SORRY, I TOOK OFF WITHOUT LAURA. NEXT SLIDE.

AS WE ALL KNOW THE COVERT PANDEMIC HAS WREAKED A HABIT ACROSS THE WORLD AND CREATED FINANCIAL UNCERTAINTY ACROSS THE GLOBE. AS YOU MOVE INTO THE PANDEMIC IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF THE FISCAL YEAR WE EXPECTED TO SEE A STEEP DECLINE IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE ANNUAL ãREVENUES THAT WOULD BE APPARENT IN THIS FISCAL YEAR END FINANCIAL REPORT. ACCORDINGLY AT THE APRIL 15 COUNSEL MANY OF THE CITY MANAGER PRESENTED A COUNCIL APPROVED THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ROWLETT COVID-19 FINANCIAL STRATEGY PLAN TO WHETHER THE PANDEMIC RELATED SHORTFALLS. THE GOOD NEWS IS FORTUNATELY LET'S FINANCIAL STATEMENT HE WITHSTOOD THE PRESSURE OF THE PANDEMIC AND AS A RESULT OF A POSITIVE FINANCIAL CONDITION THROUGH III QUARTER AND THEN ON THROUGH JULY 2020 COUNCIL APPROVED THE CITY MANAGER'S RECOMMENDATION ON AUGUST 18 TO REINSTATE THE MAJORITY OF THE PLANS RESTRICTED BUDGET. AFTER KICKING OFF WITHOUT WE'VE GOT SOME HEALTHY FINANCIAL NEWS TO REPORT TONIGHT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. ON A BUDGETARY BASIS THE CITY IS REPORTING REVENUES OF APPROXIMATELY $116 MILLION FOR THE FISCAL YEAR EXCEEDING THE PBUDGET BY 5.3 MILLION OR 4.8 PERCENT. I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE 3.3 MILLION OF THIS AMOUNT REPRESENTS RECEIPTS FROM THE FEDERALS CHARACTER PROVIDE ASSISTANCE TO RELEVANT WITNESSES AND BITS AND OWNERS AND REIMBURSE THE CITY FOR THE NECESSARY PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND ELIGIBLE PERSONAL COST RELATED TO THE COVID-19 PPANDEMIC RESPONSE. THE CITY IS REPORTING EXPENSES OF 107 MILLION FOR THE FISCAL YEAR WHICH IS 2.7 MILLION OR 2.4 PERCENT BELOW BUDGET. PRIMARILY DUE TO THE PANDEMIC IMPACT OPERATIONS IN THE FINANCIAL STRATEGY PLAN BUDGET FREEZES L YEAR.

WITHIN TONIGHT'S PRESENTATION I WILL GO A BIT MORE IN DEPTH INTO THE OVERALL REVENUE AND EXPENSE RESULTS OVER TO MAJOR FUNDS. THE GENERAL FUND AND THE UTILITY FUND. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. PROPERTY TAXES REPRESENT OVER 50 PERCENT OF THE GENERAL FUND REVENUE AND BUDGET AND COLLECTED PRIMARILY IN JUMPER AND JANUARY. THE CITY COLLECTED 175,000 GENERAL FUND PROPERTY TAX REVENUE IN THE LAST QUARTER OF THE FISCAL YEAR. WITH HEREIN PROPERTY TAX REVENUE EXCEEDING A BUDGET BY 286,000 OR APPROXIMATELY 1.1 PERCENT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. SALES TAXES ARE COLLECTED BY THE STATE COMPTROLLER REPRESENT ALMOST 20 PERCENT OF THE GENERAL FUND REVENUES. THE CITY COLLECTED 1.9 MILLION

[00:05:04]

IN THE 4TH QUARTER WITH URINE SALES TAX REVENUE EXCEEDING THE BUDGET BY 65,000 OR JUST UNDER ONE PERCENT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. OVERALL, GENERAL FUND REVENUES WERE 272,000 ABOVE BUDGET. WE WERE AWARE OF RCC AND UP ITS OWN REVENUES WOULD BE IMPACTED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. OUR SEAT MEMBERSHIP, FACILITY RENTALS, ATHLETIC AND OTHER PROGRAM WITH THE MOST IMPACTED AT THE RCC AND WHITESTONE REVENUE WAS HIGHLY IMPACTED ALL AROUND IN A VERY LIMITED HOURS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THE GENERAL FUND HAD 2 AREAS OF REVENUES THAT WERE ABOVE BUDGET AND REALLY PULLED US THROUGH THE FISCAL YEAR.

THOSE WILL BUILDING PERMITS AND PROPERTY TAX REVENUES. THE CITY BUDGET A PROPERTY TAX COLLECTION RATE OF 98.5 PERCENT HOWEVER, WE EXPERIENCED 99.4 PERCENT COLLECTION RATE THIS YEAR RESULTING IN HIGHER PROPERTY TAX REVENUES BUDGETED. ADDITIONALLY, PERMIT REVENUES WERE HIGHER THAN ANTICIPATED PRIMARILY DUE TO THE TIMING OF A LARGE DEVELOPMENT, THE PILOT STATION. JOURNAL FUND EXPENSES WERE 1.8 MILLION BELOW BUDGET.

OF THIS 1.8 MILLION APPROXIMATELY 400,000 IS ALLOCATED TO BE PAID IN THE NEW FISCAL YEAR 21 FOR INVOICES THAT WERE NOT RECEIVED UNTIL AFTER THE YEAR AND COME INTO THE FISCAL YEAR. AS MENTIONED EARLIER MOST OF THE LITIGATION PLAN WAS REINSTATED IN AUGUST, HOWEVER A PROXIMALLY 287,000 OF DEPARTMENT OPERATING BUDGETS REMAIN RESTRICTED FOR PERMANENT SAVINGS TO ROLL INTO THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR FOR FUTURE COVID-19 MITIGATION IF THEY WERE NEEDED. OVER HALF OF THE 1.8 MILLION IN ANNUAL SAVINGS ABOUT 950,000 WAS DUE TO THE PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS ON VARIOUS CITY OPERATIONS.OCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS ON STAFF AND RESIDENTS RESULTED IN LIMITED HOURS AND CAPACITY OF OPERATIONS, RECREATION PROGRAMS, SPORT ACTIVITIES, ANIMAL ADOPTION EVENTS AND COMMUNITY EVENTS WERE CANCELED. PARK AND STREET MAINTENANCE AND SPECIAL PROJECTS WERE REDUCED.

CODE ENFORCEMENT RELIEF WAS IMPLEMENTED, EMPLOYEE TRAVEL, ALL DRASTICALLY REDUCED SCENE COST PARTICULARLY IN THE RCC ONCE OWNED A PUBLIC WORKS OPERATIONS.

IN COMBINATION OF THIS LOWER GAS PRICES AND CANCELED EMPLOYEE TRAVEL AND TRAINING LED TO LARGE ACROSS-THE-BOARD CITY WIDE SAVINGS FOR THE YEAR. WE ALSO RECOGNIZE NON-áUNTRAN5á RELATED CONTRACTUAL SAVINGS REDUCING NEED FOR SERVICES SUCH AS MOSQUITO SPRAIN SINCE WE ONLY HAD ONE APPOSITIVE TESTING OVER THE SUMMER, ENGINEERING AND IT EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE DUE TO A REFRESH OF SERVERS AND SWITCHES LAST YEAR APPROVED BY COUNSEL.

FINALLY TO BRING A PERFORMANCE OBJECT TO A CLOSE GENERAL FUND RESERVE POLICY WAS REVISED FROM 13 PERCENT TO 25 PERCENT IN FISCAL YEAR 2017 TO REFLECT MORE UPDATED STANDARDS FOR THE OPERATING RESERVE BALANCE WHICH SUPPORTS A POSITIVE BOND RATING.

I AM PLEASED TO REPORT AFTER 4 FISCAL YEARS OF GRADUALLY INCREASING OUR RESERVES WE HAVE NOW MET AND EXCEEDED OUR 25 PERCENT POLICY IN GENERAL FUND. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

MOVING ONTO THE UTILITY FUND. WATER REVENUES REPRESENT 60 PERCENT OF THE UTILITY FUND REVENUE BUDGET. THE 4TH QUARTER THEY EARNED 6.1 REVENUE WITH WATER REVENUES EXCEED THE BUDGET BY 380,000 OR APPROXIMATELY 2.1 PERCENT. PRIMARILY DUE TO LOW PRECIPITATION DURING OCTOBER. OUR FIRST MONTH OF THE FISCAL YEAR COMBINED WITH INCREASED SUMMER USAGE, LIKELY DRIVEN BY MORE RESIDENTS STAYED HOME DURING THE PANDEMIC.

THE CITY EARNED 4 MILLION SEWER FEES IN THE 4TH QUARTER WITH YEAR-END REVENUE EXCEEDING BUDGET BY 245,000 OR 1.8 PERCENT. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. OVERALL ON A BUDGETARY BASIS THE UTILITY FUND REVENUES WERE 477,000 ABOVE BUDGET DUE TO INCREASED WATER DISTRIBUTION, OFFSET BY DECREASE AND PENALTY REVENUE DURING A 5 MONTH PERIOD OF COVID-19 RELIEF PLACED ON PAST DUE ACCOUNTS. EXPENSES WERE 1.5 MILLION BELOW BUDGET AS A RESULT OF PERSONAL VACANCIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. COUPLED WITH A 5 MONTH COVID-19 HIRING FREEZE AND COVID-19 RELATED SAVINGS AND CONTRACT SERVICES TO TO REDUCE SPECIAL PROJECTS AS RESULT OF SOCIAL JUSTICE HE REQUIREMENTS EXPANDING HALF THE FISCAL YEAR. WE ALSO RECOGNIZE NON-áUNTRAN5á RELATED CONTRACTUAL SAVINGS AND REDUCE NEED FOR SERVICES SUCH AS NON- COVID-19 RELATED

PIG. >> GOOD EVENING MARY MEMBERS OF COUNSEL.

THIS EVENING HAPPY FOR YOU THE PURPOSE OF THIS AGENDA ITEM IS TO PROVIDE AN INTERIM ANNUAL UPDATE O THE AMENDED AND RESTATED SERVICE AND ASSESSMENT PLAN FOR THE BAYSIDE PID.

THE SOUTH IMPROVEMENT AREA KNOWN AS SAPPHIRE BAY. COUNSEL HAS OUTLINED IN THE STAFF REPORT THAT PID FOR BAYSIDE WAS CREATED IN SEPTEMBER 2015.

IN AUGUST 2017 COUNCIL APPROVED THE SOUTH IMPROVEMENT SERVICE AND ASSSSMENT PLAN.

SO THIS EVENING, THIS INTERIM UPDATE WAS REQUESTED BY THE MAJORITY PROPERTY OWNER WITHIN THE DISTRICT, SOUTH FIRE BAIT LANDHOLDINGS TO UPDATE THE VARIOUS BUDGET ALLOCATIONS AND ASSOCIATED ACTUAL COST AND EXPENSES WITHIN THOSE BUDGET CATEGORIES.HIS EVENING THE CITY'S PID ADMINISTRATOR JOSH HART FROM UNIT HAS A SHORT PRESENTATION TO PROVIDE AN UPDATE ON THESE INTERIM CHANGES THAT THE DEVELOPER HAS ASKED FOR.ALTERNATE OVER TO JOSH TO COVER THOSE INTERIM UPDATES AND BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

JOSH? >> THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME THIS EVENING. NEXT SLIDE.

THE PURPOSE AS JIM MENTIONED OF THIS PRESENTATION AND THIS INTERIM UPDATE IS JUST TO

[00:25:01]

REVIEW AND REQUEST APPROVAL OF THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT COST BUDGET CHANGES REQUESTED BY SAPPHIRE BAY. THE LEFT-HAND COLUMN YOU CAN SEE IS LABELED BUDGET ANNUAL SERVICE PLAN UPDATE 2020 2021. THAT IS THE BUDGETED D AMOUNTS THAT WERE REVIEWED AND APPROVED AS PART OF THE SEPTEMBER EXCUSE ME AS PART OF THE ANNUAL SERVICE UPDATE IN SEPTEMBER 2020. SINCE THEN YOU CAN SEE IN THE MIDDLE COLUMN UPDATED BUDGET THOSE OF THE PROPOSED BUDGET CHANGES REQUESTED BY SAPPHIRE BAY AND THE DIFFERENTIAL BETWEEN THE 2 IN THE MIDDLE COLUMN. YOU CAN SEE THERE'S APPROXIMATELY A $13 MILLION INCREASE IN THAT BUDGET. BEFORE I GO INTO DETAIL AS TO THAT INCREASE THERE ARE 2 VERY IMPORTANT ITEMS I JUST WANTED TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION REGARDING THIS REQUEST AND THE PROPOSED INCREASE TO THE BUDGET.

THE FIRST WOULD BE EVEN THOUGH THERE'S AN INCREASE DUE TO THE NATURE OF HOW THOSE INCREASES ARE PROPOSED TO BE FUNDED THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE AN INCREASE IN ASSESSMENTS TO THE PROPERTY IN THE SOUTH IMPROVEMENT AREA. THERE'S NOT ANYTHING BEING REQUESTED FOR AN ADDITIONAL LEVY OF ASSESSMENTS THAT WILL BE ULTIMATELY PASSED ON TO FUTURE LANDHOLDERS.

IT WAS ORIGINALLY IN PLACE WILL NOT BE INCREASING. SECOND, THERE IS NO INCREASE OR CHANGE OR IMPACT TO THE ANNUAL OPERATION BUDGET FOR THE PID THAT WAS APPROVED AS PART OF THAT SEPTEMBER 2020 UPDATE. THOSE AMOUNTS ARE PREVIOUSLY BILLED TO PROPERTY OWNERS SO THOSE AMOUNTS ARE NOT IMPACTED BY ANY CONSIDERATION WITH THIS REPORT THIS EVENING.

