I ACTUALLY GOT INVOLVED, UM, THROUGH THE RECENT CITY COUNCIL ELECTION AND WAS RUNNING FOR DISTRICT SIX COUNCIL SEAT, AND THEN HAD THIS OPPORTUNITY AFTERWARDS AFTER A COUPLE OF COUNCIL MEMBERS ASKED IF I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SERVING AUSTIN AND OTHER AREAS.

SO I'M VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

UM, I'M STILL IN PRACTICE.

UM, BUT I'M HONORED TO BE SERVING, UM, MY COMMUNITY AND I'M AUSTIN.

AND I GREW UP IN AUSTIN.

MY FAMILY HAS ALWAYS RENTED HERE.

UM, AND I FEEL A DEEP COMMITMENT TO, UM, FOLKS WHO ARE FEELING LIKE AUSTIN, UM, IS LESS AND LESS, UM, A PLACE FOR THEM.

A LOT OF MY FRIENDS HAVE ALREADY LEFT WHO GREW UP IN AUSTIN BECAUSE OF HOW AN AFFORDABLE THIS CITY, UM, IS ALREADY.

AND I SPEND MY DAYS WITH FOLKS WHO STRUGGLE TO PAY THEIR RENT.

UM, SO THAT IS WHAT I FEEL.

MY DEEP COMMITMENT IS ON THIS, UM, ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND I HOPE TO SERVE FOLKS AND LEARN.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UH, WE HAVE, UM, EX-OFFICIO MEMBERS AND THAT WOULD INCLUDE, UH, OUR BOARD OF, UH, ADJUSTMENTS, UH, REPRESENTATIVE DON LAYTON, BURWELL, UH, PUBLIC WORKS REPRESENTATIVE RICHARD MENDOSA.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE WE HAVE A NEW AISD EX-OFFICIO AND THAT WOULD BE RP SAYING WHO WILL BE WITH US NEXT WEEK.

UM, ONCE SHE FINISHES HER TRAINING.

SO WE, UH, WE'RE LOOKING GOOD, LOOKS LIKE WE FILLED OUT A LOT OF OUR VACANCIES, SO I'M VERY GLAD ABOUT THAT AND HAVE VERY HEALTHY DEBATE, UM, AND A QUICK,

[00:05:01]

UH, I'M GOING TO TRY TO SLOW MYSELF DOWN.

I SPEAK SOMETIMES RATHER QUICKLY, BUT I WANT TO TRY TO EXPLAIN AS WE'RE GOING THROUGH EACH STEP TONIGHT, I THINK WE HAVE A LITTLE EXTRA TIME TO KIND OF GO THROUGH WHAT WE'RE DOING WITH THE NEW COMMISSIONERS.

AND, UH, I'VE DEFINITELY ASKED FOR, UM, OTHER COMMISSIONERS, IF I'M MISSING, UH, ANYTHING THAT'S IMPORTANT.

GO AHEAD AND ADD TO IT.

UH, I'VE ASKED, UH, VICE CHAIR HEMPHILL TO FILL IN ANY GAP GAPS, AS WELL AS I'M TRYING TO EXPLAIN WHAT WE'RE DOING.

UH, SO SOME QUICK REMINDERS AND, UH, JUST BEFORE WE GET STARTED, WE USE, UH, RED, GREEN AND YELLOW ITEMS TO HELPS ME KIND OF TRACK THE VOTING.

UH, IT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO SEE ALL YOU GUYS AND COUNT, UH, ON MY END.

SO, UH, I'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER IT IS.

UH, YEAH, I'VE GOT JUST BORING, THREE PIECES OF PAPER.

SOME PEOPLE HAVE ARE A LITTLE MORE EXCITING AND, UH, SO YES, UH, LOOK AROUND THE ROOM.

UH, WE'LL GET TO THE VOTING HERE SHORTLY, BUT, UH, PICK YOURSELF SOME COLORED ITEMS TO VOTE WITH, UM, REMAIN MUTED, UH, UNTIL YOU'RE READY TO SPEAK AND, UM, RAISE YOUR HAND.

AND THEN IF I ABSOLUTELY AM MISSING YOU, BECAUSE LIKE I SAID, I'VE GOT A LOT OF HEADS HERE TO LOOK AT AND TRACK, GO AHEAD AND, UH, UNMUTE AND, AND TRY TO GET MY ATTENTION IF I'M JUST NOT SEEING YOU.

UH, IT'S NOT INTENTIONAL DELAY ME.

UH, SO FOR THE PARTICIPANTS OUT THERE, UH, YOU STAR SIX TO UNMUTE AND IF YOUR ITEM IS COLD FOR DISCUSSION, WE'VE GOT A FEED THIS EVENING.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMAIN ON THE LINE.

YOU'LL GET AN EMAIL ABOUT 15 MINUTES OUT FROM WHEN WE TAKE UP YOUR ITEM.

SO, UM, THAT'S FOR THE FOLKS OUT THERE.

[Reading of Agenda]

SO THE FIRST THING WE'RE GOING TO DO TODAY IS WE'RE GOING TO, UH, UM, TRY TO ESTABLISH THE CONSENT AGENDA SO THAT, UM, UH, IS WE'LL INCLUDE IN THAT CONSENT AGENDA.

THE MINUTES FROM THE LAST MEETING, UH, WHICH I'LL TALK ABOUT IN A SECOND HERE, UM, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND READ THROUGH EACH OF THE ITEMS. UH, I'M JUST NOTICING MY CHEAT SHEETS ARE OUT OF ORDER.

THAT'S NOT GOOD.

UH, LET'S SEE, WE ARE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND READ THROUGH EACH ITEM AND IDENTIFY THOSE THAT ARE, UH, ON CONSENT POSTPONEMENT OR NON-DISCUSSION.

AND WE'LL READ THROUGH THOSE AND GO AHEAD AND, UM, PASS THE CONSENT AGENDA AND, UH, WHAT WE'LL ALSO RIGHT AFTER WE DO THAT, WE DO, I BELIEVE HAVE ONE ITEM THAT'S UP FOR DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT.

AND WHAT THAT MEANS IS, UH, IN THIS CASE, WE'VE HAD A NEIGHBORHOOD REQUEST TO POSTPONE AN ITEM, TO GIVE THEM MORE TIME THE APPLICANT DISAGREES.

AND SO WE WILL HAVE, UM, YOU'LL GET, WE'LL GET TO WORK THROUGH THAT PROCESS WITH THE NEW FOLKS AND WHERE WE HEAR FROM BOTH SIDES AND DECIDE WHETHER TO LEAVE IT ON OUR, UM, UH, AS A DISCUSSION ITEM ON OUR AGENDA OR TO MOVE IT TO A FUTURE AGENDA ITEM.

UM, SO WITH THAT, UM, WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD.

I'M GOING TO READ OFF THE, UM, THE ITEMS UNDER, UH, CONSIDERATION FOR TODAY UNDER, UH, UH, WE'LL START WITH THE APPROVAL OF MINUTES.

AND AGAIN, WE'RE GOING TO PULL THIS INTO CONSENT AGENDA.

UH, DO ANY COMMISSIONERS HAVE CHANGES, UH, OR TO THE MINUTES FROM OUR LAST MEETING? SO I DO HAVE ONE, UH, AND IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.

IF YOU RECALL, UNDER ITEM C1, UH, WE DISCUSSED THE ANAL SIGN REGULATION CORRECTION, AND WE RECEIVED A COMMITMENT FROM, UH, MR. RUSS.

TOVAN THE ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT, UH, TO INITIATE THE PRODUCTION, TO BE A SIGNED REGULATION, UH, THROUGH, BY FIRST MEETING WITH THE CODES AND ORDINANCES JOINT COMMITTEE.

AND SO I WOULD JUST LIKE TO HAVE THAT READ LET'S, UM, READ INTO THE MINUTES.

