[1.a. Approval of the March 2, 2022 Environmental Commission Regular Meeting Minutes and the March 30, 2022 Environmental Commission Special Called Meeting Minutes (5 minutes)]

UH, AGENDA ITEM ONE A, UH, MINUTES.

ALL RIGHT.

PERFECT.

UM, AGENDA ITEM TWO, A

[2.a. Election of Environmental Commission Officers for May 1, 2022 through April 30, 2023 term (10 minutes)]

FOR THE ELECTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION OFFICERS FROM MAY 1ST OF THIS YEAR THROUGH APRIL 30TH OF NEXT YEAR, DO WE HAVE ANY PRESENTATION OR ANYTHING? AND WE'RE JUST GONNA GO THROUGH IT.

THAT'S FINE.

KAYLA CHAMP AND WATERSHED PROTECTION.

UH, YES, I KNOW WE RECENTLY JUST HAD AN EMERGENCY OFFICER ELECTION, BUT THIS IS THE ELECTION THAT WE ARE REQUIRED TO DO EVERY YEAR.

SO WE'LL HAVE TO ALSO GO THROUGH THE APPOINTMENT AGAIN.

PERFECT.

FOR ALL OF THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN UNDERWHELMED BY OUR PERFORMANCE IN THE LAST TWO MEETINGS, I LIKE TO MAKE UP MOTION.

YES.

MA'AM.

I MOVED THAT WE, UM, UH, REELECT, UH, THE CURRENT OFFICERS.

CAN WE DO THAT IN ONE FELL SWOOP, KAYLA, AS LONG AS EVERYONE'S IN AGREEMENT, I THINK IT'S OKAY.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

WE'VE GOT A MOTION AND A SECOND FROM THOMPSON TO KEEP THE CURRENT ELECTED OFFICERS, WHICH IS ME AS CHAIR BEDFORD AS VICE CHAIR AND BRISTOL, HIS SECRETARY.

UM, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE, OR RAISE YOUR HAND AND ALL THOSE OPPOSED, SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU GUYS.

UM, THE RAIN CONTINUES TO BE, UH,

[2.b. Nominate a new member for the South Central Waterfront Advisory Board (5 minutes)]

NOMINATE A NEW MEMBER FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT ADVISORY BOARD, KAYLA CHAMPION WATERSHED PROTECTION.

I'LL JUST MAKE A QUICK NOTE ABOUT THE NEXT TWO NOMINATIONS FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT ADVISORY BOARD ON THE JOINT SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE.

THESE ARE BOTH COUNCIL COMMITTEES, SO WE ARE, THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION WILL APPOINT A MEMBER AND THEN COUNCIL WILL HAVE TO DO THE, UM, AFTER, YOU KNOW, I'M SORRY, AFTER ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION NOMINATES MEMBERS FOR THESE, THEN THE COUNCIL WILL APPOINT MEMBERS AT THE NEXT AVAILABLE COUNCIL MEETING FOR BOTH OF THESE POSITIONS.

AND, UM, SO THERE'S ONE FOR SOUTH CENTRAL AND THEN THE PRIMARY SEAT FOR JOINT SUSTAINABILITY, AND THEN THE BACKUP FOR DRAIN SUSTAINABILITY AND CAITLIN NOT TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT, BUT DO YOU MIND, OR, OR LIZ, IF IT'S BETTER, UH, KIND OF GIVING A BRIEF INTRO WHAT THESE TWO, UH, I GUESS ADVISORY BOARDS ARE WHAT THEIR PURPOSES AND MAYBE THE ORDER OF MAGNITUDE OF EFFORT THAT WOULD

[00:05:01]

BE INVOLVED IN BEING ON THEM.

UM, I MIGHT DEFER TO MS. COYNE ON THE JOINT SUSTAINABILITY COMMUNITY.

UM, THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT ADVISORY BOARD, UM, IS A BOARD CREATED TO HELP GUIDE THE VISION AND THE PLAN FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT AREA, WHICH IS, UM, OUR LONG LADY BIRD LAKE ENCOMPASSING, THE STATESMAN SITE, BUT, UM, AND THE SURROUNDING AREA LOT, UM, LOTS INCLUDING ONE TEXAS CENTER AND, UM, THE, UH, TECHSTOP PROPERTIES ALONG THERE.

SO IT'S A, IT'S A VERY HIGH PROFILE AREA.

UM, THERE HAS BEEN, UM, A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS SURROUNDING THAT AREA, UM, UM, RECENTLY.

SO, UM, THIS WOULD BE TO CONTINUE THAT DISCUSSION AND FINALIZE THE PLAN, KATIE COHEN, ENVIRONMENTAL OFFICER, UH, I CAN SPEAK TO THE DRINK SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEES.

THIS IS A JOINT COMMITTEE, WHICH MEANS IT'S MADE UP OF MEMBERS OF DIFFERENT BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS THAT REPRESENT KIND OF THE INTERESTS AROUND SUSTAINABILITY FOR THE CITY.

SO FOLKS WHO THINK MORE ABOUT ENERGY OR WASTE OR PARKS OR PLANNING, UH, AND THE, THE MAIN FOCUS OF THAT IS TO, UM, ADVISE AND OVERSEE THE IMPLEMENTATION AND CREATION OF THE CLIMATE ACTION PLAN.

SO OUR MOST RECENTLY ADOPTED CLIMATE ACTION PLAN, UH, IS ACTUALLY CALLED THE CITY OF AUSTIN CLIMATE EQUITY PLAN WAS ADOPTED BY COUNCIL AND FALL.

SO WE'RE MOVING QUICKLY INTO IMPLEMENTATION.

UM, AND SO, ESPECIALLY AS, UH, THAT PLAN SPEAKS TO NATURAL RESOURCES, THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION REPRESENTATIVE ON THE JOINT SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE WOULD BE REALLY TASKED WITH, UH, MAKING SURE THAT, THAT WE'RE MOVING ON THOSE GOALS RELATED TO THE INTERSECTION OF ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY AND REDUCING OUR CARBON AND SEQUESTERING MORE CARBON, UH, REDUCING OUR CARBON EMISSIONS AND SEQUESTERING MORE CARBON.

UM, I THINK THAT'S THAT PRETTY MUCH COVERS IT.

YEAH.

I WANTED TO SAY THE, UH, I IMAGINE BOTH OF THESE MEET MONTHLY AND IN THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT BOARD MEETS MONTHLY.

YES.

UH, JOINT SUSTAINABILITY, UH, MEETS MONTHLY ON THE FOURTH, WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU GUYS.

AND THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT IS THE THIRD MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH.

UM, ALL RIGHT, WELL, SORRY.

UM, THE SOUTH CENTRAL, IS THAT DOWN? IS IT HERE OR WHERE, WHERE DO THEY MEET BOTH THOSE BOARDS? LET ME PULL UP THAT, UM, LET'S SEE WHAT THE LAST AGENDA WAS NOT ACTUALLY SURE.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S A, UM, AUSTIN ENERGY HEADQUARTERS WAS THE, WHERE THE MEETING WAS FOR FEBRUARY, WHICH WAS LIKE A NINTH AND MUELLER.

MUELLER.

OKAY.

OH, YOU HAVE A NEW ONE.

OKAY.

UH, AND THEN IT LOOKS LIKE JOINED SUSTAINABILITY MIGHT SWITCH THINGS AROUND SOMETIMES, BUT MARCH WAS CITY HALL.

UH, IT LOOKS LIKE FEBRUARY WAS AUSTIN ENERGY.

UM, HISTORICALLY THEY'VE ALWAYS MET IN CITY HALL, JUST LIKE WE ALWAYS DID.

SO THERE MIGHT BE SOME FLUX OCCURRING.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

AND I SEE COMMISSIONER BIXLER HAS JOINED US.

HEY, HOW ARE YOU? I'M DOING WELL.

HOW ARE YOU ALL GOOD.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? UM, ABOUT SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT ADVISORY BOARD? AND IF NOT, UH, I THINK WE'LL JUST PUT IT OUT THERE.

DOES ANYBODY, UH, FEEL, FEEL, FEEL DRIVEN TO, TO ADVISE THE SOUTH CENTRAL ADVISORY BOARD CHAIR? YES.

THIS IS IT'S A CENTER.

I GAVE IT.

UM, I SENT AN EMAIL TO YOU.

HOPE YOU GOT IT, BUT I WAS INTERESTED IN SERVING, UM, IN THAT CAPACITY, UH, AT THE SCHOOL.

SOUNDS GREAT.

IS ANYONE ELSE INTERESTED? ALL RIGHT.

WELL, I'LL, I'LL MOVE FOR COMMISSIONER AG ERA TO SERVE SECOND.

ALRIGHT.

UM, LET'S GO AHEAD.

AND, OR DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY DISCUSSION ON THAT? ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO AHEAD AND VOTE, UH, UH, RAISE OF HAND OR I, UM, ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORT COMMISSIONER IDRA ON THIS BOARD.

ALRIGHT.

ALRIGHT.

NOW THAT UNANIMOUS.

CONGRATULATIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR SERVING.

UH, SO THE NEXT ITEM IS TO

[2.c. Nominate a new member and an alternate for the Joint Sustainability Committee (5 minutes)]

SEE, TO NOMINATE A NEW MEMBER AND AN ALTERNATE TO THE JOINT

[00:10:01]

SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE.

UM, COMMISSIONER W WELL, PREVIOUS COMMISSIONER OR VICE CHAIR COIN WAS IN THAT ROLE AND THEN, UH, BIGLER.

UM, BUT I BELIEVE COMMISSIONER BARRETT, BIG SLURS, JUGGLING A LOT OF THINGS AND NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO SERVE IN THAT ROLE, UM, FOR THIS NEXT, FOR THIS NEXT BIT.

