THANK YOU ALL.

ALL RIGHT, THE NEXT THING I HAVE HERE IS IT IS HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, AND WE HAD A PROCLAMATION FOR THAT, I GUESS, TWO WEEKS AGO NOW.

BUT WE HAVE OUR LOCAL GAFHA GARLAND ASSOCIATION FOR HISPANIC AFFAIRS DID RECEIVE A LETTER OF SUPPORT FROM CONGRESSMAN COLIN ALLRED.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, THE CONGRESSMAN COULDN'T BE HERE TO JOIN US, BUT THEY'VE ASKED THAT I COULD READ IF I COULD READ THEIR LETTER FROM HIM INTO THE RECORD.

DEAR GARLAND ASSOCIATION FOR HISPANIC AFFAIRS FROM SEPTEMBER 15TH TO OCTOBER 15TH, WE COMMEMORATE HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, A TIME TO RECOGNIZE AND CELEBRATE THE MANY ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY.

I WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO RECOGNIZE THE RICH CULTURE OF OUR HISPANIC COMMUNITIES IN NORTH TEXAS AND AROUND OUR NATION.

THE NORTH TEXAS COMMUNITY HAS MADE STRONGER BY OUR HISPANIC NEIGHBORS.

AS YOUR REPRESENTATIVE, I AM PROUD TO RECOGNIZE THE CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACHIEVEMENTS AND CHALLENGES ENDURED BY MY HISPANIC NEIGHBORS.

OUR DIVERSITY IS TRULY OUR STRENGTH AND THE IMPORTANT IMPACT OF OUR HISPANIC COMMUNITIES HAVE HELPED TO FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION.

ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS GARLAND ASSOCIATION FOR HISPANIC AFFAIRS ALLOW FUTURE GENERATIONS TO LEARN ABOUT THE IMPACTS OF THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY IN NORTH TEXAS AND CONTINUE THE TRADITIONS AND HERITAGE OF OUR GROWING HISPANIC AMERICAN POPULATION.

ADDITIONALLY, AS ACTIVE MEMBERS ON BOARDS AND COMMITTEES ACROSS THE CITY OF GARLAND, YOUR SPIRIT OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT AND EDUCATION REGARDING THE NEEDS OF THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY IS NECESSARY AND ADMIRABLE.

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SERVICE TO THE CITY OF GARLAND AND THE NORTH TEXAS REGION.

IT IS AN HONOR TO REPRESENT THE 30 SECOND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT WHERE I WAS BORN AND RAISED.

SO TOGETHER WE CELEBRATE HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH, AND I THANK YOU FOR REPRESENTING THE BEST OF THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS.

SINCERELY, COLIN ALLRED, MEMBER OF CONGRESS.

AND THEN WE HAVE ONE MORE RECOGNITION FOR THIS EVENING PROCLAMATION.

THIS IS IN HONOR OF NATIONAL LONG TERM CARE RESIDENTS RIGHTS MONTH, WHEREAS THE CHARTER OF RESIDENCE RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES COVERS ISSUES OF DIGNITY AND RESPECT, INDIVIDUAL CHOICE, PERSONAL PRIVACY, FREEDOM OF SPEECH, CULTURE AND RELIGION.

WHEREAS RESIDENTS RIGHTS ARE GUARANTEED BY THE FEDERAL NINETEEN EIGHTY SEVEN

[00:10:01]

NURSING HOME REFORM LAW.

NURSING HOMES MUST MEET FEDERAL RESIDENTS RIGHTS REQUIREMENTS IF THEY PARTICIPATE IN MEDICARE OR MEDICAID.

SOME STATES HAVE RESIDENTS RIGHTS IN STATE LAW OR REGULATION FOR NURSING HOMES, LICENSED ASSISTED LIVING, ADULT CARE HOMES AND OTHER BOARD AND CARE FACILITIES.

A PERSON LIVING IN A LONG TERM CARE FACILITY MAINTAINS THE SAME RIGHTS AS AN INDIVIDUAL IN THE LARGER COMMUNITY, WHEREAS ALL RESIDENTS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THEIR RIGHTS SO THEY MAY BE EMPOWERED TO LIVE WITH DIGNITY AND SELF-DETERMINATION.

WHEREAS WE WISH TO HONOR AND CELEBRATE THOSE CITIZENS TO RECOGNIZE THEIR RICH INDIVIDUALITY AND TO REAFFIRM THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE AND PARTICIPATE POLITICALLY, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO HAVE A SAY IN THEIR CARE.

WE'LL MAKE SURE WE GET YOU QUEUED UP FOR THE CASE THAT YOU'RE HERE FOR, THE FIRST ITEM WE

[9. Hold a Public Hearing Regarding the use of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funds]

HAVE TONIGHT UNDER INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATIONS ITEM NINE.

HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING THE USE OF AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT FUNDS OTHERWISE KNOWN AS ARPA.

I DON'T KNOW.

DO WE HAVE A BRIEF PRESENTATION OR MR. WATSON? GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

WE'RE OPENING UP THE PUBLIC HEARING, WE'VE HAD SEVERAL QUESTIONS THAT HAVE CENTERED AROUND WHAT IS ELIGIBLE FOR AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN FUNDS AND WHAT IS NOT ELIGIBLE, AND IN PARTICULAR, THERE ARE FIVE CATEGORIES OF USE FOR AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN FUNDS, AND THERE HAS BEEN QUESTIONS ON HOW, PARTICULARLY WITH CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS THAT THE COUNCIL HAS BEEN DISCUSSING OVER THE LAST MONTH, HOW THEY FIT INTO A PARTICULAR CATEGORY CALLED THE LOST REVENUE CATEGORY.

SO I WANTED TO JUST QUICKLY GO OVER WHAT IS INELIGIBLE AND THEN TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS LOST REVENUE CATEGORY AND HOW THE CALCULATION WORKS AND HOW WHAT, WHAT ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS ARE UNDER THIS PARTICULAR CATEGORY.

SO TO START, I JUST WANT TO BRIEFLY GO OVER ALL THE INELIGIBLE USES AND THIS IS INELIGIBLE NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER WHAT CATEGORY YOU'RE TRYING TO PUT IT IN.

BASED ON THE FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS FROM THE UNITED STATES TREASURER, WE CANNOT USE THE FUNDS FOR ANY OF THESE CATEGORIES.

THE FIRST IS WHAT THEY CALL REDUCTION IN TAX REVENUE AND WHAT THEY MEAN IS A REDUCTION IN OUR TAX RATE.

THEY WANT THE FUNDS TO BE PUT INTO THE ECONOMY.

THEY DON'T WANT US TO HOLD ON TO THE FUNDS OR LOWER TAX RATES IN ORDER TO TO EAT UP THE FUNDS, SO TO SPEAK.

ANOTHER IS TO DEPOSIT INTO PENSION FUNDS.

WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THIS TO PAY FOR ANY OF THE LIABILITIES OR ANY OF THE PAYGO THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH OUR TEAMS OR US.

USED AS A NONFEDERAL MATCH FOR OTHER FEDERAL PROGRAMS, THIS IS A FEDERAL REQUIREMENT THAT'S BEEN IN PLACE FOR QUITE A WHILE FOR PRETTY MUCH ANY GRANT, BASICALLY,

[00:20:02]

MEANING THAT YOU CAN'T USE THE FEDERAL FUNDS TO MATCH ANOTHER FEDERAL PROGRAM.

FUNDING DEBT SERVICE, WE CAN'T UTILIZE IT TO PAY DOWN OUR DEBT, FUND, LEGAL SETTLEMENTS OR JUDGMENTS AND DEPOSIT INTO A RAINY DAY FUND, MEANING WE CAN'T SIMPLY PUT IT INTO OUR FUND BALANCES AND FOR OUR FUTURE USE AND THEN FUND GENERAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER LIMITING FACTORS.

THE FIRST IS THE FUNDS MUST BE OBLIGATED BY THE END OF 2024, AND WHAT THEY MEAN BY OBLIGATED IS THAT CONTRACTS NEED TO BE IN PLACE FOR THE PARTICULAR ITEM THAT IS TO BE COMPLETED.

THE ACTUAL CASH OR THE SPIN NEEDS TO OCCUR BY 2026.

AND AGAIN, AS I MENTIONED, ANOTHER LIMITING FACTOR IS THAT THERE ARE FIVE ELIGIBLE USES FOR THE USE OF THESE FUNDS.

QUICKLY, HERE ARE THE FIVE USES IT.

FIRST ONE IS THE REPLACEMENT OF PUBLIC SECTOR REVENUE LOSS.

THERE IS A CATEGORY FOR SUPPORTING PUBLIC HEALTH RESPONSE, WHICH WOULD BE TESTING OR VACCINATION PROGRAMS WITHIN THE CITY ADDRESSING NEGATIVE ECONOMIC IMPACTS, WHICH WOULD A PARTICULAR CATEGORY HERE MIGHT BE RESIDENTIAL RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, WHICH WE ARE DOING THROUGH OTHER FEDERAL MEANS PROVIDING PREMIUM PAY FOR ESSENTIAL WORKERS.

AND THEN THE LAST IS A WATER, SEWER AND BROADBAND INFRASTRUCTURE CATEGORY.

AND OVER THE LAST MONTH WE HAVE PROVIDED CITY COUNCIL WITH A LIST AND THAT THEY DELIBERATED ON THAT LIST ON SATURDAY.

AND FOR THE MOST PART, WE ARE UTILIZING THE REPLACEMENT OF PUBLIC SECTOR REVENUE.

AND THE REASON WHY IS THROUGH THE REVENUE LOSS CATEGORY, THERE IS A PRETTY MUCH A BROAD LATITUDE OF THE USE OF THE FUNDS HERE.

THERE IS PRETTY MUCH A NON-EXCLUSIVE LIST OF GOVERNMENTAL USES THAT THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT HAS ALLOWED FOR YOU TO USE FOR THIS LOST REVENUE.

IN PARTICULAR, ONE OF THEM IS WHAT THEY CALL PECO OF INFRASTRUCTURE.

AND WHAT PAYGO MEANS IS THAT YOU'RE BASICALLY DOING INFRASTRUCTURE AND CAPITAL PROJECTS WITH CASH AVAILABLE FROM EITHER OF THIS FEDERAL GRANT OR CASH ON HAND RATHER THAN ISSUING DEBT.

AND THE WAY THE CALCULATION WORKS IS YOU TAKE YOUR PRE-COVID REVENUE, WHAT THEY CALL THE BASE YEAR.

AND FOR US, THAT IS FISCAL YEAR 2019.

IT IS THE FIRST YEAR PRIOR TO WHEN THE PANDEMIC TOOK PLACE.

AND THEN YOU TAKE WHAT THEY CALL A GROWTH RATE FACTOR AND MULTIPLY IT BY THAT.

AND THE GROWTH RATE FACTOR IS EITHER FOUR POINT ONE PERCENT, WHICH IS A FEDERAL REQUIREMENT, WHICH THEY JUST TOOK BASICALLY THE AVERAGE OF ALL COUNTY, STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS REVENUE GROWTH OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS.

OR YOU TAKE YOUR ACTUAL REVENUE GROWTH.

AND FOR US, IT'S FIVE POINT FOUR PERCENT, BUT YOU'LL NOTICE UP THERE, IT SAYS SIX POINT EIGHT AND THE REASON IS THAT THE CALCULATION IS ON A CALENDAR YEAR BASIS, WE OPERATE ON A FISCAL YEAR BASIS.

OUR FISCAL YEAR ENDS AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER, AND WE CALCULATE THIS IN DECEMBER.

SO THEY ARE ALLOWING YOU TO ADD EXTRA THREE MONTHS INTO THE CALCULATION.

SO IT BASICALLY MAKES THE RATE SIX POINT EIGHT FOR THE FIRST YEAR.

AND THEN YOU DO THAT, THEN YOU TAKE AWAY THE ACTUAL REVENUE.

BASICALLY, WHAT OUR ACTUAL REVENUE WAS FOR 2020 WAS TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION AND YOU HAVE YOUR REVENUE LOSS FOR THE ONE YEAR.

SO THIS IS THE REVENUE LOSS ACTUALLY CALCULATED FOR 2020.

WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO BACK AND CALCULATE THIS FOR 2021 AT THE END OF THIS DECEMBER, WE'LL DO 2022 AND 2023.

SO OF COURSE, THE QUESTION IS HOW ARE WE GOING TO BE ABLE TO UTILIZE FIFTY THREE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS TO THE REVENUE LOSS CATEGORY BASED ON OUR PROJECTIONS AS WE CALCULATE THIS EACH YEAR? WE FEEL THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THE REVENUE LOSS CATEGORY FOR ALL FIFTY THREE AND A HALF MILLION.

YOU SEE, IN 2021, WE'RE ANTICIPATING HAVING A FUNDS AVAILABLE TO US ABOUT NINETEEN POINT FIVE MILLION, 2023, ABOUT FIFTEEN POINT FOUR AND IN 24 IT'S ABOUT EIGHTEEN POINT SIX FOR A TOTAL OF FIFTY THREE AND A HALF THROUGH THIS CATEGORY.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS OR OR TURN IT BACK OVER TO YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

I DON'T HAVE ANYONE IN THE QUEUE AND WE DID HAVE DISCUSSIONS ON THIS ON SATURDAY.

SO AT THIS POINT, I WILL OPEN UP THE PUBLIC HEARING.

IS THERE ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? SEEING NONE.

WE WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND MR. MR. BRADFORD, WHAT WILL BE OUR NEXT STEPS THERE? MAYOR, WE WILL BRING THIS BACK TO THE...

THANK YOU, MAYOR WE WILL BRING THIS BACK TO THE COUNCIL AT YOUR NEXT WORK SESSION FOR A FINAL REVIEW.

AND THEN THE FOLLOWING NIGHT, THERE WILL BE A RESOLUTION THAT OFFICIALLY STATES THE COUNCIL'S DECISIONS.

THE NEXT TIME COUNCIL SEES THIS, IT WILL BE PART OF THE 2022 CIP.

VERY GOOD, THANK YOU, SIR.

[00:25:01]

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE WILL MOVE ON TO OUR ZONING CASES FOR THE EVENING.

HOLD PUBLIC HEARING ON 10 A, CONSIDER AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER SEVEN DOWNTOWN

[10A. Consider amendments to Chapter 7 “Downtown (DT) District” of the Garland Development Code to 1) create a Downtown Square (DS) sub-district and limit future uses allowed on the properties surrounding the Downtown Square, and 2) to eliminate off-street parking requirements in the Downtown Historic (DH) sub-district and proposed Downtown Square (DS) sub-district.]

DISTRICT OF THE GARLAND DEVELOPMENT CODE 2 ONE.

CREATE A DOWNTOWN SQUARE SUB DISTRICT AND LIMIT FUTURE USES ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY SURROUNDING THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE AND TWO TO ELIMINATE OFF STREET PARKING REQUIREMENTS IN THE DOWNTOWN HISTORIC DISTRICTS, DOWNTOWN HISTORIC SUB DISTRICT AND PROPOSED DOWNTOWN SQUARE SUB DISTRICT.

MR. GARRON.

YES, MAYOR, YOU ALL SEE THAT.

OK? YES, SIR.

JUST HAVE A FEW SLIDES.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

AS YOU RECALL, THIS ITEM WAS DISCUSSED AND ULTIMATELY POSTPONED FROM YOUR SEPTEMBER 21 MEETING TO THIS EVENING FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATION.

BUT JUST WANTED TO GO OVER A COUPLE OF THINGS REAL QUICK.

I WANT TO GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF THE TIMELINE OF THIS ITEM.

AS A REMINDER, THE DEVELOPMENT SERVICES COMMITTEE OF THE COUNCIL FIRST DISCUSSED THIS ON JULY 19TH, SPECIFICALLY REGARDING THE ZONING AROUND THE SQUARE.

AND THEN AGAIN ON AUGUST 16TH REGARDING PARKING IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA.

THE PLANNING COMMISSION HAD THEIR FIRST PUBLIC HEARING ON AUGUST 16TH WHERE THEY DISCUSSED IT AND ULTIMATELY POSTPONED AUGUST 30TH.

ONE OF THE REASONS BEING THAT THEY DIRECTED STAFF TO MEET WITH THE DOWNTOWN BUSINESS AND PROPERTY OWNERS, AND THAT MEETING WAS HELD ON AUGUST TWENTY FIFTH.

AND THEN THE CITY COUNCIL, OF COURSE, HAD YOUR PUBLIC HEARING ON SEPTEMBER 21 AND THEN THAT IS BEING PRESENTED AND DISCUSSED AGAIN THIS EVENING.

ADDITIONAL OUTREACH INCLUDED HAND DELIVERIES OF THE NOTIFICATION LETTERS BY THE DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT OFFICE STAFF AROUND THE SQUARE, AND THAT'S IN ADDITION TO THE STANDARD NOTIFICATION LETTER MAILINGS THAT THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT SENDS OUT, AS WELL AS THE DISTRIBUTION OF FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND FOLLOW UP OUTREACH TO THOSE WHO DID NOT ATTEND THE AUGUST 25TH MEETING.

FOLLOWING UP WITH PHONE CALLS AND EMAILS, JUST MAKING SURE THEY WERE UP TO SPEED AND THE OTHER ITEM I WANTED TO MENTION MAYOR, THERE WAS SOME DISCUSSION AT YOUR LAST MEETING ABOUT COMMERCIAL PARKING LOTS OR GARAGES.

THE KEYWORD IS COMMERCIAL THERE.

THE GDC DEFINES THIS AS A TEMPORARY OR LONG TERM PARKING FOR VEHICLES OWNED BY OTHERS FOR A FEE, SO IT MAKES SENSE TO REMOVE THIS FROM THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE ZONING CONSIDERATION.

AND WITH THAT REMOVAL, BUSINESSES MAY STILL HAVE ONSITE PARKING, AS SOME ALREADY DO.

SO I JUST WANT TO MENTION THAT, AND AS A BRIEF REMINDER, THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED TO ADD IN GENERAL OFFICE AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS BY RIGHT ON THE ZONING AND TO ALLOW APARTMENTS ON THE UPPER FLOORS ON THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE ZONING.

SO OK WITH THAT MAYOR? VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, THANK YOU WILL.

A COUPLE OF THINGS UNDER WHAT'S CURRENTLY PROPOSED.

I JUST WANT TO BE CLEAR.

FIRST OF ALL OUR DOWNTOWN DISTRICT, THE DOWNTOWN SQUARES HISTORIC DISTRICT, CORRECT, IT'S ON THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES AND WHATNOT? YES, SIR.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE ANY PROTECTIONS.

I THINK THAT WAS EXPLICITLY DECIDED BY THE COUNCIL.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY PROTECTIONS FOR THOSE BUILDINGS.

RIGHT.

THAT'S MY UNDERSTANDING.

OK.

SO UNDER THIS, THEN SOMEBODY COULD COME IN.

SOMEBODY DECIDES, YOU KNOW, SOME LAWYER COMES IN, DECIDES THEY WANT TO HAVE A PERSONAL, SO THEY WANT TO BUILD A BUILDING.

THEY WANT A LAWYER'S OFFICE HERE.

THEY COULD BULLDOZE THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE SQUARE AND BUILD A GENERAL OFFICE BUILDING THERE.

IS THAT CORRECT? YES, SIR.

PROVIDED THAT IT MEETS THE FORM BASED CODE AND THE GDC REGULATIONS FOR DOWNTOWN? YES, SIR.

BUT BEYOND THAT, THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO COME TO COUNCIL OR TALK TO ANYBODY ELSE, WOULD THEY? AS LONG AS THEY MEET ALL REGULATIONS? IT WOULD BE ABOUT RIGHT.

AS LONG AS THEY MEET BY REGULATIONS SO THEY COULD BUILD UP TO A FOUR STORY BUILDING, THEY COULD TAKE OUT THE WHOLE SOUTH SIDE OF THE SQUARE? YES, SIR, THAT'S POSSIBLE.

AND IF THEY WANTED THE WEST SIDE OF THE SQUARE TO BE THEIR PARKING GARAGE OR PARKING LOT, THEY COULD BULLDOZE THAT TOO AND BUILD A PARKING LOT THERE, IS THAT CORRECT? WITH THIS PROPOSAL, I THINK WANTED TO BRING THIS SLIDE THAT WE COULD REMOVE THAT AS A USE AS A LOT.

BUT AS IT CURRENTLY AS IT WAS BEFORE THE COUNCIL A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND AS IT'S COME OUT OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION, THAT WOULD BE PERMISSIBLE.

YES, SIR.

OK.

OR IF YOU HAD A SINGLE PROPERTY OWNER WHO DECIDED THAT THEY WERE UPSET WITH THE CITY, YOU'RE UPSET WITH DOWNTOWN, THEY COULD SAY, I'M GOING TO BULLDOZE MY BUILDING AND TURN IT INTO A COMMERCIAL PARKING LOT.

IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT IF IT WERE APPROVED? WITH THAT BEING ALLOWED ISN'T ALLOWED USE.

I MEAN, IF WE IF WE FOLLOW THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATION, I UNDERSTAND

[00:30:01]

YOU'RE NOW RECOMMENDING THAT WE TAKE IT OUT.

BUT YOU KNOW, THE LAST TIME WE MET, THE PLANNING COMMISSION HAD RECOMMENDED IT AND THE THE COMMITTEE CHAIR THAT IT CAME OUT OF IT HAD SAID THAT THEY EXPLICITLY CONSIDERED THIS AND HAD RECOMMENDED IT.

YES, SIR.

OK.

SO ALL OF THAT WOULD HAPPEN WITHOUT THIS, WITHOUT ANY OF THAT EVER COMING BACK TO COUNCIL.

IS THAT RIGHT? AGAIN IF, IF A DEVELOPER MEETS...

AS LONG AS IT MET, EVERYTHING DIDN'T REQUEST ANY VARIANCES, WHAT NOT, IT WOULD COME IN BY, RIGHT? OK, AND THEN SAME THING FOR PERSONAL SERVICES, PHARMACIES, FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS.

ALL OF THAT STUFF, IS THAT RIGHT? YES, SIR.

OK, THANK YOU.

NO FURTHER QUESTIONS, APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

I NEED ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

I SEE NONE.

MADAM SECRETARY, DO WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM? WE HAVE ONE SPEAKER ON THIS ITEM, TRAYC CLAYBROOK.

OK, VERY GOOD.

WHEN YOU COME TO THE PODIUM, IF YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

HELLO, MY NAME IS TRACY CLAYBROOK.

I LIVE AT 311 SOUTH 11TH STREET, GARLAND SEVEN FIVE ZERO FOUR ZERO AND I OWN A BUSINESS ON THE SQUARE, THE FROCKSY, 510 MAIN STREET IN DOWNTOWN GARLAND.

SO I COME TO YOU SPEAKING FOR THE BUSINESS OWNERS, NOT THE GDBA.

LET'S JUST GET THAT CLEAR.

OK.

SO REGARDING THE REZONING OF THE SQUARE FACING BUILDINGS IN DOWNTOWN GARLAND, OF WHICH I AM ONE TABLE SEVEN ONE IN THAT PACKET THAT WE WERE SENT IS NOT WELL THOUGHT OUT FOR THE FUTURE OF DOWNTOWN GARLAND.

SOME ISSUES HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED, BUT IT CONTINUES TO BE SHORTSIGHTED.

THERE WAS NO REAL DISCUSSION OF THE ECONOMIC VITALITY, BENEFITS OR LACK THEREOF OF MANY OF THE PERMITTED USES.

WE CANNOT CONTINUE WITH ANTIQUATED IDEAS IF WE WANT TO PUSH GARLAND INTO THE FUTURE.

AND AS A BUSINESS OWNER, TRUST ME, I DON'T NEED ANOTHER BANK OR PHARMACY OR CHURCH, WHICH I LOVE ALL THOSE THINGS AND USE ALL THOSE THINGS.

I DON'T NEED IT ON THE SQUARE.

I NEED ECONOMIC VITALITY.

WE NEED TO LOOK TO THE FUTURE AND IMAGINE THE DOWNTOWN THAT GARLAND CAN BE.

I ALSO FEEL THAT FOCUSING JUST ON THE SQUARE FACING PROPERTIES IS VERY SHORTSIGHTED.

AS DOWNTOWN GARLAND CONTINUES TO GROW AND BUSINESSES CHANGE, WE NEED TO BE READY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF A LARGER DOWNTOWN COMMUNITY.

THE CITY OF GARLAND IS INVESTING MULTIPLE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS NOT ONLY ON THE SQUARE BUT ADJACENT STREETS NORTH, SOUTH, EAST AND WEST OF THE SQUARE.

THESE IMPROVEMENTS WILL ENCOURAGE MORE PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC AND THE PROPERTIES THAT HOUSED THOSE BUSINESSES SHOULD BE WORTH THE WALK.

APARTMENTS ARE A MAJOR PLAYER DOWNTOWN AND THERE'S MORE GOING UP CLOSE ENOUGH FOR A BIKE RIDE OR AN ELECTRIC SCOOTER RIDE THAT WE MUST REALLY PAY ATTENTION TO THIS.

WE NEED TO PROVIDE THE ENTERTAINMENT AND CONVENIENCE AMENITIES THAT APARTMENT DWELLERS CRAVE.

THE STREETS BEYOND THE SQUARE ARE VITAL IN MEETING THIS NEED.

WHAT IS GOING TO KEEP THOSE RESIDENTS IN OUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD WHILE BRINGING IN NEW GIFTS NOT ONLY FROM OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS IN GARLAND, BUT FROM ALL OVER DFW? WE'RE BUILDING A SQUARE THAT IS A DESTINATION, AND THAT'S THE GOAL OF IT.