GOING INTO THE NUMBERS A LITTLE BIT. IN THE BUDGET REVISION:YOU CAN SEE THAT THE INCREASE MAINLY THE ROADWAY WATER THE STORM SEWER IMPROVEMENTS HAVE THE ACTUAL COST BEING SUBMITTED WERE HIGHER THAN THE ORIGINAL ESTIMATES WHICH LED TO THE INCREASE IN THE BUDGET. ALSO THERE WERE SOME ADDITIONAL PROJECTS THAT WERE NOT ORIGINALLY CONSIDERED. TEXT.BRIDGE ENHANCEMENTS THAT INCREASE THE BUDGET BY $1 MILLION. HOWEVER THAT WILL BE IN FUNDED BY ACCRUED INTEREST THAT WAS EARNED ON THE FUNDS THAT ARE HELD BY THE TRUSTEE FOR AUTHORIZED IMPROVEMENTS.

IT IS ONE COMPONENT OF HOW THE 13 MILLION TO BE FUNDED. 1 MILLION OF IT BEING ACCRUED INTEREST THAT IS ART ON THE FUNDS BEING HELD AT THE TRUSTEES.

THERE'S NO INCREASE ON THE ASSESSMENTS THERE. THEN THE OTHER MAIN ITEM AS FAR AS INCREASE IS THE LAGUNA CONSTRUCTION COST NOW SHOWING AT $12 MILLION.

IF YOU CAN GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. HERE THE HE SUMMARY OF THE PROPOSED UPDATED BUDGET NUMBERS. YOU CAN SEE IN THE LEFT-HAND COLUMN AT THOSE AMOUNTS THAT ARE TO BE FUNDED THROUGH THE PID.

AND THEN WE ADDED A SUBSEQUENT THIRD-PARTY OWNER WHICH REPRESENTS SO I FIRE BAIT IN THE DEVELOPER CONTRIBUTION. ORIGINALLY THE BUDGET WAS $26.1 MILLION.

$13 MILLION INCREASE FROM 1 MILLION IS COVERED THROUGH ACCRUED INTEREST AND $12 MILLION IS FUNDED AND DEVELOPER FUNDS. AGAIN NO INCREASE IN THE ASSESSMENT. NEXT SLIDE. JUST TO CLOSE, NO ADDITIONAL ASSESSMENT FROM THE PID PERSPECTIVE. THAT'S IMPORTANT FOR FUTURE PROPERTY OWNERS SO THAT LAND DOES NOT HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL ASSESSMENT BURDEN.

THE AMOUNTS ARE PREVIOUSLY APPROVED BY COUNCIL ARE NOT CHANGING AS FAR AS THE ANNUAL AMOUNTS BILLED TO PROPERTY ONERS. THERE ARE NO SUBDIVISION UPDATES OR DEVELOPMENT PLAN CHANGES TO BE INCLUDED AS PART OF THIS REPORT AND NO PREPAYMENTS IN THE SOUTH IMPROVEMENT AREA AS OF THE DATE OF THIS REPORT.ITH THAT I'LL BE HAPPY TO HELP TRY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. THANK YOU AGAIN.

>> SO, ARE Y'ALL GETTING FEEDBACK? OR IS IT JUST ME?

[00:30:02]

>> YES YOU'RE GETTING FEEDBACK MAYOR. >> YOU ARE? ALBEIT IN SECOND. THE AMOUNT FOR THE LAGOON THAT WAS ORIGINALLY IN THE PID ORIGINAL FUNDING NOT THE NEW WAS THE 7779. WAS I CORRECT?

>> NO MA'AM. THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT BUDGETED WOULD BE THE NUMBER TO THE LEFT

OF IT. THE $4.2 MILLION. >> OVER THE 42+31.

OKAY. >> YES MA'AM. >> I'M SORRY, YOU'RE RIGHT.

OKAY, THANK YOU. I GUESS GO AHEAD AND PULL THE PRESENTATION DOWN SO I CONCEIVE ANYBODY ELSE HAS QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS. DO WE HAVE AN APPLICANT HERE?

>> MAYOR ADULT BELIEVE THE APPLICANT IS ON THE LINE THIS EVENING.

>> OKAY. SO COUNCILS WHAT QUESTIONS DO YOU ALL LL AVE? ALRIGHT I'M NOT SEEN ANY QUESTION SO ALL HAVE A MOTION. COUNCILMAN?

>> GUESS WHAT YOU GET TO MAKE ALL THE MOTIONS GOING FORWARD. >> YOU READ GOOD.

>> I READ GOOD? >> TO HAVE A SECOND FROM COUNCILMAN CHERYL?

>> I SECOND. >> I'M SORRY? >> SUCK AT WHAT HE READ.

>> ANY DISCUSSION? RONNIE, DO YOU STILL HAVE HER HAND UP.

DO YOU HAVE ANY DISCUSSION? I WILL MAKE A COMMENT. I'M NOT GOING TO VOTE IN FAVOR OF THIS MOTION. IN THE RECENT BEING THAT I DO I DO NOT REMOVE $4.2 MILLION PER LAGOON FUNDING WITH THE ORIGINAL SOURCES OF THE PID. INTO THE ADDITIONAL SOURCES.

I THINK IT'S VERY ORTANT WE PUT TOGETHER THIS PLAN TO HAVE THE LICENSEE B+ 4.2 MILLION OF THE LAGOON FUNDED THROUGH THE PID. AMOUNT OF FAVOR OF THIS BUDGET ADJUSTMENT.

WITH THAT BEING SAID I AM TOTALLY ON BOARD WITH THE PLAN AND EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON WITH SAPPHIRE BAY AND THE OVERALL PLAN. I'M VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE DEVELOPMENT AND THE PROCESS AND WHERE WERE AT IN THE ENTIRE PROCESS.

I JUST DO NOT WANT TO SUPPORT MOVING THIS BUDGET OF 4.2 MILLION.

AND OLD RELIC ROAD ARE CONSIDERED TO BE SUBSTANDARD UNDIVIDED ASPHALT ROADWAYS.

HOWEVER THE 2015 MASTER LAND DOES DESIGNATE THESE 2 ROADWAYS AS TYPE C'S WHICH IS 2 LANES UNDIVIDED STREETS HAVING 30 FEET OF CONCRETE PAVEMENT WITH. OLD RELIC ROAD IS A RESIDENTIAL ROADWAY. THIS DISCUSSES MORE TRAFFIC CONSIDERATIONS.

ONE OF THE IMPLICATIONS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT AS IT RELATES TO THESE ROADWAYS.

RELIC DEVELOPMENT REQUIRES THERE HAVE SUBSTANDARD ROADWAYS.

HOWEVER CURRENTLY VARSITY FUNDS ARE TARGETED FOR OTHER CITY PROJECTS.

THE CITY WOULD RATHER THAN DEPOSIT THEIR SHARE OF THE CONSTRUCTION PRICE IT YIELDS $530,000 TO BE ESCROW FOR BOTH THE IMPROVEMENTS TO BIG A ROAD AND OLD ROWLETT ROAD.

DRAINAGE CONSIDERATIONS. AS YOU CAN SEE THE PROPOSED EVOLVEMENT SITS AT THE TOP OF THE WATERSHED. THE SEE THE PROPOSED DETENTION FACILITY THERE AND THE DRAINAGE ASSOCIATED WITH OFF AND RUNOFF ASSOCIATED WITHOUT. IT'S FROM THE SITE AND WOULD ENTERED THROUGH LIBERTY CREEK DRAINAGE SYSTEM. PROPOSED SITE AS A MENTIONED DOES INCLUDE A 5.8 ACRE DETENTION POND TO DISCHARGE FROM THE SITE TO CREATE THE RUNOFF RATE. PROPOSED PROJECT IS UNLIKELY TO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT TO THE LIBERTY CREEK AND THE DOWNSTREAM CREEK. SOME OF THE PD CONSIDERATIONS AS IT RELATES TO MODIFICATIONS TO THE RTC ARE. THE APPLICANT IS ASKING 5 MODIFICATIONS. ONE IS LOCATED TO BUILDING LENGTHS.

THEY REQUIRE MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS TO HAVE A LENGTH NOT TO EXCEED HUNDRED AND 60 FEET.

THIS INSTANCE THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING FOR BUILDING ONE 219 FEET IN LENGTH ALONG OLD ROWLETT ROAD AND HUNDRED AND 93 ALONG BIG A ROAD.UILDINGS 3, 4, 5, 6 AND 773 FEET IN LENGTH.

THE INTENT OF THIS REQUIREMENT IS TO ENSURE THAT WE DON'T HAVE FLAT FACED BUILDINGS THAT IS PROVIDED WITHIN THE ARCHITECTURE. THERE WILL BE SUFFICIENT ARTICULATION TO AVOID A CONTINUOUS BUILDING FAC'ADE TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS STILL VIGIL ARCHITECTURAL INTEREST WITHIN THESE FAC'ADES. MINIMUM TOOLING UNIT AREA HAS A MINIMUM AREA OF 700 SQUARE FEET FOR EVERY MULTIFAMILY UNIT. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A REDUCTION IN THAT TO A MINIMUM OF 608 SQUARE FEET. THE JUSTIFICATION ASSOCIATED

[00:45:02]

WITH THIS IS THAT THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT ADDS DIVERSITY TO THE UNIT MIX AND FURTHERS THE GOAL OF PROVIDING AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN OUR CITY. III DEVIATION FROM THE RELATIVE ELEMENT CODE IS THE MAXIMUM BUILDING HEIGHT. IT'S CLEARLY A CHICLET DIMENSIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR BUILDING HEIGHTS WHICH IS 35 FEET OR 2 STORIES.

APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 49 FEET OR 4 STORIES.

FOR THOSE BUILDINGS FRONTING THE BIG A ROAD AND OLD ROLL OUT ROAD.

THE REQUESTING A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 39 FEET OVER 3 STORIES FOR THE 6 CENTRAL MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS. ALL THE BUILDINGS ARE FOR 2 STORIES IN HEIGHT ARE NEARLY 300 OR APPROXIMATELY 295 FEET FROM THE SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES TO THE EAST AND ARE AT A SIMILAR SCALE TO THE ADJACENT EVERGREEN DEVELOPMENT. TO THE NORTH.

ONE OF THE ELEMENTS THAT WE DISCUSSED WITH THE APPLICANT WAS TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT SEPARATION BETWEEN DEVELOPMENT. THIS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF THE RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT TO THE EAST. IN ADDITION THE RELEVANT DEVELOPMENT CODE REQUIRES THE PESTABLISHMENT OF INCOMPATIBILITY REFERENCE WITH ADJACENT USES.

IF YOU HAVE A USE THAT'S MORE INTENSE THAT USER IS REQUIRED TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT SEPARATION AS IN TERMS OF BUILDING SETBACK BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY IN TERMS OF GREEN SPACE AND SCREENING. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A METAL DECORATIVE FENCE IN LIEU OF A REQUIRED MASONRY WALL. THEY ARE PLANTING ONE TREE FOR EVERY 35 FEET AND 10 SHRUBS FOR EVERY 30 LINEAR FEET WHICH DOES CONFIRM WITH RTC. THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO THE EAST IS APPROXIMATE 300 FEET TO THE NEAREST POINT OF THE BUILDING. IT'S BOARDED BY THE POND AND OPEN SPACE AND WITHOUT IT'S OUR DETERMINATION THERE IS SUFFICIENT SEPARATION BETWEEN THE 2 USES. IN THE PROPOSED MECHANISMS TO SCREEN THE DEVELOPMENTS IS SUFFICIENT AS WELL. NEXT SLIDE. ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT DEVIATIONS TO THE CODE WAS ASSESSING THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS DEVELOPMENT. GREAT THOUGHT WAS GIVEN TO WHAT THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING AND AS YOU CAN SEE THERE A RECOMMENDATION WAS OVERWHELMED. ALSO TRY TO ADDRESS THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS AND THE PROPOSED REQUEST AND THE JUSTIFICATION FOR IT.

THE RELIC DEVELOPMENT CODE AS IT CURRENTLY STANDS, IT REQUIRES A TOTAL 586 PARKING SPACES. IN ADDITION THE RELIC DEVELOPMENT CODE DOES STATE PMULTIFAMILY PARKING REQUIREMENTS ARE ALLOWED AT A 10 PERCENT REDUCTION PARKING IF THERE WITHIN 300 FEET OF A TRANSIT STOP. THERE IS A LINK THAT WILL SERVICE THIS DEVELOPMENT. IF THAT 10 PERCENT WAS APPLIED TO THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS THEY WOULD REQUIRE 483 PARKING SPACES. WHICH WOULD BE 40 REDUCTION OF 49 SPACES. AFTER THAT REDUCTION AFTER THE MULTIFAMILY PARKING REDUCTION THE SITE WOULD REQUIRE A TOTAL OF 537 SPACES. 134 SPACES FOR THE MULTIFAMILY UNITS AND HUNDRED AND 3 SPACES FOR THE PROPOSED NONRESIDENTIAL USE.

AS I MENTIONED AFTER THE MULTIFAMILY PARKING REDUCTIONS REQUIREMENTS ARE 537 SPACES.

IN ADDITION THE RELIC DEVELOPMENT CODE ALSO ALLOWS MIXED USE DISTRICTS 5 PERCENT TOTAL PARKING REDUCTION TO REFLECT THE USE OF AUTOMOBILE RESILIENCE AND BASED ON THAT THAT WOULD BE A PARKING REDUCTIN OF 27 SPACES. AFTER THIS REDUCTION 510 TOTAL PARKING SPOTS AS ARE REQUIRED IN THE APPLICANT IS PROPOSING 447 SPACES.

WHICH IS STILL THE DEFICIT OF 63 PARKING SPACES. I DO WANT TO ADD AND ARTICULATE THAT THE PLANNING AND ZONING REPORT DID NOT ADDRESS THIS AS DISTINCTLY AS IT SHOULD HAVE IN THE TRANSIT REDUCTION OF 10 PERCENT WAS INADVERTENTLY EXCLUDED IN THAT DISCUSSION AT THE FINDING AND ZONING COMMISSION. THESE 2 PARAMETERS IN THE RTC TO ENABLE A REDUCTION IN PARKING. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE RTC REQUIRES MORE PARKING THAN WHAT IS UTILIZED ON ANY GIVEN DAY.

