[B1. Rezoning: C14-2021-0056 - 1609 Matthews Lane Rezoning; District 5]

TO B ONE, WHICH IS, UH, WE'RE DISCUSSING POSTPONEMENT.

AND LET'S SEE IF I CAN REMEMBER HOW THIS GOES.

THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC HEARING, AND WE ARE NOT ABLE TO DELVE INTO THE MERITS OF THE CASE.

POSTPONEMENT MUST BE 60 DAYS FROM TODAY'S MEETING.

THERE WILL BE NO STAFF INTRODUCTION.

UM, SO WE CAN TALK TO FROM TWO MINUTES FROM EACH SIDE OR TWO FROM EACH SIDE AND THEY GET TWO MINUTES EACH.

SO WE IS THERE, ARE THERE SPEAKERS, ANDREW? SURE.

WE'LL BEGIN FROM HEARING, UM, THE REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT FROM MR. SUTTON FOR TWO MINUTES.

MY NAME IS EUGENE SUTTON.

I'M THE PRESIDENT OF THE MATTHEW CELINE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

WE REQUESTED A POSTPONEMENT ON MAY 4TH, AND WE'VE HAD ANY NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING ON MAY 11TH.

OUR ORGANIZATION HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN 1105 MATTHEWS AND VALID PETITIONS ON THAT.

AND 1609.

WE'VE HAD MULTIPLE MEETINGS WITH DEVELOPERS AND PETITIONERS ON 1105.

I'VE WRITTEN TO MS. HOSS SEVERAL TIMES AND WE'VE COMMUNICATED THROUGH EMAIL.

WE'RE ALSO INVOLVED WITH SOUTH STONE, WHICH IS CONSTRUCTING 232 UNITS BEHIND US AND THERE'S TRAFFIC ISSUES AND CONSTRUCTION ISSUES WHERE OUR, OUR, OUR OUTREACH COMMITTEE HAS ASKED ME FOR AN POSTPONEMENT.

AND I WROTE TO WENDY ROSE ROADS AND VICTORIA HOS ON FRIDAY LAST, WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A POSTPONEMENT TO JUNE 1ST.

WE'D ALSO LIKE WE'VE ALSO INVITED MS. HAAS TO A ZOOM MEETING AND TO BEGIN DISCUSSION ON OUR FEELINGS ABOUT THIS ISSUE ON 1609.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

AND THEN NEXT WOULD BE THIS FOLKS, OR IS THERE A POSITION TO THE POSTPONEMENT OR THE, IS THE APPLICANT? YES.

GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

THIS IS VICTORIA HOTSY WITH SERVER DESIGN ON BEHALF OF THE PROPERTY OWNERS OF 1609 MATTHEW BLAINE.

AND WE DID AGREE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD FIRST REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT AND MADE OURSELVES AVAILABLE TO MEET OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS AND ALSO PROVIDED A VERY GENERAL SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT BY EMAIL, WHEN OUR AUTHORS TO ME WERE NOT THAT WE'VE NOT RECEIVED QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, OR CONCERNS FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD TODAY AND ONLY JUST FRIDAY AS MR. SUTTON SAID, WE DID RECEIVE

[00:10:01]

A GENERAL INVITE SET UP A MEETING NOW THAT THEY HAVE A PETITION UNDERWAY FOR THIS PROPERTY, UM, OR THIS PROJECT, THIS REASON IN CASE.

SO WE REMAIN WILLING AND WE'RE AGREEABLE TO MEET WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD AFTER TONIGHT AND PRIOR TO COUNCIL.

HOWEVER, WE ARE NOT AGREEABLE TO THEIR SECOND REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT.

UM, AT THIS POINT, UH, PUBLIC HEARING THIS EVENING WILL PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO LEARN MORE, PROVIDE THEIR CONCERNS, UH, UM, AFTER THIS MEETING AND HOPEFULLY BENEFIT FROM THE DIALOGUE THAT THE COMMISSION COULD HAVE TONIGHT.

SO, UM, WITH THAT WE, UH, RESPECTFULLY ASK THAT WE CONTINUE FORWARD THIS EVENING WITH THE PUBLIC HEARING.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THAT CONCLUDES THE SPEAKERS FOR POSTPONEMENT AND, UH, AGAINST POSTPONEMENT.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMISSIONERS, COMMISSIONER KING.

THANK YOU, CHAIR.

UM, THE, UH, YEAH, UH, YOU KNOW, I WAS JUST LISTENING TO THE SPEAKER OF, YOU KNOW, FOR THE POSTPONEMENT AND I DO CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THAT THERE'S A LOT OF DEVELOPMENT GOING ON AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THEY'VE, THEIR HANDS ARE FULL.

AND AS YOU KNOW, SO I REALLY DO APPRECIATE THAT THEY NEED A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME, AND I WOULD PREFER THAT THE, UH, THAT THE APPLICANT AND THE DEVELOPERS MEET WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD EARLY ON IN THE PROCESS AND GET FEEDBACK EARLY ON BECAUSE THE SOONER THAT FEEDBACK IS INCORPORATED, THE BETTER THE PROJECT'S GOING TO BE ALONG THE WAY.

SO, AND, AND I DO HAVE A QUESTION FOR STAFF.

IS THIS SCHEDULED TOO FOR THE JUNE 3RD COUNCIL MEETING? IS THIS WENDY ROSE? YES.

OKAY.

SO WE COULD DO A POSTPONEMENT TO OUR JUNE 1ST MEETING, HANDLED THE CASE THERE AND STILL MAKE THE TIMELINE FOR THE COUNCIL MEETING ON JUNE THE THIRD.

CAUSE OUR NEXT COUNT, OUR NEXT MEETING IS ON JUNE THE FIRST.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MS. HERRERA.

THERE'S STILL TIME AND TARA IN THE INTEREST OF TIME.

IF THERE'S NO ONE ELSE GOING TO MAKE A COMMENT, I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO SUPPORT THE POPO POSTPONEMENT REQUEST TO OUR JUNE 1ST MEETING.

UH, IS THAT, UH, THE SECOND COMMISSIONER THOMPSON? YES.

OKAY.

SURE.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION OR IS THERE ANY OTHER DISCUSSION? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR NINE.

OKAY.

AND THOSE OPPOSED? OKAY.

THAT LOOKS LIKE NINE 21.

OH, IT WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL JUNE 1ST.

THANK YOU.

SO WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON TO BEAT TWO ITEM AT B2.

AND AS I MENTIONED, I'M GOING TO RECUSE MYSELF FROM THIS ITEM CHAIR, COMMISSIONER LINKS ON ADVAIR.

WE HAVE ANOTHER DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT ON ITEM B THREE.

SO YOU'RE SAYING I SHOULD DO THAT ONE FIRST.

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING? CORRECT.

OKAY.

LET'S DO THAT THEN.

SO, UM, ITEM B3

[B3. Rezoning: C14-2020-0151 - 8401 - 8407 South 1st Street; District 2 (Part 1 of 2)]

AND WE HAVE, UM, SO THERE WAS, THAT ARE IN FAVOR OF THE POSTPONEMENT.

WE'LL GO FIRST AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE, WELL, IT SAYS FOR AN OPPOSE, I DON'T KNOW WHO THE FIRST SPEAKER IS.

IS IT MR. SIPES OR CHRIS SIPES? CHAIR OF THE REQUESTER WAS MR. JEFF MILLER.

WE'LL HEAR FROM MR. MILLER.

OH, I SEE.

OKAY.

HELLO.

HI.

HELLO.

MY NAME IS JEFF MILLER.

I'M A HOMEOWNER ON BEAVERBROOK LANE DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE SITE WE'RE REQUESTING POSTPONEMENT FOR THE JUNE 1ST.

THAT MEANS THE APPLICANT AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE JUST MET LAST FRIDAY NIGHT, MAY 14TH WITH THE ZONING CASE MANAGER AND ATTENDANCE.

AND WE'RE ABLE TO REVIEW THE APPLICANT'S PROPOSAL AS IT RELATES TO SITE DEVELOPMENT, BUILDING PLACEMENT, HEIGHT, SETBACKS, LANDSCAPING, FENCING, PLUS RELATED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM ISSUES ON SOUTH BURKE STREET AND DRAINAGE ISSUES THAT IMPACT THE BEACON RIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE HAVE NOT HAD ADEQUATE TIME TO REVIEW AND DATE WITH OUR NEIGHBORS TO DISCUSS NEXT STEPS.

WE WOULD APPRECIATE THE ADDITIONAL TIME GRANTED THROUGH A TWO WEEK POST COMMENT TO REGROUP.

THANK YOU.

AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONSIDERATION.

ANDREW, WERE THERE ANY OTHER SPEAKERS SIGNED UP FOR THE POSTPONEMENT? SURE.

SO IS SPEAKING WITH MR. MILLER? UM, HE WAS THE ONLY ONE REQUESTING THE POSTPONEMENT.

HOWEVER, I DO HAVE ADDITIONAL SPEAKERS, UM, REGISTERED IN OPPOSITION, THE ZONING CASE ITSELF.

