[8A. Consider action to approve a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a Facilities Agreement between the City of Rowlett, Texas, and Warner Land Advisors, LP, in the amount of $1,053,405 for the installation and construction of off-site wastewater infrastructure to serve the Trails at Cottonwood Creek development generally located on the northeast corner of Vinson Road and Stonewall Road in the City of Rowlett, Dallas and Rockwall Counties, Texas.]

THROUGHOUT OUR COMMUNITY. THE NEXT ITEM IS ITEM 8 A, CONSIDER ACTION TO APPROVE A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO EXECUTE A FACILITIES GREEN BETWEEN THE CITY OF ROWLETT, TEXAS TO WARNER LAND ADVISORY BOARD IN THE AMOUNT OF $1,053,405.

GOOD EVENING. GOOD EVENING MAYOR. >> I WAS EXPECTING MINNOL.

SINCE WHEN YOU ARE IN THE BACK ROW? THAT'S JUST WRONG.

WE ARE GLAD YOU ARE HERE, THANK YOU. >> GOOD TO BE HERE.

SO I HAVE PREPARED A LITTLE PRESENTATION ABOUT ITEM A. THIS IS A CONSIDERATION OF A FACILITIES AGREEMENT FOR UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE THAT WILL SERVE THE TRAILS OF COTTONWOOD CREEK.

LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE BACKGROUND FIRST. WARNER LAND ADVISORS IS PROPOSING A 238 ACRE RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD. IT WILL HAVE 765 SINGLE-FAMILY LOTS. IT FRONTS ON STONE WALL ROAD. IT ALSO FRONTS ON VINSON ROAD.

THERE IS A LITTLE OVER 22 ACRES OF FLOOD PLAIN AND 26 ACRES OF OPEN SPACE.

THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT WAS AMENDED AND APPROVED BY COUNCIL ON OCTOBER 8TH, LAST WEEK.

SO WARNER IS REQUESTING A FACILITIES AGREEMENT TO EXTEND, UPSIZE THE CITY'S WASTEWATER.

THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT DOES NOT INCLUDE STORMWATER INFRASTRUCTURE.

ONLY OFF-SITE WASTEWATER INFRASTRUCTURE. SO SOME OF THE DETAILS OF THE FACILITY AGREEMENT ARE AS FOLLOWS. THEY ARE GOING TO EXTEND A 15-INCH GRAVITY MAIN FROM THE ENCLAVE UP TO THE DEVELOPMENT. THEY WILL UPGRADE LIFT STATION TWO, LOCATED IN THE ENCLAVE. UPSTAGE A GRAVITY MAIN TO AN 18-INCH GRAVITY MAIN AND UPGRADE LIFT STATION 1 ON MCCLEARY ROAD. THE ESTIMATED CONSTRUCTION COST OF ALL OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS IS $2.142 MILLION, WHICH IS BASED ON WARNER'S COST PROJECTIONS. TO THE POINT OF THE AGREEMENT IS FOR TO SHARE THE CITY AND THE DEVELOPER TO SHARE IN THE COST OF THE IMPROVEMENTS.

THAT WILL HAPPEN BY THE CITY CREDITING WASTEWATER IMPACT FEES FOR ALL, THE LOTS THAT ARE CREATED BY THE DEVELOPMENT. THE WASTEWATER IMPACT FEES CURRENTLY ARE $1,377 PER LOT.

WELL WILL BE 765 LOTS. THE TOTAL IMPACT FEE CONTRACT TO THE DEVELOPER WILL BE $1.053 MILLION. SORRY. LET ME GET INTO SOME OF THE MORE DETAILS OF THESE WATER WATER UPGRADES. THE FIRST ELEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT IS TO EXTEND THE 15 INCH GRAVITY MAIN FROM THE ENCLAVE UP TO THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE ENCLAVE IS DOWN HERE.

YOU CAN SEE THE SOLID GREEN LINE REPRESENTS EXISTING SEWER NETWORK.

IT TERMINATES NEAR THE NORTHERN END OF THE ENCLAVE AND THE DEVELOPER WILL CONSTRUCT THE NEW 15-INCH LINE FROM THE ENCLAVE UP ALONG COTTON CREEK TO THE SOUTHERN BOUNDARY OF THE PROPERTY. THE NEXT ELEMENT MOVING SOUTH, THE DEVELOPMENT IS UP HERE.

MOVING SOUTH HERE'S THE ENCLAVE. THERE IS A LIFT STATION THAT SERVES THAT NOW.

[00:35:05]

THIS IS THE NUMBER 2 UPGRADE IN THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT. THE DEVELOPER WILL UPGREAT THIS LIFT STATION AND THE THREE-INCH FORCE MAIN THAT DISCHARGES TO THIS POINT RIGHT HERE.

NEXT IS AN UPSIZE OF EXISTING LINE. SO THIS IS THE WATER'S EDGE DEVELOPMENT. THIS IS WATER VIEW. AND THE GOLF COURSE.

AND THERE IS A SHORT PIECE MAYBE 400 FEET OF 12-INCH LINE THAT NEEDS TO BE EXPANDED TO AN 18-INCH LINE TO ACCOMMODATE THE NEW PROJECTED FLOWS. RIGHT NOW THIS 12 INCH LINE HANDLES, ACCEPTS FLOWS FROM WATER VIEW DEVELOPMENT PLUS THE THREE INCH FORCE MAIN COMING DOWN FROM THE ENCLAVE. AND FINALLY, AT THE VERY SOUTHERN DOWN STREAM END, I'M SORRY, IS THE NORTH SIDE LIFT STATION NUMBER ONE. THAT TOO WILL BE UPGRADED BY THE DEVELOPER AS PART OF THIS AGREEMENT. THIS IS LOCATED ON MCCLEARY ROAD. THIS IS DOWN ROCK ROAD AS IT BENDS AROUND AND CONTINUES ON DOWN THROUGH TOWN. SO, SO LET ME EXPLAIN SOME OF THE BENEFITS WE ARE REIMBURSING THE DEVELOPER THROUGH A CREDIT OF IMPACT FEES. WHAT DOES THE CITY GET IN RETURN? THERE IS THE NEW 15-INCH GRAVITY MAIN THAT WILL BE BUILT FROM THE ENCLAVE UP TO THE DEVELOPMENT. THAT WILL HAVE CAPACITY TO ALSO SERVE ROUGHLY THE DOZEN HOMES THAT ARE WITHIN THE CITY ON STONE WALL AND A PORTION OF VINSON ROAD.

