ON B2.

UH, SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND HEAR FROM THE, UM, WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND HEAR FROM, HE WAS QUEUED UP.

SURE.

SO WE'LL HEAR FIRST FROM THE REQUESTERS OF THE POSTPONEMENT.

UM, SO WE'LL BEGIN WITH COHEN DILLAHUNTY FOLLOWED BY JOSHUA ELLINGER EACH WILL HAVE TWO MINUTES.

OKAY.

SO WE JUST HAVE TWO SPEAKERS PER SLIDE.

CORRECT.

OKAY.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH IT, BUT WHEN WE GOT THE EMAIL FROM STAFF THAT SAID IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND, IT SAID THE, UH, THE PEOPLE FROM THE DEVELOPMENT WEB FIRST, IS THAT CUSTOMARY? NO.

UM, WE, UM, HOLD ON.

UH, WE'VE TYPICALLY WE HAVE REQUESTED AGAIN, AND THE FOLKS THAT ARE IN FAVOR OF THE POSTPONEMENT GO FIRST.

NO, THAT MAKES SENSE.

BUT THE, BUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT WAS SENT OUT BY STAFF OUT OF THE OTHER WAY AROUND, I DON'T ANYWAY, WE'RE, WE'RE FINE.

WELL, AS LONG AS DO WE HAVE EVERYONE HERE FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD? YEP.

OKAY.

IS THERE A REBUTTAL THOUGH? CAUSE I WANT IT TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER NO, THERE'S JUST TWO.

UH, EACH PARTY HAS TWO SPEAKERS, UH, THREE MINUTES FOR THE PRIMARY SPEAKER, TWO MINUTES FOR THE SECOND SPEAKER AND THEN IT GOES ON TO Q AND A AFTER THAT.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT, THANKS.

OH, HELLO.

UH, COHEN DILLAHUNTY FROM THE HANCOCK NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

I CAN GO AHEAD AND GET STARTED WHENEVER YOU'RE READY.

OH YEAH, PLEASE PROCEED.

RIGHT.

WELL THANK YOU COMMISSIONERS AND EVERYONE FOR AN ATTENDANCE TONIGHT, UM, LIKE TO SPEAK IN OPPOSITION WHILE ACTUALLY REQUESTING A POSTPONEMENT FOR THIS ITEM.

ACTUALLY THE POSTPONEMENT IS FOR JUNE 28TH, NOT JUNE 14TH, THERE WAS A CONFLICT HERE.

SO 60 DAY POSTPONEMENT.

UM, AND I'LL, I'LL GO THROUGH THE REASONS FOR DOING THAT NOW.

SO CONTRARY TO THE STATEMENTS IN THE STAFF REPORT THAT WE HAD ADEQUATE DISCLOSURE FOR THIS, UH, WE DIDN'T RECEIVE THE FULL DOCUMENTATION PACKET UNTIL APRIL 1ST.

THIS WAS A T H CD FINANCING APPLICATION.

WE HAD HAD EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS AND ALSO, UM, A FEW POWERPOINT AND MEETINGS WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT ALL THE FACTUAL INFORMATION WAS INCLUDED IN THIS APRIL ONE PACKET.

SO EVEN AFTER WE BECAME AWARE OF THIS 200 PLUS PAGE REPORT, IT TOOK US SEVERAL WEEKS TO REVIEW THAT REPORT.

AND THAT PUSHES THE TIMELINE FURTHER AHEAD.

AND THEN ON APRIL 7TH, THERE WAS A CITY HOSTED COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, ZOOM MEETING THAT EACH AND WE CONDUCTED A FOLLOW-UP ZONING COMMITTEE MEETING IN H AND A ON APRIL 20TH.

AND DURING THAT MEETING, THE APPLICANT PRESENTED TO PROPOSED SITE PLANS.

IN ADDITION TO THE ADDITIONAL OPTION, BOTH WITH DIFFERENT ZONING REQUIREMENTS, HEIGHT AND COVER REQUIREMENTS EFFECTIVELY RESETTING THE OPTIONS FOR CONSIDERATION H AND A IS STILL CURRENTLY UNCERTAIN, WHICH SITE PLAN THE APPLICANT INTENDS TO PURSUE.

AND THEN BASED ON THE INFORMATION FROM THE APRIL 20TH MEETING H AND A RUSH TO HOLD A SPECIAL CALLED MEETING OF ITS MEMBERS ON APRIL 28TH, DURING THAT SPECIAL MEETING, THE MEMBER VOTING MEMBERSHIP VOTED 87.5% TO OPPOSE THE PROJECT AND BEGIN THE PROCESS OF RETAINING EXPERTS NEEDED TO OPPOSE AND CONTEST.

THE PROJECT FURTHER.

KANPAK HAS NOT YET BEEN ABLE TO MEET WITH THE APPLICANT IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD SO THAT IT CAN PROVIDE ITS RECOMMENDATION.

THE MEETING IS SCHEDULED FOR MAY 16TH.

ALTHOUGH KANPAK HAS REQUESTED A POSTPONEMENT TO JUNE 14TH TO GIVE TIME TO FULLY REVIEW THE APPLICANTS PLAN AND H AND H CONCERNS H AND A SIMPLY ASKED FOR AN EQUAL AMOUNT OF TIME THAT THE APPLICANT AND THE CITY HAD IN DEVELOPING THE PROJECT, WHICH IS 60 DAYS FROM TODAY'S DATE.

THE APPLICANT ACTUALLY BEGAN WORKING ON THIS PROJECT IN AN EARLIER FORM IN 2020, AND I'VE GOT SOME EXHIBITS IN IT THAT ARE ATTACHED IN EMAIL, UM, UNBENOUNCED H AND A NUMEROUS LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS SHOW THE CITY STAFF AND HOUSING AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN HAKA HAVE BEEN PRIVATELY WORKING ON THIS PROJECT WITH THE APPLICANT IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH OF 2022

[00:20:01]

MONTHS BEFORE THE COMMUNITY MEETING, IT WAS NOT FULLY DISCLOSED THAT HAKA HAD AGREED TO BUY THREE LOTS ON 39TH STREET THAT CITY AGENCIES HAD AGREED TO.

AND THAT CITY AGENCIES HAD FUND WOULD FUND A VOUCHER REVENUE STREAM FOR THIS PROJECT SINCE THE APPLICANT CITY.

AND HACA HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE PROJECT FOR OVER TWO MONTHS, H AND M NOW NEEDS EQUAL TIME, AT LEAST TWO MONTHS TO HAVE ITS EXPERTS REVIEW MATERIALS AND PREPARE FOR THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

IS THAT RIGHT? YEAH, BUT THAT'S THREE MINUTES.

IS THAT CORRECT? I THOUGHT I HAD FIVE MINUTES AS THE NO DISCUSSION POST FOAM.

IT'S IT'S THREE AND TWO.

UH, YOU'RE THE PRIMARY SPEAKER.

YOU GET THREE, I'VE GOT, I'LL GIVE YOU A FEW MORE MOMENTS TO, FOR CLOSING ARGUMENTS.

UH, WE NEED TIME TO SECURE EXPERTS FOR THIS PROJECT, INCLUDING ARCHITECTS, CIVIL ENGINEERS, AND LEGAL.

THOSE EXPERTS WILL TAKE SIGNIFICANT TIME TO LINE UP.

IT CAN BE SEVERAL WINKS TO SCHEDULE AND A FEW AFTER THAT FOR REPORTS.

AND EVEN THOUGH THE APPLICANT HAS DEADLINES THAT THEY NEED TO MEET THIS, WE HAVE DEADLINES, UM, AND THINGS WE NEED TO FOLLOW UP ON FOR A PROJECT THAT WILL LAST 50 YEARS ON OUR NEIGHBORHOODS.

THANK YOU.

THANKS FEDERATION.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WE'LL NOW HEAR FROM JOSHUA ELLEN GERRY.

MR. ALGER.

YOU'LL HAVE TWO MINUTES.

I HAVE A POWERPOINT SLIDE.

OKAY.

