I'VE KNOWN RUDY SINCE I WAS A CHILD.

ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO SHARE CULTURE AND SHARE GOOD ENERGY.

HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE CHILDREN OF EAST AUSTIN OR INNUMERABLE METS RECREATION CENTER HAS ALWAYS BEEN A REFUGE REFUGE FOR KIDS FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

HELLO, CHAIRMAN AND BOARD MEMBERS.

I'M THE GREAT NIECE OF RUDOLFO MENDEZ.

I'M SPEAKING TODAY IN FAVOR OF AGENDA ITEM FIVE, RUDY OR MR. RADIE.

AS MANY CALLS HIM WAS ACTIVE IN THE COMMUNITY THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE.

AND ESPECIALLY AT THE RECREATION CENTER FOR 40 YEARS ALREADY PROMOTED DANCE, CULTURE, HISTORY, THE ARTS AND EDUCATION THROUGHOUT THE EAST AUSTIN COMMUNITY.

AS A TEACHER AND MENTOR TO HUNDREDS OF KIDS THROUGHOUT HIS DECADES OF SERVICE, HE ENCOURAGED STUDENTS AND DANCERS JUST PURSUE THEIR DREAMS AND PURSUE THEIR EDUCATION.

HE WAS A FIXTURE AT THE MAX REC CENTER.

YOU COULD FIND HIM THERE MOST, ANY DAY OF THE WEEK AND ON WEEKENDS, WHETHER WRITING COUNTLESS GRANT PROPOSALS, PAYING FOR COSTUMES AND DANCE SHOES OUT OF HIS OWN POCKET OR PROVIDING LUNCH AT SATURDAY PRACTICES, RUDY DID WHATEVER IT TOOK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE STUDENTS AND THE FAMILIES HAD THE SUPPORT THEY NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.

HE KNEW THAT DANCE CULTURE, DISCIPLINE, FRIENDSHIP, AND MENTORSHIP COULD, AND DID HAVE AN INFLUENTIAL IMPACT ON KEEPING THE KIDS HEALTHY, SAFE, AND ON TRACK TO COMPLETE THEIR EDUCATION AND TO GIVE BACK TO THEIR COMMUNITY THROUGH THEIR OWN CREATIVITY AND SUCCESS.

I HOPE YOU WILL VOTE IN FAVOR OF THE NAME CHANGE AND IN RECOGNITION OF THE INCREDIBLE IMPACT HE HAD ON OUR COMMUNITY AND ON THE METRICS COMMUNITY.

THANK YOU BOARD.

MY NAME IS MELISSA VOD, ALL EXECUTIVE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF VALLEYS DANCE COMPANY.

TODAY, I'M SPEAKING IN SUPPORT OF THE RENAMING OF METS RECREATION CENTER TO THE ADULT HOME MENDEZ RECREATION CENTER.

RUDY RUDOLFO MENDEZ WAS OTHERLY CALLED RUDY WAS BORN AND RAISED IN EAST AUSTIN AS A MAN OF LATINO DESCENT.

HE WAS FACED WITH INEQUALITIES THAT MINORITIES FACE IN SOCIETY AS THEY WORK TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES, WHERE HE ALSO HAD A PERONEUS LOVE FOR THE ART OF DANCE FOR THE PEOPLE OF EAST AUSTIN.

HIS PASSION AND CAREER WAS TWOFOLD.

BUILDING EQUITY FOR THE RESIDENTS OF THE EAST AUSTIN COMMUNITY AND JIMMY.

SO BY USING DANCE AS A CATALYST, THEN IT BECAME AN EMPLOYEE WITH THE CITY OF AUSTIN PARKS AND RECREATION.

AND WITH HOW'S IT METZ RECREATION CENTER FOR DECADES, HE WORKED TO BUILD AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMMING YOUTH.

AND IN 1978 VALLEY EAST DANCE COMPANY WAS BORN HIS MISSION.

THE VALLEYS DANCE COMPANY BECAME BRINGING ARTS AND COMMUNITY AND THE COMMUNITY TO THE ARTS.

HE CREATED VALLEY EAST DANCE COMPANY FOR ADULTS, BUT AN AFTERSCHOOL YOU BALLET CLINICAL PROGRAM AT MARTIN MIDDLE SCHOOL.

THEY HAD A DANCE PROGRAM, WHICH WAS HOW THAT PAN-AMERICAN RECREATION CENTER, BROOK ELEMENTARY.

SO OF ALL THE ELEMENTARY AND SOUTH AUSTIN RECREATION CENTER PROVIDED NUMEROUS ANNUAL PERFORMANCES FOR THE COMMUNITY AT MARTIN MIDDLE SCHOOL, MENDEZ MIDDLE SCHOOL IN DOVE SPRINGS.

MEDTRACK PAN-AM THE BODY AND MEXICAN MEXICAN CULTURAL ARTS CENTER, NPS THE GARDEN.

OKAY.

HE DID THIS IN NUMEROUS GRANTS THAT HE WOULD WRITE DAY IN AND DAY OUT SO THAT PEOPLE HAD ACCESS FOR FREE TO THOSE.

OKAY.

HE HAS ADVOCATED FOR MANY ARTISTS OF COLOR EXPOSE AUSTIN TO LOCAL NATIONAL INTERNATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHERS, SOME STEWART COMPANIES SUCH AS THE ALVIN AILEY DANCE COMPANY, AND IT'S TOUCHED AND IMPACTED SO MANY THOUSANDS OF LIVES.

THESE YOUTH TODAY HAVE GROWN UP TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

DOCTORS, LAWYERS, AND EDUCATORS, AND PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO ARE SPEAKING UP HIS EFFORTS TODAY.

I AM ONE OF MANY WHO HE HAS IMPACTED AND MET HIM AT THE AGE OF 14.

AND NOW I AM A 47 YEAR OLD SUCCESSFUL WOMAN.

SHE DID

[00:10:01]

ALL THIS TO HELP BREAK BARRIERS CYCLES SO THAT WE WOULD NOT END, ENDED UP AS STATISTICS.

I HEAVILY SUPPORT THAT.

WE HONOR MR. MENDEZ, AS HE IS PART OF THE HISTORY OF EAST AUSTIN, REMINDER OF THE BEAUTY OF BRINGING ART TO THE COMMUNITY AND THE COMMUNITY TO THE ART SAFETY FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

THANK YOU, MELISSA.

WE'LL NOW MOVE ON TO THE ITEM.

C SIX CALLERS AIR MELINDA ZAMARRIPA.

YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES.

GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE.

I HOPE EVERYBODY'S DOING WELL.

AND I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR PUBLIC SERVICE.

I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.

MY NAME IS ED MELINDA.

I EMBARKED ON THIS PARK PROJECT IN 2006.

IT'S GONE FROM WORKING TO NAME A PARK OR MY UNCLE JOHN TREVINO, JR.

TO OBTAINING MONEY FOR A MASTER PLAN, TO WORKING WITH A CONSULTANT, TO DEVELOP A PLAN THAT COULD BE ENJOYED BY THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY AND ALL OF BOSTON.

IT'S BEEN A LONG, LONG, 19 YEARS.

SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW THAT JOHN COULD HAVE BEEN YOUR WORK TIRELESSLY TO BRING NEEDED SERVICES TO THE UNDERSERVED IN AUSTIN.

HE WAS RECOGNIZED FOR HIS CONTRIBUTIONS.

HE ENCOURAGED TO RUN FOR THE CITY CONSOLE WHO WON AND BECAME MAYOR PRO TIM AND INTERIM MAYOR FOR A WHILE.

