[BRIEFINGS ( Part 1 of 2 )]

COMMISSIONERS.

UH, TODAY IS FEBRUARY 1ST, 2024, 9:03 AM WELCOME TO THE BRIEFING OF DATA ESTATE PLANNING COMMISSION.

UH, WE HAVE ONE CUSTOMER HERE THIS MORNING.

GOOD MORNING, MR. BALDWIN.

UH, AS ALWAYS, COMMISSIONERS, AS IS THE TIME FOR QUESTIONS, UH, BETWEEN COMMISSIONERS AND STAFF.

WE'LL GET TO ALL OUR COMMENTS AND DISCUSSION AT THE HEARING STARTING AT 1230.

AND WITH THAT COMMISSIONERS, WE'RE GONNA JUST TAKE IT RIGHT DOWN THE LINE ON THE AGENDA IN ORDER, UH, WE'LL BEGIN WITH THE ANNUAL REPORT BRIEFING BY DR.

AL.

GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING COMMISSIONERS.

SO, UH, THE ANNUAL REPORT, UM, THANK YOU FOR BEARING WITH US.

WE PUT IT TOGETHER, WE CIRCULATED TO YOU ON SUNDAY ON THE NEW END, UH, OLD EMAIL ADDRESSES.

UM, YOU HAVE THE CHAIR'S MEMO THAT IS IN FRONT OF THE REPORT.

UM, WE WERE THINKING TODAY TO GO THROUGH THE MISSION STATEMENTS, THE CHAIR PROPOSED BASED ON YOUR INPUT.

AND, UH, WHERE IS THE CHAIR PROPOSED? THREE ALTERNATIVES.

UM, I'LL GO BACK TO THAT IN A SECOND.

THEN YOU HAVE, OBVIOUSLY THE NUMBERS IN THE PAGES.

AND THEN, UM, IF YOU LOOK AT THE EXCEL SPREADSHEET, A VERY DETAILED, UM, VIEW OF THE CASES THAT WERE UNDER THE ZONING CASES THAT WERE UNDER CONSIDERATION WITH CITY PLAN COMMISSION, THE, UH, FISCAL YEAR 22, 23.

SO WE PUT IT AS A BRIEFING BECAUSE WE WANTED TO SEE WHICH ONE OF THE MISSION STATEMENTS YOU WANT TO PUT FORWARD.

I CAN READ THE THREE OF THEM IF YOU WANT TO.

UM, I WOULD LIKE, LIKE A LITTLE NOD BEING THE BRIEFING.

WE WON'T VOTE RIGHT NOW.

I WOULD LIKE A LITTLE NOD TO SEE WHICH ONE DO YOU THINK IT SHOULD BE IN THE REPORT.

THEN WE'LL GET THE REPORT READY AND THEN HAVE IT THE FIRST ON THE AGENDA IN THE AFTERNOON SO WE CAN VOTE AND SUBMIT IT TODAY.

UH, JUST ONE QUICK LITTLE COMMENT AND THANK ALL THE, THE COMMISSIONERS THAT SENT WORDS IN.

I KNOW, UH, SOME OF YOU EVEN SENT A SAMPLE MISSION STATEMENT.

SO WHAT YOU SEE THERE, THE, THE THREE OPTIONS ARE KIND OF THE, UH, THE STUFF THAT I RECEIVED FROM YOU AND I TRIED TO PUT THEM TOGETHER IN A RATIONAL WAY.

UH, AND THEN, UH, I ALSO INCLUDED THE, THE MISSION STATEMENT THAT'S ON THE WEBSITE, AND THAT'S WHAT'S AT THE VERY TOP, UM, WHICH FRANKLY SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD TO ME.

UM, ALSO, OF COURSE, I, I HAD TO PUT IT INTO CHAT, GPT AND, UM, DIDN'T QUITE GET ANYTHING BACK THAT WAS WORTH PLACING HERE IN FRONT OF YOU GUYS.

UH, IT DID SOUND A LITTLE MECHANICAL, UH, BUT I'M, UH, WELCOME TO TAKE INPUT INTO ANY OF THESE.

UH, WE CAN CHOOSE ONE, WE CAN COMBINE ONE OF THE THREE WITH ANOTHER ONE.

IT'S REALLY UP TO YOU.

ANY PREFERENCES? COMMISSIONER HALL? MY PREFERENCE WAS NUMBER TWO.

MY, MY PREFERENCE IS NUMBER TWO AS WELL.

[00:05:03]

WHILE YOU ARE, UM, LOOKING AT THEM, I CAN READ THE MONEY OUT INTO THE RECORD.

SO THE FIRST OPTION, THE, THE CURRENT MISSION STATEMENT IS, CITY PLAN COMMISSION IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE CITY COUNCIL REGARDING PLANNING AND ZONING MATTERS, AND FOR ADMINISTERING CHAPTER 2 1 2 OF THE TEXAS LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE REGARDING THE PLANNING AND RECORDING OF SUBDIVISION AND ADDITIONS.

IT IS THROUGH THIS PLANNING FOR AND REGULATION OF LAND DEVELOPMENT THAT THE CITY PLAN COMMISSION ACHIEVES ITS LAND USE PLANNING OBJECTIVES.

THIS IS THE ONE THAT'S CURRENTLY'S LISTED ON OUR WEBSITE.

WE HAVE THREE ALTERNATIVES THERE.

THEY'RE BASED ON THE WORDS AND STATEMENTS SUBMITTED BY THE COMMISSIONERS.

THE FIRST OPTION IS THE DALLAS CITY PLAN COMMISSION ADVISES THE CITY COUNCIL ON ZONING CASES AND LAND USE PLANNING WHILE ADMINISTERING CHAPTER TWO AND TWO OF THE TEXAS LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE.

OUR MISSION IS TO FOSTER A THRIVING INCLUSIVE CITY THAT EVOLVES RESPONSIBLY TO MEET RESIDENTS' NEEDS AND EMBRACES INNOVATION.

THROUGH COLLAB COLLABORATION, WE SHAPE DY A DYNAMIC URBAN LANDSCAPE THAT REFLECT OUR DIVERSE COMMUNITIES' VALUES.

THIS IS THE FIRST ONE, THE SECOND ONE THAT ALREADY RECEIVED TWO, UM, ENDORSEMENTS.

THE CITY PLAN COMMISSION ADVISES THE CITY COUNCIL ON ZONING AND LAND USE MATTERS, UH, GUIDED BY VALUES SUCH AS DATA DRIVEN DECISION MAKING, RESEARCH, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND SUSTAINABILITY.

OUR MISSION IS TO FOSTER A THRIVING, SUSTAINABLE CITY THROUGH IMPARTIAL LEADERSHIP, ENSURING RESPONSIBLE GROWTH THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF OUR DIVERSE COMMUNITY, COMMITTED TO TRANSPARENCY AND INTEGRITY.

WE STRIVE TO SHAPE A DYNAMIC URBAN LANDSCAPE THAT REFLECTS THE VALUES OF CITY OF DALLAS RESIDENTS.

AND THEN THE THIRD, THE CITY PLAN COMMISSION IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS TO CITY COUNCIL REGARDING PLANNING AND ZONING MATTERS, AND FOR ADMINISTERING CHAPTER TWO AND TWO OF THE TEXAS LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE REGARDING THE PLANNING AND RECORDING OF SUBDIVISION AND ADDITIONS.

IT IS THROUGH THIS PLANNING AND RE FOR AND REGULATION OF LAND DEVELOPMENT THAT THE CITY PLAN COMMISSION ACHIEVES ITS LAND USE PLANNING OBJECTIVES.

OUR MISSION IS TO FOSTER A THRIVING, SUSTAINABLE CITY THROUGH IMPARTIAL LEADERSHIP, ENSURING RESPONSIBLE GROWTH THAT MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR DIVERSE COMMUNITY, COMMUNITY TO TRANSPARENCY AND INTEGRITY.

WE STRIVE TO SHAPE A DYNAMIC URBAN LANDSCAPE THAT REFLECTS THE VALUES OF DALLAS RESIDENTS COMMISSIONER HOUSE.

RIGHT.

PLEASE.

I, I WOULD'VE TO AGREE.

I THINK THE SECOND OPTION'S THE STRONGEST.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER CARPENTER? I PREFER, UH, I'M, I, OKAY.

I'M SORRY.

I REALLY PREFER THE ONE THAT JUST APPEARS NOW ON THE CITY WEBSITE.

ANY OTHER OPINIONS? COMMISSIONER? THIS IS, UH, COMMISSIONER HERBERT.

I, COMMISSIONER HERBERT, LIKE NUMBER TWO? NUMBER TWO AS WELL.

OKAY.

THIS IS COMMISSIONER HAWK.

I'D LIKE NUMBER TWO WITH TWO SMALL GRAMMATICAL CHANGES.

OKAY.

UM, THE FIRST IS JUST, UH, THAT FIRST SENTENCE.

THE DALLAS CITY PLAN COMMISSION ADVISES THE CITY COUNCIL ON ZONING AND LAND MATTERS GUIDED BY DECISION DRIVEN OR DATA DRIVEN DECISION MAKING, ET CETERA, ET CETERA.

AND THEN THAT LAST SENTENCE, COMMITTED TO THE TRANSPARENCY AND INTEGRITY, WE STRIVE TO SHAPE A DYNAMIC URBAN LANDSCAPE THAT REFLECTS THE VALUES AND NEEDS OF DALLAS RESIDENTS.

