IT IS A 5 0 3

[CALL TO ORDER]

OR SO ON APRIL THE FIFTH, 2022.

UH, WE HAVE A QUORUM, SO WE'RE GOING TO CALL THE URBAN TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION MEETING TO ORDER, UM, OUR FIRST ITEM ON THE AGENDA.

IS THERE ANYONE SIGNED UP FOR CITIZENS COMMUNICATION ON TOPICS? NOT ON THE AGENDA? NO, THERE WAS NOT.

OKAY, GREAT.

UM, AND JUST FOR MY KNOWLEDGE, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF PEOPLE SIGNED UP FOR LATER ITEMS, SPEAKERS UP AT ALL.

OH, OKAY.

I THOUGHT HAYDEN BARKER BLACK MIGHT BE SIGNING UP, BUT I GUESS NOT, NO, UH, THE EMAIL THAT YOU ALL RECEIVED OR JUST COMMENTS FROM HAYDEN, SHE HAS NOT LET ME KNOW THAT SHE'S, UH, THAT SHE WANTS TO SPEAK TODAY.

SHE'S NOT IN ATTENDANCE EITHER IN PERSON OR VIRTUAL, UM, THAT, THAT I KNOW SHE MAY BE WATCHING ON ATX AND, AND THAT'S FINE, BUT, UM, IN TERMS OF SPEAKING, SHE'S NOT SIGNED UP TO SPEAK, BUT SHE HAS SENT YOU ALL COMMENTS, UM, TO LOOK AT.

OKAY.

I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO GLOSS OVER SOMEBODY WHO WAS WAITING CAUSE WE, CAUSE WE DIDN'T SEE THEM.

OKAY.

SO

[1. APPROVAL OF MARCH 1st, 2022 MINUTES]

THEN LET'S MOVE ON TO ITEM ONE APPROVAL OF THE MARCH 1ST, 20, 22 MINUTES.

YOU SHOULD HAVE, UH, AN ITEM THAT WAS EMAILED TO YOU OR IF YOU'RE HERE IN PERSON, YOU ALSO GOT A HANDY PAPER COPY, LIKE THE OLDEN DAYS.

IS THERE A MOOT, WAS THAT COMMISSIONER WEATHERBY? WAS THAT A MOTION TO APPROVE THE MINUTES OR WAS THAT A QUESTION? I WOULD MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THOSE MINUTES AS SUBMITTED.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, IS THERE A SECOND? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

COMMISSIONER BURKE, SECOND, ALL, UH, IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION ALL IN FAVOR, EITHER RAISE YOUR HAND OR SAY AYE OR APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES? ALL OPPOSED ANY ABSTENTIONS? ALRIGHT.

ALL OF THOSE PRESIDENTS WHO VOTED CECELIA RAMOS, I DON'T SEE YOUR CAMP, YOUR PHOTO, BUT, OR YOUR VIDEO.

DID YOU VOTE AN I OR AN A OR AN ABSTENTION COMMISSIONER RAMOS.

DID YOU CANARY? I, YEAH.

OKAY.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

UM, AND WELCOME ABOARD SAMWELL.

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE MOVING ON TO ITEM NUMBER TWO.

UM, FIRST

[2.A. Transportation Criteria Manual Update]

ITEM TWO A IS THE TRANSPORTATION CRITERIA MANUAL UPDATE.

THIS IS PRESENTED FOR POSSIBLE ACTION THAT I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANY ACTION ON THE TABLE, DEWEY.

UH, THAT'S CORRECT.

UH, NONE OF THESE ITEMS ARE NECESSARILY FOR ACTION EXCEPT FOR THE LAST ITEM TO E WHICH IS MOVING HIS RECOMMENDATION.

OKAY.

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

JUST MAKING SURE.

OKAY.

UM, IS ALL BEREA HERE? I THINK I SAW THE NAME.

YES, I'M HERE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UH, WHENEVER YOU ARE READY TO GO, WE ARE READY FOR YOU.

ABSOLUTELY.

UH, THANK YOU, CHAIR, A VICE-CHAIR AND ALL THE COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS .

I'M THE DEVELOPMENT OFFICER AND EXECUTIVE RESPONSIBLE FOR A COUPLE OF PROJECTS THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HEAR ABOUT TODAY.

UH, ONE OF THEM IS THE TRANSPORTATION CRITERIA, MANUAL TCM, AND UM, THE OTHER ONE IS A STREET IMPACT FEE AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, LIKE WE HAVE WORKED ON THE TRANSPORTATION CRASH MANUAL FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS OR SO, BUT THE OLDER, UM, PATRIA MANUAL OF THE TCM IS REALLY OLD.

I BELIEVE LAST TIME WE UPDATED THE TCM WAS BACK IN, UH, 1980S.

IT IS REALLY FOUR DECADES OLD, UH, CRITERIA MANUAL.

WE ATTEMPTED MANY TIMES TO ABIT IT IN BETWEEN, BUT THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME WE WERE ABLE TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

UM, SINCE IT WAS A FOUR DECADES OLD DOCUMENT, WE REALLY FOCUSED ON UPGRADING AND UPDATING THE STANDARDS AND DESIGN PARAMETERS AND BRING THEM UP TO THE CURRENT CURRENT STANDARDS BASED ON THE NATIONAL BEST PRACTICES.

AND OUR, UH, ADDITIONAL FOCUS WAS ON PEDESTRIAN BICYCLE AND, UH, TRANSIT CONNECTIVITY AND SAFETY BECAUSE FOR DECADES BACK, WE DIDN'T REALLY HAVE, UM, THAT MUCH PRIORITIES ON THIS, UM, ELEMENTS.

SO THE OTHER ITEM WE FOCUSED ON WAS, UM, SOME FLEXIBILITY IN DESIGN PARAMETERS BECAUSE NOW THAT WE LIVE IN A BUILT ENVIRONMENT, WE HAVE A LOT OF CONSTRAINTS WHEN WE TRY TO DESIGN OUR STREETS.

SO WE ATTEMPTED TO PROVIDE SOME GUIDANCE.

HOW DO WE DESIGN OUR STREETS UNDER CERTAIN CONCENTRATED CONDITIONS? SO WE PROVIDED SOME OPTIONS FOR CONTEXT SENSITIVE DESIGNS, UH, IN THE UPDATED CRITERIA MANUAL.

UM, THE OTHER MAJOR UPDATES THAT I SHOULD TALK ABOUT, I KNOW DANIEL

[00:05:01]

IS GOING TO GO INTO THE DETAILS, UH, LATER IS THAT, UM, WE HAVE UPDATED OUR TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENT REVIEW METHODS TO COMPLIMENT OUR NEW STREET IMPACTED PROGRAM.

UM, SO LET ME TALK ABOUT THE STREET IMPACTED FOR A FEW SECONDS.

SO THE NEW STREET IMPACT FEE IS A NEW PROGRAM THAT ALLOWS, UM, THE NEW DEVELOPMENTS TO PAY FOR THEMSELVES.

MEANING, UM, WHEN WE HAVE NEW DEVELOPMENTS, THE NEW, UH, DEVELOPERS WILL HAVE TO PAY A SPECIFIC FEE FOR TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE, UM, SO THAT THE CITY CAN BUILD THOSE INFRASTRUCTURE TO ACCOMMODATE NEW DEVELOPMENTS.

UM, SO THE PARTICULAR FEE IS GOING TO BE BASED ON, UH, THE PROPOSED LAND USE INTENSITY AND, UH, THEIR LOCATION AND THE, OF THE NEO STREET IMPACT IS THAT, UM, IT ALLOWS THE APPLICANTS AND DEVELOPERS TO CALCULATE LIKE HOW MUCH FEE THEY'LL HAVE TO PAY AT THE INCEPTION OF THEIR PROJECT, UH, LONG BEFORE THEY HAVE TO DO A SITE PLAN OR A SUBDIVISION PLAN.

SO THAT WAY IT PROVIDES SOME CLARITY, UM, CERTAINTY AND PREDICTABILITY IN THE PROCESS TO DEVELOPERS AS WELL AS TO THE CITIZENS OF AUSTIN.

SO I'M NOT GOING TO GO TO THE DETAILS OF THE IMPACT FEE AS MUCH BECAUSE LATER ON THEN HENNESSY AND IS BURIED.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO INTO THE DETAILS, BUT TO COMPLIMENT, UM, OUR STREET IMPACT FEE, WE HAVE UPDATED OUR TCM ACCORDINGLY IN THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW METHODS.

UM, BEFORE I HAND IT OVER TO DANIELLA MORIN, WHO IS OUR PROJECT MANAGER, UM, I WOULD LIKE TO CONVEY OUR POSITION TO ALL OF OUR PARTNER DEPARTMENTS, ALTHOUGH ATD HAVE LED THE TCM UPDATING EFFORT, BUT THERE WERE SIGNIFICANT INPUT FROM AUSTRIAN PRIOR DEPARTMENT, PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, UH, HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

UM, I'M FORGETTING OTHER THAN THEMSELVES DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT.

SO I REALLY WANTED TO CONVEY THANKS TO ALL OF OUR PARTNER DEPARTMENTS.

AND LASTLY, NOW THAT WE HAVE UPGRADED OUR PCM FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER FOUR DECADES, UM, STILL IS NOT A PERFECT DOCUMENT, BUT THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF UPGRADING OUR TCM.

UM, NOW THAT WE ARE ABLE TO UNENTANGLE THAT TCM UPDATING PROCESS, WE PLAN TO UPDATE AND IMPROVE OUR PCM, UH, EVERY OTHER YEAR.

AND, UM, AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

SO WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO HAND IT OVER TO DANIELLE MORIN, WHO IS OUR PROJECT MANAGER OVER THE TCM UPDATING PROJECT.

THANK YOU.

BEAUTIFUL.

THANKS FOR THAT, UM, INTRODUCTION AND THANK YOU, UM, UTC FOR HAVING US HERE TONIGHT.

UM, WE DO HAVE A PRESENTATION, SO I WILL, I'LL WAIT FOR CHRIS TO BRING THAT UP TO START.

IS IT NOT THE, THE GOALS THAT THE PATIENT WE'RE LOOKING AT NOW LABELED MAIN GOALS? IS THERE A DIFFERENT PRESENTATION? OH, YOU'RE RIGHT.

I'M PROBABLY, I CAN'T SEE IT ONLINE SCREENINGS.

