GOOD AFTERNOON. WELCOME TO THE LUBBOCK CITY COUNCIL MEETING.

[ 2:00 p.m. - City Council convenes in City Council Chambers in Work Session regarding items for presentation and discussion on such issues that may require in-depth consideration by the City Council. No action will be taken by the City Council in Work Session. ]

TODAY'S THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER.

TWENTY TWENTY ONE, IT'S TWO OF FIVE P.M.

I'LL CALL THE LUBBOCK CITY COUNCIL TO ORDER AND WORK SESSION.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

IT SEEMS LIKE WE WERE JUST HERE.

WE HAVE THREE ITEMS TO TALK ABOUT IN WORK SESSION TODAY, FOLLOWED BY THE NEED FOR A, I THINK, A RELATIVELY SHORT EXECUTIVE SESSION.

FIRST, WE WILL HEAR AN UPDATE ON THE PARKS AND REC AND OPEN SPACE MASTERPLAN.

FOLLOWING THAT, WE WILL GET AN UPDATE ON ARPA.

THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT AND WHERE WE ARE ON OUR EFFORTS TO ALLOCATE THOSE DOLLARS.

AND FINALLY, WE'LL GET AN UPDATE ON THE UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT CODE AND THE PROGRESS THAT IS BEING MADE ON THAT VERY IMPORTANT PROJECT.

SO TO GET IT STARTED, I'LL ASK THE CITY MANAGER TO MAKE A COMMENT OR TWO TO INTRODUCE

[1. Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan Update]

ITEM ONE ONE.

PARKS AND RECREATION, EXCUSE ME, PARKS RECREATION AND OPEN SPACE MASTER PLAN UPDATE MR. ATKINSON. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

CITY COUNCIL. WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MR. VAN GUNDY TEE UP KIND OF THE NEXT CHAPTER IN THE CONTINUING UPDATE TO THE PARKS RECREATION AND OPEN SPACE MASTER PLAN.

YOU CAN ALSO MENTION A FEW UPCOMING DISTRICT LEVEL MEETINGS TO GET SOME ADDITIONAL PUBLIC INPUT ON SUCH PLANS.

SO KOBE, IF YOU WOULD.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO WE GET THINGS TO GET ON? WELL, THEY'RE WORKING ON THAT.

I BELIEVE OUR FIRST DISTRICT MEETING IS GOING TO BE HELD THIS WEEK ON WEDNESDAY.

YES, WE WILL HAVE A MEETING AT 6:00 P.M.

THIS WEDNESDAY.

THE PATTERSON LIBRARY COMMUNITY ROOM.

THIS WILL BE FOUR DISTRICTS, ONE AND TWO MEETING TOGETHER.

IT'S OPPORTUNITY FOR THE PUBLIC TO COME OUT.

THIS WILL BE SIMILAR TO WHAT WE ALL DID AS A LARGER GROUP AT THE CIVIC CENTER SEVERAL WEEKS BACK. BUT WE WILL BE AT DISTRICTS ONE AND TWO PATTERSON LIBRARY COMMUNITY ROOM WEDNESDAY AT SIX.

YOU READY? COLBY MS. MR. ATKINSON LUBBOCK BEFORE MR. VAN GUNDY GETS GOING. LET'S ALSO MAKE CERTAIN THAT STAFF SENDS US THIS PRESENTATION.

AFTER THE MEETING, WE DID NOT.

I DON'T. I DON'T BELIEVE WE GOT IT.

WE'LL BE SURE YOU GET IT.

MAKE SURE WE HAVE IT FOR OUR FILES.

OK? YES, THANK YOU.

HOLD ME. PLEASE TAKE IT AWAY. OK, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MAYOR COUNCIL MEMBER, AS BITCOIN HAS COME A CUSTOMARY DURING ANY VISIT THAT WE GET FROM HALF, WE TRY TO TIE THAT IN TO A COUNCIL MEETING AND ALLOW OUR CONSULTANTS TO UPDATE YOU GUYS ON WHERE WE'RE AT AND WHERE WE'RE GOING.

AND SO TODAY WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT AS WELL.

WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING TO TODAY'S MEETING ABOUT THE CANYON LAKES AND THEN HOW WE'RE INVOLVING OUR TEXAS TECH STUDENTS TO HELP US WITH SOME OF OUR NEEDS ASSESSMENT.

SO WITH THAT, I WILL TURN OVER MR. AARON. THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU. GOOD AFTERNOON, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

WELCOME. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO AGAIN PROVIDE YOU WITH A QUICK OVERVIEW OF WHERE WE ARE, AS COLBY MENTIONED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR PARKS AND RECREATION MASTER PLAN. SO THIS AFTERNOON, AS COLBY HAD MENTIONED, WE DID WANT TO JUST GO OVER THE VARIOUS TYPES OF NEEDS ASSESSMENTS THAT WE'RE CURRENTLY UNDERTAKING IN EVALUATING YOUR PARK SYSTEM, AS WELL AS WE WILL DESCRIBE THE IMPORTANT ROLE THAT TEXAS TECH DEPARTMENT OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS ARE HAVING OR PLAYING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR MASTER PLAN AND THE MASTER PLAN FOR YOUR CANYON LAKE SYSTEM.

SO ONE THING WE DID WANT TO MENTION IS THAT OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS WE HAVE DECIDED TO RESTRUCTURE YOUR PARKS MASTER PLAN A LITTLE BIT INSTEAD OF BEING GOING THROUGH AN INTRODUCTION, EXISTING CONDITIONS NEEDS ASSESSMENT AND THEN FOLLOWING UP WITH STRATEGIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS, WE ARE DEVOTING SPECIFIC CHAPTERS TO SPECIFIC ASPECTS OF YOUR PARK, I.E. YOUR SPORTS AND ATHLETIC FACILITIES, YOUR AQUATIC FACILITIES AND INDOOR RECREATION, ET CETERA. SO YOU WILL NOTE THAT IN CHAPTER TWO, WE WILL BE REALLY FOCUSING ON LUBBOCK PARKS AND WE WILL BE APPLYING THE BULK OF THESE ASSESSMENTS WITHIN THAT CHAPTER.

BUT OF COURSE, ALL ALL OF THESE OTHER CHAPTERS WILL CONTAIN ASPECTS OF THESE ASSESSMENTS IN THEM AS WELL.

SO I'LL GET INTO THAT A LITTLE BIT MORE MOMENTARILY.

BUT WE DO TYPICALLY THERE ARE PROBABLY 13 OR 14 DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPECIFIC, SPECIFIC OR

[00:05:03]

SPECIALIZED ASSESSMENTS THAT WE WILL CONDUCT FOR A PARKS MASTER PLAN.

WE HAD DECIDED THAT THESE WERE GOING TO BE THE CORE ASSESSMENTS THAT WE WERE GOING TO DO FOR THIS MASTER PLAN.

AND I'LL JUST GO OVER EACH ONE OF THESE SEPARATELY VERY QUICKLY.

BUT AS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT EARLIER, THE DEMAND BASED ASSESSMENT BASICALLY SUMMARIZES ALL OF THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT THAT HAS BEEN PART OF THIS PLANNING PROGRAM THROUGHOUT THE DURATION OF THE OF THE PLAN.

SO WE WILL BE SUMMARIZING WHAT WE LEARNED FROM OUR VERY SUCCESSFUL OPEN HOUSE THAT WE HAD A FEW WEEKS AGO.

ALL OF THE INFORMATION THAT WE'VE GLEANED FROM THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE RESPONDED TO THE COMMUNITY SURVEY AND THE EXPRESS SURVEYS AS WELL, THAT HAS BEEN WE'VE WE'RE ENJOYING ABOUT, I BELIEVE IT'S LIKE THREE OR FORTY FOUR HUNDRED RESPONSES AT THIS TIME.

THE SURVEY WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THIS MONTH, AND THE PARKS DEPARTMENT HAS A STRATEGY ON HOW TO FURTHER ENGENDER SUPPORT AND ENTHUSIASM FOR FOR RESPONDING TO THAT SURVEY.

SO WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT GETTING A LOT MORE FEEDBACK FROM YOUR RESIDENTS ON ON WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE WITH RESPECT TO YOUR PARKS SYSTEM.

AND THEN, AS THE CITY MANAGER MENTIONED, THE PARKS DEPARTMENT WILL BE FACILITATING THREE ADDITIONAL DISTRICT SPECIFIC COMMUNITY MEETINGS WHERE HOPEFULLY WE'LL RECEIVE A LOT MORE INFORMATION ON A MORE DISTRICT WIDE BASIS.

SO ALL OF THAT WILL BE SUMMARIZED IN OUR DEMAND BASED ASSESSMENT.

THE NEXT TYPE OF ASSESSMENT WE DO IS WHAT WE CALL A STANDARD SPACED ASSESSMENT, WHERE WE CONFIRM HOW WE'RE CLASSIFYING PARKS BASED ON NATIONAL RECREATION AND PARKS ASSOCIATION CLASSIFICATION STANDARDS, AS WELL AS THE LEVEL OF SERVICE FOR EACH ONE OF THOSE PARKS.

AND SO THIS MAP, WHICH I DON'T THINK WE'VE SHOWN YOU THIS MAP YET, BUT THIS MAP BASICALLY DEFINES A LEVEL OF SERVICE PER PARK IRRESPECTIVE OF CLASSIFICATION, WHETHER IT'S A NEIGHBORHOOD PARK OR A COMMUNITY PARK OR A REGIONAL PARK.

WE DEFINE IT BY A WALK SHED, WHICH IS BASICALLY A 10 MINUTE WALK, WHICH IS A HALF A MILE WALK SHED AROUND EACH PARK SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE ARE THERE POTENTIAL GAPS IN THE PROVISION OF PARKS? BECAUSE IN PRINCIPLE, WE WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO WALK TO A PARK. AND SO THIS THIS ANALYSIS WAS DONE USING THE TRUST FOR PUBLIC LANDS PARKS SERVE.

AND IT DOES TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE A PERSON'S ABILITY TO ACCESS A PARK ON FOOT, WHETHER THEY HAVE TO CROSS KEY ARTERIAL THOROUGHFARES, ET CETERA.

WHETHER WHAT'S THE RANGE OF DIFFICULTIES IN IN BEING ABLE TO ACCESS A PARK.

SO WE ARE STARTING TO TO SEE, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN YOU CAN TELL THAT THERE IS AN ABSENCE OF PARKS AND IN SOUTH LUBBOCK SOUTHWEST LUBBOCK, BUT THERE IS A A GOOD CONCENTRATION OF PARKS PREDOMINANTLY WITHIN THE LOOP.

SO WE'LL CONTINUE TO ANALYZE THAT.

WE'RE ALSO CONDUCTING CONCURRENTLY AN OPERATIONS BASED ASSESSMENT WHERE WE'RE BASICALLY DOING A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF DIFFERENT CITIES THAT ARE THAT PROVIDE THE NATIONAL RECREATION PARKS ASSOCIATION DATA OR METRICS AS FAR AS HOW DO THEY OPERATE AND MAINTAIN THEIR PARKS.

AND SO THE NCPA HAS AGAIN A DATABASE OF WE'RE UTILIZING 39 COMMUNITIES WITH POPULATIONS THAT ARE SIMILAR IN IN SIZE TO LUBBOCK BETWEEN 200 AND 300000 PEOPLE.

WE'RE BASICALLY LOOKING AT AND WE'LL BE ABLE TO NEXT NEXT TIME WE'RE HERE IN DECEMBER WILL PROVIDE YOU A LIST OF THOSE OF THOSE CITIES THAT WE'RE UTILIZING FOR THIS KIND OF COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS.

BUT WE'RE LOOKING AT EVERYTHING FROM OPERATIONS OR OPERATING EXPENDITURES TO THE NUMBER OF STAFF THAT COMPARATIVE OR BENCHMARK COMMUNITIES HAVE FOR THEIR PARKS.

DEPARTMENTS LOOKING AT THE REVENUES GENERATED AS A RESULT OF DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES OR EVENTS OR RENTALS OR WHATEVER, WHAT THE REVENUES THAT THE PARKS DEPARTMENT WILL GENERATE ON BEHALF OF THE CITY FOR ITS PARKS, AS WELL AS STORAGE AND MAINTENANCE CONSIDERATIONS, FACILITIES, ET CETERA.

SO THESE ARE FOUR OF A RANGE OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF THINGS WE'LL BE LOOKING AT AS FAR AS OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR PARKS SYSTEM.

OUR RESOURCE BASED ASSESSMENT WILL BE LOOKING AT WHAT ADDITIONAL LANDS OR FACILITIES WITHIN YOUR BOTH YOUR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR BUILT ENVIRONMENT MAY BE CONDUCIVE TO

[00:10:03]

ADDITIONAL PARK ACTIVATION, WHETHER IT'S A A CORRIDOR.

THIS COULD BE A UTILITIES EASEMENT OR IT COULD BE A PLAYA SOMEWHERE, AS WE'VE TYPICALLY DONE HERE IN LUBBOCK.

BUT WE'RE ANALYZING AGAIN, WHERE MIGHT THERE BE RESOURCES TO ACTIVATE AREAS FOR ADDITIONAL PARKS IN THOSE PLACES WHERE THERE IS A GAP IN THE PROVISION OF PARKS? SO WE'RE CONTINUING TO LOOK AT THAT.

WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN PARKS THROUGH USING YOUR THE CITY'S TRAILS AND SIDEWALKS MASTER PLAN.

WE'RE IDENTIFYING KEY TRAILS WHERE THERE MIGHT BE WHETHER THEY'RE ON ON STREET BIKE LANES OR OFF STREET MULTI-USE PATHS, WAY OF WAYS OF FURTHER CONNECTING POINTS OF ORIGIN NEIGHBORHOODS, SUBDIVISIONS WITH DESTINATIONS, PARKS, COMMERCIAL AREAS, SCHOOLS, ET CETERA. ARE CONDITIONS BASED ASSESSMENT IS HOPEFULLY WILL BE THE THE THE BEGINNINGS OF A COMPREHENSIVE ASSET MANAGEMENT PROGRAM FOR YOUR PARKS DEPARTMENT, SO THEY WILL BE ABLE TO DEVELOP A BETTER INFORMED, PRIORITIZED PARK EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE AND THEN BE ABLE TO BUILD THAT INTO THEIR DEPARTMENTAL SIP.

SO THIS IS WHERE THE TEXAS TECH STUDENTS ARE GOING TO BE INVALUABLE IN JUST HAVING SO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE.

WE'VE GOING TO EACH PARK AND EVALUATING THE CONDITION OF ALL OF THE DIFFERENT PARK FACILITIES, WHETHER IT'S A PARK BENCH OR WHETHER IT'S A STREETLIGHT OR WHETHER IT'S A PLAYGROUND OR WHETHER IT'S THE FALL SURFACE UNDERNEATH THE PLAYGROUND, THEY'RE GOING TO BE COMPLETE. WE'VE GIVEN THEM A SCORING KIND OF METHODOLOGY, SO WE CAN WE CAN BE SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE SCORING THINGS LIKE AN APPLES TO APPLES KIND OF BASIS.

AND THEN ONCE WE RECEIVE ALL OF THOSE SCORES, WE WILL THEN START TO ASSIGN A REPLACEMENT SCHEDULE FOR THAT.

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF THIS BENCH IN THIS PARK? AS IMPORTANTLY, WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT OK IF WE NEED TO REPLACE THIS BENCH.

IS THIS THE IS THIS THE BEST LOCATION FOR A BENCH? OR MAYBE THIS BENCH OUGHT TO BE RELOCATED TO A PLACE WHERE THERE'S MORE SHADE, FOR EXAMPLE? SO. SO WE'RE LOOKING AT KIND OF THE DESIGN AND THE USE OF THE PARKS AS WELL.

SO AGAIN, WITH ALL 83 PARKS, WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT, WHETHER IT'S A BENCH OR A PICNIC TABLE OR WHATEVER, BUT WE'LL BE ASSIGNING A A SCORE AND THAT WILL THEN EQUATE TO WHEN IT OUGHT TO BE REPLACED OVER TIME.

A TEXAS TECH IS ALSO WE HAVE UPPER LEVEL CLASSES WORKING WITH US ON THE MASTER PLAN FOR THE CANYON LAKES, AND I JUST WANTED TO SHOW YOU A FEW OF THE IMAGES THAT THEY HAVE BEEN PRODUCING, BUT THEY'RE SOME OF THE KEY KIND OF SUBJECT AREAS OR THEMES THAT THEY'RE LOOKING AT. YOU CAN SEE LISTED EVERYTHING FROM HOW CAN WE ENHANCE THE SENSE OF PLACE WITHIN THE CANYON LAKES? HOW CAN WE CREATE BETTER ACCESS AND CONNECTIVITY WITH WITH ADJACENT NEIGHBORHOODS? HOW CAN WE ENSURE THAT THAT THERE IS AN EQUITABLE PROVISION OF DIFFERENT PARK FACILITIES WITHIN THE CANYON LAKES, ET CETERA? SO THEY'RE LOOKING AT A RANGE OF DIFFERENT KINDS OF THEMES, AND THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING FROM DOING LAND USE ANALYZES TO OF ADJACENT LANDS TO REALLY UNDERSTAND HOW AGAIN, HOW MIGHT THE CANYON LAKES? THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THESE LAKES BE CATALYTIC AND STIMULATING ADJACENT REDEVELOPMENT OF AREAS, BUT THEY'RE LOOKING AT EVERYTHING FROM CIRCULATION AND CONNECTIVITY TO TOPOGRAPHY.

THEY HAVE A VERY IN-DEPTH, SOPHISTICATED LIDAR SYSTEM WHERE THEY'RE LOOKING AT WHERE ARE THERE AREAS OF EXCESSIVE SLOPE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT ANY KIND OF TRAILS THAT WE DEVELOP ARE HANDICAPPED, ACCESSIBLE AND ALSO SUBJECT TO TECH START FUNDING, WHICH WOULD BE A KEY CRITERION.

LOOKING AT KEY NODES THROUGHOUT THE THE CANYON LAKES AREA, VEGETATION DRAINAGE, HOW DO PARKS, AS WELL AS OVERFLOW PLAYAS AND TRIBUTARIES CONNECT TO THE WHOLE SYSTEM? SO THEY'RE REALLY TAKING AN IN-DEPTH KIND OF SYSTEMS ORIENTED ANALYSIS OF THE CANYON LAKES? AND THESE ARE BUT A FEW OF THE OF THE DIFFERENT MULTIPLE ANALYZES THAT THEY'VE DONE BREAKING THE BREAKING THE THE LAKES DOWN INTO KEY DISTRICTS LIKE LARGE ROOMS, IF YOU

[00:15:01]

WILL, THAT KIND OF THING.

BUT THEY ARE DEFINITELY LOOKING AT A A PRINCIPAL TRAIL THAT WOULD ACT AS A SPINE THAT WOULD RUN ALL THE WAY DOWN THROUGH PROPOSED LAKE NUMBER SEVEN, AS WELL AS HOW CAN WE ENHANCE OR CREATE GREATER CONNECTIVITY WITH THE BOROUGH HUFFMAN SPORTS COMPLEX ON THE OTHER END OF THE OF THE CANYON LAKES? THEY'RE LOOKING AT EVERYTHING FROM PROTOTYPICAL MATERIALS THEY MIGHT WANT TO BE USING BECAUSE WE ARE LOOKING AT A AT A HIERARCHY OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRAILS RUNNING THROUGH THE CANYON LAKES.

AGAIN, LOOKING AT CONNECTIVITY WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING UNDER THOROUGHFARES AND OVERPASSES. AND THEY'RE ALSO LOOKING AT A WHOLE BUNCH OF DIFFERENT CASE STUDIES ABOUT HOW HAVE TRAILS BEEN UTILIZED IN OTHER PARKS.

