SPECIAL PRESENTATION MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WE HAVE THREE SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS INVOLVING THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT THIS EVENING. I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO DARREN HURLEY, THE DIRECTOR WITH WHO WILL BE THE MASTER OF

CEREMONIES. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WE'RE EXCITING TO CELEBRATE A FEW POSITIVE THINGS TONIGHT WITHIN THE CITY AND SPECIFICALLY, WITHIN THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT.

UP ON THE SCREEN YOU WILL SEE THE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES IN A VERY EXCITING EVENINGS LAST YEAR.

SINCE 2013 OUR DEPARTMENT -- AS THE PROGRAM HAD DEVELOPED THE SUMMER CONCERT AND GREEN SERIES HAD BEEN ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES, INDIVIDUAL SINGLE CONCERTS.

THAT CHANGED WHEN THE NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS AT FC BANK BECAME THE FULL SPONSOR. WE DID NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET THEM HERE IN FRONT OF YOU.

THEY WERE OUR FIRST SUMMER SERIES SPONSOR.

THEY HAVE STEPPED UP ONCE AGAIN.

TONIGHT, JENNY SAUNDERS AND SEVERAL REPRESENTATIVES OF FC BANK ARE HERE. WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE JENNY AND OUR TEAM WHO PUT ON THE CONCERTS, AND SO WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE ALL OF THEM UP TO RECEIVE THE CHECK AND ALSO TO RECOGNIZE FC BANK. IF YOU AND STAFF AND WHOEVER ELSE YOU WANT TO COME UP. AND FEEL FREE TO INTRODUCE

WHOEVER YOU WOULD LIKE TO. >> I COME WITH A VERY BIG CHECK. BUT I ALSO COME WITH THE REAL CHECK. IT'S A LITTLE HARD TO FIT IT INTO THROUGH THE CHECK SCANNER. FC BANK IS SO EXCITED AND THRILLED TO BE ABLE TO HELP GIVE THIS GIFT BACK TO THE CITY.

IT'S AN AMAZING THING WE HAVE HERE WITH THE CONCERTS ON THE GREEN. AND WE'RE SUPER, SUPER EXCITED TO BE PART OF IT. YOU HAVE MAZING STAFF HERE.

WHO JUST DOES A PHENOMENAL JOB. IT'S SO FUN TO SEE WEEK AFTER WEEK A LOT OF THE SAME PEOPLE COMING BACK AND SAYING HELLO AND NEW PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, DEPENDING ON THE GENRE.

WE COULDN'T BE MORE EXCITED. I WANT TO INTRODUCE MY STAFF.

I HAVE TWO BOARD MEMBERS, JENNIFER CARNY AND SHAMASHIM.

AND I ALSO HAVE KELSEY MCFARLAND, BILL DEAL, NEAL CLARK, RYAN CONNAL RORY READ. OUR BRANCH MANAGER.

YOU WILL SEE THEM AT THE CONCERTS.

WE HAVE THREE PEOPLE THERE EVERY WEEK.

WE'RE NOT THERE TO REALLY TALK ABOUT THE BANK BUT TO ENHANCE THE EXPERIENCE WITH FRISBEES AND FUN ING THINGS.

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY.

WE LO LOVE IT. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU, JENNY. WHILE WE'RE CELEBRATING THE CONCERT SERIES, AS A BIG AND GENEROUS GIFT FROM THE FC BANK THEY SPONSOR OTHER EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES.

THIS IS NOT HE ONLY WAY THEY SUPPORT US.

SOME ARE THE 614, IN ADDITION TO HELP WITH MANY OTHER THINGS.

SOME OF WHAT HAPPENS AND WHAT THIS ENABLES US TO DO IS ROB MOTIES IS KIND OF OUR MUSIC GURU.

IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE HE HAS CONNECTIONS AND UPPED OUR GAME WHEN IT COMES TO SUMMER CONSORTSES AND MADE GREAT CONNECTIONS FOR US. MELISSA, SUZIE AND JULIE HANDLE THE EVENT AND MAKE YOU FEEL CARED FOR WITH THE STAFF.

[00:05:03]

WE'RE PROUD OF THE CONCERTS AND CERTAINLY FC BANK HAS BECOME A BIG PART OF THAT. THANK YOU.

GO AHEAD AND GIVE IT TO MELISSA.

>> THANK OU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ON BEHALF OF THE CITY COUNCIL AND THE CITY, WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH.

WE O APPRECIATE FC BANK AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

AND YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH. WE'RE EXCITED YOU ARE AS EXCITED AS WE ARE TOO. WE APPRECIATE IT.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH, OUR SECOND FUN THING OF THE EVENING IS WE, CITY STAFF ARE EXCITED TO LEARN TOWARDS THE END OF LAST YEAR, SHAWN DAUGHERTY OUR PARKS SUPERVISOR WAS AWARDED.

THE GREAT BLUE HERON AWARD. ALONG WITH SHAWN IS JENNIFER FISH FROM THE FRANKLIN SOIL AND UTWATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT.

AND DEED RAW DONALDSON AND LAURA FAY, WITH FLOW, AND THEY ARE

GOING TO PRESENT THE AWARD. >> JENNIFER FISH, DIRECTOR WITH CONSERVATION WATER DISTRICT. WE'RE PLEASED TO BE RECOGNIZING SHAWN DAUGHERTY, AS YOU HEARD, WORTHINGTON PARK SUPERVISOR WITH THE GREAT BLUE HERREN AWARD. WE PROMOTE RESPONSIBLE AND USE DECISIONS FOR THE BENEFIT OF SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION, BY PROVIDING TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES.

THE GREAT BLUE HERREN AWARD RECOGNIZES OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS AND NATURAL RESOURCES AND STREET PROTECTION WITHIN FRANKLIN COUNTY. FRANKLIN SOIL AND WATER RECOGNIZES THE MPORTANCE OF PARTNER PARTNERSHIPS TO THE STRATEGIC OF THE MISSION AND PLEASED TO RECOGNIZE SHAWN WITH THIS AWARD. SHAWN HAS BEEN A STRONG SUPPORTING AND IMPLEMENTER OF IMPROVEMENTS AT WORTHINGTON PARKS, PARTNERING WITH FRIEND OF THE LOWER OLENTANGY WATERSHED.

HE LEADS THE REMOVAL OF INVASIVE BUSH AND HONEY SUCKLE IN THE FALL OF 2017. HE ALSO FACILITATED THE EARTH PLAY PLANTING EVENTS AT WHIT THEY PLAYGROUND AND A LARGE SESSION ALONG THE OLENTANGY TRAIL IN 2018.

FOR FUTURE PLANS, HE WILL BE PLANNING A HONEY SUCKLE REMOVAL AT PARK BOULEVARD PARK TO BE FOLLOWED UP BY RESTORATION PLANTING. THE REMOVAL OF HONEY SUCKLE IS IMPORTANT. IT'S INVASIVE.

IF T TAKES OVER IT DOESN'T ALLOW FOR OTHER SPECIES TO TAKE HOLD. IF YOU HEAR ABOUT DECLINING BEE AND IRD POPULATIONS, THEY DON'T HAVE THE NATURAL RESOURCES TO SURVIVE AND INVASIVE SPECIES CONTRIBUTE TO THIS.

IT'S IMPORTANT WE CAN MANAGE THEM.

WITH THAT, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE DEDRAW DONALDSON.

>> I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU, PARTICULARLY TO SHAWN, AT THE FOREFRONT OF THIS SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FLOW AND THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF WORTHINGTON PARKS AND RECREATION. IT'S BEEN A GREAT RELATIONSHIP AND I THINK WE HAD SIX PROJECTS LAST YEAR.

EIGHT OR SO THIS YEAR. HE'S ALWAYS COMING UP WITH OTHER IDEAS ON THINGS TO DO. AND IT'S JUST BEEN A WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP. WE DO, BY THE WAY, HAVE SEVERAL COMING UP APRIL 13 AT SNAUFFER PARK.

PARTNERING WITH MUTELL. AND MANY OTHER PROJECTS IF YOU GO TO OLENTANGY WATERSHED DOT ORG, YOU CAN CHECK THEM EPIOUT.

WE'RE DOING A GREEN SPACE PLANNING SURVEY.

YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY, YOU CAN G GIVE FEEDBACK AS TO HOW YOU SEE PARKS IN THE WORTHINGTON AREA AND OLENTANGY WATERSHED AND WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE IN REGARDS TO PARKS AND REC.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU, AND PARTICULARLY, SHAWN. AND REKINDLING THIS

RELATIONSHIP. >> AND I'LL SAY IT'S AN HONOR WORKING ITH LAURA, DEED RAW AND JENNIFER.

[00:10:02]

WE HAVE PLENTY OF PROJECTS LINED UP FOR THIS YEAR.

GROUPS LIKE FLOW AND FRANKLIN COUNTY SOIL AND WATER ENABLES US TO DO MORE. AND NOT ONLY THAT BENEFIT THE RESIDENTS OF WORTHINGTON BUT A BIG ONE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

SO THANKS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COMING OUT AND PRESENTS THIS AWARD. AND SHAWN, WE'RE ALL VERY PROUD OF YOU. AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HARD WORK YOU HAVE BEEN DOING AND CONTINUE TO DO TO HELP THE OTHER

>> M. GREESON: WE HAVE ONE MORE THING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IT'S AN AWARD-WINNING NIGHT, FOLKS.

>> M. GREESON: WE HAVE MENTIONED THIS BEFORE.

BUT NOW WE HAVE THE AWARDS IN HANDS, WE'RE GOING TO RECOGNIZE THE STAFF. I'M GOING TO ASK MELISSA, JULIE AND SUZIE. THE OHIO PARKS AND RECREATION ASSOCIATION DURING THEIR ANNUAL CONFERENCE IT AS A PART OF THEIR AWARDS OF EXCELLENCE YOU CAN SUBMIT AWARDS FOR THE PREVIOUS YEAR. AND THEY ARE JUDGED.

THERE WAS 150 PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS SUBMITTED THIS PAST CYCLE AND 14 RECEIVED A FIRST-PLACE AWARD IN THE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES. AND 14 IN SIX CATEGORIES.

WE WERE FORTUNATE TO COME AWAY WITH A FIRST AND SECOND PLACE.

BOTH WERE SPECIAL EVENTS HERE IN THE COMMUNITY.

THE FIRST-PLACE WINNER WAS KEY TO THE CITY.

WE HAVE A COUPLE OF QUICK SLIDES TO GIVE YOU A TASTE OF THAT.

I HAVE TO TURN THIS ON. SO THE KEY TO THE CITY PROGRAM WAS BASICALLY A PROGRAM WHERE KEYS WERE HIDDEN THROUGH THE PARKS, TO MOTIVATE FOLKS TO GET OUT AND GO TO PARKS THAT AREN'T IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD OR AREN'T WHERE YOUR SPORTS TEAM PLAY.

IT INCLUDED A LOT OF BUSINESSES, YOU WILL SEE FC BANK AND OTHERS THAT HELPED WITH WHAT IT TOOK TO PUT THE EVENT ON AND TO GET THE KEYS AND THE PRICES. THE KEYS WERE HIDDEN AROUND THE CITY. HOW MANY? 1,1,200 KEYS OUT AND ABOUT IN THE PARKS.

WE HAD DIFFERENT PROMOTIONS THROUGH THE BUSINESSES AND THROUGHOUT THE EVENT. WE HAD SHORT VIDEO CLIP TO GIVE YOU A TASTE OF WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE AT THE END.

>> 1250 KEYS HIDDEN THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON IN 16 LOCAL PARKS, MANY DIFFERENT BUSINESSES AND WITHIN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES, MR. HOLDEN SIZEMORE HOLDS THE WINNING KEY AND HAS UNLOCKED THE KEY TO THE CITY.

CONGRATULATIONS. WHERE DID YOU FIND YOUR KEY?

>> MY DAD FOUND IT AT THE PARK? >> WHICH PARK? DO YOU REMEMBER? KINGRY PARK WAS THE WINNING PARK. DID YOU RECOGNIZE ANY OF THESE PLACES OR PRIZES? HE'S GOING TO GET GIFT CARDS FROM LOCAL BUSINESSES, RESTAURANTS, FITNESS FACILITIES, A YEAR MEMBERSHIP TO THE WORTHINGTON COMMUNITY CENTER, $100 FROM PET PEOPLE, LILY LINES, ZACK ZIG, ALADDINS, OLD BAG AND NAILS, SO MANY TO EVEN LIST OUT, DEWEY'S, PAT AND GRACIE'S. SO MANY PRICES THAT YOU WON.

AND WITHIN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES OF STARTING.

>> M. GREESON: SO THE FUNNY THING WAS YOU KNOW, THEY HAD ALL THE PEOPLE COME OUT TO THIS END OF THE EVENT TO OPEN UP.

THEY GOT IN LINE WITH THEIR KEYS AND THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES, A KID OPENED IT RIGHT AWAY. IT WAS A LITTLE ANTICLIMATIC.

IT BROUGHT A LOT OF ATTENTION TO THE CITY AND SPONSORS.

THE SECOND-PLACE AWARD WAS THE BORDER BATTLE WHERE WE TOOK ON A

[00:15:05]

COMMUNITY CENTER IN MICHIGAN. BASED ON WHO HAD THE MOST PARTICIPANTS COMING OUT. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE TEAM, AND

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: CONGRA.

THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: AT THIS POINT WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A SHORT BREAK. I THINK SOME OF THE PEOPLE HERE FOR THE AWARD-WINNING NIGHT MIGHT NOT WANT TO STAY FOR THE REST OF THE MEETING. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO, YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO STAY. WE WON'T STOP YOU.

HEAR MY MICROPHONE? THEY ARE WONDERING IF I HAD IT ON. OKAY, ALL RIGHT.

[6.A. Meeting Minutes - March 4, 2019 Recommendation: Introduce and Approve as Presented]

THE MINUTES HAVE BEEN APPROVED. MOVING ONTO ORDINANCE ORDINANCE

[7.A. Ordinance No. 06-2019 Rezoning - Worthington Gateway - 7007 North High Street To Amend the Official Zoning Map of the City of Worthington, Ohio, to Change Zoning of Certain Land from C-4, Highway and Automotive Services to PUD, Planned Use District (7007 North High Street) Executive Summary: This Ordinance rezones 7007 North High Street (PID #100-001218) from the C-4 District, Highway and Automotive Services to a PUD, Planned Use District for a mixed use development. Recommendation: Approve as Presented Legislative History: Introduced on March 4, 2019]

NO. 06-2019 REZONING - WORTHINGTON GATEWAY - 7007 NORT HIGH STREET TO AMEND THE OFFICIAL ZONING MAP OF THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON, OHIO, TO CHANGE ZONING OF CERTAIN LAND FROM C-4 HIGHWAY AND AUTOMOTIVE SERVICES TO PUD, PLANNED USE DISTRICT

(7007 NORTH HIGH STREET). >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THIS AGENDA ITEM AS WELL AS A COUPLE THAT FOLLOW ARE RELATED TO THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THE FORMER HOLIDAY INN PROPERTY CALLED THE WORTHINGTON GATEWAY PROJECT, WHICH YOU ARE VERY FAMILIAR WITH BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING IT FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

I'M GOING TO TURN THIS ITEM OVER TO MR. BROWN, AS IT RELATES TO THE REZONING OF THAT PROPERTY. AND HE'LL TOUCH ON THAT ITEM AS WELL AS THE SUBSEQUENT ITEM, WHICH IS A SUBDIVISION.

