YOU CALL THE ALLEN CITY COUNCIL MEETING TO ORDER AND ANNOUNCE THAT WE DO HAVE A QUORUM

[1. Call to Order and Announce a Quorum is Present.]

PRESENT, AND I WOULD ASK EVERYONE PRESENT IF YOU COULD PLEASE RISE AND JOIN ME IN THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE.

THANK YOU AND PLEASE BE SEATED.

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WELCOME TO 2022.

GLAD TO HAVE YOU ALL HERE THIS EVENING.

SO OUR NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS TO TAKE CITIZENS COMMENTS.

SO IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS ABOUT ANY ITEM THAT'S NOT ON THE AGENDA AND NOT SCHEDULE FOR A PUBLIC HEARING, YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME FORWARD AND SPEAK AT THIS TIME.

IS THERE ANYONE WISHING TO COME FORWARD? IF NOT, THEN WE WILL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ITEM IN THE NEXT ITEM IS IS THAT I

[3.2 Presentation of the Mayor's Distinguished Service Award to Chief Jonathan Boyd.]

AM GOING TO PRESENT A BELATED AWARD CALLED THE MAYOR'S DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD, AND I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND GO DOWN FRONT TO DO THIS.

YES, HE DID. YEAH, COME ON.

SO AT OUR BOARD APPRECIATION DINNER BACK ON DECEMBER 3RD, I GAVE OUT SEVERAL MAYORS DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARDS, AND THIS EVENING I'M GOING TO GIVE ONE TO JONATHAN BOARD, THE ALLEN CITY FIRE CHIEF.

HE WAS ACTUALLY AT THAT DINNER THAT NIGHT AND HE SAT AT THE TABLE WITH ME.

WE HAD CONVERSATION, HAD A GREAT TIME.

AND WHEN IT CAME TIME TO PRESENT THE AWARD, HE HAD TO GET UP AND LEAVE.

HE GOT THIS CALL AND WHEN HE LEFT, I JOKED ABOUT, OH, HE'S PROBABLY GOING TO PUT OUT A FIRE. WELL, THAT'S WHERE HE ACTUALLY WENT.

I DON'T KNOW IF EVERYBODY RECALLS, BUT WE HAD THE GAS EXPLOSION AND BIG FIRE AT LIFETIME FITNESS, AND HE WAS CALLED TO DUTY AND THAT'S WHAT HE DID.

AND SO WE HAD TO KIND OF DELAY THIS UNTIL TONIGHT.

SO IT'S MY HONOR AND PRIVILEGE TO BE ABLE TO PRESENT THIS AWARD TO HIM, JUST SO THAT EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THE MAYOR'S DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD IS PRESENTED TO ANYONE, THAT OR NOT ANYONE, BUT TO CITIZENS WHO HAVE SERVED THE COMMUNITY OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, BOTH THROUGH VOLUNTEER SERVICE AND THEIR PROFESSIONAL SERVICE IN WAYS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO OUR COMMUNITY BEING WHAT IT IS TODAY AND BEING VERY SUCCESSFUL.

AND YOU CAN DO THIS THROUGH MANY DIFFERENT AVENUES, WHETHER YOU'RE DOING IT THROUGH THE LIBRARY, THROUGH, YOU KNOW, PUBLIC SAFETY VENUE OR ANYTHING ELSE.

PARKS AND RECREATION IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE.

AND THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE DONE MULTIPLE THINGS THROUGH MANY OF THESE VENUES.

SO TONIGHT I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND PRESENT THIS AWARD TO JONATHAN.

HAVE A COUPLE OF THINGS TO SAY ABOUT HIM.

SO I WILL GO AHEAD AND INTRODUCE JONATHAN.

I HAVE JONATHAN COME UP AND I'LL HAVE HIS WIFE COME FORWARD TO AMANDA, IF YOU'D LIKE TO.

MANY PEOPLE MAY NOT REALIZE, BUT THIS IS A FAMILY OF SERVICE.

NOT ONLY DOES JOHNSON DO A LOT OF THINGS IN THE COMMUNITY, BUT HIS WIFE, AMANDA DOES AS WELL. I SERVED WITH HER ON THE ALLEN LIBRARY ENDOWMENT FUND BOARD, AND I KNOW SHE'S DONE SOME OTHER THINGS WITH THE LIBRARY AND SOME OTHER ORGANIZATIONS AS WELL.

SO IT'S A IT'S A KIND OF A FAMILY THING.

SO MAYBE IN A WAY THIS IS A FAMILY AWARD.

IS THAT RIGHT? OH, OKAY.

BUT ANYWAY, I JUST WANT TO LET EVERYBODY KNOW THAT JONATHAN HAS BEEN EMPLOYED WITH THE CITY OF ALLEN FOR OVER TWENTY FIVE YEARS IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.

OBVIOUSLY, HE'S THE FIRE CHIEF, AND SO HE'S DONE THAT.

HE'S ALSO SERVED IN VARIOUS COMMUNITY SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS, PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS, WHICH SOME OF WHICH ARE STATEWIDE.

AND HE'S ALSO BEEN WE WERE IN THE SAME ROTARY CLUB TOGETHER.

I THINK YOU KIND OF SWITCHED CLUBS, BUT THAT'S OK.

WE'LL FORGIVE YOU FOR THAT.

BUT BUT HE WAS THE CLUB PRESIDENT FOR THE ROTARY CLUB OF ALLEN SUNRISE, AMONG OTHER THINGS. I BELIEVE YOU'RE ALSO AN EAGLE SCOUT.

I AM, AND I DON'T SAY THAT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE TO BE ABLE TO GET THIS AWARD. BUT I MENTION THAT BECAUSE I THINK THAT'S A TESTAMENT TO HIM AND THAT HE STARTED COMMUNITY SERVICE AT A VERY YOUNG AGE AND IT'S JUST CONTINUED ON.

AND THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I LIKE ABOUT THE SCOUTING PROGRAM IS THEY TEACH, ENCOURAGE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY.

AND ONCE YOU KIND OF GET THAT BUG, IT'S HARD TO LET THAT BUG GO, YOU KNOW, GET AWAY FROM YOU. SO SO YOU CONTINUE TO SERVE THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFETIME.

SO THAT'S THAT'S IN HIS DNA.

BUT THE MAIN THING THAT I WANTED TO RECOGNIZE HIM FOR IS HE WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN SETTING UP OUR VACCINATION HUB FOR THE CITY OF ALLEN.

SO EVERYBODY'S FAMILIAR WITH THAT.

EVERYBODY KNOWS HOW SUCCESSFUL THAT IS.

WELL, HE'S THE GUY THAT WAS THE BRAINS BEHIND IT ALL.

SO BACK IN ABOUT, YOU KNOW, JANUARY 2020, THIS IS BEFORE COVID HIT, WE KIND OF KNEW ABOUT

[00:05:04]

IT. WE HEARD ABOUT IT. WE KNOW IT'S COMING TO ALLEN.

WELL, JONATHAN'S ALREADY SITTING THERE TALKING TO HIS STAFF ABOUT HOW ARE WE GOING TO FIGHT THIS? WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE AN EMERGENCY? YOU KNOW, HE SAW WHAT WAS GOING ON OVERSEAS IN CHINA, AND HE WAS COMING UP WITH PROTOCOLS AND EVERYTHING ELSE TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS THAT WE'RE GOING TO DO TO FIGHT IT.

AND I COULD GO ON WITH A LOT OF DIFFERENT STORIES OF THINGS THAT HAPPEN.

BUT THE BIGGEST THING IS AND WHAT I GOT OUT OF THIS WHEN WHEN I STARTED TALKING TO JONATHAN ABOUT IT WAS, YOU KNOW, HE INDICATED TO ME THAT WE WANTED TO BE ABLE TO VACCINATE THE MOST PEOPLE AS FAST AS WE CAN WITH THE LEAST HINDRANCE TO THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO GET VACCINATED.

AND I WOULD SAY THAT THAT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS.

I WOULD SAY THAT THE ALLEN VACCINATION HUB WAS THE BEST IN COLLIN COUNTY, THE BEST IN THE STATE OF TEXAS, THE BEST IN THE UNITED STATES.

IT WAS JUST THAT GOOD.

WE HAD OPPORTUNITIES TO KIND OF TEAM UP WITH OTHERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

JONATHAN SUGGESTED THAT, YOU KNOW, HE'D ALREADY PUT ENOUGH THOUGHT INTO THIS AND AND HAD A SYSTEM SET UP THAT HE FELT THAT IT WAS BETTER.

AND THERE WERE SOME TECHNICAL ISSUES TO BE ABLE TO TRY TO TAKE WHAT WE HAD ALREADY SET UP AND TRANSFER INTO SOMEBODY ELSE'S PROGRAM.

AND UNDER HIS ADVICE, WE DECIDED THAT WE'RE GOING TO STICK WITH OUR PLAN.

WE DID STICK WITH OUR PLAN AND THAT'S BECAUSE OF HIS RECOMMENDATION, AND I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT WHEN IT WAS ALL SAID AND DONE.

MAY OF 2021, WHEN ALL THE VACCINATIONS WERE FINISHED AT THE ALLEN ISD FOOTBALL STADIUM, WHICH WAS A PARTNER WITH THE CITY WHO HELPED US AND THEY WERE A PART OF THE PLAN AS WELL AS WELL AS CERT, WE HAD CERT VOLUNTEERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND ONE THING I REMEMBER THE CHIEF TELLING ME, HE SAID, YOU KNOW, WE JUST TREATED THIS LIKE A FIRE. YOU KNOW, HOW WOULD YOU PUT OUT A FIRE? THAT'S KIND OF WHAT WE'RE DOING WITH THE PANDEMIC.

WE'RE JUST TRYING TO PUT THE VIRUS OUT ANY WAY THAT WE CAN.

OBVIOUSLY, WE'RE STILL DEALING WITH IT TODAY, BUT IT'S NOT AS BAD AS IT WAS AT THAT TIME.

AND I JUST WANT TO GIVE MY HEARTFELT APPRECIATION AND THANKS TO JONATHAN FOR THE JOB THAT HE DID WITH THAT.

AND THAT'S JUST AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT HE DOES WITH EVERYTHING BUT I TRULY WANT TO SAY THANK YOU AND APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU DO, AND I'VE GOT AN AWARD HERE THAT I WANT TO PRESENT TO YOU. AND I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU, AMANDA.

WELL, I.

OH, HERE WE GO. THERE USED TO BE QUICKER THAN MIKE, I THINK IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THERE'S A BIG, BIG TEAM BEHIND THIS EFFORT AND YOU KNOW, I ACCEPT THIS AWARD ON BEHALF OF THEM. AND YOU KNOW, SOME A LOT OF THEM ARE IN THIS ROOM.

CHELSEA IS RIGHT HERE. SHE WAS IN CHARGE OF OUR COMMUNICATIONS.

THERE IS ALL OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS, THE CITY MANAGER.

EVERYBODY WAS INVOLVED IN MAKING THIS HAPPEN.

SO IT WAS IT WAS A LOT MORE THAN ME.

SO I WILL ACCEPT THIS AWARD ON THEIR BEHALF.

AND THIS IS A VERY EASY COMMUNITY TO SERVE BECAUSE IT IS VERY REWARDING.

SO I'M HONORED TO ACCEPT THIS AWARD.

THANK YOU AGAIN. GREAT.

THANK YOU. IF YOU NEED ANOTHER ONE.

[5.1 Conduct a Public Hearing and Adopt an Ordinance to Amend the Development Regulations of Planned Development No. 141 with a Base Zoning of Mixed Use Relating to the Use and Development of Approximately 74.877 Acres Generally Located Directly South of State Highway 121, East and West of Exchange Parkway and West of Bending Branch Way. (Allen Gateway)]

THE NEXT ITEM ON OUR AGENDA IS ITEM FIVE POINT ONE, WHICH IS TO CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND ADOPT AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENT NUMBER 141, WITH A BASE ZONING OF MIXED USE RELATING TO THE USE AND DEVELOPMENT OF APPROXIMATELY SEVENTY FOUR POINT EIGHT SEVENTY SEVEN ACRES.

GENERALLY LOCATED SOUTH OF STATE HIGHWAY ONE TWENTY ONE EAST AND WEST OF EXCHANGE PARKWAY AND WEST OF BENDING BRANCH WAY ALSO CALLED THE ALLEN GATEWAY.