SO WHY ARE WE BUILDING IT FOR A SQUARE? OR ARE WE BUILDING IT AS A SPOKE IN A WHEEL THAT GOES OUT INTO THE REST OF THE COMMUNITIES OF GARLAND AND BRINGS PEOPLE BACK IN? THAT'S WHAT I'M HOPING WE'RE BUILDING IT FOR BECAUSE THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY, AND THAT'S A LOT OF EFFORT.

I WOULD LIKE A MORE IN-DEPTH CONVERSATION REGARDING THE PROPOSED USES AND A THOUGHTFUL PROPOSAL THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF GARLAND TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE.

WE WERE NOT GIVEN THIS CHANCE DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS.

THAT MEETING WAS SCHEDULED AND THEN THE DELTA VARIANT REARED ITS UGLY HEAD AND THAT MEETING GOT CANCELED WHERE THE BUSINESS OWNERS HAD ALL GOTTEN TOGETHER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO COME AND HAVE THIS INFORMATION SESSION AND OUR VOICES WE'RE GOING TO BE HEARD.

AND INSTEAD IT WAS FILL THIS FORM OUT ONLINE.

AND THEN WHEN WE GOT THE PROPOSAL BACK, IT LOOKED ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT DID BEFORE.

SO WE FEEL LIKE OUR VOICES HAVE NOT BEEN HEARD.

SO PLEASE TABLE THIS VOTE UNTIL A MORE MEANINGFUL DISCUSSION WITH ALL BUSINESS AND PROPERTY OWNERS CAN OCCUR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

[00:35:01]

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN OH.

HANG ON WE MAY HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU.

THANKS FOR COMING.

AM I ON.

I THINK I'M ON.

THERE WE GO.

THANK YOU FOR COMING DOWN TONIGHT WHEN.

YOU'RE BASICALLY ONE BUILDING OVER FROM THE OLD GARLAND FURNITURE, CORRECT? YES.

AND WHEN YOU HEARD OR LEARNED THE POSSIBILITY THAT THAT WAS GOING TO BE A MEDICAL CLINIC AS A BUSINESS OWNER, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION OR RESPONSE TO THAT.

SELL AND MOVE SOMEWHERE ELSE? OK, WHY AND.

I ACTUALLY I REMEMBER YOU TELLING ME THAT, SO I'M GLAD YOU REMEMBER TOO.

WHY DID YOU HAVE THAT REACTION? BECAUSE WE'RE IN AN ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT, AND THAT IS NOT.

IT TAKES UP PARKING NUMBER ONE, AND IT'S NOT VIABLE FOR WHAT WE'RE DOING DOWN HERE.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE ALL ABOUT COMING AND SEEING AND EXPERIENCING.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT YOU KNOW, OUR MOTTO FOR DOWNTOWN IS EXPERIENCE MORE.

AND I'M NOT SURE THAT GOING TO A MORALITY CLINIC IS EXPERIENCING MORE.

SO THAT WAS SUPER DETRIMENTAL TO OUR BUSINESS.

AND LET ME BE CLEAR, WE WEREN'T AGAINST HAVING IT BECAUSE I THINK THAT'S A GOOD THING TO HAVE IN GARLAND.

WE WERE JUST AGAINST HAVING IT THERE.

SO I UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT NOT WHEN YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE ORDERING BEERS AND CONCERTS HAPPENING AND YOU'VE GOT BASICALLY, YOU KNOW, LET'S JUST SAY YOUNG WOMEN OR WOMEN OF ALL AGES, YOU KNOW, GOING FROM THE TRAIN, WHICH WAS THE WHOLE POINT OF THEM CHOOSING THAT LOCATION AND WALKING ACROSS.

IT'S, YOU KNOW, LIKE, THAT'S.

WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY AND I DON'T WANT TO PUT WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH, BUT WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY THEN THAT AS A BUSINESS OWNER YOU WERE CONCERNED THAT AN INCOMPATIBLE OR NON COMPLIMENTARY USE WOULD DAMAGE YOUR BUSINESS ENOUGH THAT YOU'D LEAVE THE SQUARE ALTOGETHER.

ABSOLUTELY.

BECAUSE THAT IS A HUGE BUILDING.

I MEAN, AS OPPOSED TO ONE PHYSICIANS CLINIC, LET'S JUST CALL IT THAT THERE COULD BE FOUR VIABLE RETAIL/RESTAURANT ESTABLISHMENTS IN THERE THAT REALLY SUPPORT EXACTLY WHAT IT IS THAT WE'RE DOING DOWN HERE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, AND THANK YOU, TRAYC, FOR COMING.

THANK YOU FOR BEING ENGAGED.

IS THIS ON.

SAYS IT'S ON.

IT'S YEAH, OK, IALL RIGHT, GREAT.

AND JUST MAKING SURE YOU'RE AWARE THAT WHAT'S BEFORE US TONIGHT FOR DECISION, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WOULD BE PROHIBITED FROM THE SQUARE WOULD BE MEDICAL CLINICS OF ANY KIND.

ARE YOU AWARE OF OK? AND ARE YOU ALSO AWARE THAT GARLAND FURNITURE HAS NOW BEEN PURCHASED AND IS BEING.

ABSOLUTELY OK? SO I THINK WE'RE ALL PRETTY WIDESPREAD HAPPY ABOUT THAT TURN OF EVENTS.

ONE THING THAT YOU SAID, YOU SAID YOU WERE HERE REPRESENTING BUSINESS.

THE BUSINESS IS ON THE SQUARE, BUT NOT GDBA.

SO CAN YOU TELL ME BESIDES YOUR OWN BUSINESS, WHAT OTHER SPECIFIC BUSINESSES YOU ARE SPECIFICALLY REPRESENTING TONIGHT? YES.

THE KAREN WISEMAN COLLECTION INTRINSIC BREWING.

TOM DANOFF CONSTRUCTION, GARLAND DOWNTOWN.

NO, HE'S JUST GARLAND CONSTRUCTION.

THAT'S ROBERT SMITH MAIN STREET DELI, NOT THE CAFE, BUT THE DELI AND BOOGIE NIGHTS.

WE'VE ALL BEEN IN CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER AND ROSALIND AND THESE ARE ALL REALLY THE ONLY PLACES THAT ARE OPEN ON SQUARE FACING.

THE ONLY SQUARE FACING BUSINESSES THAT ARE OPEN EXCEPT FOR ROWLETT FLORIST AND I HAVEN'T.

I MEAN, I HAVEN'T ASKED, TALK TO THEM.

WELL, I HAVE BEEN IN VERY DIRECT CONTACT WITH ALMOST ALL OF THE ONES YOU JUST NAMED, INCLUDING TOM DANOFF.

COUNCIL LADY CAN I ASK YOU TO GET MAYBE PULL YOUR MIC UP A LITTLE BIT? WE'RE OK.

THERE WE GO THAT'S GOOD.

IS THAT ANY BETTER.

SORRY.

THANK YOU.

SO IN CONVERSATIONS, THEY HAVE BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE SQUARE REZONING.

I'VE HAD PRETTY LENGTHY CONVERSATIONS WITH CARY OVER SOME OF THE THE DETAILS THAT CAME OUT OF THE PLAN COMMISSION.

SO I HAVEN'T HEARD ANY OF THEM ASKING FOR A POSTPONEMENT.

AND IN FACT, THE CONCERN IS IF WE DELAY THIS, IF WE CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING, THE DOOR IS LEFT WIDE OPEN FOR ANOTHER USE THAT THE BUSINESS OWNERS AND PROPERTY OWNERS IN THE SQUARE WOULD ABSOLUTELY NOT WELCOME.

RIGHT NOW, THAT DOOR IS OPEN.

YEAH, I'M SO GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT POINT UP, BECAUSE WHILE I'M GOING TO

[00:40:05]

SAY THAT YOU KNOW I'M GOING TO, I'M TAKING IT UPON MYSELF TO ASK FOR THIS THING TO BE TABLED BECAUSE I'M THE ONLY ONE HERE WHO CAN ASK FOR IT.

SO HOWEVER, IT'S A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD, BECAUSE WHILE I WOULD LOVE TO SAY, HEY, LET'S JUST TAKE CARE OF WHAT'S SQUARE FACING AND DO THIS THING.

BUT IT'S KIND OF LIKE MAYBE WHAT'S GOING ON IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW, WHETHER YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH WHATEVER POLITICS IT'S LIKE, YEAH, BUT HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO LOOK INTO THE 14 BLOCKS THAT ARE GETTING ALSO RENOVATED DURING THIS THING? BECAUSE THAT MATTERS HUGELY MATTERS.

IT CAN'T JUST BE WHAT'S FACING THE SQUARE.

THERE'S NOT THAT MUCH RENTAL PROPERTY DOWN THERE.

I MEAN, WE GOT A HUGE BUILDING THAT RIGHT NOW HAS BEEN VACANT FOR THIRTY FIVE YEARS AND NOBODY'S DONE OR SAID ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

AND WHO KNOWS THAT THING COULD STAY THAT WAY.

AND NOW WE'VE GOT NO RENTAL SPACE BESIDES THE FOUR NEW SPACES THAT ARE GOING IN WITH MY FRIEND TOM'S BUILDING, WHICH WAS FORMERLY GARLAND FURNITURE.

SO I THINK IT'S I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE BEST WAY TO APPROACH THIS IS, BECAUSE I THINK IT'S SUPER SHORTSIGHTED TO JUST DO SQUARE FACING AND TRUST ME CARY AND I HAVE HAD MANY CONVERSATIONS ABOUT IT, AND HE TOO THINKS THAT'S SHORTSIGHTED.

NOW, DOES HE THINK IT'S SHORTSIGHTED ENOUGH TO NOT HAVE A VOTE TONIGHT? I DON'T KNOW.

HE WOULDN'T COMMIT TO THAT.

BUT WHAT ARE MY, YOU KNOW, WHAT ARE OUR WHAT KIND OF WORDS OR PHRASES DO WE GET SAYING, HEY, WE WILL LOOK AT THAT ZONING ON THIS DATE OR AGAIN, BECAUSE I GET IT.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE OWNED BUSINESSES DOWN HERE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS.

AT LEAST THAT'S THE WAY THEY MAKE IT SOUND WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT IT.

BUT LIKE I SAID, WE CAN'T CONTINUE TO GROW GARLAND IN ANY DISTRICT IF WE KEEP SAYING THINGS LIKE, THAT'S THE WAY WE'VE ALWAYS DONE IT.

THAT IS RIDICULOUS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE PROPERTY AND OPINIONS THAT ARE TIED UP IN WHATEVER MIRE THEY'RE TIED UP IN HOLD PEOPLE LIKE ME BACK.

AND WE ARE.

LOOK, YOU CAN LOOK AT MY BOOKS.

I AM COMPLETELY ECONOMICALLY VIABLE IN DOWNTOWN GARLAND AND I ONLY CONTINUE TO GROW THAT.

SO I THINK WE NEED SOME ASSURANCES THAT IT'S NOT JUST THAT BLOCK, BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO PUT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO A SQUARE THAT STOPS THERE.

NO, YOU'RE NOT.

THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU APPROVED.

SO IF WE DON'T DO SOMETHING TO GO NORTH, SOUTH, EAST AND WEST A LITTLE FURTHER OUT SO THAT PEOPLE FEEL LIKE WHEN THEY'RE WALKING DOWN THE STREET, OH, I'LL GO IN THERE.

OH, LOOK AT THIS.

THIS IS AN AMAZING SQUARE.

YOU KNOW, IT'S AN EXPERIENCE, AND THAT'S WHAT THIS HAS TO BE.

YOU'RE CREATING A DESTINATION SPACE.

AND THAT'S NOT JUST IN THE LITTLE BOX THAT IS THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE THAT IS ALL THE ARTERIES LEADING TO IT.

AND THOSE BUSINESS OWNERS WANT AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THAT BEAUTIFICATION AND THAT KIND OF ASSURANCE AS WELL.

MS. CLAYBROOK I HAVE SPOKEN EXTENSIVELY TO MANY OF THE BUSINESS OWNERS, INCLUDING CARY, ABOUT A SECOND PHASE OF ZONING THAT WE WOULD CERTAINLY CONSIDER THAT I WILL CERTAINLY CONSIDER AND I'VE ALREADY BEEN IN CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THAT.

BUT SEE, NOBODY'S SPOKEN TO ME ABOUT THAT NOBODY.

I ASSUME WITH SPEAKING TO CARY THAT HE PASSES THINGS ON.

DON'T ASSUME THAT.

AND AT ANY RATE, WHAT IS BEFORE US TONIGHT IS FOR THE SQUARE, WHICH IS WHAT GDBA OFFICIALLY ASKED US TO DO.

SO WHAT WE HAVE, THE GDBA NEVER OFFICIALLY ASKED ANYBODY TO DO ANYTHING, AND WE TRY.

WE PUT OUT A LETTER SAYING THAT WE WERE DISAPPOINTED, BUT WE NEVER ASKED ANYBODY TO DO ANYTHING.

NOW, AS SEPARATE BUSINESSES, WE'VE TRIED TO STEP UP AND DO THAT BECAUSE THE GDBA CAN'T REALLY ASK THAT.

I MEAN, WE CAN, BUT WE'RE, YOU KNOW, THAT'S NOT THE RIGHT WAY TO GO ABOUT IT AND WE KNOW THIS.

AND SO IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT MY COLLEAGUES THAT, YOU KNOW, WE ALL LIVE ON THAT SQUARE AS MUCH AS WE LIVE IN OUR HOUSES COULDN'T BE HERE TONIGHT FOR VARIOUS REASONS.

BUT I FEEL CONFIDENT THAT I'M REPRESENTING THEM VERY WELL.

AND NONE OF US FEEL LIKE ANYBODY HAS HEARD WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS.

AT ALL.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. I'VE GOT A QUESTION.

TRAYC.

[00:45:01]

GOOD EVENING, MA'AM.

HI.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR COMING DOWN TONIGHT.

I HAVE ONE QUESTION FOR YOU LISTENING VERY CLOSELY.

AND IT HAS TO DO WITH COMMUNICATION.

I THINK I HEARD YOU SAY THAT YOU RECEIVED COMMUNICATION, A QUESTIONNAIRE OR SOMETHING THAT CORRECT ME IF I'M MISSTATING THIS.

BUT I THINK I HEARD YOU SAY THAT THE ONLY COMMUNICATION THAT YOU GOT WAS A QUESTIONNAIRE TO FILL OUT AND SEND TO SOMEBODY.

BASED ON DISCUSSION THAT WE'VE HAD AND INFORMATION I'VE RECEIVED I WAS TOLD THAT THERE WERE DISCUSSIONS AND MEETINGS THAT TOOK PLACE.

I'M NOT GOING TO GET INTO THE PERSONALITIES, BUT WITH DOWNTOWN BUSINESS OWNERS, WHOMEVER THAT IS THAT NOT AN ACCURATE STATEMENT? THAT IS NOT AN ACCURATE STATEMENT.

THERE WAS A MEETING SET UP AND IT WAS FOR LIKE IT.

WE GOT NOTICE OF IT ONE DAY AND IT WAS THE NEXT DAY.

WELL, AS AN ENTREPRENEUR, I CAN'T DO THAT.

I MEAN, I'M OPEN FROM THESE HOURS TO THESE HOURS AND I CAN'T MEET YOU AT FOUR O'CLOCK.

SO AT THAT MEETING, THERE WERE ONLY A COUPLE OF PEOPLE PRESENT.

SO THEN WHICH WE SAID, HEY, NOT ENOUGH, LET'S DO THIS AGAIN.

ANOTHER MEETING WAS SCHEDULED, BUT THEN THAT'S WHEN THE DELTA VARIANT REARED ITS HEAD AND THAT MEETING GOT SHUT DOWN.

AND IT WAS LIKE, HAVE YOURSELF HEARD ON THIS? FILL OUT THIS EMAIL FORM, WHICH I DID.

KAREN DID.

WE ALL TRIED TO DO OUR DUE DILIGENCE AND DO THAT, BUT NOTHING HAD CHANGED ON THE PRESENTATION THAT WAS SENT OUT TO US WHERE IT SAID THIS IS WHAT'S CURRENTLY HAPPENING.

THIS IS THE PROPOSED CHANGES.

NOTHING.

IT'S LIKE ALL THE STUFF I TYPED IN THERE IT WAS LIKE NEVER HEARD.

SO WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS THAT YOU HAVE THERE'S BEEN NO DIRECT VERBAL COMMUNICATION.

NONE.

NOT WITH ME.

CITY STAFF, DOWNTOWN BUSINESS OWNERS HAVE.

NOT FOR ME, NOT FOR KAREN, NOT FOR THE TWO BUSINESS OWNERS I KNOW, ONE OF WHICH IS MY LANDLORD.

THE OTHER IS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS WHO OWNS TWO BUSINESSES DOWNTOWN.

THE RENTERS THAT HE RENTS TO, I MEAN, THERE'S A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD NO DIRECT CONVERSATION.

OK.

AND I'M GOING TO ASK I'M GOING TO GO AND ASK THIS, SO BEFORE TONIGHT YOU'VE HAD NO OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A DIRECT DIALOG WITH CITY STAFF ON THIS AT ALL BEFORE TONIGHT.

NO, NOT UNLESS I.

I MEAN, IT DOESN'T DO ME ANY GOOD TO SEEK OUT DISTRICT SIX COUNCIL.

I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I HAVE TO TALK TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE AND I HAVE NOT DONE THAT.

SO JUST TO CLOSE THIS TO UNDERSTAND, SO WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS THAT THERE WERE NO MEETINGS, THERE WERE NO IN-PERSON.

WHERE WERE YOU ABLE TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK SUCH AS YOU'RE DOING TONIGHT OR ASK QUESTIONS, IF THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.

NOT THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE.

I WAS NOT ABLE TO ATTEND THAT DUE TO THE SHORT NOTICE OR THE SHORT CALL OF THE MEETING.

AND THEN THE OTHER ONE, WHICH I PLAN TO ATTEND GOT SHUT DOWN.

AND I MEAN, THAT WAS THE ONE I WAS EXPLAINING TO YOU WHERE I EMAILED MY, BUT I GOT NO RESPONSE FROM THAT.

OK.

AND AT ANY TIME, DID YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUBMIT QUESTIONS OR ISSUES TO CITY STAFF, WHICH YOU RECEIVED RESPONSES OR YOU DIDN'T? OR DID YOU.

NO.

DID YOU SUBMIT SOME QUESTIONS OR ANY ISSUES? WELL, I JUST TRYING TO UNDERSTAND.

SURE, I FILLED OUT THE ONLINE FORM SINCE WE COULDN'T MEET IN PERSON FOR THAT PARTICULAR MEETING.

I'M SORRY, I DON'T REMEMBER THE DATE, BUT IT WAS WHEN THE DELTA VARIANT WAS KIND OF SWINGING UP AND YOU ALL CLOSED THE CITY BUILDINGS BACK DOWN FOR THIS KIND OF THING AND YOU WENT BACK ONLINE.

AND SO IT SAID TO HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD FILL OUT THIS.

GO ONLINE.

I WROTE IT DOWN.

I SENT IT TO LETITIA AND SAID, HERE IT WAS.

IT PROBABLY WAS ACTUALLY HUNTER AT THAT TIME.

HERE'S MY RESPONSES.

KAREN DID THE SAME, CARY DID THE SAME, BUT THEN HE SENT US A LINK THAT WE COULD REITERATE THOSE RESPONSES.

SO I DID WHAT TWO OF THOSE? I GOT AN EMAIL RESPONSE SAYING YOUR INFORMATION HAS BEEN RECEIVED AND THAT'S THE LAST I HEARD FROM IT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

SIR.

I THINK THAT'S IT.

OK.

MADAM SPEAKER, DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT

[00:50:06]

YOU SAID EARLIER? THERE ARE NO ADDITIONAL SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM.

OK, THANK YOU.

CAN WE GET SOME CLARIFICATION ON THE MEETING? SURE.

SO JUST OUTREACH TO OUR NEIGHBORS DOWNTOWN.

SO WE HAVE WHAT'S OFFICIALLY REQUIRED IN TERMS OF NOTIFICATION.

SO THERE WERE TWO PLANNED COMMISSION MEETINGS SO FAR AND THERE'S BEEN A CITY COUNCIL MEETING AS WELL.

ALL OF THOSE HAVE BEEN PUBLIC HEARINGS.

AND SO ANYBODY? THE ZONE ITSELF AROUND THE SQUARE AND WITHIN IS A FOUR HUNDRED FEET WILL WOULD HAVE BEEN WOULD HAVE RECEIVED NOTIFICATION OF THOSE PUBLIC HEARINGS AND BEEN GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO COME AND SPEAK AT THOSE MEETINGS.

THAT'S OFFICIALLY WHAT WE HAVE TO DO.

UNOFFICIALLY, WHAT WE DID ON TOP OF THAT WAS WE HELD THE ZOOM MEETING THAT MR. GUERIN TALKED ABOUT EXACTLY BECAUSE WE ARE IN A PANDEMIC AND TRYING TO RESPOND IN A SAFE WAY AND TAKE QUESTIONS.

WE HELD A ZOOM MEETING, PERSONALLY INVITED ALL THE BUSINESSES AROUND THE SQUARE THROUGH THE DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT OFFICE.

THEY ALSO FOLLOWING THAT MEETING, THOSE THAT DID NOT ATTEND THE ZOOM MEETING, WE PERSONALLY REACHED OUT EITHER THROUGH PHONE CALLS OR VISITS TO THE BUSINESS WITH INFORMATION, THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND INFORMATION ABOUT THE REZONING.

SO THAT'S KIND OF WHAT WE DID, WHAT WE'RE REQUIRED TO DO.

WE ALWAYS DO THE MINIMUM, BUT WE ALSO WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND AND WORKED WITH THE DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT OFFICE TO MAKE SURE WE HAD PERSONAL CONTACT WITH EVERY BUSINESS OWNER AROUND THE SQUARE.

SO THERE WERE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO ASK QUESTIONS, AND WE CERTAINLY TOOK A LOT OF QUESTIONS AND TRIED TO RESPOND TO THOSE AS BEST WE COULD.

SO THAT'S AGAIN, SOME OF THE EFFORTS THAT WE DID FOR OUTREACH.

GOOD.

VERY GOOD.

HANG ON ONE SECOND.

COUNCIL MEMBER MOORE.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

IS YOUR QUESTION FOR STAFF.

YES.

OK.

BEFORE HE SITS DOWN.

YEAH.

DO YOU RECALL ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR WITH MS. CLAYBORN IS THAT HER NAME, THE LADY.

DO YOU RECALL RESPONDING ANYTHING PARTICULAR TO MS. CLAYBROOK? I DON'T PERSONALLY.

BUT WILL WAS IN THOSE MEETINGS AND LETECIA WITH THE DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT OFFICE WAS AT THOSE MEETINGS AS WELL CAN PROBABLY SPEAK TO ANY QUESTIONS THAT CAME UP THROUGH THAT.

RIGHT.

I DON'T RECALL THE ATTENDANCE OF THE ZOOM MEETING OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD THAT WAS HELD ON AUGUST 25TH.

WE DID HAVE A FEW FOLKS SHOW UP AND THEN WE FOLLOWED UP WITH THOSE WHO WERE NOT ABLE TO MAKE IT.

BUT MS. CLAYBROOK'S RESPONSES ARE IN YOUR PACKETS.

SHE DID RESPOND.

WE DID RECEIVE THEM THEY'RE IN THE COUNCIL'S PACKET, SO THERE ARE A FEW RESPONSES FROM HER IN THERE.

SO WE DID RECEIVE THEM AND THE COUNCIL SHOULD HAVE THOSE.

AND BASED ON WHAT SHE HAS JUST STATED, SHE GAVE A PRETTY GOOD LITANY OF PEOPLE THAT SHE FEELS SHE'S REPRESENTING TO INCLUDE INTRINSIC AND SOME OF THE MAJOR PLAYERS.

THEIR RESPONSES ARE HERE ALSO CORRECT? YES, SIR.

I DON'T.

I MEAN, I DON'T RECALL THE LIST OF INDIVIDUALS.

WHAT I'M TRYING TO.

BUT YES, SIR, THERE'S QUITE A FEW RESPONSES IN HERE.

YES, SIR.

OK.

SO WE HAVE RECEIVED RESPONSES FROM ALL THE BUSINESSES THAT SHE HAS JUST TALKED ABOUT.

OK, THANK YOU.

SO VERY.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

APPRECIATE IT.

AND LETECIA, I KNOW YOU, YOU WERE THE HOST OF THE ZOOM MEETING.

YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHO ATTENDED THAT AND SOME OF THE RESPONSES AND QUESTIONS WE GOT THERE.

YES.

THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

I COULD JUST KIND OF GIVE A BROAD OVERVIEW OF OUR OUTREACH EFFORTS AS FAR AS NUMBERS.

SO FOLLOWING UP WITH [INAUDIBLE] SHARED EARLIER, WE DID REACH OUT TO A COMBINATION OF PROPERTY AND BUSINESS OWNERS AND MEETING A NUMBER OF 30 EFFORTS.

AND THEN AS FAR AS AN EXCHANGE IN CONVERSATION, WHETHER THAT BE ATTENDANCE TO THE ZOOM MEETING OR FOLLOW UP CONVERSATIONS VIA PHONE AND IN PERSON, WE REACHED TWENTY THREE OUT OF THAT 30.

AS FAR AS THE ATTENDEE LIST FOR THE MEETING ITSELF, THE ZOOM MEETING CHAD JONES, TOM DANOFF, TOM BAILEY, KAREN WISEMAN, TRAYC CLAYBROOK, MAIN STREET DELI, LARRY AND SUZANNE HISHMEH AND JUST MAKING MY WAY DOWN MY LIST.

AND ALAN STAFFORD AS WELL.