AND THEN MR. MCCORKLE WILL LEAD THE THIRD ITEM, WHICH IS

THE TIF. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AS YOU CAN SEE THE REQUEST IS TO REZONE FROM THE C4, THE HIGHWAY AND AUTOMOTIVE TO PLANNED DISTRICT WHERE A DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND TEXT THAT GO TOGETHER.

AND AS MR. GREESON MENTIONED THEY ARE REQUESTING A SUBDIVISION INTO THREE SEPARATE PARCELS.

KIND OF A FLASH BACK, THREE YEARS AGO, FEBRUARY 6 OF 2016 WHEN THE APPLICANT HAD THEIR FIRST MEETING.

THEIR TOWN HALL AT THE OLD HOL HOLIDAY INN SITE.

YOU KNOW HOW TO READ. IT'S BEEN THROUGH OUR HISTORY REVIEW BOARD SEVERAL TIMES, CONDITIONAL USES AND BOARD AND ZONING APPEALS FOR VARIANCES AND ONTO DECEMBER 18, THE CTUAL DEMOLITION OF THE HOLIDAY INN SITE.

EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE REVIEW BOARD AND PLANNING COMMISSION AND BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS WAS PACKAGED TOGETHER IN A TEXT AND DEVELOPMENT PLAN TO COME AS IT GOES FORWARD. WITH A PUD ANY MODIFICATION OR CHANGED CAN ALSO GO BACK ONTO CITY COUNCIL.

QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE SITE. WHAT YOU ORIGINALLY SAW WAS IVE SEPARATE BUILDINGS, THREE ALONG WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, WO AT HIGH STREET AND CAREN. TWO HOTELS AND A PARKING DECK.

IT EVOLVE TO TWO HOTELS, NO OFFICE SPACE, WHICH WAS A BIG THING WE WERE PUSHING FOR. AGAIN, THE PARKING DECK WAS ON THE WESTERN EDGE. THEN IT EVOLVED TO AGAIN, TWO HOTELS STILL. TWO BUILDING ALONG WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND THE TWO ON HIGH. PARKING DECK DONE AWAY WITH AND SURFACE LOTS. WHICH IS WHAT EVENTUALLY WAS APPROVED BY THE ARCHITECTURE REVIEW BOARD AND BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS IS WHAT YOU SEE TODAY. FOUR BUILDINGS ALONG WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, A BUILDING ENVELOPE ALONG HIGH STREET AND CAREN, IT HAS TO COME BACK FOR APPROVAL IN THE FUTURE.

AND THEN A ONE HOTEL VERSUS THE TWO HOTELS THAT WAS FOUR-STORY AND 111 ROOMS. WHAT YOU HAVE IS THE PINK THE

[00:20:02]

OLD LAYOUT OF THE OLD HOLIDAY INN WITH THE NEW BUILDING ON THE SITE. LANDSCAPING ON THE SITE IS IMPROVED. AS PART OF THIS ALSO WE'RE GETTING RIGHT-OF-WAY DEDICATION ALONG WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND HIGH STREET FOR STREETSCAPE PREDOMINANTS.

WE WORKED WITH THE OWNER OF THE MALL AND SURE MONT TO THE WEST.

TO REALIGN THE INTERSECTION SO YOU CAN TRULY HAVE AN IMPROVEMENT THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR LEFT TURN LANE AND THOSE COMING FROM HIGH STREET TOWARDS DESETS CELEBRATION TO ALLOW FOR BETTER PEDESTRIAN -- AND THE HOLIDAY INN SITE, YOU SAW THE GAME OF FROGGER WITH PEOPLE RUNNING ACROSS THE STREET TRYING TO GO TO THE MALL SITE. WE THINK THIS IS AN IMPROVEMENT TO DO A REALIGNMENTT. YOU WILL SEE NEW STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS ALONG THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND HIGH STREET FRONTAGE ALSO. AGAIN, WITH THIS WE'RE GOING FROM 1.3 ACRES OF OPEN SPACE TO ACTUALLY 1.6 ACRES OF OPEN SPACE WITH THE PLANTING BEDS AND LAWN THAT WILL BE INSTALLED.

ART PART OF THIS PROJECT WE'RE LOOKING AT MODERN STORMWATER TECHNOLOGY. THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I KNOW ONE OF THE RESIDENTS WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON AT THE END OF THIS.

THE CURRENT SITE DEVELOPED IN THE EARLY '70S, THE EPA REQUIREMENTS WERE IMITED. PIPE IT, GET IT TO THE RIVER AND GET IT AWAY FROM THE SITE. WE HAVE BIOSWELLS AND STORAGE TANKS SO IT DOES NOT O OVERFLOW, AND RELEASES TO THE RIVER TO THE WEST. AS PART OF THIS YOU CAN SEE THE HATCHED AREA ON THE SCREEN. IN FRONT OF HOTEL IN THIS AREA IS ALSO THE AREA OF PAVER. A BLOW UP AREA, THE PREFERIOUS BRICK PAVERS. THE UNDERGROUND STORAGE AREA, SIMILAR TO THE FRESH TIME IN THE REAR OF THE PARKING LOT WITH THE PREFERIOUS PAVERS TO HAVE UNDERGROUND STORAGE AND GRADUALLY RELEASED TO THE WEST.

THIS IS WHAT WAS APPROVED BY THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BOARD.

IT'S ALONG WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD.

THAT'S A MIX OF OFFICE, RETAIL ON THAT SITE AND RESTAURANTS.

AGAIN, THE FOUR-STORY HAMPTON INN.

AS PART OF A DEVELOPMENT PLAN WITH PUD WE LOOK AT USES AND THE DEVELOPMENT TEXT. WE KNEW WE WANTED A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF OFFICE SPACE. SO WHAT WAS PERMITTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT TEXT WE HAVE A LIST OF USES WITH MINIMUM SQUARE FOOTAGES, A MINIMUM OF 18,000 AND THERE WILL BE OTHER MEASURES WITH THE DEVELOPMENT TEXT, AGREEMENT THAT WILL BE PRESENTED TOO. THIS IS A LUST OF USES, RESTAURANTS, HOTELS, SALE OF RETAIL, THE PREVIOUS ZONING CATEGORY ALLOWED FOR LIMITS RETAIL, NOT FULL-OUT RETAIL.

THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS ALSO TO MATCH WITH THE CHANGE THE ZONING CATEGORY FROM C-4. IT GOES TO PERSONAL SERVICES, DRIVE-INS FOR BANKS. WE DID NOT PERMIT DRIVE-THRUS FOR RESTAURANTS OR FAST FOOD. ARTS, CRAFTS, ENTERTAINMENT, RECREATIONAL FACILITIES. WHAT WAS APPROVED BY THE BOARD, IT WENT THROUGH AND LISTED OUT THE SQUARE FOOTAGES IN THE ALLOWABLE USES. WHAT WE GET AT THE END OF THE DAY IS MINIMUM OF 18,000 SQUARE FEET OF LEASED OFFICE.

NO PARKING DECK. AND FUTURE BUILDING AT CAREN AND HIGH THAT HAS TO COME BACK IN THE FUTURE.

WE'RE ALSO DOING STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS AT CAREN AND HIGH STREET AS PART OF THIS REDEVELOPMENT.

WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THE SPAN WIRES WILL GO AWAY.

NEW MAST ARMS, BRICK AT THE INTERSECTIONS, KNEE WALLS

[00:25:01]

SIMILAR TO WHAT WE HAVE AT 61 AND HIGH STREET BY THE VILLAGE GREEN AND LANDSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS TO HELP SOFTEN IT.

THE BRICK STREETSCAPE. AND AGAIN, HERE'S THE IMPROVEMENTS YOU WILL SEE OVER AT THE WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD PORTION. THE SMALL ENTRANCE WILL SHIFT TO THE EAST. THE OTHER ENTRANCE WILL SHIFT TO THE WEST TO ALLOW FOR ALIGNMENT FOR PEDESTRIANS.

AGAIN, AS PART OF THIS WE'RE DOING RIGHT-OF-WAY DEDICATION ALONG WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD. AND ALONG HIGH STREET TO SEE A LITTLE OVER A HALF ACRE OF LAND ALONG WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD DEDICATED FOR PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY.

AND YOU WILL SEE A FIVE-FOOT SIDEWALK, TREE LINE, ADDITIONAL STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS WITH LIGHTING.

ALONG HIGH STREET YOU WILL SEE STRAIGHT SCAPE IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW SIDEWALK AND LIGHTING. AND ALSO GETS THE WATER LINE THAT IS THERE INTO THE PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY VERSUS EASEMENT.

THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING TO SPLIT OFF INTO THREE SECTIONS, THE FOUR BUILDING ALONG WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD WOULD BE LOT NUMBER ONE. TWO IS THE SITE WITH THE PROPOSED HOTEL. AND THEN LOT HREE IS THAT REA THAT'S A FUTURE BUILDING PAD THAT WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK IN THE FUTURE. AND AGAIN, WITH ALL OF THIS WE HAVE A ACROSS PARKING AGREEMENT.

SO NO MATTER WHO OWNS WHAT IF IT'S SOLD TOMORROW AND THEN THE NEXT DAY, THAT CROSS PARKING, ACCESS AGREEMENT GOES FORWARD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THAT PERMITS PEOPLE TO PARK IN ANY

ONE OF THE LOTS? >> AS PART OF THIS IT MATCHES UP WITH THE PLAN ADOPTED BY CITY COUNCIL IN 2011 FOR THE WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD PLAN. MATCHING UP WITH T THE STANDARDS THAT AS YOU WANT ADOPTED IN 2016 FOR THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD CORRIDOR. IT WEND TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION ON FEBRUARY 14. IT WAS RECOMMENDED FOR APPROVAL. AND AGAIN, I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. BUT I KNOW THE NEIGHBORS TO THE SOUTH WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK.

COUNCILMEMBERS, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> D. ROBINSON: THE PARKING AND CROSS ACCESS TERMS TRANSFER WITH OWNERSHIP WITH THE PARCELS ARE SOLD OFF?

>> CORRECT. WE HAVE THE AGREEMENT AND IT'S ALSO IN THE DEVELOPMENT TEXT ALSO.

AND ON THE PLAT. >> D. ROBINSON: WOULD THAT ALSO APPLY TO OTHER TERMS OR STRUCTURES IN A PUD IN TERMS OF

USAGE OF THE PROPERTY? >> CORRECT.

THE USES YOU WERE APPROVING, IT GOES FORWARD UNTIL THERE WAS AN AMENDMENT THAT WOULD COME BACK TO YOU FOR APPROVAL.

>> D. ROBINSON: THE HIGH STREET PARCEL, WHAT TERMS OR TRUCTURES OR QUALIFICATIONS WENT INTO THE PARCEL BEING SOLD SINCE THERE IS NO PLAN? ARE THERE SETBACK OR MAXIMUM

SQUARE FOOTAGE, ET CETERA? >> ONE THING BUILT INTO THE PUD TEXT AND PLAN, IT WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK FOR APPROVAL.

WHAT WOULD BE SHOWN ON HERE IS THE DEVELOPMENT PAD, THE BUILDING WAS PROPOSED TO BE A ONE STORY.

UP TO THIS SQUARE FOOTAGE BUT COME AS TWO SEPARATE BUILDINGS EQUAL TO 11,000 SQUARE FEET. I THINK IT'S PROPOSED, THE SOUTHERN PROPERTY LINE TO CAREN WAS 23 FEET.

AND THEN AFTER YOU TAKE AWAY THE RIGHT-OF-WAY DEDICATED ALONG HIGH STREET IT COULD BE 10 FEET FROM THAT NEW PROPERTY LINE.

SO YOU HAVE THOSE PARAMETERS BUILT IN TO GIVE YOU THE BUILDING ENVELOPE YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO WORK WITH, WHETHER IT BE ONE OR TWO BUILDINGS. WE WOULD LOOK AT WHATEVER IS PROPOSED TO MAKE SURE THE PARKING WORKED AND THE CROSS

ACCESS WAS NOT INTERRUPTED. >> D. ROBINSON: AS THE MAXIMUM

FOOTPRINT ILLUSTRATED? >> I THINK IT WOULD BE.

I'M NOT SAYING IT COULDN'T GO TO A SECOND STORY.

WE WOULD HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW WOULD IT IMPACT THE PARKING AND

CROSS PARKING. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES, MS. KOWALCZYK.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I KNOW THERE WAS A TRAFFIC STUDY DONE.

I HAVE HEARD CONCERNS ABOUT TRAFFIC AT CAREN AND HIGH.

ARE THERE THINGS BEING DONE TO ADDRESS IT? I TRIED TO INTERPRET THE TRAFFIC STUDY.

>> IN TALKING WITH YOUR TRAFFIC CONSULTANT, THERE WILL BE TIMING

[00:30:01]

IMPROVEMENTS WITH THE OTHER SIGNALS TO HELP.

I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS WITH THE IMPROVEMENTS WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AT CAREN AND HIGH WITH THE STREETSCAPE, I THINK WILL ALSO ELP WITH THE PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLES TO GET ACROSS. HOPEFULLY, I KNOW AT LEAST FOLLOWING THE FACEBOOK CHATTER, I THINK SOME PEOPLE ARE IMPATIENT AT THAT INTERSECTION AND WANT TO RUN THROUGH IT.

BUT I THINK IT'S SIGNALIZED. WITH THE BUILDING LOCATION, THEY ARE WAITING FOR THE SIGNAL, THERE SHOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE WITH ANYONE GETTING HIT. SOMETIMESYOU HAVE TO WAIT A FEW SECONDS. BUT INTRAFFIC CONSULTANT DID NOT SEE ISSUES OR CONCERNS WITH THIS LAYOUT WITH THE IMPROVEMENTS ON WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND/OR THE ONES AT HIGH AND CAREN.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: IS THAT NOT ALSO A CONSIDERATION GIVEN FOR THE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD ACCESS?

>> CORRECT. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THAT WOULD BECOME THE PRIMARY ACCESS FOR THIS PROPERTY.

