[5.A. COSI Science Festival Worthington STEM Star Presentation]

OUR FIRST PRESENTATION I THINK IS GOING TO BE VERY INTERESTING.

>> YOU MAY REMEMBER STEPHEN WHITE FROM COSI WHO JOINED US LAST YEAR TO TALK ABOUT THEIR SCIENCE FESTIVAL.

THIS EVENING HE IS GOING TO PRESENT AND DISCUSS THE S.T.E.M.

AWARD AS WELL AS THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL HERE IN WORTHINGTON. THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING COSI TO BE HERE THIS EVENING TO MAKE A VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT.

THANK YOU ALSO TO THE CITY MANAGER.

MATT HAS BEEN A GREAT PARTNER AND LEADER HERE IN THE COMMUNITY ON S.T.E.M. AS WELL AS ALL OF YOU.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE THAT. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT COSI WORKS TOWARDS EVERY DAYS TO ENGAGE, TRANSPIRE AND TRANSFORM LIVES AND COMMUNITIES BY BEING A BEST PARTNER OF SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY AND INDUSTRY LEARNING.

BEST PARTNER MEANS PARTNERING WITH CITIES LIKE THE CITIES OF WORTHINGTON. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP. I AM HERE TODAY TO HELP MAKE A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. YOU MAY GIVE YOU SOME CONTEXT.

LAST YEAR, COSI HOSTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NOT ONLY THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON BUT 12 OTHER COMMUNITIES ACROSS CENTRAL OHIO.

THE FIRST EVER COSI SCIENCE FESTIVAL.

IT WAS OHIO'S LARGEST S.T.E.M. EVENT IN OUR STATE'S HISTORY.

WE DID IT ALTOGETHER. THE IMPACTED OVER 40,000 PEOPLE.

THE REASON WHY WE CREATED THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL WAS TO GET OUT THE ISSUE THAT MANY OF US KNOW IS REAL.

NOT ONLY IN CENTRAL OHIO THAT THE STATE OF OHIO WHICH IS TO ADDRESS THE SKILLS GAP ISSUE WE HAVE.

MANY OHIOANS ARE CURRENTLY UNEMPLOYED TODAY.

MEANWHILE THERE ARE HIGH IN OUR GOAL IN OUR WORK IS TO BEE.- THAT TIP OF THE SPEAR TO ENGAGE AND GET PEOPLE EXCITED ABOUT AREAS OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATH AND TO ENGAGE THEM IN A UNIQUE FUN WAY. THE GOAL BEHIND THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL IS TO ENGAGE PEOPLE WHERE THEY LIVE, WHERE THEY LEARN AND WHERE THEY LOUNGE IN THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS TO INSPIRE THEM AROUND SCIENCE. WE WANT THEM TO BE ABLE TO SAY WELL, I CAN DO THAT. THAT INDUSTRY IS FOR ME.

HOW DO WE GET UNDERREPRESENTED COMMUNITIES, WOMEN AND GIRLS, PARTICULARLY THOSE WHO ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY NOT IN STEM.

THE GOAL IS TO PARTNER TOGETHER WITH NOT ONLY CITIES, NONPROFITS AND BUSINESSES BUT TO DO THAT IN A WAY THAT MOVES THE NEEDLE ON THIS ISSUE. THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL IS DOING THAT. WE DID IT LAST YEAR.

THIS YEAR WILL BE THE SECOND ANNUAL SCIENCE FESTIVAL.

MAY 6-9, 2020. THE EVENTS SPREAD OUT ALL OVER CENTRAL OHIO ACROSS 18 DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES INCLUDING RIGHT HERE IN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. THE GOAL IS TO PROVIDE FREE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE PUBLIC TO ENGAGE IN STEM.

THE FINAL DAYS OF BIG SCIENCE CELEBRATION WHERE EVERYBODY CONVERGES AROUND COSI IN DOWNTOWN COLUMBUS WHERE WE WILL

[00:05:01]

HAVE 30,000 PEOPLE ENGAGED IN FREE ACTIVITIES.

AS PART OF THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL, WE HAVE TO SELECT GRAND MARSHALS. THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE LEADERS IN OUR COMMUNITY WHO ARE ORDINARY THINGS IN SCIENCE,- TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATH.

THE THING IS COSI DOES NOT SELECT THEM.

RATHER, YOU ALL SELECT THEM, THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON AND OUR CITY PARTNERS. WE SIMPLY SAY, WHO ARE THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE REALLY MAKING A DIFFERENCE? MAKING LIVES BETTER AND GETTING PEOPLE EXCITED ABOUT CAREERS IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. WE ARE HERE TO MAKE FOSS TO ANNOUNCEMENT. I'M GOING TO ASK ONE MELISSA WHO HAS BEEN A REAL LEADER, AT A PARTNER IN THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL, AND REALLY HER HARD WORK AND COLLABORATION WITH NOT ONLY THE DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS IN THE CITY HAS REALLY CREATED UNIQUE EVENTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC RIGHT HERE IN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON BECAUSE F HER LEADERSHIP.

WE APPRECIATE THAT. I'M GOING TO ASK HER IF SHE CAN PLEASE JOIN ME UP AT THE PODIUM. WE ARE GOING TO BE ANNOUNCING TODAY, AND WILL LET MELISSA MAKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF WHO THE OFFICIAL GRAND MARSHALL FOR THE 2020 COSI FESTIVAL WILL BE THIS

YEAR. >> THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING. WORTHINGTON IS VERY EXCITED TO PARTNER WITH COSI FOR THE SCIENCE FESTIVAL AND HAVE S.T.E.M.

CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN MELISSA. IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU AS OUR GRAND MARSHALL AND STEM LEADER.

[5.B. Community Visioning Update]

WE HAVE THE VISIONING COMMITTEE. ONE OF THE GOALS OF THE CITY WAS TO COME UP WITH, CREATE A COMMITTEE TO LOOK AT WHERE WORTHINGTON SHOULD BE 20-30 YEARS OUT FOR NOW.

THE VISIONING COMMITTEE IS WORKING TOGETHER TO GET INPUT FROM RESIDENTS, OF ALL AGES, NOTICE ALL AGES, THAT INCLUDES THE PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO AND WHAT WE SHOULD DO, WHAT ARE THE FOCUS THINGS WE SHOULD FOCUS ON AS WORTHINGTON GROWS INTO THE NEXT GENERATION.

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, EMBERS OF COUNSEL, YOU ASKED FOR A MONTHLY UPDATE OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE.

PROBABLY EQUALLY AS COOL AS NICK WAITED -- LIQUID NITROGEN, THE CHAIR OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE, JOE SHERMAN.

I WOULD LIKE HIM TO JOIN US AT THE PODIUM AND HE WILL GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON ALL OF THE HARD WORK THEY HAVE BEEN DOING AND THE EXCITING ACTIVITIES THEY ARE LAUNCHING.

>> I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO DISCO BUT THAT WAS PRETTY INCREDIBLE.

SO MUCH FOR THE OPPORTUNITY ON BEHALF OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE TO BRING YOU UP TO DATE.

WE HAVE BEEN A BUSY BUNCH. LAST TIME I WAS IN FRONT OF YOU FOLKS WAS ON THE NINTH OF DECEMBER.

WE HAVE HAD TWO MEETINGS SINCE THEN.

THE KEY ACTIVITIES ARE BRINGING OUR DATA GATHERING SEGMENT TO A CLOSE. WE HAD A PRESENTATION, A REALLY GOOD PRESENTATION BY MRS. BROWN. SHE DOES SO MUCH FOR THE CITY AND IT WAS GREAT TO HEAR HER TALK ABOUT HOW SHE CAN HELP US.

SHE'S GOT AN E-MAIL ADDRESS LISTED WITH OVER 1500 FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY. WE WILL BE TAPPING INTO THAT.

AND THEN DOCTOR BOWERS JOINED US FOR A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR AND BROUGHT US UP TO SPEED ON WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE CITY, THE BUDGETS, THE SCHOOLS, THE WHOLE THING.

AND THEN WE ENDED UP WITH I THINK A PRETTY INTERESTING CONVERSATION AND THAT WAS HEY, HOW DO WE ENGAGE THE STUDENTS.

WE REALLY LIKE TO HEAR, WORTHINGTON HAS A UNIQUE HISTORY WERE A LOT OF FOLKS COME AND LEAVE, AND THEN COME BACK WITH HER HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND THEN THEY'RE BACK IN THEIR 20S AND 30S. WE THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE AN INTERESTING OPPORTUNITY WHICH WE WILL ADVANTAGE OF.

WE WORK THROUGH OUR OLD BUSINESS.

I WILL NOT GO THROUGH ALL OF THAT.

BUT IT REALLY DID FOR US WAS LEADING TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF WHAT WERE TRYING TO GET DONE AND THAT IS GETTING OUR WORKING TEAMS ESTABLISHED. WHAT WE HAVE DONE HERE IS WE STARTED WITH THREE TEAMS, THAT'S COMMUNICATION, THE STAKEHOLDER INTERVIEWS AND REALLY WHAT THESE ARE TO DO IS TO HELP BREAK US DOWN INTO SMALLER GROUPS SO WE CAN GET STRUCTURE FORM AND REALLY START TO GET AFTER WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO AND THAT IS

[00:15:03]

TO BRING THIS WHOLE REALIZATION OF VISIONING IN FRONT OF THE COMMUNITY. WHAT WE DID IS WE SELECTED A LEADER, AND THAT WE PUT THE VOLUNTEERS TOGETHER AND THEN SINCE IT WAS THE TENTH WE HAD A THREE WEEK BREAK.

WE SAID COME BACK TO US WITH YOUR CHARTER ND HOW WE ARE GOING TO GET THIS DONE. ON OUR MEETING ON THE 14TH WE BEGAN WITH THAT. BASICALLY WE STARTED WITH THE CHARTER WHAT WE DID THERE WAS -- WE LUCKED OUT A COUPLE OF THINGS. WHAT THIS DID IS WE STARTED WITH THE SCOPE. IT IS REALLY WHAT THEY BROUGHT TO US, AND THAT WAS TO GET OUR DISCOVERY PHASE AND DOCUMENTS DONE AND WE FINALLY RECEIVE THAT.

WE GOT THE CITY'S INPUT, THANK YOU, ROBIN.

