[3A. Discuss Site Plan and Phase One Design for Lakefront at Pecan Grove Park. (45 minutes)]

>> WE WILL START 3 DISCUSS SITE PLAN AND PHASE 1 TO SIGN FOR LAKEFRONT AT PEACOCK GROVE PARK. I ASSUME THAT IS YOU MISS ANGIE OR AARON OR BOTH?

>> I'M GOING TO ACTUALLY HAND IT OFF, FIRST I'M A NEGATIVE DIRECTION DIRECTOR ERIC CLAYBURGH. BEFORE ASKING TO KICK OFF HIS FIRST CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM.

>> NO PRESSURE AARON. >> NONE, NONE WHATSOEVER RIGHT? LOOKS IS PRESENTED IN FRONT OF COUNSEL BEFORE. REMEMBER IT. IT WAS A VERY MEMORABLE EVENT.

>> BEFORE WE GET STARTED CAN WE DO SOME HOUSEKEEPING AND ASK THOSE WHO ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH THIS PARTICULAR ITEM TO PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR SOUND AND YOUR VIDEO AND WHEN YOUR ITEM COMES UP YOU MAY THEN LOG IN AGAIN SO WE APPRECIATE THAT. THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT, ARE WE READY? >> GO FOR ERIC. >> HELLO EVERYBODY, MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL. ON BEHALF OF THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT WERE EXCITED TO PRESENT A PROPOSAL, THE PROPOSED SITE PLAN FOR THE LAKEFRONT OF PECAN GROVE PARK.

JUST A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY. WE BEGAN OUR ADVENTURE IN AUGUST WITH THE SITE VISIT AND WE INCLUDED IT FROM THE GET GO, KEY PLAYERS SUCHAS MEMBERS FROM STUDIO OUTSIDE, THE RELEVANT ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT AND PARKS OBVIOUSLY JUST TO GET THINGS MOVING.

HE FIGURED BY KEEPING ALL OF THESE KEY PLAYERS INVOLVED FROM THE GET-GO AND SIMPLIFY THE PROCESS AND HAS MADE THINGS SO MUCH SMOOTHER AND EASIER. UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO COVID-19 WE HAD TO CHANGE THINGS UP AT POSTERIOR PUBLIC MEETINGS VIRTUALLY BUT, AS A RESULT WE HAD OVER 90 RESPONSES AND COMMENTS THROUGHOUT THE 10 DAYS, 14 DAYS, HOWEVER WE LEFT IT PUBLISHED. GREAT THING ABOUT IT WAS THE SURVEYS THEY COMPLETED AND THE FEEDBACK WE GOT FROM THEM WAS VALUABLE AND LED US IN THE DIRECTION WE CAME TO TONIGHT.

ALL OF THOSE COMMENTS AND ALL OF THE SURVEYS AND SUCH WERE SUBMITTED AND SUMMARIZED AND PRESENTED BY THE PARKS ADVISORY BOARD IN NOVEMBER WHICH ANDREW WILL GO OVER THE TIMELINE IN A MINUTE. WERE EXCITED AS FAR AS DEPARTMENT GOES.

THIS IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING UNIQUE. BECAUSE IT'S JUST ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO ACCOMPLISH ONE OF OUR DEPARTMENT STRATEGIC INITIATIVES WHICH HAS PROVIDING LIKE ACCESS. WE ALSO MUST MENTION IF YOU DON'T KNOW, THE PARKLAND SITS ON THE RECOGNIZED TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE PADDLING TRAIL.

HICH WILL PROVIDE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE TO PADDLE FROM PADDLE POINT PARK OVER TO

[00:05:01]

LAKEFRONT AT PECAN GROVE. AS FAR AS FUNDING GOES JUST TO TOUCH ON THAT FOR A MINUTE.

THIS PROJECT CAME FROM THE 2018 BOND ELECTION. IT PROVIDED US WITH ABOUT INITIAL $400,000 WHICH AFTER THE INITIAL DESIGN WE HAVE ABOUT $344,000 TO TRY TO COMPLETE PHASE 1. THE GOOD THING IS THAT WE APPLIED FOR A LOCAL GROUND WITH IT TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE FOR A MATCHING GRANT OF 400,000 TO HELP US OUT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT. TONIGHT, ANDREW, I DON'T KNOW IF MARK IS WITH US AS WELL.

THEY WILL PROVIDE YOU GUYS A GLIMPSE INTO THE OVERALL SITE PLAN FOR THE SITE AS WELL AS A SNAPSHOT OF WHAT PHASE I COULD INCLUDE. WHAT WERE LOOKING FOR TONIGHT FROM CITY COUNCIL'S CONSENSUS ON THE OVERALL MASTER PLAN AS WELL AS THE PHASE I PROPOSAL.

SO, WITHOUT ME CONTINUING TO RAMBLE I WILL TURN IT OVER TO ANDREW DUGAN.

FROM STUDIO OUTSIDE WHO WILL BE LEADING THE PRESENTATION. AT THE END OF THE PRESENTATION WE WILL HAVE TIMES FOR QUESTIONS AND DISCUSSION. ANDREW, IT'S ALL YOURS.

>> THANK YOU AARON. WE APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE HERE TONIGHT TO VISIT WITH YOU ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT PARK ON THE LAKEFRONT. AS AARON MENTIONED, I AM WITH STUDIO OUTSIDE WHERE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE FIRM LOCATED IN DALLAS.

OPEN SPACE, NATURAL SPACES, PARKS AND SPECIFIC DESTINATION IS 1/4 OF OUR BUSINESS AND PRACTICE THAT WE HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO WORK ON A NUMBER OF SITES AROUND METROPLEX IS AS WELL AROUND THE STATE AND BEYOND. PARKS LIKE THIS WHO ARE CREATED AT IMPACT FOR THE COMMUNITY THEY SERVE REALLY GET AS EXCITED AND HAPPY TO BE HERE.

HE MIGHT FLIP TO THE NEXT 2 SLIDES OF THE SCHEDULE WOULD BE GREAT.

THANK YOU. WE START THIS PROJECT BACK IN SEPTEMBER AS AARON MENTIONED WE MET UP ON THE LEG TWICE I BELIEVE TO LOOK AT THE SITE WITH SEVERAL UNDER THE VISUALS WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS IN ADDITION TO THE CITY OF DALLAS TO UNDERSTAND THE LAKE EDGES AND FIGURE OUT OUR COMMITMENTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO THAT. IN OCTOBER TO WHICH OF THE COMMUNITY INPUT AND ONLINE SURVEY. PART 4 WAS IN NOVEMBER.

WE ARE HERE TONIGHT WITH YOU COUNSEL. HOPEFULLY RIGHT AFTER THE HOLIDAYS WE WILL BE ABLE TO START DIGGING INTO DOCUMENTATION FOR PHASE 1 WITH AN ULTIMATE APPROACH TO HOPEFULLY BIDDING AND STARTING THE PROJECT MIDWAY THROUGH NEXT YEAR. IF THE GRANT COMES AND THAT WILL AFFECT THIS BUDGET I'M SORRY IT WILL AFFECT THE SCHEDULE AND THE BUDGET OF COURSE.

IT WILL PASS THE TIME FOR THE GRANT FUNDS ARE ACTUALLY AVAILABLE.

WILL DEAL WITH THAT LATER. OKAY, NEXT SLIDE. SO, WERE GONNA TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT EXISTING CONDITIONS AS WE GO THROUGH OUR SLIDES. THE GO THROUGH PRETTY QUICKLY.

WE SIT RIGHT HERE ON THIS WESTERN SIDE OF THE INLET ON LAKE GRAY HUBBARD ON THE STREET FROM THE SCHOOL. AND COMMUNITY CENTER. NEXT.

YOU CAN SEE THAT IT'S A SIZABLE PIECE OF PROPERTY ACTUALLY AT THE END OF THE ROAD THAT IS SANDWICHED BETWEEN THE RAILROAD AND THE LAKE ITSELF. IT CLAIMS A PRETTY BIG LAKE ALONG THERE. PRETTY DIFFERENT THAN PADDLE POINT PARK.

THE SIZE HAS A LOT OPPORTUNITY FOR A LOT OF GREAT VIEWS TO THE NORTH, WEST AND SOUTH OF THE LAKE. HOPEFULLY THIS PLAN WILL CAPITALIZE ON THAT IN A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT WAYS. THE CONDITIONS OUT THERE YOU CAN SEE THE RAILROAD ON THE BOTTOM SIDE WHICH IS THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE SITE. THERE'S A FENCED SOCCER FIELD, PARKING LOT THAT IS SERVED AND USED FOR ¦ THERE'S A VARIETY OF TREES THAT BUFFERS THE RAILROAD SO IT'S NOT REALLY DOMINANT IT'S MORE OF A NEUTRAL BACKGROUND AND FOCUSES YOUR VIEWS OFF TOWARDS THE WATER. THIS NEXT 2 OR 3 SLIDESHOW THE EXISTING CONDITIONS.

YOU CAN SEE HOW THE ROADWAY CURVES AND BROKEN DOWN OVER THE YEARS AND THE BOLLARDS THAT ARE THERE KIND OF A GRAVEL PARKING ON. IT'S TIME FOR SOME REFRESHMENT.

THE SHORELINE EDGE IS HOLDING TOGETHER FAIRLY WELL. THERE IS SOME AREAS THAT WE ARE PROPOSING SOME RESTORATION AND STABLE RESTORATION STATION THROUGH THE CITY OF ALLISON'S REQUIREMENTS FOR THE LAKE OF WATER'S EDGE ITSELF. YOU CAN SEE THE VARIETY OF

[00:10:01]

VEGETATION HERE ALONG THAT EDGE AND THEN THE BOLLARDS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN SOME YEARS AGO.

THE SPINAL PICTURE SHOWS A FENCED IN SOCCER FIELD AT SOME OF THE RESIDENTS OFF TO THE NORTH AND THE DIRT ROAD THAT MEANDERS THROUGH SOME OF THE PROPERTY.

SO, AS WE LOOK AHEAD TO WHAT THIS MASTER PLAN MIGHT BE WE START TO THINK ABOUT HOW TO DIRECT THOSE VIEWS AND CAPITALIZE ON THE VIEWS AND UNDO DESTINATION.

MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE SOCCER FIELD HAS BEEN USED FOR PRACTICE AND THINGS LIKE THAT OVER THE YEARS BUT THE ULTIMATE OPPORTUNITY HERE IS LAKEFRONT DESTINATION IS PRETTY FAST.

WE HAVE A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES TO TALK ABOUT. THIS TALKS ABOUT THE MASTER PLAN CONCEPT WE HAVE IN PLACE. THERE'S ONLY ONE ACCESS POINT BELOW THE ACS RAILROAD BRIDGE ON THE NORTH END.HAT YELLOW DOT ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN.HAT'S THE ONLY PEDESTRIAN ACCESS TO THE SLIVER OF LAND.

WITH THAT AS A STARTING POINT THE PROPOSAL HERE IS TO RUN A ROAD, THE REDLINE GOING OFF TO THE SOUTH AS A LOOP ROAD IF YOU WILL DOWN THERE ON THE END TO OPEN UP PARKING SPACES THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SEE THE DIFFERENT AREAS OF PROGRAM WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.

THE YELLOW WOULD BE THE QUICK IN AND OUT FOR A KAYAK LAUNCH OR A CONCESSIONAIRE OR SOMEONE THAT'S GLINTING KAYAKS WHERE YOU CAN DROP THEM OFF AND LEAVE.

OR IF YOU'RE PEDDLING IT FROM PADDLE PARK ARE GOING TO PADDLE POINT PARK.

YOU HAVE EASY DROP-OFF ON THE WATER'S EDGE AND YOU WOULD COE BACK AND PARKED SOMEWHERE AROUND THIS REDLINE WILL YOU SEE THE PARKING SPACES TURNED OFF THERE.

OFF TO THE SIDE.HESE NEXT SERIES OF SLIDES STARTS TO TALK ABOUT OTHER EXPERIENCES YOU MIGHT HAVE A LONG THIS LINEAR PARKWAY. WHILE THE VEHICULAR CIRCULATION WAS KIND OF KNEE INJURY AND MOVED AGAINST THE EXISTING ROAD.

WE TRY TO MAXIMIZE THE PEDESTRIAN SPACE BETWEEN THE ROAD AND THE WATER'S EDGE ITSELF RATHER THAN PUTTING PARKING OUT CLOSE TO THE WATER'S EDGE.

WE WANTED TO CAPITALIZE ON THAT STRIP OF LAND FOR THE MAXIMUM PEDESTRIAN ENVIRONMENT AS POSSIBLE. THE YELLOW LINES DEPICT A DEPARTURE FROM THAT SOFTER GEOMETRY OF THE KNEE ENTERING ROADWAY TO A LITTLE BIT MORE ARCHITECTURAL GEOMETRY TO THE SYSTEM OF BOARDWALKS, PEDESTRIAN PATHWAYS AND CREATE A SENSE OF CONTRAST IN THOSE UNDULATING MOVEMENTS AND ALLOW FOR SOME GREAT VIEWS OFF OF THESE BOARDWALKS WITH EVERYTHING POINTING OUT TOWARDS THE WATER AND TOWARDS OTHER DESTINATIONS ON THE LAKE.

YOU CAN SEE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN THAT YELLOW LINE PICKS UP AT THE KAYAK LAUNCH.

YOUR C AND D. THEN THAT COMES OUT TO AN OVERLOOK NEAR B WHICH IS A DECK EXTENSION OUT OVER THE WATER. SEE THERE ON THE LEFT IS THE KAYAK LAUNCH ITSELF WHICH WE WILL LOOK AT A POTENTIAL PICTURE AT A SLIDE OR 2. THE SHORELINE SLICES ACROSS AND BACK OUT TO THE WATER TOWARDS THE FISHING AREAS BETWEEN LETTERS A AND K WHERE THERE ARE SOME WIDER BOARDWALK EXTENSIONS THAT ALLOW FORECASTING FISHING POLES AND WHATNOT OFF THOSE EDGES AND GETS YOU OUT TO THE WATER OUT OVER IT. THEN ON THE SOUTH END OVER BY LETTER A ON THE FAR END AS WELL KIND OF THAT EXTENSION AND FISHING PIER OUT TOWARDS THE WATER. ALL OF THESE FROM A PEDESTRIAN STANDPOINT OR FISHING HAS A LOT OF GREAT VIEWS OUT ON THE WATER AND ENCOURAGE VISITORS TO GET OUT ACROSS THE WHOLE LAKE WHERE PREVIOUSLY IT'S PRETTY MUCH BEEN CLUSTERED ONLY ON THE NORTH END ONLY.

THE NEXT SLIDE CONTINUES TO BUILD ON THIS FORMAT. THE IDE OF A KAYAK LAUNCH DUE TO BUDGET REGIONS WERE TRYING TO DO A LOWER IMPACT OF COST-EFFECTIVENESS APPROACH.

THE IDEA IS WE CREATE SOME KIND OF VERTICAL ELEMENT THAT CAN BE SEEN FROM OUT ON THE WATER.

SO YOU SEE THE DESTINATION. IMAGINE YOURSELF PUTTING IN A KAYAK AT PADDLE POINT PARK AND YOU'RE OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAKE AND YOU'RE LOOKING AT WHERE EXACTLY AM I GOING.

YET THE TOTEM ELEMENT THAT POPS UP PERHAPS WAS A SMALL LIGHT ON IT OR PAINTED A DIFFERENT COLOR. YOU HAVE A TARGET TO WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO.

WHERE YOU CAN PULL OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE. I THINK THAT WILL START TO

[00:15:02]

LIVEN UP AND CELEBRATE THE CONSTELLATION OF DIFFERENT DESTINATIONS AROUND THE LAKESHORE AS OF LATE CONTINUES TO BE HAVE OTHER DESTINATIONS ON IT.

TO REALLY CELEBRATE THE LAKE AS IT IT'S A MAIN ASSET FOR THE CITY.

BETWEEN THE KAYAK LAUNCH AND THE MAIN PARKING LOT HERE LETTERS G AND F START TO CREATE A KNEE ENTERING KIND OF LAWN THAT WILL ALLOW FOR PICNICKING, KITE FLYING, PITCH AND CATCH WITH FAMILIES AND STUFF LIKE THAT. WE'VE DOUBTED IT WITH SOME TREES THAT ALLOWS FOR A PARK ENVIRONMENT. THE PICNIC SHELTERS WOULD HAVE GOOD VIEWS OFF TO THE LAKE AND SHADE UNDER THOSE TREES AND WHATNOT.HIS IS THE OLD SOCCER FIELD SO ALL THE TREES WERE TALKING ABOUT WOULD BE NEW TREES OVER TIME.

IT WILL START TO CREATE THIS FABRIC OF OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES THAT GOES WITH THIS PARKING LOT AND WE CONTINUE TO BUILD AS WE MOVE FURTHER SOUTH ALONG THE LAKEWAY.

HERE ON THE BOEING OUT FOR THE LANDFORM AND LETTERS I AND J ARE PROPOSING A CIVIC SANDBOX IF YOU WILL OR A SANDY ELEVATED BEACH THAT'S UP ABOVE THE WATER.

IT'S INTENTIONALLY DOES NOT ENGAGE THE WATER WE NEED TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT.

WE KNOW ABOUT THE RULES OF SWIMMING OF ENGAGING WITH THE WATER'S EDGE.

THE IDEA IS WE NEED TO WORK WITH SOME HARDSCAPE ELEMENTS FOR EROSION CONTROL ALONG J.

THAT PROVIDES OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO BUILD A LITTLE SHELF THAT WOULD HAVE THIS SUNTANNING SANDY BEACH AREA THAT YOU COULD HAVE SAND VOLLEYBALL ON. PEOPLE CAN BUILD SAND CASTLES.

YOU COULD HAVE THESE OTHER ELEMENTS THAT ARE ELEVATED ABOVE THE WATER BUT REALLY WE THINK COULD BE UNIQUE AS AMONGST THE CITY PARK AND OTHER PARKS IN THE CITY TO CREATE THIS INTERESTING ATMOSPHERE ON THE WATER'S EDGE. AN ELEMENT IF YOU MIGHT RECALL THAT A COUPLE SLIDES BACK WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE VERTICAL ELEMENT THAT CYLINDRICAL TOTEM THAT WOULD BE THAT MICON APPEARED MIGHT LOOK TO INTEGRATE SOME OF THOSE VERTICAL ELEMENTS AT SMALLER HEIGHTS EITHER TO CREATE BUILT-IN SEATING OR OTHER ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS WITHIN THIS BEACH AREA OR ALONG ITS EDGE.

