[00:00:05]

I'M CALLING THE MEETING TO ORDER.

WILL YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLE. THE PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE OF THE

FLAG. >> THANK YOU.

PLEASE BE SEATED. OKAY.

WE'RE GOING TO START OFF OUR EVENING-WE'RE GOING TO START OFF

[5.A. Community Visioning Update]

WITH A SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF AN UPDATE.

>> THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING YOU-WE HAD TWO FORMAL-THE MAT CAME IN AND REALLY GAVE US A REALLY INTERACTIVE OPEN DISCUSSION HAT WAS APPROVED BY EVERYBODY. TOOK US THROUGH THE BUDGETS, THE TAX LIABILITIES. EVERYTHING OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS HERE. I THINK THE THING THAT WAS MOST IMPORTANT TO US WAS MAT REALLY TAKES INVOLVEMENT FROM THE COMMITTEE. HOW DO YOU DO THAT? HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT IT? THE ENVISIONING COMMITTEE TO ME, THAT'S OUR RESPONSIBILITY. HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS? HE TALKED ABOUT THE ADVISORY BOARDS AN THE COMMISSION-FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE SOME PRETTY THICK-OVERALL THE THEME OF HIS WAS THE QUALITY. ON THE 12TH WE HAD THE EXPECT AND HE PRESENTED TO US A IT'S GOING TO BE VERY IMPORTANT.

THAT'S PART OF THE SCOPE OF WORK, PHASE ONE.

PHASE THREE TALKS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL PIECE AND HOW WE'RE GOING TO WORK THAT ASPECT OF IT.

THE KEY TO THIS WHOLE THING THAT I THINK IS WORTH MENTIONING IS THE STATISTICS AND THE BUCKETS WITH SIMILAR COMMUNITIES.

HE IS COMPARING US TO UA AND GRAND VIEW HIGH.

THEY ARE INSIGHT SIDE OF THE TWO SEVENTY CORRIDOR.

THE ADJACENT COMMUNICATE COMMUNITYIES, THEY WERE ALL-WE GOT A REALLY GOOD RAW DATA. WE WERE PLEASED.

AS WE START TO GO FORWARD. A PIECE OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING WITH OUR CONSULTANT AND-I WANT TO GET THIS THING LAUNCHED ON A SOFT LAUNCH MID DECEMBER. WE CAN START EACHING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY AND WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF IDEAS THERE.

[00:05:02]

THE GOAL IS TO HAVE THIS THING READY TO GO JANUARY ONE.

WE'LL BE REPORTING THE NEWS BACK TO YOU IN DECEMBER.

THERE ARE VARIOUS SCOPE OF WORK UPDATES.

THIS IS A LIVING DOCUMENT. THAT'S WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO THIS. WE WILL HAVE FOR YOU THE FREQUENCILY ASKED QUESTIONS. THE COMMUNICATE PLAN.

WE ARE REALLY PROUD OF. THIS IS GOING TO BE A REALLY GREAT TALK HERE IN A LITTLE BIT. WE'RE ALSO WORKING ON THE DRAFT OF PUBLIC INPUT PLAN AS WELLS THE PAST DOCUMENT SUMMARIES.

THIRTY DOCUMENTS. WE CAN BOIL DOWN AND START TO TAKE ADVANTAGE AND START TO ASK QUESTIONS AND UTILIZE GOING FORWARD WHAT OUR FAIR CITY IS ABOUT.

I ALSO FELT LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE A STANDARD ALL THIRTEEN OF USERS, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A FIVE OR SIX SLIDE DECK WITH A-HEY, HERE TO TALK ABOUT. WE'LL HAVE THAT READY TO GO AND IT WILL BE THE PROVISIONING GOALS OF WHAT WE ANT TO ACCOMPLISH. I THINK THAT WILL BE HELPFUL.

WE'VE GOT A LOGO. WE'LL SHARE THAT WITH YOU NEXT TIME. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT WHAT WE'VE COME UP WITH THIS. SUFT JUST TO SUMMARIZE.

THE BIGGEST THING IS COMMUNICATION.

WE'VE GOT TO GET OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY AND COMMUNICATE.

WE'VE GOT TO BE NOT ONLY OUT THERE BUT WE'VE GOT TO BE CONSISTENT IN THE MESSAGE. AND WE ALSO WANT TO STAND UP IN FRONT OF YOU AND HOLDUP THIS AND GO, BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO MEASURE THIS ON A MONTH TO MONTH BASIS AND IT'S GOING TO HAVE EVERYBODY'S NAME ON IT. I-IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A ROAD MAP, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE ACCOUNTABILITY.

THE OTHER THING WE'VE DONE IS I'M WORKING CLOSELY WITH-WE HAVE THE COMMUNITY COMING OUT IN DECEMBER, WE'LL HAVE A FIVE OR SIX HUNDRED WORD, HEY THIS IS WHO WE ARE AND LET'S SEE IF WE CAN'T GET SOME ATTENTION THAT WAY.

WHICH LEADS ME TO-I THINK THAT'S REALLY THE KEY IF YOU'RE MAKING AN IMPACT ASKING QUESTIONS. DID COME UP WITH A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS. HER FIRST QUESTION WAS ARE YOU PLANNING TO DO THE KEY INFORMANT INTERVIEWS? YES, WE ARE. WE ARE THINKING THAT WE'RE GOING TO SET UP IN DECEMBER FOR SURVEYING IN JANUARY.

WE'LL GET THE NEW COUNCIL SET AND GO THROUGH EACH COUNCIL MEMBER. WE'LL DO IT INDIVIDUALLY.

I DON'T WANT TO BANG THE TABLE, THE COMMUNICATION PLAN, AND PUBLIC INPUT PLAN AND HAVE THAT READY TO GO BY THE END OF THE MONTH. AND THEN WE'LL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE INTERVIEWS. IT WILL BE COMING.

THE SECOND QUESTION WAS ASKED IS HOW WILL THE COMMUNITY DEVELOP QUESTIONS TO GATHER FEEDBACK? WE'VE ALREADY TALKED WITH LAUREN AND ASKED THEM TO COME BACK TO US WITH A COMPREHENSIVE BEST PRACTICES LIST OF QUESTIONS. RATHER THAN REINVENT THE WHEEL LET'S SEE WHAT THEY BRING TO US AND WE CAN REVISE AND MAKE OUR EFFORT. BACK TO YOUR QUESTION THE AGE FRIENDLY PIECE, WILL BE INCLUDED IN THAT DOCUMENT GOING FORWARD.

WITH THAT ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OF ME AT THAT POINT?

>> I DO KNOW THAT THE GREATER RURAL AREA REALTORS BE INVOLVED MAYBE HAVE A PRESENTATION MONTHLY ON THURSDAY MORNING.

I'D LOVE TO SEE SOME INPUT. WHAT WE'RE DOING, I MENTIONED TO ME WAS HOW CAN WE LEARN ABOUT THIS TO PASS IT ON.

>> GREAT. I'LL GET THE CONTACT INFORMATION. IN SUMMARY WE'RE MEETING TWICE A MONTH. WHAT'S COMING UP ON THE TWENTY THIRD OF DECEMBER WE DECIDED WE BETTER SAVE THAT FOR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. WE'RE IN THE GOING TO MEET.

I JUST WANT TO SAY IN CLOSING, I JUST CAN'T THANK ROB ENOUGH AND

[00:10:09]

EEJ ETHAN. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE HEAVY LIFTING THAT MUCH EASIER. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

>> HOLD ON ONE MINUTE. >> HAVE YOU HAD ANY MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN ATTENDANCE YET?

>> YEAH. THREE OR FOUR PEOPLE.