UM, PERHAPS ONE OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO WISH TO, UM, PROVIDE REMARKS.

[00:15:06]

UM, JENNIFER, LAURA AND I MOVED INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD IN APRIL AND ONLY LEARNED OF THIS CASE AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

YOU IDENTIFY, CAN YOU IDENTIFY YOURSELF PLEASE? IS THIS, UM, MR. MCAFEE? YES, THIS IS DYLAN MCAFEE.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

GO AHEAD.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

UH, SO WE ONLY MOVED IN AT, UH, IN APRIL AND LEARNED ABOUT THIS AT THE END OF APRIL.

AND, UH, HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO COLLECT ADEQUATE INFORMATION.

WE GOT ON A LAST MINUTE MEETING LAST FRIDAY AND WE'RE IN FAVOR OF POSTPONEMENT JUST BECAUSE, UH, WE'D LIKE TO DISCUSS MORE AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CASE.

THANKS FOR CONSIDERATION.

OKAY.

AND THEN, UM, I IS THE APPLICANT OR ANYONE ELSE WENT IN GOING TO SPEAK AGAINST THE POSTPONEMENT TOUR COMMISSIONER LAYS ON IT, VERY HEAR FROM MR. HARTMAN FOLLOWED BY MR. MIGUEL, LAURA.

OKAY, GOOD EVENING CHAIR AND COMMISSIONERS.

THIS IS DAVID HARTMAN ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT WAYFINDER REAL ESTATE.

YOU'RE OPPOSED TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S SECOND REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT.

THIS IS, UM, THE MOST FULLY DEVELOPED A ROBUST ZONING CASE FOR ZAP IN TERMS OF BUFFERING DRAIN IS TRANSPORTATION.

AND MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER REALLY, WE AGREED TO THE ONE MONTH POSTPONEMENT ON APRIL 20TH, PARTLY SO WE COULD MEET.

THERE'S BEEN NO QUOTE UNQUOTE NEW INFORMATION SINCE THAT TIME, OTHER THAN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AND AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING COMPONENT, BOTH KIND OF NON ZONING.

UM, WE'VE HAD FOUR MEETINGS, INCLUDING WITH DRAINAGE STAFF, ZONING STAFF SINCE EARLY MARCH.

THEY'VE BEEN WIDELY ATTENDED BY, YOU KNOW, A DOZEN 16 OR SO NEIGHBORS.

THOSE MEETINGS WERE FOLLOWED UP BY EMAILS, UH, DELIVERING, UH, WORK PRODUCT.

AND THERE'VE BEEN TWO MEETINGS.

FOR EXAMPLE, SINCE THE LAST POSTPONEMENT WITH MULTIPLE EMAILS, UM, UM, DRAINAGE AND ATD STAFF IS ON THE PHONE TONIGHT AND WE'RE READY TO PROCEED AND MOVE FORWARD.

AND I WOULD JUST CLOSE BY ASKING THAT YOU DON'T PENALIZE WITH FURTHER DELAY.

AS A DEVELOPER HAS BEEN BENDING OVER BACKWARDS TO RESPOND TO REASONABLE REQUESTS AND HONOR THE, THE GENERAL ZAP POLICY OF, OF ONE POSTPONEMENT.

AND THIS IS MAC MAC OR AT THE APPLICANT, YOU KNOW, I'LL JUST ADD THAT WE HAVE SEVERAL ADJOINING NEIGHBORS THAT DO SUPPORT THIS PROJECT ALREADY.

AND THAT'S AFTER SIGNIFICANT CORRESPONDENCE, BOTH IN PERSON VIA ZOOM, UM, OR REGULARLY BY EMAIL AND PHONE.

UH, WE'VE MOST RECENTLY MET WITH, UH, THE PROPERTY OWNERS IMMEDIATELY, IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OF THE PROPERTY THAT, UH, UH, ENCOMPASSES THE ENTIRE SOUTHERN PROPERTY LINE WHO MOST RECENTLY SUBMITTED A LETTER OF SUPPORT AS WELL.

UM, THE DIALOGUE WITH THE NEIGHBORS, UM, HAS BEEN VERY OPEN AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE SO, UH, THROUGH ZAP AND THEREAFTER, AS WE APPROACH THINGS ENTER INTO THE SUMMER MONTHS AND GO INTO COUNCIL.

AND, UH, WE, WE HAVE EVERY INTENTION OF CONTINUING THAT DIALOGUE AND CONTINUING TO BUILD OUT, UM, OUR PLANS FOR THIS DEVELOPMENT, SO THAT IT'S, UH, CONTINUES ON ITS PATH OF BEING BENEFICIAL TO THE NEIGHBORS AS WELL AS TO THE PROJECT ITSELF.

UM, BUT YOU KNOW, AT THE END OF THE DAY WE HAVE, UM, SOME SIGNIFICANT CONTRACTUAL DEADLINES AND OBLIGATIONS THAT WE HAVE TO MEET AND WE ARE, WE'RE BUMPING UP AGAINST THOSE, UM, WITH ANY ADDITIONAL DELAY, UM, TO THE PSAP COMMISSION MEETING TONIGHT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, I BELIEVE THAT'S ALL THE SPEAKERS.

DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION? HEY, UM, THANK YOU CHAIR.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO ASK WENDY, UM, A FEW QUESTIONS INCLUDING THE BIG ONE OF THEM IS WHEN IS THIS SCHEDULED FOR COUNCIL AND ANY OBSERVATIONS SHE COULD ADD TO THIS, THIS CASE? THIS IS WENDY RHODES.

THIS IS, THIS CASE IS, WILL BE SCHEDULED FOR COUNCIL ON THE 29TH OF JULY.

UH, JUST TOO.

YES.

AND YES, UH, THE 29TH OF JULY.

SO NOT, NOT ONE OF THE JUNE MEETINGS.

UH, I DID HOLD A HOST, A MEETING LAST WEEK WITH DRAINAGE ENGINEERING AND WATERSHED ENGINEERING STAFF.

UH, EIGHT INTERESTED NEIGHBORS JOINED AS WELL AS THE APPLICANT, UM, DISCUSSING DRAINAGE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT WOULD BE IMPLEMENTED AT THE TIME OF SITE PLAN.

I ALSO HOSTED A, ANOTHER MEETING LAST FRIDAY NIGHT AND APPROXIMATELY 11 RESIDENTS WERE IN ATTENDANCE.

UH, I DON'T HAVE A UNIFIED POSITION FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD

[00:20:01]

AT THIS TIME.

UM, THERE HAS BEEN, YOU KNOW, SEVERAL DIFFERENT COMMENT RESPONSES, BUT, UH, NOT A UNIFIED OR AGREED UPON, UH, POSITION ON THIS ZONING CASE.

UM, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO OFFER AN OPINION ABOUT, DO YOU THINK MORE TIME WOULD GIVE THEM A WIN-WIN WOULD GIVE EVERYBODY A WIN-WIN BASED ON THE EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE TODAY? I, I THINK THAT ADDITIONAL TIME MIGHT BE HELPFUL.

UM, BUT I, I CAN'T BE CERTAIN BASED ON, BECAUSE I KNOW SOME ARE IN SUPPORT RIGHT NOW AND SOME ARE OPPOSED RIGHT NOW, ADDITIONAL TIME MAY BRING THE TWO SIDES CLOSER TOGETHER.

AND PERHAPS ALSO, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A VENDING CASE WITH THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS.

THERE MAY BE OTHER COVENANTS THAT COULD BE CREATED DURING THE TWO WEEK POST-OP PERIOD THAT'S BEING REQUESTED.

YEAH, I SEE LOTS OF HANDS.

UM, AND I DON'T, I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION TO WHO WAS FIRST.

WAS THAT, ARE YOU DONE COMMISSIONER LABASA YES, I AM.

THANK YOU.

AND THANK YOU, WENDY.

AND THANK YOU.

YOU'VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF CALLS AND EMAILS ABOUT THIS, SO THANK YOU SO MUCH.

LET'S GO WITH, UH, KOSTA FIRST AND THEN, UH, SMITH AND BREE.

CAUSE THAT'S HOW YOU'RE ON MY SCREEN.

OH, YOU'RE ON MUTE COMMISSIONER KOSTA.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

I THANK YOU, SHARON.

REALLY? I JUST WANTED TO TRY AND GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROCESS IF WHAT'S THE CONSEQUENCE OF US NOT HEARING THE CASE TODAY, IF WE DO, WE MAKE A RECOMMENDATION AND THEY'RE STILL GOING TO WAIT UNTIL JULY BEFORE THEY'RE HEARD BEFORE COUNCIL.

AND IF WE POSTPONE, WE HAVE FROM NOW TILL, YOU KNOW, TILL JUNE 1ST, I GUESS, TO HEAR AND THAT'LL HAVE THE SAME OUTCOME, NO MATTER WHAT IS THAT CORRECT? YEAH, I GUESS I'M JUST TRYING TO SAY, IS THERE, IS THERE, IS THERE A D UH, DOES ANYTHING, DOES ANYTHING PUSH THEIR, THEIR DEADLINES OR THEIR OBLIGATIONS FOR NOT HOLDING THE MEETING OR NOT HEARING THE CASE LATER? THAT MAY BE FOR THE APPLICANT? OKAY.

