MY NAME IS KIMERY DUDE.

I'M THE FOUNDER OF THE EXPEDITION SCHOOL.

I GREW UP HERE IN AUSTIN AND IT'S MY FIRST TIME IN THIS BUILDING AND SHOCKING HOW MUCH HAS DEVELOPED HERE IN THIS AREA.

I WANTED TO JUST SAY WHAT WE'RE UP TO AND KEEP YOU ABREAST OF THE WORK THAT WE'RE DOING, BECAUSE I BELIEVE AS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER AND MAKING IT THROUGH COVID, I'M JUST VERY HAPPY TO SEE EVERYBODY IN PERSON.

AND I'M ALSO HAPPY TO BE HERE AS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER SURVIVING THROUGH COVID.

WE'VE BEEN INCREDIBLY BUSY THIS SUMMER.

WE HAVE HOSTED THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS FOR A GROUP OF INTELLECTUALLY DEVELOPMENTALLY DISABLED INDIVIDUALS, AND IT'S A NONPROFIT CALLED THE AUSTIN VENTURES.

AND SO WE CREATED A SPECIAL OLYMPICS FOR THEM ABOUT THREE WEEKS AGO, WHERE THEY COMPETED.

WE ARE CONTINUING HAVING FREE PEDALS FOR THE IDD GROUPS AFOREMENTIONED, AND WE'RE WORKING WITH DOWN-HOME RANCH, WHO ALSO SPECIALIZES IN WORK WITH INDIVIDUALS WITH IDD.

AND THESE ARE FREE OUTDOOR PROGRAMS THAT WE'RE OFFERING WITH THE EXPEDITION SCHOOL.

WE ARE A LICENSED CONCESSION WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT, WHICH WE'RE VERY PROUD OF, TOOK ME 16 YEARS TO GET THAT CONCESSION CONTRACT.

SO HARD WORK DOES PAY OFF.

AND IN THAT LOCATION RIGHT NOW, WE'RE SERVING ABOUT A THOUSAND INDIVIDUALS EVERY TWO WEEKS AND INCLUDING OFFERING THOSE FREE PADDLE PROGRAMS FOR THE ADAPTIVE POPULATIONS.

UH, WE WERE JUST AWARDED THE TOP TRAINING PROVIDER FOR THE FIFTH YEAR IN A ROW BY THE AMERICAN RED CROSS.

AND OVER 200 LIVES HAVE BEEN SAVED BY OUR STUDENTS.

AND AGAIN, JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU ALL FOR, FOR HEARING ABOUT OUR SMALL BUSINESS AND WHAT WE'RE UP TO.

WE ARE EXCITED TO CONTINUE THE WORK AND WE ARE HOPING FOR THAT LONG-TERM CONTRACT WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT TO BUILD A WORLD-CLASS ADAPTIVE DOCK, UM, RIGHT BEHIND WHERE WE'RE LOCATED IN THE LAGOON OF, OF FIESTA GARDENS.

SO HOPEFULLY YOU'LL BE HEARING MORE FROM US SOON.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK AND NEXT STEP WE HAVE ADAM'S

[00:05:12]

HI THERE.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

I AM ADAM, SHEDLOSKI THE ASSISTANT DIRECTOR WITH THE EXPEDITION SCHOOL, AND I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU MORE OF A KIND OF PRESENT DAY VIEW OF WHAT WE JUST ACCOMPLISHED AT THE EXPEDITION SCHOOL.

UH, WE TOOK PART IN THE LAST OF FOUR WILD WEDNESDAYS THAT THE WATERLOO GREENWAY WAS PUTTING ON FOR THE COMMUNITY DOWN AT THE, THE NEWLY RENOVATED AND OPEN WATERLOO GREENWAY, WHICH WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

AND THE FOCUS TODAY WAS ON ECOLOGY.

AND SO WE, WITH AS MANY YOUNG AND AMBITIOUS MINDS AS WE COULD MUSTER, WE, WE WERE MAKING SEA BALLS WITH A LOT OF THE YOUTH OF AUSTIN, AND THEY WERE SO EXCITED TO LEARN ABOUT THE BUTTERFLIES AND THE DRAGONFLIES AND THE POLLINATORS BOSTON AND, AND HELP US PROMOTE THOSE POLLINATORS AND A REBOUND IN THEIR POPULATIONS BY CREATING SEATBELTS AND MUCH TO THEIR PARENTS SHOULD RAN.

THESE KIDS WERE NOW SUPER MUDDY AND DIRTY, AND WE'RE GOING HOME WITH LITTLE ZIPLOC BAGS FULL OF, OF BUTTERFLY, WEED SEEDS AND MILKWEED SEEDS, UM, AT OUR BOAT RAMP AT THE FESTIVAL BEACH BOAT RAMP.

IT'S QUITE INTERESTING TO SEE JUST THE EFFECTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF AUSTIN AND THE INCREDIBLE IMPACT THAT THE CLIMATE CRISIS IS HAVING ON OUR RIVER.

UM, WITH THE, AS WE ALL KNOW THAT THE ZEBRA MUSSEL POPULATION IS RAMPANT.

AND WITH THAT, NOW THAT THE CYANOBACTERIA POPULATIONS ARE EVERYWHERE.

THEY'RE JUST BIG GLOBS OF CYANOBACTERIA ALONG THESE PUBLIC ASSETS WAYS, BUT ALSO JUST IN THE KIND OF STAGNANT WATERS ALONG THE SHORELINE.

AND THEN THE OTHER THING, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS HYDRILLA AT FIRST, I THOUGHT THE HYDRILLA HAD MADE IT COME BACK, BUT IT'S THE KABBALAH PLANT, WHICH IS VERY SIMILAR.

IT'S ANOTHER, ANOTHER PLANT THAT'S RELEASED FROM AQUARIUM OWNERS, BUT THIS KABBALAH IS EVERYWHERE.

AND IT'S JUST FASCINATING WHEN YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PADDLE ALONG THE RIVER, JUST TO SEE THE EFFECTS OF ALL OF THE FLUENT WATER GOING INTO THE END OF THE RIVER AND, YOU KNOW, OUR LACK OF RECENT RAINFALL AND JUST HOTTER THAN EVER TEMPERATURE.

SO I JUST WANTED EVERYONE TO KNOW WE ARE CONTINUING OUR WORK TO INSPIRE KIDS OF AUSTIN TO, TO BE MORE COMMITTED TO THEIR ENVIRONMENT AND THEIR COMMUNITY AND, AND LEAD CLEANUPS.

AND TALK ABOUT THE ECOLOGY OF THANK YOU, ADAM.

APPRECIATE IT.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT'S IT FOR THE SPEAKERS? CORRECT.

ALRIGHT.

UM, LET'S GO

[1. Approval the minutes of the Environmental Commission Regular Meeting on July 6, 2022]

ON TO ITEM ONE.

UM, REVIEW OF THE MINUTES FROM THE LAST MEETING, WHICH WAS JULY 6TH, HAS EVERYONE HAD A CHANCE TO REVIEW THOSE NICKELS? THANK YOU.

UH, ALL RIGHT.

UM, MOTION TO APPROVE THE MINUTES.

IS THERE A SECOND? SECOND? ALL RIGHT.

UM, ALTHOUGH I'M GOING TO ABSTAIN SINCE I WASN'T AT THAT MEETING, BUT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF APPROVING THE MINUTES, RAISE YOUR HAND OR SAY AYE.

ALL RIGHT.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S EIGHT.

OH, WITH ONE ABSTENTION.

OH, NO QUESTION.

YOU'RE HERE.

DID YOU? OH, NINE, NINE.

OH, NO.

SORRY.

UH, ALL RIGHT.

LET'S KEEP CRANKING.

UM,

[2. Update on Environmental Commission Annual Report]

NEXT UP IS A NUMBER TWO, WHICH IS AN UPDATE ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMISSION ANNUAL REPORT.

UM, BY ME, UM, IN THE BACKUP, UH, WE PROVIDED THE, THE ANNUAL REPORT, UM, THAT WE HAVE TO DO EVERY YEAR.

UM, I, I, AND THANK YOU COMMISSIONERS, UM, FOR SOME IDEAS ON PRIORITIES MOVING FORWARD.

UM, I TRIED TO SYNTHESIZE THAT BASED ON WHAT OUR PRIORITIES WERE FOR THIS LAST YEAR.

UM, AND SOME OF, SOME OF THE IDEAS FROM THIS COMING YEAR, UM, IT'S MAYBE PAGE SEVEN AND EIGHT OF THE DOCUMENT, I THINK.

UH, YOU'LL SEE.

PRIORITY-WISE, IT'S A COUPLE OF PAGES, SO IT'LL BE HARD TO, TO MAKE EVERYTHING A PRIORITY, BUT, UM, WE HAVE A RETREAT COMING UP.

UM, HOPEFULLY LATER THIS MONTH, I THINK IT'S STILL A LITTLE BIT TENTATIVE ON THE DATE.

UM, BUT ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT I'D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT AT THE RETREAT IS, UM, MAYBE SOME, SOME, UH, SOME FEEDBACK ON, ON RANKING THESE, UM, ON, YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING CAN'T BE A PRIORITY IF WE'VE GOT 25 OF THEM.

SO, UM, BE THINKING ABOUT THAT, UM, FOR COMMISSIONERS THAT DID PROVIDE ME SOME IDEAS AND FEEDBACK, UM, I'D ALSO BE EXCITED TO HEAR ON, ON HOW IF I HIT THE TARGET, UH, ON, ON, ON WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR, UM, AND, OR REFINING IT.

