YOU JUST GO RIGHT INTO THE FIRST SPEAKER, CRAIG CHAIR, COMMISSIONER LAYS ON IT VERUS I WILL HEAR THE TESTIMONY FROM THOSE WISHING TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION AT THIS TIME AT ONE MINUTE EACH, AND WE'LL BEGIN WITH A PRESENTATION AND I'LL NAME THE FIVE SPEAKERS, AND THEY'LL CONTINUOUSLY PROVIDE THE REMARKS TO THIS PRESENTATION.

SO SPEAKERS, I LISTEN FOR YOUR NAME AND THEN JUST, UH, WHEN IT'S YOUR TIME TO SPEAK, JUST FOLLOW THE NEXT SPEAKER.

I HAVE MICHAEL GARDENY HARRISON HUDSON, MELISSA NETHERLAND, JAKE EBERT, MICHAEL WHALEN.

UM, AND IF YOU LET ME KNOW WHEN THE PRESENTATION IS UP, THIS IS MICHAEL GAZANIAN AND I'LL KICK US OFF.

I SEE THE COVER SEAT.

OKAY, PERFECT.

EVERYBODY SHARE COMMISSIONERS, MICHAEL GATHERING ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT TODAY, I'LL ANSWER A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS AND MISCONCEPTIONS REGARDING THE CASE SPECIFICALLY, WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE FOR GROWTH IN OUR CORRIDORS, WHETHER BURNET IS APPROPRIATE FOR THIS GROWTH AND WHETHER ONE ADDITIONAL STORY IS APPROPRIATE.

SO FIRST OFF, WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE FOR GROWTH IN OUR CORRIDORS? ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS OUR CITY PLANS CALL FOR CORRIDOR GRIP IS TO PROVIDE HOUSING OPTIONS FOR ALL SNAKES AND DIFFERENT MEMES AND BACKGROUNDS.

HERE.

YOU CAN SEE HOW THAT WORKS IN PRACTICE AVERAGE, MONTHLY HOUSING COSTS IN THE CRESTVIEW NEIGHBORHOOD ARE 41% WHEN WE'RE FOR WINTERS.

AND THIS HELPS EXPAND THE HOUSING OPTIONS FOR A BROAD RANGE OF RESIDENTS OF DIFFERENT MEANS BACKGROUNDS.

FOR INSTANCE, A REGULAR HOUSEHOLDS IN CRESTVIEW ARE 2.4 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE A HOUSEHOLD INCOME LESS THAN 50,000 AND ARE 2.4 MORE LIKELY TO BE NONWHITE.

UH, SO CARTER PROJECTS ARE IMPORTANT.

THE CITY'S STRATEGY FOR MAKING SURE THAT HOUSING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE ACROSS THE SPECTRUM, UH, BUT IS BURNET ROAD AN APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR ONE ADDITIONAL STORY THAT WE'RE PROPOSING IN THIS REQUEST.

AND FOR THAT I'LL HAND IT OFF TO HARRISON HUDSON.

HERE'S AN HUDSON ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT.

THE CITY HAS CONSISTENTLY DESIGNATED BURNET ROAD AS A MAJOR CORRIDOR WHERE ADDITIONAL GROWTH IS APPROPRIATE.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE FOR THEM.

FURTHERMORE, THE CITY HAS MADE SIGNIFICANT INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS IN SUPPORTING BURNET ROAD GROWTH WITH AN AMBITIOUS 53 MILLION PLAN.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, IN ADDITION TO THIS WORK, THE CITY REQUIRES NEW PROJECTS LIKE 71 13 BURDENS TO MAKE PRIVATE INVESTMENTS IN INFRASTRUCTURE, WHICH HELPS CITY DOLLARS GO FURTHER 71 13 BURNET.

WE CONTRIBUTE TO THIS EFFORT BY PROVIDING A NEW PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY STREETSCAPE WITH A WIDE SIDEWALK STREET TREES, OUR PORTION OF BURNET CORRIDOR PLAN IMPROVEMENTS AND FUNDING FOR CITY PARKS OR REDUCING VEHICLE TRIP AND IMPERVIOUS COVER A PROJECT WOULD ALSO MEANINGFULLY INCREASE ANNUAL CITY REVENUES, SUPPORTING GENERAL FUND DEPARTMENTS, SUCH AS OUR PARKS AND LIBRARIES, AS WELL AS ACD PUBLIC WORKS CODE IN AUSTIN RESOURCE RECOVERY.

OVERALL, THIS AMOUNTS TO A ROUGHLY 477% INCREASE OVER CURRENT SITE REVENUES.

AND IMPORTANTLY, THE PROPERTY TAX INCREASES ENTIRELY EXEMPTED FROM STATE IMPOSED PROPERTY TAX CAP.

SO THIS ADDITIONAL INCREMENT OF GROWTH SUPPORT CITY HOUSING GOALS AND INFRASTRUCTURE EFFORTS, BUT IS IT APPROPRIATE AT THIS LOCATION FOR THAT? I WILL HAND IT OFF TO MELISSA MUSLIN HERE.

YOU CAN SEE HOW THE ADDITIONAL TYPE WAS.

WE ACHIEVED THE CLOSEST SINGLE FAMILY LOT.

THIS SHOWS THE ALLOWABLE HEIGHT ENVELOPE AND THE ARROW DENOTES THE LOCATION WHERE WE WILL BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE OUR ADDITIONAL STORY, WHICH IS MORE THAN A FOOTBALL FIELD LINK AWAY FROM THAT CLOSEST SINGLE FAMILY LOT LINE.

BUT THAT IS THE DISTANCE FROM THE CLOSEST SINGLE FAMILY LIFE HERE.

YOU CAN SEE THE DISTANCE FROM OUR REAR LOT LINE, OR IN OTHER WORDS, THE HEIGHT IN RELATION TO MOST OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, AS YOU CAN SEE THE STEP-UPS AND ALLOWABLE HEIGHT IS VERY GRADUAL AND MAINTAIN FULL COMPATIBILITY.

I ALSO WANTED TO BE ABLE TO PUT ALL OF THIS INTO MORE HUMAN TERMS AND TERMS. AND FORTUNATELY, I WAS ABLE TO FIND AN EXAMPLE OF SIMILAR HEIGHTS JUST OUTSIDE THE SOUTHERN END OF BRENTWOOD.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD SOUTH

[00:20:01]

OF CRESTVIEW.

THE PROPERTY IS A BIT COLOR ADC RATHER THAN 75 FEET, BUT IT PUTS THE CONVERSATION ABOUT ADDITIONAL HEIGHT AND REAL TERM.

THIS IMAGE SHOWS THE DISTANCE IT WOULD TAKE TO GET TO THE 75 FEET AT SEVEN ONE, ONE THREE BURNET.

IF YOU'RE STANDING AT THE REAR PROPERTY LINE, AS YOU CAN SEE, THE ADDITIONAL HEIGHT WOULD BE A SIGNIFICANT DISTANCE FROM MOST OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WOULD HAVE MINIMAL PRESENCE TO INTERNAL NEIGHBORHOOD AREAS.

NOW I WILL HAND IT OFF TO JAY PIPER COMMISSIONER.

THIS IS JAY KIBERA WITH STRATUS PROPERTIES.

THIS IMAGE SHOWS A DISTANCE.

IT WOULD TAKE TO GET TO THE 75 FEET AT 71 13 BURNETT.

IF YOU'RE STANDING IN THE BACKYARD, THE CLOSEST SINGLE FAMILY, LOT, AS YOU CAN SEE, AND IT'S STILL A SIGNIFICANT DISTANCE AWAY ALSO, AND THESE IMAGES, THE INTERVENING SPACE IS UNOBSTRUCTED, BUT IN REALITY, WE HAVE COMMITTED TO INSTALLING 10 TO 12 FOOT TREES ALONG THE SINGLE FAMILY PROPERTY LINES, WHICH WILL THEN CONTINUE TO GROW TALLER EACH YEAR.

