UH, STAFF BRIEFINGS, UH, STAFF UPDATES FROM PARKS AND RECREATION.

AWESOME.

PUBLIC COUNCIL AND WATERSHED PROTECTION, 2012 AND 2018 BOND PROGRAMS. UM, BUT WE JUST WANT TO START IN THAT PARTICULAR ORDER IN OUR, SO WE HAVE STEVEN LYNETTE ON THE LINE CAPITAL, FEBRUARY.

LET'S SEE.

HOW CAN PLEASE PULL UP THE PRESENTATION YESTERDAY? SAME FORMAT AS PREVIOUS.

WE WAIT FOR QUESTIONS AT THE END OF EACH SEGMENT AS WE HAVE AN ABBREVIATE.

[00:05:27]

OKAY.

I THINK WE'RE READY WHENEVER YOU GUYS ARE.

YEAH.

IF YOU COULD GO AHEAD AND JUMP TO SLIDE FOUR.

YOU READY? THIS IS STEVEN LYNETTE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM MANAGER WITH THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT.

I'M HERE TO TALK TO YOU ALL ABOUT 2012 AND 2018 BOND PROPOSITIONS FOR PARKS AND RECREATION.

UM, THANKS FOR WELCOMING ME BACK.

IT'S BEEN ABOUT SIX MONTHS SINCE THAT PRESENTATION WE HAD ON PROPOSITION B FROM 2018, UM, SKID GO RIGHT INTO THE SLIDE SIX.

UM, SO THE 2018 BOND, UM, PROVIDED $149 MILLION THROUGH PROPOSITION C FOR PARKS AND RECREATION.

THAT WAS A VERY LARGE INCREASE OVER THE LAST TWO ON PROPOSITION IN 2012 AND 2006.

AND WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE, UM, ADDITIONAL FUNDING WE'VE RECEIVED IN PROPOSITION B WE'RE AT ALMOST THREE TIMES, AS FAR AS IF A PROGRAM THROUGH THE BONDS, UM, AS WE WORKED IN 2012 AND IN 2006, UM, LOOKING AT OUR FIVE-YEAR CIP PLAN OF ABOUT $230 MILLION NOW GEO BOND FUNDING IS APPROXIMATELY 70% OF THAT OVERALL, AS OF NOW.

UM, YES.

UM, OTHER MAJOR FUNDING SOURCES WE HAVE ARE PARKLAND DEDICATION, TIFS, HISTORIC PRESERVATION FUND, HOTEL, OCCUPANCY TAX, AND, UM, PARTNERSHIPS AND GRANTS.

UM, I'M SORRY, LET'S TRY THAT ON THE WRONG ONE.

SO IF YOU POP BACK TO THE LAST IN CAPITAL'S CONTRACT WITH THE BOATERS, THEY SET ASIDE, UM, THEY SET ASIDE FIVE SEPARATE CATEGORIES IN PROPOSITION C FOR PARKLAND ACQUISITION AND AQUATICS PARKLAND IMPROVEMENTS, BUILDING RENOVATIONS AND INFRASTRUCTURE, AND GIVE US KIND OF GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR HOW WE SHOULD ALLOCATE OUR FUNDING.

UM, OUR PRIORITIES WERE FOR ACCESS TO PARKS AND RECREATION FACILITIES AND MAKING STRATEGIC ACQUISITIONS TO BE INVESTING IN RENEWING AGING FACILITIES, THREE INVESTING HISTORICALLY UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES AND FOR ADVANCING THE HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT INDICATORS IN SD 23 FORWARD TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

THAT'S FUCKING COOL.

WE HAVE ABOUT 80% CLOSE TO 80% OF THE 2012 ON UNDER CONTRACT ARE SPENT AT THIS POINT.

I'M ON THE NEXT FILE.

I'LL GO A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL ON THE OTHER MAIN PROJECTS WE HAVE FROM 2012, BUT I WOULD POINT OUT THAT ALL HAVE CLOSE TO 95% OF ALL OF THIS UNDER CONTRACT BY THE END OF 2021.

AND THEN AS IT RELATES TO 2018, WE'RE A LITTLE BIT AHEAD OF OUR SPENDING PLAN THAT WE SAID, ACTUALLY.

SO AT THIS POINT WE HAVE JUST OVER 6% OF THE BOND PROGRAM COMMITTED AND A NUMBER OF LARGE CONTRACTS ON THE WAY THAT WILL BUMP UP THAT NUMBER QUITE A BIT OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, SWITCH TO NEXT SLIDE EIGHT, THE 2012 BOND DRAW DOWN HERE FOR OUR SPENDING SHOWS US SPENDING ALL OF OUR FUNDING BY 2025.

REALISTICALLY, THERE ARE ABOUT SIX PROJECTS WE HAVE ON HAND NOW REMAINING.

UM, THE FIRST IS ANALOG ALONG METRO PARKS, VISION PLAN AND IMPROVEMENTS.

UM, THIS IS GOING UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN THE NEXT MONTH.

UM, IT SHOULD BE DONE AROUND NEXT SUMMER.

UM, BUT SO PROVISION PLAN, UM, IS HITTING THE COUNCIL AGENDA TOMORROW FOR APPROVAL OF NEGOTIATION WITH THE SELECTED FIRM.

AND FROM THAT POINT I WOULD EXPECT US TO PICK ABOUT 18 MONTHS TO TWO YEARS TO FINISH THAT VISION PLAN IT'S ALREADY AT CENTER IS COMBINED WITH THE PROPOSITION BEAT PROP FROM, UM, 2018.

WE'RE NEGOTIATING NOW WITH OUR ARCHITECT OR ARCHITECTURAL FIRM AND EVALUATING THE CONSTRUCTION MANAGER AT RISK PROPOSALS.

UM, ZOCOR MAINTENANCE BARN RECEIVED PLANNING

[00:10:02]

COMMISSION APPROVAL ABOUT A MONTH AGO, AND WE'LL ENTER THE BID PHASE THIS FALL, IDEALLY GET INTO CONSTRUCTION.

NEXT SPRING DEPARTMENTS SPRINGS BATH HOUSE IS ALSO AIMING TO START BID SOMETIME AROUND SPRING OR EARLY SUMMER NEXT YEAR.

AND PROBABLY THE LAST OF THESE TO FINISH UP WILL BE PALM PARK, WHICH IS IN COLLABORATION WITH THE BALLER CREEK, UM, IN THE WALLER CREEK DISTRICT IN COLLABORATION WITH THE WALLET, WHETHER WE TREAT THE CONSERVANCY AND, UM, THE WATERSHED PROTECTION DEPARTMENT AND PROPOSITION C FOR 2018, WE'RE EXPECTING TO SPEND ALMOST ALL OF THIS MONEY BY 2025, WHICH IS WITHIN ME, UM, EIGHT YEAR TARGET CAPITAL SET FOR THIS BOND PROPOSITION.

UM, I WOULD NOTE THAT 45 MILLION OF THE PROPOSITION IS FOR PARKLAND ACQUISITIONS AND THAT'S EXCLUDED FROM THAT SPENDING DRAW OUT CURVE.

SO BLOCK THAT OUT, THE LITTLE I'LL GET INTO A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL ON THE ACQUISITION PROJECTS AND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO HERE IN ALL LIKELIHOOD, IT'S LOOKING LIKE WE'LL BE SPENDING ALMOST ALL OF THAT 45 MILLION, UM, BRILL.

WELL BEFORE TO OPERATIONALIZE COUNCIL'S GUIDANCE IN, UM, INTO KIND OF AN ACTUAL TOOL WE COULD USE FOR PRIORITIZING PROJECTS WITHIN EACH OF THOSE PROGRAMS. UM, PARK'S DEVELOPED A MATRIX THAT'S CONSIDERING THE NEED FOR REINVESTMENT INDICATORS AND EQUITY, UM, WHICH IS FOR DEFINING AS THE DEMOGRAPHICS WITHIN THE PARKER FACILITY SERVICE AREA.

UM, PRIMARY THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT WITH THE NEED FOR REINVESTMENT OUTSIDE OF THIS IS THE NEXT SLIDE AGAIN.

AND, UM, WE'LL GET THE CONDITION OF ASSETS.

UM, SO WE'VE PART HAS GONE THROUGH AND DONE ASSET ASSESSMENTS OF MAJOR INFRASTRUCTURE, LIKE, UM, POOLS WAS ENEMY AQUATICS ASSESSMENT AND THROUGH THE AQUATICS, UM, PLANNED PROCESS, WHICH WAS APPROVED BY COUNCIL IN 2018, UM, FOR PARKLAND ASSETS, UM, YES, THE MANAGEMENT TEAM AND CONSULTANTS THAT WORK WITH US ON THE LONG RANGE PLAN, UM, COMPLETED A QUESTIONNAIRE OF AT THIS POINT, ALMOST ALL OF THE PARKS IN OUR SYSTEM, UM, AND EVALUATE A CONDITION OF INDIVIDUAL ASSETS THAT WE'RE ROLLING OUT TO AN OVERALL SCORE CARD FOR THAT PARK.

UM, WE'RE LOOKING AT THE CRITICALITY OF ASSETS WITHIN THE SYSTEM.

SO BACK UP, LIKE IF YOU HAD A PLAYSCAPE IN A SMALLER PARK THAT, UM, THEY FELT THAT WOULD BE LOWER PRIORITY THAN IN A METRO PARK, THINGS LIKE THAT TO BALANCE OUT, UM, PRIORITIES.

AND THEN WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT SAFETY LEGAL OR REGULATORY MANDATES COST DATING OR REVENUE GENERATING PROJECTS, OR PARTICULARLY INNOVATIVE OR SUSTAINABLE ONES.

UM, FOR THE SD 23 INDICATORS, WE ARE CONSIDERING HOW MUCH HE PROJECTS WILL IMPROVE AMENITIES, ITS ABILITY TO LEVERAGE FUNDING FROM THIRD PARTIES OR OTHER CITY FUNDING SOURCES, HOW MUCH IT WILL IMPROVE ACCESSIBILITY TO PARKS AND, UM, FACILITIES WITHIN THE SYSTEM AND WHETHER IT IMPROVES GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE.

AND LASTLY, UM, THE EQUITY COMPONENT, WE'RE LOOKING AT SERVICE AREAS WITH PARKS.

SO FOR METRO PARKS, THAT'S A CITYWIDE 17.

YES, YES.

