ON TO B ONE.

OH, IF THERE'S ANYONE ON THE PHONE, WE DIDN'T DO THIS.

UM, I HOPE THERE'S NOT, I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY SPEAKERS.

CAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE WE ARE GOING TO SPEAK ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS THAT PEOPLE ARE IN OPPOSITION TO, SO LET'S JUST KEEP MOVING ON.

OKAY.

SO WE'RE ON TO BE ONE AND WE WILL HEAR THE STAFF.

YEAH.

MS. ROSE, ARE YOU THERE? HELLO, THIS IS AM.

AND D THIS IS WENDY RHODES.

UM, I'M SORRY.

I WAS ON MUTE.

I DID.

IT'S THAT? UH, THIS IS WENDY ROSE CASE MANAGER WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

THIS IS CASE NUMBER C 14 20 21 0 0 94, KNOWN AS FOX HOLLOW MULTIFAMILY.

THIS IS A 13.92 ACRE TRACK LOCATED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF BRANT ROAD.

IT'S A TWO LANE ROADWAY EAST OF 35 AND ABOUT SIX TENTHS OF A MILE SOUTH OF SLAUGHTER LANE.

THIS PROPERTY SLOPES TOWARDS SLAUGHTER CREEK AND GENERALLY FOLLOWS E WHICH GENERALLY FOLLOWS THE WEST PROPERTY LINE.

IT HAS SEVERAL GROUPINGS OF TREES AS WELL AS,

[00:10:01]

UM, BUT IS OTHERWISE UNDEVELOPED EXCEPT FOR A BARN.

UH, THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN ZONED IN RURAL RESIDENTS SINCE ITS ANNEXATION INTO THE CITY LIMITS IN DECEMBER OF 2003, UH, FOR THERE IS A TXDOT OFFICE AND MAINTENANCE FACILITY, AS WELL AS THE CHURCH AND THE CROSSING AT ONION CREEK, SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION TO THE NORTH TO THE EAST IS COUNTY LAND UNDEVELOPED THERE TO THE SOUTH IS THE PARKSIDE AT SPOTTER CREEK, SINGLE FAMILIES OF DIVISION.

AND THEN THERE ARE COMMERCIAL USES AT BRANDT AND 35.

THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING TO ZONE THE PROPERTY TO THE MULTIFAMILY FOUR, WHICH IS MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENCE, MODERATE HIGH MF, FOUR DISTRICTS MAYBE DEVELOP APPROXIMATELY 200 APARTMENT UNITS.

AND THE, THE APPLICANT IS AMENABLE TO A 50 FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT ON THE PROPERTY.

I HAVE ATTACHED A CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN SHOWING THAT THE APARTMENTS WOULD BE LOCATED ON A 10 ACRE DEVELOPABLE AREA ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE PROPERTY, ADJACENT TO THE LAND IN TRAVIS COUNTY.

UH, THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION FOR THIS THAT'S MULTIFAMILY, RESIDENTIAL LOW DENSITY.

AND OUR RATIONALE FOR THAT RECOMMENDATION IS THAT THIS, WE BELIEVE THIS PROPERTY IS SUITABLE FOR AN ADDITIONAL RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AND F TWO WOULD BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE ADJACENT SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISIONS THAT I MENTIONED.

UH, THERE ARE COMMERCIAL USES THAT WOULD SERVE THE RESIDENTS AT THE INTERSECTION OF AGE 35 AND BRENT ROAD, AS WELL AS COMMERCIAL SHOPPING CENTERS ACROSS AGE 35 TO THE WEST, LIKE SOUTH PARK MEADOWS, AND AS WELL, THERE WAS A NEIGHBORHOOD TRAFFIC ANALYSIS, UH, MEMO THAT WAS COMPLETED FOR IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ZONING CASE THAT RECOMMENDS RECONSTRUCTING BRANT ROAD TO URBAN STANDARDS ALONG THE PROPERTY FRONTAGE.

SO OUR RECOMMENDATION IS FOR MF .

I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE THAT THE APPLICANT HAD A FEW MEETINGS WITH, UH, RESIDENTS OF THE SURROUNDING AREA.

I'M SURE THEY WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THAT.

AND, UH, THAT, AND AS WELL, THERE WAS A COUNCIL RESOLUTION ADOPTED ON JULY THE 29TH, UH, RELATED TO THE ALLOCATION OF HOUSING TAX CREDITS AND PRIVATE ACTIVITY BONDS.

AND THAT'S ALL ATTACHED IN THE STAFF REPORT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MS. RHODES.

AND NOW, UM, ANDREW WILL HELP US WITH THE SPEAKER IT'S ORGANIZED THAN I AM.

SO WE'LL BEGIN WITH THE APPLICANT, MR. DRE, SECURA YOU'LL HAVE SIX MINUTES SELECT STAR SIX.

MY NAME IS JASON GRIS, CIVIL ENGINEER WITH DUNAWAY ASSOCIATES.

I'M REPRESENTING THIS AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT TONIGHT.

THE PRESENTATION WAS QUITE THOROUGH.

MY COMMENTS WILL BE BRIEF.

UH, THE RESIDENTS OF THE ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE A LOT OF CONCERNS REGARDING TRAFFIC, WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE.

HOWEVER, THOSE PROBLEMS ARE EXISTING PROBLEMS THAT HAVE SOLUTIONS BEYOND WHAT A SINGLE PROJECT CAN ADDRESS.

UH, THE CASE BEFORE YOU IS SIMPLY FOR LANDINGS AND THE PROJECTS MITIGATION FOR TRAFFIC INCREASE ON GRANT ROAD WILL BE WORKED OUT WITH THE STAFF AT THE SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT STAGE, AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER DETAILS REQUIRED FOR CODE COMPLIANCE, UH, ZONING BEING SOUGHT AS IN BEFORE, JUST TO GET THE 50 FOOT HEIGHT FOR ONE OF THE BUILDINGS IN ORDER TO GET AS MANY AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS AS POSSIBLE.

UH, SINCE THE DEVELOPMENT IS PUSHED TO THE NORTH CORNER AND SPACE IS LIMITED, UH, TONIGHT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OR MYSELF AND OTHER STAFF FROM DUNAWAY THAT'S WEATHER, AS WELL AS THE DEVELOPER.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL END MY REMARKS AND I'LL WAIT YOUR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, MRS. TOGETHER.

NOW WE'LL HEAR FROM MR. JAKE BROWN.

SO LIKE START A SIX.

YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

CAN YOU GUYS HEAR ME? OKAY.

PROCEED JAKE BROWN I'M WITH LDG DEVELOPMENT DEVELOPER OF THE PROPERTY.

UM, MS. RHODES GAVE HIM A PRETTY THOROUGH PRESENTATION, SO ON OUR APPLICATION.

SO I WON'T TAKE UP TOO MUCH OF YOUR TIME, BUT JUST KIND OF IN, IN RECAP, IN SUMMARY, WE'RE PROPOSING AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT TO ACTUALLY A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE HOUSING AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

UH, THIS ROAD'S DETAILED AT THE RESOLUTION AND NO OBJECTION FOR THE TAX CREDIT FINANCING WAS APPROVED BY THE AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL ON JULY 29TH, A FEW WEEKS AGO, WE ARE IN FACT PROPOSING TO CHANGE THE ZONING FROM IRR TO MF FOUR.

AND REALLY THAT'S THE ONLY REASON THAT IS JUST KIND OF A FUNCTION OF REQUESTS FOR ADDITIONAL HEIGHTS.

AND WE HAVE IN FACT HAD THREE COMMUNITY MEETINGS WITH THE PARKSIDE AT SLAUGHTER CREEK NEIGHBORHOOD.

I BELIEVE AT LEAST TWO OF THOSE MEETINGS, UH, ALSO HAD PARTICIPANTS FROM THE CROSSING AND ONION CREEK NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND WE'VE ALSO ACTUALLY HAD ONE COMMUNITY MEETING WITH THE, UH, PERKIN VALLEY COMMUNITY.

SO I'M AVAILABLE.

I'M MORE THAN HAPPY TO ANY QUESTIONS THAT THERE MAY HAVE.

UH, THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR YOU GUYS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. .

NOW WE'LL HEAR FROM JOHN NOEL SELECT STAR SIX.

YOU'LL HAVE THREE

[00:15:01]

MINUTES.

OKAY.

WE'LL HEAR FROM MIKE MALONE.

MR. MALONE, YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES SELECT STAR SIX.

YES.

THIS IS MIKE MALONE.

UM, UM, UH, THE DONE IT WITH DUNAWAY.

UH, I'M UH, ONE OF THE ENGINEERS THAT WAS WORKING ON THE PROJECT, UH, MY STATEMENT WILL BE VERY BRIEF.

UH, I'M MAINLY, UH, HANDLING THE DRAINAGE AND THE FLOODPLAIN FOR THIS SITE, UH, WITH IT BEING DEVELOPED AND THE SITE WILL BE DEVELOPED SUCH THAT WE WILL NOT BE IMPACTING THE FLOOD PLAIN.

UM, NEITHER THE TRIP NOR ONION CREEK.