WE'RE VERY, VERY PROUD OF HIS PUBLIC SERVICE.

YEAH, AND IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH PARK STAFF, CHARLES MAYBERRY AND RICARDO SOLI.

AND OF COURSE, GIGI AND THE MASTERPLAN CONSULTANT.

I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH THE PROCESS, NEVER IMPOSE THEIR OWN OPINION OR TRY TO REDIRECT THE PLAN TO REFLECT THEIR OWN DESIRES.

IT WAS REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND THEY ARE TO BE COMMENDED FOR THEIR INTEGRITY.

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ONE ITEM, I AM A HUNDRED PERCENT PLEASED WITH THE DESIGN, THE TRAILS, THE GATHERING SPOT ACCESS TO THE RIVER AND TRYING TO MAINTAIN ITS NATURAL BEAUTY.

HOWEVER, I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW IT TAKES SKATEPARK MADE IT TO THE DESIGN.

IT RUNS CONTRARY TO THE FLOW OF INCORPORATING NATURAL ELEMENTS AND RESTORING THE PARK TO THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE WE BECAME MORRISON RANCH, FURTHER HAVING ATTENDED ALL OF THE 2018 2018 BOND COMMISSION MEETINGS.

I DIDN'T NOT ONCE HEAR ANYONE ADVOCATE MONEY FOR A BIKE OR SKATE PARK.

I KNEW NO ONE.

THERE WERE PLENTY OF REQUESTS FOR POOLS, TRAIL LIBRARY, STREET UPGRADE, BUT NOT ONE FOR A BIKE OR SKATE PARK.

AND SOMEHOW ESCAPE PARK MADE IT TO THE DESIGN OF JOHN TREVINO PARK.

I'M FAIRLY CERTAIN THAT JOHN TREVINO WERE ALIVE.

MICHAEL WOULD OBJECT TO THE SKATE PARK.

HE'S STRESSING A DESIRE TO HAVE A PARK DEVELOP.

SO FAMILIES COULD USE IT TO REST AND RECREATE.

IT WAS ALL ABOUT FAMILIES FOR HIM.

AND SHE MAY KNOW THIS IS AN AREA WITH FEW RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FURTHER WHILE THE PARK IS 320 ACRE.

IT REALLY IS MUCH LESS THAN THAT BECAUSE ABOUT ONE THIRD OF THE ACREAGE IS ON THE FLOOD PLAIN AND NOT MUCH CAN BE DONE WITH THAT PART OF THE PARK.

ON TOP OF THAT, WE ARE WORKING WITH ABOUT 5000001ST, FIRST FAITH DEVELOPMENT.

THAT'S NOT GOING TO GO VERY FAR CONSUMMATED TO PROVE WHAT TO COMMIT 10 MILLION FOR PARKS DEVELOPMENT.

PARDON ME? THAT WAS YOUR THREE MINUTES.

OH GOD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I WANT TO WRAP IT UP LIKE TWO SECONDS TO WRAP IT UP.

WELL, I, I JUST, UH, IT GOT COUNSELING PILL AND I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

AND I HOPE THAT YOU'LL AGREE WITH OUR REQUEST TO ELIMINATE THE STATE PARK, THE STATE PARK.

SO THANK YOU SO MUCH AND I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL AFTERNOON.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU OR MELINDA.

THE NEXT CALLER IS CHARLES RAECHEL.

CHARLES, IF YOU'LL UNMUTE, YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

I AM CHARLES RAECHEL.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF ITEM C6, THE MASTER PLAN FOR JOHN FOR THE VIMEO JUNIOR METROPOLITAN PARK, WITH ONE EXCEPTION, I'M ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE PLAN.

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE

[00:15:01]

AND THANK CHARLES MABRY, DAVID MALDA AND THEIR TEAM FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY WORK THEY DID AND LISTENING TO THE COMMUNITY AND DEVELOPING A PLAN THAT TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE SITE, BUT ALSO ACTUALLY ENHANCES PUBLIC ENJOYMENT OF IT.

THE ONE PART OF THE PLAN THAT DO NOT SUPPORT IS THE PROPOSED SKATE BIKE SKILLS FACILITY MENTIONED ON PAGE 29 OF THE FINAL MASTER PLAN SUMMARY.

I DO NOT BELIEVE SUCH A FACILITY IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE SITE AND THE OTHER PLANNED ACTIVITIES.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER PLACES IN AUSTIN FOR SKATE AND BIKE FACILITIES.

I AM HOWEVER ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT WALK MENTIONED ON PAGE 31.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE VISITORS SHOULD KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE PERSON FOR WHOM A PUBLIC FACILITY IS NAMED.

AND THE PLAN FOR TREVINO'S WALK IS AN INGENIOUS WAY TO INFORM VISITORS ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT AUSTIN FIGURE.

I AM EQUALLY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE RECOMMENDATION ON PAGE 61 TO LIMIT PARK EVENTS BETWEEN MODEST SCALE, MR. PROVINA WAS CONSISTENT AND EMPHATIC.

HE DID NOT WANT THE PARK TO BE A VENUE FOR LARGE CONCERTS.

HE WANTED THE PARK TO SERVE FAMILIES AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS ON PAGE 61 HONOR HIS WISHES.

ONCE AGAIN, CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ENTIRE TEAM THAT DEVELOPED THE MASTER PLAN IS A WONDERFUL VISION FOR THE PARK.

I THANK THE BOARD MEMBERS FOR YOUR SERVICE TO AUSTIN.

AND I THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.

THANK YOU, CHARLES.

THE FINAL COLOR IS STEPHANIE TREVIñO STEPHANIE, IF YOU WANT TO UNMUTE YOURSELF, YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES.

GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE.

MY NAME IS STEPHANIE .

I'M THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF JOHN TREVINO JR.

I'M HERE TODAY TO REQUEST THE REMOVAL OF TWO SECTIONS IN THE MASTER PART PLAN.

THE FIRST SECTION IS A BMX PUNK TRACK.

AND THIS NEXT SECTION IS THE SKATE PARK.

I STATED IN THE LETTER I SENT TO THE DOORS, THE FINAL SURVEY SHOWS A PUPPET, BUT NOT PRIORITIZED EITHER.

IF THESE SECTIONS TO BE ADDED INTO THE PARKS MASTER PLAN, THESE TWO SECTIONS WERE ADDED AND LEFT IN THE MASTER PLAN.

AFTER A GROUP OF WEST NINTH STREET, BMX BIKERS AND SKATEBOARDERS PETITIONS IN AUGUST, 2019 TO TAKE OVER ALL 330 ACRES OF PARKLAND.

AND THERE WAS A CONCERN FOR SAFETY IN THESE TWO SECTIONS ON JUNE 17TH, 2020, I CHILD SOCCER, TRAUMATIC INJURIES AND THE WALNUT CREEK PARK WHILE UTILIZING THE BMX PUNK CHAT AS A SAFE KISS.

AUSTIN COALITION PRESIDENT IS OUR MISSION TO PREVENT CHILDHOOD INJURIES, NOT INCREASE THEM.

THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT SHOULD BE PROMOTING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES AND NATURE TOURISM FOR ALL FAMILIES TO ENJOY AS ALIGNED IN THEIR STRATEGIC 2023.

THE COST OF BUILDING THESE TWO SECTIONS IS EXPENSIVE.

THE EQUIPMENT AND TRAINING REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE SPORTS.

IT'S EXPENSIVE AS WELL.

THESE SECTIONS ARE YET ANOTHER WAY TO WEAVE OUT MARGINALIZED AND UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES.

