GOOD MORNING.

IT'S

[Dallas Park and Recreation Board on August 03, 2023.]

STAN AUGUST 3RD, CONVENE OUR DALLAS PARK ATION.

WELCOME YOU ALL.

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GOOD SUMMER, UH, MARK IN DALLAS, BUT IS GOING ON SOME GOOD THINGS FROM THE CITY.

SO LOOKING FORWARD TO TODAY'S MEETING THAT OUR FIRST OF THIS SPEAKER, SPEAKER GUIDELINES, EACH SPEAKER WILL SPEAK TO YOUR COMMENTS, CHAIR ONLY, ANY SPEAKER, PERSONAL AND PERTINENT PROPANE OR S SLANG REMARKS OR ARE, OR BARR FROM THE MEETING.

THE FIRST SPEAKER IS COUNCILWOMAN JANE SCHU.

NEXT.

THANK YOU MR. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.

I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU BOTH.

SPEAK WITH YOU TODAY.

GREAT CITIES BEGIN WITH PARKS.

DALLAS IS FORTUNATE TO HAVE WHITE ROCK LAKES, SAMUEL GRAND AND OTHER PARKS WE'VE HAD FOR GENERATIONS.

WE LOVE OUR NEWER PARKS AND WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL TO YOU, OUR PARK BOARD FOR INVESTING IN THESE PROJECTS.

I WANNA SHARE WITH YOU IN LIFE THE IDEA OF BUILDING A COMMUNITY AROUND THE PARK VERSUS ADDING A PARK TO AN EXISTING COMMUNITY.

THE PURPOSE OF THE 2014 ADOPTION OF THE DALLAS INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT AND ALL THE ZONING THAT COMES WITH IT IS TO BUILD A NEW REGIONAL CENTER WITH OVER 8,000 NEW HOUSING UNITS, MILLIONS OF SQUARE FEET OF RETAIL AND OFFICE.

THE DISTRICT IS ESSENTIALLY A SMALL TOWN OF 25,000 IN THE HEART OF NORTH TEXAS.

IT'S DALLAS' ONLY CHANCE TO SERIOUSLY COMPETE WITH THE NORTH SUBURBS.

THE CENTERPIECE IS THE INTERNATIONAL COMMONS, THE PARK I'M ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT IN THE UPCOMING BOND ELECTION.

THE VISION FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT IS TO REVOLVE AROUND THE PARK.

WE'RE BUILDING THE TOWN AROUND THE PARK INSTEAD OF HAVING THE PARKLAND.

AS A RESULT, MANY OF THE PROPERTY OWNERS ARE WAITING FOR THE PARKLAND TO BE QUIET BEFORE THEY REDEVELOP THEIR LAND.

THEY WANNA BE ASSURED THAT OUR CITY IS INVESTING IN THIS PARK BEFORE THEY BUILD TALLER, BIGGER, MORE FINANCIALLY RISKY DEVELOPMENTS THAT THEY WOULD PUT ON A MUCH SMALLER SCALE AND MORE TYPICAL DEVELOPMENT.

THIS BOND ELECTION IS OUR TIME TO ACT.

WE CAN CHANGE THE FUTURE OF DALLAS AND DO THINGS WE'VE NEVER DONE IN OUR HISTORY.

WE CAN BUILD THE FIRST PARK CENTRIC COMMUNITY IN DALLAS, SOMETHING WE'VE NEVER DONE.

WE CAN DESIGN A 21 ACRE PUBLIC SPACE REFLECTING THE DIVERSE CULTURES THAT HAVE SHAPED OUR CITY.

ALSO.

FIRST, WE CAN UNLOCK $5 BILLION IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WITH AN INVESTMENT OF LESS THAN 5%.

THERE'S NO GREATER RETURN ANYWAY.

THIS IS NOT ONLY A SIMPLE YES FROM PARKS AND ECO DEBT PERSPECTIVE, IT'S ALSO A MAP OF SOCIAL JUSTICE.

NORTH DALLAS IS BY ANY STANDARD PARKS AGAINST CURRENTLY THE RESIDENTIAL BASE OF THIS AREA MAKES IT A QUALIFIED SINCE IT'S TRACKED FINANCIALLY IN THE FUTURE, RESIDENTS WILL BE FULLY MIXED INCOME AGAIN, FIRST IN DALLAS.

NOWHERE ELSE ARE WE PLANNING ON A PRE-PLANNED, FULLY MIXED INCOME COMMUNITY OF HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY.

SO PLEASE BE THERE AND SAY YES.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

WELL SPOKEN MA'AM.

NEXT SPEAKER IS MS. TAM RELL VIRTUAL.

CAN YOU PUT ON CAMERA AND AUDIO? WE GET A MOMENT.

STOP WHAT WE CAN SEE.

STOP THAT.

OKAY.

HI, BEGIN.

HI, UM, MY NAME IS SAM RIO AND I AM HOLD ON ONE SECOND.

CAN WE TURN THE WATER OFF PLEASE? THANK YOU.

I'M SORRY.

OH, YES.

UM, I'M SPEAKING FROM MY, UH, KITCHEN TABLE.

UM, UH, I WOULD LIKE TO ADVOCATE FOR, UM, THE NEIGHBORHOOD, UH, PARK IN MY COMMUNITY.

IT'S CALLED GATEWAY.

I KNOW WE'RE UP FOR RECONSIDERATION FOR A NEW PLAYGROUND.

UM, ALSO WE HAVE ONE PITCH FOR SOCCER AND TWO TENNIS, UM, TWO TENNIS COURTS.

UM, THE TENNIS COURTS GET USED OFTEN FOR OTHER THINGS AND, UM, WE DO HAVE SOME TENNIS FLARES.

WE SOME, UH, AND A FEW MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY HAVE ASKED FOR PICKLEBALL.

IT HAS BECOME A SPECIAL OLYMPIC SPORT, AND SO AS A MOM OF AN ADULT WITH SPECIAL NEED, A PERSON WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, I WOULD LIKE TO ADVOCATE FOR ALSO SOME OTHER PICKLEBALL, UM, COURTS IN THE CO IN OUR COMMUNITY.

[00:05:02]

UM, ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO ADVOCATE FOR, IF YOU TAKE A RIGHT OFF OF, UM, JIM MILLER.

THERE'S ANOTHER SOCCER, SMALLER SOCCER COURTS OR SOCCER PITCHES AND, UM, A BASEBALL FIELD.

AND WE DRIVE.

CURRENTLY WE DRIVE TO GARLAND, UM, TO DO BODY LEAGUE.

WE DRIVE TOO MANY OTHER PLACES TO DO LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS THAT AREN'T AVAILABLE HERE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

I THINK THAT THAT BASEBALL FIELD WOULD BE A PERFECT PLACE TO CONSIDER CREATING A, UM, A PARK.

A A THAT WOULD WOULD BE, THAT COULD BE ACCOMMODATING TO FOLKS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS SO THAT WE COULD CREATE A LEAGUE HERE IN OUR OWN COMMUNITY.

WOULDN'T HAVE TO DRIVE SO FAR AWAY.

UM, I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ADVOCATE FOR POSSIBILITY OF HAVING A SIGNATURE RECREATION CENTER AT CRAWFORD AND ONE THAT ALSO WOULD INCLUDE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR SPECIAL FOR FOLKS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.

WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A SPECIAL NEEDS BASKETBALL TEAM, UH, UH, IN THIS COMMUNITY.

UM, TAKING DART ALL THE WAY TO, UM, TO THE BATMAN LAKE AREA IN THE EVENING FOR PRACTICE SOMETIMES TAKES AN HOUR.

SOMETIMES YOU GET THERE 30 MINUTES LATE AND THEY PICK YOU UP 15 MINUTES EARLY.

UM, SO HAVING SOMETHING IN OUR COMMUNITY OR EVEN IN THE SOUTHERN SECTOR OF DALLAS THAT WOULD ACCOMMODATE, UM, SOME PROGRAMMING FOR OUR SPECIAL COMMUNITY, UH, WOULD REALLY BE APPRECIATED.

THANK YOU MA'AM.

OUR NEXT SPEAKER IS MS. MARIA VALENZUELA.

GOOD MORNING.

BEFORE MY TIME, UH, STARTS, UH, I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE PACKAGES BECAUSE WE REFERRING TO THOSE.

YES MA'AM.

WE'LL GET THEM PASSED UP.

WELL, I WILL BE REFERRING AND I NEED TO GET OUT.

OKAY.

MY NAME IS MARIA VALENZUELA.

I LIVE AT 24 45 DORRINGTON DRIVE, MONT EDITION NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IN DISTRICT SEVEN.

THERE WILL BE THREE OF US SPEAKING TODAY ON BEHALF OF RESIDENTS LIVING IN PARIS, DALLAS, AND WE SHARE THE HISTORY OF OUR 28 YEAR QUEST TO GET THE WHITE ROCK HILLS ATION CENTER BUILT AT 21 31 21 65 HIGHLAND ROAD.

WE HAVE PROVIDED A PACKET OF MATERIALS FOR YOU TO REVIEW.

IF YOU PULL OUT THE HANDOUT CALLED QUEST FOR THE RECREATION CENTER, YOU CAN BE THE VISUALS THAT TODAY COULD DATE TIME.

NOW WAIT A LITTLE BIT SO THAT EVERYBODY HAS THE PACKAGES FOR DECADES.

THE CITIZENS ALONG THE LOWER FERGUSON ROAD CORRIDOR HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED BY THIS CITY UNTIL THE FORMATION OF THE FERGUSON ROAD INITIATIVE IN 1998.

WE HAVE NO NEIGHBORHOOD CHAMPION, VOICE OR ADVOCATE TO SHINE LIGHT IN THIS NEGLECT.

A RECREATION CENTER AND LIBRARY WERE FIRST IDENTIFIED IN 1995 AS A NEEDED AMENITY.

THE WHITE ROCK HILLS LIBRARY WAS SECURED, FUNDED, AND OPENED IN 2012.

ON PAGE THREE, YOU CAN SEE THE HISTORY OF WORK COMPLETED TOWARDS THE RECREATION CENTER.

KEY DATES INCLUDE LAND ACQUISITION, A FEASIBILITY STUDY APPROVED BY THE PARK BOARD AND ANALYSIS BY THE PARK AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT, AND A STUDY BY JACOBS ENGINEERING DETERMINING THE ESTIMATED COST OF THE CENTER TO BE 24 MILLION.

HOWEVER, YEAR AFTER YEAR BOND ELECTION AFTER BOND ELECTION, DESPITE, DESPITE THERE BEING A RECOGNIZED GAP IN RECREATION CENTER SERVICES.

SEE PAGE FOUR OF YOUR HANDOUT, OUR COMMUNITY HAS BEEN BYPASSED.