>> CORRECT. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THTHAT WOULD E ENHANCED BY THE IMPROVEMENTS MADE TO THAT

ENTRANCE? >> YES, SIR.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THANK YOU. >> ONE OF THE THINGS DISCUSSED WAS THE FOUR BUILDINGS YOU SEE ALONG THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD WOULD BE ADDRESSED SO THE MAJORITY OF THE TRAFFIC AND IMPROVEMENTS ON WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND THE MALL ENTRANCE WOULD BE YOUR MAIN ENTRANCE AND CAREN AND HIGH ARE THE SECOND. ANYTHING ELSE? IN CITY COUNCIL WE ASK PEOPLE TO DO A YELLOW SHEET.

YOU CAN DO IT AFTER. JUST SO WE HAVE A RECORD OF IT.

ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO SPEAK, WE HAVE YELLOW SPEAKER SLIPS IN THE BACK. GIVE THEM TO MS. THRESS.

ONE AND TWO, WE IMIT PEOPLE TO FIVE MINUTES EACH.

THAT'S OUR COUNCIL RULES. OTHER THAN THAT, I KNOW SOME

WERE INTERESTED. >> YOU WANT TO DO THE VIDEO

FIRST? >> BEFORE WE GO HERE.

I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE INITIAL PROPOSAL.

FIRST OF ALL, WHEN WE STARTED THIS WHOLE HING WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, I'M STEVE ROZONTOUCH, 140 CAREN AVENUE. IF YOU GO DOWN CAREN AVENUE, IT'S THE BUILDING ON THE RIGHT THERE.

BUILDING NUMBER SIX, THE WHOLE THING THAT WHEN THEY TALKED ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD CORRIDOR WAS TO STOP THE TUNNELING EFFECT. MAKE SURE THE BUILDINGS ARE PUSHED BACK. HERE ON THIS ONE CORNER, THE WORST INTERSECTION IN ALL OF WORTHINGTON WE HAVE TOTALLY TAKEN THE OPPOSITE APPROACH AND PUT THE BUILDING AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE STREET SO YOU CAN'T SEE AROUND THE CORNERS AND EVEN WITH THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS, IF THERE IS A PERSON IN THE LANE THE OTHER WAY AND YOU ARE COMING UP, HE'S GOT THE LIGHT TIMED, THE LIGHT TURNS GREEN, HE MOVES.

YOU WEREN'T THERE IN TIME TO SET THERE LIGHT.

WHY DOESN'T IT GO GREEN BOTH WAYS? EVEN THEN YOU CAN STILL MAKE YOUR TURN.

INSTEAD YOU HAVE TO SIT THR THROUGH THERE TWICE.

BUILDING SIX IS THE IDEA OF PUTTING BUILDING SIX AND TURNING THAT INTO A TUNNEL GOING INTO THE CORRIDOR, I CAN'T TELL WHAT A BAD IDEA THAT IS. THE NEXT THING IS WHEN YOU COME OFF OF WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, GREAT I'D SAYING THAT S THE MAIN EXIT. PEOPLE ARE GOING TO COME IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL AND GO INTO THE PARKING.

THE BOTTOM LINE WHEN IT COMES TIME TO LEAVE, IF ANYBODY COMES OUT ON CAREN AVENUE THEY ARE WAITING THROUGH THREE LIGHTS TO GET ON WILSON BRIDGE ROAD. THEY COME OUT ON CAREN EVERY AND BEE BOP THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC THAT INCREASED BECAUSE OF THE CONSTRUCTION AT WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND HIGH STREET AND WHAT COMES DOWN THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS AMAZING.

>> ALSO, WE'RE NOT TAKING INTO ACCOUNT WHAT HAPPENS AT THE OLD BLUE CROSS AND BLUE SHIELD AND UNITED METHODIST, WHATEVER THAT BRINGS WILL INCREASE THAT INTERSECTION.

GO ON, STEVE. >> I CAN'T TELL YOU THE LAST FIVE TIMES I HAVE BEEN THERE, YOU KNOW, I PAY ATTENTION TO HE LIGHTS WHEN THEY TURN GREEN. HAD I BEEN QUICKER AND NOT HIT MY BREAKS I WOULD HAVE BEEN T-BONED WITH TRAFFIC OUT OF

[00:35:01]

WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AT HIGH STREET.

BLATANTLY GOING THROUGH THAT LIGHT ON HAT INTERSECTION.

OKAY. THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME GETTING OFF MY SOAP BOX. BUILDING SIX IS A BAD IDEA ALL THE WAY AROUND. THE FACT THEY ARE DIVIDING IT UP -- I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT YOU HAD ENOUGH FORES FORESIGHT, THIS WILL GO FORWARD WITH THE FOLLOWING AGREEMENT.

OTHERWISE YOU SELL THE THIRD LOT AND WHAT GOES UP ON THE LIGHT.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE PARKING SPACES FOR THE HOTEL AND THE RESTAURANTS AND EVERYTHING ELSE THEY ARE PLANNING ON PUTTING IN THERE AREN'T CLOSE TO BEING ENOUGH.

THAT WAS PART OF THE REASON THEY KEPT IT AS A PARKING AREA.

>> GUYS, HIS IS MY HOUSE. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT RAINS. THIS IS --

>> YOU CAN SEE -- >> THE NORTH SIDE OF OUR DRIVEWAY. AND THE FENCE IS -- BELONGS TO THE HOTEL. WE LIVE -- THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS

TO MY DRIVEWAY WHEN IT RAINS. >> LOOKING THROUGH BY WIND SCREEN AND IT'S NOT RAINING. THIS IS THE RUN OFF.

>> YOU CAN SEE THE DESTRUCTION TO THE DRIVEWAY.

>> FOUR YEARS AGO -- 18 YEARS NOW I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THE HOUSE I BEEN DEALING WITH THE CITY AND HOTEL TO SOLVE THEIR WATER PROBLEM. INITIALLY THEY AD PENINSULAS UP THE PARKING LOT. THE WATER FLOWED OFF THE HOTEL, DOWN OFF THE PARKING LOT, IT WOULD HIT THE INDIVIDUAL PENINSULA AND COME DOWN THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF MY DRIVEWAY.

ONE STORM, OVER A MILLION GALLONS OF WATER FROM ONE STORM. THAT IS THE PROPERTY, THE DAY THEY BROKE MY BACK. THAT WAS A SITUATION THEY DID RERAB WORK. THEY PUT TWO CONEX BOXES UP AND THEY DID IT. OKAY.

THEY LATER ON WORKING WITH THE CITY, I GOT THEM TO PUT UP A DRAINAGE, FIVE INCH INSTEAD OF THREE INCH PIPES.

THEY DIDN'T WORK. WE GOT THEM TO PUT CUT THROUGHS WHICH ALLOWED THE WATER TO FLOW TO THE SOUTH END OF THE PARKING LOT. THEY FLOW WOULD FLOW TO THE END OF THE PROPERTY, OFF OF THEIR PROPERTY INTO THE STREET.

>> THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK.

OUR PATIO RETAINING WALL HAS NOW COLLAPSED.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, I'M NOT AN ENGINEER, BUT I KNOW THAT THE DESTRUCTION TO THE DRIVEWAY HAS MADE THE BOTTOM BASE OF OUR RETAINING WALL, AGAIN, UNSUBSTANTIATED.

AND WE TALKED WITH THEM ABOUT THIS FOR FOUR OR FIVE YEARS AND GOTTEN NOTHING. I'M NOW SITTING WITH --

>> IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS PICTURE, SEE THE LINE IN THE CONCRETE? THEY CAME AFTERWARDS, SEE WHERE

THE DRAIN IS ON THE LEFT -- >> IT'S FULL OF LEAVES.

>> IT USED TO FLOW OFF THEIR PROPERTY INTO THE STREET.

THEY FOUR YEARS AGO, PUT THE BARRICADE UP TO INCREASE THE FLOW. I HAVE PICTURES OF MY WITH WATER UP ABOVE MY KNEES IN THAT HOLE. I CALL THEM, SAYING IT'S FLOWING ON THE PROPERTY, COME DOWN AND TAKE CARE OF THIS.

WHEN I MOVED INTO THE HOUSE, I PUT IN NEW DRAINAGE AND DUG UP THE CENTER OF MY YARD. I CAN HANDLE ANY WATER ON MY PROPERTY. WHEN YOU TURN AROUND AND COUPLE THE AMOUNT OF RAIN, AND THAT IS A SMALL RAIN STORM.

I'M TALKING ABOUT I PUT IN DRAINAGE IN MY BASEMENT, PUT IN DRY LOCK, PLASTIC AND DUAL TILES, ALL NTO THE PIPING SYSTEM TO GET IT OUT TO THE STREET.

I GOT IT SO MY BASEMENT WAS DRY.

IF THEY GO BACK TO THIS, MY BASEMENT IS WET.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT HAVING TO COME BACK AND GOING AFTER THEM FOR THAT STUFF, YOU KNOW. YOU TALK TO ANYBODY.

>> THE EROSION THAT'S HAPPENED IS IMMENSE.

IT CAN'T BE IGNORED ANY LONGER. WHAT CONCERNS ME EVEN MORE NOW THAT I HAVE A TOTALLY SCREWED UP HOUSE, IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY START DIGGING INTO THE GROUND TO PUT IN A BIG CISTERN AND RETENTION AREA? HOW IS THAT GOING TO IMPACT US

[00:40:05]

AGAIN? WE'VE BEEN PATIENT.

WE HAVE BEEN TO ALMOST EVERY ONE OF THOSE MEETINGS THAT WERE LISTED. OM DOESN'T RETURN PHONE CALLS.

WE WERE PROMISED THE DRIVEWAY SHOULD HAVE BEEN BLACK TOPPED BEFORE THE WINTER. IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

THE INTEGRITY OF THE DRIVEWAY HAS CAUSED THE WALL TO FALL.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT'S NOT BEING A GOOD NEIGHBOR.

>> JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE WATER.

THAT IS A LIGHT RAIN STORM. OKAY? AND THAT'S THE RUN OFF YOU ARE SEEING HITTING OUR DRIVEWAY, YOU SHOULD SEE WHEN IT'S REALLY COMING DOWN. AND THAT WATER HAS TO GO SOMEPLACE. IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT WHERE THE WATER COMES TO THE SIDEWALK, YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT A CONCRETE SIDEWALK. THAT WATER GOES UNDERNEATH THE SIDEWALK AND IT HAS DESTROYED THE SIDEWALK WHERE IT'S COLLAPSING, WHERE THERE IS A MANHOLE OVER, SEWER DRAIN TILE. THAT'S BECAUSE OF IT.

I'M SURPRISING THAT I KNOW THAT I'M GETTING GRAVEL ALL OVER THAT. I TRIED EVERYTHING I CAN.

I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO -- I DID IT IN COLLEGE, THAT'S WHAT I DID FOR A LIVING IS TAR DRIVEWAYS. I WAS DOING IT EVERY YEAR TO THE POINT WHERE I CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE BECAUSE IT -- THERE IS NOTHING TO PUT IT ON. TRY SNOW BLOWING OR SHOVELING THAT DRIVEWAY. I'M TOO OLD FOR THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

THAT'S HAPPENED ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION.

MORE THAN ONE PERSON HAS INJURED THEMSELVES ON THIS DRIVEWAY.

PROMISES MADE AND NOT KEPT. INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHS YOU PROVIDED. OKAY, MARK GOYER.

WHATEVER ORDER THEY HAND ME THE SHEETS.

>> THANK YOU. I'LL TAKE A COUPLE OF MINUTES HERE. MY NAME IS MARK GOYER, 159TUOUSER COURT IN WORTHINGTON.

PAST PRESIDENT, CURRENT BOARD MEMBER OF SHARON TOWNSHIP

MEMORIAL HALL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THIS IS NOT THE TOPIC WE'RE ON. THIS IS THE HOLIDAY INN TOPIC.

YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE OTHER TOPIC.

>> I GET MY T TIME BACK, RIGHT?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YOU WILL GET YOUR IME BACK.

>> GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

AS LEE INDICATED, WE STARTED THIS A LONG TIME AGO.

IT HAS BEEN A VERY EDUCATIONAL PROCESS.

YOU SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF YOUR ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BOARD, THE BZA, THE PLANNING COMMISSION. AS YOU CAN SO WE WENT THROUGH QUITE A BIT OF ITERATIONS OF THE PLANS THAT WERE INITIALLY SUBMITTED. WHAT WE WERE LOOKING AT WAS REDEVELOPING A FAIRLY MAJOR CORNER HERE IN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. YOUR BOARDS TOOK IT UPON THEMSELVES TO MAKE IT A BETTER PRODUCT.

WE'RE HERE THIS EVENING HAVING BEEN THROUGH ALL OF THOSE BOARDS, I THINK LEE POINTED OUT THEY WERE PROBABLY 15 DIFFERENT MEETING, PUBLIC MEETINGS THAT WE WENT TO.

AND A LARGER NUMBER OF PRIVATE MEETINGS WITH STAFF IN ORDER TO FURTHER HONE THE RODUCT THAT YOU SEE BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING. AS WE WENT THROUGH THE PROCESS, THERE WAS A DESIRE TO RESENT THE CITY COUNCIL WITH THE TIF DOCUMENT, THAT IS THE THIRD DOCUMENT BEFORE YOU ALL THIS EVENING. AND AS A RESULT OF THAT PRESENTATION, WE WERE REQUESTED TO REZONE THE PROPERTY TO HE PUD. SO WE'RE HERE THIS EVENING WITH A PACKAGE THAT HAS BEEN THROUGH THE BOARD, THOROUGHLY VETTED.

MR. MEYERS HAS BEEN A TROOPER. BEEN THROUGH EVERY ONE OF THOSE MEETINGS OR AT LEAST ALMOST ALL OF THEM AND HEARD THE DISCUSSION. WHEN WE STARTED THE PROCESS, I THINK THE FIRST MEETING IN FEBRUARY OF 2016 AT THE HOLIDAY INN, LEE WAS THERE, I THINK 200 PEOPLE.

OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE WORKED WITH THE NEIGHBORS.

WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE NEIGHBORS.

OM IS HERE THIS EVENING. WHAT WE PRESENTED IS A DOCUMENT THAT WILL FIX PROBLEMS THAT OUR NEIGHBOR HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING.

[00:45:01]

OBVIOUSLY, AS LEE INDICATED THE BUILDINGF BUILT IN THE '70S, THE DRAINAGE AND SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE WAS INADEQUATE.

WE WOULD LIKE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

WE HAVE A STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM THAT WILL RELEASE THE ACCORDING TO IT OEPA, AS WELL AS THE CITY AND STATE REQUIREMENTS. WE'RE HERE A, TO GET APPROVAL FOR THE REZONING. B, TO ALLOW THE LOTS TO BE SUBDIVIDED. AND C, TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP WITH THE TIF DOCUMENT. AGAIN, THE REASON FOR THE SPLITS IS TO ALLOW FOR FINANCING PURPOSES.

