GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE GARLAND CITY COUNCIL ON JANUARY 19, 2021.

THIS IS A SPECIAL MEETING FOR THE COUNCIL AND STAFF TO START THE PROCESS FOR REVIEWING OUR CIP PROJECTS AND BUDGETS FOR THE YEAR.

AND I WILL HAVE TO DOUBLE CHECK OVER HERE WITH ALL OF OUR MEETINGS WE DO ALLOW FOR PUBLIC COMMENT BEFORE WE START.

TO MY KNOWLEDGE, WE DON'T HAVE ANYONE REGISTERED TO SPEAK THIS EVENING.

SO COUNCIL WITH THAT.

WE WILL GO INTO THE GET INTO OUR AGENDA.

WE DO HAVE WE'RE GOING TO START OUT WITH ITEM ONE IS CONSIDER THE ADOPTION OF A

[1. Consider the Adoption of a Legislative Agenda for 2021 (87th Session of the Texas Legislature).]

LEGISLATIVE AGENDA FOR 2021 EIGHTY SEVENTH SESSION OF THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE AND COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH, WHO IS THE CHAIRMAN OF OUR LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE.

SIR, YOU HAVE SOMETHING FOR US? WE DO, SIR.

AND WE APPRECIATE YOU GUYS HEARING THIS DURING THE CIP MEETING.

AS YOU KNOW, THE LEGISLATIVE TIME FRAME IS PRETTY COMPRESSED.

SO WE'RE WORKING THESE UPDATES AND APPROVALS AND WHERE WE CAN TONIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE LAURA DE LA VEGA AND OUR CITY ATTORNEY, BRAD NEIGHBOR, DOING A PRESENTATION FOR US.

TAKE IT AWAY, GUYS.

MR. NEIGHBOR.

SIR, THANK YOU.

MAYOR COUNCIL, WHAT WE'RE ASKING OF YOU TONIGHT IS APPROVAL OF THE SO-CALLED LEGISLATIVE AGENDA FOR THIS SESSION.

I SAY SO-CALLED BECAUSE IT'S NOT AN AGENDA AS FAR AS A DETAILED LISTING OF THE SORTS OF BILLS THAT WE PROPOSE TO EITHER SUPPORT OR OPPOSE, BUT RATHER A STATEMENT OF THE OVERRIDING PRINCIPLE OF THE GUIDE AS WE PROCEED THROUGH THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION, WE ANTICIPATE A LARGE NUMBER OF BILLS BEING FILED IN THIS SESSION, A LARGE NUMBER OF BILLS ALREADY BEEN FILED.

WE ARE COMPILING LISTS OF BILLS TO TRACK DURING THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

THAT LIST WILL BE CONTROLLED AND INFORMED BY THIS LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.

OF COURSE, THE MAIN GUIDING PRINCIPLE IS, IS THE REPRESENTATION OF THE TAXPAYERS AND RATEPAYERS OF THE CITY AND TRYING TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON LEGISLATION THAT WILL AFFECT THEIR LIVELIHOODS HERE AND IN THE CITY AND THE LIVABILITY OF THE CITY AND THE VIABILITY OF THE CITY AS WELL.

BOARD DO YOU HAVE THE SCREEN YOU CAN SHARE.

MAY HAVE LOST.

WE HAD SOME CONNECTION PROBLEMS EARLIER.

THERE WE GO.

RATHER THAN GOING THROUGH EACH SCREEN IN DETAIL BECAUSE IT'S BEEN POSTED IN THE AGENDA UNLESS THERE ARE QUESTIONS, I'D LIKE TO GET TO SOME OF THE CHANGES THAT WE MADE THIS AFTERNOON AFTER THE OR DURING THE COURSE OF THE LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE.

THIS ON THE OPENING PAGE, PROTECT AND PROMOTE THE INTERESTS OF OUR PEOPLE.

WE WANTED TO ADD THE CONCEPT AND BUSINESSES BECAUSE IT'S NOT JUST THE RESIDENTS WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO ADVOCATE ON BEHALF OF THE BUSINESSES IN GARLAND, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN HARD HIT BY THE PANDEMIC AND THE EFFECTS OF THE PANDEMIC.

THE NEXT SCREEN PLEASE LAURA.

ON THESE GENERAL STATEMENTS, CATEGORIES AND WHAT WE WILL DO AS WE DEVELOP THIS LEGISLATIVE TRACKING LIST OR LISTS WE'LL PLACE INTO A GENERAL CATEGORY, FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT, LAND USE AND SUCH.

WHAT WE DID HERE IS SPLIT OUT OF A PREVIOUSLY COMBINED TOPIC INTO PUBLIC HEALTH AND PUBLIC SAFETY.

AND WE'LL GET TO THOSE IN JUST A FEW SLIDES.

ON THE STATEMENT OF FISCAL AND FINANCIAL STRENGTH, THE POSTED FORM OF THIS DOCUMENT HAD ALREADY CONTAINED A STATEMENT AS FAR AS OPPOSING UNFUNDED MANDATES, THE COMMITTEE FELT THAT THE STATEMENT WAS PERHAPS TOO CONSTRUCTIVE ON WHAT WE'RE

[00:05:10]

LOOKING AT OR WHAT WE'D WANT TO OPPOSE AS FAR AS UNFUNDED MANDATES.

AND FOR THE LISTENING PUBLIC, IF YOU'RE UNFAMILIAR WITH THE TERM UNFUNDED MANDATES, IS SOMETHING SOME LEGISLATION THAT, IF ENACTED, CAUSES AN INCREASE IN CITY EXPENSES THAT ARE, OF COURSE, PASSED ON THROUGH TAXES AND REVENUES, OTHER SORTS OF REVENUES, FEES, RATES.

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO CONTROL IS IN RECOGNITION OF THE REVENUE GAPS THAT WERE PUT INTO PLACE DURING THE LAST SESSION, WE'RE BEING SQUEEZED OUT OF BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE ALL THE SERVICES AS MANDATED BY THE STATE THROUGH LEGISLATION AND IN THE CONTEXT OF THOSE REVENUE CAPS.

SO WHAT'S THE COMMITTEE PROPOSED HERE IS BROADENING THIS LIST IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO CATEGORICALLY POINT TO A LONG LIST WHAT WE THINK IS GOING TO BE A LONG LIST OF LEGISLATION THAT IMPOSES SOME SORT OF UNFUNDED MANDATE, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY NOT BE WITH RESPECT TO A PARTICULAR BILL, A VERY EXPENSIVE UNFUNDED MANDATE WHEN YOU COMBINE ALL OF THOSE, THE IMPACT IS CONSIDERABLE.

AND SO WE AMENDED THE STATEMENTS THAT WAS IN THE POSTED FORM OF THIS DOCUMENT TO BE A BIT BROADER SO THAT WE CAN ADDRESS THESE THINGS MORE HOLISTICALLY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND I DON'T SEE THE CHANGE ON THIS ONE.

OK WHICH ADD UNFUNDED MANDATES THAT INCREASE RATES FOR RATEPAYERS.

NOW, THIS IS IN PARTICULAR TO UTILITIES, AND I WAS TALKING PREVIOUSLY MOSTLY ABOUT TAXES, BUT THERE WILL BE, WE BELIEVE, BILLS THAT WILL CREATE UNFUNDED MANDATES THAT INCREASE RATES FOR RATEPAYERS AND GENERAL RATEPAYERS, FOR WATER, SEWER AND RATEPAYERS FOR THOSE CUSTOMERS THAT DO PAY NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

HERE'S THE PUBLIC HEALTH SLIDE THAT WE SPLIT OUT, PUBLIC SAFETY, WE'RE COMING UP WITH THE LATTER IN JUST A MINUTE.

AGAIN, WE ADDED THE CONCEPT AND BUSINESSES RECOGNIZING THAT WE ARE TRYING TO REPRESENT AND ADVOCATE THE INTERESTS OF NOT JUST RESIDENTS, BUT OUR BUSINESSES AS WELL.

THE SECOND BULLET POINT IS, WE THINK TRYING TO CAPTURE THE IDEA THAT WE AS A CITY HAVE BEEN MOSTLY, SOMETIMES EXCLUSIVELY AT THE FOREFRONT AND PROVIDING SERVICES AND DISASTER MANAGEMENT IN ALL KINDS OF EMERGENCIES.

IN THE PAST, IT WAS TORNADOES AND OTHER THINGS.

HERE WE'VE BEEN CONTENDING WITH A PANDEMIC AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE A LOT OF BILLS ON ALL SIDES OF THE ISSUE, EITHER TRYING TO PUSH CITIES OUT OF THE WAY ENTIRELY OR PUT MORE RESPONSIBILITIES ON THE CITIES IN EMERGENCY AND DISASTER MANAGEMENT THAT MAY HAVE AN ADVERSE IMPACT ON HOW WE DELIVER OUR SERVICES TO OUR TAX AND RATEPAYERS.

SO THAT SECOND BULLET POINT COVERS THAT AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

PUBLIC SAFETY, WE'RE NOT REALLY SURE WHAT ALL WE'RE GOING TO SEE HAPPEN, ALTHOUGH WE KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF BILLS COMING THROUGH THAT THAT IMPACT LAW ENFORCEMENT, HOW WE CONDUCT LAW ENFORCEMENT, SO CALLED POLICE REFORM OR I'M NOT TAKING A POSITION ON THAT.

BUT THAT'S THE GENERAL TERM THAT'S BEING USED TO DESCRIBE THOSE KIND OF BILLS.

THAT SAID, WHAT WE WANT TO BE IS A RESOURCE IN HELPING OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS IN AUSTIN COME UP WITH THE BEST PUBLIC POLICY THAT THEY CAN RECOGNIZING ALL SORTS OF POSITIONS ON THOSE ISSUES.

AND AGAIN, THIS AFFECTS NOT JUST OUR RESIDENTS, BUT OUR BUSINESSES AND THE ABILITY

[00:10:09]

OF BUSINESSES TO CONDUCT THEIR ENTERPRISES IN THE CITY WITH THE RESOURCES, THE LAW ENFORCEMENT, RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE TO US IN THE CITY.

ON THIS SLIDE, I DON'T THINK WE MADE A CHANGE HERE.

NOT THAT I RECOGNIZE BUT THESE ARE GOING TO BE OF PARTICULAR INTEREST.

WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THESE BEFORE THE BUILDING MATERIALS BILL AND THE SHOT CLOCK.

WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING IN PARTICULAR AT THOSE TWO TOPICS WITHIN THE GENERAL SCOPE OF DEVELOPMENT AND LAND USE LEGISLATION, BUILDING MATERIALS, WE NEED TO FIND SOME WAY TO AT LEAST PROVIDE CONSISTENCY THROUGHOUT OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SO THAT OUR RESIDENTS ARE FACED WITH A HOUSE BEING REDONE NEXT TO THEM THAT CONSIST OF CORRUGATED STEEL SIDING OR SOMETHING OF THAT SORT, WHICH IS POSSIBLE UNDER CURRENT LEGISLATION.

AND THE 30 DAY SHOT CLOCK, AS WE CALL IT, WHAT WE FOUND TO BE TOO SHORT BECAUSE IT SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTS THE ABILITY OF THE PUBLIC TO HAVE INPUT INTO THE ZONING CASE IT'S JUST TOO SHORT.

AND WE INTEND TO ADVOCATE FOR A LONGER SHOT CLOCK PERIOD RECOGNIZING SHOT CLOCKS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY.

WE MAY WELL BE ABLE TO WORK WITH SOMETHING THAT 60 OR 90 DAYS.

IT'S A MATTER TO BE SEEN.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

VETERANS AFFAIRS, MILITARY AND VETERANS AFFAIRS, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT, I THINK COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH AND SOME OF THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL HAVE BEEN PUTTING SOME IDEAS IN HOW WE'RE GOING TO GO ABOUT THIS.

BUT THIS IS GOING TO BE A SPECIFIC TOPIC THAT WILL IMPACT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE VETERANS HOSPITAL.

IT'S CURRENTLY BEING WORKED ON HERE IN GARLAND.

GO AHEAD.

ON A PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE, YOU SEE THAT HIGHLIGHTED CHANGE ON THE SECOND BULLET POINT.

THIS BULLET POINT PERTAINS IN PARTICULAR TO THE DEPLOYMENT OF 5G AND USE OF RIGHTS OF WAY BY 5G PROVIDERS.

THAT WAS A BILL THAT CAME ABOUT LAST SESSION AND THEY ARE DEPLOYING THAT SORT OF THING.

WHAT WE WANTED TO RECOGNIZE, THOUGH, IS, THAT WE'RE NOT JUST TRYING TO CONTROL PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY AND MAKE SURE THAT WHAT IS BEING DEPLOYED IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF OUR CITIZENS.

BUT TO RECOGNIZE TOO THAT THE USE OF THAT RIGHT OF WAY AND THINGS IN THAT RIGHT OF WAY, I WOULD SAY POLES, STREET SIGN POLES, LIGHT POLES, WHATEVER, THOSE ARE ASSETS OF OUR TAXPAYER.

AND WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO PROTECT THE TAXPAYERS INVESTMENT IN THOSE ASSETS.

AND SO THERE'S A SLIGHT MODIFICATION TO INCLUDE THE WORDS AND ASSET.

AND WITH THAT COUNCIL, I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY OF YOUR QUESTIONS.

WE DO SEEK A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS AGENDA AS AMENDED? THANK YOU.

OK.

AND, VERY GOOD.

IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION ON THIS ITEM.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH? THANK YOU, MAYOR.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I WANT TO REITERATE JUST FROM THE POSITION OF THE COMMITTEE, IS THAT WE ARE IN SOME WAYS SORT OF MAKING THE PROCESS UP FOR THIS AS WE GO ALONG.

COUNCIL FEELS THAT WE NEED TO ADJUST OUR APPROACH TO ANY OF THESE ITEMS OR HOW WE'RE DOING BUSINESS AS A COMMITTEE.

I WANT YOU TO BE LOUD AND PROUD ABOUT IT.

JUST LET US KNOW WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND AND WE'LL BE HAPPY TO MAKE ANY ADJUSTMENTS WHICH YOU FEEL ARE NECESSARY.

WE'RE HOPING TO START WITH THIS SORT OF STATEMENT OF GOALS.

AND THEN AS BILLS GET REFERRED INTO COMMITTEE AND GET CONSOLIDATED AND GET BROUGHT FORWARD, WE'RE HOPING TO BRING BACK THE SMALL KIND OF ONE PAGE SYNOPSIS OF THE BILL AND THINGS THAT WE APPROVE AS A COMMITTEE WE WILL BRING

[00:15:02]

THOSE BACK TO THE COUNCIL AND LET THE COUNCIL, YOU KNOW, ASSUMING WE DO HAVE TIME TO BRING EVERYTHING TO THE FORMAL COUNCIL PROCESS WITH THE COUNCIL TO WEIGH IN ON EACH OF THESE ITEMS. SO WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO KIND OF DO THIS AS WE'VE BEEN DOING IT UNLESS WE HEAR OTHERWISE.

SO THAT'S ALL I'VE GOT.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU SIR, COUNCIL MEMBER MCNEAL.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR AND COUNCILMAN SMITH, GREAT JOB.

EXCELLENT.

I JUST HAVE A QUESTION I BELIEVE ON SLIDE 2 WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE UNFUNDED MANDATE.

I THINK IT MAY HAVE BEEN SLIDE 2 AND MY QUESTION WOULD BE, DO WE THINK THAT IS IS HEALTHY ENOUGH OR DO BECAUSE WHAT I ENVISION IS THAT SOMETIMES THEY MAY PROVIDE FUNDING MAYBE FOR THE FIRST YEAR OF A MANDATE.

HOWEVER, MY QUESTION IS, DO WE NEED TO INDICATE THAT WE OPPOSE ANY LEGISLATION FOR UNFUNDED MANDATES FOR THE DURATION OF THAT MANDATE? DO WE JUST NEED TO ADD THAT ADDITION OR DO WE THINK WHAT WE HAVE THERE IS SUFFICIENT? I THINK IF I CAN RESPOND, I THINK WHAT WE HAVE IS SUFFICIENT.

AGAIN, OUR APPROACH THIS SESSION IS TO COMPILE A LIST OF THINGS THAT ARE UNFUNDED MANDATES AND SOME OF WHICH WE DON'T OPPOSE AS FAR AS THE SUBSTANCE OF THE BILL.

AND IT'S A CHALLENGE BECAUSE I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, BILLS THAT REQUIRE TRAINING OR CERTIFICATION OF EMPLOYED MAYBE A GREAT IDEA AND CONTINUE THAT EDUCATION OR CERTIFICATIONS OR TRAINING, WHATEVER YOU CALL IT, IS OFTENTIMES VERY HELPFUL.

BUT CARRIED WITH THAT IS A COST BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THAT TRAINING OR YOU HAVE TO PAY YOU HAVE TO REASSIGN EMPLOYEES AWAY FROM THEIR DUTIES TO ATTEND THE TRAINING, OR YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE REGISTRATION FEE OR THE LICENSING FEE OR WHAT HAVE YOU.

AND TO YOUR POINT, LONG TERM, IT'S LIKE A FOREVER COST BECAUSE.

RIGHT, CORRECT.

ONE TIME, NONE OF IT IS ONE TIME TRAINING.

IT'S AS NEW EMPLOYEES COME IN, THEY HAVE TO HAVE THAT TRAINING AS EMPLOYEES CIRCULATE THROUGH.

EXCUSE ME, THEY HAVE TO HAVE THAT TRAINING.

SO I THINK YOU HAVE A VALID POINT THERE, BUT WHAT WE HAVE, I FEEL IS SUFFICIENT TO CARRY VERY GOOD.

THANK YOU MR. NEIGHBOR.

ALL RIGHT, MAYOR PRO TEM NICKERSON.

THANK YOU, MAYOR COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH, THAT WAS A GOOD SUMMARY AND BRAD, I APPRECIATE GOING THROUGH IT.

I JUST HAVE A REAL GENERAL QUESTION AND MAYBE IT'S SOMETHING.

IT MIGHT BE FOR BRAD.

BRAD, WHAT'S THE INTENTION OR HOW WOULD WE ALSO TRACK, ALTHOUGH MAYBE IT'S NOT A DIRECT EFFECT, BUT TRACK ANY FEDERAL LEGISLATION THAT WE WANT TO KEEP AN EYE ON, WHAT WOULD BE A PLAN THERE OR SHOULD WE MAYBE HAVE AN ADDENDUM TO OUR PLAN FOR THE STATE SIDE TO KIND OF MONITOR SOME OF THE FEDERAL SIDE? WELL, FEDERAL LEGISLATION HAS BEEN MORE IMPORTANT TO US RECENTLY, ESPECIALLY DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC, TO BE HONEST WE'VE BEEN OUT OF THE FEDERAL REALM FOR QUITE A WHILE.

WE'RE NOT A MEMBER OF NLC ANYMORE.

WE STILL GET SOME OF THEIR NOTIFICATIONS, TML TRACKS, SOME OF THAT, TOO, AND SO FAR AS THAT LEGISLATION DIRECTLY IMPACTS LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN TEXAS.

AS THINGS COME UP NOW THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE OPERATE ENTIRELY IN THE DARK THROUGH OUR VARIOUS ASSOCIATIONS.

WE GET WIND OF LEGISLATION ON THE FEDERAL FRONT THAT COULD OR WILL IMPACT US AND WE CAN WEIGH IN AT THAT TIME.

BUT QUITE HONESTLY, THIS AGENDA IS DIRECTED AT THE MOST CURRENT PROBLEM THAT BEING THE NOW CURRENT SECTION OF THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE.

OK, I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE KEEP AN EYE ON IT FROM EVEN A DISTANCE, SOME OF THAT COULD BE FAIRLY INTRUSIVE.

WHO KNOWS? SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SIR.

IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE CLEARED THE QUEUE, IS THERE ANY HANG ON.

[00:20:02]

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH BACK IN.

I WAS JUST ASKING I WAS GOING TO ASK IF YOU NEEDED A FORMAL MOTION OR BECAUSE I THINK MR. NEIGHBOR HAD ASKED US TO VOTE ON THIS ONE TONIGHT.

THAT'S WHERE I WAS HEADED.

I'D BE HAPPY TO DO IT, SIR.

GO FOR IT.

PRESENTED TONIGHT.

I HAVE A MOTION.

SECOND.

I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

AND FIRST UP, I SAW A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

HE WAS OK.

I YIELD TO COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

HE'S MY SENIOR.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH AND A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

UNLESS THERE'S ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION COUNCIL, IF YOU COULD PLEASE VOTE.

AND SO FAR, I'M GOING TO CALL THAT UNANIMOUS.

THANK YOU COUNCIL.

THANK YOU, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL MOVE ON TO OUR CONSIDERATIONS FOR THIS EVENING.

[2. 2021 Proposed Capital Improvement Program (CIP) – Tax-Supported Staff Presentations.]

[3. Council Discussion and Questions Regarding 2021 Proposed CIP.]

ITEM 2 2021 PROPOSED CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMS, CIP TAX SUPPORTED STAFF PRESENTATIONS.

AND I BELIEVE MR. BRADFORD IS GOING TO LEAD US IN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE, IF I COULD, AND EXPRESS MY SINCERE GRATITUDE TO RON YOUNG WHILE WE STILL HAVE HIM FOR A FEW MONTHS BEFORE HE RETIRES THIS WILL BE HIS LAST BUDGET WITH THE CITY.

HE'S BEEN WITH THE CITY FOR THIRTY FOUR YEARS.

TWENTY FOUR OF THOSE YEARS IN BUDGET.

SO THAT MEANS THE POOR MAN HAS BEEN THROUGH FORTY EIGHT BUDGETS.

THAT IS ENOUGH FOR ANYONE AND THAT MEANS TWENTY FOUR YEARS WITHOUT ANY SUMMER VACATIONS.

AND HE TRULY HAS BEEN MY RIGHT HAND MAN FOR MANY, MANY YEARS.

AND IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE A BUDGET WITHOUT RON'S FINGERPRINTS ALL OVER IT.

HE HAS DONE A STELLAR JOB IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD, AND THIS YEAR EVEN COMPILED A BUDGET REMOTELY AND NEVER DID I THINK THAT COULD BE DONE.

WE WE HAVE A MUCH, MUCH BETTER BUDGET DEPARTMENT BECAUSE OF RON'S WORK AND HE WILL BE DEARLY MISSED.

BUT I KNOW I SPEAK FOR ALL OF YOU ON THE COUNCIL WHEN I SAY THANK YOU, RON, FOR YOUR MANY, MANY YEARS IN THE TRENCHES.

WITH WITH THAT, WE WILL MOVE ON TO THE DEPARTMENT PRESENTATIONS, WE HAVE RECEIVED QUESTIONS FROM SOME OF YOU AND WE'RE WORKING THROUGH THOSE AND WE'LL GET THOSE BACK TO YOU IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

WE APPRECIATE YOU SENDING THOSE INTO US.

AND WE'LL TRY TO TURN THOSE AROUND JUST AS QUICKLY AS WE CAN.

BUT, MAYOR, TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO START WITH THE STREETS FUNDING REQUEST.

YES.

AND I THOUGHT I SAW MR. OLIVER IN HERE SOMEWHERE.

STEVE I CAN'T SEE EVERYBODY'S FACES, SO I ASSUME IF YOU'RE TALKING.

I GUESS IT WOULD HELP IF I UNMUTED MYSELF.

BECAUSE I CAN'T SEE EVERYBODY'S FACES WHEN WE'RE DOING THIS ON THE SHARED SCREEN.

SO I WAS ASSUMING YOU WERE TALKING TO YOURSELF.

GO AHEAD SIR.

THIS MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT THE STREET DEPARTMENT'S 2021 PROPOSED CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE.

THE FIRST ITEM THAT WE HAVE ON THERE IS THE PAVING OF THE UNIMPROVED ALLEYS.

THIS WAS WHAT WAS APPROVED IN THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM.

JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA THIS IS THE CRITERIA THAT WE'RE USING FOR THE SELECTION OF THE ALLEYS IS PRIMARY LOCATIONS WITH MULTIPLE GRADED REQUESTS.

THE MAPS THERE SHOWS THOSE AREAS WHERE THERE ARE ALLEYS.

WE'RE TRYING TO COORDINATE WITH CITY UTILITY REPLACEMENT PROGRAMS. WE'RE LOOKING AT LOCATIONS THAT MIGHT BE RECOMMENDED BY COUNCIL.

THE MOST OF THE UNPAVED ALLEYS ARE IN DISTRICTS TWO, FIVE, SIX AND EIGHT.

THERE ARE A FEW SCATTERED THROUGHOUT ONE, THREE, FOUR AND SEVEN.

THE FUNDING CAN BE SPLIT AMONG DISTRICTS WITH LARGE AMOUNT OF ALLEYS.

AND WE WOULD BE UTILIZING THE THREE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLAR BOND OVER SEVEN YEARS, AVERAGE OF FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR.

[00:25:03]

AND THESE RECOMMENDATIONS WERE BASED ON PREVIOUS TIM COMMITTEE MEETINGS, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THIS ONE, WE HAVE ENTERED INTO THE WATER DEPARTMENT WITH TWO PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE GOING ON, ONE IN DISTRICT TWO, ONE IN DISTRICT EIGHT.

AND THEN THERE IS ANOTHER ONE THAT WE'RE WORKING ON THAT HAS MULTIPLE ALLEYS IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS.

SO THE INITIAL THRUST WILL BE TO TRY TO COORDINATE WITH THOSE SANITARY SEWER REPLACEMENT PROJECTS AND UNPAVED ALLEYS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS NEXT THIS YEAR WE'RE REQUESTING FIVE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS AND THAT WOULD BE TO REPLACE THE TWO FLAMELESS POTHOLE PATCHERS OVER THE UNITS THAT'S SHOWN ON THE TOP.

THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT WE USE THAT WE LOAD THE ASPHALT INTO.

AND THESE ARE THE ONES THAT PLUG IN.

AND WILL KEEP THE ASPHALT HOT OVERNIGHT AND OVER THE WEEKEND SO THAT WE CAN REUSE THAT, REUSE THAT UTILIZE ALL THE ASPHALT WITHOUT HAVING TO WASTE ANY OF IT.

THOSE UNITS WE'VE BEEN USING THOSE LIKE I SAY, THOSE UNITS ARE SEVEN YEARS OLD AND THEY'VE BECOME EXPENSIVE TO MAINTAIN.

AND THEREFORE WE'RE LOOKING TO GET NEWER UNITS THAT WOULD HAVE LESS REPLACEMENT COST.