POTENTIALLY ENGAGING WITH THE EROSION CONTROL ISSUE SO IT BECOMES THIS ELEMENT OF REPEATED FORMS, THESE VERTICAL POWER LONGS AT DIFFERENT HEIGHTS THAT CAN CREATE BUILT-IN FURNISHINGS AND REINFORCE A VOCABULARY OF HARDSCAPE ELEMENTS OUT HERE ALONG THE WATER'S EDGE. THE NEXT SLIDE TALKS ABOUT SOME OF THE OTHER AMENITIES WE MAY CONSIDER. I THINK WE FULLY ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT THE KIDS KINGDOM AND SOME OF THE OTHER PARK ELEMENTS THAT ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE REBEL TRACKS AROUND THE CIVIC CENTER HAVE ALREADY HAD A HIGH LEVEL OF INVESTMENT AND SUCCESS.

OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO BUILD ON THOSE STORYLINES WITH BUT DIFFERENTIATE FROM THEM IN SOME WAY. I THINK THIS PARK BEING CLOSE TO THE WATER OFFERS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT TYPE OF AESTHETIC OR PROGRAMMING FOR THOSE THAT MIGHT BE DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE TYPES OF PLAYGROUNDS THAT MIGHT BE UP CLOSER TO THE COMMUNITY CENTER.OR EXAMPLE, THE DARK BLUE CIRCLE IN THE MIDDLE, M, WE THINK WE MIGHT BE MORE ADVENTURE THEMED PROGRAM. COULD BE CONTEMPORARY NATURE PERHAPS OR HAVE SOME OTHER ELEMENTS THAT CELEBRATE THE WATERS AND OR BEATS OR BOATS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

ALL THAT NEEDS TO SIGN AND THOUGHT. IT WOULD BE AN ANCHOR OR PLAYGROUND THAT WOULD BE DISTINCT FROM OTHERS IN THE CITY.

ON THE FAR SOUTHERN POINT IF YOU CAN IMAGINE GOING DOWN THIS ROAD AND PARKING TOWN AT THE END GETTING FURTHER AND FURTHER INTO THE PARK NOW THE SOUTHERN POINT WE SUGGEST THE IDEA OF A NATURE THEMED PLAYGROUND THAT MIGHT SPAWN FROM SOME OF THE WILDLIFE IN THE AREA AND MAY HAVE MORE MOBILE ALL PARTS OR OTHER ASPECTS THAT WOULD BE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SITES.

IT COULD HAVE ELEMENTS WHERE KIDS CAN BUILD, THEY COULD DIG IN THE GROUND OR DO OTHER THINGS LIKE THAT. AMONGST THE NATURAL SETTING ALWAYS BEING INFLUENCED BY THE PROXIMITY TO THE WATER AND TO USE HER IMAGINATION. THESE PLAYGROUNDS WE THINK AND OTHER PARKS NESTLED IN THE ARRAY OF CLAIM ON THIS AND NATURAL VEGETATION TO CREATE

[00:20:09]

THIS LINEAR COMPOSITION OF SOFT FORMS FOR THE VEHICLES AND MORE STRAIGHT FORMS FOR THESE BOARDWALKS. THE RE-NATURALIZATION OF THE SITE IS SOMETHING I HAVEN'T TOUCHED ON YET. I THINK THE SOCCER FIELD AT SOME THESE OTHER FLAT AREAS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE SOME FLAT PLAY AREAS THAT ARE CERTAINLY NEEDED BUT, ALSO ALLOW FOR US TO BRING IN SOME MORE NATURAL PLANTINGS AS WE TRY TO TRANSITION CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE WATER. WE COULD USE PRAIRIE GRASSES OR REFORESTATION EFFORT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT WHERE WE START TO SIGNIFY THIS AS A NATURE-BASED EXPERIENCE THAT IS PASSIVE RECREATION BUT, ORIENTED TOWARDS THE WATER AND YOU FEEL THE SENSE OF EMERGENT AS YOU WALK OUT ON THIS MUCH GREATER EXPANSION OF THE LAKE ITSELF.

WE WANT TO PICK APART THAT AND PLAY WITH THOSE THEMES AS THE DESIGN EVENTUALLY COMES TO FRUITION. I THINK THE NEXT SLIDE TALKS ABOUT MAY BE FOR PHASE 1. AS I MENTIONED WE HAVE A FAIRLY LIMITED BUDGET FOR PHASE 1. WANT TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE IT IMPACTFUL SO INSTEAD OF TRYING TO SPREAD THOSE LIMITED FUNDS ACROSS A LARGE AREA WE WOULD PROPOSE TO TRY TO DELIVER ON THE HIGHEST AND BEST SUGGESTIONS AND REQUEST FROM THE PUBLIC AND ALSO OPENING UP A NEW PROGRAM TO THE SITE THAT IS NOT BEEN THERE PREVIOUSLY.

NAMELY A KAYAK LAUNCH. THAT'S THE NAME OF THE GAME. GETTING ACCESS TO THE WATER ITSELF IS A MAJOR ATTRACTOR AND MAJOR DESTINATION. THEN START TO BUILD A FRAMEWORK THAT CAN BE BUILT UPON FOR THOSE FUTURE PHASES. WE WOULD SUGGEST IF WE HAD A LITTLE BIT MORE MONEY WE WOULD LOVE TO REBUILD AS MUCH OF MAIN STREET AS WE CAN.

IT IS IN A STATE OF DETERIORATION UNDER THE RAILROAD BRIDGE.

WE CAN STRETCH THE BUDGET AS MUCH AS WE CAN AND TRY TO BUILD C WHICH IS HARD CONCRETE OF A NEW DRIVE THAT STARTS TO SET UP THAT ANDROID MOVEMENT. THEN SOME PARKING SPACES TO THE LAKE SIDE OF THAT AND TO THE REVERENT SIDE OF THAT WHICH IS D. THOSE MIGHT BE GRAVEL PARKING SPACES TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF CONCRETE AND START TO GIVE THE IDEA OF HAY, WHERE A SOFTER ENVIRONMENT. WE COULD HAVE THE KAYAK LAUNCH THAT WILL CIRCLE AND BE A DROP-OFF THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO TAKE THE PYREX OFF YOUR CAR OR TRAILER AND TURN AROUND AND THEN GO PART.RYING TO KEEP PARKING ON THEIR BIGGER ROAD IF YOU WILL.

CLOSER TO THE RAILROAD SO WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF CARS OUT CLOSE TO THE WATER'S EDGE.

THE MORE HOPING WE CAN HAVE SEVERAL PICNIC SHELTERS START JUST THE FRAMEWORK OF SIMILAR SIDEWALKS HOPEFULLY THAT VERTICAL TOTEM FEATURE. I THINK THE ULTIMATELY PHASE 1 WOULD DELIVER KAYAK LAUNCH UPDATED PARKING AND PICNIC SHELTERS THAT REALLY START TO CREATE THE SENSE OF A NEW DESTINATION AND FUTURE PHASES WILL HELP ROUND OUT.

. >> THE NEXT SLIDE IS OUR SUMMARY.

THE PUBLIC INPUT ON THE ONLINE SURVEY AARON MENTIONED. TRAILERS WERE A NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. PURSUE THAT ON EVERY PROJECT. THERE'S A NEED FOR TRIALS IN EVERY MINISTER POLITY. YOU CAN NEVER BUILD ENOUGH. THE MASTER PLAN SHOWS A VARIETY OF TRAIL TYPES. THE PHASE 1 WE WOULD LOVE TO DELIVER SOME MORE TRAILS.

MAYBE THOSE START OUT AS MONA TRAILS AT THE BEGINNING PERHAPS AND THEN THOSE CAN BE CONTINUALLY ADDED ONTO. THE KAYAK LAUNCH THAT'S EAGHT A THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR IN THE PUBLIC INPUT. THEN, III HIGHEST WRITING, MANY OF THE QUESTIONNAIRES YOU GUYS PROBABLY TOOK WAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO WRITE IN YOUR OWN IDEAS OF THE PARK.

IT'S A RESTROOM. THAT'S ALSO SOMETHING WE ALWAYS SEE.

UTILITIES AND EVERYTHING ARE NOT THERE AT THE SITE. IT WOULD BE VERY EXPENSIVE TO PUT IN A PERMANENT RESTROOM THERE. WE JUST BRING THAT UP SO EVERYONE IS AWARE OF IT AND MAY BE A FUTURE PHASE CAN TAKE THAT ON.

THE OTHER GENERAL COMMENTS WE KNOW PRETTY MUCH POSITIVE SUPPORT FOR THIS PROPOSED CONCEPT. THERE WAS DISCUSSION ABOUT DO WE NEED ANOTHER PLAYGROUND OR NOT GIVEN THE PROXIMITY TO CAKES KINGDOM. THE SUPPORT FOR NATURE-BASED ACTIVITIES IN GENERAL, A VARIETY OF WRITE IN SUGGESTIONS FOR OTHER AMENITIES, SPRAY

[00:25:08]

PARKS, SOCCER FIELDS, BIKE TRAILS, OTHER THINGS. I WOULDN'T SAY THERE WAS ANY WAVE OF ANY PARTICULAR THING. THAT WE HAVEN'T ADDRESSED HERE BUT WOULD LIKE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THERE ARE OTHER SUGGESTIONS PEOPLE HAD WRITTEN IN.

THEY DEFINITELY HAVE SUPPORT FOR SEPARATION OF FISHING VERSUS KAYAKING.

THAT MAKES TOTAL SENSE TO US AND THAT'S WHY WE'VE STARTED TO SEPARATE THOSE OUT THE MASTER PLAN A LITTLE BIT. AS IT COMES TO FRUITION WE COULD EVALUATE THAT FURTHER.

SOME CONCERN ABOUT CREATING A LAKESIDE PARTY ATMOSPHERE. I THINK THAT CAN BE ADDRESSED THROUGH SMART DESIGN AND HAPPY PEOPLE DOWN THERE SELF POLICING IN SOME WAYS AS FAR AS THE USES. AND SOME SUPPORT FOR VOLLEYBALL, SOME YEAS AND SOME DAYS FOR VOLLEYBALL. TYING BACK TO THAT PARTY ATMOSPHERE KIND OF THING.

WERE NOT SURE ABOUT VOLLEYBALL AT THE MOMENT AS AN PERMANENT THING.

>> THE PARK MEETING WENT VERY WELL. BEEN A LOT OF SUPPORT FOR THE PRIMARY PROGRAMS OF PARKING, BOARDWALK TRAILS A KAYAK LAUNCHES.

I THINK PHASE 1 AND ALSO THE MASTER PLAN WE DELIVERED ON THOSE.

TONIGHT WERE HERE FOR YOUR COMMENTS. WE LOOK FORWARD TO THAT.HE NEXT SLIDE IS A SUMMARY AS WELL I BELIEVE FOR DISCUSSION. I'M HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE OR AARON, IF THERE'S SOMETHING I MISS LET ME KNOW.

>> ANDREW, THANK YOU SO MUCH. THERE WAS A GREAT PRESENTATION. CAN WE PULL THE PRESENTATION DOWN? THANK YOU. SO, COUNSEL, COMMENTS,

QUESTIONS, BROWN YOU HAVE YOUR HAND UP. >> ON YOUR PICTURES OF THE LAYOUT I DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN GO BACK TO OR NOT. IT'S IN THE UPPER LEFT-HAND CORNER OF ALL OF THE PICTURES. THERE IS A PEER, IS THAT SOMEONE'S PERSONAL PEER? SET OUTSIDE OF THIS PROJECT? > YES SIR, I HAVE A HARD COPY HERE I'M LOOKING AT IT.

IT IS A PRIVATE PEER TO THE NORTH OF THE PROPERTY LINE. >> OKAY, THIS THANK >> JUST A BRIEF COMMENT. FIND THIS PLAN VERY ATTRACTIVE. I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED THAT WE MAY BE IMAGINING A TAJ MAHAL OF THE PARK WHEN IT'S SO CLOSE TO HER BIRTH PARK.

I PERSONALLY WOULD MAYBE RATHER SEE THIS PARK, WITH A NEW PARKING LOT.

THE TRAIL SYSTEM AND A KAYAK LAUNCH AND THEN INVEST MORE INTO HER BIRTH PARK FOR THAT NICE PREMIUM FUEL. THOSE ARE JUST MY INITIAL THOUGHTS.

OTHERWISE I REALLY DO LIKE THE DESIGN AND THE THOUGHTS BEHIND THE PARK AND USE.

>> WHERE IS IT SPECIFICALLY THAT YOU THINK THEY'VE GONE OVER WHERE THEY MAY BE SHOWN TO

HAVE? >> THE BOARDWALK IS GOING TO BE A VERY EXPENSIVE INVESTMENT.

I NOTE THIS IS A MULTI PHASE PROJECT. THE PLAYGROUND SYSTEM AND SOME OF THOSE LANDSCAPING AREAS MAY BE INVESTMENT LIKE THAT CAN BE PUT TOWARD HER BIRTH MORE RELEVANT HERE. ALTHOUGH AGAIN I DO LIKE THE DESIGN BUT, THOSE ARE JUST MY

INITIAL THOUGHTS. >> OKAY. >> I WANT TO SAY CONGRATULATIONS ON THE GRANT THAT YOU GOT FROM TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE.

>> NO, THEY JUST APPLIED FOR. >> OH I'M SORRY, I THOUGHT YOU RECEIVED THE GRANT.

IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU GOT THE GRANT IT WOULD BE OF BOOST. >> THE PACKET SO THEY WOULD

KNOW UNTIL JUNE OR JULY IF I'M REMEMBERING CORRECTLY. >> I'M SORRY, I MISSED THAT.

BUT, I'M EXCITED THAT YOU ARE APPLYING FOR THE TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE GRANTS.

I THINK WE HAVE A GOOD SHOT AT GETTING IT. I'M REALLY EXCITED TO HAVE THIS AREA PROGRAM. IT'S BEEN SITTING THERE REALLY NOT VERY WELL UTILIZED FOR

[00:30:06]

MANY, MANY YEARS. MY GRANDDAUGHTER PLAYED SOCCER DOWN THERE AND I'LL TELL YOU THAT YOU COULD TAKE OUT THE WHOLE BOTTOM END OF YOUR CAR JUST TRYING TO GET INTO THAT PARKING LOT. SO, I'M REALLY HAPPY TO SEE. WE DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF LAKEFRONT WE CAN ACTUALLY PROGRAM. TO YOUR POINT BLAKE, I THINK THE FACT THAT THIS IS A BOARDWALK ON THE WATER THAT WE HAVE LOTS OF OPPORTUNITIES TO ENGAGE WITH THE WATER IN THIS PARK AS OPPOSED TO HER BIRTH PARK.

IT MAKES ME EXCITED ABOUT DOING IT AND DOING IT RIGHT. EVEN IF WE HAVE TO DO IT IN

PHASES. SO, THOSE ARE MY COMMENTS. >> OKAY, MATT?

>> I AGREE HUNDRED PERCENT MARTHA AND I ALMOST WRITTEN THE BOTTOM OF MY CAR TRYING TO GET INTO THE PARK. SUCH AN ASSET TO THE CITY. I COMMEND ANDREW YOU AND YOUR TEAM FOR WHAT YOU DID THERE AND TAKING IN THE FEEDBACK. THAT PARK SPELLS OUT WHAT IS IN THE CITY'S STRATEGIC PLAN FOR RELATIVE ON THE WATER AND ON THE MOVE.

EVERYBODY SAYS WE GOTTA CONNECT WITH THE WATER BECAUSE WE HAVE ALL THE SLICK FRONT AND THAT DOES NOT. IT DOESN'T IN EVERY WAY. IT'S JUST FANTASTIC.

YES, PEERS ARE REALLY EXPENSIVE TO BUILD. I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND IT.

YOU HAVE GOT LITTLE BEACH AREA AND YOU HAVE THOSE BOARDWALKS. YOU WILL DRAW PEOPLE FROM ROCKWALL FROM GARLAND, FROM SEXY DOWN THERE. JUST TO UTILIZE THAT SPACE.

I THINK IT'S REALLY WELL THOUGHT OUT.I THINK IT'S REALLY WELL DONE.

YOU KNOW, YEAH THE BIG PLAYGROUND MIGHT BE THE LAST THING THAT GOES IN.

HAVING SOME MAJOR PLAY AREAS AND THINGS LIKE THAT IN THERE IS GOING TO DRAW OTHER PEOPLE DOWN IN THERE. I DID HEAR YOU MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT LIGHTING.

IS LIGHTING SOMETHING THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT IN THE PHASING AND WALK ME THROUGH THAT AND WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE. LIGHTING WOULD BE DIFFICULT BECAUSE ARE SOME HOMES THAT ARE ON THAT BACKSIDE. YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE SOME LIGHTING DOWN THERE.

>> RIGHT, WE CERTAINLY WOULD. I THINK WE WOULD PROBABLY HAVE A LEVEL OF SECURITY LIGHTING IN THE PARKING LOT AND THEN AS FUTURE PHASES BUILD THAT CAN BE ASSESSED ON HOW MUCH THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDED ONTO. THE PLAN IS VERY SCALABLE TO BE TAKEN DOWN IN BITE-SIZE PIECES.

I THINK THE MORE BITE-SIZE PIECES YOU TAKE THE MORE IT WILL COST IN THE LONG RUN.

LIGHTING CERTAINLY IS A PIECE OF IT. WE WOULD WANT TO KEEP THAT CLOSE SCOUT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND NOT BE OVERWHELMING OR OVER SPILLING INTO ANY OF THOSE MANAGED NEIGHBORS YOU MENTION. THAT'S A HIGH PIORITY I CERTAINLY AGREE.

THE SECURITY ASPECT IS IMPORTANT. >> A JOB AGAIN.

I REALLY LIKE THE VISION FOR IT. AND THAT'S WHY WE HAVE MASTER PLANS SO IT GIVE SOMEBODY SOMETHING WHEN WERE ALL GONE THAT WILL MAKE DECISIONS IN THE VISION STAYS THERE EVEN THOUGH IT TAKES A WHILE TO GET IT THERE.

WELL DONE. THANK YOU FOR COMING. >> THANK YOU.

>> I WILL ECHO THAT TOO. I LOVE IT. I THINK IT WILL BE A MULTI YEAR APPROACH TO GET WHAT WE NEED DOWN THERE. TO FULLY UTILIZE THE MASTER PLAN. I LIKE THE PHASING OF THE FIRST PHASE.

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT IF YOU DO GET THE GRANT WHAT WOULD COME AFTER THAT?

>> RIGHT, WE HAD BEEN TALKING WITH ERIN ABOUT THAT. AARON?

>> WHAT WE WOULD DO THE GRANT ONLY ALLOWS US TO DO CERTAIN THINGS.