BUT PRIOR TO RECREATION DEPARTMENT IS CURRENTLY ASKING THE COMMUNITY TO SUPPORT THE AUSTIN CHILDREN'S OUTDOOR BILL OF RIGHTS.

THE PLEDGE OF SUPPORT STATES.

WE BELIEVE AUSTIN HAS INVESTED INTEREST IN ENSURING ALL CHILDREN IN OUR CITY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT TO THE NATURAL WORLD AND HELP CREATE THE NEXT GENERATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS WHO WILL CONSERVE AWESOME QUALITY OUTDOOR SPACE BY LEAVING IN THESE TWO SECTIONS, THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT, IT'S GOING WITH THIS, THE PUBLIC'S WISHES, THE AUSTIN OUTDOORS BILL OF RIGHTS.

SO THEN THE GRANDFATHER'S LEGACY, OUR FAMILY WANTS TO HELP THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT PROMOTE OUTDOOR RECREATION THAT WILL PROTECT AND PRESERVE EXISTING NATURAL RESOURCES.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE HER TO THE NATURAL TOURISM ACTIVITIES WITH ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE DESIGN, THE AMENITIES AND FIRES TO BUY OVER THE PARKS, NATURAL SETTING.

WE WANT THE PARKS AND RECREATION NATURE, BOTH PROGRAMS AND PARKS DEVELOPMENT TO ALLOW A WIDE VARIETY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO CONNECT TO PARTICIPANTS, TO NATURE AND NATURAL SPACES.

THIS APPROACH IS COST NEUTRAL FOR LAND MANAGEMENT AND OPERATION.

PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB THIS PART BEFORE IT'S OPEN.

WE ALL KNOW FROM THE 1928 CITY OF AUSTIN MASTERCARD, THAT PLANTS CAN POTENTIALLY DIVIDE COMMUNITIES AND WE HAVE HARMFUL EFFECTS.

WE STILL HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON COMMUNITIES OF COLOR TODAY.

THIS PARK WAS MEANT TO HONOR MY GRANDFATHER'S 60 YEARS OF PUBLIC SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY.

IT WAS NOT MEANT TO SERVE THE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS AND WANT TO MEET.

THERE WAS MEANT TO BE A SPACE FOR EVERYBODY TO GATHER INTO THE CITY, BUT HISPANIC QUALITY OF LIFE COMMISSION PASSED FOR MY RECOMMENDATION FOR THESE TWO SECTIONS TO BE REMOVED THIS MORNING.

AND I ASKED FOR THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD TO STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH THESE RECOMMENDATION.

THANK YOU.

[00:20:10]

THAT'S ALL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, SUNNI.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.

OKAY.

SO WE'LL NOW MOVE ON TO THE, UM, STAFF BRIEFINGS AND REPORTS.

I DID WANT TO SAY THAT AFTER THE TRAINING THAT WE HAD, UM, AT THE LAST LAST WEEK, AND I THINK WHAT WE'LL DO FOR OUR, UM, PRESENTATIONS IS WE'LL GO AHEAD AND JUST HAVE THE AGENDA ITEM, GO THROUGH THE PRESENTATION.

AND THEN IF I CAN JUST ASK PEOPLE TO JUST RAISE THEIR HANDS, IF THEY HAVE QUESTIONS AND IF THEY HAVE QUESTIONS THAT'S, IF THE QUESTIONS START TO EVOLVE INTO A DISCUSSION, THEN WE'LL JUST ASK FOR A RECOMMENDATION.

OKAY.

SO WE'LL JUST GO IN THERE.

BUT THE NEXT ITEM ON

[Item B1]

THE AGENDA IS STAFF BRIEFINGS AND REPORTS.

AND THE ITEM IS CENSUS 2020 WITH JOHN LEE LAWLER.

ARE YOU THERE MR. CHAIR LEWIS? YES, WE CAN.

I JUST WANT TO JUST REMIND YOU THAT WE HAVE A BIG SCHEDULED TODAY.

AND SO WE'RE JUST TRYING TO KEEP YOUR PRESENTATION TO BE ABOUT 10 MINUTES.

OKAY.

THAT WAS GOOD.

YEAH.

SOMEONE SO MUCH THAT STARTED STARTED STOPWATCH RIGHT NOW.

LET'S SEE HOW FAST I CAN BUG YOU THROUGH THIS.

WE ALL THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME THIS AFTERNOON.

UM, IT'S, IT'S A PLEASURE TO SEE SOME FAMILIAR FACES AND AS THEY'RE PULLING UP THE PRESENTATION REAL QUICK, I'LL PROVIDE YOU SOME BACKGROUND.

UH, THE COUNTY AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN TEAMED UP LAST YEAR TO FORM A COMBINED, UH, SINCE THIS OUTREACH EFFORT OF WHICH I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF GETTING TO MANAGE WITH A HOST OF OTHER TEAMS AND VOLUNTEERS WHO STEPPED UP TO HELP LEAD IT.

AND IF WE WANT TO GO AHEAD AND CLICK TO THE NEXT SLIDE ALL RIGHT.

SO THESE ARE THE THREE POINTS I'M GOING TO HIT HERE FOR, Y'ALL JUST A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE CENSUS.

SOME OF THE RESPONSE RATES WE'RE SEEING AND THEN SHOWING YOU ALL WHAT WE'RE DOING LOCALLY, IN CASE THIS MIGHT SPUR SOME CREATIVITY WITH YOU ALL HERE ON THE BOARD FOR HOW Y'ALL MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP OUT AS WELL, OR WITH SOME SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT WE COULD DO LOCALLY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

ALRIGHT.

SO REAL QUICK, HERE'S JUST A LIST OF MANY OF THE PROGRAMS THAT ARE FUNDED BY SOME DATA.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS, IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WHENEVER WE COLLECT THIS DATA EVERY 10 YEARS, IT DOESN'T ONLY JUST PROVIDE INFORMATION FOR SCIENTISTS OR RESEARCHERS THAT QUITE LITERALLY IMPACTS HOW MUCH MONEY OUR REGION GETS.

AND THAT THE TOP LINE NOTE THAT BE TO LOOK AT IS A QUOTE FROM OUR COUNTY TAX ASSESSOR COLLECTOR, BRUCE ALFOND, WHICH IS THAT FOR EVERY PERSON WE DON'T COUNT.

THAT'S $1,500 PER YEAR THAT WE MISS OUT ON.

HOW ABOUT THE NEXT SLIDE? SORRY.

Y'ALL THERE MIGHT BE A DELAY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

HI, THIS IS THE AB TECH I'M LOOKING AT THE CENSUS IS CRUCIAL.

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR? THAT'S WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR, BUT I'M NOT SEEING IT ON THE OTHER.

WE ARE SO NO WORRIES.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S UH, LET'S PLAY MY INTERNET.

UH, SO SINCE THIS IS CRUCIAL, UH, THE TOP LINE THAT I THINK FOR YOU TO CONSIDER IS THAT SINCE THIS DATA IMPACTS THE REDISTRICTING PROCESS, WHICH IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT, NOT ONLY FOR CONGRESSIONAL SEATS, BUT ALL THE WAY DOWN TO SCREW BOARD SEATS AND HERE LOCALLY, JUST NEXT YEAR, OUR INDEPENDENT CITIZENS REDISTRICTING COMMISSION FOR THE CITY, WE'LL BE USING THIS NEW CENSUS DATA TO DRAW CITY COUNCIL DISTRICTS AND THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

SO IT'S INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR REPRESENTATION.

AND IF YOU COULD BLESS THE NEXT SLIDE, DO YOU MIND LETTING ME KNOW WHEN YOU'VE CLICKED IT TO THE NEXT SLIDE? NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

AWESOME.