THE NEXT ITEM IS A REPLACEMENT OF TWO IN THE SIX YARD DUMP TRUCKS WHICH WERE SHOWN IN THE MIDDLE PICTURE.

THE SIX YARD DUMP TRUCKS REALLY ARE SOMEWHAT INEFFICIENT PIECES OF EQUIPMENT SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY DON'T, YOU KNOW, MOST OF THE UNITS THAT WE'RE USING FOR HAULING ARE 12 YARD TRUCKS.

BUT WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO REPLACE THOSE WITH ARE THESE TANDEM TRUCKS THE FLATBED TWO AND A HALF YARD FLATBED TRUCKS, THAT WOULD ALSO BE QUAD CABS THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO HAUL.

MATERIAL MORE EFFICIENTLY AND TO HAUL FOR THE ENTIRE CREW OUT TO THE JOB SITE.

SO THIS WOULD GIVE US BETTER MOBILIZATION AND BETTER UTILIZATION OF THE EQUIPMENT.

NEXT ITEM.

AND THEN THIS OTHER ITEM IS WE'RE NOT ASKING FOR ANY MONEY IN THIS PROGRAM THIS YEAR, WE'VE ALREADY GOTTEN A MILLION DOLLARS FOR THIS.

THIS IS ONE OF THESE PROJECTS TO GO IN THERE AND TO PUT PADS AND TO PUT COVERED STORAGE AREAS FOR OUR EQUIPMENT.

THIS IS ONE AREA THAT WE HAD HOPED TO GET STARTED LAST YEAR, BUT IT'S LIKE A LOT OF THINGS COVID KIND OF SLOWED US DOWN.

SO THIS YEAR WE'RE LOOKING TO START WITH DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF SOME OF THESE UNITS.

AND THEN WE ANTICIPATE THE CONSTRUCTION WILL CONTINUE INTO 2022.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND LIKE I SAY THIS IS TO REPLACE THOSE ADMINISTRATIVE AND OPERATIONAL FACILITY, THE STREET DEPARTMENT FACILITY IS PART OF THE 2021 BOND PROGRAM AS WELL.

WE HAVE ALREADY MET WITH THE ARCHITECTS AND LOOKING AT THE ITEMS THAT WE WILL DO TO TO RECONSTRUCT OUR BUILDING IS GOING TO EXPAND THE BUILDING FROM SEVENTY FOUR HUNDRED SQUARE FEET TO TEN THOUSAND SQUARE FEET, AND THAT THE PROJECT IS SCHEDULED TO START CONSTRUCTION LATER THIS SUMMER AND ANTICIPATED TO TAKE APPROXIMATELY A YEAR TO CONSTRUCT.

NEXT SLIDE.

SUMMATION OF ALL THE ITEMS THAT WE'VE GOT THERE, THE PAVEMENT, UNIMPROVED ALLEYS, IS EIGHT HUNDRED AND TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS 570,000 DOLLARS IN EQUIPMENT.

THE EQUIPMENT, ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT NEW MONEY, IT WILL BE APPROXIMATELY FIVE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND THAT WE WILL SPEND.

AND THEN APPROXIMATELY SEVEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY THOUSAND TOWARDS THE STREET DEPARTMENT FACILITY FOR A TOTAL OF TWO POINT SIX SEVEN FIVE MILLION DOLLARS.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND THEN THIS IS THE STATUS OF THE BOND PROJECT SCHEDULES LIKE, I SAY, THE PAVING OF IMPROVED ALLEYS WILL EXTEND THROUGH 2026 AND OUR FACILITY SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY NEXT YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE.

THAT KIND OF ENDS OUR PRESENTATION AT THIS POINT, I'LL ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS ANYONE MAY HAVE.

VERY GOOD.

I HAVE DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS IN THE QUEUE.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, AND THANK YOU, STEVE.

I JUST, IF YOU DON'T MIND, DO YOU HAVE AT YOUR HANDS WITH THE UNPAVED ALLEYS WHICH ARE AT LEAST IN DISTRICT TWO, A CONSTANT TOPIC OF CONVERSATION? DO YOU HAVE THE SPECIFICS OF THE ALLEYS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT THIS YEAR? I CAN GET THAT INFORMATION FOR YOU.

I KNOW THERE'S ONE OFF OF CELESTE THAT WE'RE COORDINATING WITH THE WATER DEPARTMENT, BUT I CAN SEND YOU THAT LIST.

I JUST DON'T HAVE IT I WOULD APPRECIATE THAT.

AND I'M VERY HAPPY ABOUT THE STREET DEPARTMENT FACILITY.

[00:30:05]

HEAVEN KNOWS YOUR FACILITY WAS ONE OF THE FIRST ONES I VISITED EVEN BEFORE I WAS ON COUNCIL.

AND I'M VERY PLEASED YOU'RE GOING TO BE GETTING A NEW FACILITY.

YOU NEED IT.

SO THAT WAS IT.

REALLY APPRECIATE THE GOOD WORK YOU DO.

AND THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU.

VERY GOOD.

ANY MORE QUESTIONS FOR MR. OLIVER WHILE WE GOT HIM? I SEE OH COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. YEAH, JUST ONE QUICK, VERY NICE, MR. OLIVER.

I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE'S A NEW OR REVISED PAVEMENT RATING SYSTEM.

CAN YOU BRIEFLY EXPLAIN THE NEW SYSTEMS AND THE NEW ACRONYM? YOU KNOW, I WAS USED TO IN THE OLD GOLDEN DAYS PCI, AND IT'S NOT CALLED PCI ANYMORE.

CAN YOU JUST BRIEFLY EXPLAIN WHAT THE NEW SYSTEM IS? AND HOW IT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE OLD SYSTEM.

IN JULY OF 18, WE IMPLEMENTED THE CARDIOGRAPH SYSTEM.

IT'S A WORK MANAGEMENT / PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

IT'S FAIRLY SIMILAR TO THE EXISTING SYSTEM, THE PRIME, THE PREVIOUS SYSTEM.

WE STILL GO OUT AND PHYSICALLY INSPECT EACH OF THE STREETS AND THE ALLEYS.

THE INFORMATION THAT WE PUT IN KIND OF CONTAINS A FEW MORE ELEMENTS.

IT DOES CREATE WHAT'S CALLED A PCI.

BUT THEN THE ULTIMATE NUMBER THAT WE PRODUCE IS WHAT'S CALLED THE OCI OR THE OVERALL CONDITION INDEX.

AND WHAT THAT ALSO TAKES INTO ACCOUNT IN ADDITION TO THE PAVEMENT DEFECTS AND WHATNOT.

IT TAKES IN THE FACT THAT WHAT WE CALL THE RIDE ABILITY AND IT KIND OF TRIES TO REFLECT MORE WHAT THE CITIZEN EXPERIENCES AS THEY DRIVE DOWN THE STREET.

SO WE BELIEVE IT TO BE BECAUSE SOMETIMES THE PAVEMENT CONDITION INDEX MAY SHOW THE STREET'S REALLY BAD BECAUSE IT'S JUST GOT CRACKING AND STUFF, YOU KNOW, CRACKING, BUT IT MAY NOT RIDE THAT POORLY.

AND SO THE OCI TAKES INTO EFFECT NOT ONLY ALL THE DEFECTS AN EVERYTHING, BUT IT ALSO TAKES INTO EFFECT THE RIDE-ABILITY OF THE STREET AS WELL.

OK, THANK YOU MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, MR. OLIVER.

APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

NEXT UP, WE HAVE LET'S SEE HERE, ENGINEERING AND DRAINAGE FUNDING REQUEST, MR. POLOCEK.

YES, SIR.

GOOD EVENING.

HONORABLE MAYOR AND COUNCIL MEMBERS.

I WILL BE PRESENTING THE 2021 CIP FOR STREETS AND DRAINAGE PROJECTS.

CARMA.

THERE WE GO.

THIS YEAR, CARMA, IF YOU'LL GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS YEAR I KIND OF BROKE IT DOWN INTO TWO CATEGORIES, BEGINNING WITH THE 2004 BOND PROGRAMS AND I'LL DO THE 19 AND THEN WE'LL SUMMARIZE THE STREET PROJECTS AND THEN WE'LL MOVE INTO THE DRAINAGE PROJECTS AFTER AS WELL, BUT BEGINNING WITH THE 2004 BOND PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

FIRST PROJECT WE HAVE IS THE FIFTH STREET MILLER TO AVENUE D DRAINAGE FUNDING IS PROVIDED FOR THE DESIGN, LAND ACQUISITION AND CONSTRUCTION OF OFFSITE DRAINAGE SYSTEM.

THIS IS IN CONJUNCTION WITH 5TH STREET FROM MILLER TO D.

I KNOW IT'S NOT REALLY ON THE MAP THAT YOU SEE HERE, BUT WE'VE BUILT THIS IN THREE PHASES.

THIS IS THE THIRD AND FINAL PHASE THERE.

WE IMPROVED THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM IN FIFTH ON FROM MILLER TO D AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY WE'RE IMPROVING THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM DOWNSTREAM TO ACCOMMODATE THE DRAINAGE FROM FIFTH AS WE'VE CONSTRUCTED THIS, THE NEW DRAINAGE SYSTEM IS ANTICIPATED TO BE IN CONSTRUCTION IN OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR.

THIS IS FROM 2004 BOND FUNDS.

AND WE'VE RUN INTO A LITTLE SNAG ON THIS ONE WHEN WE WERE DESIGNING IT SINCE THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM IS GRAVITY BASED.

WE ALSO HAVE GRAVITY BASED WASTEWATER LINES AND WE ALSO HAVE WATER LINES OUT THERE THAT WE ACTUALLY WERE IN CONFLICT WITH AFTER WE OBTAINED ALL THE SURVEY INFORMATION.

WE TRIED TO WORK AROUND IT AND DO SOME DIFFERENT THINGS WE JUST COULDN'T MAKE MAKE IT ALL WORK TOGETHER.

SO WE HAD TO GO BACK AND TAKE A STEP BACK.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO REPLACE SOME OF THE WATER AND WASTEWATER LINES ON THIS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS PROJECT.

SO THAT'S INCREASED THE SCOPE A LITTLE BIT.

AND THEN ON TOP OF MOVING BACK TO THE WATER DEPARTMENT, WE DISCUSSED IT WITH THEM AND THEY'VE OPTED TO ACTUALLY.

AND SINCE WE'RE REPLACING SOME OF THESE OLDER LINES, THEY WANTED TO REPLACE A LITTLE BIT FURTHER.

SO IT INCREASED THE SCOPE A LITTLE BIT MORE TO GO BACK AND SURVEY SOME ADDITIONAL WORK FOR THE WATER DEPARTMENT TO REPLACE SOME OF THESE OUTDATED LINES THAT

[00:35:01]

NEED TO BE REPLACED.

SO IT HAS PUSHED THE SCHEDULE BACK A LITTLE BIT ON THIS PROJECT.

SO, IN ESSENCE, WE'RE ALSO REQUESTING TWO POINT THREE MILLION IN UNFUNDED REQUESTS TO COMPLETE THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM IN THIS AREA.

AND THAT WOULD INCREASE IT ALL THE WAY BACK FROM NOT JUST THE AREA YOU SEE ON THE MAP, BUT ALL THE WAY BACK TO 5TH STREET.

THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM WOULD BE IMPROVED.

BUT AGAIN, WE ANTICIPATE THIS TO BEGIN IN OCTOBER OF 2021 AS FAR AS CONSTRUCTION THIS YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

COLLEJO ROAD FROM BOTELLO TO CAMPBELL IS CURRENTLY UNDER DESIGN, WE'RE PERFORMING SOMEWHAT OF AN ALIGNMENT STUDY NOW AND IN LIGHT OF THE PARKS DEPARTMENT'S MASTER PLAN THAT THEY'RE ROLLING OUT, WE LOOKED AT THIS AREA TO TRY TO DO SOME ENHANCED SIDEWALKS OR WIDER SIDEWALKS OR POSSIBLY EVEN A TRAIL IN HERE.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT THE RIGHT OF WAY IN THIS AREA TO SEE WHAT ROOM WE HAVE IN THE RIGHT OF WAY TO FIT THESE TRAILS IN.

BUT EVERYTHING'S ON SCHEDULE WITH THIS PROJECT, AND WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN MAY OF NEXT YEAR.

AND THESE INCLUDE THE TWO THOUSAND FOUR BOND FUNDS.

AND WE ARE REQUESTING, BASED ON OUR CURRENT COST ESTIMATES, ADDITIONAL 16000 OF UNFUNDED REQUESTS INTO IN 2023 TO COMPLETE THE CONSTRUCTION WHEN WE GET TO THAT POINT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

CHA ROAD FROM I 30 TO LAKE RAY HUBBARD PARKWAY.

WE BEGAN DESIGN JUST A LITTLE BIT EARLIER, THIS, I BELIEVE IT WAS LATE SUMMER, EARLY FALL, IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, AND DESIGN IS GOING WELL ON THIS.

AGAIN, WE'RE WORKING WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT ON THEIR MASTER PLAN TO TRY TO INCORPORATE TRAILS WHEREVER WE CAN AND WIDER SIDEWALKS.

EVERYTHING'S MOVING WELL ON THIS PROJECT.

AND WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN FIRST PART OF NEXT YEAR OF JANUARY OF NEXT YEAR, IF NOT, MAYBE A LITTLE BIT BEFORE THEN.

IF WE CAN GET EVERYTHING DESIGNED AND WE DON'T HAVE RIGHT OF WAY ISSUES LIKE WE'RE ANTICIPATING RIGHT NOW, WE BELIEVE WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO BUILD THIS HOPEFULLY WITHOUT TOO MANY ACQUISITIONS.

AGAIN, THIS IS FROM THE 04 BOND PROGRAM AS WELL.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

BOBTOWN ROAD, ROWLETT TO WATERHOUSE, THIS PROJECT IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AFTER MANY YEARS AND A FEW ITEMS OF SCOPE CREEP ON THIS ONE, BUT THIS IS GOING TO BE A PROJECT THAT'S BEEN WELL NEEDED FOR SOME TIME.

WE'RE WIDENING THIS FROM A TWO LANE ASPHALT TO BASICALLY A THREE LANE UNDIVIDED THOROUGHFARE FROM ROWLETT TO WATERHOUSE.

AND IT INCLUDES, AS YOU SEE, THE RED DASH LINES ON THIS MAP HERE.

IT INCLUDES A TWENTY FOUR INCH WATER MAIN ON COUNTRY CLUB AND BOBTOWN ROAD.

I DO WANT TO REITERATE THAT WE'RE NOT REPAVING ALL OF BOBTOWN OR COUNTRY CLUB ON THOSE TWO SECTIONS.

THOSE ARE JUST GOING TO BE WHERE THE WATER LINES ARE CONCERNED THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE REPLACING ANY KIND OF PAVEMENT.

BUT THE REST OF BOBTOWN FROM ROWLETT TO WATERHOUSE IS A FULL RECONSTRUCTION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WATERHOUSE IS ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS.

THIS CAME UP A FEW YEARS BACK, WE DECIDED TO ADD THIS.

THIS IS ONE OF THE LAST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE.

THIS IS STILL AN ASPHALT ROAD AS WELL.

AND WE BROUGHT THIS TO COUNCIL A FEW YEARS BACK AND IT WAS FUNDED COMPLETELY THROUGH COS.

AND WE'RE ACTUALLY REQUESTING TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY EIGHT THOUSAND IN 2021 COS TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

AS THE BIDS DID COME IN AND EVERYTHING ELSE ON WATERHOUSE IS ACTUALLY CONCRETE CURB AND GUTTER WITH UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE AND THIS IS THE LAST PIECE, AND WE DECIDED IT WOULD MAKE THE MOST SENSE TO CONSTRUCT IT ALL TOGETHER AS ONE PROJECT.

BUT THIS WILL ALSO BE COMPLETED AT THE SAME TIME AS BOBTOWN.

IT'S ALL BEING CONSTRUCTED AS ONE LARGE PROJECT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND EVERYBODY KNOWS ABOUT SHILOH ROAD, IT'S BEEN UNDER CONSTRUCTION FOR SOME TIME NOW, IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN OUT THERE, I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO AVOID IT BECAUSE OF THE CONSTRUCTION.

BUT IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN OUT THERE, WE DO HAVE PAVEMENT DOWN.

WE'VE ACTUALLY SWITCHED TRAFFIC OVER, I BELIEVE, LAST WEEK OR THE WEEK BEFORE TO SOME OF THE NEW PAVEMENT.

SO WE FINALLY HAVE A LOT OF THE UTILITY WORK DONE ON THAT ONE SIDE AND TRAFFIC HAS MOVED OVER.

WE'RE HOPEFULLY GOING TO BE WORKING TOWARDS GETTING THE OTHER SIDE PAVED AN THE MIDDLE PAVED.

STILL HAS SOME WAYS TO GO.

AND WE'RE COORDINATING WITH TXDOT EVEN ON THE SOUTHERN END WHERE THEY'RE CONNECTING BACK TO SHILOH ROAD.

AND THAT'S KIND OF IN FLUX RIGHT NOW TOO TRYING TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHERE THEY'RE CONNECTING.

AND BUT LONG STORY SHORT, THIS IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

EVERYTHING'S MOVING FORWARD.

IT'S ALL PAID OUT OF 04 BOND FUNDS COS AND IMPACT FEES AS WELL AS DALLAS COUNTY HAD AGREED TO TEN POINT ONE MILLION PARTICIPATION IN THIS PROJECT AS WELL.

AND THE COMPLETION DATE IS, WE'RE STILL ESTIMATING, DECEMBER OF 2022.

[00:40:06]

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM PROJECTS FOR STREET PROJECTS.

NEXT SLIDE.

NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD FROM BRAND TO 78, THIS IS CURRENTLY UNDER DESIGN, FUNDING IS APPROVED FOR THE LAND ACQUISITION AND WE'RE WIDENING THIS FROM A TWO LANE ASPHALT ROAD, TO A FOUR LANE DIVIDED THOROUGHFARE.

MULTI USE TRAIL WILL BE INCLUDED.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PROPERTIES THAT WE'VE MADE CONTACT WITH WE'RE DEALING WITH AT THIS TIME FOR THE LAND ACQUISITION, AS YOU ALL MAY RECALL, HAVE SEEN SOME OF THESE EXHIBITS ON THIS THERE ARE DIFFERENT ALIGNMENTS, HAD DIFFERENT PROPERTIES BEING PURCHASED ALONG THIS ROUTE.

AND SO WE'RE DEALING WITH ALL THE PROPERTY OWNERS ON THOSE PARTICULAR HOMES AND RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES.

DALLAS COUNTY HAS ALSO AGREED TO FUND FIVE POINT TWO DOLLARS MILLION IN THIS PROJECT.

AND WE'RE ESTIMATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN FEBRUARY OF 2022.

THIS PROJECT IS WITH THE NINETEEN BOND PROGRAM.

ALL THESE NEXT PROJECTS ARE BEING RUN THROUGH OUR PMO OFFICE AS WELL AS OUR PRIVATE CONSULTANT WITH AE COM.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

HOLFORD ROAD SEGMENT A FROM PGBT TO CREEKWOOD, THIS PROJECT IS UNDER DESIGN, IT INCLUDES 19 BOND FUNDS, IMPACT FEES, AS WELL AS DEVELOPER PARTICIPATION FUNDS.

AND AGAIN, DALLAS COUNTY IS ALSO COMMITTED TO FUND 4.75 MILLION OF THIS PROJECT AS WELL.

THIS IS A MUCH NEEDED ROADWAY UP IN THE NORTHERN SECTION OF THE CITY.

THERE'S ALREADY TRAILS COMPLETED IN THE NORTHERN SECTION OF THIS AN THE SOUTHERN SECTION.

AND WE'RE GOING TO COMPLETE THE TRAIL IN THE MIDDLE WITH THIS PROJECT.

AND WE ANTICIPATE CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN AUGUST OF THIS YEAR.

SO WE'RE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING THIS PROJECT UNDERWAY AND UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE SOUTHERN END OF THE PGBT, THERE'S A SECTION OF HOLFORD ROAD, WHAT WE CALL SEGMENT B FROM NAAMAN FOREST PGBT.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, THIS ONE IS IN DESIGN AND HAS BEEN STUDIED TO THIS POINT.

THE DETAILED DESIGN, I BELIEVE, IS GOING TO FOLLOW A LITTLE BIT LATER.

WE'RE A LITTLE BIT AHEAD ON THIS.

THE ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION YOU SEE IS FEBRUARY OF 2023.

WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS WAIT FOR SEGMENT A TO BE FULLY CONSTRUCTED, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO END IN OCTOBER OF 2022 AND THEN ANTICIPATE THIS ONE TO BEGIN IN FEBRUARY OF 2023 IMMEDIATELY AFTER.

I DON'T BELIEVE WE WANT TO HAVE BOTH OF THESE UNDER CONSTRUCTION AT THE SAME TIME, ESPECIALLY JUST THE ACCESS THROUGH THERE.

AND PLUS WE HAVE STILL A FIRE STATION LOCATED ON THIS ROAD THAT WOULD IMPACT THEIR SERVICE TO THE AREA.

SO WE'RE ANTICIPATING OR WAITING UNTIL THE PREVIOUS ONE IS COMPLETE AND BEGIN THIS CONSTRUCTION.

AGAIN DALLAS COUNTY'S AGREED THE 1.46 MILLION FOR THIS PROJECT AS WELL.

AND THIS ALSO INCLUDES DEVELOPER FUNDS AS WELL AS BOND FUNDS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

LYONS ROAD IS UNDER DESIGN AND STUDY AND AGAIN WITH HOLFORD B WE ARE INCLUDING THE ELEMENT OF THE TRAIL SYSTEM AS WELL AS WIDER SIDEWALKS, AND THE SAME HOLDS TRUE FOR LYONS ROAD.

WE'RE STUDYING THIS AREA TO DETERMINE WHAT, IF ANY, WHAT WE CAN DO WITH THE SIDEWALKS AND THE TRAIL SYSTEM THROUGH THIS AREA AS WELL.

BUT THIS IS ALSO A TWO LANE ASPHALT ROAD BEING WIDENED TO A FOUR LANE DIVIDED CONCRETE THOROUGHFARE AND TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN BOND FUNDS AND IMPACT FEES FOR THIS PROJECT.

AND WE'RE ESTIMATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN FEBRUARY OF 2023.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SHILOH KINGSLEY TO MILLER.

THIS IS THE NEXT PHASE OF SHILOH.

WE'RE CURRENTLY WORKING FROM FROM 635 TO KINGSLEY.

THIS WILL BE THE NEXT SECTION FROM KINGSLEY TO MILLER.

FUNDING TO WIDEN FROM A FOUR LANE TO A SIX LANE DIVIDED THOROUGHFARE.

AND THE CITY HAS SECURED RTC FUNDS IN THE AMOUNT OF EIGHTEEN POINT SEVEN FIVE MILLION FOR THIS PROJECT.

AND THEN THE CITY SHARE OR CITY'S PORTION OF THIS.

THE LOCAL SHARE IS GOING TO BE PAID OUT OF THE NINETEEN BOND FUNDS AND IMPACT FEES, AND WE'RE ESTIMATING THIS ONE TO BEGIN SHORTLY AFTER THE FIRST PHASE.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, THE FIRST PHASE OF OF SHILOH WOULD BE COMPLETE AND ESTIMATED IN DECEMBER OF TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

AND WE'RE LOOKING FOR THIS ONE TO BEGIN IN FEBRUARY OF TWENTY TWENTY THREE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

IN SUMMARY OF THE STREET PROJECTS, WE HAVE THE TWO THOUSAND FOUR BOND AND COS, SUBTOTAL AT AROUND TWO, JUST UNDER 20 MILLION AT NINETEEN POINT NINE EIGHT NINE

[00:45:04]

MILLION DOLLARS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND THE TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN BOND SUBTOTAL IS JUST OVER 12 MILLION AT TWELVE POINT ONE ONE EIGHT FOR THE PROJECTS IN THE 2019 BOND STREET PROJECTS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

MR. POLOCEK LET'S STOP FOR JUST A SECOND.

OK.

BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO DRAINAGE COUNCIL, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ON THE STREET PROJECT'S PORTION OF THE PRESENTATION SO FAR BEFORE WE GET TOO MUCH FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD? AND I KNOW THAT WAS NOT INTENTIONAL.

THAT WAS PURELY A SLIP OF A BAD JOKE THERE.

SO I HAVE NOBODY IN THE QUEUE.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO.

ALL RIGHT, DRAINAGE PROJECTS.

AGAIN, WE'RE GOING TO SPLIT THESE UP INTO 04 BOND PROGRAM AND 2019.

CLASSIC DRIVE YALE DRIVE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS.

THIS WAS A PROJECT THAT STARTED IN THE 04 BOND PROGRAM A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO.

THERE WERE A NUMBER OF FLOODING PROPERTIES ALONG CLASSIC DRIVE REALLY BETWEEN JUPITER AND FOREST CREST THERE.

AND WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING IS PART OF THIS PROJECT WAS CONSTRUCTED A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO.

AND WHAT THAT WAS, IT WASN'T REALLY A CONSTRUCTION.

IT WAS A DECONSTRUCTION OR A DEMOLITION.

THERE WAS A BUILDING THAT STRADDLED THE DRAINAGE WAY RIGHT THERE CLOSE TO JUPITER THAT WAS RESTRICTING THE FLOW THROUGH THERE.

THAT WAS CAUSING SOME OF THE DRAINAGE PROBLEM.

WE ACTUALLY PURCHASED THE BUILDING AND RAISED THE BUILDING AND REMOVED THE PIERS THAT WERE IN THE CREEK BOTTOM.

AND IT ACTUALLY OPENED UP THE FLOW TO DATE.

SINCE WE'VE DONE THAT, WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY COMPLAINTS OF FLOODING ALONG CLASSIC DRIVE.

NOW, WE INCLUDED SOME ADDITIONAL FUNDING IN HERE, EXPECTING TO HAVE TO DO SOME CHANNEL WORK TO THE CHANNEL.

AND RIGHT NOW WE'RE STUDYING THAT TO SEE IF THERE'S ANY ADDITIONAL DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS WE NEED TO MAKE TO THE CHANNEL FOR THE ACTUAL FLOODING ISSUE.

WE DO KNOW THERE BETWEEN FOREST, CREST AND BULLOCK, IF YOU CAN SEE ON THE MAP, THERE'S KIND OF A HEAVY, HEAVIER DARK, NON DASHED LINE.

AND WE DO KNOW WE HAVE SOME EROSION ISSUES ALONG THERE TO PROTECT AN ALLEY AND A SEWER LINE THAT ARE IN THE EMBANKMENT ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THAT CHANNEL.