UM,

[00:10:01]

SO, UM, NOT MUCH OF AN UPDATE, UH, ON THAT QUITE YET, BUT I'D LIKE TO HAVE A DIALOGUE ABOUT IT, UM, AT THE RETREAT, WHICH IS HOPEFULLY LIKE THIS MONTH, MAYBE, MAYBE IN SEPTEMBER.

UM, AND THEN OF COURSE THE, IN THAT BACKUP IS A SUMMARY OF ALL THE MOTIONS THAT WE'VE REVIEWED AND SUCH.

SO IT'S A GOOD SNAPSHOT IN TIME.

UH, ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR THOUGHTS? YEAH.

I JUST WANT TO CONFIRM IT.

I THINK WE'RE CONFIRMED FOR AUGUST 31ST.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO PUT IT DOWN IN INK.

UH, AND I THINK WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO DO BOTH A HYBRID IF, IF POSSIBLE.

SO SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE CAN COME, YOU CAN COME AND IF, IF NOT, UH, YOU CAN STILL PARTICIPATE COMMISSIONERS ANY IDEAS OR, UH, DISCUSSION ON, ON ITEM TWO FOR NOW.

ALRIGHT, WELL THAT, THAT JUST CAUSE YOU'RE SAVING YOUR IDEAS AND DISCUSSION FOR THE RETREAT.

I UNDERSTAND.

AND I APPRECIATE THAT.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

MOVING ON TO PUBLIC HEARINGS, UH,

[3. Name: Bull Creek PUD Amendment #3, Case No. C814-2009-0139.03]

ITEM NUMBER THREE, WHICH IS THE BULL CREEK PUD AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE, CASE NUMBER C 8 1 4 DASH 2009 DASH 0 1 3 9 0 3, UH, LOCATIONS AT 53 0 5 5454 0 4 54 0 8 55 0 5.

UM, PARADOX COVE AND 49 0 9 49, 15 AND A HALF 49 29, FM 2222.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE'VE GOT SOME STAFF LESLIE TO, UH, TO GIVE US A BRIEFING, PLEASE.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

I'M GLAD YOU READ OUT THE ADDRESS BECAUSE I WAS ALSO GOING TO DO IT, BUT THERE'S A WHOLE HOUSE WITH IT.

SO GOOD EVENING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS LESLIE LILLY.

I AM AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAM COORDINATOR WITH WATERSHED PROTECTION, AND TONIGHT I'M GOING TO BE PRESENTING ON AN AMENDMENT TO THE BULL CREEK, UH, PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT.

UM, AND YOU'VE ALREADY HEARD THE CASE NUMBER AND THE EIGHT ADDRESSES ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROPERTY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UM, SO BEFORE I GET INTO THE DETAILS OF THIS PARTICULAR PART AMENDMENT, I WANT TO PROVIDE SOME CONTEXT AND A LENS THAT OUR STAFF USES TO APPROVE AND CONCEIVE OF LIKE HOW TO REVIEW THIS AMENDMENT AND OTHER KINDS OF PET AMENDMENTS.

SO A PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT, UM, FOR, UH, FOR A DEFINITION OF IT AS A TYPE OF SITE DEVELOPMENT AND REGULATORY PROCESS ESTABLISHED BY CITY ORDINANCE FOR ATTRACTIVE LAND.

UM, OH, YES.

SLIDE PLEASE.

THE NEXT ONE.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO THE, THE PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT IS A REGULATORY MECHANISM THAT ALLOWS FOR PROJECTS THAT ARE SUPERIOR TO BE APPROVED, UM, THAT WOULD OTHERWISE NOT BE ALLOWABLE UNDER CURRENT REVIEW PROCESS AND, UH, UNDER A CURRENT CODE AND CRITERIA.

UM, SO PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT, THEY CONCEIVE OF A SUPERIOR ELEMENTS THAT ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT IS REQUIRED.

UM, BUT THERE MIGHT BE MODIFICATIONS INCORPORATED WITHIN THEM TO CURRENT CODE.

UH, SO THIS, THIS IS A MECHANISM TO ALLOW FOR THESE KINDS OF SPECIAL PROJECTS TO OCCUR.

UM, THE PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT OR POD THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT IS A BULL CREEK AND IT WAS ESTABLISHED AND APPROVED IN 2009.

AND THIS ONE'S PRETTY SPECIAL BECAUSE IT WAS DESERT.

SO IT'S DESIGNATING THE TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT ALLOWED FOR SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY.

AND I WANT TO MAKE NOTE OF THAT BECAUSE A PART OF THE AMENDMENT BEING PROPOSED IS A NEW, UM, USE, WHICH IS A CIVIC USE OR CULTURAL USE FOR THE PURPOSE OF AN ART MUSEUM FOR THE PROPERTY TO BE USED FOR AN ART MUSEUM TO MEMORIALIZE THE LEGACY OF THE CURRENT PROPERTY OWNER, MR. BOOTH.

UH, SO THAT SHIFT IN, IN, UM, IN USE TYPE IS A SIGNIFICANT THING THAT IS CONSIDERED IN THIS AMENDMENT, BECAUSE FROM THAT A LOT OF DIFFERENT OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE LAND USE PLAN ARE BEING PROPOSED.

UM, ADDITIONALLY WITH THAT, UH, WITH THAT PROPOSED USE TYPE, THERE IS A VERY EXTENSIVE AND LARGE RESTORATION PLAN THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS AMENDMENT.

SO THERE'S THESE TWO ELEMENTS, THE USE TYPE THAT IS BEING INCLUDED, AND THEN THIS VERY LARGE RESTORATION PLAN THAT IS, YOU KNOW, ABOUT, YOU KNOW, A HUNDRED PERCENT MORE THAN WHAT WAS APPROVED IN THE ORIGINAL POD.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, SO THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED, UH, IN THE FULL PURPOSE JURISDICTION.

IT IS NOT IN THE RECHARGE OR CONTRIBUTING ZONE OF THEIR, OF THE EDWARDS AQUIFER, NEXT SLIDE.

AND THE SITE IS AT THE

[00:15:01]

CONFLUENCE OF BULL CREEK AND LAKE AUSTIN.

UM, AND IT IS IN BOTH OF THE WATERSHEDS.

THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE PROPERTY IS IN THE BULL CREEK WATERSHED AND THE SOUTHERN, THE MAJORITY OF THE SOUTHERN PORTION IS IN THE LAKE AUSTIN WATERSHED.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, SO THERE'S A LOT OF, UH, UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES ON THIS PROPERTY AND THE, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A LOT THAT WE HAD TO CONSIDER IN THIS PROPOSED AMENDMENT.

UM, A LOT OF THOSE FEATURES ARE SHOWN HERE, UM, INCLUDING TWO DIFFERENT HEIGHTS, TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES.

YOU CAN SEE IN THE UPPER, UH, THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE PROPERTY TO, UH, REM ROCK CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES.

AND THEN ALONG THE SHORELINE, THERE IS A FRINGE WETLAND CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURE, WHICH IS MAINLY COMPRISED OF VERY LARGE, UH, CYPRESS TREES.

UM, AND THEN LASTLY FOR THE CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES, THERE IS AN EMERGENT WETLAND THAT IS KIND OF IN THE SOUTHWESTERN PORTION OF THE PROPERTY AND HAS THAT STANDARD HUNDRED AND 50 FOOT SETBACK, UM, THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF THE PROPERTY, AS YOU CAN SEE HERE AND IN HISTORIC PHOTO HISTORIC AREAS GOING BACK, UM, AS FAR AS YOU CAN, THAT THE SOUTHERN PORTION HAS BEEN, IS DOMINATED BY BERMUDA GRASS AND HAS BEEN MAINTAINED, UM, TO THAT CONDITION PRIMARILY LIKE THAT'S THE HISTORY OF IT.

UM, THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF A HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD, PLAIN THAT IS DELINEATED WITH THE BLACK LINE.

SO YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE FLOOD PLAIN EXISTS ON THE SITE.

AND THEN LASTLY, AND I THINK THIS IS ALWAYS INTERESTING ALONG, YOU KNOW, THE HISTORIC, UH, THE NATURAL HISTORY OF SITES ALONG THESE WATERWAYS IS THE SOUTHWESTERN, UM, SHORELINE WAS IMPOUNDED SOMETIME BETWEEN 1940 AND 1958.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO THIS IS A HISTORICAL AREA, UH, AERIAL FROM 1940, SHOWING THE DIFFERENT GEOGRAPHY, UM, THAT EXISTED BEFORE THE IMPOUNDMENT OF THE SHORELINE AND HOW MUCH OF THE LAND WAS ACTUALLY INUNDATED.

AND THAT, AND I WANT SHOW THIS HISTORICAL AERIAL BECAUSE THAT CONTRIBUTES TO SOME OF THE PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE LAND USE PLAN AND THE RESTORATION PLAN, UM, WHICH ARE BEING BROUGHT FORWARD BY THE APPLICANT.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO IN YOUR BACKUP AND SHOWN HERE IS THE ORIGINAL APPROVED LAND USE PLAN.

AND THIS LAND USE PLAN IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL USE TYPE.

UM, WHAT YOU CAN SEE IN THIS LAND USE PLAN IS, YOU KNOW, THE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE THAT'S KIND OF IN THE CENTER.

UH, YOU CAN SEE A LARGE FENCE ALONG THE EASTERN EDGE OF THE PROPERTY.

THAT'S CLOSE TO 20 TO 22.

