2A >> I AM GOING TO GO AHEAD AND READ INTO THE RECORD ITEM 3A,

[3A. Presentation of the Land Use Assumptions, Capital Improvements Plans, and Impact Fees in the 2019 Impact Fee Update Study. (45 minutes)]

PRESENTATION OF LAND-USE ASSUMPTIONS, CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PLANS AND IMPACT FEES IN THE 2019 IMPACT FEE STUDY. WELCOME GENTLEMEN.

TALK SLOWLY. WE ALREADY.

>> YOU DID A GOOD JOB. >> MAYOR, COUNCIL, GOOD EVENING.

WE WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLAIN WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE PAST 8-9 MONTHS SINCE MARCH OR APRIL OF LAST YEAR. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON AN UPDATE TO THE IMPACT FEE STUDY. THE REPORT NOW IS COMPLETE. OUR CONSULTANT IS HERE TO EXPLAIN THE REPORT TO YOU AND WHAT WE HAVE FOUND IN THE WAY OF IMPACT FEES.

I WOULD LIKE TO TURN IT OVER TO THEM. JOHN ATKINS IS HERE.

HE WILL DO MOST OF THE PRESENTATION. HE IS THE WATER AND WASTEWATER EXPERT. PETE KELLY IS HERE AND HE'S THE TRANSPORTATION SIDE OF THE

STUDY. I'LL TURN IT OVER TO JOHN. >> BEFORE I GET STARTED, JUST A LITTLE BRIEF HISTORY. WITH IMPACT FEES, BECAUSE THE STATE DOESN'T REQUIRE YOU TO UPDATE THAT EVERY FIVE YEARS A LOT OF TIMES COUNCIL IS TURNED OVER.

FOR EXAMPLE, HERE IN ROWLETT I WAS PART OF THE FIRST IMPACT FEE STUDY DONE IN 2003 AND DECIDED TO IMPLEMENT THEM. THEN JANUARY 2004. YEAH HAVE HAD IMPACT FEES 16 YEARS NOW. WHAT HAPPENS IS COUNCIL TURNS OVER TO SOME LEVEL SOMETIMES AND ABOUT EVERY FIVE YEARS YOU UPDATE AGAIN AND THEN WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH A LITTLE BIT OF A BACKGROUND EDUCATION PROCESS BECAUSE IT DOESN'T COME AROUND VERY OFTEN.

STAFF IS ADMINISTERING IT ON A REGULAR BASIS YEAR AFTER YEAR. THE COUNCIL AND CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT ADVISEMENT COMMITTEE DON'T SEE IT THAT OFTEN.

THAT'S WITH THE FIRST PART OF THE PRESENTATION WILL BE ABOUT, REHASHING A LITTLE BIT OF THE METHODOLOGY AND THAT SORT OF STUFF. I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THIS ISN'T NEW TO ROWLETT. YOU'VE BEEN DOING ABOUT 16 YEARS.

THE STATE REQUIRES WE UPDATE EVERY FIVE YEARS AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE.

THE KEY COMPONENT Y'ALL WILL NEED TO FOCUS ON IS YOU CAN FORGET EVERYTHING I TALK ABOUT IN THE FIRST 20 MINUTES. THE MAIN PART WILL BE THE LAST SLIDE WHERE WE ARE ACTUALLY COMPARING THE RETURN IMPACT FEES TODAY, YELLS COLLECTION RATE, ALONG WITH SOME OF YOUR NEIGHBORING CITIES AND WHAT THEY'RE DOING TODAY, AND THEN THE DECISION WILL BE -- YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE IT TONIGHT, BUT IT WILL BE DECIDING WHAT THE NEW COLLECTION RATE WILL BE

[00:05:04]

MOVING FORWARD IN 2020. THAT IS JUST TO GIVE YOU THE BIG PICTURE.

ALL RIGHT. WE WILL GET STARTED WITH SOME OF THE DETAILS.

THIS IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO COVER IN THE PRESENTATION. WHAT'S AN IMPACT FEE, WHY WE ARE GOOD UPDATE, WHAT ARE THE COMPONENTS OF THE STUDY WE HAVE DONE, SOME OF THE METHODOLOGY BEHIND THE STUDY, THE MAXIMUM FEE THAT COMES OUT OF THE STUDY, AND THEN THE IMPORTANT PART IS THE PROPOSED COLLECTION RATES YOU MAY WANT TO SET GOING INTO THE FUTURE.

WE WILL GET FINAL NEXT STEPS. SOME DEFINITIONS HERE. WHAT IS AN IMPACT FEE? IT'S A MECHANISM TO RECOVER COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDED TO SERVE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT A FEE FOR ANY CURRENT CITIZENS.

THIS IS ABOUT FUTURE DEVELOPMENT COMING INTO TOWN PUTTING A DEMAND ON YOUR SYSTEM AND THEN PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE OF THAT. THAT IS THE CONCEPT.

IT'S GOVERNED BY CHAPTER 395, LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE. WHAT IT IS BASICALLY DOING IS DETERMINING A PROPORTIONAL SHARE OF INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT.

WHAT HAPPENED BACK IN 1987, THE HOMEBUILDERS ASSOCIATION WENT BACK TO THE STATE LEGISLATURE AND SAID WE WANT TO BE TREATED MORE EQUITABLY AND FAIRLY WHEN WE COME TO A CITY.

ALL DEVELOPMENTS BASICALLY TREATED THE SAME. IF YOU WANT TO CHARGES FOR INFRASTRUCTURE CONTINUED TO IT PROPORTIONAL TO OUR EFFECT ON THE SYSTEM.

THAT'S WHEN THE STATE LEGISLATURE SAID THAT SOUNDS FAIR.

IT GIVES THE CITY AN ADDITIONAL FUNDING TOOL SO WHEN YOU'RE BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURE NOT ALL OF THAT BURDEN HAS TO FALL ON YOUR CURRENT CITIZENS THROUGH BONDS AND CERTAIN THINGS OF THAT NATURE. THE DEVELOPMENT COMING INTO TOWN CAN PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE.

THERE NEEDS TO BE AN ANALYSIS THAT GIVES THE PROPORTIONATE SHARE AND WE WILL GET INTO

THOSE DETAILS IN A MINUTE. IT'S JUST A ONE-TIME FEE. >> THOSE ARE THE ONLY THREE

AREAS THAT COVERS, WATER WASTE, WATER, RAIL WASTE? >> DRAINAGE IS AN OPTION, TOO.

VERY FEW CITIES DO DRAINAGE. >> YOU HAVE A DRAINAGE BE. >> YEAH.T IS HARDER TO ADMINISTER. YOU DON'T WANT TO GET INTO THE DETAILS.

WE CAN ALWAYS SIDEBAR. WE WILL BE HAPPY TO DO THAT IF YOU WANT.

I DON'T KNOW THE EVERYBODY WANTS TO HEAR THAT. THERE'S RULES ON WHAT COSTS ARE RECOVERABLE. BASICALLY, EVERYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH DELIVERING A PROJECT, FROM PLANNING AND ENGINEERING THROUGH LAND ACQUISITION AND CAPITAL PROJECTS THEMSELVES, FINANCING, THE WORK WE ARE DOING FOR Y'ALL TODAY.

