OVER TO MR. GREESON. >> IT'S MY HONOR TO TURN THIS PRESENTATION OVER TO JIM ASKED THAT I SHARE THE FOLLOWING REMARKS HE PREPARED ON THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE INDIVIDUALS WE'RE HONORING TONIGHT. AS YOU KNOW FOR THE PAST 42 YEARS WORTHINGTON COUNCIL HAS RECOGNIZED THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF WORTHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WON STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN SPORT OR DISTINGUISHED THEMSELVES IN SCHOLARS.

THE COMMUNITY RECOGNITION OPPORTUNITY IS MOST SPECIAL THIS EVENING AS CITY COUNCIL AND OUR WORTHINGTON COMMUNITY COMMEND THE OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS OF WORTHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETE WHO WON STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN THE SPORT OF TRACK AND FIELD.

THESE SIGNIFICANT STATE CHAMPIONSHIP VICTORIES WERE IN THE BOYS 400 METER RACE AND GIRLS 3200 METER RELAY EVENT.

THREE WEEKS AGO T OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY A WORTHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL FRESHMAN WON THE HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE 400 METER RUN. AND A SECOND OHIO HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIP VICTORY WAS WON IN THE GIRLS 3200 METER RELAY EVENT. A COMPETITION THAT INVOLVES EACH OF FOUR ATHLETES RUNNING THE HALF MILE DISTANCE.

THIS INVOLVES TEAMS OF 280 OF THE HIGH SCHOOLS AND WIN CHAMPIONSHIP IN TRACK AND FIELD IN OHIO IS MOST CHALLENGING AND PLACES YOU AMONG THE TOP ATHLETES IN OUR NATION.

THE SPORT OF TRACK AND FIELD IS THE OLDEST AND MOST BASIC OF SPORT COMPETITIONS. SINCE OLYMPIC TIMES IT TESTED WHO IS FASTEST AND RUN EST OVER DISTANCE AND THROW AND JUMP THE FURTHEST AND WOULD CAN JUMP THE HIGHEST.

COULD JUMP THE HIGHEST. IT TESTS THE LIMITS OF PERSONAL

[00:05:04]

AND HUMAN CAPABILITY AND AMONG THE GREATEST TESTS OF ATHLETIC PORMS -- PERFORMANCE IS THE 400 METER RACE ONE OF THE MOST PHYSICALLY CHALLENGING OF ALL. IT'S BECOME AN ALL-OUT SPRINT FOR A QUARTER OF A MILE. IT INVOLVES A COMBINATION OF GREAT SPEED, GREAT STAMINA ND STRENGTH.

THAT IS WHY THIS YEAR'S STATE CHAMPIONSHIP VICTORY IN THE 400 METER WON BY JUSTIN BRAUN, A FRESHMAN FROM THOMAS WORTHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL WAS A MOST UNPRECEDENTED AND SPECIAL VICTORY IN THE SPORT OF TRACK AND FIELD.

WHILE SCHOOL GRADE LEVEL RECORDS ARE NOT MAINTAINED BY THE OHIO HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION, NO NE CAN RECALL A FRESHMAN EVER HAVING WON THE 400 METER CHAMPIONSHIP EVENT IT.

REQUIRES A SPECIAL COMBINATION OF ATHLETIC ABILITIES NOT FOUND IN YOUNG ATHLETES AT THE EARLY HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL.

OUR WORTHINGTON FRESHMAN'S TIME FOR THE 400 METER WAS 46.26 SECONDS AND IT BEEN FOUR YEAR SINCE A FRESHMAN ATHLETE EVEN MADE THE 400 FINALS LET ALONE WON.

JUSTIN BRAUN IS THE YOUNGEST ATHLETE IN WORTHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE IN AN INDIVIDUAL COMPETITIVE TRACK AND FIELD EVENT.

AND A MOST INTERESTING ASPECT OF HIS VICTORY IS THE FACT THAT HE IS THE GRANDSON OF MAYOR OF WORTHINGTON FOR THE 15 YEARS BETWEEN 1981 AND 1996.

MAYOR JIM WARMER HAS SERVED FOR3 YEARS PRIOR TO MAYOR BRAUN AND UPON MAYOR BRAUN'S DEATH CITY COUNCIL APPOINTED JIM WARMER TO COMPLETE HIS TERM. WE KNOW LARRY BRAUN WOULD BE MOST PROUD OF HIS GRANDSON'S GREAT OHIO HIGH SCHOOL STATE CHAMPIONSHIP ACCOMPLISHMENT. SO THIS EVENING, CITY COUNCIL RECOGNIZES AND COMMENDS THE GRANDSON OF LARRY BRAUN FOR HIS VICTORY AND EXPRESSING OUR CONFIDENCE THAT CITY COUNCIL AND WORTHINGTON COMMUNITY WILL HAVE MANY MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO RECOGNIZE AND PAY TRIBUTE TO THE BRAUN HERITAGE AND NAME.

WE ASK JUSTIN BRAURN TO COME FORWARD -- BRAUN TO COME FORWARD TO RECEIVE OUR CITY RESOLUTION WITH A FRAMED RECORD OF THE PUBLICITY OF HIS CHAMPIONSHIP OF WINS.

LET'S HAVE A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.

. >> OUR DEAR BELOVED JIM WORMER FOR 30 YEARS FRAMED THE PUBLIC PAVER SO I WANT TO PRESENT THIS TO YOU ON BEHALF OF THE COMMUNITY.

AND I HAVE FOR YOU A COPY OF THE RESOLUTION OUR COUNCIL JUST PASSED HONORING YOUR FANTASTIC ACCOMPLISHMENT.

HERE WITH JUSTIN, PLEASE STAND. GREAT JOB.

[5.B. Resolution No. 38-2019 Congrats to members of the Thomas Worthington High School State Champion 4 x 800 Relay Team (Part 2 of 2)]

[00:10:14]

NOW TO THE ADIES. A SECOND OHIO HIGH SCHOOL STATE TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIP WAS WON IN THE 3200 GIRLS' REPLAY TEAM. FOUR FEMALE ATHLETES RAN ONE HALF MILE TO WIN THIS OHIO STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.

IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE JUST TWO YEARS AGO THIS COUNCIL RECOGNIZED THE BOYS AS AN OHIO STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS AND THIS YEAR IT WAS THE LADIES TURN TO WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP.

WE CLEARLY HAVE GREAT DISTANCE RUNNERS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND WE ALL SEE THEM AROUND THE COMMUNITY.

THEY WORK SO HARD. THEY TRAINED SO HARD DURING THE FALL CROSS-COUNTRY SEASON AND THROUGHOUT THE FIRST MONTHS OF THE YEAR. THEY TRAINED.

THIS IS QUANTIFIABLE IN THE REPLAY SPORTS.

EACH FOUR ATHLETES HAD TO PUT IN A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MILEAGE AND TRAINING YEAR AROUND AND THIS PERSONAL COMMITMENT AND EFFORT PRODUCED AN OHIO STATE HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.

I TALKED TO THE GIRLS JUST BEFORE WE STARTED AND I HEARD THIS FROM ONE OF THE GIRL'S GRANDMOTHER AND THIS REPLAY TEAM THAT'D FASTEST RELAY TIME IN THE COUNTRY IN 2019 SO WE HAVE TO BREAK FOR APPLAUSE ON THAT. THREE ARE ELIGIBLE TO COME BACK AND LYDIA MILLER IS ALSO A 4.0 SCHOLAR ATHLETE.

MORGAN EDWARDS IS A SOPHOMORE WHO ALSO COMPETES IN CROSS COUNTRY AND ALSO MAINTAINS A 4.0 GRADE POINT AVERAGE.

CARINA DA POLEEON IS ALSO A SOPHOMORE AND PASSED THE BATON TO HER OLDER SISTER. SISTERS WHO CARRY A HISTORICALLY CONQUERING NAME OF NAPOLEON AND NOW STATE CHAMPIONS AND HAS TWO YEAR OF ELIGIBILITY REMAINING. GIA NAPOLEON WAS RECOGNIZED AS A SOPHOMORE WHEN SHE WON THE HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE 800 METER RACE. SHE WAS THEN THE YOUNGEST ATHLETE IN SCHOOL HISTORY TO WIN A COMPETITIVE TRACK AND FIELD HAVEN'T -- EVENT AND NOMINATED TO THE FEDERATION OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS LEADERSHIP SUMMIT. SHE WILL BE ATTENDING OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY THIS FALL WITH AN ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIP.

AND HER COACH THROUGHOUT HER HIGH SCHOOL YEAR, ANDY COX WHO CANNOT BE HERE TONIGHT BECAUSE HE SPENDS HIS SUMMERS IN FLORIDA AFTER SCHOOL BUT HAS SEEN A LOT OF ATHLETES COME THROUGH THE SCHOOL AND HE TOLD ME HE TALKED WITH ANDY EACH YEAR AND TALKS WITH HIM AND THIS YEAR HE TOLD MAYOR LORIMER E WORKED WITH MANY REAT ATHLETES BUT GIA NAPOLEON HAS BEEN THE GREATEST ATHLETE HE HAS EVER COACHED, UNQUOTE.

SHE HAS BEEN THE MOST HARD WORKING, SELF-DISCIPLINED AND ELITE ATHLETE IN HIS MANY YEARS OF COACHING AND TO FURTHER QUOTE HAS BEEN THE QUOTE, MOST HUMBLE, UNQUOTE.

THAT'S EADERSHIP. AND HE SUGGEST THE 2020 OLYMPIC GAMES IN JAPAN WAS ACHIEVABLE FOR HER AND NOW THAT GOAL SEEMS MORE OBTAINABLE. WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK THE 2019

[00:15:05]

NATIONAL RECORD-SETTING OHIO STATE HIGH SCHOOL 3200 METER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP RELAY TEAM TO COME FORWARD NOW TO RECEIVE THEIR WELL-DESERVED CITY COUNCIL RESOLUTIONS AN FRAMED RECORDS F THEIR STATE CHAMPIONSHIP PUBLICITY.

LET'S GIVE HOME TO A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.

>> BILL, WILL YOU STAND AGAIN AS A REPRESENTATIVE? OKAY. WELL, I DON'T TO SHOW FAVORITISM TO THE BRAUN FAMILY SO WILL ALL THE FAMILY MEMBERS OF THE GIRLS' NATIONAL RECORD CHAMPIONS PLEASE STAND.

SO CONCLUDE WE HAVE A COUPLE OTHER FOLKS HERE.

I SAW DR. BAUR IS HERE. THANK YOU FOR BEING PRESENT.

WE SAW PETE SCULLY NEXT TO DR. BAURS AND THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR JEN GOBEL. WELL, MAYOR LORIMER HAS A BIG TASK FOR ME AND HE DEFINITELY WANTED KNOW SHARE THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS. AS WELL AS BRINGING THE KEEPSAKE FOR CITY COUNCIL AND THE YOUNG ATHLETES AND JIM OPPOSED A QUESTION WHY WE'RE HERE WHAT'S THE FUTURE HOLD FOR THE GREAT YOUNG THLETES? AND JIM WANTED TO SHARE THERE WAS AN EVENT IN WORTHINGTON THAT PROVIDES INSIGHT AND PROMISE ON THAT INTERESTING AND IMPORTANT SUBJECT.

THE MEETING YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ABOUT WAS THE OHIO CLUB GIRLS TEAM I USED TO READ ABOUT AND COUNCIL FOUST MAY HAVE READ ABOUT AND WE READ WITH THE TEAM IN THE EARLY 1960S THE OHIO GIRLS TRACK CLUB AND THEY WERE WINNING LEFT AND RIGHT.

WHAT THEY HAD THIS PAST WEEKEND WAS THEIR 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR ORIGINAL 15 MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM LIKE WE HAD STATE CHAMPIONS HERE TONIGHT.

THEY'RE 75 YEARS OLD AND CAME TO WORTHINGTON FOR THEIR REUNION FROM CALIFORNIA ND WASHINGTON AND FLORIDA AND MONTANA AND SOUTH CAROLINA AND MANY FROM OHIO AND THERE WAS ONE HARVARD LAW SCHOOL STUDENTS AND THEY EXPRESSED AGREEMENT ON ONE SUBJECT AND THAT IS THEIR OPPORTUNITY AS ATHLETES IN THEIR TEENAGE YEARS TO COMPETE AND EXPRESS THEMSELVES AS YOUNG ATHLETES MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES.

THEY LEARNED THE MOST IMPORTANT LIFE LESSON THAT SPORTS TEACHES IS A WE GET BACK FROM ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE IN PROPORTION TO

[00:20:03]

WHAT WE DID. THE HARDER YOU WORK, THE MORE YOU TRAIN, THE MORE YOU SUCCEED. THAT LIFE LESSON IS EXPRESSED IN THE BIOGRAPHIES OF THE WOMEN WHO GATHERED FOR THE REUNION AND MAYOR LORIMER BROUGHT THE PROGRAMS AND WE'LL DISTRIBUTE THEM TO OUR HONOREES AND THERE'LL BE COPIES FOR COUNCIL AND HOPES YOU'LL FIND THEIR STORIES INSIGHTFUL AND MOTIVATING AND THE STORIES OF THIS WOMEN HOLDS TRUE.

