DO WE HAVE ANYONE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK THIS EVENING? YES.

THE FIRST SPEAKER IS PECK, UH, COMMISSIONERS.

UH, IT'S A PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU, ESPECIALLY ON THIS AUSPICIOUS EVENING.

I HAVE TWO THINGS TO SAY ONE, UH, ON BEHALF OF THE, UH, NAACP, HISPANIC COALITION, OTHER AS A PERSONAL THING, ONE, I HAVE SEEN THE LIST OF ITEMS THAT YOU INTEND TO CONSIDER, UH, THAT HAS BEEN PUBLISHED AND DISTRIBUTED.

WE APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE TWO ITEMS THAT WE HAVE REQUESTED FOR CONSIDERATION ARE ON THAT LIST.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UH, NUMBER TWO, I WANT TO SIMPLY SAY THAT I'VE BEEN WITH Y'ALL, UH, THROUGH, UH, EVERY MEETING YOU PALED.

AND I WANT TO EXPRESS MY APPRECIATION FOR THE HARD WORK THAT THIS COMMISSION HAS DONE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU.

I WAS INVOLVED WITH THE FIRST COMMISSION AND I CAN MAKE A COMPARISON AND I DON'T THINK THEY WORKED ANY HARDER OR ANY MORE COMPETENTLY THAN THIS ONE.

UH, AND THEY HAD BETTER CIRCUMSTANCES.

THEY HAD DATA IN, UH, APRIL, UH, NOT IN AUGUST.

UH, THEY DID NOT HAVE COVID TO DEAL WITH.

UH, AND I THINK YOU ALL HAVE DEALT WITH BOTH OF THOSE PROBLEMS ADMIRABLY, AND I'VE COME UP WITH A TIMELINE AND A WORK SCHEDULE THAT IS GETTING YOU TO THE SAME PLACE THEY GOT TO UNDER MY VERY ADVERSE CIRCUMSTANCES.

AND I WANT TO EXPRESS MY ADMIRATION AND APPRECIATION FOR THE HARD WORK YOU DID.

AND ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THE NEXT SPEAKER IS FRED LEWIS POWERPOINT.

GOOD EVENING.

I WANT TO REITERATE EVERYTHING THAT PECK YARD SAID.

SOMEONE HELPED DRAFT THIS CHARTER.

I WANT TO TELL YOU, WE

[00:05:01]

KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE LONG, HARD, AND ARDUOUS WORK, RATHER THANKLESS TASK, BUT IT IS IMPORTANT.

UH, VERY IMPORTANT, UH, THAT PEOPLE'S DISTRICTS ARE DRAWN FAIRLY TO PROTECT MINORITIES, COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST, AND IT DONE WITHOUT FAVOR OR CONSIDERATION TO POLITICAL GROUPS THINK HOW MUCH BETTER OUR STATE AND THE COUNTRY WOULD BE IF WE DID SOMETHING SIMILARLY IN THAT REGARD, BUT I'M HERE.

I WANTED TO CLEAR UP SOME STUFF, UH, ABOUT HOW TO CONSIDER NEIGHBORHOODS AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST.

FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, AS YOU KNOW, THE CRITERIA IS VERY SPECIFIC ON WHAT YOU CAN CONSIDER IN DRAWING THE LINES.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE, THEY CONSIDER INNUMERABLE THINGS, MANY OF WHICH WE WISH THEY WOULDN'T.

UH, BUT THE FIRST TWO CRITERIA, AS YOU KNOW, AND MR. JOHN HAS TALKED TO YOU IS TO PROTECT THE REPRESENTATION OF HISTORICAL MINORITIES.

UH, AND AS BEST I KNOW Y'ALL HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB WITH THAT.

UH, AND MR. YOUNG HAS KEPT ME UP TO SPEED ON THAT.

UM, THOSE PRIORITIES HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY'RE LAID OUT.

THE THIRD ONE IS CONTIGUOUSNESS AND I DON'T THINK THAT'S BEEN AN ISSUE, BUT THERE'S THE FOURTH PRIORITY AND IT IS FOURTH.

UH, AND THAT IS THE GEOGRAPHIC INTEGRITY OF NEIGHBORHOODS OR LOCAL COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST.

AND I DO UNDERSTAND THAT SOME NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE NOT EXACTLY UNDERSTOOD WHY THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD INTERESTS CAME BEHIND THOSE OF HISTORICAL MINORITIES, BUT THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S IN THE CHARTER.

BUT IF YOU'D GO TO THE, THERE IT IS.

UH, THE REASON IT TALKS ABOUT THE GEOGRAPHIC INTEGRITY OF A LOCAL NEIGHBORHOOD IS BECAUSE NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE COMMON INTERESTS.

GENERALLY SPEAKING, THEY'RE OFTEN FOUNDED AND BUILT AROUND THE SAME TIME AND THEY HAVE TRANSPORTATION NEEDS, INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS, FLOODING, MITIGATION NEEDS, DEVELOPMENT ISSUES, TAX ISSUES, OTHER THINGS.

NOW LET'S BE CLEAR THAT DOESN'T MEAN EVERYBODY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AGREES, UH, SHORTLY IN TRUE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

I DOUBT IT IS IN YOURS, BUT THERE ARE PROBABLY COMMON PROBLEMS AND CONCERNS THAT AFFECT A NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND THE THIRD ONE, IF WE COULD GO THROUGH IT, UH, THE THIRD SLIDE, UH, THIS COMES FROM CALIFORNIA'S COMMISSION, INDEPENDENT REDISTRICTING COMMISSION, WHICH WAS THE BASIS FOR OURS.

AND IT GIVES IT ACTUALLY LAYS OUT IN THE CONSTITUTION, CALIFORNIA.

SOME EXAMPLES OF SHARED INTERESTS, WHICH FOLLOW ALONG WITH WHAT I WAS TELLING YOU.

SO THE POINT IS THAT THE INTEREST OF NEIGHBORHOODS ARE SOMETHING THAT Y'ALL NEED TO CONSIDER.

A NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IS JUST A GROUP OF PEOPLE FROM A NEIGHBORHOOD, AND THEY GENERALLY FALL ALONG THE LINES AND BOUNDARIES OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AT TIMES.

BUT I'LL GIVE YOU TWO MORE MINUTES.

IT'S VERY CONNIE, I'M SLOW TO, UH, NOW LET ME BE REAL CLEAR.

I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS AND THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS, CIVIC ORGANIZATIONS, BUT THIS CHARTER IS PRETTY CLEAR THAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW THE GEOGRAPHIC INTEGRITY OF NEIGHBORHOODS.

AND THOSE GENERALLY OVERLAP WITH THOSE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

UM, AND SO WHAT I WANT TO SAY IS, WHICH IS THE LAST SLIDE IS POLITICS.

AND WHETHER SOMEONE LIKES PARTICULAR GROUP OR LIKES NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE CONSIDERED, OKAY, THAT'S NOT THE ISSUE.

THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS.

IT ISN'T ABOUT POLITICS.

IT'S SPECIFIC CRITERIA, HISTORICAL MINORITIES CONTIGUOUSNESS AND THE PROTECTION OF THE GEOGRAPHIC AND CHARACTER OF NEIGHBORHOODS.

AND SO I WOULD URGE YOU TO FOLLOW THE CRITERIA.

AND THEN ONE LAST THING I WANT TO SAY, BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN MISUNDERSTOOD.

I THINK A LOT OF FOLKS, I AM FAIRLY REPRESENTED, WHICH IS WHAT IS REQUIRED WHEN I VOTE FOR COUNTY-WIDE PEOPLE IN TRAVIS COUNTY, THE DISTRICT ISN'T GERRYMANDERED, IT'S JUST THE LINES I VOTE IN THE PRIMARIES.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE I DON'T LIKE WHEN THAT DOES NOT MEAN I'M NOT BARELY REPRESENTED.

IT JUST MEANS THAT MY VIEW DID NOT PREVAIL.

UH, AND SO I URGE YOU TO FOLLOW THE REQUIREMENT, THE FOURTH PRIORITY REQUIREMENT, UH, AND PROTECT THE INTERESTS, THE LOCAL

[00:10:01]

COMMUNITY INTEREST OF NEIGHBORS.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU.

THE NEXT SPEAKER IS MARY GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

I'M MARY INGLE, AND I'M HERE AS A NEIGHBORHOOD ADVOCATE.

AND I'M ALSO HERE TO TALK ABOUT NEIGHBORHOODS AND ALSO THE AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOODS COUNCIL.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE A PLACE AND THE ICRC PROCESS FOR DETERMINING DISTRICTS BECAUSE WE DO HAVE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC INTERESTS.

MANY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS WERE FORMED IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF TOWN, SOMETIMES COORDINATING WITH THE ORIGINAL HOUSING.

SOME NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS WERE FORMED BECAUSE THEIR HOUSES WERE DISAPPEARING.

IN CERTAIN TIMES DURING THE CITY'S GROWTH.

OTHER NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS WERE FORMED TO FOCUS ON SAFETY AND OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST LIKE DEVELOPMENT PATTERNS, MISSING AMENITIES, LIKE GROCERY STORES, INFRASTRUCTURE LIKE DRAINAGE AND FLOODING.

UM, MOST OF OUR URBAN CORE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS ARE CODIFIED WITH BOUNDARIES AND IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING PROCESS.

SO WE ARE LEGITIMATE ENTITIES, THE AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOODS COUNCIL FOR WHICH I WAS A PRECEDENT FOR FOUR LONG SUFFERING YEARS, AND I'M STILL ALIVE, UH, WAS FORMED IN 1973.

AND IT WAS AN UMBRELLA GROUP FOR NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS.

IT'S FOUNDER, JOANNE BARTS, AND SHE MAY REST IN PEACE.