UM, THE FLOODPLAIN THAT YOU SEE THAT IS SHOWN ON ME CAUSE IN THE PACKAGE IS ACTUALLY BACKWATER EFFECT FROM ONION CREEK.

UM, AND THAT IS, UH, EFFECTIVELY WHAT IS GOING ON.

UM, OTHER THAN THAT, WE WILL BE BUILDING EVERYTHING TO, UM, YOU KNOW, THE, THE TWENTY-FIVE SEVEN DRAINAGE CODE FROM THE LDC, UM, AS WELL AS ANY OTHER, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL CODES THAT WE WILL HAVE TO BUILD TO COMPLIANCE.

AND THAT IS IT FOR ME.

THANK YOU.

WE'LL NOW HEAR FROM MR. .

OKAY.

MOVING ON TO MYTH, SUZANNE SHORTENER, GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS SUZANNE SCHWERTNER AND I'M WITH AUSTIN AFFORDABLE HOUSING CORPORATION, WHICH IS THE REAL ESTATE ARM OF THE HOUSING AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

OUR MISSION IS TO PRESERVE AND INCREASE THE STOCK OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR LOW TO MODERATE INCOME FAMILIES.

IN AUSTIN.

TODAY, WE HAVE PRESERVED AND CONSTRUCTED A PORTFOLIO OF 11,500 UNITS IN THE 2017 AUSTIN STRATEGIC HOUSING BLUEPRINT ADOPTED BY THE AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL.

IT WAS DETERMINED THAT AN ADDITIONAL 60,000 UNITS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING WAS NEEDED BY THE YEAR 2025, TO KEEP UP WITH THE GROWTH IN AUSTIN.

THE BLUEPRINT ALSO STATED THAT 25% OF THOSE AFFORDABLE UNITS THAT ARE CREATED OR PRESERVED SHOULD HAVE TWO OR MORE BEDROOMS AND A SYSTEM TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN.

WE BELIEVE OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH LDG DEVELOPMENT ON THE FOX HOLLOWS PROJECT, BOTH FURTHERS HOKAS MISSION AND THE STRATEGIC HOUSING BLUEPRINT GOALS, LDG AND HACA ARE BOTH LONG-TERM OWNERS OF OUR PROPERTIES.

WE ACCEPT SECTION EIGHT VOUCHERS AND ALL OF OUR PROPERTIES IN A CITY WHERE THE MAJORITY OF THE LANDLORDS DO NOT.

AND WE HAVE SEEN THE VOUCHER HOLDERS HAVE THE GREATEST NEED FOR TWO, THREE, AND FOUR BEDROOM UNITS.

ALSO IN THE PAST WHEN FAMILIES OUTGREW A TWO BEDROOM APARTMENT, THEIR NEXT STEP WAS HOMEOWNERSHIP.

THE REALITY IN AUSTIN, TEXAS TODAY IS THAT THE MAJORITY OF RENTERS CANNOT AFFORD THIS NEXT STEP TO HOME OWNERSHIP, WHICH THEN CREATES THE DEMAND FOR THREE AND FOUR BEDROOM UNITS AS SUBMITTED FOX HOLLOW IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO ADD 203 AFFORDABLE UNITS WITH 156 TO THREE AND FOUR BEDROOM UNITS WITH AMENITIES AND RESOURCES THAT WILL SERVE FAMILIES.

WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL APPROVE THIS STONING REQUEST SO THAT WE CAN PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO A DEMOGRAPHIC IN GREAT NEED.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

OKAY.

ONE WE'LL HEAR FROM THE OPPOSITION BEGINNING WITH MR. JOHN, I CAN MR. IKE AND YOU'LL HAVE SIX MINUTES SELECT STAR SIX AND AND BEAR WITH ME JUST ONE SECOND.

WE'RE LOADING YOUR PRESENTATION.

CAN YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN THE PRESENTATION IS FULL SCREEN BEFORE MY TIME BEGINS, MR. ARKIN, PLEASE PROCEED.

HELLO, MY NAME IS JOHN IKE AND I'M THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE PARKSIDE AT SLAUGHTER CREEK HOA.

I'M SPEAKING FOR MYSELF ABOUT HOW THIS IS THE RIGHT CAUSE, BUT THE WRONG LOCATION.

NEXT TO SLIDE TWO, PLEASE.

THERE'S AN EXHIBIT OF LVGS SITE PLAN AND THE ZONING INFORMATION FOR TODAY, WHICH HAS NO MENTION ABOUT WAS 14.

WE REQUESTED A SITE PLAN TO SHOW ATLAS 14 FROM THE DEVELOPER, WHICH THEY SHARED ON JULY 22ND ABOVE LEFT IN BLACK AND WHITE CIRCLED IN RED IS THE TINY MENTION ABOUT WAS 14 LG WITHHELD.

THIS SITE PLAN THAT MENTIONED THAT WAS 14 FROM THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

THE DIAGRAM TO THE RIGHT ABOVE IS THE OVERLAY I CREATED PROPERLY DEPICTING THE FLOOD PLAN WITH AN ENTIRE FOUR-STORY BUILDING AND PARKING LOT.

ANY 100 YEAR KEVIN SCHUNK WITH WATERSHED.

CONFIRM THIS NEXT TO SLIDE THREE, CONFIRMING WITH WATERSHED.

[00:20:01]

IF THAT 500 YEARS TO BE THE 100 YEAR, YOU CAN SEE THAT AN ENTIRE BUILDING AND PARKING STRUCTURE.

ISN'T IT REFERRING TO MY OVERLAY? THAT'S TRUE.

KEVIN SHRUNK CONFIRMED WITH DIVISION MANAGER WITH WATERSHED ASKING LDG.

KEVIN SAID IT WAS 100 YEAR.

SO ARE YOU DISAGREEING WITH THE WATERSHED DIRECTOR? I'M DISAGREEING, NOT DISAGREEING WITH THE WATERSHED DIRECTOR.

I'M ONLY STATING BASED ON WHAT PDH CA REQUIREMENTS ARE BASED ON NEXT TO SLIDE FOUR, WE'VE GOT SOME PRETTY SAVVY ENGINEERS.

HONESTLY, LG HAS REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE FLOOD PLAN GOING SO FAR AS TO DISAGREE WITH THE WATERSHED DIVISION MANAGER.

LDG IS PLAYING A DANGEROUS GAME WITH PEOPLE'S LIVES AND HOMES.

IN FACT, DURING SOME OF OUR DISCUSSIONS REGARDING THE FLOOD PLAIN LTG CAN BE HEARD LAUGHING ABOUT THE FLOODPLAIN SUBJECT MATTER.

THIS IS INEXCUSABLE AT LEFT OR 26 HOMES IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD WITHIN THE FLOOD PLAIN, WE DO NOT NEED A REPEAT OF THE ONION CREEK BUYOUTS.

NEXT TO SLIDE FIVE.

THIS AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL CREATED A FLOOD MITIGATION TASK FORCE.

THIS WAS THEIR RECOMMENDATION RATHER THAN FOCUSING ON BUYING STRUCTURES ALREADY FLOODED IN THE 100 YEAR FLOOD PLAIN CONSIDER PURCHASING UNDEVELOPED LAND IN FLOOD PLANS TO PREVENT THE INCREASE OF IMPERVIOUS COVER WHILE MITIGATING FUTURE FLOODING RISKS AND KITCHEN SAID FLOOD MITIGATION AS A CITY, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE CAN FOCUS ON SOLUTIONS.

THEY'RE NOT SIMPLY BUYING OUT HOMES.

OUR FLOOD MITIGATION TASK FORCE MADE A NUMBER OF RECOMMENDATIONS.

AND AS A CITY, I THINK WE NEED TO FOLLOW UP ON THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS NEXT TO SLIDE SIX.

THIS IS BRENT ROAD THIS PAST SUNDAY, AFTER A MILD RAINSTORM NOTE, THE FLOODING IMAGINE A PEDESTRIAN TRYING TO NAVIGATE THIS.

THIS DOESN'T INCLUDE AT LEAST EIGHT ACRES OF IMPERVIOUS COVER.

LDG WOULD ADD LVG IS OKAY WITH THIS, BUT IT IS NOT OKAY.

NEXT TO SLIDE SEVEN, THE AUSTIN STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN CATEGORIZES BRENT ROSE AS A SUBSTANDARD STREET.

BRENT ROAD IS A DETERIORATING ROADWAY IS ONLY 20 FEET WIDE WITH UTILITY POLES LOCATED AS CLOSE AS THREE FEET FROM THE ACTUAL, THE WAY HAS MULTIPLE CURVES HILLS AND BLIND SPOTS HAS DENSE TREES, GRADING POOR VISIBILITY AND HAS NO SHOULDERS, SIDEWALKS, GUTTERS, BIKE LANES, MEDIAN, AND NEARLY ZERO LIGHTING AT NIGHT, MAKING IT PITCH BLACK LEG HAS ENGINEERS DID NOT INCLUDE IN THEIR TIA.

ANY ADJUSTMENT FOR BEING CONDUCTED DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC INCREASED WORK FROM HOME INCREASED UNEMPLOYMENT.