IN THIS IMAGE, MICHAEL IS HOLDING A 10 FOOT POLE OF THE APPROXIMATE PROPERTY LINE.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THE ADDITIONAL HEIGHT FAR FROM BEING IMPOSING WILL BE WELL OBSCURED BY THIS TREE BUFFER FINALLY, THE VIEW OF, UH, OF THE ADDITIONAL STORY, BUT ALSO BE OBSCURED BY THE SHORTER PARTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT.

THE FIRST PORTION OF THE BUILDING IS LIMITED UNDER COMPATIBILITY TO 30 FEET SHORTER THAN WHAT A SINGLE FAMILY HOME AT A SIMILAR LOCATION COULD BE.

FORTUNATELY, THERE'S A ROUGHLY 25 FOOT BUILDING ABOUT THE SAME DISTANCE AWAY AS OUR 30 FOOT TALL PORTION WOULD BE IDENTIFIED BY THE ORANGE AREAS.

AND WHEN YOU STAND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE 25 FOOT BUILDING AND LOOK UP AT THE 80, 80 FOOT ONE, YOU CANNOT SEE IT.

THE 80 FOOT BUILDING IS BACK THERE, BUT IT'S COMPLETELY OBSTRUCTED BY THE SMALLER STRUCTURE.

AGAIN, THIS APPROXIMATES, WHAT SOMEONE LOOKING AT THE SHORTEST PORTION OF OUR BUILDING WOULD AND WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SEE.

IT WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SEE OUR ADDITIONAL HEIGHT UP ON BURNET ROAD.

NOW I'LL HAND IT OFF TO MICHAEL WHALEN.

SO THIS IS A POLICY DECISION BEFORE YOU WHETHER TO LEVERAGE ONE ADDITIONAL STORY IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THESE OUTCOMES, AFFORDABLE UNITS IN A HIGH OPPORTUNITY AREA WITH COMPATIBLE HEIGHT, CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENTS, AND INCREASED CITY REVENUES, AS WELL AS LOWER IMPERVIOUS COVER, LOWER USE INTENSITY AND LOWER VEHICLE TRIP INTENSITY.

ULTIMATELY, THIS IS WHAT THE CASE BOILS DOWN TO.

AND AS A REMINDER, THIS PROJECT WOULD OFFER THE FIRST INCOME RESTRICTED UNITS IN CRESTVIEW, A HIGH OPPORTUNITY AREA, AND WOULD ROUGHLY PROVIDE DOUBLE THE AVERAGE ANNUAL AFFORDABLE UNIT PRODUCTION ALONG BURNET ROAD.

SO TO RECAP, CORRIDOR PROJECTS HELP THE CITY ACHIEVE ITS VISION OF PROVIDING HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESIDENTS OF DIFFERENT MEANS.

AND BACKGROUND BURNET ROAD IS AN APPROPRIATE LOCATION FOR GROWTH IN PROJECTS LIKE 71 13 BURNET ARE CRITICAL TO HELPING THE CITY BUILD OUT THE CORRIDORS INFRASTRUCTURE, 71 13 BURNETTS INCREMENT OF GROWTH.

THE ONE ADDITIONAL STORY IS FULLY COMPATIBLE AND IS LOCATED OVER A FOOTBALL FIELD LENGTH AWAY FROM THE CLOSEST SINGLE FAMILY HOME.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONSIDERATION.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UH, LOOKING AT THE LIST HERE, UM, HELP ME OUT.

I HAD ON THE LIST FOR SPEAKING FOR ALSO A TANNER BLAIR AND, UH, DANIELLE, UH, REGAL, OR ARE YOU JUST LISTED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OR DID YOU WANT TO SPEAK, THIS IS TANNER.

OKAY.

DID YOU WISH TO HAVE A MINUTE TO SPEAK? SURE.

OKAY.

YOU HAVE ONE GOOD EVENING.

MY NAME'S STANDARD BLAIR.

I LIVED NEAR THE SITE AND I CALLED LAST WEEK TO TELL YOU WHY I PERSONALLY SUPPORT ADDING HOUSING HERE, BUT I WANTED TO SHARE A PETITION THAT I STARTED THIS FRIDAY OR LAST FRIDAY, I SUPPOSE THEN AS OF THIS MEETING HAS 111 SIGNATURES, UH, THE SIGNED ON TO UPDATING THE SITE TO MSA, TO HELP OUT, TO HELP THE CITY MEET ITS HOUSING TRANSIT AND CLIMATE GOALS.

I'LL SAY THE PETITION LANGUAGE.

I SENT IT TO YOU IN AN EMAIL, BUT YOU CAN CHECK IT LATER, BUT THEY ALSO HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE COMMENTS ON THE, AND I'M GOING TO READ IT, MANY OF THEM UNTIL YOU CUT ME OFF, IT MAKES SENSE.

UH, SOMEONE SAID, I LIVE OFF OF BURNETT AND I BIKED BY THIS VACANT LOT ON AN ANTI COMMERCIAL SPACE.

OFTEN, THIS IS THE PERFECT LOCATION TO BOTH BOOST AUSTIN'S AFFORDABLE HOUSING OBJECTIVES AND REVITALIZE THIS PART OF BURNET WITH MORE RESIDENTS FREQUENT THE BUSINESSES IN THE AREA.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A WIN FOR HOUSING BUSINESS AND MAINTAIN IT.

THE BEAUTY OF THIS AREA.

UH, SOMEONE ELSE.

WHEN I LIVED IN CRESTVIEW, I USED TO THINK ABOUT HOW THE SITE COULD BE USED FOR SO MUCH MORE.

NOW I LIVE JUST A BIT NORTH OF HERE AND, UM, AND I HOPE SOMEDAY TO BE ABLE TO MOVE A BIT FURTHER SOUTH.

AGAIN, WE DESPERATELY NEED HOUSING, PLEASE APPROVE THIS PLAN AND THEIR ZONING.

UH, I LIVE IN CRESTVIEW CLOSE TO THIS LOT.

THIS WILL BE A BIG IMPROVEMENT ON THE CURRENT SITE AND MAKE MY WALKS ON BURNET, MUCH MORE PLEASANT.

UH, WE NEED AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN AUSTIN AND HOUSING.

THE IS TO AMENITIES.

UH, MORE DENSITY, MORE MEANS MORE PEOPLE CAN

[00:25:01]

FIND A PLACE TO LIVE.

WE ASKED FOR MORE HOUSING AT CENTRAL LESSON.

UH, SOMEONE ELSE SAYS I'M CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT THAT I GET MAILED FOR THIS NOTIFICATION TO GET MAILED NOTIFICATIONS ABOUT IT.

UH, PLEASE.

YES.

IN MY BACKYARD.

OKAY.

RIGHT.

THAT'S A MINUTE, SIR.

I'M SORRY.

SUPPORT.

WHEN WE NEED HOUSING, PLEASE PUT IT HERE IN A HIGH OPPORTUNITY AREA.

ALL RIGHT.

UH, I HAVE DANIELLE, IS IT, UH, REGAL? HI.

YES.

IT'S DANIEL.

HOW DO YOU SAY YOUR LAST NAME AGAIN? NO, I THINK WE LOST YOU.

UH, YES.

IT'S DANIEL REGAL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

YES, YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS.

UH, I HAVE MY SEVEN MONTH OLD BABY WITH ME.

SO YOU MAY HEAR HER EXPRESSING HER OPINIONS IN THE BACKGROUND.