NOW DID PARTICIPATE IN THE FIRST ROUND OF REDISTRICTING OF THE REDISTRICTING PANEL IN 2011.

SHE RECOGNIZED EARLY IN THE 1970S THAT THERE WAS A NEED FOR A GROUP OF FORUMS FOR NEIGHBORHOODS AND FOR MEETINGS TO DISCUSS NEIGHBORHOOD PROBLEMS AND ISSUES OF SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC INTERESTS.

AND TO EDUCATE PEOPLE.

I, I CONSIDER THE LIFESPAN OF ANC AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOODS, COUNCIL 48 YEARS, A VERY LONG STANDING KIND OF, UM, UH, UM, IT'S A LONGSTANDING, UM, SORRY, I'M A LOSS FOR WORDS RIGHT NOW.

IT'S A LONGSTANDING, UH, IT IS LONGSTANDING.

NEVERMIND.

SO, AND IN CLOSING, I JUST WANT TO URGE YOU TO CONSIDER AFTER YOU'VE CONSIDERED THE LANGUAGE OF THE CHARTER FOR THE OTHER THREE ITEMS, THE IMPORTANCE OF LONGSTANDING ORGANIZATIONS LIKE NEIGHBORHOODS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MS. HENKEL, THE NEXT SPEAKER IS JUSTIN IRVING.

I THINK YOU CAN COMMISSIONERS FOR HAVING ME OUT TONIGHT.

UM, I WANTED TO, AGAIN, VOICE MY, UH, SUPPORT FOR ALL THE WORK THAT YOU'RE DOING AND THE AMAZING JOB.

I COULDN'T AGREE MORE WITH WHAT PECK, UH, PECK'S ASSESSMENT OF YOUR WORK.

AND, UM, UM, YOU GIVE ME A LOT TO BELIEVE IN WHEN IT COMES TO, UH, YOU KNOW, THE FUTURE OF POLITICS AND, AND THE COUNTRY.

I REALLY HOPE THAT THESE EFFORTS AMPLIFY OUT PAST THE AUSTIN, TEXAS.

SO I'VE COME TO YOU TONIGHT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT NEIGHBORHOODS AGAIN, AND TO MAYBE OFFER SOME OF MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND HOW I JOINED COMMUNITY IN AUSTIN.

UM, AUSTIN CAN BE A DIFFICULT PLACE TO FIND YOURSELF IN AS A YOUNG PERSON WHO HAS MOVED HERE.

UM, I MOVED HERE JUST TO ATTEND COLLEGE AND DECIDED TO STAY, BUT DIDN'T REALLY HAVE THE COMMUNITY OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY TO PARTICIPATE IN.

I ENDED UP IN A NEIGHBORHOOD THAT, UM, WAS ACTIVE AND ENGAGING IN CIVICS AND HAD A LOT OF DISAGREEMENT ACTUALLY WITH THEIR, THE WAY THAT THEY PROCEEDED, UM, WHICH PROMPTED ME TO SHOW UP, WHICH PROMPTED ME TO JOIN IN THE CONVERSATION AND WHICH PROMPTED ME TO TAKE, UM,

[00:15:01]

AN ACTIVE HAND IN SHAPING THE, THE WAY THAT THE COMMUNITY SAW ITSELF AND THE WAY THE COMMUNITY SAW ITS NEIGHBORS.

UM, I WAS A RENTER AT THE TIME.

UH, I WASN'T SURE IF I WAS GOING TO FIND AN OPEN SET OF, UM, RECEIVING HANDS TO THAT BECAUSE IT WASN'T NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION THAT I JOINED, BUT TO MY SURPRISE, THAT WAS NOT, UM, NOT, NOT ONLY A, UH, YOU KNOW, IT WAS SOMETHING THAT THEY THOUGHT WASN'T A GOOD ADDITION TO THEIR PERSPECTIVE SET.

AND EVENTUALLY I ENDED UP STAYING IN THAT COMMUNITY HAS A HOMEOWNER, MOSTLY BASED ON THE EXPERIENCE THAT I HAD WITH, WITH THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE.

AND I WANT TO DO A VOICE, UM, YOU KNOW, ECHO BACK, MANY OF THE COMMENTS THAT, UM, FRED AND MARY HAD THAT THAT'S WHAT MAKES A COMMUNITY IS THAT INTERACTION OF PEOPLE.

UM, WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CULTURAL CONTIGUOUSNESS AND GEOGRAPHIC CONTIGUOUSNESS, I BELIEVE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

PEOPLE WITH WITH INTERESTS THAT, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES DIVERGE, BUT SOMETIMES ALIGN, BUT HAVE EACH OTHER TO, TO VOICE THOSE OPINIONS AND SHAPE THE POLICY OF THEIR NEIGHBORS.

UM, I AGREE.

WE DON'T ALWAYS AGREE.

I DIDN'T COME INTO THAT COMMUNITY WITH A MINDSET TO AGREE, ACTUALLY.

UM, BUT THROUGH OPEN PROCESS AND TRANSPARENCY AND, UM, GOODWILL ULTIMATELY CAME AROUND TO A VERY DIFFERENT SET ALMOST 15 YEARS LATER, I'M HERE BEFORE YOU REPRESENTING THE AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOODS COUNCIL AS ITS PRECEDENT.

UM, THANK YOU, MR. IRVING, THOSE ARE ALL THE SPEAKERS WE HAVE THAT SIGNED UP TO SPEAK TONIGHT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF OUR SPEAKERS TODAY.

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON TO OUR FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS.

THIS IS AGENDA ITEM ONE DISCUSSION, UH, OR I'M SORRY, UH, APPROVAL OF MINUTES FROM SEPTEMBER 29TH.

SO IF YOU COULD REVIEW THE MINUTES, PLEASE, IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE ONE MORE SPEAKER QUICKLY, EVERYONE JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU SIGN IN, SIR.

THANK YOU.

AND, UM, EACH SPEAKER HAS THREE MINUTES, SO WE'LL JUST TAKE THIS ONE MORE SPEAKER AND THEN WE WILL MOVE ON TO, UM, MINUTES.

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR PATIENCE.

THE NEXT SPEAKER IS DANIEL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR INDULGING ME.

I'M SORRY.

I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND LIKE A POOR ME, BUT I WAS JUST IN A CAR WRECK.

YEAH.

UM, THANK YOU.

MY NAME IS DANIELLE LIANAS AND I AM AN, A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER.

I SIT ON THE AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOODS, COUNCIL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, AS WELL AS CHAIR OF MY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, AND I BELONG TO PULL THEIR PEOPLE ORGANIZE IN DEFENSE OF EARTH AND, UH, RESOURCES.

UM, SO YOUR JOB IS VERY, VERY DIFFICULT.

I KNOW.

AND, UH, I LIVE IN DISTRICT THREE AND ACTUALLY THE OPPORTUNITY OR MINORITY DISTRICTS ARE REALLY, UH, THAT THAT'S A VERY DIFFICULT THING BECAUSE, UH, SO MANY PEOPLE ARE MOVING AND MIGRATING LIKE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE IT WAS PRIMARILY HISPANIC AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN, IT'S NOW ALMOST A THIRD WHITE AND THAT'S OVER THE LAST NUMBER OF YEARS, BUT REALLY I'M HERE TO TALK ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD INTEGRITIES.

AND AS YOU DRAW THESE LINES, I'M HOPEFUL THAT YOU WILL AVOID SPLITTING NEIGHBORHOODS APART FROM ONE STREET TO ANOTHER.

AND I KNOW, LIKE I SAY, I KNOW THAT YOUR JOB IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, BUT, UM,

[00:20:01]

THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SAY TO YOU THAT, THAT SOME NEIGHBORHOODS, UM, YOU KNOW, THE ECONOMICS AND THE CULTURE, UH, ARE CONTIGUOUS.

AND, UM, SO I'M HOPING THAT YOU DON'T SPLIT THOSE UP AS WE GO ALONG.

AND IT REALLY, THAT'S ALL I HAD TO SAY TO YOU AND, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU, MR. YANNIS.

THE NEXT SPEAKER IS JIM CHRISTIANSON.

MY NAME IS JIM CHRISTIANSON AND I LIVE IN THE OLD INFIELD NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, I'M JUST HERE REALLY TO SPEAK, JUST TO HOPE THAT, UH, THE TWO RESOLUTIONS HERE TO TRY TO UNITE OLD INFIELD INTO ONE, ONE COUNCIL PERSON, UH, DISTRICT WOULD PASS TODAY.

UH, I SEE IT ON THE RESOLUTION AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THE RESOLUTION DOES SAY NORTH OF INFIELD ROAD, INFIELD ROAD GOES ALL THE WAY DOWN TO LAMAR.

UM, A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK INFIELD ROAD, WHICH TURNS INTO WEST 15TH STREET IS, UM, IS INFIELD ROAD, BUT IT'S NOT INFILL ROAD GOES ALL THE WAY DOWN TO LAMAR AND THE PEOPLE DOWN THERE HAVE BEEN TRADITIONALLY IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

SO I APPRECIATE WHOEVER IS THE SPONSOR OF THIS, UH, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS, UH, THIS TIME AND HEARING US OUT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIANSEN.

OKAY.

IS THAT ALL OF OUR SPEAKERS FOR THIS EVENING? THAT'S ALL THEY INDICATED THEY WANT TO SPEAK.

YES.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPEAKERS TONIGHT.

ALL RIGHT, SO WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO OUR FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS.

AGAIN, THIS IS AGENDA ITEM ONE, APPROVING THE MINUTES FROM THE SEPTEMBER 29TH MEETING.

PLEASE REVIEW THE MINUTES.

ARE THERE ANY CORRECTIONS TO THE MINUTES? IF THERE ARE NO CORRECTIONS, THE MINUTES ARE APPROVED.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TO A DISCUSSION OF DRAFT FINAL MAP.

