FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SPEAKING TO AN ITEM THAT'S UP FOR DISCUSSION, OR YOU PULLED AN ITEM FOR DISCUSSION.

WE WILL TAKE SPEAKERS IN THE ORDER THAT THEY APPEAR ON, ON THE AGENDA.

UM, STAFF, I WENT TO, UM, I NEEDED ADVICE.

SHOULD WE GO AHEAD AND HAVE A CITIZEN COMMUNICATION BEFORE WE GO THROUGH THE READING OF THE AGENDA? WE HAVEN'T HAD CITIZENS COMMUNICATION A LONG TIME.

SO CAN I GET SOME ADVICE FROM STAFF? YES.

[Citizen's Communication]

I THINK WE SHOULD GET SEASONED COMMUNICATION FIRST.

OKAY.

OKAY, FINE.

THANK YOU.

SO WE HAVE TWO SPEAKERS ON, UH, CITIZEN COMMUNICATION.

DR.

MCGEE, ARE YOU ON THE LINE? OKAY.

YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES.

WELL, GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS, UH, DR.

FRED MCGEE AND, UH, AT THE SUGGESTION OF, UH, COMMISSIONER VALANZUELA, I, UH, SIGNED UP FOR CITIZENS COMMUNICATION AT TONIGHT'S MEETING TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION, UH, MY NATIONAL REGISTER NOMINATION FOR THE MONTOPOLIS NEGRO SCHOOL.

NOW, THOSE OF YOU WHO WERE ON THE COMMISSION STARTING IN ABOUT 20 15, 20 16, NO.

HOW CONTENTIOUS OF A ZONING CASE THIS WAS, UM, AND TO SEE IT COME BACK AROUND FINALLY IN JUNE OF 2021, I THINK IS A WONDERFUL THING.

UM, PERHAPS ALL, WELL, THAT ENDS WELL.

UH, I, I JUST WANT TO BRING IT TO YOUR ATTENTION.

I EMAILED IT TO STAFF.

I HOPE YOU'VE HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT IT.

IF YOU HAVE ANY, UH, ANY COMMENTS, ANYTHING THAT YOU, UH, CORRECTIONS, ET CETERA, PLEASE REACH OUT TO ME AT THE INFORMATION LISTED IN THE NOMINATION ITSELF.

AND THAT'S MY CONTACT INFORMATION.

YOU'LL REACH ME DIRECTLY THERE.

AND I HOPE YOU WILL AGREE WITH THE NATIONAL REGISTER CRITERIA THAT HAS BEEN SELECTED, UH, UNDER A, AT THE LOCAL LEVEL OF SIGNIFICANCE.

UH, PERHAPS YOU WANT TO GO FURTHER ON, I'M CERTAINLY RECEPTIVE TO THAT, BUT I HOPE YOU WILL SUPPORT THIS, UH, EXPEDITIOUSLY

[00:05:01]

AND THAT THIS PROPERTY WILL BE LISTED.

IT'LL BE THE FIRST NATIONAL REGISTER PROPERTY IN .

UM, WE DID A HISTORIC MARKER DEDICATION CEREMONY FOR JUNETEENTH JUST, UH, JUST NINE DAYS AGO, 10 DAYS AGO.

SO WE'RE RAMPING UP OUR HISTORIC PRESERVATION EFFORTS AND I HOPE THIS COMMISSION WILL PLAY A LARGE ROLE IN THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, DR.

MCGEE.

AND I JUST, UM, I'M GOING TO TAG TEAM ON THAT, UH, TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT, UM, THE NATIONAL REGISTER NOMINATION FOR THE BULLY WELLS HOUSE, UM, THE WILLIE WALL'S HOUSE HAS NOW BEEN LISTED IN THE NATIONAL REGISTER, AND THAT'S AN AUSTIN LANDMARK, UM, NOW ON THE NATIONAL REGISTER AND WE'VE ALSO, UM, WRITTEN IN RECORDED TEXAS HISTORIC LANDMARK, UH, APPLICATION FOR IT AS WELL.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER ON CITIZENS, I BELIEVE THAT'S PAULA GOD-MAN.

ARE YOU THERE? PAULA STAMP IS PAULA ON THE LINE.

IF SO, PLEASE UNMUTE HER.

IF PAULA IS ON THE LINE, UH, PLEASE MUTE.

I'M SORRY, PLEASE UNMUTE YOUR PHONE.

UM, AS I'M GOING THROUGH THE NUMBERS HERE, I'M NOT SEEING PAULA ON MY LIST, HOWEVER, BUT SHE COULD BE USING A DIFFERENT PHONE.

SO IF YOU ARE HERE, PAULA, PLEASE UNMUTE YOUR PHONE.

OKAY, WAIT A SECOND.

I THINK I JUST GOT PAULA KOFMAN PAULA KAUFMANN.

OKAY.

I'LL LET YOU OUT THREE MINUTES.

YES.

AND THE REASON I WANTED TO SPEAK TODAY IS WHY DON'T YOU TALK ABOUT PRESERVATION AND AFFORDABILITY? SO, UM, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT OUR COMMITTEE HAS DONE IS THAT WE HAVE LOOKED AT SOME OF THE OLDER DUPLEXES IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD THAT WERE RAISED AND REBUILT.

AND WE COMPARED THE RENTS THAT WERE COLLECTED WHEN THE PROPERTIES WERE OLDER, VERSUS THE RENT THAT THEY'RE COLLECTING AFTER THEY WERE REBUILT.

THOSE RENTS WERE SOMEWHERE AROUND $800 A MONTH AND SEVERAL OF OUR PROPERTIES AND OUR DUPLEXES.

AND ONCE THEY WERE REBUILT, THE RENTAL PRICES WERE VASTLY MORE EXPENSIVE, SOMETHING BETWEEN THREE, $4,000 A MONTH, CERTAINLY NOT AFFORDABLE.

SO REALLY WANTED THE, THE COMMISSION TO LOOK AT SOME WAYS AND TO ADVISE US WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT TRYING TO SECURE SOME OF OUR OLDER, AFFORDABLE CONDOMINIUMS AND DUPLEXES, BECAUSE WE'RE HAVING SO MANY OF HER OR PROPERTIES RAISED NOW THAT WE'RE SPEAR THAT WE'RE GONNA LOSE A LOWER INCOME TENANTS, WHICH GIVE OUR NEIGHBORHOOD GREATER DIVERSITY.

WE'RE ALSO WAITING TO SEE WHEN THE CITY IS GOING TO WILL, UH, ITS PROGRAM TO BE ABLE TO CONVERT OUR, OUR GARAGE APARTMENTS AND OUR GARAGES INTO CASITA'S AND, AND TO ACCESSORY DWELLING UNITS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY KIND OF UPDATE ON THAT, WE'D APPRECIATE IT.

I'VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT THIS FOR YEARS NOW THAT WE WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET ZERO INTEREST LOANS, BUT I'VE NEVER FOUND OUT WHAT THE ACTUAL ACTUAL PROCESS WAS TO APPLY FOR THESE LOANS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, PAULA.

