ANY QUESTIONS ON THE AGENDA? I HAVE A QUESTION.

OKAY.

UH, LET'S START WITH COMMISSIONER PRAXIS AND THEN WE'LL GO TO COMMISSIONER TUFTS.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO MY QUESTION IS REGARDING, UH, THE REQUEST BY MR AND THE CONTACT TEAM, UM, WOULD NOW BE AN APPROPRIATE TIME TO DISCUSS THE POSTPONEMENT DATE FOR ITEM B 21 OR WHEN WOULD BE THE RIGHT TIME TO DO THAT.

SO, UH, IN DISCUSSIONS WITH MR. RIVERA, UH, WHAT WE'VE DECIDED IS WE WILL, WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE IT ON JANUARY 11TH AND WE WILL THE NEIGHBORHOOD WE'LL LIKELY ASK FOR IT JANUARY 25TH, AND WE'LL HAVE A DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT, UH, DISCUSSION ITEM AT THAT TIME.

IS THAT, UM, IS THAT GOOD? SO THE NEIGHBORHOOD WILL HAVE A CHANCE, UH, ON THE 11TH, UH, TO REQUEST A POSTPONEMENT TO JANUARY 25TH.

AND THEN WE'LL TAKE THAT UP AS A DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT ITEM, IF IT'S POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE DATE.

NOW, IT SEEMS LIKE THAT WOULD GIVE THE COMMUNITY A BIT MORE BREATHING ROOM.

AND I JUST REALLY DO UNDERSTAND THE CONCERNS OF THE HOLIDAYS COMING UP AND EXPECTING, YOU KNOW, UNPAID VOLUNTEERS TO HAVE TO GATHER ALL THIS INPUT FROM THE COMMUNITY AND MAKE SURE THE NEIGHBORS, YOU KNOW, HAVE THEIR SAY, OKAY, UH, I UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERNS.

I GUESS THE, THE TACK THAT WE'RE TAKING HERE IS BECAUSE OF A LIKELY, VERY HEAVY AGENDA.

UH, WE WOULD GET INTO A DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT CASE RIGHT NOW, I GUESS IF WE TAKE THIS UP AND WE WERE TRYING TO AVOID, UH, ADDING ANOTHER DISCUSSION CASE, I'LL BE SHORTER.

UH, IT WOULD STILL TAKE TIME AWAY FROM HER AGENDA, UM, THAT THAT'S WHY, UM, NO DISRESPECT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE JUST HAVE A REALLY BUSY EVENING.

UM, SO IF YOU, IF I WOULD LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND, AND, UM, KEEP THIS ON JANUARY 11TH, AND WE'LL JUST PRETTY MUCH DO THIS THAT DAY AND, UH, TAKE THIS UP ON JANUARY 11TH IS A DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UH, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

UM, I GUESS I WOULD JUST WOULD, I, I WOULD ALSO WANT TO POSSIBLY MAKE THIS A DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT NOW.

I HOPE THAT IT WOULDN'T HAVE TO GO THAT LONG.

[00:20:01]

OKAY.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, IT MIGHT TAKE A FEW EXTRA MINUTES FOR US ON A LONG NIGHT TONIGHT, BUT HAVING THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE TO COME DOWN HERE ON THE 11TH JUST TO BE TOLD, OH, ACTUALLY YOU CAN COME BACK ON THE 25TH.

I THINK THAT'S A BIGGER BURDEN THAN MAKING PEOPLE SIT THROUGH A FEW MINUTES OF DISCUSSION.

OKAY.

UM, BUT THAT, WASN'T WHAT I WAS GOING TO DISCUSS IF WE WANT TO DISCUSS THAT FIRST AND THEN I'LL OKAY.

SO, UM, I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD, OR DO THEY HAVE FOLKS HERE TO SPEAK IN, IN FAVOR OF THAT POSTPONEMENT? I JUST DON'T KNOW IF WE HAVE THE RIGHT FOLKS HERE, UH, TO MAKE THE CASE.

AND, UM, I KNOW WE HAVE MR. CANTU HERE.

UM, DO WE, UH, MR. CANTU, UM, IS, LET ME JUST ASK YOU IF YOU DON'T MIND UM, DO YOU FEEL PREPARED IF WE TAKE THIS DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT CASE UP NOW THAT YOU CAN SPEAK ON THE, UH, MAKE THE CASE? UM, CAUSE WE TYPICALLY ALLOW, I GUESS TWO PEOPLE, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE ELSE HERE PREPARED FOR STATEMENTS OR IF IT WOULD JUST BE YOU AND IF YOU FEEL LIKE WE, IF YOU RECOMMEND WE SHOULD GO AND TAKE THIS UP NOW.

WELL, JUST, IT WOULD BE ME, BUT JUST TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION WHILE YOU DON'T SEE ANY OTHER PEOPLE FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS BECAUSE I'VE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH INDIVIDUALS FROM THAT AREA.

BUT I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GIVE THEM DEFINITIVE INFORMATION BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T HAD ANY MEETINGS.

THERE ARE THINGS THAT ARE PENDING, FOR INSTANCE, YOU KNOW, HOW MANY UNITS ARE GOING TO BE, IS THERE GOING TO BE A GARAGE PET AREA, ET CETERA.

AND, AND SO I DON'T HAVE ANY SUPPORT, I DON'T HAVE ANY INFORMATION, UH, TO GIVE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND I HAD MENTIONED TO HIM THAT ONCE I GET THE INFORMATION, WE CAN DO A ZOOM CALL, A MEETING, ET CETERA.

AND SO THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY, CAUSE I DON'T HAVE ANY INFORMATION AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING AND, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE OF THE DELAYS OF THE HOLIDAYS AND, AND IT'S, IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT SH YOU KNOW, SHE REACHED OUT AT THE VERY LAST SECOND, BUT IT'S NOT MY FAULT.

YEAH.

I DID WHAT I DID, I GUESS.

I JUST DON'T WANT TO CREATE ANY UNFAIRNESS HERE BY TAKING THIS UP NOW.

SO IF WE DO AND WE VOTE TO, UM, YOU KNOW, KEEP IT ON THE 11TH, THEN THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT'S THE DECISION THAT WILL, UH, OR WE COULD COME OUT WITH THE DECISION FOR THE 25TH.

I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THE, WHAT WILL BE THE WILL OF THE COMMISSIONED HERE.

UM, SO WITH THAT INFORMATION, UH, IS ANY, UH, I GUESS LOOKING AROUND, DO WE WANT TO TAKE A VOTE ON WHETHER TO POST THIS TO DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT CHAIR? YES.

UM, I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE DON'T HAVE ANYONE FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD HERE.

SO IF WE KNOW A SET DATE JANUARY 11TH, THEY KNOW THAT THEY CAN COMMUNICATE WITH US VIA EMAIL, THEY CAN ATTEND IN PERSON.

UM, SO I THINK IT MIGHT BE AWKWARD TO TRY TO HAVE THAT DEBATE HERE NOW.

CORRECT.

OKAY.

SO HEARING THAT I'M A COMMISSIONER AS THOMPSON COMMISSIONER PRACTICE, UM, I MEAN, DO YOU AGREE, PERHAPS WE SHOULD WAIT TIL THE 11TH.

JUST WE CAN VOTE ON IT IF YOU WANT.

I I'LL.

YEAH.

I MEAN, I'M FINE TO WAIT UNTIL THE 11TH.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

WE'LL GO AHEAD AND KEEP THAT ON THE AGENDA FOR THE 11TH RIGHT NOW.

SO I GUESS MY OTHER COMMENT THEN WAS JUST A CLARIFICATION, THERE WERE SEVERAL ITEMS THAT SAID STAFF AND APPLICANT POSTPONEMENT, AND I GUESS I JUST GET A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THAT BECAUSE OUR, OUR STANDARD RULE IS THE APPLICANT GETS ONE POSTPONEMENT.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD GETS ONE POSTPONEMENT.

SO, YOU KNOW, TWO WEEKS FROM NOW, WHEN THE APPLICANT SAYS, I WANT A POSTPONEMENT, HAVE THEY BURNED THEIR CHANCE ON THIS ONE? OR, OR WHAT? UM, YEAH.

