UM, AND BEFORE WE GET INTO, UM, OTHER ITEMS. SO THE ONLY ONES THAT I HAVE, UM, FOR DISCUSSION RIGHT NOW ARE THE B ONE AND B TWO TOGETHER THE FIVE AND B SIX TOGETHER.

I THINK THAT'S, THAT'S IT.

UM, NOW ITEM THE PARKER HOUSE CASE, UH, I KNOW WE HAVE STEVE SADUSKY HOPEFULLY ON THE LINE WITH US.

ARE YOU WITH US, MR. SADECKI HIT STAR SIX TO UNMUTE.

YES.

GREAT.

UM, SO WE ARE, UH, I'VE, I'VE PUT THIS ONE ON THE CONSENT AGENDA BECAUSE THERE IS NO, UM, OPPOSITION SIGN UP TO SPEAK, UH, AGAINST IT.

UM, SO WE WOULD JUST BE HEARING FROM THE APPLICANT AND GETTING A STAFF PROPOSAL.

UH, THE, UM, UH, IF WE COULD GET SOME INFORMATION FROM YOU THAT MIGHT INFORM THE COMMISSION ON WHETHER OR NOT TO KEEP THIS ON CONSENT, I COULD SPECIFICALLY, THERE'S AN INTEREST IN WHY THE, UM, THE HISTORIC COMMISSION, UH, VOTED AGAINST THIS REZONING.

AND, UM, IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT, UH, THAT WE NEED TO CONSIDER FURTHER.

SO IF YOU COULD ENLIGHTEN US ALL ON THAT, I APPRECIATE IT.

YOU HAPPY TO BE IN THE COMMISSIONERS, HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE.

THIS CASE WENT BEFORE HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION IN MAY, AND THEY DID VOTE AGAINST THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGE, UH, THE ENTIRE TRACT, BUT THE SOUND SLIPPED AROUND INCLUDING THE BACK PARKING LOT HAD BEEN ZONED HISTORIC.

THERE WAS A PROPOSAL THAT THE LANDMARK COMMISSION REVIEWED AND APPROVED FOR A NEW BUILDING BEHIND THE HISTORIC HOUSE AT THE END OF LAST YEAR, UH, THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGE, BUT THERE HAVE NOT BEEN A PLAN FOR HER CONSTRUCTION SUBMITTED ON THAT YET.

AND THE LANDMARK COMMISSION'S DECISION TO RECOMMEND AGAINST THE HISTORIC ZONING WAS THAT IF THIS WAS THE BUILDING THAT IS NOT BUILT, THEY DON'T HAVE ANY AUTHORITY TO REVIEW THE PLANS FOR HITTING NEW CONSTRUCTION BEHIND THE HOUSE.

RIGHT.

SO, UM, IN ESSENCE, THE COMMISSION WAS VOTING AGAINST THE REMOVAL BECAUSE, UM, UH, THEY WANT TO HAVE, UH, SOME OVERSIGHT OVER THE PART OF THE, THE SITE THAT IS THE PARKING LOT THAT, UM, WE'LL GET SOMETHING BUILT ON IT BECAUSE AT THIS POINT WITH THE REZONING, THERE'S NO GUARANTEE THAT THE PROPOSAL THAT'S OUT THERE, IT WOULD BE THE ONE ACTUALLY BUILT.

IS THAT CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT.

OKAY, GREAT.

ARE THERE ANY COMMISSIONERS WHO WANT TO PULL THIS ONE OR FURTHER DISCUSS COMMISSIONER SECRET? I WOULD LIKE TO POLL THIS.

I HEARD FROM CAM PACK TODAY AND THEY ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT.

WHAT THE, EXCUSE ME, WHAT THE 10

[00:10:01]

FOOT SETBACK THEY WANT.

WE'LL PULL IT FOR DISCUSSION.

YOU JUST WANNA MAKE SURE IT'S READ INTO THE RECORD, THE THREE AND THE ITEM A, THE PARKER HOUSE.

I'M SORRY IS NOT BA IS, UM, THERE WE GO.

SO B NINE IS PULLED FOR CONSENT UP FOR DISCUSSION AND, UM, AND THEN ON B 11, UM, I'M NOT INTERESTED IN PULLING IT BACK.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS ARE AWARE.

THIS WAS THE ONE WHERE YOU HAD ALL THE COMMISSIONERS AGREE THAT, UH, THEY OUGHT TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND COME UP WITH SOME REAL STRONG CONDITIONS THAT WOULD CONVINCE US TO ALLOW DEVELOPMENT IN THE CRITICAL ZONE.

RIGHT.

UM, SO STAFF IS RECOMMENDING IT.

I THINK, UH, THE FORMAL STAFF HAS GENERALLY KIND OF A HIGH BAR, UH, BUT, UM, WE HAVE A LITTLE, WE'RE NOT TOO HEAVY TONIGHT.

SO, UM, IF YOU ALL WOULD LIKE TO, UH, JUST WALK THROUGH THAT ONE, THAT'S, THAT'S SOMETHING WE HAVE TIME TO DO TONIGHT, FOR SURE.

COMMISSIONER CIGARETTE.

THE PROPERTY ADDRESS IS SEVEN ONE THREE FIVE EASTERN WHITE BOULEVARD SERVICE ROAD, EASTBOUND.

IT IS LOCATED WITHIN THE SOUTHEAST COMBINED NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN AREA.

THE REQUEST IS TO CHANGE THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP FOR INDUSTRY TO MULTIFAMILY LAND USE.

IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED BY STAFF.

THERE IS A LETTER OF SUPPORT FROM THE SOUTHEAST COMBINED NEIGHBORHOODS SCENE WITH EMISSIONS.

GOOD EVENING, MR. CHAIR, THIS IS WENDY ROSE WITH THE PLANNING AND ZONING DEPARTMENT.

I WOULD LIKE TO GO OVER THE ZONING CASE IF YOU'RE READY.

WE'RE READY.

GO AHEAD.

THANK YOU.

UH, THIS, THIS IS THE CORRESPONDING ZONING CASE.

THE PROPERTY CONTAINS ONE VACANT RESIDENCE.

IT HAS L I N P ZONING

[00:15:01]

THAT WAS ESTABLISHED IN OCTOBER OF 2002.

AT THE TIME THE SOUTHEAST PLAN WAS ADOPTED.

CARSON CREEK EXTENDS THROUGH THE SOUTH PORTION OF THIS PROPERTY.

UH, THERE IS AN INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL PARK TO THE EAST, A DATA CENTER WITHIN THE MED CENTER DEVELOPMENT TO THE SOUTH AND A HOTEL AND AN OFFICE BUILDING TO THE WEST ON CASEY BRIDGE COURT.

THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING MF FOUR AND ZONING FOR THE ABILITY TO CONSTRUCT UP TO 375 APARTMENT UNITS.

AND, UH, THE APPLICANT WILL ALSO, UM, INTENDED TO ENDEAVOR TO DEDICATE 16.6 ACRES TO THE SOUTH OF THE REZONING ALONG CARSON CREEK IS PUBLIC PARK PARKLAND.

JUST TO BE CLEAR, THIS WOULD BE DEDICATED AS PART OF A SITE PLANNER, AND IT IS NOT IN THIS REZONING AREA.

AS MAUREEN MENTIONED, THE STAFF HAS BEEN ABLE TO RECOMMEND THE APPLICANT'S REZONING REQUEST, AND WE ARE RECOMMENDING MAINTAINING L I N T A REZONING WOULD COUNTRY CONTINUE TO PRINT OF REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF DUST REAL ACREAGE ADDING IN AND RESIDENTIAL USES COULD RESULT IN LAW.

THE LOSS OF MORE INDUSTRIAL USES, UH, INDUSTRIAL USES GENERALLY DO NOT SUPPORT RESIDENTIAL USES.

AND ALTHOUGH THE AIRPORT GATEWAY, SO DIVISION DOES INCLUDE A MIXED USE INCOME COMPONENT.

ALL PLATTED LOTS HAVE ACCESS TO A LOCAL STREET AND THAT SITUATION AND THE PLAN USES OUR OFFICE AND COMMERCIAL.