[00:55:01]

I WILL SAY AT THAT TIME, WE DID HOST QUITE A FEW MEETINGS BECAUSE WE WERE SIMULTANEOUSLY UPDATING THE DOWNTOWN STAKEHOLDERS REGARDING THE LATEST TIMELINE ON THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT.

WE DID HAVE TO TAKE THAT MEETING FROM AN IN-PERSON SETTING INTO AN ONLINE SETTING ON RATHER SHORT NOTICE.

SO THERE WAS QUITE A BIT OF NOTIFICATION COMMUNICATION WITH A LOT OF VARIOUS ELEMENTS AT THE SAME TIME.

OK.

THANK YOU FOR THAT, ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.

OK, GOOD.

ALL RIGHT.

REAL QUICK, ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF BEFORE WE MOVE TO DISCUSSION? I SEE NONE.

ALL RIGHT, COUNCIL.

I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY, THIS ITEM HAS WORKED ITS WAY THROUGH THE PROCESSES.

WE'VE HAD SOME UPDATES HERE THIS EVENING.

AND OK, COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN, YOU'RE IN THE QUEUE.

THANK YOU, MAYOR HERE FOR DISCUSSION.

YOU KNOW, COUNCIL, WE TALKED ABOUT THIS A FEW WEEKS AGO.

I HAD SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS THAT I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU.

THE FIRST OF WHICH IS HOW WE GOT TO THIS PLACE IN THE BEGINNING TO EVEN BE CONSIDERING THIS, WHICH WAS THAT THERE WAS A USE IT WAS PLANNING TO COME IN ON THE SQUARE.

AND YOU KNOW, IT WAS A REALLY A NON COMPLEMENTARY USE TO THE OTHER THINGS THAT WE HAVE ON THE SQUARE AS A MEDICAL CLINIC.

MOST CONCERNING OF WHICH THEN WAS THE PARKING REQUIREMENT.

AND DESPITE THE FACT THAT SOME MIGHT SAY WE HAVE PLENTY OF PARKING OR THIS OR THAT, THE REALITY IS THAT, YOU KNOW, STARTING EARLY IN THE MORNING OR AT SOME POINT IN THE MORNING THROUGH THE END OF THE DAY, THERE'S REALLY NOT MUCH PARKING ON OUR SQUARE.

AND, YOU KNOW, HAVING GROWN UP IN A PART OF THE WORLD WHERE PEOPLE DIDN'T MIND WALKING SEVERAL BLOCKS TO GET TO SOMEWHERE, I CAN TELL YOU THAT TEXAS IS NOTHING LIKE THAT.

AND, YOU KNOW, FROM THE SQUARE, THE LIBRARY MIGHT AS WELL BE ON THE MOON.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, PARKING ON THE SQUARE IS IMPORTANT AND IT'S VALUABLE, AND THAT WAS THE REASON.

AND SO ALL OF THIS THEN BROUGHT IT TO US.

AND, YOU KNOW, YOU KIND OF GET THAT RESPONSE OF, OH MY GOD, HOW IS IT THAT THESE THINGS ARE ALLOWED ON THE SQUARE? WE NEED TO LOOK AT THIS RIGHT AWAY.

WE NEED TO FIX THIS BECAUSE THIS IS CRAZY AND THIS IS AN INCOMPATIBLE USE.

AND I HEARD FROM I MEAN, THE BUSINESS OWNERS WERE TALKING.

I THINK ALL OF US, ANYONE WHO WOULD LISTEN IN SAYING, YOU KNOW, WE WERE HEARING A LOT OF FOLKS SAYING THAT IF THE SQUARE WAS GOING TO TURN AWAY FROM BEING AN ENTERTAINMENT SHOPPING TYPE DISTRICT, THAT THEY WOULD MOVE.

AND I RECEIVED MANY COMMENTS TO THAT EFFECT.

AND THERE IS, YOU KNOW, AND THERE WAS A FEELING ON MY PART AND I ON THE PART OF SOME OTHER COUNCIL MEMBERS OF WHY ARE WE GOING TO? WHY ARE WE INVESTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO A DOWNTOWN SQUARE REDESIGN FOR SOMETHING THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE IN ENTERTAINMENT? YOU KNOW, WE'RE DOING ALL THIS REDESIGN TO CREATE AN ENTERTAINMENT TYPE ENGAGEMENT DISTRICT, AND IF WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT, THEN WHY ARE WE SPENDING ALL THAT MONEY? AND JUST LAST NIGHT, WE WENT IN FOR EVEN MORE.

JUST LAST NIGHT WE APPROVED ANOTHER $5 MILLION DOLLARS.

THAT'S $23 MILLION THAT WE AS A STAKEHOLDER, AS A CITY, WE'RE PUTTING THAT INTO THE SQUARE.

AND SO I THINK WE NEED TO ENSURE THAT THAT DIRECTION AND THAT'S HOW WE GOT HERE.

AND I'M VERY CONCERNED THAT WITH THIS LIST THAT CAME OUT OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION WITH ALL OF THESE PERMITTED USES BY RIGHT THAT WE'RE GOING TO PUT SOME FUTURE COUNCIL IN A REAL BIND BECAUSE SOMEBODY'S GOING TO COME IN.

AND I'M NOT KIDDING.

YOU KNOW, AND YOU KNOW, PEOPLE, PEOPLE MAYBE THINK I AM, BUT YOU KNOW, IT'S MY JOB HISTORICALLY HAS BEEN TO WHAT'S THE WORST CASE SCENARIO AND SOMEBODY COMES IN AND DECIDES THEY WANT TO KNOCK DOWN A COUPLE OF BUILDINGS BECAUSE THEY DO WANT TO BUILD A PHARMACY OR GENERAL OFFICE OR WHATEVER ELSE.

AND THERE IS NOTHING.

IF WE APPROVE THIS TONIGHT, THERE IS NOTHING THAT COUNCIL WILL BE ABLE TO DO TO STOP THAT FROM HAPPENING.

NOTHING.

AND THEY WILL ALL BE SITTING THERE LOOKING BACK SAYING WHAT IDIOTS APPROVED THIS? AND I JUST I DON'T WANT MY NAME AND MY PICTURE TO COME UP IN THAT SEARCH AS I'M ONE OF THE IDIOTS.

IT'S JUST, I MEAN, ALL I'VE ASKED FOR IS THAT ALL OF THESE USES THAT SEEM TO ME TO BE INCOMPATIBLE, THAT WE MAKE THOSE THAT SOMEBODY HAS TO COME BACK TO COUNCIL TO GET AN SUP.

VERY SIMPLE.

VERY.

[01:00:01]

IT'S NOT SAYING NO FOREVER.

YOU KNOW, MAYBE SOMEBODY HAS A GREAT IDEA AND THEY ARE GOING TO PUT A BODEGA OR SOMETHING ELSE ON THE SQUARE.

AND EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY COMES DOWN AND SINGS THE KUMBAYA AND SAYS, THAT'S AWESOME.

OR THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME OTHER KIND OF USE THAT WILL SAY THAT DOES FIT WITHIN THE VISION.

BUT IT'S RESERVING THAT FUTURE VOICE FOR FUTURE COUNCILS AND FUTURE STAKEHOLDERS ON THE SQUARE.

THAT'S MY CONCERN.

AND AS FOR THE CONCERN ABOUT, WELL, YOU NEED TO HAVE, YOU KNOW, WE'RE TALKING HERE.

AND I DO THINK IT WOULD BE GREAT TO SEND IT BACK TO CONSIDER EXPANDING IT ACROSS THE DOWNTOWN DISTRICT.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE PROTECTIONS FOR THESE BUILDINGS, FOR THESE BUSINESSES, AND THOSE ARE THE KINDS OF ASSURANCES THAT SMALL BUSINESSES NEED.

THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT IF THEY INVEST IN OUR DOWNTOWN, THAT THEY'RE NOT GOING TO END UP WITH AN INCOMPATIBLE USE NEXT TO THEM OR ACROSS FROM THEM OR TAKING UP ALL OF THE PARKING, WHICH IS THE OTHER PIECE TO THIS.

THE SAVING GRACE, SO TO SPEAK OF HERE'S A USE THAT'S INCOMPATIBLE COMING IN WAS THAT THERE WAS A PARKING REQUIREMENT TO PROTECT THE OTHER BUSINESSES ON THE SQUARE.

BUT THE PROPOSAL TONIGHT IS TO REMOVE THAT PARKING REQUIREMENT.

AND SO IF YOU DO THOSE TWO THINGS, IF YOU REMOVE THE PARKING REQUIREMENT BUT YOU STILL HAVE ALL OF THESE PERMITTED USES, I THINK WE'RE JUST ASKING FOR TROUBLE.

AND THAT'S JUST THAT'S NOT OK.

AND THAT IS US KIND OF PUNTING THE QUESTION AND CREATING PROBLEMS DOWN THE ROAD FOR FUTURE COUNCIL AND FOR THE CITY.

AND I THINK IT'S PARTICULARLY INAPPROPRIATE WHEN WE'RE TALKING, WHEN JUST LAST NIGHT WE TALKED ABOUT INCREASING OUR ANTE INTO THE POT THAT $24 MILLION DOLLARS.

SO AGAIN, I'M NOT SAYING WE SHOULD ABSOLUTELY SAY NO, BUT WE SHOULD ABSOLUTELY SAY IF YOU WANT TO DO THOSE THINGS, COME BACK AND TALK TO US AND TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS.

VERY SIMPLE, VERY EASY.

AND THAT'S WHAT I WOULD ASK AND RECOMMEND THAT THE COUNCIL DO TONIGHT.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

AS WE'VE WENT OVER THIS SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AND AGAIN TONIGHT, WHAT'S BEFORE US TONIGHT WAS A CAREFULLY BALANCED AND DELICATELY NEGOTIATED PLAN FOR THE SQUARE.

IT'S LIMITED INITIALLY TO JUST THE SQUARE, AND THERE WAS A GREAT DEAL OF OUTREACH TO STAKEHOLDERS.

I'VE SPOKEN TO ALMOST EVERY MAJOR, PROBABLY EVERY MAJOR PROPERTY OWNER WHO OWNS PROPERTIES ON THE SQUARE.

THERE'S THE CONCERNS THAT WE INITIALLY HAD WERE NOT THAT IT WASN'T RESTRICTIVE ENOUGH, IT WAS THAT IT WAS TOO RESTRICTIVE.

AND THE TRICK HERE IS FOR US TO DO NOT TOO MUCH AND NOT TOO LITTLE.

SO THE PUSHBACK WE GOT FROM PROPERTY OWNERS, FROM BUSINESS OWNERS BOTH ON THE SQUARE AND IN THE IMMEDIATE DOWNTOWN AREAS AROUND THE SQUARE IT WAS VERY HELPFUL AND THIS BECAME A NEGOTIATED AGREEMENT THAT MET WITH THE APPROVAL OF MOST OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED.

ARE WE EVER GOING TO MAKE EVERYBODY HAPPY? NO, NO.

MOST OF THE PUSHBACK CAME RELATED TO THE CHURCH ON THE SQUARE, AND MOST OF THAT CAME RELATED TO A MISUNDERSTANDING OF OUR LAND USE CREDITS AND ASSEMBLY HALL.

AND THAT WAS RESOLVED IN CONVERSATIONS AND WITH A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

HERE'S THE DEAL.

SEATTLE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE DON'T WANT TO DO.

SO WHAT THEY DID A FEW YEARS BACK IS BASICALLY WHAT COUNCILMAN AUBIN IS SUGGESTING, WHICH WAS MADE A VERY RESTRICTIVE DOWNTOWN ORDINANCE THAT WAS RESTAURANTS AND RETAIL, AND THEY DISALLOWED OTHER USES.

SEATTLE, JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, LAST MONTH DID A MAJOR REVERSAL ON THAT BECAUSE THEY CAUSED DISTRESS TO THEIR DOWNTOWN.

THEY HAD VACANT STOREFRONTS.

AND SO NOW THEY ARE SAYING, WE WANT MEDICAL CLINICS, WE WANT MANY MUSEUMS, WE WANT YOGA STUDIOS.

THEY'RE CALLING THEM ALL BACK IN BECAUSE IT DID DAMAGE TO THEIR DOWNTOWN.

WE DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

WE DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

SO WHAT IS BEFORE US TONIGHT IS A NEGOTIATED, BALANCED STEP.

IT IS LIMITED TO THE SQUARE.

I AM CERTAINLY OPEN AND THIS IS WIDELY KNOWN TO SEEING HOW THIS GOES AND THEN LOOKING AT EXPANDING IT TO THE SURROUNDING STREETS IN THE DOWNTOWN.

IF THIS GOES WELL.

BUT WHAT WE DON'T WANT TO DO IS OVERREACH.

SO MAYOR, WHEN YOU ARE READY FOR A MOTION, I WILL BE MAKING A MOTION THAT WE

[01:05:04]

APPROVE THIS.

TAKING THE PLAN COMMISSION'S THREE RECOMMENDATIONS, WHICH WOULD BE TO PUT OFFICES, FINANCIAL INSTITUTES AND UPSTAIRS APARTMENT DWELLINGS TO ALLOW THOSE BY RIGHT AND TO DISALLOW AND PROHIBIT COMMERCIAL PARKING LOTS AND PARKING GARAGES, AS ONE OF MY CONSTITUENTS HAD SUGGESTED.

SO WHENEVER YOU'RE READY FOR THAT, THAT WILL BE MY MOTION.

VERY GOOD.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

A QUESTION FOR COUNCIL MEMBER MORRIS, IF I MAY.

GO AHEAD.

COUNCIL MEMBER MORRIS YOU MENTIONED THAT AGREEMENT.

THERE WERE NEGOTIATIONS WERE HAD AND AGREEMENTS WERE HAD, AND I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT SPECIFIC AGREEMENTS WERE MADE AND WITH IN BETWEEN WHOM.

THESE WERE THE CONVERSATIONS, SOME OF THEM STAFF, SOME OF THEM WITH ME.

IN TALKING WITH TOM DANOFF AND TALKING WITH THE STAFFORD'S AND IN TALKING WITH ROBERT SMITH, WHO IS THE I BELIEVE THE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY WITH FROCKSY AND KAREN WISEMAN GOING OVER THESE THINGS AND TALKING ABOUT THE RESTRICTIONS AND SPECIFICALLY THE INITIAL PROHIBITION OF OFFICES AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTES.

TOM BAILEY IS ANOTHER MAJOR PROPERTY OWNER ON THE SQUARE.

THEY BASICALLY SAID WE ARE OPPOSED TO THIS WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT AND THEY SAID, BUT HOWEVER, IF THESE SPECIFIC AREAS ARE ADJUSTED AND AMENDED, IT HAS OUR SUPPORT.

SO THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

OK.

I JUST WANT TO BE CLEAR WHEN YOU SAY AGREEMENTS THAT.

OK, BECAUSE IT GIVES AN IMPRESSION THAT THERE'S SOME KIND OF ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENT THAT'S BEEN MADE WITH PEOPLE NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.

THIS IS NEGOTIATIONS WITH PROPERTY OWNERS AND BUSINESS OWNERS ON AND AROUND THE SQUARE.

AND THESE ARE CONVERSATIONS, WHICH IS HOW STAFF REACHED THEIR CONCLUSIONS AND HOW I REACH MINE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, MA'AM.

OK, I BELIEVE.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? I GUESS IT'S TIME FOR MY TWO CENTS.

I CERTAINLY KNOW ALL OF THE DISCUSSIONS THAT HAVE BEEN HAD.

WE'VE BEEN DISCUSSING THIS SQUARE FOR A LONG TIME NOW IN ALL FORMS FASHIONS, COUNCIL COMMITTEES, PLANNING COMMISSIONS, ET CETERA OVER THE YEARS.

AND SO I KNOW THERE'S A FULL HISTORY OF DISCUSSIONS AND THERE IS ALSO A HISTORY IN ALL OF THOSE DISCUSSIONS THAT THERE WAS NEVER, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, EVER BEEN 100 PERCENT AGREEMENT EITHER THROUGH THE CITY, THROUGH THE BUSINESS OWNERS, THROUGH THE PROPERTY OWNERS, ET CETERA.

BUT I DO KNOW THAT THE PLANS THAT WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH AS FAR AS REDEVELOPING THE SQUARE, I KNOW THAT EVERYONE IS EXCITED ABOUT THOSE.

I KNOW THAT EVERYONE IS ANTICIPATING WHAT THAT IS GOING TO BRING TO THE SQUARE.

AND I THINK IT WILL.

I THINK IT WILL MOVE US TO THE NEXT PHASE OF THIS OLD SQUARE OUT HERE.

AND I THINK THAT, YOU KNOW, I'M CERTAINLY NOT THE CITY HISTORIAN BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION, BUT I DO KNOW A FEW THINGS.

I MEAN, I DO KNOW THAT THAT SQUARE, JUST LIKE OTHER TOWN SQUARES AND OTHER MAIN STREETS, OUR MAIN STREET HAVE ALWAYS HAD A MIX OF USES IN THEM.

THEY WERE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENTS BEFORE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENTS WERE COOL.

AND SO THE PROPOSAL THAT WE HAVE BEFORE US, THAT STILL ALLOWS SOME OF THOSE USES I DON'T HAVE AN ISSUE WITH AND I WILL BE IN SUPPORT OF.

SO COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

GO AHEAD.

MR. MAYOR, I HAVE ONE HOUSEKEEPING ITEM.

I'M SORRY.

SORRY, GO AHEAD.

BEFORE THE VOTE'S TAKEN, THERE'S A BLANK THAT'S LEFT IN THE DRAFT ORDINANCE.

THAT'S BEFORE YOU ALL RELATED TO THE LAND USE CREDIT EFFECTIVE DATE.

WE LEFT THAT BLANK BECAUSE WE WEREN'T SURE WHEN THIS ORDINANCE WOULD PASS, AND SO I WOULD PROPOSE THAT PART OF THE MOTION BE THAT IT'S EFFECTIVE UPON THE PASSING OF THIS ORDINANCE.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

THANK YOU.

WITH THAT COUNCIL LADY MORRIS, I WILL OPEN THE FLOOR TO YOU.

GO AHEAD.

YOUR MIKES ON.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

WELL, MAYOR, I MOVE THAT WE APPROVE ITEM 10A BOTH NUMBER ONE AND NUMBER TWO UNDER THAT WITH THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE REZONING AND THE PARKING REQUIREMENT

[01:10:04]

AMENDMENT, INCLUDING THE PLAN COMMISSION'S THREE RECOMMENDATIONS, WHICH WOULD BE ALLOWING THE GENERAL OFFICE AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTES BY RIGHT.

ALLOWING SECOND FLOOR APARTMENT DWELLINGS BY RIGHT.

AND ALSO PROHIBITING COMMERCIAL PARKING LOTS AND GARAGES WITH THIS MOTION BEING EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE.

WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE ITEM AS PRESENTED WITH THE ADDITIONS FROM THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND THE ADDITION OF THE EFFECTIVE DATE.

I HAVE A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER AN AMENDMENT TO THE MOTION.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

AND WE CAN.

I GUESS SOMEONE CAN ASK TO DIVIDE IT IF THEY WISH, WHICH IS WITHIN THAT MOTION TO FLIP THE FOLLOWING USES TO BEING ALLOWED WITH A SPECIAL USE PERMIT AS OPPOSED TO PERMITTED BY RIGHT.

AND THAT'S FOR GYM, CONVENIENCE STORE, PERSONAL SERVICES FITNESS STUDIO, PHARMACY, TRANSIT STATION, FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN GENERAL OFFICE WITH 2ND FLOOR GENERAL OFFICE, PERSONAL SERVICES, FITNESS STUDIOS AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS BEING PERMITTED BY RIGHT ON SORRY, 2ND FLOOR OR ABOVE.

OK, WE HAVE A REQUEST FOR AN AMENDMENT AND I WAS DOING PRETTY GOOD WRITING IT DOWN AND ABOUT MIDWAY THROUGH THERE WERE MORE WORDS THAN I COULD WRITE THAT QUICKLY.

I BELIEVE YOU OFFERED THAT AS A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT OR AN AMENDMENT.

I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT I GOT LOST IN THE WORDS AT SOME POINT.

I DON'T THINK IT'S EITHER.

I THINK IT'S JUST AN AMENDMENT.

OK, I DON'T.

I'M REASONABLY CERTAIN THAT THE MOTION MAKER IS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT THAT.

SO WE HAVE AN AMENDMENT.

WE HAVE AN AMENDMENT ON THE FLOOR, AND I DO NOT SEE A SECOND FOR IT.

BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH ON THE AMENDMENT.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I JUST HAD A QUESTION OF CLARIFICATION FOR COUNCILMAN AUBIN JUST FOR CLARIFICATION.

OKAY.

WHEN YOU USE THE TERM GENERAL OFFICE, COULD YOU GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE AND I RAISE THAT BECAUSE.

SAY I'M A LAWYER OR AN ACCOUNTANT WHO WANTS TO HAVE AN OFFICE, THAT WHAT? I'M JUST USING THE TERM AS IT'S CONTAINED IN THE GDC.

OK, I JUST WANT.

SO I THINK MR. GUERIN CAN PROBABLY I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'D BE CONSIDERED CLARIFICATION COUNCILMAN AUBIN.

THAT'S ALL.

WOULD YOU DO THAT.

THAT'S CORRECT.

GENERAL OFFICE IS A DEFINED TERM IN THE GDC, SO I BELIEVE THAT'S RIGHT.

RIGHT.

AND I JUST WANT TO BE.

BUT BY DOING RIGHT, SO GENERAL OFFICE 2ND FLOOR BY RIGHT, ANY EXISTING USE OF GENERAL OFFICE, FOR EXAMPLE, MR. STAFFORD'S OFFICE CURRENTLY IS.

THOSE WERE ALL GRANDFATHERED IN.

IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING, AS WE DISCUSSED BEFORE.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, COUNCILMAN.

THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT.

AND BEFORE WE MOVE FORWARD, MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

I'D LIKE TO ASK FOR THOSE TO BE REPEATED AND ALSO SPLIT FOR INDIVIDUAL VOTES AS WELL.

SURE.

THANK YOU.

OK.

CAN YOU GIVE ME YOUR LIST TO SPLIT? BECAUSE, LIKE I SAID, I WAS DOING GOOD WRITING THEM DOWN.

WE TOTALLY NEED TO GET YOU A STENOGRAPHER.

AS I HAD THEM.

THEY WERE AND I HAD COME TO THIS LIST.

YEAH, GO AHEAD.

GO AHEAD.

GO AGAIN.

I CAME TO THIS LIST COUNCIL BY GOING DOWN THROUGH THE MATRIX.

AND SO.

LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I DO HAVE.

[LAUGHTER] BEFORE WE, I HAVE GYM, I HAVE CONVENIENCE STORE, I HAVE FITNESS CENTER, I HAVE PHARMACY, I HAVE.

AND THAT'S WHERE THINGS THAT'S WHERE I LOST TRACK OF TRYING TO KEEP THE LIST.

OK, LET ME GO AHEAD.

AND THEN THE FIRST ONE THAT I HAVE IS GYMNASIUM, WHICH IS LISTED IN THE MATRIX AS HEALTH AND FITNESS GYM PARENTHESES INDOOR.

THE NEXT ONE THAT I HAD WAS CONVENIENCE STORE ONE THOUSAND TO FIVE THOUSAND

[01:15:10]

SQUARE FEET.

THE NEXT ONE THAT I HAVE IS LISTED AS, OH, I'M SORRY.

OFFICE, GENERAL.

THE NEXT ONE THAT I HAVE IS PERSONAL SERVICES.

I'M SORRY AND JUST A LITTLE OUT OF ORDER BECAUSE ON THE MATRIX IN OUR PACKET.

THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTION ISN'T CHECKED AT ALL.

SO FINANCIAL, THE NEXT ONE IS FINANCIAL INSTITUTION.

I CONCUR WITH PARKING LOT GARAGE COMING OUT, SO THAT'S NOT A CHANGE.

AND THEN IT'S A TRANSIT STATION, STUDIO, FITNESS, WHICH I THINK IS I'M NOT SURE THAT ACTUALLY DIFFERS FROM A GYMNASIUM.

BUT DOES THAT ALSO TAKE THE PLACE OF THE ONE THAT WAS FITNESS CENTER? I BELIEVE YOU SAID.

YEAH, I THINK WHEN YOU SAID FITNESS CENTER, I WAS SAYING FITNESS STUDIO, BUT IT'S REFERRED TO AS STUDIO, FITNESS AND THEN TRANSIT STATION, I THINK, IS THE LAST ONE.

OK, GYM, CONVENIENCE STORE, PHARMACY, GENERAL OFFICE, PERSONAL SERVICE, FINANCIAL INSTITUTION.

TRANSIT STATION.

STUDIO FITNESS.

YES, I THINK THAT'S OK.

I'M JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE.

SO GO, I'M SORRY, GO AHEAD.

YES, THIS IS FOR SUP.

THE MOTION IS MIC HANG ON.

I'M JUST MANUALLY TURNING THEM ON.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

SO THE AMENDMENT IS TO IT'S NOT TO SAY NO TO ANY OF THESE, IT'S JUST TO SAY REQUIRE THEM TO COME BACK FOR AN SUP WITH THE EXCEPTION OF PERSONAL SERVICES, FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS, GENERAL OFFICE AND FITNESS STUDIO BEING PERMITTED ON A SECOND FLOOR OR ABOVE.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU HAVE A MULTI-STORY BUILDING, YOU WANT TO PUT GENERAL OFFICE ON A SECOND FLOOR.

NO PROBLEM.

YES SIR MR. [INAUDIBLE].

JUST FOR CLARIFICATION.

SO YOU'RE SAYING BY RIGHT IF IT'S ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

IF IT'S ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THOSE USES THAT I MENTIONED, THEN THAT WOULD BY, RIGHT? IT FOR LIKE ANOTHER SIX MONTHS.

