTENSION.

AND FROM THEIR ORIGINAL EXPIRATION DATE, YOU MENTIONED 20, 24.

CAN YOU CLARIFY THAT? UM, WE WERE OVERTAKEN BY BY EVENT, THE MAYOR'S ORDER, UM, EXTENDED TO 2021, OR DID DECEMBER 31ST, 2021.

UM, WHILE THIS WAS IN PROCESS, I'M AFRAID I MIGHT NOT HAVE UPDATED THAT, THAT NOTE.

SO THEY GOT A, ESSENTIALLY A YEAR FROM, FROM THE MAYOR'S PANDEMIC RESPONSE, UM, JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO, AND THEN THE EXTENSION WOULD BE THREE YEARS ON TOP OF THAT.

OKAY.

SO, UM, ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, OR CAN WE HEAR FROM THE SPEAKER MS. PEREZ CHAIR? SO WE'LL HEAR FROM THE APPLICANT.

OKAY.

IS THE APPLICANT THERE? MY NAME IS RICHARD COUCH.

I'M WITH CUNNINGHAM ALLEN AND I'M REPRESENTING THE OWNER.

MY NAME IS ROBERT.

THE OWNER'S REPRESENTATIVE FOR TRAVAASA.

I'M NOT SURE IF THIS WAS MY POINT TO JUMP ON OR NOT.

IT IS I'LL LOOK AT THE SPEAKER LIST.

I HAVE APPLICANT RON ALBANY'S FIRST AND THEN MR. COUCH.

YES.

HELLO.

MY NAME IS ROBERT ALBANY'S.

UM, THE, UH, APPLICANT AND THE OWNERS REPRESENTATIVE FOR TRAVAASA, UH, ALONG WITH OUR CIVIL ENGINEERING FROM CUNNINGHAM ALLEN, WHO RICH COUCH IS PRESENT ON THE CALL AS WELL.

AND, UH, AS WAS SUMMED UP EARLIER, WE'RE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR A THREE-YEAR EXTENSION TO THE EXISTING SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT TO, UH, INSTEAD OF SOME OPTIONS DOWN THE ROAD.

SO THAT PRETTY MUCH IS THE SUMMARY OF, OF, UH, WHAT OUR INTENT IS.

AND MR. COUCH, DO YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING? UM, NOT, NOT NECESSARILY.

I MEAN, AS, AS RANDALL SAID, ALL THE IMPROVEMENTS ARE COMPLETED PER THE APPROVED DRAWINGS, UM, WATER, QUALITY, DETENTION, EVERYTHING IS BUILT.

AND, UM, WE'RE JUST ASKING FOR THIS EXTENSION TO ALLOW US TO, TO ALLOW THE OWNER TO CONSIDER SOME OPTIONS IN THE FUTURE, UH, TO EITHER DO A REVISION OR SOME KIND OF A CORRECTION TO THIS EXISTING SITE PLAN WITHOUT, YOU KNOW, HAVING TO GO BACK AND DO A NEW SITE PLAN APPLICATION.

SO THAT'S ALL I WOULD ADD.

OKAY.

SO YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND HEAR FROM THE SPEAKER THEN IT'S PEREZ.

ARE YOU ON THE PHONE? AND IF YOU'RE SPEAKING YOU'RE MUTED, IT'S OUR SIX TO UNMUTE YOURSELF.

MS. PETTIS IS YOU'LL SELECT STAR SIX ON YOUR PHONE, THEN PROCEED WITH YOUR REMARKS.

ANDREW, YOU SAID SHE WAS THERE EARLIER.

DO YOU THINK SHE MIGHT'VE GOTTEN DROPPED CHAIR? I HAVE HER, UH, SHOWING PRESENT ON THE TELECONFERENCE.

UM, MS. WOULD SELECT STAR SIX OR TRY DIALING BACK IN THERE.

YOU ARE, UH, MS. PELLISSIPPI WILL PROVIDE YOUR HOPE.

YOU SELECTED STAR SIX AGAIN, MS. PETTIS, IF YOU'LL UNMUTE YOURSELF AND THEN PROVIDE YOUR REMARKS.

HELLO, MY NAME IS CYNTHIA.

I REPRESENT THE NEIGHBORS, UH, DOWN BELOW IT AT, UH, INDIGENOUS WOMEN'S NETWORK PLAN ONE 35, 26, UH, FARM TO MARKET ROAD 27 69.

AND SO, UM,

[00:15:02]

WE WOULD LIKE TO DROP THIS ON THE AGENDA, UH, PRESENT MS. PEREZ.

WE CAN HEAR YOU IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE.

I JUST HEARD DROP FROM THE AGENDA.

ARE YOU STILL THERE? I REMEMBER, BUT SHE MADE IT HERSELF AGAIN.

I CAN HEAR YOU.

OKAY.

KEEP GOING.

OKAY.

WELL, THE STRUCTURES I'VE BEEN READING NOTHING BUT INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PAST THREE DAYS.

UM, WE, UH, WE WENT TO GO INVESTIGATE THE STAR DAMAGE, UH, DURING THE SNOW, AND IT'S WHEN WE FOUND, UH, THE HEARING NOTICE.

AND SO I STARTED TO MAKE A FEW CALLS AROUND THOSE OFFICE AND ELSA, AND THEN, UH, PLAINLY ON, UH, THIS LAST, I THINK I RECEIVED THAT ON FEBRUARY THE 18TH.

AND I SPOKE WITH LAST FRIDAY WITH CHRISTINE MARTIN AND JOY.

AND SO WE WERE TRYING TO GET A HANDLE ON THIS BECAUSE WE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE IMPACT IS TO OUR WATER.

WE HAVE A WELL WATER AS WELL, AND BECAUSE, UH, WE, WE HAVE, UH, OTHER ISSUES AT HAND THAT WE WANT TO ADDRESS.

THE FIRST ONE WOULD BE, UH, THIS, UH, NO PATIENT IS OLDER CEDAR ROOF THAT WE USE FOR THE ENDANGERED GOLDEN CHEEK LOBSTER.

WE ALSO HAVE THE ISSUE OF, UH, THE LOWER WATER TABLE THAT IS GOING BECAUSE OF THE DEVELOPMENT.

AND, UH, WE ALSO WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE COULD GET AS MUCH INFORMATION AS WE COULD.

SO WE WOULD HAVE GONE ABOUT WITH THE HELP OF, UH, SOME SUGGESTIONS FROM SOME OF THE PEOPLE FROM THE TEXAS, UH, NATURAL RESOURCES TO REQUEST RECORDS AND THE TEXAS COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY TO ASK ALSO FOR RECORDS.

SO WE COULD GAUGE THE DEVELOPMENT THAT THEY'RE TAKING IN THE FUTURE.

AND SO WE'RE ASKING FOR, WE CAN'T ADDRESS ALL OF THESE ISSUES OF OURSELVES, SO WE CAN BE BETTER INFORMED BEFORE YOU WOULD TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CONTENDERS, BUT ALSO ON THE NOTES AND READINGS THAT I DID, IT WENT 20, 23, NOT 2024 CONSIDERATIONS.

I DID MAKE THE CALL RAMP THE MESSAGES CAUSE THE ONE THAT I FINALLY GOT THE MEETING WITH CHRISTINE HOLMES, BARTON, AND THEN I WENT ABOUT, OKAY, MS. PEREZ, I THINK THAT IS YOUR TIME.

UM, AND I, UH, NEXT I HAVE TO GIVE THE APPLICANT A CHANCE TO REBUT THOSE STATEMENTS.

SO, UM, MR. UM, COUCH OR MR. ALBANY'S IF YOU WANT TO RESPOND.

YEAH.

THIS IS ONE OF THEM.

YEAH, YEAH.

UM, I'M ON HERE.

UM, WELL ALL OF THE WATER AND WASTEWATER FACILITIES, WELL, AGAIN, EVERYTHING FOR THE APPROVED SITE PLAN HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED.

ALL OF THE WATER WELLS AND THE WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY HAS BEEN PERMITTED BY TCEQ AND HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE WHATEVER FEW ADDITIONAL UNITS THAT THE OWNER IS CONSIDERING TO ADD.

SO, UM, AND AS FAR AS THE GOLDEN CHEEK WARBLER ISSUE, THERE IS A CONSERVATION EASEMENT THAT COMPLETELY SURROUNDS THIS PROPERTY.

WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT ABLE TO DO ANY DEVELOPMENT IN THAT AREA.

AND, UM, SO THAT WOULD BE MY RESPONSE TO, TO THOSE ISSUES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO DO I SEE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND START DISCUSSION? OR WHAT'S YOUR DINKLER? OH, YOU'RE ON MUTE.

[00:20:05]

OKAY.