>> I HOPE THAT CHANGES. I HOPE EVENTUALLY YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR MEETINGS AT THE BOARD OF EDUCATION OR AUDITORIUM OR

SOMEWHERE. >> I WOULD LOVE THAT.

>> ARE YOU GETTING A GOOD COMMITMENT FROM ALL 13 OF THE MEMBERS. ARE THEY SHOWING UP AND DOING

ALL THE WORK? >> I THINK A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS IS I ASKED EVERYBODY AT THE MEETING ON THE TWENTY FIFTH WHAT YOU WANT TO DO? EVERYBODY HAS BEEN INTERACTIVE.

EVERYBODY WAS VERY ENGAGED AND NOT JUST ONE PERSON WAS ASKING QUESTIONS. EVERYBODY WANTS TO DO THEIR-AND RATHER THAN ME DICTATE OR SAY WHY DON'T YOU GO DO THIS.

I WANT THEM TO TELL ME. >> PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK-

>> I WILL DO THAT. I DIDN'T KNOW ANY OF THESE PEOPLE. HERE WE ARE DOING GOOD WORK.

THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION. >> I WANT TO THANK THE ENVISIONING COMMITTEE FOR ALL THE HARD WORK THEY ARE DOING.

FOR THE UPDATES, IF YOU NEED ANYTHING.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> I WILL CARRY THAT MESSAGE

[5.B. Worthington Gateway Update]

BACK. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

>> MOVING ON WE'RE GOING TO GET TO HAVE AN UPDATE ON THE

WORTHING TON GATEWAY PROJECT. >> WE'VE INVITED MR. PATEL WITH THE WITNESS GROUP TO GIVE AN UPDATE-IT'S BEEN SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN TALKED A LOT ABOUT LATERLY AND I THINK THERE'S SOME CHANGES THAT HE IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT.

I WANT TO INTRODUCE HIM. >> WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU.

THOSE OF US, DAN KATES WHO RAN FOR CITY COUNCIL THIS PAST ELECTION ALL OF US HAVE NEUM ROWS DOORS FOR WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE HOLIDAY INSIGHT. I KNOW WE'VE GOT A LARGE COMMUNITY THAT'S REAL INTERESTED.

>> THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF QUESTIONS AS TO WHAT'S HAPPENING AND I'VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF CALLS AS WELL AS TO WHAT THE UPDATES ARE. FROM THE TIME THAT OUR-WAS APPROVED NOW. I CAN GIVE YOU A GENERAL OVERVIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENED. I'VE PUT TOGETHER A POWER POINT.

THIS IS JUST SOME BACKGROUND ON THE WITNESS GROUP, SOME OF THE PRINCIPLES JUST FOR BACKGROUND. THESE ARE THE FLAGS THAT WE GENERALLY REPRESENT. OUR LARGEST IS WITH HILTON.

A LIST OF ALL OUR FRANCHISES. WE HAVE TWENTY ONE HILTON FRANCHISES. OUR PORTFOLIO IS GROWING T ABOUT SEVEN OR EIGHT. WE HAVE A TOTAL OF THIRTY FIVE DEVELOPED CURRENTLY. TODAY'S DISCUSSION WAS IT REALLY STEMS AROUND THE HOALT HOALT HE WILL.

I'VE DIVE INTO THIS. WE WERE NOT GIVEN APPROVAL TO THE SCEUTS WHEN WE HAD THE CONNECTION WHEN IT WAS APPROVED.

IT WAS A BIG SET BACK FOR US IN TERMS OF THE INVESTOR THAT WAS LINED UP FOR THIS PROJECT. WE FOUGHT IT REALLY HARD BECAUSE WE RAN THE MARKET FOR-WE KNOW THERE'S DEMAND IN WORTHING TON THAT IS-WE WENT TO THE HEAD IN ORLANDO TO THE CONFERENCE TO

[00:15:08]

MAKE OUR PLEA. WE FELT LIKE WE HAD O LEVERAGE OUR CASE. WITH SO MUCH HOTEL HAPPENING ALL OVER COLUMBUS AND THE STREAM LINE PERFORMANCE SUCH A DEVIATION FROM THE BRAND IN TERMS OF ARCHITECTURE YEURL DESIGN. THEY FELT LIKE THE HAM TON WOULDN'T BE SUPPORTED. WE KNOW THE MARKET, THEY JUST COULDN'T GET THE COMMITTEE TO APPROVE.

THAT WAS A BIG SET BACK. THAT IS NUMBER ONE ON THE AGENDA BECAUSE WE'RE OBVIOUSLY MARKET PERFORMANCE AND I'LL DIVE INTO THAT A LITTLE BIT. THE BRANDS WOULD THEN BE THE NEXT QUESTION. I'LL REVIEW KIND OF WHAT WE DID TO TRY TO-LET'S SEE HERE. HERE WE GO.

WE STARTED A DISCUSSION WITH HILTON.

WE STARTED OUR DISCUSSION WITH THEM IN TWO THOUSAND FOURTEEN.

WE HAD THE BIG INTERCHANGE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT THAT HAPPENED BUT THE OCCUPANCY FROM 16 TO NOW HAS REDUCED DRAMATICALLY. I THINK THAT'S THE NUMBER ONE REASON. THE RATE HAS INCREASED A LITTLE BIT, HOWEVER, WHEN YOU COMPARE THE RATE TO THE OTHER MARKETS THAT HAVE HAD A LOT OF HOTELS- HILTON WASN'T VERY MUCH BOTHERED BY THE OCCUPANCY. THAT WAS-THAT THE DEVELOPMENT COSTS. THEY FELT LIKE THIS WASN'T THE RIGHT BRAND. IT STATES THE EASONS ON OUR APPLICATION. IT'S LOSING ITS FLAG.

WHICH IS A STEP DOWN. YOU'RE GOING FROM HILT HILTON TO-THEY'VE SHUT DOWN TO DO A MAJOR RENOVATION.

YOU HAVE THE HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS WHICH IS WITH OUR PROJECT.

THEY'RE NOT A CORPORATE HOAT HOTEL.

WE FEEL LIKE IT'S A CORPORATE MARKET.

WE'RE OKAY WITH IT ACROSS THE WAY.

IT'S A COOKIE CUTTER PIECE, WE'RE OKAY WITH THAT.

I'M HAPPY THAT IT'S GOING BECAUSE AT LEAST THERE'S SOME-THAT'S A BIG EXODUS IN PERSPECTIVE.

>> ARE YOU GOING INTO YOUR EXPLANATION AS TO WHY THERE'S A STEEP DECLINE IN OCCUPANCY RATES.

>> A LOT OF OLD PRODUCT. THE OCCUPANCY IS JUST NEGATIVE.

IF YOU HAVE TWO HUNDRED FIFTY ROOMS TO FILL.

THAT'S MANY MORE ROOMS. STAYING IN AND DRIVING INTO WORTHING TON-IT'S MAINLY BECAUSE THEY WANT REWARDS POINTS.

THEY'LL STAY AT THE RESIDENCE INN NEXT TO A RAILROAD TRACK.

THE PROCESS IS JUST CHIZ CHISELING AWAY.

[00:20:01]

THAT'S WHY THE DECLINE. THESE PRODUCTS AND OWNERS ARE NOT PUTTING ANY MONEY INTO THEM. NONE OF THESE HOTELS ARE WITHIN THE SITE OF WORTHING ON CITY LIMIT.

WE WERE WITH THESE DEVELOPMENT COSTS BECAUSE WE KNEW WHAT WE WERE GETTING INTO WHEN E GOT THE ELEVATION APPROVED.

OUR-THIS ASSET WILL PERFORM JUST AS WELL AS ANY PROPERTY.

WE HAVE A HAM TON THAT'S BRAND NEW IN A MARKET THAT'S IN DEMAND. THERE'S DEMAND.