WE SEE THEM AS THREE SEPARATE DEVELOPABLE SITES AND SO IT WAS THE CUMBENT ON US TO ALLOW THE FUNDING MECHANISM FOR THE DIFFERENT DEVELOPERS. WITH CITY'S RECOMMEND MAKE SURE WE PROVIDED FOR VEHICULAR AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS THROUGH EASEMENTS ACROSS THE SITES. WE WOULD LIKE TO GET STARTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. POOR OM HAS GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS FOR TWO YEARS. OUR NEIGHBORS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR US TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEM. WE WOULD LIKE A VOTE TONIGHT TO ALLOW US TO START AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

WE WOULD LIKE TO GET UNDER CONSTRUCTION PRIOR TO WINTER OF THIS YEAR. I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

OM IS HERE AND CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO SOLVE SOME PROBLEMS, TRAFFIC, STORMWATER DETENTION, ALL THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN MENTIONED FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YOU FEEL THE NEW PLAN YOU PRESENTED IS GOING TO ADDRESS THE DRAINAGE ISSUES WE JUST HEARD ABOUT?

>> WE SUBMITTED THE, OUR ENGINEER SUBMITTED THE PLAN.

AND I THINK THAT YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE UNDERGROUND DETENTION FACILITIES WILL BE AT THE WEST END.

SO WE HAVE STATED AND HAVE TO BY CODE, DETAIN THE WATER ON SITE AND RELEASE IT AT A PREDEVELOPMENT RATE.

SO YES, WE WANT TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEM.

WE DON'T WANT WATER GOING OVER THE SIDES ANYMORE.

IT'S SOMETHING TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEM.

>> WE HAVE A CONSULTANT AS OUR STORMWATER REVIEW.

THEY WERE INVOLVED WORKING WITH THE APPLICANT AND SERVICE AND ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT ON WHAT MECHANISM AND MEANS WOULD BE THE BEST FOR THIS SITE. SO IT HAS BEEN REVIEWED AND

APPROVED BY THEM ALSO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

MIC] >> YES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MR. PATEL? >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MY NAME IS OM PATEL WITH THE WITNESS GROUP.

WE STARTED THIS IS AS EVERYBODY SAID, A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

OUR INTENTION A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WAS TO GET A PLAN APPROVED AND A BUILDING HOPEFULLY COMPLETED BY TODAY.

AND SO OUR -- THERE IS NEVER INTENTION TO LET AN ISSUE CONTINUE TO GO FURTHER DOWN THE LINE WITHOUT ADDRESSING IT.

WHEN WE FIRST STARTED THIS WHOLE PROJECT, MY NUMBER ONE CONCERN WAS THE NEIGHBORS AND HOW THIS WAS GOING TO BE PERCEIVED AND HOW WE WERE GOING TO WORK WITH THE COMMUNITY TO MAKE SURE THE PROJECT WAS AN INTEGRATION INTO WORTHINGTON.

AND ALSO TO BE THE TRUE GATEWAY THAT IT NEEDS TO BE.

AND SO I HAVE SAT IN LIVING ROOMS, WE HOSTED MEETINGS, ET CETERA, TO REALLY KIND OF ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING TO WORK AND WHAT ISN'T.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO VER MAKE 100% OF THE COMMUNITY HAPPY WITH ANYTHING WE PUT HERE. BUT WE WIDDLED O WITWHITTLED OUR WAY TO A PLAN THAT WORKS.

WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE DRAINAGE ISSUES AND I'M SURE THE NEIGHBORS DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE ISSUES WHEN THEY BOUGHT THEIR HOMES. MR. ROZON DITCH OUTLINED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, WE DID DO THINGS WE COULD WITHOUT REDEVELOPING THE ENTIRE BACK SITE TO MANAGE THE ISSUE THE BEST WE COULD. AND THERE ARE TIMES, GIVEN THE

[00:50:06]

IMMENSE CITY OF THE SITE AND GRADE CHANGE THAT THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN. -- TO NOT ADDRESS THEIR ISSUES.

I THINK WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS TIME IS OF THE RANCE.

ESSENCE. WE NEED TO GET BUILDING PLANS GOING AND THE SITE WORK AND DRAINAGE FIXED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE'RE RIGHT NOW IT'S A RACE TO BEAT THE WINNER BECAUSE THE SITE IS DEMOED AND IT'S ABOUT TRYING TO GET IN BEFORE THE WINTER. THAT IS THE STAGE WE'RE AT.

FROM A -- AND AS FAR AS MY PROMISE TO MUTUALLY FIX THIS, AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT HAS TO BE A MUTUAL 50/50 KIND OF A THING WHERE WE GET TOGETHER AND FIGURE OUT THE BEST SOLUTION.

AS LONG AS WE'RE MUTUALLY MAKING EACH OTHER HAPPY, THAT IS THE BEST WAY TO MOVE FORWARD. I WAS NOT ABLE TO ENGAGE OVER THE PAST 6-8 MONTHS. THE WAY WE DO BUSINESS AT THE WITNESS GROUP AND THE WAY WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CONDUCT OURSELF IS TO HAVE MUTUAL RESPECT.

AS LONG AS IT'S LOST, I DISENGAGE.

HOWEVER, I'M GOING TO CONTINUE TO PROMISE WHAT I HAVE INITIALLY PROMISED, TO MAKE SURE WHATEVER WRONG CREATED OR WHATEVER HAS HAPPENED THAT WE CORRECT IT. I WOULD LIKE TO FIX THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM AND THEN DO THAT RATHER THAN CONTINUE TO PUT BAND AID ON AN ISSUE. THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT IN TERMS OF DEVELOPMENT. WE HOPE IT'S WELL PERCEIVED WITH YOU AND FOR APPROVAL TODAY SO WE CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH THE SOLUTION. AS.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ARE THERE ANY OTHER COUNCIL COMMENTS, MR. ROBINSON? QUESTIONS?

>> D. ROBINSON: I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM OUR STYENGINEER WHO IS SPECIALTY IS HYDROLOGY.

THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AND THE FIXES TO THE WATER ISSUE WHETHER YOU THINK IT WILL BE UNDERLINED WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN

EXPERIENCING. >> YES, MY SPECIALTY IS IN STORMWATER, IT HAPPENS TO BE AND I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE SITE WHEN I FIRST LOOKED AT IT. AND I WORKED CLOSELY WITH THE ENGINEER. QUITE CLOSELY FOR QUITE SOME PERIOD OF TIME ONCE THIS WAS BUILT.

THERE IS TWO PRIMARY INLETS WITHIN A FEW HUNDRED FEET OF THE PROPERTY IN QUESTION. AND A SECONDARY INLET AND A NICE STORMWATER, UNDERGROUND STORMWATER RETENTION.

INCREASE IMPERVIOUSNESS ON THE SITES AND STRUCTURE THERE.

I WAS ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT OUR DOWN STREAM FURTHER TOWARD THE RIVER WHERE THEY ARE TYING THIS IN.

WE WORKED CLOSELY WITH THEM TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE DECREASING THE PEAK FLOW RATES. THEY WORKED LONG AND HARD TO

ADDRESS THOSE CONCERNS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

MIC] >> THE INTERSECTION OF CAREN AND HIGH, WE CONTROL THAT TRAFFIC AND COORDINATE WITH O.D.O.T. AND CITY OF COLUMBUS OF THOSE LIGHTS NORTH OF THERE ON HIGH STREET AND WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND OVER THE OVERPASS THERE AS WELL.

AND THERE S SOME ENHANCEMENTS INCLUDED AND SOME WE'LL DO AND WE'LL DO OTHER IMPROVEMENTS FOR PEDESTRIAN AND CAR TRAFFIC

[00:55:08]

BOTH. >> BACK TO THE PREVIOUS SLIDE WITH THE -- THERE WAS A RETENTION BASIN AND PAVEMENT.

THAT'S TOUCHING THE RETENTION BASIN IN THE PREVIOUS PAVEMENT.

>> THE HATCHED AREA RIGHT HERE IS THE PREFERIOUS PAVERS.

YOU HAVE A RETENTION AREA IN THIS VICINITY.

>> UNDERGROUND STORAGE AREA. IN THE EVENT THERE IS AN OVERFLOW WE ALSO WORKED HARD TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT ANY SYSTEM CAN GET OVERFLOW. THERE IS NO FAIL-SAFE GUARANTEE OPPORTUNITY. SO IF THERE IS A 500 YEAR STORM THAT OVERWHELMS THE SYSTEM, THE FLOW WOULD GO TO THE STREET AS OPPOSED TO THE PROPERTY OWNER'S PROPERTY.

IT FLOWS ACROSS THE BOTTOM, TAIL END AT THE UNDERGROUND DETENTION AREA INTO THE STREET.

I THINK EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN IN THIS PROCESS FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS, THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS, THE APPLICANT, EVERYONE ON STAFF FOREGOING THROUGH THIS PROCESS, IT'S BEEN A PROBLEM FOR QUITE A WHILE BEFORE THE CURRENT APPLICANT EVEN OWNED THE BUILDING AND WE DEFINITELY WANT TO BE GOOD NEIGHBORS THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY.

IT LOOKS LIKE FROM MY PERSPECTIVE WE ARE MAKING IT EXPERT AND DAN BURTON TALK ABOUT -- KAREN AND HIGH STREET, THEY ARE WIDE OPEN WITHOUT A LOT OF STREET TREES OR PEDESTRIANS IN THAT AREA AND I THINK WITH THE ADDITION OF THE TREES AND THE BUILDING THAT WE WILL SLOW DOWN TRAFFIC TO THE POSTED BY SIGN BUT OBVIOUSLY HIGH STREET DOESN'T READ AS BEING THAT SPEED. I AM VERY HAPPY AND PLEASED

[01:00:05]

THAT W HAVE MORE PEDESTRIANIZED ZONING THERE WITH THE ONE STORY BUILDING AT KAREN AND HEINE.

FOR THE APPLICANT ALSO WORKING WITH THE CITY WITH THE TYPE OF USES FOR THE OUT PARCEL -- I KNOW THAT WENT THROUGH -- IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE-ONE OF THOSE PARCELS BUT

>> MR. PATEL, I HAVE APPRECIATED SPEAKING WITH YOU OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD, I THINK YOU SAID YOU WERE COMMITTED ONCE THE UNDERLYING ISSUES ARE ADDRESSED TO SEEKING AN AIMABLE ADDRESSING OF THE DAMAGE TO SEE IF YOU COULD COME TO SOME KIND OF AN AMEABLE -- TO THE RUN OFF.

>> AS I STATED, AT THE END OF THE DAY WE BOTH DIDN'T REALIZE WHEN WE BOUGHT THESE PROPERTIES THAT THESE ISSUES WERE GOING TO COME UP. WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO RESOLVE THE ISSUES. CAN I FIX EVERYTHING IN THE BACKYARD? NO, I CAN'T.

I'M WILLING TO COME HALFWAY TO SIT DOWN, REALLY ASSESS THE PROCESS AND -- THE RIGHT CONTRACTORS TO FIGURE OUT THE RIGHT FIX AND THEN IF IT WILL ONLY HELP THE COMMUNITY IN TERMS OF PROPERTY VALUES, ETC.

I WANTED FOR THE BENEFIT THEY CREATE AND UNDERSTAND AND KNOW IN GOOD FAITH WE ARE GOING TO ADDRESS.

I WOULD SAY YES, BUT I CAN'T COMMIT TO THE ENTIRETY BECAUSE ONCE YOU OPEN THAT UP, THEN YOU WILL FIGURE IT OUT.

>> I APPRECIATE THAT VERY MUCH. THANK YOU.

>> THANKS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHING ELSE? ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? ANY CONCERNS? IF NOT, MRS. THRESS CAN YOU CALL ORDINANCE 6-2019.

[7.B. Ordinance No. 07-2019 Subdivision - Worthington Gateway - 7007 North High Street Approving the Final Plat and Approving a Subdivider’s Agreement for the Worthington Gateway (7007 North High Street). Executive Summary: This Ordinance approves a Subdivision of Land at 7007 North High Street.

ORDINANCE 6-2019 PASSED. ORDINANCE 7-2019 IS APPROVING 7007 HIGH STREET, I THINK STAFF HAS ALREADY BRIEFED THIS.

>> WE ARE PREPARED TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HEARING NONE, CAN YOU TAKE THE ROLL ON ORDINANCE 7-2019.

[7.C.

Executive Summary: This Ordinance authorizes and accepts the parcels of real property located at 7007 North High Street to allow for an Urban Redevelopment Tax Increment Financing Program for the property. Recommendation: Approve as Presented Legislative History: Introduced March 4, 2019]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: PASSED. ORDINANCE 8-2019.

7007 NORTH HIGH STREET. MR. GRAYSON.

>> YEAH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL. THIS IS A PORTION OF FINANCE AND ARRANGEMENT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT.

THIS EVENING WE WILL TALK ABOUT IT.

WE HAVE ROB MCCARTHY WHO REPRESENTS US ON THIS MATTER

TODAY AS WELL. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

I DO HAVE IN ADDITION TO DIRECTOR LINDSEY.

WE HAVE ROB MCCARTHY REPRESENTING THE CITY AND THE PROPERTY OWNER AS WELL AS CHRIS NEZOVIC FROM VOORHEES PROPERTIES REPRESENTING THE DEVELOPER.

AS MR. GREESON, PART ONE OF TWO. THE CITY HAS BEEN IN

[01:05:02]

DISCUSSIONS WITH THE PROPERTY OWNER SINCE 2006 ABOUT THE TIFF, WHAT YOU WILL SEE BEFORE YOU TODAY IS AN URBAN REDEVELOPMENT TIFF. IT'S THE BEST FORM OF ASSISTANCE FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT.

IT WILL ALLOW OFF SITE IMPROVEMENTS AS WELL AS ON-SITE IMPROVEMENTS AS ELIGIBLE COSTS. THE SECOND PART OF THIS LEGISLATION WLL COME BEFORE YOU IN A HEARING APRIL 15TH.

SO AGAIN, I WON'T GO OVER THIS SINCE LEE TOUCHED ON MOST OF THIS BUT FOUR STORY. 30,000 SQUARE FEET OF OFFICE SPACE AND 30,000 SQUARE FEET OF RETAIL.

YOU SAW THAT PICTURE A FEW TIMES.

I WANTED TO SOW THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF CITY REVENUES.

YOU WILL SEE SCHOOL REVENUES AND ANNUALIZED COUNTY REVENUES.

AS YOU CAN SEE FOR THE CTY REVENUES WE WILL START THE BED TAX REVENUE, THE TOTAL IS 10%. 6% GOES TO THE CITY.