I HAD TO MEET HIM.

IT, UM, I, ALL I'M SAYING BY DEFAULT IS THE AVS LIKE FILE EXPLORER.

YEAH, SAME HERE.

UH, LET ME PULL IT UP AND I CAN, UM, IS THERE ANY WAY TO SHARE THE PRESENTATION FROM, UM, FROM THE CITY OF HOLLAND? I THINK WE'RE TRYING TO DO THAT NOW.

SO GIVE US JUST A MOMENT.

SURE.

I CAN PULL, I CAN PULL IT UP SEPARATELY ON MY COMPUTER TOO, AND KIND OF GO THAT WAY.

LET ME DO THAT.

UH, DANIEL, YOU SHOULD HAVE THE PRESENTER RIGHTS, SO JUST LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE THAT.

OKAY.

HERE WE GO.

WE CAN SEE YOUR SCREEN.

YEP.

WE CAN SEE YOUR SCREEN.

GREAT.

SORRY IF I'M LIKE LOOKING AT A DIFFERENT SCREEN, UM, AS I GO THROUGH THIS.

UM, SO YEAH.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING US HERE TODAY.

UM, LIKE PEOPLE MENTIONED, THIS HAS BEEN A LONG PROCESS.

UM, WE'RE EXCITED TO GET TO THE END OF IT.

[00:10:01]

UM, THERE HAVE BEEN A COUPLE OF ITERATIONS THROUGHOUT THE PAST FEW DECADES TO GET A NEW TCM THAT DIDN'T QUITE MAKE IT.

UM, SO WE'RE, WE'RE PRETTY EXCITED AT THIS POINT.

UH, SO JUST REAL QUICKLY, YOU KNOW, WHY DID WE UPDATE THE TCM AS PEOPLE MENTIONED, UM, OUR CURRENT TCM WAS CREATED AND DRAFTED IN THE 1980S.

UH, LOTS OF HAS CHANGED HERE IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

UM, WHAT HAPPENS CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT REVIEW IS THAT THE CURRENT TC, UM, UM, IT, IT KIND OF PUSHES THE DEVELOPERS TO APPLY FOR LOTS OF WAIVERS JUST TO ACHIEVE, UM, SOME OF THE DESIGN GOALS THAT WE, THE CITY WANTS TO SEE.

UM, SO PART OF THIS UPDATE IS TO ENSURE, UM, THE CRITERIA THAT WE HAVE, UM, PUT OUT IS, IS WE'LL GET THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT, UM, THAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR HERE FOR SAFETY AND MOBILITY WISE.

UM, THE CURRENT TCM IS ALSO PRETTY CONFUSING, UM, TO READ, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE TAKEN A LOOK AT MEANY CODE THE DOCUMENT, UM, IT'S, IT'S IT DOESN'T READ WELL, IT'S HARD TO GO BACK AND FORTH, UM, AND IT'S NOT PREDICTABLE FOR THE DEVELOPERS.

SO THIS UPDATE, UM, IS MEANT TO HELP REMEDY THAT AS WELL.

WE HAD NUMEROUS GOALS FOR THIS UPDATE.

UM, WE REALLY WANTED TO PROVIDE A STRONG DESIGN FOUNDATION FOR DESIGNERS AND DEVELOPERS.

UM, WE'RE ALSO INCORPORATING, UM, A FEW NATIONAL, UM, CRITERIA, INCLUDING ASH SHOW NACCHO AND ITE.

UM, THE WORDING IN THE TCM UPDATE ALLOWS US TO, UM, ADOPT THE MOST RECENT VERSIONS OF THESE CRITERIA WITHOUT HAVING TO, UM, MAKE EDITS TO THE TCM.

SO THAT IS HELPFUL, UM, BOTH INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY, SO THAT PEOPLE, UM, CAN PREDICT WHAT, UM, YOU KNOW, NATIONAL STANDARDS WE ARE TRYING TO PROMOTE AND HOW THEY SHOULD DESIGN THEIR, THEIR DEVELOPMENT.

UM, WE'RE ALSO REFLECTING, UM, AUSTIN STRATEGIC MOBILITY GOALS, UM, AND LIKE PEOPLE MENTIONED PROVIDING MORE OF A FLEXIBLE DESIGN GUIDANCE, UH, FOR DEVELOPERS FOR THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT, WHICH IS MOST OF THE DEVELOPMENT THAT WE SEE HERE IN AUSTIN.

UM, AS WELL AS OBVIOUSLY PRE PRIORITIZING SAFETY, UM, DEFINITELY FOR PEDESTRIANS BIKES AND TRANSIT, AND IT ALSO INCORPORATES THE STREET IMPACT FEE ORDINANCE.

SO FOR THIS ITERATION OF THE TCM UPDATE, UM, WE OFFICIALLY BEGAN IN 2018 WITH, UM, WE PARTNERED WITH DSD TO HELP DEVELOP OUR, UH, THREE DESIGN GUIDE DRAFT.

WE USED THAT TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT DEVELOPMENT THAT CAME IN AND TEST OUT DIFFERENT CROSS SECTIONS TO SEE, YOU KNOW, HOW WE, HOW CAN WE PRIORITIZE, PRIORITIZE DIFFERENT MODES OF TRANSPORTATION WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENTS THAT WE SEE COMING IN HERE IN AUSTIN.

AND THAT HELPED CREATE A STRONG FOUNDATION FOR THE CROSS SECTIONS THAT YOU SEE HERE IN THE TCM.

UM, WE WENT THROUGH, UM, IN THE INFORMAL PUBLIC REVIEW PERIOD, UM, IN THE WINTER OF 2020, THAT WAS, UM, OUR EFFORT TO JUST PUT THE DOCUMENT OUT THERE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE HEAR WHAT THE PUBLIC HAS TO SAY.

UH, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WHEN WE WENT THROUGH THE FORMAL RULES POSTING PROCESS, UM, WE HAD, YOU KNOW, HEARD WHAT THE PUBLIC HAS TO SAY AND MAKE SURE THAT THE DOCUMENT REFLECTS, UM, HOW THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY WORKS AND THAT WE WOULDN'T HAVE ANY ISSUES.

UM, MOVING FORWARD THROUGH THAT PROCESS, UH, THE CITY MANAGER DID APPROVE THIS DOCUMENT IN, UM, THE FALL OF 2021.

AND WE DO HAVE, UM, A FORMAL, UM, EFFECTIVE DATE OF JUNE 20TH OF THIS YEAR, WHICH ALSO MIRRORS THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE STREET IMPACT FJORD.

SO THESE ARE THE SIDE, JUST ILLUSTRATE SOME OF THE, THE MAJOR PUBLIC FEEDBACK SEEMS THAT WE SAW, UH, WE HAD A LOT OF COMMENTS REGARDING THREE CROSS SECTIONS AND THEN THREE TREES, UM, IMPROVING PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE SAFETY, UH, SOME PAVEMENT DESIGN COMMENTS, UH, LOTS OF COMMENTS ON OUR TRANSPORTATION IMPACT ANALYSIS PROCESS, UH, DRIVEWAYS AND PARKING, AND ALSO, UM, A BIG PUSH TO HAVE A BETTER AND MORE CLEAR WAIVER PROCESS, UH, THAN THE CURRENT TCM HAS.

THE NEXT TWO SLIDES ARE JUST SOME SUMMARIES, UM, OF SOME OF THE KEY CHANGES THAT WE HAD FROM THE CURRENT TCM TO THE NEW TCM.

UM, WE'VE DEFINITELY MODERNIZED OUR STREET DESIGN.

UM, WE'VE GOT NARROWER STREET, CROSS SECTIONS.

UM, WE, WE FOCUS MORE ON PEDESTRIAN BIKE AND TRANSIT, UM, INSTEAD OF MERELY FOCUSING ON, UH, VEHICLE DESIGN ELEMENTS AND THE CROSS SECTIONS, UM, WE'VE PROVIDED FOR SAFER DRIVEWAY, UM, CROSSINGS FOR PEDESTRIANS AND BIKES.

UH, WE'VE INCLUDED THREE TREES AND IN OUR REQUIRED CROSS SECTIONS, WHICH IS A BIG IMPROVEMENT, AND WE'VE ALSO ALIGNED WITH ASM P

[00:15:01]

UH, VISION ZERO AND NATIONAL BEST PRACTICE GOALS.

UM, AND LIKE I MENTIONED, WE WE'VE INCLUDED FLEXIBLE DESIGN AND CONTEXT-SENSITIVE DESIGN, UH, WHAT THIS DOES IN THE NEW TCM AS WE'VE PROVIDED KIND OF A FLOW CHART, UH, FOR DEVELOPERS WHEN THEY HAVE THOSE CONSTRAINED CONDITIONS TO HELP DESIGN THE CROSS SECTIONS, THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO FIT IN THEIR EXISTING RIGHT OF WAYS.

UH, THAT'S, THAT'S A BIG IMPROVEMENT FROM THE CURRENT TCM, UH, WHICH, YOU KNOW, IF THERE, IF THERE WAS ANY TYPE OF DESIGN DEVIATION, YOU WOULD NEED A WAIVER.

SO THIS WILL BE GREAT FOR PREDICTABILITY, SO THAT THE DEVELOPMENT, UH, PROPOSALS THAT WE SEE COMING IN, UH, WE'LL BE ABLE TO BETTER REFLECT THE CROSS SECTIONS THAT WE HAVE HERE.

UH, WE'VE ALSO INCLUDED, RAISED BY CLEANS, WHICH IS A BIG IMPROVEMENT, UM, ON OUR CROSS SECTIONS, WHICH WILL DEFINITELY HELP TO PROMOTE SAFETY.

AND BY SEPARATING THOSE BICYCLISTS FROM VEHICLE TRAFFIC, UM, ANOTHER ELEMENT OF THIS TCM, BUT WE WA WE WORKED A LOT WITH PUBLIC WORKS TO UPDATE, UM, THE PAVEMENT DESIGN CRITERIA.

UH, THIS EFFORT IS MEANT TO, UH, HELP REDUCE MAINTENANCE COSTS, BUT ALSO, UH, PROVIDE PAVEMENT DESIGN THAT, THAT LASTS LONGER, UM, AND IS MORE FOCUSED ON PERFORMANCE.