THE GREEN CIRCLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GRAPHIC REPRESENTS A THREE MILE GAP BETWEEN RECREATION CENTERS.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE, YOU WILL SEE THAT IT TAKES RESIDENTS LEAVING ALONG THE LOWER FERGUSON ROAD CORRIDOR AN HOUR TO WALK TO THE NEAREST CITY RECREATION CENTER.

THEY TAKE, IF THEY TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, IT TAKES BETWEEN 20 TO 58 MINUTES.

TURNING TO PAGE FIVE, OUR COMMUNITY IS 68 MINORITY AND SEVERAL CENSUS STRIKES WITH 12 TO 38 POVERTY RATES.

OUR CENTER SITE, NOT THE RATE START IS IN DISTRICT TWO, BUT WE WILL ALSO SERVE RESIDENTS LIVING IN DISTRICT SEVEN AND NINE.

I NOW WILL TURN THIS TO DESSI TANNER.

THANK YOU, DESSI TANNER.

[00:10:14]

MY NAME IS DESSI TANNER.

I LIVE BY 2 7 0 7 RUNNING BOOK.

I'M IN DISTRICT TWO.

I'M THE CHAIR OF THE CHILDREN AREA CRIME WATCH AND THE FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE WHITE ROCK EAST AREA PLAN.

ALTHOUGH RECREATION CENTER WILL SERVE A POPULATION OF MORE THAN 70,000 RESIDENTS, IF YOU LOOK ON PAGE SIX, YOU'LL SEE A LIST OF THE 19 DIVERSE NEIGHBORHOODS WITHIN A 1.5 MILE RADIUS OF THE CENTER THAT WILL BE SERVED BY THE ROCK, ROCK HILL RECREATION CENTER.

ON PAGE SEVEN IS A LIST OF 16 APARTMENT COMMUNITIES WITHIN ITS RADIUS ALL ARE AFFORDABLE, SUBSIDIZED, OR TAX CREDIT PROPERTIES.

THE CHILDREN'S FROM THESE APARTMENTS ATTEND AREA SCHOOLS RANGING FROM 88 TO 9% IN PROPERTY AND RECEIVE A FREE LUNCH PROGRAM.

PAGE EIGHT DEMONSTRATES THAT WHITE BLOCK HILLS RECREATION CENTER IS THE FINAL PHASE OF A WELL THOUGHT OUT STRATEGIC COMMUNITY DRIVEN PLAN THAT EXTENDS ALONG THE ASH CREEK GREENVILLE.

ITEM NUMBER ONE FROM SAMUEL BOULEVARD TO LAKELAND DRIVE.

IT IS PART OF A CAREFULLY INTEGRATED HEALTH AND RECREATION INITIATIVE THAT MEANS WELL DOCUMENTED COMMUNITY T UH, NEEDS OUTDOOR AMENITIES INCLUDE THE WHITE ROCK HILLS PARK IN 2021.

THAT'S ITEM NUMBER TWO, BIKE PATH AND SIDEWALKS ON HIGHLAND ROAD COMPLETED IN 2022.

THAT CONNECTS TO THE 20 T FOREST PINE TRAIL.

ITEM NUMBER FIVE, THE TRAIL IS SCHEDULED FOR A RIBBON CUING SET CEREMONY IN OCTOBER.

THE TRAIL CONNECTS TO HIGHLAND ROAD AND PROVIDES CITYWIDE CONNECTIVITY FOR A ONCE ISOLATED COMMUNITY.

OTHER AMENITIES AND IMPROVEMENT ON THE HARASS AND CLOSE MOUNTAIN BACK TRAILS.

THAT'S ITEM NUMBER FOUR AND, UH, HIGHLAND FERGUSON ROAD INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT.

TO BEGIN IN SEPTEMBER, F R I IS A TRUSTED COMMUNITY ADVOCATE WITH A 30 YEAR TRACK RECORD OF PERFORMANCES WHEN INVESTING PUBLIC MONEY.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO PARTNER WITH COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS WITHIN THE CAPACITY TO EXECUTE ON WHAT THEY SAY AND, AND THAT THEY ARE WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO.

WE HAVE SHARED SOME DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION, BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO DIG DEEPER TO PAINT A FULLER PICTURE OF THIS COMMUNITY AND WHAT A RECREATION CENTER WILL MEAN TO IMPROVING A QUALITY OF LIFE.

NOW I WILL TURN THIS PRESENTATION OVER TO SUSAN HOPPER.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

SUSAN HOPPER.

GOOD MORNING.

MY NAME IS SUSAN HOPPER.

I LIVE AT PHYLLIS AND ASH CREEK AND DISTRICT TWO.

THE FERGUSON ROAD INITIATIVE RECREATION STORY IS A TALE OF TWO CITIES ON ONE SIDE OF THE RAILROAD TRACKS TO THE WEST.

OUR COMMUNITIES WITH NO POVERTY.

FAMILIES ARE HIGHLY EDUCATED AND THEY FACE BEAUTIFUL WHITE ROCK LAKE.

THE ARBORETUM AND SHOP AT CASA LINDA TO THE EAST OF THE TRACKS ARE MIXED INCOME COMMUNITIES MADE UP OF BOTH STABLE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES AND ITS TRANSIENT MULTIFAMILY POPULATION.

APARTMENTS HAVE PLAYGROUNDS AND SWIMMING POOLS.

WHITE ROCK HILLS PARK ONCE AN ILLEGAL DUMP SITE NOW PROVIDES HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES.

A 10 MINUTE WALK TO A PARK WITH THE OPENING OF THE TRINITY FOREST SPINE TRAIL COMMUNITIES TO THE EAST NOW HAVE SAFE ACCESS TO WHITE ROCK LAKE AND CITYWIDE CONNECTIVITY.

ALL OF THIS IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE FERGUSON ROAD INITIATIVE HAS BEEN A COMMUNITY WATCHDOG AND A POSITIVE CHANGE AGENT, BUT IT'S NOT ENOUGH.

WE STILL HAVE RATE B ON PAGE NINE.

A STUDY BY BAYLOR RATE ZIP CODE 7 5 2 2 8 R COMMUNITY, A 4.8 ON A FIVE POINT SCALE AND THE COMMUNITY NEED INDEX.

THE HIGHER THE SCORE, THE GREATER THE NEED.

ON PAGE 10, A STUDY BY PARKLAND INDICATES 33% OF CHILDREN IN THIS COMMUNITY SUFFER WITH ASTHMA.

ON PAGE 11, OUR MAPS FROM THE U SS D A AND DALLAS FOUNDATION SHOWING THIS COMMUNITY IS A CERTIFIED FOOD AND CHILDCARE DESERT.

ON PAGE 12, A STUDY FROM S M U

[00:15:02]

LABELS THIS COMMUNITY AS AN INFRASTRUCTURE DESERT BUILDING THE WHITE ROCK HILLS RECREATION CENTER FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH AND BE THE FINAL PHASE TO FULLY REDEVELOP THIS COMMUNITY.

F R I IS ACTIVELY SEEKING PARTNERS FOR THE CENTER, NOT ONLY TO ENHANCE SERVICE OFFERINGS, BUT ALSO TO REDUCE OPERATING COSTS.

OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES DESERVE THE SAME OPPORTUNITIES THAT OTHERS IN THE CITY RECEIVED THROUGH RESOURCES PROVIDED FOR RECREATION CENTER, OPPORTUNITIES FOR HEALTH AND WELLBEING.

ORGANIZED SPORTS EDUCATION AND CULTURAL ART PROGRAMS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR A THRIVING COMMUNITY.

THE FERGUSON ROAD INITIATIVE AND THE RESIDENTS OF FAR EAST DALLAS ASK YOU TO PLEASE PLACE THE WHITE ROCK HILLS RECREATION CENTER ON THE 2024 BOND PROGRAM.

YOUR THREE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU MA'AM.

MR. WAYNE GOSSER.

GOOD MORNING.

MY NAME IS WAYNE GOSSARD.

I'M THE PRESIDENT OF NORTH OAK CLIFF GREEN SPACE, WHICH IS A NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION, UH, IN NORTH OAK CLIFF THAT SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN 2005, UH, HAS RAISED OVER HALF MILLION DOLLARS TO SUPPORT MAINTENANCE AT STEVENS PARK GOLF COURSE.

UM, WE ARE THE LEAD ORGANIZATION THAT IS PROPOSING A NEW GOLF CLUBHOUSE FOR THE COURSE.

UM, I SUPPOSE WITH PROJECTS SUCH AS THESE, THE FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TO ESTABLISH COMPELLING NEED FOR SUCH A STRUCTURE AND THAT'S PRETTY EASY TO DO.

IN OUR CASE.

UH, THE CLUBHOUSE IS OVER 80 YEARS OLD.

IT WAS COMPLETED IN 1942 WITH W P A MONEY.

UH, IT SUFFERS FROM ALL OF THE DEFICIENCIES IN FOIBLES THAT MOST OLD STRUCTURES DO.

UH, THE ROOF LEAKS.

THERE'S A SLAB LEAK THAT WE JUST DISCOVERED EARLIER THIS WEEK.

UH, THE PRO SHOP IS TOO SMALL.

FOOD SERVICE AREA IS TOO SMALL.

UH, WE HAVE NO ROOM FOR PLUG REPAIR WORK OR RENTAL CLUB STORAGE YET.

WITH ALL OF THAT, WE MANAGED TO DO OVER 55,000 ROUNDS OF GOLF PER YEAR AND HOST ON AVERAGE 120 GOLF TOURNAMENTS PER YEAR.

THAT'S MORE THAN ANY OTHER DALLAS MUNICIPAL GOLF COURSE.

UM, WE HAVE DODGING PLUMBING.

WE HAVE COBBLED TOGETHER H V A C AND ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.

UH, ALL OF THOSE THINGS AGAIN THAT ARE COMMON TO OLD STRUCTURES.

UM, THERE IS, HOWEVER, BEYOND THESE COMPONENT REASONS, ONE COMPELLING REASON THAT I FEEL STANDS ABOVE ALL THE OTHERS, AND THAT IS IN THE WOMEN'S RESTROOM AT STEVENS PARK CLUBHOUSE.

THERE IS ONE TOILET, ONE TOILET.

I DON'T THINK AT ANY OTHER DALLAS MUNICIPAL GOLF COURSE CLUBHOUSE.

THERE IS A WOMEN'S RESTROOM WITH ONE TOILET.

UM, I DON'T KNOW OF ANY GOLF CLUBHOUSE IN THESE UNITED STATES THAT HAS A WOMEN'S RESTROOM WITH ONLY ONE TOILET.

THAT WOULD BE UNTHINKABLE.

IT WOULD BE UNIMAGINABLE.