AS I, UH, MAUREEN MENTIONED THE SOUTHEAST COMBINED CONTACT TEAM AND THE LOS ARE BOLUS H O HAVE PROVIDED LETTERS OF SUPPORT FOR THE ZONING AND RELATED NPA CASES.

UH, SO THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING TO JUST MAINTAIN THE EXISTING L I N P ZONING ON THIS PROPERTY AND I'M AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS.

RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

UM, DO WE HAVE THE APPLICANT WITH US, MR. HARTMAN? ARE YOU HERE FOR THE APPLICANT? YES, I AM.

CHAIR CAN STAFF.

MY PRESENTATION IS THAT YES.

AND WE DO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF DELAY, SO MAKE SURE TO TURN DOWN YOUR COMPUTER.

AND IF YOU JUST WANT TO CUE THE SLIDE, I WILL SAY, OKAY.

EVERY TIME WE'VE GOTTEN THERE, WE'LL DO IT SOMEWHERE WITH MR. HARMON.

YOU ARE BREAKING UP A LITTLE BIT.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN GET OFF SPEAKER PHONE OR TAKE OTHER MEASURES TO CONNECT A LITTLE MORE CLEARLY.

YES.

I WILL SPEAK MORE CLEARLY AS MY PRESENTATION NUTS.

IT IS.

YES.

WE'RE ON SLIDE ONE CHAIR, COMMISSIONERS, DAVID HARTMAN ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT FIND REAL ESTATE FOR SOME NEW ONE 35 PIECE THAN THE WHITE MULTIFAMILY.

WE HAVE MULTIPLE MEMBERS OF THE PROJECT TEAM AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THE PROJECT PROJECT TRACKS 83 AND AT CASEY BRIDGE COURT.

NEXT SLIDE WAS ONLY MATT SHOWS THE SUBJECT TRACKS ZONED L I N P AS WELL AS THE EASTERN SOUTHERN WESTERN IS 56 ACRES OF CSM.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS GRAPH SHOWS THAT THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER DID SUBJECT TRACK.

THAT'S BEING REZONED FROM INDUSTRY TO MULTIFAMILY RECREATION AND OPEN SPACE.

AND THAT WAS ENVISIONED UNDER THIS ROOM.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS SHOWS THAT A SUBJECT TRACKING THAT ALL OUTSIDE THE AIRPORT OVERLAY A THREE THAT'S IN BLOOM IN BETHEL.

RESIDENTIAL IS AUTHORIZED IN THIS AREA.

NEXT SLIDE.

WELL, RECENTLY WE'RE PURCHASING 40 ACRES.

WE ZOOM INTO NORTH 18 ACRES NORTH OF CARSON CREEK.

THAT'S A VACANT RESIDENTIAL HOMESTEAD ADJACENT TO THE REST IS 56 ACRES.

THIS, THIS BODY, AS WELL AS CITY COUNCIL APPROVED, UM, A MULTIFAMILY PROJECT TO THE WEST AT 1,625, THAT WAS 0%, UM, AFFORDABLE HOUSING COMPONENT.

AND ALSO TO THE ARREST IMMEDIATELY WAS 31 12TH CASEY BRIDGE, WHICH AUTHORIZES SERVICE STATION DETAIL RESTAURANT OFFICE WAREHOUSE, WE'RE PROPOSING 375 MONTHS UNITS.

EXCUSE ME.

THE TYPICAL REGARD TO STYLE APARTMENTS WITH ACCESS TO BIN WHITE, I'LL DISCUSS THE 16.6 PUBLIC PARKLAND DEDICATION.

WE'RE REQUESTING HIM AT PRESENTING PRIMARILY FLEXIBILITY BEFORE STORY PROJECTS, FOUR STORY BUILDING.

I MEAN, YOU'RE OVERLOADING HIM.

MR. HARTMAN.

YOU'RE OVERLOADING YOUR MIC JUST A LITTLE BIT.

IF YOU CAN BACK OFF IT JUST A LITTLE BIT.

I THINK YOU'LL GET, BE MORE CLEAR.

OKAY.

NEXT BITE IS, DID JASON ADJACENT USES? THAT'S GREAT.

THANK YOU.

YOU'LL SEE THE SUBJECT TRACK 18 ACRES IN MAROON AND THE BALANCE OF THE TRACTOR REMAINDER OUTLINED IN MAROON WITH THE CSN NEW TO THE WEST, AS WELL AS THE ADJACENT USES.

I REFERENCED THE HOTEL OFFICE.

THERE ARE SEVERAL, SEVERAL OTHER HOTELS IMMEDIATELY TO

[00:20:01]

THE EASTERN SOUTH, THEIR FLEX OFFICE DATA CENTERS, THE PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE TO THE SOUTH.

NEXT SLIDE, I THINK STEPH MENTIONED IN THE REPORT.

THE IMAGINE AUSTIN SHOWS THIS AS A JOB CENTER AND STAFF THOUGHT IT WASN'T APPROPRIATE TO HAVE RESIDENTIAL.

IN CONTRAST, WE BELIEVE STRONGLY THAT HOUSING SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR EMPLOYERS, AND WE HAVE COMMITMENT FOR OUR PROJECT TO PROVIDE THAT HOUSING.

THIS SLIDE DEMONSTRATES THAT OUR PROJECT IS RIGHT IN LINE WITH THE ADJACENT RESIDENTIAL THAT IS AUTHORIZED IN THIS AREA AND COATING SEVERAL THOUSAND WAS IN THE LOCKET.

LUCKY PBA FOR RESIDENTIAL.

NEXT SIDE SHOWS THE CONCEPT PLAN WITH THE TYPICAL AMENITIES PER DOG PARK, AS WELL AS A TOWN HOME CARRIAGE AND FORCED AWAY RESIDENTS OF THE APARTMENTS.

NEXT SLIDE, I'D LIKE TO FOCUS ON THIS MULTIFAMILY AND PUBLIC PARKLAND CONCEPT PLAN.

THIS AREA IS PARKLAND DEFICIENT, AND WE RECEIVED OBTAINED THE NERVE STIMULATION LETTER FROM PARTS, AND IT REQUIRES A MURAL PROVIDING CONNECTIVITY TO METRO CENTER DRIVE AND A FUTURE TRAIL HEADS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT FEATURE TRAIL HEAD AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS SIDE.

AGAIN, THIS IS AN EARLY TERMINATION LETTER FROM PART AND ALL THOSE SHOWN THEM AS A CONCEPT PLAN.

A DETERMINATION LETTERS SHOW REQUIRES THAT THE PARKLAND ONSITE IS LOCKED IN THE NEXT SLIDE, SLIDE 11 WE'LL SKIP AND GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

SLIDE, 12 PARKLAND DEDICATION AND RECREATIONAL TRAIL SYSTEM.

THIS SHOWS AGAIN, THE PROJECT WITH PARKLAND AND WITH SOME OF THE SIDEWALKS THAT CONNECT ADJACENT TO THE ADJACENT MET CINDER TRAIL NETWORK.

NEXT SLIDE, NEXT WINTER TRAIL.

THIS GOLF COURSE THAT SHOWS THE TYPE OF AMENITIES THAT WE WOULD PROPOSE ON OFF OUR CLAIM.

THE NEXT SIDE SHOWS THE BURST ROOMS FOR PLANNING THAT'S GOING ON FOR A MULTIMODAL CONNECTION WITH THE SUBJECT TRACKED DIRECTLY IN THIS AREA.

THE NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE ZONING COMPARISON FOCUSING ON THE AFFORDABLE COMPONENT IN THE SECOND ROW, OBVIOUSLY LA WOULD HAVE ZERO AFFORDABLE COMPONENT IN OUR DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSIONS WITH THE CONTACTING WITH COMMITTED TO VOLUNTARILY CONTRIBUTING FOR COMMITTING TO 10% AFFORDABLE UNITS AT 80% MFI BASED ON OUR DISCUSSIONS WITH PLANNING COMMISSIONERS THIS WEEK, WE'RE ANNOUNCING TODAY TO COMMISSIONERS THAT WORK ENHANCING THAT COMMITMENT TO 5% AT 60% OF MSI AND 5% THAT EITHER 80% MFI, THE NEXT SIDE FOCUSES ON JUST A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT WAYS THAT ARE OUT OF THE PARKLAND, FULFILLS MULTIPLE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES, INCLUDING GOAL NUMBER ONE, OBJECTIVE, NUMBER ONE FOR HOUSING, AS WELL AS PARKLAND IN THIS, AND THEY WOULD PLAN.