IN FACT, A LOT OF COMMUNITIES WITH THE ORDER OR MYTHS AND THEIR PARKING CURRENTS HAVE A MINIMUM REQUIREMENT. DOES A LOT OF OVER PARKED PARKING AREAS OR PARKING THAT

[00:50:12]

IS PROVIDED THAT IS NOT UTILIZED. THE NONRESIDENTIAL PARKING SPACES WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR RESIDENTS USE DURING OFF HOURS AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOOKED OUT WITH THE SITE WAS TO DETERMINE WHAT FEATURES WOULD BE COULD BE AMENDED TIES AS PART OF THE SITE TO MAKE IT A COMMUNITY AND SO FEWER PARKING SPACES WOULD ALLOW FOR MORE OPEN SPACE, AND REDUCED STORM DRAIN RUNOFF. AS PART OF THE PUBLIC NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENT 37 OF THE 200 FOOT RADIUS OF THE SITE AND 54 COURTESY NOTICES ARE SENT WITHIN THE 500 RADIUS OF THE SITE. IN TERMS OF RESPONSES, WE RECEIVED AN OPPOSITION WITHIN THE 200 FOOT NOTICE AREA 26 NOTICES AN OPPOSITION.

21 OF THOSE WERE FROM OUR EVERGREEN RESIDENCE. WE RECEIVED FOR IN FAVOR, ONE OF WHICH WAS FROM OUR EVERGREEN RESIDENCE. WE DO NOT RECEIVE A RESPONSE FROM EVERGREEN OWNERSHIP CONCERN AND SO AT THIS POINT WE'VE ONLY RECEIVED COMMENTARY FROM THE RESIDENCE. ALSO THESE TOTALS HAVE BEEN CORRECTED FROM THE REPORT AND THEY HAVE BEEN CORRECTED TO ACCURATELY REFLECT THE LOCATION OF ALL THE RESPONSE YOU CAN SEE ON THE MAP THERE. THE RESIDENCE OF EVERGREEN RECOUNTED THE 500 RADIUS BECAUSE I USE THE 500 FOOT NOTIFICATION LETTER RESPONSE FORM OPPOSED TO THE 200 FOOT RESPONSE FORMAT WE'VE CORRECTED THAT. THOSE NUMBERS WERE 6 OF OPPOSITION AND 2 IN FAVOR WITHIN THE 200 FOOT NOTIFICATION AND 38 OPPOSITION IN FAVOR OF THE 500 FOOT NOTIFICATION. WE WANTED TO PROVIDE THAT CLARITY TO YOU FOR YOURSELVES AND AUDIENCE. NEXT.

AT THAT NOVEMBER 20 MEETING, 24TH MEETING. PLANNING AND ZONING DID RECOMMEND DENIAL OF THE ZONING REQUEST. AS A RESULT A VOTE OF 3 FORCES TO THE COUNCIL WOULD BE REQUIRED FOR APPROVAL OF THE PROPOSAL.

STAFF IS RECOMMENDING THE REZONING REQUEST. 2 OF THE PD DISTRICT FOR MULTI FAMILY SUBURBAN USES AND SEE ONE DISTRICT TO ALLOW FOR MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT.

THE MIX USED OF ELEMENT DOES PROVIDE A SUITABLE TRANSITION BETWEEN THE LOWER DENSITY RESIDENTIAL USES AND HIGHER INTENSITY COMMERCIAL USES. THE PROPOSAL INCLUDES GENERAL SETBACKS AND LANDSCAPING FOR THE FAMILY FAMILY RESIDENCE AND OPPORTUNITY FOR FORMAL HOUSING.

THE PROPERTY COULD BE HELD AS A MODEL. COUNSEL, THE APPLICANT IS PRESENT THEY HAV A PRESENTATION AND I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> BEFORE WE GO TO THE APPLICANT TO HAVE QUESTIONS. >> BLINKED EVERY HAND UP?

>> CAN QUICKLY CLARIFY WHERE THE PARKING ENDS FOR THE COMMERCIAL SPACE.

>> YES, LAURA CAN WE POSSIBLY GO TO THE PRESENTATION PLEASE IF YOU DON'T MIND.

I KNOW YOU DON'T HAVE THE NUMBERS TO THE SLIDE. CAN YOU GO CLOSER TO THE TOP.

>> I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT. >> WE CAN GO ONE MORE IT WILL BE CLEAR ON ONE OF THE IMAGES.

PERFECT. AS YOU CAN SEE IF YOU LOOK AT OLD ROWLETT ROAD YOU CAN SEE WERE TRYING TO EMULATE SOME FORM BASED CODE RELATING TO BUILDINGS ONE AND 2 THAT'S A MIX USED OF ELEMENT. BEHIND THAT IT WILL SEE A GRAY SHADED AREAS AND GREEN ISLANDS AND THAT'S WHERE THE PARKING IS PROPOSED. IT IS ALL CONTAINED INTERIOR TO THE SITE AS BEST AS POSSIBLE. WITH SOME RELIEF ON BIG A ROAD FOR PARKING ON FRONTAGE STREET.

>> SOSA THE PARK IT WOULD BE RETAINED WITHIN THE GREEN AREA? >> I WAS TRYING TO COLOR-CODED FOR YOU. IF YOU LOOK, CAN YOU SEE THE GRAY STRUCTURES.

THAT'S COVERED PARKING. AND BESIDE IT IS SURFACE PARKING.

>> OKAY, GOT IT. SO THE PARKING FOR COMMERCIAL WOULD BE SHARED BY THE

MULTIFAMILY RESIDENCE, CORRECT? >> CORRECT. >> THANK YOU FOR THAT.

>> WHILE YOU'RE ON THIS SLIDE, THE MIXED USE BUILDINGS ONE AND 2. THE GROUND FLOOR ARE

[00:55:06]

CORRECT? >> CORRECT. >> THAT'S NOT LIVE WORK UNITS

THOSE ARE 100 PERCENT COMMERCIAL UNITS? >> CORRECT.

>> OKAY, THANK YOU. I CANNOT SEE WHO HAS THEIR HAND RAISED SO, SORRY, THERE'S NO

GOOD WAY TO DO THIS. MATT? >> CAN YOU GO THROUGH THE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS IN A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL AND THE WHOLE ESCROW PIECE AND WHAT THAT

HALF-MILLION WOULD PAY FOR AN ORDER TIMETABLE WOULD BE? >> OBSOLETE.

I WILL LEAN ON JEFF COHAN BECAUSE HE IS BETTER EQUIPPED AND WILL BE MORE ELOQUENT IN

ANSWERING THAT QUESTION. >> GOOD EVENING. MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

MEMBERS. SO THE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS, THE MASTER THOROUGHFARE PLAN SAYS THAT BIG A ROAD IS SUPPOSED TO BE A 2 LANE UNDIVIDED ROADWAY WITH CONCRETE PAVEMENT AND INTEGRAL GUTTERS. OLD ROWLETT IS TO BE A 2 LANE UNDIVIDED ROAD ALSO CONCRETE INTERVAL LETTERS SLIGHTLY NARROWER. MORE OF A RESIDENTIAL ROADWAY WHEREAS BIG A IS A COLLECTOR. THE APPLICANT, HIS ESCROW DEPOSIT WOULD COVER HALF OF THE CONSTRUCTION DOLLARS WOULD BE NEEDED TO IMPROVE THOSE ROADS TO THOSE STANDARDS.

>> FOR THE ENTIRE AREA OUTLINED FOR HIS PROPERTY BOUNDARIES ARE?

>> CORRECT. THERE WAS A SLIDE THAT WAS SHOWN THAT SHOWED SOME BLUE ALONG THE FRONTAGES ON BOTH ROADS AND THAT'S BASICALLY IT. IT WOULD ALSO INCLUDE THE INTERSECTION BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE TO IMPROVE THAT INTERSECTION AND THEN IT WOULD TRANSITION BACK TO THE EXISTING CONDITIONS ON BIG A TOWARDS ROWLETT ROAD.

>> OKAY. I KNOW I SHOULD PROBABLY KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS.

WHY ARE THE ONLY RESPONSIBLE FOR 50 PERCENT? >> THAT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT IT

SAYS IN THE CODE. >> OKAY. >> THAT'S WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENT IT'S 50 PERCENT OF GRADE. THAT'S WHAT I NEEDED TO KNOW.

AND, WHAT WOULD BEST CASE SCENARIO, WHEN WILL WE HAVE OTHER HALF, DO YOU THINK IN

TERMS OF OUR LONG-TERM PLANNING IF THIS WERE TO GO THROUGH? >> THAT IS A MORE DIFFICULT QUESTION. CAN YOU HELP ME AT ALL? I KNOW WE TALKED ABOUT IT BUT I DON'T REMEMBER, I KNOW IT'S NOT GOING TO BE IN THE NEXT BOND ELECTION BUT WE THOUGHT WE

COULD PUT IT INTO THE BOND ELECTION AFTER NEXT. >> CORRECT.

CORRECT. >> COUNSIL I KNOW CARRIE IS ON AND HE MAY HAVE A COMMENT ON IT. WHAT I WOULD SAY TO THAT IS THAT YOU KNOW IN EVALUATING THAT ROAD OLD ROWLETT ROAD AT THE GATE RULED AGAINST OTHER PROJECTS THAT WOULD NOT RANK TO BE IN THE 20 21 BOND ELECTION BUT, A PROJECT LIKE THIS MIGHT TRIGGER IT FOR A FUTURE PROJECT BUT, WERE TALKING ABOUT THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE ROAD. IT'S A PRETTY BIG NUMBER.

>> THANK YOU. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS COUNCSEL? I'M LOOKING TO SEE IF I HAVE UESTIONS. MARTHA WILL GET YOU JUST A SECOND. I'M SORRY. THE PREVIOUS PLAN HAD, DID HAVE 4 STORIES IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, IS THAT CORRECT? CAN YOU GIVE ME MORE DETAIL ON

THAT? >> YES, THE PREVIOUS PLAN WAS MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENT.

OUR COMMENTARY BASED ON THAT WAS THAT WHEN THE APPLICANT WENT TO PNC AND RECEIVING THAT RECOMMENDATION ACTUALLY WENT BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD WITH THE APPLICANT AND LOOKED AT THE SURROUNDING AND BUILDING DEPARTMENT AND REVISITED SOME OF THE ELEMENTS WE DISCUSSED WHEN THE RESOLUTION OF THE OBJECTION WAS BEING DISCUSSED SAYING LET'S LOOK AT SOMETHING THAT ALLOWS FOR TRULY DEVELOPMENT THAT WOULD PROVIDE SOME SERVICES TO THE RESIDENTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT AS WELL AS THE SURROUNDING. THAT IS WHY WE STUCK WITH THE

[01:00:08]

MULTIFAMILY USE DEVELOPMENT. THAT WAS THE RESULT OF THE CONVERSATION.

>> THAT'S WHY THE BUILDINGS CLOSEST TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD WENT FROM 3 STORIES TO 4

STORIES? >> NUMBER ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOOKED AT WAS PROVIDING A MIXED USE COMPONENT TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND ALSO THE FACT THAT THE DEVELOPMENT IS APPROXIMATELY, OR THAT PORTION OF THE RENTAL UNITS ARE APPROXIMATELY 300 FEET FROM THE EAST PROPERTY LINE. WITH THE ASSOCIATED TRANSITIONS.

THE SCREENING MECHANISMS IN THE FUTURE OF THE TREES THAT WOULD LEND TO WE FELT IT WAS A

SUFFICIENT SEPARATION. >> THE DEVELOPMENT MY THOSE UNITS, I WOULD ASSUME.

>> CORRECT, ABSOLUTELY. >> ONE OF THE THINGS I SAID WAY BACK WHEN WAS IT STOOPING.

IT'S STILL TO BIG. IT'S MONSTROSITY. HOW IS THE HEIGHT OF THAT

DEVELOPMENT COMPARED TO EVERGREEN? >> I'LL DOUBLE CHECK THAT FOR YOU IN JUST A SECOND. BEAR WITH ME. OF LOST SIGHT OF THAT.

I HAD WRITTEN DOWN. >> I NOTICE WE HAVE RICK SHUT FILLED WITH US.

HE RAISED HIS HAND. RETRYING TO GIVE AN ANSWER RICK?

>> WAS JUST A MISTAKE EVERGREEN IS 4 STORIES. AND IT'S NOT FACING THE RESIDENTIAL. IT'S OUT ON OLD ROWLETT ROAD. IT'S NEXT TO THE SUBDIVISION.

>> SAY IT AGAIN RICK? >> THE ORIGINAL DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL WAS TO STORIES.

CLOSER TO LIBERTY CREEK. BUT IT WENT UP TO 3 IN THE MIDDLE.

IT'S 3 NOW AND FOR ON THE CORNER OF OLD ROWLETT. NEXT TO LIBERTY CREEK.

IT'S 4 STORIES THERE. >> I THOUGHT YOU SAID ALL THOSE BUILDINGS WERE 4 STORIES?

>> THERE, GIVE ME A SECOND LIMIT LOOK AT MY PRESENTATION. SO THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF 49 FEET OF 4 STORIES FOR BUILDINGS FRONTING BIG A ROAD AND OLD RELEVANT ROAD AND THE REQUESTING 3 STORIES FOR THE INTERNAL 6 CENTRAL MULTIFAMILY

UNIT BUILDINGS. THOSE ARE 3 STORIES. >> I WANT TO PULL THEM OUT BACK UP AND SEE A VISUAL PLEASE. AURA, THE SAME MAP WE HAVE A MINUTE AGO.

I'M SORRY. GIVE ME NUMBERS.>> BUILDING ONE INTO WHICH IS BLUE, THOSE ARE YOUR 4-STORY BUILDINGS. BUILDINGS 328 ARE YOUR 3-STORY BUILDINGS.

>> OF BUILDING 5 USED TO BE 2 STORIES. THE ORIGINAL PLAN WAS TO

STORIES. >> IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN I BELIEVE IT WAS.

>> THANK YOU. GO AHEAD AND PULL THE PRESENTATION DOWN.

SORRY ABOUT THAT. WE MAKE IT SO DIFFICULT FOR YOU.

COUNSEL WITH OTHER QUESTIONS BEFORE WE HEAR FROM THE HE APPLICANT? I'M NOT SEEING ANY SO I GUESS WILL GO AD AND SEE THE APPLICANT'S PRESENTATION.

>> GOOD EVENING MERT THIS IS CASEY GUMP. WOULD YOU WHY DID MR. SHEFFIELD

WENT FIRST. >> SURE. GO AHEAD RICK.

>> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. RICK SHUT FILLED, RELATIVE ACCESS. HERE IN MY CAPACITY AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MAYOR COMMITTEES OF THE CITY COUNCIL STAFF GOOD EVENING. 2020 HAS BEEN A YEAR THAT WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR YEARS IF NOT DECADES. PEOPLE HAVE QUARANTINED IN THEIR HOMES. GATHERINGS HAVE TRANSITIONED TO THE SMALL REALM.

BUSINESSES TRY TO STAY ALIVE. KEYBOARD.

IN SHORT, WERE LOSING OUR HUMANITY. THIS REQUEST BEFORE YOU TONIGHT

[01:05:04]

LOOKS TO TAKE THE INITIAL STEPS TO RESPOND TO THE TOLL THIS PANDEMIC IS TAKEN ON FAMILIES.

JOBS HAVE BEEN AND CONTINUE TO BE LOST. PEOPLE ARE TAKING LOWER PAYING JOBS TO MAKE THINGS MEAT. THAT FIELD TO THE FIRE PEOPLE ARE INCREASINGLY BEING PRICED OUT OF HOUSING. TEXAS ALONE ACCORDING TO THE REAL ESTATE AT TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY IN BEHALF OF RENTERS WERE MODERATELY OR SEVERELY BURDENED WITH REGARDS TO HOUSING. THESE PEOPLE ARE PAYING WELL OVER THE 30 PERCENT GROSS INCOME FOR HOUSING THAT'S CONSIDERED AFFORDABLE BY HUD. IN FACT, THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REAL REALTORS RELEASED A REPORT SHOWING IN THE LAST 6 YEARS HOME PRICES HAVE RISEN 47 PERCENT WHILE WAGES HAVE INCREASED BY HUNDRED 16 PERCENT.

IN THE RELEVANT AREA OF THE RECENT MARKET STUDY HAS DOCUMENTED THE DEMAND FOR 60 PERCENT AMI HOUSING IN THE RELEVANT AREA IS TO BE OVER 4000 UNITS.

AS YOU KNOW WE BEGAN THIS JOURNEY BACK IN MARCH WHEN THIS COUNCIL APPROVED A RESOLUTION OF NO OBJECTION FOR THIS DEVELOPMENT. I TAKE THIS ACTION TO ME THE COUNCIL WANTED TO SEE HOW THIS DEVELOPER COULD ADDRESS IT. AFTER THE FIRST ROUND OF DEVELOPMENT ACTION THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION DENIED THE APPLICATION JULY CITING THE LACK OF PROPERTY IN THE CITY. WHILE I'M HERE TONIGHT TO TELL YOU THAT THIS DEVELOPER LISTENS. THEY BEEN WORKING HARD TO ENSURE THERE WILL BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR AND TO HELP THE CITY IN ANY WAY THAT THEY CAN TO MEET THE CITY'S GOALS AS WELL.

I ALSO HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THE PROFESSIONALS IN THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT.

BUT ALL OF HER TEAM WORKED COLLABORATIVELY WITH THE DEVELOPER TO DESIGN A PRODUCT THAT MEETS THE OFFICE AND LOCAL RETAIL NEEDS AS WELL AS SUPPORTS THE CITIZENS VISION TO PROVIDE A PLACE WITH AFFORDABLE AND DIVERSE HOUSING AS DOCUMENTED IN THE MOST RECENT PLAN. AS YOU SAW IN STAFFS REPORT THIS MIXED USE RESIDENTIAL COMMERCIAL PROJECT WOULD ACT AS A CATALYST TOWARDS CREATING A WALKABLE ENVIRONMENT IN THE AREA AND PROVIDE SERVICES FOR BOTH EXISTING NEIGHBORHOODS, EXCUSE ME AND THE POTENTIAL RESIDENTS AT THIS DEVELOPMENT. IT CAN ALSO STIMULATE INTEREST INCOMPATIBLE ELEMENTS OF NEW NEARBY VACANT PROPERTIES AND BUILDINGS IN THE VICINITY. IT PROPOSED A FILM IT WILL PROVIDE A SUITABLE TRANSITION BETWEEN MORE INTENSIVE COMMERCIAL USES.

PROPOSAL MARSHALL WITH ADDING DIVERSIFICATION AND STRENGTHENING ROWLETT'S ECONOMY BY 31,000 SQUARE FEET OF NEIGHBORHOOD SERVING COMMERCIAL OFFICE AND RETAIL.

OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN MIXED-USE ENVIRONMENT. AGAIN, WE WENT BACK TO PNC AFTER THE DEVELOPMENT WORKED WITH STAFF FOR THIS NEW DESIGN. DEVELOPER ALSO PLACED SIRES CLOSE TO A THOUSAND AT ALL THE HOMES IN THE LIBERTY CREEK SUBDIVISION WHOSE HOA HAD PREVIOUSLY APPROVED THIS PROJECT. THE FLOWER HILL SUBDIVISION AND THE BUSINESSES ALONG THE BIG A ROAD. FRONTING THEM TO ONE OF 3 OPPORTUNITIES TO COME AND LEARN ABOUT THE PROJECT AND ASK QUESTIONS.

THEY WANTED EVERYONE IN THE SURROUNDING AREA EVEN THOSE OUTSIDE OF THE 500 FOOT RETENTION ZONE TO SEE WHAT A GOOD NEIGHBOR THEY WERE GOING TO BE GETTING.

SADLY WE HAD A DOZEN PEOPLE ATTEND THOSE MEETINGS. HE DID RECEIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM THE MASS MAJORITY OF THOSE PEOPLE. HOWEVER, AT LAST MONTH'S PNC MEETING WE LISTEN TO NEARLY AN HOUR AND AND A HALF OF EMAILS FROM PEOPLE ALL BUT A COUPLE HAVING NEVER ATTENDED THE INFORMATIONAL MEETINGS. ALL IN THE REPEATABLE THEME ABOUT HOW REAL IT HAS TO MANY APARTMENTS NOW AT THESE LOW INCOME SECTION 8 APARTMENTS WILL BRING CRIME, DRUGS AND PROSTITUTION TO THE AREA AND ENDANGERED WILDLIFE.

THIS WAS A VERY COORDINATED EMAIL ATTACK FROM THOSE KEYBOARD WARRIORS I MENTIONED EARLIER. EVEN HAD ONE COMMISSIONER THAT WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT NOT RECEIVING THEIR PAYMENT. A CASE THAT IS A QUESTION FOR ANY OF YOU I SPOKE WITH RECENTLY WITH THE TRUSTEE ON THE SCHOOL BOARD UNDER AWFULLY CLOSE TO BECOMING WHAT'S CONSIDERED A PROPERTY WHICH SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR CHAPTER 41 DISTRICT IF YOU WILL. PART OF THIS BEING A CATALYST IN THE RECENT TRV MODEL.

ADDING ADDITIONAL PROPERTY IN A PRECARIOUS SITUATION WHERE THEY COULD IN FACT HAVE TO BE RECAPTURED DOLLARS BACK TO THE STATE. DISTRICT HOWEVER IT WILL RECEIVE FUNDS FOR ANY INCREASE IN ATTENDANCE FROM THIS DEVELOPMENT THROUGH THE EVERY DAY ATTENDANCE FUNDS THAT ARE PROVIDED BY THE STATE. THEY WILL GET FUNDS FOR ANY STUDENT THAT COMES IN. I KNOW ALL OF YOU ON THIS COUNCIL AND I KNOW THAT YOU

[01:10:03]

UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES SURROUNDING MULTIFAMILY. YOU CAN LOOK PAST THE HYPERBOLE AND CONSIDER THE FACTS. IN THE RESPONSES FROM THE CITY'S NOTIFICATION THE 200 AND 505 ZONES THERE WAS VERY LITTLE INPUT IN SEVERAL POSITIVE COMMENTS INCLUDING ONE FROM A FORMER CITY COUNCIL MEMBER WHO RECOGNIZES THIS NEED AND HE SEES THIS DEVELOPMENT IS FAR BETTER THAN ANYTHING THAT COULD COME IN BY RIGHT. IN FACT HE COMMITTED THE DEVELOPER'S WILLINGNESS TO WORK WITH THE NEIGHBORS TO ACCEPT THE PLAN.

THIS DEVELOPER HAS DONE EVERYTHING ASKED BY COUNSEL. THEIR GOAL ALONG WITH THE HFC SCHOOLS TO PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SAFE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AS A FOUNDATION FOR MEANINGFUL LIFE. THIS WAS A GOAL THAT THIS COUNCIL HAS TASKED HFC WITH AND I TELL YOU WE TAKE THAT MISSION SERIOUSLY. APPROVAL OF THE ZONING CHANGE REQUEST WILL BE THE FIRST STOP PROVIDING HOMES FOR HARD-WORKING MIDDLE-CLASS FAMILIES THAT ARE LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK. BUT LIVING IN A HOUSE THAT'S AFFORDABLE FAMILIES HAVE MORE DISPOSABLE INCOME TO SPEND AND RELIC RESTAURANTS IN THE SHOP AND RELIC BUSINESSES. FULLY 76 AFFORDABLE FAMILY UNITS IN THE CITY WE ARE WOEFULLY BEHIND FOR THESE NEEDS IN THE COMMUNITY. TONIGHT I ASK FOR YOUR HUMANITY TO RISE UP ABOVE AND DO WHAT'S RIGHT FOR CURRENT AND CLUED IN FUTURE ROWLETT TAXPAYERS.

TO CONCLUDE I WILL AGAIN " FROM YOUR POCKET. STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THIS REQUEST TO ESTABLISH A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, LIMITING COMMERCIAL RETAIL USES.

PROPOSING DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL BE A TRANSITION BETWEEN LOWER DOSE OF POTENTIAL USES IN THE HIGHER INTENSITY COMMERCIAL USES. THE CONCEPTUAL PLAN PROVIDES A GENEROUS SETBACK IN LANDSCAPE BUFFERING FROM THE NEIGHBORING SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENCE IN THE MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT WILL PROVIDE FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING SUPPORTING A SEGMENT OF BALANCE WORKFORCE AND CAN SERVE AS A MODEL AND A CATALYST FOR SIMILAR DEVELOPMENT AND REINVESTMENT IN THE VICINITY. GIVEN ALL OF THE FACTS THAT HAVE BEEN PRESENTED YOU WILL SEE IN THE DEVELOPERS PRESENTATION THIS WILL BE A GREAT ASSET FOR THE CITY.

NOT ONLY FOR THE WORKING CLASS RESIDENTS BUT AS A CATALYST FOR LOCAL OFFICE AND RETAIL.S YOU KNOW OFFICE RIGHT NOW WITH ALL READ THE ARTICLES WILL BE VERY SLOW COME BACK.

WE CAN HAVE SOME INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE TO HELP BRING ALONG. THEREFORE MY MIND YOUR DECISION REALLY BOILS DOWN TO ONE ISSUE. DOES THIS COUNCIL SUPPORT LOWER AND MIDDLE INCOME FAMILIES CALLING ROWLETT HOME? I URGE THIS COUNCIL TO RECOGNIZE THE ASSESSMENT OF THIS PROFESSIONAL STAFF HAS PROVIDED. I PRAY THAT YOU WILL APPROVE THIS REQUEST. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH RICK. OUR BEGINNING FROM THE APPLICANT?

>> YES MA'AM. >> I ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO LIMIT YOU.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO NOT REPEAT THINGS THAT OF AARTI BENNETT GOT OVER.

WE'VE GOT A LONG NIGHT AHEAD OF US. BRICKS ABSOLUTELY.

THERE, HE READ MY MIND BECAUSE THIS AFTERNOON FIRST T OF ITS GREAT TO SEE ALL OF YOUR FACES.

LAST TIME WE WERE TOGETHER YOU L WERE HEADING INTO THE DEMIC. WE MADE THE FINAL CUT THERE AND YOU WERE GRACIOUS ENOUGH TO GIVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY IN FRONT OF YOU. SINCE THEN IT HAS BEEN A BUMPY ROAD BUT WE HAVE HAD AN ABSOLUTE JOY OF WORKING WITH YOUR STAFF AND MENAUL AND TORAH AND ALEX ON THE TEAM AND JEFF JUST TO GET TO THIS POINT TO HAVE THEIR SUPPORT. WE FEEL LIKE WE WON AND WE HOPE WE CAN GET ACROSS THE FINISH LINE TONIGHT WITH YOU ALL. OBVIOUSLY WE ARE HERE TO COME IN PEACE. WE ARE TO BE A NEIGHBOR. WE REALLY KNOW IT'S OKAY TO SAY NUMBER IF YOU SAY NO WERE GOING TO STILL BE GRACIOUS AND KEEP DOING OVERDOING THROUGHOUT THE STATE. I INVITE YOU TO ENGAGE IN THIS LOOK AT WHAT THE POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY HERE IS IN THE AREA THAT MAY NOT SEE DEVELOPMENT FOR SOME TIME.

WE HAVE HEARD OFFICE IS IN LOW DEMAND NOW. THAT LAND HAS BEEN SITTING THERE THROUGH HIGH MARKET. IF NOT OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY UPGRADE THE AREA MORE IN AND SO WE INVITE YOU TO ENTER THE CONVERSATION WITH US. COULD YOU PLEASE GO TO THE NEXT

[01:15:03]

SLIDE. THIS IS JUST A CONCEPT DRAWING WE HAVE FROM ONE OF OUR OTHER SIMILAR PROPERTIES THAT WERE LOOKING OUT. IT GIVES YOU AN IEA OF WHAT IS POSSIBLE AT THE CORNER OF THE COMMUNITY.WE WILL, IF THERE IS A DESIRE TO WORK WEST OF THE CITY TO FIND SOMETHING AESTHETICALLY PLEASING THAT WORKS WELL FOR THE AREA.

TO CLARIFY THE QUESTION EARLIER MAYOR, THE BUILDINGS THAT WERE NEXT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD, THE 2-STROKE END OF THE BUILDING AND THERE WERE 3 STORES IN THE MIDDLE.

WE'VE DONE THAT CUSTOMER CLOSE TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THAT WAS THE ONLY MODIFICATION.