WHAT'S CAN WE JUST LIST IT AS A STAFF POSTPONEMENT AS OPPOSED TO A STAFF AND APPLICANT, OR DOES THIS COUNT AGAINST, UM, OKAY.

SO I GUESS I'LL JUST FOR THOSE, WE'LL JUST AMEND THE READING, UH, FOR THOSE THAT WERE STAFF AND, UH, APPLICANT, JUST MAKE THOSE STAFF POSTPONEMENT NOTED.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

OKAY.

WELL, I THINK, UH, WE NEED TO, UH, WITH ALL THAT, WE NEED A VOTE TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, APPROVE THE MINUTES AND, UH, THE CONSENT AGENDA.

DO I HAVE EMOTION MOTION BY COMMISSIONER DESIRE, SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND VOTE.

UH, LET'S SEE THOSE IN FAVOR ON THE DICE.

UH, THAT'S UNANIMOUS AND THOSE, UH, VIRTUALLY LET'S SEE, MR. HOWARD COMMISSIONER.

YANAS PALITO

[00:25:02]

THINK.

OKAY.

UH, I THINK COMMISSIONER HOWARD HAS STEPPED OUT FOR A SHORT TIME.

HE WILL BE BACK.

THANK YOU.

SO THAT IS, UH, OH, DID WE HAVE, I'M SORRY, COMMISSIONER CONLEY.

DID WE GET YOUR VOTE? I DIDN'T.

YOU DID.

OKAY.

THANKS.

SO THAT'S, UM, EIGHT AND THREE 11 TO ZERO.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

WITH THAT.

I THINK WE CAN START,

[Items B3 & B4]

UH, TAKING UP AS I SAID, B3 AND BEFORE TOGETHER, AND WE'LL START WITH THE STAFF PRESENTATIONS.

GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

I'M MARK WALTERS WITH THE HOUSING PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

I'M HERE TO PRESENT ITEM B3, A MPA 20 21 0 0 20 DOT OH ONE SHELBY LANE RESIDENCE.

THE REQUEST IS TO AMEND THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP FOR THAT AD FOR THIS SITE FROM A COMMERCIAL TO MULTI-FAMILY IS RECOMMENDED BY STAFF.

AND THAT'S IN MY PRESENTATION.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM AT THIS TIME.

GOOD EVENING, MR. CHAIRMAN COMMISSION MEMBERS.

MY NAME IS WENDY RHODES WITH THE HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

UH, THIS CASE IS THE ZONING CASES PROPOSING AND P FOR A TOTAL OF OUR UP TO 520 UNITS TO INCLUDE FOR SALE AND FOR RENT UNITS.

UH, THE CONDITIONAL OVERLAY WOULD LIMIT BUILDING HEIGHT TO 60 FEET, AND ALSO, UH, A REQUIRE CONTINUED TO REQUIRE THE 30 FOOT FIVE, THE 30 FOOT WIDE VEGETATIVE BUFFER ALONG THE WEST PROPERTY LINE.

THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING THIS CASE.

IT DOES INCREASE THE EFFORT, THE AVAILABILITY OF, UH, HOUSING IN THE AREA.

UH, THE 60 FOOT LIMIT DOES NOT EXCEED THAT ALLOWED BY ADJACENT COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTIES.

UH, THERE IS A RECENTLY APPROVED SITE PLAN FOR MULTIFAMILY AND COMMERCIAL SPACE AT THE INTERSECTION OF SHELBY LANE AND COLONIAL PARK AND TERRIO LANE.

AND, UH, THERE IS A TRANSPORTATION MEMO THAT CALLS FOR UPGRADING THE PROPERTY'S FRONTAGE ON SHELBY AND WHEAT AMAR TO AN URBAN STANDARD WITH CURB AND GUTTER, AS WELL AS RECONSTRUCTING, UH, INTERSECTIONS NEARBY, UH, AS AN UPDATE FROM LAST MONTH, I WANTED TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION THAT THE, UH, APPLICANT HAS MET WITH, UH, THE RESIDENTS OF COLONIAL TRAILS NEIGHBORHOOD AND REPRESENTATIVES OF THE CONTACT TEAM THEY MET ON, UH, IN LATE NOVEMBER, AS WELL AS LAST THURSDAY.

UH, AND THAT MEETING INCLUDED WATERSHED PROTECTION DEPARTMENT STAFF, AS IT RELATES TO LOCALIZED FLOODING ISSUES, UH, AS WELL AS WHAT HAPPENED, UH, GOING BACK TO LAST MONTH, THE, THERE ARE QUESTIONS THAT ANSWERS FROM AUSTIN ATD AND AUSTIN FIRE DEPARTMENT THAT ARE ATTACHED TO THIS REPORT.

AND, UH, WE DO HAVE BOTH AFD AND ATD IN ATTENDANCE TONIGHT, UH, REGARDING THE NATURAL GAS PIPELINE THAT IS ON THE PROPERTY.

THE APPLICANT HAS CONTINUED TO COORDINATE WITH TEXAS GAS SERVICE REGARDING RELOCATION OF THE, OF THE EASEMENT ALONG THE WEDA MART PROPERTY LINE.

THERE ARE EXHIBITS ATTACHED TO THE REPORT THAT SHOW THE EXISTING PIPELINE LOCATIONS, THE RELOCATION, AND ALSO A CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN THAT SHOWS THE RELOCATED PIPELINE, UH, AFD HAS REVIEWED THE PROPOSED ZONING.

UH, THERE ARE HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OF, OF CONCERN IN THE V IN THE VICINITY.

THESE ARE LOCATED ON COMMERCIAL OR INDUSTRIAL PROPERTIES, BUT AFD DOES NOT OBJECT TO THE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS.

UH, THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

AGAIN, WE'RE RECOMMENDING MF SIX CEO WITH A 60 FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT, A 30 FOOT 30 FOOT WIDE VEGETATIVE BUFFER, AND, UH, A TRANSPORTATION MEMO FOR THE RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING, UH, UPGRADING INTERSECTIONS AND NEARBY ROADS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UH, HAVE THE APPLICANT.

THANK YOU, CHARLES.

JUST WHAT THE, UH, UM, PUBLIC HEARING AS WELL.

AND SO MR. GLASGOW, BEFORE YOU PROCEED, UH, MR. SHEPHERD, ARE YOU PRESENT TO CHAIR? YES.

MR. , DO YOU HAVE THE DOCUMENTS THAT STAFF REFERENCE THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE BACKUP, SOMETHING ABOUT A SITE PLAN SHOWING THE GAS LINE LOCATION AND THEN RESPONSES FROM AFD? CAUSE I'M, MAYBE I'M MISSING IT, BUT, OR IF YOU HAVE A PAGE OF WHERE THAT IS IN THE BACKUP.

YEAH.

I'M, I'M LOOKING AT IT NOW TRYING TO FIND IT FOLLOWS THE, UH, TRANSPORTATION MEMO AND THE INBAR AND THE EDUCATIONAL IMPACT STATEMENT.

SO THERE'S A, UH, EXHIBIT WITH THE PIPELINE WITH THE

[00:30:01]

CURRENT PIPELINES, UH, EASEMENT RUNNING THROUGH THE PROPERTY, AS WELL AS A, UH, CONCEPTUAL RELOCATION ALONG WITH TAMARA AND SHELBY.

AND THEN ONE THAT SHOWS THE RELOCATION ALONG, UH, CONCEPTUAL RELOCATION ALONG WAY TO MARTIN SHELBY, AS WELL AS THE CONCEPTUAL PLAN OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

AND THEN I'VE INCLUDED RIGHT AFTER THAT, UH, ANSWERS, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FROM ATD AND THE, SO I SEE PAGE NUMBERS, UM, IN THE BACKUP.

SO WHAT, WHAT PAGE AT THE TOP SHARED SPEECH? 24 OF 88 AND ONWARDS 24, 24 SHOWS EXISTING BY PLANK 25 SHOWS WHERE IT WILL BE MOVED IN BLUE ON THE, ON THE BACKUP MATERIAL FOR I'M ON PAGE 56.

SO THIS IS BEFORE, YEAH.