OH, HEY COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

I WAS GOING TO SECOND.

OKAY.

UM, SO THE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF CLOSING THE PUBLIC, HEARING THOSE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THAT LOOKS LIKE UNANIMOUS.

AND SO LET'S GO TO QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONER DINKLER I HAVE A QUESTION OF STAFF, UM, WHAT CONSTITUTES OR REVISION OF A PLAN ON WHAT CONSTITUTES, UM, A NEED FOR AN ENTIRE NEW SITE PLAN? I UNDERSTAND THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ISSUE, BUT I REALLY HAVE NO SENSE OF HOW MUCH MORE THE APPLICANT IS TRYING TO ADD.

SO WHEN IS IT A REVISION? WHEN IS IT A, A REQUIREMENT FOR NEW SITE PLAN? GOOD AFTERNOON, COMMISSIONERS CHRISTINE BARTON HOMES.

UM, THIS SIDE IS OUT IN THE ETJ, WHICH MAKES THE ELEMENT OR THE, UH, THE ISSUE OF A REVISION A LITTLE BIT OF A YEAR.

UH, TYPICALLY WE SAY THAT A REVISION CONSTITUTES ANYTHING THAT DOES NOT HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON ADJOINING PROPERTIES AND NEIGHBORS AND IN THE CITY.

UM, TYPICALLY IT DOES NOT INCLUDE ADDITIONAL BUILDINGS, BUT IN THE ETJ BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ANY ZONING AND WE DON'T REGULATE BUILDINGS.

UM, THE IDEA OF NOT SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTING ADJACENT PROPERTY OWNERS AND NEIGHBORS, IT'S STILL THERE, BUT BUILDINGS CAN BE ADDED VIA A REVISION.

UM, IF IT'S SOMETHING THAT WOULD REQUIRE AN EXTENSIVE REWORKING OF THE SITE, LIKE THERE'S A LOT OF ENGINEERING INVOLVED.

THEN AT THAT POINT, WE WOULD WANT TO SEE A FULL SITE PLAN JUST TO ENSURE THAT EVERYTHING WAS FULLY REVIEWED.

BUT IN THIS CASE, UM, THIS PROJECT HAS ACTUALLY BEEN IN THE WORKS SINCE 2016.

UM, I WAS THE ORIGINAL CASE MANAGER ON THE SITE PLAN AND THE PREVIOUS REVISIONS AND EXTENSIONS.

AND THERE'S BEEN SOME MOVING AROUND OF, UM, BUILDINGS ON THE SITE.

IT'S A RECONFIGURATION, BUT NOT, UH, ANYTHING THAT IS A HUGE CHANGE THAT COULD BE CONSIDERED A MASSIVE CHANGE TO THE SITE.

IT'S MORE JUST CHANGING THE SIZES OF EXISTING APPROVED BUILDING AND CHANGING THE LAYOUT A LITTLE BIT.

AND IF I COULD ASK ONE MORE QUESTION, UM, UH, IS THE CONSERVATION EASEMENT REQUIRED BY FISH OR ARE WE REQUIRING IT? UM, THE CITY COUNTY, UH, FOR THAT QUESTION I WOULD DEFER TO THE, UM, APPLICANTS.

I, I KNOW THE SITE HAS A LOT OF TOPOGRAPHY AND IT HAS A LOT OF CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES.

SO THERE, THE MAJORITY OF THE SITE IS SET ASIDE AS A CONSERVATION AREA, BUT AS WHAT THE, WHAT INSTIGATED THAT, UM, I DON'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS RICHARD COUCH AGAIN.

UH, THE EASEMENT IS WITH, UH, THE TRAVIS COUNTY.

IT'S A CONSERVATION EASEMENT.

AND, UM, THAT'S PRETTY MUCH, YOU KNOW, MOST OF THE DEVELOPMENT IS LIKE UP ON THE TOP OF THE HILL AND THAT CONSERVATION EASEMENT SURROUNDS, YOU KNOW, THE TOP OF THE HILL.

SO CLEARLY ANY OTHER IMPROVEMENTS THAT WE WOULD BE PROPOSING WOULD BE OUTSIDE OF THAT EASEMENT UP ON THE TOP OF THE HILL.

YOU KNOW, THERE'S NOT A LOT OF ROOM LEFT THAT WE CAN, THAT WE CAN UTILIZE UP THERE.

UM, BASED ON THE, SOME OF THE RESTRICTIONS ON CONSTRUCTION ON SLOPES AND WHATNOT.

SO, UM, THAT'S, THAT'S THE, THAT'S THE DEAL ON THE CONSERVATION? ISN'T IT IS WITH TRAVIS COUNTY.

UH, YEAH.

HAVE YOU GONE TO FOOD OR NOT? YES, SIR.

THERE WAS A EFFICIENT FISH AND WILDLIFE WAS DEFINITELY INVOLVED IN THAT WHOLE PROCESS.

YES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

IT LOOKS LIKE COMMISSIONER KING HAS HIS HAND UP.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, CHAIR.

AND, UH, TH THIS QUESTION IS FOR STAFF, YOU KNOW, I, I DO APPRECIATE THE NEIGHBOR'S CONCERN ABOUT, UH, THE UNCERTAINTY OF THIS PROJECTS AND POTENTIAL CHANGES TO WHAT THEY'RE PLANNING TO DO.

AND SO MY QUESTION TO STEP IS, UH, I GUESS I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS, SO, UH, WHY THREE YEARS, COULDN'T IT BE A ONE-YEAR EXTENSION AND COME BACK AND THEN WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR THE COMMISSION TO GO AHEAD AND EXTEND IT TWO MORE YEARS.

UH, AND THEN THE SECOND QUESTION IS WHEN THERE ARE CHANGES TO THESE, UH, THESE KINDS OF PROJECTS, UH, THAT ARE REQUESTING EXTENSIONS, AND THEY ALSO INCLUDE POTENTIAL CHANGES AS BEEN REFERENCED HERE, IT DOESN'T EXPLAIN WHAT THOSE CHANGES MIGHT BE, BUT IT SAYS

[00:25:01]

THEY'RE CONTEMPLATING SOME CHANGES IN WHAT THEY'RE PLANNING TO DO THERE.

AND I CAN UNDERSTAND HOW THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE NEIGHBORS MIGHT FEEL UNSETTLED ABOUT THAT.

WHAT, SO WILL THE NEIGHBORS BE NOTIFIED ABOUT THOSE POTENTIAL CHANGES BEFORE THEY'VE BEEN APPROVED BY STAFF BEFORE THE SITE PLAN HAS BEEN AMENDED OR CHANGED OR WHATEVER APPROVED BY STAFF? HOW WILL THE NEIGHBORS, WHAT IS THAT PROCESS TO NOTIFY THE NEIGHBORS AND KEEP THEM UP TO DATE ABOUT THE CHANGING NATURE OF THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT FOR THE, FOR THE FIRST QUESTION, UM, THREE-YEAR EXTENSIONS ARE TYPICAL, UH, OCCASIONALLY FIVE YEARS OCCASIONALLY LONGER FOR, UM, NOT-FOR-PROFITS CHURCHES AND SCHOOLS, BUT THREE YEARS IS CRITICAL THREE YEARS WITH THE LIFE OF THE ORIGINAL SITE PLAN FROM THE DATE THAT THE PERMIT IS ISSUED UNTIL EXPIRATION.

AND SO THIS IS ESSENTIALLY GRANTING IT THAT SAME AMOUNT OF TIME ALL OVER AGAIN.

UM, FOR THE SECOND QUESTION, UH, REVISIONS ARE NOT NOTIFIED, UM, BUT THERE'S A SECTION IN, UH, RANDY'S REPORT THAT MENTIONED CORRECTIONS.

UH, WE HAVE CHANGED OUR CORRECTION PROCESS THAT USED TO BE HANDLED THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE CENTER.

AND, UM, DURING THE PANDEMIC, THE DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE CENTER HAS BEEN SORT OF WRAPPED INTO LAND USE REVIEW.

AND SO CORRECTIONS ARE NOT BEING DONE ANYMORE.

THEY ARE NOT SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO BE PROCESSED BY THE CITY OF AUSTIN ANYMORE, UNLESS A SITE PLAN IS ACTIVE.

SO THAT USED TO BE SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD HAVE DONE ON SITE PLANS, UH, YOU KNOW, CRIED 10 YEARS OLD OR SO, AS LONG AS THEY HAD BEEN COMPLETED.

SO A CORRECTION IS A MUCH SMALLER SCALE THAN A REVISION.

A CORRECTION MIGHT BE SOMETHING LIKE, YOU KNOW, ADDING AN ENTRYWAY TO A BUILDING OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THERE'S A LIMIT ON SQUARE FOOTAGE.

