AND THE LETTER FROM THE COLONY PARK NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, THERE, THERE WERE SOME USES FROM THEIR LIST THAT WERE NOT INCLUDED IN THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION.

THE FIRST WAS LIMITED WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION BECAUSE IT IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE GR AND UW ZONING CATEGORY THAT THEY WERE WORK LISTING.

SO WE DIDN'T INCLUDE THAT.

THE OTHER ONES WERE GROUP HOME, FAMILY, HOME AND RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT.

AND OUR DEPARTMENT HAS DETERMINED THAT WE CAN NO LONGER PROHIBIT THOSE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SO THAT SOUNDS LIKE THAT HAS BEEN READ INTO THE RECORD THEN.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, THEN WE HAVE A DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT FOR B ONE AND, UM, WHO DO WE HAVE TO, I HAVE THE SPEAKERS LIST AND I JUST HAVE TO GET IT FROM THE PRINTER, BUT WHO DO WE HAVE SPEAKING? UM, SO I, I ASSUME SPEAKING IN FAVOR

[B1. Rezoning: C14-2020-0146 - 11705 Research Blvd Zoning; District 6]

OF THE POSTPONEMENT WILL BE AMANDA SWORE AND SHE WILL HAVE, I BELIEVE THREE MINUTES.

IS THAT CORRECT? ANDREW CHAIR.

COMMISSIONER HE'S ON ANDOVER.

UH, SO THE DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT CONSISTS OF TWO INDIVIDUALS FROM EACH SIDE FOR AND AGAINST THE POSTPONEMENT, ALL IN REGARDS, ONLY SPEAKING TO THE MERITS, ONLY SPEAKING TO THE DISCUSSION AND NOT THE MERITS OF THE CASE.

AND IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THERE'S ALSO A REQUEST FROM COMMISSIONER SMITH WHO HAS REQUESTED THAT THIS ITEM BE POSTPONED AS WELL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY, COMMISSIONER, UM, I MEAN, COMMISSIONER, UM, AMANDA, UM, SWORE YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK IN FAVOR AND YOU CAN ALSO SAY WHO THE SECOND PERSON IS, WHO WILL BE SPEAKING IN FAVOR.

AND THEN THERE'S A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK, UM, IN CASE THE ISSUE IN CASE THIS AGENDA ITEM WENT WAS HEARD TODAY.

AND SO I'LL JUST ASK THEM TO SPEAK, UM, UH, TO, THEY CAN TELL ME AT THE BEGINNING OF THEIR OPPOSITION IN CASE THEY ARE OPPOSED, UM, THEY CAN, THEY CAN SORT THEMSELVES OUT.

I HOPE.

OKAY.

UM, AMANDA SWORE, ARE YOU THERE YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THE POSTPONEMENT.

YES, I I'M AMANDA SWORE WITH RENDERED ROOTS BECAUSE THE APPLICANT FOR THE REQUESTED COMMENT FOR TWO WEEKS, THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THE COMMISSION'S LONGSTANDING HISTORY OF ALLOWING CONTROVERSIAL CASES TO BE HEARD BY A, FOR ALMOST FULL COMMISSION AND THE COMMISSION MISSING THREE MEMBERS OR OVER A QUARTER OF THE COMMISSIONERS.

IT'S JUST NOT THAT DURING A CONTROVERSIAL CASE, A FULL COMMISSION IS THE REASON THERE ARE 11 MEMBERS ON THIS COMMISSION.

SO ALLOW FOR A ROBUST DISCUSSION.

ADDITIONALLY, THIS WILL EFFECTIVELY BE THE APPLICANT'S FIRST REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT.

NOW THAT THE CASE IS COMPLETE AND THE CA DRAFT MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, WE DID MAKE AN INITIAL REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT ON JUNE 1ST FOR TWO WEEKS.

AND THAT WAS OUR POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS TO ALLOW THE AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT TO FINISH REVIEW OUR TIA AND PROVIDE A DRAFT CIA MEMO.

THE TIA IS NOT PART OF THIS ZONING CASE, BUT WE HAD HEARD FROM NEIGHBORS THAT THEY WANTED TO SEE THE RESULTS OF THE PENDING CIA.

SO WE REQUESTED THAT POSTPONEMENT TO ALLOW FOR THE AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT TO FINISH THEIR REVIEW AND ALL REALITY THAT LIKELY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASSESSED SUMMIT.

WE SHOULD HAVE REQUESTED THAT THAT BE THE CASE.

THE LAST REQUEST REQUEST ON THAT TO THIS

[00:10:01]

DATE WAS ON JUNE 15TH.

AND THAT WAS A SACRIFICE, NOT AN APPLICANT REQUEST BECAUSE THE TA MEMO WAS NOT READY IN TIME FOR THE HEARING.

AGAIN, WE ARE ONLY ASKING FOR WHAT HAS BEEN GRANTED FOR A LONG TIME BY THIS COMMISSION THAT OUR EFFECTIVE FIRST POSTPONEMENT REQUEST IS GRANTED AND THAT A CONTROVERSIAL CASE HAVING THE RIGHT TO BE HEARD BY A FULL OR ALMOST FULL COMMISSION, NOT A COMMISSION MISSING 25% OF ASSEMBLERS NOT GRANTING THIS POSTPONEMENT WILL DEPRIVE THE CASE TO THE FULL HEARINGS AND CHEMISTS THAT ARE NOT THE RIGHT TO WEIGH IN.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, WHO ELSE WILL BE SPEAKING IN FAVOR OF THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST? OKAY.

WE WILL, I WILL JUST SEE THE SPEAKER IN SABRE.

OH, OKAY.

THANKS.

OKAY.

AND THEN FROM THE LIST OF, UM, FOLKS, OTHER FOLKS WHO HAVE SIGNED UP, ARE THERE TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE STEPPING FORWARD TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION TO THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST VARIABLE FIRST HEAR FROM MR. STEVEN SCHRADER.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

MY NAME AND SPEAKING AS PRESIDENT OF THE SEMINOLE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION ON BEHALF OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WE POST THE LAST MINUTE REQUEST TO POSTPONE THE REZONING CASE OF THE 3M PROPERTY.

ON RESEARCH BOULEVARD, IT'S APPROVED.

THIS WOULD BE THE FIFTH POSTPONEMENT OF THE CASE.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT SOME COMMISSIONERS ARE NOT PRESENT TONIGHT, BUT SINCE THE QUORUM EXISTS, THEN WE SHOULD MOVE FORWARD WITH THE PROCESS CONSIDERING THAT IT'S SUMMER VACATION SEASON, FUTURE MEETINGS, MALE SELECT ONE OR MORE COMMISSIONERS.

AND WE DOUBT THAT CONTINUED POSTMA POSTPONEMENTS ARE IN ANYONE'S INTERESTS.

WE HAVE WORKED DILIGENTLY TO PREPARE FOR EACH OF THE SCHEDULED MEETINGS TO PROVIDE THE COMMISSIONERS INFORMATION.

WE THINK THEY WILL FIND USEFUL TONIGHT.

THE LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE HAVE DEDICATED TIME TO BE AVAILABLE AND TO MAKE THEIR VIEWS KNOWN THEIR UPCOMING PLANS AND SCHEDULES WOULD BE IMPACTED IF THEY WERE REQUIRED TO RETURN.

AGAIN, WE DO NOT SUPPORT A POSTPONEMENT.

THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERATION.

UH, MR. BEAU PERRY WILL ALSO MAKE A STATEMENT, UH, TO, UH, UH, OPPOSING THE POSTPONEMENT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND MR. PERRY, PERRY 11 9 0 6 MUSTANG CHASE.

I'M SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF A SPECIAL BOARD COMMITTEE TO REVIEW THIS DEVELOPMENT OF IVANA.

UH, WE, UH, WE ALSO BOTH OPPOSE POSTPONING THIS PARTICULAR CASE.

UH, AGAIN, IT'S BEEN FIVE DIFFERENT TIMES.

THIS WOULD MAKE A POSTPONEMENT, THE DEVELOPERS SHOULD BE READY TO STATE THEIR CASE FOR IT AT ANY AND ALL MEETINGS.

AND ADDITION, WE BELIEVE THAT ALL THE COMMISSIONERS WHO ARE PRESENT ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE OF MAKING THE DECISION BEING THAT YOU DO HAVE A QUORUM THERE.

WE HAVE NOT ENGAGED WITH THE DEVELOPER, AS THEY HAD SAID, NOR HAVE ANY POSTPONEMENTS BEEN DONE FROM THE DEVELOPER ON THE RESIDENT BEHALF OF THIS, AS YOU CAN SEE A LARGE LIST OF PEOPLE.

AND ONCE IT BECAME KNOWN, THE DEVELOPER ASKED FOR IT TO BE POSTPONED ONLY AT THIS TIME WHEN THEY SAW THAT THE RESIDENTS HAD YET AGAIN, MADE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE EVEN WITH THE LONG WEEKENDS.

SO WE DEFINITELY OPPOSE ANY POSTPONEMENT OF THIS AND WE'RE READY TO SPEAK OUR CASE TONIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND NOW, UM, EMOTION, A DISCUSSION, WHATEVER YOU ALL WANT TO DO.