SO THAT'S ALL, UH, SO ANY, UH, I DON'T SEE ANY OTHER CHANGES TO THE MINUTES.

AND, UM, WITHOUT ONE ADDITION, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE ITEMS IN THE,

SO DO

[Consent Agenda]

I HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE, UM, UH, CLOSE TO PUBLIC HEARING, UH, APPROVE THE MINUTES AND APPROVE THE, UH, THE CONSENT AGENDA? I HAVE A QUESTION.

YES.

SO MY QUESTION IS ABOUT ITEM B EIGHT.

IT'S JUST, UH, IT'S.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE ALLOWED TO POSTPONE AN ITEM? HOW MANY TIMES CAN AN ITEM BE POSTPONED? SO THIS ONE IS PARTICULAR,

[00:15:01]

UH, THE LAST TIME, UM, AND I GUESS STAFF CAN HELP ME OUT ON THIS ONE, BUT I THINK THE, UH, APPLICANT REQUESTED A POSTPONEMENT TO A DATE, UM, THIS DATE AND BECAUSE THERE WAS A, UH, SOME KIND OF FAMILY EMERGENCY, BUT THEN THAT TONIGHT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE, UH, NEIGHBORHOOD.

SO IT ACTUALLY, IT ENDED UP BEING TWO POSTPONEMENTS, UH, THAT WE WOULDN'T ORDINARILY HAVE HAD.

SO, UH, FOR THOSE REASONS WE'VE, I THINK HAD TWO ADDITIONAL POSTPONEMENTS.

SO IT WAS UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES THAT KIND OF BROUGHT THIS TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY.

I'M SORRY.

UH, COMMISSIONER IS ALREADY, DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO ADD TRAVIS? JUST GOING TO CLARIFY.

UM, I ALSO, WE ALSO POST IT ONCE BEFORE WITH THE NEIGHBORHOODS, UM, RECOMMENDATION.

I HAD MADE A MOTION PEOPLE RESPONDED.

YEAH.

SO THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN, I I'M GUESSING THEIR FIRST NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST REQUEST, AND THEY WERE GIVEN THIS SECOND, UM, REQUEST JUST BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT ACCOMMODATE THIS EVENING.

UH, THEY, THEY HAD ISSUES WITH SCHEDULING, SO THAT'S WHY OTHERWISE WE WOULD HAVE HEARD IT.

UM, LAST, I THINK IN OUR LAST MEETING THAT THE APPLICANT HAD AN ISSUE.

UNDERSTOOD.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT.

SO, UH, LET'S SEE.

I THINK WE WERE MOVING.

DID I HAVE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND, UH, APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA? COMMISSIONERS ARE THE SECOND BY COMMISSIONER SNYDER.

UH, GO AHEAD.

AND, UH, THOSE THAT APPROVED, UH, SHOW ME YOUR GREEN CARD, UH, AND I'M GOING TO COUNT NOW.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THAT'S AN EASY ONE.

IT'S UNANIMOUS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ALL RIGHT.

SO THAT

[Additional Item]

BRINGS US TO OUR DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT ITEM.

AND, UH, TONIGHT WE DON'T HAVE THE, UM, THE REQUEST TO POSTPONE, UH, THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, THEY REQUESTED IT OR THE NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENTATIVE IS NOT HERE.

SO THE STAFF WILL GET US A LITTLE BACKGROUND, UH, ON THIS, UH, TO KIND OF SET IT UP BEFORE WE HEAR FROM THE APPLICANT.

GOOD EVENING.

THIS IS HEATHER CHAFIN FROM THE HOUSING PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

I RECEIVED A REQUEST FROM MELINDA OR SOLID, WHO DOES THAT FOR ONE, ONE, FOUR EAST 12TH STREET AND HER HUSBAND, STEPHAN WIX.

AND THIS IS THE REQUEST I GOT FROM THEM.

UM, THEY BOTH HAVE, WELL, SHE HAS A MEETING TONIGHT AND HE WAS NOT ABLE TO TURN IN BECAUSE OF OUR DEADLINES.

HER MESSAGE IS MY MAIN IS MELINDA OR SALICE.

I LIVE AT FOUR ONE ONE FOUR EAST 12TH STREET IN A HOME BUILT IN 1964, ORIGINAL TO THIS AREA OF EAST BOSTON.

I'M WRITING TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION TODAY TO EXPRESS MY CONCERNS REGARDING ANY CASE.

SEE 14 2020 ZERO ZERO EIGHT, NINE 12, AND SPRINGDALE RESIDENCES ITEM SIX ON TODAY'S AGENDA.

NOT ONLY DO I BELIEVE THAT ZONING CHANGE FROM GR AND UNP TGR AND U V N P IS UNNECESSARY, BUT DUE TO THIS TRACK'S PROXIMITY TO THE HISTORIC AFRICAN-AMERICAN BURIAL GROUNDS AT BETHANY CEMETERY.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT IT'S DOWNTOWN IN A DISTRACT SHOULD BE PROPOSED.

THE MLK NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IS CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF COLLECTING SIGNATURES FOR A VALID PETITION.

FOR THIS CASE I'VE BEEN AT MAY.

I HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE THAT THE SIGNATURE AS THE REPRESENTATIVE FOR BETHANY CEMETERY, MS. SUE SPEARS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED VALID UNTIL WE CAN FURNISH WRITTEN PROOF THAT SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN AUTHORITY ON SUCH MATTERS FROM THE PROPERTY OWNERS.

IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT HER NAME APPEARS ON THE P HAD RECORDS FOR CEMETERY.

THE NOTICE OF THE PROPOSED RESENTING WAS SENT TO MS. SPEARS AND CITY CONTRACTORS.

DAVEY RESOURCE GROUP SOUGHT OUT HER CONSENT FOR A VEGETATION WORK PLAN ON THE CEMETERY GROUNDS AND OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY AT 1308 SPRINGDALE ROAD WAS TRANSFERRED TO BETHANY CEMETERY ASSOCIATION IN 1976.

THE MEMBERS ARE NOW ALL DECEASED, AND THIS ASSOCIATION IS DEFUNCT MS. SPEARS, WHO GREW UP IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND ATTENDED SIMS ELEMENTARY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE CEMETERY HAS BEEN THE STEWARD FOR THIS NEGLECTED BURIAL GROUND AND WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN SECURING HISTORIC STATUS FOR THE SITE THROUGH HER DEDICATION, TO THE CEMETERY.

SHE FACILITATED A PROGRAM FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE GROUND THROUGH TRAVIS COUNTY SHERIFFS WAP

[00:20:01]

PRESENTS DUE TO THE END DETERMINED STATUS OF OWNERSHIP FOR THE CEMETERY.

I STRONGLY ENCOURAGED THE PLANNING COMMISSION TO POST MAKING ANY RECOMMENDATION IN THIS CASE, UNTIL IT IS DETERMINED WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK FOR THE CEASED OWNERS AND THOSE INTERVALS ON ITS GRANTS AND I'M AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

SO, UM, JUST REAL QUICK FOLKS, UH, UM, BEFORE WE MOVE INTO THE APPLICANT, I JUST WANNA MAKE SURE BECAUSE THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE DURING, UH, THE, WHEN WE, UH, KICKED OFF OUR, UH, DISCUSSION OF EACH ITEM.

ARE THERE ANY RECUSALS, UH, THAT WE HAVE FROM ANY STUDY HERE TONIGHT ON ANY OF THE CASE ITEMS? OKAY.

THAT'S GOOD.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UH, WITH THAT, UH, WE WILL, WE HAVE SPOTS FOR TWO, UM, UH, THE TWO SUBS OPPOSE TO THE, GO AHEAD, COMMISSIONER COX.

I JUST HAD A QUESTION OR IS THIS LIMITED TO DISCUSSION ABOUT SPELLMAN OR ARE WE GOING TO COVER THE ZONING CASE? YEAH.

