OH, YES, I, UM, I OKAY.

YOU'RE CALLING IN, SO, OKAY.

YOU VOTE? YES.

AND JADA SPOLETO, I CANNOT SEE YOU EITHER HOLD THAT.

I WAS JUST GOING TO ASK, CAUSE I ACTUALLY WAIVED EARLY, EARLY ON AND I FIGURED YOU CAN'T SEE ME.

SO THIS IS ALWAYS A STRUGGLE FOR SOME REASON.

I DON'T EVER HAVE ISSUES EXCEPT CISCO AT PLANNING COMMISSION, BUT I'M HOLDING UP GREEN AND I'M GONNA SEE IF I CAN GET A STRONGER CONNECTION.

OKAY.

SO WE'VE GOT A UNANIMOUS APPROVAL OF THE, UM, INCENTIVE AGENDA, WHICH INCLUDES THE OCTOBER 13TH MINUTES.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

SO NOW, UH, WE HAVE AN ITEM FOR DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT AND I GUESS A LITTLE HELP HERE, ANDREW.

I'M NOT SURE.

UM, THERE, IF THEY WANT TO, WHO IS, UH, WHO IS IN, UM, I GUESS STAFF IS WANTING TO POSTPONE THIS SURE.

COMMISSION.

YES, THAT'S CORRECT.

STAFF HAS REQUESTED, I BELIEVE THE APPLICANT A DATE SPECIFIC.

I'M NOT SURE.

ALL RIGHT.

SO LET'S, LET'S GO AHEAD.

UH, SO WE'RE GOING TO GO IN AND DISCUSS THIS

[Items B9 & B10]

DISCUSSION POSTPONEMENT FOR ITEM B NINE AND B 10.

AND, UH, JUST A REMINDER, WE'RE JUST GOING TO HEAR THE MERITS OF THE POSTPONEMENT AND NOT DELVE INTO ANY MERITS OF THE CASE.

AND, UH, SO STAFF, DO I GUESS NO INTRODUCTION HERE.

SO WE'RE JUST GOING TO HEAR FROM THE APPLICANT THEN, UH, QUICKLY FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES.

UH, CAN YOU, UH, GO AHEAD AND DISCUSS THE, UH, UH, WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR? SURE.

THIS IS RICHARD SETTLES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY? YES, I CAN HEAR YOU.

OKAY.

UM, MY NAME'S RICHARD SETTLE.

I'M HERE ON BEHALF OF THE APPLICANT AND THIS IS STATESMAN A REDEVELOPMENT BUD, AND THE REASON IT'S ACTUALLY A BED AMENDMENT TO AN EXISTING PUD AND THE RE THE WHOLE REASON FOR DOING IT IS WE'RE TRYING TO, UM, WE'RE TRYING TO IMPLEMENT THE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAN WITHOUT HAVING THE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAN IMPLEMENTING PLAN IN PLACE.

SO IT'S A COMPLEX, COMPLICATED CASE WE HAD WE'VE RECENTLY TURNED IN A SECOND ROUND OF COMMENTS TO STAFF COMMENTS, AND IT'S, LIKE I SAID, IT'S VERY COMPLICATED, BUT WE WERE A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED TO SEE THAT THE STAFF WAS RECOMMENDING AN INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT, BECAUSE THAT MEANS THAT WE'RE PROBABLY LOOKING SOMEWHERE OUT PAST THE END OF THE YEAR.

I'VE SINCE TALKED TO THE STAFF AND TO DERRY.

AND IT'S, I THINK IT'S A MATTER OF, OF NOTIFICATION ISSUES.

AND, UH, JERRY CONVINCED ME THAT WE NEED TO HAVE NOTIFICATION GO OUT AGAIN ON THIS, BECAUSE IT'S BEEN SITTING AROUND FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF, BUT I WANTED TO AT LEAST GET THE CONVERSATION GOING AND AT LEAST GET SOME DIRECTION AS TO THE LOWER OR THE, THE OTHER, THIS IS GOING TO HAVE TO GO TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL BOARD.

YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO WANT TO SEE IT BEFORE THE ENVIRONMENTAL, SEE IT, BEFORE IT COMES TO YOU BY CODE, IT HAS TO GO TO THAT JOINT, SMALL AREA PLANNING COMMITTEE.

WE'D LIKE FOR THAT TO BE SCHEDULED, WHAT WE NEED IS SOME, SOME TRACTION AND SOME ENCOURAGEMENT THAT WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO START HEARING PROCESS.

[00:20:01]

OTHERWISE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PULL THE NEW YEAR BUTTON UNDER 25 TO EIGHT OR WHATEVER IT IS, TWO 82, WHERE WE DEMAND A MEETING AND IT WON'T BE WRITTEN.

SO WHAT WE'RE ASKING FOR IS SOME ENCOURAGEMENT.

IF IT CAN'T BE AN INDEFINITE, I MEAN, IF IT HAS TO BE AN INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT TO DO NOTICE, I UNDERSTAND THAT, I GUESS WE COULD ALSO PAY FOR NOTICE IF WE COULD GO SOONER OR, UM, I JUST WANT TO SEE WHAT FOR PERMISSION AND THAT'S MY TWO MINUTES.

SO FOR THIS ITEM, UH, UM, UM, MR. SETTLE, DO YOU HAVE ANYBODY ELSE THAT YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO THIS SIDE? NO, I FIGURED Y'ALL HAD A LONG ENOUGH NIGHT.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LINE THEM UP.

AND THEN I'M NOT A PLAYER, I GUESS, ON THE OPPOSITION TO THIS WOULD BE FROM STAFF.

SO, UH, COMMISSIONERS, SHOULD WE HEAR FROM STAFF ON WHAT THEY PROPOSE, UM, WHO DO WE HAVE THAT CAN SPEAK TO THIS ITEM MEMBERS? THIS IS JERRY AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

UM, THE REASON WAS THIS WAS AN FOR IN-DEPTH.

THE POSTPONEMENT IS THE CODE WILL EXPIRE THE CASE UNLESS IT HAS ACTION EVERY HUNDRED 80 DAYS.

SO WE'RE HERE FOR, FOR, UM, MR. AVERY'S THOSE TO KEEP THE CASE ALIVE.

UM, WE ARE NOT AT A POINT YET WHERE WE CAN, UM, EITHER RECOMMEND OR NOT RECOMMEND THE, UH, THE PUD APPLICATION.

UH, BUT MR. CELLO'S, RIGHT, THE CASE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR, UM, OVER A YEAR NOW.

UM, THERE'S A LOT OF BACK AND FORTH.

THERE'S A LOT OF MOVING PARTS ON THIS CASE BESIDES OBVIOUSLY A VERY IMPORTANT, UM, SITE TO THE CITY.

IT'S A VERY PROMINENT LOCATION, UM, AT TYRUS IN THE RIVER.

UM, I HAVE SPOKE WITH MR. EARLIER TODAY AND, UM, I DO AGREE WITH HIM THAT THE CASE NEEDS TO GET A MOVE ON.

UM, IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR TOO LONG.

SO RIGHT NOW, THE BALL'S IN OUR COURT, THEY, THEY DID RESPOND TO, UM, OUR SECOND STAFF REPORT ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO.