YET THAT IS THE REALITY.

UH, AT STEVENS PARK.

UH, I KNOW A LOT OF THE LADIES WHO PLAY AT STEVENS PARK, THEY KNOW WHO I AM AND THEY KNOW MY ASSOCIATION WITH GREEN SPACE AND WHEN THEY SEE ME, I GET AN EARFUL AND RIGHTLY SO ABOUT ONE TOILET IN THE WOMEN'S RESTROOM.

UH, HERE, UM, BEYOND THE CLEAR ECONOMIC REASONS FOR A NEW CLUBHOUSE AT STEVENS PARK, I THINK THERE'S A CIVIC PRIDE ISSUE HERE THAT EVERYONE, MALE OR FEMALE, GOLFER OR NON GOLFER CAN UNDERSTAND.

UH, AND THAT AT THE END OF THIS PROCESS.

MR. POSER, THAT'S YOUR THREE MINUTES.

IS THAT OKAY? THANK YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

APPRECIATE IT.

UH, THIS PICTURE WILL BE IN DIRECTOR, UH, JENKINS' OFFICE IN COUNCILMAN WEST'S OFFICE IF YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE .

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SIR.

[00:20:01]

THANK YOU.

JUST UH, WITH THE OPEN MICROPHONES, I DID GET A TEXT FROM DAN OTTMAN, F I THAT IF ANY BOARD MEMBER WANTS TO VISIT THAT AREA, UH, THEY'LL BE WELCOME TO DO SO.

I WILL HAVE YOU SEND HERE, SHARE THEIR INFORMATION.

IF ANYONE WANTS TO VISIT, THEY'LL ARRANGE A GROUP PHONE TO SHOW THE PRESENTATION IN PERSON THE AREA ABOUT .

SO YOU HELP TO SHARE THAT INFORMATION.

WITH THAT, WE MOVE TO NEXT APPROVAL OF MINUTES FOR JUNE, MAY, 2023 AND JUNE 15TH, 2023.

DO HAVE MUCH MR. SLAUGHTER? MR. PALM? RE IT? ANY UH, ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE.

AYE.

UH, 1, 2, 2.

ANY OPPOSED? I AS HAVE IT I FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION.

NUMBER THREE, NOT EVEN TRAIL.

A.

ANY OPPOSED? AYES HAVING.

OKAY, NOW WE MOVE TO ALL OUR BOOKING AGENT.

THAT'S GOOD.

AND WE GET TO HER BRIEFING, LANDMARK DESIGNATION PROCESS WITH MS. UH, .

I'M GOING TO INTRODUCE MR. DARREN MAPSCO.

HE IS THE CHAIR OF THE DESIGNATION COMMITTEE FOR THE DALLAS LANDMARK MISSION AND HE'S GOING TO SPEAK WITH US ABOUT THE LANDMARK DESIGNATION PROCESS.

SO I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO DARREN.

THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT.

BOARD MEMBERS, THANK YOU FOR THE INVITATION.

I KNOW YOU HAVE VERY FULL AGENDA.

THIS IS GONNA BE BRIEF, THIS OVERVIEW DESTINATION EVER GIVEN BY ANYBODY.

I HOPE .

AND IT'S NICE TO SEE A FORMER LANDMARK COMMISSIONER AND OTHER PEOPLE THAT I KNOW I'M TALKING TO.

SO, UH, HOW WOULD YOU NOT PROCEED? THERE'S THE CLICKER.

THE REASON I'M HERE, THERE'S A CLICKER RIGHT THERE ON THE TABLE FOR YOU.

THE REASON I'M HERE IS ONE, I SERVED 10 YEARS IN DALLAS LINE COMMISSION.

I SERVED 22 YEARS ON DESTINATION COMMITTEE.

I HAVE SERVED 2017 YEARS AND CONTINUING ED ROLE, UH, FOR REALTORS IN THE CITY OF DALLAS.

I'M A HISTORICAL HOME SPECIALIST.

I HAVE TRAINED LANDLORD COMMISSIONERS.

I HAVE DONE A FEW OTHER THINGS.

SO I, SO WITH THAT SAID, DALLAS HISTORY IS OFTEN REFLECTED BY THE DALLAS PARK SYSTEM.

UH, THIS IS THE 1930 16TH .

AND WHEN I WALKED BY THIS ROOM, I LOOKED AT THE PRESERVATION OF DALLAS ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS AND REALIZED HOW INTEGRAL PRESERVATION IS TO THIS PARTNER DEPARTMENT NOW, OR YOU DON'T KNOW, THIS IS GALA, SEE LIKE IN 1850 DAYS.

BUT GALA HALL WAS ONLY IN THE SECOND FLOOR.

SO DO THINGS DO CHANGE AND I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS I WANNA COMMUNICATE TODAY TO YOU IS THAT PRESERVATION IS A NOT ABOUT FREEZING A BUILDING OR PLACE IN KIND AND LEAVING IT ALONE AND NEVER TOUCHING IT AGAIN.

PRESERVATION IS NOT ELEGANT AND LONG.

THAT'S THE BEST PHRASE I'VE EVER HEARD WHAT PRESENTATION MEANS.

BUT IT IS THE DELIBERATE PROCESS OF DECIDING WHAT WE WANT ANOTHER GENERATION TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR GENERATION AND PREVIOUS GENERATIONS.

IT IS ALSO AN URBAN DESIGN AND ECONOMIC TOOL CITY.

THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF DESIGNATIONS.

THE ONLY ONE WE'RE GONNA BE TALKING ABOUT IS THE LAST ONE, WHICH IS THE CITY OF DALLAS PROCESS.

THERE'S MORE THAN 4,000 STRUCTURES IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK HAS MORE THAN 50,000 EXTERIORS, MORE THAN 15,018 CITY IN THE DALLAS DEVELOPMENT CODE.

CITY COUNCIL HAS ACTUALLY CHARGED THE LANDMARK COMMISSION WITH 17 DIFFERENT GOALS.

WE ALL KNOW AS BOARD, FORMER BOARD MEMBERS AND BOARD MEMBERS, A BOARD CANNOT ACHIEVE 79.

WE TRY OUT THIS.

NUMBER FIVE IS MORE THE BOARD IS TO PROMOTE THE ENJOYMENT AND USE HISTORIC RESOURCES FOR PEOPLE.

THIS IS A 1950 COUNT .

THE BATHHOUSE LANDMARK COMMISSION IS, ITS ROLE IS DEFINED OF THE JOB.

IT'S EVERYTHING FROM VIEW CERTIFICATES OF APPROPRIATENESS TO DESIGNATION OF HISTORIC PROPERTIES.

IT IS APPROVAL TAXES AND BY EXTINCTIONS TRANSFERRED DEVELOPMENT LABS, WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN DONE IN THE CITY OF HOSPITAL.

IT'S DONE IN

[00:25:01]

OTHER CITIES.

AND INITIATION IS THE FIRST STEP IN THIS PROCESS.

INITIATION CAN BE DONE BY THE ONE FOUR PARTIES AND THAT IS THE LANDMARK COMMISSIONER.

IT COULD BE DONE BY THE C T C COMMISSIONER.

IT CAN ALSO BE DONE BY COUNCIL MEMBER, WHICH OFTEN HAPPENS AND IT CAN ALSO BE DONE BY THE PROPERTY OWNER.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INITIATION AND DESTINATION INITIATION IS TOO TEMPORARY.

IT USUALLY LASTS FOR A PERIOD OF APPROXIMATELY TWO YEARS.

IT IS ALSO TIED TO THAT POINT.

STRUCTURED HAS THERAPY WHERE THERE DESIGNATION WHETHER IT SHOULD PROCEED IN THE PROCESS.

IT IS ALSO TO PREVENT SOMETIMES CIRCUMVENTION OF THAT DESIGNATION SO THAT IF YOU'RE LONGTIME RESIDENT OF DALLAS, YOU KNOW THAT ONE OF THE BEST BUILDINGS C E D HAD A INVOLVED AT 5:00 PM ON SUNDAY EVENING BEFORE THE DESIGNATION GET 10 CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS IS THE LAST.

WHEN YOU ARE INITIATING, YOU STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATE QUALITIES.

TRUCTURE THE DESIGNATION BECOMES THE PERMANENT SOLUTION TO THAT ISSUE.

WORK AND ALTERATION FOR , NOT NECESSARILY VIOLATE UH, LANDMARK COMMISSION, BUT SOMETIMES AND OFTEN BY STAFF.

THE CRITERIA FOR DETERMINATION.

THE UH, DESIGNATION COMMITTEE HAS ACTUALLY 10 CRITERIA THAT WE USE AND IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ALSO, THESE ARE THE THREE THAT ARE THE MOST PERTINENT PART PART AND THAT IS THE HISTORY.

HERITAGE, , HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT AND ETHNIC HERITAGE.

THERE'S A HISTORIC EVENT ASSOCIATED SIDE OR THAT IT REPRESENT SPORT EDUCATION SO THAT PAST GENERATIONS WE UNDERSTAND PAST GENERATIONS.

THE DETERMINATION PROCESS DESIGNATION COMMITTEE INITIATES PROPERTY AND IS SUBMITTED TO HER REVIEW.

AND NOT ALL BUILDINGS ARE EVER CONSIDERED ELIGIBLE FOR DESIGNATION.

INTEGRITY IS THE FUTURE SHOULD BE SUBMIT PROPERTIES WHERE THE INTEGRITY OF THE BUILDING SEVERE COMPROMISE.

THE BEST EXAMPLE I CAN THINK OF IS THE HARD ROCK CAFE ON THE CANYON AVENUE.

THE DOME WAS REMOVED AND ADDED ONTO WINDOWS WERE CHANGED, ET CETERA.

ALSO IT HAS TO BE AT LEAST 40 YEARS OF AGE.

AND IF THERE IS TOTAL PROPOSITION, I HAVE SERVED ON THE DESIGNATION AT 817 PEOPLE SPEAK IN OPPOSITION TO ONE NOMINATION.

WE HAD TO MOVE THE MEETING TO THE SEVENTH FLOOR CAFETERIA 'CAUSE NO ROOM WAS AVAILABLE AT THAT POINT.

THE DESIGNATION COMMITTEE DOES THREE THINGS.

THEY TAKE THE NOMINATION REPORT AND PREPARE AT ALL.

REVIEW AND SUBMIT.

IT'S A FULL HISTORY OF THE, THE PROPERTY AND OF THE .

THE IT IS, IT IS A MINI HISTORY AND PART OF THE COMPOSITE OF THE OVERALL HISTORY OF THE CITY OF DALLAS.

THE SECOND ITEM IS WHAT IS REALLY .

IT IS ALSO THE COMMITTEE BALANCE PRESERVATION CRITERIA.

