UM, DINKLER THANK YOU.

AND THAT'S UNANIMOUS.

YEAH.

OKAY.

EVERYONE, WE ARE GOING TO MOVE ON TO

[B1. Rezoning: C14-2021-0089 - Drew Lane Residential; District 5]

YOU.

ONE IT'S ROADS THAT YOU, OR IS IT SHERRY? THIS IS WHEN HE WROTE, THIS IS WENDY ROSE WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

HELLO, I'M HERE TO PRESENT ITEM NUMBER ONE, UH, C 14 20 21 0 0 89 DREW LANE, RESIDENTIAL LOCATED AT 2 41 FOR DREW LANE.

THE SITE IS APPROXIMATELY 2.40 ACRES IN SIZE.

IT CONTAINS ONE SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE AND HIS OWN D R DEVELOPMENT RESERVE.

THERE ARE SINGLE FAMILY HOUSES AND MANUFACTURED HOMES TO THE NORTH.

A TWO, A TWO FAMILY RESIDENCE AND A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE IS TO THE EAST.

UH, THE COUNTY UNINCORPORATED TRAVIS COUNTY IS ACROSS THE STREET AND HAS SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCES AND DUPLEXES AND THEIR SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE IS ON LARGE, LOTS TO THE WEST THAT ARE ZONED SF TWO.

THE APPLICANT HAS REQUESTED THE SF THREE DISTRICT IN ORDER TO BUILD UP TO 18 SINGLE

[00:10:01]

FAMILY RESIDENCES ON THE PROPERTY.

THIS PROPERTY WAS ORIGINALLY PART OF A SUBDIVISION THAT CONTAINED A PLAT NOTE THAT REQUIRES 10,000 SQUARE FOOT LOT.

AND THIS, UH, RESTRICTION ALSO APPLIES TO THE LOT, BUT FRONT BOND WALL MACK ROAD, WHICH IS, UH, TO THE WEST AND ALSO TO, UH, A STREET CALLED GALE ROAD TO THE NORTH.

AND THE APPLICANT INTENDS TO HEAR TO THAT 10,000 LOT SIZE RESTRICTION AND REDEVELOPMENT OF THIS PROPERTY.

SO THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING SF THREE.

UH, I KNOW THERE ARE, THERE IS, UM, AT LEAST ONE RESIDENT ON THE TELEPHONE TONIGHT, UH, WHO WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION.

AND THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU, MS. RHODES.

UM, LET'S SEE.

I LOST MY LIST OF SPEAKERS, SORRY.

SO THE FIRST SPEAKER WILL BE, UM, VICTORIA HAAS.

THE PROPOSED DEVELOPER YOU SEE IN FRONT OF YOU AND THE PRESENTATION IS OUTLINED IN BLACK WITH HASH MARKS, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THE SITE IS WITHIN A QUARTER MILE, HALF MILE WALKING DISTANCE.

THE OTHER LANE IS ALSO AN IMAGINE AUSTIN ACTIVITY CORRIDOR, EXISTING CAPITAL METRO BUS SERVICE, 2.4 ACRES OF LAND.

IT WAS ORIGINALLY PLANTED IN 1954 AND INCLUDED A MINIMUM LOT SIZE REQUIREMENT OF 10,000 SQUARE FEET.

IT WAS LATER ANNEXED IN 1983 AND ASSIGNED VR ZONING.

NEXT SLIDE THAT RESERVED ZONING DISTRICT IS INTENDED TO BE TEMPORARY.

AND THUS DOES NOT COMMIT LAND TO PARTICULAR USE OR PATTERN OF DENSITY.

AND IN THE DECADE, SINCE THERE'S BEEN NO ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH PERMANENT ZONING FOR THIS TRACT OF LAND, WE ARE REQUESTING TO ESTABLISH A SEPARATE ZONING FOR THIS LAND, WITH THE INTENT TO HAVE THE LAND GO THROUGH THE SUBDIVISION PROCESS AND IN KEEPING WITH THE 10,000 SQUARE FOOT LOT SIZE REQUIREMENT PER THE ORIGINAL PLAT, BECAUSE THE REQUESTED FOR SFE ZONING IN COMBINATION WITH DEVELOPMENT OF SINGLE-FAMILY UNITS ON A PER LOT BASIS PER WATT BASIS, THE DEVELOPMENT WILL NOT REQUIRE A SITE PLAN.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS IS A TABLE COMPARISON OF THE ZONING DISTRICTS BETWEEN WHAT'S EXISTING TODAY AND THE S3 ZONING THAT'S BEING REQUESTED.

UH, CURRENTLY THE SITE DOES NOT MEET THE 10 ACRE LOT AREA REQUIREMENT FOR THE DRS ZONING DISTRICT AS A Q AND X OF THREE, HAVE THE SAME LAW AREA REQUIREMENTS.

AND THEREFORE IN EITHER SCENARIO, A MAXIMUM OF 10 LOTS CAN BE ACHIEVED, UH, PER THE 2.4 ACRES, REALISTICALLY, THAT THE SITE IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE, UH, AT MOST EIGHT WATTS.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AND THE ABILITY FOR AN ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT OR A TWO FAMILY YEARS WITH ASSETS TO SFU WILL NOT ALLOW FOR TWO FAMILY DUPLEX OR AN ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT, WHEREAS AT THE THREEWILL, AND IN TERMS OF UNITS, IT'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EIGHT VERSUS 16 AND THEN A HALF MILE WALK FROM A MAJOR INTERSECTION.

AND IT, AND AT AN IMAGINED AUSTIN CONFERENCE OF PLAN COUNT CENTER.

THIS LOCATION IS ACTUALLY IDEAL FOR ADDING MORE HOUSING UNITS AT THE SCALE THAT PROPOSED NEXT SLIDE, THERE ARE AT LEAST 10, UH, NINE PROPERTIES IN THE VICINITY THAT ENJOY THE BENEFIT OF TWO DWELLING UNITS PER LOT.

AND THOSE PROPERTIES ARE SEEN HERE OUTLINED IN BOLD, BOLD BLACK, THEREFORE S3 IS NOT ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH THE ZONING OF NEARBY PROPERTIES, BUT THE ABILITY FOR TWO DWELLING UNITS PER LOT IS CONSISTENT WITH SEVERAL PROPERTIES IN THE AREA.

NEXT SLIDE, FURTHER THE PROPERTIES IN BLUE HERE ALSO HAVE THE ABILITY FOR TWO DWELLING UNITS PER LOT TODAY, OR IN THE NEAR FUTURE WITH ESTABLISHMENT OF PERMANENT ZONING.

MOST OF THESE PROPERTIES THAT YOU SEE IN BLUE ARE, WELL, AT LEAST ON THE SOUTH SIDE, DREW LANE ARE IN THE COUNTY AS WELL AS WENDY HAD STATED NEXT SLIDE.

SO THE PROPERTY SUCH AS THE HALF MILE WALK SHED FROM THE MAJOR INTERSECTION OF SLAUGHTER AND MEN CHECKER ROAD AND THE PROPERTY, THIS PROPERTY OFFERS HOME OPTIONS TO FAMILIES THAT CANNOT AFFORD THE ONE TO $2 MILLION HOMES IN THE CENTRAL CITY AND WITH ACCESS TO EXISTING TRANSIT OPTIONS AND NEIGHBORHOODS SERVING COMMERCIAL USES THAT EXIST IN THE TOWN CENTER TODAY.

YOU CAN SEE THAT WITH ALL THE RED IN THIS MAP, THOSE ARE ALL COMMERCIAL USES TODAY.

NEXT LINE, WITH REGARDS TO TRANSPORTATION, ALL OF AUSTIN IS EXPERIENCING WORSENING TRAFFIC CONGESTION DUE TO INCREASES IN POPULATION,

[00:15:01]

POOR PLANNING AND OUTDATED INFRASTRUCTURE.

AND THE 2016 TRANSPORTATION BOND PACKAGE, THE MOBILITY STUDY AND PLAN FOR THE ROAD.

THE PLAN CALLS FOR IMPROVEMENTS THAT WILL SUPPORT TRAVEL OPTIONS FOR ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION AND MOST NOTABLY FOR PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS.

NEXT SLIDE, FURTHER TO 2016 TRANSPORTATION BONDS SECURED FUNDING FOR AND PRESENTS FOR SLAUGHTER LANE THAT WERE SET TO BREAK GROUND EARLIER THIS MONTH, ALL OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK TO ACCOMPLISH A MORE ROBUST SYSTEM THAT WILL HELP LOCAL AND REGIONAL MOBILITY.

AND THEREFORE WE'LL ALSO BE ABLE TO BETTER ACCOMMODATE THE GROWING POPULATION THAT WE'RE EXPERIENCING.

THE COMMISSIONERS.