HILTON'S RATIONALE WAS YOU'RE PUTTING AN ALL BRICK BUILDING INTO A STUB ONE HUNDRED MARKET, WE CAN'T SUPPORT THAT.

THAT WAS THE BIG SET BACK. THEY DID AN ANALYSIS ON PROPERTY VERSUS SO OBVIOUSLY THERE WOULD BE A DIFFERENCE THERE.

THIS IS ALL RATIONALE THAT HILTON HAS TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION THAT I'M PRESENTING TO YOU THEN WE STARTED SHOPPING. AT THAT POINT WE WERE KIND OF WITH NO BRAND. WE WENT TO MAYOR YOT.

THEY PASSED FOR THE SAME REASONS THAT THE HAM TON PASSED.

THEY ARE BIMEDDING THE EXPRESS ACROSS THE STREET.

HILTON PRESENTED ONE OPTION AND THAT WAS THE TRUE.

IT'S A BRAND NEW HOTEL THAT JUST LUNCHED THERE'S ABOUT ONE HUNDRED OPEN IN THE UNITED STATES.

THERE'S TWO HUNDRED IN THE PIPELINE.

IT'S A HOTEL THAT'S A DIRECT COMPETITOR TO THE HOLIDAY EXPRESS. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET STAYS FROM CORPORATE UESTS WHO WANT HILTON POINTS BUT IN A ORE MODERN TYPE OF HOTEL WHEREAS THE HAMPTON IS MORE OF YOUR-YOU GET THE HAMPTON BRAND SO YOU GET THE SAME HAMPTON ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

IT'S A MORE TRADITIONAL HOTEL STAY.

STILL FRESH AND MODERN. THIS IS PUSHING THE ENVELOPE.

THAT'S WHAT THIS BRAND IS. ALSO IT KATEORS TO LEISURE.

IT'S GOING TO CATER TO YOUR IT EXECUTIVES, MILLENNIAL EXECUTIVES ARE GOING TO REALLY LIKE THIS BRAND.

I'LL GET INTO THE TRUE IN A MINUTE.

THIS IS THE BRAND THEY OFFERED. FROM WHERE WE STOOD IT WAS A HUGE BECAUSE AT ONE POINT-ALL THE OTHER PLANNED BRANDS.

[00:25:06]

WE'RE HAPPY WITH THAT. THESE ARE MODIFIED TRUE ELEVATIONS. THE ORIGINAL TRUE IS ALL-AND A LOT MORE STRAIGHTER LINES. I TRIED TO CHOOSE RENDERINGS THAT WERE BRICK PRODUCT. WE JUST BUILT A RESIDENCE IN IN THAT MARKET THE TRUE IS ABOUT TO OPEN.

THERE'S A TRUE BEING BUILT AT COLUMBUS AIR AIRPORT CURRENTLY.

WHEN HILTON LAUNCHES A BRAND-THERE ARE FOUR HUNDRED OPEN ACROSS THE KUNT RI. THAT'S THE POWER OF THE HILTON BRAND. THIS PRODUCT IS WELL UNDER WAY IN TERMS OF-ANY QUESTIONS ON TRUE?

>> I'M CURIOUS THE NAME TRU ANY ORIGIN?

>> I DON'T BELIEVE IT'S TIED TO THE TRUMAN FAMILY.

I THINK THEY-IT'S A PLAY ON BUILDING TRUST AND REMAINING TRU TO OUR BRAND. WHICH THEY HAVE BEEN VERY RIGID ON THEIR DESIGN EXPECTATIONS. IT'S A LITTLE IT OF BALANCING ACT WHEN WORKING WITH LEE AND TEE BUT I THINK WE'RE STRIKING A

GOOD BALANCE SO FAR. >> COULD YOU BRIEFLY DESCRIBE HOW TRU CATERS TO THE MILLENNIAL TYPE OF CUSTOMER?

IS IT THE MUSIC- >> THE ROOMS ARE A LITTLE SMALLER THAN YOUR AVERAGE ROOM BUT IT'S NOT LIKE NEW YORK CITY SMALL. THEIR FOCUS IS ON PUBLIC SPACE.

WORK PODS. IN THE PUBLIC SPACE HAVE A MEETING TO SIT DOWN WITH YOUR LAPTOP FOR FOUR OR FIVE HOURS AND WORK. IT'S ABOUT GETTING OUT OF YOUR ROOM AND GETTING INTO HE LOBBY TO WORK.

NOT EVEN THE MILLENNIAL CLIENTS BUT CORPORATE CLIENTS PERIOD.

PEOPLE ARE WORK USING DIFFERENT AREAS WHERE A LOT OF PEOPLE WORK IN THAT TRADITION MORE. WHEN THEY ARE TRAVELING THEY JUST WANT TO PLUG IN. IT'S COMPLETELY CATERED TO SERVE BREAKFAST BUT AT THE SAME TIME TURN INTO A WORK SPACE

THROUGHOUT THE DAY. >> DOES IT ONLY DO BREAKFAST?

>> IT ONLY DOES BREAKFAST. THIS WHOLE DEVELOPMENT IS ON THE RETAIL ON THE OUT SIDE. IN THE PARKING LOT THE GUESTS HAVE ACCESS TO MULTIPLE DINING CHOICES.

I'M NOT GOING TO GO THROUGH THIS ENTIRE SLIDE.

THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE TO THIS SLIDE IS CHANGING THE NARRATIVE.

IF WE CAN MAKE THIS TRU A SUCCESS, IT WILL STUR FURTHER HOTEL MARKET. NEW PRODUCT OLLOWS.

YOU'LL SEE IT. POLARIS, NEW PRODUCT.

FOLLOWING. IT'S THE NATURE OF COMPETITION.

WITH THE TRU WE'LL BE ABLE TO PROVE TO HILTON THAT WE WERE RIGHT IN OUR THOUGHT PROCESS, THEY'LL GRANT US A SECONDARY PROPERTY. MARRIOTT WILL SEE THE RESULTS.

LET'S DO A NEW PLACE IN THE MARKET.

I THINK THAT THAT'S THE NARRATIVE ABOUT THE WORTHING TON

[00:30:06]

MARKET. THEY JUST COULDN'T STRIKE A HOTEL YET. I THINK THAT THERE'S MORE OPPORTUNITIES THAT CAN BE HAD IF WE DEVELOP A HILTON PRODUCT THAT WILL SHINE. DEVELOPING A HILTON PRODUCT THAT WILL SHINE IN A MARKET THAT ALREADY HAS DEMAND AND HAS A RESTAURANT OPTIONS AND OTHER OPTIONS WITHIN THE PARKING LOT.

WE'RE BUILDING A DESTINATION INTO A SUCCESS.

THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. WE'VE DONE THAT AND-WE HAVE A NEW SET OF INVESTORS. THAT TOOK US A MINUTE TO KIND OF WORK THROUGH IN TERMS OF REFLAG AND FINDING-THIS IS A CONSTRUCTION TIME LINE AT THIS POINT.

WE SUBMITTED OUR INTERSECTION PLANS TO THE NGINEERING DEPARTMENT SEPTEMBER 21 AND ALSO OUR ON SITE PLANS ON OCTOBER 4TH. WE'RE WOKING WITH THEIR RESPONSES AND HAVE A GREEN LIGHT TO START OUR MOVING DIRT.

THAT'S OUR GOAL. WE SET OUR CIVIL START DATE TO BE JANUARY. IF WE CAN WORK THROUGH AND GET THE APPROVAL FOR THE CIVIL, WE WANT TO START RIGHT AT THE NEW YEAR IN TERMS OF PUSHING DIRT AND GETTING EVERYTHING GOING.