THESE ARE ALL ABOUT COST YOU CAN ROLL INTO YOUR IMPACT FEE THAT ARE RECOVERABLE.

AND NOW THE ONE THING THAT CHANGED IN THE LEGISLATION A FEW YEARS AGO IS YOUR LOCAL SHARED STATE AND FEDERAL HIGHWAY PROJECTS CAN BE RECOVERED, TOO.

INITIALLY, Y'ALL COULDN'T DO THAT. IF YOU HAD A LOT OF STATE HIGHWAYS RUNNING THROUGH YOUR CITY AND YOU WANT TO PUT SOME MONEY INTO THAT AND THEY DIDN'T LET YOU RECOVER THAT. LEGISLATURE CHANGES THAT TO RECOVER SOME OF THAT COST.

WHAT'S NOT RECOVERABLE? PROJECTS THAT AREN'T ON THE IMPACT FEE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN. YOU CAN'T RECOVER COSTS ON THOSE.

OPERATIONAL MAINTENANCE.F YOU'RE TRYING TO REMEDY A DEFICIENCY IN THE SYSTEM, THERE'S A LEVEL OF SERVICE SOMEWHERE THAT YOU'RE TRYING TO SHORE UP AS FAR AS THE ROADWAY TO IMPROVE CAPACITY. IT'S BASED ON CURRENT DEFICIENCIES.

CAN'T RECOVER THAT COST. ADMINISTRATION AND OPERATION OF THE PROGRAM ITSELF.

AND THEN NON- CIP. WHY UPDATE? FIRST OF ALL, THE STATE REQUIRES YOU TO UPDATE EVERY FIVE YEARS. THAT IS THE MAIN REASON EVERYBODY UPDATES. SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE CHANGES IN THE ASSUMPTIONS SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO REVISIT IT AGAIN. CHANGES IN YOUR CAPITAL PLAN. THAT HAS HAPPENED EVERY PLAN WE HAVE UPDATED SO FAR. SOME KIND OF CHANGE IN YOUR CAPITAL PLAN.

IF YOU IMPROVE THE PROGRAM OR CHANGE SOMETHING, YOU CAN UPDATE ANYTIME YOU WANT.HE LAW SAYS EVERY FIVE YEARS YOU CAN UPDATE. YOU CAN UPDATE EVERY YEAR IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO. ADMINISTRATIVELY IT'S A LITTLE ROUGH ON STAFF TO DO THAT.

WHAT ARE THE COMPONENTS THAT GO INTO THIS STUDY? THE FIRST THING IS WE DEFINE THE SERVICE AREA. I'LL EXPLAIN SOME EXAMPLES AND SHOW YOU THAT IN A MINUTE.

THERE IS A SERVICE UNIT, THE UNIT OF GROWTH. THAT VARIES FROM ROADWAY TO

[00:10:06]

WATER AND WASTEWATER. THE LAND-USE ASSUMPTIONS. WE HAVE TO BASE THE INFORMATION ON YOUR CURRENT LAND USE ASSUMPTIONS WHICH IS UPDATED IN THE 2019 COMP PLAN.

THAT THEN DRIVES A CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PLAN BASED ON GROWTH.

THE SERVICE AREA IS AN AREA WE SERVED BY IMPACT FEE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PLAN.

WE DRAW A MAP THAT SHOWS THAT. THE WATER AND WASTEWATER SERVICE AREA IS YOUR CITY LIMITS PLUS A SMALL AMOUNT IN YOUR NORTHEAST PORTION OF THE CITY BY THE LAKE.

ROADWAY SERVICE AREAS ARE LIMITED TO 6 MILES. THAT IS THE FARTHEST STATE LEGISLATURE REQUIRES. ROWLETT SERVICE AREAS ARE ABOUT A FIVE MILE LIMIT SPLIT BETWEEN LAKEVIEW PARKWAY. SERVICE AREA ONE NORTH OF LAKEVIEW PARKWAY AND EVERYTHING

SOUTH OF LAKEVIEW PARKWAY'S SERVICE AREA TWO. >> SO THAT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE ONE SERVICE AREA FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER IMPACT FEES AND TWO

FOR ROAD IMPACT. >> THE KEY COMPONENT OF THAT IS MONEY COLLECTED IN EACH SERVICE AREA MUST BE SPENT IN THAT SERVICE AREA. WATER AND WASTEWATER, IT'S YOUR WHOLE CITY. YOU COLLECT MONEY ANYWHERE AND YOU CAN SPEND IT ON ANY PROJECT WITHIN THE CITY.OADWAYS ARE LIMITED NORTH OF LAKEVIEW AND SOUTH OF LAKEVIEW.

WE WILL SHOW A MAP IN A SECOND. HERE IT IS. THERE IS WHAT THE MAP LOOKS LIKE.> THAT'S JUST A DECISION WE MADE HISTORICALLY. WE CAN CHANGE THAT DECISION

WITH THIS PLAN IF WE WANTED TO? >> YEAH. BACK WHEN THE LAW SAID YOU CAN ONLY HAVE A THREE MILE AREA, Y'ALL HAD FOUR AREAS. IT WAS SPLIT BASICALLY WHERE THE CITY, KIND OF THE JET OF THE LAKE THAT RUNS TO THE MIDDLE OF TOWN, WE JUST SPLIT THAT DUE NORTH AND YOU HAVE THE EAST AND WEST. BASICALLY, TWO YOU SEE ON THE BOTTOM ARE THREE AND FOUR AND THE TWO AT THE TOP ONE IS SPLIT AND THEN ONE ENDED TWO.

NOW IT IS BIGGER. IT MAKES IT EASIER BECAUSE MORE AREAS THE MORE ADMINISTRATION

AND RESTRICTED YOU ARE. >> STAFF, DO WE SEE ANY ISSUES WITH SPLITTING IT LIKE THIS AS

OPPOSED TO EAST-WEST? >> WE WERE ABLE TO TRACK IT BY PROJECT.

>> THE OTHER THING IT DOES BY DOING THIS IS YOU ARE MORE DEVELOPED IN THE SOUTHERN HALF

BELOW LAKEVIEW PARKWAY. >> WE ARE NOT WITH SAPPHIRE BAY.

>> THAT IS KIND OF AN EXCEPTION. >> REALLY THE EAST-WEST DOESN'T SOLVE THAT EITHER. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE NOT HAVING AN ISSUE OF NORTH-SOUTH SPLIT VERSUS EAST-SOUTH SPLIT.> IT WILL BE SIMPLER IF WE DIDN'T HAVE TO

SPLIT THEM UP. >> I AGREE WITH THAT, BUT YOU HAVE TO REGARDLESS EITHER WAY.

>> WE ARE ABLE TO TRACK EACH INDIVIDUAL PROJECT WHERE THE MONEY COMES FROM AND THEN WHERE

THE MONEY HAS TO BE SPENT. >> I UNDERSTAND THE TRACKING. 'M SAYING HOW TO ALLOCATE THE ACTUAL DOLLARS COLLECTED TO PROJECTS. IS THERE A BETTER WAY TO SPLIT IT? WE OFTEN RUN INTO AN ISSUE WHERE WE HAVE THE IMPACT FEES, BUT WE CAN'T USE THEM FOR THIS BECAUSE IT IS THE NORTH-SOUTH SPLIT.