THE OTHER PIECE WE WILL DO IS WERE GOING TO BE HERE JUST LIKE WE BEEN DOING WITH STAFF IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS CONTINUING TO TRY TO CREATE IMMUNITY. PNEVER OWN MANAGEMENT TEAM, CONSTRUCTION TEAM AND THERE MAY BE SOME ITEMS YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT WITH US THAT AREN'T ON THE TABLE. FOR EXAMPLE. THE INFRASTRUCTURE APPEARED THAT'S A LOT OF FEEDBACK WE'VE HEARD ABOUT THAT. WHAT I COULD OFFER, IN ORDER TO SPEED UP THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS WE WOULD BE WILLING TO LOAN AND THE OTHER HALF OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE FUNDS ARE PUT THEM UP SO BECAUSE START THE INFRASTRUCTURE EARLIER SO THAT THE CITY OR OTHER DEVELOPERS WHEN THEY BUILT IN THE AREA CAN PAY THEIR SHARE TO TIE ON.

IN LINE WITH THE COMMUNITY IN LINE TO GET THAT OUT OF THE GATE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

WE RECOGNIZE THE NEED FOR IMPROVEMENT. WE ARE OPEN TO ALMOST ANYTHING THAT YOU ALL WOULD BE INTERESTED IN TALKING TO US ABOUT AS FAR AS THE INFRASTRUCTURE GOES. WE'VE GOT A TOUGH ROAD TO CLIMB.

WE NEED 6 VOTES. DON'T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET TOGETHER AND I WISH I COULD SPEND TIME WITH EACH OF YOU AND EXPLAIN BUT THIS IS HER FORM AND HOPE YOU WILL TAKE THE CHANCE AND IVAN LOOK AT WHAT'S POSSIBLE IN THIS AREA. IF IT'S NOT BUS IT MAY BE A LONG TIME BEFORE ANYTHING IS ABLE TO BE DEVELOP ON THE SITE. I'M AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS AND

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIME. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I APPRECIATE THAT PRESENTATION.

I REALLY DO. RIGHT COUNSEL. ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. SCHIFF FILLED OR FOR THE APPLICANT BEFORE I OPEN UP THE PUBLIC C ARING?

COUNCILMAN GORSUCH? >> I KNOW AT ONE POINT YOU HAD HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH THE OWNER OF THAT VACANT LOT RIGHT NEXT TO O'REILLY'S. HAVE YOU HAD ANY IRM FOR THE CONVERSATION WITH THAT LANDOWNER AND WHAT IS THAT STAND?

? >> WE HAD GONE BACK TO THE LAND AND WARMER AND THE LAND OWNER AND THEIR LAWYER A NUMBER OF TIMES. THEY WERE NOT INTERESTED IN

ELLING. THAT'S AROUND. >> THANK YOU.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME. ASK ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? I'M NOT SEEING AT THIS TIME.

AT THIS TIME I WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING. WE WILL TAKE COMMENTS FROM THE PUBLIC AND, LAURA ARE YOU GOT A PREFERENCE THAT WOULD HELP BRING THOSE COMMENTS.

IS THAT CORRECT? >> YES MA'AM. WE DON'T HAVE ANY COLORS ON THE LINE. WE WILL BE GOING THROUGH THOSE HOUSEKEEPING ITEMS THAT I NORMALLY DO. I WILL GET STRAIGHT TO THE EMAILS THAT WE RECEIVED IF

THAT'S OKAY. >> YES, EVERYBODY SIT BACK AND RELAX.

>> TRULY. >> HOW MANY ARE THERE? THE CURIOSITY BEFORE YOU START.

>> 34 TO 36. SOME AROUND THERE. >> READY? LAUREN FRANKS 5813 IRIS DRIVE. I'M WRITING TO VOICE MY OPINION AS A RESIENT LIVING NEAR BIG A OLD ROWLETT ROAD. THIS AREA HAS A HEAVY TRAFFIC FLOW, FOR STREETS AND INFRASTRUCTURE AND CHANGING THIS COMMERCIAL AREA INTO MULTI-HOUSING IS WILDLY IRRESPONSIBLE. LOCAL AREA IS OVERSATURATED WITH APARTMENTS ALREADY AND THERE IS PLENTY OF FREE SPACE IN OTHER AREAS OF RELATIVE LIKE WATERVIEW THAT WOULD BENEFIT FOR MORE HOUSING DIVERSITY. ALSO, WITH RETIREMENT FACILITY AND CITY OFFICES RECENTLY JUST BUILT RIGHT HERE WE HAVE SEEN INCREASED DISPLACED WILDLIFE WHICH HAS CAUSED THE NEIGHBORHOOD ANIMALS TO GO MISSING OR BECOME INJURED IN LARGE TREE RATS FOR NASTY SPACE. IT IS IRRESPONSIBLE TO HAVE 200+ HOUSING UNITS IN THE SMALL SPACE THAT IS BEAMING WITH DRIVING COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS ALREADY.

WE UNANIMOUSLY VOTED NO TO THIS TWICE ALREADY EVEN AFTER THEY THREW IN A FEW SMALL COMMERCIAL SPOTS DOES COURT AROUND THE ORIGINAL BULLY BECAUSE HE AGREED THIS WAS A TERRIBLE LOCATION FOR THIS PROJECT. ANDY STRIKE ON 3414 TULIP LIEN RIGHTS, HERE WE ARE AGAIN.

[01:20:08]

DISCUSSING THE MAYOR REQUESTED CHANGE A LOT MORE APARTMENTS. SO FROM THE LOOKS OF IT ROWLETT IS LOSING THE BEDROOM MAKE UNITY LOOK AND FEEL TO ALLOW MORE POPULATION DENSITY THAN RELATIVE IS CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING. I AM NOT IN FAVOR OF APPROVAL OF THIS TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT FOR THE SUBTRACTIVE PLAN. RELIC HAS WAY TO MANY APARTMENTS UNDER CONSTRUCTION ALREADY. WHEN WILL RELATIVE EVER ATTRACT SOME MEANINGFUL COMMERCIAL BUSINESS? CHARLES HENTON AT 30+ YEAR HOMEOWNER AT 2506 STREET LIEN RIGHTS. PLEASE DO NOT APPROVE CYPRUS CREEK APARTMENT COMPLEX. DDING HIGH DNSITY PROJECT IS OVERTAXED IN THIS AREA.

THE WATER PRESSURE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, FLOWER HILL IS TERRIBLE AND ADDING APARTMENTS IN THIS LOCATION WILL MAKE IT WORSE. INCREASE TRAFFIC THIS VERY REAL ISSUE. THERE REGULARLY RESIDENTS OF EVERGREEN APARTMENTS WRITING SCOOTERS OR VULTURES ON BIG GAY OR OLD RELEVANT ROAD. AS IT IS NOW SEEING THESE VEHICLES IS OFTEN TIMES DIFFICULT AND ADDING THAT MUCH ADDITIONAL APARTMENT TRAFFIC TO THE MIX. WILL MAKE LOOKING FOR EVERGREEN RESIDENCE HARDER.

ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC IN THIS AREA IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. IN ADDITION TO BEING OPPOSED TO ADDITIONAL APARTMENT CONSTRUCTION AND GENERAL THIS COMPLEX IS A RENT SUBSIDY PROJECT WHICH MAKES IT EVEN MORE IMPACTFUL TO PROPERTY VALUES TO HOMES NEARBY.

WITH EVERGREEN FACILITY BEING A RENT SUBSIDY FACILITY ALLOWING IT TO SUCH MULTIFAMILY LOCATED PROJECTS TO BE LOCATED THERE LATE NEXT TO EACH OTHER IS UNFAIRLY DISCRIMINATORY TOWARDS THE CURRENT HOMEOWNERS BOTH THE NEIGHBORHOODS ADJACENT TO THE PROPOSED CYPRUS CREEK SITE.

UNDOUBTABLY OPPOSED TO THE CYPRESS CREEK APARTMENTS. WHILE THERE MIGHT BE'S SHORT-TERM MONETARY BENEFITS THE CITY WOULD RECEIVE FROM THE STATE OR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THE LONG-TERM COST ASSOCIATED WITH RENT SUBSIDY UNITS IS ALWAYS TO HIDE.

CRIME A RELIC HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY IN THE PAST 3 YEARS AND RENT SUBSIDIZED HOUSING WILL MAKE THIS PROBLEM EVEN WORSE. I'VE SEEN MANY CHANGES IN RELATIVE THE 30+ YEARS I'VE LIVED HERE AND I'M SURE THE PEOPLE THAT WERE HERE BEFORE THE AREA IT WAS DEVELOPED WITH SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES WERE NOT PLEASED TO SEE THE FARMLANDS DISAPPEAR. AT LEAST SINGLE-FAMILY OWNERSHIP GIVES INCOMING PEOPLE MISTAKE THE CITY WERE MENTORS HAVE NO STAKE AT ALL. WHAT TIME THE HOMES BEING BUILT BEHEADED IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION OF BEING HIGHER PRICED WHICH ATTRACTS MORE BUYERS AND HELPS EXISTING HOME VALUES APPRECIATE. NOW THE CITY IS BECOMING OVERWHELMED WITH APARTMENTS WHICH ATTRACTS A TRANSITORY POPULATION THAT IS THE WRONG DIRECTION. SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT RENTERS BUT THEY WERE ALWAYS TRANSITORY. APARTMENT COMPLEXES IN GENERAL DO NOT AGE WELL AND RENT SUBSIDY APARTMENTS QUITE FRANKLY DETERIORATE VERY RAPIDLY.

RENTERS HAVE NO STAKE IN THE CITY COMPARED TO HOMEOWNERS. PLEASE, I IMPLORE YOU, EVERY MEMBER OF THE CITY COUNCIL TO VOTE NO ON THE CYPRESS CREEK APARTMENT PROJECT.

>> MEREDITH NEITHER LEND RIGHTS, A RESIDENT OF THE FLOWER HILL SUBDIVISION NEAR OLD ROWLETT ROAD AND BIG A ROAD. PRETTY SURE MY THOUGHTS ON OLD ROWLETT ROAD AND BIG A ROAD COMING MULTIFAMILY HOUSING SOON.

MY FAMILY MOVED TO FLOWER HILL SUBDIVISION ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO. HOUSE BOX UP TO THE OPEN LAND SPACE BETWEEN THE HOUSING SUBDIVISION IN THE SENIOR LIVING COMPLEX.

I COULD SEE THE ROOFTOP OF EVERGREEN FROM MY BACKYARD AS WELL AS THE NEW OFFICE BUILDING DEVELOPMENT EAST SIDE OF OLD ROWLETT RATE FOR MY FENCE LINE. MY HOME IS LITERALLY BECOMING LANDLOCKED BY BUILDINGS.HIS POTENTIAL NEW DEVELOPMENT WILL HAVE A HUGE NEGATIVE EFFECT ON MY RESIDENTIAL VALUE AS WELL AS TRAFFIC NOISE AND POTENTIAL THEFT.

THE RELATIVE AREA MEANS COMMUNITY. THE RELATIVE AREA THAT MEANS SAFETY AND SECURITY. FROM AN EDUCATOR ADMINISTRATOR GIS D AND I'VE SEEN A LOT OF CHANGE AND ROWLETT. CHANGE HAS BEEN FANTASTIC FOR CITY AND OTHERS HAVE NOT.

PLACING A NEARLY 258 UNIT APARTMENT COMPLEX ON THIS CORNER WOULD NOT BE BENEFICIAL.

HAT LOT IS SURROUNDED BY OTHER CURRENTLY PROFITABLE BUSINESSES TO BE THE LAND FOR NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY WOULD MAKE MORE SENSE. THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE ROADS ARE BIG A ROAD AND OLD ROWLETT ROAD WOULD NOT SUPPORT THE INFLUX OF TRAFFIC.

THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER MULTIFAMILY COMPLEXES BEING BUILT IN OUR IMMEDIATE AREA.

THEY ARE CAPACITY? ARE THEY BRINGING IN REVENUE? WHAT ARE THEIR CRIMES DOUBTS? WHAT IS RELEVANT NEED MORE SO CLOSE TO RESIDENTIAL HOUSING? WITHIN THE PAST 2 YEARS THE SENIOR LIVING COMPLEX AT THE CORNER HAS BEEN NICE FOR SUBDIVISION.

[01:25:01]

WE ENJOY SEEING THE ELDERLY PEOPLE OUT WALKING AND ENJOYING THE SPACE.

IF YOU WERE TO INCREASE PEOPLE, TRAFFIC AND CONSTRUCTION ON A MULTI-HOUSING PROJECT AT THIS CORNER WOULD CREATE A HUGE ISSUE FOR THOSE ELDERLY RESIDENTS.

LASTLY, THE HOMES OF OUR HILL ARE ACTIVELY LOCATED FOR NEW RELIC RESIDENTS AS WELL AS YOUNG FAMILIES AND COUPLES. OUR HOUSES ARE NOT HUGE UNDER SUBDIVISION IS WELL MAINTAINED WITHOUT AN HOA MAKING THESE PROPERTIES AFFORDABLE AND PROMISING.

IT WOULD BE VERY SAD TO SEE HER SUBDIVISION BROUGHT DOWN OR PEOPLE TO MOVE OUT DUE TO THIS NEW CONSTRUCTION. WE ARE VALUABLE PROPERTY TO ROWLETT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. SORRY MY STAPLE HAS GOTTEN IN THE WAY.

AS WE PAUSE FOR TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. REBECCA PRESTWOOD AT 6106 SAN MARINO COURT RIGHTS, THIS AREA OF RELATIVE CANNOT HANDLE THIS MUCH DEVELOPMENT.

PLEASE VOTE AGAINST THIS PROPOSAL. THANK YOU.

>> BRIDGIT MORE AHEAD, WE LIVED ONTO THE PLANE AND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD FLOWER HILL HAS BEEN ADVISED. YET AGAIN OF THIS PROPOSED PROJECT.