IT SHOULD BE 10 RIGHT NOW, STEVEN, I THINK WE MIGHT HAVE DIFFERENT SLIDE NUMBERS THAN YOU DO.

SO MAYBE IF YOU COULD REFERENCE THE TITLE OF THE SLIDE RATHER THAN THE PAGE NUMBER, THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL.

MY APOLOGIES FOR THAT.

OKAY.

I'M ON, I'M ON THE PRIORITIZATION MATRIX FOR THIS.

YEAH.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANKS.

THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW.

UM, SO FOR THE EQUITY COMPONENT, WHICH IS ONE THIRD OF THIS OVERALL SCORE, WE'RE LOOKING AT DEMOGRAPHICS WITHIN A PARK SERVICE AREA.

SO FOR THE MAJOR FACILITIES AND METRO PARKS, THAT'S GOING TO BE CITYWIDE, UM, FOR DISTRICT PARKS.

IT'S A TWO MILE SURFACE AREA FOR NEIGHBORHOOD PARKS, ALUMNI AND DOWN FROM THERE FOR POCKET PARKS.

SO WITHIN THAT SERVICE AREA, WE'RE COMPARING THE POPULATION DENSITY TO AUSTIN MEDIANS, THE HOUSEHOLD INCOME TOSSED THE MEDIANS, THAT PROPORTION OF PEOPLE OF COLOR IN THAT AREA VERSUS AUSTIN MEDIANS AND THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN SERVED.

SO ALL THOSE FACTORS COMBINED ONE-THIRD VALUED, EACH

[00:15:01]

COMES UP WITH OUR OVERALL PRIORITIZATION SCORING OR PROJECTS WITHIN EACH ONE OF THE CATEGORIES GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE ABOUT CONTRACTING.

SO, AS I SAID BEFORE, THE SPAWN PROGRAM, WHEN CONSIDERING BOTH PROPOSITION B AND PROPOSITION C IS ALMOST THREE TIMES AS LARGE AS 24 MONTHS.

UM, SO WE HAD TO, WE KNEW WE HAD TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO BE ABLE TO DELIVER THIS MUCH WITHIN THE EIGHT YEAR TIMEFRAME CAPITAL SET US UP WITH CAUSE YOU MOVE FORWARD TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

OH, THERE IS A DELAY IF YOU'RE WATCHING IT ON THE STREAM.

OKAY.

SO WE KNEW WE WERE GOING TO HAVE TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITHOUT AUGMENTING OUR STAFF INTERNALLY TO BE ABLE TO GET ALL THIS WORK DELIVERED THE DATE, YOUR TIME PLAN.

UM, THE FIRST OF THESE, WHICH I THINK IS UNIQUE TO PRETTY MUCH ANY OF THE OTHER DEPARTMENTS IN AUSTIN, UM, IT WAS GOING OUT AND FINDING THIRD PARTY PROJECT MANAGERS FOR SOME OF THE MAJOR PROJECTS.

UM, THE IDEA BEHIND THIS WAS WE ARE NOT GOING TO ADD MORE PROJECT MANAGERS TO OUR STAFF, UM, PERMANENTLY.

SO WE DECIDED TO GO OUT AND TRY TO FIND A PM, UM, FOR THE COLONY PARK AND GIVEN SCHOOL PROJECTS AND THE DARTY ART CENTER, BOTH OF THOSE PM FIRMS CAME UNDER CONTRACT IN JUNE THIS YEAR.

UM, AND W WE'RE PRETTY OPTIMISTIC ABOUT HOW THAT'S GONNA WORK, ENABLE US TO DO MORE WORK AND FOCUS ON SOME OF THE OTHER PROJECTS IN THE PROGRAM WITHOUT SPENDING AS MUCH PM EFFORT ON THIS, ON THESE ONES.

UM, NEXT WE KNEW THAT WE HAD A NUMBER OF HER CASE AND LISTS, WHICH ARE, UM, MASTER AGREEMENTS THAT ARE AGREED UPON BEFOREHAND FOR A SERIES OF DESIGN FIRMS, UM, THAT WE COULD PAUL, UM, IN LESS TIME THAN IT WOULD TAKE TO DO A REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS OR OTHER SOLICITATION PROCESS FOR EVERYONE, UM, FOR PARTS OF RECREATION, THE BIGGEST ONE OF THESE IS LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE AND THE ARCHITECTURE ONE IS ALSO A BIG ONE THAT WE PULL OFF OF, UM, BOTH OF THESE SORT OF RENEWED LAST SUMMER, UM, IN TERMS OF PROJECT DELIVERY.

UH, WE WORK OFF OF A COUPLE OF CO-OPS.

UM, A LOT OF THE TIMES THE BIBLE CO-OP AGREEMENTS FOR PARKING ENTITIES AND AQUATICS FOR MANY OF THE SMALLER PROJECTS, IT'S A MUCH BETTER VALUE AND WE CAN GET THINGS UNDER CONTRACT, MUCH FASTER.

PERCUSSING OFF THOSE COOPERATIVES, WHICH SPEND IT WITH AUTHORITIES MUCH BEYOND THE LAST, UM, THREE YEAR CYCLE WE HAVE FOR BOTH.

SO WE'RE ABLE TO PULL IN THOSE.

UM, LASTLY WE STARTED LOOKING INTO DELIVERY, INDEFINITE QUANTITY CONTRACTS.

THAT'S PART OF NEVER BEEN USED BEFORE BY PUBLIC WORKS AND WATERSHED, AND MANY OTHER DEPARTMENTS HAVE.

SO LET'S GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, 10 TO 12, UM, IN TERMS OF PARKLAND ACQUISITION, WHICH RECEIVED 45 MILLION IN THE BOND PROGRAM, WE ARE PAIRING THAT A LOT WITH PARKLAND DEVELOPMENT FEES, WHICH ARE DEVELOPMENT FEES THAT HAVE A GEOGRAPHIC RESTRICTIONS TIED TO THEM.

WE'RE BRINGING IN ABOUT 13 TO 14 MILLION OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS FROM THAT FEE.

SO IT'S A VERY LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY, BUT IT'S SCATTERED ALL OVER THE CITY IN POINTS.

SO IT DOESN'T REALLY WORK AS WELL WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO PAIR IT WITH ANOTHER FUNDING SOURCE TO MAKE ACQUISITIONS IN A STRATEGIC WAY.

UM, SO PAIRING THAT PLD MONEY WITH THE BOND MONEY REALLY UNLOCKS OUR ACQUISITION PROGRAM TO START MAKING STRATEGIC ACQUISITIONS, UM, TO CLOSE GAPS ALONG GREEN BELTS, AND TO START SERVING PARK DEFICIENT AREAS MORE.

WE'RE ALSO LOOKING BACK AT THE PARK'S LONG RANGE PLAN FOR RECOMMENDATIONS AND CONSIDERING ALL THOSE, UM, DEMOGRAPHIC EQUITY FACTORS THAT I SAID, UM, THAT ARE SIMILAR TO THE, UM, DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.

AND CURRENTLY WE HAVE ALMOST, OR JUST ABOUT $46 MILLION, UM, ACTIVELY THAT WE'RE ACTIVELY NEGOTIATING FOR PARKLAND ACQUISITIONS.

UM, YOU CAN SEE IN THE TABLE BELOW AND MUCH OF THIS IS BETWEEN MOPAC AND , THAT'S NOT EXACTLY CENTRAL AUSTIN IT'S IF YOU COULD SEE ON THE HEAT MAP TO THE RIGHT, THERE'S A QUITE A BIT CONCENTRATED SOUTH BELOW TWO 90 AND NORTH OF ONE 83.

UM, SO HE HAS A PRETTY WIDE GEOGRAPHIC DISPERSION OF WHERE WE'RE SPENDING THIS MONEY AND IT'S ALL TIED BACK TO POSING CAFFEINE GREEN BELTS.

UM, SO WE'RE ABLE TO MAKE THOSE LINEAR PARKS SYSTEMS THAT, UM, CAME OUT OF SUCH LIKE A CLEAR DESIRE FROM THE COMMUNITY IN THE LONG RANGE PLAN AND MEET THOSE HALF MILE AND QUARTER MILE, UH, PARKLAND SERVICE LEVEL OF SERVICE INDICATORS.

THE NEXT SLIDE ON 2018 HIGHLIGHTS.

[00:20:02]

SO WITHIN THE AQUATICS PROGRAM, WHICH RECEIVED $40 MILLION, UM, WE'RE OFF AND RUNNING ON THE FIRST TWO POOLS, THE FIRST ONE IN COLONY PARK, IT'S GOING TO BE A BRAND NEW POOL, UM, FATS, THE AQUATICS, THE AQUATIC PLANTS CITED THE SAME AS THE ONE IN MOST NEED OF THE NEW POOL TO SARAH, THE ENTIRE PARK SYSTEM.

AND THEN THE GIVENS POOL IS GOING TO BE RENOVATED AS WELL.

UM, THAT WAS THE NUMBER ONE CRITICAL POOL IDENTIFIED IN THAT PLAN.

MOST OF THESE POOLS FOR UNDER THE SAME PM CONTRACT ARE GOING TO BE UNDER THE SAME DESIGN CONTRACT SHOULD BE AT THE COUNCIL NEXT WEEK, AND THERE'LL BE UNDER THE SAME CONSTRUCTION MANAGER AT RISK CONTRACT.

SO WE THOUGHT PAIRING THOSE TWO TO GET US MOVING MUCH MORE QUICKLY THAN IF WE DON'T OWN INDIVIDUAL RSQS AND INDIVIDUAL, UM, AND GOING FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS FOR BOTH THOSE TWO, UM, IN THE NEXT WAVE OF PAUSE FOR LOOKING AT THE NEXT TWO CRITICAL POOLS IN THAT LIST, UM, WHICH ARE MONTOPOLIS AND BEVERLY SHEFFIELD NORTHWEST.

AND WE'RE PLANNING ON DOING A SIMILAR THING WITH CARRYING THESE TOGETHER WITHIN ONE DESIGN CONTRACT AND ONE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT TO, UM, USE OUR PM RESOURCES FOR EFFICIENTLY.

UM, THE LAST ONE I PICKED, I LIKE THERE IS THE PARK IS ARGOS THE HOUSE.

THIS IS AN OLD BUILDING THAT WAS CONSTRUCTED IN 1941, INITIALLY SURFACED THE REC CENTER AND THE POOL'S BATH BATHHOUSE.