WITH THAT I THANK CITY COUNCIL TO BE HERE ON BEHALF OF JIM LORIMER AND A FINAL ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THE YOUNG ATHLETES.

>> WELL DONE, MAYOR HOLMES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE GIRLS TRACK TEAM YOU TALKED ABOUT STARTED AND THEY GOT INTO NATIONAL WHICH BEING -- CHAMPIONS AND JIM LORIMER SPENT TIME HELPING THEM TRAIN. AS A RESULT OF HIS ACHIEVEMENTS HE ENDED UP ON THE UNITED STATES OLYMPIC COMMITTEE AND WEDGE ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER AND AS A RESULT IS ONE OF THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR TITLE 9 AND SO ALL ATHLETES HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO COMPETE IN SPORTS AND MAKE THE LIFE-CHANGING DECISION SPORTS CAN BRING. WE'RE ALL VERY PROUD OF YOU.

VERY PROUD OF ALL OF YOU AND MAYOR BRLORIMER WANTED TO CONGRATULATE YOU AND TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU HAD DONE FOR ALL SPORTS IN THE COUNTRY. DOES ANYONE ELSE WANT TO ADD ANYTHING? CONGRATULATIONS AND WHAT WE'LL DO, YOU'RE WELCOME TO STAY FOR THE WHOLE MEETING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NEW BUSINESS RESOLUTION TO BE REMOVED FROM THE TABLE SECOND BY MR. MYERS.

ALL OFFICER FAVOR OF REMOVING THE RESOLUTION SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN.

SECOND, IN THE PACKET THERE WAS AN AMENDED VERSION AND WHAT I'M LOOKING THROUGH IS WE'LL DISCUSS THE AMENDMENTS TO THE RESOLUTION THEN DISCUSS AMENDMENTS TO THE PLAN AND THEN DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT TO PASS THE AMENDED RESOLUTION AND THE PLAN OR NOT OR WHAT WE WANT TO DID. THAT'S HOW WE'LL WORKSOLUTION W TAKE LESS TIME AND THEN THE PLAN.

DO YOU WANT TO OVER THE CHANGES YOU RECOMMENDED?

>> AS A SAID AT THE LAST MEETING I GENERALLY APPROVED OF THE PLAN BUT I WANTED TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT WE WERE CLEAR ON GUIDANCE AND NOT MANDATORY. I WANT TO GO AHEAD AND MAKE

[00:30:04]

CHANGES TO THE RESOLUTION. I DID THAT, I BELIEVE.

DID YOU WORDSMITH IT? THE LANGUAGE SOUNDS BETTER THAN WHAT I ORIGINALLY RECOMMENDED. AND WHEN WE GO TO DESIGN AND DISCUSS FUTURE TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS.

THIS A PLAN. WITH THAT I'M COMFORTABLE WITH THE PLAN IF WE ADOPT THIS RESOLUTION BECAUSE I THINK IT ADEQUATELY SETS FORTH OUR POLICY AND GOALS IN ATTEMPTING TO ADOPT IT SUGGESTING THEY BE BUILT AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE ROADS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION AND WOULD NOT NECESSARILY LEND THEMSELVES TO ALL FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION AND THAT SHOULD BE A DECISION OF THIS AND FUTURE COUNCILS.

WITH THE PLAN AS AVAILABLE TO USE.

I HOPE I EXPRESSED THAT IN THE RESOLUTION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS REGARDING THE AMENDMENTS IN OUR PACKET TO THE RESOLUTION?

>> I LIKE THE AMENDMENTS. THEY ACCOMPLISH WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. WHAT'S TOUGH FOR ME IS TO SEPARATE THE AMENDMENT FROM THE PLAN.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'RE NOT ADOPTING THE RESOLUTION.

WE'RE ONLY DISCUSSING THIS. >> LET ME ADDRESS THAT.

HERE'S THE WAY I LOOK AT THAT. A PLAN.

I HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE HARD WORK ON BEHALF OF THE COMMITTEE.

WHEN WE GO BACK 10 YEARS FROM NOW AND SAY WHAT DID COUNCIL DECIDE, LOOK AT THE RESOLUTION. AS WE SAY THIS IS THE JOURNAL.

THE PLAN THEN BECOMES IS WHAT IS SPEAKING FOR COUNCIL.

THAT'S MY THOUGHT. THIS IS WHAT'S GOING IN THE JOURNAL OF OUR COUNCIL RECORD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO YOU MOVE TO MAKE THE AMENDMENT TO THE RESOLUTION AS WRITTEN AND INCLUDED IN OUR PACKETS? ARE YOU MOVING TO AMEND THE RESOLUTION TO INCLUDE THE

AMENDMENTS? >> SURE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THERE A SECOND TO ACCEPTING THE

AMENDMENTS? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I'LL

SECOND. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE AMENDMENTS TO THE RESOLUTION? IF NO, ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

AND I'LL TURN IT OVER TO MR. GREESON TO DISCUSS THE PLAN.

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

YOU HEARD A PRESENTATION FROM THE CITY CONSULTANT AND YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU WERE PRESENTED AT THAT TIME THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN PLAN DOCUMENT. THAT PLAN AND THE POLICY WERE DEVELOPED IN TANDEM WITH EXTENSIVE PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT.

THE PLAN OMES TO YOU HAVING THE INPUT OF A STEERING IN THE AND COMES AS A PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY BOARD.

DURING THE IALOGUE THE PLAN WAS TABLED.

THIS WAS CONSENT THE RESOLUTION NEEDED TO BE AMENDED AND WE APPRECIATE MR. MYERS' EFFORT AND COUNCIL MEMBERS WANTED TIME TO REVI REVIEW THE PLAN TO ABSORB IT AND

[00:35:02]

TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT.

AND THERE'S A MORE DETAILED WRITING MITT -- SUBMITTED TO YOU LATER TODAY. I THINK YOU HAVE SEVERAL OPTIONS BEFORE YOU JUST REALLY ANY TIME A RECOMMENDATION IS BEFORE YOU FROM THE ADVISORY BOARD, ONE IS YOU CAN DISCUSS THE PLAN IF YOU HAVE SUBSTANTIVE ISSUES OR REQUIRE MORE CONSIDERATION YOU CAN ALWAYS REFER IT BACK TO THE BOARD FOR FURTHER INSUT AND DEBATE AND RECOMMENDATIONS. YOU CAN DISCUSS THE PLAN BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING. DISCUSS THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER ROBINSON OR OTHERS YOU MAY ARRIVE AT, ADOPT THE PLAN AS IS OR AS AMENDED THIS EVENING.

OR DISCUSS THE PLANNED AMENDMENTS AND AMENDMENTS YOU MAY MAKE AND COME UP TO TABLE IT IF YOU WANT FURTHER REVIEW AND DISCUSSION AT A SUBSEQUENT MEETING.

THOSE ARE THE BROAD OPTIONS. YOU'VE ALREADY REMOVED THE RESOLUTION FROM THE TABLE AND AMENDED IT.

THIS EVENING IF YOU CHOOSE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IT THIS EVENING, MADAME PRESIDENT, AND YOU CHOOSE TO AMEND IT YOU WOULD VOTE TO AMEND IT AND VOTE ON THE RESOLUTION ON THE AMENDED PLAN SHOULD IT BE AMENDED. WE REALLY AS A STAFF ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOUR CONVERSATION. WE'D BE GLAD TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IN THE AUDIENCE YOU ALSO HAVE THE HAIR OR BOARD KELLY WHALEN, THE VICE CHAIR MICHAEL BATES AND MEMBER ENHORTEN AND WE APPRECIATE THEIR WORK AND THEY WERE MEETING PRIOR TO THIS MEETING AND PUTTING TIME INTO THIS AND OTHER IMPORTANT TOPICS. BEFORE CLOSE MY REMARKS I WANT TO ASK MR. HURLEY IF HE HAS ANYTHING TO ADD AND GIVE THEM

THE PPORTUNITY TO DO SO. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON.

I'M AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS. I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COUNCILMEMBERS, HOW DO YOU WANT TO PROCEED? MR. ROBINSON, DO YOU HAVE MATERIALS AND WANT TO DISCUSS YOUR THOUGHTS.

>> D. ROBINSON: I THINK A ROBUST DISCUSSION WOULD BE VERY DESIRABLE. MY THOUGHTS ARE SUCH THE RESOLUTION IS FROM THE COUNCIL BUT FOR PRACTICAL PURPOSES THEY TAKE A LIFE OF THEIR OWN AND IT LASTS MANY YEARS.

PRIOR TO SERVING I REFERENCED THE PLAN.

I NEVER LOOKED AT THE RESOLUTION.

SO I DID THINK THE LANGUAGE OF THE PLANS THEMSELVES IS KEY NOT ONLY THAT OF THE RESOLUTION. THE LANGUAGE AND CONCEPT CONTAINED IN THE BIKE AND PED MASTER PLAN PERTAIN TO WHAT I WOULD DESCRIBE AS SORT OF EVERY DAY ISSUES AND CONCEPTS.

THEY'RE MOSTLY WHAT I WOULD DESCRIBE AS ADDITIVE FREE -- FEATURES AND ENHANCEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE I FEEL IS NOT AND MIXED ABILITY.SSED ON SAFET- BUT THERE ARE OTHER PORTIONS THAT VENTURE INTO WHAT I WOULD CALL VALUE REACHING CONSEQUENCES FOR WHAT WE MIGHT DO AND UGHT TO DO.

[00:40:02]

IT'S THOSE PASSAGES I'VE ATTEMPTED TO IDENTIFY AND SUGGEST WHAT I VIEW ARE ORE BOUND EXPRESSIONS.

SOME OF THE VALUE PROPOSITIONS ABOUT HOW WE OUGHT TO LIVE AS A COMMUNITY I DON'T BELIEVE HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED AND CONSIDERED A ADEQUATELY BY THE PUBLIC UCH LESS THE COUNCIL AS O THE AND PRIOR TO MORE ROBUST CONVERSATION AND IMPLICATIONS OF THE CONCEPTS WE PUT NTO THE LANGUAGE OF THE PLAN ITSELF QUALIFICATIONS AS I'VE OUTLINED IN MY TEXT.

THANK YOU. >> THE COMMITTEE HAS BEEN WORK HARD ON THIS PLAN. WE ACTUALLY AS COUNCIL DID A REPORT BACK IN 2014 THAT HAS SIMILAR INFORMATION IN IT AND THEN THE THEN COMMITTEE DECIDED THEY WANTED TO HAVE A BETTER PLAN TO HELP INFORM DECISIONS AND THE PROCESS OF IMPROVEMENTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND WE SEE AS A COUNCIL AGREED AND REACHED OUT TO A NATIONALLY KNOWN CONSULTANT WELL REGARDED AS ONE OF THE TOP CONSULTANTS IN BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCOMMODATIONS TO HELP US WITH THIS PLAN. I THINK THAT WE'RE LOOKING TO PROTECT THOSE MOST VULNERABLE, TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD TO DRIVE OR TOO POOR TO DRIVE. THEY CAN'T AFFORD A CAR AND THOSE NOT WELL ENOUGH TO DRIVE. I KNOW MYSELF INCLUDED AND MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY THAT ALL FIT THOSE STANDARDS FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO USE ROADWAYS AND LOOKING FOR EQUITY FOR A BALANCE. THIS IS JUST A GUIDELINE TO BALANCE OUT WHAT WE CAN DO WITHIN THE CITY.

I HINK THAT IT'S A GOOD PLAN THAT WITH THE AMENDMENTS WE HAVE ALREADY AGREED UPON HIS NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED BUT NOT FOLLOWED BY ANY MEANS IS A GOOD COMPROMISE WHERE WE'RE AT.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I AGREE WITH COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY.

THIS HASN'T COME UP IN A VACUUM. THIS HAS BEEN DISCUSSED FOR YEARS. ESPECIALLY WITH THE CREATION OF A BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY BOARD THAT EXPRESSES THE IMPORTANCE COUNCIL HAS GIVEN THIS ISSUE AND THE VALUES PURSUING THIS AND I AGREE WITH THE VALUES.

I DON'T AGREE WITH THE CHANGES. I DON'T THINK THAT THE PLAN STATES THAT AUTOMOBILES ARE ONEROUS WHICH IS A COMMENT MR. ROBINSON MADE IN HIS NOTES WE GOT.

