Agenda Item 3a: GTOPs 2021 Recommendations original pdf

Page 1 of 12 pages

M E M O R A N D U M TO: FROM: Community Technology & Telecommunications Commission John Speirs, Program Manager Telecommunications & Regulatory Affairs September 25, 2020 DATE: SUBJECT: Recommendations for 2021 Grant for Technology Opportunities Program Background The City of Austin’s Digital Inclusion Strategic Plan, as adopted by Resolution No. 20141120- 074, includes every Austin resident having an opportunity to be fully engaged in digital society, accessing and using digital and communications technology. The Office of Telecommunications & Regulatory Affairs (TARA) is the lead office for implementation of this plan. The Grant for Technology Opportunities Program (GTOPs) is a grant administered by the Community Technology (CT) Division of TARA directed at improving the community's ability to fully participate in the digital society to achieve the goals of the Digital Inclusion Strategic Plan. Purpose and Process The purpose of this report is to review the significant changes coming to the 2021 cycle of the GTOPs. Each year, CT staff performs a review of the prior grant cycle in preparation for the next year of grants. For this year’s annual strategic planning and review process, feedback surveys were deployed to all GTOPs applicants and reviewers. In addition, staff observations and multiple touchpoints with the chair of the Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission (CTTC) were taken into account. From these data sources, recommendations were drafted. Subsequently, the draft recommendations were reviewed by a focus group and other key stakeholders, including non-profits involved in the GTOPs space, the City’s Equity Office, and the chair of the CTTC. The feedback from the focus group were incorporated into the final version of the recommendations, presented below. Analysis There are three categories of changes being proposed for the GTOPs 2021 cycle: 1) Adjustments to the application process to ensure a clearer and more direct relationship between the scoring criteria and the application and to better weight Focus Areas; 2) changes to the overall GTOPs structure to provide for efficiency, enhanced support for grantees, and to adjust the GTOPs schedule to accommodate the holiday months; and 3) eases the administrative burden of 1 reporting on contractors. Together, these three changes could greatly improve service delivery and core program capacity to local Austin nonprofit groups. Adjustments to the Application and Scoring Process Recommendation: Replace the current “Focus Area” system that guarantees funding based on category with a new system that gives bonus points to organizations that meet …

B1: A-Ebba Springs Fact Sheet original pdf

Page 1 of 1 page

U.S. Board on Geographic Names Ebba Springs Proposal Fact Sheet • The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) has received a proposal from a property owner near Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park and the Austin Lake Hills neighborhood to officially name a natural spring on their property as Ebba Springs. • The BGN is responsible by law for standardizing geographic names for use by the Federal Government. The spring currently has no name that is official for federal use. • The BGN places importance on local opinion and therefore in accordance with their standard processes, asks for input from local government elected officials who represent community members who may have an interest. • The requesting property owner states that the spring has been known locally for many years as Ebba Springs, and the property is known as the "Ebba Springs Wildlife Refuge." • The City Council is asked to provide its recommendation on the naming to the BGN due to the property being located on land in Travis County that falls under the Extra Terrestrial Jurisdiction of the City Austin to protect the nearby Colorado watershed. Recommendations are also being sought from the Travis County Commissioners Court and Texas Geographic Names Committee. Federally recognized Tribes also have an opportunity to provide comments. • This item comes to the Parks and Recreation Board as a courtesy review for comment because of the spring’s proximity to Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park. • The City Council is scheduled to consider its recommendation on this matter at the October 15, 2020 meeting. 1 of 1

The total proposed impervious cover is 8,165 square feet (69.1%). SUMMARY STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of the site plan as proposed.