UM, IT'S BEEN OUT OF SERVICE FOR AWHILE AND IT'S AN IMPORTANT TO STORE ACROSS THAT.

AND WHEN THE LOT NEXT COMMUNITY THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO BRING BACK ONLINE.

SO THIS ONE IS ALSO MOVING FORWARD NOW WITHIN THE BUILDING RENOVATIONS PROGRAM, WHICH RECEIVED 21 AND A HALF MILLION.

UM, WE HAVE A FEW MAJOR PROJECTS MOVING FORWARD NOW FOR TENNIS CENTER, UM, OVER BY PATTERSON PARK AIRPORT.

AND, UM, WILSHIRE IS ABOUT 60% DESIGN.

WE'RE AIMING TO START CONSTRUCTION NEXT SUMMER.

THE NEXT TWO PROJECTS KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

SEE HOME TECH OR PARTNER PROJECTS WITH, UM, BRINGING IN OUTSIDE FUNDING AND LEVERAGING OUR RESOURCES FURTHER.

WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT A NUMBER OF SMALLER SCALE ADA, UM, AND TAZ COMPLIANCE PROJECTS TO HELP.

UM, PARDON ME.

UH, WE TOOK THE GOALS.

WE SET AN ADA TRANSITION PLAN FOR THE DEPARTMENT.

THE NEXT ONE, PLEASE.

UM, THE INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM, A 17 AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS.

THIS PROGRAM IS LOOKING AT MAKING CRITICAL REPLACEMENTS AND IMPROVEMENTS TO ATHLETICS, CEMETERIES, GOLF, PARKING LOTS, AND BURGLARIES, PLAYGROUNDS, AND TRAILS.

UM, REALLY THESE ARE ALL CITYWIDE, SMALLER INVESTMENTS.

UM, TYPICALLY THAT, UM, ARE VERY EXPENSIVE.

I THINK PLACE GATES, YOU GET A LOT OF, UM, ENGAGEMENT ABOUT AND ARE REALLY IMPORTANT ASSETS TO US.

I THINK BETWEEN THIS BOND PROGRAM AND RESOURCES FOR LEVERAGING FROM THE OUTSIDE, WE'LL BE ABLE TO TOUCH SOMETHING ON A 25 TO 30 PLAYGROUNDS IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS.

UM, AND THAT WILL ADDRESS ALMOST ALL OR ALL OF THE NONCOMPLIANT SAFETY SURFACES.

WE HAD AN IT SYSTEM AND REPLACED SOME OF THE OLDEST AND IN WORST CONDITION IN THE SYSTEM.

LASTLY, UM, PARKLAND IMPROVEMENTS, $25 MILLION, THE TWO MAJOR METRO PARK PROJECTS WE'RE FOCUSING ON ARE THE WALL THREE LONG AND JOHN TREVINO JR.

PARKS NORTHEAST, AND ON NINE 69.

UM, BOTH OF THESE HAVE VISION PLANS THAT HAVE BEEN APPROVED BY PARKS BOARD AND OUR WAITING COUNCIL APPROVAL.

AND ONCE WE GET COUNCIL APPROVAL OR PERMISSION TO MOVE ON TO THE NEXT STEPS ON THESE PROJECTS, WE EXPECT THEM PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THE METRO PARK MONEY IN 2018, ALL $10 MILLION TO GO TO THESE TWO SITES, UM, DEVELOPMENT, UM, DISTRICT PARKS, BUT WITH THE COLONY PARK YOU GET INTO AS OUR MAJOR TO INVESTMENTS AND THEN SMALLER SCALE PARKS, WE'LL BE WORKING IN A NUMBER OF PARKS CITYWIDE CURRENTLY WE'RE IN ABOUT SEVEN WITH BOND FUNDING, BUT THAT NUMBER IS GOING TO INCREASE, UM, PROBABLY MAYBE EVEN DOUBLE, UM, WHEN WE'RE ABLE TO PAIR IT WITH OTHER FUNDING SOURCES.

OKAY.

I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THREE PROJECTS THAT RECENTLY FINISHED.

UM, THESE WERE PRIMARILY 2012 ON PROJECTS WITH ONE STEM AND TACOS RECREATION COMMUNITY CENTER, UM, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AUSTIN PUBLIC HEALTH.

AND THEY'LL BE COVERING THIS AS WELL IN THEIR PRESENTATION, BUT IT'S, UM, ALMOST ALMOST DONE AND IT LOOKS AMAZING.

UM, IT'S GOING TO BE AN AMAZING ASSET FOR BOTH PARKS AND PUBLIC HEALTH IN THE ENTIRE CITY, BUT THERE'S 33,000 SQUARE FOOT FACILITY.

THAT'S REPLACING THE OLDMAN TOPLESS

[00:25:01]

REC CENTER AND THEN OPEN PUBLIC HEALTH FACILITY.

UM, BUT THAT'S FOR THE GEORGE ROSS DOVE SPRINGS RECREATION CENTER EXPANSION ALSO FINISHED THIS FALL, UM, AND ADDED ABOUT 3000 NEW SQUARE FEET RENOVATED ABOUT 5,000 AND INCLUDED SITE WORK, UM, IN THAT AREA AS WELL.

UM, IT WAS DONE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE GRANT, AND THEN THAT'S THE COLONY PARK DISTRICT PARK.

UM, IT CAN MOVE FORWARD TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

I'VE INCLUDED A MAP FOR THAT ENTIRE PARK AND WHAT OUR INVESTMENTS LOOK LIKE IN THAT AREA.

SO THIS WAS A VERY LARGE PROJECT CONSTRUCTED PARTIALLY INTERNALLY, PARTIALLY BY, UM, CONTRACTORS TO DEVELOP THE AREA ON THE SOUTH SIDE, THE AREA SOUTH OF, UM, TURNER ROBERTS RECREATION CENTER AND OVERTON ELEMENTARY IN THE PARK.

IT'S ABOUT A NINE ACRE DEVELOPMENT THAT JUST FINISHED UP IN THE SPRING.

UM, NOT MATH.

YOU COULD ALSO SEE LIKE WHERE THE NEW COLONY PARK POOL IS GOING TO GO IN BETWEEN THE MORELAND LANE AND THE 15 DEVELOPMENT.

UM, THAT'S REALLY GOING TO HELP COMPLETE THIS AREA, WHICH IS THAT HISTORICALLY UNDERSERVED AREA.

AND REALLY IT'S LIKE REALLY, I THINK WHAT PARKS AND RECREATION THE CITY AS A WHOLE WANTS TO BE DOING PAIRING WITH ASD PAIRING WITH EXISTING, UM, RECREATION CENTER FACILITIES AND CREATING AND WIDENING OUR SERVICING AND PROVIDING MORE SERVICE, UM, IS THAT HADN'T RECEIVED IT, UM, THAT EXCEPT THEY DESERVED.

SO THAT KIND OF CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION.

NOW, IF Y'ALL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE GO AHEAD AND ASK THEM.

THANK YOU.

THANKS FOR THE PRESENTATION.

UM, VERY INSIGHTFUL, VERY, UH, USEFUL INFORMATION.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE, UM, SOME KEY PROJECTS GETTING COMPLETED.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OUT OF THE GATE FROM ANYBODY ON THE COMMISSION, MR. SKIPTA? YEAH, MATE.

YOU'RE ON MUTE.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? YES.

THANK YOU.

SO MY QUESTION WAS THERE WAS ONE STATEMENT IN ONE OF THE SLIDES ABOUT CONNECTING TRAILS AND DIFFERENT CREEK CREEKS, ETC.

CAN YOU ELABORATE ON THAT? THAT'D BE GOOD.

KEEP WALKING ALL THE WAY BACK, WHICH WOULD MAKE IT MUCH MORE WALKABLE AS A CITY THAT I'D LIKE TO SEE.

I'M SORRY.

I HAD SOME DIFFICULTY HEARING THE END OF THAT.

OKAY.

YOUR SLIDES, YOU TALK QUOTE, CONNECTING TRAILS.

CAN YOU ELABORATE? YEAH, I THINK YOU'RE REFERRING TO THE, UH, PAGE 11.

IT'S GOT THE HEAT MAP RIGHT ON THE MAP THAT SHOWS THE, THE PARKS PARKLAND BEING ACQUIRED AT A TARGET AREAS.

YEAH.

UM, I FELT THE TROUBLE THAT I THINK I DID SPEAK TO THAT.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT ACQUISITIONS ALL OVER THE CITY.

UM, CONNECTING, WE'RE GETTING A LOT OF NOISE ON SOMEONE'S NIGHT.

YOU WERE BREAKING UP.

I COULDN'T QUITE UNDERSTAND.

OKAY.

UM, SO THERE ARE FEW, I MEAN, THERE ARE A FEW ACQUISITIONS THAT HAVE ALREADY GONE THROUGH OR ARE IN THE PROCESS OF GOING THROUGH COUNCIL.

UM, ABOUT AT THE END OF LAST MONTH, THERE WAS A CASE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH AN EMINENT DOMAIN, UM, ON UPPER BULL CREEK.

WE'RE ALSO MAKING ACQUISITIONS ALONG WILLIAMSON CREEK DOWN SOUTH.

UM, THERE'S SOME IN PROCESS ALONG NORTH AND WALNUT CREEK AS WELL.

SO REALLY LIKE WE'RE, WE'RE LOOKING AT AREAS ALL OVER THE CITY, BUT WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS FILL IN THAT GAP WITHIN THESE SYSTEMS THAT WE HAVEN'T ACQUIRED YET.

AREN'T ABLE TO ACQUIRE THROUGH EASTBOUND.

WE'RE ALSO WORKING WITH PUBLIC WORKS, URBAN TRAILS AND AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION ON THESE TWO TO ACTUALLY DEVELOP THE SITES.

ONCE WE ACQUIRE THEM, NOT ALL OF THEM ARE GOING TO BE URBAN TRAILS, BUT NORTHERN WALNUT CREEK CLEARLY IT'S ONE THAT WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR A WHILE.

UM, IN THE 2020, UH, PROPOSED BOND PACKAGE, THEY DISCUSSED CONNECTING SOUTHERN WALNUT CREEK AND NORTHERN WALNUT CREEK

[00:30:01]

AS WELL.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT REALLY ALL OVER.