DOES ANYONE ON THE COMMISSION OR STAFF HAVE ANYTHING, UM, TO SAY AND ANSWER TO MS. KIRKMAN'S, UM, QUESTION, I THINK SPECIFICALLY ON, UM, 80 YEARS AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UM, LOW INTEREST OR NO INTEREST LOANS, THAT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT WILL, UM, MR. HEIM, SETH COMMISSIONER HEADSETS.

I REALLY APPRECIATE THIS BEING RAISED.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE CAREFUL TO INDICATE THAT OUR ROLE

[00:10:01]

IS TO LOOK AT WAYS TO PRESERVE BOTH INDIVIDUAL PROPERTIES AND NEIGHBORHOOD INTEGRITY.

UM, AND SO I THINK IN THAT CONTEXT, THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE FOR 80 USE OR OTHER TYPES OF MODIFICATIONS THAT WOULD ALLOW, UM, OTHER TYPES OF ECONOMIC INCENTIVES FOR AN OWNER TO KEEP AND RESTORE OR PRESERVE A PROPERTY ARE CERTAINLY WITHIN OUR PURVIEW.

UM, BUT AS FAR AS THE SPECIFICS AND THE DETAILS, UM, WE'RE REALLY NOT THE PRIMARY AREA AND THAT'S NOT THE PRIMARY FOCUS CERTAINLY OF THE PRESERVATION MOVEMENT.

UH, BUT I APPRECIATE THAT IT IS RELATED AND CERTAINLY WORTHY OF DISCUSSION.

AND WHEN WE REVIEW THOSE TYPES OF REQUESTS THAT COME TO US, I THINK, UH, MS. KAUFMAN BRINGS UP A GOOD POINT.

WE REALLY SHOULD ALSO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE KEEPING THAT INTO OUR THOUGHTS.

UM, YES, IT'S APPROPRIATE, BUT ALSO IS IT SOMETHING THAT WE KNOW AS AFFORDABLE AND IN PROCESS IS BENEFITING, UH, THE PRESERVATION OF THE ENTIRE AREA.

THANK YOU.

I AGREE.

AND I THINK PROBABLY MOST OF THE COMMISSIONERS AGREE THAT, UM, THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT, UH, PERHAPS WE CAN HAVE A PRESENTATION OR BRIEFING ON THAT IN THE FEATURE OF THE COMMISSION LEVEL.

UM, MOVING ON NOW, UM, WE HAVE ANOTHER REQUEST, UM, SPEAKING, CAN WE SHARE A STEP? I WAS GONNA SAY, YEAH, I'D BE INTERESTED IN, UM, MORE OF THE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE, THE PRESENTATION OF THAT STUDY OF, UM, THE RENT BEFORE AND AFTER.

AND, YOU KNOW, IF IT GOES FROM A DUPLEX TO A SINGLE FAMILY HOME, IT'S HARD TO JUDGE, UM, WHAT THE COST OF THAT LOFT HOUSING UNIT IS.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT JUST A DOLLAR OF RENT.

IT'S, IT'S LITERALLY, IT'S JUST GONE AND THAT'S REALLY HARD TO JUDGE THE PRICE THAT WE PAY A SECURITY FOR THAT.

AND SO, YEAH, I'M ALWAYS PRO HOUSING AND AS I THINK PEOPLE, UM, CONTRIBUTE A LOT TO THE COMMUNITY VALUE.

SO I ALWAYS TAKE THAT INTO MY CONSIDERATIONS WHEN I MAKE MY VOTES.

THANK YOU.

ANYONE ELSE WANT TO WEIGH IN ON THIS TOPIC? I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE ALL INTERESTED IN.

I'M NOT PRICING PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS.

UM, MOVING ON PAST CITIZENS COMMUNICATION,

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ALL THE SPEAKERS SPEAK IN THE ORDER THAT THEY COME ON THE AGENDA, BUT WE'RE NOT ACTUALLY TAKING UP THE ITEMS AT THIS TIME.

WE WILL TAKE UP THOSE AFTER WE SHARE ALL THE SPEAKERS.

A CITIZEN HAS REQUESTED POST COMMENT BY EMAIL FOR 1805 WATERSON AVENUE.

WE SHOULD PROBABLY TAKE THAT OUT BEFORE WE GET TO THE PUBLIC HEARINGS.

OKAY.

THAT'S GOING TO BE INCLUDED IN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

UM, I THOUGHT THAT WAS TO BE PULLED FOR DISCUSSION.

THEY W THEY REQUESTED A POSTPONEMENT.

COMMISSIONER HAIM, SETH.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO POSTPONE UP TO 180 DAYS ON PROPERTIES IN NATIONAL REGISTER DISTRICTS.

UH, THE ORIGINAL POSTPONE WAS TO, UH, GET MORE TIME TO MEET WITH THE APPLICANTS.

UH, PEOPLE, UM, DID MEET WITH THE APPLICANTS, BUT THE APPLICANTS, UM, HAVEN'T FINISHED THEIR PLANS AND THEY, UM, THE NEIGHBORHOOD WANTED ADDITIONAL TIME TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE PLANS AND MEET AGAIN WITH THE APPLICANTS.

AND THAT'S WHY THEY'RE REQUESTING A POSTPONEMENT.

WHAT, UM, IS THERE, UM, DO I HEAR A MOTION ON THIS ITEM? I HAD HAD IT ON THE AGENDA TO DISCUSS PERIOD, BUT THE, THE, IN THE DISCUSSION, THE, UM, MARY REED HAS REQUESTED A POST ANOTHER, SO THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO OFFER ON THAT.

WELL, IT, IT SEEMS TO ME, IF THE APPLICANT IS NOT THERE TO PROTEST IT AND ARE TO, UH, CONTEST THE POSTPONEMENT THEM, UM, THE MOTION SHOULD BE TO POSTPONE

[00:30:01]

THE CASE.

STEVE I'LL MAKE THAT MOTION.

I'M CONCERNED IF THERE, YOU KNOW, DELAYS JUST FOR DELAY SAKE.

I DON'T THINK, I DON'T THINK IT HAS BEEN, I THINK THIS IS A, I THINK THIS IS A CONSCIENTIOUS REQUEST AND I DON'T THINK THAT IT WAS OPPOSED BY THE APPLICANT, JUST BY THE KIND OF TENOR OF THE REQUEST WHEN IT WAS MADE THAT THEY WERE GOING TO PROVIDE DRAWINGS.

AND ON TOP OF THAT, THEY'RE NOT HERE, EVEN IF WE DO GO THROUGH OUR PRESENTATION, UM, MAYBE TO MAKE THAT MOTION AND RECOMMEND THEM.

OKAY.

DO I HEAR A SECOND TO POSTPONE THIS ITEM TO OUR NEXT, UH, AGENDA SECOND FROM COMMISSIONER, RIGHT? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF POSTPONING IT, PLEASE SIGNIFY BY RAISING YOUR HAND.

ANY OPPOSED? OKAY.

THIS ITEM C1 1805 WATERSTON AVENUE IS POSTPONED TO THE NEXT, UH, MEETING ON JULY 26TH.