4% GOES TO THE COUNTY. THAT $216,000 IS STAYING CONSISTENT WITH WHAT WE ARE GENERATING NOW.

SO WHILE WE ARE CUTTING THE ROOMS THE PRICE PER ROOM IS GOING UP SO WE EPECT IT TO STAY RELATIVELY THE SAME AS TODAY. I WILL GET INTO THE DIFFERENT TIERS OF THE TIF AND HOW MUCH COULD BE REIMBURSED.

PUT IN TIERED THRESHOLDS BUT THIS IS A $17.5 VALUATION.

THE PROPERTY TAX REVENUES FOR THE SCHOOLS.

THIS IS AN ON-SCHOOL TIF APPROXIMATELY $555,000 A YEAR.

THE COUNTY REVENUES, BED TAX AGAIN, THEY RECEIVE 4%.

HOW MUCH SALES TAX REVENUE GENERATE USING A CONSERVATIVE PRICE PER SQUARE FOOT. LOOKING OVER $1 MILLION.

IN TOTAL YOU ARE LOOKING AT NORTH OF $2 MILLION IN IMPACT TO THE CITY AND THE COUNTY. VERY QUICKLY.

ON THE TIF STRUCTURE IT'S POSING 30-YEAR, 100% NON-SCHOOL TIF. THE WAY A TIF WORKS, TAX INCREMENT FINANCE, A BASELINE VALUE IS PROSEN.

THE CURRENT BASELINE VALUE OF IS $6.5.

THE COUNTY AUDITOR PICKS UP A $20 MILLION VALUATION, ANYTHING ABOVE THE $6.5 MILLION IS WHAT'S TIF'D.

ON THE 6.5 MILLION TEY WILL CONTINUE TO RECEIVE.

WHAT THE TIF DOES IT REDIRECTS INTO A SEPARATE POT.

THE PROPERTY OWNER WILL CONTINUE TO PAY TAXES.

A PILOT. PAYMENT IN LIEU OF TAXES, THEY WILL PAY O FULL $7.5 VALUATION. WHAT WOULD BE COLLECTED AND IT WOULD BE BACKED INTO A TIF FUND. WE WOULD REIMBURSE THE DEVELOPER AS FUNDS BECOME AVAILABLE SO IT IS A PAY AS YOU GO. THE REIMBURSEMENTS WOULD NEVER EXCEED THE AMOUNT AVAILABLE IN THAT TIF FUND.

A LITTLE ABOUT URBAN REDEVELOPMENT TIF.

WHY WE ARE HERE TODAY, THE CITY CAN DECLARE ANY IMPROVEMENT OF PUBLIC PURPOSE. IF ONE, THE FEE TITLE TO THE PARCEL HELD PRIOR TO THE ADOPTION OF THE TIF ORDINANCE THAT'S COMING BEFORE YOU APRIL 5TH, SO THIS PIECE NEEDED TO COME BEFORE YOU FIRST. THE FEE OF THE PARCEL IS CONVEYED BEFORE ADOPTION OF THE MINUTES.

YOU WOULD ADOPT IT APRIL 15TH. WE NEED TO SPECIFY THAT LEGISLATION. WE HAVE THE PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS.

[01:10:05]

THE ELIGIBLE PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS WHICH I WILL GET FOR YOU. WE ARE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE THE SCHOOL BARD 14-DAY NOTICE THAT'S BEEN DONE AND THIS WAS PROVIDED FEBRUARY 27TH OF '19. SCHOOL BOARD APPROVAL NOT REQUIRED BECAUSE TIS IS A NON-SCHOOL TIF.

NO COMPENSATION AGREEMENTS WITH THE SCHOOLS.

THEY ARE RECEIVING ALL OF THE MONEY THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RECEIVING. CITY COUNCIL WILL GIVE US DIRECTION TO CREATE THE FUND. PERFECT BARTER WILL CREATE A FUND AND BE REIMBURSED TO THE DEVELOPER.

IT GETS INTO THE MEAT ABOUT THE TIF AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT.

I WON'T GET INTO TOO MUCH BECAUSE THIS WILL COME BACK BEFORE YOU IN APRIL. BUT THIS IS THE DETAILS.

WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT, WE ARE ACTUALLY CREATING THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT TIES THE P.U.D. TO THE TIF. SO WE HAVE THINGS WE WANT AND EXPECT AS A RESULT OF THE P.U.D. WITH THE TIF, THE DEVELOPER IS EXPECTING REIMBURSEMENT. WANTED A DOCUMENT TO TIE THE TIF REIMBURSEMENTS. IF THEY VIOLATE, IF THE DEVELOPER VIOLATES THE P.U.D. WE DON'T HAVE TO REIMBURSE ON THE TIF BECAUSE WE ARE USING THE DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT AS A MECHANISM TO DO THAT. THE TIF IS PROJECTED TO GENERATE $6.2 MILLION. APPROXIMATELY 5.2 OF THE $6.2 WOULD BE REIMBURSED TO THE DEVELOPER.

WHILE THE TIF REIMBURSEMENT AT $3.4, IT TAKES IT UP TO $5.2 WITH THE ADDITIONAL INTEREST. WE ARE PAYING 4% INTEREST ON THE OFF-SITE IMPROVEMENTS. SO I DO WANT TO SPECIFY AND DELINEATE BETWEEN THE TWO. WE AREN'T PAYING INTEREST ON THE ON-SITE IMPROVEMENTS. YOU WILL SEE THE IMPROVEMENT, STREETSCAPING. YOU CAN SEE THE VALUATION BANDS THERE, $5 MILLION, $15 MILLION, $17.5.

IF IT ONLY PICKS UP THE 12.5 VALUATION, THE TIF IS CAPPED AT $1.5 MILLION. SO WHAT W WERE TRYING TO DO WITH THAT, I DIDN'T WANT AND STAFF DIDN'T WANT THE FEE VALUATION TO SIT AT $12.5 MILLION FOR THE FIRST 25 YEARS OF THE TIF NOT GENERATING MUCH. IN TERMS OF THE TIF FUND AND THEN FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS IT JUMPS TO 20 AND THEY RECEIVE THE FULL $4.3 MILLION REIMBURSEMENT.

SO WE DO HAVE THOSE BANDS. THEY NEED TO MAINTAIN THOSE BANDS FOR FIVE CONSECUTIVE YEARS BEFORE THEY ARE ELIGIBLE.

AGAIN, TIF CAN'T BE REIMBURSED. IT CAN'T EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE TIF FUND. WHATEVER SUBCONTRACTORS ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE AS A GUARANTEE THAT WOULD BE THE GUARANTEE ON THE PROJECT. THE CITY WILL GET TO INSPECT ALL OF THOSE IMPROVEMENTS, SO MANY YOU JUST HEARD ABOUT, DAN AND HIS TEAM AND OUTSIDE INSPECTORS.

AGREEMENT WITH THE NEIGHBORS AND THE WORTHINGTON MALL ON THE LAND NEEDED FOR THE INTERSECTION.

YOU HAVE GOT THE ON-SITE IMPROVEMENTS THAT ARE VALUED ABOUT $716,000 AND THEN YOU HAVE THE OFF-SITE IMPROVEMENTS.

THOSE ARE TRUE PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS

[01:15:03]

THAT REPRESENT $2.6 MILLION WHICH IS ABOUT 78% OF THE TOTAL PROJECT. THAT'S MY LAST SLIDE, I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. IF IT'S TECHNICAL IN NATURE ABOUT THE TIF FOR THE REVISED CODE, YOU KNOW, DIRECTOR LINDSEY OR ROB MCCARTHY CAN JUMP IN.

>> I'M A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED ABOUT THE MONEY GOING TO A SCHOOL OR NOT GOING TO A SCHOOL. ARE WE DIVERTING ALL THE ADDITIONAL REVENUE SO WE ARE NOT MAKING THE SCHOOL WHOLE.

>> THE SCHOOLS ARE WHOLE. EVERY DOLLAR THE SCHOOL WOULD BE ENTITLED, IF IT'S A $20 MILLION PROPERTY VALUATION, EVERY DOLLAR THE SCHOOL WOULD NORMALLY BE ENTITLED TO WOULD STILL GO TO THE SCHOOLS. IT WOULD BE ALL OF THE OTHER

ENTITIES. >> SO THE MAJORITY OF THE COUNTY MONEY WILL KEEP IN WORTHINGTON?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. BUT YOU DID SEE, YU SAW THE ECONOMIC IMPACT. YOU KNOW, THE ARGUMENT IS ALWAYS MADE WITH A TIF, IF NOT FOR THE PROJECT HAPPENING, THERE WOULDN'T BE DOLLARS IN THE TIF FUND.

>> THE BASELINE VALUATION ALWAYS GOES TO ALL THE ENTITIES IT HAS BEEN GOING TO AND CONTINUE TO GO TO?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. WE AREN'T TAKING DOLLARS AWAY FROM ENTITIES THEY ARE RECEIVING TODAY.

THEY WILL MAINTAIN THE REVENUES THEY ARE RECEIVING TODAY.

IT'S THE EXCESS ABOVE THAT BASELINE.

>> EVEN THAT ACCESS, WE ARE STILL GIVING THAT TO THE

SCHOOLS. >> CORRECT.

>> OKAY. >> HOW IS THE PERCENT GENERATED?

>> WE ACTUALLY REQUESTED LOWER. 6% WAS THE NEGOTIATED RATE.

I KNOW THERE WAS A STATUTORY PIECE ON THIS.

>> THE CITY ISN'T PUTTING FUNDS INTO THIS.

DAVID IS RIGHT, IT'S A NEGOTIATED RIGHT, BOTH SIDES STATED THEIR CASES TO THE AMOUNT.

THE CITY ISN'T FUNDING THE DEVELOPMENT.

BASICALLY WE ARE HAVING THE STREET IMPROVEMENTS, THE INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS. THE STREETSCAPING ALL BEING DONE BY THE DEVELOPER WITH THE DEVELOPER'S DOLLARS SO WE DON'T HAVE ANY FUNDING COSTS TO GO TO BOND MARKET TO PAY FOR THOSE IMPROVEMENTS OR TO HAVE TO USE OTHER AVAILABLE CITY FUNDS FOR THAT PURPOSE. SO THAT WAS PART OF THE CALCULATION OF THE AGREEING TO THE AMOUNT, IT'S MORE THAN THE RATE OF INTEREST THAT THE CITY MIGHT OTHERWISE EARN ON MONEY AND MR. BARTTER COULD SPEAK TO WHAT WE MIGHT PAY ON MONEY BUT

THIS WAS A NEGOTIATED RATE. >> MR. BARTTER WHAT IS THE RATE AND COULD WE EXPECT THE PRIVATE ENTITY TO PAY MORE THAN WE PAY?

>> I WOULD EXPECT THAT BECAUSE IT'S TAX EXEMPT.

WE ISSUED NOTES AT 2.1%. OBVIOUSLY A 30-YEAR BOND WOULD HAVE A HIGHER INTEREST RATE THAN A ONE-YEAR NOTE.

BUT RIGHT NOW 2.1% IS OUR CLOSEST EXAMPLE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF NOT, MRS. THRESS COULD YOU CALL

THE ROLL ON ORDINANCE 8-2019. >>

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ORDINANCE NUMBER 8-2019 HAS PASSED. ORDINANCE NUMBER 10?

>> I JUST WANT TO INTRUDE ONE SECOND.

[01:20:03]

I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL. I KNOW IT'S A THANKLESS JOB.

I REALLY THINK THE PROJECT WILL BE AN ASSET TO WORTHINGTON, SO JUST SO YOU KNOW THAT. IT'S JUST, WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE THINGS ARE DONE CORRECTLY AND YOU HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU FOR COMING.

MOVING ONTO NEW LEGISLATION TO BE INTRODUCED.

RESOLUTION 15-2019 AUTHORIZING THE ACQUISITION OF CERTAIN REAL ESTATE ITERESTS INVOLVING PARCELS 7 AND 15 FOR THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT PROJECT.

PROJECT NUMBER 602-14. MOVED BY MS. DOROTHY.

SECONDED. >> THIS IS THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY PROJECT WHICH IS THE WORTHINGTON GALLINA BRIDGE HUNTLY ROAD INTERSECTION. TWO ACQUISITIONS OF SIGNIFICANT PARCELS. AND MR. LINDSEY IS GOING TO OVERVIEW THEM AND PROBABLY TELL BETTER JOKES THAN ME.

>> I WILL LEAVE THE JOKES TO MR. BARTTER, HE SEEMS TO BE OUR STAFF EXPERT IN THAT AREA. THE RESOLUTION BEFORE YOU TONIGHT IS THE FIRST OF ONE OF SEVERAL WE WILL BE BRINGING OVER THE COURSE OF THIS PROJECT. IF YOU WILL RECALL, YOU PASSED ORDINANCE 61-2018, INTRODUCED AT THE END OF THE YEAR AND PASSED IN JANUARY. WHICH SET FORTH THE PROCESS BY WHICH WE WOULD BRING CERTAIN PARCELS BACK TO YOU BASED ON THE DOLLAR AMOUNT OR BASED ON THE AMOUNT OVER THE FAIR MARKET VALUE ESTIMATE IN TERMS OF A NEGOTIATED PRICE.

THEY EXCEED THE VALUATION AND THEY BOTH HAD AN INCREASE THAT WAS ABOVE THE $3,000 RANGE THAT THE CITY MANAGER HAS AUTHORITY FOR. BOTH OF THESE PARCELS WERE REVIEWED BY THE DISTRICT TEAM INVOLVING THE REAL ESTATE ACQUISITION. THEY WATCH THESE IN TERMS OF THE VALUATIONS. THESE CAME IN WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE A REASONABLE AMOUNT. WE ARE ASKING APPROVAL FOR THESE TWO PARCELS. ONE OF THEM, PARCEL 15 IS A CRITICAL PIECE AND ONE THAT CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THAT THE LAND OWNER AND WORKING WITH OUR O-DOT CERTIFIED NEGOTIATORS WAS ABLE TO REACH A RESOLUTION SHORT OF THE APPROPRIATION

PROCESS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: CAN

SOMEONE WITH THE ARROW SHOW US. >> PARCEL 15, 700 HUNTLY ROAD, THE LARGE PARCEL. AND THEN 401 BRIDGE IS RIGHT

THERE. >> THANK YOU, DIRECTOR.

PARCEL 1 WAS A CRITICAL PIECE BECAUSE THAT NEEDS TO OCCUR IN ORDER TO ALLOW UTILITY RELOCATION WORK PROMPTLY THE LATER PART OF THIS SUMMER AND FALL SO THE CONSTRUCTION CAN LATER PROCEED. WE ARE ASKING APPROVAL OF THESE TWO PARCELS, 7 AND 15 IN THE AMOUNT SET FORTH IN THE

RESOLUTION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS? IF NOT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF RESOLUTION 15-2019 SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THIS WAS INTRODUCED BY MR. ROBINSON, MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MR. SMITH, SECOND BY MR. MYERS.