BASED ON THE COMMENTS WE GOT THAT WE RECEIVED FROM THE CITIZEN INPUT IS HOW WE WOULD MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT. BASICALLY IN A PRIORITY SYSTEM IF YOU WILL.

WE HAVEN'T HAD FULL DISCUSSIONS WITH ANDREW ABOUT WHERE WE WOULD GO OR WHAT IT WOULD PURPOSELY BE. FINGERS CROSSED WE DO GET IT. WE PROBABLY WILL START WITH THOSE DISCUSSIONS AS FAR AS WHAT IF'S. PROBABLY AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR APPEARED SO WE CAN BE PREPARED IF WE DO GET THAT MONEY.

>> I'D LIKE TO UNDERSTAND IT LITTLE BIT BETTER. YOU'RE ASKING US TO SIGN OFF A MASTER PLAN AND THE PHASING OR THE FIRST PHASE AND IF THOSE GRANT FUNDS HAVE RESTRICTIONS UP TO UNDERSTAND THAT. SORRY ANGIE, YOU'RE ABOUT TO SAY SOMETHING?

>> KNOW YOU'RE GOOD. THANK YOU MARY. IN APPLYING FOR THE GRANT THE GRANT IS A TEXAS PARK AND WILDLIFE OUTDOOR GRANT. THEIR FOCUS IS ON KAYAK

[00:35:06]

LAUNCHES AND WHAT IT IS IS THAT MATCHING GRANT. THEY WILL GIVE US FUNDING FOR EVERY DOLLAR THAT WE CAN SPEND OUR ADDITIONAL FUNDING OTHER THINGS.

WE WILL BE ABLE TO GROW PHASE 1 INTO ADDITIONAL TRAILS, ADDITIONAL PICNIC STATIONS.

MAYBE CHARLOTTE ENHANCEMENT. A GRANT CAN FUN THINGS LIKE THE KAYAK LAUNCH AND DIFFERENT THINGS LIKE THAT. TRAILS, KAYAK LAUNCHES, ANYTHING THAT ALLOWS FOR INTERACTION THAT TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE PADDLING TRAIL. THAT IS A BIG FOCUS FOR IT AND A HUGE SELLING BOAT, WE HOPE FOR TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE. THAT'S WHAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO CONTINUE THAT TRAIL. CONDITIONAL ADDITIONAL PICNIC STATIONS.

MAYBE START THE BOARDWALK THAT WOULD BE A GRANT ELIGIBLE EXPENSE DOWN THE PARK.

>> MAY BE THE FIRST PIECE OF THE FISHING PIER. THE MORE DIVERSITY YOU SHOW IT GETS THE GRANT TO BE MORE COMPETITIVE. IT'S A SCORING KIND OF THING.

>> SO YOU WOULD NOT PLAN ON UTILIZING OUR FUNDING FOR PHASE 1 IMPROVEMENTS UNTIL WE KNOW

WHETHER WE GET THE GRANT? IS THAT THE PLAN? >> WELL, THE WAY THE GRANT WORKS IS WE CAN'T PUT A SHOVEL IN THE GROUND UNTIL WE KNOW. WE HAVE ALSO ASKED FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING IN THE 2021 PROJECTS. WE ARE BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN WE FIND OUT ABOUT THE GRANT WHICH WE BELIEVE WILL BE ABOUT MAY WE WILL BEGIN THE CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS AND THOSE THINGS. THEN IT WILL BE KEYED UP AND READY TO GO OR WE WILL ADD ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS, A PHASE 2 OF YOU WILL FOR AN ADDITIONAL $400,000 AND THAT EVEN THE POTENTIAL WITH THE 20 AND 21 TAB ADDITIONAL MONEY IF THAT GOES TO THAT PROCESS.

BUT, WE WOULD HAVE IT READY TO GO WITH PHASE 1 AS YOU SAW TONIGHT.

WITH THOSE OTHER ELEMENTS KEYED UP AND READY IF WE GOT THE ADDITIONAL GRANT MONEY.

>> IS THE FIRST TIME WE'VE APPLIED FOR THAT TYPE OF GRANT TO YOUR KNOWLEDGE?

>> IT IS, YES MA'AM FOR THE LOCAL PARKS GRANT. X IS NOT PIE-IN-THE-SKY?

IS THAT A GOOD CHANCE? ANY FEEL? >> I HAVE WORKED A LOT WITH TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE. AARON AND I RECEIVED A GRANT IN ANOTHER CITY I BELIEVE WE HAVE A VERY COMPETITIVE PROJECT. WE'VE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH ANDREW AT STUDIO OUTSIDE AND I BELIEVE WE HAVE A VERY COMPETITIVE PROJECT BECAUSE IT TIES DIRECTLY BACK TO THEIR PADDLING TRAIL. THAT BEING SAID IT'S HARD FOR ME TO SAY BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW

WHO ELSE APPLIED TO WHAT PROJECTS THEY HAVE. >> CERTAINLY.

I'M JUST TRY TO UNDERSTAND IF IT WAS A REALLY LONGSHOT OR IF WE WERE IN A COMPETITIVE

SITUATION. >> I THINK WE ARE IN A COMPETITIVE SITUATION BASED ON THE LOCATION AND IT BEING LAKEFRONT AND WE HAVE A PRETTY UNIQUE PROJECT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT PADDLING TRAIL FROM ANOTHER POINT. QUICK CERTAINLY.

I'M GONNA CALL HIM WHITNEY, HE HANDED THIS AND UP. MARTHA AND MATT YOU STILL HAVE YOUR HANDS UP AND I'LL CALL ON YOU AGAIN IF YOU HAVE MORE. KEEP YOUR HAND UP.

>> BINKY MAYOR. IN THE PAST WE'VE TAKEN SOME PUBLIC COMMNT ABOUT SOME SECURITY ISSUES ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE PROPERTY. WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT ENSURING WE ARE NOT CREATING MORE OF A PROBLEM WITH THE PARK DESIGN THAT WILL ATTRACT MORE USERS TO THE PARK THAT COULD POSSIBLY EXACERBATE THE PROBLEM?

>> I THINK THAT WHEN YOU HAVE MORE PROGRAMS ARE BEING ACTIVELY USED THAT SHOULD HELP SOME TO DRIVE AWAY IF YOU WILL MORE PROBLEMATIC ACTIVITIES THAT MAY BE HAPPENING JUST BY THE FACT THAT IT IS MORE HEAVILY USED AND LESS " REMOTE " OR BACK OF HOUSE OR WHATEVER YOU MIGHT CALL IT ON THAT. THAT IS CERTAINLY ONE HOPE. I THINK THE OTHER WOULD BE THE ENHANCED LIGHTING AND OTHER ASPECTS LIKE THAT THAT WE DISCUSSED.

QUITE HONESTLY THERE'S GOING TO HAVE TO BE SOME LEVEL OF VOCATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT JUST CRUISING THROUGH TAKING A LOOK AT WHAT'S GOING ON. I THINK THE DROP OFF OF THAT CANOE LAUNCH WILL ALLOW FOR THAT TO HAPPEN EASILY. THEY COULD DRIVE-IN TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT DRIVE ON OUT TO GET EYES ON THINGS. THAT WOULD BE OUR APPROACH.

IT'S A CHALLENGE COMMITS A VERY GOOD POINT. IT'S AT THAT LITERALLY AT THE END OF THE ROAD. UP AGAINST THE WATER HEATED BY PA RAILROAD TRACK.

IT'S GOING TO TAKE EYES ON IT TO DO THE SAME. >> WITH LOTS OF PARKING.

I THINK IT WOULD BE REALLY IMPORTANT TO BRING IN THE POLICE CHIEF TO GET HIS IDEAS ON SECURITY POSITIONS WE NEED TO ADD ONTO THAT PARKA POSSIBLY LOOK AT BARRIER DEVICES ON THAT

NORTH SIDE. >> WHAT YOU MEAN WHITNEY BY THAT LAST PART?

>> I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT'S AN ATTRACTIVE FENCING WE COULD DO SOME MORE TYPE OF VEGETATIVE SCREENING WE CAN DO TO PREVENT A SOFT BARRIER FROM FOLKS GOING OVER INTO THERE.

[00:40:06]

I JUST IMAGINE BECAUSE WERE ATTRACTING MORE FOLKS DOWN THERE WERE PROVIDING 4 TIMES MORE PARKING THAT IS HIDDEN AT NIGHT THAT WERE ASKING FOR MORE ISSUES.

I THINK THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE THOUGHT ABOUT HOW WE COORDINATE THOSE THINGS.

>> SO, CHIEF DO YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON ANY OF THAT? >> WHITNEY, CAN I ASK A QUESTION. ARE YOU REFERENCING AT BUILDOUT OR WITH PHASE 1?

>> REALLY IS WITH BUILDOUT. I HAVEN'T SEEN WITH PHASE 2 AND PHASE 3 AND ALL THOSE THINGS LOOK LIKE BUT, AT SOME POINT YOU'VE GOT, YOU COULD BUILD THAT ROAD WITH ALL OF THAT ADDITIONAL PARKING NEXT TO THE RIVER AND I THINK THAT'S WHERE YOU CAN HAVE THOSE ISSUES CROP

UP. >> ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY AS WE GO DOWN THAT PHASE WE WILL BE INVOLVED. WE BEEN MEETING WITH COMMUNITY SERVICES, AARON HAS BEEN DOING THAT AS A COUPLE DIFFERENT PARKS TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE SAFETY FEATURES IN PLACE.

AS WE TAKE IT FURTHER AND FURTHER IN YES, WE WILL NEED TO LOOK AT, TO BE ONLY LEAVE A CERTAIN PART OF IT OPEN AFTER DARK, HOW DO WE HANDLE THAT. I THINK WITH PHASE 1 BY DEVELOPING THAT PARKING LOT A LITTLE BIT WE WILL STOP THAT NATURAL TRAFFIC THAT SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE HAS JUST FILTERED ITS WAY DOWN INTO THAT AREA ON THAT SIDE OF THE RAILROAD TRACKS.

AS ANDREW MENTIONED, WHAT WE LEARNED IS AS WE DEVELOPED SOME THINGS BECOME TO STOP THAT NATURAL FLOW OF TRAFFIC AND WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS DOING THAT BY CLOSING THOSE AREAS OFF WITH GATES. AS IT GETS DEVELOPED WILL DO MORE OF THAT AND ABSOLUTELY AS WE DEVELOP THE WHOLE SITE PLAN WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT TO MAKE SURE, WHAT IS THE SECRET? DO WE BLOCK THAT OFF AT NIGHT? HOW DO WE KEEP PEOPLE FROM GOING DOWN TO THE VERY END AND HIDING AND CAN INCREASE TRAFFIC

AND SECURITY THERE. >> WHICH, WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THAT TODAY.

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> I'M NOT MINIMIZING YOUR ISSUES THERE.

I'M NOT TRYING TO SAY THAT. >> I WANT TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOD WHETHER THAT WAS A PHASE 1 OR ASKED THE ROAD AND THE PARKING IS BUILT AND HOW DO WE WORK THROUGH THAT.

WE ABSOLUTELY CAN. AARON ABSOLUTELY CAN. NEXT MATCH, YOU HAVE A HAND UP.

>> YEAH I WANT TO MAKE ANOTHER POINT. ONE TEAR POINT MAYOR I THINK IT WOULD BE REALLY COOL EXPERIENCE. THIS MORNING CHECKS A LOT OF THEIR BOXES OF COMMUNITIES AND WE HAVE A REALLY GOOD SHOT. ESPECIALLY IF ARE ABLE TO GET THAT GRANT I KNOW YOU HAD A REALLY NICE SHADED STRUCTURES OVER THE PICNIC TABLES WHICH WE LIVED IN TEXAS WE DEATHLY WANT THOSE. IF MONEY BECAME SHORT THOSE ARE SOMETHING THAT ARE EASY TO PUT UP LATER IF YOU HAD TO. A PICNIC TABLE OR ARE NOT RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE IT'S A SHELTER THAT GOES OVER THE GETS PRICEY.

I WOULD LIKE TO EVENTUALLY SEE THOSE HAVING THAT FIRST PIER INSTALLED FIRST TO ME HAS MORE OF AN ELEMENT TO THAT PARK THAN HAVING THOSE SHELTERS. IF ARE ABLE TO AND LOOKING UP TO GET THE GRANT START PLAYING WITH SOME OF THOSE PIECES AS THEY GO IN.

I'D RATHER PUT IN MORE PICNIC PATHS AND ONLY ONE OR 2 SHELTERS IN THE BEGINNING AND GET THE PEER DONE AND THEN ADD SHELTER AS WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE.

I THINK THAT WILL ADD A BETTER ELEMENT. JUST A THOUGHT TO BRING TO IT.

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> SO, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS COUNSEL OR STUFF? SO, I THINK I'M HEARING PRETTY WIDE SUPPORT FOR WHAT YOU GOT. YES COUNSEL?

>> I LOVE THE NATURAL PARKS DOWN THE ROAD. I THINK THAT'S THE WAY TO GO DOWN THERE CERTAINLY.E DON'T HAVE THAT ELEMENT IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE GREAT. I DON'T THINK AS MUCH AS I WANT A SPLASH PAD IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT I DON'T THINK THIS IS THE PLACE FOR IT. WE KNOW WHERE THE PLACE FOR THE SPLASH PAD IS, DON'T WE. HERBERT PARK FOR THE PUBLIC. SO, WHAT SPECIFIC QUESTIONS DO

YOU HAVE FOR US AARON AND HOW WE ANSWER THEM? >> I GUESS OUR ONLY QUESTION IS DO WE HAVE CONSENSUS WITH THE MASTER PLAN FROM CITY COUNCIL AND WE HAVE SENSES WITH PHASE

1? >> SO WE DO WE HAVE CONSENSUS WITH THE MASTER PLAN, I

CERTAINLY DO. >> YES. >> YES YOU DO.

[00:45:01]

CONSENSUS WITH PHASE 1. I'M STILL CONFUSED ABOUT THAT IN REGARDS TO THE GRANT.

NOT GONNA START WORK UNTIL YOU KNOW WHETHER YOU GOT THE GRANT YET.

WE DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT $800,000 WORTH OF WORK IS. SO, CERTAINLY I THINK THAT THE LAUNCHPAD AND WHAT YOU'VE IDENTIFIED NEEDS TO BE IN THAT INITIAL FACING.

I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT WORKS INTO THE GRANT. OTHER COMMENTS, COUNCIL?

>> DOES A BOARDWALK WORK INTO THAT PLAN ALSO? >> THE BOARDWALK IS NOT IN THE BUDGET FOR THE PHASE 1 UNLESS WE GET THE GRANT. I THINK WHAT WE HAVE SHOWN AS PHASE 1 IS THE MINIMAL BASELINE INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT THE KAYAK LAUNCH.

>> OKAY. >> PER MATT'S CONVERSATION WE COULD CHANGE YOU KNOW PICNIC SHELTER VERSUS THIS VERSUS THAT. WE CAN DO THAT WERE MAXIMIZING WHEN IT COMES TO THE TIME. WE HAVE A LOT OF DESIGNS TO DO TO GET THE DOCUMENTS.

IF WE GOT THE EXTRA MONEY WE COULD START TO PRIORITIZE THOSE OTHER ELEMENTS.

>> OKAY. SO COUNCIL TO THINK THE KAYAK LAUNCH IS THE FOCUS FOR PHASE

1? >> YES. >> I THANK YOU HAVE YOUR ANSWER AARON. I THINK THERE'S SOME DETAILS WE FIGURE IT OUT WITH POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL MONEY POTENTIALLY GETTING THAT GRANT. YOU WILL COME BACK TO US

WITHOUT I ASSUME. >> YES. >> OKAY.

IS THAT GOOD? >> THANK YOU MAYOR. >> THIS IS EXCITING THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THE CITY OF ROWLETT. I'M SO EXCITED WORK AND ACTIVATE THAT SITE IT'S A REALLY IMPORTANT PRIME SITE FOR THE CITY.

SO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND THANK YOU FOR THE MASTER DESIGN AND ALL THE PUBLIC INPUT. IN WORK BY THE PARKS IN BLACKBOARD.MPORTANT STUFF.

>> I APPRECIATE IT, IT'S A FUN PROJECT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> IT IS GOING TO BE A FUN PROJECT. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> I COULDN'T FIND MY AGENDA. SORRY. I'M EAGER TO MOVE ON? ALL RIGHT, ITEM 3B DISCUSS DAN ROBERTS ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CENTER.

[3B. Discuss Dan Roberts' Environmental Learning Center (DRELC) Design and Site Plan . (45 minutes)]

I CANNOT USE THAT ABBREVIATION. IT LOOKS LIKE LOOKS LIKE DERELICT.

DESIGN AND SITE PLAN. I'M SORRY. THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.

IT LOOKS LIKE DERELICT. WE COLLECT RELIC MAYOR. B>> THINKING THERE SO MUCH.

ANDREW'S GONNA STAY AROUND AND WERE GONNA ADD MORE ASSOCIATES ON THE CALL.

AS YOU KNOW THE ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CENTER IS A LONG AWAITED PROJECT.

WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CENTER IN THE EARLY 2000'S.

WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT EVER SINCE. IT HAS BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE SINCE I STARTED WITH THE SILLY OVERLAP IN 2011. RECENTLY WE DID ACQUIRE FULL OWNERSHIP OF THE LAND AND BEGAN TO GET TALKING ABOUT WHAT OUR NEXT STEPS ARE.

OVER THE LAST YEAR MYSELF AND SEVERAL OTHER MEMBERS OF STAFF, K RB, HAVE GOTTEN THE DISTINCT PLEASURE TO START DESIGN THIS UNIQUE PROJECT. THAT WILL NOT ONLY TAKE US ONE STEP CLOSER TO BEING A DESTINATION PARK SYSTEM AND TO BE USED BY PARTICIPANTS OF ALL AGES. IT'S ALSO NOT OFTEN WE GET TO DESIGN A PROJECT WITHOUT A SET BUDGET IN MIND. IF YOU RECALL THE DR ELC IS A JOINT PROJECT BETWEEN THE CITY

OF LA AND CARA B. ONCE THE GENERAL DESIGN IS APPROVED. >> I GUESS WE NEED TO UPGRADE

THE WI-FI AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER. >> AND G, WE CAN'T HEAR YOU.

SHE LOOKS FROZEN DOESN'T SHE? >> YES, I BELIEVE SHE'S FROZEN. >> SHE TRIPPED THE LIGHTS.

>> I'M GLAD SHE FROZE IN A DECENT POSE. HE DOES SOME OF F THAT YOU FREEZE YOU GOT THAT TERRIBLE LE POST. OH, WE LOST ER.