UM, AND THEN I WANT TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO WHAT MAYBE IS HARDER TO DISTINGUISH ON THIS POWERPOINT, BUT YOU COULD SEE IN THE BACKUP THESE THREE POLYGONS THAT REPRESENTS WHAT WAS APPROVED AS LIKE THREE ACRES OF MIGRATORY WATERFOWL HABITAT.

SO THESE THREE, YOU KNOW, UM, NOT FULLY DESIGNED KIND OF, YOU KNOW, PLACED CONCEPTUAL MIGRATORY WATERFALL HABITAT THAT ARE IDENTIFIED AS ABOUT THREE ACRES.

AND THEN THE RESTORATION PLAN AS APPROVED IN THE ORIGINAL PLOT IS MORE NARRATIVE INFORMED.

IT DOESN'T HAVE LIKE A VISUAL MAP LIKE THE LAND USE PLAN HAS.

UM, AND THAT ALSO, UM, PROVIDES FOR AN ADDITIONAL THREE ACRES OF UPLAND RESTORATION.

UH, AND I WANT TO MAKE NOTE OF THAT BECAUSE THE RESTORATION PLAN THAT IS PROVIDED THAT'S BEING PROPOSED, UH, HAS QUITE A BIT MORE, UM, UPLAND RESTORATION.

SO NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO THIS IS THE NEW EXHIBIT C LAND USE PLAN BEING PROPOSED IN THIS AMENDMENT.

AND SOME OF THE THINGS THAT YOU CAN SEE OUR NEW, UH, PATHWAYS, UH, THROUGH THE SITE, NEW WALKWAYS, UM, AND OTHER KINDS OF BUILDINGS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE FUTURE CIVIC USE FOR THIS PROPERTY.

AND THEN ADDITIONALLY, ONE OF THE BIGGEST KIND OF LAND USE CHANGES INCLUDES, UM, A RECONFIGURATION OF THE CONSTRUCTED WETLAND.

SO THE SQUIGGLY LINE ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE, I MEAN ON THE SOUTHWESTERN SIDE OF THE PROPERTY IS THE HABITAT POND.

UM, THAT REPRESENTS WHAT WOULD BE, WHAT WOULD HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN THE MIGRATORY WATERFOWL HABITAT, UM, AND IN ITS CONSTRUCTION, THE CUT FROM THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE POND WOULD BE THEN USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS BERM ALONG THE SOUTHEAST PORTION OF THIS, THE SOUTHERN SECTION OF THE PROPERTY.

SO THIS RECONFIGURATION, UM, IS, YOU KNOW, A BIG,

[00:20:01]

UH, CHANGE OF LAND USE PLAN, BUT ALSO, UM, YOU KNOW, ALIGNS WITH HOW THE ORIGINAL GEOGRAPHY OF THE SHORELINE MIGHT HAVE BEEN BEFORE THE IMPOUNDING OF, OF THIS, THIS PROPERTY.

OKAY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, SO WHERE THERE WAS KIND OF JUST MORE OF A NARRATIVE RESTORATION PLAN BEFORE THERE IS THE PROPOSED A RESTORATION PLAN EXHIBIT F HERE, AND IT'S VERY DETAILED AND ALONG THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE LIST, ALL OF THE DIFFERENT LANDSCAPE TYPES, UH, PROPOSED, INCLUDING THE VEGETATION, THE NUMBER OF PLANTINGS AND OTHER DETAILS ASSOCIATED WITH, UM, THE PROPOSED RESTORATION OF THIS PLAN.

UM, SO OVERALL THE INCREASE IN A WETLAND, UM, RESTORATION IS FROM THREE ACRES TO A LITTLE, LIKE A LITTLE MORE THAN THREE AND A HALF ACRES.

AND THE PROPOSED UPLAND RESTORATION IS THREE ACRES TO OVER NINE ACRES.

AND THE UPLAND RESTORATION INCLUDES BOTH WOODLAND HABITAT TYPES.

AND THEN ALSO, UH, MEADOWS THAT WOULD BE FREE OF LIKE, WHAT DO YOU PLANT ENCROACHMENT? AND SO HAVING THESE DIFFERENT HABITAT TYPES ACROSS, UH, ACROSS THE PROPERTY.

OKAY, NEXT SLIDE.

SO WITH, UH, WITH THIS AMENDMENT, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF CODE MODIFICATIONS BEING REQUESTED, FIVE OF WHICH ARE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES.

AND THE FIRST TWO ARE, UH, CODE MODIFICATIONS REQUESTED FOR SECTION 25, 8, 3 41 AND 3 42, WHICH DEAL WITH, UM, ALLOWANCES AND CUT AND FELL THE PROPOSED, UH, AMENDMENT REQUESTS TO, UH, INCREASE THE ALLOWABLE, CUT AND FILL UP TO EIGHT FEET TO ALLOW FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HABITAT POND AND THE BERM.

NOW, I THINK, UM, THE PROPOSED AND APPROVED, UM, MIGRATORY WATERFOWL, UH, PIECES WOULD HAVE REQUIRED CUT AND FILL POTENTIALLY IN EXCESS OF FOUR FEET AS WELL.

UM, SO THIS PARTICULAR CODE MODIFICATION, IN SOME WAYS, YOU KNOW, MIGHT HAVE COME TO FRUITION, IF THOSE, UH, MIGRATORY WATERFOWL FEATURES HAD BEEN CONSTRUCTED, BUT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN CONSTRUCTED.

AND SO THEY'VE BEEN RECONFIGURED IN THIS WAY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, THE OTHER THREE CODE MODIFICATIONS, UM, DEAL WITH ALLOWING CERTAIN DEVELOPMENT WITHIN RESTRICTED AREAS.

SO SECTION, UH, TWENTY-FIVE EIGHT TO 81 ALLOWS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE FOLLOWING ITEMS WITHIN THE CRITICAL WATER QUALITY ZONE.

SO THAT INCLUDES THE HABITAT POND, RIPARIAN HABITAT, WETLAND PLANTING EXCLOSURES EXISTING AND PROPOSED GUEST HOUSE, THE CARETAKER RESIDENTS, PERVIOUS AND IMPERVIOUS WALKWAYS, LOW WATER CROSSINGS SITE, ELECTRICAL WEAR SYSTEMS AND ARTWORK AND ITS SUPPORTING FOUNDATIONS.

UM, THIS ALSO ALLOWS FOR THE COTTON FILL, UH, SHOWN IN EXHIBIT J TO BE ALLOWABLE WITHIN THE CRITICAL WATER QUALITY ZONE.

THE SECOND OF THESE TYPES OF CODE MODIFICATIONS ARE TWO SECTION 25 TO 5 51 B3, WHICH SPECIFICALLY DEALS WITH LAKE AUSTIN.

AND IT IS TO ALLOW THE ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS WITHIN THE SETBACK AREA, WHICH INCLUDE THE HABITAT POND AND ARTWORK AND ITS SUPPORTING FOUNDATIONS.

AND THEN LASTLY, THE FIFTH CODE MODIFICATION EXPANDS UPON WHAT IS ALREADY IN EXISTING CODE MODIFICATION IN THE APPROVED POD TO SECTION TO PART FIVE SECTION, UM, SECTION D 11, WHICH ALLOWS FOR, UH, WHICH ALLOWS FOR IMPROVEMENTS WITHIN THE 150 FOOT SETBACK OF THE WETLANDS CF.

SO THAT'S, UH, MODIFYING, UH, 25 8 2 81 AND 25 8 2 82.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO WITH THESE PROPOSED CODE MODIFICATIONS, THERE ARE ALSO ENVIRONMENTAL SUPERIORITY ITEMS THAT, UM, THE APPLICANT IS COMMITTING TO PROVIDE FOR THIS PROJECT.

UM, THERE'S 11 LISTED HERE.

SO THE FIRST ONE IS THAT NEW BUILDINGS WILL ACHIEVE TWO STAR OR GREATER A RATING UNDER THE GREEN ENERGY BUILDING PROGRAM.

AND THOSE ARE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO THE NEW PROPOSED BUILDINGS AS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CIVIC USE THE FUTURE CIVIC USE.

UM, NUMBER TWO, THE OPEN SPACE WILL CONTINUE TO EXCEED 50% EVEN IF THE FUTURE CIVIC USE, YOU KNOW,

[00:25:01]

EVEN AT THE TIME OF FUTURE CIVIC USE CHANGED, UH, A HUNDRED PERCENT OF WATER QUALITY TREATMENT FOR NEW AND PERVIOUS COVER ON THE BUILDINGS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CIVIC USE WILL BE TREATED WITH GREEN STORM WATER INFRASTRUCTURE, UM, THE PROPERTY, UH, AND THE APPLICANT ARE COMMITTING TO PRESERVE A HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE HERITAGE TREES, 75% OF PROTECTED TREES AND 75% OF ALL NATIVE TREES REGARDLESS OF SIZE.

UM, THE APPLICANT IS ALSO COMMITTING TO IMPROVE AND RESTORE THE ENTIRE WETLAND CF SETBACK AND NOT HIS, UM, 1.2 ACRES, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE CALCULATION OF 12 AND A LITTLE OVER 12 AND A HALF ACRES OF RESTORATION SITE-WIDE.

AND THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF A BREAKDOWN HERE ON THE TYPES OF WOODLAND HABITAT, PRAIRIE GRASSLAND, AND THEN WETLAND AND RIPARIAN HABITAT TYPES.

UM, ALL TREES THAT ARE INCORPORATED INTO THE RESTORATION WILL BE SOURCED WITHIN 300 MILES AND NOT JUST CONSIDERED DATA TO TEXAS OR AUSTIN, BUT CONSIDERED NATIVE TO THE ASSOCIATED, UH, EDWARDS PLATEAU ECO REGION.