UM, I WANT TO ASK, IS IT POSSIBLE TO, UM, HEAR PEOPLE SPEAK AND THEN POSTPONE CONSIDERATION AS WELL? LIKE GET PEOPLE'S HANDS TO SPEAK THAT ARE ON THE LINE TO SPEAK, BUT ALSO ALLOW US TO POSTPONE BECAUSE I JUST AS SPECIFIC, ESPECIALLY WITH A SPECIFIC COMMISSIONER ASKING TO BE ABLE TO SPECIFY AND BE ABLE TO HEAR THE CASE, WELL, I'LL ACTUALLY ADDRESS THAT BECAUSE A LONG TIME AGO, I ASKED TO HAVE A VERY CONTENTIOUS CASE POSTPONED AND NOT ONLY WAS IT IGNORED, BUT I KIND OF PAID THE PRICE FOR IT FOR A LONG TIME.

SO, UM, I'M JUST SHOWING MY CARDS UP THERE RIGHT THERE.

BUT SECOND, WE TEND TO HEAR CASE WE JUST TEND TO DO THE POSTPONEMENT IN OUR VOTE IN THIS RIGHT NOW.

AND OUR DISCUSSION IS LIMITED TO GRANTING THE POSTPONEMENT.

SO, AND WE HAVE TO DO THE AFFIRMATIVE TO GRANT A POSTPONEMENT.

UM, SO THAT'S WHY I WAS ASKING FOR A MOTION WE CAN, WHILE WE'RE HEARING THE CASE, WE CAN DECIDE SOMETHING ELSE.

BUT, UM, BUT RIGHT NOW WE HAVE TO JUST MAKE A DECISION.

[00:15:01]

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER, DINKLER YOU NEED TO UNMUTE.

HM.

UH, MY APOLOGIES.

UM, I WOULD MOVE TO DENY THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST.

UH, I DON'T DO THAT LIGHTLY, GENERALLY.

I'M ONE WHO HAS, HAS SUPPORTED REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT, BUT WE'VE HAD THE, UH, MEMO FROM STAFF FOR THE TIA S IS ON A DIFFERENT TRACK FOR QUITE A WHILE.

THERE'S REALLY NO INFORMATION, UM, THAT I THINK CHANGES THIS, THIS WAS DATE WAS SCHEDULED BY THE APPLICANT.

AND BY THE WAY, OUR RULES DON'T REQUIRE THAT WE POSTPONE ITEMS FOR COMMISSIONERS AND THAT HASN'T BEEN CONSISTENTLY APPLIED.

UM, I THINK THERE WERE SOME, SO I MOVE THAT.

WE DENY THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST.

I'M READY TO HEAR THE CASE AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER KING.

IS THAT IT? OKAY THEN? YES, TO MY, MY, UH, SECOND, UH, UH, I JUST WOULD LIKE THERE TO BE A DISCUSSION ON THIS.

SO I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DISCUSSION THAT WE MAY HAVE ON THIS, UH, AND THIS MOTION HERE, BUT IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE WITH ALL THE POSTPONEMENTS ON THIS CASE, THERE HAVE BEEN PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR, UH, THE DETAILS TO BE WORKED OUT HERE.

AND I THINK AS THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S READY TO GO AND THEY'VE BEEN READY TO GO MULTIPLE TIMES.

SO, UH, I'M KIND OF SURPRISED ABOUT THIS LAST MINUTE, UH, YOU KNOW, POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS.

SO ANYWAY, I'M, I'M, YOU KNOW, I THINK WE'RE READY TO GO.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UH, COMMISSIONER RAY, AND THEN, UM, WE'LL USE THE LITTLE HANDS THING UNLESS PEOPLE HAVEN'T FIGURED THAT OUT, BUT I'LL GO TO COMMISSIONER RAY AND I'VE FINALLY POPPED UP THE HANDS THING.

ALWAYS GOOD TO BE REMINDED OF THE HAND THING.

UM, I WANT TO MAKE JUST FOR THE SAKE OF DISCUSSION AND EVERYONE KNOWING WHERE WE STAND ON THIS MATTER, UM, I'LL MAKE A SUBSTITUTE MOTION TO APPROVE THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST FROM THE APPLICANT, UH, ESPECIALLY HEARING FROM SPECIFIC COMMISSIONERS THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO WEIGH IN.

I THINK IN THE SPIRIT OF HAVING A GOOD, HEALTHY DISCUSSION ON A MATTER THAT IS HIGHLY CONTESTED.

WE CAN COME BACK AGAIN AND DISCUSS THIS WHEN EVERYONE'S AT THE TABLE.

OH, SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER BRAY.

OKAY.

ANYBODY WISH TO, UM, FURTHER DISCUSSION AND ANY OBSERVATIONS AND IF NOT.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER, COMMISSIONER KING AND THEN COMMISSIONER GREENBERG.

OKAY.

YES, I DID.

I USED THE HAND, SO, OKAY.

SO THANK YOU.

UH, UH, WELL, YOU KNOW, I, I DO, I DO APPRECIATE THAT COMMISSIONERS, YOU KNOW, ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN OUR MEETINGS AND BEING PART OF OUR MEETINGS AND HELPING TO MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT THESE CASES.

YOU KNOW, I DO, AND I DO HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT, YOU KNOW, FOR ALL THE COMMISSIONERS AND, YOU KNOW, I THINK IT'S, IT'S, YOU KNOW, I THINK IT'S KIND OF, YOU KNOW, A LITTLE BIT, I JUST WISHED THAT WE COULD ALL BE HERE FOR ALL MEETINGS, YOU KNOW, AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE.

AND, AND SO, UH, BUT IF THAT BECOMES ONE OF THE KEY FACTORS THAT WE USE IN DETERMINING WHETHER WE'RE GOING TO POSTPONE, THEN EVERY TIME WE DON'T HAVE A FULL COMMISSION THAT COULD BE USED TO JUSTIFY POSTPONING A CASE.

AND I WANT TO BE CAREFUL THAT WE DON'T GET STARTED DOWN THIS, THIS TRAIL OF, UH, IF WE DON'T HAVE A FULL COMMISSIONER, IF WE DON'T HAVE MORE THAN EIGHT OR WHATEVER THAT NUMBER IS THAT WE'VE GOT TO POSTPONE THE CASE, IF IT'S REQUESTED FOR THAT REASON, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A QUORUM HERE AND I THINK THIS CASE HAS BEEN, YOU KNOW, THROUGH THE PROCESS LONG ENOUGH, IT'S, IT'S READY TO GO.

WE HAVE THE INFORMATION WE NEED TO MAKE A DECISION.

SO I, I THINK IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST THAT IT'S READY TO MOVE FORWARD ON THIS CASE.

THANK YOU.

I WOULD LIKE TO JUST STEP IN AND SAY, I TRY TO RESPECT ALSO THE NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE PARTICIPATING AND ESPECIALLY, I MEAN, IT IS, IT IS THE TUESDAY AFTER A HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

AND I THINK HAVING MADE, THEY PEOPLE HAVE MADE A LOT OF EFFORT TO BE HERE.

AND ALSO, I SAY, AS A COMMISSIONER TOO, I'VE MADE A LITTLE BIT OF EFFORT TO BE RUNNING THE MEETING TONIGHT AND TO, UM, TO BE HERE.

AND ALSO I HAVE PREPARED FOR THIS CASE THREE OR FOUR TIMES,

[00:20:05]

ANYBODY ELSE? OKAY.

COMMISSIONER GREENBIRD OKAY.

COMMISSIONER TO REITERATE COMMISSIONER KING'S POINT, UM, PRIOR TO EVEN BEING APPOINTED TO THIS COMMISSION, I PLANNED TO BE AWAY.

SO I WOULD BE AWAY IN TWO WEEKS.

I, I THINK I'LL BE ABLE TO REMOTE IN ANY WAY, BUT I'M NOT SURE BECAUSE IT'S A DIFFERENT TIME ZONE.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL HAVE WIFI.

UM, ARE YOU GONNA POSTPONE AGAIN BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE ARE UNAVAILABLE FOR THE NEXT MEETING AND I THINK THAT'S JUST NOT A GOOD, UM, SORT OF HABIT TO GET INTO.

OKAY.

I SEE NO LITTLE HANDS UP OR ANYTHING.

SO WE'LL TAKE A VOTE, WE'LL TAKE A VOTE ON THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

AND THAT IS TO, UM, POSTPONE THIS CASE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF POSTPONING, THE CASE, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND AND THE, LIKE THE REAL HAND.

UM, SO PLEASE RAISE YOUR HANDS.

AND IT IS, UH, COMMISSION, UH, I SEE COMMISSIONER RAY, ALL THOSE OPPOSED, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

AND SO ONE, TWO, SO THE MOTION FAILS BY ONE TO SEVEN AND THEN WE'LL GO TO THE OTHER MOTION.

BUT I THINK THAT ACTUALLY SHOULD SUFFICE.

YEAH, BECAUSE WE CAN'T, BUT THE MOTION IS TO, YES.

THE POSTPONE FAILS.

RIGHT.

AND SO WE WILL HEAR THE CASE CHAIR COMMISSIONER ON ANDREW RIVERA.

YES.

YES.

JUST REAL QUICK HAVE CITIZENS.

AND THE APPLICANT FOR B3 ARE CURRENTLY ON THE LINE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO STAY ON THE LINE.

AND WHEN WE WERE ABOUT 15 MINUTES ARE TAKEN UP THAT ITEM.

YES.

THAT IS A REALLY NICE FEATURE THAT'S BEEN ADDED.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR REMINDING ME AND THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT, ANDREW.

