WE'RE GOING

[00:00:01]

TO, UH, GET STARTED.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

SO REALLY NICE TO HAVE EVERYBODY IN PERSON.

AND IT'S A GREAT DAY WHEN WE CAN SAFELY CONVENE HERE IN KUDOS TO ALL THOSE ACROSS AMERICA WHO GOT IT.

GOT US TO THIS POINT.

OUR TIME IS 1215, AND I'M EXTREMELY HAPPY TO CALL THIS IN-PERSON MEETING TO ORDER OUR FIRST AGENDA

[I. Public Comment (Part 1 of 2)]

ITEM.

TODAY IS PUBLIC COMMENT.

I UNDERSTAND WE HAVE FOUR PEOPLE WHO HAVE SIGNED UP TO PROVIDE COMMENTS TODAY AND EACH HAS ELECTED TO JOIN US VIA TELEPHONE.

UM, WHEN I CALL YOUR NAME, PLEASE UNMUTE YOURSELF AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK.

UH, BEAR WITH ME, DEAL WITH TECHNICAL ISSUES RELATED TO OUR DOING THIS BOTH IN PERSON AND VIA TELEPHONE IN ZOOM.

WE'RE GETTING FEEDBACK VERY WELL.

OUR FIRST, UH, PUBLIC COMMENT IS FROM, UH, MS. ZENOBIA, JOSEPH, MS. JOSEPH, ARE YOU WITH US? MS. JOSEPH, ARE YOU ON THE LINE? THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR MEMBERS, UM, AS AN OPIATE JOSEPH, MY COMMENTS ARE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO TITLE SIX OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964, AS THEY HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST.

I JUST WISH TO CALL TO YOUR ATTENTION SPECIFICALLY, AN EMAIL THAT I SENT TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE AND WHILE HOUSE BILL THREE EIGHT NINE THREE, WHICH IS THE CAPITAL METRO TUNNEL.

SUBSURFACE BILL IS NOT IN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE.

SENATOR ECKART.

THE SPONSOR FOR REPRESENTATIVE HANNAH HOSA IS IN THAT COMMITTEE.

SO I SENT MY COMMENTS TO MARISSA DOT PRYOR, UNDERSCORE S C AT SENNETT, TEXAS.GOV.

AND SPECIFICALLY I SAID, DISPARATE IMPACT FINDINGS.

AND I WENT ON TO SAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2017.

I INFORMED THEM ABOUT CAPITAL METRO SERVICE, EQUITY ANALYSIS, FINDING 11 OF 13 ROUTES THAT ARE PROPOSED TO BE ELIMINATED IN 18 OF 20 WELDS THAT ARE PROPOSED FOR MAJOR SERVICE CHANGES BASED ON THE POLICY THRESHOLDS FOR CONSIDERATION.

I PROCEEDED TO TELL THEM RATHER THAN COMPLY WITH TITLE SIX CHAIR, LAWYER, WAYNE COOPER SIMPLY CHANGED MITIGATION TO MEAN OUTREACH, TO INFORM CUSTOMERS OF THEIR NEW ROUTES.

THERE WAS NO MEANINGFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR PUBLIC COMMENT.

AND THEN I SPECIFIED FEDERAL TRANSIT ADMINISTRATION CIRCULAR FOR SEVEN OH 2.1 B 2012, CHAPTER FOUR, DESK 16.

I WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT ROUTE THREE 92 IS ACTUALLY REPRESENTATIVE REPRESENTATIVE GINA HANNAH HOUSES ROUTE.

SHE REPRESENTS THE AREA FROM BREAKER AND NORTH LAMAR, ALL THE WAY TO GREAT HILLS, THE AREA WHERE YOU UNILATERALLY ELIMINATED ACCESS TO THE DOMAIN AND GREAT HEELS FOR HER CONSTITUENTS.

I WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE AS WELL THAT IN THE BOARD PACKET ON PAGE FIVE, THERE'S AN UPDATE TITLE, SIX UPDATE ABOUT AUSTIN FC FROM MR. DIETER.

AND HE SPECIFIES THAT YES, THROUGHOUT THREE 83, WE'LL GO FROM EVERY 30 MINUTES TO EVERY 15 MINUTES BETWEEN NORTH LAMAR TRANSIT JENNER AND PAVILION PARKING, RIGHT? AND ROUTE THREE 92 WILL INCREASE THE EVERY 20 MINUTES ON GAME DAY.

AND SO WHILE I RECOGNIZE THAT GAMES ARE NICE TO ATTEND, THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MINORITIES ARE STILL TRYING TO GET TO WORK.

IT'S ALMOST THE CHAIRMAN.

I'M JUST GOING TO ASK YOU ONCE AGAIN, TO RESTORE SERVICE, TO REPRESENTATIVE GINA HERE, THE HOSES, CONSTITUENTS ALL THE WAY TO GREAT HILL.

AND THEN I BELIEVE I'M HEARING THE BEEPER.

I'M NOT SURE, BUT I DO WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT I AM URGING ANYONE IN THE PUBLIC WHO IS LISTENING TO CONTACT THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS IN THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE, BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH DEMOCRATIC VOTES TO PASS.

HALLSVILLE THREE EIGHT, NINE, THREE.

AND WITH THAT, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL GLADLY ANSWER THEM AT THIS TIME, BUT I JUST WANT YOU TO RECOGNIZE IT'S ON ETHICAL AND YOU HAVE NOT COMPLIED WITH TITLE SIX, AND I WOULD ASK YOU TO DO SO BECAUSE THE REAL IS 24 TO 30 YEARS IN THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHT AWAY, NORTH OF US, ONE 83.

SO IF YOU WANT FAVORS FROM THE STATE IS FREE LAND 99 YEAR LEASE, THEN I THINK IT WOULD BE A NICE THING FOR YOU TO ACTUALLY RETURN THE FAVOR AND PROVIDE SERVICE BETWEEN SAMSUNG AND APPLE AND NORTH OF US.

ONE 83.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AND IF

[00:05:01]

YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, JOSEPH, THANK YOU.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS BARBARA EPSTEIN.

MS. EPSTEIN, ARE YOU ON THE LINE WITH US? WE CAN HEAR YOU.

OKAY.

I'M SORRY.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER YOU WERE SPEAKING TO ME.

YES, MA'AM MS. EPSTEIN.

IT'S UH, THE CHAIRS RECOGNIZE YOU YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UH, THE PEER HERE BEFORE, I'LL REMIND YOU THAT I'M AN ELDER LAW ATTORNEY.

I SERVE ON THE BOARD OF AUSTIN'S AGING IN PLACE GROUP, AND I'VE WRITTEN AUSTIN'S BUSES FOR 47 YEARS.

I'M ASKING YOU TO RESTORE THE PREVIOUS NUMBER 10 BUS STOP AT HANCOCK CENTER BECAUSE YOU'RE A PLANNING DEPARTMENT, TOOK A BUS STOP THAT WAS SAFE AND MADE IT LESS SAFE.

I WONDER IF ANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES WHO HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY SHOULD STOP DRIVING A LOT OF PEOPLE IN AUSTIN, PERHAPS 23%.

IF THE INTERNET IS ACCURATE OR EITHER OVER 65 OR DISABLED, THEY NEED GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD, PUBLIC TRANSIT, BUT YOU'RE NOT GIVING THEM OR THE GENERAL PUBLIC, ANY INCENTIVE TO DITCH THEIR CARS.

HERE'S WHY, WHEN I'M ALL GONE, THE TRIP PLANNER, IT DOESN'T EVEN SHOW ME THAT TOGETHER.

TWO BUSES, THE THREE 35 AND NUMBER 10, DID WE LOSE MISS EPSTEIN? MISS EPSTEIN? WE JUST LOST YOU.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YEAH, WE'LL GO ON.

AND THEN IF YOU GET MISS EPSTEIN BACK, WE'LL GO BACK.

THANK YOU.

APOLOGIES.

MISS EPSTEIN.

YOU'RE LISTENING.

UH, OUR NEXT SPEAKER WILL BE CHRISTOPHE.

DREWNIAK APOLOGIES IF I MANGLED YOUR NAME.

MR. ECHO, ARE YOU OUT THERE? IF, UH, IF YOU CAN HEAR US AND YOU'RE NOT JOINED, IF YOU'LL CALL IN, UH, WE'LL TRY TO GET TO YOU.

AND FINALLY, UH, CHARLENE HARRIS, SHE NEVER CONFIRMED ANY LUCK WITH MS. EPSTEIN, MISS EPSTEIN.

ARE YOU ABLE TO HEAR ME? WE LOST YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR COMMENTS.

YEAH.

SCENE.

IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, IF YOU, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY CALLING BACK INTO THE MEETING, WE WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER THREE MINUTES.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, ED.

WE'LL, UH, PRESS ON.

IF WE HEAR FROM HER, LET ME KNOW.

[II. Advisory Committee Updates (Part 1 of 2)]

NEXT UP WE HAVE OUR ADVISORY COMMITTEE UPDATES.

UH, FIRST THE ACCESS ADVISORY COMMITTEE.

I HAVE TO SAY WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS TO BE IN PERSON WITH MR. BANKS AND BE ABLE TO GET THE FULL BENEFIT OF HIS HABERDASHERY EXCELLENCE.

I SAY YOU GOT TO COORDINATE.

SO I TRY TO COORDINATE WHENEVER I CAN.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

CHAIRMAN COOPER, UH, CEO, PRESIDENT BOARD MEMBERS.

MY NAME IS YANNIS BANKS.

I AM THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH, UH, MANAGER FOR THERE FOR THE GREEN LINE AND METRO RAPID FOR AUSTIN TRANSIT PARTNERSHIP.

IT'S STILL NEW.

SO I'M GETTING YOU AND SAFETY.

IF YOU DON'T, YOU'RE FAILING BOTH THE PUBLIC AND YOUR MISSION HERE.

MAY I ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, MR. EPSTEIN, MS. EPSTEIN.

I'M SORRY.

UH, IF YOU WILL HOLD ON ON A SECOND.

WE MISSED YOUR COMMENTS.

UH, MR. BANKS, UH, ARE YOU THERE? YEAH.

ED, CAN YOU HAVE HER? ARE YOU THERE? YES.

CAN YOU HEAR US, MS. EPSTEIN? CAN YOU HEAR US? YEP.

I CAN HEAR YOU NOW.

OKAY, GREAT.

I'M SORRY, BUT WE HEARD ABOUT A MINUTE OF YOUR, THE BEGINNING OF YOUR PUBLIC COMMENT, AND THEN WE LOST YOU.

[I. Public Comment (Part 2 of 2)]

WOULD YOU LIKE TO START AGAIN? I'LL RESET THE TIMER AND YOU CAN HAVE ANOTHER THREE MINUTES.

OKAY.

DO YOU WANT ME TO REREAD OR DO YOU WANT ME TO SEND IT TO YOU AND HAVE YOU, AND HAVE YOU CIRCULATE IT? YEAH, THAT'S UP TO YOU.

WE'RE HAPPY WE CAN HEAR YOU NOW.

AND WE'RE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU PARTICIPATE WITH US.

OKAY.

DO YOU WANT

[00:10:01]

ME TO START ALL OVER AGAIN OR YOU WANT TO TELL ME WHERE YOU STOP HEARING ME? I THINK IT WOULD BE USEFUL IF YOU STARTED AGAIN.

OKAY.

SORRY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'M SORRY.

OKAY.

WELL, HOPEFULLY IT'S, YOU KNOW, WITHIN YOUR, WITHIN YOUR TIMEFRAME.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, GIVE ME A SEC HERE.

OKAY.

I'VE APPEARED HERE BEFORE.

I'LL REMIND YOU THAT I'M AN ELDER LAW ATTORNEY.

I SERVE ON THE BOARD OF AUSTIN'S AGING IN PLACE GROUPS.

AND I'VE WRITTEN OFF SINCE BUSES FOR 47 YEARS.

I'M ASKING YOU TO RESTORE THE PREVIOUS NUMBER 10 BUS STOP AT HANCOCK CENTER BECAUSE YOUR PLANNING DEPARTMENT TOOK A BUS STOP THAT WAS SAFE AND MADE IT LESS SAFE.

I WONDER IF ANY OF YOU HAVE RELATIVES WHO HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY SHOULD STOP DRIVING A LOT OF PEOPLE IN AUSTIN, PERHAPS 23%.

IF THE INTERNET IS ACCURATE OR EITHER OVER 65 OR DISABLED, THEY NEED GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD, PUBLIC TRANSIT, BUT YOU'RE NOT GIVING THEM OR THE GENERAL PUBLIC, ANY INCENTIVE TO DITCH THEIR CARS.

HERE'S WHY WHEN I LOG ON TO THE TRIP PLANNER, IT DOESN'T EVEN SHOW ME THAT TOGETHER.

TWO BUSES, THREE 35 AND 10.

SORRY, MY PAGE.

JUST PICK UP THE THREE 35 AND 10, UH, SORRY.

TAKE ME FROM 38TH STREET AND DUVALL STREET TO MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

HEB AT 41ST AND RED RIVER.

IT TELLS ME TO WALK HALFWAY AFTER TAKING EITHER THE THREE 35 OR NUMBER SEVEN.

WHEN YOU THINK THE STRIP REPRESENTS THE MOST BASIC TRANSIT TRIP IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN, PEOPLE NEEDING TO GET GROCERIES AND MEDICINE.

HOW CAN I ASK SENIORS TO TRY TRANSIT? IF IT TAKES THE SAME 30 MINUTES TO WALK THE ENTIRE POINT SEVENTH OF A MILE.

AND EVEN IF WEATHER PERMITTING, THEY CAN WALK THE DISTANCE.

THEY MAY ENCOUNTER DISTRACTED DRIVERS AT EVERY INTERSECTION AROUND 20 YEARS AGO WHEN HANCOCK CENTER REDEVELOPED, AFTER SOME WRANGLING BETWEEN CAP METRO AND THE COMMUNITY, THE BUS STOP WAS PLACED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SITE PLAN.

THAT'S THE SAFEST LOCATION, RIGHT BY THE ATB ALMOST THREE YEARS AGO.

CAP METRO KEPT THAT STOP FOR NEW, LESS USE ROUTES, BUT MOVE THE NUMBER 10 RED RIVER.

NUMBER 10 TO RED RIVER.

AS IT ATTEMPTED TO DO ALL THOSE YEARS AGO, YOUR STAFF SAID THEY NEEDED TO USE SHORTER BUSES AT THIS STOP.

I CHECKED THE 40 FOOT BUS HOLDS 38 PEOPLE, UH, 35, BUT 35 FOOT BUS HOLDS 28.

WHY COULDN'T THE NUMBER 10 HAVE BECOME A SHORTER BUS CROSSING RED RIVER STREET.

MID-BLOCK AT HANCOCK CENTER.

ISN'T SAFE BECAUSE CARS ROUTINELY TRY TO BEAT PEDESTRIANS THROUGH THE WALKWAY.

OF COURSE, THE NUMBER 10 STOPS ALSO REQUIRE ME TO RECROSS 38TH STREET TO REACH THE THREE 35 STOPS WHERE MORE THAN ONCE AS MANY AS THREE CARS HAVE SPED UP TURNING WEST ONTO 38TH STREET, TRYING TO BEAT ME THROUGH THAT LOCK LINE.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN KNOCKED TO THE GROUND BY A DISTRACTED DRIVER WHILE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CROSSWALK? I HAVE, EVEN THOUGH I WORE BRIGHT CLOTHING, I HAD A LITTLE DOG ON A LEASH THAT TURNED INTO A $20,000 TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM.

IF THAT DRIVER ON DUVALL STREET HAD BEEN GOING AT THE SAME RATE OF SPEED AS THE DRIVERS, ALL I'M ON RED RIVER STREET, NOW I WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED.

SO WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET YOU TO FOCUS ON WHAT THE PUBLIC NEEDS WHEN YOUR STAFF CHANGED THE HANCOCK NUMBER 10 BUS STOP.

THEY PUT EVERYONE RIDING THIS ROUTE IN HARMS WAY.

NOT JUST ME.

I DON'T WANT TO BECOME ONE MORE VISION, ZERO PEDESTRIAN INJURY DEATHS STATISTIC THAT NO ONE HERE SEEMS TO PAY ANY ATTENTION TO HAVING TO CROSS A SINGLE EXTRA BUSY STREET TO GET TO A BUS STOP CAN ACTUALLY MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH.

YOUR STAFF SAID IT WAS MORE IMPORTANT TO HAVE A ROUTE THAT RON RAN IN A STRAIGHT LINE IS THAT NEAT STRAIGHT LINE, MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYONE'S LIFE.

FROM A PRAGMATIC STANDPOINT, YOU NEED TO RETHINK HOW YOU'RE GETTING PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR CARS, USING BUSES TO GET TO THEIR MOST BASIC NEARBY DESTINATIONS EFFICIENTLY AND SAFELY.

IF YOU DON'T, YOU ARE FAILING BOTH THE PUBLIC AND YOUR MISSION HERE.

THEY HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, MISS EPSTEIN.

THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE WHILE WE WORK THROUGH OUR TECHNICAL ISSUES.

