Study of Parkland Dedication Requirements for Commercial Uses DRAFT April 25, 2022 Prepared by: Austin Parks and Recreation Department Mission: Inspire Austin to learn, play, protect and connect by creating diverse programs and experiences in sustainable natural spaces and public places --Study of Parkland Dedication Requirements for Commercial Uses-- This Study provides an overview of parkland dedication as it pertains to retail, industrial, and office uses, as directed by City Council in Resolution No. 20220407-042, passed unanimously on April 7, 2022. This Study, produced by the Parks and Recreation Department, outlines the applicability of creating a new Ordinance to require Parkland Dedication for commercial developments, and outlines the methodology behind such an Ordinance. This Study may be used as the basis for creating a Parkland Dedication Commercial Ordinance, for review and approval by City Council after a public and stakeholder engagement process. Purpose Parkland is an essential city service that affords well documented economic, recreational, physical, and mental health benefits to its users. The current Parkland Dedication Ordinance is a critical tool that allows the Parks and Recreation Department (The Department) to provide park service for the people of Austin in accordance with goals and mandates set forth in the City Charter, City Council Resolution 20091119-068, Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan, and the PARD Long Range Plan. Parks provide recreational opportunities, create community, preserve the city’s character and natural resources, contribute to economic growth and tourism, increase transportation opportunities, and keep Austin beautiful. Parkland dedication requires new developments to adhere to the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan’s key goal of “Preserving Livability” by providing sufficient ample parkland in a rapidly densifying urban center and growing metropolitan area. On February 25, 2020, the Parks and Recreation Board passed Recommendation 20200225-B3, which included the provision that commercial developments be subject to parkland dedication requirements. On March 28, 2022, the Parks and Recreation Board reaffirmed its support to require parkland dedication for office, retail, and industrial developments in Recommendation 20220328-B5. Enacting this provision would better provide parkland to Austin’s growing workforce; currently, 58% of the workforce1 commutes from outside the city limits, and as such is not served by the existing Parkland Dedication Ordinance for residential and hotel/motel developments. Parkland dedication is paramount to fulfilling City Council Resolution 20091119-068, which establishes the goal that all residents be within walking distance of a park. This goal is defined by a park service area of ¼ mile …

PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD DIRECTOR’S REPORT DATE: April 2022 COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT EVENTS: Zilker Metropolitan Park Vision Plan: With the close of Community Survey #5 on April 10, the Parks and Recreation Department (Department) and the consultant team are working to compile and analyze the input received on the plan's three draft concepts via survey data, comments, small group discussions, and pop-up events. This included engagement with resident councils of the Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA), Black Women Who Kayak, Coalition of Texans with Disabilities, and Zilker Park Collective Impact Working Group to name a few, as well as pop-ups at the Kite Festival and several Department Recreation Centers. The team met to discuss the plan concepts with the District 5 Council Office and will soon meet with the District 8 Council Office. Department outreach efforts to increase representation in all districts and to engage in conversations centered on equity and inclusion will continue, including further engagement with HACA, the Boys & Girls Club, and Austin Area Urban League. More information including the draft concepts and survey may be found on the project website at https://www.austintexas.gov/ZilkerVision Districts 5 and 8 Ridgeline Neighborhood Park: Virtual Community Engagement Meeting #2 took place on April 21, 2022, at 5:30 PM. The project team reviewed survey responses from Meeting #1 and presented an illustrative concept plan to the public. Staff had additional survey questions to engage the public on specific preferences for play equipment and amenities. The goal of this project is to provide visible and safe access to the park and install amenities that work within environmental constraints. The current lack of a street sidewalk and safe access to the park inhibits having an on-site outreach event. This project is funded through Parkland Dedication fees. https://www.austintexas.gov/RidgelinePark District 6 Current conditions at Ridgeline Neighborhood Park 1 Dougherty Arts Center Replacement Virtual Community Meeting: The DAC Replacement online event will be held on Monday, April 25 at 7 p.m. The project team will share the current status of the facility design and information on the Art in Public Places (AIPP) opportunities that will be made available through this bond-funded project.