SO THIS IS A PARK RIGHT DOWN THE STREET FROM WHERE I LIVE IN HOUSTON, IT'S THE NEW RENOVATION OF MEMORIAL PARK.

THIS IS THE EASTERN GLADES, WHICH IS JUST AN AMAZING LAKE FEATURE IN DOWNTOWN HOUSTON.

BUT OTHER AREAS AS WELL, WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM OTHER PARKS? AND THERE ARE APPLICATIONS OF THESE KIND OF AMENITIES THAT MIGHT BE RELEVANT TO THE CANYON LAKES.

AND SO IN A NUTSHELL, THAT'S BASICALLY WHERE WE ARE.

WE'RE ALSO GOING TO BE COMING BACK IN MID-DECEMBER, I BELIEVE, ON THE 13TH, AND WE'LL BE ABLE TO THEN SHARE WITH YOU OUR FINDINGS FROM A LOT OF THESE ANALYZES.

AND I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

OK, THANK YOU, ERIN.

COUNCIL, I'LL OPEN THE FLOOR FOR QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS.

MS. JOY AARON, IN THESE MEETINGS THAT WE'RE HAVING BY DISTRICTS, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO UTILIZE? WELL, BETTER YET, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GET INPUT? THAT'S MORE THAN JUST ME TELLING YOU.

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DO THAT? AND THEN HOW ARE YOU GOING TO UTILIZE THAT INPUT? SIMILAR COUNCIL MEMBER SIMILAR TO THE PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE, WE DO HAVE A BUNCH OF BOARDS AND EXERCISES THAT THE PARKS DEPARTMENT WILL BE WALKING PEOPLE THROUGH.

THERE WILL ALSO BE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR PARTICIPANTS TO ENGAGE IN THE COMMUNITY SURVEYS AS WELL. AND YEAH, ESSENTIALLY WE'RE GOING TO BE USING ALL OF THE SAME DEVICES, IF YOU WILL, THAT WE UTILIZE FOR THE OPEN HOUSE, EXCEPT AT A SMALLER SCALE.

AND SO HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE MORE GREATER OPPORTUNITY FOR MORE HANDS ON AND ACTIVITIES AND ONE ON ONE DISCUSSIONS WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MS. JOY MR. CHRISTIAN. YES, SIR, THANK YOU FOR THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT.

PARKS HAVE BEEN ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN PARKS FOR MY ENTIRE TENURE AS A COUNCILMAN.

AND MY QUESTION TO YOU, SIR, IS.

I APPRECIATE THE INFORMATION THAT YOU SHARED WITH US ABOUT CANYON LAKES IN EAST LUBBOCK, WHICH IS AN INCREDIBLE ASSET TO OUR CITY.

BUT YOU ALSO MENTIONED THAT WE'RE VERY INCREDIBLY PARCHED, POORER ON THE WEST SIDE OF LUBBOCK WHEN WE HAVE OUR OPEN HOUSES AND IN IN THE COMING WEEKS FOR FIVE AND SIX.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TELL THOSE PEOPLE THAT WE'RE GOING TO YOU'RE GOING TO DO FOR THOSE RESIDENTS ON THAT PART OF TOWN AND IN PARTICULAR, MCALLISTER PARK, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY THE SIZE THAT NEEDS A REGIONAL PARK AND IT NEEDS GREAT ATTENTION AND IT NEEDS MORE ATTENTION THAN IT'S GETTING, IN MY OPINION RIGHT NOW.

AND IT NEEDS SOME EQUITY IN REGARDS TO WHAT'S GOING ON IN EAST LUBBOCK TO.

I THINK THAT'S AN EXCELLENT QUESTION, COUNCIL MEMBER.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL INTERNAL DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THE TYPES OF PLAYAS IN SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST LUBBOCK THAT MIGHT BEST SERVE FOR THE PURPOSES OF PARK PARK ENHANCEMENTS AND AMENITIES.

SO THAT'S ONE WAY, AS WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IN THE A LITTLE BIT IN THE UDC COMMITTEE MEETINGS, HOW WE MIGHT GET AHEAD OF DEVELOPMENT BY REALLY FOCUSING ON SPECIFIC PLAYAS, NOT ALL PLAYAS, FOR EXAMPLE, SO THAT THAT WILL BE ONE AMENITY THAT WE BELIEVE.

AND WE'RE PARTICULARLY LOOKING AT OVERFLOW PLAYAS AS A WAY OF CREATING MAYBE A NETWORK OF PARKS THAT WOULD BRAID THROUGH A SERIES OF SUBDIVISIONS.

SO THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY AT THIS POINT.

WHAT ARE THE GOVERNMENT? IT'S ON OUR RADAR SCREEN.

MR. MAYOR, IN REGARDS TO COST RECOVERY AND REVENUE, ARE YOU GOING TO COME BACK WITH SOME SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT WE CAN DO WITH SOME OF THE AMENITIES AND ALL THE THINGS THAT COULD BE REVENUE GENERATORS FOR OUR PARKS AND SPECIFICALLY OUR ATHLETIC FIELDS?

[00:20:02]

BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY, EVEN ON OUR UDC MEETINGS, WHEN IT COMES TO PARKS, IT'S HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR THEM? WHETHER IT'S PUTTING NEW VENUES AND ATTRACTIONS INTO OUR EXISTING PARKS OR HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR NEW PARKS THAT NOT AREN'T EVEN IN EXISTENCE RIGHT NOW? SO I THINK THAT HAS TO BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF US MOVING FORWARD WITH OUR PARK PLAN. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR.

THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIAN. LET'S GO NEXT TO MR. CHADIS JUAN.

THANK YOU, MARY. AARON, ONE OF THE SLIDES, CAUGHT MY ATTENTION.

FEMA FLOOD PLAIN RELEVANCE TO THIS CONVERSATION FOR PUBLIC INFORMATION.

WHEN IT COMES TO ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT IS HOW CAN WE ENHANCE PLAYAS WITHIN PARKS? BECAUSE TYPICALLY THEY'LL GO THROUGH A PERIOD WHERE THEY LOOK LIKE THEY'RE EITHER HALF EMPTY AND DRY WITH A WITH A LARGE KIND OF MUDDY RING AROUND THEM.

SO HOW CAN HOW CAN WE ENHANCE THOSE PARKS THROUGH UTILIZING NATIVE VEGETATION THAT CAN WITHSTAND BEING INUNDATED PERIODICALLY? BUT AT THE SAME TIME, HOW MIGHT WE IRRIGATE THAT PLANT MATERIAL DURING PERIODS OF DROUGHT USING SOME OF THE WATER THAT MIGHT BE IN THE PLAYAS IF THAT'S POSSIBLE? SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE DEFINITELY LOOKING AT IS WHEN, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO OVERFLOW PLAYAS, HOW MIGHT WE BEST ENHANCE THE THOSE PLAYAS SO THEY MIGHT FUNCTION BETTER AS PARKS THEY LOOK, THEY'RE MORE VISUALLY APPEALING, IF YOU WILL.

SO THAT'S ONE ONE CONSIDERATION.

BUT ALSO THERE'S A TERM THAT THAT IS USED IN THE INDUSTRY ABOUT WHEN DISCUSSING THE RESILIENCE OF PARKS OR HOW CAN PARKS MAKE HELP TO MAKE A COMMUNITY MORE RESILIENT? ONE WAY IS TO FUNCTION AS A SPONGE PARK, IF YOU WILL, TO WHERE PARKS CAN ACTUALLY ABSORB A LOT OF THE EXCESS STORM STORMWATER DRAINAGE, THUS KEEPING OTHER OTHER AREAS OR PREVENTING OTHER AREAS FROM BEING FLOODED.

SO ALWAYS LOOKING AT A 100 YEAR OF AND 500 YEAR FLOODPLAIN MAP IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN WE'RE KIND OF MAPPING THESE THINGS OUT SO WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT PARKS SERVE MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS OTHER THAN JUST RECREATION.

OK, SO MY UNDERSTANDING FEMA IS.

THE ONE THAT DESIGNATES FLOOD PLAIN ALSO CAN DESIGNATE NO LONGER CORRECT.

SO ARE WE RELYING ON FEMA TO COME ACROSS AND SAY, HEY, THIS AREA IS NO LONGER IN THE FLOODPLAIN? WILL THAT WOULD? I GUESS MY QUESTION IS, WOULD THAT FREE UP MONEY? THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

I DON'T HAVE THE ANSWER IMMEDIATELY FOR YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER, BUT I CAN FIND THAT OUT FOR SURE.

YES, SIR. POTENTIALLY IT COULD.

YEAH, AND THAT'S WHY THAT'S WHY I WAS BRINGING UP THE FLOOD PLAIN.

BECAUSE IF IT'S TYING UP MONEY.

FOR A PARK, THAT PARK IS CRUCIAL TO A NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND IF WE'RE NOT RECEIVED OR IF THAT PARTICULAR PARK IS NOT RECEIVING MONEY BECAUSE IT'S TIED UP IN THE FLOOD PLAIN, AND IF WE'RE RELYING ON FEMA TO REMOVE THAT, WELL, IT WOULD BE ANOTHER CONVERSATION.

WE KNOW WHERE FEMA IS WHEN IT COMES TO FLOOD PLAINS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, AARON.

THANK YOU. MR. CHADIS MS. PATTERSON HARRIS. THANK YOU.

I HOPE THIS QUESTION DOESN'T SOUND SILLY, BUT HOW DO WE PREPARE CITIZENS TO SHOW UP FOR THE MEETINGS? AND HOW DO WE PREPARE THEM SO THEY'LL KNOW WHAT INFORMATION TO PROVIDE OR BRING? I ATTENDED. I WAS KIND OF ON THE TAIL END OF IT, BUT I ATTENDED THE COMMUNITY EVENT AT THE CIVIC CENTER, AND IT SEEMS LIKE THERE WAS A BOMBARDMENT OF CERTAIN AREAS OF INTEREST VERSUS OTHERS. SO HOW DO WE, IF THIS IS A GOOD QUESTION, HOW DO WE PREPARE CITIZENS TO COME AND BRING GOOD AND APPROPRIATE INFORMATION TO THESE MEETINGS? YES, MA'AM. AND IT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION.

SO ONE THING THE PARKS DEPARTMENT IS, IF I MAY SUMMARIZE DURING THIS LAST MONTH TRYING TO, WE'RE TRYING TO GET OUT AS MANY PEOPLE OR GETTING AS MANY PEOPLE TO RESPOND TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE OR THE SURVEY AS POSSIBLE.

BUT THE PARKS DEPARTMENT IS PUTTING YARD SIDE SIGNS OUT AND ALL OF THE PARKS PARTICULARLY. AND THE WAY WE DEVELOP THIS COMMUNITY SURVEY WITH THESE QR CODES IS THAT WE CAN TELL WHICH RESPONDENTS RESPONDED TO THE SURVEY USING WHICH QR CODES.

SO THEN WE HAVE KIND OF SOME GEOGRAPHIC UNDERSTANDING OF WHERE THEY LIVE.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO REALLY BE FOCUSING ON THOSE AREAS WHERE WE HAVEN'T RECEIVED THAT

[00:25:01]

MANY RESPONSES, BUT ALSO THAT QR CODE WILL DIRECT THE RESPONDENTS OR ANYBODY WHO'S INTERESTED TO THE PROJECT WEBSITE WHERE THEY CAN RECEIVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AS WELL, BUT ALSO MEAGAN HONEYMOON, WHO'S A MEMBER OF THE PARKS DEPARTMENT STAFF.

SHE HAS BEEN REALLY GOOD ABOUT PROVIDING CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS WITH FLIERS ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE CAN EXPECT TO BE DOING WHEN THEY WHEN THEY COME TO THESE COMMUNITY MEETINGS.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE I THINK THAT WILL EITHER HELP US TO GET PEOPLE OUT IF THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE COMING TO PROVIDE, WHAT THEY'RE COMING TO, BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU MAY NOT HAVE THAT INTEREST BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW AND THEY'LL THINK, OH, IT'S JUST SOMETHING LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO AND THEY WON'T LISTEN.

SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I SAY THE RIGHT THINGS AND SHARE THE RIGHT INFORMATION TO FOLKS THAT I REALLY WANT TO.

I THINK WOULD BENEFIT TO HAVE THEM AT THOSE MEETINGS.

SO THAT'S THAT'S WHY I WAS ASKING BECAUSE NORMALLY WE SAY, COME AND SHARE YOUR IDEAS AND WHAT YOU THINK. AND YOU KNOW THAT THAT'S NOT ENOUGH NEBULOUS.

YEAH, YEAH. AND SO I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT, YOU KNOW, I AM DOING EVERYTHING THAT I CAN, DOING THE RIGHT THINGS TO GET FOLKS OUT SO THAT YOU CAN HEAR FROM THEM AND THEIR IDEAS. AND, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON'T COME BECAUSE WE DON'T THEY DON'T FIGURE THAT YOU'RE ASKING THEM.

AND IF YOU DON'T ASK THEM, YOU DON'T GET THAT INFORMATION.

SO IT'S A VERY IMPORTANT POINT.

AND I KNOW THAT MEAGAN AND THE PARKS DEPARTMENT THERE, THEY'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO Y'ALL'S ATTENDANCE AT THESE, THESE DISTRICT MEETINGS.

I'M SURE THEY'LL BE PROBABLY PROVIDING YOU WITH SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THAT.

OK, THANK YOU.

IF I MAY, THERE WAS JUST ONE THING I WANTED TO ADD TO MR. CHRISTIAN TO TO RESPOND TO MR. CHRISTIAN'S POINT, AND THAT IS WHEN IT COMES TO THE OPERATIONS BASED ASSESSMENT.

THIS FIRST PASS THROUGH, IT'S VERY ITERATIVE KIND OF PROGRAM, OF COURSE, BUT WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING BASICALLY A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS.

BUT ONE THING THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT AND SEVERAL OF YOU ALL HAVE MADE THIS VERY CLEAR TO US IS THAT WE NEED TO REALLY TAKE AN ENTREPRENEURIAL KIND OF LOOK AT HOW CAN THESE HOW CAN YOUR PARKS GENERATE REVENUE, ARE THERE FROM BEING A STAND ALONE ENTERPRISE FUND OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT? BUT SO COST RECOVERY IS GOING TO BE A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THIS THIS ANALYSIS.

THEN ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OK, ERIN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE APPRECIATE THE UPDATE.

OK. ITEM ONE TWO IS AN UPDATE ON THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT FUNDS MR.

[2. American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funds Update]

ATKINSON. THANK YOU, MAYOR, IF YOU WOULD SWITCH TO THE EAST INPUT, I BELIEVE IS THE CORRECT ONE. THANK YOU.

OK, COUNCIL, WE'RE GOING TO DO A QUICK CATCH UP.

WE WANT TO REALLY ACCOMPLISH THREE THINGS TODAY KIND OF A STATUS REPORT WHERE WE ARE WITH ARPA STOP AND TAKE INPUT THAT YOU MAY HAVE AND SEE IF WE CAN DEVELOP PLACEHOLDERS FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM.

AND THEN FINALLY TEE UP THE TOPICS THAT WE WOULD EXPECT FOR YOU TO COVER AT YOUR JOINT MEETING WITH THE LUBBOCK COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT COMING UP SOON.

SO WITH THAT, WE'LL GET RIGHT INTO IT.

QUICK REMINDER FIFTY SIX POINT SIX MILLION DOLLARS WAS THE ALLOCATION TO THE CITY, 14 MILLION OF THAT WAS COMMITTED.

AND NOW WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT YEAR'S BUDGET, LEAVING FORTY TWO POINT SIX THAT WE HAVE NOT EITHER COMMITTED OR TAGGED AT THE MOMENT? AS TIMING.

REMEMBER, THE MONEY CAME IN IN TWO TRANCHES, TWENTY EIGHT POINT THREE, TWENTY EIGHT POINT THREE MILLION. SO BETWEEN HERE AND NEXT JUNE, THERE'S FOURTEEN POINT THREE MILLION IN HAND AND THEN WE WILL GET THAT SECOND TWENTY EIGHT POINT THREE MILLION IN JUNE.

KEY DATES, THE COMMITMENT DEADLINE, THE PERIOD OF TIME BY WHICH THIS BODY MUST HAVE TAKEN AN ACTION TO SAY THESE DOLLARS WILL GO FOR THIS PURPOSE.

DECEMBER 31, 2020 FOR ALL FUNDS COMMITTED BY DECEMBER 31ST, 2020, FOR YOU STILL THEN HAVE AN ADDITIONAL TWENTY FOUR MONTHS TO SPEND THEM.

ANYTHING THAT'S NOT COMMITTED BY TWENTY TWENTY FOUR, IT WILL DISAPPEAR.

WE'LL OWE THAT BACK TO THE TREASURY.

ALTERNATIVELY, IF WE HAVE COMMITTED IT ALL AND WE HAVE IT SPENT BY TWENTY TWENTY SIX, GOOD IF NOT, THOSE FUNDS ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO RECAPTURE.

THAT IS, UNDER THE CURRENT RULES.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY INDICATION THAT AT LEAST THIS PART IS GOING TO CHANGE.

SO HERE'S WHERE WE STAND AT THE MOMENT.

[00:30:03]

PRIOR DISCUSSIONS, COUNSEL, WE'VE COME UP WITH SIX PROPOSED JUST BROAD FUNDING CATEGORIES. FIRST ONE BEING PUBLIC SAFETY AND PREPAREDNESS DURING OUR DISCUSSION IN AUGUST, WE ASKED YOU TO LET US ADD A BULLET UNDERNEATH THAT FOR WHAT WE CALL SURGE RESPONSE. YOU'LL GET AN UPDATE ON THAT IN JUST A MOMENT.

TARGETED CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE, NEIGHBORHOOD RECOVERY AND REVITALIZATION.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES, JOB TRAINING AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

AND THEN THE THIRD BULLET OR THE FINAL BULLET ARTS, NONPROFITS AND SMALL BUSINESS.

LET'S LOOK AT EACH OF THESE BY CATEGORY AND KIND OF WHERE WE STAND TODAY.

PUBLIC SAFETY AND PREPAREDNESS.

THE BIGGEST COMMITMENT THAT'S BEEN MADE TO THIS POINT IS TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH FACILITY.

THIS TO BE THE BUILDING AT 50TH AND YOU THAT WAS PURCHASED WITH PRIOR DOLLARS.

COUNSEL, WE THINK THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE OR TO EXPAND THIS INTO A JOINT CITY, COUNTY OPERATION AND FACILITY.

WE DON'T NEED ONE OR THE OTHER.

WE'RE GOING TO SUGGEST THAT WE NEED BOTH.

REMINDER THAT YOU DID SET 8.1 MILLION IN YOUR CURRENT BUDGET.

AND AGAIN, THIS IS A TOPIC WE BELIEVE FOR YOUR JOINT MEETING, AND WE'LL SUMMARIZE ALL THOSE ON THE LAST SLIDE.

POLICE, FIRE AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, CURRENT BUDGET 5.9 MILLION FOR VEHICLES.

COUNCIL SINCE WE'VE LAST MET, THERE HAVE BEEN TENTATIVE DISCUSSIONS ON A JOINT EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT WAREHOUSE WITH THE TEXAS DIVISION OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND POTENTIALLY OTHERS. THERE IS NOT A BUDGET NUMBER FOR THIS AT THE TIME.

I'LL GIVE YOU THE BACKGROUND.