AND THIS EVENING WE HAVE MARC KURBANSADE, OUR DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

THAT'S GOING TO MAKE A PRESENTATION.

GOOD EVENING, MARC. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

GET THIS LOADED UP FIRST REAL QUICK.

THIS IS THE ITEM THAT WAS JUST READ INTO THE RECORD.

WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS ITEM QUITE A BIT, BUT YOU CAN SEE ITS GENERAL LOCATION HERE CLOSE TO STATE HIGHWAY 121, BOTH ON THE EAST AND WEST SIDES OF EXCHANGE PARKWAY.

THIS IS A LITTLE BIT CLOSER OF A VIEW OF THE THREE DIFFERENT PORTIONS OF THE PROPERTY THAT MAKE UP THE TOTAL OF THE SEVENTY FOUR POINT EIGHT SEVENTY SEVEN ACRES ON THE WEST SIDE OF EXCHANGE PARKWAY IS JUST UNDER FIFTY SIX ACRES.

THAT COMPRISES TWO OF THE CHARACTER DISTRICTS TOLLWAY WEST AND RIDGEVIEW CHANGE CORRIDOR.

OUR CHARACTER AREAS ON THE EAST SIDE OF EXCHANGE IN BETWEEN THE GREENBELT IS JUST UNDER NINE ACRE PROPERTY AND THAT'S ANOTHER SEPARATE CHARACTER DISTRICT.

EXCHANGE CORRIDOR AND THEN THE TOLLWAY EAST CHARACTER DISTRICT, WHICH IS THE 10 ACRE PIECE JUST NORTH OF THE STEAM CENTER.

THE PROPERTY DOES RETAIN AN EXISTING ZONING DESIGNATION OF PD 141 WITH A BASE ZONING DISTRICT OF MIXED USE.

I WANT TO WALK THROUGH EACH OF THE THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS HERE AND JUST GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF COMMENTARY ON THESE.

THEY WERE PROVIDED, OBVIOUSLY IN THE STAFF REPORT AS WELL AS A [INAUDIBLE] WAS PROVIDED AS WELL AS SHOWING THE AMENDED CHANGES.

SO THE FIRST CHANGE IS IN SECTION 2C, TABLE ONE SAYING THAT THERE'S AN ADDITIONAL FOOTNOTE ADDED TO THE TABLE RESTRICTS THE CONSTRUCTION OF ONLY 60 URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS WITHIN 300 FEET OF STATE HIGHWAY 121.

I'VE PROVIDED THE VERTICALLY INTEGRATED.

SO WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THIS SECTION THIS APPLIES TO TRACT 6A IS HIGHLIGHTED BY THE YELLOW STAR HERE IN THE FAR NORTHWEST CORNER OF THE SITE.

WHAT THIS MEANS IS AND YOU'LL SEE IN A SEPARATE TABLE THAT KIND OF FITS DOVETAIL INTO THIS. UNITS WERE KIND OF NOT ADDED OR SUBTRACTED, JUST KIND OF MOVED AROUND ON THE PROPERTY. AND SO THERE'S THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS, TAKING THEM AWAY FROM ONE SECTION OF THE PROPERTY AND MOVING THEM TO ANOTHER SECTION OF PROPERTY.

AND THIS SECTION HIGHLIGHTING YELLOW WOULD ALLOW FOR RESIDENTIAL UNITS TO BE THERE.

BUT WHAT IT SAYS IS THAT THEY CAN'T BE WITHIN 300 FEET OF STATE HIGHWAY 121, SO THAT WAS DONE PURPOSEFUL TO REMOVE THE VIEW SHED FROM STATE HIGHWAY 121 SO THAT URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS WEREN'T FRONTING ON 121.

IT DOES HAVE THE ONE CAVEAT THAT TRACT 6A.

WE TALKED ABOUT BEING A MULTISTORY OFFICE, PERHAPS HOTEL OR CONDOMINIUM MIXED USE WITH A MINIMAL AMOUNT OF URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS VERTICALLY INTEGRATED, MEANING SOME OF THE TOP LEVELS COULD BE CONDOMINIUM USE OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.

AND THAT'S LIKE I SAID, A LOW AMOUNT 60 UNITS WOULD BE ALLOWED WITHIN THAT 300 FEET, BUT ANYTHING ELSE WOULD HAVE TO BE AT LEAST 300 FEET OFFSET FROM STATE HIGHWAY 121.

[00:15:01]

YOU'LL SEE LATER ON IS WHERE THOSE UNITS CAME FROM WAS THE RIDGE VIEW CORRIDOR CHARACTER AREA, WHICH IS THAT SLENDER PIECE ON THE EAST SIDE OF THAT EXCHANGE.

SO THIS IS REALLY TALKING ABOUT THAT OFFICE CONDO CONCEPT.

IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT.

IT ALLOWS FOR 60 UNITS TO BE INCORPORATED INTO THAT OFFICE CONDO CONCEPT.

NO, NO, IT'S NOT. BUT THERE COULD BE IN THAT CHARACTER, THEY COULD BE ALLOWED THERE, BUT THEY WOULD HAVE TO BE AT LEAST 300 FEET OFFSET FROM STATE HIGHWAY 121 IN HIS APARTMENT.

JUST TO BE CLEAR TO KARL'S QUESTION, IS THAT IT IS PART OF THE OF THE NUMBER OF UNITS THAT WERE ARE PART OF THE PHASING PROCESS? CORRECT. IT IS PART OF THE NUMBER.

I MEAN, THEY'RE NOT LIKE, WE'RE NOT CALLING THEM SOMETHING ELSE.

I MEAN, THEY'RE GOING TO BE COLD? AND I'LL SHOW AND THERE'S ABOUT THREE SLIDES FROM HERE.

I'LL SHOW A TABLE THAT KIND OF AND IT WAS IN YOUR STRUCK OUT ON THE LINE, BUT THAT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE CLEAR TO THIS.

SURE. OK. OK, SO THE SECOND ONE IS AND THIS IS REALLY A I'M NOT SURE IF THIS SHOWS UP OR NOT, BUT THIS WAS TALKED ABOUT AND SOME EARLY CONCEPT PLANS ABOUT POTENTIALLY HAVING ON THE NORTH SIDE OF SOME OF OFFICE HERE TO HAVE SOME SURFACE PARKING FACILITIES.

AND SO WHAT WAS CONTEMPLATED WAS WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DO SUBSURFACE HERE? AND FROM MY STANDPOINT, I HAD NO ISSUE BECAUSE IT'S SUBSURFACE.

YOU CAN'T BE SEEN.

BUT WHAT I WANTED TO ENSURE THAT HAPPENS HERE, IF ANYBODY CONTEMPLATES SUBSURFACE ANYWHERE IS THAT ONE THAT UTILITIES ARE UNCOMPROMISING TO THAT ALL THE LANDSCAPING HAS TO HAPPEN. SO FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, AS YOU'RE STANDING THERE LOOKING AT IT FROM THE STREET LEVEL, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING ON THERE.

IT LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT THIS REGULATION DOES IS ALLOWS SUBSURFACE PROVIDED YOU CAN STILL DO LANDSCAPING THINGS LIKE THAT ON TOP OF IT AND ALLOWS FOR AN ENCROACHMENT INTO THE SETBACKS FOR SUBSURFACE PARKING.

OK, SO THIS IS A LOT, A LOT OF WORDS HERE, BUT THIS IS TALKING ABOUT THE PHASING OF URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS TO BE MODIFIED, SO I'M NOT GOING TO READ ALL THIS.

IT'S EASIER TO EXPLAIN IT WITH THIS TABLE EXISTING PHASING RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN THE CURRENT PD.

YOU HAVE PHASE ONE 400 UNRESTRICTED.

THE NEXT 400 COME IN WITH BUILDING PERMITS FOR 100000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE AND THE GATEWAY FOREST COMPLETE PHASE THREE COMES IN FOR ANOTHER 500 CO FOR THAT 100000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE, AND THEN PHASE FOUR COMES IN FOR AN ADDITIONAL 50000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE. SO WHAT'S BEING CHANGED HERE IS WHAT'S SHOWN HERE IN THE ARROWS.

FIRST, THE FIRST PHASE IS BEING REDUCED FROM 400 TO 255 UNITS UNRESTRICTED.

AND WHAT HAPPENS IS PHASE TWO, AS YOU CAN SEE UP HERE, HAS TWO CONDITIONS.

BUILDING PERMITS FOR 100000 SQUARE FEET AND GET WAY FAR AS COMPLETE.

SO WHAT THEY DID IS SEPARATED INTO TWO PHASES 2A AND 2B.

BUILDING PERMITS FOR 100000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE.

GATEWAY FOREST COMPLETE.

WHEN YOU GET DONE WITH PHASE 2B, YOU'RE AT 800 UNITS.

SAME AS YOU ARE IN PHASE TWO.

YOU'RE AT 800 UNITS HERE.

AND THEN IT CARRIES ON EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT WAS IN THE PREVIOUS ONE.

SO REALLY, WHAT HAPPENS HERE IS THAT THERE'S TWO CONDITIONS GOT BROKEN UP INTO A 2A AND 2B. FROM STAFF STANDPOINT, IT SEEMED PRETTY UNEVENTFUL AS FAR AS YOU KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING AND SEEMED PRETTY MUCH IN LINE WHAT WAS HAPPENING BEFORE.

YOU'RE STILL WINDING UP WITH THOSE TWO AMENITIES THE GATEWAY FOREST, 100000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE GETTING DELIVERED.

SO THAT'S I THINK WE'RE PROTECTING AGAINST.

AND SO THAT'S THAT'S WHAT ALL THIS SAYS.

I THINK THAT'S EASIER TO DIGEST.

OK, SO THIS IS THE THE COMPLIMENT TO WHAT I TALKED ABOUT IN MY FIRST SLIDE, SO ALLOCATION OF FOUR HUNDRED URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS IN A TOLLWAY WEST CHARACTER AREA WHERE I WAS TALKING ABOUT EARLIER AND A REMOVAL OF 400 FROM THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY CHARACTER, WHICH IS A SLENDER PIECE ON THE EAST SIDE OF EXCHANGE PARKWAY.

BASICALLY, WHAT HAPPENS HERE IS TOLLWAY WEST.

ORIGINAL PD HAS 100 UNITS ALLOCATED FOR IT.

THERE'S NOW 500 THAT ARE ALLOWED THERE, AND THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY ORIGINALLY HAD FOUR HUNDRED THERE, ZERO ON THAT ONE.

SO EASY MATH SEEING WHERE THE UNITS WENT TO.

NOW THE OTHER PART OF THIS, I'M SURE SOME OF YOU WENT THROUGH THIS AND SAID SIXTEEN HUNDRED PLUS FIVE, FIFTY FIVE HUNDRED PLUS 400.

AND SO I CAN SEE I KNOW WHERE YOUR BRAINS GONE.

AND I'VE AT LEAST IT TOOK ME A COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT NOW I KNOW WHERE IT'S AT.

SO 20, YOU'RE AT MORE UNITS THAN WHAT'S ALLOCATED IN HERE, AND THAT'S THAT'S FINE.

THEY STILL CAN'T EXCEED WHAT'S WHAT THE MAXIMUM IS ALLOWED ON THE SITE.

THIS JUST GIVES THAT FLEXIBILITY WITHIN THOSE DIFFERENT CHARACTER AREAS TO BUILD THEM, BUT THEY CAN NEVER EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT THAT'S THAT IS ENTITLED ON THIS PROPERTY.

[00:20:08]

OK, NEXT ONE'S GOING THROUGH SECTION TWO G.

ONE C. URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS FROM EXCHANGE PARKWAY CHARACTER AS YOU READ THROUGH THAT LANGUAGE AND [INAUDIBLE] OUT UNDERLINE WITH THIS HAD WITH SOME LANGUAGE SAYING THAT IF YOU BUILD URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS, THEY HAVE TO BE A MINIMUM HEIGHT AND THEY HAVE TO BE INTEGRATED INTO THE BUILDING.

ALL THESE STANDARDS WERE BEING REQUIRED ON THIS SITE WITH THEM BEING REMOVED, AS SHOWN IN THE PREVIOUS TABLE. NONE OF THAT APPLIES ANY MORE SO THAT SECTIONS BEING STRICKEN.

SECTION THREE D SUPPOSEDLY REFERENCES TO TOLLWAY WEST CHARACTER, WHICH WAS CHANGED ONLY TO AREAS WITH PRIVATE STREETS.