SO AT THIS TIME WE WILL REVIEW THE MAP CHANGES LISTED IN THE SPREADSHEET BEFORE YOU, THIS LIST WAS CREATED BASED ON THE COMMISSION'S DISCUSSION FROM THE LAST MEETING ON SEPTEMBER 29TH, AS WELL AS A CAREFUL WALKTHROUGH OF ALL RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONCERNS PUT FORTH BY THE PUBLIC.

SINCE THE PRELIMINARY MAP WAS APPROVED ON SEPTEMBER 15TH.

AND JUST TO RECAP IN TOTAL, SINCE JULY COMMISSIONERS HAVE HOSTED 17 PUBLIC FORUMS HOSTED 163 ATTENDEES LISTENED TO 81, SPEAKERS COLLECTED 60 MAPS, 168 EMAILS AND NINE VOICE MESSAGES.

SO WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE TO CAPTURE ALL OF THIS TESTIMONY AND NOT MISS A THING, BECAUSE TONIGHT IS THE LAST NIGHT THAT WE WILL MAKE CHANGES TO THIS MAP, EXCEPT IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT, THAT THERE IS SOME GRAVE OVERSIGHT THAT HAS TO BE CORRECTED BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN WE CERTIFY IT, THE COMMISSIONERS LISTED ON THE SPREADSHEET INTEND TO PUT FORTH AND EXPLAIN THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS.

MR. KORBEL WILL DEMONSTRATE THE CHANGES ON HIS MAP AND, UH, VICE CHAIR GONZALEZ WILL DO SO AS WELL AND ASSIST WHERE NEEDED JUST AS A REMINDER TO COMMISSIONERS FOR HOW TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS PROCESS, PLEASE MAKE THE MOTION AND THEN MAKE YOUR CASE FOR IT RATHER THAN THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE CAN JUST START FROM THE TOP, UM, AND WE'LL WORK OUR WAY DOWN FROM THERE.

DOES EVERYONE HAVE THE SPREADSHEET WITH THEM? I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THERE WERE COPIES FOR ALL OF THE COMMISSIONERS TONIGHT.

OKAY.

SO THE FIRST ONE UP ON THE DOCKET HERE IS A MOVE FROM DISTRICT ONE TO DISTRICT NINE.

AND I BELIEVE COMMISSIONER KAMBO

[00:25:01]

WILL SPEAK TO THIS RECOMMENDATION.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO I'M MOVE TO SPLIT.

UM, VTD TOOL, SIX KEEPING ONLY THE LBJ LIBRARY IN DISTRICT ONE.

THAT'S A MOVE FROM DISTRICT ONE TO DISTRICT NINE AND, UH, REGARDING TREAT BOUNDARIES.

DEAN KIT INTO THE NORTH.

ROBERT DUNN WENT TO THE WEST CLYDE LITTLE FIELD SLASH MANOR ROAD TO THE SOUTH AND TO THE EAST RESULTING IN NO POPULATION SHIFT.

OKAY.

IT IS MOVED AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER HARDEN THAT WOULD SPLIT BTD 2 0 6 KEEPING ONLY THE LBJ LIBRARY AND DISTRICT ONE, THE STREET BOUNDARIES BEING DEAN KEATON TO THE NORTH, ROBERT DEADMAN TO THE WEST CLYDE LITTLE FIELD MANOR ROAD TO THE CELLS AND TO THE EAST.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE? OKAY.

THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT WE SPLIT VTD 2 0 6, KEEPING ONLY THE LBJ LIBRARY IN DISTRICT ONE WITH STREET BOUNDARIES, UM, BEING DEAN KEATON TO THE NORTH, ROBERT DEADMAN TO THE WEST CLYDE LITTLE FIELD MANOR ROAD TO THE SOUTH.

AND TO THE EAST.

THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, RAISE YOUR HAND.

THOSE OPPOSED, SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED.

JUST ANNOUNCED.

I WILL.

I'M GOING TO SHARE MY SCREEN.

AND WE ARE GOING TO SEE THIS CHANGE IN REAL TIME ON THE MAP.

I WANT TO SAY, I AM USING A SOFTWARE THAT HAS NOT MR. CORBELS OFFICIAL SOFTWARE.

SO THIS IS A SHOWED.

IT LOOKS LIKE ON A MAP AND GET A GENERAL NEW POPULATION, UM, IN REAL TIME.

AND THEN WE'LL RECESS.

MR. KORBEL WE'LL MAKE THOSE CHANGES ON HIS OFFICIAL SOFTWARE.

AND THAT IS WHAT WE WOULD GO BY.

SO FOR THOSE WHO ARE SEEING US THROUGH LIVE STREAM ON FACEBOOK, BY THE WAY, YOU WILL SEE THIS PURPLE DOT I'M LIKE, AM I SHARING THIS? THERE YOU GO.

IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A LAG.

YOU'LL NOTICE THIS PURPLE AREA IS WHAT WE HAVE JUST MOTIONED AND APPROVED.

THAT IS NOW, UM, THE LBJ LIBRARY FROM DISTRICT NINE TO DISTRICT ONE, NO POPULATION CHANGE.

THANK YOU GUYS FOR YOUR CONSOLE IS THE NEXT RECOMMENDATION IS PUT UP BY BEST SHERIFF GONZALEZ, UH, REGARDING DISTRICT NINE AND DISTRICT 10 BY CERTAIN SELLERS.

THANK YOU.

MADAM CHAIR, I MOVE THAT.

WE SHIFT VTD 2, 1 4 FROM ITS CURRENT PLACE IN DISTRICT NINE INTO PROPOSED DISTRICT 10.

THIS ENCOMPASSES, UM, THE BIKER WOODS NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND IT'S A SHIFT OF APPROXIMATELY 3,600 RESIDENTS SECOND.

OKAY.

IT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER BLANK TO MOVE VTD TWO 14 INTO DISTRICT 10.

UH, THIS IS THE BREAKER WOODS NEIGHBORHOOD.

YEAH.

JUST WANT TO CONFIRM, BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT PIKER WAS, WAS ONE OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT SPLIT BETWEEN TWO 14 AND TWO 50.

SO CAN YOU LET US KNOW, JUST CONFIRM THAT THIS WOULD CONTAIN ALL OF THE BREAKER WAS NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU FOR THAT CLARIFICATION COMMISSIONER FOLK ON, UM, TWO 14 COM ENCOMPASSES A MAJORITY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THE FOLLOWING MOTION WILL ENSURE ALL OF IT IS ON THE SPREADSHEET.

OKAY.

UM, I DON'T SEE THAT HAPPENING BECAUSE, SORRY, BECAUSE, WELL, LET ME EXPLAIN.

SO FOR MOVING TO 14 TO DISTRICT 10

[00:30:01]

AND THEN TWO 50 TO DISTRICT NINE, THEN THAT MEANS THAT IT'S IN, CAN WE TURN OFF WHATEVER'S HAPPENING IN THAT CORNER? UM, I JUST, I NOT UNDERSTANDING ON, YOU'LL SEE, ON THE SPREADSHEET, WE'RE MAKING A SPLIT A BT DUE TO TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD.

AGAIN, TRUST ME WHEN I SAY IT, THAT IT WILL BE COVERED IN THESE NEXT TWO MOTIONS.

I'D RATHER SEE, I'D RATHER BE ABLE TO BE EXPLAINED RATHER THAN TAKING IT WITH ALL DUE RESPECT.

I'D RATHER LOOK AT IT.

CAUSE I HAVEN'T LOOKED AT THIS IN DETAIL RATHER THAN BLAMING.

IT DOESN'T MATTER THAT I DID.

WHAT MATTERS IS THAT I'M ASKING FOR THAT EXPLANATION.

NOW THIS IS PART OF OUR DISCUSSION, CORRECT, BUT IT'S OKAY.

SO PARKER WOODS IS CURRENTLY ENCOMPASSED IN VTD TWO 14 AS WELL AS TWO 50.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND LOOK AT THAT ON THE MAP AS PART OF THE DISCUSSION.

PERFECT.

IF I SHARE UP DALLAS COULD JUST SHOW ON HIS SHARED SCREEN WHERE THAT IS, THIS WILL BE A CHANGE IN REAL TIME, NOT A CHANGE THAT'S APPROVED SO WE CAN GO BACK, BUT I'M GOING TO SHOW VTD TWO 14 AND I'M SWITCHING THAT FROM DENYING TO DTN, THE CURRENTLY VTB IS IN TO DISTRICT NINE S SWITCH WOULD PUT IT IN DISTRICT 10.

AND THE PART THAT IS NOT NOW SHADED PINK, THAT AT LEAST IS THE VTB AND, UH, THE MOTION CURRENTLY.

SO IT LOOKS ON THE MAP THAT YOU HAVE PART OF TWO 50, ALSO PINK YOU 50 AS PINK AS ACCORDING TO OUR PRELIMINARY MAP.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE? OKAY.

THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT VTD TWO 14 IS MOVED INTO DISTRICT 10, BEING THE BRAGGER WOODS NEIGHBORHOOD BACK IN DISTRICT 10, THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

RAISE YOUR HAND.

OKAY.

THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED CHAIR COMMISSIONER.

YEAH.

I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY THAT WHEN WE DO HAVE IT OPEN FOR DISCUSSION, IT ACTUALLY IS FOR DISCUSSION.

I DON'T APPRECIATE BEING TOLD THAT I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO, I HAVE DONE A LOT OF HOMEWORK ON THIS AND I SENT RECOMMENDATIONS AND I JUST WANT TO STATE THAT, LIKE, I DON'T APPRECIATE THE WORD, HOW VICE-CHAIR GONZALEZ SPOKE TO ME.

