THANKS MAYOR.

[1. Certification of Quorum – Quorum requirement is 11 members]

[00:00:02]

OKAY.

I THINK I KNOW WE HAVE A QUORUM.

UM, I WILL TELL YOU WHO I SEE, UM, UH, JUST TO MAKE SURE, UM, AND KITCHEN CLARA, BECKET, ANDY BROWN, MARCY CANNON, TUCKER FERGUSON, NATASHA HARPER, MADISON JANE HOUSTON, REEDY MATEAH TERRY MITCHELL, CRAIG MORGAN, WHO ALSO HAS A CORBYN VAN ARSDALE HIS PROXY.

ANYBODY ELSE ON THAT? I DID NOT SEE.

COUNCIL MEMBER ELLIS WAS JUST ADMITTED TO THE MEETING TOO.

OKAY.

PAIGE ELLIS HAS JOINED US.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, WE HAVE A QUORUM AND THEN, UM, SOMEONE ON STAFF, IF YOU'LL JUST NOTE AS OTHER PEOPLE COME IN AND WHAT TIME IT WAS, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE WILL CALL THE MEETING OF THE CAMPO POLICY BOARD TO ORDER IT IS TWO OH THREE ON MAY THE 10TH, AND WE ARE STILL, UH, MEETING VIRTUALLY PURSUANT TO, UM, THE GOVERNOR'S EMERGENCY DEC DISASTER DECLARATION.

UM, AND WITH THAT,

[2. Public Comments]

WE WILL MOVE ON TO PUBLIC COMMENTS.

WE HAVE ONE, UM, AND I BELIEVE THAT IS THE NOVIA JOSEPH.

UM, IF SOMEBODY WOULD ALLOW MS. JOSEPH AND MS. JOSEPH, YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

WE GOT HER EYES, MS. JOSEPH JOINED US.

HI CAROLINE.

WE JUST ADMITTED A CALL ON YOU THERE TOO, WHICH COULD BE AS AN OBI AND SHE HAS BEEN REQUESTED TO BE ON MUTE.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT, DAN JOSEPH YOU'RE THREE MINUTES STARTS NOW.

THANK YOU.

MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS.

I'M ZENOBIA JOSEPH.

MY COMMENTS ARE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION FUNDING.

IF YOU LOOK ON PAGE 52 OF THE BOARD PACKET, YOU'LL SEE THAT APPROXIMATELY 4 MILLION, $158,388 ARE ALLOCATED FROM THE FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2022 AND FISCAL YEAR 2023.

AND SPECIFICALLY, I WANT TO MAKE MY COMMENTS IN THE CONTEXT OF TITLE SIX OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964 AS I HAVE IN THE PAST.

AND SO I WILL CALL YOUR ATTENTION ONCE AGAIN, TO PAGE 48, WHICH HAS THE LADDERS OF OPPORTUNITY ACCESS TO ESSENTIAL SERVICES.

AND I JUST WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE AN EQUITABLE BUS SYSTEM THAT STILL EXISTS IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN, SPECIFICALLY, AS IT RELATES TO CAMPO, IT SAYS STAFF WILL RESEARCH ANALYTICAL METHODS TO IDENTIFY GAPS IN THE CONNECTIVITY OF THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND IDENTIFY INFRASTRUCTURE AND OPERATIONAL SOLUTIONS THAT PROVIDE THE PUBLIC EAST, ESPECIALLY THE TRADITIONALLY UNDERSERVED POPULATIONS WITH ADEQUATE ACCESS TO ESSENTIAL SERVICES I COULD GO ON, BUT I JUST WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT IN 2014, THAT WAS A PROJECT CONNECT LOCALLY PREFERRED ALTERNATIVE NORTH CORRIDOR STUDY, WHICH SPECIFIED THAT THERE WOULD BE GROWTH IN THE NORTH CORRIDOR, MEANING WRONG ROCK PARMER LANE, FM SEVEN THREE, FOUR, AND SPECIFICALLY THERE IS NO TRANSPORTATION BECAUSE PROJECT CONNECT ACTUALLY ELIMINATED THE METRO RAPID ON PALMER BETWEEN SAMSUNG AND APPLE.

AND THERE IS NO ACCESS TO APPLY.

MATERIALS ARE THE THREE ATDS, THERE'S ALSO NO ACCESS TO THE HOSPITAL ST DAVID'S NORTH.

AND SO, WHILE I RECOGNIZE THAT THIS IS, UH, SOMETHING THAT YOU'VE HEARD ME SPEAK ON MANY TIMES BEFORE, I JUST WANT TO CALL THAT TO YOUR ATTENTION BECAUSE IT'S A DISCUSSION ITEM LATER.

UM, IT'S YOU PWP, AND I JUST WANTED TO ENSURE THAT YOU RECOGNIZE THAT THEN EQUITABLE BUS SYSTEM DOES NOT COMPLY WITH TITLE SIX OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964, SPECIFICALLY THE FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION CIRCUIT 47 OH 2.1 B CHAPTER FOUR, THAT 16, WHICH REQUIRES CAPITAL METRO TO REANALYZE AND IMPLEMENT THE LEAST DISCRIMINATORY ALTERNATIVE.

AND SO I JUST WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE PICKUP ZONE IS NOT THE LEAST DISCRIMINATORY ALTERNATIVE, AND THERE WILL STILL BE NO ACCESS TO SAMSUNG OR THE 425 ACRE DEVELOPMENT EAST VILLAGE ACROSS THE STREET.

SO INDIVIDUALS WON'T BE ABLE TO GO TO WORK THERE AND THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO DO THE CONSTRUCTION JOBS ARE LIVED THERE ONCE THE DEVELOPMENT IS COMPLETE.

UM, THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS.

I HAVE COMMENTS LEADERS SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO MR. MITCHELL, AND I WILL FOLLOW UP WITH THE FEDERAL TRANSIT

[00:05:01]

ADMINISTRATION TITLE SIX COORDINATOR, MR. KEVIN WRESTLER, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL GLADLY ANSWER THEM AT THIS TIME.

I THINK YOU MIGHT BE MUTED STILL.

UH, THANK YOU.

I WAS ENJOYING THAT CONVERSATION WITH MYSELF.

UM, WELL THAT WAS ALL FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS.

WE WILL MOVE ON TO THE REGULAR MEETING.

UM, THERE IS NOTHING UNDER ITEM, NUMBER THREE, ITEM NUMBER

[4. Report from the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) Chair]

FOUR, UH, REPORT FROM THE TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE CHAIR, CHAIR LONG.

THIS IS CHAD MCCOWEN, OUR, UM, TAC CHAIR AND VICE CHAIR ARE UNAVAILABLE, BUT I CAN, UH, GIVE THE REPORT ON TACTICS IF THAT'S OKAY WITH YOU.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

CHAD, THANK YOU.

OKAY, GREAT.

SO, UM, A TAC MEETING WAS CONDUCTED BY A WEBEX ON APRIL 19TH OF 2021.

UM, WE DID HAVE A QUORUM PRESENT, ALTHOUGH THERE WERE NO ACTION ITEMS AT THIS TAC MEETING.

UM, FOLLOWING THE APPROVAL OF THE PREVIOUS MONTH'S MINUTES, UH, DAVID COUCH FROM CAPITAL METRO PRESENTED ON THE PROJECT CONNECT LPA AND POTENTIAL AMENDMENT TO THE TIP, WHICH IS THE PRESENTATION THAT HE IS PROVIDING TO THE BOARD TODAY AS WELL.

UM, FOLLOWING THIS PRESENTATION, THERESA HERNANDEZ CAMPO PRESENTED ON AN INFORMATION ITEM ON THE 20, 20 TO 2023 UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM OR UPW PWP, UM, WHICH WILL ALSO BE PRESENTED, UH, AT THE BOARD MEETING TODAY.

UM, THE POLLING INFORMATION ITEM WAS A DISCUSSION OF AMENDMENTS TO THE TIP, UH, AND THE RTP, UM, AS WELL AS, UH, AN IN-DEPTH EXPLANATION FOR THE AMENDMENT PROCESS AND HOW THE TIP AND RTP, UH, ARE CONNECTED, UH, DUE TO HAVING SEVERAL NEW MEMBERS, UM, ON THE, UM, TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE.

AND FINALLY, WE HAD, UH, AN INFORMATION ITEM THAT HAD BEEN, UH, PREVIOUSLY REQUESTED BY TAC MEMBERS THAT WERE FOLLOWING UP ON, UH, DISREGARDS THE REVIEW OF A FEDERAL REGISTRY NOTIFICATION CONCERNING THE PROPOSED CHANGES TO CLASSIFICATION OF URBAN AREAS.