THE PLAN OFFERS GUIDANCE AND RESOURCES TO CONSIDER IN THE COMMUNITY. INCREASING WALKING AND WEEKING -- WALKING OPTIONS AND IMPROVING PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH, REDUCING VEHICLE EMISSION AND A MORE POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND IMPROVING TRANSPORTATION SAFETY AND A KEY COMPONENT OF AN AGE FRIENDLY COMMUNITY SO I SUPPORT IT AND SUPPORT IT AS WRITTEN. WE HAD MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO THE NATIONALLY KNOWN CONSULTANT TOOK THAT DATA AND COMPLIED THE DATA THEY GOT FROM FEEDBACK FROM THE COMMUNITY AND US AND PRESENTED BACK TO US WHAT THEY HEARD.

I THINK THE DATA SPEAKS. I WOULD IKE TO VOTE ON IT AS AND I'M COMFORTABLE WITH IT. THOSE WHERE THE THOUGHTS.ISAND .

[00:45:03]

THOSE WHERE THE THOUGHTS.IS AND I'M COMFORTABLE WITH IT.

THOSE WHERE THE THOUGHTS. >> MAY I RESPOND? I THINK IT'S MORE. LET ME CITE SPECIFIC PASSAGES.

ON PAGE 6 IT SAYS WALKING AND BIKING IS VIABLE BUT AS PREFERRED. PREFERRED IS NOT EQUITY.

PAGE 7 AFTER THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF BUILDING CITIES IN HEALTHY WAYS E LOST OUR WAY. MY PARENTS MOVED INTO A SUBURB IN ARLINGTON AND IT WAS A PATH FREEDOM.

THEY VERY MUCH APPRECIATED BEING ABLE TO MOVE OUT OF THE CROWDED AREA IN NEW YORK. I DON'T PASS JUDGMENT ON THEM AS HAVING A LOT OF BEARING AND I THINK IF YOU READ THIS PARAGRAPH I DON'T VIEW THE FOLKS THAT CREATED AND LAID OUT WORTHINGTON HISTORICALLY AS HAVING MADE MISTAKES.

VALUES ARE DIFFERENT NOW BUT WE NEED TO PROVIDE THAT SOCIAL HISTORICAL CRITIQUE WHICH HAS BROAD IMPLICATIONS TO HOW TO STRUCTURE MOVING FORWARD. PAGE 7, GUIDANCE AND LAYS OUT SPECIFIC CATEGORY AND AUTHORITY FOR IT MEANING OUR DEVELOPMENT PROPOSALS NEED TO MEET THE CRITERIA OF THE PLAN. PAGE 7 THE ONLY CONSTRAINT LI LISTED IS FUNDING.

I DOESN'T ADDRESS INHERENT CONSTRAINTS IN EMPLOYEEING.

IN THE PLAN IS THE IDEA THE STREETS OUGHT TO BE NARROWED TO MAKE ROOM FOR A BIKE LANE. IF YOU LIVE ON THE STREET YOU GET 18-WHEELERS. IS IT A GOOD IDEA TO REDUCE THE WIDTH OF THE LANES FROM 10 TO 12 FEET? THERE'S PROBLEMS CONTENT WISE. IF WE DON'T AMEND THE LANGUAGE THE COUNCIL WILL BE ENDORSING A VISION FOR OUR INFRASTRUCTURE THAT I CERTAINLY DO NOT CONDONE OR SUPPORT.

HOW DO YOU SUBSTANTIATE THOSE PARTICULAR PASSAGES?

ARE YOU COMFORTABLE WITH THEM? >> WALKING IS THE ULTIMATE FORM OF EQUITY. I THINK WALKING IS THE ULTIMATE FORM OF EQUITY. I THINK OUR FOUNDING FATHERS LAID OUT THE HISTORICAL WORTHINGTON AROUND HUMAN SCALE AROUND WALKING AND THEN MOVING ON TO MOMENT. I DO THINK FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS SOCIETY HAS BEEN HUMAN SCALE AND NOT AUTO OIENTED.

I THINK THIS MAKES PLENTY OF REFERENCES TO GUIDELINES.

THESE ARE GUIDELINES AND OPPORTUNITIES WE CAN MAKE UP IMPROVEMENTS TO WALKING AND CYCLING.

NOT THAT WE HAVE TO BUT THEY'RE PRESENTING OPPORTUNITIES FOR A BALANCE OF OPTIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION FOR EQUITY

THROUGHOUT OUR COMMUNITY. >> IF YOU'LL PERMIT ME I HAVE A LITTLE CONTEXT AND MS. DOROTHY WAS THERE AT THE PRE-ADVISORY COMMITTEE AS WAS AND I THINK THE INTENT FROM THAT POINT FIVE AND SIX YEARS AGO LOBBYING THE COMMITTEE AND MAYBE YOU'RE REGRETTING THAT AT THIS POINT, I THINK THE CONVERSATIONS BACK THEN WERE THIS COMMITTEE COULD COME UP WITH A LOT LIKE THIS.

[00:50:05]

VERY CLOSE TO WHAT THIS IS I THINK.

I THINK THE CONSULTANT DID A TREMENDOUS JOB, GREAT JOB, GUIDING AND ACILITATING THE COMMITTEE.

SOME THEMES MAY BE MORE WHITE-WASHED BECAUSE THE COMMITTEE ITSELF, THE INTENT IN SUBSEQUENT YEARS, I BELIEVE, WERE TO LOOK AT PROJECTS SPECIFICALLY AS UNIQUE CAPITAL PROJECTS. AND NOT PUT A BLANKET WHITE-WASHED STATEMENT OVER EVERYTHING SAYING THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE THIS WAY, PERIOD. AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT THE PLAN IS DOING A LITTLE BIT IN THE WORDING.

MAYBE NOT IN THE INTENT BUT IN THE WORDING A LITTLE BIT AS MR. ROBINSON SAID. I CAN AGREE WITH WHAT HE'S SUGGESTING BECAUSE IT SOFTEN THE WORDING A LITTLE BIT BACK TO THE INTENT OF LOOKING AT THE UNIQUENESS OF THE PROJECT AND SAYING WE NEED TO LOOK AT THIS UNIQUE PROJECT AND DIG DEEPER IN THE PROJECT AS ONE PROJECT. THERE'S A LITTLE CONTEXT AND THOUGHT SHINING SOME LIGHT ON HOPEFULLY A ROBUST CONVERSATION.

>> I WANT TO SET THIS ASIDE FOR THE MOMENT AND TALK ABOUT THIS AT A GOVERNANCE LEVEL. WORTHINGTON IS A PLANNED COMMUNITY A TOWNSHIP GRID PLANNED COMMUNITY.

IF MEMORY SERVES CORRECTLY, AND I'M SURE IF I'M WRONG SOMEONE WILL CORRECT ME, THE VILLAGE GREEN WAS ORIGINAL CHURCH GROUNDS. NOBODY WOULD WANT TO HAVE TO DODGE COW PADDIES BUT DO WE RID THE PLAN OR DO WE ADHERE TO THE ADOPTION OF COUNCIL TO CODE? THE CODE IS WHAT COUNCIL ADOPTED. THE CODE CONTROLS.

WE'RE A COMMUNITY THAT TAKES PLANNING SERIOUSLY.

EVERY CONSULTANT WE TALKED TO COMPLEMENTED US ON THE FACT WE PLAN BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO BE SURPRISED.

WE WANT TO KNOW WHERE WE'RE GOING TO GO.

I THINK IF WE WANT TO MAKE THE CHANGES, THIS IS WE HAVE TO

DEFEAT THE RESOLUTION. >> MR. MYERS I SENT YOU NOTE 3

LAST WEEK. >> MY POINT IS COUNCIL MERGE PLANNING AND LEGISLATION AND THEY'RE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS. SOME THINGS YOU POINT OUT I DON'T DISAGREE WITH. I DO LATENT STATEMENT BUT IT'S DICTA. THE COMMITTEE WORKED HARD FOR A YEAR AND CAME UP WITH THIS LANGUAGE.

I DON'T WANT TO TELL THEM NO, WE'RE NOT GOING ADOPT IT BECAUSE THE LANGUAGE DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING TO ME.

IT'S NOT WHAT I'M ADOPTING. I'LL ADOPT IT WHEN I GO TO REPAVE THE ROAD OR EAST VON GRANVILLE ROAD AND REALIZE WE WON'T PUT BOULEVARDS IN THE MIDDLE OF 160.

IT'S NOT GOING HAPPEN. I JUST THINK WE'RE LOOKING AT PLANNING AND LEGISLATION AND THE LEGISLATION I THINK IS PRETTY

CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE INTEND. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

MR. FOUST. >> D. FOUST: FIRST, THERE'S A LOT OF GREAT VALUABLE MATERIAL IN THIS THE CROSSING LOCATIONS AND THE CONCEPTS ARE WELL BASED. WHERE I PAUSE IS THE INCLUSION

[00:55:05]

OF COMPLETE STREETS WITHIN THE POLICY AS ADOPTIVE WHOLESALE AS WELL. NATIONAL CONSULTANTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS ASIDE I DON'T KNOW IT COMPRISES THE COMPONENTS I THINK ARE IMPORTANT. WHEN I READ PHRASES LIKE OVERTIME THERE'S OPPORTUNITIES TO RIGHT SIZE STREETS BY PUTTING STREETS ON A ROAD DIET NARROWING OR ELIMINATING TRAVEL LANES FROM FOUR OR THREE OR THREE TO TWO, THERE ARE PLACES WHERE THAT WORKS. IT WAS DONE ON NORTH 4TH WITH SOME SUCCESS BUT IF YOU ASK SOMEBODY TRYING TO GET OUT OF DOWNTOWN THEY'LL TELL YOU IT'S BEEN PRETTY MUCH DOWNTOWN YOU'RE BACK USING THE INTERSTATES AND MAYBE THAT'S AS IT SHOULD BE.

THE SAME CONCEPT WAS APPLIED ON INDIAN OLA SOUTH OF MORRIS ROAD.

IT'S NOW A ONE-LANE STREET AND FOR AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC IT'S PRETTY UNFRIENDLY. IF THE COMPLETE STREETS WEREN'T IN HERE LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL PERHAPS I'D FEEL DIFFERENTLY BUT IT SEEMS TO ME LIKE WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY HERE WHILE MR. MYERS I APPRECIATE THE DISTINCTION YOUR TRYING TO MAKE I THINK TO MR. ROBINSON'S COMMENT, THE PLAN HAS BEEN IN COUNCIL'S FACES MORE THAN ONCE IN THE LAST COUPLE YEARS.

THE COMP PLAN ARE WHAT PEOPLE LOOK AT NOT THE RESOLUTION IT ADOPTED. NOW, I GATHER YOU'LL WANT TO

RESPOND TO THAT? >> VERY MUCH SO.

TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ARGUING BECAUSE PEOPLE THROW THE COMP PLAN UP WHICH IS NOT A PLAN OF COUNCIL. AN ADOPTIVE COMP PLAN BUT IT'S NOT TO CODE. I'VE TRIED THIS ARGUMENT FOR SO

MANY YEARS THAT ANYWAY. >> HERE'S WHAT I SEE AS AN OPPORTUNITY. THE SAME THING COULD APPLY HERE.

AND THAT'S MY CONCERN. I THINK YOU KIND OF MADE MY POINT ACTUALLY FOR ME. WHAT I'M STRUGGLING WITH IS THING LIKE THE CONCEPT OF BIKE BEL BOULEVARDS AND IT'S ALL NICELY PACKAGED AND HE CONCEPT OF COMPLETE STREETS. WELL, WHO DOESN'T WANT A COMPLETE STREET? THE ALTERNATIVE IS AN INCOMPLETE STREET AND WHO WOULD WANT AN INCOMPLETE STREET.

THE NAMING IS A LITTLE INSIDIOUS LIKE BICYCLE BOULEVARD.

WHAT A GLORIOUS NAME, WELL, CAR REDUCTION IS ANOTHER WAY OF NAMING BICYCLE BOULEVARDS. I'M NOT SAYING IT'S A GOOD OR BAD THING BUT NOT ADEQUATELY REPRESENTED.

MY CONCERN IS MUCH LIKE THE COMP PLAN, PEOPLE WON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE. AND SO HEAVEN YOU INCLUDE THINGS -- AND SO WHEN YOU INCLUDE THINGS LIKE THE BIKING PROPOSAL AND IT'S UNDER THE HEADING OF COMPLETE STREETS THERE'S SEVERAL STREETS IDENTIFIED FOR BICYCLE BOULEVARDS AND TRAFFIC CALMING. AND SO TO ME, IMPLEMENTING THOSE THINGS, IF WE WERE TO ON WEST NEW ENGLAND, ON EVENING, ON HIGH GATE, ON KAREN/HIGHLAND, ALL THOSE RUN THE POTENTIAL OF DRAWING GREAT IRE FROM HE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED US.