YEAH.

THIS IS DAVID HARTMAN.

AGAIN, I WOULD JUST REITERATE WHAT I, WHAT I PREVIOUSLY SAID, YOU KNOW, IN THE BACKUP THERE'S A ONE-PAGER THAT KIND OF HAS THE, THE, WITHOUT GETTING TO THE SUBSTANCE OF IT WITH, UH, HAS THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS THAT THEY'VE BEEN BASICALLY IDENTICAL SINCE THE APRIL 20TH MEETING.

WE'VE HAD TWO SUBSEQUENT MEETINGS SINCE THAT TIME.

AND, AND, UM, FRANKLY, I DON'T, IF WE WERE BASICALLY FORCED TO, TO A TWO WEEK POSTPONEMENT AND FORCED TO MEET AGAIN, I DON'T KNOW WHAT ADDITIONAL THAT COULD BE ADDRESSED IN THAT INTERIM TIME.

I THINK, LIKE I SAID, THIS IS THE MOST FULLY DEVELOPED, ROBUST ZONING CASE.

IT SUPPORTED BY, YOU KNOW, PLENTY OF PEOPLE IN THE NEIGHBORS NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, OTHER THAT ARE, THAT ARE NOT ON THIS PHONE CALL.

SO I THINK THAT, UH, BASICALLY THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR US TO, TO HEAR THIS CASE, HEAR FROM ATD STAFF, HEAR FROM DRAINING STAFF AND PROCEED, AND THERE WOULD BE BASICALLY NO NEW INFORMATION TODAY COMPARED TO FOUR WEEKS AGO.

AND THERE'LL BE NO NEW INFORMATION IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS IN TERMS OF A COMPROMISE OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

WE'VE BENT OVER BACKWARDS TO COMPROMISE AND OFFER FAIRLY DRAMATIC, ENHANCED BUFFERING DRAINAGE, AND TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS TO THAT, THAT WE'RE READY TO SPEAK WITH ZAP ABOUT MR. SMITH AND THEN BRADEN.

YEAH, I MEAN, IN MY MIND, THIS IS A CASE WHERE CAME BEFORE 30 DAYS AGO, WE GAVE THEM 30 DAYS TO MEET, BEAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

THEY MET WITH THEM SEVERAL TIMES.

UH, SO THEY WENT OUT OF THE WAY THEY HAD MEETINGS, THE CITY HOSTED MEETINGS, UM, EVERYTHING WE'VE ASKED THE AFRICANS TO DO THE APP IS DONE, UM, AND I'M READY TO MOVE FORWARD.

AND THAT'S REALLY THE CASE AT THIS POINT IN TIME, THERE'LL BE PLENTY OF TIME TO CONTINUE MEETING AND THAT WE'RE BETWEEN NOW CITY COUNCIL.

UM, BUT WE NEED TO HAVE SOME STEPS MOVING FORWARD.

AND I GUESS TIME FOR THE PLAN IS TO MAKE IT UP THE WEIGH IN AND GIVE THEIR THOUGHTS ON THE PROJECT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

UM, SO I WAS GOING TO ASK THE APPLICANT IF THEY WERE AWARE OF WHAT, UH, WENDY ROSE HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE JULY 29TH DATA BELIEFS THAT SHE'S QUOTED.

CAUSE IF THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT IT BEING, YOU KNOW, PROBLEM WITH DELAYS, UM, IS THAT SOMETHING THEY WERE AWARE OF THAT THEY WOULD TRY TO GET IT SOONER? AND I WOULD ALSO HAVE WINDY ROADS, LIKE IF THEY WOULD, WHY IS TAKING, WHY THERE'S THE DELAY AND IF THERE WOULD BE POTENTIALLY CONSIDERED, UH, SOONER ON COUNCIL, I'D BE HAPPY TO, TO ANSWER THE LAST QUESTION, WHICH IS THAT THE NOTIFICATION

[00:25:01]

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE JUNE 10TH MEETING HAVE ALREADY PASSED AND THEN THE COUNCIL TAKES A SUMMER BREAK AND THEIR FIRST MEETING, UH, AFTER THE SUMMER BREAK IS THE 29TH OF JULY AND COMMISSIONER BRAY.

I WOULD, I WOULD SAY THAT, YOU KNOW, THE COINCIDENCE OF WHEN THE NEXT COUNCIL MEETING MIGHT BE FOR THIS CASE IS REALLY, UM, IT'S REALLY NOT A FACTOR.

IT'S, IT'S THE POINT.

UM, AS, UH, COMMISSIONER SMITH, UH, STATED, UH, WE, WE AGREED TO A 30 DAY DELAY AND WE'VE HAD TWO MEETINGS, UM, WITH DRAINAGE STAFF WE'VE, YOU KNOW, PROVIDE MULTIPLE RESPONSES AND BASICALLY, YOU KNOW, IT'S TIME FOR THE LAND USE COMMISSION, DOES THAT TO WEIGH IN AND MAKE THE RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL.

AND I THINK YOU'D BE BASICALLY PENALIZING A DEVELOPER WHO'S BEEN, UH, AGREEING TO ALL KINDS OF ENHANCED BUFFERING, ET CETERA, BY, UM, FORCING ADDITIONAL DELAY, ADDITIONAL TIME.

UM, AT THIS JUNCTURE, LIKE I SAID, OUR, OUR, OUR DOOR IS OPEN AND WE CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING THE DIALOGUE AS WE PROCEED TO, UH, TO A COUNCIL.

I JUST CAN'T SAY ENOUGH THAT THIS IS THE LITERALLY THE MOST FULLY DEVELOPED, ROBUST ZONING CASE THAT I'VE EVER HANDLED IN MY CAREER, UH, AND BROUGHT TO THE ZAP COMMISSION.

OKAY.

WE HAVE DINKLER THEN KING, THEN KIELBASA, THEN THOMPSON YOU'RE ON MUTE.

THANKS, MOM.

I'M SORRY.

MADAM CHAIR.

UM, I, UH, APPRECIATE, UM, MR. HARTMAN'S COMMENT, BUT WHEN I'M HEARING FROM A JS AND I GREATLY APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT, UM, YOU'VE BEEN MEETING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE STAFF PARTICULARLY HAS HELD A MEETING JUST LAST WEEK ABOUT DRAINAGE WITH THE IMMEDIATE, UM, NEIGHBORS, UH, AND THE IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORS HAVE SOME STRONG, UM, RIGHTS HERE.

UM, I'M NOT, UM, CONVINCED THAT A DELAY WOULD HURT YOU, UH, FOR TWO WEEKS TO, UH, NAIL DOWN THOSE PARTICULARS AND GIVE COUNSEL A REAL SENSE OF WHERE THE NEIGHBORHOOD STANDS ON THIS ISSUE.

THE OTHER THING I'VE NOTICED IS WHEN I PULLED UP, UH, THE AGENDA TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANY NOTICE OF THE POSTPONEMENT IN THE BACKUP, EVEN THOUGH THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST WAS MADE TIMELY, IT WASN'T, UH, WASN'T PUT UP.

UM, SO I'M REALLY WONDERING IF WE'RE CONSISTENT IN OUR, OUR, OUR PROCESSES, BUT, UM, I'M INCLINED AND WANT TO HEAR FROM MY OTHER COLLEAGUES, BUT I'M INCLINED TO, UH, SUPPORT A POST-MOMENT JUST FOR TWO WEEKS.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER KING.

YES.

THANK YOU, CHAIR.

AND, AND, UH, YES, I, I DO APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT THE, UH, APPLICANTS DEVELOPER HAVE DONE WITH, UH, YOU KNOW, WITH THIS PROJECT.

AND, BUT IT IS PRETTY COMPLICATED WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE ZONING MAP HERE, YOU KNOW, IT'S FAIRLY COMPLICATED WHAT THEY'RE DOING HERE, AND, UH, IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A COMPLICATED LOT TOO.

SO I UNDERSTAND THAT THAT COMPLEXITY MAY NEED MORE TIME TO REALLY UNDERSTAND AND DEAL WITH.

SO, AND THEN WHEN I LOOK AT THAT, YOU KNOW, REALLY THE, THE TWO WEEKS WOULD NOT AFFECT THEIR SCHEDULE WITH COUNCIL, BUT I THINK IT WOULD, WOULD HELP INFORM, UH, THE WORK THAT WE WOULD DO NEXT ON OUR NEXT MEETING ON THIS CASE, IF IT WERE TO BE POSTPONE, IT WOULD BE, I THINK WE COULD, WE WOULD HAVE AN EVEN BETTER CASE THAN WE HAVE.

AND I DO APPRECIATE AGAIN, THAT, UH, THE DEVELOPER AND THE APPLICANT ARE WILLING TO WORK WITH THE NEIGHBORS, LISTEN TO THE NEIGHBORS.