ALSO, THAT SAME AREA SHOULD THAT AREA DEVELOP IN THE FUTURE, AND ACCORDANCE WITH THE CURRENT SF 40 ZONING, THAT 15-INCH LINE CAN ACCOMMODATE THAT FLOW AS WELL. ALSO, THE NORTH SIDE LIFT STATION WHICH WAS AT THE VERY SOUTHERN END OF THE PROJECT, IS CURRENTLY HAS A POTENTIAL TO SURCHARGE DURING PEEK EXISTING WET WEATHER FLOWS. THAT MEANS THAT DURING THAT TYPE OF EVENT WHICH IS DURING WET WEATHER AND DURING A PEAK TIME FOR FLOWS, THE WET WELL IN THE LIFT STATION COULD RISE ABOVE THE LOWEST INCOMING GRAVITY LINE AND THAT DOES NOT COMPLY WITH TCEQ RULES. THE FACILITY AGREEMENT WOULD PROVIDE FOR A TOTAL UPGRADE OF THIS LIFT STATION AND NOT ONLY ACCOMMODATE THE TRAILS DEVELOPMENT AND THE PORTION OF VINSON AND STONEWALL ROAD BUT ALSO BRING THE LIFT STATION INTO COMPLIANCE WITH TCEQ RULES.

ONE THING I DIDN'T PUT ON THE SLIDE. ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE TO LOOK AT, IF THE TRAILS PROJECT WOULD NOT BE, WAS NOT PROPOSED IN ORDER TO STIMULATE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA AS A CAPITOL PROJECT, THAT PROJECT WOULD BE $2.1 MILLION TO THE CITY.

WE ARE RECEIVING THAT PROJECT, THAT PROJECT WILL BE BUILT AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO USE THE IMPACT MONEYS THAT WE WOULD HAVE SPENT ON THAT PROJECT ON OTHER PROJECTS.

AND SO WITH THAT, OUR RECOMMENDATION TONIGHT IS TO APPROVE THE RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO EXECUTE A FACILITIES AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF ROWLETT, TEXAS AND WARNER LAND ADVISORS IN AN AMOUNT $1,053,405 TO SEVEN THE TRAILS AT COTTONWOOD CREEK IN THE CITY OF ROWLETT, DALLAS AND ROCKWALL COUNTIES, TEXAS. WITH THAT, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO

ANSWER QUESTIONS. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, JEFF. WE REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

SO COUNCIL, OPEN IT UP FOR QUESTIONS. COUNCIL MEMBER MARGOLIS.

>> WILL THE CITY WAVE THE FEES AT ONE FIVE OR WILL WARNER RECEIVE THE $1 MILLION AT ONE

[00:40:04]

TIME? >> SO IMPACT FEES ARE ASSESSED AT PLATTING.

AND THEY ARE NORMALLY COLLECTED AT BUILDING PERMIT. >> GOT IT.

SO YES, WHEN THEY COME IN FOR A BUILDING PERMIT, THE FEES WOULD BE CREDITD AND WAIVED.

THERE'S NOT A CASH INFLOW. IT'S WAIVED AT THAT TIME, PROPERTY BY PROPERTY.

COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH. >> I AM HOPING YOU DIDN'T SAY THIS IS SEWER AND NOT

STORMWATER. >> THAT IS CORRECT. HOW WE WILL MANAGE THAT?

>> THIS FACILITY AGREEMENT FIRST OF ALL IS AN OFF SITE UTILITIES. COTTONWOOD CREEK FLOWS AND HOW IT'S HANDLED IS THE RESPONSIBILITY UP TO THE DESIGN OF THEIR ENGINEERS.

I AM IMAGINING THAT COTTONWOOD CREEK WOULD RECEIVE FLOWS FROM THE DEVELOPMENT AND CONTINUE TO

FLOW INTO LAKE RAY HUBBARD. >> THE POINT IS WE'RE NOT REIMBURSING THEM FOR THEIR COST

TO MANAGE STORMWATER? >> CORRECT. >> THEY STILL HAVE TO MANAGE

WITHIN OUR REQUIREMENTS >> CORRECT. OKAY.

AND THAT WOULD MEAN EITHER LIKE COULD BE ON DETENTION, IT COULD BE, IT CAN BE ON SITE.

THEY CAN'T LET THE WATER FLOW DOWN STREAM. THEY HAVE TO DO STUFF ON THEIR

SITE TO BE ABLE TO MITIGATE. >> THEY HAVE TO MEET OUR REQUIREMENTS.

>> THIS AGREEMENT IS ABOUT A FACILITIES AGREEMENT TO WAIVE THE IMPACT FEES TO COST SHARE

FOR THE OFF SITE WASTEWATER INFRASTRUCTURE. >> YES.

IT DOESN'T CHANGE ANYTHING IN REGARDS TO THE REQUIREMENTS WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENT AND DOWN

STREAM FROM THE DEVELOPMENT. >> THAT IS CORRECT. >> THAT WAS A QUESTION AND THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING IT. YES. ARE YOU GOOD?

>> YEAH. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT. >> COUNCIL MEMBER BROWN.

>> SO I JUST WANTED TO MAKE ONE POINT AND IT'S BEEN MADE HERE BEFORE AND IT'S WORTH REPEATING.

SOMETIMES WHEN WE WAIVE THESE IMPACT FEES AND I KNOW THAT MAYBE SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE WATCHING MAY WONDER HOW DOES THIS HELP ME, AND I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT WHEN THIS COMMUNITY IS BUILT OUT, IT WILL ADD ABOUT $1.8 MILLION TO OUR TAX BASE AND SO, IT'S A GOOD THING FOR ALL OF OUR COMMUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS AND IT'S REALLY A WIN-WIN BECAUSE IT'S HELPING US DEVELOP OUR INFRASTRUCTURE AND HAVING PRIVATE PARTNERS TO

THAT. >> OKAY. >> I HAVE SEVERAL QUESTIONS.

