Enterprise has another pipeline in the vicinity which has been in operation since 1981. Under Enterprise's Public Awareness Program, property owners within a 1 -mile radius of our pipelines receive an annual notice which contains information concerning our pipeline. Federal regulations (49 GFR 195.440) require pipeline operators to develop and implement public awareness programs consistent with the requirements of the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act (PSIA) of 2002. In addition to Enterprise's annual mailings to landowners, we conduct drills with emergency responders, 811 One -Call activities and participate in local events.

The enclosure of the pump station area on Enterprise's property will be comprised of an 8 -foot stonewall integrated with sound abatement material in compliance with city ordinances and the laws and regulations applicable to the U.S. Departmentof Transportation (DOT) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This area will have signs : "Restricted Area– Authorized Personnel Only.” Manual gates shall remain closed and locked, except when employees are present. In addition, the facilitywlll be illuminated and have cameras that have 24 x 7 monitoring. A technician will be stationed and will have an office at the site. Bacon went on to speak about a pipeline coexisting with development and provided aerial images of a pump station in a rural area and a pump station in the middle of an existing development. He explained that a pump station can operate with a significant amount of suburban growth because the pump station is enclosed in buildings and prepared with noise protections. Bacon next showed an aerial and side view of a typical building -enclosed pump station with sound abatement.

Bacon said that Enterprise had purchased a 10 acre site and the station will only take up 2 acres. He said they will work with the City on landscaping and other requirements and no one will know it is a pipeline or pump station. He next provided answers to questions asked regarding the purpose and location of a pump station. E PUMP STATION PURPOSE & LOCATION -RELATED QUESTIONS Question: Whatdoesa pumpstationdo? Pump stations, meter stationsand valves area I I necessary parts of a pipeline so that the pipeline can move products efficiently and safely. Pump stations maintain How rates overlong distances. Motordriven pumps are utilized to increase or "boost" the line pressure so that the overall pipeline continues to flow in accordance with engineered design parameters. The Enterprise pump station is similar in concept to the water/wastewatertreatmentfacilitiescommonlyemployed by the City of Georgetown. Question: Why did Enterprise select the locationof the pump stationand can the pump station be placed in a differentlocation outside of the city limits? Pump station locations are primarily driven by hydraulic(design) requirements and the ability to acquire reliable, high voltage power service. In this case, the Georgetown -owned electric utility has two existing substations capable of delivering rel is ble power to this location and selling Enterprise the required electricity to run the pump station. Bacon then provided answers to noise related questions that had been raised and provided a depiction of the proposed property. E PUMP STATION NOISE -RELATED QUESTIONS Question: Does the station generate noise and has an independent assessmentof the noise level been done? Any type of pump or compressor will generate noise. In this case, an independent assessment will be conducted as a portion of the overall station design and installation. This study will confirm that we are in compliance with the noise ordinances of the City of Georgetown and was agreed to during our initial project consultations with the City of Georgetown Planning Department. Enterprise wil I use experienced, professional engineers in the design of the sound reduction technology In addition to the Independent assessment.

Bacon spoke on sound abatement technologies that would be installed and said Enterprise would abide by all of the City's noise requirements. Bacon next spoke on questions raised regarding revenue of such a project to the City. He explained that the pump station would provide 3 different sources of revenue to the City. • The Georgetown -owned electric utility will sell electricity to the facility • Annual property tax of approximately $96,757 will be paid. • A one-time sales and use tax of $240,000 will be realized with an additional $1.094 million per year of property tax that Williamson County and the School District will collect PUMP STATION REVENUE -RELATED QUESTIONS Question: Does the City get any financial benefit frorn the pump station being located at this site? The pump station will provide 3 different sources of revenue to the city. fj=, the Georgetown -owned electric utilitywill sell Enterprise the requiredelectrlcityto run the pump station. The pump station's operating power cost Is estimated to be between S200,000- $300,000 per month. Second, Enterprise estimates an annual Property Tax on the pump station and pipeline of $46,757.