AND IN THIS CASE, I JUST SEE THAT, YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR TWO MORE WEEKS TO, TO GET SOME MORE INPUT, TO, TO MAKE THE PRODUCT TO THE ZONING CASE, EVEN BETTER FOR EVERYBODY.

AND THEN ONCE THIS IS DONE, THIS IS, THIS IS DONE.

WE WON'T BE ABLE TO COME BACK AND FIX ANYTHING AGAIN.

SO I SUPPORT THE TWO WEEK REQUESTS IN THIS CASE, AND I THINK IT'S GOING TO HELP MAKE A BETTER PRODUCT AND, AND, AND HELP MAKE SURE THAT FOLKS HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO GIVE THEIR INPUT IN THE PROCESS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER KIELBASA AND THEN THOMPSON.

UM, I, I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK THAT THE APPLICANT AND THE DEVELOPER HAVE DONE, AND I REALLY LIKED THE IDEA OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND THAT'S ACTUALLY, ONE OF THE REASONS I WOULD BE IN FAVOR OF A POSTPONEMENT IS TO JUST NAIL DOWN MORE DETAILS ON THE MANAGEMENT OF THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

YOU JUST DON'T AUTOMATICALLY JUST SAY, OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE 10% OF OUR HOUSE OR HOUSING BE 80%

[00:30:01]

MFI, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO PARTNER WITH SOMEBODY AND I'VE HAD A PLEASANT EMAIL EXCHANGE WITH THE DEVELOPER AND, UM, ABOUT THAT.

AND THERE ARE SOME OPTIONS FOR THAT.

AND ALSO, BUT I JUST LIKE TO NAIL DOWN SOME OF THESE THINGS.

AND OF COURSE, EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT I LIKE WIN-WINS.

AND TO POSSIBLY EVEN SEE THAT EVERYBODY'S HOLDING HANDS AND SINGING KUMBAYA, AND ALSO WE NEED, UM, IT BE GOOD TO SEE THE RC WRITTEN OUT, UM, THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, AND ALSO FROM WENDY AND I HAD CALLED HER EARLIER TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THIS.

AND IT DOES SEEM LIKE IT'S POSSIBLE FOR BREAKTHROUGH.

SOME ALWAYS GOOD ON THAT.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE HOLDING UP WHEN THIS IS GOING BEFORE COUNCIL.

SO THOSE ARE MY REASONS FOR SUPPORTING A POSTPONEMENT.

AND I DO APPRECIATE THE DEVELOPER WORKING ON DRAINAGE AND ALL THAT TOO.

BUT I KNOW IT'S A, IT, IT DOES SEEM LIKE IT'S, IT'S NOT OUR COOKIE CUTTER CASE.

SO THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

I ACTUALLY LOWERED MY HAND, BUT I CAN, UH, GO AHEAD AND JUST, UM, AND ASK THE APPLICANT TO EXPLAIN TO ME A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THE, OF THE DELAY.

I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED SINCE THE CASE ISN'T COMING BEFORE COUNCIL FOR SUCH A TIME, HOW THIS WOULD BE IMPACTING YOUR CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS THAT YOU MENTIONED.

YEAH, THIS IS MAC MAC AT THE APPLICANT AGAIN.

SO AS IT RELATES TO WHAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS, WE HAVE 90% COMPLETE DRAINAGE PLANS.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT IT IN A SENSE OF WHAT YOU HAD SUBMITTED, A DESIGN CASE I'M TALKING ABOUT IN THE FORM OF A SITE PLAN, MORE, MORE ROBUST RANGE PLANS.

THEN, THEN, THEN WE, WE CAN'T ADVANCE THEM ANY FURTHER THAN THEY ARE.

AND THEY HAVE BEEN, THEY HAVE BEEN REVIEWED AND DISCUSSED WITH DRAINAGE STAFF AND, AND RESIDENTS ON THE PHONE.

SO I WANT, I WANT TO PREFACE WITH WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE CAN ACCOMPLISH OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

I JUST, I, I CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THE FACT THAT THERE HAS BEEN DAILY OPEN DIALOGUE WITH, FOR FORMAL MEETINGS, WITH THESE, WITH THE NEIGHBORHOODS, AS IT RELATES TO THE ISSUES THAT, THAT WE HAVE WITH IT.

WE HAVE TO PET WHERE, BECAUSE OF THE POSTPONEMENT AND BECAUSE OF THE DIFFICULTIES IN MEETING WITH THE NEIGHBOR NEIGHBORHOOD EARLY ON AT THE ONSET, AND THE FACT THAT WE'VE HAD FOUR OF THESE MEETINGS, YOU KNOW, PUSH BACK, BUT HAPPENING, NONETHELESS, WE'RE HAVING DO, WE'RE HAVING TO GO THROUGH MONTHLY EXTENSIONS ON OUR PURCHASE CONTRACT AND THOSE EXTENSIONS COME AT A PRICE.

AND SO WE WOULD BE GOING INTO, WE WOULD BE GOING BEFORE COUNCIL AND ZAP AT DATES THAT, THAT FALL AFTER EXTENSION DATE.

SO WE'LL BE GOING IN BLIND MAKING THESE EXTENSION PAINTER.

AND CAN I ASK, UH, THE OUTCOME OF THE MEETING LAST WEEK OR THE MOST RECENT MEETING? WERE THERE ANY COMMITMENTS MADE TO THE NEIGHBORS AT THAT MEETING OR YEAH.

SAY THAT NO, THE DRAINAGE ITEMS AND THE TRANSPORTATION STATION ITEMS WERE, YOU KNOW, BASICALLY INTRODUCED, UH, IN SOME DETAIL ON THE APRIL 20TH MEETING, WHEN WE AGREED TO THE ONE MONTH POSTPONEMENT AT THAT MEETING, I OFFERED TO SAY, YOU KNOW, BASICALLY HAVE ADDITIONAL DIALOGUE WITH DRAINAGE STAFF PRESENT AS IT IS AS AN IDEA THAT THE DEVELOPER AND I OFFERED, WHICH WE HAD THAT MEETING AND HAD THAT REVIEW ON MAY 10TH.

UH, AGAIN, THE MAY 14TH MEETING WAS NO NEW INFORMATION OTHER THAN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT, BASICALLY.

SO THERE'S BEEN NO NEW INFORMATION PRESENTED THAT THIS NEIGHBORHOOD HAS TO DIGEST IF ANYTHING REALLY WHAT'S TRANSPIRED.

UM, SINCE THAT TIME IS, WE'VE HAD A NUMBER OF FOLKS, YOU KNOW, BASICALLY AGREE TO SUPPORT OUR PROJECT.

SO THEY'RE NOT ON THE PHONE TONIGHT TO ASK FOR SUPPORT AND THAT'S TO HEAR IT TONIGHT.

THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE IT.

OKAY.

I SEE COMMISSIONER RAY, AND THEN WE'LL DO KING KIELBASA.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO I SUPPORT HEARING THIS CASE TONIGHT, UM, WHERE THE LAND USE COMMISSION WE'VE RECEIVED THE INFORMATION TO WEIGH THE CASE.

UM, IT SOUNDS LIKE THE DEVELOPER AND APPLICANT HAVE DONE THEIR DUE DILIGENCE AND REACHING OUT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW.

UM, AND REALLY, WE JUST NEED TO DO THE THING THAT WE'RE HERE TO DO.

IS THAT JUST A BIT, UM, I DON'T THINK THAT WE HAVE TO NECESSARILY GET LIKE A UNIFIED NEIGHBORHOOD VOICE IN ORDER TO HEAR A CASE.

AND IN FACT, YOU KNOW, CASES ARE GOING TO BE CONTENTIOUS.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HEARING THEM.

UM, SO I CAN'T SUPPORT POSTPONEMENT TONIGHT.

I THINK WE JUST NEED TO GO AHEAD WITH THAT

[00:35:01]

VICE CHAIR KIELBASA.

I'LL JUST REITERATE FIRST OFF.

I DIDN'T, I'M SORT OF SURPRISED THAT WE'RE NOT THE FINAL ARBITRARY, BUT THE COUNCIL IS.

AND SO I WAS SURPRISED TO HEAR THE AGENT OR THE DEVELOPER SAY THAT THEY NEEDED TO, THAT THEY'RE THERE.

THEY'VE GOT TO DO THESE PAYMENTS OR WHATEVER.

HE SAID EXACTLY HOW I PUT IT BECAUSE NOTHING HAS BEEN DECIDED YET.

AND IT'S REALLY NOT EVEN US.

WE MAKE A RECOMMENDATION, WE DON'T DECIDE ANYTHING.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE THE JUNE, JULY 29TH IS COUNCIL HEARING IS WHEN YOU ACTUALLY GET YOUR ZONING.

SO IT, I DON'T SEE AND ARE HEARING THIS CASE IN TWO WEEKS.

ISN'T REALLY GOING TO HEAR IT.

I AGREE WITH COMMISSIONER RAY THAT WE'RE HERE TO, UM, MAKE DECISIONS, BUT IT WOULD BE NICE.

