[INVOCATION]

FIRST ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS THE APPROVAL OF OUR MINUTES FROM OUR APRIL 7TH MEETING.

HAVE ALL OF THE COMMISSIONERS HAD A CHANCE TO READ THOSE MINUTES? ARE THERE ANY REVISIONS OR CHANGES THAT NEED TO BE DONE, OR I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION FOR APPROVAL?

>> HEY, FRED?

>> YES.

>> ON ZONING CASE Z202101 -- >> YES, SIR?

>> I I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS CASE IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE APPEALED AND SO I DON'T KNOW THAT THE MINUTES ARE, YOU KNOW, REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HOUR AND A HALF DISCUSSION THAT WE HAD ON IT.

I DON'T THINK -- I DIDN'T KEEP MY NOTES, BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THAT EVERYBODY THAT SPOKE AGAINST IT IS NOT LISTED, AND I KNOW THERE WAS ONE OTHER THAT SPOKE IN FAVOR THAT IS NOT LISTED IN THE MEETING.

LISTED IN THE MEETING MINUTES.

I BELIEVE BRAD VOTED ON THAT CASE ALSO.

I THINK BRAD IS MISSING FROM A YAY OR A NAY IN THE MINUTES OF THAT FIRST ZONING CASE.

>> OKAY.

BRAD, ARE YOU ON?

>> YES.

>> DID YOU HEAR WHAT CLINT SAID, BRAD? I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS ON, CLINT.

>> I THINK HE WAS A NAY.

>> I WAS A NAY.

I'M SORRY.

I WAS WAITING TO BE UNMUTED BY THE HOST.

>> SORRY.

>> I WAS ON.

I CALLED IN THAT DAY AND WAS PRESENT FOR THE WHOLE MEETING, AND I WAS -- IT WAS A 4-2 NAY, I BELIEVE, AND I WAS ONE OF THE NAYS.

>> SO THERE ARE THREE NAYS THERE IN THE OFFICIAL MINUTES.

[MINUTES]

>> OKAY.

>> WE WOULD NEED TO ADD BRAD IN THE NAYS IN THAT.

>> OKAY.

>> IF THIS IS APPEALED I DON'T KNOW HOW WE CAN ENCOURAGE COUNCIL TO LOOK AT THE VIDEO OF THE MEETING, BUT THE NOTES ARE REALLY NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HOUR

[00:05:02]

AND A HALF DISCUSSION WE HAD.

>> I GUESS THAT IS A QUESTION, WHEN THIS GOES TO THE COUNCIL, OTHER THAN OUR NOTES, WHAT ELSE GETS PRESENTED TO THE CITY COUNCIL THAT MIGHT BE A MORE ACCURATE REPRESENTATION?

>> SORRY.

I NEED TO TURN MY PHONE DOWN.

WE HAD KIND OF A CRISIS WITH THE PANDEMIC AND COULDN'T COMPLETE THE MINUTES FULLY.

WE WILL DO THAT AND FORWARD THEM TO THE CITY COUNCIL.

>> SO CAN WE TABLE APPROVAL FOR THE MINUTES UNTIL NEXT MEETING WHEN THEY ARE COMPLETED?

>> OR WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO PROCEDURE WISE MOVING FORWARD?

>> WELL, EVERYBODY WILL BE BACK IN THE OFFICE HOPEFULLY ON MONDAY.

THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN SELF-QUARANTINE AND SO WE WILL BE ABLE TO JOIN IN VIA ZOOM OR WHATEVER WE DECIDE TO GO WITH.

WE SHOULD BE FULLY STAFFED, AT LEAST IN THE OFFICE TO BE ABLE TO ZOOM IN COMMON DAY.

>> SO WHERE DOES THAT PUT US FOR THE MINUTES RIGHT NOW? DO WE NEED TO TABLE THEM?

>> THAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE.

YOU CAN CERTAINLY TABLE THEM UNTIL WE CAN MAKE THEM MORE COMPLETE.

>> OKAY.

>> I THINK KELLY IS TRYING TO TALK AND SHE NEEDS TO BE UNMUTED.

>> I DON'T SEE HER.

>> I PULLED UP -- I'M LOOKING AT EVERYBODY.

IF THE HOST CAN UNMUTE KELLY.

>> AN I UNMUTED? YES.

IT IS UP TO YOU.

IT IS UP TO YOU TO APPROVE OR TABLE.

IT IS UP TO THE BOARD.

IF YOU WANT STAFF TO PUT MORE SPECIFICITY IN THE INSURANCE -- IN THE MINUTES, THAT'S UP TO YOU TO GIVE THAT DIRECTION IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO THAT.