I'M ASKING A QUESTION ABOUT CITIZEN FEEDBACK, WHICH I RESEARCHED IN A LOT OF DETAIL AND I'D LIKE TO MAINTAIN A LEVEL OF RESPECTABILITY AND THESE DISCUSSIONS WE WILL LOOK AT THE MAP THROUGH EACH OF THESE DISCUSSIONS THROUGH EACH OF THE MOTIONS.

OKAY.

SO THE NEXT THING ON THE LIST HERE IS FROM DISTRICT 10 TO DISTRICT NINE, VICE CHAIR CONZALEZ WILL HANDLE, UH, THIS MOTION AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

MA'AM SIR.

THIS MOTION IS TO SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD, NORTH OF ENFIELD ROAD, UM, WOULD GO INTO DETACHMENT AND SOUTH OF ENFIELD ROAD WITHIN TWO 50 WOULD GO INTO DENYING I'LL SECOND THAT, OKAY.

IT IS MOVED AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER YE TO SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD.

OKAY.

YEAH.

PER MR. REYNOLDS, I BELIEVE A TESTIMONY.

THERE IS A SMALL PORTION OF TWO 50, WHICH ON THE MAP IS ACTUALLY 15TH STREET, BUT I BELIEVE ACCORDING TO HIS TESTIMONY, HE WOULD LIKE THAT INCLUDED.

SO IF WE'RE SAYING INFIELD ROAD, I WANT TO SPECIFY THAT

[00:35:01]

IT WOULD GO FROM THE INFIELD ROAD AND THE BOUNDARY WOULD BE LAMAR BOULEVARD.

RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT ON THE MAP VICE-CHAIR CONSOLE IS TO MAKE SURE THAT IT GETS TO LAMAR BOULEVARD.

WELL, VICE CHAIR GONZALEZ IS BARKING ON THAT MAP.

UM, MR. CORBELL, I WANT TO CLARIFY, UH, THAT WE WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO SEE THESE CHANGES WITH YOUR MAP THIS EVENING.

COULD YOU TURN YOUR MICROPHONE ON? I'M SORRY.

AS SOON AS WE'RE DONE HERE, WE'RE GOING I'LL, I'LL MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE ALL ON HERE AND THEN, UM, AND THEN WE CAN HAVE IT AVAILABLE.

OKAY.

AND THAT WILL BE YOU THIS EVENING.

YES.

OKAY, GREAT.

THANK YOU.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND BELIEVE.

I HAVE IT SHOWN CORRECTLY ON THE MAP.

WE SEE THAT THE BLUE AREA GOES INTO LAMAR ONLINE.

I'M SEEING THAT THERE'S A PORTION IT'S, UM, KINGSBURY PARKWAY, WEST 15TH STREET AND PEACE PARK THAT LOOKS LIKE IT'S IN TWO 50.

AND SO I WANT TO ENSURE THAT WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT NORTH OF INFIELD, THAT THAT NEIGHBORHOOD IS INCLUDED AND I CAN'T SEE IT ON YOUR MAP.

THERE'S NO STREETS OR THERE'S THERE'S I CAN'T, I DON'T KNOW WHERE PEACE PARK IS THERE BASED ON THE TESTIMONY, IF WE FEEL THAT THIS BOUNDARY FROM ENFIELD SHOULD GO INTO LAMAR, THIS MAP DOES SHOW IT GOING INTO LAMAR.

CAN I, UM, PROPOSE AN AMENDMENT THAT IT IS, UM, NORTH OF INFIELD ROAD, NORTH OF WEST 15TH STREET TO LAMAR.

JUST SO WE'RE EXTRA COVERED.

CAN YOU REPEAT THAT ONE MORE TIME? I'M ACTUALLY TRYING TO FIND, SO WHAT IS THE ACTUAL MOTION AS IT STATED? COULD YOU REPEAT IT FOR ME? THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT, UM, BTD TWO 50 IS SPLIT AT ENFIELD ROAD.

SO MY AMENDMENT WOULD BE THAT IT'S SPLIT AT INFIELD ROAD, CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET UNTIL LAMAR BOULEVARD.

LET ME MAKE SURE I CAN REPEAT THAT BACK TO YOU.

SO YOU WANT IT, UM, DO YOU WANT TO INSERT LANGUAGE INTO THE MOTION AS, AS YOUR AMENDMENT, CORRECT? UM, IT WOULD BE TO ADD, UM, I CAN, I, I'M JUST GOING TO REPEAT THE WHOLE THING.

SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT INFIELD ROAD, ADDING, CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET UNTIL LAMAR NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND? OKAY.

SO, UM, IT IS MOVED AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER BLANK TO, UM, INSERT THE WORDS, UM, UNTIL ADDING, CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET, OR I'M SORRY, ADDING, CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET, UM, UNTIL LAMAR AND BOULEVARD, UM, TO THE MOTION OF SPLITTING BTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD.

SURE.

IT'S ACTUALLY NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S GOING TO BE

[00:40:01]

IMPORTANT WHEN WE FILED THIS COMMISSIONER BLANK.

I'D LIKE TO MOVE THE QUESTION ON THE AMENDMENT.

UH, SO THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE AMENDMENT THAT WE INSERT THE WORDS, UM, ADDING, CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET UNTIL NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD, UH, TO THE MOTION, UM, OF SPLITTING BTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD.

THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, RAISE YOUR HAND.

OKAY.

THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT AND THE AMENDMENT IS ADOPTED.

SO AGAIN, THE QUESTION IS NOW ON, UM, THE MAIN MOTION AS AMENDED TO, UH, SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD, ADDING A CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET UNTIL NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD, COMMISSIONER BLANK, JUST SORT OF IN A GENERAL RESPONSE TO ALL THE TESTIMONY WE RECEIVED THIS EVENING, YOU KNOW, THIS IS SOME, I THINK REALLY GOOD WORK BY OUR COMMISSIONERS TO DO SOMETHING THAT WE SORT OF AVOID DOING GENERALLY, WHICH IS TO SPLIT VOTING PRECINCTS.

AND WE'RE DOING A VOTING PRECINCTS IN THIS CASE AND THROUGH THESE MOTIONS IN ORDER TO KEEP THE NEIGHBORHOODS TOGETHER THAT WE'VE HEARD A LOT OF FEEDBACK FROM.

SO THAT'S WHY WE'RE MOVING FROM THAT OR NO THAT'S OKAY.

SO ANYWAY, I JUST WANT TO COMMEND, UH, COMMISSIONER GONZALEZ AND SUPPORT THE MOTION.

I'D LIKE TO MOVE QUESTION, MOVE THE QUESTION BY CHERYL GONZALEZ.

I THINK I NEED A LITTLE BIT OF CLARIFICATION HERE AND I SEE THE GENTLEMAN WHO MADE THE, HIS TESTIMONY TO KIND OF SHAKE HIS HEAD.

NO, AT US THAT WE'RE DOING SOMETHING THAT IS, UM, A LITTLE BIT INCORRECT AND NOT WITH THE INTENTION OF EMISSION.

UM, WHAT I AM SEEING IS THAT ENFIELD DOES GO A LITTLE SOUTH AS A SNAP, THIS LITTLE POINT THAT YOU'LL SEE ON THAT LITTLE MAP, THAT PINK POINT.

UM, SO ENFIELD STILL CONTINUES AND THEN IT HITS THE MAR OLD INFIELD ROAD DOES INCLUDE THAT LITTLE PIECE ABOVE IT.

SO THE MOTION THAT IT CURRENTLY IS, IT'S SAYING THAT WE SHOULD CONTINUE DOWN AND FILL TWO 15.

THAT IS NOT, THAT IS NOT THE INTENTION OF THE MOTION.

AND I'M WONDERING IF, UM, WE CAN CALL ON A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC FOR ANY CLARIFICATION HERE.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS ON THE MAP.

IS THERE A WAY TO SHOW THAT IN LIFETIME CHAIR, COMMISSIONER, THAT THE ALCON YEAH.

I'M REFERENCING THE CITY MAP.

UM, AND THAT IS WHAT I'M SEEING.

I ALSO HAVE SEVERAL TIMES DRIVEN DOWN IN FILLED ROAD.

I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE TO WEST 15TH.

UM, THAT'S ALSO THE AUSTIN MARATHON HILL OF DEATH.

SO I HAVE STARED AT THAT SIGN IN GRIEF MANY TIMES.

THANK YOU.

UH, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS ON THE MAP AS PART OF OUR DISCUSSION.

YEAH.

UH, SO IS IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO GET CLARIFICATION FROM MR. CHRISTIANSON OR IS IT NOT APPROPRIATE, MR. CHRISTIANSON? DO YOU HAVE SOME WORDS ABOUT THIS AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION SHARE, GO AHEAD AND TAKE TWO MINUTES.

OUR OLD INFILL NEIGHBORHOOD TAKES GOES ALL THE WAY TO INFIELD ROAD, WHICH MEANS THAT LITTLE SECTION THAT THE TIP OF THE BOOT, SO TO SPEAK IS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

THOSE PEOPLE ARE GO, GO TO ALL OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD EVENTS.

SO BY DIVIDING IT AT 15TH STREET, YOU ARE, YOU'RE PUTTING A PORTION OF THE PEOPLE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, UH, IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT DISTRICT.

THAT 15TH STREET IS NOT THE DIVIDING LINE OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

THE LITTLE BOTTOM TIP AS IT'S DRAWN UP HERE IS, UM, IS THAT'S ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF 15TH STREET IS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

THOSE PEOPLE THERE COME TO ALL OF OUR EVENTS.

THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIANSEN, A QUESTION FOR MR. CHRISTIANSEN CHAIR.

YES, SIR.