UM, NEITHER ONE OF THOSE ARE NOTICED, BUT THEY ARE UPDATED IN THE ABC PORTAL.

AND, UM, THIS IS PEREZ OR ANY OF THE OTHER NEIGHBORS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THIS PROJECT.

UH, THEY CAN ALWAYS GET AHOLD OF US THROUGH EMAIL OR PHONE, AND WE CAN CHECK THE ABC PORTAL WITH THEM AND SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING PLANNED GOING ON THERE.

UH, TYPICALLY REVISIONS AND CORRECTIONS ARE DONE IN RESPONSE TO SITE CONDITIONS THAT EITHER WERE MAYBE NOT FULLY UNCOVERED DURING ENGINEERING OR THAT, UM, WERE THAT CHANGED DURING ENGINEERING.

SO SAY YOU HAVE THE BUILDING FOOTPRINT HERE, YOU GET OUT TO THE SITE, YOU FIND THAT MAYBE THE FOIL WON'T QUITE SUPPORT IT IN THAT EXACT LOCATION.

YOU HAVE TO MOVE IT THREE FEET TO THE EAST.

THAT'S, THAT'S THE SORT OF THING THAT WE TYPICALLY SEE AS A REVISION IT'S, IT'S SORT OF A REFINEMENT AND AN EVOLUTION OF WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN APPROVED.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR THAT INFORMATION.

I JUST, AS A LITTLE FOLLOW ON AS IT, IS IT CORRECT THAT THE NEIGHBORS AND ANYONE REALLY CAN SIGN ON AS AN INTERESTED PARTY IN THAT, IN THAT CASE, THAT PARTICULAR CASE, AND THEN BE NOTIFIED WHEN THERE ARE CHANGES TO THE SITE PLAN.

IS THAT A WAY THAT THEY COULD THEN BE NOTIFIED BECAUSE YOU CAN IMAGINE PEOPLE ARE BUSY WITH THEIR LIVES AND THEY DON'T, THEY CAN'T SIT AROUND AND SAY, WAS THERE A CHANGE TO THE PLAN? LET ME CALL, LET ME CALL TODAY.

LET ME CALL TOMORROW, LET ME CALL NEXT WEEK.

SO THERE NEEDS TO BE A WAY TO PUSH OUT THAT INFORMATION TO PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN MAYBE REGISTER EASILY AND SAY, HEY, JUST KEEP ME IN INFORMED ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON ON THIS PROJECT.

CAN THEY DO THAT AS AN INTERESTED PARTY IN THIS CASE FOR REVISIONS AND CORRECTIONS, NOT AT THIS TIME, UH, THAT THAT WOULD ACTUALLY TAKE A CHANGE IN THE, IN THE CODE AND THE PROCESS FOR EXTENSIONS.

YES, BECAUSE FOR THIS SITE PLAN, FROM HERE ON OUT, ANY EXTENSIONS, THEY REQUESTS ARE GOING TO REQUIRE, UH, A HEARING BEFORE YOU ALL AND YOUR REVIEW AND APPROVAL.

SO THEY WOULD GET NOTIFIED OF THAT.

THANK YOU.

AND MY LAST, MY LAST, I GUESS QUESTION OR POINT HERE IS THAT, YOU KNOW, I JUST GET A LITTLE BIT WORRIED ABOUT THESE PROJECTS THAT GO ON.

THIS ONE IS NOW, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S IN ITS FIFTH YEAR.

AND I UNDERSTAND THERE WAS THE PANDEMIC THAT WE WERE GOING THROUGH THAT STEEL, UH, BUT, UH, THEY DID GET A ONE YEAR EXTENSION AUTOMATICALLY.

UM, AND, AND SO THAT HELPED TO MITIGATE THAT TO SOME EXTENT, BUT I JUST WORRY ABOUT PROJECTS THAT THREE MORE YEARS ON THIS IS GOING TO BE A TOTAL OF, UH, EIGHT YEARS NOW.

UH, AND YOU KNOW, THAT'S A LONG TIME.

AND SO WHAT I WORRY ABOUT IS THAT FUNDAMENTALS CHANGE SO MUCH THAT THE NATURE OF THE PROJECT ITSELF HAS CHANGED.

AND, AND I, AND, AND IT DIDN'T BENEFIT FROM AN INITIAL INITIAL SITE PLANNING PROCESS WHERE THERE IS MORE DISCUSSION AND MORE INVOLVEMENT FROM THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

IT JUST GOES ON AND ON AND ON, AND THEN CHANGE AND MAJOR CHANGES CAN HAPPEN WITH, WITHOUT, YOU KNOW, WITHOUT HAVING A NEW SITE PLAN.

AND I JUST, I JUST WANT TO MAKE THAT POINT THAT I WORRY THAT, UH, GETTING THESE LONG EXTENSIONS, I THINK CREATES SOME

[00:30:01]

RISKS, UH, AND SOME UNCERTAINTY FOR THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

THANK YOU.

I, I, I DO THINK THAT THE POINT OF THE EXTENSION IS NOT NECESSARILY THAT THE IDEALLY THE SITE PLAN HAS ALREADY BEEN APPROVED AND ONLY THE REVISIONS OR CORRECTIONS WOULDN'T, UM, HAVE A, YOU KNOW, GOING OUT TO THE PUBLIC TO SEEK THEIR APPROVAL OR TO SEEK TO COME BEFORE US.

SO THERE ARE, AS I THINK, UM, SHE JUST, THE STAFF JUST EXPLAINED THAT IT WAS THAT IT'S USUALLY A SMALLER CHANGE, LIKE MOVING THE FRONT DOOR OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SO.

OKAY.

I UNDERSTAND CHAIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR THAT CLARIFICATION.

WHAT I WAS REALLY TRYING TO POINT OUT IS THE UNCERTAINTY OF THE CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN REFERENCED IN THIS PARTICULAR EXTENSION THAT, THAT THE DEVELOPER, THE APPLICANT HAS SAID, THEY EXPECT TO HAVE SOME, SOME SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THERE.

AND I THAT'S, THAT'S ALL I'M REFERRING TO.

THANK YOU CHAIR.

AND THANK YOU, STEPH.

OKAY.

ANY MORE QUESTIONS? ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? ONE QUICK QUESTION.

ARE THE, OH, I'M SORRY, MR. UH, COMMISSIONER KOSTA, PLEASE.

UH, NO NEED.

OKAY.

I'VE ALREADY TAKEN TWO QUESTIONS.

UH, IT'S A QUESTION FOR THE APPLICANT.

HAVE YOU MET WITH THE, UM, NEIGHBORHOOD PARTICULARLY ABOUT THEIR CONCERNS ABOUT THE IMPACT ON, WELL, UH, THIS IS, UH, ROBERT ALBANY'S AGAIN.

UM, WELL, WE'RE, WE, UM, HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THIS PROCESS FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE FOLLOWED EVERY, UM, REQUIREMENT, EVERY CODE.

UM, AND AS WE STARTED OUR CONVERSATION THAT ALL OF THE, UH, CONSTRUCTION RELATED TO WELLS AND, AND RECENT ADDITIONS HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND IS, HAS BEEN LONG FINISHED.

SO WE, WE WERE NOT AWARE OF ANY ISSUES.

UH, WE, WE AGAIN HAD EVERYTHING INSPECTED AND, AND FOLLOWED EVERY GUIDELINE AND REQUIREMENT.

UM, DURING THAT PROCESS, WHICH ENDED, I, I GUESS, ABOUT A YEAR AGO, THIS, UH, AGAIN, THIS IS, UH, REQUEST IS ACTUALLY JUST TO GIVE US THE OPTION TO DO SOME, UM, I ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND THAT JUST, YEAH.

AND LAST QUESTION, IS IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO JUST GO FOR A TWO YEAR EXTENSION? WERE YOU ALL ABLE TO WORK ON ANY ENGINEERING DURING THIS YEAR? I I'VE BEEN TELEWORKING, SO, UM, I THINK SOME OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH MARKET.

UM, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, HOTELS ARE A LITTLE DICEY RIGHT NOW.

UM, SO IS IT POSSIBLE JUST TO EXTEND THIS FOR TWO YEARS, IF YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN TWEAKING IT OR ARE YOU REALLY LOOKING FOR THREE? YES.

MA'AM WE ACTUALLY REALLY NEED THREE.

AND AGAIN, TRYING TO FOLLOW WHAT IS, UM, TYPICAL AND I WILL, I WILL TELL YOU THAT WE ACTUALLY HAVE NOT, UH, GONE INTO THE ENGINEERING.