SO FOR EVERYBODY ON THE LINE FOR B3, IF YOU HEARD THAT, THAT YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED ABOUT 15 MINUTES BEFORE, AND WE ARE GOING TO HEAR THIS CASE B ONE.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

SO NOW WE WILL BEGIN TO PROCEED WITH OUR CASE.

UH, SO SPEAKING THE APPLICANT, UM, SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT WILL BE AMANDA SWORE AND AMANDA, YOU WILL HAVE SIX MINUTES CHAIR.

WOULD YOU LIKE A PRESENTATION FROM STAFF? OH MY GOSH.

OKAY.

GOOD EVENING.

COMMISSIONERS.

I'M SHERRY WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

THIS IS ITEM B ONE, WHICH IS CASEY 14, 20 20 0 1 4 6.

LOCATED AT 1, 1 7 0 5 RESEARCH BOULEVARD.

THE REQUEST IS FROM L I C O L.

I ZONING.

THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IN THIS CASE IS TO RECOMMEND LIC AS ZONING LIMITED INDUSTRIAL CONDITIONAL OVERLAY, COMBINING DISTRICT ZONING, THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY WILL MAINTAIN THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS FROM THE CURRENT ZONING ORDINANCE FOR THIS PROPERTY.

THE FOLLOWING USES SHALL BE PROHIBITED ON THE PROPERTIES FOR IN SALVAGE RESOURCE EXTRACTION, BASIC INDUSTRY AND VEHICLE STORAGE.

AND THE FOLLOWING USES SHALL BE PROHIBITED ON APPROXIMATELY 1.67 ACRES ON THE REAR PORTION OF THE PROPERTY FOR A DEPTH OF 150 FEET, YOU KNOW, WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION EQUIPMENT SALES EQUIPMENT, REPAIR SERVICES, AND KENNELS.

THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION IS A FIVE PLUS ACRE UNDEVELOPED TRACT OF LAND THAT FRONT SAW THE U US HIGHWAY 180 3 OR RESEARCH BOULEVARD DECIDE IS PART OF THE 3M CAMPUS, WHICH SURROUNDS THIS TRACK TO THE NORTH AND EAST.

SO LOTS OF THE WESTERN TECH CONSISTS OF THE GENERAL RETAIL SALES YOUTH AND OFFICE BUILDING.

AND IT'S IN SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCES.

IN THIS REQUEST, THE APPLICANT IS ASKING TO REMOVE THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY THAT WAS PLACED ON THIS PROPERTY AND ZONING CASEY 14 89 0 0 0 9 THROUGH ORDINANCE 9 0 0 1 1 8.

BE THE INTENDED USE FOR THIS SITE IS OFFICE RETAIL.

THE STAFF RECOMMENDS LIC ZONING WITH A CONDITIONAL OVERLAY TO MAINTAIN SOME OF THE CONDITIONS FROM THE CURRENT ZONING ORDINANCE FOR THIS PROPERTY.

THE STAFF RECOMMENDS PROHIBITING SCRAP AND SALVAGE RESOURCE EXTRACTION, BASIC INDUSTRY AND VEHICLE STORAGE USES ON THE PROPERTY.

AND, AND THE STAFF RECOMMENDS PROHIBITING GENERAL WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION EQUIPMENT SALES

[00:25:01]

EQUIPMENT REPAIR SERVICES, AND KENDALL USES ON THE REAR PORTION OF THE PROPERTY FOR A DEPTH OF 150 FEET, PROVIDING THIS CONDITIONAL OVERLAY WILL MAINTAIN A SEPARATION OR A TRANSITION BETWEEN THE INDUSTRIAL ZONING AND SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT TO THE WET LSU ZONING WILL PERMIT THE APPLICANT TO DEVELOP ADDITIONAL USES ON THIS UNDEVELOPED TRACT OF LAND THAT FRONTS ONTO A MAJOR ARTERIAL ROADWAY OR A HIGHWAY.

THE APPLICANT WILL BE REQUIRED TO CONDUCT A NEW TIA AT THE TIME OF SITE PLAN WHEN THE LAND USE AND SINCE, AND SITE LAYOUT WILL BE NO.

AND I'M HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, SHERRY.

AND NOW WE ARE READY FOR THOSE IN FAVOR, BEGINNING WITH THE APPLICANT AMANDA SWORE, AND AMANDA, YOU WILL HAVE SIX MINUTES.

THANK YOU CHAIR.

IF SOMEONE COULD JUST LET ME KNOW WHEN THE PRESENTATION THAT'S PULLED UP, IT'S A FLAT, IT IS IT'S IT'S UP THERE.

UM, WHITE LETTERING AGAINST THE BLACK BACKGROUND.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY THAT I CAN SEE THESE AGAIN, TOO.

I LOOK FOR, I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN I CAN SEE YOU PRESENTING IT, NEW COMMISSIONERS, UH, MY NAME'S AND THE UNDERSCORE WITH TURNER GROUP.

I'M HERE THIS EVENING ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT, WE APPRECIATE YOU LETTING US PRESENT ITS CASE.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE, AS STAFF MENTIONED, THE REZONING REQUEST IN FRONT OF YOU TONIGHT IS FOR A 5.60 ACRE PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT IS CURRENTLY UNDEVELOPED AND ZONED EL ICO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

ON THIS SIDE, THAT 5.6 ACRES IT'S HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW IS WHAT YOU WILL SEE ON THE, ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE OF A LARGER SITE THAT IT'S OUTLINED IN A BLUE DASH, THIS 5.6 ACRES.

IT'S PART OF AN OVERALL REDEVELOPMENT OF A 57 ACRE PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT IS CURRENTLY OCCUPIED BY 3M.

AS YOU SEE ON THIS, I, THE MAJORITY OF THIS PROPERTY OF THE 57 ACRES HAS A STANDARD LIC ZONING.

THIS 5.6 ACRES HAS THE EXISTING LIC AND OUR REQUEST IS TO REBUILD THE PROPERTY TO LA.

YEAH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

BUT AERIAL VIEW OF WHERE THAT FIVE, AGAIN, 5.6 ACRES SITS ON THE FRONT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I'LL WALK THROUGH A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY THAN STAFF DID ON THE LIC REQUESTS, ON WHAT THING, AND WHAT'S GOING, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS THAT HAS A LOT OF ITEMS IN IT THAT ARE FROM, UH, THAT ARE NOT CURRENTLY APPLICABLE TO THE CASES.

SO THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY THAT IS PROPOSING TO STAY ON THE PROPERTY IS REALLY USED DRIVEN.

AND AGAIN, THIS IS ONLY FOR THE 5.6 ACRES, NOT THE LARGER 57 ACRES.

SO THE EXISTING USES THAT ARE PROHIBITED WITH THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY ON THE PROPERTY TODAY, THAT WOULD CARRY OVER TO A NEW EL ICO IF APPROVED WOULD BE TO PRECIPITATE THOSE TRAPPING SALVAGE RESOURCE EXTRACTION, BASIC INDUSTRY AND VEHICLE STORAGE USES ON THE ENTIRETY OF THE PROPERTY.

AND THEN THE PROHIBITION OF THE ADDITIONAL FOUR USES THE GENERAL WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION EQUIPMENT SALES EQUIPMENT, REPAIR SERVICES, AND KENNELS ON THE 1.6 ACRES, WHICH IS A 150 FEET.

AGAIN, THOSE ARE THE USE OF PROHIBITION THAT ARE IN THE EXISTING CONDITIONAL OVERLAY AND WOULD CARRY OVER.

THAT IS A STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION AND AN INITIAL MEETING WITH THE NEIGHBORS REPRESENTATIVE.

THEY INDICATED THAT THEY WOULD LIKE THAT TO STAY, AND WE ARE COMPLETELY AGREEABLE WITH THOSE USE RESTRICTIONS, MAINTAINING AS PART OF THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY FOR THE PROPERTY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THERE ARE SOME USES THAT WE WOULD START WITH ONE.

SO THE EXISTING CONDITIONAL OVERLAY HAS A HEIGHT LIMITATION OF 40 FEET, AND THAT WAS THE NAME SERVER FOR THIS REQUEST.

SO OUR REQUEST IS THAT THE HEIGHT ALLOCATION FOR THIS PROPERTY BE 60 FEET, WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH LA ZONING.

AND IT'S CONSISTENT WITH THE REMAINDER OF THE 57 ACRE PIECE OF THE PROPERTY.

THE, UH, FOLLOWING USES ARE ALSO, UM, WERE PROHIBITED ON THE ENTIRE VIEW OF THE PROPERTY AND THAT WAS CONVENIENT STORAGE, AUTOMOTIVE RENTALS AND HOTEL MOTEL.

THOSE CAME OUT AS PART OF THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION.

AND AGAIN, WE ARE, WE ARE NOT ANTICIPATING PUTTING THOSE ON THE SITE, BUT WE ARE, UH, AGREEING WITH THAT RECOMMENDATION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I'M GOING TO SKIP THROUGH THESE A LITTLE BIT FASTER, BUT THESE ARE THE ITEMS THAT WE ARE ALSO ASKING TO REMOVE.

SO ONE OF THEM BEING THAT THE INITIAL CONDITIONAL OVERLAY HAS A REQUIREMENT THAT THE PROPERTY DEVELOPED IN ACCORDANCE WITH A TIA THAT WAS COMPLETED IN 1989, THAT TIA

[00:30:01]

IS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

UH, WE AS APPLICANTS HAVE DONE ALL OF THE RESEARCH THAT WE CAN, WE'VE REACHED OUT TO THE ORIGINAL TRAFFIC ENGINEERS.