NOW WE HAVE IT ON THE TABLE. >> ARE YOU SAYING I WOULD BE PROPOSING THE INTRODUCTION OF THE RESOLUTION?

I WOULD RATHER NOT. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, I THINK I MENTIONED THIS AT A PREVIOUS MEETING.

OHIO MUNICIPAL LEAGUE HAS IS ADVOCATING.

THERE IS A HOUSE ADOPTED VERSION THAT IS SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT. IT ALSO HAS A VARIETY OF OTHER MEASURES EMBEDDED IN THERE AND IT IS CURRENTLY UP FOR DISCUSSION IN THE SENATE. JUST IN TERMS OF THE REVENUE, I BELIEVE ON THE SECOND PAGE OF YOUR MEMO, THERE'S AN OUTLINE, THE CITY IS PROJECTED TO RECEIVE ABOUT $587,000 SINCE STATE FISCAL YEAR 2020 UNDER THE FORMULA.

WORTHINGTON WOULD RECEIVE A LITTLE OVER $1 MILLION IN FISCAL YEAR 2020. WE ALLOCATE TO OUR STREET MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR FUND AND CITY STATE HIGHWAY FUND.

AS YOU KNOW THESE FUNDS ARE HEAVILY SUBSIDIZED.

HISTORICALLY THOSE HAVE BEEN RELATIVELY FLAT FOR US.

AND OF COURSE OUR EXPENSES KEEP CLIMBING BECAUSE THE COST OF ROAD MAINTENANCE DOESN'T GET CHEAPER.

AND WE FOR A LONG TIME HAVE BELIEVED THAT STATE REVENUES FOR BOTH ROADS THAT MUNICIPALITIES MAINTAIN AS WELL AS ROAD PROJECTS IN THE AREA NEEDED ADDITIONAL REVENUE.

WE HAVE CLOSELY MONITORED THIS PROGRAM, THE TRACK PROGRAM WHICH ON A STATE WIDE LEVEL DOESN'T ADEQUATELY FUND MAJOR PROJECTS. WE WERE FORTUNATE TO GET 270 FUNDED WHEN WE DID BECAUSE IN THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT IT PROBABLY WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN FUNDED BECAUSE THERE'S INSUFFICIENT REVENUES. LIKEWISE DOLLARS WE ARE ACCESSING. FUTURE STATE PROGRAMS WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO ACCESS WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS AS WELL AS OUR DAILY

OPERATIONS. >> WOULD THESE FUNDS COME OUT OF O-DOT. THE INCREASED REVENUE, WOULD

THIS BE COMING OUT OF O-DOT? >> THERE WOULD BE A DISTRIBUTION FORMULA THAT MUCH WOULD GO TO O-DOT.

COUNTIES TOWNSHIPS AND MUNICIPALITIES BASED ON THAT

FORMULA. >> I DON'T BELIEVE IT ACTUALLY PASSES THROUGH O-DOT BUT I'M NOT 100% SURE ON THE FLOW OF

FUNDS. >> THE HEART OF MY REACTION IS THE BENEFITS TO THE CITY ARE PHENOMENAL.

I PERSONALLY CAN SUPPORT INCREASED GASOLINE TAX, GASOLINE IS A FOSSIL FUEL. I WOULD LIKE TO DISCOURAGE ITS USE AND SO ON. THE PROBLEM IS A GASOLINE TAX, IT'S A REGRESSIVE TAX. I'M NOT ENTHUSED ABOUT

[01:30:07]

SUPPORTING IT. THAT'S MY INITIAL REACTION.

>> I JUST HAD A COMMENT OR A SUGGESTION THAT WE ADD SOMETHING TO THE RESOLUTION TO SAY THAT WE ALSO SUPPORT INVESTMENT IN PUBLIC TRANSIT. THEY SERVE TRANSPORTATION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: AMEND THAT MOTION?

>> I SECOND THAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FURTHER DISCUSSION ON AMENDING THE ORDINANCE -- NOT THE ORDINANCE. THE MOTION TO INCLUDE IN THIS RESOLUTION SUPPORT FOR INVESTMENT IN PUBLIC

TRANSPORTATION. >> IWOULD SAY INCREASED

INVESTMENT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY,

INCREASED INVESTMENT. >> WE WOULD SUGGEST THEY MAYBE SAY THE COUNCIL, MAKE A SECTION TWO THAT SAYS THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON OHIO SUPPORTS ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR PUBLIC TRANSIT IN THE STATE OF OHIO.

THERE IS ANOTHER ISSUE THAT MUNICIPALITIES --

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DISCUSSION ON THE MOTION TO AMEND. IF NOT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE AMENDMENT ALONE SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? NOW MOVING BACK, IS THERE ANY OTHER AMENDMENTS TALK ABOUT THE LICENSE TAX?

>> YEAH, WE GOT, AFTER WE PUBLISHED THIS WE GOT THE ADDITIONAL QUESTION ABOUT, LAST YEAR THE OHIO COUNTIES WERE GIVEN THE AUTHORITY TO LEVY AN ADDITIONAL $5 VEHICLE REGISTRATION TAX ON MOTOR VEHICLES REGISTERED IN THEIR JURISDICTION. CITIES HAVE BEEN LOBBYING FOR THAT SAME PERMISSIVE AUTHORITY. BUT HAVE NOT AT THIS POINT BEEN GRANTED THAT AUTHORITY. THAT'S A POSITION YOU COULD ADD TO THIS IF YOU WANTED TO, WHICH IS NOT THAT YOU ARE ADVOCATING FOR INCREASING $5, YOU ARE ADVOCATING FOR THE AUTHORITY TO DO IT IF YOU AS A BODY DETERMINED IT WAS IMPORTANT TO DO SO. SO THIS IS A FEE ON, THAT WE CURRENTLY LEVY A FEE ON EACH REGISTRATION, EACH VEHICLE, EACH LICENSED VEHICLE. COUNTIES LAST YEAR WERE GIVEN THE ABILITY TO RAISE $5 FOR EACH VEHICLE, CITIES ASKED FOR

IT BUT WEREN'T GIVEN IT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

[01:35:21]

SOMEBODY WANT TO MOVE THAT WE AMEND THE ORDINANCE TO INCLUDE

THAT? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IT'S A LICENSE FEE, NOT A TAX. LET'S LOOK AT AMENDING AND THEN YOU COULD WORD SMITH AND GET IT OUT TO WORD SMITHING.

>> OKAY. >> A GREAT CONCEPT WE WILL GET ANOTHER REVIEW BEFORE IT GETS SENT OUT SOMEPLACE.

>> I COULD READ IT INTO THE RECORD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: TIMING IS CRITICAL.

>> IT PROBABLY WILL BE THROUGH THE SENATE VERY, VERY SOON.

>> IS THERE A SECOND? >> BETH SECONDED IT.

>> PASS THIS DOWN AND SEE IF IT WORKS FOR YOU.

THANK YOU, ROBYN I BELIEVE THE STATE STATUTE CALLS IT A TAX.

>> PRESIDENT B MICHAEL: DOES THIS LOOK FINE TO THE MOVER?

>> BUT THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE LICENSE TAX AND IT DOESN'T HAVE THE ADDITIONAL AMENDMENT THAT WE ALREADY --

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: RIGHT, I HAD A FEELING.

I KNEW THIS LICENSE TAX WAS COMING UP.

WE GOT IN THERE SOMETHING ELSE. WE WILL HAVE THE ONE OTHER ITEM

ALSO ADDED TO THIS. >> I THINK IF YOU ADOPTED THIS LANGUAGE ON THE PAGE THAT WOULD BE SECTION 3, NOT SECTION 2.

>> OKAY, ALL RIGHT. SO WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND TO ADD THE LANGUAGE REGARDING LEVYING THE ADDITIONAL MOTOR VEHICLE TAX. SECTION 3.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON JUST THAT AMENDMENT.

IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. THAT AMENDMENT IS THERE.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE TO BE AMENDED TO THIS ORDINANCE, TO THIS RESOLUTION? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING RESOLUTION 16-2019 AS AMENDED SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. OPPOSED? OKAY. RESOLUTION 16-2019 IS PASSED.

IS THAT OKAY TO INTRODUCE. WE WILL START IN 9-A-1 I MAY B TURNING THE GAVEL OVER TO MR. MYERS, I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING FOR FIVE MINUTES A 9:30 AND THEN I'M COMING BACK.

IF WE DN'T GET TO IT BY 9:25 I WILL DISAPPEAR AND BE BACK JUST SO EVERYONE IS UP FRONT. THIS IS THE CITY COUNCIL

[01:40:02]

DISCUSSING AN APPEAL. HOW DO YOU WANT TO BEGIN WITH

THIS? >> I THINK WE SUBMITTED THE INFORMATION IN THE PACKET IN TERMS OF THE BACKGROUND ON THE ISSUE. CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG BUT I BELIEVE THE PROCEDURE IS THE COUNCIL NEEDS TO DETERMINE WHETHER IT WNTS TO HEAR THE APPEAL AND THEN IT WOULD SCHEDULE IT. I THINK TYPICALLY YOU WOULD MAKE THAT DECISION BASED ON THE RECORD.

AND A REVIEW OF THE REQUESTERS. COUNCILMEMBER RBINSON'S

SUBMITTAL. >> ARE WE GOING TO HEAR --

>> THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT. THIS IS APPEAL AROSE FOLLOWING MY ATTENDANCE AND OBSERVATIONS AT THE FEBRUARY 8TH A.R.B.

MEETING. CONVERSATIONS I HAD WITH FOUR MEMBERS, BOTH THOSE VOTING FOR AND AGAINST THE CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS, WHICH IS THE SUBJECT OF TONIGHT'S REQUEST FOR AN APPEAL HEARING. AN OUTLINE OF THE A.R.B.

PROCEEDINGS WITH SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS AND PHOTOS HAS BEEN PROVIDED TO ALL OF US AND DOESN'T REQUIRE DEEP REPETITION BY ME. QUICK SUMMARY SHOULD SUFFICE AS FOLLOWS AS I SEE IT. LOCATED ON THE PRIMARY EAST-WEST THOROUGHFARE OF THE ARCHITECTURAL DISTRICT HAD MINOR WORK DONE ON IT. THE REPLACEMENT OF THREE WINDOWS WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL BEING OBTAINED BY THE A.R.B.

AND FOLLOWING REMOVAL OF LANDSCAPING IN 2018 WHICH REVEALED THE WORK PREVIOUSLY CONCEALED BY SAID BUSHES.

A PUBLIC COMPLAINT WAS RECEIVED IN DECEMBER LEADING TO APPROVAL ON 2/28/19. RESULT BEING A 4-3 VOTE GRANTING THE CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS.

I SHOULD REPEAT WHAT IS BEING CONSIDERED AND VETTED ON TONIGHT IS NOT THE APPEAL ITSELF BUT WHETHER WE CITY COUNCIL DETERMINE THE APPEAL HAS SUFFICIENT MERIT THAT WE ELECT TO DISCUSS IT AND THE ISSUES IT EVOKES AT A LATER DATE WITHIN THE PRESCRIBED 60-DAYTIME PERIOD.

BEFORE GOING ON I WISH TO BE CLEAR THIS REQUEST FOR AN APPEAL SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED IN ANY WAY AS A CRITICISM BY ME OF THE GENERAL OPERATIONS OF, OR ANY OF THE PERSONS INVOLVED WITH THE SHARON MEMORIAL HALL, WHICH IN FACT I HOLD IN HIGH ESTEEM AND GREATLY RESPECT THEIR DEVOTED WORK ON BEHALF OF SERVICE MEMBERS, VETERANS, THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE AND THROUGH IT ALL THE PRESERVATION OF A HISTORIC LANDMARK BUILDING.

THANK YOU. TO THE ISSUE AT STAKE TONIGHT.

WILL WE HEAR THE APPEAL? I BELIEVE THERE ARE TWO CRITERIA THAT SUCH A REQUEST OUGHT TO MEET IN ORDER FOR US TO PROCEED WITH A HEARING. FIRST THAT IT'S NOT FRIVOLOUS AND SECOND IN OUR PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT WE BELIEVE IT'S POSSIBLE THE A.R.B. MISSED SOMETHING IN SOME MANNER.

EVEN IN THE FACTS CONSIDERED OR AS I BELIEVE IS THE CASE HERE, THE UNDERLYING STANDARD USED IN FORMING THEIR JUDGMENT.

I BELIEVE THIS CASE MEETS BOTH THIS CRITERIA.

THE CASE IS NOT FRIVOLOUS BECAUSE FIRST, THE MEANS TO OBTAIN APPROVAL WEREN'T CARRIED OUT.

INDIVIDUALS MAY INCLUDE THAT PRE-APPROVAL IS UNNECESSARY, EVEN UNADVISABLE. IF DISCOVERED AFTER THE FACT THEY MAY UNDERSTANDABLY BELIEVE IF THIS DECISION IS ALLOWED TO STAND AS-IS, THAT THE A.R.B. IS LIKELY TO SHOULDER AND THE ALREADY-COMPLETED WORK CONSIDERED NOT AS AN INFRINGEMENT BUT ESTABLISHED FACT THAT ACTUALLY WORKS IN THEIR FAVOR. AND SECONDLY, THIS CASE IS NOT FRIVOLOUS FOR SUBSTANTIVE BUILDING.

TWO AND A HALF BLOCKS FROM THE VILLAGE GREEN IN THE HEART OF OUR DISTRICT. THIS BRINGS ME TO BASIC CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL OF A HEARING.

THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE A.R.B. MISSED THE MARK BEYOND SIMPLY

[01:45:02]

MISCONSTRUING THE FACTS. STATED PURPOSE AND MEANS OF ITS PER PET WAIGS. I BELIEVE THE BOARD DID ERROR IN THIS MANNER, NOT IN AN INTENTIONAL WAY BUT INCREASINGLY FREQUENT APPEAL TO SUBJECTIVITY.

GUIDELINES PASSED IN 2004, BOTH CREATED SPECIFICALLY TO MINIMIZE, TO CIRCUMSCRIBE, TO RESTRAIN SUBJECTIVITY WITHIN THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW DISTRICT.

A.R.B. WAS CONCURRENTLY ESTABLISHED TO ADMINISTER AND ENFORCE THIS CODE. SECONDLY THE DESIGN GUIDELINES RATHER THAN ENDORSING OR ENABLE SUBJECTIVITY AS SOME SUGGEST WAS PAINSTAKINGLY PREPARED BY MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY.

