THANKS.

GOOD EVENING MADAM CHAIR AND COMMISSION MEMBERS.

MY NAME IS WENDY ROSE WITH THE PLANNING AND I MET THIS IS IS THE LANE WE'RE DEL CASE LOCATED AT ONE OH EIGHT.

THIS PROPERTY CONTAINS ONE SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE.

IT IS AN INTERMODAL RESIDENCE AND ACCESS THIS OUT FIRST STREET AND THE TERMINATES OF WAYNE.

UH, THERE ARE A SINGLE FAMILY SUBDIVISIONS TO THE WEST AND THE SOUTH WATER CREEK IS CLOSER TO THE NORTH PORTION OF THE PROPERTY AND AKINS HIGH SCHOOL IS TO THE EAST.

UH, THERE IS A 30 FOOT WIDE AREA THAT'S OWNED BY THE NOSE OF SLAUGHTER CREEK HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION THAT CONTAINS THE GAS PIPELINE EASEMENT AND FUNCTIONS OF THE BUFFER AREA.

UM, IN ADDITION, THERE ARE LARGE GROUPINGS OF TREES AT THE SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH PORTIONS OF THE SITE AS WELL AS THE MORE SPORTS IN WHICH INCLUDES THE WATER CREEK FLOOD PLAIN.

THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING ZONING FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF UP TO 750 APARTMENT UNITS.

THE APPLICANT'S REQUESTED CONDITIONAL OVERLAY LIMITS THE PROPERTY TO MS THREE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS FOR THE FRONT YARD BUILDING COVERAGE AND PERVIOUS CAR AND METAL UPSIDE AREA REQUIREMENTS AND GREATER SETBACKS OR DWELLING UNITS AND FENCING ALONG THE SOUTH AND WEST PROPERTY LINE.

THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST FOR MS GIVEN IT TO ACCESS TO AN ARTERIAL AND A COLLECTOR STREET.

UH, GIVEN THAT CONNECTIVITY WILL BE PROVIDED THROUGH THE TRACK, ADDING AN ACCESS OPTION FOR AREA RESIDENTS AND ADDITIONAL BUFFERS PROVIDED BETWEEN SINGLE FAMILY AND MULTIFAMILY.

UH, THE 60 FEET THAT IS PART OF THE FLOOR DISTRICT CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED AT APPROXIMATELY 300 FEET FROM THE CLOSEST SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCES.

AND THERE IS AN EXHIBIT IN THE BACKUP THAT SHOWS WHERE THAT CAN BE ACHIEVED.

THERE WAS A TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS.

THIS CASE, IT DOES RECOMMEND THE EXTENSION OF WAYNE BURDELL LOOP FROM THE TERMINUS AT NO CREEK.

UH, NO WATER CREEK SUBDIVISION TO SOUTH FIRST STREET.

THE EXTENSION IS SHOWN IN THE AUSTIN STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN THAT WAS ADOPTED BY COUNCIL ON APRIL, 2019.

IT'S CONSISTENT WITH A PRIORITY OF THE IMAGINE AUSTIN PLAN TO CREATE A COMPACT AND CONNECTED CITY.

AND THERE IS ALSO A PROVISION IN OUR CODE, THE SUBDIVISION PORTION OF THE CODE THAT REQUIRES EXISTING STREETS BE CONNECTED.

ANOTHER BENEFIT OF CONNECTING STREETS IS DISPERSING THE CURRICULAR TRAFFIC AMONGST MULTIPLE STREETS IN THE AREA THAT WOULD BE CELL FIRST.

MINE WERE DEL DESERT PRIMROSE AND FM 1626.

AND FOR ALL THE REASONS THAT ARE ABOVE.

THESE ARE THE BASIS FOR STAFF, REQUIRES A REP RIGHT AWAY DEDICATION.

WHO ARE THE WIENER DELL EXTENSION AT THE SUBDIVISION.

THE FAN RECOMMENDATION IS SOUND ON WEIGHT.

ON PAGE ONE OF THE REPORT I SUMMARIZED IT EARLIER.

UM, ATD STAFF AT DSC STAFF ARE ALSO PRESENT FOR ANY, FOR QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

AND THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

OKAY, THANK YOU WENDY.

AND NOW WE CAN HEAR FROM THE APPLICANT AND I BELIEVE DAVID HARTMAN, ARE YOU SPEAKING? YES, THIS IS DAVID HARTMAN.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES WE CAN.

AND YOU WILL HAVE SIX MINUTES.

UM, ST ANDREW OR SOMEONE TELL ME WHEN SLIDE NUMBER TWO PROJECT AREA WAS AT .

ANDREW, CAN YOU LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU'RE READY? JUST A MINUTE.

[00:10:09]

YOUR PRESENTATION IS UP TO SLIDE NUMBER TWO PROJECT AREA.

OKAY.

SLIDE TWO'S UP.

YEAH.

GETTING INCOME CHEERING.

COMMISSIONERS.

DAVID HARTMAN ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT OVERUSE MULTIFAMILY.

WE HAVE THE TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERS AS WELL, A CIVIL ENGINEER AND THOSE DEVELOPERS REPRESENTATIVES AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS ON THE PROJECT IS THE ALONG SOUTH FIRST STREET AND THIS IN 1626 WITH AIKEN HIGH TO THE EAST MEADOWS TO THE SOUTH AND NO SUBDIVISION TO THE REST.

NEXT SLIDE.

THE PROPERTY IN MRR ACROSS THE STREET FROM CLUSTER, THAT 35 TO SEE US IN YOU INTO THE NORTH IS G RMU AND THOSE TWO ZONING DESIGNATIONS.

BASICALLY A QUITE ZONING.

NEXT SLIDE.

SOUTH FIRST STREET IS UNIMAGINED AUSTIN QUARTER AND THE PROJECT IS LOOKING AT A HALF MILE FROM SOUTH PARK MEADOWS, LESS THAN TWO MILES FROM IT, THREE, THREE OTHER IMAGINE AUSTIN CENTERS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THE PROJECT BASICALLY IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ASAP, THE SIDEWALK AND THE BICYCLE MASTER PLAN, ALL CALLED FOR SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN THIS AREA AND IT'S ACROSS FROM THE CAT METRO BUS STOP.

NEXT SLIDE.

PROJECT HAS SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT.

IT'S CONSTRAINTS.

THERE'S TWO ONSITE PAWNS ON A SIGNIFICANT PARKLAND AND HERITAGE TREES THAT WE BELIEVE WERE POSITIVE, TREMENDOUS POSITIVE BENEFITS TO THE PROJECT, BUT THEY NEVER LAST.

IN FACT, DEVELOPMENT REQUIRES SENSITIVE DESIGN TO INCORPORATE AND WORK AROUND THE DEVELOPMENT CONSTRAINTS.

NEXT FINE DETAILS.

THE 6.25 ACRES PARKLAND ADJACENT TO SLAUGHTER CREEK AND THE TWO 45 ACRE RECREATION AND TRAIL.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS ILLUSTRATES THE COMPATIBILITY WHERE HE KNOWS FROM ZERO TO 25 FEET.

THERE'S NO STRUCTURE.

THIS IS ALL SUMMARIZED ON PAGE NINE AT THE BACK OF IT, YOU ALSO CANNOT HAVE PARKING OR DRIVEWAY IN THIS AREA AND THEN YOUR FIRST BUILDING BEGINS TO STEP BACK.

NEXT SIDE, IT'S ILLUSTRATED IN THIS NEXT SLIDE, THIS SLIDE, WHICH IS HAS THE 25 FOOT MOBILITY AREA IN RED.

FOR EXAMPLE.

NEXT SLIDE, AND THIS IS THE SIDE THAT MS. RHODES MENTIONED THAT WHERE YOU CAN ACHIEVE JUST 60 FEET WITH FLOOR HEIGHT 300 FEET AWAY FROM THE RESIDENTIAL MIXED SIDE.

THIS IS BASICALLY 37 ACRES CURRENTLY NOT PLANTED WITH NO WATER QUALITY OR DRAINAGE.

PROPOSING 750 MULTIFAMILY UNITS IN TWO PHASES.

ROUGHLY.

