5. 8:35 - 30 Minute Q&A with Clark Lyda

Mr. Lyda is asked to please address the following:

a) What use do you propose for the Perry Mansion itself, other than the 5 hotel rooms?

b) Will you continue to use the chapel as a Religious Assembly? Will there be any other uses for the chapel?

c) Can you provide us any indication of the number, type, and size of the events you will need to host in order to meet your investment objectives for the "event center?" Particularly in the case of events held on weekends or in the evening…would they need to be held monthly? weekly? more often? Would the events be seasonal in any way, so that some times of year would be significantly more busy than others?

d) The last version of the original hotel-school proposal that we saw in late 2010 included an agreement that outdoor amplified sound would be disallowed. Why has that concession disappeared from the new proposal? Is outdoor amplified sound critical to the business model being proposed?

e) What are the sizes of the three distinct "zones" of the property -- west of Waller Creek, between Waller Creek and the interior stone wall, and between the wall and Red River? What percentages of the first two zones are within the floodplain?

f) Please discuss the parking layout for the project on both the upper and lower grounds

g) Please speak to projected improvements along 41st Street
