Austin Economic Development Corporation Stakeholder Update and Discussion on Governance Background  Resolutions 20141211-122 and 20170216-040 the Austin City Council directed the City Manager to “deliver a feasibility study” and “bring forward…specific proposals” related to the creation of an economic development entity with the capacity to “create or support development of affordable housing, redevelopment, revitalization and other priority projects and goals of the City.”     As staff began working with an external consultant to prepare recommendations and working documents for the creation of an entity, Council provided additional direction to align the development of the economic development entity with the intent and creation of an “Austin Cultural Trust” through resolutions 20180215-082 and 20190808-072. In May of this year, Council further directed the City Manager to expedite a review of existing entities and resources that could be centralized to support the timely execution of recovery efforts that could secure or retain creative culture and community benefits in resolutions 20200521-095 and 20200521-096. The Economic Development Department (EDD) staff and consultant presented recommendations for creation of a holistic economic development entity for discussion during the Council Work Session on August 25th. As outlined in the memo provided with the report to Mayor and Council on July 31, 2020.

The City of Austin supports legislation that enhances City services, reduces the cost of providing services, prioritizes a prosperous business climate, and improves the quality of life for its residents. The City of Austin opposes legislation that strips Austin residents of their right to self-governance, increases taxpayer costs for City services that residents rely on, undermines the principle of home rule, negatively affects the City's financial ability to act in the best interest of its residents, or imposes on Austin taxpayers the burden of paying for State mandates or collecting revenues for the State.

The property is within a commercial subdivision, surrounded by similar development and zoning. Additionally, a majority of the site is within the critical water quality zone and has been extensively disturbed through previously permitted development to construct a parking lot and a water quality and detention pond. Without a variance to LDC 25-8-261, the applicant is deprived of the privilege to redevelop this property such that the property would likely remain in its existing condition as an unutilized parking lot. 6 PROPERTY LOCATION CWQZ 7 FINDINGS OF FACT (LDC 25-8-41) …the Land Use Commission may grant a variance after determining that: • 2a: The variance is not necessitated by the scale, layout, construction method, or other design decision made by the applicant, unless the design decision provides greater overall environmental protection than is achievable without the variance: • Staff determination: Yes. The uplands of the property are confined to existing easements that serve the commercial subdivision. Furthermore, a majority of the site (approximately 2.7 ac of 3.97 ac) is within a critical water quality zone. For these reasons, options to develop the site are infeasible without necessitating a variance to LDC 25-8-261. Additionally, previously permitted development within the inner half of the critical water quality zone, including the undersized water quality and detention pond, will be decommissioned and restored to City Standard Specification 609.S. The proposed water quality and detention pond will be located further away from the creek centerline and outside of the inner half of the critical water quality zone, providing greater overall …