OKAY.

SO THE TIMELINE HAS CHANGED FOR THE CENSUS.

ORIGINALLY THE CUTOFF DATE WAS GOING TO BE JULY 31ST FOR FOLKS TO TAKE IT.

THERE'S THREE DIFFERENT WAYS.

YOU CAN TAKE DISTANCES, YOU CAN SUBMIT IT BY MAIL.

WHENEVER THEY MAIL YOU OUT A POSTCARD OR RETURN FORM, YOU CAN DO IT OVER THE PHONE AND YOU CAN DO IT ONLINE.

THIS ONLINE ADDITION TO THE WAYS YOU CAN TAKE IT AS IT'S REALLY COOL FOR US HERE LOCALLY, BECAUSE IT PROVIDES IT AN EASY WAY FOR FOLKS WHO MAY HAVE ACCESS TO INTERNET TO BE ABLE TO TAKE IT.

OF COURSE, IT CREATES A CHALLENGE FOR THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE INTERNET.

BUT WITH THAT SAID, THE TIMELINE HAS EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 31ST.

THIS IS DIRECTLY AS A RESULT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND THE CENSUS BUREAU HAVING SHUT DOWN ITS FIELD OFFICES.

SO WE NOW HAVE UNTIL OCTOBER 31ST TO GET FOLKS TO TAKE THE CENSUS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

[00:25:03]

OKAY, AWESOME.

SO WHAT YOU SHOULD BE SEEING HERE NOW IS A LIST OF DIFFERENT STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THIS IS A COUPLE OF WEEKS OLD NOW AT THIS POINT, BUT THE RANKINGS HAVEN'T CHANGED.

WE AS THE STATE OF TEXAS ARE 41ST, WE'RE REALLY NOT DOING A GREAT JOB AS A STATE.

THERE'S A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT REASONS FOR THAT AND CHALLENGES WE HAVE, BUT A LOT OF THE OTHER STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY SPEND SIGNIFICANT DOLLARS HAVING OUTREACH TO COMMUNITIES TO GET COUNTED.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

RIGHT.

AWESOME.

SO WHAT YOU'RE SEEING UP HERE NOW IS A RANKING OF DIFFERENT COUNTIES OR COUNTIES AROUND THE STATE.

WE SPLIT BETWEEN PARENT AND OURSELVES BEING EITHER THE FIRST OR SECOND PLACE FOR BIG COUNTIES WITHOUT RESPONSE RATE.

THAT'S MEANING THAT, YOU KNOW, THE LARGE COUNTIES HERE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS, WE HAVE USUALLY AROUND A SECOND, MOST FOLKS RESPONDING.

YOU'LL SEE SOME FAMILIAR COUNTIES UP THERE, LIKE WILLIAMSON THAT ARE HAVING A HIGHER RESPONSE RATE.

THOSE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COUNTIES, REALLY WHAT THEIR, WHAT THEIR POPULATION MAKEUP, UM, THAT W YOU KNOW, WE'VE STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO.

IF WE WANT TO TRY TO BE COMPETITIVE WITH A LOT OF THE OTHER NATIONAL RANKINGS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO WHAT THIS IS GOING TO SHOW YOU AS A, AS A NUMBER OF THE DIFFERENT CITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY, JUST TO COMPARE, YOU'LL SEE, EL PASO PASO, SIMILAR TO THAT, THE COUNTY WAS POSITIONED WHERE WE KEEP KIND OF FLIPPING EITHER OUT OF THE FIRST OR SECOND HIGHEST RESPONSE.

UH, WE'RE THE SECOND HIGHEST RESPONDING LARGE CITY IN THE STATE, AND WE KEEP TRADING PLACE WITH EL PASO, AND YOU CAN SEE THERE HOW IT'S VARYING ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE UPDATE ON OUTREACH EFFORTS.

YEP.

AND WHEN WE CLICK TO THE NEXT SLIDE AS WELL, THAT'S WHERE I STUCK TO GO WITH THE FASTER THIS PART.

SO WE'VE GOT AN INSTITUTIONAL GRASSROOTS AND MEDIA CAMPAIGN PLAN WE'VE LAID OUT.

I'M GONNA BRIEFLY TOUCH ON A COUPLE OF THOSE THINGS THAT WE'VE ALREADY GOT GOING UNDERWAY.

AGAIN, THIS IS TO POTENTIALLY GET YOUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING HERE, TO THINK THROUGH WAYS Y'ALL MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP OUT, UH, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE DO HAVE A CAMPAIGN BUDGET IT'S FAIRLY ROBUST AND THE GRASSROOTS AREA.

WE'VE GOT A LOT OF COMMUNITY CANVASSING GOING ON RIGHT NOW.

AND I'LL TOUCH, TOUCH A COUPLE OF NOTES OF HOW WE'RE SPENDING THOSE DOLLARS.

NEXT SLIDE.

WE HAVE A REGIONAL MEDIA PLAN THAT WAS FUNDED THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE UNITED WAY OF GREATER AUSTIN AND FOUR SURROUNDING COUNTIES THAT WE'RE WORKING WITH.

THE FOUR SPANISH SPEAKING RADIO STATIONS HERE IN CENTRAL TEXAS TO GET OUT CONTENT ACROSS THOSE RADIO WAVES AND THE COMMUNITIES.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS INCLUDES LIVE SCRIPTS BETWEEN FOLKS ON THE AIRS, AND IT'S SPECIFICALLY TALKING ABOUT NEIGHBORHOODS AND COMMUNITY CENTERS AROUND THE CENTRAL TEXAS AREA THAT ARE HAVING LOW RESPONSE RATES AND ARE, ARE, YOU KNOW, HAVE A LARGE CONCENTRATION OF THE HISPANIC, LATINO POPULATION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE'VE GOT A REALLY COOL DIGITAL TEAM, UH, THAT HAS COME UP WITH A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT TOOLS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO USE.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE WHERE ARE THE HARD TO COUNT NEIGHBORHOODS WITHIN THE COUNCIL DISTRICT THAT YOU OVERLAY, OR PERHAPS YOU'VE GOT SOME CONNECTIONS OR FAMILIAR FACES AND OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTY YOU THINK COULD STEP UP AND HELP OUT THESE TOOLS WILL KIND OF HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE CHALLENGES WE'RE FACING.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE DASHBOARDS THAT OUR DIGITAL TEAM THROUGH A PARTNERSHIP WITH OPEN AUSTIN, A LOCAL NONPROFIT GROUP THAT HAS BEEN BUILT OUT NEXT SLIDE.

WE'VE GOT TONS OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE@ATXCENSUSTWENTYTWENTY.COM.

AND YOU'LL SEE A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES THERE AT THE BOTTOM OF SOME POSTERS, PUSH CARDS AND SOME YARD SIGNS THAT WE'VE PLACED OUT AT DIFFERENT FACILITIES.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

ALL RIGHT, NOW WE'RE GOING TO BE GETTING INTO OUR GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN UPDATES.

WE'VE GOT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT COMMUNITY BASED CCCS, AND WHAT CCC STANDS FOR IS A COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEE.

AND WHAT WE'VE DONE IS, IS UNIQUE FOR OUR AREA, WHICH IS WE HAVE GONE AND WORKED WITH LEADERS WITHIN DIFFERENT, HARD TO COUNT COMMUNITIES WITHIN TRAVIS COUNTY.