THE STATE OF TEXAS, THROUGH TWO DIFFERENT FUNDING MECHANISMS, HAS GIVEN TDM DOLLARS TO BUILD THREE EMERGENCY RESPONSE WAREHOUSES.

THE FIRST ONE IS ACTUALLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

IT'S A VERY LARGE FACILITY THAT WILL BE IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, AND I SAY LARGE SOMETHING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF 300000 SQUARE FEET, VERY LARGE.

OBVIOUSLY, THAT WOULD BE PANDEMIC RESPONSE.

BUT SAN ANTONIO IS ONE OF THE BASES ALSO FROM WHICH THEY RESPOND TO THINGS LIKE TROPICAL STORMS AND HURRICANES.

SO IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE.

THE SECOND ONE WE DO NOT BELIEVE HAS BEEN CITED YET, BUT IT WILL BE IN EAST TEXAS, PROBABLY SOMEWHERE IMMEDIATELY EAST OF THE DALLAS FORT WORTH METROPLEX.

FORTUNATELY FOR THIS REGION, TO GET IN WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE THIRD ONE IN WEST TEXAS AND THEY ARE VISITING WITH BOTH US AND LUBBOCK COUNTY ON THE POTENTIAL OF PUTTING IT HERE IN LUBBOCK. WE ESTIMATE AND AGAIN, THEY'RE THE LEAD ON THIS PROJECT, NOT US, BUT WE ESTIMATE THAT THAT SOMETHING IN THE 70 TO 100000 SQUARE FOOT RANGE.

SO WE'LL HAVE MORE FOR YOU AT SOME POINT.

IT'S OUR UNDERSTANDING TIM NEEDS TO AT LEAST GO UNDER A LETTER OF INTENT BY THE END OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR. SO THAT'S OUT THERE WASN'T WHEN WE MET IN AUGUST, BUT MAYBE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO PARTNER MAY NOT REGARDLESS.

PLEASE KNOW THAT STAFF FULLY SUPPORTS TIEDE IN GETTING THEIR FACILITY HERE.

WE THINK THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE FOR THIS REGION.

WE DO HAVE THE ONGOING BOOSTER CLINIC NOTE THAT THAT IS NOT USING ARPA FUNDING AT THIS TIME, AND I DON'T BELIEVE THAT IT'S GOING TO NEED ARPA FUNDING, AS WE'VE SEEN OVER THE LAST 18 MONTHS.

THINGS CHANGE QUICKLY SOMETIMES, BUT RIGHT NOW WE THINK THAT'S COVERED.

WE TALKED ABOUT SURGE RESPONSE IN AUGUST.

REMEMBER, OUR INFECTION NUMBERS WERE WAY UP.

HOSPITALIZATIONS WERE WAY UP.

ULTIMATELY, THE STATE DID COME THROUGH AND THEY PROVIDED ALL THE STAFFING RESOURCES THAT WERE NEEDED. IN FACT, THOSE RESOURCES WERE FUNDED, PUT IN PLACE AND LEFT IN PLACE THROUGH THE END OF OCTOBER.

THEY WILL BE COMPLETELY DEMOBILIZED, THOUGH BY THE END OF NOVEMBER.

SO COME DECEMBER 1ST, IF THERE ARE ANY STAFFING CONTRACTS IN PLACE, THEY'LL BE BETWEEN INDIVIDUAL FACILITIES IN THE CONTRACTOR RATHER THAN WITH THE STATE OF TEXAS.

BUT STATE STEPPED UP IN A LARGE WAY AND IT WAS A HUGE, HUGE HELP TO US.

WITH THAT BEING THE CASE, WE DO NOT HAVE A BUDGET REQUEST FOR ARPA DOLLARS FOR SURGE RESPONSE. JUST KNOW WE WERE A LITTLE NERVOUS IN AUGUST.

WE'RE NOT SUCH ANYMORE.

SO GO TO TARGETED CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE.

WE'VE LISTED THREE BULLETS, THE FIRST IS UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A SMALL PIECE OF THAT IN R AND R AS NEIGHBORHOOD RECOVERY AND REVITALIZATION. IT'S ON THE NEXT PAGE.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BROADBAND EXPANSION.

SINCE WE HAVE LAST BRIEFED THE COUNCIL, THERE'S BEEN A MEETING HELD HERE IN THIS

[00:35:02]

BUILDING, THE REPRESENTATIVE THAT IS IN CHARGE OF THE EFFORTS OF THE TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY AND THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE.

IT'S CALLED OPERATION CONNECTIVITY.

IT IS A PROGRAM TO QUOTE CONQUER THE DIGITAL DIVIDE.

SO IT IS A WAY OR IT IS A PROGRAM DESIGNED TO SEE CAN WE DESIGN WAYS? TO PROVIDE BROADBAND IN AREAS WHERE IT'S JUST NOT AVAILABLE TODAY.

IF THIS WAS TO BE SOMETHING THAT THE COUNCIL CHOOSES TO PURSUE, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A MULTI-AGENCY PROJECT.

I ENVISION THE COUNTY.

EDUCATION SERVICE CENTER, INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND LIKELY OTHERS, SO TO START THIS, IF WE GO DOWN THAT ROAD, I THINK YOU'D BE LOOKING AT A PILOT PROJECT.

STATE'S DONE TREMENDOUS WORK ON MAPPING AS FAR AS AVAILABILITY, AVAILABILITY THAT MEETS THE DEFINITION OF THE BROADBAND ACCEPTED SPEEDS.

AREAS WHERE IT DOES NOT.

THEY'VE DONE A TON OF WORK TO SAY YES, BUT WE HAVE THIS WHITE SPOT ON THE MAP.

IS COMMERCIAL GOING TO BE AVAILABLE IF IT'S NOT, POTENTIALLY IT'S A CANDIDATE FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

THE MEETING THAT WE HELD HERE, THE REPRESENTATIVE THAT CAME IN AS A LADY NAMED GABY ROWE, SHE'S GOT A TREMENDOUS PRESENTATION.

WE HAD NUMEROUS CITY OFFICIALS.

WE HAD THE MAYOR, THE MAYOR, PRO TEM.

WE DID HAVE THE LOCAL EDUCATION SERVICE CENTER AND THE THREE OF THE FIVE LARGEST INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICTS, AS WELL AS CITY STAFF COUNCIL ALL SUGGESTS THIS IS A GOOD TOPIC FOR THE JOINT MEETING.

IF YOU HAVE BROADBAND ACCESS OR LACK THEREOF, IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY FOLLOW A PARTICULAR BOUNDARY. CYBERSECURITY HAS BEEN MENTIONED EVERY TIME WE'VE HELD THESE DISCUSSIONS.

WE CONTINUE TO WORK ON A PROJECT BUDGET FOR TODAY'S PURPOSES, I'M GOING TO SUGGEST ABOUT A TWO POINT TWENTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS PLACEHOLDER COUNCILWOMAN WE GET TOWARD THE END OF THIS PRESENTATION. I'M GOING TO PUT A LEDGER SHEET UP THAT WILL ALLOW YOU ALL TO HAVE INPUT ON THAT AND TELL US WHERE YOU THINK WE ARE.

NEIGHBORHOOD RECOVERY AND REVITALIZATION, WE ARE WORKING WITH SOME PARTNERS ON A PROPOSED HOUSING PROJECT APPEARS TO MEET ALL OF THE VARIOUS QUALIFICATIONS.

IT'D BE A MINIMUM OF 60 UNITS, PROBABLY LOOKING AT SOMETHING NOT MORE THAN A ONE POINT TWENTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS PLACEHOLDER ON THAT ONE.

TALK ABOUT COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES.

FIRST, THE MENTAL HEALTH COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS.

IS THIS ALSO MULTI-AGENCY POSSIBILITY AS IT RELATES TO THE DIVERSION CENTER? AND OF COURSE, ADDITIONAL STATE FUNDING HAS HAS COME FORWARD AS A RESULT OF THIS FINAL SPECIAL SESSION? MAKES THAT REALLY MUCH, MUCH MORE LIKELY TO HAPPEN.

SHOULD WE ALSO SET UP A PLACEHOLDER IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE COUNTY AND BE A TOPIC FOR THE JOINT MEETING? HOMELESSNESS CERTAINLY RELATED TO MENTAL HEALTH, BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE SAME IN TERMS OF SOLUTIONS SHOULD BE MULTI-AGENCY.

I MEAN, IT AFFECTS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US WHO WOULD SUGGEST THAT THAT'S A TOPIC FOR THE JOINT MEETING. THERE HAVE BEEN QUITE A BIT OF WORK DONE, BUT IT'S REALLY BEEN MORE IN THE STUDY MODE WOULD NOT SUGGEST TO YOU WE HAVE A SOLUTION OR A PROJECT TO PROPOSE AT THIS MOMENT, BUT WE CERTAINLY FEEL LIKE THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.

AND WITH THE ARPA FUNDING, IT'S A GOOD IT'S A GOOD CHANCE TO ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING WE'VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO IN THE PAST.

BUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THIS, THIS BRINGS IN THE DISCUSSIONS ON GETTING THE CONTINUUM OF CARE ESTABLISHED IN SO MANY OTHER THINGS.

SO IT'S IT'S NOT SIMPLE, BUT IT'S IMPORTANT.

SO WE'LL LEAVE THAT THERE FOR THE MOMENT.

FINALLY, UNDER COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES, WE HAVE HAD DISCUSSIONS AND HAVE STARTED TO LOOK AT PROPOSALS FOR A PROGRAM THAT'S FOCUSED ON AT RISK YOUTH.

RIGHT NOW, WE DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT DETAIL TO BRING THAT FORWARD TO YOU BUT KNOW THAT THERE'S THERE'S FOLKS VERY INTERESTED IN HELPING WORK ON THAT.

JOB TRAINING AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

WE ARE ALSO IN DISCUSSIONS WITH A JOB TRAINING PARTNER.

IT APPEARS THAT WHO WE'RE VISITING WITH NOW COULD CERTAINLY HELP THE COMMUNITY, PROBABLY RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVELY, WOULD CERTAINLY LIKE TO IDENTIFY SOME MORE PARTNERS, THOUGH, THAT THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE FIXED.

I DON'T BELIEVE BY ONE PARTICULAR PROGRAM ARTS NONPROFITS AND SMALL BUSINESSES, CATEGORY NUMBER SIX COUNSELED.

AS YOU'RE AWARE, WE'VE HAD REPRESENTATIVES HERE BEFORE US.

WE HAVE THE LEADER.

I'M HERE WITH US TODAY.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHAT'S AVAILABLE TO ASSIST THE LOCAL ART GROUPS.

[00:40:01]

SUGGEST MAYBE A $1 MILLION PLACEHOLDER AND SEE HOW THAT CONTINUES TO DEVELOP SO IT COULD COME BACK TO COUNCIL FOR CONSIDERATION.

WE'VE ALSO ENTERED EARLY ON DISCUSSIONS WITH LOCAL NONPROFITS, AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF WEST TEXAS, TO SEE IF THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO APPLY SOME FUNDS IN THAT DIRECTION TO FILL SOME, SOME ELIGIBLE NEEDS.

IN A SHORT, RELATIVELY SHORT DISCUSSION, THAT'S KIND OF YOUR UPDATE BY CATEGORY, IF I PUT ALL OF THAT TOGETHER, IT TAKES US TO WHAT WE'LL CALL THE LEDGER FOR TODAY.

SO WE'VE FORTY TWO POINT SIX MILLION OF THE ALLOCATION THAT'S AVAILABLE.

IT'S NOT BEEN COMMITTED.

WE MENTIONED HOUSING, CYBERSECURITY, DIVERSION AND THE ARTS TODAY, I HAVE PUT THOSE SAME NUMBERS ON THE SCREEN.

THAT'S AN ADDITIONAL SEVEN AND A HALF MILLION.

IF THOSE NUMBERS WERE ACCEPTABLE OR SOME PERMUTATION OF THEM, YOU'RE LOOKING AT A BALANCE OF ABOUT 35 POINT ONE.

NOW COUNCIL, WHERE WE REALLY NEED YOUR INPUT AND YOUR HELP TODAY IS OVER ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE SCREEN.

SO TOPICS THAT WE HAVE DISCUSSED OR MENTIONED, BUT WE DON'T HAVE BUDGET NUMBERS AT THE MOMENT. I'VE LISTED BROADBAND, HOMELESSNESS, JOB TRAINING, NONPROFIT, SMALL BUSINESS, UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE, POTENTIALLY FUTURE PUBLIC SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS AND THEN THE WIDE OPEN. OTHERS LIST OTHERS.

SO THAT BEING FOR THE COUNCIL MAYOR, WE CAN STOP ON THIS ONE OR I CAN FLIP TO THE LAST ONE AND COME BACK. HE WAS.

I BELIEVE WE SHOULD STOP RIGHT HERE AND GET SOME FEEDBACK.

SO I THINK JARRETT, IT'S IMPORTANT TO REITERATE ONE THING WE'VE ONLY COMMITTED THE 14.

MILLION IN CHANGE, CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT. ANYTHING ELSE IS JUST ALL DISCUSSION FOR DISCUSSION.

YES, THAT'S WHY I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT'S CLEAR.

OK, COUNSEL WHO WANTS TO GO FIRST ON THIS? MR. CHRISTIAN, YOU WANNA GO FIRST? ALL RIGHT. LEAD US OFF. I'M THINKING ABOUT THIS QUITE A BIT OVER THE LAST WEEK, AND IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT NUMBER OF BALLOTS OF THIRTY FIVE POINT ONE MILLION DOLLARS AND SOME GREAT PROJECTS AND OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY.

AND SINCE I'VE BEEN ON COUNCILWOMAN, MORE THAN ONE OCCASION, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT LIBRARIES.

ONCE AGAIN, ON THE WEST SIDE OF OUR OUR CITY, THE LIBRARY THAT WE HAVE NOW CURRENTLY IS HOUSED IN THE OLD MUSKIE'S WESTERN STORE.

I'D LIKE TO SEE US.

HAVE A JOINT PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR COUNTY FOLKS AND ALLOCATE SOME MONEY.

IN WORKING TOWARDS A DESIGN.

AND WORKING ON POSSIBLE LOCATIONS FOR A LIBRARY OUTSIDE THE LOOP, AS WE'VE TALKED ABOUT ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS.

IN MY MIND, I SEE THIS LIBRARY NOT JUST BEING A LIBRARY, BUT I'M SEEING IT AS A COMMUNITY CENTER BECAUSE THAT'S ALSO SOMETHING THAT WE DON'T HAVE ON THE WEST WESTERN HALF OF OUR CITY AS WELL. AND AS WE CONTINUE TO EXPAND IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS, GROW RAPIDLY IN THAT AREA, I THINK THAT THIS WOULD BE A GREAT ASSET TO NOT ONLY THE WEST LUBBOCK, BUT ALSO THOSE RESIDENTIAL AREAS THAT ARE POPPING UP EVERY DAY.

I THINK IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO AT LEAST BRING OUT SOME CONSIDER A NUMBER OF $1.5 MILLION FROM THE CITY AND THE SAME FROM THE COUNTY FOR US TO START DEVELOPING AS A SET OF DESIGN IN A REAL GAME PLAN ON PUTTING THAT A MUCH NEEDED LIBRARY AND COMMUNITY CENTER WITHIN THE WESTERN HALF OF OUR.

GREAT, CITY, THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIAN. MR. CHADIS, THANK YOU, MAYOR JARRETT, YOU MENTIONED AT RISK YOUTH.

ARE WE LOOKING AT A. ARE WE TARGETING A CERTAIN AGE BRACKET FROM AGE, EARLY AGE TO HIGH SCHOOL? OR WHAT GROUP ARE WE LOOKING AT? THE GROUP THAT WE HAVE BEEN VISITING WITH FOCUSES ON THE LAST YEAR OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN THE FIRST YEAR OF MIDDLE SCHOOL.

OK. AND THEN ANSWERS MY QUESTION BECAUSE THEN I WAS GOING TO SAY, CAN CAN THAT BE TIED INTO JOB TRAINING, BUT DIFFERENT AGE GROUP HERE? SO HOW ARE WE DOING THE JOB TRAINING? ARE WE REACHING OUT TO THE 501S TO HELP OUT WITH THIS? WE HAVE REACHED OUT AND MET WITH AN EXISTING 501C3 THAT FOCUSES ON TECHNICAL AND LICENSED TRADES. THEY'VE GOT AN INTERESTING MODEL.

THEY WORK BY HAVING THE I SAY STUDENT FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM, BUT THEY IDENTIFY THE POTENTIAL STUDENT ADULTS WHO THEY PLACE IN A COMPANY THAT USES LICENSE TRAITS.

[00:45:04]

SO THEY START OFTEN REALLY AT KIND OF A LABOR TYPE POSITION, BUT THEN THEY GO THROUGH A MULTI WEEK PROGRAM.

SO IF IT'S AN ELECTRICAL COMPANY, A PLUMBING COMPANY, WHATEVER IT MAY BE HVAC, THESE STUDENTS ARE PAID TO WORK DURING THE DAY, AND THEN THEY COME BACK TO THAT PROGRAM ONCE A WEEK IN THE EVENING TO START WORKING ON SKILLS AND PREPARING THEM TO GET INTO THE LICENSURE PART OF THE TRADE.

THAT'S GREAT BECAUSE AGAIN, WE RECOGNIZE NOT EVERYBODY OR NOT EVERYONE IS GOING TO COLLEGE FOR WHATEVER REASON IT MAY BE.

AND AT THIS POINT, THERE IS A TRAIT THAT THEY CAN MAKE SOME SERIOUS MONEY IN THE SAME AT THE SAME TIME FOR THE FINAL ONES OUT THERE THAT ARE PROVIDING THIS SERVICE.

YOU KNOW WHO WHO DO THEY CALL OR WHO? WHO WHAT DO THEY DO? HOW DO THEY OPEN UP THIS COMMUNICATION? HAVE THEM CONTACT THE MANAGER'S OFFICE SEVEN SEVEN FIVE.

I'M SORRY NOWADAYS.

EIGHT OH SIX SEVEN SEVEN FIVE TWO ZERO ONE SIX.

THANK YOU, JARRETT. THANK YOU, MARY.

THANK YOU. TAKE ME A LONG TIME TO REMEMBER THAT.

OK, THANK YOU. MR. CHADIS.

LET'S GO TO MR. PATTERSON HARRIS SHELIA.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. MAYOR. I HAVE SEVERAL NOTES, SO I'M GOING TO SWING THROUGH THESE THINGS.

WE ARE INDICATING ARTS.

AND NONPROFITS, SMALL BUSINESSES, BUT I DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING THAT INDICATED ANYTHING RELATIVE TO SMALL BUSINESSES ON THE PREVIOUS SLIDE THAT YOU HAD, AND YOU MAY BE JUST GROUPING THEM TOGETHER, I DON'T KNOW, BUT I WASN'T CLEAR ON THAT.

IF YOU MAKE THAT NOTE, THE OTHER THING WITH REGARD TO TDM WILL THE FACILITY THEY'RE LOOKING FOR BE RESPONSE DRIVEN AS WELL, SIMILAR TO THE FACILITY IN SAN ANTONIO.

TO TO THE FIRST ONE, YES, WE'LL GO BACK IN IN FUTURE PRESENTATIONS, I'LL SHOW SMALL BUSINESS UNDER IT'S APPROPRIATE ONE OF THE OF THE SIX CATEGORIES.

WE HAVE SOME THOUGHTS AND IDEAS ON THAT AND WE MAY GET INTO THEM A LITTLE BIT LATER.

AS FAR AS THE TDM FACILITY, IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING IT WILL SERVE TWO PRIMARY PURPOSES.