ONE FOURTH OF THE PROJECT IS DEDICATED TO PARKLAND WHICH WILL ACTUALLY I'M EXCITED ABOUT.

UM, OUR ZONING APPLICATION IS WHAT I REFER TO AS NFL LIGHT SYMMETRY DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS EXCEPT FOR HIGHS ALONG THE SOUTH FIRST STREET.

THE LAST REQUESTING DEVELOPMENT, A MORE OPEN SPACE, SMALLER FOOTPRINT MOVE, A TREE PRESERVATION AND A SENIOR ALSO PROVIDES FOR THE ENHANCED COMPATIBILITY BUFFERING SENDING STAFF RECOMMENDS AS WELL AS THE NAVY MEADOWS HRA SUPPORTS IN A .

NEXT, NEXT SLIDE.

THESE NEXT TWO SLIDES BASICALLY SUMMARIZE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS ARE ON PAGE 34 OF YOU IS ONLY BACK UP.

I'VE WENT THROUGH EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR AS MS. RHODES POINTED OUT, THERE'S A 30 FOOT WIDE ABANDONED PIPELINE EASEMENT ALONG THE LEFT THAT RESULTS IN AN 80 FOOT WIDE BUFFER ON THE WESTERN BOUNDARY AND THEN AT THE BOTTOM WAS LISTED THAT THERE'S A SIX, SIX FOOT HIGH FENCING THAT WE'RE COMMITTED TO DO ALONG THE SOUTH AND WEST PROPERTY LINE.

NEXT SIDE, THE INFRASTRUCTURE DANNY IS GOING TO COVER.

LOOKING AT THE SECOND BULLET AT THE PARKLAND AT THE ATRIAL RAISE REQUEST.

WE COORDINATED WITH PAR TO PROVIDE FENCING AND GATE SECURITY AND THE PRIVATE CLEAN BELTS AND SECURITY LIGHTING AND LOW LEVEL LIGHTING IN THE PARKLAND DAY AND THEN YOU SEE THE SECURITY MEASURES ONSITE.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS CONCEPTUAL PLAN SHOWS THE MULTIFAMILY PARKWAY IN NEW RECREATIONAL TORONTO AND ALSO LAYS OUT THE SIGNAL IN THE LANGUAGE OUR LOOP EXTENSION THAT ARE IN THE TIA SHOWING THROUGH LANES.

THAT'S A FIRST RATE, MARION'S TWO LANES.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS DETAILS THE ENHANCED BUFFER ALONG THE SOUTH PROPERTY LINE OF 70 FEET.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS THE TYPICAL DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS COMPARISON JUST WITH AN NFR LIGHT ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE WE CAN RETURN TO FOR QUESTIONS.

NEXT

[00:15:01]

SLIDE.

THIS SHOWS BASICALLY TWO RECENT ADJACENT APPROXIMATE APARTMENT COMMUNITIES, WHICH BASICALLY DEMONSTRATES THAT OUR PROPOSED DENSITY AND HEIGHT IS AVERAGE AND RIGHT IN LINE WITH THE 10 ADJACENT PRIDE PROJECTS.

NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE PROPOSED SIDEWALKS INCLUDING THE OFFSITE SIDEWALKS FOR THE AREA.

THE NEXT SIZE SHOWS THE CONNECTING SIDEWALKS TO THE LARGER AREA.

THE NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE PROTECTED BIKE LANE THAT ATD IS REQUIRED IN THE TA.

THE NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE LARGER CONNECTIVITY OF TRAILS AND PARKLAND.

THEN THIS NEXT SLIDE JUST SUMMARIZES THE NO'S HR ISSUES.

WE BASICALLY ADDRESS MULTIPLE ISSUES THAT HAVE BEEN LISTED THERE, BUT THE ISSUE THAT REMAINS BOILS DOWN TO WHETHER TO APPROVE CRASH GATE OR COMPLETE LANE WITHOUT LOOP EXTENSION FROM SOUTH FIRST STREET TO THE EXISTING LANGUAGE LOOP.

OUR PROJECT WORKS WITH OR WITHOUT A CRASH GATE THERE OBVIOUSLY ATB RECOMMENDED INCLUDING THE TIA AND THE CRASH GATE IN OUR VIEW AS A POLICY CHOICE FOR ZAP AND SEEK COUNSELING.

THERE'S SOME DISCUSSIONS IN THE PAST FROM THE NOSE HLA ABOUT CARVING OUT LAYING FROM RIVERDALE TRACK FROM OUR ZONING APPLICATION THAT THEY THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO TO BLOCK EXTENSIVE LANGUAGE OBVIOUS THAT MULTIPLE CITIES DEPARTMENTS WOULD RECOMMEND DENIAL IF THAT WERE TO OCCUR AND AS MS. ROSE SAYS ON PAGE THREE, LET ME BACK UP THERE REQUIRES EXPANSION.

THE LAST SLIDE IS THE REASONS TO SUPPORT AND I'LL LEAVE YOU WITH THAT.

IT BASICALLY FULFILLS IMAGINE LOSSES IN A S AND P IN MULTIPLE LOAD PLANS AND I'LL TURN IT OVER TO DAN MUNICI.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THEN STIR HENNESSY.

YOU HAVE, YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

IF MR HENNESSY IS THERE.

I'M HERE.

ANDREW, WOULD YOU LET ME KNOW WHEN THAT PRESENTATION'S UP PLEASE? YEAH.

YES SIR.

WILL DO.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

UH, GOOD EVENING, COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS DAN HENNESSY WITH WTI.

I'M THE ATTRACTOR ENGINEER FOR THE PROJECT AND WANTED TO, UH, BRIEFLY HIGHLIGHT SOME OF THE MOBILITY CONCERNS AND THE WAYS THAT THE PROJECT ADDRESSES, UH, SOME OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE DEFICIENCIES IN THE AREA.

UH, HIGHLIGHTED AMONGST THOSE.

ON SLIDE TWO IS THE SIGNALIZED AT THE PROPOSED INTERSECTION OF BROOKLYN RIDELL LOOP AND SOUTH FIRST AND AT THE AKINS HIGH SCHOOL ACCESS DRIVEWAY, UH, WOULD BE AT A TRAFFIC CALMING, UH, ELEMENT FOUR SOUTH FIRST STREET.

UH, WE'VE HEARD AND OBSERVED SOME REPORTS OF HIGH SPEEDS ALONG SOUTH FIRST STREET, UH, OBVIOUSLY EXTENDING AND DEDICATING WAYNE RIDELL LOOP.

UH, AND DAVID SHOWED A COUPLE OF IMAGES OF THAT.

WE ALSO, UH, OFFERED TO PROVIDE, UM, TRAFFIC CALMING DEVICES ALONG THE EXISTING SECTION OF WITHOUT A LOOP, UH, WHICH I'LL GET INTO IN A MOMENT.

UH, COMPLETING SIDEWALK AND PEDESTRIAN CONNECTIONS TO A HIGH SCHOOL AND ANOTHER, UH, PEDESTRIAN CONNECTION ACROSS OUR FIRST STREET WITH THE NEW SIGNAL.

AND THEN ALSO, UM, TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO THE DEVELOPER AND INCLUDED IN THE SITE PLAN.

UH, ONCE WE GET TO THAT STAGE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UH, YOU SEE FROM THE IMAGE ON THE EAST SIDE, WE HAVE THE SIGNAL OF THE UH, ROADWAY FOLLOWED THE, UH, AUSTIN STREET DESIGN GUIDE, UH, AND CONNECTS TO EXISTING RIDELL LOOP, WHICH IS A 40 FOOT CURB TO CURB SECTION OF STREET WITH NO STRIPING AND OTHER NO OTHER DELINEATIONS.

UM, THAT SECTION OF STREET, UH, HAS NOTHING FRONTING IT EXCEPT FOR OFFENSES AND CONNECTIONS TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND, UH, DOES INCENTIVIZE SOME HIGH SPEEDS BASED ON THE CURRENT DESIGN.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

A LITTLE MORE DETAIL ABOUT OUR DESIGN FOR RIDELL.