COUNCIL MEMBER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OKAY.

SO WHAT OTHER IMPACT FEES WILL WE BE RECEIVING AS A RESULT OF THIS DEVELOPMENT?

>> WE WILL BE RECEIVING ROAD WAY IMPACT FEE. WE WILL NOT RECEIVE WATER

IMPACT. IT WILL BE SERVED BY EAST FORK. >> DO WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF RIDE IMPACT FEES WE WILL BE DEVELOPING? IF WE DON'T KNOW, CAN SOMEBODY

COMPUTE IT? >> ANGIE, YOU GOT THAT? I THINK --

>> IT'S GOING TO BE SERVICE AREA ONE. >> OKAY.

SO WE WILL COME BACK TO THAT ANSWER. YOU WERE VERY SPECIFIC IN MENTIONING OFF-SITE WASTEWATER AND YOU EMPHASIZED IT. REPEAT THAT AND EXPLAIN IT MORE.

>> THIS FACILITY AGREEMENT CONCERNS OFF-SITE WASTEWATER. ALL OF THE ON SITE LIKE STORMWATER AND ROADS ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPER AND THEY WILL HAVE TO MEET OUR REQUIREMENTS AND STANDARDS. THE $2.1 MILLION, IS THE ESTIMATED DEVELOPERS ESTIMATED

COST FOR OFF SITE WATER WASTE IMPROVEMENTS? >> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> HOW HAVE WE LOOKED AT IT? DO WE AGREE? >> I LOOKED AT THEIR COST

ESTIMATES AND I'M COMFORTABLE WITH THEM. >> WE DON'T THINK THAT'S WAY

OVER >> NO. OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. SO, OUR CURRENT IMPACT FEES PER HOUSE IS $1,377.

I THINK WE WILL BE DOING AN UPDATE TO THAT IMPACT FEE SCHEDULE AT SOME POINT.

[00:45:05]

>> DO WE ANTICIPATE -- >> YES WE WILL BE. WILL THAT BE GOING UP OR DOWN OR

WHAT DO WE KNOW? >> I DON'T KNOW AT THIS POINT. BUT I DO KNOW THAT THE AGREEMENT SAYS THAT IT WILL BE, THAT THE CALCULATION WILL BE BASED ON THE CURRENT RATE.

>> OKAY. ALL RIGHT. AND IT WILL BE MAXED AT THE CURRENT RATE TIMES NUMBER OF HOUSES. NOT MAXED AT $1,053,000 IF

THERE'S LESS HOUSES? 1.053. >> I'M SAYING WHAT IF WE DON'T

BUILD 745 HOUSES. >> THEY'RE ONLY GOING TO GET THE IMPACT WAIVED PER HOUSE.

>> JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT'S HOW THE AGREEMENT IS WRITTEN. OKAY.

THE 15 INCH MAIN IS BIG ENOUGH TO DEVELOP 41 ACRES AT SF 40. NOBODY IS BUILDING SF 40 ANYMORE AND A ANOTHER GENERAL QUESTION. HOW COMFORTABLE ARE WE THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO GO BACK IN AS A CITY AND TEAR SOME OF THIS OUT AND PUT BIGGER LINES IN FOR THE REST OF THE

DEVELOPMENT IN THE SF 40 THING CONCERNS ME. >> SO, AND CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG, DAVID, BUT THE WAY I UNDERSTAND THE AGREEMENT, WE STILL HAVE TO WORK OUT THE DESIGN OF EVERYTHING AND WE CAN, WE CAN UPSIDE THAT LINE IF WE FEEL THAT IT'S NECESSARY.

RIGHT NOW THE CURRENT ZONING DOESN'T INDICATE THAT. BUT THE OTHER THING TO KEEP IN MIND IS THAT THERE IS A 15, THE NEW 15 INCH LINE, COMING DOWN FROM THE PROPERTY ALONG COTTONWOOD CREEK AND CONNECTING IN, THAT SYSTEM IS A 15-INCH NOW.

WE COULD PUT IN A LARGER LINE, WE COULD HAVE THE DEVELOPER CONSTRUCT A LARGER LINE NOW.

BUT, AT SOME POINT, THAT 15 INCH LINE, IF WE, IF THOSE, THAT 41 ACRES DEVELOPS INTO SOMETHING OTHER THAN SF 40, THAT EXISTING 15-INCH LINE WOULD HAVE TO BE UPSIZED.

CAN YOU PULL UP THAT PAGE AGAIN? THAT SHOWS THAT. I AM INTERESTED --

>> THIS ONE? >> GO ONE LATER. SO, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

EVERYTHING FROM ENCLAVE UP TO THE HASHTAG? >> YES.

THAT IS THE EXISTING 15-INCH LINE. AND THEN THE NEW LINE IS NORTH

OF THAT. >> THE DASHED LINE. CAN YOU GO TO THE SLIDE THAT SHOWS THE NEW LINE. OKAY. YEAH.

I JUST -- YEAH, I'M JUST WORRIED THAT, I MEAN FOR US TO MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON SF 40 ZONING FOR UNDEVELOPED LAND I THINK IS SHORT SIDED. MAYOR, FIRST AND FOREMOST, THAT'S THE CURRENT ZONING. YOU'RE BRINGING UP THE POINT IF A DEVELOPER CAME IN AND SAYS WE WANT TO GO TO SF SOMETHING ELSE AND WILL REQUIRE MORE DENSITY AND GOING TO REQUIRE MORE SEWER, THEY MAY OR MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONNECT TO THE LINE. THEY MAY HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER SOLUTION. WHAT THEY ARE SAYING, IF IT REMAINS SF 40, THIS LINE SHOULD BE BIG ENOUGH. THE QUESTION IS, YOU KNOW IF WE WERE TO TRY TO EXPAND IT BEYOND THAT, FOR SOMETHING THAT MAY OR MAY NOT EVER HAPPEN, I GUESS I HAVE TO RAISE THAT ISSUE.