WE REALLY, WHEN REDUCED TO THE SIMPLEST FORM, THE QUESTION BEFORE YOU IS FOR THE PROFITABILITY OF A 16 ADDITIONAL HOMES, AND THAT IS THE DENSITY OF 3.3, THREE UNITS PER ACRE.

THE REQUEST IS COMPATIBLE AND CONSISTENT WITH THE SURROUNDING PROPERTIES THAT HAVE SSQ AND SF REZONING TODAY.

AND WITH THAT, WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST YOUR SUPPORT AND I REMAIN AVAILABLE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, VICTORIA.

UM, IT LOOKS LIKE MR. THROWERS ALSO SIGNED UP TO SPEAK.

COMMISSIONER'S RON THROWER HERE.

I DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD.

UM, I'M JUST GOING TO REMAIN AVAILABLE IF THERE'S ANY QUESTIONS FROM THE COMMISSIONERS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OKAY, MR. JARED, ARE YOU ON THE LINE, MR. SCOTT JARRETT? UH, I LIVE AT 1 0 4 0 9 WOMACK, WHICH, UH, UH, OUR BACK YARD BACK FENCE IS THE PROPERTY, UH, UP FOR THE ZONING CHANGE.

AND, UH, WE MOVED THERE IN NOVEMBER OF 2020.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE REALLY LIKED ABOUT, UH, THE AREA WAS, AND ESPECIALLY THE BACKYARD AND BEYOND THE FENCE WHERE THE, WHERE THE WOODS AND THE SORT OF BUCOLIC FEEL OF THAT, UH, QUARTER OF AUSTIN.

UH, OUR CONCERN IS THAT, UH, THIS AREA HAS A LOT OF TREES THAT REALLY ARE THE HOME FOR A LOT OF WILDLIFE, A LOT OF DEER, BIRDS BOXES, RACCOONS, ALL ALONG THERE.

UM, AND, UH, WE'RE CONCERNED ALONG WITH, UH, MANY NEIGHBORS ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF A LOT OF TREES AND, UH, AND, UH, JUST IN GENERAL OVERCROWDING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND TRAFFIC ISSUES.

UH, WE ALSO HAVE SOME CONCERNS IN SPEAKING WITH OTHER NEIGHBORS ABOUT, UH, DRAINAGE FROM, UH, THE PROPOSED, UH, CHANGES.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, LET'S SEE.

SHOULD WE, THAT WAS THE LAST OF OUR SPEAKERS.

SO DO WE WANT TO, WHAT WAS THE PUBLIC HEARING GUESTS COMMISSIONER, UH, MR. UH, THEY GET A REBUTTAL.

OH, YES.

THAT'S RIGHT OUT OF PRACTICE.

IS HASI.

DO YOU WANT TO, UM, PROVIDE A REBUTTAL? THIS IS VICTORIA HERE.

THANK YOU.

UM, A CHAIR.

UM, IT'S REALLY, ALL I HAVE TO ADD IS, IS, UH, YOU KNOW, I, I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD, I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD, UM, HAS CONCERNS FOR TREES AND, UM, THE WILDLIFE THAT'S THERE.

AND, AND PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT, LIKE I SAID, THIS PROPERTY WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE SUBDIVISION PROCESS, UH, TO, TO BRING THIS BLOCK FROM ONE ACRE OR ONE LOT TO UP TO, UH, EIGHT, EIGHT LOT.

BUT I ALSO, AGAIN, WHEN I REMIND YOU THAT WE'RE ASKING FOR THREE DWELLING UNITS PER ACRE, WHICH IS PRETTY LOW DENSITY, UM, OF WHAT'S OUT HERE TODAY.

AND I THINK BECAUSE THE LOTS ARE GOING TO BE LARGER, IT DOES PROVIDE A LOT MORE FLEXIBILITY TO SAVE A LOT OF THOSE TREES.

UM, AND HOPEFULLY THE WILDLIFE WILL ALSO STAY IN THE AREA, BUT AT THE LEAST THE TREES WILL, UM, BE SOMETHING THAT I KNOW THE DEVELOPERS LOOKING TO KEEP AS MANY AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE THAT DOES HELP WITH, UM, THE LOOK AND AESTHETICS OF THE NEW HOMES THAT THEY, THAT THEY PLAN TO PUT THERE.

SO REALLY ALL I HAVE TO ADD AT THIS POINT, UM, I'M AVAILABLE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, YOU OKAY.

NOW, DO WE

[00:20:01]

HAVE A MOTION? YES.

COMMISSIONER SMITH.

AND WAS IT SECONDED BY, OH, BY COMMISSIONER KOSTA? NO, NO, SORRY.

SORRY.

WE COULDN'T HEAR HIM DID OH, OKAY.

MAKE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

THANK YOU.

AND IS THERE A SECOND NOW FROM COMMISSIONER KOSTA AND THEN ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF CLOSING THE PUBLIC HEARING.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S UNANIMOUS.

OKAY.

SO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CASE.

YES.

COMMISSIONER KOSTA.

THANK YOU.

UH, I GUESS FOR STAFF OR FOR THE, UH, APPLICANT, WHOEVER CAN ANSWER, JUST WANT TO CONFIRM TWO THINGS.

ONE, NONE OF THE TREE OF THAT, THE TALKING ABOUT ARE QUALIFY AS HERITAGE TREES AND TO, UH, FROM THE STAFF REPORT ON IMPERVIOUS COVER.

IT SAYS THAT, UM, THIS WOULD, THAT'S A THREE, THEY WOULD BE 45% MISS COVER, WHICH IS MORE RESTRICTIVE THAN, UM, IT SAYS, THIS IS THE MORE RESTRICTIVE ZONING.

AND I WAS JUST WONDERING IF THAT MEANS THAT IT'S, IT WOULD BE MORE STRICT THAN SF TWO.

THOSE ARE MY QUESTIONS, RON, WHY WE'RE HERE.

THERE ARE SEVEN HERITAGE TREES ON THE PROPERTY THAT WILL BE PRESERVED AND MAINTAINED, AND THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE ANY ATTEMPT TO REMOVE ANY OF THOSE THREE.

AND THERE ARE 14 PROTECTING TREES ON THE PROPERTY.

AND, UH, THOSE ARE, YEAH, THOSE ARE NEGOTIATED REMOVALS IF, IF IT COMES DOWN TO IT, BUT WITH SUCH LARGE LOTS, THERE'S GOING TO BE SO MUCH ROOM AND FLEXIBILITY TO HAVE GREATER THREE PRESERVATION.

IF THEY'VE BEEN TWO UNITS ON EVERY SPOT AND THE IMPERVIOUS COVER.

CAUSE I WONDERED THE SAME THING AND I READ THAT THIS IS WHY HE ROSE WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT AND, AND IT'S 45% FOR BOTH SF TWO AND SF THREE AND PERVIOUS COVER.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND I SEE THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER GREENBERG HAS HER HAND UP AND THEN IT LOOKED LIKE COMMISSIONER BRAY.

ONE IS FOR NEXT.

YES.

UM, MY QUESTION IS FOR STAFF, UM, IN TERMS OF THE PLATINUM FOR THE LOT SIZES TO BE AT LEAST 10,000 SQUARE FEET WHO ENFORCES THAT, IS THAT ENFORCED AT THE TIME OF SUBDIVISION? YES, YES, YES.

SO WE CAN COUNT ON THE CITY TO ENFORCE THAT.

YES, YES, YES.

THAT WAS AT THE TIME OF SUBDIVISION.

THE APPLICANT DOES NEED TO PROVIDE, UH, PREVIOUS DOCUMENTS THAT APPLY TO THE PROPERTY, INCLUDING THIS TENT THAT THIS PLAT THAT HAS A 10,000 SQUARE FOOT RESTRICTION.

THANK YOU.

HEY, COMMISSIONER BRAY.

I WAS JUST ANSWERING THE PREVIOUS COVER QUESTION CAUSE I HAVE THE ZONING GUIDE UP.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, MR. KING? YES.

THANK YOU.

UM, I AM, UH, LOOKING ON THIS CITY'S WEBSITE, UH, RIGHT NOW FOR 20 THE CITY'S PERMIT WEBSITE RIGHT NOW FOR, UH, 24 14 DREW LANE, THIS, THIS LOCATION.

AND I SEE THAT THERE'S A TREE, UH, I GUESS A TREE PERMIT, UH, ASSOCIATED WITH THIS, THIS ADDRESS.

AND WHEN I LOOK AT THAT THREE PERMIT, THAT'S, THAT'S SHOWN THERE IT'S A TREE SURVEY.

IT DOES SHOW.

SO I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY, UH, THE, THE FILE THAT'S CONNECTED TO THAT DID THAT RECORD ON THE CITY PUBLIC WEBSITE, AMANDA, IT SAYS IT, THE, THE TREE, UH, SURVEY SAYS THE ADDRESS IS 1214 DREW LANE.