AND THEN THE NEXT SLIDE IS THE FINAL SIDE IS JUST A SUMMARY OF OUR REASONS TO SUPPORT, INCLUDING THE LAST COUPLE OF SLIDES, FOCUS MARKETING WITH DISCOUNT AVAILABLE TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, ABI EMPLOYEES, AND AN ONSITE COURTESY POLICE OFFICERS, WHICH WAS REQUESTED BY THE CONTENT CONTACT TEAM THAT WE'RE HAPPY TO SUPPORT.

AND AGAIN, I'D REITERATE THAT OUR COMMITMENT TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS 5%, 8%, 5%, 60%, AND I'M AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

GREAT.

THANK YOU, MR. HARTMAN.

UM, I'M GOING TO OPEN IT UP TO, UH, SUPPORTERS.

UM, DO WE HAVE MAC MIGUEL WORTH ON THE LINE AND THEN IT'LL BE TEMPLE KENNEDY.

YES.

SMACK MAC GLASS.

HE HAS THE APPLICANT AND I'M AVAILABLE FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN, UH, THE ONLY OTHER PERSON I HAVE SIGNED UP IS ANNA GARY.

UM, AND I THINK YOU WERE IN SUPPORT OF THE PROJECT, ALTHOUGH I HAVE YOU DOWN AS OPPOSED ARE YOU ON THE LINE? YES, THIS IS ANNA.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? I CAN GO AHEAD.

OKAY, GREAT.

YES.

UM, MY NAME IS SANDRA , COUGHING COMMISSIONERS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PICKING YOUR COUNTRY.

LISTEN WITH MY VISIT WITH US.

UM, I'M THE IMMEDIATE PAST CHAIR OF DANCED AT THIS COMPANY NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN CONTACT TEAM.

I ALSO NEED A STATE THAT I ALSO SIT ON THE ZONING AND PLANNING COMMISSION, BUT I'M NOT IN ANY WAY SPEAKING FOR ON THE BEHALF OF THE SAP COMMISSION.

UM, YES, THE CONTRACT TEAM IS UNANIMOUSLY SUPPORTING THIS NEW DEVELOPMENT.

UM, WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT ANY OPPORTUNITY TO GET ANY HELPING STOCK.

UM, YOU MAY NOT BE AWARE OR SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW THE, UM, TECH STOCK IS HAVING MOVING THEIR HEADQUARTERS TO WITHIN OUR COMBINED CONTACT TEAM AREA.

SO WE NEED TO PLAN ACCORDINGLY FOR THEM, FOR THEM.

THEN OF COURSE, THERE'S, UM, FUTURE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES THAT FLOW WITH THE MED CENTER.

AND WE DON'T MOST, YOU KNOW, WE ARE VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THE OFFER THAT THE APPLICANT HAS PROVIDED REGARDING THE HOUSING TO KEEP A LITTLE BIT OF

[00:25:01]

PERSPECTIVE.

THERE'S SOME CHALLENGES THAT WE ENCOUNTER IN THIS STUFF, THIS COMPANY WHO HAD CONTACT HIM, AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE MAPPING, THE INFORMATION THAT I PROVIDED TO YOU TO, TO THE COMMISSIONERS THIS MORNING, UM, WE POUND DOWN BECAUSE OF THE INDUSTRIAL, UM, ZONING MANY TIMES WHAT WE WANT AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET HOUSING.

WE CAN NOT BECAUSE OF THE CLOSE PROXIMITY OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS.

AND SO WE LOST ONE OPPORTUNITY ALONG STASSNEY, WHICH WE WERE SO EXCITED ABOUT, BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE, WE COULD NOT DO THAT.

AND IN DOING THAT, WE VISITED WITH THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND WE APPRECIATE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT BECAUSE THEY KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE.

UM, AND AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'VE GOT A SMALL SAMPLING OF THE HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS THAT ARE LOCATED WITHIN OUR AREA.

SO WE LOOK FORWARD TO ANY OPPORTUNITY THAT WE CAN TO CHANGE THE ZONING FROM INDUSTRIAL TO MIXED USE OR HOUSING OR RESIDENTIAL.

UM, THE OTHER OPPORTUNITY, ANOTHER ISSUE WITH YOU WITH THIS, THE AIRPORT OVERLAY, UH, YOU CAN SEE ON THE FAR RIGHT HAND, UM, I HAVE THE MAP THAT I PROVIDED A LITTLE X AND BECAUSE OF THE AIRPORT OVERLAY, A DEVELOPER APPROACHED US ABOUT RESIDENTIAL, UM, AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE RESIDENTIAL HOUSING.

AND WE HAD, WELL, THE APPLICANT WAS TURNED DOWN BECAUSE OF THE AIRPORT OVERLAY.

SO WE HAD TO DEAL WITH HAZARDOUS ISSUES, UM, HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS ISSUES AND, UH, AIRPORT OVERLAY.

AND, UM, WE HAD ONE OPPORTUNITY FOR, WE DID GET, AND THIS WAS IN SEPTEMBER OF LAST YEAR WHERE ONE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT WAS CONVERTED FROM INDUSTRIAL TO RESIDENTIAL, AND WE BREAK CITED ABOUT THAT.

UM, AND SO WE JUST LOOKED FOR ANY OPPORTUNITY THAT WE TO, UM, ADDRESS ANY HEALTHY NEEDS.

ALSO ENVIRONMENT IS PRETTY IMPORTANT TO US.

THE FACT THAT THEY'RE PROVIDING THE PARK PARKING TO PARK SPACE, UH, IN STATES ALONG CARSON CREEK, WHICH IS, UM, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, UM, WE VALUE OUR CREEKS AND OUR ENVIRONMENT.

AND ALSO WE, UM, NOTE, WE ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE'RE A FOOD DESERT AND ALSO ON THE MAP, YOU WILL SEE WHERE THE, YOU ARE.

UM, YOU KNOW, UPPER LEFT HAND SIDE, YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE WITH THIS URBAN ROOTS, SEEN THAT INDUSTRIAL AREA.

WE WERE ABLE TO GET FOOD, HOPEFULLY GROWING IN OUR AREA.

SO THOSE ARE THE CHALLENGES THAT WE ENCOUNTER.

SO WE WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

UM, MR. HOWARD, DO YOU WANT TO CLOSE? THIS IS DAVID HARTMAN.

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING FURTHER TO ADD ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT.

BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

UM, YOUR SECRET, GO AHEAD.

YOU'RE MUTED.

WAIT, THERE YOU GO.

YEAH.

OKAY.

UH, I WANT TO KNOW HOW THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS GOING TO BE MEMORIALIZED.

IS IT A PRIVATE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DO THIS? YES.

COMMISSIONER SEEKER.

DAVID HARTMAN.

YES, WE WERE.

THIS IS THE LIMIT FOR A REASON.

SO WE WERE VOLUNTARILY COMMITTING TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND IT WILL BE A MEMORIALIZED BY COUNCIL THIRD RATING VIA A PRIVATE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT WITH ONE OF THE ORGANIZATIONS THAT HANDLES AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN TOWN.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

YES.

DO I HAVE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING? ALL IN FAVOR GREEN AND THAT IS NINE NOW.

THAT'S COMMISSIONER HOWARD.

UM, BUT NOPE, THERE WE ARE.

THERE WE GO.

OKAY.

10.

OKAY.

UM, I'LL GO AHEAD.

AND I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS.

UM, MS. MEREDITH, UH, ARE YOU STILL ON THE LINE I'M HERE? UH, I WAS WONDERING WHY, UM, THE APPLICANT'S BACKUP SEEMS TO INDICATE THAT THE FLOODING STILL SHOWS INDUSTRIAL ZONING OVER A LARGE PART OF THIS AREA.

UM, BUT WHEN I WAS LOOKING AT MAPS, I SAW A LOT OF RESIDENTIAL, BOTH SINGLE FAMILY AND MULTIFAMILY IN AREAS THAT SEEM TO BE DESIGNATED ON THE FLOOD FOR INDUSTRIAL.