>> LET ME SAY THIS. THE REASON I LIKE THE NORTH-SOUTH IS OUR FUTURE FRONTIER IN THE NORTH SHORE. SAPPHIRE BAY IS GOING GANGBUSTERS ON THE SOUTH.

THAT IS ONE-WAY OR SPLITTING UP SOME OF THE COST. IF IT WAS EAST AND WEST -- I GUESS IT WOULDN'T MATTER.

QUESTION. >> WOULD IT CHANGE THE EVALUATIONS?

>> THE EVALUATION ITSELF IT WOULDN'T. >> IT WOULD CHANGE THE DOLLAR

AMOUNT? >> IT WOULD CAUSE COMPLICATIONS BECAUSE WE ARE NORTH-SOUTH.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE. OKAY. >> ROADWAY AND WATER WASTEWATER REAL SIMPLE. YOU CAN SEE HOW THE CITY LIMITS DID THE JOB WITH THE NORTHWEST CORNER. WE JUST EXTEND THAT A LITTLE BIT.

VERY LITTLE GROWTH THERE, BUT IT IS PART OF THE ETJ. IT HAS VERY LITTLE EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM. IF SOMEONE DOES COME INTO THAT PARTICULAR AREA, Y'ALL CAN CHARGE THEM AND THEY WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE INFRASTRUCTURE.

SERVICE UNITS. LET'S DEFINE WHAT THAT IS. 395 HAS A DEFINITION FOR SERVICE UNIT CALLED THE STANDARDIZED MEASURE OF CONSUMPTION ATTRIBUTABLE TO AN INDIVIDUAL UNIT OF DEVELOPMENT. BASICALLY, THE PROPORTIONAL SHARE DEVELOPMENT BRINGS THE

[00:15:06]

NEED ON THE SYSTEM WHEN THEY COME INTO TOWN. FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER, THEY UTILIZE THE BASE METER OF 5/8 BY THREE-QUARTER INCH METER SPECIFICALLY USED BY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE COMMUNITY. THAT'S KIND OF A BASELINE FOR YOUR WATER AND WASTEWATER. THAT IS A STANDARD OF MEASURE. ROADWAYS KIND OF A NUANCE THING. IT'S CALLED A VEHICLE MILE. BASICALLY WHAT THAT IS IS IS ONE VEHICLE TO TRAVEL ONE MILE. IT IS KIND OF UNIQUE. WE WILL TRY TO GET INTO IT A LITTLE BIT MORE WE CAN UNDERSTAND CONCEPTUALLY WHAT THAT MEANS.

TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF THAT SERVICE UNIT, ON THE ROADWAY SIDE, A SINGLE-FAMILY HOME, YOU CAN SEE THE VEHICLE MILE IS 4.85 VEHICLE MILES. A SINGLE-FAMILY'S EFFECT ON THE SYSTEM, ROADWAY SYSTEM, IS IT USES 4.85 VEHICLE MILES PER HOUSE.

COMPARE THAT TO A SHOPPING CENTER. THE VALUE IS 7.03 PER THOUSAND SQUARE FEET OF SHOPPING CENTER. THAT IS THE EFFECT THAT HAS ON THE ROADWAY SYSTEM.

THE REPORT GETS INTO A LOT OF DETAIL ON HOW THOSE CALCULATIONS ARE DONE.

IF YOU WANT TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND IT MORE, YOU CAN READ THE REPORT.

TO GIVE AN EXAMPLE, THE BASE METER I WAS TALKING ABOUT THAT SERVES A SINGLE-FAMILY HOME IS 5/8 BY THREE QUARTERS. A LOT OF TIMES THEY WILL COME IN AND REQUEST A TWO INCH METER. TO GIVE A COMPARISON OF CAPACITY OF THE TWO, A TWO INCH METER IS LIKE NEEDING 5/8 BY THREE-QUARTER INCH METERS. A SHOPPING CENTER COULD USE EIGHT TIMES AS MUCH WATER AS A HOMEOWNER. THAT GIVES YOU MAGNITUDE.

THEIR EFFECT ON THE SYSTEM IS MUCH MORE SIGNIFICANT. LAND-USE.

THIS IS ONE OF THE KEY COMPONENTS. THIS IS AN EXHIBIT OF YOUR CURRENT LAND USE PLAN THAT COMES FROM THE 2019 COMP PLAN. IT IS THE FUTURE LAND USE PLAN.

WE UTILIZE THIS. IT'S AN EXHIBIT IN THE REPORT. WE UTILIZE THAT ALONG WITH LOOKING AT YOUR HISTORICAL BUILDING PERMITS SINCE THE LAST UPDATE IN 2013.

WE LOOK AT THE TRENDS OF WHAT HAS COME INTO TOWN. BASICALLY, THE BEST RECORD IS THE AMOUNT OF BUILDING PERMITS PULLED EACH YEAR. WE LOOK AT THE GROWTH TREND SINCE 2013 AND WE PROJECT THAT OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS. WHY JUST LOOK AT 10 YEARS? STATE LAW TALKS ABOUT WE CAN'T CHARGE IMPACT FEES FOR DEVELOPMENT BEYOND YOUR NEXT 10 YEAR WINDOW. EVERY FIVE YEARS WHEN YOU COME BACK AND LOOK AT IT, WE SHIFT THE TIMEFRAME TO THE NEXT 10 YEARS AND WE ROLL THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

YOU BUILD CAPITAL PROJECTS THAT SERVE WAY BEYOND JUST 10 YEARS. YOU WANT TO CAPTURE THAT DOLLAR AMOUNT SO THEY ALLOW YOU TO KEEP ROLLING THE STUDY. YOU HAVE DONE IN THE LAST 15 YEARS. THAT IS THE LAND-USE PORTION. TO GIVE YOU A SUMMARY HERE, LOOKING AT THE NEXT 10 YEARS, IF YOU LOOK AT THE VERY BOTTOM LINE, THE TOTAL, WE LOOK AT 10 YEAR GROWTH. POPULATION OF JUST UNDER 14,000 FOLKS COMING TO TOWN OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS. THE NEXT VALUE I WOULD LIKE YOU TO LOOK AT IS THE 1.744 MILLION. THAT IS THE APPROXIMATE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT IN SQUARE FEET. IT WOULD PROJECT OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

OBVIOUSLY THAT GROWTH CREATES A BURDEN ON YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE AND WE WANT TO TRY TO RECOVER SOME COST FROM THE DEVELOPMENT THAT IS CREATING THAT BURDEN TO BE APPLIED TO THOSE PROJECTS

THAT WOULD BE NEEDED. >> THAT INCLUDES AREA TWO? >> YES.

>> TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION, THIS IS SERVICE AREA ONE ON THE ROADWAY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO UNDERSTAND ANY MORE THAN THE COLORED OBJECTS YOU SEE ON THE GRAPH ARE CAPITAL PROJECTS PROPOSED THE NEXT 10 YEARS. THEY ACTUALLY GO BEYOND 10 YEARS. THOSE OF THE PROJECTS IDENTIFIED IN THE REPORT THAT YOU, COVER AND ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY IMPACT FEES TO.SERVICE AREA TWO, THESE ARE THE PROJECTS IDENTIFIED.ETAIL ABOUT THESE PROJECTS SPECIFICALLY, COST, REASONING,

[00:20:03]

THINGS OF THAT NATURE, OR ALL IN THE REPORT. WATER.

THERE'S THE PROJECTS. THE BIG PROJECT IS PROJECT SEVEN.

IT WASN'T IN THE LAST STUDY. IT IS IN THIS STUDY. >> IT'S THE TOP BUTTON.

>> DOES IT GIVE ME A POINTER? >> SO A LONG TIME AGO WHEN I WAS FIRST ON COUNCIL, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE SEWER LINE THAT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AT SOME POINT.

THAT IS NOT ON HERE. >> LET'S GO TO THE SEWER. >> THAT.

I'M SORRY. THERE IT IS. THANK YOU.

>> ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT PROJECT -- >> I THOUGHT IT WAS CLOSER TO

66. >> YOU ARE PROBABLY TALKING ABOUT THE LINE PROPOSED RIGHT THERE. MY GUESTS IS IT IS SHORING UP CURRENT DEFICIENCIES AND

DEMANDS ON THE SYSTEM WHERE IT'S NOT ELIGIBLE FOR RECOVERY. >> OKAY.

>> ZUSI PROJECT NINE IS A SIMILAR TYPE SITUATION. WE WILL PROBABLY NEED TO GO IN TO SAPPHIRE BAY SOMEWHAT. IMPACT FEE METHODOLOGY. WHAT WE DO IS TAKE ALL THE INFORMATION I JUST TALKED ABOUT IN THE LAST THREE OR FOUR SLIDES IN REGARDS TO LAND-USE AND POPULATION PROJECTION. THE MASTER PLAN CREATES THE INFRASTRUCTURE, THE 10 YEAR IMPACT FEE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN. WE REMOVED COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXISTING DEVELOPMENT. YOU CAN'T RECOVER COSTS FOR EXISTING AND BEYOND THE 10 YEAR WINDOW. YOU HAVE TO CUT THAT OUT, TOO. WE DO A CALCULATION WHERE WE CALCULATE A PRE-CREDIT MAXIMUM ASSESSABLE FEE. THE FORMULA THAT YOU SEE HIGHLIGHTED IN LIGHT GRAY IS IMPACT FEE PER SERVICE UNIT EQUAL TO THE IMPACT FEE THE RECOVERABLE COST DIVIDED BY THE ADDITIONAL GROWTH OF THE ADDITIONAL SERVICE UNITS THAT WILL COME INTO TOWN THE NEXT 10 YEARS. THE BOTTOM LINE IS COST DIVIDED BY GROWTH. IF YOU HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF GROWTH AND COST STAYS THE SAME, IMPACT FEE WILL GO DOWN. IF YOU HAVE VERY LITTLE GROWTH AND THE COST IS WHAT IT IS, THE IMPACT FEE WILL GO UP. THE MORE FOLKS YOU HAVE COMING INTO TOWN, THE MORE THE DOLLAR AMOUNT WILL DROP BECAUSE YOU ARE DISTRIBUTING THE COST ACROSS MORE PEOPLE.

THE NEED FOR THE CAPITAL PROJECT IS SOMEWHAT PROPORTIONAL TO THAT, SO THE VALUES ALWAYS STAY FAIRLY REASONABLE. ONE THING THAT WOULD BE MORE CONSERVATIVE IS STATE LAW REQUIRES WE TAKE VALUE AND CUT IT IN HALF AND REDUCE IT BY 50 PERCENT.T'S JUST A CONSERVATIVE EXERCISE.OU CAN RUN THE NUMBERS, BUT WE ARE

GOING TO TELL YOU YOU CAN'T USE THAT. >> OR SAYING GENERAL TAXES HAVE TO COVER 50 PERCENT AND THE DEVELOPMENT HAS TO COVER 50 PERCENT.

>> IT'S NOT A DOLLAR BY DOLLAR RECOVERY. IT'S $0.50 ON THE DOLLAR BASICALLY. SO THE RESULTS OF THAT, OF THE DOLLAR PER SERVICE UNIT FROM ROADWAY, THIS IS VEHICLE MILE, YOUR CURRENT MAXIMUM. IS NOT WHAT YOU ARE COLLECTING, BUT YOUR MAXIMUMS FOR SERVICE AREA ONE IS 855 AND SERVICE AREA TWO IS 466.THE NEW CALCULATED MAXIMUM IS 1418 FOR SERVICE AREA ONE AND 677 FOR SERVICE AREA TWO.

>> A BIG JUMP. >> ONE IS NORTH AND TWO SOUTH PIER THINK ABOUT TOP TO BOTTOM.

TO GIVE YOU MORE DETAIL ON WHAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY COLLECTING, THIS IS THE SAME GRAPH EXCEPT WE ADDED A COLLECTION RATE TO THE GRAPH. YOUR CURRENT COLLECTION RATE FOR SERVICE AREA ONE IS 3490. FOR SINGLE-FAMILY. SORRY.

WE HAD TO GIVE A SPECIFIC EXAMPLE. SINGLE-FAMILY HAS A CERTAIN VEHICLE MILE NUMBER OF 4.85. YOU HAD TO DO THE MATH. FOR A SINGLE-FAMILY, WHICH IS

EASY TO RELATE TWO FOR ALL OF US, THAT IS YOUR CURRENT RATE. >> THAT IS JUST CRAZY YOU BUILD THE HOUSE NORTH OF 66 AND IT'S THAT COST AND SOUTH OF 66 IS THAT COST.

>> THE COLLECTION RATE YOU CHARGES A DECISION BY THE CURRENT COUNCIL.

>> VERY INTERESTING. >> YOGA TO MAKE THE DECISION. YOU CAN SEE WHERE TO BE DETERMINED QUESTION MARK QUESTION MARK THIS IS WHAT YOU GET TO DECIDE.

[00:25:01]

>> I THINK PART OF THE REASON IS THE SOUTH OF 66 IS MORE BUILT OUT.

IF YOU GO BACK TO THE ONE ROAD -- >> I KNOW WHAT'S CAUSING IT.

I JUST THINK IT'S VERY INTERESTING FROM A HOMEOWNERS STANDPOINT IT MAKES NO SENSE.

MECHANICALLY I KNOW WHAT'S CAUSING IT. >> YEAH.

THAT'S IMPORTANT.ELEGATE TO MAKE THE DECISION OF WHAT YOU WANTED TO BE.

THAT'S A BUSINESS DECISION. >> I WOULD BE INTERESTED HOW YOU JUSTIFY THE DECISION FIVE YEARS AGO THAT YOU CHARGE MORE 41 HOUSE THEN ANOTHER BECAUSE IT'S NORTH OF 66.