SO I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED.

THE TREE SURVEY THAT I DOWNLOADED FROM THE SIDE SAYS THE ADDRESS IS 1214 DREW LANE.

BUT WHEN YOU, WHEN I SEARCHED FOR ON THE CITY WEBSITE, THE CITY'S, UH, AUSTIN BILL PLUS CONNECT WEBSITE FOR 24 14 DREW LANE PERMIT NUMBER 2021 DASH 0 6 7 3 6 1 TP COMES UP AND IT'S, AND THAT SAYS THAT IT IS FOR 24 14 DREW LANE.

BUT WHEN I ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE TREE

[00:25:01]

SURVEY, IT SHOWS SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

IT SHOWS SOME HERITAGE TREES THAT ARE DISEASED AND, AND, UM, THERE MAY BE SOME MITIGATION REQUIRED.

SO I'M JUST CONFUSED ABOUT THAT.

AND I KNOW, UH, THE APPLICANT HAS ADDRESSED THAT.

SO I WONDER IF SOMEBODY COULD CLARIFY, UH, CAUSE IT DOESN'T SEEM TO COMPORT WITH WHAT THE APPLICANT SAID IN TERMS OF 12, SEVEN HERITAGE TREES AND 14 PROTECTED TREES.

THIS IS, THIS IS WENDY ROSE WITH THE CITY I'M TRYING TO ACCESS THIS PARTICULAR FILE THROUGH THE AMANDA SYSTEM.

IT DOES LOOK LIKE THE APPLICANT HAD A CONSULTATION WITH CITY STAFF, UH, AND THERE WAS A CONSULTATION REPORT THAT WAS GENERATED, BUT I WOULD AS A SEPARATE PROCESS.

RIGHT.

AND I'M LOOKING AT THAT, IT SAYS DATE OF CONSULT IS 6 1 21 AND THE CITY ARBORIST STAFF WAS TAYLOR HORTON AND THE APPLICANT PRESENT WAS LLOYD MINNICK.

M I N I C K.

AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I'M NOT, I'M LOOKING AT THE CORRECT REPORT FOR THIS LOCATION, 24 14 DREW LANE.

I'M HOPING THE APPLICANT CAN HELP ADDRESS THIS.

ALSO MY SYSTEM JUST LOCKED UP.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND I'M FINE WITH THE APPLICANT IF THEY WANT A TIME.

AND I'M VERY HAPPY TO HEAR WHAT THE APPLICANT SAID.

THANK YOU.

NO, I REALLY AM HAPPY TO HEAR ABOUT THE PRESERVATION OF THE TREES AND THAT, BUT WITH THE LAYOUT OF THE LOTS THERE, YOU'LL BE ABLE TO PRESERVE THOSE.

SO, UM, I'M JUST HOPEFUL THAT WE CAN SEE THAT, THAT THAT REALLY HAPPENS.

SO RON, IF YOU WANT TO SAY ANYTHING THAT THAT'D BE HAPPY TO HEAR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY.

COMMISSIONER IS RON FOR WE'RE HERE.

WE'RE CHECKING WITH OUR CLIENT AT THE MOMENT.

UM, THEY'RE NOT, THEY'RE NOT COGNIZANT OF A TREE PERMIT OR A CONSULTATION FOR A TREE ON THEIR PROPERTY.

SO I'M WONDERING IF THIS IS A MISFIRING OF INFORMATION AND AMANDA OR WHAT, BUT, AND AGAIN, ACCORDING TO THE TREE SURVEY WE HAVE, THERE ARE SARAH SEVEN HERITAGE TREES ON THE PROPERTY.

AND AGAIN, I JUST WANT TO REITERATE THAT 10,000 SQUARE FOOT MINIMUM LOT SIZE GIVES YOU A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY TO PRESERVE THESE TREES AND PUT THE UNITS ON EVERY LEVEL.

THANK THANK YOU MR. TROY.

I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

AND STAFF, UH, YOU KNOW, IT LOOKED THAT MAY JUST HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW, ACCIDENTALLY FILED WITH THE WRONG ADDRESS THERE THAT'S.

OKAY.

I I'M, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAD THE CORRECT INFORMATION.

UM, AND, UM, YEAH, THIS IS WENDY RHODES AGAIN, AND I WAS ABLE TO ACCESS THIS TREE, A CONSOLE THAT DOES SAY 12, 14 DREW LANE, AS YOU, UH, STATED EARLIER, THE APPLICANT IS LISTED AS LLOYD MINNICK.

UM, AND THAT'S NOT THE PROPERTY OWNER HERE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THAT CLARIFICATION.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AND, UH, SO, UM, AND YOU KNOW, I'M NOT TH TH I JUST WONDERED ABOUT, UM, HOW, UH, YOU KNOW, I GUESS THIS WOULD COME OUT IN SUBDIVISION, THE ACCESS TO EACH OF THE LOTS, WHETHER FLAG LOTS WOULD BE REQUIRED.

UH, JUST A LITTLE BIT OF INQUISITIVE ABOUT THAT.

IT, STAFF CAN ANSWER THAT IF YOU'D LIKE, I, YES.

UH, THIS, THE LIGHT, THE SUBDIVISION LAYOUT, WELL, THE LAYOUT OF THE SITE WOULDN'T BE, UM, OR LOTS WOULD BE REVIEWED AT THE TIME OF SUBDIVISION.

UM, I I'VE NOT RECEIVED OR IS ONE REQUIRED A CONCEPTUAL SUBDIVISION PLAN FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROPERTY, BUT IT'S POSSIBLE THAT IT DOES INCLUDE FLAG LOT AND AS WELL AS NON-FLAG LOTS.

OKAY.

AND WOULD THAT SUBDIVISION COME BACK TO US TO REVIEW OR IS THAT AN ADMINISTRATIVE STUFF? EVERY, IT WAS, IT WOULD BE A TYPE OF RECENT DIVISION SINCE THIS IS ALREADY PLANTED.

SO YES, IT WOULD, IT WOULD COME BACK TO THE ZAP FOR REVIEW.

YES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THIS IS MY LAST QUESTION HERE IS, UH, THE, UH, JUST TRYING TO GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT EIGHT LOTS THAT, THAT WE EXPECT TO GET OUT OF THIS.

AND, AND THAT WOULD BE TWO, WOULD THAT BE TWO RESIDENTIAL UNITS ON EACH OF THOSE LOTS OF LIKE A MAIN HOME AND, UH, AND AN ADU, OR WOULD THAT BE LIKE A DUPLEX IN AN ADU THAT I'M JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE I'M UNDERSTANDING IS A DUPLEX COUNTING AS ONE, OR IS IT COUNTING AS TWO AND STAFFING? OKAY.

YEAH.

I'M JUST TRYING TO CLARIFY WHAT I'M UNDERSTANDING IS THERE'S GOING TO BE, UH, LIKE A TWO, TWO UNITS, TWO HOUSING UNITS ON EACH OF THOSE LOTS.

SO THAT WOULD BE LIKE A MAIN HOUSE IN AN ADU.

IS THAT WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT? THAT'S THAT OPTION?

[00:30:01]

IT COULD BE A DUPLEX THAT COULD, THAT'S A THREE ALLOWS FOR DUPLEXES THAT ALLOWS FOR SINGLE FAMILY AND ALLOWS FOR SINGLE FAMILY WASN'T WITH AN ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT, WHICH IS TOO.

OKAY.

SO LET ME JUST CLARIFY.

SO IF I HAVE A DUPLEX, COULD I ALSO HAVE AN ADU? NO, BECAUSE THAT THAT'S THREE UNITS AND THAT'S CONSIDERED MULTIFAMILY.

OKAY.

SO IT COULD NOT EXCEED TWO UNITS UNDER THE ZONING.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THE CLARIFICATION AND THE INFORMATION.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER SMITH.

LET ME COME MEET MYSELF FIRST.

UM, I'M NOT GONNA MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE STAFF RECOMMENDATION, REZONING PROJECT SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER DINKLER.

OH, NO, I'M SORRY.

I HAD A QUICK QUESTION OF THE APPLICANT.

SHE SAID EIGHT LOTS.

SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE I'M TOTALLY UNDERSTANDING THIS.

SO THE PLAN IS TO HAVE HOW MANY DWELLING UNITS, 16 COMMISSIONER.

THIS IS VICTORIA WITH RIVER DESIGN WITH THE POSSIBILITY FOR EIGHT LOTS AND EACH LOT CAN HAVE HUGE ROLLING UNIT.

THAT WOULD BE A TOTAL OF 16 DWELLING UNITS ACROSS EIGHT MONTHS.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO SINGLE FAMILY HOMES WITH A TO USE PO POTENTIALLY.

OKAY.