UM, BUT THOSE ARE SOME OF THE HIGH PRIORITY AREAS AND THE WALNUT CREEK, UM, GREEN BELTS OFF OF BELL CREEK AND ON WILLIAMSON CREEK.

GREAT.

THANKS.

I HAD A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THIS, UH, WHAT SORT OF CHALLENGES, UH, THE GROUP IS FACING, UM, AND WHY DID THE COVID CRISIS AND JUST HOW YOU'RE DEALING WITH THAT, IF THERE'S, UM, YOU KNOW, SOME SORT OF DELAYS BEING ANTICIPATED BECAUSE OF THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, ET CETERA.

YEAH.

THESE BEATS HAD SOME, THE RAYS ON PROJECTS.

UM, THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TOO SIGNIFICANT YET.

SO THERE WAS A LITTLE BIT OF UNCERTAINTY WHEN EVERYTHING CAME DOWN INITIALLY WITH WHAT WAS GOING TO BE THE IMPACT ON CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS.

UM, THE CITY, UM, NEVER STOPPED, UM, OUR OWN SPONSORED PROJECTS, SO THEY NEVER WOULD STOP LIKE OTHER PROJECTS FOR, UM, THERE ARE A FEW INSTANCES WHERE WE'VE STOPPED WORK ON SITE DUE TO, UM, PEOPLE BEING OUT OR NOT BE ABLE TO WORK, UM, DUE TO THE CODE OF CRISIS.

UH, IT HASN'T BEEN ALL THAT SIGNIFICANT.

I MEAN, I THINK WE'VE HAD SUMMIT EILERS.

WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT WITH INTERNAL CONSTRUCTION CREWS.

UM, SO THERE THERE'S BEEN SOME DELAYS.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ALL THAT SIGNIFICANT THOUGH ON THE PRICING SIDE, WE HAVE SEEN MORE BIDS COMING IN FOR OUR DESIGN CONTRACTS AND CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS AND FOR THE CONSTRUCTION ONES SOMETIMES COMING IN LOWER THAN WHAT WE EXPECTED.

UM, SO THAT IS A SOMEWHAT POSITIVE IMPACT FOR THE CITY, UM, IN THAT SENSE, BUT IT HASN'T BEEN ALL THAT SIGNIFICANT WITH, UM, KEEPING PROJECTS MOVING FORWARD.

WE HAVE A LOT OF PROJECTS FROM 2018 MOVING INTO DESIGN PHASE NOW.

SO WE'RE ABLE TO COMPLETE ALL THAT WORK STILL WITH OUR INTERNAL DESIGN STAFF AND WITH THE CONSULTANTS HELPING US OUT WITH THE DESIGN PROCESS.

FANTASTIC.

THAT'S GREAT TO HEAR, UM, UH, ONE ADDITIONAL QUESTION FROM ME, UM, IN REGARDS TO THE SPIN DOWN PLAN ON ADA, UM, DOES THAT DIFFER THAN WHAT YOU GUYS HAVE PRESENTED SIX MONTHS AGO? AND IF SO, BY HOW MUCH, I'M JUST CURIOUS IF THE CURVE WAS MORE STEEP OR LESS, ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT 2012 OR 20? IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE DATA RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, WE CAN FOLLOW UP WITH A CORRESPONDENCE VIA EMAIL.

MS. FINE.

SOUNDS LIKE WE MAY HAVE LOST STEVEN HAD ANY MORE QUESTIONS I SAY, YES.

I'LL FOLLOW UP WITH YOU COMPARING IT TO LAST YEAR'S BUDGET SPENDING PLAN.

OKAY.

THANKS MR. LAMB, I THINK WE'RE READY TO MOVE ON TO THE NEXT PRESENTATION.

PLEASE PULL UP THE PRESENTATION AND WE'LL GET STARTED WITH HI EVERYONE.

MY NAME IS .

I'M A MANAGER WITH AUSTIN, PROBABLY PAL.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT ON OUR 2012 AND 2018 BOND PROJECT.

A BOND PROJECT STRUCTURE IS A LOT SIMPLER THAN PARTS.

WE HAD FOUR BOND PROJECTS IN 2012 AND, UH, ONLY ONE IN 2018.

AND AS SOON AS A PRESENTATION STARTS, I'LL GIVE YOU A BRIEFING ON WHAT HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR AND WHERE WE ARE AT THE 2018 BONDS PROJECT.

SO, UH, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND MOVING TO THE SPENDING SLIDE.

SO, UH, OFTEN THE PRESENTATION WE ARE LOOKING AT SLIDE NUMBER 19.

UM, I HAVE A CONSIDERABLE LAG

[00:35:01]

LOOKING AT THE VIDEO RECORDING OF THE MEETINGS.

SO, UH, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF I'M RUSHING TO FORWARD.

UH, BUT, UH, SLIDE 2019.

YOU CAN SEE THAT WE APPROPRIATED A HUNDRED PERCENT AND, UH, COMMITTED ALMOST A HUNDRED PERCENT IN 2012.

UM, UH, PROPOSITION 17.

UH, WE PRETTY MUCH COMPLETED ALL OUR PROJECTS FROM 2012 BOND OR THE LAST PROJECT, THE ONE SOUTH POLICE RECORD IN THE COMMUNITY CENTER BEING COMPLETED THIS MONTH.

UH, AND THEN WE ARE IN THE DESIGN OF THE 2018 FOR POSITION II PROJECT OR A DOUBT SPRINGS PUBLIC HEALTH CENTER.

UM, WE CAN MOVE TO THE SLIDE, UM, NUMBER, I'M SORRY, NUMBER 22.

UH, WE, THE PROJECTS THAT ARE FROM 2012, BONDS ARE A PARKING LOT EXPANSION.

AND I THOUGHT IN MONTOPOLIS ON HEALTH SITES, UH, THAT HAD DONE CURLY CAMPUS INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS, WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S SHELTER, RETEST AND EXPANSION.

AND ONCE I'LL POST YOUR CREATION COMMUNITY CENTER, UM, ALL THOSE PROJECTS ARE COMPLETED.

OUR 2018 BOND PROJECT IS, UM, UH, DOES SPRINGS PUBLIC HEALTH NEIGHBORHOOD SENATE.

AND, UH, I'LL GIVE YOU A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF ALL THE PROJECTS.

UM, SLIDE NUMBER 23.

UH, THE NEXT SLIDE, UH, PARKING LOT EXPANSION, UH, WAS THE MUCH NEEDED, UH, EXPANSION AT TO HAVE ALL OUR, UH, FAR REACHING SITE, OUR SOUTH AND, UH, MONTOPOLIS NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER.

UH, WE DOUBLED THE PARKING NUMBER OF PARKING SPOTS AND THOSE SITES, UH, IMPROVE THE DRAINAGE MANAGEMENT AND THEN IMPROVED SOME LANDSCAPING.

AND, UM, IF YOU LOOK AT THE NEXT SLIDE, UH, WE EVEN ADDED A VERY NICE, UM, ARKAN PUBLIC PLACES, UH, UH, STRUCTURE, UM, AT MONTOPOLIS NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER SLIDE 25, UM, BOOKS ABOUT, UH, THAT ARE DONE THROUGH CAMPUS IMPROVEMENTS.

UH, WE, UM, RESOLVED MANY DRAINAGE ISSUES THAT WE HAD IS THAT THAT SITE IS A VERY LARGE AND HOW IT IS PROBABLY A QUARTER OF OUR WORKFORCE.

UM, AND WITH THESE DRAINING WHO WERE ABLE TO FULLY UTILIZE ALL THE BUILDINGS OF THE THERE, UM, IMPROVED, WE IMPROVED CAMPUS ROADS, UM, PROJECTED ADDITIONAL SIDEWALKS AND TRAILS AND EXTENDED PARKING WITH 90 MINUTES SPACES, BOTH FOR STAFF AND FOR CLIENTS.

UH, THE BUDGET FOR, UH, THIS, UH, PROJECT WAS 1.9 MILLION AND IT WAS COMPLETED BACK IN 2017.

UM, THE PREVIOUS PROJECT PROJECTED MENTIONED WAS COMPLETED IN 2016 FOR THE PARKING LOT.

UM, NEXT SLIDE, UH, JUST SHOWED SOME OF THE, UH, IMPROVEMENTS WE MADE AND SOME OF THE PREVIOUS CONDITIONS, UH, AND THE PICTURES YOU CAN SEE THE EXTENT OF FLOODING YOU USE.

WE USED TO HAVE AT, UH, UH, CAMPUS, AND NOW THIS IS ALL EVEN DURING THE WORST RAIN, EVERYTHING STAYS DRY AND IT'S FULLY ACCESSIBLE BY FINE AND STAFF.

IF WE MOVE TO SLIDE NUMBER 27 DUCKS ABOUT WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S SHELTER, UH, THIS PROJECT WAS INITIALLY FUNDED WITH $2.8 MILLION AND, UM, UH, THEN RECEIVED ADDITIONAL COUNCIL FUNDING AND $3.27 MILLION.

UH, THE SCOPE FOR THIS PROJECT INVOLVED, UH, MAJOR MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS TO THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN'S SHELTER THAT, THAT BUILDING IS ALMOST A HUNDRED YEARS OLD NOW.

UH, BUT WE WERE ABLE TO CONSTRUCT A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT OF FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM, UH, REPAIR ALL THE PLUMBING, UH, REFRESH ALL THE WINKS AND DORMS. UH, WE ALSO ADDED 36 ADDITIONAL BEDS, UH, FULL NEW DAYCARE WITH THE PLAYGROUND.

UH, WE, UH, NAT ALL DAY FOR THE MOST TIME CODE AND, UH, CONSTRUCTED, UH, SEVERAL ROADS THAT, UH, SITE IMPROVEMENTS.

UH, THIS, THIS PROJECT WAS COMPLETED DOCKING 2018 AND, UM, FULLY FUNCTIONING.

NOW, UH, IF YOU LOOK AT THE NEXT SLIDE, UH, YOU WILL SEE, UM,

[00:40:01]

SOME OF THE DESIGN, UH, AND, UH, OR PLAN FOR THE ADDITIONAL, UH, WINGS THAT ADDED 46 BEDS TO THE FACILITY.

OUR LAST PROJECT FROM 2000.

UM, WELL, UH, HE'S IN SLIDE NUMBER 29, UH, THAT IS A JOINT FACILITY WITH PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT.