OKAY.

THAT'S NICE QUESTION.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER BLAIR, IN ORDER TO, TO REPRESENT ALL OF DISTRICT EIGHT, THERE IS A MAJOR PORTION OF DISTRICT EIGHT THAT, THAT HAS ISSUE WITH THE WORD URBAN.

I GET THAT.

THAT, UM, AND, AND THEIR, THEIR GOAL IS NEVER TO BECOME URBAN, BUT TO STAY RURAL AND IN, IN CER IN MAKING IT ALL THAT, ALL OF THE CITY URBAN, THAT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT REPRESENTS A MAJOR SEC SECTION OF MY, OF MY DISTRICT.

SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO REWORD THAT.

UM, AND I GET THAT THE MAJ MAJORITY OF THE CITY IS IN LOOKING AT AN URBAN LANDSCAPE.

AND I DO HAVE SECTIONS OF THE CITY THAT'S ALSO LOOKING AT AN URBAN LANDSCAPE.

BUT I CAN'T REPRESENT THE, I CAN'T REPRESENT A PORTION OF THE DISTRICT.

I HAVE TO REPRESENT ALL OF THE DISTRICT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

WHAT IF THAT WORD JUST GOT REMOVED? COMMISSIONER

[00:10:01]

HAWK? PARDON ME? JUST WHAT IF YOU JUST TOOK OUT AND IT'S JUST A DYNAMIC LANDSCAPE? I, I GET THAT, AND I, AND JUST LET ME SAY THIS, I DO LIKE NUMBER TWO THE BEST, AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT SUGGESTION.

UH, COMMISSIONER HAWK TO SHAPE A DYNAMIC LANDSCAPE.

OKAY.

THAT READS KIND OF AWKWARD, RIGHT? I I, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT READS FOR ME, YOU KNOW? YEAH, I, I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE PORTIONS, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN, IN, UH, OF THE CITY, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN COMMISSIONER BLAIR'S DISTRICT THAT HAVE A, A RURAL IDENTITY.

BUT AS, AS THE NINTH LARGEST CITY IN THE COUNTRY, I DO THINK, YOU KNOW, KEEPING THE CONCEPT OF AN URBAN DYNA DYNAMIC URBAN LANDSCAPE IS IMPORTANT TO OUR MISSION.

YOU KNOW, AT THE SAME TIME, I DON'T THINK THAT THIS MISSION STATEMENT CALLS FOR ANY PORTION OF THE CITY THAT'S CURRENTLY RURAL TO BE URBANIZED RIGHT NOW.

SO I, I SEE THAT MAYBE THERE'S SOME PARDON.

IN OUR ZONING CASES, YES, THEY DO WORK TO URBANIZE THE RURAL SECTION OF MY DISTRICT.

AND YOUR, YOUR MICROPHONE'S NOT ON COMES FROM THAT, I'M SORRY.

IN, IN ZONING CASES THAT WE, THAT I HAVE HAD, THERE HAS BEEN A PUSH TO URBANIZE IT AND MAKE IT WALKABLE.

AND THAT IS WHERE I GET THE MOST PUSHBACK FROM THAT, FROM THE CLEAVER RILEY AREA, BECAUSE THE, EVEN THE, THE SAYING URBAN TO THEM IS A SLIGHT AND, AND OF, AND AN OFFENSE.

AND EVEN IF I LOSE THIS, AND I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT, I HAVE TO GO ON RECORD REPRESENTING ALL OF MY DISTRICT AND THAT MAJOR SECTION.

I, I, I'VE WORKED, I HAD A ZONING CASE WHERE I WORKED WITH THE, THE, THE, THE APPLICANT ALL WEEKEND LONG REMOVING ALL THE URBAN THAT, THAT WAS RECOMMENDED TO BE, TO BE PUT IN THAT PD.

UNDERSTOOD.

AND AGAIN, WE HAVE, I THINK, LARGELY VOTED AGAINST CASES THAT, THAT HAVE SOUGHT TO URBANIZE THE KLEBERG RILEY AREAS.

AND I THINK WITH THIS LANGUAGE REMAINING IN THERE, I THINK WE CAN STILL, YOU KNOW, I LIKE THE FACT THAT IF IT'S DYNAMIC FOR ALL THAT IT MEANS, THEN, THEN IT REPRESENTS THE LANDSCAPE OF ALL AREAS OF THE CITY, WHETHER IT BE URBAN, WHETHER IT BE RURAL, WHETHER IT BE, UM, UM, ANY KIND OF AREA, WHETHER IT BE THE WEST, THE EAST, THE SOUTH, THE NORTH.

IF YOU JUST LEAVE IT AT THE WORD DYNAMIC, IT REPRESENTS ALL AREAS OF THE CITY.

IT JUST READS TO ME AS, AS, AS, I DON'T KNOW IF IT READS WELL TO ME AS JUST A DYNAMIC LANDSCAPE AND GIVEN, YOU KNOW, THE VAST PROPORTION OF OUR CITY BEING URBAN, I THINK A NOD TO A DYNAMIC URBAN LANDSCAPE IS, IS IMPORTANT IN THIS DOCUMENT.

BUT OBVIOUSLY WE SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY, WHICH IS FINE.

COMMISSIONER HOUSE.

RIGHT.

UM, I THINK I UNDERSTAND WHERE COMMISSIONER BLAIR'S COMING FROM, BUT I STILL LIKE THE WORD URBAN.

I TAKE IT AS THE URBAN, THE CONTEXT OF IT AS BEING THE MOST BROAD DEFINITION OF URBAN.

IT'S NOT NECESSARILY C, B, D, HIGH DENSITY.

UH, I MEAN, I THINK OF, UH, A, A TOWN OF 5,000 PEOPLE IN, UH, YOU KNOW, THE WEST TEXAS IS URBAN.

AND, AND TO ME IT SPEAKS TO THE, JUST THE FACT THAT THERE IS A COMPLEX NETWORK OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MULTIPLE PROPERTIES AND USES.

AND OUR JOB IS TO, UM, EXERCISE JUDGMENT OVER THAT.

WHETHER I, YOU KNOW, I, I THINK DISTRICT EIGHT IS URBAN IN THAT CONTEXT, IN THE, IN THE USE OF THE WORD THAT, THAT WAY.

SO I DON'T WANNA SPEND AN ORBIT AMOUNT OF TIME ON THIS.

COMMISSIONER HALL'S NEXT.

PARDON ME? COMMISSIONER HALL.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

WELL, JUST LOOKING@THEDICTIONARY.COM DEFINITION, IT SAYS, URBAN OF PERTAINING TO OR DESIGNATING A CITY OR TOWN LIVING IN A CITY.

AND THE WAY I LOOK AT IT, I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD GET TOO DETAILS IF WE'RE IN THE CITY LIMITS, WE'RE IN AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT,

[00:15:01]

REGARDLESS OF THE MAKEUP OF THAT, UH, PARTICULAR AREA.

OKAY.

SO, I, UH, I THINK I WAS IN THE MINORITY THAT WAS FOR, TO JUST KEEP WHAT WE HAD ON THE WEBSITE, BUT IT, IT SOUNDS LIKE WE ARE NUMBER TWO IS, UH, KIND OF THE DIRECTION THAT WE'RE GOING WITH THE, UH, ADDITION OF AND NEEDS IN THE LAST SENTENCE, THE VALUES AND NEEDS OF DALLAS RESIDENTS.

ANY OTHER ADJUSTMENTS? SO WE'LL NEED TO, UM, TAKE A VOTE ON THAT NOW, OR DO WE NEED TO NO, IT'S A BRIEFING.

IT'S JUST A BRIEFING.

OKAY.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, COMMISSIONERS.

WE'LL GO WITH NUMBER TWO I, ANDREA, AND NOW WE'LL GO TO OUR BRIEFING OF FORT DALLAS.

MR. AGU.

GOOD MORNING, SIR.

ALRIGHT, GOOD MORNING COMMISSIONERS.

UH, LAWRENCE SAGU, PLANNING, URBAN DESIGN, CHIEF PLANNER AND PROJECT MANAGER OF, UH, FORD DALLAS.

UH, SO TODAY WE'RE GOING TO DO A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAILED, UH, OVERVIEW OF FORD DALLAS, JUST TO GET EVERYBODY UP TO SPEED IN TERMS OF WHAT WE'VE DONE SO FAR, UH, WHAT WE'RE CURRENTLY DEVELOPING, AND THE REQUEST FROM THIS BODY.

UH, BEFORE I BEGIN, UM, GIVE AN OVERVIEW.

I WANT TO, UH, OPEN THE FLOOR TO, UH, VICE CHAIR RUBEN, UH, UH, JUST TO GIVE A QUICK OVERVIEW IN TERMS OF HIS EXPERIENCE WITHIN, UH, WHEN HE WAS AT CLUB, UM, AND PROVIDE AN OVERVIEW FROM HIS FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE BEFORE WE DELVE INTO STAFF'S OVERVIEW.

UH, YEAH, CLUFF WAS, WAS CERTAINLY A MARATHON, NOT A SPRINT.

I THINK WE MET 27 TIMES OVER THE COURSE OF A, OF A TWO YEAR PERIOD.