CORRECT.

IT COULD BE, LIKE I SAID, HE COULD BE IN A DUPLEX FORM.

IT COULD BE IN THE FORM OF TWO FAMILY, WHICH IS ALSO THE SAME AS ADU, WHERE YOU'VE GOT A HOUSE AND THEN YOU'VE GOT A SMALLER UNIT THAT'S, UH, LIMITED TO 11, 11, 1100 SQUARE FEET IN SIZE.

UM, IT COULD BE EITHER ONE OF THOSE AREAS, WHICH YOU'D, HAVEN'T QUITE WORKED OUT.

WHAT, WHAT EXACTLY YOU'RE GOING TO DO OTHER THAN APRIL WATTS WITH 16 DWELLING.

THAT'S CORRECT.

THANK YOU.

AND IF I MAY, I SEE YOUR HAND COMMISSIONER GREENBERG, BUT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A LOT THAT IS SURROUNDED BY SF THREE PEOPLE.

THIS IS VERY, THIS IS IT'S LIKE WITH LIFE IS BASIC.

UM, ANYWAY, COMMISSIONER GREENBERG, I WAS JUST GONNA COMMENT.

THE ARITHMETIC SAYS YOU CAN DO 10 LOTS, SO THERE MAY BE SOME TOPOGRAPHY OR OTHER REASONS WHY THEY'RE NOT DOING 10.

RIGHT.

SO I WAS GOING TO ASK THE APPLICANT THERE SOME REASON YOU'RE SAYING 8, 9, 10.

YES, THAT'S CORRECT.

AND INITIALLY, IF YOU, IF YOU JUST TAKE THE CALCULATION, ACCORDING TO THE LAND AREA THAT'S AVAILABLE AND THAT 10,000 LOTS, THAT 10,000 SQUARE FOOT LOT SIZE YOU'RE CORRECT.

YOU CAN GET UP TO 10 ONCE YOU FACTOR IN ONCE YOU FACTOR IN TOPOGRAPHY TREES AND, AND JUST THE LOGISTICS OF LAYING OUT A SITE.

AND REALISTICALLY, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET THAT FULL 10.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? YES.

COMMISSIONER DENISE, LAST ONE.

I PROMISE.

UM, AND THIS IS A QUESTION FOR, UM, THE APPLICANT OR MS. RHODES, WHOEVER CAN ANSWER IT BECAUSE THIS MAY MEAN A FLAG LOT SCENARIOS.

SO ARE THE BACK UNIT SAY IF AN ADU IS BELT, UM, AT WHAT POINT DO THE ASPIRE USUALLY REQUIRES SPRINKLING IN THE HOUSE FOR, UM, THE, THE BACK LOT? I'M NOT S I'M NOT SAYING THAT VERY WELL, BUT I THINK, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY.

IF YOU HAVE A, A SKINNY FLAGPOLE AND A, UH, DWELLING UNIT IN THE VERY BACK, I DIDN'T MEASURE THE LINK FROM NORTH TO SOUTH.

HOW LONG IS THAT? WOULD FIRE REQUIRE A SPRINKLING IN THE BACK HOUSE? I KNOW YOU ALL DEAL WITH LOTS OF SITE PLANS AND LOTS OF SUBDIVISIONS.

SO I'M HOPING ONE OF Y'ALL CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

UH, COMMISSIONER DINKLER RON THROW WE'RE HERE.

UH, THE ANSWER IS THAT THE CITY FIRE DRUGS NEED TO HAVE ACCESS TO WITHIN 150 FEET OF EVERY UNIT.

THEY CAN, UH, THEY CAN STRETCH THAT TO 200 FEET IF THE UNIT IS SPRINKLED AT THE VERY REAR, BUT IF THE REAR UNIT IS GOING TO BE LONGER THAN 200 FEET, THEN THERE'S GOING TO HAVE TO BE A FIRE LANE, BROUGHT INTO THE PROPERTY THAT COULD ALSO SERVE AS A JOINT USE DRIVEWAY FOR MULTIPLE UNITS.

UH, I MEAN, THERE'S, THERE'S SEVERAL WAYS TO DEAL WITH IT, BUT THAT IS CERTAINLY THE MOST COMMON WAY TO DEAL WITH IT.

OKAY.

I APPRECIATE THAT ABOUT THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER KOSTA.

[00:35:03]

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I'D LIKE TO SECOND, MR. SMITH'S MOTION.

THANK YOU.

AND ANY OTHER DISCUSSION? OKAY.

NO DISCUSSION CHAIR.

I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY THE MOTION.

IS THAT RECOMMENDATION? YES.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

OKAY.

THAT LOOKS UNANIMOUS.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

MOVING RIGHT ALONG TO ITEM ONE, WHICH IS DISCUSSION POSSIBLE ACTION REGARDING MATTERS RELATED TO THE LDC AND INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO STAFF UPDATES, PRESENTATIONS AND SCHEDULING.

AND I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANYTHING FOR THAT TODAY.

UM, BUT ITEM C TWO IS DISCUSSION AND CONSIDER RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BUDGET

[C2. Discuss and consider recommendations for Budget Fiscal Year 2021-2022. (Sponsors: Commissioners Denkler and King).]

FISCAL YEAR 2122.

AND I KNOW WE SAW SOME, I SAW SOME GREAT RECOMMENDATIONS PROVIDED.

I DON'T KNOW IF WE WANT TO, IF YOU WANT TO WALK US THROUGH THOSE, I THINK HAPPY TO WALK YOU THROUGH THIS.

I DON'T KNOW IF FOLKS HAD A CHANCE TO READ, UH, THE FIRST DOCUMENT, WHICH, UH, WE LATER SENT AMENDMENTS TO.

SO I CAN CERTAINLY, UM, READ THE ONE PAGE DOCUMENT IN FULL IF THAT'S YOUR PREFERENCE OR IF ENOUGH OF YOU SAW IT, I'M HAPPY JUST TO READ THE ADDITIONAL SUGGESTIONS I SENT ON, UM, LATE THIS AFTERNOON TO ANDREW, UH, THE MORE I LOOKED, THE MORE I FOUND NEEDS, UH, AND I WAS TRYING TO DRAFT THIS WITH THE WONDERFUL ENABLE ASSISTANCE OF MY COLLEAGUE, UM, COMMISSIONER KING, TO TRY TO REPRESENT ISSUES THAT EVERYONE IS RAISED IN THE LAST YEAR ABOUT THINGS THAT WE FEEL HAVE NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED.

SO WHAT IS YOUR HALSA PREFERENCE ON THIS? SO I JUST READ IT, I THINK SO, I MEAN, JUST TO HAVE IT OUT THERE AND, UM, UH, WE DRAFTED THE RESOLUTION, UH, TO ENCOURAGE THE COUNCIL MEMBERS TO CONSIDER THESE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS.

AND, UH, THEY WERE DIVIDED INTO, UH, WHICH OFFICE, UH, NEEDED, UH, WE FELT WHICH OFFICE NEEDED ASSISTANCE.

THE FIRST ONE WAS FOR THE EQUITY OFFICE.

ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT WAS ANY BULLY ARE RAISED LAST YEAR BY, UH, COMMISSIONER RAY, WAS THAT, UH, SHE FELT THAT THE EQUITY OFFICE NEEDED RESOURCES TO REVIEW THEIR CITY BUDGET, CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS AND PROVIDE TRAINING ON RACIAL EQUITY.

UM, THIS HAS NOT BEEN CONCLUDED, UH, THE TRAINING.

SO WE WERE INTERESTED IN SEEING IF THAT COULD BE LOOKED AT BY THE COUNCIL.

UH, WE ALSO WANTED TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION ON RISK RECONCILIATION AND HEALING FOR THE DISENFRANCHISEMENT OF BLACK AUSTINITES, WHICH, UH, THE COUNCIL APPROVED IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR.

UH, THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT, UM, AND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES GOT THE BULK OF OUR RECOMMENDATIONS.

ONE OF THEM WAS AN ISSUE THAT COMMISSIONER GREENBERG HAS RAISED THAT WE NEED TO PROVIDE SOFTWARE OR DIGITAL TOOLS TO FACILITATE APPLICATION REVIEWS FOR INCREASED FASTER REVIEW TIMES AND COST SAVINGS.

UH, IF YOU WENT INTO THE SUBDIVISION CASES, UH, TODAY YOU'LL SEE ON LEAP, UH, THAT THE CITY COULD ONLY TAKE FARTS, UH, SUBDIVISION APPLICANTS, AND THIS WOULD BE A WAY TO STREAMLINE THE PROCESS.

AND I HAVE A FEELING THAT THERE, A LOT OF OUR COLLEAGUES WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THIS.