WE'D REACHED OUT TO MULTIPLE CITY DEPARTMENTS, AND I KNOW STAFF HAS DONE THE SAME IN THAT TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS, JUST NO LONGER EXISTS AS PART OF THE REZONING.

A TIA WAS NOT REQUIRED BECAUSE THIS REZONING REQUEST IS FOR A SMALL PORTION OF A LARGER REDEVELOPMENT.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER TONIGHT, WE DID COMPLETE A FULL TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS AS PART OF A SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT THAT IS CURRENTLY IN REVIEW.

AND SO THAT'S TIA MEMOS THAT YOU HAVE IN THE BACKUP THAT WAS RELEASED ON THE 15TH OF JUNE IS A RESULT OF THE OVERALL TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE PROJECT THAT I'LL TOUCH ON AGAIN IN A SECOND.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, THIS NEXT COUPLE ARE ITEMS THAT JUST REALLY AREN'T IN A LOT OF SITES OR IN A LOT OF CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS ANYMORE.

UM, YOU KNOW, BUILDING PERMITS FOR CONSTRUCTION.

SO ALL THE ISSUES ALL REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MET AND SITE PLAN HAS TO BE APPROVED.

THAT'S THAT'S STANDARD PRACTICE NOW, AND THEN CONSTRUCTION, UM, CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN AWARDED TO A ROADWAY AND THAT IS PRIOR.

SO WHEN 83 BEING DEVELOPED IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION, NEXT SLIDE, AS I MENTIONED, THIS REZONING IS FOR A PORTION OF A MUCH SMALLER PIECE OF PROPERTY TODAY, WITHOUT THIS REZONING REQUEST, THIS PROPERTY CAN REDEVELOP WITH OVER 2 MILLION SQUARE FEET.

IT'S ACTUALLY A POST TO 2.5 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF COMMERCIAL USES WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THIS REZONING.

OUR REZONING REQUEST IS AGAIN, TO PRIMARILY ALLOW FOR A 60 FOOT OF BUILDING HEIGHT IN THE AREA THAT SHADED IN RED, WHERE THAT BUILDING WILL ACHIEVE 60 FEET IN HEIGHT IS ONLY THE AREA THAT IS SHADED IN BLUE.

THE REASON FOR THIS REQUEST IS TO ALLOW FOR THE PRESERVATION OF EXISTING TREES AND TO ALLOW FOR AN OVERALL BETTER LAYOUT OF THE PROPERTY.

AGAIN, THIS PROJECT CAN DEVELOP WITH 2.5 MILLION SQUARE FEET BY, RIGHT.

OUR PROPOSAL IS 1.2 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF BUILD OUT.

THAT IS WHAT WAS REVIEWED IN THE TIA.

AND IT IS WHAT IS PROPOSED AS PART OF THIS PROJECT.

AND I DO HAVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS THAT WERE PART OF THE TIA IF THE COMMISSION WOULD LIKE TO HEAR IT AND QUESTIONS.

OKAY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THEN, UM, I HAVE SIGNED UP FOR IN FAVOR CLINTON BACK BAFTA, ARE YOU GOING TO SPEAK, AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES AND ALSO SIGNED UP TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OR BACH TO TYRANNY AND KEVIN BROOK.

THIS IS AMANDA SWORE APP IS OUR TRANSPORTATION ENGINEER AND WILL BE AVAILABLE TO HELP AND ASSIST WITH QUESTIONS.

IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS FROM THE COMMISSION, UM, CLAYTON AND KEVIN ARE WITH OUR APPLICANT TEAM AND WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS AS THE, UM, AS THEY COME UP.

OKAY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THEN WE WILL GO TO THEN, UM, WHO HAVE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK, WHO ARE OPPOSED.

AND FIRST STEP IS STEVEN SCHRADER AND YOU WILL HAVE SIX MINUTES FOLLOWED BY MICAH KING, THEN STEVEN MOLINA, ASHLEY MOLINA.

UM, AND I'LL GO THROUGH THE LIST, UM, AS WE WORK THROUGH IT.

OKAY.

MY NAME IS STEVEN SCHRADER.

I LIVED IN THE SUMMIT OUTS NEIGHBORHOODS FOR 36 YEARS, AND I NOW SERVE AS PRESIDENT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

I'VE ALSO PROVIDED DETAILED WRITTEN COMMENTS, WHICH ARE INCLUDED IN THE BACKUP FOR THE AGENDA ITEM STARTING AT PAGE 44.

WE'RE A SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD THAT IS OVER 60 YEARS OLD IS LOCATED IMMEDIATELY TO THE WEST OF THE 3M PROPERTY.

SUMMIT OAKS IS ACTUALLY THE OLDEST SUB-DIVISION ALONG THE RESEARCH BOULEVARD CORRIDOR WEST OF MOPAC.

FIRST HOUSES WERE BUILT IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE EARLY 1960S BEFORE ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL INDUSTRIAL OFFICE DEVELOPMENT OCCURRED.

SINCE THE NEIGHBORHOOD WAS ESTABLISHED, WE HAVE SEEN CONSTRUCTION ON SURROUNDING PROPERTIES.

WE HAVE FOUND THE ZONING RESTRICTIONS ON BUILDING HEIGHT AND BUILDING SETBACK ARE IMPORTANT FACTORS IN MINIMIZING IMPACTS TO OUR PROPERTY.

LIKEWISE, HAVING RESIDENTIAL BUFFER ZONES THAT ARE UNDISTURBED AS PROVIDED EFFECTIVE SHIELDING FROM THE SURROUNDING OFFICE BUILDINGS, WHEN THE 3M AMTRAK IS AN ANNEX INTO THE CITY OF AUSTIN IN 1976, ZONING OF THE INTERIM ZONING

[00:35:01]

OF INTERIM AA WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1980.

THE SUBJECT TRACK IS REZONED TO OFFICE AS PART OF THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE AREA.

THEN THE OLD ZONING WAS CHANGED TO ELLA LIMITED OFFICE.

WHEN THAT CATEGORY WAS ADDED TO DESIGNATE DEVELOPMENT, PREDOMINANTLY SERVING NEIGHBORHOOD OR COMMUNITY NEEDS IN 1989, THE OWNERS OF THE SUBJECT TRACK PROPOSED A REZONING OF THE PROPERTY FROM ELO TO L I LIMITED INDUSTRIAL THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE PROPERTY OWNER AGREE TO THE CURRENT LA ZONING THAT INCLUDED RESTRICTIONS IN A CONDITIONAL OVERLAY COMBINING DISTRICT.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE AGREEMENT AT THAT TIME PROVIDED THE PROPERTY OWNER SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN ALLOWABLE, IMPERVIOUS COVER, BUILDING COVER AND FLOOR AREA.

WE CONTINUE TO FEEL THAT THE RESTRICTIONS AND THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY WHERE AN EQUITABLE AGREEMENT FOR AGREEING TO THE RELAXED ZONING RESTRICTION, ONE OF THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY LIMITS SIDE OF BUILDINGS TO 40 FEET, THIS LIMIT MAINTAINED THE PREVIOUS BUILDING HEIGHT UNDER THE PRIOR LOE ZONING.

WE CONSIDER THE 40 FOOT LIMIT COMPATIBLE AND COMPLIMENTARY AND SCALE AND APPEARANCE WITH THE RESIDENTIAL ENVIRONMENT OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE GRODDECK CORPORATE PARK OFFICE BUILDINGS IMMEDIATELY NORTH OF SUMMIT OAKS, NONE OF THE DEVELOPMENTS SURROUNDING OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS OVER 40 FEET TALL WITHOUT THE 40 FOOT HEIGHT LIMITATION.

THE PROPOSED REZONING WILL ALLOW CONSTRUCTION THAT DETRACTS FROM THE LIVABILITY OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND OUR PROPERTY VALUES RESTRICTIONS TWO IN THREE CONTAIN A LIST OF 11 USES THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY PROHIBITED UNDER LOI ZONING, WHICH THE PRIOR PROPERTY OWNER AGREED TO RESTRICT IF ALLOWED THE CURRENTLY PROHIBITED USES WITH IMPACT OR NEIGHBORHOOD WITH OBJECTIONABLE NOISE, ODORS, LIGHT POLLUTION, AND TRASH.

ALSO, WE BELIEVE THAT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROPERTY FOR USES SUCH AS AUTOMOTIVE SALES, AUTOMOTIVE, RENTAL SERVICE, ET CETERA, BUT DAMAGE OUR PROPERTY VALUES RESTRICTION.

NUMBER FOUR, THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS ADDRESSES LIMITATIONS ON THE TRAFFIC VOLUME FROM THE PROPERTY.

WHILE WE RECOGNIZE THE NEED TO UPDATE THE TRAFFIC ANALYSIS, WE OPPOSED THE REMOVAL OF THE EXISTING RESTRICTION WITHOUT A FINALIZED UPDATED STUDY TRAFFIC CONGESTION ALONG THE NORTHBOUND SERVICE ROAD OF RESEARCH BOULEVARD IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM ON WEEKDAY AFTERNOONS CARS BACKED UP BUMPER TO BUMPER GOING NORTHBOUND FROM DUVALL TO OAK KNOLL DRIVE THE SERVICE ROAD NARROWS TO TWO LANES AT THE DRIVEWAY FOR THE 3M PROPERTY TWEET COURT IS THE ONLY EXIT FROM SOME FROM SEMINOLE OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD ONTO RESEARCH BOULEVARD.