SO WHAT I'D LIKE TO SUGGEST HERE IS THAT BEFORE WE MOVE FORWARD WITH SNAG -- SOMETHING THAT ADOPTS COMPLETE STREETS THE BIKE AND PED PLAN BECOMES A TROJAN FOR THE BIKE AND PED STREETS, BEFORE WE DO THAT WE'RE STANDING AT THE THRESHOLD OF A VISIONING EXERCISE. OVER NEXT 9 TO 12 MONTHS WE'LL GET A CHANCE TO FLOAT A BUNCH OF IDEAS, OR THE CONSULTANTS WILL, BY WHAT PEOPLE THINK. THE CHANCE TO FIND OUT WITHIN A FUNCTION OF THAT HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT SOME OF THE CONCEPTS? IS 20 MILES AN HOUR AS RECOMMENDED IN WHAT 14,000 PEOPLE REFER AS REPLACING 25 MILES AN HOUR THROUGH THE STREETS OF WORTHINGTON BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT'S IN HERE.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE US HOLD OFF HAVE A LITTLE MORE DISCUSSION AND EITHER MODIFY THE PLAN OR JUST DELAY UNTIL WE KNOW WHAT THE PEOPLE THINK AND NOT THE SEVEN OF US SITTING UP HERE

[01:00:05]

MAKING THAT DECISION. >> WE'VE HAD SIGNIFICANT PUBLIC OUTREACH AND INPUT FOR THIS FROM THE START IN 2012 TO THE FINALIZED REPORT AND HE COMMITTEE AS CONSISTENTLY OUTREACHED TO THE PUBLIC, ENGAGED AND GOTTEN THEIR SUPPORT FOR MAKING IMPROVEMENTS, BALANCING OUT THE EQUITY IN OUR PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY. THE POLICY IS A COMPLETE POLICY TO MAKING IT SAFER AND MAKE SURE WE HAVE SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL WITHOUT COMPLETE STREETS IT'S ERY HARD FOR US TO EVEN LOOK AT EACH INTERSECTION WITHOUT HAVING COMPLETE STREET POLICY. IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE ENOUGH MONEY. YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THE STREET AND SEE IF IT'S FEASIBLE OR NOT AND IF IT'S NOT WE CAN SAY IT'S NOT. A.R.P. ALSO EMPHASIZING PLANNING WITH A COMPLETE STREET POLICY IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIVEABILITY AND AGING PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY. WE HAVE A LOT IN THAT REGARD.

I THINK THE POLICIES GO HAND IN HAND AND I THINK IT REQUIRES YOU TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT METHODS. ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE 20-MILE PER HOUR IS ASKED FOR IS BECAUSE IF YOU GET HIT AND ARE A PERSON ON A BIKE OR WALKING, IF YOU GET HIT BY A VEHICLE GOING 20 MILES AN HOUR YOU HAVE A10% CHANCE OF DYING AND IF YOU GET HIT AT 40 MILES AN HOUR YOU HAVE A 90% CHANCE OF DYING.

THERE'S A REASON WHY THE ZONES IS 20 MILES AN HOUR.

THERE'S REASON WHY THERE IS A GUIDELINE CONSIDERATION FOR YOU TO LOOK INTO HAVING RESIDENTIAL STREETS WHERE YOU THINK YOU'LL HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE AROUND TO HAVE VEHICLES MOVE SLOWER BUT DOES NOT SAY YOU HAVE TO. WHAT IT DOES SAY IS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER AND WASH IT DOWN TOO MUCH WILL PEOPLE CONSIDER CHANGING ANYTHING? WE'VE HAD POLICY DOCUMENTS FOR DECADE ABOUT BIKE AND PLANNING. THE LAST PLAN BEFORE 2005 HAD BIKE AND PED AND BEFORE THERE WAS A DIFFERENT GUIDELINE NO ONE LOOKED AT. IF WE TAKE ANY TEETH TO LOOK AT THIS, THERE'S NO REASON WHY WE LOOK AT MAKING IMPROVEMENTS OR LOOK AT SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL OR IMPLEMENT SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL.

ALSO WHEN WE LOOK AT ATTRIBUTABLE FUNDING HAVE THOSE STREETS GIVES US EXTRA POINTS TO POTENTIALLY WIN GRANTS TO IMPLEMENT THIS AND THIS GIVES US MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO APPLY FOR GRANTS BUT IT'S ALL BASED ON WHAT THE FEES ACT -- FEASIBILITY IS AND WHAT COUNCIL ALLOWS IN THE PURSE STRINGS.

>> I ATTEMPTED IN MY SUGGESTIONS TO BE RESPECTFUL AND MODERATE.

I DIDN'T DISPARAGE R CRITICIZE. I WAS VERY INTENTIONAL IN TRYING TO REMAIN TRUE TO THE SPIRIT OF CONSIDERING THE CONTENTS OF THE STUDIES. I URGE YOU TO LOOK IT OVER AND TELL ME WHAT IN IT IS EXCESSIVE OR INAPPROPRIATE OR MISCALCULATING. I THINK THE STATEMENTS ARE VERY REASONABLE BECAUSE I THINK MOST OF THE ELEMENTS OF THE PLAN ARE GOOD. I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYONE UP HERE IN THE COMMUNITY WOULD BE AGAINST SAFE PASSAGE FOR OUR STUDENTS TO SCHOOL. SIDEWALKS.

OF COURSE MOST PEOPLE SUPPORT PUTTING THEM WHERE NEIGHBORS WANT THEM. THE TERM COMPLETE STREETS IS SUCH A BROAD CONCEPT INVOLVING EVERYTHING FROM SIDEWALKS TO SETBACKS TO SPEED LIMITS TO NARROWING OF LANES.

I SPOKE ABOUT THIS WITH LORRAINE, MY WIFE AND SHE

[01:05:02]

POINTED OUT, DAVID, THERE'S A LOT OF PARENTS THAT HAVE A CAR FULL OF KIDS THEY CAN'T WALK OR BICYCLE EASILY.

THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT NEED TO DRIVE, SENIORS, MANY OF THEM ARE NOT ABLE TO WALK OR BICYCLE.

WOULD ENIORS WANT O DRIVE DOWN A ROAD WITH IMPEDIMENTS WHERE THEY HAVE TO WEAVE IN AND OUT OR DROVE DOWN MORE NARROW STREETS? THERE'S PROS AND CONS TO THESE ISSUES.

I LANGUAGE I HAVE SUBMITTED IS QUITE MODERATE AND I URGE IT'S

INCLUSION IN THE PLAN. >> I'M THINKING THERE'S TWO WAYS OF LOOKING AT THIS. ONE, WE WANT TO LOOK AT THE LANGUAGE AND SEE IF WE AGREE WITH THE CHANGES TO MOVE SOME FORWARD IN THE SPIRIT OF COMPROMISE AND GET THIS PLAN APPROVED TONIGHT OR DO WE WANT TO SEND IT BACK WITH COMMENTS TO THE COMMITTEE OR VOTE ON IT AS IS? THOSE ARE THREE POSSIBLE PROCEDURES IN TRYING TO FIGURE

OUT WHICH PROCEDURE. >> MADAME PRESIDENT, I'D SUPPORT SENDING IT BACK TO THE COMMITTEE.

I SPOKE WITH A COMMITTEE MEMBER END OF THE LAST WEEK AND FRANKLY ACKNOWLEDGE THE STREET PROGRAMS WASN'T CLEAR WHAT IT WENT AND DID NOT WANT TO BECOME ARGUMENTIVE IN THE COMMITTEE.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE WHETHER THE COMMITTEE WOULD VIEW MY SUGGESTED HEEDITS UNACCEPTABLE TRUE TO THE SPIRIT OF WHAT THEY'RE TRYING TO DO. I OPE THEY WOULD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'LL SEE IF A MEMBER OF THE COMMITTEE WANTS TO SAY SOMETHING SINCE YOU'VE BEEN PATIENTLY WAITING.

>> I'M HAVING A HARD TIME SEPARATING OUT THE TWO ISSUES.

WE HAVE PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE BIKE AND PED PLAN.

IT SOUNDS LIKE WE HAVE ALMOST A REJECTION OF THIS COMPLETE STREETS CONCEPT. IS THAT THE CASE?

>> AS SOMEONE WITH A COMMENT, REJECTION, NO, I THINK IT REQUIRES FURTHER SCRUTINY. ALL I'M ASKING YOU IS THAT WE FIND OUT MORE THE ARGUMENT WAS MADE SURE AFTER PEOPLE LOOKED AT THIS AND WE HAVE A PROCESS AND LET'S FIND OUT WHAT THE PEOPLE THINK. I DON'T THINK IT'S UP TO US.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SO YOU'RE RECOMMENDING WE NOT HAVE A VOTE ON THE IKE AND PED PLAN UNTIL THE PLAN IS COMPLETED IN A

YEAR OR SO. >> IF WE LIFT OUT THE COMPLETE STREETS COMPONENT I'M FINE WITH IT AS WRITTEN.

IF WE LEAVE IT WE NEED TO FIND OUT MORE WHAT THE RESIDENTS THINK BEFORE WE ADOPT THAT AS A RECOMMENDATION.

>> I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THERE'D BE TWO SIMULTANEOUS PROPOSALS NOT PACKAGED IN ONE. MAYBE THAT WAS MY UNDERSTANDING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE TWO RESOLUTIONS REGARDING THE

TWO TOPICS. >> ARE WE NOT COMBINING THEM AT ALL? DOES ONE REFERENCE THE OTHER?

>> I'M KIND OF CONFUSED ON HAT YOU THINK WE'RE ADOPTING.

SO THE BIKE AND PED MASTER PLAN IS A DOCUMENT THAT SETS A VISION FOR I MPROVED SAFETY AND LIVEABILITY AND LOOKING AT IKE AND PEDESTRIAN OPTIONS. IT IS ASPIRATIONAL.

IT'S WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE. I WOULD LOVE TO LOW THE TRUCKS ON 161 OR FIGURE UT A WAY TO IMPROVE THAT AREA SO PEOPLE CAN WALK TO DIFFERENT PLACES. WE'RE GOING HAVE A KEMPER HOUSE SHORTLY AND OLDER FOLKS THAT MAY WANT TO WALK SAFELY IN THAT AREA. I'M NOT GOING TO CONCEDE THAT WE SHOULD BE BACKING OFF OF LOOKING AT THOSE ISSUES AND HAVING A VISION OF A SAFER COMMUNITY. WHAT THIS DOCUMENT AND BIKE AND PED PLAN IS IS GUIDANCE AND RESOURCES.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CONTENT IT DOESN'T SAY YOU MUST ADOPT

[01:10:05]

THESE. THIS IS A DESCRIPTION OF WHAT HAPPENED, WHAT THE EXISTING CONDITIONS ARE AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE WE CAN CONSIDER AND IMPLEMENTATION TOOLBOX MEANING YOU PULL THINGS FROM THE TOOLBOX AND FIGURE OUT WHAT MAY WORK. IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE GOING TO ADOPT A PARTICULAR COMPONENT AND WE'RE STUCK WITH THAT.

IT WOULD PROBABLY BE VETTED THROUGH THE PUBLIC AND I'M CONFUSED ON WHY WE'RE SPENDING SO MUCH TIME ON THE WORDSMITHING AND WHEN WE TALK WITH THE THREE-PAGE POLICY THAT MEANS YOU LOOK AT THE ASPECT OF THE STREET AND ALL THE USES FOR THAT STREET AND THEN IT COMES AGAIN WITH A TOOL KIT OF IDEAS THAT WE CAN IMPLEMENT AND IT'S A RESOURCE FOR OUR STAFF TO BE ABLE TO USE WHEN THEY START LOOKING AT THESE ISSUES.

THEY MAY CHOOSE NOT TO. THEY MAY PRESENT IT TO US AND SAY WE DON'T THINK THIS IS FEASIBLE.

WE CAN AGREE OR DISAGREE. THEY'RE GUIDANCE.

THEY'RE POLICY. WE HAD TO CLEARFY IN THE RESOLUTION WHAT A POLICY WAS BUT IT IS EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS AN EXPRESSION OF GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS AND NOT A COMMITMENT TO PROCEED WITH ANY SPECIFIC PROJECT.

NO ONE IS PROPOSING TO PUT BARRIERS ON A STREET TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM WALKING OR DRIVING THEIR CARS.

WE'RE PROPOSING TO MAKE THE STREET SAFER.

THESE ARE GOALS. I'M PREPARED TO VOTE ON THIS TONIGHT. I THINK IT WOULD BE A SAME AND WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORTS OF THE COMMUNITY IF WE DID NOT PROCEED.

IF WE KICK THE AN BACK TO THE COMMITTEE TO CASH IT OUT AND FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS WE WANT. WE ASPIRE TO THESE IDEALS OR

NOT. >> WOULD YOU BE OPEN TO A FURTHER REVISION OF THE LANGUAGE RATHER THAN XPRESSION OF GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS WHICH TO ME ARE STRONG WORDS AND USE YOUR WORD, IT'S A TOOL KIT OF POSSIBLE IDEAS.