IF I WAS ANY GOOD AT THIS JOB, I WOULD HAVE PREPARED SOME LIST.

BUT.

OFFICE GENERAL.

OFFICE, GENERAL, FITNESS STUDIO, GENERAL OFFICE AND PERSONAL SERVICES ALLOWED BY RIGHT ON A SECOND FLOOR OR ABOVE WERE PERMITTED BY RIGHT.

HOWEVER WE PUT IT, AND IF I'VE MISSED ANYTHING, I GLADLY WILL TAKE FRIENDLY, WHATEVER OR UNFRIENDLY OR CHANGES TO WHAT I'VE SUGGESTED HERE.

ALL RIGHT, THERE WE GO.

WE'LL COME BACK TO THAT.

OK.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I WILL SAY AGAIN, I'LL STRONGLY OPPOSE IMPOSING AN SUP ON OFFICE ON GENERAL OFFICE OR FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS.

THESE ARE SOME OF THE MAJOR PROPERTY OWNERS ON THE SQUARE.

AND THIS WAS PART OF THEIR BECOMING SUPPORTIVE OF THIS VERSUS COMING IN HARD AGAINST IT.

I DO NOT BELIEVE EITHER OF THOSE ARE IN ANY WAY DAMAGING TO THE SQUARE WITH OUR MIXED USES THERE.

AND I ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT SUPPORT IMPOSING AN SUP ON THOSE TWO USES.

SO AND WHAT WERE THOSE AGAIN? I'M SORRY, GO AHEAD.

GENERAL OFFICE AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS, THOSE ARE PART OF ALMOST EVERY DOWNTOWN, EVERY CORE OF EVERY DOWNTOWN.

THESE ARE NOT DAMAGING USES.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK.

I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT REQUEST FOR SPLITTING THESE ITEMS WAS MADE.

YES.

YEAH, WE'VE GOTTEN THIS FAR WITH IT.

THERE'S NO BACKING UP.

EXACTLY.

SO YES, WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, MADAM SECRETARY, ARE YOU PREPARED FOR ALL OF THIS? BECAUSE AS CONFUSING AS IT'S BEEN FOR ME TO WRITE IT DOWN, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE FOR YOU TO TYPE IT INTO THE SYSTEM.

I BELIEVE.

AND IF WE NEED TO TAKE A RECESS TO SORT THIS OUT, WE CAN DO THAT.

I'M GOING TO LET THE CITY ATTORNEY LOOK AT WHAT I'VE GOT.

[01:20:01]

[INAUDIBLE].

BRYAN'S GIVING IT THE ONCE OVER.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. YEAH.

MAYOR, I'M TRYING TO STAY WITH THIS BUS JUST FOR CLARITY.

COUNCILMAN AUBIN, IF I CAN, JUST AGAIN, I JUST WANT TO UNDERSTAND IT, OK, GENERAL OFFICE AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTION, PARTICULAR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION AS OPPOSED IN YOUR AMENDMENT.

THOSE WOULD BE ALLOWED ON SECOND.

SECOND FLOOR BY RIGHT.

BY RIGHT, BUT NOT ON THE GROUND FLOOR IS GROUND FLOOR SUP.

YEAH, YEAH, IT'S NOT.

APPARENTLY IT SAYS I'M IN QUEUE, BUT MY MICROPHONE IS WORKING, SO I'M JUST GOING TO TALK MANUALLY TURNING THEM ON.

THANK YOU, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM FOR THE QUESTION.

YES, THE SECOND FLOOR BY RIGHT.

SO SOMEBODY COMES IN AND THEY WANT TO PUT OFFICE IN ON THE SECOND FLOOR LIKE WE HAVE IN SOME OTHER PARTS OF DOWNTOWN.

NO PROBLEM THAT COMES IN BY RIGHT? IF YOU WANT TO COME IN ON THE FIRST FLOOR, I'M NOT SAYING NO.

AND WE WOULD NOT SAY NO, BUT IT HAS TO COME BACK TO THE COUNCIL AND IT HAS TO GO THROUGH THE SUP PROCESS.

SO THEY'VE GOT TO, YOU KNOW, TALK TO THEIR NEIGHBORS ON THE DOWNTOWN SQUARE.

THE USES THAT ARE ALREADY THERE AS LONG I THINK IT WAS AS LONG AS THEY DON'T GO DARK FOR, THE USE DOESN'T GO DARK FOR SIX MONTHS.

THEY DO NOT.

THEY CAN.

IT'S TRANSFERABLE.

SO MR. STAFFORD, FOR EXAMPLE, I MEAN, AND I'VE NOT SPOKEN TO HIM.

I DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND WHY, WHY ANYBODY WOULD OPPOSE THAT IN THE SENSE OF YOU NOW HAVE, YOU KNOW, IT'S IN MANY RESPECTS A GIFT BECAUSE YOU NOW HAVE THE ONLY PERMITTED, DON'T HAVE TO GET AN SUP, DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING RIGHT TO HAVE GENERAL OFFICE ON THE SQUARE.

YOU EFFECTIVELY HAVE A MONOPOLY ON THE SQUARE THAT YOU CAN SELL AND TRANSFER TO SOMEONE ELSE.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO GO TO COUNCIL.

BUT PUTTING THAT ASIDE, MAYBE SOMEONE HAS A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.

BUT THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

IT IS, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE STILL PERMITTED.

NOBODY'S SAYING WE DON'T WANT YOU NOBODY IS SAYING, BUT WITH RESPECT TO ADDING ANY MORE OFFICE SPACE, SO IF SOMEBODY DID COME IN AND IF SOME YOU KNOW THE TEXAS SLEDGEHAMMER COMES IN AND SAYS, I WANT TO PUT A GIANT LEGAL OFFICE THERE, I WANT TO TAKE ALL THESE BUILDINGS, THEN THEY HAVE TO COME TO COUNCIL FIRST.

THAT'S ALL IT SAYS.

OK.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

BRYAN, DO WE NEED TO TAKE A RECESS TO.

OK, ALL RIGHT, FOLKS, WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A 10 MINUTE RECESS TO GET.

WE'VE GOT QUITE A COMPLICATED VOTE ON OUR HANDS.

LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY BACK AT 8:35 PLEASE.

EIGHT, THIRTY FIVE.

ALL RIGHT, WE ARE BACK FROM RECESS.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS, YOU'RE IN THE QUEUE, IS THERE.

OR IS THAT REAL OR NOT? OK, GO AHEAD.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I JUST WANT TO ASK COUNCILMAN AUBIN AGAIN TO CLARIFY ON GENERAL OFFICE AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTION COUNCILMAN AUBIN.

THEY ARE.

THE MOTIONS WILL BE FOR THEM TO BE ALLOWED BY SUP AND ON THE FIRST FLOOR AND BY RIGHT ON SECOND FLOOR, IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN.

OK, OK.

GO AHEAD COUNCILMAN AUBIN.

GO AHEAD.

THAT'S CORRECT.

SO THAT BY ON THE SECOND, IF LET'S TAKE A COUPLE OF SCENARIOS JUST TO MAKE IT CLEAR FOR PEOPLE.

IF WE HAVE AN EXISTING BANK THAT'S ON THE SQUARE, IF THEY DECIDED, LET'S SAY THAT THEY WANTED TO BUILD UP, THEY WANTED TO ADD A THIRD FLOOR, THEY WANTED TO, LET'S SAY THE SECOND FLOOR ISN'T BEING USED OR WHATEVER, AND THEY WANT TO NOW USE IT FOR BANK

[01:25:04]

RELATED USES.

THEY COULD DO THAT WITHOUT HAVING TO COME BACK TO COUNCIL, LET'S SAY, ON THE FIRST FLOOR.

LET'S SAY THAT PART OF THE FOOTPRINT OF THEIR BUILDING NOW, YOU KNOW THEY HAVE THE BANK SIDE AND LET'S SAY THEY WANT TO EITHER EXPAND THE BUILDING OR THEY WANT TO USE ALL OF THE, LET'S SAY, PART OF THE FIRST FLOOR FOOTPRINT INCLUDES A NEWSSTAND.

IF THEY WANTED TO EXPAND THE BANK TO INCLUDE THAT SPACE, ALTHOUGH WE'D HAVE TO, IT'S NOT SAYING NO AT ALL.

THEY WOULD JUST HAVE TO COME BACK TO COUNCIL AND SAY, YOU KNOW, WE WOULD LIKE TO INCREASE THE SIZE OF THE FIRST FLOOR OR WE'D LIKE TO EXPAND OUR FIRST FLOOR, WHATEVER IT IS.

AND SIMILARLY, A NEW BANK THAT WANTED TO COME IN.

LET'S SAY A NEW BANK BUYS, YOU KNOW, CHASE BANK BUYS BAKER FURNITURE AND THEY DECIDE THEY WANT TO DEMOLISH THE BUILDING AND PUT IN A CHASE BANK LOCATION THERE.

UNDER THE AMENDMENT, THEY WOULD HAVE TO COME TO COUNCIL AND GET AN SUP TO DO THAT.

UNDER THE CURRENT PROPOSAL THAT'S THE MOTION.

THE MAIN MOTION WOULD ALLOW CHASE TO COME IN, BY RIGHT AND DEMOLISH THE BUILDING.

AND SO THOSE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES.

BASICALLY, IT'S JUST SAYING THAT THAT THESE USES THAT HAVE THE SUP'S ARE NOT BEING BARRED.

THEY JUST HAVE TO COME BACK TO COUNCIL SO THAT WE CAN EXECUTE OUR OVERSIGHT FUNCTION.

OK.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

AND AS I WAS SAYING, WE HAVE COME BACK FROM A RECESS, WE'VE HAD TIME TO PROGRAM INTO OUR SYSTEM, PROBABLY A RECORD NUMBER OF AMENDMENTS FOR A MOTION THAT I'VE EVER EXPERIENCED.

COUNCIL WE ARE GOING TO WORK THROUGH THOSE MOTIONS INDIVIDUALLY.

I BELIEVE THERE ARE NINE IN TOTAL.

AT THE END OF THAT, WE WILL STILL COME BACK TO THE MAIN MOTION AND COUNCIL LADY MORRIS WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACCEPT THOSE AMENDMENTS AND OR WITHDRAW HER MOTION COMPLETELY.

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, MADAM SECRETARY.

OH WELL.

ALL RIGHT.

WE'LL CROSS IT.

YEAH, LET'S.

ALL RIGHT.

A MOTION OR AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE TO ALLOW USE FOR GYMNASIUM BY SUP .

MADAM SECRETARY.

OK, THERE YOU GO.

AND JUST FOR THE RECORD, ALL OF THESE ARE MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN, SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

OK, ARE YOU READY TO START THE VOTE MAYOR? HANG ON ONE SECOND COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

I APOLOGIZE THANK YOU MAYOR.

BEFORE WE VOTE, I'D LIKE A CLARIFICATION FROM CITY STAFF, PLEASE.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GYM HEALTH, FITNESS AND STUDIO FITNESS.

OK, THANK YOU.

SIR, LET ME PULL UP THE DEFINITION, BUT I BELIEVE THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO IS THE SQUARE FOOTAGE.

LET ME JUST CLARIFY THAT FOR YOU IF YOU GIVE ME JUST A SECOND MAYOR.

THANK YOU.

YEAH, I WAS THINKING ONE IS UNDER FIVE THOUSAND ONE'S ABOVE 5000.

YES, SIR.

I HONESTLY DON'T REMEMBER WHICH IS WHICH, RIGHT? YES, SIR.

YES, SIR, THE STUDIO FITNESS OR PERFORMING ARTS IS FIVE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET OR LESS, AND THE HEALTH AND FITNESS GYM IS GREATER THAN FIVE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET.

THANK YOU, WILL.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT, MADAM SECRETARY, PLEASE PREPARE THE VOTE ON THIS ITEM ON THIS AMENDMENT.

COUNCIL.

AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, THAT ITEM, THAT AMENDMENT IS APPROVED.

MOVING ON TO THE SECOND AMENDMENT, AGAIN, THIS IS A CONVENIENCE STORE BY SUP.

ANY DISCUSSION.

MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU PREPARE THE VOTE, PLEASE.

[01:30:04]

AND COUNCIL.

AND DISPLAY THE VOTE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS BASS MORRIS AND SMITH IN OPPOSITION.

MADAM SECRETARY, BRING UP THE THIRD AMENDMENT, PLEASE.

AND THE THIRD AMENDMENT IS PHARMACY BY SUP.

MADAM SECRETARY.

COUNCIL.

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS. AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, PLEASE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS BASS MORRIS AND WILLIAMS IN OPPOSITION.

MADAM SECRETARY PREPARE THE FOURTH AMENDMENT AND THIS IS TO ALLOW GENERAL OFFICE BY SUP ON THE FIRST FLOOR AND BY RIGHT ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

MADAM SECRETARY AND COUNCIL.

AND DISPLAY THE VOTE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS, BASS MORRIS AND THE MAYOR IN OPPOSITION.

LET'S GO WITH NUMBER FIVE.

NUMBER FIVE IS PERSONAL SERVICES ALLOWED BY SUP ON THE FIRST FLOOR AND BY RIGHT ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

PREPARE THE VOTE, PLEASE.

COUNCIL.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN, THERE WE GO AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, THAT ITEM IS APPROVED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS BASS AND MORRIS IN OPPOSITION.

AND NUMBER SIX, PLEASE.

SIX IS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS SUP.

AND THAT SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS ALLOWED BY SUP ON THE FIRST FLOOR BY RIGHT ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

ANY DISCUSSION? PLEASE VOTE, OR I'M SORRY PREPARE THE VOTE AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, PLEASE.

THAT ITEM FAILS WITH MEMBERS WILLIAMS, AUBIN AND VERA IN SUPPORT.

ALL RIGHT, HANG ON.

NUMBER SEVEN IS AMENDMENT TO ITEMS. THIS IS TRANSIT STATION ALLOWED BY SUP.

COUNCIL.

AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, PLEASE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, I BELIEVE WE HAVE FITNESS ALLOWED BY SUP ON THE FIRST FLOOR AND ALLOWED BY RIGHT ON THE SECOND FLOOR AND ABOVE.

STUDIO FITNESS EXCUSE ME, STUDIO FITNESS IS.

AND COUNCIL.

AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, PLEASE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS BASS, MORRIS, HEDRICK AND SMITH IN OPPOSITION.

IS THAT ALL OF THEM? I THINK THAT'S IT.

I LOST TRACK IT SAYS EIGHT, SO I'M GOING TO ASSUME, OK, SO JUST FOR AN INTERESTING RECAP HERE, ALL OF THE AMENDMENTS WERE APPROVED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FINANCIAL INSTITUTION IN THAT LIST.

SO NOW WE ARE BACK TO THE MAIN MOTION.

GO AHEAD, MA'AM.

I JUST TURNED YOUR MIC ON.

GO AHEAD.

ALL RIGHT.

AND I'M LOOKING AT THE CITY ATTORNEY, SO I'VE MADE MY MOTION AND I WOULD AMEND IT TO INCLUDE WHAT WE JUST PASSED.

THE AMENDMENTS THAT WERE JUST ADDED THAT COUNCIL APPROVED, WHICH WOULD BE EIGHT OF THE NINE CORRECT.

BASICALLY, YES, I MEAN, BASICALLY, THE AMENDMENTS HAVE BEEN APPROVED.

OK, SO YOU DON'T NEED TO INCLUDE THOSE IN YOUR MOTION.

WE HAVE.

THEY ARE DONE.

WELL, THEN MY MOTION HAS BEEN MADE, SO WE JUST VOTE, RIGHT?

[01:35:01]

THAT'S RIGHT.

WE JUST.

YES.

SO WE'RE ALL BACK ON THE SAME PAGE AND I THINK IT'S PAGE THIRTY SIX AT THIS POINT.

WE'RE BACK TO THE MAIN MOTION, WHICH WAS FROM COUNCIL LADY MORRIS, SECONDED BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS AND ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION.

MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD PREPARE THE VOTE, PLEASE.

COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

THERE WE GO.

AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

AND I WILL LOOK TO THE CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE AND OUR PLANNING DEPARTMENT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'VE GOT ALL OF THOSE I'S AND T'S WHEN THIS COMES BACK OR COMES THROUGH THE PROCESS FOR MY SIGNATURE, PLEASE.

OK.

ALL RIGHT.

I FEEL LIKE WE SHOULD, LIKE TAKE A BREAK, BUT WE JUST DID, SO WE'RE GOING TO PLOW AHEAD AND WE'LL SEE WHERE THIS ONE GETS US.

THIS IS MOVING ON TO ITEMS 10 B, C AND D.

[Items 10B - 10D]

10 B IS CONSIDER A PLAN DEVELOPMENT AMENDMENT REQUEST BY VENTURE DISTILLING LAND LLC.

TO OPERATE A DISTILLERY FACILITY FROM THE EXISTING BUILDING AT PROPERTY IS AT 406 AND 412 SOUTH BARNES DRIVE IN DISTRICT SIX.

THIS ITEM ALSO INCLUDES A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION AND A DETAILED PLAN.

SAME APPLICANT.

SAME ADDRESS.

YES, SIR.

MAYOR COUNCIL THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO OPERATE A DISTILLERY FACILITY FROM AN EXISTING BUILDING LOCATION IS 406 AND 412 SOUTH BARNES DRIVE.

THE CURRENT ZONING IS IN A PD 03-47 FOR LIMITED COMMUNITY RETAIL USES.

HERE'S THE GENERAL LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT SITE IN WEST GARLAND, JUST NORTH OF FOREST LANE, AND HERE'S THE MORE SPECIFIC LOCATION OUTLINED HERE IN TEAL.

IT IS AN EXISTING BUILDING AND CURRENTLY VACANT TO THE NORTH IS A LIGHT INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSE FACILITY.

TO THE WEST ACROSS BARNES DRIVE IS AN APARTMENT COMPLEX.

MORE MULTIFAMILY IS TO THE NORTH.

TO THE SOUTHWEST IS A SELF-STORAGE FACILITY.

IMMEDIATELY TO THE SOUTH IS AN AUTO REPAIR FACILITY AND FURTHER SOUTH, ARE SOME RETAIL USES.

IMMEDIATELY TO THE EAST IS A SELF-STORAGE FACILITY AND FURTHER TO THE EAST IS A MOTEL.

SO QUITE AN ARRAY OF LAND USES HERE.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IDENTIFIES THIS SITE AS TRANSIT ORIENTED CENTERS.

THE SUBJECT SITE IS APPROXIMATELY ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YARDS FROM THE FOREST JUPITER PARK AND RIDE DART STATION.

SO THIS PROPOSAL HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRINGING SOME EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY TO AN AREA THAT OFFERS DIFFERENT MODES OF TRANSPORTATION.

HERE'S A VIEW OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FROM SOUTH BARNES DRIVE THE APPLICANT THIS USE WOULD OCCUPY.

THERE'S TWO TENANT SPACES TRADITIONALLY IN THIS BUILDING, BUT THEY WOULD OCCUPY THE ENTIRE BUILDING FOR THE DISTILLERY USE.

AND HERE ARE SOME OTHER PHOTOS OF THE SITE.

THIS IS THE MULTIFAMILY TO THE WEST ACROSS BARNES DRIVE.

THE BUILDING TO THE NORTH.

AND SOME OF THE USES TO THE SOUTH LOOKING SOUTH FROM BARNES DRIVE.

THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS DEVELOPED WITH A FIFTEEN THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT BUILDING CURRENTLY DIVIDED INTO TWO SPACES.

JUST TO OCCUPY THE ENTIRE BUILDING FOR THE DISTILLERY USE.

THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO OPERATE A DISTILLERY, AND WHILE NO ACTUAL DISTILLING OR FERMENTATION WILL BE PERFORMED, THE FACILITY WOULD PRODUCE LIQUOR BY MIXING VARIOUS RAW AND PROCESSED MATERIALS, SO IT DOES MEET THE DEFINITION OF A DISTILLERY BREWERY TYPE USE PER THE GDC.

THE APPLICANT IS NOT PROPOSING ANY DINING AND TASTING FOOD SERVICE AREAS OR ON PREMISES CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AS PART OF THIS OPERATION.

ALTHOUGH DINING AND TASTING AREAS ARE ALLOWED IN THIS LAND USE, PER THE GDC.

SO IF THE APPLICANT WERE TO WANT TO DO THAT DOWN THE ROAD.

HERE'S THE SITE PLAN.

NOT MUCH IS CHANGING IN TERMS OF PHYSICAL IMPROVEMENTS ON THE SITE.

YOU CAN SEE THE BUILDING HERE TWO DRIVEWAYS FROM SOUTH BARNES DRIVE.

HOWEVER, THE APPLICANT WOULD BE ADDING TWO ETHANOL STORAGE TANKS OUTDOORS TOWARDS KIND OF THE SIDE REAR OF THE BUILDING SOUTHEAST SIDE OF THE BUILDING.

THEY WOULD BE SCREENING IT WITH AN EVERGREEN TREE OUT IN FRONT OF IT.

AND IN ADDITION TO THAT, THERE'S AN EXISTING CHAIN LINK FENCE LOCATED HERE ALONG THE BUILDING LINE.

THE APPLICANT WOULD BE ADDING SOME OPAQUE SLATS, SOME SCREENING SLATS ON THAT FENCE TO FURTHER HELP SCREEN THE STORAGE TANKS.

SO AS I JUST MENTIONED, TWO OUTDOOR ETHANOL STORAGE TANKS WILL BE PROVIDED AND

[01:40:05]

SCREENED, BUT OTHERWISE THE APPLICANT IS NOT PROPOSING ANY BUILDING EXPANSIONS OR SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS OF THE SITE.

THEREFORE, ADDITIONAL SCREENING AND LANDSCAPING IS NOT TRIGGERED BY THIS REQUEST.

THE APPLICANT REQUESTS AN AMENDMENT TO THE PD TO ALLOW THIS USE BY SUP, WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE COMMUNITY RETAIL ZONING DISTRICT, WHICH ALLOWS THIS USE BY SUP.

IT IS JUST SIMPLY ADDING IT TO THE PD THAT IT IS LOCATED IN.

THE APPLICANT REQUESTS THE SUP TIME PERIOD FOR 15 YEARS.

STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST.

HOWEVER, A SHORTER SUP TIME PERIOD SUCH AS FIVE OR 10 YEARS MAYBE CONSIDERED IN ORDER TO REEVALUATE THE USE AND THE SURROUNDING AREA, WHICH IS WITHIN THE FOREST JUPITER WALNUT CATALYST AREA.

IN ADDITION, A FUTURE TASTING ROOM OR DINING AREA OPEN TO PATRONS MAY CONTRIBUTE FURTHER TO THE SURROUNDING AREA.

AGAIN, THE APPLICANT IS NOT PROPOSING THAT AT THIS TIME, BUT THE GDC DOES ALLOW IT, AND THAT MAY BE ALLOWED IN THIS SITUATION UNLESS THE COUNCIL CONDITIONS OTHERWISE.

AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AS WELL WITH THE ALLOWANCE OF A FUTURE TASTING ROOM AND THE SUP TIME PERIOD FOR A PERIOD OF 15 YEARS PER THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST.

AND WE MAILED OUT FORTY FIVE NOTIFICATION LETTERS FOR THIS CASE.

WE RECEIVED ONE IN FAVOR, TWO TECHNICALLY, BUT THIS WAS FROM THE SAME INDIVIDUAL TWICE AND ONE IN OPPOSITION, AND BOTH OF THOSE WERE WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

WITH THAT MAYOR, I'LL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

WELL, DID THE FIRE DEPARTMENT CHECK THE TANKS THAT ARE GOING TO GO THERE.

YES, SIR.

YES, SIR.

THIS WAS REVIEWED BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, INCLUDING THE TANKS.

AND THEY APPROVED IT.

IT WAS OK.

YES, SIR.

IT DID NOT TRIGGER THE H CLASSIFICATION.

SO THIS IS NOT A HIGH RISK USE.

SO YES, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS REVIEWED THIS AND I BELIEVE THEY'RE REQUIRING A FIRE HYDRANT, AMONG OTHER ITEMS. SO.

DO THEY HAVE ENOUGH PARKING IF THEY EVER DECIDE TO DO A TASTE? TASTING ROOM.

SO THE USE AS PROPOSED IN THIS BUILDING.

THEY DO HAVE A SURPLUS OF ABOUT THREE PARKING SPACES, SO THEY'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT OF ROOM.

IF IT WERE TO EXCEED THOSE THREE SPACES, IF THEY WERE TO COME BACK FOR A TASTING ROOM, THE GDC DOES ALLOW ADMINISTRATIVE CONSIDERATION THROUGH STAFF TO LOOK AT IT THROUGH A PARKING STUDY PROVIDED BY THE APPLICANT.

SO, FOR EXAMPLE, IF THEY PROPOSED A TASTING ROOM, BUT IT'S PRIMARILY INTENDED FOR KIND OF AFTER HOURS, HAPPY HOURS, SOMETHING LIKE THAT WHERE MOST OF THE EMPLOYEES ARE GONE.

THAT MAY BE SOMETHING WE COULD LOOK AT AND CONSIDER.

SO PARKING MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE AN ISSUE.

AND DID THEY EVER CONSIDER 10 YEARS FOR THE SUP SINCE IT'S IN THE JUPITER FOREST CATALYST AREA? RIGHT? I'M NOT SURE.

IT'S PROBABLY A BETTER QUESTION FOR THE APPLICANT, IF YOU WOULD.

OK.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR MR. GUERIN WOULD YOU GO BACK TO THE SLIDE WHERE YOU HAD THE FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS? YES, SIR.

ONE QUICK QUESTION FOR YOU.

YES.

AT THE TOP, RIGHT.

IT'S EITHER I HAVE THE NAME MIXED UP IT IS EITHER GLEN FOREST, OR FOREST GLEN APARTMENT COMPLEX.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS PROPERTY AND THAT COMPLEX? GOSH, I MEAN, JUST A GUESSTIMATE.