AS YOU SEE IT ON THE MAP HERE, AT LEAST WITH THE BOOT, DOES THIS SEEM CORRECT? THAT'S THE BOUNDARIES OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION? 15 15TH STREET CUTS A PORTION OF OUR

[00:45:01]

NEIGHBORHOOD, ONLY A SMALL PORTION, BUT THOSE PEOPLE GO TO ALL THE NEIGHBORHOOD EVENTS.

SO IT WOULD BE, IF YOU WANT TO KEEP A NEIGHBORHOOD INTACT, YOU WOULD MAKE THE SOUTHERN BOUNDARY TO BE INFIELD ROAD WHERE IT JOINS LAMAR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

SIR, COULD YOU VERIFY THAT THE STREET THAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT IS A PARKWAY AND FIELD CONTINUING TO PARKWAY UNTIL NORTH OF YES.

IT'S, IT'S A PART OF THE PROBLEM IT'S BEEN BECAUSE PEOP WHEN 15TH STREET WAS THERE.

OKAY.

IT WAS BUILT IN THE SIXTIES.

UH, THE NEIGHBORHOOD WAS, YOU GOT INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD BY COMING UP FROM INFIELD ROAD AT LAMAR.

UM, THE, A LOT OF PEOPLE VIEW THAT AS KIND OF THE ENTRANCE INTO PEACE PARK AND, UH, IT'S NOT 15TH STREET, 15TH STREET WAS BUILT LATER.

SO THE NEIGHBORHOOD BASICALLY HAD ITS BOUNDARIES AS INFIELD ROAD DOWN IN THAT LITTLE TIP OF THE BOOT AND PARKWAY IS ALL A PARKWAY IS, IS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

YEAH.

I SEE THE ISSUE.

I SEE THE ISSUE, WHICH IS INFIELD GOES, AND YOU CAN EITHER SPLIT IT ON 15TH OR IT GOES DOWN TO PARKWAY.

SO IF WE LEAVE IT AS IN BUILD ROAD, UM, THOSE MAYBE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 HOUSES ON PARKWAY, AREN'T GOING TO BE INCLUDED IN DISTRICT THE SAME DISTRICT.

SO I THANK YOU.

UM, COMMISSIONER KEY FOR HELPING ME UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT YEAH, IT'S THAT INFIELD MEETS PARKWAY, NOT NORTH LAMAR.

AND SO THE HOUSES BETWEEN PARKWAY AND SHOAL CREEK, IT'S UNCLEAR TO ME HOW THEY WILL BE IMPACTED IN THIS BECAUSE THEY'RE A PART OF TWO 50 RIGHT NOW.

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU WANTED TO SHOW US? YEAH, JUST PULLED UP A GOOGLE MAP VERSION OF, OF, OF OUR DISCUSSION RIGHT NOW.

SO AS YOU'LL SEE, AND FIELD DOES EXTEND A LITTLE BIT UNTIL THIS POINT OF WINSTON INTERIOR DESIGN, AND THEN IT DOES GO INTO PARKWAY.

SO WE WOULD, WE SHOULD AMEND THIS MOTION TO INCLUDE THAT IT GOES FROM ENFIELD TO PARKWAY AND KNAPP NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD TO ENCOMPASS THE ENTIRETY OF THE OLD INFIELD NEIGHBORHOOD, WHICH THE INTENTION OF THIS MOTION IS TO DO JUST THAT.

SO MAYBE AMENDING THE CURRENT AMENDMENT ON THE, I BELIEVE THAT AN AMENDMENT CAN BE AMENDED, BUT COMMISSIONER CAMBO, COULD YOU SPEAK TO THAT? UM, SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I DEFINITELY WANT TO DOUBLE CHECK IF ANYONE ELSE KNOWS, BUT FROM WHAT I REMEMBER NOW THAT WE'VE ADOPTED THIS AMENDMENT, NOW IT'S THE MAIN MOTION SO WE CAN AMEND IT, BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO BE LIKE A DOUBLE AMENDMENT.

SO IT WOULD BE AN AMENDMENT TO THE MAIN MOTION AT THIS POINT, ESSENTIALLY.

IT IS THE MAIN MOTION.

RIGHT? GOTCHA.

COMMISSIONER BLANK.

ALL RIGHT.

SO IF I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY, I CAN PROPOSE AN AMENDMENT RIGHT NOW TO THE MAIN MOTION THAT WE'VE, THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN AMENDED TO BASICALLY, UH, ESSENTIALLY WORK OVER THIS 15TH SECTION AND BASICALLY REPLACE IT WITH PARKWAY.

SO LET'S, CAN YOU READ THE MOTION BACK TO ME AS IT CURRENTLY STANDS CHAIR? YES.

EMOTION IS, UM, THAT WE SPLIT BTD TWO 50 AT ANFIELD ROAD, UM, CONTINUING TO WEST 15TH STREET UNTIL NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

OKAY.

SO THEN I WOULD, UH, AMEND THAT TO SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD, CONTINUING ON TO PARKWAY TO NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

IS THAT, DO YOU FEEL LIKE THAT'S ENCOMPASSED THAT CORRECTLY? YES.

OKAY.

OKAY.

IT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER HARDEN.

THAT'D BE SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT ANFIELD ROAD, CONTINUING TO PARKWAY TWO NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE? OKAY.

THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT WE SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT AND FIELD ROAD, CONTINUING

[00:50:01]

TO PARKWAY TO NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

RAISE YOUR HAND THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO, YOU GUYS HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED THE NEXT ITEM ON THIS SPREADSHEET.

I'M SORRY.

GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER BLINK, PARLIAMENTARY.

I BELIEVE THAT WE JUST DID A MOTION ON THE AMENDMENT.

SO NOW I'M SORRY.

YOU ARE CORRECT.

THAT WAS JUST THE, UH, THE AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION.

SO NOW THE QUESTION NOW, THE QUESTION IS TELL ON THE MAIN MOTION, UH, THE, UH, UH, LET'S SEE HERE.

SO THE MAIN MOTION IS TO SPLIT BTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD, CONTINUING TO PARKWAY TO NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

SO THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, RAISE YOUR HAND.

THANK YOU TO CLARIFY COMMISSIONER DEMPSEY.

UM, THE, THE LAST VOTE WAS JUST TO ADD THAT AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION AND NOW WE ARE, UH, MOVING THE MOTION.

WE'RE ACTUALLY MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS.

YES.

OKAY.

UM, SO I'LL, I'LL REPEAT IT ONE MORE TIME, BECAUSE I THINK, UH, ONE OF OUR COMMISSIONERS WAS, UM, YOU KNOW, JUST WANT TO GET ALL OF OUR BASES COVERED HERE.

SO, UH, THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT WE SPLIT VTD TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD, CONTINUING TO PARKWAY TO NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

RAISE YOUR HAND.

OKAY.

THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED.

THANK YOU FOR THAT CORRECTION COMMISSIONER BLANK.

THE NEXT ITEM ON THE LIST IS A MOVE FROM DISTRICT.

I'M SORRY.

COMMISSIONER FALCO.

GO AHEAD.

I GUESS I'M ALSO THE AMENDMENT WE JUST, OR SORRY, THE MOTION WE JUST APPROVED IT.

DIDN'T WE, WE VOTED TO SPLIT TWO 50, BUT WE DID NOT VOTE ON IF WE WERE MOVING THAT ONE PART OF THAT DISTRICT.

SO JUST TO CLARIFY, THE PORTION NORTH OF INFIELD ROAD IS CURRENTLY WHICH DISTRICT IS IT IN CURRENTLY AND IS THAT WHERE IT'S STAYING? SO IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S IN DISTRICT 10 CURRENTLY JUST TO ANSWER THE COMMISSIONER.

SO THE MOTION HAS PASSED, UH, IN CURRENTLY THAT EFFECT IS NORTH OF ENFIELD ROAD TO PARKWAY TO NORTH LAMAR NORTH OF THAT WOULD GO INTO OR IT WOULD REMAIN IN 10 AS PROPOSED BY OUR PRELIMINARY MAP, SOUTH OF ENFIELD WOULD GO INTO DENAI AND TO BE CLEAR, IT IS LISTED IN THE NOTES.

SO I CAN JUST READ THAT OUT LOUD, QUICKLY FOR EVERYONE'S CLARIFICATION.

UM, SO THIS IS TO KEEP BREAKER WOODS AND OLD END FIELD TOGETHER IN DISTRICT 10.

SO NORTH OF ENFIELD, INDUSTRY 10, UH, 10,000, I'M SORRY, 1009 93 RESIDENTS, AND THEN SOUTH OF ENFIELD AND DISTRICT NINE, 6,322 RESIDENTS.

SO I'M JUST NOT SURE THAT WE ACTUALLY OFFICIALLY MOVED THAT FROM DISTRICT 10 TO DISTRICT NINE.

THAT'S MY CONCERN.

WE HAVE SPLIT VTD TWO 50, EVERYTHING NORTH OF THAT, BASED ON OUR MOTION, WE'LL BE IN DISTRICT 10.

I DON'T BELIEVE LEAVE.

THE MOTION MENTIONED DISTRICT 10.

THE MOTION ONLY MENTIONED THE SPLITTING.

I THINK WE NEED ANOTHER MOTION.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION? I'LL MAKE THE MOTION.

I MEAN, I UNDERSTAND THE TECHNICALITY OF THE MOTION WAS TO SPLIT TWO 50 AT, UM, AND FIELD, BUT I GUESS IN, IN THE MOTION IT WAS NOT SPECIFIED WHAT EFFECT THAT WOULD HAVE.

SO I WOULD MOTION THAT NOW WITH THE SPLIT OF VTD, TWO 50 AT ENFIELD ROAD THAT NORTH, THE NORTH PART OF VTD, TWO 50 NORTH OF ENFIELD WOULD REMAIN IN D 10 SOUTH OF INFIELD,

[00:55:03]

UM, WOULD GO INTO D NINE.