UM, AND, AND FRANKLY, WE HAVEN'T DECIDED IF WE'RE EVEN GOING TO DO THIS PROJECT, AS YOU STATED, THE HOTEL AND WELLNESS BUSINESS HAS TAKEN A HUGE HIT IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS.

AND, UM, SO WE DID NOT START CIVIL ENGINEERING.

WE, WE, WE HAVE NOT STARTED THE PROCESS AND AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, THAT ENGINEERING AND DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION DRAWING PROCESS ALONE CAN TAKE, UH, 12 TO 14 MONTHS.

SO THAT, THAT BITES INTO THAT THREE YEARS PRETTY QUICKLY.

SO, UH, WITHOUT CARRYING ON HERE, WE, WE FELT THAT THREE YEARS WAS, WAS THE RIGHT AND REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COMMISSIONER KOSTA.

THANK YOU, CHAIR.

ACTUALLY, I THINK THE APPLICANT ANSWERED MY QUESTION.

I JUST WANTED CLARIFICATION THAT MOST OR THE MAJORITY OR ALL OF THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION HAD BEEN COMPLETED ON THE SITE AND THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF US APPROVING AN EXTRA THREE YEARS WOULD BE THAT THERE'S A POTENTIAL ADDITION OF A FEW UNITS ONSITE.

NON-EXPANSION NOT AN INCREASE OR ANYTHING OF THAT.

I JUST WANTED TO BE CLEAR THAT THAT WAS WHAT WAS GOING ON.

YES, SIR.

THAT IS EXACTLY RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

ANYONE ELSE? DO I SEE A MOTION TABLE? WHERE'S YOUR KING.

[00:35:01]

I MOVED TO FOR A TWO YEAR EXTENSION TO THE SIDE PLAN, STARTING OUT A WHAT DATE? UH, THE, I GUESS, WHAT IS, WHAT IS THE DATE? UH, I GUESS WHEN, I GUESS IT WOULD BE DECEMBER 31ST, 2021.

PART OF WHAT I'M CONFUSED BY IS THIS POSTED AS BEING DECEMBER, 1920 23, BUT THE PRESENTATION HAD DECEMBER 19, 20, 24.

UM, WHAT I WAS GOING TO SUGGEST WAS WHY DON'T WE HAVE A EXTENSION FOR, TILL THE NEXT MEETING AND BRING IT BACK WITH THE CORRECT DATE AND GIVE THE APPLICANT, GIVE THE SPEAKER A TIME TO TALK TO STAFF AND TALK TO THE APPLICANT AND GET THINGS STRAIGHTENED OUT.

AND HOPEFULLY THIS CAN GO ON A CONSENT AGENDA NEXT TIME.

UH, BUT THERE'S KIND OF A POSTING AIR ALMOST ON THIS, CAUSE IT SAYS DECEMBER, 1920, 23, BUT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE 2024.

UM, SO IF YOU DON'T GET A SECOND, I WAS GOING TO MAKE A MOTION TO CONTINUE THIS UNTIL THE NEXT MEETING AND GIVE EVERYBODY A CHANCE TO TALK MORE AND GET THE AGENDA CHAIR.

I WITHDRAW MY MOTION SO THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER SMITH CAN MAKE HIS MOTION.

I MAKE A MOTION THAT WE CAN CHANGE THIS MOTION.

THEN I MAKE A MOTION TO CONTINUE THIS TO THE NEXT MEETING AND GIVE THE APPLICANT AND THE, UH, COLLAR I, YOU HAVE TO VISIT WITH STAFF AND TALK TO EACH OTHER AND CLARIFY THE ACTUAL EXPIRATION DATE.

AND HOPEFULLY IT COMES ON A CONSENT AGENDA AT THAT POINT.

YES.

THAT YES.

YES.

OKAY.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.

OKAY.

LET'S SEE.

NANA MIS ARE WE CAPTURING? IS UH, MR. KING, ARE YOU STILL CAPTURING EVERYTHING THERE? OKAY.

SO I WILL MOVE ON

[B1. Rezoning: C14-2020-0131 - FPT Apartments; District 5 ]

TO ITEM B ONE NOW, AND WE WILL HEAR FROM STAFF.

OH, WE HAVE A SET PRESENTATION FIRST.

YES.

RIGHT WHEN WE'RE COMMISSIONING.

SO IT'S DISCUSSION POST-APPOINTMENT.

SO YOU'LL FIRST HEAR FOR THE TWO INDIVIDUALS IN FAVOR OF THE POSTPONEMENT AND THEN THE TWO INDIVIDUALS OPPOSED TO THE POSTPONEMENT.

OKAY.

SO THE FIRST SPEAKER OR ANY FAVOR OF POSTPONEMENT, SORRY.

I'M LOOKING AT THE SPEAKER LIST AND THAT'S DIFFERENT, RIGHT.

WE'LL BEGIN WITH MS. ADAMS. OKAY.

THANK YOU.

IS ADAMS, ARE YOU ON THE LINE? HI, THIS IS MICHELLE ADAMS. THANK YOU COMMISSIONERS FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION FOR THIS REQUEST.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE APPLICANT DID NOT RESPOND TO OUR REQUEST TO MEET AGAIN REGARDING OUR CONCERNS AT A RECENT MEETING WITH THE AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT, IT WAS CONFIRMED THAT THE APPLICANT'S ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC STUDY UTILIZING THE MESSENGER'S TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS, WHICH SHOWS A LOSS OF SERVICE AT SLAUGHTER AND BELLBROOK TO A FAILING F AND DAVID MORE TO AN E DOES NOT ACTUALLY INCLUDE THE UPCOMING APPROVED CHANGES TO THE BILL BROKEN FODDER IN INTERSECTION.

THEREFORE THE STUDY DOES NOT ACCURATELY REFLECT THE INTERSECTIONS LOSS OF SERVICE RATING.

THEREFORE WE DON'T HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION NECESSARY FOR THE COMMISSIONERS TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION ABOUT THIS CASE.

YET OUR NEIGHBORHOOD HAS REQUESTED ATD INCLUDE THE NEW INFORMATION WITHIN THE STUDY.

AS THE INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS COULD SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGE THE LOSS OF SERVICE AND THEREFORE THE OVERALL REQUIREMENTS OF ANY PROPOSED ZONING FOR THE SUBJECT PARCEL.

THE TRAFFIC STUDY, WE ARE REQUESTING WOULD NOT REQUIRE A FULL TIA, BUT RATHER AN ADJUSTMENT TO THE EXISTING STUDY, WHICH CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH ATD OR AN OUTSIDE ENGINEER, WHICH OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS WILLING TO WORK ON.

IT WAS ALSO CONFIRMED AT THIS MEETING THAT THE AUSTIN FIRE DEPARTMENT'S INPUT REGARDING THE FIRE RISK AND EVACUATION ISSUES WERE NOT REVIEWED AS PART OF THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION.

OUR MEETING WITH ATD ENDED WITH A RECOMMENDATION FROM WENDY THAT OUR NEIGHBORHOOD REQUEST TO POSTPONE THAT TO THE HEARING SO THAT WE COULD EXPLORE THESE ISSUES FURTHER.

IN ADDITION TO THE NEW TRAFFIC INFORMATION, THERE HAVE BEEN CHANGES IN ZAP COMMISSIONERS, AS YOU KNOW, AND WE HAVE NOT HAD THE ADEQUATE TIME TO SCHEDULE AND TALK TO THE NEW MEMBERS PRIOR TO THIS CASE.

BEING HEARD, WE FEEL THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT AS THE BACKGROUND MATERIALS, DON'T DISCUSS OUR NEIGHBORHOOD CONCERNS REGARDING FLOODING AND FIRE, AND THEY DO NOT ACCURATELY ADDRESS THE TRAFFIC SCENARIOS AT BILL AND POTTER.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE THAT CONSIDERATION TOWARDS THIS POSTPONEMENT, WHICH WOULD ALLOW THE NECESSARY TIME REQUIRED TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE MESSINGER TIA CREATE MODELING FOR THE FUTURE CONDITIONS, HAVE ADDITIONAL DISCUSSIONS AND COME UP WITH A WIN-WIN SOLUTION FOR THE MOST IDEAL ZONING FOR THE DEVELOPER, THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE CITY.

THIS MEETING IS ALSO FALLING

[00:40:01]

ON SPRING BREAK, WHICH UNFORTUNATELY LIMITS THE AVAILABILITY OF SEVERAL MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY THAT HAVE BEEN AND WOULD LIKE TO REMAIN INVOLVED THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS.

THANK YOU, MS. ADAMS AND MS. VENN HOUSE IS NEXT SPIN HOUSE.

ARE YOU ON THE LINE, MR. VAN HOUSLEY FEEL SELECT STAR SIX, STAR SIX IS NOT FUNCTIONING.