SO WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE IS SECTION THREE D BASICALLY SAYS THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN ALLIANCE PRIVATE STREETS BEING MAINTAINED AND HAS TO BE DEVELOPED WITH PRIVATE STREETS, BUT TWO DIFFERENT, TWO CHARACTER AREAS.

BOTH RIDGEVIEW, I MEAN, BOTH THE EXCHANGE CORRIDOR AND THE TOLLWAY EAST CHARACTERS DON'T HAVE ANY PRIVATE STREETS ANYWHERE PROPOSED ON THEM ANYWAYS, SO THEY'RE THE LANGUAGE HERE IS JUST REMOVING THOSE FROM HAVING TO BE MAINTAINED.

HONESTLY, THIS COULD HAVE COULD HAVE WENT IN HERE OR NOT WENT IN HERE.

I THINK WHEN IT'S LOOKED PART AND PART WITH THE THE STREET MAP THAT SHOWS THAT THERE'S NO PRIVATE STREETS THERE ANYWAYS, WE KNOW THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO MAINTAIN PRIVATE STREETS. THIS WAS JUST AN OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAN THAT UP.

IT HAS REALLY NO EFFECT ON ANYTHING IN THE PLAN OTHER THAN JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE CLARITY. BASIC QUESTION IT'S REALLY NOT SO MUCH RELATED TO WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, BUT ON TOLLWAY EAST, IS THERE ANY INGRESS EGRESS OTHER THAN ON THE FRONTAGE ROAD? I MEAN, WILL YOU BE ABLE TO GO THROUGH LIKE A COLLEGE COLLEGE CAMPUS? BECAUSE THERE'S A HOW? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GET INTO THAT? WHAT'S GOING TO BE CONCEIVABLY BUILT THERE OTHER THAN ON THE SPENDING BRANCH AND THE STATE HIGHWAY 121.

ON THE SOUTH BORDER TO ALLEN ISD STEAM CENTER, WHICH IS THE INTERNAL PROPERTY BOUNDARY? THERE'S NO INGRESS EGRESS THROUGH THERE OBVIOUSLY, THAT'S WHERE THEIR LEARNING CENTER IS.

SO THAT WOULD BE THAT WOULD BE A BOUNDARY.

BUT THAT INGRESS EGRESS FROM VEHICULAR STANDPOINT WILL BE FROM BENDING BRANCH, WHICH IS THE NEW ROAD, YOU KNOW, COLIN COLLEGE, WHICH IS ON THE EAST SIDE OF BENDING BRANCH AND SEEMS ON THE WEST.

SEE THOSE ON THE CONCEPT PLANS.

BUT YES, OK, THAT'S WHERE YOUR INGRESS EGRESS WOULD COME FROM.

SECTION THREE F, THIS WAS TO THE TOLLWAY EAST, WHICH IS THE 10 ACRE PROPERTY ON THE FAR EAST SIDE OF THE OF THIS OF THIS PLAN, THERE WAS AN ASK ON A POTENTIAL DEVELOPER IN THIS PROPERTY TO HAVE AN ASPHALT PARKING LOT SECTION ON HERE.

SO WHAT WE'RE SHOWING HERE IN THIS SECTION IS, YOU'RE SHOWING THE EXACT SECTION THAT'S REQUIRED IN OUR CODE PER ALDC.

SO THE SAME LIME STABILIZERS UPGRADED THAT'S REQUIRED IN OUR CURRENT CODE, YOU'RE SHOWING THE SAME CONCRETE SECTION.

IT WOULD BE REQUIRED IN OUR CODE. SO IN ESSENCE, YOU'RE BUILDING THE SAME PARKING LOT SECTION, BE REQUIRED IN OUR CODE.

THEY'RE JUST GOING TO COME IN WITH A A TWO INCH TOP COURSE ON TOP OF THAT.

SO WE'RE GETTING THE SAME STRENGTH FROM ALL OUR REQUIREMENTS.

IT REALLY IS BEING DONE AS AN FROM AN ESTHETIC STANDPOINT WANTING TO HAVE ASPHALT, AND THAT WAS AN ASK. SO WE'RE OK WITH THAT.

WE'RE GETTING THE SAME STRUCTURE BEING BUILT BENEATH IT.

IT'S JUST GOING TO BE A TWO INCH TOP COURSE, SO.

PARKING LOTS ON THE CLOSEST ONE I CAN THINK OF OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD IS THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF BETHANY AND GREENVILLE.

THAT OFFICE DEVELOPMENT AND THE NEW EXPANSION THAT HAPPENED IN THERE.

I KNOW THERE IS ASPHALT OVERLAY ON PARTS OF THAT PARKING LOT IN THERE.

BUT WHAT WE WANT IT TO DO IS ENSURE THAT THIS IS NOT JUST BEING BUILT WITH ASPHALT, IT'S BEING BUILT THE SAME STANDARD THAT ANY CONCRETE PARKING LOT WOULD HAVE TO BUILD FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION JUST WOUND UP WITH THE ASPHALT ON TOP.

AND SO IF THE ASPHALT HAS TO BE MAINTAINED OVER TIME AS IT WILL, THAT'S FINE AS LONG AS THE SUB GRADE ITSELF IN THAT INTEGRITY STAYS INTACT.

YOU KNOW, CARL ALSO JUST KIND OF WHAT I LEARNED IS ON RDC AND SUCH AND JUST MR. FLANIGAN IS THAT THESE ASPHALT OVERLAYS ARE BECOMING PRETTY COMMON AMONG A LOT OF OUR NEIGHBORING CITIES. PLANO IS DOING A GOOD AMOUNT OF IT AND AND BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT IT, I THOUGHT THE SAME THING.

I MEAN, YOU KNOW, THE FIRST IMPRESSION ABOUT ASPHALT IS OH KNOW, RIGHT? BUT BUT IT'S MUCH BETTER.

[00:25:02]

AND IT'S I MEAN, IT'S THEY'VE IMPROVED UPON IT.

AND SO YOU'RE SEEING A LOT OF CITIES KIND OF TRANSITION TO THAT TYPE OF OVERLAY.

THANK YOU CHRIS. YEAH. OK, THE SECOND PART IS IN THE BOX TO THE RIGHT WAS TO ALLOW SOME ALTERNATE MEANS OF ACCOMPLISHING THE PARKING LOT LANDSCAPING.

SO WHAT WAS PROPOSED WAS TO DO AT GRADE THREE GRADES WITHIN THE PARKING LOT TO ALLOW FOR AGAIN, THEY'RE GOING FOR AN ESTHETIC, YOU KNOW, KIND OF THING HERE ON THIS.

AND SO WE'RE OK WITH EXPLORING THAT AND MET WITH PARKS AND RECREATION ON THIS, PROVIDED THESE THINGS ARE MET AND SO ADEQUATE SUBSURFACE PREPARATION.

SO NOW THEY'RE DOING ALL THE THINGS IN THE IMAGE TO THE LEFT, SHOWING THE SUBGROUP PREP FOR THE FOR THE PAVEMENT, THINGS LIKE THAT.

BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE SUBSURFACE PREP ALLOWS A SPACE FOR THE ROOTS TO EXPAND AND NOT COMPETE WITH THE CONCRETE THINGS LIKE THAT TO COMPUTE THE INTEGRITY OF THE CONCRETE. THE TRUE GREATS OBVIOUSLY HAVE TO BE TRAFFIC RATED IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE A GRADE, AND THEN THIS WAS AN ASK AND THE APPLICANT WANTED TO DO.

THIS WAS TO PROVIDE TREES AT SIX EXCALIBUR INCHES AS OPPOSED TO WHAT'S REQUIRED, WHICH IS THREE. SO IT PROVIDES A LARGER TREE AND WITHOUT DOING THE AREA OF A TREE TO GET OUT THE POWER SQUARED SIX IS OBVIOUSLY MORE THAN TWICE WITH A THREE INCH TREE IS RIGHT, AND SO YOU'RE GETTING A SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER TREE THAT'S BEING SHOWN UP IN THERE AS FAR AS THE MATURE TREE. OK, THE NEXT PART, SECTION 4.A.2 THIS MINOR CHANGE CLARIFIES THAT ONE OR MORE PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATIONS CAN BE USED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS AT ALDC, AND ADDITIONALLY, DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS CAN BE USED TO MEET THAT SAME REQUIREMENT.

SO WHAT THE CITY HAS WITH THE CITY'S MAIN GOAL IS TO ENSURE THAT ALL OPEN SPACES, COMMON AREAS ARE PERPETUALLY MAINTAINED, RIGHT? AND WE HAVE SOMEBODY IF SOMETHING DOESN'T HAPPEN, WE HAVE SOMEBODY TO GO TO AND SAY, THIS NEEDS TO BE MAINTAINED, RIGHT? AND THE PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION IS ONE OF THOSE SOLUTIONS.

BUT WE EXPLORED WITH KEVIN, AND HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME WRITING.

THE LANGUAGE THAT SHOWS UP IN THERE IS THAT THERE ARE OTHER INSTRUMENTS THAT CAN ACCOMPLISH THAT SAME GOAL AND ENSURE THE CITY IS PROTECTED AND THE CITY HAS THE SAME THINGS IN PLACE WITHOUT THEM HAVING TO GO THROUGH THE TROUBLE OF ESTABLISHING A POA, ADOPTING CC AS THE CONDITIONS, GOVERNANCE AND RESTRICTIONS.

WE CAN STILL WRITE THOSE SAME CAVEATS INTO AGREEMENTS OR OTHER INSTRUMENTS THAT ALLOW THE CITY THE ABILITY TO ENFORCE THAT.

SO IF SOMETHING HAPPENS, YOU KNOW, PROPERTY CAN'T CHANGE HANDS WITHOUT US HAVING A SAY AND IN COMMON AREAS, AND WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO ENFORCE, YOU KNOW, THE MAINTENANCE OF THOSE THINGS. SO THIS WAS THIS WAS AN ASK FROM THE APPLICANT.

THEY'RE NOT SURE IF THEY WANT TO GO DOWN THIS ROUTE OR NOT.

THEY WANT TO HAVE THAT OPTION IN THE FUTURE.

BUT THERE ARE TWO SEPARATE PROPERTIES ON THE EAST SIDE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT THAT ARE SMALLER PIECES THAT MAY LEND THEMSELVES TO NOT HAVING TO GO THROUGH THE WHOLE MESS OF DOING A POA.

THE WEST SIDE OF EXCHANGE, WHICH IS A [INAUDIBLE] PROPERTY, IT'S VERY LIKELY THAT IT'S GOING TO BE A POA THAT'S GOING TO MANAGE ALL OF THAT.

THAT WOULD MAKE SENSE WHILE IT WAS CONTIGUOUS PIECES.

BUT THE SMALLER PIECES THAT MAY GO UNDER SEPARATE OWNERSHIP, IT MAY NOT BE WORTH IT TO GO THROUGH ALL THE TROUBLE TO SET UP A POHA FOR A, YOU KNOW, A NINE ACRE PIECE OR 10 ACRE PIECE. SO THAT'S THAT'S WHAT THIS GIVES THE OPTION FOR, AND THAT'S ALL THAT LANGUAGE MEANS. AND IF WE HAVE QUESTIONS ON THIS, WE ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHEN KEVIN COMES TO THE CITY COUNCIL AND HE AUTHORED THAT SO HE CAN GET IT RIGHT.

I UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE NONCONTIGUOUS AND I GET IT.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT LIKE THE FARM WHERE WE HAVE A CCAR IN PLACE AND YOU KNOW, THAT'S MANAGING AND THERE'S A DECLARATION AND THE CITY HAS RECOURSE RIGHT TO YOUR POINT.

YOU KNOW, IF SOMETHING IS AMISS OR SOMETHING'S NOT COMMON AREAS AREN'T TAKEN CARE OF, YOU KNOW, WE CAN. WE AS A CITY COULD PUT THE HAMMER DOWN ON THEM.

AND I GET IT. YOU KNOW WHERE THE NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES IS, IS AND QUITE FRANKLY, I GET IT ON TOLLWAY EAST BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU, YOU GOT RAY WASHBURNE OVER THERE AND HE'S, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY DONE A LOT OF DEVELOPMENTS AND HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING AND HE'S GOING TO MAKE SURE HE TAKES CARE OF THAT.