AND I THINK IT WOULD BE NICE FOR COUNCIL IF WE CAN JUST HAVE A FEW MORE DEAL DETAILS NAILED DOWN.

AND THEN, UM, AND IT WOULD PROBABLY, I THINK RESULT IN A, MAYBE A MORE FAVORABLE VOTE TOWARDS ON THIS, BUT IF IT'S, IF IT'S SORT OF CONTENTIOUS NOW, THEN IT'S, IT'S JUST NOT GOING TO SERVE ANYBODY WELL, BUT IF THINGS, MORE THINGS ARE WORKED OUT, I THINK IT SERVES EVERYBODY WELL.

AND SO THAT'S WHY I'M SUPPORTING THE POSTPONEMENT.

OH, YOU'RE ON MUTE.

SORRY.

I WANT TO ASK THE APPLICANT IF, YOU KNOW, LIKE WHAT COLOR WAS IT, COMMISSIONER CABALS JUST SAID, IF IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE TO THEM, UM, IT, IT LIKE, YOU KNOW, THE, THE TIME BETWEEN ZAP AND COUNCIL, UH, YOU KNOW, LIKE THE PAYMENTS, IF THAT MAKES, IF ZAP APPROVING, IT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF THOSE PAYMENTS OR ANY OTHER FACTORS THAT THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

UM, IF HAVING MORE TIME BETWEEN COUNCIL AND, UH, ZAP IS BENEFICIAL IN ANY WAY, OR IF IT, UH, IT'S REALLY ABOUT THE COUNCIL APPROVING, DOES THAT, DOES THAT VOTE? AND DOES THAT VOTE INFORMS US OF OUR DECISION WHEN WE'RE REQUIRED TO MAKE EXTENSION PAYMENTS? THAT'S WHAT THAT'S, THAT'S, THAT'S WHAT COMES FROM THIS.

AS WE HAVE THE DIALOGUE AT ZAP THAT WE'VE HAD WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD, UM, ALREADY, AND, AND, AND, AND WE GET TO TAKE FROM THAT WE LEARNED FROM ZAP AND, AND ARE ABLE TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION WITH OUR, WITH OUR EXTENSION PAYMENTS.

AND I JUST ADD THAT THE, YOU KNOW, I UNDERSTAND AND, AND ACKNOWLEDGE FULLY THAT THE ULTIMATE DECISION RESTS WITH CITY COUNCIL.

AND SO THESE, THESE ARE A COUPLE OF THESE EXTENSIONS WEREN'T INEVITABILITY, BUT THE EXTENT OF THEM, UH, WERE NOT.

AND THEY'RE THE RESULT OF IT BEING UNDERSTANDABLY DIFFICULT TO GET ALL OF THE PARTIES IN THE ROOM AT THE, UH, THE, UH, OVER THE NUMBER OF TIMES THAT WE'VE ATTEMPTED, I'M STILL PLEASED.

AND, AND, AND DELIGHTED TO SAY THAT WE'VE MET FOUR TIMES, ESPECIALLY SINCE TWO OF THOSE INCLUDED STAFF, UM, ONE WITH SPECIFIC DEPARTMENTAL STAFF, BUT, YOU KNOW, IT'S ALL THE SAME IT'S THESE THESE EFFORTS HAVE, HAVE, HAVE, HAVE, HAS TAKEN US A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TIME ALREADY NEGATIVE TO THAT, WHERE WE SIT TODAY, CONTRACTUALLY POSITIVE TO THAT, HOW FULLY BAKED WE ARE IN TERMS OF OUR DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, RIGHT? THE, OH, I'M SORRY.

THAT'S ALWAYS MADE IT, BUT I WILL SAY THAT I DON'T FEEL SUPPORT PLUS MINE AT THIS POINT.

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE THOROUGH, LIKE LOOKING AT THE CASE, UH, IT'S LOOKS VERY THOROUGHLY, CONSIDERED ALREADY FAR MORE THOROUGHLY CONSIDERED THE MOST THINGS THAT COME BEFORE US.

AND, UH, YOU KNOW, I THINK IF THAT, I THINK IF THERE WAS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT, UH, WITH, UH, THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OPPOSED AND THE APPLICANT THAT THE APPLICANT WOULD NOT BE ASKING FOR, IT WOULD BE ABLE TO THEM IN A CERTAIN SITUATION.

SO, UM, I I'M JUST INCLINED TO, YOU KNOW, IT SEEMS LIKE THEY'VE DONE FAR MORE THAN MOST, ALMOST ANY OTHER CASE THAT I'VE HEARD IN TERMS OR MEETING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

SO I DON'T SEE A REASON TO POSTPONE IT AT THIS POINT ELSE HAVE FEEDBACK.

I DON'T SEE ANY MORE HANDS RAISED.

I SEE, UM, OCEAN, OR LET ME GUESS, I MAKE SURE , BUT ALL RIGHT.

I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO, TO, UM, HEAR THE CASE TONIGHT.

OKAY.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

GO AHEAD.

SURE.

UH, THE, THE, THE MOTION WAS EFFECTIVELY TWO KNOTS.

[00:40:01]

WHAT THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST IS THAT, THAT IS THAT THE, OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

UM, COMMISSIONER DINKLER, UM, I'M GOING TO MOVE A SUBSTITUTE TO POSTPONE UNTIL JUNE 1ST, UM, EVEN WITH THE CONTRACT EXTENSIONS, WHICH I THINK GIVEN THE NEED FOR MORE APARTMENTS, I SUSPECT THE APPLICANT WILL HAVE NO ISSUE GETTING THEM.

AND THE CASE STILL IS HEARD, UH, ON, UM, JULY 23RD.

AND FRANKLY, I WOULD THINK HE WOULD WANT TO HAVE THE IMMEDIATE, HIS MONEY AT THOSE IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORS SUPPORT AS HE CAN GET, UH, BECAUSE I THINK THAT COULD AFFECT HIS CONTRACT EXTENSIONS TOO.

SO I MOVE THAT.

WE GRANT THE POSTPONEMENT UNTIL, UM, JUNE 1ST, UM, THAT CONTRACT EXTENSION, SORRY, POSTPONEMENT, UH, SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER KING.

OR DID YOU ALSO HAVE A COMMENT? OKAY.

NO, I'M SECONDING THAT MOTION, THAT SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

THANK YOU.

SO ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THIS SUBSTITUTE MOTION, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED TO THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

OKAY.

AND I'M ABSTAINING BECAUSE I CAN'T DECIDE.

SORRY.

SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THAT MEANS WE'RE GOING TO HEAR THE CASE, I BELIEVE.

OKAY.

WELL NOW YOU HAVE TO GO BACK.

WE HAVE ANOTHER MOTION ON THE FLOOR AND WE'LL VOTE ON THE SECOND MOTION, WHICH IS TO NOT POSTPONE.

UM, SO ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION TO CLEAR THE CASE THIS EVENING TO NOT POSTPONE THE CASE, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND AND THAT'S, AND THEN, UH, THOSE ARE POSTED EMOTION.

SORRY FOR LAUGHING.

I'M GOING TO ABSTAIN AGAIN.

SO IT'S THE OPPOSITE, RIGHT? AND WHAT DO WE DO? DO WE, WE HEAR IT.

OKAY.

YES.

WELL, THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME SPEAK.

YES.

YOU'RE HERE THE CASE TONIGHT.

OKAY, GREAT.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HEAR IT RIGHT NOW.

HOW THIS WORKS CHAIR COMMISSION LAYS ON INVERT.

IF HE WANTS YOU TO GET IT BACK IN ORDER, YOU CAN HEAR B2 AND THEN COME BACK TO B3.

YEAH.

OKAY.

LET'S DO THAT THEN.

SO I WILL PASS THE FIGURATIVE BALL

[B2. Zoning and Rezoning: C814-04-0187.02.SH - Goodnight Ranch PUD - 2nd Amendment; District 2]

OVER TO SHANNON OR VICE CHAIR.

TABATHA.

YES.

OH, COMMISSIONER BRACE.

YEAH.

DON'T WE DO.

WE USUALLY HEAR ALL THE PUBLIC TESTIMONY FIRST BEFORE CONSIDERING ANY CASES.

YES.

SO USUALLY IT'S THE STAFF PRESENTATION AND THEN THE APP BLOOD KIN AND THEN, AND THEN, AND THEN AGAINST, AND THEN REBUTTAL THINKING OF COUNCIL MEETINGS.

I'M SORRY, GO AHEAD.

GOOD EVENING.

MY NAME IS WENDY RHODES WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

THIS IS THE GOOD NIGHT RANCH PUD AMENDMENT.

IT IS THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN BOUNDED BY KNUCKLES CROSSING TO THE NORTH VERTEX BOULEVARD AND AN AISD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

THAT'S OPERATIONAL AND A MIDDLE SCHOOL.

THAT'S UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

THERE IS OLD LOCKHART ROAD TO THE SOUTH AND OLD HART LOAD LOCKHART ROAD IN SOUTH FLORIDA VALLEY ROAD TO THE WET.