>> IT'S NOT A PERFECT WORLD. >> IT'S NOT. I GET THAT.

>> OKAY. SO IF YOU SAID THE FINAL DESIGN OR FINAL DESIGN NEEDS TO BE MADE

AND AGREED TO BY BOTH PARTIES. >> YES. WHAT IF THE FINAL DESIGN COMES IN AT $2.5 MILLION. THIS AGREEMENT IS MAXING US AT $1,000,053 AND THEY HAVE TO PROVIDE. DOES THAT AGREEMENT COMMIT THEM TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE SEWAGE UP TO

[00:50:01]

THEIR NEW SITE WITHOUT US CONTRIBUTING MORE? >> YES.

>> THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. SO SPEAK.

COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH. >> YEAH, I'M HAVING A HARD TIME. THAT WAS ONE OF MY QUESTIONS TOO. YOU KNOW BASING THAT OFF SF 40. IF WE DID AN 18 THERE AND OTHER STUFF CAME IN AND WE HAD TO INCREASE THE EXISTING 15 TO 18, THAT WOULD BE CHEAPER IN THE FUTURE, FUTURE IMPACT FEES SOMEWHERE ELSE TO PROBABLY TAKE CARE OF THAT THAN TO TAKE CARE OF THE WHOLE STRETCH OF 18. I WOULD BE CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT THE COST DIFFERENCE IS BETWEEN A 15 AND 18 BECAUSE IT'S NOT GOING TO DEVELOP SF 40. IT'S JUST NOT.

NOBODY IS BUILDING THAT WAY AND THE MAYOR IS CORRECT ON THAT. IF WE HAVE SEWER IN THE AREA, IT MAY MAKE IT MORE INVITING FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. I THINK IT'S WORTH LOOKING AT.

BRIAN. >> WHEN WE GET INTO THIS ELEMENT AND WITH THE DESIGN, WE COULD IN A CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT, WE COULD BID AN ALTERNATIVE FOR ANOTHER CAPACITY THAT WOULD BE I GUESS MORE IN LINE WITH WHERE DEVELOPMENT IS HEADING. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S, HOW MUCH MORE THAT WOULD ADD, BUT YOU COULD DO AN ALTERNATE BID AND YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT DESIGN.

YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT A DESIGN WOULD LIKE SF 5. SO THAT WOULD ADD ADDITIONAL

COST JUST TO FIGURE THAT PART OUT. >> IF WE WENT LET'S SAY TO 18-INCH, YES, WE COULD BUILD AN ALTERNATE LIKE THAT. AND WE COULD BACK CALCULATE TO SEE WHAT THAT 18 INCH COULD CARRY. WE COULD PRESUME A DENSITY AND LOOK AT WHAT SIZE LINE WE NEED. THE THING I WAS PRESUMING IS THAT WHATEVER WE MAKE THIS DASHED LINE, THE EXISTING LINE WOULD NEED TO BE UPSIZED AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FUTURE DEVELOPER.

>> SO THAT'S THE OTHER QUESTION. IS NOW WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE EXISTING LINE.

IF YOU BUILD 18 INCHES NOW AND IN THE FUTURE WHAT HAPPENS WITH YOUR EXISTING?

NOT TO MENTION THE LIFT STATIONS ABOUT TO BE UPGRADED. >> AND IF THEY WERE, IF WE UPGRADED THEM RIGHT NOW, TO THE SF 40 LEVEL, AND A FUTURE DEVELOPER CAME IN AND NEEDED TO

UPSIDE THEM MORE, HE WOULD BE REQUIRED TO UPSIDE THEM. >> REALISTICALLY, THESE PROPERTIES, THE REMAINING SF 40 IS VERY SMALL AS OPPOSED TO THE PROJECT WE'RE ABOUT TO APPROVE.

>> THAT'S MY POINT. IF YOU CAN KNOCK IT OUT NOW, WHY NOT TEAR IT UP AND HAVE THE

ADDITIONAL COST? >> PART OF MY POINT IS THIS FACILITY AGREEMENT WILL EXTEND THE LINE FROM THE ENCLAVE TO SITE. IF WE WERE TO UPSIZE IT, SOMEONE HAS TO HELP PAY FOR THE COST TO UPSIZE THE EXISTING LINE LATER. YOU WOULDN'T DO THAT NOW.

IT'S FAR SIGHTED TO THINK ABOUT IT THAT WAY. AND CERTAINLY WOULD GIVE US

ADDITIONAL CAPACITY. >> I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT.

COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH. >> THIS IS AN EDITORIAL, THIS DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME IN THE MAKING. WE HAD THE WHOLE HISTORY LAST TIME.

WE'RE PIECEMEALING THIS A LITTLE AT A TIME. IT KEEPS SEEMING LIKE WE'RE APPROVING THIS AND WE'RE GOING TO APPROVE THIS AND DON'T KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO APPROVE BECAUSE THE PLAN ISN'T EVEN DONE. SEEMS LIKE WE'RE GETTING THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE.

I THOUGHT AFTER THE MAYOR'S COMMENTS LAST TIME, THIS IS IN A FLOOD PLAIN AROUND A CREEK AND YOU DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER FOR THAT BECAUSE THE PLAN IS NOT DONE.

IT'S LIKE HOW CAN WE GET OUR DUCKS IN A ROW AND MOVE FORWARD? >> QUESTION, WHY DO WE NEED THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT AT THIS TIME? ARE YOU TRYING TO ANSWER THAT?

>> I WAS GOING TO MAKE A COMMENT. NOT TRYING TO ANSWER A QUESTION.

>> DO YOU WANT TO MAKE THE COMMENT BEFORE SOMEBODY ANSWERS THE QUESTION?