BEFORE, BEFORE THE ZONING CASE, NOT THE NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, I'M SEEING IT NOW.

OKAY.

IT WAS, IT WAS MIXED WITH SOME OF THE PREVIOUS BACKUPS.

THAT'S WHAT, IT'S HARD TO FIND.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS MR. CARL HERSHEY PRESENT.

MR. GLASGOW.

YOU'LL HAVE A MAXIMUM 10 MINUTES.

GOOD EVENING PLANNING COMMISSION MEMBERS, ALICE GLASGOW, REPRESENTING THE APPLICANT TONIGHT.

WE'LL CONTINUE OUR DISCUSSION ABOUT SHELBY LANE RESIDENCES THAT WE DISCUSSED, UM, SEVERAL WEEKS AGO.

SO I'M GOING TO, OR ELSE IT'S NOT ADVANCING.

SO THIS SLIDE SHOWS YOU THE SURROUNDING ZONING, AND WE CAN START OFF WITH PROPERTY AT SOUTH CONGRESS AND SEND ELMO.

WE HAVE CSM ZONING THERE, AND ZONING.

I KNOW LAST TIME YOU ASKED ABOUT IS THERE WAS THERE SPOT ZONING ON OUR SIDE, BUT YOU HAVE UH, ON SOUTH CONGRESS AND ST.

ELMO, YOU HAVE LAPD TO THE NORTH.

THIS IS A TRACK THAT IS APPROXIMATELY EIGHT ACRES, THE SAME SIZE AS THIS SITE THAT HAS A 386 APARTMENTS, UH, THAT HAVE JUST BEEN COMPLETED.

IT'S PART OF THE ST.

ELMO PUBLIC MARKET AND LOFTS, AND TO THE NORTH, YOU HAVE PDA.

AND AS YOU KNOW, TDA, UH, COMBINED WITH ALLY ON THIS PROPERTIES ALLOWS RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT.

UH, UM, OUR SITE IS ZONED C S C O, AND WE'RE REQUESTING A CHANGE TO .

IT'S A COMPARISON IN ZONING.

OUR PROPOSED ZONING OF IS DOWN ZONING.

THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT THAT WE ARE PROPOSING IS 60 FEET.

ALTHOUGH ALLOWS 90 FEET OF HEIGHT, THE CURRENT ZONING OF CS ALLOWS A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 60 FEET.

SO THEREFORE WE ARE COMPARABLE THERE ON OUR PROPOSED PROJECT IS RESIDENTIAL.

IF WE WERE NOT TO BUILD A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ON THE CURRENT ZONING OF CSS, YOU COULD HAVE A HOTEL OF 800 TO 1000, UH, HOTEL UNITS, UH, FOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ON THIS SITE, WE HAVE TWO TYPES OF PRODUCTS ON, UH, FOR THE, FOR SALE UNITS.

WE HAVE 150 UNITS THAT WILL BE CONDOMINIUMS FOR SALE.

WE HAVE, UM, A SECOND BUILDING THAT IS FOR APARTMENTS FOR RENT 370 UNITS.

THE FLOW TO AREA RATIO PROPOSED UNDER THE M OF SIX IS 1.5 FOR THE ONE BEFORE THE AREA RATIO UNDER C AS ZONING'S TWO TO ONE, OUR UNIT UNITS PER ACRE ARE 65.75.

AND THAT'S WHY THE ZONING IS BEING SOUGHT.

UH, OBVIOUSLY THE CS DOES NOT ALLOW RESIDENTIAL ZONING.

SO THERE IS NO AND EQUIVALENCE THERE.

THE, WE ARE VOLUNTEERING TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR THE, FOR SALE UNITS.

WE ARE OFFERING TO DO 5% AT 80% MFI AND ANOTHER 5% AT A HUNDRED PERCENT MFI FOR THE RENT UNITS WE'RE OFFERING TO PROVIDE 10% OF THE UNITS AT 60% MFI FOR 40 YEARS FOR THE, FOR SALE UNITS THAT WILL BE AFFORDABLE FOR 99 YEARS.

WE ARE FOLLOWING ONE OF THE CITY'S REGULATIONS REGARDING AFFORDABILITY UNDER THE MF SIX ZONING DISTRICT FOR GREENFIELD PROJECTS BE IMPERVIOUS COVER UNDER ZONING FOR MF SIX IS 80% MF, UH, IMPROV PERCENT, AND THE CSR NEEDS 95%.

HOWEVER, THE WATERSHED ORDINANCE TRUMPS IMPERVIOUS COVER ZONING, IF IT'S MORE RESTRICTIVE AND UNDER THE WATERSHED REGULATIONS MULTI-FAMILY OR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT HERE WOULD BE AT 60% IMPERVIOUS COVER.

WHEREAS FOR COMMERCIAL, IF THE SITE WERE DEVELOPED AS A HOTEL, THE IMPERVIOUS COVER WOULD BE 80, 80%.

[00:35:01]

THE SITE IS CURRENTLY UNDEVELOPED AND COMPRISES EIGHT ACRES.

SO WE TALKED LAST TIME ABOUT THE CURRENT HEIGHTS OF BUILDINGS.

WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT, UM, UH, THE FACT, OR THIS WAS PRESENTED THAT THERE WERE NO BUILDINGS OVER ONE STORY.

WELL, OUR TEAM ARCHITECTURAL TEAM CREATED THIS RENDERING, THAT ACCOUNTS FOR THE PROJECTS THAT CURRENTLY EXIST ON SITE IN THE AREA.

SO AT 44 SOUTH CONGRESS, IT'S A PROPERTY THAT'S ZONED CSM UV, AND IT HAS A 275 UNITS.

AND IT'S AT 60 FEET OF HEIGHT, THE PUBLIC LOFTS, 73 HEIGHT BUILDING HEIGHT, 217 APARTMENTS.

AND THAT IS THE PROPERTY THAT IS ZONED.

THE, UH, THE, UM, S THE ST.

ELMO PUBLIC MARKET AND LOFTS THAT IS L I PDA.

AND THE PDA ALLOWS TO HAVE A MIX OF RESIDENTIAL USES INDUSTRIAL USES, AND ALSO A COMMERCIAL USES.

THE APARTMENTS THAT ARE, HAVE BEEN BUILT HERE ARE AT 60 FEET, AND THEY WILL BE READY FOR OCCUPANCY IN A FEW MONTHS, 386 UNITS ON THAT PROPERTY TO THE NORTH.

YOU CAN SEE SOME, UH, UH, GRAY PURPLE AND GREEN.

THE PURPLE IS, UH, 85 FEET.

THE, UH, GREEN IS AT 125 FEET.

I CALL THAT THE FUTURE HEIGHT OF ST.

ELMO, THOSE HEIGHTS WERE APPROVED AS PART OF THE ZONING ENABLED PLAN THAT WAS ADOPTED, UH, SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

AND THE AREA THAT IS IN DARK PURPLE IS, UM, 95 FEET.

THE AUSTIN LOFTS IS LOCATED TO ALONG AGE 35 AND BEN WHITE BOULEVARD.

AND THAT IS AT 70 FEET.

AND THAT PROPERTY IS ALSO ALLOWED TO GO UP TO 125 FEET.

SO OUR SITE IS, UM, PROPOSED TO HAVE RESIDENTIAL.

YOU CAN SEE THE OVERALL LAND USE PATTERN IN THE AREA.

SO ONCE ALL DEVELOPMENTS ARE BUILT HERE, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE OVER A THOUSAND UNITS.

THAT INCLUDES A STATION OF ST.

ELMO.

THEY JUST BROKE AROUND TO DO 136 UNITS.

SO YOU HAVE AN AREA THAT'S EVOLVING.

YOU HAVE A MIX OF LAND USES, INCLUDING HEIGHTS, JUST TO SHOW YOU THE GREEN HEIGHT AT 125 FEET THAT IS TALLER THAN C DMU ZONING.

DME ZONING ALLOWS 120 FEET OF HEIGHT.

SO YOU HAVE A RANGE OF HEIGHTS THAT WERE PLANNED THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING PROCESS.

