[2(a) Discuss legislative priorities for the 87th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature. (Proposed presenter: City Attorney E. Joyce Iyamu and Karen Kennard) (Part 1 of 2)]

UM, DISCUSSION OF POSSIBLE ACTIONS, UH, ITEM NUMBER TWO, A DISCUSS THE LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES FOR THE 87TH REGULAR SESSION OF THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE PRESENTATION BY OUR CITY ATTORNEY.

YOU JOYCE.

YES.

GOOD EVENING.

MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

THIS ITEM IS BEING PRESENTED TO YOU FOR YOUR INITIAL CONSIDERATION, INCLUDES THE PROPOSED 2021 TYPES OF LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.

THE AGENDA ITSELF MAY BE PRESENTED OR ADOPTED LATER ON AT THE REGULAR MEETING.

THIS IS JUST AN INTRODUCTION TO THE SUBJECT TO PROVIDE YOU ALL WITH A PREVIEW, AS YOU ALL KNOW, THE 87 SESSION STARTED ABOUT A WEEK AGO AS YOU'LL SEE IN THE COVER MEN THOUGH, AS WELL AS IN THE AGENDA THAT THE CITY'S PROPOSED, UH, PRIORITIES AND THEY ARE LISTED, THEY INCLUDE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, POVERTY TAX REFORM, PUBLIC SAFETY, SPECIAL DISTRICTS, ANNEXATION, AND ROOT HOMES WITH THAT.

UH, I WILL GO AHEAD AND TURN OVER THE PRESENTATION TO THE CITY OF LEGISLATIVE CONSULTANT.

KAREN CANARD, AS YOU ALL MIGHT REMEMBER, PARENTS HAS BEEN A CONSULTANT

[00:05:01]

WITH THE CITY FOR A FEW YEARS.

SHE IS A PARTNER WITH GREENBERG TRAURIG AS, UH, AS A FORMER CITY ATTORNEY HERSELF AND A FORMER EMPLOYEE, UH, ATTORNEY FOR TEXAS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE.

WITH THAT, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO KANT.

THANK YOU, JOYCE, UH, MAYOR MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL.

UH, I'M JUST GOING TO GIVE YOU A VERY HIGH LEVEL PREVIEW OF WHAT'S GOING TO POTENTIALLY BE CONSIDERED IN THE STATE LEGISLATURE.

UH, THIS YEAR, UH, AS JOYCE MENTIONED, UH, MYSELF AND MY COLLEAGUES AT GREENBERG TRACK, WE'VE REPRESENTED THE CITY SINCE 2017 AND, UH, WE ARE REALLY PROUD AND HAPPY TO REPRESENT YOU AGAIN IN THIS 2021 LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

UH, AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, THE TEXAS CONSTITUTION IS VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT HOW THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE OPERATES, UH, UNDER OUR CONSTITUTION.

IT SAYS THAT THEY MEET EVERY TWO YEARS FOR 140 DAYS.

UH, AND SO THAT PROCESS STARTED AS DEAD LAST WEEK, UH, UNDER THE CONSTITUTION AS WELL.

UH, LEGISLATORS ARE ALLOWED TO START PRE-FILING BILLS AND THAT STARTED, UH, BACK IN NOVEMBER ON NOVEMBER 9TH, BILL PRE-FILING STARTED, UH, THEY HAVE FROM THE FIRST DAY OF THE SESSION STARTING, THEY HAVE 60 DAYS TO FILE BILLS.

AND SO THE BILL FILING DEADLINE WILL END ON MARCH 12TH, WHICH IS THE 60TH DAY AFTER THE SESSION STARTS AND THEN ASK THE HUNDRED AND 40TH DAY OF THE LEGISLATURE.

THIS SESSION IS MAY 28TH AND UNDER THE 140 DAY CALENDAR.

THAT INCLUDES HOLIDAY.

WE CAN, SO YOU COUNT 140 DAYS FROM JANUARY 12TH AND YOU GET TO MAY 28TH AND IT'S CALLED SINAI GOD AND IT'S LATIN FOR THE LATTER.

OKAY.

AND SO THE LAST DAY OF THE SESSION THIS YEAR IS MAY 28TH.

AND THEN AFTER THAT PERIOD, THE GOVERNOR WILL HAVE UNTIL JUNE 17TH TO EITHER VETO LEGISLATION THAT WAS PASSED OR ALLOW IT TO BECOME, UH, THE LAW WITHOUT HIS SIGNATURE.

AND THEN UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, MOST BILLS WOULD BECOME EFFECTIVE, UH, UH, 90 DAYS AFTER THAT, WHICH IN THIS CASE WOULD BE AUGUST THE 27TH, UNLESS THERE'S SOME PROVISIONS WHERE THE LEGISLATURE CAN, UH, THROUGH A THREE FORCE VOTE, UH, MAKE LEGISLATION EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

AND, AND THAT HAPPENS, UH, QUITE OFTEN, WHEREBY IF THEY HAVE A SUPER MAJORITY VOTE ON LEGISLATION, THE LEGISLATION BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

SO THAT'S JUST A GENERAL OVERVIEW OF THE PROCESS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

UH, WHAT WE'VE SEEN SO FAR IS, UH, FROM 2019 TO SO FAR UNDER A PRE-FILING IT AS OF FRIDAY OF LAST WEEK, UH, BETWEEN PRE-FILING AND FRIDAY OF LAST WEEK, THAT'S THE SELECT CYTRIC THREE 19 PERIOD, BUT THAT DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN THAT THERE WILL BE MORE STOPS.

THAT JUST MEANS THAT WE'RE THE PACE SO FAR.

UH, I DO THINK THAT MOST PEOPLE LEAVE PROBABLY, UH, LEGISLATION ADOPTED LEGISLATION, ESPECIALLY THAT IS STILL TO BE DETERMINED.

I WILL SAY THAT CITIES, THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION, WE'LL PROBABLY SEE SIMILAR CHALLENGES THAT THEY'VE SEEN IN THE LAST TWO SESSIONS.

AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE NEW TO THE COUNCIL, UH, CITIES UNFORTUNATELY SEEN SOME REALLY TOUGH CALENDARS IN THERE TO LIMIT AUTHORITY.

THE FORTIES PARENTS, WE ARE HAVING A HARD TIME HEARING YOU.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME DOWN? YES.

MUCH BETTER.

THANK YOU.

AND SO I WAS JUST SAYING THAT SIMILAR CHALLENGES, UH, IF WE'LL GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, WE'LL GO THROUGH WHAT THOSE CHALLENGES WILL LOOK LIKE AS WE GO THROUGH THIS SESSION.

SO ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THAT WE, UH, AT GT, UH, LOOK OUT FOR THE CITY OF MISSOURI CITY SPECIFICALLY, IS WE LOOK AT, UH, BILLS THAT RELATE TO ANNEXATION AND ATJ REFORM.

AND WE SPECIFICALLY FOCUS ON THAT FOR THE CITY OF MISSOURI CITY, BECAUSE YOU HAVE THOSE REALLY CRITICAL STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS IN YOUR CITY.

AND SO WE, WE REALLY TRACK ALL OF THE BILLS ARE ANY BILLS RELATED TO ANNEXATION, AND ETG J REFORM

[00:10:01]

TO MAKE SURE THAT NO LEGISLATION NEGATIVELY IMPACTS YOUR CURRENT AGREEMENTS.

SO THAT'S ALWAYS NUMBER ONE ON WHAT WE ARE TRACKING FOR YOU, AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO THAT THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

SO THE MOST AMERICAN ISSUES, AND YOU PROBABLY READ A LOT ABOUT THIS, THAT THE CITIES ARE PROBABLY GOING TO BE LOOKING AT, AND THAT WE HAVE SEEN BILLS FILED THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

FIRST BROAD CATEGORY OF WHAT'S REFERRED TO AS POLICE REFORM.

THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN ONE LARGE BILL, UH, OF REFORM IT'S REFERRED TO AS THE GEORGE FLOYD ACT AND, UH, YOUR POLICE DEPARTMENT AND YOUR POLICE CHIEF PROBABLY HAS ALREADY THROUGH HIS ASSOCIATION, THE POLICE SHEET'S ASSOCIATION TO LOOK AT IT.

BUT MOST OF THE BILLS THAT ARE COMING THROUGH THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION, WE'LL LOOK AT THINGS LIKE REQUIRING US TO HAVE CERTAIN TYPES OF POLICIES FOR THEIR DEPARTMENTS, POLICIES THAT REQUIRE THINGS LIKE OFFICERS BE REQUIRED TO INTERESTING IF THEY, YOU FORCE OR TO REPORT ON AUTHORIZED TO SUPPORTS, BUT ALSO JUST, UH, BILLS THAT ADDITIONAL TRAINING ALSO PROHIBIT THINGS LIKE CHARCOALS AND OTHER TYPES OF POLICE TACTICS, MAYBE THESE TYPES OF DEALS, LOTS OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS ALREADY, THOSE TYPES OF WALLS, THESE TYPES OF APARTMENTS, BUT THESE BILLS ARE INTENDED TO HAVE TYPES OF POLICIES CHAIN THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

YOU KEEP CUTTING OUT KAREN, THIS IS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER.

REALLY, IF YOU KEEP CUTTING OUT, LIKE YOU'RE LIKE IN A SPOTTY AREA, SORRY, I'M IN MY I'M IN MY OFFICE.

SO, UH, IT COULD BE BECAUSE OF THE WALLS IN MY OFFICE.

UH, MY I'M IN MY I'M IN MY, YOU KNOW, MY WORK OFFICE.

SO LET'S SEE IF I CAN HEAR, CAN HEAR ME STILL SOUNDS CHOPPY.

OKAY.

UH, LET ME SEE IF I CAN MOVE MY COMPUTER CLOSER TO THE WINDOW A LITTLE BIT.

IS THAT BETTER? IS THAT BETTER? YES.

YES, MA'AM OKAY.

I MOVED MY COMPUTER MORE TOWARDS MY OFFICE WINDOW.