[II. Advisory Committee Updates (Part 2 of 2)]

ALL RIGHT, NEXT STEP.

UH, MR. BANKS.

OKAY.

I'M HAVING TROUBLE HEARING.

Y'ALL.

ARE THERE GOING TO BE ANY QUESTIONS? SORRY.

MA'AM NO QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'LL I APPRECIATE IT.

AND I HOPE THAT YOU'LL TAKE THIS MESSAGE TO HEART.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

BYE-BYE ALL RIGHT.

I'D SAY THERE ARE A LOT MORE NEW, NEW FACES THAT ARE COMING ON BOARD, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED AS THE PROJECT CONTINUES AT THIS TIME.

UH, ONE JUST LITTLE INTERESTING TIDBIT.

IN FACT, I'LL THROW OUT IS THAT THUS FAR, I WROTE THIS DOWN THAT THERE IS A COMBINED 280 YEARS OF PUBLIC TRANSIT EXPERIENCE AND DIVERSITY AMONG THE MEMBERS OF THE STAFF THAT HAVE BEEN HIRED THUS FAR, WHICH I THINK IS PRETTY EXCITING.

AND WE WE'VE TAKEN STAFF FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FROM VARIOUS TRANSIT AGENCIES THAT HAVE COME TO JOIN US FOR OUR PROJECT.

UM, WE ALSO PASS BOARD POLICIES AND THEN FINALLY, UM, WE GOT TO HAVE THE VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE BLUE LINE ALIGNMENT, UH, SOMETHING THAT

[V.1. Approval of an agreement related to financial commitments and the development and operation of a proposed McKalla Place Rail Station with Austin Stadco LLC.]

NEXT UP, OUR ACTION ITEMS. NUMBER ONE IS APPROVAL OF AN AGREEMENT RELATED TO FINANCIAL COMMITMENTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OPERATION OF A PROPOSED MCCALLA PLACE RAIL STATION WITH AUSTIN STAD CO LLC, CHARMELLA MUCOR G R U LIVE OR TEAM MEETINGS.

NO, WE'RE GOOD.

WE ARE GETTING USED TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS.

EVP PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT AT CAP METRO.

AND THE PRESENTATION IN FRONT OF YOU IS, UM, IT'S JUST, THESE ARE HIGHLIGHTS OF CAP METRO AND AUSTRIAN FC AGREEMENT ON MCKELLA STATION, UH, DEVELOPMENT OF THE Q2, UM, STADIUM, THE STATION THAT WOULD, UH, PROVIDE SERVICES TO Q2 STADIUM WITH THAT NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

OKAY.

HERE'S THE OVERVIEW OF THE FINANCIAL AGREEMENT AS PART OF TRANSPORTATION MITIGATION REQUIREMENTS IN ITS LEASE AND BASED ON THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET WITHIN THAT LEASE WITH CITY OF BOSTON, AUSTIN STANKO LLC WILL PAY TO CAP METRO AND AMOUNT, NOT TO EXCEED $640,000 FOR CONSTRUCTION OF CERTAIN TRANSIT FACILITIES, BUS AND TRANSIT IMPROVEMENTS TO BE LOCATED IN PUBLIC RIGHTS AWAY WITHIN Q2 STADIUM, IN THE VICINITY OF Q2 STADIUM AND ADDITIONALLY $3 MILLION TO BE PAID IN EQUAL INSTALLMENTS OF 200,000.

OVER A 15 YEAR PERIOD FOR PURPOSE OF DEFERRING CAPITAL IS COST AND EXPENSES IN CONNECTION WITH THE STADIUM DESIGN CONSTRUCT, THE STATION, THE DESIGN CONSTRUCTION, AND PERMITTING OFF MCCULLOUGH

[00:25:01]

PLACE.

RAIL STATION WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT JUST A COUPLE POINTS OF WHY WE ARE BUILDING THE STATION AND HOW IT ALIGNS WITH THE AGENCY'S STRATEGIC GOALS.

UM, IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING HIGH QUALITY CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE, WE, IT ALSO, THIS IS THE FIRST PROFESSIONAL STADIUM, UM, PROFESSIONAL SPORTS FRANCHISE IN AUSTIN, AND WE ARE BEING VALUED COMMUNITY PARTNER IN SUPPORTING ECONOMIC GROWTH IN NORTH AUSTIN AND CONNECTING PEOPLE TO PLACES.

UM, NOT AS PART OF THIS AGREEMENT, BUT WANTING TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE SERVICE PLANNING PROCESS THAT WE HAVE UNDERTAKEN SO FAR AND HIGHLIGHTS OF THAT, THE SERVICE TO Q2 STADIUM, UM, IT OFFERS HIGHER LEVEL OF FREQUENCY ON MITCHELL RAPID EIGHT TO THREE AT SEVEN MINUTE, UM, AT AN EIGHT MINUTE, NO MORE THAN EIGHT MINUTE ON GAME DAYS, METRO BUS, ROUTE THREE, THREE 83 AND THREE 92, AS WELL AS, UM, AT HIGHER FREQUENCY, WE HAVE DESIGNATED METRO ACCESS DROP OFF AND PICK UP NEAR THE STADIUM.

WE ARE OPERATING METRO RAIL, UM, FOR TWO HOURS AFTER GAMES AND SPECIAL SERVICE TO AUSTIN FC GAME DAYS, INCLUDING Q2 OPENING EVENT.

THAT'S ON JUNE 16TH.

SATURDAY SERVICE WILL BEGIN ON MAY 29TH.

UM, AND AGAIN, FOR GAME DAY, WE ARE PROVIDING A SERVICE WE'LL START AROUND 10:00 AM AND OPERATE UNTIL AFTER MIDNIGHT, AFTER TWO HOURS AFTER THE GAMES AND DETAILS OF THAT CAN, UH, IS AVAILABLE@CAPMETRO.ORG FORWARD SLASH AUSTIN MC.

SO WANTED TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE TWO, UM, CLAUSES OF THE FINANCIAL AGREEMENT.

THERE ARE NOT A WHOLE LOT OF COMPLICATED DETAILS IN THE AGREEMENT, $640,000, UH, FOR TRANSIT RELATED BUS AND, UM, RIGHT AWAY FACILITY IMPROVEMENT AND $3 MILLION CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS OVER A SPAN OF 15 YEARS TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF STATION AND ASSOCIATED EXPENSES.

WE DO HAVE A TRANSPORTATION PARKING AND EVENT PLAN.

IT NEEDS TO BE UPDATED AS CONDITIONS ON THE GROUND CHANGE.

WE ARE REMAINING FLEXIBLE ON THAT AND WE, UH, THE CREAMER STATION WOULD REMAIN OPERATIONAL, UM, UNTIL MCELLIS, UH, POLICE STATION IS OPEN WITH THAT.

I AM REQUESTING, UH, THE APPROVAL OF THE AGREEMENT AND I'M GOING TO PASS IT ON TO CHIP.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR MS. MUKHERJEE? REMEMBER STRATTON? YEAH, SO I JUST WANTED TO A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS.

ONE, UM, MY UNDERSTANDING IS JUST TO, TO MAKE SURE AND I, I DID READ THROUGH IN THE PACKET, THE, THE, THE AGREEMENT, THE AGREEMENT, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I UNDERSTAND THAT, THAT WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENT DISTINCT PIECES HERE AS AT LEAST IT IS.

IT IS, UM, EXPLAINED WITHIN THE AGREEMENT THAT WE, THAT THE DEFINITION OF TRANSIT IN THE AGREEMENT MORE SPECIFICALLY IS FOCUSING AROUND, UM, BUS AND, UH, AND OTHER RELATED SERVICES AS AN WE'RE SEPARATING OUT RAIL.

AND SO THE $640,000 REVOLVES AROUND UPGRADING AND UPDATING THINGS LIKE CROSSWALKS, PEDESTRIAN HYBRID, HYBRID BEACONS, ANY KIND OF STATION REQUIREMENT, LIKE BUS DEPOT REQUIREMENTS ITSELF FOR PEDESTRIAN DROP-OFF AND PICK UP FOR THE BUSES THEMSELVES, METRO ACCESS, THOSE KINDS OF THINGS.

CORRECT.

THAT IS CORRECT.

AND I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT I DIDN'T MENTION INITIALLY THAT THIS IS PART OF THE TRANSPORTATION MITIGATION REQUIREMENT WITH CITY OF AUSTIN AND THE $640,000 IS, UH, COMES OUT OF STEMS FROM THAT, UM, THAT, THAT UNDERSTANDING AND THE LEASE AGREEMENT AND THAT, THAT IS AN UP TO AMOUNT.