FIRST, IT WILL ACTUALLY BECOME THEIR REGIONAL OFFICE AND EMERGENCY OPERATION CENTER.

BUT SECOND, IT WILL HAVE SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT IN IT.

THAT IS RESPONSE DRIVEN.

OK, THANK YOU.

PUBLIC HEALTH, I KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE A MEETING WITH REGARDS TO THE CITY AND COUNTY TO MAYBE CHEW ON ON THAT.

SO COULD THIS OR WOULD THIS MEAN THAT THE FUNDING THAT WE ARE LOOKING TO EARMARKED FOR THAT FACILITY COULD BE REDUCED BECAUSE THE COUNTY COMES IN? OR DO WE JUST ELEVATE THINGS TO A DIFFERENT LEVEL AND ALLOW THEM TO BRING IN FUNDS? HOW ARE WE LOOKING AT THAT WORKING? I THINK CERTAINLY IT COULD POTENTIALLY BE AN OFFSET.

I THINK THE COST WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE PHYSICAL PART OF THE FACILITY WOULD LIKELY GO UP SLIGHTLY. BUT WHATEVER PARTICIPATION CAME IN AND THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS TO, YOU KNOW, TO GO OUT AND PUT THE PRICE TAG TO IT.

BUT I THINK THE PARTICIPATION IF THE COUNTY WAS WAS AGREEABLE TO DOING IT WOULD ULTIMATELY, TO SOME EXTENT BUY DOWN THE EIGHT POINT ONE THAT THE CITY HAS PUT ON THE TABLE. OK.

AND THE PIECE REGARDING THE NEIGHBORHOOD RECOVERY AND REVITALIZATION, OF COURSE, THAT THAT GETS MY EARS PERKED UP.

THE ONE POINT TWENTY FIVE IS THAT SOMETHING THAT WE COULD MAYBE INCREASE WITH THE POTENTIAL OF SOMEONE MAYBE ADDING SOME ADDITIONAL ADDITIONAL PROJECT? OR WE'RE SAYING THAT THAT'S PROBABLY SOMETHING THAT COULD BE FEASIBLE TO GET THINGS DONE AS WE HAVE IT. THE ONE THAT WE'RE WORKING WITH RIGHT NOW IS GOING TO BE CAPPED JUST ON LAND SPACE. SO I THINK THAT'S A DOLLAR FOR THAT PROJECT, IF THAT'S WHERE WE END UP GOING.

I WOULD SUGGEST THAT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THE ONLY ONE SO THAT WE DO.

THAT'S ALL I GOT. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. GOOD QUESTIONS. THANK YOU.

OK, WHO'D LIKE TO GO NEXT? MR. MASSENGALE THANK YOU.

I LIKE ADD TO THE LIST.

I THINK MR. ATKINSON PRESENTED A GOOD LIST OF TOPICS TO DISCUSS AS IT RELATES TO THE FUNDS. YOU KNOW, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE.

THESE ARE ONE TIME FUNDS THAT WE.

UH, I HOPE THAT WE MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE AN IMPACT WITH THE FUNDS THAT WOULD BE PROJECTS THAT WE WOULDN'T OTHERWISE UNDERTAKE, AND I THINK WHAT I'M MOST ATTRACTED TO AND WHAT I THINK COULD HAVE.

THE MOST PHENOMENAL IMPACT IS BROADBAND AND IS I DON'T THINK WE UNDERSTAND.

I THINK WE CAME TO UNDERSTAND DURING THE PANDEMIC HOW MANY PEOPLE AREN'T CONNECTED.

AND I THINK WE'VE COME TO THE POINT IN OUR WORLD THAT BROADBAND OR INTERNET CONNECTIVITY IS REALLY.

THE FOURTH UTILITY AND SO I.

[00:50:04]

I LOOK FORWARD TO OUR DISCUSSIONS AND TO SEE WHERE WE.

WHAT WE CAN DO AS IT RELATES TO BROADBAND.

THANK YOU, MAYOR PRO TEM, FOR THE COMMENTS.

MS. PATTERSON HARRIS, AGAIN, THANK YOU.

I'M SORRY, BUT IT'S JUST GOOD.

THERE'S NO MAYOR PRO TEM KIND OF BROUGHT THAT WHAT I HAVE SO MANY NOTES ON THIS PAGE.

I CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THEM. BUT WITH REGARD TO BROADBAND, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE COUNTY HAS FUNDS WOULD ALSO BE THE POTENTIAL FOR THE ISDS, IF YOU WILL, OR WHOMEVER, WHATEVER OTHER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS TO PROVIDE FUNDS AS WELL.

ON THE ON SOMETHING OF THIS NATURE.

YES, I THINK IT'S POSSIBLE.

TO ME, THE THING TO REALLY, REALLY KEEP IN MIND AND WE'RE WATCHING A PROJECT THAT'S AHEAD OF OURS. AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT MODEL.

I THINK SOME VERSION OF THAT LIKELY WORKS HERE, BOTH LOCALLY.

POTENTIALLY IT WORKS REGIONALLY.

BUT I COULD TIE THIS DIRECTLY BACK TO THE MAYOR PRO TIM'S COMMENT.

IT'S ONE TIME MONEY THAT WE PUT IN WITH THIS.

SO IF YOU'RE CREATING A FOURTH UTILITY TO FILL A GAP THAT THE PRIVATE SECTOR CAN'T OR WON'T, HOW IT LIVES ON AND ON IS REALLY GOING TO BE AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT PART OF THAT DISCUSSION. YEAH.

AND I THINK HE BROUGHT UP A GOOD POINT WITH REGARD TO COVID, REALLY? MAKING US AWARE OF THE LIMITATIONS THAT SO MANY FAMILIES HAVE, PARTICULARLY WHEN THEY'RE NEEDING TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THEIR CHILDREN IN THE HOME.

I RECEIVED SEVERAL CALLS FOR INDIVIDUALS OUTSIDE OF THE LOOP AND JUST STEP AWAY FROM ACTUALLY WHAT WOULD BE INSIDE THE COUNTY.

SO I WOULD THAT THAT THE COUNTY IS ALSO THINKING REALLY BIG ON THIS PARTICULAR AREA AS WELL, BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY INDIVIDUALS AT THE PARTICULAR AREA JUST AT THE EDGE OF DISTRICT TWO AND BEYOND THAT PLACE THAT SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES DID NOT HAVE THOSE SERVICES. SO THE MAPS THAT THE STATE HAS HAD PUT TOGETHER ARE, I'LL TAKE SOME OF IT MAKES SENSE. YOU KNOW WHERE THE THE MORE SPARSELY LESS POPULATED AREAS ARE SPARSELY POPULATED AREAS. THOSE ARE EASY TO UNDERSTAND.

THEY'VE IDENTIFIED AREAS THAT ARE NOT WHERE I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED THEM TO BE.

AND THEY'RE OF COURSE, WORKING WITH YOUR MAJOR COMMERCIAL PROVIDERS TO SEE, OK, ARE Y'ALL COMING OR ARE YOU GOING TO GET HERE? AND I THINK WHEN WE HEAR FROM METRO AGAIN AT THE NEXT MEETING, Y'ALL WILL REALLY ENJOY THAT DISCUSSION. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU. MS. PATTERSON HARRIS.

LET'S GO TO MS. NEXT LATRELLE MR. ATKINSON. AS I UNDERSTOOD THESE ARPA FUNDS, THEY ARE TO BE USED FOR DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED. PARTS OF OUR COMMUNITY BUSINESSES, THAT SORT OF THING ISN'T CORRECT.

AND THEY THEY WERE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY COVID.

CORRECT. THAT'S THE INITIAL QUALIFIER, YES.

AND SO I THINK WE NEED TO KIND OF KEEP THAT IN MIND.

WE WERE HAVING THIS DISCUSSION.

LAST COUNCILMAN, WE LEARNED THAT THERE'S $28 MILLION THAT'S BEEN PROVIDED, AND MOST OF IT'S BEEN SPENT ON THE UTILITIES, THE MORTGAGE PAYMENTS, THAT SORT OF THING FOR PEOPLE WHO WERE AFFECTED.

SO WE'VE GOT THAT, THAT GOING ON.

AND SO WHEN WE'RE LOOKING AT ALL OF THESE TOPICS.

WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND WHAT OUR.

OUR INITIAL CHARGES, AND THEN WE NEED TO START LOOKING AT WHAT MONIES HAVE ALREADY BEEN PROVIDED TO OTHER GROUPS, FOR EXAMPLE, THE COUNTY, THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, THE BUSINESSES, WHETHER THEY BE SMALL OR LARGE, WHAT MONIES HAVE ALREADY BEEN PROVIDED TO NON-PROFITS, THE ARTS SO.

THIS IS NOT EXACTLY AN EASY TASK TO DO.

BUT JUST BECAUSE WE GOT THE MONEY, WE'VE GOT TO BE CAREFUL AND STAY WITH OUR CHARGE.

AND WE NEED TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHAT'S ALREADY BEEN SPENT.

I BELIEVE WE NEED PARTNERS.

I CAN'T THINK OF ANY OF THOSE ON THIS LIST WHERE YOU HAVE PLACEHOLDERS OR WHERE YOU HAVE OPEN TOPICS THAT WE SHOULDN'T BE MEETING WITH OUR PARTNERS, WHETHER IT'S AS A COUNCIL OR

[00:55:04]

IT'S YOU OR IT'S THE MAYOR OR WHOMEVER.

YOU KNOW, FOR EXAMPLE, JOB TRAINING.

YEAH, WE WE DO HAVE MECHANISMS IN PLACE FOR THAT AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST ONE IS SOUTH PLAINS COLLEGE. AND SO ALL OF THE SCHOOLS HAS THE HIGH SCHOOLS THAT I KNOW ABOUT AND LUBBOCK COUNTY ALL HAVE TECHNICAL.

TRAINING, YOU CAN WELD, YOU CAN WORK ON AN AUTOMOBILE.

ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE SCHOOLS, AND SO ALL THAT TELLS ME IS IT TAKES A LOT OF COORDINATION TO DO THIS AND NOT JUST THROW MONEY AT SOMETHING WHICH I'M ADAMANTLY OPPOSED, JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE IT.

WE'RE GOING TO THROW IT AT IT.

THE ARTS BOTHERS ME SOME, BECAUSE I DON'T WHEN I THINK OF ARTS, I THINK OF MORE.

UH, GROUPS, NOT JUST NOT JUST ARTISTS, NOT JUST MUSICIANS, BUT OTHER VENUES.

AND I UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE VENUES RECEIVED SHELTERED MONEY.

BUT IT'S A VERY BROAD CATEGORY, AND I WOULD LIKE FOR US TO EXPAND ON THAT BECAUSE I THINK THERE ARE SOME VENUES IN THE CITY THAT COULD BENEFIT FROM SOME OF THIS FUNDING BECAUSE THEY WERE AFFECTED.

BY THE COVID.

BUT A MILLION DOLLARS IS NOT GOING TO GET IT.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT RIGHT NOW, EVEN ON A NARROW BASIS, IT'S PROBABLY NOT GOING TO GET IT.

NOW, ONCE AGAIN, THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LOOK AT THE SAME THING.

HAVE THEY RECEIVED ANY OTHER MONIES? AND IF THEY HAVE THE NEW KIND OF WORK, WORK BACKWARDS.

BUT I THINK WE NEED TO MAYBE EXPAND A LITTLE BIT, BE A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC ABOUT WHO OUR PARTNERS ARE.

WHAT OUR CRITERIA IS GOING TO BE, AND I KNOW WE HAVE SOMEONE IN PLACE WHO CAN DO THAT, STACEY KEITH CAN DO THAT ON THE ARTS, BUT STACEY, WHAT'S A BETTER TERMINOLOGY FOR THAT OTHER THAN ARTS? BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T MEAN THE SAME THING TO EVERYBODY.

SORRY, SOLOMON, THANK YOU.

I JUST CAME TO LISTEN TODAY, YOU PUT ME ON THE SPOT, I'M SORRY, AND THAT'S OK.

WE'VE WE'VE CALLED IT IN THE IN THE PIECES AND THE MATERIALS THAT WE HAVE DRAFTED FOR IT.

WE'VE CALLED IT. WE'VE INCLUDED OUR CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS, OUR MUSEUMS, OUR ARTS, OUR ARTISTS, OUR INDEPENDENT MUSICIANS, OUR LIVE MUSIC VENUES, OUR FACILITIES AND SO OUR PERFORMING ARTS FACILITIES.

AND SO OUR CONCEPT WOULD BE THAT I KNOW, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU DO A PRESENTATION, YOU KIND OF HAVE TO KEEP IT, KEEP IT MORE BRIEF.

BUT I THINK THAT OUR CONCEPT WOULD BE IT, YOU KNOW, IT IS PRETTY BROAD WITH WITH WHAT OUR DEFINITION OF ARTS AND CULTURE WOULD BE.

OK, I JUST WANT EVERYBODY TO UNDERSTAND.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT A FEW OF OUR ARTS GROUPS, BUT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MANY.

SO I GUESS ALL OF THIS IS TO SAY ONE, WE NEED TO REMEMBER WHAT OUR CHARGE IS THAT THAT THEY ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY COVID.

A LOT OF THE PROJECTS WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MAY NOT QUALIFY.

EVEN THOUGH THERE MAY BE ADDITIONAL MONIES SPEAKING TO THE HOMELESSNESS ISSUE, WHICH WE'VE HAD GOING ON FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, RIGHT NOW, WE ONLY HAVE A FEW ORGANIZATIONS THAT DEAL WITH HOMELESSNESS, FOR EXAMPLE, SOME OF THE CHURCHES SALVATION ARMY GRACE CAMPUS. OPEN DOOR.

AND THEY VERY WELL COULD HAVE BEEN DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY THAT.

BUT WHETHER OR NOT THAT'S GOING TO OPEN A DOOR.

TO DOING SOMETHING IN THE FUTURE ABOUT IT IS VERY QUESTIONABLE IN MY MIND.

AND I THINK SOME PEOPLE THINK, OK, YOU'VE GOT THE MONEY, SPEND IT.

I DON'T WANT TO I DON'T HAVE TO GIVE ANY BACK.

BUT NEITHER DO I WANT SOMEONE KNOCKING ON OUR DOOR SAYING, GIVE IT BACK.

SO THOSE ARE KIND OF MY THOUGHTS.

THANK YOU. GOOD, GOOD. GOOD POINTS.

BACK TO MR. CHRISTIAN. I KIND OF CHANGED MY THOUGHTS AFTER HEARING MS.

[01:00:01]

JOY TALK ABOUT ARTS AND WHAT THAT ACTUALLY MEANS.

THAT'S THAT IS A BROAD TERM.

IT CAN BE INTERPRETED IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS.

AND I AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAID JUST A MINUTE AGO.

IT TALKS ABOUT OUR CULTURE, BUT ALSO I THINK OF ARTS IN A WAY OF THINGS THAT ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF OUR LIFE IN GENERAL.

AND YES, THERE'S A LOT OF AREAS THAT WERE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY COVID, BUT I COULD THINK THAT THAT'S JUST ABOUT ALMOST EVERY AREA OF OUR CITY.

WHICH GOES TO MY POINT IN A MINUTE AGO, WHICH FOLLOWS UP ON OUR PREVIOUS PRESENTATION IN REGARDS TO PARKS.

PARKS IS PART OF THE QUALITY OF LIFE AND PARKS HAVE SUFFERED DUE TO COVID AS WELL, AND WE CONTINUE TO HAVE CITIZENS THAT WANT WOULD LOVE TO SEE AMENITIES IN OUR PARKS THAT I THINK ARE MUCH NEEDED. AND COULD FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY AND WOULD QUALIFY IN MY MY OPINION, TO BE MONEY TO BE ALLOCATED IN OUR PARK SYSTEM.

I'D LIKE TO SEE TO SUGGEST FOR US TO PUT SOME MONEY INTO OUR PARKS DEPARTMENT.

WITH THE IDEA THAT THERE WOULD BE ENOUGH SEED MONEY FOR OUR FOR OUR GRANT WRITERS TO HAVE SOMETHING IN THEIR POCKET TO GO AFTER MORE MATCHING GRANTS AND FUNDS FOR DIFFERENT THINGS THAT WE NEED IN OUR PARKS, SPECIFICALLY AND IN EXISTING PARKS.

LOOK, THERE'S A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT WE FOUND THAT OUR CITIZENS WANT IN OUR SURVEY THAT WE DID SEVERAL YEARS AGO WITH MCALLISTER.

SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT.

AFFECTED DISPROPORTIONATELY.

A LOT OF THINGS WERE AFFECTED DISPROPORTIONATELY AND WERE PUT ON HOLD.

WITH THAT SAID, MR. MAYOR, I'D LIKE TO SEE US PUT SOME SOME OF THIS ARPA MONEY INTO A SPECIAL FUND IN OUR PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT SO THAT WE CAN MOVE FORWARD AND TRY TO GET SOME OF THESE THINGS DONE THAT OUR CITIZENS HAVE WANTED FOR MANY, MANY YEARS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIAN. THE COMMENTS.

MR. GRIFFITH, DO YOU ANYTHING? CLOSURES. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

A. I'D LIKE TO HEAR FROM MR. ATKINSON ON.

THERE'S TWO LISTINGS HERE THAT WE REALLY HAVEN'T DISCUSSED, THAT IS UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE AND FUTURE PUBLIC SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS.

AND I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME OF THOSE WERE, TO YOUR POINT, MS. JOY ARE SOME OF THOSE AFFECTED BY COVID.

I DON'T KNOW THAT, BUT I REALLY REFER TO HIM IN HIS DEPARTMENT'S IF IF THERE'S SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION.

BE GLAD TO TO START IN ON THAT AS IT RELATES TO UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE.

IF WE IDENTIFY AN ELIGIBLE OPPORTUNITY THAT LIKELY WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS SOMETHING THAT'S HOLDING IT BACK, THAT'S KIND OF WHY I HAD THAT HOUSING PROJECT REFERENCED AN INFRASTRUCTURE BUT EXPLAINED IN THE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PIECE OF IT. TO ME, THIS SEEMS IF WE HAD A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY, RELATIVELY SPEAKING, SITTING OUT THERE FOR THAT UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE, THAT REALLY BECOMES THE INITIATIVE TO MAKE SOMETHING ELSE HAPPEN.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT SOMETHING ELSE IS AT THIS MOMENT, BUT I COULD PUT A MAP OF THE CITY UP ON THE WALL RIGHT NOW AND SHOW YOU SEVERAL AREAS, MANY OF WHICH ARE EVEN CURRENTLY ZONED FOR SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL OR FOR OUR TWO TOP RESIDENTIAL.

I DON'T HAVE DON'T HAVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE.

AND IF ALL IT TOOK TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO THE COMMUNITY WAS FOR US TO BE ABLE TO EXTEND A WATER LINE WASTEWATER, PAVE A RESIDENTIAL OR A COLLECTOR LEVEL STREET MAN THAT MAKES A LONG IT MAKES AN IMPACT AT LAST FOR DECADES TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING WE DO IN CURRENT BUDGETS, IT'S REALLY SOMETHING WE'RE NOT SET UP TO DO IN CURRENT BUDGETS. BUT ARPA SPECIFICALLY SETS OUT THAT'S AN ELIGIBLE USE AND A LONG TERM BENEFIT. SO THAT'S KIND OF MY THOUGHTS ON THE UTILITY PIECE OF IT.

FUTURE PUBLIC SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS.

THERE'S ONE THAT I'VE KIND OF GOT IN MIND.

IT'S RELATED TO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT ENHANCING AND MAKING SOME TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES NOT ONLY AVAILABLE TO OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT, BUT REMEMBER THAT.