OKAY.

IT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER YE THAT THE SPLIT OF BTD TWO 50 FULLY DIDN'T MOVE NORTH OF ENFIELD IN DISTRICT 10 AND SOUTH OF ENFIELD IN DISTRICT NINE.

SURE.

CAN YOU READ THE MOTION? I'M NOT SURE THAT THAT'S WHAT COMMISSIONER GONZALES SAID, BUT I BELIEVE THAT IS THE CORRECT MOTION.

IT HAS MOVED AND SECONDED THAT THE SPLIT OF VTD TWO 50 WILL LEAVE, UH, NORTH OF ENFIELD IN DISTRICT 10 AND SOUTH OF ENFIELD AND DISTRICT NINE.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE? OKAY.

THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT THE SPLIT OF VTD TWO-FIFTY WILLFULLY IGNORED THE THEN FIELD IN DISTRICT 10 AND SOUTH OF ENFIELD IN DISTRICT NINE.

THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, RAISE YOUR HAND, THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED.

UM, POINT OF ORDER CHAIR, GO AHEAD.

I JUST WANTED TO JUST BRING UP BASED ON, YOU KNOW, JUST BEING, TRYING TO GO THROUGH THIS BOOK AND, UM, I KNOW THERE'S SOME CONFUSION AROUND THE LANGUAGE, SO IF IT MAKES IT EASIER, PERHAPS WE CAN GET EVERYONE TO WRITE DOWN WHAT THEY'RE SAYING.

UM, I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN TAKING NOTES, BUT JUST AS THE CHAIR, YOU CAN REQUEST THAT EVERYONE WRITE THEIR, UM, MOTIONS AND AMENDMENTS AND WRITINGS.

SO THAT WAY THERE'S NO FOR THE CONFUSION.

JUST A COMMENT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THE NEXT ITEM ON THE SPREADSHEET IS A MOVE FROM DISTRICT NINE TO DISTRICT 10.

I SHARE A GONZALEZ WILL HANDLE THIS RECOMMENDATION.

THANK YOU.

I'M SURE SOMETHING I'M GOING TO GO A LITTLE SLOWER HERE.

UM, JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THIS, UM, WE'VE HEARD SOME, MY MOTION IS TO SPLIT VTD THREE 11 AT NORTH LAMAR, AND THIS WOULD BE TO ALLOW PEACE PARK WAS KNOWN AS PEACE PARK TO RESIDE IN ONE DISTRICT CURRENTLY WITH OUR MOTIONS.

IT IS SPLIT BETWEEN D NINE AND D 10.

CAN YOU REPEAT THE MOTION? LET'S SPLIT VTD THREE 11 AT NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

AND THIS WOULD PUT PEACE PARK INTO DISTRICT 10? YES.

OKAY.

IS THAT A SECOND? NO.

OR I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN AMENDMENT.

I THINK THAT IT NEEDS TO BE SECONDED BEFORE ANYTHING CAN BE AMENDED.

OH, OKAY.

IT IS MOVED AND SECONDED THAT, UH, VTD THREE 11 IS SPLIT AT NORTH LAMAR TO PUT PEACE PARK INTO DISTRICT 10 KRISHNA.

YEAH, JUST THAT THE AREA WEST OF LAMAR WOULD GO INTO DISTRICT 10.

I ALSO, I CAN I SAY ONE MORE THING TOO, IS THAT WE'RE NOT ACTUALLY SPLITTING THE VOTER TABULATION DISTRICTS.

THE COUNTY ONLY CAN DO THAT.

SO WHAT WE'RE DOING IS MOVING OUR BOUNDARIES.

I JUST, AGAIN, LIKE IF SOMEONE REVIEWS THIS, I DON'T WANT THEM TO SAY THAT WE WERE OUT OF PROCEDURE.

THANK YOU.

ARE YOU SUGGESTING AN AMENDMENT? CAN YOU STATE YOUR AMENDMENT AGAIN? OKAY.

THAT THE AREA WEST OF NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD WILL GO INTO DISTRICT 10, JUST TO BE CLEAR, YOUR AMENDMENT IS A SUBSTITUTE, CORRECT? YOU'RE SUBSTITUTING THE LANGUAGE OF THE LAST OF THE MOTION COMMISSIONER FALCON ISLE.

I'LL JUST MAKE A SUBSTITUTION THAT THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10 BE MOVED FROM

[01:00:01]

THE BOUNDARY OF TWO 14 TO NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD.

CAN YOU PLEASE WRITE THAT DOWN FOR ME SO I CAN MAKE SURE I HAVE IT CORRECT.

THANK YOU.

I'M NOT SURE.

I JUST WANT TO ASK, I FEEL LIKE I'M MAKING THIS PROCESS PERSONALLY MAKING THIS A LITTLE BIT MORE DIFFICULT.

SO I'M MAKING A MOTION TO DO AN ACTION, BUT NOT ACTUALLY ADDING ADDITIONAL DETAIL.

SO THAT WOULD MAKE THE EMOTION QUITE LONG.

UM, SO I'M WONDERING IF THERE'S A WAY TO KIND OF TAKE A STEP BACK AND TO DO A NEW MOTION THAT INCLUDES STREET BOUNDARIES, UM, FOR THE PROPOSED CHANGE, IF THAT MIGHT HELP.

SURE.

LET'S SEE WHAT COMMISSIONER FEL CALLING COMES UP WITH.

MAYBE IT WILL INCLUDE STREET BOUNDARIES.

YEAH.

SO I'M JUST GOING TO READ OFF WHAT YOU HAVE HERE.

COMMISSIONER FEL KONG.

AND, UM, THIS IS THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10 BE AMENDED SO THAT THE NEW BOUNDARY IS NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD BETWEEN WEST 24TH STREET TO THE NORTH AND WEST 15TH STREET TO THE SOUTH.

SO, UM, IF YOU COULD JUST STATE YOUR MOTION, UM, FOR YOUR AMENDMENT, YOU JUST TAKE AWAY MY NOTE.

OKAY.

SO I MOVED TO SUBSTITUTE THE STANDING AMENDMENT TO BE REPLACED AS FOLLOWS THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT STANDING MOTION, JUST TO BE CLEAR STANDING.

OKAY.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

WE'RE WE'RE AMENDING THE MOTION, NOT AN AMENDMENT JUST TO BE CLEAR.

OKAY.

SO I MOVED TO SUBSTITUTE THE LANGUAGE OF THE MOTION TO BE SUBSTITUTED WITH THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10 WILL BE AMENDED SO THAT THE NEW BOUNDARIES NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD BETWEEN WEST 24TH STREET TO THE NORTH AND WEST 15TH STREET TO THE SOUTH.

YEAH.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND? SO IT IS MOVED AND SECONDED BY VICE CHAIR CONSOLE IS TO AMEND THE MOTION BY SUBSTITUTING OF THE FOLLOWING THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10, BE AMENDED SO THAT THE NEW BOUNDARY IS NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD BETWEEN WEST 24TH STREET TO THE NORTH AND WEST 15TH STREET TO THE SOUTH.

SO THE QUESTION IS ON THE MOTION TO SUBSTITUTE.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE? OKAY.

SO THE QUESTION IS ON THE MOTION TO SUBSTITUTE, UH, THE FOLLOWING FOR THE ORIGINAL MOTION.

UM, THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10 BE AMENDED SO THAT THE NEW BOUNDARY IS NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD BETWEEN WEST 24TH STREET TO THE NORTH AND WEST 15TH STREET TO THE SOUTH.

THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, RAISE YOUR HAND THOSE OPPOSED, SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED.

SO, UH, THE QUESTION IS NOW ON THE MAIN MOTION AS AMENDED THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10, UM,

[01:05:02]

BE AMENDED SO THAT THE NEW BOUNDARY IS NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD BETWEEN WEST 24TH STREET TO THE NORTH AND WEST 15TH STREET TO THE SOUTH.

CAN WE SEE THIS ON THE MAP? THANKS.

YOU CAN TELL US, CAN YOU JUST TALK US THROUGH WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE ON THE MAP? OF COURSE, LET ME, LET ME REVERT IT BACK TO OUR MAP.

THIS IS WHAT IT CURRENTLY LOOKS LIKE ON OUR PRELIMINARY MAP.

IT'S A LITTLE HIGHLIGHTED, A LITTLE DARKER BLUE SECTION, RIGHT ON THE PINK BOUNDARY.

SO THE MOTION THAT WE HAVE PASSED NOW PUT THAT PARCEL THAT BLOCK OF, UM, THIS VOTING PRECINCT INTO DEACON NORTH OF HERE IS 24TH STREET, 15TH STREET.

AND THEN TO THE EAST, NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD, PEACE PARK IS IN ONE DISTRICT.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE? OKAY.

SO THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION THAT THE DISTRICT BOUNDARY OF DISTRICT 10 BE AMENDED SO THAT THE NEW BOUNDARIES AND ALYSSA MAR BOULEVARD BETWEEN WEST 24TH STREET TO THE NORTH AND WEST 15TH STREET TO THE SOUTH, THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, RAISE YOUR HAND.

THOSE OPPOSED, SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND THE MOTION IS ADOPTED.

ALL RIGHT.

THE NEXT ITEM IS A MOVE FROM DISTRICT EIGHT TO DISTRICT 10.

THIS RECOMMENDATION IS PUT FORTH BY COMMISSIONER VICE-CHAIR GONZALEZ.