A LITTLE BIT WOULD HAVE, UH, 13 FOOT TRAVEL LANES, UH, WITH A FOUR FOOT BUFFER AND A SEVEN FOOT BIKE LANE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE STREET, BUT ALSO BE COMPLETE WITH A BIKE BOX, UH, AT SOUTH FIRST STREET TO ALLOW GREATER CONNECTIVITY FOR BICYCLISTS FROM TO AND FROM SOUTH FIRST STREET IN 1626 AND THIS COULD BE CONSISTENT WITH A NUMBER OF TRAFFIC CALMING MEASURES PROPOSED FOR THE REMAINING, UH, RIDDLE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

UM, FM 1626.

THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT PROJECTS, UH, COMPLEX CONTEMPLATED RIGHT NOW, THE ORANGE LINE THAT YOU SEE, CITY OF AUSTIN, UH, UH, MOBILITY BOND PROJECT.

THAT'S A QUARTER PLAN FOR THAT THAT IS NOT FUNDED.

UH, THE GREEN PROJECT IS A TEXTILE PROJECT THAT WOULD MAKE THAT SECTION BETWEEN, UH, SOMBRERO AND SOUTH FIRST STREET, SAFER WITH WIDER SHOULDERS AND AN ADDITIONAL TURN LANE AND A PROJECT TO THE WEST BETWEEN BRODY AND MANCHESTER IS,

[00:20:01]

UH, EXPECTED TO START THE SUMMER AND WOULD WIDEN THAT SECTION FROM A TWO TO THREE, TWO OR THREE LANES CURRENTLY UP TO FIVE, UH, ACROSS THAT SECTION.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

ACTUALLY THE NEXT COUPLE OF SLIDES ARE JUST, UH, ADDITIONAL DETAILS OF THOSE FOR YOU TO REVIEW IN THE BACKUP AND SHOW THE CROSS SECTIONS AND EXTENTS.

UH, ON SLIDE 10, UM, WE'VE ALSO HAD A NUMBER OF DISCUSSIONS WITH AKINS HIGH SCHOOL ABOUT, UH, CIRCULATION ISSUES.

THEY HAVE, UH, SOME CIRCULATION ISSUES RIGHT NOW RELATED TO THE CURING OF VEHICLES ON SOUTH FIRST STREET IN THE BIKE LANE.

YOU KNOW, THOSE ARE, UH, ILLEGAL MOVEMENTS RIGHT NOW AND WOULD BE PROHIBITED WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PROTECTED BIKE LANES ON SOUTH FIRST STREET.

WE'VE DONE SOME REVIEWS OF, UM, UH, OF THAT PICKUP SITUATION.

ON THE NEXT SLIDE, YOU'LL SEE A SITUATION OF THE CARS PARKED AND ALSO PICK UP AND DROP OFFS.

HAVE ANY HAPPENING WITHIN THE TRAVEL LANES THEMSELVES.

UM, WE'VE MADE A NUMBER OF RECOMMENDATIONS THEY CAN TIE THAT WE FEEL LIKE, UH, WOULD FIX SOME OF THOSE ISSUES.

WE'VE DONE THESE TYPES OF CIRCULATION STUDIES THAT MORE THAN 20 SCHOOLS AROUND TEXAS AND, UM, UH, FIX THE NUMBER OF CIRCULATION ISSUES FOR BOTH PRIVATE CHARTER AND, UH, ISD SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT TEXAS.

UH, LASTLY ON SLIDE 13, JUST SHOWING SOME OF THE POTENTIAL OPTIONS FOR RIDELL LOOP, TRIPLE TRAFFIC CALMING.

UM, THERE ARE SPEED HUMPS, THERE ARE STOP SIGNS.

ATD HAS INDICATED GENERAL SUPPORT FOR THE CONCEPT OF TRAFFIC CALMING, BUT WE HAVE NOT, UM, IDENTIFIED EXACTLY WHAT MEASURES YET.

AND ALSO THIS WOULD BE AN OPTIONAL, UH, OFFER TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT'S OUTSIDE OF THE REALM OF THE TIA AND ALSO ABOVE AND BEYOND THEIR ROUGH PROPORTIONALITY REQUIREMENTS.

UH, THE LAST SLIDE JUST SHOWS THAT THE, UH, RIDELL LOOP EXTENSION IN THE AMP AND THAT IT'S CALLED FOUR BETWEEN THE EXISTING LOOP AND UH, IT CAN TIE IN EXACTLY WHAT THE DESCRIPTION OF THAT IS IN THE, UH, STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH MR HENNESSY.

AND IS BEN BROWDER WISHING TO SPEAK? UM, IT LOOKS LIKE HE SIGNED UP AND HE WILL ALSO HAVE THREE MINUTES.

SUSAN.

OKAY.

SUSAN KIRKPATRICK.

UM, ARE YOU THERE? AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

HI, THIS IS SUSAN KIRKPATRICK.

THANK YOU.

UH, AS DAVID SAID, I'M WITH THE BOARD OF THE MEADOWS, THE DEVIL CREEK SUBDIVISION.

WE ARE JUST SOUTH OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

UH, WE'VE BEEN WORKING WITH DAVID AND OTHER KEY MEMBERS OF THE ODU TEAM SINCE OCTOBER TO UNDERSTAND THE MANY FACETS OF THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT.

A KEY FACTOR OF THESE CONVERSATIONS HAS BEEN FOCUSING ON THE SOLUTIONS WITH DEVELOPMENT TEAM WOULD PROVIDE, UM, OUR AREAS OF CONCERN, UM, WHICH INCLUDED THE ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOODS AS WELL AS OUR OWN.

UM, THEY ADDRESS ALL OF OUR CONCERNS REGARDING TO PROXIMITY AND PLACEMENT OF BUILDINGS, DRAINAGE AND WATER TRAFFIC, INCREASE MOBILITY, SAFETY AND UH, AS WELL AS MAKING AN EFFORT TO PROPOSE A DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL BE THE OWNER, THE RESIDENTIAL FEEL OF OUR EXISTING COMMUNITY AND PROVIDE ADDITIONAL COMMUNITY BENEFITS TO THE AREA WHEN ISSUE THAT REMAINS OPEN IS THE EXTENSION OF THE WAYNE RIDELL CORRIDOR.

AS WE UNDERSTAND IT, THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM HAS OFFERED TWO SOLUTIONS FOR EXEMPTION.

UM, I THINK BOTH OF THOSE WERE HEARD TODAY.

WE WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND THAT IF THE PROPOSED REASON IN CASE BE APPROVED, IT IS DONE.

SO WITH THE CORRIDOR EXTENSION FROM SOUTH FIRST STREET TO THE EXISTING WINDOW LOOP IS IN FACT, UH, TRAFFIC IS A KEY CONCERN FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, WE FEEL STRONGLY THAT THIS ROAD EXTENSION WILL REDUCE THE EXISTING CUT-THROUGH TRAFFIC THAT OUR NEIGHBORHOOD ACTUALLY RECEIVED AS WELL AS USE SOME OF THE CONGESTION AT SOUTH VERSUS 1626 INTERSECTION.

AND THIS EXTENSION ALSO HELP DECREASE CONGESTION AT THE ENTRY AND EXIT POINTS TO AKINS HIGH SCHOOL DURING PEAK HOURS, WHICH PROVIDES ADDITIONAL SAFETY MEASURES FOR THE MANY, MANY STUDENTS THAT CURRENTLY CROSSED OUT FIRST TO AND FROM THAT SCHOOL.

UM, ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE OTHER THINGS THAT, THAT WE FEEL STRONGLY, UM, THAT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE DEVELOPMENT BRINGING, EXTENDING OUR SIDEWALK BIKE LANE IMPROVEMENTS ON SOUTH FIRST TO WHICH PULLS UP, IMPROVED, UM, WALKING PATH AND LIGHTING AREAS.

AND OF COURSE THEY'RE SAVING OUR HERITAGE TREES, WHICH WE ALSO FEEL PASSIONATELY ABOUT.

OUR COMMUNITY BELIEVES THAT THEIR PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT WILL BE A GOOD ADDITION TO OUR COMMUNITY AND THE ADDITION OF QUARTER EXTENSION THAT HELPS RESOLVE CRUCIAL AREA CONCERNS WILL PROVIDE FURTHER GROWTH AND ENJOYMENT OF OUR SOUTH AUSTIN NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THAT CONCLUDES THE SPEAKERS IN FAVOR.