Bacon said Enterprise wants to work with the neighbors and community or anyone affected by the project Jonrowe asked if there is a required form of communication either federally or by the state. Bacon explained that there is not a specific program for communication but Enterprise is more than willing to work with the community. Jonrowe then asked about the noise ordinance. Sofia Nelson, the Planning Director, said she is not specifically familiar with the ordinance but will have representatives from Code Enforcement and the Police Department at the second reading to clarify. Graham Bacon provided a loudness comparison chart He explained that the noise ordinance restricts noise to 56 decibels, which is similar to quiet urban noise or a dishwasher in the next room. Jonrowe asked if this is measured from the property line. Nelson confirmed that it is. Bacon explained that the noise is generally a constant noise. Jonrowe asked what decibel would be reached without the building. Bacon said he does not know. Councilmember Gonzalez asked how many Enterprise pump stations are in operation for this pipeline. Bacon said none right now, but the pipeline will have a total of 6 stations. Gonzalez asked how many pump stations are in operation across the country. Bacon answered that he would have to look up an accurate number but it is thousands. Gonzalez asked how many accidents had taken place at pump stations. Bacon asked for a more specific definition of accident. Gonzalez answered that it would be any incident involving Hazmat. Bacon said only one or two. Mayor Ross called on persons who had signed up to speak on this item.

Ross asked the City Attorney, Charlie McNabb, about the authority. McNabb said there are two types of state laws that the City has to follow. He explained that the state gives the pipeline company the authority of eminent domain in order to establish their pipelines to provide power to the public. McNabb noted that since the City has zoning authority, they will be able to control the look. He explained that the scope of Council should go to noise regulations and aesthetics in the neighborhood. McNabb said safety issues are not part of the City's authority. He explained that even if the Council did not approve the rezoning request, Enterprise can still put in the pump station, because it is an approved use under its current zoning also. McNabb explained that by passing the ordinance, the City can have a say in the aesthetics and noise of the facility. Mayor Ross reminded everyone that Graham Bacon had already described the company's intent to follow City regulations for landscaping, noise, lighting standards and buffer yard setbacks. Ross noted again that even if Council votes against the zoning, the pump station can still be built. Councilmember Gipson asked for clarification on the City's legal status. McNabb reiterated that if Council denies the zoning, the existing zoning also allows this use and the level of regulation with the new zoning would help with screening walls and landscaping. McNabb explained that the City is preempted by the state and federal law. Hesser voiced that it is not possible to say no and he does not understand. He spoke of (racking regulations from 2 years ago, that were passed with the express purpose of regulating underground oil and gas pipelines. He asked how this has been replaced by federal case law. Hesser said he wants to know about League City, mentioned by the speakers. McNabb explained that the facility in League City might have been an underground facility, but Georgetown does not have such an ordinance. Councilmember Eby pointed out that even if the League City zoning is unknown, here in Georgetown, the zoning does allow the pump station. Eby said that, unfortunately, the answer to the question of whether the pump station can be built is yes. She said that the City can only have insight on how it looks. Jonrowe asked about special use permits. Nelson said it can be looked at and this is part of the UDC amendment list that the Council will be reviewing. Jonrowe asked if disannexation is an option. City Manager, David Morgan said the annexation to the City requires them to abide by the UDC requirements. He explained that if they were not in the City, the City could not require aesthetics and noise regulations. Mayor Ross said that disannexation is something that the City cannot just do. McNabb said a petition from the affected landowners would be needed and the City cannot do it. McNabb said this would be unusual and he would need to check into it. Jonrowe asked if there are examples of eminent domain by the pump station companies. McNabb said his earlier reference was to Grand Prairie in 2010. He said that Grand Prairie denied an above ground facility and the United States Court of Appeals said the City was preempted in the safety area but still had a say in the aesthetics as the zoning authority. Gonzalez said this all comes down to 2 things and the property is currently zoned agriculture. He explained that the company can put in the pump station if zoned agriculture or as a business park. He explained that, as a business park, the City can insist on more regulations. Nelson confirmed. Motion by Fought, second by Gipson to approve Item L. Eby suggested that if Council was in agreement, she would like to look into these zoning issues for the future. Approved: 6-0 (Brainard absent) M. Public Hearing and First Reading of an Ordinance rezoning Lot 1, Block F, Summit at Rivery Park Phases 5 & 6, located at 1101 Woodlawn Avenue to amend the Summit at Rivery Park Planned Unit Development (PUD) District— Sofia Nelson, CNU-A, Planning Director (action required) Sofia Nelson, Planning Director, spoke on the rezoning request to amend the Summit at Rivery Park Planned Unit Development District (PUD). She explained that this is to alter the sign regulations for this PUD — a request to look at the signage. Nelson displayed a location map, zoning map, future land use map and aerial maps. She provided a chart showing sign development standards, the current PUD standard and the proposed amendment. Nelson said the amendment would add one additional sign to the front of the convention center.