SPECIFICALLY, TWO MEMBERS OF THE DESIGN GUIDELINE STEERING COMMITTEE. IN SUM THE PURPOSE IS TO BETTER ENABLE COMPLIANCE WITH THE CODE AND NOT TO BE USED AS A MANS OF CIRCUMVENTING BY APPEALS TO SUBJECTIVITY.

THESE AND MORE ARE THE RELEVANT ISSUES AT STAKE AND IF THIS APPEAL IS HEARD WHAT I BELIEVE WILL BE AT THE HEART OF OUR COUNCIL DISCUSSION. FOR THESE REASONS AND MORE WE AS COUNCIL, THE BODY THAT PASSED THE ORDINANCES, I BELIEVE THIS TO BE OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: BEFORE I GO ONTO ANSWER OTHER PEOPLE'S COMMENTS, I PROMISED COUNCILMEMBER FOUST I WOULD READ WHAT HE WROTE TO US. MY ONLY COMMENT WOULD BE THIS IS A SIGNATURE BUILDING IN A KEY LOCATION.

AS A UNDERSTAND IT, ALL, WE, YOU, ARE DECIDING TONIGHT IS WHETHER TO HAVE A PUBLIC CONVERSATION ON THE MERITS.

>> THIS IS VALERIE WHO IS OUR FINANCE PERSON.

BRIEFLY, AS HAS BEEN POINTED OUT, THIS IS ABOUT SHARON TOWNSHIP MEMORIAL HALL, MAINTAINING THE HISTORICAL PRESENCE OF THAT BUILDING. AS STATED, ACTUALLY HONORS ALL VETERANS. WITH LIMITED FUNDS AVAILABLE.

[01:50:14]

WE ALLOW ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS THE V.F.W.

WE HAVE FIVE PAYING TENANTS AND ONE CHURCH MEMBERSHIP.

THE BOARD MEMBERSHIP TAKES THE STEWARDSHIP OF THIS MEMORIAL VERY SERIOUSLY. WE UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BOARD IN ITS ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN THE HISTORICAL VALUE AND FEATURES WITHIN TE WORTHINGTON DOWNTOWN AREA. THE ISSUE OF THE PROBLEM THAT'S AMONG US. IT WAS NOTED BY WORTHINGTON RESIDENT THAT THE THREE BASEMENT WINDOWS WERE NOT OF ERA. ONE IS TWO 3X3 WINDOWS, 1X3 FOOT ON THE EAST SIDE. THEY WERE COVERED WITH BOARDS.

THAT'S WHAT VALERIE, SHE WAS HERE AT THAT TIME.

THE THREE BASEMENT BLOCK WINDOWS WERE IN PLACE PROVIDED SECURITY, PRIVACY, STABILITY AND HEAT RETENTION.

WITH THE APPROVAL OF LAST MONTH'S A.R.B. VTE 4-3, WE HAVE ALREADY REMODELED THE WHITE ALUMINUM FRAMING.

THAT'S BEEN TAKEN CARE OF. LANDSCAPING WITHIN THE NEXT 60 DAYS ALSO DISCUSSED WILL BE COMPLETED.

WE HAD PEOPLE DOWN THERE FOR SEVERAL NIGHTS.

AND WE HAVE A LOT OF ITEMS IN THAT BASEMENT.

MY LAST COMMENT WOULD B, SHOULD WE BE ASKED TO REPLACE, TO REMOVE AND REPLACE THE EXISTING WINDOWS.

ONCE REPLACED AND NEW LNDSCAPE PLANTED, NO ONE WILL SEE THESE NEW WINDOWS. THOUGHT WE WOULD MENTION THAT AS WELL. ANY QUESTIONS?

>> IS THAT PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD?

>> OPEN TO THAT. >> THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WILL TURN THE MEETING OVER TO YOU FOR A FEW MINUTES BECAUSE I HAVE TO GO DO MY THING.

[01:55:02]

FIVE MINUTES I HAVE TO JUST EXCUSE MYSELF.

>> IF IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE, COULD WE TAKE JUST A FIVE MINUTE -- I COULD REALLY USE A FIVE-MINUTE BREAK RIGHT NOW.

IF THAT WOULD BE POSSIBLE. >> DOES ANYONE HAVE A PROBLEM

TAKING A 5-MINUTE RECESS? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ARE WE READY? WE WILL WILL RESUME.

THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING DECISION REGARDING THE GLASS BLOCK WINDOWS AT CHERYL HALL. WE HAVE HEARD FROM MR. ROBINSON.

ARE THERE ANY OTHERS HERE TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE?

OKAY, MR. MYERS? >>

>> I HAVE TO DISAGREE. OTHER THAN GENERAL ARCHITECTURAL STANDARDS OF WORTHINGTON WITH ENOUGH SPECIFICITY TO BE TO STANDARD. FOR ME THE ARGUMENT MORE IMPORTANT IN WHAT I PASSED, I LOOK AT THIS MUCH LIKE I DO IN MY PROFESSION, APPEAL TO A COURT.

WHILE IT MAY NOT BE EXACTLY ACCURATE, IT'S THE CLOSEST I HAVE. WHEN YOU RECEIVE A DECISION YOU DON'T FIND FAVORABLE YOU APPEAL TO THE COURT OF APPEALS AND THEY HAVE STANDARDS DEVELOPED OVER 200 YEARS OF CASE LAW WHICH SAYS THAT THE COMMON COURT GOT IT RIGHT.

TO APPEAL THERE MUST BE SOME FINDING THEY EITHER COMMITTED AN ERROR OF LAW THAT IS OBVIOUS OR THAT THEY ABUSED THE DISCRETION THEY WERE VESTED WITH.

I HAD THREE NAY VOTES. NO ONE SAID WHY.

WHAT IF YOU PUT A FAKE WINDOW -- TO ME THAT'S NOT A SOLUTION.

FINALLY, IS THIS REALLY WHAT WE WANT TO FIGHT ABOUT? NOW, IF -- WANTS TO TAKE DOWN BUILDING A, I WILL FIGHT ABOUT

[02:00:01]

THAT, THAT'S A SIGNIFICANT BUILDING IN A SIGNIFICANT SPOT.

WE HAVE A WINDOW HERE TAT SAT FOR FOUR YEARS.

NO ONE KNEW IT. SHOULD THEY HAVE APPLIED? ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY.

THEY UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT NOBODY SAW IT.

AND NOW YOU WANT TO TELL ME IT'S SIGNIFICANT.

NOBODY WILL SEE IT AGAIN. HOW DO WE APPROACH THE GUIDELINES AND ENFORCE THE GUIDELINES, BECAUSE THIS IS AN INTERPRETATION. GLASS BLOCKS AREN'T MENTIONED.

AND WE CAN STRICTLY COMPLY, OR WE CAN STRICTLY CONSTRUE ALL OF OUR GUIDELINES AND WE CAN ACTUALLY CHANGE THEM.

IN CASE MOST OF THE HOUSES IN THE DISTRICT ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GET ALTERED. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE -- ALL OF OUR ASPHALT SHINGLES, BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T COME ABOUT UNTIL THE TURN OF THE CENTURY AND WHY THEY WERE INSTALLED WAS BECAUSE OF WODEN WINDOW OR WOODEN SHINGLE WERE DRIVING RATES UP. WE'VE GOT TO GET RID OF THEM.

ALL OF OUR VINYL SIDING. WHICH WAS ALUMINUM SIDING.

INSTEAD OF REPLACING WINDOWS, THE SECOND PREFERRED METHOD IS PUT STORM WINDOWS UP. THAT'S ATTRACTIVE.

I USED TO HAVE THOSE. TACK THEM ON THE OUTSIDE.

I DON'T GET THAT ONE. ONE OF THE PREFERRED OUTSIDE MATERIALS. HARDY -- DIDN'T COME ON THE MARKET UNTIL 1980. IN FACT IN 2017 THEY GIVE OUT AN AWARD FOR RESTORATION. GAVE OUT AN AWARD TO A BUILDING IN MASSACHUSETTS THAT DATE BACK TO 1890.

ADJUDICATION WILL WORK FOR ONE PARTY FOR ONE SITUATION.

IF WE REALLY WANT TO CHANGE THE STANDARD, LET'S DO IT BY LEGISLATION SO IT APPLIES TO ALL PEOPLE.

I TAKE ISSUE THIS IS GOING TO SOMEHOW BE PRECEDENT FOR NOT ASKING. WELL I HAVE BEEN ON THE BOARD WHEN SOMEBODY WHO DIDN'T ASK AND DID SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT AND THEY PUT A SKY LIGHT IN THEIR HOUSE.

WE MADE THEM TAKE THE SKY LIGHT OUT, RESHEET THE ROOF, RESHINGLE THE ROOF AND TWO MONTHS LATER THEY MOVED.

I DON'T THINK THIS IS THE APPROACH, I DON'T THINK THIS IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR. I THINK THIS IS INSIGNIFICANT.

I THINK THAT IT'S NOT GOING TO SET A PRECEDENT FOR PEOPLE TO NOT ABIDE. I THINK THE STANDARD IS AGGRIEVED, NOT NON-FRIVOLOUS. SO I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS MERITS

AN APPEAL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY

THOUGHTS? >> I HAVE THOUGHTS.

SOMETHING MR. MYERS SAID ABOUT, GRANT YOU THEY HAVE COME TO A.R.B. FROM THE BEGINNING AND THEY DIDN'T.

I THINK THAT'S WHERE MY MIND IS. NOT ABOUT THE AESTHETICS OR PRODUCT MATERIALS. IT'S ABOUT THE PROCESS.

AND WE HAVE EASILY SAY IN THE DISTRICT -- OOPS, I JUST

[02:05:03]

DIDN'T DO IT. NOT TAT IS WHAT THEY ARE SAYING HERE. BUT IT LEAVES A LITTLE WIGGLE ROOM FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY HOUSES IN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT THAT HAVE GLASS BLOCK WINDOWS.

DO WE BRING ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE IN? THREE WINDOWS COVERED UP. NOW THEY ARE UNCOVERED BRIEFLY.

THEY WILL BE COVERED AGAIN, NO ONE WILL SEE THEM.

I AGREE WITH MR. MYERS, WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN THE REVIEW IN THE CASE. I THINK IT GOES BACK TO WHAT MR. SMITH SAID. I'VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY THIS WITH CITY STAFF AND OTHERS, THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHEN YOU ARE -- AM I IN THE A.R.B. DISTRICT. IF THIS IS SUPPOSED TO TEACH, TAKE A STEP BACK AND MAKING SURE THE DEVELOPERS COMING.

THEY HAVE TO TAKE THAT STEP WITH WHAT THE REQUIREMENTS ARE FOR A BASEMENT. THEY FOLLOWTHROUGH WITH THE GUIDELINE FRMT I THINK THAT IS A VERY IMPORTANT STATEMENT THAT WE NEED TO GET OUT AND LOOKING TO MAKE CHANGES WITHIN OUR CITY IN THE FUTURE AND ONGOING.

I ALSO DO AGREE WITH MR. MYERS THAT, I THINK, UNLESS THERE'S -- I DON'T THINK THIS MEETS THE STANDARDS OF BEING AGGRIEVED AND TO GO BACKTRACK OVER WHAT OUR BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS HAVE ALREADY APPROVED.

I DON'T THINK THIS IS THE SITUATION THAT WE SHOULD DO IT IN. MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT THE PROCESS IS TO DEVELOPING ANYTHING WITHIN OUR DISTRICT IS SOMETHING THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE KEP ON TELLING

EVERYONE ABOUT. >>

>> OF THE GUIDELINES.

[02:11:11]

GUIDELINES AND CODE. SECTION 11, 7701 DOESN'T HAVE THE WORD VILLAGE IN IT, IT SAYS ARCHITECTURAL CHARACTER WHICH IS DIFFERENT THAN THE GUIDELINES THAT WE HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I THINK I'M HEARING TWO THINGS.

ONE IS THE GUIDELINES WHETHER THE A.R.B.'S VIEW IS TO INTERPRET THE GUIDELINES. IT'S MY YEARS ON CUNCIL, THE A.R.B. HAS BEEN INTERPRETING THE GUIDELINES SINCE 2000.

THEY ALSO CONSIDER CODE. DOES THIS PARTICULAR BRINGING THIS APPEAL FORWARD, THERE ARE SOME COUNCILMEMBERS SITTING ON THIS COUNCIL SAYING BRING THE APPEAL FORWARD SO THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO TALK ABOUT IT. BUT IF THERE IS, THEN THE OTHER PART, IS THIS WHAT SHOULD BE HAPPENING IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE? WHAT'S THE GOAL OF BRINGING IT

FORWARD? >>

>> THEY DON'T HAVE THEIR CERTIFICATE.

WHICH MEANS -- >> THEY WOULD BE IN VIOLATION THE MINUTE WE VOTE. I AM FRUSTRATED WITH THIS CASE BECAUSE WHEN I READ THE MINUTES AND WE HAVE HAMMERED ON A.R.B.

FOR YEARS NOW ON THIS SUBJECT. STAFF HAS REWRITTEN THEIR MEMOS.

THEY HAVE CONSISTENTLY POINTED THIS OUT TO A.R.B.

I HAD THIS DISCUSSION WITH CHAIRMAN COULTER JUST THURSDAY NIGHT. OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING YES OR NO AND THEY DON'T APPLY THE GUIDELINES.

[02:15:21]

AS I READ THESE MINUTES, A.R.B. ISN'T DOING THEIR JOB AND THAT'S FRUSTRATING. I'M ON A ROLL, MAY I? I'M NOT HAPPY. I'M WITH YOU IF YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO A.R.B. AND RAIL ON THEM, I'M WITH YOU.

THIS ISN'T THE WAY TO DO IT. THERE ARE BETTER WAYS TO DO IT

THEN THIS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE ONLY THING I WAS GOING TO ADD, THE CITY CHARTER AS AMENDED REQUIRED A.R.B. AND M.P.C. WHEN THEY MAKE THESE DECISIONS TO

REFER BACK TO IT. >> WHEN THEY DO -- NOT THESE.

THIS IS SOMETHING THIS COUNCIL HAS TOLD A.R.B.

MR. BROWN, YOU KNOW THAT. YOU HAVE REWRITTEN YOUR MEMOS.

YOU HAVE HARPED ON THAT. AND IT'S ONE MORE REASON WHY WE KEEP SAYING IT AND WE'RE NOT DOING IT, WE GOT TO BRING OUR COMMISSIONS IN AND TALK TO THEM. THIS IS A BIG ISSUE.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THE DECISION IS ON THESE WINDOWS, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU. I HAVE GLASS BLOCK WINDOWS IN MY BASEMENT. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THEM.