SO WE DO KNOW WE HAVE IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE THERE, BUT WE'RE ALSO STUDYING THE REST OF THIS REACH, AS YOU SEE, THAT GOES ALL THE WAY UP YALE DRIVE AND REMODELING THIS AREA TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE ELEVATIONS THAT WE HAVE FOR THE HARRIS HOLLABAUGH REC CENTER AND THE WEST BRANCH LIBRARY WILL BE-- THAT ARE GOING TO BE CONSTRUCTED ON THE HOLLABAUGH PARK AREA, THAT WE HAVE THE ELEVATIONS CORRECT.

AND THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY DRAINAGE ISSUES CONCERNING THOSE BUILDINGS TO TRY TO GET THE ELEVATIONS FOR THOSE FINISHED FLOOR.

AND AGAIN, TRYING TO DETERMINE WHETHER WE HAVE ANY DRAINAGE ISSUES DOWNSTREAM THAT STILL NEED TO BE ADDRESSED.

SO RIGHT NOW, WE'RE JUST LOOKING AT COMPLETING THE STUDY THIS YEAR AND THEN MOVING INTO DESIGN PROBABLY NEXT YEAR ON ANY REMEDIATION ITEMS FOR THIS PROJECT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

GARLAND HEIGHTS AND FREEMAN HEIGHTS, VERY SIMILAR TO THE PARK DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS THAT A LOT OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH.

THIS IS A MORE OF A SUBDIVISION WIDE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS WHERE WE'VE HAD LOCAL FLOODING, WE'VE HAD A LOT OF PONDING WATER IN THE STREETS AND CARS GETTING INUNDATED WITH WATER.

IT'S JUST AN AREA THAT WHEN THEY BUILT IT BACK IN THE BELIEVE THE 40S OR 50S, THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM THAT THEY CONSTRUCTED WAS JUST UTILIZING THE STREETS AND DIDN'T REALLY HAVE ANY UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEMS INVOLVED.

SO WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO WITH THIS IS, IS TO IMPROVE THE DRAINAGE IN THIS AREA, TO ACCOMMODATE THIS, TO ALLEVIATE SOME OF THE FLOODING IN THIS ENTIRE AREA.

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE IN DESIGN AND WE'RE GOING TO COMPLETE THE DESIGN.

AND THE IDEA WOULD BE TO MOVE INTO POSSIBLY BIDDING AND GETTING THIS UNDER CONSTRUCTION BY MAY OF 2022.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

BRIDGE AND DRAINAGE INFRASTRUCTURE REMEDIATION.

THIS IS FUNDING FOR CONSTRUCTION COSTS RELATED TO REPAIR OF EXISTING BRIDGES AND DRAINAGE INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

MANY OF YOU PROBABLY KNOW THAT THIS IS THE THIRD PHASE THAT WE'RE WORKING ON WITH THIS PARTICULAR FUNDING.

AND ALL OF THIS WAS FUNDED-- EXCUSE ME, I BELIEVE FROM 20 OR FROM CO'S IN THE PAST.

THERE WAS ACTUALLY NO BOND FUNDING FOR THIS.

THIS CAME UP.

WE RECEIVE WHAT WE CALL BRINSAP REPORTS FROM TXDOT EVERY TWO YEARS.

AND IN THESE REPORTS, THEY TELL US THERE'S SOME DEFICIENCIES, THERE'S EROSION, THERE'S SCOURING.

THERE'S BRIDGE THAT IS FALLING.

THERE'S ALL DIFFERENT ISSUES WITH OUR BRIDGES.

AND THEY INSPECT THESE FOR ALL THE CITIES IN DALLAS COUNTY.

[00:50:04]

AND THEN THEY MAIL THEM OUT TO US AND THEY GIVE US ALL THESE REPORTS FOR THE 70 I BELIEVE THEY'RE SEVENTY EIGHT BRIDGE STRUCTURES IN GARLAND AND I BELIEVE SEVENTY TWO OF THEM ARE MAINTAINED BY THE CITY.

AND WE'VE OVER THE YEARS HAVE MADE IMPROVEMENTS TO ALL THESE BRIDGES, WHETHER IT'S UNDERNEATH OR ON TOP OR BRIDGE RAILINGS OR WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE BASED ON THESE TXDOT REPORTS.

AND AGAIN, WE REANALYZE THEM TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NOT ANY MORE SINCE THE REPORTS COME IN TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE IN AGREEMENT WITH THE REPORTS.

AND THEN WE PROCEED TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT THE IMPROVEMENTS ON THESE MIC] I CAN SEE OF THESE BRIDGES.

AND AS THEY ALWAYS SAY THERE'S AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE.

SO WE'RE TRYING TO PROTECT ALL THESE BRIDGES IN THE BEST WAY WE CAN AND MINIMIZE THE EXPENSE TO THEM AT A LATER DATE BY WAITING.

IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER WITH EROSION PROBLEMS WITH YOUR BRIDGES.

SO WE'RE REQUESTING AN ADDITIONAL EIGHT HUNDRED NINETY EIGHT THOUSAND AND TWENTY TWENTY ONE COS TO COMPLETE THE IMPROVEMENTS.

AND WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN ON THE REMAINING BRIDGES THAT YOU SEE HERE WITH THE RED DOTS ON THE MAP IN JUNE OF THIS YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

DRAINAGE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM.

THE CITY PARTICIPATED IN SOME DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS DATING BACK IN THE MID 80S TO PRESENT DAY.

THE IMPROVEMENTS AT THE END OF THE CONSTRUCTION, THE MAINTENANCE RESPONSIBILITY FELL ON THE CITY WITH RESPECT TO THESE GAPING WALLS THAT WE BUILT BACK IN THE 80S, IN THE MID 80S.

AND RIGHT NOW, THE FUNDING THAT WE'RE REQUESTING THIS YEAR IS TO PROVIDE FOR THE COMPLETION OF THE STUDY THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT ON SPRING CREEK BETWEEN JUPITER ROAD AND CAMPBELL ROAD.

WE HAVE A NUMBER OF THESE GABION WALLS THAT WERE BUILT BACK IN THE 80S AND EARLY 90S.

AND WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DETERMINE IS UPON VISUAL INSPECTION, THEY LOOK TO BE LIKE THEY NEED SOME REPAIR AND REPAIR WORK.

WE'RE TRYING TO VERIFY THAT STRUCTURES DO INDEED NEED REPAIR WORK.

AND THEN WHAT IS THE EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE, IF THERE IS ANY? AND WHAT SHOULD TAKE PRIORITY? SO WE'VE HIRED A CONSULTANT THAT'S AN EXPERT IN GABIONS TO GO OUT AND EVALUATE THE STRUCTURES FOR US AND PROVIDE US A STUDY THAT WE CAN GO BY, THAT WE CAN COME BACK TO THE COUNCIL WITH A PROGRESS OF SAYING, OK, WE NEED TO WORK ON THESE FIRST AND THEN THESE SECOND AND THEN THOSE WILL BE SUPPLEMENTAL DESIGNS FOR THE FUTURE FOR THE TWENTY TWENTY TWO CIP.

WE'RE REQUIRED-- WE'RE REQUESTING RIGHT NOW THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS AND TWENTY TWENTY ONE THESE WERE ALL COS BY THE WAY.

THIS WAS NOT ACTUALLY BOND FUNDING FROM 19.

THIS WAS MONEY IN COS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE 19 BOND PROGRAM IN THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

I'M GOING TO PREFACE THIS BY THE NEXT SIX SLIDES ARE ALL GOING TO BE SUBDIVISION IN DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE CITY, MUCH LIKE THE PARKMONT DRAINAGE PROJECT THAT WE COMPLETED A FEW YEARS AGO.

THEY'RE WIDER SCALE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS IN SUBDIVISIONS WHERE WE HAVE INADEQUATE DRAINAGE BASED ON TODAY'S CRITERIA OR WE'VE HAD REPORTED FLOODING ISSUES AND WE NEED TO INSTALL SOME UPGRADED SYSTEMS TO THE SUBDIVISIONS.

FIRST ONE BEING COUNTRY CLUB PARK ESTATES.

AND THIS IS OVER THERE NEAR COUNTRY CLUB PARKWAY AND CENTERVILLE ROAD AND JAMES GOOD.

WE'VE HAD A NUMBER OF FLOODING ISSUES IN THIS AREA AND STREET FLOODING.

AND AGAIN, WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN MARCH OF 2022 ON THIS PROJECT.

THIS IS UNDER DESIGN RIGHT NOW.

NEXT SLIDE.

GARVON WEST INDUSTRIAL PARK IS ALSO UNDER DESIGN.

THIS IS OVER OFF A DIVIDEND SECURITY CAVALIER.

THIS IS AN INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT IN GARLAND HAS AN OPEN CHANNEL FLOW, MAKES A LOT OF 90 DEGREE BENDS.

AND IF YOU'VE EVER TRIED TO TAKE WATER AND TURN IT ON A 90 DEGREE BEND, IT DOESN'T WORK VERY WELL.

AND ULTIMATELY, THESE BUSINESSES THAT WHERE THESE CHANNELS MAKE THE BENDS ARE FLOODING AND SO WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF STUDYING THIS RIGHT NOW AND HOPEFULLY MOVING STRAIGHT INTO DESIGN PRETTY SOON ON THIS.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE MOVED INTO DESIGN, IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN, AND WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN ON THIS PROJECT IN MAY OF 2022.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

LAKEWOOD ADDITION.

JUST NORTH AND WEST OF HERE OR ALMOST DUE WEST OF HERE, I GUESS, FROM DOWNTOWN.

[00:55:01]

WALNUT STREET, NORTH GARLAND AVENUE BACKS UP THE DUCK CREEK.

A LOT OF THIS AREA IS JUST LIKE WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT IN THE 04 DRAINAGE PROJECT WITH GARLAND AND FREEMAN HEIGHTS.

THIS IS AN OLDER SECTION OF GARLAND BUILT A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO.

HARDLY ANY UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEM IN THE AREA AND THE STREETS TAKE ALL THE BRUNT AND CARS ARE FLOODING HOUSES ARE INUNDATED WITH WATER UNDERNEATH THE FOUNDATIONS AND SOMETIMES EVEN IN THE RESIDENTS THEMSELVES.

AND THIS IS JUST AN AREA THAT JUST NEEDS TO HAVE THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM UPGRADED.

AGAIN, WE'RE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION ON THIS ONE TO BEGIN IN FEBRUARY OF 2024.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WESTERN HEIGHTS NUMBER FOUR, THIS IS A LITTLE BIT SMALLER AREA, BUT WE DO HAVE A LOT OF FLOODING ALONG MARCH LANE THE 3200 BLOCK, A LITTLE BIT SMALLER SCALE COMPARED TO SOME OF THE OTHERS.

BUT AGAIN, THIS ONE IS IN, I BELIEVE, IN STUDY RIGHT NOW.

THEY HAVE NOT MOVED TO FULL DESIGN ON THIS ONE YET, BUT WE ANTICIPATE CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN ON THIS ONE IN FEBRUARY OF 2024.

NEXT SLIDE.

SATURN SPRINGS ESTATES, I KEEP REFERRING TO PARKMONT LOT, IS THE SUBDIVISION IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OR THE PARKMONT PROJECT IS THE SUBDIVISION IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OF THE BLUE LINE HERE, JUST BELOW CARNEY DRIVE.

THIS IS THE NEXT PHASE OF THAT AREA WHERE WE NEED TO UPGRADE THE STORM DRAINAGE SYSTEM IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA OFF OF SATURN SPRINGS.

I BELIEVE IT'S OVERHILL, BRIARWOOD, SYCAMORE, ASHWOOD.

THIS IS INTERESTING BECAUSE ABOUT WHERE SATURN SPRINGS DRIVE IS PRINTED ON THIS MAP IS A DRAINAGE WAY OR A CREEK.

IT'S A TRIBUTARY TO DUCK CREEK AND THIS IS ALMOST TWO DIFFERENT DRAINAGE AREAS.

THERE'S ONE FROM CARNEY DRIVE THAT ALL FLOWS FROM SOUTH TO NORTH TO THE CHANNEL.

AND THEN ON THE NORTH SIDE THAT YOU SEE THERE, THAT INCLUDES OVERHILL AND BRIAROOD SYCAMORE.

THEY ALL FLOW NORTH TO SOUTH INTO THAT SAME CHANNEL.

BUT BOTH OF THESE SUBDIVISIONS HAVE EXPERIENCED ADDRESSES, FLOODING AND STREET FLOODING.

AND IN SOME OF THESE AREAS, WE HAVE THE ASPHALT RESIDENTIAL STREETS WITH BAR DITCHES ON THE SIDES.

AND WE'VE HAD ALL SORTS OF DRAINAGE ISSUES IN THESE AREAS.

AND WE'RE TRYING TO UPGRADE THESE DRAINAGE SYSTEMS FOR THE SUBDIVISION.

THIS PROJECT IS ANTICIPATED TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION IN APRIL OF 2023.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE LAST ONE ON THE SUBDIVISION'S IS MONTCLAIR NO.

TWO AND THREE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS OFF OF LA JOLLA DRIVE.

AGAIN, IT'S A LITTLE BIT SMALLER SCALE THAN SOME OF THE OTHER PROJECTS.

THIS ONE IS DEPENDENT ON TXDOTS, DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS ON I635 THAT THEY'RE RECONSTRUCTING RIGHT NOW.

AND SO WE'RE ANTICIPATING THAT WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO BEGIN THIS ONE IN FEBRUARY OF TWENTY TWENTY THREE IN HOPES THAT THEY ALREADY HAVE THEIR DRAINAGE SYSTEMS ALREADY CONSTRUCTED THROUGH THIS AREA.

WE DO HAVE A NUMBER OF FLOODED ADDRESSES IN THIS AREA.

I BELIEVE THERE'S I CAN'T REMEMBER HOW MANY HOMES ALONG LA JOLLA DRIVE FLOODED, BUT WE DO HAVE A LOT OF FLOODING IN THIS AREA AND IT JUST DOESN'T HAVE THE ADEQUATE DRAINAGE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS PRIOR TO STREET REPLACEMENT WERE REQUESTING SOME FUNDING.

THIS WAS PUT INTO THE NINETEEN BOND PROGRAM WHEN THE STREET DEPARTMENT PROCEEDS WITH RE CONSTRUCTION OF SOME OF THE RESIDENTIAL STREETS IN GARLAND.

WE ALREADY HAVE A LIST OF STUDIED AREAS WHERE THESE STREETS REQUIRE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS, WHETHER WE'RE NEEDING TO ADD SOME INLETS OR NEEDING TO ADD A LITTLE BIT OF PIPE UP ONE STREET AND CONNECT IT TO A STORM SEWER SYSTEM.

MUCH LIKE THESE LARGER SCALE DRAINAGE PROJECTS, WE TRY TO UPGRADE THE STORM DRAINAGE SYSTEM OF SOME OF THESE OLDER STREETS AS THE STREET DEPARTMENT REPLACES STREETS.

SO WE'RE REQUESTING SIXTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS IN AHEAD OF TRYING TO CONSTRUCT SOME OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS, THESE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS WHILE THEY HAVE THE STREET TORN UP.

AND WE CAN GET IN THERE AND HAVE THE DRAINAGE SYSTEMS INSTALLED AT THE SAME TIME.

NEXT SLIDE.

DRAINAGE PARTICIPATION PROGRAM, THIS IS WHAT WE TYPICALLY HAVE AS OUR 50 50 COST SHARE PROGRAM FOR EROSION ISSUES ALONG CREEKS AND DRAINAGE WAYS.

SECOND BULLET POINT HERE, STAFF IS PREPARING A NEW CONTRACT FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF EROSION PROTECTION PROJECTS OR PRODUCTS EXCUSE ME, FOR A MORE COMPETITIVE BID.

RIGHT NOW WE HAVE ONE PRODUCT, WHICH IS OUR OF YOU HAVE SEEN ALONG CREEK CHANNELS IN YOUR DISTRICTS AND WHERE WE'VE

[01:00:07]

PIGGYBACKED ONTO DUNCANVILLE'S CONTRACT FOR MANY YEARS FOR THIS PRODUCT.

BUT WHAT WE'VE COME ACROSS IS THAT THE COST OF THESE WALLS ARE INCREASING AS THE DEMAND FOR THIS TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION.

AND SO FEWER AND FEWER PEOPLE ARE PARTICIPATING WITH THESE DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS IN PARTICIPATION.

SO WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS BID MAYBE THREE DIFFERENT VARIOUS TYPES OF WALLS TO GIVE FIRST, THE CUSTOMERS, THE CITIZENS OF GARLAND, AN OPTION OF THE TYPE OF WALL THAT THEY'RE LOOKING AT AND NOT JUST THE SAME OLD, SAME OLD.

AND THEN THE SECOND IS THAT IN HOPES THAT WE WOULD HAVE COMPETITIVE BIDS, THAT WE COULD GET A MORE AFFORDABLE TYPE OF WALL SYSTEM THAT IS STILL FUNCTIONING AT A HIGH RATE, AS WELL AS ALLOWING THEM TO HAVE A CHOICE.

SO WITH THAT, WE'RE HOPING TO HAVE A LOT MORE PARTICIPATION AND POSSIBLY WE'RE EXPECTING PEOPLE TO COME BACK THAT DIDN'T PARTICIPATE IN THE LAST FEW YEARS NOW WANTING TO PARTICIPATE AGAIN BECAUSE IT'S MORE AFFORDABLE.

BUT AGAIN, THIS IS PART OF THE NINETEEN BOND PROGRAM AND THIS IS AN ONGOING PROJECT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE LOCAL FLOODING PROGRAM, WE HAVE A NUMBER OF PROJECTS THAT I'VE LISTED HERE THAT ARE IN VARIOUS STAGES OF EITHER DESIGN WELL SOME OF THEM ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

SOME ARE IN DESIGN AND ALMOST READY TO BID AND READY TO GO TO CONSTRUCTION.

AND THEN OTHERS WE ARE STILL PACKAGING TOGETHER TO GO INTO MORE OF A DETAILED DESIGN.

SOME OF THEM WERE STUDIES THIS TIME LAST YEAR, AND NOW WE'RE PACKAGING SOME OF THEM TOGETHER TO GO INTO DESIGN AND THEN CONSTRUCTION TO FOLLOW SHORTLY AFTER OR EARLY NEXT YEAR.

SO ON THIS ONE, WE'RE ASKING FOR 2.85 MILLION.

SO THESE ARE LARGE.

SOME OF THEM ARE SOME PRETTY GOOD SIZED DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS WITH WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO WITH OUR LOCAL FLOODING PROGRAM.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

FLOOD PRONE PROPERTIES, THERE'S FUNDING TO PROVIDE FOR THE PURCHASE OF FREQUENTLY FLOODED PROPERTIES OR OTHER PROPERTIES LOCATED IN THE FLOOD PLAINS, SEVERELY DAMAGED DUE TO EROSION.

STAFF IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON A DRAFT FOR A NEW CITY POLICY TO BE ADOPTED BY CITY COUNCIL AT SOME POINT AND AGAIN RIGHT NOW, WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY NINE THOUSAND.

AND THAT'S MAINLY TO GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE HAVE THE CITY POLICY.

AND IF THERE'S ANY INTEREST AFTER THE CITY POLICY IS PRODUCED, THEN WE CAN START THE EVALUATION PROCESS OF SOME OF THESE PROPERTIES THAT WE'RE PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE SUMMARY OF DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS FROM YOUR 04 BOND PROGRAM AN THE COS TOTALING ABOUT FOUR POINT SEVEN EIGHT MILLION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

IN THE 19 BOND PROGRAM FOR THIS NEXT YEAR, WE'RE REQUESTING EIGHT POINT EIGHT TWO FIVE MILLION FOR THE PROJECTS THAT WE WENT OVER IN ALL THE SLIDES THAT YOU SAW THERE.

AND FINAL SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND SUMMARIZING BOTH STREET AND DRAINAGE, AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, FROM 04 AND EVEN 19 TOTAL BETWEEN ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT AND PMO OFFICE WE ARE REQUESTING FORTY FIVE POINT SEVEN ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN PROJECTS THIS NEXT YEAR AND NEXT SLIDE.

WITH THAT, I'LL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE.

AGAIN, I DO BELIEVE WE HAVE COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN IN THE QUEUE.

OH UNMUTE.

IT DIDN'T TAKE.

I THOUGHT I HIT THE RIGHT THING, BUT I DID NOT.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, AND THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

WHAT A GREAT PROGRAM THIS IS.

ON SATURN SPRINGS I JUST HAD A QUICK QUESTION, AND WE MAY NOT KNOW AT THIS POINT, BUT YOU MENTIONED THE BAR DITCHES IN THE AREA.

IS THE PLAN TO GO FROM BAR DITCHES TO ELIMINATE BAR DITCHES AND BRING IN SIDEWALKS AND GO TO ACTUAL UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE OR DO WE KNOW AT THIS POINT, I'M NOT 100 PERCENT CERTAIN ON THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION.

I WOULD HAVE TO CHECK TO SEE WHAT THE STUDY WAS.

I KNOW THAT THE FIRST STUDY CAME IN.

I BRIEFLY LOOKED AT IT, BUT I HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO TRULY GO OVER IT.

I WOULD HAVE TO SIT DOWN AND HAVE THAT DISCUSSION.

OK.

I DON'T KNOW IF AND I HATE TO PUT HIM ON THE SPOT, BUT RICK GALCERAN MIGHT KNOW A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN I DO ON THAT PARTICULAR PROJECT.

[01:05:01]

IS HE ON WITH US.

MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT, YES, THEY WOULD HAVE CURB GUTTER TYPE OF IMPROVEMENTS.

OK, GREAT.

WELL, THAT'S GREAT NEWS AND THANK YOU GUYS FOR THIS IS MUCH NEEDED BECAUSE OVERHILL IS IN THE PROCESS OF BECOMING UNDERHILL, AND THAT'S NEVER A GOOD SITUATION.

SO I KNOW I HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY HAPPY ABOUT IT.

AND I APPRECIATE IT I KNOW THE COMPLETION DATE ON THIS IS KIND OF AT THE BACK END OF THE BOND PROGRAM.

BUT I KNOW IT'S A LOT OF WORK, PARTICULARLY ON A BIG ONE LIKE THIS, TO REALLY TO GET IT TOGETHER.

SO I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU GUYS DOING THAT AND GETTING THIS WORK DONE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER MCNEAL.

THANK YOU MR. MAYOR.

MIKE ON THE PROPERTY THAT THE CITY WAS LOOKING AT I'M ASSUMING MOST OF THAT, IF NOT ALL OF THAT, IS RESIDENTIAL.

DO WE HAVE AN INVENTORY ON WHAT THAT MAY LOOK LIKE? ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE BUYOUT PROGRAM? CORRECT? YES.

YES, SIR.

YES.

I DON'T THINK THAT WELL WE HAVEN'T ESTABLISHED THE POLICY YET, BUT THE IDEA ORIGINALLY, I BELIEVE IN THE DISCUSSIONS IN THE NINETEEN BOND PROGRAM WERE FOR FLOODING ADDRESSES, ESPECIALLY LONG DUCK CREEK IN THESE HOUSES THAT ARE BEING INUNDATED WITH SIX FEET OF WATER DURING A LOT OF THESE STORMS THAT WERE JUST BUILT WAY BACK WHEN.

AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE FLOODPLAIN DELINEATED AT THAT TIME IN THE 40S AND 50S.

SO I THINK THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT OF THE IDEA WOULD BE MOSTLY RESIDENTIAL.

I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S ANYTHING WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE SOMETHING IN THERE ABOUT COMMERCIAL.

BUT WHEN YOU GET INTO COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS, YOU'RE LOOKING AT MORE SUBSTANTIAL BUYOUTS AND IN THE FUNDING THAT'S PROVIDED, THAT WOULD BE UP TO COUNCIL WHETHER THEY'D WANT TO INCLUDE COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS IN THAT.

THANK YOU.

THAT WAS SPOT ON.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU SIR.

COUNCILMAN AUBIN.

A LITTLE MORE DETAIL.

YEAH, JUST WANTED TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON THAT.

THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT I HAD INITIATED AND IT'S CURRENTLY IN AND THAT'S SOMETHING WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT TODAY, THAT IT'S CURRENTLY IN THE TIM COMMITTEE.

IT'S ONE OF OUR ITEMS IS TO BUILD UP SOME POLICY AROUND THIS PROGRAM.

AND WE HAVEN'T ACTUALLY STARTED THAT PROCESS.

WE'RE LOOKING AT I THINK WE'RE LOOKING AT APRIL OR MAY TO START CONSIDERING THAT AND AT THAT POINT.

AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT COULD END UP.

YOU KNOW, WE WANT TO HAVE THE POLICY READY SO THAT WHEN THE FLOODING HAPPENS, WE'RE READY TO DEAL WITH IT, WHICH MAY MEAN THAT WE WORK ON IT IN APRIL AND IT SITS FOR 10 YEARS, OR IT MAY MEAN THAT WE WORK ON IT IN APRIL AND IN MAY.

WE'RE LIKE, OH, GOSH, TIME TO DO IT.

BUT THE GENESIS AS WAS MENTIONED IS.

YOU KNOW, DUCK CREEK AND PORTIONS OF DUCK CREEK, SOME DOWN IN MY DISTRICT, SOME IN OTHER PLACES HAVE HAD A TENDENCY TO FLOOD EVERY FIVE TO 10 YEARS.

AND SO WE HAVE HOMES THAT ARE BEING BASICALLY FULLY REBUILT EVERY 5 TO 10 YEARS AND THEN AND AT SOME POINT, IT DOESN'T MAKE ECONOMIC SENSE TO TRY AGAIN TO FIX DUCK CREEK TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY OR THREE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS FOR 20 HOMES THAT FLOOD.

SO THE IDEA IS TO BUILD UP SOME POLICY AROUND THIS, THAT THOSE PROPERTIES, THE NEXT TIME THEY FLOOD WOULD BE BOUGHT OUT.

AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE A POLICY OF GENERAL APPLICATION THAT WOULD APPLY.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVEN'T TALKED ABOUT IT, BUT WOULD CERTAINLY CONSIDER WHETHER, YOU KNOW, WHETHER TO APPLY TO RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL AND WHAT LOCATIONS AND WHATNOT.

BUT THAT'S KIND OF WHERE WE ARE ON IT, WHICH IS WE'VE GOT A BUNCH OF WORK TO DO.

I HOPE THAT HELPS.

HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT IT OFFLINE AS WELL.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT, ANY MORE QUESTIONS FOR MR. POLOCEK BEFORE WE MOVE ON? ALL RIGHT VERY GOOD, THANK YOU, SIR.