UM, YOU GUYS GOT A CUDA OR DO YOU DOES NOT ACTUALLY SHOW YOU DON'T SHOW THE POWERPOINT DURING THE CALL, WHICH, UH, SO I, I, I GAVE STAFF A POWERPOINT SLIDE, JOSHUA ALINKA.

WELL, YOU HAVE A FEW MINUTES TO WORK THIS OUT AND THEN WE'LL START YOUR TONGUE.

NO PROBLEM.

WE COULD JUST POSTPONE THIS OR TWO WEEKS AND COME BACK AND DO THE POSTPARTUM.

AND AGAIN, IT'S JUST GETTING .

ALL RIGHT.

ARE WE READY? GO.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I'M JOSHUA ELLINGER.

I LIVE RIGHT NEXT TO THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

I'VE BEEN TALKING A LOT WITH THE DEVELOPERS.

UM, AND IF YOU COULD GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

UM, SO THIS IS A RARE CASE IN WHICH A FLUM AMENDMENT, UM, ACTUALLY DESERVES AN INFINITE, UH, INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT, WHICH YOU DON'T NORMALLY DO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, AS, YOU KNOW, TEXT DOC THINKS THAT HIGHWAY SHOULD BE BIG AND VERY, VERY WIDE, AND WE'RE ABOUT TO GET, UM, A NUMBER OF LOTS, AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN TAKEN FROM THE HIGHWAY, WHICH KIND OF RESETS WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN EAST HANCOCK BY QUITE A BIT.

UH, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WHAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD WOULD LIKE TO SEE.

ACTUALLY, THIS IS REALLY MORE THE NEAR NEIGHBORS, UH, FROM TALKING TO THEM AS WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

THERE'S A POTENTIAL FOR UP TO EIGHT ACRES OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING NEAR THE HIGHWAY, BUT TO MAINTAIN COMPATIBILITY WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND ACTUALLY IT ALIGNS WITH

[00:25:01]

THE EXISTING FLOM.

WE'D LIKE TO SEE A PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY.

INSTEAD, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WOULD TAKE A LOT OF TIME TO PUT TOGETHER AN EFFORT WE'VE GOT MULTIPLE PROPERTY OWNERS WE NEED TO DEAL WITH.

AND SO WE WANT A INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT OF THE FLAMAN MEANT TO GIVE US TIME TO DO THIS, UH, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, FOR ZONING.

THERE'S ACTUALLY A DIFFERENT CASE FOR POSTPONEMENT.

UM, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A BIT MORE INFORMATION.

WE'LL ACTUALLY NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, SO THEY'RE IN A COMPETITIVE SITUATION AGAINST A DEVELOPMENT CALLED THE LANCASTER, AND THEY'RE LEADING BY ONE POINT, WE HAVE CONTESTED A NUMBER OF POINTS WITH THE STATE AND INCLUDING SOME THINGS THAT I THINK WE'RE GOING TO GET EASILY.

AND IF THIS CHANGES BY A SINGLE POINT, ACTUALLY REALLY TWO, THEN THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET FUNDED FOR THE CYCLE.

AND SO IT'S PREMATURE FOR YOU GUYS TO CONSIDER WHETHER OR NOT THIS CASE SHOULD MOVE FORWARD.

WE SHOULD WAIT A MONTH OR 60 DAYS TO GET THE FINAL SCORE.

UM, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND IN FACT, KATIE LOSS DOES NOT ACTUALLY NEED THE ZONING CHANGE.

THEY NEED CLAIM TO NEED BY AUGUST.

THEY'VE PRESENTED US A PLAN THAT SAYS THEY CAN DO A SIX STORY RESIDENTIAL TOWER.

UM, THERE'S NO REAL TIME PRESSURE.

UH, THEN WHAT LAST SLIDE PLEASE? UM, IT'S ALSO KIND OF BAD PUBLIC POLICY IN MY MIND TO, TO, UH, LET THEM HAVE AN EXPLODING OFFER TO FORCE A TIME SCHEDULE WHEN THEY DON'T REALLY NEED IT.

SO I WOULD LIKE YOU TO, UH, SET UP SET AN EXAMPLE AND ACTUALLY DELAY IT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU.

WE'LL NOW HEAR FROM THE APPLICANTS, MISS MEGAN LASH.

THIS LASH YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES FOLLOWED BY KATIE MORE.

DO I HAVE CONTROL OF THE SLIDES? OKAY, GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS MEGAN LASH.

I'M THE PRESIDENT OF OSA INDUSTRIES.

UM, THIS PROJECT IS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE AUSTIN AFFORDABLE HOUSING COALITION, A NON-PROFIT ARM OF HAKA AND SGI VENTURES.

A WOMEN OWNED AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEVELOPER, SAGE BOOK DEVELOPMENT, AND OSA INDUSTRIES ARE THE DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANTS FOR THIS PROJECT, ALONG WITH NEW HOPE HOUSING, UM, WHICH WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS PARTNERSHIP BECAUSE OUR HIGHLY REGARDED PSH DEVELOPER, THIS TEAM HAS 20 PLUS YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND AFFORDABLE MULTI-FAMILY IN TEXAS.

AUSTIN IS OUR HOME.

THIS IS WHERE WE LIVE.

THIS IS WHERE WE WORK.

THIS IS WHERE WE DEVELOP HOUSING TO TRY TO HELP FURTHER THE CITY OF AUSTIN'S GOALS TO CREATE HIGH QUALITY AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED NUMEROUS PROJECTS IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS, BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF DISCUSSION OVER THE TIMELINE OF THE ZONING CASE.

I WANT TO BRIEFLY TAKE YOU THROUGH THE HISTORY.

NEXT TWO SLIDES, PLEASE.

LAST YEAR WE HAD THE SITE UNDER CONTRACT FOR A DIFFERENT TDH APPLICATION.

THERE HAS BEEN SOME CONFUSION ABOUT THIS POINT WHILE WE WERE UNDER CONTRACT BRIEFLY AND SUBMITTED A PRE-APPLICATION AT ETA AND THE 2021 CYCLE.

WE QUICKLY TERMINATED THE CONTRACT AND DID NOT MOVE FORWARD IN EFFORT TO BETTER POSITION THE ROSEWOOD DEVELOPMENT IN THE TDA FUNDING COMPETITION, WHICH WE KNEW WAS A HIGH PRIORITY TO THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

AND TO HAKA IN DECEMBER 21, WE MANAGED TO GET THE SITE BACK UNDER CONTRACT AND BEGAN THE PROCESS FOR THE NEXT TDH APPLICATION.

THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WAS DESIGNED TO HELP MEET THE CITY'S PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING GOALS AND RESPOND TO THE HUGE NEED FOR SINGLE-ROOM OCCUPANCY UNITS THAT THE CITY HAS.

THE CHANGE WAS A DIRECT RESPONSE FOR FEEDBACK FROM COUNCIL AND FROM THE STAFF.

WE NOTIFIED THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF OUR PROPOSED PROJECT JANUARY 7TH, TWO WEEKS AFTER GETTING IT UNDER CONTRACT AND QUICKLY SET UP OUR FIRST MEETING WITH THEM JANUARY 12TH, BUT ANOTHER MEETING WITH THE COMMISSION ON THE SECOND AND EVEN SYMPTOMS SITE PLANS ON FEBRUARY 24TH.

IN ADDITION TO OUR MEETINGS AND ONGOING COMMUNICATION WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, WE'VE HAD THREE FULL NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION MEETINGS AND PRESENTED SITE PLANS TO SEEK NEIGHBORHOOD FEEDBACK.

YOU WILL SEE IN YOUR PACKET, CLEAR COMMUNICATION ABOUT THE DATES AND THE DEADLINES, INCLUDING THE COMMUNICATION OF OUR FINANCING REQUIREMENTS TO HAVE ZONING FINALIZED BY THE END OF AUGUST, WE'VE SOUGHT TO BE OPEN AND FORTHCOMING AND PROACTIVE IN OUR ENGAGEMENT.