UM, SO SIMILARLY, DOES ANYONE, UH, EXCITED ABOUT JOINING SUSTAINABILITY FOR SHOWING UP IN PERSON? HEY MAN, I'M ALL ABOUT, UH, SUSTAINABILITY AND JOINT IS EVEN BETTER THAN SINGULAR RIGHTS.

SO THERE YOU GO.

ANY OTHER, UH, ANYBODY ELSE, ELSE EXCITED? ALL RIGHT.

I, I, I MOVED THE COMMISSIONER KORESH.

YOU SERVE ON THE, AS THE PRIMARY.

OKAY.

WE GOT A, WE GOT A MOTION AND A SECOND FOR THE, FOR THE PRIMARY.

YOU, YOU READY FOR THAT? OKAY.

UM, BY SHOW OF HANDS, ARE, ARE I ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF CRUSHY SERVING AS THE PRIMARY ON JOINT SUSTAINABILITY? I'M ABSTAINING.

OKAY.

SO WE GOT EVERYONE EXCEPT FOR GRESHA WHO ABSTAINS.

UH, BUT IT STILL CARRIES.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

AND THEN WE NEED AN ALTERNATE ON THAT.

YES.

THANK YOU.

ANYONE EXCITED ABOUT SUPPORTING HIM? I'M EXCITED.

BRIAN WAS EXCITED.

OKAY.

I'M I MOVE BRIMER SERVICES THE SECOND ON THAT SECOND, THE SECOND OF BRIMER.

OKAY.

SO WE'VE GOT A MOTION FOR BRIMER TO SERVE AS THE SECONDARY, UH, I GUESS, UH, REPRESENTATIVE ON THE JOINT SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE, OR RAISE YOUR HAND.

ALL RIGHT, EVERYBODY.

AND BRIMER ARE YOU AGAINST IT OR ARE YOU OPPOSING I'M ABSTAINING, ABSTAINING, I MEAN, SORRY.

YEAH.

OPPOSING OR ABSTAINING.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, IT'S STILL CARRIES.

UM, THANK YOU GUYS.

UH, REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

AND THEN, UH, LAST ON THIS GENERAL

[2.d. Discuss committee membership (5 minutes)]

ITEM TO D TO DISCUSS COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP, WE WANT TO OKAY.

THAT IF YOU DON'T MIND TALK TO THOSE, TALK TO US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE COMMITTEES SURE THING.

SO RIGHT NOW, IF YOU LOOK AT THE END OF YOUR JANUARY 5TH AND END OF AGENDA, UNDER COMMITTEE REPORTS, YOU'LL SEE THE CURRENT MEMBERSHIP FOR EACH COMMITTEE EACH.

UM, SO THE URBAN FORESTRY COMMITTEE IS OUR ONLY STANDING COMMITTEE THAT ISN'T A JOINT COMMITTEE OR A COUNCIL COMMITTEE.

SO I THINK THAT'S THE PRIMARY ONE, UM, THAT WE HAVE THAT WE JUST NEED TO TALK ABOUT.

IF ANYBODY WANTS TO DROP OFF OF THAT OR GET ADDED ON, THERE ARE TWO VACANCIES CURRENTLY ON URBAN FOREST STREET.

AND THEN BASED ON PREVIOUS MEETING CONVERSATION, I ADDED, UH, COMMISSIONER BEDFORD AND COMMISSIONER CRUSHY TO THE JOINT COMMITTEE OF ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION AND PARKS BOARD.

UH, COMMISSIONER SCOTT HAS, WAS ALSO RECENTLY ADDED TO THAT ONE.

SO THAT HAS MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF MEMBERSHIP CURRENTLY, BUT JUST WANTED TO VERIFY THAT EVERYBODY'S STILL HAPPY SERVING IN THOSE ROLES.

AND, UM, IF, IF SO, THEN WE'RE GOOD TO GO ON THE JOINT COMMITTEE WITH PARKERSBURG BOARD.

UM, SO I THINK THE ONLY ONE THAT'S LEFT RIGHT NOW IS JUST TWO VACANCIES ON URBAN FORESTRY.

AND IF WE CAN FILL THE TWO VACANCIES, THAT WOULD BE IDEAL BECAUSE TRYING TO HAVE A COMMITTEE WITH ONLY THREE PEOPLE IS PRETTY DIFFICULT TO GET QUORUM AND TO HAVE A ROBUST DISCUSSION AND CONVERSATION IF YOU'RE MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE FULL COMMISSION.

SO I WOULD RECOMMEND TRYING TO FILL THAT COMMITTEE OUT IF WE'RE GOING TO KEEP IT AS A STANDING COMMITTEE.

UM, THOSE COMMITTEES ARE ALSO, UH, REQUIRED TO MEET QUARTERLY JUST ONCE A QUARTER.

UH, RIGHT NOW WE'RE NOT MEETING THAT REQUIREMENT.

SO, UH, WE, WE WILL NEED TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION AS WELL.

IF THIS, IF YOU FEEL THAT THIS IS JUST, UM, THE REPORTS THAT ARE BEING HEARD BY THE URBAN FORESTRY COMMITTEE OR SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT THE FULL BOARD TO HEAR, THEN WE CAN ALWAYS PLAN TO GET RID OF THAT COMMITTEE AND JUST HAVE, UH, KEITH MARS AND URBAN FOREST STREET FOLKS COME OUT AND GET THOSE REPORTS AT YOUR FULL MEETINGS.

SO THAT'S SOMETHING TO CONSIDER AS WELL.

IF COMMITTEE, YOU KNOW, DAYTIME COMMITTEE MEETINGS ARE JUST NOT FEASIBLE FOR MAJORITY OF THE COMMISSION RIGHT NOW.

PERFECT.

AND JUST LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

ALL RIGHT.

SO FOR THE URBAN FORESTRY COMMITTEE, UM, DOES ANYONE ELSE WANT TO JOIN THAT COMMITTEE ROUNDED OUT A BIT? I WON'T LOOK TO THE PEOPLE INSIDE OF HERE.

I'LL JUST PICK ON THE SCREEN NOW GOING ONCE GOING TWICE.

ALL RIGHT.

WE'LL STICK THAT ONE, UH, JOINT SUSTAINABILITY.

WE JUST TALKED ABOUT, UM, FOR, UH, THE BALCONIES CANYON LANDS, UH, CONSERVATION PLANS, CITIZEN ADVISORY COMMITTEE.

[00:15:01]

I THINK I'M GONNA STEP BACK FROM THAT.

AND, UH, DO WE NEED TO HAVE A MOTION TO PUT BRISTOL ON THAT? OR IS THAT JUST ADMINISTRATIVE? AND JUST TO CLARIFY TOO, DO WE NEED TO HAVE TWO PEOPLE ON THAT OR DOES IT NEED TO BE ONE? UH, CODY IS JUST ONE, BUT I'M WONDERING, I'M CHECKING TO SEE THAT MAY BE A COUNCIL APPOINTED.

ALSO.

I NEED TO DOUBLE CHECK THAT REAL QUICK IF YOU JUST GIVE ME A MOMENT.

OKAY.

WE'LL COME BACK TO THAT ONE.

AND THEN A DRUNK COMMITTEE ON ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSIONS TIED UP AND SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFRONT WE'VE ALREADY ADDRESSED.

SO, UM, WE'LL JUST SIT TIGHT FOR A SECOND.

SO, UH, COMMISSIONER MEYER, WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN, UM, BEING ON THE BELCO NEWS CANYON LANDS? UH, B IT'S GOOD TO BE ON AT LEAST ONE COMMITTEE FOR, UM, HER NICOLE'S COMMISSIONER RECOMMENDS YOU EXCITED ABOUT GETTING ON A COMMITTEE NOW? NO PRESSURE.

ALL RIGHT.

WELL, I GUESS IF I WERE TO PICK ONE, I'D PROBABLY SAY URBAN FORESTRY WOULD BE THE ONE TO BE ON.

CAUSE THAT'S THE ONE WE WERE TRYING TO ROUND OUT A LITTLE BIT MORE REGULAR.

YES, THAT'S CORRECT.

I'M SORRY, GO AHEAD, COMMISSIONER, GO AHEAD.

NICKELS.

I'M JUST GOING TO SAY IF THAT'S WHAT HELPS, YOU KNOW, KIND OF ROUND OUT THE COMMITTEE TO HELP ME OR MORE EASILY THAN SURE.

ABSOLUTELY HAPPY TO HELP.

ALRIGHT, THANK YOU.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND NOMINATE IF WE NEED TO REPLACE, GET A NEW MEMBER FOR THEIR BUCK.

COURTNEY'S KENYA LAND CONSERVATION PLAN COORDINATING COMMITTEE.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO THAT.

AND WE'LL JUST CONSIDER THAT THE FORMAL PROCESS IS DONE IF WE NEED, IF NECESSARY.

THANK YOU.

SO FOR A AGENDA ITEM, ONE, TWO D UM, I'D LIKE TO NOMINATE COMMITTED, UH, SECRETARY OF BRISTOL TO, UH, SERVE ON ABOUT COUNTY'S CANYON LAND CONSERVATION PLAN CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE INSTEAD OF ME.

SO WE'VE GOT A SECOND FROM THANK YOU.

UM, GOT A MOTION AND A SECOND, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE, OR RAISE YOUR HAND REMOTELY.

PERFECT.

IT LOOKS TO BE UNANIMOUS.

IS THAT EVERYTHING WE NEED TO ADDRESS ON THIS? OKAY.

THANK YOU GUYS.

YES.

AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYBODY, WHETHER YOU UNDERSTOOD WHAT YOU JUST SIGNED UP FOR OR NOT APPRECIATE IT.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

MOVING ON TO

[3.a. Name: 7715 1/2 West State Highway 71 Restrictive Covenant Amendment, C14-85-288.23(RCA) Applicant: Amanda Swor, Drenner Group Location: 7715 ½ W. SH 71 Council District: District 8 Staff: Liz Johnston, Deputy Environmental Officer, Watershed Protection Department Watershed: Williamson Creek, Barton Springs Zone Contributing Zone, Drinking Water Protection Zone Request: To amend a restrictive covenant Staff Recommendation: Staff recommended with conditions (30 minutes)]

AGENDA ITEM THREE, A UM, WHEN IN THE PUBLIC HEARING SECTION OF THE MEETING, UH, 4 7, 7 1 5 AND A HALF WEST STATE HIGHWAY 71, RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AMENDMENT C ONE FOUR DASH EIGHT FIVE DASH 2 8 8 0.23, WHICH IS AN RCA.

UM, YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE POINTLESS.

YES.

I'M LIZ JOHNSTON, THE DEPUTY ENVIRONMENTAL OFFICER WITH WATERSHED PROTECTION AND I'M WAITING ON THE, UH, PRESENTATION.

AND THEN I'LL BEGIN SHORTLY AFTER MY PRESENTATION.

THE APPLICANT IS HERE AS WELL.

SO I W MAYBE HOLD QUESTIONS UNTIL THEY'RE ABLE TO COMPLETE THEIR, UM, PRESENTATION, BECAUSE I THINK THAT, UM, THEY'LL HAVE A LOT OF INFORMATION TO PROVIDE.

AND WE ALSO HAVE A WINDY ROADS FROM HOUSING AND PLANNING WHO CAN ALSO ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE PROCESS AND ZONING PERSPECTIVE IF NECESSARY.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, 77, 15 AND A HALF WEST S H 71.

THIS IS A RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AMENDMENT.

UM, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, THESE ARE, THIS IS A PROCESS THAT DOESN'T COME UP VERY REGULARLY.

SO I WANTED TO SPEND A LITTLE BIT OF TIME EXPLAINING WHAT, UH, WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT HERE TODAY.

SO RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS ARE LEGAL DOCUMENTS THAT, UH, HAVE CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS ON PROPERTIES.

THEY CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

THE CITY CAN BE A PART OF THE PARTY TO THEM OR THAT MAY, BUT THEY DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE.

UM, THE, IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, THERE WERE A SET OF RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS THAT AFFECTED PROPERTIES IN WHAT WAS CALLED THE OAK HILL STUDY AREA.

UM, BACK IN 1985, WHEN ENVIRONMENTAL RULES WERE, UH, QUITE DIFFERENT THAN THEY ARE TODAY.

UM, AND IN ADDITION TO, UM, SETTING LAND DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS, THE RESTRICTED COVENANTS

[00:20:01]

ALSO HAD ZONING PROVISIONS.

AND, UM, THIS PARTICULAR LOT HA IS, UH, HAS A DEVELOPER INTERESTED IN, UM, WITH THE FOUR PROJECT THAT MS SWORE AND HER TEAM WILL EXPLAIN MORE ABOUT.

UM, BUT IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT, THEY HAD TO REQUEST CHANGES TO THE ZONING AND, UM, WHICH MEANT THAT THIS RESTRICTED COVENANT NEEDED TO BE AMENDED.

UM, WHEN THIS HAPPENS, UM, IT'S BEEN OUR PAST PRACTICE TO, UM, BECAUSE THE ZONING WOULD AFFECT THE DENSITY AND HOW, UM, HIGH, UH, HOW, UH, DENSELY THE PROJECT WILL BE DEVELOPED.

WE ARE HERE ALSO ASKING FOR BETTER ENVIRONMENTAL OUTCOMES THAN WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY REQUIRED UNDER THE PREVIOUS REGULATIONS, WHICH, UM, THEY HAVE A VESTED RIGHT TO, TO, UM, DEVELOP UNDER NEXT SLIDE.

SO I, UH, ONE, YEAH.

UM, SO IF THIS WERE TO COME IN UNDER CURRENT CODE, WITHOUT THIS RESTRICTIVE COVENANT IT'S WOULD FALL UNDER THE SAVE OUR SPRINGS ORDINANCE.

UM, SO THIS IS IN THAT PART OF TOWN WHERE, UM, THAT EITHER CONTRIBUTES TO, OR IS DIRECTLY RECHARGE, UM, UH, FOR BARTON SPRINGS.

UM, AND THE CURRENT IMPERVIOUS COVER WOULD BE 25% OF THE NET SITE AREA.

SO THE NET SITE AREA IS THE AREA THAT'S DEVELOPABLE, UM, AND THERE WOULD BE NONDEGRADATION WATER QUALITY REQUIRED.

AND THEN WE HAVE PROTECTIONS FOR SLOPES LIMITS ON CUT AND FILL CREEK, UH, BUFFER PROTECTIONS AS WELL.

AND, UM, NEXT SLIDE, UNDER THE TERMS OF THE EXISTING RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, THEY WOULD BE, UM, UNDER THE 1981 REGULATIONS, THE RIVERS LAKES AND WATERCOURSES ORDINANCE, WHICH HAS SOME PROTECTION FOR NATURAL AND TRADITIONAL CHARACTER OF WATERWAYS, BUT THAT, THERE'S NOTHING SPECIFIC TO THAT.

UM, OF COURSE, FLOODING, I KNOW HAD ADVERSE FLOODING IMPACTS AS WE DO TODAY.

UM, THE ZONING IMPERVIOUS COVER, UM, UH, APPLIED.

SO UNDER THAT, UH, RESTRICTED COVENANT, IT WOULD BE 65% AND THERE WOULD BE NO WATER QUALITY OR ANY OF THE OTHER PROTECTIONS, UM, FROM CURRENT CODE, NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS THE LOCATION.

SO THE BLUE AREA CUTTING THROUGH AUSTIN AS THE EDWARDS AQUIFER RECHARGE ZONE, UM, THE GREEN AREA WHERE THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED IS THE, UH, CONTRIBUTING ZONES.

SO IT'S NOT DIRECTLY OVER THE AQUIFER, BUT IT IS IN THE BARTON SPRINGS ZONE BECAUSE STORMWATER GOES INTO CREEKS THAT DO FLOW THROUGH THE EDWARDS AQUIFER, AND THIS CONTRIBUTES RECHARGE TO BARTON SPRINGS, SO SENSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL AREA.

NEXT SLIDE.

UM, THIS IS A KIND OF A SHOWING WHAT THE, WHAT A LITTLE BIT MORE OF A SITE CONTEXT IT'S IN WILLIAMSON CREEK WATERSHED.

THERE IS A CREEK NEARBY THAT HAS A CRITICAL WATER QUALITY ZONE TO PROTECT THE, THE, UM, DIRECTLY ALONG THE CREEK CORRIDOR.

AND THEN THERE'S THE WATER QUALITY TRANSITIONS ZONE, WHICH IS A SECONDARY BUFFER, UH, WHERE DEVELOPMENT IS LIMITED.

UM, THIS PROPERTY DOES HAVE A TINY BIT OF CRITICAL WATER QUALITY ZONE THAT REALLY WON'T BE AFFECTED BY THE DEVELOPMENT, BUT THERE IS A WATER QUALITY TRANSITION ZONE THAT, UM, UM, IS ON THE PROPERTY AND IT IS FULL PURPOSE, ZONING JURISDICTION.

NEXT SLIDE.

UM, HERE'S THE TOPOGRAPHY MAP SHOWING WHERE THE TRANSITION ZONE IS.

SO SITE ACCESS WOULD HAVE TO OCCUR THROUGH THE WATER QUALITY TRANSITION ZONE.

THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO GET ONTO THE PROPERTY WITHOUT THAT.

AND THERE ARE SLOPES GREATER THAN 15% THROUGHOUT THE SITE.

UM, THERE ARE, UH, W THAT'S ALSO WOODED, UM, NEXT SLIDE.

AND, UH, I'M GOING TO DEFER DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THE PROP, THE PROJECT IS TO THE APPLICANT, BUT, UM, OUR RECOMMENDATION IS, UM, FOR, TO RE UH, RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AMENDMENT WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS.

UM, SO ONE OF THE CONDITIONS IS THAT AFTER THIS DEVELOPMENT IS DONE, THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT WOULD BE TERMINATED AND IT WOULD BE COMPLETED.

AND SO ANY FUTURE DEVELOPMENT WOULD FALL UNDER CURRENT REGULATIONS.

UM, AND THEN THIS PROJECT WILL COMPLY WITH CURRENT CLIP, CURRENT CODE, INCLUDING SOS NONDEGRADATION WATER QUALITY TREATMENT.

SO ALL OF THE POLLUTANTS OFF OF THE SITE WOULD HAVE TO MEET CURRENT REGULATIONS FOR TREATING THE POLLUTANTS BEFORE BEING DISCHARGED.

UM, AND THEN EXCEPT FOR THE FOLLOWING, UM, THE APPLICANT IS, UM, AGREED TO REDUCE THE IMPERVIOUS COVER TO 50% OF THE GROSS SIDE AREA CALCULATION RATHER THAN 65%.

SO THAT'S A REDUCTION OF 15% IMPERVIOUS COVER.

UM, THEY'RE

[00:25:01]

LIMITING CUT AND FILL TO EIGHT FEET.

UM, CURRENT CODE IS FOUR FEET.

THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT IS UNLIMITED.

UM, SO THEY'RE LIMITING IT TO EIGHT FEET EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN SITUATIONS LIKE BUILDING FOUNDATIONS, WHICH, UM, DON'T HAVE CUTTING FILL LIMITS ANYWAY, AND THEN STORM WATER CONTROL MEASURES.