I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD TELL ME, BUT THOSE AREAS JUST PREDATE THE FLUM OR, UH, I MEAN, IS THAT ACCURATE? CAN YOU JUST ADVISE, CAUSE I TAKE IT THAT PROBABLY A LOT OF STAFF'S OPPOSITION COMES FROM, UH, UH, REZONING THIS TO BE RESIDENTIAL INSIDE THAT DESIGNATED INDUSTRIAL AREA.

UM, LET ME TRY TO PULL UP THE ZULU MAP.

UM, SO I SEE SOME RURAL RESIDENTIAL, SOME LIMITED

[00:30:01]

INDUSTRIAL, SOME CSE LIMITED INDUSTRIAL FUSION OVERLAY.

I'M NOT ACTUALLY SEEING WHERE HE IS SEEING THE RESIDENTIAL.

UH, I'M SAYING YOU SEE IT ON THE GROUND, NOT ON THE ZONING MAP TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THERE.

THERE'S A LARGE SUBDIVISION AS PART OF A POD, I GUESS.

AND THEN TO THE WEST, IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS SOME MULTIFAMILY OR MIXED USE.

OKAY.

UM, LET ME, I HAVE TO CHECK SOME, UM, I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S DURING THE PLANNING PROCESS, LET ME PULL UP THAT, UM, PLUM OR WAITING IF I COULD HAVE THE AAV STAFF PULL UP THE, UH, THE MAP THAT SHOWS THE PARKLAND, UH, CONCEPTUAL IMPROVEMENTS AND SHERIFF INSTEAD OF DIVISION REGRESSING SUBDIVISION IS BERNSON AND SOUTHWEST PARKWAY IS ON HIS BIRTHDAY.

IT'S A RIGHT AT THE CORNER OF THAT.

AND HE WAS WINNING WITH WITHIN THE INDUSTRIALS.

THAT WAS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO THAT AS WELL.

SURE.

IF YOU CAN REPEAT THE EXHIBIT YOU'RE REQUESTING, UH, IT WAS THE, UM, ONE OF THE SLIDES IN THE APPLICANT'S DECK THAT HAS SHOWS THE GREEN AREA WITH SOME TRAILS IS THE PARKLAND IMPROVEMENT.

IS THAT THE CRUX LINE? YES, THAT IS.

THANK YOU.

AND SO ACTUALLY THIS SLIDE SHOWS SOME OF WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

SO YOU CAN SEE TO THE EAST, THERE THERE'S A, WHAT APPEARS TO BE A SINGLE FAMILY SUBDIVISION THERE.

AND THEN I BELIEVE THE AREA JUST DUE SOUTH W UH, OR WEST OF THE, OF THE LAND IS, UM, ON, UH, ALSO FRONTING BEEN WHITE IS AS A CSV ZONING.

UM, YEAH, I DON'T KNOW IF DURING THAT PLANNING PROCESS, UM, Y DURING THE PLANNING PROCESS ON THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP, THAT SUBDIVISION THAT SINGLE FAMILY SUBDIVISION WAS NOT GIVEN SINGLE FAMILY LAND JUICE.

I DON'T KNOW IF, UM, THAT IF THE THOUGHT WAS, UM, IF IT'S TO WHERE THE AIRPORT OVERLAY, THE THOUGHT WAS, THAT SHOULD TRANSITION TO SOMETHING OTHER THAN SEATTLE FAMILY.

UM, SO, UM, I REALLY APOLOGIZE TO CUT YOU OFF.

I JUST I'M LIMITED ON MY TIME.

UM, BUT I THINK I GET IT.

THANK YOU, MS. MEREDITH.

UH, SO THE APPLICANT, UM, I JUST WANT CLARITY ON THE PARKLAND DEDICATION HERE.

THIS IS A CONCEPT THAT REFLECTS THE EARLY DETERMINATION LETTER YOU HAVE FROM PART, IS THAT CORRECT? THAT'S CORRECT.

AND DO I ALSO HAVE IT CORRECT THAT CARSON CREEK IS THE BOUNDARY OF THE PORTION OF THIS LOT THAT YOU ARE PURCHASING? SO WHAT WE WOULD SEE THROUGH DEDICATION OF THIS IS THE PARKLAND ON THE NORTHERN SIDE OF CARSON CREEK, AND THAT THE SOUTHERN PART WOULD NEED TO BE ADDRESSED BY WHOEVER OWNS THAT PART OF THE PARCEL.

IS THAT CORRECT? UH, THIS IS MACK, THE APPLICANT THAT IS INCORRECT.

UM, WE ARE CARSON CREEK FORMS, THE BOUNDARY, THE 18 PLUS ACRES THAT, UH, WE ARE REZONING, BUT THAT IS PART OF 40 ACRES THAT WE HAVE UNDER CONTRACT TO PURCHASE.

SO THE ENTIRETY OF THE PARKLAND, YOU SEE ILLUSTRATED BALD WITHIN THE LAND THAT WE CONTROL AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO DEDICATE AS PARKS.

RIGHT.

FANTASTIC.

I ASSUME SOME OF THAT IS FLOOD PLAIN, BUT, UM, IT SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE DEDICATING AN EXCESS OF, OF WHAT IS LIKELY REQUIRED BY CODE.

WELL, AN ACCIDENT THAT WE HAVE, UM, WE HAVE, THERE IS SOME FLOOD PLAIN, BUT THERE'S ALSO, UH, UH, AREA OUTSIDE, PLENTY OF BARE AMPLE AREA OUTSIDE THE FLOODPLAIN, WHICH IS WHERE THE TRAILS ARE ILLUSTRATED.

AND I UNDERSTAND THAT, UM, IT'S JUST AN EARLY DETERMINATION LETTER, BUT, UM, UH, ONCE YOU GO THROUGH THAT, UM, PART IS GOING TO BE PRETTY RETICENT TO, TO SHRINK THAT, UH, THAT LAND.

UM, IF YOU DO GET THIS A REZONING.

SO, UM, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'LL OPEN UP TO OTHER COMMISSIONERS,

[00:35:01]

QUITE SEE EVERYONE.

THERE WE GO.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS AROUND ROBIN COMMISSIONER HEMPHILL? GO AHEAD.

YES, THAT'S NOT THE QUESTION.

UM, I REMEMBER A CASE OF, UM, INDUSTRIAL GOING TO MULTIFAMILY SOMETIME LAST YEAR.

AND AT THAT POINT, UM, STAFF SAID THAT THEY WERE GOING TO START DOING SOME RESEARCH, UM, ON THE LOSS OF INDUSTRIAL LAND GOING TO RESIDENTIAL.

AND I'M WONDERING IF, UM, THIS, UH, RECOMMENDATION BY STAFF IS STEMMING FROM THAT, OR IF IT'S, UM, JUST IF THERE'S ANY FURTHER RESEARCH, THAT'S GIVING MORE METRICS BEHIND HOW MUCH INDUSTRIAL LAND IS BEING LOST, UM, AND WHERE, UM, IT NEEDS TO REMAIN.

SO THAT WOULD BE WHEN THIS, THIS IS WENDY RHODES, I CAN POTENTIALLY HELP OUT WITH THIS.

UH, YES, THERE IS A DRAFT STUDY REGARDING, UM, THE LOSS OF INDUSTRIAL ACREAGE.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT STUDY HAS BEEN FINALIZED YET.

UM, YES.

AND YES, THAT, UM, THE CONTENTS OF THAT STUDY, UH, WERE PART OF THE BASIS FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO RECOMMEND THIS PARTICULAR ZONING AND NPA CASE.

IS THERE ANY MORE DETAIL YOU CAN PROVIDE BEHIND THAT, EVEN THOUGH IT'S A DRAFT? UH, I, I WOULD HAVE TO SEE IF IT'S ALREADY KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

I HAVE SEEN A DRAFT, BUT I, I DON'T KNOW THAT IT'S BEEN, UH, FINALIZED OR IF IT'S, UH, WHERE IT GOES FROM, YOU KNOW, FROM ITS DRAFT STATE, UH, THAT WAS DONE AS PART OF THE LONG RANGE PLANNING GROUP.

OKAY.

UM, YEAH.