YEAH, I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY BARNES DRIVE, IF THAT'S AT LEAST A PROBABLY 60 FOOT RIGHT OF WAY.

PLUS YOU'VE GOT A PROBABLY AT LEAST A 25 30 FOOT SETBACK, THE BUILDING AND THEN THE BUILDINGS TO THE APARTMENT COMPLEXES.

SO PROBABLY FROM BUILDING TO BUILDING MORE THAN 100 FEET OR SO, 120 FEET, PERHAPS.

OK, OK, OK.

AND MY NEXT QUESTION IS SINCE ALL THE WEST SIDE OF SOUTH BARNES IS PRETTY MUCH MULTIFAMILY, I MEAN, THAT WHOLE STREET.

AND THEN YOUR STAFF REPORT, YOU SAID THAT IF WE APPROVED, IF WE APPROVE IT AS RECOMMENDED TONIGHT, THEY HAVE THE OPTION OF CHOOSING AT SOME FUTURE DATE TO DECIDE TO OPEN THE TASTING FEATURE WITHOUT COMING BACK WITHOUT ANY CONDITIONS UNLESS THE COUNCIL IMPOSED SOME CONDITIONS TONIGHT.

IS THAT RIGHT? THAT'S CORRECT.

YES, SIR.

SO, THEY COULD DO THAT.

AS A PART OF IF WE MOVE PER RECOMMENDATION, THEY COULD DO THAT.

THEY COULD DO THAT.

YES, SIR.

[01:45:01]

THE PLANNING COMMISSION TENDED TO FAVOR THE TASTING ROOM VERSUS A FULL BLOWN RESTAURANT.

BUT YES, SIR, IF APPROVED AS PRESENTED THEY CAN, THEY COULD ADD THAT A FUTURE TIME AND WORK WITH STAFF.

AGAIN, THAT'S NOT THE APPLICANT'S PROPOSAL AT THIS TIME, BUT THEY COULD COME BACK AND VISIT WITH STAFF ABOUT THAT.

YES, SIR.

OK.

ARE THERE ANY CAPACITY? WHAT WOULD BE THE CAPACITY LIMITATIONS OF THE CAPACITY NOW AS POSSIBLE IF THEY CHOSE TO DO THAT? AND I'LL LISTEN TO THE APPLICANT.

BUT SHOULD THEY DECIDE TO GO THAT ROUTE? SURE.

YEAH, MAYBE A QUESTION FOR THE APPLICANT.

BUT IT JUST REALLY DEPENDS ON THE SQUARE FOOTAGE, WHAT THE PROPOSAL IS, WHETHER IT'S A VERY, VERY SMALL TASTING ROOM IN A CORNER OR WHETHER IT'S SOMETHING LARGER SCALE, IT WOULD BE REALLY SOMETHING THAT WOULD JUST NEED TO BE PRESENTED TO US AND WE WOULD REVIEW IT ACCORDINGLY.

ALL RIGHT THANK YOU SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? THANK YOU, MR. GUERIN.

SURE.

MADAM SECRETARY, WE HAVE ONE SPEAKER ON THIS ITEM, PETER [INAUDIBLE].

OK, SIR, IF YOU COULD COME FORWARD.

AND IF YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, AND YOU WILL HAVE 10 MINUTES TO EITHER MAKE A PRESENTATION OR ANSWER QUESTIONS OR JUST STAND THERE AND SMILE.

IT'S PROBABLY THE BETTER CHOICE.

HI MY NAME IS PETER [INAUDIBLE].

I LIVE AT 2802 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DRIVE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, AND I AM THE OWNER AND APPLICANT FOR THE PROPOSED PROPERTY.

THIS WOULD DEFINITELY NOT BE MY FORTE, SO I'LL PROBABLY JUST JUMP IN AND ANSWER IN A COUPLE OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I HEARD AND THEN.

GO AHEAD.

IF YOU WANT TO SHOOT SOME MORE AT ME.

AS FAR AS DISTANCE FROM THE OPPOSITE BUILDING, I KNOW IN LOOKING AT THE COST OF ADDING OUR FIRE HYDRANT AND EXTENDING A FIRE LINE TO ADD FIRE SPRINKLERS, I KNOW OUR FIRE EXTENSION IS ONE HUNDRED FEET FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET.

SO I THINK YOU WERE PROBABLY ALMOST DEAD ON WITH ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY HUNDRED AND THIRTY FEET TO THE BUILDING.

HE'S DONE THIS A COUPLE OF TIMES.

[LAUGHTER] AS FAR AS THE ETHANOL TANKS.

YES, WE DID GO THROUGH THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.

WE ALSO HAVE A FACILITY VERY SIMILAR TO THIS THAT WE'RE CLOSING IN COLORADO SPRINGS TO MOVE THIS BUSINESS HERE.

SO WE'RE PRETTY FAMILIAR WITH THESE TANKS AND ETHANOL STORAGE AND REALLY JUST AS FIRE SUPPRESSION.

AND THEN THERE'S A CONTAINMENT AREA.

BUT THERE, YEAH, IT DOESN'T BRING IN A HAZARDOUS OCCUPANCY OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

I WAS TRYING TO THINK OF OTHER QUESTIONS.

ADDRESS THE TASTING ROOM.

YEAH, TASTING ROOM.

WE DIDN'T PLAN TO HAVE ONE AT THIS TIME, ALTHOUGH IT IS A BIG COMPONENT TO THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS.

ALMOST TRADITIONALLY, WE HAVE FRIENDS THAT HAVE THE OTHER DISTILLERY HERE IN THE CITY OF GARLAND DALLAS DISTILLERS.

AND ALTHOUGH I KNOW THEY'RE KIND OF WINDING DOWN, IT WAS A BIG PART OF MAKING THEIR BUSINESS HAPPEN.

IT'S NOT SO MUCH WHAT WE DO, AND ALTHOUGH WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IT AT THIS SPACE, IT SURE BE GREAT TO HAVE KIND OF THE OUTDOOR PATIO AREA.

IT WOULD BE NICE THERE IN A THOUSAND OR SO SQUARE FOOT INSIDE RIGHT NOW, JUST WITH THE GIVEN SPACES THAT ARE AROUND IT, WITH THE AUTOMOTIVE ON THE ONE SIDE AND THE ASIAN DISTRIBUTION PLACE ON THE OTHER.

AND WITH THE MULTIFAMILY AND THEIR SIDE JUST I DON'T KNOW THAT IT REALLY BLENDS WELL TO WHAT'S OUT THERE.

BUT HAVING THAT OPTION, OF COURSE, YES, WE WOULD THEN MOST LIKELY NEED TO GO THROUGH THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT AND SEE HOW THAT AFFECTED OCCUPANCY AND BATHROOMS AND FIRE SUPPRESSION.

AND THERE'S A LOT TO GO TO IT THEN TO ADD, YOU KNOW, THE PUBLIC ASPECT TO A FRONT OF A BUILDING.

SO THAT WOULD REQUIRE A LITTLE BIT THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE PLANNED AT THIS TIME.

PARKING, WE DO HAVE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF SPACE AT THIS BUILDING ON BOTH SIDES.

THERE'S LIKE FORTY FEET THAT GO ALL THE WAY TO THE BACK.

WE'RE PLANNING ON ONLY MAKING USE OF ONE SIDE.

SO I MEAN, EVEN AS PART OF THIS, WE COULD STRIPE AND PUT PARKING ALL DOWN ONE SIDE OF THE BUILDING AND HAVE EXCESS PARKING FOR DAYS.

I DON'T THINK THAT WOULD BE AS MUCH OF A CONCERN, BUT WE DO WANT TO BLEND WELL INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHAT'S THERE.

ONE, IT WOULDN'T WORK WELL FOR US OTHERWISE IF IT DIDN'T FIT IN WELL THERE.

SO.

SORRY IF I'M RAMBLING.

ALL RIGHT.

I GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU HERE.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

PETER.

I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET A HOLD OF YOU MANY TIMES TO TALK TO YOU, BUT WE COULDN'T GET TOGETHER.

BUT ANYWAY, I APPRECIATE YOU COMING OVER HERE.

COME IN FROM COLORADO TO GARLAND, ESPECIALLY WEST GARLAND THAT'S MY DISTRICT.

HAPPY TO BE HERE.

SO I APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S ALL, MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? I SEE NO ONE IN THE QUEUE.

AND SIR, I WOULD SAY CONSIDERING THE LAST CASE WE WENT THROUGH YOU WOULDN'T HAPPEN TO HAVE ANY SAMPLES WITH YOU, WOULD YOU?

[01:50:01]

[LAUGHTER] I THOUGHT ABOUT IT.

I DIDN'T THINK IT SHOULD BE A THING, QUITE HONESTLY.

WELL, MAYBE WE CAN TALK LATER, BUT.

I KNOW NEXT TIME THERE IS A TOWN SQUARE DISCUSSION I'LL BRING THEM.

YES, THANK YOU.

ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT, COUNCIL.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE CLEARED THE QUEUE ON THIS ITEM.

MADAM SECRETARY DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER SPEAKERS? WE DO NOT.

VERY GOOD.

COUNCILMAN VERA.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

MAYOR, I WOULD LIKE TO PUT B, C AND D TOGETHER.

VERY GOOD.

AND I MAKE A MOTION THAT WE APPROVE IT, ACCORDING TO STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS.

VERY GOOD.

I HAVE AND THIS WOULD BE INCLUDING THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATION ON THE SUP LINK.

RIGHT? I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA, A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION.

MADAM SECRETARY, COUNCIL AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, PLEASE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU.

THANK YOU, PETER.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT WILL MOVE US ON TO ITEMS 10 E, F AND G.

THIS CASE HAS THREE SEPARATE PARTS AS WELL.

[Items 10E - 10G]

10 E IS CONSIDER A PLAN DEVELOPMENT REQUEST BY VINCENT GERARD & ASSOCIATES INC.

TO RELOCATE AN EXISTING TELECOMMUNICATIONS TOWER FROM RICHARDSON TO GARLAND.

THIS SITE IS LOCATED AT 213 HOLFORD ROAD IN DISTRICT ONE.

IT ALSO CONTAINS A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION AND A DETAILED PLAN.

SAME APPLICANT, SAME ADDRESS.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

THANK YOU.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO RELOCATE AN EXISTING TELECOMMUNICATION TOWER FROM RICHARDSON TO GARLAND.

THE LOCATION IS 213 HOLFORD ROAD.

THE OVERALL SUBJECT SITE IS ABOUT FOUR POINT THREE ACRES, BUT THE LEASE AREA SPECIFICALLY FOR THE TOWER IS ABOUT POINT ZERO FIVE SEVEN ACRES.

THE ZONING OF THE LAND IS AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT.

HERE'S THE GENERAL LOCATION AT THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IN NORTH GARLAND.

AND HERE IS THE MORE SPECIFIC LOCATION THE OVERALL PROPERTY IS LOCATED WITHIN THE TEAL COLOR HERE, THERE'S A RELIGIOUS USE ON THE PROPERTY.

BUILDING IS LOCATED HERE, PARKING AREA IN THE FRONT.

BUT THE RED AREA INDICATED HERE IS THE LEASE AREA.

THE GENERAL AREA FOR THE CELL TOWER AND TO SOME OF THE SURROUNDING USES TO THE EAST ACROSS HOLFORD ROAD IS A SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE WEST AND PARTLY TO THE NORTH IS A SENIOR LIVING FACILITY.

AND TO THE SOUTH ACROSS CAMPBELL IS MORE SINGLE FAMILY DEVELOPMENT.

AND YOU CAN SEE THE CITY OF RICHARDSON JUST TO THE NORTH.

AND ACTUALLY, IF YOU LOOK HERE MAYOR AND COUNCIL, IF CAN YOU SEE MY CURSOR MAYOR.

NO.

IF YOU CAN, IT'S JUST TO THE NORTH.

YOU CAN KIND OF MAKE UP CRESCENT DRIVE.

JUST TO THE NORTH IS ACTUALLY THE EXISTING.

I'VE GOT ANOTHER AERIAL SHOWING IT, BUT YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE EXISTING TOWER IN RICHARDSON WITHIN THIS LOCATION MAP.

SO IT'S VERY CLOSE.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR THIS AREA DESIGNATES BUSINESS CENTERS FOR THIS AREA, WHICH GENERALLY CORRESPONDS WITH OFFICE AND EMPLOYMENT RELATED USES.

AND THE ANTENNA WILL PROVIDE CONTINUED COVERAGE TO THE COMMUNITY.

AND HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA.

THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS LOCATED ON THE NORTH OR, EXCUSE ME, THE TOP RIGHT TOP LEFT.

EXCUSE ME HERE LOOKING FROM HOLFORD ROAD, AND THERE ARE SOME OTHER PHOTOS OF THE SURROUNDING AREA NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE EAST, NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE SOUTH ACROSS CAMPBELL ROAD.

AND THEN ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT HERE IS THE RELIGIOUS USE BUILDING TO THE SOUTH.

HERE'S SOME ADDITIONAL AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS THIS LABELS IT A LITTLE BETTER ON THE THE GREEN LABEL THERE ON THE TOP LEFT, THE GREEN LABEL THERE IS THE CURRENT LOCATION OR I'M SORRY, THE PROPOSED LOCATION OF THE CELL TOWER.

THE CURRENT TOWER IS LOCATED JUST TO THE NORTH ACROSS CRESCENT DRIVE WITHIN THE CITY OF RICHARDSON.

SO TO BE CLEAR, IT WON'T BE A LITERAL RELOCATION OF THIS STRUCTURE FROM ONE TO THE OTHER.

THE NEW TOWER WILL BE BUILT AND THE CURRENT TOWER WILL BE DECOMMISSIONED AND REMOVED ONCE THE NEW ONE IS FULLY OPERABLE.

THE NEAREST TOWER OTHER THAN THE EXISTING ONE, OF COURSE, IS APPROXIMATELY THREE THOUSAND FEET AWAY NEAR CAMPBELL IN NORTH GARLAND AVENUE.

THAT IS ONE OF THE GDC DEVIATION REQUESTS THAT DOES REQUIRE A DISTANCE, A MINIMUM DISTANCE OF FIVE THOUSAND FEET TOWER TO TOWER.

SO THAT IS ONE OF THE DEVIATIONS.

[01:55:02]

ONE OF THE OTHER.

HERE'S A SITE PLAN HERE.

LOCATION OF THE TOWER ABOUT RIGHT HERE.

ONE OF THE OTHER GDC DEVIATIONS IS THE DISTANCE TO RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES.

THE GDC REQUIRES A DISTANCE FROM THE TOWER TO THE RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY OF THREE TIMES THE HEIGHT OF THE TOWER.

THEY DON'T QUITE HIT THAT.

THEY'RE ABOUT TWO AND A HALF TIMES THE HEIGHT OF THE TOWER.

THE DISTANCE IS ABOUT THREE HUNDRED AND TEN FEET FROM THE CLOSEST RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY LINE ACROSS HOLFORD ROAD, AND THE HEIGHT OF THE TOWER IS ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FEET.

ALTHOUGH WHEN INCLUDING THE THREE FOOT LIGHTNING ROD, THE TOTAL HEIGHT, INCLUDING THE LIGHTNING ROD, IS A HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE FEET.

IT'S LOCATED APPROXIMATELY JUST UNDER THIRTY FIVE FEET FROM THE PROPERTY TO THE NORTH, WHICH HAS AN UNDERLYING PD DESIGNATION FOR SENIOR LIVING USE.

BUT THERE ARE NO IMPROVEMENTS OR STRUCTURES ON THE PROPERTY TO THE NORTH.

THE APPLICANT WILL BE PROVIDING A SCREENING AROUND THE TOWER, PER THE GDC.

IT WILL BE A BRICK STYLE CONCRETE FENCE.

AND THEY'LL ALSO BE PROVIDING A RESIDENTIAL STYLE GATE FROM HOLFORD ROAD.

YOU SEE THE ELEVATION THERE, KIND OF GENERAL IDEA OF WHAT THAT WILL LOOK LIKE.

THAT'S, OF COURSE, ACCESS THE DRIVEWAY THAT WILL GO TO THE TOWER.

HERE'S AN ELEVATION OF THE TOWER.

AGAIN, THE TOTAL HEIGHT, INCLUDING THE LIGHTNING ROD, WOULD BE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY THREE FEET.

THERE WOULD BE THREE CARRIERS AS I UNDERSTAND.

AND I MENTIONED THE GDC DEVIATIONS, THERE ARE TWO I MENTIONED THEM EARLIER, BUT AGAIN, IT'S THE MINIMUM DISTANCE TO ANOTHER TOWER, WHICH IS FIVE THOUSAND FEET.

THIS PROPOSAL WOULD BE JUST OVER 3000 FEET FROM AN EXISTING TOWER AND ALSO THE DISTANCE FROM RESIDENTIAL, WHICH IN THIS CASE WOULD BE ABOUT THREE HUNDRED AND TEN FEET TO THE NEAREST RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY THAT ACTUALLY HAS STRUCTURES OR A STRUCTURE ON IT.

AND THIRTY FIVE FEET, OF COURSE, FROM THE NORTHERN RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT.

BUT THE ACTUAL SENIOR LIVING FACILITY IS IS TO THE LEFT WITHIN THAT SAME PROPERTY OR TO THE WEST.

EXCUSE ME.

AND THE APPLICANT CONTENDS THAT THE PROPOSED LOCATION IS A CRITICAL COMMUNICATION SITE FOR THIS AREA OF GARLAND AND RICHARDSON.

AND SO IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THAT SERVICE COVERAGE THAT AGAIN, THEY WOULD BE WAITING UNTIL THE NEW TOWER IS FULLY BUILT AND READY TO BE COMMISSIONED BEFORE THEY REMOVE AND DECOMMISSION THE EXISTING TOWER.

THE APPLICANT REQUEST THE SUP TIME PERIOD FOR A PERIOD OF 30 YEARS, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE.

STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST.

WHILE THE APPLICATION DOES INCLUDE SETBACK DEVIATIONS FROM THE GARLAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, THE PROPOSED LOCATION IS ONE THAT HAS SOME NATURAL VEGETATIVE SCREENING ON SEVERAL SIDES SHOULD ALSO MENTION THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING FOUR TREES NEAR THE GATE ALONG HOLFORD ROAD, BUT SOME NATURAL VEGETATIVE SCREENING AS WELL.

IT IS SET BACK FROM THE RESIDENTIAL HOMES AND THE RIGHT OF WAY MORE THAN THE HEIGHT OF THE TOWER AND WOULD CONTINUE TO PROVIDE UNINTERRUPTED CELLULAR COVERAGE TO THE AREA.

AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL WITH A SEVEN TO ZERO VOTE AS PRESENTED.

AND MAYOR WE MAILED OUT FORTY SEVEN NOTIFICATION LETTERS ON THIS CASE.

WE RECEIVED TWO IN FAVOR WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA TO IN OPPOSITION WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

ONE NEUTRAL RESPONSE WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

AND NINE IN OPPOSITION OUTSIDE THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

A FEW OF THOSE WERE FROM THE SAME ADDRESS BUT FROM DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS, RIGHT? OK, SURE.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF ON THIS ITEM.

I SEE NONE.

SECRETARY.

THE APPLICANT, VINCENT HEBINGER IS REGISTERED TO SPEAK.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

YOU CAN COME DOWN AND GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, AND YOU'LL HAVE 10 MINUTES TO MAKE PRESENTATION, ANSWER QUESTIONS OR JUST SMILE POLITELY.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

COUNCIL.

MY NAME IS VINCE HEBINGER WITH VINCENT GERARD AND ASSOCIATES.

GOOD TO BE HERE TONIGHT.

I'M GOING TO GO REAL QUICKLY THROUGH THIS.

SOME OF THIS WILL ALREADY TOOK CARE OF.

BUT WHAT WE HAVE, I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY UNDERSTOOD.

HE CLARIFIED THIS.

WE'RE NOT ADDING A SECOND TOWER.

WE'RE GOING TO RELOCATE THIS SITE REALLY CLOSE.

ONLY A COUPLE OF HUNDRED FEET AWAY FROM RICHARDSON, THE OWNER OF THIS CRYSTAL CREEK DEVELOPER NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IS DONE WITH THIS THING.

IT'S PROBABLY SITTING ON A MILLION DOLLAR HOME LOT OR WHATEVER.

SO THEY HAVE WORKED THIS THING.

I THINK I WAS INVOLVED IN 2017.

TRYING TO FIND A BETTER CANDIDATE OR ANOTHER LOCATION WAS REALLY DIFFICULT, RAN INTO SOME

[02:00:01]

ZONING ISSUES WHEN IT RAN INTO SOME PROPERTY OWNERS THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN INTERESTED, BUT THEN WE HAD TO MOVE FORWARD.

LUCKILY, WE FOUND THIS SITE IN YOUR BACKUP THERE'S A CANDIDATE SEARCH STUDY AND IT TALKS ABOUT ALL SEVEN CANDIDATES THAT WE WENT THROUGH TO LOOK FOR A POSSIBLE LOCATION.

YOU CAN SEE ON THIS AERIAL HOW CLOSE THEY ARE.

BASICALLY, THE YELLOW PIN IS WHERE THE EXISTING SITE IS AND THE GREEN IS WHERE WE'RE PROPOSING.

THERE'S TWO VERY LARGE DRAINAGE AREA, TREE FILLED DRAINAGE AREAS IN THERE THAT WILL SAID THAT WILL BASICALLY GIVE US SOME SCREENING.

SO THAT'LL HELP.

I DON'T WANT TO GO OVER THIS IN DETAIL.

THOSE ARE THE SEVEN SITES WE STOPPED AT 2.

WE CAME BACK TO TWO AND THANKFULLY THE RETIREMENT CENTER SOLD TO THE TEMPLE.

THE TEMPLE WAS VERY INTERESTED IN TRYING TO DO THIS, AND WE PUSHED IT BACK AS FAR AS WE CAN FROM THE RESIDENTIAL TO THE EAST, KNOWING THAT WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING ON THE NORTH FROM THE RICHARDSON NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE TALK ABOUT SEARCH RINGS IN [INAUDIBLE].

THEY'RE A PRETTY EXACT I MEAN, IF YOU GO OUTSIDE THIS ONE QUARTER MILE RING, YOU PICK UP ANOTHER COVERAGE SITE AREA.

SO WE GENERALLY HAVE VOICE AND DATA AND EVERY VEHICLE WE HAVE.

BUT IF WE GO OUT THIS THIS REAL RF RING OUTSIDE THAT THEN WE DON'T REALLY GET ALL THOSE THOUSANDS OF ROOFTOPS COVERAGE IN BUILDING AND STUFF OF THAT NATURE.

AGAIN, THERE IS THE CANDIDATES THAT WE LOOKED AT AND THEN WILL TALKED ABOUT THE ONE THAT'S THREE THOUSAND SIXTY FEET AWAY JUST HAPPENED TO BE ANOTHER CROWN SITE.

IT WOULDN'T BE A REPLACEMENT SITE.

IT IS AGAIN OUTSIDE THAT RING.

IT'S A SMALLER TOWER.

IT WOULD BE A DROP AN SWAP, AND IT'S SURROUNDED BY RESIDENTIAL ALSO.

HERE'S SOME OF THE SITE SUMMARY JUST BULLET POINTS THERE.

BASICALLY, AS WE STARTED QUITE A FEW YEARS AGO, OUR SITE BECAME A VIABLE CANDIDATE WHEN THE FIRESTORM RETIREMENT CENTER SOLD TO THE TEMPLE AND THE NEW SITE IS ACTUALLY FURTHER FROM RESIDENTIAL IN GARLAND AND THEN HELPFUL BECAUSE PUSHING IT AWAY FROM THAT CRYSTAL CREEK SUBDIVISION IS PROBABLY A GOOD IDEA TOO.

THIS SITE HAS BEEN ACTIVE FOR AT LEAST A COUPLE OF, I THINK, 15 YEARS.

KNOWING THAT WE WANTED TO GO AHEAD AND REACH OUT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP.

WE SENT OUT NOTICES FOR A ZOOM CALL MEETING, SO WE GOT ABOUT 12 PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE AND THEY WERE.

WE'RE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR REACTION TO, HEY, IS THIS GOING TO BE EITHER A NEW TOWER? NO, IT'S NOT.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO TRY TO HELP, YOU KNOW, KNOCK THIS THING DOWN A LITTLE BIT? AND THEY SUGGESTED THEIR PICTURE THERE ON THE TOP IS THEIR RESIDENTIAL GATE OR THEIR THEME ENTRY SUBDIVISION WALL.

SO THAT'S WHERE WE CAME UP WITH A RESIDENTIAL GATE AT THAT LOCATION, WHERE THE BLUE ARROWS POINTING.

SO WE'LL BRING IT IN LIKE A GAP A LITTLE BIT TO ABOUT 40 FEET.

AND THEY ALSO WANTED TO, THEY WERE CONCERNED ABOUT THE VIEW DOWN THE DRIVEWAY.

SO WE WORKED WITH GARLAND FIRE DEPARTMENT TO REDUCE THE WIDTH OF THE DRIVEWAY.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO PUT THOSE CONES DOWN ON THE EDGES OF THE DRIVEWAY, BUT IT'S GOING TO BE 16 FEET OF CONCRETE.

THOSE CONES FILLED UP WITH PEA GRAVEL AND THEN YOU PUT SOME KIND OF TURF SOLUTION ON IT.

SO IT'S STABILIZED, BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO LOOK LIKE CONCRETE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO DO THAT.

WE FOUND A PRODUCT THAT WORKS FAIRLY WELL, AND WE'RE GOING TO ADD A COUPLE OF EVERGREEN TREES ON EACH SIDE OF THE GATE.

