BASIS FOR STAFF’S RECOMMENDATION: The applicant is proposing to amend the Land Use and Design Concept Plan map(s) in the Plaza Saltillo TOD Station Area Plan from Live/Work Flex to TOD Mixed Use so the project can participate in the Density Plus Height Bonus Program. This program will require the proposed multifamily development to reserve a minimum of 15% of the entire square footage as affordable, on-site units for those earning no more than 50% Medium Family Income (MFI). The current designation as Live/Work Flex does not allow the property to participate in this program.

ZONING CHANGE REVIEW SHEET CASE: C14-2023-0153 DISTRICT: 3 ADDRESS: 1307 and 1309 East 4th Street ZONING FROM: TOD-NP (Live/Work Subdistrict) TO: TOD-NP (TOD Mixed Use Subdistrict) SITE AREA: approximately 0.29 acres (approximately 12,632 square feet) PROPERTY OWNER: JLCC Interests, LLC AGENT: Drenner Group, PC (Leah Bojo) CASE MANAGER: Jonathan Tomko (512) 974-1057, jonathan.tomko@austintexas.gov STAFF RECOMMEDATION: Staff recommends granting transit oriented development-neighborhood plan (TOD-NP) combining district zoning (TOD Mixed Use Subdistrict). See the basis of recommendation section below for more information. PLANNING COMMISSION ACTION / RECOMMENDATION: May 28, 2024: Neighborhood postponement request granted to June 11, 2024. June 11. 2024: Case is scheduled to be heard by Planning Commission. CITY COUNCIL ACTION: TBD ORDINANCE NUMBER: N/A ISSUES: N/A CASE MANAGER COMMENTS: The subject tract is currently Office/Retail/Commercial built in approximately 1920 and 1947. To the north of the subject tract (across East 4th Street) is undeveloped land and a nightclub/bar (the historic Scoot Inn) built in approximately 1912, approximately 2,700 square feet east of the tract is a single-family home built in approximately 1909, of approximately 1,100 square feet. To the south of the subject tract are two newer duplexes and to the west of the subject tract is a single- family home built in approximately 1908, approximately 800 square feet. The subject tract is less than 500 feet from the Plaza Saltillo Red Line Station. The property currently contains zero dwelling units per acre. Target residential densities to support robust fixed-route or dedicated transit in an urban center are within the range of 75 to 150 dwelling units per acre within ½ mile radius of the station area. Without an increase in density, and additional more intense mixed-use development as parcels redevelop within the station area, the CapMetro Red Line and associated connecting bus service may under-perform. C14-2023-0153 2 A review of the subdistrict map within the regulating plan indicated a substantial amount of property zoned TOD Mixed Use Subdistrict on the north side of the station area, much further away from the station area. The TOD Mixed Use Subdistrict is found more than 3 times as far away from the station as the subject tract. This distribution is not uniform and there is not a compelling reason to maintain this distribution given its proximity to the station. BASIS OF RECOMMENDATION: The proposed zoning should be consistent with the purpose statement of the district sought. Areas zoned (TOD-NP) TOD Mixed …

BASIS FOR STAFF’S RECOMMENDATION: Staff supports the applicant’s request for Mixed Use Activity HUB/Corridor because the applicant proposes a mixed use development with 187 rental units, with 3,400 square feet of ground floor commercial uses. West Stassney Lane is an Activity Corridor as identified on the Imagine Austin Growth Concept Map where mixed use developments are appropriate. The proposed development will provide housing options for the City and the planning area to meet the Austin Strategic Housing Goals. The South Austin combined Neighborhood Plan states that Mixed Use Activity/HUBS are located at major intersections and along arterial roadways. Planning Commission: June 11, 2024 LAND USE DESCRIPTIONS: EXISTING LAND USE: Neighborhood Node - Neighborhood Node districts contain restaurants, shops, offices, and multi- family housing. The form of these areas is similar to Neighborhood Transition districts but with more commercial activity. Neighborhood Nodes have a similar mix of uses as Mixed Use Hubs, but primarily serve residents in the neighborhood. Building heights range from one to two stories (although many locations are zoned for greater height). PROPOSED LAND USE: Mixed Use Activity HUB/Corridor - Located at the intersections of major roadways and along arterial roadways, Mixed-Use Activity Hubs/Corridors are the most urban areas of the neighborhood and serve the surrounding neighborhoods and the broader community. They consist of a mix of services and housing types at a more intensive scale than a Neighborhood Node.