SO, UH, ONE OF THE TWO BILLS THAT HAVE BEEN FILED THAT ARE PROBABLY GOING TO BE MOST CONCERNED ABOUT DECREASE MOST PEOPLE, YES.

ANY TYPE OF DECREASE AND POLICE FUNDING FROM FISCAL YEAR TO FISCAL YEAR.

UM, SOME PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, IT'S, UM, UM, YOU KNOW, WE SAW ECONOMY, UH, ACROSS THE BOARD, THE DEPARTMENT, AND SO A LOT OF PEOPLE, THE SECOND DECREASE IN POLICE FUNDING THAT'S YES.

YOUR AUDIO IS STILL KEEPS CUTTING OUT IF YOU WANT, YOU CAN CALL WITH YOUR CELL PHONE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, I'M ON MY COMPUTER AT MY OFFICE.

LET ME SEE IF I CAN CALL IT MY CELL PHONE.

YEAH.

I'M, IT'S STILL IN MY OFFICE, SO IT MAY STILL BE THE SAME THING.

OKAY.

HOLD ON A SEC.

CAN YOU THE PHONE NUMBER, UM, IS IT IN THE EMAIL YOU SENT ME? YES.

MA'AM IT SHOULDN'T BE ON, WELL, WE GET, UH, UH, RESOLVED.

CAN WE MOVE ONTO THE NEXT ITEM? DO I NEED A MOTION? SO LET'S GO

[2(b) Presentation on the Watershed Master Plan Update. (Proposed presenter: Director of Public Works Shashi Kumar and Assistant City Engineer Jeremy Davis)]

TO ITEM TWO B UNTIL WE'LL COME BACK.

KAREN PRESERVATION OF THE WATERSHED MASTER PLAN UPDATE.

UH, WE HAVE OUR DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS AND JEREMY DAVIS.

YES, SIR.

ONE OF THE UPDATING THE DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN IS ONE OF THE STRATEGIES THAT IS FUNDED THROUGH THE FISCAL YEAR 20 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM.

UH, THE CITY

[00:15:01]

COUNCIL AUTHORIZED A CONTRACT, UH, IN APRIL LAST YEAR, UH, TO, UH, FOR THIS INITIATIVE.

UH, TWO THINGS THAT THE COUNCIL EMPHASIZED DURING THE AUTHORIZATION WAS THAT THEY WANTED A MID-LEVEL PROJECT UPDATE ON WHERE WE ARE AND, UH, KIND OF THE, UH, PROGRESS REPORTS, SO TO SPEAK ON THE PROJECTS.

SO WE'RE HERE TO GIVE THAT TODAY AND ALSO WHAT THE COUNCIL IS AND EMPHASIZED BACK THEN WAS TO SEEK CITIZENS AND STAKEHOLDERS INPUT AS PART OF THIS UPDATE PROCESS.

JEREMY DAVIS, WHO'S MY CO PRESENTER HERE, THE ASSISTANT CITY ENGINEER.

AND HE IS LEADING THIS PROJECT ALONG WITH THE CONSULTANT TEAM FROM WALTER P. MOORE AND FREESE AND NICHOLS.

UH, JUST LIKE, AS YOU KNOW, AS YOU ALL MAY KNOW THAT, UH, WE ARE DIFFERENT WHEN IT COMES TO UTILITIES HERE IN THE CITY, BECAUSE OF THE MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICTS.

WE'RE ALSO VERY DIFFERENT HERE IN THE CITY WHEN IT COMES TO DRAINAGE.

UH, THE REASON PRIMARILY IS A LOT OF ENTITIES SHARE DRAINAGE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES CITY HAS SOME ROLE TO PLAY.

SO DOES THE DRAINAGE DISTRICTS FOR PENN COUNTY AND HARRIS COUNTY, THE LEVEE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICTS, I'LL JUST OVER TO JEREMY AND HIS TEAM.

UH, WHAT THEY WILL COVER TODAY IS WHAT WERE THE MAJOR GOALS IDENTIFIED FOR THIS UPDATE, WHERE WE ARE NOW, AND WHAT'S OUR PATH MOVING FORWARD.

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, SOLICIT ANY FEEDBACK FROM THIS COUNCIL.

AS WE TRY TO WRAP THIS PROJECT UP, UH, JEREMY, THIS IS BACK TO YOU AND I WILL BE THERE AT THE END TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL MAY HAVE.

THANK YOU, FASHION.

UH, GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

UH, TODAY WE WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT AN UPDATE ON THE PROGRESS OF OUR ONGOING DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN UPDATE.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO AS SASHI SAID, UH, THIS UPDATE WAS ORIGINALLY PRESENTED TO COUNCIL LAST YEAR, UH, AFTER WE SELECTED OUR CONSULTANTS.

UM, SINCE NOW WE HAVE SOME NEW MEMBERS IN COUNCIL I'D LIKE TO GO OVER, UH, SOME OF THE MAJOR GOALS OF THIS UPDATE AND PROVIDE SOME BACKGROUND INFORMATION.

SO, UH, FOR THIS UPDATE, WE HAVE FIVE GOALS HERE, UNDERSTANDING THE CITY'S ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES, UH, COMPLIMENTING OTHER ONGOING STUDIES, UH, FOR BEING COUNTIES CURRENTLY UPDATING THEIR MASTER PLAN AS WELL.

UH, HIGH-LEVEL UPDATE OF WATERSHED MASTER PLANS EVALUATING THE ATLAS 14 CRITERIA AND THE, THIS BACKWATER IMPACTS AND INUNDATION MAPPING NEXT SLIDE.

SO HERE'S A BASIC TIMELINE OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND A BASIC SCHEDULE OF OUR PROGRESS.

SO ON THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2020, UH, WE HAD OUR CONSULTANT SELECTION AND WE CHOSE WALTER MOORE AND FREEZED NICHOLS.

UH, THEY'RE ALSO THE TEAM THAT'S PERFORMING THE UPDATE FOR, UH, FORT BEND COUNTY.

UH, THE CONTRACT WAS AUTHORIZED BY COUNCIL IN APRIL 20 OF 2020.

UH, THE FIRST PART OF OUR UPDATE UNDERSTANDING THE CITY'S ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES IS A HUNDRED PERCENT COMPLETE.

UH, WE HELD A WORKSHOP ON AUGUST 25TH OF 2020, UH, WITH SOME OF OUR STIFF STAKEHOLDERS SUCH AS THE MUD DISTRICTS AND THE LIDS.

UH, THE OTHER PORTION OF THIS UPDATE, THE MASTER PLAN ASSESSMENT IS A HUNDRED PERCENT COMPLETE.

UH, THE HIGH LEVEL UPDATE OF OUR WATERSHED MASTER PLAN IS CURRENTLY ONGOING.

WE'RE 75% COMPLETE.

UH, THE BRAZOS BACKWATER IMPACTS AND INUNDATION MAPPING IS STILL ONGOING AND WE'RE 45% COMPLETE AND EVALUATING THE ATLAS 14 CRITERIA, UH, WERE EXPECTED TO COMPLETE THAT IN FEBRUARY OF 2021.

SO THEY EXPECT TO COMPLETION OF THIS STUDY IS, UH, JUNE 30TH OF 2021.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO NOW I'M GOING TO GO OVER, UH, THE ROLES OR RESPONSIBILITIES NEXT SLIDE.

SO AS A PART OF THIS STUDY, WE WANTED TO FOCUS ON THE CITY'S ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES, UH, AND INCLUDING OUR RESPONSIBILITIES DURING FLOODS.

UH, THESE ARE SOME PICTURES FROM HARVEY, UH, WHEN THERE WAS SOME HIGH WATER RESCUES.

UM, SO UNDER THE CITY'S EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER OR EOC, WE MANAGE STREET CLOSURES, POTENTIAL HIGH WATER RESCUES, UH, COORDINATE RESOURCE REQUESTS AND, UH, WORK ON COMMUNICATION AND OUTREACH.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO, UH, ANOTHER MAJOR PART OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE EXACTLY WHERE THE CITY DIRECTLY MAINTAINS DRAINAGE AND WHO MAINTAINS DRAINAGE IN THE OTHER AREAS OF THE CITY.

SO IN THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR CITY, THE DRAINAGE ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES LIE WITH THE MUDS OR LIDS FOR THAT AREA.

SO ON THIS MAP, WE SHOW WHERE THE CITY DIRECTLY HAS A ROLE.

UH, SO THAT'S EVERYWHERE IN BLUE, UH, EVERYWHERE THAT'S NOT IN BLUE IS, UH, IS THE MUD OR THE LIDS FOR THAT AREA.

NEXT SLIDE.

[00:20:02]

SO EVEN THOUGH THE CITY DOES NOT DIRECTLY MAINTAIN THE DRAINAGE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE CITY, UH, DURING A DISASTER RESPONSE SCENARIO, MISSOURI CITY PLAYS THE ROLE OF COLLECTING RESOURCE REQUESTS FROM EACH OF THE MUDS AND LIDS.

SO REOC HAS BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR COMMUNICATING THOSE NEEDS UP THE CHAIN, UH, TO THE COUNTY'S EMERGENCY CENTER.

AND THIS IS JUST A GRAPHIC SHOWING THE PROGRESSION FROM THE MINES TO THE CITY AND THE COUNTY.

AND SO ON NEXT SLIDE.

SO TO GAIN EVEN MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES, WE ALSO REACHED OUT TO EVERY MUD AND LEAD WITHIN MISSOURI CITY AND OUR ETJ, UH, ON AUGUST OF 2020.

SO AT THIS MEETING, WE ALSO HAD AN ATTENDANCE FROM BOTH FORT BEND COUNTY DRAINAGE DISTRICT AND THE HARRIS COUNTY FLOOD CONTROL.

UH, IN ADDITION TO THIS MEETING, UH, WE ASKED ALL OF THE ENTITIES THAT, THAT, UH, PARTICIPATED TO COMPLETE A ONE PAGE QUESTIONNAIRE THAT PROVIDED US WITH MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT THE INNER WORKINGS OF THESE ENTITIES.