I HAVE BEEN AN AUSTINITE SINCE 2005, AND I CURRENTLY SERVE ON THE AUSTIN PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY COUNCIL, AS WELL AS THE BICYCLE ADVISORY COUNCIL.

I'M SPEAKING TONIGHT IN MY PERSONAL CAPACITY, I WANTED TO EXPRESS MY SUPPORT FOR THE HOUSING PROJECT PROPOSED FOR SEVEN 71 13 BURNET RAID AUSTIN IS FACING A SERIOUS HOUSING SHORTAGE AND AN AFFORDABILITY CRISIS.

THIS PROJECT WOULD HELP ADDRESS BOTH PROBLEMS BY PROVIDING 330 NEW UNITS AND CREATING 33 DESIGNATED FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

UM, BURNETT ROAD ALSO MAKES A LOT OF SENSE FOR THIS PROJECT.

UM, IT'S AN IMAGINE AUSTIN CORRIDOR AND A TRANSIT PRIORITY PRIORITY NETWORK CORRIDOR.

ANNOTATED IS VERY WALKABLE AND BIKEABLE BY WALK.

SCORE IS EXACTLY WHERE WE NEED TO BUILD MORE HOUSING.

UM, I'VE TRAVELED ON BURNET ROAD NUMEROUS TIMES ON FOOT IN A CAR, ON A BICYCLE AND ON THE BUS.

I BELIEVE THIS WOULD ADD TREMENDOUS VALUE TO THE CORRIDOR AS WELL, TO AS WELL TO THE GREATEST GREATER AUSTIN COMMUNITY.

UM, THANK YOU FOR TAKING FOR LONG, MAYBE TO TALK TONIGHT, HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.

OKAY.

THAT CONCLUDES OUR SPEAKERS, UH, IN FAVOR.

AND NOW WE'LL START.

THOSE THAT ARE OPPOSED.

AND FIRST ON THE LIST IS BRAD RUSSELL FOLLOWED BY CHIP HARRIS.

UH, MR. RUSSELL'S STAR SIX TO UNMUTE.

HEY, THIS IS BRAD ROSS.

HELLO? CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, I CAN PLEASE.

UH, YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE.

OKAY.

GOT IT.

THE BACK OF MY PROPERTY, ABUTS, THE DEVELOPMENT PROPERTY, I REPRESENT THE RESIDENCE OF PARTY CIRCLE AND HARDY DRIVE.

AS I MENTIONED AT THE PREVIOUS HEARING, THE RESIDENTS OF HARDY CIRCLE AND HARDY DRIVE ARE GOING TO BE MOST NEGATIVELY AFFECTED BY THIS DEVELOPMENT DUE TO BEING LOCATED ADJACENT TO THE PROPERTY TOPICS OF CONCERN FOR RESIDENTS, OUR HEIGHT AND COMPATIBILITY WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN TRAFFIC INTO THE STREETS OF CRESTVIEW, PRIVACY, NOISE, SAFETY OF RESIDENTS, SAFETY OF ONLY HAVING ONE TRAFFIC LIGHT FOR INGRESS AND EGRESS TO BURNET ROAD AND REZONING PRECEDENTS THAT WOULD BE ESTABLISHED IN THIS AREA WITH THIS APPROVAL.

THE RESIDENTS AND PARTY CIRCLE IN HARDY DRIVE HAVE AGREED UPON TERMS OF A RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

AT THIS TIME.

IT HAS NOT BEEN FILED WITH THE COUNTY YET, BUT WE HAVE AGREED THAT IT WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE BEEN FILED WITH THE COUNTY BEFORE THE FIRST READING OF CITY COUNCIL.

OUR UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THIS RESTRICTIVE COVENANT IS CONTINGENT SOLELY UPON THE MF SIX PROPOSAL BEING APPROVED AS REQUESTED BY THE DEVELOPER.

THIS MEANS FOR EXAMPLE, THAT IF THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND CITY COUNCIL ONLY AGREES TO MF FOUR OR ADDS CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS TO MS SIX, THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT WILL BE VOID AND THE BENEFICIARIES WILL BE LEFT UNPROTECTED.

THEREFORE, OUR CONCERN AT THIS POINT IS THAT THE PROJECT WILL BE APPROVED WITH CONDITIONS THAT WILL VOID THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AND THE PROJECT WILL BE BUILT.

ANYWAY, WE HAVE BEEN TOLD BY THE DEVELOPER THAT THEY'RE ONLY INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING IS ENOUGH.

SIX IS ACHIEVED UNCONDITIONALLY.

SO WE ARE AWARE OF THE REALITY THAT THEY OR SOMEONE ELSE COULD JUST CONTINUE WITH THE PROJECT, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS APPROVED.

SO BE CLEAR IF YOU APPROVE ANYTHING OTHER THAN MS. SIX, THE RESIDENTS DON'T HAVE PROTECTION FROM MERCY COVENANT.

THANKS.

AND I WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

WE THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

THE NEXT SPEAKER IS TIM HARRIS.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER.

HELLO.

I HEAR YOU GO AHEAD.

I'D LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT A COMMENT FROM MY PRESENTATION AT THE LAST MEETING AND JUST SAY THE CITY PLANNING GUIDELINES STATE THAT MAY BE APPLIED TO USE YOUR COMMERCIAL FACILITIES.

AN AREA ADJACENT TO THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT ARE A MAJOR INSTITUTIONAL OUR EMPLOYMENT CENTER.

THIS PROPERTY FAILS TO MEET ANY OF THOSE CRITERIA

[00:30:01]

TO QUALIFY FOR I'M IN SUPPORT OF STAFF'S APPROPRIATE ALTERNATE RECOMMENDATION.

.

THANK YOU, TODD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UH, NEXT WE HAVE MIKE LIVING STAR SIX TO UNMUTE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS COMMISSIONERS.

CAN Y'ALL HEAR ME? YES, I DID.

YEAH.

ONE MINUTE.

ALL RIGHT.

GREAT.

ALL RIGHT.

I'M JUST GOING TO READ YOU THE LETTER THAT I SENT YOU ALL, BUT TO REITERATE IT ACROSS YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IS NOT TAKING AN OFFICIAL POSITION ON THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGES AT THIS TIME, DUE TO COVID ERA RULES REQUIRING A UNANIMOUS DECISION FOR SUCH A LETTER TO BE SENT.

THEREFORE, DESPITE MY ROLE AS PRESIDENT OF CUSTODY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, IN MY BELIEF THAT MY OPINION REPRESENTS A SUPER MAJORITY OF OUR EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEMBERS.

UM, THIS LETTER AND MY, MY STATEMENT HERE COMES TO YOU AS MY ROLE AS A PARTICIPANT IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH MR GARDENY AND THE RESIDENTS OF PARTY CIRCLE OVER THE LAST YEAR OR SO.

UM, ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, OF COURSE, OF THE FRONT OF THIS STRUCTURE NOT BE BUILT, UM, BORDERING SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES WOULD BE TALLER THAN 55 FEET.

I RECOGNIZE THAT IN AN UPPER TO THIS CHUNK OF DENSITY, THE TRANSIT CORRIDOR INSTRUCTORS WILL BE HIGHER TO ACCOMMODATE MORE UNITS AND ADDITIONAL AFFORDABLE UNITS.

I WANT TO, UH, MAKE SURE THAT THE HEARTY CIRCLE AGREEMENT RESTRICTIVE COVENANT IS ENFORCED.

AND, UM, MR. GODADDY HAS ENGAGED IN GOOD FAITH, UH, FAR WE'VE COME TO AN AGREEMENT IN PRINCIPLE WITH THE NEIGHBORS AND, UH, THAT DOCUMENTS THINGS CIRCULATED AS WE SPEAK.