SO IT MAY NOT BE THAT WE RECEIVE A FULL SIX 40, BECAUSE IF WE DON'T SPEND THAT MUCH, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO PAY US THAT MUCH.

THAT'S CORRECT.

UM, THE WAY THE AMOUNT, IT, IT IS ITEMIZED, BUT IT'S AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $640,000.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

NOW, ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE, OF THE EQUATION WITH THE METRO RAIL, THAT IS THEY'RE GIVING, THEY'RE GOING TO BE GIVING US THE 300 OR THE $3 MILLION PAID AT $200,000 OVER THE 15 YEARS, CORRECT.

FOR THE, BASICALLY FOR EVERYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH BUILDING THE STATION, MAINTAINING THE RAIL, EVERYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH THAT AS PART OF THE AGREEMENT ON THAT SIDE OF THE LEDGER.

CORRECT.

AND THAT IS CORRECT.

OKAY.

AND THE, THE, THE SERVICE THEN WE'RE, WE'RE ALREADY GOING TO BEGIN THE SERVICE PRETTY MUCH IMMEDIATELY WITH THIS, WITH THIS FIRST GAME, CORRECT? THAT'S CORRECT.

OKAY.

WONDERFUL.

REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS, THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

AND I'M GLAD TO HEAR THAT, THAT WE'RE GETTING THIS AGREEMENT IN PLACE NOW, WHICH JUST ONE MORE STEP FORWARD FOR THE GROWTH OF THE RED LINE AND PROJECT CONNECT, AS WELL AS ALL THE PIECES OF THE PUZZLE COMING TOGETHER FOR TRANSIT RIGHT THERE.

ONE LAST THING I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT I NOTED, I BELIEVE I SAW IN THERE A PROVISION ABOUT PARKING RIDE, THAT WE'D ALSO BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THE FACILITIES FOR PARKING RIGHT IN THERE.

OKAY.

AB ABSOLUTELY.

AND I CAN ELABORATE

[00:30:01]

ON THAT A LITTLE BIT.

SO AUSTIN EX FC, ACCORDING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AS SAID IN GOOD FAITH, UH, D WILL CARRY ON GOOD FAITH DISCUSSIONS TO HAVE ANY, UM, ADDITIONAL PARKING, UM, AT THEIR PARK AND RIDE FOR AS PARKING RIGHT TO CAP METRO STATION ON NON-EVENT DAYS.

SO, UM, WE GET TO BENEFIT TO USE THAT AS A PARKING RIGHT OPPORTUNITY AS WELL FOR IT.

I THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE A HUGE BENEFIT FOR FOLKS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OVER THERE TOO, BECAUSE CURRENTLY THAT ONE OF THE BIGGEST, I THINK ONE OF THE BIGGEST, UH, ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS I'VE HEARD ABOUT THE KRAMER STATION ALONG THE RED LINE IS, IS IT'S THERE, THERE'S NOT THAT ABILITY.

THERE'S, IT'S REALLY PRETTY MUCH JUST DROP AND GO.

YOU DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO, TO PARK AND UTILIZE THE WAY THAT YOU DO AT HOWARD AT LAKELINE AT LEANDER.

SO I THINK THAT THIS IS YET ANOTHER WIN-WIN WIN FOR ALL OF US.

SO REALLY GLAD THAT THAT'S GOING TO BE A PART OF, OF WHAT WE'RE DOING TOO WITH THIS.

YES, WE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

SHERMILLA.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OTHER QUESTIONS, REMEMBER POOL? I WAS LOOKING AT THE 3 MILLION IT'S THE M IN THE FIRST, WHEREAS THE, THE SUBSECTION TO LIE 3 MILLION TO CAP METRO, UM, APPROVED AND RECOMMENDED FOR TRANSIT RAIDERS FACILITIES THAT EQUAL INSTALLMENTS OVER A 15 YEAR PERIOD.

THAT'S SPENT 200,000 A YEAR.

WHEN DOES THAT START? WHEN WILL WE SEE THE FIRST INSTALLMENT PAYMENT? I THINK AT THE START OF CONSTRUCTION IS HOW I HAVE IT.

AND ASHLEY, IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL CLARIFICATION ON THAT ARE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE IN THE AGREEMENT ABOUT THE COMMENCEMENT DATE.

AND I THINK IT TIES WITH THE COMMENCEMENT.

IT'S NOT IN HERE, MY MARCH 1ST OF 2022, OR START A CONSTRUCTION, WHATEVER COMES FIRST.

AND WHICHEVER COMES FROM PAGE NUMBER IS THAT 31 31 IN YOUR PACKET.

AND SO HANG ON A SECOND.

LET ME JUST MAKE SURE I SEE THAT FIRST INSTALLMENT FIRST DAY OF THE CALENDAR MONTH COMMENCEMENT OF CONSTRUCTION, BUT NOT LATER THAN MARCH ONE, 2022.

OKAY.

SO, SO, SO SOMETIME NEXT YEAR AND LATER THAN MARCH ONE OF NEXT YEAR.

OKAY.

THANKS.

REMEMBER KITCHEN.

UH, YES.

I JUST HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE USE OF THE 200,000.

UM, I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT LANGUAGE RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF ME, BUT BASICALLY, UM, CAP METRO CAN USE FOR OTHER TRANSIT RELATED FACILITIES IS THAT, UM, IT SAYS AS DETERMINED FROM TIME TO TIME BY CAP METRO, UM, IS, IS THAT TO BE READ AS IN, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION? I, I CAN ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THAT.

SURE.

SO IT IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF MCKELLA STATION.

AND SINCE THE 15 YEAR PERIOD IS MUCH LONGER THAN WHEN THE DESIGN IS GOING TO BE COMPLETED AND CONSTRUCTED.

UH, IT IS FOR MITCHELL RAIL OPERATIONS TO MCCALLA STATION, ANY UPGRADES TO IT, ANY SAFETY OR SECURITY IMPROVEMENTS THAT MAY BE NEEDED, THAT'S SPECIFIC TO OPERATIONS TO THE STADIUM THAT'S AND WE WANTED TO BE VERY EXPLICIT AND FLEXIBLE IN THAT LANGUAGE THAT, UM, WE ARE NOT SPECIFICALLY DUE TO THIS 15 YEAR PERIOD WITH EQUAL AMOUNTS OF 200,000.

SO WE CAN USE IT FOR OTHER PLACES, UM, BECAUSE IT SAYS FOR OTHER TRANSIT RELATED FACILITIES WITHIN CAPITAL METRO'S JURISDICTION.

SO I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT, I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT THE SENTENCE SAYS.

SO I JUST, JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT WAS WITHIN A CAP METRO'S DISCRETION, AS OPPOSED TO HAVING TO REACH SOME SORT OF AGREEMENT WITH THE COMPANY.

I'M NOT SEEING ANY LANGUAGE TO THAT EFFECT, BUT I HAVEN'T READ EVERY LAST LINE IN HERE.

SO JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I WAS READING IT RIGHT.

IT IS AT OUR DISCRETION, BUT I THINK WE'RE PRECEDENT HAS A CLARIFYING.

WHERE DOES IT SAY OTHER, BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST FOR PAGE 31, UH, I'M 31 TO BE ALL THIS SUGGEST IS THAT ON AN ANNUALIZED BASIS, IT'D BE $200,000 PAYMENT.

AND I THINK WHAT SHARMILA IS EXPLAINING IS THE, THE STATION WILL OBVIOUSLY BE BUILT BEFORE THE 15 YEARS ARE UP.

AND SO IT CAN'T BE CAPITALIZED IN THE YEAR OF SAY 20, 29 AGAINST THE STATION THAT WAS BUILT IN 2023, BUT IT IS ALL MONEY THAT IS RELATED TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE STATION.

OBVIOUSLY IT WILL BE THERE.

THEY'RE BASICALLY JUST GIVING US PAYMENTS BACK OVER A PERIOD OF TIME.

I'LL JUST NOTE THAT THE STATION WILL ALREADY BE BUILT, RIGHT? THE PRIOR PARAGRAPH A SAYS, IF THE COMPANY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IT'S PAID OVER TIME AND WILL BE USED BY CAP METRO FOR OTHER FACILITIES, UH, AS DETERMINED BY CAP METRO.

SO I THINK IT'S CLEAR THAT THAT'S OUR DISCRETION, NOT THEIRS.

THAT IS CORRECT.

THAT IS CORRECT.

IT WILL BE A REVENUE STREAM INTO THE CAPITAL BUDGET BECAUSE WE'VE ALREADY FRONT LOADED THE COST OF THE STATION.

THAT IS A LITTLE BIT CONFUSING.

AND FOR THAT, THAT'S THE REASON

[00:35:01]

THAT IT WOULD BE SPENT ON OTHER TRANSIT RELATED FACILITIES, BECAUSE WE'VE ALREADY SPENT THE MONEY ON MY CALLA.