OKAY.

UM, THANK YOU FOR THAT.

I HAD JUST KIND OF PUT IT OFF ON AS A DISCUSSION ITEM, BUT, UM, GOING BACK TO THE TWO SPEAKERS, DO WE HAVE ANYONE TO SPEAK ON ITEM A 1 27 0 8 SCENIC DRIVE? YES.

WE HAVE FOUR SPEAKERS.

THE FIRST SPEAKER, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

THE FIRST SPEAKER WE HAVE, MY NAME IS RICHARD SUTTLE.

I'M THE, UH, APPLICANT AND REPRESENTING THE LANDOWNER AS A POINT OF INQUIRY.

IS THIS RUN AS A PUBLIC HEARING UNDER 25, 151? OR IS THIS A DIFFERENT WAY OF DOING THINGS? NO, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING.

THIS IS, WE ARE TAKING, ARE YOU ASKING ABOUT THE ORDER THAT WE'RE TAKING THE, UM, THE SPEAKERS? YES.

YES.

THIS IS WHAT IS REQUIRED BY THE CITY IN THESE VIRTUAL MEETINGS.

SO I WILL MAKE THE PRESENTATION ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT AND THEN THE CASE WILL COME UP LATER.

YES, THAT'S CORRECT.

AND HOW AM I ABLE TO MAKE A REBUTTAL UNDER THE CODE? YOU KNOW, THERE MAY BE PEOPLE TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION, THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE, THEN THERE WILL BE ONE REBUTTAL FROM THE, FROM THE APPLICANT, FROM YOUR SIDE.

AND THEN WE GO ON AND TAKE THE CASES UP.

WHEN WE FINISHED LISTENING TO ALL THE SPEAKERS.

I KNOW THIS IS A VERY DISCONNECTED WAY TO DO THAT, BUT WE, WE ARE, UH, WE ARE STUCK WITH THIS.

OKAY.

AND, AND HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE? UM, THREE MINUTES.

DO YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES? OKAY.

I'LL TRY AND GO FAST.

OKAY.

ARE YOU THE MAIN, OKAY, GO AHEAD, RICHARD.

I AM THE MAIN SPEAKER AND I BELIEVE I'LL BE THE ONLY SPEAKER, UNLESS YOU HAVE QUESTIONS.

RICHARD SAYS, I REPRESENT SUZANNE DEAL BOOTH.

SHE'S THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY THERE ON SCENIC.

AND SHE WISHES TO BUILD A NEW HOME.

SUZANNE IS A PRESERVATIONIST IN HER OWN, RIGHT.

AND IT'S, I KNOW IT'S NOT PART OF THE CRITERIA, BUT SUZANNE FOUNDED FRIENDS OF HISTORIC OR, OR FRIENDS OF HERITAGE PRESERVATION AND HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY INVOLVED IN PRESERVATION AND CONSERVATION AND PROJECTS IN OVER 18 COUNTRIES.

I TELL YOU, THAT'S NOT, I KNOW IT'S NOT PART OF THE CRITERIA, BUT I TELL YOU THIS, BECAUSE IF THIS STRUCTURE WAS A CANDIDATE FOR PRESERVATION, SHE WOULD DO IT.

THIS CASE HAS SEVERAL CONSIDERATIONS.

FIRST, IT DOES NOT HAVE A STAFF RECOMMENDATION FOR HISTORIC ZONING STAFF RECOMMENDS AGAINST HISTORIC ZONING.

IT DOES NOT MEET THE CRITERIA OF 25 TO 3 52.

THIS ASSERTION IS SUPPORTED BY THE LETTERS FROM ST.

CLAIR, BLACK, PETER PI, PETER PFEIFFER, JERRY GARCIA, AND DAVID ESCOBIDO ALL IN YOUR PACKET WHILE IT IS OVER 50 YEARS OLD, IT DOES NOT RETAIN A HIGH DEGREE OF INTEGRITY THAT CONVEYS ITS HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE AND IT'S IN BAD SHAPE.

AND IT INCLUDES ADDITIONS AND ALTERATIONS THAT SIGNIFICANTLY COMPROMISE ITS INTEGRITY, THE ROOF, THE WINDOWS, THE SECOND BUILDING, THE WALKWAY, THE BASEMENT, THE STONE VENEER ARE ALL AFTERMARKET ON THIS.

UM, ON THIS PARTICULAR HOUSE, IT IS NOT ALREADY LISTED IN THE NATIONAL REGISTER OR DESIGNATED AS A LANDMARK.

AND IT DOES NOT DEMONSTRATE SIGNIFICANCE IN ARCHITECTURE IN THAT IT IS NOT AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OR PARTICULARLY FINE EXAMPLE.

THERE ARE MANY THERE'S IN THOSE LETTERS.

THERE'S A LOT OF EVIDENCE TO THIS, BUT IN FACT, IN 1989 IN A TEXAS ARCHITECTURE ARTICLE WRITTEN ABOUT MR. ROSEN OR THE ARCHITECT, SEVERAL OF HIS PROJECTS WERE LISTED.

NEITHER.

HE NOR THE AUTHOR MENTIONED, THIS ONE, THIS ONE, UH, IS, IS NOT A PARTICULARLY GOOD.

IT'S NOT EVEN PARTICULARLY GOOD.

IT'S JUST FLAT, NOT A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE OF ARCHITECTURE THAT MR. ROSENBERG DESIGNED THE HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION WITH THE MCGUINNESS FAMILY

[00:35:01]

WHILE, UM, IT IS THE MCGUINNESS FAMILY, VERY IMPORTANT FAMILY YOU HAVE IN YOUR RECORD, THE MCGUINNESS FAMILY OPPOSES OPPOSITION TO THE HISTORIC ZONING AS WELL.

UH, ARCHEOLOGY ARCHAEOLOGIC ARCHEOLOGY IS NOT RATION AND ON COMMUNITY VALUE.

IT'S, IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT OPPOSITION HAS BEEN EXPRESSED BY THE CITY STAFF OPPOSITION HAS BEEN EXPRESSED BY THE FAMILY ASSOCIATED WITH THE HOUSE.

OPPOSITION HAS BEEN EXPRESSED BY 100% OF THOSE WOOD PROPERTY WITHIN 200 FEET OF THE PROPERTY OP OPPOSITION TO EIGHT ZONING HAS BEEN BY THE OWNER.

THE WEST AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP HAS EXPRESSED NO OPPOSITION TO THE DEMO PERMIT.

AND THE ARCHITECTURAL COMMITTEE OF THIS PARTICULAR, UM, AREA OF TOWN HAS NO OPPOSITION TO THE DEMOLITION PERMIT.

SO IN CONCLUSION, IT'S NOT RECOMMENDED BY STAFF.

IT DOESN'T MEET THE CRITERIA.

IT HAS A DOUBLE VALID PETITION, THE OWNER, AND A HUNDRED PERCENT 11 OWNERS WITHIN 200 FEET.

THE FAMILY OF THE FORMER FORMER OWNERS OPPOSE EIGHT ZONING, THE WEST AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP DOES NOT OPPOSE THE DEMOLITION.