WE NEED A MOTION WHETHER IT IS TABLING IT TO THE NEXT TIME AND DIRECTION TO ADD SOMETHING OR JUST TO APPROVE THEM, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU WOULD PREFER TO TABLE THEM.

>> I THINK THAT'S WHAT I'M HEARING, BUT I WANT TO HEAR FROM CLINT SOME MORE.

GO AHEAD, CLINT.

>> IT IS ACCORDING TO HOW WELL -- IF THIS IS THE ONLY INFORMATION THE COUNCIL HAS BASED ON WHAT OUR DISCUSSION WAS BECAUSE OUR DISCUSSION WAS AN HOUR AND A HALF LONG.

THEN THESE MINUTES ARE WAY OUT OF LINE, OKAY? IF THEY WATCH THE VIDEO OF THE MEETING AND GET THE FULL GIST OF WHAT WAS GOING ON, THEN I THINK THESE ARE PROBABLY OKAY OTHER THAN WE OUGHT TO ADD BRAD IN AS A NAY ON THE MINUTES.

AND SO REALLY WHERE I WAS COMING AT FROM THIS IS THAT I THINK BRAD OUGHT TO BE ADDED AS A NAY ON THE MINUTES.

AND IF THAT'S OKAY, THEN WE CAN MAKE THAT NOTE AND APPROVE THE MINUTES.

THERE WERE ALSO -- I THINK THERE WERE 10 OR 11 PEOPLE THAT SPOKE AGAINST AND I KNOW TWO SPOKE IN FAVOR, AND THERE IS ONLY FOUR AGAINST AND ONE IN FAVOR.

THAT'S WHAT IS LISTED HERE.

KELLY, TO ME IT IS HOW THOROUGH WE WANT THESE MINUTES TO BE.

THIS WAS A PRETTY GOOD DISCUSSION.

>> IF I CAN JUST INTERJECT, WE DO JUST ACTION MINUTES FOR THE MOST PART.

WE DON'T DO THE FULL DISCUSSION.

AND SO WE CAN ADD SOME OF THE DISCUSSION IN THERE, BUT NORMALLY OUR ACTION MINUTES

[00:10:02]

DON'T NEED THE FULL DISCUSSION, BUT WE CAN FIX THE VOTE.

SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE FOR US TO ADD A MORE ROBUST, FULL DISCUSSION INTO THAT ONE ACTION ITEM, WE CAN.

NORMALLY WE JUST DO WHAT WAS LISTED AND THE ACTION.

>> AND HERE IS ANOTHER SUGGESTION.

IF A MEMBER OF THE CHAIRMAN OR YOU, MR. ROSEN -- ROSENBOM WANT TO ZOOM INTO THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING ON THE 14TH YOU CAN DISCUSS IT FURTHER AS WELL.

THAT'S AN OPTION AS WELL.

>> THE SECOND READING.

>> AND YOU CAN ALSO VOTE TO APPROVE WITH CHANGES, BUT IF YOU WANT TO SEE THEM IN A MORE ROBUST DISCUSSION WE SHOULD TABLE THEM AND BRING IT BACK TO YOU.

>> FRED, I GUESS IF IT IS OKAY I WOULD LIKE TO APPROVE THE MINUTES WITH ADDING BRAD AS A NAY ON THAT FIRST ZONING CASE, Z-2021-01 AND I MOVE TO APPROVED -- TO A PROVE.

>> MOTION TO APPROVE.

DO I HAVE A SECOND?

>> SECOND.

>> OKAY.

ALL IN FAVOR SAY I.

>> I.

>> I.

>> OPPOSED? THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

BEFORE WE LEAVE THIS, CLINT, I WOULD -- I LIKE THE RECOMMENDATION I HEARD I THINK FROM ZACH.

IF YOU COULD PUT THAT ON YOUR CALENDAR AND ZOOM INTO THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING, I THINK YOU CAN GIVE A GOOD REPRESENTATION TO US AS A BOARD AS TO THE DEPTH OF THE CONVERSATION.

THE NOTES REALLY DON'T DO IT JUSTICE.

>> TECH ANYTHING -- TECHNICALLY CAN WE DO THAT?

>> THAT'S WHAT I HEARD.

DIDN'T I HEAR THAT, ZACH?

>> KELLY CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, BUT IT IS A HEARING AND YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO SPEAK.

>> IS THAT RIGHT OR WRONG?

>> I THINK CHERYL MADE A GOOD DESCRIPTION OF -- THIS IS HOW WE DO IT.