AND WHEN SCHOOL IS NOT IN SESSION, ONE MUST CONCLUDE THAT GE IS INTENTIONALLY DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO MISREPRESENT THE TRUTH.

NEXT TO SLIDE EIGHT.

THIS IS AN IMAGE TO THE LEFT OF GRANT ROAD DURING THE DAY, AND AN IMAGE OF IT AT NIGHT ON THE RIGHT NEXT TO SLIDE NINE, LG HAS REPEATEDLY STATED THEY'RE FAMILIAR WITH BRENT ROAD.

HAVE YOU DRIVEN ON THE ROAD YOURSELF? AND YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE? THEY SAID, YES, I HAVE DRIVEN ON IT.

IS THAT ROAD SAFE FOR A CHILD ON A BICYCLE TO RIDE? THEY SAID, I DO NOT FIND A SAFE.

DOES LDG FEEL THAT YOU ARE TAKING IN THE SAFETY AND CONSIDERATION OF THE POPULATION YOU ARE HOPING TO SERVE AT THIS LOCATION REGARDING TRANSPORTATION? THEY SAID, YES, I DO.

IMPORTANTLY, IF THE CITY IS UNABLE TO HELP FACILITATE THE INFRASTRUCTURE, REPAIR SIDEWALKS, ET CETERA, NOW THAT YOU CLAIM TO GO AHEAD AND GO THROUGH WITH THIS.

YES.

NEXT TO SLIDE 10.

LTG SAID THAT THEY CITY OF BOSTON ARE GOING TO REQUIRE US TO CONSTRUCT A SIDEWALK ALONG GRANT ROAD.

IT IS PROPOSED TO ONLY BE ALONG THE PROPERTY LINE, SEEN ABOVE AND BLUE.

HOW DOES THIS HELP ANYONE NEXT TO SLIDE 11? ALTHOUGH THE PROPOSED CHANGE MAY SUPPORT THE POLICY GUIDANCE REGARDING HOUSING, THE LACK OF PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES AND WALKABLE DESTINATIONS, PARTICULARLY IN THE CONTEXT OF THE NARROW AND UNIMPROVED CHARACTER OF BRENT ROAD, MAKE THIS PRODUCT OUT OF ALIGNMENT WITH IMAGINE AUSTIN AND NOT SUPPORTED BY THE PLAN.

NEXT TO SLIDE 12, AS FOR SAFE ACCESS TO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FOR THE SITE, TWO MAJOR ISSUES ARE ONE.

THE WALKABILITY SCORE WAS A BISMAL RATED CAR DEPENDENT TO THE BUS STOP IS LOCATED 0.7 MILES AWAY.

A TENANT WILL HAVE TO WALK OVER HALF A MILE, LITERALLY ON A DANGEROUS TO END ROAD TO GET TO THE BUS STOP.

WE ASKED LDG IF THERE WAS NO SIDEWALK, HOW A PEDESTRIAN WOULD LITERALLY HAVE TO WALK.

AND BRENT ROAD ITSELF, LDTS DEPLORABLE ANSWER WAS SIMPLY, THAT'S ONE OF THE AVENUES THAT THEY COULD TAKE NEXT TO 13.

OUR COMMUNITY GAVE LDG THE OPPORTUNITY TO TELL US WHY WE SHOULD TRUST THAT THEY CAN COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

THE VERY LAST THING WE WANT TO DO IS PUT A DEVELOPMENT ON THE GROUND, OR EVEN PROPOSE TO PUT A DEVELOPMENT ON THE GROUND.

THAT'S GOING TO BE DETRIMENTAL TO ANY OF THE CITY INFRASTRUCTURE OR MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE RESIDENTS OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

LET'S TAKE ONE MORE.

LOOK AT THE PROPOSAL TO THE RIGHT BASED ON LDG STATEMENT.

THEY BELIEVE WHAT YOU'RE SEEING IS NOT DETRIMENTAL IN ANY WAY NEXT TO 14.

ZAP DOES LDG TRULY CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY AND WELLBEING OF THE PEOPLE THEY HOPE TO SERVE AT THIS PROPOSED SITE? OR DOES LDG CARE ABOUT THEIR FINANCIALS AS IT RELATES TO THE VIABILITY OF THE PROJECT AND DOING THE BARE MINIMUM, UNLESS THE CITY OF AUSTIN REQUIRES IT.

IF THIS ZONING REQUEST IS APPROVED, IT SAYS THAT A CHILD WALKING ON BRENT ROAD FOR OVER HALF A MILE TO THE BUS STOP WITH A POTENTIAL TO GET RUN OVER IS OKAY.

FLOODING OF HOMES, ROADWAYS, RENTERS, AND WILDLIFE IS OKAY.

INCREASE HOUSING, OUTWEIGHS THE SAFETY OF THOSE BEING HOUSED AND A DEVELOPER WHO HAD DOESN'T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO BUILD THAT THIS COMPLICATED LOCATION IS OKAY.

NEXT TO 15, THE CONS CLEARLY OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS OF FLOODING FATALITIES IMAGINED OFTEN NON-COMPLIANCE UNSAFE FOR PEDESTRIANS AND ACCURATE STUDIES, FURTHER SCHOOL OVERCROWDING, NO SAFE BUS, STOP ACCESS AND ADEQUATE PARKING DISPLACE, WILDLIFE CAR DEPENDENT AND SUBSTANDARD ROADWAY NEXT TO 16, IF IT WERE , THIS DOES NOT CHANGE ANY OF THE ISSUES NEXT TO SLIDE 17 ELEGIES DEVELOPER BIO STATES THAT THEY WERE FOUNDED BASED ON THEIR BELIEF THAT EVERYONE DESERVES A QUALITY PLACE TO LIVE.

IS THIS QUALITY FLOODING, A DANGEROUS ROAD, RAVAGED WILDLIFE AND HIGH POTENTIAL FOR FATAL ROAD ACCIDENTS.

PLEASE GO ON THE RECORD AND AGREE.

THIS IS NOT QUALITY AND OPPOSE THIS ZONING REQUEST.

LAST SLIDE.

I HAVE A VIDEO OF BRIEF OF DRIVING GRANT ROAD AND VARIOUS CONDITIONS BELOW.

I'M HAPPY TO SHARE THIS

[00:25:01]

VIDEO IF DESIRED ALL CITATIONS AND SOURCES OF QUOTES AVAILABLE AT YOUR REQUEST, I'LL REMAIN FOR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. ICAHN.

WE'LL NOW HEAR FROM DEBBIE MANER.

MS. MANOR.

YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES TO LIKE STAR SIX.

MY NAME IS HI, I'M.

MY NAME IS DEBBIE MANER.

I'M HERE AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE PARKSIDE SIDE STARTER CREEK HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION TO ITEM B ONE.

I SUBMITTED DOCUMENTS THAT ARE IN YOUR PACKET AND IT'S PAGES 35 THROUGH 50, WHICH PROVIDE DETAILS OF OUR CONCERNS ABOUT THE MS. FOUR ZONING STAFF IS NOW RECOMMENDED IMAGE TWO AND HAS INCLUDED RECOMMENDATIONS TO BE INCLUDED.

AS ZONING IS APPROVED, WE STILL HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE ZONING.

THE FIRST AND FOREMOST IS FLOODING.

WHILE THE CHANGE TO MF TWO REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF IMPERVIOUS COVER AND THE NUMBER OF APARTMENTS PER ACRE.

WE ARE STILL CONCERNED ABOUT FLOODING RISKS.

WE ARE ESPECIALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE HOMES IN OUR DEVELOPMENT THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN IDENTIFIED TO BE IN A FLOOD PLAIN PAST EXPERIENCES IN THE AREA WITH FLOODING, INCLUDING THE FLOODING THAT HAS INCURRED IN THE UNINCORPORATED AREA, GIVES OUR HOMEOWNERS UNDENIABLE APPREHENSION AND CONCERN ABOUT WHAT MAY OCCUR WITH INCREASED IMPERVIOUS COVER AND RUNOFF RESULTING FROM THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

BRANT ROAD IS ANOTHER CONCERN.

BRANT ROAD HAS PLACES WHERE IT CURRENTLY WITH HEAVY RAINFALL, THIS NARROW AND UNIMPROVED ROAD WITH NO SIDEWALKS OR DEDICATED BIKE LANES MEANS TRAVEL IS ONLY FEASIBLE VIA CAR AND MULTI-FAMILY DEVELOPMENT INCREASES.

TRAFFIC ONLY INCREASES THE NEED FOR IMPROVEMENTS.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD TRAFFIC ANALYSIS, MEMOS AND CITY STAFF RECOMMENDS THE RECONSTRUCTION OF BRANT ROAD TO URBAN STANDARDS, BUT ONLY ALONG THE PROPERTY FRONTAGE IMPROVEMENTS TO BRANT ROAD ARE DEFINITELY NEEDED, BUT THE IMPROVEMENT SHOULD INCLUDE AT A MINIMUM WORD INTERSECTS WITH 35 TO THE INTERSECTION WITH SLAUGHTER ROAD.