UH, THERE IS A RECENTLY CONSTRUCTED SEGMENT OF EAST SLAUGHTER LANE THAT BISECTS THIS PROPERTY AND CONTINUES TO FAXED AND ROAD GOOD NET RANCH.

PUD IS A MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT THAT PROVIDES A RANGE OF RESIDENTIAL COMMERCIAL AND CIVIC USES AND OPEN SPACE INTO AN INTEGRATED, INTO A PLANNED COMMUNITY.

UH, DEVELOPMENT ON THE NORTH SIDE OF SLAUGHTER LANE INCLUDES RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISIONS APARTMENTS, THE SCHOOLS AND AMENITIES CENTER, PARKS AND PAWNS.

UH, THE MAJORITY OF LAND SOUTH OF SLAUGHTER LANE IS UNDEVELOPED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF APARTMENTS THAT ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF SLAUGHTER AND OLD LOCKHART ROAD.

UH, JUST FOR CONTEXT, THE OLD CREEK, THE ONION METRO PARK, AND IT'S SINGLE FAMILY.

RESIDENTIAL IS TO THE NORTH OF THIS.

THE PUD HAS FIVE RESIDENTS, FIVE DEVELOPMENT AREAS.

THESE ARE THE NEIGHBORHOOD MIXED USE AREA.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD MIXED USE VERTICAL AREA, UH, THE MIXED RESIDENTIAL AREA, THE PARK DISTRICT, AND OPEN SPACE.

UH, THIS PARTICULAR PUD AMENDMENT COVERS THE ENTIRE ORIGINAL PUD PLUS A 6.6 ACRE PROPERTY THAT IS OWNED ISF

[00:45:01]

TWO ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF SLAUGHTER LANE THAT IS NOW OWNED BY THE APPLICANT.

AND THIS PUD AMENDMENT WOULD INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RESIDENTIAL UNITS, UH, FROM APPROXIMATELY 3,500 TO APPROXIMATELY 6,300 AND WILL ALLOW FOR 635,000 SQUARE FEET OF COMMERCIAL RETAIL AND OFFICE USES.

AND IT WOULD PROVIDE FOR EIGHT 64 ACRE, UH, AISD SITE AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER, WHICH IS INTENDED FOR A HIGH SCHOOL.

THE AMOUNT OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE OPEN SPACE HAS INCREASED TO 129 ACRES.

AND THIS PD ALSO AMENDMENT ALSO IDENTIFIES A FIRE STATION SITE, UH, ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE PD.

IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE 15,000 SQUARE FEET OF COMMERCIAL, UH, CIVIC USES THAT WERE APPROVED WHEN THIS, UH, PD WAS ORIGINALLY ADOPTED IN 2006.

UH, THIS CASE HAS ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THE, UH, PARKS BOARD, WHICH RECOMMENDED IT AS WELL AS THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION.

MORE RECENTLY IN JANUARY, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, IT WILL PROVIDE A MINIMUM OF 129 ACRES OF OPEN SPACE.

IT WILL LIMIT IMPERVIOUS COVER TO 67% OF THE GROSS SIDE AREA.

IT WILL RECONSTRUCT THAT CRITICAL WATER QUALITY ZONE AS PART OF THE SUBDIVISION CONSTRUCTION PLAN AND RESTORE CREEK AND WETLAND BUFFERS.

UH, SO THE INQUIRY, THE AMENDMENT INCREASES THE NUMBER OF HOUSING UNITS AND COMMERCIAL RETAIL AND OFFICE SQUARE FOOTAGE WITHIN THE PUD.

IT PROVIDES A GREATER RANGE OF HOUSING CHOICES AND SUPPORT SERVICES FOR THE COMMUNITY AND RESULTS IN MORE COMPACT DEVELOPMENT THAT WAS ORIGINALLY APPROVED.

UH, THE DENSITY WILL BE THAT IS ADDED HERE WILL BE OFFSET BY PUBLIC AND PRIVATE OPEN SPACE AREAS.

UH, MOST OF THE IMPACTS WILL BE TO THE UNDEVELOPED LAND ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF SLAUGHTER LANE.

AND, UH, THIS PD ALSO SUPPORTS AFFORDABLE HOUSING INITIATIVES BY INCLUDING NEW HOUSING TYPES, AS WELL AS REVISED DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS AND A REVISED STREET AND SITE LAYOUT DOES PROVIDE A NEW DENSER WALKABLE AREA ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF SLAUGHTER LANE.

UH, A TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS WAS COMPLETED FOR THIS PUD AMENDMENT AND IT PROVIDES IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED TO ACCOMMODATE THE ADDITIONAL DENSITY, INCLUDING FUNDING FOR A TRAFFIC SIGNAL.

TURNING LANE CONSTRUCTION ALWAYS STOPPED INSTALLATION A SIDEWALK AND INTERSECTION CAPACITY IMPROVEMENTS.

SO THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST FOR A PUD AMENDMENT AS OUTLINED IN THE ATTACHED EXHIBITS.

AND, UH, AS MENTIONED EARLIER, UH, THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION DID LOOK AT THIS AND HAD AN ADDITIONAL CONDITION REGARDING DARK SKIES, AND THAT HAS ALSO BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE APPLICANT'S DESIGN GUIDELINES.

THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

AND I HAVE A QUESTION FOR WENDY AND FOR THE, FOR THE COMMISSION.

UM, I DIDN'T, I WA W DID ANY COMMISSIONER PULLED THIS CASE? AND I ASKED THAT BECAUSE I DON'T SEE ANY SPEAKER SIGNED UP AGAINST, AND I DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING IN THE BACKUP OR ANYTHING ABOUT ANY QUESTIONS.

SO I WAS JUST WONDERING, AND MAYBE WENDY OR ANDREW, OR ANY COMMISSIONER WHO PULLED IT, I MEAN, IT'S FINE IF YOU PULLED IT.

I WAS JUST WONDERING, OKAY.

I, THIS IS WHEN THE, AGAIN, I DID RECEIVE, UM, SOME WRITTEN OPPOSITION AND THAT HAS BEEN POSTED TO THE WEBSITE.

I DID INVITE THE, UH, SPEAKERS WHO ARE THE, UH, THE PERSONS WHO CORRESPONDED WITH ME TO THE MEETING AND I GUESS WAS UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT THEY WOULD REGISTER TO SPEAK.

OKAY.

OH, OKAY.

THANKS.

UH, COMMISSIONER KING.

YES.

VICE-CHAIR.

I JUST, I DO HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS.

I KNOW WE'RE NOT NECESSARILY THERE YET, BUT I JUST WANTED TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.

YES, YES.

I DO HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS CASE.

OKAY, GREAT.

I WAS JUST WONDERING, OKAY, THANKS.

OKAY.

AND THANK YOU, WENDY, FOR THE PRESENTATION AND ASK AND ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS.

AND WE DO, WE HAVE SPEAKERS SIGNED UP AND IT IS, UM, THE APPLICANT OR THE APPLICANT'S AGENT.

AND I BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE ALICE GLASGOW, CHAIR, COMMISSION LIAISON, AND FOR A ROLE HERE FOR MS. GLIP GROUP FOR SIX MINUTES.

OKAY, THANKS.

HELLO.

MY NAME IS MYRA GAP, AND I'M REALLY GOING TO SPEAK ON BEHALF OF ALEC TODAY.

I, UH, I AM WITH AUSTIN, GOODNIGHT RANCH.

WE ARE THE APPLICANT AND IN PARTNERSHIP WITH A GOOD

[00:50:01]

NIGHT OF FAMILY, WE ARE REQUESTING CHANGES TO THE GOOD NIGHT PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT.

THE INTENT IS TO UPDATE AND IMPROVE THE ORDINANCE TO BETTER SERVE.

AUSTIN NEEDS AS AUNT WENDY STATED, I'M HOPING TO DETAIL HOW WE ARE GOING TO ACCOMPLISH THIS THROUGH INCREASING AUSTIN'S HOUSING, SUPPLY NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICES AND EMPLOYMENT OPTIONS.

WHILE KEEPING IN MIND THE IMPORTANCE OF TRANSPORTATION, PARKLAND, THAT'S THE ENVIRONMENT AND EDUCATION COUNCIL ADOPTED THE IMAGINATIVE PLAN TO FISCALLY AND SUSTAINABLY GUIDE THE GROWTH OF AUSTIN.

THE CHANGES WE ARE PROPOSING ARE ALIGNED WITH THE IMAGINE AUSTIN PLAN.

THE IMAGINE, HONESTLY, VISION STATEMENTS DESCRIBES THAT OUR CITY WILL BE A CITY OF COMPLETE COMMUNITIES THAT IS NATURAL AND SUSTAINABLE, PROSPEROUS, LIVABLE, MOBILE, INTERCONNECTED, EDUCATED, CREATIVE, AND THAT VALUES AND RESPECTS.

ALL AUSTINITES IN SHORT STAFF IS SUMMARIZED THAT OUR PROPOSED CHANGES ALLOW FOR A BALANCED, MIXED USE NORTH AND SOUTH OF SLAUGHTER LANE.