I GUESS THE A LITTLE BIT OF A I GUESS DISCONNECT I HAVE AND, YOU KNOW, WITH THE PLUS SUITES AND ACROSS THE ROAD AND I HAD THIS, YOU KNOW, JUST TO BE FRANK, I HAD THIS CONVERSATION WITH DAVID AND MICHAEL ABOUT HOW WE CAN SEE THAT THAT EXCHANGE PARKWAY PIECE WERE PLUSH SUITES IS GOING TO HAVE, YOU KNOW, PERHAPS POTENTIALLY THREE DIFFERENT PROPERTY OWNERS THERE.

AND WHY LET'S JUST SAY I GET TOLLWAY EAST, OK, I WANT TO REPEAT THAT.

I UNDERSTAND, YOU KNOW, THE NONCONTIGUOUS PIECE, BUT THAT PIECE TO ME IS ONE, ARE YOU GOING TO WHAT ARE GOING TO BE THE MEDIAN CUTS? WHAT IS THE ACCESS TO THAT? BECAUSE I WOULD ARGUE THAT THAT AREA AND THAT DEVELOPMENT OVER THERE IS GOING TO BENEFIT

[00:30:01]

TREMENDOUSLY FROM THE DEVELOPMENT THAT NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES IS BUILDING ACROSS THE ROAD. SO WITH THAT IN MIND, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU DO A CCAR, YOU YOU HAVE, YOU KNOW, YOU ASSIGN PERCENTAGES OF COMMON AREAS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO, YOU KNOW, SOMEBODY SAYS, WELL, IT'S LIKE AN HOA. EVERY RESIDENT HAS A CERTAIN PORTION.

SO GREEN SPACE, PRIVATE ROADS, I MEAN, GRANTED, THERE'S NO PRIVATE STREET ON THE ON THE ON THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY PIECE.

BUT I GUESS WHERE I'M GOING WITH THIS IS, IS IT AT LEAST ENTERTAIN A POA AND A CC&R THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY PIECE THE PLUS, BECAUSE MY CONCERN IS, YOU KNOW, SURE, WE WE AS COUNCIL MEMBERS, WE CAN SAY, OK, WELL, THAT'S FINE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? BUT BUT YOU KNOW, WE WE'RE NEGLECTING OUR RESPONSIBILITY IF WE'RE NOT LOOKING 10 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD AND AND YOU KNOW, THERE'S A NEW OWNER THERE, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU DRIVE BY EXCHANGE PARKWAY AND AND YOU KNOW, THINGS ARE GOING TO HELL, PARDON MY FRENCH.

BUT SO I GUESS MY ASK IS, IS THERE A WAY LET'S KEEP TOLLWAY EAST SEPARATE? BUT IS THERE A WAY TO FOLD IN THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY AS ONE CC&R? ISN'T IT THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY? AND SO THAT THAT COULD BE THAT COULD BE ANSWERED BY THE APPLICANT? I'M GOING TO SAY THAT THOSE STANDARDS THAT YOU'RE SAYING.

YEAH, JUST JUST BECAUSE A CC&R IS ESTABLISHED DOESN'T ENSURE THAT THE QUALITY IS THE QUALITY IS NOT MAINTAINED, RIGHT, SO THE CC&R'S DON'T ENSURE THE QUALITY IS MAINTAINED, AN INSTRUMENT THAT WE TALK ABOUT IN THIS STANDARD WOULD HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME EFFECT AS CC&R'S. AS FAR AS ENSURING INTEGRITY AND QUALITY IN THE CITY WOULD HAVE ALL THE SAME KIND OF HAMMER TO COME IN ON, ANY OF THOSE ENSURE THAT QUALITY IS MAINTAINED OVER TIME AND THE SAME RECOURSE AND ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU MENTIONED.

SO NOW ENSURE THE QUALITY THAT HAPPENS THERE.

SO I DON'T FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE FROM THAT STANDPOINT.

BUT WE DID TALK ABOUT, THOUGH, TO BE TO BE FAIR, WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT IS IF THE FOLKS ON THE WEST SIDE AND THE LARGER PIECE OF PROPERTY, IT'S SHOWN YOUR FOLLOWED BY THE YELLOW STAR. BUT THAT LARGER PIECE OF PROPERTY, IF THEY WANTED TO HAVE ABOVE AND BEYOND KIND OF THINGS THAT THEY WANTED TO MAINTAIN THAT WE DON'T EVEN GET TO REGULATE RIGHT THINGS LIKE SOME ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS, YOU KNOW, THINGS LIKE THAT, RIGHT? I GUESS THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT THEY CONSIDER AND THEY HAVE BEEN OPEN AND SAID, YES, WE'RE STILL WE WANTED THIS OPTION.

THEY'RE NOT SOLD ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ON WHETHER OR NOT THIS DOESN'T GET FOLDED INTO THE OVERALL ONE OR IT BECOMES ITS OWN.

BUT THAT MIGHT GIVE THEM THE OPTION TO REGULATE OTHER THINGS BY MAKING IT ONE POA.

OUR STANDPOINT, SOME OF THOSE THINGS THAT THEY REGULATE.

I DON'T HAVE A DOG IN THAT HUNT BECAUSE I DON'T GET TO REGULATE THEM ANYWAYS.

SO IF THEY WANT TO DO THAT, THAT'S ON THEM.

I WANT TO ENSURE THAT THINGS THAT I GET TO REGULATE ARE GOING TO BE HELD TO THE SAME QUALITY REGARDLESS OF IT'S A POA OR IF IT'S SOME OTHER INSTRUMENT.

AND I THINK THAT WHAT WE HAVE WRITTEN IN HERE ALLOWS US TO DO THAT.

BUT THOSE OTHER ITEMS THAT'S THAT'S ON THE APPLICANT, IF THEY WANT TO DO THE ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR THE OVERALL PROPERTY, THINGS THAT WE DON'T, YOU KNOW, ESTHETICS THAT WE DON'T TALK ABOUT AND TALK, YOU KNOW, THE TYPES OF LIGHT FIXTURES AND THE TYPES OF STANDARD THINGS LIKE THAT THAT THEY WOULD GET INTO.

BUT THAT, YEAH, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, CHRIS MAKES A VALID POINT AND I'M GOING TO THROW THE MAYOR UNDER THE BUS. HE'S FOND OF REMINDING US THAT THE PREVIOUS COUNCILS HAVE MADE CERTAIN DECISIONS FOR THIS CITY WITH IDEAS OF MINE WHERE WE'RE GOING AS A CITY. PREVIOUS COUNCIL WAS VERY CLEAR AND REQUIRING HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATIONS AND PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATIONS FOR NEW DEVELOPMENTS FOR A REASON.

YOU KNOW, THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE THAT IS FOOLPROOF, BUT REQUIRING A POA AND MAINTAINING THAT REQUIREMENT SEEMS TO FIT THE STANDARD THAT WAS ALREADY SET IN PREVIOUS YEARS. AND IN ALL LIKELIHOOD, A POA IS MORE LIKELY TO ENFORCE UPKEEP ON A PROPERTY THAN A SINGLE OWNER.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF PROPERTIES THAT ARE SINGLE OWNER AND NOT SUBJECT TO POA ON THE EAST SIDE OF TOWN THAT YOU CAN DRIVE BY ALL DAY LONG AND SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE VERSUS HOMES AND PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATIONS ANYWHERE AND SIT IN THE CITY THAT ARE KEPT UP.

SO WHY? WHAT'S THE INCENTIVE FOR US AS A COUNCIL TO GIVE THEM A WAY OUT OF THAT REQUIREMENT? AND SO I DON'T GET IT, MARK AND I KIND OF ADDRESS SOME OF THIS.

THE WHOLE CONCEPT? WELL, LET'S FIRST, LET'S START WITH ALDC SECTION EIGHT 20, WHICH IS THE PROVISION THAT PRIMARILY DEALS WITH RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES AS PART OF OUR SUBDIVISION REGULATIONS THAT DEALS WITH THAT ESTABLISHES THE REQUIREMENTS FOR HOA'S WHEN YOU HAVE A SUBDIVISION, PRIMARILY RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION, THAT HAS COMMON AREAS THAT NEED TO BE PERPETUALLY

[00:35:03]

MAINTAINED. FRANKLY, THERE IS NOTHING IN THE ALDC RIGHT NOW THAT PROVIDES A SIMILAR KIND OF CONCEPT FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENTS AND THE COMMON USE THAT'S TYPICALLY HANDLED THROUGH CCR'S THROUGH A NONRESIDENTIAL DEVELOPER THAT ESTABLISHES THE THINGS LIKE MUTUAL ACCESS EASEMENTS, MUTUAL PARKING EASEMENTS AND THEN THE ALLOCATION OF THOSE COSTS WITH USUALLY TYPICALLY IT'S GOING TO BE IF THEY DON'T SET UP A PROPERTY OWNER ASSOCIATION, IT'S TYPICALLY GOING TO BE ONE OF THE THE OWNERS OF ONE OF THE PROPERTIES THAT BENEFITS FROM THOSE COMMON AREAS.

THE ALLOCATION IS THEN END.

AND THEN ONE OF THOSE PROPERTY OWNERS, TYPICALLY THE ANCHOR IN MANY INSTANCES, IS THE ONE THAT IS IN CHARGE OF MAKING SURE IT'S MAINTAINED AND THEN DOING THE COLLECTIONS FROM EVERYBODY ELSE FOR THEIR FAIR SHARE OF THE MAINTENANCE.

THAT'S ESSENTIALLY WHAT YOU KNOW IN DRAFTING THIS LANGUAGE IS CONCEPTUALLY WHAT I WAS TRYING TO ALLOWING TO BE SET UP HERE BECAUSE FRANKLY, WE DON'T LIKE I SAID, WE DON'T HAVE THAT IN THE ALDC RIGHT NOW.

WE JUST KIND OF RUN WITH IT AS BEST WE CAN FOR NONRESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES.

WHEN WE'RE REVIEWING SEEKERS FOR WHATEVER TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT WE TYPICALLY DON'T GET INTO THE ALLOCATION OF THOSE RESPONSIBILITIES AMONGST THE VARIOUS PROPERTY OWNERS, WE LEAVE THAT UP TO THE DEVELOPER DECIDE WHO'S GOING TO BEAR THE BURDEN OF PAYING FOR THAT ONGOING MAINTENANCE.

AND THEN THAT'S JUST UP TO THE DEVELOPER TO MARKET THIS PROPERTY.

YOU KNOW HOW HE'S GOING TO DEVELOP IT.

SO IF HE HAPPENS TO FAVOR A PARTICULAR OWNER OF THOSE THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE AND BENEFITING? THAT'S UP TO THE DEVELOPER.

WE WE LOOK AT IT PRIMARILY JUST TO MAKE SURE ONE IS THEY'RE GOING TO BE THE ABILITY TO DO ASSESSMENTS OR SOME COST RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THERE'S SOMEBODY TO GO TO TO PICK UP THOSE MONIES TO CONTINUE TO PAY FOR THAT MAINTENANCE.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHY. AND THEN SECONDLY, AND THAT'S AGAIN, PART OF THE LANGUAGE IN THIS IN THIS THIS LANGUAGE IS TO MAKE SURE THE CITY IS KIND OF A UNSIGNED THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY WITH THE ABILITY TO ENFORCE THOSE PROVISIONS IF THE PARTY RESPONSIBLE OTHERWISE FOR ENFORCING IT, WHETHER IT BE AN HOA OR AN ANCHOR PROPERTY OWNER, IF THEY FAIL IN THEIR DUTIES AND THE CITY CAN STEP IN AND FORCE THEM TO DO THEIR DUTIES, OR, IN MANY INSTANCES, GO ACTUALLY DO THE ACTUAL DIRECT ASSESSMENT.

I TRY TO AVOID PUTTING THE CITY IN THAT POSITION WITH THE LANGUAGE THAT WE REVIEW, BUT SOMETIMES THAT, YOU KNOW, WE MAY HAVE HAVING TO DO THAT.

AND AGAIN, THIS IS FROM 35 YEARS OF ME SEEING THE KIND OF THINGS YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT OF OLD SUBDIVISIONS, WITH COMMON AREAS, WITH LITTLE POCKET PARKS THAT WERE PRIVATE GOING AND UNMAINTAINED BECAUSE IN 30 YEARS AGO, 40 YEARS AGO, CITIES WEREN'T DOING THIS KIND OF THING. SO THAT'S HOW THIS IS PRIMARILY SET UP.