AND WE CONTINUE TO DO SO AND PROVIDE INFORMATION APPLICABLE TO THE ZONING CASE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE INFORMATION WE'VE PROVIDED INCLUDES A 500 PAGE THEL TDG APPLICATION, WHICH INCLUDES ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING SITE PLAN, ORGANIZATIONAL CHARTS, FINANCIAL INFORMATION, EVERYTHING IS ON THE TDA WEBSITE THAT YOU COULD EVER WANT.

ANY CHANGES WE HAVE MADE TO THE SITE PLAN RECENTLY ARE REALLY AN EFFORT JUST TO TRY TO TAKE IN NEIGHBORHOOD FEEDBACK.

IT IS NOT NEEDED FOR THIS ZONING CASE WHILE WE'VE TRIED OUR BEST TO GIVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD ALL THE INFORMATION THEY MIGHT NEED TO CONSIDER FOR THIS ZONING CHANGE.

WE ARE READY FOR THIS CASE TO BE HEARD TONIGHT.

UM, IF THE COUNTY, THE COMMISSION SO DESIRES, WE UNDERSTAND THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS A REQUEST FOR JULY.

WE ARE AMENABLE TO A TWO WEEK DELAY, IF THAT IS EVERYONE'S DESIRE, BUT ANYTHING AFTER 5 24 MAY 24TH SIMPLY PUTS THE PROJECT AT RISK.

UM, WE HAVE TO HAVE OUR ZONING IN PLACE BY THE TIME WE GET OUR COMMITMENT NOTICE AND HAVE TO TURN IT BACK INTO TD CA, WHICH IS TRADITIONALLY AT THE END OF AUGUST.

[00:30:02]

SO I THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AND I'M HERE FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

WELL, NO, HERE FROM THIS MORNING, GOOD EVENING.

MY NAME IS KATE MOORE.

I'M THE VICE PRESIDENT OF STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR ECHO, WHICH IS THE ENDING COMMUNITY HOMELESSNESS COALITION.

IT'S NICE TO SEE SOME FRIENDLY FACES HERE TONIGHT.

UM, I'M HERE TO, UM, TALK ABOUT THE PROPOSED KATIE GLOSS DEVELOPMENT.

IT'S A HUNDRED PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING UNITS.

I HAVE A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT, BUT I'LL STICK MY COMMENTS HERE AS ABOUT THE DELAY PROPOSED DELAY.

UM, WE HERE ARE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTING THAT YOU NOT DELAY AND THAT ANY DELAY, UM, YOU DO WOULD ONLY NOT EXCEED THE 14 DAYS, JUST SO THAT THE DEVELOPMENT CAN MEET THE, ALL OF THE EXPECTED DEADLINES FOR TDH CA I WORKED FOR TD HTA FOR FIVE YEARS, AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THEY'RE NOT MESSING AROUND WHEN THEY SAY IT'S LATE, IT'S LATE.

AND THEN YOUR DEAL IS DEAD.

SO I RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT YOU, IF YOU DO DO A DELAY THAT YOU ONLY DO THE 14 DAY DELAY.

THANK YOU.

SURE.

THAT CONCLUDES THE SPEAKERS.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

UH, COMMISSIONERS.

UM, WE HAVE, UH, EIGHT COMMISSIONERS, FIVE MINUTES TEACH.

OH, I'M SORRY.

YOU HAVE, MAYBE HAVE ANOTHER SPEAKER OR WE DO.

NOPE.

WELL, NO, WE ONLY HAVE TWO, TWO EACH.

YEAH.

FOR, UM, WELL, IF WE GO, IF WE HEAR THIS TONIGHT, YOU CAN SPEAK, THIS IS JUST ON THE DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT.

CAN I TAKE ONE MORE SECOND? UM, I SIGNED UP TO SPEAK ON THE DISCUSSION.

WELL, IF SOMEBODY TOOK YOUR PLACE, I'M SORRY.

WE ONLY HAVE TWO SPOTS.

IT'S IT'S, IT'S, I'M SORRY.

UH, BUT STAY AROUND BECAUSE IF WE HEAR IT, UM, IF YOU SIGNED UP TO SPEAK, UM, WE DEFINITELY WANT TO HEAR YOU.

I APOLOGIZE.

ANYWAY, WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE Q AND A, UH, BUT I HAVE SOMETHING THAT'S MATERIAL TO IT'S.

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

YOU'VE HAD YOUR TIME AND STAFF TOLD US THAT WE WOULD NOT HEAR THIS DENY.

SO WE DID NOT COME PREPARED TO ACTUALLY HEAR THE CASE.

WE ACTUALLY TOLD US THAT WE CHECKED SEVERAL TIMES, SO IT NEEDS TO BE EITHER WE'LL, WE'LL TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION, BUT WE DO, WE DO HAVE THE OPTION TO HEAR IT THIS EVENING AND MAKE A MOTION TO CLOSE PUBLIC HEARING.

IS THERE A, I DON'T THINK WE NO PUBLIC HEARING, WE'RE JUST IN DISCUSSION POST ON, UH, I'M SORRY.

WE'RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE GOOD USE OF PUBLIC SIGN HERE.

SO I'M MOVING THINGS ALONG.

UH, SO WE, WE WANT TO ASK QUESTION TO BE ALL, SO LET'S GET TO THE Q AND A, ON THE DELAY.

UH, WHO'S FIRST, UH, COMMISSIONER SHEA, AND THEN WE'LL GO TO THE SCREEN AFTER THAT.

I THINK IT'S NOT HIM.

SO I'LL GO AHEAD AND ASK THE, UH, NEIGHBOR, UH, INDIVIDUAL THAT WANTED TO SPEAK WHAT YOUR, UH, WHAT THE LAST INFORMATION YOU SAID WAS JUST SPECIFICALLY FROM STAFF.

SO WE RECEIVED TWO THINGS FROM STAFF.

WE JUST RECEIVED, UM, A ASSURANCE THAT THERE WOULD NOT BE THAT IT WAS EITHER A TWO WEEK POSTPONEMENT OR IT WAS, UH, IT WAS GOING TO BE WHAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD, A GREAT TOOL.

AND WE EXPLICITLY ASKED, CAUSE WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.

WE WOULD HAVE SHOWN UP WITH MORE PEOPLE AND I WOULD HAVE SHOWN UP WITH ANOTHER POWERPOINT, UH, IF WE HAD NO.

OKAY.

UH, THE SECOND THING TO, UH, IS IT PAULO? IS THAT WHAT NAME DO YOU GO BY? YEAH, PAULA.

UH, SO PAULA AND I BOTH GOT THE SAME EMAIL AND THAT EMAIL HAD A DIFFERENT SPEAKING ORDER AND TIME.

SO WE WERE EXPECTING SOMETHING QUITE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT'S HAPPENING.

SO NOW A QUESTION TO STAFF.

SO JUST TO CLARIFY, SO THIS IS THE FIRST REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

IS THAT CORRECT? RE MEREDITH HOUSING AND PLANNING? YES.

OKAY.

UM, THAT'S IT ON MY QUESTIONS FOR NOW? THANKS.

ALRIGHT.

UH, COMMISSIONER PLAYED HIM.

I HAVE A QUESTION ALSO FOR MS. MEREDITH.

UM, THANK YOU.

IT, I WAS A SENSE OF EMAILS BETWEEN NEIGHBORHOOD AND STAFF THAT INDICATED THAT THE APPLICANT ACTUALLY WAS REQUESTING A POSTPONEMENT PRIOR TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S REQUEST, UM, FOR, UH, MAY 24TH.

AND I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THE IS READY FOR TONIGHT, BUT WAS THAT REQUEST MADE PRIOR TO THE NEIGHBORHOODS REQUEST? SO INITIALLY, UM, MEGAN LASH SAID THAT THEY WOULD, UM, UH, ASK FOR A POSTPONEMENT TO MAY 24TH BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTOOD KANPAK NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING, CONTACT TEAM WAS GOING TO MEET ON MAY 16TH TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION.

SO THEN THAT'S HOW I WAS MOVING FORWARD.