SO I'M ASKING YOU FOR RECUSALS FOR ALL OF THE ITEMS THIS EVENING IS, OH, SORRY.

PRETTY MUCH THIS CASE AND ALL OF THE ITEMS THAT, UM, WE HAVE FOR DISCUSSION, UH, JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE'S ANYWAY, LOOKS LIKE WE'RE GOOD.

OKAY.

SO WE HAVE, UH, FOR THE DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT, WE HAVE, UH, ALLOWED TWO SPOTS, TWO MINUTES EACH, UH, FOR THOSE THAT ARE OPPOSED TO THE POSTPONEMENT.

UH, SO WHO DO WE HAVE TO SPEAK FIRST? I'M SORRY.

COMMISSIONER SHAW HAD THEIR CHAFFIN AGAIN.

I'M SORRY.

I MEANT TO SAY THAT THEIR REQUEST FROM, UH, MS. BARCELO IS A PEST PAYMENT TO JUNE 8TH.

OKAY.

YES.

OKAY.

SO JUST TO BE CLEAR WITH THE COMMISSION, THE DATE THAT WE'RE DISCUSSING IS A POSTPONEMENT TO JUNE EIGHT.

DO WE HAVE SPEAKERS, UH, IN OPPOSITION TO THE GOVERNMENT STAR SIX TO UNMUTE AND MEMBERS? HELLO, DAVE, THEN COMMISSION MEMBERS.

OKAY.

OH, YES.

UH, WHO WHO'S SPEAKING, THIS IS HOW IT'S GLASGOW REPRESENTING THE APPLICANT COULD EVENING.

OKAY, CUTE.

ALRIGHT.

TWO MINUTES.

OKAY.

SO THE, UH, THIS CASE THAT IS BEFORE YOU WAS PREVIOUSLY ON YOUR MARCH 9TH AGENDA, THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION REQUESTED A POSTPONEMENT TO TODAY TO APRIL 13TH.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT REACHED OUT TO ME, THE ONE THAT I LOVE THE TIMEFRAME AND WE COMPROMISED ON TODAY FOR THE HEARING.

SO I, I UNDERSTAND, UH, ABOUT THE, UH, THE CONCERNS ABOUT THE CEMETERY AND, UH, OBVIOUSLY THE NEED TO GET A PETITION OR TO HAVE THE LAW DEPARTMENT DETERMINE THE, UM, WHETHER MS. PEREZ HAS THE RIGHT TO, UM, TO PETITION THE PROPERTY IS, UM, UM, CERTAINLY, UM, UNDERSTANDABLE.

HOWEVER, THE PETITION, UH, ASPECTS DOES NOT AFFECT THE PLANNING.

IT APPLIES TO THE CITY COUNCIL.

SO, AND THE DETERMINATION TO EFFECTUATE A PETITION CAN STILL, UH, BE DETERMINED ALL THE WAY BEFORE THE CASE GETS TO THE CIVIC COUNCIL, OR EVEN AT THE TIME ALL SIX CITY COUNCIL HEARING, WHICH IS SCHEDULED, WHICH I GUESS THE CASE WAS POSTPONED BECAUSE OF YOUR PRIOR CORRESPONDENCE THAT CITY COUNCIL HEARING IS OUT MAY 6TH.

SO GIVEN THAT THE REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT HAS TO DO WITH THE CITY LAW DEPARTMENT, DETERMINING WHO THE APPROPRIATE ENTITY IS A PERSON THAT CAN FIND A PETITION.

I ASKED THE PLANNING COMMISSION TO HOLD A HEARING ON THIS CASE BECAUSE WE'VE ALREADY AGREED TO ONE POSTPONEMENT.

AND, UM, THE PETITION ASKED THAT PERTAINS ONLY TO THE CITY COUNCIL AND NOT THE COMMISSION.

UH, SO JUST HEARING THE ARGUMENTS ABOUT THE, UH, THE CHANGE TO THE WOULD BE APPROPRIATE IF HE CAN ACCOMMODATE US.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND, UH, SPEAKER OPPOSING THE POSTPONEMENT,

[00:25:06]

I GUESS, UH, I HAVE TWO OTHER FOLKS HERE LIVE MR. DAINTY, MICK, UH, ETHAN AND CHRISTOPHER F NEATO, EITHER OF YOU ON TO TAKE TWO MINUTES.

OKAY.

I, UH, I THINK I'VE GOT IT.

SO THIS IS KRISTA ANTHONY, THOUGH.

I'M JUST CALLING IN SUPPORT OF ALICE GLASGOW, JUST SHOWING UP TO SARAH MONITOR.

YEAH.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UM, COMMISSIONERS, UH, SO THOSE ARE ALL OUR SPEAKERS.

UM, WHAT I WANT TO REMIND YOU, WE'RE GONNA OPEN IT UP TO, UH, UM, TWO AND A, UH, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS OF THE APPLICANT AND, UM, UH, STAFF, IF YOU HAVE THEM.

AND THEN WE WILL, UM, AND I WANT TO REMIND YOU WHEN WE S UH, MOVE INTO OUR, UH, DISCUSSION ROUND ROBIN, UM, WHEN THERE'S A MOTION, UH, THAT WE'RE NOT DELVING INTO THE MERITS OF THE CASE, IT'S ONLY ABOUT THE POSTPONEMENT.

UH, SO YEAH, DON'T, WE'RE NOT REALLY GETTING INTO WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS A GOOD ZONING DECISION OR A GOOD, UH, CHANGE IN ZONING OR NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN JUST ABOUT THE MERITS OF THE, UH, POSTPONEMENT ITSELF.

UM, SO WITH THAT, UH, WE, NOW WE MOVE IN, I HAVE EIGHT SPOTS, FIVE MINUTES EACH FOR COMMISSIONERS.

UH, YOU RAISE YOUR HAND AND I'LL CALL ON YOU, AND YOU CAN ASK A QUESTION OF STAFF OR THE APPLICANT.

UM, SO WOULD ANY, DOES ANYONE HAVE QUESTIONS, UH, MR. YANEZ PALITO? THANK YOU.

MY QUESTION IS FOR MS. GLASGOW, I APPRECIATE THE DETAIL, UM, ABOUT, UH, AND, AND THE REMINDER THAT THE VALID PETITION APPLIES TO THE COUNCIL AND NOT THIS COMMISSION.

I WAS WONDERING IF THERE WERE ANY COMMENTS RELATED TO THE CONCERN ABOUT, UM, A LACK OF CLARITY OF THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY, UM, THAT THE APPLICANT IS REPRESENTING.

I'M SORRY, I'M COMMISSIONED, I DID NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR QUESTION.

YES.

THE, UH, MS. CHAFFIN HAD READ A STATEMENT FROM, UH, THE SPEAKER OPPOSED AT THAT COULDN'T BE HERE, WHO IS, UH, I'M SORRY, ASKING FOR THE POSTPONEMENT.

ANY OTHER REASON, GIVEN WAS A COMMITTEE, THE COMMUNITY'S LACK OF CLARITY ON WHO THE OFFICIAL OWNER OF THE PROPERTY THAT THE APPLICANT IS REPRESENTING, UM, IS WHO THAT PERSON IS.

AND IF THAT IS UNDERSTOOD, AND I JUST WONDERED IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS ABOUT THAT.

WELL, NO, I WAS SURE.

I BELIEVE THE ADMITS THIS IS HEATHER CHAPMAN AGAIN IN MISUNDERSTANDING IS ABOUT THE OWNERSHIP OF BETHANY'S CEMETERY, NOT QUESTIONS ABOUT THE OWNERSHIP OF THE REZONING TRACK FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU.

I'LL RESCIND MY QUESTION.

THANK YOU, MS. GLASGOW.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER CUPS.

I HAD A QUESTION FOR STAFF.

UM, I DON'T KNOW IF STAFF HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THE LETTER THAT WE GOT FROM, UH, MR. WARD WITH THE TRAVIS COUNTY HISTORICAL COMMISSION.