BUT ANY IMPROVEMENTS TO BRENT ROAD BRINGS UP THE QUESTION, WHERE IS THIS FUNDING COMING FROM? AND DOES THE CITY BUDGET HAVE FUNDS SET ASIDE TO PAY FOR ANY CONSTRUCTION ON BRENT ROAD? THE CITY STAFF IS RECOMMENDING THAT A PARKLAND DEDICATION BE REQUIRED FOR AN AREA OF THE PROPERTY NOT PLANNED TO BE DEVELOPED AT THE TIME THE DEVELOPER SUBMITS THE SUBDIVISION OR SITE PLAN.

THIS COULD ADDRESS OUR COMMUNITY CONCERNS REGARDING THE DISRUPTION TO THE NATURAL HABITAT FOR THE WHAT, FOR THE AREA WILDLIFE.

HOWEVER, THERE'S A STIPULATION IN CITY CODE THAT ALLOWS TO REQUIRE DEDICATION TO BE ACCOMPLISHED WITH THESE IN LIEU OF ACTUAL DEDICATED LAND.

WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT IF THIS BUILDING MOVES FORWARD, THAT THESE, THE LIEU OF PARKLAND DEDICATION NOT BE AUTHORIZED IN REVIEWING THE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MF TWO, WITH CONDITIONS FOR THE ZONING, WHILE THIS DOES ADDRESS SOME OF THE CONCERNS PRESENTED IN MY ORIGINAL WRITTEN DOCUMENT, THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH FLOODING AND INCREASE UTILIZATION OF A SUBSTANDARD BRANT ROAD CONTINUE TO BE A CONCERN.

MEMBERS OF THE PARKSIDE IS FLOATER CREEK HOA OR NOT SUPPORT OR RINGING IS REZONING THIS PROPERTY TO MULTIFAMILY HOUSING AND REQUEST THAT YOU DISAPPROVE THIS REQUEST FOR REZONING.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

YEAH, NOT SURE IF WE HAVE THE FOLLOWING TWO INDIVIDUALS ON THE TELECONFERENCE, BUT MR. MARK MILLER, MR. MARK MILLER, MR. LEILA BUCCO, MISS LEILA BUCCO.

OKAY.

WE'LL HEAR FROM MS. MEGHA MURPHY.

MS. MURPHY, YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES SELECT STAR SIX TO PROCEED.

HELLO.

MY NAME IS MEG MURPHY.

I'M A RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY OWNER AND CONCERN NEIGHBORHOOD.

A MEMBER.

I PROTEST THE FOX HOLLOW DEVELOPMENT BASED ON THE IMPACT PUBLIC SAFETY.

FIRST I DRIVE BRENT ROAD DAILY.

ORIGINALLY A COUNTRY BACK ROAD.

TWO LANE ROAD IS CURVY WITH MULTIPLE BLIND SPOTS, NO SHOULDERS AND OFTEN OVERGROWN VEGETATION INTRUDING INTO THE ROADWAY SECTIONS.

AND THIS ROAD ALSO EXPERIENCED FLOWED FLOODING.

THE ROAD IS DANGEROUS AND ALREADY NEEDS INVESTMENT TO WIDEN AND STRAIGHTEN TO SUPPORT THE CURRENT TRAFFIC.

THIS DEVELOPMENT WOULD MAKE SUPPORTING BOTH SCHOOL AND EMERGENCY VEHICLES EVEN MORE CHALLENGING DURING DRIVING HOURS, ANY INCREASE IN TRAFFIC WITHOUT SERIOUS UPGRADES TO BRANT ROAD POSES, A SERIOUS PUBLIC SAFETY HAZARD.

IN ADDITION, I PROTEST THE FOX HILL HOLLOW DEVELOPMENT BASED ON THE EXPERIENCE OF SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS, WHICH OVER TIME FOUND THEMSELVES AT RISK FOR FLOODING ON THE AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV WEBSITE.

[00:30:01]

THE CITY STATES ONION CREEK IS AUSTIN'S LARGEST WATERSHED IN IS PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE TO FLOODING BOTH TO THE NORTH AND SOUTH OF THIS PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, MATURE COMMUNITIES AND HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES IN AND AROUND ONION CREEK AND OTHER CREEKS EXPERIENCED FLOODING TO THE EXTENT THAT LARGE-SCALE HOME BUYOUTS WERE REQUIRED AND WHOLE NEIGHBORHOODS WERE DEMOLISHED TO THE SOUTH OF THE FOX SOLAR DEVELOPMENT IN THE UPPER ONION CREEK PROJECT AREA LOCATED IN THE ONION CREEK NEIGHBORHOOD NEAR PINEHURST DRIVE.

AND WHILE DUNES DRIVE MORE THAN 138 HOMES WERE DEMOLISHED, THE RESULTING VACANT LOSS AND ABANDONED STREETS ARE DANGEROUS AND NOTHING CLOSE TO BEING A USABLE PARK.

THE LOWER ONION CREEK PROJECT AND BUYOUT AREAS ARE NEAR WILLIAM CANNON DRIVE AND SOUTH PLEASANT VALLEY ROAD.

AGAIN, WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD WELL-ESTABLISHED WHO LATER EXPERIENCED FLOODING RESULTING IN THE DEMOLITION OF 815 HOMES OVER A 21 YEAR PERIOD FROM 1999 TO 2021 ON A RECENT DRIVE TO THE ONION CREEK METROPOLITAN PARK.

LAST SUNDAY, I PHYSICALLY OBSERVED THE AREA WHICH STILL RESEMBLED A DOOMSDAY AFTERMATH WITH SIDEWALKS, COMPLETELY OVERGROWN VEGETATION, REACHING UP TO 12 FEET AND HEIGHTS, ABANDONED VEHICLES AND UNAUTHORIZED CAMPING, ALL PUBLIC SAFETY HAZARD.

I RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THE COMMISSION, NOT IGNORE THE REAL HAZARDS OF IMPERVIOUS CONSTRUCTION IN AND AROUND OUR CREEKS AND THE RISK OF FLOODING, WHICH IN THE FUTURE COULD LEAD TO THE DEMOLITION OF MORE NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE IMPACT TO HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES.

THIS CONCLUDES MY REMARKS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO STEP BACK.

UM, MS. MICHELLE ICON, ARE YOU AVAILABLE MS. MICHELLE ICON.

OKAY.

MS. LIZ DIAZ, MS. LIZ DIAZ STUFF.

YOU'RE ON THE LINE.

OKAY.

MOVING TO MS. CINDY MURPHY, MS. CINDY MURPHY.

HI.

THANK YOU, PLEASE PROCEED.

YEAH.

HI, MY NAME IS CINDY MURPHY.

I YIELD TO MY SISTER MAG THAT JUST SPOKE VERY ELOQUENTLY AND EVERYTHING THAT JOHN AND DEBBIE SPOKE OF EARLIER.

I AM ADAMANTLY AGAINST THIS PROPOSAL.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. AARON THORPE, SELECT STAR SIX AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

HE WAS THERE.

PROCEED MY NAME'S AARON THORPE.

I'M ALSO A RESIDENT OF PARKSIDE AT SPOTTER CREEK.

I AM AS WELL AS POSED TO THIS, UH, DEVELOPMENT.

UH, I LIVE ON PETRIFIED FOREST, WHICH IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE, UH, PROPOSED PROPERTY.

AND I AGREE WITH JOHN AND, UH, THE LIKES OF THE OTHER INDIVIDUALS ON THIS CALL IN REGARDS TO THE EXTREME SAFETY ISSUE.

I HAVE SEEN THE ROAD FLOOD MULTIPLE TIMES.

I'VE SEEN BUSINESSES THAT HAVE TRIED TO BE ON THAT SIDE OF BRANT ROAD FLOOD.

UH, ONE OF WHICH WAS VITAL FARMS, WHICH HAD A CHICKEN FARM THERE, WHICH FLOODED SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND THEY LOST SEVERAL OF THEIR CHICKENS AS WELL AS MANY PIECES OF EQUIPMENT.

SO IT'S A PRETTY APPALLING TO THINK THAT THAT THIS PROPERTY IS GOING TO BE DEVELOPED INTO MULTIFAMILY HOUSING AND THINK THAT THROUGH, WE'RE JUST GOING TO TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE FACT THAT THE FLOODING IS EXISTENCE IN THE FLOODPLAIN HAS INCREASED ONLY THAT, BUT AS MENTIONED, THE ROADWAY IS EXTREMELY WINDY.

I'VE TRIED TO WATCH PEOPLE NAVIGATE THE ROAD AND THERE WAS NOWHERE FOR THEM TO GO.

I MEAN, IT IS NOT MAINTAINED WELL, I BELIEVE IT'S MAINTAINED BY THE TRAVIS COUNTY AND IT DOES NOT MAINTAIN ITS OVERGROWN BRANCHES POWER LINES.

I CAN'T SEE HOW ANYBODY IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO DEVELOP PROPERTY ON THERE, NOT INCREASE TRAFFIC AND CONCERNS FOR FLOODING.

THANK YOU FOR Y'ALL'S TIME.

THANK YOU, MR. TOM, MR. TOM, THIS IS HELLO.

THIS IS TOM ON MR. HAVEN.

2,400.

YES, I LIVE AT 2,400 MOSELLE LANE.

