AND, UM, I HAVE CHECKED INTO MY, I JUST WANT TO DO A TECHNICAL THING RIGHT NOW.

I SEE THAT I'M CHECKED IN ON THERE, BUT I DO, I NEED TO BE OR K.

SO I WILL ACTUALLY, UM, WHILE, WHILE WE'RE GOING THROUGH ACTUALLY ON THE FIRST MOTION.

SO THE FIRST CASE THAT WE'RE GOING TO HEAR TONIGHT

[B.3. Rezoning: C14-2021-0012 - Research Park Rezoning; District 6]

IS B3.

AND LET'S FIRST HEAR FROM THE CASE MANAGER AND IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU SHERRY.

GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS SHERRY SIR, IS WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

IT'S REALLY GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL AGAIN IN PERSON.

THIS IS ITEM B3, WHICH IS CASEY 14, 20 21 0 0 1 2 RESEARCH PARK REZONING.

IT'S LOCATED AT 1, 2, 4 5 5 1 2 5 0 1 RESEARCH BOULEVARD, 1, 2, 4 8 9 1 2 5 1 5 AND A HALF, ONE TO 5, 1 7 AND A HALF RESEARCH BOULEVARD.

AND ONE TO TWO TO ZERO AND A HALF ROW RIATA TRACE PARKWAY.

THE REQUEST IS FROM LA TO LAPD A ZONING.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO ADD A PLAN DEVELOPMENT ERA AREA OVERLAY WITH THE CONDITIONS THAT ARE PROPOSED AS PDA STANDARDS AND EXHIBIT C IN YOUR BACKUP MATERIAL.

THE STAFF RECOMMENDS LAPD LIMITED INDUSTRIAL PLAN DEVELOPMENT AREA.

COMBINING DISTRICT ZONING FOR THIS PROPERTY.

THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION IS 179 PLUS ACRE TRACT OF LAND THAT ACCESSES ONTO MCNEIL DRIVE AND ONTO THE FRONTAGE ROAD OF RESEARCH BOULEVARD OR U S HIGHWAY 180 3 NORTHBOUND.

THE PROPERTY IS DEVELOPED WITH OFFICE WAREHOUSE AND MANUFACTURING USES THIS SPECIFIC AREA IN LOT 11, WHICH IS APPROXIMATELY 31 ACRES OF THE SITE APPEARS TO CONTAIN AN ELECTRIC SWITCH SWITCHING STATION, A VACANT PARKING STRUCTURE AND UNDEVELOPED LAND.

THE LOTS TO THE NORTH ARE DEVELOPED WITH SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL USES AND A DETENTION POND TO THE EAST.

THERE'S MULTIFAMILY USE A SMALL RETAIL CENTER AND OFFICE USES THE PROPERTY.

THE SOUTH FRONTING RESEARCH BOULEVARD IS DEVELOPED WITH AN OFFICE BUILDINGS TO THE WEST ACROSS MCNEIL DRIVE.

THERE IS A DAYCARE USE OR RETAIL USE OFFICES AND A CONVENIENT STORAGE USE AND AN AUTOMATIC WASHING BUSINESS.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO ADD A PLAN DEVELOPMENT AREA, PDA COMBINING DISTRICT TO THE EXISTING LA-BASED BASED DISTRICT TO RETAIN THE OFFICE AND INDUSTRIAL AND WAREHOUSE USES AND ADD A 350 UNIT MULTI-FAMILY USE ON LOT 11 ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING L I P D A ZONING AS THE PROPERTY MEETS THE INTENT OF THE LIMITED INDUSTRIAL PLAN DEVELOPMENT AREA DISTRICT.

THE ZONING WOULD BE COMPATIBLE AND CONSISTENT WITH THE SURROUNDING USES BECAUSE THERE ARE COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL USES LOCATED TO THE NORTH, SOUTH AND WEST AND MULTIFAMILY.

RESIDENTIAL USES AND COMMERCIAL USES TO THE EAST

[00:10:01]

LAPD.

A ZONING WOULD ALLOW THE SITE TO BE REDEVELOPED WITH A MIXTURE OF HIGH DENSITY.

RESIDENTIAL OFFICE COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL USES.

THIS LOCATION IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE PROPOSED MIXTURE OF USES BECAUSE THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION IS NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF A MAJOR ARTERIAL ROADWAY, MCNEIL ROAD, AND A HIGHWAY RESEARCH BOULEVARD OR US HIGHWAY 180 3.

THE PROPERTY IS WITHIN 800 FEET OF THE JOLLYVILLE ACTIVITY CORRIDOR AND IS NEAR THE 180 3 MCNEIL NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER.

THE ADDITION OF MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL USES THROUGH THE PROPOSED PLAN DEVELOPMENT AREA WILL PROVIDE ADDITIONAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES IN THIS AREA OF THE CITY.

AND THE STAFF IS IN AGREEMENT OR THE APPLICANT IS IN AGREEMENT WITH THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION.

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

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND NOW WE'LL HEAR FROM THE APPLICANT AND THAT IS RICHARD SUTTLE OR THE APPLICANT'S AGENT.

I AM CHAIR MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION, BOTH HERE AND VIRTUALLY.

UH, MY NAME IS RICHARD SUTTLE.

I'M HERE ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT.

I'LL DO AN ABBREVIATED PRESENTATION BECAUSE THIS IS A CASE WHILE IT'S GOT A THICK UP MATERIAL AND LOTS OF, UH, STUFF WITH IT.

IT'S VERY SIMPLE.

IT'S BASICALLY 179 ACRES OF PROPERTY.

THAT'S ZONED ALLY FOR INDUSTRIAL.

AND WHAT WE'D LIKE TO DO IS TAKE LOT 11, WHICH IS ABOUT 30 ACRES OF IT AND ADD AN ADDITIONAL USE OF MULTIFAMILY AND SUBTRACT SOME OF THE LIU USES.

AND THAT IS LITERALLY THE ENTIRE CASE.

SO I'LL RESERVE A TIME FOR QUESTIONS.

IF Y'ALL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME NOW, THAT'D BE GREAT IN THE INTEREST OF TIME.

AND I KNOW THE NEIGHBORS HAVE A LOT OF INFORMATION FOR YOU.

I'LL SIT DOWN, BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND, UH, RESERVE FOR REBUTTAL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

SEE WHAT REBUTTAL? AND THEN I BELIEVE THE, IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE WISHING TO SPEAK IN FAVOR AND I DON'T SEE ANYBODY SIGNED UP, BUT JUST CHECKING THEN I'M SPEAKING IN OPPOSITION, THE FIRST PERSON AND THE PRIMARY SPEAKER IS JANET BROOKS.

AND I BELIEVE I'M NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE DONATED TIME.

OKAY.

SO THAT MEANS 10 MINUTES, EIGHT, NINE MINUTES.

OKAY.

THANKS.

OKAY.

YOU'LL HAVE NINE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

OH, I'M SORRY.

SO GOOD EVENING.

COMMISSIONERS CHAIR.

MY NAME IS JANET BROOKS.

I HAVE LIVED IN MILLWOOD SECTION THE MICROPHONE.

YEAH, WE CAN'T HEAR YOU, BUT BRING IT CLOSER OR OKAY.

LET ME START OVER.

IS THIS BETTER? YEAH.

OKAY.

THAT BETTER? OKAY.

SO WE'RE STARTING MY TIME OVER.

OKAY.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

OKAY.

SO, UH, WE'RE SAYING GOOD EVENING TO ALL THE COMMISSIONERS IN THE CHAIR.

UH, MY NAME IS JANET BROOKS.

I'VE LIVED IN THE MILL WITH SECTION 12 NEIGHBORHOOD FOR 34 YEARS.

I LIVE AT 63 13 AVERY ISLAND AND MY HOUSE IS IMMEDIATELY ADJACENT THROUGH THE BACKYARD IN BEDROOMS THAT ARE ALONG THE BACK OF THE HOUSE TO, UM, THE EASEMENT IN THE BOUNDARY WITH THE PROPOSED PDA AND LOT 11.

AND, UH, SO, UH, CAN WE DO THAT FIRST SLIDE? OKAY.

BACK ONE.

THERE WE GO.

OKAY.

UH, IT MAY BE KIND OF DIFFICULT FOR Y'ALL TO SEE.

UH, WE, UM, DON'T FEEL THAT THIS, UH, PDA DISTRICT IS NECESSARY.

THERE'S ALREADY LIGHT INDUSTRIAL APPROVED FOR, UH, THIS SITE.

AND WE DON'T FEEL THAT, UH, IT'S JUSTIFIED BECAUSE THE BOUNDARIES, UH, AND I'M DOING GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARY, GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARY TO THE EAST IS MILLWOOD SECTION 12, AND ABOUT 200 HOMES IN THAT AREA.

AND THE GEOGRAPHICAL SOUTH BOUNDARY IS, UH, A CLUMP, SOME TREE BUFFERS AND ARROW WOOD APARTMENTS, UH, MULTIFAMILY.

AND SO WE FELT LIKE THOSE TWO SIDES PARTICULARLY ARE COVERED WITH, UH, FAMILIES AND RESIDENTIAL.