IF HE COULD CALL BACK INTO THE NUMBER.

THANK YOU.

IS IT OKAY IF WE GO AHEAD AND, OH, HELLO.

WE MOVE ON TO THE OTHER SPEAKERS.

I'M IN OPPOSITION OF THE POSTPONEMENT.

THAT WOULD BE MR. YOUNG, MR. VAN HOUSE NOW.

OKAY, GO AHEAD, MS. VAN HOUSE, MY APOLOGIES.

HELLO COMMISSIONERS.

UM, THANKS FOR CONSIDERING OUR POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS.

WE BELIEVE THAT SUGGESTED POSTPONEMENTS TO MAY 4TH WILL ALLOW US TO ENGAGE WITH ENGINEERS AS WELL AS ATD AND OTHER EXPERTS TO FURTHER ASSESS THE IMPACTS OF THIS DEVELOPMENT ON OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY.

AS YOU MAY KNOW, AS SOON AS THE DEVELOPMENT GOES INTO THE ADMINISTRATIVE SITE PLANNING PHASE, THE CITY MUST FOLLOW THE EXISTING CODE.

THE CITY NOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO MAKE RECOMMENDED CHANGES AFTER IT GOES THROUGH ZONING.

AS WE RECENTLY LEARNED FROM THE CITY PLANNING OFFICE, THE ZONING IS WHERE OUR VOICE MUST BE HEARD.

THE EXISTING CODE, UNFORTUNATELY DOES NOT PROPERLY ADDRESS THE UNIQUE ISSUES RELATED TO WILDFIRE, URBAN INTERFACE, FLOODING AND TRAFFIC REPRESENTED IN THIS SPECIFIC CASE, UNTIL WE HAVE AN UPDATED CODE THAT REFLECT THE CURRENT ZONING ENVIRONMENT OF AUSTIN, WE ASKED FOR A MORE THOROUGH LOOK INTO CASES LIKE THESE AND TO TAKE A MORE CAREFUL LOOK AT THE CONDITIONS THAT IMPACT THE SAFETY OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS.

CURRENT RESIDENTS, WE ASKED FOR POSTPONEMENT AND AN EFFORT TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPACTS AND TO MAKE THE BEST DECISION FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE COMMUNITY, WHICH HELPED MAKE AUSTIN SPECIAL AND A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, MR. YOUNG IN OPPOSITION TO THE POSTPONEMENT, ARE YOU THERE? MY NAME IS DOUG YOUNG.

I'M WITH GAVIN BARKLEY AND YOUNG, AND I REPRESENTED THE APPLICANT FPP.

OH.

UM, I DON'T MEAN TO BE UNCOOPERATIVE, BUT, UM, THE CONCERN IS THAT THIS HEARING WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 5TH.

THE APPLICANT ASKED FOR A POSTPONEMENT, UH, FOR TWO WEEKS IN ORDER TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH THE, UH, NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS AND MEETINGS WERE HELD WITH BOTH.

I ADMIT THAT THEY APPEARED TO BE UNPREPARED.

AND SO THE APPLICANT AGREED TO ANOTHER ONE MONTH EXTENSION TO GIVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS TIME TO DO SOME INVESTIGATION.

I OFFERED TO MEET AGAIN.

I HOPE THAT MS. ADAMS, MS. ZEN, THE HOUSE WOULD, UH, WOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I DID TRY TO BE HELPFUL.

UM, AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT THEY'RE WRONG FOR NOT HAVING GOTTEN EVERYTHING DONE THAT THEY WANT TO GET DONE, BUT WE ARE NOW MORE THAN TWO MONTHS OUT FROM THE ORIGINAL HEARING.

AND ANOTHER, A COUPLE OF MONTHS, UH, THE RICE PROPOSED THE, UH, THE ADVOCATE IS PAYING, UM, EXTENSION FEES.

IT'S A KIND OF A TRADITIONAL ARRANGEMENT WHERE HE HAS AN OPTION ON A PURCHASE OF THE PROPERTY AND IS DOING HIS DUE DILIGENCE NOW.

AND HE HAS TO PAY WHEN THERE ARE DELAYS AND HE'S WAS ALREADY DONE.

SO, UH, BUT HE UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES NOW YOU WOULD CONTEND THAT IT'S MAYBE NOT FAIR.

UM, AS I UNDERSTAND THE, UH, THE REASON FOR THE DELAY IS TO REVIEW, UH, AN ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENT TO THE INTERSECTION OF BOTH BROOKE AND STARTED LANE, WHICH WILL ONLY PROVE TRAFFIC CONDITIONS.

I THINK EVERYONE WOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THAT.

I DON'T THINK REVEALING THAT IS GOING TO YIELD ANY INFORMATION THAT WOULD CREATE MORE CONCERN.

UM, I BROUGHT, I HEARD MS.

[00:45:01]

ZEN HOUSE SUGGESTED THERE ARE INSUFFICIENT.

CAUSE I MEAN, ON MY TIME'S UP, I'M A KEEP GOING.

THERE WAS CONCERN.

OH, I'M SORRY.

I HEARD A SIREN, A CHAIR THAT IS INSUFFICIENT.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THAT IS YOUR TIME YOU'RE GOING TO FINISH.

OKAY, WELL, UH, THAT THE CODE DIDN'T HAVE, UH, ENOUGH REGULATION IN IT TO ADDRESS WILD LAND FIRE.

THE AFRICAN IS OF COURSE COMMITTED TO DOING WHATEVER IT NEEDS TO DO FOR PUBLIC SAFETY.

BUT IF THE DELAY IS, IS A REQUEST TO JUST SO THE CODE CAN BE WRITTEN IN THE MEANTIME, THAT'S I WOULD SUGGEST THAT MIGHT NOT BE A PROPER BASIS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

AND OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS .

ARE YOU ON THE LINE AND I APOLOGIZE FOR SAYING YOUR NAME AND CORRECTLY.

UM, I CAN ADD THAT MR. IS THE PRINCIPLE OF EQUITY HOLDINGS.

UH, I THINK, UH, OKAY.

UH, WE HAVE HE, THE DEVELOPERS ON THIS SITE AND WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS SIDE FOUR OR SEVEN, EIGHT MONTHS NOW.

AND WE WORK WITH AUSTIN CATHOLIC DEPARTMENT AND HAVE DONE ALL THE DUE DILIGENCE, UH, REQUIRED, UH, AS PER THE REQUIREMENT, PROVIDING THEM WITH, UH, MTA, UH, TRAFFIC ANALYSTS TO DETERMINE IF, UH, WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST, UH, ZONING FOR THIS.

UH, AND, UH, THEY'VE ALREADY COME UP, COME BACK WITH A READING RECOMMENDATION FOR THE SITE, AND WE HAVE SPENT A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME ON IT.

AND WE'VE ALSO SPENT TIME.

UH, WE ALSO GIVEN TIME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOLKS SO THAT THEY HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO REVIEW THAT.

AND IT'S COSTING US QUITE A BIT OF MONEY FOR ANY SANCTIONS FROM HERE ARE ALREADY PAID QUITE A BIT OF MONEY FOR THE EXTENSIONS ALREADY.

ANY OTHER, ANY FURTHER EXTENSION IS GOING TO BE VERY EXPENSIVE FOR US TO CONTINUE WITH THE PROJECT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO NEXT IS THERE, DO I RE CLOSING THE PUBLIC HEARING OR DISCUSSION? YEAH.

THEY'RE, THEY'RE DONE THEY'RE SNOW.

UH, YEAH.

CLOSE APPEARING.

YEAH.

I SEE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

IT'S NOT A PUBLIC HEARING.

OH, IT'S NOT A PUBLIC HEARING.

OKAY.

SO, BUT WE DO NEED TO JUST KIND OF DISCUSS WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT TO CHOOSE TO POSTPONE HER AGAIN.

I BELIEVE THIS IS THE, I'M SORRY, THIS IS COMMISSIONER SMITH.

THIS IS THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS FIRST REQUEST FOR AN EXTENSION.

UM, I DON'T, I THINK THE FIRST REQUEST FOR AN EXTENSION CAME FROM THE APPLICANT, NOT THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

I BELIEVE THAT CORRECT STAFF.

HMM.

WHAT I'M SAYING IN THE BACKUP NOTES, THAT WAS JANUARY 5TH WAS A POSTPONEMENT BY THE APPLICANT AND JANUARY 19TH WAS BY THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THEN FEBRUARY 16TH WAS BECAUSE OF WEATHER.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SURE.

DIDN'T CLEAR.