MY NEIGHBORS AND I AGREE WE DO NOT WANT APARTMENTS HERE. TRAFFIC IS ALREADY INCREASED QUITE A BIT SINCE EVERGREEN SENIOR APARTMENTS HAVE BEEN BUILT AS WELL AS A NEW OFFICE SPACE ACROSS FROM THE SENIOR APARTMENTS. WE'VE ALREADY VOICED OUR OPINIONS AND CONCERNS IN THE MASSES TO THE PNC THAT AFFORDED NO TWICE.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT THIS IS EVEN HAPPENING AGAIN BUT WE ARE ALL STILL RESOUNDING NUMBER THE SENIOR APARTMENT COMMUNITY SAYS NUMBER ALL OF US MIGHT HAVE TO LOOK FOR THIS PROPOSED APARTMENT COMPLEX SAY NO, NO, NUMBER OLD RELEVANT ROAD IS A SMALL STREET WHICH IS FALLING APART AND RIDDLED WITH POTHOLES IT CANNOT SUPPORT THE HUGE INFLUX OF TRAFFIC ON IT.IG A IS NOT MUCH BETTER. OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS BEING A HOUSING A LOT MORE TRAFFIC ON IT AND PEOPLE SPEED DOWN IT ALL THE TIME. I CAN'T COUNT HOW MANY TIMES ACCIDENTS HAVE NEARLY BEEN AVOIDED BY PEOPLE SPEEDING DOWN BIG A. WE DON'T NEED MORE PEOPLE TRAVELING ON THE STREET. SEVERAL OF THE SENIORS AT LIPID EVERGREEN DRIVE THERE ARE ELECTRICAL SCOOTERS AND OR WALK ON RELEVANT ROAD AND BIG GAY. IMPEDING TRAFFIC ALREADY.

WE DON'T NEED MORE PEOPLE USING A STREET WITHOUT SIDEWALKS AS WALKWAYS, PLUS INCREASE AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC. IN ADDITION TO TRAFFIC, CRIME AND INFRASTRUCTURE, WHAT ABOUT THE WILDLIFE THAT'S GETTING MORE AND MORE DISPLACED. WE HAVE COYOTES THAT ARE NOW ACTIVELY HUNTING OUR PETS. THEY ARE COMING INTO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE NIGHT AND DAY. WE HAVE RACCOONS, POSSUMS, SKUNKS, TREE ROUTES, ALL FIGHTING FOR SPACE TO LIVE AND AL ENCROACHING ON HER PROPERTIES BCAUSE THEY HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO GO. IN THE 8 YEARS WE'VE LIVED HERE WE'VE SEEN A SERIOUS DECLINE IN PRODUCTIVITY IN REGARD DESPITE ALL THE FEEDERS WE HAVE. NATURE IS EVEN TELLING YOU KNOW. MOVED HERE 8 YEARS AGO BECAUSE WE LIKED THE SMALL TOWN FEEL.

HE LOVED THE QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD AND WE ARE TOLD NOTHING BUT A NEIGHBORHOOD PARK WAS SUPPOSED TO BE BUILT BEHIND HER HOME EVENTUALLY. NOW, IT IS SLOWLY BEING GOBBLED UP BY APARTMENTS. UNDERSTAND GROWTH IS INEVITABLE BUT WE HAVE LIVED IN AREAS BEFORE THAT WERE ALL SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL MONTHS APARTMENTS COMMIT TO THE AREA CRIME INCREASE. WE ARE ONLY SEEING CRIME INCREASE AS MORE MORE PEOPLE WITHOUT FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND RENT OUT THEIR HOMES. CARS BEING BROKEN INTO ON A REGULAR BASIS. ITEMS STOLEN OFF OF OUR PROPERTIES.

PACKAGES BE TAKEN OFF OF OUR PORCHES. HOMES BEEN BROKEN INTO.

MYSELF AND A LOT OF NEIGHBORS HAVE ALL HAD TO INSTALL CAMERAS ALL AROUND OUR HOMES TO HELP PROTECT US. THIS WILL GET BETTER WITH A TYPE OF APARTMENTS THEY WANT TO'S BUILD NEAR US. IT WILL NT HELP TO INCREASE HER HOME VALUES, NO HOMEOWNER ONCE LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW IN A STATE OF SICK TREES IN NATURE PTHEY ARE FORCED TO LOOK AT APARTMENT BUILDING. WE WERE HERE FIRST AND PAY A LOT FOR THAT.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE LISTEN TO OUR CONCERNS AND VOTE NUMBER WE ELECTED YOU ALL TO DO THE BEST CHOICES FOR US TO PROTECT US. THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHOW US YOUR LISTENING. JOY BERNARD WRITES, AS A NEW PRESIDENT OF RELEVANT MIGHT FEEL COMPELLED TO RESPOND TO THE SHADY PROPOSAL FROM CYPRESS CREEK.

RIESLING MOVED FROM HIS GAIT WERE COMPANY PROPOSED APARTMENTS AND GOT TURNED DOWN.

THEY CHANGED TO INCLUDE COMMERCIAL GROUND-FLOOR. THERE APPEARED 5 YEARS LATER THE COMMERCIAL LEVEL STILL VACANT. PLEASE THINK ABOUT YOUR COMMUNITY, THE STREET WAS FORMALLY A SMALL STREET TO ACCOMMODATE THE CEMETERY.

IT IS NOT LARGE ENOUGH TO PACCOMMODATE MAJOR TRAFFIC. IN ADDITION, WE HAVE MULTIPLE COMPLEXES BEING BUILT CURRENTLY. BETWEEN THOSE ON RELEVANT ROAD AND THE COMPLEX IN DOWNTOWN SIMILAR TO THIS PROPOSAL WE ARE GAINING HUNDREDS OF NEW UNITS.

PERHAPS ONE OF YOU OR FOR THE NORTHEAST WOULD BE A BETTER CHOICE.

[01:30:04]

THEN AGAIN, WAITING TO SEE HOW OUR SCHOOLS ARE ABLE TO ADJUST BEFORE ADDING EVEN MORE FAMILIES TO THE MIX. PLEASE VOTE NO TO THE NEW PROPOSAL.

DIANE ELLIS RINGS. PLEASE LET ME ADD MY NOTE TO THE LIST AGAINST THE ABOVE MENTIONED REZONING PROPOSAL. I LIVED WITHIN 500 FEET OF THIS ADDRESS.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT THIS PROJECT.

OLD RELEVANT ROAD IS IN BAD NEED OF REPAIRS WITH THE LIMITED TRAFFIC PRESENT.

ADDING TO THIS WILL INCREASE THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL AND CONTINUED UPKEEP OF THIS ROAD, WIDENING AND EXPANDING AND POSSIBLY TRAFFIC SIGNAL. A SENIOR LIVING RESIDENCE IS AT THIS LOCATION. MANY OF THESE PEOPLE ARE ACCUSTOMED TO A QUIETER ATMOSPHERE. AS A NECESSITY. SOME WALK AND/OR WRITE THEIR MOTORIZED CHAIRS TO GET TO AREA SHOPPING FOR GROCERIES A MEDICAL NEEDS OR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. THEY WILL BE SEVERELY IMPACTED WITH INCREASE TRAFFIC TO COMOTION IN THIS AREA. IT WILL IMPACT SAFETY FOR SOME. WELL-KNOWN MULTIFAMILY HOUSING BY SHARED NUMBERS INHERENTLY BRINGS INCREASED NOISE, CONGESTION, TRAFFIC WILL BE IMPACTED BY THIS. SCHOOL BUSES OF ALL KINDS OF ACTIVITY INCREASED ACTIVITY WHICH WE DO NOT WANT, NEED OR CAN SUPPORT THIS LIMITED LOCATION AGAIN.

PLEASE CONSIDER ALL SAFETY ISSUES. HAVE A SOMEWHAT LOVELY VIEW OF A QUIET PIECED OF PASTURELAND WHICH WE ENJOY. PUTTING UP A BUILDING OF THIS LOCATION WILL IMPACT OUR QUALITY OF LIFE HERE. THERE MAY ALSO BE A NEGATIVE COST CONSIDERATIONS IMPACTING TEXAS NEGATIVELY. IF IT'S TRUE THE CITY'S GOING TO BE ON THE HOOK FOR A PORTION OF THE COST TO DEVELOP AND BUILD.

THE DEVELOPER WILL BE PARTING WITH THE RELEVANT HOUSING FINANCE CORPORATION ON THIS PROPERTY AND THROUGH THIS PARTNERSHIP THEY WILL SHOW THE DEVELOPMENT FEE AND CASH FLOW.

I PLEAD WITH YOU TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE IMPACT TO THE SMALL, QUIET PART OF RELEVANT BEFORE MAKING YOUR DECISION. THERE ARE OTHER AREAS THAT WILL BETTER SUPPORT, MAY WELCOME AND MAY EVEN BENEFIT BY THIS MULTIFAMILY HOUSING PROJECT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR

CONSIDERATION. >> THE FOLLOWING IS A FORM EMAIL WE RECEIVED FROM THE FOLLOWING RESIDENCE. JOHN HOLMES, LESLIE AND BECKY WINFIELD, LIZ KRAUSE, SHARON BOOTH AND KIMBERLY AND HARVEY VARGAS. FROM OUR FAMILY AND COMMUNITY TO THE CITY OF .

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ THE ARTICLE PUBLISHED BY NPR ON THE SUBJECT, LINK PROVIDED.

AS WELL AS OTHERS WHICH SUPPORT THIS CLAIM. AS FOR THE CITIZENS OF REFERRING TO THE END OF THE WELL-BEING OF HER NEIGHBORHOODS IS A TOP PRIORITY FOR EACH OF YOU. WHILE THE INCREASE IN VIOLENT CRIME IS MY FIRST CONCERN.

THERE SECONDARY CONCERNS WHICH ARE WORTH DISCUSSING. THE ROAD TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THIS PROPERTY CANNOT HANDLE THE TRAFFIC OF 200+ PRESIDENTIAL UNITS.

THANKFULLY, BIG A NEEDED MUCH NEEDED REPAIRS TO YOUR SCOPE WITH THE CAPACITY ROADS 2 THINGS IS NOT ADEQUATE FOR A LARGE PROJECT AS IS AND WOULD NEED EXPANSION PRIOR TO CHANGING THE ZONING FOR THIS TYPE OF PROJECT. OLD RELEVANT ROAD HAS NOT RECEIVED THE REPAIRS NEEDED AN ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC ADDED BY THE EVERGREEN APARTMENTS HAS LED TO FURTHER DETERIORATION. WITH THE OPENING OF THE NEW LIBRARY RECENT ADDITION OF SITTING OFFICES LOCATED ON OLD RELEVANT ROAD THE NEEDS OF THIS ROAD HAVE BECOME MORE OBVIOUS THAN EVER. BEFORE CHANGING ZONING RESTRICTIONS ON THE PROPOSED PROPERTY I STRONGLY URGE THE CITY TO FIRST INVEST IN THE ROADS.

LASTLY I BELIEVE APARTMENT HOMES LOWER THE VALUES OF THE HOMES IN FLOWER HILL AND LIBERTY CREEK NEIGHBORHOODS. ACCORDING TO A 2016 STUDY PUBLISHED BY REALTOR.COM LEADING CAUSE OF LOWER PROPERTY VALUES IS A HIGH CONCENTRATION OF RENTAL UNITS.

[01:35:05]

LINK PROVIDED. AS A HOMEOWNER WHO PURCHASED MY HOME IN ROWLETT AT THE PEAK OF THE HOUSING MARKET I'M COUNTING ON PROPER MANAGEMENT TO PROTECT THE VALUE OF MY INVESTMENT.

IT'S ALSO IN THE CITY'S BEST INTEREST TO PROTECT PROPERTY VALUES AS THAT PROTECTS THE TAX REVENUE THAT KEEPS OUR CITY OPERATING AT ITS FINEST.THANK YOU.

BECAUSE YOU AND JIMMY THOMAS AT 8306 MUNICH DRIVE RIGHT, PLEASE DON'T ALLOW THIS APARTMENT COMPLEX COME TO FRUITION. VOTE NUMBER WE DON'T WANT THE 14 3 ACRE TRACT LOCATED ON THE NORTHEAST, OLD ALLOTT ROAD AND FOR GAY ROAD TO BE REZONED TO MULTIFAMILY SUBURBAN FOR LIMITED COMMERCIAL USES. EILEEN GORDON, TO THE PLAIN RESIDENT, WRITES, IS A 23 RESIDENTS ARE HELD NOT IN FAVOR OF HAVING CYPRESS CREEK BUILT AT OLD RELEVANT ROUTE AND BEGIN A BRAKES. FIRST OF ALL I DO NOT BELIEVE OUR INFRASTRUCTURE CAN HANDLE THE INCREASED VEHICLE TRAFFIC. OLD RELEVANT ROAD IS NOT IN GOOD CONDITION CURRENTLY.

ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC BY THOSE DRIVING TO AND FROM CYPRESS CREEK WILL CAUSE MORE DETERIORATION OF THE ROAD SERVICE MAKING IT HAZARDOUS AT ALL.

CYPRESS CREEK WILL CREATE INCREASED CONCERNS. PREVIOUS CONCERNS HAVE SUBMITTED TO THE CITY REGARDING LACK OF SIDEWALKS ON OLD WALLET ROAD HAVE NEVER BEEN ADDRESSED TODAY. IT IS QUITE COMMON TO SEE EVERGREEN RESIDENCE IN MOTORIZED SCOOTERS AND WHEELCHAIRS WRITING IN THE MIDDLE OR THE EDGES OF THE ROAD WHICH IS NOT A SAFE SITUATION FOR THEM OR THE DRIVERS ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT.

UNLESS YOU LIVED IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS YOU MAY NOT BE AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM. PLEASE DRIVE IT YOURSELF TO SEE THE CURRENT CONDITIONS IN PERSON. FRANKLY, I DON'T THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE TO BUILD A HIGH DENSITY COMP WAS ASKED TO ESTABLISH SINGLE-FAMILY HOME UNITS.

I'M NOT OPPOSED TO APARTMENT RESIDENTS. THE AMOUNT FINALLY COME UP WITH A PLETHORA OF APARTMENTS ALREADY BUILT BEING BUILT IN CITY OF LA.

TO BE REALLY NEED MORE RESIDENTS WILL BE MOST IMPACTED NONAPPROVED CYPRESS CREEK PROJECT AT OLD RELEVANT AND FOR GAY ROADS. KITTY PRIVATES AT TULIP LANE WRITES, I HAVE LIVED AT THIS ADDRESS SINCE 2009 AND MY GRANDPARENTS LIVED HERE FOR SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE ME. I PROPERTY BACKS UP TO THE FIELD AND POND AREA THAT USED TO BE A HORSE PASTURE. I'M WRITING TODAY REGARDING PROPOSED REZONING FOR CYPRESS CREEK APARTMENTS. THIS IS DISCUSSED IN JULY AND VOTED DOWN.