AND THEY HAVE LED AND CREATED EFFORTS ON THEIR OWN WITH MESSAGING COMPOSED OF THEIR COMMUNITY TOPICS AND THEMES OF X SLIDE, OUR BLACK AFRICAN AMERICAN CCC, WHICH GOES BY MAKE BLACK COUNT LOCALLY AS A REALLY GREAT GRASSROOTS EFFORT UNDERWAY.

THEY HAD PLANNED ON GOING DOOR TO DOOR, BUT THEY'RE DOING A LOT OF DIGITAL EVENTS.

NOW IT'S A GREAT WAY TO GET INVOLVED.

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN HELPING GET THAT COMMUNITY COUNTED.

NEXT SLIDE, WE HAVE OUR ASIAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY CCC.

THEY ARE ACTUALLY THE FIRST ONE UP AND AT IT, AND WE WE'VE MODELED A LOT OF THESE ORGANIZING EFFORTS AFTER THEM.

AND THEY'VE GOT A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS WITH GETTING STUDENTS THERE.

AND THEY, THEY MADE SURE TO TRY TO TRANSLATE THE DIFFERENT MATERIALS THEY HAD INTO AS MANY LANGUAGES AS POSSIBLE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WE HAVE AN LGBTQ COMMUNITY CCC THAT WAS FORMED IN LARGE PART BECAUSE OF THE EFFORTS OF COUNCIL MEMBER FLANAGAN AND A NUMBER OF NONPROFITS AROUND THE AREA TO FORM THIS CCC.

THEY'VE GOT A LOT OF DIFFERENT DIGITAL

[00:30:01]

ADS AND TOOLS AND INSTRUCTIONAL GUIDES ON HOW TO TALK ABOUT THE CENSUS, THE FOLKS WITHIN THAT COMMUNITY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND THEN OUR HISPANIC LATINO CAN YOU CCC IS BY FAR THE LARGEST AND MOST ROBUST AT THIS POINT, BECAUSE FRANKLY THAT IS THE LARGEST HARD TO COUNT COMMUNITY WITHIN OUR AREA.

AND YOU'LL SEE THERE IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER, CONSTABLE GEORGE MORALES, WHO HAS REALLY STEPPED UP AND HELPED LEAD THIS EFFORT AND GET IT OFF THE GROUND.

UH, AND YOU KNOW THIS, BUT IT'S A VERY MUCH A COALITION EFFORT OF A LOT OF DIFFERENT FOLKS PUT IN A LOT OF EFFORT TO IT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND THIS IS JUST A SLIDE I ALWAYS INCLUDE.

THIS SHOWS YOU THE IMPACT OF THIS TYPE OF GRASSROOTS OUTREACH CAN HAVE ON CENSUS RESPONSE RATES.

THE CENSUS BUREAU PROVIDES A DAILY RESPONSE RATE DATA FOR DIFFERENT TRACKS, WHICH ARE BASICALLY JUST DIFFERENT NEIGHBORHOODS AROUND THE COUNTY.

AND YOU CAN SEE HERE ON THIS SLIDE, THAT QUICK UPTICK, BUT THEY ARE SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GRAPH THAT IS AFTER A SERIES OF GRASSROOTS EFFORTS, INCLUDING YARD SIGNS, LETTERS FROM THE CONSTABLE PHONE CALLS OUT TO RESIDENTS.

IT HAS AN IMMEDIATE UPTICK.

SO THESE KINDS OF EFFORTS ARE PROVEN TO WORK.

UM, NEXT YOU CAN SKIP THE NEXT TWO SLIDES.

UH, WE'VE GOT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT INSTITUTIONAL PARTNERS THAT ARE HELPING US OUT.

DO YOU WANT TO JUST CLICK THROUGH THESE NEXT THREE? UH, QUICKLY WE'VE GOT OFTEN AT BENNETT SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS DONE A GREAT DEAL OF WORK WITH THEIR PARENTS SPORTS SPECIALISTS.

WE HAVE CENTRAL HEALTH ON THE NEXT SLIDE, UH, WHERE THEY'VE ACTUALLY BEEN MAILING OUT A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT POSTCARDS TO FOLKS WITHIN THEIR POOL OF CUSTOMERS AND FOLKS THAT THEY TALK TO AND WORK WITH.

AND THEN ON THE NEXT SLIDE, YOU CAN SEE ALL THE DIFFERENT THINGS.

THE CITY OF AUSTIN IS UP TO THE CITY HAS BEEN AN AMAZING PARTNER USING ALL THE DIFFERENT STREAMS THAT THEY HAVE TO TRY TO GET OUT INFORMATION TO FOLKS.

AND SO WITH THAT, WE ARE FOCUSING ON ONE PARTICULAR AREA, A LOT OF OUR GRASSROOTS ACTIVITY, WHICH IS AROUND THE NORTH LAMAR RUNDBERG AREA, UH, TRITONS.

THERE'S A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT DIVERSE COMMUNITIES THERE WHO ARE TRADITIONALLY HARD TO COUNT.

AND THEN ON THE NEXT SLIDE, YOU CAN SEE WE'VE GOT A LOCAL 30 DAY RESPONSE CHALLENGE, WHICH IS ANY WAY IS AN EASY WAY FOR ANY OF Y'ALL TO GET INVOLVED.

WE'VE GOT WEEKLY THEMES WHERE WE'RE RELEASING MESSAGES AND SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT THAT YOU CAN SHARE ONLINE NOW RELATED TO GETTING FOLKS COUNTED HERE LOCALLY ON THE CENSUS.

AND THEN IF YOU'D LIKE TO CLICK THROUGH TO THE LAST SLIDE AGAIN, THE MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE THAT ANY OF Y'ALL CAN SHARE THERE, ANY OF THE CONTACTS YOU HAVE WITH ON NEIGHBORHOOD LISTS, THERE'S NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS, COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS IS THAT YOU CAN GO AND TAKE THE CENSUS ONLINE RIGHT NOW.

AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, YOU CAN CALL TWO, ONE, ONE, OR JUST GO DIRECTLY TO MY 2020 CENSUS.GOV.

IT'S NINE QUESTIONS AND LIKELY UNDER NINE MINUTES, DEPENDING UPON THE SIZE OF YOUR FAMILY, YOU DON'T NEED AN ONLINE ID.

THEN WITH THAT, I THINK I CLEARED 10 MINUTES A CHAIR.

I DON'T DID YOU, WERE YOU KEEPING TIME ON ME? I ACTUALLY WASN'T, BUT I THOUGHT YOU DID A FABULOUS JOB IN A REALLY SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME.

SO, SO THANK YOU.

WE PROBABLY DO HAVE, IF ANYBODY DOES HAVE, UM, A QUICK QUESTION, WE PROBABLY DO HAVE JUST A MINUTE TO, OR COMMENT THAT'S GREAT JOB YEAH.

AND I WILL SAY, I THINK I'VE CERTAINLY GOTTEN A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE CENSUS, SO, AND, AND IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.

AND I, AND I, I KNOW I WILL TRY TO DO WHAT I CAN TO HELP PROMOTE IT.

SO , UM, AND WE REALLY APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE DOING, SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU CHAIR.

AND I'LL BE SURE TO SHARE WITH SANDY AND CITY STAFF, MY CONTACT INFORMATION.

SO IF ANY OF THE BOARD MEMBERS OR ANY FOLKS WATCHING WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST IDEAS OR GET INVOLVED, THEY'RE MORE THAN THEY'RE MORE THAN FREE TO CONTACT .

HI, JOHN, THIS IS KIM.

I JUST WANT US TO JAY, ONE OF THE, JUST FYI.

