UM, AND THE B SECTION FOR DISCUSSION.

UM, ARE THERE ANY COMMISSIONERS THAT WISH TO SPEAK TO ANY DISCUSSION OR ANY CONSENT ITEMS OR PULL THEM FOR THE DISCUSSION AGENDA? RAISE YOUR HAND, RECOGNIZE THE COMMISSIONERS ARE AND THEN TOUCH KRISHA YOUR RECORDS.

UM, I JUST WANTED TO SPEAK TO, I DIDN'T CLEAN FOR ALL THOSE ITEMS FROM THE AGENDA BECAUSE I HAD SOME QUESTIONS, BUT THE APPLICANT, UM, THE APPLICANT HAD INITIALLY INDICATED THAT THEY WOULD WANT TO CREATE AND THEY INTENDED TO CREATE SOME WORKFORCE HOUSING HERE.

AND I REALLY BE SURE THAT INDENTION AND I KNOW THAT THE COMMUNITY OFFICIAL AND INSURANCE WELL HIGHER ED, WHY WE SEE IF THE APPLICANT WILL BE WILLING TO MEMORIALIZE THIS INTENT IN THE FORM OF A COMMITMENT WITH THE COMMUNITY.

AND I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH THE REPRESENTATIVE, THE APPLICANT.

SO THIS QUESTION WAS ANSWERED FOR ME, AND WE INDICATED THAT THEY HAVE A LOT COMING TO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE COMMUNITY AT POINT, I JUST WANT TO RESPECT THE COMMISSIONER TIME.

AND SINCE MY QUESTIONS WERE ANSWERED, I DID NOT WANT TO GET THIS OFF THE CONSENT AGENDA.

HOWEVER, HAVING SAID THAT, I THINK THAT THE INTENTION TO BUILD WORKFORCE HOUSING NEEDS AS PART OF THE CONSIDERATION FOR THIS CASE.

AND SINCE I DO NOT HAVE BLACK YOUNG THAT AT THIS MOMENT, OR AT LEAST THERE'S NOT A, THERE'S AN INDENTION, BUT WE DO NOT SEE AN AGREEMENT.

I WILL BE WORKING AGAINST THIS ITEM.

SO JUST FOR THIS PIECE OF THE CONSENT AGENDA, I WILL BE, IF IT CAN BE INDICATED THAT I'M VOTING AGAINST THIS ITEM, UM, THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SEE, AND I HOPE THAT IT WAS A LITTLE AWKWARD.

UM, AND THE APPLICANT WILL CONSIDER THIS QUESTION AS A GOOD, SO THANK YOU CHAIR FOR 19 YEARS, THE COMMISSIONERS ARE COMMISSIONER SHAW AND THEN, UM, SWITCHED VIEWS ON IT.

UM, MR. SHAW, GO AHEAD.

SO I JUST NOTICED THAT IT CAME LATE IN THE DAY.

UH, THERE WAS SOMEBODY RESPONDING TO A LOT OF, BE 10 ON THE 84 RAINY CP THAT SAID THEY DID, UH, THERE, THE NEIGHBORHOOD, RANDY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

THEY DIDN'T, THEY'RE SAYING THEY DIDN'T RECEIVE NOTICE.

UH, I DON'T KNOW IF WE NEED TO, I DON'T KNOW IF THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO RECEIVE NOTICE OR WHAT MIGHT'VE BEEN GOING ON THERE, BUT, UH, I JUST WANT TO PUT THAT OUT THERE THAT THERE WAS A CLAIM THAT THERE'S MAYBE SOME NOTIFICATION ISSUES.

UH, I AM NOT SEEING IT.

THIS IS AN EMAIL THAT GOT SENT TO YOU.

UM, YEAH, LET ME, UH, GIVE ME A SECOND, UH, UNDER RECEIPT OF ANY EMAILS, VICE-CHAIR KASI, ARE YOU IN RECEIPT OF ANY EMAILS? SO IT CAME FROM SANDRA HARDEEN, HR, A D I N.

AND I'M LOOKING AT WHO IT WENT TO, UH, WENT TO YOU AND 14 OTHER, YEAH, IT'S AT FIVE 30, SO IT WAS LATE.

UH, BUT IT'S IN MY BC EMAIL.

UH, WE WENT TO ALL OF US.