SO AARON THIS IS WHEN YOU TAKE OVER. >> SHE GOT BOOTED OFF AND ASKED

[00:50:02]

THAT WE GO AHEAD WITH THE PRESENTATION. SHE WAS JUST GIVING SOME OF THE

BACKGROUND TO IT. >> I WAS JUST JOKING AARON. >> I DIDN'T HAVE THE CLIFF

NOTES ANYWAY. >> SO WHO'S DOING THE PRESENTATION?

>> I MET WALLACE WITH ãã ARCHITECTS. >> THANK YOU, HI MATT.

>> HI. HAPPY TO BE HERE. I'M IT'S REALLY EXCITING.

THIS PROJECT WERE WORKING ALONGSIDE STUDIO OUTSIDE YOU GET A DOUBLE DOSE OF ANDREW TODAY. HE WILL BE ON HERE IN A LITTLE BIT.

IF YOU MOVE ON TO THE NEXT SLIDE THIS IS A SLIDE THAT ANGIE WAS JUST GOING TO HAVE A PLACEHOLDER TO TALK ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE PROJECT AND HOW IT'S BOTH FROM THE CITY OF ROWLETT AND ALSO KEEP RELIC BEAUTIFUL. WE HAD OUR STAKEHOLDER MEETINGS HAVE BEEN WITH BOTH. LOTS OF GREAT FEEDBACK IN BOTH. THE PROJECT SCHEDULE WHICH IS ON THE NEXT SLIDE IS REALLY SIMILAR TO THE LAKEFRONT PROJECT YOU JUST SAW.

WE KICKED OFF IN SEPTEMBER. IT SEEMS LIKE LOTS OF PROJECTS WERE STARTING UP AFTER PEOPLE ARE GETTING A LITTLE BIT MORE COMFORTABLE WITH OUR CURRENT SITUATIONS.

WE STARTED WITH WORKSHOPS AND PUBLIC MEETINGS. LOTS OF TIMES THAT'S WHERE ALMOST EVERY TIME THAT SOME OF THE BEST IDEAS COME FROM. SO, WORKING WITH K RB IN THE CITY WE REALLY FELT LIKE IT SENT US ON THE RIGHT PATH WITH SOME OF THE IMAGERY AND DESIGN YOU WILL SEE HERE COMING UP. JUST A STATEMENT FROM THOSE 2 MEETINGS I THINK REALLY IMPORTANT AND WE HAVE A SLIDE OR 2 THAT WILL TOUCH ON IT LATER.

WAS THAT FOR THIS FACILITY AND THIS IS" FROM THE DISCOVERY WORKSHOP FROM THE STAKEHOLDERS.

IT'S THAT THEY REALLY SEE IT AS A CORNERSTONE FACILITY FOR IMPLEMENTING SUSTAINABLE STRATEGIES. HER EDUCATION IS KEY. SO, THAT LAST PART, EDUCATION IS KEY, IS REALLY A LAUNCHING POINT TO WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE.

WE WILL START WITH THE LANDSCAPE AND SITE DESIGN. THAT'S THE BIG PICTURE.

AND THEN WE WILL MOVE INTO THE BUILDINGS AND EXPLAINED THE DESIGNS FOR THAT.

I WILL HAND IT OVER TO ANDREW. I MIGHT BE JUMPING IN ON A COUPLE OF SLIDES AND THEN WE WILL TAKE IT FROM THERE. IF ANGIE COMES ON WILL BE HAPPY FOR HER TO CHIME IN.

>> I BACK. WE LOST INTERNET CONNECTION DONE AT THE RCC.

>> A GREAT, JUST STARTING ANGIE. I DID KNOW IF YOU HAD ANYTHING

PTO ADD. >> OKAY, GO AHEAD ANDREW. >> THANKS MATT.

AND NG. THIS PROJECT HAS A LOT OF INTERESTING OPPORTUNITIES.

ECHOING MATT'S ATTENTION FOR THE OPPORTUNITY OF EDUCATION. I THINK ROSE LOUD AND CLEAR OF ALL THE MEETINGS AND ITS IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CENTER IS IT IN THE NAME OF THE PROJECT. BUT BETTER SITE COME UP RIGHT HERE ACROSS THE STREET FROM 2 SCHOOLS. IT'S INGRAINED IN THE DNA FOR THE SITE.T'S BEEN SELECTED

MANY YEARS AGO. WE HOPE. >> QUIT NOTE ON SITE CONTEXT PER THE CONNECTIVITY HERE AS WE HAVE PEDESTRIAN ACCESS FROM THOSE 2 SCHOOLS.

AND THEN THE NETWORK OF LITTLE SIDEWALKS AND WHATEVER THAT WILL CONNECT THE SITES TO THE NEIGHBORHOODS SURROUNDED. HOW CAN THE SITE BE AN ASSET DURING THE WEEK TO THE SCHOOL GROUPS THAT'S GOT AN EXTENSION NOT ONLY FOR THESE 2 SCHOOLS BUT ACROSS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND BEYOND. ALSO BE A NEIGHBORHOOD RESOURCE AS WELL.

ALL OF THESE ARE THINGS WE TRY TO CONSIDER AS WE START TO ZOOM IN AND UNDERSTAND.

>> NEXT. SOME OF YOU MAY BE FAMILIAR WITH THIS SITE.

THIS IS EXISTING LANDSCAPE THAT A BEEN INSTALLED SOME YEARS BACK.

SO MASONRY AND GARDENS. IT'S PRIMARILY CHARACTERIZED BY THE TOP LEFT AND MIDDLE TOP PHOTOS WHICH IS REALLY JUST AN OPEN SPACE. THERE'S REALLY NOT THAT MUCH TO IT. THE COLUMNS AND THE FENCING AND STUFF THAT ARE THERE HAVE CREATED AN EDGE AND AN ARRAY OF TREES THAT BUFFER FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE SOUTH.

IT'S ABOUT IS BLANK SLATE AS IT COMES FOR A LEARNING CENTER PROJECT.

THERE'S NOT INHERENTLY A MASSIVE ONE OF NATURE'S WONDERS TO CELEBRATE HERE BUT, OR SITE LIKE THIS IT GIVES US A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY TO BRING A LOT OF EDUCATIONAL FIREPOWER TO THE SITE AND REALLY DEVELOP IT IN A MANNER THAT CAN BEST DELIVER ON THAT MISSION.

NOT BEING TIED TO A LOT OF OTHER SITE CONSTRAINTS. THE NEXT SLIDE HERE TALKS OUT

[00:55:04]

SOME OF THE KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THE NGAGEMENT AND FROM THOSE STAKEHOLDER SESSIONS THAT MATT HAD REFERENCED. IN INTEREST IN TEXAS PSYCHOLOGIES FOR THE LEARNING OPPORTUNITY BOTH FOR THE SCHOOLS AND FOR FAMILIES THEY MAY VISIT OR ON THE WEEKENDS OR OTHER GROUPS THAT MIGHT COME THERE FOR AN EVENING MEETING OR LECTURE SERIES OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. WHAT OTHER SUSTAINABILITY AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THAT FOR BUILDING AND SITE TOGETHER IN A NATURAL SYSTEM BUT TECHNOLOGIES AND OTHER THINGS THAT'S A WHOLE WIDE VARIETY OF PROGRAMS THAT COULD TAKE PLACE THERE. THE STORY OF WATER EDUCATION.

HERE IS A CITY OF ROWLETT ON A MAJOR LEAGUE IN THE MIDDLE OF NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS.

HOW DO WE TREAT WATER. HOW DOES IT MAKE ITS WAY DOWN TO THE LAKE? HOW DO WE BUILD AND APPROVE APPROPRIATE WAYS SO BE DON'T IMPACT THE RESOURCE THAT IS THE LAKE THAT IS ONE OF THE CALLING CARDS OF OUR CITY AND NEIGHBORHOOD AND COMMUNITY DESTINATION, RIGHT? FINALLY, THE INDOOR AND OUTDOOR SPACES THAT HAVE A STRON CONNECTION. WE DON'T WANT FOLKS TO JUST COME TO THE BUILDING AND I'LL GO OUTSIDE OR JUST GO OUTSIDE AND NOT EXPERIENCE THE BUILDING.HEY HAVE TO BE INTERTWINED SO THEY WORK TOGETHER AND COLLECTIVELY BUILD THE MOST IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE.

AUDIENCES, CERTAINLY THE SCHOOL GROUPS, FAMILIES AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS.

COMMUNITY GROUPS COULD COME HERE FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF EVENTS.

EXAMPLE WE LIKE TO USUALLY GIVE IS YOU MAY COME HERE FOR ONE TYPE OF MEETING OR ACTIVTY BUT, YOU'RE EXPOSED TO THE MISSION AND YOU LEAVE WITH A BETTER UNDERSTANDING AND A BETTER AWARENESS OF THE SITE AND ITS STORYLINE SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO COME OUT.

A WHOLE HOST OF FLEXIBILITY FOR THAT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. FROM OUR PROGRAM PRIORITY STANDPOINT, HIGH PRIORITIES FOR TRAILS, PAVILIONS, THE IDEA WATER EDUCATION, SOME TYPE OF OTHER IMMERSIVE ELEMENTS OUTSIDE OF THE EXHIBITS, NATURE PLAY AND WHATNOT.EDIUM WAS CLASSROOMS, OUTDOOR CLASSROOMS, DEMONSTRATIONS, GARDENS, GATHERING SPACES AND A LOWER PRIORITY WERE LOGS, COMMUNITY GARDEN, GREENHOUSE, IT WASN'T REALLY SEEN AS A PRODUCTION SITE IF YOU WILL. NOT NECESSARILY A MAJOR FOCUS ON THE SPACE.

NOT TO SAY WE WOULD NOT HAVE THE FLEXIBILITY TO HAVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MEDIUM AND SMALL EVENTS. WERE NOT TRYING TO BRING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HERE FOR ONE BIG THING, RIGHT? ALL OF THESE ARE VERY APPROPRIATE FOR THE SITE AND THE SCALE AND THE LOCATION CONTEXT WITHIN AND HAVE IT SURROUNDED BY MAC.TRE D' ON 2 SIDES.LL OF THIS REALLY STARTED TO PUT TOGETHER PROPERLY APPROPRIATE AND INSPIRING PARK THAT WE THINK THE SITE WILL START TO CELEBRATE.

>> BEFORE YOU LOSE THEM A MOVE TO THE NEXT SITE. ON THE BRIGHT SIDE IS SOME POLES WE DID DURING THE PUBLIC MEETING. WE HAD ABOUT 8 OR 10 DIFFERENT QUESTIONS. THIS ONCE INTERESTING. WE PLUCKED THE SOUND AND PUT IT ON AS AN EXAMPLE TO SHOW YOU. WHILE WHILE WATER HARVESTING SCORE THE BEST, WILDLIFE OBSERVATION I WANTED YOU TO KNOW THIS WAS BEFORE THE MOUNTAIN LION SIGHTING.

ABOUT THAT PERCENTAGE, THERE'S AN UPTICK ON THAT ONE. >> ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO ON TO THE NEXT ONE HERE. SO, WE WILL GO INTO ALL THESE ELEMENTS WITH A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL. GENERALLY SPEAKING THE LAYOUT IS AS FOLLOWS.

THE RED ZONE OVER THERE TO THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE SITE OFF OF BOBBY LANE IS THE PARKING, ARRIVAL AREA. THE ORANGE OF THE MIDDLE IS THE GATEWAYARCHITECTURAL PROGRAM SET OF BUILDINGS THAT IS A PORTAL TO THE OUTDOOR LEARNING EXPERIENCE THAT TAKE UP THE REMAINDER OF THE SITE. WE THINK THIS IS A GREAT TRANSITION AND OPENS HIS UP TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND PRESENTS ITSELF WELL TO THE CITY. A VIDEO OF CHEESY ROAD INTERSECTION TO BE WELCOMING TO VISITORS FROM THE SCHOOLS BUT ALSO TO THE PARK COMMUNITY.

THIS NEXT SERIES OF SLIDES AS YOU CONTINUE STARTS TO TELL THAT STORY.

WE HAVE A HIERARCHY OF CIRCULATION, THE PERIMETER CONNECTIONS HERE.

THE RED TRAIL START TO BUILD THAT NETWORK, THAT WELCOMES FOLKS FROM THE IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS. THE STARTS TO TALK ABOUT THIS TRAN SET TROUT THAT'S MADE ACCESS THAT STARTS AT THE PARKING LOT, DRAWS YOU THROUGH THE BUILDING AND THEN THROUGH THE SITE EXPERIENCES THROUGH THIS ULTIMATE DESTINATION THAT WILL

[01:00:10]

TALK ABOUT LATER ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE SITE. TRANSECT MEETING KIND OF A STRAIGHT LINE.WE DO THE ENTER HERE. THE IDEA IS THE BUILDING CREATES THIS PORTAL AND YOU SEE A SERIES OF DESTINATIONS OFF IN THE LANDSCAPE.

WHICH YOU'RE ABOUT TO GET TO THEM MIGHT BE SLIGHTLY MORE CIRCUITOUS SO IT HAS A SENSE OF REVEALING AND MYSTERY AS IT BECKONS YOU FURTHER INTO THE SITE.

FINALLY THIS IS THE TERTIARY SET OF TRAILS THAT ARE REALLY THE INTERPRETIVE PALACE. THE ARE ARUBA LASS MIGHT TAKE OR SMALLER SUBSET OF A CLASS TO EXPLORE THE OTHER DESTINATIONS HERE AND GET THAT IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE.

EACH OF THESE TRAILS, THE RED, BLUE AND YELLOW MAY BE A DIFFERENT MATERIAL IN A DIFFERENT WITH TO AGAIN CREATE THAT DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE AS PEOPLE EXPLORE DIFFERENT AREAS.

NEXT SET TALKS ABOUT THE HABITAT SYSTEM. AGAIN COMING BACK TO THE IDEA OF TEXAS ECOLOGIES IN THE SENSE OF EDUCATION. THE CITY OF ROWLETT SITS THERE IN THE BLACK LAND.AS DOES MUCH OF THE EASTERN SIDE OF METROPLEX.

IT IS A VERY ENDANGERED HABITAT TYPE THAT IS UNIQUE AND LINEAR BAND THAT GOES NORTH AND SOUTH THROUGH THIS AREA. IT IS THE BACKBONE OF THE VERY ROOTS OF WHY THIS AREA WAS SETTLED TO BEGIN WITH. LITERALLY IT'S ROOTS RUN VERY DEEP INTO THE SOIL.

ALSO, IT HAS BEEN CONSISTENT LEAK GOBBLED UP. MY DEVELOPMENT AND OTHER THINGS. AS YOU SIT HERE ON THE SITE AND LOOK TO THE EAST AND WEST, WEST GOING TOWARDS FORT WORTH. EAST IS SAVANNA. THIS SYSTEM HAS BEEN MISUNDERSTOOD BY MANY RESIDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN HERE MANY YEARS AND CERTAINLY FOLKS WHO MOVE HERE LIKE MYSELF. WHAT ARE THE STORIES WE CAN IMMERSE VISITORS AND TO REALLY UNDERSTAND THESE?HE SHOWS WE'VE DIVIDED THE SITE INTO THESE 3 ZONES.

WHERE THE BUILDINGS ARE SORT OF SET ON THE WESTERN AND SITTING IN THE SHADE OF THE CROSSED EMBERS LOOKING ACROSS THE PRAIRIE. THE IDEA OF THOSE TALL GRASSES AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE PRAIRIE ENVIRONMENT CREATES IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE OF EDUCATIONAL ELEMENTS. AS YOU LOOK FURTHER TO THE EAST YOU HIT SAVANNA.

WE SEE THE SITE STARTING TO SET UP 3 DISTINCT LANDSCAPE ZONES THAT ARE MICROCOSM AND ECOSYSTEMS OF NORTH-CENTRAL TEXAS. VISITORS WHO SIT IN ONE OR WALK THROUGH RUN AND SEE THE OTHER 2, THEY COULD SEE THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THEM AND START TO REALLY APPRECIATE THE REALITY AND DIVERSITY OF THINGS AS YOU MOVE THROUGH THE METROPLEX THINGS CHANGE AND YOU MAY NOT BE UNDERSTANDING WHY. HERE YOU CAN SEE THAT IN A MUCH SMALLER PIECE AND START TO UNDERSTAND IT. HOPEFULLY WHEN YOU LEAVE ANY DRIVE AROUND THESE OTHER PLACES YOU WILL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER AT THE PARK.

THE NEXT PIECE FURTHER STARTS TO TALK ABOUT THE INTENTION AS IT WAS BROUGHT UP TO THE STAKEHOLDERS IS EDUCATING ABOUT ALL TEXAS ECOLOGIES. STATE OF TRYING TO PUT A QUILT OF ALL OF THESE ACROSS A MEDIUM SIZE SIDE I WOULD SAY. THE TALKS ABOUT HOW WE MIGHT INTERPRET THOSE PLANES IN THE RIVER IN THE GULF COAST THESE OTHER ASPECTS IN A DEDICATED ZONE OFF TO THE SOUTHEAST CORNER THAT WOULD BE THE TEXAS ECOLOGY GARDEN. INSTEAD OF TRYING TO RE-CREATE SWATHS OF THINGS WE COULD DO IT IN A MANAGEABLE WAY. WE HAVE SPECIFIC MATERIALS, SPECIFIC PLANT SPECIES AND OTHER INTERPRETIVE ELEMENTS OR EXHIBIT TYPE SITES THAT NEED TO BE PETTED OUT THAT WOULD BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT THESE THINGS THAT YOU CAN CONTRAST WHAT IS THE PINEY WOODS.

WHY IS THAT DIFFERENT THAN SOMETHING YOU MIGHT SEE OUT AROUND LUBBOCK AND YOU CAN SEE THAT TOUCH IT IN A TANGIBLE WAY AND PERHAPS THERE BRACED PLANTER BEDS OR OTHER THINGS THAT TELL THAT STORY. WE ARE SHOWING THE IDEA OF A PAVILION THAT WOULD FURTHER AMPLIFY THIS AS A DESTINATION IN TEACHING OPPORTUNITY FOR SMALL-SCALE PROGRAMS THAT YOU CAN BE SITTING AND TALKING TO AND LISTENING TO A PRESENTATION OR SOMETHING ELSE.

THEN IT POINTS OUT ALL BEHIND YOU TO THESE OTHER LANDSCAPE ZONES AND COMPARE AND CONTRAST THEM AGAIN WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A BIGGER 3 CROSSTIMBERS THE PRAIRIE AND SAVANNA.

[01:05:07]

WE THINK IT'S A NEAT DESTINATION ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE SITE.