UM, AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT ASHBY WILL TOUCH ON IN HIS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S REPORT ON PLANNING ACTIVITIES, UH, DURING THIS MEETING.

AND THAT WAS, UH, THOSE ARE ALL THE ITEMS WE HAVE AT THE TECH MEETING.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, CHAD IS, UH, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OF CHAD OKAY.

HEARING NONE, WE

[5. Presentation and Public Hearing on Amendments to the 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and 2045 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)]

WILL, UM, MOVE ON TO ITEM NUMBER FIVE, WHICH IS A PUBLIC HEARING, AND WE WILL, UM, AT TWO 10, WE WILL RECESS FROM THE REGULAR MEETING AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

UH, THERE IS ONE INDIVIDUAL THAT HAS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK AND, UH, THAT IS MS. JOSEPH, MS. JOSEPH, ARE YOU STILL ON BOARD WITH US? THANK YOU.

MADAM CHAIR, BOARD MEMBERS.

UM, ZENOBIA JOSEPH.

I AM REFERRING TO PAGE 13 OF 100 IN YOUR BOARD PACKET.

THAT SPECIFICALLY SHOWS A CHART THAT HAS THE CAPITAL METRO PROJECTS.

THE EXPO CENTER BUS RAPID TRANSIT IS $2.4 MILLION.

AND IF YOU LOOK FOR THE DOWN ON THE CHART, YOU WILL SEE PLEASANT VALLEY METRO RAPID, AND IT SHOWS $2.1 MILLION.

MY OPPOSITION TO THIS ITEM IS SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO COMMENTS I'VE MADE IN THE PAST WHERE THERE WERE THREE METRO RAPIDS FOR NORTHEAST AUSTIN THAT COSTS ABOUT $22 MILLION, LESS THAN THOSE IN SOUTHWEST AUSTIN.

AND THE ONLY PLACE THAT THERE WAS EVER ANY REFERENCE TO THE PROJECTS WERE ACTUALLY IN THE CAMPO BOARD.

AND WHEN I INQUIRED PREVIOUSLY, I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS IN THE LEFT EAR IS NOT NEAR ENOUGH.

AND SO I JUST WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT WHILE THE EXPO CENTER WOULD SERVE AFRICAN-AMERICANS, THE SERVICE AREA DOES NOT END ON LOYOLA LANE.

AND THIS IS DUPLICATIVE SERVICE, ROUTE THREE, THREE, SEVEN OPERATES FIVE DAYS A WEEK FREQUENTLY, AND IT GOES TO LBJ HIGH SCHOOL, AND THEN DOWNTOWN THE EXPO CENTER BUS WOULD DO EXACTLY THE SAME IT'S TAXATION WITHOUT TRANSPORTATION, FOR THE INDIVIDUALS WHO LIVE IN HARRIS, BRANCH, PIONEER CROSSING.

AND ONCE AGAIN, FM SEVEN 34, WHICH IS PARMA LANE.

AND SO I'M ASKING THAT $4.7 MILLION BE ALLOCATED FOR THE PLUMBER METRO RAPID BUS, OR YOU HAVE ABOUT 55% MINORITIES.

[00:10:01]

IT'S ABOUT 70% ON DEATH ROADS.

AND SO WHILE I CERTAINLY RECOGNIZE THAT THIS WILL LOOK LIKE IT COMPLIES WITH TITLE SIX, BECAUSE IT WILL SERVE AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

I WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THE 2017 AND 2018 COMMENTS THAT ARE IN THE BOARD PACKAGE FOR TRAVIS COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S COURT, WHICH SPECIFIES THAT IT WOULD STILL BE A ONE MILE WALK.

SO THE TRANSIT DEPENDENT RIDERS ARE NOT GOING TO BENEFIT FROM THE METRO RAPID IF THEY LIVE IN THE FAR OUTSKIRTS OF THE CITY LIMITS.

AND SO I JUST WANT TO CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO THAT.

I ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT PLEASANT VALLEY WILL SERVE THE HISPANICS, BUT I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND $9.9 MILLION SOUTH EAST WEST CONNECTIVITY EXISTS IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN AND NORTH EAST, WEST, NORTH OF US, ONE 83, IT'S 24 TO 30 YEARS FOR THERE TO BE RAIL.

AND THERE'S NO ONE SEAT RIDES ANYMORE.

AND SO I'M JUST ASKING THAT YOU RECOGNIZE THE NEED TO MAKE THE SYSTEM EQUITABLE BECAUSE THE PROPAGANDA THAT WENT OUT FOR PROJECT CONNECT SAID THAT THIS PLAN WOULD SERVE EVERYONE AND EVERYONE'S TAXES WENT UP, NOT JUST THOSE INDIVIDUALS THAT LIVE IN THE COLONY PARK AREA TO DOWNTOWN.

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

AND THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO MAKE MY REMARKS.

THANK YOU, MS. JOSEPH, UM, JUST AS A REMINDER, THIS IS, UM, JUST THE PUBLIC HEARING.

THERE'S NOT ANY ACTION THAT WILL BE TAKEN ON THIS.

MS. JOSEPH WAS THE ONLY PERSON THAT SIGNED UP TO SPEAK AT THAT PUBLIC HEARING.

SO, UM, AT TWO 13, WE'LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND GO BACK INTO OUR REGULAR MEETING.

UM, THAT BRINGS US TO ITEM NUMBER SIX, DISCUSS, SHARE LONG.

YES.

UM, IF IT'S APPROPRIATE, I JUST HAVE A QUESTION OR TWO ABOUT WHAT'S BEING PROPOSED FOR THE TIP AMENDMENT.

UM, AND, AND I'M SORRY I WAS REMISSED.

I THINK RYAN MAY HAVE A PRESENTATION.

OKAY, GREAT.

THANK YOU.

YES MA'AM.

THANK YOU.

SORRY, I JUMPED THE GUN THERE.

NO, IT'S OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND YEAH, SO I'LL JUST BRIEFLY GO THROUGH A QUICK PRESENTATION TO TALK ABOUT THE AMENDMENTS THAT WERE SUBMITTED.

UM, JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE, I KNOW WE HAVE SOME NEW BOARD MEMBERS AS WELL, UM, AND THIS IS THE SPRING AMENDMENT CYCLE, AND THIS IS A REGULARLY SCHEDULED OPPORTUNITY THAT WE HAVE TWICE A YEAR, UM, WITH WHICH TO MAKE CHANGES TO THE REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN, AS WELL AS THE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

UM, WE'VE GOT THE AMENDMENT CYCLE SCHEDULE, UH, DOWN HERE BELOW.

AND SO THE, UM, YEAH, THE CUTOFF DATE FOR THIS SPRING OF M A CYCLE WAS ON THE 16TH OF APRIL.

AND THEN WE TOOK IT AS AN INFORMATION ITEM TO THE TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON THE 19TH, AND THEN ALL OF MAY, UH, INCLUDES OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH.

UH, IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE PUBLIC TO COMMENT ON ALL OF THE AMENDMENTS AND THE CHANGES THAT WERE SUBMITTED.

UM, AND WE'LL BE PRESENTING THAT INFORMATION TO THE POLICY BOARD NEXT MONTH.

UM, AND WE'RE ALSO GOING BACK TO THE TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE NEXT MONDAY, UM, TO ASK FOR RECOMMENDATION TO THE POLICY BOARD.

AND THEN WE'LL BE BACK IN JUNE, UH, ON THE 14TH, UH, TO REQUEST ADOPTION AND DORSAL GO THROUGH AT THE END OF THIS PRESENTATION.

AND JUST THE WAYS THAT, THAT THE PUBLIC CAN COMMENT ON THESE, UH, UH, PROPOSED AMENDMENTS.

IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, THIS IS, UH, UH, SOMETHING WE DO ON A REGULAR BASIS.

AND THE REASON WE DO THAT IS SO THAT THE MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION IS APPROVED BY THE POLICY BOARD, UH, BOTH THE RTP AND THE, THE, THE TIP OR BASICALLY LIVING DOCUMENTS, AND THEY NEED TO REFLECT THE MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION.

UM, AND SO WE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY REALLY EVERY SIX MONTHS TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT'S IN THERE.

AND IF THERE NEED TO BE ANY CHANGES, UM, SPECIFICALLY I WOULD SAY THE TIP IS PROBABLY THE MOST, UH, THE ONE THAT CHANGES THE MOST, BASICALLY, BECAUSE THESE ARE PROJECTS THAT ARE BEING IMPLEMENTED OVER THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.