UM, I DO THINK THIS NEEDS TO GET POSTPONED, UH, UNFORTUNATELY WHEN IT HITS DURING SPRING BREAK, UM, YOU'RE, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET FOLKS TO COME AND I AM INTERESTED IN UNDERSTANDING WOULD BE TRAFFIC IMPACTS BECAUSE, UM, I THINK GOING TO AN APP MIGHT CHANGE THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATIONS ON, UM, UH, YOU KNOW, RECOMMENDATIONS AS TO WHAT THEY DO.

SO I'M NOT SURE I THINK THEY SHOULD POST MAY, UH, FOURTH, I THINK.

UM, AND I THINK TWO WEEKS PROBABLY ISN'T GOING TO BE SO, UM, I THINK MAYBE THE SECOND MEETING IN APRIL, UM, WHATEVER DATE THAT IS.

OKAY.

AND, AND, UH, I'LL SECOND THAT MOTION FOR POSTPONE TO OUR SECOND MEETING IN APRIL, WHICH WOULD BE APRIL THE 20TH, 2021.

AND I, AND I CONCUR WITH COMMISSIONER DANKER'S CONCERNS THERE.

I, AND ALSO WOULD LIKE TO ADD TO THAT THERE'S STILL A LITTLE BIT OF A BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN STAFF AND THE APPLICANT ABOUT

[00:50:01]

THE LEVEL OF THE INTENSITY OF THE ZONING.

YOU KNOW, STILL, THERE'S STILL A LITTLE BIT OF UNCERTAINTY IF THE WAY I READ THE BACKUP THERE, THAT NEEDS TO BE WORKED OUT.

SO GIVING HIM MORE TIME WOULD BE GOOD FOR EVERYBODY.

UH, AND YOU KNOW, THE OTHER THING IS THESE ZONING CASES, ONCE THEY'RE DONE THAT ZONING IS ON THE GROUND AND YOU KNOW, IT, IT'S HARD TO CHANGE THAT.

SO I DO GET, THIS IS THE TIME TO DO THE DUE DILIGENCE RIGHT NOW, BEFORE WE ZONING CHANGE ON THIS SIDE.

OKAY.

UM, MR. SMITH AND THEN, UH, COMMISSIONER WOODY.

YEAH.

I WOULD TEND TO AGREE.

I WOULD ASK THAT ADT, UH, TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT COME WITH THEIR PRESENTATION AT THE NEXT MEETING SO THAT THEY CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS THAT WE MAY HAVE ABOUT THE TRANSPORTATION ISSUES.

THAT SEEMS TO BE KIND OF WHERE IT'S BOILING DOWN TO IT, THE TRANSPORTATION ISSUES AND THE COMMISSIONER BRAIN.

YES.

LIKE A MICROSERVICE TRANSPORTATION AS WELL.

AND I LIKE, UH, EX UH, OR, UH, COMMISSIONER SMITH, SORRY.

I LIKED COMMISSIONER SMITH, UH, SUGGESTION OF, UH, GETTING ADT FOR A PRESENTATION AND THEN COMMISSIONER BRAY.

UH, I WOULD ASK LIKE STAFF, DO THEY HAVE A PRESENTATION READY? CAUSE, UM, THIS IS USUALLY WHAT, YOU KNOW, WHY, WHAT WOULD LIKE, DO WE HAVE TO ASK FOR A PRESENTATION AHEAD OF TIME? I THOUGHT THEY USUALLY HAD A STAFF PRESENTATION OR HAVE THOSE RESOURCES AVAILABLE.

UM, I DIDN'T KNOW.

WE WOULD HAVE TO LIKE ASK FOR THAT AHEAD OF TIME OR REQUEST THAT THIS PHONE WENT TO GET THAT CHAIR COMMISSIONER PLAYS ON ANDROID.

WE DO HAVE ATD AVAILABLE AS EVEN AN STAFF HAS A PRESENTATION AS WELL.

YEAH.

BUT YEAH, WE'RE DISCUSSING THE POSTPONEMENT.

RIGHT.

SO IN DISCUSSING THE POSTPONEMENT, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT WE HAVE 11 SPEAKERS SIGNED UP.

SO FOR ME, THE FACT THAT SPRING BREAK IS A DETERRENT DOES NOT FEEL, I MEAN MAYBE IF IT WEREN'T SPRING BREAK, WE'D HAVE 40 PEOPLE SIGNED UP.

I'M NOT SURE, BUT I FEEL LIKE 11 PEOPLE WOULD GET THE POINT ACROSS THAT.

THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE INTERSECTION OF, OF SLAUGHTER AND BILL BROOKE.

AND IF IT'S RATED AN F THERE'S REALLY NOT MUCH THAT CAN BE DONE TO FIX IT.

THEY'RE ALREADY GONE.

THE ADJACENT DEVELOPERS ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR A LEFT TURN LANE AND A SIGNAL AND THEY'RE WIDENING IT AND THEY'RE PUTTING TRAILS BEHIND THE, THE CURB.

I FEEL LIKE THEIR ATD IS ALREADY TAKEN A GOOD LOOK AND IS PROVIDING THE BEST THEY CAN.

BUT RIGHT.

SO FOR ME, I, I WOULD NOT BE VOTING FOR A POSTPONEMENT.

GO AHEAD, COMMISSIONER BRAY.

YEAH, I WOULD AGREE.

DID YOU SAY BREYER RAY? SORRY.

RIGHT.

I DIDN'T SEE RAISE HAND.

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT BRAVE THEN I'D AGREE WITH THAT ASSESSMENT.

I DON'T, UH, SEE ANY INFORMATION THAT WOULD CHANGE.

UH, I DON'T SEE ANY HOW OR ANYTHING THAT TELLS ME THE STAFF ISN'T READY, THAT THERE WOULD BE MORE READY IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

UM, AND IT SEEMS LIKE WE'VE ALREADY HAD MULTIPLE EXTENSIONS ON ALL SIDES.

SO I DON'T SEE ANY INFORMATION OR I DON'T SEE ANYTHING OUTSTANDING THAT WOULD, I DON'T SEE ANY CHANGES BEING MADE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS.

IT WOULD REALLY CHANGE THE DISCUSSION HERE.

SO I ALSO SUPPORTING THE POSTMAN.

OKAY.

UM, THANK YOU.

AND THEN MR. RAY, DID YOU HAVE YOUR HAND UP OR, UM, BASICALLY, UM, UH, FARMING, WHAT, UM, THE TWO COMMISSIONERS WHO PREVIOUSLY SPOKE SAID, UM, I AM CONFIDENT THAT WE CAN GET INFORMATION FROM STAFF TONIGHT AND I THINK WE NEED TO RESPECT, UM, THE TIMELINES OF THE DEVELOPER.

AND GO AHEAD AND HEAR THIS ONE.

SURE.

THOMPSON, I'M SORRY.

I MAY NEED A LITTLE GUIDANCE ON PROCESS HERE, BUT, UM, I'M CURIOUS IF I CAN ASK THE APPLICANT ABOUT THE FIRST CONTACT THEY MADE WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION AND THE TIMING OF THAT.

UM, I'M SORRY, DOCTOR, I'M SORRY.

MR. MENTIONED THAT THEY'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE SITE FOR SEVEN TO EIGHT MONTHS.

I WONDER WHEN THEY FIRST MADE CONTACT WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS FOR THE PURPOSES OF UNDERSTANDING, WHY ARE WE NOT TO POSTPONE RIGHT.

FOR THE, FOR THE PURPOSES OF UNDERSTANDING THAT, UH, WAS, WAS THE NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST MADE AWARE OF WHEN IT CAME TO ZONING AND PLANNING OR WERE THEY ENGAGED PRIOR TO THAT JANUARY MEETING? BECAUSE THEY ARE, ARE YOU MR. YOUNG, MR. OR MR. YOUNG, CAN YOU RESPOND TO THAT QUESTION PLEASE? THE FIRST MEETING THAT I'M AWARE OF WAS DURING THE WEEK AFTER THE FIRST POSTPONEMENT ON JANUARY 5TH, UM, IT WAS, UH, A ZOOM MEETING WITH EACH OF THE TWO NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS

[00:55:02]

THAT INDICATED AN INTEREST.

UM, AFTER THAT, UM, AGAIN, THERE WAS A ONE MONTH EXTENSION THAT FOLLOWED THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS WANTED ADDITIONAL TIME.

I REACHED OUT A COUPLE OF TIMES TO SEE IF I COULD PROVIDE ANY MORE INFORMATION.

I DIDN'T HEAR BACK UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE THE RESCHEDULED MEETING AND FEBRUARY.

AND THAT WAS ALSO WHEN THE STORM HAD.

AND, UH, UH, SO NO, NO CONTACT WAS MADE AT THAT TIME.