AND, UH, YOU RECENTLY, YOU, THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECENTLY APPROVED 85 FEET ON THE PURPLE TRACK AT INDUSTRIAL BOULEVARD.

I THINK I MAY HAVE SKIPPED.

SO TO JUST SHOW YOU WHAT COULD GO ON OUR SITE, IF WE BUILT UNDER THE SEA AS ZONING, THE PIPELINE WAS SO HAVE TO BE RELOCATED.

AND THE CEO'S OWNING A HOTEL BUILDING WOULD LOOK LIKE THIS.

SO IT WOULDN'T LOOK THAT MUCH DIFFERENT FROM TWO APARTMENT BUILDINGS, OTHER THAN THE MULTI-FAMILY DEVELOPMENT.

AND THE CONDO DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE SEPARATED BECAUSE THEY'RE TWO SEPARATE BUILDINGS.

SO YOU'D HAVE A DIVIDING LINE THAT SEPARATES THE TWO.

WHEREAS WITH A HOTEL, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE ONE HOTEL ON EIGHT ACRES WITHOUT ANY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT.

OBVIOUSLY THIS IS THE, UH, EXHIBIT THAT SHOWS THE PROPOSED PIPELINE THAT WE SUBMITTED TO THE, UH, TEXAS GAS COMPANY.

THE, UM, THE GREEN IN THE BACK SHOWS THAT 30 FOOT VEGETATIVE BUFFER THAT WILL REMAIN UNDISTURBED BECAUSE THAT SETBACK IS REQUIRED UNDER THE ORIGINAL ZONING.

AND WE ARE AGREEING TO MAINTAIN THAT CONDITIONER OVERLAY AS STAFF RECOMMENDED, THE FIRST BUILDING IS THEIR PROPOSED COUNTER PROJECT.

AND THEN THE, UH, THE BOTTOM IS THE MULTI-FAMILY FOR, FOR RENT, THE PURPLE AREA, DELINEATES, WHERE THE PIPELINE IS GOING TO GO.

THE ENTIRE PURPLE AREA IS 50 FEET WIDE.

AND THAT INCLUDES WHERE THE PIPELINE IS GOING TO BE RELOCATED TO.

AND, UH, THE REQUIRED, UH, ACCESS AREAS THAT THE GAS COMPANY NEEDS.

THIS IS PRECISELY WHAT THEY HAVE APPROVED.

AND I'M GOING TO READ THE EMAIL THAT, UH, THE CASE MANAGER, INCLUDING YOUR BACKUP, IT READS IS FROM, UH, RENE PENA.

AND IT READS IN PART, WE ARE OKAY, RELOCATING ACTIVE GAS LINE WITH A TWENTY-FIVE FOOT EASEMENT ADJACENT TO THE ROUTE OF OUR LINE THAT THEN REDUCES TO 20 FEET CLOSER TO WIDMER AND SHELBY LANE.

THAT'S WHERE YOU HAVE THE ELBOW AT WAYMO AND SHELBY LANE, UH, AS SHOWN ON YOUR EXHIBIT, THE GAS LINE WILL BE 15 TO 20 FEET FROM EDGE OF BUILDING, WHICH IS FINE FOR THE CURRENT PRESSURE ON THE PIPELINE.

WE WOULD JUST NEED TO LOOK AT SPECIFICS, SUCH AS EASEMENT BEING AS A GAS DEDICATED EASEMENT ENCROACHMENTS, ET CETERA, BUT CAN LOOK INTO MORE DETAILS WHEN YOU ARE ALREADY AND HAVE QUOTE.

SO AT THE TIME OF SIPHON, WHEN WE PROCEED TO THE SITE PLAN STAGE, WE WILL BE, UM, GETTING THE GUESTS COMPETENT TO, TO REFINE THEIR APPROVALS

[00:40:01]

AND AGREEMENTS THAT THEY ENTER INTO WITH DEVELOPERS WHEN THEY HAVE TO RELOCATE A GAS LINE.

AND, UM, THAT IS, UM, THE LATEST WE HAVE FROM THE, UH, TEXAS GAS LINE COMPANY.

I AM NOT GOING TO MOVE INTO THE, UM, EXHIBITS OR SHOW YOU HOW THE EXISTING, NATURAL GAS LINE, HOW IT TRAVERSES FROM OUR SITE TO OTHER SITES IN THE AREA.

SO OUR SITE IS SHOWN HERE WITH A STAR, AND AS YOU LOOK NORTH ALL THE WAY TO SENATOR EDWARDS UNIVERSITY, THE SAME GAS LINE THAT IS GOING TO BE RELOCATED TO OUR PROPERTY, THEN EXTENDS NORTHWARD TO ALL THOSE PROPERTIES THAT YOU CAN SEE HERE.

AND I'M JUST GOING TO GO THROUGH THIS SIDE-BY-SIDE.

HE IS A PROJECT AND APARTMENT PROJECT CALLED TREMOR AT OAK BEND.

THERE IS, UM, THE SAME GAS LINE THAT EXTENDS ALL THE WAY SOUTH, ALL THE WAY NORTH AND THE SOURCE OF THIS INFORMATION IS FROM THE TEXAS RAILROAD COMMISSION.

THIS IN THE WEB, THE INFORMATION IS OBTAINED FROM THERE.

THE SAME HERE, STASSNEY WOODS APARTMENTS HERE.

YOU CAN SEE HERE, THERE'S THE SAME GAS LINE.

THE DOCK SHOWS YOU WHERE THE GAS LINE IS.

THE GREEN SHOWS YOU THE, UH, THE ACTUAL GAS LINE THAT EXTENDS FROM THE SOUTH A CLAIM AT SOUTH CONGRESS.

ANOTHER LOCATION OF THE SAME GAS LINE, NATURAL GAS LINE ST.

EDWARD'S UNIVERSITY APARTMENTS, ANOTHER LOCATION OF THE SAME GAS PIPELINE.

I WILL PAUSE HERE AND MOVE ON TO MOBILITY AND CONNECTIVITY, BECAUSE THAT'S ANOTHER AREA WE TALKED ABOUT.

UM, COMMISSION MEMBERS HAD A QUESTION ABOUT CONNECTIVITY, AND I'LL GO THROUGH THIS QUICKLY.

THE, UH, THIS EXHIBIT SHOWS YOU EXISTING SIDEWALKS.

THE BLUE LINES ARE THE EXISTING SIDEWALKS WITHIN THE COLONIAL PARK NEIGHBORHOOD FROM MARCH 35.

THE RED SHOWS THE SIDEWALK WITH THE, WE ARE GOING TO BE CONSTRUCTING ON OUR SIDE OF THE PROPERTY, ALONG WITH MR. LANE AND ALONG SHELBY LANE.

AND OF COURSE IN THE FUTURE, WHEN THE PROPERTIES TO THE EAST OF WHERE DEMAR AND SHELBY ARE DEVELOPED, THOSE SIDEWALKS ON THE EAST SIDE OF THOSE ROADS WOULD ALSO BE CONSTRUCTED BY THOSE TWO DEVELOPMENTS AS THEY OCCUR GOING NORTH ON, UH, TERRI, ELAINE AND, AND ST.

ELMO.

THE ORANGE IS PROMPTED.

THAT IS, UH, CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION BY MY CLIENT LEGACY DCS.

THEY, ORANGE IS A SIDEWALK THEY'RE GOING TO BE CONSTRUCTING.

AND WHILE THEY WERE WORKING THROUGH THE SITE PLAN WITH ATD, THEY VOLUNTEERED TO CON EXTEND THE GREEN SITE, THE AREA, THE SIDEWALK SHOWN IN GREEN THAT GOES OFF FROM THEIR PROPERTY, WHERE THEY ARE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE SIDEWALK, CONNECTING ALL TO ALL THE WAY TO SEND ELMO VOLUNTARILY SO THAT THEY COULD PROVIDE CONTINUOUS CONNECTIVITY FOR THE SHELBY LANE RESIDENCES, THE NEIGHBORS FROM COLONIAL PARK, AND THEN THEIR RESIDENTS THAT ARE GOING TO BE AT THE STATION AT ST.

ELMO.

OKAY.

WE WERE AT A TIME.