I'LL HAVE AN EXPLAIN THE RECOMMENDATION, MADAM CHAIR, I MOVE THAT WE SHIFT, UH, AND WE'RE USING BTDS, UM, AS KIND OF REFERENCED HERE, UM, VTD 3, 1 8, VTD 3, 3 8, AND VTD 2 21 INTO DISTRICT 10 FROM DISTRICT EIGHT, COMMISSIONER YOU, IS THAT A SECOND? I'VE ACTUALLY JUST A COMMENT.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS GOING TO CLARIFY ANYTHING, IS, IS THIS ABOUT THE MOTION I WOULD ASK THAT WE MAKE SURE THAT THIS IS AN OFFICIAL MOTION BEFORE WE, UM, ENGAGE IN A DEBATE ABOUT IT.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND MINUTE? OKAY.

COMMISSIONER IN SECONDS.

SO IT IS MOVED AND SECONDED THAT, UM, VTD IS 3 18, 3 38 AND 2 21 MOVE FROM DISTRICT EIGHT TO DISTRICT 10.

I THINK THAT, UM, THE DESCRIPTIONS THAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN HERE, UH, ARE ACTUALLY QUITE GOOD.

LIKE THE, SOME OF THE AMENDMENTS THAT WE'VE MADE TO THE LANGUAGE OF THE MOTIONS ARE ALMOST AS YOU HAVE WRITTEN THEM HERE.

AND I'M WONDERING IF WE SHOULD MOVE TO MAKING THESE, THE MOTIONS AS OPPOSED TO REFERENCING THEM AS BTDS, IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE.

UM, YOU'RE PROPOSING THAT WE USE THE LANGUAGE THAT'S WITHIN THE NOTES TO MAKE THE MOTION.

YEAH.

I'M SUGGESTING THAT BECAUSE IN THE NOTES, YOU'RE VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT STREETS ARE THE BOUNDARIES AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO PROPOSE AN AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION? WELL, IF I WAS TO MAKE AN AMENDMENT, I WOULD JUST USE THE NOTES THAT YOU'VE WRITTEN HERE, WHICH IS TO USE HIGHWAY 360 AS AN IDENTIFIABLE BOUNDARY SHIFTING 2,222 RESIDENTS, UM, OVER FROM THE ENTITY 10 MR. FALCON, DID YOU EVER COMMENT? YEAH, IT WAS JUST GOING TO ADD TO THAT DISCUSSION IN THIS CASE, BECAUSE THEY'RE MOVING WHOLE VOTER TABULATION DISTRICTS, IT WORKS FINE TO MOVE THEM IT'S IN THE CASE WHEN WE'RE SPLITTING THEM, THAT WE SHOULD BE MORE CAREFUL ABOUT THE BOUNDARIES.

THAT'S MY OPINION.

I FEEL THE MOTION AS STANDS, CAPTURES WHAT WE WANT, BUT I, I GUESS

[01:10:01]

ONE QUESTION I WOULD ADD IS THAT WE LEARNED FROM THE LAST COMMISSION THAT WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THEY USE VOTER TABULATION DISTRICTS, WAS THAT WHEN THE COUNTY CHANGED THEM, THEN THE BOUNDARIES CHANGED THEM AS WELL.

SO IF THAT'S THE REASON WHY THAT HAPPENED, I AM IN AGREEMENT WITH YOUR SUGGESTION COMMISSIONER.

OKAY, COOL.

BUT THE NEXT ONE IS WE, WE SPLIT ANOTHER VTD.

SO I RECOMMEND WE, UH, USE THE NOTES, UH, AS THE MOTION ON THE NEXT ONE, MAYBE.

SO JUST TO BE CLEAR, COMMISSIONER YEAR, YOU OFFERING AN AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION.

IT SOUNDS LIKE I DON'T NEED TO AMEND IT.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE FEELS COMMISSIONER BLANK, JUST REAL QUICK.

WE HEARD A LOT OF, UH, COMMENTS ABOUT THIS AND IT INVOLVED BOTH, UH, CONTRIBUTES ALL AS MEXICAN TEACHER, UH, UH, IN OTHER COMMISSIONERS DISTRICTS ANYWAY, JUST TO GET THROUGH THIS REAL QUICK, JUST WANT TO, BECAUSE FOR THE PUBLIC RECORD HERE, BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE, A LOT OF CONCERNS ABOUT POPULATION SIZE OF A DISTRICT EIGHT AND THE SPREAD OF IT.

AND I BELIEVE THIS MOTION WOULD ADDRESS BOTH OF THESE CONCERNS.

UH, YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD EXPECT CITIZENS TO CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF THEIR PREFERENCES ON ADJACENT DISTRICTS.

I THINK THAT'S UNNECESSARY AND A LITTLE MUCH HERE.

I THINK THAT FALLS ON US, BUT I THINK THAT THIS CHANGES BOTH ACCOMMODATES THE CONCERNS WE HEARD AND MAKES THE MAPS BETTER.

SO I'M VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF THIS CHANGE TO, FOR THAT REASON.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER BLANK, CHRISTIAN.

YEAH.

IN RESPONSE TO THAT, UM, WE HEARD A LOT OF TESTIMONY ABOUT VOTER TABULATION DISTRICTS, 3 0 7 AND TWO 12.

AND I NOTED THAT THOSE ARE STAYING IN DISTRICT EIGHT.

COULD YOU SPEAK TO THAT, MR. BLANK? GO AHEAD.

UH, JUST TO CLARIFY FOR ME, UH, WHICH SINCE WE'RE, WE'RE MOVING BACK AND FORTH, I'M A LITTLE BETTER WITH THE GEOGRAPHY.

COULD YOU TELL ME WHICH WHERE THE GEOGRAPHY IS OF 3 0 7 AND THREE 12? YEAH.

SO 3, 3 0 7 IS THE AREA SOUTH OF TOWN LAKE OR LADY BEAR LAKE, UM, KIND OF, UH, WEST OF MOPAC.

AND TO BE HONEST, I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND TWO 12 ACTUALLY.

IT'S, IT'S ALSO THE AREA, UM, WEST OF THE LAKE, JUST KIND OF IT'S LIKE WESTLAW ALONG WEST LAKE DRIVE.

SURE.

YEAH, ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, IN FACT, AT LEAST HALF OF THAT WAS ALREADY INCLUDED IN DISTRICT EIGHT AND THE LAST SET OF MAPS, WHICH I THINK A LOT OF THE RESIDENTS WHO COMMENTED WANTED US TO BASICALLY MAINTAIN DISTRICT EIGHT AS IS.

SO PART OF THAT CHANGE WOULD, WOULD CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN THAT ULTIMATELY THE VTD THAT IS JUST SOUTH OF TOWN LAKE AND JUST WEST OF MOPAC WAS ALREADY IN DISTRICT EIGHT.

AND I BELIEVE I TURNED THIS OVER TO MR. GONZALEZ, THAT WE'RE ONLY TALKING ABOUT A LITTLE BIT MORE OF AN ADDITION.

AND PART OF THE RESPONSE IN THIS CASE IS JUST THE FACT THAT DISTRICT 10 IS EXTENDING FURTHER AND FURTHER TO THE NORTHWEST TO ACCOMMODATE POPULATION GROWTH IN DISTRICT SIX AND SUCH ALSO TO KEEP DISTRICT 10, SOMEWHAT GEOGRAPHICALLY COMPACT, WE'RE SHIFTING SOME VOTING PRECINCTS AROUND AND ALSO TO MAINTAIN POPULATION PARODY ACROSS THESE, WHICH IS, WHICH IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL.

AND I THINK THIS ACHIEVES THIS PRETTY WELL.

IS THAT RIGHT? I SURE THAT IS CORRECT.

YEAH.

SO JUST SO I'M CLEAR.

SO AT THE END OF THIS AMENDMENT, SHOULD IT PASS, WHERE WILL VTD 3 0 7 AND 2, 1 2 LIE, BECAUSE CURRENT, LIKE ON THE LAST MAP THAT WE PRESENTED, THEY WERE IN DISTRICT EIGHT.

CORRECT.

SO MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT ONCE WE PASS THIS, THEY WILL REMAIN IN DISTRICT EIGHT.

AND THEN MY QUESTION IS THAT'S CONTRARY IS THE REASON WHY WE'RE NOT MOVING THOSE FOUR POPULATION BALANCE.

CORRECT? YEAH.

IT ALSO HAD ACTUALLY IS IT'S FOR BALANCE.

AND ALSO TO THE EXTENT THAT, UH, THERE WERE COMMENTS ABOUT THIS, AND THIS IS, YOU KNOW, WHETHER YOU WANT TO INCLUDE THIS IN YOUR FACTORS OR NOT, PEOPLE MENTIONED THAT MEANS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THE WRAPAROUND UP THERE.

SO TECHNICALLY THIS ACTUALLY STILL KEEPS MORE OF THAT IN ONE DISTRICT, WHETHER THAT'S A VALID CONCERN, NOT THAT DOES REFLECT THE COMMENTS THAT WE GOT FROM SOME SUBSET OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAD CONCERN ABOUT THE GROWTH IN THE DISTRICT DATE SIZE.

SO TO CLARIFY, THE 3 0 7 AND THE 2 0 2, 2, 1 2 ARE NOT IN THE EAN SCHOOL DISTRICT, I'D HAVE TO GO.

AND CROSS-REFERENCE THE IN SCHOOL DISTRICT MAP FORMAT AT THIS POINT, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SEE THESE PROPOSED CHANGES ON THE MAP IF POSSIBLE, WHETHER FROM VICE-CHAIR GONZALEZ OR MR. PORTAL.

OKAY.