WOULD YOU BE AGREEABLE TO THAT? >> PROVIDE AN ADDITIONAL TOOL AVAILABLE TO STAFF AND COUNCIL FOR THE PLANNING AND

PRIORITIZATION. >> GOALS AND AS PAIRATIONS ARE THINGS -- ASPIRATIONS ARE THINGS I ASPIRE TO DO.

I'M NOT JUST THINKING ABOUT IT AND REFERRING TO IT AS A DOCUMENT OR POSSIBLE TOOL KIT, I'M INSPIRED TO DO THIS, PUT IN BICYCLE BOULEVARDS ON THE MAJOR STREETS THROUGHOUT WORTHINGTON AND DO LL THESE THINGS. THOSE ARE MY GOALS.

THAT'S WHAT THE STATEMENT SAYS. >> THOSE THE DOOL.

THE GOALS ARE -- THOSE ARE THE GOALS.

THE TOOLS KIT INCLUDES OPTIONS. IT'S NOT SAYING WE'RE GOING PUT CIRCLES ON EVERY INTERSECTION. IT'S NOT SAYING THAT.

AGAIN WE'RE GOING THROUGH EACH PROJECT AND THIS A TREMENDOUS TOOL TO DETERMINE IF THEY'RE APPROPRIATE MOVING FORWARD THAT'S HOW ENVISION IT AND BELIEVE OUT THE RESOLUTION PRESENTS IT AND WHY I'M IN SUPPORT OF IT.

>> MADAME PRESIDENT. MADAME KOWALCZYK THE LANGUAGE DOES NOT AGREE WITH WHAT YOU JUST STATED AS THE MESSAGE AND INTENT AND INFORMATION OF THE PLAN AS ARTICULATED IT.

>> BY YOU. I UNDERSTAND IT THAT WAY.

>> PAGE 38 WHERE IT TALKS ABOUT THESE RECOMMENDATIONS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED IN CONCERT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW COMPLETE STREETS POLICIES. POLICIES AREN'T JUST IDEAS OR TOOL KITS. IT SUGGESTS AN ACTUAL FUNCTIONAL OPERATIONAL AND BUDGETARY ELEMENT TO IT.

THESE PLANS MATTER. THEY'RE NOT JUST RESOURCES.

I THINK OF A CARDINAL EXAMPLE IN MY OWN EXPERIENCE WAS THE 2014 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE. THAT PLAN FOR UMCH WAS NOT VIEWED AS AN OPTION IT TOOK ON A LIFE IT'S OWN AS AUTHORITY AND I DON'T WANT TO VOTE FOR A CONCEPT AND VISUALS TWO YEARS FROM NOW I'LL HAVE TO ARGUE AGAINST. THIS COUNCIL WE HAVE RIGHT NOW WILL REMEMBER THIS DISCUSSION BUT THREE AND FIVE YEARS FROM

[01:15:02]

NOW HOW MANY OF US WILL BE UP HERE AND THE COUNCIL AT THE TIME CAN CITE IT AUTHORITATIVELY AND THAT EMPERS THE DEGREE OF COMMITMENT TO IMPLEMENT THE IDEAS CONTAINED THEREIN.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYBODY FROM THE COMMITTEE WANT TO ADDRESS THIS? IF YOU'D LIKE TO, YOU'RE WELCOME

TO COME UP. >> I HAVE TO SAY I TALKED ABOUT A STORY FROM A COUPLE YEARS AGO WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT REPAVING HUNTLEY ROAD AND I WAS ON THE COMMITTEE AT THE TIME.

WE TALKED ABOUT PUTTING BICYCLES ON HUNTLEY ROAD.

AND THEY SAID WHY WOULD YOU PUT BICYCLES ON HUNTLEY ROAD BECAUSE IT'S TRUCK TRAFFIC AND WE DID NOT HAVE A PLAN.

SO THERE WAS NO POSITION THAT RESTART THE IDEA ON THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. SO WHEN THE OPPORTUNITIES COME UP LIKE REPAVING HUNTLEY ROAD OR PROPRIETORS ROAD WE HAVE A DOCUMENT TO GO TO AND SAY HERE'S WHAT THE GUIDELINE SAYS THAT COULD HAPPEN ON THE ROAD AND SE THE CRITERIA.

THERE'S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THAT WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN WITH A CROSSING ON 161 BECAUSE THERE'S NO CROSSING OR THREE-TENTHS OF A MILE BY HARTFORD AND PROPRIETORS AND THERE WAS A NEED FOR CROSSING. THE DISCUSSION CAME UP WHAT'S THE DRAFT PLAN SAY? IT SAYS THERE'S A HOT SPOT FOR A CROSSING AND MEANING THERE'S A NEED FOR A CROSSING SOMEWHERE IN THAT AREA. AND WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THAT. SO THE POINT OINT IS IT GIVES SOMETHING TO REFERENCE WHEN THE ACTIVITIES COME UP.

MS. KOWALCZYK EXPLAINS HOW THE DOCUMENT IS MEANT TO BE USED GOING THROUGH THIS WITH THE BIKE AND PED COMMITTEE.

IT'S A TOOL KIT. IT'S A WAY TO SAY WE'RE DOING THIS WORK ON THIS PARTICULAR STREET R THIS ACTIVITY IN THE CITY. WE NEED TO SATISFY ALL USERS IN THE CITY AND CYCLING TRAFFIC. WHAT DOES THE PLAN SAY WE SHOULD LOOK AT? THERE'S OTHER THINGS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT AND WE TALKED ABOUT THIS THE OTHER DAY.

THERE'S A LIMITATION. WE'D LIKE TO PUT A PEDESTRIAN CROSSING OVER HYDE STREET TO CONNECT WILSON BRIDGE ROAD BUT THAT MAY BE WHAT THE MASTER PLAN SAYS BUT YOU HAVE THREE CRITERIA THAT SAYS MONEY, LEGALITY AND PRACTICALITY.

THEY WILL LIMIT THE USE. AGAIN, I THINK HE IDEA OF ASPIRATIONAL IS THE RIGHT WAY TO GO AND GOING WITH ASPIRATIONAL IS THE TOOL KIT. THE TOOL KIT IS SAYS HERE'S THE SUGGESTION THE PLANNERS HAVE SAID HOW TO PROCEED FORWARD WITH IT. AS A MEMBER WE HAD SIGNIFICANT OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY AND MULTIPLE MEETINGS, WEBSITES THAT WERE AVAILABLE AND THE COMMITTEE SAID THIS IS OUR RECOMMENDATION.

LIKE YOU O WITH THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BOARD, WHAT

[01:20:05]

WOULD YOU YOU EXPECT US TO DO DIFFERENT? WE DID EVERYTHING AND GOT A CONSULTANT AND WENT THROUGH THE PROCESS AND HERE'S THE RECOMMENDATION.

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING THE ADVISORY BOARD CAN ADD TO WHAT WE'VE ALREADY DONE. SORRY I GOT EMOTIONAL BUT MS. KOWALCZYK SAID GIVING IT BACK TO COMMITTEE IS AN EXERCISE IN FUTILITY. THANK YOU.

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

I HAD A THOUGHT IN LISTENING TO MS. KOWALCZYK AND MR. ROBINSON WHAT I'M HEARING SAY PROBLEM AND I AM GOING BACK TO THE RESOLUTION WHERE IT SAYS UNDER SECTION 1, IT SAYS AS EXPRESSION OF GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS AND I CAN'T REMEMBER THE EXACT LANGUAGE MS. KOWALCZYK USED BUT GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS TO IMPROVE. ASPIRATIONS I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH. GOALS ARE DIFFERENT.

>> >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YOU'RE PROPOSING AN AMENDMENT TO THE RESOLUTION?

>> YES, I WOULD MOVE WE DROP THE WORD GOALS FROM SECTION 1 OF THE

RESOLUTION AS MODIFIED. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO I

HAVE A SECOND? >> SECOND.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE

AMENDMENT OF GOALS. >> CAN WE RESOLVE THE SUGGESTED

CHANGES? >> I'M NOT DONE TALKING ABOUT THIS BUT TO ARNS THE QUESTION, NO, NOT FOR ME.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE AMENDMENT -- ON AMENDING THE RESOLUTION TO REMOVE THE WORD GOALS AND. FURTHER DISCUSSION IN IF NOTE THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY BY SAYING AYE.

THAT PASSES. SO WE HAVE A SECOND AMENDMENT ON THE RESOLUTION THAT WE HAVE NOT YET PASSED.

OKAY. >> POINT OF INQUIRY.

I ASKED A QUESTION DIRECTED TO STAFF AND NOT SURE IT GOT ANSWERED. AT SOME POINT THE COMPLETE STREETS RESOLUTION AND MASTER PLAN RESOLUTION COMBINED FORCES IN A WAY FOR APPENDIX D SAYS IT'S NOT JUST THREE PAGES BUT A

NUMBER OF PAGES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: POLICY IS THE PAGES AND THEN THERE'S A TOOL KIT ATTACHED.

>> IF WE'RE TO APPROVE A RESOLUTION FOR THE MASTER PLAN AND I'D LIKE CLARITY ON HOW THAT HAPPENED AND WHEN.

>> I CAN ADDRESS THAT IF YOU'D LIKE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES. >> SO TWO SUMMERS AGAIN BIKE AND PED MADE A PRESENTATION TO CITY COUNCIL AN UPDATE AT THE TIME AND SOME ITEMS THEY WERE WORKING TOWARDS AND THE TWO THINGS THAT COUNCIL POINTED TO OF THE LIST OF THINGS THEY BROUGHT FORWARD WERE WORK ON A COMPLETE STREETS POLICY AND WORK ON A BIKE PED MASTER PLAN. SO THAT KIND OF STARTED PUTTING THE CONSULTANT FEES IN THE C.I.P. AND WORKING TOWARDS THE PROCESS. SO THAT WAS KIND OF WHAT ORIGINALLY PUT THEM TOGETHER BUT WHEN WE DID WORK WITH MR. WHITE

[01:25:04]

AND HIS TEAM AND THE BIKE AND PED ADVISORY BOARD THE IDEA WE'RE WORKING ON BOTH THOSE AND TO DO THEM SEPARATE DID NOT SEEM TO MAKE SENSE BECAUSE YOU MAY END UP WITH CONTRADICTORY POLICIES TALKING ABOUT BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESS.

THAT WAS THE INITIAL FACTOR WE STARTED THE CONVERSATIONS AND WHEN WE BROUGHT IN BLUE ZONES WITH THE TEAM AND HE HAS A BACKGROUND WITH THEM SO THEIR ABILITY TO WORK TOGETHER YOU SAW THE PRESENTATION AND THEY DID THEIR PUBLIC OUTREACH TOGETHER IT MADE SENSE TO HAVE SYMMETRY BETWEEN THE TWO PLANS.

ONE THING I'LL SPEAK TO THAT MAY HELP THE CONFUSION, WHILE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY IS CALLED A POLICY, THE POLICY ART SAYS YOU WILL LOOK AT STREETS AS YOU DO IMPROVEMENTS TO THEM.

THE POLICY PART OF COMPLETE STREETS DOESN'T SAY YOU WILL MAKE THE SPECIFIC CHANGES. IT JUST SAID MR. WHITING WILL NOT COMPLETE A COMPLETE STREETS PROJECT WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE COMPLETE STREETS TOOL WIT AND THE STREET TYPOLOGIES AND IT'S INDUSTRIAL OR RESIDENT OR A CATEGORY IN THERE AND WITH THAT COMES A TOOLBOX AND YOU DECIDE WHETHER YOU'RE GOING APPLY THE TOOLBOX TO HOSE STREETS AND THAT'S WHERE THE DECISION PROCESS COMES. DO WE WANT TO APPLY BY BOULEVARD TYPE TREATMENTS TO THIS OR NO, IT DOESN'T APPLY AND WOULDN'T WORK OR WE DON'T HAVE MONEY OR CAN'T LEGALLY WITH THE QUALIFICATIONS ADDRESSED. YES, IT'S A POLICY AND REQUIRES YOU TAKE CERTAIN STEPS BUT A COMPLETE STREETS POLICY DOES NOT SAY YOU WILL DEFINITIVELY DO THESE THINGS IN THE TOOLBOX.

>> I WOULD ADD IT ALSO THEN OBLIGATES THE STAFF TO

ARTICULATE WHY E MAY NOT. >> WITH THE CONCERNED EXPRESS IT FLIPS THAT SCRIPT SO YOU'RE NOT MAKING THE ARGUMENT WHY YOU SHOULD AT THE BICYCLE AMENITIES. YOU'RE THEN TASKED WITH SAYING WHY YOU'RE NOT. IT SAYS YOU'LL GIVE THE REASONS

WHY YOU'RE NOT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: EACH SPECIFIC PROJECT, FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN WE DID OUR STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMS WE HAD SPECIFIC STREETS E LOOKED AT AND SO EACH YEAR WHATEVER STREETS WERE ON THE STREET IMPROVEMENT PROJECT WE WOULD LOOK AT AND OMEBODY WOULD BE ADDRESSING WHETHER OR NOT THESE STREETS SHOULD HAVE THESE CHANGES OR NOT AND ALSO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR PUBLIC INPUT, PUBLIC TO HEAR THAT SAYS THIS IS WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING AT DOING

WITH THAT PARTICULAR STREET. >> HERE'S A SPECIFIC EXAMPLE.