UM, UH, ALONG MCNEIL, THERE ARE A FEW BUSINESSES, BUT THEY HAVE, UM, SPACES BETWEEN MEN TREES.

AND IT'S JUST LIKE FOR MOST OF THEM, ONE LOT DEEP, IT'S THE KIND OF NEIGHBORHOOD THINGS LIKE YOU NEED A DAYCARE, THAT KIND OF THING.

UH, THE

[00:15:01]

ONLY BIG ONE THAT'S, THERE IS A CARWASH AND IT'S, BUT THERE'S LOTS OF FEEDER STREETS COMING IN TO MCNEIL, UH, ON BOTH SIDES FROM NEIGHBORHOODS.

AND THE ONE THAT YOU CAN'T SEE IN THIS PICTURE, BUT YOU'LL SEE IN THE NEXT ONE, IF WE CAN GO TO IT IS, UM, THE FIRST PICTURE, THAT WHOLE DEVELOPMENT THAT'S IN THE TOP TWO THIRDS THAT IS RETAINED CREEK, WHICH IS A HUGE, UM, NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND THEY'RE JUST OFF THE LITTLE SIDE STREETS THAT FEED OFF OF MCNEIL.

AND IF YOU LOOK AT THAT, THAT RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD, OURS, WHICH IS RIGHT BEHIND RESEARCH PARK, AND THEN THE BIG ONE THAT'S IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT-HAND CORNER THAT IS ARROW AND EVEN ARROW, IT IS LIKE WAY LARGER THAN RESEARCH PARK.

SO WE FEEL LIKE THERE'S, THIS IS MAINLY A NEIGHBORHOOD AREA WITH A FEW BUSINESSES THAT SUPPORT IT.

IF YOU GO DOWN TO, UM, UH, ON NO TWO, WE'RE GOING TO NEED THREE SERVICE ROAD, THERE'S NO COMMERCIAL STUFF THERE.

UH, YOU SEE SOME LANDSCAPING AND THEN YOU JUST SEE THE SEAMONT SUPPORTS FOR 180 3.

IF YOU GO TO, UM, TECHNOLOGY, WHICH IS IN THE BOTTOM PICTURES, TWO PICTURES, YOU DO FIND A STRIP OF ONE STORY BUILDINGS, UH, THAT ARE OFFICES AND OTHER KINDS OF BUSINESSES AND THEIR SETBACK FROM THE STREET.

AND THEY'RE ONLY ONE STORY HIGH AND IN THE BIG PICTURE, IN THE BOTTOM, RIGHT, THERE'S A BIG BUILDING BLOCK, MIND THAT ONE STORY BUILDING AND THAT BIG BUILDING IS A FOUR STORY BUILDING UNRESEARCHED PART.

SO IN OUR OPINION, IT'S ALREADY HAS A COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT IT'S RESEARCH PARK, BUT TO SAY THAT THE REST OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, THAT'S MAINLY FAMILY ORIENTED AND HOUSING AND A FEW BUSINESSES THAT SUPPORT THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THESE, YOU KNOW, ONE STORY BUILDINGS AREN'T REALLY LIKE BIG COMMERCIAL AREAS AND THEY DON'T REALLY JUSTIFY HAVING A BIG PDA THERE WHEN THEY ALREADY HAVE LIGHT INDUSTRIAL ZONING.

UH, IF YOU'LL GO TO THAT NEXT SLIDE, UH, JUST TO KIND OF SHOW YOU WHAT OUR NEIGHBORHOOD LOOKS LIKE REALLY FAST.

WE HAVE HERITAGE OAKS WHERE A SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD OF 200 HOMES.

PLUS, UH, WE HAVE WHITE, UH, ONE LONG WIDE AVENUE AND LOTS OF WINDING STREETS CO'S AND, UH, WE'RE KIND OF A LITTLE DIVERSE NEIGHBORHOOD.

UH, PROBABLY ONE OF THE, NOT AS AFFORDABLE AS IT USED TO BE, BUT YOU KNOW, NOT AS EXPENSIVE AS SOME OTHER NORTHWEST NEIGHBORHOODS.

SO IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, UH, AS YOU GO DOWN THE BIG AVENUE AND YOU GET ABOUT HALFWAY DOWN, IT YOU'LL COME TO A WALNUT CREEK WATERSHED, WHICH HAS A NATURAL DRAINAGE DITCH THAT GOES UNDER OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND, UH, YOU'LL SEE ON THE LEFT, THAT IS THE RAILING WE ARE ON THE BRIDGE.

AND BECAUSE OF ALL THE RAINS IT'S, UH, HAS A LOT OF VEGETATION THAT'S GROWING REALLY TALL AND BLOCKING WHERE THE DRAINAGE IS SUPPOSED TO GO.

AND IF YOU MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ONE, I THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE ANGIE AND SHE WANTS TO PLAY THE VIDEO.

UH, SHE'S GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT TRAFFIC.

UH, DO I STILL HAVE TIME LEFT THAT I NEED TO USE? HOW DOES THIS WORK OR DOES IT JANET? DO, DO I FINISH MY MINUTES? YES.

OKAY.

OKAY.

I'M GOING TO SKIP TRAFFIC SO SHE CAN COME BACK AND DO IT.

OKAY.

WE'RE DOING IT.

OKAY.

I'M SORRY.

WE HAVEN'T DONE THIS BEFORE.

CAN YOU TELL, UM, SO IN THIS SLIDE, WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO SHOW YOU WITH THAT RED LINE THAT'S PERPENDICULAR AND GOES DOWN THAT SIDE THAT IS NEAR THE EASEMENT, THAT THE BACKS OF OUR HOMES ON AVERY ISLAND AND JENNINGS HAVE WITH RESEARCH PARK.

AND, UH, WE DON'T HAVE MUCH OF A TREE BUFFER BACK THERE.

IT'S KIND OF SCRAGGLY.

IT HAS LOTS OF SPACES.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS WE'LL BE TALKING ABOUT IF WE GET TO THAT POINT IS HAVING, UH, YOU KNOW, CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS THAT COVER THAT.

BUT I WANT TO STEP ASIDE FOR A MINUTE BECAUSE WE ARE EXTREMELY CONCERNED.

[00:22:12]

I USE THE MIC OR STAND UP.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN THE NEXT PERSON, IF YOU COULD INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

YES, GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS ANGELICA NETTLE.

I LIVE AT 63, 25 AVERY ISLAND AVENUE.

I'M OPPOSED TO THE REZONING OF RESEARCH PARK BECAUSE MY BACKYARD IS DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE CITY EASEMENT OF ABOUT 15 FEET.

UM, THERE'S A CHAIN LINK FENCE.

AND THEN THERE IS RESEARCH PARK, LOT 11 DIRECTLY ADJACENT.

I HAVE LIVED IN MY HOME TWO MONTHS SHY OF 10 YEARS.

THIS IS A NEIGHBORHOOD OF MODEST HOMES, PERFECTLY SUITED TO FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS AND TO THOSE SENIORS WHO DESIRE TO AGE IN PLACE.

MOST OF US ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO MOVE AWAY.

IF THE DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH PARK INTERFERES WITH OUR QUALITY OF LIFE, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO, AT THIS TIME PUBLICLY, THANK THE DEVELOPERS REPRESENTATIVES FOR MEETING WITH US TWICE FOR SHARING PLANS, MAPS DOCUMENTS FOR GIVING US A TOUR OF THE BUILDING SITE.

AND FOR LISTENING TO OUR INPUT, THE TRAFFIC IS CURRENTLY SO HEAVY ON MCNEIL ROAD, THAT IT IS EVEN DIFFICULT TO MAKE A RIGHT HAND TURN OUT OF AVERY ISLAND TO GO EAST AND AVERY ISLAND IS ONE OF THE MAIN FEEDER ROADS IN OUR OLD MILLWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD, INCREASED FROM DEVELOPMENTS WILL BE DANGEROUS.

YOU CAN PLAY THIS SLIDE, PLEASE.

IT, THIS WAS JUST THE OTHER DAY, NOT DURING RUSH HOUR.

THIS WAS DURING THE WEEKEND AND IT TOOK FOUR MINUTES AND WE WON'T PLAY THE WHOLE THING, BUT FOUR MINUTES TO MAKE A LEFT-HAND TURN OUT OF THE DEAL.

SO WE ARE ASKING FOR CONDITIONAL TRAFFIC OVERLAYS AND IMMEDIATE FULL TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS ALONG NEIL DRIVE FROM CORPUS CHRISTI DRIVE TO OAK KNOLL, FULL TRAFFIC LIGHT AT OAK KNOLL AND MCNEIL DRIVE.

NO TURN ON NO RIGHT TURN ON RED AT OAK KNOLL FOR TRAFFIC HEADING EAST ALONG MCNEILL DRIVE, WE WOULD LIKE TO LIMIT THE ENTIRE RESEARCH PARK TO 10,000 TOTAL TRIPS PER DAY OR LESS.