AND SO SHORTLY WE'LL BE GETTING THEM OUR RESPONSE TO THEIR, UM, UH, RESPONSE TO OUR ORIGINAL COMMENTS.

UM, AND, BUT I WAS COMMITTED TO DOING IS JUST SETTING UP MEETINGS WITH THE DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS FACILITATED BY, UH, MYSELF AND THE CASE MANAGER TO TRY AND GET, UH, SOME OF THE ISSUES OF STANDING THAT ARE RESOLVED.

UM, AND TO GO AHEAD AND TRY AND GET THE CASE SCHEDULED FOR THE COMMISSIONS THAT MR. SUTTLE MENTIONED, UM, AS THOSE THINGS, UM, AS THOSE ISSUES, UM, GET TO A POINT THAT THEY'RE READY.

SO MAYBE WE CAN GO THE ENVIRONMENTAL BOARD, UM, SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.

UM, AND THEN UNDER THE, THE, UH, SOUTH CENTRAL WATERFALL OF THE SWAB, UH, SCHWAB AS WELL AS THE SUB COMMITTEE.

UM, SO WE'RE GOING TO TRY AND PUSH ON THE PEDAL A LITTLE BIT ON THIS ONE AND GET IT MOVING.

UH, WE'RE JUST NOT, I JUST CAN'T COMMIT RIGHT NOW.

THERE'S TOO MANY OUTSTANDING ISSUES TO COMMIT TO A DATE, BUT I DO COMMIT TO, UM, UM, GETTING THE CASE BACK ON TRACK.

OKAY.

UM, I WOULDN'T THINK WE HAVE ANY OTHER, UH, UH, SPEAKERS ON THIS, UH, THAT IS ANYBODY ELSE OUT THERE TO SPEAK TO THIS POSTPONEMENT.

SO I GUESS WE'RE GOING TO, LET'S GO AND MOVE INTO QUESTIONS ON THIS ONE.

UM, COMMISSIONERS ARE STANDARD, UH, COMMISSIONERS, AND YOU GOT FIVE MINUTES TO ASK QUESTIONS OF, UH, UH, THE OR STAFF.

DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? SURE.

COMMISSION LIAISON.

AND FOR, SO I HAVE MR. RUSSELL FRASER ON THE LINE, HE HAD SPOKEN, UH, HE HAD SIGNED UP IN CASE THE ITEM WAS GOING TO BE PULLED FOR DISCUSSION.

UM, BUT IF HE WISHES TO SPEAK ON THE POSTPONEMENT.

OH YEAH.

SO I SEE HERE, UH, SPEAKING SIGNED UP TO SPEAK AGAINST, UH, SO IS MR. FRASIER, DO YOU WISH TO SPEAK, UM, THE POSTPONEMENT? YES.

JUST A FEW WORDS.

THANK YOU.

MY GUY, UM, I RESIDE IN THE SOUTH CITY, SOUTH RIVER CITY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE GREATER SOUTH RIVER CITY COMBINED NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN.

WE'RE SORT OF THE GROUND ZERO NEIGHBORHOOD, UH, FOR IMPACT, UH, DUE TO THIS DEVELOPMENT.

UM, AND I JUST WANT TO REMIND, UH, UH, THE COMMISSION THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, LETTER IN A LETTER LAST YEAR, WE URGE

[00:25:01]

COUNCIL, UM, AND THE COMMISSION THAT THE QUOTE, THE FINANCIAL AND GOVERNANCE TOOLS MUST BE IN PLACE TO ENSURE THE VASTLY INCREASED DEVELOPMENT, ENTITLEMENTS, RESOLVING COMMUNITY BENEFITS.

AND, UH, ALSO I'D LIKE TO REMIND THE COMMISSION THAT THE SOUTH CENTRAL COALITION AND NEIGHBORHOODS SECTOR SEVEN, THAT'S WHERE OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS SECTOR SEVEN ON AND SO ON SILK OR WHATNOT, UM, RESOLUTION, UH, TO THE COMMISSION AND COUNCIL, BUT PLANNING COMMISSION DEFER ANY ACTION ON ANY COMMANDMENT REQUESTS FOR THREE OH FIVE SOUTH CONFERENCE PROJECT UNTIL REGULATION AND FINANCIAL PLANS ARE COMPLETED BY THE CITY COUNCIL.

UM, SO, UH, THAT'S, THOSE ARE TWO PREVIOUS RESOLUTIONS AND LETTERS THAT HAD BEEN SENT.

ALSO, I'D LIKE TO MENTION THAT, UM, UH, WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO INCLUDE A TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS BEFORE ANY, UH, CONSIDERATIONS ARE MADE FOR THESE ZONING CHANGE AND, UH, FURTHER ENTITLEMENTS? OKAY.

UH, SO MR. FRAZIER, WE'RE JUST SPEAKING TO THE, UH, YOU KNOW, TO THE POSTPONEMENT ONLY, NOT THE MERITS OF THE CASE.

SO THAT'S ALL WE'RE HERE TO TALK ABOUT RIGHT NOW.

OKAY.

SO, UH, DID I HEAR, UH, MR. RUSSELL, THE NUMERATED, SOME OF THE, UH, THE NEXT STEPS IS, CAN I ASK IF TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS COULD BE INCLUDED IN THOSE, WHICH I THINK THEN THE MERIT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I, I THINK THAT'S MORE, UM, OUTSIDE OF WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW, SO WE'RE JUST ON WHAT, YOU KNOW, TO TAKE THIS UP NOW OR POSTPONE IT.

SO, UM, OKAY, WELL, THANK YOU.

UH, AND, UH, SO NOW I GUESS, LOOK, I THINK THAT'S ALL THE SPEAKERS, UM, SITTING ON MY LIST, SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND MOVE INTO QUESTIONS.

DO, UH, ANY OF THE COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT OR STAFF OR MR. FRASER, UH, COMMISSIONER YANNIS.

POLITO.

OKAY.

THAT MEANS YOU CAN SEE ME.

YES, I CAN.

I JUST HAD A BRIEF QUESTION.

I HOPE FOR STAFF, UM, IF THEY COULD SPEAK TO THE STATUS OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SOUTH CENTRAL, UH, WATERFRONT VISION FRAMEWORK AND WHERE THAT STANDS AND WHAT IMPLICATIONS THAT MAY HAVE, UM, FOR THIS CASE, NOT THE MERITS, BUT JUST POSTPONEMENT AND TIMELINE.

THIS IS JERRY WEST OVEN.

UM, THE IMPLEMENTATION, THE SOUTH CENTRAL WATER COMPONENT OBVIOUSLY HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE COUNCIL.

UM, WHAT IS NOT DONE YET IS THE RIGHT LANE PLAN THAT GOES WITH IT, UH, THAT RAY LANE PLAN WASN'T BEING IMPLEMENTED AS A PART OF THE, UM, CODE REWRITE, WHICH OF COURSE IS, UM, TIED UP IN A LAWSUIT RIGHT NOW.

SO WE ARE STILL WORKING ON, UM, WHAT FORM THE, THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PLAN WOULD TAKE, UH, PENDING THE, UM, THE, OF COURSE DECISION ON THE CODE TO BE RIGHT.