AND THIS IS IN ZIP CODE 44.

THIS IS THE PERKINS VALLEY AREA, AN AREA THAT HAS A 40 YEAR HISTORY OF FLOODING.

THE FLOODING, THE FLOODING TO THE HOMES GETS MORE SERIOUS WITH EACH PASSING DECADE.

IN THE RECENT PAST, WE HAD, WE COULD ACCOMMODATE EIGHT TO 10 INCHES OF RAINWATER.

UPSTREAM ARE AT THE HIGHER ELEVATION TO THE WEST.

NOW THREE INCHES IS A VERY BIG THREAT.

THE NEW APARTMENTS WEST OF THIS, OR THE REASON THEY ALREADY HAVE THREE GROUPS OF APARTMENTS THAT ARE A THREAT.

[00:35:01]

UH, THE PROBLEM, THE PROBLEM IS EVACUATION BECAUSE ONCE BLUFF SPRINGS ROAD FLOODS, THE, THE PEOPLE ON THREE STREETS ARE CUT OFF, WHICH INCLUDE BOVELL CECIL AND BURKINS.

AND UH, IF, IF, IF, IF WE WERE BOUGHT OUT IN CANOLA, WE CAN NO LONGER STAY IN AUSTIN AND THIS, THIS WOULD NOT BE AFFORDABLE FOR MYSELF AND MY WIFE.

UM, SEEING THAT THE HOUSING MARKET IS BOOMING BEYOND BELIEF.

WE'RE NOT SURPRISED BY ALL THE SURROUNDING APARTMENT DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATIONS.

THE ONION CREEK AREA IS NOT THE SLAUGHTER CREEK AREA, IT'S ONION CREEK, AND IT HAS UNIQUE FLOOD CHALLENGES.

UH, LEARNING FROM THE PAST LONG TIME RESIDENTS HAVE EXPERIENCED THE HALLOWEEN FLOODS OF 2013 AND 2015 AND MASSIVE LIVESTOCK LOSSES AND DESTRUCTIVE HOME FLOOD LOSSES.

LOCAL GOVERNMENTS HAD TO BUY OVER 500 HOMES IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN AND MANY MORE IN SOUTHEAST TRAVIS COUNTY IN OTHER 138 HOMES IN THE UPPER ONION CREEK WATERSHED WERE DESIGNATED.

LET'S BE CLEAR.

THIS IS NOT SLAUGHTER.

THIS IS NOT FATHER CLIQUE.

THIS IS ONION CREEK.

AND THE PERKINS VALLEY WAS CHANGED FOREVER, BUT THE FLOODS, UH, AFFECT THOSE WHO DON'T RESIDE IN THE AREA.

TWO HOMES IN ONION CREEK, FOREST YARRA, B BEND SILVERSTONE, AND OTHERS WERE DESTROYED AND BROUGHT OUT.

BUT BY THE CITY OF AUSTIN AND AN IMMENSE COST TO THE TAXPAYERS FEMA OR THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY PEOPLE IS THE FEDERAL AGENCIES ASSIST, BUT TENDS TO BE VERY SLOW MOVING.

PEOPLE HAD TO WAIT TWO MORE YEARS TO GET THEIR LIVES BACK TO NORMAL.

AND BASICALLY IT NEVER DID GET BACK TO NORMAL BECAUSE THEY HAD TO MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTY.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT THE, OKAY.

THANK YOU, MR. HEAD-ON.

WHEN I HEAR FROM MS. ANA AGAIN, BEAR WITH ME JUST ONE SECOND.

LET ME PULL UP YOUR PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU.

GOOD AFTERNOON, CHAIR, BUT AT, AT A MEET US AND COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS IMMEDIATE.

PAST CHAIR OF THE STOCK IS COMBINED NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN CONTACT TEAM.

THE CONTACTING MADE ON AUGUST THE NINTH AND VOTED UNANIMOUSLY IN OPPOSITION TO THIS PROPOSAL.

HERE'S A PICTURE UP OF SIPPY NAMED JUDE RODRIGUEZ.

I WILL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THEM AT THE END OF MY PRESENTATION.

NEXT SLIDE.

OUR CONCERNS ARE FLASH FLOODING AND PUBLIC SAFETY.

NEXT SLIDE.

THE ONION CREEK WATERSHED STARTS IN BLANCO COUNTY AND ENDS IN TRAVIS COUNTY IN 2013.

BY THE TIME HABER WINGS, IT STARTED IN BLANCO COUNTY REACHED THE MOVER ONION CREEK AREA AT EAST WILLIAM CANNON.

THE QUICK CREEK WAS SLOWING AT TWICE THE FORCE OF NIAGARA FALLS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THE GRAPH SHOWS YOU THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RUNOFF RATES IN AREAS WITH URBAN VERSUS UNDEVELOPED AREAS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS ANN CREEK FLOODING UNDER NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS DAMAGE TO THE UPPER ONION CREEK AREA.

CLOSE TO .

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS DAMAGE TO THE LOWER AND YOUR CREEK AREA CLOSE TO EAST WILLIAM CANNON.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS THE COVER OF THE FLOOD MITIGATION TASKFORCE REPORT IN DEPICTS A PICTURE OF THE LOWER END CREEK FLOODWATERS GOING OVER IS WILLIAM CANNON HOMES AND THE HOMES CLOSE BY HAD ONLY THEIR ROOTS VISIBLE.

NEXT SLIDE DEBRIS TAKES THEM TO BE REMOVED AND CREATES A FIRE HAZARD OR WORSE A DAM.

IF THERE IS A NEW FLOOD EVENT BEFORE EIGHT IS CLEARED.

NEXT SLIDE.

THERE'S ALSO EROSION.

NEXT SLIDE ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE CAPITA FILAMENT UPSTREAM, ESPECIALLY AS IT IS ADJACENT TO INDIAN CREEK LOSS OF LIFE OR LARGE DEBRIS GETTING WASHED DOWN IT'S ALARMING NOTE, A PROPOSED BAN SINCE SURRENDERING THIS PROPERTY POSES THE HAZARD TO PROPERTIES THAT STREAM.

NEXT SLIDE IMAGINED THE PUPILS AND DUMPSTERS BEING SLAMMED BY THE FLOODWATERS AGAINST THESE PILLARS.

SUPPORTING THIS EAST SLAUGHTER BRIDGE.

THE BLIP SPRINGS BRIDGE IS DOWNSTREAM AND FAIRLY CLOSE.

NEXT SLIDE.

WHAT ABOUT EQUITY? NEXT SLIDE, LOWER INDIAN CRICKET OVER 800 HOMES.

HOME BUYOUTS, ANY TAR COMMUNITY WAS DISPLACED BY CATASTROPHIC FLOODS.

AND I KNOW YOU HAD THE HANDFUL GET DOWN THE HOME IN AUSTIN.

NEXT SLIDE.

I CAN TELL YOU MORE ABOUT LOT, TWO LOT, OR GET UPSTREAM ADVERSITY IMPACT WE IN THE LOWER EASTERN CRESCENT OR AT A MAJOR DISADVANTAGE.

NEXT SLIDE WE'RE ASKING FOR EQUAL PROTECTION, ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE, AND SAFE AFFORDABILITY, ESPECIALLY FOR LOW INCOME RESIDENTS.

[00:40:01]

NEXT SLIDE, PUBLIC SAFETY INCLUDES PROTECTING STUDENTS AT BATES ELEMENTARY, OUR FIRST RESPONDERS IN OUR ROAD AND BRIDGE INFRASTRUCTURE.

NEXT SLIDE, DURING THE 2013 HALLOWEEN FLOOD, WE LOST EDWARD JACKSON, 32, HOPEFULLY IT'LL TAKE US AND HER EIGHT MONTH OLD SON, JAY SHOWN HERE, TWO UNIDENTIFIED MALES, 200 STUDENTS WERE HOMELESS.

1200 HOMES WERE DAMAGED DURING THE 2015 OCTOBER FLOOD.

WE LOST EDWARD EDMOND, JR.

30 SEPARATE FROM W HE WAS WITH TWO OTHER MALES THAT WERE RESCUED AND THERE'S ENOUGH, OR THESE GARSA 67.

SHE WAS WITH HER HUSBAND WHEN SHE WAS RESCUED, WHO WAS RESCUED.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET THEY WERE ON THE BLESSED BRIDGE WHEN THEY WERE SWEPT AWAY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION.

THANK YOU, MR. GETTY.

NOW WE'RE HERE FOR THE, UM, WE'LL HEAR FROM MR. CIGARETTE OR THE APPLICANT REBUTTAL.

MR. SEGA.

YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES, UH, COMMISSIONER.

UH, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THAT.

UM, THE RESIDENTS ALL HAVE SOME VALID CONCERNS, BUT AS I MENTIONED IN THE OPENING REMARKS, UH, A LOT OF THE DETAILS FOR THE SITE DEVELOPMENT, UH, ARE ADDRESSED.

I'M SORRY, THERE, THE DETAILS ARE ADDRESSED AT THE SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT STAGE.