NOTE THAT THE LANGUAGE ALSO IS THE CITY MANAGER MAY APPROVE THESE.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THIS IS NOT A DEVELOPER OPTION THAT THEY CAN EXERCISE.

THIS STILL HAS TO BE IT BASICALLY A CITY MANAGER AUTHORIZATION TO CONSIDER AND APPROVE SUCH AN OPTION.

SO. SO, YOU KNOW, DEPENDING ON HOW THE DEVELOPER PROPOSES IT, WE MAY DECIDE NOT TO DO IT.

AND IT JUST DEPENDS ON WHAT CITY MANAGER WANTS TO DO ULTIMATELY AFTER CONSULTING WITH STAFF. SO IT'S NOT AN AUTOMATIC OUT OR ALTERNATIVE FOR THE DEVELOPER, BUT AS MARK SAID, IT WAS, WE JUST WANT TO BUILD SOMETHING INTO IT TO GIVE THE OPTION.

SO IF WE'VE GOT THE RIGHT KIND OF CIRCUMSTANCE AND WE SET IT UP CORRECTLY, THE WHOLE ADMINISTRATIVE MECHANISM OF HAVING TO SET UP AN HOA, WE OR POA WE COULD AVOID IN A LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCE, THAT'S REALLY WHAT ELSE.

AND I KNOW THAT'S A LOT OF WORDS, A LOT OF EXPLANATION TO GET US WHERE YOU WANT.

I GUESS TO ME, WHEN YOU, YOU KNOW, NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTY IS A BIG COMPANY, BIG, REPUTABLE NATIONAL COMPANY, I CAN'T IMAGINE THIS IS THEIR FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH THIS.

I'M NOT ASKING OR TELLING OR ANYTHING.

I'M JUST SUGGESTING THAT GRANTED, I MEAN, SOMEBODY THAT'S ON OVER ON TOLLWAY WEST IS NOT GOING TO WANT TO PAY, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE ALLOCATED HERE FOR THE HOTEL.

THEY DON'T, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE, RIGHT? I MEAN, THAT'S THAT'S NONSENSE, RIGHT? BUT BUT AT THE SAME TIME, JUST AS ALL CC&R'S ARE.

I MEAN, I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF CC&R'S, BUT I MEAN, WE'RE LEARNING THIS FROM THE DEVELOPMENT. EACH TRACT OF LAND HAS THEIR PERCENTAGE SHARE OF WHAT OF WHAT COMMON AREAS MIGHT BE OR WHAT PRIVATE ROADS MIGHT BE.

AND I KNOW THIS THAT SIDE OF THE ROAD DOESN'T HAVE ANY PRIVATE ROADS.

BUT I GUESS I WOULD JUST ASK AND CITY MANAGER ELLWANGER IS THAT AND TALK TO NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES, MR.

[00:40:01]

HICKS, ABOUT JUST THAT LITTLE SLIVER OF LAND THAT NINE ACRES AND HOW YOU CAN MAYBE FOLD THAT IN AS PART OF A CC&R THAT THAT, YOU KNOW, I FEEL I WOULD FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE THAT WE AS A CITY HAVE, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A [INAUDIBLE].

WE HAVE SOME KIND OF RECOURSE, I GUESS, AND AND AND I'LL JUST LEAVE IT AT THAT.

I MEAN, I WOULD JUST ASK THAT YOU AT LEAST EXPLORE IT AND COUNCIL MEMBER THAT ISN'T TO SAY THIS. WHAT THE DOCUMENT THAT WE WOULDN'T BE LOOKING AT WOULDN'T CREATE NECESSARILY A TYPE OF CC&R'S FOR BECAUSE BASICALLY IT DOES.

IT JUST DOESN'T REQUIRE THE FORMAL MECHANISM OF CREATING AN HOA OR POA, WHICH WE DO, WHICH ALDC SECTION EIGHT 20 REQUIRES.

THAT'S SO IT WILL PROBABLY VERY SIMILAR, AT LEAST IN THE FINANCIAL MECHANISM, I SUSPECT.

OKAY.

OK, 4H.2.

WE HAVE PHASING OUT, WE HAVE ONE BEDROOM MINIMUMS, RIGHT? SIXTY FIVE PERCENT OF ALL URBAN RESIDENTIAL UNITS HAVE TO BE ONE BEDROOM.

BUT IF YOU READ THROUGH THAT SECTION, ALL THE WE DON'T TRACK IT EVERY SINGLE STEP OF THE WAY. WE HAVE PHASES WHERE WE PLAY KIND OF CATCH UP AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE IN COMPLIANCE WITH 65 PERCENT AND THOSE GO IN LINE WITH THE PHASING IT WAS IN THAT PRIOR TABLE. SO WHAT THIS DOES IS THAT MAKES THOSE NUMBERS MATCH SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE PRIOR PHASING. SO EACH PHASE WILL BE 10 PERCENT, IS THAT CORRECT? CORRECT. OK.

OK, SO NEXT ONE, SO SIGNAGE IS BEING PROPOSED ON TOLL WAY EAST HIGH HIGHLIGHTED YELLOW STAR SO THAT THEY'RE WANTING TO ADD IN.

THE REQUEST WAS TO ADD 460 SQUARE FEET OF SIGNAGE FOR A NEW FREESTANDING SIGN, LED SIGN.

SO THE DISCUSSION I HAD WITH THEM AND OUR PRE-DEVELOPMENT MEETINGS WAS, OK, IF WE'RE GOING TO CONTEMPLATE THAT, YOU HAVE TO GO AND TAKE THAT AMOUNT OF SIGNAGE, SQUARE FOOTAGE OFF THE TABLE THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY ENTITLED, SO YOU'RE GETTING SOMETHING, BUT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BE GIVING BACK THE EQUAL AMOUNT.

AND SO WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS THEY'RE REMOVING FIVE HUNDRED AND FORTY SQUARE FEET OF SIGNAGE FROM TWO MULTITENANT SIGNS AND ONE DISTRICT SIGN THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY ENTITLED.

SO THEY'RE TAKING THAT OFF, AND THAT'S PART OF ALL THE STRIKE OUT ON THEIR LINE.

IT WAS IN YOUR IN YOUR PACKETS AND ADDING THE ADDITIONAL SIGN FOR IT.

SO THE NET NET IS ACTUALLY A LOST IN SQUARE FOOTAGE OF SIGNAGE BY ADDING THIS LARGER SIGN. BUT IT DOES TAKE IT OFF THE TABLE.

SO THAT WAS KIND OF THE, I GUESS, THE BARTER FROM STAFF STANDPOINT TO PRESENT THE COUNCIL TO TRY TO MAKE IT AS AS FAIR AS POSSIBLE.

THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE DIGITAL LED SIGN, THIS DIGITAL LED SIGN.

AND THIS IS SHOWING THE SHOWING 440 SQUARE FEET PLUS TO FOUR FEET OF THE ICEHOUSE LOGO ON THE SIGN. AND THEN THERE'S A LINE THAT A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA SPACE JUST IN CASE TO GET TO 460 SQUARE FEET.

THAT'S WHAT'S BEING SHOWN ON HERE NOW.

HOW TALL WILL THAT SIGN BE? SO THAT SIGN IS ALLOWED TO GO TO 60 FEET AND THE UP OR DOWN.

SHE HAD 60 FEET FROM THE BAINE TRAVELING.

YEAH. YEAH.

BACK IN 60 FEET FROM THE HEIGHT OF THE MAIN, UP FROM THE MAIN TRAVEL LANES.

PERPENDICULAR, SO THAT'S THE THE HEIGHT OF THAT SIGN, I THINK THE I WANT TO SAY THE CLOSEST SIGN TO THAT HEIGHT THAT'S RECENT WAS DOWN THE ROAD AT THE HARLEY-DAVIDSON.

I BELIEVE THAT'S IT. I THINK IT'S FIFTY FIVE FEET.

IF I HAD A JAGUAR, I HAD TO LOOK AT THE PDA AGAIN.

BUT IT'S BUT THAT'S NOT A DIGITAL SIGN.

IT IS NOT. THAT IS A STATIC SIGN.

YES. CORRECT.

OK, SO THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS, SOME NEW SIGN TYPES THAT WERE JUST NOT CONTEMPLATED, SO THEY'RE WANTING TO DO THIS ARCH ENTRY RANCH STYLE ENTRY SIGN HAS THE CLEARANCE FOR OBVIOUSLY EMERGENCY SERVICE VEHICLES TO GET THROUGH THERE, BUT IT ALLOWS FOR ALLOWS FOR A SMALL LOGO AND RANCH ENTRY SIGN.

I THINK FOLKS CAN ENVISION WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE.

BUT IT WASN'T CONTEMPLATED IN THE ORDINANCE, SO NOW IT'S CODIFIED IN THERE.

AND THEN THEY JUST WANTED TO BE CLEAR ON THE MONUMENT SIGNS.

THEY'RE ALLOWED MONUMENT SIGNS ANYWAYS AND HERE, BUT THEY WANT IT TO BE CLEAR ON THE MONUMENT SIGNS ARE BEING PROPOSED ON THIS SITE AND THIS IS JUST A SHOWING OF WHAT WHAT'S BEING PROPOSED THERE. AND THIS ISN'T KEEPING WITH ANY TYPICAL MONUMENTS ON WE WOULD SEE FOR THIS SIZE PROPERTY.

THIS IS NOT BIGGER THAN ANYTHING.

AND FINALLY, APPENDIX THREE, THIS IS A LITTLE BIT OF CLEANUP.

[00:45:04]

BUT IF AN AMENITY CENTER IS NOT VERTICALLY INTEGRATED INTO ANY OF THE URBAN RESIDENTIAL USES, IT ALLOWS IT TO BE A STANDALONE USE WITHIN THE RIGID EXCHANGE AREA, WHICH IS THE BASE OF THE WHOLE WEST SIDE OF THE WEST, SIDE OF EXCHANGE, SOUTH SIDE OF THAT PROPERTY.

THE PRIMARY RESIDENTIAL UNITS WILL BE.

AND THAT ARE, THAT CONCLUDES MY PART OF THE PRESENTATION, I KNOW THE APPLICANT HAS A FEW SLIDES OF A PRESENTATION AS WELL AND THE MR. TULY FROM NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES THIS YEAR AS WELL.

TO SPEAK TO IT WHEN WHEN WE DID THE THE AVENUE AND THE FARM AND AND EVERY BACK IN THE DAY, EVERYBODY WAS TALKING ABOUT, OH, YOU KNOW, RIDGEVIEW HAS GOT TO LOOK NICE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHERE ALL THE RESIDENTIAL HOA'S ARE.

AND I, YOU RECALL THIS MARK, AS I SAID, WELL, WHAT ABOUT ALMA? YOU KNOW, I MEAN, YOU GOT THE FARM ON ONE SIDE AND LET'S NOT HAVE THE BACK OF BUILDINGS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET SO THAT, YOU KNOW, IT'S AN EYESORE IF YOU'RE OVER AT THE FARM OR IF THE FARM DID SOMETHING THAT UGLY BUDDING UP AND AND WHEN STILLWATER CAPITAL CAME AND AND THEY CAME WITH THEIR PROPOSAL JUST NOT TOO LONG AGO, WE HAD THE SAME CONVERSATION AND BILLINGSLEY WAS WORRIED ABOUT THE THE WAREHOUSES, AND I SAID, WELL, I'M, YOU KNOW, CALL ME WEIRD.

I'M A LITTLE BIT OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE, BUT I'M SYMMETRICAL, YOU KNOW, AND I WANT, YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT A 15 STORY BUILDING ON ONE SIDE AND A BUNCH OF ONE STORY BUILDINGS ON THE OTHER, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE IF YOU DRIVE DOWN EXCHANGE, YOU KNOW, IT'S YOU GOT A GOLF COURSE, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A OF REC CENTER.

THAT'S I WOULD GUESS IT'S GOING TO BE STATE OF THE ART.

AND WE ALL KNOW THAT THAT'S HOW WE ROLL HERE AND.

AND YOU'VE GOT TREES AND FORESTS.

I GUESS I'D LIKE TO ASK DAVID THIS QUESTION BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK AT THE CONCEPT PLANT, I WANT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I KNOW THE PLUSH SUITES, APARTMENTS COMING UP, AND IT'S A 10 STORY ON THE ONE SIDE, IF YOU'RE ON THE OTHER SIDE AND YOU'RE PUT IN THE URBAN RESIDENTIAL END. HOW ARE WE SETTING THAT BACK? SO IT'S A IT'S A GOOD LOOK.