UM, AND AS PROJECTS GEAR UP TO GO TO CONSTRUCTION OR TO BE IMPLEMENTED, THEY TYPICALLY, THERE'S A LOT OF CHANGES IN THE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS.

AND SO WE NEED TO REFLECT THAT, UH, SPECIFICALLY, SPECIFICALLY THOSE PRODUCTS THAT ARE FEDERALLY FUNDED, UM, ANY PRODUCTS THAT HAVE FUNDING THROUGH ANY FWA PROGRAM OR FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM HAVE TO BE LISTED IN THE TIP AND ORDER FOR THAT FEDERAL FUNDING TO BE RELEASED TO THE SPONSORS.

AND THAT'S WHY, UM, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE THESE AMENDMENT CYCLES.

UM, WE CAN ALSO PROCESS, UH, AMENDMENTS ADMINISTRATIVELY.

UH, THESE ARE, I WOULDN'T SAY INSIGNIFICANT, BUT THEY DON'T RISE TO THE LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE AS REGULAR AMENDMENTS DO.

UM, THEY'RE MORE, UH, I GUESS, ADMINISTRATIVE IN NATURE ACTUALLY.

UM, AND THEY CAN BE SIGNED OFF BY ASHBY THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND THEN JUST PRESENT IT TO THE POLICY BOARD.

UM, BUT ANYTHING THAT REQUIRES A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE THAT'S EITHER ADDING OR REMOVING A PROJECT FROM THE PLAN OR THE, OR SIGNIFICANT CHANGES, THE DESIGN, UM, IF FEDERAL FUNDING, UH, AMOUNTS CHANGE, IF THE LIMITS CHANGE OR IF THE SCHEDULE DOES, THESE ARE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE BROUGHT TO THE POLICY BOARD,

[00:15:01]

AND THAT'S EITHER THROUGH IRREGULAR AMENDMENT CYCLE, OR WE CAN DO A REGULAR AMENDMENT THROUGH AN OUT OF CYCLE, UM, PROCESS WITH WHICH WE DO EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE, WHERE WE DO THE PUBLIC HEARING AND DO A REQUESTS APPROVAL AT A SINGLE BOARD MEETING.

AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS IF THERE'S A, SOME KIND OF TIME LIMITATION ON A PARTICULAR SIGNIFICANT AMENDMENT.

SO, UM, IF YOU'LL GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

YEAH.

SO I'VE GOT, UH, I WANTED TO JUST BREAK DOWN THE ROADWAY PROJECTS THAT WERE SUBMITTED FOR THE TIP, UH, AMENDMENTS, AND THEN ALSO WE HAVE TRANSIT PROJECTS AS WELL.

UM, SO IF YOU LOOK AT THIS SLIDE, WE HAVE, UH, TWO THEY'RE ESSENTIALLY TWO PROJECTS.

WE HAVE THE FM SIX 21, WHICH IS ONE PROJECT THAT'S KIND OF SPLIT INTO FOUR CSJ JAYS.

UM, AND IT'S GOING TO BE LET IN TWO DIFFERENT SECTIONS.

AND SO THEY'RE SHIFTING SOME FUNDS FROM ONE SECTION TO THE NEXT, UM, AND MODIFYING THE LIMITS SO THAT THEY CAN LET ONE PIECE THAT'S READY TO GO TODAY.

UH, THIS YEAR THEY'LL LET IT THIS YEAR.

AND THEN THE SECOND PIECE WILL BE LET LATER, UH, ONCE THEY GET THE RIGHT AWAY, UH, TAKEN CARE OF.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE OUR ONE 50, WHICH IS CURRENTLY LISTED IN THE TIP.

UH, WE'RE GONNA, UH, REQUEST TO REMOVE THAT FROM THE INDIVIDUAL LISTINGS AND WE WILL ADD IT TO THE APPENDICES, UH, WHILE IT UNDERGOES THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESS AND THE NEPA PROCESS.

IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, ONLY FOR THE ROADWAY PROJECTS, WE ALSO HAVE THE CITY OF BOSTON'S VIOLET CROWN TRAIL THAT WAS APPROVED BACK IN 2018.

UH, THEY'RE JUST MAKING SOME MINOR MODIFICATIONS TO THE SCOPE, UH, GOING INSTEAD OF A 12 FOOT TRAIL CAN BE A 10 FOOT TRAIL.

UM, AND THEY'RE REDUCING, UH, THE, THE PROJECT COST.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE ANOTHER, UH, PROJECT THAT WAS FUNDED IN 2018, UH, ALONG FM 2001.

AND THE CITY OF BUDA THAT'S GOING TO BE LET, UH, THEY'RE REQUESTING TO CHANGE THE YEAR FROM 2021 TO 2022.

AND THEN FINALLY WE HAVE, UH, SOME AMENDMENTS FOR THE NORTH AND SOUTH PROJECTS, UH, THAT TXDOT IS LETTING, UH, LATER, UH, WELL NEXT FISCAL YEAR IN 2022.

AND ESSENTIALLY THEY'RE MOVING SOME FUNDING FROM THE NORTHERN PORTION TO THE SOUTHERN PORTION.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE AS THEY'VE REFINED, THE ESTIMATES, THE NORTHERN PORT PORTION HAS COME IN A LITTLE BIT LOWER THAN ANTICIPATED, AND THE SOUTHERN PORTION IS COMING UP A LITTLE BIT HIGHER.

UM, BUT IF YOU ALL RECALL, THE POLICY BOARD DID APPROVE THIS FUNDING KIND OF BLANKET LEAF FOR THE NORTH AND SOUTH PORTION BACK IN 2019.

AND SO IT'S JUST REALLY PUTTING THE FUNDING ON A ONE CSA VERSUS ANOTHER.

SO NONE OF THESE PRODUCTS ARE, UH, NONE OF THESE AMENDMENTS ARE NECESSARILY, UH, YOU KNOW, MAJOR, I THINK, UM, MAJOR CHANGES, BUT THEY DO NEED TO BE APPROVED BY THE POLICY BOARD.

UM, AND THERE'S ALSO ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

IF YOU HAVE THE PRESENTATION PULLED UP, YOU SEE THAT ADDITIONAL AMENDMENT INFORMATION THAT'S AVAILABLE IN THE ONLINE OPEN HOUSE THAT DORSAL TALK ABOUT, BUT THAT IS DIRECTLY LINKED AND THE PRESENTATION HERE.

UH, SO YOU CAN GO TO THAT, IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE AMENDMENTS.

AND THEN FINALLY, UH, IF YOU'LL GO TO THE NEXT LINE, EMILY, AND THEN FINALLY I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THE TRANSIT PROJECTS.

AND SO THESE ARE PROJECTS THAT ARE FUNDED OR ANTICIPATED TO BE FUNDED THROUGH THE FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION.

UH, WE HAVE EIGHT PROJECTS OR EIGHT PROJECTS FROM CAPITAL METRO.

UH, THESE ARE ALL LOCALLY FUNDED PROJECTS AT THIS POINT.

AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE PHASE, THESE ARE ALL THE EARLY PHASES OF PROJECTS THAT WERE APPROVED THROUGH PROJECT CONNECT.

UM, SO YOU'LL SEE THESE, UM, THEY'RE ANTICIPATING, UH, TO SUBMIT THESE PRODUCTS FOR FEDERAL FUNDING FROM FTA, UH, SPECIFICALLY THE BRT ROUTES.

UM, AND SO WHEN THOSE PRODUCTS DO, IF THEY DO END UP GETTING SELECTED FOR FUNDING THROUGH FDA, THEY WILL HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE POLICY BOARD FOR APPROVAL.

UM, SO THAT'S JUST AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION TO MAKE RIGHT NOW, UH, THE PROJECT COSTS YOU SEE, AND THEY WERE BEING FUNDED TOTALLY THROUGH THE, THE LOCAL, UH, TAX THAT WAS APPROVED, UH, BACK IN NOVEMBER.

UM, AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE THE CITY OF SAN MARCUS.

UH, THEY GOT A GRANT TO PURCHASE THREE TRANSIT VEHICLES, AND SO THERE'LL BE DOING THAT.

AND SO WE'LL BE ADDING ALL OF THESE INTO THE TIP.

UM, BUT, UH, I JUST DO WANT TO SAY THAT AS PROJECT CONNECT GETS GOING, I THINK WE'LL BE SEEING A LOT MORE PIECES OF TRANSIT PROJECTS.