UM, I'M ACTUALLY LEADING THE EFFORTS IN EL PASO COUNTY.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE FOUND REALLY, UM, EXTREMELY HELPFUL, AND TO NO COST TO YOU AT ALL, IS WE'RE HAVING THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS SEND OUT VIA TEXT TO THEIR TEXTING SYSTEM INFORMATION ON, UM, THE CENSUS.

I'M HAPPY TO SHARE THAT INFORMATION WITH YOU.

AND DO WE HAVE MARGARET STENTS AS A PRESENTER? YES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES.

WELCOME FROM CONSENT CHAIR.

THIS IS A CONSENT ITEM.

THESE THREE ARE CONSENT.

SO, SO DOES ANYBODY WANT TO PULL THIS AND I GUESS WE CAN REALLY HAD AN BOTH SHARE.

YOU CAN ADD ON, CAN YOU HEAR ME ALL RIGHT, JUST TO THE WHOLE, YOU WANT TO JUST DO THE WHOLE CONSENT AGENDA? YES.

OKAY.

LET'S DO THAT FIRST.

LET'S GO THROUGH AND SEE IF ANYBODY WANTS TO PULL IN YOU THE ITEMS. OKAY.

SO LET'S GO THROUGH WITH THE SECOND ONE, YOUR RECOMMENDATION TO THE CITY COUNCIL TO AUTHORIZE THE NEGOTIATION AND EXECUTION OF AN AGREEMENT WITH THE SUCCESSFUL PROPOSER TEXAS RUINS CENTER, INC.

TO PROVIDE MANAGEMENT AND OPERATION OF A BUDDING CONCESSION ON LADY, BIRD LAKE.

DOES ANYBODY WANT TO PULL THAT ONE? NO.

SO WE COULD JUST MOVE ON THOSE TWO TO RECOMMEND AND THEN GO BACK TO YOURS AND TALK ABOUT IT.

DOES THAT WORK? OKAY.

SO OUR, THE AGENDA ITEM, I THINK YOU PARDON THE TWO ON THE CONSENT AGENDA.

SO WE EVERYBODY'S PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

OKAY.

SO SHOULD WE GO AHEAD AND GO BACK TO THE TEXAS ROWING CENTER?

[Item C2]

YES, WE CAN HANDLE IT ONE OR TWO WAYS.

CAUSE I NOTICED THAT BAR BOARD MEMBER BOSS HAS FALLEN OFF THE CALL.

NO, I STILL SEE HER.

OKAY.

SHE'S NOT SHOWING UP ON MY SCREEN.

I APOLOGIZE.

THIS IS MY, WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR.

UM, WHEN WE WERE IN SEPARATE CONCESSIONS COMMITTEE IT WAS WHAT DID THE CONTRACTS, AS FAR AS ELIMINATING THESE LARGER AREAS WHERE THEY'RE STOWING, UH, STORING BOATS, UM, AND WE BELIEVED IT WAS ON CONDITION OF THEM BUILDING THE NEW BOAT HOUSE AND THAT THOSE WOULD BE, BE MOVED OVER THERE.

WE WANT TO CREATE, OR I WANT A CONFIRMATION THAT, THAT WAS THE CASE AND THE THREE PLUS MAJOR BOAT RACKS AND THE SMALLER BOAT PLACEMENT ALONG THE TRAILS

[00:40:01]

AND THE TREES AND THE BUSHES WERE GOING TO BE REMOVED.

AND THEN SINCE WHICH TIME ALSO BOARD MEMBER FILES HAD, YOU KNOW, SEEING SOME CHEMICALS, UH, THAT WERE CONTAINED BY ALSO ALONG THE TRAIL, THEY'RE SMALL, YOU KNOW, LIKE FIBERGLASS RELATED AND MAYBE GASOLINE EVEN THAT WERE ALONG THE TRAIL AND MAKING SURE THAT WAS CORRECT.

SO I WANTED TO GET A STAFF'S REPORT ON THAT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A GREAT STEWARD THAT I KNOW WE DO HAVE IN THIS VENDOR, BUT IF THAT'S NOT BEING ADDRESSED, THEN I DON'T KNOW IF I FEEL COMFORTABLE ON MOVING ON THIS ITEM.

THAT'S MY INPUT, A CHAIR.

SO IF WE WANT TO GO AHEAD AND GET STABBED, BUT IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO SEE THE FULL PRESENTATION, THAT'S FAIR TOO.

UM, AND ANYTHING GO TO THE QUESTIONS, WHATEVER YOU, WHATEVER YOUR PROGRESS.

THAT'S TRUE.

OKAY.

WELL, I KNOW THAT IT WAS SEEN BY CONTRACTS AND CONCESSIONS.

DO WE HAVE, BUT OBVIOUSLY HALF THE BOARD WASN'T ABLE TO SEE THAT PRESENTATION.

DO WE HAVE INTEREST IN SEEING THE PRESENTATION FROM THOSE WHO DIDN'T, IF YOU DO WANT TO SEE IT, COULD YOU RAISE YOUR HAND? OKAY.

SO I SEE NO HANDS, SO, OKAY.

SO WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO FOR LIMITED POMOS CALL UP SAM TO SEE HOW THOSE ITEMS, THOSE ITEMS WERE ADDRESSED.

OKAY.

THEN LET'S UM, LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO THAT.

AND THEN WE SHOULD HAVE TERRY LEWIS.

THIS IS SAMMY AT CITY HALL.

THERE WAS AN ITEM THAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE PACKET THAT WAS AND ANSWERS FROM THE CONTRACTS AND CONCESSIONS COMMITTEE.

UM, BOARD MEMBER DIPLOMA.

IS THAT WORK FOR WHAT YOU'RE SEARCHING FOR? DID YOU WANT TO ENGAGE IN AN ADDITIONAL CONVERSATION? UH, WHAT I HAD SAW, I SEE A Q AND A THAT IS MAYBE IT'S LABELED WRONG, BUT IT HAS CAP COD HUNGRY MEALS.

SO THAT'S WHAT I, WHAT I HAD PULLED DOWN OFF THE WEBSITE, ANYTHING I'VE GOTTEN THROUGH EMAIL WAS WE WERE GOING TO TALK TO THEM, UM, SORT OF STATEMENT.

AND THAT WAS EMAIL, NOT SOMEBODY THAT WAS PERCEIVED AS A BACKUP FOR THE AGENDA.

I'M SORRY.

I MAY HAVE PICKED THIS.

KIMBERLY MCNEALY COULD BE PLEASE HAVE A STAFF MEMBER FROM OUR CONTRACTS COMMITTEE, GET ON THE LINE AND PROVIDE THE RESPONSES TO THE QUESTIONS THAT BOARD MEMBER DEPALMA HAS.

YES.

UH, THIS IS GABRIELLE RECEIVED.

OH, I WAS, I UNDERSTAND.

HI.

I HOPE EVERYONE CAN HEAR ME SIGNIFICANT DELAY FROM THE BROADCAST.

SO GABRIELLE, COULD YOU SPEAK UP JUST A LITTLE BIT? WE'RE HAVING, I'M HAVING A HARD TIME HEARING YOU.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME BETTER NOW? YES.

CAN EVERYBODY HEAR ME OKAY? YES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? YES.

VERY GOOD.

SO, YES.

UM, THE CURRENT CONTRACT MANAGER OF MEG EASTON SUBMITTED THESE QUESTIONS TO MAGNIFICENCE TEXAS ROWING CENTER.

AND SO WE'RE NOT, WE'RE NOT ABLE TO HEAR YOU VERY WELL.

ARE YOU AT THE MIC? IS IT I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE ISSUE IS HAVE BEEN PUT MYSELF SPEAKERPHONE.

IS THAT BETTER FOR YOU? I THINK SO.