IT TELLS FUTURE STAFF AND WHAT THE INTENT THAT DESIGNATION IS.

AND IT CAN BE AS FLEXIBLE AS WE WANT IT TO BE.

IT ALSO PREPARES TO CYCLONES AND LIMITS.

PROTECTIONS ARE DEFINED 'CAUSE NOT EVERYTHING WILL BE PROTECTED OR IS PROTECTED.

THIS IS COVER PAGE FOR A RECENT DRAFT NOMINATION.

THIS IS DRAFT AND THIS IS JUST STANDARD FORM THAT WE USE AND STANDARD FOR EVERY NOMINATION.

I STILL HAVE THE LINE ORIGINAL NOMINATION, WHICH IS AND TYPED THE COURT TYPEWRITER HAS DISAPPEARED FROM OUR ELECTION.

IT IS STILL HAND TYPED, BUT THE HISTORIC NOMINATION COURT AND ON HISTORIC DATES, E DEFENSE, BILL, AND ALSO DOCUMENTS BY INFORMATION DESCRIPTION OF THE DISTRICT AND THE DETERMINATION OF THAT CRITERIA WE INCLUDE.

NOW BECAUSE THE CITY ATTORNEY AT ONE TIME CITY OFFICES WOULD NOT ALLOW US TO USE ILLUSTRATIONS.

WE NOW HAVE UH, STANDARDS.

SO WE DON'T INCLUDE THINGS LIKE FLOOR PLANS.

YOU SEE THE FLOOR PLAN UNDER BEYOND HOUSE FOUNDATION.

WE'D ALSO ON THE RIGHT IT KATHLEEN GIL'S FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS FROM HER CAREER THAT WE INCLUDED IN NOMINATION PRESERVATION PERIOD ADDRESSES EVERYTHING FROM THE SITE AND LANDSCAPING THE BUILDING FACADE IF THERE IS A BUILDING.

'CAUSE NOT ALL ATIONS HAVE BUILDINGS, DOORS, WINDOWS, DEFINING ELEMENTS, NEW CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATIONS OF ANY OTHER FISCAL REQUIREMENTS.

THIS IS A SITE PLANNING FROM BUILDING TO FILL.

THIS WAS ACTUALLY

[00:30:01]

RE-REVIEWED SHOWS SOUTHWEST THE DESTINATION COULD BE THE RED ORIGINAL DESTINATION.

HAD A PROPOSED BUILDING SITE AT THE END SITE SIGNIFICANTLY.

CARS DESTINATION COMMITTEE THAT WE REVIEWED IT WHEN WE CHANGED THE BUILDING LOCATION, INCREASE THE NO BILL ZONE AND ALSO ALLOWED HIM TO GO A 35 HIGH LIMIT IN ORIGINAL CRITERIA TO A 70 FOOT HIGH LIMIT TO OFFSET MAINTAINING THAT CRITERIA FOR THAT VIEW PROJECT.

LANDMARK COMMISSION THEN REVIEWS THE NOMINATION CRITERIA AND SITE PLAN RECEIVES ADDITIONAL PUBLIC NCE AND MOVES ON TO C P C TO GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS.

EACH ONE OF THESE STEPS, PUBLIC HEARING.

SO DESIGNATION IS A PUBLIC MEETING.

LANDMARK COMMISSION IS PUBLIC HEARINGS.

P C IS FOLLOWED WITH PUBLIC HEARING AND THE CITY COUNCIL BEFORE IT BECOMES A DALLAS LANDMARK.

DALLAS LANDMARKS INCLUDE EVERYTHING FROM MAJESTIC TO THE 180 CRAFT HOUSE AND LAKE CLIFF PARK.

THE LIST OF HISTORIC PARKS THAT WERE DESIGNATED OR ALREADY INCLUDE EVERYTHING FROM FAIR PARK STATION, BUT IN PARTICULAR I SAW IT WAS UNDER UH, MAIN STREET GARDEN.

MAIN STREET GARDEN ORIGINALLY HAD THREE DESIGNATED BUILDINGS ON THIS SITE.

LANDMARK COMMISSION AND DESIGNATION COMMITTEE.

ALSO DETERMINANTS PARK MORE IMPORTANT THAN, I HATE TO USE THE WORD MEDIOCRE, HIS HISTORIC BUILDING, BUT LET'S SAY LESS DESIRABLE HISTORIC BUILDINGS.

BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE DESIGNATED THE GOAL OF THE LANDMARK COMMISS MISSION IS TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR THE CITY AND THEREFORE WE WAIVE THE DESIGNATION, THE DESIGNATED .

WE ALSO INCLUDE INCREDIBLE NUMBER OF LANDMARK CEMETERIES.

I WAS , I DIDN'T HAVE TO EXPLAINED COUNCIL ROCK CEMETERIES TAKING SO LONG 'CAUSE IT'S POINT IN PROCESS.

BUT THESE ARE ALL THE CEMETERIES ARE DESIGNATED, INCLUDING ON YOUR CEMETERY.

WE ALSO HAVE A HISTORICAL RELATIONSHIP WITH BI I SS D.

THESE ARE THE SCHOOLS THAT ARE ALSO DESIGNATED AND TO SHOW YOU HOW FLEXIBLE THAT IS.

D I S D RESOLUTION CRITERIA IS THE MOST FLEXIBLE OF MANY CRITERIA BROUGHT IN THAT THE BLUE ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED WITHOUT ANY REVIEW WORK CAN BE DONE WITHOUT ANY REVIEW.

AND ALSO ANYTHING THAT DOES.

STAFF ALWAYS HAS EXPEDIT TO REVIEW AND DOES 48 HOURS OF RECEIPT.

AND ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES I CAN THINK OF THIS DOES NOT MEET A LOT OF PEOPLE'S IDEA PRESERVATIONS SHOULD IT BE, BUT FOR ME IT IS THE EXAMPLE WHAT IT SHOULD BE.

BUILDING MASSIVELY VERY TEMPORARY STATEMENT.

NOT ALL BOOK WORK.

IT HAS LINEATED , IT'S PERFECT ANSWER TO , TO A HISTORIC BUILDING LANDMARK.

THE IMPORTANT THINGS FROM IS THAT IT IS A .

IT ALSO IS A POSSIBLE ORGANIZATION BE WRITTEN PLUS THE SPECIFIC NEED BUILDING SIDE, WHATEVER.

IT'S ALSO REMARKABLE IN THAT WE CAN TAKE AN MASTER PLAN FROM THE PARK AND ACTUALLY CODIFY IT AS IMPORTANT AND LET IT PROCEED SO THAT INSTEAD OF SITTING ON A SHOW THAT GETS SOMEWHAT FORGOTTEN BY SOME DEPARTMENTS, IT NOW BECOMES A CITY ORDINANCE.

IT'S ALSO COMMITTEE BY AND COMES PROTECTED LANDMARK FROM THERE OWN DALLAS PARK.

HAVE LOT OF STRUCTURES TO RECEIVE.

AND ULTIMATELY I'M GONNA CLOSE WITH THIS IS FOREMOST.

PARTICIPATION TEACHERS AND STORY RESOURCES MUST OF THE .

THIS IS AND THE BEGINNING THINGS CHANGE.

THINGS DO CHANGE AND PRESERVATION HAS CHANGED AND REMAINS THE FLUXX HOLE PROGRAM.

I PROBABLY SAID WAY TOO MUCH.

AND I WILL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS THAT Y'ALL HAVE IF YOU HAVE ANY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR .

AND WITH THAT, UH, MR. CONNOR.

THANK YOU MR. THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION.

DO YOU HAVE A MAP THAT SHOWS, UM, ALL THE HISTORIC DESIGNATIONS AND PARKS, UM, THAT, THAT WE CAN SEE LIKE A HEAT MAP THAT SHOWS THE BREAKDOWN? UM, I DON'T KNOW THAT ONE ACTUALLY EXIST.

UM, I, WE I COULD ASK THE STAFF, UH, HISTORIC OFFICE AT HISTORIC PRESERVATION TRIED TO COMPARE ONE FOR YOU.

IT IS, UM, AND I DO KNOW THAT ACTUALLY I SERVED ON THE COUNCIL.

YES, PLEASE.

THIS IS KATE SINGLETON,

[00:35:01]

WHO IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION.

UM, I'M KATE SINGLETON.

I'M YOUR CHIEF PRESERVATION PLANNER.

UH, WE DO ON OUR WEBSITE, HAVE A MAP THAT, UH, SHOWS ALL OUR HISTORIC DISTRICTS AND OUR INDIVIDUAL LANDMARKS.

SO THE PARKS WOULD BE ON THERE AS WELL AS THE CEMETERIES.

WHAT'S WHAT'S THE NAME OF THAT WEBSITE IF YOU JUST GOOGLE? UH, DALLAS, CITY OF DALLAS HISTORIC PRESERVATION.

AND, UM, WE HAVE A LIST OF, WE'VE BROKEN THEM OUT INTO INDIVIDUAL LANDMARKS.

THERE'S AN OVERALL, UH, MAP.

THERE'S ALSO, UM, AN INDIVIDUAL FOR OUR HISTORIC LANDMARKS THAT ARE INDIVIDUAL LANDMARKS.

AND THERE ARE ONES FOR THE HISTORIC DISTRICTS.

SO YOU CAN LOOK THEM UP INDIVIDUALLY OR YOU CAN LOOK UP THE WHOLE THING.

UM, UM, I WILL SAY THIS, WE HAVE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF G I S PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF THE RANSOMWARE ATTACK.

SO I'M NOT SURE IF OUR LAYER IS STILL UP THERE.

IT'S BEEN UP AND DOWN.

SO, BUT ON THIS WEBSITE SOMEWHERE AT TAKE A WHILE FOR THIS TO BOOT UP YEAH.

ON THERE IS A OVER, LIKE AN OVERLAY ON A MAP.

DO YEAH, I I KNOW THAT THE SPECIFIC PART, C V I S HAS ONE.

AND, UM, IT WOULD BE IF YOU GO INTO THE, UH, WHEN YOU ARE, WHEN IT COMES UP AND YOU CAN GO INTO THE HISTORIC DISTRICTS, ALL, ALL OF THEM ARE INDIVIDUALLY LISTED AS TO WHICH ONES.

AND SO YOU CAN SEE THE MAPS, ALL OF THEM.

OR LIKE I SAY, I THINK THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH THE LAYER FOR THE OVERALL G I S MAP RIGHT NOW, UH, BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO GET IT ALL ON IT THE OTHER DAY AND IT MAY BE DOWN.

AND THESE ARE JUST THE, I'M LOOKING AT THE, THE G I S NOW, THESE ARE JUST THE DISTRICTS, CORRECT? RIGHT.