WE'D LIKE TO REMOVE AND PREVENT IMPEDIMENTS TO TRAFFIC SIGHT LINES AT THE NEIGHBORHOOD FEEDER ROADS, EVENTUALLY A TRAFFIC LIGHT AT AVERY ISLAND AVENUE AND NEIL DRIVE WILL BE NEEDED.

AND TRAFFIC SIGNALS NEED TO BE ADJUSTED TO ALLOW MORE TIME

[00:25:01]

FOR MOTORISTS TO ENTER AN EXIT FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD FEEDER ROADS.

AND WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A MORATORIUM ON MULTIFAMILY PROJECTS UNTIL THIS IS COMPLETED.

WE ALSO, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO US TO HAVE A CONDITIONAL OVERLAY OF A 200 FOOT EIGHT, EIGHT FOOT TALL DENSE, AND CONTINUOUS TREE BUFFER ON THE RESEARCH PARK PROPERTY, ALONG LOT 11 THE FLAG LOT AND BEHIND OUR HOMES.

AND WE WOULD LIKE IT TO BE 500 FEET IN WIDTH.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE WHO IS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK AND I DON'T SEE ANYBODY ON MY LIST HERE.

SO HAS ANYBODY SIGNED UP? OKAY.

OH, CAROLYN GETTING OKAY.

IF YOU DONATE, IF YOU DONATED TIME, THEN YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK.

THAT'S OKAY.

WE GOT IT.

AWESOME.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN NO OTHER PEOPLE WHO DID NOT DONATE TIME.

OKAY.

THEN WE WILL GO BACK TO THE APPLICANT FOR HIS REBUTTAL AND THANK YOU ALL NEIGHBORS FOR SHOWING UP AND THANK YOU FOR MEETING WITH US TOO.

UM, ANDREW, I DON'T KNOW, ARE ABLE TO PULL UP A PRESENTATION THIS LATE IN THE GAME SO I CAN RUN THROUGH TO SHOW THE MATERIALS THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE.

HE'S ON ANDOVER, UNFORTUNATELY.

YEAH, I'LL GO ACROSS THE HALL.

OKAY.

THAT'S FINE.

I'VE GOT SOME SLIDES THAT GIVE AN OVERALL, IF WE NEED TO GET INTO IT DURING QUESTION AND ANSWER, IT SHOWS THAT THE ENTIRE SIDE IS ALREADY ZONED ALLY, AND WE'RE JUST, WE'RE DONE.

WE'RE DONE THE PDA OVERLAY REQUEST TO ALLOW SOME FLEXIBILITY AND TO ALLOW THE ADDITION OF THE RESIDENTIAL ON, ON LOT 11.

UM, IT'S ACTUALLY A DOWNER ZONING WHEN YOU REALLY LOOK AT IT BECAUSE THE USES THAT WE'VE AGREED TO DELETE OUR USES THAT YOU COULD DO TODAY, BUT WE'RE AGREEING TO TAKE THOSE OFF ON A LOT.

11, YOU WILL ALSO GET A SECOND LOOK AT THIS.

WHEN WE BRING THE REMAINDER OF THE PDA INTO YOU, W WE DIDN'T BRING A BUNCH OF SPLIT SPECULATIVE ZONING IN ON THE REST OF THE 1 79, BECAUSE WE'RE FRANKLY NOT READY, BUT ON, ON LOT 11, WE KNOW THAT THAT SETS ITSELF UP NICELY TO DO A MULTIFAMILY TRACK WITH THE PARK NEXT DOOR.

SO WITH THAT, UM, I'LL, I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

AND IF WE NEED TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT THE PRESENTATION MATERIALS, WE'VE GOT SOME MAPS THAT SHOW HOW THIS LAYS OUT.

ONE, ONE MORE THING.

UM, CURRENTLY ON THIS SITE, THERE'S A, UH, ELECTRIC SUBSTATION AND A TWO-STORY PARKING GARAGE.

IT WAS ACTUALLY PART OF AN OFFICE BUILDING THAT WAS APPROVED FOR THE SITE.

AND, UM, NOW WE'RE DOING LESS DENSE BY DOING THE, UH, LOW DENSITY.

MULTI-FAMILY, I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, THAT, IS IT, DO WE WANT TO HAVE A VOTE TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING? YES.

UM, W WHAT WE DO, YEAH.

WE'LL HAVE A VOTE TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, AND THEN WE CAN ASK QUESTIONS.

SO IS THERE A VOTE, IS THERE A MOTION, MAKE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING? OKAY.

A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER SMITH AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER ACOSTA.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HANDS.

AND I'M LOOKING AT YOU ALL ON SCREEN COMMISSIONING.

OKAY, GREAT.

OKAY.

UNANIMOUS.

OKAY.

AND WHAT, THE WAY I WAS GOING TO DO IT FOR THIS, WITH THIS HYBRID MEETING IS I WAS GOING TO START FROM THE DIET, UM, TO MY LEFT AND THEN ALTERNATE DYESS ON, ON THE SCREEN DYESS ON THE SCREEN AND JUST DO IT IN THAT ORDER.

SO UNLESS ANYBODY HAS JUST REALLY WANTS TO BE FIRST, BUT I WOULD JUST CON COMMISSIONER KOSTA.

IF THAT, IF THAT WORKS FOR YOU.

AND IF NOT, I MEAN, TIM, UM, COMMISSIONER BRAY SEEMED EAGER, BUT I'LL GO TO COMMISSIONER KOSTA, AND THEN I WILL GO TO PULL UP THERE AND I'M GOING TO TURN OFF MY MIC.

THIS IS GOING TO TAKE SOME GETTING USED TO, UM, YEAH, I JUST HAD A QUESTION FOR THE APPLICANTS.

SO FIRST I BELIEVE THERE'S 350 UNITS PROPOSED IN THE PDA.

AND I JUST WANT TO CONFIRM IF THAT'S CORRECT.

AND

[00:30:01]

THEN FOR THE PRESENTATION FROM THE APPLICANTS, THEY MENTIONED THAT THERE WAS SOME SINKHOLES AND WE'RE JUST RUNNING.

IF IN YOUR SURVEYING, IF YOU HAD ADDRESSED THOSE OR I'D COME ACROSS ISSUES WITH DEVELOPING AROUND THEM.

SO I'M OLD AND HARD OF HEARING, BUT I THINK I GOT, LET ME SEE IF I ANSWER IT AND SEE MY ANSWER.

THERE ARE CAVES AND SINKHOLES.

THEY ARE MAPPED.

WE HAVE, UH, SETBACKS BACK FROM WHEN THIS AND THE CITY ACTUALLY HAS EASEMENTS AROUND THEM.

AND WE ARE, UH, CITING.

WE ACTUALLY HAVE A SITE PLAN IN REVIEW NOW THAT IS PLACED TO WHERE IT'S NOT IMPACTING THE SINKHOLES IN THE CAVES.

AND THE ANSWER IS YES.

THE 350 UNITS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN I'LL, WE'LL GO TO, UM, I SEE COMMISSIONER GREENBERG FIRST, CHRIS COMMISSIONER GREENBERG.

DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION? UM, YES, I HAVE, UH, QUESTIONS.

MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT YOU'RE WILLING TO CHANGE THE TWO TO ONE FAR ON LOT 11 TO ONE TO ONE, AND ALSO, UH, THERE'S SIX OR SEVEN ADDITIONAL, UM, INDUSTRIAL USES THAT YOU'RE WILLING TO EXCLUDE.

UM, THOSE, MY UNDERSTANDING ARE BASIC INDUSTRY, CUSTOM MANUFACTURING, GENERAL WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION, LIGHT MANUFACTURING, LIMITED WAREHOUSING AND DISTRIBUTION, RECYCLING CENTER AND RESOURCE EXTRACTION.

ARE YOU OKAY WITH, UM, YOU DID AGREE TO REMOVE THOSE OR EXCLUDE THOSE USES? YES, MA'AM THEY'RE PERMITTED TODAY, BUT WE WERE WILLING TO EXCLUDE THOSE.

AND IN THE, UM, BACKUP, THERE'S SOME TALK ABOUT HAVING THE, UM, WELL, THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMENTS WERE THAT THERE SHOULD BE NO, UM, CHANGE TO ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS.

NO.

GRANDFATHERING.

IS THAT YOUR UNDERSTANDING AS WELL? THAT'S CORRECT.

WE ARE CURRENT CODE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, THAT'S ALL THE QUESTIONS I THINK I HAVE.

OKAY.

I'LL GO TO CON OKAY.

YEAH.

COMMISSIONER GREENBERG.

COULD YOU GO OVER THE EXCLUDED ITEMS ORG OR THE APPLICANT CAN GO OVER THE EXCLUDED ITEMS? TAKE YOUR PICK.

YES.

WELL, I THINK THERE'S SOME ADDITIONAL ONES TOO.

I THINK THERE ARE SOME COMMISSIONERS THAT HAD SOME ADDITIONAL ONES THAT WANTED TO BE ADDED AS WELL.

AND WE CAN DO AT THE END, WE COULD DO A CUMULATIVE LIST, BUT THERE'S, THERE'S MANY THERE'S MANY THAT WE CAN PRECLUDE.