SO WHAT WE'LL DO, UH, COMMISSIONERS HAVE MORE, UM, QUESTIONS? UH, WHAT, WHAT TOPICS DID WE MISS? JUST SO WE KNOW IF WE HAVE FURTHER QUESTIONS, JUST THE LAST ITEM WAS JUST TO REALLY JUST SHOW YOU THE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS.

ONE OF THE MITIGATIONS THAT ARE GOING TO BE, IF ANYBODY HAS QUESTIONS, WE CAN BRING THIS SEGMENT UP IF THEY HAVE QUESTIONS ON THESE IMPROVEMENTS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, CHAIR NOW, OR PROCEED TO MR. MARIO, COME TO MR. CONTI.

YOU'LL HAVE FIVE MINUTES MS. LONG.

YOU'LL BE NEXT.

OKAY.

BRINGING MY POWERPOINT, PLEASE.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER MARIO CONTACT TEAM CHAIR, UH, ABOUT TO LOOK AT THIS, THIS IMAGE HERE.

THIS IS, THIS IS A DRONE RENDERING.

UH, THIS IS LIFE.

THIS IS WHAT, WHAT YOU WOULD SEE RIGHT NOW.

UH,

[00:45:01]

YOU DON'T SEE REALLY LARGE BUILDINGS AROUND NEXT, AS YOU CAN SEE, AND YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T THINK WE SAW THAT TOWARDS ALICE'S, UH, CLASS.

CO'S LESS PART OF HER POWERPOINT PRESENTATION WITH ALL THE GAS LINES AND HERS.

YOU DON'T SEE ANY LINES IN THIS ONE.

YOU DO SEE LINES.

THOSE RED LINES INDICATE WHERE THE GAS LINE IN THE MIDDLE CURRENTLY IS.

AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE LAST RED LINE AT THE VERY END OF THE TWO RED LINES, THAT'S CONCRETE.

SO MAJORITY OF THESE GAS LINES ARE GOING UNDER CONCRETE PARKING LOTS, OR THEY'RE GOING UNDER THE GRASS.

NOW, THE RENDERING THAT SHE'S TALKING ABOUT ALSO TOWARDS THE END OF HER POWERPOINT, OFF TO THE LEFT THERE AS A PROPOSED LOCATION FOR MOVING THE GAS LINE.

SO IT'S GOING TO GO KIND OF ALMOST PARALLEL WITH THE STREET IS GOING TO BE A MAJOR MOVEMENT.

NEXT, THIS KIND OF SHOWS AGAIN, UH, WHERE THE GAS LINES RUN.

THEY RUN OUT OF CONCRETE.

THEY RUN HONORARY STREETS, IRAN ON OUR PARKING LOTS.

THERE IS NO LARGE BUILDINGS.

THERE'S NO 60 FOOT CONDOS OR ANYTHING AROUND.

LOOK AT THE TALLEST BUILDING THAT YOU SEE UP TOWARDS THE VERY TOP OF THE PICTURE.

AND THAT'S FROM THE CINEMA THAT HAS A LITTLE STATUE AT THE TOP.

NEXT SAME THING, GAS LINES GOING UNDER CONCRETE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING UNDERNEATH CONDOS AND ALL THIS OTHER STUFF NEXT.

SO I HAVE THE EMPLOYEES, ENGINEERS THAT REVIEWS ZONING CHANGES IN SITE PLANS FOR STORAGE USE AND HANDLING OF HAZARDOUS MATERIAL IN THE VICINITY.

THE LICENSED ENGINEERS ARE NOT FIREFIGHTERS AND THEY PROTECT THE FIREFIGHTERS.

AFD DOES NOT SUPPORT.

PLEASE GO BACK.

IF HE DOES NOT SUPPORT NO OBJECT TO STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS, YOU HEARD HIM JUST A WHILE AGO.

SHE MENTIONED THAT, UH, THAT'S ALL THEY DO.

THEY JUST GO THROUGH THAT INFORMATION.

THEY DON'T MAKE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS.

THEY DON'T SAY YES, THEY DON'T SAY NO RAILROAD COMMISSION.

WHAT I'VE TAUGHT.

I TALKED TO THEM, UH, BASICALLY IN A NUTSHELL, UH, THEY DON'T HAVE ANY HANDS-ON UNLESS THERE'S AN ACCIDENT.

IF THERE'S AN ACCIDENT, THEY'LL GO AND AUDIT, UH, THESE INDIVIDUALS, THEY ONLY REGULATE.

AND THEN THE NEXT THING IS WHO WILL RE BE RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANY AND ALL ACCIDENTS.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW.

WE'VE HAD SEVEN MEETINGS.

THE LAST MEETING THAT WE HAVE HAD, WE FOUND OUT THAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE A MONTH, WHICH WE'VE ALREADY KNOWN FOR ABOUT TWO MEETINGS, BUT THIS VERY LAST MEETING, WE FOUND OUT THAT THEY'RE ONLY GOING TO CLOSE ONE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND THEY'RE GOING TO LEAVE THE OTHER SIDE OPEN.

I ASKED AGAIN AT THE SEVENTH MEETING, WHAT IS THE WORST CASE SCENARIO OR RUNNING INTO? WELL, AS YOU HEARD JUST WHILE AGO, MR. PENA WAS ABLE TO SEND AN EMAIL TO US, GLASGOW, THE APPLICANT, AND GIVE YOU INFORMATION HERE, WHICH WE HAVE CORRESPONDED WITH VIA EMAIL.

A COUPLE OF TIMES NEVER GOT ANY INFORMATION.

AND IN FACT, THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE AT OUR LAST TWO MEETINGS.

THEY NEVER SHOWED UP.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY OF Y'ALL WOULD LITERALLY LITTLE KID OR YOURSELF GO TO THE DOCTOR AND GET MAJOR SURGERY DONE WITHOUT ASKING OR KNOWING WHAT'S GOING ON AND WHAT COULD BE COMPROMISED.

BUT HERE FOR ALL THE SUDDEN, THE EXPERTS ARE NOT HERE.

SO LET'S MOVE ON.

AS YOU LOOK AT THE BASIS OF THE RECOMMENDATION ON PAGE THREE, PUBLIC FACILITIES AND SERVICES SHOULD BE ADEQUATE TO SERVE THE SETS.

THE SET OF USES ALLOW REZONING 0.7 MILES AWAY FROM, UH, WE TOMORROW YOU HAVE SOUTH CONGRESS, CITY BUS SERVICES AND BIKE LANES WITHIN SECONDS FROM THOSE BUILDINGS, THE REZONING SHOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH POLICIES AND PRINCIPLES ADOPTED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OR PLANNING COMMISSION.

THIS WAS WHAT WAS INSIDE THE BASIS OF RECOMMENDATION, THE APARTMENTS AND CONDOS.

AND THIS IS WHAT WE'RE, WE'RE MENTIONING ON SOUTH CONGRESS DO NOT, WE HAVEN'T REJECTED ANYTHING OVER THERE.

AND THEN NONE OF THE PROPERTIES REQUIRED RELOCATION OF AN EXISTING MAJOR NATURAL GAS LINE OF IN FACT, AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT FORDABLE HOUSING, IT'S KNOWN THAT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO WORK WITH DEVELOPMENTAL THEY'RE AT 50% MFI, AND THEN THE ST.

ELMO CLONING APART BOULEVARD THAT WAS MENTIONED IN THE POWERPOINT PRESENTATION.

UH, IT DIDN'T REQUIRE A FILUM CHANGE.

IT DIDN'T REQUIRE ZONING CHANGE NOR WAS A GAS LINE NEEDS TO BE RELOCATED.

WE'RE FINE WITH THAT.

SO PRESERVE, ENHANCE A SINGLE STORY, SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOODS, AND RETAIN THE AFFORDABILITY OF THESE NEIGHBORHOODS.

WE DON'T WANT A FLOOD CHANGE AND WE WANT TO KEEP IT A COMMERCIAL MIX.

AND SO IT CALLS FOR UPGRADING.

UH, WE'D HAVE MARK LANE OVER, UH, AS IT WAS MENTIONED DOWN BY .