UH, 50% OF THE NEW WALKWAYS WILL BE CONSTRUCTED FROM POROUS PAVEMENT.

A HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE IRRIGATION WATER WILL BE AN ALTERNATIVE WATER SOURCE FROM LIKE AUSTIN THROUGH A CONTRACT WITH LCRA.

AND THEN 1.2 ACRES OF, UM, TURF AND LAWN AROUND, UH, THE HOUSE WILL BE CONVERTED TO NATIVE PLANTINGS.

AND THEN LASTLY, THE, UM, THE APPLICANT COMMITS TO ENHANCING THE DARK SKY ORDINANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NOTE ADDED IN THE REDLINED, UH, POD.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO THERE ARE OTHER ELEMENTS OF THIS POD REVISION THAT ARE NEITHER FORMAL CODE MODIFICATIONS NOR, YOU KNOW, UH, FORMAL SUPERIORITY ITEMS, BUT ARE, YOU KNOW, CERTAINLY A PART OF THE CONSIDERATION DURING THE REVIEW OF THIS AMENDMENT.

AND THAT INCLUDES, UM, A CHANGE IN IMPERVIOUS COVER FROM 15 TO 20%.

SO THE BULL CREEK AND THE LAKE AUSTIN WATERSHEDS ARE WATER SUPPLY SUBURBAN, AND FOR A SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL, THE ALLOWABLE IMPERVIOUS COVER IS 30%.

HOWEVER, THE COMMERCIAL IMPERVIOUS COVERS 40%.

SO 20% IS STILL BELOW BOTH THE RESIDENTIAL AND THE COMMERCIAL ALLOWANCES FOR THIS REGULATORY WATERSHED TYPE.

UM, ADDITIONALLY, THE CHANGE IN, UH, USE FROM SINGLE FAMILY, RESIDENTIAL TO CIVIC USE WILL, UM, INCREASE THE CRITICAL WATER QUALITY ZONE FROM 75 FEET TO A HUNDRED FEET INCREASING THE AREA OF THE PROPERTY THAT IS UNDER MORE STRICT DEVELOPMENTAL REGULATIONS.

UM, THE CHANGES TO CONFIGURE THE MIGRATORY WATERFALL FEATURE WE'VE ALREADY DISCUSSED IN, UH, LOOKING AT THE TWO DIFFERENT LAND, UM, UH, LAND USE EXHIBITS.

UH, ALSO IF YOU'VE LOOKED CLOSELY AT THE RESTORATION PLAN, YOU MAY HAVE SEEN SOME RAIN GARDENS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BERM, AND THEN ALSO THE ROYAL KIND OF IN THE CENTER OF THE, UH, DRAINAGE AREA THAT THE, UH, THE DRAINAGE FEATURE THAT GOES THROUGH THE SITE AND THOSE RAIN GARDENS ARE NOT, UH, FOR THE PURPOSE OF TREATING AND PERVIOUS COVER AND THEY'RE NOT REQUIRED.

THEY'RE JUST A PART OF IMPROVING DRAINAGE.

UM, FOR THAT, UH, FEATURE.

UM, THE CHANGE IN CIVIC USE FROM SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL TO, YOU KNOW, TO CIVIC USE AS A, UM, AS AN ART MUSEUM WILL INCREASE THE ACCESS, UH, PUBLIC AND ALLOW PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE LAKE FRONT PROPERTY.

UM, ADDITIONALLY, UH, WHAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN IN THE TWO DIFFERENT LAND USE, UH, EXHIBITS IS A CHANGE IN THE DELINEATION OF THE A HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD, PLAIN.

SO THROUGH MODELING EFFORTS AND THROUGH APPROVAL WITH THE FLOODPLAIN OFFICE, THE CHANGE IN THE FLOODPLAIN HAS ACTUALLY INCREASED THE HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD PLAIN ON THE PROPERTY.

ALSO INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF LAND THAT IS REGULATED, UM, BASED ON THE RESTRICTIONS TO DEVELOPMENT ALLOWED IN THE A HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD PLAIN.

AND THEN LASTLY, THERE IS NOT ONLY A INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN THAT IS REQUIRED AS A PART OF THE ORIGINAL PUD, BUT A STATE, A SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT LANDSCAPE TYPES THAT ARE BEING PROPOSED IN THE RESTORATION PLAN.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, SO STAFF RECOMMENDS THE APPROVAL OF THIS BULL CREEK POT AMENDMENT WITH THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS THAT THE APPLICANT COMPLETES THE RESTORATION PLAN PRIOR TO THE CONVERSION OF THE PROPERTY TO CIVIC USE AS ESTABLISHED BY THIS PUD AND FOR YOUR REFERENCE, THERE IS AN ASSOCIATED SITE PLAN LISTED HERE SP 20 21 0 2 4 9 D.

AND FURTHER

[00:30:01]

DEVELOPMENT OR REDEVELOPMENT IS SUBJECT TO CURRENT CODE.

UM, ALSO THE PROJECT SHALL COMPLY WITH 25, 25 8, EXCEPT FOR THE RELEVANT CODE MODIFICATIONS INCLUDED IN THE POT AMENDMENT.

AND THE PROJECT SHALL COMPLY WITH THE ENVIRONMENTAL SUPERIORITY ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE AMENDMENT.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO THAT IS MY PRESENTATION, AND I KNOW THAT THE APPLICANT HAS THEIR PRESENTATION AS WELL, AND I WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS AFTER THEIR PRESENTATION TO PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

YES, MR. AMBERS, I THINK YOU GUYS HAVE THREE SPEAKERS, BUT YOU HAVE 10 MINUTES TO, UH, TO WALK THROUGH Y'ALL'S PRESENTATION.

AND THEN WE'LL TRY TO DO A QA WITH, WITH BOTH Y'ALL AND STAFF.

IF THAT WORKS, MY NAME IS DAVID ARMBRUST REPRESENTING THE APPLICANT.

THIS MAY BE THE MOST UNUSUAL PROJECT THAT YOU'LL EVER SEE IN, IN MY VIEW, IT'S PROBABLY THE MOST UNUSUAL ONE FOR ME.

MR. BOOTH IS AN AMAZING PERSON.

HE'S HAS AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTION OF ART.

THE, WHAT HE HAS THERE TODAY, YOU WOULD EXPECT THAT YOU WERE, IF YOU WERE THERE, YOU WOULD EXPECT YOU WERE IN A INTERNATIONALLY FAMOUS MUSEUM, IS IT'S REALLY, TRULY AMAZING.

WHAT'S THERE, HE'S IN HIS MID SEVENTIES AND, UH, HE WOULD LIKE TO PRESERVE HIS ART FOR THE FUTURE FOREVER.

SO WE'RE HERE REALLY BUILDING A MUSEUM FOR THE FUTURE, WHICH I TRULY BELIEVE WILL BECOME AN INTERNATIONAL DESTINATION.

GIVEN THE QUALITY OF THE ARTS THAT THAT'S THERE.

WE'RE VERY, UH, UH, PLEASED, UH, PROUD OF GREAT TO HAVE SOMEONE OF HIS STATURE, HIS CALIBER, HIS DESIRE.

IT'S VERY RARE THAT YOU FIND A PERSON LIKE MR. BOOTH, WHO NOT ONLY HAS THE DESIRE, BUT THE RESOURCES TO CREATE SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

UH, HIS PLAN IS TO TRY TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT.

WE ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH A, A WORLD-CLASS, UH, MUSEUM OPERATOR, AS AN EXAMPLE, WOULD BE MOMA SOME, SOME INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION LIKE THAT, THAT WOULD OPERATE THIS INTO THE FUTURE.

SO AGAIN, WE'RE, UH, IT'S REALLY EXCITING WHAT WE'RE BUILDING, UH, JUST GOING OUT THERE TODAY.

IT'S I VIEW IT AS KIND OF A MAGICAL PLACE.

IT'S REALLY AMAZING.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

IT'S UH, AND MR. BOOTH HAS REALLY, I MEAN, HE CARES, LITERALLY CARES ABOUT EVERY TREE THAT'S THERE.

SO, UH, WE'RE HERE ASKING YOUR APPROVAL.

UH, WE'VE BEEN IN THIS PROCESS TWO AND A HALF YEARS, AND ALONG THE WAY WE'VE MET WITH STAKEHOLDERS, WE'VE MET WITH THE STAFF, WHICH HAS BEEN GREAT.

WE'VE DONE MANY STUDIES.

YOU MAY RECALL.

LAST MONTH WHEN WE WERE HERE, WE HAD SOME OUTSTANDING ISSUES WITH SOME OF THE REMAINING NEIGHBORS.

I'M PLEASED TO REPORT THAT WE'VE WORKED THOSE ISSUES OUT WITH THE HELP OF KURT, UH, CADENA MITCHELL AND, UH, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER ALTER'S OFFICE.

UH, HE'S BEEN VERY HELPFUL IN BEING A KIND OF AN INTERMEDIARY, BUT WE HAVE KIND OF ONE LITTLE REMAINING ISSUE INVOLVING DRIVEWAY ACCESS THAT INVOLVES A DISCUSSION WITH TXDOT.

SO WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF SETTING UP A MEETING WITH THAT, BUT AGAIN, I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AND THE WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO HERE AND WHAT THE RESULT IS GOING TO BE.

DANIEL.

UM, GOOD EVENING, MR. CHAIR.