UH, ON OUR END, WE ADDED A FULL SERVICE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER, UH, WITH A FOOD PANTRY AND NUMEROUS SERVICES WE OFFER TO OUR NEIGHBOR CENTERS, UH, AND ON THE SECOND FLOOR, UH, WE HAVE A SCHOOL OF YOUTH SERVICES, UH, AND ALSO WE ADD A TRAINING ROOM, SOME MULTIPURPOSE COMMUNITY ROOMS. UM, IT IS A REALLY GOOD SYNERGY AND, UH, HOPEFULLY, UH, A GOOD, UH, PATTERN FOR NEW PROJECTS.

UH, TWO DEPARTMENTS COLLABORATE, UH, CAUSE WE PRETTY MUCH SERVE THE SAME CLIENTELE.

AND, UM, WE REALLY THINK THAT THIS IS MINE FOR WORK.

UH, GREAT, UH, WORKING WITH THE PARTNER, JUST IN THE SAME BUILDING.

UM, I'M SURE YOU SAW, UM, ALL KINDS OF, PRETTY PICTURES FROM THE COMPLETED FACILITY.

IT REALLY LOOKS AMAZING AND, UM, WE WERE HOPING OR LIVE OPENING, BUT THAT HAS TO BE DELAYED BECAUSE OF COVID.

SO NOW WE WILL HAVE SOME SORT OF A, UM, A VIRTUAL RIBBON CUTTING AND, UM, UH, OUR PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICERS FOR ALL DATA FROM ALL THREE DEPARTMENTS, PUBLIC WORKS AND PUBLIC HEALTH ARE WORKING ON A PRESENTATION THAT WILL SHOWCASE THIS FACILITY, UH, TO THE COMMUNITY.

AND IF YOU GO TO SLIDE NUMBER 30, YOU WILL SEE A SORT OF, KIND OF EYE PERSPECTIVE OF THE FACILITY.

UM, UM, FROM THE BACK ON SLIDE 31, UM, UH, IT'S A BRIEF OUTLINE OF OUR 2018 BOND PROJECT AND IT'S THAT SPRINGS PUBLIC HEALTH FACILITY.

UH, IT IS A TWO STORY BUILDING, UH, 23,000 SQUARE FEET.

UM, IT WILL CONTAIN FULL SERVICE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER, UH, WIC CLINIC, IMMUNIZATION CLINIC, HIGH QUALITY CHILDCARE CENTER HAS A ROOM AND WE WILL ALSO UPDATE, UH, SOCCER FIELDS AND FLY TRAILS BECAUSE THIS PROPERTY, UH, IS NEIGHBORING, UH, DOVE SPRINGS REC CENTER AT MAYBE A HUNDRED YARDS AWAY.

UM, AND SO WE'LL ALSO BE A VERY GOOD SYNERGY OFFERING THESE TWO STACKS OF SERVICES ON THE SAME PROPERTY.

UH, THE BUDGET IS 60 MILLION AND WE ESTIMATE A COMPLETION IN SPRING OF 2023, UH, SO FAR, UM, IN TERMS OF PROJECT STATUS, WE, UH, COMPLETED, UH, RFQ FOR A DESIGN BUILDER.

UH, WE COMPLETED CHAPTER 26 BUSES TO USE THIS PART OF THE FLIGHT PLAN OR PROJECT LOCATION.

UH, WE EXECUTED A CONTRACT WITH THE DESIGN BUILDERS FOR GLASS, UM, AND IT WAS APPROVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL AND WE ARE DESIGN PHASE, UH, ALSO, UH, BECAUSE THIS IS A BRAND NEW LOCATION.

WE WERE ABLE TO SECURE AN OFFICIAL ADDRESS FOR THIS FACILITY.

UM, AND ON THE LAST SLIDE, IF YOU LOOK AT THE, AND THE LAND OUTLINE, UH, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THAT SLIDE NUMBER 33, WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THE ORANGE TRACK IS THE TRACK THAT WAS ALLOWED FOR THIS, UH, PUBLIC HEALTH USE.

AND, UM, UH, OUR FACILITY WILL HAVE A FAIRLY SMALL FOOTPRINT, ONLY ABOUT 16,000 SQUARE FEET, UH, AT THE FAR LEFT CORNER.

AND THE REST WILL BE FOR UPDATED SOCCER FIELDS, A NEW PLAYGROUND FOR THE CHILDCARE AND UPDATE ITS TRAIL.

AND THIS WILL CONNECT WITH THE NAVY, UH, NAVY NEIGHBORING, UH, AND THAT I HOPE YOU'RE ABLE TO FOLLOW.

I KNOW MY, MY VIDEOS LACKING CONSIDERABLY.

UH, SO I HOPE YOU WERE ABLE TO FOLLOW AND, UH, PLEASE FEEL FREE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

YES.

WHAT IS IT? WRC CLINIC IT'S BAD FOR WOMEN, INNOCENT CHILDREN, UH, SERVICE THAT PROVIDES, UH, UH, VARIOUS, UH, NUTRITIONAL AND

[00:45:01]

PROGRAMMATIC SUPPORT TO, UH, YOUNG MOTHERS OR EXPECTING MOTHERS.

UH, SO IT IS ONE OF ALL PREVIOUS PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAMS. WE HAD ABOUT 17 CLINICS ACROSS THE CITY AND THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, UM, CURRENTLY HAS ON THE VERY EDGE, UH, LOCATION THAT WE ARE RENTING VERY SMALL SPACE.

SO THIS WILL BE A HUGE IMPROVEMENT TO HAVE, UH, THIS AT THE SERVICE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BEST SPRINGS NEIGHBORHOODS.

WELL, THAT'S WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU.

I HOPE I DIDN'T LOSE YOU.

I'M AVAILABLE IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS AND I'M ON MUTE.

SORRY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

I DON'T THINK THERE ARE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.

UM, DO APPRECIATE IT.

THANKS FOR ANOTHER GOOD WORD.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.

RIGHT ON A WATERSHED PROTECTION, WE JUST DO A CHECK.

CAN EVERYONE HEAR ME? YES.

THANK YOU.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

UM, I DON'T SEE THE SLIDE YET, BUT I KNOW THERE'S SOME DELAY HERE.

UM, BUT, UH, THANK YOU COMMISSIONERS.

MY NAME IS MORGAN BYERS.

I'M WITH WATERSHED PROTECTION DEPARTMENT AND THE MANAGER OF THE CAPITAL PROGRAM MANAGEMENT OFFICE.

I'M ALSO ON THE LINE TODAY WITH ME IS KELLY GAGNAN WITH WATERSHED AND SHE'S WITH OUR POLICY AND PLANNING GROUP WHO PRESENTED TO YOU GUYS THE INITIAL, UM, PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PLAN.

AND SO I KIND OF WHERE MY ROLE TAKES OVER IS MAKING SURE AND MONITORING AND PROVIDING PROGRAM MANAGEMENT FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION.

IF Y'ALL AREN'T AS FAMILIAR WITH WATERSHED, IF WE HAVE SOME NEW WE'RE ESSENTIALLY THE STORM WATER UTILITY FOR THE CITY, UM, WHICH MEANS WE MANAGE THE, THE DRAINAGE INFRASTRUCTURE SYSTEM, WHICH IS ALL OF THE PIPES UNDERGROUND AND THE STORMWATER DETENTION PONDS AND WATER QUALITY PONDS AND THE OPEN DRAINAGE NETWORK AS WELL, WHICH INCLUDES CREEKS AND, UM, MANMADE OPEN DRAINAGE STRUCTURES AS WELL.

UM, AND ALSO WE WERE INVOLVED WITH, UM, REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS FOR LAND DEVELOPMENT, YOU KNOW, RELATED TO IMPERVIOUS COVER AND RE MANAGING RUNOFF VOLUMES.

AND ALSO WE HAVE ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE GROUP WHO MANAGES THE STORM WATER PERMIT PROGRAM.

WE'RE HERE TODAY TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE, THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT SIDE OF THINGS, BUT I JUST WANTED TO GIVE YOU THAT OVERVIEW.

AND JUST ALSO JUST THE, THE MISSION STATEMENT FOR WATERSHED IS THAT WE PROTECT LIVES PROPERTY AND THE ENVIRONMENT, UM, BY REDUCING THE IMPACT OF FLOOD EROSION AND PROVIDE FOR PROTECTION OF WATER POLLUTION.

OKAY, LET'S GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

AND, AND TODAY WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THE SIMILAR TO THE OTHER PRESENTERS, THE STATUS OF THE 2012 BOND EXPENDITURES AND HOW WE PLANS ARE FOR THE 2018.

UM, I AM ON CAN, THERE'S A DELAY, SO I'M JUST ASSUMING YOU'RE KEEPING UP WITH, I HAD THE WHITE SLIDE WITH THE GEO BOND SUMMARY.

UM, WE DID RECEIVE IN 2012, UM, $30 MILLION FOR OPEN SPACE ACQUISITION.

UM, AND WE'RE HERE TODAY TO FOCUS MORE SO ON THE 2018 BOND WHERE WE RECEIVED A TOTAL OF 184 MILLION, WHERE THAT'S DIVIDED BY 72 MILLION FOR ADDITIONAL OPEN SPACE ACQUISITION, AND 112 FOR THE MORE FLOOD RISK REDUCTION AND INFRASTRUCTURE TYPE PROJECTS.

AND WE'LL GO INTO SOME MORE DETAILS ON THOSE PROJECTS WHEN WE MOVE FORWARD.

OKAY.

ON THE NEXT SLIDE, YOU SHOULD BE SEEING THE, THE BALANCES FROM THE, FROM THE PREVIOUS BONDS AND FOR 2012.

I MEAN, THAT ALL THAT MONEY IS ESSENTIALLY SPENT AND WAS WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OR TWO OF RECEIVING THAT MONEY.

WE DO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF CHANGE LEFT AND THAT'S BEING USED RIGHT NOW FOR

[00:50:01]

JUST ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES, FIELD NOTES AND REAL ESTATE SERVICES.

BUT THE PREPONDERANCE OF IT WAS SPENT, UM, ALMOST IMMEDIATELY, AND OUR FOCUS TODAY ON THE 2018 BOND.

UM, IT'S, IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WE'VE APPROPRIATED, UM, ABOUT HALF OF IT.

AND EVEN OF THAT AMOUNT, WE'VE ALREADY SPENT ABOUT HALF OF THE AMOUNT THAT WE'VE RECEIVED OUR BOND, UM, DISBURSEMENTS ARE BEING PROVIDED OVER A PERIOD OF FIVE YEARS OR THROUGH 2023 GUESS THAT'S FOUR YEARS FROM 19.