AND NOW WE WILL GO ONTO THE SPEAKERS AGAINST, AND I'M GOING TO LIST PROBABLY ABOUT THE FIRST, APPROXIMATELY 20.

THE LEAD SPEAKER WILL BE BOBBY LUBINSKI, THEN GREG SANTIAGO, ORLANDO MARTINEZ, MATEA MATTEO MARTINEZ, MICHAEL PLASTER, REBECCA HOWE, KEVIN CHENEY, JIM DEW, SAM PRITCHARD, BECKY

[00:25:01]

WOOD WITH HER FAMILY MEMBERS.

UM, LOOKS LIKE JAMES WOOD AND, AND OH NO, IT ACTUALLY JUST LOOKS LIKE ONE OTHER PERSON UNLESS THERE'S A, BECKY WOULDN'T HAVE REBECCA.

UM, AND THEN AFTER HER WILL BE AARON SIMMONS AND THEN I'LL GO OVER THE LIST WHEN WE GO THROUGH THOSE.

SO BOBBY LEVINSKY, YOU'RE THE LEAD OFF AND YOU WILL HAVE SIX MINUTES.

THANK YOU CHAIR.

THIS IS BOBBY LEVINSKY AND I'M REPRESENTING THE KNOLL THAT PLOTTER CREEK, THE NOLS HAVE ASKED ME TO COME ON AND HOPES OF WORKING OUT AN AGREEMENT WITH THE APPLICANT WHERE THEY WOULD ACTUALLY SUPPORT THIS DEVELOPMENT MOVING FORWARD.

I THOUGHT WE COULD GET THERE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE DIDN'T.

UM, WE STILL LACK A RESOLUTION MARGINALLY ON THE TRAFFIC CONCERNS CAUSED BY THE EXTENSION OF PRETTY MUCH FOR THE SAME REASONS THAT THE PRAYERS SPEAKER IS SUPPORTING IT OR THE REASONS WHY WITH NEIGHBORHOODS OPPOSING IT.

BECAUSE IT WILL ALL THAT CUT THROUGH TRAFFIC THAT THEY'RE EXPERIENCING IS JUST GOING TO GO INTO UM, THE WINNING MADELL NEIGHBORHOOD.

UM, YOU ARE GOING TO HEAR FROM A WIDE ARRAY OF SPEAKERS TONIGHT, UH, FROM A LOT OF DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS AND I'VE DONE MY BEST TO CONSOLIDATE SOME OF THE GENERAL THEMES AND THE REQUESTED MOTION SHEET THAT I EMAILED YOU EARLIER TODAY.

HOWEVER, I'M SURE YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR SOME OTHER CONCERNS AS WELL AND UM, ALTHOUGH SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AND THEY MAY NOT BE ALL REFLECTED ON THAT SHEET.

I'M JUST TRYING TO DO MY BEST TO CONSOLIDATE THE THINGS.

UM, I'M AMAZED BY THE TURNOUT WE HAVE.

WE HAVE APPROXIMATELY 80 PEOPLE THAT HAVE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK AGAINST THIS PROJECT.

I THINK THAT HIGHLIGHTS THAT THIS CASE IS NOT QUITE READY TO MOVE FORWARD.

THERE'S MORE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND I'VE DONE MY DARNEDEST TO REACH A RESOLUTION, BUT UM, WE JUST NEED MORE TIME.

TO ME, THERE ARE THREE MAJOR THINGS TO BE CONSIDERED.

THE FIRST IS THE BASE NOTION.

IF YOU LOOK AT THESE OWNERS IN THE AREA NFR FAR EXCEEDS ANY ZONING REQUESTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE IN THIS AREA.

I JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO, THIS TRACT WAS SET TO BE ZONED TO RR AS PART OF THE CODE NEXT.

UM, SO IF YOU LOOK AT THE ZONINGS THAT HAVE OCCURRED, THEY TYPICALLY FALL IN THAT RANGE, SO YOU BASICALLY MOTION SHOULD BE REDUCED A BIT.

I UNDERSTAND THAT.

UM, THE APPLICANT HAS SAID THAT THIS IS THE MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY CHALLENGING SITE THAT HE'S WORKED WITH.

UM, AND JUST IN MY EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH ENVIRONMENTALLY CHALLENGING SITES, THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS TO ACTUALLY THE WOMEN, THE DEVELOPMENT ON THE SITE, UM, BY CONSOLIDATING, UM, THE APPLICANT STILL PROPOSING A GARDEN STYLE APARTMENT COMPLEX WITH 65% IMPERVIOUS COVER.

UM, SO WE'D LIKE TO SEE THAT REDUCED TO 50% AND CONSIDER SOME OF THE FLOODING AND EROSION AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION PROBLEMS THAT ARE KNOWN TO FODDER CREEK AND ONION CREEK WHERE THIS CONVERGES, UM, THAT ARE KNOWN IN THE AREA.

AND WE LIKE THEM TO DO WITH MAYBE SOME ONSITE WATER RETENTION REQUIREMENTS SUCH AS RAIN, RAIN GARDENS OR PERVIOUS PAVERS.

UM, AND THEN OF COURSE THE LAST POINT IS THE EXTENSION OF THE ROADWAY.

UM, THIS AREA IS A TRAFFIC NIGHTMARE.

THIS IS LITERALLY AN AREA WHERE PEOPLE LINE UP BEHIND A GAS STATION NEAR 35 TO ACCESS 1626.

PEOPLE GET CREATIVE WITH THEIR CUT-THROUGH.

UM, THE TRAFFIC STUDY SHOWS THAT IT COULD DEFER UP TO 30% OF THE TRAFFIC OFFICE OUT FIRST INTO THIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND I'M ALL FOR CONNECTIVITY.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE CONFIGURATION OF THIS ROADWAY, IT'S MUCH MORE AKIN TO AN EXTENDED RIGHT TURN LANE THAN IT IS, UM, CREATING SOME SORT OF CONNECTED GRID THAT WE KNOW WITH PLANNING PRINCIPLES.

UM, THE AFRICAN HAS SAID THAT THIS EXTENSION WORKS.

THERE'LL BE, UM, THIS EXTENSION WORKS FOR THE PROJECT.

HE'S FINE WITHOUT IT.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD DOESN'T WANT IT AND WE'RE HOPING THAT YOU CAN HELP US REMOVE IT.

THE CODE PROVISION THAT WAS CITED BY STAFF, UM, THEY LEFT OFF A REALLY IMPORTANT PART.

IT'S SECTION 25, 41 51 AND IT ENDS THAT, UM, SHALL, IT SHALL BE ALIGNED WITH THE, UH, EXISTING STREETS AND ADJOINING PROPERTY UNLESS THE LAND USE COMMISSION DETERMINED THAT OTHER CONSIDERATIONS MAKE IT DESIRABLE TO DEPART FROM THAT ALIGNMENT OR CONNECTION.

SO THE FLEXIBILITY IS THERE AND WE'RE, WE'RE ASKING YOU TO EXERCISE THAT IF YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH THE FOUR POINTS AREA AND UM, AT SIX 20, 20 AND 2022 TEXTILE IS LITERALLY INSTALLING A BYPASS ROUTE THAT LOOKS VERY SIMILAR TO THIS ROADWAY.

IT DIVERTS TRAFFIC AWAY FROM THAT INTERSECTION AND THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE GOT.

YOU'VE GOT JUST A, A LARGE CURVED LANE THAT JUST BYPASSES AN INTERSECTION AND WILL DIVERT TRAFFIC FROM THAT INTERSECTION LIKE THE PRIOR SPEAKER NOTED.

THAT'S, THAT'S, THAT'S A HUGE CONCERN FOR THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, UM, BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT THE SACRIFICE TO BE THEIR CHILDREN AND THEN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ITSELF.

SO, UM, AND FINALLY, UH, WE'RE NOT TRYING TO, UH, REPRODUCE ALL, UM, CONNECTIVITY.