IF I COULD ADD QUICKLY TO, UM, THERE IS A TRAFFIC IMPACT ANALYSIS TO GO WITH THIS CASE TO ADDRESS THE SPEAKER'S CONSENT.

UM, THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS STILL UNDER REVIEW ASK IF THE, AS A FOLLOWUP TO THAT, IF THE, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE VISION FRAMEWORK WAS I'M SORRY, THE REGULATING PLAN ADJUSTMENTS WERE TO BE WRAPPED UP IN THE COMPREHENSIVE REWRITE, BUT IS THERE ANYTHING PRECLUDING THE COUNCIL FROM TAKING ACTION TO, UH, AMANDA ABOUT REGULATING PLAN OR ADOPT IT ACCORDINGLY? UM, AS A STANDALONE ITEM, UM, I CAN'T GET INTO TOO MUCH LEGAL DETAIL ONE BECAUSE I'M NOT A LAWYER AND TWO WHERE WE'RE NOT IN THE EXECUTIVE SESSION, BUT, UM, A PART OF THE ISSUE OR PART OF THE CONCERN DOES HAVE TO DO WITH THE ISSUES THAT WERE RAISED IN THE LAWSUIT WITH REGARD TO HOW CODE AMENDMENTS ARE HANDLED, UM, WOULD APPLY TO, UM, THE ADOPTION OF A NEW REGULATING PLAN.

SO ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONER.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER, UH, COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS? YEAH.

UM, UH, OKAY, SO I'M, I DID SEE HERE THERE'S ONE OTHER SPEAKER AND, UH, I MISTOOK, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A STAFF.

IT IS NOT.

SO IS THERE A WINDY TIME PRICE ON THE LINE?

[00:30:02]

UH, STAR SIX TO UNMUTE.

OKAY.

SO I THINK THEY HOPEFULLY DID NOT WANT TO SPEAK TO THE POSTPONEMENT.

OKAY.

SO, UH, I GUESS THIS ONE WE'RE NOW GOING TO, UH, NEED TO, UH, VOTE ON AND DO I HAVE A MOTION ON THE POSTPONEMENT, UH, COMMISSIONER AZAR MAKE A MOTION.

OKAY.

DO I HAVE A SECOND? UH, UH, CAUSE AT THE SECOND BY COMMISSIONER, LEON IS POLITA SO, UM, UH, LET'S GO AHEAD AND, OH, DO WE HAVE ANY DISCUSSION ON THIS ONE? IF I CAN JUST SPEAK? I THINK I, IF I COULD JUST SPEAK TO THE MOTION, I JUST WANT TO SAY, ARE YOU HERE? UM, MR. S UH, I FORGOT THE NAME, BUT ESSENTIALLY I HEAR THE CONCERN ON POSTPONING IT INDEFINITELY.

I REALLY HOPE THAT STAFF THINKS OF IT OUT AND THEN INFORM DRESSED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

AND WE CAN EXPEDITE THIS CONSIDERING THAT THEY HAVE BEEN READING AND HAVE SHOWN PATIENTS.

SO I APPRECIATE THEIR PATIENTS AND ASK FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE AND HOPEFULLY STAFF AND HELP US RESOLVE THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

OKAY.

ANY COMMISSIONERS, UH, AGAINST, UH, HEARING NONE, UH, COMMISSIONER YANEZ, PALITO, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK TO YOUR SECOND? UH, I WOULD LOVE TO DO SOME FOLLOW-UP WORK TO SEE HOW THIS CAN BE MOVED ALONG.

UM, BUT ALSO VERY CURIOUS ABOUT THE REGULATING PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH THE WATERFRONT, UH, VISION FRAMEWORK.

UM, BECAUSE I DO THINK THAT THAT'S, UH, THAT'S POTENTIALLY CHANGES TO THE CODE THAT COULD BE MADE WITHOUT, UM, GETTING INTO A LAWSUIT TERRITORY.

SO I, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HOW THAT CAN PLAY OUT AND HOW WE CAN GET THIS MOVING ALONG.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UH, WELL, LET'S GO AHEAD AND VOTE ON THE MOTION, UH, FOR, UM, INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT AS REQUESTED BY STAFF.

UM, UH, THE MOTION MADE BY COMMISSIONER SECONDED BY COMMISSIONER IS TOLEDO.

UH, GO AHEAD AND DOES IN FAVOR AND, UH, OKAY.

IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING 5% OF THE UNIT AT AN AFFORDABLE RATE THAT IS SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW WHAT IS REQUIRED BY CODE THE DEVELOPER IS ALSO COMMITTING TO PROVIDE ALL OF THE ONSITE AFFORDABLE UNITS WITH A MIX OF AFFORDABLE UNIT, BUT DISPROPORTIONATE TO THE UNIT MIX OF THE PROJECT.

THESE AFFORDABLE HOUSING REQUIREMENTS WILL BE MEMORIALIZED.

YES, PRIVATE RESTRICT HIS COVENANT WITH A THIRD PARTY PRIOR TO THE CASE BEING PRESENTED AT CITY COUNCIL.

AND WITH THAT, I'M HAPPY TO PAUSE AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND, UH, NEXT WE HAVE SPEAKING NEUTRAL, UH, IS MARIO KENTU.

ARE YOU ON THE LINE, UH, STAR SIX TO UNMUTE BY MARIO CANTU? YES, SIR.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

WE CAN HEAR YOU.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE,

[00:40:02]

HOW LONG DO I HAVE ON TIME? UH, OH YES, YOU HAVE, UH, THREE, UH, FIVE MINUTES.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

MY NAME IS MARIO CANTU.

I'M WITH THE SOUTH CONGRESS CONTACT TEAM, UH, CHAIR OF THE CONTACT TEAM.

AND, UH, JUST WANT TO SAY, UM, TO TONIGHT I'VE NOTICED THERE'S A LOT OF NEW FACES ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION, AND I WANT TO THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF Y'ALL FOR YOUR SERVICE ALSO WANT TO THANK, UH, FIRST RESPONDERS, HEALTHCARE WORKERS THAT ARE STILL IN ESSENTIAL WORKERS THAT ARE STILL ON THE FRONT LINES AND DOING THINGS RELATED TO COVID-19.

UH, WITH THAT SAID, I JUST WANT TO BRING BACK THE SURFACE A LITTLE BIT, THAT WE ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS GOING ON WITH COVID-19 IN REGARDS TO INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE HAVING A HARD TIME PAYING RENT.

UH, THEY'RE HAVING TO LIVE HOUR BY HOUR, DAY TO DAY, UH, WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD AND RENT.

UH, AND WE, WE RECOGNIZE THAT AS A CONTACT TEAM, YOU KNOW, WE SEE IT ON TV, WE HEAR ABOUT IT.

WE ENCOUNTER PEOPLE ABOUT IT.

AND EVEN BEFORE COVID-19 SO HAD THESE PROBLEMS GOING ON AND IT'S NOTHING NEW, IT'S JUST, UH, IT'S JUST COMPOUNDED MORE.