I DON'T CAN'T THINK OF MANY PEOPLE THAT WOULD WANT TO RIDE THEIR BIKE AND SKATEBOARD DOWN THE MOTOR MILE TO GO LOOK AT A BUNCH OF CARS EVERY DAY.

I MEAN, IT'S, I JUST DON'T KNOW THAT NEXT.

AND THEN HAS ANYONE EVER HEARD OR SEEN TWO MAJOR GET THE 12 INCH MAJOR GAS LINES RELOCATE IT? WHAT ARE THE TIMELINES FOR ROAD CLOSURES WHERE THE WORST CASE SCENARIOS FOR ROAD CLOSURES AND OR AN

[00:50:01]

EXPLOSION, AND WHO WILL BE RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE ACCIDENT DURING THE MOVEMENT, WORKING WITH THE GAS LINES, THE EXISTING COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES WITHIN THE WIEDEN MAR LANE HAVE NOT REQUESTED NOR RELOCATED THE NATURAL GAS LINE THAT EXISTS THERE.

I THINK THAT'S IT.

CAN YOU JUST GO ONE MORE? UM, WE'RE AT A TIME, DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER SLIDE? I JUST WANT TO SEE THE NEXT ONE.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS.

IT'S JUST A PHOTO.

YEP.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WELL, I'LL HEAR FROM MS. STACY LONG.

THIS IS A LONG YOU'LL HAVE SIX MINUTES MS. LONG BEFORE YOU PROCEED.

UH, PETER, STEP A NICKNAME, PRESENT NOTED.

PLEASE PROCEED.

GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS DACEY LONG AND I'M A RESIDENT IN COLONIAL TRIALS NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, WE ASK THAT YOU VOTE NO ON THIS STONE CHANGE BECAUSE IT'S NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

IF YOU LOOK AT THESE PICTURES, YOU CAN SEE THE PROPERTIES ADJACENT TO THAT ARE EITHER WAREHOUSES, SMALL BUSINESSES OR SINGLE FAMILY HOMES.

UM, THE DEVELOPER HAS USED THE STATION AT ST.

NAMEL TO SUPPORT.

LET ME SEE, HOW DO I GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE? OKAY.

THE DEVELOPER HAS USED THE STATION AT ST.

ELMO TO SUPPORT THE MULTI-FAMILY ZONE AND SAYS IT'S SIMILAR TO SURROUNDING PROPERTIES.

UM, THE LAND USE FOR THE STATION DEVELOPMENT DID NOT REQUIRE ZONE CHANGE AS MR. CANTU SAID, AND IT'S ZONE MULTI-USE.

THE DEVELOPMENT WILL HAVE ONLY 132 UNITS AND TOWN HOMES WITH THE HEIGHT OF THREE TO FOUR STORIES.

THIS IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WHEN COMPARED TO A SIX STORY COMPLEX WITH 550 UNITS, IT WILL LOOK VERY ODD IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

PLUS THE SAME STATION AT ST.

ELMO IS NOT ADJACENT TO THIS PROPERTY.

THE PROPERTY IS NOT ALONG AGAIN.

THE 4,700 WHEATON MORE PROPERTY IS NOT ALONG THE SOUTH CONGRESS CORRIDOR LIKE THE OTHER MULTI-USE CONDOS THAT MRS. GLASGOW WAS REFERRING TO.

IN FACT, THE CONDO SHE WAS REFERRING TO ARE ALMOST A MILE AWAY FROM THIS PROPERTY, AND IT IS NOT ACCORDING.

IT IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE AUSTIN MOBILE BLOCK, 101.5 A MILE ROUND TRIP THROUGH PARKING LOTS AND DRAINAGE DITCHES TO THE ORANGE LINE ON SOUTH CONGRESS, UH, WITH EITHER 35.

SO CLOSE TO THE LOCATION, THEY'RE GOING TO TAKE OUT 35.

YES.

THE SIDEWALKS HAVE BEEN ARE SCHEDULED IF THIS IS, UH, APPROVED TO BE PUT ONTARIO LANE.

AND, UM, I BELIEVE SHELBY LANE, BUT THE MAJORITY OF THE WALK TO THE ORANGE LINE WILL BE THROUGH PARKING LOTS OF WAREHOUSES SLIDE OR NEXT.

PLEASE.

CAN YOU GET TO THE NEXT ONE? SORRY.

OKAY.

SO I WANTED TO GO OVER A TIMELINE WITH YOU OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED.

WE ARE, THE RESIDENTS FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS, UH, ONLY AT MARCH 11TH, 2021.

WE HAD A MEETING WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN AND THE DEVELOPERS REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE DEVELOPERS SAID THEY DID HAVE APPROVAL FROM TEXAS GAS SERVICE FOR THE REROUTE MARCH 17TH.

I SPOKE WITH LINDA DUKES AND OF TEXAS GAS SERVICE TOGETHER, TOGETHER, MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PIPELINE.

AND SHE TOLD ME THE DEVELOPER HAD NOT REACHED OUT TO THEM.

THEY HAVE HAD NOTHING.

THERE'S NOTHING ON THE BOOKS FROM THEM.

SEPTEMBER 27TH, WE HAD ANOTHER MEETING WITH THE DEVELOPERS AND I ASKED THEM ABOUT THE MARCH MEETING AND NOT HAVING CONTACTED THE GAS COMPANY AND AN ENGINEER FROM THE DEVELOPERS VERIFIED THAT THEY HAD NOT CONTACTED THE GAS COMPANY, BUT THEY HAD NOT TALKED WITH THEM BEFORE A MEETING IN MARCH, BUT THEY SAID THEY HAD SPOKE WITH THEM OVER THE SUMMER.

AND THEY SINCE HAVE HAD PERMISSION TO MOVE THE LINE.

A FEW DAYS BEFORE NOVEMBER 9TH MEETING COLONIAL TRIALS FINALLY RECEIVED COPIES OF CORRESPONDENCE FROM THE ENGINEER TO TEXAS GAS SERVICE.

AND IT APPEARS THE FIRST TIME THE SHELBY LANE DEVELOPERS ASKED FOR PERMISSION TO REROUTE THE GAS LINE WAS SEPTEMBER 18TH, 2021, NOT OVER THE SUMMER, DECEMBER 13TH, 2021, THE COLONIAL CHARLES RESIDENTS RECEIVED ADDITIONAL CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE TEXAS GAS SERVICE AND THE DEVELOPERS, THE TEXAS GAS SERVICE TILL THE DEVELOPERS, AS MS. GLASGOW HAD SAID THAT THE GAS LINE WOULD BE 15 TO 20 FEET FROM THE EDGE OF THE BUILDING, WHICH IS FINE FOR THE CURRENT PRESSURE ON THE PIPELINE.

AS YOU KNOW THAT MANY OF THEM MUNICIPAL RESEARCH AND SERVICES CENTERS RECOMMENDS A MINIMUM OF 25 FEET SETBACK FOR NATURAL GAS TRANSMISSION LINE, AND MANY OTHER, UH, ORGANIZATION SIMILAR TO THIS LINDA DUKES AND THE TEXAS GAS SERVICE TOLD ME THAT THEY REQUIRE A 25 FOOT SETBACK FOR THIS PARTICULAR TRANSMISSION LINE.

SO WHY IS THERE A DECREASE IN A SETBACK FOR THIS LINE?

[00:55:02]

I WENT OVER THIS TIMELINE BECAUSE I WANTED TO SHOW YOU, THE DEVELOPERS HAVE SHARED A LOT OF INFORMATION WITH US CONCERNING THE WATER DRAINAGE AND TRAFFIC ANALYSIS AND OTHER REPORTS AND MAPS.

HOWEVER, THEY HAVE NOT BEEN AS TRANSPARENT AS TRANSPARENT WITH US WITH THE PIPELINE INFORMATION.

AND I'VE CALLED TEXAS GAS SERVICE SINCE THE MARCH, UH, PHONE CALL WITH BELINDA DICKSON AND THEY HAVE NOT RETURNED MY CALLS.

THEY HAVE NOT SHOWN UP TO ANY OF THE MEETINGS.

SO WE ARE KIND OF LEFT IN THE DARK ABOUT EVERYTHING.