THE NEXT SERIES HERE STARTS TO PTALK ABOUT SOME OF THE OTHER EDUCATIONAL ELEMENTS WE'VE LIKE TO EXPLORE FURTHER. THE STORY OF WATER AS MENTIONED IS KINDA PRIME HERE.

I THINK THERE'S SO MANY ASPECTS OF SUSTAINABILITY AND APPRECIATION OF WATER AS A RESOURCE. THAT CAN REALLY BE CHANGED OR HOLD A MINDSET OF DEVELOPMENT AND ABOUT STEWARDSHIP OF OUR ENVIRONMENTS. THAT REALLY STARTS HERE AT THE PARKING LOT. WE WOULD SUGGEST THE PARKING EXPLICITLY COLLECT AND SHOW THAT WATER AND HOW IT RUNS OFF A CONCRETE AND HOW WE COLLECTED AND PUT IT INTO A LANDSCAPE SYSTEM OF BIO SPELLS IT IMMEDIATELY CAPTURES THAT WATER AND STARTS TO CHANNEL IT ABOVE GROUND RATHER THAN HIDING IT THROUGH A SET OF NATURAL SYSTEMS AND INTO SOME COLLECTION POINT WHERE IT HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO NATURALLY CLEANSE BEFORE BEING RELEASED INTO THE BROADER STORMWATER SYSTEM. PERHAPS SOME OF IT IS INFILTRATING BACK TO GROUNDWATER AND IT'S REVEALED TO FOLKS, PERHAPS THE BEST DAY TO COME TO THE SITE IS ACTUALLY A RAINY DAY. YOU CAN GET OUT HERE AND SEE WATER MOVING. I KNOW MATT IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT AS IT RELATES TO THE BUILDINGS A LITTLE BIT LATER. SITE WORK, HARDSCAPE, BUILDINGS AND LANDSCAPE SYSTEMS WORK TOGETHER TO REVEAL THIS WATER. SOME DAYS YOU SHOW UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMER AND IT'S DRY.UT THERE ARE THESE LITTLE NUANCES IN THE LANDSCAPE THEY SAY HEY COME ON REALLY DATE THAT'S A DIFFERENT KIND OF PLACE. THE PLANT MATERIAL WOULD BE RESPONSIVE TO THAT AS WELL. FOR EXAMPLE, THE WETTER AREAS OF THE CREEKS IN THE PRAIRIE, THE BLACK LAND.OOK DIFFERENT THAN THE BUTTER AREAS IN THE CROSSTIMBERS PERHAPS.

DIFFERENT SPECIES THAT MIGHT BE BETTER SUITED TO THOSE. THAT COULD REALLY BE IMPACTFUL FOR US. THE NEXT NIGHT STARTS TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE VISUALS THAT COULD SHOW THAT. RIGHT ON THE TOP LEFT IS A BIO SWELL APPROACH, COLLECTING WATER IN THE LANDSCAPE DEPRESSION AREA. IT GETS CHANNELED TO THESE COLLECTION POINTS. ONE OF THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR KIDS WERE VISITORS OF ALL AGES TO BE ABLE TO ENGAGE WITHOUT WATER, GET DOWN AND TOUCH IT. OTHER MARKERS AND OTHER EXHIBITS THERE THAT MIGHT SHOW FLOOD EVENTS OR SHOW HOW HIGH THE WATER GETS IN SOME DIFFERENT SITUATIONS. THIS IS A HANDS-ON LEARNING ENVIRONMENT.

IT'S VERY ENGAGING FOR VISITORS. , ALSO I THINK STARTS TO SHOW THAT ASPECT IN BEING ABLE TO TOUCH THINGS AND IMAGINE KIDS MIGHT COME HERE ON A SCHOOL GROUP FIELD TRIP AND GO BACK HOME UNTIL THEIR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS HEY, LET'S GO BACK OVER TO THE DAN ROBERT CENTER ON THE WEEKEND. IT'S UP MULTIGENERATIONAL CONNECTION THAT WE FOUND STARTS TO BUILD THAT SENSE OF STEWARDSHIP AND REINFORCES THE

EDUCATIONAL ROOTS. >> NEXT SLIDE TALKS BOUT SOME OF ESE OTHER EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES BEYOND THE STORY OF WATER. WE MAY AVE, THIS IS THE STARTING POINT. THERE MAY BE A LOW WATER USE DEMONSTRATION LONG FOR EXAMPLE THAT TALKS ABOUT ALTERNATIVE TURF VARIETIES. WE MAY HAVE TEST CARDS OR ENCOMPASSING EXHIBIT. WILDFIRE GARDENS, POLLINATOR GARDEN.

PAVING OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE CAN'T HAVE PEOPLE FOR PEOPLE LOOK AT THINK ABOUT IT.

MAYBE THEY TRY THEM OUT BACK AT THEIR OWN HOUSE PERHAPS. IT'S REALLY JUST EDUCATING PEOPLE ABOUT BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES IN ADDITION TO THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.

WHAT I'M GETTING AT HERE IS THERE'S A LOT OF STORYLINES HERE.

I THINK THAT CAN BE CELEBRATED IN DIFFERENT WAYS. VERY FLEXIBLE FOR MESSAGING IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF LEARNING. NEXT, SOME OF THESE PHOTOS SHOW THE ENGAGEMENT WITH KIDS.

IF IT'S AN OUTSIDE GROUP, GIRL SCOUTS, BOY SCOUTS, FOR AGE AND OTHERS THAT MAY COME OUT HERE.

MASTER NATURALIST. MASTER GARDENERS DOING THEIR OLUNTEER HOURS OUT LEADING PROGRAMS. MAYBE THERE'S EDUCATORS FROM COMMUNITY COLLEGE THAT COULD COME OUT AND SHARE THEIR EXPERTISE OR THE EGG LIFE CENTER PERHAPS WITH SOME

[01:10:04]

HANDS-ON LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES DURING HARVEST TIME. BUTTERFLY GARDENS ETC., ETC.

NEXT. ALSO HERE BEING AN EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT THE IDEA OF A NATURE PLAY ZONE HERE. I THINK IS DISTINCT AND DIFFERENT BEING CONSIDERED AT THE PREVIOUS PROJECT WERE TALKING ABOUT. I THINK HERE IT WOULD BE A MORE MANAGED TYPE OF SITUATION AND COULD HAVE A MORE INNER ACTIVITY BUILT-IN PERHAPS WITH THE THOUGHT OF MAY BE MORE BUILDING INSTRUCTION OR THE IDEA OF PLAYING AND BUILDING WITH DIFFERENT NATURAL MATERIALS, LOGS AND TREE STUMPS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

WE'VE SEEN PLAY WITH ANIMAL BONES FOR EXAMPLE IN ALL THOSE KINDS OF THINGS THAT REALLY GET KIDS IMAGINING AND EXCITED ABOUT NATURE AND EXCITED ABOUT THE ECOSYSTEMS. YOU CAN IMAGINE SEEING THE WATER AND SEEING THE HABITATS AND BEING ABLE TO DIG AROUND IN THE DIRT AND LET YOUR IMAGINATION RUN WILD. THE NEXT PICTURE OF THE TARTS TO SHOW SOME OF THOSE IDEAS ON HOW THAT COULD MANIFEST ITSELF.

THIS WOULD OBVIOUSLY BE VERY TIGHT INTO THE ULTIMATE MISSION OF THE FACILITY THAT COULD SERVE A VARIETY FOLKS THAT WOULD COMING ON A DAILY BASIS. NEXT.

FINALLY THE ULTIMATE SITE PLAN UNDER THESE LABELS ARE KIND OF SMALL TO READ ON THE SCREEN.

KIND OF STARTS TO SHOW THE DIFFERENT AREAS AGAIN IN THE CROSSTIMBERS ON THE WEST, THE BLACK LAND PRIORITY IS A YELLOW-GREEN ZONE IN THE MIDDLE AND SAVANNA ON THE RIGHT SIDE, ON THE EAST AND THE TEXAS ECOLOGY'S GARDEN ON THAT CIRCULAR ZONE OF.

MATT WILL TALK ABOUT A LOT OF THE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS, THE BOUNDARIES HERE BEFORE BETWEEN STRUCTURE AND SITE GET TO BE BLENDED. YOUR OUTSIDE LANDSCAPING ARE LOOKING AT ARCHITECTURE AND LEARNING ABOUT THESE THINGS. WATERS COMING FROM THE ROOF AND THE PARKING. ENGAGING WITH THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.THAT'S THE KEY THAT THESE KIDS EVERYWHERE THEY LOOK IN EVERY CORNER THEY LOOK AROUND AND THEY COME AROUND THE NEXT TRAIL THERE'S ANOTHER ASPECT HERE WHERE WE CAN SEE HOW IT'S ALL INTERCONNECTED.

THAT IS ONE OF THE HIGH POINTS WE THINK THAT CENTERS LIKE THIS CAN REALLY DELIVER.

KIDS CAN UNDERSTAND THAT EVERY DECISION THEY MAKE ABOUT THINGS FROM RECYCLED TO WATER IS

IMPORTANT. >> THANKS ANDREW. GOING INTO THE BUILDING.

AGAIN, WORKING WITH ANDREW HAS BEEN GREAT. THINK OF IT SO CLOSELY AND THAT THE LANDSCAPE AND EDUCATION AND THE ECOLOGY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT.

JUST ONE THING TO REITERATE BEFORE WE LEAVE THE SITE PLAN TO GO INTO THE BUILDINGS ITSELF IS, IF YOU NOTICE THE SHAPE AND FORM OF THE WATER FEATURE. YOU CROSS ABOUT WATER FEATURE 4 TIMES BEFORE YOUR DESTINATION ON THE EAST SIDE WHICH IS THE TEXAS ECOLOGY GARDEN.

THE BUILDINGS YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE WILL HAVE DETAILS OF WATER AND SELF AND ONE THING I WANTED TO POINT OUT WITHOUT. NEXT.

WE WANTED THE BUILDINGS TO BE HIGHLY FLEXIBLE. LOOKING AT THE BUILDINGS FLEXIBLE MEETING ONE BUILDING COULD BE OPEN, ALL BUILDINGS COULD BE OPEN, ALL BUILDINGS COULD BE LOCKED BUT YOU CAN STILL UTILIZE THE SITE. WE WILL GET INTO THE DESIGN OF THE PLAN AND HOW IT DOES THAT. IN GENERAL WE HAVE THE BUILDING TO THE SOUTH IS A MULTIPURPOSE BUILDING.N THE MIDDLE IS THE OPEN OFFICE. THERE'S AN OFFENSE AND CONFERENCE ROOM IN THERE AND THEN ON THE NORTH SIDE IS THE CLASSROOMS. ALSO, YOU CAN SEE THE DIRECTIONALITY OF THE ARROWS FROM INTERIOR OF THE BUILDING.

WE REALLY WANTED THEM TO SPEAK TO CERTAIN PARTS AND AREAS OF THE LANDSCAPE SO YOU CAN SEE NUMBER ONE, THE MULTIPURPOSE OPENS SOUTH TO AN OPEN AREA THAT WILL ALLOW FOR OUTDOOR EVENTS TO OCCUR WITHIN THE CROSSTIMBERS FOREST. TO THE NORTH IT DOES AS WELL.

TO THE EVENT LAWN TO THE SOUTH AND THE DEMONSTRATION TO THE EAST.

EACH SPACE, EVEN IF YOU'RE INSIDE THE BUILDING WE WANT TO HAVE A SPECIAL CONNECTION TO THE LANDSCAPE. GO AHEAD. AGAIN, WATER, THE STORY OF

[01:15:05]

WATER IS IMPORTANT TO THE SITE. RIGHT WHEN YOU STEP OFF THE BUS YOU SEE IT AT THE COLLECTION AND THEN AGAIN SEE IT MULTIPLE TIMES ON YOUR WALK EAST WITHIN THE SITE.

MOVE ON TO THE NEXT. WE ALSO WANTED TO EXPRESS THAT IN THE BUILDINGS.

YOU SEE IT WHEN YOU GET OFF. YOU SEE IT WITHIN CERTAIN ELEMENTS.

THIS IS HARD BERGER PARK URBAN ECOLOGY CENTER AT SAN ANTONIO. JUST THE SPIRIT YOU GET WHEN YOU SEE WATER COLLECTION AND THE SOUND. I THINK IT'S REALLY SPECIAL AND IMPORTANT. MOVE ON TO THE NEXT. THEN YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT.

SO ZOOMING IN HERE. A LITTLE BIT OF DETAIL. THE MOST BEAT PURPOSE BASE WILL HAVE A GATHERING HALL. WITH STORAGE FOR TABLES AND CHAIRS.

YOU CAN SEE THIS BETTER ONCE WE GET TO PLANS. THE OPEN OFFICE AGAIN.

STAFF RESTROOM, RECEPTION AND CONFERENCE ROOM. THEN YOUR 2 CLASSROOMS ON THE NORTH. WITH A DEMONSTRATION TOWER THAT WILL SPEAK ABOUT IN A LITTLE BIT. OKAY, NEXT. PRESIDENT IMAGES OF THE MULTIPURPOSE SPACE. REALLY IMPORTANT TO BE OPEN AND ALLOW FOR THAT CONNECTION TO THE LANDSCAPE. NEXT. AGAIN, THE CONNECTION FROM INTERIOR SPACE. THIS IS OFFICE SPACE BE DESIGNED IN AUSTIN TO SOME QUIETER SPACES SO YOU NOT ONLY HAVE LARGE GATHERING SPACES BUT ALSO QUIETER MOMENTS.

THEN THE NEXT ONE. IT'S THE OPPORTUNITIES TO HAVE OUTDOOR AND INTO CLASSROOMS AND HOW YOU CAN SIT ON THE BUILDING AND LOOK OUT AND GATHER ALONG ITS EDGES AS WELL.

OKAY GO TO THE NEXT ONE. SO THE PLAN. I'M GOING TO BECAUSE MY ARCHITECT I'M GONNA DRAW HERE FOR LITTLE BIT TO HIGHLIGHT SOME THINGS.

I THINK IT'S MOST IMPORTANT GOING BACK TO THE IDEA OF FLEXIBILITY.

I WANTED TO DROP A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT POINTS OUT THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE PLAN ON THIS. SCENARIO NUMBER ONE WOULD BE IF ALL THE BUILDINGS WOULD BE LOCKED UP BUT YOU STILL WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE THE SITE.

WE DID THESE 2 THINGS. WHICH, TELL ME IF YOU CAN SEE THAT? THESE ARE THE RESTROOMS. THE RESTROOMS OPEN UP TO THIS OUTDOOR ENTRY THROUGH THE PARK.

WE ARE ABLE TO UNLOCK AND KEEP THESE RESTROOMS UNLOCKED BUT LOCK UP THE REST OF THE BUILDINGS IN ORDER FOR SAFETY AND FLEXIBILITY. CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR AND CERTAIN TIMES OF NIGHT YOU WOULD WANT EVERYTHING OPEN. NUMBER 2 IS, WHAT IF YOU HAD AN EVENT AFTER HOURS WHERE YOU HAD A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. YOU HAD A NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATED MEETING ANY ALLOW THE COMMUNITY COME INTO USE THE SPACE.

THEY WOULD HAVE THIS FACILITY WHICH IS THE MULTIPURPOSE SPACE ALSO HAVING THE RESTROOMS OPEN AND BE ABLE TO LOCK UP AND CLOSE DOWN ONE OF THE BUILDINGS.

WHAT THIS ALSO DOES, SPLITTING THIS INTO 3 BUILDINGS AND ALLOWS FOR PHASING TOO.

YOU'RE ABLE TO BUILD ONE OF THESE OR ALL OF THESE OR 2 OF THESE.

WE THINK IF WE CAN GET INTO PHASING A LITTLE BIT LATER. ONE IDEA FOR PHASING WOULD BE IF YOU BUILD THIS PORTION FIRST. THE MULTIPURPOSE COULD BE A CLASSROOM. THAT'S LARGE ENOUGH FOR 2 CLASSES TO OCCUR THERE.

IT WOULD HAVE ADDITIONAL STORAGE AND RESTROOMS IN THIS SCENARIO.

YOU COULD ALSO PHASE IT TO WHERE THIS PART OF THE BUILDING WILL BE BUILT.

AGAIN THROUGH CRATING THE THRESHOLD THROUGH BUT ALSO HAVING SOME OTHER CONFERENCE ROOM AREAS AND AN OFFICE TO THE NORTH. THEN PHASE IT TO WHERE III WOULD BE THE CLASSROOMS ON THE NORTH. I THINK THE PLAN ALLOWS FOR THAT FLEXIBILITY OF PHASING AS WELL. IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT.

HERE'S A COUPLE OF IMAGES OF THE BUILDING ITSELF. YOU CAN SEE THE ENTRY FROM THE PARKING HERE. PLEASE EXCUSE THE LANDSCAPE ON THIS ANDREW WERE NOT LANDSCAPE

[01:20:08]

ARCHITECTS. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE YOU ON OUR TEAM.

WE DO THE BEST WE COULD. WE DIDN'T WANT ELEMENTS OF SUSTAINABILITY ON THIS PROJECT WHICH IF YOU WERE TO LOOK UP ON THE TOP OF THESE ROOFS YOU WOULD SEE SOLAR ARRAY RIGHT WHEN YOU ANSWER. YOU IMAGINE HAVING PV AND DAPPLE LIGHT GOING TO THE CROSSTIMBERS PORTION WHICH WOULD BE UNLOCK MORE WOODED THAN THIS AND SAY THAT CONNECTION TO THE SOLAR. THEN HERE ON THE EAST SIDE IN THIS RENDERING APPEARED TO THE OFFENSE THAT ARE BROKEN OUT. WE HAVE THIS WATER TOWER IN BACK.

THIS IS JUST A CONCEPT. WE REALLY THINK THAT THE SITE NEEDED A STATEMENT OR A LANDMARK YOU CAN SEE FROM THE ROAD AND FURTHER AWAY THAT MARKS THE SPOT.

IT GIVES A CONTEMPORARY FEEL TO THE SITE AND THE IDEA OF WATER STORAGE OR SOLAR ON-SITE.

THEN I THINK THE LAST IMAGE WE HAVE HERE IS THE VIEW AS IF YOU'RE WALKING FROM THE SCHOOLS IN. SHE IS A AND WITH THE CLASSROOMS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF COURSE THE TOWER DEMONSTRATION AREA ON THE WEST OF THIS IMAGE AND THEN IN THE BACKGROUND THE MULTIPURPOSE SPACE. I BELIEVE THAT IS THE LAST ONE. SO, THIS SLIDE YOU CAN SEE OVER HERE, THE COST. THE SITE WORK FOR THIS BEING 5.3 AND THE BUILDING COST 4.4 FOR A TOTAL OF 9.8 MILLION. WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS. I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS. THE SITE IS REALLY NEEDED MORE OF A TRANSFORATION THAN MOST SITES. WHEN WE THINK ABOUT DESIGN AND WE TALKED TO ANDREW AND HIS GROUP WE REALLY THINK ABOUT PRESENTATION FIRST, ENHANCING SECOND AND TRANSFORMING THIRD-PERIOD HAPPENS AT THE SITE NEEDED THE LATTER THAN THE FORMER.

IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE. I BELIEVE THAT'S IT. I'M HAPPY TO TAKE QUESTIONS.

>> WOW. CAN I MAKE A COUPLE OF COMMENTS BEFORE WE TURN IT OVER TO DISCUSSION. SORRY I GOT BOOTED OVER. PTHE DATA NETWORK SHUT DOWN ON ME. MAYBE IT WAS JOEY KICKING ME OFF.

EXCITING, VERY COOL. KEEP IN MIND TONIGHT WHAT WERE REALLY LOOKING AT IS JUST THE SITE PLANS. OUR GOAL NOW IS TO TURN IT OVER TO K RB.WE HAVE A VERY PROFESSIONAL COST ESTIMATION. I KNOW MARTHA AND THE TEAM HAS THE GUNS TO MEET WITH THE FUND RAISER APPEARED TO REALLY FIND OUT WHERE THOSE FUNDING DOLLARS ARE AVAILABLE TO START THIS PHASE PLANNING IF YOU WILL. IS IT BETTER TO START WITH BUILDINGS, IS IT BETTER TO START WITH GARDENS? WHERE IT REALLY IS. BUT YOU WILL SAW TONIGHT WAS THE ULTIMATE BUILDOUT OF THE PROJECT. NOW WE GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WE DO FIRST AND RICO. THEN I WILL TURN IT OVER TO ANDREW AND MATT ARE BOTH HERE WITH YOUR TEAMS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND TAKING INPUT.

MARTHA MAY HAVE A COUPLE OF WORDS AS WELL. MARGARET THEN SERVED ON THE TASK FORCE AND SHE MET WITH US. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. WE GOT TO SEE A LOT OF COOL

STUFF. IT WAS QUITE A PROJECT. >> IT IS QUITE A PROJECT.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK FIRST? >> SURE. IT IS QUITE A PROJECT.

AS ANGIE ALLUDED TO. IT'S BEEN MANY YEARS IN THE MAKING.

IT'S AN IMPRESSIVE UNDERTAKING AS I TEXTED BACK AND FORTH TO R PRICE TAG TOO.

WE REALIZE THAT. AFTER WE GOT THE PRICING IN THESE CONCEPT DRAWINGS WE HAVE HAD ONE MEETING WITH OUR FUNDRAISING CONSULTANT. SINCE THEN.

HE IS ACTUALLY A RELATIVE RESIDENT AND VARIABLE KNOWN IN THE FUNDRAISING WORLD.

WERE HAPPY TO HAVE THAT LEVEL OF PROFESSIONALISM TO GUIDE US AND HELP US PUT TOGETHER A FUNDRAISING STRATEGY. WE DO BELIEVE THIS WILL HAVE TO BE BUILT IN PHASES.

[01:25:03]

THAT PHASING HAS NOT BEEN QUITE DETERMINED YET. OUR RESEARCH BEGINS IN EARNEST NOW TO SEE WHAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE OUT THERE IN THE WAY OF GRANTS, FOUNDATIONS AND THEN OF COURSE CORPORATE DONATIONS AS WELL THAT WE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO TAP INTO.

SO, I BELIEVE THAT TONIGHT WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE COUNCILS BLESSING ON THE DIRECTION WE WANT TO GO IN. THE GENERAL DESIGN OF THIS AND THEN WE WILL BEGIN THE WORK OF PUTTING TOGETHER THE FUNDS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND GET INTO THE DETAILS OF IT.

>> COUNCIL, COMMENTS? IMPRESSIONS? MAP?

>> I THINK WE PICK THE RIGHT TEAM MARTHA. THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I GOT TO SEE THE WHOLE THING. I MISSED A COUPLE MEETINGS DUE TO CONFLICTS.

IF WERE ABLE TO BUILD THAT OUT TO COMPLETION AND GET IT DONE IT WILL BE THE BEST ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CENTER IN VFW. THE PICTURES YOU SHOWED AT SOME OF THE INSPIRATION YOU BROUGHT UP REMINDS ME OF AN ARBORETUM BUT, MORE NATURAL.

EVEN THE NEW LEARNING PLACE I THINK THAT'S WHAT IT'S CALLED THEY BUILT UP IN TULSA WHICH IS GETTING A LOT OF NOTORIETY. THERE'S ASPECTS OF IT IN THERE. JUST ANOTHER THING IF WERE ABLE TO BRING THIS TO ROW LET APPLE STEP UP OUR GAME OF PUT US ON THE MOUNT.

IT'S A HUGE PRICE TAG. IT'S A HUGE NDERTAKING. IF THIS IS IN DALLAS YOU CAN CALL A COUPLE PEOPLE AND GET IT FUNDED RIGHT AWAY. WHEN NOT IN DOS WERE IN ROWLETT. I THINK I PHASE IT WILL BE REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF YOU BUILD IT RIGHT YOU BUILD UP MOMENTUM AND PEOPLE USING IT AND THAT'S HOW YOU CAN FUND THIS. IT'S PROBABLY NOT COULD BE FUNDED 3 OR 4 REALLY BIG DONORS THAT WOULD BE FUNDED WITH 4000 LITTLE DONATIONS AS PEOPLE USE THIS SPACE OVER A PERIOD OF TIME. HOW YOU STRUCTURE THAT OUT WILL BE REALLY IMPORTANT.

MAN, IT'S REALLY COOL AND KUDOS TO YOU AND YOUR TEAM FOR PULLING THIS TOGETHER AND GETTING THE RIGHT TEAM ON BOARD. I LOVE IT.

>> I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED BY THE LEVEL OF DETAIL THAT WAS PUT INTO THE DESIGN AND I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A HUGE ASSET FOR OUR CITY AND TO THE FUTURE. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT'S AHEAD. I DO LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE DESIGN.

I AM IN SUPPORT OF THAT. >> MS. PAMELA BELL. >> I JUST WANT TO SAY I LOVE THE DESIGN. IT'S AWESOME. I COULD SEE MYSELF LEARNING SOME STUFF THERE. TAKING THE GRANDKIDS. BUT, IT'S AWESOME.

WE WILL AT THE FUNDING. I HAVE THAT FEELING. WE WILL GET THE FUNDING.

>> IT'S A VERY OPEN DESIGN. >> YES, YES. AND I COULD SEE THE KIDS RUNNING AROUND HAVING A GOOD TIME. THANK YOU.

>> I'M CURRENTLY NOT SEEING ANY OTHER HANDS RAISED SO' MINUTE. I KNOW WE HAD ONE CITIZEN INPUT ITEM FOR THIS ITEM. SO LAURA YOU HAVE THAT I BELIEVE?

>> YES MA'AM. >> YOU WANT TO READ IT? >> OKAY.

MY NAME IS MARK AIKEN I AM PRESIDENT OF CAPE ROWLETT BEAUTIFUL AND A RESIDENT OF ROWLETT. A MUFFLED SUPPORT OF WHAT'S BEEN PROPOSED TO BUILD THE DAN ROBERTS ENVIRONMENTAL LERNING CENTER. A DREAM THAT WAS PROPOSED 22 YEARS AGO IS FINALLY COMING TO FRUITION. THIS DREAM ENCOMPASSES THE ABILITY TO FOSTER A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN CITY GOVERNMENT, SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND THE COMMUNITY.

THE DR ELC WILL BE A PLACE FOR NATURE EDUCATION WHILE SETTING HIKE IN CONSERVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY STANDARDS AND RAISING A STRONG SENSE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS. IT WILL BE A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE OF ALL AGES CAN EXPLORE, LEARN, SHARE AND CELEBRATE NATURE. OUR BOARD MOTORS HAVE A STRONG COMMITMENT TO MAKING THIS

LEARNING CENTER IN ACTIVE OUTDOOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT. >> THANK YOU FOR READING THAT.

LAURA? ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR UESTIONS? I THINK IT'S ABSOLUTELY

[01:30:08]

GORGEOUS. I THINK IT WOULD BE A HUGE ASSET TO OUR COMMUNITY AND TO OUR REGION. I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT FUNDRAISING TEAM AND GOOD LUCK

TO ALL OF US. >> THANK YOU COUNSIL SO MUCH. >> THANK YOU WERE VERY HONORED AND HER TEAM IS VERY HONORED TO BE A PART OF THIS. VERY INSPIRING CLIENTS.

WE LOVE IT. >> ALL RIGHT. ANYTHING ELSE ANYONE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT ON THAT? ALL RIGHT, WE ARE RIGHT ON TIME.

[3C. Discuss the City's SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccine distribution strategy. (30 minutes)]

LOOK AT THAT. WERE GOING TO MOVE TO ITEM 3C WHICH IS DISCUSSED THE CITIES COVID-19 VACCINE DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY. GOOD EVENING MR. DASH.

>> GOOD EVENING MARY. I ASSUME THIS WILL BE YOU TAKING THIS?

? >> YES WHILE THE PRESENTATIONS BEING BROUGHT UP I DO WANT TO REINTRODUCE TATIAN SHOW SHIRT WAS WITH US FROM GARLAND HEALTH.

HE IS THE DIRECTOR OVER THERE. E'S HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT I'M NOT QUALIFIED TO ANSWER WHICH IS PROBABLY A LOT. I21 APOSTLE FOR A MINUTE.

JASON ALONG TH MANY OTHERS HAS JUST HAD AN INCREDIBLE WORK LOAD OVER THE E LAST, SINCE H.

JUST A SPECIAL THANKS TO GARLAND LTH WHO WAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN WORKING WITH US

HAND-IN-HAND. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> I WANT TO INTRODUCE HANNAH MYERS WHO WE BROUGHT ON AS THE MERCHANT SEEMED SPECIAL TO US LAST WEEK.

WE HAD HER WORKING 80 HOURS A WEEK SO I'M SURE SHE'S REALLY EXCITED TO BE HERE.

SHE'S GONNA HELP ME WITH COVID-19 AND MY NORMAL DUTIES. SHE'S EXCITED AND WERE EXCITED TO HAVE HER ABOARD. YOU'LL BE SEEING EMAILS FROM HER CORRUPT BROTHER EMAILS AND

COVID-19 UPDATES. >> WELCOME NUMBER EXCITED TO HAVE YOU ON THE TEAM.E

NEEDED THE HELP. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANK YOU, I'M EXCITED TO BE

HERE. >> COVID-19 VACCINES ARE HERE AND TONIGHT I WILL PRESENT A PROPOSED DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY. ABOUT 3RD OF MY PRESENTATION IS MEANT TO PROVIDE SOME BACKGROUND ON VACCINES. THAT'S WHERE I WILL START. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHILE DEFERRING THE FINAL VACCINE DISTRIBUTION THE CITIZEN STATES HAVE TAKEN A STRONG ROLE ON DEVELOPMENT MANUFACTURING AND OUTSOURCING THIS WEEK THE GENERAL DISTRIBUTION OF COVID-19 VACCINES THROUGH OPERATION WARP SPEED APPEARED THE GOAL IS TO HAVE 300 MILLION DOSES BEGINNING NEXT MONTH AND ENSURING ALL STANDING SAFETY PROTOCOLS ARE FOLLOWED.

GENERALLY ALL THOSE GOALS ARE BEING MET AT THIS TIME. NEXT.

WHILE THE PURPOSE OF THIS PRESENTATION IS NOT TO SPEAK ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THE DEVELOP VACCINES OR TO FAVOR ANY MANUFACTURER THAT SAID THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPES OF VACCINES IN PRODUCTION WITH THE PFIZER EMMA DHARNA MRN MA VACCINES TO THE FOREFRONT TO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO REFUTE MANUFACTURE, FDA AND CDC PROVIDED FOR EACH AND TO DISCUSS THOSE OPTIONS WITH YOUR DOCTOR. NEXT. THIS SLIDE SHOWS MAJOR FAXING CONTENDERS IN THE US MARKET. THE FIRST SHIPMENTS OF THE PFIZER VACCINE HAVE MADE IT TO TEXAS HOSPITALS. WE EXPECT THE FIRST SHIPMENTS OF THE MADONNA VACCINE TO ARRIVE WITHIN 2 WEEKS. AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF NEXT YEAR WE DO ANTICIPATE JOHNSON AND JOHNSON'S TRANSCENDENT VACCINE, ASTRAZENECA, AND GSK'S VACCINES TO BECOME AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. NEXT.

THE SLIDESHOW SHEET NUMBER OF DOSES PURCHASED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

ASSUMING ALL RECEIVE APPROVAL A SUFFICIENT AMOUNT OF VACCINE SHOULD BE AVAILABLE BY THE END POF NEXT SUMMER FOR EVERYONE IN THE US WHO WANTS ONE AND CAN TAKE ONE.

NEXT. I WON'T WON'T GO INTO EVERY SINGLE INFORMATION.

WANT TO POINT OUT ON RECENT STATE COST VACCINE BECAUSE THE PFIZER ARE DHARNA ASTRAZENECA AND JOHNSON AND JOHNSON, JANSSEN VACCINES HAVE BEEN THE FOCUS.

NEXT. THE REALLY IMPORTANT POINT IS EACH OF THESE VACCINES HAS A DIFFERENT CARBONATION OF REQUIREMENTS REGARDING STORAGE AND HANDLING AND THE NUMBER OF

[01:35:01]

DOSES AND THAT'S IMPORTANT FOR PLANNING. EVERYONE HAS SEEN THE ULTRACOLD STORAGE REQUIRED BY THE PFIZER VACCINE. AS YOU GO THROUGH THIS LIST THE REQUIREMENTS DIE OFF AND BECOME EASIER TO MANAGE. CURRENTLY LOOKING AT PFIZER, MAGENTA AND ASTRAZENECA BEING TO DOSE VACCINES IN THE JANSSEN BEING A SINGLE DOSE VACCINE.

OUR PLANNING EFFORTS WILL BE DEPENDING UPON WHICH VACCINE BECOMES AVAILABLE FOR OUR RESIDENTS. NEXT. BRIEFLY TOUCH ON THE CDC GUIDELINES DISTRIBUTION GUIDELINES WHICH OCCURRED IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS.

MUCH LIKE THE REST OF THIS ENTIRE COVID-19 EVENT MUCH OF THIS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

NEXT WEEK WE COULD BE HEARING SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. WHAT WE KNOW FOR SURE RIGHT NOW IS THAT PHASE 1 A1 INCLUDE HEALTHCARE PERSONNEL AND LONG-TERM CARE RESIDENTS.

AFTER THAT PHASE 1 B WILL INCLUDE CENTRAL WORKERS IN PHASE 1C ADULTS WITH HIGH-RISK MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND ADULTS OVER 65. BEYOND THAT EVEN PHASE 1 AND PHASE 1B PHASE 1C THERE'S NOT A LOT OF CLEAR GUIDANCE ON THAT YET.

WE DO EXPECT TO HAVE THAT IN THE COMING WEEKS. NEXT.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER THE STATE REALLY HAS THE FINAL SAY IN THE DISTRIBUTION OF THOSE VACCINES. FIRST WEEK OF PFIZER VACCINE DISTRIBUTION HAVE ALREADY STARTED. THE DISTRIBUTION WAS INITIATED YESTERDAY AND WE EXPECT 1/4 OF 1,000,209 HOSPITALS AND 34 COUNTIES. NOT EVERY HOSPITAL WILL RECEIVE A VACCINE. A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH BOTH THE AMOUNT OF VACCINES PROVIDED AND THE ABILITY TO STORE THE VACCINE. PHASE 1 A WILL INCLUDE HOSPITAL PERSONNEL OR HEALTHCARE PERSONNEL AND WALK-IN CARE FACILITY RESIDENTS AND WORKING AND HAVE IT MEETING TO DISCUSS TO PROVIDE THE VACCINE TO OUR EMS PERSONNEL.

THOSE ARE FIREFIGHTER AND PARAMEDICS AND EMTS. THE TEXAS PLAN HAS 3 ADDITIONAL PHASES STARTING. WITH THE GOAL OF PROVIDING FAXING ACCESS TO EVERYONE IN THE STATE BY THE END OF NEXT SUMMER. IN CONTINUING THE VACCINE EFFORTS IF NEEDED IN THE FUTURE LIKE RECEIPT WITH THE SEASONAL FLU VACCINE.

NEXT. ONE MAJOR PUBLIC INFORMATION CHALLENGE WE WILL FACE WILL BE EXPLAINING THE LIMITATIONS OF COVID-19 VACCINES WHEN IT COMES TO EASING OFF OF THE NONPHARMACEUTICAL INTERVENTIONS ARE NPI'S LIKE MASK WEARING, SOCIAL DISTANCING THAT WE'VE IMPLEMENTED THIS YEAR. THE FDA DECEMBER 10 PFIZER REVIEW DOCUMENT THEY DID CAUTION AGAINST USING VACCINE AVAILABILITY TO EASE OFF THESE NPI'S.

THIS IS DUE TO LIMITED DATA ON VACCINE DEVELOPMENT FROM VACCINE RESISTANCE AND OTHER FACTORS. THE POINT OF TRYING TO MAKE IS THAT THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF TALK IN THE MEDIA ABOUT VACCINE PASSESS. AND THE FDA IS CAUTIONING AGAINST THAT TYPE OF APPROACH. WE DO ANTICIPATE THE CDC AND FDA COMMUNICATED SEVERAL TIMES TO DO ANTICIPATE THE NEED FOR THESE NPI'S TO CONTINUE WELL INTO 2021.

NEXT. AS WE SAW WITH THE COVID-19 TESTING EARLY ON COUNTERFEITERS HAVE STARTED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF VACCINE AVAILABILITY. A FEW KEY POINTS ABOUT THE PRODUCT IS NOT AUTHORIZED OR PAPPROVED BY THE FDA IT CAN BE HARMFUL AND SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN. ALL VACCINE SHOULD COME FROM REPARABLE SOURCES.

THE CLEAR SIGN OF COVID-19 VACCINE FRAUD IS THE REQUIREMENT OF PAYMENT.

NO LEGITIMATE SOURCE WILL CHARGE A RECIPIENT FOR VACCINE. ANY ADMINISTRATION FEES CAN BE CHARGED TO THE INSURANCE PROVIDER OR REQUESTED AS PAYMENT FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE CARES ACT. NEXT.

