UH, WE'RE DOING THIS MEETING VIRTUALLY A QUORUM OF THE ORDER DIRECTORS IS PRESENT.

UM, WE'RE GOING TO COME BACK LATER AND CONSIDER THE AGENDA, BUT I DID WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE WERE NO SPEAKERS THAT HAD SIGNED UP TO SPEAK ON ANY ACTION BEING TAKEN TODAY.

LET ME ASK THAT QUESTION AGAIN.

DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS TO SPEAK ANY OF THE AUSTIN HOUSING PRODUCTS CORPORATION AND WE DO NOT MA'AM OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SO WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO RECESS THE AUSTIN HOUSING FINANCE CORPORATION, MEANING WE'LL COME BACK AND PICK THIS UP LATER.

UM, ALRIGHT.

I'M GOING TO CONVENE THE AUSTIN HOUSING FINANCE CORPORATION MEETING NOW, WHICH MEANS I'M GOING TO RECESS THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING HERE AT 1122.

UH, WE ARE GOING TO RECONVENE THE ALLSTON HOUSING FINANCE CORPORATION MEETING HERE ON, UH, AUGUST 27TH.

WE HAD EARLIER CONVENE THE MEETING AND THEN WE WENT INTO A RECESS.

UM, WE DID THAT SO WE COULD TAKE, UH, ANY SPEAKERS THAT HAD SIGNED UP TO SPEAK, UH, WHERE YOU ARE NOW WITH OUR AGENDA.

THE STAFF WANT TO TAKE US THROUGH THE CONSENT AGENDA FOR TODAY.

THIS IS MANDY DE MAYO AUSTIN HEALTH FINANCE CORPORATION.

THERE ARE SEVEN ITEMS ON THE AGENDA AS YOU PREVIOUSLY, I AM, HAS BEEN WRONG EIGHT ON THIS ONE AND TWO ARE UPRISING CUSTOMER ACQUISITION TO OUR SOULS ON KRAMER KRAMER AND DISTRICT FOUR IN ALIGNMENT WITH OUR PRIORITY NETWORK.

UH, COLLEAGUES, THE CONSENT AGENDA IS ITEMS ONE THROUGH EIGHT.

UH, ITEM NUMBER FIVE HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN.

IS THERE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA? SO MAKES THE MOTION COUNSELOR PULL A SECOND.

ANY DISCUSSION ON THE CONSENT AGENDA ANNOUNCEMENT BREAKFASTS ARE WE'RE APPROVING A VARIETY OF IMPORTANT ITEMS, UH, ON THIS AGENDA.

I DO WANT TO MENTION, UH, MY APPRECIATION THAT THEY'RE IN, UH, LAND ON KRAMER LANE, UH, NORTH LAMAR, I'M UNDER PROJECT CONNECTED A PLACE WHERE WE HAVE REALLY, UM, RAPID TRANSIT.

UM, AND, AND I THINK THAT THIS WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE, UH, PEOPLE AT A VARIETY OF INCOMES, ESPECIALLY WORKING CLASS PEOPLE, BEING ABLE TO ACCESS, UH, THE TRANSIT THAT WE BUILD OUT IN THIS CITY LONGTERM.

SO IT'S, IT'S GREAT TO SEE OUR HOUSING ACQUISITION ACQUISITION.

OH, THERE'S A LAND ACQUISITION ALREADY BEGINNING, UH, NEAR THE PROJECT CONNECT LINES.

UH, THEN WE ALSO, UM, ARE, UH, HELPING FUND, UH, SPENDING OUT RUTLAND, WHICH, UM, I KNOW THAT THERE WAS THIS PROJECT HERE IN DISTRICT FOUR, AS WELL AS PROJECT IN DISTRICT NINE THAT, UH, STRUGGLED WITH TDH.

DA'S STRANGE, UH, UH, NEW RULES ON THAT WE'RE MAKING HOW BUILDING HOUSING FOR EXPERIENCED FOLKS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS, MORE DIFFICULT.

UH, I'M GLAD THAT AT LEAST THIS PART IN DISTRICT FOUR IS, IS STILL ABLE TO GET THROUGH AND GET DONE ALONGSIDE, UH, CARA'S HOUSE.

UH, AND THIS, THIS PROJECT WILL PROVIDE AT LEAST A HUNDRED CONTINUUM OF CARE UNITS.

UH, SO OVER ITS LIFETIME, WE KNOW IT WILL HELP HUNDREDS OF FOLKS, UH, GET OFF THE STREETS AND INTO AND INTO HOUSING AND IT JUST STABILITY.

SO IT'S A LOT OF TIMES, AGAIN, I I'M, I LIKE TO TALK ON HFC AGENDA SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE IT'S ALWAYS SO UNANIMOUS AND SO CONSENTED SO QUICK, BUT IT'S WHERE WE UNANIMOUSLY ARE DOING SUCH IMPORTANT WORK.

UM, LARGELY IN PART, THANKS TO THE HOUSING BOND INVESTMENT THAT THIS COUNCIL SUPPORTED IN THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT IN, UH, 2018.

UM, SO THERE'S OTHER PROJECTS I THINK ON SOUTH LAMAR AND OTHER THINGS ON THE AGENDA, BUT JUST WANTED TO CALL OUT THOSE IMPORTANT PIECES IN DISTRICT FOUR TODAY.

THAT'S RIGHT.

UM, MARY, YOU KNOW, WE, UH, WE MADE A COMMITMENT YEARS BACK THAT WE WERE GOING TO START BUILDING AFFORDABLE UNITS THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF AUSTIN, ESPECIALLY IN HIGH OPPORTUNITY AREAS.

AND WE'RE KEEPING OUR COMMITMENT WITH THESE PURCHASES OF PROPERTY RIGHT NOW AND BUILDING AFFORDABLE
