[00:00:06]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WOULD LIKE TO CALL THE MAY 18, 2020 WORTHINGTON CITY COUNCIL MEETING TO ORDER.

WOULD YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL. >>

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WOULD EVERYONE PLEASE RISE FOR THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE AMERICAN FLAG.

OKAY. MS. THRESS, HAVE WE RECEIVED

ANY COMMENTS FROM ANY VISITORS? >> NOT AT THIS TIME, MS.

MICHAEL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYONE OUT THERE INTERESTED ON COMMENTING ON ANYTHING ON OUR AGENDA, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL TO COUNCIL@WORTHINGTON.ORG OR WE HAVE A PHONE NUMBER WE WILL LEAVE UP. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS OR QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE ON THE TOPICS WE WILL BE DISCUSSING TONIGHT.

[5.A. Community Visioning Update Executive Summary: Community Visioning Committee Chair Joe Sherman will provide an update on the work of the committee on the Community Visioning initiative. The slides they are using to present to community groups are attached.]

OKAY, MOVING ON, WE HAVE A SPECIAL PRESENTATION WITH JOE SHERMAN. MR. GREESON, I WILL TURN IT OVER TO YOU FOR THE SPECIAL PRESENTATION.

>> YEAH, GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. IT'S GOOD TO SEE EVERYBODY THIS EVENING AND I HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING WELL.

WE HAVE MR. SHERMAN, CHAIRMAN OF OUR VISIONING COMMITTEE WHO IS PREPARED TO GIVE HIS MONTHLY UPDATE AND THE CORONAVIRUS IS AFFECTING ALL OF OUR COMMITTEES AND ALL OF OUR PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS. AND I THINK HE IS EAGER TO TELL ABOUT HOW THEY ARE ADAPTING CREATIVELY TO THE CHALLENGES PRESENTED TO THE COMMITTEE AS THEY CNTINUE THE VISIONING COMMITTEE EFFORTS. HE AND I HAD A GREAT CONVERSATION LATE LAST WEEK ABOUT ALL THE CREATIVE THINGS THEY ARE DOING TO DO OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT AND I THINK HE IS EAGER TO SHARE IT WITH YOU TONIGHT.

MR. SHERMAN? >> MR. GREESON, THANK YOU SO MUCH. MADAM PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING YOU UP-TO-DATE.

OUR LAST UPDATE WITH THE GROUP WAS ON APRIL 20TH AND WE HAVE HAD TWO VIRTUAL MEETINGS SINCE THAT POINT IN TIME.

LET'S START BY TALKING ABOUT COVID-19.

THE REALITY IS THIS IS A STRANGE NEW KIND OF NORMAL.

IT'S DEPRESSING TO SURRENDER TO THIS VIRUS THOUGH.

SO I'S IMPORTANT TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD WITH A REVISED AND NARROWING SCOPE FOCUSED ONTO COMPLETE THE VISIONING PROJECT ON TIME. THAT IS OCTOBER 2020.

WE HAVE ASKED OURSELVES IF THIS IS DOABLE.

WE REALIGNED AND ADJUSTED TO REFLECT TODAY'S REALITIES.

WE HAVE REMAINED PROACTIVE AND WE ARE STAYING OPEN-MINDED ON OUR NEW PATH FORWARD RECOGNIZING THINGS ARE A LITTLE IMPERFECT. IT WILL TAKE A LOT OF TIME AND A LOT OF INDIVIDUAL EFFORTS TO GET THIS OVER THE FINISH LINE.

SO THIS CHANGE IN CULTURE, WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDS WHAT WE ARE DOING AND THAT WE ARE DOING THIS TOGETHER AS A COLLECTIVE GROUP.

AND THAT'S HOW WE WILL ALL SUCCEED.

COVID-19 MAKES THE CONTINUATION OF THIS VISIONING PROJECT ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT. AND I THINK IT'S GOING TO PROVIDE EACH OF US WITH A MORE REFLECTIVE COMMUNITY CONTEXT.

THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO REFLECT UPON THE COMMUNITY TO DEMONSTRATE THIS NOW, IN THIS TIME AND TO GET TO THE CORE OF WHY PEOPLE SIMPLY LOVE WORTHINGTON.

SO LET ME SHARE WITH YOU WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH THIS APPROACH.

IN COUNCIL'S PACKET WE PROVIDED THE MOST RECENT SLIDE PRESENTATION. THIS PRESENTATION IS DONE BY THREE PEOPLE OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE WITH EACH TAKING A SLIDE IN THIS VIRTUAL PLATFORM. SO AS IN THIS LIVE ENVIRONMENT, THIS PRESENTATION WILL BE FLUID AND CHANGING BASED ON THE FEEDBACK FROM THE COMMUNITY. IN FACT, YOU WILL SEE, WE HAVE

[00:05:01]

CREATED A NEW SLIDE AS OF TODAY. WHAT'S ON THE SCREEN RGHT NOW IS THE INTRODUCTORY SLIDE. AND THIS WILL SHOW THE DATE AND IT WILL SHOW THE PARTICIPANTS AND THEN ALSO, AS A PART OF THE DIALOGUE, WE SIMPLY USE THIS AS A WAY TO GREET THE FOLKS.

WE INTRODUCE THE PRESENTERS. WE THEN MENTION THE WEBSITE, WHICH YOU CAN SEE VISIONWORTHINGTON.ORG AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO ENROLL AND REGISTER.

AND THEN WE FINISH THIS SLIDE BY STATING OUR GOAL IS TO SHARE THIS INFORMATION AND IDEAS IN AN OPEN DISCUSSION FORMAT AND TO ASK YOU TO HELP US COLLABORATIVELY DEVELOP A CONSENSUS AROUND THE DESIRED FUTURE FOR WORTHINGTON, ITS RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES. THE NEXT SLIDE WE CREATED TODAY.

AND WE FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO GET OUR MISSION STATEMENT OUT THERE. SO EVERYBODY CAN UNDERSTAND THAT ON FEBRUARY 19TH, 2019, THE WORTHINGTON CITY COUNCIL FORMALLY ESTABLISHED THE VISIONING COMMITTEE AND ITS MISSION AROUND COUNCIL RESOLUTION 10-2019.

AS YOU CAN READ, OUR TASKS ARE TO COLLECT THE COMMUNITY VIEWS, ORGANIZE AND ANALYZE THEM, AND PROVIDE TO COUNCIL WITH A DRAFT VISION FOR THEIR CONSIDERATION AND OUR FUTURE CITY'S ACTIONS.

SO WE CAN BEGIN OUR PRESENTATION WITH OUR MISSION, OUR VISION AND OUR GOALS. NEXT W MOVE ONTO ADDRESS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. AND THAT IS THE COVID-19 SCENARIO. THE DIALOGUE B LAURA IS SIMPLY STATING THAT OUR COMMITTEE HAS BEEN MEETING REGULARLY SINCE AUGUST. AND OUR PROGRESS WAS SLOW AND STEADY AS WE ESTABLISHED OUR OWN GOVERNANCE AND BEGIN CREATING WORKING SUBCOMMITTEES. IN MARCH, WE WERE SET TO LAUNCH OUR IN-PERSON ENGAGEMENTS WITH RELEVANT COMMUNITY GROUPS ACROSS THE CITY. HOWEVER COVID-19 DISRUPTED THAT TIME LINE JUST AS IT DISRUPTED OUR LIVES AND COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AS REFERENCED IN THE ABOVE OBSERVATION, IT'S ABOUT A CRISIS.

SIMPLY MEANING DANGER AND OPPORTUNITY.

AND WE ARE ALL WORKING TO ENSURE THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IS NOT STOPPED BUT RATHER JUST ALTERED.

SO WE WILL SOLICIT INPUT AND WE ARE AKING YOU TO HELP CREATE THIS NEW NARRATIVE AROUND THE COMMUNITY'S VISION FOR OUR GREAT CITY OF WORTHINGTON. WE NEXT THEN MOVE ONTO INTRODUCE THE COMMITTEE, WHAT A WONDERFUL GROUP OF PEOPLE.

AND WE TALK ABOUT HOW WE WERE SELECTED AND BROUGHT INTO THIS AND THEN WE GO ONTO THE BALANCE OF OUR PRESENTATION.

SO I DON'T WANT TO TAKE YOU THROUGH ALL THAT BUT I WOULD LIKE TO THEN TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR PRESENTATIONS AND THE SCHEDULES THAT WE HAVE CREATED. WE HAVE REACHED OUT TO 22 DIFFERENT GROUPS ACROSS THE CITY.

WE HAVE ALREADY MADE PRESENTATIONS TO SEVERAL TO INCLUDE BUILDING WORTHINGTON'S FUTURE, THE P.C.P.W. GROUP, WARD IS THIS THURSDAY. WE HAVE TALKED WITH THE CHAMBER, THE COUNCIL AND P.T.A.'S OVER THE PARTNERSHIP ETC. SO IN CONJUNCTION THOUGH WE ARE WORKING CLOSELY WITH JEAN ON A WEBINAR.

THIS WILL BE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE.

THIS IS TO GIVE THE COMMUNITY ACCESS TO THE SLIDE PRESENTATION. AND THAT WAY YOU COULD VIEW THIS AT YOUR OWN TIME. SO BEFORE I GO ON AND MOVE ON FROM THE SLIDE PRESENTATION, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS

TIME? >> MR. SHERMAN?

>> YES? >> FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR THAT INTRODUCTION AND I LOVE YOUR ATTITUDE AND GUIDING PHILOSOPHY ABOUT NO BETTER TIME.

HATS OFF TO YOU GUYS, THANK YOU. QUICK QUESTION.

HOW DO YOU SEE THE PURPOSE OF THE INITIAL, THE OUTREACH PRESENTATIONS TO COMMUNITY GROUPS? ARE YOU VIEWING IT PRIMARILY AS A WAY OF GETTING THEM AND THEIR MEMBERSHIP PARTICIPATING OR IS THERE ACTUAL DIALOGUE THAT'S FEEDING INTO ANY KIND OF DATA COLLECTION YOU ARE DOING?

>> AT THIS POINT COUNCILMEMBER ROBINSON, THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION. THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS IS TO DRIVE FOLKS TO THE WEBSITE. IT'S AN INTERACTIVE WEBSITE AND AS YOU WILL SEE IN A FEW MINUTES WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT INITIATIVE AND THEN THAT DOES LEAD TO OVER ARCHING CONVERSATIONS. ONCE WE HAVE CMPLETED THE SLIDE PRESENTATION WE THEN OPEN IT UP FOR QUESTIONS.

BUT IT'S MORE OR LESS JUST TO TALK ABOUT HW TO GET ENGAGED.

>> THAT'S GREAT, THANK YOU. YOU GOT IT SPOT ON, THANK YOU.

>> MY PLEASURE. THE FIRST SLIDE IS REALLY, WHAT WE HAVE DONE HERE, WHAT I HAVE DONE IS TRY TO UPDATE NOW THE

[00:10:02]

SCOPE OF WORK. THE FIRST SLIDE IS THE ENGAGEMENT AS OF TODAY. AND AS YOU CAN SEE OUR SCOPE OF WORK TALKED ABOUT THE STAKEHOLDER INTERVIEWS WHICH WE HAVE COMPLETED. THE SPEAKERS' BUREAU WHICH WE JUST WENT THROUGH THE SLIDE PRESENTATION, IT'S MOVED NOW TO THAT VIRTUAL PLATFORM. WE HAVE A WORKSHOP, WE HVE -- WE HAVE A FLYER THAT WAS PREPARED THAT WE CAN TALK ABOUT HERE IN A MINUTE THAT OUTLINES WHAT THAT IS ABOUT.

BUT THESE ARE FOUR VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS THAT HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED. THE FOCUS GROUPS WILL FOLLOW THE WORKSHOPS AND THEN OUR PUBLIC SURVEY WILL BE PRESENTED IN AUGUST. WHAT WILL THEN FOLLOW WILL BE DIFFERENT VISITING SESSIONS TO GATHER INFORMATION WITH OUR FINAL PRESENTATION TO BE MADE. SO THAT BEING SAID, WE THEN WANT TO TALK A LITTLE ABOUT THE SCOPE OF ENGAGEMENT.

AND THESE ARE THE ACTIVITIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY ONGOING.

SO THE ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN AND THE ORIGINAL SCOPE OF WORKSHOP HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND THIS TALKS ABOUT THE SPEAKERS AND THE RESEARCH DEMOGRAPHICS. NOW THE COMMUNITY EDUCATION PIECE WE ARE CURRENTLY, IT IS ONGOING RIGHT NOW.

WE ARE DOING THIS THROUGH THE WEBSITE AND WITH THE HELP OF THE CITY'S MEDIA PLATFORM. MOST IMPORTANTLY IS NOW OUR COMMUNITY PLAN. WHAT WE HAVE DEVISED NOW AND ARE IMPLEMENTING IS WHAT WE ARE CALLING THE FIVE PILLARS.

THE FIRST PILLAR IS THE WEBSITE. THE WEBSITE IS REALLY CRITICAL BECAUSE WITH THIS IS THE REGISTRATION PIECE.

AND WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE IS WE ARE PARTNERING NOW WITH LOCAL NON-PROFITS. WE ARE STARTING WITH THE WORTHINGTON RESOURCE PANTRY. SO BETWEEN NOW AND MAY 2ND, WHEN YOU VISIT THE WEBSITE YOU WILL SEE A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN REGISTER. THE COMMITTEE WILL MAKE A DONATION OF $1 TO THE WORTHINGTON FOOD PANTRY TO SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED DURING THIS TIME OF NEED.