VICE-CHAIR GONZALEZ WILL SHOW US ON HIS MAP,

[01:15:05]

BUT I WOULD SAY THAT THE ABSOLUTE PRIMARY DRIVER HERE IS POPULATION BALANCE HAVING TO DO WITH SOME OF THE CHANGES THAT WE'RE MAKING BETWEEN NINE AND 10, BETWEEN 10 AND SIX, AND THEN TRUTHFULLY, THERE'S NOT A LOT, THERE'S NOWHERE ELSE THAT EIGHT CAN REALLY SHIFT WITH IN TERMS OF THE OTHER POPULATIONS, UH, DUE TO THE SIZE OF DISTRICT FIVE.

THAT'S GREAT.

OKAY.

THE MEETING WILL COME TO ORDER AT THE TIME OF RECESS HAS EXPIRED.

WE ARE BACK ON, UH, THE MOTION TO MOVE 3 18, 3 38 AND 2 21 FROM DISTRICT EIGHT, DISTRICT 10.

AND, UM, DURING THE BREAK WE HAD MR. CORVEL PULL UP HIS MAP TO DEMONSTRATE WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE.

SO MR. CORBELL, IF YOUR MICROPHONE IS ON, PLEASE, UM, YOU'RE WELCOME TO EXPLAIN TO THE COMMISSIONERS, UM, THE, THE CHANGE HERE THAT WE'RE WORKING WITH.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

UM, HERE IS WHAT COMMISSIONER WAS TALKING ABOUT.

THEY'RE PROPOSING TO SPLIT SPLIT A PERIOD OF, UM, BETWEEN EIGHT AND 10 LOOKS LIKE THE DISTRICT ALSO EXTENDED WESTLAKE WESTLAKE DRIVE C.

UM, SO WE WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TO MOVE FURTHER BACK.

UM, I CAN TELL YOU WHAT VTD IS, IF YOU MOVE PART OF IT, UH, IF YOU MOVE THE PART OF THE BT ,

[01:20:05]

UM, 3 38 AND DTB THREE SYSTEM THAT WILL PUT ALL OF, ALL OF THE EASE INDEPENDENT SCHOOL SCHOOLS IN THE DISTRICT IN DISTRICT 10, UM, THE WEST LAKE DISTRICT, MR. CORVEL, UNDER THIS PROPOSED CHANGE, COULD YOU TELL US WHAT THE POPULATION TOTALS FOR DISTRICT 10 AND DISTRICT IT WOULD BE? YES.

DISTRICT EIGHT 99,175 IN DISTRICT 10 UH, AND SO RIGHT NOW, THE LET'S SEE, SO REALLY IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE, THE DISTRICTS SOUTH OF THE RIVER AND WEST OF HIGHWAY 360, THOSE DISTRICTS, UH, AS I'M, IF I'M READING NOTES CORRECTLY ADDS ABOUT TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED TWENTY TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED RESIDENTS, APPROXIMATELY.

YES.

OKAY.

AND SO SHIFTING ANY MORE OF THAT WOULD BASICALLY JUST BE, YOU KNOW, IN TERMS OF FLIPPING THE OVERALL SIZE BETWEEN DISTRICT AID AND DISTRICT 10 WOULD JUST BASICALLY BE MAKING ONE, BASICALLY MOVING BETWEEN A DISTRICT THAT'S 97 99 MAKING THE OTHER DISTRICT AT 99 VERSUS 97.

YES.

ESSENTIALLY PULL BACK TO WHERE YOU START CONFIRM PLAN.

JUST WANTED TO SOME MORE POPULATION DATA FOR US WHERE ALL OF THE VPDS SOUTH OF THE RIVER, WE HAD THEM IN DISTRICT EIGHT IN OUR PRELIMINARY MAP THAT PUT THE POPULATION OF DISTRICT EIGHT AT ABOUT 101,000 AND SOME CHANGE.

IF WE WOULD HAVE REVERTED ALL OF THOSE BACK TO DISTRICT 10, THE POPULATION OF DISTRICT 10 WOULD HAVE GROWN TO OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND AS WELL BEFORE THIS CHANGE.

IF YOU LOOKED AT THE POPULATION OF DISTRICT 10 AFTER THE ADOPTIONS OF THE DOWNTOWN AREA, DISTRICT 10 WAS THAT 94,000 INDIVIDUALS.

SO A LITTLE UNDERPOPULATED.

SO WE FEEL LIKE THIS SHIFT, UH, USING 360 AS A BOUNDARY WITH EAT, WHAT KIND OF BALANCE THE POPULATIONS BETWEEN THE 10 AND THE EIGHT AS THEY CURRENTLY ARE 99,000 1 75 FOR D EIGHT AND ABOUT 97,000 1 66 FOR DTN CONDITION FALCON.

I THINK I ALSO SEE NOW, SO WE WILL LEAVE DISTRICT TWO 12 IN DISTRICT EIGHT, WHICH IS BEANS, WHICH IS WHERE THE REST OF THE EAN SCHOOL DISTRICT IS.

AND WE'LL LEAVE 3 0 7 AND EIGHT WHERE THE REST OF THE IAN SCHOOL DISTRICT IS CORRECT.

AND THEN I DID HAVE A NOTE THAT I'M NOT SURE WE HAD MOVED 360 4.

WHAT, WHERE IS 360 4 CURRENTLY ON OUR PROPOSED MAP.

MR. CORBELL CAN SHOW THAT TO US BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONE WHERE, WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE MOTIONS, I DON'T THINK THAT I'M NOT SURE THAT WE MOVED IT AS WE INTENDED YEAH.

IT'S JUST LIKE A SMALL PART OF IT.

LIKE MOST OF IT'S UNINCORPORATED, BUT IT'S A VERY SMALL PART.

MM.

ALL RIGHT.

360 4.

IS THIS PIECE DOWN HERE AT THE BOTTOM? THAT'S THAT IS PART OF,

[01:25:01]

UM, I THINK THERE'S NO POPULATION IN THAT AREA, IN THE CITY OF BOSTON, BUT CHECK.

YES.

OKAY.

THERE'S ALSO, THERE'S THAT LITTLE AREA.

AND THEN THERE'S THE LITTLE SPIKE, A LITTLE FURTHER NORTH, WHICH AT LEAST ACCORDING TO THIS MAP, WHICH WE'VE BEEN TOLD COULD HAVE SOME INACCURACIES HAS SOME PARTS.

SO MY CONCERN IS JUST THAT WE, THIS WAS IN DISTRICT 10, I BELIEVE IN THE PRELIMINARY MAP, WE MOVED INTO DISTRICT EIGHT AND I DON'T THINK WE OFFICIALLY MOVED IT BACK TO DISTRICT TENS.

SO JUST WANT TO CONFIRM WHERE WE INTEND THAT TO BE, AND THAT WE HAD THE PROPER MOTIONS TO SUPPORT THAT, JUST TO BE CLEAR THAT EVERYTHING SOUTH OF THE RIVER WASN'T DISTRICT DATA AND THE PLURAL PRELIMINARY MAP THAT WE RELEASED.

AND SO NOW IF WE'RE MOVING ANYTHING BACK, WE'RE MOVING BACK INTO DISTRICT 10, NATHAN, THAT WE DON'T TOUCH REMAINS IN DISTRICT AIDS.

RIGHT? CORRECT.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS, BUT MY THING WAS THAT WHEN WE HAD THE MOTIONS LAST TIME, WE DID NOT INCLUDE 360 4.

AND SO I POINTED THAT OUT AFTER THE MEETING.

SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE USE THIS TIME TO CORRECT IT BEFORE WE HAVE TO GO INTO SOME KIND OF LEGAL THING.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER FOLK ON, JUST TO CLARIFY COMMISSIONER CLEANSE QUESTIONS, MR. CORBELL, SIR, CAN WE VERIFY THAT THERE IS NO POPULATION WITHIN THE VTD OF 3, 6, 4 THAT IS CURRENTLY SHADED GRAY FOR DISTRICT EIGHT? THIS, THIS IS THE, THIS IS THE PIECE OF 360 4 OF THE 10, THEIR POPULATION IS ACCORDING TO THIS, THE BLACK POPULAR.

UM, SO WE'RE GOING TO WANT TO FINISH THIS MOTION, JUST, JUST, UM, TO CLARIFY, AND THEN WE CAN, IF WE NEED TO WORK WITH VTD 360 4, THAT COULD BE A SEPARATE MOTION.

UM, SO TO BE CLEAR THOUGH, THAT SECTION OF 360 4, THAT IS IN DISTRICT EIGHT, DOES NOT HAVE POPULATION, BUT WE WOULD STILL WANT TO INCLUDE IT AS PART OF DISTRICT EIGHT.

THERE'S ANOTHER SMALL LITTLE PORTION.

LIKE IT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE WEST VIRGINIA.

THAT'S AWESOME.

THAT'S AWESOME.

IT DOES LOOK LIKE WEST VIRGINIA.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DEBATE ABOUT MOVING THESE THREE BTDS FROM DISTRICT EIGHT TO DISTRICT 10.

OKAY.

THE QUESTION IS ON THE ADOPTION OF THE MOTION.

THAT'D BE TTD THREE 18 VTD 3 38 AND V 2221 MOVED FROM DISTRICT EIGHT TO DISTRICT 10, UTILIZING THE HIGHWAY 360 AS AN IDENTIFIABLE, BOUNDARY THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

RAISE YOUR HAND.

CAN I HAVE, UM, PUNISHMENT HELD IT ON UP ON THE SCREEN.

I CANNOT SEE HER AT THE MOMENT.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE I GET HER VOTE.

OH, IS SHE NOT ON THERE ANYMORE? OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, SHE HASN'T WITH THE LIVESTREAM, SO, UM, WHAT IS YOUR PHONE? OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UH, THOSE OPPOSED SAY NO, THE AYES HAVE IT.

AND EMOTION IS ADOPTED.

THE NEXT ITEM ON THE LIST IS A MOVE FROM DISTRICT THREE TO DISTRICT NINE.

UM, AND COMMISSIONER
