Approved: 6-0 (Brainard absent) Legislative Regular Agenda L. Consideration and possible action regarding vehicular traffic at the intersection of West Majestic Oak Lane and Apache Mountain Lane in the Sun City Subdivision — Jim Briggs, General Manager of Utilities Jim Briggs, the City's General Manager of Utilities, spoke on the item regarding traffic at the intersection of West Majestic Oak Land and Apache Mountain Lane. Briggs explained that the information had also been presented in the earlier workshop meeting and was placed on the legislative regular agenda so that citizens would have the opportunity to share their comments and concerns. Briggs began the presentation with the history: • September 23, 2014: City Council requested a Traffic Impact Analysis • April 14, 2015: TIA presented to the City Council with a recommendation of a temporary closure • September 28, 2015: Rocky Hollow Creek Drive opened and the temporary closure began. • January 19, 2016: Majestic Oak at Apache Mountain re -opened Briggs provided a map of the area and intersection. He described the area within the City limits and the area in the County. Briggs explained that CR 245 is now complete and connects to FM 2338, Williams Drive. Briggs next spoke on the development standards at the time of platting: • Woodland Park: Williamson County Subdivision Regulations, jointly administered by the City and the County • West Majestic Oaks created as local street to serve less than 1,000 Average Daily Trips (ADTs) based on lots in Woodland Park meeting street, with stub to then "Northern Lands' for connectivity • Woodland Park Drive created as Collector road to serve less than 2,000 ADT based on lots in Woodland Park • No Traffic Impact Analysis was required for the development • Sun City: Sun City Development Agreement and UDC • West Majestic Oaks approved as point of connectivity to existing platted local street stub in 81^ Amendment (2012) Briggs next provided a slide on the UDC Standards for platting today: • Woodland Park: Would develop under UDC provisions administered by the City and reviewed by Williamson County: 1. Would develop under Chapter 13: Rural standards vs. Chapter 12: Urban standards 2. West majestic Oaks created as rural residential street to serve less than 1,000 ADT based on lots in Woodland Park feeding street, with stub to adjacent property for connectivity. Minimum ROW 50 feet, same as exists today. Minimum pavement width increased to 24 feet from 20 feet. 3. Woodland Park Drive created as Rural Collector road to serve less than 5,000 ADT based on lots in Woodland Park. Minimum ROW 70 feet, less than exists today, with 30 foot pavement width. Curb and gutter and sidewalks would not be required today. 4. TIA would be required if total lots generated more than 2,000 ADT. Briggs next showed the 2015 TIA Results: • Traffic projections will substantially stay the same in the future • Rocky Hollow Creek Trail is an alternate for traffic but the model makes the assumption that existing ADT on Majestic Oaks will continue due to the establishment of habit for current drivers within Sun City • The Level of Service at the intersections studies is Level of Service A during peak hours, with "A" being the optimum evaluation level for roadway congestion analysis Briggs reviewed the City Council Direction from April 14, 2015 • Study traffic on Majestic Oaks prior to completion of Rocky Hollow Creek Drive to CR 245 • Temporarily close Majestic Oaks at Apache Mountain in Sun City once Rocky Hollow Creek opens • Re -open Majestic Oaks in 60 -90 days and perform additional traffic studies. Briggs spoke on the traffic counts. He explained the set requirements, according to the UDC, and spoke on service levels. He provided a slide on Majestic Oaks Traffic Volume Evaluation: • Majestic Oaks Average Vehicles Per Day: • Before closure and Rocky Hollow Creek Trail Opening: 1,467 average VPD • Post re -opening: 878 average VPD • Last single day count of 1,093 on May 10, 2016, possible trend towards increasing ADT over time • Rocky Hollow Creek Trail —2,053 VPD • Closure and Rocky Hollow Creek Results: Average VPD on Majestic Oaks now below County Subdivision regulations limits for a local roadway. Trend expectations is that ADT may rise, however, standards for street classification are for new roadways and will not require change in classification Briggs explained that even with a trend upwards in counts, the numbers still fall below the requirements and asked for feedback from the City Council. He asked if he could answer any questions or if anyone would like further clarification. Briggs said it is important to understand the issue completely and how all complies with the UDC. Briggs explained that the roadway is currently open and the Council could vote to keep it open or make a change. Persons signed up to speak on Item L included: Brian Robinson, Rachel Scott, Nora Longoria, Liza Dominguez, Brian Polk, Chris Mann, Donna Betts, Jean Ann Rider, Eric Grenier, Liesl