I MEAN, I WOULD I WOULD BE I'D BE TROUBLED IF IF ON THE OTHER SIDE, BUTTING UP AGAINST EXCHANGE WAS A THREE STORY STRUCTURED PARKING GARAGE, RIGHT, THAT EVERYBODY LOOKED AT FROM ACROSS THE ROAD.

AND I'M NOT SUGGESTING THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING.

BUT DAVID, WHEN YOU COME UP, CAN YOU JUST SHARE WITH ME KIND OF WHAT'S ALONG THAT EXCHANGE PARKWAY ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF PLUSH SUITES? SO JUST TO GIVE ME A SENSE OF COMFORT THAT THERE'S, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SOME SYMMETRY AND BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT TO ME AGAIN, I MEAN, WEIRD, BUT I'D LIKE TO, YOU KNOW, WE WE ARE A PRIDEFUL CITY AND THAT WE HAVE GREAT CHARACTER IN THE STREETS AND THEY ALL LOOK NICE. AND I JUST PARKING GARAGES ALONG 75 OR LIKE LEGACY WEST, IT'S ALONG THE TOLLWAY OR SOMETHING OR PARKING GARAGE IS A LONG ONE TWENTY ONE.

I CAN DEAL WITH THAT BECAUSE JUST LIKE WATTERS CREEK, YOU KNOW, WE GOT THE CONVENTION CENTER. I'M FINE WITH THAT.

BUT ON INTERIOR ROADS, IT BUGS ME A BIT AND I JUST WANTED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WHAT WAS BECAUSE I LOOK AT THE CONCEPT PLAN AND I'M NOT SURE IT'S REALLY CLEAR THAT ONE THAT NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES PUT TOGETHER.

SO I'LL LEAVE IT AT THAT.

AND PERHAPS DAVID, WHEN YOU SPEAK, YOU CAN SPEAK TO WHAT'S WHAT YOU GOT PLANNED ALONG EXCHANGE GOING, GOING FROM RIDGE VIEW TO THE 121 CORRIDOR.

THANKS. SO DAVID'S GOING TO GO AHEAD.

YOU COME UP. ALL RIGHT, YEAH.

OK, DAVID, IF YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND COME FORWARD AND IF YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND TRY TO ADDRESS POA'S, CC&R'S AND ALL THAT OTHER GOOD STUFF THAT WAS DISCUSSED EARLIER JUST TO MAYBE HELP EVERYBODY UNDERSTAND THAT SITUATION.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR, CITY MANAGER, COUNCILMAN.

I'M DAVID HICKS 401 WOOD LAKE DRIVE ALLEN, TEXAS? FIRST OF ALL, I'D LIKE TO CONGRATULATE CHIEF BOYD.

I THINK HE MAY HAVE LEFT, BUT FOR THE TV AUDIENCE.

YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S DONE FOR THIS CITY.

HE'S BEEN FANTASTIC.

AND HAVING HAD ELDERLY PARENTS WHO LIVE WITH US DURING THE LAST FIVE YEARS OF THEIR LIFE, THE NUMBER OF TIMES THAT THE FIREMEN CAME TO OUR HOUSE, WHEN MY MOM WOULD FALL, MY DAD WOULD FALL OR THERE WAS SOMETHING HAPPENED.

THEY WERE VERY MUCH A PART OF OUR LIFE.

AND YOU KNOW, I RECENTLY LEARNED FROM THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WHEN WE TOURED THE FIRE STATION THAT THEY DO THAT ON A DAILY BASIS, AND I DON'T THINK THAT WE REALIZE THAT.

SO I JUST WANT TO SAY THANKS TO THOSE GUYS.

MARK, THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT PRESENTATION.

LET ME JUST MAYBE ADDRESS YOUR COMMENT, CHRIS, BEFORE I GET INTO MY OTHER THOUGHTS.

[00:50:01]

YOU KNOW, 2022 MARKS THE 30 30TH YEAR SINCE WE STARTED TO INCREASE, AND THIS IS THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE TWIN CREEKS DEVELOPMENT ALONG 121.

SO WE'VE MADE MISTAKES ALONG THE WAY.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS WE ALWAYS DO AS THE MASTER DEVELOPER LAND SELLER IS HANDPICK THOSE DEVELOPERS WHO COME IN TO DO THE VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT AND THE COMPANIES.

AND WE OFTENTIMES PUT RESTRICTIONS IN OUR CONTRACTS TO APPROVE THINGS AND IN SOME CASES, LIKE BUILDING MATERIALS, THE CITY CAN'T NECESSARILY APPROVE.

SO WE PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE THINGS.

OFTENTIMES, POST CLOSING TO MAKE SURE THAT NOBODY BUILDS SOMETHING ON ONE FIVE ACRE PIECE THAT'S GOING TO DEVALUE THE PROPERTY VALUES SOMEWHERE ELSE.

HERE, YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT SOME REAL MARKETING CORRIDORS.

ONE, OF COURSE, THE OBVIOUS ONE IS STATE HIGHWAY 121.

AND I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO SEE GREAT FRONT DOORS ALONG 121 AS YOU COME IN AND THEN ENTER INTO OUR MAIN ENTRANCE, WHERE THE REASON WE CALL THIS ALLEN GATEWAY IS THAT EXCHANGE PARKWAY IS THE GATEWAY INTO ALLEN AND THE GATEWAY INTO TWIN CREEKS.

EXCHANGE PARKWAY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US, AND WHEN THAT WAS BUILT, WE, YOU KNOW, MADE SURE THAT THERE WERE WIDE MEDIANS AND IT WAS A NICE LOOKING BOULEVARD COMING IN.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE MASTER PLAN, ESSENTIALLY WHAT? WE'VE GOT SOME VERTICALITY THERE WHERE YOU'RE COMING UP, PARTICULARLY ON THE NORTHERN PIECE, ABOUT 11 TO 12 FEET FROM EXCHANGE PARKWAY AS YOU GO UP.

AND I THINK WHAT YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT, PERHAPS IS WHAT'S GOING TO BE HAPPENING RIGHT HERE WHERE YOU'RE PARKING GARAGES BACK HERE, OK, WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT A PARKING GARAGE. THIS IS NOT AN INDUSTRIAL BUILDING.

OK, THIS IS HIGH END URBAN RESIDENTIAL.

THESE ARE $50 MILLION BUILDINGS, EACH ONE, OK.

AND SO IT WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY SILLY FOR NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES, A 67 YEAR OLD COMPANY THAT WE HAND-SELECTED TO BE OUR MASTER DEVELOPER FOR ALL OF ALLEN GATEWAY, WHO'S GOT TONS OF EXPERIENCE IN MIXED USE OF ALL DIFFERENT PROPERTY TYPES TO PUT THE GARAGE OR PUT THE BACK END ALONG EXCHANGE PARKWAY.

THAT'S THE MARKETING WINDOW.

THAT'S WHERE THEY WANT THAT VISIBILITY.

THAT'S WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO BE.

WE'LL BE SELLING THEIR UNITS.

THE OTHER THING IS, LOOK AT WHERE THE VIEWS ARE HERE.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE ELEVATED HERE.

YOU'RE LOOKING OVER THE 20 ACRE FOREST THAT WE DONATED THAT CREATED THE SIX CITY TRAIL ALONG ROWLETT CREEK.

AND THEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE STEAM CENTER, WHICH AGAIN IS 16 ACRES THAT WE DONATED TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. AND YOU'RE AN ELEVATED LOCATION THAT LOOKS AT HAS GREAT VIEWS THIS WAY. THEY'RE GOING TO WANT THESE RESIDENTS TO HAVE THOSE PREMIUM VIEWS LOOKING IN THAT DIRECTION. SAME THING HERE, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE OF THE ELEVATION THAT WE'VE GOT, AND THIS IS VERY CONCEPTUAL AT THIS POINT.

THIS PARTICULAR 10 ACRES WE'RE NOT COMMITTED ON, IT'S PROBABLY THE ONLY ACREAGE WITHIN.

A DEVELOPMENT OTHER THAN TWO ACRES RIGHT HERE THAT WE DON'T HAVE THE USER LINED UP THE SITE SOLD TO.

SO YEAH, IT'S A BIT OF AN OPEN PALETTE RIGHT NOW, BUT I THINK YOU JUST HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT HAVE WE DONE IN THE LAST 30 YEARS IN ALLEN AND HOPEFULLY FEEL THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO SCREW IT UP? YES, SIR. AND THAT'S PERFECT.

YOU KNOW, I MEAN, YOU'VE BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME.

I MEAN, I GUESS I WASN'T TRYING TO SUGGEST THAT YOU WERE DOING SOMETHING INFERIOR.

I THINK IT'S JUST SOMETIMES JUST GOOD FOR FOR YOU TO SPEAK TO IT BECAUSE I HAVE ALL THE CONFIDENCE IN THE WORLD YOU'RE GOING TO.

IT'S GOING TO BE A A GREAT DEVELOPMENT.

BUT SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW, WE LOOK AT THIS STUFF AND AND, YOU KNOW, HEAR US GUYS UP ON THE DAIS, WE CAN, WE GET TO SEE THIS AND YOU KNOW, WE GET TO TALK TO YOU.

BUT IT'S COMFORTING TO ME TO HAVE YOU COME UP HERE AND SPEAK TO THAT.

SO EVERYBODY, WHOEVER'S WATCHING HEARS AND SEES WHAT WE HEAR AND SEE AND AND JUST HEARING AND SEEING. I MEAN, I JUST I JUST DON'T WANT TO LIKE I DON'T LIKE IT WHEN WE JUST DISMISS THINGS BECAUSE THERE'S A GOOD STORY TO TELL HERE, AND THERE'S A GOOD STORY TO TELL ABOUT ALL OF TWIN CREEKS.

AND AND WHEN WE DON'T TALK SPECIFICALLY ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT, WHAT? IT'S REALLY GOING TO LOOK LIKE, IT JUST, YOU KNOW, IT JUST TROUBLES ME AND I APPRECIATE

[00:55:02]

YOU DOING THAT AND I'M CONFIDENT IT'S GOING TO LOOK GREAT AND IT'S GOING TO BE A LIKE I SAID, A WONDERFUL DEVELOPMENT. BUT I APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO SPEAK TO, YOU KNOW, WHAT'S WHAT YOU'RE THINKING OF RATHER THAN THIS DRAWING RIGHT WHERE EVERYBODY CAN LOOK AT. SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. WELL, THANKS FOR YOUR THOUGHTFULNESS AND YOUR GOOD QUESTION AND THE CONCERN FOR EACH OF YOU.

LET ME JUST GIVE YOU A BRIEF UPDATE ON WHERE WE'VE COME.

IT'S BEEN A LITTLE OVER A YEAR SINCE WE FIRST APPROVED PD 141, AND AT THAT TIME WE DIDN'T NECESSARILY HAVE THE VERTICAL DEVELOPERS IN THE POCKET.

AND SO WE WANTED TO WRITE A PD THAT HAD SOME FLEXIBILITY IN IT THAT HAD, YOU KNOW, SOME GOOD GUIDELINES AND THAT ENSURE THE QUALITY.

BUT I'M NOT A URBAN RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPER.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT I DON'T KNOW, AND SO WE BUILD AS MUCH FLEXIBILITY INTO IT AS WE CAN.

ONCE WE GET THE INDIVIDUAL GROUPS HERE, THEN WE FINE TUNE IT.

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES, A 67 YEAR OLD COMPANY WHO'S GOT DECADES OF EXPERIENCE IN MIXED USE.

MIKE BASILIO FROM NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES IS HERE TONIGHT AND IS A NORTH TEXAS RESIDENT AND IS, YOU KNOW, VERY, VERY INVOLVED IN WHAT'S GOING TO BE THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES, AND THAT IS A FIVE PHASE URBAN RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT.

THOSE FIVE PHASES ARE GOING TO TAKE PROBABLY 10 YEARS TO DEVELOP.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE GOING TO DO TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY FIVE UNITS ALONG RIDGE VIEW AND THE SOUTHERN END HERE AT THE GATEWAY FOREST, AND IT'LL PROBABLY BE 18 MONTHS TO TWO YEARS BEFORE YOU DO YOUR NEXT PHASE AND YOU DON'T WANT TO BUILD THEM TOO FAST AND ESSENTIALLY LIMIT THE SUCCESS OF THOSE.

