[Items 9A & 9B]

FOR A DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANT COFFEE SHOP.

THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT 2128 NORTH JUPITER ROAD IN DISTRICT SEVEN.

THIS ITEM ALSO HAS A SECOND PART.

CONSIDER A SITE PLAN REQUEST.

SAME APPLICANT, SAME ADDRESS.

MR. GUERIN. MR. MAYOR AND COUNCIL. GOOD EVENING.

CAN YOU SEE MY SCREEN OK? YES, SIR.

OK, VERY GOOD.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO CONSTRUCT A RESTAURANT SLASH COFFEE SHOP WITH A DRIVE THROUGH.

THE APPLICANT HAS CONFIRMED IT'S OK TO GO AHEAD AND SAY IT IS A STARBUCKS COFFEE.

SO JUST TO BE CLEAR WHAT IT IS.

THE LOCATION IS 2128 NORTH JUPITER ROAD.

THE SITE IS APPROXIMATELY 0.74 ACRES IN SIZE AND IT IS COMMUNITY RETAIL DISTRICT.

HERE'S THE GENERAL LOCATION OF THE SITE NEAR JUPITER AND BUCKINGHAM, JUST NORTHEAST OF THAT INTERSECTION. AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, HERE IS THE SUBJECT SITE.

THE SPECIFIC LOCATION OF THE DRIVE THROUGH COFFEE SHOP WOULD BE WITHIN THIS BLUE AREA HERE ON THE EAST SIDE OF JUPITER ROAD.

IT'LL BE A SITE THAT'S CARVED OUT AND PLATTED FROM THE HOME DEPOT SITE.

SO BE CONSTRUCTED IN AN EXISTING SURFACE PARKING AREA WITHIN THE HOME DEPOT AREA.

BUT BOTH THIS PROPOSAL AND THE HOME DEPOT WOULD STILL MEET THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS OF THE GDC.

TO THE NORTH OF THE PROPOSAL ARE TWO EITHER DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANTS.

I MENTIONED THE HOME DEPOT AS WELL TO THE SOUTH AS A RETAIL BUILDING AS WELL AS A BANK USE FURTHER SOUTH AND TO THE WEST ACROSS JUPITER ROAD IS ACTUALLY IN RICHARDSON.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OUTLINES OR IDENTIFIES THIS AREA AS NEIGHBORHOOD CENTERS.

THIS PROPOSAL IS CONSISTENT WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER'S DESIGNATION AND OFFERS A SUPPORTIVE USE TO THE AREA, INCLUDING RESIDENTS IN THE AREA.

HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA.

SUBJECT SITE IS SHOWN ON THE TOP LEFT.

PHOTO HERE IS LOOKING NORTH OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY TO THE DRIVE THROUGH RESTAURANT TO THE NORTH. THERE'S THE HOME DEPOT AND I'M LOOKING WEST ACROSS JUPITER IS WITHIN THE CITY OF RICHARDSON. HERE'S THE SITE PLAN, THE BUILDING WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY 2015 SQUARE FEET IN SIZE. THERE WOULD BE SOME OUTDOOR SEATING AVAILABLE FOR PATRONS, THE SITE WOULD BE ACCESSED FROM JUPITER ROAD AS WELL AS THROUGHOUT THE HOME DEPOT AND SHOPPING CENTER AREA.

IT MEETS THE STANDARDS OF THE GDC.

AND HERE'S THE LANDSCAPE PLAN ALSO MEETS THE LANDSCAPING STANDARDS OF THE GDC.

AND THE BUILDING ELEVATION'S I MENTIONED THE OUTDOOR SEATING AREA, BUT THESE MEET THE GDC STANDARDS AS WELL. THE APPLICANT REQUESTS THE SUP TO BE IN EFFECT FOR TWENTY FIVE YEARS, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE AND NO DEVIATIONS HAVE BEEN REQUESTED BY THE APPLICANT, STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE REQUESTS, BOTH THE SUP AND THE PLAN.

AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AS WELL WITH A NINE TO ZERO VOTE FOR BOTH THE SUP AND THE SITE PLAN, WE MAILED OUT ONE HUNDRED TWENTY EIGHT NOTIFICATION LETTERS.

WE RECEIVED SEVEN IN FAVOR AND TWO OPPOSED.

AND WITH THAT MAYOR I'LL STOP SHARE AND BE GLAD TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD SIR, THANK YOU. ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF ON THIS ITEM? COUNCILMAN VERA. THANK YOU.

WILL, IS WILL THERE? OK. IS THIS THE ONE THAT WAS ACROSS THE STREET, MOVING ACROSS THE STREET? THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

I'LL DEFER THAT TO THE APPLICANT.

[INAUDIBLE] THERE'S A STARBUCKS ACROSS JUPITER.

YEAH, THERE'S ONE ON THE CORNER.

YES. I WAS WONDERING IF THEY JUST MOVED ACROSS.

ALL RIGHT, SIR. ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? WE DO HAVE THE APPLICANT QUEUING UP HERE.

ALL RIGHT. WE WILL GO AHEAD.

WE WILL GO AHEAD AND MOVE TO THE APPLICANT.

[00:15:02]

THEY ARE RE LOWING TO A DRIVE THROUGH ON THIS PARCEL.

SO, YES, THEY ARE RELOWING FROM RICHARDSON INTO GARLAND.

ALL RIGHT, SO DO YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION YOU'D LIKE TO GIVE US ON THE ON THE.

NO, SIR, NOT AT THIS MOMENT, STAFF DID A GREAT JOB OF THE OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT.

WE'VE WORKED WITH STARBUCKS IN THE PAST.

WE'VE DONE A LOT OF PROJECTS WITH THEM.

IT'S ABOUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME OR THE COMPANY OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, LET ME KNOW. VERY GOOD.

LET'S SEE COUNCIL MEMBER MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. MR. JOHNSON, FIRST WELCOME TO GARLAND, WE'RE I THINK YOU MADE A WISE CHOICE TO MOVE ACROSS THE BOARDER. AND MY ONLY OTHER QUESTION IS, HOW SOON CAN YOU BE OPEN AND SERVING COFFEE? YEAH, WE'RE TARGETING SOMETIME IN THE SUMMER OF NEXT YEAR.

OBVIOUSLY, WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH A LITTLE BIT OF THE PLAT PROCESS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

BUT OUR CONSTRUCTION WORK, WE'RE A LITTLE BIT AHEAD OF SCHEDULE RIGHT NOW.

I BELIEVE OUR TURNOVER DATE IN THE LEAST IS SOMETIME AT THE END OF JUNE.

I WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK AND LOOK FOR THE EXACT DATE, BUT WE ARE AHEAD OF THAT SCHEDULE.

I MEAN, DON'T TELL STARBUCKS, BUT WE'RE TRYING TO WE'RE TRYING TO GET IT OPEN BY MAY.

SO THAT'S KIND OF WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW IN OUR SCHEDULE.

EXCELLENT. THANK YOU, SIR.

GOOD LUCK. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT ON THIS ITEM? I SEE NONE. AND IS THERE ANY ONE.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA. GO AHEAD.

MR. JOHNSON. THANK YOU MAYOR.

MR. JOHNSON. IS THIS GOING TO BE BIGGER THAN THE OTHER ONE ACROSS THE STREET? I BELIEVE IT IS, SIR.

I DON'T HAVE THE EXACT DIMENSIONS ON THE ONE ACROSS THE STREET, BUT I MEAN, IT'S GOING TO HAVE A DRIVE THROUGH AND THAT'S GOING TO HAVE A NICE, NICER PATIO AREA THAN ACROSS THE STREET IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE PROTOTYPE STANDALONE STARBUCKS THAT YOU SEE THAT INSTEAD OF TWO TENANT BUILDING THAT THEY KIND OF SHOEHORNED IN ACROSS THE STREET.