I KNOW WHY THE NUMBERS ARE COMING OUT THAT WAY, BUT THE ULTIMATE DECISION IS DISCRETION

OF. >> LET'S KEEP GOING. THIS IS KIND OF THE GOAL IS AT THE END TO TALK ABOUT IT. THE WATER AND WASTEWATER THE SAME KIND OF MENTALITY.

IF YOU LOOK AT YOUR CURRENT, YOUR MAXIMUM 1466 FOR WATER AND 1377 FOR WASTEWATER.

RESIDENTIAL YOU CAN SEE WE COLLECTED YOUR MAXIMUM, CURRENT MAXIMUM.

RESIDENTIAL WE CUT THAT IN HALF. COUNCIL DECIDED TO CUT IT IN HALF. THOSE WHICH ARE CURRENT COLLECTION RATE IS TODAY.

THE NEW MAXIMUM WE CALCULATED IN THE REPORT IS DOWN AT THE BOTTOM, 2253 FOR WATER AND 1189 FOR WASTEWATER. THAT HAS GONE DOWN. OBVIOUSLY, THE GOAL IS FOR Y'ALL TO DECIDE. SOME TRENDS OVER THE LAST THREE STUDIES THAT WE HAVE DONE FOR ROADWAY FOR SERVICE AREA TWO IS LOOKED AT. THE MAXIMUM IN 13 WAS 698.

IT DROPPED A LITTLE BIT IN 2016. THAT IS TIDE A LITTLE BIT TO A LESS AGGRESSIVE GROWTH RATE THAT COUNSEL TALKED ABOUT AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, LESS PEOPLE COMING IN ITS MORE DOLLARS DISTRIBUTED AMONG LESS PEOPLE AND THAT IS GOING TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE. I SENT IT BACKWARDS.

A MORE AGGRESSIVE GROWTH RATE. WE CAME AND RECOVERY AND EVERYTHING IS ROLLING GOOD.

A MORE AGGRESSIVE APPROACH IN ' 16. WE ARE LITTLE LESS AGGRESSIVE.

>> 2016 IS ALSO BECAUSE THEY INCORPORATED THE SITE. >> MORE GROWTH MAKING THAT DOLLAR AMOUNT. WATER. I JUST GAVE THE NUMBERS.

YOU CAN SEE THE NUMBER DROPPED A LITTLE BIT ON WASTEWATER. PART IF THAT IS POPULATION INCREASED.ISPROPORTIONATELY HIGHER THAN THE CIP PLAN. YOU'RE DIVIDING THAT BY MORE PEOPLE. . SO PROPOSE COLLECTION RATES PICK COUNCIL SAID THE COLLECTION RATE NOT TO EXCEED THE 2019 MAXIMUM.

THAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE TASKED TO DO. THE IMPROVEMENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE STAFF WILL PROVIDE RECOMMENDATION TO COUNSEL TO GIVE YOU A STARTING POINT.

THAT IS NOT THE FEE YOU HAVE TO COLLECT, BUT GIVES A GOOD BASELINE OF WHAT STAFF HAS TALKED ABOUT WITH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOLKS. WE WILL SHOW YOU IN A LITTLE BIT. THIS GRAPH IS PRETTY BUSY. I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU SOME

TABLES THAT ILLUSTRATE THIS A LITTLE BIT BETTER. >> I GUESS I JUST WANT TO HIGHLIGHT ON WHAT WE ARE SHOWING HERE. THERE ARE THREE OPTIONS, MAIN OPTIONS, THAT WE CAN LOOK AT SETTING THE NEW RATES. WE CAN KEEP THE NEW RATES THE SAME. THAT'S OPTION NUMBER ONE IN THE LEFT-HAND COLUMN.

CURRENTLY RIGHT NOW THE RATE STRUCTURE IS LOOKING AT A PERCENT OF THE MAXIMUM ACCESSIBLE FEE THAT IS CALCULATED IN THE STUDY AND USING THAT PERCENTAGE AS THE BASIS TO DETERMINE THE COLLECTION RATE. THE WAY IT IS STRUCTURED RIGHT NOW IS WITH THE EXCEPTION CURRENTLY OF SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES ALL LAND USE CATEGORIES

HAVE THE SAME FEE AND SERVICE AREA TWO AS SERVICE AREA ONE. >> AS THEY SHOULD.

>> AND SO WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES THE COLLECTED RATE IS SOME PERCENTAGE LESS THAN WHAT THE MAXIMUM IS. WE ARE PROPOSING THE SAME

[00:30:04]

STRUCTURE FOR THE CURRENT STUDY. THERE'S A THIRD OPTION AND THAT IS TO CHARGE THE MAXIMUM FEE. WE CAN TALK ABOUT SOMETHING IN BETWEEN.

>> I WILL CONTINUE WITH SOME SIMILAR GRAPHS. THIS IS THE CURRENT RATE ON THE LEFT SIDE. YOU SEE RESIDENTIAL AND NONRESIDENTIALS.

FOR 2019 THERE'S A NEW RESIDENTIAL MAX NUMBER. IF YOU CUT IN HALF --.

SO THIS IS EASIER TO LOOK AT AS FAR IS COMPARING TO SOME OF YOUR NEIGHBORING CITIES.HIS IS THE COMPARISON FOR ROADWAY IMPACT FEE FOR SINGLE-FAMILY FOR SERVICE AREA ONE.

>> THE BAR ON THE RIGHT IS RELEVANT EXCEPT FOR THE MAX. IT SCARED ME BECAUSE IT SAYS

ROLEX. >> YOU CAN GO AS HIGH AS THAT VALUE.

THE BOXES WITH ALL THE BUSY NUMBERS THIS GRAPHICALLY SHOWS YOU WHAT JEFF WAS TELLING YOU

AS A RECOMMENDATION IS THE YELLOW BOX. >> SO CONCEPTUALLY WHY IS

ROCKWELL SO LOW? IS THAT ALL OF THE RETAIL? >> I DON'T KNOW WHETHER MAXIMUM WAS. IT COULD BE COUNSEL CHOSE TO SET IT.

>> I AM ASKING BUSINESS PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM. >> IT'S A LOT OF THE MAJOR

THOROUGHFARES.HAT'S WHEN IDEA. >> I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING

CAUSING THAT. >> LET ME WALK THROUGH A FEW OTHERS.

>> JUST BECAUSE IT'S NOT A CURRENT RATE. EVERYTHING ELSE IS CURRENT.

. THIS GIVES YOU AN EXAMPLE OF THE DEPARTMENTS PER ROADWAY IN SERVICE AREA ONE. I WILL KEEP GOING AND SHOW YOU THE VALUES AND WE CAN DISCUSS.

AN EXAMPLE OF A TYPICAL APPLEBEE'S TYPE RESTAURANT. THEY CAME INTO TOWN.

>> LOOK AT FRISCO. >> THAT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF CHANGE FOR THEM.

>> THAT WAS 2019. >> I WAS PART OF THAT. THE STAFF PUSHED TRYING TO GET

MORE DOLLARS IN THE DOOR FOR THE AMOUNT OF GROWTH HAPPENING. >> IS THAT THE MAX RATE THEY

COULD HAVE CHARGED?> I THINK SO. >> WE HAVE TO VERIFY THAT.