SO IF THEY NEED TO DIG A POND DEEPER THAN THAT, UM, THEY WOULD GO DEEPER THAN EIGHT FEET AND THE STORMWATER, THE STORMWATER CONTROL FACILITIES, UM, WHICH ARE GOING TO BE RETENTION RATE IRRIGATION FIELDS MORE OR LESS WOULD BE IN THE WATER QUALITY TRANSITION ZONE, WHICH IS AGAIN, IT'S A ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE CREEK.

SO IT'S NOT DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THE, UH, THE CREEK.

AND THEN I W APPLICANT WANTED TO CLARIFY THAT CONSTRUCTION ON SLOPES DO NOT APPLY.

AND WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO THE APPLICANT.

HI, GOOD EVENING.

MY NAME'S AMANDA SWORE WITH DRAENOR GROUP.

I DO HAVE A PRESENTATION THAT HAS A BLACK BACKGROUND, SO EXCITING TO SEE ALL IN PERSON, MY FIRST TIME TO BE HERE.

UM, I CAN START TALKING A LITTLE BIT WHILE WE'RE WAITING FOR THE PRESENTATION TO COME UP.

SO, UM, AS LIZ MENTIONED, THIS IS A RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, AND THEN IN CASE WHICH Y'ALL, DON'T SEE VERY OFTEN, YOU PROBABLY ALSO DON'T SEE A LOT OF POSTPONEMENTS ON YOUR AGENDA.

SO, UM, WE DO REALLY APPRECIATE, Y'ALL LETTING US TAKE THE TIME.

UM, WE, WE WERE READY AND HAD AN AGREEMENT MADE WITH STAFF.

WE HAVE SPENT THE LAST THREE MONTHS WORKING WITH THE ADJACENT PROPERTY OWNERS AND WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, UM, AND WE DID RECEIVE A LETTER OF SUPPORT, UM, AND THERE WAS A VALID PETITION AGAINST THE PROPERTY THAT HAS BEEN REMOVED.

SO WE ARE, UM, WE ARE GRATEFUL THAT Y'ALL ALLOWED US THAT TIME.

AND WE THINK THAT THIS IS, UM, IT REALLY HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE CHANGE IN THE PROJECT IF I COULD GET THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, SO AS LIZ MENTIONED, WE ARE HERE FOR THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AMENDMENT.

UH, BUT I DO NEED TO POINT OUT THAT THERE IS ALSO A ZONING CASE, UM, AND A NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN AMENDMENT THAT ARE IN REVIEW.

THEY DO NOT COME TO THIS BODY BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE AN ENVIRONMENTAL COMPONENT TO THEM.

BUT WHEN I TALK ABOUT THE BIGGER PROJECT, YOU'LL SEE THAT THERE'S ACTUALLY TWO LOTS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DEVELOPING.

UM, SO I WANTED TO MAKE SURE TO POINT OUT THAT THERE WERE A COUPLE OF OTHER CASES GOING ON.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE OUTLINE SHOWS THE TWO TRACKS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IT.

TO ME, IT LOOKS LIKE A MOVIE TICKET.

SO, UM, TRACT ONE IS A TRACT THAT DOES NOT, DOES NOT HAVE THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT ON IT.

SO TRACK ONE IS SUBJECT TO CURRENT CODE, CURRENT RULES, NO VARIANCES, NO MODIFICATIONS.

IT IS, IT HAS TO MEET ALL OF THE RULES.

TRACK TWO IS THE TRACK THAT HAS THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT ON IT, THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE MODIFICATIONS TO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, THIS WAS FOR WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD, NOT REALLY IMPORTANT HERE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AMENDMENT TRACK IS 13 ACRES.

AND WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE LARGER PROPERTY, IT'S JUST OVER 22 ACRES.

SO JUST FROM A SIZE AND CONTEXT PERSPECTIVE, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, SO THIS IS THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT THAT, UM, THAT LIZ WAS TALKING ABOUT.

IT IS FROM 1985.

THIS COVENANT ACTUALLY COVERS TWO PIECES OF PROPERTY.

WHAT WE CALL TRACK TWO ON OUR LOT, AND THEN ANOTHER PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF IS NOT PART OF THIS PROPERTY.

OUR AMENDMENT DOES NOT IMPACT THE OTHER PROPERTY.

IT IS ONLY FOR TRACK TWO THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ONLY FOR THIS PIECE OF PROPERTY.

IT STILL STAYS IN EFFECT FOR THE OTHER PROPERTY THAT IS BEING DEVELOPED.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AS A STAFF MENTIONED, WE ARE SUBJECT TO THE ITEMS THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY IN THIS COVENANT AS IT, UM, AS IT WAS STATED, IT CALLS FOR A MAXIMUM IMPERVIOUS COVER OF 65%.

UM, AND THEN A MAXIMUM BUILDING SQUARE FOOTAGE OF 146,000, AND THEN IT GRANDFATHERS IT TO ALL OF THE REGULATIONS THAT WERE IN PLACE IN, UM, 1981 CODE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I'M A VISUAL PERSON.

SO THIS IS, THIS IS THE SLIDE THAT, THAT MAKES IT ALL WORK IN MY HEAD.

SO WITH THE AMENDMENT, WE ARE PROPOSING TO, THE ONLY INCREASE THAT WE ARE ASKING FOR IS FOR THE FLORIDA AREA RATIO.

SO IT'S TO TAKE THE, WHAT YOU ENDED UP WITH THESE RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS WAS REALLY SMALL FLORIDA AREA RATIOS OR BUILDING AREA, AND REALLY LARGE IMPERVIOUS COVERS COVERAGES.

SO YOU HA YOU HAVE WHAT WAS GOING TO END UP BEING, YOU KNOW, SMALL OFFICE BUILDINGS WITH SURFACE PARKED SEAS.

AND SO WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR IS TO REMOVE THE FLORIDA AREA RATIO LIMITATION, OR THE SQUARE FOOTAGE LIMITATION, AND JUST BRING THAT TO BE CONSISTENT WITH EXISTING CODE.

SO WE'RE NOT ASKING FOR MORE BUILDING AREA THAN WE WOULD BE ABLE TO ELAP HAVE UNDER THE ZONING DESIGNATION FROM A WATER

[00:30:01]

QUALITY PERSPECTIVE.

THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT TODAY, UM, WOULD ALLOW US TO JUST CAPTURE THE FIRST HALF INCH OF RUNOFF.

OUR, UM, ENGINEERING TEAM WORKED TIRELESSLY TO GET US TO A POINT AND REALLY CREDIT TO STAFF.

WE, WE WEREN'T THERE WHEN WE CAME IN, WE WERE ASKING FOR SOME MODIFICATIONS, BUT, UM, AFTER A LOT OF WORKING, WE ARE MEETING FULL SOS, UM, ON OUR, ON THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT PROPERTY AND ON THE PROPERTY THAT SUBJECT TO CURRENT CODE.

SO ACROSS THE BOARD, UM, EVEN THOUGH THE SITE DOESN'T HAVE TO TODAY, IT'S MEANINGFUL SOS, UM, DRAINAGE IS A LIFE SAFETY ISSUE.

SO IT'S CURRENT CODE, NO MATTER WHAT IT IS NOT GRANDFATHERED, UM, IMPERVIOUS COVER, WE HAVE 65% BUY, RIGHT? WE INITIALLY CAME IN AND ASKED TO REDUCE THAT TO 60%.

UM, THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHANGES THAT HAPPENED WITH OUR NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, WE, WE REDUCED THAT DOWN TO 50%.

SO, UM, WE ARE, WE WOULD HAVE A MAXIMUM IMPERVIOUS COVER OF 50% ON LOT TWO, AND TO GET THAT LOT, ONE IS SUBJECT TO CURRENT CODE, UM, EROSION, UM, USUALLY HAZARD ZONES NOT REGULATED UNDER THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

WE WOULD MEET CURRENT CODE AGAIN.

UM, STAFF TOUCHED ON CUT FILL.

WE WOULD, UM, CAP THAT AT EIGHT FEET, UH, MAXIMUM ON THE SITE.

THE CONSTRUCTION ON SLOPES, UM, WOULD MATCH THE REDUCTION IN IMPERVIOUS COVER TO 50%.

UM, TREES.

THE TREE REGULATIONS FROM THE 1981 CODE DID NOT HAVE A HERITAGE TREE REQUIREMENT.

IT ONLY HAD PROTECTED TREES.

WE ARE MEETING CURRENT CODE, FULL, FULL CODE, AND, UM, IN FULL HERITAGE TREE ORDINANCE.

AND THEN AGAIN, THE EROSION CONTROLS ARE COMING UP TO CURRENT CODE VERSUS THE 1981 MEASURES.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

I MENTIONED IT, BUT I WANT TO MENTION IT AGAIN.

WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

I'M VERY PLEASED THAT WE WERE ABLE TO REMOVE THAT RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

THIS IS THE LETTER THAT WAS SUBMITTED AS PART OF YOUR BACKUP.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND AS I MENTIONED, REALLY THE BIGGEST THING THAT THINGS THAT CHANGED WERE THE, UM, REDUCTION IN IMPERVIOUS COVER.

WE HAD COME IN AT 60% AND DROPPED THAT TO 50%.

UM, ONE OF THE BUILDINGS I'M GOING TO WALK THROUGH THE PROJECT WITH YOU.

WE, UM, CONVERTED FROM A MULTI-FAMILY BUILDING TO A TOWNHOUSE BUILDING, WHICH RESULTED IN A LOT OF THE REDUCTION OF THAT IMPERVIOUS COVER.

AND WE ALSO HAVE A VERY LARGE PUBLIC PARK.