AND IT'S BEEN BROUGHT TO THE SURFACE MORE WITH COVID-19, WHICH, UH, HAS PRESENTED THE PROBLEMS THAT WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE.

AND WE ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT, AND AS A CONTACT TEAM, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE STRIVING TO DO WHEN IT COMES TO AFFORDABILITY AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

UH, WE RECOGNIZE THAT, UH, AT THE 80% MFI, YOU KNOW, TARGET SOMEBODY THAT'S MAKING AN 80 TO $90,000 RANGE.

UH, SO, YOU KNOW, WE LOOK AT THE REALLY LOWER PERCENTAGES AT 50% TO 60% NFI.

AND JUST SO YOU KNOW, THAT THE NEIGHBOR NEXT DOOR TO THIS PROJECT, UH, WAS THE LAST ONE THAT WE WORKED WITH.

UH, THEY GAVE 50% MFI AND 60% MFI FIVE AND FIVE, A TOTAL OF 10 SPLIT.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE'RE, WE'RE CONTINUING TO WORKING WITH THE DRAENOR GROUP, UH, AMANDA AND HER TEAM.

IT'S A REALLY GOOD TEAM.

WE'VE BEEN IN CONVERSATIONS WITH THEM.

WE APPRECIATE THEIR TIME AND THEIR HELP, AND WE CONTINUE TO STRIVE TO DO THAT.

BUT ANOTHER PROBLEM IS THE TRAFFIC.

UH, YOU KNOW, BASICALLY YOU'RE, YOU'RE TAKING LIKE HALF OF BARTON CREEK MALL AND YOU'RE SMASHING IT ALL TOGETHER.

AND JUST ONE TOE AREA OF THE INDUSTRIAL, UH, PART OF SOUTH CONGRESS WITH MANY PEOPLE IN MANY CARS.

SO, UH, THAT THAT'S A PROBLEM.

AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T HAVE BIGGER PROBLEMS AS THINGS PROGRESS WITH THE, ANY ONE OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS THAT ARE BEING KIND OF PUSHED INTO THIS ONE AREA.

SO THE TIA IS, UM, WE'RE STILL IN TALKING WITH THE DRAENOR GROUP ABOUT THAT AND WHEN IT COMES TO TRAFFIC.

SO, UH, OTHER THINGS I'VE WANTED TO MENTION IS THAT WE DID TALK TO THEM ABOUT THE ADULT WARRANTY BUSINESSES, THAT THOSE ARE PART OF THE ZONING THINGS THAT, THAT COME WITH THIS ZONING, UH, ALTERNATIVE FINANCIAL SERVICES THAT INCLUDES PAYDAY LOANS, DELBANCO SERVICES AND OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT THAT WE WOULD NOT LIKE TO HAVE THAT IMPLEMENTED WITH THE ZONING.

UM, AND THEN ALSO WHAT ALSO CAME TO SURFACE WAS THE RENT SUCH AS SECURITY AMENITIES, PARKING, ET CETERA.

SO WHAT HAPPENS IS A LOT OF TIMES WHEN THESE INDIVIDUALS, UM, GO IN AND RENT ONE OF THESE CONDOS OR UNITS, THEY'RE PLAGUED BY A LOT OF THESE, UH, UH, RENTAL FEES AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

SO WE WERE ALSO TALKING WITH THEM ABOUT THAT AND MAYBE HOPEFULLY KIND OF WORKING SOME THINGS OUT.

UH, SO THAT'S BEEN A VERY, VERY WELL TAKEN UPON THE TURNER GROUP AND AMANDA AND THEM.

AND I THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT IT.

UM, AFFORDABILITY IS OUR BIGGEST THING.

UH, YOU KNOW, WE'RE STRIVING TO, TO GET THE NUMBERS WHERE WE REALLY, REALLY NEED THEM BECAUSE, UH, AGAIN, YOU KNOW, SINGLE MOM WITH A CHILD, UH, MOM AND DAD, JUST TO FOLLOW YOURSELF, HAVING PROBLEMS NOWADAYS.

AND, UH, YOU KNOW, THAT WE LOST A LOT OF HOUSING STOCK IN THE PAST, IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA.

AND, YOU KNOW, I THINK WE NEED TO GET BETTER AND BETTER WHEN IT COMES TO THIS, UH, HOUSING STOCK OF AFFORDABILITY FOR THE FUTURE, BECAUSE, UH, YOU KNOW, COVID-19 IS GOING TO PRODUCE SOME, SOME THINGS THAT WE PROBABLY DON'T WANT TO SEE, BUT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH NO MATTER WHAT, WHEN IT COMES TO INDIVIDUALS LOSING THEIR HOMES AND WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO USE THIS LOW AFFORDABILITY WHEN IT COMES TO THESE NUMBERS AND HOPEFULLY PUTTING SOME NEW INDIVIDUALS IN MOST LOCATIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. KENTU.

AND SO THAT CONCLUDES OUR SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM.

AND SO WE'LL GO INTO A PLANNING COMMITTEE, I GUESS WE'RE GONNA CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING IS THE FIRST STEP, UH, SHALL I HAVE A FUNCTION? YES.

REBUTTAL PLACE.

OH, THANK YOU.

I ALMOST MISS THAT.

UH, APPLICANT REVITAL.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

UH,

[00:45:01]

THAT WOULD BE A AMANDA S FOUR OR IF YOU'RE STILL ON THE LINE.

YES.

SURE.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE HER, BUT I'LL, UH, I WOULD JUST WANT TO START BY THANKING MARIO FOR TAKING THE TIME TO SIGN UP AND SPEAK.

WE'VE REALLY ENJOYED THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH THEM IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, HIM IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PLAYING CONTACT GAME.

I WOULD JUST ADDRESS A COUPLE OF THE POINTS, UH, IF THE COMMISSION AS WELL, WE HAVE BEEN WORKING AND STARTED THE PROCESS WITH AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT TO GO WITH, UM, TRAFFIC MITIGATION IN THE AREA THAT TIA AND TIA MITIGATIONS WERE DEFERRED TO THE TIME OF FLIGHT PLAN, GIVEN THE CURRENT CONDITIONS OF THE MARKET.

AND THEN, UH, MR. KENJI BROUGHT UP A WONDERFUL POINT ABOUT THE PARKING COSTS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

AND IT'S ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT I DIDN'T MENTION IS THAT IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING THE ON-SITE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AT A HIGH PERCENT AT 80% AND 5% AT 50%, THE DEVELOPER HAS ALSO AGREED TO REDUCE, UM, THIS WILL BE A PROJECT AS MOST ARE THESE DAYS WHERE PARKING SPACES ARE DECOUPLED AND RENTED SEPARATELY FROM A UNIT.

AND THAT THOSE PARKING SPACES WOULD BE THE FEES WOULD BE REDUCED PROPORTIONATELY TO THE REDUCTION IN, IN RENT, UM, BASED ON THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING COMPONENT.

THEN, UM, WITH THAT, I'M HAPPY AGAIN, TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND REALLY STATE THE COMMISSION ABILITY TO LET US FOR THEM.

OKAY.

UH, SO THAT, UH, DO I HAVE A MOTION TO CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING? I SEE, UH, UH, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER SECOND BY COMMISSIONER.