>> THEY GOT PRETTY AGGRESSIVE. THEY WEREN'T LIKE THAT IN THE PAST.

. >> WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THOSE? >> PART FEEDBACK FROM THE STAFF. IT SHOWS CITIES THAT ARE SIMILAR.

>> IF THERE'S OTHERS Y'ALL WOULD LIKE TO SEE, WE CAN PROVIDE THAT WHEN WE COME TO

YOU AT THE PUBLIC HEARING. >> I JUST THINK FRISCO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US.

IT'S INTERESTING TO HAVE THESE CHARTS BECAUSE IT IS SO CRAZY. >> IT BECOMES KIND OF GROWTH

BENCHMARK. >> IT IS SO IRRELEVANT TO OUR WORLD.

I WOULD RATHER SEE RICHARDSON AND PLANO. RICHARDSON WOULD BE GOOD TO SEE.

FOUR OR FIVE ON THE LEFT ARE NEARBY. YOU HAVE RICHARDSON AND PLANO

AND THAT IS OUR WHOLE AREA. >> I LIKE HAVING FRISCO ON THIS TODAY.

I THINK IT'S INTERESTING BUT NOT RELEVANT. I THINK IT'S GOOD FOR PEOPLE TO

[00:35:05]

KNOW.

RICHARDSON AND ALLEN THOUGH? >> I DON'T KNOW. LOOK AT RICHARDSON.

>> PLANO. >> ALSO THEY DON'T HAVE ANY IMPACT FEES.

>> THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF GROWTH. >> WOULD RICHARDSON BE GOOD TO

PUT ON THERE? >> YES. .

COMPARISON. THIS ISN'T RIGHT, SO I'M GOING TO SKIP IT.

IF YOU LOOK AT IT, NUMBERS ARE SIMILAR. DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

HERE'S WATER COMPARISON. YOUR CURRENT 1500 PROPOSED AND MAX.

THE. >>> 'SAND PROPOSED IS THE SAME NUMBER.

>> CAN WE ALSO PUT GRAPEVINE IN THERE? THEY HAVE A SIMILAR POPULATION.

>> WASTEWATER. >> DOES GARLAND EVEN DO WASTEWATER?

>> GO BACK. I DIDN'T NOTICE THIS BEFORE, BUT ROCKWELL ALSO DID IT IN 19.

FRISCO AND ROCKWELL. SACHSE IS DELINQUENT.

>> THEY CAN CHOOSE TO STAY WITH THE SAME. JUST REVIEW.

>> OKAY. CIC DIRECTION. THEY UNANIMOUSLY PASSED A RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL TO APPROVE THE 2019 LAND-USE ASSUMPTIONS AND CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PLAN. THE RECOMMENDED TO INCREASE THE RATE FROM 97 PERCENT TO 100 PERCENT MAXIMUM. THIS IS THE OTHER THING. STAFF MET WITH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO DISCUSS RESTAURANTS AND OFFICE LAND USES.

THEY MET WITH THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT GROUP ON THE 26TH OF THIS PAST MONTH.

THE GOAL TO REMAIN COMPETITIVE IN OFFICE, SIT DOWN RESTAURANTS, HOTELS.

THAT IS SHOWING SOME OF THE EXAMPLES. DO WE WANT TO GO BACK TO ANY OF

THE SLIDES? >> I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE MULTI FAMILY ONE.

>> SURE. >> SO THE PROPOSED IS IT 97 PERCENT?

IT'S NOT. I'M CONFUSED BY THE LAST SLIDE. >> I CAN EXPLAIN THAT.

AGAIN, THE PERCENT THAT'S BEING APPLIED TO THE MAXIMUM IS IN SERVICE AREA TWO.

REMEMBER THE CURRENT STRUCTURE AND THE WAY WE HAVE KEPT IT. WE ARE PROPOSING -- WHICH WE CAN CHANGE -- IS IN SERVICE AREA TWO WHICH CONTROLS.HEN YOU TAKE THAT NUMBER, THE FEE THAT YOU CALCULATE, AND IT GETS APPLIED TO SERVICE AREA TWO, A MUCH LOWER PERCENTAGE OF

SERVICE AREA TWO. >> THE 385 IS THE OTHER SERVICE AREA.

>> SERVICE AREA ONE, YES. >> CAN YOU GO BACK TO THE SLIDE THAT SHOWS ONE AND TWO FOR

APARTMENTS? >> SO RESTAURANTS, OFFICES, ARE BEING ASSESSED AT 30 PERCENT

MAXIMUM. >> WHY WOULD WE NOT CHARGE THE MAX FOR APARTMENTS? I MEAN, I WOULD SUGGEST THE MAX IN SERVICE AREA ONE IN SERVICE AREA TWO.

>> ALSO, I HAVE A QUESTION. YOUR SINGLE-FAMILY HOME IN THE BOX WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT THERE,

[00:40:02]

IT SAYS 100 PERCENT OF MAX. ON THE RIGHT THE MAX IS 6877, BUT IT'S ONLY 3283.

>> AGAIN, THE PERCENT OF MAX IS IN SERVICE AREA TWO. >> THEY TAKE THE LOWEST ONES SO

THEY ARE CONSISTENT IN BOTH SERVICE AREAS. >> OKAY.>> YOU COULD FOR

OPTION TWO. >> LIKE TODAY, WE CHARGE TWO DIFFERENT RATES FOR SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES NORTH AND SOUTH THAT WAS MY POINT EARLIER.

WHY THE HECK ARE WE DOING THAT? >> I CAN EXPLAIN IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO.

>> OKAY. I KNOW WHY THE NUMBERS CAME OUT.

MY QUESTION IS WHAT WAS COUNCIL THINKING FIVE YEARS AGO? WAS ON COUNSEL THEN.

WHY WOULD WE CHARGE A DIFFERENT RATE? >> THE ANSWER IS YOU DID NOT.

FIVE YEARS AGO, IN 2013, THE ADOPTED FEES WERE THE SAME IN BOTH SERVICE AREAS.

WHAT HAPPENED WAS 2016 THE ROADWAY FEE STRUCTURE WAS RESTUDIED BECAUSE OF BAYSIDE.

BAYSIDE GOT WRAPPED INTO SERVICE AREA TWO. SERVICE AREA ONE WAS NEVER UPDATED. SO SERVICE AREA TWO, BECAUSE BAYSIDE HAS MORE GROWTH, --

>> LOOK AT YOU. >> THAT'S THE ANSWER. >> THAT MAKES SENSE.

>> SERVICE AREA ONE WASN'T CHANGED. >> SO THAT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE THAT WAY. WE SHOULD HAVE A LOOKED AT

SERVICE AREA ONE. >> WE CAN ALSO MAKE THAT DECISION.

>> IT WAS NEVER DISCUSSED. >> CURRENTLY, IF YOU LOOK AT THE MIDDLE COLUMN, WE HAVE KEPT TO THE EQUALITY CONCEPT FOR SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES.> THANK YOU FOR CLEARING THAT UP.