AND SO THIS IS REIMBURSING US, AND THEN WE WILL BE SPENDING IN OTHER THINGS WITHIN CAT METRO'S DISCRETION.

YES, HUH? HUH.

SO THAT SUB PARAGRAPH UNDER NUMBER TWO, FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS SEEMS TO SAY IT SEEMS TO BE IN CONFLICT.

UM, BUT I THINK WE ARE WORKING OUT HERE ON THE DIOCESE THAT IT IS INTENDED FOR MCCALLA STATION AND THAT IF THERE AREN'T FINANCIAL NEEDS AFTER THOSE STATION IS BUILT, BUT WE ARE STILL RECEIVING THE 200,000 A YEAR OVER THE 15 YEAR SPAN, WHICH TAKES US INTO 2037, RIGHT.

THEN THAT'S A PERMISSIVE THAT'S PERMISSIVE LANGUAGE.

THEN FOR KENT METRO TO USE IT FOR TRANSIT RELATED NEEDS AT OTHER STATIONS, THAT'S CORRECT.

WE HADN'T HAD THAT LANGUAGE IN THERE THAT BASICALLY SAID WE ARE OBVIOUSLY BUILDING THE STATION OR ON THE EARLY SIDE, THEY WILL BE GIVING US PAYMENTS FOR 15 YEARS.

AND WE HAD TO HAVE THAT LANGUAGE TO SUGGEST THAT WE CAN USE IT.

IT'S JUST THE BOARD AND STAFF OF 12 YEARS FROM NOW, IT'LL BE ANOTHER $200,000 IN REVENUE SOURCE THAT WILL HAVE TO BE JUST SPENT ON THE BUDGET THAT YEAR BECAUSE THE OTHER PRO THE PROJECT HAS ALREADY BEEN BUILT.

SO WE JUST NEED THAT LANGUAGE TO NOT MAKE IT RELATE TO SOMETHING BECAUSE IT'S ALREADY BEEN CAPITALIZED.

I RE I UNDER, YES, THAT MAKES SENSE TO ME.

BUT I DO THINK THAT THE FIRST PRIORITY SHOULD BE WHAT ARE THE NEEDS IN 2035 OF THE MCCALLA STATION, BECAUSE IT WILL HAVE BEEN IN PRETTY HEAVY USE FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS.

AND THERE COULD BE SOME FACILITIES IMPROVEMENTS, TRANSIT RELATED NEEDS AT THAT SITE.

SO WOULDN'T, WE GIVE PREFERENCE AND FIRST DIBS ON, I MEAN, 200,000, YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT, WELL WE, YEAH, SO, AND IDEALLY IN OUR WORLD, WE DON'T WANT TO EVER TARGET REVENUE SOURCE BECAUSE IT ALL GOES INTO OUR STATE OF GOOD REPAIR PROGRAM.

SO WE DON'T HAVE A SOURCE THAT GOES TO A STATION TO A SPECIFIC BOSS DISTRIBUTE ROAD IT'S DONE IN A SYSTEMIZED WAY FROM A TRANSIT ASSET MANAGEMENT POINT OF VIEW AND STATE OF GOOD REPAIR.

SO, SO IT GIVES THAT FLEXIBILITY TO THE, YOU KNOW, WHEN THE ACTUAL NEEDS ARISE.

SO GENERALLY SPEAKING, THIS STATION IS GOING TO BE IN GREAT, UH, IN A GREAT STATE OF REPAIR FOR DECADES.

AND I, AND I APPRECIATE THAT.

AND THE FLEXIBILITY, I AGREE, UM, IT'S NECESSARY GIVEN THE LONG GLIDE PATH TO GET THE 3 MILLION.

UM, BUT I WOULD LIKE THE RECORD TO REFLECT THAT.

I THINK THAT THE FIRST PRIORITY OR THE PRIORITY SHOULD BE WHAT ARE THE NEEDS AT THE STATION FOR WHICH WE GOT THAT MONEY.

WE DIDN'T GET THE MONEY GENERALLY FOR THAT MATTER.

WE DID GET IT SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE OF THE STADIUM THAT WAS BEING BUILT THERE AND BECAUSE OF THE NEGOTIATIONS AND THEY WEREN'T TERRIBLY ROBUST, IN MY OPINION, WITH REGARD TO COMMUNITY ASSETS, THIS IS ONE PLACE WHERE WE DID GET SOME, SOME SPECIFIC COMMUNITY ASSET FROM, UH, I DUNNO, I GUESS IT'S IT, WASN'T CALLED STAT CO AT THE TIME, BUT IT'S CALLED STACK COME NOW.

SO I JUST, I WANNA MAKE THE POINT FOR OUR RECORD, HOW WE GOT THAT MONEY, WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES WERE SURROUNDING IT, HOW THE CITY COUNCIL VOTED FOR THAT, WITH THE IDEA THAT THAT MONEY WAS GOING TO HELP WITH THE BUILDING OF THE MCCALLA STATION.

I GET THE NEED TO HAVE FLEXIBILITY REITERATE THAT I'M NOT OPPOSED TO THAT.

SO I'M REALLY JUST TAKING THIS OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SURE THE RECORD REFLECTS WHAT MY PERSONAL, UM, EXPECTATION IS AS THE COUNCIL MEMBER THAT REPRESENTS THAT DISTRICT.

AND AS PART OF THE GROUP THAT WAS NEGOTIATING WITH WHAT'S NOW CALLED STAFF FOR WHAT SMALL AMOUNT OF BENEFITS THAT WE WERE GOING TO GET FROM THEM.

THANK YOU.

REMEMBER KITCHEN.

UH, COULD WE CONSIDER AN AMENDMENT TO THE, UM, JUST AS BRIEF AMENDMENT THAT, UM, CAPTURES THAT, UH, INTENT? UM, KEEP THE SENTENCE SAYS IS WITH A COMMA THAT SAYS WITH PRIORITY FOR USE BEING GIVEN TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE MCCALLA PLAY STATION, AND THAT WOULD ALLOW THE FLEXIBILITY TO USE IT FOR OTHER, UM, YOU KNOW, FOR OTHER FACILITIES.

UH, BUT THAT IF THERE WERE NEEDS, UH, AT MCCALLA THAT RISE TO THE LEVEL OF NEEDING THE 200,000, THAT WOULD BE PRIORITY.

THE REASON IS FROM MY PERSPECTIVE IS, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A 15 YEAR PAYOUT.

THAT'S 15 YEARS IS A LONG TIME FROM NOW.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE HERE.

SO I THINK IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO CAPTURE THE INTENT, UM, IN THE ACTUAL LANGUAGE.

SO I JUST POSE THAT QUESTION.

UM, IT SEEMS TO CAPTURE WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

SO I WOULD THINK THAT IT WOULD BE ACCEPTABLE LANGUAGE.

LET ME JUST MAKE A QUICK

[00:40:01]

COMMENT ABOUT THAT.

WHAT WE'RE APPROVING IN MY MIND IS AS A CONTRACT BETWEEN US AND THE DEVELOPERS AND WE'LL HAVE PUT OUR MONEY INTO IT.

AND WHEN WE GET THE MONEY OUT, IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S OUR DISCRETION.

THIS LANGUAGE IS JUST TO MAKE CLEAR IN MY MIND THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A SAY AS TO HOW WE SPEND THE MONEY.

WE GET TO DETERMINE HOW WE SPEND THE MONEY.

ALL THOSE CONSIDERATIONS I THINK ARE APPROPRIATE FOR OUR BOARD TO THINK ABOUT.

BUT I THINK THIS CONTRACT JUST MAKES CLEAR AND THIS LANGUAGE JUST MAKES CLEAR, IT'S NOT THE STADIUM COMPANIES.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY INPUT AS TO THAT.

NO, BUT THEIR AGREEMENT AND THEY REACHED THE ZONE.

THEY WERE GRANTED ZONING BASED ON THEIR AGREEMENT TO PUT DOLLARS INTO MCCALLA STATION.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS THAT WHAT THEY'RE AGREEING TO DO IS TO GIVE US THE $200,000 IN OUR BOARD GETS TO DETERMINE HOW TO USE IT, WHICH I THINK IS ENTIRELY OKAY.

BASED ON THE, UH, BASED ON THEIR ZONING.

WE COULDN'T JUST GO OUT AND USE IT FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN ONE, OTHER THAN MCCALLA, BECAUSE IT'S REIMBURSING FOR A BUILDING MCCALLA.

AND THAT WAS WHAT THE, UH, THE PURPOSE OF THAT THOSE ZONING DOLLARS WERE.