THAT'S GOING TO BE ON THE PROPERTY AND THAT INCREASED BY, UM, BY 0.7 ACRES.

SO EIGHT NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO I KNOW THAT, UM, THIS IS ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSIONER.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO FOCUS ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL PIECES, WHICH I DID, BUT EVERYONE ALSO WANTS TO SEE WHAT, WHAT IS HAPPENING.

WHAT IS, WHAT DOES THIS REALLY LOOK LIKE? SO IF I WERE TO DESCRIBE THIS FROM RIGHT TO LEFT, HOW, UH, NORTH TO SOUTH, THE PLANS ALL GET MIXED AROUND.

SO I'M GOING TO CALL IT RIGHT TO LEFT.

IS WE GO THROUGH THIS, WE ARE PROPOSING A RESIDENTIAL PROJECT.

WHAT YOU SEE IN THE TOP RIGHT OF THIS IS WHAT WE CALL TRACT.

ONE THAT IS THE PIECE THAT IS FULLY SUBJECT TO CURRENT REGULATIONS.

AND THEN THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN IS THAT TRACK TWO THAT IS SUBJECT TO THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

WHAT YOU NOTICE UP ALONG 71 IS THERE IS A LIGHT GREEN AREA THAT IS RIGHT AWAY, THAT WILL BE DEDICATED.

UM, AS PART OF TECH STOCKS, ROADWAY IMPROVEMENTS, THERE, THEY HAVE ALREADY IDENTIFIED WHAT THAT IS.

WE WILL DEDICATE ALL OF THAT RIGHT AWAY IS PART OF THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, THE AREA THAT IS DARKER GREEN, KIND OF THE BORDERS, THE PROPERTY IS AREA THAT WILL BE DEDICATED TO THE CITY AS IS PARKLAND.

SO WE WORKED WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT, UM, VERY EARLY IN THE PROCESS AND SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME WITH THEM.

AND THEY REALLY WANTED TO SEE, UM, THIS IS A REALLY DEFICIENT, UH, PART OF THE CITY FROM A PARKLAND PERSPECTIVE.

AND THERE WAS A REAL DESIRE TO CONNECT TO A PARK THAT'S JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THIS OR TO THE LEFT ON THE SCREEN AND CREATE SOME CONNECTIVITY TO FUTURE MULTIMODAL OPPORTUNITIES ALONG 71.

AND SO WE WANTED TO CREATE BOTH A BUFFER ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE LEFT SIDE, AND THEN ALSO WHERE YOU SEE THE BIG PARKLAND AREA ON THE RIGHT OR THE NORTH SIDE OF THE SCREEN IS WHERE THERE ARE VERY LARGE GROVES OF HERITAGE TREES.

AND SO WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE TO, UM, PROTECT THOSE AND PRESERVE THOSE, TO MAKE THEM BOTH AN AMENITY TO THIS SITE AND AMENITY TO THE, UM, TO THE CITY.

ONE QUESTION WE HAVE GOTTEN A LOT IS THAT THERE CAN BE SOME PROBLEMS WITH PARKLAND.

UM, THIS WILL BE PUBLIC PARKLAND, BUT IT WILL BE PRIVATELY MAINTAINED PARKLAND.

SO WE WILL, UM, WE WILL BE IN CONTROL OF THAT AREA.

THERE WILL ALSO BE, UM, ALMOST A THREE-QUARTER OF A MILE TRAIL THAT GOES AROUND THE PROPERTY.

THE OTHER PIECE I WANTED TO POINT OUT THAT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE NEIGHBORHOODS WAS ACCESS TO THE SITE.

AND IT'S A PIECE THAT STAFF MENTIONED.

SO ALL VEHICULAR ACCESS TO THE SITE WILL COME OFF OF 71.

UM, THERE IS A CONNECTION BACK TO THE ROAD, UM, THAT IS BEING CONSTRUCTED TO THE LEFT OR TO THE SOUTH OF THIS SITE.

UM, THE ROAD KIND OF TARGETING OF A POINTER, THE TOP WHERE IT, WHERE IT CURVES, THERE WILL BE A FIRE ONLY ACCESS POINT THERE, SO EMERGENCY ACCESS, BUT IT WILL BE FULLY CONTROLLED.

THERE WAS,

[00:35:01]

UM, A LOT OF CONCERN AND UNDERSTANDABLY, SO THERE'S A PROJECT THAT'S UNDER CONSTRUCTION NOW TO THE SOUTH OF OUR SITE THAT HAS ACCESS TO THOSE NEIGHBORHOOD ROADS FOR CONSTRUCTION.

AND IT HAS CAUSED A LOT OF, UM, PROBLEMS FOR, FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD.

AND SO WE, WE HAVE MADE THAT COMMITMENT THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE REQUIRED TO HAVE AN ACCESS POINT, BUT ALL OF OUR VEHICULAR ACCESS, INCLUDING OUR CONSTRUCTION ACCESS WILL COME OFF OF 71.

THERE WILL BE THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN CONNECTION SO THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD CAN COME THROUGH AND USE THE PARK AREA AND GET FURTHER NORTH.

UM, THE PROJECT DID ALSO, UM, WITH CONVERSATIONS, THE NEIGHBORS MADE QUITE A BIT OF CHANGES.

SO THE BUILDING ON THE NORTH IS A MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL PROJECT, BUT WHAT YOU'LL NOTICE IS THE PARKING IS STRUCTURALLY PARKED.

SO WE, IT FIRST, IT WASN'T, IT WAS A SURFACE PARKED PROJECT AND WE MADE SURE TO, UM, PARK AS MUCH OF THE PROJECT AS WE COULD IN A GARAGE, WHICH, UM, LET US REDUCE IMPERVIOUS COVER.

WE ALSO WERE REALLY COGNIZANT THAT THERE IS SOME RESIDENTIAL BEING CONSTRUCTED TO THE SOUTH OF THIS.

SO WE CREATED A, UM, THE THREE UNITS ON THE LEFT THAT YOU'LL SEE, THOSE ARE TOWNHOUSES HOUSES.

THOSE ARE WHAT WE ORIGINALLY PROPOSED TO CREATE THAT TRANSITION FROM SINGLE FAMILY TO TOWN, LIKE TO PARKLAND, TO TOWNHOUSE, TO THE MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL AS PART OF OUR DISCUSSION, UM, WITH THE NEIGHBOR, THE SECOND THREE TOWN HOUSE BUILDINGS THAT YOU SEE WERE, UM, ADDED IN.

SO THOSE WERE ORIGINALLY A MULTI-FAMILY STRUCTURE AND THOSE WERE TRANSITIONED OVER TO BE A TOWNHOUSE TO CREATE THAT ADDITIONAL BUFFER.

I THINK I'VE TALKED A LOT, UM, BUT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE TO KIND OF OUTLINE WHAT THIS LOOKED LIKE AND HOPEFULLY ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, BUT I AM REALLY PROUD OF THIS PROJECT.

WE'VE WORKED REALLY HARD WITH STAFF AND WITH THE NEIGHBORS.

AND I THINK THAT THIS REALLY DOES PROVIDE A BETTER ENVIRONMENTAL OUTCOME FROM WHAT COULD BE BUILT TODAY.

AND I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

I DO HAVE OUR, UM, DEVELOPER AND ENGINEER HERE.

CAUSE THERE'S YOU PROBABLY ASK QUESTIONS.

I CAN'T ANSWER.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S MAYBE, UH, GO, GO AROUND THE HORN HERE AND SEE IF ANYBODY HAS QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT OR FOR STAFF, UH, ALL OR WE DO HAVE SPEAKERS.

WHO DO WE HAVE? UM, WE HAVE, UH, ROY WHALEY, UH, UH, CALLING ON THE PHONE AS A SPEAKER.

UM, WE HAVEN'T HAD ROY CALLED IN YET.

OKAY.

OKAY.

WELL, I GUESS WE GET WORD OF ROY CALLING ON, PLEASE LOCK ME DOWN, KAYLA.

UM, WITH THAT, MAYBE LET'S GO AROUND THE HORN HERE AND SEE IF ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS, UH, COMMISSIONER QURESHI, UH, NO QUESTIONS.

ALTHOUGH I DID GROW UP IN THE AREA JUST WEST OF HERE ON TWO 90 AROUND BELTERRA SO, UH, IT'S INTERESTING TO SEE MORE DEVELOPMENT.

I CAN TOTALLY SEE HOW THE NEIGHBORHOOD PUSH BACK ON, UM, YOU KNOW, HAVING MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL, BUT, UH, YOU KNOW, WE NEED MORE THINGS TO DO AROUND THERE.

SO TREES GOTTA GET CUT DOWN.

HOPEFULLY Y'ALL ARE RESPONSIBLE WITH IT.

YOU KNOW, COMMISSIONER SCOTT, I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR AN EXCELLENT PRESENTATION.

AND I'M ALSO IMPRESSED BY THE, A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF SUPPORT THAT YOU HAVE, UH, AND THE, UH, GOOD COMMUNICATIONS THAT YOU HAVE WITH THE COMMUNITY.

UH, IT'S CLEAR THAT YOU HAVE, UH, UH, UH, NEEDED SIR, UH, SERVICE.

AND, UH, I THINK THAT YOUR, YOUR PLANNING HAS, UH, BEEN, UH, REALLY WELL THOUGHT OUT.

I'M, I'M CURIOUS, UH, UH, IN, IN THE, AND IN MY LIFE OVER TIME, I'VE NOTICED THAT FIREMEN WASH THEIR TRUCKS A LOT AND WHEN THEY'RE NOT OUT FIGHTING FIRES, THEY WASH THE TRUCKS.