Grenier, Lester Jones, Tom Kissinger, Mimi Kile, Marshall Friedman, Daryl Eldridge, Larry Kobrin, Bill Ernser, Alan Adler, Mike Hausman, Maurine Rothschild, Marc Rothschild, Jerry Schaffer, Jane Kendrick, Don Scott, Ken Steed, Thomas Ryan, Bobby Cox, Rich Barbee, Ben Butler, Patty Pixley, Kathy Powers, Kurt Schaller Comments and Concerns from speakers included: Traffic is higher than reported at the time of the TIA Traffic growth is eminent Traffic counts exceed over the 1000 mark Closure best option for safety How many citations have been issued? Don't believe it is unsafe Covey said would widen road and residents refused, just wanted closed No accidents Need more connectivity Catastrophe puts people at risks Walking dogs was forced off of sidewalk into rock because of speed Close road for safety Empirical evidence — traffic volume is based on a planning requirement. Most would consider 2500 Level of service is A — the best Connectivity is key Sun City does not have enough connections Roads are for vehicles, sidewalks are for pedestrians Sheriff should ticket the speeders Emotions drive false facts Street safety is a problem on every road Picking fights with neighbors is unacceptable Closing a connector will cause more problems Average speed over 40 or 50 mph Woodland Park is not in city limits, why are we investing time and money Safety is a County issue, not a City issue Timed the difference of going CR245 or Majestic Oak - 90 seconds Counts show Woodland Park and Neighborhood 51 are over counts City Counts are wrong and not provided enough times Extra 300,000 vehicles coming through the neighborhood annually First fatality will close it Speeding caused jumping out of the way Sun City drivers are not going to run over your children or dogs Curves prevent speeding If left open, real estate value goes down Drivers need to be careful everywhere Consider installing speed bumps Safety not the issue County denied closure Closure will be an unwanted precedence Rocky Hollow unprotected intersection with fatalities 4T Ranch is a protected intersection with traffic light Covey offered street lights, sidewalks and road expansion — all rejected Traffic violations should be a police matter Exits from Sun City are poorly designed Story telling is misdirected Why continue this, everything shows to be compliant This is a County issue City Council needs to step back Why can't use road when we are paying for it Georgetown has spent 175,000 dollars on this of taxpayer's money Woodland Park does not pay city taxes How many dollars has Woodland Park spent — nothing Speeding and safety is Williamson County's responsibility Can't drive distracted Near miss while running — almost hit by speeder Valerie Covey is telling two different things to two different groups Volume of traffic grew overnight Majestic Oak called a cut -threw Why not put up stop signs Enforce the law Neighborhood 51 needs the road to be closed 56 homes in neighborhood have driveways that are impossible to back out of Keep open for future discussion Too much commercial traffic Safety more important than 90 seconds of saved time Counts tell us there is a problem Stick by the code No room for sidewalks Use as emergency access only Jim Briggs came forward to be available for questions from the City Council. Motion by Hesser, second by Fought to take no action at this time, leaving the road open. Fought said the question came up - why did the City get involved. He explained that everyone has to live together as neighbors. Fought said there is a need to look at people as neighbors. He said that when a neighbor has a safety problem, he will be happy to get involved. Fought said that when the road was closed, he expected some steps would be taken by Woodland Park to come up with solutions for safety — roads not wide enough, no sidewalks, etc. He suggested that Woodland Park should look at a PID bond. Fought said he expected more productive conversations with the County and it seems the neighborhood did not go far enough. Fought said with the current numbers, there is no compelling reason to close the road. Fought said many other roads have outgrown the standard of their original plan. Fought said he would vote to keep the road open but will advocate for Woodland Park residents to pursue solutions. He added that it is a common courtesy to not cut through someone else's neighborhood. Gipson asked Briggs for clarification between the 1000 figure and the 2500 figure and asked when the studies had been done. Briggs explained that Alliance Transportation Group was a study done by the Pulte development for evaluation. He said the City did analysis prior to closing the road last year and another analysis post -closing, in May, to evaluate trends. Briggs said that West Majestic neighborhood did a study in the spring of 2016 that was also provided in the agenda packet. Gonzalez thanked everyone for taking the time to share their concerns. Gonzalez said he has been walking lately and these issues are happening in all