WE'RE LOOKING AT THE REPAVING OF WORTHINGTON COLINA WITH ALL KINDS OF RECOMMENDATIONS ATTACHED TO IT IN THE PLANNING DOCUMENTS BUT IT'S A STRAIGHTFORWARD REPAVING, THERE'S NOT A BIG BUDGET FOR IT SO THE MESSAGE TO BIKE AND PED IS THIS IS NOT THE OPPORTUNITY FOR FINANCIAL REASONS.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO ADD CURBS AND WIDEN THE STREET AND A RIGHT OF WAY. AND IN FIVE OR SIX YEAR DO SOMETHING NOR SIG -- NOR SIGNIFICANT AND TAKE THE FUNDING BUT IT REQUIRED US TO LOOK AT IT BUT NO SAYING YOU CAN'T DO IT

WITHOUT A B OR C. >> FIRST, THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AND WHAT YOU SAID AND HOW YOU TESTIFIED AND DESCRIBED THE NATURE OF THE PLAN AND PURPOSE, I AGREE WITH.

HAVING A PLAN AND PRIORITIZATION I AGREE WITH.

I THINK YOUR DESCRIPTION OF THE CRITERIA THAT WOULD BE USED MOVING FORWARD SUPPORTS MY RECOMMENDED EDITS.

FOR INSTANCE, I FORGET THE SECOND TERM BUT I THINK THE THIRD TERM WAS APPLICABILITY OR PRACTICALITY FORIC PROJECTS.

AND IN FACT, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TRYING TO GET AT IN MY SECOND ARAGRAPH PAGE SEVEN WHERE THE TEXT AS WRITTEN RIGHT NOW SAYS GIVEN FUNDING LIMITATIONS, STRATEGIC IMPLEMENT OF RECOMMENDATIONS AS NECESSARY. THE ONLY CRITERIA CITED IN THE TEXT AS WRITTEN NOW IS FUNDING. IF THE FUNDING IS THERE YOU WOULD PROCEED WITH THE POLICIES AS OUTLINED.

MY SUGGESTION SAYS GIVEN FUNDING LIMITATIONS AND INHERENT

[01:30:07]

CHALLENGES AND SPECIFIES THERE'S OTHER CRITERIA THER THAN FUNDING BECAUSE AS I UNDERSTAND IT, COMPLETE STREET POLICY MANY CONCEPTS ARE NOT APPLICABLE OR DESIRABLE HERE IN WORTHINGTON.

I THINK AS PROPOSED ARTICULATES THAT AND IF WE STICK WITH THE LANGUAGE WE WILL IMPLEMENT THE CONCEPT.

AND MANAGE BREESON'S CONCEPTS ABOUT THE BURDEN NOW SHIFTING TO SAYING WHY ARE WE SHIFTING TO ME REINFORCES IT MORE SO.

THE BURDEN ON US TO EXPLAIN WHY WE DON'T WANT TO DO THINGS IN DETAIL, IT IS MORE THAN JUST A TOOL KIT OF IDEA.

IT'S CHANGING STAFF ORIENTATION AND THE BIAS AND ASSUMPTION OF WHAT IS THE NORMAL. IT'S NOT A SMALL MATTER.

>> I THINK YOUR COMMENT FLIPS ME FROM OKAY TO THE REALIZATION STAFF IS NOW GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN IN ESSENCE AND THEY MUST PROVE WHY THEY'RE NOT DOING THIS. THIS IS NO LONGER A TOOL KIT IT'S PRESCRIPTIVE. I'M CURIOUS TO STAFF HOW YOU

FEEL ABOUT THAT. >> I THINK WE'RE OPERATING IN LARGE PART THAT WAY ALREADY. I THINK THE PARADIGM HAS SHIFTED. I AGREE WITH MR. BATES IT WOULD ADD CONTEXT TO THAT CONVERSATION.

COUNCIL HAS CALLED UPON US WHEN WE'RE DOING MAJOR PROJECTS TO BE MORE DISCERNING, LOOK AT OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE THE ROADWAY OR INFRASTRUCTURE TO ACCOMMODATE MORE USERS.

SO, WE HAVE BEEN DOING THAT AD HOC WITHOUT A CONSTRUCT OR CONTEXT THAT THAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS PLAN AND THIS POLICY.

LET ME GIVE YOU SOME EXAMPLES. WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THE PARADIGM AND WHEN WE WERE REPAVING WILSON BRIDGE ROAD WEST OF REBUR AND THE COUNCIL CAUSED US TO LOOK THAT THE ROAD AND WE SAW THAT WE COULD EDUCE LANE WIDTH THEREFORE INCREASE THE BICYCLE LANES AND DO A RECTANGULAR TO ACCOMMODATE A SAFER CROSSING FOR CYCLISTS TRYING TO GET TO THE TRAIL.

WE WERE DOING HAT AD HOC WITHOUT A TOOL KIT AND WITHOUT REQUIREMENT. THERE'S PROBABLY EXAMPLES WHERE WE FAILED TO LOOK AT BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE A CONSISTENT POLICY TO DO SO. HUNTLEY ROAD WAS THE OPPOSITE.

WE WERE ETTING URGED TO LOOK EIGHT TO ACCOMMODATE BIKES AND MR. MYERS SAID I DON'T THINK REDUCING THE LANE AND THERE WAS A HEALTHY DIALOGUE AND COUNCIL DECIDED NOT TO DO IT.

BOTH OF THOSE INSTANCES, WE DIDN'T HAVE POLICY REQUIREMENT TO LOOK AT IT OR B, A SET OF TOOLS THAT EVERYBODY COMMONLY UNDERSTOOD TO REFER TO WHEN WE HAD THE DISCUSSION.

SO IN THAT REGARD, THIS PLAN AND THIS SET OF PLATFORM DIDN'T HELP THOSE CONVERSATIONS AND WE WOULD HAVE THEM MORE FREQUENTLY BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE HAD THEM MORE IN THE PAST BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO LOOK AT IT AND POTENTIALLY HAD MORE IMPROVEMENTS LIKE THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD THREW OUR COMMUNITY.

-- THROUGH OUR COMMUNITY.

>> WHEN WEST NEW ENGLAND AVENUE COMES UP FOR RESURFACE, STAFF WILL BE REQUIRED TO DEFEND WHY THEY ARE NOT IMPLEMENTING A

[01:35:01]

BICYCLE BOULEVARD AS PART OF THAT RESURFACING?

>> I THINK WE'D LOOK AT IT AND WOULD AS WE ARE NOW DOING, TALK ONE THE BIKE AND PED ADVISORY BOARD AND SAY THIS IS THE FUNDING AND HERE'S THE OPPORTUNITIES WE SEE IS TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS. THERE'S PRACTICAL LIMITATIONS EITHER DISCUSS THAT WITH THE BOARD OR WITH YOU.

I CAN SEE A NUMBER OF THINGS LIMITING THAT.

WHEN WE REPAVED IN THE KILBORN VILLAGE NEIGHBORHOOD WE HAD LIMITATIONS. WE DOES WHAT WE COULD AFFORD TO DO AND IT WAS PUBLICLY ACCEPTABLE TO DO TO HELP PEOPLE FIND THEIR WAY FROM THE DRIVE BEING DEVELOPS AS MORE OF A MORE BIKE BOULEVARD THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO OLD WORTHINGTON.

I THINK THAT'S A GOOD SCALE OF THE EXAMPLE OF THINGS WE'D DO.

TALK ABOUT HOW YOU'D DO IT, MR. WHITING.

>> HANK YOU. I'D BE HARD PRESSED TO SAY ANYTHING THAT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN SAID.

THE POINT IS IN THE EXAMPLES YOU'VE USED, IT WOULD NOT BE WE'LL SAY WE'LL DO A BICYCLE BOULEVARD AND THERE'S A TOOL KIT AND THERE'S A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS.

MORE ARE MORE PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED THAN BICYCLE ORIENTED.

WE HAVE TACITLY IN THE PAST LOOKED AT BIKE AND PED IMPROVEMENTS. WE'VE HAD NO REAL GUIDANCE OR ABILITY TO HAVE THE TOOL KIT TO LOOK TO COORDINATE WITH THE BIKE AND PED BOARD AND THIS GIVES US THAT ABILITY TO RATIONALLY LOOK AT THE CAPABILITY TO ACCOMMODATE BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN LOCATIONS ABOUT THE WOULD NOT WANT TO BE GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENCE IS NOT THE CASE. IT GIVES US THE FRAMEWORK TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO LOOK AT IT AND COUPLE WITH FEASIBILITY OF DOING IT. WHETHER IT'S PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE AND PRACTICAL AND WHETHER IT'S LEGAL OR APPROPRIATE IN THOSE CASES. IT GIVES ME THE ABILITY TO RATIONALLY LOOK AT THE ACCOMMODATION FOR BIKE AND PEDESTRIANS BUT NOT JUST STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

IT'S ANY PROJECT WE DO ASSOCIATED WITH THE UTILITY OR ANY IMPROVEMENT THAT MAY IMPACT THE ROADWAYS.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE LANES AND WIDENING WON'T LIKELY WON'T HAPPEN BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT PRACTICAL OR AFFORDABLE OR OFTEN LEGAL. THE SMALLER THINGS WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT LIKE LEADING PEDESTRIAN INDICATORS LIKE CERTAIN TYPES OF CROSSWALKS OR CERTAIN AREAS AND A DIFFERENT TYPES THAT ACCOMMODATE THE CROSSINGS.

>> I THINK THERE'S A PROACTIVE SIDE OF THIS BIGGER ROJECTS LIKE CURB AND GUTTER AND DOING A PROJECT AND THAT REQUIRED APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL FUNDING. AND THERE'S ONES THAT WOULD

[01:40:09]

REQUIRE APPLICATION AND DISCUSSION.

>> AND THERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY IT HAS A

STREETS ELEMENT TO IT. >> WE WOULD SAVE TROUBLE AND

TIME AT THE TIME OF THE PROJECT. >> I THINK THIS WAS MENTIONED THERE IS AN IMPACT. AT SOME POINT WE'D BE BEST SUITED TO HAVE A COMPLETE STREETS POLICY SIMPLY FOR THE FACT THAT WE WILL BE DINGED WHEN WE GO FOR ANY MORPSI FUNDING WITHOUT HAVING THEM IN OUR BAG OF TRICKS AS WE APPLY FOR GRANTS

AND FUNDING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE BURNING? ANYTHING WE NEED SAID BECAUSE WE QUITE A BIT LEFT TO HIT ON THE AGENDA PLUS AN EXECUTIVE SESSION. JUST TRYING TO KEEP US ON TRACK.

>> CLOSING COMMENT ON THIS. FOR ME THE ULTIMATE LITMUS TEST WOULD BE IF THE AVERAGE RESIDENT PICKED UP THE PLAN AND READ IT WOULD THEY UNDERSTAND THE ACT AND FUNCTION AS ARTICULATED TONIGHT OR ASSUME SOMETHING DIFFERENT? I THINK HE LATTER IS THE CASE. I DON'T THINK THE LANGUAGE AS WRITTEN CONFORMS AS TO THE USE AND PURPOSE OF THE PLAN TO PASS IT AS ARTICULATED. I'LL TURN IT OVER TO THE

COLLECTIVE WISDOM OF COUNCIL. >> THIS MAY SEEM LIKE A JOKE BUT IT'S A SERIOUS QUESTION. IS THERE A WAY TO PUT THE RESOLUTION WE'RE PRESUMPTIVELY PASSING AS PAGE 1 OF THE MASTER

PLAN. >> IT'S REALLY, YOU CAN DIRECT US TO INCLUDE IT IN PUBLISHING OF IT OR YOU COULD ASK THAT THE ORDER OF THE TABLE OF CONTENTS BE AMENDED OR LIST IT AS AN AP APPENDICES.

>> MATION -- MAKE A MOTION TO ACCOMPLISH IS THAT?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FOR WE PASS THAT WE CAN DIRECT SOMEONE

TO DO THAT.IS THAT? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FOR WE PASS THAT WE CAN DIRECT SOMEONE TO DO THAT.

>> WORTHINGTON COUNCIL ADOPTS THIS TO THE MASTER PLAN.