AND THAT'S WHAT I COMMUNICATED

[00:35:01]

TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AT SOME POINT, UH, UM, THAT CHANGED, I MUST HAVE MISSED OR MISUNDERSTOOD A CONVERSATION THAT HAPPENED WHERE IT, SHE WAS THEN SAYING, WELL, WE'RE GOING TO BE READY FOR ACTION.

UH, TODAY MAY 10TH, BUT WE WOULD BE AMENABLE TO A MAY 24TH POSTPONEMENT IF THE NEIGHBORHOOD WERE TO ASK FOR IT.

SO THEN THAT EMAIL, I THINK AT SOME POINT IT WAS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT THAT WAS NOW WHAT WAS THE PLAN THE APPLICANT WAS PROPOSING TO DO, AND ALSO MADE IT CLEAR THAT SHE WAS NOT ABLE TO GO BEYOND MAY 24TH FOR A POSTPONE.

THANK YOU FOR THAT CLARIFICATION.

OKAY.

UH, COMMISSIONER HUIZAR.

THANK YOU, CHAIRMAN MR. KHAN LEAK AND YOU SPEAK TO THE ISSUE AROUND THE POSTPONEMENT UM, SURE.

AND I'LL BE VERY BRIEF.

UM, I DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT TO SAY THAT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN STATED.

I JUST WANTED TO EMPHASIZE HOW IMPORTANT THIS CASE IS TO THE COMMUNITY AND THAT WE HAVE OUR EYES ON THIS CASE.

WE'RE WATCHING IT VERY CLOSELY AND ANY POSTPONEMENT THAT COULD POTENTIALLY JEOPARDIZE THE FUNDING FOR THIS CASE IS SOMETHING THAT WE TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY.

AND ON THAT NOTE, I ALSO WANTED TO COMMENT THAT WE ARE VERY AWARE OF THE OTHER CASE THAT WAS SHOWN AND TO PIT TWO LIGHT-TECH CASES AGAINST EACH OTHER.

UM, WE THINK IS VERY UNFORTUNATE.

UM, AND WE ALSO THINK THAT IN THIS CASE, IT IS PARTICULARLY UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE THE OTHER CASE IS IN DISTRICT FOUR, WHICH ALREADY HAS A NUMBER OF, UH, UM, PSH DEVELOPMENTS IN THE WORKS.

SO TO PRIORITIZE THAT OVER THIS OR TO RISK, PRIORITIZING THAT OVER, THIS IS ALSO TO FAIL TO AFFIRMATIVELY FURTHER FAIR HOUSING.

SO THERE'S A NUMBER OF REASONS WHY WE THINK IT'S CRUCIAL THAT THIS CASE NOT BE POSTPONED PAST FOR ANY LATER THAN 14 DAYS.

BUT IN ANY CASE, I WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT WE ARE WATCHING THIS CASE VERY CLOSELY IN ALL OF AUSTIN HAS ITS EYES ON THIS CASE.

THANK YOU, JAY.

DO I STILL HAVE TIME? YES.

UM, MS. LASH, CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO, UM, YOU'RE AGREEING TO POSTPONE THIS, IT SEEMS LIKE YOU WERE WORKING ON WHAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAD ASKED.

CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO THAT? SURE.

UM, CONTRARY TO PUBLIC BELIEF, I'M TRYING TO JUST MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY, UM, WITH TRYING TO WORK ON THE DATES AND, AND I UNDERSTAND, UM, SOME OF THE TIMELINES AND WHO REQUESTS, WHAT CAN BE A LITTLE BIT CONFUSING, BUT I MADE IT KNOWN AT THE LAST MEETING THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, WE CAN, WE CAN WORK WITH THEM TO AN EXTENT I CANNOT WORK WITH A 60 DAY DELAY.

UM, BUT YOU KNOW, WHETHER THAT REQUEST HAD TO COME FROM ME FROM ME OR THE NEIGHBORHOOD, THERE'S A BIT OF A MISCOMMUNICATION THERE, BUT ME SAYING I'M AMENABLE TO IT KIND OF GOT CONVOLUTED IF IT WAS ASKED.

AND SO JUST TO CONFIRM WHAT I'M HEARING IS THAT THIS IS ALWAYS WAS THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S REQUEST FOR POSTPONEMENT.

AND YOU WERE JUST SAYING THAT YOU'RE AMENABLE TO IT.

NOT THAT YOU'RE READY TO ESSENTIALLY GO TODAY.

I AM.

UM, LIKE I SAID, I'M AMENABLE TO THE POST HOME.

IT, I AM READY TO GO TODAY BECAUSE THAT, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO GET THROUGH, WE ONLY HAVE THREE COUNCIL MEETINGS, UM, BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF AUGUST BECAUSE THEY DO NOT MEET IN AUGUST AT ALL AND WHAT'S IN JULY.

SO, UM, I WAS OFFERING THAT JUST TO KIND OF TRY TO DO HELP, YOU KNOW, MEET IN THE MIDDLE SOMEWHERE.

THANK YOU.

AND I APPRECIATE YOU WORKING ON THE NEIGHBORHOOD ON THIS, UH, COMMISSIONER SNYDER, UH, QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT.

SO, UM, IF WE WERE TO POSTPONE THIS FOR, UM, 14 DAYS, UH, ARE YOU, ARE YOU, OR IS YOUR TEAM ABLE TO MEET WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND, OR THE NEIGHBORS, UH, DURING THAT TIME, ARE YOU PLANNING AND AVAILABLE TO BE FLEXIBLE? WHETHER IT BE SOMEBODY AVAILABLE, EVEN IF IT'S ON SHORT NOTICE FOR A MEETING, I AM HAPPY TO CONTINUE TO MEET WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION AT THIS POINT.

UM, WE SUBMITTED OUR ORIGINAL SITE PLAN, UM, FEBRUARY 24TH.

I AM NOT SURE.

UM, AND THAT'S ALL IN THE COMMISSION BACKUP AND, YOU KNOW, THE EXCHANGE IN THE EMAILS.

I'M NOT SURE WE'VE NOT RECEIVED ANY FEEDBACK OTHER THAN, UM, KIND OF GO AWAY.

LIKE WE'VE LOOKED AT DIFFERENT THINGS.

UM, WE'VE LOOKED AT EVEN, YOU KNOW, WE'VE RECEIVED FEEDBACK TO GO ON DIFFERENT PROPERTY.

THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WE CAN NOT DO.

UM, BUT IF WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE, UM, YOU KNOW, CHANGES WITHIN AND THE SITE PLAN IS, IS REALLY NOT NEEDED FOR THE ZONING CASE, BUT WE'RE TRYING TO, TO SHOW AND HELP PEOPLE VISUALIZE WHAT THIS WOULD LOOK LIKE FROM A BOTH ELEVATIONAL STANDPOINT.

AGAIN, WE'RE HAPPY TO CONTINUE

[00:40:01]

TO MEET WITH THEM EVEN AFTER THE ZONING PROCESS TO WORK THROUGH THE SITE PLAN.

UM, BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT WE'LL GET ANY FEEDBACK OTHER THAN THEY WANT TO LOOK AT THE FINANCIALS AND ALL THE EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE THAT HAS OCCURRED.

SO JUST TO BE CLEAR, IF THEY ASKED YOU TO COME TO A MEETING OR THEY WANT TO DISCUSS TO HAVE SOME QUESTIONS, BUT YOU CAN ANSWER YOU'RE AVAILABLE TO DO THAT.

HAPPY TO DO THAT AS IT RELATES TO THE ZONING CASE, YOU NEED MORE TIME.

COMMISSIONER SNYDER.

DO YOU HAVE A FEW MORE MINUTES? THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER ANDERSON.

THANKS JERRY.

CAN I ASK MR. ELLENDER? YES.

QUICK QUESTION FOR YOU.

SO WE'RE HEARING PRETTY CLEARLY FROM THE APPLICANT THAT THEY WOULD NOT PREFER TO GO ANY LONGER THAN 14 DAYS.

WHAT VALUE, IF ANY, IS THERE FOR YOU ALL TO HAVE 14 DAY DELAY? YOU MEAN JUST A 14 DAY DELAY? UM, THE MAIN VALUE IS THAT WE WEREN'T PREPARED FOR TONIGHT AND WE DON'T HAVE, UH, ALL OF OUR PEOPLE.