THAT TAKES US TO THE VACCINE DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING WE STARTED THIS YEAR. IT'S BEEN SOMETHING WE'VE BEEN DEVELOPING FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

WE ARE A PARTY TO THE CITY OF GARLANDS MASS DISTRIBUTION POINT OF DISTRIBUTION PLANNING.

MR. NOVEMBER 5 I DID TELL COUNSEL AT 3 PLANNING GOALS. ONCE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT WHICH

[01:40:04]

CAME IN USEFUL THIS YEAR AND WE GOT IMPLEMENTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR.

SECOND WAS THE POINT AT DISTRIBUTION PLANNING WHICH OBVIOUSLY WERE GETTING INTO NOW AND III, THE EMPLOYEE WELLNESS PLAN ACT. ALL THOSE 3 ARE VERY IMPORTANT PLANNING EFFORTS WE STARTED EITHER WELL BEFORE THIS EVENT OR STARTED RIGHT BEFORE JUST LIKE THE COED AND THINGS THAT LINED UP PERFECTLY FOR THIS YEAR.

WITH THAT THE LAST FEW MONTHS UNDERSTANDING THAT THE VACCINE AVAILABILITY WILL PROBABLY OCCUR AT THE END OF THE YEAR WE STARTED PLANNING HEAVILY WITH GARMENT HEALTH AND GARLAND LBM REGARDING A GENERAL STRATEGY. OUR OVERALL STRATEGY IS BASED ON AN ASSUMPTION THAT THE DISTRIBUTION WILL BE BASED IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR WITH 90 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION BEING RECEIVING VACCINATION THROUGH PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS. THE RESET ASSUMPTION OF THE COVID-19 TESTING PERCENTAGES WE SAW EARLY ON IN THE EVENT. SECONDARY DISTRIBUTION WILL FALL UPON PUBLIC DISTRIBUTION SITES WITH ROUGHLY 10 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION BEING COVERED BY THIS METHOD. WE'VE BEEN COURTING FOR VALID HEALTH HOWEVER COUNTY AND STATE SITES ARE POSSIBLE. NEXT. WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR ONLY PROVIDERS REGISTERED TO THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF STATE HEALTH SERVICES CAN RECEIVE AND ADMINISTER COVID-19 VACCINE IN TEXAS. IN A FACILITY LICENSED TO PROCESS OR ADMINISTER VACCINE OR PROVIDE VACCINATION SERVICES ELIGIBLE TO ENROLL AS A COVID-19 VACCINE PROVIDER. COVID-19 VACCINES AND LITTLE KIDS THAT CONTAIN SUPPLIES WILL BE DISTRIBUTED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AT NO COST TO ENROLL PROVIDERS AND PROVIDERS MUST ADMINISTER VACCINE REGARDLESS OF THE VACCINE RECIPIENT'S ABILITY TO PAY VACCIN ADMINISTRATION FEES. ONE GOAL WE HAVE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS IS TO REACH OUT TO POTENTIAL PROVIDERS IN THE CITY WITH THE GOAL OF ACHIEVING 100 PERCENT REGISTRATION IN THE CITY AND STATES PROGRAM. NEXT. THIS NEXT SLIDE IS A PUBLIC FACING SITE WHERE YOU CAN SEE WHO WERE THE PROVIDERS ARE IN THE CITY WHO HAVE REGISTERED.

SEVERAL ARE IN PROGRESS. WE'VE ONLY RECEIVED 2 APPROVALS.

ONE IS PENDING APPROVAL. 2 ARE PENDING APPROVAL. WE DON'T SEE WALMART OR CVS HERE. WE HAVE THE 2 WALMARTS AND 3 CVS SITES IN THE CITY INCLUDING THE CVS STORES AND CVS TARGET OR PART OF THE PHARMACY PROGRAM.

THE FEDERAL PHARMACY PROGRAM WILLDISTRIBUTE THE VACCINE. RIGHT NOW BUT WERE DOING IS TRACKING THE CAPACITY OF THE CITY IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO BE ABLE TO HOUSE, STORE AND HANDLE THE DISTRIBUTING OF THE ULTRACOLD VACCINE, THE PFIZER VACCINE DONE THE OTHER VACCINES WERE LOOKING AT REFRIGERATION, FREEZING AND ULTRACOLD CAPACITY.

I GET HANNAH AND I WILL WORK THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS TO REACH OUT TO THE NEXT ONE OF THE BUSINESSES AND PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS OF THE CITY WHO COULD ADMINISTER A VACCINE TO ENSURE THAT THE REGISTERING IF THEY'RE ABLE TO. NEXT.

LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY ARE PART OF THE PHASE 1 A DISTRIBUTION PLAN.

ALL OF OUR FACILITIES IN THE CITY HAVE REGISTERED,. ALL OF THEM HAVE REGISTERED AND THEY ARE PARTNERING WITH CVS OR WALGREENS TO RECEIVE THEIR VACCINATION.

WORKING WITH FAMILY SERVICES ON A PLAN FOR THEM. HER ALSO DETERMINING THE NEED FOR BEEHIVE HOMES WHICH WE EXPECT TO OPEN SOMETIME THIS YEAR.

WHILE WORKING ON THAT AS WELL. THANKFULLY ALL OF OUR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES ARE SET UP AT THIS POINT. NEXT. OUR ROLE WILL BE TO SUPPORT OPERATION SITES OF PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT AS NEEDED. FOR ANY ROWLETT SITE I HAVE A DETAILED PLAN I WILL GO THROUGH WITH COUNSEL. ANTICIPATE THE REQUIREMENT WOULD BE THE 20 STAFF MEMBERS THAT WOULD INCLUDE PARAMEDICS TO ADMINISTER COVID-19 VACCINE, DATA ENTRY PERSONNEL, TRAFFIC CORRIDORS, POLICE OFFICERS, PUBLIC WORKS FOR SETUP AND TAKEDOWN OF THE SITES. ROWLETT OEM AND GARLAND OLEUM AND GARLAND HEALTH.

WE WILL BE OPERATING EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF GARLAND HEALTH PERSONNEL.

[01:45:02]

NEXT. IN DISCUSSING THE BEST APPROACH FOR THIS.

WE DETERMINED A DRIVE-THROUGH DISTRIBUTION PLAN WAS THE BEST VERSUS A CLOSED POD WITHIN A FACILITY. AGAIN WILL OPERATE THIS UNDER GARLAND HEALTH SUPERVISION.

GARLAND HEALTH MITHRA PRACTICE RUN IN EARLY OCTOBER WITH AN EMPLOYEE FLU CLINIC.

IT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL. WE DID LEARN SOME LESSONS FROM THAT AND WE ARE TAKING THOSE LESSONS IN OUR PLANNING EFFORTS FOR POSSIBLE COVID-19 DISTRIBUTION.

AGAIN, WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT WITH GARLAND HEALTH FOR THESE SERVICES.

TAXIS IS ALSO PART OF THAT. IN DISCUSSING OUR STRATEGY WE'VE AGREED TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER AS WE'VE DONE THROUGH THIS EVENT AND ANY VACCINE EFFORTS.

GENERALLY SPEAKING LOOKING AT A 2 LANE DISTRIBUTION, DRIVE-THROUGH DISTRIBUTION PLAN WITH 880 CARS PER DAY OPERATING 11 HOURS PER DAY. WITH THE POSSIBLE WALK-UP LANE.

HOWEVER VACCINE DISTRIBUTION OF ONLY BE BY APPOINTMENT TO BE ABLE TO EFFICIENTLY AND

EFFECTIVELY RUN THE SITES. >> NEXT SLIDE. THE SCOPE OF OPERATIONS.

WE MADE ASSUMPTIONS HOW MUCH WE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR. WITH A POPULATION OF ALMOST 69,000 BASED ON CURRENT SURVEYS, WE ANTICIPATE 60 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION BEING WILLING AND WANTING THE VACCINE.HEN FOR US TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR 10 PERCENT OF THOSE. OPERATING 11 HOURS A DAY WITH AN AVERAGE TIME OF ONE AND HALF MINUTES PER CAR WITH 2 LANES WE ANTICIPATE THE ABILITY TO MOVE THROUGH A LITTLE BIT OVER 4100 VACCINATIONS, OH SORRY WE ANTICIPATE THE NEED TO PREVENT 4100 VACCINATIONS AND BE ABLE TO DO THAT AND 880 PER DAY. ABOUT 5 DAYS TO BE ABLE TO COVER THAT POPULATION.

THAT IS THE LOW ESTIMATE. THE HIGH ESTIMATE, HIGH-LEVEL ESTIMATE WILL BE THE NEED TO PROVIDE 17,000 VACCINATIONS AND THAT WILL TAKE ABOUT 20 DAYS. NEXT SLIDE.

REGARDING ¦ REPORT THOROUGHLY WITH GARLAND OLEUM TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST FOR US TO RUN THESE SITES. TOTALS ARE THERE. ONE TIME COST INCLUDE SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT. ABOUT $93,000. THE DAILY COST FOR PERSONNEL WOULD BE JUST SHY OF 9000. TOTAL PERSONAL COST FOR 5 DAYS ABOUT 44,000 FOR 20 DAYS.

A LITTLE BIT OVER HUNDRED 75,000. IF WE WERE TO PROVIDE 4100 VACCINATIONS, SINGLE DOSE VACCINATIONS WERE LOOKING AT ABOUT 137,000.

BEFORE LOOKING AT 17,000, ONE DOES VACCINATION A LITTLE BIT OVER 268,000.

ASSUMING TO DOSE VACCINATIONS, 5 DAYS EACH LOOKING AT $181,000 AND 444,000 DOLLARS FOR 20 DAYS. WE DID TRY TO COMPARE, THERE WASN'T A LOT OF INFORMATION REGARDING THE COST TO CONTRACT THIS OUT SPECIFICALLY DRIVE-THROUGH SITES.

WE LOOKED AT THE MEDICARE PAYMENT RATE AND OUR PER-PERSON COST IS FAIRLY CONSISTENT WITH WHAT THE PRIVATE SECTOR IS LOOKING OUT. SO FOR 2 DOSE VACCINATION YOU'RE LOOKING AT $45 PER PERSON FOR A SINGLE DOSE. A LITTLE BIT OVER $28 PER PERSON. NEXT SLIDE. WHAT SHOULD A RESIDENT EXPECT GOING TO THE SITE? FIRST IS A REQUIRED REGISTRATION.

THEN AN APARTMENT CLAIMANT NOTIFICATION. THEN THEY RECEIVE THEIR VACCINATION. REPORT ANY ADVERSE REACTIONS AND ALL TELL YOU WHAT VARUS NEEDS. IF IT'S A SECOND DOSE OR 2 DOSE VACCINATIONS WILL RECEIVE A REMINDER FROM US OR THE CDC OR THE STATE. BUT RECEIVE THEIR SECOND DOSE AND CONTINUE PRACTICE RECOMMENDED IN PIS.

. THIS IS A VIDEO SHOWING WHAT A DRIVE-THROUGH SITE MAY LOOK LIKE. THERE'S NO AUDIO. O AUDIO.

>> JUST A MOMENT PLEASE. >> SO HOW MANY NOTICE SHOULDN'T HAVE HER MASK OVER HER NOSE IN THE VIDEO?

[01:50:13]

VACCINE. >> WE HOPE THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF COVET.

>> DOCTOR TIFFANY IS ONE OF 15,000 MEDICAL WORKERS IN THE FIRST ROUND DISTRIBUTION.

>> IS A CHANCE FOR US TO BE ABLE TO VACCINATE AND PROTECT OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS AND OUR

FIRST RESPONDERS. >> DOZENS OF VOLUNTEERS IN PHOENIX TODAY TAKING PART IN A

PRACTICE DRILL IN THIS PARKING ON. >> THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS.

ARS WILL START HERE AND ADVANCE ONTO REGISTRATION MORE VOLUNTEERS WILL CONFIRM THEIR IDENTITY AND MAKE SURE THEY HAVE AN APPOINTMENT. THIS IS WHERE THE VACCINATIONS WILL TAKE PLACE. THE CARS WILL PULL UP THE WINDOWS WILL GO DOWN AND THEY GET A SHOT IN THE ARM JUST LIKE THEY WOULD IN THEIR DOCTOR'S OFFICE.

ENGINEERS WORKING ON TRAFFIC PATTERNS AND TIMING DOWN TO THE SECOND.

OFFICIALS HERE SAY THEY'RE PREPARED TO ADMINISTER A THOUSAND DOSES A DAY AS SOON AS THE VACCINE IS APPROVED WHICH COULD BE AS EARLY AS MID DECEMBER.

AFTER BEING VACCINATED THE POLE APPEAR TO BE ABSURD FOR 15 MINUTES TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS. IF THEY HAVE A REACTION THEY ARE TOLD TO HONK THE HORN.

>> WAS HER ANY OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION. THAT GIVES YOU AN IMPRESSION OF WHAT AN OPERATING SITE WOULD LOOK LIKE. WE IDENTIFIED SEVERAL SITES ACROSS THE CITY BOTH PRIVATE LOTS OF PUBLIC LOTS. THIS IS THE BOTTOM OF WHITE'S OWN PARKING LOT THERE. THIS IS A SAMPLE, AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT A SITE LAYOUT LOOK LIKE.

RIGHT BEFORE KIDS KINGDOM, THE BEST ABILITY FOR A VEHICLE TO A TURNAROUND, IF THEY'RE NOT REGISTERED. WE WOULD HAVE A CHECK IN SIGHT. THEN CLOSER TO THE ACTUAL VACCINATION AREA WE WILL HAVE A TRAFFIC CONTROL AREA. SO, THEN A VEHICLE WILL ENTER THROUGH THE RIGHT SIDE. EITHER BE DIRECTED TO VACCINATION 10 VACCINATION 3 SITES. OR IF THOSE 2 SITES ARE TAKEN THERE WILL BE SIGNS DIRECTING EVERYBODY EXACTLY WHERE THEY NEED TO GO. IF ANYBODY HAS GONE THROUGH A PUBLIC TESTING OR PUBLIC COVID-19 TESTING IT WOULD BE REMINISCENT OF THAT.

TRAFFIC CONES EVERYWHERE. THEY WILL BE DIRECTED. OUR STAFF WILL BE LOCATED ACROSS THIS ENTIRE SITE SEVERAL POINTS WITH A COMMAND AREA ESTABLISHED AS WELL.

ONCE EVERYBODY LEAVES AND RECEIVE THE VACCINATION THEY WILL BE ASKED TO GO TO THE WAITING AREA AND WE ASKED HAVE OFFICIAL PARKING AREA TO ALLOW FOR 15 MINUTES.

AND STILL BE ABLE TO PROCESS EVERYBODY THROUGH THE SITE TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NO CONGESTION. .

THIS IS A VERY MODULAR APPROACH. WE CAN IMPLEMENT THIS TYPE OF RIVE-THROUGH OPERATION IN SEVERAL AREAS ACROSS THE CROSS THE CITY.

ONE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT RECEIVING THE 2 DOSE VACCINATION IS THE REMINDER TO GET YOUR SECOND DOSE. WITH THOSE KIDS I MENTIONED EARLIER.

THERE WILL BE A COVID-19 VACCINATION RECORD CARD. WE DIDN'T HAVE A CLEAR COPY SO AND IT RE-CREATED ONE OF OF WHAT WE COULD FIND. SO, IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT VACCINE YOU RECEIVED. PFIZER, RETURN IT AND SO FORTH. SO YOU CAN'T MIX THE VACCINES.

IF YOU GET THE PFIZER VACCINE FOR YOUR FIRST DOSE YOU SHOULD GET THE PFIZER VACCINE FOR YOUR SECOND DOSE. I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHICH VACCINE YOU NEED TO TAKE AND WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED TO GO. NEXT. THERE IS A VACCINE TRACKING SYSTEM THAT WILL BE REQUIRED TO BE USED BY ANYBODY PROVIDING A COVID-19 VACCINE.

EVERYBODY WILL HAVE TO REGISTER THROUGH THIS. THE INFORMATION REQUIRED WILL BE THE NAME, DATE OF BIRTH AND ADDRESS. YOU CAN CONSENT TO HAVE YOUR INFORMATION STORED THERE INDEFINITELY. OR YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO SIGN A CONSENT FORM AND THE INFORMATION WILL BE XPUNGED FROM THE SYSTEM 5 YEARS AFTER RECEIVING THE VACCINATION. EVERYTHING WILL BE TRACKED THROUGH IN TRACK FOR ENSURING THE VACCINES ARE BEING DISTRIBUTED TO THE TARGETED POPULATIONS BUT, ALSO TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO MOVE VACCINE NUMBERS AROUND AS NEEDED.

NEXT. REGARDING RECORD MANAGEMENT. DOSES ADMINISTERED MUST BE SUBMITTED TO AMTRAK WITHIN 24 HOURS OF ADMINISTRATION. THAT WILL BE ADULTING EFFORT SECOND DOSE REMINDERS FROM OEM WILL BE MANAGED THE GARLAND HEALTH.

REMINDERS MAY ALSO BE ISSUED THROUGH THE STATE OR FEDERAL SYSTEMS.

[01:55:06]

THAT'S ONLY FOR 2 DOSE VACCINATIONS. FOR ADVERSE REACTIONS THERE IS A REGISTRATION FOR THAT. THE FAIR SYSTEM WILL COVER THE NEXT SLIDE IT WILL BE USED BY THE STATE. NEXT. THE VACCINE ADVANCE REPORTING IS AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM DESIGNED TO DETECT POSSIBLE SAFETY PROBLEMS WITH VACCINES.

IT RELIES ON INDIVIDUALS TO SEND THOSE REPORTS TO THE CDC AND FDA.

IT'S A VERY USER FRIENDLY WEBSITE WHERE PEOPLE CAN DO THAT.

THE OBJECTIVE IS FOR VARUS IS TO DETECT ADVERSE EVENTS, MODERATE INCREASE IN EVENTS AND IDENTIFY PATIENT RISK FACTORS FOR THESE EVENTS AND FOR THE SAFETY OF THE VACCINES.

AS EVERYTHING WAS EXPEDITED WHEN SAFETY PROTOCOLS WERE IMPLEMENTED AS NORMAL THERE IS STILL A NEED FOR CONTINUING ASSESSMENT OF THE VACCINE IN THE LONG TERM.

THE SYSTEM PROVIDES FOR ABOUT. NEXT. THAT'S ALL I HAVE FOR COUNSEL.

TONIGHT I AM SEEKING DIRECTION FROM COUNSEL ON THE TRATEGY AND ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH. WHY AM I GETTING FEEDBACK? BLAKE, YOU HAVE YOUR HAND UP?

