UM,

[Joint Downtown Commission and Music Commission Meeting]

[00:00:02]

COMMISSIONER CANNOT BE EVER JOIN US.

FORTUNATELY HE HAS.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I DON'T THINK, I DON'T THINK WE CAN CALL IT TO ORDER IF WE DON'T HAVE QUORUM.

I THINK WE CALL IT TWO TO CANCEL.

CORRECT.

OKAY.

WELL THEN RATHER THAN, UH, CALLING TO CANCEL, WE'RE NOT HAVING AN OFFICIAL MEET.

MAYBE JUST SAY YOUR NEXT MEETING, EXPLORE WHETHER YOU HAVE ANY COMMISSIONERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO JOIN A WORKING GROUP.

IF THERE'S THAT INTEREST, WE CAN EXPLORE IT OURS AS WELL.

WELL, AND I THINK TO PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK, UM, IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE DOWNTOWN AUSTIN PLAN BECAUSE THAT'S MORE OR LESS OUR GUIDING DOCUMENT AND IT'S COMING UP ON ITS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A CONVERSATION TO BE HAD AROUND, UM, UPDATING IT, UH, BECAUSE WE UPDATE SO MANY OF OUR MASTER PLANS.

UM, BUT, UM, TO HAVE THE VISION STATEMENTS WITHIN IT HAS SPECIFICALLY HAVE TO DO WITH THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT THAT THEY CREATE IN DOWNTOWN AUSTIN.

AND SO I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THAT REMAIN A FOCUS GOING FORWARD.

UM, UM, I'M REALLY, I'M REALLY NOT HAPPY THAT, THAT WE DIDN'T MAKE QUORUM AND THAT EVERYBODY'S HAD TO SIT ON THE CALL FOR 30 MINUTES WHILE WE WAITED.

UM, WELL, LET'S GET TO WORK IN GROUP CONVERSATION STARTED AND TO MY MIND, AND LET'S PUT SOME TEETH BEHIND THOSE VISIONS AND NOT HAVE IT JUST BE A VIDEO.

WELL, AGAIN, I THINK THE, THE OPPORTUNITY THAT THE WORKING GROUP SHOULD IT BE FORMED SHOULD HAVE IS WHAT SORT OF CHANGES DO WE NEED TO DISCUSS JOINTLY TO THE DOWNTOWN AUSTIN PLAN, UM, AND, UH, TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS TO COUNCIL.

SO I WOULD ENCOURAGE, UH, OUR FRIENDS ON THE MUSIC COMMISSION TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT, UH, BECAUSE THAT IS OUR FRAMEWORK.

UH, AND, AND WE CAN, WE CAN MOVE ON FROM THERE.

UM, CAN I ASK A QUESTION? YES.

HI, Y'ALL UM, I'M LAUREN, I'M ON MONTHLY TO COMMISSION.

UM, AND ACTUALLY IF, IF YOU DON'T MIND, I I'M A, FULL-TIME WORKING PROFESSIONAL, PERFORMING MUSICIAN.

SO I CAN ALSO SPEAK TO THE QUESTION EARLIER THAT, UH, UH, IT'S A REALLY, REALLY COMPLICATED, YES.

GETTING BACK TO WORK BECAUSE IT'S NOT LIKE COOL WORK STARTS ON MONDAY.

WE'RE BACK IN THE OFFICE, YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE VERY PIECEMEAL.

UM, SO SOME THINGS ARE COMING BACK AND THEN YOU HAVE SETBACKS, LIKE THE ELEPHANT ROOM OPENED AND THEN A SERVER GOT COVID AND THEY HAD TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN.

SO SHORT ANSWER WOULD BE, IT'S A START.

SO I AM COMPLETELY SORRY TO INTERRUPT YOU, BUT OUR, UM, TECHNICIANS ARE REMINDING US THAT WE NEED TO CALL THE MEETINGS SO THEY CAN POST IT.

AND IT'S BEEN CALLED, OH, OKAY.

I'M SO SORRY.

CAN I ASK A QUICK QUESTION THEN, OR EXCUSE ME, THIS IS, AND WE'LL HAVE TO CALL THE MEETING AT THIS POINT, SINCE THERE'S NOT QUORUM.

OKAY.

THE CALL IS IN CANCEL.

AT LEAST WE GOT TO SAY HI.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

NICE TO SEE YOU.

I GUESS I'LL GO CHANGE MY SHIRT.

YEAH.