LET'S TRY THAT.

OKAY.

AND SO THE JUNE 12TH DATED MEMORANDUMS, UH, PICKING ANYTHING ELITE HAS THE QA BASED ON THE CCP QUESTIONS, THE FIRST QUESTION WAS WE'LL HAVE THE BOATS, TRAILERS AND TOOLS AND THE RESPONSES THAT THIS EQUIPMENT DOES NOT BELONG TO DRC, BUT UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS ROWING CREW, WHICH MEANS IS THE DOCK AND, UM, CONTACT MANAGER, MAGGIE STANS IS ARRANGING A MEETING WITH UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS TO DISCUSS A PLAN FOR MOVING THE EQUIPMENT.

AND, UM, THERE WAS A COMMITMENT BY THE CURRENT VENDOR TO REMOVE THE EQUIPMENT BY THE END OF THE YEAR.

UH, WAS THAT A HERD? YES.

YES.

.

I'M CURIOUS FOR THE WET BAR MEMBER BOSS, IF SHE HAS ANY QUESTIONS UM, I MEAN, I, I GUESS IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY'RE GOING TO REMOVE THEIR COMMENT BY THE END OF THE YEAR.

I DO THINK, I THINK IT'S NICE THAT THEY HAVE T CREW AT THE FACILITY.

UM, I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN INVOLVED WITH FLOATING FACILITIES THAT HOSTS UT CLUB SPORT TEAMS. AND I KNOW IT CAN BE TRICKY TO MANAGE THOSE BECAUSE THEY CHANGE LEADERSHIP AND THEIR STUDENTS, BUT I DO THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD IF SINCE THEY ARE THE CONCESSIONAIRE AND THEY'RE CONTROLLING THE PROPERTY AND IT IS RIGHT ON OUR SHORELINE OF LADY BIRD LAKE, IF THEY COULD, YOU KNOW, CRC COULD UNDERSTAND THAT THEY NEED TO KEEP THAT PROPERLY MANAGED AND KEPT UP NICELY.

UM, AND THEN I'M SURE, ACCORDING TO YOU ALL IN THE, I HAD TAKEN SOME PHOTOS OF LIKE THE SORT OF BROKEN DOWN STORAGE LOCKER WITH SOME,

[00:45:02]

UM, YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE SUBSTANCES THEY'RE USING ON THE BOATS, KIND OF JUST IN THE GRASS.

AND I FORWARD IT, THAT'S IT.

I DIDN'T HAVE THEM, UM, AT THE CONTRACTS AND CONCESSIONS COMMITTEE, BUT I SENT THEM TO THE STAFF AFTER Y'ALL SENT THIS LATEST MEMO.

SO HOPEFULLY THOSE CAN BE SPECIFICALLY USED IN FOLLOW UP TO SEE IF THOSE, UM, THAT STUFF CAN GET CLEANED UP BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.

THAT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE SOMETHING THAT SHOULDN'T TAKE THAT LONG.

OKAY.

SO BOARD MEMBER PASSED, THIS IS KIMBERLY MCNEALY.

I WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE SURE THAT I PERSONALLY HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH, UM, WITH THE TEXAS ROWING VENDOR TO MAKE SURE THE THINGS THAT YOU PROVIDED US, THOSE PICTURES ARE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY OR CLEANED UP IMMEDIATELY.

AND THEN WE WILL HAVE OUR CONTRACTS AND STAFF MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE ON THEIR CHECKLIST OF ITEMS WHEN THEY HAVE DO AN AUDIT ON THAT PARTICULAR VENDOR, TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE CHECKING AND DOUBLE CHECKING THE REMOVAL OF THE EQUIPMENT.

AND SO HOPEFULLY BOTH OF THOSE THINGS CAN BE DONE IMMEDIATELY IN ONE GIVING AMPLE TIME FOR ADDITIONAL STORAGE TO BE FOUND THAT WILL HOPEFULLY GIVE YOU SOME COMFORT THAT WE'RE, WE'RE MANAGING THOSE THINGS THAT WERE OF CONCERN.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO DOES THAT SATISFY YOU? WELL, THE DIPLOMA, IT DOES.

THANK YOU.

I'M WILLING TO VOTE ON A MOTION.

OKAY.

AND HOW ABOUT YOU BOARD MEMBER FOSTER? YOU GOOD? OKAY.

OKAY.

SO LET'S, DO I HAVE A MOTION THEN TO, TO RECOMMEND THE, UH, NAIL , UH, TO THE CITY COUNCIL, THE AUTHORIZATION THAT AUTHORIZED THE NEGOTIATION AND EXECUTION OF AN AGREEMENT WITH THEM, THE TEXAS ROWING CENTER, ALL IN FAVOR ANYBODY OPPOSED? NO, IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

MOVING ON TO OUR NON-CONSENT AGENDA, WE HAVE A RECOMMENDATION TO THE CITY COUNCIL REGARDING AN AMENDMENT TO THE BUSINESS ITEM.

NUMBER THREE OR FOUR MEMBER DEPALMA INCLUDED IS HIS ORIGINAL MOTION.

WAS IT ONE AND THREE OR JUST ONE? IT WAS ONE IN THREE.

THANK YOU.

I APOLOGIZE.

I MISSED THE THREE PART, SORRY, BOARD CHAIR.

THAT'S OKAY.

UM, OKAY.

MOVING ON TO NON-CONSENT

[Item C4]

RECOMMENDATION TO THE CITY COUNCIL REGARDING AN AMENDMENT TO THE GOODNIGHT RANCH PLAN UNIT DEVELOPMENT AS A PRETENSE TO PARKLAND ABOUT BOARD MEMBERS HELLO, BOARD MEMBERS, IT'S SCOTT GRANTHAM, I'M WITH PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT.

HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING WELL AND STAYING SAFE AT THIS TIME.

UM, THIS, UH, IS, IS MY PRESENTATION, UH, BEING QUEUED UP AMENDMENT TWO, GOODNIGHT RANCH PLAN, UNIT DEVELOPMENT.

SO I WILL, I WILL BE AS BRIEF AS I CAN AND, AND WE HAVE SLIDE NUMBERS AT THE BOTTOM.

SO I WILL REFER TO THAT.

I'M NOT WATCHING ATX N BECAUSE, UM, I'M SURE THERE'D BE A LITTLE DELAY, WHICH WOULD PROBABLY DISTRACT.

SO I'M JUST GONNA FOCUS ON MY PRESENTATION AND THE AUDIO.

THANK YOU.

THIS IS MY, IS MY PRESENTATION QUEUED UP? WE'LL WORK ON IT.

SO ONE MINUTE.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

GREAT.

WELL, UM, LOOK, EVERYONE'S DOING WONDERFUL TODAY AND, UH, THIS IS, YOU KNOW, I MIGHT JUST TAKE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SAY THAT THIS IS A, UM, IT'S GOING TO BE AN ACTION ITEM AND THE PARKS BOARD WILL BE ASKED TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL, UH, REGARDING THE GOODNIGHT RANCH, HUD AMENDMENT, AS IT PERTAINS TO PARKLAND.

UM, WE HAVE THE APPLICANTS ON THE LINE.

WE HAVE MS. MIREK GROUP AND, UH, MS. ALICE GLASGOW AS WELL.

AND SO, UM, THEY'RE GOING TO BE AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS, UM, AS AM I .

THANK YOU.

THE PRESENTATIONS UPSTAIRS? JUST LET ME KNOW ABOUT SLIDING TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

VERY GOOD.

SO WE HAVE A TITLE SLIDE.

I THINK I'VE COVERED THAT ALREADY.