UM, AND WE'VE ALSO UPDATED OUR TRANSPORTATION IMPACT ANALYSIS PROCESS TO INCLUDE, UM, MORE OF A TIERED APPROACH WHERE, WHERE WE'RE REALLY PUSHING TRANSPORTATION, DEMAND MANAGEMENT, ESPECIALLY FOR SMALLER PROJECTS TO HELP REDUCE THOSE MITIGATION COSTS, UM, AND BETTER ALIGN WITH OUR ASM P UH, MODE SHARE GOALS.

UM, SO THAT'S A BIG IMPROVEMENT, UM, FOR THE CURRENT CCM, WHICH IT, WHICH WAS VERY CUMBERSOME FOR A LOT OF DIFFERENT PROJECTS IN IT.

AND IT REALLY TIED OUR HANDS TO FOCUS MERELY ON VEHICLES VERSUS, UM, BEING ABLE TO FOCUS MORE ON MULTIMODAL ANALYSIS.

UH, SO OUR NEXT STEPS RIGHT NOW, WE'RE PROVIDING UPDATES TO BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS.

UM, HERE IN APRIL, UM, IN MID MAY, WE'LL BE HAVING, UM, JUST KIND OF AN OVERALL PUBLIC WEB WEBINAR ILLUSTRATING SOME OF THE MAJOR CHANGES TO THE TCM.

UH, WE'RE ALSO PLANNING ON A HANDFUL OF MORE SUBJECT SPECIFIC TRAINING SESSIONS, UM, IN EARLY JUNE, WHICH WILL BE, UM, YOU KNOW, FOCUSED ON SUBJECTS LIKE THE TIA AND TDM PORTION, AS WELL AS DRIVEWAY DESIGN, CURB RETURN RADIO, UH, MORE OF THE TECHNICAL SUBJECTS.

UM, LIKE I MENTIONED, THE TCM WILL BE EFFECTIVE ON JUNE 20TH, UH, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE STREET IMPACT FEE EFFECTIVE DATE.

AND LIKE OOLA MENTIONED, UM, WE'VE BEEN, WE'VE, WE'VE CONSTANTLY COMMITTED TO MAKING SURE THAT THIS QCM REMAINS UPDATED.

UH WE'VE WE HAVEN'T DONE THE BEST JOB IN THE PAST, KEEPING THE TCM UPDATED SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN THE EIGHTIES.

SO WE PLAN ON DOING EITHER, YOU KNOW, WHETHER IT'S AN ANNUAL OR BI-ANNUAL UPDATE TO ENSURE, UM, THAT AS OUR GOALS CHANGE, AS THE CITY GROWS, THAT THE TCM REFLEXES AND SO THAT WHEN PEOPLE LOG ONTO MUNI CODE, UH, TO DESIGN THEIR SITES, THEY CAN BE, THEY CAN ENSURE THAT, YOU KNOW, THE DESIGN CRITERIA THAT WE HAVE UP THERE IS ACTUALLY UP TO DATE AND CURRENT, AND THAT IS ALL I HAD FOR TONIGHT.

SO THANK YOU ALL FOR HAVING US TONIGHT.

HAPPY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, STOP SHARING MY SCREEN.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

UH, PRESENTERS, UM, UH, OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING BACK ONLINE, I COULD SEE THEM.

I HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, BUT IF ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO RAISE YOUR HAND.

I'LL CALL ON YOU NOT TO NEED ANY OF HAND.

LET ME JUMP IN WITH A QUESTION THEN, UH, FIRST OFF, THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION.

AND THANKS FOR ANSWERING ONE OF MY QUESTIONS AHEAD OF TIME, WHICH WAS, HOW DOES THIS THING GET UPDATED REGULARLY SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER FOUR DECADES, UH, TO SEE SOME CHANGES.

SO THAT'S GOOD TO KNOW THAT IT'S A LIVING DOCUMENT, UM, AND SORT OF CONCURRENT WITH THAT IS HOW IS THIS ENFORCED? SO YOU TALKED ABOUT DEVELOPERS AND MAYBE SOME DEVELOPER TRAINING PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO PRODUCE, UH, SOME OF THE ASPECTS OF THIS, BUT THE, HOW ARE, HOW ARE THE, THE DETAILS NOW THAT THINGS HAVE BEEN AGREED ON HOW ARE THOSE MADE REAL IN THE WORLD? UM, SO I, I THINK YOUR QUESTION IS MORE, UM, THESE NEW GUIDELINES, HOW ARE THEY ENFORCED ABOUT THE RADIO, ABOUT THE RAISED SIDEWALKS WHO'S, WHO'S IN CHARGE OF MAKING SURE THAT ALL OF THESE DECISIONS ARE ENACTED.

UH, SO THE TCM COMES INTO PLAY, UM, WHEN DEVELOPMENT, WHEN THEY, WHEN SOMEBODY SUBMITS A SITE PLAN OR SUBDIVISION PLAN.

SO AS INCREMENTAL DEVELOPMENT HAPPENS, UM, THE, AS PART OF THE REVIEW PROCESS, BOTH AT DSP AND HERE AT ATD, UH, WE WILL USE THIS UPDATED TCM TO MAKE SURE THAT

[00:20:01]

ALL OF THE TRANSPORTATION DESIGN ELEMENTS, UM, IN THOSE PROJECTS FOLLOW THESE UPDATED DESIGN GUIDELINES.

SO THERE'LL BE AN INCREMENTAL, UM, I GUESS, ROLLOUT, YOU COULD SAY, UM, AS NEW DEVELOPMENTS COME ONLINE, UM, BUT, BUT BOTH ATD AND DSP WOULD BE, WOULD BE THE, KIND OF THE FRONTLINE TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE DEVELOPMENT APPLICATIONS, UH, CONFORM TO THE DESIGN CRITERIA HERE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UM, EVERYTHING SORRY, A 30 CHAIR.

UM, SO IN ADDITION TO WHAT DANIELLE JUST MENTIONED, WE ARE ALSO, UM, MAKING SOME MANAGEMENTS FOR WORKSHOPS AND TRAINING FOR CONSULTANTS AND DESIGNERS AND ENGINEERS.

SO I BELIEVE LIKE WE HAVE A COUPLE OF WORKSHOPS COMING UP IN MID MAY OR LATE MAY, SO THAT, UH, OUR DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY THERE WILL HAVE BASED OFF ALL THESE UPCOMING CHANGES ON THE SAME NOTE, AS DANIELLE MENTIONED, UM, SERIOUS STUFF, UH, IN MANY DEPARTMENTS, INCLUDING, UH, PUBLIC WORKS.

SO OBVIOUSLY AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT, AS WELL AS, UH, DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT WOULD BE, UH, ENFORCING THE NEW TCM.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

THAT'S VERY HELPFUL.

THAT WAS, IT'S SORT OF EXACTLY WHAT I WAS WONDERING.

WHO'S, YOU KNOW, JUST MAKING SURE THAT IT'S IN THE PROCESS AND THAT THERE'S SOMEONE IN THE END WHO HOLDS THE REIGNS OF MAKING SURE THAT THESE DECISIONS GET ENACTED BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN WAITING.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FROM COMMISSIONERS, COMMISSIONER SUMMERS? YEAH.

UM, SO THE LAST MEETING THAT WE HAD, WE HAD, UM, A LOT OF COMMUNITY QUESTIONS ABOUT, UM, THE, THE STREET CATEGORIES, UM, WHICH WAS SOMETHING THAT I HAD NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DIG INTO BEFORE.

AND, UM, THAT WAS MORE ABOUT THE STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN UPDATE WHEREIN.

UM, SO C I'M JUST GOING TO RESTATE WHAT I THINK I LEARNED, AND YOU CAN TELL ME IF I'M WRONG, AND THEN YOU CAN TELL ME HOW IT INTERACTS WITH WHAT WE LEARNING TODAY, BUT THAT IN THE OLD MOBILITY PLAN, WE HAD LIKE A PLETHORA OF STREET TYPES, MAYBE LIKE 10 OR 12 TYPES.

AND THAT WENT DOWN TO REALLY JUST LIKE FIVE TYPES.

SO THERE WAS, UM, UH, FEWER TYPES TO SORT THINGS INTO, AND THAT THERE WAS IN THE STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN.

THERE WAS, UM, SOME STREETS THAT WERE GOING TO BE UPGRADED TO LEVELS, TO STREETS, UM, AND RECOGNITION OF THEM POTENTIALLY GETTING MORE BIKE FACILITIES OR, UM, PREMIER LEVEL PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES OR COMMON KIND OF ADDITIONAL FACILITIES.

AND THERE WAS A LOT OF INPUT FROM THE COMMUNITY WITH CONCERN THAT THIS WOULD, UM, DESTROY THE NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER OF THEIR STREETS, I GUESS, WOULD BE THE BEST WAY TO STATE THAT.

UM, SO OBVIOUSLY THAT'S A, THAT'S AN ISSUE WITH THE, UM, UH, THE STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN UPDATE, AND WHERE ARE THE THINGS ARE MAPPED, BUT I ASSUME THAT THE CRITERIA MANUAL ACTUALLY TALKS ABOUT WHAT DEFINES THOSE CATEGORIES OF STREETS.

IS THAT AN ACCURATE STATEMENT? AND I WAS WONDERING, GIVEN THE COMMUNITY, UM, A DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS, THAT REALLY, FOR ME, I'VE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS A LOT AND THAT REALLY POPPED UP OUT OF THE BLUE FOR ME LAST MONTH.

UM, I WAS CURIOUS IF YOU COULD SPEAK MORE TO, UM, YOU KNOW, UM, I GUESS THE, THE CONCERNS WE WERE HEARING THAT PEOPLE WERE THOUGHT WORRIED THAT UPGRADING THEIR STREET TO A LEVEL TWO MEANT THAT IT'S GOING TO BE, YOU KNOW, THINGS, CARS AND BIKES AND EVERYTHING ZOOMING DOWN THEIR STREET WHEN THEIR KIDS ARE PLAYING IN THE STREET.

UM, WHEREAS IT SEEMED LIKE MAYBE WE'RE DEFINING IT AS LEVEL TWO, JUST BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE HAVING AN UPGRADED SORT OF PREMIER LEVEL BIKER PEDESTRIAN FACILITY, VERSUS JUST MORE THAN JUST THE BASIC SIDEWALKS, UM, OR STREET DESIGN OR SOMETHING.

CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT A BIT MORE AND MAYBE THERE'S A WAY IN THE FUTURE TO ADDRESS SOME OF THOSE CONCERNS IN TERMS OF THE CATEGORIES OF STREETS.

IS THAT SOMETHING IN THIS PLAN? UM, THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION, COMMISSIONER AND YOU ARE EXACTLY ON POINT.

UM, SO SOME OF THE CONCERNS WE HEARD ALSO FROM, UM, THE PUBLIC HEARING THAT WE HAD ON THE, UH, ASN P AMENDMENT PROCESS IS THAT IF WE ARE UPDATING OR PROPOSING TO UPDATE A PARTICULAR STREET, IT IS ABOUT GETTING MORE RIGHT-OF-WAY TO GET MORE PAVEMENT, WHICH IS NOT THE CASE.

IT IS ABOUT, UM, WHERE THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES TO PROVIDE SIDEWALK AND BICYCLE CONNECTIVITY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND THE BEAUTY OF THAT TRANSPORTATION CRITERIA MANUAL THAT WE HAVE UPDATED IS THAT IT PROVIDES FLEXIBILITY.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU NEED, UM, SAY LIKE 80 FEET OF RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR A PARTICULAR LEVEL OF HIS STREET, AND IF THAT'S NOT EVERY LEVEL, LIKE YOU CAN GO DOWN TO ANOTHER FLEXIBLE, UM, DESIGN STANDARD OR PARAMETERS SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO ACQUIRE

[00:25:01]

MORE RIGHT AWAY, BUT YET YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIVITY THAT IS LACKING RIGHT NOW ON THE STREETS.

SO TCM IS THE TOOL THAT WOULD ALLOW THE DESIGNERS TO USE THE CONTEXT-SENSITIVE DESIGNS AND CONSIDER ALL THE CONSTRAINTS THAT THEY'RE DESIGNING UNDER, BUT YET PROVIDE ALL THESE FACILITIES THAT ARE NEEDED.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION.

AND, UM, FOR THOSE ITALIANS WHO WEREN'T HERE LAST MONTH, THAT WAS THE MONTH FOR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

THERE ARE 28 PEOPLE OR SO SIGNED UP TO SPEAK.

IT WAS THEIRS, IT WAS ENTHUSIASTIC.

UM, OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? ALL RIGHT.

SEEING NONE.

I'M GOING TO SAY THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION.

AND WE WILL MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM.

THANK YOU.

AND, UM, NEXT

[2.B. Street Impact Fee Update]

ON THE AGENDA IS ITEM TWO B THE STREET IMPACT FEE UPDATE, WHICH WE'VE HEARD A SMIDGEN ABOUT, UM, MR. COLE KITTEN ON THE LINE SOMEWHERE.

SORRY.

I BELIEVE IT'S ACTUALLY GOING TO BE CURTIS BD PRESENTING THIS.

CURTIS, ARE YOU PRESENTING THIS ONE? RIGHT.

OKAY, COOL.

OKAY.

GIVE US JUST A MOMENT TO PULL THIS UP AND WE'LL GET STARTED.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

AND CURTIS, I WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ALL CAN SEE THE, UH, SIFT PRESENTATION, CORRECT? UH, NO, WE'RE NOT ABLE TO, I CAN RUN IT FROM MY DESKTOP.

WELL, ACTUALLY I DON'T HAVE SHARECARE ABILITY.

THAT WAS GOOD.

GIVE US ONE MOMENT.

WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO PULL IT UP AGAIN AND CURTIS, YOU ALL, CAN'T SEE THIS SCREEN RIGHT WHERE YOU CAN, OR YOU CAN'T.

WE CAN NOW AT LEAST I CAN.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THE PRESENTATION'S UP, UH, WHENEVER YOU WANT TO GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, JUST SAY NEXT SLIDE AND WE'LL TAKE CARE OF THAT FOR YOU.

ABSOLUTELY.

WELL, GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS CURTIS BEATTY.

I AM THE DIVISION MANAGER FOR TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENT SERVICES WITHIN ATD.

UM, AS, UH, DANIELLE WAS SAYING, OUR GROUP IS RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWING APPLICATIONS, ZONING AND SITE PLANS, SUBDIVISIONS TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH THE TCM, BUT ALSO WILL BE THE GROUP THAT WILL BE PRIMARILY IMPLEMENTING THE STREET IMPACT FEE.

WE JUST WANTED TO TAKE A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR EVENING TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE OF WHAT HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED AND WHAT IS COMING UP.

AND WE'RE ALSO SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WE'RE BEGINNING TO GET ASKED BY THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY, AS THEY BECOME MORE AWARE OF THE IMPACT FEE.

NEXT SLIDE THERE IS, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, THE STREET EPIC IMPACT FEE BECAME APPLICABLE AS OF DECEMBER, 2020, SINCE THEN WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH QUITE A FEW THINGS LAST YEAR IN 2021, WE'RE ON TRACK TO COMPLETE OTHER ACTIVITIES IN REGARDS TO 2022 FOR THE FIRST ASSESSMENT OF STREET IMPACT FEES AT TIME OF BUILDING PERMIT IN JUNE 21ST OR 22ND, I NEED TO CHECK THAT IN JUNE OF THIS YEAR.

AND THEN AS I SAID, WE ARE BEGINNING TO GET SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE IMPACT FEE WILL BE HANDLED, WHAT ARE THEIR OPTIONS AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

AND I'D LIKE TO, TO SAMPLE SOME OF THOSE QUESTIONS WITH YOU.

SO YOU'RE AWARE OF HOW THE REACTION IS TO THE STREET BACK BASED SO FAR.

NEXT SLIDE.

OVERALL, THE TIMELINE FOR THE STREET EMPTY IMPACT DAY BEGAN WITH THE ADOPTION BY CITY COUNCIL IN DECEMBER, 2020.

UH, THERE WAS A SIX MONTH UPDATE IN 2021 TO COUNCIL OF HOW THE, UH, HOW THE IMPLEMENTATION IS GOING.

AND WE ARE QUICKLY APPROACHING THE JUNE, 2022 IMPLEMENTATION DATE WHEN IMPACT FEES WILL BE ASSESSED REQUIRED BEFORE RECEIVING BUILDING PERMIT.

UH, THERE WAS PART OF THAT ORDINANCE.

THERE IS A REQUIREMENT BY THE END OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR TO HAVE A PUBLIC FACING DASHBOARD THAT WILL SHOW HOW MUCH FEES HAVE BEEN COLLECTED IN EACH OF THE 17 SERVICE AREAS.

WHAT PROJECTS HAVE BEEN FUNDED BY THOSE FEES OR WHAT PROJECTS WILL BE COMING

[00:30:01]

UP THAT WILL RECEIVE FUNDING BY THOSE FEES.

AND I BELIEVE DAN HENNESSEY WILL SPEAK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE PROCESS AFTER THE FEES ARE COLLECTED AND HOW THEY'RE BEING SPENT AND ON WHAT PROJECTS ARE BEING ADVANCED.

AND THEN OUT THERE IN DECEMBER OF 2023, THAT BASICALLY WAS A GRANDFATHER CLAUSE OF SITE PLANS AND ZONING CASES.

IF THEY ALREADY HAD A TIA APPROVED BEFORE DECEMBER, 2020, THEY'RE ACTUALLY EXEMPT FROM THE STREET I IMPACT BASE BECAUSE THEIR MITIGATIONS ARE ALREADY BUILT INTO THEIR TIA MEMOS AND REQUIREMENTS.

AFTER DECEMBER, 2023, NO SUCH PROVISION IS PROVIDED AT EVERY SITE WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY THE STREET IMPACT FEES WITHOUT WAIVER.

NEXT SLIDE ITEMS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN AS ACCOMPLISHED LAST YEAR, WE HAVE ALREADY BEGIN DOING SOME WORKSHOPS, UH, LAST SUMMER INTO THE FALL, JUST INTRODUCING THE TOPIC OF STREET IMPACT FEES, WHAT IT MEANS, UH, FOR THEIR DEVELOPMENT REVIEW PROCESS, THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

THERE IS A SIF AND ESTIMATOR WORKSHEET ON THE SIF WEB PAGE FOR ATD.

THIS IS WHERE THEY CAN GO AND BEGIN TO ESTIMATE WHAT WOULD IT COST FOR MY DEVELOPMENT? WHAT IF I'M THINKING ABOUT A MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT, OR WHAT AM I THINKING? A SMALL SHOPPING CENTER, WHAT COULD BE THE POSSIBLE COST TO ME ON MY IMPACT FEE? BASED ON THAT INFORMATION, WE HAVE MAPPED THE PROCESS THAT WAS NECESSARILY TO MAKE SOME CHANGES WITHIN AMANDA.

UM, WE FOUND OUT IN THIS EXERCISE THAT THE BUILDING PERMITS AND THE SITE PLANS WITHIN AMANDA AREN'T CONNECTED.

AND SO WE HAD TO BUILD A CONNECTION BETWEEN THOSE TWO ELEMENTS IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE WE'RE PROCESSING THE FEES AND CAPTURING AND RECORDING THEM APPROPRIATELY WITHIN AMANDA ITSELF, THERE WILL BE A PUBLIC FACING GUIDELINE, JUST LIKE OUR TIA GUIDELINES.

IT WAS HALFWAY COMPLETE.

AND AS OF DECEMBER, AND THEN WE'RE ALSO DOING AN SOP STANDARD OPERATING PER STAFF.

SO IT GOES THROUGH WHAT BUTTON TO CLICK WHEN THEY COME INTO A BUILDING PERMITS.

AND THEN AGAIN, AS DAN HENNESSY WILL SPEAK LATER, WE'VE BEGUN IDENTIFYING THAT AND PRIORITIZING THE PROJECTS IN EACH OF THE 17 SERVICE AREAS WHERE FUNDING IS MOST NEEDED.

UM, IMMEDIATELY NEXT SLIDE.

THIS YEAR, WE ARE WELL FAT, OH, WELL INTO THE AMANDA PROGRAMMING.

AND WITHIN A WEEK OR TWO, WE ARE GOING TO BE IN A TESTBED SCENARIO SO WE CAN KICK THE TIRES INTERNALLY AS STAFF ALSO DO SOME STAFF TRAINING.

SO WHEN JUNE COMES, WE ARE PREPARED TO GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS WITH APPLICANTS.