WE LOK FORWARD TO ALL $500 GOING TO OUR FRIENDS AT THE RESOURCE PANTRY. WE JUST FEEL PEOPLE COULD BE DEDICATED TO HELP RAISE MONEY FOR A NON-PROFIT BY REGISTERING FOR THIS SOCIAL DISTANCING ENVIRONMENT.

SO THE WEBSITE, AS YOU WILL SEE, IS VERY INTERACTIVE.

WE HAVE NEW TILES CALLED "HEARD ON THE STREET" WHICH IS INTERVIEWS WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER. ALSO FROM THE SOR OF ACTIVITIES.

WE ALSO HAVE A TILE TO TELL YOUR STORY AND ALSO TO CELEBRATE OUR COMMUNITY. I THINK THE REAL KEY HERE IS AS WE BEGIN THIS REGISTRATION PROCESS BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF OCTOBER WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE WHERE THE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY ARE TYING IN. AND IF IN FACT, WE FIND HOLES OR POCKETS WHERE FOLKS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO EITHER GET ONLINE OR CAN'T REGISTER, WE ARE GOING TO FIND A WAY TO GET TO YOU.

TO BE ABLE TO SARE AND SHOW YOU EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO AS YOU ARE A VERY VITAL PART OF THIS COMMUNITY AND YOUR VOICE IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS EVERYBODY ELSE.

THE COVID-19 ENVIRONMENT IS NOT GOING TO ALLOW US TO GO DOOR TO DOOR OR DO DOOR HANGERS. BUT A YOU SEE IN PILLAR NUMBER 5 WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT MAY HELP.

IN THE INTERIM WE ARE LOOKING AT FACEBOOK POSTS TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD FACEBOOK PAGES. WE ARE GOING THROUGH DIFFERENT THINGS SUCH AS THE FACEBOOK ADS AND THE SPEAKERS' BUREAU.

ALSO, YOU WILL SE AROUND TOWN, WE JUST STARTED TODAY, THE SIGNAGE. THIS IS GOING TO BE, I THINK A PRETTY INTERESTING OPPORTUNITY. YOU ARE GOING TO SEE 30 DIFFERENT YARD SIGNS SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY TALKING ABOUT WHAT'S YOUR VISION.

AND THERE'S FIVE OTHER TOPICS. I'LL LEAVE THAT FOR YOU ALL TO COUNT AND SEE HOW MANY OF THE FIVE YOU DISCOVER.

BUT WE FIGURED THIS IS A NICE WAY TO GET OUT AMONGST THE COMMUNITY AND BE ABLE TO, YOU COULD ASK THE QUESTION, WHAT IS THIS VISION WORTHINGTON THING. ONLINE NOW WE ALSO HAVE A PUBLIC INPUT OPPORTUNITY. WE ARE DOING SPEAKERS' BUREAU WEBINAR, WHICH I JUST TALKED ABOUT.

THE SOR AND THE FOCUS GROUPS I TALKED ABOUT.

AND WITHIN THE VISION WORTHINGTON, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE QUESTIONS AND THESE TYPE OF THINGS POSTED ONLINE.

[00:15:08]

TURNING THE POWERPOINT WITH JEAN'S HELP FROM THE CITY.

JEAN OLIVER HAS BEEN A GREAT RESOURCE.

THIS IS OUR FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM.

WE HAVE CREATED A FACEBOOK AD AND WE ARE PROMOTING THE SITE REGISTRATION. AGAIN, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE FOOD PANTRY DONATIONS. WE ARE ALSO SENDING PREPARED PRESS RELEASES TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS, THROUGH THE VISIONING COMMITTEE, THROUGH POGA MEYER AND THIS ALL STARTED ON 5/4. WE ARE JOINING THE NEIGHBORHOOD FACEBOOK PAGES. WE WERE REALLY PLEASED TO SEE THERE ARE 3,744 MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY THAT ARE PART OF THESE FACEBOOK PAGES. OUR FEELING IS ONE POST BEGINS WITH THE WORD OF MOUTH THAT BEGINS TAT SPREADING OF WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO CREATE HERE WITHIN THE VISION WORTHINGTON.

ALSO TE GROUPS. AS OF TODAY, WE HAVE AN E-NEWSLETTER SENT ON 5/4. WE HAVE HAD 653 OF THESE OPENED WITH 70 CLICKS GOING TO VISIONWORTHINGTON.ORG.

AS OF TODAY WE HAD 670 PEOPLE OPEN THIS.

ANOTHER 23 FOR THE SIGN UP. ON THE FACEBOOK PAGE TO WORTHINGTON FACEBOOK PAGE, AS OF 5/4, 3,122 HAVE REACHED OUT.

SO HOW MANY OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE SEEN THIS POST IN THEIR FEED? AND THERE'S BEEN 91 ENGAGEMENTS TO INCLUDE CLICKS AND COMMENTS AND SHARES.

AND LASTLY ON THE WORTHINGTON FACEBOOK PAGE AS OF THE 13TH, 881 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN REACHED. THE POINT OF THIS, THE COVID-19 DISRUPTION WON'T INTERFERE WITH OUR OVERALL PURPOSE.

WE CONCLUDE THE SPEAKERS' BUREAU PRESENTATION, WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL VISION FOR WORTHINGTON? YOU CAN DO THREE THINGS TO HELP. FIRST GIVE US FEEDBACK AND HOW YOU THINK WE CAN IMPROVE IT SO IT BEGINS TO RESONATE IN THE COMMUNITY. I WANT YOU TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS, SUGGESTIONS, IDEAS AND CONCERNS.

HOPES AND FEARS WITH US. AND LASTLY, REGISTER FOR THE UPDATES, FIND PUBLIC PARTICIPATION EVENTS AND PARTICIPATE IN THE ONLINE PROCESS.

THIS CONCLUDES MY REMARKS. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> ANY QUESTIONS FOR ANYBODY? >> NO, I'VE GOT ANOTHER ONE.

>> PEOPLE TO GO TO THE WEBSITE OR ANOTHER WAY OF ASKING THE QUESTION, ARE ALL SURVEYS GOING TO BE COMPLETED ONLINE EARLIER OR IS THERE GOING TO BE A HARD COPY AVAILABLE?

>> TANK YOU, AGAIN. I NOTICED THAT I SKIPPED NUMBER 5. I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT.

DAVED, -- DAVID, TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, THESE ARE POSTCARDS. THE FIRST WILL GO OUT SHORTLY.

IT WLL PROMOTE WEBSITE RELAUNCH.

THE SOR ACTIVITY AND POMOTE THE SURVEY MONKEY PUBLIC SURVEY THAT WILL BE SOON TO BE FOLLOWED.

THE SECOND IS GOING TO BE A NEIGHBOR THAT WILL HAVE A RETURN POSTAGE. WE ARE ASKING FOLKS FOR FEEDBACK COMING BACK INTO AND LEADING INTO THE BIGGER SURVEY THAT WILL HAPPEN IN AUGUST. SO I THINK YOU WILL SEE THROUGHOUT THE THREAD OF THE WEBSITE AND THROUGH THESE, THERE WILL BE SMALL INDIVIDUAL LITTLE SURVEY QUESTIONS THAT WILL BE ASKED. DEPENDING ON THE ENVIRONMENT IN OCTOBER, MY SENSE, THIS SURVEY WILL BE VIRTUAL.

AND THEN WE WILL FOLLOW IT UP ACCORDINGLY.

BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME, I THINK THAT'S PROBABLY THE WAY IT'S GOING TO GO BUT WE ARE OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS.

>> THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FROM ANYBODY?

>> I HAVE A QUESTION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS.

DOROTHY? >> R. DOROTHY: REGARDING THE MAILER, WE HAD A GOAL OF REACHING 80% IN WORTHINGTON.

[00:20:02]

OUR CURRENT COMPOSITION OF OUR VISIONING COMMITTEE DOESN'T HAVE AS MUCH DIVERSITY AS WE HAVE IN THE COMMUNITY.

WE WERE HOPING TO TRY TO GET AS MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED.

WHERE ARE THESE MAILERS GOING TO? HOW ARE WE GOING TO TRY TO MAKE SURE WE GET AS MANY PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY INVOLVED AND GET EVERYONE INVOLVED? OBVIOUSLY WE DO SKEW MORE UPPER CLASS, MORE WHITE.

BUT WE DO HAVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE A LOT OF DIVERSITY AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND HOW ARE WE GOING TO TRY TO REACH

EVERYONE? >> THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION, AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT. WE ARE GOING TO REACH OUT TO 5,917 RESIDENTS. THIS IS WHERE THIS IS GOING.

WE ARE USING THE LISTS THAT HAVE BEEN COMPILED BY SEVERAL COUNCIL CANDIDATES TO MAKE SURE WE TOUCH EVERYBODY AND EVERY HOUSEHOLD THAT WE CAN IN THE COMMUNITY TO BE ABLE TO PROMOTE THIS DIVERSITY THAT YOU SO RIGHTLY POINTED OUT.

>> R. DOROTHY: WHICH COUNCIL CANDIDATES PROVIDED THIS LIST?

>> I'M NOT SAYING WE WENT TO SPECIFIC COUNCIL PEOPLE.

I'M SAYING YOU REACHED OUT DURING YOUR CAMPAIGNS TO GO DOOR TO DOOR. WHAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO IS TAKE THIS LIST OF 5,917 RESIDENCES TO MAIL ON THESE

POSTCARDS. >> R. DOROTHY: I WOULD LIKE TO GET MORE IFORMATION ABOUT WHAT THESE RESIDENTS ARE.

HOPING EVERY HOUSEHOLD, APARTMENT COMPLEX IN

WORTHINGTON. >> IT IS.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE DONE. WE HAVE REACHED OUT ACROSS THE

CITY. >> R. DOROTHY: THANK YOU.

>> I WILL BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THAT LIST.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO DO THAT. >> PESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY,

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >> I WAS GOING TO SAY, IF IT'S HELPFUL I BELIEVE THAT MAILING LIST CAME FROM ANNE BROWN.

WE USE FOR OUR MAILED NEWSLETTERS AND OTHER MAILINGS

WES SEND OUT AS A CITY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK

YOU, APPRECIATE THAT. >> THANK YOU, ROBIN.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? HEARING NONE, WE WILL THANK YOU AND THE VISIONING COMMITTEE FOR THE HARD WORK AND HOW DIFFICULT IT'S BEEN TO BE ABLE TO MOVE FROM THE ORIGINAL PLANS INTO THE COVID-19 ERA AND BY COMING THROUGH AND TRYING TO COME UP WITH THE BEST RESULT YOU POSSIBLY CAN. WE CAN THANK THE ENTIRE VISIONING COMMITTEE FOR THEIR EFFORTS, DEDICATION AND WILLINGNESS TO TRY TO BRING A GOOD VISIONING RESULT TO OUR

[7.A. Ordinance No. 10-2020 Code Amendment - Tourist Homes To Amend Section 1123.30(b) and Section 1123.73 to the Codified Ordinances of the City of Worthington to Modify the Definition of Dwelling Unit and Add a Definition of Transient Guest to Tourist Homes in the Definition Section of the Planning & Zoning Code. Executive Summary: This Ordinance amends Section 1123.30(b) and Section 1123.73 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Worthington to amend the definition of Dwelling Unit and add a definition of Transient Guest to Tourist Homes in the Definition Section of the Planning & Zoning Code. Recommendation: Motion to Amend and Approve as Amended Legislative History: Introduced on March 2, 2020 by City Council and referred the the Municipal Planning Commission for a recommendation.]

MOVING ONTO ORDINANCE NUMBER 10-2020 TO AMEND SECTION 1123.30 B, SECTION 11 23.73 TO THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON TO MODIFY THE DEFINITION OF DWELLING UNIT AND ADD A DEFINITION OF TRANSIENT GUEST TOURIST HOMES IN THE DEFINITION SECTION OF THE PLANNING AND ZONING CODE.

MR. GREESON? >> YEAH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL,

[00:25:05]

MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. AS YOU KNOW, WE IDENTIFIED THE NEED TO TIGHTEN UP THE LANGUAGE IN OUR CODE.

REGARDING SHORT-TERM RENTAL OF REZ -- RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES OF LESS THAN 30 DAYS. I WILL TURN IT OVER TO MR. BROWN AS A PROCESS REMINDER. IF YOU RECALL WE INTRODUCED THIS ORDINANCE QUITE A WHILE AGO IT WAS REFERRED TO THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION AND THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION CONSIDERED IT AND HAS RECOMMENDED ALONG WITH STAFF ITS APPROVAL. MR. BROWN WILL GO THROUGH THE DETAILS OF WHAT IT'S ACCOMPLISHING AND THEN WE WILL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.

MR. BROWN? >> THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. JUST A HEADS UP, THE LIGHTS ARE FLICKERING AT THE OFFICE SO IF I LOSE YOU, I WILL CALL IN.

AS MR. GREESON MENTIONED, YOU DID REFER THIS TO THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION. THEY DID HEAR THIS REQUEST TO MAKE AN AMENDMENT TO THE PLANNING AND ZONING CODE AT THEIR MARCH 12TH MEETING OF 2020.

A LITTLE BACKGROUND OF THIS, WITHIN THE PLANNING AND ZONING CODE, WE HAVE A CODE FROM 1971 BUT A CITY FOUNDED IN 1803, DEVELOPED PREDOMINANTLY IN THE 60, 70'S AND 80'S SO THERE'S NO PERFECT CODE. SO FROM TIME TO TIME WE WILL LOOK AT THE CODE AND REALIZE WE NEED TO BRING IT UP-TO-DATE.