RIATA TRACE PARKWAY AND THE FREEWAY RAMPS ALL INTERSECT THE SERVICE ROAD WITHIN THE DISTANCE OF ABOUT 400 YARDS.

WE THINK THAT THE TRAFFIC AT THESE LOCATIONS SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY STUDIED SO THAT THE ROADWAYS AND TRAFFIC PATTERNS CAN BE OPTIMIZED BEFORE ANY REZONING OR PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT.

WE RECOGNIZE THE NEED FOR MORE OFFICE SPACE IN NORTHWEST AUSTIN.

WE CONSIDER OFFICE DEVELOPMENT TO BE THE PREFERRED USE OF THE PROPERTIES ADJACENT TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

HOWEVER, THERE NEEDS TO BE A BALANCE BETWEEN THE EXISTING RESIDENTIAL AREAS AND ADDITIONAL OFFICE DEVELOPMENT THAT RECOGNIZES THE VALUE OF ADJACENT HOUSING.

WE REQUEST THAT YOU DENY THE ZONING CHANGE AND MAINTAIN THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY RESTRICTIONS ON BUILDING HEIGHT AND PROHIBITED USES A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF THE TRAFFIC IMPACTS IN THE ENTIRE 50 PLACE.

50 PLUS ACRE DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT PRIOR TO ELIMINATE ELIMINATING THE EXISTING CONDITIONAL OVERLAY RESTRICTION THAT REFERS TO THE PRIOR TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS.

THANK YOU MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, AND I'M PLEASED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN NEXT UP IS MICAH KING FOLLOWED BY STEVEN MOLINA, ASHLEY MOLINA, KELLY, WARREN, WARREN, HOFF, NELDA BRIGGERMAN AND SO FORTH.

SO, UM, MICAH CAN, YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

MADAM VICE CHAIR AND COMMISSIONERS.

UH, MIKEY KING WITH HUSH BLACKWELL ON BEHALF OF THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS.

IF YOU COULD, UH, SOMEONE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN MY PRESENTATION IS UP.

SURE.

BEAR WITH US JUST ONE MINUTE.

OKAY.

[00:40:20]

IT'S COMING UP NOW, SWEETIE.

OKAY.

YEAH.

THANK YOU, ANDREW.

AND YES, THERE IS A PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU.

THEY CAN, MR. RIVERA AND VICE CHAIR.

UM, MIKEY KING ON BEHALF OF THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS.

UH, IF WE CAN GO TO SLIDE TWO, PLEASE, UM, YOU CAN SEE THE BASIS FOR OUR CONCERNS, WHICH IS PRIMARILY TO DO WITH TRAFFIC.

SO WE ARE JUST UP THE FEEDER ROAD, UH, DOWNSTREAM, UH, OF THE 3M PROPERTY.

AND WE ARE SMACK DAB BETWEEN AN OFF RAMP FROM 180 3 ONTO THE RESEARCH BOULEVARD, FURNISH ROAD, AND AN ON RAMP, UM, TO GET BACK ONTO IT.

DURING NON COVID TIMES, WE HAVE ABOUT 525 TO 550 EMPLOYEES, AND SENATE'S IN OUR BUILDINGS.

AND, UM, SO THIS IS A BIG CONCERN ALREADY, UH, IN TERMS OF NAVIGATING THREE LANES OF TRAFFIC, UH, TO GET OFF OF 180 3 AND BACK ONTO IT.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S NO WAY FOR, UM, PEOPLE TO GET IN AND OUT OF THIS AREA.

THIS IS A VERY LANDLOCKED AREA, UH, THE ROADS AND THE SENATE FOLKS NEIGHBORHOOD DON'T CUT THROUGH.

UH, SO WE CAN GO TO SLIDE THREE, PLEASE.

WHAT WE'RE CONCERNED ABOUT.

IT'S NOT JUST THIS ZONING CASE, BUT HOW IT TIES IN TO THE OVERALL REDEVELOPMENT OF THIS LARGER TRACH.

AND THE APPLICANT SAID THAT ALREADY BY RIGHT, THERE CAN BE, I THINK, TWO AND A HALF MILLION SQUARE FEET OF COMMERCIAL SPACE DEVELOPED ON THIS PROPERTY.

AND OUR QUESTION IS, WHY DO YOU NEED ANY MORE, UM, LOOKING AT THE TRIP GENERATIONS, UM, PROJECTIONS, WE HAVE 16,000 UNADJUSTED TRIPS, AND THEN THERE'S A FOUR AND A HALF PERCENT REDUCTION, BUT IF WE CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, I DON'T THINK THAT THAT IS REALLY APPLICABLE IN THIS SITUATION.

SO ON SLIDE FOUR, YOU CAN SEE THAT THE REDUCTION IS FOR THINGS LIKE BICYCLE PARKING AND SHOWERS, A BICYCLE REPAIR STATION, BUT THE CIA AND THEN THE CIA REPORT ACTUALLY SAYS THAT THERE IS NO SIDEWALK OR BICYCLE INFRASTRUCTURE ON THIS PORTION OF THE FURNITURE ROAD.

AND SO IT'S AN INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS PLACE TO BIKE.

AND AS FAR AS I KNOW, THERE'S NO PLAN TO ADDRESS THAT.

I, YOU GO TO SLIDE FIVE.

OUR CONCERNS, UH, JUST TO SUMMARIZE, HAS TO DO WITH ALL OF THE TRAFFIC.

THAT'S LIKE VISITING 180 3, ALL OF THE 3M TRAFFIC ACTS FROM THE RESEARCH BOULEVARD.

ONE OF THE TWO DRIVEWAYS FOR THAT DEVELOPMENT WILL BE UNRESEARCHED AND ALL OF THIS ON THE OAKS FOR THE DENTAL TRAFFIC FLOWING PAST THE TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL, BOARD PROPERTY, AND, UH, HAVING A SOLID WALL OF TRAFFIC THAT WILL MAKE IT MORE DANGEROUS TO TRAVERSE.

IN ADDITION, WE HAVE A LOT OF TRAININGS AT THE TASP OFFICES.

PEOPLE COME FROM THROUGHOUT THE STATE.

THEY'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS AREA OR THE SPECIAL TRAFFIC CHALLENGES THAT THEY WILL FACE.

FINAL SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE'RE ASKING THAT THE CEO REMAIN IN PLACE, ESPECIALLY AS HAS TO DO WITH HEIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND NEXT IS STEVEN MOLINA, THEN ASHLEY MOLINA, THEN KELLY WARM HOFF OR WARN HOFF AND THEN NELDA BRGGERMAN.

SO STEVEN MOLINA AND THEN ASHLEY MELINA, ARE YOU READY? YES.

YES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AWESOME.

THANKS.

YEAH, I THINK OUR CONCERNS ARE, YOU KNOW, WITH THE IMPACT ON THE CHARACTER OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, ALLOWING HIGHER HIGH RESTRICTIONS, BUT THEN ALSO JUST TO KIND OF ECHO WHAT STEPHEN AND MICHAEL HAVE SAID IS THE TRAFFIC IMPACT, UM, YOU KNOW, INCREASING TRAFFIC, NOT ON THAT PORTION OF RESEARCH, BUT ALSO DUVALL WEST COUNTY AREA WHERE THERE'S AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL RIGHT THERE, STARTING VERY DIFFICULT TO TAKE A LEFT OUT OF THAT INTERSECTION.

UM, TEXTILE HAS ALREADY DETERMINED.

THERE'S NO ABILITY TO PUT A LIGHT IN THERE GIVEN ITS PROXIMITY TO THE INTERSECTION OF 180, BASICALLY 180 300 BALL RIGHT THERE.

IT'S TOO CLOSE.

UM, SO MY CONCERNS ARE WITH INCREASED TRAFFIC, NOT ONLY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT THEN THE ABILITY FOR

[00:45:01]

RESIDENTS TO BE ABLE TO GET IN AND GET OUT AND ALSO EMERGENCY VEHICLES TO BE ABLE TO GET IN AND GET OUT.

UM, YOU KNOW, IT'S, IT'S NOT A THROUGH FARE RIGHT NOW, UH, AND I DON'T WANT TO SEE PLANS FOR IT TO BE A THROUGH FARE.

UM, SO LIKE I SAID, A LOT OF THE CONCERNS ARE A CHARACTER AND LIMITING THE HEIGHTS BUILDINGS, AND THEN JUST THE IMPACT, UH, THE TRAFFIC, WHICH IS ALREADY, YOU KNOW, NOT GREAT IN THIS AREA, WHAT THIS COULD POTENTIALLY DO THERE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN NEXT IS ASHLEY MOLINA FOLLOWED BY KELLY WARM HOUSE AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

OKAY.

I THANK EVERYONE.

I AM NOT AS GOING TO BE AS ELOQUENT AS STEVEN OR MICAH, UM, BUT WANTED TO ECHO SOME OF THE SENTIMENTS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN EXPRESSED REGARDING TRAFFIC CONCERNS WITH OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE ARE IN ATLANTA.

UM, WEST CAL IS ONE OF THE PRIMARY ENTRIES AND EXITS FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AS WELL, MUCH LIKE STEVEN WITH THE TWEED NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMIT OAK.

UM, WE ALREADY HAVE CONCERNS.

WE HAVE ELEMENTARY AGE CHILDREN AT ATTEND DAVIS ELEMENTARY, AND, UM, WE ALREADY HAVE CONCERNS WITH EATING DOWN WITH COW.