UH, NORMALLY IN THE PAST, WE NORMALLY JUST SEE THEIR REGULAR PROGRAM FUNDING EVERY TWO YEARS WHEN WE DEVELOP A NEW TIP, WE'LL SEE A BLANKET, YOU KNOW, FUNDING FOR 53 OR SEVEN AND 53 10, THINGS LIKE THAT.

BUT AS PROJECT GETS GOING AND GETS GOES AFTER FEDERAL GRANTS, THOSE WILL HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE POLICY BOARD FOR APPROVAL.

SO, UH, JUST WANTED TO POINT THAT OUT.

AND, UM, THAT IS THE CONCLUSION OF ALL THE, UH, THE PROJECTS THAT WERE SUBMITTED FOR AMENDMENTS.

UM, AND THEN I'M GOING TO PASS IT OVER TO JOYCE AND JUST LET HER TALK ABOUT, UH, THE DIFFERENT WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN COMMENT ON THESE, UH, PROPOSED AMENDMENTS MANAGED SERVICE MASS.

RIGHT.

A QUICK QUESTION, BEFORE HE DOES BRIAN, COULD YOU ADDRESS MS. JOSEPH'S CO UM, CONCERN REAL QUICK? SHE MADE A COMMENT ABOUT, UM, THE, UM, REGARDING THE ACTUAL ROUTES PER SE.

I MEAN, I DON'T, I DON'T MEAN TO SLOW EQUATE, BUT JUST SOMETHING REAL QUICK THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, REGARDING HER COMMENTS.

UM, I THINK WE MAY HAVE SOMEBODY ON FROM, FROM CAPITAL METRO CELL SHARMILA, UM, UM, UM, WAS SHE ADMITTED TO THE, TO THE WEBEX EMILY?

[00:20:01]

OUR MILA HAS NOT CALLED INTO THE WEBEX, BUT WE DO HAVE DAVE COUCH.

OKAY.

WE'LL JUST ASK HIM IF THE CASH THEN MR. COUCH, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND TRYING TO ADDRESS COUNCIL MEMBER MATEUS QUESTION, IT'S PROBABLY MORE APPROPRIATE THAT YOU ANSWER IT THEN A TEMPO.

UM, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND.

THANK YOU, MS. MULLEN.

THANK YOU.

DID HE HEAR US? OKAY.

I SHOWED HIM LOGGED ON, IS HE ONE? I THINK HE'S JUST TRYING TO GET ON NEEDED.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? YES.

THANK YOU.

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

THE FARMER LINE, THE ONE THAT MS. JOSEPH WAS REFERRING TO, THAT IS ONE THAT IS NOT IN THE INITIAL SYSTEM SELECTION.

THE THREE THAT ARE IN THE INITIAL SELECTION ARE PLEASANT VALLEY EXPO AND THE EXTENSION OF SOUTH LAMAR, THE MAN CHECK THAT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR RYAN BEFORE HE HANDS IT OVER TO JOYCE? OKAY.

I'M HEARING THE QUESTION SURE.

LONG.

YEAH.

AND YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, OKAY.

YEAH.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE LIST.

SO I THINK THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE ASKING FOR RIGHT NOW, RIGHT? YES.

OKAY.

SO, UM, I HAVE, UH, SEVERAL QUESTIONS AND I, I THINK THAT, UM, WE, WE MAY HAVE SOMEONE, A COUPLE OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAVE QUESTIONS TOO.

SO MY FIRST QUESTION IS THIS IS SOMETHING TO NOTE, UM, AND THAT RELATES TO THE, UM, THE, THE TRANSIT PROJECTS.

THERE'S ANOTHER PROJECT THAT I THINK IS MISSING, UH, AND THAT RELATES TO THE BRT.

I THINK THEY'VE CATCHED JUST MENTIONED IT THAT'S THE BURNET HILL MACHEKA BRT.

SO I'M JUST FLAGGING THAT FOR CAMPO STAFF THAT REQUIRES SOME MORE CONVERSATION WITH, UM, CAP METRO.

BUT I THINK THAT ONE MAY NEED TO BE ADDED.

SO THIS IS SHAMILA MOCHA, ACTUALLY, THERE'S A LOT OF ECHO IN THE BACKGROUND, SO SOMEONE NEEDS TO MUTE THEIR COMPUTER PERHAPS, BUT I'LL GO AHEAD.

UM, BOARD MEMBER KITCHEN.

I WANTED TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO KIND OF GIVE YOU A QUICK UPDATE.

UH, SO SOUTH MAN, CHAKA OAK HILL EXTENSION AND GOLDLINE VRT ARE JUST THE NEXT SET OF PROJECTS THAT WE'LL BE GOING FORWARD WITH ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW, 30% DESIGN DRAWINGS, AS WELL AS WE EXPECT THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO WRAP THAT IN SUMMER.

SO THAT'S GOING TO BE IN FOR THE FALL CYCLE AMENDMENT FOR TIM.

UM, OKAY.

SO, SO MY QUESTION FOR CAMPO STAFF IS WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR THE FALL CYCLE AMENDMENT FOR TIP, WE'LL BE OPENING THAT UP AND AUGUST.

UM, BUT I DO WANT TO SAY THAT, UM, THEY CAN SUBMIT THE TIP AMENDMENTS AT ANY TIME, THE, UM, APPLICATION FOR IT'S ONLINE 24 SEVEN.

UM, BUT WE'LL BE STARTING THE PROCESS, THOSE AND AUGUST.

SO I WOULD LOOK FOR THE SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER BOARD MEETINGS IS WHEN YOU'LL SEE THE PUBLIC HEARING PROBABLY IN SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER.

OKAY.

THAT ANSWERS THAT QUESTION.

THE SECOND QUESTION I HAVE, UM, RELATES TO, WELL, ACTUALLY, UM, FROM AUSTIN, WE HAD A QUESTION TO COLONY LOOP DRIVE AND ALSO RELATED TO, UM, SOME, UH, SUBMISSION RELATED TO, UM, THREE OF OUR BRIDGE PROJECTS.

I'M GOING TO LET, UM, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER NATASHA HARPER, MADISON ASKED HER QUESTIONS FIRST, IF THAT'S ALL RIGHT, CHAIR ABOUT THE COLONY LOOP DRIVE, NATASHA, IF YOU WANT TO GO AHEAD AND ASK, I KNOW YOU HAD SOME QUESTION.

I DO.

THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

I JUST DIDN'T HEAR THE CHAIR RESPOND IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.

I WAS, I'M A RULE FOLLOWER.

SORRY.

I WAS MUTED.

THANK YOU.

YES.

SO THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN.

I DID NOTICE, UM, THAT THE COLONY LOOP IS MISSING AND YOU KNOW, THERE'S A LOT OF FOLKS ON THE LINE, UM, WHO MAY NOT KNOW THIS, BUT COLONY PARK IS A, IT'S A PART OF AUSTIN AT FAR EAST PART OF AUSTIN THAT SUFFERED FROM DECADES AND DECADES OF NEGLECT AND DISINVESTMENT.

AND YOU KNOW, NOW THAT THE CITY IS FINALLY IN THE PROCESS OF IMPLEMENTING THE COLONY PARK, SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY INITIATIVE, UM, THAT AND NEIGHBORHOODS GOING TO BE COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, IT WILL REALLY CREATE THIS REGIONAL ANCHOR FOR RESIDENTIAL COMMERCIAL, UH, RECREATIONAL HEALTHCARE TRANSIT RELATED, YOU KNOW, DESTINATION

[00:25:01]

AND THAT COLONY LOOP DRIVE IS, IS KEY TO THE PROJECT MOVING FORWARD.

UM, EVEN IN INCLUDED IN OUR IMAGINE AUSTIN GROWTH CONCEPT THAT THAT MAP IDENTIFIES COLONY PARK, UH, AS MORE OF THE TOWN CENTER, YOU KNOW, THE JOB CENTER, UH, IT'S ON THE EDGE OF THE AUSTIN CITY LIMITS.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE ARE SO, SO CLOSE TO MAINER AND ELGON, AND YOU KNOW, THOSE OUTER PARTS OF, UH, TRAVIS COUNTY THAT ARE EXPERIENCED IN TRULY EXPLOSIVE GROWTH.

I MEAN, I CAN SORT OF GO THROUGH ALL THE TRANSIT PRIDE, THE METRO RAPID EXPO LINE, UH, THE GREENLINE COMMUTER RAIL, THE, YOU KNOW, MORE SUCCESSFUL THAT GREEN LINE INITIAL INVESTMENT IS.

I HONESTLY THINK THE SOONER, YOU KNOW, WE'LL BE ABLE TO EXPAND THAT SERVICE OUT INTO MAINER AND ALLEGAN.