UM, EVERY YEAR IN AUSTIN, THERE IS AT LEAST ONE NEIGHBORHOOD EVACUATION DUE TO NATURAL GAS LEAKS.

UM, OH, SORRY.

NEXT WILSON.

OKAY.

SORRY.

OKAY.

IT'S GONE.

EVERY YEAR IN AUSTIN, THERE IS AT LEAST ONE NEIGHBORHOOD EVACUATION DUE TO NATURAL GAS LEAK.

UH, THE LAST ONE WAS IN NORTH AUSTIN ON NOVEMBER 29TH OF THIS YEAR, THE MAJORITY ARE CAUSED BY NEW CONSTRUCTION AND EXCAVATION, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE.

IF THIS IS REROUTED IN OCTOBER, 2018, A GAS LEAK IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN CALLS A ONE FATALITY AND ONE SERIOUS INJURY TO THE RESIDENTS OF A HOME OFF OF TRAIL.

AFTER AN INVESTIGATION BY THE TEXAS RAILROAD COMMISSION, THEY CONCLUDED THE CAUSE WAS FROM A THIRD PARTY DOING WORK ON A SERVICE LINE THREE YEARS PRIOR IN 2015.

WHAT IF A GAS LEAK WERE TO OCCUR IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE SEVEN BUSINESSES ADJACENT TO THE PROPERTY HOW'S FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS AND THE TRANSMISSION LINE HAS A SETBACK OF 15 TO 20 FEET.

ONLY.

WE ASK YOU TO TAKE, NOT TO TAKE ANY CHANCES WITH OUR LAWS IN POTENTIAL RESIDENTS OF THE APARTMENTS AND CONDOMINIUMS. IF YOU SEE THIS IS THE 2018 FENDERS TRAIL, THAT WHERE THERE WAS ONE FATALITY AND ONE SEVERELY INJURED, HERE'S A GAS EXPLOSION ON IN 2018 WILLIAM CANNON AND PLEASANT VALLEY.

I BELIEVE THIS IS ALL THE SAME PIPELINE THAT RUNS WHERE THIS OCCURRED.

AND THIS IS NOT THE KIDS.

THIS IS IN NORTHWEST AUSTIN, UM, FEBRUARY, 2020, ANOTHER EXPLOSION.

UM, IN CONCLUSION, THE COLONIAL TROVE RESIDENTS ARE ASKING YOU TO PLEASE VOTE NO FOR THE CHANGE.

WHAT IF A GAS LEAK WERE TO OCCUR IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE AGAIN, SEVEN BUSINESSES ADJACENT TO THE PROPERTY.

HOW'S THE FLAMMABLE CHEMICALS.

UH, WE DON'T WANT TO TAKE CHANCES.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

YOU WILL NOT HEAR FROM MS. LYNN DAVIS, GEORGE KRAMER.

ARE YOU PRESENT NOTED? MS. DAVIS YOU'LL HAVE FOUR MINUTES.

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HAVE SIX MINUTES.

OKAY.

I'M GOING TO TAKE OFF MY MASK.

HI, EVERYBODY.

LYNN DAVIS, A RESIDENT, UM, AND, UM, OWNER, UH, AND THE COLONIAL TRAILS NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME TODAY.

UM, I WANT US TO ALL TAKE A SECOND TO RE-IMAGINE AUSTIN AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE, UH, THIS LATEST, UM, PROGRAM IMAGINE AUSTIN, BUT LET'S, RE-IMAGINE IT FOR A SECOND.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS THE STATION OF ST.

ELMO, UM, COMPLEX THAT, UH, LIKE A C COMMUNITIES IS CURRENTLY BUILDING.

THEY JUST TORE DOWN THE TREES A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO.

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN OVER THE SUMMER.

IT GETS VERY, UH, IMPLEMATIC OF 2021 IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, WHERE WE HAD A TEMPORARY RESIDENT LIVING THERE.

NEXT SLIDE.

UH, THIS IS NOW THAT AREA, THIS DEVELOPER HAS BEEN ENGAGING IN WHAT WE CALL SPOT ZONING ALL OVER AUSTIN, TAKING LITTLE CARVING OUT LITTLE PARCELS, LITTLE PIECES OF LAND HERE AND THERE TAKING DOWN GREEN SPACES AND DEVELOPING COMMUNITIES, UM, UH, SEEMINGLY AT WILL.

AND, UM, THIS IS, UH, YOU KNOW, A DISAPPOINTMENT TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT AS DACEY AND MARIO EXPLAINED, THIS WAS EXISTING ZONING.

SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE EXPECTED.

NEXT SLIDE, ANOTHER PICTURE OF, UH, WHAT WAS PREVIOUSLY A BEAUTIFUL, UM, A NICE FORESTED AREA AND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

NEXT SLIDE, THAT, THAT LOCATION, THE RESIDENCES, UM, AT A STATION AT ST.

ELMO, THIS WAS TAKEN FROM LEGACY'S COMMUNITY'S WEBSITE.

IT WAS THEIR PR RELEASE.

CLEARLY THEY'RE PROUD ABOUT THE FACT THAT THESE 132 CONDOS SOLD OUT IN FIVE HOURS.

IT WAS THE REC RECORD, BREAKING NO AMOUNT OF PERIOD FOR, UM, UH, COMPLEX SELLING OUT IN AUSTIN, TEXAS.

IT MADE NATIONAL NEWS.

I HAD FRIENDS REACH OUT TO ME FROM NEW YORK, AND I WAS ABLE TO TELL THEM THAT, YES, THAT DID HAPPEN IN AUSTIN.

IN FACT, THAT HAPPENED AT THE END OF OUR STREET.

AGAIN, THIS WAS ON THEIR WEBSITE.

UH, IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S SOMETHING THAT THEY WERE TOUTING AND SOMETHING

[01:00:01]

THAT THEY'RE PROUD OF.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS TAKEN FROM THEIR WEBSITE.

UH, TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURE.

AND THIS IS A DEVELOPER WHO IS TALKING ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING, RIGHT? DIVERSE COMMUNITIES.

WHEN I LOOK AT THIS PICTURE, I DON'T SEE A DEVELOPER WHO'S REALLY FOCUSED ON DIVERSE COMMUNITIES.

THEY'RE SOLD OUT.

THEY WERE FROM $200,000.

UM, IT WAS ACTUALLY $299,000.

AND I HAVE SOME OTHER SLIDES TO SHOW YOU IN A MINUTE, BUT I POINT THIS OUT BECAUSE I CALLED THIS DEVELOPER 16 TIMES, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, AS AN OWNER IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, I WAS CERTAINLY INTERESTED IN MAYBE INVESTING IN THIS PROPERTY.

I NEVER GOT A PHONE CALL BACK.

THIS WAS A DEVELOPMENT THAT WAS SOLD TO INVESTORS.

THIS IS A DEVELOPER WHO IS NOT INTERESTED IN RESIDENTS OF AUSTIN, POSSIBLY BEING ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE THEIR SORT OF DEMOGRAPHIC HERE.

WELL, YOU CAN SEE WHAT THEIR DEMOGRAPHIC IS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS THE LEGACY COMMUNICATION, UH, LEGACY COMMUNITIES TEAM.

UM, I SHOW YOU THIS PICTURE BECAUSE I DON'T THINK IT NECESSARILY REPRESENTS THE PEOPLE OF AUSTIN.

I DON'T THINK IT NECESSARILY REPRESENTS A DIVERSE COMMUNITY.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, I, I HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THAT.

I HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT A DEVELOPER WHO REALLY DOESN'T HAVE THE VISION REALLY DOESN'T HAVE THE FOCUS, UM, TO REALLY TRULY REPRESENT AUSTIN AND REALLY HAVE AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING COMPLEX IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

NEXT SLIDE, UH, ALSO TAKEN FROM LEGACY COMMUNITY'S WEBSITE.

THIS WAS ONE OF THE RESIDENTS THAT WAS, UM, INDICATED IN THE MOST RECENT REPORT THAT YOU ALL RECEIVED.

UM, AS A SIMILAR DEVELOPMENT THAT THEY'VE RECENTLY DEVELOPED, UM, FROM 300,000, WHICH IS FROM 399,000, ALSO SOLD OUT NEXT SLIDE.