WE DON'T HAVE OUR ARGUMENTATION.

WE DON'T HAVE OUR POWERPOINTS HERE.

SO 14, 14 DELAY DAY DELAY.

AT LEAST IT GIVES US TIME TO GET THAT TOGETHER.

UM, WHERE YOU, WHERE YOU WONDERING WHAT A 30 DAY DELAY WOULD GET US? I'M NOT LOOKING FOR THAT.

NO.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

GREAT.

THANK YOU, SIR.

ALRIGHT.

UH, COMMISSIONER PRACTICES.

UM, YES, EVERY QUESTION FOR THE SAME GENTLEMEN WHO JUST RESPONDED NOW.

OKAY.

YES.

MR. ALINGER IT'S, THERE'S SOMETHING IN PARTICULAR YOU ARE HOPING TO ACCOMPLISH IN CONVERSATIONS WITH THE DEVELOPER DURING THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

LIKE, ARE THERE SPECIFIC ASKS FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD RIGHT NOW THAT YOU THINK YOU COULD HASH OUT IF, IF YOU WERE GIVEN TWO MORE WEEKS? WELL, CERTAINLY THE CLEAR ONE IS LIKE, PUT THIS OPTION THREE ON THE TABLE, WHICH, UM, THE ZONING CHANGE THEY'RE REQUESTING HAS A HYPE OVERLAY ON IT.

AND THEY WOULDN'T ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO, TO EXECUTE ON THAT.

IF YOU GAVE THEM THE ZONING, THEY REQUESTED, THEY COULDN'T DO THE THIRD OPTION, WHICH IS THE RESIDENTIAL TOWER.

I PERSONALLY FAVOR A RESIDENTIAL TOWER.

I'M VERY HAPPY.

THEY, THEY PUT UP THE OPTIONS.

UM, BUT I SPEAK FOR MYSELF, NOT FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

SO I THINK THAT'S THE THING WE COULD WORK OUT OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

UM, REALISTICALLY A MONTH WOULD BE MUCH BETTER, BUT I KNOW THAT'S NOT LIKELY ANY OTHER, IS THAT ANSWERING YOUR QUESTION? YEAH.

THANK YOU.

UM, AND THEN FOR THE APPLICANT, HAVE THOSE PARTICULAR REQUESTS TO LOOK INTO THOSE OPTIONS BEEN MADE OF YOU ALREADY.

AND HOW DID, DID YOU HAVE, DID YOU HAVE A RESPONSE TO THE NEIGHBORS ON THAT ONE? IS THAT, IS ANY OF THAT FEASIBLE? SURE.

SO REALLY THE ONLY FEEDBACK AFTER WE PRESENTED, YOU KNOW, MULTIPLE OPTIONS OF SITE PLANS FOR CONSIDERATION, UM, WAS PROVIDE, UM, YOU KNOW, THE FINANCIALS, THE PHASE ONES.

WE'VE NOT REALLY GOTTEN FEEDBACK IF THE NEIGHBORHOOD WOULD LIKE TO SEE ONE OF THE SITE PLANS VERSUS THE OTHERS SINCE THE APRIL MEETING, UM, YOU KNOW, WHILE WE COULD TODAY GO OUT AND BUILD, UM, WITH AFFORDABILITY AND LOCKED ON THE ELO PARCELS, A SIX STORY BUILDING, WE WERE REALLY NOT WANTING TO DO THAT.

AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE IN FRONT OF YOU FOR THIS DOTING CASE.

WE WERE WANTING TO BUILD A THREE AND A FOUR STORY BUILDING IT'S IN THIS CLIMATE, IN THIS, YOU KNOW, SUPER EXPENSIVE CONSTRUCTION MARKET.

IT'S JUST GOING TO TAKE MORE CITY FUNDING TO BUILD THAT HIGHER, HIGHER DENSITY PROJECT OR THE HIGHER, UM, HEIGHT BUILDING.

AND I DON'T THINK THAT'S THE BEST USE OF, OF WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO.

IT'S IT'S, TO US, WE FELT LIKE IT WAS A WIN-WIN FOR EVERYBODY TO GO THE SHORTER ROUTE.

UM, WE ORIGINALLY REQUESTED AN MF SIX ZONING AND OFFERED TO PUT A CEO ON THE SITE.

UM, WE REALLY HAVEN'T GOTTEN A LOT OF FEEDBACK ON THAT, UM, CEO OFFERING OTHER THAN THE CEO'S WEREN'T ENFORCED, THAT'S THE ONE FEEDBACK THAT WE HEARD.

UM, AND, YOU KNOW, I I'M, FROM THE MF SIX PERSPECTIVE, WE REALLY LOOKED AT IT AND FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE IT WORK WITH MFR.

SO WE'RE ACTUALLY FINE WITH THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION OF MFR.

UM, SO W W WE'RE KIND OF, I FEEL LIKE A LITTLE BIT SHOOTING IN THE DARK FROM WHAT WE WOULD DO IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

I AM VERY HAPPY TO CONTINUE TO, IF I CAN GET SOME FEEDBACK.

UM, BUT HONESTLY THE I'VE NOT GOTTEN A CLEAR DIRECTION ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

OKAY.

AND IF WE DID NOT POSTPONE, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO HAVE THOSE KINDS OF CONVERSATIONS ABOUT, UM, ACTIONS AND SITE PLANNING BETWEEN NOW AND THE COUNCIL HEARING AS WELL? YES, I'M.

IN FACT, ON THE MF FOUR RECOMMENDATION THAT STAFF PROVIDED, WE COULD STILL BUILD A SIX STORY TOWER IF THAT'S WHAT

[00:45:01]

EVERYBODY DECIDED THAT THEY WANTED.

UM, SO REALLY ANY OF THE SITE PLANS THAT HAVE BEEN OUTLAID COULD, UM, BE DONE WITH AFFORDABILITY AND LOCKED AND THE, UM, MFR DESIGNATION.

AND WE ARE AGAIN FINE WITH THE MFR DESIGNATION.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

ALRIGHT, COMMISSIONERS, WE HAVE TWO MORE SPOTS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS, IF NOT I'M COMMISSION FOR MR. TYLER, I HAVE A PROCESS QUESTION.

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

IT WOULD BE, UH, DO WE HAVE THE OPTION TO, UM, DESIGNATE A COMMISSION POSTPONEMENT AS OPPOSED TO NEIGHBORHOOD OR APPLICANT OPTION TO THE COMMISSION, IF YOU SO CHOOSE, DID DESIRE.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER MICHELLE, HER, UH, JUST A QUICK QUESTION FROM STAFF, CAUSE I'M STILL A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED.

UM, WERE THERE, WERE THERE ASSURANCES MADE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD ABOUT A POSTPONEMENT? SO I WAS LOOKING AT MY EMAILS.

UM, I WAS EXPLAINING TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD HOW THE POSTPONEMENT DISCUSSION WOULD HAPPEN AT THE PLANNING COMMISSION HERE EIGHT TONIGHT.

AND I SAID THAT THERE WOULD BE SPEAKERS FOR THE POSTPONEMENT SPEAKERS AGAINST THE POSTPONEMENT AND THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSIONERS WOULD ASK, PROBABLY ASK QUESTIONS AND THEN THEY WOULD VOTE ON THE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST.

I DON'T LOOK, I DON'T SEE IN MY EMAILS THAT I SPECIFICALLY OTHER EVER SAID THE CASE WOULD NOT BE HEARD, BUT I DIDN'T GIVE THE OPTION THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSIONERS COULD DECIDE TO HEAR THE CASE THAT NIGHT SO I COULD SEE HOW THERE COULD BE SOME CONFUSION.

OKAY, SURE.

THANK YOU.

SURE.

COMMISSIONER LADIES ON A, IF I COULD JUST FOLLOW UP WITH THAT, IT'S ALSO A NOTED IN THE MATERIALS THAT THE AGENDA.

OH, I'M SORRY.

WHAT IS NOTED THE PROCESS FOR POST BUMP DISCUSSION POST.

OH.