SO I'M JUST WONDERING HOW DID COLONY LOOP GET LEFT OUT OF CONSIDERATION HERE? SO, UM, IF I COULD, I'M GOING TO ASK ASHBY TO JUST SORT OF CLARIFY WHAT, UM, WHAT PROJECTS OR WHAT THRESHOLD PROJECTS HAVE TO HIT TO MAKE IT TO, UM, TO THESE LISTS.

SO ASHBY, IF YOU COULD ADDRESS THAT AND PROBABLY THE BRIDGES QUESTION, JUST IN TERMS OF WHAT'S LOCAL RESPONSIBILITY VERSUS REGIONAL.

THANK YOU, CHAIR LONG.

SO, UM, COUNCIL MEMBER, HARPER, MADISON, UM, WE DID WORK WITH, BUT I'M SORRY, I ACTUALLY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU.

SORRY.

I CAN, I CAN HEAR HIM.

AND IT'S JUST VERY QUIET.

YEAH.

I CAN HEAR YOU TALK LOUDER.

OKAY.

SO A COUNCIL MEMBER, OUR HOPPER MADISON, UH, WE DID WORK WITH, UM, CITY OF AUSTIN STAFF ON THE SUBMITTAL FOR, UM, UM, THE PROJECT THAT YOU'VE MENTIONED, AND IT DIDN'T MEET THE CRITERIA IN TERMS OF, UH, FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION.

THAT IS A, UH, ROADWAY CLASSIFICATION, UM, THAT WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH FOR THE FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION.

AND IF THE ROAD DOESN'T MEET THE CLASSIFICATION, IT'S NOT ELIGIBLE FOR FEDERAL FUNDS.

AND, UM, SO WE WORKED WITH, UM, I CAN'T REMEMBER HER NAME, UM, WARNER, UM, ON THAT ONE QUITE A BIT, UM, IN THE TWO WEEKS LEADING UP TO THIS ITEM, AND IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING AND RYAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG.

THE CITY WAS, UM, WAS USING LOCAL FUNDS ON THAT PROJECT.

AND, AND THE REASON I'M BRINGING THAT UP IS YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE IT IN THE TIP, UH, TO USE LOCAL FUNDS.

SO IT DIDN'T, IT ALSO DIDN'T MEET OUR TEST FOR REGIONAL SIGNIFICANCE.

AND WE WENT THROUGH THAT WITH, UM, WITH, UM, WARNER AS WELL.

AND WE CAN SEND YOU THE BACKGROUND, UM, UH, INFORMATION ON THAT, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER, IF THAT'S HELPFUL FOR YOU, I'M HAPPY TO HAVE IT, BUT I'D ALSO LIKE TO KNOW, YOU KNOW, UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES CONTRACTS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR RECONSIDERATION, I, THIS VERY MUCH IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OUT IN THIS AREA.

THERE ARE SUBSTANTIAL TRANSIT PROJECTS THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN WITHOUT THE COMPLETION OF COLONY.

UM, SO I SEE IT AS A CRITICAL COMPONENT.

SO I'D LIKE VERY MUCH TO, TO NOT CLOSE THE CONVERSATION THAT THIS IS WHY WE DID IT.

AND I'D LIKE TO KNOW, YOU KNOW, WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR HAVING IT BE A POINT OF CONSIDERATION? WELL, IF WE COULD GET MORE INFORMATION THAT SATISFIES BOTH THE, UM, UM, THE, UM, FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION ISSUE AND THE REGIONAL, UM, SIGNIFICANT ISSUE, THEN WE CAN, WE CAN ADDRESS THAT IN A FUTURE AMENDMENT CYCLE.

SO THE DOOR'S NOT CLOSED.

OKAY.

I, I, I APPRECIATE THAT.

I GUESS I JUST, I'M CONFUSED, YOU KNOW, I'M LOOKING AT HOW THERE'S, UM, THERE'S, YOU KNOW, THE TIP INCLUDES FUNDING FOR THE METRO REP AT EXPO.

UH, I JUST DON'T GIVEN THAT, YOU KNOW, WITHOUT THE METRO, WITHOUT COLONY LOOP, WE COULDN'T HAVE THE METRO RAPID EXPO.

IT IT'S SOMETHING SEEMS INCONGRUENT IS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY.

OKAY, LET ME GO BACK AND LOOK AT THAT, UM, COUNCIL MEMBER, CAUSE, UM, THOSE TWO LINK, THAT LINK WAS NOT PROVIDED TO US WHEN, WHEN, UM, THE CITY SUBMITTED, UM, THE AMENDMENT.

SO LET US GO BACK.

SOMETHING THAT I COULD DO TO HELP FACILITATE YOU GETTING THE INFORMATION YOU NEED.

GOOD.

MY OFFICE HELPED MAYBE, UH, WE'LL REACH OUT TO YOU, UM, COUNCIL MEMBER.

EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, CHAIR LONG, YOU WERE ASKING ABOUT, UM, THE OTHER PROJECTS, THE BRIDGES IN PARTICULAR.

YES.

BRIAN, CAN YOU OH, OKAY.

YOU'RE SAYING EXACTLY.

OKAY.

HEY, THEY ASKED ME.

YEAH.

SO THE, THE PROJECTS THAT WERE

[00:30:01]

BRIDGE SUBMITTALS WERE AS A GROUP PROJECT.

AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAD DEEMED WERE MORE OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE AND LESS ACTUAL ADDING CAPACITY.

AND SO THAT WAS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE DIDN'T INCLUDE IT INTO THE AMENDMENTS AND THEN COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN ON, ON THE BRIDGES AS WELL.

UM, LET ME BACK TO THE BOARD MEETING AND I WANT TO SAY IT WAS 2019, WHERE THERE WAS, UM, A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF CONVERSATION AMONG THE BOARD MEMBERS ABOUT ADDED CAPACITY VERSUS MAINTENANCE.

UM, AND, UM, WE SENT THAT OVER TO THE CITY AS WELL.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE ME.

CAN, CAN YOU SEE ME? I HAVE A FOLLOW UP QUESTION.

OH, UM, YEAH, GO AHEAD.

OKAY.

UM, SO, UM, SO ASHLEY THAT, UM, UH, THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO, TO CHANGE THE, THE VOTE THAT WAS MADE LAST MAY.

I'M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE, UH, CLASSIFICATION OF THESE BRIDGES IN THE CATEGORY.

THAT'S, THAT'S NOT READ, I MEAN, THE LANGUAGE.

UM, SO LET, LET ME JUST SAY THIS.

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT THERAPY OPEN CONVERSATION SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO, TO LOOK AT THE APPLICATION OF THE DEFINITION TO THESE PROJECTS.

THE, UM, SO FOR EXAMPLE, THE TWO OF THEM REALLY IMPACT THE, THE RAILROAD.

THE UPR ARE A RAILROAD AND, UM, YOU KNOW, IF ONE OF THESE OVERPASS AND THAT'S THE WILLIAM CANNON SLAUGHTER ONE, IF ONE OF THOSE OVERPASSES FAILED, IT WOULD ADVERSELY IMPACT THE ENTIRE REGION'S FREIGHT DISTRIBUTION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ABILITIES.

SO, UH, AND THE OTHER ASPECT OF IT IS, UH, IF ONE OF THESE OVERPASSES FAILED, IT COULD FIRSTLY IMPACT REGIONAL MOBILITY.

SO I THINK THAT THEY ARE REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT AT LEE, UH, AND THERE'S THE, UH, THE ONE THROUGH ZILKER ALSO REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT.

SO I WOULD LIKE MORE DETAIL TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TESTS YOU WERE APPLYING TO SAY THAT THESE WERE NOT REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT.

SO FOR ME IN AN HOUR, OR DO WE NEED TO TAKE THIS, DO WE NEED TO JUST HAVE A FURTHER CONVERSATION ABOUT IT? I AM GOING TO SUGGEST THAT Y'ALL TAKE THAT.

UM, THE COMMENT PERIOD IS OPEN FOR A WHILE.

UM, BUT JUST TO, TO, UM, CLARIFY IF YOU WILL, UH, AND PERHAPS WE NEED TO GET MORE SPECIFIC, BUT WE'VE DELINEATED MULTIPLE TIMES IN THE PAST.

UM, WHAT ARE CONSIDERED LOCAL RESPONSIBILITY O AND M KINDS OF PROJECTS.

AND, UM, AND, AND EVERYBODY HAS THEM, EVERY LOCAL ENTITY, WHETHER IT'S CITY OR COUNTY HAS THEM TO DEAL WITH.