OH, THANK YOU. I'VE GONE TO THE OTHER ONE, AND I'M GLAD YOU'RE DOING THIS BIG ONE OVER HERE. YEAH, IT'LL BE A LOOK A LOT NICER FOR THE COMMUNITY, THAT'S FOR SURE.

AND I ALWAYS LIKE IMMIGRATION WHEN THEY COME FROM RICHARDSON.

YES, SIR. THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? COUNCIL, I HAVE NO ONE IN THE QUEUE, MAYOR PRO TEM, THIS IS IN YOUR DISTRICT.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR, I'M ALSO HAPPY WHENEVER ANYONE DECIDES TO MAKE THE MOVE ACROSS THE STREET FROM RICHARDSON TO GARLAND, AND I'M HAPPY TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE SPECIFIC USE PROVISION AND THE SITE PLAN FOR THIS PROJECT.

OK, I HAVE A MOTION BY MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK TO APPROVE.

THAT WOULD BE FOR ITEMS 9A AND 9B AND A SECOND? I HAVE LOTS OF SECONDS, BUT I THINK COUNCILMAN MOORE CAUGHT MY EYE THE FIRST TIME.

SO WE WILL GO WITH THAT AND COUNCIL WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION.

PLEASE VOTE. AND THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU, COUNCIL.

AND OUR NEXT ITEM IS ITEM 9C, THIS IS ALSO HAS TWO PARTS, 9C CONSIDER A REQUEST BY

[Items 9C & 9D]

RANDALL T. WILSON TO RENEW A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION FOR AN EXISTING RECYCLING SALVAGE YARD FOR A TIME PERIOD OF TWENTY FIVE YEARS.

THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT 1340 HEBRON DRIVE IN DISTRICT TWO.

THE SECOND PART IS TO CONSIDER A SITE PLAN.

SAME APPLICANT, SAME ADDRESS.

MR. GUERIN.

YES SIR.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL, THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO CONTINUE THE OPERATION OF AN EXISTING RECYCLING SALVAGE YARD. THE LOCATION IS 1340.

HEBRON DRIVE.

THE APPLICANT AND OWNER IS RANDALL T.

WILSON.

SITE IS APPROXIMATELY 2.7 ACRES AND THE ZONING IS INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT.

HERE'S THE GENERAL LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT SITE.

AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, IT IS OUTLINED IN THE TEAL HERE.

[00:20:05]

IT IS ACCESSED FROM HEBRON DRIVE.

AND YOU CAN SEE COMMERCE STREET OVER HERE, BOTH COMMERCE AND HEBRON CONTINUE UP TO HIGHWAY 66, WHICH IS LOCATED UP HERE.

THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS SURROUNDED MOSTLY BY OTHER PROPERTIES THAT ARE ZONED INDUSTRIAL.

THE CITY OF GARLAND RECYCLING CENTER AND TRANSFER STATION IS LOCATED OVER HERE TO THE EAST. AND ACROSS THE STREET IS A CITY OF GARLAND WATER TOWER AND ATMOS ENERGY FACILITY AND A SELF STORAGE FACILITY.

AND TO THE SOUTH SORT OF SOUTHWEST, BORDERING THE SUBJECT PROPERTIES, THE RAILROAD AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT IS PRETTY HEAVILY TREED.

LOTS OF TREES AND A CREEK, AND THE NEAREST RESIDENTIAL HOME IS OVER EIGHT HUNDRED FEET AWAY TO THE SOUTH. THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IDENTIFIES THIS AREA'S BUSINESS CENTER.

AS I KIND OF ALLUDED TO IN THE PREVIOUS SLIDE, THE USES IN THIS AREA ARE PRIMARILY UTILITARIAN IN NATURE, A MIX OF UTILITIES, LIGHT INDUSTRIAL, SOME CITY OF GARLAND FACILITIES, OF COURSE.