UH, WE WANTED TO SEE, UH, IF THEY HOUSING DEPARTMENT COULD ENSURE ADEQUATE STAFFING AND RESOURCES TO TIMELY UPDATE AMANDA AND THE, UH, GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM WITH INFORMATION ON LOCALIZED AND, UH, FLOODING AND WILDFIRE INTERFACE.

THIS CAME UP IN OUR, UM, FLOODING, UH, WORK GROUP.

UH, I ADDED IN WILDFIRE INTERFACE.

THESE CURRENTLY AREN'T IN, UM, EITHER AMANDA OR THE GIS SYSTEM.

UH, AND I KNOW THE AUDIT COMMITTEE WILL BE LOOKING AT AMANDA THAT SHEAR.

SO WE MIGHT WANT TO WEIGH ON THAT.

UH, THERE WAS ALSO A DESIRE TO ENSURE ADEQUATE STAFFING AND RESOURCES IN ALL CITY INCOME, RESTRICTED HOUSING PROP PROGRAMS TO TIMELY MAP, MONITOR COMPLIANCE WITH INCOME RESTRICTED HOUSING REQUIREMENTS, INCLUDING THE NUMBER OF UNITS PROVIDED HOW QUICKLY THE UNITS ARE FILLED AND WHETHER HEALTH

[00:40:01]

AND SAFETY MAINTENANCE IS PROVIDED ON A REGULAR AND SUFFICIENT BASIS.

WE WANTED TO ENSURE ADEQUATE STAFFING AND RESOURCES TO MONITOR AND PROVIDE PUBLIC UPDATES ON COMPLIANCE WITH CITY INCOME, RESTRICTED HOUSING PROGRAMS, IF YOU RECALL.

BUT HOUSING DEPARTMENT WAS AUDITED IN 2015, AND THERE WAS SOME FEELING EVEN IN 2019 THAT, UM, WE WEREN'T, UH, UPDATING THE PUBLIC REGULARLY ON THESE PROGRAMS AND HOW WELL THEY WERE BEING MONITORED.

WE, UH, I ADDED THIS ONE, UM, AFTER READING A, UH, COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW FROM, UH, PLANNING, UM, THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT TO ENCOURAGE MORE FUNDING FOR THAT PAYER MEN ASSISTANT, WHICH WAS LISTED AS THE GREATEST BARRIER PURCHASING A HOME AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSING COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENTS, COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS OF IMPEDIMENTS TO HOUSING AS A MEANS TO LEVERAGE LIMITED DOLLARS.

UM, AND THIS ANALYSIS WAS BASED ON THE PARTICIPATION OF 6,000 LOW INCOME RESIDENTS.

UH, 43,000 OF THEM WERE PARTICIPANTS OF COLOR.

AND THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST DATA I'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME ABOUT WHAT THE BARRIERS WERE FOR WERE FOLKS, UM, IN GETTING, UM, PURCHASING HOUSING.

UH, THIS WAS A COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION FROM COMMISSIONER KING, PROVIDE ADEQUATE STAFF AND RESOURCES TO INITIATE AND FACILITATE CONCURRENT SMALL AREA PLANNING PROCESSES FOR EQUITABLE TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATED WITH PROJECT CONNECT, DISPLACEMENT PREVENTION AND MITIGATION, AND LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITIES OF COLOR IN EAST AUSTIN, HISTORIC SURVEYS OF NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITY ASSETS IMPACTED BY RAPID REDEVELOPMENT AND DISPLACEMENT AND THE EASTERN CRESCENT, UH, FIRE, UH, INCREASED FUNDING AND RESOURCES FOR WILDFIRE TRAINING, UH, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PLAN TO PURCHASE TRUCKS AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WHERE, UM, THE VEHICLES ARE APPROPRIATELY SIZED FOR STREET WEST, UM, TO DECREASE THE UPWARD TREND OF WILDFIRE RISK FOR BOTH BUILDINGS, ROADWAYS PROPERTIES, DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE, UH, INCREASED STAFFING FOR CONSTRUCTION AND ENVIRONMENTAL INSPECTIONS TO ENSURE ALL PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE IS BUILT ACCORDING TO REQUIREMENTS.

AND TO ADDRESS THE 261, UM, 6 1 7 DECREASE IN FUNDING FROM LAST YEAR'S BUDGET CODE ENFORCEMENT, UM, ENSURE ADEQUATE WORLD WE'RE DOWN TO TWO MORE OF THE FORMER ENSURE ADEQUATE STAFFING AND RESOURCES TO PROACTIVELY MONITOR AND ENFORCE COMPLIANCE WITH HEALTH AND SAFETY REGULATIONS BY COMMERCIAL RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS THAT PARTICIPATE IN CITY STATE AND FEDERAL INCOME, RESTRICTED HOUSING, RENTAL ASSISTANCE, OR HOME REPAIR ASSISTANCE, AND, UH, PROGRAMS IN AUSTIN ON WATERSHED.

UM, I THOUGHT WE NEEDED TO BE ADDING STAFF AND FUNDING FOR ATLAS FLOODPLAIN STUDIES THIS FISCAL YEAR, RATHER THAN FISCAL YEAR 22, UH, PARTICULARLY IN WATERSHEDS WHERE RESIDENTIAL HOUSING AS BEING ADDED CITY-WIDE, UM, WE WANT TO ENSURE ADEQUATE RESOURCES ARE BEING PROVIDED FOR THE OFFICE OF PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT TO ADEQUATELY ADDRESS THATA TO ENSURE POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS ARE ACTUALLY ACHIEVING THE DESIRED OUTCOME OF THE COUNCIL STRATEGIC PLAN.

AND FINALLY, ANOTHER SUGGESTION FROM COMMISSIONER KING PROVIDE FUNDING TO ALLOW THE PUBLIC, TO PARTICIPATE VIRTUALLY IN PUBLIC MEETINGS, HELD BY BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS WHEN IN-PERSON MEETINGS RESUME IN 2021.

I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, UM, TAKE ANY SUGGESTIONS.

UH, BUT OUR HOPE WAS THAT IN WITH THIS IS APPROVED, THAT ANDREW WOULD SEND IT TO THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL, BUT ALSO COPY THE CITY MANAGER FOR DISTRIBUTION TO THE VARIOUS DEPARTMENT HEADS AND THE INTERIM BUDGET OFFICER CARRIE LANG CHAIR DIDN'T CLEAR IS GREAT.

AND COMMISSIONER KING, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUTTING THESE TOGETHER.

I THINK IT'S COMPREHENSIVE AND IT INCLUDES A LOT OF THE THINGS THAT WE'VE DISCUSSED.

UH, THIS YEAR.

ONE THING THAT ANDREW WANTED ME TO POINT OUT IS THAT DSD IS ACTUALLY THE DEPARTMENT THAT DOES SUBDIVISION REVIEW.

SO I'M NOT SURE IF YOU HAD, UM, SOME OF THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT MAY HAVE FALLEN UNDER HOUSING AND PLANNING IS ACTUALLY A DSD, UH, JOB.

SO JUST CLARIFYING WHICH DEPARTMENT DOES WHAT SURE WE CAN, WE CAN ADDRESS THAT, UM,

[00:45:01]

AND HAVE A COPY COME BACK TO THE, UH, UH, COMMISSION, UH, AFTER IT, SAD TO FOLKS ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.

ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR FEEDBACK HEY, UM, A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT THINGS, UH, YOU KNOW, LIKE ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE IN HERE.

UM, I HAD TALKED WITH COMMISSIONER KING SEPARATELY ABOUT, UH, SOMETHING WE WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IN THE FUTURE, WHICH IS PUBLIC MEETINGS.

UM, I DON'T KNOW, UH, IF HE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT, WE HAD DONE SOME RESEARCH ON, UM, THE, APPARENTLY THE TRAVIS COUNTY, UH, HAS SOME KIND OF SYSTEM, UH, FOR, AND I'LL LET HIM TALK ABOUT IT SINCE HE WAS THE ONE THAT DID THE RESEARCH ON IT, BUT THE SHERIFF'S COUNTY HAS A SYSTEM THAT I THINK WAS REALLY GOOD FOR PUBLIC COMMENT THAT HE WAS DESCRIBING.

AND IT'S, THEY SPECIFICALLY LOOK AT THAT PROPOSAL AND PUTTING, PURCHASING THAT FOR THE CITY.

SURE, SURE.

AND, AND I, I CAN ADDRESS IT REAL QUICK IF THAT'S OKAY.

AND, UH, THE, UH, TRAVIS COUNTY, ACTUALLY, I USE THAT SYSTEM.

I WAS COMMENTING AT ONE OF THE TRESS COUNTY MEETINGS LAST WEEK, AND IT WAS PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD.

THEY PUBLISHED THE CALL-IN NUMBER ON THEIR, ON THEIR PUBLIC WEBSITE.