VICE-CHAIR COMMISSIONERS.

I'M GOING TO MOVE REALLY QUICKLY.

UM, WE ALL KNOW THE CONTEXT.

UH, IT'S AN AMAZING PROPERTY.

IT'S ABOUT 55 ACRES OR GREEK LIFESTYLE LAKE AUSTIN AND 2222.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, JUST IN TERMS OF THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVEN'T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE IT FROM THE LAKE OR ACTUALLY WALK ON THE PROPERTY, UM, AS, AS DAVID SAID, IT TRULY IS A REMARKABLE ONE OF A KIND PROPERTY, UH, WITH WORLD-CLASS ARCHITECTURE TODAY, UH, AN ART COLLECTION, UM, UNLIKE ANYTHING I'VE SEEN IN TERMS OF A PRIVATE COLLECTION AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO KIND OF REVEAL THIS TO THE PUBLIC IS, IS TRULY, TRULY SPECIAL.

UM, THE LANDSCAPE, UM, LOLAND, UH, WOODLANDS, UH, UPLAND WOODLANDS, RIM, ROCK CLIFFS, UH, SCOTLAND WOODLANDS, AND IT'S TRULY A REMARKABLE PLACE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, AS LESLIE SAID, THE, UH, THE PUD, UH, ORIGINALLY STARTED IN 2011, UM, AND AS SHE'S KIND OF EXPLAINED, THERE ARE TWO PARTS TO THIS AMENDMENT.

THE FIRST OF WHICH IS TO TAKE THAT THREE ACRES OF MIGRATORY BIRD HABITAT, WHICH WAS LOOSELY DEFINED AS A, AS A RECTANGLE AND A POLYGON, AND TO TRULY MAKE IT REAL NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UM, THE EXISTING LOAN MENTO, EXISTING LOAN MEADOWS THAT SITS TODAY, UH, IS COMPRISED OF A FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT STANDARD EXISTING PER COUNTRIES.

UM, THE FRINGE OF THE LAKE AUSTIN AND BULL CREEK IS A FAIRLY LINEAR LINE OF CYPRESS TREES.

AND, UM, IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT THE RECTANGULAR NATURE OF THIS WAS JUST DUE TO LANDFILLS AND KIND OF RECLAMATION THAT HAS OCCURRED OVER THE LAST 80 OR 90 YEARS.

UM, UM, AND SO THESE ARE KIND OF EXISTING OPPORTUNITIES TO KIND OF HEAL BACK SOME OF THE SCARS THAT HAVE BEEN DONE, UH, IN THE PAST NEXT SLIDE, UM, WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH JONATHAN AND HIS TEAM, UM, PARTS OF THAT KIND OF MAKING IT REAL HAS BEEN ABOUT, UM, TAKING THE IDEOLOGY OF THREE ACRES OF MIGRATORY HABITAT, BUT ALSO LOOKING AT THE ENTIRE ECOSYSTEM AND THE REGENERATIVE APPROACH TO LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE AND ECOLOGY LOOKING AT, AND ENHANCING NOT ONLY WETLANDS AND OPEN WATER AREAS, BUT ALSO, UH, CREATING A SUCCESSION STRATEGY FOR THE EXISTING MATURE PECANS, LOOKING AT SIGNIFICANT MEADOW RESTORATIONS, UM, LARGE PERCENTAGES OF LOWLAND AND UPLAND, WOODLAND RESTORATION, AND OF WHICH, UM, OVER THE LAST TWO AND A HALF, THREE YEARS, WE'VE ALREADY BEEN DOING EXTENSIVE NATIVE HABITAT RESTORATION IN TERMS OF NATIVE PLANTS, CONVERTING LAWN AREAS INTO NATIVE PLANTINGS, UM, TO NOT ONLY CURATE ROOMS FOR THE ONGOING KIND OF ART COLLECTION, BUT ALSO TO LOOK AT THE ECOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE AND LANDSCAPE SUPERIORITY.

EXCELLENT, PLEASE.

UM, AND RENDERS NEVER OFTEN DO IT COMPLETE JUSTICE, BUT I'M VERY EXCITED JUST IN TERMS ABOUT HOW WORKING WITH THE FLOODPLAIN, UNDERSTANDING THE SYSTEMS THAT, UH, THAT WE'RE WORKING WITH AND HOW WE CAN KIND OF CONTINUE TO ADAPT AND DEVELOP A REALLY SUPERIOR LANDSCAPE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, THIS HAS BEEN AN EXTENSIVE PROCESS.

UM, WE COME TODAY, COME TO YOU TODAY, UM, HAVING A REALLY ROBUST CONVERSATION WITH STAFF, UM, AND, UM, WORKING SINCE EARLY OF 21, UH, IN THIS PROCESS OF BUILDING CONSENSUS AND TRUST AND AGREEMENT IN TERMS OF THE PATH FORWARD, UM, WE'VE PROVIDED A FULL FLOOD PLAIN ASSESSMENT, UH, WE'VE REASSESSED THE FLOOD PLAIN AND REMAPPED WHERE THE ATLAS 14 FLOODPLAIN ACTUALLY EXISTS ON THE SITE.

UH, WE'VE UPDATED AND ACTUALLY COMPLETED A FULL TREE ASSESSMENT OF THE ENTIRE PROPERTY, NOT JUST THE LIMITS OF CONSTRUCTION, UH, AND WE'VE COORDINATED WITH STAFF EXTENSIVELY ON ALL ASPECTS OF SUPERIORITY, UM, WITH THE MIGRATORY WATERFOWL HABITAT AND THE OVERALL LANDSCAPE PERFORMANCE.

EXCELLENT.

SIMPLY PUT THE RESULT IS A MORE RESILIENT, MORE ROBUST, MORE DIVERSE LANDSCAPE, UM, WITHIN ENHANCED ECOLOGICAL, UH, LANDSCAPE PERFORMANCE, UM, BUT ALSO NO ADVERSE IMPACT THE EXISTING FLOOD PLAIN.

UM, THE BERM FOR EXAMPLE, IS OUTSIDE OF THE FLOOD, PLAIN, THE POND AND THE, AND THE, THE WETLAND AREA ARE INCREASING FLOOD STORAGE INSTEAD OF, UH, CONTAINING OR RESTRAINING THAT, UM, WE ARE BY VIRTUE OF EXCLOSURES.

UM, WE'RE ENHANCING, UH, THE PERFORMATIVE QUALITY AND THE SHORELINE ALONG LAKE AUSTIN.

UM, WE'VE ACTUALLY STUDIED CAREFULLY IN TERMS OF WHERE THE NO WAKE ZONES EXIST ON THE LAKE.

AND WITH HAPPY TO SAY THAT THEY APPEAR TO HAVE GROWN WITHOUT OUR IN NECESSARY ENGAGEMENT.

THEY NOW GO TRULY FROM THE MOUTH OF BULL CREEK ALL THE WAY PAST THE PENNY BACK A BRIDGE, UM, WHICH HAS ALSO A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE AMOUNT OF EROSION ALONG BULL CREEK ON THE TOTALITY OF THAT SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

UM, AND THE END RESULT AS, AS LAISSEZ STATED, WAS THE OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE THREE ACRES OF, OF SUPERIORITY WITH THE MIGRATE TO HABITAT TO NOW BE, UH, WITH YOU TODAY TO SAY, AND KIND OF ILLUSTRATE, UH, 12.57 ACRES OF SUPERIORITY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO WE NOT ONLY GO FROM FAIR TO GOOD IN TERMS OF THE FLOOD PLAIN ASSESSMENT, BUT, UH, WE GO FROM THREE ACRES OF MIGRATORY HABITAT TO 3.44, UH, WE'RE INTRODUCING 3.7 ACRES OF RESTORED MEADOWS AND 7.3

[00:40:01]

ACRES OF NEW WOODLANDS, BUT THE UPLAND ON THE LOWLAND PLUS 600 ACRE, 600, 600 ACRES, 600 FEET OF SHORELINE, UH, IMPROVEMENTS, UH, THAT AGAIN, WORK IN TANDEM WITH THAT, NO, EXXON THE DOODLE ALREADY EXIST.

AND IN TOTAL, UH, ABOUT 8.9 ACRES OF GREEN STORM WATER INFRASTRUCTURE WITH THE ARROYO, WITH THE POND, WITH THE RAIN GARDENS AND THE COMMITMENT FOR LOW IMPACT DESIGN, UM, ALL OF THAT IS THEN CODIFIED BEAUTIFULLY THROUGH JONATHAN'S WORK AND THE ECOLOGICAL KIND OF COMPONENTS.

AND THEN, UH, IN A MORE, UM, BLACK AND WHITE KIND OF BORING WAY AND THE RESTORATION PLAN EXHIBIT F.

AND THAT'S THE NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, BUT ALL OF THAT COMES DOWN TO A SENSE OF, UM, HOW WE THEN CODIFY ALL OF THAT, THE NEXT SLIDE.

AND SO, UM, WE'RE ACHIEVING IS THAT THIS FULL 10 MINUTES.

OKAY.

AND THEN I'LL JUST, UH, VERY QUICKLY KIND OF SUMMARIZE ON, UM, THE OTHER IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS IS THE, UH, THE CIVIC BUILDING AND THE COMMITMENT TO ENSURING NOT ONLY THE SETBACKS AND ENHANCE SETBACKS, WE'VE BEEN WORKING CAREFULLY WITH STAFF AND WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO ENSURE THAT WE'RE OUTSIDE OF THE CF BUFFERS.

WE'RE INCREASING THAT SETBACK OF THE FOOTPRINTS.