>> GO FOR IT. >> MY ONLY POINT IS, A LOT OF LAND USE DECISIONS ARE BASED ON, ARE NOT BASED ON ACTUAL PLAN. THE ONLY TIME WE REALLY SEEM TO GET THAT IS WHEN IT'S AN ACTUAL PLAN DEVELOPMENT WHERE THEY COME IN AND SAY HERE'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO, IF YOU APPROVE THIS

[00:55:05]

ZONING. THIS IS EXACTLY IT. ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE IS CONTAINED WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENT CODE ITSELF. SO, WHETHER IT'S FORM BASED CODE, SF 40. ALL OF THAT TELLS YOU WHAT YOU CAN DO AND DOESN'T MEAN YOU WILL HAVE A PLAN AT THIS TIME. THE ONLY QUESTION IS WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT TO SUPPORT A FACILITY'S AGREEMENT FOR A SEWER LINE. IF THERE WAS NO REQUEST OF US, THEN THERE WOULD, YOU WOULD NOT STILL HAVE THE STORM DRAINAGE. YOU WOULD NOT HAVE THAT ISSUE BECAUSE THEY STILL HAVE TO SOLVE FOR THAT ON THEIR SITE. THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO COME BACK AND SAY, IT'S A BIGGER DETENTION POND AND NOW WE WANT HELP FOR THAT.

THAT'S NO DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER PROJECT THAT WE WOULD DO. >> SO THEN I WILL GO BACK TO MY QUESTION. WHY DO WE NEED THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT NOW?

>> I AM GOING TO ARGUE THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY PIECEMEAL. THAT'S MY ARGUMENT.

>> MY ARGUMENT BACK, IF THIS IS A SMALLER DEVELOPMENT, 20 ACRES, 30 ACRES, IT'S OVER 200 ACRES AND WILL TAKE A REMARKABLE AMOUNT OF INFRASTRUCTURE TO COMPLETE TO.

WE HAVE INCREASED THE NUMBER OF HOMES AND THERE'S ROUGH STREET PLANS WE KNOW AREN'T GOING TO WORK BECAUSE THE TRAFFIC PATTERN SAYS WILL CHANGE AND WE HAD THAT CONVERSATION LAST WEEK.

THE OTHER BIG PROJECT THAT'S GOING ON IN TOWN RIGHT NOW, WE KNOW THEY HAD A LOT MORE OF THEIR DUCKS IN A ROW IN TERMS OF SEWER NEEDS AND TRANSPORTATION NEEDS WOULD BE.

ALL OF THAT. HERE JUST SEEMS TO BE TRICKLING ALONG.

I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING AND THEY DON'T USUALLY HAPPEN THAT.

THIS IS A BIG PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT SEEMS LIKE THERE'S A LOT OF UNKNOWNS.

I WOULD HATE TO GET DOWN THE LINE AND IT WAS A 15 INCH AND WE NEEDED AN 18 INCH AND NOW WE

HAVE TO RATIFY IT. >> WELL, THEY WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT.

>> SO WHY DO WE HAVE TO HAVE THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT NOW? WHO IS ANSWERING THAT QUESTION?

>> DEVELOPER. >> YEAH. HE'S THE ONLY ONE ANSWERING THAT. PLEASE STRAIGHT YOUR NAME. PRESTON WALHOOD, 4040 CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY, DALLAS, TEXAS. ONE POINT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IS THIS 15- INCH LINE HAS CAPACITY FOR MORE THAN OUR DEVELOPMENT. THE NEW 15 INCH LINE.

YOUR SEWER MASTER PLAN ACTUALLY SHOWS AN ADDITIONAL SEWER LINE GOING UP TO TROY AND THAT'S HOW THAT AREA WOULD BE SERVICED. IT WOULD NOT BE SERVICED BY TYING INTO OUR NEW EXISTING LINE. IT WOULD COME DOWN AND TIE IN RIGHT IN THIS, RIGHT JUST THROUGH THERE. THERE'S TROY'S INTERSECTION WITH STONEWALL.

THAT INFRASTRUCTURE WOULD NEED TO BE PUT IN TO COLLECT IN THE BASIN AND BRING THAT DOWN AND

ESSENTIALLY TYING INTO YOUR 15-INCH. >> IS THAT WHERE THE SF 40 --

>> WHERE IS THE S F 40? >> THE WHOLE AREA BETWEEN OUR DEVELOPMENT AND THE LAKE FRONT.

>> THE SF 40 IS RIGHT IN THIS AREA HERE. >> THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

IT'S -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MY -- THERE WE GO. IT FOLLOWS STONEWALL UP HERE AND THEN VINSON DOWN HERE TO SOMEWHERE ABOUT RIGHT IN THERE. IT'S NOT THE FULL LENGTH OF VINSON ROAD THAT'S IN THE CITY BECAUSE PART OF VINSON ROAD FLOWS TOWARDS DOROTHY LANE AND

ELM GROVE. >> AS AN ASIDE, HOW DOES THIS WORK IN THE AREA WE'RE NOT

CURRENTLY SERVICING. >> WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU. THE ONLY THING I WILL SAY IS, IF WE WERE TO EXTEND THAT LINE, THAT WAS THE POINT THAT JEFF WAS MAKING.

IF YOU WERE TO EXTEND THIS LINE TO THE NORTHWEST IT LOOKS LIKE, TO CONNECT IT TO VINSON AND THAT

AREA -- >> I'M TALKING ABOUT THE CURRENTLY DEVELOPED AREA.

>> WE WOULD NOT SERVE THAT. YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE UNINCORPORATED AREA?

OR THE VINSON ROAD AREA? >> I'M TALKING ABOUT THE DEVELOPED AREA.

PARDON ME? >> PARCEL ONE? >> I DON'T KNOW WHERE WE'RE AT

ON THE MAP IN REGARDS TO THE CURRENTLY DEVELOPED AREA. >> CAN YOU DO THE PULL BACK

[01:00:07]

WHERE IT'S MORE SPACE. THIS IS VINSON ROAD RIGHT HERE. THIS LITTLE STRIP, YOU CAN SEE THE RED LINE. THAT'S ALL WITHIN THE CITY. ONLY ABOUT HALF OF THAT WOULD FLOW OVER TO STONEWALL AND STONEWALL WOULD FLOW DOWN TO THIS POINT HERE.

ON VINSON ROAD? IT FLOWS TOWARDS DOROTHY AND ELM GROVE.