AND THAT WILL MOVE US TO LET'S SEE HERE 2D TRANSPORTATION, MR. LUEDTKE.

THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE CIP PROGRAM FOR TRANSPORTATION.

I'LL GO THROUGH THE DIFFERENT PROJECTS AND A LOT OF OUR PROJECTS ARE PROGRAMS AND NOT SPECIFIC PROJECTS.

EACH PROGRAM WILL HAVE A SERIES OF PROJECTS CREATED UNDER THEM THROUGHOUT MULTIPLE YEARS.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT MOST OF OUR PROJECTS ARE.

NEXT SLIDE.

[01:10:02]

FIRST OF ALL, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS OUR BOTTLENECK IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM AS A LOT OF YOU KNOW, WE WENT THROUGH A PROCESS A FEW YEARS AGO BY IDENTIFYING POTENTIALLY 40 DIFFERENT INTERSECTIONS THROUGHOUT THE CITY THAT WERE OVERCAPACITY, CONGESTED, CAUSING A LOT OF DELAY TO MOTORISTS.

THE INITIAL FUNDING FOR THIS EFFORT WAS WAS PROVIDED BY DART THROUGH SOME GRANT FUNDS THAT WERE PROVIDED TO US.

AND THEN WE WERE ABLE TO GET AN ADDITIONAL 14 MILLION DOLLARS IN TWENTY NINETEEN BOND FUNDS TO ADD TO THAT.

SO WE'VE GOT JUST OVER 17 MILLION DOLLARS PUT TOWARDS THIS PROGRAM.

IT IS DIVIDED CURRENTLY INTO FOUR DIFFERENT PACKAGES.

THE FIRST TWO PACKAGES ARE CLOSE TO BEING COMPLETE IN TERMS OF DESIGN.

THEY SHOULD GO TO CONSTRUCTION HERE THIS YEAR.

AND THEN THE DESIGN OF PACKAGES THREE AND FOUR HAS STARTED.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO IN TWENTY TWENTY ONE WE WILL HAVE.

THERE'S SIX PROJECTS HERE, BROADWAY & I30 FOREST AND JUPITER, BUCKINGHAM AND PLANO, APOLLO AND GARLAND, CAMPBELL AND 190 AND GARLAND AND 190 THESE ARE PRIMARILY AN ALL THE BOTTLENECK PROJECTS ARE PRIMARILY ADDING TURN LANES, RIGHT TURN LANES, LEFT TURN LANES.

AND I CAN ANSWER SOME HIGH LEVEL QUESTIONS AS FAR AS WHAT'S GOING ON IN EACH ONE OF THESE.

I DON'T HAVE ALL OF THEM JUST OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD, BUT WE CAN CERTAINLY GET YOU THAT INFORMATION OFF LINE IF YOU'RE INTERESTED.

NEXT SLIDE.

IN TWENTY TWENTY TWO WE WILL HOPE TO GO TO CONSTRUCTION IN PACKAGE THREE, WHICH WOULD INCLUDE ARAPAHO SHILOH.

BUCKINGHAM AND SHILOH FIRST AND MILLER BELTLINE AND SHILOH AND GARLAND AND BELTLINE AND THEN.

NEXT SLIDE.

PACKAGE FOUR WOULD BE IN TWENTY TWENTY THREE, WHICH REALLY IS JUST FIRST STREET FROM MAIN TO AVENUE D.

BUT THIS IS BY FAR THE BIGGEST OF THE BOTTLENECK PROJECTS.

IT'S FAIRLY COMPLEX, COMPLICATED.

THERE'S A LOT OF UTILITY CONFLICTS.

IT'S PRETTY CONGESTED, NOT ONLY JUST FROM A MOTORIST STANDPOINT, BUT RIGHT OF WAY IT'S FAIRLY CONSTRAINED.

AND SO IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME TO PUT THIS TOGETHER.

NEXT SLIDE, THE NEXT ITEM IS OUR NORTH SOUTH BIKEWAY AS MOST OF YOU KNOW THIS WAS PRIMARILY PUT TOGETHER AND COMPLETED IN 2012.

BUT THERE'S TWO BRIDGES THAT WE'RE NEEDED IN ORDER TO MAKE IT SAFER TO GET ACROSS DUCK CREEK.

ONE OF THEM IS JUST NORTH OF CENTERVILLE ROAD AND THE NEXT ONE IS DOWN JUST SOUTH OF I30 AND WOULD ACTUALLY CONNECT THIS NORTH SOUTH BIKEWAY INTO MESQUITE.

THE PRIMARY FUNDING THROUGH ALL THIS HAS BEEN THROUGH THE RTR ALL THOUGH THAT WAS PART OF THE ISSUE TO WHY WE HAVEN'T FINISHED IT BEFORE NOW IS BECAUSE THERE WAS A FUNDING SHORTFALL AND WE WERE ABLE TO PARTNER WITH DALLAS COUNTY TO FINISH THOSE FUNDS AND ALSO MAKE SURE THAT THE MESQUITE CONNECTION ON THEIR SIDE IS ABLE TO BE COMPLETED SO THAT WE ACTUALLY WE WILL BE COMPLETED SO THAT YOU CAN TRAVEL ALL THE WAY FROM MESQUITE, ALL THE WAY THROUGH GARLAND, UP TO THE NORTH INTO RICHARDSON ON A BIKE PATH.

NEXT SLIDE, THE NEXT PROJECT IS THE OPERATIONAL SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS.

THIS IS A PROGRAM WE HAVE TO FUND, PRIMARILY MINOR PROJECTS, A.D.A RAMPS THAT COME UP THROUGH CITIZEN REQUESTS AND DIFFERENT ISSUES, GUARDRAILS AND VARIOUS PLACES, TURN LANES, MEDIAN OPENINGS, THINGS LIKE THAT.

THEY'LL CONTINUE THIS PROJECT.

ONE OF THE OTHER FUNDING FO THIS YEAR WOULD BE A CORRIDOR STUDY OF LYONS ROAD AND EXTENDING THAT INTO SUNNYVALE AND TRYING TO CONNECT UP WITH THEM SO THAT WE HAVE A BETTER PATH FOR CARRYING THE TRAFFIC OUT OF SUNNYVALE, UP TO I30 NEXT SLIDE.

THE NEXT ITEM IS THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL, EQUIPMENT MODERNIZATION AND CONTROL SYSTEM.

THESE PROJECTS ARE THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL SYSTEM IS ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS THAT WE MAINTAIN DAY TO DAY AND YEAR TO YEAR.

AND WE DO KEEP EQUIPMENT AND EVERYTHING RUNNING AND WORKING AND FUNCTIONING VERY WELL OVER MULTIPLE DECADES.

[01:15:01]

BUT EVENTUALLY IT DOES WEAR OUT.

AND SO THERE'S THINGS THAT HAVE TO BE REPLACED PERIODICALLY.

WE'RE IN, FOR THE MOST PART, THE STRUCTURES THAT ARE OUT THERE NOW.

WE'VE GONE THROUGH A PROGRAM OF REALLY REPLACING THOSE AND UPGRADING THE OLDER ONES OF THOSE.

THE MAIN ISSUES RIGHT NOW ARE THE CABINETS AND CONTROLLERS WE'RE GOING THROUGH AND REPLACING ALL OF THE CONTROLLERS, WHICH IS THE THE COMPUTER AT EACH INTERSECTION THAT RUNS THE LIGHTS AND COORDINATES WITH THE OTHER SYSTEM AND ENABLES US TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEM AND CHANGE THE TIMING REMOTELY.

WE ARE ALSO IN THE PROCESS OF REPLACING THE CABINETS, WHICH ARE GOING ON THIRTY TWO YEARS OLD NOW.

THEY WERE ORIGINALLY BOUGHT IN NINETEEN EIGHTY NINE.

SO IT'S COME TIME TO REPLACE THEM.

THERE'S POWER SUPPLIES AND SOME OF THE ELECTRICAL WIRING THAT'S JUST DETERIORATED OVER THE MANY DECADES THAT THEY'VE BEEN OUT THERE WORKING.

SOME OF THE OTHER ISSUES IS THAT WE'RE REALLY HAVING PROBLEMS WITH RIGHT NOW IS JUST THE WIRING THAT GOES FROM THE CABINET OUT TO THE LIGHTS AND THE INTERSECTION.

THERE'S THE INSULATION IS DETERIORATING ON THOSE.

AND SO IT CAUSES SHORTAGE CAUSES SIGNALS TO GO INTO FLASH.

AND SO WE PROGRAMED TO DO ABOUT 15 INTERSECTIONS PER YEAR AND UPGRADE ALL OF THE EQUIPMENT AT THOSE 15.

AND SO THAT'LL TAKE A NUMBER OF YEARS TO GET THROUGH ALL THOSE NEXT SLIDE.. RAILROAD CROSSING IMPROVEMENTS, WE'VE GOT FUNDING IN 2004, AND 2019, BOND FUNDS TO REPLACE RAILROAD SURFACE CROSSINGS OF RAILROADS.

OVER TIME, THE RAILROAD, FROM WHAT I'VE LEARNED, IS RAILROADS CONTINUOUSLY SINK INTO THE GROUND AND GET PRESSED DOWN BY THE ENORMOUS WEIGHT THAT IS ON RAIL CARS, AND THAT SINKS FASTER THAN WHAT THE RATE OF OUR ROADS DO.

AND SO THE THE RAILS DON'T STAY EVEN WITH THE ROAD.

IT MAKES FOR A VERY ROUGH CROSSING.

SO THIS IS A PROGRAM TO FIX THOSE CROSSINGS SO THAT YOU HAVE A SMOOTH CROSSING AT DIFFERENT PLACES.

WE'VE GOT FUNDING FOR THREE CROSSINGS THIS NEXT YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND THEN FINALLY, THIS IS ONE THAT AND ACTUALLY SEVERAL THE THE PMO OFFICE IS HELPING US WITH, BUT THIS IS OUR TRANSPORTATION, MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS FACILITY RENOVATION.

I HAD TO PRACTICE THAT A FEW TIMES BECAUSE WE JUST CALL IT THE TRAFFIC SHOP.

AND THAT'S WHERE WE IT'S NOT JUST A PLACE WHERE OUR CREWS COME IN THE MORNING AND THEN LEAVE AND THEN COME BACK IN THE AFTERNOON.

IT'S ACTUALLY A PLACE WHERE WE BUILD SIGNS.

WE HAVE A BIG SIGN SHOP THERE WHERE WE CONSTRUCT SIGNS AND THE FACES AND PRINT SIGNS.

WE ALSO HAVE A PLACE WHERE WE DO A LOT OF TESTING, A LOT OF PREP WORK FOR CABINETS, CONTROLLERS AND ALL THE ELECTRONICS THAT BEFORE THEY GO OUT IN THE FIELD, DO A LOT OF REPAIRS, DO A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS THERE.

AND SO IT'S A LARGE WORK AREA WHERE WE DO ALL THOSE THINGS.

THE BUILDING THAT WE'RE IN NOW WAS BUILT IN THE NINETEEN FIFTIES.

WE BOUGHT IT IN NINETEEN NINETY.

AND IF YOU LOOK AT IT TODAY, YOU'D FEEL LIKE YOU GO BACK IN TIME.

IT'S, I DON'T THINK IT'S REALLY BEEN UPDATED MUCH SINCE THE 1950S.

HAD SOME, MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF PAINT AND A LITTLE BIT OF CARPET.

BUT BEYOND THAT IT'S NOT MUCH.

THERE'S, WE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE BUILDING IS REALLY OUT OF DATE, DOESN'T MEET CODE, DOESN'T THE LIGHT FIXTURES WE REALLY CAN'T EVEN BUY LIGHT BULBS TO PUT IN THE LIGHTS ANYMORE.

IF YOU GO IN THERE YOU CAN TELL THAT THE LIGHTS TURN PINK AFTER A WHILE BECAUSE IT REALLY CAN'T GET THE RIGHT LIGHT BULBS FOR THE FIXTURES.

SO JUST THE RESTROOMS AREN'T ADA COMPLIANT.

ALL OF THE NETWORK EQUIPMENT IS FAIRLY OLD.

IT'S JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN THERE.

AND WHAT WE'VE BEEN GETTING WAS MUCH MORE EFFICIENT AREA, A PLACE WHERE WE'VE GOT TO UPDATE FACILITIES, INSULATION IN THE WALLS, JUST SOMETHING REALLY NICE.

AND I CAN TELL YOU, I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO YOU AND TO CERTAINLY ALL THE VOTERS THAT VOTED FOR THE FUNDS TO DO THIS, BECAUSE OUR GUYS ARE JUST REALLY EXCITED TO HAVE SOMETHING NICE, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING THAT THEY CAN FUNCTION IN WELL AND BE COMFORTABLE.

AND SO I WANT TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR PROVIDING THE FUNDING FOR THIS.

[01:20:01]

NEXT SLIDE.. THIS IS JUST A SUMMARY OF ALL OF THE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS, SO A TOTAL OF ABOUT JUST OVER ALMOST ALMOST 15 MILLION FOR THIS NEXT YEAR.

SO WITH THAT, I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD.

I BELIEVE WE'VE GOT SEVERAL PEOPLE IN THE QUEUE, COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

I JUST WANT TO ASK IF THEY'RE CONSIDERING THE RAILROAD CROSSING SOUTH OF FOREST LANE ON JUPITER WHERE DART AND THE TRAIN USE IT ALL THE TIME.

I HAD TO ALIGN MY TRUCK BECAUSE IT'S SO BAD AND I WAS WONDERING IF IT WAS ONE OF THEM THAT'S COME UP FOR CONSIDERATION NEXT YEAR.

PAUL.

I KNOW THAT ONE IS VERY BAD.

WE'VE GOTTEN A LOT OF COMPLAINTS FOR THAT OVER THE YEARS AND THAT'S DEFINITELY AT THE TOP OF THE LIST.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S ONE OF THE THREE WE'RE DOING THIS YEAR.

STEVE PROJECT.

SO I DON'T PUT HIM ON THE SPOT, BUT I CAN CHECK AND SEE IF THAT'S ONE OF THE THREE.

I DON'T THINK IT IS.

BUT I KNOW JUST FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE THAT THAT'S ONE OF THE WORST ONES IN TOWN.

SO AND BELIEVE ME, IT IS REALLY BAD BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WE USE A LOT OF HEAVY 18 WHEELERS GOING OVER THAT ALL THE TIME AND PLUS ALL THE CARS.

SO I JUST WANTED YOU ALL TO GIVE IT CONSIDERATION.

OK, THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COUNCILMAN VERA.

I WAS ON THE SAME TRAIL SAYING, SO WHAT THREE? FIRST AND WALNUT IS HORRIBLE.

BUT, SO IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT INFORMATION AND STEVE DOES, I'LL JUST REQUEST THAT IF THAT INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE AND WE HAVE THE FIRST THREE PICKED JUST TO LET US KNOW, WE DO GET CONSTANT, CONSTANT COMPLAINTS ABOUT ROUGH RAILROAD CROSSINGS.

AS I SAID TO STEVE, I AM OVERJOYED FOR THE TRANSPORTATION LONG NAME, THE TRAFFIC BUILDING GETTING RENOVATED AND YOU GUYS ABSOLUTELY DESERVE IT.

AND I'M JUST SORRY THAT ALL OF YOU HAD TO DEAL WITH IT AS LONG AS YOU HAVE.

SO I'M VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS.

I'M HAPPY THAT YOU'RE GETTING A NICER PLACE AND I'M HAPPY THAT THIS WILL BE BETTER FOR ALL OF YOUR PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE.

SO QUESTION THAT IN YOUR LIST OF THINGS.

ONE OF THE THINGS LISTED WAS THE HIGHWAY 66 TURN LANE.

IS THAT A SPECIFIC AREA? THERE'S A PARK AND THE NAME ESCAPES ME RIGHT NOW, BUT IT'S RIGHT BY THE MILANO HAT FACTORY THERE.

YEAH.

OK, SO THAT WOULD BE THE AREA OF THE TURN LANE.

RIGHT.

WELL NEEDED.

OK.

THAT WAS IT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WELL DONE.

THANK YOU MA'AM.

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

GOOD EVENING, PAUL.

HI, I'M GLAD YOU GUYS OVER AT TRANSPORTATION DIDN'T FINALLY HAVE TO REQUEST A HISTORICAL MARKER FOR YOUR OLD PLACE OVER THERE GLAD TO SEE, BECAUSE IT PROBABLY COULD HAVE PASSED.

WOULD YOU FLIP BACK TO YOUR BOTTLENECK IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM SLIDE JUST BRIEFLY I GOT A QUICK QUESTION FOR YOU ON THAT.

CARMA WILL BRING THAT BACK UP.

CARMA, COULD YOU AND I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE NUMBER AT THE BOTTOM, BUT I MISSED THAT CARMA.

IT WAS ABOUT MID PRESENTATION MIDPOINT.

KEEP GOING.

WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE THREE PACKAGES AND ONE OF THE NEXT THREE SLIDES, I GUESS.

YES, THAT'S IT.

NO GO BACK RIGHT THERE.

YES, FOR MY QUESTION IS, CAN YOU TALK BRIEFLY ABOUT THE CRITERIA FOR SELECTING THESE SITES AND ARE THERE OTHERS THAT ARE UNDER REVIEW, OR IS THIS PRETTY MUCH A

[01:25:08]

COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF THE ONES THAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW MOVING FORWARD? ONE PARTICULAR THAT'S INFAMOUS THAT REALLY COVERS TWO COUNCIL DISTRICTS.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER YOU'VE EVER TRIED TO GET OUT OF GARLAND AT CENTERVILLE AT 635 AND SEVEN IN THE MORNING GOING SOUTH, TRAFFIC STRETCHES BACK THROUGH DISTRICT FIVE AND FOUR ON CENTERVILLE.

RIGHT.

SO ANY THOUGHTS THERE? AND CAN YOU JUST BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT IS THIS PRETTY MUCH THE LATEST FOR NOW? AND TALK BRIEFLY ABOUT THE SORT OF CONDITIONS AND CRITERIA OF HOW THESE SPOTS ARE SELECTED, BECAUSE I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE WORST SPOTS IN THE CITY OF GARLAND.

AND I KNOW YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH IT.

AND I WASN'T SURE WHETHER OR NOT THE RECONSTRUCTION OF 635 WAS GOING TO DO ANYTHING TO ADDRESS IT.

SO CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT BRIEFLY PAUL.

THANK YOU.

SURE.

SURE.

AND YOU'RE RIGHT.

AND THAT ACTUALLY WAS IN ONE OF THE BOTTLENECK LOCATIONS, THE ONES THAT I'VE SHOWN YOU HERE, ARE THE ONES THAT THE CITY OF GARLAND IS GOING TO BE DOING.

AND THEY'RE MORE OR LESS RANKED IN ORDER OF PROBABLY IN LAYMAN'S TERMS. I GUESS THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK, THE ONES THAT ARE IN TERMS OF THE BEST BENEFIT FOR THE LEAST AMOUNT OF COST, NOT NECESSARILY THE LEAST COST, BUT THE BEST BENEFIT TO COST RATIO IS WHAT WE USED.

THERE ARE OTHERS THAT ARE WE'RE ON THE LIST.

AND THEY MAY BE THEY'RE SCATTERED THROUGH HERE IN TERMS OF THE BENEFIT TO COST RATIO, BUT WE'VE BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE OTHER PEOPLE PAY FOR THEM.

SO THE ONES ALONG SIX THIRTY FIVE, REALLY, ALL OF THE INTERSECTIONS ALONG, 635 OR MOST OF THEM WERE REALLY ARE JUST AS BAD OF BOTTLENECKS AS ANY OF THESE.

BUT THEY WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF WITH THE RECONSTRUCTION OF 635.

SO YEAH, CENTERVILLE AND 635 WILL BE ADDRESSED WITH THAT PROJECT.

AS YOU KNOW, IT'S ABOUT A FIVE YEAR PROJECT AND OUR PLAN IS TO REVISIT THOSE AFTER 635 OPENS TO SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING ADDITIONAL THAT WE MIGHT NEED TO DO THEN.

BUT WITH ALL OF THE CHANGES THAT ARE HAPPENING WITH SIX THIRTY FIVE, WE EXPECT THE TRAFFIC PATTERNS WILL CHANGE SOMEWHAT TOO.

SO WE DIDN'T WANT TO PRESUPPOSE WHAT IMPROVEMENTS MIGHT BE THE MOST APPROPRIATE THERE.

SO HOPEFULLY THAT ALL OF THE I MEAN, NO DOUBT THAT IT WILL BE VASTLY IMPROVED BY THE 635 RECONSTRUCTION.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF OTHER ONES THAT, LIKE MILLER AND GARLAND.

MILLER MIND THAT TXDOT IS ACTUALLY BUILDING THOSE.

THOSE WERE BOTTLENECK PROJECTS THAT WERE ON THE BOTTLENECK PROJECT LIST THAT TXDOT IS PAYING FOR.

SO THERE WERE OTHERS THAT WERE ON THE LIST HERE.

BUT LIKE I SAID, THESE ARE THE ONES THAT THE CITY OF GARLAND IS PAYING FOR THROUGH OUR BOND PROGRAM.

OK, RIGHT.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU SIR.

CARMA WE NEED TO BRING THE PRESENTATION? THERE WE GO.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S SEE HERE, ANY MORE QUESTIONS FOR MR. LUEDTKE? I SEE NONE.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL, I'D LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND GET THROUGH ONE MORE PRESENTATION, SO THAT WILL BRING US TO 2E ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUNDING.

MR. THIS IS RICK GALCERAN.

IS THAT GOOD EVENING.

IN THIS YEARS CIP THERE ARE SEVERAL PROJECTS ASSOCIATED WITH OUR DOWNTOWN REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.

THREE OF THEM WILL HAVE THE IMMEDIATE FOCUS FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS.

THE FIRST PROJECT, IF YOU CHANGE THE SLIDE.

THE FIRST PROJECT IS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS ON STREETS AND INTERSECTIONS IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING THE DOWNTOWN PLAZA.

IN 2018, COUNCIL APPROVED CONCEPT PLANS FOR WIDER SIDEWALKS, NARROWER STREETS AND INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS.

AND INFRASTRUCTURE AND PARKING CONCEPT PLAN WAS MERGED WITH THE CONCEPT OF

[01:30:02]

THE PLAZA WITHIN THE SQUARE, AND IN IT THEIR DESIGN WILL INCORPORATE ALSO SOME OF THE CONSTRUCTION PHASING TO TAKE PLACE.

DETAILED DESIGN WILL BE COMPLETED LATER THIS YEAR, FOLLOWED BY BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION THEREAFTER.

THE NEXT PAGE.

THE SECOND PROJECT IS A REDESIGN OF THE DOWNTOWN PLAZA ITSELF.

THIS PROJECT WAS APPROVED IN THE 04 BOND PROGRAM.

AN ADDITIONAL FIVE MILLION WAS APPROVED IN THE 19 BOND PROGRAM COUNCIL APPROVED THE CONCEPT PLAN IN APRIL OF TWENTY TWENTY AND DESIGNED AGAIN RIGHT AFTER.

DETAILED DESIGN WILL BE COMPLETED THIS YEAR WITH BIDDING AND CONSTRUCTION FOLLOWING.

IT WILL BE DONE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SURROUNDING INFRASTRUCTURE.

AN INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS THE TOTAL PROJECT COST INCREASE THIS YEAR, WHICH IS REFLECTED IN THE TIF PROJECT PLAN, IN THE TREE MITIGATION FUND.

THE TREE MITIGATION FUND WILL ALLOW US TO INCORPORATE MORE MATURE LANDSCAPING.

THIS WOULD ALLOW US TO MAXIMIZE THE IMMEDIATE IMPACT ON THE PLAZAS OPENING DAY.

THIS PROJECT AIMS TO ACTIVATE THE DOWNTOWN PLAZA, PROMOTE PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT, SPUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OR INVESTMENT.

IN SUPPORT OF OUR CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT, GROWING RESIDENTIAL AREA DOWNTOWN.

THE REDESIGN WILL RAISE THE PLAZA STREET LEVEL AND CREATE SPACE TO HOST A WIDE VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES AND PROGRAMING.

NEXT PAGE.

THE DOWNTOWN STREETSCAPES AND REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS AN ONGOING PROGRAM TO UPDATE THE STREETSCAPES IN DOWNTOWN.

THAT WILL BE CONSISTENT WITH OUR URBAN DESIGN STANDARDS.

VOTERS APPROVED FOUR POINT SIX MILLION IN THE NINETEEN BOND PROGRAM FOR STREETSCAPES WITHIN THE BROADER AREA OF DOWNTOWN, WHICH WILL HELP US TO FINISH OUT PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENTS FOR A 15 BLOCK OF STREETSCAPES.

THESE ARE THE AREAS REFLECTED IN ORANGE AND PURPLE ON THE MAP.

THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE BROADER AREA STREETSCAPES IS OCCURRING IN CONJUNCTION WITH A DOWNTOWN SQUARE IN THE INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS ON THE STREETS SURROUNDING.

NEXT PAGE.

ANOTHER VITAL PROGRAM ARE THE ENHANCEMENTS FOR THE FIRST STREET CORRIDOR ON MAIN STREET BETWEEN MILLER ROAD AND SEVENTY EIGHT, A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN PHASE WILL DEVELOP ALTERNATIVES FOR STREET SCAPE IMPROVEMENTS BETWEEN AVENUE D TO MILLER FOR USE AND CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS.

ENHANCEMENTS BETWEEN AVENUE D AND SEVENTY EIGHT WILL OCCUR IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BOTTLENECK AND INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT PROJECT.

NEXT PAGE.

DETAILED DESIGN IS UNDERWAY FOR THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE INFRASTRUCTURE ON STREETS AND STREETSCAPE PROJECTS AND WILL TRANSITION INTO BIDDING FOR CONSTRUCTION LATER THIS YEAR FOR AN ANTICIPATED COMPLETION DATE OF TWENTY TWENTY THREE.

THE DOWNTOWN GATEWAYS ARE COMPLETE, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE GATEWAY AT MAIN AND FIFTH, WHICH WILL RESUME IN LATE IN TWENTY TWENTY TWO TO COINCIDE WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AROUND THE SQUARE.

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN IS UNDERWAY FOR THE COMMERCIAL CORRIDOR REVITALIZATION.

AND THAT CONSTRUCTION IS ANTICIPATED IN LATER ON NEXT YEAR.

IN TWENTY TWO.

NEXT PAGE.