AND WE'VE, UH, UH, WORKED IN WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO COMMIT TO A NUMBER OF ASPECTS ABOUT SOUND AND NOISE MITIGATION.

THE TRAFFIC ENHANCEMENT TO JUST LIKE THE LOW MOTTO OF THE CIVIC BUILDING REPRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT A BEST IN CLASS WITH ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY, SUPERIORITY AND RESILIENCE AT EVERY ASPECT OF THIS.

SO, UH, ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE TEAM, UH, WE, UM, GLADLY, UH, OPEN FOR ANY QUESTIONS AND, AND HOPE THAT YOU ACKNOWLEDGE OUR, UM, UH, UH, OUR IDEAS AND OUR THOUGHTS IN TERMS OF WHAT MAKES THIS PROJECT TRULY SPECIAL.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

SO, AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS SLIDE, YOU KNOW, THE COURTYARD NEIGHBORHOOD IS, UH, UH, DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE BULL CREEK PUD.

UM, NOT ONLY THROUGH OUR SHARED PROPERTY BOUNDARIES ALONG 22, 22, BUT ALSO, UM, IN THE MIDDLE OF BULL CREEK.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UH, FIRSTLY, WE WANT TO ENSURE ADDITIONAL PROTECTIONS FOR BULL CREEK, UM, AND SPECIFICALLY FROM THE CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURE ALONG BULL CREEK, AS IT RELATES TO THE PROPOSED 20,000 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING KNOWN AS THE ARTISTS

[00:45:01]

EDUCATION BUILDING.

AND SECOND, WE WOULD LIKE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE RELATING TO OUTDOOR AMPLIFIED SOUND, UM, REGARDING THE PROTECTIONS FOR THE CES.

UM, THE ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT COST FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SEVERAL BUILDINGS LOCATED WITHIN APPROXIMATELY 50 FEET OF THE RIM ROCK CEF, WHICH MR. WOODRUFF HAS ALREADY DESCRIBED, UM, THAT IS THE CLIFF EDGE FLIPPING SHARPLY DOWN INTO BULL CREEK IMPEDIMENT TO THE STAFF APPROVED AND THE MS. ADMINISTRATIVE BEAR VARIANT TO REDUCE THE STANDARD 150 SETBACK, UH, TWO 50 FEET FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SPORT COURT UNDER THE RESIDENTIAL USE IN THIS AMENDMENT.

UM, THERE ARE PLANS TO CONSTRUCT THAT NEW 20,000 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING ALONG WITH THE CARETAKER'S HOUSE AND THE GUEST HOUSE, IT IN THE SAME GENERAL AREA AS A SPORT COURT.

NOW, AS, AS, UH, MR. AND MR. WOODRUFF, UH, DESCRIBED EARLIER, WE HAVE BEEN CONTINUING TO DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN US, THE APPLICANT AND THE CITY STAFF.

AND WE HAVE BEEN FACILITATED VERY KINDLY BY KIRK AND ANNA MITCHELL.

UM, AND STAFF TODAY HAS SUGGESTED SOME ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE WHICH HELPS, HELPS US PRESERVE AND PROTECT THE RIM ROCK CES.

UM, IF YOU WOULD GO TO SLIDE FOUR, NOW THE, THIS SLIDE CONTAINS LANGUAGE THAT WAS APPROVED AS OF, UH, OR AS WAS AGREED ON AS OF NOON TODAY.

AND THAT WAS, I BELIEVE WE'VE HAD SOME UPDATES TO THAT, UM, VERBIAGE, WHICH I, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT ME TO READ IT OR NOT.

IT MIGHT EAT UP ALL MY TIME, BUT, UM, WE WERE ALL AGREED ON THAT.

JUST KEEP GOING.

WE CAN ASK YOU A QUESTIONS, UM, ABOUT THAT LANGUAGE AFTER YOUR TIME COMPLETED.

THANK YOU.

UM, AND THEN FINALLY, IN FURTHER PROTECTION REGARDING THE RIM ROCK CF, WE ALSO UNDERSTAND, YEAH, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE THREE TO EIGHT 50, BUT SIT BACK FROM THE CF, WHICH IS AN INCREASE OF APPROXIMATELY 15 FEET NOW REGARDING APPLE AMPLIFY SOUND, UM, YOUR TIME, IF YOU WANT TO JUST FINISH.

AND THIS TOTAL OF 30 DAYS ABOUT OUTDOOR AMPLIFIED SOUND SHALL NOT EXCEED THE RESIDENTIAL DISABIL LIMIT OF 75 DECIBELS AT THE PROPERTY LINE.

AND, UM, WE ASKED THE COMMISSION TO SUPPORT OUR APP AND INCLUDE THE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE IN THE PUTT AMENDMENT.

AND FOLLOWING ME, LINDA BAILEY WILL HAVE TWO OTHER ITEMS FOR THE AMENDMENT LANGUAGE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

MA'AM.

THANK YOU.

UH, NEXT STEP WE HAVE LINDA BAILEY.

MS. BAILEY, WE HAVE ON THE PHONE AND, UH, OUR IT STAFF ARE CURRENTLY GETTING YOUR PRESENTATION READY, LINDA, IF YOU COULD JUST GIVE US ONE SECOND, WE'LL GET YOU.

WE'LL LET YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR PRESENTATION IS THAT MS. BAILEY, COULD YOU PLEASE CONFIRM THAT YOU'RE ON THE LINE? CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, WE CAN HEAR YOU.

THANK YOU.

UH, JUST ONE MOMENT PLEASE.

MS. BAILEY.

WE'RE LOOKING AT A SLIDE THAT SAYS, UM, BULL CREEK PUB NEIGHBORHOOD NEGOTIATIONS ON THE LEFT.

IS THAT, ARE THOSE YOURS? ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE GOOD TO START.

UM, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND, PLEASE THROW OUT THREE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

UH, HELLO.

I'M LINDA BAILEY AND I WORK WITH A TEAM REPRESENTING 12 NEARBY NEIGHBORHOODS AS DENISE JEFFERSON.

WE'VE BEEN BUSY WITH GOOD FAITH NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE OWNER REPS AND MR. KIDANE AND MITCHELL.

WE HAVE FIVE ASK DENISE JUST PRESENTED THREE AND I'LL DISCUSS THE LAST TWO.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

IS IT, UH, UM, THIS IS A GOOGLE MAP OF THE PUD PROPERTY.

THERE'S TWO DRIVEWAYS.

THE FIRST ONE IS BY THE GUARD HOUSE, UH, WHICH IS TO THE WEST AND IT HAS MINIMAL SIGHT DISTANCE.

SO WE'RE ASKING

[00:50:01]

FOR IT TO BE THE LEAST USED DRIVEWAY.

THE SECOND IS AT 55 0 5 PARADOX COVE THAT'S TO THE EAST, AND WE FIND IT MUCH SAFER TO MANAGE THE 400 TRIPS OF EXPECTED DAILY TRAFFIC.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I'M THE ONLY ONE PRESENTING TODAY, BUT BEN, CHARLIE, TOM, AND MARISSA, AND I HAVE BEEN MAJOR PLAYERS IN THIS AGREEMENT.

WE BELIEVE WE HAVE GENERAL AGREEMENT ON THE RIGHT END, RIGHT OUT ONLY RESTRICTIONS BY THE GATEHOUSE OR EASTERN DRIVEWAY.

THIS ACHIEVES OUR GOAL TO MAKE THE SECOND DRIVEWAY ON 55 0 5 PARADOX.

CO'S THE MAIN DRIVEWAY.

THE OWNER REPS ARE ASKING THAT WE ALL HAVE A MEETING WITH TXDOT FIRST TO CONFIRM THIS.

AND WE'VE AGREED TO THAT MEETING AND ARE WAITING ON THEM TO SET UP THE MEETING.

LASTLY, WE ARE ALSO ASKING FOR A TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR TRANSPORTATION COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT OF THE 400 TRIPS IN ORDER TO REDUCE BACKUP TRAFFIC AT THE DRIVEWAY.

AS AN ASIDE, UH, COMMISSIONERS ARE ALSO ASKING FOR YOU TO THINK ABOUT PROTECTION OF THE CRITICAL ROOT ZONE AT THE DRIVEWAY, BUT WE HAVE NOT DISCUSSED THAT WITH THE OWNER.

DENISE ALSO JUST COVERED THE SOUND AND SETBACK DISCUSSIONS THAT WE'VE HAD WITH THE OWNER REPS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE BELIEVE THAT WE'VE ASKED FOR, UH, FIVE ITEMS AND IF WE GET THESE ASS CODIFIED, WE WILL SUPPORT THE PROJECT.

WE'RE ASKING FOR YOU TO SUPPORT OUR REQUEST BY RECOMMENDING THE FOLLOWING FIVE ITEMS. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE ARE ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT THE STAFF RECOMMENDED CEF PROTECTIONS, THE 65 SETBACKS 65 FOOT SETBACK FROM THE CES, THE AMPLIFIED THEM RESTRICTIONS ON TIME ON, UM, TIMING AND NUMBER OF DAYS AT SAFE EGRESS INGRESS BY REQUESTING THE RIGHT END RIGHT OUT ON THE WESTERN OR SOUTHERN DRIVEWAY AND THE TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO CONTROL TRAFFIC FLOW.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AND WE APPRECIATE THE COOPERATION OF ALL PART.

THANK YOU, MS. BAILEY.