WE TYPICALLY DON'T PUT DETAIL IN THE NOTES BEYOND -- I THINK -- I WOULD HAVE TO LOOK BACK TO SEE IF WE NORMALLY PUT WHO SPEAKS FOR AND AGAINST.

I THINK OFTEN TIMES WE DO THAT AND WE CAN ADD THAT DETAIL IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT.

WE DO KEEP OUR MEETINGS WHERE PEOPLE CAN PULL THEM UP AND WATCH THEM AS WELL.

TYPICALLY -- I THINK CHERYL EXPLAINED IT WELL.

WE HAVEN'T HAD MEETINGS IN GREAT DETAIL IN THE MINUTES, BUT WE DO RECORD THE VOTE AND I THINK TYPICALLY WE RECORD WHO SPEAKS.

IF YOU WANT US TO ADD THAT DETAIL WE CAN DO THAT.

>> WHAT I THINK I AM HEARING IS WOULD IT BE OKAY IF CLINT WAS TO JOIN THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING AND SPEAK KIND OF REPRESENTING WHAT WE SAY IN ADDITION TO THE MINUTES.

CLINT, I THINK THAT'S WHAT I HEARD.

>> I GUESS MY QUESTION WOULD BE, ZACH ENCOURAGED US TO -- THE SECOND MEETING WAS GOING TO COME MAY THE 14TH AND WE CAN COME INTO THE PUBLIC HEARING ON THAT.

MY QUESTION WOULD BE IF I WAS TO COME IN AND SPEAK OR HAVE AN OPINION WOULD I BE AS A CITIZEN, OR WOULD I BE AS A PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSIONER?

>> IT WOULD BE HARD FOR YOU TO SPEAK NOT AS A PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSIONER.

IF YOU DO SPEAK WE WOULDN'T WANT MORE THAN A FORUM TO APPEAR.

THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN DISCUSS WITH US BETWEEN NOW AND THE NEXT MEETING HOW TO ACCOMPLISH THAT.

>> THANK YOU.

WE VOTED ON THE MINUTES, RIGHT?

>> YES.

[PLATS]

>> WE ARE READY FOR PLATS.

>> ZACH RAINBOW PLANNING SERVICE THERE'S ARE EIGHT PLATS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

THE STAFF IS RECOMMENDING APPROVAL WITH CONDITIONS.

THE FIRST ONE HERE IS FP-4118, ELM CREEK AT WYLIE, SECTION 2.

THIS IS SOUTH OF AMLIE ROAD.

THEY ARE ADDING 79 NEW RESIDENTIAL LOTS TO THE SECOND SECTION OF THE SUBDIVISION.

SLIDE.

THIS IS A PRELIMINARY PLAT-2220 -- >> ZACH FROZE FOR ME.

[00:15:01]

DID HE FREEZE FOR EVERYBODY ELSE?

>> I CAN'T HEAR HIM.

>> CAN Y'ALL HEAR ME?

>> YES.

>> GO AHEAD AND SLIDE, CHERYL.

>> WAIT.

WE COULDN'T HEAR YOU THAT WHOLE PLAT.

>> OKAY.

WELL, WYLIE CREEK AND THIS IS SOUTH OF WYLIE HIGH SCHOOL AND THEY ARE PLOTTING 79 NEW RESIDENTIAL LOTS IN THE SECOND SECTION OF THE SUBDIVISION.

THIS IS THE PRELIMINARY PLAT 2220 AND LOTS 1, 2 AND 3 AND BLOCK AOLDHAM LANE CHURCH OF CHRIST.

THIS IS SOUTH -- NORTH OF ARTISON LANE.

NEXT.

GO AHEAD, CHERYL.

OKAY.

FINAL PLAT IS 2420 SECTION 2, SOUTHRIDGE ADDITION.

THIS IS WEST OF 8384 AND SOUTH OF TOWN.

AND IT IS EAST OF MEMORIAL.

THEY ARE PLOTTING 50 NEW RESIDENTIAL LOTS IN WHAT I BELIEVE IS THE FINAL STAGE OF THIS SUBDIVISION.

NEXT IS MRP-2820, A REPLAT OF BOBCAT ADDITION LOTS 1 AND 2, BLOCK A.

IF YOU REMEMBER THERE IS A SECTION IN THE MIDDLE THERE OF SOUTH 23RD STREET THAT WAS RECENTLY ABANDONED.

THIS WILL COMPLETE THAT AND MAKE THESE TWO OR ONE SOLID LOT SO THE OWNER CAN SELL IT.

AND IT WILL FINALIZE THE CLOSURE.

NEXT THIS IS FRP-2920, THE ABILENE HOTEL AND CONVENTION CENTER PLAT TAKING SECTIONS OF A BLOCK AND A HALF.