UM, I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT PRECEDENT HERE THAT THE DEVELOPER HAS KEPT LINES OF COMMUNICATION OPEN, AND I APPRECIATE THAT THE, UH, COMPATIBILITY REQUESTS OF NEAREST NEIGHBORS ARE AGREED TO, AND JUST BECAUSE THEY COULD GET ENTITLEMENTS TO VOTE HIGHER, IT JUST, IT IS SUITABLE FOR THIS BLOCK.

AND THEY AGREE TO THAT FOR THESE REASONS.

I DON'T WANT TO STAY IN THE WAY THERE'S ON HER REQUESTS, THAT MY OPPOSITION TO THIS SHOULD PROBABLY NOT HAVE BEEN, SHOULD HAVE BEEN A FOUR, NOT AGAINST ON THE WITNESS LIST, BUT I THINK A NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, CENTRAL PURPOSE TO GIVE NEIGHBORS A STRONGER VOICE THAN THEY WOULD HAVE.

THEY STOOD ALONE.

I BELIEVE THE NEIGHBORS ON HARDY CIRCLE, I'VE GOTTEN A BETTER DEAL THAN THEY WOULD HAVE ON THEIR OWN.

AND I HOPE YOUR VOTE WILL HELP SECURE THEIR DEAL.

UM, AND I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT IT HAS BEEN NICE DEALING WITH DISREGARD GT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN LIKE THE STRUCTURAL OR SOMETHING.

IT'S JUST A, THE FRESH AIR, THOSE OF BIG, UH, YEAH, I MEAN, WE NEED TO GO AHEAD.

UH, WE'RE PAST OUR MINUTE.

UH, SO I NEED TO GO TO THE NEXT SPEAKER.

THANK YOU.

I SAID MY PLEASE.

THANKS.

THANK YOU.

UH, WE HAVE BARBARA MACARTHUR NEXT.

HI, MY NAME IS BRYAN SPEAKING FOR BRENTWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

GO.

YEAH, I'M SORRY.

I COULDN'T HEAR YOU.

SORRY TO INTERRUPT.

OKAY.

MY NAME IS BARBARA MACARTHUR SPEAKING FOR BRENTWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION STEERING COMMITTEE LOCATED DIRECTLY SOUTH OF CREST IS GRANTING MS. SIX AT 90 FEET WOULD PROVIDE SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO THIS OWNER, SETTING UP MY PRECEDENT FOR ALL OF THE PROPERTIES THAT ROAD FROM 45TH TO ANDERSON LANE.

IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE.

MID-BLOCK ON THE TRACK.

IT'S ONLY SAFE ACCESS TO BURNETT ROAD THROUGH IT'S THROUGH A RECIPROCAL ACCESS AGREEMENT.

THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION OF MFO WITH COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS IS MORE APPROPRIATE FOR THIS SITE AND BRENTWOOD WE'RE SUPPORTING AND LOOKING FORWARD TO TWO NEW LARGE PROJECTS THAT WILL PROVIDE AROUND 600 UNITS.

AND FOR YOU IT'S DOABLE.

AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION IN EARLY 20, 20 COA DEMOGRAPHER ESTIMATED THERE 74,266 MULTIFAMILY UNITS IN THE PIPELINE UNDER CONSTRUCTION OR ITS SITE PLAN.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

UH, NEXT WE HAVE, UH, JOSEPH REYNOLDS STAR SIX 78 COMMISSIONERS.

I'M JOE REYNOLDS.

I LIVE ON WEST 49TH STREET.

I'M A MEMBER OF THE ALLENDALE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION ZONING LAND USE COMMITTEE.

I'M PREPARED TONIGHT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON THE INCREASED RISK CAUSED BY TRAFFIC FROM THE PROPOSED PROJECT.

I TALK TRAFFIC NOW BECAUSE THE NORMAL PERMIT PROCESS HAS TRAFFIC CONSIDERED THE TIME OF SITE PLAN APPROVAL.

AND THERE IS NO PUBLIC FORUM.

THEN FURTHER YOUR DECISION TONIGHT SINCE THE SCOPE VOLUME AND CHARACTER OF THE TRAFFIC THROUGH THE WRONG THING TONIGHT AND HUNDREDS OF CARS WITH DRIVERS FOCUSED ON GOING SOMEWHERE ELSE, WE'LL BE DRIVING ON NARROW NEIGHBORHOODS STREETS WITH KIDS AND PETS.

CARS WILL BE TURNING AROUND USING SOME HOUSE'S DRIVEWAY OR THEY WILL.

YOU TURN INTO AN INTERSECTION.

WE STUDIED ALL OF THIS WHEN WORKING ON THE BURNETT ROAD CORRIDOR PROJECT, I'M ALSO PREPARED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON THE NECESSARY HEIGHTS FOR THE PROPOSED PROJECT.

IN RESPONSE

[00:35:01]

TO MR. GUTTING, THESE PRESENTATIONS REPEATEDLY MENTIONED 340 APARTMENTS.

I DID A STRAIGHTFORWARD STUDY TO DETERMINE WHAT HEIGHT WAS NEEDED TO GET THE THREE 40.

I FOUND THAT 340 APARTMENTS AND PARKING FOR EACH OF THEM CAN BE DONE UNDER 40 FEET AT 50 FEET, AN EXTRA 85 LARGE TWO BEDROOM UNITS CAN BE ADDED.

AND AT 65 FEET, ANOTHER 64 LARGE THREE BEDROOMS I'VE SENT BACKGROUND AND HANDOUT MATERIALS ON BOTH TOPICS BEFORE THE MAY 25TH STATION AND ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC JUST THE OTHER DAY.

THANK YOU.

I'LL WAIT LATER FOR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UH, NEXT WE HAVE CANDACE, UH, RANKIN STAR SIX, EIGHT.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, I CAN PLEASE CONTINUE.

YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE.

YES.

THANK YOU.

CHAIRMAN AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION ON JAMES RANKEN, A RESIDENT OF DISTRICT SEVEN IN ALLENDALE, AND I SERVE ON THE ELLENDALE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION BOARD.

I'M SPEAKING FOR MYSELF TODAY AND I URGE YOU TO VOTE NO KNOWING THE MF SIX REQUESTS AND ADOPTED ZONING RECOMMENDATION MADE BY YOUR SENIOR PLANNER FOR THAT MODERATE DENSITY LEVEL, MS. FOR ZONING WOULD STILL BE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE ASM P AND IMAGINE AUSTIN CONCEPTS, THE HIGHEST DENSITY ZONING.

IT'S JUST NOT NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THOSE GOALS.

CONSIDERING THIS LOCATION AS A TOD SITE WOULD BE PREMATURE AND OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF THIS COMMISSION'S DECISION MAKING PROCESS.

THIS LOCATION IS NOT RIGHT FOR THAT KIND OF DESIGNATION BECAUSE THE BUS ROUTES AND SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE, AND THE RESOLUTION IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS.

THE APPLICATION IS AN EFFORT TO SET AN MARKER ON BURNET ROAD AND BUILD THE HIGHEST HOUSING DENSITY.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

UM, UH, NEXT WE HAVE RANDOMLY HIRSCH.

OH YES.

GREAT.

FROM THE SITE AND I FREQUENT THE SITE OFTEN I'M IN FAVOR OF THE CITY BATHS RECOMMENDATIONS OF THIS PROPERTY, REZONING IT TO .

THIS REZONING CASE IS ON YOUR, UM, IT, IT IS HERE TODAY.

I'M WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORTIVE AND EXCITED BY TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT ALONG THIS CONGESTED CONGESTED SECTION OF BURNETT ROAD.