UM, AND I, I DIDN'T, I DON'T WANT TO GET INTO THE MERITS OF THE LETTER OR ANYTHING, BUT I WAS JUST CURIOUS IF STAFF HAD READ THE LETTER AND IT FELT LIKE ANY SORT OF POSTPONEMENT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO ADDRESS THE CONTENTS OF THAT LETTER FROM THE TRAVIS COUNTY HISTORICAL COMMISSION, HEATHER CHAPMAN PLANNING OR HOUSING PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

I HAVE SEEN THE LETTER.

UM, THESE ISSUES ARE ISSUES THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ADDRESSED AT TIME OF SITE PLAN, UH, SITE I PROPERTY OWNER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ADDRESSING ISSUES OF UNMARKED GRAVES.

IF THEY ARE OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARIES OF AN ADJACENT CEMETERY, THESE ARE NOT USUALLY ZONING ISSUES THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE DEALT WITH AT THE PHASE OF WHEN THERE IS ACTUAL ENGINEERING AND GREETING AND SITE WORK GOING ON.

UM, BUT YOU KNOW, IF COMMISSION WANTS TO TAKE THOSE INTO REGARD NOW THAT IS Y'ALL'S DISCRETION.

UH, UH, THIS IS FOR, UH, FOR MS. JASON, UM,

[00:30:01]

JUST TO CONTINUE, UH, ALONG THOSE LINES.

UM, SO THERE'VE BEEN SOME CONCERNS RAISED ABOUT, UH, MAYBE ILL DEFINED BOUNDARIES OF THE CEMETERY HISTORICALLY, AND NOT TO GET INTO THE MERITS, BUT I WONDERED IF THE LANDMARK COMMISSION HAD, OR, OR ANY STAFF ASSOCIATED WITH THE L'AMOUR COMMISSION HAD LOOKED AT THIS SITE.

AND BECAUSE I DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING IN THE BACKUP MATERIAL.

SURE.

UM, HISTORIC LANDMARK CONDITION, HASN'T BEEN INVOLVED WITH THIS YET, BUT I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON IT AND ALSO TO CITY STAFF FROM OUR HISTORIC PRESERVATION PROGRAM HAS BEEN WORKING ON THIS CASE FOR SEVERAL MONTHS.

I BELIEVE, UH, REPRESENTATIVE FROM HISTORIC PRESERVATION MAY BE AVAILABLE ON THE LINE.

AND WE'VE HAD THESE DISCUSSIONS OF, UM, THAT THESE ARE THINGS THAT ARE ADDRESSED AT THE TIME OF SITE LAND OR THAT THE CITY IS AWARE OF THE CONCERN AND THE POSSIBILITY THAT THERE ARE GRAVES OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARY.

I GUESS MY QUESTION WOULD BE MORE ABOUT IF THE LANDMARK COMMISSION WERE TO REVIEW IT AND FIND THAT IN FACT, THERE WERE, UM, GRAVES ON THIS SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

WOULD THERE BE SOME ISSUE ABOUT DESIGNATION OF THIS PROPERTY OR A PORTION OF THIS PROPERTY AS A HISTORIC BEFORE WE DISCUSS RESOUNDING IT WITHOUT CONSIDERING THAT? AND IF, IF WE POSTPONE, COULD WE MAYBE GET A QUICK REFERENCE TO THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION AND HAVE THEM OPINE FOR US BEFORE WE DECIDE? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

I AM GOING TO HAVE TO ASK FOR MY COWORKER ELIZABETH, FROM HISTORIC PRESERVATION TO WEIGH IN ON THIS.

UM, AGAIN, THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT IS TYPICALLY DEALT AT TIME OF SITE PLAN.

THAT IS THE BOUNDARIES OF A HISTORIC CEMETERY ARE NOT ACCURATE.

THEY DON'T INCLUDE EVERY GRAVE THAT WAS ORIGINALLY, UH, LAID IN THE AREA.

IT'S USUALLY SOMETHING DEALT WITH AT TIME OF SITE PLAN.

BUT LET ME SEE IF ELIZABETH IS AVAILABLE ONLINE TO ANSWER, YES, I'M HERE.

THIS IS ELIZABETH BRUMMETT WITH THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE.

AND, UM, I WILL ADD THAT WE DO NOT HAVE ANY ARCHEOLOGISTS ON STAFF, UM, AS PART OF THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE.

AND THERE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ANY PROFESSIONAL ARCHEOLOGISTS SERVING ON THE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION.

SO WE WOULD RE REALLY BE LOOKING TO, TO AN OUTSIDE ARCHEOLOGICAL CONSULTANT TO ADVISE ON THIS MATTER.

I DID SEE THAT THE APPLICANT HAD AN ARCHEOLOGY REPORT THAT APPEARS TO BE PRIMARILY A DESKTOP STUDY, LOOKING AT THE HISTORIC LAND BOUNDARY THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CEMETERY AND FINDING IT TO BE CONSISTENT OVER TIME.

UH, I, I WILL SAY THAT, UM, AND MY PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE, IT IS NOT UNUSUAL TO FIND BURIALS OUTSIDE OF THE DESIGNATED BOUNDARIES OF THE CEMETERY.

AND, UH, I DO BELIEVE IT WOULD BE PRUDENT TO DO SOME, UH, ARCHEOLOGICAL WORK ONSITE RATHER THAN RELYING SOLELY ON A DESKTOP REVIEW TO DETERMINE IF THERE ARE ANY UNMARKED BURIALS OUTSIDE OF THE CEMETERY BOUNDARIES, IF THERE ARE ANY UNMARKED BURIALS, UH, THE BEST PROTECTION IS UNDER THE, UH, UNDER STATE LAW AS PART OF THE, UH, HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE, UH, WHICH WOULD REQUIRE, UH, TREATING THOSE BURIALS AS A PART OF THE CEMETERY AND, UH, PROVIDING SOME ADDITIONAL OVERSIGHT, UH, BY THE TEXAS HISTORICAL COMMISSION.

I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

UH, COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS BY FISHER, UM, ALONG THE SAME LINES AS THE QUESTION THAT WAS JUST ANSWERED.

UM, AND HE'S JUST AS CLARIFICATION FROM WHAT I THINK I HEARD IF, IF THERE ARE GRAVES FOUND ON THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION FOR TONIGHT BEFORE, UM, BEFORE IMPROVEMENTS ARE MADE, THAT PROPERTY WOULD THEN BECOME OR COME UNDER THE OWNERSHIP OF

[00:35:01]

THE, OR CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT PART AGAIN, IT WOULD NOT BE UNDER STATE OWNERSHIP, UH, BUT THERE ARE PROTECTIONS FOR CEMETERIES AND BURIALS, UH, WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE MARKED OR KNOWN, UH, THAT ARE IN STATE LAW.

SO THERE WOULD NEED TO BE, UH, FURTHER REVIEW AND OVERSIGHT, UH, BY THE TEXAS HISTORICAL COMMISSION, UH, TO ENSURE THAT THOSE GRAVES ARE TREATED PROPERLY.

AND DOES THAT MEAN THEY, THEY WOULD REMAIN IN PLACE AND THEN THERE'S, UM, A REDRAWING OF, OF SORTS.

IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT THE GRAYS WOULD REMAIN IN PLACE.

UM, IT MAY ALSO BE POSSIBLE TO DISINTER AND REENTER THE BURIALS, UH, ELSEWHERE WITHIN THE, THE, UH, MARK CEMETERY BOUNDARIES.

UH, BUT THAT'S, THAT'S A PROCESS THAT WOULD NEED TO BE WORKED OUT IF, UH, BURIALS WERE DISCOVERED.

OKAY.

THAT BRINGS US TO A FOUR, WE HAVE FOUR MORE SPOTS, ANY MORE QUESTIONS, UH, COMMISSIONER, UH, MR. TELLER, I'M GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF NEWBIE QUESTIONS, SO Y'ALL BE KIND.