OKAY.

THEN I'LL GO TO COMMISSIONER DANGLER WITH A QUESTION AND THEN, UM, AND THEN WE'LL GO OVER.

EVERYTHING THAT'S EXCLUDED ON IS ANYBODY KEEPING TRACK OF OUR EXCLUDED ITEMS? THAT WOULD BE GOOD.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER SMITH IS TRYING TO DO THAT, SO, OKAY THEN COMMISSIONER DANGLER, UM, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP ON THIS.

I WAS A LITTLE CONFUSED BY THE EXHIBIT A THAT WAS IN THE BACKUP THINKING.

OKAY.

WE'RE ADDING USES ELSEWHERE ON THE ALLY.

UM, YOU INDICATED ON THE 30 ACRES THAT YOU WERE PROBABLY ONLY GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO HOW MUCH FOR, UH, THE APARTMENTS AND THEN HOW MUCH WOULD BE ENDED UP BEING DEDICATED FOR PARK.

SO WHAT WE'LL DO IS WE'LL COME BACK LOT.

11 IS ABOUT 30 ACRES.

WE'LL COME IN AND REPLAT AND DO THE APARTMENTS ON ABOUT 13.

THE REMAINDER WOULD BE, UM, EXISTING USES IN THE PARKLAND AND WHAT WE'RE, WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO, WHAT YOU'LL FIND.

IF YOU RAN THE NUMBERS, YOU WILL FIND THAT WE'RE DOING A BIGGER PARK THAN WHAT WOULD BE REQUIRED FOR 350 ACRES.

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO ATTEMPT TO DO AS WE GO THROUGH THE PROCESS IS HAVE A PARK BANK, BECAUSE THERE MAY COME A TIME ON THE OTHER ONE 70, THE REMAINDER OF THE 179 ACRES THAT WE MIGHT DO MORE RESIDENTIAL AND LIKE TO GET CREDIT FOR THE ADDITIONAL PARKLAND ON LOT 11.

WERE YOU PLANNING ON CREDITING ANY EMBARK TRANSFERS ON, UM, PERVIOUS AND IMPERVIOUS COVER WATER QUALITY? NO, BECAUSE WE HAVE AN INTERESTING SITUATION.

WE HAVE TWO WATERSHEDS AND I THINK ETHIC CAN PROBABLY MAKE SURE I SAY THIS RIGHT.

WE CAN'T MOVE IMPERVIOUS COVER AND DO TRANSFERS BETWEEN WATERSHEDS.

SO WE'RE, WE'RE KEEPING THOSE SEPARATE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

BENKLER AND NOW WE'LL GO TO COMMISSIONER.

RAY, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? AND IS THAT A YES OR A NO, I SEE A SMALL LITTLE FACE.

YEAH.

[00:35:01]

UM, SO WE'VE HAD A LOT OF PROCESS RELATED DISCUSSION RECENTLY, SO I JUST WANTED, THIS IS FOR STAFF.

UM, CAN YOU EXPLAIN HOW THE TCEQ IS OR VIEW INTERACTS WITH THE CITY'S REVIEW IN THIS CASE? UH, GOOD EVENING.

I AM EIGHTH OF PHYLLIS WITH WATERSHED PROTECTION.

UH, THE TWO REVIEWS ACTUALLY DON'T INTERSECT AT ALL.

THERE ARE STATE REQUIREMENTS AND THERE ARE CITY REQUIREMENTS AND WE DON'T TRACK EACH OTHER'S PROGRESS ON ANY OF THOSE REGULATIONS.

YEAH.

OKAY.

THANKS.

AND I CAN MAKE ONE COMMENT ON THAT.

THEY'RE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE, SO WE WILL HAVE TO MEET BOTH TCEQ AND THE CITY REQUIREMENTS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THEN I WILL GO TO COMMISSIONER BRAY.

YEAH.

UH, WHAT'S THE TIMELINE FOR THE APPLICANT? WHAT WAS THE TIMELINE FOR, UH, YOU KNOW, I KNOW IT WAS PROBABLY, YOU KNOW, NOT COMPLETELY KNOW THIS YET, BUT LIKE, WHAT'S THE ROUGH TIMELINE FOR LIKE, WHEN YOU WOULD BRING THE NEW PUD? UM, YOU KNOW, WHEN, WHEN YOU PLAN ON TRYING TO BRING THE NEW PUTT PUTT FOR THE REST OF THE PROPERTY? WELL, WELL, UH, I GOTTA MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE RECORD STRAIGHT.

IT'S NOT A PUTT, IT'S A PDA WE'LL, WE'LL PROBABLY, IT'S, IT'S HARD TO SAY, BUT I WOULD GUESS A YEAR IT WOULD BE AT WE'LL GET THE, THE PLANNING COULD BE SOONER, COULD BE LATER.

UM, WE'RE DOING THE PLANNING NOW.

AND THE INVENTORY ON IT IS, IS IN, IS MOSTLY LIKE THE PROPERTY CURRENTLY IN USE.

LIKE, I'M GUESS I'M LIKE, I DON'T KNOW THE CONTEXT FOR WHAT'S CURRENTLY THERE.

IS THERE A REASON THAT THAT'S LIKE BEING REDEVELOPED AS IT JUST LIKE, NO.

OKAY.

THERE'S A MIX OF, UH, USES THAT ARE THERE AND WE'LL BE THERE FOR AWHILE BECAUSE OF LEASES.

THERE'S A, A MIX OF SOME USES THAT HAVE SOME BUILDINGS THAT COULD BE REPURPOSED.

AND THEN THERE'S A LOT OF VACANT LAND THAT CAN ALSO BE ZONED LA TODAY, BUT IT MIGHT BE BETTER USED MAYBE A BETTER MIX.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE A ROAD SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE A PRIVATE ROAD GOING THROUGH THE SITE AND THE CITY'S TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT AS A PUBLIC ROAD, WHICH MEANS TO MAKE ALL THE MEASUREMENTS WORK, WE MIGHT HAVE TO REALIGN IT.

SO THOSE ARE ALL THINGS THAT ARE ENTERING INTO THE PLANNING PROCESS.

AND THAT'S WHY IT TAKES A WHILE.

OKAY.

AND YOU WERE TALKING TO THE TCQ? I THINK I THOUGHT I READ SOMETHING IN THE BACKUP, BUT YOU'RE ALREADY TALKING TO TCEQ.

YES.

YES.

OKAY.

SO, AND THEIR REQUIREMENTS, LIKE THEY ARE SEPARATE FROM YOURS, LIKE THE CITY, BUT LIKE THEY COULD STOP THE DEVELOPMENT IF, UH, YOU WEREN'T MEETING THOSE REQUIREMENTS.

YES.

UM, AND THEN I HAD A QUESTION FOR THE NEIGHBORS.

UM, YOU HAD SAID, I DIDN'T QUITE CATCH WHAT YOU SAID.

UH, YOU PREFERRED THE PARK TO BE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

YES.

UM, THE CURRENT LOCATION IS FOR OUR PARTICULAR NEIGHBORHOOD.

I SPEAK MORE INTO THE MICROPHONE, PLEASE.

IS THIS BETTER? NO, NO.

UM, IT NEEDS TO BE TURNED ON MAYBE A RED DOT.

OKAY.

IS ANY OF THIS WORKING BETTER? WE'LL HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE SPEAKER.

OH, OKAY.

OKAY.

WELL, IS THIS BETTER? NO.

UM, WHAT CAN WE DO? SHE ANSWERED AND THEN WE REPEAT FOR THE IPAD.

WOULD THAT WORK? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

OR WE'LL AROUND HERE.

UH, SO THE NEIGHBORHOOD DID NOT REALLY KNOW AT FIRST THAT THESE, THE NEIGHBORHOOD REALLY DIDN'T KNOW THAT THERE WERE SOME KONA, PARD NEGOTIATIONS GOING ON BETWEEN PARD AND THE DEVELOPER.

AND THAT, THAT PARTICULAR TRACT OF LAND HAD BEEN SELECTED.

THAT'S IN THE LOWER HALF OF LOT 11, AND WE TOURED THAT LOT.

IT HAS EXTREMELY DENSE MULTITUDE OF TREES.

AND IT ALSO HAS SOME OF THOSE CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES THAT WE MENTIONED.

UM, AND THE PATH THAT THEY SUGGEST IS FOR PEOPLE TO WALK FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AT THE END OF JENNINGS, WHICH IS RIGHT NEAR MCNEIL,

[00:40:01]

UH, PUTTING A LITTLE PATH THROUGH THAT DEAD END AREA.

AND THE WHOLE PATH GOES ALONG THE EASEMENT, BEHIND ALL THE HOUSES ON AVERY ISLAND AND CURVES AROUND BY THE MULTIFAMILY.

AND WE WENT AND WHEN IT WAS MEASURED BY TOM AND I CAN'T REMEMBER HIS LAST NAME WHO WORKS FOR PART, HE, HE REALIZED IT WAS OVER A MILE, UH, THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO WALK TO GET TO THAT PART.

AND IT DOESN'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF PARKING BY IT EITHER.