UM, I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY ELSE CAN SEE IT, BUT IT WAS TODAY AT FIVE 34.

I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO CHECK IT SINCE THEN.

I GOT IT.

UH, DO WE HAVE THE APPLICANT ON THE LINE IT'S RIVERA? IS THAT SOMETHING WE'RE ABLE TO DO? SURE.

COMMISSION WISE ON ANDROID.

WE DO HAVE THE APPLICANT, MR. KENDALL ON THE LINE.

UM, CAN THE APPLICANT SPEAK TO THIS? UH, WE HAVE, UM, CAN, I'M SORRY, CAN YOU READ THAT NAME AND ASSOCIATION ONE MORE TIME? COMMISSIONER SHAW.

UH, IT'S IT'S SANDRA HARDEN, H A R D I N.

AND THEY'RE, UM, SERVED ON THE BOARD.

SHE SERVED ON THE BOARD OF THE RANDY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

SO I'M NOT SURE IF SHE'S CURRENTLY CURRENTLY REPRESENTING THEM, BUT SHE'S, UH, UH, SHE SAID SHE'S SERVED PAST TENSE ANYWAY.

SURE.

COMMISSIONER, WHEN HE'S ON RIVER RIVER, WE ALSO HAVE HAD THE, UH, STAFF MEMBER, MS. JOHNS AS WELL.

OKAY.

CAN WE HEAR FROM STAFF AND HEAR IF THEY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS? AND IF THE, UM, IF THE ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THIS, UM, THIS IS HER NINJA YEAH.

DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT.

UM, I'M THE SITE PLAN REVIEW FOR THIS NOTIFICATIONS SHOULD HAVE BEEN SENT.

I WANT TO DOUBLE CHECK ON AMANDA RIGHT NOW SINCE I'M HOME, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I AM HAVING ISSUES WITH AMANDA, BUT NOTIFICATION SHOULD HAVE BEEN SENT.

UM, IF SHE IS WITH A REGISTERED NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, SHE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN IT, BUT IF IT'S NOT A REGISTERED NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, IT COULD BE THAT MAYBE SHE DID NOT GET NOTIFICATIONS, BUT, UM, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME HEARING OF THIS.

OKAY.

CLEAR FROM THE APPLICANT.

I'M NOT SURE IF THEY'RE ON THE LINE, THEY SHOULD BE, BUT, UM, I KNOW THAT THEY DON'T DEAL WITH NOTIFICATION.

[00:10:03]

SURE.

I JUST WANT TO HEAR IF THEY'VE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH ANYBODY OUTSIDE OF THEM, I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN IN PRETTY CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE APPLICANT.

UM, IT'S THE SAME APPLICANT FOR ALL THE RAINY STREET PROJECTS.

UM, AND I DON'T THINK THERE HAS BEEN BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN NO INTERESTED PARTIES WITH THIS PARTICULAR ONE.

UM, AGAIN, THE ONE I THINK THAT WE ALL KEEP CONFUSING IT WITH IS, UM, THE UNBELIEVABLE ONE.

AND THIS IS A NEW ONE.

AND AGAIN, THERE'S NO INTERESTED PARTIES, UM, IS THE FIRST TIME HEARING IS ANY OF THIS.

SO, UM, COMMISSIONER SHAW AT THE EMAIL AND I DON'T, IS IT, DOES IT SAY THAT THERE WAS A MISS NOTIFICATION? NO, IT'S JUST SAYING THEY NEVER RECEIVED A ZONING NOTICE.

SO IT'S PROBABLY, UM, THEY'RE THEY'RE RESIDENTS.

UH, THEY SAID THEY LIVE AT MULAGO CONDOS.

UH, SO MAYBE THAT THEY'RE SPEAKING ABOUT A NOTICE TO THEM PERSONALLY AND NOT THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IS KINDA, UM, I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY SAID THAT THEY DIDN'T RECEIVE IT.

YEAH.

SECOND PARAGRAPH.

UH, I NOW SEE, UM, THAT YOU HAVE IT IT'S ON YOUR AGENDA AND FOR WHICH WE NEVER RECEIVED A ZONING NOTICE.

OKAY, WELL, THIS WOULDN'T BE A TAPE.

A, THIS IS A YOUTH, RIGHT? IT'S A STEVE, IT'S A CONDITIONAL USE.