AND THAT WAS SEPARATE AND APART FROM ALL OF THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT THAT CITY STAFF DID, I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND SOME OF THOSE COMMUNITY MEETINGS, BUT CERTAINLY WASN'T ABLE TO ATTEND EVERYONE.

AND, YOU KNOW, AS WE DISCUSSED, PROBABLY, GOSH, THIS MUST HAVE BEEN THREE YEARS, THREE PLUS YEARS AGO, WHEN WE WERE, YOU KNOW, FIRST TALKING ABOUT REWRITING THE COMP PLAN OR UPDATING THE COMP PLAN.

YOU KNOW, WE HAD A WIDE RANGE OF FOLKS WITH, UH, VERY DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND EXPERIENCES FROM, YOU KNOW, ARCHITECTS TO, UM, FOLKS WHO, YOU KNOW, HAVE EXPERIENCE IN DEVELOPMENT TO SORT OF RACIAL JUSTICE ADVOCATES.

AND, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY EVERY MEMBER OF CLUB LIVED IN A DIFFERENT AND DYNAMIC NEIGHBORHOOD IN DALLAS.

SO WE HAD A, A REALLY WIDE RANGE OF FOLKS WHO GAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT FEEDBACK ON, UM, THE DOCUMENT AND A, A COUPLE DIFFERENT ITERATIONS OF THE DOCUMENT, IN FACT.

UM, AND WE ULTIMATELY SET THE, SENT THE DOCUMENT FORWARD, UM, AFTER OUR JANUARY 9TH MEETING, UH, WITH, WITH SOME COMMENTS.

AND I KNOW STAFF IS WORKING ON A THIRD UPDATE VERSION THAT WILL REFLECT SOME OF THE COMMENTS.

UM, IN PARTICULAR, I WOULD SAY AT THOSE LAST TWO MEETINGS, WE REALLY FOCUSED ON, UM, WHAT MR. MC, WE WILL TALK ABOUT BEING, YOU KNOW, THE RESIDENTIAL PLACE TYPES, WHICH I'M SURE MANY OF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT FROM VARIOUS, UM, SOURCES AS OF LATE, BECAUSE THAT SEEMED TO BE A HOT TOPIC OF DISCUSSION.

AND ALSO, YOU KNOW, A MAJOR THING THAT WE ADDRESSED IN THE DRAFT WAS ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE ISSUES, AND PARTICULARLY, YOU KNOW, RESIDENTIAL USES.

AND IN CLOSE, UM, PROXIMITY TO INCOMPATIBLE INDUSTRIAL USE IS PARTICULARLY CONCENTRATED IN, YOU KNOW, AREAS, UH, WHERE, WHERE THE POPULATION IS, YOU KNOW, CONCENTRATED IN PEOPLE OF COLOR.

SO WE, WE REALLY ARE LOOKING AT, UM, THE COMP PLAN AS A TOOL TO ADDRESS THOSE, UM, INDUSTRIAL INCOMPATIBILITIES,

[00:20:01]

UH, MR. GU AND, AND HIS TEAM CAN SPEAK MUCH MORE ELOQUENTLY TO ALL OF THIS THAN I AM, BUT OVERALL, IT WAS A, A LONG ROAD.

IT WAS A GOOD ROAD.

AND, AND WE'RE HAPPY TO HAVE THIS HERE AT, AT THE PLAN COMMISSION FOR Y'ALL TO, UM, DIG INTO.

UM, YOU KNOW, I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO PRINT IT OUT.

IT'S A REALLY, YOU KNOW, PROBABLY A 60 PAGE DOCUMENT AT THIS POINT THAT, YOU KNOW, IN SOME POINTS, POINTS, YOU KNOW, SPEAK SET UP, YOU KNOW, VERY HIGH LEVEL.

BUT THERE ALSO IS SOME TEXT THAT DIG INTO AND I, YOU KNOW, WELCOME EVERYONE'S FEEDBACK AND, AND COMMENTS AS WE GO THROUGH THIS NEXT ROUND OF REVIEW AND EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE PLAN COMMISSION DOES WITH IT.

ALRIGHT, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

UH, SO THAT WE'RE GONNA JUST JUMP STRAIGHT INTO OUR DISCUSSION.

UH, SO AGAIN, THE PURPOSE OF TODAY IS TO PROVIDE AN OVERVIEW, A BIT MORE DETAILED OVERVIEW, UH, THAN WE PROVIDED LAST TIME RELATED TO THE FOR DALLAS PLAN.

UH, ITS CONTENTS, THE PURPOSE, UH, WHY WE'RE HERE, AND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR THIS, UH, COMMITTEE TO HELP COMMISSION TO HELP DEVELOP.

SO, WE'RE GONNA FIRST TOUCH ON THE RELEVANCE OF FORD DALLAS.

UH, WE'RE GONNA DELVE INTO THE STRUCTURE OF HOW WE'VE, UH, ORGANIZED THE PLAN DOCUMENT, UM, HOW TO USE THE PLAN, UH, SPECIFICALLY LOOKING AT HOW STAFF AND THIS COMMISSION, UH, WE'VE USED THE PLAN.

AND THEN FURTHER QUESTIONS TO INVESTIGATE THROUGH OUR DISCUSSIONS, UH, WITH YOU ALL OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

UH, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO PINPOINT AND PREPARE YOU ALL FOR HOPEFULLY SOME ROBUST DISCUSSION, UM, THROUGH THIS, THROUGH THIS PUR UH, THROUGH THIS, UH, PROCESS AND THE NEXT STEPS FOR THE PROJECT.

UH, SO WHY FOR DALLAS, UH, ONE PROJECTED GROWTH.

Y'ALL HAVE HEARD US SAY THIS MULTIPLE TIMES.

THAT SUPPOSED TO BE ADDING 300,000 PEOPLE TO THE CITY IN THE NEXT 20, 25 YEARS.

THAT'S THE CITY OF PLANO COMING INSIDE THE CITY OF DALLAS.

UH, THESE ARE COG PROJECTIONS.

SO BY THE TIME 20 20, 20 45 ROLLS AROUND THE POPULATION SHOULD BE 1.6 MILLION PEOPLE.

UH, SO WE'RE LOOKING TO THINK ABOUT HOW DO WE PLAN AND THINK ABOUT OUR LAND USES TO ACCOMMODATE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE NOT BURDENING ANY PORTION OF THE CITY, UM, AS WE CONTINUE TO GROW.

TWO, UM, OUR CURRENT LAND USE POLICY IS PIECEMEAL AND AGING.

UH, SO AS WE LOOK AT ALL THE DIFFERENT PLANS THAT WE HAVE IN THE CITY, UM, THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE OLDER THAN I AM, THERE ARE SOME THAT WERE CREATED BEFORE I EVEN EXISTED.

UM, SO IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT, UH, WHAT'S RELEVANT FROM THOSE PLANS AND HOW DO WE APPLY, UM, CURRENT, UM, THOUGHTS ABOUT LAND USES TO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT NOW.

UH, SOME OF YOU ALL MIGHT SAY, WELL, WE DO HAVE A PLAN THAT EXISTS THAT COVERS THE CITY.

UH, KIND OF, UH, SO 2006, UH, THE, THE CURRENT PLAN ON THE GROUND, THE, THE PLAN WAS DEVELOPED AND IT COVERED THE CITY.

BUT A FEW THINGS THAT WERE KIND OF OFF WITH THAT.

ONE, IT'S EXPLICITLY SAID IN THIS PLAN DOCUMENT THAT THIS IS NOT A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN MAP.

UH, F OH, I GUESS IN OTHER WORDS, OF SAYING THAT THIS IS NOT A FUTURE LAND USE MAP.

SO HAVING A, A MAP THAT SAYS THIS IS NOT A FUTURE LAND USE MAP KIND OF AN ISSUE.

TWO, IT, IT KIND OF CONTINUES TO SAY THIS IS JUST AN ILLUSTRATION.

SO IT'S NOT EVEN A MAP, IT'S JUST A PRETTY PICTURE IN A SENSE.

UM, THIS IS KIND OF TAKING AWAY WHAT IT COULD HAVE DONE, UH, TO HELP WITH PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE CITY.

AND ALSO IT SAYS, THIS DOES NOT INDICATE OFFICIAL CITY RELATED, UH, EXCUSE ME, THIS DOES NOT INDICATE OFFICIAL CITY POLICY RELATED TO SPECIFIC SITES OR AREAS.

SO BASICALLY THE DEFINITION OF A MAP, UM, IT BASICALLY STATED ON THIS PARTICULAR MAP THAT THIS ISN'T THAT.

SO THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO, TO NOTE THAT AS WE'RE LOOKING AT THE CURRENT FORD DALLAS PLAN AND WHAT IT ACTUALLY SAYS AND DOESN'T SAY, UM, THAT'S TAKEN AWAY WHAT IT COULD HAVE DONE FOR, UH, DEVELOPMENT REVIEW AND THE PLANNING OF THE CITY OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS.

UM, ALSO SOMEONE MIGHT SAY, WELL, OKAY, WE HAVE AREA PLANS THAT HAVE COVERED THAT KIND OF, UH, SO BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE A, A FUTURE COMPREHENSIVE MAP, UM, THAT DID WHAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO DO, OTHERS STARTED TO DEVELOP AREA PLANS IN THE CITY.

UH, THIS SHOWS A COMPOSITE OF ALL THE AREA PLANS THAT WE ANALYZE DURING THIS PROCESS.