IT IS A 50 PAGE DOCUMENT. WHAT IT IS GOING TO DO IS GIVE US A COMMON BASE THAT WE CAN REFER TO.

THAT THEN GOT US STARTED WITH THE CHARTERS.

WITH THAT CAME SOMETHING THAT IS SITTING IN FRONT OF YOU AND THAT IS THE POSTCARD. WE WILL PUT THAT UP ON THE SCREEN FOR EVERYBODY ELSE. THIS IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING WE WILL TALK ABOUT HERE IN A MINUTE THAT I THINK WILL BE VERY EFFECTIVE. WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT OUR SOFTWARE PROGRAM IT IS NOT GOING TO BE REFERRED TO AS BANGING THE TABLE, IT'S GOING TO BE OUR ENGAGEMENT SOFTWARE PROGRAM.

I HAVE A PIECE ON THIS THAT WILL SHOW YOU AS WELL.

AND THEN WE HAVE A BUSINESS CARD THAT WE PUT TOGETHER, TOO.

WITH THE TEAM CHARTERS, THE FIRST ONE WE ARE GOING TO AND BASICALLY A PART OF THIS, WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS HERE WITH YOU FOLKS IS THE EDUCATION PIECE RATED HOW WE GOING TO GET AFTER THE EDUCATION? IN ORDER TO EDUCATE APPROPRIATELY YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE.

WE WILL BE DRIVING ENGAGEMENT WITH THE VISION WORTHINGTON.

WITH THAT IS WHAT THE SLIDES WILL SHOW US.

THIS IS OUR WEBSITE. THIS IS OUR VISIONING LOGO, IF YOU WILL. WHAT WE HAVE DONE HERE -- I TURNED IT ON, HERE WE GO. WHERE IS IT? WHAT DID I DO? THERE IT IS.

I WAS JUST SEEING IF YOU WERE PAYING ATTENTION.

THIS IS THE POSTCARD. FOR THOSE IN THE AUDIENCE, THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WILL BE SEEING A LOT OF.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING HERE IS THAT JUST TALKS ABOUT WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO. WE ARE TRYING TO GET AT WORTHINGTON'S FUTURE. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I THINK IS THAT THE WEBSITE IS THERE AND EVERYTHING YOU READ THERE IS SAYING JOIN US, PLEASE HELP US. SHARE YOUR VISION AND ON THAT IS MY NAME AND THEN AUSTIN WHO IS THE VICE CHAIR AND THERE IS A WAY THEN TO GET YOU TO COME BACK AND GET ONTO THE WEBSITE.

THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.

THIS IS OUR ENGAGEMENT WEBSITE. THIS IS GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC TOOL. WHAT YOU ARE SEEING HERE IS THE LEAD IN. THERE ARE DIFFERENT AREAS OF THIS. MATT IS TALKING ABOUT HOW WE GET YOU INVOLVED? THAT IS REALLY WHAT WE ARE AFTER. THE VARIOUS TILES THAT YOU WILL BE SEEING IN THIS WILL CHANGE. HERE TO BEGIN WITH WE ARE LAUNCHING OUR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT SITE.

IT TALKS ABOUT WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO GET AFTER HERE AND THEN THERE WILL BE TOOLS THAT WE WILL BE USING.

AS YOU CAN SEE, HERE IS A SAMPLE QUESTION OF WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO GET THE COMMUNITY ENGAGED WITH.

AS A PART OF THIS, WHO ARE THESE VISIONING COMMITTEE PEOPLE.

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD E A GOOD IDEA TO PUT ALL 13 OF US HERE WITH OUR BIOS AND ASSOCIATED WITH THAT WOULD BE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS IS THIS IS GOING TO BE A DYNAMIC TOOL THAT WILL CHANGE.

WE WILL BE DOING A LOT OF THIS WITH ETHAN BARNHART.

ALONG WITH ROBIN. MATT, AND THE CONTINGENT PATIENTS -- COMMUNICATIONS TEAM WILL BE UPDATING THIS AS WE MOVE AHEAD. THE DIFFERENT PHASES WE GET INTO. THERE'S A SURVEY IN PHASE THREE THAT WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT. AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS INVESTMENT. I THINK WE WILL TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THIS. I THINK WE WILL BE ABLE TO BRING HOME A REALLY GOOD PRODUCT AS A RESULT.

THE OTHER TEAM WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT IS THE STAKEHOLDER AND INTERVIEWS. THIS IS THE KEY OF WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO GET AFTER. WE ARE GOING TO FORM A CHARTER,

[00:20:10]

IF YOU WILL. THERE IS A PURPOSE HERE TO CONDUCT IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS IN SUCH A WAY THAT WE TOUCH OUR COMMUNITY. YOU HAVE GIVEN US A GOAL OF 80% AND WE WILL GET THERE. PART OF THIS THOUGH IS THE QUESTIONS. WE'LL WE TALKED ABOUT IS ADJUSTING THE QUESTIONS TO FIT THE VARIOUS PEOPLE THAT WE WILL BE TALKING WITH. FOR EXAMPLE WE WILL BE INTRODUCING COUNSEL. THEY'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH INTERACTING WITH THE COMMUNITY AND COMMUNICATING. WHEN WE GO TO THE PUBLIC, WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF EDUCATING TO SAY THIS IS WHAT WE ARE AFTER, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT IT? IT IS A PART OF THE DISCOVERY PROCESS.

BASICALLY WHAT WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT IS AN INTERVIEW POOL OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE, IT WILL BE DONE IN GROUPS OF THREES.

THE VISIONING COMMITTEE WAS ASKED FOR TWO PEOPLE FROM THE COMMUNITY. THERE WILL BE 26 PEOPLE THAT WILL BE INTERVIEWED. COUNSEL WILL BE INCLUDED.

PRETTY AGGRESSIVELY WE ARE GOING TO GO AFTER THE APPLICANT POOL AT VISIONING COMMITTEE. THAT IS ANOTHER 45 PEOPLE.

SURVEY MONKEY WILL GET AFTER THIS.

THAT WILL BE 75 PEOPLE THAT WILL START TO GIVE US INPUT.

I THINK A REALLY STRONG PLACE TO START FROM.

THIS WILL BEGIN NEXT WEEK AND OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE THAT DONE BY FEBRUARY. THAT WILL GIVE US A BASE AND THEN WE CAN START MOVING AHEAD. THE LAST ONE HERE TO ALK ABOUT IS THE SPEAKERS BUREAU. THAT IS US THAT ARE GOING TO GET OUT AND TALK IN FRONT OF A COMMUNITY.

REALLY WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO HERE IS GATHER OPINIONS.

I THINK ONE OF OUR BIGGEST CHALLENGES WILL BE THE SLIDE DECK THAT WE HAVE PREPARED WERE NOT GOING THROUGH IT SO YOU CAN RELAX. THERE ARE OVER 25 SLIDES HERE.

EACH ONE OF THESE WILL BE GEARED TO THE COMMUNITY PEOPLE THAT WE WILL BE TALKING TO. WERE GOING TO DO 30 FORMAL PRESENTATIONS. OUT OF THAT WILL BE A WAY TO GATHER DATA BACK OUT OF THIS AND REALLY WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO, QUITE HONESTLY IS ASKING THE QUESTION AND THEN DRIVE HOME THE ANSWER. WHY SHOULD YOU CARE.

I THINK THE BIGGEST THING WE WILL HAVE TO OVERCOME IS APATHY.

MY GARBAGE IS GETTING PICKED UP IN MY KIDS ARE GOING TO SCHOOL.

EVERYTHING ELSE IS GOOD. WHAT WE REALLY WANT TO DO IS WE WANT TO GATHER THEIR OPINIONS AND GET THEIR VISION SO THAT WE CAN START TO IMPLEMENT WHAT IT IS THE COMMUNITY WANTS TO SEE.

THROUGH ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS AND EVERYTHING IT WILL BE ANONYMOUS. THE INDIVIDUAL QUESTIONS WILL BE SUCH THAT THEY WILL BE CODED BY NUMBER.

YOUR NAME WILL NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT.

IT IS NOT SIMPLY A YES OR NO QUESTION.

THERE WILL BE SEVERAL PARTS AND PIECES.

TELL ME WHY YOU FEEL THIS WAY? HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS? WHAT DO YOU SEE YOUR CITY LOOKING LIKE IN 10 YEARS.

WHAT IS BOTHERING YOU TODAY? WHAT DON'T YOU WANT TO SEE CHANGED? IT WILL BE A 45 MINUTE OPPORTUNITY TO BEGIN TO SHOW THE CITY THAT THIS IS WHAT WE ARE AFTER. HOPEFULLY START TO BUILD SOME REAL STRONG ENTHUSIASM. THE ENGAGEMENT WEBSITE WE ARE LOOKING FOR TO BE UP AND RUNNING ON THE 27TH.

WE CANNOT GO TO FARMERS MARKET UNTIL WE HAVE THAT AVAILABLE.

AS A PART OF THAT, FOR THE FARMERS MARKET AND EVERY OTHER EVENT WE WILL HAVE OUR LITTLE VISIONING EBSITE, OUR PICTURE.

ON IT IS THE WEBSITE YOU CAN GO TO.

AS YOU CAN TELL, WE HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD.

IT IS GOOD FUN. I THINK WE ARE AT A POINT NOW WHERE THERE WAS A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS THAT WERE ASKED BY A COUPLE F COUNSEL FOLKS ABOUT WHAT IS YOUR TIMELINE AND WHERE ARE YOU. WE HAD THE SCOPE THAT WAS GIVEN TO US, RIGHT NOW I'D LIKE TO SAY THROUGH PHASE ONE WHICH IS DISCOVERY, WE ARE 95% THERE. WE'VE GOT KEY STAKEHOLDER INTERVIEWS THAT WILL BE DONE AND COMPLETED BY EARLY FEBRUARY.

THERE IS PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY EDUCATION THAT I THINK WILL REMAIN OPEN. I THINK WE WILL BE 95% THERE.

THE PROJECT ESIGN WAS PHASE TWO ON WE HAVE COMPLETED IT.

PHASE THREE IS LISTENING AND LEARNING.

THIS WILL BE ONGOING, BUT WE HAVE DONE AN ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN AND WE ARE 95% DONE THERE. WE HAVE CHRIS OMING IN ON THE 27TH TO FINISH THAT UP FOR US. AND THEN PHASE FOUR IS THE

[00:25:04]

COLLABORATIVE INPUT. THESE ARE MEETINGS THAT WILL BE SET IN MARCH, APRIL, AND MAY. I CAN STAND IN FRONT OF YOU CONFIDENTLY TELL YOU THIS GROUP IS ENGAGED AND WE ARE REALLY EXCITED AND CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED.

I JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU WHERE WE WERE.

I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. IS THERE ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE OF ME. -- OF ME?

>> I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT I THINK YOU GUYS ARE DOING SOME PRETTY GOOD DISCO. NICE WORK, JOE.

>> I APPRECIATE THAT. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I LOVE THE LOGO. EXCUSE ME THE PATH THAT YOU HAVE SET FORWARD. MY QUESTION IS, TALKING ABOUT THE SPEAKERS BUREAU AND THE PRESENTATIONS, WHAT IS YOUR STRATEGY FOR REACHING HARD PEOPLE THAT MAY NOT PARTICIPATE BY GOING TO A WEBSITE. I KNOW WE REALLY WANT TO HAVE A DIVERSE GROUP OF PEOPLE, DIVERSE FEEDBACK TO INFORM THE VISIONING PROCESS. I'M INTERESTED IF YOU HAVE COME UP WITH SOME STRATEGIES TO DO THAT?

>> THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION. IT'S FEBRUARY SO WE DO NOT WANT TO BE GOING DOOR TO DOOR. IF NEED BE, THAT IS WHAT WE WILL DO. THE NICE THING ABOUT WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH THE QUESTIONS, HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'VE GONE TO A QUADRANT OF THE COMMUNITY, BECAUSE OF THEM -- THEY HAVE TO BE ABLE TO GIVE THEIR WEB ADDRESS.

WITH THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO TRACK WHICH QUADRANT OF THE CITY THERE IN AND THEN BECAUSE WE ARE MASKING THE QUESTIONS I WON'T KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ANSWERED IT, I WILL KNOW THAT YOU LIVE ON MCBURNEY PLACE. WE WILL BE ABLE TO PUT A PIN INTO THIS ENGAGEMENT WEBSITE THAT WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW US WHERE ARE WE MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND WHERE HAVE WE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET AFTER IT. SAME THING FOR THE FARMERS MARKET. I THINK THAT WILL GIVE US A GOOD OPPORTUNITY. WE WILL BE ABLE TO SAY HEY, DO YOU LIVE AND WORTHINGTON? OR DO YOU NOT.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IS WHERE WE'RE GOING.

AND THEN I THINK LASTLY, IF WE ARE NOT GETTING IT.

I THINK WE'LL BE ABLE TO FIND OUT THAT WERE NOT.

I THINK I DO THAT BY JUST ASKING A LOT OF QUESTIONS AND FINDING OUT HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT US? JUST GO DOWN THAT PATH.

JUST BE RELENTLESS. WE WILL HAVE NOT OUR FINAL PRODUCT UNTIL SEPTEMBER. COME MAY WE WILL HAVE A GOOD FEEL BECAUSE WE WILL HAVE A COURT UPDATE AND WE WILL JUST SEE HOW WE ARE DOING. IT'S ON THE TOP OF OUR LIST THOUGH. AND I APPRECIATE THE QUESTION.

>> YOU TALKED ABOUT THE ANSWERS BEING ANONYMOUS BUT YOU CAN TELL WHAT PEOPLE ARE COMING FROM WHO ARE ANSWERING QUESTIONS.

ARE YOU GOING TO BE ABLE TO TRACK BY DEMOGRAPHIC HOW PEOPLE RESPONDED TO A QUESTION FOR EXAMPLE BY AGE, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE UNDER 18 SAID THAT, YOU KNOW, THEY WOULD PREFER TO HAVE SCOOTERS, I DON'T KNOW, THAT KIND OF STUFF.

>> A PART OF THAT IS WHEN YOU COME IN AND YOU GIVE ME YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS YOU ASK FOR YOUR GENDER.

WERE GOING TO ASK FOR AN AGE RANGE.

WE ARE GOING TO ASK WHERE YOU ARE IN THE CITY QUADRANT RISE AND I THINK WE MAY BE MISSING SOMETHING, IF WE ARE, WE WILL CORRECT IT, BUT THAT ILL GET US STARTED WITH WHAT WE NEED TO GATHER. I THINK WITH THE ELECTION THAT WAS JUST RUN I THINK THERE ARE SOME FOLKS THAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP US WITH SOME INSIGHTS THERE ON HOW DO WE GET AFTER DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY? I THINK WE WILL LIVE AND LEARN.

MY PLEASURE. >> WE ARE VERY EXCITED AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE COMMITTEE FOR ALL OF THEIR HARD WORK. I KNOW THE ENTIRE COUNSEL IS EXCITED WITH WHAT YOU ARE DOING. WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THE HARD WORK. WE KNOW WE ARE GOING TO APPRECIATE IT WHEN YOU FINALLY GET THE RESULTS.

WE ARE VERY EXCITED WITH WHERE IT IS GOING.

CHARGING STATIONS COMING IN. >> I'M GOING TO ASK DAVID MCCORKLE ALONG WITH THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT STAFF HAS BEEN SHEPHERDING THIS PROJECT FROM IDEA TO GRANT APPLICATION, NOW TO INSTALLATION, AND POLICY FRAMEWORK FOR CHARGING FOR IT.

WE ARE EXCITED THAT WE ARE NEARING COMPLETION OF THIS GOAL THAT YOU SET ARLIER IN THE YEAR.

WE NEED SOME FEEDBACK ON OUR COST STRUCTURE HERE.

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNSEL, HERE IS THE PROJECT TIMELINE. GOING BACK TO THIS TIME LAST YEAR, CITY COUNCIL DID IDENTIFY THIS AS NE OF THE 2019 PRIORITIES. WE ALMOST HIT THE END OF 2019, WE WILL HIT IT BY THE END OF JANUARY 2020.

STAFF ENGAGED CLEAN FUELS OHIO. WE WERE ABLE TO GO AFTER THE REBATE DOLLARS. WE DID RECEIVE ABOUT 16 TO THOUSAND DOLLARS IN REBATE DOLLARS FOR TWO CHARGING STATIONS. ONE AT THE WORTHINGTON COMMUNITY CENTER I WANT AN OLD WORTHINGTON.

WE WERE AWARDED THE FUNDING. IT IS REIMBURSEMENT BASED.

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF REQUESTING REIMBURSEMENT FOR THAT AS WELL. CHARGERS ARE SCHEDULED TO GO LIVE BY THE END OF JANUARY. THE PIECE THAT I HAVE BEFORE YOU TONIGHT IS REALLY HOW WE ARE GOING TO CHARGE, PUN INTENDED, WHAT IS THE PAYMENT STRUCTURE FOR CUSTOMERS OF THE CHARGING STATION WHETHER THAT IS A CERTAIN RATE, OR WHETHER OR NOT THE CITY PREFERS TO SUBSIDIZE THOSE CHARGING STATIONS? HERE IS THE COMMUNITY CENTER. YOU CAN SEE THE RED CIRCLE, THE LOCATION THERE. AND THE CHARGER ITSELF, IT IS A CHARGE.EXPRESS 250 CHARGER. THE CHARGER PANEL, YOU SEE THIS

[00:35:02]

ONE, AND HE WAS HE SEE THE ONE WITH THE WORTHINGTON, IT IS NOT GOING TO BE ORANGE. THEY ARE SWAPPING OUT THE PANEL THIS WEEK. IT IS A LIGHT GRAY PANEL WITH THE WORTHINGTON LOGO. IT ALSO HAS UNITED LOGO AND.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OHIO LOGO ON IT AS WELL.

I WILL SHOW A PICTURE OF THE VERY END.

HERE IS THE SECOND LOCATION. WE MOVED IT OVER ONE SPOT TO THE SOUTH. HERE IS A COUPLE OF THE SPECS ON THE FAST CHARGER. THE ONE THAT WE ARE INSTALLING IS ON THE FAR RIGHT. THIS COMPARES THE LEVEL ONE, LEVEL TWO, WE ARE ONE OF THE FIRST COMMUNITIES IN CENTRAL OHIO TO BE INSTALLING THE LEVEL THREE FAST CHARGERS.

THERE ARE SOME LEVEL THREE FAST CHARGERS AVAILABLE IN CENTRAL OHIO. THEY ARE GENERALLY SPEAKING FROM PRIVATE ENTITIES. THEY ARE NOT PUBLIC.

I DID SEE SOME ORRESPONDENCE THAT CAME THROUGH CITY COUNCIL THIS MORNING TALKING ABOUT THE PRICE FOR THESE, THAT E-MAIL DID REFERENCE LEVEL TWO CHARGERS. IT IS A MUCH SMALLER USAGE OF ELECTRICITY AND THOSE CHARGE TIMES ARE MUCH LONGER THAN WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HERE. THE INDIVIDUAL THIS MORNING HAD REFERENCED CHARGING FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS ON A LEVEL TWO CHARGER AND THE PRICE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT.

OUR CHARGERS INSTEAD OF 2.5 HOURS WOULD HAVE CHARGED AS INDIVIDUALS VEHICLE IN APPROXIMATELY NINE MINUTES FOR A COUPLE DOLLARS MORE. HERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN EXAMPLE AND HERE ARE THE COMPS. CONSUMER FEE STRUCTURE.

HERE ARE THE LEVEL THREE CHARGERS, SO THE FAST CHARGERS CHARGERS IN CENTRAL OHIO. THIS IS LOOKING AT I-70 NORTH.

YOU HAVE AAA HERE IN WORTHINGTON, THAT IS THE ONLY FAST CHARGER HERE CHARGING .0 -- .30 CENTS PER MINUTE TO CHARGE.

WALMART AND POWELL, A COUPLE OF OTHER AAA LOCATIONS.

WHEN ON DUBLIN ON ONE ON BETHEL. THE SAMS CLUB ON MORRIS ADD POWELL. AS LONG AS YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE COUNTRY CLUB IT IS COMPLEMENTARY.

HOWEVER IF YOUR CAR IS NOT CHARGING, IT STARTS CHARGING YOU $5 FOR EVERY 15 MINUTES YOU PARK IN THAT SPOT.

THESE ARE THE TYPES OF FEATURES THAT WE WILL HAVE TWO ONTROL OUR PAYMENT SYSTEM. DUBLIN IS FREE, EASTON ACTUALLY HAS SIX CHARGERS THAT ARE COMPLEMENTARY, FAST CHARGERS.