UM, I, I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS, UM, AS YOU SAID, FINALIZED TO THE POINT WHERE, UM, IT WILL BE CIRCULATED OUTSIDE OF THE DEPARTMENT, BUT IT'S SOMETHING WE CAN FOLLOW UP ON AND HAVE ANDREW REPORT BACK TO THE PLANNING COMMISSIONER.

YEAH.

DEFINITELY LIKE TO SEE THE OUTCOMES FROM THAT REPORT TO HELP US IN CASES LIKE THIS.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS QUESTIONS? GO AHEAD.

THANK YOU.

SHARE A FEW QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

UM, THE FIRST ONE WAS, UM, JUST TO CONFIRM AND KNOW, OTHERWISE WE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED A NOTE, BUT THERE THERE'S NO HAZARDOUS.

AND DO YOU KNOW THIS SITE? UH, YES.

THIS IS WENDY RHODES.

THE AUSTIN FIRE DEPARTMENT DID NOT IDENTIFY WITH LOCATING MULTIFAMILY RESIDENTS, BOTH USE OFF THE PROPERTY.

OKAY.

AND THEN THE SECOND QUESTION WAS, I KNOW THAT THIS IS OUTSIDE OFF THE OGLEBAY, THE AIRPORT OVERLAY.

IS THERE ANY SORT OF CONSIDERATION CONCERNED ON EXPANSION OF THAT OVER MAKING DO WHERE THIS HOUSING MIGHT BE BUILT? IF WE WERE TO MOVE THIS, I AM UNAWARE OF A PROPOSED EXPANSION OF THE AIRPORT OVERLAY ZONE BOUNDARIES.

HOWEVER, IF ONE WERE ADOPTED AND INCLUDED THIS PROPERTY, UH, THE APPLICABILITY OF LET'S SAY NOISE LEVEL REDUCTION, MEASURE MEASURES FOR APARTMENT UNITS.

UM, THOSE WOULD DEPEND ON WHETHER A PERMIT APPLICATION SUCH AS A SITE PLAN HAD BEEN FILED OR WHETHER THE DEVELOPER WAS, UM, PLANNING ON ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS.

UM, AND JUST TO FOLLOW UP ON A QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED EARLIER REGARDING, UM, PROPERTY THAT'S TO THE SOUTH AND EAST OF HERE ON, I THINK PERHAPS, UH, HOKEY LANE, UM, THOSE, THOSE WERE, UH, I THINK, I BELIEVE THOSE AREAS, UH, ARE IN THE AIRPORT OVERLAY ZONE, AND THAT MAY BE THE REASON WHY THEY WERE NOT GRANTED, UM, SINGLE FAMILY ON THE FLUM.

THEY WERE DESIGNATED AS SOMETHING ELSE.

UM, I WAS, UH, I WAS PART OF THE PLANNING EXERCISE THAT OCCURRED WITH THE SOUTHEAST PLAN BACK IN THE EARLY TWO THOUSANDS.

AND THAT'S MY RECOLLECTION.

ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS? ALL RIGHT.

DO WE HAVE A MOTION? UM, I'LL GO AHEAD.

AND, UH, I'LL MOVE APPROVAL.

DOES ANYONE WISH TO SECOND QUARTER SECOND BY COMMISSIONER THOMPSON? UM,

[00:40:01]

I'LL JUST SPEAK TO MY MOTION.

UH, I'M JUST, UH, REALLY ACTUALLY QUITE ECSTATIC ABOUT THE, UH, THE PARKLAND DEDICATION ON THIS SITE.

UM, WE'VE GOT CONNECTIVITY TO THE MED CENTER TRAILS, UH, DEDICATION IN EXCESS OF WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR.

UM, OF COURSE WE CAN'T TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UM, BUT THE, UH, THE PARKLAND DEDICATION, I THINK REALLY, UH, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU, WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE, THE TRAILINGS THAT ARE OUT THERE AND, AND THE SUGGESTION THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, BIKING ON THE, UH, THE FURNITURE WOULD OF 71 AS A, AS A GOOD THING TO BE DOING, UH, YOU KNOW, IF THIS, IF THIS COULD FORM THE ALTERNATIVE, AN ALTERNATIVE ROUTE, THAT KIND OF PARALLEL 71, I THINK THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC.

AND I KNOW THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS EXCITED ABOUT THIS AND, UM, YOU KNOW, ALL OF THAT CONSIDER, WELL, I AM CONCERNED ABOUT SOME OF THE LOSS OF INDUSTRIAL LAND.

UM, THE, A GOOD CHUNK OF THE SITE REMAINS INDUSTRIAL, AND IT'S THE PART OF THE SITE THAT IS ACTUALLY ADJACENT TO THE OTHER LIMITED INDUSTRIAL IN THE AREA.

SO IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE FOR THAT PERHAPS TO STAY AS INDUSTRIAL WHILE THIS GOES RESIDENTIAL.

UM, SO, UH, I THINK IT'S A REALLY GOOD PROJECT, AND I'M REALLY GLAD TO SEE THE GREEN SPACE BEING PRESERVED THERE ALONG THE CREEK.

WE HAVE ANY COMMISSIONERS WHO WANT TO SPEAK AT AN OPPOSITION OR NEUTRAL SPEAKING, DUDE, I THINK I'M GONNA VOTE FOR THIS.

THAT BEING SAID, UM, YOU KNOW, THIS IS, I UNDERSTAND STAFF'S ISSUE WITH US KIND OF DISPOSING A MORE INDUSTRIAL LAND HERE.

UM, STAFF HAS BEEN TRYING FOR YEARS TO GET US A NEW LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PARCELS OF LAND IN THE CITY THAT ARE DESPERATE TO BE HOUSING ON GREAT BUS LINES AND MAJOR CORRIDORS, AND A LOT OF PLACES THAT MAKE POSSIBLY MORE SENSE THAN A LOT OF WAYS.

YOU COULD LOOK AT IT INSTEAD OF ON A HIGHWAY.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE CAN'T DO IT BECAUSE WE HAVE RULES LIKE COMPATIBILITY.

IT DOESN'T OTHER RULES ARE A THOUSAND OF THE RULES TO PREVENT A LOT OF PARCELS THAT REALLY SHOULD BE HOUSING FROM BEING HOUSING.

AND SO THE DEVELOPERS HAVE PICKED OVER A LOT OF THE GOOD SITES AND THERE JUST AREN'T MANY GOOD SITES LEFT.

AND SO NOW WE'RE GOING TO START CHEWING UP INDUSTRIAL SPACE WHERE YOU SEE MORE HOMES ON HIGHWAYS.

AND UNTIL WE HAVE A LANDED ON THE CODE THAT ALLOWS FOR RESPONSIBLE LAND DEVELOPMENT, I GUESS THIS IS GOING TO BE OUR FIGHT.

IT'S JUST THE REAL SALMON HE COMMISSIONERS.

I WANT TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION, MR. THOMPSON, GO AHEAD.

I'M JUST LOOKING OUT AT THE SITE AND DRIVING BY.

YOU CAN SEE THAT ALL ALONG THE ACCESS ROAD, THERE ARE HALF A DOZEN BRAND NEW HOTELS THAT HAVE BEEN CREATED.

HOTEL IS A ALLOWED USE IN AN INDUSTRIAL SITE, AND IT'S NOT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET A FACTORY THERE.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET SOME SORT OF INDUSTRIAL USE.

IT'S JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN.

IT'S JUST GOING TO BE A HOTEL, JUST LIKE THE ONES ALL ALONG THAT STRETCH OF ROAD CRUSHERS, WE WANT TO SPEAK AGAINST OR NEUTRAL CRUSHERS.

WE WANT TO SPEAK IN FAVOR TERMS. ARGO HAS THE LAST SPEAKER.

UM, I THINK I WANT TO REPACK THE APPLICANT IS CONSIDERED AFFORDABILITY ASPECT, AND I ADOPTED THEM EARLIER.

I'M HAPPY TO SAY THAT THEY'RE NOW 5% AND 65% OF 80%.

I'M A FIVE AS IT CONTINUED CONVERSATIONS AND HOPEFULLY HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT THE PROJECT WILL LOOK LIKE.

I HOPE A GOOD TO COUNCIL.