I JUST TRAFFIC ON WEST COUNTY IN GENERAL, WHILE OUR CHILDREN ARE WALKING OR RIDING THEIR BIKES TO SCHOOL.

UM, THIS, IF YOU LOOK AT THE TRAFFIC SUMMARY, IT'S EXPECTED TO INCREASE THE TRAFFIC PRETTY SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE AREA.

SO I'M JUST VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.

UM, AND I KNOW MY HUSBAND MENTIONED HAVING CONCERNS ABOUT, UM, OUR LOCAL FIRETRUCKS AND AMBULANCES GETTING, UM, THROUGH, AND WE DO ALSO HAVE A FIRE STATION RIGHT NEXT TO THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND DO BOMB.

THAT'S IT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN KELLY HOFF AND THEN NELDA BRGGERMAN AND THEN MARY KAY TIERNAN TIERNAN.

I DON'T BELIEVE I HAVE MS. WENT OFF ON THE TELECONFERENCE.

OH, OKAY.

CIRCLE THAT THEN.

UM, NOW THE BRUEGGEMAN, ARE YOU THERE? AND IF NOT, UH, MARY KAY TIERNAN.

AND IF I'M SORRY, I PRINTED THIS OUT AND I'M ACTUALLY, I JUST, I'M IN A FUNKY FONT.

SO IF I'M MISPRONOUNCING YOUR NAMES, CAUSE THE RS THAT ENDS AND THE AMS ALL LOOK THE SAME.

SO, UM, NAILED THE RUDERMAN.

ARE YOU THERE, IF NOT, WE CAN ALWAYS CIRCLE BACK MARY KAY TIERNAN AND PLEASE IDENTIFY YOUR SIDE, MARY KAY TIERNAN.

THIS IS MARY KAY CANADA.

GREAT.

OKAY, GREAT.

AND I, OKAY.

I JUST WANTED, UM, TO, UH, VOICE MY CONCERN ABOUT THE, UM, PLANNING THAT'S BEEN DONE REGARDING THE INGRESS AND EGRESS OF THE TRAFFIC FROM THIS DEVELOPMENT.

UM, I LIVE IN ANGUS VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD AND I WALK MY CHILDREN UP, UM, CAL PASS EVERY DAY TO DAVIS ELEMENTARY, WHICH IS ABOUT A BLOCK AWAY FROM THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

AND I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE SUPPOSEDLY 10,000 EXTRA CARS THAT ARE GOING TO DUMP ONTO CAL PATH EVERY DAY.

IF THIS DEVELOPMENT GOES FORWARD AS PROPOSED.

SO I WAS HOPING THAT YOU ALL WOULD CONSIDER REQUIRING THEM TO HAVE THE INGRESS AND EAT RESEARCH BOULEVARD.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, KRISTEN MCCONNELL AND FOLLOWED BY CHRISTINE MCCONNELL OR TERRAN EVERS, ERICSSON AND KAREN EVERSON AND THEN RICHARD BEAN.

OKAY.

SO IT WAS KRISTEN MCCONNELL THERE AND DON'T WORRY, WE'LL CIRCLE BACK TO PEOPLE THAT, UM, I DIDN'T SPEAK UP.

I'M CIRCLING NAMES.

OKAY.

UM, AND WHO IS THIS? MY NAME IS KRISTEN MCCALL.

OKAY.

HI, YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

UH, I LIVE IN THE SUMMIT OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD FOR NINE YEARS.

I OPPOSE THE REZONING OF THE 3M PROPERTY NEXT

[00:50:01]

TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD BECAUSE IT WILL ALLOW DEVELOPMENT THAT DETRACTS FROM AND CONFLICTS WITH OUR RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES, THE REQUESTED REZONING THAT ALLOWS 50 FOOT TALL BUILDINGS.

AND I'M FRIDAY OF CURRENTLY RESTRICTED USES WILL ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO TRAFFIC HAZARDS ON THE NORTHBOUND FRONTAGE ROAD OF RESEARCH BOULEVARD.

I MEAN, DO ALL ROAD AND OPEN ALL DRIVE.

I BELIEVE THAT THE EXISTING 40 FOOT HIGH LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS OF USES ON THE PROPERTY ARE NEEDED TO PROVIDE HARMONIOUS TRANSITION BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LAND, SUCH AS RETAIL AND RESIDENTIAL AREAS OR BUILDINGS AT DIFFERENT HEIGHTS AND SCALES YOU AND REDEVELOPMENT ALONG US.

180 3 SHOULD COMPLIMENT EXISTING DEVELOPMENT, SUCH AS ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOOD, LARGE OFFICE BUILDINGS AND RETAIL DEVELOPMENTS DISTURBED NEARBY RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES WITH GLARE, FROM LIGHTING NOISE, FROM VEHICLES AND DUMPSTERS AND LITTER, NOXIOUS FUMES FROM IDLING VEHICLES ENTERING AND EXITING THE PARKING AREA.

IT CAN BE A HEALTH HAZARD.

THIS IS THE SUMMER SUMMIT OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD WAS BUILT IN THE 1960S.

OFTEN AREA OF PLANNING STUDIES AND COMPREHENSIVE PLANS HAVE MADE IT A PRIORITY, MAINTAIN THE QUALITY OF NEIGHBORHOODS AND PROTECT THE RESIDENTIAL CHARACTER.

I BELIEVE THAT THE CURRENT ZONING MUST BE MAINTAINED FOR OUR PROTECTION, A REQUEST THAT YOU NOT DENIED.

IS THAT ANY CHANGE? THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN TARYN EVERETT, SIN FOLLOWED BY KAREN EVERSON AND RICHARD BEAN.

AND I BELIEVE YOU HAVE TO HIT STAR SIX TO UNMUTE.

IS THAT CORRECT? ANDREW? I DON'T BELIEVE I HAVE THEM ON THE LINE.

I'LL TRY TO REACH OUT.

OH, OKAY.

I'LL CIRCLE.

OKAY.

RICHARD BEAN, ARE YOU THERE FOLLOWED BY ROBBIE ROBINSON AND THEN BEAU PERRY.

SO RICHARD BEAN, ARE YOU THERE AND IF NOT, UM, UH, ROBBIE ROBINSON.

OH, HI.

I'M SORRY I SPOKE OVER YOU.

IF YOU COULD INTRODUCE YOURSELF AGAIN.

UH, SURE.

MY NAME IS RICHARD BEAN AND I LIVE ON CONRAD ROAD AND THE SUMMIT OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD, UH, WHICH IS IMMEDIATELY WEST OF THE PROPERTY.

UH, I'D LIKE TO STATE MY CONCERNS ABOUT THE TRAFFIC AND THE IMPACTS OF REZONING.

THIS 3M PROPERTY.

THE NORTHBOUND SERVICE ROAD OF RESEARCH BOULEVARD ALREADY HAS VERY HEAVY TRAFFIC AT THE INTERSECTION OF RESEARCH AND DUVALL ROAD.

THE AFTERNOON TRAFFIC CAUSES LONG DELAYS DUE TO THE HEAVY VOLUME THAT GOES THROUGH THERE.

ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC FROM THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE 3M PROPERTY WILL MAKES US EVEN MORE OF A PROBLEM.

UH, NORTH OF BED INTERSECTION, THE SERVICE ROAD NARROWS DOWN FROM THREE LANES TO TWO LANES RESTRICTING THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC, UH, AT THE LOCATION OF THE DRIVEWAY FOR THE PROPOSED, UH, REZONING TRAFFIC THAT ENTERS THE 3M DRIVEWAY WILL SLOW TO MAKE A RIGHT-HAND TURN AND OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF THROUGH TRAFFIC ON THE SERVICE ROAD, PARTICULARLY IN THE MORNINGS.

AND THE AFTERNOON TRAFFIC IS SLOW MOVING AND BUMPER TO BUMPER ON THE SERVICE ROAD, WHICH WILL GET WORSE WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE 3M PROPERTY.

TWEET COURT IS NORTH OF THE 3M DRIVEWAY AND IS THE ONLY ACCESS INTO AND OUT OF THE SUMMIT OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD, MAKING A RIGHT-HAND TURN OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD ONTO THE SERVICE ROAD IS CURRENTLY VERY CHALLENGING, ESPECIALLY IN THE PERIOD OF TIME IF THE AFTERNOON CONGESTION.

AND IT'S ALSO CHALLENGING WHEN THE TRAFFIC IS FREE-FLOWING BECAUSE THE SPEED LIMIT IS 50 MILES PER HOUR AND OFTEN DRIVERS EXCEED THAT SPEED LIMIT.

SO IT MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO PULL OUT OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS SAFELY.

UH, CURRENTLY WHEN WE DO, UH, PULL OUT OF SOME OF THE OAKS NEIGHBORHOOD, WE HAVE TO TIME OUR RIGHT TURN WITH THE GAPS BETWEEN VEHICLES IN THE RIGHT LANE OF THE SERVICE ROAD.

AND WE CURRENTLY RELY ON THE SIGNAL, THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL AT DUVALL ROAD TO INTERRUPT THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC AND PROVIDE A REASONABLE CHANCE TO TURN OUT IF THE NEIGHBORHOOD VEHICLES LEAVING THE 3M PROPERTY, WE'LL FILL THOSE GAPS AND MAKE IT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT AND DANGEROUS FOR THOSE TURNING OUT.