AND WE'RE JUST WONDERING IF YOU HAVE, UH, SOME METHOD OF CAPTURING THAT WATER, BECAUSE WE DO HAVE SO MANY DROUGHTS AND JUST KEEPING THE TREES ALIVE WOULD BE NICE, MR. SCOTT, IF YOU'LL HOLD THAT QUESTION, WHICH IS AWESOME.

UM, I THINK THAT GOES TO THE NEXT ONE.

OKAY.

NOT THIS.

THANK YOU.

BUT, UH, NO OTHER QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

MAYBE WE'LL GO, GO ONLINE TO, UH, TO THE REMOTE COMMISSIONERS, COMMISSIONER NICHOLS, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF OR APPLICANT AND JUST ONE OF THE THIRD KILLER JOURNALS FOR THE EXCELLENT PRESENTATION AND ALSO JUST COMMEND THEM ON PROVIDING MUCH, MUCH NEEDED HOUSING WHILE STILL BEING COMPLIANT WITH CITY CODES RELATE TO ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS.

OTHER MATTERS, NO QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

UH, COMMISSIONER BARRETT.

UH, I SECOND THAT

[00:40:01]

I SAY WHAT HE SAID.

IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO FALL INTO CLOSE.

GOOD JOB.

UH, COMMISSIONER BRIMER DO YOU HAVE ANY, YEAH, YES.

THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

I APPRECIATE IT THERE.

I DO HAVE ONE QUESTION.

THE, UH, FOR THE APPLICANT, UH, YOU INDICATED THAT THE, UH, PARKLAND IS GOING TO BE PRIVATELY MAINTAINED AS SOON THERE'S GOING TO BE A, A CONTRACT OR SOMETHING THAT WILL PROVIDE FOR THE MAINTENANCE IN PERPETUITY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

IS THAT CORRECT? YES, SIR.

THAT'S ACCURATE.

THERE WILL BE A, SO WHEN THE PARKLAND IS DEDICATED, THERE WILL BE A MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT THAT'S EXECUTED WITH THE CITY AND THAT WILL PROVIDE, UM, CONTACT INFORMATION THAT HAS TO BE UPDATED.

OKAY.

THANKS FOR MUCH APPRECIATE COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

OKAY.

SO JUST TO BE CLEAR, THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS, UM, AGREED TO THIS AND ALL OF THE LETTERS THAT WE GOT IN DOC, UM, IN THE BACKUP HAVE SAID THAT THEY NOW ARE IN FAVOR OF IT AS A COMMUNITY.

IS THAT CORRECT? I CANNOT SAY THAT ACROSS THE BOARD.

UM, I CAN SAY THAT WE WORKED, UM, WITH ONE OF THE REPRESENTATIVES THAT WAS THE ADJACENT PROPERTY OWNER THAT HAD CREATED A LOT OF THE ORGANIZATION, UM, AND THAT HE WAS ABLE, HE, THOSE WERE THE INTERESTS THAT WE RECEIVED.

UM, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THERE, THERE WAS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN HIM AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENTATIVES, AND THOSE ARE THE, UM, CONCERNS THAT WE HEARD AND WERE ABLE TO INCORPORATE.

WE DID HOST A, UM, EXTENSIVE MEETING WITH THE COMMUNITY AND WE HEARD A LOT OF COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS AND WERE ABLE TO ADDRESS THOSE.

BUT I CANNOT, UM, I COULD NOT SAY THAT ALL OF THOSE LETTERS WERE NOLAN VOID, BUT I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT WE WERE ABLE TO REMOVE THE VALID PETITION AND WE WERE ABLE TO, UM, WE DID ENTER INTO A PRIVATE, RESTRICTIVE COVENANT WITH THE NEIGHBOR THAT ADDRESSED FEES AND OTHER ITEMS. SO DID STAFF EVER RECEIVE, UM, A LETTER FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD, UM, ORGANIZATIONS, OH, HAN AND SUCH LIKE, UM, WITH THEIR COMMENTS AND I'M KIND OF CONCERNED THAT THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED SO MANY TIMES, IS THE NEIGHBORHOOD AWARE THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THIS THIS EVENING AFTER WHAT, THREE MONTHS? I THINK IT WAS JANUARY WHEN IT WAS FIRST POSTED.

AND THAT SEEMS TO BE THE DATE OF ALL OF THE LETTERS.

UM, LIZ JOHNSTON HERE, I, I DID RECEIVE, UM, CONFIRMATION FROM THE NEIGHBOR THAT, UM, THIS WER HAD BEEN NEGOTIATING WITH THEM THE MOST, UM, THE ADJOINING NEIGHBOR WHO SHE, WHO THEY HAVE ENTERED INTO A PRIVATE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT TO, UM, PERHAPS MS. RHODES WITH HOUSING AND PLANNING, UM, WOULD BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO, UM, UH, NOTIFICATION TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD ABOUT THIS MEETING.

AND I BELIEVE KAYLA HAS ALSO REACHED OUT TO, TO NEIGHBORS AS WELL.

SORRY, HAVING SOME TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES HERE, UM, MS. RHODES WAS, IS HAVING SOME TROUBLE WITH HER CAMERA.

UM, BUT SHE SAID THAT SHE CONCURS WITH MS. WORSE, UH, COMMENTS, BUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD PARTICIPATION AND THE APPLICANT WORKED WITH THE ADJACENT PROPERTY OWNER AND A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE CONTACT TEAM, NEIGHBORHOOD CONTACT TEAM.

AND WE DID MAKE SURE TO, UM, I REACHED OUT TO THE PEOPLE THAT HAD REGISTERED TO SPEAK AT PREVIOUS MEETINGS.

I BELIEVE STAFF DID AS WELL, UH, BECAUSE THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION IS NOT NOTICED.

UM, AND I ALSO REACHED OUT TO THE COUNCIL OFFICE CAUSE I KNOW THEY HAD RECEIVED A LOT OF COMMENTS.

SO WE MADE SURE AT LEAST TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY THAT IF, IF THERE WERE INTERESTED PARTIES, THAT THEY WERE AWARE THAT THE MEETING WAS HAPPENING.

OKAY.

SO SPECIFICALLY I THINK WE HAD LIKE 160 PAGES OF LETTERS AND ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE ASKED TO BE A NOTIFIED OF THE MEETINGS.

AND SO STAFF HAS FOLLOWED, UH, THEIR REQUESTS AND THEY HAVE NOTIFIED THEM OF THE POSTPONEMENTS AND SO FORTH.

RIGHT.

I KNOW, I CAN SAY THAT THE INDIVIDUAL THAT WE WERE WORKING WITH WAS A MEMBER OF THE CONTACT TEAM.

SO THEY HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED OF ALL OF THE, UM, ALL OF THE MEETINGS THAT HAVE THEIR OWN, IF THAT'S ME, ALL OF THE MEETINGS THAT HAVE POSTPONED, UM, THE LETTERS THAT YOU RECEIVED WERE ALSO THE VAST MAJORITY OF THEM WERE BEFORE OUR LARGER COMMUNITY MEETING THAT TOOK PLACE, UM, AFTER, AFTER THOSE LETTERS CAME IN COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, WELL, I WAS ASKING STAFF IF THEY ADD HONORED THOSE REQUESTS AND SENT ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE, UM, INFORMATION ABOUT THIS MEETING, OR DID YOU JUST CONTACT, UM, AND, AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION AND SO FORTH, BECAUSE

[00:45:01]

THEN ALMOST EVERY LETTER I READ, IT SAID THAT THEY WANTED TO BE CONTACTED COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, KAYLA CHAMPION, WATERSHED PROTECTION.

WE ALSO HAVE AN INTEREST LIST THAT WILL BE USED FOR THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

SO THOSE PEOPLE WILL BE CONTACTED BEFORE IT GOES TO PLANNING COMMISSION, WHICH IS SCHEDULED ON APRIL 26, WHERE THEY CONTACTED BEFORE THIS MEETING.

UH, I'M GOING TO CHECK WITH MS. RHODES, BUT TYPICALLY THERE IS NOT A COMMUNITY CON OR COMMUNITY NOTICE BEFORE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION.

UH, LET ME JUST CONFIRM THAT WITH MS. RHODES.

WELL, KAYLA IS CONFIRMING THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? WELL, I HAVE SEVERAL, UM, ROAD THAT GOES BACK TO, IS IT LIKE DEER PARK? IS THAT THE ROAD THAT'S BEHIND IT? UM, IT'S A 16 FOOT ROAD AND THEY ARE SAYING THAT, UH, NO ONE WILL USE IT.

AND I, I'M NOT SURE OF THE GUARANTEE OF THAT.

UM, THERE ARE NO SIDEWALKS ON THAT ROAD AND IT'S BEING USED A LOT RIGHT NOW, UM, AS SHE SAID IN HER PRESENTATION BY, UM, ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT.

AND SO THAT'S VERY CONCERNING TO ME.

I'M, I'M REALLY HOPING THAT IF PEOPLE DECIDE, UM, SOMETHING ABOUT, OR IF WE HAVE A RESOLUTION ABOUT THIS AT THE END, THAT PEOPLE WILL CONSIDER ADDING TO THAT, THAT THE 16 FOOT ROAD SHOULD BE, UM, SOMEHOW BARRICADED IN CASE OF FIRE ONLY BECAUSE I'VE SEEN THE SAME EXACT THING HAPPENED, NOT HALF A MILE FROM MY HOUSE.

AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY GO DOWN THE WRONG WAY ON A ONE WAY STREET AFTER PROMISING DILIGENTLY THAT THEY WOULD NEVER DO THAT.

SO I'M JUST SAYING IF THE GATE IS, HAS A CODE AND THE PEOPLE HAVE IT TO GET OUT OF THE CODE, UM, UNDER AN EMERGENCY CIRCUMSTANCE, THEY USE IT.