ONE KEY THING THAT'S POPPED UP OVER AT LEAST THE LAST SIX MONTHS IS DWELLING HOMES TRANSIENT UNITS.

FIRST OF ALL THERE'S BEEN AN INCREASE IN AIRBNB, HOME AWAY FROM HOME. CURRENTLY WORTHINGTON DOESN'T PERMIT SHORT-TERM RENTALS IN OUR JURISDICTION.

MANY OF OUR SURROUNDING JURISDICTION REGULATE THEM IN SOME FASHION, OR MNY OF THEM DON'T PERMIT THEM AT ALL.

ONE THING THAT CITY STAFF HAS DONE, WE HAVE ALWAYS CONSIDERED ANY SHORT-TERM RENTAL OR REZ SHALL PROPERTY FOR LESS THAN 30 DAYS AS A TOURIST ZONE. QUICK DEFINITION OF TOURIST HOME MEANS A BUILDING OTHER THAN A HOTEL WHERE LODGING IT PROVIDED AND OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC FOR COMPENSATION FOR NOT MORE THAN 15 INDIVIDUALS AND OPEN TO TRANSIENT GUESTS.

THE REFERENCE TO TRANSIENT GUESTS IS ONE OF THE THINGS WE FELT WE ALSO NEEDED TO CLEAN UP IN THE CODE BECAUSE THERE WRE SEVERAL QUESTIONS WHAT DOES TRANSIENT GUEST MEAN.

LOOKING AT THE OHIO BUILDING CODE REFERRED TO TRANSIENT AS IT PERTAINS TO 30 DAYS OR LESS, SO THAT'S WHERE WE WERE TYING OUR DEFINITION. WITH THAT, WE ALSO LOOKED AT THE DFINITION OF DWELLING UNITS.

WITH OUR DEFINITION SECTION, THE DEFINITION OF A DWELLING UNIT REFERENCED THE RENTAL OR LEASE ON A WEEKLY, MONTHLY OR LONGER BASIS. SO WE FELT IF WE WRE CLEANING UP THE DEFINITION OF IN THE TOURIST HOME AND PROVIDING A DEFINITION OF TRANSIENT GUESTS THAT THE DEFINITION OF A DWELLING UNIT SHOULD NOT REFERENCE ITEMS FOR A WEEKLY BASIS WE FELT IT WAS AT LEAST A 30-DAY MONTHLY AS MANY OF THE COUNCILMEMBERS KNOW, OVER THE PAST SIX MONTHS WE HAVE HAD SOME AIRBNB'S POP UP. THE MOST PREDOMINANT WAS ONE COLONIAL HILLS OFF PARK BOULEVARD WHERE AN INDIVIDUAL PURCHASED THE HOME STRICTLY TO USE FOR INCOME RNTAL FOR AN AIRBNB AS THEIR PREDOMINANT WAY OF BEING USED.

SO WITH THAT, WE WENT AND TALKED WTH THE APPLICANTS OR THE PROPERTY OWNERS, CITED THEM, THEY ENDED UP APPEALING AND GOING BEFORE THE BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS IN MARCH.

AND THE BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS FELT THAT USE WAS MET THE DEFINITION OF A TOURIST HOME. WITH THAT WE FELT THERE WAS A NEED TO COME TO CITY COUNCIL TO CLEAN UP THAT DEFINITION OF A TOURIST HOME, CLEAN UP THE DEFINITION OF DWELLING UNIT AND ADD A DEFINITION TO TRANSIENT GUEST.

WHAT WE PROPOSED THAT'S BEFORE YOU AND I WILL SHARE MY SCREEN REAL QUICK. IS WITH OUR CURRENT LANGUAGE, AGAIN I JUST READ THE DEFINITION TO YOU BUT WITH THE PROPOSED LANGUAGE WE WANTED TO ADD ONE ADDITIONAL SENTENCE TRANSIENT GUEST MEANS A PERSON OR PERSONS OCCUPYING FOR 30 CONSECUTIVE DAYS OR LESS. THAT WATHE DIFFERENCE FROM THE CURRENT LANGUAGE TO THE PROPOSED LANGUAGE.

AND UNDER THE LANGUAGE FOR DWELLINGS, DWELLING MEANS ONE

[00:30:05]

ROOM OR ROOMS CONNECTED TOGETHER.

IT'S THE WEEKLY PORTION WE FELT NEEDED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE NEW DEFINITION TO BE CONSISTENT WITH WHAT WAS PROPOSED WITH THE TOURIST HOMES 30 CONSECUTIVE DAYS.

SO WITH THAT, THE BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS HAD A LENGTHY CONVERSATION. THEY DECIDED THE TOURIST HOME, THE AIRBNB THOUGHT THAT DEFINITION OF A TOURIST HOME, WHEN WE WENT TO THE COMMISSION THEY FELT THERE WAS A NEED TO CLARIFY IT, CLEAN UP THE DEFINITIONS AND ESPECIALLY WHERE THERE WAS CONFLICTING CODE LANGUAGE THAT NEEDED TO BE CLEANED UP. IT DID LEAD INTO FURTHER DISCUSSIONS OF CURRENTLY TOURIST HOMES ARE NOT PERMITTED IN OUR RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS. SO THE COMMISSION HAD, YOU KNOW, A CONVERSATION THEY FELT NEEDED TO BE GUIDANCE FROM COUNCIL IF THERE WAS EVER AN INTEREST IN LOOKING AT OTHER AREAS OF THE CITY WHERE A TOURIST HOME MAY BE RELEVANT OR WHERE AIRBNB'S MAY BE PERMITTED OR CONDITIONALLY PERMITTED WITH CERTAIN CONDITIONS. BUT THEN THE COMMISSION DISCUSSED THE DEFINITIONS OF DWELLING UNITS, SINGLE FAMILY DUPLEXES, MULTIFAMILIES, ALL THOSE DIFFERENT DEFINITIONS.

BUT FELT WHAT NEEDED TO COME BEFORE YOU TONIGHT, AT LEAST STARTED DOWN THE PATH OF CLEANING UP THE ZONING AND PLANNING CODE SO WE AREN'T PUTTING OUR BOARDS OR COMMISSIONS OR YOU, AS COUNCILMEMBERS IN A SITUATION WHERE THERE IS CONFLICTING INFORMATION AND CONFLICTING CODES. I APOLOGIZE FOR RAMBLING.

I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> MR. MYERS, YOU CUT OUT THERE. WHAT WAS THAT?

>>

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NO. >> NOT REALLY.

>> I'M GETTING THE SAME STORM YOU ARE.

>> WHILE MR. MYERS IS MOVING AROUND, IN THE LAST SIX YEARS HERE WE HAVE ONLY HAD ABOUT A DOZEN CASES CONCERNING COMPLAINTS ABOUT AIRBNB'S IN THE CITY.

I WOULD SAY OF THOSE, ONCE WE CONTACTED THE PROPERTY OWNER AND TALKED WITH THEM AND CAME TO RESOLUTION OF THE CODE, THEY STOPPED. THERE'S ONLY THE MOST RECENT ONE THAT APPEALED OUR DECISION ONTO THE BOARD OF ZONING

APPEALS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS WHILE WE ARE WAITING FOR MR.

MYERS? >> I HAVE ONE, PRESIDENT MICHAEL. DAVID.

MR. BROWN, COULD YOU ARTICULATE WHAT SOME OF THE ARGUMENTS WOULD BE, MAYBE THAT HAVE BEEN MADE BY OTHER MUNICIPALITIES TO ALLOW SOME FORM ADVOCATING BUT JUST SO I UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OR ARGUMENTS MADE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ISSUE.

>> AT LEAST SOME O THE JURISDICTIONS WE TALKED TO, SOME OF TEM LOOK AT IT AS AN INCOME-PRODUCING OPPORTUNITY.

OTHERS, I KNOW, IN TALKING WITH THE CITY OF DUBLIN, AND I DN'T BELIEVE IT'S EVER MADE IT OFF THEIR COUNCIL DOCKET, IS DUBLIN WAS LOOKING AT REGULATING AIRBNB'S BUT LIMITING IT TO ONLY, I THINK, TEN DAYS A YEAR IN REGISTERING AND THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT I THINK THEIRS WAS MORE RELATED TO MUIR FIELD AND THE EVENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THAT.

I THINK THERE'S DIFFERENT MECHANISMS IN PLAY.

THIS WAS BACK IN MARCH AND FEBRUARY WHEN I WAS TALKING TO ALL OF THEM. BUT IT WAS KIND OF A COMPLETE GAMUT. UPPER ARLINGTON IS ONE, THEY TALKED ABOUT THE 30 DAYS OR LESS AND THEY DO NOT PERMIT THEM IN UPPER ARLINGTON. IT COMPLETELY VARIED FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. AND I KNOW THAT COLUMBUS HAS GONE THROUGH, YOU KNOW, A COMPLETE REVAMP OF REGULATING THEIR AIRBNBS AND RULES AND REGULATIONS AND REGISTERING THEM. ALMOST EVERY JURISDICTION, WITHIN CENTRAL OHIO REALLY HAS DONE COMPLETELY DIFFERENTLY.

>> THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR.

MYERS, ARE YOU BACK? >> I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS, IF

[00:35:02]

HE'S NOT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY,

GO AHEAD, MR. BOOKER. >> THANK YOU.

>> THANKS, LEE. YOU BROKE UP A LITTLE BIT.

CLARIFICATION, YOU SAID WITH THESE CHANGES WE WOULDN'T BE PROHIBITING A MORE TRADITIONAL STOCKPILE OF RENTALS OR ANNUAL LEASES. IS THAT CORRECT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. IF YOU WANTED TO RENT A ROOM OUT IN YOUR HOUSE, WE AREN'T GOING TO PROHIBIT THAT.

IT'S JUST THE 30 DAYS OR LESS, IT WAS MORE THAT HIGH TURNOVER, HIGH VOLUME WE HEARD FROM A LOT OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

THE PARK NEIGHBORHOOD BOULEVARD THAT OCCURRED.

A LOT OF THE TURNOVER AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE GOING IN AND OUT OF THE HOUSE. A LOT OF THE NEIGHBORS KIND OF STARTED THE CAMPAIGN OF NEIGHBORHOODS ARE FOR NEIGHBORS.

IT CREATED A GOOD DISCUSSION ON IS THERE A WAY IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS OR AREAS IN TOWN THAT MAY BE APPROPRIATE BUT I THINK LEAST WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORHOODS THEY DIDN'T FEEL IT WAS APPROPRIATE.

FOR THAT JURISDICTION. >> YEAH, I'M FAMILIAR WITH THE SIGNS. THAT'S NOT FAR FROM HERE, SO.

AND THE QUESTION I HAD BRIEFLY, DO WE HAVE A GOOD ESTIMATE ON HOW MANY OF THESE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT ARE RELATIVELY FREQUENTLY POSTED ON AIRBNB AND OTHER SITES?

>> IN THE SIX YEARS HERE WE HAVE HAD MAYBE TWELVE.

PARK BOULEVARD, ONCE THEY REALIZE IT WAS NOT PERMITTED WITHIN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. RANDOMLY, WE WILL JUMP ON.

WE AREN'T ALWAYS OUT PERUSING AND CRUISING THE SITES TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON. BUT AT LEAST WITH THAT WE FELT WE WERE TRYING TO ENFORCE THE REGULATION WITH THE PROPERTY ON PARK BOULEVARD. WE SHOULD LOOK TO AT LEAST WHAT WAS GOING ON THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

SOMETIMES IT'S COMPLAINT-DRIVEN WE WILL GET A CALL.

HEY, DID YOU KNOW WE FOUND THIS ON THIS WEBSITE AND CHECK AND HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH A PROPERTY OWNER.

NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN WHEN WE HAVE THE CONVERSATION WITH THE PROPERTY OWNER, GIVE THEM THE TIME TO CORRECT THE ISSUE, THEY

COME INTO COMPLIANCE. >> THANK YOU.

THE LAST COMMENT, I WOULD BE SUPPORTIVE TO FIT THIS IN A PRACTICAL WAY INTO OUR CODE. ANYWAY WE COULD MOVE FORWARD ON OTHER MNICIPALITIES HOW THEY HANDLE IT, AND IF THERE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS HERE, I WOULD BE SUPPORTIVE OF THAT

DISCUSSION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

MR. MYERS? >> CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NOW WE CAN HEAR YOU.

>> OKAY. WELL THAT BEING SAID, I HAVE NOW MOVED TO THE DINING ROOM. HOPEFULLY I HAVE BETTER CELL SERVICE. MR. BROWN ANSWERED MY QUESTION.

SO I THINK I'M DONE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION, THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW.

WE ARE LIVING IN INTERESTING TIMES AND SEEMS LIKE THINGS ARE CHANGING ON A DAILY BASIS. SO RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A B & B ORDINANCE, WE HAVE A HOTEL ORDINANCE WHERE WE COLLECT THE TAX FOR THE CITY THAT WOULD GO INTO A FUND FOR A CONVENTION, VISITORS BUREAU AND OTHER SUCH THINGS IF WE HAVE ENOUGH FUND.

WE MAKE SURE THERE'S EXTRA REGULATIONS.

BUT WE ALSO WANT TO ENCOURAGE BUSINESSES AND PEOPLE TO VISIT WORTHINGTON BUT THIS IS NEW AND SOMETIMES WE HAVE SOME BAD ACTORS. THIS IS A WAY TO KEEP EVOLVING WITH THE TIMES TO MAKE OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AS LIVABLE AS POSSIBLE. OR HOW DO WE GET TO HERE.