THIS, IT IS GREAT THAT THIS EXISTING COMMERCIAL PROPERTY IS BEING SLIPPED AND WE'LL SEE FAMILY AND LIKE THE CITY STAFF, I DO NOT SUPPORT IN THAT STICK ZONING IN THIS LOCATION, UH, THAT THAT APPLICANT HAS REQUESTED TO ME, THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION OF WITH A CAP OF 60 FEET HEIGHTS IS THE MOST APPROPRIATE FOR THE PROPERTY.

CONSIDERING THE SURROUNDING DEVELOPMENT, PUTTING THIS PROPERTY IN A CALORIE CATEGORY WITH A HIGHER HEIGHT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO SPECULATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF LOWER BURNET ROAD PROPERTIES THAT BORDER FAMILY HOMES, AND WILL BE THE TALLEST BUILDINGS.

THIS IDEA OF MF BELONG IN THE DOMAIN.

IT BELONGS DOWNTOWN.

IT JUST DOESN'T BELONG ON THIS LOCATION IN BURNETT ROAD, PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING THE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS OF AND KEEP WITH THE RELATED DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA, SUPPORTING THE NEEDS THAT THE LOCALLY OWNED SMALL BUSINESSES AND THE FAMILIES LIVING ALONGSIDE THIS STRETCH OF BURNET ROAD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AND YOUR SERVICE FOR THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

THANK YOU.

AND THAT CONCLUDES THE SPEAKERS, UH, OPPOSING THIS ITEM.

WE'LL GO AHEAD.

AND, UM, I GUESS WE ALREADY CLOSED THE PUBLIC HEARING, SO I DON'T THINK I NEED TO DO THAT.

YES.

I GUESS WE DON'T HAVE THE APPLICANT REVITAL.

WE DID THAT LAST TIME.

YES.

AND I DON'T THINK I NEED THAT CLOSE TO PUBLIC HEARING CAUSE WE DID THAT LAST TIME.

ANDREW, CAN YOU CONFIRM THAT MR. RIVERA? SURE.

THAT IS CORRECT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

SO WE'RE GOING TO MOVE RIGHT INTO Q AND A, WHICH WE DIDN'T GET TO LAST TIME IF YOU REMEMBER, IT WAS REALLY LATE.

AND, UH, SO, UH, WHO HAS THE FIRST QUESTION? WE HAVE A QUESTION FROM COMMISSIONERS, COMMISSIONER, MOOSE TODDLER.

I THINK THIS IS A STAFF QUESTION I'M STILL LEARNING.

SO I APOLOGIZE WHEN, BECAUSE WE HAVE SINGLE FAMILY HOME AT THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY.

IS THAT GOING TO DICTATE THE COMPATIBILITY? IF I'M LEARNING THE LANGUAGE RIGHT ABOUT WHAT THE DEVELOPER CAN DO AND WHAT PROXIMITY, UM, IN TERMS OF HEIGHT, NO MATTER WHETHER WE DO AND THE FOUR MF SIX FOR THEM,

[00:40:03]

UM, COMMISSURES MARK GRAHAM, CITY STAFF, UH, RESPONDING TO THAT QUESTION.

YES.

THE PRESENCE OF SINGLE FAMILY ZONING OR USE, UM, WILL DICTATE THE HEIGHT, UM, FARMING COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS, WHETHER IT'S OKAY.

SO EVEN IF WE GIVE THEM MF SIX AND ALL OF THAT, THEY'RE GOING TO BE THERE, THEIR DEVELOPMENT PROJECT WOULD BE LIMITED INTO HOW FAR BACK THAT GOES.

I KNOW THEY PRESENTED THAT, BUT IT'S COME UP A COUPLE OF TIMES WE'VE TALKED ABOUT, WE CAN'T HOLD THE DEVELOPER TO THAT ONCE WE APPROVE IT, BUT THE COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS ARE GOING TO OVERRIDE THAT SO THAT THEY CAN'T HIT THAT.

SO THEY WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO HIT THAT, THAT HEIGHT RIGHT BACK BY THE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES.

IT WOULD BE AS THEY HAVE PRESENTED TO US CLOSER TO THE CORRIDOR.

YES.

THE COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS WILL KEEP THE HEIGHTS DOWN NEAR THE SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL, I BELIEVE BECAUSE THE APPLICANT HAS, UM, PUSHED THEIR HEIGHT EVEN FURTHER THAN THE COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS WOULD REQUIRE, PUSH IT FURTHER AWAY FROM THE SINGLE FAMILIES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OR SNYDER.

UH, SO, UH, I JUST WANT TO GET SOME CLARITY ABOUT THIS PROBABLY FROM STAFF, UM, AND, UH, APOLOGIZE.

UM, UH, I'M JUST NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND.

UH, SO THERE, IS THERE AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE APPLICANT AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD, OR IS THERE AS THE APPLICANT REVISED THEIR APPLICATION TO LIMIT HEIGHT TO 75 FEET AND TO DO THE OTHER THINGS THAT THE APPLICANT DESCRIBED IN THEIR, UM, BRIEF MINUTES THAT THEY HAD TODAY? MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT HOUSING EMPLOYMENT STAFF, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THERE IS A PRIVATE, RESTRICTIVE, COVENANT BEING NEGOTIATED THAT HAS THAT INFORMATION IN IT.

I'M I HAVE NOT SEEN THAT AGREEMENT.

SO, UM, THAT MAY BE SOMETHING YOU WANT TO ASK THE APPLICANT OR REPRESENTATIVE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD ABOUT OKAY.

FROM THE AD, LIKE, YES.

UM, SO , UH, AGENCY, THE APPLICANT.

UM, IT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

AND YES, SO WE HAVE, UM, WE'VE WORKED AT A PRIVATE AGREEMENT.

THAT'S OBVIOUSLY SEPARATE FROM THE ZONING, UM, THAT DOES A NUMBER OF THINGS.

AND ONE OF THOSE THINGS IS LIMITS THE HEIGHT 75 FEET, WHICH IS WHAT IT WORKS FOR OUR PROJECT.

IT'S STILL ALLOWED TO ALLOWS US TO HIT OUR UNIT COUNT, UM, AND LIMITS THE HEIGHT TO 40 FEET WITHIN 200 FEET OF SINGLE FAMILY ZONING, WHICH AS WAS MENTIONED EARLIER IS ACTUALLY MORE, MORE EXPANSIVE.

IT PROVIDES MORE COMPATIBILITY THAN WHAT THE COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS ALREADY PROVIDE.

UM, AND ALSO A 30 FOOT SETBACK.

BUT I KNOW, I KNOW MY TIME'S LIMITED AND I JUST WANTED TO SAY WHERE WE ARE OPEN TO.

YES, ABSOLUTELY.

AND WE'RE OPEN TO HAVING THAT IN THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY PROVISIONS AS WELL.

THAT WOULD NOT VOID THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

THAT WOULD BE ENTIRELY BECAUSE WE AGREE WITH THOSE PROVISIONS.

THAT WAS MY FOLLOWUP.

OKAY.

SO, UM, JUST TO BE CLEAR, UM, YOU, UH, YOU DON'T AGREE WITH, UH, UM, THE RESIDENT WHO WAS CONCERNED, UH, THAT ANYTHING THAT WE PUT IN THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY WOULD VOID THIS RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, CORRECT.

IT'S A LITTLE BIT WONKY, BUT JUST, UM, BECAUSE THEY FELT MORE COMFORTABLE FILING THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT PRIOR TO OUR FINAL READING AT CITY COUNCIL.

UH, WE JUST NEEDED TO KNOW THAT WHATEVER GETS APPROVED, WE'LL ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO BUILD OUR PROJECT.

UM, OTHERWISE IT'S, IT RESTRICTS THINGS THAT WE'RE, WE'RE UNABLE TO EVEN GET TO THAT LEVEL.