ADDITIONALLY, THESE CHANGES WILL CREATE A COMMUNITY THAT PROMOTES A LIVE WORK, PLAY ENVIRONMENT, WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE POLICY TO MOVE PROMOTES DEVELOPMENT AND COMPACT CENTERS OR ALONG CORRIDORS THAT ARE CONNECTED BY ROADS AND TRANSIT, WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE WALKING BICYCLING AND TO REDUCE HEALTHCARE HOUSING AND TRANSPORTATION COSTS AS A COMPARISON, MUELLER AND GOODNIGHT ARE APPROXIMATELY 700 ACRES.

AND YET MUELLER HAS A HIGHER RESIDENTIAL ALLOWANCE OF 7,790 HOMES AND 5.8 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF COMMERCIAL SPACE.

WE ARE PROPOSING TO PROVIDE LESS DENSITY AT 6,308 HOMES AND MUCH LESS COMMERCIAL SPACE, BUT A BROAD DIVERSIFICATION OF RENTAL AND OWNERSHIP OPTIONS.

THIS DIVERSIFICATION ALLOWS FOR A RANGE OF PRICE POINTS WITHIN AN AREA THAT IS LOCATED FIVE MILES FROM THE AIRPORT, AND LESS THAN 10 MILES FROM DOWNTOWN IN 2018.

OUR C ELKO STUDIED IN AUSTIN.

THAT'S 36% OF ALL JOBS ARE LOCATED WITHIN A FIVE MILE WITHIN FIVE MILES OF THE CITY CENTER.

43 OF ALL OFFICE JOBS ARE LOCATED WITHIN THE FIVE MILES, BUT THESE JOBS ARE CONCENTRATED IN LESS THAN 2% OF THE LAND AND FIVE COUNTY METRO AREA.

MEANING EMPLOYMENT IS NOT CLOSE TO WHERE WE LIVE AND STRAINING OFTEN AUSTIN'S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, NO WONDER AUSTIN BOARD OF REALTORS STATES THAT THE MEDIAN HOME PRICE WITHIN THE CITY IS UP 24.3% TO 491, $191,000 WAS ONLY A THREE WEEKS HOUSING SUPPLY.

WE NEED HOUSING IN AUSTIN.

GOOD LIGHT GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADD HOUSING WITH THE CO WITHIN THE COURT AT A REASONABLE PRICE TO HELP LEVEL OFF THE LOGARITHMIC CURVE OF ESCALATING HOME PRICES DUE TO HIGH SINGLE FAMILY, HOME PRICES AND WAGES REMAINING, RELATIVELY FLAT.

WE ARE PROJECTING THAT 70 TO 80% OF OUR FUTURE HOUSEHOLDS WILL RENT INCREASING THE NUMBER AND TYPE OF HOUSING IS ONE TOOL TO HELP STABILIZE INCREASING HOUSING COSTS.

THIS COMBINED WITH CREATING A COMPACT AND COMPLETE COMMUNITY SHOULD ALLOW FOR ADDITIONAL HOUSING WITH AN INCREASE TO INCREASE TO LAND INCREASED WITHOUT INCREASING IMPERVIOUS COVER.

IN ADDITION TO LOOKING AT THE SUPPLY SIDE, GOODNIGHT HAS BEEN A VOLUNTEER PARTICIPANT IN THE SMART HOUSING PROGRAM TODAY.

THE COMMUNITY HAS FAMILY OR USE IT AGE IN AGE RESTRICTED RENTAL OPTIONS FOR THOSE EARNING BETWEEN 65 TO 80% OF OUR MSI, OUR AMENDMENT PROPOSES TO EXTEND THAT AFFORDABILITY TO HOME OWNERSHIP, LOOKING AT EMPLOYMENT, WE ARE PROPOSING TO INCREASE COMMERCIAL RETAIL AND APPOINTMENT AND CIVIC SPACE TO 635,000 SQUARE FEET BY ADDING EMPLOYMENT CAMPUS ADJACENT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICES AND HOUSING.

WE PROMOTE FOLKS TO BECOME LESS AUTO CENTRIC AND MORE PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED, THUS REDUCING THE PRESSURE ON AUSTIN ROADS, WHICH LEADS US TO TRANSPORTATION.

THE PUT ALREADY ADDRESSES A MULTIMODAL AND INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM.

THESE ASSETS HAVE BEEN RE-IMAGINED TO CREATE A HIGHER FUNCTIONING TRANSPORTATION PLAN.

THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY A NEW STREET SECTION, MORE PUBLIC TRAILS, REVISED STREET LAYOUTS WITH MORE CONNECTIONS AND SIGNIFICANT MITIGATED MITIGATED MEASURES, SUCH AS TRAFFIC SIGNALS AND DEDICATED TURNING LANES FOR PARK LINES.

WE ARE PROPOSING AN INCREASE TO MORE THAN 120 ACRES OF PUBLIC OPEN SPACE IN PARKLAND.

IN 2013, THE BILL WAS APPROVED BY THE HOUSE LEGISLATOR THAT CREATED THE ONION CREEK METRO PARK DISTRICT.

THE INTENTS OF THIS DEBT TAXING DISTRICT IS TO CREATE A QUALITY PUBLIC OPEN SPACE, STREETSCAPES AND PARKLAND.

THAT IS WELL-MAINTAINED THE AD VALOREM TAX GENERATED WITHIN GOODNIGHT PROVIDES OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE AND FUNDING TO SUPPORT THE CITY OWNED 555 ACRE METROPOLITAN PARK AND THE PUBLIC SPACE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY.

THE DISTRICT WILL ULTIMATELY GENERATE MILLIONS OF OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE DOLLARS FOR PUBLIC SPACE TO NURTURE THE ENVIRONMENT.

WE HAVE WORKED CLOSELY WITH STAFF TO PRESERVE OPEN SPACE, WATER QUALITY CREATED IN THE COMMUNITY.

THIS INCLUDES REGIONAL WATER QUALITY EXTENSION FACILITIES.

IN ADDITION, A THOUGHTFUL PLAN WAS CONCEIVED TO ENHANCE THE REMAINDER OF THE COMMUNITY IN LINE WITH CURRENT CODE.

THE LAND PLAN WAS REDESIGNED TO PRESERVE AREAS WITH

[00:55:01]

SIGNIFICANT TOPOGRAPHY, MEANING AREAS ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR FULL DEVELOPMENT ARE NOW PRESERVED HILLTOPS FOR ALL TO ENJOY THIS PRESERVATION SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCES EARTH DISTURBANCE WHILE RETAINING QUALITY SETBACKS FROM DRAINAGE RES GREAT EDUCATION.

GOODNIGHT HAS BECOME HOME TO THREE AISD SCHOOL SITES.

OVER 113 ACRES ARE DEDICATED TO PUBLIC EDUCATION AT THE ELEMENTARY INTERMEDIATE AND HIGH SCHOOL LEVELS.

THESE IMPROVEMENTS WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO WALK TO ALL THREE LEVELS OF EDUCATION FURTHER, AND EDUCATION FUND HAS BEEN CREATED TO HELP SUPPORT EDUCATIONAL NEEDS SUCH AS TUTORING AND ENHANCED CLASSROOM SPACE OR EQUIPMENT FOR THE GOOD NIGHT RESIDENTS IN THE END, THE COMMON THEME FOR ALL THE FOLKS THAT HAVE WORKED ON THIS PROPOSAL OVER THE LAST SIX YEARS IS A BELIEF THAT YOU SHOULD LEAVE IT BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT.

THIS IS THE GOOD NIGHT STORY.

WE HOPE THE COMMISSION WILL RECOMMEND THESE CHANGES FOR APPROVAL AS WE HAVE FULL STAFF.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, NEXT, SO IS MS. GLASGOW GOING TO SPEAK AND IF NOT, WE, UM, I CAN'T BELIEVE I SAID THAT MS. GLASGOW, UM, ALICE I'M HERE.

I'M ON STANDBY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.

UM, MYRA GAP JUST PRESENTED EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, AND WE'RE HERE TO HELP ANSWER THE QUESTION.

OKAY, GREAT.

THANKS.

AND THEN IS FOR REESE, UH, BOOSHIE, UM, IS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK.

AND ARE YOU THERE AND DO YOU WISH TO STILL SPEAK AND IF SO, YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

YES.

HELLO.

MY NAME IS FERRIS BOOSHIE.

I'M WITH, UH, LAND UP CONSULTING OR LDC WHERE THE CIVIL ENGINEER ON THE PROJECT AND I AM, UH, UH, FOR THIS PROJECT AND WANTED TO MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT THE COMMISSION MIGHT HAVE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE STEVEN SPEARS TO ASSIGN UP TO SPEAK AND YOU WILL ALSO HAVE IN FAVOR AND YOU WILL ALSO HAVE THREE MINUTES.

AND THEN NEXT IS KATHY MILLER.

GOOD EVENING.

MY NAME'S STEVEN SPHERES.

UH, I LIVE AT 4,001 CAMACHO STREET, UH, IN AUSTIN.