I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

UM, LET'S MAYBE IF YOU GUYS DON'T MIND HEAR FROM THE APPLICANT ON, ON YOUR RESPONSES TO SOME OF THOSE COMMENTS, CAUSE I THINK THAT'LL BE SOME OF THE CONVERSATION WE'RE GOING TO WANT TO HAVE AND NEGOTIATE.

WE HAVE HAD SOME EXTENSIVE NEGOTIATIONS OVER THE LAST REALLY WEEK AND, UH, WE'RE GENERALLY IN AGREEMENT, UH, THE LANGUAGE THAT WAS SHOWN ON THE SCREEN REGARDING THE CEF PROTECTIONS.

UH, WE HAD A DIFFERENT VERSION THAT WE PRESENTED AND I THINK LIZ MAY HAVE REVIEWED IT TODAY, BUT IT'S A DIFFERENT, UH, KIRK AND LIZ, I BELIEVE APPROVED OUR LANGUAGE AND IT'S, IT'S MORE DETAILED THAN WHAT THEY PRESENTED, BUT I THINK IT SAYS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME THING, BUT, UH, SO THAT'S ONE DIFFERENCE.

AND THE OTHER ONE THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE, UH, THE DRIVEWAY ACCESS, THE, WHETHER OR NOT ONE IS PREFERRED OVER THE OTHER, WE HAVE AGREED THAT THE MOST WESTERLY DRIVEWAY WOULD BE RIGHT IN, RIGHT OUT SUBJECT TO A MEETING WITH TXDOT.

AND W W W THAT THERE ARE MORE ISSUES THERE RELATING TO WHICH IS A PREFERRED DRIVE AWAY, WHICH IS NOT BECAUSE WE'VE LIMITED TRIPS ON THE SITE TO MAXIMUM 400 PER DAY.

UH, IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY TIGHT, UH, ISSUE DEALING WITH STAFF, UH, VISITORS.

AND SO UNDOUBTEDLY THERE WILL BE SHUTTLES THAT WILL BE PART OF THIS WHOLE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM.

AND SO WE DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW THAT ALL IS GOING TO WORK.

UH, IT'S COMPLICATED.

AND WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A MEETING WITH TXDOT WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF SETTING UP A MEETING TO INCLUDE, UH, A NEIGHBORHOOD REPRESENTATIVES.

AND, UH, WE'RE WAITING ON A COUPLE OF DAYS FROM OUR TRAFFIC CONSULTANT.

SO AGAIN, JUST SUMMARIZE THE CEF LANGUAGE.

IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT, UH, SLIGHTLY, UH, BUT I THINK AGAIN, UH, LIZ CAN CONFIRM THAT, BUT IT'S, I THINK WE'RE IN AGREEMENT ON IT.

AND THEN, UH, JUST THE, THE DRIVEWAY ISSUE HAS KIND OF, UH, SOME OTHER ISSUES CONNECTED TO

[00:55:01]

IT, BUT WE HAVE AGREED TO THE RIGHT END RIGHT OUT ON THE WESTERN DRIVEWAY, ASSUMING WE GET ALL THESE ISSUES WORKED OUT WITH TECHSTOP.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

ONE, UH, FOLLOW UP, THERE WERE SOME COMP OR SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THEM ABOUT NOISE OR LIMITATIONS ON SOUND.

WE'VE AGREED WITH THE, OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

WHAT WAS PRESENTED AND THE CFS KIND OF IN THAT LAST SUMMARY, THERE WERE TWO ELEMENTS.

ONE WAS GENERAL STAFF, CF SETBACKS, AND THEN THE OTHER WAS THE 65 FOOT SETBACK FOR, I BELIEVE THE CLIFF CEF KIND OF ON THAT WE'VE AGREED TO THE SETBACK, BUT THEN THERE WERE SOME LANGUAGE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS DURING CONSTRUCTION IN TERMS OF, UH, THE CLIFF'S STABILITY AND, UH, HOW THE DRAINAGE IS GOING TO WORK AND THE EROSION.

SO THERE'S TWO ISSUES.

YEAH.

LIZ JOHNSTON, DEPUTY ENVIRONMENTAL OFFICER WITH WATERSHED PROTECTION.

SO THE, THE MAIN, UM, UH, CHAIN WE'RE CHANGING W UM, WAS RE YOU KNOW, STAFF HAD ASKED FOR A SLOPE SPILL STABILITY ANALYSIS, AND THEY HAVE, UM, SUGGESTED USING, UM, GEO-TECHNICAL INSTRUCTIONAL EXPERTS, WELL DESIGN THE PROPOSED BUILDING TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD OF CARE FOR THE PRESERVATION AND PROTECTION OF THE CF.

AND THIS WOULD OCCUR, UH, DURING THE SITE PLAN REVIEW PROCESS.

AND, UM, WE FELT LIKE THAT IS MEETS THE INTENT.

UM, WE WILL BE REQUESTING A SLOPE, STABILITY ANALYSIS AS PART OF THAT.

SO WE'RE FINE THAT LANGUAGE, AND WE CAN, UH, FORWARD THAT LANGUAGE G ALSO IT MAKES IT INTO THE MOTION AND THAT'S NOT IN THE STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS OR THE, IT WAS NOT PART OF THE BACKUP.

IT WAS A NEGOTIATED EARLIER TODAY.

ALL RIGHT.

YEAH.

IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND EMAIL THAT TO JENNIFER, AT LEAST PLEASE.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

YOU MAY BE COMING BACK UP.

SO I'VE BEEN TO, UM, I GUESS MAYBE LET'S GO, LET'S GO TO THE REMOTE, UH, COMMISSIONERS FIRST.

UM, OH YEAH, YEAH.

DO YOU WANT TO MOVE TO CLOSE THAT, UH, MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC, HEARING A SECOND, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR? RAISE YOUR HAND REMOTELY OR SAY AYE IF YOU'RE OR YEAH.

RAISE YOUR HAND.

IT'S EASY.

ALL RIGHT.

LOOKS TO BE UNANIMOUS.

THANK YOU.

UM, THANK YOU.

YEAH.

UM, SO WITH THAT, MAYBE REMOTE COMMISSIONERS, UM, WE'VE GOT STAFF HERE.

WE HAVE THE APPLICANT IN HERE.

UM, MAYBE LET'S JUST GO THROUGH EACH OF Y'ALL IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR EITHER, UM, RELATED TO THE GENERAL PRESENTATIONS OR SOME OF THESE, UH, ADDITIONAL REQUESTS AT THE END COMMISSIONER SCOTT, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING? I, UM, I THINK THAT THE SETBACK OF THE NEW BUILDINGS CONCERNS ME THE MOST, UM, I, HOW MUCH, UM, UH, WHAT, WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE, UM, WHAT'S THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE, UH, OF THE BUILDINGS IN TOTAL THAT, UM, ARE GOING TO BE, UH, UM, CONSTRUCTED THERE.

AND, UM, I, I'M JUST WONDERING WHETHER, UM, IF FOR THE SAKE OF, UM, UM, OVERALL SAFETY, UH, IN CASE THERE SHOULD BE SOME ADVERSE WEATHER DESTRUCTION PHASE THAT THERE MIGHT NEED TO BE, UH, SEVERAL ADDITIONAL STEPS TAKEN, UM, TO PREVENT, UM, UH, UH, S UH, SPILL TO THE, INTO THE INTERVAL CREEK.

UM, AND I JUST WONDERED IF THAT, UH, CAN YOU ADDRESS THAT QUESTION IN TERMS OF, UH, WHAT THE SQUARE FOOTAGE IS? UH, SO I CAN GET A BETTER IDEA OF, OF HOW MUCH A BUILDING WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, AND, AND DO YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL IDEAS ABOUT WAYS THAT YOU CAN, UM, UM, PROTECT THAT AREA? UH, DURING CONSTRUCTION, UH, COMMISSIONER, THE BUILDING IS PROPOSED TO BE APPROXIMATELY 20,000 MAXIMUM OF 20,000 SQUARE FEET IN THE FUTURE.

SO WE'VE DESIGNED A BUILDING ENVELOPE.

UH, THE BUILDING WOULD BE LIKE A CLASSROOM, A CLASSROOM, UH, KIND OF CONTEXT, MAYBE ART STUDIO, THE THERE'S A CEF AT THE CLIFF'S EDGE, WHICH IS A RIM ROCK.

AND ORIGINALLY THERE WAS A 50 FOOT SETBACK.

WE'RE NOW 65 FEET SETBACK FROM THAT WE'RE RIGHT UP AGAINST THE FIRE LANE ON THE INTERIOR OF THE PROPERTY.

SO WE REALLY WERE KIND OF CONSTRAINED TO GO ANY FURTHER.

AND THE LANGUAGE THAT WE WERE DISCUSSING EARLIER IS FAIRLY DETAILED IN TERMS OF WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN DURING CONSTRUCTION, RELATIVE TO EROSION CONTROL, UH, STABILITY OF THE CLIFF.

SO I THINK WE'VE ADDRESSED IT THROUGH THAT LANGUAGE

[01:00:05]

COMMISSIONER AGGIE.

GARY, DO YOU HAVE ANY, UH, QUESTIONS FOR STAFF OR THE APPLICANT? NO CASE OF QUESTIONS.

JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU, UM, TO THE STAFF AND, UM, APPLICANTS FOR THEIR PRESENTATION.

AND I ALSO APPRECIATE IT, THE INVITATION TO TOUR THE AREA, BECAUSE IT GAVE ME AN, A, A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT WAS BEING PROPOSED BY.

I APPRECIATE IT.

THAT OFFER COMMISSIONER NICHOLS.