UM, SO W WHAT YOU SAID, AND WHAT WE DID AGREE TO IS THAT AS LONG AS WE'RE, AS LONG AS THE APPLICANT IS IN AGREEMENT WITH SOMETHING, THEN EVERYTHING, THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT STILL STANDS.

AND ALL OF THE, ALL OF THE PROVISIONS, I JUST READ ARE THINGS THAT STILL ALLOW US TO DO THAT.

AND THAT I'M SAYING HERE ON THE RECORD, WE AGREE TO THOSE PROVISIONS.

AND SO THAT WOULDN'T AFFECT THIS.

GREAT.

UH, AND THEN WHEN YOU SAY 75 FEET, IS THAT A OVERALL HEIGHT, OR IS THERE SOMETHING ON OF THAT 75 FOOT OVERALL HEIGHT LIMIT? CORRECT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONERS WITH ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS LOOKING AROUND THE ROOM COMMISSIONERS ARE, THANK YOU, CHAIR.

UM, I HAVE A QUESTION FOR MR. RUSSELL.

THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT HE HAD MENTIONED IN AN EMAIL, AND I'VE BEEN, I THINK THE, YOU KNOW, WHAT WE HAD RECEIVED

[00:45:01]

REGARDING THE COVENANT THAT ARE CONSIDERING THERE WAS A CONSIDERATION OF NOT ALLOWING BALCONIES, BUT RATHER GOING FOR JULIET BALCONIES.

CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO THAT, MR. RUSSELL? YES.

THE JULIET BALCONIES ARE A BALCONY THAT DOESN'T HAVE, UM, A SURFACE TO WALK OUT UPON.

SO I THINK IN RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, IT WAS LIKE SIX INCHES, UM, YOU KNOW, PROTRUDING OUT.

SO IT'S ESSENTIALLY JUST A, UH, UH, YOU KNOW, UM, I FORGET WHAT THE TERM WOULD BE, BUT YOU BASICALLY CAN'T GO WALK OUT AND SIT OUT ON A BALCONY AND THAT WOULD BE APPLYING TO ANYTHING FACING, UH, THE NEIGHBORHOOD PROPERTY LINES.

AND SO THAT WAS WHAT WE ASKED FOR, AND THAT WAS WHAT MR. GAINEY AND THE DEVELOPER AGREED TO.

AND PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WHY Y'ALL MADE THAT REQUEST.

LIKE, WHAT WAS THE REASONING BEHIND REQUESTING JULIET BALCONIES? THE REASONING WOULD BE, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU, IF YOU HAVE, UM, A PERSON LIVING IN AN APARTMENT THAT IS BUILT 30 FEET FROM OUR PROPERTY LINES, AND THEY HAVE A REGULAR, UH, BALCONY THAT PROTRUDES OUT AND THEY PUT A CHAIR OUT THERE OR A COUCH OUT THERE, THEY CAN HANG OUT, UH, AS LONG AS THEY WANT TO BE AS LOUD AS THEY WANT, BUT IF THEY DON'T HAVE THAT OPTION AND THEY CAN ONLY OPEN THEIR WINDOW TO LOOK OUT AND MAYBE SMOKE OR SOMETHING, THAT'S GOING TO LIMIT THE USE AND THE, THE NOISE LEVEL AND THE PRIVACY CONCERNS AS MUCH AS REASONABLY REASONABLY POSSIBLE.

WE CAN'T PREVENT THEM FROM HAVING ANY ABILITY WHATSOEVER TO OPEN AND, AND, YOU KNOW, LOOK OUT AND, AND ET CETERA, BUT IT KIND OF MINIMIZES THAT, THAT PRIVACY AND ANNOYANCE AND COMFORTABILITY IMPACT.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? YEAH.

AND CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THE PRIVACY ASPECT? LIKE, WHAT IS THE CONCERN FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD REGARDING PRIVACY FROM BALCONIES? UH, WELL, OKAY.

SO IF THEY'RE ON THE SECOND STORY, THEY CAN LOOK INTO, UM, ALL THE HOMES THAT ARE SURROUNDING AND THE ABILITY TO BE OUT, OUT THERE ON A BALCONY FOR LONGER PERIODS OF TIME IS GOING TO, UH, THAT THERE'S MORE IMPACT ON OUR PRIVACY BECAUSE THE LONGER THAT THEY'RE OUT THERE, UH, THE MORE THAT THEY CAN SPEND TIME OUTSIDE AND THEY CAN POTENTIALLY LOOK INTO ALL THE SURROUNDING BACKYARDS THAT ARE, THAT ARE WITHIN 25 OR 30 FEET FROM THE SECOND STORY, OR THE THIRD STORY, BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE, I BELIEVE, UH, THE 30 FEET, UH, HIGH IS, IS TWO STORIES AND THE 40 FEET ICE IS THREE STORIES.

SO IT'S A WAY TO LIMIT THEIR USE OF BALCONIES BY NOT HAVING BALCONIES, THEY CAN SIT OUT ON.

SO, MR. S JUST, I THINK ONE THING I WANTED TO POINT OUT IS THAT ACTUALLY, IF I, IF WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, THE APARTMENT IS LIMITED TO 30 FEET, THE SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES ARE ACTUALLY LIMITED TO 32 FEET.

SO YOUR HOUSE WILL ACTUALLY BE HIGHER THAN THE APARTMENT COMPLEX THAT WILL BE ON.

AND I GUESS MY FOLLOWUP QUESTION IS, WOULD YOU SAY THAT SIMILAR PRIVACY PRODUCTIONS WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE DENTISTS FROM YOUR YARDS? LIKE, WILL YOU LIMIT HOW LONG YOU STAY OUT IN YOUR YARD CONSIDERING THE INCONVENIENCE THAT YOU MAKE? CAUSE THEN BASED ON WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

OKAY.

SO YOU'RE SAYING THAT, UM, THAT THE, THE, THE HEIGHT OF MY HOUSE IS EQUAL TO THE HEIGHT OF A TWO STORY, APARTMENT COMPLEX, OR THREE STORY APARTMENT COMPLEX, BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE IT WHEN YOU HIRE, HIRE, BECAUSE YOUR HOUSE IS A LOT TO FEED.

MY HOUSE IS HIGHER THAN THAT.

WELL, I DON'T HAVE A TWO STORY HOUSE, SO I CAN'T LOOK DOWN INTO THEIR HOMES.

SO I'M, I'M, I'M NOT UNDERSTANDING WHAT YOUR QUESTION IS, OR MAYBE WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

SO I GUESS MY QUESTION, LET ME PHRASE THAT.

I THINK WHAT I'M HEARING, YOU KNOW, ONE, THERE'S IT, I DISCREPANCIES, HONESTLY, IT'S NOT LIKE THE SINGLE-FAMILY IN DOCUMENTS FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARE EXACTLY THE SAME IF ACTUALLY NOT MORE THAN WHAT IS LOVE FOR THE DEPARTMENT.

SO I JUST WANT TO REALLY CLARIFY THAT.

AND IT'S NOT AS IF MY BUILDINGS ARE ABOUT TO GO WITH THAT.

SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A BUILDING THAT IS 30 FEET, 30 FEET FROM THE, FROM THE POVERTY LINE AND IS ACTUALLY LOWER IN HEIGHTENED DOCUMENTS THAN WHAT THE SINGLE FAMILY IS.

BUT MY QUESTION WAS, I THINK YOU WERE SAYING THAT IF PEOPLE HANG OUT, DEPENDING ON THE HOURS THAT THEY HANG OUT, IT MIGHT BE INCONVENIENCE TO THE NEIGHBORS.