LET'S GO TO SLIDE NUMBER TWO.

UM, IT'S AN OVERVIEW,

[00:50:01]

AND BASICALLY YOU'RE GOING TO GET SOME BACKGROUND ON GOODNIGHT RANCH, UM, THE ORIGINAL PUD, UM, THE CONCEPT OF SUPERIORITY IN THIS CASE, UM, AND THE PUD AMENDMENT.

AND THEN AS I SAID, THAT THE ACTION IN THIS CASE IS THAT THE PARKS BOARD WILL BE MAKING A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL, UH, WITH REGARD TO THE PARKLAND.

UM, SO NEXT SLIDE NUMBER THREE.

.

SO BASICALLY, UM, THIS, THIS PART AMENDMENT IS A ZONING CASE.

UM, AND IT'S CURRENTLY IN REVIEW, UM, WHEN PUDS ARE NEW, UH, WHEN A NEW POD COMES FORWARD, THEN IT'S, IT'S ALWAYS EVALUATED FOR SUPERIORITY AT THE TIME.

SO, UM, I WANT TO CLARIFY THAT THIS PUD WAS ORIGINALLY APPROVED IN 2006.

SO, UM, WE, WE WILL, WE'LL BE LOOKING AT SUPERIORITY THROUGH THAT LENS, UH, BUT WE CAN ALSO ASK ABOUT CURRENT CODE, UM, FOR CONTEXT.

UM, SO THE PUTT AMENDMENTS, UM, SO ONCE A PUTT IS APPROVED, PLAN UNIT DEVELOPMENT IS APPROVED.

UM, THEY CAN BE AMENDED AND, UH, BASICALLY USUALLY THAT THOSE PUTT AMENDMENTS ADD ADDITIONAL ENTITLEMENTS.

AND SO WE LOOK AT THE SUPERIORITY THAT WAS PUT IN PLACE AT THE TIME OF THE ORIGINAL PUD, AND THEN THAT CAN BE MODIFIED FOR ONE OR MORE REVIEW DISCIPLINES.

SO WE HAVE PARKS, WE HAVE HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION, ALL THESE DIFFERENT THINGS.

AND SO ULTIMATELY WHEN COUNCIL SEES IT, UM, ALL THE RESPECTIVE BOARDS HAVE, HAVE LOOKED AT IT AND THEY MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON THEIR PARTICULAR DISCIPLINE.

THE IDEA IS THAT, UM, ON BALANCE IT STAYS SUPERIOR, UM, HER WHAT IT WAS BEFORE.

SO THE WEIGHTS CAN SHIFT AROUND A BIT, BUT, UM, THE PUDGE SHOULD STILL BE SUPERIOR.

UM, AND THAT'S KIND OF, ONE OF THE CONCEPTS OF THE PUD IS THAT IT IS SUPERIOR TO, UM, THE CODE.

SO, UM, THIS SLIDE ALSO SHOWS THE LOCATION.

AND SO, UM, YOU, IT IS ROUGHLY BISECTED BY SLAUGHTER LANE, UM, EAST OF 35, IT'S SHOWN IN RED ON THIS MAP, AND IT'S JUST BELOW, JUST SOUTH OF ONION CREEK, METROPOLITAN PARK.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO THERE'S A LOT OF BACKGROUND HERE IN TERMS OF THE TIMELINE.

I'M GONNA JUST KIND OF BREEZE THROUGH THIS, BUT WE KIND OF GO BACK TO 2004 FOR WHEN THIS BEGAN THE, THE ORIGINAL APPLICATION.

UM, THE PUD WAS APPROVED IN 2006 AND THEN IN 2011, UH, THE APPLICANT PETITION TO CREATE A MUNICIPAL MANAGEMENT DISTRICT.

AND WE'LL, WE'LL HAVE MORE ON THAT IN A BIT.

UM, THIS, THIS, UH, DISTRICT WAS ALSO APPROVED BY THE CITY IN 2014 AND ALSO IN 2014, THE ONION CREEK, UH, METROPOLITAN PARK, UH, HAD A MASTER PLAN THAT WAS APPROVED.

SO THAT MASTER PLAN IS A KIND OF A TEMPLATE THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT TO SEE WHAT THAT PARK COULD LOOK LIKE.

AND, UM, AGAIN, THAT ONION CREEK IS JUST TO THE NORTH OF THIS DEVELOPMENT.

AND, UM, THEN IN 2016, THIS PET AMENDMENT WAS STARTED AND I'LL HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE ON THAT LATER.

UM, AND IN THE MOON TIME THEY HAVE BEEN BUILDING SUBDIVISIONS, UH, MOSTLY AS PART OF THE NORTH PHASE.

SO EIGHT SUBDIVISIONS HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED, UM, NORTH OF SLAUGHTER, AND THERE ARE THREE NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL SITES WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ROUGHLY 1300 RESIDENTIAL UNITS AND THEY, THE APPLICANT NOTED 728 OF THOSE ARE AFFORDABLE AT 65 AND 80% MFI.

SO NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NUMBER FIVE.

SO THE MUNICIPAL MANAGEMENT DISTRICT IS A, AN ENTITY THAT IS CREATED BY THE STATE.

AND, UM, IT WAS, THERE WAS A STATE BILL FOR THIS.

HOWEVER, IT WAS ALSO APPROVED BY THE CITY.

IT HAS TO BE APPROVED BY THE CITY.

SO THE WAY OF DOING THAT IS THROUGH THIS CONSENT AGREEMENT.

AND MANY OF YOU WILL REMEMBER THE CONSENT AGREEMENT FROM THREE RECENTLY THAT IT CAME BEFORE PARKS BOARD.

SO, UM, THERE'S A LOT OF DETAIL IN THERE.

UM, I'LL THEN REALLY GET INTO IT TOO MUCH, BUT SOME OF IT RELATES TO PARK DEVELOPMENT, THE TIMING OF THAT AND THE TAXING OF THE DISTRICT.

UM, SO THIS DISTRICT IS ALSO KNOWN AS A TAXING DISTRICT.

UM, THE FULL NAME IS THE ONION CREEK METRO PARK DISTRICT.

AND THE IDEA IS THAT THE TAXES AND YOU CAN SEE ON THIS SLIDE, THE AREA OUTLINED IN RED IS THE DISTRICT PROPER.

AND SO THE RESIDENTS OF THAT DISTRICT, THE TAXES THAT THEY PAY

[00:55:01]

ARE, ARE USED TO OPERATE AND MAINTAIN THE PARKS.

AND THEY ALSO GO TO MAINTAIN THE ONION CREEK METROPOLITAN PARK TO THE NORTH.

SO AS PART OF THIS, UM, THE PARKS THAT ARE WITHIN THE DISTRICT ARE THERE DEDICATED TO THE DISTRICT AND THEY ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

SO THAT'S, I THINK AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION TO SAY THAT THESE ARE ALL PUBLIC PARKS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

THEY'RE A HUNDRED PERCENT OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

OKAY.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NUMBER SIX.

SO WHY THE PUTT AMENDMENT AND WHAT CHANGED FROM THE 2006? THERE WERE ORIGINALLY 35, 33 UNITS ENTITLED.

AND I THINK THAT THE PARKS BOARD IS PROBABLY MOSTLY CONCERNED WITH THIS RESIDENTIAL NUMBER, UM, BASED ON PARK REQUIREMENTS THAT, THAT 35 33 IS GOING TO SIX OH THREE, THREE IS WHAT THIS SLIDE SAYS, BUT ACTUALLY I THINK IT'S SIX OH EIGHT THREE.

I THINK THAT MIGHT BE A MISTAKE.