SO, BUT TH THIS IS JUST SAYING WE'D GET 200,000 BUCKS A YEAR TO USE AS WE SEE FIT IN THE CAPITAL BUDGET.

AND I, AND I THINK THAT, UM, BOARD MEMBER KITCHENS, SUGGESTION THAT WE ADD IN THERE WITH FIRST PREFERENCE BE FOR, UH, TRANSIT RELATED USES AT THE MCCALLA PLACE FACILITY, UM, ENCOMPASSES THE INTENT OF THE CITY COUNCIL AND WORKING TOWARD THIS AGREEMENT WITH STRATCO.

AND IT DOESN'T DO ANY VIOLENCE OR HARM AT ALL TO ANY FUTURE ACTION OF THIS BOARD.

BUT IN FACT, CLEARLY STATES THAT THAT IS WHERE THOSE MONIES SHOULD BE USED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

AND IF THEY'RE NOT NEEDED, THEN CERTAINLY THE BOARD COULD USE THEM IN OTHER TRANSIT RELATED.

I MAY CHIME IN AND JUST MAKE ONE COMMENT FOR EVERYONE'S CONSIDERATION IS THE ENTIRE VIABILITY OF THE STATION.

THEN THE UPFRONT INVESTMENT THAT WE ARE PUTTING IN, UM, WE AHEAD OF THE FINANCIAL, UH, COMMITMENTS AND THE INSTALLMENTS THAT ARE, THAT IS, UH, PARTS OF THIS AGREEMENT.

I THINK THE VIABILITY OF MITCHELL RAIL, UM, AND OUR F OUR FUTURE FOCUS ON MAKING IT A REGIONAL RAIL WITH A HIGHER LEVEL OF FREQUENCY IN 15 MINUTES.

I THINK IT, WE REALLY SHOULD CONSIDER THIS PROBABLY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF BETTER SERVICE ON THE REDLINE REGIONAL RAIL.

AND THAT ESSENTIALLY GIVES THE BIBLE TO THE STATION, NOT THE PLATFORM AT THE, AT THE STADIUM.

SO I WOULD ALMOST ENCOURAGE US IF I MAY DO THAT TO KIND OF TAKE ON A BROADER PERSPECTIVE AND FOCUS ON OUR FUTURE SERVICE VIABILITY AND ANY NEED, IF DOUBLE TRACKING THIS EXPENSE NEEDS TO REALLY GO TOWARDS DOUBLE TRACKING TO MAKE SERVICE TO MCCULLOUGH STATION A MORE VIABLE, UM, REAL SERVICE.

I THINK, UM, OUR FUTURE USERS WOULD ACTUALLY LIKE THAT.

SO I, I ALSO DON'T WANT US TO RULE OUT BY B HAVING A VERY NARROW DEFINITION ON HOW THIS MONEY SHOULD BE USED AT THE STATION ITSELF, BECAUSE I THINK THAT IS SELF-DEFEATING, UM, FROM WHAT PROBABLY WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO ACHIEVE.

THANK YOU, MEMBER STRATTON.

UM, I, I CAN APPRECIATE WHERE, UM, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN AND COUNCIL MEMBER, UH, POOL WERE COMING FROM ON THIS, BUT, UM, FROM, FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, WE'VE THIS, MY CONCERN IS, IS THAT THIS MEANS THAT THE BOARD IS KIND OF GETTING IN THE MINUTIA OF, UM, MICROMANAGING A CONTRACT AND TRYING TO AMEND A CONTRACT FROM THE BOARD DIES.

AND I HAVE, UH, PERSONALLY, UH, HAVE A CONCERN ABOUT THAT.

UH, I FEEL LIKE THAT STAFF HAS NEGOTIATED IN GOOD FAITH WITH THE DEVELOPER ON THIS ONE TO HAVE THE AGREEMENT THE WAY IT IS.

AND SINCE THE MONEY IS ALREADY GOING TO BE FRONTED BY CAP METRO TO BUILD THE STADIUM, AND THAT'S GOING TO BE OBLIGATED BY US AND THE DEVELOPER PAYS IT BACK, IF IT'S ALREADY BEEN PAID FOR, THEN, YOU KNOW, IT'S GOING TO BE DETERMINED BY THE BOARD, HOW TO DO THIS AND HOW TO BEST, YOU KNOW, EXPEND THE FUNDS IN THE FUTURE, THROUGH THE CAPITAL PROJECTS, UH, BUDGET AND FOR THE STATE OF REPAIR AND TO WHAT, UM, UH, SHARMILA HAD STATED THAT, UH, PART OF THAT FUNDS OR ALL THAT FUNDS, I MEAN, PART OF IT COULD BE USED FOR THE STATION.

THE FUTURE PART OF IT COULD BE USED FOR DIRECT ADDRESSING THE TRACKS COULD BE USED FOR ADDRESSING, YOU KNOW, DOUBLE TRACKING MAINTENANCE WHO KNOWS WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S GOING TO SAY.

THE NEXT VERSION OF POSITIVE TRAIN CONTROL WAS GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

I MEAN, ALL THESE THINGS THAT COULD COME UP.

UH, I JUST PERSONALLY, UM, IN MY TIME HERE THAT WE'D BEEN ON THE BOARD, UM, I GUESS WHAT I'M GETTING AT

[00:45:01]

IS IF, IF, IF WE HAVE, IF THERE ARE BOARD MEMBERS THAT HAVE CONCERNS, I THINK BOTH FROM A POLICY PERSPECTIVE, AND THEN WE'VE THE WAY WE'VE APPROACHED THINGS IN THE PAST WITH THIS.

I THINK THAT I, I WOULD FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE RATHER THAN TRYING TO AMEND A CONTRACT HERE THAT WE JUST TAKE A VOTE UP OR DOWN AND THEN TAKE IT BACK TO STAFF AND LET THEM LOOK IT OVER AND THEN BRING IT BACK AGAIN AT A FUTURE TIME, IF THAT WERE THE CASE, IF THAT WERE A CASE THAT IT'S TRULY A BIG ENOUGH CONCERN THAT THE BOARD FEELS THAT THIS ISN'T BIG ENOUGH ISSUE RATHER THAN TRYING TO AMEND IT FROM THE DIOCESE, REMEMBER KITCHEN.

UM, I, I HEAR YOUR CONCERN, UM, MEMORY STRATTON, UM, I DON'T FEEL LIKE IT'S MICROMANAGING.

UM, I DO FEEL LIKE BECAUSE THIS IS A POLICY ISSUE, SO, AND I DON'T, I DON'T FEEL LIKE I NEED TO DICTATE WHAT THE LANGUAGE IS.

I'M NOT SUGGESTING THAT, UM, IT'S JUST IN FRONT OF US NOW AND IN AN EFFORT TO, TO GET IT DONE IS WHY I WAS PROPOSING THE LANGUAGE I'M HAPPY FOR, FOR THE STAFF TO TAKE IT BACK AND CONSIDER THE POLICY DIRECTION AND WHAT THE BEST WAY TO CAPTURE IT IN THE CONTRACT.

THAT'S FINE.

IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE THINKING, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT, BUT THE POLICY GOES TO HOW THIS, THESE FUNDS ARE USED 15 YEARS FROM NOW.

AND I DO THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE IF WE CHOOSE TO, AS A BOARD TO SET WHAT THAT POLICY IS RIGHT NOW.

AND I HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

UM, YOU KNOW, WITH REGARD TO MAKING SURE THE LANGUAGE IS BROAD ENOUGH TO REFLECT THE INTENT.

AND IF I'M UNDERSTANDING THE INTENT, THE INTENT IS SERVICE, UH, TO MCCALLA PLACE, WHICH IS FINE.

SO I CAN, I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE MAY BE DIFFERENT WAYS TO WORD THAT, AND I'M HAPPY FOR THE STAFF TO TAKE THAT BACK AND, AND THINK ABOUT BETTER WORDING.

I WAS JUST TRYING TO EXPEDITE IT TODAY, BUT I, BUT I DON'T.

AND, BUT I DON'T THINK AS MICRO PANTOMIME MANAGING TO, UM, TO POINT OUT WHAT IS REALLY A POLICY QUESTION.

SO, AND I THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE FOR US, UH, AS A BOARD TO INDICATE WHAT WE THINK THAT INTENT IS FROM A POLICY PERSPECTIVE GOING FORWARD.

YEAH, I WOULD JUST SAY IF I DON'T, I'M AT A LOSS, I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE WOULD HAVE BEEN TO CONTRACT BETWEEN US AND THE DEVELOPER WHERE WE'RE PAYING 20, SOME ODD MILLION DOLLARS TO BUILD THEM AS A STATION.

AND ONE THAT WILL SERVE THAT PART OF THE COMMUNITY.