AGAIN, THOROUGHFARES, ALLEY AND A PORTION OF I BELIEVE CYPRESS TO CEDAR THAT WAS ABANDONED.

UTILITIES HAVE BEEN MOVED, ADDRESSED AND THIS IS TO COMPLETE THAT CLOSURE AND PLAT A NEW LOT FOR THE NEW HOTEL AND CONVENTION CENTER.

NEXT, THIS IS PRELIMINARY PLAT-3020, SOUTH LAKE VILLAS ADDITION.

IT IS SKEWED HERE.

THIS IS NORTH OF CARRIAGE HILLS AND SOUTH OF SOUTH LAKE DRIVE.

THIS WAS ALSO REPLATED TO DO PATIO HOME LOTS.

IT IS GOING TO BE 35 NEW ONES.

THIS IS THE PRELIMINARY PLAT OF IT.

GO TO THE NEXT ONE, CHERYL, PLEASE.

THIS IS FP-3120.

THEY LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME.

THIS IS THE FINAL PLAT OF THAT.

THE WAY THE ORDINANCE IS WRITTEN, YOU CAN DO THE PRELIMINARY PLAT FIRST AND THEN DO THE FINAL PLAT.

THEY PROBABLY HAD A REASON FOR DOING IT THIS WAY.

WE TYPICALLY ALLOW THEM IF THEY WILL PLAT THE ENTIRE PARENT TRACKS TO JUST DO THE FINAL PLAT, SO I ASSUME THERE IS A REASON THEY DID IT IN BOTH STAGES.

THEY DO MEET THE CONDITIONS.

NEXT ONE.

NEXT SLIDE, CHERYL.

OKAY, AND THIS IS THE FINAL ONE.

MRP-3220.

THIS IS THE PARRAMORE SQUARE SUBDIVISION DEVELOPED AT NORTH 7TH JUST WEST OF DOWNTOWN.

THIS AS WELL WENT THROUGH A REZONING TO THE PDD TO MAKE THOSE LOTS ON THE WEST SIDE APPROVABLE AND SMALLER SO THAT HE CAN BUILD SIMILAR HOMES TO SELL OFF AS THE TWO OR THREE THAT HE HAS THERE ALREADY.

AND WITH THAT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> ZACH, YOU RECOMMENDED APPROVAL WITH CONDITIONS.

WHAT CONDITIONS ARE YOU -- >> SO, WITH THE COVID THING IT HAS BEEN HARD TO GET THEM REVIEWED AND GET THE ACTUAL HARD COPIES, ET CETERA.

MOST OF THEM ARE PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS, ROADS, INFRASTRUCTURE, ET CETERA.

SOME ARE JUST MINOR NOTES, COMMENTS THEY NEED TO ADDRESS AND CHANGE ON THE PLAT, BUT NOTHING MAJOR.

BASICALLY THE CONDITIONS ARE ADDRESS ALL OF THE CONDITIONS FROM THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW COMMITTEE.

AGAIN, NONE OF THEM ARE MAJOR.

IT IS JUST MINOR TWEAKS AND THINGS.

LIKE I SAID, IT IS HARD TO GET THE CAPE COPIES AND DIGITAL EVERYTHING.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE, BUT THOSE ARE THE CONDITIONS FOR MOST OF THEM.

>> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? THANK YOU.

I WILL GO AHEAD AND OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING.

ANYONE ON THE LINE WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO ANY OF THESE PLATS, PLEASE LET US KNOW, AND WE WILL HEAR FROM YOU.

[00:20:08]

I DON'T THINK I HEAR ANYONE.

>> THERE IS NO ONE.

>> OKAY.

I'M SORRY.

GO AHEAD?

>> THERE IS NO ONE.

>> OH, THERE IS NO ONE.

THANK YOU.

I WILL GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING.

ANY DISCUSSION OR A POSSIBLE MOTION?

>> MOVE TO APPROVE.

>> I HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE.

DO I HAVE A SECOND?

>> SECOND.

>> WE ARE READY TO VOTE.

>> WAIT.

BEFORE WE VOTE, IS ALEX STILL ON THE LINE? ON ZOOM?

>> YES.

>> OKAY.

I JUST DIDN'T SEE.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DIDN'T LOSE OUR FORUM.

>> DO YOU ALL WANT TO ROLL CALL US AND SAY OUR NAME AND YAY OR NAY.

>> WE CAN GO AHEAD AND I WILL GO THROUGH.

MR. BENAM?

>> YES.

>> MR. NUNEN?

>> YES.

>> REVEREND LANGFORD?