HERE'S SOME PHOTOS ON THE LEFT IS LOOKING INTO THE SUBJECT SITE FROM HEBRON DRIVE.

THE PHOTO OVER HERE IS LOOKING ACROSS THE STREET TO THE NORTH AT THE ATMOS ENERGY SITE.

WRONG DIRECTION.

TO THE NORTHWEST IS THE THIS IS THE CUBE SMART SELF STORAGE FACILITY.

AND THIS PHOTO ON THE RIGHT IS THE VACANT PROPERTY TO THE EAST OF THE SUBJECT SITE.

HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY LOOKING FROM HEBRON DRIVE.

THIS PHOTO ON THE RIGHT IS GOING A LITTLE FURTHER WEST ALONG HEBRON DRIVE THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS SLOPED DOWN AS YOU KIND OF CONTINUE WEST ALONG HEBRON DRIVE.

HEBRON DRIVE IS ELEVATED ABOVE THE SUBJECT PROPERTY A BIT, MAKING A BIT EASIER TO KIND OF SEE OVER THE EXISTING EIGHT FOOT FENCE.

YOU CAN KIND OF SEE SOME OF THE EQUIPMENT IN THERE A BIT.

HERE'S A SITE PLAN. THE APPLICANT IS NOT PROPOSING ANY CHANGES TO THE SITE PLAN, NO EXTENSIONS ARE PROPOSED.

THE APPLICANT IS SIMPLY REQUESTING TO RENEW THE SUP FOR AN ADDITIONAL TIME PERIOD OF TWENTY FIVE YEARS. THE SUP WAS APPROVED IN 2006 FOR 15 YEARS.

AS PART OF THAT, APPROVAL THE APPLICANT WAS REQUIRED TO BUILD AN EIGHT FOOT METAL FENCE WITH LANDSCAPING AS FAR AS THE SCREENING GOES.

AND THERE WAS ALSO AN SUP CONDITION THAT REQUIRED THE STORAGE PILES TO BE LOCATED TOWARDS THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY SO AS TO MINIMIZE THE VIEW FROM HEBRON DRIVE.

SO THE APPLICANT HAS ADHERED TO THOSE APPROVED SUP CONDITIONS.

I SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT ON SITE CIRCULATION IS PROVIDED SO THERE'S NO TRUCK OR TRAFFIC INTERFERENCE ON TO HEBRON DRIVE.

I SHOULD ALSO MENTION THE APPLICANT HAS NOT REQUESTED ANY DEVIATIONS FROM THIS REQUEST.

THE PROPOSAL MEETS THE APPROVED SUP CONDITIONS AS APPROVED BY THE COUNCIL IN 2006.

THE APPLICANT HAS REVIEWED THE GDC STANDARDS AS WELL AND CONCURS WITH THEM.

THE APPLICANT IS AWARE OF THE PARTICULAR STANDARD REGARDING SCREENING AND THE HEIGHT OF THE STORAGE PILES.

HE HAS MENTIONED THAT THE STORAGE PILES WOULD BE COMING DOWN IN HEIGHT AND HE CAN SPEAK FURTHER TO THAT. IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS ON THE PLANS OF LOWERING THE MATERIALS PILES.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING THE EXTENSION TO BE SET FOR A PERIOD OF TWENTY FIVE YEARS, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE/ STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST OF THE SUP AND THE PLAN, JUST SOME COMMENTARY EQUIPMENT AND SOME STORAGE MATERIAL PILES CAN BE SEEN FROM THE RIGHT OF WAY.

IN ADDITION, PORTIONS OF THE SITE ARE BELOW THE STREET LEVEL, MAKING EQUIPMENT AND OTHER MATERIALS MORE VISIBLE FROM CERTAIN AREAS ALONG HEBRON DRIVE.

ADDITIONAL FENCING OR LANDSCAPING COULD BE CONSIDERED ALONG THESE LOCATIONS.