AS YOU CAN NOTICE, THERE'S A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT COLORS.

UM, THEY DON'T COVER THE ENTIRE CITY.

UM, AND AS WE LOOK INTO WHAT THE STATE SAYS ABOUT COMP PLAN, THERE'S TWO TWO WAYS YOU CAN GO ABOUT A COMP PLAN.

ONE, YOU CAN CREATE A PLAN THAT COVERS THE ENTIRE CITY, WHICH YOU DON'T HAVE, OR YOU CAN CREATE MULTIPLE AREA PLANS THAT AS A COMPOSITE COVERS THE ENTIRE CITY.

WE ALSO DON'T HAVE THAT.

SO AS WE'RE LOOKING AT OUR CURRENT FOUR DALLAS PLAN, UNDER THE CURRENT DEFINITIONS OF A COMP PLAN, WE ACTUALLY DON'T REALLY HAVE ONE.

SO THAT'S WHY IT'S VERY CRITICAL THAT WE ONE, GET ONE THAT'S DONE PROPERLY AND ONE THAT COVERS THE ENTIRE CITY AND PROVIDES PREDICTABILITY IN TERMS OF WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT FROM A CITY PLANNING PERSPECTIVE.

SO THIRDLY, UM, THE PURPOSE OF THIS IS

[00:25:01]

TO CREATE THAT LAND USE GUIDANCE TO HELP PREDICTABLY UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE CITY.

SO THAT PREVIOUS PLAN THAT I SHOWED HAD DIFFERENT YELLOWS, DIFFERENT COLORS THAT MEANT DIFFERENT THINGS.

THE IDEA WITH WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT NOW AND TRYING TO DEVELOP IS A CONSISTENT LANGUAGE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE CITY AS THE BASELINE, UH, TO THINK THROUGH WHAT THE FUTURE LOOKS LIKE MOVING FORWARD.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, UH, WE ARE TYING IN, UH, CURRENT POLICIES, UM, INTO WHAT WE'RE DEVELOPING.

SO FROM THE RACIAL EQUITY PLAN TO THE HOUSING PLAN, THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT POLICY, THEY'VE PINPOINTED FOR DALLAS TO DO SPECIFIC THINGS, UH, THROUGH OUR PLAN.

SO FROM THE RACIAL EQUITY PLAN FOR DALLAS SHOULD, UM, HELP IDENTIFY, YOU KNOW, MIXED USE LAND USES AND HISTORICALLY DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES, UM, PROPOSING ZONING TO INCREASE WALKABLE AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

THE DALLAS HOUSING POLICY FOR DALLAS TO WORK TO INCREASE THE PRODUCTION OF HOUSING IN A TARGETED MANNER THAT ALIGNS WITH THE PLAN, THE ECO DEVELOPMENT POLICY, UH, LAND USE THROUGH FOR DALLAS WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, UH, SHOULD HEIGHTEN JOB CREATION AT THE NEIGHBORHOOD LEVEL IN TANDEM WITH REDEVELOPMENT EFFORTS OF AGING COMMERCIAL CENTERS.

CONNECT DALLAS, UM, FOR DALLAS SHOULD BE BASICALLY AT THE, AT THE CORE OF LOOKING AT THE IMPACTS OF VEHICLE MILES TRAVELED AND MODE SPLITS AS INDICATORS OF LAND USE SCENARIOS.

AND CCAP, AS WE ALL KNOW, UH, DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE STRATEGY IN, IN, IN THE UPCOMING COMP PLAN, UH, TO UPDATE AND PAIR WITH THE STRATEGIC MOBILITY PLAN CAP GOALS AND ADOPT A POLICY TO REDUCE GHG EMISSIONS.

SO AS WE'RE LOOKING AT ALL THESE OTHER PLANS THAT WERE ADOPTED IN THE LAST THREE TO FOUR YEARS, BASICALLY EVERY YEAR A PLAN HAS COME THROUGH THE CITY, UM, THAT HAS PINPOINTED FOUR DOWS TO DO SOMETHING RELATED TO, UH, LAND USE AND ALSO TO MOVE THE NEEVA FORWARD WITH THE POLICIES THAT THEY HAD IN THOSE PLANS.

UH, SO AS WE ARE KINDA GETTING AN IDEA OF WHY WE'RE DOING THIS, I WANNA ALSO THEN FAST FORWARD TO WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW WITH THE CURRENT PLAN DOCUMENT.

UH, SO THIS ILLUSTRATION JUST SHOWS THE FOUR MAJOR SECTIONS OF THE PLAN DOCUMENT.

UH, ONE, THE LAND USE THEMES, UH, TWO, THE PLACE TYPE DESCRIPTIONS, UH, THREE, THE PLACE TYPE MAP, AND THEN FOUR, THE IMPLEMENTATION SECTION.

SO THROUGH THE LAST FEW YEARS, CLUB, AS VICE CHAIR RUBIN HAS MENTIONED, HAS HELPED DEVELOP EACH OF THESE SECTIONS WITH A FOCUS ON THE LAND USE THEMES AND THE PLACE TYPE DESCRIPTIONS.

THEY ALSO DELVED INTO SOME MAP DISCUSSIONS AND SOME IMPLEMENTATION DISCUSSIONS.

BUT THIS BODY CPC, WE'RE GONNA BE ASKING YOU ALL TO FOCUS ON THE PLACE TYPE MAP MORE IN DEPTH AND ALSO TO THE IMPLEMENTATION SECTION ABOUT HOW DO WE MOVE THE GOALS FORWARD, UH, IN, IN REAL, IN IN OUR POLICIES.

AND IN WHEN YOU ALL WILL REVIEW IN CASES, SO THE IMPLEMENTATION, THAT'S THE, THE PURPOSE OF THIS BODY, WE'RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT WHAT THOSE, UM, ACTION ITEMS SAY AND HOW YOU ALL GOING TO CAN HELP MOVE THAT FORWARD, UH, WITH, WITH OUR DISCUSSIONS.

UH, SO HOW, HOW'S THIS PLAN USED? WHAT'S, WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS PLAN AND OUR, AND OUR CURRENT PLAN? SO WE'RE GONNA TOUCH ABOUT TOUCH ON, UH, DEVELOPMENT REVIEW, UH, IMPLEMENTATION OF CITY PRIORITIES, RESPONDING TO COMMUNITY CONCERNS, AND HOW DO WE RESPOND TO CHANGES THAT ARE NEEDED IN THE PLAN.

SO, UH, WE'RE GONNA, YOU GONNA HEAR WHAT MY TEAM SAY THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

UH, PLACE TYPES AREN'T ZONING, BUT I'M GONNA DELVE INTO A BIT MORE, UH, DETAIL AND, UM, HOW THAT IS.

SO PLACE TYPES, THEY PROVIDE THE NON-REGULATORY FUTURE LAND USE GUIDANCE ON HOW A COMMUNITY SHOULD LOOK LIKE WHILE ZONING IS THE REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS FOR HOW A PROPERLY MUST BE DEVELOPED.

SO THE, THE IDEA BETWEEN A VISION, THE SHOULDS VERSUS THE REQUIREMENTS, THE MUSTS.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WANT TO DRILL DOWN, UH, PRETTY HEAVILY TO CLARIFY THE PURPOSE OF ONE OF THESE.

UH, AND ALSO YOU MIGHT BE HEARING TOO THAT, YOU KNOW, SOME MIGHT SAY, WHY DO WE NEED TO CONTINUE WITH FORWARD DALLAS? WE CAN JUST, YOU KNOW, CONTINUE WITH THE ZONING UPDATES, CODE REFORM UPDATES, LET'S DO THAT IN TANDEM, OR LET'S DO THAT FIRST.

UM, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT IN TERMS OF CREATING A PLAN OR, UH, SOMETHING WITH DIMENSIONS THAT DOESN'T HAVE A PURPOSE OR VISION.

SO THE, THE SHOULD VERSUS THE MUSTS, THAT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT THE VISIONARY ASPECTS OF WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO BUILD.

UM, INSTEAD OF JUST LOOKING AT ONE OF THOSE IN, IN, UM, SECLUSION OCCLUSION.

AND JUST A NOTE, YOU KNOW, LAND USE GUIDES ZONING, BUT LAND USE DOES NOT CREATE ZONING.

SO ANOTHER REASON WHY, UH, THIS IS GONNA HELP WITH DEVELOPMENT REVIEW, WE'RE GONNA TALK THROUGH A, UH, A MOCK CASE, UH, FOR EXAMPLE, JUST TO THINK THROUGH THE PURPOSE OF THIS FOR DALLAS VERSUS FOR DALLAS 2006.

SO AS WE LOOK AT THIS QUICK CHART, UH, TALKS THROUGH HOW A ZONING APPLICATION COMES THROUGH THE CITY FROM THE APPLICANT TO THE STAFF TO CPC

[00:30:01]

AND COUNCIL, UH, I WANNA FOCUS ON STAFF'S REVIEW OF, UH, A DEVELOPMENT CASE.

UH, SO CURRENTLY NOW WE'RE LOOKING AT, UM, THE FOUR DOWS 2006 VERSUS FOUR DOWS, UH, 2.0.

UH, SO 4,000, 2006, THERE'S A LOCATION THAT EXISTS.