UM, DAN WILL ALSO SPEAK IN A FEW MINUTES ABOUT THE PROJECT PART PRIORITIZATION WITH THE STREET IMPACT FEE.

THERE'S A ROADWAY CAPACITY PLAN THAT IDENTIFIES ALL THE PROJECTS THAT IS AVAILABLE FOR SIF FUNDING AND WITH OUR PR PRIORITIZATION CRITERIA.

UH, WE HAVE COMMUNICATED WITH ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS AND THE MAYOR ABOUT HOW THE SERVICE AREAS IN THEIR COUNCIL DISTRICTS ARE IMPACTED AND GET THEIR INPUT.

AND BUY-IN TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE TAKING IN CONSIDERATION SUCH AS SAFETY, EQUITY, EQUITABILITY, AND OTHER ITEMS THAT ALSO COMPLY WITH THE ORDINANCE AND STATE LAW, WHEN IT COMES TO IMPACT FEES, WE ARE CONTINUING HAVING OUTREACH WITH STAKEHOLDERS.

I'LL TOUCH ON THAT IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS.

AND WE'RE ABOUT TO COMPLETE THE GUIDELINES I WAS INFORMED TODAY THAT THEY'RE FINISHING UP THE LAST SECTION OF THAT, AND IT WILL BE READY FOR A COMPLETE REVIEW.

OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE THAT OUT TOWARDS THE END OF MAY EARLY, UH, IN, IN MAY.

SO THE COMMUNITY CAN SEE MORE OF A STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS OF THE STREET IMPACT FEE, AS THEY BEGIN TO CONSIDER, UH, SUBMITTING APPLICATIONS INTO JUNE.

UH, THE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS WILL BEGIN, AND I'M GOING TO DEFER THAT TO DAN HERE IN A FEW MINUTES, BUT FEE COLLECTION DOES START ON JUNE 21 OF THIS YEAR.

UH, AND I KEEP TELLING HIM, UH, EXECUTIVES AT ATD, WE ARE PREPARED TO COLLECT THAT MONEY.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO LEAVE ANY MONEY ON THE TABLE BECAUSE, UH, UH, ISSUES WITH TECHNOLOGY OR THE PROCESS IS NOT DEFINED, BUT WE ARE ON TRACK TO HAVE THIS FULLY IMPLEMENTED COME JUNE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AS I SAID, WE ARE DOING STAKEHOLDER OUTREACH.

BESIDES THE WEB PAGE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, WE'RE DOING MAILERS, WE'RE DOING EMAIL BLAST.

WE'RE GOING TO ATTEMPT TO DO SOME PUBLIC OUTREACH THROUGH DIFFERENT MEDIA FORMATS, AS WELL AS SOCIAL MEDIA, BUT IN PARTICULAR, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SOME DEVELOPER WORKSHOPS WHERE WE SAT DOWN WITH THE PEOPLE WHO WILL BE PULLING THE BUILDING PERMITS AND MOST LIKELY PAYING THE STREET IMPACT FEE TO LET THEM KNOW WHAT'S THE PROCESS.

ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO GO ABOUT GETTING INFORMATION AND HOW TO CONTACT US AS THEY BEGIN TO REALIZE THEIR PROJECT IS GOING TO BE, UH, SUBJECT TO THAT STREET IMPACT FEE.

AND WE CAN WALK THEM THROUGH THE PROCESS

[00:35:01]

AND ANSWER ANY PROJECT SPECIFIC QUESTIONS THEY HAVE.

WE ARE DIVIDING THIS UP INTO TWO CATEGORIES.

UH, THE BUILDING PERMIT PROCESS IS SOMETHING ATD HAS IT REALLY BEEN INTIMATE WITH, AND WE'RE REALIZING THERE ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT PULL BUILDING PERMITS OTHER THAN THE DEVELOPER OR THE APPLICANT THEMSELVES.

AND SO WE WANT TO GIVE EXTRA ATTENTION TO THOSE THAT ARE DEALING WITH ONE-OFF DEVELOPMENTS OR THE SMALLER DEVELOPMENTS, SO THAT THEY COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THE INTERACTION THAT WILL GO ON.

AND A LOT OF THE LARGER SCALE DEVELOPMENTS ARE THE BIGGER PROJECTS AND THEY HAVE, UM, ATTORNEYS AND CONSULTANTS THAT ARE PROVIDING TO THEM.

BUT WE ALSO WANT TO MAKE OURSELVES AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND GET INFORMATION AND SUGGESTIONS FROM THEM AND THE IMPLEMENTATION.

NEXT SLIDE, AS I MENTIONED, WE'RE BEGINNING TO GET SOME QUESTIONS FROM DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS.

AND I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU SOME IDEAS OF WHAT'S BEING ASKED.

WE'VE HAD SEVERAL APPLICANTS OR THOSE THAT WILL SOON BE SUBMITTING PROJECTS SAYING, IS THERE ANY DISCOUNT OR WAIVER FOR NON-PROFITS, UM, SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO PAY THE STUDENT IMPACT FEE.

AND THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS NO, THE STREET IMPACT FEE IS BASED ON, DO YOU HAVE 10 OR MORE TRIPS IN THE PM PEAK HOUR OF THE DAY? THAT IS THE CRITERIA THAT DETERMINES IF YOU NEED TO PAY THE STREET IMPACT FEE OR NOT OBVIOUSLY A RAPE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL HOUSE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TRIGGER THIS UNLESS IT'S A NEW SUBDIVISION.

AND THEN THAT'S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.

WE'VE ALSO HAD QUESTIONS LIKE, CAN I BAKE MY CREDITS SO THAT IF I DON'T USE THEM ON THIS PROJECT, I HAVE ANOTHER PROJECT COMING IN LATER THIS FALL.

I WANT TO USE THAT CREDIT IN THAT NEW PROJECT, UNLESS IT'S ON THE SAME SITE, THE TRANSFER OF CREDITS IS NOT POSSIBLE.

THAT'S VERY EXPLICIT IN THE ORDINANCE ITSELF.

WE ARE NOT TRYING TO TWIST ARMS AND EXACT AS MUCH AS WE CAN FROM EVERY DEVELOPER.

WE DON'T WANT THEM TO END UP HAVING TO PAY FULL MORE FOR SPEED IMPACT PHASE OF THE NECESSARY.

SO WE'RE GOING TO BE, UH, WORKING WITH THEM TO ENSURE WHAT THEY PAY OR WHAT THEY BUILD AS PART OF THEIR DEVELOPER IS AN ALIGNED WITH.

UH, SO THEY'RE NOT HAVING TO SPEND MORE MONEY THAN WHAT THEY WILL GET CREDIT FOR.

UM, DO, DOES THE STUDENT PACK FEE INCLUDE REDUCTIONS FOR PARKING AND TRAINS IT AND INTERNAL CAPTURE AND DO THOSE ALIGN WITH THE NEW TCM? YES.

UM, AS DANIELLE SAID, ONE OF THE THINGS THE NEW TCM DOES IS TO ACCOMMODATE THE STREET IMPACT FEE.

AND THERE ARE PROVISIONS IN THE STREET IMPACT THE ORDINANCE TO TALK ABOUT, DEPENDING ON WHAT SERVICE AREA YOU ARE FOR ED, YOU CAN GET A CERTAIN REDUCTION IN PARKING OR CERTAIN REDUCTION INDUSTRY TO UNPICK IMPACT FEE FOR YOUR PROXIMITY TO TRANSIT AND ALSO INTERNAL CAPTURE, WHICH IS MEAN TRIPS THAT WOULD COME FROM THE HOTEL THAT WILL ALSO GO TO THE RESTAURANT DOWNTOWN, UH, DOWNSTAIRS.

UH, THAT'S AN INTERNAL CAPTURE.

IT DOESN'T ACTUALLY HIT THE STREET NETWORK.

AND THEN WE'VE ALSO HAD THE QUESTION, DOES ALL AFFORDABLE HOUSING, GIVE ME A REDUCTION IN MY S UH, ASSESSED STREET IMPACT FEE.

THE SIP ORDINANCE DOES ALLOW FOR A REDUCTION, UM, BROUGHT OFF THE TOP, IF YOU HAVE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN YOUR DEVELOPMENT.

HOWEVER, THE DEFINITION OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THE STREET IMPACT FEE IS NO HIGHER THAN 60% MFI.

SO THE DEVELOPER WANTS TO SAY 10% OF MY UNITS ARE GOING TO BE AT 80% MFI.

UNFORTUNATELY THAT WOULD NOT COUNT AS A REDUCTION IN REGARDS TO THE STREET IMPACT FEE.

I THINK THAT IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE ITEMS WE'RE REALLY GOING TO HAVE TO WORK WITH THE DEVELOPERS FOR AS THEY START MAKING SOME ASSUMPTIONS OF THEIR IMPACT BEING AND THEIR INDIVIDUAL FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE, THAT THEY ARE NOT ASSUMING THAT ALL AFFORDABLE HOUSING WILL GET THEM THROUGH THESE REDUCTIONS.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL BE WILLING TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR THAT PRESENTATION AS WE GET NEW, GET THE IMAGES ON, ARE THERE ANY COMMISSIONERS WITH QUESTIONS? ANYBODY READY? YES.

SAM, WELL, WHAT'S EXCUSE ME.

SORRY.

WHAT'S THE THOUGHT PROCESS BEHIND NON-PROFITS NOT HAVING SOME SORT OF REDUCTION IN, UH, THE IMPACT FEE.

OKAY.

I AM GOING TO THE FIRST, SLIGHTLY TO UDL, UM, ON THIS ONE, BECAUSE THAT WAS PART OF THE POLITICS POLICY DISCUSSION, BUT ONE OF THE LOGIC IS ALL DEVELOPMENTS THAT GENERATE TRIPS ARE HAVING AN IMPACT ON THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM.

AND ACCORDING TO THE LDC DEVELOPMENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO OFFSET THAT IMPACT TO THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM.

SO EVEN SUCH AS A SCHOOL, UM, IT DOES GENERATE MANY TRIPS THAT HAS AN IMPACT AND, UH, USES THE TRANSPORTATION IN THE CITY.

AND SO THEY SHOULD HAVE SOME RESPONSIBILITIES TO PAYING FOR THE NEW TRAFFIC THAT THEY'RE GENERATING OPAL.