AND, AND, UM, THERE'S, I CAN'T COUNT THE NUMBER OF RAIL CROSSINGS THAT GO THROUGH WILLIAMSON COUNTY, BUT THAT ARE STILL CONSIDERED LOCAL, UM, AND IN NATURE.

SO I, I, UH, I, I DON'T THINK WE'RE GONNA SOLVE THAT HERE.

UH, WE CAN CERTAINLY REOPEN THAT DISCUSSION, BUT, UM, MY, MY FEAR IS THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, UH, THAT WOULD BE REQUIRED IF WE START GETTING INTO LOCAL MAINTENANCE ISSUES.

UM, WE'D NEVER FIND A NEW, UM, PROJECT, BUT ANYWAY, ALL THAT TO SAY IS, I THINK STAFF HAS EXPLAINED, UM, WHY THOSE PROJECTS, IN THEIR OPINION, DIDN'T MEET THE BAR.

IF CITY OF AUSTIN CAN PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

BUT, UM, WITH REGARD TO CHANGING OUR POLICY, THAT WOULD TAKE FURTHER DISCUSSION AND A VOTE OF THE BOARD TO DO THAT CHAIR.

I'M NOT ASKING TO CHANGE OUR POLICY.

I DIDN'T, I DIDN'T SUGGEST AT ALL THAT WE CHANGE OUR POLICY.

I DON'T THINK WE NEEDED TO CHANGE OUR POLICY.

AND I, I BELIEVE IN AGREEMENT WITH YOU ON THAT POLICY.

I JUST THINK THAT IN THESE INSTANCES, THE POLICY HAS NOT BEEN APPLIED CONSISTENTLY IN THE WAY THAT, UM, AND, AND THERE ARE, UH, THESE ARE REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT AND I'M HAPPY TO TAKE THIS OFFLINE AND HAVE FURTHER CONVERSATION AND PROVIDE FURTHER INFORMATION, UM, TO ASHBY AND HIS TEAM.

UH, I JUST FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO FLAG IT TODAY.

UH, AND AGAIN, NOPE, NO SUGGESTION.

I AGREE WITH YOUR CONCERNS ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT.

I BELIEVE THAT THESE ARE SO, UH, I WILL, UM, I'LL FOLLOW UP WITH YOU ASHBY ON THESE ITEMS. UM, THANK YOU.

UM, I ALSO JUST HAVE A QUICK QUESTION.

I'M SORRY, I CAN'T SEE THIS.

TELL ME IF YOU'LL IDENTIFY WHO IT IS.

SPEAKING.

JUST SAY YOUR NAME NUMBER ELLIS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SORRY.

I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF US ON THE SCREEN.

UM, I DID JUST WANT TO JUMP INTO SAY, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO UNDERSTAND

[00:35:01]

BETTER THE REGIONAL SIGNIFICANCE, ESPECIALLY IF A BRIDGE MIGHT HAVE A REPLACEMENT, UM, SITUATION OR POTENTIAL HER PLACEMENT NEEDED.

UM, UH, THERE ARE SPACES IN MY DISTRICT THAT WHILE THEY MAY BE IN CITY LIMITS, THEY ARE USED BY MANY PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL, UM, IN AND OUT OF THE CITY LIMITS DAILY.

AND SO I WOULD LIKE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THESE BRIDGES IN PARTICULAR, UM, IF REPLACEMENT WHERE A SITUATION, IT WOULDN'T NECESSARILY BE ROUTINE MAINTENANCE.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO UNDERSTAND THAT A LITTLE BETTER.

IF SOMEONE COULD PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION OFFLINE TO ME, ALL RIGHT, WE WILL HAVE STAFF DO THAT.

AND, UM, AT A FUTURE MEETING PUT TOGETHER A PRESENTATION, PARTICULARLY FOR THE NEWER MEMBERS TO, UM, TO BETTER EXPLAIN, UM, W W HOW WE'VE HISTORICALLY DEFINED REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT AND THE DIFFERENT FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATIONS.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS BEFORE WE HAND IT OVER TO JOYCE, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER HARPER, MADISON HAS HER HAND UP NOW WE GOTTA PUT OURSELVES LIKE BRADY BUNCH STYLE, BECAUSE OTHERWISE IT'S REALLY HARD TO SEE EMILY, IF YOU WOULD CHANGE THE VIEW TO, INSTEAD OF SPEAKER VIEW, JUST SHOWING THE WHOLE PANEL, PLEASE.

YES.

MA'AM, WE'LL WORK ON THAT.

AND WHILE SHE WORKS ON THAT, I CAN, I CAN BE QUICK.

IT'S JUST MORE OF A FOLLOW-UP THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

UH, ASHBY MY CONCERN IS ABOUT TIMING.

I JUST, I WANT TO KNOW IF YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF WHEN WE GET THAT INFORMATION BACK.

WHAT I DON'T WANT TO HAVE HAPPEN IS THAT WE MISS ANY OPPORTUNITIES OR JEOPARDIZE ANY OTHER PROJECTS BECAUSE OF NOT GETTING THE INFORMATION TO YOU IN TIME FOR RECONSIDERATION AROUND COLONY LOOPS.

SO CAN YOU GIVE ME A GOOD IDEA ABOUT WHAT THE TIMING SHOULD LOOK LIKE THERE? SO DEADLINES, I MEAN, CRITICAL, UM, TIMING.

SO IN TERMS OF, OF THIS AMENDMENT CYCLE, THE, UM, THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED, UM, BUT THERE'S A FALL AMENDMENT CYCLE COMING.

AND, UH, AS RYAN SAID EARLIER, WE, YOU, WELL, THE CITY COULD SUBMIT, UH, ANYTIME IN PREPARATION FOR THE FALL AMENDMENT CYCLE, THAT'LL START IN AUGUST OF THIS YEAR AND THE BOARD WOULD TAKE A VOTE IN NOVEMBER.

UM, BUT IN THE INTERIM, LET'S GO AHEAD AND, AND VISIT, UH, AND TALK THROUGH THE ITEMS THAT ARE OF CONCERN.

AND THEN SEE, CAN WE GET THINGS SETTLED IN TIME FOR THE FALL OF EMMA'S CYCLE? SO PLEASE JUST IDENTIFY WHO'S SPEAKING, PLEASE, AND REAL QUICK, JUST SO I CAN MAKE SURE THAT I GET, SO THIS IS AN, UH, MAYOR PRETEND HARPER MADISON.

AGAIN, I THINK MY QUESTION IS STILL THE ANSWER RATHER IS NOT CLEAR THAT WHEN SHOULD WE GET INFORMATION TO YOU OR EXPECT TO GET INFORMATION FROM YOU ALL.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T MISS A DEADLINE.

IF YOU HAVE THE INFORMATION NOW GO AHEAD AND SEND IT.

OKAY, BLESS YOUR KITCHEN.

SHE SHARES AN, UM, SO, UM, SO ASHLEY, I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT LAST STATEMENT OF THE, THE COLON FARC AND THE, THE BRIDGE ISSUES THAT WE ARE RAISING OR ABOUT PROJECTS THAT WERE SUBMITTED FOR THIS TIP PERIOD, NOT FOR THE NEXT ONES.

AND SO WE WERE TALKING ABOUT PROVIDING INFORMATION TO YOU TO CONSIDER THEM FOR THIS TIME PERIOD, NOT FOR CONSIDERATION FOR SUBMISSION IN THE FALL, CAUSE THEY'VE ALREADY BEEN SUBMITTED.

SO I JUST WANT TO KNOW THAT THAT WAS CLEAR AND, AND COUNCIL MEMBER HARPER, MADISON WAS WANTING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GOT YOU THE INFORMATION IN TIME FOR YOU TO REVIEW THAT AT US, TO HAVE A CONVERSATION FOR YOU SO THAT WE CAN CONSIDER THOSE FOR THIS TIP, THIS TIP PERIOD.

SO LET ME ASK RYAN IS, IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THOSE DID NOT GO OUT FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS? YEAH, THAT'S CORRECT.

SO WHEN WE HAD THE, THE DUE DATE WAS ON THE 16TH, UH, FOR APPLICATIONS TO BE SUBMITTED, AND THEN WE SPENT THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS WORKING WITH THE SPONSORS TO TRY AND GET ANY INFORMATION THAT WAS MISSING AND MAKE THOSE DETERMINATIONS ON WHAT, UH, NEEDED TO BE PROCESSED AND WHAT DID, AND I THINK THAT THE IMPORTANT THING AND THE THING THAT WAS PUSHING, UH, YOU KNOW, DRIVES THE, UH, THE DEADLINE IS REALLY THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PERIOD, YOU KNOW, PER OUR PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN.