THIS, THIS A LOCATION IS ACTUALLY IN DISTRICT FOUR, UH, WHICH I DON'T THINK WE'RE COVERING WITH OUR COMMISSIONS HERE.

SO IT'S ACTUALLY A GOOD CONVERSATION TO TALK ABOUT.

WE'RE LOOKING AT A LOCATION THAT IS IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA, UM, THAT IS ALONG A COMMERCIAL CORRIDOR THAT IS ALONG A CREEK AND ALONG A TOD CORRIDOR.

UH, SO FOUR 2006, UM, THE PEN THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE PUTS THAT LOCATION RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THOSE THINGS.

SO AS STAFF REVIEWS THIS, UH, IT'S A CASE THAT COULD BE RESIDENTIAL, COULD BE COMMERCIAL, COULD BE OPEN SPACE, COULD BE WATER.

UM, THIS IS ACTUALLY A COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT, UM, THAT'S COME THROUGH, UM, THROUGH THE, THROUGH THE, UH, THROUGH THIS BODY.

UH, SO AS WE'RE LOOKING AT THE 2006 VERSUS 2000, UH, TWO, 2.0, WE CAN SEE THAT THE 2006, THIS PROVIDES UNCLARITY IN TERMS OF WHAT LANE USAGE SHOULD EXIST IN THAT AREA.

SO AS THAT MOVES FORWARD, AS STAFF REVIEWS THOSE CASES, YOU ALL GET THOSE CASES, UM, AND RECOMMENDATIONS WITH A PLETHORA OF DIFFERENT OPTIONS JUST BECAUSE THE MAP AND THE POLICY GUIDANCE IS VERY UNCLEAR AS WE LOOK AT THE TWO, 2.0 VERSION IS VERY CLEAR EXACTLY WHAT PLACE TYPE THIS SITS IN COMMERCIAL MIXED USE.

UM, THE RECOMMENDATION'S GONNA BE LINKED TO COMMERCIAL MIXED USE.

AND THEN YOU ALL THROUGH DISCUSSION CAN DETERMINE WHICH WAY TO GO WITH THAT.

UM, WHEN THE RECOMMENDATIONS COME TO YOU ALL, UM, AND IT'S MULTIFACETED, IT CAN BECOME MORE COMPLEX AS YOU TRY TO DECIPHER THAT.

SURE.

I HAVE A QUESTION.

TAKE THEM NOW.

OH, UM, WE CAN TAKE, WE CAN TAKE THEM NOW.

YEAH.

COMMISSIONER HOUSE, RIGHT, PLEASE.

UM, WE HAD A MEETING JUST LAST NIGHT WITH DISTRICT 10 LEADERS ON FORWARD DALLAS.

AND I'LL, I WON'T TELL YOU THE, GIVE YOU THE WHOLE REPORT, BUT LET'S LOOK AT THIS SLIDE RIGHT HERE 'CAUSE IT'S, WE'RE GONNA COME BACK WITH SOME POTENTIAL CHANGES TO COLORS, REFINEMENTS, CORRECTIONS, CLARIFICATIONS, ET CETERA.

SO WHO GETS TO DECIDE THAT SHAPE IS ORANGE ON YOUR SLIDE? SO JUST TO CLARIFY, WHO GETS TO DECIDE THE SHAPE OF WHAT WILL WILL EXIST HERE? SO THROUGH KIND OF MULTIPLE, UH, DISCUSSIONS.

SO FROM THE COMMUNITY, THEY HELP D DETERMINE WHICH BOUNDARIES EXIST THROUGH THE CURRENT NATURAL FEATURES CLUB HELPS THEM PROVIDE THAT.

SO BASICALLY A CONSULTANT ALSO HELPS.

SO IT'S A MULTIPLE FACETED, UM, UH, INPUT IN TERMS OF THAT, THAT BOUNDARY.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT ALL THOSE ITEMS IN TERMS OF DETERMINING WHICH, UM, AND ALSO ZONING UP ON THE GROUND TO HELP DETERMINE WHAT THAT PLACE, WELL, I MEAN, I HAVE AN APPRECIATION FOR HOW IT GOT TO THE DRAFT FORM.

MM-HMM.

.

BUT FOR THOSE OF US THAT MAY WANT TO IMPLEMENT CHANGES TO THAT, RIGHT? AND WE'RE JUST GONNA SPEAK UP, WE'RE GONNA RAISE OUR HAND, WE'RE GONNA COME TO STAFF.

IS THAT YES.

AND THAT'S, SO AS WE CONTINUE THE DISCUSSION, THIS IS NOT SET IN STONE UNTIL COUNCIL SAYS IT'S SET IN STONE.

SO WE'RE GONNA HAVE A DISCUSSION TO THINK THROUGH THOSE BOUNDARIES, THOSE COLORS A BIT MORE IN DETAIL.

'CAUSE YOU ALL KNOW YOUR DISTRICTS MORE THAN PROBABLY THE CLUB ACTUALLY DID.

SO YOU ALL LIVE THERE.

SO I WANNA MAKE SURE THAT YOU ALL HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION.

YEAH.

ALRIGHT, NOW, GOOD QUESTION.

THANK YOU.

UH, SO AS WE LOOK AT THE, THE THE FOUR DO 2006 FOUR, 4002.0, WE'RE GONNA DELVE INTO A BIT MORE DETAIL IN TERMS OF HOW, UH, FOUR DOS 2.0.

UH, STAFF COULD USE THIS TO HELP PROVIDE CLARITY, UH, FOR THIS BODY AND ALSO MOVING FORWARD WITH, UH, CERTAIN RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THEY PROVIDE.

SO AS WE LOOK AT A PARTICULAR LOCATION, YOU KNOW, THIS IS COMMUNITY MIXED USE, UM, THIS PROVIDES A CURRENT SPREAD, UM, EXAMPLE OF WHAT THIS PARTICULAR PLACE TYPE WILL LOOK LIKE IN THE DOCUMENT.

SO IT'S GONNA BE TWO, UH, TWO PAGE SPREAD.

THIS FIRST ONE TALKS THROUGH THE CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS GIVE YOU, GIVES YOU A QUICK OVERVIEW IN TERMS OF WHAT IT IS, WHERE IT'S LOCATED, THE TYPES OF LAND USES YOU MIGHT SEE OR MIX OF LAND USES.

UH, SO AS YOU CONTINUE TO LOOK AT THE CASES THAT COME THROUGH VERSUS THE PLACE TYPES THAT IT, IT, IT, IT FALLS WITHIN, YOU CAN START TO UNDERSTAND AND GET A BETTER PICTURE OF WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE.

BUT IF YOU NEED MORE DETAIL, UM, AS TO WHAT THAT PLACE TYPE IS SAYING AND HOW TO APPLY THAT ON THE GROUND, THE NEXT SPREAD PROVIDES A BIT MORE DETAIL IN TERMS OF HOW YOU APPLY THAT APPLICATION.

UM, OF THE PLACE TYPES TO THAT PARTICULAR, UM, EITHER ZONING CASE THAT WE SEE.

SO, UH, SO FROM THROUGH, UM, UNDERSTANDING THE ADJACENCIES THAT IT MIGHT HAVE WITH OTHER USES, UM, URBAN DESIGN ELEMENTS RELATED TO EITHER MOBILITY, GREEN OPEN SPACE, UH, STREET PARKING, BUILDING FORM, THOSE ARE ALL COMPONENTS THAT HELPS TO INFORM STAFF IN THIS BODY IN TERMS OF THE PARTICULAR ZONING CASE, FALL IN LINE AND, AND MARRY THE VISION THAT THE COMMUNITY HAS, UH, WITHIN THIS PARTICULAR PLACE TYPE.

SO THIS IS WHAT, UH, THIS PARTICULAR SPREAD AND DOCUMENT IS STARTING TO UNFOLD AND LOOK LIKE.

AND WE'RE

[00:35:01]

GONNA BE USING, UH, YOUR EXPERIENCE HERE TO HELP US TAILOR THIS TO HELP STAFF AND YOUR TEAM, UM, IN REVIEWING THESE DOCUMENTS.

ADDITIONALLY TOO, AS CASES START TO COME THROUGH, UM, POST FOR DALLAS, UM, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE ARE ALSO LOOKING THROUGH SOME OF THE GOALS THAT FOR DALLAS IS TRYING TO ACHIEVE THROUGH THE, THROUGH, THROUGH WHAT WE'VE HEARD FROM THE COMMUNITY.

SO AS NEW DEVELOPMENT, REDEVELOPMENT, AND CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS COME THROUGH, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE'RE YOU ALL LOOKING AT THOSE PROJECTS, UM, THROUGH THE LENS OF THESE GOALS AND WHAT THEY'RE TRYING TO ACHIEVE, UH, THROUGH LAND USE AND THROUGH JUST CITYWIDE POLICY.

SO AS WE DELVE INTO THE DISCUSSIONS WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION TABLE IN THAT PARTICULAR SECTION, UH, WE'RE GONNA GET EVERYBODY HOPEFULLY UP TO SPEED IN TERMS OF WHAT, UH, WE'VE HEARD FROM THE COMMUNITY, OUR TECHNICAL REVIEW, UH, PANEL, AND ALSO YOUR, YOUR, YOUR COMMISSION TO HELP DEVELOP WHAT THIS SHOULD BE.