20 NEIGHBORHOODS PRICE CYPRESS CREEK CAME BACK TO TRY AGAIN IN NOVEMBER.

THEY WERE AGAIN PUT IT DOWN BY UNANIMOUS VOTE AFTER DOZENS OF FLOWER HILL, EVERGREEN RESIDENCE, BIG 8 BUSINESS OWNERS AND OTHERS VOICE THEIR CONCERNS.

I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT THIS IS EVEN UP FOR DISCUSSION AGAIN.

THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS WHY THIS COMPLEX IS NOT A GOOD IDEA AT THIS LOCATION.

FIRST OF ALL, I BELIEVE THE PROXIMITY OF AN APARTMENT COMPLEX WILL NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE PROPERTY VALUES IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND THAT IT WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN CRIME IN THE AREA. WE ARE READY HAVE ISSUES WITH CAR BREAK-INS AND PROPERTY DAMAGE THAT RELEVANT POLICE CANNOT MITIGATE. SECOND, THERE WILL BE A LARGE INCREASE IN TRAFFIC IN THE AREA WHICH OF THE SMALL ROADS ARE NOT EQUIPPED TO HANDLE.

WE ARE READY HAVE INCREASED TRAFFIC FROM THE NEW OFFICES AND SENIOR LIVING.

FOR THE PNC IMMEDIATELY LEARNED THAT THE ROADS ARE NOT EVEN ON THE PLAN TO FIX FOR THE LEASE THE NEXT 5 YEARS. IMAGINE WHAT 5 YEARS DUE TO ROADS ARE ONLY SUSTAINING CURRENT TRAFFIC.

[01:55:28]

>> THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF YOUR DAY TO READ MY MESSAGE.I LOVE ROWLETT.

[01:55:38]

; AM WRITING TO VOICE MY OPINION IS A RESIDENT HERE ã WHILE THIS AREA HAS HEAVY

[01:55:43]

TRAFFIC FLOWS POOR INFRASTRUCTURE BY CHANGING THIS TO AN INFRASTRUCTURE WITH

[01:55:49]

MULTI-HOUSING IS EXTREMELY IRRESPONSIBLE OUR AREA IS OVERSATURATED IN OTHER AREAS SUCH AS ãTHAT WOULD BENEFIT FROM WAREHOUSING DIVERSITY THEY ARE SEEING DISPLACED WILDLIFE COYOTES, WHICH HAS CAUSED THE NEIGHBORHOOD PASS TO GO MISSING ALONG WITH LARGE TREE RATS IT'S IRRESPONSIBLE TO ADD 200+ HOUSING UNITS IN SUCH A SMALL AREA THIS THRIVING COMMERCIALLY WE WOULD ASK YOU TO PLEASE HONOR OUR REQUESTS ãIMPACTED TO VOTE NO IN AGREEMENT WITH THE BOARD TO QUESTION THIS LAND AND ãCOMMERCIALLY ZONED. RICHARD AND CINDY GOMEZ RIGHT, WE OPPOSE THE PROJECT ON THE PROPERTY OF ãFOR SUBSIDIZED MULTIFAMILY HOUSING I'M A PROPERTY OWNER AND TAXPAYER AND I FEEL THAT THIS PROPERTY IS USED FOR THIS PURPOSE THE PROPERTY VALUES WILL DECLINE APARTMENTS ATTRACT PEOPLE NOT INTERESTED IN A LONG-TERM RESIDENCE BUT ARE MORE TRANSITORY. THIS IS NOT WHAT OUR CITY NEEDS I AM CONCERNED THAT THIS WILL CAUSE AN INCREASE IN PROBLEMS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AND SURROUNDING BUSINESSES SUCH AS AN INCREASE OF ãTHE AREA WILL PUT A STRAIN ON FIRST RESPONDERS AND CAUSE ARE VULNERABLE CITIZENS TO FEEL UNSAFE AND ALSO IT WOULD INCREASE TRAFFIC ON THESE ROADS THEY CANNOT HANDLE IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THE DEVELOPERS ARE WILLING TO IMPROVE BIG A ROAD AND OLD ROWLETT ROAD. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE FLOWER HILL SUBDIVISION HAS BEEN HERE FOR 30+ YEARS WITH TAXPAYER DOLLARS COLLECTED PLENTY OF MONEY TO IMPROVE THOSE ROADS AND UNDERSTAND THAT DEVELOPERS HAVE DEEP POCKETS BUT DON'T SELL OUT THE ESTABLISHED NEIGHBORHOODS AND THEY PROMISE BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS THERE IS A COMMUNITY THAT WILL BE NEXT-DOOR HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE POSITION YOU ARE PUTTING OUR DEAR ELDERLY CITIZENS AND BY HAVING THEM EXPOSED TO CRIME AND TRAFFIC? I SEE THEM MANEUVER THEIR WHEELCHAIRS IN LANES OF TRAFFIC IF YOU ARE CONCERNED FOR THE CITIZENS THEY WOULD TAKE IT UPON THEMSELVES TO PUT IN AN APPROPRIATE SIDEWALK WE ARE EXPOSED TO HOMELESS PEOPLE THAT RIDE THE TRAIN TO THE END OF THE RYAN IN ROWLETT AND PANHANDLE AND SET UP MAKESHIFT TENTS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROADS IN OUR COUNTY I SEE THIS IS GETTING WORSE AND WILL BE THE DOWNFALL. I HAVE SEEN FIRSTHAND HOW NEIGHBORHOODS DETERIORATE WHEN THIS IS BROUGHT IN THEIR OTHER PLACES WHERE HOUSING OF THIS NATURE WOULD BE BETTER UTILIZED CONSIDERING THOSE LOCATIONS ã WHERE PEOPLE HAVE LIVED, WORKED AND SHOPPED FOR DECADES. AND RESIDENCE OF FLOUR HELLO NEIGHBORING SUBDIVISIONS AND TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION OUR FEELINGS IN VOTE NO TO THE CYPRUS ãTHANK YOU.

IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THERE IS ANOTHER PROPOSITION THAT HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY REJECTED FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION I WANT TO STATE THAT I COME IN I NEIGHBORING RESIDENT STRONGLY DISAGREE WITH THE COMPLEX BEING BUILT IN THIS LOCATION.

I HAVE LIVED IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT MOST OF MY LIFE IN A SMALL TOWN FEEL HAS STARTED TO DISSIPATE ONE THING THAT HAS STAYED IS A COMMUNITY. JACINTA GRETT COMMUNITIES HAVE HELPED ROWLETT HAVING A LARGE COMPANY COME IN TO DICTATE WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS NOT WHAT THE COMMUNITY WANTS. I AM NOT AGAINST BIG BUSINESS I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT MY LOCAL BUSINESS FIRST THIS LAND IS DESIGNATED FOR BUSINESS AND I WILL SUPPORT WHATEVER GETS PLACED THERE BUT I WILL NOT SUPPORT AN APARTMENT COMPLEX BEING THROWN TOGETHER FOR THE SAKE OF PROFIT I HAVE LIVED HERE BEFORE BEING A TENANT COMES SECOND TO THE BOTTOM LINE

[02:00:06]

OF MAKING AS MUCH PROFIT AS POSSIBLE AND THE CONSTRUCTION CANNOT SUPPORT WHAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED SO FAR WE HAVE AN OLD BEAT UP TWO LANE ROAD NAMED OLD ROWLETT ROAD THAT HAS TROUBLE SUPPORTING TRAFFIC IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THE DAY AFTER THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SENIOR LIVING CARE WE HAVE SEEN MORE CONGESTION ON OUR ROADS ADDING ADDITIONAL SINGLE-FAMILY UNITS WILL BE A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN. THIS ROAD IS NO BETTER CONTINUOUS TRAFFIC FROM TARGET HAS MADE THIS A POPULAR ROAD THAT HAS AFFECTED THE LIGHT AT BIG A IN ROW ãSERIOUS CONCERNS NEED TO BE ADDRESSED I GROW TIRED OF GIVING MY DISDAIN FOR THIS PROJECT BUT I WON'T EVER AGREE WITH THIS BEING A PRIME SPOT I HOPE THIS WILL BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.

>> MARY COBB WRITES NO IS NO TELL CYPRESS CREEK TO MOVE ON FLOWER HILLS SAYS NO RACHEL BOUGHT OFF SAID WE DON'T WANT THE 14.3 ACRE TRACT LOCATED ON THE EAST CORNER OF ROWLETT ROAD AND BIG A ROAD TO BE REZONED TO MULTI FAMILY SUBURBAN OR RETAIL USES STOP THIS INSANITY OUR CITY IS TURNING INTO GARLAND SINCE THE OTHER REZONING WE ARE NOTICING MORE HOMELESS ON THE STREETS AND MORE THEFT IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS. THERE ARE TOO MANY UNFILLED PROPERTIES THAT WILL EVENTUALLY TURN INTO ROADS. I DON'T HAVE TO SPELL OUT WHAT THAT MEANS TO OUR CITY DO THE RIGHT THING AND VOTE AGAINST US.

AND I AM OPPOSED TO THIS CYPRUS ãROWLETT TO REZONE A TRACK TO PLANNED DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT TO MULTI FAMILY SUBURBAN RETAIL USES TO DEVELOP THE PROPERTY WHERE USE IS CONSISTENT WITH MULTI- FAMILY DEVELOPMENT. EFUSE ANY FURTHER MEETINGS ON THE TOPIC AS IT WASTES CITY COUNCIL TIME AND IT HAS BEEN GIVEN ONCE ALREADY. HAVE A GREAT DAY.

RICHARD MAKE OSE THIS DEVELOPME AM A RESIDENT AT ãDEVELOPMENT OF THIS GROUP ADDRESS IN JANUARY AT OUR ANNUAL HOA MEETING CHICK-FIL-A SANDWICHES AND TRY TO BUY OUR SUPPORT SAYING THEY WOULD NEVER BUILD WHERE THEY ARE NOT WANTED. THAT WAS CLEARLY DISINGENUOUS AND THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT NEIGHBORS THEY HAVE LITTLE CREDIBILITY IN MY OPINION IT'S A SMALL ROAD FALLING INTO DISREPAIR PEOPLE SPEED IT'S GETTING BUSIER ALL THE TIME AND IS A DANGEROUS ROAD AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WITH THIS AREA WILL BE LIKE WITH SEVERAL MORE PEOPLE COMING AND GOING ON A DAILY BASIS I OPPOSE THIS DEVELOPMENT PLEASE STAND WITH YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS IN OPPOSING THIS DEVELOPMENT. THANK YOU.

SUE MAKE ASHTON AND RACHEL POWELL RIGHT, NO. I DON'T AGREE WITH ãLOCATED ã IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT DALLAS COUNTY TEXAS FOR LIMITED COMMERCAL RETAIL USE.

THANK YOU. SUE MCCLEARY TAYLOR WRITES, WE OPPOSE TO THE REQUEST I WOULD HOPE YOU RESPECT THE WISHES OF THE CITIZENS ON THIS IF YOU WANT TO SEE WHAT APARTMENTS DUE TO AN AREA LOOK NO FURTHER THAN SKILLMAN AND 635. ÃCOOK AT 6015 MADISON AVENUE RIGHTS I WOULD LIKE TO STATE MY OBJECTION TO THE PROPOSED TRACK FOR MULTI FAMILY SUBURBAN RETAIL USES I LIVE ON MADISON AVENUE AND IF THIS PROPERTY BECOMES THE OTHER APARTMENT COMPLEX IN ROWLETT WILL INCREASE THE TRAFFIC EVER SINCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF LAKE HILL SUBDIVISION THE TRAFFIC ON MADISON AVENUE HAS INCREASED IT WOULD ONLY BRING MORE VEHICLES CUTTING THROUGH AND CUTTING TO DORSEY. PEOPLE WHO USE IT AS A CUT THROUGH AND I THOUGHT THIS WAS ILLEGAL. IS THIS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT GOES THROUGH I LOOK FORWARD TO THE CITY HELPING OUT OUR ESTABLISHED CITIZENS IN NEIGHBORHOODS WITH SAFER STREETS FOR OUR FAMILIES I DON'T BELIEVE THE PEOPLE WHO USE NEIGHBORHOODS AS A CUT THROUGH LIKE THAT HAPPENING TO THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS AND THEIR FAMILIES IT'S TIME THAT OUR CITY LEADERS STEP OUT TO MAKE ROWLETT SAFER FOR ALL OF ITS CITIZENS. THAT IS THE LAST ONE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

[02:05:01]

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING THOSE. TAKE A DRINK.

SIT BACK. SO AT THIS TIME THERE IS STILL NOBODY IN LINE, IS THAT

CORRECT? NOT SEEING ANYBODY. >> THAT'S CORRECT.

I WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING COUNSEL AT THIS TIME I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION COUNCIL MEMBER.

READ AND HAVE A COMMENT AFTER. >> DO I HAVE A SECOND TO THE

MOTION? >> I WILL SECOND.

>> A MOTION AND A SECOND DISCUSSION. YOU SAID YOU HAD A COMMENT?

>> YES. FOR PERSONAL ãTHIS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT THIS HAS POTENTIAL TO BE.

OUT TO THE MASTER THOROUGHFARE PLAN WITH THAT SAID THIS WILL REMAIN AND WILL CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE AND THERE'S NO EXISTING PLAN AT THIS TIME AND THE CONCERN IS THE FACT THAT THERE ARE NO SIDEWALKS CAUSING SAFETY ISSUE FOR THOSE WISHING TO COMMUTE WITHOUT HAVING TO DRIVE AND THE REASON FOR ã SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENTS ARE AT CAPACITY TO HANDLE FURTHER MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENTS AT THIS MOMENT AS WE SEE IT TODAY OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT DOESN'T NEED ãFIREFIGHTERS ON PERSONAL ASSIGNMENT AND.