THEY MIGHT CONSIDER IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO TO ALL DENPASAR AND 60% OF A FIVE 40 YEARS, UM, AND SAID THAT I DO SUPPORT THE PROJECT.

THEY REALLY APPRECIATE WHAT THE AFFORDABILITY IN WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS.

OKAY.

LAST SPEAKER AGAINST OR NEUTRAL IS THAT LET'S TAKE A VOTE ALL IN FAVOR OF GRANTING THE APPLICATION, UM, AS FILED GO GREEN.

ALRIGHT, THAT'S UNANIMOUS 10 ZERO.

UM, LET'S MOVE ON TO OUR NEXT CASE.

[Items B5 & B6]

UM, AS MEREDITH, WE STILL HAVE YOU ON THE LINE.

[00:45:03]

THE APPLICANT REQUESTED REMOVING THE CONDITIONS, UM, THAT LIMITED BUILDING HEIGHT TO 35 FEET.

UM, NEIGHBORS EXPRESSED SOME CONCERN ABOUT THE 60 FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT IN THE PROPOSED GR, UH, BUT WE'RE LESS CONCERNED AFTER STAFFING.

THE AGENT EXPLAINED COMPATIBILITY STANDARDS.

WE'LL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE HEIGHTS BELOW THE MAXIMUM AT THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY.

THE APPLICANT THROUGH THEIR AGENT DEVELOPED A CEO THAT WOULD PROHIBIT TWO LAND USES CLUB OR LODGE AND A COMMUNITY RECREATION.

PRIVATE THE APPLICATION ALSO AGREED TO DRAFT A PRIVATE RESTRICTIVE COVENANT.

AND IF YOU WANT MORE DETAILS ABOUT THAT, PLEASE ASK THE APPLICANT.

UM, THE VERTICAL MIXED USE BERLIN IS THE REMAINING ISSUE.

AS WE SEE IT, STAFF HAS OFFERED AN ALTERNATIVE RECOMMENDATION.

THAT INCLUDES THE P UH, WITHOUT THE, THE, THE BASIS FOR STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION.

THAT IS HISTORICALLY SONY HAS ONLY BEEN RECOMMENDED ON A NEARLY ON CORE TRANSIT OR FUTURE TRANSIT CORRIDORS.

UM, THE, UH, WEST 24TH STREET IS A LEVEL IS SAY A MINORITY LAMAR IS THE CLOSEST CORE TRANSIT CORRIDOR TO THIS LOCATION.

THAT CONCLUDES STAFF'S PRESENTATION THAT I'M AVAILABLE FOR.

THANK YOU.

UH, SO I'M ONLY ABOUT JOE HERE WITH JENNER GROUP REPRESENTING THE APPLICANT, THE TEXAS INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION CONSORTIUM.

ON NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I'M GOING TO MOVE FAIRLY QUICKLY THROUGH THESE.

UM, I THINK YOU'RE ALL FAMILIAR WITH THE SITE, UM, BUT JUST TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT, UH, OVER OF AN OVERVIEW.

UM, SO WE'RE LOCATED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF 24TH STREET BETWEEN LAMAR AND GUADELOUPE, UT AND UT.

THE CROSS STREET IS, UH, LEON STREET.

UM, AND AS YOU NOTICED, THE 24TH STREET IS THE SOUTHERN BOUNDARY OF THE UNO OVERLAY DISTRICT.

UM, 21ST STREET IS A LEVEL THREE MOBILITY CORRIDOR IN THE SMP.

AND AS I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS CORRIDOR IS CURRENTLY BEING STUDIED TO INCLUDE, UM, SAFETY AND MOBILITY IMPROVEMENTS TO INCLUDE MULTIPLE MODES OF TRANSPORTATION, INCLUDING DRIVING, WALKING, BIKING, AND TRANSIT, UH, ONTO SLIDE THREE, PLEASE.

UM, HERE A LITTLE MORE CLOSELY, YOU CAN SEE HOW THE, HOW THE BUILDING IS CURRENTLY SITUATED ON THE SITE, AS WELL AS STRUCTURES NEARBY.

UM, IN PARTICULAR, YOU CAN SEE THOSE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES TO THE SOUTHWEST THAT DO TRIGGER COMPATIBILITY, WHICH WE WOULD BE COMPLIANT WITH.

UH, IF YOU MOVE ON TO SLIDE FOUR, PLEASE.

UM, I THINK THIS IS JUST A SORT OF A HELPFUL VIEW.

THIS IS A VIEW, UM, FROM NORTH LOOKING SOUTH ACROSS 24TH STREET, OUR SITE IS THE ONE ON THE FAR CORNER ON THE RIGHT SIDE.

UM, AND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DEVELOP IS SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT'S ON THE FAR LEFT CORNER, UH, WHICH IS A 60 FOOT MULTIFAMILY BUILDING X SIDE, UH, SIDE FIVE HERE, YOU CAN SEE THE ZONING MAP.

YOU CAN SEE THE BASE DISTRICTS AGAIN, I'M ON THE NORTH SIDE OF 24TH IS THE OVERLAY, WHICH, UM, WHICH, WHICH DOESN'T SHOW ON HIS OWN MAP.

BUT, UM, BUT I KNOW YOU ALL KNOW VERY WELL.

AND ON SLIDE SIX, UH, JUST TO MAKE IT CLEAR WHAT THE CURRENT CONDITIONAL OVERLAY IS THAT WE ARE REQUESTING TO REMOVE.

UM, THE HEIGHT LIMIT IS, IS A PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF THAT.

UM, THOSE PROHIBITED USES ARE NOT THINGS THAT WE'RE PLANNING ON USING ON THE SITE FOR PRESIDENTIAL, I THINK HAS ACTUALLY BEEN DEEMED, UH, AN UNENFORCEABLE REGULATION DUE TO FAIR HOUSING, UH, AND THEN, UM, CALLED THEIR LODGE AND COMMUNITY RECREATION, PRIVATE.

UM, I KNOW THERE ARE

[00:50:01]

SOME NEIGHBORS THAT HAVE, ARE THAT WILL REQUEST THAT THOSE BE PROHIBITED.

WE'RE FINE.

IF YOU DESIRE TO ADD THOSE TO A CONDITIONAL RELAY, UM, WE'RE FINE EITHER WAY.

WE'RE NOT PLANNING ON USING THOSE USES.

UM, IF YOU MOVE ON TO SLIDE SEVEN, YOU CAN SEE, AS MARK SAID, SORT OF THE MIX OF USES ALONG 24TH STREET, UM, WE ARE REQUESTING OUR FORM DESIGNATION BE CHANGED FROM OFFICE TO MIXED USE.

UM, IF YOU MOVE ON TO SLIDE EIGHT, UM, I'LL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR SITE AND THE PROPOSAL.

UM, SO THE, THE FACE ABOUT JUST UNDER, UM, 0.7 ACRES, UM, IT IS A LEGALLY NONCONFORMING OFFICE BUILDING TODAY.

IT WAS BUILT IN 1962, AND IT IS A NEED OF, OF PRETTY SIGNIFICANT REPAIR, UM, TAKE, UM, IS PROPOSING TO INCLUDE THE MIX OF THEIR OWN OFFICE REMAINING ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE REDEVELOPED BUILDING.

AND THEN ALSO HAVE A VISION OF INCLUDING, UH, MULTI-FAMILY ABOVE THAT THEY WOULD MARK IT TO THEIR OWN, TO THE STUDENTS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT THEY WORK WITH.

I THINK ROBIN LERNER, THE PRESIDENT AND CEO CEO, WE'LL BE TALKING A LITTLE BIT TO YOU ABOUT THAT, UM, AS ONE OF THE SPEAKERS.

UM, BUT I THINK ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECES OF THIS, UH, REQUEST IS TO KNOW THAT THIS BUILDING IS LEGALLY NOT COME FORTH, EXCUSE ME, CONFIRMING, WHICH MEANS THEY COULD NOT GO BACK THE SQUARE FOOTAGE THAT THEY HAVE TODAY.

AND IT'S ALSO IN SIGNIFICANT NEED OF REPAIR.