THAT THE COMMISSION COULD HEAR IT THIS EVENING.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS ACTUALLY FROM SHERRY'S OR WAY THIS I'VE GOT IT RIGHT HERE.

COULD IT WE'RE WE'RE WE'RE UM, SO YOU'RE SAYING YOU GOT A DIFFERENT EMAIL FROM SHERRY.

OKAY.

UH, LET'S ASK YOU, WE NEED TO ASK A QUESTION.

WE HAVE A SPOT FOR IF I'M OUT OF TIME.

I'M HAPPY.

SORRY.

IT'S IT'S FORMALITY AND PROCESS.

SORRY.

SO YES, PLEASE.

WOULD YOU SHARE YOUR EMAIL THAT YOU RECEIVED? SO WE MAY UNDERSTAND YOUR COMMUNICATION.

THANK YOU FOR ASKING.

SO THIS IS AN EMAIL FROM SHERRY.

I SAID, I'M ASKING ABOUT THE POLICE POSTPONEMENT, UM, AND PLEASE SEE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION.

IT IS OUR UNDERSTANDING THAT THE APPLICANT IS AMENABLE TO A TWO WEEK POSTPONEMENT TO THE MAY 24TH PLANNING COMMISSION HERE BECAUSE OF THE APPLICANT IS OPPOSED TO ANY POSTPONEMENT BEYOND MAY 24TH AND THE MAY 10TH PC HEARING.

UM, WELL, LET'S SEE, THESE CASES WILL BE A POSTPONEMENT DISCUSSION AT THE MEETING.

10TH HEARING THE NEIGHBORHOOD WILL PRESENT TO THE PLANNING COMMISSIONERS, THE REASON WHY THEY WANT THE POSTPONEMENT BEYOND MAY 24TH AND THE APPLICANT WILL STATE THE REASONS WHY THEY CANNOT SUPPORT A PP FOR MORE THAN TWO WEEKS AFTER THE DISCUSSION AND QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLANNING COMMISSIONERS, THEY WILL TAKE A VOTE ON THE POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS.

THE DISCUSSION WILL BE LIMITED TO THE POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS AND NOT THE MERITS OF THE CASE.

SO FROM READING THAT WE UNDERSTOOD THAT IT WOULD ONLY BE ABOUT THE POSTPONEMENT AND NOT THE DISCUSSION OR VOTE ON THE ITEM.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, ANY MORE QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONER MITCH TODDLER.

OKAY.

UH, WE HAVE ONE MORE SPOT OR WE CAN, IF A COMMISSIONER WANTS TO MAKE A MOTION, WE CAN MOVE ON TO THAT.

A FINISHER SHEA I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO POSTPONE FOR TWO WEEKS.

DO YOU HAVE A SECOND COMMISSIONER COX? I WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR POSTPONEMENT.

UM, A LOT'S BEEN SAID ALREADY, BUT, UH, IT SEEMS LIKE BOTH SIDES HAVE BEEN AMENABLE FOR THE TWO WEEKS TO WORK THINGS OUT.

AND THERE'S A, UH, PLAN OF DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT CONCEPTS THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, THAT YOU KNOW, TO BE DISCUSSED.

AND, UH, WE ARE UP AGAINST A WALL BECAUSE COUNCIL IS GOING TO BE GETTING READY TO GO, UM, KIND OF HIATUS OVER THE SUMMER.

SO THERE'S A LOT OF WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE BETWEEN NOW AND THEN DEVELOPMENT TAKES A LOT OF WORK ON ALL DIFFERENT SIDES FROM, UM, FROM THE, YOU KNOW, FROM THE TEAM.

THAT'S GOING TO BE LENDING TO THE ARCHITECTS, ENGINEERS, TO THE NEIGHBORS, TO COMMUNITY PEOPLE, TO SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE COME TOGETHER TO MAKE THINGS WORK.

AND, UH, WE KNOW THAT IF TIMING IS OFF AND YOU MISS A DEADLINE THAT COULD SET THINGS, UM, WAY OFF AND COSTS PEOPLE MUCH, YOU KNOW, TIME, MONEY EFFORT.

SO, UH, I THINK TWO WEEKS IS APPROPRIATE.

THANKS.

RIGHT.

UH, COMMISSIONER BEING AGAINST THIS MOTION

[00:50:02]

ANY MORE, WANT TO SPEAK IN FAVOR? UH, COMMISSIONER COX, I JUST WANT TO SPEAK GENERALLY.

UM, I KNOW IT'S BEEN KIND OF A UNWRITTEN CUSTOMARY THING, SO THAT'S COMMISSIONED TO GRANT AT LEAST ONE POSTPONEMENT REQUEST, UH, WHEN A NEIGHBORHOOD REQUESTS IT.

AND I THINK IT'S ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO CONTINUE THAT TRADITION, EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT A FORMAL THING.

AND THAT'S PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT ENCOURAGES DIALOGUE AND COOPERATION BETWEEN DEVELOPERS AND THE NEIGHBORHOODS, UH, EVERYONE KNOWS TIME IS EQUAL TO MONEY.

AND SO IF THE DEVELOPER KNOWS THAT THEY CAN MOVE FORWARD QUICKER, IF THEY GET AGREEMENT FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITHOUT POSTPONEMENTS, THEN THAT ENCOURAGES THAT COOPERATION.

THAT MAY NOT BE THE CASE HERE, BUT IT DOES APPEAR TO BE THE FIRST POSTPONEMENT REQUEST FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

SO JUST FROM THAT ALONE, I THINK THIS COMMISSION SHOULD HONOR IT AND GRANT, UH, AT A, AT A MINIMUM OF TWO WEEKS, A TWO WEEK POSTPONEMENT REQUEST.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY COMMISSIONERS FOUND SNAKE FAR AGAINST BEFORE WE TAKE A VOTE? OH, COMMISSIONING ON IS PALITO.

THANK YOU.

I'D LIKE TO OFFER AN AMENDMENT OR JUST A SPECIFICATION OF DESIGNATING THIS AS A COMMISSIONING POSTPONEMENT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE, JUST THE CONCERN ABOUT ENSURING THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD DOESN'T, UM, USE ONE POSTPONEMENT OR HAVE THEIR POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS NOTED.

IF, UM, IF INDEED THERE WERE PRIOR REQUESTS, THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THE APPLICANT ALSO REQUESTED.

SO I'D LIKE TO JUST MAKE IT NEUTRAL AND NOT WITH THE INTENTION OF DELAYING A CASE, BUT JUST IN FAIRNESS TO THAT COMMUNICATION WITH STAFF, LET'S SEE IF YOU CAN GET A SECOND ON THAT COMMISSIONER MOOSE TODDLER, SECOND THAT, UH, DO YOU WANT THIS? YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER, YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR MOTION ANY FURTHER PERMISSION TO BE HONEST KALITA.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT I, UM, EMPATHIZE WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD FRUSTRATION ABOUT TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE LETTER OF THE LAW ON SOME OF THESE NOTIFICATIONS.

IT IS CONFUSING AND I CERTAINLY UNDERSTOOD MAUREEN MEREDITH'S, UH, EMAIL AS READ TO MEAN THAT THE DISCUSSION ON DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT IS LIMITED TO POSTPONEMENT AND NOT THE MERITS OF THE CASE, BUT THE WAY THAT THAT READS TO A LAY PERSON VERY MUCH LOOKS LIKE THE PUBLIC DISCUSSION IS RELATED TO POSTPONEMENT.

SO EVEN THOUGH THAT'S A LITTLE BIT SEPARATE THAT'S ON TOP OF THAT FRUSTRATION OF HEARING THAT THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A POSTPONEMENT AND THEN BEING DESIGNATED AS THE ONES REQUESTING THE POSTPONEMENT FIRST.

SO JUST IN FAIRNESS TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND TO ENCOURAGE, UM, REALLY HUMAN, HUMAN CENTERED STAFF COMMUNICATIONS WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE DOING THIS BALL IN VOLUNTARY TIME.