>> HOW DID WE GET TO HERE? I THINK, I MEAN, AS I SAID, YOU HAVE A CODE FROM 1971. AND I THINK THERE'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE A NEED TO TWEAK, MODIFY AND UPDATE.

I THINK, BACK I 1971, I'M SURE THERE WAS PROBABLY A TERM FOR THE SHORT-TERM RENTAL IT JUST WASN'T AS PREDOMINANT AS AN AIRBNB OR HOME AWAY OR VRBO, BUT BUILDING OFF MR. BOKER'S COMMENT, THERE MAY BE SITUATIONS IN WORTHINGTON, CERTAIN ZONING DISTRICTS, AS A CONDITION, OR DIFFERENT SITUATIONS WHERE THEY MIGHT BE EASIER T HANDLE AND EASIER TO MONITOR AND NOT BE AS IMPACTFUL AS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD. I THINK THERE'S DEFINITELY OPPORTUNITIES TO LOOK. AT LEAST RIGHT NOW, IT CLEANS UP AND TIGHTENS UP THAT REGULATION SO THAT -- PARK

[00:40:06]

BOULEVARD WHEN WE WERE UPSET, I DID FEEL A LITTLE BIT FOR THE PROPERTY OWNER THAT PURCHASED THIS PROPERTY THINKING THEY COULD DO SOMETHING. I WISH THEY WOULD HAVE TALKED TO US FIRST IN THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT.

WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WARD OFF ANY OF THOSE ISSUES BEFOREHAND. I THINK IT'S AT LEAST CLEANING UP THE CODE SO YOU DON'T HAVE ANOTHER SITUATION LIKE THAT WHERE IT'S PUTTING NEIGHBOR AGAINST NEIGHBOR AND PROPERTY OWNER AGAINST PROPERTY OWNER. AND IT ALSO PUTS YOU AS COUNCILMEMBERS AND BOARD AND COMMISSION MEMBERS IN THE LIME LIGHT AND NOT ALWAYS IN A WY THAT IS USUALLY PRODUCTIVE.

>> WELL, IAPPRECIATE YOU LOOKING INTO THIS AND CLEANING UP THE LANGUAGE. I THINK WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO KEEP ON REVISITING OUR ZONING CODE BUT I THINK AT THE MOMENT THIS IS A VERY GOOD STOP-GAP MEASURE.

I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES, PEOPLE WHO ABSOLUTELY LOVE VACATION RENTAL HOMES ALL OVER THE PLACE.

IF NOT WHERE THEY ACTUALLY LIVE OR WHERE THEY ARE VISITING BUT WE WANT TO HAVE PEOPLE VISITING WORTHINGTON ALSO AND HAVING A GREAT EXPERIENCE. BUT, SO I THINK, AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME, I THINK THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO GO.

BUT I WOULD BE INCLINED TO KEEP ON REVISITING IT IN THE FUTURE.

>> I WOULD AGREE. >> ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR

QUESTIONS? >> MS. MICHAEL, THIS IS KAY.

YOU RECEIVED ONE EMAIL TODAY FROM DOUG AND MARTHA WILES ON GRANBY STREET.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHING ELSE? HEARING NONE. MS. THRESS, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL

Municipal Public Improvements TIF Fund Unappropriated Balance to Pay the Design Costs of the Corporate Hill Extension Improvements and Determining to Proceed with said Project. (Project No. 709-20) Executive Summary: This Ordinance appropriates $95,000 to complete design of the Corporate Hill Extension Improvements, Project Number 709-20 Recommendation: Approve as Presented Legislative History: Introduced on May 4, 2020]

(AS AMENDED) TO ADJUST THE ANNUAL BUDGET BY PROVIDING FOR AN APPROPRIATION FROM THE WEST WILSON BRIDGE RD. MUNICIPAL PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS TIF FUND UNAPPROPRIATED BALANCE TO PAY THE DESIGN COSTS OF THE CORPORATE HILL EXTENSION IMPROVEMENTS AND DETERMINING TO PROCEED WITH SAID PROJECT.

PROJECT NO. 709-20. MR. GREESON.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WE'VE TALKED A LOT ABOUT CORPORATE HILL AND THAT OLD WEST WILSON BRIDGE, WILSON BRIDGE AREA FOR MANY YEARS.

GIVEN THE IMPORTANCE AND TRAFFIC CONCERNS EXPRESSED BY BUSINESSES IN THE AREA, ONE OF THE SOLUTIONS IDENTIFIED THAT WE'VE DISCUSSED WITHOUT WITH YOU IS EXPLORING THE EXTENSION OF CORPORATE HILL DRIVE SO IT BETTER CONNECTS TO OLD WEST WILSON BRIDGE DRIVE AND PREVENTS THE NEED FOR BUSINESSES TO TRAVERSE THROUGH PRIVATE PROPERTY TO MAKE THEIR WAYS TO THE LIGHT OR CONGEST THE MOVEMENT OF OLD WEST WILSON BRIDGE AND WILSON BRIDGE ROAD WHICH IS SOMETIMES PROBLEMATIC DURING PEAK HOURS. THIS ORDINANCE WOULD APPROPRIATE FUNDS FROM WHAT I'M GOING TO USE THE TERM, THE HEIGHTS T.I.F., THE TAX INCREMENT FINANCING DISTRICT WE PUT IN PLACE ON THE APARTMENTS AND OFFICE THERE. THE HEIGHTS.

TO HELP MOVE THAT PROJECT FORWARD INCLUDING THE VARIETY OF ANALYSIS THAT NEEDS TO OCCUR UP TO AND INCLUDING DESIGN.

ONE THING I'LL NOTE, THIS PROJECT IS FUNDED OUT OF T.I.F., WHICH IS NOT A GENERAL FUNDS OR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUNDS FROM THAT ARE OUT OF THE 20% TRANSFERRED TO THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUND OF INCOME TAXES.

AND SO THESE DOLLARS IN A T.I.F. HAVE TO BE SPENT IN PROXIMITY TO THE ACTUAL DEVELOPMENT IN WHICH THE T.I.F. DISTRICT WAS SET UP.

AND SO THIS IS THE PERFECT TYPE OF PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT PROJECT TO PURSUE USING T.I.F. IT'S RIGHT ADJACENT TO THE AREA.

IT SERVES THE PROPERTY THAT WE PUT THE T.I.F. ON A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. AND MOVING FORWARD WITH IT DOESN'T ERODE OUR -- ANY OF OUR OTHER PROJECTS BECAUSE MANY OF OUR OTHER PROJECTS WHETHER IT BE THE HUNTLEY BOWL, SEWER OR WATERLINES OR SIDEWALKS OR OTHER PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY WOULD NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR SPENDING THESE PARTICULAR T.I.F. DOLLARS ON.

GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ON THIS.

AND CERTAINLY RECOMMEND ITS APPROVAL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> R. DOROTHY: I HAVE A >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. DOR

OTHY. >> R. DOROTHY: THIS OBVIOUSLY IS HELPING RELIEVE SOME VEHICLE TRAFFIC, WHICH WE DEFINITELY WANT TO MAKE SURE HAT OUR -- ONE OF OUR MOST EMPLOYERS HAVE PEOPLE HAPPY COMING AND GOING FROM THEIR PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT AND WE WANT TO KEEP THEM IN WORTHINGTON.

BUT WHAT OTHER FEATURES ARE THERE FOR OTHER MODES OF

TRAFFIC? >> M. GREESON: YEAH, SO THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION. YOU ADOPTED, AS YOU KNOW, A COMPLETE STREETS POLICY. AND WE INCLUDED IN THE RFP FOR THE DESIGN CONSULTANTS THAT CERTAINLY ANY DESIGN WOULD NEED TO EVALUATE HOW WE CAN ACCOMPLISH COMPLETE STREETS.

AND SO THAT WOULD TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION MAKING URE THAT WHATEVER IS DESIGNED HERE ACCOMMODATES ALL MODES OF TRANSPORTATION. IT'S A TIGHT AREA.

THE TENSION HERE IS GOING TO BE BETWEEN ACCOMMODATING THE EXTENSION WITHOUT TAKING, WITHOUT IMPACTING TOO MANY PARKING SPACES THAT EXIST ON, IN THAT AREA TO SUPPORT BUSINESSES.

[00:55:04]

AND SO, WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO SQUEEZE AS MUCH IN S WE CAN IN A SMALL AREA. BUT CERTAINLY, WE WOULD WANT TO ACCOMMODATE THINGS LIKE A SIDEWALK AND A WAY FOR PEDESTRIANS TO TRAVERSE THAT AREA.

WE THINK THAT HELPS THAT AREA LONG TERM.

WE THINK THAT'S GOOD FOR THE BUSINESSES IN THAT AREA, THE EMPLOYEES IN THAT AREA, AND CERTAINLY OR RESI RESIDENTS THAT MAY BE TRYING TO GET TO OTHER AMENITIES IN THAT AREA.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. ANY OTHER AND OCEAN QUESTIONS -- QUESTIONS? HEARING NONE, MS. THRESS, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL ON ORDINANCE NUMBER 7-2020?

MOVE ONTO ORDINANCE 18-2020. STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

[7.D. Ordinance No. 18-2020 Appropriation - Street Improvement Program Amending Ordinance No. 45-2019 (As Amended) to Adjust the Annual Budget by Providing for an Appropriation from the Capital Improvements Fund Unappropriated Balance to Pay the Costs of the 2020 Street Improvement Program and all Related Expenses and Determining to Proceed with said Project. (Project No. 707-20) Executive Summary: This Ordinance appropriates $929,355.13 for the 2020 Street Improvement Program Recommendation: Motion to Amend and Approve as Amended Legislative History: Introduced on May 4, 2020]

PROJECT NO. 707-20. THIS, WE'RE GOING TO NEED, I'LL HAVE YOU MAKE THE PRESENTATION AND THEN WE'LL MOVE ON TO THE

MOTION TO AMEND THIS. >> M. GREESON: YEAH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, SO YOU HAVE SEEN THE STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. AND AUTHORIZED ITS REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR IT. IT'S BEEN BID OUT AND BIDS ARE BACK IN. I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. I HANDLED THE LAST ONE HOPING HIS TECHNOLOGY ISSUES WERE FIXED. BUT WANT TO SEE IF HE'S AVAILABLE TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE BIDS FOR THE STREET

PROGRAM. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON.

AND YOU HANDLED THE OTHER ONE JUST FINE.

THE STORMS ARE OUTSIDE MY WINDOW RIGHT NOW.

THAT'S WHAT IS CAUSING MY TECHNOLOGY ISSUES.

I APOLOGIZE. SO PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THE STREET PROGRAM WAS BID OUT.

I WON'T GO OVER THE DETAILS OF THE ACTUAL ROAD IMPROVEMENTS UNLESS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM SINCE I DID THAT A FEW WEEKS AGO. THE BIDS WERE VERY SUCCESSFUL.

WE HAD THREE BIDDERS THAT CAME IN WELL WITHIN THE ESTIMATE.

TWO WITHIN $420 OF EACH OTHER. WE'RE VERY HAPPY THAT STRAWSER PAVING THEM FOR THIS PROJECT. I WILL RECOGNIZE OR ACKNOWLEDGE THAT CONSIST WITH THE LAST DISCUSSION, WHEN WE GO THROUGH THE STREET PROGRAMS, I HOPE YOU CAN HEAR ME.

I HAVE A RED MARK ON MY SCREEN. WHEN WE GO THROUGH THESE PROGRAMS NOW, CONSIST WITH THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY, WE DO EVALUATE THE ABILITY TO DO SOME OF THAT WORK.

I HAVE PREPARED OR MY STAFF HAS PREPARED A PAPER TO THAT REGARD.

AND BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THAT.

I GUESS THE BIGGEST TAKE AWAY RELATED TO THAT IS THE STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM IS LARGELY A STREET MAINTENANCE PROGRAM.

AND MOST OF THOSE PROJECTS DON'T LEND THEMSELVES WELL TO COMPLETE STREETSES OR PROJECTS CONSIST WITH WHAT IS IN OUR POLICY.

BUT IT WILL CONTINUE TO EVALUATE ON EACH INDIVIDUAL YEAR AND SEE WHAT WE CAN DO. AND ALSO AS WE DO ARTERIAL PROJECTS, I HOPE TO --

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: KNOCKED OUT GAIN.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH. I THINK WHAT DAN WAS SAYING IS WE DO ARTERIAL PROJECTS, WE'LL MAYBE EVALUATE PLANS IN ADVANCE.

HOW WE COULD ACCOMMODATE MAYBE MORE SIGNIFICANT BIKE AND PED IMPROVEMENTS WHEN WE DO THOSE. BOTH THE DOLLARS IN THE STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, WHICH HAVE BEEN FLAT SINCE FOR PROBABLY A DECADE AND THE NATURE OF IT, WHICH IS LARGELY MAINTENANCE, THINGS LIKE CRACKED CEILING AND RESURFACING AND THINGS LIKE THAT MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO INCLUDE LARGE-SCALE COMPLETE STREETS INITIATIVES. AND SO IT DOESN'T, THERE IS NOT A LOT IN THERE THAT WOULD BE NEW.

I WOULD SAY THERE IS A PORTION OF IT THAT IS ENSURING THAT WE MAINTAIN OUR EXISTING SIDEWALKS WHERE WE'VE INSPECTED SIDEWALKS

[01:00:05]

WHERE STREETS ARE BEING IMPROVED AND PARTICULARLY DISPLACEMENTS OR NOT-WELL-MAINTAINED SIDEWALK SAID WILL BE REPAIRED ON THOSE STREETS. AND ASSESSED.