UH, THIRDLY, AS THIS, UH, CONTINUES TO MOVE THROUGH THE PROCESS, THIS IS GOING TO BE, UM, ENGAGING THE PUBLICS AND THEIR CONCERNS THROUGH EQUITABLE, UH, ENGAGEMENT.

SO WE'VE DONE A BIT MORE, I THINK WE'VE DONE MORE ENGAGEMENT THAN A LOT OF THE PLANS IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS COMBINED.

UH, SO IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE ARE CONTINUING TO HEAR FROM THE COMMUNITY, UM, IN TERMS OF WHAT THOSE LAND USES ON THE GROUND SHOULD BE, UM, IN THEIR AREA AND HOW WE'RE APPLYING THOSE MUSTS, UH, TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

UM, IF THERE ARE PARTICULAR AREAS IN THE CITY THAT ARE EXPERIENCING KIND OF ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE CONCERNS, FOR EXAMPLE, WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO SPEAK AND CONTINUE TO THINK THROUGH, UH, CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO GET, UH, THOSE COMMUNITIES OUT OF THOSE SITUATIONS.

UH, THROUGH THE CONVERSATION WE'LL BE HAVING, UH, THROUGH COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

AND THEN LASTLY, WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN IF THE PLAN CHANGES? WHAT IF WE NEED TO CHANGE SOMETHING? SAY, YOU KNOW, AMAZON HQ DECIDES TO COME HERE AND WE NEED TO THINK THROUGH A LAND USE CHANGE UPDATE IN A PARTICULAR PART OF THE CITY THAT CAN BE DONE.

SO THE PLAN CAN BE AMENDED, UM, AS NEW INFORMATION ARISES, UH, THROUGH AREA PLANS, YOU KNOW, HOW, HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO WORK WHEN YOU HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BASE, UH, YOU CAN DO SMALLER AREA PLANS THAT SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE AND BASICALLY UPDATE A CERTAIN PART OF THE CITY, UH, TO UPDATE THE FUTURE LAND USE VISION THAT'S ALSO IN, UM, CONGRUENCE WITH THE COMP PLAN.

UH, SO LAST THING WE WANNA TALK ABOUT, UM, QUESTIONS THAT WE'RE GONNA BE ENGAGING YOU ALL WITH AND IN IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

UM, SO ONE, THE COMMUNITY RESIDENTIAL PLACE TYPE.

A LOT OF DISCUSSION IN TERMS OF WHAT TYPES OF USES ARE WITHIN THAT PLACE TYPE.

WE WANNA BE ABLE TO UNPACK WHAT THE CURRENT PLAN OF WHAT THE CURRENT PLACE TYPE SAYS, WHAT ACTUALLY FOUR DALLAS 2006 SAYS.

UM, AND THINK THROUGH WHERE WE'RE MOVING FORWARD WITH THE FUTURE, UH, TO THE FLEX COMMERCIAL PLACE TYPE THAT IS THE LIGHTEST, UM, I GUESS INDUSTRIAL PLACE TYPE, UH, SLASH MIX WITH COMMERCIAL PLACE TYPE THAT WE HAVE.

THAT ONE BASICALLY SIGNALS THE TRANSITION AWAY FROM INDUSTRIAL USES.

SO THAT PLACE TYPE IS GONNA BE KEY IN, UH, FIGURING OUT WHAT IT SAYS THOSE LAND USES AND WHERE THOSE ARE LOCATED IN THE CITY.

THIRD, UM, AND ALSO, UM, SPEAKING TO THE CONVERSATION OF FLEX COMMERCIAL, THE AREA OF PY THAT IS, UH, FOR STAFF, THAT'S THE MOST DIFFICULT AREA THAT WE'VE, UH, INVESTIGATED.

AND WHEN WE CONTINUE TO, TO THINK THROUGH IDEAS WITH THIS CO COMMISSION TO THINK THROUGH HOW DO WE ADDRESS SOME OF THESE LAND USE CONCERNS IN A WAY THAT'S REALISTIC AND ALSO ADDRESSES SOME OF THE CONCERNS THE COMMUNITY SEES HERE.

SO WE, WE'LL BE PROVIDING YOU WITH SOME, SOME OPTIONS TO THINK THROUGH AND HELP US TO MAKE SURE THAT THE, THE, THE WAY FORWARD, UH, MAKES SENSE.

UH, COMMERCIAL, COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLE PARKING, UH, THINKING THROUGH WHERE AND HOW THE PLACE TYPES INCORPORATE THAT AND SPEAK TO THAT.

AND THEN LASTLY, PUBLIC UTILITY USES, UM, WITHIN THESE PLACE TYPES.

SO I WANT TO TOUCH ON THOSE MAJOR QUESTIONS.

THERE ARE PROBABLY OTHERS THAT COME THROUGH THROUGH OUR CONVERSATION, BUT THOSE ARE THE, THE FIVE THAT WE'VE TALKED THROUGH AT CLUB AND WE WANTED TO MOVE TO THIS BODY TO THINK ABOUT A BIT FURTHER.

UH, SO WHAT'S NEXT? SO THIS MONTH IS GONNA BE SIMILAR TO THIS FEBRUARY PLAN BRIEFINGS, WORKSHOPS TO DISCUSS AND TALK THROUGH AND BRING EVERYBODY UP TO SPEED WITH WHAT FOUR DALLAS IS AS WE GO INTO THE NEXT MONTH'S MARCH THROUGH MAY.

UM, HAVING PUBLIC HEARINGS AND, UH, BRIEFINGS AND WORKSHOPS THAT ENGAGES THE COMMUNITY IN TERMS OF WHAT, UH, THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN THAT PLAN DOCUMENT.

UH, AND THE HOPE IS AS WE MOVE INTO JUNE, 2024, WE HAVE SOMETHING READY FOR COUNCIL TO ALSO BEGIN THE DISCUSSION AND, AND REVIEW AS WELL.

SO FOR THAT, THAT IS ALL I HAVE.

UH, EVERYBODY CAN STAY CONNECTED WITH OUR DEPARTMENT THROUGH, UM, DIFFERENT THINGS ON THE, ON THE SCREEN.

THANK YOU.

YOU SIR.

THAT'S ALL WE GOT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONERS, COMMISSIONER HOUSER PLEASE.

[00:40:05]

COMMISSIONER HAND.

GOOD MORNING.

GOOD MORNING.

THANK YOU MR. CHAIR.

THANK YOU MR. AGU.

I THINK SIMILAR TO, UM, COMMISSIONER HOUSEWRIGHT, I'M, YOU KNOW, HEARING FROM MY COMMUNITY, UM, YOU KNOW, GETTING SOME FEEDBACK, SOME QUESTIONS THAT ARE COMING OUT.

SO I THINK ONE THING THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL, UM, PARTICULARLY ONE OF THE PRIMARY QUESTIONS I'VE GOTTEN IS HOW THE PLACE CHI TYPES HAVE EVOLVED SINCE SOME OF THAT INITIAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND HOW THOSE ARE BEING CONSIDERED.

UM, I, I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE TIME TO PROBABLY GO THROUGH ALL THE QUESTIONS WE'RE GONNA HAVE, SO WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOR US AS COMMISSIONERS FOR OUR COMMUNITY AS WE'RE TRYING TO, YOU KNOW, THINK ABOUT THIS AND, AND THINK ABOUT THE INPUT THAT WE'RE GETTING FROM STAKEHOLDER GROUPS? NO, GREAT QUESTION.

SO I THINK, UH, WHEN WE DO DO COME BACK HERE TOO AS WELL, WE'RE GONNA DELVE A BIT MORE INTO DETAIL INTO THE HISTORY OF THOSE KEY ISSUE PLACE TYPES JUST TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE GOT TO THOSE PLACE TYPES.

SO I THINK AS YOU CONTINUE TO, UH, ENGAGE YOUR COMMUNITY, WE WANNA BE ABLE TO, TO PULL OUT WHAT IS THE CORE, WHAT ARE THE CORE CONCERNS, UH, WHAT ARE THE CORE ISSUES AND WHAT ARE THE CORE DESIRES, UH, FROM A PARTICULAR PLACE TYPE.

WE WANNA MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE ADDRESSING THAT, UM, THROUGH WHAT WE CAN THROUGH THESE FOR THIS LAND USE PLAN.

UM, I THINK A LOT OF KIND OF TALKING CAN GET PEOPLE LOOKING AT DIFFERENT THINGS.

WE WANT TO BE LOOKING AT THE CORE OF WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF WHAT PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO GET FROM THESE PLACE TYPES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES, AND HOW CAN WE ACHIEVE THAT THROUGH THESE PLACE TYPES.

SO SHOULD WE HAVE THEM REACH OUT TO YOU? SHOULD WE, WE SEND YOU A LIST OF QUESTIONS, UH, ALL OF THE ABOVE, SO, OKAY.

YES.

AND I THINK IN, IN ADDITION TO THAT, WHEN, WHEN WE DO HAVE THESE PUBLIC HEARINGS, WE WANNA ALSO HEAR THEM COME AND SPEAK AT, IN THIS FORM, UM, AND SPEAK TO WHAT ISSUES THAT THEY'RE, THEY'RE HAVING OR WHICH, UM, SUGGESTIONS THAT THEY HAVE RELATED TO THOSE PLACE TYPES.

WELL, I'M LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION AND UNDERSTANDING HOW WE CAN, UM, FACILITATE THAT ADDITIONAL NO, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER HALL.