UH, THE RESPONSES WERE COLLECTED BY OUR CONSULTANT AND THE TABULATION OF THE RESPONSES ARE SHOWN HERE ON THIS CHART.

AND SO HERE, YOU'LL SEE THE MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICTS AND THE LEVEE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS IN THIS GRAPHIC, NEXT SLIDE.

SO, UH, FROM OUR RESPONSES, UH, HERE'S SOME OF THE INFORMATION WE RECEIVED.

SO, UH, WHEN IT COMES TO THE, SO BASICALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THE INFORMATION, UH, IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THIS UPDATE, UH, EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLANS FROM, UH, UTILITY, UH, SORRY, MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICTS, UH, WORK COLLECTED EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS FROM LEVY IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS OR LIDS, UH, IN SEVEN DRAINAGE MASTER PLANS AND SIX HYDRAULIC AND HYDRO HYDROLOGIC MODELS, OR H AND H MODELS.

NEXT SLIDE, AFTER PERFORMING OUR RESEARCH, UH, THE TEAM DETERMINED THAT, UH, MUDS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PLANNING, PERMITTING, AND MAINTENANCE WITHIN THEIR AREAS.

UH, THEY MAINTAIN MOST OF OUR LOCAL DRAINAGE SYSTEMS. THAT'S OUR INLETS, OUR STORM SEWERS, OUR DRAINAGE DISHES, OUR DETENTION PONDS, AND MOST OF THEM DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS FOR LEVY IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS.

UH, THEIR ROLES ARE TO RECLAIM THE HAZARDOUS FLOODPLAIN LAND FOR DEVELOPMENT CONSTRUCT AND MAINTAIN FLOOD PROTECTION, LEVIES, MAINTAIN PUMP STATIONS AND OPPORTUNITY STRUCTURES, AND DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT AN EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO THE NEXT STEP IN THIS PROCESS AFTER RECEIVING THE FEEDBACK FROM OUR MUDS AND LIDS WAS TO SET UP A WEB PAGE FOR ALL OF OUR RESIDENTS TO INPUT ANY DRAINAGE CONCERNS THAT THEY HAVE NOTICED IN THEIR LOCAL NEIGHBORHOOD.

SO WE CURRENTLY HAVE THIS WEBPAGE OPEN AND WE'LL KEEP IT OPEN UNTIL THE END OF FEBRUARY.

UH, SO WITH THIS INFORMATION, WE WOULD LIKE TO USE IT AS FEEDBACK TO HELP US IN BETTER ADDRESSING THESE CONCERNS MOVING FORWARD, UH, IN THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY AND, UH, THIS, THIS WEBPAGE RIGHT HERE, THE EASIEST WAY TO REACH IT IS, UH, JUST GOOGLE WATERSHED, MASTER PLAN, UPDATE, MISSOURI CITY.

UM, OR WE CAN ALSO HAVE A LINK ADDED, UH, I GUESS TO THE NOTES.

NEXT SLIDE.

UH, SO NOW I WILL NOW HAND THE PRESENTATION OVER TO, UH, ONE OF OUR CONSULTANTS FOR THIS STUDY.

UM, FIRST YOU'LL HEAR FROM ANDREA SALAZAR FROM WALTER P. MOORE ANDRESS.

YEAH.

THANK YOU, JEREMY.

I WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THE HIGH LEVELS OF DATES OF THE WATERSHEDS FIRST.

SO THIS IS LIGHT SHOWS, THE 11 WATERSHEDS WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS AND THE ATJ IN THESE TRAILERS.

MUST'VE BEEN AN UPDATE WITH TWO X.

WE TOOK EXISTING MODELS DEVELOPED SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND INCORPORATED HIGH LEVEL UPDATES AS NEEDED EXAMPLES.

EXAMPLES OF HIGH LEVEL UPDATES INCLUDES INCORPORATION OF RECENT DEVELOPMENT AND READINESS PROJECTS.

USE OF NEW MODELING METHODS RECENTLY ADOPTED BY FOUR COUNTY AND HARRIS COUNTY AND INCLUSION OF NEW RAINFALL DATA.

FOR EXAMPLE, WE ARE ACCOUNTING FOR THE FACT THAT THE A HUNDRED YEAR RAINFALL INCREASED FOR APPROXIMATELY 13 INCHES TO ABOUT 17 INCHES.

NEXT IS LIGHT.

ONE OF THE PRODUCTS OF THIS MODEL EXERCISE IS THE CREATION OF INUNDATION MAPPING FOR SEVERAL RAINFALL AS SCENARIOS.

SO WHAT WE ARE DOING IS ANALYZING, UM, DIFFERENT SCENARIOS THAT RANGE FROM 40 INCHES IN ONE HOUR TO A MULTI-DAY STORM, LIKE THE ONE WE SAW DURING HURRICANE HARVEY AND THE EACH SCENARIO PRODUCES DIFFERENT INUNDATION MAPPING, WHICH AN INUNDATION MAP IS A PRODUCT THAT REFLECTS THE AREAS THAT ARE SUBJECT FALLING, UH, DURING A STORM EVENT.

SO THE CITY

[00:25:01]

AND THE EMERGENCY OPERATION CENTERS STOP, WE HAVE INFORMATION TO POTENTIAL FALLING CONDITIONS FOR THESE VARIOUS SCENARIOS THAT WE MODEL.

AND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE GRAPHIC, YOU WILL SEE KIND OF THE PROCESS THAT HOW THIS INFORMATION IS GOING TO BE USED.

THERE IS GOING TO BE AN INUNDATION MAP LIBRARY, ONE FOR EACH SCENARIO THAT WILL REFLECT DIFFERENT CONDITIONS OF STORMS. THEN THAT LIBRARY IS GOING TO BE AVAILABLE FOR CITY TO DETERMINING WHAT IS AN AREA THAT BEST MATCHES THE RAINFALL THAT IS BEING FORECASTED.

AND WITH TH WITH THAT INFORMATION LIKE WIDER ELEVATION DEPTH AS WIDER, THEY, NEW ADDITION EXTENTS AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS CAN BE USED TO FACILITATE EMERGENCY CONDITIONS AS, UM, JEREMY PRESENTED AT THE BEGINNING.

THINGS LIKE HIGH WATER RESCUES ON CITY CLOSERS ARE PART OF THE CITY'S RESPONSIBILITIES, AND THIS INFORMATION CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY THOSE AREAS OF CONCERN.

NEXT SLIDE.

IN ADDITION TO THOSE HIGH LEVEL HIGH LEVEL UPDATES, UH, WE ARE DOING ADDITIONAL WORK INTO SPECIFIC WATERSHEDS.

ONE IS THE WILLOW WATERHOLE WATERSHED IN WHICH, UM, WE ARE IN ADDITION TO UPDATE IN PREVIOUS STUDIES TO NEW CRITERIA.

UM, WE ARE LOOKING AT THE SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR REGIONAL DETENTION PONDS THAT ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BEING BUILT BY THE CITY.

SO OUR MODEL EXERCISES ARE DEFINING THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS AND WILL BE NO PROVIDING DIRECTIVE ON, ON THE DESIGN THAT THE CITY, UM, NEEDS TO PURSUE AS A DESIGN MOVE MOVE FORWARD.

NEXT IS LIGHT THE SECOND WATER IN WHICH WE ARE DOING, UM, ADDITIONAL WORK IS CANGIALOSI DITCH IN, IN CANGIALOSI DITCH.

UH, THERE IS A PORTION OF THIS CHANNEL THAT IS PROPOSED TO BE IMPROVED.

IT'S ABOUT 4,400 LINEAR FEET OF CHINA THAT ARE PROPOSED TO BE WIDENED ON OUR MODELING EXERCISE IS PROPOSING A SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATION OF WHAT NEEDS TO BE INCORPORATED IN THE DESIGN TO ACHIEVE THE GOALS OF A INITIALLY PROPOSED IN THE INITIAL STUDIES FOR THIS WATERSHED.

NEXT SLIDE, THE NEXT STEP, THE NEXT NEXT TASK IS THE BRUSSELS MAGUIRE IMPACT.

AND THAT, THAT IS A TASK THAT THE WORD PARTNER PRESENT EQUALS IS IN CHARGE.

SO I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO HECTOR ROMANS.

THANK YOU, ANDREA.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

AS WE HAVE WITNESSED SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS, THERE ARE AREAS WITH THEM, SYRIAN CITIES THAT ARE VERY SUSCEPTIBLE TO FLOODING FROM THE BRAZOS RIVER.

AS PART OF THIS STUDY, WE ARE LOOKING AT TWO SCENARIOS.

WE HAVE A BETTER PICTURE OF HOW THE BRUSSELS RIVER IMPACTS THE CITY.

THIS IS GOING TO PROVIDE VERY VALUABLE INFORMATION DURING FUTURE FLOODS.

THE FIRST SCENARIO CORRESPONDS TO SUNDAY CONDITIONS WHERE THERE IS NO RAINFALL WITHIN THE CITY, BUT A LARGE FLOOD MAY BE COMING DOWN THE BRUSSELS SWEETER.

THIS IS SIMILAR TO WHAT HAPPENED DURING MEMORIAL DAY 2016.

FOR THIS CONDITION.

WE ARE ESTABLISHING WATER LEVELS AT FIVE KEY LOCATIONS THAT ARE SHOWN IN THE MAP, AND WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING THIS FOR VARIOUS STAGES IN THE RIVER AT THE RICHMOND GAGE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE, IN ADDITION EXTENTS, WHERE A WATER SURFACE ELEVATION WHEN RICHMOND HITS A STAGE 50.

SO YOU CAN SEE THE AREAS THAT ARE IMPACTED WITHIN THE CITY, AND YOU CAN EVEN CLICK ON THE VARIOUS LOCATIONS AND YOU CAN GET A VALID FOR THE WATER SURFACE ELEVATION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE FOR THE SAME CONDITIONS THAT THE RICHMOND GAUGE, EXCEPT THAT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ALLOWS US TO KNOW HOW DEEP THE WATER IS AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS ACROSS THE CITY.