WE HAVE TO TAKE THESE OUT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT FOR 30 DAYS.

AND SO IF WE TAKE SOMETHING AFTER, YOU KNOW, AND THAT STARTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH.

AND SO THAT'S WHY WE HAD THOSE TWO WEEKS, UH, TO WORK WITH SPONSORS ON THINGS, UM, THAT INCLUDED THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

AND THEN WE HAD SOME OTHER TIP AMENDMENTS THAT WE JUST DIDN'T GET ENOUGH INFORMATION IN ORDER TO PROCESS THOSE.

AND SO, UH, WE CAN STILL WORK WITH THE SPONSORS AND GET THAT STUFF IN.

UM, BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE, UH, NEGATING THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PROCESS TO ADD STUFF IN, UH, THIS LIGHT INTO THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PROCESS.

BUT LIKE I SAID EARLIER, WE CAN ALWAYS DO, UH, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES WE CAN DO AN ADMINISTRATIVE AMENDMENT

[00:40:01]

DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF REQUEST IT IS, BUT WE ALWAYS, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE THE FALL AMENDMENT CYCLE AS WELL.

UM, AND DEPENDING, YOU KNOW, IF FROM RUN OVER CALL, ALL OF THE ONES THAT, UH, WERE NOT PROCESSED THIS CYCLE THAT WERE SUBMITTED, UH, WERE ALL LOCALLY FUNDED PROJECTS.

SO UNLESS THERE'S SOME, UM, FROM WHAT I REVIEWED, I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY REQUIREMENT THAT THEY'D BE IN THE RTP OR THE TIP.

UM, SO HOPEFULLY THAT WOULDN'T IMPACT PROJECT DEVELOPMENT.

UM, AND THEY CAN GO IN, IN THE BOTTOM IN THAT CYCLE, UM, WHICH WILL BE IN, I GUESS WE'LL BE OPENING THAT UP AND THREE, THREE MONTHS, SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SO JUST POINTS TO CONSIDER.

SO RYAN, JUST TO CLARIFY, IF I EVER SUMMARIZE, I THINK WHAT I HEARD YOU SAY IS, UM, IF THERE'S LOCAL FUNDS ON THOSE PROJECTS, THOSE, UM, ENTITIES CAN CONTINUE AND SHOULD CONTINUE WORKING ON THOSE.

UM, AND IF THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE TO BE CONSIDERED, THAT WOULD BE IN THE FALL CYCLE.

YES MA'AM.

AND THAT'S THE IMPORTANT, THE TIP, UH, SPECIFICALLY THE REQUIREMENTS ARE BORN OUT OF THE FEDERAL FUNDING REQUIREMENTS FROM FTA AND HWA.

SO IF YOU GET FEDERAL FUNDING THROUGH ANY OF THOSE PROGRAMS, YOU HAVE TO BE LISTED, BUT OFTENTIMES, YOU KNOW, IF IT'S A COMPLETELY LOCALLY FUNDED PROJECTS, THERE'S NOT A, YOU KNOW, A HARD REQUIREMENT.

UM, IT'S REALLY IN THERE FOR PUBLIC INFORMATION PURPOSES, UH, SPECIFICALLY IN THE LONG RANGE PLAN.

AND AS THOSE PROJECTS GO THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS, I MEAN, SHOULDN'T HOLD UP ANYTHING REALLY.

UM, AND THEN IF THEY DO HAPPEN TO GET FEDERAL FUNDING, THEN WE CAN AMEND IT A LATER TIME.

SO WE'VE GOT TO ANSWER THAT, OKAY, COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN, IF THIS IS RELEVANT TO THIS DISCUSSION, OR IF IT'S ONE YOU NEED TO TAKE OFFLINE WITH STAFF, UM, I UNDERSTAND I CAN CLOSE WITH THIS.

UM, I THINK I, I WANT TO REVISIT THIS WITH STAFF AND WE'LL DO SO IMMEDIATELY.

UH, UH, OUR STAFF WAS ONLY NOTIFIED ONE WEEK BEFORE THE COMMENT PERIOD THAT THESE PROJECTS WERE NOT GOING TO BE, UH, INCLUDED AND, AND WHAT I WAS NOT AWARE THAT WE WERE NOW FORECLOSED FROM INCLUDING THEM.

SO I'D LIKE TO BRAINSTORM WITH ASHBY ABOUT HOW TO GET, BRING THESE FORWARD AND NOT TO WAIT UNTIL THE FALL CYCLE.

SO I'LL BE HAPPY TO TAKE THAT OFFLINE DON'T I DON'T THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE FOR, YOU KNOW, FOR OUR ER STAFF, JUST TO SAY THAT SOMETHING'S NOT GOING TO BE INCLUDED AND WE'RE FORECLOSED FROM MAKING THAT DECISION.

SO WE'LL HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH ASHBY OFFLINE AND SEE WHAT OUR OPTIONS ARE TO BE CLEAR, THE STAFF WAS FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES WE'VE SET.

I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY MADE ARBITRARY DECISIONS.

AND THAT'S, AGAIN, A POLICY THAT THIS BOARD HAS SET IN TERMS OF REGIONALLY SIGNIFICANT, ET CETERA.

AND THAT'S A BIGGER QUESTION TO ADDRESS, UM, YES, CHAIR, CHAIR.

I AGREE WITH YOU ON THAT.

IT'S JUST THAT, YOU KNOW, THE APPLICATION OF OUR, OUR POLICY, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES THERE CAN BE, UM, SOME, YOU KNOW, THERE'S SOME DISCRETION THERE IN, IN HOW YOU APPLY THAT.

AND THAT'S ALL I'M TALKING ABOUT.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT CHANGES AND THE POLICY OKAY.

NOTED.

UM, WE WILL CLOSE DISCUSSION ON THAT ITEM AND TURN IT OVER TO JOYCE FOR ANY MORE INFORMATION, UM, THAT YOU HAVE ON THE PUBLIC INPUT.

THANK YOU, CAROLINE.

EMILY, IF YOU CAN GO BACK TO THE SLIDES PLEASE.

SO THE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD OPENED LAST WEEK ON MAY 3RD.

UH, THIS IS SERVING AS THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE COMMENT PERIOD.

SO THERE'S AN ONLINE OPEN HOUSE WITH THE PROJECT LIST AND THE MAPS OF THOSE PROJECT LOCATIONS.

ALONG WITH PROJECT SPONSOR CONTACT INFORMATION, UH, THE PROJECT SPONSORS ARE GOING TO BE THE BEST SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR THE PUBLIC.

SO THERE IS A CONTACT LISTED IN THE ONLINE OPEN HOUSE.

UH, WE WILL BE DOING TWO LIVE PRESENTATIONS NEXT WEEK ON MAY 19TH AND 20TH, THAT WILL BE LIVE STREAMED ON THE CAMPUS WEBSITE.

SO WE'RE STILL, UM, NOT HAVING THE TRADITIONAL IN-PERSON OPEN HOUSES, BUT THERE'S A VARIETY OF WAYS THAT THE PUBLIC CAN STILL, UM, SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS AND, UM, PROVIDE COMMENTS TO THE BOARD.

SO, AS I MENTIONED, ALL OF THE MATERIAL IS AVAILABLE ON CAMPO, TEXAS.ORG.

FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO PARTICIPATE ONLINE, IF YOU PREFER NOT TO PARTICIPATE ONLINE OR WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE HARD COPIES OF THE MATERIAL, YOU CAN CALL SEVEN THREE SEVEN ZERO EIGHT EIGHT ONE FOUR FOUR AND LEAVE A MESSAGE WITH YOUR MAILING ADDRESS AND NAME.

UH, WE CAN MAIL THAT INFORMATION TO YOU.

YOU CAN ALSO LEAVE COMMENTS BY VOICEMAIL.

AND SO THIS IS NOT ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT IS AVAILABLE, BUT RIGHT NOW, BEING THAT WE'RE NOT HAVING IN-PERSON MEETING OPPORTUNITIES, YOU CAN DEFINITELY LEAVE THOSE COMMENTS BY VOICEMAIL.

IF YOU'VE GOT QUESTIONS OR WANT TO TALK WITH PROJECTS WITH STAFF ABOUT ANY OF THE PROJECTS THAT ARE LISTED, YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE THERE AND WE CAN RETURN

[00:45:01]

YOUR CALL.