AND BASED ON THE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE IN YOUR PACKET AND PRESENTED HERE, WE ASK THAT YOU DECLINED A ZONING AND RELEASED THE DEMO PERMIT.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE.

RICHARD.

I WANTED TO JUST ADD, UM, AT THE, WHEN THE ITEMS COME UP FOR, UM, PRESENTATION, IF WE HAVE QUESTIONS AND YOU'RE STILL ON THE LINE, UM, WE'LL BE HAPPY TO, UM, YOU KNOW, TAKE, WE MIGHT NEED SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

UM, SO YOU KNOW, YOU'RE WELCOME TO STAY ON THE LINE.

I'LL BE HERE.

HOW LONG DO YOU THINK YOU SAID YOU HAD 60 PEOPLE SPEAKING? GOOD.

I'M SORRY.

IT USUALLY TAKES US ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF TO TWO HOURS TO GET THROUGH ALL THE SPEAKERS.

THEN WE GO ONTO THE CON TO THE CASES.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, RICHARD.

OKAY.

UM, NEXT ON THE LINE FOR 27 0 8 SCENIC DRIVE, WE HAVE SUZANNE DEAL BOOTH.

OKAY.

OKAY.

YES, GO AHEAD.

I I'M JUST HERE TO SAY THAT, UM, I APPRECIATE ALL THE EFFORTS GONE THAT EVERYONE HAS GONE TO, UM, ABOUT THIS, ABOUT THIS PROJECT AND, AND OUR, UH, PLEA TO HAVE A DEMOLITION PERMIT.

AND, UM, I REALLY HAVE LOOKED AT ALL AT THIS FROM MANY DIFFERENT ANGLES AND, UM, I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND A WAY TO, UM, SAVE THIS BUILDING WITHOUT IT BEING, UM, YEAH.

SORT OF DETRIMENTAL TO THE ORIGINAL VISION OF THE ARCHITECT.

AND, UM, AND I HOPE TO BUILD A BEAUTIFUL HOME HERE.

I HOPE TO, UM, HAVE MY FAMILY LIVE IN THIS, ON THIS PROPERTY FOR YEARS TO COME SO THAT I'M JUST HERE TO ENDORSE THAT, UM, REQUEST FOR A DEMOLITION PERMIT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

NEXT SPEAKER IS MR. DAVID.

ESCOBIDO ALSO FOR 2,708 SCENIC DRIVE.

MR. ESCOBEDO ARE Y'ALL ON THE LINE.

YES, WE CAN.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

I WAS ASKED BY ARMBRUSTER AND BROWN TO GO GIVE A VISUAL ASSESSMENT OF THE PROPERTY AND I ATTENDED THE PACKET IS MY LETTER.

IT, IT GIVES MY POINT OF VIEW.

I AM A, UH, A GENERAL CONTRACTOR HERE IN AUSTIN.

UH, YEAH, SINCE 83 AND REALLY MY LEFT STATE WHERE, WHAT MY POSITION IS AND TO, TO, UH, REMEDIATE THIS, UH, STRUCTURE WITH ONLY BE A REPLICA OF WHAT THE ORIGINAL INTENT WAS.

THAT'S MY POINT OF VIEW.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

DO WE HAVE MORE SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM? YES, WE HAVE ONE MORE FOR ITEM A ONE.

UH, MR. JERRY GARCIA, MR. GARCIA, GO AHEAD.

I'M A STRUCTURAL ENGINEER HERE IN AUSTIN.

UM, FOR THE LAST 30 PLUS YEARS, UM, WORKING PRIMARILY RESIDENTIAL WORK AND A GREAT DEAL FOUNDED, PROBABLY THREE.

I'VE DEALT WITH STEVE STOUT FOR AGES, JUST TO THINK OF OUR HOME, GIVEN HIS AGE.

UH, AND IT'S REALLY THE AMOUNT OF, UH, NEGLECT,

[00:40:04]

UH, VERY LITTLE RAVINE VALUE STRUCTURALLY TO THE BUILDINGS.

IT WOULD TAKE A GREAT AMOUNT OF EFFORTS TO BRING BACK ANY REDEEMING VALUE TO THE STRUCTURE.

UH, YOU HAVE MY COMMENTS, UM, THAT IS AS FAR AS MY, UH, CURRENTLY GOES, I'M AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

OKAY.

UM, MR. GARCIA, YOU WERE CUTTING OUT A LITTLE BIT, BUT I THINK YOU REFERRED TO YOUR LETTER IN THE THAT'S IN OUR BACKUP.

IS THAT CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT.

YES MA'AM.

THANK YOU, SIR.

OTHER SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM, THERE ARE NO MORE SPEAKERS REGISTERED FOR THIS ITEM.

OKAY.

I THINK OUR NEXT ITEM, UH, OUR DISCUSSION ITEM IS SEEING 9 4200 LOWOOD ROAD.

YES, WE HAVE THE APPLICANT ONLINE.

I'M MR. RICARDO SUPPLE VETA.

OKAY.

HI.

YES.

MY NAME IS RICARDO PULLED IT UP.

UM, I AM THE ARCHITECT REPRESENTING THE HOMEOWNERS AND TEAM FOR ITEM C NINE, UH, THE PROJECT ON 4,200 LOADS WITH ROAD.

UH, AND I SUPPORT THIS CASE.

UM, THE PROJECT ITSELF IS A FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD IT'S A TWO-STORY GARAGE AND BEDROOM ADDITION TO THE REAR OF THE EXISTING ONE STORY RESIDENCE.

AND THIS IS TO ACCOMMODATE THE EXISTING HOMEOWNERS GROWING FAMILY NE UM, AND FROM THE INCEPTION OF THE PROJECT, THE HOMEOWNERS HAVE MADE IT A PRIORITY TO DESIGN SOMETHING THAT IS COMPATIBLE AND RESPECTFUL OF THE EXISTING HISTORIC STRUCTURE, THE VIEW FROM THE STREETS AND JUST THE OVERALL NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER.

UM, WE TOOK ALL OF OUR DESIGN ELEMENTS ON THE ADDITION FROM THE EXISTING STRUCTURE, INCLUDING THE WINDOW STYLES, SIZES, MATERIALS, ROOF LINES, AND JUST OVERALL PROPORTION.

UM, THE EXISTING HOUSE ITSELF, UH, WILL REMAIN FULLY INTACT EXCEPT FOR THE EXTERIOR WALL WHERE WE'RE TYING IN THE ADDITION AT THE REAR AND THE REPLACEMENT OF THE EXISTING WINDOWS.

UM, EXISTING HOUSE HAS A PREVIOUS BEDROOM ADDITION AT THE REAR, WHICH IS NOT ORIGINAL TO THE HOUSE AND WAS ALSO NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ORIGINAL DEED RESTRICTIONS AND SETBACKS.

