I DO BELIEVE WE ARE READY TO GET STARTED.

OKAY, GREAT.

OKAY.

FIRST

[Call to Order]

I'M GOING TO CALL ROLL COMMISSIONER ACOSTA.

GREAT.

UH, VICE CHAIR.

BERRERA RAMIREZ HERE.

COMMISSIONER BRAY? YES.

COMMISSIONER KING.

OH, SORRY.

COMMISSIONER DINKLER COMMISSIONER DANCLER OH, THERE YOU.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER KING HERE, KIM.

UM, I'M HERE.

COMMISSIONER KOBASA COMMISSIONER RAY.

YES.

COMMISSIONER SMITH HERE.

COMMISSIONER THOMPSON HERE AND COMMISSIONER WOODY.

YEAH.

AND WELCOME COMMISSIONER WOODY.

NICE TO SEE YOU AND FINALLY MEET YOU.

AND NEXT WE HAVE NOBODY SIGNED UP FOR CITIZENS COMMUNICATIONS OR TO SPEAK ON A CASE.

IS THAT CORRECT? CHAIR COMMISSION IS ON THE ANDREW RIVERA.

WE DO HAVE A MEMBER OF SIGN UP FOR CITIZENS COMMUNICATION.

I'M MISSING THE NOVIA JOSEPH.

OH MY GOSH.

OKAY.

AND I SHOULD HAVE, I KNEW THAT SHE HAD, SHE HAD EMAILED ME ABOUT THAT.

OKAY.

I AM SO STAR, SORRY, MS. JOSEPH.

SO, UM,

[Citizen Communication]

FIRST, WHY DON'T WE DO CITIZEN? UH, WHY DON'T WE DO THE CITIZEN COMMUNICATION AND THEN WE'LL DO THE CONSENT AGENDA.

AND HOW DOES THAT WORK? SO, MS. JOSEPH, ARE YOU, UM, ARE YOU, ARE YOU THERE? AND IF SHE ISN'T, THEN WE CAN DO THE CONSENT AGENDA AND CIRCLE BACK TO HER ON CITIZEN COMMUNICATION.

I DO YOU HAVE MS. JOSEPH PRESENT MS. JOSEPH, IF YOU WILL SELECT STAR SIX ON YOUR PHONE.

THANK YOU.

MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS.

UM, AS ENOVIA JOSEPH, I JUST WANTED TO MAKE A FEW COMMENTS.

APRIL IS NATIONAL FAIR HOUSING MONTH.

SO MADAM CHAIR, I JUST WANTED TO RECOMMEND THAT AT SOME POINT YOU GET A MAP THAT HAS AN OVERLAY OF WHERE THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS ARE, BUT I WOULD ASK YOU TO RECOGNIZE THE NEED TO GET THAT OVERLY WITH THE AREA MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME.

AND THE REASON I AM ASKING YOU TO REVIEW THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS IN THAT MANNER IS BECAUSE 80% AREA MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME IS ABOVE WITH AFRICAN-AMERICANS AND MANY HISPANICS MATE AREA, MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME.

WHEN IT'S 80% IS ABOUT $54,700, AND AFRICAN-AMERICANS MAKE ABOUT $42,422 IN HISPANICS MAKE ABOUT 50,000.

IT WAS REVERSED IN 2016, ACCORDING TO AUSTIN CHRONICLE AT ANY RATE, IT'S STILL LESS THAN WHAT WE MAKE.

I JUST WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THE AREAS THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY ON THE GOLD LINE.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE HIGHLAND AREA, IT'S 80% AREA, MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME, AND THAT'S THE ONLY AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT THAT WOULD BE THERE WITH THE MARKET RATE APARTMENTS AND THE DEVELOPER, AS WELL AS THE INDIVIDUALS IN THE AREA DID NOT WANT LORE AREA, MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME.

SO IT CREATES A DISPARATE IMPACT WHEN THE PROPERTIES ARE WEST OF LOOP ONE IT'S 80% AREA, MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO WHAT A TEACHER MAKES OR A SOCIAL WORKER.