SO YOU CALL THAT NUMBER AND YOU, THEY ASK YOU QUESTIONS, YOU TELL THEM, YOU ANSWERED THEIR QUESTIONS AND TELL THEM WHICH ITEM YOU WANT TO SPEAK ON.

AND THEY'LL PUT YOU ON THE LIST IF YOU CALL, IF YOU CALL, YOU KNOW, UH, IF YOU'RE CALLING IN THE DAY OR TWO BEFORE THE MEETING, BUT IF YOU CALL IN THE DAY OF THE MEETING, THEN THEY'LL, THEY'LL GIVE YOU THE SAME INFORMATION AND PUT YOU IN THE QUEUE.

AND IF THE ITEM IS GOING TO COME UP LATER ON, THEY'LL TELL YOU, YOU KNOW, UH, YOU KNOW, CALL BACK A LITTLE LATER AND, AND, YOU KNOW, YOU'LL BE, YOU'LL BE PUT IN THE QUEUE.

AND SO WHAT YOU DO IS YOU WAIT IN THE QUEUE AND THEN YOU CAN LISTEN TO THE WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE MEETING.

AND THEN WHEN IT'S YOUR TIME THEY TELL YOU TO SPEAK.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I LIKE ABOUT THAT, THAT SYSTEM IS THAT THE CHAIR, UH, RUNNING THE MEETING DOESN'T HAVE TO MANAGE THE QUEUE.

IT REALLY RELIEVES THE CHAIR OF HAVING TO MANAGE THAT QUEUE.

AND SO THE CHAIR CAN FOCUS ON THE MEETING AND ON, AND ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THE PUBLIC COMMENTS THAT ARE BEING MADE INSTEAD OF, AND I'M NOT SAYING OUR CHAIR IS NOT DOING A GOOD JOB, SHE'S DOING A WONDERFUL JOB.

IT'S HARD, IT'S HARD TO DO THAT WHEN YOU'RE JUGGLING MULTIPLE THINGS, YOU KNOW, AND YOU'RE TRYING TO KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING.

AND SO I, I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR THE CHAIR TRYING TO, YOU KNOW, DO THEIR JOB.

AND SO, UH, I THINK THAT WOULD HELP.

AND, AND, UM, SO THERE'S A PERSON THAT ACTUALLY MANAGES THAT QUEUE AND TELLS THEM THE CHAIR, HERE'S THE NEXT SPEAKER.

AND OF COURSE THE CHAIR CAN ASK THE PERSON THAT'S MANAGING THE Q QUESTIONS AND YOU KNOW, ABOUT THE QUEUE, THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO THAT SEEMED TO WORK SMOOTHER FOR ME AS A PUBLIC PARTICIPANT.

AND I THINK ALSO FOR THE CHAIR, I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH THAT COSTS, THAT'S A THIRD PARTY THING, THE OTHER, UH, SO I DON'T KNOW THE COST YET.

I COULD GET THAT INFORMATION, BUT, UH, THE, THE, THE OTHER THING IS THAT IT'S, I THINK IT'S A LITTLE UNCERTAIN.

THE LAST INFORMATION THAT I RECEIVED, UH, FROM ANDREW ABOUT THIS WAS THAT THE, WHEN THE GOVERNOR'S EMERGENCY ORDERS EXPIRE AT THE END OF AUGUST, THAT WE WOULD GO BACK TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS IN SEPTEMBER.

SO, UH, AND, AND, AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THERE WOULD NOT BE AN OPTION FOR, FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS ANYMORE.

AND SO I MAY HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD THAT.

SO, BUT GIVEN THAT NOW WE'RE HAVING A RESURGENCE OF THE COVID VARIANCE HERE, AND WE'RE GOING POTENTIALLY BACK TO LEVEL FOUR, THEN I DON'T KNOW IF THAT MIGHT CHANGE.

AND I, SO I JUST POINT THAT ALL OUT TO SAY THAT IT'S, THERE'S A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY HERE.

SO I THINK IT IS GOOD THAT WE PUT THIS, THIS INTO THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND THAT IF THE CITY DECIDES THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO VIRTUAL MEETINGS ANYMORE WELL, OKAY.

YOU KNOW, I HOPE THEY DON'T DECIDE THAT, BUT, UH, I THINK THE COMMISSION SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO DO THAT.

IF THEY FEEL LIKE THAT'S, THAT'S HELPFUL TO THEIR COMMISSION, ALLOW PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE VIRTUALLY.

SO ANYWAY, THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING THE RECOMMENDATION.

I CAN ADD LANGUAGE THAT SAYS EXPLORE FUND AND PURCHASE SOFTWARE TO ALLOW SPEAKERS, TO QUEUE UP, TO SPEAK IN VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETINGS.

CAN WE SPECIFICALLY MENTION, UM, THE TRAVIS COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S COURT, UH, SIMILAR TO, UH, WHAT'S USED BY TRAVIS COUNTY COMMISSIONER'S COURT? WOULD THAT WORK FOR EVERYBODY? I THINK I'M SEEING ANOTHER HAND OVER THERE.

YUP.

GREENBURG GO AHEAD MEETINGS BECAUSE WE'RE NOT SURE GOING FORWARD, WHETHER THERE WILL BE VIRTUALLY ALL MEETINGS, SO MAYBE VIRTUAL OR HYBRID.

OKAY.

PURCHASE A SOFTWARE, OUR LAST SPEAKERS TO QUEUE UP TO SPEAK IN VIRTUAL OR HYBRID MEETINGS.

TO, UH, WHAT'S USED BY TRAVIS COUNTY.

COMMISSIONER'S QUARTER.

MY QUESTION FOR COMMISSIONER KING IS YOU WERE ON THE PHONE, RIGHT? SO IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY, IT'S KIND OF LIKE MORE LIKE A CONFERENCE CALL

[00:50:01]

THAN IT IS WITH VIDEO AND EVERYTHING.

NO, IT IT'S ACTUALLY A SERVICE.

IT'S NOT SURE IF THE COUNTY HAD TO PURCHASE ANY SOFTWARE, BUT, BUT IT'S A THIRD PARTY THAT THIRD PARTY MANAGES ACUTE.

AND, AND IT'S NOT THAT IT'S NOT TRAVIS COUNTY DOING IT IT'S PARTY, BUT IT'S, AGAIN, YOU WERE JUST ON THE PHONE.

IT WASN'T RIGHT.

I WAS JUST, I WAS A PUBLIC PARTICIPANT.

YES.

AND, AND I THINK COMMISSIONER POINT ABOUT A HYBRID IS, YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT'S REALLY A GOOD, IMPORTANT POINT WHETHER WE GO ON APART OR HYBRID THAT'S THAT WE WOULD HAVE THAT OPTION.

THANK YOU.

YOU ACTUALLY DID THAT TODAY ON THE COUNTY OR THE ANDY WAS LIKE VIRTUAL, BUT THEY HADN'T COMMISSIONERS THERE ON SITE.

SO IT WAS LIKE THEY DID THAT HYBRID TODAY.

YEAH.

AND I'M SECOND, YOU KNOW, I THINK LEADERS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB, BUT IT IS HAVING FUN MEETINGS AND OTHER FORMATS IT'S LIKE, WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO DEAL WITH, WHO'S GOING TO SPEAK IT, IT'S DISTRACTING FROM TRYING TO LISTEN TO WHAT PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY SAYING.

AND I ALSO KNOW THAT'S BEEN A DIFFICULTY WITH, UH, STAFF.

UH, WE HAVE, WHAT'S DEFINITELY IS ON JUST TRYING TO HANDLE A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT WALLS AND IT'S NOT IN THAT NOT IDEAL RESULT OF PEOPLE HAVING TO SIGN UP TO SPEAK WAY AHEAD OF TIME.

SO AS MUCH AS WE COULD EXPORT THAT, THAT WOULD BE GOOD.

UM, UH, ANOTHER THING I WANTED TO ASK ABOUT, UM, IS THAT I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE'S SOME FEEDBACK.

I DON'T, IF THERE'S A MINORS SOME MOMENT, AVA.

OKAY.

UH, UH, THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF, LIKE OUR CITY IN GENERAL IS TERRIBLE.

AS FAR AS TIMELINES ON HOW FAST WE APPROVE THINGS.

UM, I'VE TALKED TO SOMEONE TODAY, UH, CONNOR, KENNY Y'ALL THROUGH Y'ALL MIGHT KNOW, UH, HE USED TO BE, UH, ON THE COMPLAINANT COMMISSION.

NOW HE'S STARTING AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT, UH, UH, COMPANY.

AND JUST TALKING ABOUT HOW TELLING ME THAT, LIKE IN AUSTIN, IT TAKES, UH, IN MOST CITIES IN TEXAS, IT TAKES SIX MONTHS TO APPROVE, GET SOMETHING THROUGH SITE PLAN AND ALL THAT.