I HAVE, BY BUILDING, THESE ARE THE CONSTRUCTION-WE'RE GOING TO STAGE IT BASED ON BUILDING. WE'RE GOING TO START GOING DOWN THE LINE ON WILSON BRIDGE. THAT'S THE GOAL.

THE OTHER KEY CHANGE HERE IS THAT STREET PIECE WAS ALWAYS UP IN THE AIR. FOR A WHILE THERE, UP UNTIL-THIS WHOLE HOTEL THING CHANGES. IN ORDER TO GET THROUGH APPROVALS AND JUST GET THIS PROJECT DONE.

HIGH STREET THERE IN SOMEBODY ELSE'S HANDS TO TRY TO GET APPROVED AND BUILT. WE DECIDED WE'RE JUST GOING TO HIRE OUR OWN. WE'RE GOING TO SUBMIT BOTH AND

ADD THAT ONTO OUR CONSTRUCTION. >> ON THE 12TH YOU WERE GOING TO HAVE A VOLT AND DO YOU HAVE AN APPLICATION PENDING FOR THE

12TH. >> WE WILL.

HILTON IS GOING TO COME. REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT PERSON AND THEIR CONSTRUCTION AND THE BRAND ET CETERA.

THE BOARD CAN ACTUALLY HEAR FROM HILTON ITSELF.

SO WE'RE ALSO SUBMITTING A SUBMITTAL FOR-

>> WE ANTICIPATE. I THINK IN HERE WE PUT ARB, I HAVE DECEMBER 12TH, JANUARY 9TH AND 12TH SLATED.

AS LONG AS THE CIVIL IS GOING AT TIME TO GET APPROVED AND GET THE BUILDING DRAWINGS DONE WHILE THE CIVIL IS STILL GETTING DONE, RIGHT? WE BUY OURSELVES TIME.

>> WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF CIVIL?

>> IT'S ALL THE UNDERGROUND STORM WATER, GETTING THE DIRT READY. IT'S BASICALLY GETTING THE LAND READY, ALL THE UTS BEEN RAN. ALL OF THE STUFF THAT INVOLVES DIRT AND UTILITIES AND DRAINAGE WHICH WAS A BIG ISSUE ON THIS SITE, RIGHT? ALL OF THAT STARTS IN JANUARY AND GET THAT GOING. BUT WE NEED TO GET ALL THAT DONE BEFORE WE START CONSTRUCTION. THOSE ARE THE TIME LINES.

WE ANTICIPATE THE TOTE HE WILL STARTING AROUND AUGUST AND

[00:35:08]

ENDING IN OCTOBER. THE HOTEL WILL BE THE LAST PIECE TO OPEN. THE RETAIL BUILDINGS WILL HAVE ALREADY BEEN DONE, THEY'LL BE SCREENING THE HOTEL.

THE PARKING LOT AND THE EXTERIOR WILL BE DONE.

A LOT OF THE WORK ON THE TAIL END-WE HOPE TO TIE ALL THAT UP.

THIS IS OUR TIMEFRAME IN TERMS OF CONSTRUCTION.

IT REALLY BOILS DOWN TO REALLY JUST GETTING OUR CIVIL PLAN IN, APPROVED AND GOING. IT IS IN SO NOW IT'S HOPEFULLY, WE'VE GOT SOME COMMENTS BACK, WE'RE GOING TO AGGRESSIVELY WORK THROUGH THOSE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE MONTHS.

>> JUST TO KNIT PICK I'M SURE THAT SECOND BULLET WAS MEANT TO

READ 2019, NOT 2020. >> YES.

>>

>> HOW WE MANAGE ALL OF HAT. >> THAT WAS PART OF THE PUD

PROCESS. >> WE HAVE DISCUSSED IT-

>> NOW WE'RE PUTTING-NOW IT'S THAT POINT WHERE WE HAVE TO REALLY GET THOSE DETAILS SORTED OUT.

THERE'S A LOT TO SORT OUT BETWEEN THE INTERSECTION AND THE SITE. THERE IS QUITE A BIT TO DO.

I THINK IT REALLY BOILS DOWN, I TALKED TO MATT EVEN BEFORE THIS MEETING OF US REALLY KIND OF REALLY PROVIDING THE SOLUTIONS WITH OUR TEAMS TO EFFECTIVELY DRIVE THIS EFFICIENTLY AND BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF MOVING PARTS AN PIECES ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THERE'S AN INTERCHANGE INVOLVED, STORM INVOLVED, AND THERE'S IN TOTAL WE HAVE SIX BUILDINGS, RIGHT? IT'S ALL CONCURRENTLY HAPPENING. THERE'S A LOT TO COORDINATE.

WE'VE REALLY GEARED UP OUR CONSTRUCTION TEAM AND WE'RE READY TO GO. NOW IT'S JUST ABOUT KIND OF MAKING SURE EVERYONE IS ON THE SAME PAGE.

>> I KNOW IT'S BEEN A GREAT DEAL OF TIME.

THOSE OF US WHO DON'T GO THE MP C MEETINGS WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE AND WHAT SORT OF AMBIANCE IS SUPPOSED TO BE.

BEHIND THE BUILDING THERE WILL BE RESTAURANTS AND PATIOS AND SOME SORT OF AMBIANCE THAT MAKES PEOPLE SAY THIS IS A REALLY COOL DESTINATION PLACE. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE THAT

INCLUDE LOGOS. >> WE HAVEN'T DONE 3-D RENDERINGS OF THE RETAIL BUILDINGS AND THE TOTE HE WILL JUST YET. ONE IS APPROVED THROUGH ARB AND A HIGH STREET PIECE THROUGH ARB THEN WE CAN FOCUS IN ON A LITTLE MORE OF A MARKET RENDERING THAT CAN A, SHOW THE COMMUNITY WHAT IS TO COME BUT ALSO TENANTS THAT WE'RE TRYING TO LEASE TO TO GET A VISION OF WHAT IT'S GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

>> ONE OF MY CONCERNS IS IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE BRINGING TENANTS IN, THEY HAVE A FEELING THAT GRANTED THERE'S THIS FRONT SIDE ON WILSON BRIDGE BUT THE BACKSIDE IS WHERE A LOT OF NEIGHBORS AND PEOPLE IN THE AREA, YOU WANT TO FEEL LIKE YOU'RE NOT SITTING-IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE THE BACK OF A BUILDING.

>> NO. AIR BB WOULD NOT LET US GET AWAY WITH ANY LACK OF AMBIANCE ON THE BACKSIDE.

WHAT YOU SEE ON THE WILSON BRIDGE SIDE.

IT'S THE SAME LEVEL OF ETAIL ON THE INTERIOR COURT AS WELL.

>> LET'S HOPE WE GET SOME RESTAURANTS THAT AREN'T PIZZA.

>> ABSOLUTELY. WE'RE NOT EVEN TALKING TO A PIZZA COMPANY AT ALL. IT'S SURPRISING.

THEY'VE SEEN A SLOW DOWN ACTUALLY.

>> THE SITE TREMENDOUSLY. THIS IS ALMOST I THINK THIS IS

ABOUT 60% OF WHAT THE AMTON WAS. >> I'M JUST THINKING BACK TO THE VERY ORIGINAL CONCEPTUAL DRAWINGS OF WHAT WAS LIKE EASTON

[00:40:03]

TOWN KIND OF PATIO PACE SPACE DO YOU THINK YOU HAVE THIS SMALLER FOOT PRINT IS GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO DO A LITTLE MORE OF THAT IN

THE INTERIOR SPACE. >> THERE IS MORE GREEN SPACE AS A RESULT. IT ALL-THE STORM CALCULATIONS CHANGE AS A RESULT OF THE SMALLER VIEW PARK.