IN OTHER WORDS, THE PROFESSIONALS LIVE WEST OF LOOT ONE, WHEREAS THE LOWER INCOME INDIVIDUALS ARE STILL CONDENSED IN THE NORTHEAST AREA.

I WOULD JUST CALL YOUR ATTENTION SPECIFICALLY TO THE DECEMBER, 1720 20 HOUSING AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN BOARD MEETING.

THAT'S WHERE THE DISCREPANCY WAS MENTIONED ABOUT THE AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE HIGHLAND AREA.

I WOULD ALSO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THE DECEMBER 10TH, 2020 BOARD PACKAGE FOR TRAVIS COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S COURT, WHERE THEY ACTUALLY APPROVED NINE UNITS OF HOUSING, AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND F Y UH, 2019 2020 TIMEFRAME.

AND THE APARTMENTS THAT ARE IN NOT FAR NORTHEAST AND NORTHWEST AUSTIN ARE NOT SOUTH EAST AUSTIN.

MY APOLOGIES, UM, THE BUS STOP IS ABOUT ONE TO FIVE MILES AWAY.

AND SO I JUST THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO RECOGNIZE THOSE TWO FACTORS.

AND THEN LASTLY, I WOULD JUST CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THE BUDGET, TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU'RE ABLE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION.

I WOULD JUST ASK YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT PROJECT CONNECT

[00:05:01]

ELIMINATED THE BUS ON PALMER.

SO PALMER, UM, METRO RAPID IS NO LONGER THERE.

IT WAS $4.7 MILLION AND THAT'S IN THE 2045 CAMPO PLAN.

AND I WOULD JUST TELL YOU THAT, UH, JUST LAST WEEK, COUNCIL APPROVED $650,000 FOR THE MAYOR'S NONPROFIT.

BASICALLY IT'S ECUADOR IS THE NAME OF IT.

AND YOU WILL SEE A PICTURE OF A CAPITAL METRO BUS, WHICH WAS DONATED FOR FOOD.

UM, AND SO I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU THOSE AS REFERENCES.

SO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE 60 MINUTE ROUTES IN BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS STILL EXISTS COMPARED TO SIX TO 15 SOUTHWESTERN CENTRAL.

SO THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL GLADLY ANSWER THEM AT THIS TIME.

AND OF COURSE IT'S IN THE CONTEXT OF TITLE SIX OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964.

AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR TAKING MY PHONE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MS. JOSEPH, AND I BELIEVE BECAUSE IT CITIZENS COMMUNICATION, WE CANNOT ASK YOU ANY QUESTIONS AND I'M REALLY SORRY ABOUT THAT, BUT CIRCLE BACK, UM, I'LL REACH OUT TO YOU AND, WELL, I SHOULDN'T SAY ANY MORE, BUT I HAVE, I HAVE, UM, I WOULD LOVE TO TALK TO YOU.

THANK YOU.

AND THANK YOU.

AND THEN NEXT ONTO

[Reading of the Agenda]

[Consent Agenda]

OUR AGENDA AND PEOPLE, FOLKS, UM, IF YOU HAVEN'T MUTED, UM, YOU MIGHT AS WELL GO AHEAD AND MUTE FOR A LITTLE BIT.

AND WHILE I READ THE, WHILE I READ THE CONSENT AGENDA AND I'M PULLING IT UP ON MY SCREEN RIGHT NOW, AND THAT IS, UM, THE FOUR ON THE CONSENT AGENDA, A ONE OR THE MINUTES FROM MARCH 16TH.

OKAY.

I NEED TO PULL THOSE FOR CORRECTIONS.

OH, OKAY.

OKAY.

THANKS.

AND DO YOU WANT TO PULL THEM FOR A DISCUSSION OR DO YOU JUST BECAUSE WE SIMPLY NEED TO CORRECT.