VOTERS APPROVED TWENTY FIVE MILLION IN THE 19 BOND PROGRAM TO FACILITATE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMERCIAL CORRIDORS, RETAIL CENTERS, MULTIFAMILY AND INDUSTRIAL AREAS, FUNDS SHOWN HERE ON THIS LINE FOR TWENTY ONE ARE A PLACEHOLDER FOR THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR THOSE OPPORTUNITIES DEBT WOULD NOT BE ISSUED UNTIL

[01:35:02]

THOSE PROJECTS ARE IDENTIFIED, NEXT PAGE.

14 MILLION WAS ADDED IN 1918, I'M SORRY.

ESSENTIAL TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS, THERE ARE NO IMMEDIATE PLANS AT THIS TIME.

AND SO THEREFORE YOU CAN SEE THAT THERE'S A ZERO ANTICIPATED REFLECTION FOR TWENTY ONE NEXT PAGE.

SO HERE WE HAVE AGAIN THE SUMMARY OF THE FUNDING FOR THESE PROJECTS, AS NOTED FOR THIS YEAR, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

THOSE PROJECTS JUST LISTED IS FIVE POINT FIVE MILLION.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL OPEN UP ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

VERY GOOD.

LET'S SEE IF WE'VE GOT ANYBODY IN THE QUEUE.

ANY QUESTIONS FROM MR. GALCERAN ON THIS ITEM.

I SEE NONE, WHICH MEANS IT SOUNDS LIKE EVERYBODY IS READY TO TAKE A BREAK.

NO QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, RICK.

APPRECIATE IT.

LOTS OF GOOD STUFF IN THERE.

ALL RIGHT.

WITH THAT COUNCIL, WE WILL TAKE A SHORT RECESS.

LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY BACK ONLINE AT 7:45 PLEASE.

7:45.

GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME BACK.

WE ARE COMING BACK FROM RECESS.

WE ARE IN A SPECIAL MEETING ON JAN.

I THINK IT'S THE 19TH, 2021.

IT'S A SPECIAL MEETING FOR THE REVIEW OF OUR CIP PROJECT BUDGET.

AND WE ARE TO ITEM 2F PARKS, RECREATION AND CULTURAL ARTS, MR. HESSER, THANK YOU, SIR.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL WE HAVE QUITE A FEW TO GO THROUGH HERE.

SO I'M GOING TO GO FAIRLY QUICKLY AND THEN BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

YES SIR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, CARMA.

SO THIS IS PHASE TWO OF THE INITIAL PROGRAM FOR GRANGER RECREATION CENTER, IMPROVEMENTS WHAT'S BEING DESIGNED AS WE SPEAK IS THE PHASE 2 GRANGER ANNEX RENOVATION.

THIS IS KIND OF A FUN LITTLE PROJECT THAT'S GOING TO INCLUDE A LOT OF REALLY NEEDED RENOVATIONS FOR ADA ACCESS AND THE RESTROOMS, KITCHEN IMPROVEMENTS, FLOORING, WINDOWS, UPDATED FURNISHINGS, AND THEN A NEAT OPPORTUNITY OUT THE BACK SIDE OF THIS PROJECT AND EXTEND A PATIO IN A COVERED SHADED AWNING AREA ON THREE SIDES OF THE BUILDING TO REALLY EXTEND THE USABLE SPACE OF THIS BUILDING.

NEXT, PLEASE.

AUDUBON RECREATION CENTER EXPANSION, AS EVERYONE KNOWS, THIS ONE'S WELL UNDERWAY, CONSTRUCTION IS MOVING ALONG ON SCHEDULE.

SO WE HAVE FUNDING IN THIS YEAR'S BUDGET TO CONTINUE FOR THAT SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION THIS YEAR.

BASICALLY FOR A FIVE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET EXPANSION OF THE FACILITY.

THAT INCLUDES NEW FITNESS AREA, EXPANDING THE FOOTPRINT AND USABILITY OF MULTIPURPOSE ROOMS, RESTROOMS, FLOORING, BETTER LOBBY AND CONTROL DESK AREA.

AGAIN, ANOTHER KIND OF A TREND WE'RE SEEING IN REC CENTERS RIGHT NOW IS THAT EXTERIOR USABLE SPACE THAT'S SHADED THAT IT CAN BE AN EXTENDED PROGRAMING SPACE OR RENTAL SPACE EVENT SPACE KIND OF THING, AND THEN A LU PROJECTION SYSTEM IN THE GYM, WHICH IS BASICALLY A GIANT PROJECTOR ON THE WALL OF THE REC CENTER OR OF THE GYM, RATHER.

THAT IS AN INTERACTIVE ACTIVITY BASED KIND OF GIANT VIDEO GAME.

NEXT, PLEASE, GALE FIELDS, RECREATION CENTER.

THIS IS ALSO KIND OF SOME OLDER BOND FUNDS AND MISCELLANEOUS FUNDS THAT ARE PROVIDING SOME MUCH NEEDED UPGRADES HERE FOR APPROVING THE FINISHES AND FIXTURES, KITCHEN IMPROVEMENTS AND OTHER OUTDOOR PATIO SPACE TO EXPAND ITS FUNCTIONALITY, GYM FLOOR AND SOME OTHER NEEDED ITEMS. NEXT, PLEASE, HOLLABAUGH RECREATION CENTER, THIS DESIGN IS UNDERGOING AS WE SPEAK AGAIN, THIS WILL BE ADDING A GYMNASIUM, KITCHEN UPGRADES, UPDATED FINISHES AND BEING ABLE TO COORDINATE WITH THE LIBRARY.

AND NOW THAT THAT'S AN APPROVED PROJECT TO MOVE FORWARD ON THE SAME SITE BEFORE, JUST KIND OF A REALLY UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE CO-PROGRAMING AND EVENT SPACE FOR SOME REALLY NEAT DYNAMICS WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

NEXT, PLEASE.

[01:40:03]

ALSO UNDERWAY IN DESIGN IS A GARLAND SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER.

THIS IS APPROXIMATELY NINE HUNDRED SQUARE FOOT EXPANSION, IMPROVING THE FOOTPRINT FOR THE FITNESS AREA, MUCH NEEDED KITCHEN UPGRADES, FLOORING, LIGHTING, VARIOUS CABINET WORKS AND OTHER SPACE IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER.

NEXT PLEASE.

HOLFORD REC CENTER, THE REQUEST FOR THIS YEAR IS TO GET THE DESIGN IN FULL SWING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

I BELIEVE THE ARCHITECT CONTRACT IS CLOSE TO BEING SECURED AND SHOULD BE COMING YOUR WAY, I BELIEVE.

AND THEN SHORTLY AFTER THAT, WE WILL HAVE THE CONSTRUCTION MANAGER RISK SELECTION PROCESS AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE A DESIGN KICKOFF MEETING PROBABLY IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS OR SO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

RUNNING CONCURRENTLY WITH THE RECREATION CENTER DESIGN WILL ALSO BE THE NEIGHBORHOOD AQUATIC CENTER ADJACENT TO IT.

THE OVERALL SITE PLAN AND FOOTPRINT OF BOTH OF THOSE FACILITIES WILL BE PART OF THE OVERALL DESIGN OF THE TWO, KIND OF IN CONJUNCTION.

BUT AS YOU MIGHT RECALL FROM THE AQUATICS MASTER PLAN, SOME OF THOSE IMPROVEMENTS WILL BE A LITTLE BIT OF ROOM FOR POOL HOUSE CONCESSIONS, PARKING SPACES AND ACTIVITY, POOL PLAY AREA, POSSIBLE SLIDES INCORPORATING LAP POOLS AND OTHER INTERACTIVE PLAY FEATURES AND THE MUCH NEEDED SHADE STRUCTURES TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT'S A COMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYBODY INVOLVED.

NEXT, PLEASE.

SPLASH PAD PROGRAM, THE FUNDING THAT IS IN FOR THIS YEAR, WE WOULD LIKE TO TACKLE LON WYNNE AND EMBREE PARK.

THEN FOLLOWED BY THE NEXT BUDGET SEASON, WOULD BE WATSON PARK.

AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS, IS THAT, AGAIN, THAT PARK IS A CONGLOMERATION OF FUNDS THAT AWAITS THE TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE GRANT STATUS.

NEXT, PLEASE.

THIS ONE IS THE DESIGN PHASE FOR TUCKERVILLE PARK DEVELOPMENT, THIS PHASE ONE WOULD INCLUDE THE EXPLORATION OF FUTURE PARK AMENITIES SUCH AS TENNIS PICKLEBALL, OTHER POSSIBLE PARK USES.

SHOULD THIS PROJECT BE APPROVED AND GO FORWARD WE WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN THE PUBLIC INPUT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

NEXT, PLEASE.

AS EVERYONE KNOWS, RICK ODEN PARK IS UNDERWAY EVERYONE, I THINK, HAD A GOOD EXPERIENCE AT THE GROUNDBREAKING AND LOTS OF GROUND WAS BROKEN, OBVIOUSLY.

SO THE SKATE PARK IS WELL UNDERWAY.

BUT THE FUNDING FOR THIS, AS YOU SEE HERE, WILL ACCOMPLISH LARGELY WHAT IS TO THE NORTH OF THE TENNIS CENTER THEN, FOLLOWED BY CONTINUING ON FURTHER SOUTH OF THE TENNIS CENTER THE FOLLOWING YEAR.

NEXT, PLEASE.

FUNDING TO COMPLETE THE SKATE PARK FACILITY THAT IS SCHEDULED TO COMPLETE IN DECEMBER OF THIS YEAR, SO THIS IS JUST THE ADDITIONAL FUNDING ALLOCATED FOR THAT.

NEXT, PLEASE.

SO A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE RICK ODEN PARK JUST TO REFRESH FOR EVERYBODY'S MEMORY YOU SEE THE VARIOUS BUCKETS THAT ARE ALLOCATED AND APPROVED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF RICK ODEN PARK AND THE SKATE BOARD FACILITY.

NEXT, PLEASE.

THE LAND ACQUISITION BUDGET LINE ITEM, THIS ONE IS ESSENTIALLY SOME PREVIOUSLY APPROVED FUNDS, I BELIEVE, FROM 04 FOR LAND ACQUISITION.

THERE IS NOT A SPECIFIC PROJECT NECESSARILY IN MIND.

THIS WOULD BE KIND OF MAKING MONEY AVAILABLE AS OPPORTUNITIES ARISE AND AS DIRECTED BY CITY COUNCIL, PARTICULARLY IN CONCERT WITH THE PARKS AND RECREATION MASTER PLAN.

NEXT, PLEASE.

AUDUBON PARK PICNIC AREA PAVING REPLACEMENT.

SO ESSENTIALLY YOU CAN SEE KIND OF THIS DASHED OUTLINE AREA.

THIS IS A ROAD THAT IS IN VERY POOR CONDITION, HAS BEEN FOR SOME TIME.

AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT REPLACED.

SO BASICALLY, THE FUNDING THAT YOU SEE HERE IS TO FINISH OUT THE DESIGN OF THAT PROJECT.

WE'RE PRETTY CLOSE TO HAVING THAT DESIGN.

WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS PROJECT CONSIDERED FOR COMPLETION ABOUT THE SAME TIME WE'RE WORKING ON THE SURF AND SWIM PROJECT.

NEXT, PLEASE.

THE GATEWOOD PICNIC PAVILION, THESE FUNDS ARE FOR THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF UPDATING THE GATEWOOD ACTUALLY CAMP GATEWOOD PICNIC PAVILION THERE ON DUCK CREEK, INCLUDING USING SOME BOND FUNDS FOR THE PARK ROAD SYSTEM PROGRAM.

[01:45:02]

THE PARKING LOTS IN PRETTY ROUGH CONDITION.

WE REALLY NEED TO IMPROVE THE ADA ACCESSIBILITY AT THE SAME TIME.

SO THOSE FUNDS ARE BEING COMBINED TO MOVE THIS PROJECT FORWARD.

DESIGN IS IN PROGRESS FOR THIS ONE AS WELL.

NEXT, PLEASE.

WINDSURF BAY PARK, THIS IS ESSENTIALLY FUNDING THAT PROVIDES THE DESIGN FOR SHORELINE EROSION CONTROL, YOU SEE THERE THE DASHED LINE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS PROJECT, OBVIOUSLY CONTINGENT UPON ADDITIONAL FUNDING AND FUTURE PLANS.

NEXT PLEASE.

PEDESTRIAN AND BIKE BRIDGES CROSSING, AT DUCK CREEK THIS FUNDING FOR THIS PROJECT, AS YOU CAN SEE, THE TWO CIRCLED AREA ARE TO REPLACE TWO AGING LOW WATER CROSSING AREAS ON A HIGHLY, HIGHLY USED DUCK CREEK TRAIL, AS EVERYONE KNOWS, WITH AN UPDATED, ELEVATED PREFAB STEEL BRIDGE AND ABUTMENTS.

NEXT, PLEASE.

THIS PROJECT IS A COUPLE OF PROJECTS ROLLED UP INTO ONE, THE LARGEST ONE OF WHICH IS THE IMPROVEMENTS FOR DRAINAGE STRUCTURES THAT YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE THAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN IN PREVIOUS BUDGETS, THE SUSTAINED A LOT OF DAMAGE AT THE MEADOW CREEK BRANCH AREA, WHICH IS A TRIBUTARY OF DUCK CREEK, WHICH IS THE BIGGER CHUNK OF THE FUNDING IN CONJUNCTION WITH STORMWATER AND ENGINEERING.

AND THEN A SMALLER CHUNK IS GOING TO BE AT ARNOLD AND CAROL ABLON PARK.

THERE IS AN OUTFALL, A LOW WATER CROSSING IN AN OUTFALL STRUCTURE THAT WAS PART OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THAT POND MANY YEARS AGO.

IT IS FAILING AND BEING UNDERMINED BY THE FLOWING WATER AND SO THAT THIS PROJECT WILL FIX THAT AND BRING THE WATER LEVEL BACK UP WHERE IT'S INTENDED TO BE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

JOHN PAUL JONES PARK IMPROVEMENTS, SO THERE SOME FUNDING THAT IS ALLOCATED, AS WE DISCUSSED AT THE PREVIOUS COUNCIL, WE WOULD LIKE TO LEVERAGE THOSE FUNDS FOR THE BOAT RAMP AND THE PARKING IMPROVEMENTS TO APPLY FOR TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE BOATING ACCESS GRANT, WHICH WILL ESSENTIALLY MORE THAN DOUBLE OUR FUNDS AVAILABLE TO REALLY CREATE A DESTINATION PARK FOR THE RESIDENTS AND VISITORS FROM ALL AROUND.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

MONTGOMERY PARK, THIS SLIDE REFLECTS THE REQUEST TO ALLOCATE FUNDS, I BELIEVE, FROM TIF TWO TO INCLUDE MONTGOMERY PARK, AND THOSE RENOVATIONS ARE WELL NEEDED AND WELL DESERVED TO INCLUDE A NEW RESTROOM, THE PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT AND TURF RENOVATION FOR A HIGHLY, HIGHLY USED SOCCER AREA.

NEXT, PLEASE.

THIS ONE IS ALSO TIF FUNDED THE DOWNTOWN RESTROOM.

THIS PROJECT, ALSO PREVIOUSLY DISCUSSED, WOULD PROVIDE THE ABILITY TO PUT A NEW PERMANENT DOWNTOWN RESTROOM, HOPEFULLY COINCIDING WITH WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE OVERALL DOWNTOWN IMPROVEMENTS THAT WOULD SERVE NOT ONLY DAILY TRAFFIC, BUT ALSO HANDLE A LARGE MAJORITY OF OUR SPECIAL EVENT NEEDS WITHOUT HAVING TO BRING THOSE AWESOME PLASTIC RESTROOMS OUT.

NEXT, PLEASE.

THE FUTSAL COURT, SO AFTER DILIGENT RESEARCH AND DIGGING AROUND OF HOW TO PROPERLY CONSTRUCT THESE, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE ADEQUATE FUNDING TO GO ALONG WITH THE WATSON PARK IMPROVEMENTS HOWEVER WE DON'T BELIEVE THAT THERE WILL BE ENOUGH TO HANDLE THE KINGSLEY PROJECT AT THIS TIME.

HOWEVER, WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT THAT HERE VERY SHORTLY IN THE COMING OPERATING BUDGET THROUGH ADDITIONAL CDBG FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES.

NEXT, PLEASE.

DUCK CREEK GREENBELT EXTENSION, THIS PROJECT IS FOR FUNDING THAT WILL COMPLETE THE DESIGN OF THE HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL SOUTH OF I30 CORRIDOR BETWEEN BELTLINE AND ABLON, CONSTRUCTION OF THIS WILL BE CONTINGENT UPON THE ADDITIONAL FUNDING THAT WAS PARTIALLY SUPPORTED BY THE SEVENTH CALL FOR DALLAS COUNTY, MCIP.

WE MAY NEED TO CONSIDER GOING AFTER ADDITIONAL INTERGOVERNMENTAL FUNDING, PERHAPS ANOTHER CALL OR HAPPENS.

SO NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENTS, I'M SURE EVERYONE'S FAMILIAR WITH THIS, BUT RIGHT NOW WE'RE PROVIDING THE FUNDING TO MAKE SURE THAT GROUP ONE CONSTRUCTION WILL BEGIN SOON.

WE'VE GOTTEN THE BIDS IN AND THEY'RE CURRENTLY BEING EVALUATED PRIOR TO EXECUTION AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE ON WITH GROUP TWO AND GROUP THREE.

I WOULD ANTICIPATE YOU'LL SEE THE PHASE ONE GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE ON ONE OF THE FEBRUARY AGENDAS TO COMPLETE THE FIRST NINE IN GROUP ONE THAT YOU SEE THERE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

[01:50:03]

SPORTS FIELD AND PARK RENOVATION PROGRAM, THIS IS A KIND OF A CATCH ALL BUCKET FOR A GREAT DEAL OF NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS IN THE RESTROOM AND CONCESSION CATEGORY.

WE ANTICIPATE BEING ABLE TO TACKLE SOME AUDUBON RESTROOM IMPROVEMENTS, BRADFIELD RESTROOM AND CONCESSION, CENTRAL PARK RESTROOM AND CONCESSION HOLFORD RESTROOMS AND CONCESSION ALSO INCLUDES THE FUNDING FOR THE RICK ODEN BASEBALL FIELD LIGHTING AND NEW RESTROOMS. AND THEN ESSENTIALLY, ALL OF THOSE SAME PARKS ARE ALSO SLATED TO RECEIVE SOME ADDITIONAL SHADE AROUND THE BLEACHERS AND SPORTS FIELD AREA.

THAT LIST, I THINK, MAY GROW AS WE SEE BIDS START TO COME IN.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS IS ANOTHER ONE IS KIND OF A CATCHALL BUCKET FOR A GREAT DEAL OF NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS FOR PARKING AND PARK ROADS, THE 2021 IMPROVEMENTS YOU'LL SEE THERE ARE GRANGER, SOME OF WHICH ARE UNDERWAY, EMBREE PARKING CODY CULLOM TINSLEY AND SEVERAL ALONG THE DUCK CREEK TRAIL CORRIDOR AS WELL.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

TRAIL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, THE ONES YOU SEE HERE WITH AN ASTERISK ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE RECEIVED DALLAS COUNTY FUNDING SUPPORT.

SO THAT WAS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO BASICALLY DOUBLE OUR BUDGET.

SO APPROXIMATELY SEVEN OR EIGHT MILLION FROM THE BOND PROGRAM AND ANOTHER SEVEN OR EIGHT MILLION FROM THE COUNTY AND MCIP PROGRAM SO IT ALLOWS US TO REALLY KNOCK OUT SOME SUBSTANTIAL TRAIL PROJECTS AND NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AND THEN AFTER THAT, THERE'S A SUMMARY, I BELIEVE OR WE CAN GO STRAIGHT TO QUESTIONS LET'S GO TO QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. HESSER? WE'VE GOT SEVERAL FOLKS QUEUING UP, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

WITH ALL OF THAT WONDERFULNESS, I REALLY ONLY HAD HAD ONE QUESTION BECAUSE I'VE LOOKED AT THIS UNTIL I'M ABOUT SNOW BLIND, BUT ANDY I DID NOT SEE WITH THE SENIOR CENTER, WINDOWS.

SO I HAVEN'T BEEN INSIDE THE SENIOR CENTER SINCE WE CLOSED IT SO BUT I DIDN'T SEE THAT EVEN LISTED AS BEING SOMETHING THAT HAD ALREADY BEEN ACCOMPLISHED.

SO WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH WINDOWS? BECAUSE THEY ALL LEAK AND WE HAD, I BELIEVE, VOTED TO HAVE THEM REPLACED.

SO THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF IMPROVEMENTS THAT ARE KIND OF SMALL LIKE THAT THAT ARE GOING TO BE ACCOMPLISHED, THAT I DIDN'T LIST OUT BECAUSE WE ARE ADDRESSING A TON OF THESE OTHER SMALL THINGS.

BUT LET ME CONFIRM OR I MAY HAVE MAYBE SHE CAN ANSWER IT MORE SPECIFICALLY THAN I CAN.

THERE SHE IS.

IT'S LIKE MAGIC.

SHE POPS UP.

I BELIEVE THE REASON IT'S NOT IN OUR CIP IS IT'S BEING COVERED THROUGH FACILITIES MANAGEMENT.

OK, AS LONG AS SOMEBODY IS COVERING IT BECAUSE THE WINDOWS BOTH LEAK AND FOG.

AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST COMPLAINTS THAT I WAS GETTING FROM THE SENIORS WHEN THEY WERE STILL ALLOWED TO BE THERE.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE ARE IT'S BEING COVERED JUST OUT OF A DIFFERENT BUDGET.

GREAT.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT WAS IT FOR ME.

THANK YOU.

AND I BELIEVE THAT'S ALSO THE CASE AT GALE FIELDS.

WE'VE HAD A COUPLE OF THOSE THAT HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE HANDLED IN THE CURRENT OPERATING BUDGET.

AND WHILE WE'RE ON THE SENIOR CENTER BEFORE I QUEUE SOMEBODY ELSE UP.

IT WAS ASKED OF ME AND I BELIEVE OR DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS, WILL THE EXPANSION IS THAT GOING TO MOVE INTO THE AREA WHERE THE VETERANS TRIBUTE GARDEN IS.

WE WERE OUT THERE ONE DAY FOR A VETERAN'S DAY ACTIVITY AND AT THE SAME TIME, A COUPLE OF GENTLEMEN WERE SURVEYING THE PROPERTY.

AND SO THE QUESTION CAME UP.

PRIMARY, IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE BUILDING, THE PRIMARY EXPANSION IS INTENDED TO GO TO THE RIGHT TOWARDS THE APARTMENTS.

WE HAVE INTENTIONALLY TRIED TO STAY AWAY FROM THE VETERANS GARDEN FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, OUR ABILITY TO ADD SQUARE FOOTAGE IS LIMITED TO NINE HUNDRED SQUARE FEET BECAUSE IT TRIGGERS SPRINKLER CODE CHALLENGES, WHICH REALLY IMPACTS THE BUDGET SO THAT WE DID NOT HAVE THE NEED TO GO TOWARDS THE BACK OR TO THE LEFT.

GOOD.

THAT'S A GOOD ANSWER.

THANK YOU.

NEXT UP, WE HAVE COUNCILMAN HEDRICK.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

[01:55:01]

MR. HESSER, I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT THE RESTROOM AND CONCESSION.

YOU SAID FOR HOLFORD PARK THEY'RE LOOKING AT NEW RESTROOM AND CONCESSIONS.

YES, SIR.

I'M CURIOUS ABOUT THE TIMING WITH THAT.

WITH THE NEW RECREATION CENTER GOING IN THERE AND EVERYTHING SHIFTING AROUND, I WOULD HATE TO SEE THOSE RESTROOMS AND CONCESSIONS BE PUTTING THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE WITHOUT THE COMPLETE SITE PLANNING OF THAT WHOLE PARK.

RIGHT.

SO THE RESTROOMS AND CONCESSIONS THAT ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BASEBALL FIELD AREA ARE OUTSIDE OF THE SCOPE OF THE REC CENTER AND THE AQUATIC FACILITIES.

SO THEY CAN HAPPEN INDEPENDENTLY.

WE ALSO HAVE LIGHTING FOR THE FOOTBALL PLAN TO BE REPLACED SO THEY CAN HAPPEN NOW.

AND WHILE THE DESIGN IS HAPPENING FOR THE REC CENTER.

SO THE FOOTPRINT FOR THE BASEBALL FACILITY AND THE RESTROOM CONCESSION IS NOT IMPACTED BY THE REC CENTER AND POOL.

OK, I WAS JUST WONDERING IF THE REC CENTER OR ANYTHING OR THE CONFIGURATION OF THE BALL FIELDS WERE ALL SHIFTING AROUND WITH A NEW DESIGN OR NOT.

IT AT THIS POINT WE'RE NOT SURE IF THERE'S ANY MAJOR IMPACT TO THE FIELD CONFIGURATION BECAUSE THEY'RE FAR ENOUGH AWAY FROM THE MAIN IMPACT OF WHERE IT'S BEEN DISCUSSED TO PUT THE FACILITY.

NOT TO SAY THAT THERE WON'T BE SOME IMPACT, BUT IT SHOULDN'T BE ENOUGH TO IMPACT THE RESTROOM CONCESSION.

THAT'S RIGHT IN BETWEEN THE MAIN PART OF THOSE THREE FIELDS.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU.

THIS A GREAT PROGRAM.

VERY AMBITIOUS AND I'M ABSOLUTELY THRILLED BY ALL OF THIS .

ON THE FUTSAL COURT.

LOOKING AT THAT, HOW MUCH MORE MONEY DO YOU NEED TO DO KINGSLEY? YOU SAID YOU WERE SHORT A BIT, SO IT'S I DON'T HAVE THAT NUMBER OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD AND SOME OF THEM ARE BASED ON ESTIMATES.

NOTHING HAS GONE TO BID YET.

SO THE TWO EIGHTY FOUR THAT WAS ORIGINALLY PROVIDED I'M TRYING TO DO THIS FROM MEMORY, WE'RE PROBABLY IN THE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLAR RANGE.

BUT LET ME CONFIRM THAT BECAUSE AGAIN, ALL WE HAVE IS ESTIMATES AT THIS POINT TO DO THE SLAB, THE PAINTING AND STRIPING BOARDS AND THE LIGHTING THAT GO ALONG WITH IT AND THE FOUNDATION AND SUB PREP THAT GOES WITH IT.

SO NONE OF THAT'S BEEN TECHNICALLY BID OUT YET.

WE JUST HAVE ESTIMATES.