SO THEY'VE HAD, THEY'VE HAD LESS THAN TWO MONTHS TO KIND OF LEARN ABOUT THE PROJECT AND, AND, AND GATHER ALL THE INFORMATION IS, UM, WELL, I, I ASSUME THEY GOT NOTICES OF THE CASE IN TERMS OF LEARNING DIRECTLY FROM THE APPLICANT.

THE FIRST CONTACT WOULD HAVE BEEN SHORTLY AFTER JANUARY FEST.

OKAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, MR. KING, DID YOU READ IT? SORRY ABOUT THAT.

UH, YES.

UH, SO WE, DO WE HAVE A MOTION YET TO POSTPONE IS WE DID.

WE DID.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WHY I CALL THE QUESTION? OKAY.

SO, UM, ALL THOSE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF POSTPONING UNTIL, UM, I BELIEVE YOU SAID APRIL 20TH AND THEN RAISE YOUR HANDS.

SO ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, AND THOSE OPPOSED TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE.

SO YOU POSE, IS IT SO IT'S NOT POSTPONED THEN THAT, OR DO WE NEED TO VOTE TO HEAR THE CASE? CHAIRMAN WILL NOW HEAR FROM STAFF FOR THE PRESENTATION.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING.

CHAIRMAN COMMISSION MEMBERS.

MY NAME IS WENDY ROSE, BUT THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT, THIS, UH, PROPERTY IS 5.2 ACRES.

IT IS LOCATED ON GENOA DRIVE.

IT'S A FOUR-LANE ROADWAY, UH, WEST OF ITS INTERSECTION WITH PHILBROOK PLACE.

AND FOR CONTEXT, BILL BROOKE IS SIGNALIZED AT WEST, BOUGHT HER LANE AND BOUGHT HER LANE ABOVE IS ABOVE GRADE THAT, UH, WHERE IT ABUTS THIS SITE AND IS ALSO A PRIMARY CONDUIT FROM VEHICLE FOR VEHICLE OR TRAFFIC FROM SEVERAL SUBDIVISIONS, INCLUDING THE HOLLOW AT SLAUGHTER CREEK, WHICH IS DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET TO THE SOUTH, THE TEXAS OAK STYLE SUBDIVISION, WHICH IS FURTHER SOUTH, THE MALONE SUBDIVISION, WHICH IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

AND ALSO THE MESSINGER TRACT.

THIS PROPERTY IS USED FOR AGRICULTURAL PURPOSES, AND IT DOES HAVE A 100 FOOT WIDE APPROXIMATE, UM, APPROXIMATE, UH, DISTANCE OF A DRAINAGE EASEMENT ALONG THE WEST SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

IT HAS BEEN THEN DR.

SINCE ABOUT 1984 AND TO THE EAST AT THE CORNER OF BILL BROOKE AND SLAUGHTER IS AN OIL AND LUBE SHOP SHOP, WHICH HAS COMMERCIAL ZONING AND TO THE SOUTH IS THE HOLLOW AT FLUTTER CREEK SUBDIVISION.

AND TO THE WEST IS MANY WAREHOUSES THAT TERMINATES, UM, BELOW THESE WATER CREEK BRIDGE STRUCTURE, THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING , WHICH IS MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENCE HIGH DENSITY.

SO THAT, SO THAT THE PROPERTY MAY BE DEVELOPED WITH UP TO 240 UNITS THAT HAS RECENTLY BEEN AMENDED BY THE APPLICANT.

AS I INDICATE IN THE ISSUES SECTION, THE STAFF HAS AN ALTERNATE RECOMMENDATION OF FOR THIS PROPERTY, GIVEN ITS ACCESS TO TWO LEVEL ONE, STREET'S ADJACENCY TO COMMERCIALLY ZONED PROPERTIES CONSTRAINTS OF, UH, THE DRAINAGE EASEMENT AND ITS BUFFER AREA, AND ALSO COMPATIBILITY WITH THE ADJACENT SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION TO THE SOUTH DIRECT ACCESS TO THE SLAUGHTER LANE IS NOT POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE BRIDGE STRUCTURE THAT PASSES OVER THE RAILROAD TRACKS.

UH, FOR CONTEXT, THE ZONING HAS A 40 FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT, WHICH CAN BE ACHIEVED ON THIS PROPERTY.

THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST FOR MFI WOULD ALLOW FOR 60 FEET THAT COULD BE ACHIEVED APPROXIMATELY 300 FEET FROM THE CLOSEST RESIDENCES AND , UH, AS INFORMATION ALL, BUT ALSO HAS A 60 FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT.

THERE WAS A NEIGHBORHOOD TRAFFIC ANALYSIS THAT WAS CONDUCTED WITH THIS,

[01:00:01]

UH, REZONING CASE.

IT DOES INCLUDE A TRANSPORTATION ASSESSMENT.

IT RECOMMENDS A FEE IN LIEU PLAINS ON BOTH SIDES OF SLAUGHTER FROM AN SHACK TO TEXAS OAKS, AS WELL AS A FEE IN LIEU PAVEMENT TOWARD RELOCATING BUS STOPS, THAT'S WATER AND BELLBROOK AND A FIVE FOOT SIDEWALK ALONG THE PROPERTY'S FRONTAGE ON GENOA AND EXTENDING TO THE ADJACENT PROPERTY TO THE EAST, UH, TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH BELLBROOK, UH, WITH THAT IN MIND, UM, JUST I, A COUPLE ISSUES TO, UM, SUMMARIZE HERE.

THE APPLICANT IS NOT AN AGREEMENT WITH THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION OF MF THREE, AND THEY WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS IT.

AND, UH, THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

THERE HAS, THERE'S A LOT OF CORRESPONDENCE THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE BACK OF THIS PACKET, UH, WHICH REPRESENTS ALL THE CORRESPONDENCE THAT HAS OCCURRED DURING THE ZONING CASE, WHICH WAS FILED IN MID NOVEMBER.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, WENDY.

AND NEXT, IS THERE AN APPLICANT PRESENTATION? THIS IS DOUG YOUNG AGAIN, I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A PRESENTATION, BUT I'M SURE SHOULD I PROCEED? OKAY.

UH, UM, AS WENDY SAID, UM, THE APPLICANT HAS PROPOSED CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS TO PROPOSAL EMMA FOR ZONING DISTRICT WHERE THE RESTRICTION TO 65% IMPERVIOUS COVER, WHICH WOULD MATCH WHAT IS ALLOWED IN MS THREE AND TO LIMIT THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF UNITS TO 240, APPROXIMATELY 280 WOULD OTHERWISE BE ALLOWED UNDER EITHER A FOUR OR FIVE.

THE, UH, THE RELEVANT DIFFERENCES ARE, UH, THE HEIGHT ALLOWANCES, AS WENDY MENTIONED, UM, UH, AS PROPOSED BY THE APPLICANT NOW WITH THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS, UH, HEIGHTS COULD GO UP TO AS HIGH AS 60 FEET, AT LEAST 300 FEET AWAY FROM THE NURSE RESIDENTS.

UM, THAT WOULD BE PUSHED BACK TOWARD THE, THE BRIDGE STRUCTURE, THE ELEVATED BRIDGE STRUCTURE AT THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY.

THE REASON FOR THE, THE PROPOSED ZONING, IT SAID, THIS IS A BIT OF A UNIQUE PROPERTY.

IT'S REMAINED UNDEVELOPED SINCE AT LEAST 1984.

AND BECAUSE IT IS SURROUNDED BY THE COMMERCIAL, UH, USES INCLUDING THE MANY, UH, WAREHOUSE, IT REALLY HAS SORT OF AN INDUSTRIAL LOOK TO IT AS WELL AS THE, UM, THERE'S NOT JUST THE A HUNDRED FOOT DRAINAGE EASEMENT, BUT THERE'S A CRITICAL WATER QUALITY SOUND.

IT TAKES UP ABOUT 1.2 ACRES ON THE WESTERN HALF.

THAT IS, UM, UH, WELL, IT'S A SOURCE OF A LOT OF LITTER, UM, DISCARDED CLOTHES, THAT SORT OF THING.

IT'S, UH, IT'S A DIFFICULT PROPERTY.

AND THEN IT'S SURROUNDED BY THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE TO THE SOUTH.

UM, I'M GONNA REFER TO A FEW PHOTOS THAT WERE INCLUDED IN THE MATERIALS THAT WERE PROVIDED TO YOU.

UM, PAGE 25 AND I'M REFERRING TO PDF PAGE 25 IS A PICTURE OF THE SLAUGHTER LANE BRIDGE THAT ABUTS THE PROPERTY.

IT RUNS FROM ABOUT 15 FEET HIGHER THAN THE PROPERTY TO AS MUCH AS 30 TO 35 FEET HIGHER ON THE OTHER END, UM, THAT MAKES THE PROPERTY AMONG, IN ADDITION TO THE SURROUNDING COMMERCIAL USES, IT REALLY ISN'T APPROPRIATE FOR THE SINGLE FAMILY USE.