AND THEN CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IS .20 CENTS PER MINUTE.

I SHARE THIS BECAUSE WE REFERENCED IN OUR MEMO THAT A PLACE TO START WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY 30 CENTS PER MINUTE. I DO THINK THAT IS PROBABLY A LITTLE HIGH. OUR RECOMMENDATION THIS EVENING IS THAT WE START AT A PLACE THAT ALLOWS STAFF TO ADJUST THE RATE PER MINUTE FOR A BREAKEVEN SOLUTION.

THE RECOMMENDATION IS TO NOT SUBSIDIZE THE CHARGING, THE RECOMMENDATION IS TO SET THE INITIAL RATE AS CLOSE AS WE CAN TO WHAT WE THINK WOULD BREAKEVEN THE CITY'S REVENUES THAT WE ARE GENERATING ARE GOING TO EQUAL EXPENSES.

UNDERSTANDING THAT WE CAN DO THIS FOR THREE DAYS AND START AT 30 CENTS AND THAT MR. BARTER AND I WILL QUICKLY REALIZE THAT WE ARE OVERCHARGING AND WE NEED TO COME DOWN TO .20 CENTS.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY AND THE SOFTWARE TO CHANGE THE PRICING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO MAKE THIS NEUTRAL.

WHERE WE ARE NOT GENERATING PROFIT, AND WE ARE NOT HARGING CUSTOMERS MORE THAN WHAT WE ARE PAYING FOR THE ELECTRIC, HE 10% CHARGE.TRANSACTION FEE AND THEN ONGOING MAINTENANCE FOR SOME OF THE HARDWARE. HERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF THE CONSUMER COST STRUCTURE. YOU HAVE SEEN THIS SLIDE BEFORE.

IT'S AN EYE CHART HERE, BUT WHAT THIS SHOWS IS LOW USAGE, MEDIUM USAGE AND HIGH USAGE. 635 IS THE LOW USAGE.

THEY RE HIGHLIGHTED THERE. AND THEN IF YOU LOOK ON THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE IT BREAKS IT DOWN FOR THE BREAKEVEN RATE.

WHILE OUR MEMO REFERENCES .30, THE MORE ELECTRICITY THAT IS USED THE LOWER PER -- PRICE PER KILOWATT ENDS UP BEING.

[00:40:02]

IF OUR CHARGERS ARE NOT YOU'RE GOING TO BE IN THE 16-CENT POTENTIALLY EVEN HIGHER BALLPARK.

IF THEY ARE USED A LOT THAT PRICE COMES DOWN.

IT MIGHT WIND UP BEING 20 CENTS PER KILOWATT, 20 CENTS PER MINUTE THAT WE NEED TO CHARGE WE REALLY DON'T HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF DATA ON THAT YET. OUR COMPS AROUND CENTRAL OHIO, OTHER COMMUNITIES ARE OFFERING LEVEL TWO CHARGING FOR FREE.

THERE ISN'T ANYBODY, TO MY KNOWLEDGE OFFERING LEVEL THREE CHARGING FOR FREE. YOU CAN SEE THE ANNUAL COST THERE. THAT IS FOR BOTH CHARGES.

WHAT THAT ASSUMES IS IF WE HAVE LOW USAGE AND WE WERE TO NOT SUBSIDIZE WE'D BE LOOKING AT APPROXIMATELY A RANGE OF $16,000 UP TO $39,000 PER YEAR TO PAY FOR THE 10% THAT THE CHARGE.

TRANSACTION FEE. >> THIS IS WHAT IT WILL ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE BESIDES MY SUPERIMPOSED WORTHINGTON LOGO.

IT WILL LOOK BETTER THAN THAT. I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS. THE RECOMMENDATION OF EVENING IS TO SET THE PAY STRUCTURE, OR THE FEE STRUCTURE AT A RATE THAT WOULD HAVE OUR REVENUES, EQUAL OUR EXPENSES AND STAFF WOULD ADJUST THAT HOURLY RATE TO GET AS CLOSE TO ZERO AS POSSIBLE.

>> WHAT KIND OF A STARTING RATE ARE WE LOOKING AT.

>> 30 CENTS WAS REFERENCED BECAUSE EVERY OTHER PROVIDER THAT HAS A CHARGING STATION IN CENTRAL OHIO IS AT 30 CENTS.

THOSE ARE PRIVATE PROVIDERS. IF I HAD TO GUESS WE WILL BE CLOSER TO 20 CENTS PER MINUTE. AGAIN, WE HAVE NO DATA YET TO TELL US IF WE ARE CLOSE GRADE IT WOULD ONLY TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS WORTH OF TRACKING THIS TO KNOW WHERE WE NEED TO ADJUST UP OR

DOWN. >> HOW DOES SOMEBODY PAY?

>> THEY WILL HAVE A CHARGE POINT ACCOUNT.

THERE IS A MULTITUDE OF DIFFERENT SOFTWARE IS THAT YOU CAN PAY WITH. THEY WILL ACTUALLY SWIPE THEIR CARD, SIMILAR TO A CREDIT CARD OR AN APPLE PAY IF YOU HAVE AN APPLE ID. WHAT IT DOES IS IT STORES YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. ONCE THEY SCANNED, JUST LIKE YOUR GAS STATION IT LOCKS IN THAT CHARGE THAT IS STARTED, BASED ON HOW MUCH TIME THAT THEY SPEND THEIR IT WILL CHARGE THEM.

IT IS A REIMBURSEMENT. WHAT HAPPENS IS THEY GET CHARGED, CHARGE POINT COLLECTS THOSE DOLLARS AND THEN CHARGE POINT WILL GIVE US THE MONEY. ONE OF THE ORDINANCES THAT WAS INTRODUCED WAS FOR THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH THIS BECAUSE WE STILL NEED TO PAY AP. THIS WOULD BE REIMBURSED TO US.

WE NEED TO PAY THE AEP BILL DIRECTLY.

THE CUSTOMER WOULD BE CHARGED BY CHARGE POINT AT CHARGE AND POINT

WOULD GIVE US THE DOLLARS. >> I HAVE A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO MAKE THEM LOGICALLY SEQUENTIAL.

I HAVE A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT NOTES HERE.

SO BEAR WITH ME, PLEASE. HOW WILL THE VEHICLE OWNER KNOW THE PRICE THAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE CHARGED?

WHEN WILL NOT BECOME VISIBLE? >> IT IS VISIBLE IN THERE, AND ON THE MONITOR, BUT IT'S I DOWNLOADED THE CHARGE.OUT.

I CAN ACTUALLY SEE ALL OF THE STATIONS THAT ARE CLOSE TO ME WHAT THE PRICES AS WELL AS WHAT THE OPTIONS ARE.

WHAT THEIR CONNECTIONS ARE, WHETHER OR NOT IT WILL FIT IN MY VEHICLE? THEY KNOW IN ADVANCE, THEY CAN ALSO SIGN UP TO BE IN A QUEUE. IF THERE ARE TWO OR THREE PEOPLE WAITING THEY CAN SIGN UP TO GET IN LINE TO CHARGE THEIR VEHICLE AT THE OLD WORTHINGTON LOCATION. THEY CAN SEE THAT RATE WELL IN ADVANCE AND THEN THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEE IT SIMILAR TO LIKE A

GAS PUMP RIGHT THERE. >> YOU JUST PROVOKED ANOTHER QUESTION. IF THERE IS A QUEUE RUNNING HOW DOES THAT ACTUALLY OPERATE? WILL COMPEL SOMEONE TO LEAVE THE SPOT? WHAT IF SOMEONE PULLS UP AND THEY ARE NOT IN THE QUEUE, CAN THEY NOT PULL INTO THE SPOT?

HOW DOES THAT WORK? >> I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY OW THE QUEUE WORKS? I WOULD LIKEN IT TO ORDERING AN UBER OR LYFT, YOU CAN CANCEL YOUR SPOT IN LINE.

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION. >> HOW WOULD THE 30 CENTS COMPARED TO WHAT SOME I EXPECT TO PAY AT HOME?

[00:45:03]

>> VERY FEW INDIVIDUALS WOULD HAVE A LEVEL THREE CHARGER, IT WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EXPENSIVE TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHARGE IN 20-30 MINUTES A FULL CHARGE RATHER THAN ANYWHERE 5-15 HOURS. IT IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE

EXPENSIVE. >> TOTAL OR JUST PER MINUTE? LIKE TO CHARGE AN EMPTY BATTERY WOULD BE MORE?

>> IT WOULD BE MORE EXPENSIVE. I MEAN, YOU WOULD BE PAYING AT HOME, HE COULD TAKE ANYWHERE, DEPENDING ON YOUR BATTERY SIZE AND WHAT CHARGER YOU ACTUALLY HAVE BECAUSE THERE ARE LEVEL ONE AND LEVEL TWO CHARTERS A HOME, IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT INDIVIDUAL HAS A LEVEL THREE CHARGER AT HOME BECAUSE OF THE COST OF THESE DEVICES. IT CAN TAKE ANYWHERE FROM 5-15 HOURS CHARGING AT HOME. PROBABLY LOOKING AT, YOU KNOW, DEPENDING ON THEIR BATTERY SIZE, ANYWHERE BETWEEN .10 CENTS AND A COUPLE OF DOLLARS TO CHARGE A HOME.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT MOST OF OUR VEHICLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO CHARGE IN 30-45 MINUTES FROM A 0% ALL THE WAY UP TO 80-100%.

THAT GIVES A DRIVE OF 100-200 MILES.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT A HALF-HOUR, IF WE DID SET IT AT .30 CENTS WHICH I THINK S A LITTLE HIGH.

YOU ARE LOOKING OUT A 9-DOLLAR CHARGE TO GO UT 150 MILES.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS HELPFUL OR NOT.

IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE TO DO THIS USING AN CHARGER.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF HAVING ONE.

WE PUT THESE IN ATTRACTIVE LOCATIONS AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO A FULL CHARGE IN 30 MINUTES AS OPPOSED TO 12

HOURS. >> ON THE CITY SIDE OF THINGS, HOW DOES OUR BREAKEVEN POINT VERY? ARE WE NOT CHARGED ONLY ON ACTUAL USAGE OR IS THERE A FIXED COST THAT WE HAVE TO PAY EVERY MONTH? WHY WOULD OUR BREAKEVEN POINT VARY OVER TIME IS MY QUESTION?