UH, THANK YOU.

GOOD PRESENTATION.

UH, EARLY ON, YOU MENTIONED BY 2045 THE POPULATION OF THE DALLAS WOULD BE 1.6 MILLION.

I YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT JUST WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS, THAT'S JUST CITY LIMITS.

YES, SIR.

OKAY.

THERE, I, IF I'M CORRECT, THERE'S, YOU KNOW, THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF ARTICLES IN THE NEWSPAPER AND STUFF LATELY, AND THERE'S BEEN SOME CHATTER THAT WE'VE ACTUALLY LOST POPULATION DUE TO HOUSING PRICES.

SO YES AND NO.

SO THERE, AS WE'RE GETTING POPULATION TO THE CITY CURRENTLY NOW THE SAME AMOUNT OF PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY LEAVING THE CITY.

UH, SO OUR POPULATION'S KIND OF STAYED ABOUT THE SAME DURING THE LAST FEW YEARS BECAUSE OF THE HOUSING CRISIS.

UM, BUT IN TERMS OF THE PROJECTIONS FROM A TRANSPORTATION ASPECT AND LOOKING REGIONALLY, UM, CITY OF DALLAS IS ACTUALLY GONNA BE GROWING NOT AS FAST AS THE REST OF THE REGION.

SO THE REST OF THE REGION IS ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, PROBABLY NEWER LAND, UM, EASIER TO DEVELOP, UH, FOR THE MOST, MOST CASES, SO THAT, THAT AREA IS GONNA BE DEVELOPING PRETTY QUICKLY OR EVEN QUICKER THAN US.

UH, BUT WE'RE STILL, BASED ON THE PROJECTIONS FROM COG, STILL ANTICIPATED TO GROW, UH, PRETTY, PRETTY RAPIDLY IN THE NEXT 25 YEARS.

WHAT, WHAT DO YOU ESTIMATE THE POPULATION RIGHT NOW? UH, I THINK, SO RIGHT NOW IT'S 1.3 MILLION, 1.3 MM-HMM, .

OKAY.

AND JUST ONE FINAL QUESTION.

UH, A LOT OF COMMENTS ABOUT BUSINESSES MOVING TO TEXAS.

UH, DO PEOPLE MOVE TO DALLAS OR DO THEY MOVE TO OUR SUBURBS? DO DO BUSINESSES BUILD, UH, CORPORATE OFFICES IN THE SUBURBS OR IN THE CITY OF DALLAS? I, I, I WOULD SAY YES TO, TO BOTH OF THOSE FOR TWO REASONS.

SO THE REGION, UH, THE NORTH TEXAS REGION, BECAUSE OUR CITIES WORK REALLY WELL TOGETHER WHERE YOU CAN BE CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN.

THE CORE, LIKE THIS IS BASICALLY THE, THE NEXUS OF, UH, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

UM, BUT YOU COULD STILL, YOU KNOW, DRIVE OR ACCESS, UH, CHEAPER LAND IN THE AREA, UM, AND ALSO DEVELOP THERE TOO.

SO WE'RE SEEING GROWTH EVERYWHERE, BUT, UH, THE CITY OF DALLAS IS BASICALLY THAT, THAT NEXUS UM, THAT KIND OF MAKES EVERYTHING ELSE AROUND US WORK.

UH, SO WE'RE BEEN KIND OF FORTUNATE TO, TO BE THAT.

BUT THINK IN THE NEXT 20, 25 YEARS, THINKING ABOUT IF OTHER CITIES ARE GROWING FASTER THAN US, WHAT DOES THAT, WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE US? WHAT DO WE BECOME? UM, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE CAN PROBABLY HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT.

WE HAVEN'T DELVED TOO MUCH INTO THAT, UM, WITH OUR, UH, PREVIOUS COMMITTEES AND COMMISSIONS, BUT THAT'D BE INTERESTING CONVERSATION TO, TO THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE CITY OF DALLAS.

IF OTHERS ARE GROWING FASTER THAN US, UH, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE STILL GROWING, WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE, UH, IN THE NEXT 20, 25 YEARS? THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

AND, AND ONE FINAL THING REAL QUICK.

UM, HOW DOES FORWARD DALLAS, UH, MELD WITH MAYBE SIMILAR PROGRAMS SURROUNDING US IN, IN, IN OUR SUBURBS? UH, ALSO A GREAT QUESTION.

SO AS WE LOOKED AT, FOR EXAMPLE, THE AREA PLAN THAT MAP HAD KIND OF SHOWED THAT THE COMPOSITE COLLAGE, WE ACTUALLY DID THE SAME THING WITH ALL CITY, UM, COMP PLANS AROUND US.

SO AS WE'RE LOOKING AT OUR FUTURE LAND USES, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE TYING THAT VISION REGIONALLY WITH WHAT'S HAPPENING AT LANCASTER, WHAT'S

[00:45:01]

HAPPENING, YOU KNOW, UP IN PLANO.

ALTHOUGH, BECAUSE WE WORK AS THIS MEGA KIND OF MACHINE, UH, WE'VE LOOKED AT HOW ALL THOSE, UH, COMMUNITIES ARE GROWING.

SO A LOT OF THE GROWTH IS GONNA BE ACTUALLY HAPPENING, UM, YOU KNOW, IN SOUTHERN DALLAS.

THAT'S ACTUALLY VERY INTERESTING.

SO A LOT OF THAT DEVELOPMENT IN TERMS OF WHAT, WHAT, WHAT SOUTHERN CITIES ARE SEEING, UH, WE ALSO HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THAT TOO AS WELL.

OUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, UH, DEPARTMENT, THEY'RE LOOKING AT THAT TOO.

SO AS WE'RE LOOKING AT CERTAIN INDUSTRIES TO GROW REGIONALLY, WE HAVE TO BE COGNIZANT OF HOW DO WE INCORPORATE, FOR EXAMPLE, INDUSTRIAL USES IN THE CITY WHEN EVERY OTHER CITY AROUND US IS FOCUSING ON THAT.

SO THAT'S SOMETHING THAT'S GONNA BE CRITICAL TO THINK ABOUT LOCATION OF THESE LAND USES AS OTHER REGIONS ARE FOCUSING ON CERTAIN LAND USES TOO AS WELL.

NO, THANK YOU COMMISSIONER.

SURE.

NOT, I, I HAVE A QUESTION.

I WANNA CIRCLE BACK TO THIS, UH, ATI YOU JUST SAID IN THAT LAST RUN, THERE WAS, UH, I THINK THE EXACT QUOTE WITH CURRENT HOUSING CRISIS.

WHEN, WHEN I READ THE FORWARD DALLAS, IF WE, IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S BECOMING GENERALLY ACCEPTED THAT THERE'S A CRISIS WHEN YOU, WHEN HOUSING'S WRITTEN ABOUT IN PRINT, THAT'S THE TERMINOLOGY THEY USE.

IT'S BEING USED HERE TODAY.

BUT WHEN I READ FOR DALLAS THAT THAT DIDN'T REALLY LEAP OUT AT ME AND I WAS WONDERING IF, IF, IF THAT IS THE CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS HAD, HAS ANYBODY LOOKED AT WHY THAT IS? AND THEN LIKE REALLY, UH, DRIVEN DOWN INTO THE DATA ON, YOU KNOW, EXACTLY HOW MANY HOUSING UNITS DO WE HAVE, HOW MANY APARTMENTS DO WE HAVE? AND THEN WHAT IS, WHAT ALSO DOESN'T REALLY COME OUT AT ME OUT OF THE PLAN IS WHAT IS A HEALTHY HOUSING EQUILIBRIUM LOOK LIKE FOR A CITY OF THIS SIZE? NOW THAT'S A FANTASTIC QUESTION.

SO A FEW COMPONENTS TO WHAT YOU JUST MENTIONED.

UM, IN TERMS OF WHAT, WHAT DOES A HEALTHY, UM, CITY IT LOOKED LIKE IN TERMS OF HOUSING? I, I, I THINK, I BELIEVE, UM, I THINK THE RATIO THAT OUR HOUSING DEPARTMENT PROVIDED US IS HAVING ANYWHERE FROM 60%, UM, HOME OWNERSHIP, I BELIEVE IN THE, IN THE CITY, UH, IT'S KIND OF THAT SWEET SPOT TO HAVE, UM, YOU KNOW, IN A PARTICULAR CITY.

BUT I THINK WE ARE, I'M NOT SURE IF YOU'RE ABOUT 40% I YOU CONFIRM THAT WITH OUR DEPARTMENT, BUT WE'RE, WE'RE BELOW THOSE BEST PRACTICE RATIOS.

UM, ALSO ON THE GROUND AS WE ARE LISTENING TO COMMUNITIES, UM, THAT ARE THROUGHOUT THE CITY, UM, FROM THOSE WHO ARE YOUNGER WHO CAN'T AFFORD TO BUY A HOUSE, UM, THAT WERE LOOKING TO BUY A HOUSE, BUT THEY CAN'T, THOSE WHO ARE AGING, WHO EITHER DON'T WANNA STAY WHAT THEY ARE 'CAUSE THAT THEIR LAND IS TOO BIG.

I'M IN A NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE MY NEIGHBORS ARE ON AVERAGE 50 YEARS, HAVE BEEN IN THE HOUSE 50 YEARS, AND THEY'RE LOOKING TO MOVE AWAY BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE CLOSER TO, UH, AMENITIES.