AND SO PART OF THE NEW PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AN ADDITION THAT IS RESPECTING ALL OF THOSE ORIGINAL DEED, ADD BACKS AND RESTRICTIONS, UM, TO ADDRESS THE COMMENTS FROM THE HISTORIC REVIEW DOCUMENTS, UH, REGARDING REPLACEMENT OF THE ORIGINAL WINDOWS, UH, YOU KNOW, WE, AND THE HOMEOWNERS AGREE.

THOSE ARE BEAUTIFUL STEEL CASEMENT WINDOWS, BUT THEY ARE, UH, EXTREMELY COSTLY TO MAINTAIN AND HAVE ARE A SIGNIFICANT DETRIMENT TO THE OVERALL ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF THE HOME.

UM, AND SO THE HOMEOWNERS HAVE COMMITTED A PRETTY LARGE PORTION OF THEIR BUDGET TO IMPLEMENT A WOOD CLAD WINDOWS WITH TRUE DIVIDED GLASS, NOT FO DIVIDERS THAT HAS OFTEN SEEN IN FIBERGLASS OR VINYL WINDOWS, UM, WHICH WE FEEL IS AS CLOSE AS WE CAN FEASIBLY OR REASONABLY GET TO MATCHING THE ORIGINAL WINDOW STYLE WITHOUT GOING TO CUSTOM STEEL INSULATED WINDOWS, WHICH ARE JUST EXTREMELY COST PROHIBITIVE.

UM, AND THEN TO ADDRESS THE PUBLIC COMMENT, UM, WHICH WAS RAISING CONCERNS ABOUT HAVING A SECOND STORY ADDITION, UM, WE, UH, THEY MADE IT, UH, A POINT TO SAY THAT IT MIGHT BE OUT OF CHARACTER FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT WE JUST LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT THERE ARE NUMEROUS TWO STORY HOUSES IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD WITHIN A BLOCK.

I CAN LIST 10 ADDRESSES AT THE MOMENT.

UM, I'VE GOT A FEW EXAMPLES HERE IF YOU'D LIKE ME TO LIST THEM, BUT, UM, WE, WE FEEL IT'S VERY MUCH IN CHARACTER WITH THE, WITH THE AREA.

YEAH.

AND HOW, UM, SO IT'S VERY MINIMAL IMPACT FROM THE STREET.

UM, AND THE REAR ADDITION IS ABOUT 25 FEET AWAY FROM THE REAR PROPERTY LINE, WHICH IS WELL BEYOND, UH, ANY OF THE REQUIRED SETBACKS AND ALSO COMPLIES WITH, UH, ALL OF THE MCMANSION TENT STANDARDS.

UM, THE HOMEOWNERS CARE VERY MUCH ABOUT THIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND ARE VERY INVOLVED WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION, WHICH IS THE WILSHIRE WOOD DELLWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

AND THEY ARE ALSO ON THE HISTORIC SUBCOMMITTEE FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD ACTIVELY PURSUING, MAKING WWD ONE, A LOCAL HISTORIC DISTRICT.

[00:45:01]

SO, UH, I HOPE THAT YOU SUPPORT THIS PROJECT AS IT MAKES A STRONG EFFORT TO ADAPT THIS HOUSE TOWARDS THEIR FUTURE FAMILY NEEDS WHILE ALSO TAKING INTO STRONG CONSIDERATION, THE HISTORICAL INTEGRITY OF NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU.

ARE THE OWNERS ON THE LINE OR OTHERS SPEAKERS? THEY'RE NOT REGISTERED SPEAKERS.

THEY ARE WATCHING, UH, THE, THEY, THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO REGISTER IN TIME, BUT THEY ARE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I THINK YOU MADE YOUR CASE.

UM, THERE ARE ANCHORS AND OPPOSITION.

OKAY.

OUR NEXT ITEM IS C 10, 9 0 2 SPENT STREET.

WE ONLY HAVE ONE, UM, PERSON REGISTERED TO SPEAK IN THAT AS THE APPLICANT AND MR. ART RAMIREZ.

OKAY.

MR. RAMIREZ, ARE YOU ON THE LINE, MR. RAMIREZ? IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT HE IS ON THE LINE.

OKAY.

UM, IF HE DOES, UH, GET BACK IN, UM, WE CAN TAKE THAT UP, UM, LATER IN THE AGENDA.

THE NEXT ITEM C 11 IS 14, 15 WEST 10TH STREET.

WE HAVE ONE REGISTERED SPEAKER, THE APPLICANT, MR. ED RICHARDSON.

OKAY.

MR. RICHARD CENTER.

ARE YOU ON THE LINE? OKAY.

OKAY, GO AHEAD PLEASE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I'M ED RICHARDSON FROM CLOCKERS AND ARCHITECTS, WHERE THE APPLICANT FOR 14, 15 WEST 10TH STREET, UM, DR.

CENTER PATEL IS ON THIS PROPERTY SINCE 2011.

THIS PROJECT IS A CULMINATION OF A LONG-TERM DREAM TO DEVELOP A HOME FOR HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY ON THE SIDE.

UM, WE'RE LOOKING AT SLIDE TWO.

NOW THE PROPERTY IS A LARGE L-SHAPED LOT, LITTLE OVER A THIRD OF AN ACRE.

IT HAS SEVERAL AMAZING POSTDOCS OR FOR A STARTING POINT FOR OUR DESIGN PROCESS, UH, SLIDES THREE, FOUR, AND FIVE.

THERE IS AN EXISTING NON-CONTRIBUTING STRUCTURE LOCATED AT THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY.

WE'RE PROPOSING THE DEMOLITION OF THAT STRUCTURE.

SLIDE SIX.

THIS IS THE PROPOSED SITE PLAN TO WORK WITH THE EXISTING POSTDOCS AND TO MAINTAIN THE OPEN SPACE PRESIDENT OF THE STREET.

WE'RE PERSONALLY SETTING BACK THE STRUCTURE, 96 FEET FROM THE FRONT PROPERTY LINE.

THIS IS AN ADDITIONAL 10 FEET FROM THE PROPERTY THAT E-SPORTS ONE ON WEST 10TH, SLIDE SEVEN.

THE NEW CONSTRUCTION PROPOSAL IS A FOUR BEDROOMS, FIVE AND A HALF BATH.

TWO-STORY SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE WITH AN ATTACHED TWO CAR GARAGE.

AND IT INCLUDES A DETACHED GUEST SUITE FOR, FOR THE RESIDENCES 60 97 SQUARE FEET.

THAT'S A COUPLE HUNDRED SQUARE PEOPLE IN THE MAX ALLOWABLE THAT HERBALIST, THAT AREA IS COMPARABLE IN SCALE TO ADJACENT PROPERTIES AT 1411 WEST 10, WHICH IS TO THE EAST OF THIS PROPERTY, WHICH IS 66, 27 SQUARE FEET AND 1503 WEST 10TH WAS THIS DIRECTLY TO THE WEST OF THIS PROPERTY, WHICH IS 53, 27 SQUARE FEET.

THAT'S ALL BASED ON TRAVIS CAD DATA, THE STREET FACADE IT'S SCALE TO ALIGN WITH THE EAVE HEIGHT OF 14, 11 WEST 10TH TO THE EAST HERE, THE SECOND FLOOR, THE OFFICE OF THE LOWER CEILING HEIGHT.