UM, AND, AND WHICH IS WHAT IS SORT OF DRIVING THIS REQUEST AT THIS POINT, AS THEY KNOW, THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE SOME CHANGES SOON, IF YOU MOVE ON TO SLIDE NINE, UM, THIS IS JUST THE SUMMARY SIDE WE ARE REQUESTING, UM, TO GO FROM GOC O N P TO G R M U V N P.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF OUR REQUEST.

UM, AND AGAIN, THE FORM GOING FROM OFFICE TO MIXED USE, UM, SLIDE 10 SHOWS, JUST, UM, SORT OF A COMPARISON OF WHAT THE CURRENT BUILDING LOOKS LIKE, UM, WHAT THE CURRENT, UH, ZONING ALLOWS, WHAT THE REQUEST IS ZONING ALLOWS, AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THERE'S SOME LITTLE STARS THERE TO SHOW, UM, WHICH ENTITLEMENTS WOULD BE REQUESTED, WHICH ARE AFFECTED BY THE REQUESTED V UH, DMU OVERLAY.

UM, FINALLY ON SLIDE 11, UM, YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH, UM, ALL OF THE NEIGHBORS IN THE AREA, AND WE'RE VERY HAPPY TO HAVE, UM, THE SUPPORT OF EVERYONE.

WE HAVE THE SUPPORTIVE, UM, THE WEST UNIVERSITY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION.

WE HAVE THE SUPPORTIVE KIM PACK.

UM, WE HAVE THE SUPPORT OF UAP, WHICH I LEARNED AFTER CREATING THIS SLIDE.

AND THEN IF YOU MOVE ON TO SLIDE 12, YOU'LL SEE.

AND WE'VE ALSO BEEN WORKING WITH THE CASWELL NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, UM, AND THEY HAVE MADE SOME SPECIFIC REQUESTS.

UM, AGAIN, WE ARE AMENABLE TO THESE REQUESTS IF YOU'D LIKE, UH, AND I THINK THAT, UM, A REPRESENTATIVE OF THAT ORGANIZATION WILL, UM, AND SO TO SUMMARIZE ON 13, UM, WE DO HOPE TO HAVE YOUR, YOUR SUPPORT, YOUR RECOMMENDATION, UM, FOR OUR REQUESTS SPECIFICALLY FOR GR M U V AND P.

UM, THAT D IS A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF OUR REQUEST.

AND IT'S ALSO, UM, RIGHT.

UH, WHAT ENSURES THAT THIS SITE WOULD DEVELOP WITH AFFORDABLE HOUSING BY PARTICIPATING IN THE VIEW, WE WOULD BE REQUIRED TO, UM, TO MAKE 10% OF THE UNIT AFFORDABLE AT 60% MSI.

AND WE WOULD ALSO BE REQUIRED TO, UM, IMPROVE OUR STREETSCAPE, UM, WITH THAT I'LL CLOSE AND ASK IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS.

ALRIGHT.

UM, LET'S SEE.

WE HAVE, UM, I THINK, UH, ROBIN LEARNER, I THINK, UM, ARE YOU ON THE LINE HIT STAR SIX TO UNMUTE? HELLO? I'M HERE.

YES.

GO AHEAD.

YOU HAVE A SIX MINUTES, SIX MINUTES OF WONDERFUL.

WELL, I WILL KEEP IT SHORT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE TIME TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION THIS EVENING.

I AM ROBIN LEARNER.

I'VE BEEN THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE TEXAS INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION CONSORTIUM FOR THE PAST ALMOST THREE YEARS.

TAKE AS YOU CALL.

IT IS AN INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION.

NONPROFIT CREATED TO BE A NIMBLE PARTNER TO TEXAS UNIVERSITIES AND A CATALYST FOR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS.

AND INTERESTINGLY, WE ARE UNLIKE ANY ORGANIZATION IN AUSTIN.

AND EVEN IN TEXAS, SINCE OUR FOUNDING 35 YEARS AGO, WE HAVE ALWAYS EXISTED AT 1103 WEST 44TH STREET IN WEST CAMPUS.

THIS IS OUR HOME.

OUR BUILDING IS A FORMER DORM AND IT WAS RETROFITTED INTO CLASSROOMS AND OFFICES.

WE HOST STUDENTS AND INTERNATIONAL GROUPS ON A VARIETY OF EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL DIPLOMACY PROGRAM.

IN FACT, WE'VE TAUGHT SOME 30,000 STUDENTS IN OUR BUILDING AND HOSTED COUNTLESS INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL GROUPS, AND ALL TOLD OUR PARTICIPANTS HAVE HELD FROM AROUND A HUNDRED DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

WE BUILT OUR MODEL AROUND PROXIMITY'S A UT AND THE VIBRANT CAMPUS CULTURE THAT EXISTS THERE.

IT IS A MAJOR ATTRACTION FOR OUR PARTICIPANTS.

AND IN ADDITION

[00:55:01]

TO OUR STUDENTS AND EXCHANGE VISITORS, OUR NONPROFIT TENANTS, GLOBAL AUSTIN, AND THE WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL OF AUSTIN USE OUR BUILDING FREQUENTLY TO HOST INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE VISITORS, BUSINESS PEOPLE, AND DIGNITARIES FOR TIME, AS WELL AS OUR PARTNERS SAYING IN PROXIMITY TO UT IS VITAL.

WE HOST NUMEROUS PROGRAMS ON CAMPUS AND INVOLVE UT FACULTY AND STAFF IN OUR PROJECTS.

AND OUR STUDENTS USE UT FACILITIES WITHOUT THAT PROXIMITY TYPE COULD VERY WELL LOSE THE PROGRAMS WE HAVE AND WOULD MOST DEFINITELY BECOME A WEAK COMPETITOR IN A CROWDED INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION AND DIPLOMACY SPACE, THUS ATTRACTING FEWER OF THESE TYPES OF PROGRAMS TO AUSTIN.

ESSENTIALLY, LOCATION IS ALSO VITAL AS TRANSPORTATION IS A CONSIDERATION FOR PROGRAMMING IN AUSTIN.

WE CURRENTLY, AS YOU KNOW, ARE IN WALKING DISTANCE TO BUSES AND A NUMBER OF CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS THAT MAKE AUSTIN UNIQUE.

AND WE UTILIZE THOSE IN OUR PROGRAM WITH THE COST OF OUR PROPERTY.

IN THIS AREA, WE SEE ZERO POSSIBILITY OF STAYING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

IF WE HAVE TO LEAVE 1103 WEST 24TH, UNFORTUNATELY, AS LEAH MENTIONED, AS I LOOK AT OUR BUILDING TODAY, I SEE A PHYSICAL STRUCTURE IN DESPERATE DECLINE IN DISREPAIR.

IT IS A BUILDING TO CRUMBLING TO INVEST IN.

AND WHILE I SEE THE REAL POSSIBILITY AND POTENTIAL TO BECOME AN ASSET TO THE CITY, A HUB FOR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS AND CONVENINGS, OUR BUILDING TURNS PEOPLE AWAY RATHER THAN INVITING THEM IN.

AND WE ARE HESITANT TO INVITE TOO MANY PEOPLE IN BECAUSE OF THE STATE OF THE BUILDING.

THIS LEAVES ME FEELING VERY ALONE WITH NO OPTIONS AND THE FUTURE OF TECH WRAPPED UP IN THE DIRECTION WE GO WITH OUR BUILDING.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, WITH PROPERTY IMPOSSIBLE TO AFFORD ANYWHERE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, OUR ONLY OPTION IS TO REDEVELOP OUR BUILDINGS SO THAT WE CAN STAY.

SO WITH THIS LOADING REQUEST, WE HOPE TO REALIZE OUR VISION, TO HAVE A FLEXIBLE SPACE THAT WE CAN AFFORD AND WHERE WE CAN KEEP INTERNATIONALIZATION STRONG AND WEST CAMPUS AND KEEP AUSTIN AN ATTRACTIVE PLACE FOR THESE KINDS OF PROGRAMS. NOW, HOUSING IS ONE OF THE GREATEST CHALLENGES WE HAVE ON HOSTING INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS, INCREDIBLY COSTLY AND HARD TO FIND A SPACE THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR OUR DIFFERENT KINDS OF PROGRAMS. IF WE HAVE SPACE THAT ACCOMMODATES HOUSING ABOVE OUR OFFICE SPACE, WE DO HOPE TO HOST TO HOUSE OUR INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS ON SITE WITHOUT NEW ZONING TYPE WILL VERY LIKELY ACTUALLY WILL.