HOW MANY DISTRICTS DO WE HAVE NORTH OF, LET'S SAY MOCKINGBIRD? WELL, WE HAVE, UH, WE HAVE 21 DISTRICTS ALL TOGETHER.

AND I'M TRYING TO THINK WHAT WOULD BE, UM, NORTH OF MY, BECAUSE WE HAVE SOME OF THE CEMETERIES, UH, NORTH OF MOCKINGBIRD, UH, NORTH OF MOCKINGBIRD WOULD BE TWO FACILITIES OF MIKE, WHICH WOULD BE PUMPHOUSE AND THE BATH HOUSE.

WE HAVE CEMETERIES IN FRONT , AND THAT IS CEMETERY.

AND MY SECOND POINT PRIVILEGE IS, UH, I WANNA RECOGNIZE, UH, THE SENIORS FROM MARTIN WEESE RECREATIONAL CENTER HERE.

OUR PARK BOARD WORKS, UH, WITH ONE OF THEIR LEADERS.

MR. THERE, UM, RAISE YOUR HAND.

YOU'RE FIRST MARTIN.

WE LOOK THE WHOLE GROUP BACK HERE.

PURPLE SHIRTS ON.

UH, WANNA RECOGNIZE THEY'RE BIG ADVOCATES OF THE COMMUNITY AND, AND THEY'RE, UH, THEY'RE OUT ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT BARN.

WE ANYWHERE WE SEE, WE HAVE A DISTRICT MEETING.

THEY'RE THERE SUPPORTING MARTIN WE, AND MAKING SURE THINGS ARE GETTING DONE WITH THEIR WEST, WEST OAK CLIFF NEIGHBORHOOD.

I WANNA SAY THANK YOU TO THEM FOR BEING HERE TODAY.

UH, MR. SLAUGHTER? YES.

UH, THANK YOU FOR THAT.

ARE WE ON? AFTERNOON ON? THAT'S WHY I DIDN'T .

I'D ALSO LIKE TO RECOGNIZE, AND WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THOSE PUBLIC PRIVATE ISSUES.

WE HAD A WAY OF, UH, WHAT WAS NEEDED OUT AT PARK.

AND I'D LIKE TO RECOGNIZE THE HEAD PRO.

JIM HENDERSON, WHEN YOU STAND UP, JIM, JIM WORKS

[00:40:01]

HARD FOR THIS COMMUNITY AND HE DIDN'T LET SOMEBODY COME DOWN AND SPEAK FOR HIM.

HE SHOWED UP HIMSELF.

THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO REALIZE WITH OUR PARTNERS.

SO THANK YOU.

AND UH, JOHN, IT'S SUCH A BLESSING TO HAVE YOU BACK.

FINALLY, CRYSTAL CAN GET SOME RISKS.

, THANK YOU.

SINCE YOU, JOHN, YOU'RE WELCOME.

WE MISSED YOU, BUT WE REALLY DID.

CRYSTAL DID SUCH A GOOD JOB.

SO THANK, PLEASE DON'T STRESS HIM ENOUGH TO GO BACK.

GONE TO NEXT POINT ON THE AGENDA, BUDGET UPDATE, UPDATES IN THE ROOM.

I SAW HER EARLIER, BUT, UH, I MEAN, THERE'S NO BUDGET.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, WE NEED TO CIRCLE BACK 'CAUSE SHE NEEDS TO COME BACK AND REMIND YOU ALL ABOUT THE UPCOMING MEETINGS AND BUDGET.

THERE'S A BRIEFING THAT'S COMING UP NEXT, NEXT WEDNESDAY.

I NEED TO, THAT'S WHEN THE CITY MANAGER WILL DISCLOSE HIS PROPOSED BUDGET AND YOU'LL GET A MEMO FROM US PROBABLY ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON, IF NOT MONDAY, UH, ONCE HE RELEASE HIS PROPOSAL, OUTLINED WHAT WE DID RECEIVE OR NOT.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF, UH, RACHEL PRETTY MUCH GAVE THEM A BRIEF TELLING THEM THAT THERE'LL BE A MEMO COMMENT DUE FRIDAY OR MONDAY AT THE LATEST.

UH, ONCE THE CITY MANAGER RELEASE HIS PROPOSED BUDGET, THEY'LL BE PRESENTING TO THE COUNCIL.

UM, YES, THAT WOULD BE CORRECT.

AS OF RIGHT NOW, UM, WE'RE STILL RECEIVING UPDATED NUMBERS, SO THAT PRESENTATION SHOULD GO OUT TOMORROW OR AT THAT POINT I WOULD BE ABLE SEE THEY'RE CURRENTLY BEING CHANGED BY TUESDAY, THE PRESENTATION.

AND I BELIEVE, UM, WE ALSO HAVE THE TOWN HALL MEETINGS THAT ARE STARTING ON THE 10TH RUNNING THROUGH THE 24TH.

SO OF COURSE THAT'S ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR THE COMMUNITY TO GO OUT AND SUPPORT THE PARK SYSTEMS. REMINDER, THANK YOU.

EXPAND.

AND I CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH THAT YOU ALL REALLY COULD HAVE BEEN THE BUDGET MEETINGS.

IT REALLY DOES MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE.

REALLY DOES.

IF YOU ALL THE BOARD MEMBERS COULD REALLY TRY TO ATTEND A COUPLE OF THOSE MEETINGS WOULD BE.

SO WITH THAT, WE MOVE TO THE , THE ROOM, THE WORKSHOP ON OUR 2024 PART.

MR. PRESIDENT, REAL QUICK, I'VE GOT SOME FEEDBACK FROM FOLKS WATCHING THAT, THAT THE MICROPHONE ON THE THE LEFT, OUR LEFT IS A LITTLE BIT MUFFLED, A LOT MORE MUFFLED THAN THE MICROPHONE ON THE RIGHT.

SO IF WE COULD HAVE SPEAKERS USE A MICROPHONE ON OUR RIGHT, PRIMARILY, THAT'D BE BETTER.

FOOTBALL CAMERA.

THANK YOU MR. KINO.

SO BEFORE, UH, THIS GET STARTED, I THINK THAT REAL QUICK ON THIS WORKSHOP TODAY, UH, I THINK WE STARTED IT A FEW WEEKS BACK, WE HAD A FEW SPECIAL CALL MEETINGS.

AND AS WE ALL KNOW, WE KEEP ON REPEATING, THIS IS ONE OF THE, THE MOST IMPORTANT TASKS WE WILL PERFORM FOR THE FUTURE OF THE CITY.

UH, FINALLY I THINK LAST WEEK OR LAST BOARD MEETING, WE GAVE AN INDICATION OF $350 BILLION.

AND CHRIS SAYS INPUT.

SHE TOOK THE PRIORITIES OF THE BOARD MEMBERS AT THE CITY LEVEL ALONG ON DIFFERENT LEVEL.

AND THAT'S WHAT SHE'S PRESENTING.

THE OBJECTIVE OF TODAY'S MEETING IS THAT ONCE SHE IS PRESENTED IT, I THINK WE GO OVER WITH EACH BOARD MEMBERS LITTLE MORE INPUT AND THEN I WILL CALL A SPECIAL BOARD MEETING NEXT THURSDAY.

AGAIN, MR. JENKINS HAVE BEEN OUT OF THIS PROCESS THOUGH.

HE HAS BEEN WATCHING.

TRUST ME, HE HAS BEEN OUT, BUT WE'VE NOT BEEN OUT.

BUT WE REALLY NEED HIS FEEDBACK AND UPDATE ON, UH, YOU KNOW, WHERE HE FEELS ALL THIS SHOULD GO LIST TOGETHER.

SO AFTER TODAY'S DISCUSSION, UH, I THINK ONCE WE COME BACK, UH, FOR THE SPECIAL MEETING NEXT THURSDAY, THAT'S WHERE WE COME TO SOME REALLY FINE DECISIONS BY THE PROJECT WISE AND ALL TO DELIVER TO THE SUBCOMMITTEE.

AND ONCE WE GET TO THE SUBCOMMITTEE, THEY WILL DISCUSS AND COME BACK TO US AGAIN BECAUSE WE NEED THAT INPUT TOO.

AND THAT'S WHERE, I DON'T KNOW IF NEEDS A VOTE OR NOT, THAT'S WHERE WE KIND OF FINALLY DID OUT, BUT JUST WANTED TO LAY THE PROCESS BECAUSE I KNOW EVERYONE HAS BEEN CONFUSED.

SO TODAY'S OBJECTIVE IS AFTER THE BRIEFING, I THINK WE ALL INDIVIDUALLY DISCUSSED, YOU KNOW, HOW OUR CITYWIDE PRIORITIES, OUR COUNCIL PRIORITIES, AND THEN DISCUSS

[00:45:01]

THE PROJECT BASED ON CHRIS'S PRESENTATION AND THEN IT CAN LEAN BACK NEXT.

AND THAT TIME I LEAVE IT TO THE SENIOR OR DIRECTOR GRANDKIDS.

WE CAN DO IT AS EARLY AS IN MORNING, BUT I NOT DECIDE BASED ON WHAT'S GOOD FOR MOST BOARD MEMBERS.

SO THANK YOU CHRIS FOR THAT.

PLEASE PROCEED.

THANK YOU RESIDENT .

AND I THINK I HEAR ANOTHER QUESTION FOR YES, THIS DOCUMENT THAT EVERYBODY'S, THAT JUST GOT PASSED ON, EVERYBODY'S LOOKING AT NOW, JUST A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THIS.

SOME HAVE 10, SOME HAVE 50.

AND AND ONE THING I WANNA NOTE AND THANK YOU LANE BEFORE WE GET STARTED, WHAT WE DID WAS OUR BOARD MEMBERS SUBMITTED THEIR TOP 10 PROJECTS TO US.

IN SOME CASES THEY MAY HAVE JUST SUBMITTED A LOCATION, LIKE LET'S SAY I'M GONNA KIND OF THROW SOMETHING OUT, LET'S SAY NORTH HAVEN.

SO IF SOMEBODY JUST SAID NORTH HAVEN, WHAT WE DID WAS WE BASICALLY PULLED EVERY PROJECT IN IN THE NEEDS INVENTORY THAT SAID NORTH HAVEN.

OR IF SOMEONE SAID WHITE ROCK CREEK TRAIL, WE PULLED EVERY TRAIL SEGMENT FOR WHITE ROCK CREEK TRAIL.

SO SOME PARK BOARD MEMBERS, IT MAY SHOW THAT THEY HAVE 15 OR 25 ON THERE ONLY BECAUSE, OR 80 50 ONLY BECAUSE WE PULLED EVERY SEGMENT THAT THEY HAVE HAD WHITE ROCK CREEK TRAIL OR NORTH HAVEN OR WHATEVER PARK ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

UM, BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE SPECIFIC LOCATION WITHIN THAT PARK OR WITHIN THAT .