THEY PUT SIX OVER AN 11 FOOT CEILING HEIGHT ON THE FIRST FLOOR GARAGE, THE FRONT FACADE HEIGHT OF 21 FEET FROM GRADE TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE PRIMARY ROOF IS FAIRLY CONSISTENT OR LOWER THAN OTHER TWO STORY STRUCTURES ARE COMPLETED IN CENTRAL AUSTIN.

FOR INSTANCE, WE DID A RENOVATION ADDITION AT 41 0 5, BUT I HAVE AN MD AND THE HIGH PARK HISTORIC DISTRICT AND HAD A 24 FOOT PLATE HEIGHT FROM GRADE FOR IT'S TWO STORY PORTION FOR IF YOU HIRE THIS PROPOSAL.

UM, THE EXTERIOR CLOTTING IS A TECTONIC CLOUDING, WHICH WILL CLOSELY RESEMBLE A LOCAL LOOTERS LIMESTONES TO SLIDE 10.

UM, SLIDE 11.

THE PROJECT ALSO FEATURES A FULL BASEMENT, UH, BELOW BOTH THE MAIN HOUSE AND GARAGE BOOKCASES.

THE BASEMENT IS FULLY BELOW GRADE WITH OVER 95% OF EXTERIOR WALLS COVERED SLIDE 13, WE'VE OUTLINED OUR NEIGHBORHOOD OUTREACH EFFORTS.

IN THIS SLIDE.

WE'VE HAD THREE MEETINGS WHERE THEY WANTED A ZONING COMMITTEE, NOT ALL ADJACENT NEIGHBORS ON SITES WOULD READ THE PROJECT.

WE'D ALSO LIKE TO KNOW THAT WE ATTEMPTED TO GET A SPOT ON THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW COMMITTEE IN THE FALL, BUT WE'RE TOLD BY STAFF THAT WE NEEDED TO PRIORITIZE.

THEY NEEDED TO PRIOR TO DR.

LANDMARK AND LOCAL HISTORIC DISTRICT PRODUCTS OVER NATIONAL REGISTERED DISTRICT PROPERTIES AND CLOSING, WE LOOKED FORWARD TO THE COMMISSIONER'S COMMENTS AND CONTINUED CONVERSATION WITH THE NEIGHBORS AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AS WE MOVED THIS PROJECT FROM DESIGN THROUGH CONSTRUCTION TO COMPLETION.

THANK YOU.

ARE THERE OTHER SPEAKERS, UM, STAFF, IF YOU STILL HAVE THOSE SLIDES, COULD WE SAY AN ELEVATION DRAWING? I THINK THE SPEAKER SPOKE PRETTY QUICKLY, BUT I DON'T THINK WE SAW AN ELEVATION.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

AND THERE ARE NO OTHER SPEAKERS.

[00:50:01]

THERE ARE NO OTHER SPEAKERS FOR THE SCIENCE CLASS AS MR. RAMIREZ COME IN.

IT DOES NOT SEEM SO.

OKAY.

UM, WE'LL GO ON TO D 2 23 0 5 RHEA.

GRANTED, WE HAVE THE APPLICANT ON THE LINE, MR. MIKE MICONE.

OKAY.

MR. MCCOMB, MR. MCKOWN, ARE YOU ON THE LINE? CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? I CAN GO AHEAD, MR. MCKOWN.

YOU CAN GO AHEAD.

OKAY.

MIKE MCCOWEN REPRESENTING THE OWNER, UH, SOMEWHAT SURPRISED TO HAVE ANYONE TO OPPOSE THIS CASE.

UH, THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS FAIRLY CLEAR THAT IT DOES NOT MEET THE STANDARDS FOR HISTORIC ZONING.

UH, IT IS IN THE UNIVERSITY NEIGHBORHOOD OVERLAY, UH, HIGH DENSITY DISTRICT, UH, THE INNER WEST CAMPUS, ALL OF THIS AREA WAS SUPPORTED BY THE SEVEN NEIGHBORHOODS THAT SURROUND THE UNIVERSITY FOR REDEVELOPMENT.

THE CONDITION OF THE HOUSE AS, UM, SUPPORT SHOWN IN THE APPLICATION IS VERY POOR.

AND IN FACT, THERE ARE CODE AUSTIN CODE, UH, ISSUES, UH, WITH THE HOUSE, THE STRUCTURE IS CURRENTLY VACANT.

IT IS IN VERY POOR CONDITION, UH, ALL AROUND.

IT HAS BEEN A RENTAL PROPERTY FOR OVER 30 YEARS, AND IT IS NO LONGER ECONOMICALLY VIABLE GIVEN ITS ADJACENCY TO OTHER REDEVELOPED PROPERTIES IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND THE OWNER HAS ALSO SUBMITTED A PETITION AGAINST ZONING IT HISTORIC.

SO BASED UPON ALL OF THOSE, UH, ITEMS, UH, WE DO NOT FEEL THAT IT'S APPROPRIATE TO BE A ZONE HISTORIC, THE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, BUT IT'S FAIRLY STRAIGHT FORWARD CASE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, MR. MCKOWN.

IS THERE ANYONE ELSE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR? NO, BUT WE DON'T HAVE, UM, AN OPPOSITION.

UH, OKAY.

OKAY.

WE HAVE A MISS PAULA COACHMAN IN OPPOSITION.

OKAY.

PAULA MIN, IF YOU'RE ON THE LINE, PLEASE, UH, PLEASE STATE YOUR, UH, CASE FOR OPPOSITION.

YES.

THANK YOU.

UM, I'D LIKE A POSTPONEMENT ON THIS PROPERTY TO, UM, LOOK AT THE, THE CONDITION OF THE PROPERTY.

I DO NOT THINK THAT OWNERS OF PROPERTY TO LET THEIR PROPERTY FALL INTO DISREPAIR AND TO BECOME DILAPIDATED, SHOULD BE REWARDED BY ALLOWING THEM TO DEMOLISH THE PROPERTY.

IT'S UP TO THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY TO KEEP, KEEP THE PROPERTY IN GOOD REPAIR.

SO DON'T FEEL LIKE THE ARGUMENT THAT THE HOUSE IS IN BAD CONDITION IS A VALID ARGUMENT TO RAISE THE PROPERTY.

THANK YOU.

IS THERE ANY, DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY, ANY QUESTIONS FOR MS. KOFMAN? OKAY.

ARE THERE OTHER SPEAKERS IN OPPOSITION? NO, BUT, UM, IF MIKE, MR. MCKELLAN MIGHT WISH TO REBUT.

YES.

GO AHEAD.

CHAIR AND MEMBERS, MADAM CHAIR AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION.

BASICALLY THIS HOUSE IS EVEN IF IT WERE IN PRISTINE CONDITION, BASED UPON THE TRAVIS COUNTY APPRAISAL DISTRICTS OF VALUATION OF A REAL ESTATE IN THE AREA, BASED UPON IT BEING IN THE UNIVERSITY NEIGHBORHOOD OVERLAY DISTRICT, UH, WILL NOT MAKE IT ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE TO RESTORE A HOUSE OF THIS, UH, UH, SITUATE OF THIS SIZE AND THIS LOCATION.