>> THE LITTLE RED BLOCK THERE. SO IF YOU WERE TO EXTEND THAT LINE HERE, WHAT WE'RE SAYING THE

15 INCH IS BIG ENOUGH. >> THAT'S WHAT I WAS ASKING. >> SO WHY

>> WHY >> WHY NOW? .

? >> WE'RE PREPARED TO GO FORWARD WITH THIS DEVELOPMENT.

THIS IS A CRITICAL PART OF THE CITY'S PORTION WHICH IS THE OFF-SITE PORTION.

ESSENTIALLY THIS IS 2.1 OR $2.2 MILLION PROJECT THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE THE CITY'S PROJECT.

AND WE'RE CONTRIBUTING ESSENTIALLY HALF THAT AMOUNT AND ASKING THAT THE REVENUE GENERATED FROM THE BUILDING PERMIT IMPACT FEES BE UTILIZED BY THE CITY AND DESIGNATED TO BE USED IN THAT PARTICULAR AREA. SO THAT THERE'S NO BURDEN ON THE CITY IN COMING UP WITH ADDITIONAL FUNDS THROUGH A BOND ISSUE OR GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS OR OUT OF YOUR GENERAL FUN FUNDS. THIS IS A SELF-FUNDING MECHANISM FOR DEVELOPMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE TO THIS PARTICULAR AREA. THAT WILL SERVE NOT ONLY OUR DEVELOPMENT BUT THE EXISTING DEVELOPMENT THAT IS WITHIN YOUR CITY LIMITS.

>> AND JEFF MENTIONED THAT WE STILL HAVE TO FINALIZE YOU KNOW DEVELOPMENT PLANS FOR

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> YES. AND WHEN WILL THAT BE DONE?

>> IT WILL BE COMING UP NEXT. THAT'S THE NEXT PROCESS. >> IS THAT THE FIRST THING YOU

WILL DO WITH THE DEVELOPMENT? >> THE ENGINEERING FOR THE WASTEWATER.

>> WE WILL LOOK AT PHASING PLANS AND HOW THIS WILL COME ONLINE. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THIS

IS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO HAVE ONE HOME UP THERE. >> I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT WHY IS THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT NECESSARY BEFORE WE'VE REFINED THE ENGINEERING DECISIONS A LITTLE MORE ON THE WASTEWATER. THAT'S THE ONLY QUESTION.

>> ON THE WASTEWATER? >> WELL, THE DECISION IS, I MEAN THIS PARTICULAR DESIGN TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE SEWAGE COMING FROM OUR DEVELOPMENT AND THEN POTENTIALLY FROM SERVICING THE

OTHER AREA THAT'S IN YOUR CITY LIMITS THERE. >> I UNDERSTAND.

AT SF 40. ARE YOU SAYING WHY DOES IT NEED TO BE DONE?

>> THE TIMING. IT'S JUST ABOUT TIMING. >> I THINK MENNOL WILL HIT THAT.

>> GOOD EVENING. COUNCIL MEMBERS. ONE OF THE THINGS THE APPLICANT HAS MADE MENTION OF WHEN WE STARTED OR INITIATED THIS PROJECT.

IF THE AMENDMENTS WERE APPROVED, THEY WERE IN A POSITION TO BETTER DESIGN THEIR SITE.

HOWEVER THE OTHER CRUCIAL PART OF THE PUZZLE WAS IF THEY SECURED A FACILITIES AGREEMENT, THEN THEY HAD THE SURETY SO TO SPEAK TO THEN GO AHEAD AND PROCEED WITH ENGINEERING THEIR SITE. ENGINEERING OF THEIR SITE SUPPOSE THAT THIS FACILITIES AGREEMENT IS APPROVED, THEN THEY'RE IN A POSITION NOW TO SUBMIT THEIR PRELIMINARY PLAN AND PHASE OUT THEIR DESIGN PROGRAM AND FROM THEN START THE TRUE CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGN MECHANISMS AS IT RELATES TO OUR DESIGN CRITERIA MANUALS FOR STORMWATER MANAGEMENT, DRAINAGE, OTHER UTILITY EASEMENTS AND COMP COMPONENTS.

IN ORDER TO PROCEED TO THE NEXT PHASE, THEY WANT TO SECURE THIS FACILITIES AGREEMENT SO THEY COULD PROGRAM AND PROJECT PLAN THEIR PROJECT THROUGH THE PHASES THEY NEED.

IF THEY DO NOT, BASED ON THE INFORMATION THE APPLICANT PROVIDED.

THIS IS THE MOST CRUCIAL ELEMENT OF THEM TO BE ABLE TO COMPREHENSIVELY CIVIL ENGINEER THEIR SITE BECAUSE THEN IF THEY HAVE THIS, THEY KNOW HOW THEY'RE GOING TO PROGRAM THEIR PHASES

INTO THIS 15-INCH. COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH. >> SO THAT ALL MAKES SENSE.

EXPLAIN TO ME AGAIN. WE WERE ALL TALKING. FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD.

THE PAN HANDLE. EVERYTHING ELSE UP THERE IS UNINCORPORATED.

[01:05:04]

ONLY HALF OF THAT PANHANDLE WOULD BE SERVICED BY A POTENTIALLY THIS LINE? SO IF YOU COME -- SOUTH OF THE DEVELOPMENT, THE LITTLE PANHANDLE THAT CONNECTS THAT TO

THE BODY OF CITY. >> THIS PIECE. >> NO THE WHOLE PIECE.

FROM VINSON ROAD ALL THE WAY TO STONEWALL ROAD. FROM VINSON TO STONEWALL.

THAT WHOLE RECTANGLE. YOU WERE SAYING HOW MUCH OF THAT BECAUSE YOU WERE SAYING ONLY

HALF. >> ROUGHLY. IF THAT WAS DEVELOPED AS SF 7, LET'S SAY, YOU KNOW AT A DENSER POPULATION, HOW CONFIDENT ARE WE THAT THAT 15-INCH LINE, WHEN YOU DID YOUR SPECS IN TERMS OVERENGINEERING, HOW MUCH MORE DID YOU DO FOR THE 15-INCH LINE WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET IN A BOTTLE NECK AND IS IT THAT WHOLE SITE OR ONLY HALF.