AND I'M WONDERING, DO YOU THINK THAT YOUR, YOU COULD POTENTIALLY INCONVENIENCE THEM FROM USING YOUR YARD AT LATE HOURS? AND WOULD YOU MAKE ANY LIMITATION ON HOW LONG DO YOU USE FOR YARD? UM, I'M NOT SURE HOW, IF

[00:50:01]

I'M HANGING OUT IN MY BACKYARD, THAT WOULD INCONVENIENCE SOMEONE ON A SECOND STORY OR A THIRD STORY THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE TO ME.

I CAN'T LOOK UP INTO THEIR HOMES.

LIKE THEY CAN LOOK DOWN INTO OUR BACKYARDS.

SO I'M JUST NOT, I'M NOT UNDERSTANDING HOW CAN, THAT WOULD BE A CONCERN FOR THEM OUT OF DYING.

IF I HAVE MORE TIME ALSO, THEY WERE AT A TIME COMMISSIONER COPS.

YEAH.

I JUST, I WANTED TO THANK, UH, BOTH THE APPLICANTS AND ALL THE NEIGHBORS AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD GROUPS FOR ALL THE EFFORT, UH, COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION THEY PUT INTO THIS.

UM, I'M SURE CAROUSEL AND I HAVE SPENT WAY MORE TIME LOOKING AND READING THROUGH THIS STUFF.

I APPRECIATE MR. GODSEY AND HE'S VERY LENGTHY KNOW THAT I'VE TRIED TO READ THROUGH, UH, EXPLAINING EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON.

I HAD A QUESTION, UM, I'M REALLY HAPPY TO SEE THE HEIGHT LIMIT, UH, CYANOTIC DID 75 FEET.

THAT'S SOMETHING THAT THE APPLICANT HAS HAD AGREED TO.

UH, AND THEN THE EXPANDED COMPATIBILITY, UH, UH, NOT EXCEED 40 FEET WITHIN 200 FEET.

THAT'S SOMETHING THE APPLICANT HAS AGREED TO.

I'M LOOKING THROUGH THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT PROVISION THAT MR GARDENY HAD SENT ME, WHICH WOULD LOOKS LIKE, UH, AN EXCELLENT LIST OF THINGS THAT, THAT ARE TRYING TO, TO TOUCH ON, UH, MOST OF WHAT THE NEIGHBORS CONCERN, MOST OF WHAT THE NEIGHBORS HAVE BROUGHT UP AS CONCERNS.

BUT I'VE GOT A QUESTION FOR STAFF, REALLY.

JUST ONE QUESTION FOR STAFF.

UH, I THINK A LANDSCAPE BUFFER IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT.

UM, I'VE SEEN HOW NICER THINGS CAN BE WHEN THERE'S LANDSCAPE BUFFERS.

AND THERE IS A LANDSCAPE BUFFER AREA PROVISION IN THE RESTRICTIVE, THE PROPOSED RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

AND MY QUESTION TO STAFF IS UNDER THE EXISTING CODE THAT THEY WOULD BE OPERATING UNDER.

ARE THEY REQUIRED TO HAVE ANY LANDSCAPING BUFFER BETWEEN THEIR BUILDINGS AND THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCES TO THE REAR ALREADY, OR, OR IS THIS LANDSCAPER LANDSCAPE BUFFER AREA IN THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, SOMETHING ABOVE AND BEYOND THAT, THAT THE APPLICANT WOULD BE DOING? CONDITIONED.

HASN'T BEEN PLANNING.

SORRY.

I HAD A MEETING PROBLEM.

UM, THE ANSWER IS COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS REQUIRE BUFFERING, INCLUDING SOLID FENCE AND LANDSCAPING.

I COULDN'T, I COULDN'T HEAR THEM.

YEAH.

I COULDN'T HEAR YOU THERE.

OKAY.

LET ME TRY IT AGAIN.

MARK GRAHAM WITH HOUSING AND PLANNING, THERE IS REQUIRED BUFFER IN THE COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS, SO IT WOULD REQUIRE A SOLID FENCE AND LANDSCAPING TO BUFFER THIS USE FROM THE SINGLE FAMILY.

OKAY.

AND THEN, I GUESS, UH, JUST TO FOLLOW UP ON THAT TO MR. GARDENY WITH THE APPLICANT, THE LANDSCAPE BUFFERS THAT Y'ALL ARE PROPOSING, I SEE HERE 10 SHADE TREES, MINIMUM THREE INCH CALIPER INCHES, A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF THAT YOU'LL PROMISE TO DO ON A LANDSCAPE BUFFER.

UM, IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING THAT THAT'S ABOVE AND BEYOND THE LANDSCAPING REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE REQUIRED IN THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE? YES.

UM, I'M NOT A LANDSCAPER BY TRADE, BUT IN SPEAKING WITH OUR LANDSCAPING, UH, EXPERTS ON THIS PRIOR, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT, UH, THE PROGRAM THAT THE CITY RUNS OPERATES ON KIND OF A NUMBER OF YOU GRANT GAIN CREDITS FOR DOING CERTAIN THINGS AS WELL, AND THAT WHAT WE'RE PROVIDING IS ABOVE AND BEYOND, UM, WHAT WE WOULD OTHERWISE BE REQUIRED THEM TO THE EXISTING CODE.

YES, THAT'S MY UNDERSTANDING.

OKAY.

AND THEN ONE LAST QUESTION FOR YOU, MR. GARDENY.

UH, THE JULIET BALCONIES ISSUE THAT WE WERE JUST HEARING ABOUT THE APPLICANT HAS AGREED TO RESTRICT BALCONIES, UH, FACING THE SINGLE FAMILY LOTS AND HARDY CIRCLE AND HARDY DRIVE.

Y'ALL, Y'ALL HAVE AGREED TO RESTRICT THOSE TO JULIET BALCONIES, CORRECT.

UH, THAT IS IT'S PROVISIONING THAT WE HAVE AGREED TO.

YES.

AND YOU'RE IN, YOU'RE HAPPY TO DO THAT.

UM, WE ARE, WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THIS HOUSING ON BURNET ROAD AND, YOU KNOW, WE'RE REALLY EXCITED TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS, UH, FOCUSES CONCERNS TO HELP GET FOLKS COMFORTABLE WITH HOUSING, UM, IN WHATEVER WAYS WE CAN.

SO WE'RE, WE'RE, WE'RE EXCITED FOR THIS PROJECT, DANIEL.

YES.

THAT'S A WONDERFUL ANSWER, MR. GOD.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S ALL MY QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO THAT BRINGS US TO A TOTAL OF FOUR COMMISSIONERS.

WE

[00:55:01]

HAVE FOUR SPOTS LEFT.

UH, LET ME START WITH COMMISSIONER.

UH, FINALLY, AND THEN IF WE HAVE SPACE, CAN MR. SNYDER WE'LL, WE'LL GET BACK TO YOU.

UM, YEAH.

THANK YOU, TODD.

UH, MIKE, UH, UH, COMMISSIONER SHAW.

MY QUESTION IS FOR STAFF AND I WAS JUST VERY INTERESTED IN LOOKING THROUGH, UH, THE WAY THE PROJECT ALIGNS WITH OUR IMAGINE AUSTIN PLANNING PRINCIPLES.

UM, AND I APPRECIATE THE WAY THAT STAFF BROKE IT DOWN FOR US.

UM, I WAS ACTUALLY SURPRISED BECAUSE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF, UH, IMAGINE AUSTIN PLANNING PRINCIPLES THAT I THINK DO APPLY TO THIS PROJECT, BUT STAFF MARKED AS NON-APPLICABLE FOR INSTANCE, UH, NUMBER SEVEN, WHERE WE TALK ABOUT PRESERVING PARKS AND GREEN SPACE AND GREEN STREETS, UM, IN ITEM NINE, WHERE WE TALK ABOUT ENCOURAGING ACTIVE AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLES BY PROMOTING WALKING, AND BIKING AND HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES.