I LIKE THE ARCHITECTURAL FEATURE OF THEM BUT THE ISSUE IS BIGGER. WHY DON'T WE KNOW FROM THE MINUTES TE WAY THEY DID IT. I HAVE FOUST SAYING LET'S PUT A FAKE WINDOW OVER IT. EVERYBODY GOES DEAD AND I GET A 4-3 VOTE. HOW CAN I REVIEW THAT?

I'M DONE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WANT TO ASK MR. LINDSEY A QUESTION. THAT IS, WITH THE APPEAL BEING REMOVED, REMOVING AN APPEAL, DO WE HAVE TO DO ANY SORT OF VOTE, OR JUST REMOVE THE APPEAL AND THAT TAKES CARE OF IT? I'M NOT SURE THE PROCEDURE WHEN AN APPEAL HAS BEEN FILED WHAT WE WANT TO DO IF SOMEBODY WITHDRAWS IT.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE HAD THAT EXPERIENCE SO FAR.

>> THE PERSON HAVING FILED THE APPEAL IS ESSENTIALLY INDICATING HIS DESIRE TO HAVE THE APPEAL WITHDRAWN.

I DO THINK IT WOULD PROBABLY BE APPROPRIATE FOR COUNCIL TO VOTE TO ACCEPT THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE APPEAL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. ROBINSON HAS VOTED TO WITHDRAW THE APPEAL. SECONDED BY MR. SMITH.

ANY DISCUSSION? >> I DON'T THINK YOU NEED TO

SECOND A WITHDRAWAL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT. COME ON.

JUST FOR PARLIAMENTARY -- >> I WILL CALL THE QUESTION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF ACCEPTING THE WITHDRAWAL, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. NOW WE GET TO MOVE ON.

>> WOULD YOU DO ME A FAVOR AND HURRY UP AND --

I'VE GOT FLASHLIGHTS, I'LL HELP. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK

[9.A.II. Liquor Permit - New (Shades Nail Bar LLC) Executive Summary: The Ohio Division of Liquor Control has notified the City of a request for a new liquor permit for Shades Nail Bar LLC located at 2285 W Dublin Granville Rd. Recommendation: Motion to Not Request a Hearing]

NEW SHADES -- REAL QUICK MR. GREESON?

>> WE DON'T HAVE ANY REASON FOR OBJECTION.

ANYTHING TO ADD. >> PRESIDENT MICHAELS, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WE DID A BACKGROUND AND EVERYTHING IS FINE WITH

THIS COMPANY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: KOWALCZYK MOVES WE DON'T GO FOR AN APPEALS HEARING.

SECOND BY MS. DOROTHY. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? >> WHAT IS THIS?

>> THIS IS WHERE THEY DO NAILS. >> YOU GUYS HAVE ALL THE FUN.

>> JUST HAVE A GLASS OF WINE WHERE YOU GET NAILS DONE.

>> WHERE MY WIFE GETS HER HAIRCUT.

>> YOU CAN GO TO THOSE PLACES AS WELL.

[9.B.I. Community Visioning Executive Summary: This agenda item will continue the discussion of the community visioning process.]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE WANT TO CONTINUE ON THIS ONE OR MOVE IT TO THE NEXT MEETING? BECAUSE WE HAVE EXECUTIVE SESSION TOO. ANY OTHER REPORTS MR. GREESON?

>> WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT COMMUNITY VISION?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NO WE WILL DO THAT THE NEXT MEETING.

>> THAT'S FINE. WE WANT TO GET THE APPLICATION FOR APPLICANTS UP ON THE WEB. THAT'S THE ONLY TIME SENSITIVE ITEM. IF YOU ARE OKAY WITH THE APPLICATION THAT WE DISTRIBUTED UP THERE, WE WILL --

>> THE APPLICATION MIRRORS EVERYTHING WE HAVE DISCUSSED TO THIS POINT. I MOVE WE APPROVE THE

APPLICATION OR ANNOUNCEMENT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE THE ANNOUNCEMENT.

SECONDED BY MR. ROBINSON. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION?

[02:20:02]

>> IS THERE? I'M A BIT CONFUSED BETWEEN THAT AND WHAT OUR NORMAL APPLICATION IS.

>> WE ADDED SEVERAL QUESTION SECTIONS SPECIFICALLY THE QUESTIONS YOU POSED AT THE LAST COUNCIL MEETING.

WE HAVE ALSO CREATED A WEB SECTION AND IT'S DRAFT AT THIS POINT BUT BASICALLY USES LANGUAGE WE DON'T HAVE GRAPHICS OR PICTURES BUT BASICALLY USES PICTURES YOU HAVE ALREADY ADOPTED TO ESSENTIALLY ANNOUNCE THIS OPPORTUNITY IS AVAILABLE AND STEER PEOPLE FOR INFORMATION TO THIS SITE.

AND MADAM PRESIDENT, I AM SORRY, I KNOW YOU WANTED IT TO

BE BRIEF. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THERE ARE THREE QUESTIONS, WHY YOU WANT TO BE ON THE COMMITTEE.

>> OKAY, THEN IS THIS FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO IS GOING TO

BE ON? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SIX

AND SIX. >> ALL RIGHT.

EXCELLENT. >> SO DOES THE WEBSITE INCLUDE THE EXPECTATIONS FOR THE COMMITTEE? IS THERE A LINK TO THAT DISCUSSION?

>> YEAH, THERE'S A BACKGROUND. THAT BACKGROUND IS WORDS FROM YOUR WORK. GO AHEAD.

>> THE QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE WEBSITE, IT'S REALLY LANGUAGE FROM COUNCILMEMBER SMITH'S WORK YOU HAVE SEEN, A LITTLE FROM THE R.F.P. AS WELL AS THE RESOLUTION ADOPTED, I WILL READ IT IN THAT AND YES IF YOU GO IN THE COMMUNITY VISIONING COMMITTEE SECTION YOU GET INTO THE JOB DESCRIPTION AND WHAT THE PURPOSE AND APPLICATION THAT HAS PREVIOUSLY BEEN

DISTRIBUTED TO YOU. >> WHAT'S THE DEADLINE WE ARE

GOING TO GIVE FOR REQUEST? >> I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT TONIGHT FOR THE DEADLINE.

IT DEPENDS HOW MUCH COUNCIL WILL GET INTO THAT TONIGHT UNLESS YOU WANT TO HOLD ALL THIS UNTIL YOUR NEXT MEETING.

>> WE DEFINITELY NEED TO HAVE THIS HASHED OUT IF THAT'S GOING

TO BE THE DEADLINE. >> THE TIME LINE I SUBMITTED TO YOU LAST WEEK WERE BASED ON A GENERAL IDEA THAT WE ARE KIND OF GOING TANDEM WITH THE R.F.P. GOING OUT TO CONSULTANTS.

KEEPING OUR PROCESS GOING SIMULTANEOUS TO THAT PROCESS CONCURRENTLY ENDING AT THE SAME TIME AND SAME PLACE, ESSENTIALLY. APRIL 4TH.

I THOUGHT THREE WEEKS. MY DARN TECHNOLOGY KEEPS CRASHING ON ME HERE SO I CAN'T PULL UP WHAT I SENT EVERYBODY.

BUT IF I REMEMBER, I THINK WE LAUNCHED IT FOR THREE WEEKS AND THEN CLOSED IT OUT. DOES THAT SOUND RIGHT?

>> WHEN WILL WE PROVIDE -- >> THIS WEEK.

>> YEAH, WE WILL ADD PICTURES AND GO LIVE AS SOON AS YOU

APPROVE THE APPLICATION. >> I THINK 4 4 IS ONLY TWO

WEEKS. >> SO 4-4 WOULD BE TWO WEEKS FROM WHAT I ASSUME THE WEBSITE LIVE DATE WOULD BE LATER THIS WEEK AND THEN WE WOULD REVIEW APPLICATIONS IN AT THAT POINT AT THE FOLLOWING COUNCIL MEETING, WHICH IS THE 8TH, I BELIEVE. THAT'S JUST A PRELIMINARY REVIEW. WE RECEIVE THEM, TAKE THEM WITH US, WE COME BACK AND MAKE DECISIONS AT THE FOLLOWING

MEETING. >> THAT ALIGNS MAKING DCISION

WHO TO FACILITATE. >> I THINK KNOWING OUR NORMAL PROCESSES FOR SELECTION OF COMMITTEES, WE WILL BE A THIS

IN MAY AS WELL. >> SO WHEN ARE OUR APPOINTMENTS? WHEN IN THIS TIME LINE WOULD THAT FIT?

>> THAT WOULD BE THE LAST MEETING IN MAY, CONSISTENT WITH

AROUND THE TIME WE -- >> SO THE FIRST TWO MEETINGS IN MAY ARE INTERVIEWS AND THE LAST ARE SELECTION.

>> AND THERE IS FEXIBILITY TO PUSH IT IN JUNE IF WE NEED TO.

>> I GUESS I WAS ASKING INDIVIDUALS EACH OF US ABLE TO

APPOINT SEPARATE FROM THIS. >> SOME POINT IN MAY, PERHAPS.

[02:25:17]

>> CAN'T PUSH THIS OUT, EXTEND THE DEADLINE OUT A WEEK OR EVEN TWO WEEKS. AND SEE WHERE IT LANDS.

>> WE HAVE COME IN AND MIGHT EXTEND TO ANOTHER.

IF WE GET FIVE APPLICATIONS, WHICH I DON'T THINK WILL BE THE

CASE. >> SOME OF US MAY TALK IT UP.

YOU WANT TO GO THREE WEEKS FROM THE DATE THE WEBSITE GOES LIVE?

>> I MAY WANT TO RECALL WE REQUESTED THE PROPOSALS TO BE DONE BY APRIL 10TH. YOU'LL HAVE TO WORK THROUGH HOW YOU WANT TO SCREEN THOSE INTERVIEW PROPOSERS AND ALL THAT IN THIS TIMEFRAME. CLOSING APPLICATIONS AT THE

EIGHTH. >> THE 11TH.

APPLICATION PROCESS OVER THE 11TH AND WE GET THE APPLICATIONS

ON THE 15TH. >> I DON'T WANT TO PUSH THAT ANY

LONGER. >> I WOULDN'T.

>> OK. >> ANY OTHER WAY IN GENERAL CONSENSUS ON THIS TIMELINE? OK.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE? >> THANK YOU FOR THAT.

WE'LL MOVE FORWARD. >> OK.

[10. Reports of Council Members]

ANYTHING ELSE? >> JUST A COUPLE QUICK THINGS.

MS. STEWART ATTENDED THE USU AIRPORT OPEN HOUSE.

AS YOU MAY RECALL, THE PERIOD IN WHICH ANYBODY CAN COMMENT TO THE F.A.A. CLOSES SOON. MARCH 26TH.

TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, E HAVEN'T DISH HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING THAT ANYBODY EXPRESSING DESIRE TO MAKE FORMAL COMMENTS TO THE F.A.A. AT THIS POINT. IF WE DESIRE TO DO THAT, WE NEED TO KNOW SOON. WE REALLY NEED TO DECIDE THAT TONIGHT, SINCE THERE'S NO ADDITIONAL MEETINGS.

SHOULD THE CITY WANT TO FORMALLY COMMENT, WE WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT TO THE PROJECT TEAM TO LEADERSHIP AS THEY MOVE THROUGH THE DECISION-MAKING PROGRESS.

ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THAT? I BELIEVE WE'VE SENT OUT SOME OF THE MATERIALS THAT WERE PART OF THAT OPEN HOUSE.

AS MS. STEWART MENTIONED, WE ISSUED LAST WEEK THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR CONSULTANTS THAT WENT TO A ROSTER WE DEVELOPED OF 35 FIRMS. IT WAS POSTED ON OUR WEBSITE.

IT WAS POSTED ON THE AMERICAN PLANNING ASSOCIATION'S BID SECTION AND ALREADY STARTING TO GET INQUIRIES.

WE EXPECT THEY'LL GET FORWARDED AND BE SENT ACROSS TO MANY INTERESTED PARTIES. IT WAS A GOOD EFFORT.

I WANT TO THANK MS. STEWART AND MR. BARN HEHART FOR HIS WORK IN IDENTIFYING PEOPLE WHO DO THIS WORK.

LASTLY, BEFORE WE REQUEST AN EXECUTIVE SESSION, INSTEAD OF NEGOTIATIONS, THERE ARE -- WE RECEIVED AND MS. STEWART CAN COVER THIS IN MORE DETAIL, BUT, WE RECEIVED OUR FIRST BATCH OF

[02:30:03]

SMALL CELL APPLICATIONS NOT TOO LONG AGO AND HAVE BEEN WORKING THROUGH THAT PROCESS AND ISSUED PERMITS.

THEY'RE ACTUALLY CONSTRUCTED THE FOOTAGE FOR THOSE ALREADY.

WE CAN TOUCH ON THE LOCATIONS AND SOME OF THE REQUIREMENTS THAT WE -- HOW THE REQUIREMENTS APPLIED TO THOSE LOCATIONS.

>> SO THE THREE LOCATIONS THAT WERE APPROVED, THIS IS A COMPANY CALLED AMERICAN CELL, WHO IS BUILDING THEM.

THEY ARE LOOKING TO CONSTRUCT ONE IN THE VICINITY OF NORTH STREET AND HIGH STREET. SO NEAR THE DAIRY QUEEN.

ONE, ALONG NORTH HIGHWAY STREET IN FRONT OF THE EXECUTIVE HOUSE, AND THEN ONE ON THE CURVE OF EAST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD NEAR THE ECONO LODGE. THEY WILL HAVE DECORATIVE POLES THAT WILL MATCH THE POLES ON HIGH STREET.

SHOULD YOU BE MORE SPECIFIC ABOUT PROXIMITY TO THE DAIRY QUEEN? DO YOU KNOW WHERE THEY'RE PROPOSING? I THINK IT'S RIGHT NEXT TO THE BUS SHELTER. ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE

STREET IN FRONT OF THE SPEEDWAY. >> THE OPPOSITE SIDE FROM THE MARATHON? IT'S ON THE MARATHON SIDE?

>> DID I SAY SPEEDWAY -- MARATHON.

>> THANK YOU. >> I FOUND WORK FOR THE AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE THAT WILL GO FROM THE FARMERS MARKET TO THE

MALL, RIGHT? >> RIGHT.

>> ANYTHING ELSE? >> NO, MA'AM.

>> MR. LINDSEY? >> NOTHING TONIGHT, MADAM

PRESIDENT. >> NOTHING, THANK YOU.

>> I HAVE NOTHING, THANK YOU. >> PASS.

>> A MEETING THAT THE THREE OF US THIS WEEK.

WE'LL DO AT THAT TIME A LATER DATE.

>> GO AHEAD. >> MR. ROBINSON?

>> MADAM PRESIDENT, NOTHING IN ADDITION TONIGHT.

THANK YOU. >> THEN, WE GO INTO EXECUTIVE