IF THE NEIGHBORHOOD IMMEDIATELY NORTH OF THE TWEET COORD INTERSECTION CARS USING THE 180 3 EXIT RAMP FOR OAK KNOLL DRIVE CROSS RIGHTWARD, ONE OR MORE LANES AT THE SERVICE ROAD TO REACH THE DRIVEWAYS FOR THE OFFICE BUILDINGS AND TO MAKE A RIGHT-HAND TURNS INTO RABBIT TRACE PARKWAY AND OAK KNOLL DRIVE.

AND THAT SAME SECTION OF THE SERVICE ROAD VEHICLES WE'VE LEFT LEFTWARD ACROSS ONE OR MORE LANES TO MERGE ONTO THE 180 3 NORTHBOUND ENTRANCE RAMP DRIVERS PULLING OUT.

IF RIATA TRACE OFTEN ATTEMPT TO VEER OR CROSS STRAIGHT ACROSS ALL THREE LANES OF THE SERVICE ROAD TO REACH THAT ENTRANCE RAMP, ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC FROM THE 3M PROPERTY WILL ADD TO AN ALREADY CHAOTIC AND DANGEROUS, UH, STRETCH OF ROAD.

[00:55:01]

UH, MY NEIGHBORHOOD'S BEEN UNABLE TO DETERMINE WHAT TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS HAS BEEN PERFORMED RECENTLY AND, UH, TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF CAPACITY AND SAFETY OF THE RESEARCH BOULEVARD SERVICE ROAD BETWEEN DUVALL AND OAK KNOLL.

THE ADDITIONAL VEHICLES EXPECTED FROM 3M DEVELOPMENT WILL AGGRAVATE AN ALREADY BAD SITUATION.

I DON'T THINK THE REZONING REQUEST SHOULD BE APPROVED WITHOUT A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS OF THE TRAFFIC IMPACTS AND TRAFFIC FORECAST ALONG THE SERVICE ROAD BETWEEN DUVALL AND OAK, NO, INCLUDING THREE INTERSECTIONS OF TWEED COURT RIATA TRACE AND OAK KNOLL.

UH, LASTLY, UH, I THINK THERE ARE MITIGATION OPTIONS THAT SHOULD BE EVALUATED, INCLUDING A ONE, A DECELERATION LANES SOUTH OF THE 3M DRIVEWAY, TWO ADDITIONAL RIGHT-OF-WAY BETWEEN THE 3M PROPERTY.

AND RIATA TRACE THROUGH THE RIATA CORPORATE PARK, THREE WARNING LIGHTS AND REDUCED SPEED LIMITS ALONG THE NORTHBOUND SERVICE ROAD.

AND LASTLY REDUCED DEVELOPMENT DENSITY ON THE 3M PROPERTY.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO MY CONCERNS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN NEXT IS KAREN KAREN, KAREN EVERTON, OR, OH, I'M SORRY.

WE SKIPPED THOSE NEXT IS ROBBIE ROBINSON FOLLOWED BY BEAU PERRY FOLLOWED BY GAYE THOMPSON.

SO ROBBIE ROBINSON, ARE YOU THERE? AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

I AM HERE.

THANK YOU.

MY NAME IS ROBBIE ROBINSON.

I'M MY FIVE-YEAR RESIDENT OF THE ANGUS VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE LIVE OFF OF WEST CAL ABOUT MAYBE HALF A MILE FROM THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT SITE AT 3M.

AND FIRST I'D LIKE TO ECHO THE CONCERNS OF OUR NEIGHBORS IN SOME THAT OAKS, UM, THE, UH, THE NEED FOR THE, THE TIA TO BE COMPLETED AND SHARED SEEMS PRETTY OBVIOUS.

I, I WOULD THINK BEFORE ANY, UM, DECISIONS SHOULD BE MADE ON, ON, ON THE REZONING.

I'M NOT TO BE PRESUMPTUOUS, BUT THAT'S, THAT'S CERTAINLY MY FEELING AFTER LISTENING TO OUR NEIGHBORS THERE.

AND THEN, UH, I JUST WANT TO ECHO WHAT STEVEN AND ASHLEY ON THE PARENTS HERE IN ANGUS VALLEY HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE TRAFFIC AND SAFETY CONCERNS THAT WE HAVE A DAUGHTER IN SECOND GRADE, AND IT'S ALREADY NERVE WRACKING TO RIDE OUR, OUR BIKES DOWN CAL PATH, UM, OR BACK FROM SCHOOL AT DAVIS, WHICH IS JUST ACROSS THE STREET ADJACENT FROM THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

AND, UM, IT'S ONLY GOING TO OBVIOUSLY BECOME MORE CONGESTED AND, AND, AND MORE FRAUGHT.

ONE, ONE POINT.

AND I, I JUST SUPPORT EVERYONE WHO HAS SPOKEN OUT AGAINST THE REZONING.

I DO WANT TO SAY MY, MY WIFE AND I HAVE DISCUSSED RECENTLY THAT IT HASN'T BEEN BROUGHT UP HERE.

I DON'T THINK THAT SINCE WE MOVED INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD FIVE YEARS AGO, THE 3M PROPERTY HAS NOT BEEN OPERATIONAL OR IF SO, IT WAS AN EXTREMELY REDUCED.

AND NOW IT'S DORMANT.

SO W WE'RE TH TH THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT SITE, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, IT'S PRODUCING ZERO TRAFFIC RIGHT NOW, AND WE STILL HAVE TRAFFIC ISSUES, IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN OUTLINED BY, BY EVERYONE HERE.

AND SO ANYTHING ELSE IS GOING TO BE A NET GAIN AND TO TRAFFIC, A POTENTIALLY MASSIVE GAIN, UM, ON RESEARCH OBVIOUSLY, BUT ALSO PERHAPS ON, ON CAL PATH, WHICH HAS RESIDENCES ON IT.

SO DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET, THERE, THERE ARE HOMES WITH CHILDREN.

SO WE'RE, WE'RE EXTREMELY CONCERNED ABOUT, ABOUT THE TRAFFIC FIRST AND FOREMOST, UM, IN ADDITION TO SUPPORTING THE CONCERNS OF OUR, OUR OTHER NEIGHBORS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN NEXT IS BEAU PERRY FOLLOWED BY GAY THOMPSON, DAN WHITLAM, AND STACY PETERSON.

SO BEAU PERRY, ARE YOU THERE? AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES THEN.

ARE YOU THERE MR. PERRY? AND IF THE MR. PERRY, IF YOU'RE NOT BITTER, OH, LAYS ON ANDREW, JUST A REMINDER, UH, PARTICIPANTS, UH, SELECT STAR SIX.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS DARK.

SEX IS NOT WORKING.

UM, FEEL FREE TO CALL BACK INTO THE NUMBER THAT WAS PROVIDED.

[01:00:02]

UM, SO IF BEAU PERRY, IF YOU'RE NOT THERE, I'LL GO ONTO GAY THOMPSON AND GAY THOMPSON.

ARE YOU THERE? YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES GAY THOMPSON.

AND IF NOT, WE WILL GO WITH, UH, DAN WHITLAM.

ARE YOU THERE? DAN? WHAT LIFT? AND I HEAR A VOICE.

YES.

MA'AM YES MA'AM PLEASE, PLEASE IDENTIFY YOURSELF.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER SAYING DAN WEIGHTLIFT MEMBER OF THE ANGUS VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION OR IVANA BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

I SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE IVANA BOARD ANGUS VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

I'M SORRY.

NEIGHBORHOOD SPANS FROM THE EASTERN BOUNDARY OF THE 3M PROPERTY TO THE RAILROAD CROSSING, UH, TO THE EAST.

UH, THERE IS NO ACCESS TO THE VEGAS VALLEY SUBDIVISION, UH, FROM THE CITY OR STATE ARTERIAL ROADWAYS FROM THE NORTH EAST OR WEST, ALL RESIDENTS OF ANGUS VALLEY ARE THERE 750 HOMES HERE MUST LEAVE OR ENTER THE SUBDIVISION VIA DEVOLVE DEVOLVE ROAD.

AND THERE ARE FOUR ACCESS POINTS.

WEST CAL PATH CARRIES ABOUT 40% OF THE TOTAL TRAFFIC VOLUME.

UM, BRIEFLY STATED ABOUT OPPOSES THE REZONING OF PROPERTY OF 11 7 0 5 RESEARCH BOULEVARD ROAD, NORTHBOUND AUSTIN, UH, 7 8, 7 2 7 FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS, THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY, WHICH THE APPLICANT SEEKS TO LIVE FOR FURS IN RESTRICTION.

NUMBER FOUR TO THE TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS THAT Y'ALL HAVE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT TONIGHT.

IT WAS PREPARED BY WATSON HALL AND MCNAMARA TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS IN FEBRUARY OF 1989.

UH, THAT 1989 IMPACTS ANALYSIS AS YOU'VE HEARD IS MISSING.

AND NO ONE'S BEEN ABLE TO RELOAD TO LOCATE IT.

AND BECAUSE THAT, THAT 1989 TA MIGHT HAVE SIT AND HAD MIGHT'VE HAD STIPULATIONS, PRECLUDING, OR CALLING FOR ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC CONDITIONS THAT MIGHT AFFECT THE PROPERTY.

IN QUESTION, WE BELIEVE THAT A NEW TIA NEEDS TO BE CONDUCTED AT A MINIMUM TO ESTABLISH WHAT THE BASE CONDITIONS ARE TODAY AT THE TIME OF FILING, UM, AT THE TIME OF APPLICATION, UH, OR DISREGARDING WAS FILED.