>> I'M TRYING TO GET CLARITY BECAUSE I LIKE THE IDEA OF IT

WITH THE PLAN. >> MR. SMITH'S PROVIDED PAGE 1 OF THE DOCUMENT GETS ME FROM A NO TO A YES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THERE ANYTHING TO KEEP US FROM

DOING THAT? >> NO.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE A PLAN THAT'S NOT BEEN AMEND AND LOOKING AT ADOPTING THE PLAN THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN COMMITTEE HAS WORKED SO HARD TO GET THROUGH AND WE ARE AN INVESTIGATION THAT HAS -- RESOLUTION FULLY AMENDED.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? YES.

CAN WE VOTE ON THE RESOLUTION WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS RESOLUTION PAGE 1 OF THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? THANK YOU, EVERYONE.

>> ABSTAIN. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SO WE HAVE SIX YESES AND AN ABSTENTION.

[8.A. Resolution No. 30-2019 Complete Streets Policy]

MOVING ON TO RESOLUTION NUMBER 30-2019 THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY. A RESOLUTION TO FORMALLY REACH THE PLANNING COMMISSION. MR. GREESON.

[01:45:04]

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAD AN INITIAL RESOLUTION IN OUR COUNCIL PACKET.

THERE WAS AN AMENDED RESOLUTION MR. MYERS AND HEED -- AMENDED.

I'D LIKE TO PUT IN A SUGGESTION UNDERSTAND SECTION 1 IN THE RED WRITING AS ASPIRATION FOR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES SO THEY'RE CONSISTENT WITH THE OTHER. I WOULD LIKE SOMEBODY TO MOVE 3 THIS SINCE I CAN'T WE AMEND THE ORDINANCE -- THE RESOLUTION SO IT HAS THE COMMITMENT TO ANY PARTICULAR PROCEDURE.

>> I MOVE WE MODIFIED SECTION 1 OF RESOLUTION 30-2019 WITH THE

SAME LANGUAGE AS RESOLUTION 29. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, I DON'T

THINK IT WAS INTRODUCED. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I KNOW.

>> SORRY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT. WE'LL MOVE IT.

MS. KOWALCZYK MOVES THE ADOPTION OF RESOLUTION NUMBER 30-2019 SECONDED BY MS. DOROTHY. MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MS. DOROTHY AND SECONDED BY MR. MYERS.

SECTION 1 WOULD READ THE CITY ATTACH THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY AS ASPIRATIONS AND NOT A COMMITMENT TO APPROVE ANY PARTICULAR. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE AMENDED RESOLUTION JUST AMENDING THE RESOLUTION SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? MR. GREESON.

>> WE HAVE NO ADDITIONAL PRESENTATION.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND YOU WERE AMENDING THE RESOLUTION PRIOR TO HAPPY ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT THIS.

SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. >> AYE.

>> OPPOSED? >> NO.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE 5-2.

>> FOR THE AUDIENCE MEMBERS AND FOR US ON COUNCIL, I THINK ESPECIALLY WITH THE MASTER PLAN BEING PASSED AT THIS POINT, IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THE INTEND I THINK OF COUNCIL FROM THE GET GO OF THE COMMITTEE TO INCREASE THE FUNDING AND FIGURE OUT WHAT

PROJECTS WE CAN TACKLE IN 2020. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'D LIKE TO THANK THE COMMITTEE FOR THE TIME, WORK AND EFFORT AND W WORKING ON THIS.

WE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO PASS THE PLAN AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PAST COMMITMENT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[8.B. Resolution No. 39-2019 Resolution in Support of Ohio Senate Bill 11, the Ohio Fairness Act]

MOVING TO 39-2019. STRONGLY URGING THE MEMBERS OF THE OHIO ENERAL ASSEMBLY TO ENACT THE OHIO FAIRNESS ACT.

SECONDED BY MR. FOUST AND MM

MR. GREESON. >> YOU MAY REMEMBER LAST WEEK COUNCILMEMBER KOWALCZYK REQUESTED A RESOLUTION BEING PREPARED AND ADMITTEDLY SHE PREPARED IT WE ONLY FORMATTED IT AND SHE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB AND THE RESOLUTION BEFORE YOU ACCORDING TO OHIO SENATE BILL 11 THE OHIO FAIRNESS ACT AS REFLECTED IN THE DOCUMENTS BEFORE YOU WOULD PROHIBIT DISCRIMINATION ON GENDER IDENTITY AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND IT INCLUDED A LEGISLATIVE SERVICE ANALYSIS OF THE BILL.

BE GLAD O ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AND ASK THE

[01:50:08]

RESOLUTION BE PLACED ON THE AGENDA.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: THANK YOU MM MR. GREESON FOR COMMENTING ON THE RSOLUTION.

I APPRECIATE THOSE COMMENTS. I DID NOT PAY HIM TO SAY THAT.

SO I HAD ASKED FOR THIS RESOLUTION BECAUSE JUNE IS PRIDE MONTH. I THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE O ASK STATE LEADERS TO STEP UP ND TAKE ACTION TO SUPPORT NON-DISCRIMINATION THROUGH AN ACT TO PROTECT AGAINST SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER OR IDENTIFICATION STATEWIDE AND IT'S HAD THREE HEARINGS IN OHIO'S ASSEMBLY WHICH IS THE MOST HEARINGS AN ACT LIKE THIS HAS HAD AN A ENERAL ASSEMBLY BUT I THINK US SEND MESSAGE TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS IMPORTANT TO INDICATE OUR SUP SUPPORT. I ASK COUNCILMEMBERS SUPPORT THIS RESOLUTION BECAUSE THE RIGHT THING DO AND SEND A STATEMENT THAT ALL SIT DISTANCE -- CITIZENS OF OHIO NEED TO BE

TREATED FAIRLY. >> I'D LIKE TO THANK COUNCILMEMBER KOWALCZYK FOR PUSHING US THE EXTRA MILE.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER COMMENTS? IT'S OBSCENE WE'RE OF ONE OF THE STATES HAT DON'T HAVE THESE CLASS PROSE -- CLASSES PROTECT AND I'M GLAD WE'LL SEND THIS ON TO STATE REPRESENTATIVES.

ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

[9.A.III. Continued discussion regarding community visioning consultant proposals]

IT PASS. ANYTHING ELSE, MR. GREESON?

>> THERE'S AN AMENDMENT TO THE AGENDA THAT WAS PUBLISHED TO HAVE CONTINUED DISCUSSION REGARDING COMMUNITY VISIONING PROCESS AT THE LAST SPECIAL MEETING I BELIEVE THERE WAS A DISCUSSION ABOUT NARROWING THE LIST OF CONSULTANTS AND DELEGATING TO MEMBER OF COUNCIL THAT STAFF IN CHECKING REFERENCES AND SO WE'RE PREPARED TO HELP WITH THAT CONVERSATION THIS EVENING AND IT'S UP TO YOU WHETHER YOU WANT TO VIT.

[01:55:04]

-- HAVE IT? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I THINK IT'S AN IMPORTANT TOPIC AND WE'VE ALL DECIDED WE DON'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND AND FALL BEHIND ON THE VISIONING PROCESS GOING. I KNOW WE WERE EXPECTED TO BRING TERMS. -- MATERIALS.

I'M SURE THERE'S DIFFERENT VIEWS.

I'M NOT SURE -- I'M THINKING PART OF WHAT WE COULD LOOK AT IS DO WE FEEL IF THERE'S ANY PARTICULAR OF THE FOUR THAT MAYBE SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT WOULD LIMIT IT TO TWO OR I DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN GET TO ONE OR LOOK AT TWO WE NEED TO FIND USE FR.

WHAT WERE THE THOUGHTS? WE HAVE FOUR TO LOOK AT?

>> MADAME PRESIDENT, MAYBE THIS IS TOO BOLD WOULD IT BE A GOOD PLACE TO ASK THE SEVEN OF US TO STATE WHO OUR NUMBER ONE WAS AND SEE WHAT WE GET OUT OF THAT? MAYBE WE'RE CLOSER THAN WE THINK

ON THIS ISSUE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

START. >> MY NUMBER ONE CHOICE WAS

>> IN THE INTEREST OF EQUITY CAN WE GO TO THE OTHER END FIRST?

>> I DON'T THINK IT MATTERS BECAUSE I WAS INTERESTED IN

PLANNING NEXT. >> INTEREST IN PLANNING NEXT.

WE NEED TO GIVE OUR TOP TWO. LET'S HEAR FROM OTHER PEOPLE.

>> I'LL THROW IN MY HAT FOR PLANNING NEXT.

>> I ALSO LIKE PLANNING NEXT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THREE SAY FIRST CHOICE AND ONE AS A SECOND CHOICE.

ELIMINATION

>> NOBODY LIKES FUTURE I.Q.? THEY WERE MY SECOND.

JI LIKED THEM BUT THEY -- >> I LIKED THEM BUT THEY DIDN'T GO DEEP ENOUGH IN GETTING INFORMATION FROM THE CITY.

>> THE ONLY QUESTION WITH MEIER IS I LIKED THEM A LOT I DON'T KNOW THEY GOT IT. IT SEEMED THEY WANTED TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN INSTEAD OF A VISION STATEMENT.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THE END THE LIGHT BULB WENT OFF.

>> I WAS CONCERNED THEY WERE GOING DEEP BUT I THINK THEY CAN REVISE AND EXPAND. THERE WAS A LIMIT THE SCOPE TO BEGIN ITH BUT ONE REASON WAS TO GO DEEP.

>> MY CONCERN WITH PLANNING NEXT I THINK I INDICATED THROUGH MY QUESTIONS DURING INTERVIEW BUT I WAS NOT CONSOLED IN THEIR ANSWER TO A RESPONSE TO MY QUESTION ABOUT THEIR ROLE IN SHAPING OR BEING PART OF THE PROCESS FOR THE UPPER ARLINGTON WHEN I ASKED HIM SPECIFICALLY WHAT WAS HIS FIRM'S ROLE.

HE DESCRIBED THE FORMATION OF THE DECISION MAKING COMMITTEE, I FELT, AFFIRMATIVELY AS BEING CONSTITUTED WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS AND BZA MEMBERS AND SO FORTH. HE DIDN'T SPEAK TO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS PRETTY LEAR WAS MY CONCERN THAT THEIR PROCESS WAS

[02:00:04]

BIASSED TOWARDS DEVELOPING AN OUTCOME THAT REFLECTED CITY MANAGEMENT. AND I'VE GOT TO SAY IS IF WE HIRE THEM I'M GOING TO BE EXTREMELY SKEPTICAL AND VIGILANT AND THAT'S LL I NEED TO SAY. I THINK THEY'RE THE WRONG

CHOICE. >> I'LL SAY IT FOR THE VIDEO RECORD UP IN THE MEETING ROOM I THINK JACKSON CLARK HAS EVERY COMPONENT AND ELEMENT OF WHAT WE'VE EEN DISCUSSING THAT NOBODY ELSE BRINGS TO THE TABLE. I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THEM BEFORE BEFORE THIS PROCESS. I WASN'T IMPRESSED WITH THE WRITTEN PROPOSAL AND SAME WITH THE OTHER TEAM, I DON'T KNOW WHO THEY ARE, BUT I THINK THEY GET IT COMPLETELY TRYING TO GET TO THE HEARTS AND MINDS AND AGGREGATING THAT INFORMATION.

THAT WAS MY PITCH UPSTAIRS AND AGAIN TONIGHT.

>> JACKSON CLARK WAS MY SECOND CHOICE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I CAN SAY THAT WE'VE KNOCKED DOWN ONE.

WE HAVE FOUR FOR PLANNING NEXT, FOUR AND A HALF.

>> LIKE WITH MR. SMITH MEIER WAS A DISTANT SECOND.

I FOUND HIM OUT FRONT AND ALSO NOT THAT WE BUY BASED ON COST OF CHOOSING PLANNING NEXT OR MEIER.

THE IFFERENCE IS 80 VERSUS 150. WE HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR HOW WE SPEND PUBLIC MONEY. IF WE FELT BOTH WOULD DO A GOOD JOB THERE'S ALREADY BEEN CRITICISM ABOUT

>> IN FURTHER DISCUSSION WE CAN TELL THEM WHAT WE'RE COMFORTABLE WITH AND WHAT WE EXPECT FOR THE PRICE.

I THINK WHOEVER WE LOOK AT WE CAN WORK WITH.

MAYBE THAT MEANS NARROWING ITS DOWN TO TWO AND SEE WHO WE CAN

WORK WITH BETTER. >> I LIKE THE IDEA F NARROWING DOWN TO TWO AND ASKING SPECIFIC QUESTIONS AND ALSO I HATE TO STEAL PEOPLE'S IDEAS BUT SOME IDEAS OF OTHER CONSULTANTS I'D LOVE TO SEE HOW THESE FINALISTS WOULD REACT TO THAT AND IF THEY PRICE THEM AND CONSIDER IMPLEMENTING SOME STRATEGIES.

NOBODY TALKED ABOUT THE EDUCATION COMPONENT AND NOBODY TALKED ABOUT THAT. EACH CONSULTANT TOOK THE ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN AS SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

I'D LIKE TO ASK A STRAIGHT-UP QUESTION HOW MUCH TO FACILITATE AND IMPLEMENT AN EDUCATION COMPONENT AS WELL.