For a summary of the basis of Staff’s recommendation, please see pages 2 – 4. PLANNING COMMISSION ACTION / RECOMMENDATION: June 11, 2024: CITY COUNCIL ACTION: July 18, 2024 ORDINANCE NUMBER: ISSUES: In December 2023, Ordinance No. 20220609-080, Ordinance No. 20221201-056 and Ordinance No. 20221201-055 were invalidated. On March 11, 2024, Ordinance No. 20240229-073, was enacted to create the “DB90” combining district, which amended City Code Title 25 (Land Development) to create a new zoning district for a density bonus program that grants 30 feet in height above the base zone, to a maximum of 90 feet, and modifies site development regulations including compatibility standards. Subsequently, the C14-2024-0033 Page 2 applicant submitted a rezoning application to request the -DB90 combining district, in order for the City to continue review of site plan. The property is located within the South Austin Combined Neighborhood Plan Area (South Manchaca), and the current FLUM (Future Land Use Map) designation is Neighborhood Node. A Neighborhood Plan Amendment (NPA) is on file with a request to change FLUM to Mixed Use Activity Hub/Corridor and is proposed to be heard at the June 11, 2024 Planning Commission. CASE MANAGER COMMENTS: The subject rezoning area consists of 2.163 acres and is located on the north side of West Stassney Lane, between Union Pacific Railroad right of way and Radam Circle, within the South Austin Combined Neighborhood Plan area, specifically South Manchaca. The property is currently developed with Limited warehousing and distribution use, and a childcare service use (CS-V-NP, LR-NP, GR-V-NP, MF-3-NP). To the north are single family residences (MF-2-NP).

ZONING CHANGE REVIEW SHEET DISTRICT: 9 TO: GR-MU-NP (as amended) CASE: C14-2023-0021 (200 W. Mary) ADDRESS: 200 and 204 West Mary Street ZONING FROM: SF-3-NP SITE AREA: approximately 0.1585 acres (approximately 6,904 square feet) PROPERTY OWNER: Herb Bar Soco, LLC AGENT: Husch Blackwell, LLP (Nikelle Meade) CASE MANAGER: Jonathan Tomko (512) 974-1057, jonathan.tomko@austintexas.gov STAFF RECOMMEDATION: Staff does not recommend granting community commercial-mixed use-neighborhood plan (GR-MU-NP) combining district zoning and offers the alternative recommendation of neighborhood commercial-mixed use-conditional overlay-neighborhood plan (LR- MU-CO-NP) combining district zoning. The conditional overlay would prohibit financial services, off-site accessory parking, pedicab storage and dispatch, pet services, printing and publishing, professional office, service station, theater, college and university facilities. See the basis of recommendation section below for more information. PLANNING COMMISSION ACTION / RECOMMENDATION: June 11, 2024: Case is scheduled to be heard by Planning Commission. CITY COUNCIL ACTION: TBD ORDINANCE NUMBER: N/A ISSUES: Applicant will need to coordinate with the Texas Historical Commission (THC) to determine what kind of work can be done to the building. The Stanley House is on the lot immediately to the west, but it is unclear how far the THC designation boundary extends. Any major work would need to also go through the Landmark Commission if it involves demolition because the main building at 200 West Mary Street was noted as a high priority building in one of the City’s historic surveys. It is possible that the Commission would initiate historic zoning if it is eligible and if the proposed work endangers the building’s ability to convey its significance. The building at 204 West Mary Street is a low priority building. Although the property is zoned as residential, the property has operated as the Herb Bar, a commercial use, since 1986. Prior to 1986, there is also evidence of a retail/food sales use on C14-2023-0021 2 the property since the early 1900’s when it operated as a general store providing groceries to the neighborhood. In 2018, an Amnesty Certificate of Occupancy was issued for the existing retail/food sales uses. CASE MANAGER COMMENTS: The property in question is currently the Herb Bar that sells herbal products in an approximately 720 square foot building built in approximately 1925. The approximately 1,249 square foot building at 204 West Mary Street was built in approximately 1935 contains Massage Master, a personal service use. To the north is a single-family dwelling built in approximately 1994, approximately …