THE HIGH SCHOOLS THAT HAVE THE MINIATURE FIRE ACADEMIES USE OUR STUFF, THE REGIONAL TRAINING CENTERS USE OUR STUFF.

IT'S LIKELY WE CAN FUND IT IN NEXT YEAR'S BUDGET WITH OUR CASH, AND THAT WILL BE MY FIRST

[01:05:02]

GOAL TO DO THAT.

IF NOT, I JUST WANTED TO HAVE IT UP ON THE TABLE FOR YOU ALL TO KNOW IT'S OUT THERE IN CASE I CAN'T GET TO IT.

THE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ONE MORE TOPIC ON HOMELESSNESS.

THE DIVERSION CENTER IS PART OF THAT SOMEWHAT.

VERY MUCH SO. BUT, BUT BUT YOU THIS IS LISTED INDEPENDENTLY FOR.

I'M NOT SURE THE BOUNDS.

BUT I WOULD SAY THAT.

COULD YOU USE IT FOR? I'M LOOKING FOR WAYS TO USE IT, I'M THINKING OF HOW DO WE HELP HOMELESSNESS? AND I KNOW OUR NUMBERS ARE DOWN SOMEWHAT.

THE LAST I SAW, HOWEVER, WE KNOW IT'S A PROBLEM ACROSS THE CITY.

OUR HOT TEAM HAS DONE A SUPERB JOB AND I APPLAUD THEM.

BUT IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD ADD HOT TEA? I KNOW THIS IS A ONE TIME AND HOT TEAM IS A BUDGET EVERY YEAR WITHIN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, BUT IS IT SOMETHING THAT THAT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT? IT'S CERTAINLY A GOOD AND VALID DISCUSSION.

I THINK, AND UNDERSTAND I AM NOT THE HOMELESSNESS EXPERT AT ALL.

WHEN WE GET TO THE JOINT MEETING, YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM OTHERS THAT ARE A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN I AM. BUT FROM THE LITTLE THAT I'VE LEARNED AND FROM, YOU KNOW, WE WE WERE ABLE TO TAKE A TRIP AND GO LOOK AT TWO OPERATIONS IN TEXAS THAT ARE BOTH CONSIDERED TO BE THE BEST AT WHAT THEY DO.

THEY'RE SOLVING THE SAME PROBLEM FROM TWO DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS, YET THEY'RE BOTH SOLVING THEIR PROBLEMS. THEY'VE DEVELOPED PROGRAMS UNIQUE TO WHERE THEY ARE.

ONE OF THOSE IS FORT WORTH.

ONE OF THOSE IS SAN ANTONIO.

THE THING THAT REALLY HIT ME, THE HOT TEAM IS GREAT.

WHERE DOES WHAT DOES THE HOT TEAM DO? WHAT OPPORTUNITY DO THEY PROVIDE TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WITH WHOM THEY INTERACT? THE HOT TEAMS ARE RECURRING EXPENSE, IT NEEDS TO BE FULLY FUNDED AND AND GROW WITH TIME.

BUT ARE WE MISSING? WHAT DO WE DO WITH THOSE FOLKS? I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT LONG TERM SHELTERING AND THINGS LIKE THAT, BUT YOU KNOW, WE SAW SOME GREAT EXAMPLES IN FORT WORTH.

THEY CALL THEM BY ALL DIFFERENT NAMES THAT I'VE LEARNED A DIVERSION CENTER IN ONE PLACE IS FOR MENTAL HEALTH, WHILE A DIVERSION CENTER IN ANOTHER IS A PLACE TO TAKE A HOMELESS INDIVIDUAL THAT'S IN CRISIS.

SO IF I USE THE WRONG TERM, DON'T DON'T, DON'T HOLD ME TO IT.

BUT WE SAW IN FORT WORTH THE FACILITY THAT FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM, LET ME CALL IT A DAY CENTER A DAY ROOM.

IT WAS A SERVICE CENTER FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS.

IT WAS NOT A SHELTER.

IT WAS COME IN.

IT'S A SAFE PLACE.

IF WE'RE GOING TO CLEAN UP, IF WE'RE GOING TO EAT, IF WE'RE GOING TO WORK ON GETTING OUR SSI BENEFITS, IF WE JUST NEED A PLACE TO HAVE THE MAIL DELIVERED THAT WE CAN COME IN AND OUT OF A SAFE PLACE WITH RULES THAT IF IT WAS A PLACE FOR A MEMBER OF THAT HOT TEAM, NOT LUBBOCK, BUT FOR A MEMBER OF THAT HOT TEAM TO PICK THAT INDIVIDUAL UP AND SAY, OK, LOOK, AND WE'LL TAKE YOU OVER HERE.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO IN, THEY'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU A PLACE TO CLEAN UP.

THEY'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU A PLACE TO EAT THE VARIOUS DIFFERENT OTHER SOCIAL SERVICES THAT ARE FUNDED THROUGH THEIR OWN MECHANISMS. THEY'RE GOING TO BE RIGHT THERE.

WE DON'T HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO GET YOU ACROSS TOWN TO THREE OR FOUR OR FIVE DIFFERENT PLACES TO ACCESS THOSE SERVICES.

OUT OF ALL WE SAW, THAT WAS THE ONE THAT REALLY.

YOU KIND OF HIT HOME THAT IT MADE A LOT OF SENSE, BUT IT WOULD REQUIRE ONE TIME MONEY TO GET IT, TO GET IT STARTED THAT WE DON'T HAVE TODAY.

LET ME ALSO SAY, AND AGAIN, YOU'LL YOU'LL HEAR FROM THE ONES BETTER THAN ME LATER.

LET ME ALSO SAY THAT I DON'T THINK A SINGLE FUNDING SOURCE.

FIXES ANY OF THAT FOR HOMELESSNESS.

I THINK WITH THE CONTINUUM OF CARE EFFORTS WITH OTHER PROGRAMS THAT ARE OUT THERE, WE NEED TO IDENTIFY WHAT THOSE CAN'T FUND AND SUGGEST THE RPA DOLLARS TO FILL THAT.

MY TWO CENTS ON THAT ONE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THE EXPLANATION.

THANK YOU. MR. GRIFFITH.

MS. JOY MS. JOINED EARLIER IN YOUR PRESENTATION.

YOU HAD SUPPORTIVE SERVICES, COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES, SUPPORT SERVICES.

DOES THAT NOT INCLUDE HOMELESSNESS? I THINK THEY'RE VERY RELATED.

OK, BUT WE KIND OF TREATED THEM DIFFERENTLY WAS THE REASON WE SET IT OUT AS ITS OWN ITEM UNDER THAT. OK? OK. ALL RIGHT.

[01:10:01]

SO I THINK I THINK THIS HAS BEEN VALUABLE INPUT, A COUPLE OF COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS, I THINK MS. JOY, YOUR COMMENT ABOUT DISPROPORTIONALITY IS A IS AN INTERESTING ONE.

IT'S IT'S AND I THINK MR COSTELLO WOULD HAVE WOULD AGREE.

BUT WHEN YOU.

AS AS WE STARTED DIGGING INTO THIS, WE FIRST GOT THE GUIDELINES IN THE SUMMER.

THEY WERE THEY WERE SORT OF DIFFICULT TO INTERPRET AND BECAUSE WE'VE GOT MORE INTERPRETATIONS. I THINK YOU WOULD WE'D HAVE NO TROUBLE MAKING THE CASE THAT THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY WAS DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACTED BY COVID, SO IT'S NOT AS MUCH AND WE THINK ABOUT DISPROPORTIONAL IMPACT, WE OFTEN THINK ABOUT SOCIOECONOMIC NEIGHBORHOODS THAT ARE LESS BUT MAYBE LESS HAVE LESS RESOURCES THAN OTHERS.

IN THIS CASE, I THINK THE COMMUNITY COUNTS AND AS WE'VE SEEN THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN INTERPRETATIONS THAT SEEMS TO TO TO BE THE CASE.

BUT I DO THINK YOUR POINT ABOUT JUST THROWING MONEY AT IT, IT'S NOT SOMETHING WE WANT TO DO. I THINK THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO BE VERY MEASURED.

I ALSO THINK YOUR PIECE ABOUT ART, THAT'S A PRETTY BROAD CATEGORY.

AND YOU KNOW, MY THOUGHTS ARE AROUND SMALL BUSINESS AND ART ARE I REALLY WANTED THE ART SECTOR OR THE MAYBE BOARD OF THE PERFORMING ARTS PIECE.

I WANT TO GET TO THOSE FOLKS, THE SMALLEST OF BUSINESS THAT IS THAT HAVEN'T DIDN'T GET THE FILTH THROUGH EVERYTHING LAST YEAR.

I THINK THE SAME THING WITH OUR OUR OUR ARTISTS AND WHETHER THEY BE, YOU KNOW.

ARTISTS THAT, YOU KNOW, MAKE ART OR PERFORM IN VENUES, BUT THOSE THAT REALLY DON'T QUALIFY FOR SHUTTERED VENUES DIDN'T QUALIFY FOR PPP, DIDN'T QUALIFY FOR OUR SMALLEST, YOU KNOW, OUR SMALL BUSINESS RELIEF LAST YEAR.

SO THAT JUST PERSONALLY, THAT'S THOSE ARE THE KIND OF FOLKS THAT I'M MOST INTERESTED IN HEARING HEARING FROM.

WE HAD A WE HAD A REALLY INTRIGUING MEETING WITH ONE OF THE JOB TRAINING.

MR. ATKINSON AT JOB TRAINING GROUPS.

WE'RE WAITING TO HEAR MORE INFORMATION THERE.

I THINK IT'S A PLACE WHERE A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY WOULD GO A LONG WAY JUST TO HELP WHAT THEY'RE TRYING TO DO.

YOU KNOW, I I THINK THE EXAMPLE THAT MR. ATKINSON SHARED ABOUT INFRASTRUCTURE TO PROMOTE HOUSING IN PLACES WHERE WE NEED QUALITY HOUSING, I THINK THAT'S A I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS WE NEVER HAVE BUDGET TO DO.

I THINK IT'S A WONDERFUL IT'S A KIND OF OPPORTUNITY I THINK WE NEED TO LOOK AT.

I MUST SAY THAT.

LIKE, LIKE MR. MASSENGALE, THE DISCUSSION AROUND BROADBAND LAST WEEK WAS PRETTY EYE-OPENING TO ME, AND I THINK YOU GUYS WILL WHEN WE SEE THAT, YOU'LL THINK YOU'LL LEARN A LOT FROM THAT.

THE MENTAL HEALTH AND HOMELESSNESS, EVEN THOUGH RELATED, I THINK, ARE ARE DIFFERENT AND, YOU KNOW, DID A NICE JOB OF CAPTURING THAT.

I KNOW WE'LL HAVE A SPECIFIC REQUEST FOR FOR FOUR TO HELP FUND A DIVERSION CENTER, WHICH I THINK OF IS SORT OF AN EMERGENCY ROOM OR EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT FOR FOR MENTAL HEALTH.

TRY TO KEEP PEOPLE THAT ARE HAVING MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE ISSUES OUT OF THE JAIL AND OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.

NOT THAT MAYBE TO GET THEM TO MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES, MAYBE THEY END UP IN THE HOSPITAL EVENTUALLY, BUT MORE OF A STOP THAT STABILIZATION PLACE WHERE WE CAN PROVIDE SERVICES FOR THEM AND THOSE.

SO I THINK THAT'LL BE INTERESTING.

HOMELESSNESS IS RELATED TO THAT, BUT IT'S CERTAINLY, I THINK, AS MR. GRIFFITH SAID, NOT NOT THE SAME THING.

I I'M A BIG SUPPORTER OF THE IDEA THAT WE CAN STAY UP OR MORE.

FORTIFY IS PROBABLY TOO STRONG A WORD, BUT SHORE UP OUR CYBERSECURITY CAPABILITY, THAT'S A THAT'S PROBABLY A RACE FOR THAT FINISH LINE, AND I THINK IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT. AND I KNOW JAMES IS WORKING HARD ON THAT AND THERE'S NO REASON TO TO RUSH.

WE DO THAT EVERY DAY, BUT WE'LL LOOK FORWARD AT SEEING TO SEEING THAT.

AND AND THEN I FIND, YOU KNOW, EARLY ON IN THIS THESE DOLLARS, THE THE TO TO COLOR, TO COLOR PARKS IN THE CIRCLE, YOU HAD TO BE PRETTY CREATIVE AS IT'S GONE ON.

THAT'S NOT THE CASE. IT'S PRETTY CLEAR THAT PARKS ARE INCLUDED.

I MEAN, THAT'S THERE'S NO PRETTY CLEAR ABOUT IT.

IT'S BLACK AND WHITE THAT IT IS.

AND MR. CHRISTIAN COMMENTS AN INTERESTING ONE, LIKE A SET ASIDE FOR PARKING PARK IMPROVEMENTS OR PARK INVESTMENTS.

IT'S INTERESTING. IT'S THE FIRST TIME THAT'S REALLY HIT OUR OUR RADAR SCREEN.

SO I.

THOSE ARE JUST SOME THOUGHTS YOU'RE GOING TO.

I ALSO THINK THE COUNTY IS GOING TO BE AN AWFUL GOOD, GOOD PARTNER IN THIS.

[01:15:04]

I KNOW I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO BE A GOOD, GOOD PARTNER.

I THINK THEY I THINK THEY HAVE A DESIRE TO HELP NONPROFITS, AND I THINK THEY HAVE A DESIRE TO HELP THE ARTS, BUT MAYBE GO AFTER A DIFFERENT PART OF THE ARTS.

I THINK THEY'D LIKE SOME.

THEY'D LIKE TO GET TO SMALL BUSINESS AND THEY MAY ASK FOR US TO HELP THEM BECAUSE THEY DON'T REALLY HAVE A MAYBE A WAY TO DO THAT.

SO WE'LL HAVE SOME CONTINUE TO HAVE SOME OF THOSE DISCUSSIONS.

WE'RE REALLY EARLY EARLY ON IN THIS, I THINK, AND YOU KNOW, I JUST ENCOURAGE TO ENCOURAGE US TO REMAIN SORT OF PATIENT.

LOOKS LIKE YOU HAD SOMETHING YOU WANTED TO ADD.

I DO HAVE ONE FINAL SLIDE.

WE'VE COVERED A LOT OF IT.

BUT IN COUNCIL, I KNOW YOU ALL ARE WELL AWARE OF THIS.

BUT IF YOU THINK ABOUT LIKE, JUST PICK UP THAT SMALL BUSINESS DEAL IN THE DISCUSSION TODAY, REMEMBER THIS COUNCIL PUT OVER $3 MILLION IN THE HANDS OF THE SMALLEST OF THE SMALL BUSINESSES AND OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO MISSED OUT WHETHER IT WAS ON PPP OR ANYTHING ELSE THAN WE DID THAT YEAR AGO THROUGH WHAT WAS THE FIRST MONEY, THE $14 MILLION MONEY IN THOSE STRUCTURES STILL EXIST.

I THINK IF THAT WAS A PLACE WE CHOSE TO SET DOLLARS AVAILABLE, WE CAN PULL THOSE STRUCTURES OUT, GET THEM REVISED, UPDATED.

SOMEBODY ON THE DICE MADE A GREAT POINT.

WE WANT TO HIT THOSE WHO DIDN'T GET ANYTHING WELL.

THERE'S BEEN TREMENDOUS MONEY HAS COME OUT, AS MS. JOY NOTED, FOR RENTAL ASSISTANCE, MORTGAGE ASSISTANCE, UTILITY ASSISTANCE.

WE ADDED TO THAT, SEPARATE FROM WHAT YOU HEARD A WEEK AGO WITH SOME OF THOSE DOLLARS FROM THE CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUND.

WE SET ASIDE MONEY FOR VERY SMALL BUSINESSES FOR SOLE PROPRIETORSHIPS, JOINT PARTNERSHIPS THAT DIDN'T QUALIFY FOR ANY OF THE FIRST ROUND OF THE FEDERAL MONEY.

IF YOU CHOSE TO REAP RESTART THOSE PROGRAMS AND WE COULD ADJUST THOSE, BRING THEM BACK TO COUNSEL, AND MAYBE YOUR FIRST CRITERIA IS IF YOU RECEIVED X Y Z, YOU'RE GOING TO GO TO THE END OF THE LINE FOR THIS IF YOU DID NOT GET X, Y OR Z, IF YOU MISSED ALL THOSE PRIOR OPPORTUNITIES. YOU COULD COME IN AND BE CONSIDERED HERE, SO.

IF YOU REMEMBER, THOSE DOLLARS WENT OUT THE DOOR FROM COUNCIL APPROVAL TO PEOPLE WALKING INTO THIS BUILDING TO PICK UP CHECKS.

AND ABOUT 15 DAYS.

AND AS I RECALL, WE WE NEVER DELEGATED THE FINANCIAL PIECE OF IT.

WE JUST ASK SOMEBODY TO HELP US OPERATIONALLY MAKE THOSE DECISIONS.

IS THAT CORRECT? MONEY STAYED IN OUR ACCOUNT.

THAT IS CORRECT, MAYOR. THE CITY COUNCIL BASICALLY APPROVED CONTRACTS WITH OTHERS TO TAKE APPLICATIONS TO GRADE TO SCORE THE APPLICATIONS BASED ON CRITERIA THAT WERE IN OUR AGREEMENT. BUT THEY THEN SENT THOSE SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS BACK OVER HERE.

THE DOLLARS NEVER LEFT THE CITY OF LUBBOCK TILL WE PUT THEM IN THE INDIVIDUAL'S HAND, WHICH YOU THINK IS IMPORTANT SINCE WE'RE WE'RE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THAT.

THAT'S WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT.

AND OF COURSE, THAT THAT FIRST PROGRAM, THE CRF MONEYS THAT'S BEEN THROUGH A COMPLETE SEVEN STEP STATE AUDIT.

WE KNOW THAT MODEL WORKS MS. JOY WHERE WE GET OFF OF THIS TOPIC.

THERE WAS A MENTION OF YOUTH, YOUTH AT RISK, YOUTH AT RISK YOUTH.

YOU KNOW, WHAT WE FOUND ON THE MENTAL HEALTH SIDE IS THAT THE SOONER WE CAN HELP CHILDREN WHO HAVE ISSUES EARLY.

THE BETTER CHANCE WE HAVE OF RESOLVING THOSE, AND I THINK THE SAME THING IS TRUE AND INTERMIXED, SOMETIMES WITH THE MENTAL HEALTH, THE EARLIER WE CAN GET TO THEM, THEN HOPEFULLY CHIEF MITCHELL AND EVERYBODY DOESN'T DEAL WITH THEM LATER.

AND I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW WE'RE GOING TO GO ABOUT THAT.

BUT TO ME, THERE'S A MYRIAD OF PARTNERSHIPS THAT WE NEED TO BE LOOKING AT WITH THESE KIDDOS. I KNOW ONE GROUP THAT WORKS SPECIFICALLY WITH FIFTH GRADERS, VERY SMALL OPERATION, BUT THEY DO IT EVERY YEAR.

THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF MONEY, BUT WE REALLY DO NEED.

I MEAN, THE GANG STUFF JUST STARTS WAY TOO EARLY.

AND SO THAT'S ONE AREA THAT I REALLY WOULD LIKE FOR US TO TAKE A HARDER LOOK AT.

AND MAYBE IF SOME OF THESE GROUPS THAT ARE TRYING TO DO THAT HAD SOME MONEY, THEN MAYBE THEY COULD DO DO MORE.

LET'S PUT IT LIKE THAT. YEAH, VERY, VERY GOOD POINTS.