AND ALSO IT TAKES A YEAR AND A HALF.

UM, AND THERE'S ALSO, UH, TALK TO OTHER MEETINGS, UH, WOULD HAVE BEEN A PART OF THAT, THAT THERE'S ABOUT A 15% INTEREST RATE THAT YOU PAY WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO DEVELOP, YOU KNOW, BUY PROPERTY TO DEVELOP SOMETHING.

AND WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS THAT THERE'S A HUGE AMOUNT OF COST.

IT'S GETTING ADDED TO THE COST OF HOUSING IN AUSTIN.

UH, JUST BECAUSE OUR PROCESSES ARE SO SLOW, UM, ESPECIALLY COMPARED TO PEER CITIES, UH, YOU KNOW, UH, DOWNRIGHT, YOU KNOW, I SAID THREE TIMES LONGER, UH, YOU KNOW, IN HOUSTON IT TAKES UP, YOU CAN EVEN TAKE JUST LIKE 30 DAYS TO APPROVE SOMETHING THAT COULD TAKE OVER A YEAR IN AUSTIN.

UM, AND I, I AM NOT DETERMINED ENOUGH WITH THAT PROCESS TO KNOW HOW MUCH OF THAT'S A STAFFING ISSUE.

UH, BUT I STRONGLY SUSPECT THAT IT IS A BUDGETING PROBLEM.

IN MANY WAYS IT COULD BE A BUDGETING PROBLEM, UH, ESPECIALLY IF THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH STAFF TO REMOVE THE REVIEW THINGS IN A TIMELY MANNER.

UH, AND SO I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING MORE WE CAN ADD TO TRY TO ADDRESS THAT PROBLEM WITH THIS.

AND, UM, YOU KNOW, THAT SEEMS TO BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS IN PROBLEMS WITH AUSTIN'S HOUSING MARKET RIGHT NOW THAT DOESN'T SEEM TO GET ADDRESSED ENOUGH.

I MIGHT BE ABLE TO GENERALLY CHAIR ANSWER THAT QUESTION IF I CAN, UM, IN LOOKING AT THE BUDGET OVER THE COURSE OF ONE WEEK, JUST ONE WEEK, UH, CAUSE IT CAME OUT A WEEK, UH, PRIOR TO THAT FRIDAY, UH, STAFF ADDED A LOT OF FOLKS TO EXPEDITE REVIEW TIMES AND THE REASON THEY DID THAT MID YEAR, WHICH IS NOT, UH, FOLLOWING THEIR NORMAL PROCESSES AND POLICIES RELATING TO THE BUDGET WAS THEY HAD ASSUMED DURING COVID WE'D HAVE LESS, UH, PEOPLE APPLYING, WELL, THAT'S NOT BEEN THE CASE.

AND SO THEY HAVE BEEN, UM, KILLED, UH, SO THEY ADDED SUBDIVISION PLANNERS, THEY ADDED IN, UM, I, UM, I'M NOT SURE PERHAPS, UH, UH, I KNOW THAT, UH, OUR, UH, VICE CHAIR WAS FOLLOWING THIS ISSUE A LITTLE MORE AND THIS MIGHT BE WORTH JUST GETTING A MEMO ON, OR MAYBE A COMMISSIONER, UH, OR OUR CHAIR MIGHT KNOW, BUT THEY HAVE ADDED STAFF, UH, FOR THAT, THAT WHERE THEY WOULDN'T LOOKING OVER THE HOUSING BUDGET, THEY HAVE NOT ADDED, UH, THEY HAVE ADDED ONE, UH, PERSON SPECIFICALLY TO RE VIEW EXPEDITING THE PERMITS.

AND IT MAY BE DSB FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

SO MAYBE WHAT WE SHOULD DO IS JUST ADD A RESOLUTION TO HAVE ENCOURAGED COUNCIL TO GET AN UPDATE AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND ZAP GET AN UPDATE ON REVIEW TIMES AND WHETHER THEY'RE ALL BEING MET, DOES THAT WORK FOR FOLKS? OR

[00:55:01]

WE COULD PUT IN, IS THAT, IS THAT FOR D FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS? ARE YOU RECOMMENDING, OR I THOUGHT THIS COULD BE PART OF YOUR BUDGET RECOMMENDATION.

YEP.

THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

DOES THAT WORK FOR YOU COMMISSIONER BRAG, TO CLARIFY, YOU'RE SAYING YOU WANTED TO ADD THAT POINT ABOUT GETTING REVIEW ABOUT BUDGET TIMES OR REVIEW TIMES WHAT THE REASONS FOR THE LONG REVIEW TIMES ARE ACTUALLY, UM, YOU KNOW, WHAT, IT SHOULDN'T BE PART OF THE BUDGET, CAUSE WE'RE NOT, UH, UH, MAYBE THE, I WAS THINKING ABOUT IT IN TERMS OF THIS RESOLUTION SAYING REVIEW, UM, YOU KNOW, STAFFING LEVELS TO ENSURE REVIEW TIMES ARE MET.

I, I THINK THAT'S A GOOD, I LIKE THAT.

YEAH, SURE.

STAFFING REVIEW TIMES ARE MET.

UM, AND EVEN IF, YOU KNOW, SO REVIEW TIMES IT'S KNOW YOU COULD SAVE THOUSANDS TO POTENTIALLY SAVE MILLIONS ON THE COST OF HOUSING.

SO IT'S A VERY POTENTIALLY COST EFFECTIVE.

MAY I JUST ADD SOME IMPORTANT COMMENTS HERE? IF YOU GUYS, THE PORTIONS HERE, I BELIEVE COUNCIL HAS ALREADY, UH, PASSED A RESOLUTION OF SUPPORT TO ADD 41 NEW FULL-TIME STAFF POSITION TO DSD DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT.

AND SO TO THAT END, I THINK THAT THAT CAN HELP TO ADDRESS THE, IF IT'S A STAFFING.

UH, I BELIEVE THAT THAT WOULD HELP WITH THAT.

I, I THINK THAT'S THE INTENTION IS TO HELP SPEED UP THOSE REVIEW TIMES AND GET, GIVE MORE OF THE PROJECTS THROUGH THE PIPELINE BASICALLY.

AND THEORETICALLY, THAT'S GOING TO PAY FOR ITSELF, YOU KNOW, THAT THOSE STAFF POSITIONS WILL PAY FOR THEMSELVES.

SO IN TERMS OF AFFORDABILITY THAT MAYBE THAT WOULD HELP IN TERMS OF OUR CITY BUDGET HERE.

UH, BUT I, BUT SO I THINK THAT COULD HELP ADDRESS SOME OF WHAT YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT, BUT ALSO I THINK IT IS GOOD TO HAVE, UH, REGULAR REPORTS ON, ON THE REVIEW TIMES AND HOW, HOW WELL WE'RE MEETING THE STANDARDS ON THOSE.

I THINK THAT'S REALLY GOOD.

OH, GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER, CAN YOU MUTE, I'M SORRY.

I THINK THAT'S CAUSING A BIT OF A REVERB.

GO AHEAD.

DINKLER SO THE LANGUAGE, IF THIS MEETS Y'ALL'S APPROVAL IS, UH, APPROVE, UH, MOBA ENSURE STAFFING, UH, REVIEWED ADEQUATE STAFFING TO MAKE SURE REVIEW TIMES ARE MET.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS OR FEEDBACK FOR ITEM C C2.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR PUTTING THIS TOGETHER.

YOU GUYS, THIS IS SOME GOOD STUFF.

YES.

COMMISSIONER KING.

I'LL BE ON MUTE.

I'M SORRY.

COMMISSIONER DINKLER WOULD YOU, I CAN MAKE A MOTION FOR COMMISSION, UH, SUPPORT FOR THIS, FOR THESE RECOMMENDATIONS, UM, MOVE APPROVAL AS AMENDED, UH, AND THAT THE RECOMMENDATIONS BE SENT TO THE COUNCIL, UH, MS. THE CITY MANAGER FOR DISTRIBUTION, UH, THE INTERIM BUDGET OFFICER, UH, AND THEN TO COME BACK TO US, THE FINAL SIGNED COFFEES, SO ALL KNOW THAT IT'S BEEN PROPERLY DEALT WITH.

AND I WANT TO THANK Y'ALL FOR YOUR HARD WORK ON THIS.

SO THAT WAS MY MOTION THERE.

SECOND THERE FROM COMMISSIONER KING.

OKAY.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE, UM, RECOMMENDED LANGUAGE.

OKAY.

THAT'S UNANIMOUS.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS.

I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AND YOUR WORK AND YOUR HELP WITH THIS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

AND WRAPPING THIS UP AND DOING THAT.

YOU BET.

COMMISSIONER DINKLER.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TOO.