THEREFORE, IT'S JUST NOT FEASIBLE TO CONTINUE TO HAVE IT, EVEN IF IT WERE TO BE ZONED HISTORIC, UH, THE, UH, VALUES THAT THE HISTORIC COMMISSION AND, UM, AGENCIES COULD GIVE IT, UH, IN REDUCTION OF TAX VALUE WOULD STILL NOT BE SUFFICIENT BECAUSE THE INCOME THAT WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR ALARM PROJECT THIS SIZE RESTORED WOULD NOT COVER THE COST OF THE TAXES THAT WOULD BE AGAINST IT.

SO IT'S JUST SIMPLY NOT A FEASIBLE SITUATION FROM ANY, UM, ANY VIEW OF THE PROPERTY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I, THIS KIND OF GOES TO OUR EARLIER DISCUSSION OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

UM, MOVING ON TO D 4 29 0 3 BREEZE TERRACE.

DO WE HAVE ANYONE TO SPEAK?

[00:55:01]

WE HAVE THE PROPERTY ON THE LINE AND MR. MANUEL PUNA.

YES, I AM HERE.

OKAY.

PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

MANUEL .

OKAY.

GOOD EVENING TO ALL I AM THE OWNER OF 29 0 3 BREEZE TERRACE, AND I SUPPORT THE APPROVAL OF THE DEMOLITION PERMIT FOR THE HOUSES THAT SIT ON THE PROPERTY.

FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALLOWING ME TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION.

WE BOUGHT THIS HOUSE WITH THE INTENTION TO BUILD TWO HOUSES.

BOTH OF WHICH ARE FOR MY FAMILY.

THE FRONT HOUSE IS TO BE USED BY MY SISTER AND HER WIFE.

THE BACK HOUSE IS FOR MYSELF, MY WIFE AND OUR BABY.

THAT IS ON THE WAY WE SEE THIS PROPERTY AS OUR FAMILY'S MEETING SPOT, THE TURMOIL AND POLITICAL DISASTER IN OUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN, VENEZUELA MADE IT SO THAT WE HAVE LIVED APART FOR MANY YEARS.

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY TWO DECADES, WE'RE ALL TOGETHER IN THE SAME CITY.

AFTER LOOKING AT MANY OPTIONS IN AUSTIN, WE WERE DRAWN TO THIS LOCATION FOR MANY REASONS, BUT WE UNDERSTAND THAT TO ACHIEVE THE KIND OF HOME THAT WE WANT.

WE WOULD NEED TO DO A NEW CONSTRUCTION AT THE MOMENT OF PURCHASE.

THE PROPERTY WAS NOT LISTED AS A HISTORIC LANDMARK.

I MUST ALSO ADD THAT WE DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ASSESSMENT THAT THE BUILDING HOLDS A HIGH LEVEL OF INTEGRITY.

IT IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH WE WOULD HAVE TO SPEND.

AND WE HAVE IMITATING THIS HOUSE AND BRING IT UP TO THE STANDARD WE WOULD ACHIEVE WITH A NEW HOME.

FIRST OF ALL, WE WOULD HAVE TO REPLACE ALL OF THE SIDING AND THE CURRENT HOUSE.

I WOULD NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE RAISING MY FAMILY IN A HOUSE WITH A SPECIAL SETTING.

WE ALL KNOW THE NEGATIVE OUTCOME.

THIS COULD HAVE EVEN MORE WHEN I CAN NOT BE SURE THAT THE HOUSE HAS BEEN PROPERLY CARED FOR.

AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT MY FAMILY WILL BE THE ONE BEARING THE CONSEQUENCES.

THE WINDOWS WOULD HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY REPLACED.

THE HOUSE WOULD HAVE TO BE RE INSULATED NEW AGE VAC SYSTEMS INSTALLED.

THERE WAS A TREE MORE SPECIFICALLY EQUIPPED THAT QUIP MARITAL ENCROACHING, ASIDE OF THE BACK UNIT, MASSIVE INVESTMENTS IN ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING WOULD NEED TO BE MADE.

THE FRONT HOUSE HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED IN A VERY LONG TIME, AND I CAN NOT VOUCH FOR ITS UP-KEEPING.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT FACT IS THAT ON THE PROPERTY SITS A BEAUTIFUL PECAN THAT WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THE INITIAL DESIGN OF THE HOUSES.

WE ARE EXTREMELY EXCITED WITH THE ARCHITECTURAL OPPORTUNITY THAT HAVING SUCH A GORGEOUS STREET PROVIDES TO A NEW PROJECT.

I UNDERSTAND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PREVIOUS OCCUPANTS AND VALUE WHAT THEY MEANT FOR THE CITY OF BOSTON, BUT FROM WHAT I FOUND, THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE NOT RELATED TO THE HOUSE ITSELF.

WE'RE MORE THAN WILLING TO ALLOW A THIRD DOCUMENTATION OF THEIR PROPERTY.

IF YOU FEEL IT HAS VALUE TO KEEP PICTURES OF THE HOUSE WHERE IT'S HISTORIC, LOGAN'S LET ME ADD THAT WE ARE EXTREMELY EXCITED IN BECOMING A PART OF THIS COMMUNITY AND CONTRIBUTING TO IT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU.

ARE THERE OTHER SPEAKERS IN FAVOR OF THE APPLICATION? YES, WE HAVE A MR. ALEJANDRO PIANO.

HELLO.

GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

HI, STATE YOUR NAME PLEASE FOR THE RECORD.

AND GO AHEAD.

MY NAME IS ALEJANDRO YANA AND I'M SPEAKING FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE DEMOLITION PERMIT AT 2 903 BREEZE TERRACE.

UH, AND I'M ONE OF THE OWNERS OF THE PROPERTY.

UH, FIRST I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE FORMER RESIDENTS OF THIS HOUSE, MR. AND MRS. WALL TO THE FABRIC OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN AND THEIR RESPECTIVE FIELDS OF STUDY.

AT THE SAME TIME THOUGH, I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO ALLOW NEW NEIGHBORS, THE CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR OWN MARK CREATE THEIR OWN LEGACY AND THAT IN THEIR OWN WAY TO THE FABRIC OF THE COMMUNITY, I IMMIGRATED TO AUSTIN IN 2006 FROM VENEZUELA IN A LARGE PART DUE TO THE POLITICAL SITUATION SINCE THEN AND THROUGH GREAT HARDSHIP, MY FAMILY AND I HAVE BEEN SLOWLY MANAGING TO GATHER AGAIN IN THE SAME PLACE.

MY BROTHER, MANUEL, WE JUST SPOKE, MOVED TO AUSTIN FROM CARACAS, WITH HIS WIFE IN 2019, MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER IN 2020, MY SISTER AND HER WIFE HAD PLANS TO MOVE HERE IN A COUPLE OF YEARS.