>> DEPENDING ON USAGE. FIRST OF ALL THE PRICE PER KILOWATT HOUR DOES CHANGE DURING SURGE TIMES.

THERE ARE PEAK HOURS HEN IT IS MORE EXPENSIVE TO CHARGE VERSUS AT NIGHT. THAT IS ALSO WHY IT COSTS LESS TO CHARGE IN EVENING AT HOME RATHER THAN AT NOON ON A FRIDAY.

THOSE RATES, ONCE WE GET IT LOCKED IN IT SHOULD BE PRETTY CLOSE AND WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO CHANGE IT A WHOLE LOT.

WHEN I'M TALKING ABOUT DYNAMIC PRICING I'M REALLY EMPHASIZING UP FRONT, WE DON'T KNOW IF 30 CENTS IS THE RIGHT AMOUNT, WE DON'T KNOW IF 15 CENTS IS THE RIGHT AMOUNT.

TO START CHARGING, I THINK ONCE WE START CHARGING INDIVIDUALS AND WE SET A RATE, YOU KNOW, AFTER A MONTH OF WATCHING THE USAGE AND KNOWING WHAT OUR AEP BILLS ARE AND WHAT THAT 10% TRANSACTION FEE IS, WE SHOULD HAVE A PRETTY GOOD HANDLE ON THIS AND NOT HAVE TO CHANGE AND WHOLE LOT.

IT MIGHT BE A COUPLE OF CENTS TO MAKE SURE WE ARE BREAKING EVEN.

>> I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE BASIC MODEL.

IF THE USAGE IS LOW WOULD OUR COSTS NOT ALSO BE LOW?

IT WOULD. >> I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE NEED TO VARY THE RATE SUBSTANTIALLY IF WE ARE BEING CHARGED? WE ARE BEING CHARGED A RATE PER KILOWATT HOUR. IF WE HAVE VERY LITTLE USAGE THE PRICE PER KILOWATT IS GOING TO BE HIGHER.

THERE ARE FEWER OF THOSE. YOU ARE STILL GOING TO GET AN ELECTRIC BILL BUT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT DOING IS THE PRICE PER KILOWATT, IF THE USAGE IS LOW IS GOING TO BE HIGHER.

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IS WE ARE GOING TO MONITOR THIS.

QUITE HONESTLY, SCOTT BARTER AND I MIGHT KNOW WITHIN A WEEK AT IS NOT .30 CENTS, ITS .18 CENTS PER MINUTE THAT WE NEED TO CHARGE IN ORDER TO BREAK EVEN. I WAS A CONSERVATIVE, INITIAL RATE THAT WE WERE RECOMMENDING BASED ON THE COMPS IN THE AREA.

WE REALLY DON'T KNOW. WE WILL KNOW VERY, VERY QUICKLY IF IT IS COUNSEL'S DESIRE TO START AT.20 CENTS.

WE CAN DO THAT. WE MAY BEAK PLAYING CATCH UP THE COUPLE OF DAYS. AGAIN, WE DON'T KNOW.

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IS WE ARE GOING TO WAIT ON THOSE INITIAL DATA SAGE NUMBERS AND WHAT OUR BILL FROM TRYING LOOKS LIKE AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO ADJUST THE PRICE PER MINUTE.

[00:50:09]

>> I HAD SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT WE EXPECT OUR EXPENSES TO BE AND WHAT OUR NON- WARRANTY MAINTENANCE ITEMS ARE WHAT SORT OF LIABILITY WE MIGHT HAVE IF SOMETHING HAPPENED? AT A GAS STATION, YOU'RE FILLING UP YOUR TANK AND SOME OF THAT'S A GAS GOING TO HAVE SOME SORT OF CRAZY XPLOSION.

ARE WE LOOKING AT ANY OF THAT? SOMETHING THAT IS NOT AS SPECTACULAR, HAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE PARK WHO IS NOT EVEN AN EV CAR OR A CAR THAT IS CAMPING OUT FOR HOURS?

>> I WILL ANSWER THE SECOND QUESTION FIRST.

I DID REACH OUT TO A HANDFUL OF OTHER COMMUNITIES IN CENTRAL OHIO BECAUSE HAVING ONE OF THESE LOCATIONS IN A COMMUNITY CENTER PARKING LOT, DIRECTOR HURLEY ALSO HAD SOME CONCERNS ABOUT POLICING IF SOMEBODY WERE TO PARK FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. OTHER COMMUNITIES HAVE SHARED THAT THEY ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN ALLOWING THESE DRIVERS TO SELF POLICE. SO THEY DO NOT HAVE ONE HOUR PARKING ONLY, OR THREE HOUR PARKING ONLY.

BUT THEY DO HAVE IS SIGNS THAT SAY, PARKING WHEN CHARGING ONLY.

THEY HAVE SAID, SO FAR, MOST CASES THEY HAVE BEEN IN PLACE A COUPLE OF YEARS, THEY HAVE NOT HAD MAJOR ISSUES WITH THAT.

SOMETIMES THEY NEED TO REMIND SOMEBODY THAT THEY NEED TO MOVE THEIR CAR WHEN THEY'RE DONE CHARGING, BUT THEY HAVE NOT HAD SUBSTANTIAL ISSUES. THESE THINGS HAVE SOMEWHAT SELF POLICE. WE WILL HAVE A PAGE THAT WILL HAVE ALL KINDS OF INFORMATION ON RECOMMENDED PARK TIMES, PROTOCOL ETIQUETTE FOR THIS. WITH THAT SAID, WE DON'T HAVE PUNITIVE ACTION THAT WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT.

THERE ARE AGAIN OTHER STATION OWNERS THAT HAVE IMPLEMENTED CHARGES, THE STATION IS SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT WHEN YOU ARE PLUGGED IN AND YOU ARE NO LONGER CHARGING WE CAN START TO PENALIZE PEOPLE BY PAYING A PENALTY THE LONGER THAT THEY SIT THERE. I DON'T THINK WE ARE THERE YET.

THE RECOMMENDATION IS NOT INCLUSIVE OF THAT YET.

I THINK THERE IS STILL SOME QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED AS WE ROLL THIS OUT. I WOULD RECOMMEND AGAINST STARTING WITH A PENALTY. MAYBE WE COME BACK IN TWO MONTHS AND SEE PEOPLE ARE ABUSING THIS AND WE NEED TO PUT THAT IN PLACE. OR ADDITIONAL SIGNAGE THAT SAYS LIMIT TO ONE HOUR PARKING. THAT IS NOT THE INITIAL EMENDATION. THAT IS TO ROLL THIS OUT, WATCH IT, AND SEE IF FOLKS ACTUALLY POLICE THEMSELVES.

>> WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO REVISIT THIS.

THE INITIAL REASON BEHIND THIS IS WE WANT TO SHOWCASE THAT WE CAN CHANGE THE ENERGY THAT WE ARE USING FOR OUR TRANSPORTATION WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE ELECTRIC VEHICLES, AND WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM OUTSIDE. MOST PEOPLE WHO HAVE ELECTRIC VEHICLES IN TOWN HAVE A WAY TO CHARGE THEM AT THEIR OWN RESIDENCE SO THEY WOULDN'T NEED TO HAVE CHARGING OF THESE LOCATIONS WHERE WE ARE TRYING TO ATTRACT VISITORS THAT WE DON'T WANT TO LEAVE THEM WITH A BAD TASTE IN THEIR MOUTH.

I DO WANT TO RAISE THESE QUESTIONS SO WE DO HAVE A CHANCE TO REVISIT THIS AND COME BACK AND SEE WHAT OTHER TWEAKS WE NEED TO DO. ANYTIME WE DO SOMETHING THAT WE KNOW WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET 100% RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE.

>> THE OTHER COMMUNITIES THAT I DID CONNECT WITH, BOTH POWELL AND BEXLEY HAVE LEVEL TWO CHARGERS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR FREE RIGHT NOW. I ASKED THEM WHAT THEIR TOTAL ANNUAL COST IS, AGAIN LEVEL TWO, IT WAS ABOUT $1000 ANNUALLY FOR ALL OF IT. IT WAS RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE.

THEY ARE BOTH ROLLING OUT LEVEL THREE CHARGERS AND THEY ARE WAITING ON OUR MODEL BECAUSE THEY WOULD LIKE TO ALSO DO A BREAKEVEN MODEL WHERE THEY ARE NOT SUBSIDIZING THE CHARGING, THEY ARE TRYING TO SET THEIR PRICE AT A RATE HAT ALLOWS THEM

TO BREAKEVEN. >> DID YOU HAVE INFORMATION ON

THE LIABILITY QUESTION? >> IN GENERAL WITHOUT HAVING SPECIFICALLY RESEARCHED THE ISSUE, THE CITY OF COURSE HAS VARIOUS IMMUNITIES UNDER STATE LAW THAT PROVIDE CERTAIN PROTECTIONS FOR ACTIVITIES HAT WE ENGAGE IN.

WE ALSO HAVE INSURANCE WHICH PROTECTS US IN THE EVENT OF

[00:55:03]

LIABILITIES THAT ARE NOT SUBJECT TO OUR IMMUNITIES.

HOWEVER, I DO THINK IT IS A GOOD QUESTION AND IT WARRANTS LOOKING AT. PERHAPS TALKING TO A COUPLE OF THE OTHER CITIES WHO HAVE ENGAGED THESE TO SEE WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE EXPORTED. I WOULD ALSO THINK AND I DON'T KNOW WHETHER MR. BARTER HAD, BUT WE WILL NOTIFY OUR INSURANCE CARRIER THAT WE DO HAVE THESE SO I AT A LOSS FOR THE WORD I WAS THINKING INVENTORY THEM, OR AT LEAST INCLUDED IN OUR PHYSICAL ASSETS FOR THE CITY SO THAT THEY ARE COVERED UNDER THE COVERAGES

UNDER OUR POLICIES. >> I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT WERE TALKING ABOUT WHEN WE SAY BREAKEVEN COSTS. WERE ACTUALLY TALKING RAKE EVEN OF OUR VARIABLE COST ON OUR TOTAL COST, CORRECT?

>> CORRECT THE COST TO UTILIZE IT, NOT THE BREAKEVEN INCLUDING

THE COST OF BUYING THE STATIONS. >> THAT HAS BEEN REIMBURSED ANYWAY, THAT'S NOT OUR COST. WE HAVE NO OUT OF POCKET.