UM, SO, UH, THE APPLICANT IS LOOKING FOR OUR, UH, OPINION ON THE REZONING OF A PROPERTY THAT I'M GUESSING IS WITHIN A RADIUS OF THIS PARTICULAR CEMETERY OR ADJACENT TO, OR WITHIN THE PETITION ZONE, IF I'M UNDERSTANDING CORRECTLY.

UM, SO MY QUESTION BECOMES THE, APPLICANT'S NOT LOOKING TO DO ANYTHING WITH THE CEMETERY PROPERTY.

SO I GUESS MY QUESTION IS BACK TO THE PERSON WHO WAS REQUESTING THE POSTPONEMENT, WHO UNFORTUNATELY ISN'T ABLE TO ANSWER, BUT ON WHAT BASIS ARE THEY OBJECTING TO THE REZONING? I UNDERSTAND THAT THE CEMETERY IS HISTORIC, BUT THE APPLICANT ISN'T LOOKING TO DISTURB THE CEMETERY, UNLESS I MISUNDERSTOOD SOMETHING.

SO I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED ON WHY THERE IS A REQUEST TO POSTPONE, JUST BECAUSE THERE'S A CEMETERY THERE.

I HOPE SOMEBODY ELSE SHARES THAT CONCERN BECAUSE I SEEM TO MISS THAT PART AND I WANT TO BE COURTEOUS THE HISTORY AND THE CEMETERY AND ALL OF THAT.

THANK YOU, MADELINE.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, I CAN.

UH, GO AHEAD.

I AM.

MY NAME IS MADELINE AND I LIVE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE LINDA AND HER DESIRE TO SUPPORT, LIKE, TO NOT SUPPORT THE REZONING IS BECAUSE, UM, IT WOULD BE KIND OF IN CONGRESS OR DETRIMENTAL TO BE PUTTING UP THE V ELEMENT DIRECTLY NEXT TO THIS CEMETERY.

DOES THAT MAKE MORE SENSE? YEAH.

SO IT'S ABOUT THE MERITS OF THE ZONING, I THINK REZONING.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER, UH, COPS.

UH, WELL, LET'S SEE.

LET'S WAIT.

WE HAVE ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, ANYBODY THAT HAS QUESTIONS BEFORE WE GO BACK AROUND AND GIVE US ANOTHER CHANCE ANYBODY HAVE QUESTIONS THAT HASN'T GOT ONE YET.

ALL RIGHT, I'M GONNA GO AHEAD AND LET, UH, UH, COMMISSIONER COX, GO AHEAD AND ASK A SECOND QUESTION.

UH, THIS IS THE STAFF, AND I THINK IT'S, IT'S GOING TOWARDS, UM, COMMISSIONER MICHELLE'S QUESTION A LITTLE BIT, I THINK, IS THE STAFF, IS THERE ANY, IF, IF, IF THE PLANNING COMMISSION WERE TO GRANT ANOTHER POSTPONEMENT, UH, IS THERE ANYTHING Y'ALL WOULD BE ABLE TO DO IN YOUR CAPACITY, UH, TO PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION ON THIS PARTICULAR SUBJECT, SINCE OBVIOUSLY THAT'S KIND OF THE BASIS OF, IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF THE OPPOSITION AND CONCERN AND POTENTIALLY THE BASIS OF, OF THE VALID PETITION THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S WORKING ON.

UH, IS THERE ANYTHING YOU COULD DO DURING THAT TIME DURING A POSTPONEMENT AND THEN ATTACHED TO THAT IS THE LETTER FROM THE TRAVIS COUNTY HISTORICAL COMMISSION DID, UH, SAY THAT THEY, ALONG WITH THE TRAVIS COUNTY, AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL HERITAGE COMMISSION ARE AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT ANY INITIATIVE, UH, FOR PROTECTION AND HISTORIC PRESERVATION OF THIS IMPORTANT CULTURAL SITE.

AND SO ATTACHED TO THAT IS IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE RESOURCES YOURSELF, THEY, THEY, MAYBE THEY DO.

I'M NOT SURE, BUT, UM, I'M INTERESTED TO HEAR FROM STAFF ON THAT HEATHER CHAFFIN HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT, UM, THERE'S KIND OF TWO ASPECTS TO WHAT MS. SAID IN HER REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT.

ONE WAS DETERMINING WHO IS AUTHORIZED TO SIGN ON BEHALF

[00:40:01]

OF BETHANY CEMETERY.

AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT AFFECTS VALID PETITION, WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT AT THE FINAL READING OF THE ZONING CASE.

BUT AT THIS POINT IS NOT, IS IMPORTANT.

UM, THE, AS ELIZABETH WAS SAYING, WE DON'T HAVE CITY STAFF THAT CAN GO OUT AND SURVEY FOR, UH, UNMARKED GRAVES AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

UM, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS USUALLY ADDRESSED AT TURN RECITE PLAN, IF IT'S GOOD THAT IT'S BEEN MADE AWARE AT THIS EARLY STAGE, BUT PHYSICAL ISSUES OF THE SITE, UH, WHEN WE'RE DISCUSSING WHETHER OR NOT TO ADD A, THE VERTICAL MIXED USE TO A SITE THAT HAS G R M U, UM, IT'S, IT'S KIND OF A SEPARATE ITEM AND THE PHYSICAL DESIGN OF THE SITE WITH THE GREETING AND THE LOCATION AND STRUCTURES WHEN THEY START MOVING DIRT IS TYPICALLY WHEN, UH, THOSE SORTS OF THINGS COME INTO PLAY OF IDENTIFYING ANY UNMARKED GRAVES THAT MAY BE LOCATED ON THE SITE.

UM, THIS IS ELIZABETH BRUMMETT WITH THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE AGAIN.

UM, I JUST WANT TO BE THAT, UM, AGAIN, WE DO NOT HAVE ANYONE ON STAFF NOR COULD WE LOOK TO THE EXPERTISE OF ANYONE ON THE LANDMARK COMMISSION TO DO THAT WORK.

UM, SO I, AND IF, IF THE APPLICANT WERE TO BRING IN A, A PROFESSIONAL ARCHEOLOGIST, UH, TO DO SOME SCRAPING AND, AND TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANY EVIDENCE OF BURIAL SHAFTS OUTSIDE OF THE CEMETERY BOUNDARIES, UM, THAT MIGHT BE A LONGER PROCESS THAN THE POSTPONEMENT WOULD NECESSARILY ALLOW AS WELL.

UH, I THOUGHT I SAW COMMISSIONER THOMPSON HAD HIS HAND UP EARLIER, AND THEN WE'LL CLOSE IT OUT WITH THE LISTENER IS OUR, I GUESS MY QUESTION IS JUST IF, IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S TYPICALLY ADDRESSED IT SITE PLAN, WHAT, WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR THAT HAPPENING? I MEAN, IF THERE'S NOT, I'M ASSUMING THERE'S NOT A REQUIREMENT FOR, FOR SOME SORT OF HISTORIC SURVEY OR ARCHEOLOGICAL SURVEY.

SO WHEN, WHEN WOULD THAT SURVEY TAKE PLACE AND HOW WOULD THAT BE REQUIRED OF THE, UH, OF THE DEVELOPER? THIS IS ELIZABETH BERMAN.

IT'S AGAIN, THERE IS VERY LITTLE IN THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODES THAT ADDRESSES ARCHEOLOGY.

UH, THERE IS A PROVISION WITHIN THE, UH, HISTORIC LANDMARK CRITERIA TO ALLOW A SITE TO BE DESIGNATED FOR ITS ARCHEOLOGY, BUT, UM, THERE, THERE REALLY IS NOT, UM, ANY OTHER REQUIREMENTS THAT ARCHEOLOGY BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION AS PART OF, UM, LAND PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT PRACTICES, WHERE THAT REQUIREMENT REALLY IS GOING TO COME INTO PLAY AGAIN, IS UNDER STATE LAW, WHICH WILL REQUIRE IF, IF UNMARKED GRAVES ARE DISCOVERED, UH, THAT THEY WILL RECEIVE THAT STATE LEVEL OF PROTECTION.