>> I SEEM TO RECALL SOME DISCUSSION ABOUT EDUCATION.

IT WOULD BE GOOD FOLLOW-UP QUESTION TO CLARIFY IF IT'S NOT CLEAR ARE YOU PROPOSING THIS IN YOUR ORIGINAL MILLION OR IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE WE NEED TO CONSIDER.

>> DID I THINK I HEARD THAT IN PLANNING NEXT ACTUALLY AND OTHER PROPOSALS HAVING AN EDUCATION PIECE BUT IT WOULD BE GREAT TO CLEAR IF I WHAT THAT IS TO KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.

I AM STILL -- I THINK WE HAVE DIR DIRECTED WHAT WE CAN BUT HANDS OFF.

I HAVE GREAT CONFIDENCE WE CAN REACH OUT TO GIVE PEOPLE THEIR INPUT THAT PEOPLE THAT WE DON'T NORMALLY HEAR FROM I THINK IS A KEY OF REASONABLE WHY WE ARE DOING THIS TO HEAR FROM PEOPLE WE DON'T NORMALLY HEAR FROM AND WE MADE THAT CLOUD AND CLEAR.

I THINK WHOEVER WE GET TO BE OUR CONSULTANT WILL MAKE SURE WE

[02:05:03]

HEAR FROM PEOPLE AND THERE'S DIFFERENT METHODOLOGIES AND GET

MORE APPLES TO APPLES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: AS WE'RE SEEKING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM PLANNING AND MEIER. IS THAT WHAT I'M -- WHAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DO WE NEED FROM THEM? WHAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IS NEEDED?

>> WE WERE GOING TO ENGAGE IN REFERRAL AND TALK TO A COMMUNITY IN WHICH WE WORKED WE THINK MAY BE RELEVANT TO ET FEEDBACK FROM

THEM TO SEE HOW THEY INTERACTED. >> WE'LL LOOK AT HAVING A

REFERENCE CHECK ON THE TWO? >> THAT'S SOMETHING WE DISCUSSED AND WE DISCUSSED WHETHER WE HAD FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS.

I KNOW WE'D DONE SOMEWHERE WE -- DID WE ALREADY DO THAT? IF YOU HAD FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS THEN THE QUESTION ABOUT EDUCATION, WHAT IS YOUR EDUCATION COMPONENT AND HOW YOU DO EXPECT TO EDUCATE PEOPLE AND AT WHAT POINT IN THE PROCESS IS

A GOOD QUESTION. >> I'M HAPPY TO VOLUNTEER IF YOU INDIVIDUALLY HAVE QUESTIONS FOR MEIER DOING BOTH IF YOU WANT TO SEND THEM TO ME AND I CAN COMPILE IT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF STAFF CAN DO A REFERENCE CHECK.

>> I MIGHT RESPECTFULLY FLIP THAT AND SO WE HAVE CONSISTENCY IN THE COMMUNICATION THAT WE HAVE A COLLECTION OF QUESTIONS WE THEN FORMULATE AND THEN DISTRIBUTE AND HAVE A METHOD OF COLLECTION FROM THE CONSULTANTS AND THEIR ANSWERS WE'D BE GLAD TO DO THAT AND RATHER HAVE COUNCILMEMBERS ENGAGE WITH US OR SEPARATELY FROM STAFF IN THE REFERENCE TRACKS BECAUSE I THINK IT MAY BE BENEFICIAL FOR SOME OF THAT TO BE DONE DIRECTLY BY YOU

ALL. >> DO WE HAVE OUNCILMEMBERS THAT WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF THE REFERENCE

CHECK NOT ALL SEVEN? >> MY FLIP OF THAT IS THE SUGGESTION RESPECTFULLY. YOU MAY DISAGREE WITH THAT.

WE COULD DO IT BUT WE'D WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO ASK AND THERE'S A COMMON SAYS OF QUESTIONS FOR EACH REFERENCE YOU WANT TO DEVELOP AND YOU EITHER DELEGATE IT TO ONE, A GROUP OR A STAFF. WHOEVER IS CHECKING REFERENCES NEEDS TO BE ASKED ESSENTIALLY THE SAME SET OF UESTIONS.

>> I'M HAPPY TO PARTICIPATE ON A COMMITTEE IF WE CHOOSE TO THAT.

I THINK IT WOULD BE VALUABLE TO HAVE COUNCIL.

>> WE AN WORK WITH THE STRING COMMITTEE TO COME P WITH A LIST

OF QUESTIONS TO GET ACCESS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHING ELSE ON VISIONING? MR. GREGREESON, ANYTHING ELSE?

>> IT'S CUSTOMARY TO NOTIFY THE TWO THAT AREN'T FINALISTS THEY'RE NO LONGER IN CONSIDERATION.

MAY I GO AHEAD AND DO THAT AND I HEARD JACKSON CLARK AND FUTURE I.Q. OKAY.

WE WILL DO THAT TOMORROW AND THEN MADAME PRESIDENT, I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO REPORT AT THIS HOUR BECAUSE I'M GOING TO REQUEST AN EXECUTIVE SESSION FOR BOARD AND COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS AND TO DISCUSS BRIEFLY A LAY ACQUISITION

SUBJECT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT. MR. LINDSEY.

>> NO THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

[10. Reports of Council Members]

MR. ROBINSON. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NOTHING

ADDITIONAL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. FOUST? MR. SMITH.

>> TWO THINGS HOPEFULLY BRIEFLY. I'M WONDERING ACTUALLY,

[02:10:06]

MR. HURLEY IF YOU CAN STAY BACK A COUPLE MINUTES.

THANK YOU. SECOND THING IS I PROMISED YOU GUYS IN JUNE AT SOME POINT AND HERE WE ARE AT HE END OF THE JUNE MEETINGS WE WOULD -- AND I WOULD REPOE -- PREPROPOSE THE WHOLE BED TAX THINGS AND WHAT WE'LL DO WITH THE GRANTS IN THE 2020 CYCLE AND PROPOSE AN AS A PLACE HOLDER NUMBER WE BUDGET FOR $100,000 FOR COMMUNITY WHICH WOULD BE A -- COMMUNITY GRANTS

WHICH WOULD BE NEW. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: CAN YOU GUYS CHECK THE BUDGET AND LET US KNOW HOW THAT FITS IN WITH

BUDGETING. >> THAT'S WHY I'M GIVING THE

HEADS-UP NOW. >> IS THAT SEPARATE? IN THE DEPARTMENTAL LINE WE CURRENTLY ALLOCATE $136,000 FOR THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND PARTN PARTNERSHIP. YOU WOULD EXCLUDE THOSE TWO?

>> MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT LINE ITEM WAS GOING AWAY?

>> I WOULD LOVE LINE ITEMS TO GO AWAY BUT I HAVE NOT HEARD THAT.

>> THE BED TAX, THE PORTION OF THE BED TAX THE CITY RECEIVES THAT DOESN'T GO TO THE COMMISSION OR VISITOR'S BUREAU IS COMMITTED TO THE GENERAL FUND.

SO IT'S A REDUCTION IN GENERAL FUND REVENUES ELIGIBLE EXPENSE OF THOSE BED TAXES IS COMMUNITY GRANTS BUT WE STILL APPROPRIATED SIMILAR AMOUNT TO THE PRIOR YEAR, I BELIEVE.

MAYBE WITH A 3% INCREASE. WE DO NOT INCLUDE A LIMITATION

OF COMMUNITY GRANT FUNDING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IT'S MORE ALONG THE LINES OF ALLOCATING MORE OF THE GRANTS PULLING OUT THE PARTNERSHIP AND THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND WHAT'S LEFT WE WORK O ALLOCATE TO VARIOUS GROUPS THAT PLY FOR THE -- APPLY FOR THE FUNDING. SO WE'D LIKE TO HAVE COUNCIL HAVE STAFF DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY AND THEN HAVE COUNCIL CONSIDER AN INCREASE IN THAT ALLOCATION FOR THE REMAINING POTENTIAL GRANTEES. AND WHATEVER THE NUMBER IS, AN INCREASE WOULD BE GREAT BECAUSE WE STRUGGLE.

WE ARE EVER ABLE TO GIVE ENOUGH FUNDING TO EACH OF THE GROUPS THAT ASK FOR IT AND WE HAVE TO EVALUATE CERTAIN THINGS AND POTENTIALLY TELL GRANTEES OR APPLICANTS THAT WE'RE NOT ABLE TO FUND THEM SO WE FEEL LIKE THERE MIGHT BE THE POTENTIAL FOR INCREASING IT A LITTLE BIT AND INCREASING THE CAPACITY OF THESE

COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS. >> ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE GOING TO PLAN AGAIN IN JULY IS TALK TO THE COUNCIL GENERALLY ABOUT WHAT THE STAFF HAS SEEN FROM A BUDGETARY STANDPOINT BECAUSE WE ENTER INTO THE BUDGET IN THAT TIME FRAME AND WORK HARD IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER. IT IS OUR PRACTICE NOW TO COME IN JULY TO THE COMMITTEE AS A WHOLE AND SAY WHAT THE ISSUES YOU CAN FORECAST TO US YOU WANT US TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER AS WE DO THE BUDGET DEVELOPMENT AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS IS ONE BUT I WANTED TO PROJECT TO YOU WE'LL BE AGENDING THE CONVERSATION.

>> CONSIDER THIS A SNEAK PEEK AS ONE OF OUR STATED PRIORITY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHING ELSE? OKAY. MR. MYERS.

>> I WANT TO GIVE A HEADS UP IN JULY THERE'LL BE TWO AMENDMENT TO THE SETBACKS AND THE SPACE NEXT TO SUPER GAINS AND THEY'LL NEED A VARIANCE FOR PARKING BUT IT'S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT BASED ON

[02:15:02]

WHAT THEY HAVE IN THE NEXT 90 DAYS.

WE'LL DO AN XCELLENT JOB OF EXPLAINING IT WHEN IT COMES UP IT'S JUST AN AHEAD -- A HEADSES UP.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. DOROTHY.

>> THANKS TO ALL WHO HELP IN THE ART SHOW THIS WEEKEND.

IT IS ALSO THE MCCONNEL ART CENTER ANNIVERSARY AND THEY MADE SURE EVERYBODY GOT CUPONS FOR -- COUPONS.

>> ONE BRIEF THING THE OLD WORTHINGTON PARTNERSHIP HAS INSTITUTED A SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE AND THEY'RE LOOKING AT DOING PROJECTS RELATED TO INITIATIVES THE PARTNERSHIP IS ALREADY ENGAGED IN TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABILITY AND LOOKING AT SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH THE BUSINESSES AND THE AREA.

THEY JUST HAD THEIR FIRST MEETING.

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT MAKING REUSABLE BAGS FOR THE FARMERS MARKET AND I IMAGINE OTHER INITIATIVES AND PROJECTS AND POTENTIALLY SOME ADVOCACY IN TERMS OF SUSTAINABILITY BUT I HAVE TALKED TO THEM ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT THEY ARE COMMUNICATING WITH THE CITY AND STAFF AND SO THAT WE'RE ALL WORKING TOWARDS THE SAME PURPOSE. WE CAN'T HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT IT SO I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA AND MAKING SURE WE'RE COMMUNICATING AND SHARING WHAT IT IS WE'RE WORKING ON SO I HAVE VOLUNTEERED TO PARTICIPATE ON THAT COMMITTEE AS WELL SO I CAN CONTINUE TO SERVE AS A LIAISON IN THAT CAPACITY.

THAT'S IT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE ALL RECEIVED AT OUR TABLE TONIGHT A LETTER FROM SOME RESIDENTS OF PROPRIETORS ROAD. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY GET RESPONSES SO WE DON'T EACH HAVE TO PREPARE RESPONSES.

WILL YOU DRAFT SOMETHING. >> WE ARE AWARE OF THE SITUATION

AND WORKING ON IT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT. AND THE OTHER THING I RECEIVED SOMETHING FROM THE CENTRAL MA MANAGERS ASSOCIATION THAT SEPTEMBER IS CHILDHOOD ANCER AWARENESS AND ASKING FOR RESOLUTIONS THE CHIDEHILL -- CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH AND DON'T KNOW IF STAFF WANTS TO PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER ALONG THAT LINE R NOT.

>> DO WE USUALLY DO THESE? I HAD A COUPLE PEOPLE ASKED ME.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HIS WAS ONE WEIRD.

>> WE WOULD TYPICALLY REFER THAT TO THE MAYOR FOR PROCLAMATION

OPPOSED TO A COUNCIL RESOLUTION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

[12. Executive Session]

ANYTHING ELSE? IF NOT, MS. KOWALCZYK MOVE TO GO TO EXECUTIVE EXCEPTION -- SESSION SECONDED BY MS. DOROTHY.