THAT DIDN'T MAKE ANY SENSE TO ME. >> IS Y'ALL'S CHOICE TO DECIDE

THAT. >> I WOULD DO MAX PER DEPARTMENT.

. >> I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE I'M CLEAR.

FOR APARTMENTS, YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE US TAKE, ASSESS THE COLLECTION RATES TO BE THE MAXIMUM IN EACH SERVICE AREA WHICH MEANS THE FEES WILL BE DIFFERENT.

>> YES. >> OKAY. >> AND IN FIVE YEARS I WON'T BE HERE.

HERE.

>> I DON'T THINK SO PERSONALLY. >> OKAY. >> WHAT YOU ALLTHINK?

>> I THINK APARTMENTS. .

>> I AM DOING THE FRISCO MODEL WITH APARTMENTS.

I AM DOING THE FRISCO MODEL WITH APARTMENTS.

>> COMMERCIAL. >> THERE IS RESIDENTIAL CONDO TOWNHOUSE.

>> CAN WE GO BACK TO THE LAST SLIDE, OR THE LAST COUPLE SLIDES?

THE CIAC IS COMPRISED OF? >> PLANNING AND ZONING. ESSENTIALLY THE PLANNING AND

ZONING. >> THE PAGES THAT SAYS CIAC IS RECOMMENDING --.

SORRY.OKAY. SO WE ARE PUTTING THE SECOND BULLET ON STEROIDS.

. THERE WE GO. >> THEY ALSO WANTED US TO LOOK AT THE PERCENTAGES BEING COLLECTED RIGHT NOW AT RESTAURANTS AND OFFICES.

THEY THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE TOO LOW. CURRENTLY THE PERCENT OF

MAXIMUM IS 30 PERCENT. >> I THINK THAT IS PRETTY LOW. >> I THINK SO.

DO WANT TO LOOK AT THE COMPARISON? >> YEAH.

>> I THINK THAT IS WAY LOW. >> 50 PERCENT WOULD GET THAT IN LINE.

GO TO THE NEXT CATEGORY. >> 50 PERCENT. >> THE THIRD CATEGORY?

>> YOU ALREADY SAID WHAT YOU WANT TO DO THERE. >> CAN WE LOOK AT IT WHEN IT

COMES BEFORE US NEXT TIME? >> OFFICE AND RESTAURANTS? >> IS THAT WHAT CIAC WAS

[00:45:09]

RECOMMENDING? >> THEY WANTED US TO LOOK AT IT.

>> JIM, COMMENT? >> THE MORE COMPETITIVE WE ARE THE BETTER IT IS FROM AN

ATTRACTION STANDPOINT. >> ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT ANYTHING?

>> AS FAR AS RAISING 30-50 PERCENT? >> ARE THERE ANY AREAS OF

CONCERN THAT YOU HAVE? >> WE TALKED ABOUT KNOWING WHAT OUR PRIMARY GROWTH IS FOR NORTH SHORE AND TRYING TO BE AS COMPETITIVE AS WE CAN BE FROM A FEE STANDPOINT WHEN WE ARE TRYING TO ATTRACT EMPLOYMENT BASE, OFFICE AND SPECIALTY RETAIL, DESTINATION RETAIL, SO

TRYING TO BE COMPETITIVE. >> EVEN AT 50 PERCENT, IT'S LOWER THAN FIVE OF THOSE ON

THERE. >> GO BACK ONE. >> WE HAVE ANOTHER SHOT AT THIS IF THEY MADE SOME REVISIONS TO IT. WE WILL DO THIS IN OPEN

>> ITEM 3B APPROVING AND AWARDING A CONTRACT TO SUNBELT TO THE 533-17 IN THE AMOUNT OF $217,557.50 FOR REPLACING THE SIDE TOWER, DECK AND STAIRS FOR THE RED AND YELLOW SLIDE AT WET

ZONE WATERPARK. >> I CAN TALK FAST. ARE YOU READY? HISTORY OF WET ZONE. WET ZONE OPENED IN 2001. THAT IS OUR POPULATION OVER THE LAST -- UPCOMING SEASON WILL BE OUR 20TH YEAR, SO OVER THE LAST 19 YEARS 980,286 GUESTS.

>> THAT'S THE ATTENDANCE? >> YEAH. OVER THE YEARS.

SOME OF THE DECREASE YOU SEE IS FROM THAT. THE PAST 19 YEARS WET ZONE

[00:50:03]

WATERPARK WILL CELEBRATE ITS 1 MILLIONTH VISITOR THIS YEAR. WE CAN'T WAIT.

IN ADDITION TO IT BEING THE 20TH YEAR. BEHIND ME IS OPERATIONS MANAGER AND AUSTIN WHO HAS BEEN PART OF THE PARK SINCE 2011 AND CURRENT ATHLETICS AND AQUATICS SUPERVISOR.N 19 YEARS, THE SLIDE AND STRUCTURE THAT YOU SEE IN THIS PICTURE, THE BLUE

AND WHITE, IT IS NOW BROWN AND GREEN. >> WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING WITH

THE MILLIONTH CA GUEST. >> WE HAVE DONE SEVERAL MAINTENANCE PROJECTS. IS TIME TO DO SOMETHING TO THAT STRUCTURE.

WHEN WET ZONE OPENED, THIS WAS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FEATURES. THE RED AND YELLOW SLIDE.

THE PLAYGROUND IN 2002 WE ADDED THE SLIDE. OVER TIME, DUE TO EXPOSURE, WE HAVE REMOVED KERPLUNK AND ADDED HALEY'S HURRICANE SLIDE AND SPEED SLIDE.

THAT IS THE GREEN AND BLUE SLIDE. WE HAVE REPAIRED THE RAPID RIPPLE STRUCTURE AND SLIDE BALLOONS AND WE ARE GETTING READY TO REPLACE THE PLAYGROUNDS AND WATER CANNONS AND THAT WILL BE AT THE NEXT MEETING.

THAT WAS FUNDED THROUGH 2018. THIS IS KIND OF THE MAINTENANCE PLAN WE FOLLOW.

TEXAS MUNICIPAL COMES OUT AND DOES A PARK EVALUATION. THIS IS REQUIRED IN ORDER FOR US TO GET OUR SLIDE OPERATION LICENSE FROM THE STATE OF TEXAS.THEY DO THIS.

THEY FILL OUT SOME PAPERWORK AND WE FILL OUT SOME PAPERWORK AND WE PAY A FEE AND IT'S ACTUALLY AN AMUSEMENT RIDE. OUR SLIDES ARE ACTUALLY AMUSEMENT RIDES.

WE CLEAN AND WAX AND DO GENERAL MAINTENANCE. EVEN DAILY OUR STAFF DOES A FULL INSPECTION OF BOTH OF THE SLIDE TOWERS AND STRUCTURES FOR SAFETY, CLEANLINESS AND OPERATION. MAINTENANCE HISTORY. IN 2014, WE DID A REPAIR OF THE SLIDE TOWER. THIS IS SOME BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES YOU CAN SEE ON THE FAR LEFT BEFORE AND FAR RIGHT THE AFTER. WE ACTUALLY IN 2014 DID SOME PRETTY MAJOR WORK ON SOME OF THEM. WE DIDN'T DO ALL THE PLATFORMS. ONLY THE ONES WITH THE WORST ISSUES. WE REPLACE THE STAIR TREADS.