BUT, BUT THE REALITY IS ONCE THE BACKHOES START DIGGING, I MEAN, THEY'RE NOT, THEY'RE NOT USING TRIALS AND NO TO, TO LOOK FOR EVIDENCE OF A A HUNDRED YEAR OLD GRAVE, IS THAT CORRECT? USUALLY HOW THIS TYPE OF INVESTIGATION IS DONE IS, UH, WITH HEAVY EQUIPMENT, BUT IT'S TWO TO SCRAPE THE TOP LAYER OF DIRT OFF AND SEE IF THERE IS, UM, YOU CAN SOMETIMES SEE EVIDENCE OF BURIAL SHAFTS, UM, BY DOING THAT SCRAPING OR, UM, THERE IS, UH, GROUND PENETRATING.

RADAR IS ANOTHER TECHNOLOGY THAT'S NON-DESTRUCTIVE THAT COULD BE USED.

I JUST HAVE A FEW MINUTES HERE, BUT I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHEN THAT WOULD TAKE PLACE, IF IT'S NOT A REQUIREMENT OF THE SITE PLAN, IF THERE'S NO, IF THERE'S NO PRECEDING EVIDENCE THAT YES, THERE ARE GRAVES THERE.

WHAT IS THE REQUIREMENT OF DEVELOPER ACTUALLY DO THAT, THAT INVESTIGATION? THAT'S MY CONCERN.

CERTAINLY I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A REQUIREMENT AT THE CITY LEVEL TO DO THAT INVESTIGATION PRIOR TO WORK PROCEEDING.

UM, IT'S SIMPLY MY SUGGESTION THAT WOULD BE IN THE APPLICANT'S BEST INTEREST TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE CONSTRAINTS OF THE SITE BEFORE GETTING INTO CONSTRUCTION AND TO FOLLOW UP ON WHAT ELIZABETH SAID, HEATHER TRAFFIC HERE.

UM, WE DON'T, MY UNDERSTANDING IS WE

[00:45:01]

DON'T HAVE THIS IN CODE BECAUSE IT WOULD BE A REQUIREMENT THAT EVERY SITE DEVELOPMENT WOULD HAVE A PROPERTY OWNER IS RESPONSIBLE.

AND THE PROPERTY OWNER WHO'S DEVELOPING THE SITE IS GOING TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLYING WITH THE KIND OF HEALTH AND SAFETY ISSUES THAT ELIZABETH WERE TOO.

SO THE ONUS FALLS ON THEM.

WE DON'T HAVE AN AUTOMATIC BOX.

IF, IF, IF THE, IF IT'S KIND OF KNOWN LIKE YOU NOW KNOW, STAFF KNOWS THAT THERE'S SUSPICION OF, OF GRAVES, WOULD THAT BE PART OF THE SITE PLAN REQUIREMENTS, THEN I'M NOT, I KNOW WHAT WE CAN PUT IN A ZONING ORDINANCE.

I KNOW THAT WE CAN MAKE LIKE PLAN AWARE, POINT PLAN, REVIEW, AWARE, AND INSPECTION, AWARE OF THE ISSUES.

I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S ANY WAY TO QUANTIFY THE FACT OF A PARTICULAR PROPERTY BEING REQUIRED TO GO THROUGH EXTRA STEPS.

SORRY IF I'M TAKING TOO LONG, BUT WITHOUT GETTING INTO THE DETAILS OF THE CASE, IS IT POSSIBLE FOR US AS A PLANNING COMMISSION TO PUT A CONDITION ON A SITE PLAN OR ON THE DEVELOPS SUBMISSION OF A SITE PLAN TO SAY THAT THERE HAS TO BE SOME SORT OF SURVEY, IF WE WERE TO HEAR THIS CASE TONIGHT, WOULD THAT BE AN OPTION FOR US? RIGHT.

RIGHT.

THE ZONING IS WHAT'S UNDER DISCUSSION FOR TONIGHT.

ADD VMU TO THE EXISTING ZONING THAT'S ON THE SITE.

I DON'T, I MAY BE WRONG, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE THERE'S AN AVENUE TO, UH, REQUIRE THAT IT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT IS ADVISED, BUT I DON'T THINK IT CAN BE REQUIRED BECAUSE IF IT'S NOT A ZONING ITEM.

OKAY.

BUT WE COULD MAKE IT A CONDITIONAL USE.

NO, I'M NOT SAYING I'LL USE JUST A, JUST A, KIND OF A COMMENT OR A REQUEST.

OKAY.

OKAY.

NO MORE.

UH, SO I THINK, UH, MR. HAZARA HAD THE LAST QUESTION HERE.

MY QUESTION GOT ANSWERED.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

AND JUST, UH, IT, YEAH, SO I THINK WE, UM, ARE FINISHED WITH OUR QA, SO, UH, THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC HEARING, SO WE DON'T NEED TO CLOSE IT, BUT WHAT WE DO NEED TO DO IS, UH, OUR NEXT STEP IS TO, UH, DECIDE ON WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT TO HEAR THIS, UH, DISCUSSION TONIGHT OR POSTPONE, UH, COMMISSIONER, UH, TOPS.

DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION BEFORE WE OPEN THE DEBATE? NO, I'M GOING TO MAKE A MOTION.

OH, SHIRLEY, GO AHEAD, PLEASE.

I WAS JUST GONNA, I WAS GONNA, SO THAT WE COULD DISCUSS THIS, UH, MAKE A MOTION TO GRANT THE POSTPONEMENT AS REQUESTED WITH THE SPECIFIC REQUEST THAT THE APPLICANT, UM, COME BACK AND, AND HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF THE TRAVIS COUNTY HISTORICAL COMMISSION, THE TRAVIS COUNTY, AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL HERITAGE COMMISSION, AND THE PRESERVATION OFTEN A BOARD BASED ON THIS LETTER THAT WE RECEIVED.

DO I HAVE A SECOND ACT? I SEE A SECOND FROM COMMISSIONER CONLEY.

UH, SO, UM, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR MOTION COMMISSIONER COX? YEAH.

SO WHAT I'M HEARING FROM STAFF IS THAT THERE'S REALLY NO MECHANISM ADMINISTRATIVE MECHANISM TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNS THAT WE'VE READ ABOUT, UM, FROM, FROM VARIOUS NEIGHBORHOOD AND, AND, AND OTHER MEMBERS WHO ARE WAY MORE WELL-VERSED IN THIS THAN, THAN I PERSONALLY AM.

UM, AND THE STAFF TOLD US THAT, UM, THE APPLICANT DID INCLUDE A, WHAT THEY TERMED THE DESKTOP SURVEY, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE, UM, BECAUSE OF THE HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS PARTICULAR AREA, MAYBE MORE, UH, THAN A DESKTOP SURVEYS REQUIRED.

AND SO IF THERE'S NO ADMINISTRATIVE WAY TO, TO HAVE THE APPLICANT, UM, ADDRESS THESE ISSUES DURING SITE PLAN, THEN BASICALLY OUR VOTE IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN ON THIS DOWNING CASE.

SO THAT'S WHY I'M REQUESTING OR, OR, UH, HOPING THAT WE CAN POSTPONE IT WITH, WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT THAT THE APPLICANT RETURNED TO US WITH, UM, A RESPONSE TO, TO THESE CONCERNS.

SO, UM, I SAW COMMISSIONER CZAR'S HAND GO UP.

ARE YOU SPEAKING IN, UM, AGAINST THIS ITEM OR IN FAVOR CLARIFICATION QUESTION FOR THE MOTION?