SO THAT'S WHY YOU'RE SEEING SOME OF THAT.

AND THAT'S WHY THIS, THIS TOP 10, YOU KNOW, NEEDS REQUEST TOP 10 BLUE DUCKS 9 37, 4 MILLION.

SO I DID WANT SAY THAT UP UPFRONT, BUT THAT IS KIND OF WHY THAT HAPPENED SO THAT EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS THAT, YOU KNOW, SOMEBODY DIDN'T NECESSARILY SUBMIT 50 PROJECTS, IT JUST HAPPENED TO BE, THEY MAY HAVE SUBMITTED THE PARK, BUT THE NEEDS INVENTORY HAD 39 LINE ITEMS. SO I, I MEAN, I KNOW WE'RE GONNA DO A PRESENTATION, BUT, AND THAT'S A LITTLE BIT MISLEADING FROM WHAT WE DISCUSSED WE WERE GONNA DO.

I I WENT THROUGH AND I IDENTIFIED LIKE THE CAMPBELL GREEN PLAYGROUND.

I COULD'VE JUST IDENTIFIED CAMPBELL GREEN AND HAD EVERYTHING LUMPED IN TOGETHER.

I MEAN THAT'S, ANYWAY, THAT'S, THAT'S A LITTLE UNFAIR.

UM, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT AGAIN, ROSEMEAD PART OR IT SHOULD BE A TIMBERLAND, YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT PROBABLY 10 PROJECTS I NEED AT TIMBERLAND, BUT I CHOSE THE PLAYGROUND AND THE SPECIFIC PROJECT IN TIMBERLAND BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I, WE WERE TOLD TO DO.

SO, SO GO AHEAD.

YEAH, NO POINT.

SO LET, LET'S GO THROUGH CHRIS'S REPUTATION AGAIN REALLY, REALLY QUICKLY.

YES, MS. MONDELL, I JUST WANNA MAKE SURE WHAT YOU GUYS HAVE GOT PRINTED OUT IN FRONT OF YOU.

IS THE PARK BOARD FUNDING THREE V THREE? NO MA'AM.

BUT SHE HAVE ACCESS TO THIS, UH, THAT WAS NOT EMAILED OUT ELECTRONICALLY.

SO TANYA NO, YOU DO NOT HAVE THAT IN FRONT OF YOU.

UM, I CAN SEND GOOD STAFF TO EMAIL YOU HAVE SOMEONE EMAIL YOU.

.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

ABSOLUTELY HARRISON.

YEAH.

YES OR THAT, OKAY, GO AHEAD.

SO I'M SORRY, I'M WAITING FOR THE PRESENTATION.

OH, OKAY.

SO LOOKING AT OUR PURPOSE AND ACTION ITEMS TODAY, WE'RE GONNA TALK JUST BRIEFLY ABOUT HOW WE GOT HERE.

WE'RE GONNA JUST BRIEFLY REVIEW THE GENERAL COST OF SPECIFIC ITEMS. AGAIN, WE'LL REVIEW THE $350 MILLION FUNDING SCENARIO THAT YOU ASKED US TO PUT TOGETHER.

AND WE ARE GOING TO BE WORKING ON OBTAINING CONSENSUS ON PRIORITIZED LIST FOR CATEGORY.

THAT WAS OUR ACTION ITEM FOR TODAY THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE DISCUSSING A LITTLE BIT.

AND THEN WE'LL TALK ABOUT NEXT STEPS.

STEPS.

SO LOOKING AT HOW WE GOT HERE, WE STARTED BY TALKING ABOUT THE NEEDS INVENTORY.

WE HAVE NEARLY 3000 ENTRIES AND OVER $2 BILLION IN IDENTIFIED NEEDS.

WE STARTED COMING TO YOU IN, IN, UM, SEPTEMBER OF LAST YEAR AND TALKING WITH YOU ABOUT HOW MANY NEEDS INVENTORY WAS FORMULATED AND HOW WE WERE LOOKING AT THAT.

UM, WE TALKED WITH YOU ABOUT OUR BOND PROGRAM SCORING CRITERIA, AND THAT WAS APPROVED BY THE PLANNING AND DESIGN COMMITTEE FEBRUARY 9TH, 2023.

AND THEN BY THE WHOLE PARK RECREATION BOARD ON FEBRUARY 23RD, 2023.

ON APRIL 20TH, 2023, WE PRESENTED YOU A $610.2 MILLION PROGRAM THAT WAS PRESENTED ADDITIONAL DOLLARS AND CATEGORIES WERE REQUESTED TO BE ADDED MASTER PLANS, LABORATORIUM AND INDOOR POOLS AND SPECIALTY PARKS.

[00:50:01]

SO ON JUNE 1ST, 2023, WE BROUGHT BACK A $712.2 MILLION PROGRAM TO THE PARK BOARD AND WE HAD SOME SCORE PROJECT LISTS BASED ON THE NEEDS INVENTORY.

ON JUNE 8TH, WE CAME BACK WITH A $719.7 MILLION PROGRAM BECAUSE WE DID ADD AN AGENCY MATCH CATEGORY AND FUNDING AMOUNTS WERE ACTUALLY DEVELOPED FOR A $450 MILLION SCENARIO.

BASED ON WHAT THE PARK BOARD ASKED US TO DO ON JUNE 15TH, WE BROUGHT YOU BACK A $450 MILLION PROGRAM WITH FOUR PROJECT LISTS AND IT WAS REQUESTED AT THAT POINT TO COME BACK AT THE NEXT MEETING WITH A 200, 300, $400 MILLION FUNDING SCENARIO, WHICH WE DID ON JULY 20TH, 2023.

AND AT THAT POINT WE WERE PROVIDED DIRECTION TO DEVELOP A PROGRAM FOR $350 MILLION FUNDING SCENARIO, WHICH IS WHAT WE'VE BROUGHT TO YOU TODAY.

SO WE JUST KIND OF WANTED TO REMIND EVERYBODY KIND OF WHERE WE'VE BEEN, WHERE WE'VE COME FROM, AND JUST HOW FAR WE'VE COME, YOU KNOW, IN TIME WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS.

SO AGAIN, LOOKING AT THE GENERAL COST OF SPECIFIC ITEMS, UM, OUR ATHLETIC FIELD DEVELOPMENT, 5 MILLION FOR FIELD , FIELD LIGHTING, ONE AND A HALF MILLION PER FIELD.

I'M NOT GONNA GO THROUGH ALL OF THESE.

THEY HAVEN'T CHANGED.

MOST OF THEM HAVEN'T CHANGED.

I WILL TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT A FEW THAT WE HAVE MODIFIED, WHICH WOULD BE ON THE PLAYGROUNDS.

WE HAVE ADDED A COST FOR $1 MILLION FOR AN OLIVE ABILITIES PLAYGROUND ON THE RECREATION CENTERS.

UM, WE HAVE $20 MILLION FOR REPLACEMENT.

WE HAVE ADDED A STANDARD COST FOR ONE AND A HALF MILLION FOR EACH REMODEL.

KNOWING WAY SOME OF THEM ARE GONNA BE MORE AND SOME OF 'EM ARE GOING TO BE LESS, BUT FOR THE MAJORITY THEY'LL AVERAGE OUT TO BE ONE AND A HALF MILLION.

AND THOSE ARE REALLY THE ONLY THINGS THAT WE ADDED MODIFIED IN THE GENERAL COST LIST.

SO LOOKING AT THE SUPPLY CHART OF $350 MILLION, SIMILAR TO WHAT WE HAD DONE AT THE LAST MEETING, WE TOOK YOUR COST DISTRIBUTIONS THAT YOU GAVE US FOR $450 MILLION LIES WITH YOUR PERCENTAGES IN EACH BUCKET.

AND WE FACTORED THAT DOWN TO THIS $350 MILLION SCENARIO.

SO WHAT YOU'RE SEEING ON HERE IS BASICALLY A DOLLAR VALUE.

WE'LL USE ATHLETIC FIELD DEVELOPMENT IMPROVEMENT, WHICH IS RIGHT AT THE TOP OF THE, UM, PIE CHART.

SO $14.59 MILLION, WHICH WAS 4.17% OF THE BUDGET.

BASICALLY THOSE PERCENTAGES THAT YOU SEE IN THERE ARE ALL THE SAME AS THE PERCENTAGES IN THAT $450 MILLION CATEGORY THAT YOU GAVE US.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON HOW WE CAME UP WITH THESE DOLLAR VALUES? NO MA'AM.

SEEING NONE.

SO AGAIN, WE CAME UP WITH THIS POSSIBLE SCENARIO BASED ON UTILIZING THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WAS IN EACH BUCKET AND UTILIZING THOSE GENERAL COSTS AND FITTING IN WHAT WE COULD IN EACH CATEGORY.

SO BASICALLY A D A COMPLIANCE AT $970,000 IN THAT BUCKET.

THAT'S WHAT WE PUT IN THAT BUCKET.

ATHLETIC FIELD DEVELOPMENT, WE COULD UTILIZE TWO FIELDS AND WE HAD $4.59 MILLION REMAINING.

AND I WANNA EXPLAIN, IF YOU LOOKED AT THE BOTTOM, THERE'S A NOTE DOWN HERE THAT SAYS THE REMAINDER DOLLARS ARE CALCULATED BASED ON THE AVAILABLE FUNDING PER CATEGORY AND THE GENERAL COST OF THE SPECIFIC ITEM.

SO IF WE USE THE ATHLETIC FIELD DEVELOPMENT AS AN EXAMPLE, THERE'S $14.59 MILLION ALLOCATED IN THAT BUCKET.

THE GENERAL COST OF ATHLETIC FIELD DEVELOPMENT IS $5 MILLION PER FIELD.

SO IN THIS UM, LINE ITEM, WE COULD HAVE TWO FIELDS AT $10 MILLION, WE WOULD TAKE THE 14.59 MILLION, SUBTRACT OFF THE 10 MILLION AND WE HAVE $4.5 MILLION, $4.59 MILLION.

SO I WANTED TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY UNDERSTOOD HOW THESE CALCULATIONS WERE DONE.

YES, MS. COLLEGE .

AND I KNOW, I'M SORRY, I'M TAKING OVER'S JOB.

I APOLOGIZE.

SORRY, JUST HAVE A QUESTION ON THIS.

SORRY.

YES, EXCELLENT.

OKAY, PERFECT.

BUT SO LIKE IN THIS CASE, CHRIS, I KNOW THIS IS NOT THE SAME FOR EVERY CATEGORY, BUT 4.59 MILLION IS PRETTY CLOSE TO FIVE.