HOWEVER, THE LARGE PILES OF MATERIALS APPEAR TO BE LOCATED TOWARDS THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY, WHICH IS IN KEEPING WITH THE PREVIOUS SUP CONDITION APPROVAL AND REMAINS IN THE DRAFT SUP CONDITIONS MOVING FORWARD.

THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL FOR TWENTY FIVE YEARS OF THE REQUEST OF THE SUP AND THE PLAN, INCLUDING CARRYING OVER THE SUP CONDITION REQUIRING THESE SALVAGE MATERIALS TO BE LOCATED TOWARDS THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY.

STAFF MAILED OUT 12 NOTIFICATION LETTERS FOR THIS ZONING CASE WE RECEIVED ONE IN FAVOR.

WELL, TWO, BUT THEY'RE FROM THE SAME GENTLEMAN AND ONE AGAINST.

[00:25:03]

AND THAT ONE OPPOSED WAS OUTSIDE THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

AND MAYOR I'LL STOP SHARE AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD. ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING, MR. GUERIN. [INAUDIBLE] CAN YOU BRIEFLY TELL US ABOUT THE CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT ABOUT TO THE GDC SINCE THE INITIAL APPROVAL OF THIS REGARDING SCREENING, SINCE THE APPROVAL OF THE ORIGINAL SUP IN 2006? CAN YOU BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT THAT PLEASE? SURE. WELL, SPECIFICALLY REGARDING SCREENING, THE GDC DOES REQUIRE FOR NEW FACILITIES.

IT HAS A MINIMUM EIGHT FOOT FENCE HEIGHT AND HAS A MASONRY REQUIREMENT.

HOWEVER, IT DOES PROVIDE A PROVISION THAT SAYS UNLESS OTHERWISE APPROVED FOR A SCREENING DEVICE. IN THIS CASE, THERE'S A METAL EIGHT FOOT FENCE WITH LANDSCAPING APPROVED SO THE GDC RECOGNIZES THAT.

BUT AS FAR AS NEW STANDARDS AT THE TIME IN 2006, IT DID NOT HAVE THE REQUIREMENT OF MATERIALS PILES NEEDING TO BE BELOW THE SCREENING DEVICE.

SO THAT IS A NEW CONDITION IN THE GDC THAT WAS ADOPTED IN 2015.

AGAIN, THIS WAS APPROVED IN 2006.

HOWEVER, IT SEEMS AT THE TIME OF APPROVAL IN 2006, THEY RECOGNIZED THIS CONCERN IN THE CONDITION AT THE TIME WAS TO HAVE THE APPLICANT KEEP THE MATERIALS PILES TOWARDS THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY. AND SINCE THIS IS AN EXPANSION, NOT A NEW FACILITY, DES THE NEW REQUIREMENTS WOULD APPLY TO THIS FACILITY.

I THINK SO. BUT I WANT YOUR EXPERT ADVICE.

SINCE THIS IS AN EXPANSION, THIS IS NOT REALLY A NEW FACILITY.

WELL, THEY'RE REQUESTING AN EXTENSION OF ITSELF OF THE TIME PERIOD, BUT THEY'RE NOT.

YES, SIR. BUT THEY'RE NOT PROPOSING ANY PHYSICAL CHANGES OR EXPANSIONS.

HOWEVER, IT IS SUBJECT TO THOSE MATERIALS IF THE COUNCIL IS REALLY A POLICY DECISION, IF THE COUNCIL WISHES TO IMPOSE ANY ADDITIONAL SCREENING DEVICES OR WHATNOT, THE APPLICANT REALLY, FOR THE MOST PART, IS MEETING THE STANDARDS.

AGAIN, HE IS AWARE OF THE MATERIALS PILES NEEDING TO BE LOWERED.

AND AGAIN, HE CAN SPEAK A LITTLE MORE TO THAT PLAN OF KEEPING THOSE DOWN.

BUT HE IS AWARE OF THAT REQUIREMENT.