AND SO I WOULD LIKE FOR SOMETHING TO BE WRITTEN THAT WOULD SORT OF PROTECT THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND I'M ALSO WONDERING, UM, PARKLAND, THE BACK THAT WAS DESCRIBED THERE.

UM, THERE'S NO SIDEWALK ON THAT STREET.

SO IF IT'S A PRIVATE PARK AND IT'S MAINTAINED, WILL THERE BE, UM, A SIDEWALK FOR THE STREET, UH, IN THE PLANS OR IS THAT SOMETHING A TRAIL OR SOME SORT OF ACCESS THERE THAT COULD HELP? I KNOW YOU MENTIONED, UM, THE BIKE TRAIL AROUND.

YES, MA'AM MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT WITH THE RESIDENTIAL PROJECT, THAT'S BEING CONSTRUCTED TO THE SOUTH OF THIS, THAT SIDEWALKS WILL BE INSTALLED ALONG THAT ROAD.

AND THEN THEY WILL, OUR TRAIL WILL CONNECT TO THOSE SIDEWALKS.

AND MS. , CAN YOU ADDRESS THE ACCESS RESTRICTIONS OF THAT? YES, SIR.

WE DID MAKE THAT COMMITMENT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WE WOULD BE FINE ADDING THAT INTO THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

OUR ANTICIPATION IS THAT THAT ROAD WOULD HAVE A KNOX BOX THAT WOULD, SO IT'S NOT THAT RESIDENTS WOULD HAVE A CODE TO BE ABLE TO GET OUT IT'S THAT FIRE WOULD HAVE A CODE TO BE ABLE TO GET IN.

AND SO IT'S NOT RESIDENTS WOULD NOT BE PERMITTED TO USE THAT.

AND WE ARE OKAY, INCLUDING THAT, THAT HAS BEEN OUR COMMITMENT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING THAT THIS FOR FIRE AND EMERGENCY ACCESS ONLY.

SO IT WOULD HAVE LIKE A, A GATE ACROSS IT, OR I'M NOT, I DON'T, I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH WHAT A KNOX BOX IS, I GUESS, UH, GATE THESE FOLKS CAN TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT.

UM, UM, IT'S ESSENTIALLY A GATE WITH AN OX BOX.

SO, UM, IF THERE'S AN EMERGENCY THAT EMERGENCY VEHICLE COMES IN, THEY HAVE A KEY THAT GOES IN IT AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCKS THE GATE.

UM, THEY'RE, I THINK THEY'RE UNIVERSAL, BUT ESSENTIALLY THERE'S NO, THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE A KEY PAD OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT FOR A RESIDENT TO BE ABLE TO EXIT IT AS ONLY FOR SOMEONE TO BE ABLE TO GET IN OR OUT IN A TRUE EMERGENCY SITUATION.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, DOES THAT ADDRESS YOUR CONCERNS ON THAT MATTER ON THAT? YES.

I HAVE SOME ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS IF I MAY.

YES, PLEASE.

OKAY.

UM, I'M CONCERNED WITH THE FAR IS THE FAR, UM, UM, IS THAT MORE DEVELOPMENT THAN WE WOULD GET IF WE WENT WITH WHAT THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT ALLOWED THE FAR THAT WE ARE REQUESTING IS CONSISTENT WITH THE BASE ZONING DISTRICT THAT WE ARE REQUESTING THE, UH, DEVELOPMENT LIMITATION IN THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT WAS LESS.

AND, AND THAT'S, LIKE I MENTIONED AT THE BEGINNING,

[00:50:01]

THEY WERE DESIGNED TO HAVE SMALL BUILDINGS AND BIG F OR BIG IMPERVIOUS COVERS.

AND SO WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR ANYTHING OVER ZONING, BUT THAT'S ONLY IF THE ZONING IS APPROVED.

YES MA'AM AND THESE WOULD ALL GO FORWARD TOGETHER.

THEY DON'T GO FORWARD ALONE.

THEY WOULD ALL BE ON THE SAME AGENDA AT CITY COUNCIL.

OKAY.

UM, I MAY HAVE SOME MORE QUESTIONS IN JUST A MOMENT IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND COMING BACK TO ME.

YEAH.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

UM, I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS WORKING OR NOT.

YOU'RE GOOD.

YOU'RE GOOD.

UM, UH, WE WERE, UH, CONFERRING AND WHAT, WHO GOT CONTACTED ABOUT THIS MEETING AND WHO DIDN'T? UM, SO THERE'S THE INTERESTED PARTIES LIST.

THAT IS THE FORMAL PROCESS THAT, UM, ZONING AND PLANNING USES FOR THEIR PROCESS, WHICH, UH, WE DON'T HAVE THAT PROCESS HERE.

OF COURSE, WE TRIED TO REACH OUT, UM, AS MUCH AS WE CAN TO INTERESTED PARTIES.

SO KAYLA DID MAINTAIN A LIST OF FOLKS WHO DID REACH OUT TO US REGARDING ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION MEETINGS, AND THOSE PEOPLE WERE NOTIFIED ABOUT THIS MEETING TONIGHT.

SO JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY.

SO THE ONE, THE, THE INTEREST OF THE PARTIES THAT WE HAD IN OUR POSSESSION AND WATERSHED WERE CONTACTED.

THANK YOU.

OH, YES.

THOMPSON PLEASE.

UM, I'M SORRY.

I THOUGHT OF ONE MORE QUESTION.

I WONDERED IF SHE WOULD COMMENT ON THE HEIGHT, BECAUSE THAT SEEMED TO BE SOMETHING THAT WAS QUITE CONCERNING.

ABSOLUTELY.

I CAN LET ME TRY AND EXPLAIN IT, BUT IT'S SOMETIMES EASIER TO HAVE THE PICTURE BACK UP.

SO THE MAXIMUM HEIGHT WOULD BE 60 FEET, WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE GEO OR WITH THE, YEAH.

WITH THE GEO BASED DISTRICT THAT WE ARE REQUESTING.

THERE IS NOT, UH, ANY RESIDENTIAL THAT WOULD TRIGGER COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS, BUT WE HAVE BUILT IN COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS.

SO THIS SITE, UM, TRANSITIONS FROM, CAN I GET MY PICTURE BACK UP THAT HAS THE LAYOUT, PLEASE.

IT'S FAR EASIER TO EXPLAIN THAT WAY.

SO IT TRANSITIONS FROM THE TOWNHOUSE BUILDINGS THAT ARE, THANK YOU THAT YOU SEE ON THE LEFT IN THE BOTTOM LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN, THAT ARE TWO STORIES.

UM, THEN IT TRANSITIONS INTO THREE STORY BUILDINGS AND THEN FINALLY INTO FOUR STORY BUILDINGS.

UM, RIGHT.

OKAY.

UM, SO TWO, THREE AND FOUR STORY BUILDINGS.

THERE IS A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 60 FEET, BUT WE DO NOT ACHIEVE THAT HEIGHT.

OKAY.

IS THE, AND THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THE ZONING CHANGE, BUT IF THE ZONING CHANGE IS NOT GRANTED, WHAT IS THE HEIGHT RESTRICTION UNDER THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT? THE HEIGHT WAS NOT MENTIONED IN THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, SO WE ARE NOT ASKING TO MODIFY ANYTHING IN THE COVENANT.

IT'S JUST SUBJECT TO BASE ZONING.

OKAY.

SO, UM, IF THE ZONING HAS CHANGED, THEN YOU CAN HAVE THAT HEIGHT.

IS THAT CORRECT? YES, MA'AM, THAT'S ACCURATE.

OKAY.

SO I HAVE A QUESTION AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN.

UM, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT, IS THAT HOMES OR THEIR HOMES OR THEIR THAT'S SELF STORAGE? UM, AND THE REASON THAT WE'VE PUT THE TALLEST BUILDING THERE WAS BECAUSE THE BILL, THE ZONING TO THE NORTH OF, OR TO THE WEST OF THAT, UH, THE TOP OF THE SCREEN IS, UM, IS 60 FOOT ZONING.

SO IT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE, WITH ZONING AS IT TRANSITIONS TOWARDS THE WEST.

SO THERE ARE NO HOMES THERE ON THAT.

NO, MA'AM, THAT'S ACCURATE.

THERE ARE NO HOMES THERE.

OKAY.

AND THE DISTANCE, THE BUFFER THERE IS HOW WIDE FROM THE BUILDING TO THE EDGE OF YOUR PROPERTY, THERE IS A PARK PATH THAT RUNS THROUGH THERE.

SO IT'S LARGER THAN THE EXISTING SETBACK.

IF YOU GIVE ME A COUPLE OF MINUTES, I CAN GET YOU THAT ANSWER.

UM, SO MAYBE I'LL TAKE ANOTHER QUESTION AND I'LL, I'LL GET THAT FOR YOU IN JUST A MOMENT.

SO YOU GUYS WERE REQUIRED TO HAVE A 45 FOOT SETBACK FROM, OKAY.

JUST TELL ME THE ANSWER IN A FEW MINUTES.

YES MA'AM.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I'M THROUGH KEVIN.

THANK YOU.

UM, COMMISSIONER IDRA, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? YES.

THANK YOU.

UM, AND THANK YOU, MS. WARPER THE PRESENTATION THAT WE ANSWERED A LOT OF MY QUESTIONS.

UM, I HAVE ONE DOUBLE CHECKING TO MAKE SURE IN THE REPORT FROM MS. UM, FROM THE STAMP.