NO, I THINK YOU'VE COVERED IT ALL AND PROVIDED EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY ANYWAY.

SO THANK

[00:40:01]

YOU.

ALRIGHT, THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UM, ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? THEY MIGHT GET SOME QUESTIONS AFTER, UH, DAN GIVES HIS PRESENTATION ABOUT CAPACITY.

UM, I DO HAVE ONE QUESTION JUST SORT OF GENERALLY THOUGH.

SO THIS GOES INTO EFFECT AT THE SAME TIME, THE NEW TCM OR TRANSPORTATION CRITERIA MANUAL GOES INTO EFFECT.

SO PROJECTS THAT ARE IN THE PIPELINE BEFORE THIS JUNE DATE, DO THEY HAVE TO SUDDENLY TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT OR IS IT ONLY PROJECTS THAT START FROM SCRATCH AFTER THAT JUNE DATE? YES, WE, AS STAFF HAVE HAD DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THIS, OBVIOUSLY ANYTHING SUBMITTED AFTER JUNE, UM, THEY WILL HAVE TO COMPLY COMPLETELY WITH THE NEW TCM AND THEN OBVIOUSLY THE STREET IMPACT FEE WOULD BE ASSESSED AGAINST THEM.

UH, WE'RE TRYING, WE'RE GOING TO MAKE A LITTLE BIT OF A JUDGMENT CALL IF THEY ARE CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW AND THEY ARE VERY NEAR GETTING THEIR PERMIT SUCH AS THE SECOND OR THIRD REVISION AND THERE'S MINOR DETAILS.

WE ARE GOING TO FORCE THEM TO SWITCH EVERYTHING TO THE NE NEW TCM.

WE'RE GOING TO ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE UNDER THE OLD TCM.

SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO DO MAJOR DESIGN UPDATES IN MID-PROCESS.

UH, IF THEY HAVE SUBMITTED SOMETHING LET'S SAY IN MAY, AND IT'S THEIR FIRST REVIEW, WE ARE GOING TO SUGGEST THAT THEY USE THE NEW TCM, UM, IT AT FORMAL SUBMITTAL.

OKAY.

THANK.

AND IF, YOU KNOW, I THINK AS LONG AS IT'S CLEAR TO DEVELOPERS, THEN THAT'S A GOOD TRY.

WHATEVER THE DECISION IS, JUST, YOU KNOW, SOFT IS COMMUNICATED CLEARLY.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY MORE QUESTIONS? OKAY, WELL THEN LET'S

[2.C. Street Impact Fee Roadway Capacity Presentation]

MOVE RIGHT INTO THE VERY RELATED STREET IMPACT FEE CAPACITY PRESENTATION FROM FORMER COMMISSIONER DAN HENNESSY.

HEY DAN.

THANKS CHAIR, CHAMPION.

SORRY TO ADDRESS YOU SO FORMALLY, UH, YEAH, I'M GONNA DO A BRIEF PRESENTATION TYING THE LAST TWO TOPICS TOGETHER.

UM, BOTH HOW WE'RE GOING TO BUILD OUT SOME OF THE TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE AND HOW WE'RE GOING TO DO IT, THE, UH, THE, UM, STREET IMPACT FEE.

UM, SO IT'D BE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW THAT MONEY ACTUALLY GETS UTILIZED, UM, DOWN THE ROAD.

UM, SO THANKS AGAIN FOR, FOR HAVING THE COMMISSIONERS, UM, DAN HENNESSY WITH THE SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT DIVISION AND I LEAD THE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR, UH, ATD.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WHAT I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT TODAY WAS A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE SIF RELATED TO THE GUARDRAILS THAT IT PROVIDES FOR HOW WE SPEND THE MONEY AND THEN WALK THROUGH HOW WE'RE CURRENTLY THINKING ABOUT THAT, UM, IN ORDER TO PREPARE TO SPEND THE MONEY AND ALSO, UH, JUST SORT OF HOW THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AND DEFINED FOR US THROUGH BOTH OUR TECHNICAL STUDY AND, UM, THE CITY COUNCIL ORDINANCE THAT APPROVED THE PROGRAM.

UM, AND THEN, UH, AGAIN, I'M SURE THERE WILL BE QUESTIONS AT THE END BECAUSE THIS IS A LOT OF, UH, UM, TECHNICAL GUIDANCE, UH, BUT IT'S ALSO INTERPRETING POLICY TO SOME DEGREE.

UM, SO THERE'S A LOT OF ROOM FOR INTERPRETATION AND, AND FRANKLY, STILL A LOT OF DECISIONS TO BE MADE.

AND IF I PLEASE, UM, SO THE TEXAS STATE LAW PUT, UM, UH, GUIDANCES IN PLACE OR MORE THAN HAS RULES IN PLACE ABOUT HOW WE CAN SPEND STREET IMPACTS.

THEY CAN ONLY FUND ROADWAY CAPACITY PROJECTS.

UM, THERE ARE SOME INTERPRETATIONS AROUND THAT THAT WE WILL GET TO IN A FEW MINUTES, BUT THAT IS A KEY FEATURE OF THIS THAT WE HAVE TO, SO THAT NONE OF US ENDED UP IN JAIL DOWN THE ROAD.

UM, WE ALSO HAVE REQUIREMENTS TO DEFINE THE CITY IN SPECIFIC AREAS SUCH THAT MONEY COLLECTED IN AN AREA IS ALSO SPENT IN THAT SAME AREA.

UM, AND SO WE DID A TECHNICAL STUDY TO ESSENTIALLY ASSESS THE ANTICIPATED DEVELOPMENT IN EACH OF THOSE SERVICE AREAS AND ASSESS THE NEED FOR ROADWAY CAPACITY IN THOSE AREAS AND DEFINE A MAXIMUM AMOUNT THAT A FEE COULD BE ASSESSED IN EACH OF THOSE AREAS.

THERE'S A MAXIMUM DISTANCE TO THE, THOSE AREAS NO MORE THAN SIX MILES.

AND SO, AS A RESULT, WE HAD TO CREATE 17 DIFFERENT AREAS THROUGHOUT THE CITY THAT ALSO ALLOW THE DIFFERENT SERVICE AREAS TO MAKE SENSE AND, UM, YOU KNOW, NOT SPEND MONEY ACROSS PERHAPS, UH, NATURAL OR UNNATURAL BOUNDARIES.

UM, SO THE FEE WAS ADAPTED AS KURT MENTIONED IN DECEMBER OF 2020, BUT THE COUNCIL ORDINANCE THAT APPROVED IT, THAT NOTHING WOULD BE COLLECTED UNTIL THIS JUNE.

UM, ALL OF THAT, THAT HE GENERALLY WENT OVER BEFORE.

NOW, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE MAP THAT WILL BE ON

[00:45:01]

THE SLIDE SHOWS THE LAYOUT OF THE SERVICE AREAS.

GENERALLY BOUNDARIES ARE MAJOR TRANSPORTATION, UM, FACILITIES 35, A 180 3 MOPAC, UH, THE LAKE, UM, ALL ARE SERVE AS BOUNDARIES TO, UH, TO HELP DEFINE THIS PROGRAM.

ONE NOTE HERE IS THAT DOWNTOWN HAD ITS OWN, UM, AREA, UM, PARTIALLY TO HELP TO DEFINE, UM, BOTH DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENTS, NOT INFLUENCING, UH, THE NEEDS FROM SOME OF THE OTHER SERVICE AREAS, BUT ALSO NOT, UM, TAKING AWAY THE FUNDING FROM THOSE AREAS TOO.

SO WE WANTED THAT TO BE ITS OWN SEPARATE AREA, JUST BECAUSE IT'S SUCH A SPECIFIC CASE AND WE DIDN'T WANT IT TO, UM, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER THE IMPLICATIONS OF THAT BEING PART OF A BIGGER SERVICE AREA WHERE WE DIDN'T WANT THAT TO, TO AFFECT DECISION-MAKING AND IJ OR ELLA THEY'RE DEFINED ON THAT MAP.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO I SAID THAT THEY CAN PAY FOR CAPACITY RELATED PROJECTS.

UM, THE WAY THOSE ARE DEFINED IS THAT THEY CAN BE, UH, ROADWAY, WIDENINGS.

THEY CAN BE NEW ROADWAYS, THEY CAN BE TURN LANES, UM, THAT, UH, IMPROVE, UH, ROADWAYS, OR THEY CAN BE IMPROVEMENTS TO SUBSTANDARD STREET PROJECTS.

UM, AND MATH GETS INTO A DEFINITION THAT WILL AFFECT OUR PRIORITIZATION AND IN A FEW MOMENTS.

UM, BUT THOSE ARE THE, THE KIND OF FOUR CATEGORIES OF PROJECTS THAT THESE CAN DEFINE OR THAT THESE FEES CAN BUILD.

UM, THEY ALSO CAN DO INTERSECTION CA CAPACITY IMPROVEMENTS, WHICH ARE SIGNALS ROUNDABOUTS, TURNING LANES AS NECESSARY.

TYPICALLY THOSE ARE IDENTIFIED AS PART OF THE CORRIDORS THAT WE'VE DEFINED, BUT THERE ARE SOME STANDALONE INTERSECTIONS, UM, THAT ARE IDENTIFIED IN THE TECHNICAL STUDY.

THE FEES CAN ALSO BE USED TO DO SURVEY AND LAND ACQUISITION, ACQUIRING THE ACTUAL RIGHT OF WAY TO HELP FACILITATE SOME OF THESE PROJECTS IF NECESSARY.

AND LASTLY, THEY CAN BE USED TO HELP US DO PLANNING AND DESIGN AROUND THESE PROJECTS.

THEY CAN NOT BE USED FOR ANY PROJECT THAT'S NOT INCLUDED IN THE TECHNICAL STUDY.

THEY CAN NOT BE USED FOR OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE OF EXISTING ROADWAYS.

THEY CANNOT BE USED FOR THE ADMINISTRATIVE COST OF OPERATING THE PROGRAM.

SO THAT IS ALL FUNDED THROUGH SEPARATE ENTITY.

SO EVERY DOLLAR THAT WE COLLECT THROUGH THIS FEE WILL GET USED TOWARDS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF, UH, THE PROJECTS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE, UM, PROGRAM, UM, ACROSS THE 17 AREAS HAVE 1,148 PROJECTS, UM, DEFINED ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAD TO WRAP OUR MINDS AROUND WHEN WE WERE STARTING TO THINK ABOUT HOW THIS WOULD GET IMPLEMENTED IS THAT IT'S NOT ONE LIST OF, UM, 1100 PROJECTS.