THANK YOU I'LL SAVE MY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT.

THANK YOU MR. MAYOR. THANK YOU SIR.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? I SEE NONE. LET'S GO AHEAD AND GET THE APPLICANT QUEUED UP.

AND I BELIEVE THERE'S THE APPLICANT, SIR, IF YOU CAN UNMUTED YOURSELF.

THERE YOU GO, SIR, IF YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD AND WE'LL GIVE YOU TIME FOR PRESENTATION OR TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.

YES, SIR. RANDY WILSON, ADDRESS 705 WILLFORD WAY, HEATH, TEXAS.

OK, SIR, DO YOU HAVE A PRESENTATION OR ARE YOU JUST HERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS? I'M HERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, SIR.

ALL RIGHT. VERY GOOD.

I BELIEVE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A QUESTION QUEUE UP FOR YOU, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU MR. MAYOR. GOOD EVENING, MR. WILSON. ANY TIME I HEAR BUSINESS TALK ABOUT EXPANSION, I GET EXCITED.

SO CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU ON THAT.

I GET EXCITED WHEN I HEAR, THAT MEANS YOU'RE DOING WELL.

LET ME JUST ASK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE BECAUSE OF THE NATURAL ELEVATION OF HEBRON TO YOUR PROPERTY, IT SLOPES DOWN, WHICH YOU TALK ABOUT AND THE VIEW FROM HEBRON TO I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT YOUR EQUIPMENT, YOUR CRANES AND THINGS, I'M TALKING ABOUT THE ACTUAL YOU KNOW, THE ACTUAL MATERIALS AND THE.

THEY CAN BE SEEN FROM HEBRON ACROSS WHAT YOU'VE GOT NOW AS YOUR FENCING.

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR PLANS TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT THOSE MATERIALS ARE NOT READILY AS SOON AS YOU TURN THAT THAT THERE'S A CURVE THERE.

SO YOU'RE NOT LOOK THAT YOU'RE NOT LOOKING AT IT PILES AND PILES OF MATERIALS THERE.

CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT, SIR? THANK YOU. WELL, WHEN YOU COME PAST THE MINI STORAGE AND YOU MAKE THAT CURVE, YOU DO NOT SEE MY PILES ONCE IN A BLUE MOON IF THE MILLS ARE SHUT DOWN.

[00:30:03]

SOMETIMES YOU'LL CATCH THE GLIMPSE JUST A LITTLE BIT OVER THE BUILDING.

IT'S JUST A SINGLE STOREY BUILDING, BUT IT'S ACTUALLY THE BUILDING, I THINK MEASURES 18 FEET AT ITS HIGHEST POINT.

MY POINT IS THAT VERY RARE DO YOU SEE COMING AROUND ON HEBRON DRIVE ANY OF THOSE PILES BACK THERE. YOU'RE MORE APT TO SEE THEM COMING OFF OF COMMERCE STREET BACK AROUND, HEBRON UP OVER THE FENCE PERIODICALLY.

BUT THE MILLS HAVE BEEN WITH THIS COVID HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN AND THEN THEY'RE THERE ON AND OFF. I COULD SHOW YOU A TEXT MESSAGE FROM [INAUDIBLE] THEY JUST WENT INTO A TWO WEEK SHUTDOWN. FORTUNATELY, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO BRING THESE PILES WAY DOWN AND THEY'RE REALLY NOT TOO VISIBLE RIGHT NOW FROM THE ROAD.

SO, I MEAN, IT'S THE WAY I LIKE TO DESCRIBE IT.

THESE PILES ON EVERY SCRAP YARD IN THE COUNTRY, THEY BREATHE BECAUSE YOU'RE AT THE MERCY OF THE SMELTER IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO MOVE MATERIAL.

AND WHEN THESE GUYS CLOSE THE DOORS, THEN IT'S GOING TO COME UP.