UM, ITEM 10, UH, WHERE WE TALK ABOUT EXPANDING THE ECONOMIC BASE 11, WHERE WE'VE TALKED ABOUT SUSTAINING AUSTIN'S LIVE MUSIC AND FESTIVALS THEATER, RIGHT? THESE ARE ALL ITEMS THAT WERE MARKED AS APPLICABLE, BUT IT SEEMS TO ME THAT A PROJECT LIKE THIS DOES IN FACT APPLY TO ALL OF THESE AREAS BY HELPING TO SUSTAIN HEALTHIER LIFESTYLES, UH, GROW THE LIVE MUSIC AND ART SCENE AND SO FORTH.

UM, AS A RENTER WHO HAS ALWAYS LIVED IN MULTI-FAMILY APARTMENTS, I KNOW THAT A LARGE PART OF OUR KIND OF CREATIVE COMMUNITY, A LARGE PART OF OUR BIKE RIDERS AND TRANSIT USERS LIVE IN APARTMENT COMPLEXES.

SO I WAS WONDERING IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT STAFF COULD SPEAK A LITTLE BIT TO WHY THAT PROJECT WAS NOT DEEMED APPLICABLE TO THOSE AREAS.

UM, MAUREEN MEREDITH HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENTS.

UM, SO STARTING, I'LL START WITH THE 11, I MEAN, AND GROW LIVE MUSIC.

I GUESS WHEN I LOOK AT THE APP, THE APPLICATION, I GUESS I'M LOOKING, UH, IS, IS THAT PROJECT GOING TO BRING LIVE MUSIC OR FESTIVALS? I GUESS I DON'T THINK OF IT AS, UH, GROWING THAT.

SO I GUESS THAT'S WHY I PUT IT WASN'T APPLICABLE.

UM, PERHAPS IF IT WAS DOWNTOWN AND WHEREAS WHERE THERE'S MORE LIVE MUSIC, YOU HAVE THE, UM, THE, UH, MUSIC VENUES DOWN THERE.

I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE RATED THAT DIFFERENTLY.

UM, FOR NUMBER 10, EXPAND THE ECONOMIC BASE.

I SAID, NOT DIRECTLY APPLICABLE BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN THE PROJECT IS BEING BUILT, THERE'S JOBS THAT ARE CREATED FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE BUILDING IT.

UM, BUT AS FAR AS LIKE THE ACTUAL APARTMENT COMPLEX, I SUSPECT, UH, THERE'S ONLY PROBABLY A FEW JOB OPPORTUNITIES.

YOU MIGHT HAVE A MANAGER, A COUPLE OF MANAGERS AND A, YOU KNOW, SOME MAINTENANCE STAFF.

SO IS IT CREATING A LOT OF JOB OPPORTUNITIES? AND I, SO THAT'S WHY I SAY NOT DIRECTLY APPLICABLE VERSUS, YOU KNOW, YOU MIGHT HAVE A BIG INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX THAT HAS A LOT MORE JOB OPPORTUNITIES.

SO THAT'S WHY I RATED THAT NOT DIRECTLY APPLICABLE, UM, ENCOURAGING, ACTIVE, HEALTHY LIFESTYLE FOR OUR PROMOTING WALKING, BIKING, HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES, ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE AND RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES.

AGAIN, I SAID, YOU'RE NOT DIRECTLY APPLICABLE.

UM, SO, YOU KNOW, BURN IT ROAD, UM, IS IT, IN MY OPINION, A VERY WALKABLE OR BIKEABLE, UM, ROAD, YOU KNOW, HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES.

THERE'S SOME GROCERY STORES FURTHER SOUTH, UH, HMM.

RESTAURANTS IN THE AREA ALONG THAT CORRIDOR, CORRECT.

AND OTHER FOOD CHOICES AND OPPORTUNITIES.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE THERE ARE IN FACT QUITE A FEW OPPORTUNITIES IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD TO DO THINGS BY WALKING AND BIKING IF I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY.

UM, YEAH, BUT I THINK MY POINT WAS LOST TO, I THINK MY POINT WAS LESS TO SORT OF, UH, PICK ON STAFF ON THIS, BUT REALLY JUST A SORT OF, I, I THINK MAYBE, YOU KNOW, ASK WHY WE CAN'T LOOK AT A PROJECT LIKE THIS AND APPRECIATE SOME OF THE LARGER SECONDARY IMPACTS THAT IT DOES HAVE TOWARDS MOVING TOWARDS A LOT OF THESE, UH, IMAGINE AUSTIN PLANNING GOALS.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

UM, AND THEN, UH, A UP QUESTION TO THAT IS, IS THERE ANY REASON WHY, WELL, I GUESS IF, IF THE PROJECT WAS PERCEIVED TO HAVE MORE OF AN IMPACT ON, ON HELPING US ACHIEVE THOSE GOALS, WOULD THAT HAVE, UH, WEIGHED HEAVY, HEAVIER ON STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IN TERMS OF THE, UH, UH, THE RECOMMENDATION FOR, UM, THE, THE AMOUNT OF, UM, FOR MF FOUR

[01:00:01]

TO MF SIX, WOULD THAT HAVE WEIGHED HEAVIER ON STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION FOR THE AMOUNT OF UNITS THAT WE WOULD BE ALLOWING TO CREATE ONSITE? OKAY.

I'M MARK GRAHAM HOUSING IMPLANTING.

I'LL TAKE THAT QUESTION.

UM, I THINK WE MADE THE POINT THAT I WOULD MAKE, WHICH IS THAT OUR REPORTS ARE VERY GOOD AT CAPTURING THAT SECONDARY IMPACTS.

AND, UM, CERTAINLY THOSE ARE OUR BENEFITS AND CONSISTENT WITH THE COMP PLAN.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, SORRY, UH, WHERE WE'RE AT A TIME, BUT, UM, UH, DO I SEE COMMISSIONERS WITH ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? NOT COMMISSIONER.

LET'S GO, HOLD ON ONE SECOND.

WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF SLOTS.

ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS BEFORE I LET COMMISSIONER SNYDER HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION? OKAY, GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER SNYDER.

MY APOLOGIES CHAIR.

I HAD, I HAD THREE QUESTIONS AND I DIDN'T TURN MY PAGE.

UM, SO, UH, I THINK THIS IS FOR STAFF.

UM, UH, DO I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAT WITH, UH, MF DESIGNATION, THERE IS, UH, NO REQUIREMENT FOR ANY SORT OF, UM, RETAIL OR PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED USES ON THE GROUND FLOOR OR, OR IS IT IN FACT THAT THAT'S NOT ALLOWED? UM, THE, UH, STAFF WITH HOUSING AND PLANNING OF THE MF IS FULLY RESIDENTIAL CATEGORY AND, UM, IT'S UNLIKE SITES THAT HAVE A V THAT WOULD ALLOW YOU TO, UM, UH, REQUIRE YOU TO HAVE A COMMERCIAL COMPONENT TO IT IN SUNLIGHT, ADDING THE M U TO THE EXISTING COMMERCIAL ZONING, WHICH WOULD GIVE YOU THE ABILITY TO HAVE BOTH COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL COMPONENTS.

SO THIS, THIS WILL WE'RE LIMITED TO RESIDENTIAL USES.

SO, UM, I GUESS I SORT OF WANT TO BEMOAN THAT FACT THAT, UM, WE'RE BUILDING A LOT OF RESIDENTS, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY VERY IMPORTANT, BUT WE'RE MISSING AN OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE WALKABILITY, TO HAVE SERVICES AT THE RESIDENTS WHO LIVE THERE MIGHT ACTUALLY USED, OR THE NEIGHBORS