[00:50:01]

WHAT IS THE DEET DO WISH FOR POSTPONING? UH, SOMEONE WILL HAVE TO REMIND ME, BUT, BUT, UH, IT'S POSTPONED AS REQUESTED URINATE.

SO ABOUT A MONTH, A MONTH, TWO MONTHS, I, I DON'T KNOW IF A BETTER DATE IS APPROPRIATE.

I'LL LEAVE THAT UP TO THE COMMISSIONER.

SO, SO WE'RE, UH, SO THE MOTION ON THE TABLE AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER, UH, JUST TO GET IS THE, UH, TWO POSTPONE TILL JUNE EIGHT.

AND SO, UM, WE'VE HEARD, UH, COMMISSIONER KHAN SPEAK IN FAVOR OF HIS MOTION.

NOW I'LL OPEN IT UP TO THOSE SPEAKING AGAINST THE MOTION.

UH, DO WE HAVE ANY FOLKS SPEAKING OR IF YOU NEED A CLARIFICATION FROM THE MOTION MAKER, IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SEEKING A COMMISSIONER PUSH SELLER.

OKAY.

WHAT, UH, GO AHEAD AND SEEK CLARIFICATION.

THE LETTER FROM THE, THE, UM, PERSON REQUESTING A STAY ON THE HEARING WAS BECAUSE THEY HADN'T IDENTIFIED FORMALLY THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY AND WHO HAS THE RIGHTS TO FILE THE PETITION.

AND SO IT MIGHT, I, I, IT SEEMS LIKE WE HAVE TWO ISSUES AT PLAY.

WE HAVE THEIR REQUESTS BY, FOR, FOR THE POSTPONEMENT BECAUSE THE PROPERTY OWNER HASN'T BEEN IDENTIFIED AND THAT HAS RESULTED IN THE DISCUSSION BECAUSE THIS PROPERTY MIGHT BE OF HISTORIC SIGNIFICANCE IN THAT KIND OF THING THAT THEY'RE WANTING TO IDENTIFY THAT OWNER SO THAT IT IS GIVEN DUE PROCESS THROUGH THIS, YOU KNOW, ZONING CASE.

SO I JUST WAS LOOKING TO CLARIFY, YOU KNOW, DO WE HAVE TO, UH, RESPOND BACK AS TO WHY THE POSTPONEMENT WAS EVEN REQUESTED? OKAY.

I THINK, UM, YES, YOU'RE, IT DIDN'T WANT THAT TO GET LOST THAT IF WE DO DECIDE THERE'S A POSTPONEMENT, BECAUSE WE HAVE THESE CONCERNS ABOUT THE PARTICULARS OF THIS PROPERTY, THE KEY FEATURE IS WE NEED TO KNOW WHO IS THE LEGAL OWNER AND WHO HAS THE RIGHTS TO RESPOND TO THE ZONING CHANGE THAT'S COMING THROUGH.

OKAY.

SO, UM, LET'S GO AHEAD AND GET BACK.

UH, ARE THERE ANY, UH, SO CLARIFYING, I GUESS YOU'RE JUST ADDING THAT THAT'S, UM, WAS THE OTHER PURPOSE FOR THE REQUEST? UM, SO THE LADY SPEAKING AGAINST THE MOTION, UH, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, CAN I MAKE AN AMENDMENT RATHER THAN POSTPONE FOR TWO MONTHS? UM, CAN, CAN I SUGGEST WE POSTPONE IT FOR TWO WEEKS AND, AND JUST TO BE CLEAR, I'M NOT NECESSARILY EXPECTING RESOLUTION IN TWO WEEKS.

I'M EXPECTING THE, THE APPLICANT TO COME BACK IN TWO WEEKS AND SAY, HEY, WE'RE GONNA PARTNER WITH, YOU KNOW, THE TEXAS HISTORICALS.

I MEAN, SOMEBODY AND SAY, AND THIS IS WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO, AND THAT WE CAN HEAR THE CASE AT THAT, UM, AT THAT TIME WITH THOSE COMMITMENTS AND WE CAN DECIDE WHAT WE WANT TO DO WITH THOSE COMMITMENTS.

DO WE THINK THOSE ARE ENOUGH FOR, DO WE THINK WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO POSTPONE IT? UM, BUT THIS, THIS GIVES US A CHANCE FOR THE APPLICANT TO COME BACK QUICKLY ON RESOLUTION OF THE ARCHEOLOGY.

OKAY.

SO, UH, THAT'S AN AMENDMENT.

I NEED A SECOND TO COMMISSIONER THOMPSON TO AMENDMENT, UH, COMMISSIONER.

HEMPEL YOU SECOND THAT.

OKAY.

DO, UH, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK ANY ADDITIONALLY TO YOUR AMENDMENT, MR. TUCKSON? NO, JUST THAT I DON'T NECESSARILY NEED TO HAVE IT RESOLVED.

YOU KNOW, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE THE SURVEY WITHIN TWO, TWO WEEKS, BUT JUST TELL US WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO.

OKAY.

AND HAVE THAT, YOU KNOW, AGREED AND, AND MAYBE, UH, YOU KNOW, SIGNED SOMEWHERE.

AND I, CAN I JUST ACCEPT THAT AS A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT OR, OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE VOTED ON YOU HAVEN'T BEEN SECONDED, HAVE YOU, YEAH, I THINK, UH, WE'RE GONNA GO AHEAD AND TAKE THIS UP AS A, UH, I'M JUST GONNA A SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

IT IS, IT IS QUITE A BIT DIFF IT IS A DIFFERENT, UH, SO DO YOU WANNA, IS THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON? THAT'S FINE.

NO SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

OKAY.

SO THIS IS GOING TO BE A SUBSTITUTE MOTION, UM, UH, FROM THE COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, UH, COMMISSIONER HANDFUL.

YOU DO YOU STILL SECOND THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

OKAY.

SO WE HAVE A SECOND BY COMMISSIONER HANDFUL.

UM, LET'S GO AHEAD.

AND ANY FOLKS AGAINST A FINISHER SNYDER? YES.

UH, I, UH, I, I WONDER IF IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO MAKE AN AMENDMENT TO THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION THAT WE, UH, ASK THE LANDMARK COMMISSION AT THEIR NEXT MEETING FOR US? UM, I THINK THEY MEET ON THE 26TH, WHICH WOULD BE IF, UM, IF STAFF COULD COME BACK AND DOWNLOAD JUST TO HAVE THAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, BUT THE AMENDMENT WOULD BE THAT WE REQUEST A HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION

[00:55:01]

TO REVIEW THIS CASE AND OFFER RECOMMENDATIONS.

I AM GETTING FEEDBACK FROM MY CLERK THAT WE CAN'T DO THAT COMMISSIONER SNYDER.

WE CAN'T MAKE AN AMENDMENT TO THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION, OR WE CAN'T, WE CAN'T SEND IT TO THEM OR REVIEW, OH, WE DON'T HAVE THAT AUTHORITY TO DO THAT.

UH, THAT'S WHAT I'M ASSUMING.

YES.

I'M BEING TOLD.

NO.

UM, OKAY.

SO THEY'RE OUT THERE AND LISTENING.

WELL, LET'S GO AHEAD.

AND SO HERE, WE'RE, UH, UH, SUBSTITUTE MOTION TO, UH, POST ON THIS FOR TWO WEEKS.

I HAVE, UM, I HAVEN'T ANYBODY SPEAKING AGAINST ANY COMMISSIONER SPEAKING FOR THIS SUBSTITUTE MOTION? ALL RIGHT.

ANY SPEAKERS AGAINST, OR FOR ANYBODY ELSE WANTS TO SPEAK COMMISSIONER JADA'S POLITO FOR OR AGAINST? IF I COULD JUST BRIEFLY SPEAK NEUTRALLY.

I MEAN, I JUST REALLY APPRECIATE THE THOUGHT THE COMMISSIONERS ARE PUTTING INTO PROCESS RIGHT NOW.