-- SIDEWALKS -- IT INCLUDES SOME ELEMENT OF ENSURING ADEQUATE MAINTENANCE OF PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENTS BUT NOT NECESSARILY LARGE-SCALE COMPLETE STREETS RETROFITS.

>> R. DOROTHY: I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THAT, ABOUT HOW COMPLETE STREETS DON'T HAVE TO BE LARGE SCALE.

THEY ARE SHARED SPACE. SHARED SPACE OF OUR PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE EXCLUSIVELY FOR CARS AS WE'VE BEEN SEEING NOW IN THESE NEW TIMES. A LOT OF TEAM ARE -- PEOPLE ARE SHARING PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAYS WALKING AND BIKING IN STREETS THAT NEED TO BE SHARED SPACES FOR CARS AND PEOPLE.

COMPLETE STREETS CAN BE JUST THAT.

SHARED SPACES. THTHEY DON'T HAVE TO BE MONSTROSITIES. I THINK THAT ACTUALLY, A LOT OF WHAT SOME PEOPLE THINK AND WHAT IT SEEMS LIKE YOU, MR. GREESON, THINK THAT COMPLETE STREETS HAVE TO BE THIS GIGANTIC SPACE FOR SWATHS OF ARS TO GO AS FAST AS THEY WANT, WHICH I THINK IS THE AN THISTIOUS OF WHAT WE NEED. WE NEED PEOPLE TO SLOW DOWN AND BE HAPPY THEY ARE HERE. AND BE ABLE TO MOVE AROUND IN VARIOUS FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION IN A AFE MANNER.

COMPLETE STREETS ARE SHARED SPACES PEOPLE CAN GET AROUND SAFELY. THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE BIG CRAZY PATCHES OF LAND. WE HAVE TUCKER THAT IS A GREAT COMPLETE STREET EXACTLY HOW -- NO SIDEWALKS, OTHING.

CARS GO DOWN SLOWLY. PEOPLE WALK AND BIKE.

IT'S A GREAT COMPLETE STREET. AND I WOULD LIKE WE WOULD TRY TO GET MORE STREETS TO BE THAT WAY WITHOUT HAVING GRABBING GREAT SWATHS OF LAND FOR ASTRONOMICAL SUMS OF MONEY.

I THINK WE HAD PEOPLE CONTACT US.

WE HAD A RESIDENT CONTACT US ABOUT IF THERE WERE ANY SORT OF IMPROVEMENTS WE COULD DO THIS YEAR FOR BIKE AND PED.

IF THERE WAS SOME LOW-COST, LOW-HANGING WAYS WE CAN DO MORE LEADING PEDESTRIAN INTERVALS THAT HAD JUST COST OF PEOPLE'S TIME TO REPROGRAM UR STREETS LIGHT PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS IF WE GET RID OF THE BEG BUTTON. WE DON'T HAVE PEDESTRIANS A LOT LOUD TO CROSS UNLESS THEY PRESS A BUTTON.

IF WE HAVE AN AUTOMATIC WAY WITHOUT PUSHING THE BUTTON.

THERE ARE LOW-COST METHODS WE COULD MOVE FORWARD WITH.

I'M FRUSTRATED WE'RE NOT PUTTING FORTH ANY MONEY INTO MORE OTHER FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION. WE DIDN'T SPEND THE MONEY FROM 2019. WE'RE NOT SPENDING MONEY FOR 2020. I DON'T THINK IT'S RIGHT.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE PEDESTRIAN FEATURES THROUGHOUT WORTHINGTON. AND HAVE IT BE A HIGH PRIORITY.

>> M. GREESON: WELL, IF I COULD RESPOND.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, YOU ARE TOTALLY RIGHT.

SOME OF THE BIGGEST, AND I PROBABLY FOCUSED TOO MUCH ON WHAT I WOULD CALL LARGER-SCALE COMPLETE STREETS RETROFITS.

BECAUSE YOU ARE TOTALLY RIGHT. PARTICULAR IN A COMMUNITY LIKE WORTHINGTON, SOME OF THE BIGGEST IMPACTS WE MADE ON BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ISSUES HAVE BEEN SMALL THINGS.

RESTRIPING, SHAREOES, LEADING PEDESTRIAN INTERVALS.

THE THINGS YOU MIGHT CONSIDER LOW COST.

WE DID EVALUATE ALL OF THOSE KIND OF THINGS.

AND WE WILL GET OUT THE DOCUMENTS THAT EVALUATED EACH OF THE STREETS BEING INCLUDED IN PART OF THE STREETS IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. SO THAT YOU CAN SEE, SO ALL OF THE COUNCIL CAN SEE HOW WE EVALUATED THE APPLICABILITY OF YOUR COMPLETE STREETS POLICY AND THE BIKE/PED IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM TO THIS PARTICULAR YEAR OF MAINTENANCE PROJECTS.

AND SO WE'LL GET THAT OUT. AND I APOLOGIZE THAT WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN IT OUT IN ADVANCE. OUR STAFF HAS DONE SOME GOOD WORK IN THERE. THERE IS NOT A LOT IN OUR ESTIMATION A LOT OF THOSE LOW-HANGING OPPORTUNITIES IN THIS PARTICULAR SET OF PROJECTS LIKE COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY IS

[01:05:05]

REFERENCED. I THINK EVERY YEAR WE SHOULD LOOK AT THEM. AND SEE IF THERE ARE WAYS THAT WE CAN IMPROVE A PARTICULAR STREET, LARGE OR SMALL.

AND I CERTAINLY SHARE THE FEELING THAT WE NEED TO BE INVESTING IN BIKE AND PED. BUT RECOGNIZE WE'RE PRETTY CHALLENGED THIS YEAR ON ALL KINDS OF FRONTS.

YOU KNOW. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I WOULD LIKE TO PIGGYBACK ON WHAT COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY SAID.

AND I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH HER COMMENTS IN TERMS OF LOOKING AT THESE ITEMS. IN ARTICULARLY, AS YOU MENTIONED, MR. GREESON WE'RE CHALLENGED RIGHT NOW WITH HOW WE FOCUS ON CITY SERVICES. BUT THERE ARE CITIES THAT ARE LOOKING AT THE CURRENT SITUATION.

AND HOW THEY CAN BE CREATIVE AND EXPERIMENT ON MAKING THEIR CITIES MORE WALKABLE. MY BROTHER LIVES IN SEATTLE AND TELLING ME ABOUT RESIDENTIAL STREETS THAT HAVE ESSENTIAL SHUT DOWN BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY WALKING AND BIKING, THAT IS WAY THEY CAN ACCOMMODATE THEM. AND IT'S AN EXPERIMENT TO SEE HOW THAT PROMOTES WALKABILITY AND PERHAPS DOES NOT DISRUPT TRAFFIC IN A WAY THAT IMPEDES PEOPLE'S ABILITY TO GET AROUND.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO THINK ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR NOW WHILE WE'RE IN THE SITUATION. AND ALSO, IF THE BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY BOARD MEET IN THE FUTURE TO THINK ABOUT THESE IDEAS IN ADDITION TO INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRAFFIC SIGNALS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. A LOT OF CREATIVE THINGS I HOPE

WE COULD EXPLORE. >> M. GREESON: YEAH, WE WOULD BE GLAD TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THAT WITH OUR BIKE ND PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY BOARD. WE ALSO ARE TRYING TO MAINTAIN THE STREETS, WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS AGENDA ITEM.

AND BUT WE'LL BE GLAD TO ENGAGE IN THAT CONVERSATION BECAUSE WE'VE ALL BEEN MAIN -- MONITORING CREATIVE THINGS PEOPLE ARE DOING. I SHOULD ADD THINK WE SHARED IN AN EMAIL WITH YOU THAT OUR STAFF HAS BEEN LOOKING AT HOW WE CAN ADD MORE LEADING PEDESTRIAN INTERVALS ACROSS THE CITY WITH ONE OF OUR CONSULTANTS. AS THOSE ARE USUAL LOW-COST WAYS TO ADD TIME FOR PEDESTRIANS WHEN THEY ARE CROSSING AT A CROSSWALK. THE ANALYSIS THERE IS BOTH KIND OF A TRAFFIC CONTROLLER ISSUE. HOW DO YOU PROGRAM IT? AND THE OTHER THING IS WE ADD MORE TIME TO THE CROSSINGS.

IT CERTAINLY, IF WE DO IT TO ALL OF THEM, WHICH IS WHAT WE'RE EXPLORING, WHAT IS THE AFFECT OF THAT ON OTHER TRAFFIC MOVEMENTS? SO WE'LL KEEP LOOKING AT THAT AS TIME ALLOWS.

WITH THE HOPE WE CAN IMPLEMENT MORE OF THOSE.

BECAUSE THEY HAVE MADE AN IMPACT IN THE COUPLE OF CROSSINGS WHERE WE ADDED. QUITE A BIT OF IMPACT.

>> R. DOROTHY: WHEN TALKING ABOUT THE CONSULTANT, NOT JUST LOOKING AT LEVEL SERVICE FOR CARS.

WE S A COMMUNITY HAVE LEVEL OF SERVICE OF PEOPLE PATRONIZING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY, WALKING AROUND INTO THE LOCAL BUSINESSES. IT'S NOT THE BEST LEVEL OF SERVICE TO HAVE CARS JUST BLOW ON THROUGH WORTHINGTON.

WE WANT THE LEVEL OF SERVICE. IN TODAY'S TRAVEL -- TRAFFIC, WHICH IS CHANGING ALL THE WAY THROUGH FEDERAL AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT, THEY ARE CHANGING WHAT THEIR DESIGN STANDARDS ARE.

WE'RE MOVING FORWARD IN THE FUTURE.

STOP LIVING IN THE PAST. LEVEL OF SERVICE AND CURRENT STANDARDS IS GREAT FOR A CITY. IT MEANS THAT PEOPLE WITH IN OUR COMMUNITY, SPENDING MONEY, THEY ARE WALKING AROUND.

YES, IT MIGHT BE MORE TROUBLESOME TO GET A SPOT AND BLOW THROUGH WORTHINGTON. WE WANT PEOPLE TO STAY AND COME.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO INTERACT AND BE HERE.

DEFINITELY WHEN WE'RE LOOKING AT CONSULTANTS, WE DON'T WANT A LEVEL OF SERVICE OF BE FOR CARS IN WORTHINGTON.

THAT'S NOT WHERE WE WANT TO BE. >> M. GREESON: WE'RE LOOKING AT IT FOR THE PURPOSES OF IMPROVING THE WALKABILITY OF WORTHINGTON OR WE OULDN'T BY DOING IT. I RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF

ORDINANCE. >> R. DOROTHY: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU.

IS THERE ANY OTHER COMMENTS ON THIS ORDINANCE?

>> D. SMITH: YEAH. >> D. ROBINSON: I WAS KICKED OUT A COUPLE OF TIMES FOR SEVERAL MINUTES AND I WASN'T ABLE TO FOLLOW EVERYTHING OR ASK MY QUESTIONS.

COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY, I THINK YOU SAID THAT TUCKER IS A GOOD

[01:10:04]

EXAMPLE OF A COMPLETE STREET.

YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN OR AMPLIFY THAT STATEMENT? HOW DOES TUCKER WASN'T IN THE SAME STATE IT WAS YEARS AGO, THE SIDEWALKS OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT. >> R. DOROTHY: IT'S A SHARED PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY THAT PEOPLE CAN FEEL COMFORTABLE WALKING, BIKING OR DRIVING THEIR CAR DOWN.

I'VE GONE THERE ALL TIMES OF DAY IN A CAR, WALKING, BIKING AND ALWAYS FELT COMFORTABLE IN THAT PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY.

>> D. ROBINSON: HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT? I DON'T UNDERSTAND, TUCKER IS A UNIQUE NEIGHBORHOOD.

IT'S A DEAD END, LOW DENSITY HOUSING.

BUT CUTTING IN AND OUT] IS IN THE CITY.

>> R. DOROTHY: MY POINT IS THAT NOT EVERY COMPLETE STREET HAS TO HAVE SHARED USE PATH OR A DEDICATED SIDEWALK ON EITHER SIDE WAS MY POINT. THAT I -- TO SLOW DOWN CARS YOU CAN ALSO AS MR. GREESON WAS MENTIONING, THIS DOCUMENT THAT WE DO HAVE THE ENGINEERING GUIDELINES, THERE IS OTHER THINGS THAT CAN BE PUT NTO STREETS TO SLOW DOWN CARS.

AND THEY CAN ALSO BE PARKED CARS WHEN YOU HAVE TO MANEUVER AROUND CARS AND GO SLOWER THAT CREATES A SLOWING DOWN CARS, SPEED IS WHAT REALLY IS UPSETTING TO PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THEIR CARS FOR BEING COMFORTABLE WHEN USING A PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY.

AND WALKING OR BIKING. SO SLOWING DOWN CARS AT DIFFERENT MEANS AND THAT'S ALSO ACTUALLY IN OUR BIKE AND PED PLAN, DIFFERENT WAYS BESIDES COMPLETE STREET THAT HAS SHARED USE PATH AND SIDEWALKS ON EITHER SIDE.

THERE IS BUMP OUTS AND ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT ENGINEERING METHODS IN THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CITY TRANSPORTATION, THERE IS OTHER GUIDELINES THAT PEOPLE ARE WRITING AND STANDARDS THAT DIFFERENT CITIES ARE ADOPTING. CITY OF COLUMBUS ADOPTED VISION ZERO AND ENACTO ADOPTER. WE HAVE PEOPLE IN CENTRAL OHIO USING DIFFERENT STANDARDS NTCD SPECIFIC FOR CITIES.