THE FIRST STEP IN THE, AND THIS PROCESS HAS ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED, AND WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF COMPLETING STEP TWO THAT I'M GOING TO SHOW NEXT, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THE SECOND SCENARIO CORRESPONDS TO WHEN A LOCAL STORM EVENT IS HAPPENING AT THE SAME TIME AS THE FLOOD AND THE BREAST.

SO STREAMER, LIKE WHAT HAPPENED DURING HARVEY, THIS IS WHAT WE CALL A COINCIDENCE RAINFALL EVENT AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO HAVE MORE SEVERE, SEVERE IMPACTS.

WE WILL BE EVALUATING DIFFERENT CONDITIONS ON THE BRAZOS RIVER, COMBINED WITH DIFFERENT RAINFALL INTENSITIES THAT WILL GENERATE A LIBRARY OF INUNDATION MAPS THAT CAN BE USED FOR EMERGENCIES.

SO WE CAN IDENTIFY THE AREAS THAT ARE VULNERABLE TO FLOODING OR THE VARIOUS CONDITIONS.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

THIS TABLE SUMMARIZES THE RIVER STAGES AND RAINFALL INTENSITIES THAT WE'LL BE USING WHEN GENERATING THIS INUNDATION MAPS.

AND ALL OF THESE MAPS ARE GOING TO LOOK SIMILAR TO WHAT I SHOWED IN THE PREVIOUS SLIDES.

AND I'LL TURN IT OVER TO JEREMY.

[00:30:03]

THANK YOU, HECTOR AND ANDRESS.

UM, I GUESS WE CAN MOVE TO THE LAST SLIDE.

SO, UM, WE'D LIKE TO OPEN IT UP FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

IF ANYBODY FROM COUNCIL HAS ANY QUESTIONS THAT WE'RE OPEN TO, UH, ANSWER THEM, ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? I DO COUNCIL MEMBER MARULA SPEAKING, UH, JEREMY OR SASHI.

UM, WE, WE TALKED ABOUT THE LINK TO GET ACCESS TO THIS, AND IT WAS, UH, YOU KNOW, A MATTER OF GOOGLING, BUT, UM, WOULD WE ALSO WANT TO MAYBE MAKE THAT ACCESS AVAILABLE THROUGH LIKE OUR MISSOURI CITY WEBSITE AND OUR MISSOURI CITY EMERGENCY, UM, YOU KNOW, OTHER THAN GOOGLING SOMETHING MORE OF A HOT BUTTON, UM, COUNCIL MEMBER, JEREMY, FIND ME ANSWERED THIS QUESTION OR ASK FOR CLARIFICATION COUNCILOR MEMBER YOU'RE REFERRING TO THE FACT THAT WE PROVIDE A LINK TO THE CITIZENS TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK, OR ARE YOU REFERRING TO YEAH.

EARLIER IN THE PRESENTATION? UM, AND I FORGET WHAT PAGE IT WAS.

THERE WAS A, UH, I DON'T KNOW IF WE CAN GO BACKWARDS.

OKAY.

JEREMY SAID THAT WE COULD GOOGLE THE WATERSHED, RIGHT.

UM, WE DO, WE CAN PROVIDE SOME EASY LINKS ON OUR WEBPAGE AND THEN PARTNER WITH OUR COMMUNICATIONS TO DO THE OUTREACH.

NOT ONLY HAVE WE PROVIDED THIS LINK ON THE WEBSITE, THEY'VE DONE SOME OUTREACH WHEN THEY GO TO THE HOA MEETINGS AND SO FORTH, UH, TO DRIVE THE MESSAGE TO THE CITIZENS, TO PROVIDE THE FEEDBACK, UH, WE WILL DO WHAT BEST WE CAN MOVING FURTHER TO SOLICIT THEIR FEEDBACK.

AND YES, THERE IS A LINK ON OUR WEBPAGE AND WE CAN MAKE THAT MORE READILY AVAILABLE TO CITIZENS TO PROVIDE THE FEEDBACK AS WELL.

YEAH.

PERFECT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? YEAH.

THIS WAS A COUNCILMAN EMORY.

I HAD A QUESTION, UH, YOU KNOW, ON THE, UH, CITIZENS BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK, UH, HOW ARE WE COMMUNICATING THIS, UH, TO THE, UH, CITIZENS THAT, UH, THEY'RE AWARE THAT THERE'S A, AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE THIS FEEDBACK ON SOME DRAINAGE CONCERNS THEY MIGHT HAVE? I KNOW IT SOUNDED LIKE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT MAYBE THROUGH THE H GO WAYS, BUT, UH, I THINK WE NEED, UH, UH, A WIDER, UH, UH, NET TO, UH, UH, CAST THROUGH TO OUR CITIZENS SO THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF, UH, WHAT THIS IS AND THE IMPORTANCE OF IT BY RECEIVING THEIR FEEDBACK.

THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER.

I'M GONNA, UH, ASK JEREMY TO ELABORATE ON WHAT I ALREADY EXPLAINED.

UH, JEREMY, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD OR DO YOU SEE ANY OTHER MEANS WHERE WE CAN IMPROVE OUR OUTREACH TO OUR CITIZENS? YEAH, THIS IS JEREMY.

SO, UM, WE'VE BEEN WORKING A LOT WITH THE COMMUNICATION STAFF.

UH, THEY PUT IT ON THEIR, UH, THEIR NEWSCAST AND THEY POSTED IT ON, UM, ON THEIR EMAIL BLAST.

UM, AND THEN, UH, I GUESS WE CAN CONTINUE TO WORK WITH COMMUNICATION AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT SOME OTHER WAY TO REACH OUT TO THE CITIZEN.

YEAH, THAT, THAT'S GREAT.

I GUESS THE OTHER THING IS REALLY TO, UH, ADD SOME, UH, UH, SOME DEPTH WHY IT'S IMPORTANT FOR OUR CITIZENS TO PROVIDE THIS FEEDBACK.

WE'LL CONTINUE.

THIS IS SHASHI KUMARA GAIN COUNCIL MEMBER.

WE'LL CONTINUE TO BUILD THAT.

I KNOW WE HAVE A DISTRICT COUNCIL MEETING COMING UP.

I BELIEVE IT'S DISTRICT B.

WE'LL TRY TO EMPHASIZE IN THOSE MEETINGS.

I BELIEVE I'M PRESENTING IN THAT MEETING AS WELL.

UH, WE'LL TRY TO EMPHASIZE AGAIN, UH, FOR THE RESIDENTS TO PROVIDE THEIR FEEDBACK.

IT'S BEEN A LITTLE CHALLENGING IN THIS WORSHIP MEETING WAR, BUT WE'LL DO ALL WE CAN AND EXPEDITE ALL THE AND EXPLORE ALL THE RESOURCES WE HAVE TO GET TO CITIZENS FEEDBACK.

THANK YOU.

HI, THIS IS STACY TELLS A MEMBER EMORY.

I JUST WANTED TO, TO, UH, FURTHER ADD THAT WE'VE SENT OUT A NEWS RELEASE.

WE'VE SENT OUT VIDEOS.

WE'VE SENT OUT LINKS TO THE WATERSHED STUDIES.

IT'S BEEN IN THE DIGITAL NEWSLETTER.

IT'S ALSO BEEN IN THE NEWSCAST, BUT WE ARE WORKING ON AN ADDITIONAL OUTREACH TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET AS MUCH FEEDBACK AS POSSIBLE.

AND ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT WE'RE TRYING TO MITIGATE IS THAT WHILE THERE'S INFORMATION ON THE CITY WEBSITE, THE LINK TO THE ACTUAL SURVEY IS NOT SOMETHING THAT THE CITY PRODUCED OR MANAGES.

SO WE'RE TRYING TO NOT HAVE CITIZENS HAVE TO GO THROUGH SO MANY PORTALS

[00:35:01]

TO GET TO THE STUDY, BUT WE'RE CONTINUING TO TRY TO PUSH AS MUCH INFORMATION OUT AS POSSIBLE.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, IF NOT, THANK YOU.

SHASHI RUINS, JEREMY DAVIS, ANDREA SALAZAR, AND HECTOR FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

KAREN IS READY, KAREN.

UH, I'M HERE.

OKAY.

UH,

[2(a) Discuss legislative priorities for the 87th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature. (Proposed presenter: City Attorney E. Joyce Iyamu and Karen Kennard) (Part 2 of 2)]

WE CAN GO BACK TO ITEM TWO A AND IF YOU WANT TO START WHERE YOU LEFT OFF.

YEAH, I'LL JUST, I'LL JUST FINISH UP QUICKLY.

UM, UH, THE NEXT ITEM THAT WE WERE EXPECTING TO SEE RELATE TO JUST, UM, WE'RE PROBABLY GONNA SEE A LOT OF BILLS AGAIN, THIS SESSION THAT WILL IMPACT THE HOME RULE AUTHORITY, AND WE'LL BE FOLLOWING THOSE THINGS RELATED TO LIMITING CITY'S AUTHORITY TO DRAFT THE ORDINANCES SPECIFICALLY ISSUES RELATED TO HOMELESSNESS.

UH, AND WE'LL BE FOLLOWING THAT CLOSELY.

UM, WE HOPE WE WON'T SEE IT, BUT AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, THERE WAS LEGISLATION LAST SESSION THAT, UH, INTRODUCED A, UH, UH, A REVENUE CAP.

AND SO THERE MAY BE ADDITIONAL, UH, LEGISLATION THIS SESSION TO LIMIT CITY'S AUTHORITY TO GENERATE REVENUE, UH, MAYBE EXPAND THE CURRENT, UH, REVENUE CAP.

AND SO WE WILL DEFINITELY BE WATCHING THAT AGAIN, UH, TO, TO TRY TO ENSURE THAT THERE AREN'T ADDITIONAL OF LIMITATIONS PLACED ON CITY'S AUTHORITY TO GENERATE REVENUE FOR LOCAL NEEDS.