OK, AND I KNOW WE ALSO LOOKED AT DOING SOME, AT LEAST FOR KINGSLEY, DOING SOME OTHER IMPROVEMENTS OVER THERE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THAT.

SO IS THE 284 ALL CDBG MONEY.

YES SIR.

OK, SO THIS HAS NO ACTUAL SO THERE'S NO ACTUAL BOND IMPLICATIONS FOR EITHER OF THESE.

CORRECT, AT THIS POINT? OK.

AT THE WATSON LOCATION, IT'S ESSENTIALLY AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THAT PROJECT, FIND SOME EFFICIENCIES THERE AND MAKE IT HAPPEN AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE PLAYGROUND IS GOING ON AND ALL THE OTHER IMPROVEMENTS WITH WATSON IT'S JUST A DIFFERENT BUCKET OF MONEY.

OK ON TUCKERVILLE AND RICK ODEN AND TENNIS AND ALL THAT IS.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION WHEN YOU'RE NOT READY TO HAVE IT, I DON'T KNOW WHEN Y'ALL ARE READY.

IS THAT SOMETHING THAT'S GOING TO COME DURING THIS PROCESS OR IS THE THOUGHT THAT WE APPROVE TUCKERVILLE AND THEN THAT CONVERSATION GETS HAD AFTER PUBLIC INPUT? I THINK MR. BRADFORD HAS MORE ON THAT COUNCILMAN.

YES, ANDY I BELIEVE WE'RE READY TONIGHT TO DISCUSS THE OPTIONS WE'VE DEVELOPED ON TUCKERVILLE.

AM I CORRECT? IT'LL TAKE ME A MINUTE TO PULL THAT UP.

I DON'T BELIEVE CARMA HAS THAT.

ANDY I JUST SENT IT TO HER, SO I GRABBED IT AND SENT IT TO HER SO SHE'LL HAVE IT.

FANTASTIC.

WE CAN ABSOLUTELY DISCUSS IT.

SO MAYOR AS SOON AS WE'RE THROUGH WITH QUESTIONS ON THE PRESENTATION SO FAR, WE'LL PULL THAT UP.

OH, OK.

SO YOU WANT TO COME BACK TO THAT? YES, SIR.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

THANK YOU.

VERY GOOD.

ALL RIGHT.

GOT A FEW MORE PEOPLE STILL IN THE QUEUE.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

THANK YOU, SIR.

TWO QUICK THINGS, THE FIRST IS I JUST WANT TO SAY I APPRECIATE THE PHASING THAT YOU GUYS HAVE DEVELOPED FOR THE PLAYGROUND'S.

LAST YEAR WE TALKED ABOUT THIS DURING CIP.

WE NOTED THAT MANY OF THE PLAYGROUND'S IN FOUR AND FIVE HAD BEEN REMOVED AND NEVER PUT BACK.

OF COURSE, I'VE GOT QUITE A BIT OF PLAYGROUND STOCK FROM THE 80S, BUT TO ME, IT'S

[02:00:04]

MORE IMPORTANT THAT WE FILL AN EMPTY GROUND BEFORE WE WORRY ABOUT REPLACING SOMETHING WE'VE ALREADY GOT.

SO I SAID AT THE TIME, AND I REITERATE, I'M MORE THAN HAPPY TO HOLD MY PROJECTS UNTIL TWENTY, TWENTY TWO, WHICH IS WHERE WE'RE SET.

SO I THINK WE'RE DOING RIGHT BY THE CITIZENS THERE.

SECOND THING IS TORNADO DAMAGE.

WE HAD THE FENCING AT THE TENNIS COURTS MANGLED AND TAKEN OFF IN THE TORNADO.

AND I KNOW THAT WE HAD BEEN SHORT OF FUNDING TO REPLACE THAT COURT FENCING.

DO WE HAVE AN UPDATE ON WHEN WE CAN EXPECT TO SEE THAT RESTORED? SO WE'VE GOT SOME BUDGET ESTIMATES TO REPLACE THAT AND LOOKING FOR SOME FUNDING SOURCES BEHIND THE SCENES AT THIS POINT, SO I DON'T HAVE THAT IDENTIFIED AT THE MOMENT, BUT WE ARE WORKING TO GET THAT REPLACED.

AND WITHOUT HOLDING YOU TO THIS, NUMBER TO ME, IT'S JUST WIRE FENCING, I MEAN, WHAT DOES THAT TYPE OF FENCING USUALLY RUN US JUST VERY BALLPARK ESTIMATE ON IT.

THE LAST QUOTE THAT I SAW WAS PROBABLY AROUND FORTY TWO OR FORTY THREE THOUSAND.

SO ROUNDING UP MAYBE TO FORTY FIVE.

OK, MR. BRADFORD, IF THERE'S A POSSIBILITY OF FINDING A WAY TO FIT THAT IN, I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN SEEING THAT RESTORED JUST AS A HEY, WE'RE TRYING TO CLEAN UP THE LAST OF THE TORNADO DAMAGE.

IT'S ONE OF THE ITEMS I HAVE ON MY DISTRICT AGENDA.

AND I KNOW IT'S NOT IN MY DISTRICT AND I'M JUST STOMPING ALL OVER DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS' PARK THERE.

BUT I WANT TO GET THAT REQUEST IN.

AND THAT IS SOMETHING I'M HANDLING THROUGH THE OPERATING FUNDS.

AND SO IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU'LL HAVE TO SQUEEZE IN TO THE CIP.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THAT'S ALL I HAD.

THANK YOU SIR.

COUNCILMAN MCNEAL.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU, MR. BRADFORD AND MITCH FOR SENDING OVER THE PRESENTATION OF TUCKERVILLE.

DEFINITELY WAS INTERESTED IN THAT.

I JUST WANT TO SAY ANDY THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS PROGRAM.

I THINK IF COVID HAS SHOWN US ONE THING IS THE FACT THAT WE REALLY NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON PARKS AND REC A LITTLE BIT MORE, BECAUSE FAMILIES HAVE REALLY I KNOW WHAT WE SEE HERE IN OUR AREAS FAMILIES HAVE REALLY TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THAT WALK TIME OUTSIDE.

SO THANK YOU FOR JUST BEING REALLY, REALLY DELIBERATE IN THIS PROGRAM.

REALLY, REALLY GREAT.

THANK YOU.

HANK YOU SIR.

AND COUNCILMAN WILLIAMS. THANK YOU MAYOR.

MR. HESSER.

I'VE GOT A REAL EASY ONE FOR YOU.

I LIKE THOSE THANK YOU, SIR.

I STOPPED BY LON WYNN PARK THE OTHER DAY.

KIDS WERE OUR BOND PACKAGE AND WHAT'S IN IT.

AND ONE OF THE KIDS COUPLE OF THE KIDS MENTIONED TO ME THAT, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE GOING TO DO A LOT OF NEW STUFF.

RIGHT, FOR BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL AND STUFF.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BASKETBALL COURTS AND HOOPS AT THOSE PARKS WHERE WE HAVE THOSE? CAN YOU TALK JUST GENERALLY ABOUT I KNOW WHEN I THINK OF THAT, I KNOW LON WYNN GALE FIELDS THERE ARE A FEW OTHERS THAT HAVE VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY OLD BASKETBALL, YOU KNOW, GOT A SLAB AND A COUPLE OF GOALS A GOAL AND A HALF.

AND SOME OF THE KIDS WERE ASKING ABOUT THAT.

THEY TALKED ABOUT THAT.

THEY TALKED ABOUT SWIMMING.

AND AND THEY KNOW THE WATER PARKS GOING TO BE ADDRESSED.

BUT THEY ASK ABOUT THEY MENTIONED THE SOFTBALL FACILITIES, BUT IT'S JUST THEY DIDN'T KNOW AND DIDN'T HEAR OF ANYTHING THAT'S GOING TO BE DONE SO THEY COULD PLAY BASKETBALL.

IS THAT INCLUDED? AND I KNOW THAT'S NOT I DON'T THINK IN, QUOTE, PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT, IS IT? CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT AT ALL? RIGHT.

SO IT IS NOT NECESSARILY CALLED OUT IN PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT THAT IS ACTUAL PLAY AS A PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT PROGRAM FOR AGING PLACE STRUCTURES.

RIGHT.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT AT RICK ODEN PARK THERE'S AN EXISTING BASKETBALL SLAB THERE.

THE PLANS CALL FOR RECOATING IT RESTRIPING IT AND I BELIEVE ADDING A SECOND COURT NEXT TO IT.

THE OTHER THING THAT WE DID LAST YEAR TO ADDRESS THAT, BECAUSE I NOTICED THE SAME THING WITH THE FUNDING WE HAD AVAILABLE AT THE END OF A BUDGET SEASON, WE WENT IN AND PUT UP ALL NEW BACKBOARDS ALL NEW RIMS ALL NEW NETS, AND STRIPED ALL THE EXISTING COURTS AS WE COULD.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN COMPLETELY COATED NECESSARILY WITH GREEN OR BLUE OR WHATEVER COMPLETE COATING, BUT WE DID.

IT'S NICE TO HAVE FRESH STRIPES AND DO THAT.

THAT'S A MAINTENANCE FUNCTION.

SO WE DO TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT WHAT WE DO HAVE STAYS UP TO DATE.

AND I DON'T KNOW THAT WE REPLACED EVERY SINGLE ONE.

[02:05:01]

I'LL DOUBLE CHECK WITH LON WYNN, BUT THE INTENTION WAS TO UPDATE BACKBOARDS, RIMS, AND NETS ON ALL OF THEM.

AND DO YOU SEE THAT SAME SAME INITIATIVE BEING TAKEN PLACE AT THE OTHER FACILITIES WHERE WE HAVE SPACE FOR, OUTDOOR BASKETBALL COURTS, BECAUSE LIKE I SAID, THAT WAS JUST A GENERAL CONVERSATION.

THE KIDS BROUGHT IT UP.

SO I THOUGHT I'D IT UP SO.

SURE AND THAT'S GREAT BECAUSE IT DOES ALSO REFLECT IN THE MASTER PLAN, IT DOES LINE OUT SOME SHORT, MEDIUM AND LONG TERM RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ADDITIONAL AMENITIES.

SO THOSE ARE SOME PARK SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS, BUT THEY WILL ALL BE GOING FORWARD KIND OF SUBJECT TO FUNDING FOR BRAND NEW FACILITIES.

OK.

OK.

AND THE LAST THING.

LIGHTING, CAN YOU SPEAK TO WHEN YOU AND I SPOKE ABOUT UPGRADING OF LIGHTINGS AT OUR PARK FACILITIES, NOT RICK ODEN THAT'S NEW, BUT WHERE SOME ARE OUR OLDER PARKS? AND MOST OF THEM ARE OLDER? CAN YOU SPEAK BRIEFLY TO THE LIGHTING AND HOW LIGHTING UPGRADES WILL BE ADDRESSED? YES, SIR SO IN GENERAL, WITHOUT LOOKING AT A SPECIFIC PART, ONE OF THE THINGS WE TRY TO DO IS AS WE REDO ROADS AND PARKING LOTS AS PART OF THE PAVING PROGRAM, WE TRY TO WORK WITH GP&L TO UPDATE THAT LIGHTING TO THE NEW LED STANDARD THAT WE'VE ADOPTED SOME TIME AGO.

IF THERE ARE PROJECTS THAT ARE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE PAVING, WE HAVE TO ADDRESS THOSE SPECIFICALLY LIKE.

SO, FOR EXAMPLE, ANY TIME WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY, LIKE IN THE PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT PROGRAM, IF WE SEE THAT THERE'S A NEED, EVEN THOUGH IT'S REALLY MONEY FOR PLAYGROUNDS, IT MIGHT NEED ADDITIONAL SIDEWALKS, ACCESSIBILITY AND SECURITY LIGHTING.

SO WE LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES BASED ON BUDGET.

CAN WE ADD LIGHTING EVERY TIME WE CRACK OPEN THE GROUND, SO TO SPEAK, AND ADD PROJECTS SO WE'RE CONSTANTLY ON THE LOOKOUT FOR IT.

THERE'S NOT JUST A LINE ITEM OR A BUCKET THAT IS ASSIGNED TO ADDRESS THAT, BUT WE DO TRY TO KEEP THAT IN MIND ANY TIME WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY.

GREAT.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU MR. MAYOR.

YES, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE FUTURE OF TUCKERVILLE I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW, OUR PARKS SYSTEM IS SEEING A LOT OF ATTENTION.

AND WE TALKED ABOUT A LOT OF THAT ON BUILD GARLAND DAY.

AND SOME OF THESE YOU KNOW, THESE ARE ALL FANTASTIC PROJECTS.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE'S TWO OF THEM THAT REALLY STICK OUT FOR ME.

AND THEY'RE REALLY JUST SORT OF KIND OF ICONIC FEATURES IN OUR PARKS SYSTEM.

AND ONE IS THE THE GRANGER THE ANNEX, WHICH I KNOW PEOPLE THAT STILL LIVE HERE WHO ATTENDED SOCK HOPS THERE, SOME OF WHICH SERVED ON THIS VERY CITY COUNCIL.

SO THERE'S A LOT OF MEMORIES, A LOT OF HISTORY IN THAT FACILITY.

AND MY GUESS IS, YOU KNOW, IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WE'RE PUTTING INTO IT THAT DESERVES WHAT CAN WE DO WITH IT AND HOW WE WOULD PROVE IT.

AND MY GUESS IS WE'LL PROBABLY SPEND MORE ON THE FLOORING AND THE WINDOWS THAN WHAT THE ENTIRE BUILDING COST WAS IN NINETEEN FIFTY SEVEN.

SO THAT IS CERTAINLY ONE THAT I'M VERY HAPPY ABOUT.

AND THE OTHER ONE IS A LITTLE MORE SIMPLE THAN THAT IS THE GATEWOOD PAVILION.

YOU KNOW THAT PAVILION HAS PROBABLY HOSTED HUNDREDS OF KIDS BIRTHDAY PARTIES AND FAMILY REUNIONS AND ALL OF THAT KIND OF STUFF.

AND IT'S GREAT TO SEE THAT IT IS GOING TO GET SORT OF A NEW LIFE AND WILL CONTINUE ON, YOU KNOW, IN OUR PARKS SYSTEM AND IN OUR CITIES.

SO I'M REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THOSE TWO PROJECTS SPECIFICALLY.

BUT AT THIS POINT, LET'S GO AHEAD.

AND I'M NOT SURE CARMA IF YOU WANT TO GO AHEAD AND BRING THE TUCKERVILLE PRESENTATION UP.

THANK YOU, CARMA.

MY APOLOGIES FOR NOT GETTING THIS TO YOU SOONER.

I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS THIS.

THIS IS THERE'S BEEN A LOT TO DISCUSS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THIS PARK.

AND SO AT COUNCIL'S DIRECTION, SOME TIME AGO, WE WERE ASKED TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF A VARIETY OF SITES AND ALL SIGNS KIND OF KEPT POINTING TO HERE FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.

THE SPACES THERE, WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE LAND ACQUISITION.

THERE IS KIND OF A ROAD ACCESS PLAN AS PART OF AN ADJACENT DEVELOPMENT.

YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THERE JUST AS RIGHT COMING OFF OF 66 THERE WE WILL HAVE A SHARED ENTRYWAY WITH AN ADJACENT BUSINESS AND THEN ENTER INTO THE PARK.

SO WE WORKED WITH A CONSULTANT THAT WAS HAD SOME EXPERIENCE IN THIS AREA AND SO WE WANTED TO LOOK AT A VARIETY OF OPTIONS.

AND SO WHAT WE'RE SEEING HERE IS, OPTION ONE, WHICH WOULD BE KIND OF UTILIZING

[02:10:05]

THE FUNDS THAT ARE AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S IN THE BUDGET REQUEST WOULD BE TO INITIATE THE DESIGN BASED ON LOOKING AT THE WHOLE PARK, BUT ALSO LOOKING AT THE PHASE ONE FOOTPRINT.

SO BASED ON WHAT WE HEARD SOME TIME AGO IN THE DISCUSSION WHERE WE HAD VARIOUS PEOPLE SPEAK FROM THE TENNIS COMMUNITY, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE AT LEAST TRIED TO HEAR THAT AND INCORPORATE WHAT WE COULD WITH THE MONEY AVAILABLE IN THIS SCENARIO.

SO WHAT YOU'LL SEE HERE IS APPROXIMATELY, I BELIEVE, 10 COURTS IN THE INITIAL PHASE YOU WOULD HAVE OVER HERE TO THE SIDE, YOU'LL SEE A CLUBHOUSE IDEA AND YOU'LL HAVE KIND OF A FEATURE COURT, WHICH IS GENERALLY THE CHAMPIONSHIP COURT OR FEATURE COURT.

YOU HAVE THE ASSOCIATED PARKING THAT GOES WITH IT.

AND THEN YOU'VE GOT SPACE THERE TO THE NORTH TO CONTINUE WITH EXPANSION AND THEN SPACE TO THE WEST.

AND IT'S KIND OF A TO BE DETERMINED, AS OPPORTUNITIES PRESENT THEMSELVES.

WITH CLUBHOUSE DESIGN THAT YOU SEE AGAIN, THIS IS SCHEMATIC.

NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE.

WE HAVE NOT MOVED FORWARD WITH DESIGN AT THIS TIME OTHER THAN JUST EXPLORING IDEAS.

BUT I'M ACTUALLY GOING TO LOOK THIS WEEK AT ANOTHER FACILITY IN EAST TEXAS THAT UTILIZES A SIMILAR LOOK AND FEEL FOR A VERY EFFICIENT DESIGN STRUCTURE.

SO I'LL BE HAPPY TO REPORT BACK ON THAT AT THE RIGHT TIME.

SO THIS IS OPTION ONE.

CARMA, IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

OPTION TWO, SO THIS IS STARTING TO GET A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO REPLACING WHAT IS CURRENTLY OUT AT THE JACK COLEMAN CENTER, WHICH I BELIEVE IS 13 COURTS.

SO THIS IS THE APPROXIMATE EIGHT POINT THREE MILLION THAT WOULD GET US A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO REPLACING THEM WITH WHAT THEY CURRENTLY HAVE.

AND AGAIN, RESTROOMS SHADE STRUCTURES, CLUBHOUSE FEATURE COURT ALL OF THAT.

AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'RE JUST KIND OF BUILDING OFF TO THE EAST AND TO THE NORTH AND EXPANDING FORWARD.

SO ACCOMMODATING ABOUT TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY EIGHT PARKING SPACES IS THE PROJECTED ESTIMATE AT THIS TIME.

AND THEN IF YOU WANT TO GO TO THE NEXT OPTION.

THIS STARTS TO BECOME, AS YOU MIGHT RECALL.

ONE GENTLEMAN WAS KIND OF ALLUDING TO THE PART WHERE THEIR PREFERRED BUILD OUT WOULD BE AROUND 20 COURTS.

THAT PUTS US KIND OF ON THE RADAR IN THE TENNIS COMMUNITY FOR SOME PRETTY SERIOUS TOURNAMENT ACQUISITION.

SO, AGAIN, WE'RE LOOKING AT WHETHER IT BE A PHASED APPROACH OR WHATEVER.

THESE ARE PRELIMINARY ESTIMATES BETWEEN WHAT'S AVAILABLE FOR THE MONEY WE HAVE.

AND THIS IS WHAT A FOOTPRINT MIGHT LOOK LIKE TO GET US TO THAT 20 COURTS ON THIS PARCEL, STILL LEAVING QUITE A BIT OF ROOM TO DISCUSS WHAT WE DO OFF TO THE WEST.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT? I HAVE, I THINK IS THIS THE LAST OPTION OR IS THIS THE.

YES, SIR, THESE WERE THE OPTIONS WE WORKED ON AND AGAIN, I FAILED TO POINT OUT SO ON THIS ONE IS WHEN YOU START TO SEE DEDICATED PICKLEBALL COURTS.

IN HERE, WE'RE LOOKING AT APPROXIMATELY 16.

FROM A PROGRAMING STANDPOINT YOU REALLY, AT THIS LEVEL OF PLAY, REALLY NEED TO HAVE SEPARATE PICKLEBALL FROM SEPARATE TENNIS.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T TEMPORARILY STRIKE THE REST OF THOSE TENNIS COURTS FOR A VERY LARGE PICKLEBALL TOURNAMENT, BUT FOR DAILY USE AND LESSONS, YOU REALLY AT THIS LEVEL WANT TO START SEEING THOSE SEPARATED OUT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T PUT SOME RECREATIONAL PLAY AND DROP IN PLAY AROUND TOWN.

AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL THIS IS WHERE WE WOULD SEE IT SEPARATE OUT.

OK, ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD.

WE DO HAVE I DO HAVE SOME QUESTIONS QUEUING UP.

CARMA IF YOU CAN PULL THAT DOWN FOR ME FOR THE MOMENT, COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, MR. HESSER, FOR THE PRESENTATION I WANTED.

SO I GUESS ONE QUICK QUESTION BASED ON THE LAST SLIDE.

SO A TENNIS COURT GETS YOU HOW MANY PICKLEBALL COURTS? FOUR.

DEPENDS ON HOW THEY'RE CONFIGURED.

I BELIEVE YOU CAN GET, LET'S SEE IF THERE'S A SET OF I WANT TO SAY IT'S SIX OR EIGHT PER PAIR.

I CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY.

IT DEPENDS ON HOW IT'S BUILT AND SPACED OUT.

IF YOU HAVE A SET OF FOUR TENNIS SIDE BY SIDE, WHICH ISN'T IDEAL FOR THE TENNIS FOLKS, IT'S A PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL NUMBER.

SO WE COULD ULTIMATELY END UP WITH.

GOSH, 40, 50 PICKLEBALL STRIKES OUT THERE.

OK, WHICH WOULD I GUESS I MEAN, THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR A VERY MAJOR THAT WOULD MAKE US VERY COMPETITIVE WITH RESPECT TO DRAWING TOURNAMENTS.

I BELIEVE SO.

I THINK THE MAGIC NUMBER AND AGAIN, I COULD GET BACK WITH IT DEPENDING ON HOW IT'S

[02:15:02]

LAID OUT.

OUR MAGIC NUMBER FOR SOMETHING ALONG THE LEVEL OF A TEXAS OPEN WOULD BE AROUND MID 60S OF PICKLEBALL COURTS AVAILABLE.

OK, AND THEN I GUESS I WANTED TO I KIND OF FEEL LIKE WHERE WE LEFT THIS LAST YEAR FROM COUNCIL WAS A DIRECTIVE TO STAFF, NOT JUST ABOUT WHAT YOU COULD DO WITH TUCKERVILLE, BUT IS THAT THE PLACE WHERE TENNIS OUGHT TO GO WITHIN THE CITY? SO HAVE YOU ALL LOOKED AT OTHER OPTIONS AND DETERMINED THAT THIS IS THE BEST PLACE FOR IT.

YES SIR.

YOU KNOW, WITHOUT AN UNPAID CONSULTANT TO INVESTIGATE THAT, WE DID KIND OF UTILIZE OUR BEST PRACTICES IN THE PARK PLANNING WHERE WE WERE ALSO ASKED TO LOOK AT PLACES SUCH AS AUDUBON PARK, WHERE WE'VE GOT LAND THAT'S ALREADY AVAILABLE.

THAT WOULD BE CHALLENGING AND POSSIBLY PROBLEMATIC FOR EXISTING USERS FOR OVER PROGRAMING, THAT SITE MIGHT SQUEEZE BETWEEN CARTER SOFTBALL AND THE EXISTING SOCCER, IT MIGHT IMPACT SOME OF THE SOCCER.

THE LAYOUT AND CONFIGURATION OF HOW THAT WOULD FIT IN WOULD BE KIND OF LESS THAN IDEAL.

I SEE YOU'RE GETTING A PAT ON THE BACK FROM A COMPATRIOT THERE.

THAT'S GREAT.

ONE OF MY CONSTITUENTS.

RIGHT.

RIGHT.

SO WE HAVE WE JUST HAVEN'T SEEN ANY OTHER SITES THAT WOULD BE CHECKING MORE OF THE BOXES ON WHAT'S THE BEST USE OF THE DOLLARS AND THE MOST BANG FOR OUR BUCK.

BECAUSE THE BUDGETS ALWAYS TIGHT, ALWAYS WILL BE.

SO WE'VE GOT TO LOOK FOR WAYS THAT, YOU KNOW, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT BUILDING THAT LITTLE TINY PIECE OF ROAD COMING IN OFF OF SIXTY SIX.

THAT DOLLAR AMOUNT HELPS AND MEANS WE COULD BUILD MORE RECREATIONAL AMENITIES AND LESS ROAD.

OK, AND TO REFRESH, I GUESS, FOR BECAUSE WE DO HAVE TWO NEW COUNCIL MEMBER SINCE THIS WAS DISCUSSED A YEAR AGO.

THE CURRENT TENNIS CENTER IN RICK ODEN FOR YOU KNOW, THE TENNIS FOLKS WOULD LIKE TO EXPAND IT TO GET MORE TO BE ABLE TO DO BIGGER TOURNAMENTS AND OTHER THINGS.

BUT WE HAVE AN ISSUE THAT MUCH OF THE TENNIS, MANY OF THE TENNIS COURTS ARE ACTUALLY IN THE FLOODPLAIN OVER THERE.

AND IT'S REALLY NOT A SUITABLE LOCATION FOR THAT TENNIS FACILITY.

IS THAT HAVE I PARAPHRASED THAT PRETTY WELL.

YES SIR.

OK.

AND SO IN THE FUNDING THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS THERE'S EXISTING FIVE MILLION DOLLARS OF 04 BOND PROGRAM MONEY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TUCKERVILLE PARK.

THAT'S MY UNDERSTANDING, YES SIR.

RIGHT.

AND SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT USING 2004 BOND MONEY, COMPLETING THAT, DEVELOPING THIS PART AND INITIALLY IT WAS DESCRIBED AS WELL.

INITIALLY, THE THOUGHT HAD BEEN THE TUCKERVILLE PARK WOULD BE THE SITE OF A SOFTBALL COMPLEX.

AND IN MY UNDERSTANDING IS BASED ON THE PARK'S MASTER PLAN THAT WE DID, IS THAT SOFTBALL, ADDITIONAL SOFTBALL FIELDS AND WHATNOT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY A NEED FOR US RIGHT NOW.

IS THAT REASONABLY ACCURATE? YES SIR, THAT'S CORRECT.

THE MASTER PLAN INDICATES THE DEMAND FOR DIAMOND SHAPED FIELDS IS AT A SURPLUS AND RECTANGULAR SHAPED FIELDS ARE AT A DEFICIT.

OK.