UH, THE MINUTES TO REFLECT THAT THERE WAS A MOTION PRIOR, UH, TO THE ONE RECORDED THAT MR. KING MOVED MF TWO ON THE, UM, MF TWO WITH THE TRANSPORTATION CONDITIONS SPELLED OUT IN THE MINUTES AND MR. WOODY SECONDED THAT, AND THE VOTE WAS FOUR TO FIVE AND THAT JUST NEEDS TO BE ADDED TO THE MINUTES.

SO YES, ANDREW.

SO, UH, PER THE COURT'S, UH, PROCEDURE, THE LAST MOTION AS TO WHAT'S REFLECTED IN THE MINUTES, UH, UM, HEY THEN LET US, LET US PULL, LET US POSTPONE THOSE MINUTES BECAUSE THAT IS NEW.

AND I, UM, I I'D LIKE TO INVESTIGATE THAT A LITTLE BIT MORE.

I MEAN, AND LET'S POST IF IT'S OKAY.

CAN, UM, WE'LL POST.

YES.

AND WE CAN, WE'LL HAVE A MOTION ON THAT LATER LET'S THEN, UM, IT'LL BE IN A DISCUSSION ITEM.

SO THEN FOR THAT IS NOT ON THE APPROVAL ON THE CONSENT AGENDA.

AND THEN THE REST OF THE CONSENT AGENDA B ONE WAS WITHDRAWN BY THE APPLICANT AND THIS AFTERNOON.

SO THERE WILL BE NO ACTION TAKEN.

ALTHOUGH PERSONALLY, I QUESTIONED WHY IT WAS ON OUR AGENDA.

LAST MEETING DISCUSSED FOR 35 MINUTES.

AND THEN, UM, THEN WE GET AN, A LETTER SAYING IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT THE CURRENT SITE PLAN IS COMPLETE AND THEREFORE NO SUB NOT SUBJECT TO EXPIRE.

SO IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE KNOWN THIS BEFORE WE ALL READ OUR BACKUP AND THEN B TO THROUGH, UM, B3, B2, B3, AND B6 ARE RECOMMENDED FOR APPROVAL BEFORE IS RECOMMENDED WITH THE CONDITIONS LISTED IN THE STAFF REPORT.

B FIVE IS CONSENT DISAPPROVAL FOR THE REASON LISTED IN EXHIBIT C OF THE STAFF REPORT.

AND THAT IS OUR CONSENT AGENDA.

DOES, UM, UNLESS ANYBODY WANTS TO PULL ANY OF THOSE ITEMS, UH, COMMISSIONER, COMMISSIONER SMITH, I BELIEVE YOU READ IN ITEMS SIX B SIX.

OH, DID I SKIP THAT? AND DID YOU KNOW BEFORE YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT IT HAS THAT RECOMMENDATIONS? YES.

AND B SIX.

OH GOSH, I SEE THAT.

AND B6 IS ALSO RECOMMENDED FOR APPROVAL.

THANK YOU FOR POINTING THAT OUT.

IT WAS IN MY NOTES, BUT I READ TOO FAST.

SO ALL THOSE CHAMBERS ON ANDREW RIVERA.

OKAY.

YES.

SO IF WE CAN HOPE FOR B6 THAT IT'S PER THE PLANT NOTE AS REFLECTED IN THE LIGHT BACKUP EXHIBIT A OH, OKAY.

THANKS PER THE PLAT NOTE.

AS IT AS, AS, AS LISTED IN LATE IN EXHIBIT A, DOES THAT WORK? I WILL MAKE THAT

SO YOU'RE GOING TO ABSTAIN ON ITEM FOUR ON BEEF BEFORE OR SO.

OKAY.

SO, BUT, UM, EMOTION TO FORGET EVERYTHING ELSE.

WELL, WE'LL DO THAT.

WELL, WHEN WE DO THE VOTE FIRST, WE NEED A MOTION OR THERE WAS A MOTION FROM COMMISSIONER SMITH, SECONDED BY VICE CHAIR, RAILROAD MERITS, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE CONSENT AGENDA.

PLEASE RAISE YOUR HANDS.