AND WE GET A PIECE, BUT NOT ANYWHERE NEAR FULL REIMBURSEMENT.

WHY WOULD WE BIND OURSELVES IN A CONTRACT? IT SEEMS TO ME, IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A POLICY ABOUT THAT, WHICH I HAVE A ISSUE WITH AS WELL, BUT THAT SHOULD BE A POLICY DECISION OF THIS BOARD, NOT IN A CONTRACT WITH A THIRD PARTY.

AND SO I THINK IT'S, I DON'T THINK I UNDERSTAND THE CONVERSATION ABOUT THE POLICY AND WE CAN HAVE THAT DEBATE, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE THAT'S NOT APPROPRIATE FOR AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONTRACT WITH, WITH ANOTHER PARTY WE'RE TRYING TO BIND OURSELVES.

THAT SHOULD BE JUST A POLICY STATEMENT, REMEMBER POOL.

SO ACTUALLY MY, UM, CONCERN IS WITH THE LANGUAGE AND THE RESOLUTION, AND I'M NOT TOUCHING THE CONTRACT AT ALL, AND I'M ONLY VOTING ON THE RESOLUTION.

I'M, I MEAN, I KNOW THE CONTRACT IS AN AGREEMENT THAT'S ATTACHED TO IT, BUT I'M SAYING THAT THE MONEY SHOULD GO TO BENEFIT SPECIFICALLY THE STATION THAT STEAD CO IS BENEFITING FROM, AND THAT THE AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY COUNCIL WAS THAT IT WOULD GO TO THAT STATION AND ITS CONSTRUCTION REALLY IS ALIGNING IT WITH THE INTENTIONS AT THE TIME.

UM, YOU KNOW, IT'S $200,000 A YEAR.

IT'S REALLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY, HONESTLY.

AND, UH, AND IT'S OFFERED UP IN SMALL INCREMENTS OVER A REALLY LONG PERIOD OF TIME.

SO IN THE END, IT'S NOT EVEN GOING TO BE WORTH WHAT IT IS WORTH TODAY, WHEN IT DOES FINALLY COME TO CAP METRO, IT MAY BE WORTH SIGNIFICANTLY LESS.

AND SO IT WON'T HAVE THE BENEFIT MAYBE THAT IT NEEDS TO WAS INTENDED TO HAVE IT IN THE CALLA PLACE.

UM, I MAY JUST NEED TO ABSTAIN ON VOTING ON THE RESOLUTION, BUT I, I REALLY HOPE THAT, UM, THAT THE DIRECTION THAT THE STAFF I WOULD BE SATISFIED AND COULD POSSIBLY VOTE FOR THIS, IF I WAS ABLE TO, UM, WITH THE CONVERSATION THAT WE'VE HAD HERE TODAY, PROVIDE DIRECTION TO THE STAFF, TO THE EXTENT THAT THE, UM, WHATEVER FUNDING COMES IN, WHATEVER SMALL INCREMENTS, OVER A FAIRLY LONG PERIOD OF TIME, OUR FIRST TARGETED TIER, THE SPECIFIC REASON WHY WE'RE GETTING THE MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHICH IS IN THE CAL STATION.

AND THEN, UM, I GUESS WE PROBABLY NEED TO EMOTION

[00:50:01]

OF SOME SORT TO MOVE THIS ALONG.

UM, SO I CAN JUST SAY THAT WE UNDERSTAND THE INTENT OF THE BOARD AND WE CAN, WE CAN, UH, LOOK AT THOSE FUNDING THAT WAY.

OBVIOUSLY THE FIRST FEW YEARS WHERE WE DIRECTLY TO THE STATION ITSELF, UH, BE CLEAR $200,000 A YEAR IS AN INCREDIBLY SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY IN OUR WORLD.

AND THERE'LL BE, I CAN'T THINK OF ACTUALLY ANYTHING RELATED TO THE STATION ITSELF THAT WE WOULD EVER HAVE A $200,000 OR LESS, BUT WE FULLY UNDERSTAND THE SENTIMENT.

AND SO WE THINK THE RESOLUTION IS WRITTEN, COVER COVERS WHAT WE'RE AFTER AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR POINT OF VIEW, UH, YEARS WHEN THE STATION IS DONE, WE CAN LOOK THROUGH THE LENS TO SAY, IS THERE ANYTHING AT THAT STATION, UH, ITSELF THAT IS SOME TYPE OF APPROVEMENT THAT THOSE DOLLARS COULD BE USED FOR OTHERWISE, THEY WOULD OBVIOUSLY GO INTO THE ANNUALIZED BUDGET TO BE USED, UH, JUST LIKE THE MONEY THAT IS BEING USED FOR THE STATION TODAY.

IF THAT, IF THAT WOULD KIND OF TIES IT ALL TOGETHER.

I'M SORRY.

REMEMBER KITCHEN.

UM, OKAY.

I, I HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, AND I HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, CHAIR, IN TERMS OF THE CONCERNS ABOUT AMENDING A CONTRACT.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST THAT WE CAPTURE THE INTENT IN THE RESOLUTION ITSELF.

SO WE COULD ADD SOMETHING TO THE END OF THE FIRST PARAGRAPH THAT JUST SAYS, WHAT IS THE INTENT TO PRIORITIZE USE OF FUNDS FOR THE BENEFIT OF SERVICES TO MCCALLA PLAY STATION, UH, HOPEFULLY THAT, UH, UH, HOPEFULLY THAT WOULD CAPTURE THE INTENT THAT WAS JUST SHARED WITH US IN TERMS OF THE BROADER PICTURE.

SO IT WOULD SAY SOMETHING LIKE AND RECOMMENDED TRANSIT RELATED FACILITIES TO BE PAID IN EQUAL INSTALLMENTS OVER A 15 YEAR PERIOD WITH THE INTENT TO PRIORITIZE USE OF FUNDS FOR THE BENEFIT OF SERVICES TO MCCALLA, PLAYSTATION AND CHAIR.

I WOULD GO EVEN FURTHER TO REFER Y'ALL TO PAGE TWO, PACKET PAGE 22, JUST ON THE RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE RESOLUTION, THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, THE SECOND PARAGRAPH UNDER THERE, YOU'LL SEE AGAIN, TWO LITTLE, I, THE $3 MILLION PAID AN EQUAL INSTALLMENTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF HELPING TO DEFRAY KEPT METRO'S COSTS AND EXPENSES IN CONNECTION WITH THE DESIGN CONSTRUCTION AND PERMITTING OF THE MCCALLA PLACE RAIL STATION.

AND THAT, UM, SO I THINK THAT'S, THAT'S THE PIECE THAT I'M, THAT I'M FOCUSING ON.

NOT I'VE GOTTEN A LITTLE LOST AS TO EXACTLY WHAT OUR MOTION SHOULD SAY, ASHLEY, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE, I WOULD SUGGEST MAYBE MY ONLY SUGGESTION AGAIN, IS THAT WE HAVE A POLICY DEBATE WITH RESPECT TO THE RESOLUTION WE'RE PUTTING OUT 20, SOME ODD MILLION DOLLARS.

WE'RE GETTING A PITTANCE BACK.

UH, IT SEEMS TO ME CAP METRO WILL HAVE GIVEN ALL IT NEEDS TO GIVE TO MUKALLA STATION.

AND, UH, WE OUGHT TO HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY TO USE THE DOLLARS 15 YEARS FROM NOW.

HOWEVER WE WANT TO USE THE DOLLARS THAT WOULD BE WHERE I WOULD WANT TO BE.

I LIKE THE ORIGINAL RESOLUTION AS IT IS.

CAUSE I THINK IT GIVES US THAT FLEXIBILITY.

AND THAT'S THE PURVIEW OF THIS BOARD.

OTHERS MAY FEEL DIFFERENTLY.

AND I GUESS TWO OF YOU DO, BUT I'M IN FAVOR OF US JUST GETTING THE MONEY BACK.

IF I MAY CHAIR, I GUESS IT MUST JUST BE OUR, OUR ASSUMPTION ABOUT FACILITIES DOES CAP METRO AND IT'S, UH, MAINTENANCE AND, UH, IT'S MAINTENANCE OF ITS FACILITIES ONCE THEY'RE BUILT OR DO YOU HAVE ONGOING MAINTENANCE AND, UM, OPERATIONS SURROUNDING EVERY BUS STOP AND STADIUM, I MEAN, UH, RAIL STATION, BUT WE, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A FEDERAL MANDATE TO KEEP OUR ASSETS IN GOOD REPAIR AND OKAY.

UM, SO DIFFERENT THINGS WILL DEPRECIATE AND DECLINED AT DIFFERENT TIMES.