SO THIS IS A LONG TERM PROJECT AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SEE THE 1700 UNITS FINISHED FOR PROBABLY A DECADE.

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE SOLD THE SITE TO STEPHEN KOEPP AND HIS COMPANY, KOEPP EQUITIES.

STEVEN GRADUATED FROM ALLEN HIGH SCHOOL.

HIS COMPANY IS HEADQUARTERED HERE OFFICE, RIGHT DOWN THE HALL FROM ALLEN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, AND THEY'RE BUILDING A STATE OF THE ART 12 STORY.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO. WE DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER 12 STORY BUILDINGS IN TOWN.

THIS WILL BE A 12 STORY, TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND FOOT OFFICE BUILDING WITH 60 LUXURY CONDOS FOR THOSE RESIDENTS WHO OFTENTIMES TRAVEL EXTENSIVELY TO OTHER CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AND THEY MAY NOT BE IN THE RIGHT POSITION TO HAVE A HOUSE SO THEY WANT TO LIVE RIGHT THERE AND BE ABLE TO WALK, YOU KNOW, TO TO WHERE THEY ARE.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE'VE SOLD ANOTHER ALLEN GROUP RETAIL PARADIGM.

THIS THREE ACRE SITE RIGHT HERE ALONG SHANGE PARKWAY TO DO ROUGHLY 15000 SQUARE FOOT RESTAURANT CENTER AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BEAUTIFUL PARK SETTING.

WORK OUT SOMETHING WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT TO HELP ENHANCE AND MAKE SOME CONNECTIONS TO THE CITY TRAIL FROM THEIR SITE.

PLUSH SUITES IS A FAMILY OWNED COMPANY.

THEY'RE UNDER CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW WITH THEIR HOTEL DOWN NEAR THE DALLAS GALLERIA.

THIS WOULD BE ANOTHER 12 STORY BUILDING.

THREE HUNDRED ROOMS AND THEIR EXTENDED STAY HOTEL ROOMS THAT ARE AIMED AT THAT RESIDENT WHO DOESN'T WANT TO RENT AN APARTMENT, WHO DOESN'T WANT A LONG TERM COMMITMENT ON AN APARTMENT, BUT WANTS TO STAY SOMEWHERE FOR A WEEK, TWO WEEKS A MONTH BECAUSE MAYBE THEY TRAVEL OVERSEAS AND THEY'RE HERE FOR A PERIOD OF TIME AND THEY COME IN. THIS WILL HAVE A FEDEX BUSINESS CENTER ON THE GROUND FLOOR, A DOGGIE DAYCARE ON THE GROUND FLOOR. WILL BE A VERY UNIQUE PROPERTY, AND THEY LOOKED ALL OVER NORTH TEXAS AND SAID, WE LOVE THIS SITE FOR A DESTINATION BECAUSE OF ITS LOCATION ON ROWLETT CREEK ON THE SIX CITY TRAIL.

THE VIEWS THAT IT HAS AND SO IT'S GOING TO BE A REAL ASSET TO OUR CITY AND CERTAINLY TO THE DEVELOPMENT. AND THEN, OF COURSE, WE'VE BEEN WORKING NOW SINCE 2017 WITH THE KATY TRAIL ICE HOUSE, AND WE'RE DELIGHTED THAT THEY WILL BE MOVING UP ON THE 10 ACRES RIGHT HERE NORTH OF THE STEAM CENTER AND ADJACENT TO COLLIN COLLEGE, BUDDY CRAMER AND BEN RALSTON. THE PARTNERS ARE HERE FROM KATY TRAIL ICE HOUSE AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A STELLAR FACILITY, GREAT GATHERING PLACE AND WITH THEIR PARTNER.

AS YOU MENTIONED, RAY WASHBURNE WILL BE BUILDING ANOTHER OFFICE BUILDING ON THIS 10 ACRE SITE. SO REALLY HAPPY WITH THE DEVELOPMENT PROGRESS THAT WE'VE MADE, AND I THINK YOU'RE

[01:00:07]

GOING TO SEE BEGINNING IN THE LAST QUARTER OF 2022 TO DIRT WORK GOING ON VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT STARTING AND IN THE 2023- 24 TIMEFRAME.

AN AWFUL LOT GOING ON THERE.

I WANTED TO TALK FOR A MINUTE ABOUT I THINK MARK REALLY EXPLAINED THE PHASING QUITE WELL, AND I'M NOT SURE THAT WE REALLY NEED TO GET INTO THAT ANYMORE UNLESS ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT PARTICULAR PIECE.

WHEN WE DO THESE DEVELOPMENTS, WE MAKE OUR BEST STAB AT IT AND WE THOUGHT, WELL, THIS IS GOING TO BE PRIMARILY OUR OFFICE CHARACTER DISTRICT IN THE TOLLWAY WEST RIDGEVIEW EXCHANGE WILL BE PRIMARILY OUR RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT WHEN WE GO BACK TO THE MASTER PLAN.

BUT MY LIMITED EXPERIENCE IN DEVELOPING URBAN RESIDENTIAL, I THOUGHT, WELL, WE COULD PUT ALL 1600 UNITS HERE AND WE'LL HAVE 100 UNITS UP HERE.

AS MIKE CAME IN AND SAID, HEY GUYS, YOU CAN'T PHYSICALLY DO THAT, SO WE NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO MOVE A PHASE RIGHT UP HERE.

AND SO THAT'S WHY WE'RE MAKING THOSE CHANGES.

IN A SIMILAR SENSE WE WANTED TO HAVE FLEXIBILITY IN CASE SOMEBODY WANTED TO COME ALONG AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS PLACE TO BUILD SOME URBAN RESIDENTIAL, LONG EXCHANGE CHARACTER DISTRICT. WELL, MIKE SAID, YOU'RE CRAZY HICKS.

YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT SPACE IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.

SO THAT'S WHY WE TOOK THOSE PARTICULAR UNITS AWAY.

WE HAVE SOME GREEN SPACES THAT ARE MANDATED IN THE PD.

PRIMARILY, THEY'RE ON THE TOLLWAY WEST CHARACTER DISTRICT AS WELL AS OUR MAIN PRIVATE STREETS THAT ARE GOING TO BE SHARED BY THE DIFFERENT GROUPS.

SO IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO HAVE A PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION, AND WE'VE GOT ALL OF THAT IN PLACE, AGREEMENTS WITH COPE AND AGREEMENTS WITH NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES, AND WE'LL HAVE AGREEMENTS WHEN WE HAVE OUR RETAIL USERS WHO COME IN HERE.

AND THERE'S ALSO SOME GREEN SPACE MANDATED IN THIS AREA AND THIS AREA IN THE EXCHANGE PARKWAY CHARACTER DISTRICT, AS WELL AS A GREEN SPACE POCKET PARK OVER IN THE TOLLWAY EAST. IT JUST MADE MOST SENSE FOR THE PROPERTY OWNERS HERE TO MANAGE THEIR PARTICULAR PROPERTIES. HOWEVER, AS KEVIN WAS ALLUDING TO, WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE CURE PROVISIONS SUCH THAT IF THE CITY NEEDS TO ENFORCE THE MAINTENANCE AND THE UPKEEP OF THIS GREEN SPACE HERE, THIS GREEN SPACE HERE, THE POA HERE WILL BE THE ONE THAT THE CITY CAN GO AFTER AND SAY, HEY, YOU NEED TO ENFORCE THAT AND THEY CAN COME IN AND CURE IT IF NEED BE AND CHARGE THIS GROUP. SO THAT'S KIND OF WHAT WE'RE CONTEMPLATING, AND WE'LL PROBABLY HANDLE THAT AT THE TIME OF PLATING AND IN AGREEMENT AS THE CITY MANAGER DICTATES AT THAT POINT.

YOU KNOW, IN A SIMILAR SENSE, YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT CC&R AND WHAT WE DO TO MAINTAIN THE QUALITY OF THE DEVELOPMENT.

YOU KNOW, IN RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD, WHEN WE'VE DONE OUR RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THOSE IN PLACE.

OTHERWISE YOU GET JUNKY HOMES, ET CETERA, THE TYPE OF PRICES THAT WE'RE CHARGING FOR LAND, FIRST OF ALL AND THE PROJECTS THAT ARE GETTING DONE HERE.

AND WHAT WE'RE INSURING FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE CONTRACTS, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BUILD A THREE HUNDRED ROOM, 12 STORY HOTEL WITH A FAMILY THAT'S BUILDING THIS ALL CASH.

I MEAN, THEY'RE NOT EVEN GOING FOR BANK DEBT ON THE VERTICAL DEVELOPMENT THERE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BUILD SOMETHING AS JUNKY.

AND IN THE SAME SENSE, WE'VE OVERSEEN WHAT THE RETAIL PARADIGM GROUP IS GOING TO BE DOING AND THEN CONTEMPLATE DOING THAT ON THE PIECE THAT'S DOWN HERE.

SO I THINK HOPEFULLY THE CONCERNS ABOUT THAT WILL BE DEALT WITH A LITTLE BIT.

AND THIS IS KIND OF WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE POA THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHERE, YOU KNOW, THIS WILL DEFINITELY BE SUBJECT TO A PLAY, AND WE'LL COUNT PRIMARILY ON THE INDIVIDUAL OWNERS TO MAINTAIN THEIR PROPERTY AND HAVE THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT IN THE WAY THAT THEIR GREEN SPACE AND PARK AREA IS MAINTAINED.

SO THAT BEING SAID, IF THERE ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR THOUGHTS AND HAD THE BENEFIT OF TALKING TO EACH OF YOU A LITTLE BIT INDIVIDUALLY ABOUT IT.

SO I THINK PERHAPS WE ANSWERED SOME OF THOSE QUESTIONS AND...

COUNCIL, DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR THE APPLICANT? YEAH, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

RIGHT. THANK YOU, DAVID. DO Y'ALL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR MARK BEFORE WE OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING? ALL RIGHT, IF SO, THEN WE WILL GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING AND ASK

[01:05:07]

ANYONE WISHING TO COME, SPEAK FOR OR AGAINST THIS REQUEST, PLEASE COME FORWARD AT THIS TIME. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.

FOR THE RECORD, I DID HAVE THE ONE CARD FOR YOU, DAVID, BUT YOU'VE ALREADY SPOKEN, SO YOU'RE TAKING CARE OF.

ANYONE ELSE? IF NOT, GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, AND I'LL JUST MAKE A FEW COMMENTS MYSELF.

TO ME, THIS PROPOSAL LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE BIT OF GIVE AND TAKE ON SEVERAL MINOR ITEMS, WHICH YOU KNOW TO ME SEEM TO BE GOOD CHANGES.

IT SEEMS TO ADDRESS SOME SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT REQUEST OF SOME OF THE SITES WITHIN THIS DEVELOPMENT. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF SHIFTING AND FINE TUNING, AND I THINK THAT ALL LOOKS GOOD.

I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE FACT THAT YOU ALL ARE LOOKING AT AN OFFICE DEVELOPMENT UP THERE NEXT TO THE REST OF KATY TRAIL.

I THINK THAT'S A GOOD COMPLIMENT TO USE TO EACH OTHER AS OPPOSED TO THE RESIDENTIAL, WHICH IS STILL AN OPTION THERE.

BUT I DEFINITELY PREFER THE OFFICE BUILDING OPTION MYSELF.

BUT WITH THAT, I WILL TURN THE QUESTION BACK OVER TO THE COUNCIL.

SO IF Y'ALL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR MARK, WE CAN HANDLE THAT NOW.

I THINK IT'S EVERYBODY'S GOOD.

NOW'S THE TIME, I REALLY HAVE NO QUESTIONS, I JUST WANT TO SAY THIS.

THIS WAS APPROVED WHAT BACK IN JANUARY 2020 ORIGINALLY? YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT ADDING ANY MORE SUBURBAN, NO MORE APARTMENTS TO IT, JUST MOVING AROUND LIKE LIKE THE MAYOR SAID.

LIKE THEY SAID, KNOW EXCITED FOR THE ICE HOUSE TO BE COMING IN, MORE RESTAURANTS.

I THINK IT'S REALLY GOING TO IMPROVE THAT AREA.

I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE THE SHINING BEACON ON 121 AND WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO GET IT GOING. THANK YOU.

YEAH, MAYOR, A COUPLE OF COMMENTS HERE.