IS THERE STILL A WAY WE COULD FINAGLE A THIRD DEAL? WE, SOME OF THESE AMOUNTS ARE ACTUALLY PRETTY CLOSE TO THE PROJECTION AND WHAT YOU WILL SEE WHEN WE GET TO PAGE 10 IS THAT THERE'S A TOTAL DOLLAR AMOUNT REMAINING, RIGHT? AND WHAT WE DID IS WE ADDED UP ALL THESE REMAINDER DOLLARS AND THEN ON PAGE 11 JUST PUT TOGETHER SOME PROPOSED POTENTIAL SCENARIOS ON WHAT WE COULD DO WITH THOSE DOLLARS.

AND A LOT OF THE TIMES WHAT WHAT WE DID WAS WE LOOKED AT SOMETHING LIKE $4.59 MILLION COMING UP TO 5 MILLION AND SAID, LET'S JUST PUT $400,000 HERE TO BASICALLY MAKE UP .

YEAH, OKAY.

I JUST, I'D SEEN THAT, I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THE, THE PROCESS, THE FUNGIBILITY OF THAT WAS KIND OF TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT.

SO WHILE WE ONLY SEE

[00:55:01]

IT MIGHT BE TWO FIELDS, IT REALLY COULD END THE THEME.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S EXACTLY, SO ATHLETIC FIELD LIGHTING, WE HAD THE POTENTIAL OF THREE FIELDS WITH 1.33 MILLION REMAINING ON COMMUNITY POOLS.

GAVE US ONE POOL, $3.06 MILLION REMAINING ON EROSION CONTROL.

IT WAS FOUR PROJECTS WITH $860,000 REMAINING ON THE GOLF CENTER IMPROVEMENTS.

WE HAD SPECIFIC LOVE SUMS FOR THE GOLF CENTERS, FOR GOLF PROJECTS.

SO WE TOOK THE THREE THAT WERE CLOSEST TO WHAT WE HAD IN THAT BUCKET AND HAD 1.5 MILLION REMAINING ON LAND ACQUISITION.

WE HAD FIVE POINT, EXCUSE ME, $15.56 BILLION AVAILABLE ON MASTER PLANS.

WE COULD DO EIGHT MASTER PLANS, MULTI-DEPARTMENTAL PROJECTS, WE COULD DO TWO PROJECTS ON THE NATATORIUM AND INDOOR POOLS.

WE DID NOT HAVE THE $15 MILLION AVAILABLE TO DO EVEN ONE PROJECT THERE.

SO THAT'S WHY WE'RE JUST SHOWING THE 11.67 MILLION REMAINING ON THE PARTNERSHIP MATCH THIS LARGE, WE HAD 46.67 ON THE SMALL MATCHES.

WE HAD 1.94 ON AGENCY MATCHES.

WE HAD 3.89 MILLION ON PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES.

WE WERE ABLE TO DO ONE BRIDGE ON PLAYGROUNDS.

WE HAD 19 PLAYGROUNDS ON THE RACKET SPORTS COMPLEX.

WE DIDN'T HAVE 15 MILLION FOR A REMODEL OR OBVIOUSLY 30 MILLION FOR A NEW COMPLEX.

SO THAT'S WHY WE JUST HAVE A REMAINDER DOLLAR THERE.

IN RECREATION CENTERS, WE WERE ABLE TO DO, DO THREE NEW AND WE HAVE $17.81 MILLION REMAINING ON SERVICE CENTERS.

UM, THOSE ARE 5 MILLION A PIECE, SO WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO DO ONE OF THOSE ON SPECIALTY PARKS.

WE DIVIDED AS SHOWN HERE ON SPRAY GROUNDS.

WE HAD ENOUGH THREE SPRAY GROUNDS SYSTEM-WIDE SECURITY LIGHTING WAS $4.86 MILLION ON THE TENNIS CENTER IMPROVEMENTS WE COULD DO EIGHT TENNIS COURTS, IMPROVEMENTS, SEVEN AND A HALF MILES.

AND THE PARKING SITE DEVELOPMENT, WE HAD $48.63 MILLION, WHICH CAME OUT TO 3.47 MILLION DISTRICT.

SO THE TOTAL DOLLARS REMAINING WAS 66,660,000.

SO ON PAGE 11, WE JUST PUT TOGETHER A POTENTIAL SCENARIO AGAIN OF HOW TO UTILIZE SOME OF THAT EXTRA MONEY, WHICH WAS PUTTING IN POSSIBLY AN AUDITORIUM UTILIZING 3.3 MILLION REMODELED RACK SPORTS COMPLEX TO 410,000 PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE, 40,000 ATHLETIC FIELD.

AS I MENTIONED, 410,000 ATHLETIC FIELD LIGHTING, 170,000 TO GET AN ADDITIONAL COMMUNITY POOL.

IT WAS 2.44 MILLION TO GET OUR ADDITIONAL TENNIS COURT, IT'S 40 MILLION TO GET ONE MORE SERVICE CENTER.

IT WAS 1.11 MILLION TO DO WHITE ROCK LAKE DREDGING IS 20 MILLION.

AND I DO SPECIFICALLY WANNA TALK ABOUT WHITELOCK WHITE ROCK LAKE DREDGING BECAUSE WE DO HAVE A COMMITMENT FROM THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS TO MATCH THIS PROJECT, BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE A $20 MILLION MATCH IN THE BOND PROGRAM IN ORDER TO GET THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS MATCH MONEY.

WE COULD DO TWO, TWO NEW RECREATION CENTERS FOR 21.11 MILLION AND THEN HAVE 16.52 MILLION LEFT OVER FOR RECREATION CENTER REHAB.

AND AGAIN, THESE ARE JUST POTENTIAL PROJECTS THAT COULD BE DONE.

A LOT OF THESE WERE BASED ON YOUR PERCENTAGES, WHICH ONES WERE YOUR TOP PERCENTAGES, LIKE THE REC CENTERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND THAT'S KIND OF WHY WE CHOSE SOME OF THESE, UM, CATEGORIES THAT WE DID.

THE OTHER ONES WERE, BECAUSE WE WERE SO CLOSE TO HAVING THE ADDITIONAL MONEY TO DO AN ADDITIONAL FIELD OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, AND THAT WAS KIND OF WHY SOMEBODY CHOSE THEM.

BUT THIS IS PURELY AT YOUR PART BOARD MEMBER DISCRETION AND WHAT YOU AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO THIS IS PURELY AT YOUR DISCRETION.

CAN YOU PLEASE FORWARD THE, UM, NAVIGATE THE ONLINE PRESENTATION.

I'M GETTING TEXTS FROM PEOPLE WATCHING AS WELL AND I CAN'T SEE IT.

I AM SO SORRY, I FORGOT TO START CLICKING.

YOU'RE RIGHT, I APOLOGIZE.

SO HERE'S BASICALLY WHERE WE'RE AT A SLIDE ABOUT.

SO LOOKING AT SLIDES 12 AND 13, BASICALLY WE HAD ASKED THE PARK BOARD MEMBERS TO PROVIDE THEIR TOP 10 PROJECTS.

AND AS I MENTIONED BEFORE WE GOT STARTED, WE HAD SITUATIONS IN SOME CASES WHERE PARK BOARD MEMBERS GIVE SPECIFIC PROJECTS.

AND, UM, SO WE HAD TO END UP PULLING ADDITIONAL PROJECTS OUT OF THE NEEDS INVENTORY TO BASICALLY MAKE UP FOR THOSE WHEN WE WEREN'T NECESSARILY SURE WHICH PROJECTS WOULD BE REQUESTED.

SO ON THIS LIST, BASICALLY IF IT HAS A GREEN DO VALUE, IT MEANS WE ARE UNDER THE PROPOSED BUDGET.

IF IT HAS A RED DOLLAR VALUE, WE'RE ABOVE THE PROPOSED BUDGET AND YOU ALSO SHOULD HAVE BEEN DELIVERED KIND OF A CHEAT SHEET THAT LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE TABLE HERE.

IT ALSO HAS THESE GREEN AND RED NUMBERS AND IT HAS A COLUMN FOR A NEW PROPOSED BUDGET AMOUNT

[01:00:01]

BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT WE CAN'T HAVE EVERYTHING THAT WE WANT AND WE'RE GOING TO PROBABLY HAVE TO REALLOCATE SOME DOLLARS IN THESE BUCKETS.

SO WE WANTED TO TRY AND GIVE YOU AN EASY WAY TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT WITHOUT HAVING TO FLIP BACK AND FORTH ON EVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE DOING.

CHECK.

SO BASICALLY ON OUR A D A COMPLIANCE, UM, WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY PROJECTS REQUESTED THERE.

SO WE HAVE $972,000 THAT COULD BE AVAILABLE ON OUR AGENCY MATCHES.

THERE WAS $27.5 MILLION REQUESTED AND THE BUCKET WAS $3.89 MILLION ON AQUATICS, WHICH INCLUDES BOTH MORATORIUMS AND COMMUNITY POOLS.

BASICALLY WE HAD $51.5 MILLION OF PROJECTS REQUESTED.

AND THE BUDGET 20.23 MILLION ON ATHLETIC FIELD DEVELOPMENT, WE HAD REQUESTS OF 52.252 MILLION AND A BUCKET OF 14.591 MILLION ATHLETIC FIELD LIGHTING.

THE REQUEST WAS 4.615 MILLION AND THE BUDGET IS 5.83.

SO WE'RE UNDER ON THAT ONE.

EROSION CONTROL, THE REQUESTS FOR 6.153 MILLION AND THE BUDGET 4.861.

AND YOU CAN KIND OF READ THROUGH THE REST OF THESE ON THIS PAGE AND ALSO ON YOUR LITTLE CHEAT SHEET OVER HERE, I'M KIND OF LEAVING THIS UP FOR DISPLAY FOR THE PUBLIC THAT CAN SEE THIS.

SO ALL THE WAY DOWN THROUGH PARK AND SITE DEVELOPMENT, WHICH WAS $96.016 MILLION IN REQUESTS WITH A BUDGET, 48.63 MILLION.

AND THEN GOING ON TO PAGE 13, OUR PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE REPLACEMENTS, WE HAD $4.5 MILLION IN REQUESTS WITH A $1.462 MILLION BUDGET.

OUR PLAYGROUNDS $12.08 MILLION IN REQUESTS WITH $5.79 MILLION IN BUDGET AND SO ON, ALL THE WAY DOWN TO TRAIL IMPROVEMENTS, WHICH WAS A $73.126 MILLION ASK WITH A $10.5 MILLION BUDGET.

SO WHAT THIS DID WAS BASICALLY END UP HAVING $974.424 MILLION IN REQUESTS WITH A TOTAL AVAILABLE BUDGET OF 350.