UM, I JUST THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD TO, TO DESIGNATE THAT AS THE COMMISSION RECOGNIZING THIS POSTPONE, WE NEED ANY COMMISSIONERS SPEAKING AGAINST COMMISSIONER ANDERSON.

I THINK WE HEARD PRETTY CLEARLY FROM THE APPLICANT THAT THIS WASN'T THEIR INTENT.

THEY WEREN'T LOOKING TO POSTPONE.

THEY WERE SIMPLY AMENABLE TO IT.

AND IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE PUNISHING THE APPLICANT TO A DEGREE JUST BECAUSE THE APPLICANT HASN'T HIRED A LAND USE LOBBYIST TO REPRESENT THEM HERE, WHERE THEY'RE SPENDING ANOTHER A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ON SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS THE INS AND OUTS AND ALL THE SECRETS AND THE WAYS THAT THEY GET THINGS DONE, THEY WERE JUST TRYING TO BE AMENABLE AND AGREEING TO POSTPONEMENT.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE WORDS THEY USE THAT WERE INTERPRETED BY A STAFF MEMBER THEN WERE CLARIFIED AND CLEARED UP.

I'M HEARING THE NEIGHBORHOOD SAY THEY WANT THE POSTPONE WITH THE APPLICANT SAYING, THEY'RE READY TO GO.

NOW THEY'RE NOT LOOKING FOR POSTPONEMENT AND IT'S NOT TOO DIFFICULT TO SEE TWO WEEKS FROM NOW, THE NEIGHBORHOOD'S HERE ASKING FOR A POSTPONEMENT AND THAT JUST DELAYS THIS HOUSING HOUSING DELAYED AS HOUSING DENIED.

LET'S HEAR THIS IN TWO WEEKS AND NOT GIVE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEONE JUST TO POSTPONE IT.

OKAY.

SPEAK IN FAVOR, UH, COMMISSIONER, MR. SELLER, IT'S DENIAL.

UM, I I'M IN FAVOR OF IT BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND IT, IT BEING NEWER TO THE WHOLE PROCESS, IT'S HARD TO JUMP IN AND UNDERSTAND A PROCESS, EVEN WHEN EVERYBODY'S GOT GOOD INTENTION.

MY I'M I'M IN FAVOR OF THE POSTPONEMENT ONLY BECAUSE MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THAT IF WE LIMIT THAT TO TWO WEEKS, WE HEAR THE CASE IN TWO WEEKS, AS WE SAID, WE WOULD, THAT'S NOT GOING TO JEOPARDIZE THE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES THAT THEY HAVE, AND WE CAN GIVE THEM A FAIR HEARING AND THEY CAN STILL GET TO WHERE THEY NEED TO ON TIME.

SO, UM, WE'VE DONE THIS FOR, FOR OTHER FOLKS IN SITUATIONS WHEN THERE'S BEEN MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND THIS IS NOT JEOPARDIZING THE PROJECT.

SO THAT'S WHY I'M IN FAVOR OF IT.

I'M GOING TO SPEAK AGAINST IT.

I MEAN, IF, IF WE HEAR THE CASE IN TWO WEEKS, THE COMMISSION CAN STILL POSTPONE IT BASED UPON, UH, WHATEVER WE HEAR AND WE COULD EVEN TALK, YOU KNOW, SEND THEM BACK FOR MORE DISCUSSION.

BUT, UM, AT THIS POINT, I MEAN, WE, WE ARE, IF WE GET TO WE, IF WE GET TO THE SAME POINT IN TWO WEEKS, KNOWING THAT THEY HAD THAT TIME TO SPEAK, WE, I DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN EVEN GUARANTEE THAT

[00:55:01]

THEY'LL HAVE ANOTHER POSTPONEMENT AT THAT POINT.

YES, IT'S COURTESY.

BUT IF IT BECOMES SOMETHING THAT, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER TRANSPIRES FROM IT, WE STILL DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN GUARANTEE IT.

IT WAS IT'S COURTESY, BUT THE QUESTION IS, HAS A COURTESY BEEN USED NOW OR NOT? AND IF THAT'S UP IN QUESTION, THEN I DON'T KNOW.

WHAT'S WHAT TO GUARANTEE AT THE NEXT TIME.

SO I THINK CONTINUING FORWARD, UM, AND LIKE COMMISSION DECIDE IF WE'RE GOING TO POSTPONE, UH, ONCE A CASE IS HEARD, I THINK IS, IS A SMARTER WAY TO GO.

THANKS.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY, UH, COMMISSIONER JUST WANTED TO SPEAK FOR A COMMISSIONER.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER ZARA WANTS TO SPEAK AGAINST, I JUST WANT TO SAY, DO THINGS.

I THINK ONE, I UNDERSTAND WHAT IS, WHAT IS THE ATTEMPT HERE, BUT I THINK WE'RE SETTING A REALLY BAD PRECEDENT.

WHAT WE'RE TELLING ANY APPLICANT IN THE FUTURE IS IT, YOU SHOULD COME IN AND ALWAYS SAY, NO, WE'RE NOT AMENABLE TO YOUR REQUEST BECAUSE IF YOU SAY, OR FALTER OR SAY FOR A SECOND THAT, OH, I'M ACTUALLY OPEN TO REQUESTS.

WE'LL COME BACK AND SAY, OH NO, THIS WAS NOT A NEIGHBORHOOD REQUEST.

AND SO WE'RE REALLY SETTING A STANDARD HERE WHERE FRANKLY, IF I WAS AN APPLICANT LOOKING AT THIS, I WOULD KNOW, WE SHOULD ALWAYS SAY, NOPE, NOT OPEN TO ANY REQUEST, TAKE IT TO THE COMMISSION AND LET THE COMMISSION SAY THAT THIS WAS INDEED A BJORN NEIGHBORHOOD REQUEST BECAUSE THERE WAS SOME MODELING OF COMMUNICATION.

SO I TRULY THINK, I THINK TRULY THINK, I THINK WE'RE SETTING A VERY BAD PRECEDENT HERE THAT WILL HARM NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE FUTURE WHO MAKE A REQUEST BECAUSE WE'RE SETTING A STANDARD WHERE AN APPLICANT SHOULD ALWAYS GO AHEAD AND SAY, WE OPPOSE THIS RATHER THAN THIS APPLICANT SAYING WE'RE AMENABLE TO THIS AND TRYING TO WORK ON THAT REQUEST.

SO I CANNOT SUPPORT THIS CHANGE IN THE LANGUAGE, EVEN THOUGH I SUPPORT THE REQUEST.

OKAY.

WE DID HAVE ONE OPENING FOR THE IN FAVOR.

UM, ANYBODY WANT TO TAKE THAT? OR I DID HAVE A POINT OF ORDER BEFORE WE MOVED TO A VOTE.

UM, SO WAS THIS AND COMMISSIONER SHAY HELPED ME OUT HERE ON, WAS THIS A SUBSTITUTE? SOUNDS LIKE THIS WAS A SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

OKAY.

WE NEED TO VOTE ON THIS ONE.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UH, COMMISSIONERS, LET'S GO AHEAD AND, UH, START WITH THOSE.

UM, SO THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION WAS TO, UH, MAKE THIS A COMMISSION POSTPONEMENT FOR TWO WEEKS.

IS THAT TWO WEEK DELAY? WE'LL HEAR THIS AT THE NEXT MEETING.

UH, BUT MAKE IT A COMMISSION, NOT A NEIGHBORHOOD POSTPONEMENT.

OKAY.

LET'S GO AHEAD ON THE DICE.

UH, THOSE IN FAVOR.

OKAY.

THOSE, UH, VIRTUALLY IN FAVOR.

OKAY.

LET'S SEE.

LEAVE IT UP JUST FOR A SECOND.

IT'S A LITTLE DIFFICULT WITH THE HYBRID.

UH, AND OKAY.

AND UH, OKAY.

SWITCHING THE, THOSE ON THE DICE AGAINST THIS SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

OKAY.

AND, UM, THOSE ON THE SCREEN AGAINST THE SUBSTITUTE MOTION.

UH, I'M MISSING ONE.

OKAY.

THERE WE GO.

UH, AND COMMISSION.