EXPLAIN THAT TO US. >> JEFF WANTS IT. >> SO, I ONLY LOOKED, I COULD ONLY LOOK AT WHAT THE CURRENT ZONING WAS. AND THAT IS SF 40.

BUT I AM 100% SURE THAT IF IT GETS DENSER, WE WOULD NEED A BIGGER LINE.

AND IT IS ABOUT HALF OF THAT LITTLE RECTANGLE. THAT'S JUST THE WAY THE LAND

LIES. >> SO, YOU NEED A BIGGER LINE FROM WHERE TO WHERE?

>> WELL REALLY ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE NORTH, EXCUSE ME, THE NORTH SIDE LIFT STATION NUMBER

TWO. >> CAN YOU DRAW IT? FROM HERE, WELL ACTUALLY I'M

SORRY, FROM STONEWALL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THIS LIFT STATION. >> OKAY.

>> SO, IT WOULD BE A NEW DEVELOPMENT COST. MOST OF THAT IS EXISTING LINE.

>> YEAH. MOST OF IT. >> IF IT WAS UPGRADED.

TO SOMETHING OTHER THAN SF 40, MORE DENSE, YOU MAY HAVE TO EXPAND THAT AND THEN INCREASE A SIZE OF THE LINE IS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING. SF 40 BECAUSE THAT SF 40 HALF THAT PROPERTY OR HALF OF THAT SECTION THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WOULD BE ABLE TO USE THIS LINE IF WE EXTENDED THAT LINE TO THEM AT SF 40. AND 15 INCHES, IT'S SUFFICIENT

TO DO THAT. >> THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING. IF THEY WANTED AND ASKED TO

INCREASE THAT TO SOMETHING ELSE, THEN IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK. >> IF WE WERE -- IF WE HAD SOME REASON TO BELIEVE THAT IT WAS GOING TO DEVELOP DENSER, THEN WE WOULD NEED SOMETHING BIGGER THAN

15 INCHES. >> MY POINT IN ALL OF THIS, I DON'T WANT TO PUT IN A NEW 15 INCH LINE IF IT HAS TO BE TORN APART. THE MAJORITY OF THE LINE THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE INCREASED IN SIZE IS EXISTING LINE THAT ALREADY EXISTS TODAY.

THAT'S WHY I WANTED THAT ALL DROWN OUT. DOESN'T MEAN, IT'S A LITTLE SHORT SIDED BUT IT DOES CHANGE MY VIEW A LITTLE BIT. COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH.

>> IT'S ABOUT HALF. THE DOTTED LINE FROM STONEWALL DOWN AND TO ME, THAT'S NOT A BIG ENOUGH SITE THAT'S PROBABLY HALF OF THAT IS MAYBE 50, 60 ACRES, I DON'T KNOW.

THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH, I DON'T SEE ENOUGH IMPACT, SEWER IMPACT FEES IF THEY HAD TO REPLACE THAT ENTIRE LINE, TO MAKE THAT A DEVELOPABLE SITE. SO NOW, IF WE'RE SHORT SIDING THAT, NOW WE HAVE JUST NOT BEEN ABLE TO DEVELOP MORE OF ROWLETT TO THEN COULD BRING MORE -- SO -- NOT AT SF 40. BUT NOT EVEN AT A HIGHER DENSITY.

THERE'S NOT ENOUGH PAD SITES THERE TO BE ABLE TO OFFSET THE UPGRADING OF THAT SEWER SITE IN THE FUTURE SO IT'S GOING TO TAKE A DEVELOPER THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE ABLE TO FRONT ALL OF THE COST OR WE WOULD HAVE TO FRONT THE COST. IF WE COULD WORK THAT IN FROM STONEWALL DOWN TO 18, THEY ONLY WOULD HAVE TO UPGRADE FROM THE EXISTING LINE DOWN AND NOW MAYBE THAT MAKES THAT PARCEL MORE APPEALING AND ECONOMICALLY WORK FOR ANOTHER DEVELOPER TO BE ABLE

TO COME IN SOONER THAN LATER. THAT'S JUST MY POINT. >> ALL BRIAN SAID WAS EXCEPT

40. >> IT'S OKAY. I DON'T KNOW.

THIS IS A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD. >> LET ME SHED A LITTLE LIGHT ON IT.

[01:10:04]

IN THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT, IT REQUIRES US TO DO AN ENGINEERING STUDY.

IF THE PORTION FROM STONEWALL DOWN TO THE EXISTING TIE IN AT THAT 15-INCH, IF THAT FLOW IS CALCULATED COMING FROM THAT WAY AND THAT'S SOMETHING YOU WANT UPGRADED, WE CAN UPGRADE SOUTHEAST OF STONEWALL. I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE SAYING. THAT THEN WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS SETTING UP LONG-TERM CHANGING THE FLOW OF THE LINE SOUTH OF THERE.

YOU'RE EXISTING LINE LIKE YOU MENTIONED. >> THE WHOLE QUESTION HAS BEEN

-- >> A MUCH LARGER PROJECT. >> THE WHOLE QUESTION IS CAN WE DO THE ENGINEERING STUDY BEFORE WE SIGN THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT?

THAT'S BEEN THE WHOLE QUESTION ALL ALONG. >> FACILITIES AGREEMENT PROVIDES FOR THE REQUIREMENT TO DO THE ENGINEERING STUDY, AND THAT'S WHY WE NEED TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE SOME TYPE OF AN AGREEMENT ON HOW THIS THING IS GOING TO GET PAID FOR.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE WORKING TOWARDS. SO WE CAN TAKE THE NEXT STEP AND INITIATE THE NUMEROUS ENGINEERING WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE ON IT.

>> THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT IS REALLY THE FIRST STEP IN THE PROCESS.