AND PEOPLE WHO ARE WALKING AND BIKING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SO WE HAVE STAFF LOOKING AT THESE VARIOUS OPTIONS. I KNOW THIS IS GOING TO BE COMING BACK UP. BACK UP.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT WE WANT TO BRING UP SPECIFICALLY REGARDING THE STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM ORDINANCE THAT'S IN

FRONT OF US? >> D. ROBINSON: ONE ONE MORE -- I HAVE ONE MORE COMMENT.

GREESON? MR. GREESON?

>> M. GREESON: YES, SIR. >> D. ROBINSON: I WOULD VERY MUCH RATHER THAN TALK ABOUT THESE STREET IMPROVEMENT ISSUES TIME WE HAVE A PROJECT TO PRESENT TWO DISTINCTIVE OPTIONS OR MORE TO COUNCIL WITH RELATED BUDGETS SO WE COULD HAVE A DISCUSSION AROUND SPECIFIC POLICIES.

THAT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL. I THINK TO ALL OF US UNDERSTANDING WHAT EACH OF US THINKS AND ALLOW COUNCIL TO MAKE A CHOICE RATHER THAN A YES OR NO ON ONE PRESENTATION.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH. I THINK THAT'S WHAT WE'LL DO.

WE'VE WRITTEN UP OUR STAFF THINKING ON THE COMPLETE STREETS ANALYSIS. AND WE'LL SHARE THAT WITH YOU MORE PROACTIVELY IN THE FUTURE SO THAT BEFORE E BID IT.

I MEAN THE TIME TO HAVE THIS DEBATE IS NOT AFTER WE'VE -- AFTER YOU HAVE ALREADY AUTHORIZED BIDDING IT AND THE BIDS ARE BEFORE YOU. THE TIME IS IT TO HAVE IT WELL BEFORE THAT. WE'LL INSTIGATE THAT WITH THE ADEQUATE LEVEL OF ANALYSIS. AND YOU KNOW, PLEASE BEAR WITH US. DURING ALL OF THIS, WE HAD MORE THAN ONE THING TO FOCUS ON. AND CHALLENGES AND TRYING TO DO ALL THIS. AND SO WE'LL ENSURE THAT HAPPENS

IN THE FUTURE. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF THERE ISN'T ANYTHING ELSE, GOING DOWN THE LINE AS I NORMALLY DO, MS. DOROTHY MOVES WE AMEND THIS ORDINANCE BY PUTTING STRAWSER PAVING IN HE AMOUNT OF $929,355.13 SECONDED BY MR. ROBINSON.

IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION ON THE AMENDMENT? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

[01:15:03]

OPPOSED? AND WE ALL ARE AWARE AS IT COMES FORWARD IN THE FUTURE, STAFF IS GOING TO BRING BACK MORE PTIONS BEFORE WE GET INTO THE BIDDING PROCESS SO WE CAN MAKE THE DECISIONS THAT MR. ROBINSON AND MS. DOROTHY BOTH BROUGHT UP AND EXPLAINING TO US THAT RE VERY, VERY IMPORTANT.

WITH THAT, MS. THRESS, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL ON

CAMPS. >> THANK YOU, MR. BARTTER, MR. GREESON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL NOTHING MAKES ME A PARKS AND RECREATION GUY SADDER THAN TO TALK ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF SUMMER CAMPS.

THAT WAS THE FIRST STEP IN MY PARKS AND REC CAREER WAS RUNNING SUMMER CAMPS SO THEY ARE NEAR AND DEAR TO ME.

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICIALS. MR. GREESON?

[9. Reports of City Officials]

[01:30:04]

>> M. GREESON: YEAH. PRESIDENT MICHAEL, WE NEED A LITTLE TIME ON THIS ONE. WE WANT TO TOUCH BASE A LITTLE BIT N REOPENING ISSUES IN LIGHT OF THE STATE OF OHIO AUTHORIZING REOPENING OF A VARIETY OF PARKS AND RECREATION FACILITIES.

AS YOU KNOW, THEY DID THAT LAST WEEK.

AND ISSUED A NUMBER OF RECOMMENDATIONS AND BEST PRACTICES ON HOW TO DO IT APPROPRIATELY AND WITH BEST PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICES. SO MUCH OF THE GUIDANCE CAME OUT ON FRIDAY. AND SINCE THEN, WE'VE BEEN REVIEWING IT AND COMPARING IT TO SOME OF THE PLANS THAT STAFF HAD ALREADY BEEN DEVELOPING. I SENT A MEMORANDUM OUT DO -- TO YOU LATE TODAY. SORRY IF IT DIDN'T GET INTO YOUR HANDS. WE'VE BEEN WORKING DILIGENTLY ON THIS. BUT WE'RE GOING TO GO OVER IT TONIGHT. AND THAT MEMO REFLECTS STAFF'S CURRENT OR I SHOULD SAY EVOLVING THINKING REGARDING OUR FITNESS FACILITIES, BALL FIELDS, OOL, COURTS, AND WHAT MR. HURLEY WAS TALKING ABOUT, CAMPS. IN SOME AREAS E'VE DEVELOPED A DETAILED PLANS AND PREPARATIONS FOR REOPENING BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN KIND OF IN A STATE OF READINESS, IF YOU WILL, OR WORKING ON THAT.

IN OTHER AREAS WE STILL HAVE WORK TO DO.

AND THERE IS SIGNIFICANT SSUES TO EVALUATE.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT VER TO MR.L WALK THROUGH EACH AREA.

BEFORE I DO, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE THREE OF THE THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT AS WE EVALUATE SOME OF THE ISSUES.

REALLY, THIS EVALUATION IS MULTI-FACETTED.

FIRST, OF COURSE E'RE LOOKING AT THESE THINGS THROUGH THE LENS OF PUBLIC HEALTH. CAN WE MEET HE RECOMMENDATIONS? CAN WE MEET THE BEST PRACTICES FROM THE STATE? WHAT ADVICE DOES COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH? ARE QUESTIONS WE SK. DO WE FEEL WE CAN MEET OUR EMPLOYEES AND OUR CUSTOMERS EXPECTATIONS FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING? AND THE FREQUENCY AND LEVEL OF CLEANING, ET CETERA. THOSE ARE A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES OF THE THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT. SECOND, AFTER APPLYING THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND EST PRACTICES, IS THE EXPERIENCE THAT WE'RE CREATING SOMETHING THAT OUR CUSTOMERS WANT? ARE WE FULFILLING A NEED OR SOMETHING THAT IS DESIRABLE FOR OUR CITIZENS. TRYING TO ASCERTAIN IF THERE IS A COMMUNITY NEED TO FILL OR DEMAND DURING THIS UNIQUE TIME PERIOD IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND REGION'S HISTORY.

THIRD, ONE OF THE THINGS AS YOU HAVE BEEN HEARD AT RECENT MEETINGS, WE'RE HAVING TO ADD TO THIS EVALUATION IS DO SOME OF THESE THINGS AS, AND YOU WILL HEAR THIS WHEN MR. HURLEY TALKS ABOUT THIS, ARE THEY COST EFFECTIVE AND MAKE SENSE? WHEN EVALUATING AND ENHANCED LEVEL OF STAFFING FOR THINGS LIKE CLEANING OR KIDS TO SUMMER CAMP, COUNSELORS, DOES THE -- DOES IT FINANCIALLY MAKE SENSE WHEN YOU HAVE ENHANCED STAFFING AND REDUCED CUSTOMERS IS IT WORTH IT TO THE CUSTOMER IN THEIR EXPERIENCE AND US FINANCIALLY? ASSUMING WE FEEL COMFORTABLE WE CAN MEET THE PUBLIC HEALTH STANDARDS, WE'RE WRESTLING HOW WE BALANCE COMMUNITY NEEDS WITH THE COST OF PROVIDING SERVICE. SO THOSE ARE THE KIND OF THREE FACTORS AMONGST OTHERS THAT WE'RE EVALUATING.

YOU WILL HEAR THAT AS WE TALK ABOUT IT THIS EVENING.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MRE DETAIL TO REOPENING UPDATE.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WE LIKE YOU, HEARD A FLURRY OF PARKS AND RECREATION ACTIVITY AS THE GOVERNOR'S PRESS CONFERENCE ON THURSDAY.

AND WHILE THAT WAS PRETTY RECENT, A LOT OF THE GUIDELINES RELATED TO THOSE ANNOUNCEMENTS DID NOT COME UT UNTIL LATE IN THE DAY FRIDAY. WANT TO COMPLIMENT MY STAFF AND THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND AND TODAY TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF FRAMING.

ALBE IT WE DON'T HAVE IT POLISHED YET.

WE WANTED TO SHARE OUR CURRENT THINKING AND GET YOUR INPUT ABOUT WHAT YOU FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT AND WHAT WE MAY OR MAY NOT

[01:35:03]

BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK IN TERMS OF YOUR THINKING.

I'M GOING TO TRY AND KEEP MOVING BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN HERE FOR A WHILE BUT I WANT TO GIVE YOU DETAIL.

AND CERTAINLY, INCE THE MEMO CAME OUT LATE, YOU MAY HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO REVIEW IT AND THE PUBLIC DIDN'T SEE IT.

MAYBE A LITTLE BIT PAINSTAKINGLY GO THROUGH THE DETAILS SO BEAR WITH ME. THE COMMUNITY CENTER IS WHERE WE FEEL LIKE WE HAVE THE MOST DETAILS AND PLANNING BECAUSE IT WAS FAIRLY APPARENT TO US THAT JIMS AND -- GYMS AND FITNESS WERE COMING ONLINE SOON AND PRETTY GOOD INFORMATION ABOUT THE BEST PRACTICES FOR DOING THAT.

I ILL EMPHASIS IT WAS ANNOUNCED GYMS, DANCE INSTRUCTION STUDIOS AND OTHER PERSONAL FITNESS COULD WE OPEN MAY 26.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE WEBSITE, IT DOESN'T SPECIFICALLY SAY RECREATION CENTERS. AS THOSE HAVE BEEN LISTED SEPARATELY IN THE ORDERS FROM THE GOVERNOR OVER THIS PERIOD OF TIME. BUT IT WAS MENTIONED BY THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR WHEN HE MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT.

WE'RE TRYING TO GET A VERIFICATION THAT WE CAN OPEN THE FITNESS COMPONENT. WE BELIEVE WE'LL BE ABLE TO.

STAFF IT BE LOOKING FORWARD TO A JUNE 1ST PHASED OPENING, WE THINK IT'S THE EASIEST TO IMPLEMENT.

WE COULD SPACE OUT FITNESS EQUIPMENT AND MOVE SOME EQUIPMENT INTO OTHER SPACE LIKE INTO OUR GYM.

AND WE WOULD OBVIOUSLY IF INCREASE CLEANING.

LIMIT THE NUMBER OF ATRONSES IN THE FACILITY AT ONE TIME TO ABOUT 40. AND UTILIZE A PREREGISTRATION SYSTEM SO WE, OUTSIDE WE WO WOULD -- OTHERWISE WE WOULD HAVE TO BE AT THE DOOR. IT WOULD BE A REREGISTRATION SYSTEM THROUGH OUR EXISTING REGISTRATION SYSTEM WHERE PEOPLE WOULD SIGN UP FOR DESIGNATED TIME SLOTS THAT WOULD LIKELY BE ABOUT AN HOUR AND 17 MINUTES. — 15 MINUTES.

AND WE WOULD BRING IN THE NEXT GROUP AFTER CLEANING.

WE WOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT THROUGHOUT THE DAY PENING EARLIER. WE WOULD LIKELY TAKE A MID-DAY BREAK IN THE SLOWER TIME ONCE THE LUNCH CROWD LEAVE AND BEFORE THE AFTERNOON GROUP COMES AND DO A DEEPER CLEANING.

WE WOULD HAVE AN HOUR OR SO BREAK OR MORE.

AND START IN WITH THE SAME THING THROUGHOUT HE EVENING HOURS.

WE WOULD ALSO HAVE A DESIGNATED TIME SLOT FOR HIGH-RISK POPULATIONS, WHICH IS A BEST PRACTICE.

THAT WOULD PROBABLY E THE FIRST LATE AFTERNOON TIME SLOT AFTER WE DEEPLY CLEANED. CURRENT MEMBERS WOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO EITHER REINSTATE THE CURRENT MEMBERSHIP.

IF YOU HAVE READ OUR INFORMATION ONLINE, WE HAVE SUSPENDED ALL OF THE CURRENT MEMBERSHIPS. THEY WOULDN'T GET THE FULL ALUE OF THEIR MEMBERSHIPS SO WE WOULD MAKE IT THEIR OPTION IF THEY WANTED TO CONTINUE THE SUSPENSION THEY COULD BY DAILY RATES WHICH WE'LL BE CHARGING RESIDENTS.

IF THEY DIDN'T, I PAID FOR A MEMBERSHIP, I DON'T WANT TO PAY MORE. THEY COULD REINSTATE THE MEMBERSHIP AND NOT PAY A FEE TO COME.

IT WOULD BE THEIR CHOICE. LIKE I SAID, OURS WOULD START AROUND 6 IN THE MORNING AND GO UNTIL 88 -- 8 INITIALLY AND WE COULD REASSESS AND ADD MORE HOURS AS NECESSARY.

IN ORDER TO ROVIDE THE SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF HOURS, WE THINK WOULD BE IN DEMAND WE WOULD RECALL SOME PART-TIME STAFF. BECAUSE EVEN WITH OUR 12 RECREATION STAFF, IF YOU START TO DO THE MATH, WE COULDN'T COVER A LOT OF HOURS. WE THINK WE'LL NEED SIX STAFF AT A TIME FOR THIS LEVEL OF OPENING.