SO OUR SUGGESTION, IF I DON'T KNOW IF HE CAN GO BACK TO ONE OF MY SLIDES, UH, BUT THERE'S ONE THAT SHOWS WITH THE RED LINES, UH, OF THE EASEMENT BEHIND OUR HOUSES.

AND SO THERE IS A LOT 14 AF OH, I THINK YOU HAD IT.

IT WAS A PREVIOUS ONE, MAYBE.

NOPE.

OKAY.

KEEP GOING.

I'LL SEE IT.

AND I'M GOING TO HERE.

UM, I THINK IT'S WITH BUFFERS OR SO IT MIGHT BE COMING UP AFTER THIS SLIDE.

OKAY.

THIS ONE.

OKAY.

SO A LOT 14 F IS THE LOT THAT'S RIGHT IN THE CENTER AT THE BOTTOM, AND IT HAS A SMALL COMP OF TREES, UH, BUT NOT A FULL BUFFER BETWEEN IT AND THE BACK OF OUR HOUSES, BUT JENNINGS THAT LITTLE DEAD END STREET THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A PATH FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS RIGHT THERE.

SO IF THE PARK WERE LOCATED WHERE, UH, THAT LARGE GRASSY AREAS AND 14 F UH, IT'S BETTER BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THOSE ENVIRONMENTAL CRITICAL FEATURES THAT YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

UH, NEIGHBORS DON'T HAVE TO WALK OVER A MILE AND A HALF TO GET TO A PARK OR TRY TO DRIVE ON A PRO PRIVATE ROAD OR NOT HAVE PARKING WHEN THEY GET THERE.

AND TO US, UH, SINCE THEY WERE GOING TO PUT IN A LOT OF SPORTS ACTIVITIES IN THE PARK, UH, THEY DON'T HAVE TO CLEAR A BUNCH OF TREES TO DO THAT.

THE LAND'S PRETTY FLAT.

IT'S REALLY GOOD FOR ADA NEEDS LIKE ME OR FOR SENIORS TO HAVE ACCESS, TO PLAY SPORTS AND GAMES ON.

AND YOU CAN SEE THERE'S A HUGE PARKING LOT.

AND THAT IS, UH, FLEXTRONICS, I BELIEVE IS THAT COLETTE'S RICHARD.

UH, AND THEY HAD LIKE THREE LARGE PARKING LOTS.

AND OF COURSE IT'S PANDEMIC TIME NOW.

SO YOU CAN'T REALLY TELL, BUT EVEN BEFORE THE PANDEMIC AND WHOEVER USED THAT BUILDING NEVER USED ALL THOSE PARKING LOTS.

AND PERHAPS A DEAL COULD BE WORKED OUT WHERE SOME OF THE PARKING LOT THAT THEY DON'T USE, WHICH IS, UH, JUST ACROSS FROM WHERE THIS PARK MIGHT POSSIBLY BE, IS GOING TO HAVE, UH, SOME AVAILABLE PARKING PERHAPS, OR IT'S FLAT ENOUGH.

YOU CAN PUT PARKING AT THAT LOCATION.

AND ALSO, UH, ONE OF THE THINGS WE LIKED ABOUT IT, UH, WAS, YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I'M NOT AN ARBORIST, BUT SINCE THEY'RE GONNA HAVE TO CLEAR A LOT OF TREES AND A LOT OF 11 OR WHEREVER THEY BUILD, IF THERE WERE A WAY TO SAVE SOME OF THOSE TREES AND TRANSPORT THEM AND PUT THEM HERE, BECAUSE THIS, THIS NEEDS A LITTLE BIT MORE TREES THAN IT'S GOT, BUT IT DOES HAVE THE NICE FLAT LAND AREA FOR THE SPORTS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES THAT THEY WANTED TO PUT THERE.

AND IT'S A LOT CLOSER FOR THE NEIGHBORS WHO DON'T HAVE, YOU KNOW, WE, WE HAVEN'T HAD A PARK IN FOR THE 37 YEARS AT THAT BIEBER HAS BEEN THERE.

RATTAN CREEK IS ACROSS, YOU KNOW, BUT IT'S A PRIVATE BUD PARK AND WE CAN'T GO THERE WITHOUT PAYING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS IN EXTRA FEES.

AND THE ONLY OTHER PARKS NEARBY YOU HAVE TO DRIVE TO, AND THEY'RE REALLY MORE CONVENIENT FOR RIATA TRACE ACCESS.

UH, THEY HAVE TWO PARKS OVER THERE.

SO REALLY THE ONLY NEIGHBORHOOD THAT DOESN'T HAVE, UM, WALKING DISTANCE ACCESS TO A PARK, AND WE JUST THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE A MUCH BETTER LOCATION FOR IT.

OKAY.

UM, AND THIS MIGHT, YOU MIGHT KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS.

I'LL ASK THIS BY THE IT'S ALSO MIGHT BE THE APPLICANT.

UH, IS THERE A POSSIBILITY OF CONNECTING, UH, CLOSER TO, UH, WHERE THE PROPOSED PARK IS NOW? LIKE, ESPECIALLY IF THERE'S A DRAINAGE DITCH, UH, CURRENTLY THAT CONNECTS TO AVERY ISLAND, IS THERE A POSSIBILITY OF HAVING PEDESTRIAN ACCESSIBILITY, UH, THROUGH THAT PORTION? UM, OH, I KNOW THAT, YEAH.

AND DISCUSSED, I'VE DISCUSSED IT WITH SOME PEOPLE AT PART AND THEY HAD LOOKED AT IT, BUT, UM, YOU'D HAVE TO BUILD SOME KIND OF, A LITTLE BRIDGE TO GO OVER THE DRAINAGE DITCH AND SAFETY CONCERNS ARE THERE.

IT'S DEFINITELY WIDE ENOUGH AND IT'S, YOU KNOW, MORE CONVENIENTLY CLOSE TO WHERE THE LOCATION IS IN LOT 11.

UH, BUT IT, UH, THERE'S ANOTHER,

[00:45:01]

UH, SORT OF A WIDE PIECE OF LAND BETWEEN TWO HOUSES.

AND I'M SORRY, I CAN'T REMEMBER THE ADDRESS, BUT THE LOT ACTUALLY BELONGS TO ONE OF THE PEOPLE, EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T HAVE LIKE FENCES BLOCKING IT OFF OR ANYTHING.

UH, SO THAT WAS TALKED ABOUT, BUT IT'S THAT OVER A MILE DISTANCE FALLS OUT OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR PARK LOCATIONS.

AND SO THAT'S IN PARTICULAR WHY THE LOCATION IN A LOT 11 IS NOT FEASIBLE BECAUSE IT DOESN'T FIT THE REQUIREMENTS THAT YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO WALK TO THAT PARK WITHIN A MILE.

IT CAN'T BE MORE THAN A MILE AND RIGHT NOW MEASURES BEING MORE THAN A MILE TO GET TO IT.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND DID YOU WANT TO ADDRESS THAT MR. SUTTLE? CAUSE I SAW YOU START TO ALMOST OPEN YOUR MOUTH.

I'M TRYING TO GET OUT OF YOUR LEG AS WELL THERE, BUT I DON'T WANT TO CRAMP YOUR STYLE.

OKAY.

UM, COMMISSIONER BRAY, WE'RE ALL ABOUT CONNECTIVITY, WHETHER IT'S AT THE CUL-DE-SAC OR IF WE COULD FIGURE OUT A WAY THROUGH THE DRAINAGE, OFTENTIMES, UH, YOU GET A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION OF THE FOLKS THAT LIVE NEARBY BECAUSE THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION ON WHETHER THEY WANT PEOPLE COMING IN AND OUT.

BUT IF PART OF THE RECOMMENDATION WAS TO EXPLORE MORE CONNECTIVITY, WE WOULD, WE WOULD CERTAINLY TAKE THAT TO HEART AND, AND WOULD WELCOME THAT.

OKAY.

UH, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU BOTH.

AND NOW I WILL GO TO COMMISSIONER KING, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AND THEN I'LL JUST SAY, AND I'M GOING TO GO COMMISSIONER KING, AND THEN OF COURSE I'M HERE AND THEN COMMISSIONER WOODY.

I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN YOU.

THANK YOU, CHAIR.

UH, YES, I DO HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS AND, UH, ONE, UH, JUST WANTED TO TRY TO CLARIFY IF I COULD, UH, ABOUT WHERE THE, UH, I HEARD SOME DISCUSSION EARLIER ABOUT THAT THE APPLICANT WAS WILLING TO, UH, OR HAS INDICATED THAT THEY'RE NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANY OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL OR WATERSHED.

CAN SOMEBODY CLARIFY THAT IN STAFF OR THE APPLICANT ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT? I WILL SAY WE'RE MEETING CURRENT CODE ON ALL DEVELOPMENT ON THIS BEING PRESENTED TO US TODAY WOULD NOT CHANGE EXISTING, UH, CITY CODES.

UH THAT'S THAT'S CORRECT.

OKAY.