UH, THE CODE DOES NOT ALLOW US TO INCREASE, UH, THE, UH, THE CODE DOES NOT ALLOW US TO CONSTRUCT IN THE FLOOD PLAIN, UNLESS WE MITIGATE, UH, BY PROVIDING SOME ADDITIONAL CONVEYANCE AND SOME OF THE LOCATION, UH, THE CODE, UH, REQUIRES THAT SIDEWALKS BE CONSTRUCTED.

UH, YES, IT IS TRUE THAT THEY ONLY HAVE TO BE CONSTRUCTED, UH, OR CONSTRUCTED ALONG THE FRONTAGE OF THIS PROJECT.

UH, BUT BRANT ROAD IS MORE THAN JUST THIS ONE PROJECT.

UH, WE, UH, WORKED CLOSELY.

THE DEVELOPER HAS WORKED CLOSELY, UH, WITH COMMISSIONER KITCHEN KITCHENS OFFICE, UH, TO TRY AND DETERMINE AHEAD OF TIME WHAT MIGHT BE DONE.

UH, BUT THIS IS PROBABLY A LONGER TERM, UH, GREATER IN SCOPE PROJECT THAT WOULD INVOLVE TECHSTOP SUBDIVISIONS AND, UH, NUMEROUS OTHER ENTITIES, UH, AS FOR FUNDING ON THESE IMPROVEMENTS.

I'M SORRY, AT THIS TIME, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUNDING WOULD BE FOR, FOR BRAND ROGUE, BECAUSE AGAIN, IT'S BEYOND OUR ONE PROJECT, UH, AS THE SUBDIVISIONS WERE DEVELOPED, UH, THAT THESE RESIDENTS LIVE IN, UH, FISCAL WAS POSTED FOR THEIR SIDEWALKS ALONG BRANT ROAD.

NONE OF THOSE SIDEWALKS HAD BEEN BUILT, UH, BECAUSE OF THE WAY THE POLICIES WERE DONE AT THOSE TIMES.

I'M SURE THE FISCALS HAVE PROBABLY ALREADY BEEN RETURNED.

UH, SO AGAIN, IT'S, IT'S, IT'S A, IT'S A BIGGER PROBLEM THAN WHAT THIS ONE PROJECT IS.

MANY OF THEIR CONCERNS ARE CERTAINLY VALID AND THAT CONCLUDES MY REBUTTAL.

THANK YOU.

SURE.

THAT CONCLUDES THE SPEAKERS FOR THIS ITEM.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

SO, UM, I GUESS WE SHOULD VOTE TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

IS THERE A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER KING AND I CAN BY COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF CLOSING THE PUBLIC HEARING THAT LOOKS UNANIMOUS AND WE'LL MOVE ON TO DISCUSSION.

UM, IS THERE SOMEONE THAT WANTS TO GO FIRST OR I CAN GO IN A CIRCLE MISSIONARY GREENBERG? UM, I JUST WOULD LIKE TO ASK JOHN CAN TO, UM, SHOW THE VIDEO OF THE ROAD COMMISSIONER DANCLER AND I DROVE THAT ROAD ON SUNDAY AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO DRIVE THAT BECAUSE I'VE FOUND IT SCARY.

CAN HE SHOW THAT VIDEO? I MEAN, SURE.

I WATCHED IT, BUT, AND I'M SURE IF, I DON'T KNOW, I DON'T KNOW.

HOW LONG IS IT, IS THAT CRAZY TO ASK? I'M SURE WE CAN.

I THINK IT ILLUSTRATES WHAT WE WERE EXPERIENCING.

I WOULD SUPPORT HER REQUEST.

YES, YES.

THAT'S WHAT I IS.

UM, ARE WE ABLE TO DO THAT FOR IT'S COMING UP NOW IN THE MEANTIME WHILE THEY'RE PULLING IT UP? OH, IT WAS FASTER THAN I THOUGHT.

HERE WE GO.

[00:46:39]

THIS IS A DIFFERENT VIDEO OR WE'RE JUST GOING TO WATCH THE BICYCLE.

OKAY.

UH, YEAH, THAT SHOULD PROBABLY, I THINK WE GOT IT.

YEAH.

I MEAN, I'M FROM PFLUGERVILLE.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS, BUT I KNOW WHAT A, OF COUNTRY LIVE ROAD LOOKS LIKE.

UM, SO THIS ONE HAS ASPHALT ON IT, SO IT'S NICE.

I GUESS IT'S STILL SUBSTANDARD, RIGHT? UM, OKAY.

WHO'S NEXT? YES.

COMMISSIONER, DINKLER A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS.

UM, I SAW MISS, UH, GIVEN HIS, UH, PRESENTATION, UM, THAT, UH, SCHOOL SAFETY ISSUES.

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF WENDY, YOUR, MAYBE THE NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENT ONE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENTATIVES CAN SPEAK AS TO THE SCHOOL, UH, CROWDING.

I DIDN'T PAY QUITE ENOUGH ATTENTION TO THAT.

ARE WE UNDER ENROLLED OR OVER ENROLLED IN ANY OF THE LOCAL SCHOOLS, MR. ICON, WOULD YOU BE THE BEST PERSON? DO YOU KNOW THAT MPO OR SHOULD I GO TO MS. RHODES AND THEN THAT INFORMATION? MAY I SHARE IT? UH, YES.

OKAY.

SO THE, UH, PEREZ MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR 2020 TO 2021 POPULATION IS ALREADY AT 114% CAPACITY.

THE, UH, AKINS HIGH SCHOOL POPULATION FOR 20 TO 21 POPULATION IS ALREADY AT 139% CAPACITY.

THIS WILL FURTHER INCREASE THAT AND DECREASE THE RATIOS WORSE THAN THE RATIOS AND, AND, UH, SUBJECT THE EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES, UH, TO A WORSER EXTENT.

OKAY.

RIGHT.

AND I THINK, I THOUGHT I NEEDED A BUS, BUT I'M NOT SURE I'M REMEMBERING THAT ONE OF THE SCHOOLS WOULD NEED A NEW BUS TO SERVE THE STUDENTS.

IS THAT IN THERE TO BACK UP THAT, THAT I'M NOT SURE.

UM, I BELIEVE THAT IS THE CASE THOUGH.

OKAY.

AND THEN ONE IS WINDY.

OKAY.

THAT THERE WAS AN EDUCATIONAL IMPACT STATEMENT THAT WAS PREPARED LAST WEEK, UM, FOR BLOWSIER, UM, THEY BLESS THEIR CAMPUS.

IT'S 90% OF CAPACITY.

UH, WELL IT'S BETWEEN 80, 83 AND 90% CAPACITY FOR PEREZ.

THAT'S A WEST OF 35 MIDDLE SCHOOL.

IT'S UH, BETWEEN 61 AND ONE OH 4%.

AND THEN FOR AIKEN HIGH SCHOOL, WHICH IS ACROSS, UM, ACROSS AGE 35, IT'S BETWEEN 102 AND 131%.

I KNOW YOU TOO.

AND 131%.

YES.

THERE WAS A WITH MOBILITY RATE AND THEN WITHOUT MOBILITY RATE.

GOTCHA.

[00:50:02]

AND THEN I HAD ONE OTHER QUICK QUESTION.

IT WAS FOR HOUSING.

UM, I BELIEVE IT WAS THE HOUSING CORPORATION STAFF.

UM, HOW MANY WE, WE HA WE SUBSIDIZE 11,000 UNITS.

IS, ARE WE CONCENTRATING A LOT OF OUR, UM, AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN AREAS LIKE THIS, WHERE WE'VE GOT FLOODING PROBLEMS AND SUBSTANDARD ROADS.

UM, YOU MENTIONED THAT THIS, UH, PROJECT HAD, UM, ADDITIONAL BEDROOMS AND THE LIKES.

I ALSO WASN'T CLEAR IF YOU WERE SUPPORTIVE THAT THE MF TWO OR MF FOUR.

SO, UH, LIKE TO GET YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT THE CONCENTRATION OF UNITS AND AS WELL AS, UM, UH, WHETHER YOU WERE SUPPORTING MF TWO OR MFR.

YES.

THIS IS SUZANNE WITH THE, UM, AUSTIN HOUSING AUTHORITY.

OUR PORTFOLIO IS ALL OVER AUSTIN.

IT'S NOT CONCENTRATED IN THE SOUTH.

IT'S ALL OVER NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, AND WEST.

UM, WE ARE, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF, A LOT OF OUR ACQUISITION, PROPERLY PROPERTIES ONLY HAVE ONE AND TWO BEDROOMS. THAT'S WHY WE'RE EXCITED ON THE NEW CONSTRUCTION WHERE WE CAN ACTUALLY BUILD WITH, YOU KNOW, TWO, THREE AND FOUR BEDROOMS. UM, I KNOW THAT THIS ONE IS CLOSE TO GOODNIGHT.

RANCH, BLAZER ELEMENTARY IS, IS OVER THERE.

THEY ARE, UM, LOOKING AT BUILDING A MIDDLE SCHOOL IN A HIGH SCHOOL RELATIVELY SOON, THIS PROJECT, IF IT'S BUILT, UM, IT WON'T EVEN CLOSE UNTIL NEXT YEAR, 2022, AND IT'LL TAKE TWO YEARS TO BUILD IT.