WE'LL DEFINITELY BE FORCED TO SELL AND MOVE OUT.

I CANNOT AFFORD TO REPAIR A BUILDING, UM, AND B ARE LOOKING AT REPAIRS IMMEDIATELY, AND THE CURRENT LIMITATIONS PREVENT DEVELOPMENT AS IS THAT WE'D LIKE TO REMOVE THE EYESORE ON THAT CORNER AND PROVIDE SOMETHING UNIQUE AND VALUABLE TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND OUR CITY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

AND, UM, I HAVE ONE SPEAKER, UH, TRESSIE DAMRON WHO DOESN'T WISH TO SPEAK UNLESS WE HAVE QUESTIONS.

UH, MIKE MCKONE, UH, YOU'RE THE LAST ONE ON THE LIST? ARE YOU HERE WITH US? CAN HIT STAR SIX.

HI.

YES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? OKAY, MIKE, YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES.

I MIGHT MCALLEN VICE-PRESIDENT UNIVERSITY AREA PARTNERS WERE EXCITED TO JOIN OUR NEIGHBORS, UH, AND SUPPORTED THIS.

AND, UH, MY WIFE WAS A TEACHER.

THAT'S A PROGRAM TEACHES STUDENTS, UH, UH, ENGLISH LANGUAGE SKILLS, UH, SOME 35 YEARS AGO OR FOUR MORE.

IT WAS A THAT'S YOUR HOUSE.

AND SO I'M VERY FAMILIAR WITH IT AND VERY FAMILIAR WITH THEIR PROGRAMS. UM, I COULD SAY, I THINK THE STAFF OF THE PRESENTATIONS YOU'VE HAD SO FAR ARE VERY ACCURATE.

UH, LEAH HAS MENTIONED THAT, UH, VMU, UH, AFFORDABILITY AND SHE MENTIONED THE 60% AFFORDABILITY.

RIGHT.

AND THAT'S WHAT UAP VOTED TO SUPPORT AT OUR BOARD MEETING TODAY.

SO SUPPORT WITH A 60% DMU, UH, COMPONENT FOR THE RESIDENTIAL SECTION.

AND I'LL TURN IT BACK TO YOU.

THANK YOU.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

UM, DO YOU WISH TO CLOSE, UH, I THINK I'M AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS.

I DON'T THINK I HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UM, DO WE HAVE QUESTIONNAIRES ON THE QUESTION? UM, I'LL START OFF A QUESTION, I GUESS I'D FIRST LIKE TO HEAR FROM, UM, UH, MR. GRAHAM, AND THEN MAYBE MS. BOGGIO AS WELL.

UH, ABOUT THE, THE, UM, THIS HAS BEEN A TOPIC THAT WE'VE DELVED INTO A COUPLE OF TIMES HERE ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

UH, AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE, UM, REQUIREMENT THAT THE V UH, OR THE IT'S ALMOST A, WELL AT THE TIME, I GUESS IT WAS A REQUIREMENT DURING THE OPTIN FORMULA UPZONING, UH, OR TO APPLY THE V WOULD ONLY BE APPLIED UPON, UH, CORE TRANSIT CORRIDORS, FUTURE TRANSIT

[01:00:01]

CORRIDORS, UM, AND, UH, THAT, THAT WAS WHAT WAS USED FOR THE FORMULA ZONING, BUT THAT CODE WAS KIND OF SILENT ON, UH, AND IS SILENT.

THERE WAS NO PROHIBITION WITHIN THE CODE ON, UH, ON OFFERING THE VISA ZONING THAT IS NOT ADJACENT TO THOSE CORRIDORS.

AND OF COURSE THOSE, THOSE QUARTERS HAVE CHANGED.

UM, EVEN, UH, THEY DON'T EVEN REFLECT THE TRANSIT MAP THAT, UM, THAT THE CITY COUNCIL HAS JUST ADOPTED.

UM, SO, UH, YOU KNOW, I KNOW THIS IS A BIT OF A CONFUSING ISSUE, GO FIGURE WITH OUR OLD CODE AND, AND IT NEEDS TO, UH, IT COULD USE SOME CLEARING UP.

UM, BUT I KNOW THE STAFF HAS, AS RECENTLY AS OUR LAST MEETING, UH, SUPPORTED A V DESIGNATION ON A BUILDING THAT WAS NOT, UH, RIGHT ON A CORRIDOR WHEN THEY MADE THAT, UH, PART OF THE CODE.

BUT, YOU KNOW, BY, BY ALL KIND OF COMMON SENSE IS ON A CORRIDOR NOW.

UM, SO, UH, CAN YOU SPEAK TO THE STAFF DISCUSSION ON, ON THAT V AND, AND WHY MAYBE SOME OTHER PROPERTIES THAT ARE NOT ON THOSE CORRIDORS HAVE QUALIFIED FOR IT, UH, AND GOTTEN THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION FOR IT, BUT THIS ONE DID NOT.

I'M TRICIA TENNEY IN COMMISSION MARTIN FOR THE STAFF.

I HAVE A RELATIVELY SHORT HISTORY HERE AT AUSTIN.

SO I'M GOING WITH, UH, MY UNDERSTANDING IS HISTORICALLY, UM, AS YOU STATED, THESE OFFERED ON CORE TRANSIT CORRIDORS AND FUTURE TRANSIT QUARTERS.

UM, I HAD A CASE ON, UH, OLD KENDIG LANE THAT WAS ACTUALLY CONNECTED TO A PROPERTY ON LAMAR.

UM, BUT THAT ALREADY HAD THE VISA ZONING.

WE RECOMMENDED THE V BE EXTENDED ONTO THAT PROPERTY.

THAT MAY HAVE BEEN THE ONE YOU RECALL.

UM, SO I SEE THAT AS CONSISTENT WITH THE RECOMMENDATION, BUT I'M WITH YOU, I'D LIKE TO SEE THE NEW CODE ADDRESS THIS, SO THAT IT'S MORE CLEAR WHERE THE V CAN BE OFFERED.

RIGHT.

UM, AND, UH, WAS BOGGIO, CAN YOU SPEAK TO THE, UM, WHAT KIND OF TRANSIT ACCESS THIS SITE HAS? I MEAN, UH, THE CORE CORRIDORS ARE PRETTY OLD ARE OF, UH, THE CITY PLANNING THEY'RE, THEY'RE ARGUABLY, YOU KNOW, SOMEWHAT IRRELEVANT.

UM, DOES, DOES THE SITE THAT YOU'RE AT, DOES, DOES IT HAVE GOOD TRANSIT NOW? UM, HOW DOES, YOU KNOW, HOW, HOW CLOSE IS IT TO TRANSIT THAT, YOU KNOW, FOR EXAMPLE, WE WERE LOOKING AT WITH PROJECT CONNECT, ET CETERA, CAN YOU TELL US, YOU KNOW, IF, IF WE CAN THINK OF THIS LOCATION AS BEING CLOSE TO A TRANSIT CORRIDOR OR NOT? ABSOLUTELY.

UM, SO, SO THE TRANSIT ACCESS IN THIS AREA IN GENERAL IS VERY GOOD.

THERE IS NOT TRANSIT ACCESS ON 24TH STREET ITSELF TODAY.

HOWEVER, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, THERE IS A MOBILITY STUDY IN THE WORKS TO LOOK AT, UM, AT OTHER MODES OF, OF, UH, TRANSPORTATION BEING ADDED TO 20 WEST 24TH STREET.

UM, WHAT I WOULD SAY ABOUT THE V IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE THAT MAKES THIS AN APPROPRIATE LOCATION FOR IT IS FIRST OF ALL, IT IS JUST SOUTH OF THE UNIVERSITY NEIGHBORHOOD OVERLAY, AS I DISCUSSED, UM, THE VMU OVERLAY ALLOWS, UM, YOU KNOW, ALLOWS SOME INCREASE IN DENSITY, UH, IN EXCHANGE FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UM, WHICH I KNOW WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO ENSURE THAT WE'RE GETTING, AND THE VMU PROGRAM IS ONE OF THE BEST PROGRAMS