WE'RE ASKING TO DO TONIGHT IS TO BE ABLE TO, UH, ADD RESIDENTIAL USE AND DELETE SOME INDUSTRIAL USES ON LOT 11, BUT WE'RE NOT CHANGING ANY OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL CODES AT ALL.

OKAY.

AND, UH, UH, I JUST THOUGHT I HEARD EARLIER YOU, OKAY, THERE, THERE YOU GO.

I SEE WHAT YOU'RE AND THEN THE BAR LIMIT THAT I BELIEVE I READ WORDS TWO TO ONE AND, UH, I THINK IT WAS INDICATED EARLIER THAT YOU WERE GOING TO CHANGE THAT TO ONE-TO-ONE.

YES.

IT WAS A DESIRE OF A COMMISSIONER TO THAT.

WE BRING THAT DOWN ON LOT 11 TO ONE-TO-ONE.

OKAY.

AND I'M LOOKING AT THE BACKUP AND I DON'T, I SEE TWO TO ONE THERE, BUT THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT MAXIMUM FLOOR AREA RATIO IS GOING TO BE WONDERFUL.

ONE.

INSTEAD WE HAD ASKED FOR TWO TO ONE AND NOW LOOKING AT THE MULTI-FAMILY SITE, IT CAN BE ONE-TO-ONE.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

AND W IN THAT EXHIBIT A WHERE I'M READING FROM IN THE BACKUP SITES DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS, THERE'S SECTION ONE B, AND IT SAYS IF THERE IS A CONFLICT BETWEEN THIS ORDINANCE, WHICH IS THE ORDINANCE THAT WOULD BE, I GUESS, APPROVED OF, IF THIS GOES FORWARD TO COUNCIL AND GETS APPROVED THE ZONING CASE AND APPLICABLE CITY OF AUSTIN RULES REGULATIONS IN ORDINANCE, THIS ORDINANCE, INCLUDING THE EXHIBITS SHALL CONTROL.

SO THAT'S TELLING ME THAT IF THERE'S A CONFLICT BETWEEN SOMETHING IN THIS ORDINANCE AND SOMETHING IN THE CITY RULES, REGULATIONS IN ORDINANCE, THIS ORDINANCE CONTROLS, AND THAT KIND OF WORRIES ME, I JUST, IS THAT A STANDARD THING THAT'S THAT CAN STAFF ADDRESS THAT? IS THAT A STANDARD COMPONENT OF THESE SITE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS, THESE PDA AGREEMENTS? THAT'S A STEP A QUESTION FOR STAFF.

OH YES.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER KING.

SHERRY'S HER LATEST WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT? BASICALLY THE, WHAT IT IS IS THAT THE ORDINANCE LOCKS IN THE TIMELINE FOR THE PDA.

SO IT LOCKS THE CONDITIONS IN, OR THE PLAN DEVELOPMENT AREAS ZONING.

SO IF THINGS WERE TO CHANGE IN THE CODE IN THE FUTURE, IT WOULD BE SUBJECT TO WHEN THE ORDINANCE WAS APPROVED.

OKAY.

AND SO THAT SENTENCE, I JUST READ

[00:50:01]

IT AND I'M NOT SURE IF YOUR, WAS THIS, THESE EXHIBIT A, WAS THAT DEVELOPED BY STAFF OR WAS THAT BY THE APPLICANT? I SEE, I SEE.

SO THAT'S A COMPONENT THE APPLICANT PREFERS TO BE IN, IN THIS EXHIBIT.

I SEE.

IT'S NOT NECESSARILY SOMETHING STAFF WOULD, WOULD HAS ASKED FOR IN THERE.

THAT IS CORRECT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THAT, THAT COMPONENT WHERE IT WORRIES ME A LITTLE BIT THERE.

UH, AND THANK YOU STAFF, AND IT'S A LITTLE BIT HARDER, A LITTLE BIT HARD TO UNDERSTAND FOR ALL OF US IN THIS, UH, THIS, UH, HYBRID MEETING.

AND I JUST WANT TO SAY, I REALLY APPRECIATE EVERYBODY WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS THING WORK.

I, I JUST WISH THAT, UH, THE FOLKS WHO PARTICIPATING IN THE PUBLIC ALSO HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE VIRTUALLY BECAUSE I, I, I'VE HEARD THAT SOME FOLKS ARE WORRIED ABOUT COMING UP IN PERSON AND TESTIFYING.

AND, AND SO I DO APPRECIATE THOSE OF YOU ARE THERE IN PERSON, YOU KNOW, TAKING THE RISK AND DOING THE DUTY OF THE PUBLIC HERE IN THIS COMMISSION.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN COMMISSIONER SMITH.

THANKS.

UH, I, I MEAN, THIS IS REALLY A PRETTY SIMPLE CASE WHERE IF WE DON'T DO ANYTHING, YOU CAN BUILD THIS SIDE OUT AS ALL INDUSTRIAL, UH, THE ENTIRE SITE.

UM, WHAT'S, YOU'RE ASKING TO DO IS INSTEAD OF DOING IT ALL INDUSTRIAL, YOU WANT TO MIX IN SOME MULTIFAMILY IN PLACE OF THE INDUSTRIAL USES AND MINIMIZE SOME OF THE INDUSTRIAL USES IN THIS PARTICULAR TRACK 11, WHICH MAKES SENSE.

UM, WE, WE NEED MORE, MORE HOUSING AND DON'T NECESSARILY NEED MORE INDUSTRIAL SERVICES IN THIS AREA.

UM, THE SITE DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS, YOU WERE SPECIFYING ARE REALLY LIMITED TO LOT WITH LOT SIZE IMPERVIOUS COVER BUILDING HEIGHT, VERY MINIMAL.

YOU'RE NOT ASKING FOR CLARIFICATION OF ANY ZONING OR OF ANY ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS OR WATER QUALITY REGULATIONS.

SO TO THE EXTENT THAT THIS DOCUMENT GOVERNS OVER CODE, JUST DOCUMENT DOESN'T ADDRESS, ENVIRONMENTAL, IT DOESN'T ADDRESS WATER.

IT DOESN'T ADDRESS THOSE ISSUES.

SO CURRENT CODE WILL APPLY FROM NOW ON, IS THAT CORRECT? AS IT RELATES TO WATER, ENVIRONMENTAL WATERSHED AND SO FORTH? YES.

THE APPLICANT HAS STATED THEY'RE COMPLYING WITH CURRENT CODE.

YES.

OKAY, COOL.

UM, AND THIS PROPOSED SITE PLAN THEY HAVE, WHAT IS THE SETBACK FROM THE RESIDENTIAL AREAS ROUGHLY? IS IT 300 FEET OR SO, OR 400 FEET? YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LET ME LOOK FOR A SECOND HERE.

OF COURSE, I DON'T HAVE THAT SPECIFIC.

OKAY.

SO THERE IS NO SPECIFIC SETBACK FROM THE RESIDENTIAL AREAS.

THEY WOULD HAVE COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS THAT WOULD APPLY.

OKAY.

SO IT WOULD BE AT LEAST A MINIMUM 25 FOOT SETBACK.

UM, THE PROPOSED, UH, DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS ARE A MINIMUM LOT WITH THE 50 FEET, NO MINIMUM INTERIOR SIDE YARD, REAR YARD, FRONT YARD, OR STREET YARD SETBACKS.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

SO JUST, SO THERE REALLY IS NO ENVIRONMENTAL OR WATERSHED ADDRESSED HERE AT ALL.

THAT'S COOL.

OKAY.

THAT'S ALL I GOT.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN COMMISSIONER, WHAT DO YOU, DID YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AND I SEE A SHAKE OF THE HEAD.

NO, OR, OKAY, GREAT.

AND THEN, UM, AND IF YOU, IF ANY OCCURRED JUST YOU WOULD BE FIRST AND THEN COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

YEAH.

I'LL JUST GO AHEAD AND FINISH OUT AND ASK ABOUT THE BUFFER.

THE NEIGHBORS MENTIONED A REQUEST FOR A TREE BUFFER TO REMAIN INTACT.

COULD YOU SPEAK TO, SORRY, I DON'T KNOW THAT I WAS THINKING THE APPLICANT.

COULD YOU SPEAK TO THE CURRENT SITE PLAN AND WHAT YOU'RE ENVISIONING FOR A TREE BUFFER? SURE.

THE THERE'S A SITE PLAN ON FILE IN THE REVIEW PROCESS RIGHT NOW.

AND, UM, LET ME SEE IF I'VE GOT MY, SO IF YOU COULD PULL UP APPLICANT'S PRESENTATION.

SO IF, UH, GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, WHAT THIS ONE SHOWS IS THE ENTIRE 1 78, AND THAT LOT 11 IS WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT NOW.

AND YOU CAN SEE A LOT 11 THERE'S TREES ON THE BOTTOM TREES ON THE TOP ELECTRIC SUBSTATION IN THE PARKING GARAGE THAT ALL STAYS.

LET'S GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE THAT SHOWS EVERYTHING AROUND US IS ZONED I AND EVERYTHING CURRENTLY ZONED A LOT.

NEXT SLIDE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO THIS IS A SITE PLAN.

THAT'S ON FILE.