>> WHEN I THINK OF BREAKEVEN I THINK OF FIXED AND VARIABLE, AS I DO THE MATH, KEEP IN MIND I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE.

I DON'T REALLY DO MATH, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, PLEASE.

IF IT IS 30 CENTS PER MINUTE, AND IT TAKES 30 MINUTES TO CHARGE A CAR, THAT IS $9. IF YOU HAVE A 200-MILE RANGE THAT IS 4.5 CENTS PER MILE. IF I GO TO THE GAS STATION AND I PAID $2.50 PER GALLON AND I GET 30 MILES PER GALLON, THAT IS COSTING ME 8.3 CENTS PER MILE. IT IS STILL PRETTY CHEAP.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY NEED FOR US TO SUBSIDIZE THIS VENTURE SINCE IT'S ALREADY CHEAPER. I AGREE WITH THE CONCEPT THAT WE SHOULD NOT, WE SHOULD BREAKEVEN OF OUR VARIABLE COST AND NOT SUBSIDIZE. ALSO, I THINK, IF WE WANTED TO ENFORCE SOMETHING, CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG, WE WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TO ENACT A NEW VIOLATION. I DON'T THINK YOU COULD JUST GO ON AND DO IT. WHEN YOU SAY SELF POLICING I THINK OF GUYS AND TELLS -- TESLA'S WITH SLEDGEHAMMERS.

WHEN WE ORIGINALLY BROUGHT THIS UP, WE HAD TALKED ABOUT THE ABILITY TO GET FREEWAYS SIGNAGE ON 270 ALERTING PEOPLE THESE ARE THERE. HAVE WE LOOKED INTO THAT.

IS THAT POSSIBLE? >> IT IS NOT IN THE WORKS?

>> CAN WE MAKE IT IN THE WORKS? >> WE HAD TALKED ABOUT THAT AND I THOUGHT IT WAS POSSIBLE. I THINK AT ONE TIME, AND I WOULDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR IT LIKE THE WENDY'S SIGNS ON THE EXIT PLACARDS. I THOUGHT THERE WAS A WAY THAT SOMEHOW WE COULD DO THAT. I WOULD SURE PPRECIATE YOU LOOKING INTO IT. THAT WOULD BE ONE MORE WAY TO ATTRACT PEOPLE TO DOWNTOWN. AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S A PRETTY BIG GAP IN SERVICE HERE. WE WILL BE FILLING THAT GAP.

>> ANYBODY ON THE SIDE? MR. BROKER?

>> ONE QUESTION. SOMEONE IS ON THE STATION AND SOMEONE'S ONLINE IS THERE A WAY TO SEE HOW FAR THEY HAVE LEFT ON

THE APP OR AT THE STATION? >> YES.

EXACTLY. I LIKEN IT TO AN UBER OR LYFT BEFORE. IT WILL SHOW HOW MUCH TIME THEY HAVE LEFT UNTIL FULLY CHARGED. YOU CAN SET UP YOUR OWN NOTIFICATION SO YOU CAN SAY WHEN THERE'S FIVE MINUTES LEFT SEND ME AN SMS SO YOU CAN RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS.

IF YOU'RE AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER, YOU'RE ON THE ELLIPTICAL , YOU CAN SET UP YOUR NOTIFICATIONS THROUGH THE APP TO NOTIFY YOU WHEN YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES, 10 MINUTES, WHATEVER

REMAINING. >> THANK YOU.

>> WOULD WE BE ABLE TO TELL WHERE PEOPLE ARE COMING FROM? WILL BE GET DATA BACK ON WHO IS USING THE CHARGERS?

>> I BELIEVE WE WILL. WE WILL HAVE QUITE A BIT OF INFORMATION. YES.

WE FULLY INTEND TO COME BACK AND REPORT ON USAGE VERY SOON.

>> I DID HAVE ONE OTHER QUESTION AND MAYBE THIS IS FOR THE SIDE OF THE ROOM. ARE WE GOING TO ADOPT A PRICE? ARE WE GOING TO DO A RESOLUTION, -- IS NOT SOMETHING

WE CAN DELEGATE TO STAFF? >> I'M THINKING IF WE DECIDE WE WANT TO START AT .30 CENTS PER HOUR THAT IS AN ACT OF COUNSEL AND THEN IF IT IS AN ACT OF COUNSEL TO START AT 30 IT WOULD HAVE TO BE AN ACTIVE COUNSEL TO CHANGE IT FROM 30. THAT STAFF

[01:00:05]

HAS THE DISCRETION TO MOVE THIS ALONG.

>> THE MOTION THAT WE WERE RECOMMENDING AS AUTHORIZED IN CITY MANAGER TO SET THE CHARGE FOR THE USE OF THE CHARGING STATIONS OUT AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE CITY'S ESTIMATED COST TO

PROVIDE THE SERVICE. >> SO MOVED.

UNTIL FURTHER ADJUSTED BY STAFF THE COST WILL START AT 30 CENTS PER MINUTE. IT IS ACCEPTABLE?

>> MAY I WEIGH IN ON THAT? >> WE NEED A SECOND SO WE CAN

DISCUSS IT. >> I WILL SECOND IT.

>> OKAY. MAYBE IT'S MY MARKETING EMPHASIS. I THINK IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO START OFF AT A LOWER PRICE AND USAGES WOULD PROBABLY BE RELATIVELY LOW ANYWAY SINCE THE CHARGES ARE UNKNOWN.

WHETHER IT BE A THREE MONTH OR SIX MONTH PERIOD, AN INTRODUCTORY PRICE AND THEY KICK INTO ONE WHERE WOULD BE SELF

FUNDING. >> I THINK IT WOULD BE EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE. WE START HIGH AND THEN WE CUT THE COSTS SO PEOPLE WANT SUCH A DEAL.

AS OPPOSED TO START LOW AND THEN RAISE THE PRICE.

>> THAT IS WHY YOU ARE A LAWYER AND I'M A BUSINESSMAN.

THINK MR. MYERS WAS CORRECT THAT IF IT WAS ALREADY A LOWER COST PER MILE FOR THIS ENERGY USAGE, AND A LOT OF THESE CARS ARE ALREADY SUBSIDIZED. I'M NOT OF THE OPINION TO TRY TO SUBSIDIZE EVEN MORE. I DO THINK IT IS A DIFFERENT FORM OF TRANSPORTATION, BUT I AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NON- WARRANTY MAINTENANCE AND MAKING SURE WE DO COVER ALL OF OUR EXPENSES BESIDES JUST THE EXPENSES FOR THE ELECTRICAL GENERATION. AS SOON AS THESE GO ONLINE THERE'S GOING TO BE AN APP, EVERY SINGLE PERSON THAT OWNS A CAR THAT NEEDS TO HAVE A CHARGED HAS AN APP TO IND OUT WHERE THESE SPOTS ARE. I DEFINITELY DO THINK WE NEED THE ABILITY FOR STAFF TO CHANGE THE PRICING TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE BEING USED IN A GOOD MANNER.

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT IT BEING TOO LOW AND SUBSIDIZING PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY BEING SUBSIDIZED.

>> ARE YOU FINE WITH THE 30 CENTS?

>> ABSOLUTELY. AND I'M FINE WITH STAFF COMING BACK WITH ALTERNATIVE PRICES ABSOLUTELY.

>> ANY OTHER COMMENTS? I HAVE A MOTION ON A SECOND.

ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION SIGNIFY BY SAYING I? OPPOSED? THAT PASSES.

ANYTHING ELSE ON ELECTRIC CHARGING?

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, I WANT TO THANK DAVID FOR CONTRIBUTING TO THIS PROJECT WHICH IS A LITTLE BIT OUTSIDE THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT LANE. HE PICKED UP THAT TASK AND RAN WITH IT TO GET IT DONE AND FULFILL A COUNCIL PRIORITY.

WE APPRECIATE HIS WORK ON THIS. >> VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

>> IT WILL LOOK GOOD ON YOUR RESUME.

YOU ARE NOW AN EV EXPERT. >> ANY OTHER POLICY ITEMS TO BE

BROUGHT UP? >> NO.

JUST A REPORT ON VARIETY OF ISSUES WHEN THE TIME IS

APPROPRIATE. >> THE TIME IS APPROPRIATE.

[9. Reports of Council Members]

>> A COUPLE OF THINGS. LET'S DO SCHEDULING.

I WANTED TO CALL TO YOUR ATTENTION INFORMATION I BELIEVE WE PUT BEFORE YOU BE -- ABOUT THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE GROUNDHOG DAY EVENT WHERE DOCTOR BOWERS, MR. GIBSON AND I WILL ONCE AGAIN BE GIVING BRIEF TALKS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN WORTHINGTON AS IS THE CUSTOM IN GROUNDHOG DAY FORECASTING THE YEAR AHEAD. WE PUT AT YOUR PLACE THE PARK AND RECREATION COST RECOVERY AND FEE ANALYSIS FOR YOUR REVIEW.

I THINK PREVIOUSLY WE INDICATED TO YOU THAT CONSULTANT THAT PERFORMED THAT REPORT WILL BE HERE IN FEBRUARY AND WE WANTED TO GIVE YOU TIME TO DIGEST IT. AFTER THAT PRESENTATION WE WILL BE RECOMMENDING THAT BE REFERRED TO THE PARKS AND RECREATION COMMISSION WHO IS ALSO RECEIVING AT THIS WEEK.

>> DO YOU KNOW WHEN IN FEBRUARY? >> THE SECOND MEETING.

>> OKAY. >> I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT IF YOU HAVEN'T DRIVEN TO THE EAST TODAY , THE BUILDING AT THE CORNER OF HUNTLEY WHERE THE INNOCENT -- WORTHINGTON AND

[01:05:01]

GALENA DEMOLITION BEGAN, IT IS KNOCKED DOWN.

THERE IS NOTICEABLE BEGINNING OF OUR PROJECT.

IF YOU DID NOT WANT NOTICE THE WATER LINE PROJECT WE DID A WHILE AGO YOU WILL NOW NOTICE THE DEMOLITION ON HAS BEGUN.

A COUPLE OF SUBSTANTIVE ITEMS THAT WE ARE WRITING MEMOS ON THAT I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT FOR YOU AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO DO SOMETHING A LITTLE I THINK EXCITING, SHERRY VIDEO WITH YOU.