THEY STILL ARE, THE NEIGHBORHOODS EXPRESSED A STRONG DESIRE THAT A PEDESTRIAN BIKE ACCESS STILL CAN MAKE IT WAY THROUGH THE SITE.

UM, AND SO THEY'RE JUST ASKING YOU TO HOLD BACK ON THE FRONT GATE TO THE ANGER, COMMUTERS AND EVENINGS.

SO, UM, THANK YOU.

AND, UH, I'M GOING TO STAY ON THE LINE TOWARDS THE END TO HELP ANSWER QUESTION, BUT, UM, MAYBE IS PROBABLY THE BEST, UH, TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AT THE END AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

HEY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THEN NEXT IS GREG SANTIAGO AND MR. SANTIAGO, YOU WON'T HAVE THREE MINUTES AS SPEAKERS UNLESS YOU HAVE DONATED TIME.

OKAY.

OH, KAITLIN.

[00:30:01]

WE MOVED INTO THIS NEIGHBORHOOD 11 YEARS AGO, FEW MONTHS, UH, ABOUT NINE MONTHS AFTER WE GOT MARRIED, WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT NEIGHBORHOOD BECAUSE WHEN WE WANTED TO BUY OUR FIRST HOME, AND THIS IS OUR FIRST HOME, WE WANTED TO FILL THE HOME WITH A FAMILY AND WE HAVE DONE THAT WITH OUR TWO BOYS.

MY TAIL, YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM ME JUST A SECOND.

AND DIEGO, OUR SIX YEAR OLD, THE REASON WHY WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE PERFECT HOME IS BECAUSE WE WANTED TO RAISE OUR FAMILY AND APPLIED COMMUNITY WHERE NEIGHBORS SHARED OUR SAME VALUES.

AND WE ARE VERY, VERY FORTUNATE FROM THE OF SLAUGHTER CREEK THAT WE HAVE FOUND THAT WE ARE OPPOSED TO THE DEVELOPMENT WE DRIVE THROUGH OF UM, WAYNE RIDELL LOOP SIMPLY BECAUSE WHEN WE GO WALKING, BIKE RIDING ALONG WAYNE RODALE LOOP OR OUR OTHER STREET, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE.

AND AS WE WALK, AS WE HIKE, AS WE BIKE, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT TRAFFIC IS NOT INCREASED, ESPECIALLY THROUGH WAYNE RIDELL LOOP.

BECAUSE WE KNOW THE DANGERS THAT ARE INVOLVED WHEN IT COMES TO AN INCREASED TRAFFIC AND SPEEDERS THAT MAY BE GOING, THAT ARE GOING TO BE RACING THROUGH THE STREETS TO GET TO THE OTHER SIDE.

UNLIKE WHAT WE CURRENTLY DO IS WE COME INTO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND WE GO HOME AND WE WAKE UP EARLY AND WE LEAVE FOR WORK.

BUT WHAT WE'RE AGAINST IS THIS DEVELOPED THE REASON WHY WE'RE AGAINST THIS DEVELOPMENTS BECAUSE AS YOU INCREASE, UH, TRAFFIC, AS MORE PEOPLE MOVE INTO THIS COMMUNITY, YOU ARGUE INCREASED THAT RISK OF DANGER WHERE A TRAGIC ACCIDENT COULD OCCUR AND I DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.

I WANT TO PREVENT THAT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

AND WHAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE RIGHT NOW IS A GREAT QUIET FAMILY ORIENTED NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE WANT TO KEEP OUR PARADES JUST AS GREG TALKED ABOUT RIGHT NOW.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET OUR SPLASH SPLASH PAD FOR THE CHILDREN.

WE WANT TO KEEP OUR EVENTS AND I THINK HE'S STILL VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND I CANNOT PREVENT THIS DEVELOPMENT FROM OCCURRING AND THE THROUGH TRAFFIC TO GO THROUGH WAYNE RIDDLE LOOP.

COMMISSIONER.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR LISTENING.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND MATTEO MARTINEZ WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

OKAY.

OKAY.

HELLO, MY NAME IS MATEO MARTINEZ AND I AM 10 YEARS OLD.

I DID NOT WANT THIS APARTMENT COMPLEX BUILT AND THAT AND I DO NOT WANT TO BE DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREET OUTSIDE AND RIDING MY BIKE WITH MY LITTLE BROTHER.

JUST LEARNED AND LEARNED HOW TO RIDE A BIKE APARTMENT BUILDING APARTMENTS AND WITHOUT WILL MAKE MY NEIGHBORHOOD UNSAFE BECAUSE OF SPEEDING CARS, WHICH WILL INCREASE THE RISK TO PEDESTRIANS IN CHILDREN IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

MR. MARTINEZ.

NEXT CAUSE MICHAEL POLLSTER, YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

OKAY.

AND THEN 34 YEARS.

YEAH, I'M SORRY.

THERE WAS AN ISSUE, UM, WITH THAT STUFF.

YEAH.

I'M HERE AT ST.

MY OPPOSITION TO BOTH THE PROPOSED 750 HEIGHTENS

[00:40:01]

THE APARTMENT UNITS TO BE LOCATED ADJACENT TO AND A BUDDING OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AS WELL AS THE EXTENSION OF WAYNE RIDELL LOOP TO SOUTH FIRST STREET.

I BELIEVE THE TWO ARE TIED TOGETHER.

THE ADDITION OF HUNDREDS OF NEW VEHICLE TRIPS, WE'LL MAKE THE SOUTH FIRST FM 1626 INTERSECTION MORE CONGESTED IT SEVERAL TIMES THROUGHOUT THE DAY ESPECIALLY, SO GIVEN AN OVERCROWDED HIGH SCHOOL JUST ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE PROJECT, THE SUGGESTED MADE FOR AN EXTENSION OF WAYNE MADONNA, LUTHER SOUTH FIRST IS DUE TO THE PROPOSED PROJECTS HIGH DENSITY.

SHOULD THE RIDELL BE EXTENDED TO SOUTH FIRST THE AREAS LIVABILITY WOULD SUFFER WITH THE ADDITION OF 790 NEW TRIPS MOVING ON TO RIVERDALE LOOP DURING RUSH HOUR ALONE ALL THE TIME.

THE LOCAL CONGESTION NEAR THE END OF SOUTH FIRST WILL AFFECT EVERYONE IN THE AREA INCLUDING THE NEWER BUT LESS DENSELY BUILT APARTMENT PROJECTS.

WHY SHOULD THIS PROJECT BE OUT OF SYNC WITH THE REST OF THE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA? THE EXTENSION OF THE RIDELL LOOP WILL CUT THROUGH THE HEART OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD PROVIDING IT IN HALF AND MAKING IT MORE DANGEROUS FOR RESIDENTS AND CHILDREN TO ACCESS NEIGHBORHOOD AMENITIES.

IT WOULD BE AN EVER INCREASING THREAT TO RESIDENTS' SAFETY MOTOR.

LOOKING FOR SHORTCUTS SUCH AS AN EXTENDED AND CONNECTED RIDELL LOOP WILL GREATLY ADD TO NEIGHBORHOOD TRAFFIC AND INCREASED CRASH EXPOSURE FOR PEDESTRIANS, BICYCLISTS, AND CARS.

MOTORISTS LED BY BIRTH THROUGH A NEIGHBORHOOD OFTEN DRIVE AT EXCESSIVE SPEED.

AND WE KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.

IF THE PROPOSED HIGH DENSITY PROJECT WAS INSTEAD DESIGNATED SINGLE FAMILY ARE LOW TO MEDIUM DENSITY MULTI-RESIDENTIAL UH, THERE WOULD BE PROBABLY A NEED TO, THERE WOULD NOT BE A NEED TO EXTEND THE RIDELL LIFT THE SOUTH FIRST STREET.

I DON'T THINK SO.

AND GIVEN THE PLAN, ADDITION OF PEDESTRIAN SIDEWALKS AND BIKE ACCESS, CONNECTING RIDELL LOOP ITSELF FIRST, THE CITY MAY BY CODE REJECT THE NEED FOR CONNECTING STREETS.

OKAY.

CITY PLANNING SHOULD TAKE A NEW LOOK.