UM, SO THERE'S A LOT THAT CAN HAPPEN IN THAT TIMEFRAME, BUT, UM, WE ARE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF, OF THIS PROJECT AND OF THE UNIT COUNT.

UM, I, I DO NOT KNOW, UM, HOW THE, IF I CHANGED TO MF TWO IS MADE HOW THAT'S GOING TO AFFECT OUR UNIT COUNT.

IT'S MORE THAN LIKELY GOING TO CUT IT QUITE A BIT.

UM, WE ARE STILL SUPPORTIVE BECAUSE WE NEED AFFORDABLE UNITS AND AUSTIN, TEXAS.

UM, OBVIOUSLY I WOULD RATHER HAVE THE DESIGNATION, BUT, UM, WE DO WANT TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS, THIS PROJECT.

SO, UM, IF, IF WE HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, GO WITH AN MF TWO, WE, WE WOULD GO WITH AN MF TOO, AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS YOU HAVE.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

THIS IS, THIS IS WENDY ROSE AGAIN WITH THE ZONING STAFF AND THEY APPLICANT DID SUBMIT A CONCEPT PLAN SHOWING APPROXIMATELY ACRES THAT WERE DEVELOPABLE ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE PROPERTY, WHICH IS PART OF THE BACKUP MATERIAL.

UM, THE APPLICANT, THE TWO DOES ALLOW FOR 23 UNITS PER ACRE.

HOWEVER, WE DO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONSTRAINTS, INCLUDING THE TRIBUTARY OF ONION CREEK AND SLOPES AND FLOODPLAIN AREA THAT COULD POSE A CHALLENGE IN ACHIEVING THE APPLICANT'S PROPOSED NUMBER OF UNITS AND, AND THE DESIRED UNIT SIZE AND UNIT MIX.

SO THOSE, THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS COMMISSIONER, DECKLER WENDY, IF I CAN FOLLOW UP WITH THAT, MR. RHODES.

UM, MY QUESTION IS ABOUT THE ZONING, IF, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE OF THE, UM, THE SITE CONDITIONS, EVEN IF WE WERE TO GRANT , IT WOULD RESTRICT THE AMOUNT OF THE, IT WOULD RESTRICT THE FOOT, THE CONDITIONS WOULD RESTRICT THE FOOTPRINT, RIGHT? SO WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO, THEY WOULDN'T, THEY LIKELY WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DEVELOP ON THE EIGHT ACRES THAT THEY'VE OUTLINED IN THEIR BACKUP, RIGHT.

WE'VE SEEN THE A HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD, PLAIN, ET CETERA.

AND YOU KNOW, THE STATEMENT FROM MR. SHUNK, I THINK IS PROBABLY VALID.

SO MY QUESTION IS, I GUESS, UM, TO, YOU KNOW, WE COULD GRANT EMMA FOR ZONING AND THEN THEY WOULD BE, UM, LIMITED BY THE EXISTING CONDITIONS ON THE SITE OF WHERE THEIR FOOTPRINT COULD BE.

UM, IS THAT CORRECT? YEAH.

THAT THAT'S CORRECT THERE AND THEREFORE ALLOWS FOR A CERTAIN DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS.

HOWEVER, IT'S ALWAYS A, ONCE YOU GET TO SITE PLANNING, WE HAVE A CONCEPTUAL PLAN, BUT YOU ACTUALLY, WHEN YOU ACTUALLY GO THROUGH A SITE PLAN APPLICATION, UM, THE, IT, THE DEVELOPMENT ALL IN ALL LIKELIHOOD WANT TO BE FURTHER CONSTRAINED BY THE FLOOD, PLAIN TRIBUTARIES, CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES TREES, UH, AND PROBABLY, AND MAYBE IT SLOPES.

RIGHT? YEAH.

AND THEN MY, MY FOLLOWUP QUESTION IS ABOUT REQUIREMENTS OF TRANSPORTATION-RELATED INFRASTRUCTURE.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW, I DON'T THINK THE TCM HAS BEEN FINALIZED YET, BUT AS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE REQUIREMENTS

[00:55:01]

FOR SIDEWALK WOULD REQUIRE IT'S LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BUILD A PIPE AND END AT THE LIMITS OF THE PROPERTY, YOU WOULD BUILD A PIPE THAT CONNECTS TO THE ADJACENT WATER LINE, JUST LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BUILD A SIDEWALK THAT IS JUST THE LIMITS OF THE PROPERTY.

SO ARE WE ABLE TO REQUIRE, OR IS THAT IN THE, IN THE TCM OR OTHER, UM, MANUALS THAT THE, THAT THE CITY HAS, THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE SIDEWALK TO BE CONNECTED? IS AMBER MITCHELL OR JUSTIN GOOD IS ON THE LINE IF YOU COULD ASSIST WITH THAT QUESTION.

YEAH.

THIS IS AMBER HUTCHENS WITH THE AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT.

UM, THE CURRENT CODE REQUIRES THAT THE SIDEWALK BE BUILT ALONG THE ENTIRETY OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

UM, WHEN WE ASSESS, UM, WHAT THE FULL EXTENT OF THE MITIGATION THAT CAN BE CONSTRUCTED.

CAUSE WE ARE RECOMMENDING THAT THE ROADWAY ALONG THEIR SITE BE UPGRADED TO URBAN STANDARDS.

WHEN THEY SUBMIT THE SITE PLAN, WE CAN LOOK INTO WHAT KIND OF CONNECTIVITY WE CAN PROVIDE ON THAT ROAD, BUT IT'S REALLY GOING TO DEPEND ON WHAT THE SITE PLAN PROPOSES AND, UM, HOW WE CAN ASSESS BALANCING THEIR IMPACT ON THAT ROADWAY WITH WHAT WE CAN ASK OF THEM.

SO WE WILL DEFINITELY TRY TO CREATE A CONNECTED NETWORK, BUT IT'S GOING TO BE LIMITED BY WHAT THE UNIT COUNT ON THE SITE IS.

OKAY.

AND THEN MY OTHER UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE SMP REQUIRES THEM TO REVERT, TO PROVIDE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF RIGHT OF WAY, WHICH MEANS THEY WOULD, IF THEY WERE TO BUILD A SIDEWALK, IT WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY STEPPED BACK FROM THE EXISTING ROADWAY OR LIKE 20 FEET OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

RIGHT.

YEAH.

THERE'LL BE DEDICATING RIGHT AWAY PER THE ASN P ROADWAY PLAN.

UM, I THINK THERE'S ABOUT 66 FEET OF RIGHT AWAY.

RIGHT NOW, THE PLAN IS ASKING FOR 78 FEET.

UM, AND WE WILL HAVE IT, WE'LL HAVE THE SIDEWALK SET BACK A CERTAIN AMOUNT, NOT ONLY JUST FOR THE SIDEWALK, BUT WE'LL ALSO BE HAVING THEM CONSTRUCT BICYCLE FACILITIES IN A CURB AND GUTTER.

OKAY.

AND THEY'LL HAVE, IT'LL BE PROTECTED BY SCHOOL FACILITIES PROBABLY.

YEAH.

SO THEY WILL BE BUILT TO AUSTIN STREET DESIGN GUIDELINES.

SO THE, UM, BICYCLES, THE BICYCLE NETWORK WILL BE BEHIND THE CURB LINE.

YES.

ALL RIGHT.

WHO ELSE HAS QUESTIONS? OH, I DON'T HAVE MY HAND THING.

I'M SO SORRY.

UH, COMMISSIONER TOSTA AND THEN KING.

AND I'M GOING TO PULL UP MY HAND THING.

I'M ACTUALLY JUST GOING TO SAY THAT I THINK COMMISSIONER SMITH, BRAY AND KIELBASA HAD THEIR HAND.

OKAY.

WE'LL GO WITH SMITH FIRST.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

JUST A COUPLE OF QUICK QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

UH, JUST BECAUSE THERE'S A SITE PLAN IN THE BACK OF THAT SITE PLAN MAY SHOW DEVELOPMENT OF THE FLOODPLAIN DURING THE SITE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS, THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BUILD ANYTHING IN THE FLOODPLAIN.

IS THAT CORRECT? WE'RE NOT IN TILING.

THAT'S CORRECT.

MR. SMITH.

UM, AND SO NONE OF THEIR PROJECT DREAMT DOES THEIR PROJECT DRAIN.

THE BRYANT ROAD HAS ALL OF IT DRAINED DOWN TO ONION CREEK, ONION CREEK.

OKAY.

SO THAT WON'T BE ADDING ANY FLOW TO BRANT ROAD.

THEY WON'T BE DEVELOPING IN THE FEMA FLOOD LINE.

THEY'LL BE PROVIDING DETENTION.

I'M ASSUMING.

AND WATER QUALITY IN ACCORDANCE WITH CITY CODE.

YES, SIR.

OKAY.

UM, SO THEY WON'T BE CONTRIBUTING TO FLOOD.

THEY WON'T BE BUILDING IN THE FLOOD PLAIN AND WILL BE CONTRIBUTING FLOW TO BRENT LANE.