UH, THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT, YOU KNOW, CITIES ALL ALREADY DEAL WITH IN THE PUBLIC SAFETY SPACE WITH DISEASE PRESUMPTION.

UH, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT POTENTIALLY COMING, UH, THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION IS, UH, LOTS OF LEGISLATION RELATED TO CREATING A, UH, PRESUMPTION OF, OF, OF COVID AS A DISEASE, NOT ONLY IN THE PUBLIC SAFETY, UH, UH, ARENA, BUT FOR ALL EMPLOYEES.

AND SO THERE, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF BILLS OUT THERE SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO PUBLIC SAFETY EMPLOYEES.

AND LET ME JUST SAY WE WOULD NOT OPPOSE ANY OF THAT, BECAUSE LIKE I SAID, THAT'S, UH, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT CITIES ALREADY DEAL WITH IN RELATIONS TO POLICE AND FARA AND THOSE KIND OF DISEASE PRESUMPTION, BUT THE POTENTIAL TO EXPAND THAT, UM, TO ALL EMPLOYEES AND THE FINANCIAL, UM, IMPLICATIONS THAT THAT COULD POTENTIALLY HAVE, UH, ON CITIES, UH, TO, TO MAKE A PRESUMPTION, UH, FOR THAT.

AND THEN FINALLY, UH, THERE'VE BEEN SEVERAL BILLS.

I THINK WE TALKED ABOUT THIS, UH, WHEN WE DID OUR WRAP-UP WITH THE CITY, UH, AT THE END OF THE 2019 LEGISLATIVE SESSION, UH, THE BILLS HAVE ALREADY BEEN PASSED.

UH, THERE IS LEGISLATION THAT WOULD PROHIBIT CITIES FROM, UH, ENGAGING, UH, LOBBYISTS TO LOBBY ON BEHALF OF CITIES AT THE LEGISLATURE, OR THE BILL IS ALSO WITH PROHIBITS CITIES, FROM PAYING DUES TO ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE TEXAS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE OR OTHER ORGANIZATIONS LIKE YOUR LOCAL CHAMBER, IF THOSE ORGANIZATIONS HIRE LOBBYISTS AT THE STATE LEGISLATURE.

AND SO, UM, THOSE ARE KIND OF REAL HIGH LEVEL, UM, UH, ISSUES THAT WE SEE COMING THERE HAVE BEEN BILLS FILED.

WE THINK THERE WILL BE OTHER BILLS FILED UNDER THOSE KINDS OF SIX BROAD TOPICS.

AND I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT ANYBODY WILL HAVE, AS SAID, UH, YOUR PROGRAM KINDA ENCOMPASSES A LOT OF THESE SIGNIFICANT ISSUES THAT WE SEE, UH, COMING UP DURING THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

AND WE ARE TRACKING THOSE, UM, EVERY WEEK.

UH, WE, WE STARTED THIS LAST FRIDAY.

WE SEND, UH, KIND OF A, UH, JUST A REAL HIGH-LEVEL REPORT, EACH CHOICE, UH, WITH, UH, THE BILLS THAT WE'RE TRACKING AND KIND OF AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE LEGISLATURE.

SO, UH, YOU SHOULD LOOK TO START RECEIVING THAT, UH, AGAIN, UH, THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

KAREN, THANK YOU.

I WOULD HAVE SOME GUYS, ONE MORE SLIDES, RIGHT? KAREN, CAN YOU JUST TALK ABOUT THAT GROUP HOMES? UH, YES.

UH, THE REPRESENTATIVE RENTAL FILE THAT BILL LAST SESSION HIT HAS ALREADY BEEN FILED AGAIN.

UH, IT IS HOUSE BILL ONE 49 AND LIKE LAST SESSION, IT WOULD BE A STUDY.

IT WOULD REQUIRE THE STATE TO STUDY THE

[00:40:01]

INTERPLAY OF LOCAL AND STATE REGULATIONS RELATED TO GROUP HOMES.

UH, LAST, UH, LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

WE, WE GOT A HEARING ON THE, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER BONEY AND, UH, UH, SOMEONE FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT CAME UP AND THEY TESTIFIED ON THE BILL WHEN IT WAS IN THE HOUSE.

UH, UNFORTUNATELY, UM, THERE IS A, UH, YOU KNOW, PRETTY SIGNIFICANT, UH, GROUP HOME, UH, LOBBY THAT FOR SOME REASON, DOESN'T EVEN LIKE A STUDY OF THE ISSUE.

AND SO WE WILL WORK IT AGAIN THIS YEAR.

IT WAS PRE-FILED ON THE VERY FIRST DAY OF PRE-FILING NOVEMBER, THE NINTH, UH, REPRESENTATIVE REEL FILED IT, UM, WITH COVID.

HOWEVER, UM, THINGS ARE A LOT MORE DIFFICULT, THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GUYS HAVE HEARD, BUT WE'VE ALREADY HAD ONE MEMBER FROM THE FIRST WEEK WHO HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID.

UH, IT'S BEEN PUBLICLY ANNOUNCED, SO I'M NOT SAYING ANYTHING OR SPEAKING OUT OF TURN.

HE WAS ONE OF THE MEMBERS WHO INTRODUCED THE SPEAKER.

HE HAD TESTED NEGATIVE ON THE DAY OF THE SESSION TO GO INTO THE CAPITOL.

AND THEN BEFORE HE WAS GOING TO GO HOME, HE TESTED AGAIN, AND THEN HE HAD TESTED POSITIVE.

AND SO IT'S NOT UNHEARD OF AS, AS MY LAW FIRM WORKS IN LOTS OF DIFFERENT STATES AROUND THE COUNTRY, WE'VE SEEN THIS.

AND, AND SO THE, UM, THE ABILITY TO GET OVER TO THE CAPITAL, THE ABILITY TO, UH, TALK TO OTHER LOBBYISTS IS VERY MUCH LIMITED THIS SESSION.

SO I'M NOT SURE THAT WHEN I TALK ABOUT, WHEN I TALKED ABOUT IN THE BEGINNING, EVEN THOUGH THERE'VE BEEN AT THIS PERIOD OF TIME, MORE BILLS FILED, THERE MAY NOT BE MORE BILLS HEARD.

THERE MAY NOT BE MORE BILLS, UH, PATH, BECAUSE COVID, I THINK IS GOING TO LIMIT JUST A WHOLE LOT OF THINGS THAT FROM PREVIOUS SESSIONS, WE HAD THE ABILITY TO JUST BE OVER THERE IN THE BUILDING, MIXING WITH PEOPLE AND JUST RUNNING INTO PEOPLE OVER THERE TO, TO TALK TO THEM ABOUT ISSUES.

SO THE BILL HAS BEEN FILED, UM, COMMITTEES HAVE NOT BEEN, UM, COMMITTEES HAVE NOT BEEN NAMED.

UH, SO WE DON'T KNOW WHAT COMMITTEE IT WOULD GO TO OR WHO WOULD BE ON THOSE COMMITTEES.

UM, THE MEMBERS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO GIVE THEIR COMMITTEE, UH, PREFERENCES UNTIL NEXT WEEK.

AND SO IT'S GOING TO BE A COUPLE OF WEEKS BEFORE WE EVEN GET COMMITTEES.

AND SO UNTIL WE GET THAT DONE, WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THE BILL IS GOING TO GO AND WHO WE NEED TO BE TALKING TO.

THANK YOU.

OKAY, GREAT.

WITH THAT, I WILL, UH, ASK YOU ALL TO MOVE ONTO THE NEXT SIDE OF THIS WILL ACTUALLY APPEAR ON YOUR REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING AGENDA AS WELL FOR FORMAL ACTION AND AUTHORIZATION.

THANK YOU.

[2(c) Discuss proposed Sienna MUD No. 1 Wastewater Reuse Agreement. (Presenter: Utilities Manager Todd Hoover) ]

ITEM NUMBER ONE, WASTE WATER.

WE USE AGREEMENTS.

HELLO, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

UH, THIS PRESENTATION IS COVERING THE OVERVIEW OF THE PROPOSED AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY AND SIENNA MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT.

NUMBER ONE REGARDING WASTEWATER REUSE NEXT LOT TO START A QUICK OVERVIEW OF TYPE ONE.

RECLAIMED WASTEWATER USES OUR RESIDENTIAL IRRIGATION PARKS, GOLF COURSES, IRRIGATION IRRIGATION OF FOOD CROPS, UH, TOILET FLUSHING AND REFILLING OF WATER BODIES.

FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE PONDS THAT WE COULD USE FOR FIRE SUPPRESSION.

NEXT LOT, THIS MAP SHOWS IN YELLOW, THE AREAS IN OUR CITY THAT USES PRIMARILY SURFACE WATER AND THE GREEN AREA OF THE MAP, OUR GROUNDWATER USERS AND THE BLUE DOTS ARE GROUNDWATER WELL PLANTS JUST TO GIVE YOU A REFERENCE.

AND THE RED AREA IS WHERE OUR SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT IS LOCATED.

NEXT SLIDE, THE CITY WILL BENEFIT, UH, BY THE REUSE OF TYPE ONE RECLAIMED WASTEWATER BY THE CONTINUATION OF OUR FORT BEN SUBSIDENCE DISTRICT MANDATES OF GROUND WATER REDUCTION OVER USE CREDITS UNTIL THE YEAR 2025.

AND YOU SEE THAT 30%, 60% WE'RE CURRENTLY AT 40% GROUNDWATER REDUCTION.

NEXT SLIDE SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT PHASE TWO EXPANSION,

[00:45:01]

UH, FROM 20 MILLION GALLONS PER DAY TO 20 MILLION GALLONS PER DAY IS NEAR COMPLETE.

AND OUR NEXT PHASE EXPANSION DESIGN WILL BEGIN SOON.

THEREAFTER.

NEXT SLOT GROUNDWATER REDUCTION MANDATES HAVE ASSOCIATED COSTS SUCH AS SURFACE WATER TREATMENT, PLANT OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE COSTS, CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT, PROJECT COST FOR EXPANDING THE TREATMENT CAPACITIES AT OUR SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT.