YOU CAN SEND EMAIL COMMENTS IN, UM, YOU CAN ALSO FAX THEM OR MAIL THEM INTO OUR OFFICE.

UM, AND AS I MENTIONED, THIS IS, UM, WE'RE NOT HAVING ANY IN-PERSON OPPORTUNITIES, SO THERE'S A VARIETY OF WAYS THAT PEOPLE CAN LEAVE THEIR COMMENTS THIS WAY.

UM, AND JUST AS A REMINDER, THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN SAYS THAT THIS IS CAMPOS PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROCESS.

SO, UM, IN ADDITION TO THIS PROCESS, PROJECT SPONSORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HAVING THEIR OWN PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT, MEETINGS AND PROCESS AS WELL.

SO, UM, JUST A REMINDER THAT ALL OF THIS WILL END THE COMMENT PERIOD WILL END ON JUNE 3RD.

ANYTHING ELSE? JOYCE? THAT'S ALL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UM, I APPRECIATE Y'ALL'S CREATIVITY AND, AND MULTIPLE PLATFORMS. UM,

THERE IS STILL ENGAGEMENT THAT NEEDS TO OCCUR.

I'M SAYING, DUDE, BY THE WAY, THIS IS ALL CONCEPTUAL.

OR IS IT A CERTAIN MECHANISM OR THING, OR, OR HOW, HOW DOES THAT PLAY INTO THAT RIGHT THERE? I THOUGHT THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD NEAR THE ROCKETS NEARBY CAN ANSWER THAT FOR US PLEASE.

SO IN THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE, COUNCIL, AS A MEMBER OF THE CAMP, KIMBERLEY HOLMES, A LARGE FARM, UH, NATIONAL IN SCOPE AND, UM, A LOT OF THEIR OUTREACH PEOPLE ARE NOT IN THIS MARKET.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ASKING THE TECH CAUSE THEY'VE GOT DATA SOURCES THAT WE NEED THAT WE DON'T HAVE, UM, AS INDIVIDUAL AGENTS, AS, AS CAMPO.

UH, AND WE'LL BE ASKING THEM ALSO, UH, NEAR OF, AND I HAD THIS CONVERSATION EARLIER LAST WEEK.

[8. Discussion and Take Appropriate Action on CAMPO Appointment to Capital Metro Board]

ITEM NUMBER EIGHT.

WE HAVE ONE INDIVIDUAL THAT HAS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK ON ITEM NUMBER EIGHT, AND THAT IS A NOVIA JOSEPH.

UM, MS. JOSEPH, ARE YOU STILL WITH US? THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR.

OKAY.

YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES.

YOUR TIME BEGINS NOW.

THANK YOU.

MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS.

I'M ZENOBIA JOSEPH.

MY COMMENTS ARE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO ITEM EIGHT, THE REAPPOINTMENT OF TERRY MITCHELL TO CAPITOL METRO'S BOARDS.

I OPPOSE THIS ITEM WHEN HE CAME BEFORE YOU ON AUGUST 13TH, 2018.

I STATED THEN, AND WE'LL RESTATE TODAY.

I FIRST TESTIFIED BEFORE, UM, MR. MITCHELL, AS IT RELATED TO THE SAMSUNG AREA, TRANSPORTATION NEEDS ON DECEMBER 5TH, 2016.

AT THAT TIME, HE SAID HE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT THE AREA, AND I SENT HIM A MAP AS HE REQUESTED.

AND SO I WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE'S BEEN A LACK OF TRANSPARENCY.

I REQUESTED A COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS WHEN THEY WENT THROUGH THE CONNECTIONS 2025 PROCESS, WHICH THEN BECAME CAP REMAP WHEN IT WAS REBRANDED.

AND THAT WAS NEVER TRANSPARENTLY GIVEN TO THE BOARD OR THE PUBLIC AUGUST 28TH, 2018 ON OUR, ABOUT RBJ SENIOR CITIZENS, ACTUALLY A GRANT TO GET THEIR BUS A SECOND BUS TO THEIR FAVORITE ATV ON SEVENTH AND PLEASANT VALLEY.

WHILE THOSE IN NORTHEAST AUSTIN AND NORTHWEST AUSTIN, SPECIFICALLY MERRELL TOWN AND DISTRICT SEVEN COUNCIL MEMBER POOLS AREA HAVE TO NOW WALK ONE MILE TO THE BUS STOP.

IT'S APPROXIMATELY 1.3 TO FOUR MILES IN THE AREA THAT'S IN NORTHEAST AUSTIN.

AND THAT'S SPECIFICALLY IN TRAVIS COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S COURT, DECEMBER, 2020 BOARD PACKET.

THAT'S HOW FAR AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS FROM TRANSIT.

I JUST WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT MANY OF THESE DECISIONS ARE FINANCIALLY RELATED AND MR. MITCHELL HAS NOT BEEN TRANSPARENT.

YOU HEARD ME SPEAK EARLIER ABOUT THESE METRO RAPID LINES.

AND I WENT BACK TO MY NOTES AND SPECIFICALLY JANUARY 11, 2021, I GOT AN EMAIL FROM MR. ASHBY, UM, AS IT RELATED TO ASHBY JOHNSON, AS IT RELATED TO THE SCORING MATRIX, AND SPECIFICALLY THAT THE CAMP OF 2045 LONG RANGE PLAN HAD THOSE THREE METRO RAPID LINES THAT ARE REFERRED TO IN NORTHEAST AUSTIN, THAT TOTAL $18.4 MILLION BURNING AND OAK HILL TOTAL $41.2 MILLION.

SO I WANT TO THANK COUNCIL MEMBER METAYER FOR ACTUALLY ASKING A FOLLOW-UP QUESTION.

I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU SPECIFICALLY, AS IT RELATED TO THE NORTH CORRIDOR IN 2014, AS SPECIFIED THAT 14 OF THE REGIONAL GROWTH CENTERS IDENTIFIED IN CAMPOS LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN OR IN THE NORTH CORRIDOR, THE MOST IN ANY CORRIDOR STUDIED IN PROJECT CONNECT FROM 20 2005 TO 2035, THE REGION'S POPULATION AND EMPLOYMENT ARE FORECAST TO INCREASE BY 123% AND 135% RESPECTIVELY.

AND LASTLY, ALMOST TWO THIRDS OF THE JOBS TO MOST POPULATED COUNTIES WILL BE LOCATED IN THIS CORRIDOR BY 2035 AND WILL ACCOUNT FOR 58% OF ALL JOBS IN THIS FIVE COUNTY REGION.

AND SO I JUST WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT MR. MITCHELL HAD AN OBLIGATION TO US, THE CITIZENS TO ACTUALLY THE COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS, AND TO ACTUALLY SHOW US WHY THOSE ROUTES WERE SELECTED BEFORE VOTERS ACTUALLY APPROVED THIS PLAN NOVEMBER 3RD.

AND LASTLY, I'LL JUST TELL YOU, JUNE 20TH, 20, WE APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

THANK YOU.

MA'AM I APPRECIATE YOU, UM, TO MAKE THE COMMENT OKAY.

UM, MR. JOHNSON, WE HAVE DISCUSSED AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION ON THE CAMPO APPOINTMENT, THE CAPITAL METRO BOARD, UM, MR. MITCHELL HAS APPARENTLY, UH, DECIDED HE LOVES THIS SO MUCH.

HE, UM, IS WILLING TO BE REAPPOINTED.

UM, IS THERE A MOTION TO REAPPOINT TERRY MITCHELL? THERE MAY PRETEND HARPER MADISON.

I'D LIKE TO MAKE THAT MOTION.

OKAY.

I'LL SECOND IT COMMISSIONER JONES.

OKAY.

WE'VE GOT A MOTION AND A SECOND TO REAPPOINT TERRY MITCHELL TO THE BOARD OF CAP.

METRO.

IS THERE ANYONE AGAINST THAT MOTION? OKAY.

UM, THEN THE MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, TERRY.

UM, WE'LL, WE'LL VOTE YOU IN A HUNDRED PERCENT PAY RAISE FOR THAT LAST TIME I CHECKED ON BATH A HUNDRED, A HUNDRED PERCENT TIMES.

ZERO IS STILL ZERO.

YES.

THANK YOU.

UM, AND JUST A REMINDER TO, UM,

[01:00:01]

OUR NEW BOARD MEMBERS, UH, CAMPO HAS TWO APPOINTEES TO THE CAP.

METRO BOARD.

TERRY IS ONE OF THOSE AND THEN WADE, UH, COOPER IS THE OTHER ONE.

SO, UM, THANK YOU ALL.

ALL RIGHT.