AND I KNOW WE HAD AND YOU KNOW, LAST YEAR WHEN WE DISCUSSED THIS COUNCIL MEMBER GIBBONS AND THIS IS IN DISTRICT ONE, SO I'M NOT TRYING TO STEP ON ANY DISTRICT ONE ISSUES HERE, MR. MCNEAL, BUT I DO WANT TO KIND OF BRING EVERYONE UP ON KIND OF THE CURRENCY OF IT.

IS COUNCIL MEMBER GIBBONS RAISED THE ISSUE THAT THE REPRESENTATIONS HAD BEEN MADE TO THE WILLIAMS FAMILY THAT THIS WAS GOING TO BE.

AND I THINK THE SIGN OUT THERE STILL SAYS FUTURE HOME.

IT'S ANOTHER ONE OF OUR FUTURE HOME SIGNS FUTURE HOME OF THE MARION D.

WILLIAMS SOFTBALL COMPLEX.

AND MARION WILLIAMS WAS A LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL COACH, PART OF THE WILLIAMS FAMILY, AND HE HAD PASSED AWAY.

AND SO THERE WAS TALK ABOUT DOING THAT.

COUNCIL MEMBER GIBBONS EXPRESSED SOME CONCERN.

AND MAYOR DAY WHO CAME AND TALKED TO COUNCIL A YEAR AGO ABOUT THE NEEDS FOR THE TENNIS CENTER AND WHATNOT, MADE A REAL NICE PRESENTATION DISCUSSION TO COUNCIL.

BUT MY UNDERSTANDING, AND I DON'T HAVE HIM HERE TONIGHT, I WASN'T FULLY READY TO ENGAGE ON THIS, PERHAPS.

BUT MY UNDERSTANDING FROM MAYOR DAY IS THAT HE HAD A DISCUSSION WITH THE

[02:20:05]

WILLIAMS FAMILY AND ALONG THE LINES OF YOU KNOW, WOULD THEY BE ALL RIGHT WITH THAT NOT COMING TO FRUITION AT TUCKERVILLE PARK AND MAYBE, YOU KNOW, THIS NEW FIELD THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AT RICK ODEN PARK THE CHAMPIONSHIP BASEBALL FIELD, THAT THERE MIGHT BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THAT TO BE NAMED AFTER MARION WILLIAMS, SO WE'D HAVE MARION WILLIAMS FIELD AT RICK ODEN PARK.

AND AGAIN, I DON'T WANT TO SPEAK FOR MAYOR DAY, BUT MY UNDERSTANDING FROM HIM IS THAT THE FAMILY FELT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.

SO I THINK THAT WOULD ADDRESS COUNCIL MEMBER GIBBONS' ISSUES WITH RESPECT TO THAT.

SO THAT SAID COUNCIL.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE WE ARE FUNDING WISE AND WHAT FUTURE MONIES ARE AVAILABLE.

I THINK IT WOULD BE NICE TO AT LEAST BE ABLE TO PUT SOMETHING SIMILAR TO WHAT'S OUT THERE NOW WITH WHICH WOULD BE OPTION TWO WITH THE FUTURE PLAN TO EXPAND.

AND SO THAT WOULD BE KIND OF WITH THE FUTURE AND THEN WHEN THE 2024 BOND COMES AROUND TO ADD ADDITIONAL COURTS OR AS YOU MAY RECALL, WE HAD, YOU KNOW, THEY MAY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO RAISE MONEY.

WE HAD A RESIDENT WHO WAS WILLING TO CONTRIBUTE.

I THINK IT WAS ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO ADD AN ADDITIONAL COURT AND YOU KNOW.

SO WHY NOT 200,000 OR WHY NOT WHATEVER, AND I THINK THAT'S A THING WHERE WE COULD, YOU KNOW.

MODULARLY, AND I GUESS THAT'S HOW YOU ALL HAVE DESIGNED THAT IF WE CAN IF WE HAVE THE MONEY OR SOMEONE COMES UP WITH THE MONEY, WE CAN ADD TWO MORE COURTS OR ANOTHER HOWEVER IT WORKS.

IS THAT ROUGHLY ACCURATE? IT GIVES US ROOM TO EXPAND.

SO TO A CERTAIN DEGREE, YES.

ONE OF THE CHALLENGES WITH THAT SITE, IS IT'S KIND OF FLAT, BUT THERE IS SOME GRADE CHANGE.

THE CREEK SEPARATES IT KIND OF AT AN ANGLE.

AND SO THE REASON THAT YOU'LL SEE THOSE IN PAIRS RATHER THAN FOURS IS TWO FOLD.

ONE, THE TENNIS COMMUNITY KIND OF TENDS TO PREFER THEM THAT WAY, PARTICULARLY IN COMPETITION, LESS TRAFFIC AND BALLS BOUNCING ALL OVER THE DIFFERENT COURTS.

AND THE OTHER REASON IS THAT THE WAY THE GRADING IS, THEY'LL NEED TO BE TERRACED IN SOME WAY.

SO DEPENDING ON WHERE THE MONEY FALLS, WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO MASQUERADE THE ENTIRE SITE.

SO EVERY TIME WE BUILD A POT OR A MODULE OR WHATEVER, IT MAY COME WITH SOME ADDITIONAL GRADING.

SO WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THAT UNIT COST WOULD BE.

BUT ABSOLUTELY, THE SPACE IS THERE AND THE THOUGHT WOULD BE IT WOULD GROW IN A PARTICULAR DIRECTION ON THE SITE, HAVE WE LOOKED AT.

I JUST WANT TO BREAK THAT INTO TWO QUESTIONS, WHAT WOULD BE THE SIZE OF THE PRO SHOP, LOCKER ROOM FACILITY, WHATEVER IT IS THAT WAS THERE ROUGHLY.

RIGHT.

HAVEN'T GOT THAT FAR YET.

IT MAY BE SOMEWHAT BUDGET DRIVEN.

AND AGAIN, I'M HOPING TO TAKE A LOOK AT A FACILITY THIS WEEK THAT MAY OPEN UP.

WITH THE TIGHT BUDGET WE MAY STILL BE ABLE TO CAPTURE SOME VERY FUNCTIONAL SQUARE FOOTAGE AND BE ATTRACTIVE AT THE SAME TIME.

OK, AND THAT WOULD BE ANOTHER OPTION TO ALSO DO IN KIND OF A MODULAR FASHION IF WE NEEDED TO, THAT WE COULD EXPAND LEAVE SOME ROOM TO EXPAND THAT FACILITY.

SURE.

AND, YOU KNOW, CERTAINLY IT'S NOT JUST THE COURTS, BUT THE FACILITIES WITHIN THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT, THAT WOULD ENABLE US TO ATTRACT SOME OF THESE LARGER TOURNAMENTS.

ABSOLUTELY.

HAVE WE ENGAGED THE TENNIS COMMUNITY ON THIS, OR IS THAT SOMETHING THAT IS THE NEXT PART THAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT? YES SIR, THAT WOULD BE WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO IS INCLUDE THOSE FOLKS IN THAT DISCUSSION.

I FELT LIKE PRIOR TO ANY BUDGET APPROVAL MIGHT BE A TAD PREMATURE.

HOWEVER, WE HEARD ALL THE FEEDBACK IN PAST DISCUSSIONS, AT PUBLIC MEETINGS AND THROUGH A FLURRY OF EMAILS.

SO WE TRIED TO AT LEAST PRELIMINARILY CONSIDER THOSE AS BEST AS WE COULD.

BUT WE DO THINK THAT THE SUCCESS OF IT WE'LL ABSOLUTELY NEED TO ENGAGE THOSE FOLKS FOR DESIGN AND LAYOUT CONSIDERATIONS.

OK, AND HEALTH PROGRAM, GREAT, WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. HESSER, FOR TOLERATING MY QUESTIONS.

AND I DO SUPPORT GOING FORWARD WITH THIS AND DOING IT IN TUCKERVILLE, SEQUENCING IT IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT WOULD BE SEAMLESS TO MOVE OUT OF THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO CONTINUE THE DEVELOPMENT OF RICK ODEN PARK IN AN APPROPRIATE WAY.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

VERY GOOD THANK YOU SIR.

[02:25:01]

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. THANK YOU MAYOR.

JUST A COUPLE COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, ONE MR. HESSER.

THE OPTION ONE AND I WAS TRYING TO TAKE NOTES.

YOU HAD A SLIDE AND THEY PROJECTED COST YOU HAD WAS IT SEVEN MILLION ADDITIONAL.

OPTION NUMBER ONE WAS ABOUT FIVE POINT TWO FIVE POINT THREE SOMEWHERE IN THERE.

YEAH.

AND OPTION TWO WAS.

EIGHT POINT THREE.

MAYBE I'M DOING THIS FROM MEMORY HERE.

YES SIR APPROXIMATELY.

IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY.

OK, AND THAT WAS DUE PRIMARILY TO WHAT.

AS YOUR ADDING COURTS YOU'RE ADDING PAVING.

YOU'RE ADDING PARKING, YOU'RE ADDING RESTROOMS. SO IT'S NOT JUST A STRAIGHT LINEAR FUNCTION, OF COURT COUNT.

IT'S ALL THE ANCILLARY SUPPORT THINGS THAT GO ALONG WITH IT.

SO EVERY TIME WE EXPAND, WE'VE GOT MORE PEOPLE TO ACCOMMODATE MORE RESTROOMS, MORE PARKING, MORE SIDEWALKS, GETTING THEM FURTHER OUT TO THE NORTH AND THE EAST.

OK, SO IF TO GO WITH OPTION ONE, THERE WOULD AND HOPEFULLY GET ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR FUTURE EXPANSION.

IS THAT YOUR THOUGHT PROCESS HERE, IF AND I DON'T KNOW.

I'M NOT SAYING THAT I'M GOING TO I'M JUST SAYING LET'S SAY IF BASED ON FEEDBACK, BASED ON AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS WITH OPTION ONE, IT WOULD BE BUILT WITH THE CAPABILITY OF EXPANDING THE FACILITY AT A FUTURE DATE.

CORRECT.

YES, SIR.

THAT'S THE INTENTION IS TO KIND OF TREAT IT LIKE A MODULAR LOOK THAT AS FUNDING BECOMES AVAILABLE IS THE FIRST PHASE, THE MAGIC NUMBER THAT THE TENNIS COMMUNITY WOULD LIKE TO SEE? NO, BUT IT'S THE MONEY THAT'S AVAILABLE AND IT PROVIDES UP TO POSSIBLY 10 FANTASTIC NEW UP TO DATE FACILITIES.

WITH THAT IN MIND, AS FUNDING BECOMES AVAILABLE, WE WOULD GO ON WITH THE PHASE TWO OR PHASE THREE.

OTHERWISE, I'D BE CONCERNED THAT BEYOND THE BUDGET IS AVAILABLE, WE WOULD KIND OF BE IN A POSITION THAT SOMETHING WOULD HAVE TO GO AWAY TO REPLACE THAT ADDITIONAL FOR OPTION TWO OR THREE.

OK, AND THEN ALSO WOULD THERE BE SOME CAPACITY LIMITS BOTH IN TERMS OF PARKING AND ACTUAL LIVE BODIES ON THE PREMISES.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND SO YOU'LL NOTICE ON ONE OF THOSE SLIDES, THERE'S A RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF PARKING AND THEN THERE'S AN ACTUAL PROPOSED NUMBER.

WE PROPOSE TO TRY TO HAVE A LITTLE MORE PARKING BECAUSE THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH PARKING AND THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH STORAGE, BOTH OF WHICH ARE VERY EXPENSIVE.

SO WHEN.

THERE MIGHT BE RULES OF THUMB IN THE PLANNING AND ENGINEERING OF IT THAT SAYS, YES, IT NEEDS THIS AMOUNT OF PARKING AND ANCILLARY SUPPORT AMENITIES, HOWEVER, WE HAVE TO VISIT WITH THE TENNIS FOLKS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE UNDERSTAND HOW THEY PROGRAM IT OR HOW WE AS STAFF MIGHT PROGRAM IT.

WHEN YOU BRING TOURNAMENTS, YOU'VE GOT MORE THAN JUST PLAYERS.

YOU'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, OFFICIALS, YOU'VE GOT CONCESSION FOLKS.

YOU MIGHT HAVE SUPPORT FOLKS FOR THE TOURNAMENT.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE FAMILY THERE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO FACTOR ALL THAT IN.

JUST WE'RE NOT AT THAT PHASE YET.

AND MY LAST QUESTION IS, ABSENT ORGANIZED TOURNAMENTS WOULD THIS FACILITY BE OPEN AND ACCESSIBLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC? YES, AGAIN, WE HAVEN'T TACKLED THE PROGRAMING LEVEL OF IT JUST YET.

THERE'S A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES.

THERE'S A FANTASTIC FOLLOWING CURRENTLY WITH SOME OF THE INSTRUCTORS THAT ARE OUT THERE THAT ARE VERY, LONGSTANDING AND LOYAL FOLLOWING.

SO WE WOULD NOT WANT TO DISPLACE THAT.

BUT THAT'S A LESSONS OR A FEE-BASED.

WE WOULD ALSO, BECAUSE IT'S PUBLIC COURTS WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE PROGRAMS AVAILABLE FOR KIDS PROGRAMS, FOLKS THAT MAY NOT NECESSARILY HAVE ACCESS TO THE TENNIS PROGRAM.

WE NEED TO FIND WAYS TO DO THAT.

THERE'S GREAT GRANTS OUT THERE LIKE USTA TO HELP BRING PROGRAMS LIKE THAT TO FOLKS THAT DON'T HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY.

SO WE WOULD EVALUATE THAT ALL IN THE BIG PICTURE OF HOW TO PROGRAM THAT SPACE WITH THE GOAL OF MAXIMIZING THAT FACILITY.

WE AS PARK FOLKS WANT TO SEE FACILITIES BURSTING AT THE SEAMS ALL THE TIME.

WE WANT IT USED ALL THE TIME.

OK, OK, WELL, I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR FUTURE PRESENTATION AND INFORMATION ON THIS, AND I DON'T WANT TO GET AHEAD OF YOU AND THE PROGRAM ASPECTS OF IT.

[02:30:02]

BUT THOSE WOULD BE SO, YOU KNOW, SOME OF MY THINGS THAT I'D LOOK FOR IS PUBLIC ACCESS TO THIS FACILITY.

AND YOU MENTIONED FEE SCHEDULES.

WHAT THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE, BECAUSE YOU PROBABLY GOT SOME FOLKS IN TOWN WHO MIGHT NOT BE IF IT'S STRICTLY FEE SCHEDULE, WHO WOULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO BE ABLE TO USE THIS FACILITY.

AND IT WOULD CONCERN ME IF WE GOT A TAXPAYER FUNDED FACILITY AND THERE ARE SOME FOLKS WHO CAN'T USE IT, BUT I DON'T LIKE I SAY AGAIN, I APPRECIATE THE PRESENTATION AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

AND THIS IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS, RICK ODEN I REMEMBER THAT MR. MAYOR.

I MEAN TUCKERVILLE.

I MEAN THE WORD TUCKERVILLE COMING UP WAY BACK WHEN I WAS ON COUNCIL.

SO IT'S BEEN AROUND I THINK PLAN COMMISSION DAYS SO IT'S BEEN AROUND FOR A WHILE.

SO I'M GLAD TO SEE THE PROGRESS ON THIS.

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

AND COUNCIL JUST TO LET YOU KNOW, THE TUCKERVILLE OPTIONS THAT WE SAW ARE BEING LOADED INTO THE BOX FOLDERS FOR EVERYBODY.

SO I'VE BEEN SEEING SOME E-MAILS BOUNCING AROUND BETWEEN MITCH AND CARMA IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MINUTES.

I THINK THOSE ARE GOING TO BE LOADED SOMETIME VERY SOON.

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S SEE.

COUNCIL MEMBER MCNEAL.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

AND ANDY YOU KIND OF TOUCHED ON WHERE I WAS GOING WITH THE UTSA THERE.

I'M ASSUMING THAT ALL OF THOSE WOULD JUST BE YOU GUYS REACHING OUT, THAT WE WOULD NOT NEED TO HAVE ANY KIND OF AGREEMENT WITH THEM.

THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WE COULD JUST PARTNER WITH THEM.

OR DO YOU HAVE ANY LINE OF SIGHT TO WHAT THAT MAY BE? SO AS FAR AS PROGRAMING GOES, THEY DO HAVE SEVERAL THE USTA HAS GOT SEVERAL ACCESS TYPE PROGRAMMINGS.

AND KIND OF LIKE SOME YEARS AGO, YOU SAW FIRST TEE CAME OUT I THINK TIGER WOODS, KIND OF HAD A BIG LAUNCH OF FIRST TEE TO MAKE SURE THAT KIDS HAD ACCESS TO LEARN TO PLAY GOLF.

USTA HAS THE SAME TYPE OF THING FOR TENNIS, AND IT'S VERY, VERY, VERY SUCCESSFUL.

AND SO THEY PROVIDE KIND OF A TOOLBOX AND A PARTNERSHIP AND SHARE THEIR NAME TO HELP ATTRACT THAT.

SO WE WOULD REACH OUT TO THEM FOR THOSE KIND OF PROGRAMS. ALSO DOESN'T MEAN WE CAN'T PUT OUR OWN PROGRAMS ON.

SO ON THAT KIND OF FACILITY, WHEN IT'S BOOKED SOLID, YOU'VE GOT PRIVATE LESSON OPPORTUNITY, GROUP LESSON OPPORTUNITY AND DROP IN COURT FEES.

SO AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW, THE CITY GETS A PORTION, YOU GOT THE GUY THAT OPERATES IT WE GET A PORTION OF THE COURT FEES, VERY MODEST FEE, WHATEVER IT IS, PER HOUR.

BUT THEN WE WOULD ALSO PROVIDE POSSIBLY ACCESS TO FREE PROGRAMS, PARTICULARLY LEARNING HOW TO PLAY TENNIS.

SO ALL OF THOSE THINGS, WE WOULD REACH OUT TO ANYBODY THAT COULD BE A POTENTIAL PARTNER TO HELP US PUT TOGETHER A COMPREHENSIVE OFFERING OF PROGRAMS. GREAT.

AND TO COUNCILMAN WILLIAMS POINT I GUESS MAYBE, YOU KNOW, SUMMER CAMPS OR SPRING CAMPS IS SOMETHING THAT WE COULD LOOK INTO AS FAR AS THE PROGRAM.

AND I KNOW WE'VE BEEN PREMATURE HERE, BUT DEFINITELY WHEN YOU HAVE A JEWEL OF THIS MAGNITUDE, THE MORE EXPOSURE, THE BETTER OFF IT WOULD BE.

AND THEN FINALLY, NOT WITH THE PARKING ASPECT AND OBVIOUSLY HAVING THE CONCESSIONS, WE WANT TO REALIZE THAT, YOU KNOW, TRY TO RETAIN SOME OF THAT.

BUT ANY VISION FROM POTENTIALLY OUTSIDE VENDORS COMING IN JUST SAID WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AN EVENT, JUST SAY JULY 4TH OR WHATEVER, THAT WE MAY HAVE SOME OUTSIDE VENDORS MAYBE COMING IN AND DOING SOMETHING SPECIALLY IN THE ASPECT OF THAT.

ABSOLUTELY.

THOSE ARE ALL QUESTIONS THAT WE WILL NEED TO EXPLORE AND ANSWER.

AND A LOT OF IT MAY DETERMINE ULTIMATELY WHETHER IT'S LARGELY STAFFED AND OPERATED OR IF IT IS OPERATED THROUGH A CONTRACTOR OR CONCESSIONAIRE.

SOMETIMES, THOUGH, LIKE IT IS CURRENTLY, SOMETIMES THOSE FOLKS HANDLE THEIR OWN CONCESSIONS AND THE CITY WOULD GET A AGREED UPON PERCENTAGE.

SOMETIMES THEY DON'T.

JUST DEPENDS ON WHEN WE'RE READY TO DO THAT.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE POTENTIAL FOR THE MARKET TO INCLUDE THAT IN AN RFP.

THANK YOU, SIR, VERY GOOD.

ALL RIGHT, ANY MORE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ON THE TUCKERVILLE SITE AND THE POST PLANS AND LIKE I SAY THOSE ARE BEING LOADED INTO THE BOX ACCOUNTS, EVERYBODY CAN KIND OF STUDY THEM IN A LITTLE MORE DETAIL AND LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF COURTS AND THE COSTS AS THEY'VE BEEN PROJECTED.

UNLESS THERE'S ANY MORE QUESTIONS FOR MR. HESSER WE WILL MOVE ON.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

WE ARE AT ITEM 2G, WHICH IS LIBRARY'S.

[02:35:06]

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR, COUNCIL, MR. BRADFORD, I'LL BE PRESENTING THE LIBRARY CIP TONIGHT.

GO AHEAD.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

OUR FIRST PROJECT IS THE EXPANSION AND RELOCATION OF THE WALNUT CREEK BRANCH LIBRARY TO THE SITE AT HOLLABAUGH.

AND I AGAIN JUST HAVE TO SAY HOW EXCITED WE ARE TO BE ABLE TO BUILD AT THAT SITE AND HAVE THE PROGRAMING OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE WILL AT THE REC CENTER.

VLK ARCHITECTS HAS BEEN SELECTED AND APPROVED FOR THIS PROJECT.

NEXT WORK WILL BEGIN ON THE PROGRAMING AND PRE DESIGN PHASES OF THE PROJECT AND WORK ON THIS PROJECT WILL BEGIN IN 2021.

HOPEFULLY 2020 IS BEHIND US.

ALL RIGHT, THE NEXT PROJECT IS THE INSTALLATION OF A LIBRARY MATERIALS KIOSK, THE LIBRARY MATERIALS KIOSK HELPS INCREASE POINTS OF SERVICE OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY, ESPECIALLY IN UNDERSERVED AREAS OF GARLAND WITH THE FEEDBACK YOU ALL PROVIDED WE'VE WORKED TO IDENTIFY A BETTER LOCATION FOR THE FIRST KIOSK THE SITE WE WOULD LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IS AT LON WYNN PARK AND DISTRICT FIVE.

THIS SITE IS ATTRACTIVE FOR A FEW REASONS.

ONE, IT PROVIDES SERVICE TO AN AREA OUTSIDE OF A THREE MILE RADIUS OF ANY CURRENT LIBRARY LOCATION.

TWO THE PARKS DEPARTMENT IS VERY SUPPORTIVE OF INCLUDING A KIOSK AT THIS LOCATION.

THREE THE INSTALLATION CAN BE WORKED INTO THE OVERALL SCHEME OF THE RENOVATED SITE.

AND FOUR AND THE BIGGEST REASON TO ME, THIS SITE ALLOWS THE LIBRARY TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE IN-PERSON PROGRAMING IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING PHYSICAL LIBRARY MATERIALS TO THAT SITE.

THE WORK FOR THIS PROJECT IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN 2021.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

NEXT ARE PROJECTS THAT ARE ALL FOCUSED ON THE CENTRAL LIBRARY.

THEY INCLUDE THE MODERNIZATIONS AND UPGRADES PROJECT FROM THE 2019 BOND PROGRAM, SCOPE B OF THE CENTRAL LIBRARY LIFE AND SAFETY PROJECT AND SOME SMALLER ITEMS FROM THE FACILITIES UPGRADES PROJECT.

THESE PROJECTS ARE BEING SCHEDULED TOGETHER TO REDUCE SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS TO THE PUBLIC AND TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GRANT FUNDS TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS ELECTRICAL IMPROVEMENTS AT THE CENTRAL LIBRARY.

COMBINING THESE PROJECTS FOR THE CENTRAL LIBRARY ALSO OFFERS US A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE BUILDING AS A WHOLE, INCREASE AND UPGRADE THE ELECTRICAL CAPACITY FOR THE PUBLIC AND STAFF, AND REDESIGN THE ENTIRE LIBRARY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE PUBLIC.

THIS INCLUDES STUDY ROOMS, ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGIES, THE SHELVING IN MATERIALS CONFIGURATIONS, STAFF AREAS, CONFERENCE AND MEETING ROOMS, AND EVEN HOW THE PUBLIC ENTERS THE BUILDING.

WORK ON CENTRAL IS PROPOSED TO BEGIN IN LATE 2021.

CURRENTLY, AN RFP IS OUT FOR A CONSTRUCTION MANAGER AT RISK, AND BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THE WORK BEING DONE OR PROPOSED TO BE DONE AT THE CENTRAL LIBRARY, THE BUILDING WILL NEED TO BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC AND STAFF FOR ABOUT A YEAR.

HOWEVER, IT'S CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO LOOK AND FIND A SUITABLE LOCATION IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA OF THE DOWNTOWN AREA TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO OFFER LIBRARY SERVICES TO THE PUBLIC.

WE DO NOT WANT TO TAKE AWAY CRITICAL LIBRARY SERVICES FROM THIS AREA.

NOW WE'LL BRIEFLY, LOOK AT EACH OF THE PROJECTS THAT MAKE UP BROOK AT CENTRAL.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

TO REVIEW THE MODERNIZATIONS AND UPGRADES PROJECT WILL ADDRESS CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE ISSUES, INCLUDING LAYOUT FOR INCREASED ACCESS TO LIBRARY TECHNOLOGIES IN ALL AREAS OF THE LIBRARY, FLEXIBLE DESIGN FOR EFFICIENT USE OF SPACE STUDY ROOMS, AND INCLUDE A MAKER OR CREATIVE COMMONS AREA.

THIS PROJECT WILL ALSO LOOK AT IMPROVING THE EXTERIOR FACADE OF THE CENTRAL LIBRARY AND HELP IT LOOK MORE, BECOME MORE INVITING AND WELCOMING AS A PLACE, AS WELL AS LOOK FOR A PLACE.

USE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WORK ON CENTRAL ALSO INCORPORATE SCOPE B OF THE CENTRAL LIBRARY LIFE AND SAFETY PROJECT.

THIS INCLUDES ALL OF THE WORK THAT WAS DELAYED THAT WOULD CAUSE MAJOR SERVICE DISRUPTIONS AND INCLUDES INSTALLATION OF A FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM ON THE MAIN FLOOR, REPLACEMENT OF INTERIOR LIGHTING, REPLACEMENT OF THE CEILING GRID, REPLACEMENT OF DUCT WORK THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING AND RENOVATING THE MEETING ROOM PUBLIC MEETING ROOM.

FUNDS FOR THIS PARTICULAR PART OF THE PROJECT ARE SCHEDULED FOR TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE LAST PARTOF THE CENTRAL PUZZLE IS ADDING SMALLER ITEMS THAT ARE A PART OF THE

[02:40:04]

FACILITIES UPGRADE PROJECT.

