Page 1 of 2 pages

Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center Phase 2 Improvements November 2, 2022 Heidi Tse, PWD - Capital Delivery Project Manager Design Phase (Current phase of project) Design Development (DD) In Progress • Began March 16, 2022, with projected completion in Fall 2022 o Construction will be phased (2 phases) Site Work   Building construction o It is imperative the project stays on schedule as construction costs have escalated significantly and delays will drive costs up.     Construction market conditions are volatile Supply chain issues resulting in long lead times and open-ended shipping charges Labor shortages Inflation • The site permit application was submitted to the Development Services Department (DSD) for regulatory compliance, and comments were received at the end of July. The Joint Venture (JV) submitted the comprehensive site plan package in September 2022. Rounds of comments from DSD and responses from the JV are on-going. • An initial DD Construction Cost reconciliation was completed in late July with continued work by the MACC staff, JV, and Rogers-O’Brien (RO) to align the design scope to meet budget. A second pricing effort was performed in late October and is expected to conclude in November. o Since the initial DD reconciliation was completed in July, the project team developed value engineering strategies reviewed by ESB-MACC staff and the Parks and Recreation Department. In order to keep the project close to the anticipated timeline and continue to build out as much of the original plan as possible, the Department has agreed to proceed with eliminating the lower level and an ADA improvement on the Hike and Bike trail at the ESB-MACC which would have served as a connector to the nearby Confluence project. This strategy was preferred by ESB- MACC staff. o Other remedies are being explored such as grant funding opportunities. • Once Design Development has concluded with scope and budget aligned, an updated set of drawings and images will be shared to the public for awareness to reflect the design. • Community Outreach to provide updates continue o Community Communication Forum (CCF)  Reoccurring on 3rd Thursdays of each month at 12-1pm.  On 8/18/22, six (6) attendees confirmed with four (4) members attending the meeting out of the twelve (12) members (Martha Cotera, Larry Amaro, Nick Block, Daniel Llanes). On 9/22/22, five (5) members attended (Charlotte Tonsor, Larry Amaro, Ana Maciel, Daniel Llanes, Tomas Salas). …

Page 1 of 4 pages

BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION Mexican American Cultural Center Advisory Board Recommendation Number: 20221102-7 Request for additional funding for the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center Phase 2 expansion and renovation project. WHEREAS the ESB-MACC leased a portion of their property at 64 Rainey Street to Sackman Enterprises and used the funds to commission the 2018 Facility Expansion without the use of the General Fund, Hotel Occupancy Tax, the Rainey Historical District Fund, or the like. WHEREAS a comprehensive community engagement was completed as part of the 2018 Facility Expansion Plan which included community members and Austin City Council members. WHEREAS the 2018 Facility Expansion Plan included an estimated Phase 2 project cost between $30 Million and $42.5 Million. WHEREAS the Austin City Council unanimously voted to adopt the 2018 Facility Expansion Plan on May 24, 2018 with the intent to complete all remaining phases without preconditions on funding sources. WHEREAS the 2018 Bond Committee recommended, and Austin City Council approved $27 Million to be included under Proposition B for the ESB-MACC Phase 2 project. The original recommendation of $15 Million was insufficient to meet the outlined Phase 2 in the 2018 Facility Management Plan and was met with much community and ESB-MACC Advisory Board opposition. WHEREAS 74 percent of voters in the 2018 election voted in favor of Proposition B. WHEREAS the Joint Venture team of Miro Rivera Architects (Austin) and Estudio Tatiana Bilbao (Mexico City) was selected to lead the Phase 2 design in part because of their experience designing world-class facilities. WHEREAS the Joint Venture team’s first priority was to provide a Phase 2 Scope of Work outline that would provide clear guidance on what could be afforded with the 2018 Proposition B funds. This phase began in November 2020 and concluded in February 2021. The ESB-MACC Advisory Board unanimously approved the Phase 2 document at the March 3, 2021, Advisory Board meeting with a list of recommendations on how the Phase 2 project management team could maintain a transparent and equitable process. WHEREAS the ESB-MACC Advisory Board were notified at the May 13, 2021, Special Called Meeting of the Advisory Board that an additional $3 Million would be required to keep the project within budget. It was then noted that additional funds would become available through a Parkland Dedication Fund. It was the Advisory Board and community’s understanding that the design being developed was back under budget. WHEREAS …