UM, BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE DRIVING, YOU KNOW, 30 MINUTES TO SOMEWHERE ELSE DOESN'T, IS NOT, DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR THEM AND THEY CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE.

UM, THEY CAN'T MAINTAIN THEIR LAWN, YOU KNOW, HAD A NEIGHBOR BROKE HIS KNEE.

SO THINGS LIKE THAT.

IN TERMS OF, UM, THE TYPE OF HOUSING THAT'S AVAILABLE, UM, WE HEAR THAT THERE'S AN ISSUE IN TERMS OF BEING ABLE TO GET TO THAT HOUSING THAT THEY WANT TO GET TO.

SO NOT JUST FROM THE LITERATURE THAT WE HEAR, NOT JUST FROM COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, BUT THROUGHOUT JUST, UM, OUR RESEARCH TOO.

WE HEAR THAT THERE, THERE'S A, THERE'S AN ISSUE TO GET THE TYPE OF HOUSING, AFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO GET.

SO I THINK THAT'S ONE PIECE.

UH, WITH FORD DALLAS, WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT, WE WANT THIS TO BE A VISIONARY DOCUMENT.

SO THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE, WHAT, WHAT IS THAT VISION? WHAT IS THE SHOULD OF WHAT THE, THE CITY OF DALLAS SHOULD LOOK LIKE? SO WE TOUCH ON SOME OF THOSE ISSUES.

UM, IN EARLY ON IN THE DOCUMENT, WE EVEN ACTUALLY CREATED A EXISTING CONDITIONS REPORT.

IT LOOKS AT HOUSING, IT LOOKS AT TRANSPORTATION AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE CITY RIGHT NOW.

UM, WE CAN ALSO FORWARD THAT TO THIS COMMISSION JUST TO KIND OF REVIEW, UH, WHAT THE, THE, THE TAKEAWAYS FROM THAT.

BUT WE LOOKED AT SOME OF THOSE ISSUES AND HOW DO WE ADDRESS THAT FROM THIS PARTICULAR DOCUMENT.

SO ALL OF THIS DOCUMENT PROBABLY DOESN'T DELVE INTO THE DETAIL OF THOSE CURRENT ISSUES.

WE CAN DO A BIT MORE, UM, WE CAN PROVIDE A BIT MORE CLARITY.

PROBABLY AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR DOCUMENT, THE FOCUS IS THE VISION, THE FUTURE OF WHAT THE CITY OF DALLAS SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

OKAY.

SO ON THAT, WHEN I THINK OF A PLAN, I THINK WE HAVE A REAL ACCURATE DEFINITION AND UNDERSTANDING WITH DATA OF WHERE WE ARE.

WE HAVE A REAL ACCURATE DEFINITION AND WITH ACCORDING NUMBERS WHERE WE WANT TO GO.

AND THEN THE PLAN TAKES YOU THERE AND THEN YOU HAVE ACCOUNTABILITY AND, AND I JUST DON'T SEE HOW THIS IS SHAPED THAT WAY.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, AS A PLAN COMMISSIONER, I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW LIKE, HEY, WE'RE, WE'RE SHORT THIS MANY HOUSING UNITS AND THEN QUARTERLY AT AT VERY LEAST BI-ANNUALLY, I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE CITY REPORT BACK TO US AND

[00:50:01]

SAY, HERE'S WHERE WE ARE ON THIS IS HOW MANY APARTMENTS WE'VE ADDED.

THIS IS HOW MANY SINGLE FAMILY HOU HOUSING HOUSES WE'VE ADDED.

AND THEN WE COULD SAY, OKAY, LOOKS LIKE WE'RE CHARTING ON, WE'RE TRACKING ON TIME, UH, ON SCHEDULE, OR WE'RE NOT.

YES.

SO THAT WE ACTUALLY, ACTUALLY GONNA BE PART OF THE PLAN TOO AS WELL, HAVING A MONITORING PLAN THAT LOOKS AT THOSE PARTICULAR GOALS AND HOW ARE WE TRACKING TO GET THERE.

SO THAT'S PART OF WHAT OUR CONSULTANTS HELPING US SCOPE AND DEVELOP IS.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GONNA BE TALKING ABOUT THROUGH THIS.

UH, COMMISSION IS THINKING ABOUT WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS WE WANNA TRACK AND MEASURE AND WHAT, WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE? SO THROUGH THE PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS WITH CLUB, WE'VE KIND OF BASICALLY BUILT THE, THE DOCUMENT STRUCTURE.

NOW WE'RE GONNA GO INTO THE DETAIL IN TERMS OF HOW DO WE IMPLEMENT AND MAKE THIS REAL AND ALSO KEEP STAFF AND, UH, THE CITY PERSONNEL ACCOUNTABLE WITH MOVING TOWARD THOSE, THOSE GOAL ENDS.

I'M NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD, UH, DIRECTOR? SURE.

ANDREA IS PLENTY IN URBAN DESIGN.

UM, ONE OF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE'VE HAD THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE PROCESS IS TO CLARIFY THAT THIS IS A FUTURE LAND USE PLAN AND THAT THERE ARE OTHER POLICY DOCUMENTS THAT GET MORE INTO THE SUBJECT MATTER WEEDS.

SO FOR EXAMPLE, SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT THE DATA THAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IS COMING DIRECTLY THROUGH THE HOUSING POLICY.

AND SO WE'RE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH STAFF IN THE HOUSING POLICY AND THERE ARE PIECES OF IT THAT WE CAN TAKE AND ALSO THAT WE USE TO INFORM TO SAY IN CERTAIN PLACE TYPES, WE NEED CERTAIN MIXES OF, OF USES OR RESIDENTIAL USES, OR WE SHOULD FOCUS OUR MULTI-FAMILY HERE AND WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT, YOU KNOW, SINGLE FAMILY HERE.

UM, SO SOME OF THE WAYS THAT WE TRACK OR BECAUSE IN OUR GROUP IT IS, IT'S LAND USE AND ZONING AND DESIGN, THOSE ARE SORT OF THE THREE THINGS THAT WE HAVE CHARGE OVER.

UM, NOT NECESSARILY THE SPECIFIC HOUSING PRODUCTION, BUT INDIRECTLY WE CAN GET TO THAT BECAUSE WE CAN LOOK AT OUR ANNUAL REPORTS THAT SAY, DID WE SAY AMEND THE CODE TO PROVIDE CERTAIN HOUSING TYPES OR, OR CERTAIN ZONING DISTRICTS THAT WOULD ALLOW THE DEVELOPMENT OF CERTAIN HOUSING TYPES THAT FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON'T HAVE TODAY.

UM, DID HOW MANY OF OUR, AND THIS IS IN THE ANNUAL REPORT, YOU KNOW, HOW MANY OF OUR ZONING CASES DID SUPPORT MORE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN X AREA AND WHAT WERE THOSE TYPES? UM, SO WE WILL BE COMING BACK WITH THOSE METRICS, BUT IT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE GENERAL IN THE LAND USE PLAN.

IN THE LAND USE PLAN WE'RE SAYING MORE SO WHERE DO YOU WANNA DIRECT THAT HOUSING IN GENERAL AND YES, GET INTO SOME OF THE INTENSITIES, BUT THE, THE WEEDS OF IT IS MORE GEARED TOWARD THE HOUSING POLICY DOCUMENT AND OUR HOUSING DEPARTMENT.

OKAY.

SO, BUT THE CURRENT FORD DALLAS PLAN CALLS OUT SPECIFIC NUMBERS.

I MEAN IT CALLS OUT 26,000 SINGLE FAMILY HOUSING.

I MEAN THERE'S, THERE ARE SPECIFIC RIGHT WHEN IT COMES TO LAND USE.

SO IT SEEMS LIKE THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE PART OF THIS ANYMORE.

WELL LET ME ALSO CLARIFY TOO THIS, SO THIS IS THE D WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRADITIONAL COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND THE 2006 PLAN WAS THE MORE TRADITIONAL WHERE ALL OF THE ELEMENTS, THE HOUSING ELEMENT, THE INFRASTRUCTURE, THE STREETS ELEMENT WAS ALL IN THAT ONE PLAN.

IT'S NOW BEEN PARSED OUT INTO SEPARATE PLANS.

SO THIS PLAN IS JUST LAND USE, WHEREAS THE 2006 PLAN INCORPORATED A HOUSING EL ELEMENT INCORPORATED A SUSTAINABILITY ELEMENT, INCORPORATED THE URBAN DESIGN ELEMENT, THIS ONE THAT'S ALREADY BEEN TAKEN CARE OF AND PARSED OUT THROUGH THE HOUSING POLICY SPECIFICALLY THIS ONE.

NOW THE REMAINING ELEMENT IS LAND USE.

RIGHT.

THANK YOU SIR.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMISSIONERS? OKAY, WE'LL KEEP MOVING.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

UH, COMMISSIONER, UH, ITEM NUMBER THREE WILL BE RENO.

ANYTHING WE NEED TO KNOW MR. DANIEL? YES, MR. CHAIR.

I WAS JUST GONNA SAY THAT IT WILL BE RENO TO CLARIFY THAT DCA 2 23 DASH 0 0 8 WILL NOT BE AN EXECUTIVE SESSION, BUT A BRIEFING THAT IS OPEN.