[F. Maxwell – 1st; A. Azhar – 2nd] Vote: 10-0 [G. Anderson and A. Woods absent. One vacancy on the dais]. STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Recommended for applicant’s request for Major Planned Development land use. BASIS FOR STAFF’S RECOMMENDATION: Staff supports the applicants request for Major Planned Development because this 0.56-acre tract is proposed to be included in previously approved planned amendment and zoning cases to be combined for a proposed 21-acre mixed use development. The development is proposed to include clean industrial creative and maker spaces, retail, office, restaurant, and multifamily uses. This area was once proposed for industrial uses but has transitioned over the years to include a mix of uses that will provide services and additional housing for the east side of City. To the south of the property is an opportunity to potentially connect to a future Capital Metro Green Line train station and the opportunity to create a trail connecting to the Southern Walnut Creek Greenbelt. Sections from the East MLK Combined Neighborhood Plan that staff believes supports the applicant’s request. Goal One: Preserve established residential areas and improve opportunities for home ownership by promoting the rehabilitation of existing housing and new, infill housing compatible with the existing style of this neighborhood. Objective 1.2: Promote new infill housing in appropriate locations. Goal Two: Promote a mix of land uses that respect and enhance the existing neighborhood and address compatibility between residential, commercial, and industrial uses. Objective 2.2: Reduce the impact of commercial and industrial uses on residential areas. Goal Three: Preserve existing small businesses and encourage new neighborhood-serving commercial …

The existing conditional overlay that limited daily vehicle trips to no more than 2,000 per day is recommended for removal. However, TPW recommends a Restrictive Covenant tying this site to the TIA for C14-2020-0150. See the basis of recommendation section below for more information.

The applicant has stated their intent to combine the tracts as one cohesive development, a collective 21-acre mixed use development with clean industrial creative and maker spaces, retail, office, restaurant, and multifamily uses. The site development standards are identical to the development standards already approved with the previous cases; however, the applicant has removed their previous modification requests related to the City’s parking requirements so that the development standards are more in line with the City’s present Code. C14-2024-0021 2 Staff supports this request as it is in line with other rezonings to LI-PDA-NP surrounding the subject tract and would enable the owner to combine the tracts into one cohesive development with standard site development regulations, authorized uses, and prohibited uses.

Our position is that Saxon Lane lacks the connectivity requirements to support ground-floor pedestrian oriented commercial space, the traffic along this roadway is very low, and the necessary visibility to attract these uses is non-existent. Therefore, we respectfully request consideration to not mandate ground-floor pedestrian oriented uses with this rezoning. Vargas Road – This road is a neighborhood collector and is the only road that connects US 183 with Montopolis Road. Directly across Vargas Road from the subject property is a small day care and a city park. Next to the park is Allison Elementary School. Both sides of Vargas Road have single-family homes with the exception of two areas – 1) Closer to E. Riverside Drive are more dense apartments and an Idea School – all of which are proximate to the future Blue Line of Project Connect, 2) The intersection of Vargas Road and Felix Avenue is a node for very small, neighborhood oriented commercial spaces. The buildings are one-story, small in size and on small parcels. Most of these buildings are boarded up with no commercial activity. Most older neighborhoods were developed with these types of nodes interior to the neighborhood, and this is how pedestrian oriented uses should be planned – interior to the neighborhood with neighborhood serving uses. However, it is clear that there is simply not enough economic viability for the uses to survive with most of the spaces having been vacant for many years. Our position is that if pedestrian oriented commercial spaces were to be viable in the area, the intersection of Vargas Road and Felix Avenue is the prime spot for those commercial uses and that intersection should be maintained as an option for those types of uses to come back in the future. Therefore, we respectfully request consideration to not mandating ground-floor pedestrian oriented uses with this rezoning as a hope to bring back the much coveted, interior neighborhood serving commercial space which should be a priority.