UH, SO THIS MAY BE A QUESTION MAYBE FOR MS. RHODES, UM, IN THE REPORT ON PAGE BETWEEN PAGE FIVE AND SIX, IT ASKS, UH, YOU KNOW, AS PART OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW, UH, THE SECOND BULLET FOR BOTH, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL OFFICE REVIEW AND THEN ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW UNDER DST IN WATERSHED PROTECTION, UM, THE PROJECT WE'LL DELETE ONE C AND TWO D OF THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, AND BE REVIEWED UNDER CURRENT ENVIRONMENTAL CODE.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT WAS ADDRESSED, UH, BECAUSE MAKING SURE THAT

[00:55:01]

YEAH, JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE.

AND THERE LIZ IS APPROACHING TO HOPEFULLY ADDRESS, UM, YES, THAT IS CORRECT.

UM, THEY ARE PROPOSING TO, UM, AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THIS PROJECT, THE, THAT PORTION OF THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT WOULD BE TERMINATED OR COMPLETED.

AND SO ANY FUTURE DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE SUBJECT TO CURRENT CODE.

AND THE, THE PROJECT ITSELF IS SUBJECT TO CURRENT CODE EXCEPT FOR THE, THE, UM, THE CHANGES THAT ARE DIRECTLY ADDRESSED, UM, HERE TODAY.

SO ADDITIONAL IMPERVIOUS COVER ADDITIONAL DON'T CUT AND FILL AND ACCESS THROUGH THE WATER QUALITY TRANSIT TRANSITION ZONE.

SO, UM, SO IT'S CURRENT CODE EXCEPT FOR THOSE THINGS.

OKAY, GREAT.

THANK YOU.

AND JUST A LITTLE COMMENT.

I KNOW, UM, IN REGARDS TO REGULAR ROADS, YOU KNOW, WHEN THEY'RE BEING BUILT, THEY'RE NOT STANDARD WITH THIS LIKE 20 FEET AND JUST MADE A NOTATION THAT IT'S THE ROAD, THE ONE THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE FOR EAGERNESS IN THE BAG IS ONLY 16 FEET.

WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR DEPARTMENT OR BY OUR TRUCK CAN MAKE SURE YOU CAN HAVE ACCESS IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S TH THE PER THE SURVEY THAT ROAD IS 36 FEET WIDE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

MY PLEASURE.

I CAN ALSO ANSWER, UM, CHRISTIAN THOMPSON'S QUESTIONS, UH, UH, COMMISSIONER, THE SETBACK AS WE HAVE IT DESIGNED IS 45 FEET.

SO THAT IS LARGER THAN THE ZONING SETBACK, WHICH, UH, I BELIEVE IS 10.

WENDY CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG.

UM, FROM A SIDE SETBACK, IT'S FIVE OR 10, SO RIGHT NOW ARE BUILDING A SETBACK 45 FEET, AND IT DOES HAVE THE PARKLAND IN BETWEEN THERE.

OKAY.

SO, UM, THAT, THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR, UH, FOR THE ROAD AND THE BIKE TRAIL.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT, THANKS SO MUCH, COMMISSIONER GARY, DID YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? UM, WELL, I JUST HAVE MAYBE A COMMENT OR IT COULD BE A QUESTION I'M LOOKING AT THE BACKUP.

AND I NOTICED ONE OF THE COMMENTS MADE BY, UM, A RESIDENT.

UM, THEIR CONCERN WAS THE NOISE DURING CONSTRUCTION.

SO I KNOW ONCE THE CONSTRUCTION STARTS ON THIS PROJECT, THEY MAY BE AN ONGOING CONCERN.

SO, UM, JUST, YOU KNOW, HOW WOULD Y'ALL ADDRESS THAT? YOU KNOW, BECAUSE IT'S A CURRENT CONCERN FOR THE CURRENT CONSTRUCTION ONCE THE, THIS PROJECT STARTS, IT'S GOING TO BE ONGOING.

SO HOW HAVE YOU ALL VISITED WITH THE RESIDENTS ABOUT THAT AS FAR AS NOISE POLLUTION? YES, MA'AM.

UM, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THEY, THE RESIDENTS HAVE HAD QUITE A BIT OF STRESS PUT ON THEM BY A PROJECT THAT'S UNDER CONSTRUCTION THAT WASN'T NECESSARILY FOLLOWING ALL OF THE NOISE RULES AND REGULATIONS.

AND SO WE ARE FULLY ALL OF THE CITY'S NOISE REGULATIONS WITH REGARD TO TIME HOURS OF OPERATIONS.

WE'VE ALSO, UH, ONE OF THE QUESTIONS THAT WE GOT IS CAN YOU MAKE SURE THAT YOU STAGE EVERYTHING AND TAKE ALL OF YOUR CONSTRUCTION ACCESS FROM 71 TO PROVIDE THE, AS BIG OF A BUFFER AS YOU CAN.

AND WE HAVE MADE THAT COMMITMENT AS WELL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THAT IS, THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

UM, SECRETARY CRYSTAL, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS? I ONLY HAVE A COMMENT.

UM, I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT, YOU KNOW, UM, UH, YOU WERE APOLOGETIC FOR, UM, YOU KNOW, POSTPONING THIS SEVERAL TIMES, BUT ANY TIME THAT ANY DEVELOPER WANTS TO STOP AND HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THE NEIGHBORHOODS, WE GREATLY WELCOME THAT.

SO THANK YOU AT HER.

YOU COULD HAVE JUST, YOU KNOW, COULD A SECOND, BUT SHE SAID, UM, YEAH, UH, YES, I, I SECOND THAT OPINION.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR MEETING WITH THE ADJACENT LAND OWNERS.

UM, IT DEFINITELY MAKES, UH, IT'S THE CONVERSATION A LITTLE MORE FULL WINDED WHEN IT COMES HERE.

UM, I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

UH, ONE, ONE COMMENT WOULD BE WITH THAT COMMITMENT OF EGRESS OFF OF 71, I'M SURE THAT'S GOING TO BE ADDITIONALLY CHALLENGING WITH ALL THE CONSTRUCTION THAT'S GOING ON WITH THAT HIGHWAY.

SO, UM, I DO REALLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT, AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE SOME OF THE CONSTRUCTION VEHICLES, AREN'T GOING TO BE REAL EXCITED ABOUT TRYING TO DO THAT, BUT, BUT THAT DEFINITELY WILL HELP, UM, FROM TRAFFIC GOING, TRYING TO GET THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

YES, SIR.

WE'VE MADE THAT COMMITMENT, THAT COMMITMENT, AND WE'VE ACTUALLY STARTED HAVING THE CONVERSATION WITH TXDOT ON WHERE OUR PERMITTING SCHEDULE WILL LAND WITH THEIR CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'VE LOOKED BECAUSE THE ROAD'S GOING TO CHANGE QUITE A BIT IN FRONT OF US SO THAT OUR TIMELINES LINE UP AND WE'RE NOT IN EACH OTHER'S WAY.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU, RIGHT, COMMISSIONERS.

UH, ANY OTHER LAST MINUTE QUESTIONS? YES, THOMPSON.

UM, DID WE EVER GET ROY ON THE PHONE CALL? NOT THAT WE'VE SEEN SO FAR, HE HAS NOT CALLED IN YET.

OKAY.

THANKS.

[01:00:02]

ALL RIGHT.

DO WE HAVE A MOTION BY ANY CHANCE? WE DO, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION MOTION, APRIL 6TH, 2022.

UM, SUBJECT IS THE, UH, 7 7 1 5 AND A HALF WEST STATE HIGHWAY 71.

AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL QUESTION RECOGNIZES THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING AN AMENDMENT TO THE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT AMENDMENT, OUR CA AREA, WHICH IS APPROXIMATELY 13.367 ACRES.

AND AS PART OF A LARGER TRACT, UM, KERN CURRENTLY, OR SORRY, UM, BEING REQUESTED TO BE ZONED TO G O M U N P.

AND WHEREAS ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION RECOGNIZES THE SITE IS LOCATED IN PROPERTY IN THE PROPERTY, UH, IS LOCATED WITHIN THE WILLIAMSON CREEK WATERSHED OF THE COLORADO RIVER BASIN, WHICH IS CLASSIFIED AS BARTON SPRINGS ZONE WATERSHED.

AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION RECOGNIZES THAT STAFF RECOMMENDS THE AMENDMENT WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS.

THE APPLICANT COMPLETES THE PROJECT ESTABLISHED BY THEIR SURFING COVENANT, SUCH THAT ANY FURTHER DEVELOPMENT PERMIT, A PERMIT, UH, UH, APPLICATION THIS PROJECT SHALL COMPLY WITH CURRENT CODE, INCLUDING SOS, UH, DEGREGATION WATER QUALITY TREATMENT, EXCEPT FOR THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS AT 50% IMPERVIOUS COVER, UH, ON A GROSS SITE CALCULATION SHALL BE ALLOWED RATHER THAN THE 65% CURRENTLY ALLOWED.

CUT AND FILLS SHOULD NOT EXCEED EIGHT FEET EXCEPT FOR BUILDING FOUNDATIONS AND STORM WATER CONTROL MEASUREMENTS, STORM WATER CONTROL FACILITIES WILL BE ALLOWED WITHIN THE WATER QUALITY TRANSITION ZONE AND LDC 25 8 3 0 AND 25 8 3 0 2 RELATED TO THE CONSTRUCTION ON SLOPES DOES NOT APPLY.

AND THEN IF, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION HAS OTHER CONDITIONS, I CAN ADD THOSE, GOT A MOTION ON THE TABLE.

LET'S SEE IF THERE'S A SECOND REAL QUICK THOMPSON THEN WE'LL UM, HAVE DISCUSSIONS THE SECOND.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

DID YOU HAVE SOME ITEM TWO? IT'S THE BODY'S MOTION NOW? YES.

I WANTED TO ADD SOMETHING TO