neighborhoods. He explained that in a growing city, you cannot get around it and must learn to accept it and practice safety. Gonzalez does not think that closing the road because of traffic trending upward makes sense and would not be helpful. Jonrowe asked Briggs to pull up the map from the earlier presentation. She asked if there are homes still being built in Sun City. Briggs answered yes and showed on the map where they will be. Jonrowe asked if these homes were considered in the analysis. Briggs said yes and they are consistent with traffic counts of Sun City traffic. Jonrowe asked about the northern portion on the map. Briggs said the northern lands had been included in the analysis. Jonrowe asked about Chapter 12 standards and Chapter 13 standards and how they are chosen. Briggs said the standard is whether it is in the city or out of the city and the size of the lots. Jonrowe asked about annexation. Briggs said Woodland Park could not be considered for annexation because of the large lots and septic, which is considered rural. Jonrowe asked if a road is used by City traffic, should it be built to urban standards. Briggs said UDC is looking at modifications to that standard. Jonrowe asked for the definition for connectivity back when 1000 ADT was first configured. Briggs explained the access of adjoining properties and how points of connection provide access logically. Briggs went on to explain that this was not an emergency connection. Briggs said there was an emergency connection to the proposed fire station but this was not it. Jonrowe asked what the shelf life of a TIA is. Briggs said in today's market about 30 days. Briggs said when standards are tripped, the City goes back to update. Briggs said the rapid growth that Georgetown is experiencing is causing something today to be outdated tomorrow. Jonrowe said the City needs a fine policy. Briggs said evaluations are always performed periodically. Jonrowe asked if the City had any different feedback from the County. Briggs said nothing fundamentally different. Jonrowe asked about Sun City creating a PID to take care of their own connectivity. Briggs explained how a PID is funded. Jonrowe asked what the costs would be. Briggs said he does not know but could bring back figures. Jonrowe asked if there were any other neighborhoods in Sun City that connect to a rural development. Briggs said there were not. Eby asked about the point of order. She explained that if it was the will of Council to not want to close the road, no action is necessary. Eby said she would always choose safety in the scenario of safety versus convenience. Eby said connectivity problems in Sun City should not be a problem for other neighborhoods. Eby asked Briggs if this is in compliance with the UDC. Briggs confirmed. Eby asked if the only option is to open or close the road. Briggs said it would be Council's prerogative to give direction but tonight's discussion is to determine if the road should be open or closed. He said the road is predominantly a County road and must be resolved in the County. Briggs said if the City wanted to put in a stop sign, it would have to be at the edge of Sun City. Anything else would need to be by the county. Hesser acknowledged there is a problem and said the City has done all that they can and the County must get involved. Hesser said everyone should take a different route and be a good neighbor. Approved: 4-2 (Jonrowe and Eby opposed, Brainard absent) M. Public Hearing and First Reading of an Ordinance for a Special Use Permit to allow a multifamily development in the Local Commercial (C-1) District on a 7.366 acre site being Lot 2 of Wesleyan at Estrella subdivision, located at 4121 Williams Drive (Live Oak Apartments) — Sofia Nelson, CNU-A, Planning Director (action required) Councilmember Gipson recused himself from Item M, filed a conflict of interest form with the City Secretary and left the dais during the discussion of Item M. Sofia Nelson, the City's Planning Director, presented the item for a special use permit at 4121 Williams Drive. She said that the applicant was requesting 106 units and went on to describe the property. Nelson provided the zoning map and described the classification of the property. She next described the surrounding area uses. Nelson showed the Residential Use Limitation of a C-1 classification: 1. Location and context of multifamily development be secondary and supportive of established surrounding commercial use. 2. Maximum 50% impervious coverage 3. Setbacks are increased by 15 feet whenever adjacent to residentially zoned properties 4. Maximum 35 foot building height 5. 15 foot building separation between buildings 6. Projects will meet Building Design standards, lighting standards, non-residential landscape requirements, common amenity requirements and Parkland dedication requirements. Nelson showed and described the future land use map. She next spoke on the Special Use Permit Approval Criteria: 1. The proposed special use is not detrimental to the health, welfare, and safety of the surrounding neighborhood or its occupants. 