BUT THE GATES ARE JUST GOING TO BE THAT AN ENTRANCE GATE.

THEN WE'LL HAVE THE FENCE AROUND THE SITE.

THAT'S A MASONRY FENCE [INAUDIBLE], AND THEN WE'RE LOOKING FOR AT LEAST THE SAME HEIGHT AS WE HAVE ON THE OTHER SITE, BECAUSE THAT HAS THE THREE BIG CARRIERS ON IT.

SO WE DON'T WANT TO INTERRUPT ANYBODY'S SERVICE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THESE PHONES ARE.

YOU CAN SEE BY THAT SLIDE.

AND THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES IS JUST EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING ON THAT SMARTPHONE NOW.

SO, THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO TRY TO KEEP FROM HAPPENING IS INTERRUPTING SERVICE.

WE DID NOTE GARLAND ALERT SYSTEM.

WE TALKED TO THE GARLAND PD, THE COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER, AND IT IS TEXT DRIVEN.

SO THERE'S THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN GARLAND TO GET TEXT ALERTS FROM THE CITY ON SITUATIONS LIKE GOOD OR BAD WEATHER RELATED, WHATEVER.

SO THAT'S PART OF THE REASON WHY WE'RE HERE IS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE STILL HAVE GOOD COMMUNICATIONS.

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

THANK YOU.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

THANK YOU, VINCE, I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR YOU, I JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR PUTTING THE PRESENTATION TOGETHER FOR US AND YOU KNOW, CLEARLY YOU DID YOUR DUE DILIGENCE AND I APPRECIATE THE EFFORT YOU PUT INTO IT.

THANK YOU.

[02:05:01]

YOU'RE WELCOME.

THANK Y'ALL.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

ANY ADDITIONAL, ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT.

COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION, INCLUDING THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, THE SUP AND THE DETAILED PLAN AS PRESENTED.

OK, SO THE.

APPROVE.

MOTION IS TO APPROVE ITEMS 10 E F AND G AS PRESENTED.

YES, SIR.

WITH A SECOND BY COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION COUNCIL OR MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD PREPARE THE VOTE FOR US, PLEASE AND COUNCIL AND DISPLAY THE VOTE, THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

I DON'T.

MADAM SECRETARY, DID WE HAVE ANY SPEAKERS ON THAT ITEM? I'M SORRY, WE DID NOT.

I DIDN'T THINK SO.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL SPEAKERS.

CITY MANAGER IS JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE MY HEART STAYS AT A HIGH LEVEL OF BEATING.

COUNCIL.

WE HAVE ONE FINAL CASE.

WE'VE TAKEN ONE RECESS.

I'M IN THE MOOD TO JUST CONTINUE ON AND LET'S JUST DO THIS.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE WILL NOW BE TO ITEMS 10 H, I AND J.

10 H IS CONSIDER A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT REQUEST BY ION DESIGN GROUP LLC TO

[Items 10H - 10J]

CONSTRUCT ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED HOMES WITH TRAILS AND OPEN SPACES.

THIS SITE IS LOCATED AT 4698 AND 4701 BUNKER HILL ROAD IN DISTRICT ONE.

IT ALSO INCLUDES A DETAILED PLAN AND THIS ONE ALSO A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.

THIS ONE CONSIDER ALSO HAS A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT.

SAME ADDRESS SAME APPLICANT MR. GUERIN.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO INCLUDE THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT AS PART OF THE PRESENTATION? UNLESS COUNCIL MEMBER BASS IS OPPOSED, I SAY WE DO THEM ALL AS.

SOUNDS GOOD.

I'VE GOT ALL RIGHT.

VERY GOOD.

SURE.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO BUILD THE ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE SINGLE FAMILY HOUSES IN A SUBDIVISION WITH TRAILS AND OPEN SPACES.

LOCATION IS ALONG BUNKER HILL ROAD.

THE APPLICANT IS ION DESIGN GROUP AND THE ACREAGE OF THE OVERALL SITE IS JUST UNDER FORTY TWO ACRES AND THE CURRENT ZONING DESIGNATION IS AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT.

HERE'S THE GENERAL LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IN NORTH GARLAND, AND HERE IS THE OUTLINE OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY HERE.

LOCATED IN TEAL AND ACCESSED FROM BUNKER HILL ROAD.

TO THE EAST IS A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT FOR MULTIFAMILY USES ACROSS BUNKER HILL ROAD, OF COURSE, IS THE CITY OF SACHSE SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOODS.

TO THE WEST AND SOUTH IS MORE AG LAND, INCLUDING ROWLETT CREEK AND FURTHER TO THE WEST IS A SINGLE FAMILY, A NEW SINGLE FAMILY DEVELOPMENT AND FURTHER TO THE SOUTH ACROSS ROWLETT CREEK IS, OF COURSE, THE FIREWHEEL TOWN CENTER.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR THIS AREA DESIGNATES IT AS COMPACT NEIGHBORHOODS AND PARKS AND OPEN SPACES.

AND THIS PROPOSAL ALIGNS WITH THOSE DESIGNATIONS WHEN TAKING THE NET DENSITY OF THE DEVELOPMENT WHEN FACTORING IN FLOODPLAIN AND INFRASTRUCTURE, IT'S ABOUT SEVEN POINT EIGHT DWELLING UNITS PER ACRE WITHIN THE RECOMMENDED SIX TO 12 DWELLING UNITS PER ACRE PER COMPACT NEIGHBORHOODS.

ADDITIONALLY, A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE SITE WILL REMAIN WITHIN THE FLOODPLAIN.

HOWEVER, THE USABLE OPEN SPACE WILL BE LANDSCAPED WITH PEDESTRIAN PATHWAYS, TRAILS AND OTHER AMENITIES.

HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA.

THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS ON THE TOP LEFT PHOTO THERE AND JUST SOME OTHER OTHER PHOTOS OF THE AREA NEAR BUNKER HILL ROAD.

HERE'S A SITE PLAN AGAIN.

IT IS ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED LOTS, AS WELL AS 17 HOA LOTS.

THERE ARE THREE LOT TYPES.

THE APPLICANT ONE OF THE COMMENTS THAT STAFF INITIALLY HAD WHEN THIS WAS FIRST PROCEEDING TO PLANNING COMMISSION WAS WE REALLY ENCOURAGED THE APPLICANT TO LOOK AT THE RIVER PLACE NEIGHBORHOOD FURTHER TO THE WEST.

THERE'S THE SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD I MENTIONED A WHILE AGO.

THAT'S A NEWLY CONSTRUCTED.

TO LOOK AT SOME EXAMPLES THERE OF A LITTLE BIT OF VARIETY OF LOT SIZES FRONTAGE REVERSES REAR ENTRY.

THE RIVER PLACE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH FRONT ENTRY AND REAR ENTRY, SOME THOUGHTFUL, OPEN SPACES, SO REALLY APPRECIATE THE APPLICANT REDESIGNING

[02:10:01]

SOME THINGS A BIT.

THEY HAVE PROVIDED THREE DIFFERENT LOT TYPES AS IN SIZES REALLY.

LOT A TYPE A.

THERE ARE TWENTY ONE LOTS.

THOSE ARE A MINIMUM OF SIX THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT LOTS.

THE PROPOSAL IS A PD BASED IN THE SF FIVE STANDARD A MINIMUM OF FIVE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET, BUT THEY ARE PROPOSING TO HAVE TWENTY ONE LOTS BE AT LEAST SIX THOUSAND FEET MINIMUM.

IF YOU KIND OF LOOK, IF YOU'RE ABLE TO SEE THAT IN THE SITE PLAN, YOU KIND OF TELL SOME OF THE ONES WITH A OVER THEM DO APPEAR A BIT LARGER.

LOTS B WOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF 4500 SQUARE FEET IN SIZE.

THERE ARE SEVENTY FIVE OF THOSE AND LOT TYPE C WOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF FOUR THOUSAND SQUARE FEET.

THERE ARE FIFTY THREE OF THOSE, AND I SHOULD MENTION THAT ALL OF THE LOT TYPE C'S ARE REAR ENTRY.

THERE ARE ALLEY LOADED AND THERE IS A CENTRALIZED OPEN SPACE WITH AMENITIES.

90 LOTS WOULD BE WITHOUT ALLEYS AND FIFTY NINE LOTS WOULD BE WITH ALLEYS.

HERE'S AN OPEN SPACE PLAN KIND OF DELINEATES THE SITE PLAN A LITTLE BIT CLEARER SINCE IT'S IN COLOR, BUT YOU CAN SEE THE OPEN SPACE LOTS PROVIDED HERE, WITH SOME CLEAR CONNECTIONS OVER TO A TRAIL, TRAIL CONNECTION HERE, WHICH THE DEVELOPER WOULD PROVIDE ULTIMATELY TO THE REGIONAL TRAIL.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT TRAILS A LITTLE BIT MORE HERE SHORTLY.

BUT THE LANDSCAPE PLAN IS SHOWN HERE.

IT MEETS GDC REQUIREMENTS.

THE CENTRAL OPEN SPACE AREA INCLUDES A PLAYGROUND, EXERCISE EQUIPMENT AND A SHADED STRUCTURE, AS WELL AS SOME TREES AND SEATING AREAS.

THE APPLICANT WOULD PROVIDE A SCREENING WALL AND TREES ALONG BUNKER HILL ROAD, YOU COULD SEE A MONUMENT SIGN THERE AS WELL AND TREE MONUMENT SIGN.

THERE'S AN ELEVATION OF THE SHADE STRUCTURE.

AND THE TRAIL PLAN INCLUDES THIS THE APPLICANT, AS PART OF THE FLOODPLAIN RECLAMATION, WOULD BE RECONSTRUCTING THE EXISTING 12 FOOT TRAIL AND AS PART OF THAT WOULD NEED TO REROUTE IT A BIT THROUGH REALTY CAPITALIST PROPERTY.

THIS IS IDENTIFIED IN THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, BUT YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE GENERAL TRAIL PLAN THERE.

IT WOULD ULTIMATELY CONNECT TO THE REGIONAL TRAIL, WHICH IS 12 FEET.

IN ADDITION, AGAIN, THIS IS IDENTIFIED IN THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT THE APPLICANT WOULD BE PROVIDING AN EIGHT FOOT TRAIL CONNECTION, A LOOP TRAIL AROUND A POND FEATURE TO BE LOCATED HERE JUST SOUTH OF THE PROPERTY.

I'M SORRY IF YOU CAN'T SEE MY CURSOR, BUT IN THE FLOODPLAIN AREA TO THE SOUTH OF THE DEVELOPMENT IS WHERE A POND WOULD BE PROVIDED BY THE DEVELOPER WITH EIGHT FOOT LOOP TRAILS.

AND THOSE TRAILS WOULD CONNECT TO THE 12 FOOT REGIONAL TRAIL, AND THE TRAILS WOULD HAVE BENCHES AND BE AMENITIZED TO THE CITY'S STANDARDS.

HERE ARE SOME SAMPLE ELEVATIONS OF THE HOMES.

ON THE LEFT YOU CAN SEE THE FRONT ENTRY HOMES, AND TO THE RIGHT YOU CAN SEE THE REAR ENTRY HOMES, WHICH WOULD HAVE ALLEYS IN THE BACK.

AND HERE'S A SUMMARY OF THE DEVIATIONS REQUESTED BY THE APPLICANT.

GIVEN SOME OF THE SITE CHALLENGES, QUITE A BIT OF IT IS FLOOD PLAIN, BUT THE APPLICANT REQUEST AGAIN THE BASE ZONING IS SF5, SO THEY WOULD BE VARYING KIND OF STARTING FROM, SF5 AND DOING SOME VARIATIONS FROM THERE.

AGAIN, THE LOT A TYPES COMPLY WITH THE GDC WITH A MINIMUM OF SIX THOUSAND SQUARE FEET.

THOSE WOULD, OF COURSE, BE CONDITIONED IN THE PD AS SUCH.

HOWEVER, LOTS OF B AND C TYPES WOULD HAVE 45 HUNDRED SQUARE FEET AND FOUR THOUSAND SQUARE FEET MINIMUMS, RESPECTIVELY.

THE LOT WIDTH MINIMUM THE GDC REQUIREMENT FOR SF 5 IS FIFTY FIVE FEET AND SIXTY FEET AT CORNERS.

THE APPLICANT WOULD BE PROPOSING A FORTY FIVE FOOT LOT MINIMUM WIDTHS FOR THE FRONT ENTRY LOTS AND A 40 FOOT MINIMUM WIDTHS FOR THE REAR ENTRY LOTS, AND THEY WOULD COMPLY WITH THE 60 FOOT CORNER LOT REQUIREMENT.

LOT COVERAGE.

THEY WOULD BE INCREASING THAT JUST FROM 50 FEET TO 55 FEET FRONT SETBACK, RATHER THAN THE REQUIRED 20 FEET.

THEY WOULD BE 15 FEET FOR THE FRONT ENTRY SETBACKS AND 10 FEET FOR THE REAR ENTRY.

AND THEN THE REAR SETBACKS.

IT WOULD BE ESSENTIALLY REVERSE A 10 FOOT MINIMUM REAR SETBACKS FOR ALL FRONT ENTRY LOTS AND 15 FOOT MINIMUM REAR SET BACKS FOR THE REAR ENTRY LOTS, AND THEY WOULD COMPLY WITH THE SIGN SETBACKS AND THE HEIGHT REQUIREMENTS PER THE GDC.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST.

THE CHANGE OF ZONING TO A PD FOR SF 5 USES AND THE DETAIL PLAN AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AS WELL, WITH A SEVEN TO ZERO VOTE AS

[02:15:01]

PRESENTED THAT INCLUDED AN APPROVAL OF THE ALLEY WAIVER OR PARTIAL ALLEY WAIVER, I SHOULD SAY.

AND MAYOR, I'LL KIND OF MOVE ON TO THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT.

SOME OF THOSE TERMS, THERE IS A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT INCLUDED ON THE AGENDA.

AGAIN, THE APPLICANT WOULD BE PROVIDING A POND AREA WITH AMENITIES AND LOOPED TRAIL AROUND IT AND MAKING THOSE PROPER CONNECTIONS TO THE REGIONAL TRAIL.

SO KIND OF START WITH THE CITY'S OBLIGATIONS.

THE CITY WOULD AND UNFORTUNATELY, MR. HESSER COULDN'T BE HERE THIS EVENING, BUT MR. HESSER AND HIS STAFF, ZIAD REVIEWED THIS AS WELL AS PART OF THE TEAM, AND THEY WERE GOOD WITH THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT.

BUT THE CITY'S OBLIGATIONS WOULD BE THAT WE WOULD OWN AND MAINTAIN THE POND AND OPEN SPACE AREAS TO THE SOUTH OF THE DEVELOPMENT.

THERE WOULD BE INCLUDED A WAIVER OF ANY TREE MITIGATION FEES OWED BY THE DEVELOPER AND TO ALLOW THE MODIFICATION OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS, PER THE PD DISTRICT PROPOSAL.

WE JUST WENT OVER THE DEVIATIONS THERE, BUT PER THE CITY ATTORNEY, THAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT AS PART OF THE OBLIGATIONS.

AND THE DEVELOPER THE OBLIGATIONS ARE LISTED HERE IN ADDITION TO, OF COURSE, RECONSTRUCTING THE REGIONAL TRAIL AND OF COURSE, PROVIDING BUILDING AND PROVIDING THE POND AND DEDICATING THAT TO THE CITY LISTED SOME SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS HERE A SUPPLY WELL TO MAINTAIN WATER LEVEL IN THE POND AND LIGHTED AREA, AERATING FOUNTAINS FOR THE POND PROPER TO BANK STABILIZATION.

AND THIS IS ACTUALLY AN UPDATE HERE MAYOR AND COUNCIL THE DEVELOPER EXPRESSED SOME CONCERN ABOUT THE EDGING OF THE POND.

SO RATHER THAN DECORATIVE MASONRY EDGING, WE'LL EXPLORE MORE OF A SODDED SLOPE BETWEEN THE WATER AND THE TRAIL AS IT GOES UP.

MR. HESSER IS AWARE OF THAT AND IS WILLING TO KIND OF WORK THROUGH THAT WITH THE DEVELOPER.

AN EIGHT FOOT WIDE TRAIL AROUND THE PUBLICLY DEDICATED PORTION OF THE POND TO CREATE A COMPLETE LOOPED TRAIL IN CONNECTION TO THE CITY'S REGIONAL TRAIL.

THE TRAIL SHALL FOLLOW STANDARDS IDENTIFIED IN THE TRAILS AND BIKEWAYS MASTER PLAN.

THE HOA SHALL MAINTAIN THE OPEN SPACE AREAS SHOWN IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE LOTS ABUTTING THE AMENITY AND POND AREAS ON THE SOUTHERN END OF THE DEVELOPMENT IN OTHER WORDS.

PARK BENCHES SHALL BE PROVIDED EVERY QUARTER MILE ALONG THE PROPOSED EIGHT FOOT WIDE TRAIL TWO SCENIC OVERLOOKS TO THE PROPOSED POND.

THE DEVELOPER AND THE PARKS AND REC STAFF WILL CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHER ON HOW EXACTLY THAT LOOKS AND ADEQUATE NUMBER OF LARGE CANOPY TREES WITH IRRIGATION TO PROVIDE EVENTUAL SHADE FOR PROPOSED BENCHES AND OVERLOOKS.

SO AGAIN, THAT'S THE LIST OF DEVELOPERS OBLIGATIONS IDENTIFIED IN THE AGREEMENT.

AND WITH THAT MAYOR, WE GOING BACK TO THE NOTIFICATION LETTERS FOR THE ZONING CASE.

WE MAILED OUT 17 NOTIFICATION LETTERS.

WE RECEIVED TWO IN FAVOR OF THE REQUEST ONE.

ONE WAS WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA.

ONE WAS OUTSIDE.

THOSE ARE THE TWO IN FAVOR.

AND WE RECEIVED FIVE IN OPPOSITION.

JUST ONE OF THOSE WITHIN THE NOTIFICATION AREA AND MAYOR AND COUNCIL I SHOULD MENTION THAT WITH THAT NOTIFICATION OR OPPOSITION THE NOTIFICATION AREA THAT DOES TRIGGER THE 20 PERCENT RULE, WHICH WOULD BE IN EFFECT IF AND WHEN THE ORDINANCE.

WHEN THE ORDINANCE.

YES, SIR.

SO IT NEEDS SEVEN, IT CAN.

BUT WHEN THE ORDINANCE IS ACTUALLY APPROVED.

THAT'S CORRECT.

RIGHT, YES SIR.

RIGHT.

OK, CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION MAYOR.

JUST ONE OTHER THING REAL QUICK.

COUNCIL.

WE DO HAVE ANOTHER ZONING CASE AFTER THIS THAT COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION, SO I APOLOGIZE TO THE APPLICANT THAT'S WAITING.

AND WE DID RECEIVE FROM ONE OF THE FOLKS IN ATTENDANCE HERE TONIGHT.

WE DO HAVE ANOTHER COMMENT LETTER THAT CAME IN.

THIS IS FROM DEBORAH LOVELL MORRISON.

SHE IS THE OWNER AT 5045 BUNKER HILL ROAD, AND SHE IS IN OPPOSITION.

AND WITH THAT, QUESTIONS FOR STAFF.

MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE POND BEHIND AND THE AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE TWO.

SO IS CITY OF GARLAND AFTER ITS CONSTRUCTION TAKING OWNERSHIP OF HOA LOT 17, WHICH IS IN THEIR DETAILED PLAN.

AND THAT'S THE POND LOT THERE.

YES, SIR.

YEAH.

OK.

AND AS FAR AS MAINTENANCE FROM THE SITE, YOU JUST HAD UP OR HAVE UP, YOU HAD UP PREVIOUSLY RIGHT THERE, THE DEVELOPER FOR THE BANK STABILIZATION THERE REQUIRED TO STABILIZE IT AND MAINTAIN IT UP UNTIL CONSTRUCTION.

AND THEN WE TAKE OWNERSHIP AND MAINTENANCE OF THAT AFTERWARDS.

OR CAN YOU CLARIFY THAT FOR ME? I BELIEVE THAT'S CORRECT.

WELL, ONCE THE CONSTRUCTION PLANS, I'M KIND OF LOOKING AT THE ATTORNEY THERE, BUT THE CONSTRUCTION PLANS GET COMPLETED.

THE CITY WOULD THEN ACCEPT AND INSPECT AND ACCEPT THE IMPROVEMENTS AT THAT TIME.

SO AFTER, IF THERE'S 10 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD OF BANKS FAILURE THAN THE CITY'S

[02:20:04]

RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN THAT AT THAT POINT.

THAT WOULD BE MY UNDERSTANDING.

YES, SIR.

AND BUT HERE IS ALSO THE HOA SHALL MAINTAIN THAT OPEN SPACE IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE LOTS ABUTTING THE MEETING UP TO THE POND AREA.

SO THAT'S WHERE MY CONFUSION LIES RIGHT THERE.

SURE.

YEAH, AND IT'S AN INTERESTING THIS POND IS ALSO ON TWO SEPARATE LOTS, IT GOES ACROSS THE LOT LINE THERE.

THAT'S AN INTERESTING SITUATION I HADN'T SEEN BEFORE AS WELL.

MM HMM.

SURE.

AND I SHOULD MENTION THE DEVELOPER IS IN CLOSE COMMUNICATION WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD REALTY CAPITAL ON COST SHARING AND MAKING SURE THAT'S A SEAMLESS CONSTRUCTION PROCESS.

BUT YEAH, THE INTENT IS AS THIS MAY BE A LITTLE SMALL TO SEE COUNCILMAN, BUT IF YOU CAN SEE THAT AREA JUST IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE LOTS THAT THE PARK STAFF HAD PREFERRED, THE HOA MAINTAIN THAT RATHER THAN MAINTAINING RIGHT UP TO THE, THEY'D HAVE A WROUGHT IRON FENCE BACK ON THAT SIDE.

BUT ONCE YOU GET REALLY TO THE TRAIL AND THE BANK AND POND AREAS IS REALLY WHERE THE CITY WOULD TAKE OVER.

THE TRAIL, WOULD BE ON THE FAR WELL PLANNED SOUTH SIDE OF THAT, THEN ACROSS THE POND, ESSENTIALLY WHERE WE WOULD MAINTAIN IT.

BUT THE HOA WOULD MAINTAIN ALL UP FROM THE BACK OF THE LOTS TO THE EDGE OF THE WATER THEN.

THAT'S MY UNDERSTANDING.

YES SIR.

OK.

I BELIEVE MR. BRADFORD MAY HAVE SOME MORE CLARIFICATION.

IF COUNCILMAN IS FINISHED.

YES, SIR.

YEAH.

WILL, WOULD WOULD YOU TOUCH ON THE TREE MITIGATION FUND PORTION OF THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, PLEASE? YES, SIR.

YES, THAT IS ONE OF THE CITY'S OBLIGATIONS THAT THE CITY WOULD WAIVE THE TREE MITIGATION FEES, ANY TREE MITIGATION FEES OWED BY THE DEVELOPER.

YES, SIR.

MR. BRADFORD WAS THERE THE I THINK COUNCIL DESERVES TO KNOW HOW MUCH THAT IS.

OH YES, SIR, YES, SIR.

YES, THERE WAS A PRELIMINARY ESTIMATE.

YES, IT WAS IN THE RANGE OF ABOUT SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND ESTIMATE FOR TREE MITIGATION.

YES, SIR.

OKAY, THAT'S ALL THE QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, SIR.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

MAYOR PRO TEM ASKED MOST OF MY QUESTION.

BUT MR. GUERIN, MAYBE YOU CAN'T TELL ME RIGHT NOW.

BUT WHEN YOU SAY, CITY OWNED AND MAINTAIN, IF THIS IS APPROVED, CAN YOU TELL ME NOW WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? WHAT IS THAT? CAN YOU ELABORATE ON AT THIS TIME? DO YOU HAVE? YES, SIR.

SO IN YOUR DISCUSSIONS OR WHAT.

THE DEVELOPER WOULD.

AND I ASSUME THAT THE MOST OF THE ONEROUS IS GOING TO FALL ON OUR PARKS DEPARTMENT.

SO WHAT WOULD THAT LOOK LIKE? YES, SIR.

THE DEVELOPER WOULD CONSTRUCT THE POND AND THE TRAILS AND THE OPEN SPACE AREAS.

AND ONCE ACCEPTED BY THE CITY, THE CITY WOULD TAKE ON THE OWNERSHIP AND MAINTENANCE OF THAT.

YOU'RE RIGHT, THAT WOULD MOST LIKELY BE THE PARKS AND REC STAFF THAT WOULD MAINTAIN THAT.

AS I SAID, MR. HESSER HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THIS AGREEMENT.

UNFORTUNATELY, COULDN'T BE HERE THIS EVENING DUE TO A FAMILY ISSUE.

BUT YES, SIR.

ONCE THE DEVELOPER CONSTRUCTS IT TO THE CITY'S STANDARDS AND ACCEPTANCE LEVEL, AT THAT POINT, IT WOULD BE ACCEPTED BY THE CITY FOR OWNERSHIP AND CONTINUED MAINTENANCE.

WHAT'S THE APPROXIMATE DISTANCE FROM THE EDGE OF THE POND TO THE NEAREST PROPERTY LINE? DO YOU KNOW? I'M AFRAID WE DON'T KNOW THAT YET.

IT HASN'T BEEN FULLY DESIGNED, SO THESE ARE REALLY JUST THE TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT AND WE WILL IT WILL GO FURTHER INTO DESIGN AS THIS PROCESS TOWARDS DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES.

OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, AND THANK YOU, MR. BRADFORD, FOR ASKING THE QUESTION ABOUT THE TREE MITIGATION AMOUNT, BECAUSE THAT WAS MY FIRST QUESTION.

THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MITIGATION THAT WE WOULD WAIVE.

SO CAN YOU MOVE FORWARD THROUGH THE SLIDES BECAUSE THIS IS OR MAYBE BACKWARDS? A PARTICULAR SLIDE.

KEEP GOING.

KEEP GOING, KEEP GOING.

KEEP GOING.

WE HAD A LIST OF DEVELOPERS.

FOR THE AGREEMENT.

I'M SORRY.

COUNCIL MEMBER YEAH, I'M GOING THE WRONG DIRECTION.

I'M SORRY.

YES, THE DEVELOPER'S OBLIGATE

[02:25:02]

THE LAST ITEM THERE.

ADEQUATE NUMBER OF LARGE CANOPY TREES.

THAT IS A VERY VAGUE TERM.

SO TELL ME WHAT ADEQUATE MEANS.

ARE WE GOING TO DEFINE THAT? BECAUSE THAT THAT IS NOT VERY SPECIFIC, THAT COULD BE FURTHER DEFINED.

I KNOW THAT WAS AN ASK FROM THE PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT TO MAINLY TO ENSURE THAT THE SHADE IS PRIMARILY FOCUSED AROUND THE BENCH WHEREVER THE BENCHES ARE LOCATED IN THE OVERLOOK, SO THAT CERTAINLY WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE REVIEWED BY STAFF AND NEED TO BE FOUND ACCEPTABLE.

IF WE NEED TO BE MORE SPECIFIC ABOUT THAT AND THE ATTORNEY'S OPINION, WE I'M SURE WE CAN.

THAT'S JUST WE'VE I'VE RUN INTO THAT BEFORE WITH OTHER PROJECTS WHERE IT WAS LEFT LOOSE AND THEN WHAT ONE PERSON CONSIDERS ADEQUATE, I CONSIDER GROSSLY INADEQUATE.

SO I ALWAYS PREFERRED IF IT'S SPECIFIC.

THE OTHER THING JUST AND I ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS, BUT SINCE THE POND WILL BE UNDER OUR CARE AND MANAGEMENT AND OUR OWNERSHIP, I ASSUME THAT WILL BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

THAT WHOLE AREA AROUND THE POND AND THE TRAILS AND THE BENCHES.

YES MA'AM.

SO THIS IS ALL THIS ISN'T PRIVATE.

THIS DOESN'T BELONG TO THE HOA AND WON'T BE GATED OFF FROM THE PUBLIC COMMUNITY.

THEY'LL HAVE FULL ACCESS.

RIGHT.

THIS WOULD BE ACCESSIBLE TO THE PUBLIC.

OK, ALL RIGHT.

AND THE TREE MITIGATION AMOUNT TROUBLES ME.

IT ALWAYS DOES EVERY TIME WE DO THIS, SO I WILL JUST MUSE UPON THAT FOR A MOMENT, BUT THAT'S THE LAST OF MY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MA'AM.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? I SEE NONE.

THANK YOU, SIR, MADAM SECRETARY.

WE HAVE THREE SPEAKERS ON THIS ITEM.

WE HAVE THE APPLICANT, CONNIE COOPER, WITH A PRESENTATION, AND WE HAVE RESIDENT DONNA THOMAS CHALKER AFTER THAT AND THEN A VIRTUAL SPEAKER, DAVE WILCOX.

VERY GOOD CONNIE COOPER IS FIRST.

PLEASE, MA'AM.

THANK YOU.

YOU CAN GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS AND YOU WILL HAVE 10 MINUTES TO MAKE YOUR PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

CONNIE COOPER ADDRESS 39 I WROTE IT DOWN BECAUSE FOR SOME REASON YOU ALWAYS LOOK AT WHERE DO I LIVE? 3839 MCKINNEY AVENUE, DALLAS, TEXAS 75204.

I'M A SENIOR ASSOCIATE WITH ION DESIGN GROUP.

WITH ME TONIGHT IS BRYAN KLEIN, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF ION DESIGN, AND DAVE WILCOX, HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT.

HE'S ON THE ZOOM.

AND HE'S HEAD OF DEVELOPMENT FOR LIBERTY BANKERS INSURANCE COMPANY.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO START OUT WITH SAYING THIS HAS TAKEN A VILLAGE TO COME HERE TONIGHT TO THE PROCESS.

THE PRODUCT THAT YOU SEE HERE TONIGHT HAS BEEN A TRUE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY.

THE STAFF IS STARTING WITH YOUR PLANNING STAFF, YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF, PLANNING, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, PUBLIC WORKS, ENGINEERING AND PARKS AND ALSO OUR NEIGHBOR WITH REALTY CAPITAL, BECAUSE THE SANITARY SEWER WILL RUN FROM EAST TO WEST AND THIS WILL MAKE THIS PROPERTY THAT'S VERY VALUABLE TO THE CITY.

DEVELOPABLE NOT ONLY FOR US, NOT ONLY FOR REALTY CAPITAL, BUT TO PROPERTY TO OUR WEST.

SO WITH THAT, I WOULD LIKE LET'S SEE.

THIS SHOULD GET ME TO THE NEXT SLIDE AS WELL, AND THANK YOU FOR AN EXCELLENT PRESENTATION, BUT I'LL BE VERY BRIEF.

IT IS CONSISTENT WITH ENVISION GARLAND.

IT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN.

IT'S PART IT'S CONSISTENT WITH YOUR VITAL NEIGHBORHOODS BUILDING BLOCK, WITH THE DENSITIES AT SIX TO 12 UNIT HOMES PER ACRE.

AND VERY IMPORTANTLY, IT IMPLEMENTS YOUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES FOR THE CITY.

IT IS IN YOUR 190 CATALYST AREA.

THIS AREA YOU'VE RECOGNIZED AS A CITY THAT YOU HAVE VERY LITTLE LAND AVAILABLE AND UNFORTUNATELY THAT LAND THAT IS AVAILABLE IS CHALLENGED AND THIS IS ONE OF THOSE SITES.

THIS WHOLE AREA IS CHALLENGED BY A SIGNIFICANT FLOODPLAIN, AND I'LL TALK BRIEFLY ABOUT THE MITIGATION AND THE IMPACT OF THE FLOODPLAIN.

IT IS CONSISTENT WITH YOUR HOUSING POLICIES AND TRYING TO DEVELOP MORE COMPACT HOUSING TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF YOUR LAND.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, HERE IT'S CONSISTENT WITH YOUR PARKS AND OPEN SPACE BUILDING BLOCKS.

CONNECTS OPEN SPACE GREEN SPACES TO YOUR TRAIL NETWORK AND PROVIDES A CONTINUATION OF THE NETWORK TO THE CITY.

THIS, AS I SAID, IS A CHALLENGING SITE.

IT'S FORTY ONE ACRES.

EIGHTY FIVE PERCENT OF THOSE ACRES ARE IN THE FLOODPLAIN.

WHEN WE COMPLETE THE DEVELOPMENT, 40 PERCENT STILL WILL REMAIN WITHIN THE

[02:30:03]

FLOODPLAIN AREA.

THERE'S BEEN A LOT TO ASSURE SOME OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN DONE WORKING WITH PUBLIC WORKS AND ENGINEERING TO ENSURE THAT THE ACCOMMODATIONS OF FLOOD WATERS AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

ADDITIONAL WORK WILL BE DONE ONCE THE ZONING IS APPROVED, BUT IT BUILDS INTO THE THINGS TO ACCOMMODATE MITIGATION OF THE FLOODWAY AREA.

THE NET DENSITY IS EIGHT HOMES PER ACRE AND, AS I SAID, 40 PERCENT WILL REMAIN IN THE FLOODPLAIN, AS WILL TALKED ABOUT.

WE'VE GOT A MIX, AND BY THE WAY, I WANT TO SAY I THINK WE WERE READY TO COME BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION BACK I THINK EARLY SEPTEMBER AND WE HAD A CALL AND SAID, LET'S LOOK AT REDESIGNING SOME OF THIS.

WE LIKE WHAT RIVER PLACE HAS DONE.

WE WOULD PREFER THE CENTRAL OPEN SPACE IN THE AREA TO BE IN THE PARK, TO BE IN THE CENTRAL AREA.

WE WOULD LIKE MORE OF A MIX.

AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID IS WE ENDED UP HAVING 59 HOMES TO BE REAR ENTRY.

SO THERE'S A MIX OF THAT.

THERE'S A MIX OF LARGER LOTS AND SMALLER LOTS.

THERE'S THIS IS TO ME, A VERY TO US, A VERY DYNAMIC DEVELOPMENT WE'VE DONE.

AND I THINK IT WAS MADE BETTER BECAUSE OF THE COMMENTS WE'VE RECEIVED FROM STAFF AN THE CITY ON BEHALF OF STAFF TO IMPROVE WHAT WE HAD COME BEFORE YOU.

ENHANCED BUILDING MATERIALS 80 PERCENT OF THE FINISHED AREA WILL BE FINISHED FAÃ♪ADE WILL BE BRICK, STONE OR STUCCO AND ENHANCED ROOF DESIGN.

THIS GOES BEYOND YOUR STANDARD TO AN EIGHT TO 12 ROOF, IF YOU KNOW ABOUT ROOF PITCH, THE STEEPER THE ROOF, THE BETTER ENHANCES THE BUILDING.

YOU'VE SEEN HOMES.

YOU THINK IT'D BE GREAT IF IT JUST HAD MORE PITCH TO THE ROOF.

SO IT ENHANCES THE VALUE OF THE HOME'S.

ENHANCED DRIVEWAY PAVEMENT.

DRIVEWAY FRONT LOADED LOTS WILL BE EITHER STAMPED CONCRETE INTEGRAL COLORED CONCRETE OR EXPOSED AGGREGATE OR SALT FINISHED CONCRETE.

NOW I HAD TO LOOK THAT UP.

AND ESSENTIALLY, THAT'S PUTTING THE SALT IN THERE WHEN YOU SET THE CONCRETE AND YOU ALL PROBABLY KNOW THAT, BUT THEN TAKING IT OUT.

IT'S ENHANCED PEDESTRIAN SYSTEM.

WE HAVE FIVE FOOT SIDEWALKS, NOT FOUR FOOT SIDEWALKS THROUGHOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

BUNKER HILL WILL CONTINUE THE SIX FOOT SIDEWALK ON BUNKER HILL AND WE WILL HAVE EIGHT FOOT TRAIL CONNECTIONS.

SO THOSE ARE SOME OF THE ENHANCEMENTS THIS WILL BRING.

WILL'S ALREADY TALKED WITH YOU ABOUT THE TYPICAL ELEVATIONS.

THESE ARE ILLUSTRATIVE AND THIS IS 11 PERCENT OF THE AREA WILL BE IN OPEN SPACE AND THIS DOES NOT COUNT THE PART THAT'S IN THE.

THIS IS OUR WITHIN THE AREA HERE.

AND AS YOU SEE IN THE TRAIL, THOSE ARE OUR PEDESTRIAN NETWORKS, THE TRAIL CONNECTION THERE.

THE GREEN AREA IS THE EXISTING CITY TRAIL CONNECTION TO THE YOU'RE LOOKING BUNKER HILL IS TO YOUR RIGHT ON THE DRAWING AND THE EXISTING REGIONAL TRAIL IS TO YOUR LEFT.

AND THIS HEAVYSET GREEN LINE WILL CONNECT TO THE EXISTING TRAIL, OBVIOUSLY WITH ADDITIONAL FILL AND THAT WILL BE TAKING PLACE.

THIS TRAIL SYSTEM WILL NEED TO BE RECONNECTED AND REBUILT, AND LET'S SEE IF.

THIS GIVES YOU A BETTER IDEA.

NOW I APOLOGIZE.

I SHOULD HAVE UPDATED THIS MAP.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE CAN YOU SEE THERE IS A CORNER SOMEWHERE HERE? I'M JUST GOING TO TALK THAT LARGE POND IS THE SOUTHERN PART OF OUR PROPERTY THAT IS TO MITIGATE THE FLOOD AND MAKE THIS AREA DEVELOPABLE.

WITHOUT THAT, THIS AREA WOULD NOT BE DEVELOPABLE, JUST LIKE TO THE EAST OF US WITH REALTY CAPITAL AND WHERE EXISTING FIREWHEELL APARTMENTS ARE NONE OF THAT WOULD BE DEVELOPABLE WITHOUT MITIGATING THE FLOOD AREA.

HOWEVER, I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS COME ABOUT THROUGH THIS PROCESS IS IT WILL BE DEVELOPED AS AN AMENITY TO THE CITY THAT WE WILL BE DEVELOPING WITH AT THE EXPENSE OF LIBERTY BANKERS.

IF YOU SEE THE POND, ONE OF THE THINGS WELL SOMEONE SAID, WELL, IT'S SPLIT BETWEEN TWO PROPERTIES.

YES, IT IS.

BUT THERE'S AN AGREEMENT WITH OUR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, REALTY CAPITAL, TO DEED THAT PART OF THE POND BACK TO, NOT BACK, BUT TO LIBERTY BANKERS, SO THAT THERE WILL NOT BE DUAL PARTIAL OWNERSHIP OF THAT OR POND OWNERSHIP.

AND THERE WILL BE THE POND.

THE WALKWAY AROUND THE POND WILL BE THE ENTIRE WAY, IT DOESN'T SHOW THERE NOW, BUT

[02:35:04]

ESSENTIALLY ALL OF THE POND TO THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF THIS DRAWING HERE, ALL OF THE POND WILL HAVE AN EIGHT FOOT WALKWAY WITH THE AMENITIES THAT WILL TALKED ABOUT.

LET'S SEE, IT WILL BE CITY OWNED.

AND I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THERE WAS A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE HOA PARKSIDE HOA WOULD OWN A PORTION IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OF THE LOTS.

PROBABLY THE BEST THING WOULD BE IS THE THE TRAIL THE EIGHT FOOT TRAIL THAT GOES AROUND.

THAT MIGHT BE THE BEST DEMARCATION BECAUSE YOU DON'T.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IT'S PUBLIC, ALWAYS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

AND SO IT'D BE BETTER AT SOME POINT THAT THAT BE THE NORTHERN EDGE OF THE CITY'S PROPERTY AN THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE HOA WOULD BE THE EDGE OF THE TRAIL ON THE NORTHERN SIDE SO THAT IT WAS CLEAR THAT IT WAS ALWAYS WOULD BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC BECAUSE THIS WOULD BE A CITY PARK.

AND SO I THINK THAT'S THOSE AS YOU SEE THE GREEN AREA THAT WE WILL BE NEEDING RIGHT NOW, THE EXISTING TRAIL GOES STRAIGHT DOWN TO CONNECTS TO YOUR REGIONAL TRAIL, AND WE'RE NEEDING TO GO AROUND THE POND THAT WILL BE A CULVERTS AND IT'LL BE APPROPRIATELY, YOU KNOW, DONE TO ACCOMMODATE PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC THERE.

SO I BELIEVE THAT'S IT.

SO WITH THAT, ANY QUESTIONS, I'M SURE YOU MAY HAVE SOME.

YOU DID THAT WITH 50 SECONDS TO SPARE.

VERY GOOD.

COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

MS. COOPER THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

I JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU, I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN A LONG PROCESS FOR YOU GUYS AND YOU KNOW, WE'VE MADE YOU GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD QUITE A FEW TIMES.

AND SO I REALLY APPRECIATE THE PRODUCT THAT YOU GUYS HAVE BROUGHT TO US TODAY.

YES.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

THANK YOU.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? I SEE NONE.

COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

OOP, SORRY.

OH, I'M SORRY, WE HAVE SPEAKERS.

BRYAN KLEIN EXCUSE ME? BRYAN KLEIN WITH ION DESIGN.

I'LL SIGN UP IF I NEED TO.

I'M THE OWNER OF ION DESIGN.

I'LL USE THE LAST 15 SECONDS THAT SHE HAD IT IF YOU.

50.

50 OH 50.

WE'RE ALL, GOOD THEN.

A LOT OF TIMES YOU TALK ABOUT A NEIGHBORHOOD AND YOU CONSIDER WELL WE'LL JUST GO OUT THERE, KNOCK THE WEEDS DOWN, PUT IT IN WATER AND SEWER AND STREET.

HEY, WE'RE GOOD.

IN THIS CASE, IT WAS NECESSARY TO GO THROUGH FLOODPLAIN RECLAMATION.

WE DID A HYDRAULIC STUDY OF THE FLOOD PLAIN.

WENT THROUGH TWENTY EIGHT MONTHS, ACTUALLY FROM THE FIRST TIME THAT WE MET WITH STAFF UNTIL NOW TO BE ABLE TO BRING THIS TO YOU.

THE SIZE OF THE PODIUM HERE, I'LL JUST USE THIS AS AN EXAMPLE IS ABOUT A CUBIC YARD.

YOU KNOW, YOU CONSIDER THIS.

IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD POSSIBLE, FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND CUBIC YARDS OF DIRT WILL HAVE TO BE MOVED.

SO THIS HAS BEEN NO SMALL EXERCISE.

THAT'S NOT A CLAIM OF ANY KIND.

BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE POND, IT'S NOT GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT'S ABOUT 12 INCHES DEEP.

IT WILL BE A VERY SERIOUS POND WITH FOUNTAINS TO AERATE THE WATER AND MAKE SURE THAT IT STAYS CLEAN AND IN THE PROCESS OF DOING THIS TREES HAD TO BE, YOU KNOW, WE'LL HAVE TO TAKE THEM OUT.

BUT ALSO IN THE PROCESS OF DOING THIS WHAT'S HAPPENED IS REALTY CAPITAL HAS WORKED WITH LIBERTY BANKERS TO BRING A SANITARY SEWER THAT WASN'T OUT THERE BEFORE TO BENEFIT ALL THE PARTIES, INCLUDING.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM MS. CHALKER THIS EVENING.

SHE WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS AS WELL BECAUSE SHE WILL HAVE SANITARY SEWER.

SO, OK, I JUST WANTED TO POINT OUT THOSE THINGS TO YOU THAT SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE A VERY SIMPLE PROCESS TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE A PIECE OF PAPER AND KIND OF COLOR IT YELLOW AND PUT SOME LOTS ON IT.

THAT PART WAS THE EASY PART IN THIS CASE.

THE OTHER PARTS ARE A LITTLE BIT MORE INVOLVED.

YOU'RE OUT OF TIME.

I'M OUT OF TIME.

THANK YOU.

HANG ON ONE SECOND.

DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM WILLIAMS. THANK YOU, SIR.

MR. ENGINEER.

THANK YOU, SIR, FOR COMING DOWN.

JUST TWO QUICK QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE POND AND THE DEPTH.

SO CAN YOU ELABORATE A LITTLE BIT ON THE MAINTENANCE, YOUR VISION FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THE POND ONCE THIS DEVELOPMENT IS DONE, IT'S ACCORDING TO THIS IT'S GOING TO BE THE CITY'S.

SPEAK TO THAT.

THE SECOND THING CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR THE TREE MITIGATION REQUEST THAT'S BEING ASKED FOR THE WAIVER ON THAT? THE MAINTENANCE OF THE POND AND THE POND HAS BEEN CREATED, AS I SAID, BECAUSE OF NECESSITY IN TERMS OF BEING ABLE TO RECLAIM THE FLOODPLAIN, NOT CAUSE ANY FURTHER FLOODING AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

THE MAINTENANCE OF THE POND IS OR IS GOING TO BE FAIRLY LIMITED IN A COUPLE OF REGARDS,

[02:40:01]

ONE IT'S GOING TO BE VERY DEEP SO THE WATER WILL STAY VERY COLD.

THE FOUNTAINS ACTUALLY AERATE THE POND TO GO AHEAD AND MAKE SURE THAT IT TURNS OVER SO IT DOESN'T TURN GREEN AS MANY OF THE SHALLOW PONDS, YOU KNOW, HAVE A TENDENCY TO DO.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO BUDGET FOR MAINTENANCE.

CLEARLY, IT WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT LIKE THE REST OF THE DEVELOPMENT, FOR INSTANCE, YOU PUT WATER AND SEWER IN THE GROUND AND PAVEMENT ON THE STREETS, AND THE CITY THEN TAKES IT OVER IN THAT AFTER THAT OCCURS BECAUSE IT'S BRAND NEW, IT'S GOING TO LAST A GOOD LONG WHILE.

THE POND ITSELF WILL HAVE IT'S ACTUALLY EXCAVATED DOWN INTO AN AREA OF THE EARTH THAT'S ROCK AND SO IT WOULD HAVE A MUCH LESS TENDENCY TO GO AHEAD AND HAVE, IF YOU WILL, MUD, YOU KNOW, COMING DOWN TO THE BOTTOM, IT'S GOING TO HAVE ANY REGULAR MAINTENANCE THAT POND WOULD NEED TO HAVE.

WE TEND TO LOOK AT IT, THOUGH, AS QUITE AN AMENITY.

OTHERWISE, THE CITY, I DON'T KNOW, WOULD BE VERY INCLINED TO GO AHEAD AND WRITE A CHECK TO CREATE A POND LIKE THAT.

SO IN THAT REGARD, IT'S CONSIDERED, I THINK, AS A BIT OF AN OFFSET FOR SOME OF THE TREE MITIGATION BECAUSE THE TREES AS WE UNDERSTAND WERE PART OF A TREE FARM FROM A LONG TIME AGO.

IN THAT REGARD, THEY'RE PROBABLY ARE PLANTED IN NICE, NEAT ROWS AND THERE WERE QUITE A NUMBER OF THEM.

AND SO THERE MAY BE MORE TREES THERE THAN YOU KNOW MIGHT HAVE OTHERWISE GROWN NATURALLY THERE.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT.

I HOPE THAT ADDRESSES YOUR QUESTION.

I THINK THAT'S I THINK THAT'S WHAT'S PART OF THE WHOLE PACKAGE, IF YOU WILL.

YES.

NOW, BY THE WAY, THAT DOESN'T MEAN WHEN WE GET ALL DONE, THERE WON'T BE ANY TREES ON THE SITE.

THERE WILL BE A QUITE A NUMBER OF TREES PLANTED WITH THE SINGLE FAMILY, AS YOU KNOW, CUSTOMARY FOR SINGLE FAMILY.

WHEN YOU MOVE INTO YOUR NEW HOME, YOU'LL LIKE TO HAVE SOMETHING OUTSIDE.

YOU CAN WATER AND WATCH IT GROW.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SIR.

BUT AS FAR AS CHECK WRITING, I DON'T LIKE WRITING CHECKS EVEN FOR MY PERSONAL LIGHT BILL, BUT I HAVE TO.

SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS PROJECT.

THANKS FOR ANSWERING THE QUESTION.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

MR. BRADFORD.

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO ADD TO THAT? YES, SIR.

I'D JUST LIKE TO FURTHER EXPLAIN PART OF THE PROCESS HERE.

THE FIRST RENDERING OF THE DEVELOPMENT, IF YOU'LL FORGIVE ME, WE WERE A LITTLE UNDERWHELMED WITH AND DIDN'T SEE SOME OF THE AMENITIES THAT WE FELT WOULD MAKE THE NEIGHBORHOOD MORE ATTRACTIVE.

AT ONE POINT IN THE PROCESS, THEY CAME TO US WHEN THEY DISCOVERED THE AMOUNT OF THE TREE MITIGATION.

AGAIN, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT A VERY, VERY LARGE NUMBER OF TREES BECAUSE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A FORMER TREE FARM.

AND SO THERE WERE SOME INQUIRIES MADE BY THE DEVELOPER ABOUT US WAIVING A PORTION OR ALL OF THOSE FUNDS.

THE HIGHER LEVEL OF AMENITIES THAT YOU SAW TONIGHT WERE BASICALLY A TRADE OFF FOR THE TREE MITIGATION FUND.

YOU'RE NOT SIMPLY WAIVING THE FUNDS.

WHAT THEY DID WAS, THEY TOOK THOSE FUNDS AND INVESTED THOSE BACK INTO THE DEVELOPMENT TO BRING BACK SOMETHING THAT WE THOUGHT MADE THE DEVELOPMENT MORE APPEALING.

PLUS GAVE THE CITY A PUBLIC ASSET TO COMPLEMENT THE TRAIL SYSTEM THAT WAS GOING THROUGH THERE.

YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

THANK YOU, SIR.

MADAM SECRETARY, I BELIEVE WE HAD TWO SPEAKERS.

ARE WE DO? DONNA.

IS ONE OF THEM WITH THE APPLICANT? YES.

DID I UNDERSTAND THAT CORRECTLY? IS THAT THE ZOOM? LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO THAT ONE FIRST.

OK.

CARMA, COULD YOU OPEN UP THE LINE FOR MR. DAVE WILCOX.

AND MR. WILCOX THE LINE IS OPEN.

PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, FOR THE RECORD.

HELLO.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL DAVE WILCOCK 1605 LIBERTY LBJ FREEWAY SUITE 700 IN DALLAS SEVEN FIVE TWO THREE FOUR.

I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS THE COUNCIL.

I WANT TO GIVE A SPECIAL APPRECIATION THAT I HAVE FOR CITY STAFF AS WELL AS OUR REPRESENTATIVES THERE WITH YOU TONIGHT THAT JUST PRESENTED AND VERY

[02:45:04]

EFFICIENTLY OUR PLANS AND THEY'VE DONE SUCH A TREMENDOUS JOB.

I'M REALLY JUST HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

COUNCIL, ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. WILCOX.

MR. WILCOX I DO NOT HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR YOU, THANK YOU, SIR.

OK, THANK YOU.

AND MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU CAN CALL OUR LAST SPEAKER, DONNA THOMAS.

MA'AM, IF YOU COULD COME FORWARD, PLEASE.

AND IF YOU GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD, AND YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

OK, DONNA THOMAS 4901 AND 1519 BUNKER HILL ROAD.

I AM ON THE LAND ON ONE, THE OPPOSITE SIDE FROM THE DOMAIN AREA.