UM, I'M THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PLANNER AND AN INDUCTED NATIONAL FELLOW AND TO THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS.

I'M SPEAKING TONIGHT IN FAVOR OF THE GOODNIGHT RANCH, PUD AMENDMENT.

UH, AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, LAST YEAR, OUR METROPOLITAN AREA GREW OVER 180 PEOPLE PER DAY.

UM, AND TO ECHO WHAT, UH, MYRA HAD BRIEFLY MENTIONED, UM, APPROXIMATELY A THIRD OF OUR JOBS OR OF THE ENTIRE METROPOLITAN AREA ARE LOCATED WITHIN FIVE MILES OF DOWNTOWN AUSTIN.

AND SO THIS AMENDMENT, UH, PROVIDES SIGNIFICANTLY MORE HOUSING OPTIONS AT A VARIETY OF ATTAINABLE AND COM LEVELS, UH, AND ALSO NEAR TRANSIT.

SO THAT IN MIND, I'M SPEAKING IN FAVOR OF THE PDM AND THE SEAT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN KATHY MILLER, ARE YOU THERE? AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

OKAY.

MS. MILLER, IF YOU'LL SELECT STAR SIX, IF YOU'RE WE HEARD YOU PLEASED HAPPY SMITH.

I'M NOT SURE IF WE HAD A NAME CHANGE NEXT UP, BUT I'M THE TRAFFIC ENGINEER.

I DID SIGN UP IN FAVOR OF THE PROJECT ANSWER QUESTION.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND KATHY SMITH.

OKAY.

THANKS.

AND I BELIEVE THAT IS ALL THE PEOPLE SIGNED UP AND SO WE CAN HAVE A MOTION CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND, UM, AND DO WHAT WE WANT.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER DINKLER OKAY.

THERE WE GO.

I MOVED TO CLOSE THE HEARING.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE IN A SECOND FROM COMMISSIONER OR KOSTA, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF CLOSING THE PUBLIC HEARING, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

[01:00:01]

IT IS UNANIMOUS.

AND SO THE MOTION PASSES AND NOW, UM, IF YOU WANT TO HIT THE LITTLE ICON TO RAISE YOUR HANDS, OH, COMMISSIONER KING.

I WILL GO TO YOU FIRST SINCE, UM, WE HAD ALREADY ASCERTAINED THAT YOU HAD SOME QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

UH, YES, I DID HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS.

UM, AND, UH, MY QUESTIONS ARE GOING TO BE ABOUT THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WHICH I'M VERY HAPPY TO HEAR IS A COMPONENT OF THIS.

AND, UH, BUT I WAS TRYING TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

SO I WONDER IF THE, UH, APPLICANT COULD, COULD, UH, OR DEVELOPER COULD PLEASE, UH, LET ME KNOW THE TOTAL NUMBER OF RESOLUTE RESIDENTIAL UNITS FOR RENT BEFORE THE AMENDMENT AND AFTER THE AMENDMENT AND THE TOTAL NUMBER OF RESIDENTIAL UNITS FOR SALE BEFORE THE AMENDMENT AND AFTER THE AMENDMENT, IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO DETERMINE THESE, THESE DIFF THESE NUMBERS, UH, WITH THE DATA AND THE BACKUP.

AND SO I'M JUST TRYING TO GET AN, BECAUSE ONE OF THE COMMENTS WAS THAT, UH, I BELIEVE THAT THERE HAVE BEEN THREE UNITS TOTAL THAT HAVE BEEN, THAT HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE FOR, UH, FAMILIES AREN'T YET BETWEEN 65 AND 80% MEDIAN, FAMILY INCOME, THREE RENTAL UNITS.

AND SO I APPRECIATE THAT THERE ARE THREE, BUT WHEN I SEE THREE AGAINST NUMBERS OF, YOU KNOW, 2,500 UNITS OR 3,500, WHATEVER THE TOTAL NUMBER IS GOING TO BE, I NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT IN THE CONTEXT.

SO WHAT I REALLY LOOKING FOR IS THE TOTAL NUMBER OF UNITS THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE, UH, FOR RENT BEFORE AND AFTER THE AMENDMENT, THAT PULL NUMBER OF UNITS THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE BEFORE AND AFTER THE AMENDMENT AMENDMENT.

AND HOW MANY OF THOSE RENTAL AND, UH, AND, AND FOR SALE UNITS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR, UH, LOW-INCOME FAMILIES EARNING 65%, UH, 60% OF THE MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME OR BELOW.

AND THE REASON I'M ASKING THIS IS IF YOU LOOK AT THE CENSUS TRACK AROUND THIS AREA HERE, THE FAMILIES THAT LIVE THERE, 80% MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME, IS NOT GOING TO SERVE THOSE FAMILIES THAT ARE THERE.

NOW, IT WILL NOT SERVE THEM.

AND SO I, AND SO I, I, IN A WAY, I'M GLAD TO HEAR ABOUT THIS AFFORDABILITY AND BRINGING AFFORDABILITY IN, BUT WE NEED TO GET THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE, OF THE CONTEXT OF THAT AFFORDABILITY.

IT, THE, IF YOU LOOK AT 80% MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME, AS, AS THE THRESHOLD, OR EVEN 65%, THAT'S GOING TO LEAVE OUT MOST OF THE BLACK AND LATINO FAMILIES IN AUSTIN, THEY WILL NOT, THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD EVEN 65% MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME.

AND SO I WANT TO UNDERSTAND HOW THAT PROJECT, HOW THIS AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS GOING TO HELP THE FAMILIES THAT LIVE IN THAT IMMEDIATE AREA AND HELP LOW AND VERY LOW INCOME FAMILIES.

I I'M, I'M A LITTLE FRUSTRATED THAT I CAN'T GET THAT KIND OF INFORMATION, DESPITE ALL THE BACKUP THAT'S AVAILABLE ON THIS CASE.

AND, AND, AND, AND, YOU KNOW, AS I UNDERSTAND THAT THE, THAT THE SMART HOUSING PROGRAM IS GOING TO BE UTILIZED.

SO THE OTHER ONE OTHER QUESTION I HAVE IS AS HOW MANY OF THOSE UNITS ARE GOING TO BE AVAILABLE, ARE GOING TO UTILIZE THE, THE INCOME RESTRICTED UNITS ARE GOING TO UTILIZE LOW-INCOME HOUSING TAX CREDIT FINANCING.

SO THOSE ARE MY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER KING, AND WHO WOULD BE ABLE TO ON THE, UH, ON THE APPLICANT SIDE TO ANSWER THAT, HELLO, THIS IS MY RIGHT DEATH AND APPLICANT, UH, DEVELOPER OF AUSTIN, GOODNIGHT RANCH.

UH, I'M HOPING THAT I CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

SO TODAY THERE'S ABOUT THREE 1300 RESIDENTIAL UNITS THAT EXIST IN THE NORTH SIDE OF GOODNIGHT RANCH.

THERE ARE THREE HOUSING, UH, FOR RENT, UH, FOR, UH, EXISTING OR ONE'S UNDER CONSTRUCTION, BUT TWO EXISTING, UH, UH, FOR RENT, UH, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UH, PROJECTS.

ONE HAS 304, UH, RESIDENTIAL UNITS, AND THOSE ARE AVAILABLE TO 65% OF THE MFI.

AND THEN ONE IS AGE RESTRICTED AND HAS 174 AT VARIOUS INCOMES FROM 30% OF THE MFI GOING UP.

AND THOSE ARE OUR RENTAL ONE.

THERE IS ANOTHER PROJECT CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION FROM LDG CALLED MOONS, UM, MOONLIGHT GARDENS.

AND THAT WILL HAVE 294 UNITS.

AND THAT'S 80% OF THE MSI.

UH, WHAT WE, UH, WORKED OUT WITH NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSING, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT WAS TO LOOK AT OWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.

AND SO BASED ON THEIR RECOMMENDATION, THE, UH, CHANGE THAT WE'LL BE HAVING HERE IS THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE ADDING OWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AT 92 UNITS OF, UH, OF OWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.

AND THAT WILL OCCUR ON THE SOUTH SIDE.

[01:05:01]

LET ME SHARE WITH YOU THOUGH THAT OUR PRICE POINTS IN AUSTIN ARE NOT AUSTIN'S PRICE.

OUR PRICE POINTS IN GOODNIGHT, RANCH ARE NOT NECESSARILY THE PRICE POINTS AND WHAT WE'RE EXPERIENCING IN THE REST OF AUSTIN OWNERSHIP.

WITHIN THE NORTH SIDE, YOU COULD GET INTO A HOME OWNERSHIP AT A PRICE OF TWO 20 NOWHERE IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS.

COULD YOU OWN A HOME FOR $220,000? OUR PRICE POINTS GO FROM TWO 20 TO TWO, UH, THE BUILDERS TO, TO THE, UH, MID TO HIGH THREE HUNDREDS AND A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT COMPONENTS.

AND SO THE, HOW WE'RE, WE'RE REALLY HITTING A MAJORITY OF THE MISSING MIDDLE, UH, WITH THIS