I THINK-IT WASN'T LIKE- >> WHAT PART OF THAT FROM THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT IS COMING BACK IN?

>> IT'S NOT FULL BLOWN BUT I THINK IT'S BETTER THAN THE PLAN WAS THAT APPROVED THROUGH THE POD PROCESS.

THERE'S A LITTLE MORE BREATHING ROOM ON THE SITE.

THAT WILL BE PRESENTED AT ARB. I WAS TRYING TO GET TO YOU TONIGHT, WE COULDN'T PULL IT OFF.

>> THIS IS OUR TIME LINE. THE TIME LINE THERE IS WE'LL START-WE WANT TO AVOID THE WINTER CONDITIONS, ALSO THERE'S A LOT MORE THERE. WE HOPE TO FINISH BY SEPTEMBER- ONCE YOU PLACE THE ORDER.

WE HOPE THIS SAME TIME IN TERMS OF THE INTERSECTION LIGHTS AND

ALL OF THAT. >> IF THE BUILDING IS DONE.

THE OUTER BUILDING IS DONE- >> ALL OF THOSE WILL BE DONE BY SEPTEMBER AS WELL. ON WILSON BRIDGE.

WE WANT TO GET THAT DONE. IN 2021.

JUST FROM A SHEER CONSTRUCTION TIMEFRAME THE HOTEL JUST TAKES

SO MUCH LONGER. >> DID YOU WANT TO COME UP? NO? IF ANY COMMUNITY MEMBERS HAVE

SOME THOUGHTS- >> I NEED A FEW SECONDS TO COOL

OFF. >> PLEASE COME UP TO THE MICROPHONE BECAUSE WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE LIVE STREAMING.

WE'LL HAVE YOU FILL OUT A SHEET AF WARDS.

>> I'M WONDERING IF YOU COULD EXPLAIN WHAT THE INTERSECTION MEANS. ARE YOU CREATING A NEW

INTERSECTION. >> I CAN TALK ABOUT THAT.

THIS IS THE INTERSECTION THAT IS ON WILSON BRIDGE.

WE'RE REALIGNING THE LIGHT THERE THAT GOES INTO THE MALL.

WE'RE REALIGNING IT TO CONNECT WITH OUR ENTERRANS OFF WILSON BRIDGE. ALL OF THAT GETS LINEED UP AND MOVES OVER TO CONNECT WITH THE LIGHT.

WE'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING AT KAREN OTHER THAN IMPROVEMENTS.

WE'RE ADDING SOME DECORATIVE PAIFERS, ADDING NEW TRAFFIC LIGHT POLES. THAT'S BASICALLY JUST MORE OF AN UPGRADE TO THE NTERSECTION TO BEAUTIFY IT.

>> KODA HAS AGREED TO PUT IN A BUS SHELTER AT THE KAREN AVENUE

BUS STOP. >> WHAT WAS THE QUESTION?

>> IT'S GOING TO BE ONE ELEVEN THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT BUILDING.

THE DETAILS OF THE BUILDING ET CETERA, WE'LL PRESENT AT ARB.

WE'RE LOOKING AT IT TO BE A MULTI TENANT BUILDING PROBABLY AT MAX, FOUR TENANTS. WE'RE FOCUSING IN ON HIGHER END TENANTS THAT CAN PAY THE HIGHEST RENTS.

WE'RE NOT LOOKING FOR YOUR CELL PHONE USER AT THIS LOCATION.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR MORE OF A GOURMET RESTAURANT, CHIROPRACTOR OFFICE. NOT ALL FOOD BUT SOMETHING MORE PREMIUM FOR IT TO GAIN THE HIGH STREAK.

>> ANYBODY ELSE? >> OBVIOUSLY I'M GOING TO COME

[00:45:05]

UP HERE AND TALK. HAVE I HAD SOME PROBLEMS HERE, YES. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE SHELL GAME PLAYED. WE'RE SEEING ONE RIGHT NOW.

LET'S TALK ABOUT HIGH STREET. WE'RE GOING TO PUT ONE TENANT ALONG HIGH STREET. NOW IT'S FOUR TENANTS.

WE'RE CHANGING THE WHOLE IDEA OF THE HOTEL.

OBVIOUSLY WHEN TALKING TO YOU GUYS, QUESTIONS ABOUT TRU, YOU NEED TO ASK ABOUT TRU. CAN YOU SAY MOTEL SIX, BEST WESTERN. I'M A PILOT.

I STAY ON THE ROAD MAYBE ONE R TWO DAYS A EAR.

I STAY IN TRU BECAUSE I HAVE TO STAY IN TRU, NOT A ROOM TODAY BUT THERE'S A ROOM TOMORROW. I WILL MOVE TODAY SO I CAN GO STAY IN ANOTHER HOTEL TOMORROW. THE REASON HE DEVELOPED TRU, HE IS RIGHT. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE MILLENNIAL CROWD. GOOD TERMS. THE BOTTOM LINE ON IT IS KIDS GROW UP AND THEY'RE GOING TO WANT SOME OF THEIR LUXURIES. THEY ARE GOING TO WANT A BIGGER ROOM. INSTEAD OF OING TO THE HAMPTON FOR HE TRU, IT HOULD BE A CONRAD.

EVERY PERSON LIVING DOWN HERE IS GOING TO TAKE A CUT.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT HIS DRAINAGE.

YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU FINALLY CAME TO MY HOUSE AND TOOK A LOOK.

HOW BAD WAS THAT. I TELL YOU EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

HE TORE THE BUILDING DOWN, OKAY. SAID DRAINAGE NOT A PROBLEM.

EVERY SINGLE WEEK WHEN I'M HOME I HAVE TO GO DOWN WITH FIVE GALLON BUCKETS BECAUSE OF HOW HE IS TEARING UP MY PROPERTY WITH THE DRAINAGE. LAST YEAR HE CAME BY MY HOUSE AND HE SENT HIS GUY OVER, HE SAID HEY, LISTEN WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET AROUND TO LAYING SMIT. WE'LL PUT DOWN A COAT OF ASPHALT TO SEAL THIS STUFF UP. SMJ SMOOTH IT UP.

I CAN LIVE WITH THAT FOR A COUPLE YEARS UNTIL YOU GET AROUND TO DOING WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO.

LAST YEAR AT CHRISTMAS TIME, WE COULDN'T EVEN CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS BECAUSE HE WAS TEARING UP THE GROUND.

AM I ANGRY? NO, I'M NOT ANGRY.

TURN AROUND AND COME IN HERE AND FIND OUT HE IS GOING TO PUT A TRU IN THERE ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE THAT'S GOING ON.

I HAVE MORE THAN THREE GENERATIONS IN MY HOUSE.

OKAY? MY WIFE HAS COME DOWN THAT DRIVEWAY, OKAY? I'VE HAD FRIENDS COME DOWN MY DRIVEWAY. I HAVE TO COME OUT OF THE HOUSE AND ESCORT THEM OUT OF THE DRIVEWAY BECAUSE I CAN'T DO IT.

ALL HE HAS DONE IS CHANGE THE DRAINAGE FOR TWENTY YEARS, THAT'S A LIE. I'VE ONLY LIVED IN THE HOUSE FOR SEVENTEEN AND A HALF. FOR SEVENTEEN AND A HALF YEARS HE HAS SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYED THE PROPERTY AROUND EVERYBODY THAT LIVES IN THAT AREA. HE HAS TOLD ME ON MULTIPLE OCEAN OCCASIONS THAT HE IS GOING TO COME IN AND SOLVE THE PROBLEM-HE CARES ABOUT PUTTING ANOTHER PIECE OF PROPERTY UP THERE.

HE IS GOING TO PUT A TRU IN THERE.