AND AS SOON AS THEY OPEN, YOU KNOW WE HAVE MULTIPLE TRUCKS THAT WE RUN IN ORDER TO BRING THEM BACK DOWN. AND I HOPE THAT ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION.

BUT FROM WHERE YOU WERE SPEAKING OF COMING AROUND THAT CORNER, YOU'LL SEE THAT HITACHI CRANE THAT I BACK THERE AND SOME SEMITRAILERS ON THAT SIDE OF THE YARD, WE MAKE SURE THAT WE KEEP OUR PROCESSING EQUIPMENT ALONG THAT BACK FENCE BY THE DART RAIL.

AND I DON'T HAVE ANY PREPARED PILES ON THE FRONT SIDE OF MY BUILDING, WHICH IS ACTUALLY HALFWAY BACK ON THE PROPERTY.

AND THERE'S I DON'T HAVE ANY SCRAP PILES.

IT'S ONLY EQUIPMENT ON THAT ON THAT WEST SIDE AND ON TO THE EAST IS A VACANT FIELD.

AND THEN JUST BEYOND THAT FIELD IS THE TRANSFER STATION.

SO REALLY, THIS HAS BEEN AN IDEAL LOCATION FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS.

AND MR. WILSON, MY LAST QUESTION.

WHAT WOULD YOU DESCRIBE AS YOUR NORMAL YOU KNOW, ONCE WE GET PAST THE COVID IMPACT, NORMAL PICK UP, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS IF THERE IS IT, IF THERE IS SUCH A THING AS NORMAL, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY WOULD BE THE NORMAL HEIGHTS ONCE EVERYTHING IS MANAGEABLE, EVERYTHING IS, TRUCKS ARE IN AND OUT.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY WOULD BE SORT OF A NORMAL HEIGHT OF THESE SCRAP MATERIALS THEMSELVES? I CAN TELL YOU AGAIN, THEY KIND OF BREATHE.

THEY MIGHT BE TWO FEET TALL WHEN WE GET STRIPPED DOWN AND THEY MIGHT GO UP TO 10 OR 12 FEET TALL AND THEN WE HAVE TO PULL THEM BACK DOWN.

AND I ALSO HAVE ROOM THE LAST MEETING WE HAD, I VERY SIMPLY WENT OUT AND ASKED MY CRANE OPERATOR, THE PILES WHERE YOU COULD SEE THEM OVER THE FENCE.

AND I JUST HAD HIM REACH OVER WITH THE CLAW AND PULL THEM DOWN BACK RATHER THAN HAVE THEM STACKED UPWARDS HORIZONTALLY.

WE CAME BACK DOWN AND WE WENT VERTICAL WITH THEM.

SO IT'S REALLY NOT A PROBLEM TO MAINTAIN AND MANAGE THESE THINGS.

YOU KNOW, YOU GET A CRANE OPERATOR OUT THERE AND HE THINKS HE'S DOING A FAVOR, STACKING THE STUFF UP. AND I HAVE TO GO OUT AND ASK THE GUY, PLEASE PULL IT DOWN SO WE CAN'T SEE IT. SO IT'S NOT VISIBLE, BUT THE NORMAL HEIGHT OF THESE PILES WILL BE, YOU KNOW, LIKE I SAID, IT'S PROBABLY TWO FOOT TO 10 OR 12 FOOT.

I'VE GOT AN EIGHT FOOT FENCE, AND THAT'S HOW WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO MAINTAIN THESE THINGS.

OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. WILSON. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU SIR. ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? I SEE NONE. IS THERE ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? COUNCIL, I HAVE NO ONE ELSE IN THE QUEUE.

AND MAYOR, I'M READY TO MAKE A MOTION IF YOU'RE READY.

GO AHEAD. ALL RIGHT.

I WILL JUST SAY AS A PREAMBLE, IN ALL THE YEARS THAT THIS RECYCLING AND SALVAGE YARD HAS BEEN HERE IN THE DISTRICT, I HAVE NEVER GOTTEN ONE COMPLAINT, NOT ONE CODE COMPLAINT, NOT ONE NOISE COMPLAINT, NOT ONE ANY KIND OF COMPLAINT AT ALL.