OK? MR. ATKINSON WANT YOU COVER THIS LAST SLIDE, AND WE'LL MOVE TO OUR FINAL TOPIC FOR WORK SESSION GAY COUNCIL.

THESE ARE THE FOUR TOPICS THAT WERE IN THE PRESENTATION THAT WE WOULD SUGGEST BE THE FOUR TOPICS COVERED AT THE JOINT MEETING BETWEEN THIS COUNCIL AND THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT. WE'RE TRYING TO STRUCTURE THAT MEETING TO BE AS CLOSE TO A 90 MINUTE PERIOD OF TIME AS WE CAN. THE MEETING WILL BE HELD HERE IN YOUR CHAMBERS.

[01:20:05]

EACH OF THESE FOUR TOPICS WE WOULD BRING IN A PRESENTER TO KICK IT OFF.

SO IF WE TALK ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTH, THAT'S GOING TO BE MS. WELLS AND MR. HOWERTON WOULD GO VERY QUICKLY, LEADING INTO THE DISCUSSION BETWEEN AND AMONG THE TWO BODIES BROADBAND EXPANSION.

MS. GABIRO THAT I MENTIONED EARLIER HAS AGREED TO TRAVEL BACK TO LUBBOCK TO KIND OF BE THE KICKOFF TO THAT.

WE'LL HAVE OUR OWN JAMES BROWN KIND OF DISCUSS WHAT THE PILOT PROJECT WOULD LOOK LIKE IF WE CHOOSE TO PROCEED THAT THE MENTAL HEALTH COLLABORATIVE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT JAMES BROWN, THE GODFATHER OF TECHNOLOGY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT JAMES BROWN, THE HARDEST WORKING MAN IN ROCK AND ROLL.

OK. JUST MAKING SURE I GOT THAT RIGHT.

OK, GOOD.

SEE YOU BACK THERE. HE'S BACK IN THE.

I GOT IT. I GOT HIM BACK THERE.

YEAH. MENTAL HEALTH COLLABORATIVE, THE DIVERSION CENTER.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM MS. LAWSON TO KIND OF KICK THAT ONE OFF.

AND THEN ON HOMELESSNESS, I EXPECT THAT'S GOING TO BE MS. MURPHY AND MR. HOWERTON TO TEE IT UP AND THEN DISCUSSION AMONG THE BODY.

SO COUNCIL FOR GOOD.

WITH THIS, I'LL NEED TO GO MEET WITH THE COUNTY AND KIND OF GET THEIR SIDE OF IT STARTED.

I DON'T THINK THEY'LL BE SURPRISED BY THIS SET OF TOPICS THAT THEY'RE BROAD.

I THINK WE HAVE GENERAL AGREEMENT.

SO OK. OK.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE INPUT.

LOOKS LIKE MR. CHRISTIAN HAS ONE MORE COMMENT.

JUST A QUICK LITTLE COMMENT, ESPECIALLY IN MENTAL HEALTH COLLABORATION INVERSION CENTER AS I'M HOLDING MY SOURCE OF SOLUTIONS DRINKER.

I WOULD HOPE THAT THAT CONVERSATION WOULD ALSO INCLUDE ADDICTION AND RECOVERY.

THANK YOU. OK, COUNSEL, I THINK WE, AS PROMISED, WE'VE CONTINUED TO TALK ABOUT THIS.

WE'RE DOING IT PUBLIC. WE WANT PEOPLE'S INPUT.

SOME OF YOU IN THE ROOM TODAY PROBABLY HAVE IDEAS BASED UPON WHAT YOU HEARD.

DON'T, DON'T BE.

DON'T BE SHY. OK, ALL RIGHT.

LET'S MOVE TO OUR OUR FINAL ITEM FOR WORK SESSION.

[3. Unified Development Code Update]

AND THAT'S AN UPDATE FROM OUR UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT CODE PROCESS.

AND I THINK THAT UPDATES ARE GOING TO COME FROM THE COMMITTEE.

IS THAT IS THAT NOT CORRECT? MR. ATKINSON MS. JOY. THE LAST TIME WE MADE A PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT WHAT? WHEN THE UNIFORM DEVELOPMENT CODE WOULD BE ADOPTED, I THINK WE HAD IT AT THE END OF DECEMBER OF TWO THOUSAND TWENTY ONE.

THAT HAS CHANGED.

AND UNDER THE CURRENT PLAN.

UH, IT WOULD BE ADOPTED MARCH 22ND OF TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

NOW, THE CONCERN THAT'S BEEN EXPRESSED BY THE PUBLIC IS THEY WANT TO BE SURE THAT BEFORE WE DO ANYTHING.

PERMANENT THAT THEY HAVE PLENTY OF PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT AND AND THEY WILL HAVE.

SO FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT WE WERE TRYING TO DO THIS BY THE END OF DECEMBER, RELAX, WE'RE NOT. THE MARCH 22ND, 2020 TO DATE COULD CHANGE.

BUT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT CHANGED OR NOT, THERE WILL STILL BE THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT.

SO WE'RE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING WITH THE UNIFORM DEVELOPMENT CODE UNTIL WE HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE PUBLIC TO GIVE MORE INPUT THAN THAN IT'S ALREADY GIVEN.

YOU KNOW, WE'VE HAD THE OPEN HOUSE HERE.

WE'VE HAD GROUPS THAT MEET TO DISCUSS CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE UNIFORMED DEVELOPMENT CODE AND WE ARE LISTENING TO EVERYBODY ABOUT.

THE UNIFORM DEVELOPMENT CODE, SO YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT, NO, IT WILL NOT BE ADOPTED IN DECEMBER OF TWO THOUSAND TWENTY ONE, AND THAT WAS THE DATE THAT WAS GIVEN OUT EARLIER.

CURRENT. PLAN IS MARCH.

UH. 22ND OF TWENTY TWENTY TWO.

BUT THAT LIKEWISE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE, BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT IS CHANGED FORWARD OR BACKWARDS. YOU WILL HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT AND OPPORTUNITY FOR PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT.

OK. IS THAT CLEAR? I HOPE. OK.

THANKS. COUNCILMAN, ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ON THAT? MY ONLY COMMENT WOULD BE TWO COMMENTS.

I'M VERY THANKFUL FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.

IT'S I KNOW IT'S PAINSTAKING AT BEST.

I WOULD REALLY ADVOCATE FOR ADOPTION IN FEBRUARY INSTEAD OF MARCH.

[01:25:04]

I KNOW IT'LL TAKE A LITTLE EXTRA WORK ON A MS. JOINT. I'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS. THIS IS NOT A SURPRISE.

I JUST THINK THAT I THINK THIS COUNCIL DESERVES TO MAKE THAT CREDIT OR TO THAT DECISION.

AND I THINK THAT THE CLOSER YOU GET TO AN ELECTION, THE MORE LIKELY WE ARE TO MAYBE POSTPONE IT AFTER THE ELECTION.

AND I WOULD LIKE FOR US TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THAT DECISION.

THAT'S MY ONLY ENCOURAGEMENT, AND I'VE BEEN CONSISTENT IN THAT REGARD.

AND I MR. CHRISTIAN. YOU HAVE A COMMENT. YES, MR. MAYOR, I JUST WANT TO ENCOURAGE.

CITIZENS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK UP ABOUT THIS SITUATION AND WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON ON, YOU KNOW, UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT CODES.

IT'S BEEN AN INTERESTING JOURNEY AND I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE THAT WE COVER EVERYTHING FROM PLYWOOD, LEGS TO CARPORTS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

AND THAT'S A LOT OF STUFF.

AND I DON'T THINK THAT THE AVERAGE CITIZEN UNDERSTANDS THAT IT'S NOT JUST THE CHANGES OR THE REVISIONS OR WHATEVER WE DO TO THIS, TO THE UNIFIED DEVELOPMENT CODES.

IT'S NOT JUST GOING TO AFFECT OUR DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY, IT'S GOING TO AFFECT THE AVERAGE CITIZEN AND THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT.

SO PLEASE, THEY NEED TO COME OUT AND VOICE THEIR OPINION ON THESE THINGS.

SO WHEN WE DO CLOSE THE BOOK ON THIS THING, WE CAN SAY, WE HEARD YOU.

WE GAVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK, SO PLEASE SPEAK.

AND WE NEED THAT CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT DESPERATELY WHEN WE DO HAVE THESE OPEN HOUSES OR TOWN HALLS, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL. THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIAN. OK, COUNCILMAN, ANYTHING ELSE ON ITEM ONE THREE? OK. KELLY'S DOWN THERE LIKE SHE'S READY TO GO IN CASE WE HAD SOMETHING FOR.

WE NEEDED SOME LEGAL.

ONE OF OUR LEGAL EXPERTS ON THIS AND SHE'S OK.

LET'S GO TO BEFORE WE GO TO EXECUTIVE SESSION, LET'S LOOK AT OUR POLLS FOR TONIGHT.

WE'VE GOT A PULL ON ITEM SIX FIVE COUNCILMAN.

IF IT'S OK, IF YOU WILL, WILL PULL SIX, FOUR AND SIX FIVE.

THOSE ARE RELATED. THOSE ARE WHAT ONE IS.

WE'VE GOT A QUICK PRESENTATION ON THAT ONE'S INNER LOCAL FOR WASTEWATER ONCE FOR WHOLESALE WATER. MR. MR. CHRISTIAN ARE YOU OK WITH DOING BOTH OF THOSE? IS THAT ALL RIGHT? OK.

SIX, FOUR AND SIX FIVE.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANY OTHER POOLS, IS THAT IS THAT CORRECT, COUNSEL? OK, SO THE COUNCIL WILL HOLD EXECUTIVE SESSION TODAY FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONSULTING WITH

[2. Executive Session]

CITY STAFF REGARDING PENDING OR CONTEMPLATED LITIGATION OR SETTLEMENT AGREEMENTS, AND TO HOLD CONSULTATIONS WITH ATTORNEYS UNDER SECTION FIVE FIVE ONE ZERO SEVEN, ONE OF THE TEXAS GOVERNMENT CODE.

IT IS THREE POINT THIRTY THREE.

WE COULD NOT DO OUR WORK WITHOUT THE WORK THAT THEY DO.

THEY DO IT FOR FREE.

THEY THEY DO IT.

THEY GIVE GIVE WITH, YOU KNOW, GOOD ATTITUDES.

AND THEY HELP US MAKE REALLY CONSEQUENTIAL AND I THINK EFFECTIVE DECISIONS THAT GUIDE THE GROWTH OF OUR COMMUNITY.

SO WE WANT TO HONOR THEM TONIGHT.

WE'RE GOING TO GET A QUICK PICTURE AND THEY WILL GIVE ONE MORE BIG THANK YOU TO THIS ENTIRE GROUP. OK.

MAKE YOU LOOK BETTER HERE, TAKE A PICTURE.

ONE MORE THING. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, GUYS.

THANK YOU. YOU BELIEVE THAT WINTER IS ALL GROWN UP AND WE DON'T SEE BOARD.

THANK YOU, WESLEY. GOOD

SO IN FACT, IT'S ALL ZONING.

[5. Minutes]

OUR MINUTES ARE AT NUMBER FIVE ON OUR AGENDA.

OPEN THE FLOOR FOR A MOTION TO BEGIN CONSIDERATION OF THOSE MINUTES.

[6. Consent Agenda - Items considered to be routine are enacted by one motion without separate discussion. If the City Council desires to discuss an item, the item is removed from the Consent Agenda and considered separately.]

IT BEGINS WITH ITEM SIX ONE ON PAGE TWENTY SIX.

IT IS THE CONSENT AGENDA ITEMS THAT ARE CONSIDERED TO BE ROUTINE OR ENACTED BY ONE MOTION WITHOUT SEPARATE DISCUSSION.

HOWEVER, IF THE CITY COUNCIL DESIRES TO DISCUSS AN ITEM, THAT ITEM IS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA IS CONSIDERED SEPARATELY.

TONIGHT WE HAVE ONE POLL COUNCIL THAT'S ITEM SIX NINE.

IT'S ON PAGE 108.

BEFORE WE GET A MOTION ON THIS, LET'S GET A BRIEFING ON THIS FROM MR. ATKINSON OR MR. WEAVER, WHICHEVER.

ALL RIGHT. WE'LL START WITH MR. ATKINSON. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

COUNCIL, I'LL TAKE THE EASY PART, AND MR. WEAVER WILL FIELD ALL THE DIFFICULT QUESTIONS FOR US TONIGHT.

ITEM SIX POINT NINE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CITY OF LUBBOCK TO JOIN THE OPIOID LITIGATION SETTLEMENT THAT'S BEEN NEGOTIATED BY THE STATE OF TEXAS.

SO OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE AND A NEGOTIATING GROUP THAT REPRESENTED VARIOUS TEXAS POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS HAS ENTERED INTO AN AGREEMENT THAT WILL RESOLVE A PORTION OF THESE ONGOING OPIOID LAWSUITS THAT ARE NOT JUST IN TEXAS, THEY'RE THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU TONIGHT IS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CITY OF LUBBOCK TO JOIN INTO THE CURRENT SETTLEMENT.

THE CURRENT SETTLEMENT COVERS TO WHAT THEY CALL SUPPLY CHAIN PARTICIPANTS, AND ONE MANUFACTURER OR NOW FORMER MANUFACTURER OF OPIOIDS, SHOULD LUBBOCK CHOOSE TO JOIN THIS SETTLEMENT? YOU WOULD CONSIDER IN FAVORABLY PAST THE ITEM THAT YOU HAVE TONIGHT.

WE WILL THEN RETURN THE SIGNED SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT BACK TO THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL COUNSEL.

THIS IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF TEXAS.

AND IN FACT, IF YOU SAW THE CLIPPING SERVICES TODAY, YOU'VE SEEN SEVERAL OTHER LOCAL JURISDICTIONS WHO HAVE JOINED.

THE SETTLEMENT IS VERY PARTICULAR AT THE MOMENT AS TO THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE FUNDS.

LUBBOCK ELIGIBLE SHARE RIGHT NOW IS THREE HUNDRED AND NINETEEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND SIXTY SEVEN DOLLARS.

THAT MAY NOT BE THE FINAL SHARE.

IT CERTAINLY COULD GO UP IF THERE'S MORE IN THE FUTURE.

DO NOT EXPECT THAT IT WILL GO DOWN.

[01:40:01]

NOTE THAT THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS UNTIL THE 1ST OF JANUARY TO DO WHAT IT'S DOING, WHICH IS GOING AROUND TO ALL OF THE CITIES AND COUNTIES WHO ARE ELIGIBLE AND SEEING IF WE CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE.

IF ENOUGH OF US DO, THE THRESHOLD HAS BEEN PASSED.

THESE FUNDS THEN GO BACK TO THE COURT, COME TO WHAT'S CALLED THE TEXAS OPIOID COUNCIL, AND IT GOES THROUGH THE DISTRIBUTION PROCESS.

NOTE THAT LUBBOCK HAS NO COST ASSOCIATED WITH THIS, ONLY AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE A PORTION OF THOSE SETTLEMENT FUNDS.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL STOP, AND MYSELF OR MR. WEAVER WILL TAKE QUESTIONS.

OK, THANK YOU, MR. ATKINSON.

LET'S GET LET'S GO TO COUNCIL.

LET'S GET A MOTION TO BEGIN CONSIDERATION OF ITEM SIX NINE.

THANK YOU, MR. GRIFFITH. THANK YOU, MS. JOY. LET'S GO TO MR. CHRISTIAN MR. CHRISTIAN. YOU HAVE QUESTIONS.

YOUR COMMENTS? ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THIS ONE COUNCIL? OK, WE'VE GOT A MOTION ON THE FLOOR TO APPROVE ITEM SIX NINE.

THANK YOU FOR THAT EXPLANATION.

MR. ATKINSON ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.

PLEASE SAY HI. ALL RIGHT.

ANY OPPOSED BY THAT SAME SIDE, THAT MOTION CARRIES SEVEN TO ZERO.

WE WILL NOW MOVE TO THE REGULAR AGENDA.

IT BEGINS WITH ITEM SEVEN TWO ON PAGE 187 COUNCIL.

IF I WANT TO GO, I'M GOING TO ASK FOR YOUR INDULGENCE ON SOMETHING.

I THINK IT WOULD BE NICE IF WE SKIP DOWN TO SEVEN 12.

[12. Public Hearing - Planning: Consider a request for Zone Case 3432-A, a request of Dwain Lane for Carolyn Lane Musgrave, for a Specific Use for an Event Center, on property zoned Commercial District (C-4) and Local Retail District (C-2) at 1801 19th Street and 1904 and 1906 Avenue R, located south of 19th Street and west of Avenue R, Lane Addition, Block 1, Lots 1, 2, 5 and 6, and consider an ordinance.]

REAL QUICK. AND THIS IS YOU GUYS WILL REMEMBER THIS CASE.

WE'VE HAD SOME. WE HAVE SOME CITIZENS WHO BROUGHT THIS TO US.

WE REALIZED WE HAD A LITTLE HOLE OR A LITTLE PROBLEM IN OUR CODE OF ORDINANCES.

WE'VE GONE BACK AND FIX THAT.

AND I'D LIKE TO MR..

I ASK HIM TO BRIEF US ON THAT FIRST DO A PUBLIC HEARING ON THAT ONE AND MAYBE DISPENSE OF THAT IF THAT'S OK WITH COUNSEL.

ALL RIGHT. I KNOW THAT'S A LITTLE OUT OF ORDINARY, BUT BRIAN, CAN YOU DO THAT WITHOUT A LOT OF PROBLEM? THERE IS RIGHT THERE.

OK? THIRTY FOUR THIRTY TWO A CASE SEVEN 12 ON PAGE THREE FIFTY SIX CASE THIRTY FOUR POINT THIRTY TWO A FOUR CAROLYN LANE MUSGRAVE, REPRESENTED TONIGHT BY DUANE LANE.

THE SITE IS CURRENTLY ZONED TWO AND C FOUR WITH C TWO TO THE EAST, NORTH AND WEST AND R TWO TO THE SOUTHEAST AND SOUTHWEST.

AND C FOUR DIRECTLY SOUTH.

HERE WE SHOW THE SUBJECT SIDE AND SOME OF THE SURROUNDING VIEWS.

THE PROPOSED SPECIFIC USE FOR AN EVENT CENTER IS IN CONFORMANCE WITH THE ZONING ORDINANCE AS IN IT AND IS APPROPRIATE ADJACENT TO OTHER COMMERCIAL USES THAT ALREADY EXIST.

I MEAN, IF YOU'LL RECALL, THIS IS A NEWLY CREATED LAND USE IN OUR ZONING CODE, AND THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THREE CASES YOU'LL SEE FOR EVENT CENTERS TONIGHT.

THE PROPOSED CHANGE IS CONSISTENT WITH SURROUNDING AREA AND IS LOCATED ALONG A MINOR ARTERIAL 19 STREET, WHICH ARE KNOWN TO HANDLE HIGH INTENSITIES OF TRAFFIC.

STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THIS REQUEST IN THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL BY A UNANIMOUS VOTE.

OK, THANK YOU, MR. ISOM.

COUNCILMAN, IF IT PLEASES, YOU WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS ONE.

GET IT DONE. SO I'LL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING ON ON ITEM SEVEN 12 AND ASK ANYONE THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK EITHER IN FAVOR OR OPPOSITION TO PLEASE COME FORWARD.

OH, WELCOME BACK, MR. LANE. I'M NOT JUST ONE LANE AND COUNCIL LADIES AND MAN, THEY VOTED YOU.

HERE WE ARE AGAIN.