THE REQUIREMENT FOR A TBI WAS WAIVED BY CITY STAFF WITH A NOTATION THAT THE CIA WOULD BE SUBMITTED WITH THE MASTER SITE PLAN FOR THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THE LARGER 3M CAMPUS.

HOWEVER, THE FUTURE SITE PLAN DOESN'T HAVE A GUARANTEED SUBMISSION DATE.

IN OTHER WORDS, IT COULD BE SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE SUCH A SITE PLAN IS SUBMITTED AND CONDITIONS TODAY COULD HAVE CHANGED DRASTICALLY.

THAT'S MORE IN THE THRESHOLD OF LEVEL OF SERVICE THAT DEVELOPER MAY HAVE TO PROVIDE AN ADDITIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE TO ALLOW THE DEVELOPMENT THEY ARE PROPOSING.

UH, ANY PIA MUST EXAMINE BOTH THE EXISTING AND THE PROPOSED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS TO SHOW HOW TRAVEL IS IMPACTED AND THE COST.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE TA THE 1989 TIA.

THEY MAY BE RECEIVING UNFAIR CREDIT, UH, BASED ON UNDOCUMENTED EXISTING CONDITIONS TODAY.

UM, THEY PROBABLY DON'T KNOW WHEN THE MASTER SITE PLAN WILL BE SUBMITTED WITH A TIA FOR THE MASTERSON 3M SITE.

UH, WE INSISTED THAT THEY ESTABLISH AT LEAST WHAT THE EXISTING CONDITIONS ARE TODAY.

NOW WE, THIS IS KIND OF CONFUSING BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE CITY STAFF HAS REVIEWED THE MOST RECENT PIA AND DETERMINED THAT IT IS ACQUIRED AND NEEDS TO BE RESUBMITTED.

WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT THE AUSTIN'S ZONING AND PLANNING COMMISSION DENY THIS REZONING REQUEST.

UM, I HAVE STARTED TIMING PEOPLE, SO THAT WAS THREE MINUTES.

SO, UM, YOU CAN FINISH UP YOUR LAST SENTENCE AND THEN WE'LL GO ON TO OUR NEXT PERSON.

YES, MA'AM.

WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT THE AUSTIN'S OUGHT TO GET PLANNING COMMISSION DENIED THIS REZONING REQUEST.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN NEXT IS STACY PETERSON, AND THEN I'M GONNA CIRCLE BACK TO PEOPLE.

STACY PETERSON, ARE YOU THERE STAR SIX FOR MUTE UNMUTING? HELLO, MY NAME IS STACY PETERSON.

OKAY.

YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

MY NAME IS STACY PETERSON AND I'M THE PRESIDENT OF THE ANGUS VALLEY AREA AND NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

THANK YOU FOR HEARING US TONIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR GOING AHEAD WITH THIS BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER.

[01:05:02]

WE ALL KNOW THAT THE REZONING OF THIS 5.6 SMALL PARCEL OF LAND IS JUST A PRELIMINARY STEP TO THE EVENTUAL REDEVELOPMENT OF THE ENTIRE 57 ACRE SITE.

I'VE LIVED HERE FOR YEARS.

I KNOW PEOPLE THAT HAVE LIVED HERE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FOR OVER 40 YEARS, IT'S GOING TO BE A HUGE CHANGE FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD TO HAVE THAT LOVELY BIG AREA WITH THE DEER AND THE TREES TO SUDDENLY CHANGE.

SO WE'RE ALL A LITTLE TREPIDATIOUS.

WE HAVE TREPIDATION ABOUT IT.

UM, WHAT WE DO RESPECT THE FACT THAT WHAT'S BEING PROPOSED.

THERE IS SOME VERY HIGH HIGH-END LOOKING OFFICE SPACES, AND WE KNOW THAT THERE'S A NEED FOR THAT IN NORTHWEST AUSTIN.

HOWEVER, WE HAVE MANY CONCERNS AND THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TIME HERE FOR ME TO SAY ALL OF WHAT THEY ARE, BUT I'LL GIVE YOU SOME GENERAL CATEGORIES.

OF COURSE, WE'RE WORRIED ABOUT COMMERCIAL TO RESIDENTIAL BUFFERING.

UH, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS SPACE BEHIND OUR HOUSES IN THE PLATTE NOTES OF TWO, 2012, THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A 50 FOOT RESIDENTIAL BUFFER, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE DEVELOPER IS TALKING ABOUT PUTTING ROADS THERE ALL AROUND IT.

WITH LITTLE CARS RUNNING AROUND LIGHTS, WE'RE WORRIED ABOUT FLOODING.

UM, SUDDENLY THE CHANGE HAS, THERE'S BEEN A GREAT CHANGE TO THE FLOODING, UM, PLAN THAT THE CITY HAS BEEN TELLING US ALL ALONG SUDDENLY, THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE TRENCHES AND THAT'S VERY CONCERNING.

WE HAVE VERY SERIOUS WORRIES OVER ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION.

THAT'S UNDER THE 3M PROPERTY AND HOW WILL THAT BE HANDLED AND HOW WILL THAT BE MONITORED? AND FINALLY, OF COURSE, WE'RE WORRIED ABOUT TRAFFIC.

UM, I DON'T THINK I NEED TO SAY A LOT ABOUT THAT.

IT'S VERY OBVIOUS THAT BOTH IVANA AND SUMMIT OAKS IS WORRIED ABOUT THE TRAFFIC IMPACTS.

WE JUST DON'T KNOW HOW IT'S GOING TO HANDLE IT.

SO FINALLY, LET ME JUST SORT OF QUICKLY SUM UP BY SAYING, WE REQUEST THAT YOU DENY THIS REQUESTED ZONING CHANGE UNTIL A LATER TIME.

IT WOULD, IN WHICH A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF THE TRAFFIC ESPECIALLY IMPACTS FROM THE ENTIRE 50 PLUS ACRE DEVELOPMENT CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT PRIOR TO ELIMINATING THE EXISTING CONDITIONAL OVERLAY.

UM, FINALLY IN THE VERY LAST THING I WOULD SAY IS EVEN THOUGH WE'VE PREPARED AND PREPARED FOR MONTHS, IT SEEMS OTHER THAN ONE SHORT MEETING IN MARCH IN WHICH WE ESSENTIALLY LISTENED TO WHAT THEY HAD PLANNED.

WE'VE NOT HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIT DOWN WITH ANY DEVELOPER.

UM, AND, AND I JUST I'VE BEEN TIMING PEOPLE.

AND SO YOU'RE, YOU'VE GOT, YOU CAN DO ONE LAST SENTENCE AND, UM, CAUSE THAT WAS THREE.

YES, MA'AM NO DEVELOPER HAS ACTUALLY BEEN IDENTIFIED TO US AND WE WOULD WELCOME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT DOWN WITH A DEVELOPER AND DISCUSS OUR CONCERNS.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR HEARING ME, KATE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THEN I'M GOING TO CIRCLE BACK AND I KNOW THAT THE EVERETT'S ENDS ARE ON THE LINE.

SO, UM, TERRAN, UH, EDMONDSON, AND THEN KAREN EVERETT SIN, AND YOU WILL EACH HAVE THREE MINUTES, HELLO OR NOT.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THIS? THIS IS TARA EVERTON.

UH, I LIVE IN ANGUS VALLEY.

UM, I'M GOING TO, I DON'T WANT TO GET BEAT.

UM, SO I'M GOING TO TRY AND MAKE THIS QUICK, UH, SURE.

APPRECIATE Y'ALL BEING HERE TONIGHT.

UM, AND DUVALL IS, SHOULD BE AN ARTERIAL ROADWAY.

IT IS NOT, IT'S A ONE LANE IN EACH DIRECTION.

THEY JUST RECENTLY STOLE SOME FROM DUVALL TO PUT IN BIKE WAYS AND, UM, AND IT'S NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE THE TRAFFIC.

THAT IS THE ULTIMATE CONCEPT PLAN FOR THIS AREA.

UM, IT'S THE, IT'S AN ODDLY SHAPED PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT SITS ON THE CORNER AND, UH, TO IT BE HARD TO ACCESS, UH, DUVALL AT THE INTERSECTION WITH TEX DOT'S 180 3, UH, BECAUSE IT'S SO CLOSE, WHICH MEANS YOU'RE PUTTING THEM OUT ON PATH, WHICH IT ALREADY HAS A DRIVEWAY AND ACCESS, BUT COUNT PATH IS A LITTLE TWO LANE RINKY-DINK, UH, UH, NO CURB AND GUTTER ROADWAY.

UM, AND THE, THE, THE OVERLAY THAT THAT IS ON THIS IS, UH, PROTECTIVE OF, OF TRAFFIC.

AND I GUESS THAT'S MY, MY BIG POINT IS I THINK, UH, MY REQUEST TO Y'ALL

[01:10:02]

IS THAT WE LOOK AT IT COMPREHENSIVELY.

I THINK THIS IS NOT A, JUST A REGULAR PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT'S TO BE DEVELOPED.

THIS IS IN A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD AND SIMILAR TO THE, UH, TO THE TRIANGLE PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT THE CITY OF AUSTIN GOT FROM THE STATE AND DEVELOPED AND, AND HAD A DEVELOPER WORK.

AND THAT TURNED OUT BEAUTIFULLY, BUT IT HAD A LOT OF STAKEHOLDER INPUT.

AND MY REQUEST IS THAT WE LOOK AT THIS COMPREHENSIVELY AND NOT KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD BY JUST CUTTING UP A SMALL PIECE AND REZONING THAT, AND THEN JUST TRICKLE