UM, AND WE'LL GO THROUGH THE, THE SPENDING FOR THAT, BUT JUST WHAT THIS REPRESENTS IS WE'RE ALREADY OFF TO A GOOD START AND WE DO HAVE A PLAN TO SPEND THAT WITHIN THE BOND PLAN TIMEFRAME, NEXT SLIDE.

AND WHAT I'M SHOWING HERE IS ESSENTIALLY THE BURNDOWN CURVE WE'RE SPENDING ON THE 2012 BOND.

AND AS I'D MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY, UM, THAT WAS DONE WITHIN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME.

AND SO WE'VE ESSENTIALLY COMPLETED THE ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THAT, WHICH WERE ALL OPEN SPACE ACQUISITIONS.

UM, I CAN EXPAND A LITTLE BIT ON THE, THE, THE PURPOSE OF THE OPEN SPACE ACQUISITIONS, WHERE WE PURCHASE WATER QUALITY PROTECTION LANDS, AND THE INTENT THERE IS TO PRESERVE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF WATER ENTERING.

AND WE REALLY FOCUS ON THE BARTON SPRING SEGMENT OF THE EDWARDS AQUIFER.

ALL OF THIS IS RECHARGED LANDS.

THAT'S VERY SENSITIVE AND WE EITHER PURCHASE PROPERTIES OUTRIGHT AS OPPORTUNITIES BECOME AVAILABLE, OR WE APPLY A CONSERVATION EASEMENT ON THAT LAND, BUT YET PROTECTED IN PERPETUITY FROM DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY.

BUT IT IS.

SO THE TITLE IS STILL HELD BY A PROPERTY OWNER OR A CONSERVANCY OF SOME SORT.

AND NOT ONLY DOES IT PROVIDE FOR WATERFALL, I'LL BE PROTECTION FOR BARTON SPRINGS, BUT ALSO PROTECTS IT FOR DOWNSTREAM IMPACTS OF FLOODING AND EROSION AND WATER QUALITY ON THE RECEIVING STRAINS.

UM, A LOT OF THE PROPERTY PURCHASE IN HAYS COUNTY TRAINS DIRECTLY TO ONION CREEK AND PROTECTS THE RESOURCES SUCH AS MCKINNEY BALLS AND ANY INCREASE METRO PARK.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND SO JUST A LITTLE BIT OF MORE DETAIL ON THE 2012 BONDS, WE ENDED UP ACQUIRING FIVE MAJOR ACQUISITIONS FOR THOSE WERE THE SIMPLE ONE WAS A CONSERVATION EASEMENT, AS I DESCRIBED PREVIOUSLY FOR A TOTAL OF 1800 ACRES.

AND THIS, THIS PICTURE HERE IS A PICTURE OF BARTON CREEK, OKAY.

ONTO THE NEXT SLIDE.

AND HERE WE'RE GOING TO GET INTO THE 2018 FUNDING.

UM, WE HAVE SEPARATED OUT THE LAND ACQUISITION FUNDING FROM THE MORE FLOOD RISK REDUCTION, INFRASTRUCTURE FUNDING, AND IT'S A BIT SIMILAR TO PARDES ACQUISITIONS.

UM, A LOT OF THOSE ARE OPPORTUNITY BASED AND IT'S BIT MORE CHALLENGING TO PREDICT A SPENDING CURVE.

CAUSE WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHEN THOSE ARE COMING, BUT WE DO HAVE, UM, A REAL ESTATE OFFICE BASICALLY MONITORING IT'S IN THE PARTICULAR AREA OF INTEREST, EDWARD SPARTAN, SPRING SEGMENT.

AND, UM, WE'VE NEVER HAD AN ISSUE SPENDING DOWN THAT MONEY.

IT'S JUST HARD TO PREDICT AND WHAT YEAR WILL COME AND SIMILAR SUPPLIER GROUP, UM, WE SHOULDN'T HAVE NO PROBLEMS SPENDING THE 72 WITHIN THE FIVE YEAR TIMEFRAME.

AND IT'S ACTUALLY, I THINK, EIGHT PER THE RESOLUTION, BUT, UM, WE'LL BE DEFINITELY BE AHEAD OF THAT.

UM, AND SO WE, THIS IS MINE IS DELAYED.

YEAH.

SO I'M ON THE 2018 PROPOSITION SLIDE.

AND SO THAT'S 112 MILLION AND WE'LL GO INTO A LITTLE MORE DETAILED, BUT THAT'S DIVIDED UP BETWEEN WATERSHEDS MISSIONS OF FLOOD RISK REDUCTION, WHICH INCLUDES A COMPONENT FOR CREEKS AND THE STORM DRAIN THE UNDERGROUND SYSTEM.

UM, AND OUR OPEN CHANNEL, UH, THE EROSION MISSION, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY ASSET MANAGEMENT FOR THE OPEN, OPEN WATER SYSTEM.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM OUR DOWN CURVE, OUR CURRENT SCHEDULES AND SPENDING PLANS SHOW US UTILIZING THOSE FUNDS BY FYI 25, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE BOND RESOLUTION.

OKAY, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND SO WORKING WITH THE, YOU KNOW, THE BOND ADVISORY TASK FORCE, WE PRESENTED A LIST OF 18 PROJECTS AND THESE ARE COMBINATION OF, UM, CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS.

AND THERE ARE SOME FLOOD RISK REDUCTION

[00:55:01]

BUYOUTS AS WELL, BUT IT'S UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF FLOOD FLOOD RISK REDUCTION.

I'LL DESCRIBE THAT IN A BIT, BUT WE FOLLOW THE WATERSHED PROTECTION MASTER PLAN, WHICH IS BASED ON IDENTIFYING PROJECTS BASED ON PROBLEM VERITY, WHICH IS REALLY RECURRENCE OF FLOODING.

WE FOCUS ON AREAS THAT HAVE HAD RECURRING FLOOD ISSUES AND AREAS WHERE THE FLOOD PLAIN MODELS PREDICT, UM, AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF FLOODING AND THAT'S PRIORITIZED CITYWIDE.

AND WE HAVE SIMILAR PRIORITIZATION METHODS FOR THE CREEK EROSION CREEK EROSION MISSION BASED ON NUMBER OF PROPERTIES IMPACTED.

SO WE'RE CONTINUALLY MODERATE MONITORING THESE SYSTEMS AND WE HAVE ASSET MANAGEMENT PLANS IN PLACE SIMILAR TO PART ON, YOU KNOW, WHAT BECOMES THE HIGHEST PRIORITY.

OKAY, NEXT SLIDE.

THE NEXT ONE IS JUST SHOWING A REPRESENTATION OF THE, THE DRAINAGE STORMWATER PROJECT CITYWIDE, THE 112 MILLION.

AND IT'S REALLY JUST INTENDED TO SHOW THAT WE HAVE, UH, A DISTRIBUTION CITYWIDE OF THESE PROJECTS AND, UH, NUMEROUS COUNCIL DISTRICTS NEXT SLIDE.

AND IT SHOULD BE ON THE CREEK FLOOD RISK REDUCTION SLIDE.

AND SO THIS IS A LIST OF THE PROJECTS AND WE'LL HAVE A SLIDE FOR EACH ONE OF OUR MISSION AREAS.

AS I'VE MENTIONED, CREEK FLOOD RISK REDUCTION, WE'LL GET INTO LOCAL FLOOD RISK REDUCTION, WHICH IS THE PIPING SYSTEM AND THEN THE EROSION MISSION.

AND SO FOR CREEK FLOOD RISK REDUCTION, WE HAVE A TOTAL OF FIVE PROJECTS, UM, WITH THE ONE THAT'S AT THE VERY TOP THERE YOU MAY HAVE MAY BE FAMILIAR WITH, BUT THIS IS THE ONION CREEK BUYOUT PROGRAM, WHICH WE'VE BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL IN.

THIS IS AN AREA OF TOWN THAT HAS EXPERIENCED A REPETITIVE FLOODING AND SPECIFICALLY THE OCTOBER FLOODS OF 2013 AND 2019, UM, TO DATE FOR THE UPPER ONION AREA, WE'VE PURCHASED APPROXIMATELY 117 PROPERTIES AND WE FULLY SPEND EXPENDED, BUT 2018 BOND FUNDING FOR, OR THIS AREA.

CAUSE WE, THE REASON WE'RE THE WAY WE WERE ABLE TO DO THAT IS WE HAVE AN ACTIVE BUYOUT PROGRAM GOING ON AND ACTUALLY IN THE LOWER UNCREATE ONION CREEK AREA.

AND THERE WAS UPWARDS OF A THOUSAND INDIVIDUAL RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES PURCHASED OVER THE LAST FIVE, SIX YEARS.

SO THAT WHEN YOU PROBABLY HEARD A LOT ABOUT IN THE PAST YEARS, AND THEN THERE'S JUST A DISTRIBUTION OF OTHER CREEK FLOODING PROJECTS AND OKAY, CHRIS NEIGHBORHOOD, THAT'S COMBINED WITH THE OAK PARK NEIGHBORHOOD CAUSE THEY'RE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY AND WE INTEND TO DISTURB THE NEIGHBORHOOD ONCE AND YOU'LL SEE THE OAK PARK IN THE NEXT NEXT SLIDE.

UM, WE ALSO HAVE A LOW WATER CROSSING IMPROVEMENT.

THAT'S ANOTHER FLAVOR OF PROJECTS THAT WE DO, UM, BY UPGRADING THESE LITTLE WATER CROSSINGS, RECOGNIZING THAT ONE OF THE KEY CAUSES OF BLOOD DEATHS IS DUE TO, UM, VEHICLES CROSSING, UM, FLOODED, FLOODED BRIDGES IN LOW WATER CROSSINGS.

AND SO IT'S A VERY HIGH PRIORITY AREA FOR US.

UM, THE NEXT ONE IS RELATED TO MANAGEMENT OF A LARGE STORMWATER FACILITY, ESSENTIALLY A DETENTION POND IN WHICH THE NORTHWEST PARK RESIDES.

SO IT'S A COMBINATION FLOOD DETENTION POND AND RECREATIONAL AREA, BUT THIS STRUCTURE HAS SOME, SOME UPGRADE AND MODERNIZATION NEEDS THAT ARE WELL BEYOND OUR OPERATIONAL OR INTERNAL FIELD OPERATIONS ABILITIES.