I, I DO HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT MF FOUR, UM, THAT IS A LOT OF DENSITY AND A LOT OF HEIGHT, MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN THAT AREA.

I'M MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE WITH MF TWO.

UM, THE ZONE INTERIM ARE, WE GOT ITS OWN THEM SOMETHING, BUT I AM AT FOUR, MAYBE A LITTLE BIT DENSE.

AND IN MY PERSPECTIVE MAY UP TO MIGHT BE MORE APPROPRIATE, BUT THAT'S JUST KIND OF WHERE I'M AT RIGHT NOW.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, I'M GOING TO GO WITH LASA NEXT BECAUSE SHE'S NEXT ON MY LIST.

OH, OKAY.

THANKS.

THIS PROJECT JUST MAKES ME JUST MAKES ME QUEASY BECAUSE I THINK THAT AFFORDABLE HOUSING SHOULD BE, SHOULD MEET THE BAR IN CERTAIN AREAS.

IN MANY AREAS, PROBABLY ALL AREAS LIKE NOT BEING ON A SUBSTANDARD ROAD.

THAT'S ACTUALLY CLASSIFIED AS A SUBSTANDARD ROAD, NOT BEING NEAR OR ADJACENT TO A BUYOUT AREA WHERE PEOPLE WERE FLOODED OUT.

AND ALSO I NOTICED THAT THOSE DRAINS, THOSE ARE THE OPEN DRAINS.

UM, THE, THE HANDLING OF THE WASTEWATER IS ALSO VERY PROBLEMATIC.

SO I, UM, IT JUST, SO I JUST WANTED, I DON'T EVEN HAVE A QUESTION.

I JUST

[01:00:01]

WANTED TO STATE THAT I THINK THAT AFFORDABLE HOUSING, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE DESERVES TO HAVE BETTER HOUSING AND A BETTER LOCATION THAN THIS MISSIONARY BRAY.

OKAY.

UH, I THOUGHT ABOUT A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FOR STAFF, UM, FORCED FOR THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING STAFF.

I THINK WE HAD SOMEONE ON THE LINE, I'M SORRY.

STARTED TO TRACK PEOPLE WHEN IT'S JUST OVER THE PHONE.

UH, BUT IN TERMS OF THE DOLLARS THAT WE HAVE FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UM, RIGHT NOW, HOW MUCH OF A BOTTLENECK IS IT FINDING SITES TO USE THAT MONEY TO BUILD SITES? MAYBE WHEN DO YOU ADDRESS THAT? BECAUSE I I'M SORRY.

I, I DON'T HAVE THE ANSWER.

I WAS GOING TO ASK IF, IF HAKA STAFF WAS ON THE LINE.

YEAH.

SORRY.

I JUST KIND OF FORGET WHO IT WAS, BUT YES, THIS IS SUZANNE WITH THE AUSTIN HOUSING AUTHORITY.

UM, WE ARE NOT USING CITY MONEY TO BUILD THIS PR THIS PROJECT.

I, MAYBE I MISUNDERSTOOD YOUR QUESTION.

SO I GUESS, I GUESS, WHAT IS IT STATE OR FEDERAL MONEY? WHAT'S THE MONEY SOURCE? WELL, THE MONEY SOURCE WOULD BE A FEDERAL TAX CREDIT FOR THE EQUITY.

UM, BUT, BUT NO CITY MONEY AND, AND, YOU KNOW, YOU, I MEAN, THERE IS A LIMITED AMOUNT.

UM, BUT WITH THE, THE PROGRAM THAT WE'RE GOING IN, IT'S KIND OF A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.

UM, BUT YOU KNOW, THE, THE PROJECT HAS TO PENCIL OUT.

SO, YOU KNOW, AS FAR AS WHERE YOU BUILD, UM, LAND PRICES HAVE, HAVE, UH, A LOT TO DO WITH WHERE YOU BUILD, UM, I WOULD REALLY HAVE TO HAVE THE DEVELOPER WEIGH IN ON THIS IF WE WANT TO GET ANY DEEPER THAN THAT.

UM, BUT, UM, YEAH, AS FAR AS SITTING MONEY, WE'RE, WE'RE DEFINITELY NOT USING ANY CITY MONEY.

OKAY.

UM, I WANT TO, IT'S STILL, UM, FOLLOWING UP ON THAT, IS THERE LIKE, IS THERE A POOL IS LIKE DONE FOR THAT FEDERAL MONEY? IS THAT LIKE A POOL THAT GOES TO AUSTIN? IS IT JUST KIND OF LIKE, HOW, HOW IS THAT LIKE ANY FIRST COMFORT, LIKE NATIONALLY STATE LEVEL LOCAL? YEAH.

THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY AFFAIRS ACTUALLY DISTRIBUTES THAT, UM, THE, THE, AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, THEY DISTRIBUTED TO THE STATES AND THEN THE STATES SPLIT IT UP BETWEEN THE, THE, UM, CITIES.

SO THERE IS, THERE IS AN AMOUNT FOR THE CITY.

SO, UM, IS HAVE WE, UM, BEEN ABLE TO FIND ENOUGH SITES TO THAT NEED, UH, OR, YOU KNOW, TO USE THAT MONEY THAT'S AVAILABLE.

UH, AND I GUESS WHAT I'M KIND OF GETTING AT HERE IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHERE WE PUT HOUSING AND I'M KIND OF TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IS LIKE, IS, IS THE NUMBER OF SITES THE BOTTLENECK, OR IS IT THE AMOUNT OF MONEY AVAILABLE? BECAUSE I THINK FOR TALKING ABOUT LIKE, WHERE WE THINK THIS KIND OF HOUSING SHOULD GO, IF WE'RE LIMITED IN THE NUMBER OF HEIGHTS SITES AND, YOU KNOW, THIS HAPPENS TO BE A VERY VIABLE SITE THAT WE HAVE VERY RARELY, I THINK THAT'S DIFFERENT THAN IF WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, LOTS OF SENSE AVAILABLE, BUT LESS MONEY THAN WE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.

I THINK IT'S MORE OF A, UM, A SITE BASED THING.

LIKE I SAID, IF YOU, IF YOU WANT TO GO FAR WEST, YOU KNOW, THE LAND PRICES ARE VERY EXPENSIVE, SO YOU'RE MORE THAN LIKELY NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO, TO GET THE DEVELOPMENT TO PENCIL OUT.

UM, WE'VE, WE'VE HAD ENOUGH, UM, ENOUGH CAPACITY IN THE FEDERAL FUNDING TO BE ABLE TO, TO DO THE SITES THAT, THAT WE HAVE FOUND AND HAVE, YOU KNOW, AVAILABLE.

UH, BUT IT'S MORE OF, IT'S EXPENSIVE TO DEVELOP A PROPERTY IN AUSTIN, TEXAS.

OKAY.

AND THAT'S A REALLY IMPORTANT POINT TO ME, UH, BECAUSE WHAT I'M MY INTERPRETATION OF THAT IS THAT IF WE DON'T BUILD THIS HERE, IT IS NOT GETTING THOSE IN AUSTIN.

AND THAT 200 FAMILIES THAT AT THIS INCOME LEVEL, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT 60% OF MY FI UH, WE WERE TALKING PREVIOUS MEETINGS.

WE, YOU KNOW, 80% OF THAT FIVE, 10% OF THE UNITS, THIS IS 60% MFI FOR A HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE UNITS WITH A VERY LARGE PROPORTION OF MULTI BEDROOM HOUSING.

SO IT'S A VERY INCREDIBLE TO ME, LIKE VERY IMPORTANT TYPE OF HOUSING AND NOT SOMETHING TO PASS UP LIGHTLY AT ALL.

UM, YOU KNOW, IT'S BASICALLY,

[01:05:01]

YOU KNOW, WE'RE, WE'RE THE, THE EXCHANGE WE'RE MAKING CARE, I GUESS ALL THE OTHER CONCERNS IS 200 FAMILIES HAVING A CHANCE TO LIVE IN THIS IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN, UM, BECAUSE THEY WILL DO, WE WILL NOT REALLY GET THAT HOUSING ELSEWHERE IS MY INTERPRETATION OF THIS, ESPECIALLY WITH AUSTIN'S HOUSING MARKET AS IT'S GOING.

UM, SO I DON'T FEEL LIKE THEY GOT ENOUGH ATTENTION AND MAYBE THE TESTIMONY AND DISCUSSION SO FAR.

SO I JUST REALLY WANTED TO, UM, I LIKED THAT, UH, I ALSO HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION STAFF.

UM, WHAT IS THE, ARE THERE LIMITATIONS ON BEING, SO WE'VE SEEN A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH VISIBILITY.

UH, WHAT ARE THE LIMITATIONS, AS FAR AS WHERE THE ALONG THE ROAD THAT WOULD MAKE IT HARD OR MAKE IT, IS IT, WOULD WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO LIKE EXPAND THE ROADWAY TO IMPROVE THE CONDITIONS ON THE ROAD? IT'S EASIEST IF THE MONEY, YOU KNOW, ASSUMING WE HAVE THE MONEY, IS THERE, IS THERE SOMETHING THAT CAN HAPPEN BASED ON THE CURRENT,