IT'S HARD TO SEE, I KNOW WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT IT ON A SCREEN, BUT AT THE TOP YOU SEE THE NEIGHBORS THEY'RE ON AVERY ISLAND,

[00:55:01]

AND THEN YOU SEE THE TREES, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE APARTMENT COMPLEX, WHICH IS KIND OF DEAD CENTER ALONG THE ROAD.

AND THE NEIGHBORS IS ROUGHLY 300 FEET AND THAT'S THE 300 FOOT BUFFER THAT WE'RE PROPOSING IN THIS SITE PLAN.

AND THEN YOU SEE THE, THE POND AND, UM, ALL THE TREES AND THEN MINIMAL SURFACE PARKING.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE ALL THE COORDINATION AND THE NEIGHBORS COMING OUT TONIGHT.

OKAY.

AND THEN, UM, AND I WANT TO SAY, I APPRECIATE ALSO ALL THE WORK THAT EVERYBODY HAS DONE AND ESPECIALLY I REALLY, UM, I HAD ACTUALLY ALREADY BEEN IN CONTACT WITH MR. SUTTLE AND AMANDA MORROW.

AND THANK YOU FOR SENDING THE, THE INFORMATION ABOUT CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES AND SO MUCH MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL.

THAT WAS WONDERFUL.

AND ON THAT, I'M GOING TO ASK IF THERE IS ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR SHOULD WE JUST GO TO A MOTION? OKAY.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER, WHAT WERE THE ITEMS THAT YOU WANTED TO ADD? OH, YES.

OKAY.

GO AHEAD.

SLOWLY.

WHAT I WAS DOING WAS COMPILING A COMPLETE LIST OF WHAT THE APPLICANT WANTED, UH, TO PROHIBIT WHAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD SUGGESTED AND THE APPLICANT AGREED TO.

AND THE INDUSTRIAL USES, UH, ALLOWED AN L I, UM, I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE FLAMMABLE STORAGE ON BASIC INDUSTRY, UH, THAT THE APPLICANT AGREED TO PROHIBIT.

SO THE COMPLETE LIST IS AUTO REPAIR, BASIC INDUSTRY BUILDING MAINTENANCE SERVICES, CAMPGROUND, COMMERCIAL OFF STREET, PARKING, CONSTRUCTION, SALES, AND SERVICES, CONVENIENCE STORAGE, CUSTOM MANUFACTURING.

THAT'S AN L I USE DROP OFF RECYCLING COLLECTION FACILITY.

THAT'S L I USE FUNERAL SERVICES, GENERAL WAREHOUSING, UH, AND DISTRICT, UH, KENNELS, LAUNDRY SERVICES, LIGHT MANUFACTURING.

THAT'S AN L I USE LIMITED WAREHOUSE AND DISTRIBUTION CENTER IS N A L I E.

UH, USE MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE FACILITIES, OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT, PEDICAB STORAGE, AND, UH, DISPATCH RECYCLING CENTER AT BELIEVE.

THAT WAS AN L I USE RESOURCE EXTRACTION WAS AN L I USE SCRAP AND SALVAGE WAS AN L I USE SERVICE STATION, THEATER, TRANSPORTATION, TERMINAL, AND VEHICLE STORAGE.

AND I PROVIDED THAT LIST TO ANDREW AND I NEGLECTED TO SEND THAT TO, UH, MS. , BUT I CAN DO THAT.

FIRST THING, I WAIT TO EIGHT O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING.

OKAY.

IN THE APPLICANTS.

GOOD.

WITH ALL OF THOSE.

OKAY.

THAT PETTY CAB DEAL.

DEAL'S A LITTLE TOUGH, BUT I THINK WE'LL GO WITH THEM.

OKAY.

SO WHAT WAS THAT EMOTION? OKAY.

UM, HI, UM, THOUGHT THAT, WELL, I CAN MAKE THE MOTION.

I THOUGHT THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER GREENBERG MIGHT WANT TO MAKE THAT MOTION, BUT I, UM, HAD ONE LAST QUESTION.

ONE OF THE CONCERNS I HAVE IS WHAT BOTHERS ME ABOUT PHASED APPROACHES IS YOU DON'T DO TIA IS BASED ON THE CUMULATIVE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC YOU'RE ADDING, AND THAT MAY PAY FOR SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS LIKE FOR A LIGHT, FOR EXAMPLE.

SO IS THERE A WAY TO DO A TA WILL BE REQUIRED BASED ON A CUMULATIVE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC? UM, BASED ON, I KNOW IT SAID EACH NEW SITE PLAN, BUT YOU COULD THEORETICALLY HAVE ONE THAT'S 1900 AND THEN ANOTHER ONE THAT'S 1900.

YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M SAYING? SO I WANTED TO SEE IF THERE WAS A WAY WE CAN ALSO, IN ADDITION TO THE USE PROHIBITIONS, THE ONE-TO-ONE FLORIDA AREA RATIO THAT WE COULD ALSO, UM, MENTIONED THAT WE WANT THIS TO COMPLY WITH CURRENT CODE ON LOT 11.

AND THEN IF WE COULD DO SOMETHING TO REQUEST THAT A NEW TIA IS BASED ON CUMULATIVE COUNTS FOR EACH

[01:00:01]

ADDITIONAL TRACK CHANGES FOR THE RECORD, THE APPLICANT WILL DO A TIA FOR THE WHOLE 1 79 CUMULATIVE, NOT, NOT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, NOT 1900 TRIPS THING, BUT A MASTER TA FOR THE ENTIRE PROJECT.

UH, AND WHEN WOULD THAT OCCUR ON THE NEXT, UH, SITE PLAN? YES.

OKAY.

GOTCHA.

THEN THAT I DON'T NEED THAT AS AN AMENDMENT.

SO THE MOTION WOULD BE APPROVED STAFF RECOMMENDATION.

ONE-TO-ONE CURRENT CODE ON LOT 11 A ONE-TO-ONE FAR, AND ALL THE USES ARE READ INTO THE RECORD ARE PROHIBITED.

IS THERE A SECOND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER BRAY AND ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? OR SHOULD WE JUST DO A VOTE? YOU HAVE A HAND UP.

OKAY.

A HAND WHERE, OH, COMMISSIONER GREENBERG.

I'M SORRY.

I'M LOOKING HERE.

I'M LOOKING AT THERE.

OKAY.

HELLO, CHRIS COMMISSIONER GREENBERG.

UM, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK ABOUT REMOVING THAT STATEMENT THAT SAYS IF THERE'S A CONFLICT BETWEEN THIS ORDINANCE AND APPLICABLE CITY OF AUSTIN RULES, REGULATIONS, AND ORDINANCES THIS ORDINANCE, INCLUDING THE EXHIBITS SHALL CONTROL.

UM, AND MAYBE I'M JUST MISUNDERSTANDING.

I THOUGHT THAT, UM, MR. SUTTLE SAID THEY WEREN'T ASKING TO GRANDFATHER ANYTHING, BUT THIS STATEMENT SOUNDS LIKE WHATEVER ENVIRONMENTAL RULES THERE ARE RIGHT NOW WOULD APPLY.

EVEN IF YOU DO SOME DEVELOPMENT, I DON'T KNOW, 10 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD IN THIS BDA.

NO.

WHAT THAT STATEMENT MEANS IS FOR INSTANCE, UM, THIS ORDINANCE IS GOING TO SAY, NO, NO, PEDICAB USE THAT'S IN CONFLICT WITH WHAT THE CURRENT CODE WOULD SAY, BECAUSE L I WOULD ALLOW IT.

SO THIS ORDINANCE, TO THE EXTENT THAT IT'S MENTIONED IN THIS ORDINANCE, THAT'S THE ONLY TIME THAT THE CONFLICT WOULD, WOULD BE RESOLVED IN FAVOR OF THE ORDINANCE.

IT'S NOT A CATCHALL.

IT'S JUST WHEN IT'S SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED HERE, THAT MEANS THAT IT'S, IF IT'S IN CONFLICT WITH CITY CODE, THEN THIS ONE CONTROLS, THAT'S ALL THAT'S MEANT TO DO IN THIS ORDER THAT ONLY RELATES TO THE LOT 11 THAT'S CORRECT.

OKAY.

WELL, ACTUALLY THE ORDINANCE, THE ORDINANCE APPLIES TO 179 ACRES.

HOWEVER, WE'RE ONLY CHANGING THE DEVELOPMENT REGS ON LOT 11, AND YOU WILL SEE THE REST OF IT IN THE FUTURE.

COOL.

THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

I ALSO APPRECIATE THAT YOU'RE REUSING THINGS LIKE THE ABANDONED GARAGE AND SITES THAT WERE CLEARED, BUT NOT USED.

OKAY.

AND COMMISSIONER DENCKLA REDONE, OR, UM, WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND FROM YOU AND COMMISSIONER BRAY.

AND I JUST WANT TO CONFIRM THAT MS. WAS NODDING HER HEAD WITH MR. SUTTLES EXPLANATION, THAT CURRENT CODE WOULD APPLY.

UM, YES.

OKAY.