THE FIRST IS SHARON TOWNSHIP HAS APPROACHED US A WHILE BACK TO DISCUSS A JOINT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT.

I'M GOING TO USE THE GOVERNMENT ACRONYM, JED.

FOR THOSE OF YOU ON COUNSEL FOR A WHILE WILL REMEMBER WE NEGOTIATED ONE OF THESE WITH PERRY TOWNSHIP IN THE LEAVENWORTH AREA A COUPLE -- QUITE A WHILE AGO.

THEY DECIDED NOT TO GO FORWARD WITH IT.

IN THIS CASE, SHARON TOWNSHIP WANTS TO PUT A JOINT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT, TRYING TO IN THE CENTER AREA SO THEY HAVE A PROJECT WHERE THAT SENIOR HOUSING HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED AND THERE IS A RENOVATION OF SOME OLDER RETAIL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THAT THE HILLS MARKET?

>> YEAH, THAT AREA. TO INCLUDE THE NEW PROJECT THAT HAS BEEN BUILT WHICH INCLUDES 109 UNIT BUILDING THAT HAS BOTH INDEPENDENT LIVING AND ASSISTED LIVING FOR 55 AND OLDER INDIVIDUALS. JOINT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DISTRICTS ALLOW, ESSENTIALLY ALLOW AN INCOME TAX TO BE LEVIED IN THE AREA IN WHICH THE DISTRICT IS CREATED, AND MOST OF THE DISTRICTS AROUND CENTRAL OHIO, ESSENTIALLY THE TOWNSHIP USES THE CITIES INCOME TAX AUTHORITY AND WE DMINISTER THE INCOME TAX IN THE AREA, MOST OF THE DISTRICTS IN IN CENTRAL OHIO, THE TOWNSHIP THEN TAKES 80%, THE CITY RECEIVES 20%, PLUS THE COST OF ADMINISTRATION. WE WILL BE WORKING WITH THEM SIMILAR TO THE WAY WE DID IN PERRY AND BRING THAT FORWARD TO YOU IN NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE. UM THESE THINGS ESSENTIALLY CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE TOWNSHIP TO CAPTURE REVENUE STREAM THAT IS NOT AFFORDED TO THEM, EXCEPT THROUGH THESE JED'S AND THESE VARIOUS COMMERCIAL AREAS IN TOWNSHIPS.

ONE OF THE CHANGES IN THE LAWS, SINCE THE LAST TIME WE TALKED ABOUT THIS IS THE TOWNSHIP HOUSE TO PARTNER WITH WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A CONTIGUOUS OR ADJACENT MUNICIPALITY.

IN THIS CASE, WE MEET THAT QUALIFICATION AND THEY WOULD PREFER TO WORK WITH US. THE OPPORTUNITY IS WE GET ESSENTIALLY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF REVENUE OFF THE DEVELOPMENT THAT OCCURS THERE. ONE OF THE THINGS WE ARE LOOKING AT, THAT THE ISSUE RAISES IS THEY HAVE DEBATED THAT PROJECT, THE NEW SENIOR HOUSING AND WHILE THAT IS IMPORTANT TO US, BECAUSE WHEN THEY DO IT TIP FOR ABATEMENT.

THERE WILL BE LITTLE REVENUE FROM FROM THE FIRE MILLAGE APPLIED TO THAT PROJECT. IT WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT WE ARE FINALIZING SOME EVALUATION FOR THAT THAT MAY PLAY INTO OUR DISCUSSIONS ON THE JED.

IT PLAYS INTO A DISCUSSION THAT WE WANT THIS JED TO LEAD TO WHICH WILL NOT RENEGOTIATE THE TOWNSHIP FIRE AGREEMENT WHICH HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED SINCE ITS INCEPTION.

THAT IS PROBABLY THE MORE IMPORTANT THING.

EDUCATION AS TO WHAT A JED IS IN THE FACT WE RE MAKING TAX MONEY THAT WE WOULD NOT OTHERWISE MAKE IT ALL,?

>> RIGHT. >> I THINK WE REMEMBER HE LAST JED DISCUSSION AND THE BENEFIT IT IS TO US AND WHY IT IS DONE.

IF YOU COULD COME BACK AND GIVE US THE SAME PRESENTATION AGAIN,

[01:10:03]

I'M SURE THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL. >> IN THIS CASE THERE IS NOT A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF REVENUE BECAUSE THERE IS NOT A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF INCOME TAX OFF THAT TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT.

IT IS MORE LIKE IT WAS WITH PERRY.

DO YOU WANT TO PARTNER WHERE THE TOWNSHIP IS TRYING TO DO SOMETHING TO CREATE A REVENUE STREAM FOR THEM THAT THEY WOULDN'T OTHERWISE HAVE AN IN THE PAST WE HAVE VIEWED IT AS, YOU KNOW, THEY ARE OUR PARTNERS ON MANY FRONTS AND WE ARE

WILLING TO DO THAT IF THEY ARE. >> THAT IS THE SPIRIT IN WHICH WE HAVE ENGAGED WITH THEM SO FAR.

>> THE SECOND THING, THE MEMO WILL BE FORTHCOMING ON THAT AND THEN IT WILL BE ON THE AGENDA FOLLOWING YOUR RECEIPT OF THE MEMO. ADDITIONALLY YOU WILL GET SOME INFORMATION ON WORTHINGTON POOLS I THINK WE ENT OUT RESEARCH ON JOINT RECREATION DISTRICTS IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND WE WILL FOLLOW UP ON THAT.

I APPRECIATE MR. BARNHART'S WORK ON THAT.

I DISTRIBUTE IT THAT ALSO TO THE BOARD CHAIR AS WELL AS DOCTOR BOWERS. THE WORTHINGTON SCHOOLS ARE EXPECTED TO TALK ABOUT WORTHINGTON POOLS AND GENERALLY THE ISSUE OF HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT JOINT WRECK DISTRICT R IF THEY INCLUDE THEM IN A FUTURE LEVY. THOSE ISSUES AS EARLY AS NEXT

MONDAY. >> MAYOR WOODARDS: ONE OF THE THINGS I'M GOING TO SEND OUT TO YOU THIS WEEK IS DOCTOR BOWERS COMMUNICATIONS WITH THIS BOARD AND UM IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT ALREADY THE A COMPILATION OF THE WRITTEN PUBLIC FEEDBACK THAT WE RECEIVED AT THE DECEMBER PUBLIC MEETING REGARDING WORTHINGTON POOLS. WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THOSE, BECAUSE I THINK THE PARTIES WILL BE MEETING AGAIN IN FEBRUARY. I WANT TO BRING BACK THE ISSUE IN FEBRUARY AND JUST TALK ABOUT WHERE WE ARE ONCE WE HAVE HEARD THE SCHOOLS, THE PUBLIC FEEDBACK AND EVERYBODY HAS HAD A CHANCE TO DIGEST THE RESEARCH. UM EXPECT THAT.

UM AND, LASTLY UM, TONIGHT WE HAD AN OPEN HOUSE FOR THE MCCORD PARK PLAYGROUND. UM THIS IS A COMPONENT OF ANOTHER COUNSEL PRIORITY UM THAT YOU ARTICULATED WHICH IS REHABILITATING MCCORD PARK. ONE OF THE MOST CRITICAL COMPONENTS OF THE PROJECT ON ONE OF THE ONES THAT NEED TO MOVE FORWARD KIND OF REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE DO WITH THE TOTAL FUNDING FOR THE PROJECT IS THE PLAYGROUND FEATURE.

MR. HURLEY WANTED TO GO AHEAD AND GET PUBLIC FEEDBACK ON THAT BECAUSE THAT PLAYGROUND NEEDS REPLACEMENT NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE REMAINDER OF THE PARK AS WELL AS WE WANT TO FULFILL OUR COMMITMENT WITH THE TRAIN OBSERVATION DECK.

SO, OUR CONSULTANTS HAVE DONE A GREAT VIDEO THAT WAS A PART OF THE PUBLIC PROCESS THIS EVENING. MR. HURLEY IS GOING TO SHARE

THAT WITH YOU. >> THANK YOU.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNSEL, AS YOU KNOW, WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE OVERALL DESIGN FOR THE PARK AND THE PLAYGROUND HAS REALLY BEEN THE PIECE WE HAVE BEEN MOVING ON HERE RECENTLY. ONE INTERESTING THING IS WE HAVE HAD 156 CHILDREN GIVE DIRECT INPUTS ON THE DESIGN THAT WAS SHARED THIS EVENING AT THE OPEN HOUSE TO BOTH OUR ANNUAL HALLOWEEN EVENT HELD AT THE CENTER AND BY GOING OUT, THANKS TO DOCTOR GERARD, GOING OUT TO US HILL ELEMENTARY WORKING IN THEIR CLASSROOMS. YOU KNOW, IT IS ONE THING TO HAVE A FEW KIDS COME BY OUR OPEN HOUSE, BUT WE ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE WE GOT A LOT OF KIDS INVOLVED IN THIS WHICH IS NEAT TRADE AS WELL AS THEIR PARENTS HAD A LOT OF ADULTS AT THIS SPECIAL EVENT AS WELL. TONIGHT WE WERE ABLE TO SHOW THIS. IT WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE IN THE CITY'S WEBSITE. YOU CAN GET THERE FROM THE MAIN PAGE TO SEE NOT ONLY THE VIDEO, BUT SOME ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE ACTUAL DESIGN AND THERE WILL BE A PLACE FOR COMMENTS.

AS WE KNOW, NOT EVERYONE CAN MAKE IT OUT AT A SPECIFIC TIME.

WE WILL DO THAT FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AND THEN THAT WILL LEAD TO A FINAL DESIGN OF THIS THAT WILL COME BACK TO THE PARKS COMMISSION AND ULTIMATELY TO YOU.

WE FEEL LIKE YOU'RE IN A POSITION TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE FUNDING. I JUST WANTED TO SHARE THE VIDEO TONIGHT. IT IS REALLY COOL.

IT IS SOMETHING I HAVE NOT SEEN DONE BEFORE.

WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE WITH THE AUDIENCE AND YOU, AND I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AFTERWARDS.

♪ MUSIC PLAYING♪ IT'S KIND OF A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE DESIGN FOR THE PLAYGROUND. ON THE WEST EDGE OF THE PARK.

[01:15:09]

♪ MUSIC PLAYING♪ ♪ MUSIC PLAYING♪ THIS IS A BUZZER WHERE YOU CAN START A TIMER AND COMPLETE AN OBSTACLE COURSE.