I'M FOURTH GENERATION.

THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN IN OUR FAMILY FOR COURSE, FOR GENERATIONS NOW.

ORIGINALLY, IT WAS KAPLAN'S STEAKHOUSE AND I HAD STEAK AND CHICKEN.

IT WAS THE PRIMARY RESTAURANT IN LUBBOCK, AND ON SUNDAYS THEY HAD TURKEY AND DRESSING NICE AND DOWN THROUGH THE YEARS, IT'S CHANGED.

IN THE LAST 20 YEARS OR SO, IT'S BEEN A BAR AND CLUB.

AND SO THEN WHENEVER THE SUPERMARKETS AND EVERYBODY OPENED UP TO SELLING THE BEER AND THE WINE WHERE THEIR BUSINESS WENT TO POT, AND SO THEY CLOSED IT.

SO I WENT OVER.

I'M CO-OWNER WITH MY COUSIN, CAROLYN LANE, AND I WENT OVER AND CLEANED IT ALL UP AND HAULED ALL THE TRASH OFF AND DID A LOT OF LEVELING AND FILLING AND EVERYTHING.

[01:45:02]

AND THEN I DID A LEASE PURCHASE.

TO SANDRA, AND THEY WENT IN AND SPENT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND REHABBING IT AND.

BUT THEY GOT TO JUST AS A CHINESE VIRUS HIT, AND THEN THEY COULDN'T HAVE ANY EVENTS AT ALL FOR A YEAR, AND THEN THEY OPENED IT BACK UP AND WAS ABLE TO.

THEY'LL START DOING THE EVENTS, AND THEN WE FOUND OUT THAT SAY TWO LOTS, ONE AND TWO WERE RESOLVED TO SEE TWO AND THREE AND FOUR LOST FIVE AND SIX OR C4.

AND SO WE CAME BEFORE Y'ALL BACK IN THE SPRING, EARLY SUMMER AND TO SEE IF WE COULD GET LOTS ONE IN TO SEE FOUR.

BUT YOU ALL FELT LIKE THAT.

THAT WASN'T THE THING TO DO AND TO GO AHEAD AND TO GET TO SEE TWO SPECIAL USE.

ROLLING ON IT, WHICH WE WENT BEFORE THE BOARD THURSDAY, AND THEY APPROVED IT UNANIMOUSLY.

THE PROPOSED ZONING IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE FUTURE OF LAND USE MAP AND THE PRINCIPLES OF THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

IT IS ALSO IN CONFORMANCE WITH THE ZONING ORDINANCE AND APPROPRIATE NEXT TO ADJACENT DEVELOPMENT. AS THE EVENT CENTER USE WAS NEWLY CREATED AND THERE IS ADDITIONAL C4 FOR ZONING IN PLACE TO THE WEST.

THE PROPOSED ZONE CHANGE LOCATION IS A LONG 19TH STREET, WHICH IS DESIGNATED AS A PRINCIPAL ARTERIAL BY THE MASTER THOROUGHFARE PLAN, AND ARTERIALS ARE INTENDED TO MOVE HIGH VOLUMES OF TRAFFIC AT RELATIVELY HIGH SPEEDS.

THE STAFF RECOMMENDED APPROVAL OF THIS REQUEST AND THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL BY A VOTE OF FIVE TO TWO.

QUESTIONS FROM MR EISEN.

LET'S TRY SOME BACK UP YOUR SLIDES FOR JUST A MINUTE, AND JUST LET'S MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE HERE.

KEEP GOING BACK. OK, WE'LL RIGHT THERE.

SO WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS WHEN WE WHEN WE THINK ABOUT THIS PROPERTY, EVEN THOUGH THESE BUILDINGS ARE.

CONNECTED. PART OF IT'S ZONED A DIFFERENT WAY.

CORRECT. THAT'S CORRECT.

OK, SO WE'LL MAKE CERTAIN THAT WE GOT THAT RIGHT.

YES, SIR. IT'S QUITE A HISTORY.

IT HAS OF OF A ZONING.

I WAS READING BACK TO THE DIFFERENT WAYS THIS HAS BEEN ZONED.

OVER THE YEARS. MS. PATTERSON HARRIS. THANK YOU, MR. ISOM. THIS PARTICULAR LOCATION HAS COME BEFORE PLANNING AND ZONING ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION THIS YEAR.

YES. COULD YOU TALK TO US ABOUT THAT AND BACK US UP TO THAT THAT POINT? THE ORIGINAL CASE, AND YOU CAN SEE IT IN THE NOTIFICATION MAP CAME IN FOR A MUCH LARGER AREA, BUT IT WAS THE APPLICANT DID NOT INTEND FOR THE ENTIRE AREA TO BE PART OF THE CASE.

SO THEY TOOK IT BACK, GOT MEETS IN BOUNDS OR, YOU KNOW, MADE A MUCH SMALLER AREA OUT OF IT, WHICH IS THE AREA THAT WE HAVE NOW.

AND THEN WHEN IT WENT TO PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION, THAT WAS AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE EVENT CENTER USE WAS BEING CREATED.

AND SO THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION ASKED HER IF SHE WOULD POSTPONE FOR.

I BELIEVE IT WAS A MONTH OR TWO FOR THAT USED TO BE CREATED.

AND SHE DID AND CAME BACK AT THE LAST MEETING.

WELL, THERE ARE SOME CHANGES NOW THAT ARE DIFFERENT FROM.

FROM THE ORIGINAL CASE, IT'S JUST THE LAND AREA YOU CAN SEE THERE'S A PARKING LOT ALONG 20TH STREET THAT WAS ORIGINALLY INCLUDED, BUT THAT'S NO LONGER BEING INCLUDED IN THE REQUEST. NOW IT'S JUST THE TWO LOTS OR A LOT ON 19.

YEAH. AND SO.

RIGHT NOW, NONE OF THIS IS DEVELOPED, CORRECT? CORRECT. AND I THINK ONE OF THE NEIGHBORS TRYING TO IT WAS A LONG MEETING, BUT I THINK HIS DISCUSSION WAS THAT THE GARDEN OFFICE REQUIREMENTS WOULD CAUSE THE DEVELOPMENT TO LOOK MUCH MORE SIMILAR TO THE HOMES.

IF YOU'VE SEEN OUR GARDEN GARDEN OFFICE STANDARDS WHERE THE COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT MORE INTENSE, AND THAT WAS ONE OF HIS BIG CONCERNS.

BUT IT'S NOT DEVELOPED.

WE'VE HAD ANOTHER CASE WHERE WE ACTUALLY HAD DEVELOPMENTS, WHERE SOMEONE WANTED TO PUT SOMETHING MORE MORE LENIENT, I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY IN THE MIDDLE, BUT THIS IS NOT DEVELOPED, SO THIS ONE'S A HARD ONE FOR ME.

IT'S GOT HHI RUN ACROSS THE STREET, ACROSS THE STREET.

BIG TIRE DISTRIBUTION FACILITY.

AND HERE ARE SOME VIEWS OF THE SUBJECT SITE AND ITS SURROUNDINGS.

THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP DOES DESIGNATE THIS AREA FOR COMMERCIAL LAND USES.

AND WHILE THE A.1 DISTRICT DOES NOT CONFORM TO THE FUTURE OF LAND USE MAP DESIGNATION, THOUGH, IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED APPROPRIATE AND AN INTERSECTION NODE, ACCORDING TO THE FUTURE LAND USE COMPATIBILITY MATRIX.

NOISE AND TRAFFIC WERE BIG CONCERNS.

THEN AT THE PUBLIC HEARING, WE HAD FOLKS THAT CAME OUT AND DISCUSSED PROPERTY MAINTENANCE AND JUNK VEHICLES BEING STORED ON SITE.

HERE WE SHOW THE SUBJECT SITE OUTLINE IN ORANGE, GENERALLY LOCATED WEST OF IDU ROAD AND NORTH OF EAST THIRD PLACE.

THE SITE IS CURRENTLY ZONED OUR ONE WITH OUR ONE TO THE NORTHEAST, SOUTH AND WEST IN GENERAL, RETAIL AND COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS BEYOND THAT.

THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP DOES IDENTIFY THIS PROPERTY AS COMMERCIAL.

AND HERE WE HAVE SOME VIEWS OF THE SUBJECT SITE AND ITS SURROUNDINGS.

THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP DOES DESIGNATE THE SUBJECT PROPERTY FOR COMMERCIAL AND RETAIL USES, AND THE PROPOSED ZONE CHANGE TO SEE TWO WOULD BRING THIS PROPERTY INTO CONFORMANCE WITH THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP.

THE PROPOSED CHANGE IS CONSISTENT WITH SURROUNDING AREA.

THERE ARE ADDITIONAL C FOUR AND C THREE DISTRICTS OF LONG ISLAND ROAD AND ADEOLU ROAD IS CLASSIFIED AS A MINOR ARTERIAL AT THIS LOCATION, BUT TRANSITIONS INTO A FREEWAY JUST NORTHEAST OF THE SUBJECT SITE.

STAFF RECOMMENDS APPROVAL OF THE REQUEST IN THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION RECOMMENDED APPROVAL BY A VOTE OF FOUR TO THREE.

MR. ISD MS. SAID, I THINK HE SAID THAT IT'S SURROUNDED BY HOUR ONE, THE ZONING IN AREA IS OUR ONE. NOT ALL OF THE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA IS CONSISTENT WITH THE ZONING.

SO IS THAT NON-CONFORMING? IS IT GRANDFATHERED? IS IT AS THOUGH IT IS BECAUSE YOU'RE JUST EAST OF IT? NORTHEAST AND NORTH OF IT IS A HUGE YARD FOR A DEMOLITION COMPANY OR SOMETHING, AS I RECALL. AND I BELIEVE ONE OF THE NEIGHBORS THAT SPOKE OUT WAS A LOT JUST TO THE WEST OF THIS. SO THERE'S SOME ON THE WESTERN SIDE THAT ARE DEVELOPED AS SINGLE FAMILY HOMES.

SOME DEVELOPMENT JUST TO THE EAST OF THIS THAT ARE MORE COMMERCIAL.

AND I BELIEVE AT THIS LOT THERE HAD BEEN AN ONGOING AUTO SERVICE USE.

FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, RIGHT? BUT THAT'S THE QUESTION.

WHETHER IT WAS ONGOING OR NOT, THEY NOBODY ASKED THAT QUESTION, AND I THINK THE PROPONENT ACTUALLY SAID.

THAT THEY HADN'T BEEN OPERATING IT AS AS THE AS THE USE THAT HAD BEEN THERE, BUT NOBODY ASK AND IF IT'S BEEN IF IT'S NOT BEEN USED FOR A YEAR, THEN IT WOULD LOSE ITS NONCONFORMITY. IT LOSES IT, ITS NON-CONFORMING OR ITS YEAH, IT'S STATUS.

YES. AND SO IT IT IT BECOMES OUR ONE AGAIN.

THE ZONING IS ALREADY ALREADY.

BUT THE LAND USE THAT AUTO SERVICE USE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE.

YEAH. AND WHAT HE PROPOSED WAS TO PUT IN A SMOKE SHOP.

I'M HAVING A REAL HARD TIME UNDERSTANDING HOW THAT COULD BE.

A CONTINUED USE.

FROM WHAT HE HAD PREVIOUSLY.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR LOOKSLIKE, MS. PATTERSON HARRIS HAS A QUESTION.

IF, LET'S SAY THE THE ZONE CHANGE IS ALLOWED, THERE WOULDN'T BE ANYTHING WE COULD DO ABOUT THAT, THAT ACTUAL FACILITY AS IT IS RIGHT, WOULD THE EXISTING BUILDINGS?

[02:15:03]

YES. I MEAN, OTHER THAN CODE ENFORCEMENT ISSUES, BUT IF IT IF IT IF IT CONTINUED TO BE NONCONFORMING, IT COULD CONTINUE TO OPERATE.

IF IT CEASED OPERATION FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, THEN IT SHOULD NOT BE OPERATING.

OK. BECAUSE WHAT I'M ASKING IS.

THIS INDIVIDUAL IS SEEKING TO PUT A SMOKE SHOP.

IF THE ZONE CHANGES ALLOWED AND THEY'RE ALLOWED TO DO THAT.

THERE'S NOTHING THAT WE COULD DO OUTSIDE OF CODES.

TO SAY THAT THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DONE TO BRING THIS FACILITY UP TO A DECENT STANDARD AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT THEY COULD OPEN IF THEY OPEN ADDITIONAL BUSINESSES, THEY'D BE REQUIRED TO BRING IT INTO BUILDING CODE COMPLIANCE.

IF THEY WENT IN OPEN A NEW BUSINESS IN THERE, THEY'D HAVE TO BRING ANYTHING UP TO NEW BUILDING CODE STANDARDS.

BUT IF THEY'RE JUST KEEPING THE SAME ONE AND IT'S BEEN NONCONFORMING.

YOU KNOW. ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

OK, THANK YOU, MR. ISOM COUNCIL, THAT THAT THAT FINISHES OUR STAFF BRIEFING ON SOME OF THE ZONE CASES. MR. ISOM, DON'T GO FAR. I'M SURE WE'LL LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN SHORTLY.

COUNCIL. IT JUST IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO CONSIDER A NUMBER OF THESE TOGETHER, BUT SEVEN THREE NEEDS TO COME OFF, I THINK, TO BE CONSIDERED SEPARATELY.

SEVEN 13 CERTAINLY NEEDS TO BE DONE SEPARATELY.

MAYBE SEVEN 10 MS. JOY. SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT IT, I THINK.

NO, YOU GIVE THAT.

OK. A COUNCIL OF OTHER THAN SEVEN, THREE AND SEVEN, 13.

YOU NEED THAT YOU WANT TO CONSIDER.

PULL OFF SEPARATELY.

MS. PATTERSON HARRIS SAYS TAKE CARE.

TAKES CARE OF YOU. MR. GRIFFITH YOU GO TO THAT MS. JOY DOWN THE LINE.

THERE YOU GO. OK, NOW KEEP.

PLEASE CONTINUE MS. JOY.

AND THERE WAS THERE IS OPPOSITION TO IT FROM THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS.

THEY'RE NOT HERE TONIGHT, BUT NEITHER IS THE PROPONENT.

BUT WE DO HAVE THE OPPOSITION LETTERS FROM NUMEROUS PEOPLE WHO PRIMARILY LIVE TO THE SOUTH OF THIS FACILITY.

THE OTHER DISTURBING.

ISSUE FOR ME WAS THAT SHE ALSO ADDED SOME ADDITIONAL USES TO IT WHEN SHE CAME UP BEFORE PLANNING AND ZONING, AND THOSE ARE NOT BEFORE US TONIGHT.

IT IS STRICTLY BEFORE US TO NOT SEE FOR SPECIFIC USE FOR AN EVENT CENTER.

AND SO.

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT.

I DON'T I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TELL YOU, AND I UNDERSTAND THERE'S SOME C4 NEXT TO IT, THERE'S A THERE'S A RESTAURANT THAT'S A C FOR.

[02:25:05]

AND THEN TO THE EAST IS A HOTEL, I BELIEVE.

YES, TO THE EAST OF THE HOTEL.

YES. MY CONCERN IS I DON'T THINK SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE WANTS TO DO.

I'M NOT SATISFIED THAT WHAT SHE ASKED FOR IS WHAT WHAT SHE REALLY NEEDS.

BUT I DO KNOW THAT IN THE WAY OUR CODE IS CONSTRUCTED, WHEN YOU GET TO C C C ONE C TWO, THEY START BUILDING ON EACH OTHER.

IN OTHER WORDS, WHATEVER YOU COULD HAVE AND C ONE YOU CAN HAVE IN C TWO AND WHAT HAVE YOU HAD IN C ONE? IN C TWO, YOU CAN HAVE IT C THREE AND WHATEVER YOU HAVE AND C ONE, TWO AND THREE YOU CAN HAVE IN C FOUR PLUS ADDITIONAL USES AND THERE'S SOME VERY HEAVY DUTY USES IN C FOUR. SO SHE ONLY NEEDS C THREE, SO I'LL HAVE TO VOTE AGAINST IT BECAUSE IT'S PRESENTED AS C FOUR.

THANK YOU. MS. JARRETT MS. PATTERSON HARRIS.

SIMILARLY TO COUNCILWOMAN JARRETT, BUT I MEAN, IT'S NO NOTHING NEW THAT I DON'T GET EXCITED ABOUT C4 SO CLOSE TO RESIDENTIAL AREAS, ESPECIALLY THE HISTORY OF SO MANY PLACES THAT HAVE FOUND THEIR WAY TO NEXT TO NEIGHBORHOODS THAT HAVE BECOME NUISANCES AS A RESULT. ALSO, THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE AGAINST WHAT SHE IS ACTUALLY ASKING, AND I'LL HAVE TO TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION AND TAKE THOSE CITIZENS INTO CONSIDERATION. I'M NOT IN FAVOR OF THIS.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, MR. GRIFFITH. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

2014, THIS PROPERTY WAS AT RISK OF BEING TORN DOWN AND REDEVELOPED AS A HOTEL.

I FOUGHT VERY HARD TO KEEP THIS BUILDING.

IS INTACT.

BACK THEN, EIGHT YEARS AGO.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE OPPOSITION LETTERS NUMBER ONE, THE ONE FROM JULY 1ST, IS SPEAKING IN REFERENCE TO A DANCE HALL.

WE'RE TRYING TO CLEAN UP THAT DANCEHALL ISSUE THAT WE HAD WITH THE CHANGE TO EVENT CENTER AS WE HELPED ANOTHER PROPERTY ON 19TH STREET TONIGHT.

THE OTHER NEIGHBORS THAT ARE IN OPPOSITION TO THIS DON'T LIVE ON 20TH STREET.

THEY'RE PROPERTY OWNERS THAT LIVE IN OTHER PARTS OF THE CITY.

AND VERY GOOD PEOPLE, BUT THEY OWN PROPERTY ON 20TH BEHIND.

THIS PARTICULAR BLOCK, WHICH HOUSES A LARGE HOTEL, A RESTAURANT, AND I MIGHT ADD ITS NEIGHBOR TO THE WEST, THE LUTHERAN CHURCH, WHICH IS IN FAVOR.

OF THIS CHANGE. SO I BELIEVE IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT THIS GREAT LUBBOCK BUILDING BE REHABILITATED AND USED IN THE OWNER'S RECOMMENDATION BECAUSE IF NOT, IT MAY GO AWAY.

AND I THINK IT WOULD BE SAD IF THAT EVER HAPPENS.

I WOULDN'T CALL IT A LUBBOCK LANDMARK OR HISTORICAL, BUT IT'S CLOSE AND IT'S.

ITS LOCATION, OBVIOUSLY ACROSS FROM TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY ON A MAJOR CORRIDOR IS WELL DOCUMENTED, BUT IT IS MY RECOMMENDATION THAT THIS BE APPROVED.

MR. CHRISTIAN. THANK YOU, MR. GRIFFITH MR. CHRISTIAN. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR, I WOULD HAVE TO AGREE WITH MR. GRIFFITH BECAUSE I'M LOOKING AT ONE OF THE OPPOSITION LETTERS THAT THIS FELLOW DOESN'T EVEN LIVE IN LUBBOCK.

IT'S IT'S THE ADDRESS IS IN DALLAS, TEXAS, AND I DO AGREE WITH MR. GRIFFITH. THE HISTORY OF THAT BUILDING IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THAT PORTION OF 19TH.

AND IT BOTHERS ME THAT THERE'S SO MUCH OPPOSITION OF PEOPLE THAT DON'T EVEN LIVE IN THAT LIVE IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD WITH THE RESTAURANT NEXT DOOR.