RIGHT.

BUT ANYWAY, YEAH.

I'M NOT SURE IF WE'RE SUPPOSED TO NOTIFY WITHIN A CERTAIN DISTANCE FROM THE PROPERTY OR NOT.

I GUESS THAT'S WHAT I WAS HOPING STAFF COULD ANSWER.

YES WE ARE.

AND I'M TRYING TO CHECK NOW, BUT AGAIN, I'M AMANDA.

I DON'T KNOW IF OUR INTERNAL SYSTEM IS GIVING US ISSUES.

AND SO I CAN'T VERIFY, I'M SITTING IN FRONT OF MY, FIGHTING WITH IT RIGHT NOW, TRYING TO VERIFY THAT IT WENT OUT, BUT IT SHOULD HAVE GONE OUT.

UM, WE ALWAYS DO NOTIFICATION, UM, STAFF, IF WE PASS THIS TONIGHT AND YOU WERE TO FIGURE OUT TOMORROW, OR WHENEVER THAT THERE, THAT NOTICE DID NOT GO OUT WITH THIS WITH OUR VOTE, BE VOIDED.

AND THEN THAT PROCESS WOULD JUST START OVER.

UH, I'M NOT SURE IF THAT CAN HAPPEN.

I CAN ANDREW SPEAK TO THAT.

SURE.

COMMISSION LAYS ON ANDREW VERA.

IT'S THE REASON WE'RE TAKING A BIT OF TIME ON THIS IS THAT WE ARE THE VINYL AUTHORITY ON THIS.

IF THERE'S NOTIFICATION, IT WOULD CAUSE THE ITEM TO BE REHEARD BY THE COMMISSION.

OKAY.

SO IF IT HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED CORRECTLY, WE COULD.

OKAY, COOL.

DO YOU HAVE THAT AS MY UNDERSTANDING AS WELL THEN? YES.

IF I FIND OUT THAT THIS GUY BEEN NOTIFIED PROPERLY, I CAN DEFINITELY BE IN CONTACT WITH ANDREW.

GREAT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I'M GOING TO LEAVE THIS ONE ON FOR CONSENT.

UM, ANY COMMISSIONER, WHICH IS TO OBJECT, WE CAN, UH, DISCUSS IT IF THEY LIKE.

UM, SO, UH, I WANT TO JUST ONE MORE TIME WITHOUT READING ALL THE CASES THAT ARE ON CONSENT, WE CAN JUST SAY THAT THE ONLY ONES LEFT FOR DISCUSSION ARE, UH, B ONE B TWO, WHICH ARE THE HEFLIN LANE HEARINGS AND, UH, UH, ITEM B FIVE, WHICH IS 52 OH ONE EAST MARTIN LUTHER KING.

UH, WE HAVE, UM, MS. FOX HERE WITH US.

YES.

GOOD EVENING.

CHAIR AND PLANNING COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS KATHLEEN FOX.

I'M WITH THE PLANNING AND ZONING DEPARTMENT.

I'M HERE FOR DISCUSSION ITEM B ONE NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN AMENDMENT CASE NPA DASH 2019 DASH ZERO ZERO ONE 5.01.

THE ADDRESS IS FIVE ZERO ONE ZERO AND FIVE ONE ZERO TWO HEFLIN LANE.

THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED WITHIN THE EAST ML K COMBINED NEIGHBORHOOD PLANNING AREA.

UH, THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP CHANGE REQUEST IS FROM SINGLE FAMILY TO HIGHER DENSITY, SINGLE FAMILY TO CONSTRUCT 35 RESIDENTIAL UNITS.

THE LONG RANGE PLANNING STAFF RECOMMENDS THIS CHANGE BASED ON HOUSING POLICIES AND TEXTS FOUND IN THE IMAGINE AUSTIN COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, THE EAST MLK COMBINED NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN AND AUSTIN STRATEGIC HOUSING BLUEPRINT, WHICH SUPPORTS INFILL HOUSING AND A DIVERSITY OF HOUSING TYPES.

SPECIFICALLY FROM THE EAST MLK COMBINED NEIGHBORHOOD OBJECTIVE 5.1 STATES ALLOW A MIX OF RESIDENTIAL TYPES ON LARGER TRACKS HAVING ACCESS TO MAJOR ROADS AND ACTION, 44 ALLOW MIXED RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL LOTS SINGLE FAMILY ON THE LARGE THEY CAN, UH, EXCUSE ME, I'M A LARGE VACANT PARCEL OFF OF EAST MLK AND HEFLIN.