I REALLY ENJOYED WORKING WITH YOU ON THIS.

OKAY.

YEAH, IT'S VERY IMPRESSIVE.

I WILL, I WILL SAY ONE THING.

IT REALLY SHOWED ME THAT WE REALLY NEED TO BE ADDRESSING THE GROWTH ISSUES BETTER.

WE HAVE, UH, WE HAVE A FLOODING COMMITTEE AND I'M NOT, WE SHOULDN'T BE LOOKING AT, AND I HAVEN'T DECIDED THAT THIS SHOULD BE A FUTURE BUDGET ITEM, BUT WE DON'T.

I WAS SHOCKED HOW MUCH CIP IS HAPPENING.

WE ARE GOING IN MY TYPE OUT MY LITTLE QUICK SUMMARY THAT I SHARED WITH YOU.

THIS IS THE YEAR OF IMPLEMENTATION OF CIP.

THEY ARE DOING MOBILITY WORK.

THEY ARE DOING HOUSING.

THEY ARE DOING AN UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT OF CIP WORK.

AND A LOT OF THE STAFFING ADDITIONS HAVE BEEN TO ADDRESS THAT.

BUT I DIDN'T, I'VE NEVER S I HAVE TO ADMIT, I HADN'T SEEN THAT CIP LIST UNTIL I WENT THROUGH IT.

AND I'M WONDERING IF WE SHOULDN'T BE WEIGHING IN,

[01:00:01]

ON THAT, UM, CRP PROJECTS OR FIGURING OUT HOW WE CAN TRACK OUR GROWTH, UH, BETTER IN SOME FORM OF COMMITTEE COMMITTEE.

UM, SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.

SOUNDS LIKE A FUTURE AGENDA ITEM.

YEAH.

SO WE DID.

ANDREW, CAN YOU REMIND ME WHEN, UH, DR.

VALENCIA IS COMING TO SPEAK WITH US ON THE TIME FOR THAT AND SHARE THAT THAT'S THE DEMOGRAPHER.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR REMINDING US ABOUT THAT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

SO ANDREW WILL LET US KNOW WHEN SHE'S COMING AND THEN IT SOUNDED AS IF WE WOULD ALSO LIKE

[D. FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS]

TO DO HAVE A FEW.

SO I'M GOING, MOVING ON TO D FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS, SOME REPORT FROM STAFF ABOUT, UM, RESPONSE TIMES.

DOES THAT SOUND LIKE SOMETHING WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THEM ABOUT? AND I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S SOMETHING THEY ALREADY PRODUCE, OR IF THAT'S A LOT OF EXTRA WORK OR IF THAT'S SOME KIND OF KPI THAT THEY HAVE TO MEET ANYWAY, BUT WITH THE CHANGE, THERE WAS LIKE THAT 30 DAY CHANGE IN THE LEGISLATURE THAT REQUIRED.

I'M JUST WONDERING HOW QUICKLY THEY'RE OR HOW OFTEN THEY'RE MEETING THAT TARGET OR HOW OFTEN THINGS ARE GETTING APPROVED WITHOUT, UM, THE P THE GOING THROUGH THE DUE PROCESS.

IS THAT SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE WOULD ELSE WOULD LIKE TO SPONSOR? IF I MIGHT, YOU KNOW, I, I THINK, YOU KNOW, THAT WE COULD HANDLE THAT IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

IF WE WANTED TO CREATE A, UH, A WORK GROUP OR JUST TO HAVE TWO OF US WORK ON THAT, WHAT WE COULD DO IS WE COULD GET ASKED FOR THAT INFORMATION FROM STAFF AND THEN PROVIDE THAT TO THE FULL COMMISSION AND THEN GO FROM THERE.

BECAUSE IF I AGREE, I HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

IF THEY'RE ALREADY PRODUCING THAT INFORMATION, MAYBE WE JUST NEED TO BE ABLE TO GET ACCESS TO IT ON A MORE REGULAR BASIS.

AND, AND SO WE CAN ADDRESS THAT IF YOU PREFER TO DO IT THAT WAY.

OKAY.

SO WE WOULD MAKE THAT A FUTURE AGENDA ITEM, AND THEN, YOU KNOW, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP GET THAT INFORMATION.

OKAY.

AND I WILL, I WILL WORK WITH YOU TO DO THAT.

LET'S DO IT TOGETHER.

SO WE WILL BE, UM, CONTACTING STAFF AND UNDERSTANDING THE, UM, REVIEW PROCESS, TIMELINE, AND ADHERENCE TO THEIR, UM, SCHEDULE REQUIREMENTS.

OKAY, GREAT.

OKAY.

AND I'LL WEIGH IN ON, I'D LOVE TO JOIN Y'ALL I JUST GET, SHARE IT.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO HELP.

YEAH.

I IMAGINE WE'LL JUST, WE'LL REACH OUT TO ANDREW FIRST AND HAVE HIM HELP US.

SOUNDS GOOD.

IT WOULD BE THE BEST INTERESTED IN THAT AS WELL, BUT I KNOW WE HAVE TO NOT RECORD THEM, BUT CHECK IN WITH .

SO IF WE COULD JUST HAVE THE TWO CO-SPONSORS WHO WILL PLACE IT ON THE AGENDA FOR THE NEXT TIME.

THAT'S FINE.

SO, AND COMMISSIONER KING, THERE WE GO.

UH, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION? YEAH.

I JUST WANT TO CHECK IN ON THE, UM, WATERSHED SUMMARY THAT WAS FLOATED AROUND.

ANDREW, DO WE HAVE AN UPDATE ON THAT PROCESS? SURE.

COMMISSION LIAISON HANDLER.

WE'RE STILL, UM, WE'RE WORKING NOW ON THAT SCHEDULING DIDN'T WHAT DID WE GET ANY FEEDBACK ON THE DOCUMENT? STAFF IS STILL REVIEWING.

YEAH.

OKAY.

BUT FROM COMMISSIONERS, EVERYONE HAVE AMPLE TIME TO REVIEW IT AND MAKE ANY COMMENTS.

I JUST DIDN'T SEE ANY TRAFFIC.

SO I THOUGHT IT LOOKED GOOD TO ME.

I'M CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT STAFF HAD TO SAY IN RESPONSE, SO, ALL RIGHT.

THANKS.

YES.

COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT.

I, I CONCUR.

IT WAS, I LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT STAFF HAS TO SAY AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

I ACTUALLY DIDN'T SEE THIS WHERE WHERE'S THIS MAILED IT A WHILE, BUT IT WASN'T REALLY LIKE A MONTH AGO.

YEAH.

IT'S BEEN A LITTLE WHILE I CAME FROM ANDREW.

IT WAS BEFORE JULY 4TH.

SO MAYBE IF YOU WENT ON HOLIDAY OR SOMETHING, MAYBE IT COULD BE RE MAILED AGAIN.

UM, I REMEMBER LOOKING AT IT THINKING IT WAS GREAT.

I JUST DIDN'T DO ANY DEPTH OF RESEARCH TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD HAVE HAD, BUT, UM, IT WAS THOROUGH.

I APPRECIATE IT.

MR. POPS UP.

I WAS LIKE, OH, I DIDN'T KNOW THAT.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

LET'S JUST TRY IT.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I GOT EVERYONE'S QUESTIONS CAPTURED.

SO THANKS, ANDREW.

DO YOU MIND RESENDING THAT TO THE GROUP SO WE CAN GIVE IT ANOTHER LOOK, AND THEN ALSO WE'RE WAITING FOR, TO HEAR BACK FROM WP.

SOUNDS GOOD.

WILL DO.

OKAY.

OKAY.

WE'RE MOVING RIGHT ALONG.

ANY OTHER FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS WE NEED TO DISCUSS?

[E. COMMITTEE REPORTS & WORKING GROUPS]

[01:05:02]

OKAY.

SO I'M GOING TO MOVE ON TO ITEM E COMMITTEE REPORTS AND WORKING GROUPS, AND I'LL GO FIRST CODES AND ORDINANCES DRINK COMMITTEE WAS CANCELED AGAIN.

THIS MONTH DIDN'T HAVE ANY ITEMS, BUT MR. DUTTON ASSURES ME.

WE WILL HAVE SOME IN THE FUTURE.

AND IN FACT, OUR MEETING THAT'S SCHEDULED FOR NEXT MONTH IS GOING TO BE CANCELED.

SO OUR, UH, THE NEXT MEETING AFTER THAT WOULD BE OCTOBER, UNLESS THERE'S SOME ITEM THAT DOES COME UP AND WE WOULD CALL A SPECIAL MEETING.

OKAY.

HOW ABOUT THE ONION CREEK AND LOCALIZED FLOODING WORKING GROUP? DID YOU GUYS MEET? WE, WE HAVEN'T MET YET, BUT I'D LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THAT.