SO, UM, I, I JUST THANK YOU TO THE MOTION MAKERS AND MENDERS AND SUBSTITUTE MOTION OWNERS.

UM, I AM A LITTLE CONCERNED THOUGH, JUST ABOUT THE OVERALL CIRCUMSTANCE AND WHAT, UH, HAS BEEN REQUESTED, REQUESTED, AND WE WERE REQUESTED MUCH MORE TIME.

AND SO I GET THAT THIS IS NOT FOR RESOLUTION, UM, BUT I HAVE OTHER CONCERNS AROUND NOTIFICATION.

AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PARTIES ALL ACTUALLY KNOW THAT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO COME BACK IN TWO WEEKS.

UM, IF WE DO, UH, PASS THEM THE AMENDMENT THIS WAY.

SO I'M, I'M A LITTLE NEUTRAL ON THIS ONE.

I WAS ACTUALLY JUST GONNA COMMENT THAT.

I THINK I DID HEAR THAT ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO FUCK TONIGHT, BUT DIDN'T SIGN UP IN TIME OR SOMETHING AND WASN'T ABLE TO TALK.

AND SO IF, IF STAFF COULD JUST MAKE SURE THAT THEY REACH OUT TO THE PEOPLE AND, AND REALLY GET, YOU KNOW, MAKE THE PROCESS VERY CLEAR TO THEM SO THAT EVERYBODY WHO WANTS TO SPEAK NEXT TIME IS SIGNED UP AND READY TO GO.

ALL RIGHT.

SO LET'S, LET'S GO AHEAD AND, UH, TAKE A VOTE ON THIS SUBSTITUTE MOTION TO POSTPONE FOR TWO WEEKS THAT WOULD BRING THIS BACK TO US ON APRIL 27TH, 2021.

UH, IT WAS, UH, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, UH, MOTION SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER HEPPELL.

SO THOSE IN FAVOR, PLEASE SHOW ME YOUR GREEN 12.

SO IT'S UNANIMOUS.

OKAY.

I'VE GOT 12 GRADE.

THANK YOU.

THAT CLEARS OUR DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT ITEM AND MOVES US INTO THE PUBLIC HEARINGS.

AND I'M GOING TO QUICKLY REVIEW THAT PROCESS.

UM, LET'S SEE, WE HAVE THE FIRST ITEM ORGANIZED HERE.

UH, WE HAVE ITEMS B ONE AND B2, BUT REAL QUICKLY.

UM, SO THE PUBLIC THEORIES, UH, THIS IS HOW THEY HAPPENED JUST FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE NEW.

UH, WE WILL START WITH A STAFF PRESENTATION, UH, THAT'S UP TO SIX MINUTES, AND THEN WE HEAR FROM THOSE THAT ARE FOR THE, UM, THE, UH, PUBLIC HEARING ITEM.

AND WE'LL HEAR FIRST FROM THE APPLICANT, THEY HAVE SIX MINUTES TO MAKE THEIR PRESENTATION.

AND THEN, UH, WE HAVE DEAD SPOTS FOR THOSE IN FAVOR.

UM, THREE SPOTS AT ALTER, SORRY, SIX SPOTS AT THREE MINUTES EACH AND THEN AN UNLIMITED NUMBER AT ONE MINUTE EACH.

AND THEN WE GO TO THOSE, UH, HEAR FROM THOSE THAT ARE OPPOSED.

AND SIMILARLY, WE HAVE A PRIMARY OPPONENT THAT WILL BE GIVEN SIX MINUTES, AND THEN WE MOVE INTO THE OTHER SPEAKERS, UH, SIX AND THREE MINUTES AND UNLIMITED UP TO ONE MINUTE A PIECE.

AND THEN WE HAVE THE APPLICANT HAS A CHANCE FOR REBUTTAL, WHICH IS THREE MINUTES.

AND THEN WE WILL VOTE TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, AND THEN VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT YOU JUST, WE JUST DID.

WE'LL GO INTO Q AND A, AND THEN WE'LL ENTERTAIN, UH, MOTIONS, UH, FROM THE COMMISSION.

SO THAT'S THE PROCESS FOR EACH ONE OF THESE PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS, AND

[Items B1. & B2. ]

WE WILL START AND WE'LL TAKE THEM TOGETHER, UH, ITEMS P ONE AND P TWO.

AND SO WITH THAT, WE HAVE STAFF, UH, SHOULD BE READY TO GIVE US A PRESENTATION, BRING MEREDITH HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT ITEM NUMBER

AND AT THIS TIME WE'RE GOING TO HEAR, UH, FROM THE APPLICANT, UH, STAR SIX TO UNMUTE, AND, UH, YOU HAVE SIX MINUTES FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

HI, THIS IS WALTER MOREAU.

I'M THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF FOUNDATION COMMUNITIES.

WE ARE THE APPLICANT.

UH, THANK YOU FOR HEARING OUR CASE TONIGHT.

WE ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE PARKER APARTMENTS.

UH, IF YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH FOUNDATION COMMUNITIES, UH, WE HAVE A GREAT TRACK RECORD OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND SERVICES IN AUSTIN.

NOW WE'RE HOME GROWN STARTED HERE 35 YEARS AGO.

WE'RE A FOREVER OWNER.

WE'VE NEVER SOLD ONE OF OUR COMMUNITIES.

NOW WE HAVE 23 COMMUNITIES, NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, AND WEST FOR ABOUT 7,000 RESIDENTS, UM, INCLUDING, UH, ARBOR TERRACE, WHICH IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE PARKER SIDE.

I THINK WHAT WE'RE REALLY KNOWN FOR IS THAT OUR PROPERTIES ARE BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED.

THEY'RE WELL-MANAGED, UH, WE HAVE WAIT LISTS PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE.

UM, AND WE PROVIDE TREMENDOUS ONSITE SNACK SERVICES, UM, LEARNING CENTERS, UH, EDUCATION PROGRAMS, UH, HEALTH PROGRAMS, THE, THE PARKER SITE IS EIGHT ACRES.

A HUNDRED PERCENT.

HALF OF THE APARTMENTS ARE AT VERY DEEP RENTS BELOW 50% OF THE MEDIAN RENT, MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME RENT.

WE WE'VE DESIGNED THE PROPERTY REALLY FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS.

80% OF THE UNITS ARE TWO AND THREE BEDROOM UNITS, WHICH IS, UH, NOT LIKE A NORMAL CONVENTIONAL APARTMENT.

UH, AND I'M HAPPY TO SHARE MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE DEEP AFFORDABILITY AND THE UNIT MIX.

I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THAT WE'RE KEEPING THREE AND A HALF ACRES OF GREEN SPACE WHILE WE'RE INCLUDING A WILDFLOWER MEADOW OUT IN FRONT OF THE PROPERTY.

UM, WE'RE KEEPING THE DENSITY LOW, UH, TO ALLOW GREEN SPACE FOR KIDS TO ENJOY.

WE'RE SAVING ALL THE LARGE TREES ON THE SITE.

WE'LL HAVE OUR AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM THAT WORKS CLOSELY WITH LINDER ELEMENTARY.

UM, I HAVE TO BRAG.

WE HAVE 11 LEARNING CENTERS ACROSS TOWN, AND WE HAVE ABOUT A THOUSAND KIDS WITH A GPA OF 3.4, WHICH WE'RE VERY PROUD OF.

AND WE'RE TALKING WITH AVANT SAY, ANY BABY CAN AND MAMA SAUNA.

AND WE'RE PARTNERING WITH THE CHURCH AS WELL, BUT NOT A METHODIST CHURCH FOR OFFICE SPACE.

THIS IS AN APPROPRIATE ZONING SITE FOR MULTIFAMILY.

YOU'VE GOT MULTI-FAMILY ON TWO SIDES, ALREADY, A CHURCH TO THE SOUTH ACROSS PARKER.