I'M GOING TO PAUSE FOR A SECOND. THAT'S THE COMMUNITY CENTER INITIAL PHASE. I'LL TALK MORE ABOUT THE POOL IN A SECOND. SO IF YOU DON'T MIND, HOLD YOUR QUESTION ON THE POOL AND WHY IT ISN'T MENTIONED NOW AND I'LL GO

INTO MORE DETAIL NEXT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE HAVE QUESTIONS? I KNOW THIS IS A CHALLENGING TIME. WE THANK YOU AND YOUR STAFF FOR THE HOURS AND TIME THEY PUT IN TO PUTTING TOGETHER A GAME PLAN ON HOW TO OPEN UP AGAIN INTERCONSTRAINTS.

>> IT'S TO THEIR CREDIT THEY HAD A PLAN READY ON FRIDAY SIMILAR TO THIS. COMPARING IT TO THE STANDARDS AND MAKING TWEAKS. SO I WAS REALLY HAPPY WITH THEIR

WORK. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS? WELL, VERY COMPLETE REPORT

THERE, I GUESS. >> SLOW ON THE BUTTON I

APOLOGIZE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NO

PROBLEM, MR. BUCHER. >> P. BUCHER: IF WE SAID -- WE

[01:40:01]

SEE A VERSION OF A SECOND WAVE WHAT COURSE OF ACTION DO WE HAVE TO SCALE BACK TO WHERE WE CURRENTLY ARE ON THESE RESTRICTIONS? DOES THAT FALL ON COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH? YOURSELF, MATT? IF YOU CAN BRIEFLY TOUCH ON THAT SCENARIO.

>> MR. GREESON, IF YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT.

>> YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT IT.

GO HEAD. >> I MEAN, I THINK ANYTIME YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE -- WE WOULD PHASE THIS IN JUST LIKE YOU SEE WITH SOME OF THE THINGS GOING ON STATE WIDE.

SO OUR INTENT WOULD BE TO DO SOMETHING WE FEEL PRETTY GOOD ABOUT. AND FITNESS SEEMS TO BE THE EASIEST. IT'S ADULTS, WE CAN SPACE EQUIPMENT AND LIMIT THE NUMBER. WE'RE THINKING 40 AT A TIME.

AND KIND OF SEE HOW THEY SPACE THEMSELVES OUT.

IF STAFF HAVE A LOT OF TROUBLE MAINTENANCES DISTANCING OR FEELING LIKE WE'RE GETTING TO ALL THE SERVICES AND CLEANING THEM EFFECTIVELY. IF WE ARE, AND WE'RE NOT SEEING BAD NUMBERS IN OUR AREA AND PEOPLE ARE WORKING WELL WITH US, WE CAN PROBABLY START TO INCREASE BOTH THE HOURS WE'RE AVAILABLE AND MAYBE EVEN THE NUMBERS COMING IN THE BUILDING.

BUT CERTAINLY, TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, IF IT WERE GOING THE OTHER WAY WE COULD FURTHER RESTRICT AND KEEP OFFERING SOME LEVEL OF SERVICE OR GO BACK TO A CLOSED STATUS.

ONE OF THE REASONS WE WANT TO KIND OF HAVE SOME FLEXIBILITY HOW WE TREAT MEMBERSHIPS IS NUMBER ONE, IF YOU ARE A MEMBER IN THIS SCENARIO YOU ARE NOT GETTING WHAT YOU PAID FOR WHEN YOU GOT YOUR MEMBERSHIP. AND NUMBER TWO, BY HAVING EOPLE PAY AS THEY COME, OBVIOUSLY IT GIVES OU FLEXIBILITY.

YOU ARE OMMITTED TO THE DAY THEY ARE COMING AND NOT ANY KIND

OF LONG TERM. >> P. BUCHER: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I HAVE A QUESTION.

>> M. GREESON: I WOULD ADD WITH THESE, I THINK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT SAME LEVEL OF FLEXIBILITY AND MONITOR OUR SUCCESS AND THEM. OUR ABILITY TO MANAGE IT.

OUR ABILITY TO KEEP UP WITH THE STANDARDS.

WHETHER WE CAN INCREASE SERVICE OR WHETHER THE HEALTH CONDITIONS WARRANT US WITH THE ADVICE OF PUBLIC HEALTH REDUCING THE LEVEL OF SERVICE. AND SO I THINK WITH ALL OF THE THINGS MR. HURLEY DESCRIBED, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO ASK FOR SOME PATIENCE WITH OUR COMMUNITY AS WE MOVE INTO UNCHARTED TERRITORIES AND PROVIDE A MODIFIED SERVICES, IF YOU WILL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I HAVE HAD A LITTLE MORE TIME THAN OTHERS BESIDES BEING ON AN OUR AND A HALF PHONE CALL AND OTHER CONVERSATIONS, MY UNDERSTANDING IS WE WILL OPEN THE BATHROOM SAID AND NOT THE SHOWERS. I THINK WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE LET PEOPLE KNOW YOU CAN COME IN FOR YOUR HOUR AND 15 MINUTES OF WORKOUT. UNDERSTAND THE SHOWERS ARE CLOSED. YOU NEED TO GO HOME TO TAKE YOUR

SHOWER AFTER YOUR WORKOUT. >> YEAH.

WE'LL BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT. WE'RE PLANNING TO HAVE FAMILY CHANGING ROOMS AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED TO CHANGE TO GET TO WORK OR WHATEVER THE CASE MIGHT BE.

WE DO FEEL E'LL BE ABLE TO MAKE THAT REALLY CLEAR.

AND AGAIN, CLEANING OF THE LOCKER ROOMS AND SPACING IS ONE OF THE REALLY BIG CHALLENGES OF OPENING WITH THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT ARE OUT THERE. SO THAT IS WHY WE'RE PLANNING TO INITIALLY DO IT THAT WAY AND SEE WHAT OUR ABILITY IS TO KEEP OUR

RESTROOMS CLEAN. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I WOULD LIKE TO PERHAPS OFFER COMMENTS. I DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE QUESTIONS. I APPRECIATE THE APPROACH.

AND BEING CAUTIOUS AND FLEXIBLE AND WILLING TO MAKE CHANGES, PARTICULARLY IF THINGS AREN'T WORKING THE WAY WE HOPED IN TERMS OF PROTOCOLS. I MEAN, I THINK WE SHOULD BE CLEAR NOTHING HAS CHANGED WITH REGARD TO THE VIRUS.

THERE IS NO VACCINE OR TREATMENT OR CURE.

AND LITTLE TESTING. AND BASICALLY, THESE OPENINGS, THE POINT OF THEM IS TO SPUR ON THE ECONOMY.

BECAUSE OUR ECONOMIC CONDITIONS RIGHT NOW ARE NOT SO GOOD.

IT'S NOT REALLY THAT THINGS HAVE CHANGED IN TERMS OF THE VIRUS.

THE OTHER THING THAT I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE MADE CLEAR IS THAT THE GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS ARE JUST THAT.

WE DON'T HAVE TO OPEN ANYTHING IF WE DON'T THINK WE'RE READY OR WE DON'T THINK IT'S PROMOTE. I FRANKLY, WANT TO STRESS CAUTION AND PERHAPS MAYBE, IN MY OPINION, WE SHOULDN'T BE OPENING THINGS QUITE SO SOON. AND WE EVEN SAW IN THE PRESS THIS WEEKEND PEOPLE THAT COULDN'T ADHERE TO PROTOCOLS SO I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT OPENING FACILITIES TOO QUICKLY.

AND BEING ABLE TO CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING.

BECAUSE A LOT OF THIS DEPENDS ON THEM FOLLOWING THE RULES.

[01:45:04]

I HAVE CONFIDENCE OUR RESIDENTS WILL DO THAT.

JUST TO KIND OF SUPPORT THE IDEA OF BEING FLEXIBLE AND CAUTIOUS AND EXPRESSING MY OPINION ON HOW QUICKLY WE MIGHT WANT TO OPEN

THINGS UP. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

OTHER COMMENTS? NOT HEARING ANY OTHER COMMENTS, MR. HURLEY, DO YOU WANT TO MOVE ON TO THE SWIMMING POOLS?

>> YEAH, SO THE NEXT BIG CATEGORY WAS SWIMMING POOLS.

AND CERTAINLY, A LOT OF THE DISCUSSION AROUND THOSE HAD TO DO WITHOUT DOOR POOLS, OUTDOOR POOLS, IT DOES RELATE IN TERMS OF OF CITY POOL. THEY WERE TO GO WITH COUNCILMEMBER KOWALCZYK, THEY WERE ALLOWED TO OPEN STARTING MAY 26TH. AND SO WE CERTAINLY IN OUR INITIAL REVIEW OF THOSE GUIDELINES BELIEVE THERE IS A LOT MORE CHALLENGES WITH OPENING THE SWIMMING POOLS FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS. SPACING, OUR POOL DECK DOES NOT LEND ITSELF TO A LOT OF ROOM FOR PEOPLE TO PASS AND SO FORTH.

WE KNOW THERE ARE CHALLENGES THERE.

WE WOULD BE OPENING LOCKER ROOMS IN THAT SCENARIO AND CHALLENGES THERE. SO I THINK WHAT WE WOULD BE LOOKING FOR IS A PHASED-APPROACH, AGAIN, THAT WOULD NOT OCCUR WHEN WE FIRST OPEN AROUND THE BEGINNING OF JUNE. BUT WOULD E A LITTLE LATER AFTER WE HAVE MORE TIME TO EVALUATE A LITTLE MORE TIME TO DEFINITELY UNDERSTAND THE STANDARDS.

AND WE EXPECT OUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS TO WEIGH IN AS WE'RE GOVERNED BY THEM. I KNOW THERE ARE CONCERNS BOTH COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE HEAD THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

WE EXPECT IF WE GET TO THE POINT OF FEELING GOOD ABOUT OPENING THE POOL, IT WOULD BE A PHASED APPROACH.

AND THINGS LIKE LAP SWIMMING AND WATER EXERCISE PROGRAMS AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE WOULD BE EASIER TO MPLEMENT AND SPACE AND FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE CONTROL, OBVIOUSLY OPENING UP TO FAMILY AND KIDS GROUPS AND HAT WOULD REALLY CREATE SOME CHALLENGES.

SO IT COULD BE THAT WE GET TO THE POINT OF A, AGAIN, A PHASED THING WHEN MEMBERS SERVICES OF LAP SWIMMING AND LIMITED WATER TYPE PROGRAMMING COULD BE ACCOMPLISHED BECAUSE THEY COULD BE SPACED EFFECTIVELY. WE WANT MORE TIME TO EVALUATE.

WE ALSO HAVE KIND OF TOOK ADVANTAGE OF WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS GOING TO BE EXTENDED CLOSURE TO FIX A LEAKING PIPE.

AND IT IS NOT GOING TO BE READY AFTER THE BEGINNING OF JUNE REGARDLESS. THERE IS A LEAD TIME ON THAT SHIPMENT. WE OULD BE DELAYED EITHER WAY.

BUT AGAIN, I THINK THE REALTIMING WILL BE DECIDED ON THE COMFORT LEVEL AND OUR ABILITY TO SAFELY REOPEN.

THERE IS A LOT OF TALK IN THE FIELD AND HEALTH DEPARTMENTS ON THIS. WE SHOULD GET CLARITY AND HAVE A

STRONGER RECOMMENDATION IN JUNE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: JUST TO LET THE COUNCILMEMBERS KNOW, I SPENT AN HOUR AND A HALF ON THE PHONE INCLUDED THE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND THE CENTRAL OHIO MAYOR AND MANAGERS ASSOCIATION. THEY COULDN'T COME UP WITH CONCLUSIONS ON THURSDAY. THEY ARE ASKING THE PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENTS TO COME UP WITH WHAT IS THE RIGHT STANDARD, WHAT IS THE BEST PROTOCOLS, WHAT SHOULD PARKS AND REC BY DOING? AND OOKING THAT WE'RE COORDINATING, IF ONE POOL OPENS UP AND NOT EVERYWHERE, PEOPLE WILL JAM THE PLACE.

THEY ARE LOOKING AT A COORDINATED APPROACH AND TALKING. I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW WE'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN LISTENING TO THAT AND BEING PART OF IT.

AND JUST TO LET YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE WORKING WITH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND PARKS AND REC AND CITY AND TRYING TO COME WITH THE

CENTRAL OHIO APPROACH. >> I THANK YOU, PRESIDENT MICHAEL. THAT IS A GREAT POINT.

WE'RE CERTAINLY WHEN CLOSING THINGS IN MARCH AND APRIL, AND CERTAINLY NOW, IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT IF WE CLOSE OR OPEN CERTAINLY AMENITIES, WE DRIVE THEM TO EACH OTHER. SO WE'RE TRYING TO NOT ONLY MAKE THE BEST DECISIONS FOR OUR COMMUNITY BUT BE MINDFUL OF WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS ARE THINKING OF DOING AS WELL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS OR OTHER COMMENTS FROM COUNCIL MEMBERS? HEARING NONE, THIS IS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING TIME. AND AGAIN, WE THANK YOU OUR STAFF FOR THEIR PROFESSIONALISM. AND FOR HEIR HARD WORK.

AND ALL THE TIME THAT YOU ARE PUTTING IN ORKING ON THIS.

[01:50:02]

AND WE ALL PRAY FOR SAFE OPENING AND HOPEFULLY PEOPLE FOLLOW THE SOCIAL DISTANCING. WHERE I CURRENTLY AM, PEOPLE HAVE FOLLOWED SOCIAL DISTANCING IN THE GYM SCENARIOS.