SO THAT'S KIND OF WHY WE SAID WE'RE PROBABLY GONNA HAVE TO START WITH BOOKING AT THE BUCKETS AND REDISTRIBUTING MONEY IN THE BUCKETS AND DECIDING WHAT'S OUR MOST, WHAT, WHAT IS, WHAT IS YOUR MAIN PRIORITY AND WHERE YOU WANT THIS MONEY IN THESE BUCKETS.

SO WHAT OUR NEXT STEPS ARE GONNA BE, THE FIRST ONE IS GONNA BE TO GAIN THIS CONSENSUS ON THE PRIORITIZED PROJECT LIST.

WE DO NEED TO PRESENT PRIORITIZED PROJECT LIST TO THE PARKS AND TRAIL SUBCOMMITTEE ON AUGUST 15TH, DISCUSSION AND EVALUATION.

WE NEED TO PRESENT OUR PRIORITIZED NEEDS INVENTORY TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE PARKS AND CULTURE COMMITTEE ON AUGUST 21ST, 2023.

AND THEN WE DO NEED TO PRESENT OUR FINALIZED ON TASK FORCE PRESENTATION TO THE PARKER TRAIL SUBCOMMITTEE AUGUST 22ND, 2020.

SO THAT REALLY CONCLUDES THE PRESENTATION PART OF THINGS.

AND NEXT WE'RE REALLY GOING TO BE GOING INTO LOOKING AT ACTUAL LISTS, BUT I WANNA OPEN IT UP FOR QUESTIONS AT THIS POINT.

THAT IN, YOU KNOW, I THINK WE HAVE GONE THROUGH THAT AND THERE ARE NO IMMEDIATE QUESTION.

THE WAY I THINK I FEEL WE SHOULD HANDLE IT IS I THINK WE START NOT COUNCIL BY IT FROM THE LANE ITSELF AND GO THROUGH VERY QUICK, UH, WITH OUR CITYWIDE PRIORITY, YOUR, SO LET'S SAY PLANE IS STARTING YOUR CITYWIDE PRIORITY, YOUR COUNCIL PRIORITY, AND YOUR OBJECTIVE FOR THE BOND FOR, UH, THREE MINUTES EACH.

AND THEN WE'LL HAVE THREE ROUNDS OF DISCUSSION IN GENERAL TALKING ABOUT WHAT CHRIS HAS PRESENTED.

SO I ACTUALLY, HE PUT CLOSING IN PERSPECTIVE IF THAT'S OKAY.

SO THAT'S SHARE WE START WITH, UH, LANE AND JUST, UH, GIVE YOUR OVERALL PRIORITIES, UH, FOR THE CITY, FOR YOUR COUNCIL AND YOUR VISION FOR THE BOND.

JUST GO NOT DISTRICT WISE, HARRISON WILL BE NEXT.

COOL.

UM, , UM, I WANT ALL OF THE MONEY , UM, TO ALL DEGREE.

UM, NO, SO, UH, YOU KNOW, SITTING IN THE BOND COMMITTEE MEETINGS DOWNSTAIRS, THE TOP TASK FORCE, I MEAN, I I EVEN THINK THAT 350 MILLION, I HOPE IT DOESN'T GET CUT, IT'S GONNA GET CUT EVEN FURTHER.

SO WE'VE GOT MORE DISCUSSION ABOUT THAT.

BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, I I CITYWIDE WE'VE TALKED A LOT ABOUT PLAYGROUNDS AND IF YOU GO TO MY PAGE HERE, AS I SAID A SECOND AGO WHEN I WAS TALKING TO CHRIS, WE WERE VERY SPECIFIC WHEN WE WENT THROUGH OUR NEEDS AND, AND PICKED A SPECIFIC PROGRAMS, YOU KNOW, NOT JUST, HEY, CAMPBELL GREEN ENLIST EVERYTHING.

UM, YOU'VE HEARD ME TALK A LOT AND WE'VE, I THINK I'VE, WE'VE PRETTY MUCH GOT CONSENSUS FROM EVERYBODY ON THE BOARD ABOUT ROSEMEAD.

UM,

[01:05:01]

THE SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS WE'RE HAVING AT ROSEMEAD STILL WITH PEOPLE BEING ATTACKED.

UM, THERE'S A RUBAL JUST NORTH OF ROSEMEAD, PEOPLE ARE WALKING TO THE PARKING LOT WITH MACHETES AND CHAINSAWS CHASING, UH, PATRONS ING BROTHERHOOD THAT'S DOING STUFF IN ROSEMEAD.

UM, I THINK YOU KNOW, THAT THAT ROSEMEAD PROJECT WOULD BE A REALLY GREAT AMENITY FOR NORTH DALLAS, FOR ALL OF DALLAS, BUT NORTH DALLAS WOULD BE A GOOD REVENUE DRIVER FOR US.

UM, THE OTHER BIG PROJECT WE HAVE IS CAMPBELL GREEN, WHICH INCLUDES THE NATATORIUM.

UM, AND SO THAT, THAT, THAT RECREATION CENTER, WE HAVE A FOUR PART PLAN TO, TO, UH, RENOVATE THAT RECREATION CENTER.

AND REALLY WE, WE COULD, I MEAN WE, WE'VE, WE'VE WORKED A LOT WITH, UH, TRENT AND, AND, AND CHRIS'S TEAM ABOUT CAMPBELL GREEN BECAUSE I MEAN, WE REALLY COULD JUST SCRAPE CAMPBELL GREEN AND START OVER.

UM, BUT WE'RE TRYING TO BE GOOD STEWARDS WITH MONEY AND, AND ADD ON TO CAMPBELL GREEN AND, AND TRY TO SALVAGE CAMPBELL GREEN TO MAKE IT, YOU KNOW, EXCEED ITS LIVABLE LIFE AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW.

AGAIN, THAT'D BE THE ONLY AUDITORIUM, UM, NORTH OF BACHMAN.

UM, AND, AND SO, YOU KNOW, WOULD, WOULD AGAIN BE A, A GOOD DRIVER FOR, FOR THE NORTH PART OF THE CITY.

AND, AND, AND REALLY THE BIGGEST OTHER THINGS WE HAVE LEFT ARE ALL PLAYGROUNDS.

UM, THE MAJORITY OF THE PLAYGROUNDS YOU SEE HERE ARE, ARE WELL PAST THEIR, THEIR LIVABLE LIFE.

UM, VENTURE MEADOW IS MY NEIGHBORHOOD PLAYGROUND.

UM, I, I PLAYED ON FRANKFURT PARK PLAYGROUND WHEN I WAS A KID.

UM, AND IT'S THE SAME PLAYGROUND.

UM, I KNOW THAT THERE'S SOME NOSTALGIA THERE, BUT I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ELSE THAT WE USED TODAY THAT WAS USED IN 1983 THAT WE USED FOR OUR KIDS RIGHT NOW.

UM, AND SO THAT'S, UM, THAT'S DISTURBING THAT THAT'S STILL THERE.

UM, SO YEAH, PLAYGROUNDS, BUT MY, YOU KNOW, MY, FROM THE COUNCIL MEMBER SPEAKING FOR THE COUNCIL MEMBER, UM, AND FOR THE PEOPLE WE'VE HEARD FROM THE DISTRICT, WE WERE VERY POINTED.

AND, AND ROSEMEAD AND CAMPBELL GREEN ARE TOP TWO, UM, DEALS.

I KNOW THEY'RE BIG TICKET ITEMS, UM, BUT THEY, THEY ARE VARIABLE MINUTES.

UM, AND IN THE PLAYGROUNDS, THANK YOU MR. BLA, THERE'S THIS THING.

UM, SEE, HAPPY.

OUR PRIORITIES ARE VERY WELL ALIGNED WITH COMMUNITY.

UH, MR. PRESIDENT, WE TALKED TO A LOT OF RESIDENTS AND SPECIFICALLY KEITH PARK IS, UH, SUCH A HIGH RANK FOR US BECAUSE IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN TO KEITH PARK AND YOU'VE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HOW MANY FAMILIES ARE UTILIZING THAT SPACE AT ONE TIME, JUST ON A REGULAR MONDAY NIGHT OR REGULAR TUESDAY NIGHT, IT'S, IT'S A, A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF FAMILIES JUST CROWDING.

AND YOU CAN'T RIDE A BICYCLE THROUGH SOME OF THE TRAIL SPACES BECAUSE IT'S SUCH A WELL USED PARK.

AND IF YOU GO INTO THE REC FACILITY, UM, IT'S GOT ROOMS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY'RE FROM, UH, 1974, UM, AND I AND YOU, THEY HAVE ALL THESE DIFFERENT CLASSES, LIKE A AEROBICS CLASSES AND THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY PUT IN, UM, A NEW SYSTEM OF HIGH TECH SERVICES THAT WILL SERVE FOLKS.

AND I'VE TALKED TO OUR DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR, UH, MANY STAFF MEMBERS AND BOARD MEMBERS ABOUT WHAT I THINK ABOUT, UM, YOU KNOW, PUTTING IT IN A, IN SPECIFICALLY WIFI NETWORKS AND ALL THESE SPACES, BECAUSE THAT IS THE BASE LEVEL THAT YOU NEED TO ADD ALL OF THE TECHNOLOGY, WHETHER IT'S GATES THAT UNLOCK THEMSELVES FOR ACCESS, WHETHER IT'S NEW, YOU KNOW, LIGHTS THAT COME ON WHEN YOU RESERVE A FIELD, OR WHETHER IT'S LIKE THAT COOL NEW MIRROR THAT COMES UP THAT CAN BE YOUR WORKOUT INSTRUCTOR.

AND SAVE US ON SOME OF THE, THE WAYS THAT WE ENGAGE WITH OUR PARK, UH, OUR PARKS AND OUR TRAILS, UH, AND OUR FACILITIES.

SO THAT'S ONE.

UH, AND WHEN WE GO OUT TO NEIGHBORHOODS, LIKE THROUGH HILLS, THAT IS REALLY CLOSE TO KEITH PARK, AND WE ASK FOLKS WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE, UM, THEY WANT A PREMIER PARK THAT COULD BE, UH, CONSIDERED A WHITE ROCK STATUS, BUT THEY WANT IT IN THE SOUTHERN SECTOR.

AND KEITH PARK SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT TO THE MOST RESIDENTS, UM, IN A, IN A CERTAIN MILE RADIUS.

AND I'M DEFINITELY ONE OF THOSE FOLKS WHO USES KEITH PARK REGULARLY.

SO WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE OF, OF, OF A DEVELOPMENT THERE WITH OUR BRICK FACILITY.

AND THEN WITH CADILLAC HEIGHTS, A PLAN THAT WE HAD UNDER SEVERAL COUNCIL DISTRICTS AGO, UH, OR COUNCIL LEADERSHIP, UH, UH, LEADERS