UM, AND IT'S NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A RETAIL OR OTHER, UH, YOU KNOW, KIND OF HIGH TRAFFIC SERVICE BUSINESS BECAUSE IT'S NOT VISIBLE FROM SLAUGHTER LANE AND IT'S NOT ACCESSIBLE FROM SLAUGHTER LANE.

UM, UM, PDF PAGES, 26 AND 27.

THERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF THE DRAINAGE EASEMENT THAT I WANTED YOU TO SEE ONLY BECAUSE I'M AWARE THAT AMONG THE CONCERNS OF THE RESIDENTS IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS IS THE, IN THE ABANDONED THINGS THAT APPEAR TO BE COMING FROM NOT ONLY THAT, UH, THAT DRAINAGE EASEMENT, BUT ALSO A SIMILAR WOODED AREA ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PROPERTY, THAT IS PROBABLY AN EVEN WORSE CONDITION.

UM,

[01:05:01]

I WANTED TO SUGGEST THAT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROPERTY, UH, THAT KIND OF LATER IN DISCARDED GOODS AND PERSONAL ITEMS IS NOT LIKELY TO BE NEARLY AS BAD AS IT CURRENTLY IS.

UM, AS, UH, IT SET OUT IN THE COMMUNICATION SUBMITTED TO YOU BY THE SURROUNDING RESIDENTS, ESSENTIALLY ARE THE PROPERTY TO THE SOUTH IS SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL EXTENDING MORE THAN A MILE TO WHERE THE STREET'S DEAD END INTO SLAUGHTER CREEK.

THE PROPOSED USE WOULD, UH, FOR SOME, UH, SOME OPTIONS, SOME DIVERSITY IN HOUSING, UH, OPTIONS FOR PEOPLE IN THE AREA.

I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THERE IS NO OTHER PRACTICAL USE THAT CAN BE MADE AT THE PROPERTY BECAUSE OF THE SURROUNDING CONDITIONS AS NOTED IN THE STAFF REPORT.

UH, THE PROPOSED USE IS, UH, BASED ON MOBILITY STRENGTHS IN THE AREA, THE POLICIES THAT SUPPORT MULTIFAMILY WITHIN NEIGHBORHOODS CENTERS, IT'S, IT APPEARS TO SUPPORT THE POLICIES OF IMAGINED HONEST AND COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

UH, AND I WOULD SUGGEST THAT IT DOES BY OFFERING, UH, MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND DIFFERENT HOUSING OPTIONS.

UM, THE, AMONG THE PROPOSED CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS OR CONDITIONAL INS TO APPROVAL OF A SITE PLAN, UH, TO IMPROVE THE WALKABILITY AND BIKEABILITY, UH, OF THE USE THERE.

UM, AND I WON'T REVIEW THEM.

I THINK YOU'VE GOT THEM IN FRONT OF YOU THERE ON PDF PAGE 24.

AND, UM, MS. RHODES MENTIONED THEM AS WELL.

I DID WANT TO, UH, JUST QUICKLY ADDRESS DRAINAGE, WATER QUALITY.

AGAIN, THE LITTER IS PROBABLY GOING TO DIMINISH AS A PROBLEM WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROPERTY, CONDITIONAL OVERLAY TO LIMIT IMPERVIOUS COVER, UH, WOULD, UH, WOULD MAKE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT NO DIFFERENT THAN THE RECOMMENDED MS. THREE AND THE APPLICANT ISN'T PROPOSING ANY VARIANCES FROM DRAINAGE, WATER, QUALITY REGULATIONS, PARK DEDICATIONS, OR ANY OTHER APPLICABLE REGS, INCLUDING THE COMPATIBILITY REGULATIONS, UH, THAT, UH, RESTRICT HEIGHT AND THE PROXIMITY TO RESIDENTIAL AREAS, AS WELL AS NOISE AND OTHER THINGS THAT, UH, ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL USES, UM, ON PDF PAGES, 30 TO 32 ARE SOME RENDERINGS OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

UM, I WOULD SUGGEST THAT I HAVE TO, BECAUSE I HEARD THE SIREN AGAIN.

YEP.

FACETIME IT WORKED.

YES.

SO IF YOU'RE FINISHED WITH YOUR LAST POINT THERE, UM, YEAH, I'LL, I'LL, UH, COME BACK AND REBUTTAL.

THANK YOU SO, WELL NEXT WE'LL HAVE THE OPPOSITION SPEAKERS, AND I'M TOLD THAT CITY HALL IS GOING TO HELP ME, UM, CAUSE THEY HAVE THEIR OWN ORDER.

THAT'S SEPARATE FROM THE LIST I HAVE HERE.

SO ANDREW, DO YOU WANT TO CALL THE FIRST SPEAKER? YES.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS A SPEAKER LIST, SO WE'LL JUST TAKE THEM CONTINUOUSLY ALONG WITH THEIR PRESENTATION, BUT, UH, JUST WANTING TO, BEFORE WE PROCEED, WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT, UM, UH, DID MR. WISH TO SPEAK? UH, YES.

MR. YOUNG HAS ALREADY, UH, ADDRESS MOST OF OUR CONCERNS HERE.

UH, I'VE BEEN TO PASSENGERS.

YES, CHAIR.

SO THEN WE'LL BEGIN WITH THE OPPOSITION AND THEN WE HAVE A LIST.

THERE'LL BE A CONTINUOUS LIST.

UM, I DO HAVE THE SPEAKERS ON THE TELECONFERENCE.

SO WE'LL BEGIN WITH MR. MEACHAM AND THEN GO THROUGH THE LIST.

THANK YOU.

WHICH IS TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE SUBJECT TRACK.

I HOPE YOU'RE SEEING THE IMAGE THAT I INTENDED IN THIS SLIDE.

I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE GEOGRAPHICAL CONTEXT OF THIS REQUEST.

THE IMAGE COMES FROM THE CITY OF AUSTIN FIRE DEPARTMENT WILDFIRE.

THE SUBJECT TRACK IS A SMALL PORTION OF THE SIZABLE POCKETABLE AND OUTLINED IN RED.

THAT IS COMPLETELY ENCLOSED, THREE SIDES, THE SUBJECT TRACTOR SHOWING

[01:10:01]

WHITE AT THE TOP LEFT THERE SEVERAL OTHER TRACKS IN THE PARK.

SO I'M IN THE CITY.

SO I'M IN THE TJ IS POCKET COMPRISED ABOUT SIX FOOT AND 23 ACRES AND 1,655 HOUSEHOLDS FOUND ON THE WEST BY RAILROAD TRACKS ON THE SOUTH.

MY FATHER CREEK ON THE EAST BY MARY MORRISSEY, WHITE PARK, WHERE THIS MIDDLE SCHOOL AND SOME APARTMENTS WITH MY SLAUGHTER LANE.

THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THIS WHOLE AREA IS TO THE NORTH, NO WAY OFF THE MAT, JACK ON THE WEST, NO WAY OFF OF 16, 26 IN THE SOUTH, NO WAY OFF THE SOUTH.

FIRST ON THE EAST, THE ONLY ACCIDENT POINTS ARE BILL BOOK PLACE AND DAVID MOORE DRIVE TO THE FRONT.

AND 90% OF THE TRAFFIC IS ON BILL BROOK.

THAT IS EXTREMELY LIMITED ACCESS.

THERE'S 623 ACRES.

MY PRIMARY CONCERN IS IF THIS SITUATION IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, THE ONLY WAY IN AND OUT, UH, RIGHT NEXT WEEK, FEATHER AT THE NORTH END, IF THERE WERE A FIRE OR A FLOOD, SOME OTHER EMERGENCY THIS BOTTLENECK WITH BLOCK SERVICE VEHICLE COMING IN AND MAKE IT VERY HARD AND SLOW FOR RESIDENTS, WE EVACUATE BIGGEST HAZARD IS FIRE AND THE IMAGE BEFORE YOU, THE DARKER, THE BACKGROUND, THE GREATER THE FIRE HAZARD, YOU CAN SEE THAT WE ARE SURROUNDED BY FRIEND BUBBLE MATERIAL.

IMAGINE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF A FIRE WERE TO COME UP FROM THE SOUTH AT THE SAME TIME THAT BIOTRACK'S FROM AMBULANCES ARE TRYING TO GET IN, YOU WOULD HAVE A HUGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TRYING TO GET OUT ALL THROUGH THE SAME.

NO BOTTLENECK.

THE RISK IS NOT JUST BEING LATE TO WORK IT'S LOSS OF PROPERTY AND EVEN