AND THEY HAVE ALSO SOCIAL DISTANCING IN SWIMMING POOLS AND OTHERS. BUT IT'S ONLY BEEN SMALL POOLS, NOT COMMUNITY POOLESS. THE COMMUNITY POOLS ARE ONLY LAP SWIMMING. BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYBODY. AND ESPECIALLY AS YOU ET INTO THE WARM SUMMER WEATHER. EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO TO A SWIMMING POOL. IT MAKES IT HARDER AND CHALLENGING BECAUSE YOU HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE, IN OHIO YOU HAVE THREE OR FOUR MONTHS TO BE OUTSIDE IN THE WATER.

IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A -- IT'S GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYBODY. WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER WITH IT.

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, THE TH THA COUPLE OF OTHER -- CATEGORIES I WANT TO TOUCH ON. SUMMER CAMPS.

WE TALKED ABOUT THAT EARLIER WITH THE REFUNDING.

AND CERTAINLY, THE CANCELLATION OF OUR EXISTING SUMMER CAMPS DUE TO THE CHANGES WE KNEW WERE COMING.

THEY HAVE NOW COME. AND THOSE WHILE AGAIN THEY CAN REOPEN OR BECOME AVAILABLE ON MAY 31ST, THOSE RESTRICTIONS WERE CERTAINLY OR THE GUIDELINES THAT ARE OUT ARE CERTAINLY RESTRICTIVE, INCLUDING GROUP SIZES AND RATIOS.

NO FIELD TRIPS, SEPARATED CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT, EXTENSIVE CLEANING AND DISINFECTING AND CHECKING SYMPTOMS AT DROP OFF AND SO ON. OUR STAFF ARE TRYING TO EVALUATE THAT. LOOKING AT WHAT WE DO.

WE KNOW WE HAVE A LOT OF PARENTS THAT WHILE WE ARE A SUMMER CAMP AND PROVIDE FUN GREAT EXPERIENCES FOR KIDS, WE KNOW WE DOUBLE AS CHILDCARE FOR A LOT OF PARENTS.

AND SO OUR EVALUATION IS KIND OF LOOKING AT WITH THESE GUIDELINES, WHAT DOES AN ALL-DAY PROGRAM LOOK LIKE? WHAT KINDS OF GOOD PROGRAMMING CAN WE PROVIDE TO KIDS IN THAT RESTRICTIVE ENVIRONMENT VERSE IG OR A COUPLE OF HOUR RECREATIONAL PROGRAMMING THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE MORE ENJOYABLE AND FUN FOR THE KIDS BUT WOULDN'T MEET THE NEED FOR THE WORKING PARENTS.

OUR NEXT STEP IS TO SURVEY SOME OF OUR FAMILIES WHO SIGNED UP FOR OUR CAMPS AND JUST KIND OF UNDERSTAND WHERE THEY RE WITH THE GUIDELINES. AND THEIR DESIRE TO COME TO CAMP IN THE NEW FORMAT AND NEEDS FOR CHILDCARE THAT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE CHANGED. AND WE WILL BE BACK WITH SOME MORE SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS. AGAIN, THERE IS COST IMPLICATIONS LIKE MR. GREESON MENTIONED.

WE WOULD HAVE TO LOAD UP ON STAFF.

NOTABLY TO -- ABLE TO SERVE AS MANY KIDS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF CHALLENGES WE'RE SORTING THROUGH.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS ON SUMMER CAMPS?

HEARING NONE, CONTINUE, SIR. >> YEAH, THERE ARE A COUPLE THAT SWING US OUTDOORS TO SPORTS AND CAMPS.

A SIGNIFICANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT SPORTS FIELDS AND LEAGUES.

WE DON'T RUN YOUTH SPORTS TO MUCH DEGREE ANYMORE HERE IN WORTHINGTON, WE DO PROVIDE THE FIELDS FOR THE WORTHINGTON YOUTH BOOSTERS PRIMARILY. SCHOOL AND THINGS, WHICH ARE PASSED AT THIS POINT. AND SO WE ARE, THOSE LEAGUES ARE PERMITTED TO REOPEN MAY 26. WE HAD CLOSED OUR FIELDS THROUGH THE END OF MAY. BUT IT HELD OFF, KIND OF WAITING TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING TO COME OF THIS.

I KNOW THE YOUTH BOOSTERS ARE DOING WHAT WE'RE DOING.

THEY ARE EVALUATING ALL OF THE NEW GUIDELINES.

AND I'M SURE TRYING TO MAKE A DECISION ONTO WHAT EXTENT THEY ARE OING TO OFFER ALL KINDS OF OF BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL AS WE'RE IN THE SEASON. WE'RE EXPECTING TO HEAR FROM THEM SOON. THAT WOULD LEAD TO DECISIONS ON NUMBER ONE, REOPENING FIELDS IN GENERAL. TWO, AS YOU SAW IN SOME OF THE FINANCIAL ANALYSIS WE HAD NO PARK SEASONALS AND NO OVERTIME FOR OUR PARKS CREW. AND REALLY TO ROVIDE OUR NORMAL SERVICE TO WYB AND OUR RESIDENTS THAT USE IT.

WE WOULD HAVE FIELDS AVAILABLE ON THE WEEKENDS, WHICH WOULD DRIVE OFTEN SEASONALS AND OVERTIME.

AND SO WE DO BRING IN REVENUE THAT FFSETS A PORTION OF THAT.

JUST SO YOU KNOW, THOSE ARE DECISIONS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT.

AND STARTING TO MOVE TOWARDS. AND WE'LL HAVE TO MAKE HERE OVER

THE UPCOMING WEEKS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS? ANYTHING ELSE, MR. HURLEY?

>> FINALLY, THINGS WE PROBABLY HAVE A LITTLE MORE, I DON'T KNOW

[01:55:05]

IF LEEWAY IS THE RIGHT WORD, IN OUR COURT AND NOT SO MUCH THE GOVERNOR'S MANDATES. WHEN IT COMES TO PARKS AND PARK AMENITIES, WE'RE GET A LOT OF INQUIRIES, WITH THE NICER WEATHER WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO REOPEN THIS OR THAT.

AS YOU MAY RECALL, PLAYGROUNDS WERE MANDATED TO BE CLOSED BY THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ARE STILL CLOSED THROUGH MA.

THE THER AMENITIES WE CURRENTLY HAVE CLOSED INCLUDE TENNIS COURTS, PICKLEBALL COURTS, SKATEPARK, DOG PARK AND OUTDOOR RESTROOMS AND SELBY SHELTER. AND THE MAJORITY OF THOSE, SOME OF THOSE WERE DID HAVE HEALTH DEPARTMENT PUSH OR SUGGESTIONS THAT WE CLOSED. BUT A LOT OF THEM WE JUST CLOSED BECAUSE THEY WERE BRINGING GATHERINGS OF PEOPLE.

AND GETTING REPORTS OF 30-40 PICKLEBALL PLAYERS.

30 OR 40 CARS AT THE DOG PARK. WE MADE THE ECISION TO CLOSE.

AND MOSTLY, PUT THE WORD OUT THAT WAS DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING CONCERNS. AND SO, YOU KNOW, AS WE SEE SOME OF THESE GOVERNOR ORDERS COME OUT AND SO FORTH, WE'RE CERTAINLY CONTINUING TO MONITOR THOSE.

I THINK THE END OF MAY IS A NATURAL TIME TO KIND OF ASSESS WHERE WE ARE ON SOME OF THOSE. YOU KNOW, FOR EXAMPLE, WE GET A CALL FROM A TENNIS PLAYER. 10ESS -- TENNIS ITSELF LENDS ITSELF TO SOCIAL DISTANCING AS A SPORT.

IF THE COURTS ARE OPEN, YOU WILL SEE LARGE GATHERINGS OF PEOPLE.

IT'S A TOUGH ISSUE, WE'RE TALKING TO OTHER COMMUNITIES.

PICKLEBALL WILL FALL UNDER NONCONTACT SUPPORTS, WHICH SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN THE GOVERNOR'S ORDER.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT KIND OF SIGNAGE AND POLICIES WOULD BE PUT IN PLACE. I WANTED TO KIND OF PUT THAT OUT THERE FOR YOU. WE ARE TALKING TO THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND LOOKING AT THOSE. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAD THOUGHTS ON THOSE INDIVIDUALLY. WE'RE ASSESSING ALL OF THOSE.

AND LOOKING TO MAKE SOME DECISIONS AS WE GO HROUGH THIS MONTH ON WHETHER THEY COULD COME BACK AND IF SO, UNDER WHAT NEW

GUIDELINES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS? >> B. KOWALCZYK: MR. HURLEY, A QUESTION ABOUT ENFORCEMENT. WE OPEN SOME OF THESE DIFFERENT AREAS TO PEOPLE. BUT WE STILL HAVE SOME PROTOCOLS IN PLACE. HOW DO WE ENFORCE THAT IF, LIKE THE MASS GATHERINGS OR TOO MANY PEOPLE THAT GATHER IN A PARTICULAR PLACE, WHAT IS THE METHOD OF ENFORCEMENT? AND DOES THAT REQUIRE MORE STAFF TO DEAL WITH?

>> THAT'S THE CHALLENGE. INITIALLY SOME OF THESE WE DIDN'T CLOSE BECAUSE TENNIS SHOULD BE OKAY.

BUT THEN WE GOT DISPATCHED OUT WITH POLICE OFFICERS TO LOOK AT THE TENNIS COURTS AND CERTAIN TIMES OF THE DAY, EVEN STAFF.

BUT WE, THAT'S THE CHALLENGE. AND SO YOU KNOW, THE WORST CASE IS THE POLICE GET A CALL AND HAVE TO DISPATCH SOMEONE.

WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT WHETHER WE WOULD WANT TO HAVE, NOT A PARK RANGER BUT RECREATION STAFF WITH FACILITIES THAT AREN'T OPEN OR OPERATING THAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO GO OUT A BUSIER TIMES AND BE A PRESENCE, ENFORCEMENT MIGHT BE ANOTHER QUESTION.

BUT YOU KNOW, I THINK THE PRESENCE AND TALKING TO PEOPLE AND EDUCATING THEM. AND WORST CASE MAYBE HAVING TO CALL THE POLICE. BUT HEADING OFF SOME OF THOSE.

REALLY, WITH ALL THE HOURS IT'S DAYLIGHT AND THINGS GO ON, IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO HAVE CONSIST ENFORCEMENT.

IT WOULD BE EDUCATION AND HOPEFULLY IDEAS HAVE EMERGED NOW COMPARED TO WHEN WE FIRST STARTED THIS.

I'M SURE THERE WOULD BE CHALLENGES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ONE THOUGHT I HAVE ALONG THAT LINE.

IF PEOPLE DO EDUCATION, LET PEOPLE KNOW.

FOR EXAMPLE, TENNIS COURTS OR PICKLEBALL, I KNOW PICKLEBALL HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE. IF THEY CONTINUOUSLY NOT, NOT FOLLOW THE SOCIAL DISTANCING, YOU CAN SHUT IT BACK FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE RULES OR WE HAVE TO SHUT IT DOWN. THAT'S AN OPTION WE ALWAYS HAVE,

CORRECT? >> YEAH, AND SOME CASES WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE BROADLY.

OUR DOG PARK HAS REMNANTS OF USER GROUPS WE CAN GET WORD OUT

[02:00:04]

MASS WAY. WE'RE GOING TO REOPEN.

HERE'S THE GUIDELINES. IF WE DON'T SEE YOU FOLLOWING THEM WE'LL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CLOSE AGAIN.

PICKLEBALL TO SOME EXTENT BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF PLAYERS THAT REGISTER THROUGH THE COMMUNITY CENTER.

WE HAVE A LOT OF NONRESIDENTS AND FOLKS FROM OTHER COMMUNITIES THAT UTILIZE THE AMENITIES. AND SO IT IS DIFFICULT TO BROADLY GET THE WORD OUT. AND PEOPLE WALK BY SIGNS ALL THE TIME AND DON'T SEE THEM OR DON'T WANT TO SEE THEM.

THERE WOULD DEFINITELY BE CHALLENGES.

THAT IS AN PTION TO GIB AN OPPORTUNITY, AT LEAST SOME OF ONES WE THINK LIKE TENNIS COURTS IN MY MIND HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO FUNCTION TO RIGHT WAY. YOU COULD GIVE IT AN ATTEMPT.

IF IT DIDN'T WORKOUT, YOU COULD CLOSE.

IT'S A TOUGH CALL. AND THAT'S WHY WE WANTED YOUR

FEEDBACK ON IT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OTHER THOUGHTS? COMMENTS?

>> B. KOWALCZYK: IS THERE A POSSIBILITY OF RESERVING THE COURTS? IS THAT SOMETHING YOU HAVE CONSIDERED? OR TO WHICH WORK -- TOO MUCH

WORK? >> THAT'S A GREAT SUGGESTION.

WE TALKED WITH NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES ABOUT, SAME CONCEPT AS WITH THE COMMUNITY CENTER. YOU WOULD ACTUALLY, IT WOULD BE FREE BUT YOU GO ONLINE AND GET PERMITTED FOR BLOCKS OF TIME ON THE TENNIS COURTS. AGAIN, THAT WOULD WORK IN TERMS OF WE COULD SIGN IT AND SAY IF SOMEONE SHOWS UP WITH A PERMIT OR WHATEVER, THEY GET THE COURTS.

BUT AS SOON AS YOU UNLOCK THE TENNIS COURTS THERE WILL BE PEOPLE ON THEM WHETHER THEY RESERVED THEM OR NOT.