IT'S 17 DIFFERENT LISTS OF 20 TO 100 PROJECTS, UM, BECAUSE OF, BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT THE FUNDING IS RESTRICTED TO THE SERVICE AREAS.

UM, THE TECHNICAL STUDY DEFINED A MAXIMUM, UH, FEE FOR EACH OF THE SERVICE AREAS.

CITY COUNCIL SET ONE FEE ACROSS THE CITY.

UM, I THINK FOR SIMPLICITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY.

AND SO ALL OF THE SERVICE AREAS ARE FUNDED AT DIFFERENT LEVELS.

SOME ARE FUNDED AT A MAXIMUM ANTICIPATED REVENUE OF LESS THAN 5% OF THE TOTAL NEED.

SOME ARE UP TO 85% OF THE TOTAL NEED.

AND THAT IS FRANKLY JUST HELPFUL INFORMATION WITH RESPECT TO, UM, HOW MUCH PLANNING AND DESIGN WORK WE NEED TO DO IN THOSE SERVICE AREAS AND HOW MANY PROJECTS WE NEED TO GET READY.

UM, SO AGAIN, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, THE, THE PROJECTS, YOU KNOW, THAT SUBSET OF INTERSECTION PROJECTS, AND THEN, UM, THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF ROADWAY SEGMENT PROJECTS.

I ALSO FORGOT TO MENTION THAT IN CERTAIN AREAS THAT THERE AREN'T A TON OF THESE, BUT WE CAN DO, UH, CONVERSIONS OF ONE WAY STREETS TO TWO WAY STREETS.

THOSE ARE CAPACITY ADD PROJECTS, UM, AND THAT THERE ARE CERTAINLY SOME OF THOSE TARGETED IN DOWNTOWN AND, UH, AROUND THE, THE URBAN CORE, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO WITH THOSE REVENUE PROJECTIONS, UM, AND THE, OR THE LAND USE PROJECTIONS AND THE, UH, UH, FEE THAT THE COUNCIL SET, WE WOULD ANTICIPATE ASSESSING ABOUT $780 MILLION OVER THE 10 YEAR PERIOD THAT THE, UH, THAT THE TECHNICAL STUDY ASSESSES FOR, UH, DEVELOPMENT.

UM, BUT AS CURTIS SAID, DEVELOPMENTS CAN EARN REDUCTIONS.

AND SO WE KNOW THAT, UM, WE'RE NOT GOING TO SEE $780 MILLION LIKELY.

UM, WE'VE ALREADY LOST 15% OF THE ASSUMED REVENUE BASED ON THE 18 MONTH GRACE PERIOD.

UM, THERE ARE REDUCTIONS BASED ON THE ACTUAL ANTICIPATED TRIP GENERATION OF THE DEVELOPMENTS FOR PROXIMITY TO TRANSIT REDUCED PARKING PROVISION, UM, AND A MIX OF USES.

AND THEN AS, UH, WE'LL ALSO BE CREDITING FOR AFFORDABLE

[00:50:01]

HOUSING AND FOR REDEVELOPMENT OF EXISTING PROPERTIES, SUCH THAT IT IS REALLY AN EVALUATION OF NET NEW TRIP GENERATION TO THE ROADWAY NETWORK.

SO WITH THAT THOSE REDUCTIONS, WE'RE ANTICIPATING SOMETHING MORE ON THE ORDER OF $460 MILLION OVER THE NEXT EIGHT AND A HALF YEARS, WHICH IS STILL MORE THAN $50 MILLION A YEAR.

IT'S DEFINITELY NO SMALL CHANGE, BUT THAT IS ONLY ABOUT 15% OF THE TOTAL NEED IDENTIFIED WITHIN THE, UH, THE, UM, TECHNICAL STUDY.

AND THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL REDUCTIONS FOR OTHER TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS THAT ARE BUILT BY DEVELOPERS, UM, THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW PROCESS.

SO, UH, JUST TRYING TO SET THE SCALE FOR WHAT THIS PROGRAM MIGHT DO AND REALLY WHY THERE WAS SUCH A NEED FOR A PRIORITIZATION OF THE 1100 PROJECTS, UM, ACROSS THE 17 SERVICE AREA.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UH, ONCE WE UNDERSTOOD THE LEVEL OF FUNDING WE HAD TO REVIEW ESSENTIALLY THE 20 TO A HUNDRED PROJECTS IN EACH SERVICE AREA AND TRY TO RANK THEM IN SOME MATERIAL WAY THAT IS BOTH, UH, CONSISTENT WITH THE ASAP AND ALSO OBJECTIVE, UM, AND BASED IN, UM, OUR PRIORITIES, OUR VALUES AND, UH, THE DATA THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE TO US.

UM, ONCE WE MOVE FORWARD FROM THAT LIST, THEN WE WILL BEGIN WORKING THROUGH THOSE PRIORITIZED PROJECTS AND TRYING TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF THEM.

UH, WE KNOW THAT RIGHT AWAY, IT MIGHT NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL THE PROJECTS IDENTIFIED.

WE KNOW THAT THE PREFERRED, UM, SCHEMATIC PLAN FOR EACH OF THOSE PROJECTS MAY NOT MAKE THE PLANS ELIGIBLE.

YOU KNOW, THE BASED ON THE RIGHT OF WAY CONSTRAINTS, THE NEED FOR SIDEWALKS, BIKE LANES, TRANSIT IMPROVEMENTS, AND THE VEHICLE CAPACITY IMPROVEMENTS.

IN CERTAIN CASES, THE VEHICLE CAPACITY IMPROVEMENT MIGHT BE THE THING THAT IS NOT PRIORITIZED AS PART OF THE ULTIMATE DESIGN, BUT THOSE ARE THINGS WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT NOW SUCH THAT AS THE MONEY IS COLLECTED, UH, WE'RE ABLE TO SPEND IT.

UM, I SHOULD MENTION THAT MONEY, UH, EVERY DOLLAR THAT'S COLLECTED NEEDS TO BE SPENT WITHIN 10 YEARS OF ITS COLLECTION.

OTHERWISE THE PAYEE CAN ASK FOR THAT BACK.

UM, SO WE, WE DO NEED TO, WE ARE TRACKING THAT AND WE DO NEED TO BE AWARE OF, UM, THE AGE OF THE DOLLARS AVAILABLE TO US IN EACH SERVICE AREA, AND THEN ACTUALLY HAVE A PLAN TO SUSPEND THEM.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO IN ORDER TO DO THIS, WE REVIEWED THE EFMP, GIVEN THE, UM, FAIRLY RECENT, UM, MAJOR ENGAGEMENT PROCESS FOR THAT, WHERE THE COMMUNITY TOLD US WHAT OUR MOBILITY GOALS WERE AND HELPED US RANK THEM IN TERMS OF, UH, PRIORITIES ACROSS THE CITY.

AND SO WE REALLY TRIED TO KEEP THIS IN MIND FOR DETERMINING, UM, WHAT OUR METRICS WOULD BE.

WE CONSIDERED MORE THAN 80 METRICS FOR PRIORITIZATION, UH, HELPING US TO CREATE THE PRIORITIZATION CRITERIA.

UM, A LOT OF THE METRICS WERE VERY CORRELATED WITH ONE ANOTHER, A LOT OF 'EM HAD INCONSISTENT DATA.

UM, AND SO SEVERAL OF THEM GOT RULED OUT QUICKLY.

UH, WE ENDED UP WITH GOING WITH JUST 20 TO HELP US, UM, THAT REFLECT, UH, THE MULTI-MODAL PRIORITIES OF THE ASMP.

AND ALSO WHAT, UH, VOTERS HAVE RECENTLY TOLD US THROUGH THE 2016 AND 2020 MOBILITY BONDS, UH, ABOUT WHAT MATTERS TO THEM.

UM, SO THEY DO REFLECT A MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION NETWORK, A SAFER TRANSPORTATION NETWORK AND A HEALTHIER TRANSPORTATION NETWORK.

UM, AND SO THAT IS, UH, REFLECTED, I THINK, THROUGHOUT THE METRICS, DESPITE THIS BEING A ROBOTIC CAPACITY BASED PROGRAM, UM, X, Y PLUS, I WON'T GO THROUGH ALL OF THESE, BUT THIS GIVES YOU A SENSE OF, OF WHAT WE WERE DOING WITH THOSE MOBILITY GOALS.

UH, WE, WE ESSENTIALLY SCORED EVERY PROJECT ACROSS SEVEN, SEVEN DIFFERENT VALUES.

UM, THOSE ARE AT THE TOP AND HOW THEY RELATE TO THE SPECIFIC MOBILITY GOALS.

AND THEN WE USE SOME OF THE BULLETS REFLECT SOME OF THE CRITERIA THAT WERE USED.

UM, SO, YOU KNOW, IT'S RANKING ON OUR VISION ZERO LIST.

UM, HISTORICALLY UNDER-INVESTED AREAS OF THE CITY OR SOCIOECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED AREAS OF THE CITY.

WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THOSE AREAS WERE HIGHLIGHTED NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE THE SPECIFIC PROJECT IS GOING TO HELP OR POTENTIALLY HARM THOSE, UM, HISTORICAL INEQUITIES, BUT SO THAT WE LOOK AT IT VERY CLOSELY AND, AND ENGAGE THAT COMMUNITY, UM, TO SEE IF, IF THERE IS AN INVESTMENT THAT, THAT COULD MAKE THINGS BETTER AND RIGHT COME PAST WRONGS.

UM, WE'VE ALSO BEEN PRETTY CONSCIOUS ABOUT, UM, THE

[00:55:01]

ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS AND CREATING A MORE RESILIENT TRANSPORTATION NETWORK.

UM, AND SO THAT'S, THAT'S REFLECTED IN THIS TOO.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND I, I DON'T WANT TO, UM, GET SHORT SHRIFT TO THE VEHICLE CAPACITY ELEMENTS.