THIS INCLUDES REPLACING STAFF, FURNITURE IN THE ADMINISTRATION AND TECHNICAL SERVICES AREAS, REPLACING CARPET AND FLOORING THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING AT CENTRAL, REPLACING SOME SHELVING AND PROVIDING FOR PROJECTION EQUIPMENT FOR THE MEETING ROOM FOR PUBLIC USE.

FUNDS FROM THIS PROJECT ARE SCHEDULED FOR TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THESE ARE THE BOND PROJECTS AS SCHEDULED THROUGH 2025.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO IN TOTAL, WE'RE LOOKING AT EXPENDING ABOUT TWO POINT THREE MILLION DOLLARS FOR LIBRARIES IN 2021.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

WITH THAT I'LL BE HAPPY TO TRY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

IT LOOKS LIKE WE'VE GOT A COUPLE CUED UP COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I JUST WANTED TO JUMP IN AND MS. ARCHIBALD, I JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK ON THIS, PARTICULARLY ON THE KIOSKS.

AND COUNCIL I FULLY SUPPORT IT AND IT'S FUNNY, THE LON WYNN WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN ON THE LIST OF PLACES WE WERE CONSIDERING AND MS. ARCHIBALD AND I WERE OUT AT FIRST AND KINGSLEY.

AND THE THOUGHT WAS LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT, WHY DON'T WE GO DOWN TO LON WYNN.

AND WE WENT THERE AND IT TURNED OUT REALLY TO HIT US BOTH AS THE ABSOLUTE PERFECT PLACE.

IT'S RIGHT ON THE BORDER WITH DISTRICT FOUR AND THE ABILITY TO DO PROGRAMING AND THE SYNERGY THERE.

AND I'M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF LON WYNN, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A PLACE THAT HAS A POOL THAT IS VERY OLD, BUT MUCH, MUCH LOVED IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND IT'S A GREAT ENTRANCE TO THE PECAN GROVE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WHATNOT.

WE JUST RECENTLY COUNCIL APPROVED A NEIGHBORHOOD VITALITY PROJECT TO PUT A GREAT SCULPTURE OVER THERE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A SCULPTURE AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE SPLASH PAD THAT'S IN THE BOND PROGRAM AND PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT.

THIS IS WHERE WE'RE ADDING A TRAIL CONNECTION THAT'S BEING BUILT RIGHT NOW.

AND SO TO ADD THE LIBRARY KIOSKS THERE IN A PLACE THAT DESPERATELY NEEDS LIBRARY SERVICES, I THINK IS REALLY GREAT.

APPRECIATE THE HARD WORK, AND I FULLY SUPPORT IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

A QUICK QUESTION ON THE PLACEMENT OF THE KIOSK THAT ENTIRE PARK HAS A PRETTY NASTY FLOODPLAIN AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A WATER FEATURE THERE.

DO YOU GUYS FEEL LIKE, YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE A PLACE WHERE THE MATERIALS ARE GOING TO BE SAFE AND, YOU KNOW, ARE THERE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO ENSURE THAT? THE SHORT ANSWER IS YES.

WE'RE WORKING WITH ANDY AND HIS TEAM, AND I BELIEVE THE ENGINEERING TEAM AS WELL TO BE ABLE TO FIND THE MOST SECURE SPOT.

OK, I WAS THINKING BACK TO THE THE BIG FLOOD THAT WE HAD, THE 500 YEAR FLOOD.

AND I REMEMBER THE RIVER RUNNING DOWN THAT AREA SO THAT IT BLANKETED THE PARK AND I DON'T WANT TO SEE LIBRARY BOOKS SWEPT DOWNSTREAM.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

YES SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR AND MS. ARCHIBALD.

THANK YOU.

AND TO ECHO COUNCILMAN AUBINS, CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU ALL FOR PICKING THIS SPOT.

AND COUNCILMAN SMITH, THE GREEN BELT, THE DUCK CREEK GREEN BELT DRAINAGE PROJECT THAT MR .

POLOCEK TALKED ABOUT EARLIER ACTUALLY CONNECTS, GOES INTO LON WYNN.

AND SO IT'S GOING TO TAKE CARE.

YEAH, IT'S GOING TO TAKE CARE OF BOTH OF US AND TAKE ALL THREE OF US.

SO THAT SHOWS JUST HOW THESE PROJECTS ARE INTERTWINED.

SO AND I THINK BECAUSE LON WYNN IS A VERY, VERY POPULAR HAD THE CONVERSATION WITH THE KIDS ABOUT WHERE THE BASKETBALL COURTS I THINK WE'VE GOT SOME FUTURE NBA STARS THERE BECAUSE THEY REALLY AND THE POOL OVER THERE.

SO AND THE NEW BUSINESSES THAT ARE ALONG CENTERVILLE OVER THERE.

SO I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A REAL BOOST, ADDING THIS FEATURE TOO AT THAT LOCATION.

AND IT'S A VERY HIGH VISIBILITY, A PARK, VERY HIGH, HIGH TRAFFIC.

SO I THINK IT'S NOTHING BUT A WIN.

SO I'D JUST LIKE TO COMPLIMENT YOU, MS. ARCHIBALD, FOR YOUR WORK ON THIS.

AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE EXCITEMENT THAT IT'S GOING TO BRING TO THIS AREA.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU SIR.

I BELIEVE WE'VE CLEARED THE QUEUE ON THIS ITEM.

[02:45:01]

KAREN, THANK YOU.

LOTS OF EXCITING THINGS COMING TO LIBRARIES, TOO.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

WITH THAT, WE WILL MOVE ON TO HEALTH ANIMAL SERVICES, ITEM 2H.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I'LL SAY IT, I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I TALKED TO COUNCIL ABOUT SOMETHING THAT WASN'T COVID-19 RELATED SO.

WELL, THAT WAS ALMOST MY LEAD IN FOR YOU.

JUST OUT OF HABIT.

WELL, THANK YOU.

SO THIS IS A PROJECT THAT YOU ALL ARE VERY FAMILIAR ABOUT.

VERY, VERY FAMILIAR WITH.

OF COURSE, THE I THINK MOST OF YOU ATTENDED THE GROUNDBREAKING LAST MONTH OF THE NEW ANIMAL SHELTER.

AND CARMA COULD YOU ADVANCE TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE? OF COURSE.

THE PROJECT IS A TWO YEAR PROJECT, SO DESIGN FUNDING FOR DESIGN WAS APPROVED IN THE 2020 CIP.

DESIGN WAS COMPLETED.

OF COURSE, CONSTRUCTION HAS JUST BEGUN.

YOU SEE IN THE PHOTO ON THIS SLIDE, OF COURSE THAT'S TAKEN FROM HIGHWAY 66 LOOKING SOUTH TOWARDS THE SITE AND YOU CAN SEE LOTS OF DIRT WORK GOING ON, A LOT OF SITE PREPARATION.

I DRIVE BY THIS FACILITY OR BY THIS SITE EVERY DAY AND IT'S AMAZING TO SEE WHAT'S HAPPENED IN THE PAST MONTH OR SO.

JUST A RECAP ON THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION.

OF COURSE, THE IDEA IS TO CONSTRUCT A MODERN ANIMAL SHELTER FACILITY.

I THINK ALMOST ALL OF THE COUNCIL MEMBERS ARE WELL AWARE OF MANY OF THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE CURRENT FACILITY.

IT'S JUST OUTDATED.

AND WE'RE CERTAINLY IN NEED OF A MODERN FACILITY.

YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE COMPONENTS OF THAT MODERN FACILITY WOULD BE A WELCOMING ADOPTION SPACES WITH SHOWCASES TO REALLY ALMOST MARKET ANIMALS TO GIVE THEM EVERY POSSIBLE CHANCE OF ADOPTION.

OF COURSE, ANY MODERN FACILITY, ANY FACILITY THAT'S BEEN CONSTRUCTED IN THE PAST DECADE OR SO IS ONE OF THE CORE COMPONENTS OF THOSE FACILITIES OR ENHANCED DISEASE CONTROL.

TYPICALLY, THAT'S DONE THROUGH PODS TO ISOLATE SPECIFIC SECTIONS OF THE FACILITY AND OF COURSE, AIR CONTROL THE AIR HANDLING SYSTEM IS A BIG COMPONENT OF THAT.

ONE OF THE MAIN SHORTCOMINGS OF OUR CURRENT FACILITY IS ACCESS CONTROLS.

IT'S, REALLY THE ENTIRE SIDE IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS WE REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO IN THE NEW SHELTER IS HAVING PUBLIC OR FORWARD FACING AREAS AND AND STAFF AREAS OR AREAS THAT ARE ACCESSIBLE TO VOLUNTEERS.

THE BACK OF THE HOUSE TYPE OPERATIONS.

OF COURSE, WE'LL HAVE A FULLY FUNCTIONAL MEDICAL UNIT IN THIS FACILITY.

WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE ACTUALLY WE'LL CONTINUE WITH ENHANCED MEDICAL FUNCTIONS AND OPERATIONS.

AND OF COURSE, WE WANT IT TO BE A DESTINATION FOR PET LOVERS AND TO REALLY BRING A LOT OF THE SYNERGY THAT WE SEE IN OTHER AREA SHELTERS.

WE WILL BRING THAT TO GARLAND.

WE WANT TO CAPTURE THE THE POSITIVE ENERGY FROM THE PUBLIC AND PUT THAT TO GOOD USE.

SO WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE PROJECT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

JUST VERY QUICKLY, A FEW EXTERIOR RENDERINGS BASED ON THE FINAL DESIGN, AND HOPEFULLY WE WILL NOT HOPEFULLY WE WILL SOON SEE THESE RENDERINGS IN REAL LIFE, AND THE GOAL IS TO BEGIN MOVING INTO THIS FACILITY BY THE END OF THE YEAR.

CARMEN, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE PROJECT TOTAL FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE WOULD BE JUST UNDER FOURTEEN POINT SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS.

THAT'S THE BALANCE OF THE ORIGINAL FIFTEEN POINT EIGHT DOLLARS MILLION PROJECT.

AND WITH THAT, I WOULD BE GLAD TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU JASON.

OBVIOUSLY, YOU'VE ONLY GOT ONE THING ON YOUR ANIMAL SERVICES PLATE, BUT IT'S PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE PLATE.

SO WE WILL YOU KNOW, YOUR LACK OF QUANTITY OF PROJECTS WE'LL LET THAT SLIDE.

WE HAVE A VERY HIGH QUALITY PROJECT HEADED THAT WAY.

SO WE ARE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT DAY AS WELL.

PROBABLY NOT AS MUCH AS YOUR STAFF, BUT CERTAINLY EVERYBODY ACROSS THE CITY.

I DON'T HAVE ANYBODY IN THE QUEUE FOR JASON ON THIS ITEM.

SO, JASON, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

AND THAT WILL MOVE US TO ITEM 2I POLICE FUNDING CHIEF BRYAN.

[02:50:04]

GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL, I KNOW IT'S BEEN A LONG NIGHT, SO I'M GOING TO MOVE THROUGH QUICKLY.

THESE ARE ALL PROJECTS YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE AND THERE ARE THREE PROJECTS FROM THE TWENTY NINETEEN BUDGET BOND PROGRAM.

SORRY, GO AHEAD, CARMA.

WE'LL START WITH THE POLICE PROPERTY AND EVIDENCE BUILDING, WE BROKE GROUND ON THIS LAST WEDNESDAY ON THE 13TH, AND WE'RE HOPING TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT THIS YEAR.

WE'RE HOPING THIS TIME NEXT YEAR WE'RE MOVING INTO THIS BUILDING.

NEXT SLIDE.

IT KIND OF GIVES YOU A RENDERING OF BOTH EXTERNAL AND THE LOBBY, VERY AESTHETICALLY PLEASING LOOKING BUILDING, THAT'LL BE OFF FOREST LANE.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND THEN WE'RE REQUESTING FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY NINE THOUSAND FOR OUR POLICE STATION IMPROVEMENTS, SOME OF THE PROJECTS ON THIS INCLUDE ADDITIONAL SECURITY AND LIGHTING AND CAMERAS AROUND OUR FACILITY, AN UPGRADE TO THE LOCKER ROOMS, REPURPOSING SOME OF OUR OFFICE SPACE.

RIGHT NOW, OUR NPOS AND OUR GANG UNITS ARE SHARING A LARGE SPACE AND WE'RE GOING TO SEPARATE THOSE AND THEN THE ADDITION OF PRIVACY BARRIERS AROUND OUR CURRENT SECURITY FENCE.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND THEN THE ONE BOND PROJECT THAT WAS KIND OF LUMPED TOGETHER WAS THE POLICE RANGE AND THE SIMUNITIONS BUILDINGS, WE'VE KIND OF SEPARATED THOSE INTO TWO SEPARATE PROJECTS.

SO THE POLICE RANGE, WE'RE REQUESTING ONE HUNDRED FIFTY NINE THOUSAND.

AND THAT'S YOU CAN SEE THERE WE'VE HAD ISSUES WITH SOME OF THE BERMS. WHEN IT RAINS A LOT, THEY'VE KIND OF WE NEED TO SHORE UP THOSE BERMS, PROVIDE A 50 YARD LINE COVER SO THAT OUR OFFICERS CAN SHOOT IN INCLEMENT WEATHER, ADDITIONAL SHOOTING LANES, SECURE LIGHTING AROUND THE FACILITY AND ADD RESTROOMS AND OFFICE SPACE.

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE USING PORTA POTTIES OUT THERE.

NEXT SLIDE.

AND THEN OUR TRAINING POLICE SIMUNITIONS TRAINING FACILITY, ORIGINALLY, WE DISCUSSED HAVING THAT OUT AT THE RANGE, BUT SINCE THEN WE'VE DECIDED OUR BEST OPTION IS TO USE WHAT WILL BE THE VACATED PROPERTY ROOM.

SO WE'RE GOING TO REPURPOSE THAT PROPERTY ROOM AND TURN THAT INTO OUR TRAINING FACILITY.

NEXT SLIDE CARMA.

AND THEN SO THAT GIVES YOU AN IDEA, THE SUMMARY OF THE CIP PROJECTS.

MOST OF THAT IS THE PROPERTY AND EVIDENCE BUILDING IN THIS 2021.

I THINK ONE MORE SLIDE, CARMA.

AND THAT ALSO GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE TIMELINE WE'RE HOPING TO COMPLETE THE PROPERTY AND EVIDENCE BUILDING THIS YEAR, THE POLICE STATION IMPROVEMENTS IN 2022 AND THE OTHER TWO PROJECTS IN 2023.

AND FINAL SLIDE.

SO IF THERE'S ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR CHIEF BRYAN ON ON HIS ITEMS. I HAVE NOBODY IN THE QUEUE, CHIEF, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, THAT WILL BRING US TO ITEM 2J.

FIRE FUNDING REQUEST CHIEF LEE.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

AND COUNCIL, AS CHIEF BRYAN SAID, IT'S BEEN A LONG EVENING, SO WE'LL TRY TO BE AS BRIEF AS WE CAN AND STILL TAKE THE TIME TO ACCURATELY EXPLAIN WHAT'S GOING ON WITH OUR CIP PROPOSAL.

CARMA NEXT SIDE, PLEASE.

AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, FIRE APPARATUS COMES AT A VERY HIGH PRICE TAG.

SO WE DO CIP FOR MOST OF OUR FIRE APPARATUS.

THIS YEAR WILL BE REPLACING THE HEAVY RESCUE OUT OF THE STATION EIGHT.

IT'S A 1999 FREIGHTLINER WITH A HACKNEY TRAILER.

SO A TRACTOR TRAILER TYPE UNIT WE WILL BE REPLACING IT WITH A MORE STANDARD RESCUE UNIT THAT WILL NOT USE THE TRACTOR TRAILER DESIGN.

SO WE'RE PROPOSING THAT AND IF WE GET APPROVAL ON IT THE STATION 8 FOLKS WILL GET BUSY WORKING ON THE SPECS FOR THAT.

NEXT SLIDE.

BRINGS US TO THE AMBULANCE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM.

THIS YEAR, WE HAD PROPOSED THREE NEW AMBULANCES FOR THIS YEAR.

FLEET DID THEIR EVALUATION AND DETERMINED WE PROBABLY ON THE NEED TO GO AHEAD AND DO FOUR.

SO THIS PROPOSAL IS FOR FOUR ADDITIONAL AMBULANCES TO CONTINUE WITH OUR FLEET

[02:55:03]

REPLACEMENT ON THOSE VEHICLES.

I MIGHT MAKE NOTE THAT WITH THIS APPROVAL, IT WILL REPLACE THE LAST OF THE WHITE AMBULANCES AND THE ENTIRE FLEET OTHER THAN RESERVES WILL BE THE GRAY OVER RED AT THAT POINT.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS ONE IS EMERGENCY RESPONSE SAFETY EQUIPMENT.

LAST YEAR YOU APPROVED THE SCBA REPLACEMENT.

THE AIR PACKS DID NOT COME IN.

THEY HAVE BEEN ORDERED LATE LAST YEAR.

SO THE FUNDING FOR THAT PROGRAM IS REFLECTED IN THE TWENTY ONE.

BUT THE ONLY NEW FUNDING FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE ON EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT IS THREE HUNDRED FIFTEEN THOUSAND FOR THERMAL IMAGING REPLACEMENT.

THESE ARE THE CAMERAS THAT WE USE THAT INDICATE HOW TO SEE THROUGH SMOKE IF YOU WILL.

AND THE UNITS ARE UP FOR REPLACEMENT.

WE'RE STARTING TO SEE SOME FLAWS IN THEM THEY'VE BEEN MALFUNCTIONING A LITTLE BIT ON OCCASION ON THE FIRE GROUND.

SO IT'S TIME TO REPLACE THESE TOOLS.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS ONE IS THE SECOND SET OF GEAR, THE COAT AND PANTS FOR FIREFIGHTING PURPOSES THAT WAS APPROVED.

THIS IS KIND OF AN ACCOUNTING CLEANUP, IF YOU WILL.

WE HAD THE START OF THE PROGRAM IN THE 19 20 GENERAL FUND BUDGET.

THE SECOND PORTION OF THAT WHEN WE DISCUSSED THE GENERAL FUND BUDGET FOR 2021.

WE DISCUSSED GOING AHEAD AND DOING A FULL REPLACEMENT OR NOT REPLACEMENT, BUT A FULL SECOND SET FOR ALL OPERATIONAL PERSONNEL.

AND THE FUNDS FROM NINETEEN TWENTY AND TWENTY TWENTY ONE WERE BEING MOVED TO THE CIP FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE WITH THE BALANCE TO COMPLETE THE OUTFITTING THE ENTIRE DEPARTMENT COMING OUT OF TAX NOTES FOR TWENTY TWENTY ONE.

NEXT SLIDE.

AS WE GET INTO OUR BOND PROGRAM, ITEMS, FIRST ONE ON THE BOARD IS FIRESTATION NUMBER SIX.

AS YOU KNOW, IT'S GOING TO BE LOCATED NEAR GEORGE BUSH AND CAMPBELL, THE LAND WAS PURCHASED IN MAY OF 2020.

WE ARE DOING A PROGRAMING PHASE OF THE DESIGN RIGHT NOW.

THIS LOOKS AT WHAT ELEMENTS DO WE NEED IN THE FIRE STATIONS AND DETERMINING THE SQUARE FOOTAGE AND THEN WE'LL GO INTO DETAIL DESIGN.

THE PROGRAMING WILL CARRY US INTO MIDYEAR THIS YEAR.

WE ANTICIPATE GOING INTO THE ACTUAL DESIGN OF THE FACILITY IN EARLY 2022.

MOVING IN AND MID TWENTY THREE, THE NEXT STATION, IF YOU WILL, THE STATION ONE, THIS IS TO RELOCATE AND REBUILD FIRE STATION NUMBER ONE.

WE ALSO ARE DOING PROGRAMING ON THAT BUILDING AS WELL.

IT'S KIND OF SIMULTANEOUS ON ALL THREE OF THE FIRE STATION REDESIGNS.

DETAIL DESIGN WILL PROBABLY START IN 2022 ON THIS BUILDING WITH CONSTRUCTION ENDING IN MID TWENTY FOUR.

AND THE LAST STATION IS WHERE WE DID THE UNVEILING THE OTHER DAY FOR FIRE STATION NUMBER SEVEN.

CARMA IF YOU WILL.

THIS ONE'S GOING TO BE FIREWHEEL PARKWAY AN PLEASANT VALLEY.

WE JUST CLOSED ON THE PROPERTY.

PRELIMINARY DESIGN AGAIN THE PROGRAMING IS UNDERWAY FOR THIS ONE.

WE ANTICIPATE USING A FOOTPRINT FROM STATION SIX FOR THE DESIGN ON STATION SEVEN AS WELL.

THAT WILL BE VERY SIMILAR IN NATURE WITH SIMILAR PURPOSE AND SIMILAR SIZE.

WE ANTICIPATE DETAILED DESIGN OF MID TWENTY THREE CONSTRUCTION EXPECTED TO BE FINISHED IN LIKE TWENTY FIVE.

CARMA THE NEXT SLIDE WILL SHOW US THE BOND PROJECT SCHEDULE.

AND AGAIN THE PROGRAMING AND LAND PURCHASES ARE TAKING PLACE IN 2021, THE DESIGN FOR ONES AND SIXES WILL REALLY RAMP UP IN TWENTY TWO WITH DESIGN RAMPING IN TWENTY THREE FOR STATION SEVEN AND THEN CONSTRUCTION COMPLETIONS TWENTY THREE.

TWENTY FOUR, AND TWENTY FIVE RESPECTIVELY IN THE ORDER OF REPLACEMENT THAT WE PRESENTED.

NEXT SLIDE IS OUR SUMMARY OF CIP PROJECTS.

YOU SEE THAT FOR NEW PROJECTS THIS YEAR, ANTICIPATED EXPENDITURES THIS YEAR WILL BE NINE POINT FOUR EIGHT MILLION.

AND THE LAST SLIDE IS THE QUESTION SLIDE.

VERY GOOD, CHIEF.

THANK YOU.

I DON'T HAVE ANYONE IN THE QUEUE, BUT I WILL SAY, YOU KNOW, WHEN THE DAY ROLLS AROUND, WHEN THAT LAST WHITE PAINT SCHEME AMBULANCE COMES OFF THE STREETS, THAT'S GOING TO BE A BIG DEAL.

YOU KNOW WHAT THOSE THINGS HAVE BEEN AROUND SO AND ABOUT THE TIME WE FINISHED REPLACING ALL OF THEM WE'LL START REPLACING THE NEXT BATCH.

[03:00:02]

SO THEY'LL ALL GO INTO.

SO ON AND SO ON.

AND SO IT CONTINUES.

BUT ANYWAY, LOTS OF GOOD STUFF COMING WITH FIRE, NEW FACILITIES, NEW EQUIPMENT.

CERTAINLY AT THIS POINT, CHIEF, I DON'T HAVE ANYONE IN THE QUEUE.

SO I WILL SAY THANK YOU FOR FOR TAKING SOME TIME WITH US TONIGHT.

I KNOW WE'RE RUNNING A LITTLE LONG.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL, THAT COMPLETES ALL OF THE PRESENTATIONS FOR THIS EVENING.

WE ARE AT ITEM THREE COUNCIL DISCUSSION AND QUESTIONS.

I THINK AS WE HAVE WORKED THROUGH THE PRESENTATIONS, THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL QUESTIONS POSED THAT I KNOW STAFF IS COMPILING ANSWERS FOR NOW AND WE'LL ROUTE THOSE BACK TO US ALL THE WAY WE USUALLY DO BUDGET QUESTIONS.

SO COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANKS, MAYOR.

LESS DISCUSSION, I GUESS, AND MORE OVERALL, I JUST WANT TO THANK STAFF FOR THE PRESENTATIONS TONIGHT.

AND I JUST I REALLY WANT TO COMMEND STAFF.

THIS IS A CIP PROGRAM OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS.

I MEAN, WE'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

AND, YOU KNOW, OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, CREDIT TO COUNCIL FOR BEING BOLD AND PUTTING THIS TOGETHER, THE BOND PROGRAM AND TO THE CITIZENS AND THE VOTERS FOR APPROVING IT.

BUT REALLY THE EXECUTION ON THIS.

IN PARTICULARLY FOLLOWING OUR BUILD GARLAND DAY LAST WEEK, THE EXECUTION ON THIS IS WELL BEYOND ANY EXPECTATIONS THAT I THINK I COULD HAVE HAD.

AND SO I JUST PERSONALLY AND ON BEHALF OF THE RESIDENTS OF DISTRICT FIVE, REALLY WANT TO GIVE CREDIT AND THANKS TO STAFF ACROSS ALL OF THE DEPARTMENTS AND THE PMO OFFICE AN THE FOURTH FLOOR FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN AND BRINGING THIS TO US.

IT'S REALLY INCREDIBLE TO PAGE THROUGH THIS AND SEE WHAT'S COMING.

AND I HOPE THAT FOLKS WHO ARE WATCHING AT HOME, THAT OUR RESIDENTS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS, YOU KNOW, TAKE A FEW MINUTES AND ACTUALLY SIT DOWN AND READ THROUGH THE CIP THAT'S AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE AND REALLY LOOK AT HOW THE CITY IS EXECUTING ON THIS AND DELIVERING ON THE PROMISES OR REALLY THE COVENANT THAT WE MADE WITH THE VOTERS.

AND SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

IT'S A GREAT PROGRAM.

AND I THINK THERE'S REALLY NOT EVEN A LOT I MEAN, THERE'S NOT A LOT THERE'S NOT A LOT FOR US TO DO.

YOU BROUGHT US SOMETHING.

WE HAVE A FEW DECISIONS TO MAKE.

BUT FOR THE MOST PART, YOU ALL HAVE REALLY PUT TOGETHER A PROGRAM THAT I'M JUST READY TO SAY, YEAH LET'S GO OUT AND DO.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

VERY GOOD SIR.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

AND WITH THAT COUNCIL, OBVIOUSLY, AS YOU CONTINUE TO REVIEW THE INFORMATION, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE ROUTE THOSE BACK TO STAFF.

AND THEN AGAIN, LIKE WE ALWAYS DO.

STAFF WILL THEN ROUTE THOSE ANSWERS, YOUR QUESTIONS AND THE ANSWERS BACK TO THE ENTIRE GROUP.

AND I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANYTHING ELSE.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS THIS EVENING? I WILL SAY WE WILL TAKE THIS BACK AT THIS DISCUSSION BACK UP.

I BELIEVE IT'S NEXT TUESDAY, THE 26TH.

WE WILL CONTINUE OUR REVIEW AND DISCUSSIONS.

AND WITH THAT AT 9:12, WE ARE ADJOURNED.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.