OKAY.

COMMITTEE SCHNEIDER AND COMMISSIONER MOOSE TALLER STANDING.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SORRY.

THAT TAKES A LONG, IT'S GOTTA MAKE THE NOTES HERE.

SO, UH, ON THAT MOTION FAILS WITH, UM, COMMISSIONERS FLORES.

HEMPEL HOWARD BOATING.

NO, UM, I'M SORRY.

UM, HOWARD COMMISSIONER GOT TO GET THIS RIGHT HERE, UH, TONIGHT.

OKAY.

UH, THOMPSON ANDERSON.

AZHAR VOTING.

NO.

AND IF STAINING WAS COMMISSIONER MOOSE TOLERANCE, SCHNEIDER, THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT FAILS.

LET'S GO TO THE, UH, ANY OTHER SUBSTITUTES OR AMENDMENTS TO THE MAIN MOTION WE FINISHED SPEAKING SPOTS.

WE HAVE NOT.

OKAY.

UH, DO WE HAVE ANY MORE SPEAKERS AS WELL? WE WERE NEXT TO ANYONE WANTS TO SPEAK AGAINST THE MOTION FOR A TWO WEEK NEIGHBORHOOD THAT'S PULLMAN.

OH, GO AHEAD, MR. IS OUR I'LL SUPPORT THIS BECAUSE I DO THINK GUESTS, I THINK, YOU KNOW, WE'RE HEARING FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE A POSTPONEMENT JUST SO THEY CAN COME BACK AND HAVE A CONVERSATION.

AND THE APPLICANT SEEMS AMENABLE TO IT.

AND I APPRECIATE THEM WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ON THIS.

HAVING SAID THAT, UH, YOU KNOW, THAT HAVING GONE, SEEN OTHER FOLKS GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS, THE DAC ELECTRIC PROCESS IS REALLY COMPLEX AND IS VERY TIME SENSITIVE.

IF YOU'RE NOT MEETING YOUR DEADLINES.

THAT MEANS THE APPLICATIONS FALLS SHORT.

I ALSO WANT TO VERY CLEARLY SAY THAT THESE DOES NOT MEAN THAT IF ONE PROJECT DOESN'T GET THE, UH, THE AWARD FROM DTAC, THAT IT COMES TO AUSTIN, IT DOESN'T, IT GOES TO OUR REGION.

SO IF WE LOSE A PROJECT, IT MEANS THE MC AND GO ELSEWHERE.

AND WE'VE HAD YEARS,

[01:00:01]

LIKE A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN WE HAD THREE PROJECTS, WE HAVE ONLY THREE IN OUR REGION, ALL THREE GO TO ROUND ROCK THAT HURTS OUR COMMUNITY.

WHEN WE SEE THOSE PROJECTS FALL APART.

SO GETTING THAT LOW INCOME HOUSING TAX CREDIT FUNDING TO OUR COMMUNITY IS IMPORTANT.

AND I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT SAY THAT.

I FEEL LIKE IF FOLKS TRULY BELIEVE IN THIS AND WANT TO SUPPORT AFFORDABLE HOUSING, THEY SHOULD NOT PETITION TO CHANGE SCORING CRITERIA SO THAT OUR COMMUNITY CAN LOSE FUNDING.

AND I HOPE THAT'S SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE HERE, INCLUDING COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN REALIZE THIS IS IMPORTANT.

GETTING THIS FUNDING HERE IS IMPORTANT.

THIS IS FEDERAL FUNDING THAT CAN EITHER COME TO US OR GO OUT OF OUR COMMUNITY.

AND SO WE REALLY SHOULD NOT BE JEOPARDIZING THESE PROJECTS, WHETHER IT'S GOING THROUGH DTAC THROUGH THE SCORING CRITERIA AND SEEING THAT THAT SHOULD BE CHANGED OR THROUGH OTHER MEANS.

BUT AGAIN, I SUPPORT ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORT AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN OUR COMMUNITY.

THANK YOU ALL.

OKAY.

UM, COMMISSIONER'S READY TO VOTE ON THE MOTION BY COMMISSIONER SHAY SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER COX, UH, TO GIVE A TWO WEEK NEIGHBORHOOD POSTPONEMENT.

UM, IT'S GOING TO TAKE A VOTE, UH, START WITH THE DYES.

SORRY.

IS THERE ANOTHER SLOT TO SPEAK TO THE ORIGINAL MOTION? YES, THERE IS.

HE'S SPEAKING FOR AND AGAINST FOR AGAINST I'M SPEAKING NEUTRALLY.

OKAY.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY VERY QUICKLY THAT I, MY INTENTION WAS NOT AT ALL TO, UH, DELAY THIS PROJECT.

UM, AND I WON'T SPEAK TO THE MERITS, BUT, UH, ON THE PROCESS POINT, I JUST ALSO WANT TO SAY, I THINK IT'S, IT'S NOT HEALTHY PRECEDENT TO, UM, FOR STAFF TO ASSIGN A REQUEST TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHEN THEY ARE UNDER THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE APPLICANT HAS ALREADY BEEN REQUESTED THE POSTPONEMENT.

SO I DO VERY MUCH UNDERSTOOD STAND THAT THE APPLICANT IS READY TO MOVE FORWARD, DOES NOT WANT TO POSTPONE AND, AND MAYBE FROM THE GET-GO WAS TRYING TO JUST OFFER TO BE OKAY WITH IT.

BUT WHAT WAS COMMUNICATED TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD WAS THAT THERE WAS A REQUEST.

SO THAT'S, THAT'S WHAT I JUST WANTED.

I WANT STAFF TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE COMMUNICATIONS, SO THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN, BUT I'M VERY MUCH NEUTRAL CAUSE I WANT TO SEE THIS PROJECT MOVE FORWARD AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A VOTE, UH, FOR THE TWO WEEK NEIGHBORHOOD POSTPONEMENT.

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

OKAY.

UH, THERE'S ON THE DYESS AGAINST VOTING NEUTRAL ABSTAINING.

OKAY.

AND OKAY.

LET ME MOVE TO THE, UH, LET'S START WITH THOSE IN FAVOR, UH, ON THE VIRTUALLY.

OKAY.

AND DOES AGAINST THE MOTION AND THOSE VOTING TIP STAIN.

OKAY.

SO THAT PASSES, UH, 11 0 2.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE'LL HAVE THAT ONE BACK HERE IN TWO WEEKS.

ALL

[B1. Rezoning: C14-2022-0003 - Clayton Lane Residences, District 4]

RIGHT.

MOVING ON, UH, TO ITEM B ONE, UH, WE'LL HEAR FROM STEPH, IF THEY'RE READY.

GOOD EVENING.

HEATHER CHAFFIN HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

THIS IS CASE C 14 20 22 0 0 0 3 CLAYTON LANE RESIDENCES.

THIS HAS BEEN BEFORE THE PERMISSION BEFORE REQUESTING TO GO FROM G R N U C O M P T G R E Z N E.

IT'S JUST UNDER TWO ACRES AT 1120 AND 1124 CLINTON LANE.

EXCUSE ME.

AND THE APPLICANT IS OKAY WITH, UH, KEEPING THE EXISTING CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS OF PROHIBITED AND CONDITIONAL ABUSES.

THE PROPERTY CURRENTLY HAS APPROXIMATELY 15 OR 16, TWO BEDROOM APARTMENTS.

AND THERE, THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING A REZONING TO ELABORATE DEVELOPING THE PROPERTY WITH 52 BEDROOM APARTMENTS AND TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY FIVE, ONE BEDROOM APARTMENTS.

THERE WAS CONCERN ABOUT DISPLACEMENT AND NOTIFICATION TO RESIDENTS SINCE A NOTIFICATION GOES TO PROPERTY AND OWNER AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE UTILITY, UH, ACCOUNTS.

AND, UM, THAT'S JUST THE SHORT BACKGROUND.

I THINK THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN FAVOR AND AN OPPOSITION AVAILABLE TO SPEAK AND ALSO THE APP WITH AN UPDATE ON ANY OUTREACH.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, JERRY WILL.

AND I'LL HEAR