UM, THE ADDIE AT WESTLAKE FROM $1.1 MILLION SOLD OUT NEXT SLIDE, WEST SIDELINE LANDING $1.1 MILLION SOLD OUT NEXT SLIDE, COOPER SQUARE FOR 400,000.

YOU CAN REALLY SAY THAT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT ALMOST 500,000 SOLD OUT NEXT SLIDE.

AND THIS IS THE LAST ONE THAT ISABELLA ON VALLEY VIEW ROAD, UH, ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THEIRS, UM, FROM NEARLY $500,000 IN THAT ONE'S CLOSED OUT.

NEXT SLIDE.

UM, THIS IS JUST REITERATING DAISY'S POINT ABOUT THE GAS LINE, NO GAS LINE OF THIS SIZE HAS EVER BEFORE BEEN MOVED IN AUSTIN, TEXAS.

UH, WE THINK THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS PROPOSITION, ESPECIALLY FOR A MULTI-FAMILY COMPLEX.

IT IS OF OUR AREA OF GREATEST CONCERN FOR THIS DEVELOPMENT.

WE ASK THAT YOU SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THIS WHEN YOU CONSIDER THIS PROPOSAL.

NEXT SLIDE.

UM, AND THEN I HAD A SERIES OF SLIDES ABOUT THE 12 DIFFERENT TENANTS OF IMAGINE AUSTIN.

UH, IT IS MY FEELING THAT NONE OF THE TENANTS HAVE IMAGINED AUSTIN, UM, GOALS REACH, UM, MEET THE TENANTS OF WHAT THIS DEVELOPMENT IS GOING TO BE.

SO THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR TIME.

AND I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR DECISION THANK YOU, MS. LONG.

I WILL HEAR, UM, REBUTTAL FOR MS. FLASKA.

MS. GLASGOW.

YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

I HAVE MY PRESENTATION BACK UP, PLEASE.

THANK YOU.

START FROM THE BEGINNING PLEASE.

I CAN'T ADVANCE FROM THE CONTROL.

I HAVE COMMISSIONERS IN MY REBUTTAL.

I'M JUST GOING TO FOCUS ON WHAT I KNOW, UH, WHAT YOUR CHARGES ARE.

THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

YOU ARE YOUR CHARGES TO LOOK AT LAND USE APPROPRIATENESS.

THE, UH, LAND USE CHANGE WE'RE SEEKING HERE IS A ZONING CHANGE, AND IT'S CONSISTENT WITH THE LAND USE PATTERN IN THE AREA.

ALTHOUGH THE ZONING DOES NOT LOOK LIKE RESIDENTIAL, YOU HAVE CSM, YOU MF SIX ZONING.

YOU HAVE LIP DA, AND THE PDA FUNCTIONS THE SAME WAY AS M U ALLOWS RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT.

AS I SAID EARLIER, THERE WILL BE OVER A THOUSAND RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE VICINITY OF THIS SITE.

THE, UM, REGARDING THE GAS COMPANY,

[01:05:01]

THE GAS COMPANY IS A PRIVATE ENTITY, AND WE'VE ALSO HAD A HARD TIME REACHING THEM.

THEY TAKE THE AUTOMOTIVE, UM, CARE AND SAFETY MEASURES IN RELOCATING A GAS LINE.

OBVIOUSLY THE GAS LINE RIGHT NOW IS LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR PROPERTY.

IT'S GOING TO BE RELOCATED INTO THE RIGHT OF WAY, WHERE THEY HAVE EASY ACCESS TO THE GAS LINE.

SO IT WOULD BE NO DIFFERENT FROM WHERE YOUR WATER AND WASTEWATER AND GAS LINES ARE THAT SERVE YOUR HOME.

SO YOU ALL LIVE IN A RESIDENCY, THE HOME ON APARTMENT, THOSE APARTMENTS OR HOMES, GET WATER WASTEWATER, OTHER UTILITIES THAT COME TO YOUR HOMES.

AND THOSE UTILITIES ARE LOCATED ALONG WITHIN THE RIGHT OF WAY.

AS YOU CAN SEE CONSTRUCTION OCCURS, THEY USUALLY COMMENT AND PAINT DIFFERENT PAINT COLORS TO SHOW WHERE THOSE UTILITIES ARE AT THE TIME OF CONSTRUCTION.

SO WE BELIEVE THAT RELOCATING THE GAS LINE IS APPROPRIATE, WHETHER IT'S FOR MULTI-FAMILY OF A HOTEL, FOR ANY USE, THE GAS COMPANY FEELS THAT THIS IS THE APPROPRIATE LOCATION TO HAVE IT IN THE RIGHT OF WAY, UH, AS MR KHAN TO SIT IT UNDER THE CONCRETE.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHY IT'S GOING TO BE RELOCATED FROM THE MIDDLE OF A PIECE OF PROPERTY AND TO THE RIGHT WAY TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE REST OF THE PATTERN OF WHERE THAT GAS LINES ARE LOCATED ALONG THE ROADWAYS.

SECONDLY, WE REACHED OUT TO THE GAS COMPANY STARTED IN OCTOBER OF 2020 WE'VE.

WE HAD, WE'VE HAD A CHANGE IN CIVIL ENGINEERS.

OUR INITIAL ENGINEER REACHED OUT TO THEM AND HE REACHED OUT TO MR. RENE PENA.

I THINK THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS BEEN EITHER CALLING AND TALKING TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

AND, UM, MORE RECENTLY MAY OF 2021, UH, OUR NEW CIVIL ENGINEER CLAYTON STERLY REACHED OUT TO MR. VALERO.

AND THOSE ARE THE FOLKS WHO HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATING.

THEY DO NOT RETURN CALLS OR RESPOND QUICKLY.

THEY ARE NOT, UH, LIKE CITY EMPLOYEES WHO RESPOND PROMPTLY AND WE CANNOT CONTROL THEM.

THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE TO THE TEXAS RAILROAD COMMISSION.

SO I BELIEVE WE HAVE ADDRESSED OUR QUESTIONS.

THE FIRE DEPARTMENT IS HERE.

UM, MR. YOU CAN SEND THEM THE RIGHT THING.

THE BACK THEY'RE HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE REGARDING THE, UM, WHATEVER QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE REGARDING THE SAFETY OR ANY ASPECTS RELATED TO THIS PIPELINE.

I WOULD LUXE TO ALSO TO POINT OUT TO COMMISSION MEMBERS THAT, UM, I RECENTLY BROUGHT THREE CASES TO YOU THAT ARE IN EAST AUSTIN.

JUST TALKING ABOUT, UH, THE SAFETY OF GAS LINES, THE FOUR CASES YOU APPROVED HAVE A ZONING AT THE MOST CROSSING MUD THAT HAVE THREE MAJOR HAZARDOUS PIPELINES DEVELOPMENT IS OCCURRING THEIR HOMES THERE.

SO THE POINT I RAISED HERE THAT IN THOSE, WITHIN FOR THOSE CASES, STAFF INDICATING THEIR REPORT THOUGH, HAZARDOUS PIPELINES, UH, THAT THERE WERE NO CONCERNS RAISED.

THE POINT IS THAT AT THE TIME OF SITE PLAN, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT REVIEWS TO ENSURE THAT ALL CITY REGULATIONS THAT ARE CALLED OUT FOR THOSE HAZARDOUS PIPELINES, ALTHOUGH OUR NATURAL GAS LINE HERE IS NOT CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE HAZARDOUS PIPELINE AS DEFINED BY THE CITY CODE AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT CAN SPEAK TO THAT.

BUT IN THOSE CASES THAT YOU DID APPROVE THEM WITH OBVIOUSLY THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE CITY STAFF WOULD REVIEW THOSE APPROPRIATELY AND THAT WAS SAFE ENOUGH.

THANK YOU AT THAT POINT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, COMMISSIONERS, UH, I GUESS WE'RE READY FOR Q AND A, UM, WHO WOULD LIKE TO GO FIRST? OH, THANK YOU.

IT'S PUBLIC HEARING A MOTION BY COMMISSIONER DESIRES, SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER COX.

UH,