AND I THINK MR. WILSON AND HIS BUSINESS HAVE BEEN A VERY GOOD NEIGHBOR.

SO BASED ON THAT, MAYOR, I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE TO APPROVE ITEMS C AND D AS PRESENTED.

VERY GOOD. I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL LADY MORRIS AND A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA TO APPROVE ITEMS NINE C AND NINE D AS PRESENTED.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? SEEING NONE, COUNCIL PLEASE VOTE.

[00:35:05]

AND THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

MR. WILSON, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME THIS EVENING, AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE'LL SEE YOU IN TWENTY FIVE YEARS.

COUNCIL, I APPRECIATE IT.

AND IT'S A PLEASURE DOING BUSINESS WE ARE NEIGHBORS DOWN THERE WITH THE CITY.

AND YOU GUYS HAPPEN TO [INAUDIBLE] SO THAT BEING SAID, I LOOK FORWARD TO A LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU. THANK YOU.

SO ON MILLER AND 1ST STREET ABOUT 9:30 AT NIGHT.

MY DAD WAS DRIVING ALONG WITH BUCKINGHAM ROAD AND 1ST.

1ST. I BELIEVE. AND AS HE WAS DRIVING DOWN, HE SAW I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS FOURTEEN INCHES, I DO NOT HAVE ANY CLUE.

BUT HE SAW FOUR PEOPLE.

I WAS ONE PERSON WAS ACCELERATING LIKE, REALLY FAST.

I MEAN, OVER THE SPEED LIMIT I KNOW KNOW HOW MUCH.

BUT IT WAS TERRIBLE.

HE GOT SCARED. HE CAME HOME SCARED BECAUSE HE CAME WITH THE CLOTHES BLEEDING.

I ASKED HIM WHAT HAPPENED. I WAS IN AN ACCIDENT AND HELPING OUT WITH WITH A PATIENT

[00:40:04]

BECAUSE I THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO CRUSH ME AND THEY CRUSHED DESTROYED CAR IN FRONT OF HIM. AND I MEAN, IT WAS TOTAL LIKE TOTAL CAR AND THE CAR FLIPPED OVER IN FRONT OF THE TIRES NEXT TO THE [INAUDIBLE].

I'M SURE YOU GUYS ARE FAMILIAR WITH THAT LOCATION.

AND ONCE THAT HAPPENED, HE SAW HE WAS WITNESS AND GET OUT OF HIS CAR AND ACTUALLY TOOK THE PATIENT OUT OF THE CAR, EXTRICATED PATIENT AND TOTALLY BLEEDING WITH THE LEFT ARM.

AND HE HAD TO STAY THERE.

THIRTY MINUTES TO HAVE A GPD OFFICER BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE COULDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH.

HE WAS AN INTERPRETER.

SO I WAS KIND OF WANT TO RECOGNIZE MY FATHER FOR DOING THAT.

AND NOT ALSO THAT IT WAS VERY SCARY, TRAGIC, TRAGIC ACCIDENT.

SO THAT WAS VERY WHEN I HEARD THE STORY THAT THAT REALLY IMPACTED KIND OF IMPACT IN MY LIFE. AND MY FATHER WASN'T THERE I WOULD BE REALLY SAD, THOUGH.

I THINK THAT'LL BE A HARD MOMENT.

SO I JUST WANT TO TELL A CITIZEN IT'S A STREET RACING PROBLEM THAT WE'RE HAVING TO CITY.

AND THAT'S THAT'S THAT'S THAT'S TERRIBLE.

BUT ANYWAY, APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH, MR. MAYOR. AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

IS THERE ANY EXCUSE ME, IS THERE ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE COUNCIL THIS EVENING? SEEING NONE AT 7:41, WE ARE ADJOURNED.

THANK YOU ALL. HAVE A GOOD EVENING.