WAS THAT ANDERSON SECOND.

OKAY.

UH, SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND, UH, UH, IT'S GOING TO TAKE A VOTE ON THAT.

LET'S SEE YOUR GREEN AND COMMISSIONER CIGARETTES.

YES.

ALL RIGHT.

I'VE GOT IT.

ALL RIGHT, THANKS.

SO THAT'S UNANIMOUS 11 ZERO, AND NOW WE'LL GO INTO OUR, UH, ROUND ROBIN QUESTIONS.

UM, DO I HAVE A FIRST COMMISSIONER WITH, UH, A QUESTION ON THIS ITEM? ANYONE? OKAY.

SO DO I HAVE A MO OH, I SEE.

UH, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER.

DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION? OKAY.

UH, YEAH, I THINK IT'S FOR, UH, FOR MS. SWORE, UM, THE, UH, THE NEIGHBORHOOD CONTACT TEAM MENTIONED SOME PROHIBITED USES, UM, I THINK LIKE ADULTS ORIENTED BUSINESSES AND, UM, ALTERNATIVE LENDERS, UH, IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU'VE HAD DISCUSSIONS WITH THEM ABOUT AND IS THAT AGREEABLE TO YOU? YES, SIR.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ASKING THE QUESTION.

WHEN I STOPPED TALKING, I REALIZED I HADN'T BEEN ADDRESSED THAT POINT.

UM, WE ARE AMENABLE TO ALL OF THE USES THAT THE NEIGHBORHOOD CLAIM CONTACT TEAM HAS ASKED TO BE INCLUDED IN THIS.

I KNOW THEY SENT YOU A LETTER WITH THAT, AND IF IT'S THE WILL OF THE COMMISSION, WE ARE SUPPORTIVE OF ADDING THOSE PROJECTS.

THANKS.

UM, AND, UH, UH, FOR MR TO, UM, UH, I THINK YOU MENTIONED A DOVE ORIENTED BUSINESSES, ALTERNATIVE LENDERS, AND WAS THERE SOMETHING ELSE OUTDOOR, UH, ENTERTAINMENT? I THINK THAT WAS RIGHT.

DOES MARIO, DID YOU HAVE TO HEAR MY QUESTION? YES, SIR.

SO A DARK ADULT FOR TWO BUSINESSES, UH, ALTERNATIVE FINANCIAL SERVICES.

THIS INCLUDES PAYDAY LOANS, BAIL BOND SERVICES, AND OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT.

THANKS.

ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONER CENTER.

OKAY.

UH, ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS? UH, OKAY.

COMMISSIONER CONLEY.

UH, WHO DO YOU, UH, JUST LET US KNOW.

YOU WANT TO TALK? OKAY.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR, I GUESS, FOR BOTH, BUT I GUESS FOR AMANDA SWORE.

OKAY.

UM, I JUST WANTED TO, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, FIRST OF ALL, I THINK IT'S, YOU KNOW, IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT WE DON'T HAVE THE NEW LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE BECAUSE WITH THE NEW CODE, WE REALLY WOULDN'T HAVE A REQUIREMENT FOR MUCH MORE AFFORDABILITY ON THIS SITE, UM, AS PART OF NEW TEXTS.

SO IT'S REALLY SAD THAT WE'RE LOSING THAT AFFORDABILITY.

BUT MY QUESTION IS, UM, HAS THERE BEEN SOME CONVERSATION ABOUT, UH, TO ARRIVE AT THAT NUMBER OF, UH, 5% FOR 50? AND I WOULD JUST WANTED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT, WHAT, WHAT THE REASONING THERE WAS

[00:50:03]

ABSOLUTELY COMMISSIONER.

SO WE WE'VE BEEN WORKING FOR THE LAST, UH, I, ONE OF THE, IT'S PROBABLY BEEN A MONTH TO SIX WEEKS WITH THE CONTACT TEAM, REALLY SEEING WHAT LEVEL OF AFFORDABILITY THAT WE COULD GET TO.

AND WE HEARD THEM LOUD AND CLEAR THAT THEIR PREFERENCE IS TO GET TO THOSE LOWER LEVELS OF AFFORDABILITY.

WE LOOKED AT.

WAS THERE AN OPTION TO ADD MORE AFFORDABILITY AT AN 80% LEVEL, OR HAVE THE LEVEL OF AFFORDABILITY THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR THERE TO ACTUALLY BE ONE AND TWO BEDROOM UNITS AT THAT 50% MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME VERSUS JUST ONE BEDROOMS. AND SO THAT'S WHERE WE LANDED TO THAT.

WE'RE GETTING TO THAT 5% AT 50%, BUT ALLOWING US TO PROVIDE THE MIX OF UNITS FOR BOTH THE 5% AT 80% AND 5% AT 50% TO PROVIDE BOTH ONE AND TWO BEDROOMS UNITS AT THAT AFFORDABILITY LEVEL.

THANK YOU.

AND ONE MORE QUESTION, UH, WAS, UH, WAS THE POSSIBILITY OF, UH, 60% UNITS, UH, EVER PART OF THE DISCUSSION.

IT WAS A COMPONENT THAT WE TALKED ABOUT AT ONE POINT IN TIME, BUT WE DEFINITELY HEARD THE CONTACT TEAM THAT GETTING TO THAT 50% LEVEL WAS THEIR DESIRE AND TO REACH 5% AT 50%, THE OTHER 5% NEEDED TO REMAIN AT THE 80% THRESHOLD.

OKAY.

UM, YEAH, I THINK THAT'S IT.

I THINK THAT ANSWERS IT FOR NOW.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, CHAIR.

UH, COMMISSIONER CONLEY.

UM, AND IF THERE'S YES, COMMISSIONER ANDERSON, WE HAVE APPROVAL.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER ANDERSON MAKES A MOTION FOR APPROVAL OF, WOULD THAT BE STAFF RECOMMENDATION? OKAY.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND, SECOND, UH, UH, COMMISSIONER HEMPHILL, UH, FOR AN AMENDMENT.

OKAY.

UH, IN A MINUTE.

OKAY.

YES, AN AMENDMENT, UH, TO ADD, UH, PROHIBITED USES OF ADULT ORIENTED BUSINESSES, ALTERNATIVE FINANCIAL SERVICES, INCLUDING BAIL BONDS AND PETTY LENDERS.

AND, UH, AFTER ENTERTAINMENT, QUICK QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

WOULD THAT BE A, UH, HOW WOULD THAT BE DONE? THAT WOULD BE DONE THROUGH A CONDITIONAL OVERLAY.

THIS IS WENDY RHODES, THE CASE MANAGER.

SO I GUESS I'M HEARING THAT IS AN AMENDMENT.

DO WE HAVE A SECOND, UH, FOR THE AMENDMENT I WAS HERE A SECOND FROM COMISARY ON IS PALITO.

UH, DO WE WANT, UH, SO DISCUSSION, UH, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR PROPOSED AMENDMENT? UH, THANKS.

UM, I, UH, I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR THE, UM, ALL THE WORK THAT THIS, UH, NEIGHBORHOOD CONTACT TEAM HAS DONE.