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING I DON'T HAVE ANY OF THE TIME AND MATERIALS ARE QUITE DETAILED AND THE PRESENTATION SCORE WELL DONE.

SO GOOD JOB.

THANK YOU.

UH, AND COMMISSIONER BRIMER.

YEAH.

THANK YOU FOLKS FOR YOUR TIME AND THE, UH, WELL PREPARED, UH, PRESENTATIONS.

I DO HAVE SEVERAL, UH, SEVERAL THINGS.

UM, I BELIEVE THE AFRICAN MENTIONING SOMETHING ABOUT PUBLIC ACCESS FROM THE LAKE AND THE CREEK THAT CORRECT.

IS THERE, I UNDERSTAND THAT CORRECTLY.

NO, SIR.

THERE WILL BE NO PUBLIC ACCESS FROM EITHER THE BULL CREEK OR THE LAKE.

THE ACCESS WILL COME FROM 20 TO 22.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

UH, I GUESS I MISUNDERSTOOD THAT.

UM, NOW YOU MENTIONED THAT THERE WILL BE THAT THERE'S SOME, NO, UH, UH, NO WAKE ZONES, UH, FROM, UH, BULL CREEK ALL THE WAY TO, UH, ANY PACKER FRIDGE, BUT, UH, YOU DIDN'T MENTION IMMEDIATELY IN FRONT OF THE PROPERTY, UH, YOU KNOW, HIGH WAKES, UH, TEND TO AGGRAVATE, UH, EROSION ALONG THE SHORELINES AND THAT SORT OF THING.

UH, I BELIEVE WHEN WE SPOKE EARLIER, UH, YOU KNOW, YOU S YOU SAID THAT, UH, PUTTING UP, UH, BULLIES THAT, UH, DESIGNATE NO WEIGHTS ON WAS THE PURVIEW OF THE LCRA AND PREP THE CITY ON THIS.

UM, IS IT, UH, YOUR INTENT NOT TO ADDRESS THAT WITH THE CITY OR THE LCRA? UM, I'LL, I'LL MAYBE ASK DAVID JUST TO JUMP IN A SECOND, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT, UM, WE DO ACTUALLY HAVE A SUPPLEMENTAL EXHIBIT B THAT, UH, BE HAPPY TO SHOW THAT ACTUALLY SHOWS THAT THE NO WAKE ZONE HAS BEEN INCREASED FROM PRIOR CONDITIONS.

UM, IN ADDITION, THE PORTION ALONG LAKE AUSTIN IS THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL SECTION WHERE WE'RE ACTUALLY PROPOSING TO DO EXCLOSURES AND SHORELINE REMEDIATION, WHICH IS ALSO THE AREA WHERE THERE ARE THE MOST ESTABLISHED, UH, LARGE CYPRESS TREES, THE STABLE SHORELINE THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN ARMORED WITH, WITH BOULDERS.

UH, THERE IS NO, UH, GABIONS OR SHEET PILING ALONG THIS PORTION OF THE PROPERTY.

SO IT'S KIND OF NATURAL AS, AS A CONDITION.

AND SO, UM, THOSE ARE THE ENVIRONMENTAL, UH, ASPECTS THAT WE'RE ADDRESSING.

AND, UH, IF YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE TERM, EXCLOSURE, IT'S A, UM, UNDERWATER KIND OF ROCK ENCLOSURE THAT PREVENTS THE CARP FROM ATTACKING AND EATING THE WETLAND PLANTS THAT WE WOULD HAVE THAT DISSIPATE THE ROCKS.

AND THEN THE WEAPON PLANTS ACTUALLY DISSIPATE THE SHORELINE, A TIBIDITY AND WAVE ACTION, WHICH, UH, NOT ONLY CREATES GREAT HABITAT, BUT, UH, DRAMATICALLY REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF POTENTIAL EROSION.

UH, ALTHOUGH THIS SECTION IS, UH, REMARKABLY WELL-MAINTAINED TODAY AS MR. BOOTH, UH, OWNS THE PROPERTY, BUT ABOUT, I'LL SEE YOU, RIGHT.

UH, COMMISSION WE'RE, WE'RE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE NO WAKE ZONE.

UH, THAT'S CONTROLLED BY LCRA AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN, BUT APPARENTLY THEY'VE EXTENDED IT, UH, AS DANIEL SAID, AND, UH, MICKEY, IS IT CORRECT THAT THEY REMOVED SOME OF THE BOYS THAT YOU SAY THAT THEY, THEY ELIMINATED THE ONES IN FRONT OF BULL CREEK, BUT WE WERE VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THAT.

AND WE WILL BE GLAD TO, UH, ADVOCATE FOR THAT WITH THE CITY LCRA THAT THE MOUTH OF BULL CREEK ON THE WEEKENDS IS LIKE PARTY CENTRAL.

THERE'S LITERALLY DOZENS AND DOZENS OF BOATS AND LOUD MUSIC.

UH, SO WE'RE, WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE AS MUCH CALM AS WE CAN GET.

OKAY.

YEAH, I UNDERSTAND, UH, YOU CAN'T, UH, CONTROL THE PARTY GOERS, BUT TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU CAN, UH, PUT UP A STOP SIGN, SO TO SPEAK, UH, AND OUR RANGE WITH THE CITY, AS WELL AS THE CRA TO, UH, PUT UP THE BULLIES, THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT I WOULD REQUEST AS PART OF THE AGREEMENT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD AT THIS POINT, I AGREE WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD GROUPS AND THEIR FIRE TO APPS.

SO I WOULD, UH, SUPPORT INCLUDE THOSE ASSETS IN THE, UH, HUD AGREEMENT.

UM, THEN, UM, I GUESS, YOU KNOW, YOU MENTIONED USING, UH, UH, I GUESS A LOT OF THE STUFF, UH, AS FAR AS THE TRIPS, I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

[01:05:01]

NUMBER OF, OF STAFF THEY'RE WORKING ON A PERMANENT BASIS, AND, UH, YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO STAFF, UH, TRIPS IN AND OUT OF THE PLACE, UH, GOING AGAINST YOUR 400, UH, YOU KNOW, VISITORS, SO TO SPEAK, TO COME IN AND, AND, UH, SEE THE, UH, SO I ASSUMING YOU'RE YOU, AS YOU MENTIONED, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A SHUTTLE BUS, UH, RUNNING FROM SOME LOCATION AT SOME PLACE TO, UH, BRING IN STAFF AS WELL AS VISITORS IN THERE SO THAT YOU COULD PERHAPS CYCLE MORE PEOPLE THROUGH WITH, WITHIN THE LIMIT OF 400 CRIPS A DAY.

IS THAT CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT.

IT'S AN ABSOLUTE LIMIT OF 400 TRIPS PER DAY, WHICH IS 200 AND 200 OUT.

THERE'LL BE A NUMBER OF STAFF, PEOPLE WORKING THERE.

SO UNDOUBTEDLY IN THE FUTURE, THERE WILL BE SHUTTLES INVOLVED, WHETHER IT BE JUST FOR STAFF OR FOR, UH, VISITORS OR BOTH THERE, UH, ONE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD GROUPS ASKED FOR A RESERVATION SYSTEM FOR VISITORS COMING TO THE PROPERTY, AND WE'VE AGREED TO THAT THERE WILL BE SECURITY GATES, AND THE TRIPS WILL BE COUNTED.

THE TRIPS WILL BE REPORTED TO THE CITY.

SO, UH, IT, IT'S GOING TO BE VERY TIGHT.

I UNDERSTAND, I UNDERSTAND IF SOMETHING IS POPLARS THAT, UH, WILL ATTRACT A LOT OF VISITORS, UM, I WOULD, UH, ALSO, UH, ENCOURAGE YOU TO, UH, AGAIN, AS I HAD MENTIONED BEFORE, LOOKING AT THE POSSIBILITY, UH, OF, UH, PUTTING THE CHARGING STATIONS AT YOUR, UH, EXTRA LOT AND WITH THE INCREASE, UH, POPULARITY OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES, UH, YOU KNOW, HAVING EVIE VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS, THERE WOULD BE, UH, REDUCE AIR POLLUTION AND A LOT OF OTHER PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE IN THE AREA.

UH, SO I THINK THAT SHOULD BE A GOAL THAT IS PART OF THE PROJECT AS WELL.

UH, ONE OTHER THING, UH, WITH REGARD TO YOUTH PROPERTY BEING, UH, DIRECTLY ON, ON, ON, ON THE LAKE WELLS POOLE CREEK, UM, I'M CONCERNED ABOUT, UH, RUNOFF, UH, FROM, UH, FERTILIZERS AND ANY OTHER, UH, STORAGE OF OTHER THINGS, UH, THAT MIGHT BE GOING ON THERE.

AND I KNOW YOU HAVE, UH, MADE EFFORTS IN ORDER TO, UH, YOU KNOW, PREVENT THAT FROM LEAKING AWAY, UH, YOU KNOW, UH, DETENTION PONDS AND THAT SORT OF THING THERE.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, UH, I'M CURIOUS AS TO WHERE THOSE ARE GOING TO BE STORED AND HOW THEY'RE GOING TO BE SCORED IN A MANNER WHICH IS GOING TO, YOU KNOW, PERHAPS NOT LET THEM GET ON TO THE, UH, THE GRASS IN THE ROYAL, ET CETERA, ET CETERA, TO BE, YOU KNOW, GET DOWN TO THE TENSION PONDS.

UH, THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION, MR. BRIMER.

UM, I THINK THROUGH OUR PRESENTATION AND HOPEFULLY WHAT WE'VE REVEALED TO