EXCUSE ME. I TALKED ABOUT THREE GENERATION NZ THAT DRIVEWAY AND SHE TWISTED HER ANKLE.

MY DAUGHTER WENT DOWN THAT DRIVEWAY.

HE PUTS A KIM COAT OUT THERE. EVERYDAY I'M OUT THERE SHOVELING GRAVEL BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT THAT COMES ON MY PROPERTY.

MY AUNT CAME DOWN THAT RIVEWAY AND TWISTED HER KNEE.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, THE THING ON TOP OF HIS DESK AND HAVE A NICE WORD WITH HIM IS THE FACT THAT MY GRANDDAUGHTER WENT DOWN THAT

[00:50:04]

DRIVEWAY AND TOOK HER OUT. DOES HE CARE ABOUT WORTHINGTON? HE IS GOING TO GET MAD AT ME FOR SAYING THIS AND THE FACT THAT I SAID IT IN PUBLIC ONCE BEFORE. HE SAID YOU GOT A DEAL ON YOUR HOUSE. I SAID NO, WE HAVEN'T GOT A DEAL ON OUR OUSE. I'M WILLING TO WORK WITH YOU.

I'M WILLING TO BE AMKNEABLE. MAKE SURE YOU DO THE RIGHT THING. HE SAID I WILL CONCRETE YOUR DRIVEWAY. I WILL MAKE SURE THAT GETS DONE.

HE STOOD IN FRONT OF YOU, THE COUNCIL AND SAID THE SAME THING.

OKAY? AND NEXT TIME HE CAME ALONG AND HE SAID OH, I'M NOT GOING TO-I'LL PAY FOR PART OF IT OR HALF OF IT. MY GRANDDAUGHTER WENT DOWN THE DRIVEWAY AND TOOK A SPILL ON ONE OF THOSE DAMN HOLES.

NOW, WHO IS HE LOOKING OUT FOR? DO YOU THINK HE IS LOOKING OUT FOR HIMSELF OR THE PEOPLE OF WORTHINGTON? AN YOU-YOU GUYS WENT DOWN AND KNOCKED ON DOORS.

HOW MANY EOPLE DID YOU HEAR FROM? IT'S NOT ONLY ME AND MY NEIGHBOR NEXT DOOR OR ACROSS THE STREET.

IT'S NOT THESE GOOD PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON THE CORNER.

IT'S THE BOARD. I THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE DOING HERE HEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THIS IN WORTHINGTON.

YOU GOT A CHANCE TO MAKE IT RIGHT.

I'M SORRY. I APOLOGIZE.

>> THANK YOU. YOU HONESTLY EXPRESSED YOUR THOUGHTS AND WE APPRECIATE THAT. CAN YOU MAKE SURE YOU FILL OUT ONE OF THE YELLOW FORMS. THANKS.

>> ANY OTHER THINGS FROM OUNCIL MEMBERS? MR. PATEL WE WANT TO THANK YOU ALSO FOR COMING IN.

I KNOW WE'VE HAD MANY RESIDENTS HERE TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.

I'M SURE WE'LL BE HEARING MORE AS TIME MOVES ON AND OME OF THE DIRT STARTS TO FLY. MOVING ONTO THE CONSENT AGENDA.

[6. Consent Agenda]

YOU HAD SOMETHING THAT YOU WANTED REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA. WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH AND READ ALL THE CONSENT ITEMS. THE REASON WE DO A CONSENT AGENDA FROM TIME TO TIME IS BECAUSE THE ITEMS ARE SO ROUTINE TO RUN THE MEETINGS MORE EFFICIENTLY WE RUN THE AGENDA.

IN ORDER >> NANCY: NUMBER FORTY TWO TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN.

IS AMENDED TO-UNAPPROPRIATED BALANCE TO PAY THE COST OF THE FIRE-ALL RELATED EXPENSES TO DETERMINE AND PROCEED WITH PROJECT OVER SIX NINETY EIGHT- NINETEEN.

RESOLUTIONS ARE INTRODUCED BY APPROVAL OF THE NOVEMBER 4TH TWO THOUSAND NIEFN TEAN MEETING. POLICY PERMIT AND CHANGE IN MEMBERSHIP. THE RECOMMENDATION IS TO NOT REQUEST A HEARING. ANY COUNCIL MEMBERS HAVE ANY ITEM REMOVED FROM THE AGENDA? CONSENT AGENDA? DOES ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WANT TO COMMENT ON ANY OF THESE ITEMS? IF NOT I APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA IS MOVED BY-THE CONSENT AGENDA HAS BEEN APPROVED.

[7.A. Ordinance No. 44-2019 Appropriation - Easement Acquisition for Northbrook Relief Sewer Improvements]

BUDGET BY-APPROPRIATED BALANCE TO IT PAY THE COST OF EASELS

RELATED PROJECTS. >> YOU HIRED US TO STUDY VARIOUS SEWER SHEDS AND STUDIES TO COMPLETE IN A TIME LINE.

WE COMPLETED A STUDY SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND ONE OF THE PROJECTS WAS RELIEF SEWER IMPROVEMENTS.

I'M GOING TO TURN THIS-THIS IS IMPORTANT TO DISCUSS BEFORE EASEMENT OF AND STAGING FOR MR. LIND SI.

>> SENT THAT PARTICULAR STAGING AREA IN ORDER TO PROCEED WITH THIS PROJECT WE NEEDED THE VARIOUS SEWER PIPE THAT'S GOING TO BE, ORIGINALLY WE DISCUSSED WITH THE PROPERTY OWNER THROUGH ENGINEERING EXISTING BLACKTOP FOR THAT PURPOSE AND BE HANDLING THE REPAVING OF THAT. WE WEREN'T ABLE TO REACH A SPECIFIC AT THAT TIME TO-IT'S PART OF ADDITIONAL TERMS OF SIGNING THOSE EASEMENTS, ENGAGED-TO DO THAT ACQUISITION WORK. THAT'S PART OF WHAT THEY DO BY TRAINING IN A CAPACITY WAS SUCCESSFUL-OPINION BASED ON THE

[01:00:41]

TOTAL COST TO PROCEED DUE TO STAGING AND THINGS AS WELL AS THE COST IF WE HAD GONE DOWN THE APPROPRIATION PROCESS MUCH LIKE WE'VE EARNED THE GATEWAY PROJECT ITSELF DETERMINES THE COST TO THAT. IT'S MY OPINION THAT THIS REASONABLE RESOLUTION TO ACQUIRE WHAT WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD FOR THE PROJECT AND RECOMMENDATION THAT THE COUNCIL APPROVE THE

ORDINANCE FOR THAT AMOUNT. >> QUESTIONS FOR THE PROJECT ITSELF MR. WHITE WOULD BE AVAILABLE.

>> ANY QUESTIONS? >> REFRESH OUR MEMORY ON WHAT YOU'RE DOING EXACTLY IN THAT AREA.

>> THIS WILL RUN THE NEXT PHASE OF THE SECTION UP THROUGH THE CEMETERY AND BRING IT UP THROUGH CANYON BROOK.

RIGHT ACROSS THIS PARCEL TO CANYON BROOK SO THAT IT'S PART OF THE CEMETERY SEWER, THE DIFFICULTIES WE'VE HAD.

HIS PROPERTY PARTICULARLY HAS THAT PERMANENT EASEMENT FOR HIS SEWER, TEMPORARY EASEMENT FOR CONSTRUCTION ON THE SEWER, STAGING MATERIALS, GRAVEL AND PIPE MATERIALS, THOSE SORTS OF THINGS SO IT ALLOWS US TO DO IT EFFICIENTLY AND MANAGE THE PROJECT THROUGH THERE. IT WILL BE RELATIVELY-

>> IN THE MEMO TOO, MEETINGS FOR ADDITIONAL EASEMENTS ON OTHER

PROPERTY. >> ONE MORE EASEMENT THAT NEEDS TO BE ACQUIRED. I CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY.