THE EAST MLK COMBINED CONTACT TEAM SUBMITTED A LETTER, WHICH IS NEUTRAL ON THIS REQUEST AND SHOULD BE PART OF YOUR BACKUP.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ALRIGHT.

AND DO WE HAVE MS. SHAFFER IN HERE? I'M SORRY.

THAT WAS A DIFFERENT CASE.

NOPE.

YOU'RE THERE ON BEFORE AS WELL.

OTHER CHAMPION, ARE YOU WITH US? YES.

YES.

GO AHEAD.

HEATHER CHAPLAIN, HEATHER CHAPMAN PLANNING AND ZONING DEPARTMENT.

THE RELATED CASE IS ITEMS FOR CASE NUMBER 2020 DASH ZERO ZERO TWO TO THE SAME PROPERTY, 50 PIN AND 5,102 HALF THE MINE.

THE ZONING REQUEST IS TO GO FROM S F A N P TO F F AND P.

THE PROPERTY IS A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN FIVE ACRES IN SIZE.

IT'S THE NEXT PAGE? SORRY.

COMPUTER CRAZINESS.

THE PROPERTY IS ON THE NORTH SIDE OF HEFLIN LANE BETWEEN EAST AND OKAY BOULEVARD IN LIBREVILLE ROAD.

IT'S TWO LOTS THAT ARE COMBINED AND UNDEVELOPED EXCEPT FOR A CONCRETE DRAINAGE CHANNEL.

THE DRAINAGE CHANNEL CROSSES THE ENTIRE SITE AND CONTAINS THE HUNDRED YEAR FLOOD PLAIN.

THERE ARE SOME OTHER AREAS OF THE SITE THAT ARE IMPEDED BY FLOOD PLAIN, UH, SURROUNDING THE PROPERTY.

IT'S ALL SS THREE TO THE IMMEDIATE, UH, WEST, NORTHEAST AND SOUTH.

THERE IS A PROPERTY LOCATED, UH, SOUTHEAST OF THE, OF THE ZONING TRACKS AT THE CORNER OF HEFLIN AND LIBERTYVILLE.

THAT IS ZONED SIX AND IT HAS HIGH DENSITY.

RESIDENTIAL,

[00:20:01]

APPROXIMATELY A BLOCK TO THE SOUTH OF THE PROPERTY IS ANOTHER AREA THAT'S FOUND F F FOR A M P SMALL BLOCK, SINGLE FAMILY.

YOU'LL NOTICE THAT AT THE NORTH END OF THE PROPERTY ELMS GROVE DRIVE, THAT ENDS INTO THE PROPERTY.

THERE'S BEEN CONCERNS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THAT WOULD BE EXTENDED THROUGH THE PROPERTY TO HEFLIN OR OUT TO MLK.

I'VE TALKED TO AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT AND THEY'VE CONFIRMED THAT THERE ARE NO PLANS OR REQUIREMENTS TO EXTEND OR CONNECT FROM GROVE TO THIS PROPERTY OR IT THROUGH THAT IS SUPPORTING THE SF SIX AND FEE REQUESTS.

UM, THIS IS AN ERROR IN MY REPORT.

AND AS KATHLEEN SAID, IT'S APPROXIMATELY 34 TO 35 UNITS THAT THEY'RE PROPOSING.

THEY'RE PROPOSING DETACHED HOUSING OR DUPLEX, DUPLEX STYLE, NOT TOWNHOUSE CONDOMINIUM UNITS.

THIS IS THE MOST RESTRICTIVE RESIDENTIAL CATEGORY THAT WOULD ALLOW THAT MANY UNITS.

AND IT ALSO ALLOWS THE UNIT TO BE DEVELOPED IN A CLUSTERED MANNER, WHICH WITH THE DRAINAGE FEATURE CROSSING THE PROPERTY AND CLUSTERING, THE DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE A BETTER USE OF THE SITE AND THE CURRENT ZONING OF SF FOR A PERMIT PERMIT DEVELOPMENT OF SMALL LOT SINGLE FAMILY.