THE PICTURE ON THE FAR SIDE. 2015 WE REFURBISH THE OUTSIDE OF BOTH SLIDES AND THE INSIDE OF BOTH SLIDES. A COMPANY COMES IN AND COMPLETELY RESURFACE THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE AND REPAINT. BASICALLY THE SLIDE STRUCTURE THEMSELVES LOOK BRAND-NEW WHEN THEY GET DONE. THEY ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

THEY LOOKED AT THOSE AS WELL WHILE THEY WERE THERE. MAY 2019 TML CAME OUT TO DO ANNUAL INSPECTION AND THEY HAD SOME CONCERNS. THEY HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT BOLTS AND SLIDE STRUCTURE -- I MEAN, STAIR STRUCTURE. THE RECOMMENDATION AT THAT TIME WAS THAT WE HAVE THE COMPANY COME OUT AND ENGINEER FROM SLASH-TACKLER WHO BUILT THE SLIDE INTO THOUSAND ONE AND INSTALLED IT AND INSPECT THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE AND SLIDE, STAIR STRUCTURE AND SLIDE, AND GIVE US A RECOMMENDATION ON WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE PRIOR TO THE 2020 SEASON. THAT WAS REALLY THE TML RECOMMENDATION THAT WE DEVELOP A PLAN TO EVALUATE AND REPAIR OR REPLACE IT. THE NEXT STEP, PER THE RECOMMENDATION, WE HAD SLASH-TACKLER, COMPANY THAT DESIGNED, MANUFACTURED AND DESIGNED THE SLIDE COME OUT. ONE OF THEIR ENGINEERS AND VICE PRESIDENT OF THE ORGANIZATION CAME OUT AND TOOK THINGS APART. HE KNOWS ALL THE PLACES TO CHECK.

HIS RECOMMENDATION WAS TO REPLACE THE STAIR STRUCTURE NOW AND NOT TRY TO DO A REHAB PROJECT ON IT AGAIN. HE JUST THOUGHT IT WAS TIME AND PROBABLY PAST THE POINT OF DOING SANDBLASTING AND MAKING REPAIRS AND JUST TRYING TO REPAINT IT.

SINCE SLASH-TACKLER DID THE ORIGINAL SLIDE STRUCTURE, THEY WERE ABLE TO GO IN AND REPLACE THE STAIR STRUCTURE. THEY TAKE PARTS OF THE SLIDE APART AND THEY CAN MAKE SURE THE SAME ENGINEERED PARTS WILL STILL HOLD FOR THE STAIR STRUCTURE IS LITERALLY HAVING TO BE FABRICATED FROM SCRATCH SO IT MATCHES EXACTLY WHAT WE HAVE.

THIS IS THE RECOMMENDATION REPLACEMENT OF STAIRS, RAILINGS, PLATFORMS AND LANDINGS. THE TREADS ARE LIKE THE BASIC WHITE THAT YOU SAW IN THE PICTURE. THE GUARD RAILING. THE REPLACEMENT OF THE UPPER

[00:55:02]

PLATFORM AND INTERMEDIATE LANDINGS. ALL NEW HARDWARE FOR ALL OF THOSE STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS. ALL THIS DEAL THAT WILL BE GALVANIZED WITH THE POWDER FINISH WHICH WILL HELP OUTLIVE THE LIFE OF PAINT. IN WET ENVIRONMENT, METAL DOESN'T LIVE VERY WELL. THEY WILL REPLACE THE RUSTED HARDWARE THAT WAS NOTED IN THE TML REPORT ON THE BRACKETS THAT YOU SAW. THIS IS THE WATERSLIDE.

THEY WILL HAVE TO TAKE APART THE TOP THIRD. THEY WILL TAKE DOWN THE TOWER.

THEY WILL REINSTALL THE TOWER, SPORTS, AND PUT THE SLIDE BACK TOGETHER.

THEY WILL MAKE SURE IT IS ENGINEERED CORRECTLY, THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE PEDESTALS ALREADY IN PLACE. AGAIN, SLASH-TACKLER WAS ENGINEER OF RECORD BEHIND THE FOUNDATION SUPPORTING THE CURRENT TOWER, SUPPORTS AND SLIDE.

THEY FEEL CONFIDENT THEY CAN PUT A NEW STEEL TOWER AND COMPONENTS ON THE EXISTING FOUNDATION.HEY DID QUITE A BIT OF STUDY ON EXISTING FOUNDATIONS WHILE THEY WERE THERE. THE PROJECT COST SAVINGS HAS ALLOWED US TO HAVE NECESSARY FUNDING. RECOMMENDATION FROM THE SLIDE MANUFACTURED TO REPLACE THE SLIDE TOWER AT THIS TIME. THE SAFETY OF OUR PATRONS IS A CRITICAL ELEMENT FOR THE CITY OF BRALETTE PROTECTING THE LONGEVITY OF OUR EQUIPMENT PARAMOUNT.

IT WILL HELP US DO THAT AND HELP US GET MANY ADDITIONAL YEARS OUT OF THE SLIDE.

POSSIBLY 15-20. SUNBELT IS A LOCAL COMMERCIAL POOL COMPANY AND THEY ARE WILLING AND ABLE TO PARTNER DIRECTLY WITH SLASH-TACKLER TO ENSURE THIS SLIDE TOWER IS FABRICATED AND INSTALLED PRIOR TO THE MAY 2020 OPENING. WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE ANNUAL INSPECTION WITH THE TEXAS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE. PIT IS IMPORTANT.

MIKE SHAW IS A LONG-TERM PARKS AND REC AQUATICS PROFESSIONAL. HE HAS BEEN DOING THIS A VERY LONG TIME. I WORKED WITH MIKE MOST OF MY CAREER.

HE'S A GREAT RESOURCE FOR US EVEN WHEN HE IS NOT DOING THIS INSPECTION. WE ARE IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH HIM. WE RECENTLY TALKED TO HIM AND SHARED WHAT

>> IT DETERS PEOPLE FROM GOING INSIDE THE PARK.

THEY ARE ALWAYS ON. 2020 PROJECTS, THAT WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE DECEMB DECEMBER 17TH.

WE'RE PULLING OUT THE OLD PLAYGROUND AND WATER CANNONS.

WE WILL FOCUS ON TURTLE COVE WHICH IS OUR SMALL FOOT AND A HALF DEEP. WE HAVE FEATURES IN THERE WE ARE GOING TO WORK ON AS WELL. THAT IS W WHAT WHAT IS NEEDED.

>> WHEN YOU GET CLOSE TO VOTING, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO STOP

BLAKE. >> THAT WAS MEAN.

>> WITH THE HIPPO SUIT. >> WE NEED VOLUNTEERS.

>> THANK YOU GUYS VERY MUCH. >> I HAVE ASKED TO PULL ITEM 7B

[4. DISCUSS CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS]