THEY'VE REALLY WORKED IN GOOD FAITH ON A NUMBER OF, UH, PROPOSALS ALONG SOUTH CONGRESS AND WORK TO IMPROVE AFFORDABILITY.

AND, UH, AS THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE, I THINK, UM, THEY ARE IN A, IN A REALLY GOOD POSITION TO APPRECIATE THE CONCERNS OF NEIGHBORS AROUND CERTAIN SORTS OF BUSINESSES.

I KNOW WE HAVE SOME CONCERNS ABOUT ADDING CONDITIONAL OVERLAYS, BUT GIVEN WHERE WE ARE NOW WITH THE LAND, UH, CODE, UM, THIS IS THE WAY THAT WE CAN DO IT.

SO, UM, JUST TO RESPECT THE WISHES OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND UNDERSTANDING THAT THE APPLICANT HAS NO CONCERNS ABOUT THESE RESTRICTIONS, I, UH, WOULD OFFER IT UP.

OKAY.

UH, DO WE HAVE ANY ONE SPEAKING AGAINST THIS AMENDMENT COMMISSIONER ANDERSON? YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE GOOD IN IT.

I GET IT.

UM, IT'S JUST ANOTHER CONDITIONAL OVERLAY WAS JUST NASTY AND IT'S JUST A WHOLE NEW ZONING CATEGORY.

IT'S A WHOLE NOTHER THING THAT GETS STUCK IN OUR BOOKS.

AND IT'S JUST ANOTHER GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW DESPERATE WE ARE FOR A NEW LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE THAT HAD BETTER ZONING THAT ALREADY TOOK CARE OF THESE THINGS THAT ALREADY GOT RID OF THESE USES.

BUT HERE WE ARE STUCK WITH OUR ANTIQUE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE AND WE HAVE TO DO ALL THESE SILLY THINGS.

SO OF COURSE, I THINK IT HAS THE SUPPORT HERE, BUT IT'S JUST REALLY RIDICULOUS.

WE'RE STUCK IN THE PAST COMMISSIONER AGAIN, JUST POLITO.

DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK, UH, FOR THE ITEM? THAT'S SURE.

UM, I ACTUALLY THINK A CONDITIONAL OVERLAY CAN BE A USEFUL TOOL IN THIS MANNER, AND I WOULD LOVE TO BE EDUCATED BY COMMISSIONERS ANDERSON AND, UH, CONNOLLY ON HOW THE NEW LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE WOULD ACTUALLY ADDRESS THE AFFORDABILITY CONCERNS IN THIS.

NOT AT THIS TIME, WE CAN TALK ANOTHER TIME.

UM, BUT ALSO, UM, WHY IN PARTICULAR IT IS SO HONOROUS, TO ME, THIS ACTUALLY REPRESENTS, UH, YOU KNOW, A FORM OF

[00:55:01]

COMMUNITY PLANNING.

AND WHEN WE ALLOW BY RIGHT ENTITLEMENT, WE DON'T ACTUALLY GET TO D DISCUSS THE NUANCES OF WHAT WILL ACHIEVE MAXIMUM BENEFIT TO THE COMMUNITY.

IN ADDITION TO MAXIMUM RETURNS ON THE INVESTMENT, BECAUSE THIS IS A LARGE INCREASE IN ENTITLEMENTS TO VERTICAL MIXED USE.

IT'S A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF VALUE, AND WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO CAPTURE MORE.

UM, SO I THINK WE SHOULD USE THE TOOLS THAT WE HAVE AT HAND.

AND I THINK THAT CONDITIONAL OVERLAY IS APPROPRIATE IN THIS SITUATION.

ALL RIGHT.

COMMISSIONER SPEAKING AGAINST ANYONE ELSE WANT TO SPEAK FOR THIS ITEM? OKAY.

SO, UM, LET'S GO AHEAD AND PUT THIS TO A VOTE.

SO THIS IS AN AMENDMENT TO, UM, TO ADD A CONDITIONER CONDITIONAL OVERLAY, AND LET'S SAY, I'M GOING TO NEED, UM, CAN YOU COMMISSIONER SNYDER REPEAT THOSE, UH, THOSE ITEMS AGAIN THAT YOU WANT INCLUDED IN THE CO UH, RESTRICTIONS AGAINST ADULT ORIENTED BUSINESSES, ALTERNATIVE FINANCIAL SERVICES, INCLUDING BAIL BONDS AND PAYDAY LENDERS AND OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT.

UM, MAY I ASK ONE QUESTION FOR CLARIFICATION? UH, YES, GO AHEAD.

UH, FOR CLARIFICATION.

YEAH.

WHAT IS, UH, OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT? HOW IS OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT EXACTLY DEFINED? I'M SORRY.

I'M, I'M NEW TO THIS.

COULD WE GET IT EXPLANATION? YEAH.

STAFF, CAN YOU QUICKLY EXPLAIN OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT? HOW IT'S DEFINED IN THE CODE? YES.

JUST A MOMENT.

I'LL, I'LL LOOK UP MY, UH, CLASSIFICATION AND THE DESCRIPTION IN THERE.

READ IT FROM THE CODE BASE MOMENT.

RIGHT? TUITION ASSISTANCE, JERRY WEST.

I HAVEN'T, UM, I HAVEN'T HAD THAT RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME IF YOU'D LIKE I COULD SPEAK TO IT VERY QUICKLY BEFORE PROBABLY BEFORE WENDY COULD LOOK IT UP.

SORRY.

WHEN HE, UH, AFTER THE FAMOUS TO FIND HIS, UH, PREDOMINANTLY EXPECTED TO USE CONDUCTED IN AN OPEN PARTIALLY ENCLOSED OR SCREEN FACILITIES, EXAMPLES INCLUDE SPORTS, ARENAS, RACING FACILITIES, AND AMUSEMENT PARKS, THE WAY IT'S DEFINED IN THE CODE.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UH, ON THAT, UH, AMENDMENT, LET'S GO AHEAD AND, UH, TAKE A VOTE.

UH, CAN I SEE THOSE IN FAVOR ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT.

OKAY.

SO WE HAVE EIGHT IN FAVOR, UH, THOSE VERDE AGAINST, OH, I'M SO SORRY.

ONE, TWO.

I HAVE A COMMISSIONER HENDERSON, COMMISSIONER THOMPSON, UH, VOTING AGAINST AND ABSTAINING, UH, COMMISSIONER CONLEY.

DID I, I MIGHT'VE MISSED YOUR VOTE.

YOU HAVE STATE.

OKAY, SO YOU'RE ONE.

OKAY.

SO WE HAVE EIGHT, FOUR, TWO AGAINST, AND ONE ABSTAINING.

UH, SO THAT MOTION PASSES, UH, THAT AMENDMENT PASSES.

NOW WE NEED TO VOTE ON THE MAIN, UH, MOTION THAT WAS, UH, COMMISSIONER ANDERSON AND WHO IS THE SECOND? AYE.

WHAT'S THE SECOND TO THE MAIN MOTION.

WAS THAT? THAT WAS FIVE.

YES.

THANK YOU.

UH, OKAY.

SO SECOND ADVICE.

YOU'RE HELPFUL.