BUT THESE LOTS WOULD HAVE TO BE SUBDIVIDED AND THE CONFIGURATION WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT ON, UH, THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THIS LOT.

AGAIN, WITH THE DRAINAGE FACILITY, I'VE RECEIVED CORRESPONDENCE IN OPPOSITION AND THAT IS ATTACHED.

THE AGENT IS HERE AND I BELIEVE THERE'S ALSO SOMEBODY FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHO IS AVAILABLE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, MR. VERA, I'M ONLY SHOWING, UH, FERRIS CLEMENTS AND RICHARD'S SUBTLE OR JUST HER TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM.

IS THERE A SPEAKER AGAINST SURE.

COMMISSION? I BELIEVE IT'S MR. SHARP.

OKAY.

UM, WE'LL PUT MR. SHARP, YOU'LL BE IN THE QUEUE AFTER THE APPLICANTS, UM, PROPOSAL.

UM, FIRST CLEMENTS ARE YOU GO IN THE LINE? SHE, THE APPLICANTS ARE BACTERIAL HOUSING AND RUN DOOR.

I'M SORRY.

I WAS READING FROM THE WRONG, WRONG LIST.

UM, VICTORIA AUSSIE, UH, DO YOU WANT TO GO AHEAD AND DO YOUR PRESENTATION TOLD THAT THEY ARE HAVING SOME TECHNICAL ISSUES? CAN WE, WE'RE WAITING FOR VICTORIA HOSPITAL ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT.

ALL RIGHT.

I AM NOT ABLE TO RAISE ANYBODY.

MMM.

TELL YOU WHAT, UH, OKAY.

DO WE HAVE, UM, OUR OTHER DISCUSSION CASE THIS EVENING IS THE SAME APPLICANT.

UM, CAN I MENTION ONE HAVING THEM CALL BACK IN? I'LL JUST BE A SECOND.

OKAY.

STAND BY FOLKS.

OKAY.

HELLO, VICTORIA HALSEY.

IS THAT YOU THAT'S ME.

OKAY.

YOU HAVE SIX MINUTES.

GO AHEAD ON YOUR PRESENTATION.

OKAY.

UM, AND JUST REAL QUICK, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THAT THE GENERAL PUBLIC CANNOT HEAR OR SEE

[00:25:01]

THIS PUBLIC HEARING.

I DON'T KNOW, IS THAT VIA THE WEBCAST OR ARE YOU LOOKING AT THE CABLE? I'VE HEARD THAT IT'S VIA THE WEBCAST OR CABLE.

THERE'S NOTHING AVAILABLE.

SO ONLY THE PEOPLE HOLD THAT I'VE DIALED IN TO THIS NUMBER AND THE COMMISSIONERS.

ARE YOU ABLE TO HEAR OR SEE WHAT IS GOING ON? I AM GETTING A TEXT MESSAGES THAT PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO SEE THE CABLE.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE ISSUE IS THERE, BUT WE'LL GO AHEAD AND PROCEED.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT.

UM, OKAY.

UH, VICTORIA HOUSEY WITH SERVER DESIGN ON BEHALF OF THE PROPERTY.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE ARE, Y'ALL SEEING MY PRESENTATION RIGHT NOW.

YES, WE ARE.

OKAY.

UH, THE, UH, THIS IMAGE PROVIDES GEOGRAPHIC CONTEXT FOR THE LOCATION OF THE TRACK.

WELL, MS. HOUSLEY, I'M SORRY.

UM, IF YOU CAN GIVE THE, UH, THE AB STAFF HERE, A CUE AS TO WHICH SLIDE TO HEAD TO BEFORE, UH, BEFORE YOU INTRODUCE IT.

OKAY, BYE.

I LIKE GEOGRAPHIC CONTEXT FOR THE LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT TRACKS IN RELATION TO THE IMAGINE AUSTIN CENTERS CORRIDORS AS WELL AS EXISTING TRANSIT STOP AND CREEK BUFFERS, THAT THE SUBJECT TRACTORS THEY'RE HIGHLIGHTED IN BLUE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

RIGHT? HELLO.

WE'RE HERE.

WE SEE THE, UH, THE BLUE OR THE PURPLE HIGHLIGHTED AREA.

OKAY.

UH, THE SUBJECT TRACKS COMBINED ARE 5.03 ACRES OF LAND THAT IS UNDEVELOPED.