ONE MORE NEEZS TO BE ACQUIRED. IT'S FULLY DESIGNED, IT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN TO BID ONCE WE GET ALL THE EASEMENTS.

>> NOT REALLY RELEVANT TO THE SPECIFIC ISSUE JUST CURIOUS, ONCE THIS STARTS, WHAT'S THE IMPACT TO THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

>> IT VARIESIES. SOME AREAS WILL BE BORED ON

THEIR PROPERTY. >> DO YOU HAVE A PLAN FOR

NOTIFYING RESIDENTS? >> ABSOLUTELY.

WE'LL GET TO THAT POINT. YES.

>> NEW LEGISLATION-AUTHORIZING THE REAL ESTATE INTEREST

[8.A. Resolution No. 65-2019 NE Gateway Right of Way Acquisition (Parcel 9)]

INVOLVING PARCEL NINE FOR THE NORTH WEST GATEWAY, PROJECT NUMBER 602-14. I'LL INTRODUCE AND NEED A

SECOND. >> I'LL TURN IT IT OVER TO

MR. LINDSEY. >> THANK YOU.

I THINK IT WAS JUST PARCEL 14, I WON'T GIVE THE DEAL ABOUT THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY RIGHT AWAY. THROUGH THE ACQUISITION PROCESS.

NOT THROUGH SUCCESSFUL KNOWING OASHATION BY THE CITIES RIGHT AWAY AK ACQUISITION CONSULTANT AS APPROVED BY THE ODOT ADMINISTRATION. FORTY FOUR THOUSAND-FAIR MARKET VALUE ESTIMATE DONE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PROJECT FOR A

[01:05:04]

TOTAL AMOUNT OF ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY THOUSAND O ACQUIRE THOSE NECESSARY REAL ESTATE INTERESTS FOR THIS PARTICULAR PARCEL ONCE AGAIN BASED ON THE COST OF THE APPROPRIATE PROCESS AS AN ALTERNATIVE THIS IS A REASONABLE RESOLUTION SO THAT THE PROJECT

CAN MOVE FORWARD. >> COUNCIL QUESTIONS.

IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY I AI.

>> AS A COMMITTEE AS A WHOLE IN JANUARY BRING OUR CONSULTANTS, COSINE OF GIVE AN-EITHER MOVED IT IN PROCESS OR OBTAINED ALL OF THE PROPERTIES THAT ARE NECESSARY-YOU'VE AUTHORIZED A COUPLE OF BUILDINGS WHICH WILL BE WATER LINE PROJECT THAT'S PRECEDING-THAT HAS BEEN THE CHALLENGING BUT IMPORTANT.

I SAW A TON OF OVING PARTS. MR. WHITE HAS BEEN WORKING EXCEPTIONALLY HARD TO MOVE FORWARD ALONG WITH MR. LINDSEY AND OTHERS. IT'S A GOOD TIME TO GET AN UPDATE OF A TIME LINE AND WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT.

[9.A.I. Follow Up - Proposed 2020 Operating Budget & Proposed 2020-2024 Capital Improvements Program]

DAYS OF PROPOSED OPERATED IN A PROPOSED FIVE YEAR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PLAN. A NUMBER OF PRESENTATIONSIVE FIVE YEAR FORECAST FROM MOST OF OUR DEPARTMENT DIRECTORS.

LAST WEEK WE COMPLETED OUR FORMAL PRESENTATIONS.

REALLY TONIGHT IN THE CONSENT AGENDA BECAUSE WE WANTED TO LEAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A TIME AT THE END OF THIS MEETING TO TOUCH BASE WITH YOU AND SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING WE CAN ADDRESS IN THE BUDGET OR THE PROPOSED PROGRAM.

YOU'VE INTRODUCED LEGISLATION AND BE AVAILABLE TO VOTE ON IT.

[01:10:12]

WE WANTED TO CREATE A TIME TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE BUDGET HAD

YOU NEED IT. >> I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT IT'S CORRECT THAT WE ARE HAVING A SPECIAL MEETING AND OTHER COMMUNITY MEMBERS ABOUT THIS MEETING COMING.

>> SO THE-THAT WHOLE PRESENTATION AND THE AGENDA FOR THAT MANS AMONGST THE STAKE HOLDERS, IT'S NOT ONLY TO SHARE INFORMATION MUCH OF WHICH WAS SHARED AT THE JOINT MEETING FOR THE LARGER COMMUNITY MAYBE START I THINK IT'S TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND GET INPUT SO IT CAN BE MADE AF WARD.

>> WE DON'T HAVE FUNDING IN OUR CURRENT BUDGET?

>> NO, I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS WE NEED TO DO IS SHARE WITH YOU INFORMATION ABOUT HOW WE WOULD ACCOMMODATE THAT, THIS EVENING WE WILL BE WORKING WITH THOSE AND HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO SHARE THAT EITHER AT PUBLIC MEETING OR NOT TOO LONG AFTERWARDS.

>> THE VOTE WOULD THEN HAVE TO BE REVISED ON THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN THAT WE ALREADY APPROVED?

>> THE BUDGET BY ORDINANCE BY THE END OF THE YEAR UNTIL YOU REPLACE IT. THE CAP PAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM CAN BE HANDLED A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT WAYS.

A, IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE ADOPTED IN THE SAME TIME LINE.

I DON'T ALWAYS RECOMMEND IT BUT IF YOU DON'T ADOPT IT, WE DON'T START WORKING ON IT. BUT IT HAS BEEN MORE RARELY ADOPTED-YOU DON'T HAVE ANY OVERALL CONCERNS WITH IT BUT MAYBE HOLD ACTION ON IDENTIFYING ITEMS FOR REDUCTION.

THAT DECISION WOULD BE FINAL. I THINK BY DIRECTION TONIGHT WE'RE NOT GOING TO MOVE THEM FORWARD.

THERE'S A COUPLE WAYS WE CAN HANDLE IT.

WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THE APPROPRIATED FUNDS FOR IT AND THE PROJECTS IN THERE THAT ARE OF A LARGER SCALE FOR FUTURE APPROPRIATION. IN THAT WAY WE HAVE TO COME BACK TO YOU WITH IT. TO A LARGE DEGREE THAT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE SCOPE AND SCALE OF THE SWIMMING PROJECT MIGHT BE.

LET ME TELL YOU WHAT WE'RE DOING.

>> APPROPRIATED FUNDS FOR THAT PROJECT.

>> THE CAPITAL PROGRAM YOU'RE NOT APPROPRIATING ANYTHING IN THAT PROGRAM. WE-ORDINANCE TO YOU AND THINGS

[01:15:02]

IN THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM AND THEN ITEMS THAT ARE EXPENDITURE AUTHORITY. OTHER ITEMS OFTEN-THE GOAL HERE

IS TO NOT- >> RIGHT.

>> STILL LEAVE SOMETHING TO GO BACK AND-

>> PROJECTS TO BE HOLD AT THIS POINT.

YOU KNOW, WE NEED TO MAKE A DECISION THAT NO I'M NOT GOING TO FUND SEWERS. OR NO I'M NOT GOING TO FUND A NORTHEAST GATEWAY OR CUT BACK ON ONE OF THOSE.

>> SUMMARIZE INTO THE BUDGET BOTH THE OPERATING BUDGET AND C IP. WORKING THIS YEAR TO A NEGATIVE NET CASH, WE'RE TARTING AND MOVING FORWARD IN THE NEXT YEAR- STILL WITH THE XPENDITURE WHICH IS HIGHER-

>> I BELIEVE THAT SUMS IT UP. PROJECTED INCOME TAX GROWTH.