♪ MUSIC PLAYING♪ INSPIRED BY THE AMERICAN NINJA

WARRIOR. >> DOESN'T HAVE A HIGH SCORE

FEATURE? >> IT DOES NOT KEEP TRACK OF THE HIGH SCORES FORTUNATELY. ♪ MUSIC PLAYING♪ OTHER IMAGES ON THE CITY'S WEBSITE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR FEEDBACK YOU CAN PASS THAT ALONG. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK THROUGH THAT PROCESS AND GET THAT BACK AROUND TO YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD SCOUT PROJECT FOR THE SCOUTS TO GO ONLINE, TAKE A LOOK AT IT, SEND IN SOME FEEDBACK. A GOOD WAY TO PARTICIPATE.

THE WHOLE PARK FOR A FEW SECONDS, PLEASE.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS SPECTACULAR I JUST WANTED TO LOOK AT THAT WHOLE GRAPHIC IF POSSIBLE FOR A FEW MORE SECONDS.

GREAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER COMMENTS REGARDING THE PARK?

IT IS RETTY EXCITING. >> WE HAVE SEVERAL THINGS GOING ON. ONE WE HAVE APPLIED FOR CAPITAL BILL FUNDING. THE VIDEO WILL BE GOING TO OUR LEGISLATORS SOON FOR SURE. AND, THAT PROCESS, YOU KNOW, TAKES A GOOD PART OF THE SPRING. THE OTHER COMPONENT OF THIS IS SO WE BUDGETED $1.8 MILLION IN THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM FOR MCCORD PARK. ONE OF THE OPTIONS FOR HELPING ACCOMMODATE WORTHINGTON POOLS INVESTMENT WOULD BE TO POTENTIALLY REDUCE THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY.

SO, THAT IS WHY WE ARE ONLY MOVING FORWARD WHILE THE PARKS COMMISSION IS DISCUSSING THE PLAN FOR THE WHOLE PARK WE ARE ONLY MOVING FORWARD WITH A LOT OF THE INPUT ON THE PLAYGROUND, BECAUSE WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND THAT WE HAVE THE FUNDING FOR THAT. THE REST OF IT WILL DEPEND ON WHETHER WE GET THE STATE FUNDING AND WHAT WE DO WITH WORTHINGTON

POOLS. >> WHEN WE COME BACK O YOU, YOU KNOW, OF COURSE YOU WILL HAVE HAD MORE TIME TO LOOK AT THESE OTHER PRIORITIES. WE WILL BE ABLE TO, WITH WHAT WE ARE CALLING A PHASE ONE, DO IT AT A MENU TO OPPORTUNITY.

WHETHER WE DECIDE TO DO ALL OF PHASE ONE OR WHETHER WE CUT BACK AND DO CERTAIN PIECES, WE CAN CERTAINLY MOVE AHEAD ON THE PLAYGROUND AND THE TRAIN OBSERVATION AREA.

YOU CAN SEE, FROM THIS MAGE, YOU CAN SEE THE FULL-SIZED SOCCER FIELD, PORTIONS OF THE WALKING TRAIL.

SOME IMPROVEMENTS AROUND THE GARDEN BEING DISCUSSED AND A COUPLE OF SHELTERS IN THE GREEN SPACE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE GARDEN. THOSE ARE ALL THINGS THAT COULD BE DONE INITIALLY IN A PHASE ONE OR COULD WAIT DEPENDING ON THE FUNDING. ♪ MUSIC PLAYING♪

>> I JUST WANTED TO SUGGEST, TOO, I THINK LOOKING AT THAT PLAYGROUND AND THINKING ABOUT THE SHELTERS AND THINGS THAT THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE IDENTIFIED AS AGENT FRIENDLY PROJECTS THAT COULD QUALIFY FOR FUNDING WHERE YOU ARE ENGAGING ALL AGES IN THE COMMUNITY.

I WOULD SUGGEST MAY BE AT THAT AS WELL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FUNDING SOURCES ARE ALWAYS GOOD.

[01:20:02]

>> WE HAD SEVERAL SENIOR STOP BY AT OUR OPEN HOUSE AND COMMENTED THAT THE PAVED TRAIL WOULD BE AN ASSET TO THEM SO THEY CAN WALK AROUND THE PARK. CURRENTLY THERE IS NOT NY KIND OF ROUTES, IF FEW PAVED AREAS BUT THERE'S NOT A WAY TO WALK, YOU KNOW, EVEN ON YOUR OWN R WITH A DOG OR ANYTHING ELSE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHIN G ELSE FROM THE BOARD?

ANYMORE UPDATES? >> THAT IS IT.

I BELIEVE YOU NEED TO DISCUSS APPOINTMENT OF OFFICIALS WHEN

THE OPPORTUNITY ARISES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE WILL GO THROUGH OUR USUAL. I DO HAVE A REPORT MYSELF, I THINK PROBABLY WITH MR. MYERS SHARING A MEETING THAT WE HAD THIS PAST WEEK. WE WILL WAIT UNTIL IT IS OUR

TURN. >> I HAVE HAD A MEETING WITH THE CEMETERY BOARD, WE ARE OUT TO BID FOR ANOTHER PHASE OF THE PROJECT AT THE GARDEN HOUSE AT FLINT ROAD.

HOPEFULLY THESE BIDS COME IN SO WE CAN KEEP ON MOVING FORWARD GETTING A NEW OFFICE OVER AT THE CEMETERY.

WE WILL REPORT BACK MID FEBRUARY.

WORK IS SLOWLY MOVING FORWARD ON THAT.

I WANTED TO COMMENT ABOUT, WE DID GET A LETTER IN OUR DROP PACKET ABOUT HAVING GYPSY MOTH TREATMENTS.

WE HAVE A LOT OF THAT I WAS ALSO VERY WORRIED AND I WANTED TO SHARE MY WHERE WITH EVERYONE ELSE.

THERE WAS AN ABOUT THE LANTERN FLIES THAT ARE ALSO COMING.

I JUST WANTED TO SEE IF THAT WAS ON YOUR RADAR.

IT REALLY UPSET ME. THEY GO AFTER CHERRIES, PEACHES, HARDWOOD, OAKS, POPLAR. IN ADDITION TO ASHMORE AND HATCHELL HIM, GYPSY MOTHS, WE HAVE ANOTHER PEST TO DEAL WITH.

THANK YOU. >> MR. ROBINSON?

>> THIS EVENING, NOTHING, THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I JUST WANT TO MENTION THIS PAST WEEK MR. MYERS, MYSELF, MR. GRAYSON HAD A MEETING ITH A EMBER OF LIFESTYLES COMMUNITIES, ND THEIR ATTORNEY AND THERE WERE NO PLANS, THERE WERE NO NOTES, NO MINUTES, IT WAS JUST A GENERAL DISCUSSION OF WHERE TO PROCEED AND WHERE TO BEGIN, WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. IDEAS ON HOW TO REACH UT TO THE COMMUNITY AND OFFERING SOME GROUPS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT THEY MAY WANT TO CONTACT. SUGGESTED HAVING MEETINGS WITH NEIGHBORS, AND JUST GENERAL CITIZEN GROUPS.

MAYBE HAVE SOME PR PRESENCE, AS THEY GOING FORWARD AND TO BASICALLY LISTEN TO THE COMMUNITY, REACH OUT TO THE COMMUNITY. THERE IS A PROJECT THAT THEY ARE WAITING FOR HER TO THROUGH FIRST AND THEN ONCE THAT PROJECT GOES THROUGH THAN THEY ARE GOING TO START THEIR DIALOGUE WITH GROUPS AND ORGANIZATIONS. ONCE THEY START A DIALOGUE THERE IS NO STOPPING, YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE DIALOGUE GOING ALL THE WAY THROUGH AS YOU ARE WORKING FOR THE PROJECT AND DEVELOPMENT.

I THINK THERE HAS BEEN A GENERAL UNDERSTANDING WITH EVERYBODY, HAVING COMMERCIAL ALONG HIGH STREET AND PRESERVING THE REVEALING AND BEYOND THAT, I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF UNKNOWN.

THOSE TWO THINGS I THINK ARE PRETTY WELL IN AGREEMENT WITH PEOPLE I THINK THE GENTLEMAN THAT WE MET WITH WERE VERY OPEN TO IDEAS, VERY WILLING TO REACH OUT AND TRY TO COMMUNICATE AND TALK TO OUR RESIDENTS AND OUR CITIZENS AND OUR GROUPS.

I THINK IT WAS A VERY, VERY GOOD BEGINNING MEETING.

THEY ARE LOOKING AT LISTENING, AND REACHING OUT.

I THINK THAT IS ALL IMPORTANT. MR. MYERS, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING?

>> I DO. IT STRUCK ME AS A LITTLE ODD THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE A PLAN AND THEY DIDN'T PROFESS TO HAVE A PLAN. I DO WANT TO SAY, I THINK WE DELIVERED A FAIRLY BLUNT MESSAGE IF THEY REALLY DID INTEND ON MOVING FORWARD WITH SOME SORT OF A DEVELOPMENT ON THE CHILDREN'S HOME SITE THEY WERE GOING TO HAVE TO DO IT A GREAT DEAL DIFFERENTLY THAN THEY TRIED THE FIRST TIME.

THE CITY AND COUNSEL DID NOT SUPPORT THEIR FIRST EFFORTS.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BE SUBSTANTIAL CHANGES TO THEIR APPROACH. WHETHER THAT MESSAGE IT WAS

[01:25:03]

RECEIVED OR NOT, IT WAS DELIVERED.

THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO ADD. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DIDN'T JUST HAVE THIS MEETING AND NOBODY KNEW WHAT HAPPENED AND THAT WE WERE DOING ANYTHING SECRETIVE.

WE WANT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW BEING TRANSPARENT THAT THIS IS WHAT THE MEETING WAS, THERE WERE NO PLANTS, THERE WERE NO NOTES, IT WAS JUST A DISCUSSION ON COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND REACHING OUT TO THE COMMUNITY. ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD

ABOUT THAT MEETING? >> NO, I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO

ADD. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHIN G ELSE ANYBODY WANTS TO BRING IN FRONTS OF COUNSEL? IF NOT, MR. ROBINSON WE GO TO EXECUTIVE SESSION TO CONSIDER

[11.A. To consider the appointment of public officials]