>> YES. I'M GLAD TO SEE THAT YOU'VE PER PARROT FOR THIS ENTIRE SITUATION BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT. HOW LIKELY WILL THE CITY HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF DISTRIBUTINGTHE VACCINE AND IF WE ARE GIVEN THE OPTION, WOULD WE RATHER LEAVE IT TO THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO HANDLE THIS IF THERE IS ENOUGH VACCINE

DISTRIBUTION AT THAT TIME? WHAT DO YOU THINK ED? >> OUR STRATEGY IS TO RELY ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR. AS WE SAW WITH COVID-19 TESTING SOME OF THE MAY FOLLOWED US.

AS YOU RECALL WERE GIVEN THE RESPONSIBILITY, ARE FAR DIFFERENT ACROSS THE ROOM THERE'S NO WAY TO KNOW. IT COULD CHANGE IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

OVER TRY TO DO IS PREPARE. WE CAN'T NOT PREPARE AND BE CAUGHT OFFGUARD.

IT WILL TAKE 2 MONTHS AT LEAST TO FINALIZE OUR PLANNING EFFORTS.

SO, WE HAVE TO ASSUME WERE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT AND THAT'S THE APPROACH WERE TAKEN.

JASON, ANY COMMENTS ON THAT? >> WELL, I GUESS MY ESTIMATION IS THAT IT'S ALMOST INEVITABLE SLEEP WILL DO SOME DRIVE-THROUGH EVENTS. WHAT I CALL SMALL-SCALE DRIVE-THROUGH EVENTS WHICH IS WHAT ED JUST DESCRIBED. WE CAN DO PROBABLY UPWARDS OF A THOUSAND RESIDENTS A DAY. I THINK IT'S FAIRLY UNLIKELY AND I CERTAINLY HOPE WE DON'T HAVE TO DO A LARGE-SCALE EVENT WHICH WILL BE A LARGE VENUE LIKE A FOOTBALL STADIUM AND PERHAPS VACCINATE SEVERAL THOUSAND PEOPLE A DAY. I CERTAINLY HOPE WE DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT. WERE PREPARING FOR BOTH OPTIONS NO MATTER WHAT THE CASE.

ONE THING TO REMEMBER IS A YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT ABOUT 30 PERCENT OF THE POPULATION GETS A FLU SHOT. THE GOAL OF THE NATIONAL PROGRAM IS TO RELY ON THOSE PROVIDERS THAT NORMALLY GET FLU VACCINES TO PROVIDE COVID-19 VACCINES.

I THINK THERE'S GOING TO BE A GAP. I'M SURE THERE'S GONNA BE A GAP THAT WE WILL HAVE TO FILL. IT'S HARD TO SAY EXACTLY HOW BIG THAT B. THE SMALLER THE

BETTER FOR SURE. >> ONE OTHER QUESTION IS WHEN IT COMES TO THE CITY OPERATIONS. IS THERE A PLAN FOR INTERNAL DISTRIBUTION AND WHAT GROUP IS GOING TO GET THAT FIRST? I WOULD ASSUME PUBLIC SAFETY WOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET THE VACCINE BEFORE ANY OTHER DEPARTMENT? DO YOU HAVE ANY INTEL ON THAT

ED? >> WE WILL WORK WITH OUR PERSONAL THROUGH GARLAND HEALTH TO DEVELOP A PLAN. PUBLIC SAFETY WILL BE FIRST. WILL START SOLICITING IT.

[02:00:06]

FOR THIS I WANT TO BE VACCINATED AND THEN THE DISEASE WILL VACCINATE THOSE FOLKS FIRST. WORKING ON THAT PLAN. WE BEEN WORKING WITH GARLAND HEALTH AND WITHIN TO MAKE SURE WERE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE ON THIS DEPLOYMENT WHEN IT COMES

TO THIS PASS. >> ALL RIGHT, THAT'S IT. THANK YOU.

>> BROWNIE? >> I'VE GOT A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY CAN ANSWER EITHER ONE OF THEM. I WORKED IN INSURANCE.

A VERY FAMILIAR WITH HIPAA. I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS AFFAIRS VACCINE.

ADVERSE EFFECTS. WOULD WE BE HEARING ABOUT SOME OF THE ADVERSE EFFECTS? I KNOW WE WON'T BE HEARING IT, MATT HAD A PROBLEM WITH HIS VACCINE.

WILL WE HEAR GENERAL ABOUT ANY OF THE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF THE VACCINE?

>> I THINK NATIONALLY WE WILL HAVE SOME OF THAT INFORMATION. ANYTHING SPECIFIC I DON'T.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED FOR THAT. JASON, DO YOU HAVE ANY THOUGHTS

ON THAT? >> WHAT ED SAID IS EXACTLY RIGHT.

THE VARUS SYSTEM IS NOT NEW. T'S SOMETHING WE'VE USED IN OUR IMMUNIZATION CLINIC FOR DECADES. IT'S DESIGNED TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THOSE LOWER FREQUENCY SIDE EFFECTS FROM SOME VACCINES. ANY TIME THERE'S AN ADVERSE REACTION TO ANY VACCINE WHETHER PIT'S A FLU VACCINE A COVID-19 VACCINE THAT INFORMATION IS ENTERED INTO THE VARUS SYSTEM. AND OVER TIME AS THAT SYSTEM ACCUMULATES DIFFERENT ADVERSE REACTIONS MANUFACTURERS WILL MODIFY THEIR VACCINE INSTRUCTIONS, ADD CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH A PARTICULAR MEDICAL ISSUE I HAVE IN COMMON REACTIONS TO VACCINE. WHAT ED SAYS IS RIGHT. THERE WON'T BE ANY LOCAL SITUATION. IT'S REALLY A NATIONAL SYSTEM OF THAT INFORMATION IS DIGESTED

BY THE CDC AND PASSED ON TO THE MANUFACTURERS. >> OKAY.I'M JUST ASKING BECAUSE OF MY AGE. I'M CONCERNED. NOT SO CONCERNED ABOUT IT I REALLY WANT TO TAKE THE VACCINE. I'M CONCERNED TO SEE IF ANYONE IS HAVING EFFECTS THAT I DON'T NEED TO BE HAVING. MY SECOND QUESTION ED WAS ABOUT THE 2 SHOTS. I NOTICED THE FIRST ONE WAS $16 IN CHANGE OF THE SECOND ONE WAS 28 AND CHANGE. IS THERE A DIFFERENCE IN THOSE 2 SHOTS OR DIFFERENCE IN THE

VACCINE ITSELF? IT'S JUST AN ODD EXPENSE. >> WAS JUST THE NUMBER PROVIDED TO US. WHAT'S THE MAXIMUM YOU CAN BILL MEDICARE FOR FOR ANY INSURED

PERSON. >> OKAY, COOL. >> MIGHT BE THE STORAGE TIME

WHO KNOWS. IS THAT IT BROWNIE? >> YES, THANK YOU.

>> WHILE I WAIT AND SEE IF ANYONE ELSE HAS ANY QUESTIONS. ONE OF THE PERFECT STORM TRACY COMING DOWN ONE OF MANY, RIGHT? IT'S THE ESSENTIAL WORKER CATEGORY.

IF YOU CAN VACCINATE YOUR TEACHERS AT YOUR PLACE OF WORK YOU CAN ISOLATE YOUR TEACHERS AND YOU CAN VACCINATE YOUR POLICE OFFICERS AND FIREFIGHTERS, THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF ESSENTIAL WORKERS. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THAT'S GOING TO WORK.

BEING SEPARATED OUT FROM THE REST OF THE POPULATION. ANY COMMENTS?

>> JASON I'LL PROBABLY WANT YOU TO COMMENT ON THAT. AS FAR AS WHO GETS A VACCINE.

THE STATE WILL PROVIDE A LOT OF CLEAR GUIDANCE ON THAT. THE FLEXIBILITY WE HAVE IS REALLY MORE INTERNAL WITH OUR OWN PERSONNEL. I'VE NO IDEA ABOUT DECISION-MAKING WILL PAN OUT. AGAIN WITH ONLY GONE THROUGH FEES WHEN A.

>> ARE NOT EVEN NECESSARILY TALKING ABOUT THE DECISION-MAKING.

I THINK MAKING A DECISION THE TEACHERS ARE PRETTY HIGH ON THE PRIORITIES IS AN EASY THING.

BUT, THIS COULD BE LOTS OF OTHER ESSENTIAL WORKERS AND HOW YOU VALIDATE THAT SOMEONE IS AN ESSENTIAL WORKER TO ME JUST SEEMS LIKE A VERY PROBLEMATIC PROCESS.

WE MIGHT GET CAUGHT UP IN A LOT OF ADMINISTRATION THAT WASTES A LOT OF TIME.

I DON'T KNOW. IT WORRIES ME. ESSENTIAL WORKERS WORRIES ME AS FAR AS ADMINISTRATION OF THE PROGRAM. JASON?

>> WELL, I SHARE THAT SAME CONCERN. I GUESS THE ONE THING I WILL SAY IS THE PRIORITIZATION LIST. I WOULD CONSIDER THAT FLUID. IT HAS CHANGED.

THE MONTH OF DECEMBER I EXPECT WILL CONTINUE TO CHANGE. PROBABLY NOT DRASTICALLY.

[02:05:03]

I THINK IT IS STILL TO CERTAIN DEGREE FLUID. WHAT WERE EXPECTING AND I DON'T KNOW THIS WILL NECESSARILY ADDRESS YOUR CONCERNS SPECIFICALLY.

WHAT WE EXPECT IS AS VACCINES BECOME AVAILABLE FOR US TO ORDER WE EXPECT SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT PARTY GROUP THOSE VACCINES GO TO. AS YOU SAID, FIRE AND POLICE THOSE ARE EASY TO IDENTIFY OR EVEN ADMINISTRABLE WORKERS. WORKERS FOR PRIVATE ELECTRIC COMPANIES, ENCORE, ATLAS. THIS GETS HARDER. QUITE FRANKLY I'VE THOUGHT ABOUT THAT SAME CONCERN AND I DON'T HAVE A VERY GOOD ANSWER OTHER THAN I SUSPECT WERE GOING TO GET SPECIFIC GUIDANCE FROM THE STATE AS VACCINES BECOME AVAILABLE FOR THOSE GROUPS.

>> YEAH. WE JUST WENT ON THIS ROAD AND IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY THIS PERSON IS AN ESSENTIAL WORKER IN THIS MORNING'S NOT. AGAIN, I DO THINK THERE'S CATEGORIES. TEACHERS NEED TO BE VACCINATED. IT'S PRETTY EASY TO ISOLATE A TEACHER AND GET A GARLAND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT ID. I JUST THINK, IT BECOMES A VERY BIG ADMINISTRATIVE NIGHTMARE. WALMART IS AN ESSENTIAL WORKER THAT HAS PRIORITY BUT, YOU KNOW, MACY'S IS NOT. WHATEVER THE CATEGORY IS. WE COULD JUST BARELY GET CAUGHT UP IN AN ADMINISTRATIVE NIGHTMARE. THERE IS BIGGER AND SMARTER

PEOPLE TO MEET THAT ARE TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT. >> SOMEWHERE, MY HOPE BASED ON SOME OF THE CALLS I MET ON HIS OUT A LOT OF THESE COMPANIES WILL HANDLE THEIR OWN EMPLOYEES. IN PROVIDE THAT DISTRIBUTION INTERNALLY.

I HOPE THAT'S NOT A CHALLENGE. IT'S EASIER TO ADMINISTER THIS PROGRAM WITH A REQUIREMENT OF ONLY 65 YEARS AND OLDER. OU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT WITH PESSENTIAL WORKERS.

BASED ON A LOT OF THIS WILL FALL ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR AND THE HOPE IS THAT SOME COMPANIES ESPECIALLY THE BIG ONES, WALMART WILL TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN EMPLOYEES SINCE THEY ARE

ONE OF THE PHARMACY PARTNERS. THAT'S THE HOPE. >> WILL THERE BE A MARKET FOR FAKE IDS FOR 61-YEAR-OLDS? JUST SAYING.

I WANT ON THAT LIST. I WANT TO VACCINE. OKAY, ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

>> I COULD SAY CABRAL MY ID. >> WOULD LOOK SO MUCH ALIKE. >> MAYER, JUST A COMMENT FOR ME. I BELIEVE WHAT I THINK ED AND JASON AND THEIR GROUP.

GUYS, THIS IS EXTRAORDINARY AMOUNT OF WORK THEY PUT TOGETHER AND I APPRECIATE ED'S COMMENTS EARLIER THAT THIS IS IT JUST A COMBINATION OF THE LAST 2 EEKS.

THE PLANNING PARTICULARLY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, GARLAND HEALTH.

SEVERAL YEARS OF PLANNING TO GET TO THIS STAGE. NOT KNOWING IF WE WOULD EVER NEED THIS KIND OF WORK. DOING THIS KIND OF ANALYSIS BEHIND THE SCENES PREPARING FOR SUCH AN EMERGENCY IS JUST, IT REALLY DOES THE QUALITY AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND THE REAL CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY. OUR MUTUAL COMMUNITIES. GARLAND AND SEXY AND RELEVANT.

I KNOW OEMS DO THIS TO. I LOOK BACK AT THE 2015 TORNADO AND THE PREPARATION AND TRAINING WE DID EVEN BEFORE THAT EVENT. AND APPRECIATE THE THE WORK AND I TOLD HANNAH THAT WHEN SHE JOINED US THAT SHE WAS GOING TO BE WORKING FOR GION.

ED, THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR WORK IN THIS. WE ARE IN GREAT HANDS.

WE WILL GET ALL THE DETAILS SORTED OUT. THANK YOU SIR.

>> THANK YOU BRIAN. >> ABSOLUTELY. I WOULD AGREE WITH ALL THOSE COMMENTS AND ALL OF CITY COUNCIL WOULD 2. THANK GOODNESS WE HAD YOU TO LEAD US AND CHIEF HOWARD AND ND ED ND MARLON. WERE SO APPRECIATIVE OF EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE.

ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO SAY IS IT FEELS LIKE WERE AT THE START OF THE END.

I AM REALLY WORRIED ABOUT THAT. IT'S GOING TO BE SEVERAL MORE MONTHS BEFORE THE GENERAL POPULACE GETS THIS VACCINE. OUR HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE AT ALL-TIME HIGH.

OUR MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ARE EXHAUSTED. AND OVERWHELMED.

[02:10:04]

AND WERE AT THE HEIGHT OF THIS INFECTION RIGHT NOW. SO, WERE GOING TO REALLY HAVE TO WORK TO COMBAT THIS FAMILY LIFE. WERE AT THE END WE COLLECT ON OUR GUARD BECAUSE WE'VE GOT SEVERAL MORE MONTHS OF VERY IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS OF WEARING MASKS, SOCIAL DISTANCING AND WASHING HANDS. WHENEVER WE CAN RELAY THOSE MESSAGES AND CERTAINLY PORTRAYED THOSE PRACTICES IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

>> THANK YOU, ANYTHING ELSE COUNCIL BEFORE WE TAKE A SHORT BREAK BEFORE WE GET TO THE

REGULAR MEETING. >> CONSULTANT GET HANNAH AN OFFICE.

SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE'S IN A STORAGE ROOM. >>.

THANK YOU ED. WELCOME ABOARD ANNAH. THANK YOU JASON.

LET'S TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT THE CONSENTS AGENDA. ANYBODY HAVE ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING PULLED FOR CONSIDERATION? YOU KNOW WHAT, ED, ARE YOU

STILL HERE? >> YES. >> I MEANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE MESSAGE BOARDS THAT'S A CONSENT AGENDA ITEM. CAN WE TAKE A SECOND TO TALK ABOUT THOSE? WHAT ARE THOSE, WHERE YOU PUT THEM AND HOW ARE WE GONNA USE

THEM AFTER COVID-19? >> ONE THING AS YOU'RE AWARE HELP LEAD THE EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM AND ONE REQUEST WE'VE RECEIVED NONSTOP IS FOR THESE MESSAGE BOARDS AT THESE TESTING SITES. EARLY ON WE IDENTIFIED AS A POTENTIAL NEED FOR ANY DRIVE-THROUGH VACCINATION. LOOKING AT THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE GARLAND EMPLOYEE FLU CLINIC THAT WAS ONE MAJOR ITEM THAT WAS REQUIRED. I REQUESTED 3 MESSAGE BOARDS.

2 WILL BE RIGHT ON TO HELP TO GUIDE TRAFFIC INTO AND OUT OF THE SITE.

THE OTHER ONE WILL BE FOR INTERNAL SITE USE TO HELP DIRECT TRAFFIC WITHIN THE SITE.

THE MESSAGE BOARDS WERE LOOKING AT THOSE THAT ARE DESIGNED TO BE VERY MOBILE.

WE MAY HAVE TO HELP SUPPORT THE GARLAND OR SATURDAY SITES WITH THE BOARDS.

IT'S A VERY HOT COMMODITY AS I MENTIONED IN THE STAFF REPORT. THE MESSAGE BOARD AND OTHER CITIES ACROSS THE US ARE PURCHASING THEM. AFTER COVID-19 THESE ARE THE BOARDS THAT WE USE IN P WORD THAT WE SPREAD ACROSS THE REGION FOR RAPID EMPLOYMENT AFTER A DISASTER. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE AS A RESOURCE TO US.

I WOULD WAIT FOR GARY TO TALK IN MORE DETAIL ABOUT THAT AS FAR AS HOW PUBLIC WORKS WILL UTILIZE THEM.> IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT WECAN PUT IT ON THE ENDS OF THE TOWN AND USE THEM AS MESSAGE BOARDS LIKE WE DID THE ONE IN FRONT OF CITY HALL.

ON A PERMANENT BASIS? >> NO MA'AM. THESE ARE THE KIND OF DIGITAL BOARDS YOU SEE A LOT OF TIMES IN THESE PROJECTS. THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE IN

FRONT OF CITY HALL. >> I DIDN'T KNOW IF THERE WERE SOME DUAL-PURPOSE EAT WE COULD

POSSIBLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF. >> I BET AARON NOW OR ANGIE WOULD'VE LOVED THEM FOR TRICK-OR-TREAT.OR 4TH OF JULY OR SPECIAL EVENTS THEY WOULD COME IN SO HANDY.

>> OKAY. THOSE WILL BE PURCHASE WITH KAREN'S FUNDING.

IS THAT CORRECT? >> YES. >> OKAY, THANK YOU.

[4. DISCUSS CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS]

I DON'T NEED IT PULLED JUST HAVE THOSE QUESTIONS. THANK YOU.

ANY ITEMS ON THE CONSENT AGENDA. ANYBODY NEEDS ANYTHING PULLED FOR CONSIDERATION SQUEAK.