YEAH, NO, DAVE CORNETTE IS RIGHT.

SO 2020, THIS WAS APPROVED BY THE PREVIOUS COUNCIL IN JANUARY AND IT APPROVED OR ALLOWED FOR 1700 UNITS, RESIDENTIAL UNITS, REGARDLESS OF PASS OR FAIL.

TONIGHT, THE 1700 UNITS WOULD STILL GO IN.

SO WHAT THIS DOES IS PROVIDE FLEXIBILITY TO THE VERTICAL DEVELOPER, TO DAVID ON IN EACH OF THE CHARACTER AREAS.

SO I THINK IT MAKES SENSE FOR EVERYBODY.

THERE'S A LOT OF GIVE IT A LITTLE GIVE AND TAKE, LIKE YOU SAID, WHICH IS GOOD.

THANK YOU. ANYBODY ELSE? WELL, EXCUSE ME, I KNOW WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR A WHILE AND IT WAS A PLEASURE WORKING WITH YOU, BUDDY. YOU KNOW, COMING DOWN AND FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, MEETING ONE ON ONE AND OUR LITTLE SMALL GROUP AND JUST KIND OF JUST HASHING IT OUT AND MAKING IT WORK AND IT JUST SHOWS.

DAN BOWMAN, I'M DAN AND HIS TEAM ON HOW THEY'VE JUST WORKED THROUGH THIS AND HIS BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND MICHAEL GOING DOWN AND MEETING WITH BUDDY AND AND, YOU KNOW, BUDDY'S, ONE OF THE BEST OPERATORS OUT THERE.

I'VE NEVER SEEN A GUY THAT HAS SUCH CLEAN SILVERWARE OUTSIDE.

SO I HAD A CHANCE TO SEE IT FOR MYSELF, YOU KNOW, SO WE UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT.

THE GUY RUNS GAS UNDERNEATH THE GROUND.

IT CAN MAKE STUFF LOOKS RUSTIC.

I MEAN, WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO DIVE INTO HIS CONCEPT AND REALLY GET TO KNOW IT, AND IT'S AN HONOR TO HAVE HIM COME TO ALLEN, TEXAS.

I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING.

SO THANK YOU.

I'M EXCITED. AND FROM ALLEN, IT'S GREAT NEWS FOR US.

SO YEAH, AND I DON'T I HOPE I DIDN'T MAKE A KIND OF SEND A MESSAGE THAT I WAS POOH POOH ANYTHING. DAVID, I JUST AGAIN, I THINK THERE WERE SOME GOOD THINGS, GOOD STORIES TO TELL AND AND I NEVER SUGGESTED THAT WE WERE PUTTING UP.

YOU WERE GOING TO PUT UP CRAP BECAUSE I KNOW YOU BETTER.

AND ANYWAY, I APPRECIATE YOU ANSWERING ALL MY QUESTIONS.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? MYSELF, TOO? I LOOK FORWARD TO KATIE TRAIL ICE HOUSE.

COME TO ALLEN. I THINK THAT WILL BE A GREAT FACILITY AND THE BEST LOCATION IN ALL OF NORTH TEXAS. I THINK THIS DEVELOPMENT IS GOING TO BE VERY SPECIAL ITSELF, JUST WITH ALL THE THE FORESTED AREAS, THE GREEN OPEN SPACES, THE HIKE AND BIKE TRAILS, ROWLETT CREEK.

ALL OF THAT IS JUST GOING TO MAKE THIS WHAT I THINK THE VISION OF IT WAS, AND THAT IS TRULY TO BE A GATEWAY FOR ALLEN FROM THAT NORTHWEST CORNER.

SO I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

SO WITH THAT, I WILL ASK THE CITY SECRETARY IF SHE HAS AN ORDINANCE NUMBER.

YES, SIR. ORDINANCE NUMBER 3886-1-22.

ALL RIGHT, SO WITH THAT, I WOULD ENTERTAIN A MOTION AND A SECOND TO APPROVE THIS ITEM.

MAYOR, I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION TO ADOPT ORDINANCE NUMBER 3886-1-22 AMENDING THE

[01:10:02]

DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS FOR PLANNING DEVELOPMENT NUMBER ONE FORTY ONE.

SECOND. I HAVE A MOTION AND SECOND.

DOES EVERYONE UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY'RE VOTING ON? IF SO, PLEASE VOTE NOW.

THIS ITEM PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

CONGRATULATIONS. GOOD LUCK, DAVID.

GOOD LUCK. A TRAIL ICEHOUSE.

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO BE DONE? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BE UP AND RUNNING? USE YOU AS WELL.

MICHAEL, THANK YOU.

AND GOOD LUCK TOO.

[6.1 Calendar.]

ARE THERE ANY CALENDAR ITEMS? I HAVE ONE. I GUESS I JUST WANT TO LET EVERYBODY KNOW THIS WATCHING AND AND ALL OF YOU HERE ON COUNCIL THAT NEXT MONDAY IS THE MLK APPRECIATION DAY SERVICE THAT'S AT COTTONWOOD CREEK CHURCH. AND JUST SO HAPPENS, WE HAVE A REAL SPECIAL EMCEE THIS YEAR.

OH, THERE HE IS, OUR VERY OWN MAYOR, PRO TEM BAINE BROOKS, AND THIS IS OUR FIFTH YEAR OF THE MLK APPRECIATION DAY SERVICE.

I'VE BEEN ON THE STEERING COMMITTEE OF THIS APPRECIATION DAY SERVICE SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN 2018.

IF I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO COME AND SEE IT AGAIN, IT'S A COTTONWOOD CREEK CHURCH.

IT STARTS AT NOON AND TYPICALLY ONE O'CLOCK.

AND AND IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT, IT'S A TRULY REMARKABLE AND WONDERFUL AND EVENT.

AND I'D LOVE TO SEE YOU THERE BECAUSE I WILL BE THERE.

SO AND YOU WILL TUNE IN APRIL 10.

THAT'S ALL. AND I BELIEVE THAT THAT IT'S IN PERSON AND THEY ALSO HAVE A VIRTUAL OPTION FOR THOSE THAT CAN'T BE THERE IN PERSON, RIGHT? AND I THINK THAT'S IT FROM NOON TO ONE.

OK. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER ITEMS? CALENDAR ITEMS? I HAD ONE, AND THAT IS AS MANY OF Y'ALL PROBABLY PROBABLY HAVE SEEN ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE AND EVERYTHING ABOUT A TOWN HALL MEETING COMING UP ON JANUARY 24TH AT SEVEN O'CLOCK HERE IN THE ALLEN CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS.

A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, THERE WERE SEVERAL CITIZENS THAT WERE REACHING OUT TO ME ASKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT IS THE STATE DONE? WHAT IS ENCORE DOING? WHAT IS ERCOT DONE TO HELP ADDRESS ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN THE LAST SEVERE WINTER STORM? AND IT JUST SO HAPPENED THROUGH ONE OF THE METROPLEX MAYORS ASSOCIATION AND ANOTHER BOARD THAT I SERVE ON.

I WAS ACTUALLY INTRODUCED VIRTUALLY TO BRAD JONES, WHO'S THE INTERIM PRESIDENT OF ERCOT AND THE CEO OF ERCOT, WHO WAS HIRED SPECIFICALLY TO ADDRESS THOSE ISSUES.

AND SO HE WAS WORKING WITH TEXAS PUBLIC UTILITY COMMISSION TO BASICALLY IDENTIFY THE THINGS THAT THEY NEEDED TO DO.

HE'S KIND OF GOT A WORK LIST.

HE'S BEEN WORKING ON IT.

HE'S GOING TO COME TO THAT TOWN HALL MEETING.

HE'S GOING TO MAKE A PRESENTATION AND TRY TO ANSWER ALL THOSE QUESTIONS.

TELL YOU WHAT HE'S DONE. TELL YOU WHAT HE HAS LEFT TO DO.

AND THEN IT'S GOING TO BE A, YOU KNOW, QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION.

AT THE END OF THAT, I WILL BE HERE THAT NIGHT TO KIND OF MODERATE THE QUESTIONS AND EVERYTHING. THERE WILL ALSO BE A VIRTUAL OPTION FOR PEOPLE, SO IF PEOPLE CANNOT ATTEND IN PERSON, THAT CAN LOG IN VIRTUALLY AND THEN THEY CAN ASK QUESTIONS THROUGH THE CHAT AND THOSE WILL STILL BE FUNNELED THROUGH ME.

SO I'LL BE MODERATING ALL OF THAT.

AND I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO THAT TOWN HALL MEETING BECAUSE I THINK IT'LL BE HIGHLY BENEFICIAL TO EVERYBODY.

I WAS SUPER IMPRESSED WHEN I'VE HEARD IT TWICE NOW, AND I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THIS INDIVIDUAL AND JUST ALL THE THINGS HE WAS TALKING ABOUT.

AND HE'S ONE OF THOSE GUYS THAT, YOU KNOW, IF HE'S GOING TO LEAD YOU INTO BATTLE, HE'S A GUY THAT YOU WANT TO FOLLOW INTO BATTLE BECAUSE HE CAN DO IT SO.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF HE'S GOING TO STAY WITH ERCOT FOREVER, BUT HE'S DEFINITELY THE RIGHT GUY AT THE RIGHT TIME TO FIX THE PROBLEMS. AND SO I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT, AND I EVEN ASK HIM A QUESTION THAT I'VE HAD ALL ALONG THAT I'VE ASKED, WHEN YOU COME TO ALLEN, PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION.

SO SOME I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION AS WELL.

SO THAT'S THE ONLY ITEM THAT I HAD.

ANY OTHER ITEMS FOR THE CALENDAR?

[6.2 Items of Interest. [Council announcements regarding local civic and charitable events, meetings, fundraisers, and awards.]]

IF NOT, ARE THERE ANY ITEMS OF INTEREST THERE? YES, I'D LIKE TO DO A SPECIAL SHOUT OUT FOR ONE OF OUR CITY OF ALLEN EMPLOYEES, CHILDREN.

TIMOTHY GEORGE'S, SON OF OUR CITY SECRETARY SHELLEY GEORGE AND GEORGE SON, IS GOING TO BE DEPLOYED THIS WEEK TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

AND I JUST WANT TO THANK HIM FOR HIS SERVICE AND HIS DEDICATION TO THE CITY AND TO OUR COUNTRY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[APPLAUSE] I'LL HAVE TO ASK THIS QUESTION, DO YOU HAVE A BLUE STAR FLAG? YOU NEED TO GET ONE. WE NEED TO PUT YOU ON THE AGENDA.

[01:15:02]

I THINK WE CAN MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

ALL RIGHT. IF THERE'S NOTHING ELSE, THEN I WOULD ENTERTAIN A MOTION AND SAY, I'VE GOT ONE MORE. OH, I'M SORRY. OK.

THERE'S A SPORTS CARD SHOW THIS WEEKEND.

OH MY GOSH. WITH THE MARRIOTT HOTEL AND THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF FAMOUS PEOPLE HERE THIS WEEKEND SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS.

AND SO COME ON BY.

THERE'S A LOT OF GOOD CARDS OUT THERE.

IF YOU CAN FIND A SIMONE BILES GOLD MEDAL AUTO ON CARD, LET ME KNOW.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, IT'S A GREAT WEEKEND.

THE TOWN'S BUZZING AND IT WELL, ANYWAY.

BUT YEAH, THE TOWN WILL BE BUZZING, THE RESTAURANTS WILL BE BUSY, OUR HOTELS WILL BE FULL AND IT'S JUST A GOOD TIME FOR OUR CITY.

LAST WEEKEND WE HAD THE BISONS IN TOWN FROM NORTH DAKOTA.

THEY DID WIN THEIR COLLEGE NORTH DAKOTA STATE.

SORRY, BISONS, THEY DIDN'T WIN.

THEY CAME TO OUR TOWN EVEN THOUGH THE GAME WAS IN FRISCO.

A LOT OF THEM STAYED IN ALLEN AND SO THEY DRANK A LOT OF BEVERAGES.

SO OTHER THAN THAT, PEOPLE ARE COMING TO OUR TOWN.

WE NEED TO BE PROUD OF OUR TOWN.

SO LET'S HAVE FUN THIS WEEKEND.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU. ANYTHING ELSE? IF NOT, I'LL ENTERTAIN A MOTION IN A SECOND TO ADJOURN MOTION TO ADJOURN.

ALL RIGHT. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.