AND WE MAY NEED TO FIX A BUS STOP IN EAST AUSTIN MORE THAN WE NEED TO FRESHEN THE PAIN AT THE MCKELLA STATION IN THAT FUTURE BOARDS THAT SEEMS TO BE, SHOULD HAVE THAT FLEXIBILITY.

WELL, MONEY BEING FUNGIBLE THE WAY IT IS IF 200,000 WERE DEPOSITED TOWARD THE MCCALLA PLACE, RAIL STOP IN 2035, THEN MONEY FROM GENERAL REVENUES WOULD NOT BE TAKEN NEED.

WOULDN'T BE NEEDED TO BE TAKEN OUT IN ORDER TO MAKE SOME REPAIRS THERE.

AND THOSE MONIES COULD BE USED FOR, UM, UH, A STOP SOMEWHERE ELSE.

MR. CHAIR, UH, POINT OF ORDER, IS THERE AN ACTUAL MOTION? IS THERE AN ACTUAL MOTION ON THE FLOOR WITH A SECOND MOTION ON THE FLOOR? SUCH, DID YOU WANT TO MAKE ONE OR REMEMBER PULL? YOU WANT TO MAKE THE MOTION AND THEN WE CAN START FROM THAT.

I'D MAKE THE MOTION TO APPROVE THE RESOLUTION THAT'S ON OUR PACKET PAGE 23 WITH, UM, THE ADDITION OF THE PHRASE THAT IS ON PACKET PAGE 22, FOR THE PURPOSE OF HELPING TO

[00:55:01]

DEFRAY CAP MATTRESS COSTS AND EXPENSES IN CONNECTION WITH THE DESIGN CONSTRUCTION AND PERMITTING OF MCCULLOUGH PLACE.

MR. CHAIR, POINT OF ORDER, WE'D HAVE TO CONSIDER THE AMENDMENT BEFORE WE COULD CONSIDER THE FINAL MOTION OR MOTION.

OH, OKAY.

JUST WANTED TO CLICK, SORRY.

IT SOUNDED LIKE YOU WERE MIXING.

SO I THINK SHE'S TRYING TO GET THE MOTION.

I GOT YOU.

I DIDN'T GET THE, JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE KEEPING ASHLEY HONEST OVER THERE.

I'M OKAY WITH THAT LANGUAGE.

THE EMOTION IS AS INCLUDED IN THE PACKET ON PAGE 23.

UM, AND I THINK IT WOULD BE A NEW SUBPART THREE ASHLEY FOLLOW ALONG CAREFULLY AND MAKE SURE I DON'T MESS THIS UP, BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE A NEW SUBPART THREE UNDER THE FIRST WHEREAS CLAUSE TO SAY FOR THE PURPOSE OF HELPING TO DEFRAG CAT METRO'S COST AND EXPENSES AND CONNECTION WITH THE DESIGN, COMMA, CONSTRUCTION, AND PERMITTING TO THE MCCALLA PLACE RAIL STATION, I WOULD JUST KEEP IT AS PART OF SUBPAR TO, AND PUT THE COMMA THERE AND FOLLOW MIMIC PATIENTS TOO.

SO IT GOES WITH THE $3 MILLION.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT REMEMBER POOLE WAS TRYING TO SAY.

SO THAT'S THE MOTION.

IS THERE A SECOND REMEMBER KITCHEN WITH THE SECOND? ANY, UH, COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS DEBATE VERY WELL.

UH, REMEMBER KITCHEN.

OKAY.

IT JUST MAKES SENSE TO ME.

ALL WE'RE DOING IS PICKING UP THE LANGUAGE THAT'S IN THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND REFLECTING IT IN THE RESOLUTION.

SO IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THAT MAKES SENSE, UM, THAT IS CAPTURES THE INTENT AND YOU KNOW, OR AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS IN THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY.

SO WE'RE JUST PICKING UP THAT LINE.

YEAH.

I'M OKAY WITH THIS LANGUAGE BECAUSE I DON'T THINK IT BINDS A FUTURE BOARD.

I THINK IT'S SAYING WE'RE PUTTING OUT A BUNCH OF MONEY AND THEY'RE GIVING US SOME OF IT BACK AND FUTURE BOARDS WE'LL FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH IT AS NEEDS AS THEY DETERMINE THE NEEDS.

SO I'M IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION IS DRAFTED STRAIGHT.

I, I WOULDN'T SAY MR. CHAIRMAN THAN IT DID, IT DOES ALIGN WHAT THE INTENT AND THE PACKET WAS WITH THE ACTUAL RESOLUTION TO MERGE THE LANGUAGES SO THAT THEY'RE MORE CLEAR TOGETHER.

AND I'M OKAY WITH THAT CALL THE QUESTION VERY WELL, ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, PLEASE INDICATE BY SAYING AYE.

AYE.

ANY OPPOSED? NAY MOTION CARRIES SIX TO ZERO.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SHARMILA.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY.

AND NEXT STEP, THAT WAS THE, THAT WAS THE AMENDMENT.

NO, THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL MOTION.

THAT WAS THOUGHT.

THAT WAS THE, THAT WAS THE AMENDMENT THAT WASN'T THE, WE'VE GOT TO REMEMBER.

POOL MADE A MOTION THAT HAD LANGUAGE THAT WAS DIFFERENT FROM DRAFTED IN THE PAST.

RIGHT.

THAT WAS THE AMENDMENT TO THE ORIGINAL DRAFT.

AND THEN DON'T WE STILL HAVE TO APPROVE THE MOTION ITSELF.

NO, NO, NO.

ACTUALLY DO YOU FEEL LIKE WE'RE GOOD.

OKAY.

AND IF WE WANT TO TAKE, I GET YOUR POINT THAT WE NEED TO TAKE THE VOTE ON THE AMENDMENT AND THEN THE, OKAY.

WE ATTACHED AN AMENDMENT THAT WE AMENDED THE RIZZO.

IS IT, THERE WAS ONLY ONE MOTION.

THE MOTION TOOK THE LANGUAGE IN THE PACKET AND ADDED A PHRASE THAT WAS THE OFFICIAL MOTION.

OKAY.

I GOTCHA NOW.

OKAY.

I UNDERSTAND.

CAUSE THE, THE, THE MO THERE WAS NOT EMOTION ALREADY ON THE TAPE.

I UNDERSTAND THAT.

OKAY.

THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL EMOTION.

JUST HAD A DISC.

FAIR ENOUGH.

GOT IT.

NOW WITH THOSE WILLIAMS, IT'S JUST WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE GET BACK TOGETHER IN PERSON, RIGHT.

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE DID A MOTION, SHALL WE? YEAH, WE CAN SHUT OFF, UH, BOARD MEMBERS.

WE CAN SHUT OFF OUR TEAMS MEETING POS, NOT GOING TO JOIN US.

SO THANK YOU OR BREAKING ALL KINDS OF NEW GROUND HERE, KNOCKING THE DUST OFF.

[V.2. Approval of updates to the Capital Metro Code of Ethics.]

ALL RIGHT.

OUR NEXT ACTION ITEM IS APPROVAL OF UPDATES TO THE CODE OF ETHICS, OUR NEW GENERAL COUNSEL, ASHLEY GLANCER WITH THE MOTION.

HI, GOOD AFTERNOON.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE EVERYBODY IN PERSON.

SO IN YOUR BOARD PACKET, I AM ON PAGE 50, AND THIS IS A SMALL AMENDMENT TO OUR CODE OF ETHICS, REVOLVING OUR RE INVOLVING OUR REVOLVING DOOR POLICIES.

SO, AND YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PAGE.

YOU'LL SEE.

NUMBER SEVEN, WE ARE CHANGING THIS TO READ THE, THE CENTER FOR THE LIFE OF THE CONTRACT OR FORMER EMPLOYEE OR A FORMER BURDEN MORE MEMBER WOULD BE, UM, PROHIBITED FROM PARTICIPATING IN THE CONTRACT FOR TWO YEARS.

AND THIS WOULD ONLY APPLY TO A

[01:00:01]

FORMER BOARD MEMBER OR EMPLOYEE THAT ACTUALLY WAS INVOLVED IN THE RECOMMENDATION, A BID PROPOSAL OR SOLICITATION OF THE CONTRACT.

SO THIS WOULD JUST CHANGE IT FROM THE LIFE OF THE CONTRACT TO TWO YEARS.

QUESTIONS FOR ASHLEY.

REMEMBER KITCHEN, GO AHEAD.

UM, I W I THINK WE HAD SOME CONVERSATION WHEN THIS WAS PRESENTED.

I WAS TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ITEM SIX AND NUMBER SEVEN, OR ACTUALLY THE RATIONALE CAUSE ITEM NUMBER SIX IS ONE YEAR IN