AND THE KEY POINT HERE IS THAT THERE'S NO DISPLACEMENT OF ANY RESIDENTS WITH THIS PROPOSED PROJECT.

UM, THE SITE IS A GREEN SITE AND AS WELL, SITUATED TO RECEIVE A DEVELOPMENT AT THIS LOCATION.

UM, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

OKAY.

WE SEE IT EAST MLK COMBINED FUTURE LAND USE MAP, DESIGNATES THIS PROPERTY FOR SINGLE FAMILY USE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE LET ME SEE IT.

AND THE REQUEST IS TO AMEND THE PHLEGM TO HIGHER DENSITY, SINGLE FAMILY, WHICH WILL MAINTAIN A SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER AND LOOK, AND AT THE SAME TIME WILL ALLOW A GREATER NUMBER OF HOMES TO BE BUILT THAN WHAT WOULD BE ALLOWED IN ANY STANDARD SF, THREE TYPES OF ZONING DISTRICTS OR DEVELOPMENT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

CAN YOU SEE IT? OKAY.

THE ZONING IS CURRENTLY SF FORAY, WHICH IS A MEDIUM DENSITY, SINGLE FAMILY DESIGNATION.

IT ALLOWS FOR LAND TO BE SUBDIVIDED INTO SMALL, URBAN LOT.

UM, AND THESE LOTS WOULD BE SMALLER THAN WHAT WOULD TYPICALLY BE ALLOWED UNDER SFD ZONING.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE SEE IT.

I REASSESSED THIS TO CHANGE THE ZONING TO SF SIX, AND WHAT'S MORE, MOST IMPORTANT ABOUT THE ZONING DISTRICT IS THAT IT ALLOWS DEVELOPMENT OF HOUSES WITHOUT REQUIRING EACH HOUSE TO BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL LOT.

AND THIS IS VERY HELPFUL BECAUSE IT ALLOWS FOR A GREAT DEAL OF FLEXIBILITY TO WORK AROUND TREES, CREEKS, EASEMENTS, AND OTHER LAND FEATURES THAT ARE SIGNIFICANT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE SEE THAT.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY ABOUT THE LOCATION OF THIS PROPERTY IS THAT IT FRONTS TESLIN LANE, WHICH IS A TRANSIT PRIORITY NETWORK IDENTIFIED BY THE OFFICE, BOSTON STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN, TRANSIT PRIORITY NETWORKS FOR ROADWAYS THAT TAKE PRIORITY AND BEING IMPROVED FOR MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS AT THIS TIME, AUSTIN AND AUSTIN, THAT INCLUDES PEDESTRIAN BICYCLE AND VEHICULAR MODES OF TRANSPORTATION.

ADDITIONALLY, THE PROPERTY HAS ACCESS TO YOUR EXISTING TRANSIT SERVICE AND AS CLOSE TO THE, UH, PROPOSED BUS, RAPID TRANSIT ON MLK, WHICH IS A QUARTER MILE AWAY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE HAVE IT.

I AM LOOKING WEST WITH THE SUBJECT TRACKS ON THE RIGHT.

YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE BRIDGE WHERE FORT BRANCH CREEK CROSSES UNDER HEFLIN LANE.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

OKAY.

I'M LOOKING EAST TOWARDS THE INTERSECTION WITH WEBER VILLE ROAD.

THE CONSTRUCTION THAT IS SEEN ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE IMAGE IS A NEW HOME THAT WAS RECENTLY BUILT WITHIN THE LAST YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE GO AHEAD.

I'M SORRY.

THAT'S HOW WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE AN EMERGENCY RECESS, UM, TO ADDRESS SOME TECHNICAL ISSUES.

UH, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND STANDING BY, UM, WE ARE ON THE ZONING COMPARISON CHART, YOU CAN PICK UP WHERE WE LEFT OFF CRUSHERS AT A SIX 30, 32.

WE'RE GOING TO RECESS UNTIL

[00:30:01]

SIX 45 ONLY WOW, WHAT YOU CAN'T ADD.

AND THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO YOU.

GET YOUR HEAD IN THE CLOUDS AND YOUR HEART IS BULLET PROOF.

GOT HIM A THING YOU WANT, BUT YOU DON'T CARE CAUSE YOU NEVER.