2. The proposed conceptual site layout, circulation plan, and design are harmonious with the character of the surrounding area. 3. The proposed use does not negatively impact existing uses in the area and in the City through impacts on public infrastructure such as roads, parking facilities, and water and sewer systems, and on public services such as police and fire protection and solid waste collection and the ability of existing infrastructure and services to adequately provide services. 4. The proposed use does not negatively impact existing uses in the area and in the City through the creation of noise, glare, fumes, dust, smoke, vibration, fire hazard or other injuries or noxious impact. Nelson went on to say that the Planning and Zoning Commission approved the SUP request 6 — 0. She then read the ordinance caption. Mayor Ross opened the public hearing at 8.40 PM. Persons signed up to speak on Item M included: Jean Latsha, Jerry Harris, Craig Lintner, Ercel Brashear, David Hays, Charlie Baker, Walt Doering, Melba Doering, Mary Ellen Kersch, Judy Shepherd, Joe Reedholm and Karolyn Reedholm, Comments and concerns from the speakers included: Important for all to be able to live in Georgetown Kids better off by going to school with diversity — a plus Wages haven't kept up with housing costs 40% of Georgetown students on assistance lunch program Affordable housing is one small step to address the vision statement Human beings are above the financial capitalization Affordable housing is a moral responsibility Georgetown is referred to as elitist and this is not good Not attracting enough families to establish diversity Affordable housing is needed HTC developers are important This is good for investors and workers Pricing of housing is impossible for many All should be able to work, play and retire here Traffic problems exist with or without affordable housing Affordable housing does not increase GISD enrollment by many — not as many as housing developments Workforce housing is necessary Workforce housing is an asset, not a liability Council needs to decide what is best for Georgetown Traffic on Williams Drive is getting worse. Unforeseen problems have a commonality of no plan Zoned C-1. Multifamily is an allowed use. Asking for SUP Financial impact is misunderstood Tax rolls increase 11 projects average %z million in taxes annually Commercial venture — not a free ride No contribution from the City needed The applicant for the project, Jean Latsha, provided a presentation on the development. She showed images of the site plan and spoke regarding letters of support. She explained that the request is simply a request for a special use permit, not a rezoning request. She asked the Council to realize that the request is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and the UDC. Mayor Ross closed the public hearing at 9.15 PM. Motion by Jonrowe, second by Eby to approve Item M. Fought said the summary sheet showed that staff recommends denial. He asked Nelson to explain staffs recommendation for denial. Nelson said it is based on the qualifications for a SUP. She explained that in 2014 the requirements changed for C-1 classifications. There was a request from Council to analyze the residential use limitation and commercial uses in multifamily zoned property. Nelson said there is a portion of undeveloped property behind this property. Staff looked at the possibility of residential development within the corridor. Nelson said that staff is still recommending denial. Fought said this is one of three developments going for tax credit. He said affordable housing is necessary for seniors, workforce and low income, but each with different requirements. Fought said that the City has a responsibility to create a market condition where employees can live here. Fought said he objects to low income since we already have more than other cities. Fought said he would like to postpone this item until staff can come back with recommendations for policy on this. Motion by Fought to amend the original motion to postpone until staff can provide recommendations for policy. No second was heard. Mayor Ross announced that the motion dies for lack of a second. Nelson said that the Planning and Zoning Commission approved the SUP with a vote of 5-0. Jonrowe asked about trees within the project. Nelson referred the question to the applicant. Latsha said there are no heritage trees that she is aware of, but that the developer would not be asking for any variances for tree preservation. Jonrowe said she understands staff concerns, but still supports the development. Jonrowe said the request should be looked at with current policies and not have to wait for future policies. Hesser said he supports the project because of the location and the need for Georgetown to serve its citizens. Approved: 4-1 (Fought opposed, Brainard absent, Gipson recused with a filed Conflict of Interest) N.