AND SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND, UH, WE DID NOT, DO WE HAVE ANY, WE DID NOT, UH, HAVE DISCUSSION ON THAT ITEM.

DO WE NEED ANY DISCUSSION ON THIS ITEM? I'D LIKE TO SPEAK TO HER BRIEFLY.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SURE.

SO THIS IS THE CASE RIGHT ON CONGRESS.

IT MAKES A WHOLE LOT OF SENSE, A HUNDRED PERCENT AGREE WITH COMMISSIONER CONNOLLY.

IT'D BE AMAZING IF WE HAD A LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE THAT DIDN'T REQUIRE SO MUCH PARKING IT'S, IT'S REALLY GREAT AND WONDERFUL TO STORE A BUNCH OF WHOLE LOT OF VEHICLES THERE.

IT DOES NOT ALLOW ANYWHERE NEAR THE AMOUNT OF HOUSING THAT WE COULD GET THERE, WHICH DEFINITELY COSTS US A LOT OF MARKET RATE UNITS AND AFFORDABLE UNITS.

UM, YOU KNOW, THAT'D BE FINE DANDY IF WE HAD ANYWHERE NEAR ENOUGH HOUSING UNITS ON THE GROUND, BUT WE DON'T.

AND SO WE'RE ALWAYS GOING TO BE KIND OF CATCH UP.

WE'RE GETTING FURTHER AND FURTHER BEHIND AVERAGE COST OF HOUSING IS RISING.

DISPLACEMENT IS SKYROCKETING, AND WE ARE TAKING TINY LITTLE STEPS HERE AND THERE TO ADD MORE HOUSING THAN WE DO EVEN DO LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE.

SO HERE WE ARE STUCK WITH OUR TERRIBLE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE.

THE NEXT IS BEG FOR HOUSING, AND IT'S JUST FAILING US MORE AND MORE BY THE DAY.

SO

[01:00:01]

HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET OUR ACT TOGETHER AND FIX IT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UH, COMMISSIONERS THAT WILL BE VOTING AGAINST THE ONE TO SPEAK, UH, COMMISSIONER AZHAR, I'M JUST GOING TO SPEAK NEUTRAL AND REALLY COMMON.

I JUST WISH AT SOME POINT, STAFF CAN COME BACK TO PLANNING COMMISSION WHERE THEY EMAIL OR AS A FOUNDATION WHO HELP US UNDERSTAND THE OVER THE ISSUE HAS NOT GONE UP MULTIPLE TIMES.

AND WE JUST NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS, WHAT IS STAFF WANTING US DOING HOUSING COUNCIL, WANTING US TO TAKE ON ALL THESE.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

UH, COMMISSIONER HIPPO.

UH, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR SECOND, MR. HEMPHILL? DO YOU WANT TO STICK TO YOUR SECOND, BUT NOTHING YOUR INTEREST IN HAND AND SAID ALREADY, IT'S JUST, UM, HOUSING ON A W ON A TRANSIT CORRIDOR.

IT MAKES SENSE.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER, UH, COMMISSIONER SPEAKING AGAINST, UH, COMMISSIONER YONIS, TOLEDO, I'M ALSO SPEAKING CLOSER TO NEUTRAL THAN AGAINST, BUT I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO, TO QUALIFY A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAID, UM, BECAUSE THE COST OF HOUSING DOESN'T SIMPLY HAVE TO DO WITH THE SUPPLY OF THE UNITS ON THE GROUND.

I'M GOING TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THAT AGAIN, AND JUST REMIND FOLKS THAT THE MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA OF AUSTIN IS MUCH LOWER, ABOUT $30,000 LOWER THAN THE MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME FOR THE REST OF THE CITY.

SO WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT 50%, MFI, 80% MFI, 80% OF MFI IS WAY OUT OF REACH FOR ANYONE WHO IS STRUGGLING TO PAY RENT RIGHT NOW.

AND, UM, THIS IS A MOVING TARGET BECAUSE WHEN WE CHOOSE DENSITY AND WE DON'T HAVE, YOU KNOW, I'D LOVE TO SEE COST BENEFIT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT PARKING AND LET'S TALK ABOUT MORE EQUITABLE TRANSIT.

BUT RIGHT NOW, WHEN WE INCREASE THE NUMBER OF UNITS, WE ARE INCREASING THE LAND VALUE AND WE ARE IMPACTING EVERYBODY IN THAT AREA.

AND WE CAN SAY, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GRATEFUL FOR FOUNDATION COMMUNITIES PROVIDING SO MANY AFFORDABLE UNITS AT SIERRA RIDGE AND SIERRA VISTA RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET.

I'VE WORKED WITH THOSE COMMUNITIES AND KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE RELIED ON THAT HOUSING.

AND I WANT TO REMIND FOLKS THAT FOUNDATION COMMUNITIES CONTINUES EVICT PEOPLE, BECAUSE THEY CAN NO LONGER PAY THE CURRENT 50% MFI OR THE CURRENT 60 OR 70 OR 80%.

I'M A FIRE, WHATEVER THAT IS.

SO YOU SAW THE CURRENT MFI RIGHT NOW, BUT THAT WILL BE HIGHER NEXT YEAR AND HIGHER THE FOLLOWING YEAR.

AND IT WILL BE HIGHER AS THESE HIGHER INCOME EARNERS MOVE INTO THE AREA.

AND THAT'S HOW PEOPLE GET EVICTED, UH, BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT LOCKED IN AT THE RENT THAT THEY'RE PAYING IN THE BEGINNING, THEY'RE BEING JUDGED ON THE INCOMES OF OUR MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME CITYWIDE.

SO WE DON'T HAVE A LACK OF UNITS.

WE HAVE A LACK OF AFFORDABLE UNITS, AND WE'RE GETTING MAYBE 14 CLOSE TO WHAT THE COMMUNITY MIGHT ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO BENEFIT FROM, FROM THIS DEVELOPMENT.

THAT'S GREAT.

UM, THERE ARE ALSO OTHER CONSEQUENCES OF THIS ZONING WITHOUT ACTUAL ANTI-DISPLACEMENT PROGRAMS AND MEASURES IN THE AREA.

SO, UM, THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

UM, I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR THE WORK.

THIS CONTACT TEAM HAS DONE.

THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN ANTI-DEVELOPMENT, BUT I UNDERSTAND THEIR CONCERNS.

OKAY.

DO WE HAVE ANY, UH, COMMISSIONERS THAT WANT TO SPEAK, UH, FOR THE SIGN THEM AGAINST, SO THAT KIND OF WRAPS UP OUR, UM, SO NOW LET'S GO AHEAD AND VOTE ON THE MAIN MOTION, UM, AND SEE THE, UH, UH, THOSE THAT ARE VOTING FOR FOUR.

SO THAT'S 10, FOUR, AND THOSE VOTING AGAINST, UM, I SEE NONE AGAINST ANY VOTING ABSTAINING.

WE HAVE ONE, UH, CHERRY ANDERSON.

I DON'T KNOW IF I GOT YOUR VOTE.

MAYBE IT WAS BEHIND YOUR NAME.

OH, YOU WERE GREAT.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

NO, I DID GET YOU.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, SO THAT'S 10 AND, UH, ZERO ONE.