PLACING EMPHASIS ON TRAFFIC, SIGNAL TIMING AND SYNCHRONIZATION AT SOUTH FIRST 1626 INCLUDING BETTER LANE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION.

ONCE FINISHED, THIS DESIGN WILL BE HERE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.

THE INTERSECTION IN QUESTION SHOULD BE MADE TO WORK, NOT DAMAGED NEIGHBORHOODS AND IT CAN BE BY REDUCING THE PROPOSED PROJECTS.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MR PLASTER.

REBECCA HOWE NEXT AND THEN KEVIN CHENEY AND REBECCA, YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

SHE DIDN'T MINISTER BECAUSE THEY'LL JUST FAMILY IN A TYPE II GENERAL LAW MUNICIPALITY, SOUTH OF AUSTIN AND JUST WEST OF THE OLDEST BUTTER CREEK.

TODAY I'M ADDRESSING THE COMMISSION ON BEHALF OF NOT ONLY MYSELF BUT THE BOARD OF ALDERMAN AND THE GENERAL POPULATION OF THE VILLAGE OF FAMILY AND UH, AND OPPOSING THE MODERATE HIGH DENSITY ZONING CLASSIFICATION AND THE EXTENSION OF WIND RIDDLES LOOPS TO MEET SOFTWARE STREET.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND? 750 NEW DWELLING.

AND AS SOON AS AREA SURROUNDING OUR NEIGHBORHOOD PRESENTS MANY PROBLEMS INCLUDING PROFIT AND SAFETY CONCERNS THAT HAVE GONE UNADDRESSED FOR YEARS.

JUST DEVELOPMENT IS DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM A SCHOOL WHOSE STUDENTS ARE ALREADY CONTENDING WITH HEAVY TRAFFIC AND UNSAFE WALKING ROUTES AROUND OUR CAMPUS.

I WILL NOT BE GOING DEEPLY INTO THE SIDE OF THE TOPIC IF I ONLY HAVE THREE MINUTES.

AND I AM SURE THAT THERE ARE OTHER COLORS THAT WE'LL BE TOUCHING ON THESE ISSUES.

SO IF I HAVE TO SAY THAT THEIR CONCERNS AND OUR CONCERNS ON TRAFFIC, INFRASTRUCTURE AND SAFETY ARE ONE IN THE SAME, THE VILLAGE OF STANLEY AND HIS RESOLUTION NUMBER TWO ZERO ZERO ZERO TWO OPPOSING SPECIFICALLY THE EXTENSION OF WAYNE RIDELL LOOP TO MEET SOFTWARE STREET WAS PASSED UNANIMOUSLY BY OUR BOARD.

IT HAS BEEN PROVIDED IN YOUR BATHROOM MATERIALS WHEN YOU WERE DEALT WITH.

CURRENTLY SERVES AS A MAIN THOROUGHFARE FOR DINNER, THE OLDEST SOLDER CREEK PROVIDING ACCESS TO FM SECTION 26 FROM THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD DUE TO TRAFFIC CONDITIONS AND THE LACK OF A MIDDLE TURN LANE AT WAYNE REBEL LOOP.

MANY RESIDENTS OF CANOLES CURRENTLY EXIT THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD BY TRAVELING DOWN RACETRACK LANE TO FAMILY AND A DRIVE AND OVER TO CIRCLE DRIVE OR SAN SOMBRERO DRIVE WHERE THE MIDDLE TURN LANE IS PRESENT ON SM 1626 WE HAVE A NEIGHBORLY RELATIONSHIP WITH AN OLD RESIDENT, BUT EVEN THAT AMOUNT OF ADDED TRAFFIC HAS CAUSED PROBLEMS OVER THE YEARS FOR RESIDENTS OF FAMILY.

AND IF YOU LIVE IN TROUBLE ALONG THOSE ROADS, EVEN APPROXIMATE THE TRAFFIC CREATED BY 750 84 RESIDENTS.

OUR ROADS MIGHT NOT LOOK LIKE THE LIKELY BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY MOST LIKELY ROUTES DURING CERTAIN TIMES OF THE DAY AND YET THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ADDRESSING ANY OF THE TRAFFIC THAT WE HAVE SEEN TO DATE.

SHEET MATERIAL IS OFTEN CONSIDERED PROGRESS AND IMPROVEMENT AND OFFICIALS WITH THOSE

[00:45:01]

MOST AROUND PALLIATIVE AND EXERCISES EXCEPT BY THE CONTROL OVER IT.

GROUPS WHICH ARE BUILT AND MAINTAINED USING PRIMARILY PROPERTY TAX REVENUE OR RESOURCES ARE LIMITED AND THIS CONNECTION SCANDALS DISPARATE TRAFFIC DIRECTLY TO OUR STREETS, MAINTAINED BY OUR TAXPAYERS WITHOUT ANY BENEFIT WHATSOEVER TO OUR RESIDENTS.

IF ALL REQUESTS ARE GRANTED TO THE APPLICANT AND WE ARE FACED WITH A MODERATE HIGH DENSITY DEVELOPMENT AT THE MOUTH OF SECTION TWO A HIGH TRAFFIC ROAD, THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION FOR PROTECTING OUR RESIDENTS WITH REGARD TO THEIR SAFETY AND OUR TAX DOLLAR INVESTMENTS AS IT PERTAINS TO THE ACCESSIBILITY OF OUR ROADS.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION.

OKAY, THANKS VERY MUCH KEVIN.

CHANEY IS FOLLOW UP AND DO AND LET ME SAY ACTUALLY FOR ANYBODY SPEAKING FAMILIALLY MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE SPEAKING VERY CLOSE TO THE PHONE AND ON A PRETTY GOOD PHONE LINE.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT.

SO KEVIN CHENEY NEXT YEAR WE'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES PLEASE.

CAN WE PLEASE HAVE THE CALLERS ON THE PHONE LINE? THEIR PHONES.

THAT WAS THE PROBLEM WITH THAT CAR.

WE HAD OTHER CALLERS WITH THEIR PHONES NOT NEEDED.

SO THANK YOU.

AND THIS IS DAVID KING.

I'M THE CHAIR ON COMMISSION AND I'M JUST WANTING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ALL THE FOLKS KNOW THAT BECAUSE I COULDN'T HEAR MOST OF WHAT WAS JUST SAID.

AND THAT'S IMPORTANT.

IF WE CAN'T HEAR, IF WE CANNOT HEAR WHAT THE SPEAKERS ARE SAYING, THEN IT'S INEFFECTIVE AND WE HAVE TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE.

I WILL REMIND PEOPLE TO KEEP ON MUTING.

I'LL DO THAT EVERY SECOND OR THIRD PERSON.

SO OKAY.

MR KEVIN.

OH, GO AHEAD.

I WAS GOING TO ASK, IS IT POSSIBLE ON THE ADMINISTRATIVE SIDE TO MANUALLY NEW PEOPLE? I KNOW THAT'S A THING IN JUNE THAT ADMINISTRATORS CAN PEOPLE, THIS IS REBECCA HAD THE ONE WHO WAS JUST SPEAKING.

I KNOW HAVE A TRANSCRIPT OF MY MONOLOGUE I JUST MADE.

I COULD SEND IT TO YOU GUYS IF YOU WANTED A SCRIPT.

OKAY.

THAT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA IN OUR, OUR ADDRESSES ARE ON THE ZONING AND PLANNING COMMISSION WEBSITE.

THANK YOU.

AND THANK YOU COREY FOR TELLING US THAT.

AND SO WE'LL GO ONTO KEVIN, GO ONTO KEVIN CHENEY AND I WILL FOR THREE MINUTES AND I WILL REMIND PEOPLE TO KEEP MUTING IF YOU'RE NOT SPEAKING.

THANKS.

KEVIN CHENEY, ARE YOU THERE? AYE.

IS KEVIN CHENEY THERE? IF NOT, THEN WE'LL GO TO GYM.

DO.

OKAY.

JIM, DO ARE YOU THERE? AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES AND SAM PRICHARD WILL FOLLOW.

JIM DO, OH, ARE YOU THERE? YEAH.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES.

HELLO.

OKAY.

HI, MY NAME IS JIM DOE.

