Hancock Golf Course Community Engagement Update October 5, 2012

From: , Kimberly >
Date: Saturday, October 6, 2012 10:48 AM
Subject: Hancock Golf Course Update

All,

Attached, please find a Hancock Golf Course Community Engagement Action Plan status update. The highlights include the following:

Historical Designation
The historical designation proposal has been presented to the Golf Advisory and the Parks and Recreation Board. Both entities supported moving forward with application for local Historic
District Designation, COA Landmark Designation for the center, National Register District Designation and Texas Historical Commission Interpretive Marker. The Golf Division is working with
internal Planning Staff to prepare the applications. As we work through the application project, we will update you as to the progress and timeline.

Reclaimed Waterline
The Water Utility will need to make some changes to the layout of the vault requiring a short delay in the start of the irrigation renovation. The new vault will require a competitive bid
and it is anticipated one month to 6 weeks before installation. The original plan included trenching next week. However, because of the latest development the start date is now November
1st with tree protection and silt fence the week prior. It is the Department’s intention to complete this project in 2 months.

The rest of the action plan is attached. As always, the Golf Division and I remain available to provide additional details.

Respectfully,

Kimberly McNeeley, Assistant Director
Austin Parks and Recreation Department

4. 8:40- Review status of survey, ways to further publicize, and close date
5. 8:50- Review top issues that need to be negotiated
6. 9:05- Discussion of whether it would be worthwhile to request a most directly affected neighbor (e.g., someone living adjacent to the Perry Estate) to give a short presentation (10-15 minutes) summarizing his/her views of the developer's proposal prior to the discussion by the neighborhood as a whole.  Thought is to have a "counterpoint" to balance Mr. Lyda's presentation.

Hancock Neighborhood Association Meeting Agenda – September 19th

1 – Approve Minutes

2 – Motion to change the date of the regularly scheduled November meeting from the 21st to the 14th.

3 – Libby Albrecht – Co-Founder of Texas Collaborative Consumption

4 – Carol Gibbs – City of Austin Neighborhood Liaison

5 – Report from Perry Committee

7 – Vote on whether or not to call a special meeting for October 17th that would include a presentation by Clark Lyda of his proposed development for the Perry Estate

8 – Motion offered by Mark Burch

Resolved:
In order to avoid enacting changes premised on assumptions that may not come to fruition, the Hancock Neighborhood Association opposes approval of any neighborhood plan amendment or request for a zoning change on any property within its boundaries if:

the amendment or request reflects a proposal that requires a demolition permit for complete removal of an existing structure or building on the property
AND the demolition permit has not been legally granted at the time the request for a plan amendment or zoning change is filed.

9 – Motion offered by Mark Burch

Resolved:
The Hancock Neighborhood Association opposes any current or future proposal for development or reuse of the Perry Estate that includes any one of these elements:

1. Outdoor amplified sound anywhere on the site other than an individually owned lot zoned for residential use. Prohibitions on amplified sound in areas zoned other than residential must be enacted in a form that is bound to the ownership of the land and that transfers with its sale and, if possible, in zoning overlays and public covenants.

2. Rezoning of any portion of the property located west of Waller Creek to a base category other than single-family.

Meeting Notice - Amendment to City Code creating Central Austin - University Overlay Dist. - Group residential conditional use

Meeting Notice - September 27 - An amendment to Chapter 25-2-180 and 25-2-652 of the city code creating the Central Austin - University Overlay District (CAUA), in which group residential land use would become a conditional instead of permited use in multi-family residence moderate-high density (MF-4) base zoning districts.

Meeting Notice - Proposed Amendment to City Code to make outdoor amphitheaters or similar structures conditional use

Meeting Notice - September 27 - Proposed Amendment to Chapter 25-2 of City Code to make outdoor amphitheaters or similar structures conditional use in all zoning districts