NEXT, THIS BRINGS US TO THE SALIENT POINTS FOR THIS EVENING.

THE CITY AND CNM MUNICIPAL DISTRICTS BEGAN A DISCUSSION ABOUT TYPE ONE WASTEWATER REUSE BACK IN THE YEAR 2015, THE ESTIMATED DIFFERENCE IN COST TO DESIGN AND BUILD A MEMBRANE BIOREACTOR ALSO KNOWN AS AN MBR TYPE WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT VERSUS A CONVENTIONAL TYPE WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT TO ACHIEVE THIS TYPE ONE REUSE TREATMENT WATER WAS APPROXIMATELY $2 MILLION.

UH, SIENNA HAD RELIED ON THE CITY TO PAY THIS DIFFERENCE IN COST FOR THE MORE ADVANCED DESIGN TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED TYPE ONE, REUSE WATER QUALITY.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TYPE ONE AND A TYPE TWO, A REUSE IS THAT A TYPE ONE IS MUCH CLEANER WATER QUALITY, AND IT REQUIRES THIS MEMBRANE FILTERING PROCESS WITHIN THE TREATMENT PLAN IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE TANGIBLE BENEFITS OF TYPE ONE RECLAIMED WATER USES THE CITY WOULD ALSO PROMOTE CONTINUING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP ALONG WITH PARTICIPANTS OF THE GROUNDWATER REDUCTION PLAN OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE THAT HAS BEEN USUALLY SUCCESSFUL FOR OUR CITY.

NEXT SPOT NEGOTIATIONS ON THE TERMS OF THE REUSE AGREEMENT HAVE TAKEN ABOUT TWO YEARS UNTIL FINALLY ON DECEMBER THE THIRD 2020, THE GRP OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE VOTED UNANIMOUSLY TO ACCEPT AN INVESTMENT CONCEPT.

THAT INCLUDES A PROFIT SHARE APPROACH.

NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

SO THIS IS, UH, WHAT THE GRP, UH, COMMITTEE'S RECOMMENDATION IS, IS THE INVESTMENT OF $2 MILLION TO SIENNA MUD ONE, THEN SIENNA MUD ONE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FUTURE INFRASTRUCTURE EXPENSES, WHICH THEY CALL PURPLE PIPE.

CNM HAD ONE WOULD ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR BILLING THE O AND M EXPENSES TO THE CUSTOMERS.

AND, UM, THERE WOULD BE A FIXED PROFIT SHARING VARIABLE.

NOW THE 50 50 PROFIT SHARING, IT COULD GO UP, IT COULD GO DOWN, THERE WOULD BE A, A FLOOR OF, OF 27 AND A HALF CENTS PER THOUSAND GALLONS OF WASTEWATER SALT.

AND THAT WOULD BE IN PERPETUITY.

UM, WE'RE WORKING ON, WE'VE ALREADY WRITTEN A DRAFT CONTRACT THAT WILL BE DISCUSSED AT THE NEXT COUNCIL MEETING, AND IT'S A CORE OF 40 YEARS.

UH, THE INVESTMENT WOULD BE, UH, RETURNED BACK TO THE CITY, UM, WITH A CHART THAT I HAVE ON THE NEXT PAGE AND ABOUT 30 YEARS.

AND THAT'S THE MINIMUM NEXT LOT.

SO HERE'S AN, I KNOW YOU JUST KIND OF HARD TO READ, BUT, UM, AT THE TOP IS HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW.

THAT'S THE $2 MILLION INVESTMENT, AND THEN THERE'S, UH, THERE WOULD BE A VARIABLE COST OF OPIUM AND THEN A FLUCTUATING WATER COSTS THAT WOULD BE ASSOCIATED.

AND THAT 27 AND A HALF CENT OF A 50 50 PROFIT SHARE BETWEEN CNM MUD ONE AND THE CITY, UM, COULD GO UP, BUT IT COULDN'T GO ANY LESS THAN THE 27 HALF CENTS PER THE AGREEMENT THAT WE'VE ALREADY WORKED ON.

SO, UM, WE'VE DRAFTED THAT AND TONIGHT THERE'S NO ACTION REQUESTED BY THE COUNCIL.

UM, THAT AUTHORIZATION FOR A REQUEST HAS BEEN PLACED ON THE NEXT COUNCIL AGENDA FOR FEBRUARY.

THE FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO ADD FINALLY THAT WE DO HAVE REPRESENTATIVES ON THE CALL FROM SIENNA AND WHO ARE ALSO OUR PARTNERS IN THE GROUNDWATER REDUCTION PLAN OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE.

THEREFORE I'D LIKE TO YIELD A FEW MINUTES TO CALL BALLS IF HE WOULD LIKE TO ADD ANYTHING TO THIS PRESENTATION, MR. BOWLES, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER? HEY, TODD, THIS IS RICH MALARA.

I DON'T KNOW THAT HE GOT THE ZOOM,

[00:50:01]

UH, INFO, UH, UH, TIMELY ENOUGH.

SO IF IT'S OKAY, I'D GO.

I'LL GO AHEAD AND SAY A FEW WORDS.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

YES, PLEASE.

SO THIS IS RICH MAHLER ON THE ATTORNEY FOR SIENNA MANUEL ONE.

I'M ALSO SEEING THE RESIDENT.

UM, I JUST WANT TO, UH, REITERATE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT TY HAD SAID EARLIER.

UH, FIRST, UM, YOU KNOW, THE, THE MISSOURI CITY GROUNDWATER CONVERSION PROJECT, WHICH HAS BEEN A CO-OP COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN THE ETJ, UH, COMMUNITIES, RIVERSTONE SIENNA, AND THE CITY, UH, HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL, UH, CONVERSIONS THAT HAS BEEN DONE IN OUR REGION.

AND I MEASURE SUCCESS BY THE COST TO THE CONSUMER.

UM, WE HAVE ONE OF THE LOWEST GROUNDWATER FEES, UH, GROUNDWATER PUBLISH FEES, UH, OF ANY OF THE, UH, CONVERTING ENTITIES IN OUR REGION.

AND THAT'S JUST A TESTAMENT TO THE HARD WORK OF THE FOLKS, THE CITY, UH, AND THE GRP COMMITTEE WHO ACQUITTED, UH, THE TIME AND EFFORT TO REALLY COME UP WITH A GOOD SOLUTION.

LONG-TERM, UH, THIS EFFLUENT REUSE, UH, AGREEMENT IS JUST ONE PIECE OF THAT, A MUCH LARGER PUZZLE.

UH, IT'S A WIN-WIN FOR EVERYBODY.

UH, IT SAVES ALL OF THE GRP PARTICIPANTS.

SO THE CITY RESIDENTS AND ADJ RESIDENTS SAVES EVERYBODY MONEY BY USING LESS SURFACE WATER, WHICH IS THE MOST COSTLY WATER YOU CAN USE.

UM, THERE ARE SOME REGULATORY CREDITS THAT, UH, THAT THE CITY AND THE GRP, UH, WILL RECEIVE BECAUSE OF, UH, THIS VERSION.

UH, AND THEN LONG-TERM, WE PROBABLY HAVE SOME, SOME LONG-TERM CAPITAL COSTS AND O AND M REDUCTIONS AT THE SURFACE WATER PLANT THAT AREN'T REALLY EVEN PART OF THE ANALYSIS.

UM, SO YOU KNOW, IT ALL AT ALL, IT'S, UH, IT'S A VERY, UH, POSITIVE INVESTMENT FOR, UH, FOR EVERYONE.

THE NUMBERS THAT ARE ON THE SCREEN, I THINK ARE VERY, VERY CONSERVATIVE THAT ASSUMES WE USE A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF REUSE.

I THINK THOSE NUMBERS WILL BE BETTER, BUT FOR PURPOSES OF THE EVALUATION, WE'VE GIVEN YOU A VERY CONSERVATIVE SET OF NUMBERS.

UM, AND I'D LIKE TO THANK TODD, UH, AND JOYCE AND SHASHI.

UH, WHO'VE WORKED WITH US ON THIS, UH, OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS, UH, TO COME TO WHAT I THINK IS VERY FAIR AND REASONABLE ARRANGEMENT ON THE RESPONSIBILITY ALLOCATION AND THE, UH, THE PROFIT SHARE.

AND WITH THAT, I'LL STOP TALKING AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, TODD AND RICH, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR NO QUESTIONS, AND

[2(d) Presentation on the Texas Department of Transportation proposed median improvements to F.M. 1092. (Proposed presenter: Director of Public Works Shashi Kumar) ]

WE'LL MOVE TO ITEM TWO D PRESENTATION IN TERMS OF DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PROPOSAL MEETING AND IMPROVEMENTS TO FM 10 92.

WE HAVE OUR DIRECTOR PROBABLY WORKSHOP SHEET TOMORROW, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

AGAIN, I'LL TAG TEAM, THIS PRESENTATION WITH MY CO PRESENTER, JEREMY HERE, UH, AS YOU ALL KNOW, FM 10 92 OR MORPHE ROAD IS ONE OF THE MAJOR, NOT SOUTH TECHSTAR ROADWAY CORRIDOR THAT GOES THROUGH THE CITY LIMITS.

IT ALSO SERVES OTHER JURISDICTIONS OVER THE YEARS.

AS YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THIS ROADWAY HAS TRANSFORMED MORE FROM A FOUR FORM PRO-MARKET ROADWAY TO A MAJOR MOVER OF TRAFFIC.

UH, THE LAST COUNT WE HAD, WE HAD ROUGHLY 40,000 VEHICLES USING THIS ROADWAY ON A DAILY BASIS.

AND THIS IS MORE ATTRIBUTES TO THE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS, SUCH AS RIVERSTONE SIENNA, AND A NUMBER OF OTHER PROJECTS IN THE PIPELINE.

UH, MOST PART OF THIS ROADMAP, CORY DOOR DOES NOT HAVE A MEDIAN BARRIER.