Colby Dennison, the applicant, provided a presentation showing the reasons that mixed use projects are a big win for Georgetown. He provided images of residents in similar facilities. Dennison explained how the project was compliant with the 2030 Comprehensive Plan for future land use and mixed use. He explained how the project addressed the housing element need and spoke on the senior affordable housing deficit in Georgetown. Dennison spoke on how the developer is a proven team. He went on to explain how the project reduces ultimate traffic impact on Williams Drive. Nelson read the caption Mayor Ross opened the public hearing at 9.31 PM Persons signed up to speak on Item N included: Blake Rue, Darlene Duncan, Darren Lewis, Jackie Weissmeier, Ercel Brashear, Marshall Friedman, Sherry Stevens, Sue Winkles, Geraldine Carolain and Elizabeth Myers Comments and concerns from the speakers included: Description of senior living accommodations and living Resident describing the benefits Need for more affordable housing Senior living affordable housing is a wonderful thing Senior housing provides safety for seniors Elevators are provided Each floor has a trash dump — appreciated by seniors Activities are provided Need for senior housing in Georgetown Waiting line for senior affordable is too long Georgetown is expecting a huge growth in seniors Unfair to make seniors homeless They have contributed all of their lives and it is a responsibility to care for them Need to have established criteria on affordable housing Taking away land for commercial use in the future Location needs to be better considered Property has been marketed for almost 15 years Tax bill on the property has been paid as $85,000 annually Owner of property needs relief Worked with commercial development and tailored project for city Huge waiting list that proves the demand 50/50 affordable and non -restricted property Residents love the environment of this program Great need for more senior housing Social life provided helps well-being Pictures were provided by the property manager of San Gabriel Senior Village Mayor Ross closed the public hearing at 10.05 PM. Motion by Jonrowe, second by Eby to approve Item N Fought said the project fits the criteria he described. Jonrowe supports this project and said that the City needs to get more in depth with these decisions. Gipson said he will not support the project because the location is a challenge. Hesser asked if there was a TIA and said that he agrees with Gipson that it is the wrong location. Nelson answered that a TIA was not required. Ross reminded the Council that the property has been on the market for 15 years. Approved: 4-2 (Hesser and Gipson, opposed, Brainard absent) O.

Bills, AICP, LEED AP, Housing Coordinator Jennifer Bills, the City's Housing Coordinator, spoke on the item requesting a deadline amendment. Bilis showed a location map of Northwest Apartments. She explained that this is an existing project, built in the 1970s. In 2014 a tax credit application was submitted for renovations. They received a late allocation of tax credit because of other dropped out applicants. Bills explained how this late allocation put the property behind in their deadline for renovations and why they are now asking for an extension to the end of the year. Mayor Ross asked about the resolution. Bills said it would simply change the deadline date. Motion by Eby, second by Jonrowe to approve Item O.