AND WHAT I'M CONCERNED ABOUT IS THE VARIANCES THAT YOU'VE APPROVED AND OR THAT HE'S REQUESTING.

YOU HAVEN'T APPROVED THEM YET, I GUESS, BUT MAKING THINGS EVEN SMALLER AND TIGHTER.

BUT SO THAT JUST DOESN'T SEEM GOOD.

I MEAN, YOU HAVE RULES YOU'VE MADE PLANS HOW YOU WANT THE CITY TO LOOK AND YOU LET PEOPLE BREAK THEM ALL THE TIME.

SO BUT ONE OF THE THINGS OTHER THINGS THAT BOTHERS ME IS WHAT HE'S PLANNING TO DO ALONG THE SIDE OF MY PROPERTY.

HE'S GOING TO MAKE A CEMENT DITCH BASICALLY AND WITH A RETAINING WALL.

AND I DON'T THINK THAT THAT'S VERY APPEALING VISUALLY AT ALL.

IT WOULD THE WHOLE DEVELOPMENT WILL PROBABLY HURT THE PLANS THAT WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR DEVELOPING MY LAND.

SO JUST THAT WHOLE SIDE IS JUST TOTALLY UNATTRACTIVE AND I DON'T KNOW.

AS FAR AS THE TREES GO, THERE'S A LOT OF TREES HE'S GOING TO TAKE DOWN THAT AREN'T IN A TREE FARM.

THAT, TO ME, ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO THE BEAUTY OF THE LAND.

I'VE LIVED THERE FOR 38 YEARS AND IT'S, YOU KNOW, OF COURSE, VERY DEAR TO ME CONSIDERING THAT.

BUT.

THAT'S BASICALLY ALL I'M REALLY SAYING.

OK, THANK YOU, MA'AM.

I WOULD AND NORMALLY I DON'T KNOW IF I SAID THIS EARLIER.

IF WE SAID THIS EARLIER WE DO GIVE TIME TO THE APPLICANT TO ADDRESS ANY OF THE ISSUES THAT COME UP DURING THE PUBLIC COMMENTS.

IF YOU COULD COME FORWARD, SIR, I BELIEVE I HEARD MS. THOMAS MENTION CONCERN ABOUT THE LOT SIZE AND THE RETAINING WALL ALONG THE ADJACENT PROPERTY.

IF YOU COULD ADDRESS THOSE TWO ITEMS. SURE, SURE.

THE LOT SIZE IS REALLY A PRODUCT OF KIND OF MAKING THE WHOLE THING VIABLE.

IT'S WE TRIED TO GET A MATTER OF A MIX IN THERE, SO IT WASN'T MONOCHROME.

WE ALSO TRIED TO GET FRONT-LOADING REAR LOAD AND ALL THAT.

ALSO, YOU CAN ONLY MITIGATE SO MUCH OF THE FLOODPLAIN AFTER WHICH YOU ACTUALLY CAN'T, YOU KNOW, YOU'LL CAUSE FLOODING DOWNSTREAM OR UPSTREAM FROM THERE.

SO WE'VE DONE WHAT WE CAN WITH THAT.

THAT IS A CERTAIN COST.

AS I MENTIONED, THE HUGE AMOUNT OF DIRT THAT HAS TO BE MOVED AND SO ON LIKE THAT.

THE HOMES, REGARDLESS OF THE LOT SIZE THE HOMES ARE GOING TO BE GOOD WORKFORCE HOUSING.

I THINK WHAT WILL HAD PUT IN HIS REPORT AND WE PUT IN THE APPLICATION SHOWS THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE, YOU KNOW, WELL WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PRICING THAT YOU HAVE OUT THERE.

SO NOW THE MATTER OF THE CONCRETE DITCH CONCRETE SWALE REALLY IS WHAT IT IS, IT'S A NECESSITY.

WE DIDN'T PUT IT THERE BECAUSE WE THOUGHT IT WAS A COOL IDEA.

WHAT ENDS UP HAPPENING IS THE PROPERTY TO OUR NORTH CHOSE NOT TO BE PART OF THE MITIGATION.

THAT'S OK.

THAT'S THEIR DECISION.

WHEN THE WATER THEN COMES UP IN FLOOD STAGE, IT ACTUALLY COMES UP AGAINST OUR MITIGATED AREA WHERE OUR LOTS ARE GOING TO BE.

OUR LOTS WILL BE HIGHER THAN FLOODPLAIN.

THAT'S WHY THERE'S A LITTLE RETAINING WALL ALONG THAT EDGE.

WHEN THE WATER COMES UP ALONG THERE CITY STAFF REQUIRED THAT WE ACTUALLY HAVE A WAY ON OUR PROPERTY TO GO AHEAD AND CONVEY THE NEIGHBOR'S FLOOD WATER BACK DOWN TOWARD THE DEEPER

[02:50:01]

PART OF THE FLOODPLAIN.

IN ORDER THAT IT DOESN'T ERODE AND CAUSE DAMAGE EITHER TO THE NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTY OR TO OUR PROPERTY WE HAVE TO PUT IT IN A IT'S ACTUALLY KIND OF A U-SHAPED CHANNEL.

IT'S WHAT THEY CALL PILOT CHANNEL.

IT'S ABOUT THAT DEEP AND IT'S ABOUT 10 FEET WIDE.

IF AND WHEN THE NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTY DEVELOPS, THAT WILL ALL GO AWAY BECAUSE THAT PROPERTY WILL BE BROUGHT UP OUT OF THE FLOOD PLAIN.

AND THERE WILL BE NO REASON FOR THAT CHANNEL TO BE THERE.

BUT IT'S SERVES A CITY REQUIREMENT.

IT'S A GOOD REQUIREMENT TO GO AHEAD AND BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

THANK YOU.

I THINK THAT WAS.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

WE LIKE TO WAIT TILL YOU'RE JUST ABOUT TO SIT DOWN.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

WHAT IS THE AMOUNT OF THE HOMES THAT YOU'RE BUILDING STARTING THERE? I MEAN, THE PRICE.

PRICE WISE.

RANGING FROM ABOUT 250 TO LOW FIVE HUNDREDS.

YOU KNOW, OF COURSE, BUILDING THAT'S TODAY, YOU KNOW, SO THAT'S AND THE SQUARE FOOTAGE BETWEEN TWO THOUSAND 25 HUNDRED RANGE.

OK, THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

ALL RIGHT.

I'M GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO GET ALMOST TO YOUR SEAT.

I'M WAITING I'M NOT GOING TO SIT DOWN.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? IS THERE ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM? COUNCIL MEMBER BASS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I'D LIKE TO INCLUDE ITEMS H, I AND J TOGETHER, AND I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE.

VERY GOOD.

I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS `TO APPROVE ITEMS 10 H, I AND J, AS PRESENTED WITH A SECOND BY COUNCIL LADY MORRIS.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION.

NOPE, SORRY.

MAYOR PRO TEM HEDRICK, SORRY, I DIDN'T SEE YOU IN THERE.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THERE WAS ONE QUESTION ABOUT THE ADEQUATENESS OF THESE TREES THAT WERE PLACED ALONG THE TRAIL.

DO WE WANT TO ADDRESS THAT IN OUR MOTION? AH VERY GOOD.

YES.

MR. CITY ATTORNEY, IS THERE SOME WAY WE CAN DEFINE IN A QUANTITY.

EVERY SO MANY FEET? I MEAN, I MEAN, THAT'S OUR NORMAL.

YEAH, 1 EVERY.

I MEAN, IS THERE SOME WAY FOR US TO QUANTIFY THAT BENCHES EVERY QUARTER MILE? I DON'T KNOW IF WE WANT TO PUT SOME AMOUNT OF TREES BETWEEN OR.

RIGHT.

VERY GOOD.

THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING THAT.

WE CAN CERTAINLY QUANTIFY IT THROUGH LANGUAGES.

JUST BE A MATTER OF I THINK THE CONVERSATION WAS HAD HERE.

LET'S SEE IF THAT.

I THINK ONE OF THE GOALS IN THAT LANGUAGE WAS TO GIVE PARKS THE ABILITY TO HELP NOT ONLY PICK THE RIGHT SPECIES, BUT THE SPACING OF IT.

SO WE LIKE THE LANGUAGE.

I KNOW IT'S WISHY WASHY, BUT IT WAS KIND OF INTENTIONALLY WISHY WASHY SO THAT WE HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY TO TO DETERMINE THAT.

MR. BRADFORD.

WOULD, AS DETERMINED BY THE CITY'S PARKS DEPARTMENT, BE ACCEPTABLE.

AND I THINK, DO WE HAVE TIME? YES, I DO.

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, I THINK MAYBE BETWEEN NOW AND THE ORDINANCE ADOPTION, WE COULD CLARIFY THAT BETWEEN THE PARKS AND.

EXCELLENT.

YES.

ABSOLUTELY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

AND IS THAT WELL AS IT COMES THROUGH FOR THE ORDINANCE? OK.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE ARE BACK TO MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER BASS, SECOND BY COUNCIL LADY MORRIS TO APPROVE THE THREE ITEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS CASE, AS PRESENTED WITH THE CLARIFICATION THAT WILL OCCUR ON THE TREES AND THE QUANTITIES.

ALL RIGHT.

THAT'S NOT RAMBLING ENOUGH, MADAM SECRETARY.

IF YOU COULD PREPARE THE VOTE, PLEASE.

COUNCIL AND DISPLAY THE VOTE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

COUNCIL, I AM GOING TO GO AHEAD AND SINCE WE DO HAVE ANOTHER CASE COMING, I WANT TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE A QUICK BREAK.

IF WE CAN HAVE EVERYBODY TAKE A QUICK RECESS AND BE BACK HERE AT 10:15, PLEASE.

THANK YOU.

[INAUDIBLE] ALL RIGHT WE ARE COMING BACK FROM RECESS AT THE OCTOBER 12TH 2021 REGULAR MEETING OF THE GARLAND CITY COUNCIL.

WE ARE TO ITEM TEN AND WE ARE ON OUR LAST ZONING CASE THAT ALSO HAS THREE PARTS.

[Items 10K - 10M]

[02:55:05]

ITEM 10 K CONSIDER A ZONING REQUEST BY ALLSTATE TRUCK AND TRAILER REPAIR LLC FOR A TRUCK, BUS STORAGE AND REPAIR USE.

THIS SITE IS LOCATED AT 4030 THROUGH 4040 FOREST LANE IN DISTRICT SIX.

THIS ONE ALSO HAS CONSIDERATION FOR A SPECIFIC USE PROVISION AND A SITE PLAN.

YES SIR MAYOR.

AND HOW MANY TIMES I'VE SAID THAT WORD TONIGHT, YOU WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE ABLE TO JUST COME RIGHT OUT.

THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR A TRUCK AND BUS STORAGE AND REPAIR USE, AND THE LOCATION IS 4030 AND 4040 FOREST LANE.

THE APPLICANT IS ALLSTATE TRUCK AND TRAILER REPAIR LLC.

THE OVERALL ACREAGE OF THE ENTIRE SITE IS JUST OVER FORTY SEVEN ACRES, BUT THE ACTUAL ACREAGE OF THE SUBJECT SITE UNDER SUP AND ZONING CONSIDERATION IS FOUR POINT ELEVEN ACRES.

THAT IS THE LEASE AREA OF ALLSTATE.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE ZONING DISTRICT IS INDUSTRIAL.

HOWEVER, THERE IS A REMNANT OF COMMUNITY RETAIL DISTRICT, WHICH I'LL SHOW HERE IN JUST A MINUTE.

HERE IS THE OVERALL GENERAL LOCATION OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IN WEST GARLAND NEAR FOREST LANE.

AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, I MENTIONED THE OVERALL FORTY SEVEN ACRE SITE, AS IS LOCATED HERE.

THIS IS THE OUTLINE IN RED IS THE LEASE AREA OF ALLSTATE CARRIERS.

SO THAT WOULD BE THE LIMITATIONS OF THE SUP FOR TRUCK REPAIR AND TRUCK STORAGE, WHICH REQUIRE SUPS IN INDUSTRIAL ZONING.

PART OF THE REQUEST MAY BE A LITTLE TOUGH TO SEE COUNCIL BUT IF YOU CAN SEE ON KIND OF THE NORTHWESTERN SIDE OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, A LITTLE RED PIECE THERE, KIND OF BETWEEN THE ZONING LETTERS.

THERE IS A REMNANT OF COMMUNITY RETAIL ZONING THAT REALLY JUST NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP IN THE MAP.

I BELIEVE THAT'S AN OLD REMNANT FROM THE RACETRACK ZONING FROM YEARS AGO.

SO THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT I HAD DISCUSSED WITH THE APPLICANT.

LET'S LET'S CLEAN THAT UP AS PART OF THIS REQUEST.

AND THAT WAY, THE SUPS FOR THE TRUCK USES ARE ALL READY AND CLEAN WITH THE INDUSTRIAL BASE ZONING.

AND THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IDENTIFIES THIS AREA AS INDUSTRY, SO THE ZONING DESIGNATION ALIGNS WITH THAT.

HERE'S SOME PHOTOS OF THE AREA ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE IS THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

VIEWED FROM FOREST LANE LOOKING SOUTH.

THE SUBJECT EXCUSE ME.

THE PHOTO ON THE RIGHT IS LOOKING NORTH ACROSS FOREST LANE, AND THERE'S THE RACETRACK THAT'S ADJACENT TO THE SUBJECT PROPERTY JUST TO THE WEST AND THEN METAL WEST I BELIEVE IT'S CALLED IS THE PROPERTY TO THE EAST OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY ON THE RIGHT HAND PHOTO? HERE'S THE SITE PLAN OUTLINE IN THE RED WITH KIND OF A YELLOW SHADING IS THE ACTUAL SUBJECT AREA FOR THIS USE.

THERE ARE SOME OTHER USES ON THE OVERALL PROPERTY, BUT AGAIN, ALLSTATE WOULD OCCUPY THIS AREA OUTLINED IN RED FOR THE TRUCK REPAIR AND TRUCK STORAGE.

AND THE SITE WOULD BE ACCESSED FROM FOREST LANE.

AND THERE IS SOME EXISTING LANDSCAPING ON THE PROPERTY, BUT THIS PROPOSAL DOES NOT TRIGGER ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING AND SCREENING.

THE APPLICANT REQUEST THE SUP TO BE IN EFFECT FOR A PERIOD OF 20 YEARS, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SUP TIME PERIOD GUIDE FOR THESE USES.

NO GDC DEVIATIONS ARE BEING REQUESTED WITH THIS APPLICATION.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL AS YOU MAY RECALL, THE PREVIOUS ZONING REQUEST FOR THIS SITE WAS DENIED BY CITY COUNCIL AT EARLIER PART OF LAST YEAR, DUE TO SOME TECHNICAL DEFICIENCIES WITH THE APPLICATION THERE WERE A NUMBER OF ISSUES.

THE CR COMMUNITY RETAIL PIECE WAS ONE OF THEM, BUT THERE WERE QUESTIONS ABOUT A DISPATCH USE WHICH WAS NOT PERMITTED IN THE GDC, AMONG OTHER JUST KIND OF SITE PLAN AND SOME UNCERTAINTY ISSUES.

HOWEVER, A NEW APPLICATION WAS GRANTED ALLOWANCE BY CITY COUNCIL TO BE SUBMITTED WITHIN ONE YEAR OF THE GDC REQUIRED WAITING PERIOD FOR DENIED ZONING CASES.

THE APPLICATION WAS RESUBMITTED PER THE CITY'S PRE FILING PROCESS, WHICH ALLOWED FOR SUFFICIENT TIME FOR THE APPLICANT TO WORK WITH STAFF AND ADDRESS THOSE COMMENTS AND GET THIS TO A CLEAN APPLICATION, WHICH IT IS AT THIS POINT, THE USE IS EXISTING ON THE SITE.

HOWEVER, CODE COMPLIANCE HAS BEEN IN DIRECT COMMUNICATION, ONGOING COMMUNICATION WITH THIS APPLICANT AND ALL ISSUES HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED AND THE APPLICATION IS IN ORDER AS SUBMITTED.

SO WITH THAT STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST.

THAT INCLUDES THE CHANGE IN ZONING FOR THE POINT THREE FOUR TWO TWO ACRE TRACT OF

[03:00:05]

LAND FROM COMMUNITY RETAIL TO INDUSTRIAL.

AND THE SUPS FOR TRUCK STORAGE AND TRUCK REPAIR, AS WELL AS THE PLAN AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION, RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AS WELL OF THE REQUEST, AS PRESENTED WITH A SIX TO ONE VOTE AND MAYOR.

WE MAILED OUT ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE NOTIFICATION LETTERS AND WE RECEIVED THREE RESPONSES AND THOSE WERE ALL IN FAVOR OF THE REQUEST.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL CONCLUDE MY PRESENTATION.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA.

THANK YOU, MAYOR.

WILL I WANT TO ADDRESS THIS? IT WAS NOT THE APPLICATION OF THE PEOPLE APPLYING FOR THIS.

IT WAS THE OWNERS OF THE PROPERTY THAT MISS DEALED WITH IT.

BUT THEY DID THE RIGHT THING.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S ALL I WANT TO SAY.

OK.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? I SEE NONE, MADAM SECRETARY.

WE HAVE ONE SPEAKER ON THIS ITEM ROSANNA HUDSON.

VERY GOOD.

YOU CAN TELL SHE'S READY TO GO HOME, SHE'S PRACTICALLY RUNNING DOWN HERE.

[LAUGHTER] MA'AM, IF YOU COULD GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, FOR THE RECORD.

YES SIR.

HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS IF NEED BE.

VERY GOOD.

VERY GOOD.

ANY QUESTIONS? ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT.

I SEE NONE.

THANK YOU, MA'AM.

THANK YOU.

I SEE NONE.

COUNCILMAN VERA.

THANK YOU MAYOR.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

I WANT TO MAKE THE.

IT'S BEEN A LONG NIGHT.

[LAUGHTER] I FULLY UNDERSTAND.

I WANT TO MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS, ACCORDING TO STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS.

THAT WILL INCLUDE ITEMS 10 K, L AND M.

YES, SIR.

ALL THREE OF THEM TOGETHER.

GOOD.

I HAVE A MOTION BY COUNCIL MEMBER VERA TO APPROVE ITEMS 10 K 10 L 10 M AS PRESENTED WITH A SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.

SEEING NO FURTHER DISCUSSION.

MADAM SECRETARY, IF YOU COULD PREPARE THE VOTE FOR US, PLEASE.

COUNCIL AND DISPLAY THE VOTE.

THAT ITEM IS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY.

THANK YOU, MA'AM.

AND NOW THAT WAS OUR LAST ZONING CASE FOR THE EVENING.

THAT BRINGS US TO ITEM 11.

CITIZEN COMMENTS, I DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE ANYONE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK THIS

[11. Citizen comments]

EVENING OR DO WE? MAYOR LEMAY, WE HAVE TWO.

OH, WE DO.

SORRY.

PERSONS SIGNED UP ONE IS VIRTUAL.

GINO ROCK IS WELL HE MAY.

HE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK.

HE'S IN THE AUDIENCE.

OK.

AND ONE VIRTUAL SPEAKER.

VERY GOOD.

VERY GOOD, SIR.

IF YOU COULD COME DOWN, IF YOU COULD GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, FOR THE RECORD, YOU'LL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

I'M SORRY.

LET ME DO THIS.

PERSONS WISHING TO ADDRESS ISSUES NOT ON THE AGENDA MAY HAVE THREE MINUTES TO ADDRESS COUNCIL AT THIS TIME.

COUNCIL IS PROHIBITED FROM DISCUSSING ANY ITEM NOT POSTED, ACCORDING TO THE TEXAS OPEN MEETINGS ACT.

GO AHEAD, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR LETTING ME SPEAK AGAIN.

I'M HERE TO SING THE SAME SONG I DID LAST TIME A MONTH AGO, AND MY NAME IS GINO ROCK.

I LIVE AT 15O1 CEDAR CREST DRIVE GARLAND, TEXAS SEVEN FIVE ZERO FOUR TWO.

LAST TIME I WAS HERE, I WAS CONCERNED WITH GUTTER CLUTTER AND I GOT THREE PHONE CALLS.

I GOT ONE ON WEDNESDAY.

I SAID GREAT.

I'M GOING TO GET SOMETHING DONE.

GOT ONE ON THURSDAY.

GREAT.

SOMETHING'S REALLY GOING TO GET DONE.

GOT ONE ON FRIDAY.

OH MAN, THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

NOTHING HAPPENED.

ALL I GOT WAS LIP SERVICE.

I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THAT.

AND IT'S JUST MY LITTLE THING THAT I HAVE, AND I'M SURE THE COUNCIL HAS THEIR LITTLE BITS OF THING THAT THEY ARE CONCERNED WITH.

AND MINE IS THE STREET CLEANING AND CLUTTER.

ON TANGLEWOOD THERE'S A TRUCK THAT'S BEEN PARKED THERE FOR TWO MONTHS THAT I KNOW OF THAT HAS NOT MOVED.

[03:05:01]

ON TANGLEWOOD THERE'S A HOME THAT HAS COUCHES IN THE DRIVEWAY AND FENCES STACKED UP THAT'S BEEN THERE FOR THREE YEARS THAT I KNOW OF.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CITY IS DOING.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY'RE ENFORCING THESE REGULATIONS OR CODES OR RULES OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL THEM, BUT THEY'RE NOT GETTING DONE, AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOMETHING BE DONE.

FOR ME, IT'S THE GRASS AND THE PEOPLE NOT CLEANING UP THEIR GRASS THAT THEY BLOW OUT ONTO THE STREET.

I SENT A PICTURE TO MY COUNCILMAN WITH NO RESPONSE WITH THE ADDRESS.

NOTHING WAS DONE.

I DIDN'T GET A RESPONSE FROM HIM OR ANYTHING.

THAT WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING WITH ME.

AND THE LAST THING ON STREET CLEANING IS THAT MY COMPLAINT LAST TIME WAS THAT THESE STREET CLEANERS WERE GOING ON THE MAIN THOROUGHFARES CLEANING, AND I WAS RIDING MY BIKE ON GLENBROOK BETWEEN BUCKINGHAM AND WALNUT.

THERE IT WAS STREET CLEANING.

NOT A LEAF AND NOT A GRASS IN SIGHT.

BUT THERE HE WAS.

AND HERE WE ARE IN MY RESIDENTIAL AREA THAT I LIVE AT WITH GRASS IN THE STREET.

DEBRIS IN THE STREET.

AND I DON'T KNOW.

I JUST GET DISAPPOINTED IN IT THAT NOTHING IS BEING DONE.

NO WARNINGS ARE BEING ISSUED.

IT'S JUST DISAPPOINTING FOR ME.

I'M VERY SAD ABOUT THAT.

FOR ME, I DON'T WANT TO BE A CODE ENFORCER.

I DON'T WANT TO BE A MARSHAL.

BUT IF YOU GIVE ME A DOLLAR A YEAR AND GIVE ME SOME CREDENTIALS, I WILL DO THAT FOR YOU.

I'D BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO DO IT.

OK, THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK.

YOU, I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.

AND I BELIEVE WE HAVE A ZOOM SPEAKER.

YES.

JOSHUA GARCIA.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR, AND THANK YOU, COUNCIL.

MY NAME IS JOSH GARCIA, 29 [INAUDIBLE] DRIVE, GARLAND, TEXAS 75043.

TONIGHT COUNCIL, I WOULD LIKE TO ADOPT THE COUNCIL POLICY TONIGHT FOR EARLY POLICY DECISIONS THAT SAYS LABORING OR DELIVERY REWARDS FOR HOSPITALS BECAUSE I KNOW MAYOR LEMAY HAS A LOT OF TITLES FOR BABY PRO TEMS IN THE FUTURE, SO I NEED TO CONGRATULATE HIM FOR THAT.

YOU KNOW, I JUST TURNED TWENTY TWO YEARS OLD YESTERDAY, SO I'M SINGLE, YOU KNOW, ONCE I GET MARRIED OR SOMETHING, AND HOPEFULLY THEY ARE GOING TO GIVE AN AWARD THAT SAYS BABY PRO TEM GARCIA OR WHO KNOWS DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM GARCIA.

SO I DO NEED TO CONGRATULATE THAT, EVEN THOUGH HE NEEDS TO [INAUDIBLE] LIKE A HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR DOING THAT AS WELL.

AND ALSO, YOU KNOW, IF I GET MARRIED, I'LL INVITE ALL OF THE COUNCIL MEMBERS AND WE'LL ALSO HAVE MAYOR LEMAY PLAY THE BONGOS FOR THE CONCERT.

AND SO IT'LL BE REALLY AMAZING.

BUT, YOU KNOW, AND IT'S REALLY FANTASTIC FOR THAT.

AND NUMBER TWO, I NEED TO CONGRATULATE TO MY UNCLE JEB BASS.

I MEAN, HE'S REALLY NOT MY UNCLE.

THE REASON I SAY THIS BECAUSE I KNOW HIM FOR A WHILE AND FOR CONGRATULATING HIM, FOR SAYING THAT THE BUDGET LANGUAGE FOR MR. BRADFORD, I'M SURE HE WAS REALLY HAPPY FOR HIM.

I THINK HE SHOULD REALLY GIVE HIM ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THAT, SO I NEED TO CONGRATULATE HIM FOR THAT.

AND THAT SAID, MR. MAYOR CONTINUE TO BE THE BEST MAYOR FOR GARLAND AND KEEP LOOKING VERY PROFESSIONAL AND KEEP GETTING YOUR HAIRCUT AT GREAT CLIPS, SIR.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SIR.

MADAM SECRETARY, DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER SPEAKERS? WE DO NOT.

THANK YOU.

WITH THAT COUNCIL AT 10:30, WE ARE ADJOURNED.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.