IF YOU MAY RECALL, A TEXAS PARKWAY WAS THAT WAS LIKE THIS DECADES AGO, AND TECHSTARS CAME AND DID WHAT THEY CALL THE MEDIAN IMPROVEMENTS, OR THE TECHNICAL NAME IS ACCESS MANAGEMENT IMPROVEMENTS.

AND THAT CONTRIBUTED TO REDUCING COLLISION AS WELL AS, UH, AIDING THE MOVEMENT OF, UH, TRAFFIC VOLUME THROUGH THIS MAJOR CORRIDOR TECHSTAR, UH, NOTIFIED THE CITY LATE, UH, IN DECEMBER OF LAST YEAR THAT THEY INTEND TO DO THE SAME THING FOR FM 10 92 AUTUMN OFF MURPHY ROAD THAT IS TO BUILD MEDIANS PART OF THEIR ACCESS MANAGEMENT INITIATIVES, UH, WHAT THE CITY DID.

UM, UH, THEY HOSTED A VIRTUAL MEETING, UH, UH, GIVEN THE COVID ENVIRONMENT.

UH, WE DID SOME OUTREACH WITH OUR COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENTS TO CITIZENS TO, UH, INFORM THEM OF THIS UPCOMING MEETING OR THIS VIRTUAL MEETING THAT WAS HOSTED BY TECHSTARS, WHICH WAS MORE AN INFORMATIVE NATURE.

UH, HOWEVER, WE DO REALIZE THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE GOT THE MESSAGE OR ATTENDED THIS MEETING.

UH, SINCE THEN WE'VE HAD SOME FEW, UH, CONCERNED BUSINESS OWNERS, AS WELL AS SOME, UH, RESIDENTS, I BELIEVE, UH, THAT HAVE CONTACTED THE COUNCIL MEMBERS IN ASKED FOR A BRIEFING

[00:55:01]

ON THIS PROJECT OR VOICE THEIR CONCERNS.

AND OBVIOUSLY, UH, WHAT TXDOT IS AIMING TO DO IS THERE ARE A NUMBER OF DRIVEWAYS.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF TURNING MOMENTS YOU'RE ON FM 10 92.

THEY'RE TRYING TO REDUCE THIS BUILD MEDIANS.

AND, UH, A, UH, THE, THE PRIMARY PURPOSE IS TO REDUCE COLLISIONS AS WELL AS IMPROVE THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC.

UH, THE CITY HAS REACHED OUT TO TECHSTARS EXPRESS, SOME CONCERNS THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION.

ALSO, WE HAVE REACHED OUT TO TECH START TO SEE IF WE CAN DO SOME MEDIUM LANDSCAPING HERE WITH OUR, WITH OUR PARTICIPATION WITH TECH START.

UH, AND, UH, THE PURPOSE OF TODAY'S PRESENTATION IS AGAIN, GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CITIZENS TO BE INFORMED ABOUT THIS UPCOMING IMPROVEMENTS OR PROJECT.

UH, GIVE A CHANCE FOR COUNCIL TO LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS.

UH, AND THEN AT THE SAME TIME, GET SOME FEEDBACK THAT WE CAN WORK WITH TECHSTARS IN THE COMING MONTHS.

AT THIS POINT, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO JEREMY DAVIS ASSISTANT CITY ENGINEER.

WE DO HAVE A SHORT VIDEO PRESENTATION, UH, AND, UH, WE'LL TAKE IT FROM THERE.

JEREMY, ARE YOU THERE? JEREMY? DO I HEAR YOU WELL, LET ME, CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES.

OH, SORRY.

SO, UM, AS SAUCY SAID, WITH THIS PRESENTATION, WE'RE GOING TO GO OVER, UH, THE CODE MEDIAN INSTALLATIONS BY TEXTILE, UH, FOR FMC 92.

SO HERE'S JUST SOME BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PROJECT.

UH, THE LENGTH IS GOING TO BE APPROXIMATELY 5.8 MILES.

IT GOES FROM A OR A US 59, AS SOME PEOPLE MIGHT KNOW IT, UH, TO STATE HIGHWAY SIX, UH, THE ESTIMATED CONSTRUCTION COST IS GOING TO BE $4 MILLION.

UH, THEY DON'T NEED TO REQUIRE ANY BRIDE AWAY THEY'RE WORKING WITHIN THE MEDIANS, UH, AND THE TIMELINE THEY, THEY ANTICIPATE TO START IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS A, UH, A GRAPHIC JUST SHOWING THE LENGTH OF THE PROJECT, AS YOU CAN SEE, IT GOES THROUGH BOTH STAFFORD AND MISSOURI CITY AND A LITTLE BIT OF HOUSTON, UH, NEXT SLIDE.

SO, UH, NOW WE THERE'S, UH, THERE WAS A PRERECORDED VIDEO AT THE VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING THAT TXDOT HELD ON DECEMBER 17TH.

SO WE TOOK THAT, UH, IT WAS, IT WAS ORIGINALLY ABOUT 11 MINUTE VIDEO.

WE CUT THAT DOWN TO A LITTLE LESS THAN FOUR MINUTES, AND, UH, WE'RE GONNA, UH, PRESENT THAT VIDEO RIGHT NOW.

UH, THERE SHOULD BE A GIMME ONE BEING ABLE TO CLICK, OKAY.

THE FM 10 92 PROJECT EXTENDS FOR A TOTAL OF 5.8 MILES ALONG FARM TO MARKET 10 92 FROM INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 69 TO STATE HIGHWAY SIX AND FORT VAN COUNTY.

THE PROPOSED FM 10 92 IMPROVEMENTS WOULD BE LOCATED WITHIN THE EXISTING 120 FOOT, RIGHT OF WAY.

MOST OF THE EXISTING PROJECT FACILITY IS A SIX LANE UNDIVIDED ROADWAY WITH A CONTINUOUS CENTER TURN LANE, NOTABLE EXCEPTIONS OCCUR ON EITHER END OR THE ROADWAY REACHES BOTH.

WHERE A MEDIAN THEN DIVIDES OPPOSING TRAFFIC.

IN ADDITION, WHERE FM 10 92 CROSSES UNDER US.

THE ROADWAY TRANSITIONS TO A FOUR-LANE DIVIDED ROADWAY WITH A CONTINUOUS MEDIAN UNTIL IT TRANSITIONS BACK INTO THE SAME SIX LANE UNDIVIDED ROADWAY TOWARD BOTH THE NORTH AND SOUTH LAND USE IN THE GENERAL AREA IS COMMERCIAL SURROUNDED BY SUBURBAN AREAS.

WHEN NOTABLE MAJOR TRAFFIC GENERATOR IS INDEPENDENCE PARK.

HOWEVER, THE ROADWAY ITSELF IS A BUSY COMMERCIAL CORRIDOR, DESPITE NOT HAVING MANY INDIVIDUAL MAJOR TRAFFIC GENERATORS.

ONE OF THE GOALS FOR THE PROJECT IS TO REDUCE CRASHES ALONG THE CORRIDOR REGARDING SAFETY.

THE PROJECT TEAM ANALYZED CRASH DATA FOR THE PROJECT CORRIDOR FOR THE YEARS, 2015 TO 2019 AS SHOWN ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THIS GRAPHIC.

THE CRASH RATE THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT LIMITS IS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE STATEWIDE AVERAGE.

THE MAJORITY OF CRASHES, ALL ALONG THE FM, 10 92 CORRIDOR ARE NEAR MAJOR INTERSECTIONS, DRIVEWAY DENSITY ALONG THE CORRIDOR EXCEEDS TYPICAL STANDARDS.

AND AS THE NUMBER OF DRIVEWAYS ALONG A CORRIDOR INCREASES.

SO DOES THE PROBABILITY OF A COLLISION SOME SECTIONS

[01:00:01]

OF FM 10 92 HAVE DRIVEWAY SPACING AS HIGH AS 72 DRIVEWAYS PER MILE.

THE PROPOSED INSTALLATION OF A RAISED MEDIAN WOULD LIMIT LEFT TURN OPPORTUNITIES AND THEREBY REDUCE SAFETY RISK ASSOCIATED WITH LEFT TURNING CARS CROSSING IN FRONT OF ONCOMING TRAFFIC.

MOST OF THE EXISTING FM 10 92 IN THE PROJECT AREA IS A SIX LANE UNDIVIDED ROADWAY WITH A CONTINUOUS CENTER TURN LANE.

NOTABLE EXCEPTIONS OCCUR ON EITHER END WHEN THE ROADWAY REACHES BOTH ICE 69 AND SH SIX, WHERE A MEDIAN THEN DIVIDES OPPOSING TRAFFIC.

ADDITIONALLY WE'RE FM 10 92 CROSSES UNDER US.

THE ROADWAY TRANSITIONS TO A FOUR-LANE DIVIDED ROADWAY WITH A CONTINUOUS MEDIAN UNTIL IT TRANSITIONS BACK INTO THE SAME SIX LANE UNDIVIDED ROADWAY TOWARD BOTH THE NORTH AND SOUTH.

ALTHOUGH WHAT IS SHOWN ARE CALLED TYPICAL SECTIONS, IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT IN SOME SECTIONS OF THE ROADWAY, THE SHOULDER AND DITCH TYPICAL SECTIONS VARY, HOWEVER, THESE VARIATIONS ARE NOT RELEVANT TO THE PROPOSED RAISED MEDIAN INSTALLATION.

THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDE CONSTRUCTING A RAISED MEDIAN ALONG FM 10 92 THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT AREA.

THIS INCLUDES UP TO 35 DESIGNATED SOUTHBOUND TURNING LANES FOR CROSS CONNECTING ROADWAY, ACCESS, IMPROVED ACCESS MANAGEMENT RESULTS IN REDUCED TRAFFIC DELAY IN CONGESTION, AS WELL AS IMPROVED ACCESS AND CIRCULATION FOR LOCAL PROPERTY OWNERS AND ROADWAY USERS.

THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS NEEDED TO ADDRESS ANTICIPATED TRAFFIC VOLUMES AS WELL AS EXISTING SAFETY ISSUES ON FM 10 92, BY PROVIDING THESE NEW TURNING LANES AT INTERSECTIONS THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT AREA, THE PROPOSED PROJECT WOULD BE FUNDED WITH A COMBINATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE FUNDS FOR A TOTAL OF APPROXIMATELY $4 MILLION.