SO WE'RE GOING WITH A CIP PROJECT ON THIS ONE.

AND THEN THERE'S ANOTHER CHANNEL RELATED PLOD PROJECT IN THE ONION CREEK BASIN AT PACERS NIL THAT WE EXPECT TO DO SOME WORK WITHIN THE CREEK CHANNEL.

SO ALL THESE ARE A BIT DIFFERENT FLAVORS OF THE TYPE OF WORK THAT WE DO RELATED TO CREEK FLOODING.

AND I WANT TO DRAW THE DISTINCTION AS WE GET INTO THE NEW SLIDE BETWEEN NEXT SLIDE BETWEEN CREEK FLOODING AND, UM, LOCALIZED FLOODING AND CREEK FLOODING IS REALLY WHEN THE WATER COMES OUT OF ITS BANKS AND START SPREADING OUT INTO THE FLOOD PLAIN.

AND NOW THAT IN ITSELF IS NOT NECESSARILY A PROBLEM, BUT, UM, AS THE CITY HAS GROWN, WE'VE ACTUALLY INHERITED A LOT OF PROPERTIES THAT WERE DEVELOPED PRIOR TO THE FLOOD PLAIN REGULATIONS.

AND THOSE PROPERTIES ARE IN THE FLOOD PLAIN.

AND WE'RE NOW IN THE EFFORTS TO REDUCING THE FLOOD RISK, UM, AND IN THOSE AREAS, OKAY, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

[01:00:03]

THE NEXT AREA IS THE LOCAL FLOOD RISK REDUCTION MISSION.

AND THERE'S A FEW PROJECTS LISTED HERE.

THIS IS PROBABLY, THIS IS REALLY WHERE THE LARGEST NUMBER OF PROJECTS ARE IDENTIFIED.

UM, WHEREAS IT, IT'S KIND OF A BALANCE BETWEEN CREEK FLOOD AND LOCAL FLOODING.

REALLY, THOSE ARE THE DOMINANT DRIVERS, ESPECIALLY ON OUR BOND, UM, PACKAGES, BUT INSTEAD OF GOING THROUGH ALL OF THESE INDIVIDUALLY, THERE ARE LINKS TO THE WEBSITES FOR EACH OF THESE PROJECTS, UM, TO GET MORE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, BUT THESE ARE PRIORITIZED SIDE BY PROBLEM SEVERITY, BUT WE DO TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE BEING EQUITABLE IN THE DISTRIBUTION OF THESE PROJECTS ACROSS THE CITY.

AND IF THERE'S ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ON THE SHOW, I MAY WANNA TAKE NOTES AND WE'LL TRY TO ANSWER THEM AT THE END OR IF WE CAN'T GET THE INFORMATION OR IF WE DON'T HAVE IT AT THE TIP OF OUR FINGERTIPS, WE'LL, WE'LL FOLLOW UP AND PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION.

BUT THE ADDITIONAL MESSAGE HERE IS THAT ALL THESE PROJECTS ARE IN DESIGN AND WE DO HAVE PLANS TO START CONSTRUCTION ON THEM WITHIN THE NEXT FEW YEARS.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

AND THEN THIS NEXT ONE IS OUR STREAM RESTORATION PROGRAM, WHICH WE TIED TO THE EROSION MISSION.

AND IF I DIDN'T EXPLAIN ENOUGH PREVIOUSLY, UM, THESE TRAININGS CHANNELS ARE RESPONDING TO THE IMPACTS OF URBANIZATION.

AS WE ADD MORE IMPERVIOUS COVER, THE STORMWATER RUNOFF INCREASES AND ALSO WITH INCREASES IN FLOWS OVER TIME.

THESE DRAINAGE CHANNELS ESSENTIALLY CAN'T HANDLE THE ADDITIONAL LOAD AND THEY, THEY RESPOND IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

UM, THE ONES THAT ARE MORE RESILIENT, IF YOU WILL DO HAVE A BETTER DO A BETTER JOB, BUT THE ONES THAT ARE MADE OF EARTH AND GRASP TEND TO GET BIGGER AND WIDER.

AND THAT IN ITSELF, AGAIN, IT'S NOT NECESSARILY AN ISSUE, BUT WHEN WE HAVE PROPERTIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE AND ROADWAYS, UM, WITHIN THE LIMITS OF THIS EROSION, THAT'S WHEN WE HAVE TO STEP IN AND PROVIDE MITIGATION MEASURES.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROJECTS WE'RE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW IS IN THE, UH, ROY GUERRERO PARK WHERE IT'S, UM, A DRAINAGE CHANNEL THAT'S REALLY UNRAVELING FROM ITS LOCATION OF THE COLORADO RIVER.

AND IT'S SOMEWHAT LIKE A ZIPPER JUST KEEPS MOVING UP THE STREAM.

SO WE'RE IN DESIGN, WE'RE AT 60% DESIGN AND WE HOPE TO GET OUT CLEAR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BUT IT'S, IT'S NOT AN EASY FIX.

AND IT'S PRETTY COMPLICATED ON HOW TO PICK SOME OF THESE WHEN YOU'RE WORKING IN NATURAL SYSTEMS. UM, IT'S NOT LIKE YOU JUST DEVELOP A BUNCH OF ROCKS AT IT AND IT STAYS.

SO SOME OF THESE DESIGNS GET PRETTY, UM, COMPLEX.

AND I'LL ALSO NOTE THAT ALL THIS WORK WE'RE KIND OF DOING BEHIND THE SCENES.

IT'S NOT ALWAYS HIGHLY VISIBLE, BUT IT PROTECTS THE LONG TERM SUSTAINABILITY OF THE CITY.

IF WE'RE NOT IN THERE TAKING CARE OF THESE, THESE ASSETS, UM, SOME OF THE OTHER ONES ARE MORE OF OUR TRADITIONAL, UM, URBAN CHANNELS THAT ARE USUALLY HAVE HOUSES ON BOTH SIDES AND THE LITTLE WALNUT CREEK JAMESTOWN, TRIBUTARY GOT SOME IN WILLIAMSON, UM, SHOW CREEK IN BUTTERMILK, THEY'RE THE ONES REPRESENTED HERE.

UM, SO WE TRY TO PICK THE HIGHEST PRIORITY PROJECTS AND DO THOSE FIRST.

AND SOME OF THESE ARE IN PLANNING AND, UM, THE OTHER TWO ARE IN DESIGN, BUT THE PLANNING ONES WE INTEND TO CATCH UP BY THE END OF THE BOND TIMEFRAME.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

.

AND SO A LITTLE BIT ON THE, THE OPEN SPACE BOND IS A SEPARATE, UM, WE JUST TAKE THAT MONEY AND PUT IT IN A SEPARATE BUCKET.

AND I THINK I'VE ALREADY MENTIONED IT SIMILAR TO PARD.

IT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO PREDICT THE SPENDING PLAN.

AND ONE OF THE OTHER FACTORS IS WE TRY TO KEEP OUR CARDS CLOSE SOMEWHERE.

WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE SPENDING THE MONEY AND THAT'S REALLY DUE TO PRESERVE THE PROPERTY OR PROTECT US FROM ARTIFICIALLY INCREASES IN THE PROPERTY VALUES.

UM, AND OKAY, NOW LET'S SEE THE SLIDE HERE.

UM, BUT IT'S ALL OF IT IS VERY TRANSPARENT ONCE WE GET TO THE POINT OF ACQUIRING A PROPERTY AND THAT'S ALL APPROVED BY COUNCIL, BUT I THINK YOU CAN UNDERSTAND IF WE'RE, IT'S VERY EXPLICIT THAT WE'RE TARGETING A PROPERTY, THE PROPERTY OWNER MAY TAKE ACTION TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF THAT PROPERTY.

AND SO THAT'S, I GUESS THAT'S THE BEST WAY I CAN FRAME THAT, UM, ON WHY IT'S MORE CHALLENGING TO HAVE A SPENDING PLAN ON THAT TYPE OF ACTIVITY.

AND THEN LET'S JUST MOVE TO THE NEXT SLIDE, CAUSE THAT'LL GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT MORE GRAPHIC REPRESENTATION AS WELL AND SO

[01:05:01]

THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE AGGREGATION OF WATER QUALITY PROTECTION LANDS IN BLUE.

I BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT THAT ACTUALLY THE BLUE IS THE, THE, THE CONTRIBUTING RECHARGE SOUND.

I'M SORRY.

IT WAS KIND OF ZOOMED DOWN ON, ON MY END AND THE PROPERTIES WE'VE THUS FAR ACQUIRED AND, UM, FROM THE 2018 BOND ARE SHOWN IN RED AND SOME OF THE PREVIOUS ONES ARE SHOWN IN GREEN AND PURPLE AND WE'VE OVER OVERTIME.

WE'VE HAD SEVERAL WON PACKAGES SUPPORT THIS EFFORT.

AND SO IT'S 2018.

YEAH.

THERE'S THREE PROPERTIES FOR A TOTAL OF 1100 ACRES THAT WE'VE ACQUIRED THUS FAR.

AND MOST OF THESE ARE IN HAYS COUNTY.

AND THE REASON WE'RE GOING OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS IS BECAUSE THESE DO CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY TO THE BARTON SPRINGS SEGMENT OF THE EDWARDS AQUIFER AND THE LAND DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS IN THOSE AREAS ARE LESS PROTECTED THAN WHAT WE HAVE IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

SO THERE'S A POTENTIAL THAT THESE COULD BE DEVELOPED TO A HIGH DEGREE.

AND SO BY TAKING THESE, UM, THAT POTENTIAL AND PROTECTING THEM IN PERPETUITY IS A, IS A BIG BENEFIT TO THE WATER RESOURCES IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN, EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE A LITTLE BIT FURTHER OUT.

OKAY, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

AND SO THIS IS JUST A OVERVIEW OR HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PROJECTS THAT ARE, THAT ARE MOST EMINENT OR UPCOMING.

I HAD MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY AND SPENT A LITTLE TIME ON THE ONION CREEK RISK REDUCTION PROJECT AGAIN, WHICH WE'VE ESSENTIALLY SPENT THE 30 MILLION THAT WAS DEDICATED TO THAT OUT OF THE 112 AND A COUPLE OF PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE COMING UP.