IT'S OBLIGATING US AS THE DEVELOPER TO DO THE ENGINEERING STUDY BEFORE WE START ANY TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT AND IT'S NOT OBLIGATING THE CITY TO OUT LAY ANY CAPITAL UNTIL EVERYTHING IS DONE AND THE FIRST BUILDING PERMIT IS PULLED. THIS IS THE FIRST BUILDING BLOCK OF GETTING THE SEWER INSTALLED. ALSO THIS IS SEVERAL YEARS OUT. WE'RE NOT GOING TO START TURNING DIRT TOMORROW AND PUT IN A 15-INCH LINE. IN THE PROCESS IN THIS LAND THAT'S TO THE SOUTH SELLS AND SOMEONE COMES IN WITH A DENSER PRODUCT AND WANTS TO UPGRADE IT, WE ARE OPEN TO THAT. WE BUILD SEWERS AND ROADWAYS. THIS IS OFF-SITE.

THIS IS AN AREA BEYOND WHAT WE HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO DO AND INSTALL.

WE'RE TRYING TO WORK TOGETHER TO DO IT. >> ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH THAT.

COUNCIL MEMBER LANING WANTS TO STAY SOMETHING THAT'S A NEW SUBJECT.

MY MESSAGE TO THE CITY WOULD BE, LET'S NOT BE SHORT SIDED IN THIS DECISION.

THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT IS REALLY ABOUT YOU KNOW OFFSITE INFRASTRUCTURE AND ASKING YOU ALL TO REPLACE EXISTING 15-INCH LINE WHEN YOU DON'T NEED MORE THAN 15-INCH LINE.

LET'S NOT BE SHORT SIDED AS A CITY WHEN WE LOOK AT THIS ENGINEERING AND MAYBE MAKING A DIFFERENT DECISION WHILE WE HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY. BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT IT IMPACTS THE FACILITIES ASSESSMENT. CORRECT. I THINK THE CODE ORDINANCE ALLOWS THE CITY TO UPSIZE. THERE'S A STRUCTURE FOR THAT TO BE DONE IF THE CITY IS REQUESTING FOR SOMETHING TO BE UPSIZED ADDITIONALLY. THIS IS JUST THE FIRST COMMITMENT OF IDENTIFYING THE OFF SITE AND THE COMMITMENT WE'RE GOING TO DO OUR PART AND

THE CITY IS GOING TO CREATE A MECHANISM. >> WE SHOULD NOT MAKE DECISIONS

ON SF 40, JEFF. >> COUNCIL MEMBER LANING. >> IN ADDITION TO THE SF 40.

THERE'S A PROPOSED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ON THE NORTHWEST SIDE OF THAT, WITH GARLAND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT. HAS THAT BEEN TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WITH THE 15-INCH LINE?

>> IS MY UNDERSTANDING IT HAS. THE REPORT THAT WAS DONE, IF YOU RECALL THIS PROPERTY THERE WAS A PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT FOR THIS PROPERTY IN 2013. AT THAT TIME, THERE WAS A STUDY DONE TO SEE WHAT IMPROVEMENTS WERE NECESSARY TO UPGRADE AND UPSIZE THE INFRASTRUCTURE AND ACCORDING TO THAT REPORT, THE SCHOOL WAS INCLUDED IN THAT DRAINAGE BASIN.

>> THANK YOU. THANKS, WHITNEY. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, COUNCIL?

MENNOL, DO YOU HAVE AN >> DO YOU HAVE WHAT THE QUESTION WAS?

>> YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BEAR WITH ME AS I TRY TO SEE WHAT IT SHOWS ON MY PHONE.

>> THE QUESTION WAS WHAT ARE THE -- >> ROADWAY IMPACT FEES.

>> ROADWAY IMPACT FEES. SECTION ONE. AREA ONE?

>> OKAY. FOR A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE IT'S $3,490 PER UNIT.

SO, I'M GOING TO DO THE NEXT. >> TIMES -- >> 765.

>> I THOUGHT YOU WORKED IT OUT. >> 3490. >> OH, MY GOSH.

APPROXIMATELY 2.7 MILLION. $2,699,850. >> THAT'S WHAT WE WILL COLLECT

[01:15:03]

IN ROADWAY IMPACT FEES TO HELP WITH ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE IN OUR DECISIONMAKING.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS COUNCIL? >> I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION. >> YES, YOU DO.

I WILL TAKE A MOTION. >> COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH. >> I MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE

THE ITEM. >> THE RESOLUTION TO FOR THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT.

SORRY. >> SO WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT. DO I HAVE A SECOND FROM COUNCIL MEMBER BROWN.

MOTION AND SECOND. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION, COUNCIL MEMBER GRUBISICH.

>> SORRY, I'M TALKATIVE TONIGHT. I AGREE THAT EVERYTHING WE TALKED ABOUT DOESN'T AFFECT THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT AND THAT YOU NEED TO FACILITIES AGREEMENT TO BE ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD.

AGAIN I REITERATE OTHER MAJOR PROJECTS THAT HAVE THIS LEVEL OF IMPACT HAD AT LEAST SOME OF THAT OTHER ENGINEERING AND STUFF THAT'S COME IN THERE SO THAT SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS COULD BE BETTER ANSWERED SO WE'RE NOT DEBATING THEM HERE. I HOPE THAT WE DO HAVE SOME OF THAT FORESIGHT, THAT'S OUR JOB TO LOOK TOWARDS THE FUTURE OF THE CITY AND MAKE SURE WE'RE NOT PASSING ON FUTURE ISSUES TO FUTURE COUNCILS AND CITY STAFF. SO I THINK IT BEHOOVES US AND I'M LOOKING AT CITY STAFF WHEN WE DO THIS, TO LOOK AT ALL OF THAT AS WE MOVE THROUGH.

I UNDERSTAND IT'S NOT ALL ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPER, I THINK WITH THIS DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SIZE WITHIN THE CITY, WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE OUR DUCKS IN A ROW BEFORE WE BRING THIS STUFF

FORWARD. THANK YOU. >> ANY OTHER COMMENTS COUNCIL? CALL THE VOTE. THIS IS TO APPROVE THE FACILITIES AGREEMENT.

DRUM ROLL. IT'S NOT ON MY SCREEN. YEAH IT IS.

IT IS UNANIMOUS. WE ARE ADJOURNED.