WE MOVED HERE IN 2009 AND WE'VE MOVED TO A NICE QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD.

YES, I AM.

HELLO.

OKAY.

IS THAT KEVIN CHENEY? THEN WE'LL GO ON TO JIM.

UH, JIM, YOU HAVE A GOOD ONE TO SPEAK.

OH, HE WAS.

OKAY.

KEVIN SPEAK AND I ASKED THAT EVERYBODY PLEASE BE PREPARED.

I'M GOING TO BE READING OFF ONE OR TWO NAMES AFTER.

SO KEVIN CHENEY, THEN JIM DUES AND SAM PRICHARD.

SO KEVIN CHANEY, GO AHEAD AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

SURE.

I BELIEVE HE'S ON A DELAY.

HE'S GONE AWAY.

YES.

WATCHING LIVE ON THE TELEVISION, THEY NEED TO MUTE THEIR TELEVISION.

IF THEY'RE WATCHING THIS LIVE, THEY NEED TO MUTE IT.

YES, THERE'S A SOUND DELAY.

PEOPLE NEED TO TURN THE TV OFF.

IT NEEDS TO BE, THEY NEED SOME, USE THAT AND JUST LISTEN THROUGH THEIR PHONE BECAUSE IT'S CAUSING THE DELAY.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S GIVING EVERYBODY FEEDBACK.

OKAY.

DON'T RELY ON THE TV BECAUSE IT'S, THERE'S A DELAY.

SO, AND I'LL REMIND PEOPLE THAT THERE IS ALSO A TV DELAY AND PLEASE

[00:50:01]

MUTE YOUR PHONES AND WITH THAT TV, THE WAY PHONES AND ARE WE GETTING BACK TO KEVIN CHENEY? IF NOT, WE'LL GO ON TO JIM DO BECAUSE WE'VE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE.

HEY JIM, DO, ARE YOU THERE? YES, I'M HERE TO KEVIN CHENEY POPPED IN.

RIGHT.

SO WE'LL JUST KEEP ON GOING WITH YOU.

AND THEN SAM PRICHARD, AND THEN BECKY WOULD WITH REBECCA AND JAMES WOOD.

SO GO AHEAD, MR. DO AND YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

UH, MY NAME IS KIM.

DO.

WE MOVED HERE IN 2009 AND HAVE SINCE UH, ADDED TO OUR FAMILY, UH, SIX GRANDCHILDREN, CHILDREN WHO'VE COME HERE TO PLAY IN THE PARK AND TO SWIM IN THE POOL AND TO RIDE BIKES ALONG THE STREET, WHICH RIGHT NOW ARE PRETTY SAFE.

UM, OUR, OUR CONCERN IS THE OPENING OF WAYNE RYEDALE LOOP AND THE INCREASED TRAFFIC THAT'S GOING TO COME FROM THAT.

OUR STREET, UH, NO, NO DRIVEWAYS BACK OUT ONTO WAYNE RYEDALE LOOP.

AND FOR THAT REASON, UH, THE SPEED LIMIT IS 35 OR 45 IF YOU CAN DO IT.

AND MOST OF THE PEOPLE, ALMOST ALL THE ONES THAT LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD DON'T DRIVE THE 35, BUT THAT'S, THAT'S EVEN TOO FAST.

BUT THAT'S NOT THE CASE HERE.

IF, IF WE HAVE A CUT THROUGH, IT'S GOING TO BE TERRIBLE.

AND I KNOW THAT BECAUSE EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD THAT HAS THEM ENDS UP COMPLAINING JUST LIKE THE MEADOWS DEAD.

WE ALSO HAVE A SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL AND A MIDDLE SCHOOL THAT ARE ALREADY OVERCROWDED.

AND, AND, UH, THE THAT THEY DEVELOPED FOR THIS, UH, 750 UNITS, UH, INSTALLATION, UH, DIDN'T INCLUDE ANY OF THE NEW ONES THAT ARE GOING TO BE ON.

SO THE EAST OF, OF, UH, THIS COMMUNITY ON 1626, UH, ALL THAT TRAFFIC IS GOING TO END UP CUTTING THROUGH OUR NEIGHBORHOODS SO THEY CAN GET ONTO 16, 26 AND GO EAST FAST.

AND WHAT WE DON'T NEED IS, IS THE LINES BACKED UP HALFWAY DOWN, WAYNE, RIGHT OUT LOOP LIKE THE ARE BACKED UP HALFWAY DOWN SOUTH FIRST AT NIGHT.

WE, WE'VE WHAT WE NEED OUR SINGLE FAMILY HOME WHEN I IMAGINE, I IMAGINE AUSTIN HAVE BEING HOUSES AND COMMUNITIES RATHER THAN APARTMENT STUFFED INTO PLACES WHERE THEY CAN FIT, BUT WHETHER OR NOT NEEDED, WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SINGLE FAMILY HOUSES NOW IN THE AREA.

UH, AND, AND AS FAR AS THE CREEK GOES, UH, IT'S ALREADY FLOODING MORE THAN WHAT IT USED TO.

AND THAT'S ALL BECAUSE OF ALL THIS DENSIFICATION.

WHAT WE NEED IS THE BOARD TO LOOK AT THIS AND TO FACTOR IN ALL OF THOSE AND ALL OF THOSE COMMUNITIES THAT ARE BEING PUT IN RIGHT NOW AND SEE IF WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE THIS DONE.

AND, AND AS REBECCA HOWE POINTED OUT, IF THEY PUT THIS ROAD CONNECTION THROUGH, THEY'RE GOING TO CLOSE OFF THE ROAD THROUGH SAN LEANNA.

THAT'S WHAT THEY VOTED ON.

THEY DON'T WANT TO DO IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALWAYS HELPED US.

BYE.

BUT IF, IF THAT ROAD GOES, THEY WILL CLOSE OFF SAN LEANNA, WHICH WILL MAKE IT EVEN WORSE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

SO I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

OKAY, THANK YOU KEVIN AND CINE, ARE YOU THERE? YES.

I'M SORRY.

I GOT CONFUSED.

THE TUMOR DELAYS AND I PUSHED, I PUSHED THE BUTTON TO KILL MY PHONE RATHER THAN UNMUTE.

IT'S UP.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

OKAY.

I'LL LEARN IN HERE.

SO YOU HAVE TIME AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES AND THEN AFTER YOU WILL BE SAM PRICHARD AND THEN REBECCA AND BECKY WOOD AND JAMES WOOD.

GREAT.

I DID SEND IN A SPREADSHEET THAT IF YOU COULD BRING THEM UP, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

MEANWHILE, I'D LIKE TO SAY THAT I DO AGREE WITH ALL MY, UH, THE TRAFFICKING SIGNS AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS AND THE CONGESTION CONCERNS THAT HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY BROUGHT UP.

UM, BUT I WANTED TO TAKE A LITTLE DIFFERENT TAKE ON THIS.

UM, I'VE LIVED IN LA FOR 10 YEARS AND UM, I'VE SEEN A LOT OF NEW STUFF GO IN SINCE THE TIMELINE MOVED.

THERE WAS A LOT OF THOSE ARE APARTMENT COMPLEXES.

AND SO IN THIS SPREADSHEET THAT I PUT UP, UM, THAT I SENT IN THE FIRST 21 ENTRIES ARE APARTMENTS THAT ARE APARTMENT COMPLEXES THAT ARE WITHIN TWO MODELS OF THE PROPERTY THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, THE ZONING OFF.

UM,

[00:55:01]

UM, SO IF YOU GO THROUGH, AND I GOT MY STUFF FROM APARTMENT.COM IF YOU COUNT HOW MANY UNITS THAT PEO, THERE'S, UH, 6,000, 459 UNITS.

IT HAS GONE IN AND THE BETTER AROUND THE AREA OF THE, THE PLACE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

AND UM, SO IT'S ALSO PROBABLY, I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THE NUMBER HERE.

I HAVE EIGHT 53 UNITS THAT ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION, THE LAST THROUGH ENTRIES.

OKAY.