THE BILL WOULD HAVE TIME EXPENSE TO THE MOVEMENT IN 911 CALL ANSWERING THE NORTH WEST COMMUNICATIONS CENTER.

SAVINGS AND FUTURE YEARS OF THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS OR SO. WE FORECAST HAT THE ANTHEM BUILDING IS TO GENERATE INCOME TAX AGAIN IN 2021.

BOTH OF THOSE EVENTS SHRINK TO ABOUT TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND.

>> THEN IN TERMS OF THE-BASED ON FOUR AREAS, THE TOP AREA AND THEN WHAT TO MAINTAIN OUR CURRENT BASIC SERVICES AND THEN MOVING INTO IMPROVEMENT TO BASIC SERVICE WHICH MAY ALSO INCLUDE PARTIES THAT DON'T FIT IN ONE OF OUR-WE'VE GONE THROUGH AND LAID IT OUT PRETTY WELL IN PREVIOUS MEETINGS AND WORKED ON IT.

WHAT CONCERNS ME A BIT IS THE AMOUNT THAT WE HAVE AVAILABLE FOR C IP, IT CONTINUES TO DECREASE AS A RESULT OF OUR DECLINING INCOME TAX TO COMBAT THE PROJECTS AS A RESULT.

I WANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT IN THE STATUS OF THE BUDGET. PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG.

>> IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO THE- >> HAVE YOU ACTUALLY EXPERIENCED

[01:20:09]

A REVENUE OR JUST A GROWTH AT THIS POINT IN TIME?

>> I APPRECIATE THAT CLARIFICATION THAT'S HELPFUL.

>> YOU AND I SPOKE ABOUT THE PARK THE C IP IS CURRENTLY

ARTICULATED DOES THIS- >> I HAVE SAID IT MANY TIMES BEFORE. IT'S A START BUT IT'S NOT SUFFICIENT TO CONSTRUCT THE PARK IN ITS FINALITY.

I'M CERTAIN IF WE HAVE IT OUT OVER A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME.

I'M MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE WITH THAT HAN CUTTING BACK IN AN EXTEND TOUR OF THE PARK. I THINK ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TAKE A WALK AT LUNCH IS CRITICAL. OF COURSE I'M INVESTED IN SOFT

BALL. >> IT IS IN ACCORD WITH THAT VISION AS YOU SEE IT? OKAY.

GOOD. >> I THINK THE OTHERS IN THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM I THINK WE'VE HIGHLIGHTED THAT IN A GREAT AMOUNT OF DETAIL IN THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PRESENTATIONS. YOU BRING UP WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE CIP THAT'S THE DYNAMIC THERE THAT'S ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS

OF NOTE. >> IF I MAY CALL ATTENTION, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THIS GRAPH ILLUSTRATING DEBT AS A PERCENT OF GENERAL REVENUE. I THINK THAT'S VERY ILLUST RATE

IVE >> I THINK THAT'S MR. BARKER CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG. THAT'S THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY COMPARES NEEDS. THE MEASURE THAT WE FOLLOW THAT

BEST PRACTICE. >> CONCERNS PREVIOUSLY ABOUT THE RELIANCE ON DEBT AND I THINK TO MR. MYERS COMMENT CARE TO THINK THAT AS E FINAL APPROVING OR ALLOCATING UNDS FOR VARIOUS STAGES OF THINGS THAT AS WE KNOW MORE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE FORMER ANTHEM BUILDING OR WHETHER HOLIDAY INN SITE IS PROGRESSING AS SHOWN ON THE SCREEN TONIGHT OR DOES IT GET SLOWED DOWN AGAIN. A LOT OF FACTORS COME INTO PLAY, EVERY PART SEEMS TO ME AS THOUGH WE'RE IN THE DRIVER SEAT AS FAR AS-WHETHER TO MOVE FORWARD ON SOME OF THESE PROJECTS NOT IF BUT WHEN BASED ON SOME OF THE OTHER FUNDAMENTALS AT THIS

POINT. >>

>> DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE? >> WHEN IT'S APPROPRIATE I WOULD LIKE TO ASK A QUESTION, JUST A FOLLOW-UP ON BOARD AND COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS. AND APPOINTMENT-

[01:25:09]

>> DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING? >> NO.

THANK YOU. >> NOTHING, MADAM PRESIDENT.

[10. Reports of Council Members]

>> NOTHING MORE. >> MR. ROBIN SON AND I HAD A VERY PRODUCTIVE BREAKFAST MEETING ON SUNDAY WITH ALL THE THING THAT'S WE DISCUSSED, I THINK THERE WERE A LOT OF THINGS. ONE OF THE THINGS I KEEP CIRCULATING IS SOME SORT OF DOCUMENT IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS THAT WILL SORT OF MEMORIALIZE THIS.

IF WE CAN, SET OUT FOR THE FIRST THREE FOR COMIET COMMITTEE, THINGS THAT MAYBE WE NEED TO TALK TONIGHT ABOUT ONE OF THOSE MEETINGS.

MORE INTERACT. I'VE ALWAYS-I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE THAT A SHOT. THERE'S SOME THINGS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE PRESENT FOR THINGS IN THE FUTURE.

I'LL CIRCULATE SOMETHING OUT CONSISTENT WITH WHAT DAVID AND I TALKED ABOUT. THE OTHER THING IS I THINK WE WOULD LIKE TO REEXAMINE HOW WE USE AND MAYBE EVEN THE TIMING OF OUR RETREAT. I'LL GET OUR THOUGHTS AND BRING IT UP TO YOU Y'ALL. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR

FEEDBACK. >> (SPEAKING AWAY FROM MIC).

>> I'M OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CAME OUT IS MAYBE WE SPLIT IT IN TWO. INSTEAD OF A FULL WEEK RETEET IS THE FIRST ONE WOULD BE ESPECIALLY ONE GIVEN TO COUNCIL MEMBERS-AND THE SECOND PHASE OF THAT RETREAT BE MORE OF OUR TYPICAL TRADITIONAL PLANNING. MAYBE THAT WOULD BE LATER IN THE YEAR. YOU KNOW, I'M PEN TO IDEAS NOW.

TO SEE IF THERE'S A BETTER- >> I KNOW THE GOAL SET SETTING OF IT IS ALWAYS SOMETHING WE'VE DONE EARLY IN THE YEAR.

>> AND AGAIN, I CERTAINLY WANT EVERYBODY'S FEEDBACK, IS THAT-YOU KNOW, IS JANUARY THE RIGHT TIME TO BE DISCUSSING THOSE GOALS? IS JANUARY-IS THAT RETREAT ABOUT SETTING ABOUT HOW ARE WE DOING? IS T SETTING GOALS, SHOULD IS T BE CLOSER TO THE CAPITAL BUDGET TIME.

THOSE ARE THE KIND OF THINGS WE REALLY WANT SOME FEEDBACK ON.

WE WERE KIND OF KICKING AROUND. THERE'S NO MONOPOLY ON THE RIGHT ANSWER. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM

EVERYBODY ON IT. >> YOU'RE GOING TO SEND SOMETHING OUT FOR A REACTION TO IT.

[12. Executive Session]

>> YEP. >> I HAVE NOTHING.

>> THIS MOVES THAT WE GO INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION FOR BOARD AND COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS. SECONDED BY DOROTHY.

MOVE FOR EXECUTIVE SESSION.. >> OKAY.

WE MOVE OUT F EXECUTIVE. ROLE CALL.

OKAY. >> MOVE TO ADJOURN.

[01:30:01]

>> ALL IN FAVOR