DEVELOPMENTS UNTIL SUCH CHALLENGES CONTINUE TO BE ADDRESSED MY FINAL REASON FOR RECOMMENDING THE DEVELOPMENT IS THAT I BELIEVE THE FUTURE IS CORRECT IN THE USE OF THIS PROPERTY AND RETAIL COMMERCIAL OFFICE AND I DON'T SEE REASON THAT THE USE SHOULD BE CHANGED AND RESPONSE TO THE PUBLIC, SO I WOULD EXPECT THAT THOSE SHARING THEIR GENUINE CONCERNS AND COMMENTS BUT I WANT TO EXPRESS MY DISAPPOINTMENT AT THOSE WHO STATED RENTERS DON'T HAVE A STAKE IN THIS COMMUNITY AND DON'T CONTRIBUTE TO THE LOCAL ECONOMY FOR THAT'S NOT ONLY BLATANTLY UNTRUE BUT THAT'S CRUEL AND UNFAIR THING TO SAY FOR THOSE WHO RENT IN THE COMMUNITY WHO HAVE JUST AS MUCH SAY IS ANYBODY ELSE. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU COUNCILMEMBER ALICE. COUNCIL MEMBER.

>> I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU AND I APPRECIATE YOUR WORDS IN WHICH YOU SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF ALL OF THIS AND I WANT TO THANK THE DEVELOPER BECAUSE I THINK YOU HAVE WORKED HARD OVER THE PAST NINE MONTHS BUT I THINK YOU ALL KNEW THIS WAS A LARGE UPHILL BATTLE FROM THE BEGINNING. WE HAD A CONVERSATION WE RAN INTO EACH OTHER AT THE GROCERY STORE AND FLOATED THIS IDEA OUT THERE AND I TOLD YOU WHAT I THOUGHT BACK THEN AND THERE ARE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT ARE OUT OF YOUR CONTROL THE LANDOWNER WON'T SELL AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT AND THIS IS JUST A PIECE THAT'S IN A REALLY HORRIBLE SPOT AND EVEN IF THE DEVELOPER PAID THE ENTIRE COST TO DO THE ROAD IMPROVEMENTS THE REST OF THOSE ROADS IN THAT AREA ARE CORRECT AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE INCREASE TRAFFIC AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WANT TO GET TO 66 AND THEY WILL CUT THROUGH BETWEEN WHERE THAT CENTER IS NOW THE OTHER ONE.

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO CUT THROUGH TARGET. THAT'S WHY THEY PUT SPEED BUMPS. IT'S A HARD SITE AND THE REASON THIS HASN'T DEVELOPED IS BECAUSE OF THOSE ROADS AND THIS PROBABLY WON'T DEVELOP UNTIL THE CITY IS READY TO PUT MONEY INTO THAT INFRASTRUCTURE OR UNTIL DEVELOPERS TRY TO BUILD THAT OUT BECAUSE THEY'RE GOING TO DO SOMETHING BIGGER. THE OTHER PIECES OF PROPERTY WE ARE TRYING TO DEVELOP I REALLY DO APPRECITE WHAT YOU HAVE TRIED TO DO I THINK YOU ARE STUCK BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE AND I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS MOTION.

>> I APPRECIATE YOUR, SIN WE DID KNOWS GOING TO BE A TOUGH ROAD TO HOE.

[02:10:07]

THIS DEVELOPER HAS GENERALLY SHOWN AN INTEREST IN TRYING TO DO ANYTHING POSSIBLE AS A PUBLIC HEARING SESSION WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF THEM BUILDING THAT ENTIRE SECTION ON BOTH SIDES AND HAVING THE CITY ADDRESS THE REST OF THAT SO THEY COULD BE DONE A LOT MORE EXPEDITIOUSLY AND I KNOW PREVIOUSLY WE HAD ALLOWED COMMENTS AFTER PUBLIC HEARING TO ADDRESS CONCERN BUT I AM SENSING THAT'S NOT BEING ALLOWED AT THIS TIME.

>> I THINK EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SAID AHEAD OF TIME I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE COULD BE ADDED.

WE ARE TAKING COMMENTS FROM COUNSEL RIGHT NOW. COUNCILMAN BELL?

>> I JUST WANT TO SAY I DO SUPPORT THE HOUSING WORKFORCE WITH THIS LOCATION IS NOT RIGHT FOR THIS PARTICULAR COMPLEX I AM THINKING ABOUT THE ROADS I AM THINKING ABOUT AND RIGHT NOW THE ROADS ARE JUST BAD AND THE CITY I KNOW WE ARE GOING TO BE DOING HALF OF IT THEY ARE GOING TO BE DOING HALF BUT I ALSO HAVE TO CONSIDER THE OTHER PORTION.

I DON'T THINK THE MILLION DOLLARS WILL TAKE CARE OF THOSE OLD ROADS.

AND I ALSO AGREE WITH BLAKE THAT RENTERS DO CONTRIBUTE TO THE CITY.

THEY REALLY DO AND THAT'S OFFENSIVE TO SAY THAT. WITH ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT

IT. >> APPROXIMATELY IF I REMEMBER THIS CORRECTLY 10 PERCENT OF OUR SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES ARE RENTAL HOMES IN THIS COMMUNITY AND THAT SLOW COMPARED TO A LOT OF COMMUNITIES. PEOPLE THINK THAT OUR RENTERS ARE ONLY IN THE NEW MULTIFAMILY DEVELOPMENTS AND THAT IS JUST NOT TRUE.

WE HAVE OVER 2000 SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL UNITS IN THIS TOWN THE LAST TIME I CHECKED THEM OUT AS A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. I'M NOT SURE WHO RAISED THEIR HAND FIRST.

I WILL CALL COUNCILWOMAN BROWN FIRST.

>> I JUST WANTED TO SAY AND I THINK YOU KNOW THIS. I AM A STRONG SUPPORTER OF HAVING AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN OUR CITY. WE NEED IT.

WE ARE WOEFULLY BEHIND AND I KNOW IT'S TOUGH WHEN YOU FOUND A GOOD DEVELOPER WHICH THESE FOLKS SEEM TO BE TO FIND THE RIGHT LOCATION THE RIGHT UNIT MIX, THE RIGHT NUMBER OF UNITS FOR THIS BUT UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS JUST NOT THE SPOT I APPRECIATE ALL OF THE COMMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE BY MY FELLOW COUNCILMEMBERS I AGREE WITH EVERY ONE OF THEM I APPRECIATE ALL OF THE CITIZENS WHO TOOK THE TIME WHY DO YOU WANT TO REITERATE A VALUABLE COMPONENT OF OUR COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTE MUCH WITH PROPERTY TAXES THEY MAY NOT WRITE THAT CHECK DIRECTLY BUT THEY PAY THAT THROUGH THE RENT AND WE WANT TO ATTRACT RENTAL PROPERTIES AND EVEN MULTI-FAMILIES ESPECIALLY FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO THE CITY SO THIS DISAPPOINTING ON MANY FRONTS BECAUSE WE DO NEED THE HOUSING BUT I AGREE WITH MY FELLOW COUNCILMEMBERS AND CITIZENS THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE WHAT I APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK YOU DID ON INCLUDING OUR DEVELOPMENT SERVICES I NOW THEY WORKED VERY HARD TO PUT THIS TOGETHER BUT I WILL BE IN SUPPORT OF THIS MOTION. PAYMENT COUNCILMAN ã

>> MORE OF THE SAME I GUESS WHEN WE NEED TO SUPPORT A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN IF WE HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR A REASON IF EVERY PROJECT THAT COMES ALONG MEANS WE HAVE TO CHANGE

[02:15:05]

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OR CHANGE THE DEVELOPMENT CODE, WHY DO WE HAVE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE? I AM LIKE EVERYONE ELSE I AM IN SUPPORT OF THE WORKFORCE HOUSING AND TO THE PEOPLE WHO THINK NO ONE LIVES IN THE APARTMENTS THE LAST REPORT WE

GOT IS THE APARTMENTS ARE 92 PERCENT FULL SO >> AND I WAS GOING TO MENTION THAT WE GET QUARTERLY REPORTS ON OCCUPANCY FOR ALL OF OUR PROPERTIES AND THE SEPTEMBER ã QUARTER AND WE HAD 92 PERCENT OCCUPANCY ON ALL MULTIFAMILY UNITS SO THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THAT UP AND I WANT TO SUPPLEMENT THAT WITH AN ADDITIONAL PIECE OF INFORMATION THE AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD INCOME FOR THE RESIDENTS OF THOSE APARTMENTS AT SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 WAS OVER HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PROPOSAL WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THAT SITUATION BECAUSE THIS WAS A WORKFORCE HOUSING PROPOSAL BUT WE HAVE A MARKET RATE WITH PROPERTIES AND WE HAVE VERY HIGH END INCOME ãIN THOSE PROPERTY AND THAT IS NOT WHAT IS ATTRACTING CRIME TO THAT COMMUNITY I ALSO WANTED TO MENTION THAT.

>> I'M DONE. >>

>> I DON'T SEE ANY OTHER HANDS UP SO THE MOTION ON THE TABLE IS TO DENY THE APPLICATIONS TO ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THIS DENIAL, RAISE YOUR HAND. AND THAT IS A 7-0 VOTE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. I'M SORRY IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT FOR ALL THE REASONS WE TALKED ABOUT. SUMI DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING? I THOUGHT I SAW YOU RAISE YOUR HAND. THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

WE ARE GOING TO DO, LET ME ASK THIS, SHOULD WE TAKE A BREAK BEFORE THE NEXT PUBLIC HEARING ITEM? IS IT A LONG ONE OR A SHORT ONE?

IS IT SHORT? >> WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO WE

THANK YOU LAURA. THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS REFLECTED IN THE RECTANGLE ON THE SLIDE IN FRONT OF YOU IT'S A CONVENIENCE STORE WITH GASOLINE SALES AND IT'S ASKING TO RAISE THE EXISTING FACILITY AND REDEVELOP IT WITH MURPHY OIL USA GAS STATION AND CONVENIENCE STORE THE DEVELOPMENT CODE REQUIRES A SPECIAL USE PERMIT FOR A STORE WITH GAS AND THE C-2 ZONING DISTRICT. A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND REGARDING THIS IT WAS DEVELOPED UNDER THE REGIONAL RETAIL ZONING ESTABLISHED IN 2001 UNDER THE 2001 DEVELOPMENT CODE WHICH ALLOWED STORES WITH GASOLINE DID NOT REQUIRE AN SEP HOWEVER WE ADOPTED THE CURRENT DEVELOPMENT CODE IN 2006 THIS REQUIREMENT WAS ADDED REDEVELOPMENT OF THE SITE AS I MENTIONED WILL REQUIRE A ã COMPLIANT WITH ALL CODES AND ORDINANCES. THIS SLIDE IN FRONT OF YOU GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT IS DEVELOPED ON-SITE APPROXIMATELY .7 ACRES AND 86 FEET OF FRONTAGE ABOUT 245 FEET IT IS

[02:20:03]

DEVELOPED CURRENTLY WITH FOUR GAS PUMP STATIONS, THREE PARKING PLACES, 290 SQUARE-FOOT RETAIL BUILDING AND A CANOPY OVER THE PUMPS.

SITE IS VIA MUTUAL ACCESS TO THE NORTHWEST WHICH CONNECTS TO LINCOLN PARKWAY TO THE SOUTH.

THERE IS A APPROXIMATELY A 24 INCH CALIBER OAKTREE THESE TREES WILL BE INCORPORATED AT THE TIME OF SITE DEVELOPMENT. THIS GIVES YOU A GOOD COMPARISON OF WHAT'S BEING PROPOSED WHEN THE SITE IS RAISED AGAIN AN INCREASE IN THE GAS PUMP 4 TO 8 IN INCREASE IN THE CANOPY AREA CONVENIENCE STORE HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY TO 1400 SQUARE FEET IN THE AREA SIDEWALK ON LAKEVIEW PARKWAY WILL BE PROVIDED AND THE ADJACENT ACCESS EASEMENT TO THE WEST AND THE DEDICATION OF A LANDSCAPE BUFFER ALONG THE EAST NORTH AND WEST PROPERTY LIENS THESE ARE IMPORTANT BUFFERS ADJACENT TO SIMILAR ZONING AND 20 FEET ALONG LAKEVIEW PARKWAY AND THAT IMAGE IS PROVIDED TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT THE FACILITY WOULD LOOK LIKE AS I MENTIONED IN INCREASE IN.

AT THIS TIME AND AN INCREASE CANOPY COVER PRIMARILY TO ACCOMMODATE THE INCREASE IN SERVICES AND THE DISTRICT DOES NOT HAVE MAXIMUM LOT COVERAGE THE REQUESTED INCREASE WOULD NOT FIND ANY DIMENSIONAL REQUIREMENTS YOU CAN SEE THERE IS A VIEW OF THE SIDEWALK CONDITION AND IT STOPS AND COMPLETION OF THE SIDEWALK ALONG LAKEVIEW PARKWAY RASH ALONG THE NORTHERN SIDE OF LAKEVIEW PARKWAY ALSO INDIVIDUALS TRAVELING WITH AN IMPROVED SURFACE THAT YOU CAN SEE CURRENTLY THERE IS NO WALKWAY RESULTING IN USES.

THIS IS THE VIEW OF THE EXISTING CANOPY AND ãTO THE EAST.

THAT'S APPROXIMATELY A 24 INCH OAKTREE TO THE WEST OF THE PROPERTY AND A ãTREE TO THE RIGHT. WE DID FOLLOW THE NOTIFICTION REQUIREMENTS WITH A 200 FOOT NOTIFICATION PUBLIC NOTICE LET ME START AGAIN.T HAS BEEN A LONG NIGHT.

NOTICES WERE SENT WITHIN 200 FEET RADIUS OF THE PROPERTY EIGHT NOTICES WERE SENT AND 14 AND A 500 FOOT RADIUS. NO RESPONSES WERE RECEIVED. NEXT SLIDE.

PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION SOUGHT RECOMMENDED APPROVAL OF THIS REQUEST AT THEIR NOVEMBER 24 MEETING. STAFF IS RECOMMENDING APPROVAL TO ALLOW FOR A CONVENIENCE STORE WITH GAS PUMPS.

ALLOW FOR CASH OF THE PROPERTY THAT HAS NOT BEEN ALTERED SINCE 2001 APPROVAL WILL ILLUMINATE

[02:25:06]

OVERSIGHT AND WILL BRING IT INTO COMPLIANCE WITH THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT CODE WHICH IS LANDSCAPING AND SIGNAGE SETBACKS IN ADDITION TO THAT IS YOU CAN SEE THE SITE IS CURRENTLY LANDSCAPED IN ADDITIONAL LANDSCAPING WILL BE ADVANTAGEOUS.

I WILL TRY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