APARTMENT COMPLEX THAT ARE CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

AND WHEN THEY FINISH, WHEN THEY SHARE ABOUT THE ONE THAT UH, 68, 26 THE LAST MONTH AND DON'T SAY THAT TONY WROTE, I HAVE THREE 72 LISTED THERE, BUT I THINK IT MAY BE GREATER NUMBER OF UNITS THAT ARE GOING IN THERE.

UM, AND OTHER UNITS THAT ARE THERE FEED THOUSAND 655 OF THEM HAVE BEEN BUILT AFTER 2013 SO THERE'S ALREADY IN THE AREA, A LOT OF APARTMENT COMPLEXES.

AND I ALSO INCLUDED, UH, EXISTING VACANCIES THAT WERE ON A SPECIFIC DATE BECAUSE THAT CHANGES AS TIME GOES ON.

SO WE HAVE A LOT OF APARTMENT COMPLEXES IN THE AREA ALREADY.

AUSTIN HAS BUILT A LOTS OF APARTMENT COMPLEXES.

FEBRUARY 28TH, UH, AUSTIN STATEMENT ARTICLE CLAIMS IN THE PAST 10 YEARS, THEY VOTED OVER 10,000 APARTMENT UNITS A YEAR IN AUSTIN AND THEY WERE ON TRACK TO ADD ANOTHER 1212 TO, THEY HAD ANOTHER 25,000 UNDER CONSTRUCTION AS OF FEBRUARY 20TH.

THOSE THINGS MAY CHANGE BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT SITUATION, BUT AT ANY RATE, UM, SO THE APARTMENTS IN THIS AREA, OUR LADY, WHICH I DIDN'T SEE MUCH CHANGING IN THE WAY OF INFRASTRUCTURE TO ACCOMMODATE ALL THE NEW FOLKS THAT ARE DRIVING AND MOBILIZING THEM THERE.

AND NOT ONLY WERE THEY NEW APARTMENT COMPLEXES BUT THEY'RE NEW DEVELOPMENTS AS WELL.

IT'S ABOUT PART MEADOW, ONE OF THE MPS AND THERE'S A NUMBER OF ASSISTED LIVING AND NURSING HOMES THAT ARE ALSO BUILT IN THE AREA WITHIN THE ONE MILE RADIUS I TALKED ABOUT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH AND I'M VERY HAPPY THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO JOIN US.

NEXT IS SAM PRITCHARD, FOLLOWED BY BECKY, REBECCA AND JAY AND JAMES.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

THIS IS SAM PRITCHARD.

UM, GOOD EVENING COMMISSION MEMBERS AND THOSE OF SLAUGHTER CREEK NEIGHBORS.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIME.

I'VE BEEN A HOMEOWNER IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD FOR SEVEN YEARS AND I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY.

WE ARE RAISING OUR SON HERE AND PLAN TO BE HERE WELL INTO HIS HIGH SCHOOL YEAR.

WE'LL UTILIZE THE COMMUNITY PARK PLAYGROUND AND SOON TO BE SPLASH PAD EVERY WEEK, SOMETIMES TIMES, MULTIPLE TIMES.

THESE AREAS ARE THE ONES SO CLOSE TO THE PROPOSED PASS THROUGH STREETS THAT WE'RE ALL DISCUSSING.

OUR COMMUNITY USES THIS LOCATION TO MEET AND CELEBRATE EVENTS THAT BRING US ALL CLOSER TOGETHER AND THIS MAIN THOROUGHFARE IS OFTEN LOCATION FOR EVENTS LIKE NATIONAL NIGHT OUT 4TH OF JULY PARADE IN MANY OTHER CELEBRATIONS.

AFTER HEARING THE ITEMS SET FORTH AS MAJOR CONCERNS REGARDING THE SAFETY OF NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN, PRESERVATION OF HOME VALUES AND OVERALL QUALITY OF LIFE, I WANT TO PRESENT A SEEMINGLY STRAIGHTFORWARD SOLUTION.

I CAN GLADLY FORWARD REFERENCE PHOTOS OF THE PAST THROUGH AREA WE WISH TO REMAIN CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC.

WE WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT THE DEVELOPER OF THIS PROJECT MODIFY BUILDING ORIENTATION TO PERMANENTLY BLOCKED THIS PASS THROUGH AS A POSSIBILITY BUT AT THE VERY LEAST INSTALL A NON PASSABLE GATE IF WE CAN HAVE THIS AGREE TO ALONG WITH DOWN ZONING OF THE CLOSEST NEIGHBORING BUILDINGS TO MS THREE HAVE OUR DRAINAGE CONCERNS ADDRESSED AS WELL AS THE ISSUE OF DARK SKIES DOWN LIGHTING.

AGREEABLE, I FEEL AS THE NOLS HAVE SLOTTED CRE WITHDRAWALS AND FURTHER DISPUTES WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AND ULTIMATELY ENCOURAGE OVERALL COMMUNITY CONNECTIVITY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

ALL THE BEST AND STAY SAFE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND A REMINDER TOO, THERE WAS A TV DELAY.

SO TURN OFF YOUR TV OR DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO IT TOO MUCH CAUSE IT'S GOING TO THROW YOU OFF AND MUTE PHONES.

AND NEXT IS BECKY WOOD WITH REBECCA AND JAMES WOOD AND THEN FOLLOWED BY ERIN SIMMONS, THEN KAREN HAYDEN AND THEN YOU'LL ALL EACH HAVE THREE MINUTES.

[01:00:01]

THANK YOU.

HELLO, THIS IS BECKY WOOD AND I FIRST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR UM, GIVING, UH, NOT ONLY MYSELF BUT OUR COMMUNITY.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO, UM, SPEAK WITH YOU TONIGHT.

UH, WE MOVED INTO THE, UH, MOVE TO AUSTIN AND MOVED SPECIFICALLY INTO SOUTH AUSTIN BECAUSE SOUTH AUSTIN WAS A, UM, BEAUTIFUL, THRIVING, YOU KNOW, RESIDENTIAL AREA.

UM, WE MOVED HERE BEFORE SOUTH PARK MEADOWS EVEN WAS, UH, UH, WAS HERE.

AND WE ARE THRILLED THAT SOUTH PARK MEADOWS HAS COME BECAUSE IT IS, UM, JUST A, UH, A BEAUTIFUL ADDITION SHOPPING AREA.

SO, BUT OUR COMMUNITY, THE OPPORTUNITY, WHAT WE'RE, WHAT WE WILL NOT, UM, UH, WE MOVED INTO AND WHAT WE WILL NOT ACCEPT HAVING COMPLEX BEHIND DIRECTLY BEHIND OUR HOUSE.

NOT ONLY WILL THIS AFFECT THE COMMUNITY, BUT SPECIFICALLY FOR, UM, FOR OUR HOUSE.

WE ARE, WE HAVE A 20 FOOT UTILITY EASEMENT BETWEEN, UM, UH, THE BACK OF OUR FENCE AND THE BARBED WIRE FENCE, WHICH STARTS WITH THE CONTEXT WE'LL START AND TO HAVE, UM, LOSE ALL THE WILDLIFE BACK THERE, ALL THE BEAUTY OF OUR, OUR COMMUNITY AND HAVE A 60 FOOT TALL, UM, COMPLEX BACK THERE WILL CHANGE THE DYNAMICS OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD COMPLETELY.

AND I'M JUST GONNA LIST SOME OF THE THINGS THAT PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY ADDRESSED.

INCREASED TRAFFIC WITH THE, WITH THE CUT-THROUGH, UM, SAFETY OF OUR RESIDENTS.

YOU KNOW, OUR COLDEST SECOND IN PARTICULAR HAS A LOT OF CHILDREN THAT GREW UP HERE FROM, FROM LITTLE, AND THE CHILDREN HAVE ALWAYS HAD A SAFE AREA TO PLAY IN, UM, TO WALK TO THE POOL.

YOU KNOW, NO DEBT, NO DANGER OF ANYTHING WITH THE CUP.

TRUE OF POTENTIALLY WAYNE RIDELL.

UM, BUT THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN IS PARAMOUNT.

AND I WOULD JUST HATE TO SEE A CHILD, YOU KNOW, HIT BY A SPEEDING CAR THAT'S GOING THROUGH BECAUSE SOMEONE IS, IS RUSHING THROUGH BECAUSE THERE'S SO