IT'LL BE THE FIRST TIME OUR FAMILY LIVES TOGETHER IN THE SAME CITY AND OVER 20 YEARS.

AND IT WOULD BE THE FULFILLMENT OF THE DREAM FOR ME AND MY PARENTS.

THE BRIEF TERRACE PROPERTY IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE CENTER OF OUR FAMILY LIFE.

MY BROTHER AND HIS WIFE ARE PLANNING TO BUILD A UNIT FOR THEMSELVES AND MY SISTER, THE SECONDARY UNIT IN THE PROPERTY.

IT'S THE PLACE WHERE WE WILL GATHER MOST SUNDAYS AND WHERE MY PARENTS WILL GET TO SEE THEIR GRANDSON GROW UP THE HOUSE.

THAT'S IT CURRENTLY EXISTS, COULD NOT ACCOMMODATE OUR FAMILY'S PLAN.

MR. AND MRS. WALLS CONTRIBUTION SHOULD BE CELEBRATED BY THE INSTITUTIONS THAT THEY SERVE AND BY THE PEOPLE THAT REMEMBER THEM AND SADLY, THIS HOUSE IS NOT AS SPECIFICALLY NOT A SPECIFIC REMINDER OF THEIR WORK OR LIVE, AND THERE'S NO REASONABLE EXPECTATION THAT THIS WOULD CHANGE.

IF THIS DESIGNATION TAKES PLACE.

HOWEVER, A HISTORIC DESIGNATION WOULD GREATLY IMPACT MY FAMILY.

IT WOULD PREVENT US FROM FULFILLING OUR PLANS IN A REASONABLE TIME AND AT A REASONABLE EXPENSE AND ON A SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT, BOTH EMOTIONAL AND FINANCIAL.

WE ASK THAT WE ARE AFFORDED THE SAME OPPORTUNITY THAT THE WALLS WERE GIVEN WHEN

[01:00:01]

THEY PURCHASED THEIR PROPERTY TO LIVE AND WORK AND PRODUCE AND CONTRIBUTE ON OUR OWN TERMS. AND IN OUR OWN HOME, WE ALSO ASK THAT YOU, THE CLIENT HAS STARTED THIS IGNATION AND APPROVED THE DEMOLITION PERMIT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ANYONE ELSE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR? WE HAVE A MR. RYAN.

MCKELL WE'RE A REGISTERED.

OKAY.

LET ME JUST TURN RIGHT.

YES.

HELLO PRESCHOOL RIGHT HERE.

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

OKAY.

I AM VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF THE DEMOLITION PERMIT.

UM, I FEEL LIKE I'M CURIOUS ABOUT TO PLAY THE PIANO AFTER JURY.

WE REALIZED AFTER THOSE TWO FROM THE PIANOS, BUT, UH, I OWN TWO PROPERTIES ON THE STREET I HAVE FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, SOME OF THE STREET EXTREMELY WELL.

AND, UM, I THINK BY THE STAFF ZONE RECOGNITION, THE, THE STRUCTURE ITSELF IS EXTREMELY MODEST.

AND AS A PROPERTY OWNER ON THE HOME, I THINK GIVING THE PIANOS THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL HERE AND NOW IS GOING TO OFFER A LOT MORE VALUE TO THE COMMUNITY OF THE STREETS.

YOU KNOW, THEN WE'LL, UH, PRESERVING THE HOME OF THE WALL WHOSE IT SOUNDS LIKE HAD REALLY WONDERFUL HISTORIC LIVES, BUT MAINTAINING THAT PROFIT PRETTY, YOU WILL NOT HELP MAINTAIN THEIR LEGACY IN ANY MEANINGFUL WAY WHERE IT'S GIVING THE PIANOS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD THEIR FAMILY HOME.

IT JUST SEEMS LIKE A MUCH BETTER OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR SPECIFIC NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU.

ANYONE ELSE? WE DO HAVE ONE SPEAKER REGISTERED FOR OPPOSITION, BUT I DO NOT KNOW IF HE IS ON THE LINE.

UH, MR. ETHAN SMITH, MR. SMITH, ARE YOU ON THE LINE? ETHAN SMITH.

OKAY.

AND HE WAS THE ONLY ONE TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION? YES, IT DOES NOT SEEM HE IS ON THE LINE.

OKAY.

UM, YEAH, IT DOESN'T SEEM, SO LET'S GO ONTO THE NEXT CASE, WHICH IS 2007 WILLOW STREET.

YES.

WE HAVE ANYONE TO SPEAK ON THAT APPLICATION.

WE HAVE THE APPLICANT ON THE LINE, MR. TRAVIS YOUNG.

OKAY.

MR. YOUNG.

GOOD EVENING.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, WE CAN GO AHEAD.

UM, MY NAME IS TRAVIS YOUNG.

I'M THE APPLICANT REPRESENTING THE PROPERTY OWNERS.

UM, I AM ALSO AN ARCHITECT AND A FEW YEARS AGO, I DESIGNED AN ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT TO BE PLACED AT THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY AT 2007 WILLOW IN WHICH THE CURRENT OWNERS OF THE PROPERTY NOW HAVE RESIDED.

THEIR ULTIMATE PLAN WAS TO BUILD A NEW HOUSE ON THE FRONT PORTION OF THE PROPERTY.

AND THE BEGINNING PORTION OF THAT DISCUSSION AFTER HAVING LIVED IN THE ADU FOR A FEW YEARS NOW, UM, IS, IS, IS ULTIMATELY POSSIBLE.

UM, AND, UH, THE FIRST STEP IS TO SUBMIT FOR THE DEMOLITION OR RELOCATION APPLICATION FOR THE FISTING HOUSE ON THE FRONT OF THE PROPERTY.

UH, SO I AM SPEAKING, UH, FOR THEM.

THEY ARE ALSO ON THE LINE, UH, IF YOU NEED TO, UH, HAVE THEM ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

HOWEVER, UH, I AM SPEAKING IN FAVOR OF THE, UH, DEMOLITION APPLICATION TONIGHT.

SO THANK YOU.

OKAY.

IF THEY DID NOT SIGN UP, THEN, UM, THEY CANNOT SPEAK, BUT IF THEY DID SIGN UP IN TIME, UH, BY ALL MEANS THEY CAN SPEAK TO THE APPLICATION.

THEY DID SIGN UP, I BELIEVE.

YEAH.

OKAY.

UH, IF, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK, UM, UH, APPLICANTS, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND DO SO.

HI, MY NAME IS AUSTIN BRAWNER, UM, I'M THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE AND OKAY.

JUST WANT TO REITERATE WHAT TRAVIS SAID.

WE LOVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO BUILDING A, UH, A BEAUTIFUL NEW HOUSE THAT, UM, REPRESENT THE LOVELY, UH, NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND YEAH, WE WERE IN FAVOR OF THE DEMOLITION.

OKAY.

THIS IS A PRETTY NICE HOUSE THAT REPRESENTS THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT, UM, IS THERE ANOTHER PERSON WHO'D LIKE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF DEMOLITION? WE HAVE A MISS CHELSEA REGISTERED TO SPEAK IN FAVOR.