UM, AND ARE IN THE LAKE AUSTIN WATERSHED, UH, MEREDITH STREET, FLOOD RISK REDUCTION, UM, SIZED STORM DRAIN SYSTEM THAT ESSENTIALLY OVERFLOWS RIGHT INTO SEVERAL PROPERTIES.

IF YOU CAN PICTURE ONE OF THESE INLETS THAT YOU SEE ON THE SIDE OF THE STREET, A LITTLE OPENING, THE LITTLE SLIT OPENINGS, I'M SURE MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT AS ATTENDANT TO WHAT THOSE DO, BUT IF THE WATER CAN'T GET IN THOSE, THEN IT ESSENTIALLY SPILLS OVER THE ROAD AND, AND FREQUENTLY INTO, UH, A PROPERTY OWNER'S HOUSE.

UM, WE ALSO HAVE A PRETTY LONG HISTORY OF FLOODING AND THE LESSEN BOLDEN CREEK NEIGHBORHOOD ALONG LAMAR.

AND THIS PROJECT WILL BE LAUNCHING ACTUALLY IN THE NEXT MONTH OR SO.

UM, AND ALL OF THESE HAVE WEBSITE ADDRESSES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE LAST ONE, WHICH IS IN THE JANUARY DRIVE NEIGHBORHOOD ON WALNUT CREEK.

AND THE REASON THERE'S, WE'RE DOING SOME OF THE DESIGN IN HOUSE AND THEN WE'LL CONTRACT THE CONSTRUCTION, UM, THROUGH CIP CONTRACTOR.

SO TO THE RIGHT IS JUST SOME LINKS TO RESOURCES AS FAR AS THE WATERSHED PROTECTION WEBSITE.

UM, AND THEN THERE'S ALSO AN AREA WHERE YOU CAN LOOK UP THE PROJECTS, IF THERE'S ANY OF THESE, YOU'D LIKE TO FIND MORE INFORMATION IN INFORMATION ON, AND THEN THE PROPOSITION AND, AND BOND BROCHURE THAT HAS THE PROJECTS IDENTIFIED FROM THE ORIGINAL TASK FORCE.

SO WITH THAT, I MEAN, I KEPT IT MODERATELY HIGH LEVEL, BUT WE CAN MOVE ON.

AND IF THERE'S ANY QUESTIONS, I'D BE HAPPY TO TAKE THOSE HITS, WHICH TIME ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS FROM THE COMMISSIONS? I HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

I JUST SENT YOU A TIME CHECK AS WELL.

IT'S TWO 15, WE HAVE 15 MINUTES LEFT.

SO, UM, IF YOU HAVE ANY IN DEPTH QUESTIONS, YOU'D LIKE RESPONSES, PLEASE SEND THEM THE EMAIL TO MEGAN AND SHE'LL GET THIS FORWARDED ON FOR RESPONSES.

UM, YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF QUICK ONES.

I DON'T KNOW THAT QUICK TWO QUESTIONS.

ONE IS WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT WATERSHED PROTECTION AND THAT POSITION YOU'VE GOT ESSENTIALLY TWO PROBLEMS. ONE IS THAT THE EXISTING CITY LIMITS OUT AND AS THE CITY IS GROWING, THAT'S A DIFFERENT CHALLENGE.

SO DO YOU HAVE A GLOBAL VIEW OF READING THE SAME LIMITS, HOW YOU'D LIKE TO APPLY LAND AND DO ALL THE SHIFTS, PROJECTION, ET CETERA.

AND SECONDLY, AS A CITY IS GROWING, ARE YOU PREEMPTIVELY ACQUIRING THE LAND SO THAT AS THE CITY GROWS, YOU'RE ALREADY READY FOR IT, THAT YOU'VE GOT THE LAND ALREADY ACQUIRED AND ASSIGN SO THAT YOU CAN DO WORSHIP PRODUCTION.

I HAD TROUBLE HEARING QUITE, QUITE A BIT OF THAT, BUT THE SECOND QUESTION I UNDERSTOOD WAS RELATED TO PREEMPTIVELY ACQUIRING LAND TO PREVENT FUTURE PROBLEMS. YEAH.

THE FIRST QUESTION WAS THAT THE EXISTING

[01:10:01]

CITY LIMITS, YOU KNOW, THE OLDER PART OF THE CITY, ET CETERA, YOU KNOW, HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT, DO YOU KNOW, WHAT IS YOUR GLOBAL STRATEGY ON ACQUIRING LAND IN THE ALREADY BUILT OUT PLACES IN THE CITY SO THAT YOU COULD DO BETTER WORSHIP PRODUCTION? AND THE SECOND QUESTION IS AS THE CITY GROWS AND ACQUIRES MORE LAND OR DJS, HOW DO YOU PLAN AHEAD FOR WATERSHED PROTECTION? OKAY.

I'VE HEARD, ANSWERED THOSE QUESTIONS.

SO WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS, WE PRIMARILY FOCUS ON JUST THE KNOWN, BUT SHE YOU'RE STILL TALKING OR YOU'RE DELAYED.

I THINK SO Y'ALL POKE ME IF I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF YOU'RE STILL TALKING, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I'M SEEING ON MY SCREEN, BUT LET ME JUST DO MY BEST BASED ON WHAT I THINK I UNDERSTOOD RELATED TO WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS EXISTING ISSUES.

UM, WE PRIMARILY FOCUS ON FLOODING ISSUES AS, AS, AS THEY ARE THE NEED.

THERE, WE HAVE OVER 7,000 PROPERTIES WITHIN THE FLOOD PLAIN, AND WE CAN REALLY ONLY ADJUST ADDRESS A CERTAIN PORTION OF THOSE.

AND ACQUISITION IS REALLY JUST ONE OF THE TOOLS IN OUR TOOLBOX.

UM, WE ALWAYS LOOK AT, IS THERE A STRUCTURAL SOLUTION? CAN WE BUILD A BIG DETENTION POND OR CAN WE DO SOMETHING WITH THE CREEK OR THE CHANNEL BY DIVERTING FLOWS? UM, AND WE ESSENTIALLY JUST DO A COST AND BENEFIT ANALYSIS.

WHAT'S WHAT'S THE MOST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION AND ACQUISITIONS OFTEN COME TO THE TOP, JUST DUE TO THE COMPLICATIONS WITH TRYING TO MANAGE A MAJOR CREEK SYSTEM LIKE ONION CREEK, FOR EXAMPLE, IT'S SO FAR DOWN IN THE WATERSHEDS, THE FLOWS ARE SO ENORMOUS.

UM, WE'RE REALLY FIGHTING MOTHER NATURE IN THAT SCENARIO.

AND WE GO THROUGH AN ANALYSIS TO COMPARE THE COST.

AND ALSO THE ADVANTAGE IN THOSE SITUATIONS IS THE FLOOD RISK IS ELIMINATED FOREVER.

IN THOSE PARTICULAR AREAS WHERE WITH A STRUCTURAL SOLUTION, YOU STILL MAY HAVE SOME RESIDUAL RISK.

IT'S GOING TO BE DESIGNED UP TO SAY A HUNDRED YEAR EVENT WHERE WE MAY SEE TWO OF THOSE NEXT YEAR.

IT'S ALL REALLY BASED ON STATISTICS AS FAR AS PREEMPTIVELY ACQUIRING LAND WITHIN THE CITY TO HELP OFFSET THAT.

WELL, I MEAN, I THINK YOU ALL CAN UNDERSTAND JUST THE VALUE OF LAND WITHIN THE CITY IS BECOMING LARGER BY THE DAY IT'S MORE PEOPLE ARE MOVING TO AUSTIN AND WE TAKE PROPERTIES OR WE ACQUIRE PROPERTIES ON AN OPPORTUNITY BASIS, BUT I'LL JUST ADMIT THAT THAT IS VERY SMALL.

UM, WE HAVE ENOUGH NEED JUST DEALING WITH THE EXISTING PROBLEMS WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS.

NOW, WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WATER QUALITY PROTECTION OUTSIDE OF THE CITY LIMITS, UM, WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, THERE'S, THERE'S LARGER EXPANSES OF LAND THAT ARE AVAILABLE THAT BASICALLY KIND OF ON THE EDGE OF THE HILL COUNTRY HERE.

AND THOSE ARE PRIORITIZED BY THE WATER QUALITY BENEFITS, BUT THEY DO HAVE ANCILLARY BENEFITS FOR REDUCING FLOOD RISK TO A CERTAIN DEGREE, BUT THOSE ACTIVITIES, UM, AND ESSENTIALLY THEY'RE, THEY'RE FURTHER UP IN THE WATERSHED.

SO BY THE TIME YOU GET TO SAY ONION CREEK, THERE'S SO MUCH ADDITIONAL WATER COMING IN, THEY HAVE SOME IMPACT ON THE, ON THE FLOODING, BUT, UM, MUCH LESS TO THE DEGREE THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY IMPACT SAY A NEIGHBORHOOD THAT IS FOUR FEET UNDER IN THE FLOOD PLAIN, IS THAT YOU GET TO MOST OF WHAT YOU'RE ASKING ABOUT.

AND IF YOU HAVE MORE DETAIL THAT WE CAN, WE CAN LAY OUT A MORE DETAILED RESPONSE.

I WAS JUST HAVING A HARD TIME HEARING THE QUESTION IN FULL.

OKAY, THANK YOU, MR. BARS.

AND WE DO APPRECIATE IT.

AND, UM, YES, MY WAY, LIKE I JUST HAVE TWO CLARIFYING CLARIFICATION QUESTIONS IF I MAY.

YEAH, SURE.

GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER.

ON THE, ON THE ROY G. PARK PROJECT, UM, OR WE ON THE TIMELINE OR THE COUNTRY CLUB CREEK, UH, PROJECT, BECAUSE THAT, ALTHOUGH WE HAVEN'T HAD MUCH RAIN LATELY, WHENEVER IT DOES, THAT IS A QUICKLY DETERIORATING CREEK RIGHT THERE, THE BANK STAR IS VERY ERODIBLE SOILS.

WHERE ARE WE ON TIMELINE ON THAT? SO WE'RE, WE'RE, WE'RE CURRENTLY AT THE 60% DESIGN PHASE ON THAT PROJECT.

AND THE GO BACK TO THE SCHEDULE, I BELIEVE WE'RE SLATED TO START CONSTRUCTION

[01:15:01]

AND IN 20 WE'RE SLATED AT THIS TIME TO START