I THINK THAT THIS WOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR US TO APPROVE THIS AS ASK.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND IT MIGHT CLARIFY IF YOU HAVE A MOMENT.

THANK YOU, MR. CHRISTIAN MS. MS. TRUSTEE ADDITIONAL LAND USES THAT MS. AKIN TALKED ABOUT WAS POTENTIALLY DOING A HOTEL, WHICH IS THE OTHER REASON BEHIND THE C4 ZONING. BUT THAT'S NO, NO, NO, THAT'S THAT'S ALLOWED IN THE SEA FOR USE BY ITSELF

[02:30:03]

OUTRIGHT SO. SO.

MR. GRIFFITH, I KNOW THIS PROPERTY PRETTY WELL, TOO, I THINK ONE OF THE ONE OF THE REASONS I FIND INTEREST IN THE COMPLAINTS ON 20TH STREET IS THAT IT'S ACTUALLY THE PROPERTY IN CONSIDERATION IS VERY DIFFICULT TO GET TO FROM 20TH STREET.

IN FACT, ONE OF MY BIGGEST MAYBE MY BIGGEST CONCERN ABOUT THE THE FOOD TRUCK PIECE OF THIS IS INGRESS AND EGRESS.

YOU KNOW, I'M NOT, YOU KNOW, I MIGHT EVEN BE ABLE TO LIVE WITH THE ZONING.

IT'S JUST THE INGRESS AND EGRESS, BECAUSE IF I'VE GOT IT RIGHT, MR. GRIFFITH, YOU CAN YOU CAN ENTER THIS PROPERTY.

ONLY TWO PLACES.

WELL, ACTUALLY, I GUESS A THIRD THERE'S YOU CAN ENTER IT ONLY ONCE IN THAT YELLOW BLOCK, RIGHT IN THAT CORRECT.

AND YOU CAN'T GET AROUND THAT THAT LITTLE THE THE THE WING THAT'S BUILT DUE NORTH.

AND SO YOU COULD YOU CAN ENTER THERE OR YOU COULD ENTER ON THE ON THE WEST END OF THEIR PROPERTY TO TWO PLACES, THEY'RE BOTH A PARKING LOT AND AN ENTRANCE INTO WHAT WE THINK OF AS CAFE J.

IT COULD PARK ON THAT SIDE, ALTHOUGH REALLY THAT PART OF ONLY PART, A VERY SMALL PART OF THAT IS IN THIS ZONE CASE.

IS THAT CORRECT? YEAH.

I DON'T I MEAN, I. WE GOT TO SEE FOR RIGHT NEXT DOOR.

WE'VE GOT A NEIGHBOR TO THE WEST, THAT'S OK WITH HIS OWN CASE.

I JUST. THE FOOD TRUCK PART TO ME DOESN'T MAKE A LOT OF SENSE JUST FOR NO OTHER REASON OTHER THAN LIFE SAFETY.

I MEAN, YOU CAN'T GET MORE THAN ONE OR TWO IN THERE AND HAVE PEOPLE PULL THEIR CARS IN THERE. I KNOW YOU'D HAVE SOME WALKING FROM THE CAMPUS, POTENTIALLY.

I'M SORT OF I'M TALKING OUT LOUD.

I WAS SURE IT'S THE PROPONENT WAS HERE TO EXPLAIN IT.

MR. ISD, CAN YOU COME AND EXPLAIN, YOU MENTIONED THAT SORT OF THE.

WHAT'S HAPPENED OVER THIS YEAR WITH THIS ONE? HOW DID WE GET FROM DANCE HALL TO FOOD TRUCKS? DO YOU CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THAT ONE? FOOD TRUCKS WERE ALWAYS PART OF IT.

THE FOOD TRUCK. SO THERE'S GOING TO BE A DANCE HALL AND FOOD TRUCKS.

SHE WANTED TO OPERATE IN AN EVENT CENTER, AND AT THE TIME THAT WAS THE ONLY SQUARE PEG WE HAD WITH THE DANCE.

ALL THE FOOD TRUCKS WERE ALWAYS PART OF THE REQUEST.

SHE WANTED THE FOOD TRUCKS TO BE ON PROPERTY.

THE ENTIRE TIME. AND IT'S I THINK IT'S ALSO ACCURATE THAT THIS PROPERTY IS FOR SALE, TOO, IS IT NOT? THAT IS MY UNDERSTANDING.

HAS IT BEEN HAS BEEN PULLED OFF? I WAS UNDERSTANDING AT ONE POINT IT WAS UNDER CONTRACT, IS IT STILL UNDER CONTRACT OR IS THAT? I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T THINK SHE CAN HAVE FOOD TRUCKS AND AN EVENT CENTER AND SEE THREE.

MM-HMM. AND THE PROBLEM WITH C-4.

THERE ARE SOME USES THAT I LOOKED THEM UP TODAY AND THERE.

PRETTY SCARY FOR THAT LOCATION, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

THAT LOCATION, I DON'T, YOU KNOW, IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO OWN PROPERTY TO THE SOUTH THAT DON'T LIVE HERE, BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THOSE HOUSES, THERE ARE RENTERS IN THOSE HOUSES WHO ARE STILL CITIZENS OF THIS CITY.

SO THAT DOESN'T BOTHER ME, THAT SOMEBODY OWNS RENTAL PROPERTY.

AND I THINK THE MAYOR IS CORRECT, INGRESS AND EGRESS IS IS A MESS BECAUSE THERE'S NO WAY TO GET A FOOD TRUCK.

IF YOU CAME IN ON 20TH STREET, WHICH WOULD BE BAD AND THAT PARKING LOT AND CAME AROUND, YOU CAN'T GET ACROSS.

TO THAT FACILITY WITHOUT GOING OUT ONTO 19TH STREET AND COMING AROUND.

GOOD. YES.

SHE'S TELLING ME, OH, THIS CASE IS JUST A LAW PIECE RIGHT HERE.

I GUESS YOU COULD PARK THEM RIGHT UP AGAINST THAT ON THE WEST SIDE OF THAT, THAT NORTH SOUTH WING THERE BE.

BUT I DON'T OWN THAT, THAT WING.

YEAH, THEY DO.

THEY OWN THE WING. THE WING IS PART OF IT.

[02:35:02]

I'M ASKING BRIAN, IT'S ALL PART OF THE REQUEST.

YEAH, OK. YEAH, THE THE IN RELATION TO NEIGHBORS LIVING BEHIND THE PROPERTY. WE JUST WENT THROUGH THIS WITH A CASE LESS THAN 30 MINUTES AGO ON 19TH STREET.

THAT'S PARTIALLY C-4, AND WE HAVE RESIDENTIAL DIRECTLY BEHIND MR. LANE'S PROPERTY. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? YEAH. SO THOSE THOSE NEIGHBORS ARE AT RISK, TOO.

THEN. BECAUSE PART OF HIS PROPERTY.

WELL, WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE? YOU DIDN'T HAVE ANY OPPOSITION IN MR LYONS CASE.

THAT POSITION DOESN'T LIVE BEHIND IT.

THE OPPOSITION TO THIS IS OUT OF TOWN OR FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE CITY, AND I'M NOT GOING TO THE THERE IS PROPONENTS OF THIS TO THE WEST.

FOR REDEVELOPMENT.

WELL, AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU THINK IF IT'S IF IT WAS SEA THREE WITH SPECIFIC USE, IT WOULD IT WOULD ENDANGER THE BUILDING, IT WOULDN'T.

IT WILL ALLOW HER TO USE THE BUILDING FOR AN EVENT CENTER AND HAVE FOOD TRUCKS.

IT'S NOT GOING TO AFFECT THE BUILDING, NOT GOING TO MAKE IT GO AWAY.

IF SHE DID THAT.

I'M NOT SURE WE'VE GOT THE REAL PICTURE ON THIS, BUT I'M OPPOSED TO C4 IN THAT LOCATION WITH THE USES THAT YOU HAVE IN C4.

AND IF YOU HAVEN'T LOOKED THOSE UP, YOU SHOULD ASK RON TO COME UP.

YES, SIR. MR. MR. WOULD YOU COME FORWARD, PLEASE? IN C4, A HOTEL IS ALLOWED.

THAT'S CORRECT. AND C THREE IS A HOTEL, WELL.

NO, SIR. THANK YOU.

BROWN WAS AT A HOTEL AT ONE TIME.

YES, IT WAS. IT'S BEEN DONE.

THAT'S WHY I WAS LAUGHING EARLIER ABOUT THIS ZONING.

YEAH, YEAH, THAT'S.

IN FACT, THAT'S PRETTY INTERESTING, JUST LOOKING AT THAT PART ALONE, IS THAT WHERE IT WHERE IT'S IF YOU LOOK BACK IN THE NOTES ON PAGE.

TO. YOU KNOW, TWO OR SEVEN WHERE IT'S BEEN.

WHO'S ZONE A HOTEL IN SEVENTY THREE AND OPERATED THAT WAY, WE'RE.

AND THEN THE ZONING WAS CHANGED.

AND IN 09, IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS SPLIT.

NINETY THREE. THE FIRST TIME.

THE. DISTRICT ASSISTANT.

OK. MR., I HAVE A QUESTION.

WOULD YOU GO TO PAGE 214 ON YOUR ON YOUR.

I THINK IT'S ONE ONE FORWARD FROM.

DO YOU HAVE THAT ON YOUR SLIDES? NEXT SLIDE. WHAT'S YOUR NAME? YEAH. WELL, NO, IT DIDN'T END THERE.

WHY? I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT JUST DUE NORTH ACROSS 19TH STREET, IT'S ZONED AS SINGLE FAMILY DISTRICT.

YOU KNOW. YES.

SO HOW DO WE HAVE A DORM OVER THERE, IF YOU IF THAT'S A SINGLE FAMILY DISTRICT, I'M JUST KIDDING. I JUST I'M JUST KIDDING.

I JUST FIND IT INTERESTING THAT THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS THAT WE HAD IN TEXAS TECH.

OK, LET'S GO TO A TO MS. PATTERSON HARRIS. THANKS, MR. MAYOR. I TOOK A LOOK AT THE PREVIOUS CASE, THE LOCATION AND THE ONE THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT HERE, AND THEY ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

THERE'S NOT THE RESIDENTIAL AREA LIKE THERE IS ON MY 20TH STREET DIRECTLY BEHIND THIS PARTICULAR LOCATION.

MY CONCERN AGAIN, IS THAT A NIGHTCLUB IS ALSO IN FOUR.

AM I CORRECT? I BELIEVE THEY'D HAVE TO REQUEST A SPECIFIC USE, BUT LET ME CHECK.

YEAH. WELL, WE HAVE A NIGHTCLUB WITHIN THE SEEING IN THE SAME BUILDING ON THE WEST END, BUT IT'S UNSAFE FOR.

THAT'S CORRECT. YEAH, IT IS.

THAT'S ALL IT IS. MY POINT IS WHAT WHAT I'M SAYING.

YEAH. THOSE USES PULLED UP EARLIER C4 USES.

BRIAN, YOU BRING YOUR LIST OF FOR USES, I'M LOOKING AT THEM.

[02:40:06]

SO YOU'RE JUST LOOKING FOR OTHER THINGS THAT C-4 MIGHT ALLOW THAT WOULDN'T BE ALLOWED BY, RIGHT? AUTOMOBILE BREAK SHOP AUTOMOBILES COVER AN UPHOLSTERY SHOP, AUTOMOBILE TRANSMISSION, SHOP, BODY PIERCING STUDIO, BUS STATIONS, ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT REPAIR, FROZEN FOOD LOCKERS, HOT TO MOLLY PLANT JANITORIAL OR CLEANING SERVICES, JOB PRINTING AND LITHOGRAPHS. LABORATORY CHEMICAL GENERAL ANALYSIS.

BUT I GUESS.

THANK YOU, MR. EISEN, BUT ALL THAT CAN GO DIRECTLY NEXT DOOR TO IT, THE WAY ZONE RIGHT NOW IN THE SAME IN THE SAME BUILDING, RIGHT? IT'S ALL ZONE THAT WAY.

I MEAN, THE BUILDINGS ARE THERE.

YOU CAN WALK FROM ONE TO THE OTHER.

THE OLDEST, THE OLDEST PART BEING WE COULD CALL OUR CITY HISTORIAN BOB BOB GOODMAN UP IF WE NEED TO, BUT THE OLDEST PART OF THAT BEING THE SAINT MARY OF THE PLAINS HOSPITAL NIGHT. HE WAS BORN THERE, I BELIEVE.

BUILT IN 19, BOARD, BUILT IN THE LATE THIRTIES, BOB WAS BORN A FEW FEW YEARS AFTER THAT.

BUT. I MEAN, I I DON'T LIKE IT, BUT WE'VE GOT C4 IN THE BUILDING THAT'S CONNECTED.

I MEAN BY, YOU KNOW, IT'S ONE AND THE SAME.

IT'S STILL. AND THEN FOR COUNCILWOMAN PATTERSON HARRIS IN THAT LOCATION, THEY WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK AND REQUEST AN ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC USE FOR THE NIGHTCLUB.

SORRY. THAT'S OK, YOU'RE ON.

THAT'S OK. OK.

NO, AND I GET IT AND I GET THAT THOSE OTHER THINGS ARE THERE, SO THERE MUST BE A SPECIFIC USE TO THE ONE NEXT DOOR FOR A NIGHTCLUB.

DO WE NOT KNOW? I COULDN'T COMMENT ON THAT.

NO, NO. BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE AND EVEN LOOKING AT IT, THE PROXIMITY TO THOSE PLACES, AND I GET IT.

AND THE REASON I GET IT IS BECAUSE I HAVE NEIGHBORS WITHIN MY DISTRICT THAT SUFFER EVERY TIME. THERE'S A CONCERN BECAUSE SOMETHING ENDED UP THERE AND IT DRIVES THEM BAD AND THERE'S NOTHING THEY CAN DO ABOUT IT.

SO THAT'S WHY I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE LOOK AT IT FOR ITSELF AND ADDRESS THOSE CONCERNS THAT THAT FOLKS HAVE, BECAUSE ONCE IT'S THERE, IT'S FLIPPING THERE AND THERE'S NOTHING THAT THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO DO ABOUT IT.

SO THAT'S MY CONCERN.

THAT'S MY SUPPORT FOR THEM.

AND I GET IT, MAN.

AND I EDIT A LOT OF FOOD TRUCKS AND SOMETIMES THEY CAN'T.

THEY CAN'T BE NOISY, THEY CAN BE LOUD.

OR IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AN EVENT CENTER OR SOMETHING THAT'S IN THE EVENING, THEN INDIVIDUALS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO CONTEND WITH THAT.

SO THAT'S THAT'S MY REASONING THAT I MEAN, THERE ARE FOLKS THAT ARE HAVE TO DEAL WITH STUFF BECAUSE IT'S THERE AND THERE'S NOTHING THEY CAN DO.

AND WE HAVE PEOPLE HERE TODAY WHO HAVE VOICED THEIR OPPOSITION TO SOMETHING THAT IS BEFORE US TODAY.

THANK YOU. MR. GRIFFITH, I NEED TO POINT ONE THING OUT, MS. PATTERSON HARRIS ON OUR FOOD TRUCK ORDINANCE, WE DO HAVE A NOISE COMPONENT TO THAT.

SO SOMEBODY CAN GET FINED IF THEY'RE IF THEIR FOOD TRUCKS TOO NOISY.

THANK YOU. THE GOOD THING ABOUT APPROVING THIS IS WE MIGHT HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE THAT WOULD SHOW UP TO SEE HOW LOUD THE RICE ROCKETS ARE THAT RUN DOWN 19TH STREET.

AND WE MIGHT START ENFORCING OUR SOUND ORDINANCE OR SOMETHING RIGHT THERE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE I PROMISE YOU, I PROMISE YOU THAT WHAT YOU DEAL WITH WITH LONE STAR APATHY OR FOUR OR FIVE TIMES A YEAR IS NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT WE DEAL WITH ON 19TH STREET WITH THE KIND OF THE THE LOUD VEHICLES THAT RUN UP AND DOWN IT AT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY TO DAY.

AND I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT IT BECAUSE WE, IF THE CHIEF WOULD, COULD, COULD HUMOR US. HE'S LET US KNOW THAT'S HAPPENING ALL OVER THIS CITY IN THAT FASHION AND MY MY RIGHT MR. CHEAPER MODEL OF IT IS, IS THAT I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERN FOR THE CITIZENS BECAUSE ONCE SOMETHING GETS THERE, THERE'S NOTHING THEY CAN DO FOR IT TO LEAVE.

THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING.

WELL, AND NOT IN QUESTION, PLANNING AND ZONING STRUGGLED WITH IT.

IT WAS A FOUR OR THREE.

IT WAS NOT A, YOU KNOW, UNANIMOUS WAS A FOUR THREE, SO THEY STRUGGLED WITH IT.

OH, AND HONESTLY, THE THREE TIMES SHE'S APPEARED, SHE'S CHANGED HER STORY EVERY TIME I SUSPECT THAT THERE'S MORE TO THIS STORY THAN WE'RE BEING GIVEN TODAY.

AND MAYBE THAT'S JUST MY.

LAWYER, SUSPICIOUS NATURE, BUT I THINK THERE'S MORE TO THIS STORY THAN WHAT WE'RE BEING TOLD TODAY. SO.

[02:45:02]

CAN'T PROVE IT. OK.

ARE THERE OTHER.

SO THIS WAS FIVE TWO, AND THE FOUR THREE WAS ON FOR THREE WAS ON THE ONE ON IDOL ROAD.

YEAH, YEAH. ALL RIGHT, COUNSEL, ANY OTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS? OK, I'VE GOT TO WE'VE GOT A WE HAVE A MOTION RIGHT AS WE DO HAVE A MOTION.

THERE'S A MOTION, A SECOND TO APPROVE.

ITEM SEVEN THREE ON FIRST ON FIRST.

READ ALL THIS IN FAVOR OF THAT MOTION.

PLEASE SAY I I OPPOSE BY THAT SAME SIGN.

OK. THIS MOTION PASSES FIVE TWO ON FIRST READ MR. ISOM. WOULD YOU DO US A FAVOR AND ASK THE PROPONENT ON THIS ONE TO COME TO THE TO THE OUR NEXT MEETING, JUST IN CASE THERE'S WE MIGHT HAVE A QUESTION.

I THINK IT'D BE NICE IF SOMEBODY COULD ADD A LITTLE FLAVOR TO THIS.

WE'LL DO, AND WE MADE SURE TO SEND OUT WITH OUR DECISION LETTERS ON FRIDAY.

NOTICE THAT THIS MEETING WAS BEING HELD TODAY.

YEAH, WHICH I UNDERSTAND THERE'S A REASON WHY THEY MIGHT NOT BE HERE SINCE THEY WERE HERE THURSDAY NIGHT AND WE'RE HERE ON MONDAY NIGHT.

BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE MAYBE MIGHT HELP US A LITTLE BIT WITH ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS.

OK. MS. JOY. WELL.

I BELIEVE IF YOU HAVE A ZONE CASE THAT'S COMING BEFORE COUNCIL, YOU NEED TO BE HERE.

DULY NOTED. OK, COUNSEL, LET'S MOVE TO ITEM SEVEN 13.

IT'S ON PAGE THREE SIXTY NINE.

ANY DISCUSSION ON SEVEN 13? OK, WE'VE GOT A MOTION ON THE FLOOR TO APPROVE THE FIRST READ OF ITEM SEVEN 13, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THAT MOTION, SAY I.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED BY THAT SAME TOKEN, I THINK THAT MOTION FAILS SIX TO ONE.