UM, TH THAT, THAT IS CERTAINLY A FACTOR IN THIS, UM, THOSE ELEMENTS ARE INCLUDED, UH, IN SOME WAYS THEY'RE, THEY HELP TO PRIORITIZE PROJECTS WHERE WE'RE LOOKING FOR A, UH, CONSISTENT AND RELIABLE TRANSPORTATION NETWORK, BUT IN SOME, IN SOME CASES THEY HURT THE SCORING OF PROJECTS WHERE THEY MIGHT NOT BE THE MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.

UM, AND SO ALL OF THAT WAS TRIED TO TRY TO BE EVALUATED OBJECTIVELY AND TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION, UM, ACROSS EACH OF THE SERVICE AREAS.

UM, SO AGAIN, YOU'LL STILL NOTICE TOO, THAT SOME OF THE, UM, UH, DIFFERENT METRICS WERE USED ACROSS DIFFERENT VALUES.

WE FELT LIKE THOSE REFLECTED, UM, VERY WELL THE, THE DIFFERENT VALUES THAT WE WERE TRYING TO EVALUATE.

UM, AND SO WE, WE WEIGHTED THEM DIFFERENTLY AND, AND COMBINED THEM IN DIFFERENT WAYS, BUT WE FELT LIKE IT GAVE US BOTH A, UM, OBJECTIVE WAY TO DO THIS, BUT ALSO A, UM, VALUE BASED WAY TO PRIORITIZE THESE PROJECTS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, SO ONCE WE HAVE THE PROCESS FIGURED WE HAVE A DRAFT LIST IN EVERY SERVICE AREA.

UM, A LOT OF THESE PROJECTS OVERLAP WITH PLANNING AND DESIGN THAT HAS BEEN DONE OVER THE LAST BY TWO, EIGHT YEARS, UM, INCLUDING THINGS FROM THE 2016 THROUGH 2020 MOBILITY BONDS.

UH, SEVERAL OF THESE CORRIDORS ARE ALSO PROJECT CONNECTS CORRIDORS.

UM, SOME OF THEM HAVE OVERLAPPING BOUNDARIES WITH TEXTILE AND TRAVIS COUNTY PROJECTS AND THE CORRIDOR PROGRAM OFFICE ALSO.

SO MORE THAN 250 PROJECTS ALREADY HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE OR ARE IN THE PROCESS OF HAVING ONE RIGHT NOW, ONCE WE FIGURED THAT OUT WHERE SOMEBODY ELSE IS DOING THE PLANNING AND SCHEMATIC WORKFORCE, WE TRIED TO IDENTIFY WHICH DOESN'T HAVE COMMITTED FUNDING.

UM, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PROJECTS FROM THE 2016 MOBILITY BOND THAT HAD FUNDING IN PLACE FOR PLANNING AND DESIGN, BUT NOT FOR CONSTRUCTION.

UM, THIS IS A PLACE THAT WE COULD USE THAT MONEY TO SUPPLEMENT THOSE PROJECTS.

IF THE ULTIMATE CHROMATIC WAS ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING THROUGH, UH, THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE STATE LAW.

UM, WE ALSO TRIED TO LOOK AT THE ANTICIPATED FUNDING IN EACH SERVICE AREA SO THAT WE KNEW HOW MANY PROJECTS NEEDED TO GET READY, UM, BASED ON WHAT WAS ALREADY READY AND THE REVENUE THAT WE ANTICIPATE, AND THEN ESSENTIALLY TRY TO FIGURE OUT A WORK PLAN FOR THE NEXT 18 MONTHS TO START PLANNING AND DESIGNING A BUNCH OF PROJECTS.

UM, THIS IS, UH, I THINK NOT INTENDED TO BE A PRIORITIZATION OF WHERE WE'RE GOING TO SEND THE MONEY NECESSARILY.

THAT'LL INVOLVE A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS AND, YOU KNOW, THE REVENUE PROJECTIONS, WE THINK WE, I MEAN, WE MADE OUR BEST GUESTS AS BASED ON THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE, BUT WE'LL HAVE TO REEVALUATE F MONEY COME THE END OF JUNE.

UM, WE'VE REVIEWED THIS LIST WITH EACH, UM, COUNCIL MEMBER'S OFFICE, INCLUDING THE MAYOR'S OFFICE, UM, FOR FEEDBACK ON THE SERVICE AREAS THAT ARE IN THEIR DISTRICTS AND HIGHLIGHTING PROJECTS FOR US THAT ARE ON THERE, THEN MAYBE WE NEED TO RETHINK, OR THAT WERE NOT ON THERE THAT NEEDED TO SHOW UP ON THE LIST.

I WILL SAY THAT WE HAVE FAIRLY BROAD SUPPORT FOR BOTH THE METHODOLOGY AND THE ULTIMATE LIST.

I WOULD SAY WE MAYBE HAD ONE PROJECT THAT CAME OFF, UM, AND MAYBE THREE THAT WERE ADDED FOR THAT WERE ADDED, UM, OUT OF THE 35 OR SO THAT WE SELECTED ACROSS DIFFERENT SERVICE AREAS.

SO THE, UH, QUANTITATIVE METHODOLOGY DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF IDENTIFYING THAT FOR US.

AND WE CONFIRMED THAT TOO, IN THAT THE QUANTITATIVE METHODOLOGY HIGHLIGHTED A LOT OF PROJECT CONNECTS CORRIDORS, UH, 2016 MOBILITY BOND CORRIDORS THAT WE ARE THEN KIND OF GOING TO THE SECOND LEVEL OF ARTERIAL AND COLLECTOR TO FIX SOME OF THOSE ISSUES, UM, THROUGH THIS PROGRAM.

UM, AGAIN, THIS IS ESSENTIALLY A DRAFT LIST FOR US TO BE WORKING ON PLANNING AND DESIGNING PROJECTS PROJECTS.

UM, SO THERE'S NOTHING SACRED ABOUT THE LIST AS IT'S DEVELOPED.

UM, BUT WE DO NEED TO KNOW WHERE TO BE, UM, WORKING SUCH THAT AS MONEY IS READY, WE DELIVER IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CITIZENS AS FAST AS WE CAN.

UM, AND SO, UH, THIS WILL ALL GET POSTED.

THIS IS ESSENTIALLY OUR LAST, UH, OPPORTUNITY FOR CONFIRMATION BEFORE WE PUBLISH IT.

AND THEN WE WILL OPEN IT UP TO THE PUBLIC FOR REVIEW OF THEIR DISTRICT REVIEW OF THEIR SERVICE AREA AND LET US KNOW, YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY YOU GUYS MISSED THIS PROJECT.

THIS REALLY NEEDS TO BE A PRIORITY, AND WE CAN, UH, REITERATE FROM THERE, UH, MY FIREPLACE.

[01:00:02]

SO THE ACTUAL PROCESS THAT WE'LL BE, UM, GOING THROUGH MOVING FORWARD AFTER THE PRIORITIZATION IS TO FIND ALL OF THE PROJECTS THAT LINK TOGETHER.

WE'LL SH I'LL SHOW THAT IN JUST A SLIDE OR TWO ON, ON A MAP, UM, WORK THROUGH THE FEASIBLE SCHEMATIC DESIGNS THAT ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE ASAP, CONSISTENT WITH THE TCM.

UM, THIS WILL BE WHERE WE USE THAT AND ARE ALREADY USING IT TO HELP GUIDE SOME OF OUR DESIGN DECISIONS OR DESIGN OPTIONS.

I SHOULDN'T SAY DECISIONS.

THEY'RE JUST WORKING THROUGH WHAT'S FEASIBLE AND WHAT'S NOT.

AND THEN WE'LL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THOSE, UM, WITH THE COMMUNITY.

WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS ENSURE THAT THOSE OPTIONS ARE ACTUALLY ELIGIBLE FOR STREET IMPACT THE FUNDING.

AND, UH, LIKE I MENTIONED EARLIER, UH, I'M SURE WE'LL END UP IN A PLACE WHERE SOME OF THEM ARE NOT, UM, AND THAT MIGHT BE OKAY, BUT WE JUST NEED TO BE AWARE OF THAT FOR, UM, THE IMPLICATIONS OF ACTUALLY SPENDING THE MONEY.

AND SO THAT WILL ALL LEAD INTO A, EACH PROJECT WILL HAVE A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND FEEDBACK PROCESS THAT WE WILL WORK THROUGH THE OPTIONS.

AND THEN THE PLANS ARE LIKELY TO SIT ON A SHELF FOR A SHORT TIME.

UM, BUT WE WILL HAVE A VERY CLEAR VISION OF WHAT THE FUTURE LOOKS LIKE.

I WILL NO LONGER JUST BE A LINE ON A MAP SAYING, HERE'S, WHAT'S GOING TO BE THERE, BUT THIS IS WHAT'S GOING TO LOOK LIKE WHILE WE WAIT FOR THE REVENUE TO BE COLLECTED AND ACCOUNTED TO THE DIFFERENT SERVICE AREA FUNDS.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

TH THE PROCESS SPECIFICALLY, YOU KNOW, THIS FIRST PART OF IT IS ESPECIALLY INTERNAL, UM, MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE OUR T'S CROSSED AND I'S DOTTED IN TERMS OF COMPLYING WITH STATE LAW ADHERING TODAY, S AND P UM, BEING CONSISTENT WITH THE TCM, AND THEN ALSO THAT WE, THESE ARE IMPORTANT TO SHARE IN TERMS OF TIMING, UM, WITH RESPECT TO THE ANTICIPATED REVENUE.

UM, I'D MENTIONED WE'VE GOT 17 SERVICE AREAS, MORE THAN 35 PROJECTS.

AND, UM, THIS PROGRAM RIGHT NOW IS ASKING A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH OTHER MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES TO HELP ME DO THAT.

UM, SO WE ARE, WE ARE STRETCHING THIN.

AND SO THE PRIORITIZATION IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO, AS STAFF TO MAKE SURE THAT, UM, WE'RE NOT WASTING ANYBODY'S TIME.

UM, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND THEN AGAIN, ONCE WE HAVE THOSE PLANS READY, THEN WE WILL MOVE INTO A PUBLIC PROCESS WHERE WE SHARE THOSE GIFTS FEEDBACK, UM, REVIEW TALK ABOUT WHAT THE OPTIONS MEAN IN TERMS OF BEING ABLE TO FUND, BEING ABLE TO BUILD NOW VERSUS HAVING TO WAIT POTENTIALLY AS WE MIGHT HAVE TO ACQUIRE RIGHT WAY OR, OR BUILD SMALLER SEGMENTS OF