AND SHOULD WE MAKE THAT PART OF THE MOTION? CURRENT CODE WOULD APPLY ON LOT 11 CURRENT CODE WILL AUTOMATICALLY APPLY CAUSE IT'S NOT AN ASSET AS AN EXCEPTION.

OKAY.

GOTCHA.

OKAY.

SO WE HAVE A MOTION A SECOND AND ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.

PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND AND RAISE YOUR HAND UP THERE TOO.

AND I WILL SAY IN FAVOR, I JUST WANT TO GO TO THE FIRST, I SEE COMMISSIONER GREENBERG, COMMISSIONER RAY IN FAVOR, BUT I DON'T SEE HANDS FROM COMMISSIONER.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER WOODY.

AND, UM, THEN ON THE DIOCESE, I SEE COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, COMMISSIONER SMITH, COMMISSIONER BRAY, COMMISSIONER DANGLER, AND COMMISSIONER KOSTA ALLEN COMMISSIONER KING.

OKAY.

SO IT'S A LITTLE HARD.

OKAY.

AND ME SO UNANIMOUS AND, UM, THE MOTION PASSES AND THANK YOU EVERYBODY FOR THIS.

AND I BELIEVE WE WILL HAVE A LIST TO SHERRY TOMORROW.

THANK YOU.

AND THANK YOU, NEIGHBORS.

AND, AND, UM, IT, WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE FOR STAFF TO LET ATD KNOW? UH, THE TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT KNOW THAT THE SIGNAL TIMINGS MIGHT NEED TO BE CHECKED ON MCNEIL ROAD.

OKAY.

I WILL LET THEM KNOW.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU THEN.

AND THANK YOU EVERYBODY WHO SHOWED UP AND NOW ONTO THE NEXT ITEM, WHICH IS B FOR REZONING AND MARK.

UM, LET'S SEE, 14, SO FORTH AND SO ON.

AND MARK BROWN CHAIR, COMMISSIONER, LADIES

[01:05:01]

ON HANDOVER.

IF WE COULD JUST PAUSE FOR TWO MINUTES SO I CAN GO OUT INTO THE ATRIUM AND JUST MAKE SURE WE DON'T HAVE ANY SPEAKERS OR, OKAY.

GREAT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT.

OKAY.

SO WHY DON'T WE TAKE, UH, LIKE, UH, IT IS WHAT TIME NOW? SEVEN 18.

WHY DON'T WE BE BACK IN SEVEN AT 7 22, 4 MINUTES.

OKAY.

7 22.

ARE WE ALLOWED TO USE A BATHROOM WITHOUT BREAKING QUORUM? OKAY.

I'M JUST ANNOUNCING WELCOME BACK.

AND NOW IT IS TIME FOR BEFORE

[B.4. Rezoning: C14-2021-0117 - West Slaughter Lane Residences; District 5]

AND MARK GRAHAM.

YOU'RE THE CASE MANAGER.

AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE, MR. GRAHAM, IF YOU COULD TEST IT.

MADAM CHAIR AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION, I'M MARK GRAHAM FROM HOUSING AND PLANNING AND PRESENTING CASEY 14 20 21 0 1 1 7 CALLED WEST SLAUGHTER LANE RESIDENCES PRO PROPERTY'S ADDRESS AS 10 17 WEST SLAUGHTER LANE.

THE CURRENT ZONING IS DR.

DEVELOPMENT RESERVE.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING G R M U V, WHICH IS COMMUNITY COMMERCIAL MIXED USE VERTICAL MIXED USE COMBINING HIS OWN DISTRICT.

THIS IS FOR A SITE THAT'S JUST OVER THREE ACRES WHERE THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THE ZONING TO BUILD 290 APARTMENT UNITS WITH 10% DESIGNATED AFFORDABLE AS REQUIRED WITH THE REQUESTED VERTICAL USE A MIXED USE BUILDING A 3000 SQUARE FOOT COMMERCIAL COMPONENT THAT IS ALSO INTENDED AS IS ALSO REQUIRED WITH THE VERTICAL MIXED USE.

THE SITE, UH, IS A TREED SITE WITH A CREEK BUFFER RUNNING DIAGONALLY THROUGH IT.

AND THE CREEK BUFFER FORCES THE DEVELOPMENT NORTH TOWARDS SLAUGHTER SO THAT THE VERTICAL MIXED USE BUILDING CONCENTRATING THE DEVELOPMENT ON SLAUGHTER MAKES SENSE TO THE STAFF.

THE WESTWATER LANE IS A LEVEL FOUR STREET.

IT'S AN ARTERIAL STREET IN AUSTIN STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN.

THERE ARE THREE TRAVEL LANES IN EACH DIRECTION, THE CENTER MEDIAN AND BIKE PATHS AND SIDEWALKS ON BOTH SIDES.

THIS IS A MAJOR STREET.

IT'S ALSO DESIGNATED FUTURE TRANSIT CORRIDOR, WHICH IS ONE OF THE CRITERIA FOR A VERTICAL MIXED USE BUILDING.

UH, THE BASIS OF STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS THAT IT, IT DOES FIT WITH A COMMUNITY COMMERCIAL AND MIXED USE, UM, UH, ORDINANCE WHERE IT'S AN INDIVIDUAL INDIVIDUALLY DEVELOPED COMMERCIAL SITE.

THE LOCATIONS ARE ACCESSIBLE FROM MAJOR TRAFFIC WAYS AND IT'S A COMBINATION OF LAND USES.

AND I'VE ALREADY MENTIONED THE WAYS THAT IT MEETS THE VERTICAL MIXED USE CRITERIA.

ALSO THE PROPOSED ZONING SHOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE CITY.

THIS IS A, THIS IS A CORRIDOR THAT IS IDENTIFIED AS AN ACTIVITY CORRIDOR, A FUTURE TRANSIT CORRIDOR.

YET IT DOESN'T HAVE THE BUS SERVICE.

AND THAT OF A LOT OF OUR, OUR, A MAJOR CORRIDOR IS YET, BUT THIS USE IS THE SORT OF USE THE COMPACT DEVELOPMENT THAT WE'RE ANTICIPATING FOR THESE CORRIDORS IN THE FUTURE.

SO WITH, WITH THAT IN MIND, STAFF IS RECOMMENDING, UH, THE REQUESTED REZONING I'LL BE AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UM, THE APPLICANT'S AGENT, ALICE PASCO, THANK YOU, DAVE, NAMED COMMISSION MEMBERS, ALICE GLASGOW, REPRESENTING THE APPLICANT, AND SO GOOD TO SEE ALL OF YOU.

IT'S A LITTLE AWKWARD SPEAKING THROUGH, UH, A MASS.

SO, BUT AT LEAST WE ARE TRYING TO BE SAFE.

SO COMMISSION MEMBERS, UH, I'M HERE FOR ITEM FOUR.

THIS IS THE SUBJECT TRACK.

YOU CAN SEE THE MAP IN FRONT OF YOU AS THE CASE MANAGER JUST INDICATED IT'S A 10, 17 WEST SLAUGHTER LANE.

THE PROPERTY, AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE

[01:10:01]

IS A CREEK THAT RUNS FROM SLAUGHTER LANE, SOUTH WARD, AND, UM, QUITE A BIT OF IT CUTS THROUGH THE TRACK, WHICH MEANS THAT THERE ARE THE ENVIRONMENTAL CRITERIA MANUAL WILL REQUIRE, YOU KNOW, A SETBACK, UH, FROM THE SENTIMENT OF THE CREEK, OBVIOUSLY A GOOD CHUNK OF THE BACK REAR, THE TRUCK WON'T HAVE BUILDINGS WITHIN THAT, A WATERWAY AREA.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO I PUT THIS SLIDE TOGETHER BECAUSE THERE'S ALL THIS CONFUSION ABOUT THE V OVERLAY.

JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE SITE R ZONING IS A DEVELOPMENT RESERVE, WHICH YOU ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A MINIMUM OF 10 ACRES.

WE DO NOT HAVE 10 ACRES, WHICH MEANS THAT OUR SITE IS NON-COMPLIANCE NON-COMPLIANT UNDER THE CITY CODE.

SO THERE IS ONE UNIT THERE, ONE HOUSE, OBVIOUSLY, WHEN YOU ADD AS PROPERTY, THE CITY OF AUSTIN, WHATEVER USES THEIR REMAINS.

HOWEVER, IF WE WERE TO BUILD A NEW HOUSE OR NEW HOMES, YOU STILL HAVE TO GO TO THE BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT FOR VARIANCE.

SO UNDER THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT, THE, UM, GR MUV WILL THE V WHEN USED REQUIRES THAT, UM, 10% OF THE UNITS, THEY ARE RENTAL THAT WILL BE AFFORDABLE AT 80% OF THE ANNUAL MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME.

IF THE DENSITY BONUS IS USED ALSO, YOU MUST HAVE GROUND FLOOR RETAIL.

WHEN YOU USE THE V AND A, THE AFFORDABLE UNITS HAVE TO REMAIN AFFORDABLE FOR 40 YEARS.

I'D ALSO LIKE TO STATE THAT, UM, STARTED LANE