WHAT'S THE VOTE ON THAT ITEM.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR HELPING ME OUT THERE.

UH, NOW YES, YES, I DID.

UH, WE HAVE, UH, 11 TOTAL AND I, I READ IT IS 10 ZERO ONE.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

[B16. Code Amendment: C20-20020-006 North Burnet / Gateway Regulating Plan – Civic Uses]

UH, SO NOW WE MOVE INTO ITEM 16.

THIS IS CODE AMENDMENT, UH, C 22 ZERO ZERO TWO ZERO DASH OH OH SIX, NORTH BURNETT GATEWAY REGULATING PLAN, UH, CIVIC USES.

AND I JUST WANT TO SAY, UM,

[01:05:02]

UH, REAL QUICK, UH, WE NEED TO GO AHEAD AND VOTE TO EXTEND QUESTIONS.

UH, CAUSE I KNOW SOME OF YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.

SO CAN I, UH, GO AND GET A, I WOULD LIKE TO PROPOSE THAT WE OPEN IT UP FOR EIGHT COMMISSIONERS, FIVE MINUTES A PIECE, JUST KIND OF START FROM THE BEGINNING.

UH, DO I HAVE A MOTION TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? UH, OKAY.

WE HAVE, UH, UH, UH, BUSTER HEMPHILL.

AND DO I HAVE A SECOND, UH, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER SECONDS? UH, LET'S GO AHEAD AND VOTE ON THAT MOTION.

YEAH.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S SEE IF THERE'S YES.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, COMMISSIONER, HONEST, PALITO.

I'M SORRY.

I LOST TRACK OF WHAT WE'RE ACTUALLY VOTING ON.

SO WE'RE VOTING, WE HAD CONSUMED ALL OF OUR Q AND A LAST TIME AT THE LAST WORD HERE.

SO WHAT I'M ASKING IS TO RESET IT TO WHERE WE ALLOW EIGHT COMMISSIONERS, FIVE MINUTES APIECE FOR Q AND A AGAIN.

SO THAT'S, THAT'S THE MOTION ON THAT WE'RE, UH, VOTING ON.

THANK YOU.

I APOLOGIZE.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I THINK WE'VE GOT UNANIMOUS 11 L ON THAT ONE.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, SO NOW WE'LL GET STARTED WITH THE, WE HAVE, UM, OKAY.

I'M LOOKING HERE.

WE HAD ALREADY HEARD FROM STAFF, UH, I GUESS RIGHT NOW WE'LL DO WE NEED TO HEAR FROM STAFF ON THIS AGAIN? UH, ANYONE.

OKAY.

I KNOW WE ALREADY HAD THE STAFF PRESENTATION AND, UH, SOME Q AND A, BUT DO WE NEED THE HEATER? UH, DO WE HAVE ANY, UH, DIFFERENT STAFF, UH, THEY WANTED TO SPEAK TO THIS? YES.

MR. THIS JERRY WEST OVER THROUGH OUR HOUSING AND PLANNING DEPARTMENT, JUST TO REFRESH MY MEMORY.

UH, THIS IS AN ITEM TO MEN.

THE NORTH PREDICT GATEWAY REGULATING PLAN TO ALLOW FOR TWO ADDITIONAL CIVIC USES, UM, MAJOR UTILITY FACILITIES AND MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE FACILITIES WITHIN THE DISTRICT KNOWN AS TOD WITHIN THE NORTH BURNET GATEWAY.

UM, IT DOES NOT APPLY TO A SINGLE PROPERTY WOULD APPLY TO ALL PROPERTIES UNTIED WITHIN THERE.

HOWEVER IT IS A CIVIC USE AND A WOULD APPLY ONLY TO GOVERNMENT USE.

AND, UH, IT'S BEEN DONE AT THE REQUEST OF AUSTIN ENERGY WHO WOULD LIKE TO ADD A UTILITY SUBSTATION AT THEIR KRAMER LANE SERVICE CENTER SITE.

UH, THE KRAMER SITE'S BEEN THERE FOR A LONG TIME SINCE THE SIXTIES, AND, UM, UM, THEY NEED THE SUBSTATION TO SERVE THE ADDITIONAL GROWTH THAT IS OCCURRING AS A RESULT OF THE NORTH BURNET GATEWAY PLAN, AS WELL AS THE DOMAIN.

UH, MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE BROADMORE PROJECT, UH, THIS ACROSS THE RAILROAD TRACKS, WHICH HAS 6 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF DEVELOPMENT APPROVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL.

UM, HOWEVER IT WOULD SERVE ADDITIONAL PROPERTIES BESIDES THAT ONE.

UH, WE DO HAVE AUSTRALIA, NEW STAFF, AS WELL AS MYSELF ON THE LINE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, THE ITEM IS ALSO GENDER.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO WE HAVE A LITTLE TIME LEFT IN THE FIVE MINUTES FROM STAFF DISASTER AND ENERGY.

DO Y'ALL HAVE ANYTHING ADD TO THAT, OR YOU JUST WANT TO WAIT ON THE Q AND A, THIS IS SUSAN GROSS FROM AUSTIN ENERGY OF WE'LL DEFER TO YOU, UH, MR. TODD, WHATEVER YOUR PREFERENCE IS.

WE CAN, WE, WE DO HAVE SOME MAPS THAT WERE REQUESTED BY THE COMMISSIONERS.

UM, UM, MR. SHAW, AND WE CAN GO THROUGH THAT OR WE CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS, WHATEVER YOUR PREFERENCE IS.

UH, I, I WOULD, UH, THINK LET'S GO AHEAD AND, UM, MUTE TO THE SPEAKERS THAT WE, OTHER SPEAKERS WE HAVE, AND THEN WE'LL SAVE ANY, UH, PRESENTATION ITEMS YOU HAVE PULLED US UP DURING THE Q AND A, I THINK THAT WOULD BE THE BEST WAY TO MOVE FORWARD.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

SO, UH, NEXT WE HAVE MR. WALD, I BELIEVE IS ON THE LINE.

UH, YES, TOM WALTER, ARE YOU THERE SPEAKING NEUTRALLY? I'M HERE.

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

YES, I CAN HEAR YOU.

I THINK MY REMARKS WILL BE PRETTY BRIEF.

SO, UM, YEAH, I WANTED TO THANK AUSTIN ENERGY STAFF.

WE MET WITH THEM LAST WEEK, ALONG WITH URBAN TRAILS STAFF AND, UM, HAD A GREAT DISCUSSION, REALLY GOT THROUGH A LOT OF THE, THE, UH, CONCERNS THAT AUSTIN ENERGY HAD.

AND B ALSO DESCRIBED WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR AS FAR AS THE TRAIL ALIGNMENT WENT.

UM, WE HAVE SOME INITIAL IDEAS FOR AN AGREEMENT, BUT NOTHING HAS BEEN FINALIZED YET.

UM, I THINK AT THIS POINT WE ARE EXPECTING THAT WE'LL TAKE THE CONVERSATION

[01:10:01]

TOWARD THE COUNCIL AND HAVE THE CONVERSATION IN THAT CONTEXT.

UM, YOU