IT IS SCHEDULED TO GO OUT FOR BID IN APRIL, 2021 SHASHI, IF YOU COULD PLEASE, UH, TURN ON THE, UH, THE FOLLOWUP SLIDES, PLEASE.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UM, UH, AFTER THE TECHSTOP MEETING, UM, I'M SORRY, THE, BEFORE OUR TECH MEETING ON THE 17TH, UH, THE CITY NOTIFIED THE RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES, UH, BY PARTNERING WITH OUR COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT, UH, JUST AS SHAKUHACHI SAID EARLIER.

UM, AND AFTER THE MEETING, WE CONTINUED TO RECEIVE, UH, SOME CONCERNS FROM, FROM DIFFERENT BUSINESSES.

SO, UH, IN RESPONSE TO THAT, UH, CITY STAFF HAS SCHEDULED AN ADDITIONAL MEETING WITH TXDOT ON FEBRUARY 1ST OF THIS YEAR.

SO, UM, IF ANY LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS AND RESIDENTS, UH, HAVE ANY FURTHER CONCERNS, PLEASE SUBMIT THEM TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS ENGINEERING AT MISSOURI CITY, TX.GOV, AND A CITY STAFF WILL ADDRESS THESE CONCERNS WITH TXDOT AT OUR FEBRUARY 1ST MEETING, NEXT SLIDE.

AND NOW WE'LL OPEN IT UP TO ANY QUESTIONS.

HEY MAN, THIS IS ANTHONY COUNCILMAN.

GO AHEAD.

WELL, YEAH, I HAD SEVERAL QUESTIONS.

UH, NUMBER ONE NOW, WHERE WILL, UH, THE, UH, THE PROJECT START IN STAFFORD ARE IN JEREMY? LET ME SEE IF I CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

COUNCIL MEMBERS, THE LIMITS OF THE PROJECT IS FROM HIGHWAY SIX, ALL THE WAY, EXTENDING NOT TO 59 AT THIS POINT, WE DON'T KNOW WHICH PART IT'LL START.

I MEAN, WHERE, WHICH WILL BE THE START LINE AND THE FINISHED LINE, BUT THE GENERAL LIMITS OF THE PROJECT HAS BEEN IN BETWEEN THE SOUTH SIDE MINT OF TITLE SIX AND THE NON SEGMENT OF THIS 59 AS THERE BEEN ANY DISCUSSIONS WITH STAFFORD AS TO THEIR, UH, UH, CONCERNS.

I'M SURE, UH, TEXSTAR IS REACHING OUT TO STANFORD, JUST LIKE THEY REACHED OUT TO OUR JURISDICTIONS TO GATHER THEIR CONCERNS, BUT, UH, UM, MISSOULA CITY HAS NOT SPECIFICALLY REACHED OUT TO STANFORD, BUT THAT I BELIEVE, UH, UH, TECH STOCK IS WORKING WITH STAFF AND JUST LIKE THEY'RE WORKING WITH MS. CP AS WELL.

OKAY, GO AHEAD THEN I'LL COME BACK WITH A COUPLE OTHER QUESTIONS.

GO AHEAD, COUNCIL MEMBER.

WELL, UH, THE ONE THING

[01:05:01]

THAT I, AND I HOPE THAT IT'S BEEN TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION IS RIGHT NOW, THERE'S, UH, SEVERAL, UH, UH, DEVELOPMENTS GOING ON ON 10 92, UH, THAT, UH, OUR RETAIL OR, UH, UH, UH, COMMERCIAL WHEN, UH, AND, UH, SOME, UH, RESIDENTIAL, UH, THAT'S IN PROGRESS.

SO I GUESS QUESTION IS, UH, WHAT IMPACT LED HAVE ON ANY OF THESE DEVELOPMENTS THAT ARE, THAT ARE SOME, ARE IN THE, UH, UH, THE CONSTRUCTION STAGE NOW, UH, SO THAT, UH, THEY WILL, UH, BE ABLE TO, UM, UH, PLAN FAR, UH, UH, TURN INS AND TURNOUTS INTO THEIR, UH, THEIR, UH, COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENTS.

UM, GREAT QUESTION, COUNCIL MEMBER.

AGAIN, THIS IS SHASHI, UM, JEREMY AND HIS TEAM, UH, HAVE REVIEWED THE PLANS FOR NEW DRIVERS THAT COME IN ON 10 92.

UH, YOU KNOW, WE DO HAVE SOME NEW DEVELOPMENT OR PROJECTS THAT ARE, UH, IN THE, UH, 10 92 FIFTH STREET CORRIDOR AREA.

UH, WE HAVE RELAYED THIS INFORMATION TO TECHSTARS IN THE COMING MONTHS.

WE'LL BE WORKING WITH THEM TO SEE HOW WE CAN, AGAIN, THE MAJOR EFFORT HERE IS TO CONSOLIDATE SO TO SPEAK THE DRIVEWAYS.

UH, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT NEW DEVELOPMENTS HAVE ACCESS INTO THEIR DEVELOPMENTS TO FM 10 92.

SO STAFF IS TAKING THIS INITIATIVE WITH TECHSTAR AND WE'LL BE WORKING WITH THEM IN THE COMING MONTHS.

YEAH, BECAUSE THAT'S, YEAH, THAT'S GOING TO BE CRITICAL TO SEVERAL OF THOSE, UH, THAT ARE, UH, UH, YOU KNOW, SOME ARE RETAIL COMMERCIAL, AND I BELIEVE ONE OF THEM IS LIKE A MIXED USE.

SO THERE'S SOME, UH, RESIDENTIAL INCLUDED IN THAT RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT.

SO, UH, SOMEHOW WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE, UH, INDIVIDUALS, THESE, UH, DEVELOPERS AND, UH, ARE, UH, ARE AWARE OF WHAT'S BEING, UH, CONSIDERED SO THAT THEY CAN ACCOMMODATE, UH, YOU KNOW, UM, WHATEVER'S NECESSARY TO, TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE PROPER ACCESS AND, AND, UH, EXIT, UH, INTO, UH, TO THEIR DEVELOPMENTS.

YES, SIR.

WE'RE DOING THAT.

THANK YOU.

WELL, SO ACTUALLY THIS IS COUNCIL MEMBER EDWARDS.

UM, I HAVE A QUESTION THAT'S KIND OF RELATED TO THE QUESTION COMES FROM , AS FAR AS THE CONCERN WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AND ALL THE BUSINESSES THAT WILL BE AFFECTED BY THIS PROJECT, HOW LONG DO YOU ACTUALLY ESTIMATE OR TEXTILE? DID THEY PROVIDE A, A TIMELINE OF THIS PROJECT ACTUALLY BEING COMPLETED? UM, GREAT QUESTION.

COUNCIL MEMBER.

I ALLOW JEREMY TO CHIME IN AT THIS POINT.

WE DO NOT KNOW THAT DETAILS.

AGAIN, IT'S WEIGHTED TO BE BID IN APRIL.

ONCE THAT INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE, WE WILL TRY TO MITIGATE THAT INFORMATION TO THE BUSINESSES AND SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO ALLEVIATE SOME CONCERNS.

BUT ONE THING IS LIKE ANY OTHER CONSTRUCTION BEFORE IT GETS BETTER AND GETS WORSE.

THAT'S KIND OF THE, UH, THE, UH, THING WITH ANY CONSTRUCTION PROJECT.

BUT I THINK AT THIS POINT WE DO NOT HAVE, UH, THE LENT OF THE CONSTRUCTION DURATION.

JEREMY, IF YOU DO ANYTHING, PLEASE ADD ON TO IF I MISSED ANYTHING.

YES, SHAWSHEE.

UH, SO WE DO HAVE AN ESTIMATE OF THE TIME, BUT, UH, NO, I SHOULD SAY, YOU KNOW, WITH CONSTRUCTION, UH, THINGS CAN CHANGE, BUT THEY'RE ESTIMATING IT TO BE ABOUT SEVEN MONTHS, BUT, UH, AND THAT'S FROM TXDOT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, SASHA.

THIS IS COUNCIL MEMBER RUELAS.

UH, TWO QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

UH, OR ACTUALLY ONE QUESTION I WANT TO REQUEST, UM, ARE THERE RENDERINGS OF THE PROPOSED TURN LANES AVAILABLE? DO THEY ALREADY HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT, WHERE THOSE TURN LANES WOULD BE? YES, SIR.

UH, THE CITY HAS OBTAINED THE RENDERINGS, UH, FROM TECHSTARS AND WE DO HAVE IT, IF THERE IS ANY CONCERN, BUSINESSES OR OWNERS, WE'RE WILLING TO WORK WITH THEM AND SHARE WITH THEM THE INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE.

SO WE TOOK AN ADDITIONAL STEP AND WE'RE PAYING THOSE FROM THE TECHSTAR OFFICE.

EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU.

AND THEN THE LAST, UH, REALLY TOWARDS THE END, THE CITY SECRETARY IS CAN WE HAVE A MEETING INVITE AND OUR CALENDAR FOR THE FEBRUARY ONE MEETING SO THAT WE CAN ALSO PARTICIPATE OR AT LEAST JIMMY, UH, PLEASE, UH, UH, ADD ON, WE CAN INVOLVE, UH, ANY BUSINESSES OR IS THIS MORE A TECHSTAR STAFF LEVEL MEETING? AND I'D LIKE FOR YOU TO ELABORATE ON THAT ONE, PLEASE.

YEAH.

SO THIS IS JEREMY.

SO THIS IS MORE OF A, A TECHNICAL, A STAFF LEVEL MEETING.

UM, TYPICALLY AT TECH I'M ACTUALLY FROM TXDOT.

I WORKED THERE FOR SIX YEARS BEFORE

[01:10:01]

I CAME OVER TO THE CITY, BUT, UH, THE WAY THAT IT TYPICAL