North-West Corner North-East Corner South-East Corner For the reasons above with the context provided, we respectfully request that commercial space of any type should not be a requirement of this rezoning of the subject property. While a development of the subject property could include commercial space, the market can better ascertain the need at the time of development. It is quite possible that some commercial space may be located on the ground floor, though it may not be pedestrian oriented commercial spaces due to the lack of connectivity, the high-speed traffic of the highway, and the hope that the interior commercial node may come back to life in the future. Please let us know if you have any questions. Sincerely, A. Ron Thrower ATTACHMENT B March 29, 2024 Ms. Lauren Middleton-Pratt, Director Planning Department City of Austin 1000 E. 11th Street Austin, Texas 78702 RE: C14-2022-0107 - Vargas Mixed Use Rezoning – Application amendment for DB90 Overlay & Postponement Request Dear Ms. Middleton-Pratt, Pursuant to Ordinance 20240229-073, adopted by the Austin City Council on February 29, 2024, with an effective date of March 11, 2024, the City of Austin is directing additional housing development in areas of Austin where appropriate through the DB90 Overlay. Our position is that this project meets the requirements to receive the DB90 Overlay and therefore, on behalf of the Landowners, we respectfully amend the application to request the addition of the DB90 Overlay. More specifically, the amended request is follows: Tract 1 – From GR-NP (existing) to CS-DB90-NP (requested) Tract 2 – From LR-NP (existing) to LR-DB90-NP (requested) Further, under Section 25-2-652(F)(3) within the DB90 Ordinance, there is a Mix of Uses requirement related to DB90 projects. While a mix of uses certainly makes for an active street, not all properties can have a mix of uses for varying reasons. Pursuant to Section 25-2- 652(F)(3)(e), the rezoning to add DB90 can modify Section 25-2-652(F)(3)(b) that requires the Pedestrian Oriented uses along certain Principal Streets. In this case, the project is located on 2 Urban Roadways – Vargas Road and Lynch Lane, both of which are qualifying Principal Roadways to waive the requirement. The justification to waive the requirement is that these roadways are interior to a single-family zoned subdivision where the level of commercial activation envisioned with DB90 may not be appropriate or successful. However, the Hwy 183 frontage is appropriate and therefore, we are …

33 Senior Cooperative Housing original pdf

Thumbnail of the first page of the PDF
Page 1 of 2 pages

General Recommendation to City Council: Prioritize city-owned land, especially within ETODs, for the development of income-restricted shared-equity senior housing, including cooperative housing and community land trusts (CLTs). The crisis we are facing: • Seniors are the fastest growing segment of the population falling into homelessness, composing nearly half of the unhoused population, with numbers estimated to triple by 2030. 1 • More than 1 in 5 Americans over 65 are, or are at risk of becoming, “elder orphans”, meaning they have no family available to support them as they age. • • An estimated 4.1 million Americans per year are reaching retirement age and more than half will have to rely primarily on social security as their source of income. 2 In the Austin-Round Rock MSA, 38% of those 65 and older are housing cost burdened and 85% of older adults cannot afford assisted living, 3 meaning that many seniors’ only option is to age in place, often alone. • Service providers will be increasingly challenged to meet the needs of aging, cost- burdened seniors who live individually and across large geographic areas. City of Austin service funding dollars will increasingly fall short of meeting the needs of this population. • Mobility among seniors becomes increasingly challenging as many older adults lose their ability to drive but continue to need access to healthcare providers, groceries, and other services. Local senior mobility programs will struggle with capacity to meet the coming demand as Austin’s senior population grows. Shared equity forms of housing like cooperatives can provide affordability, community, and easy service-provider access for Austin’s older adults at a much lower cost to the City and to taxpayers than traditional income-restricted affordable housing models. • While every affordable housing model is needed to meet Austin’s demand for affordable units, limited-equity cooperative housing offers a unique opportunity to add to our affordable housing inventory without dependence on limited LIHTC financing or a large amount of RHDA or OHDA funding from the City of Austin. 1 Culhane et al., “The Emerging Crisis of Aged Homelessness: Could Housing Solu;ons Be Funded by Avoidance of Excess Shelter, Hospital, and Nursing Home Costs?” 2019 2 Shapiro and StuKgen, “The Peak Boomers Impact Study: A Majority of Peak Boomers Are Not Financially Prepared for Re;rements and Their Re;rements Will Have Large Effects on the U.S. Economy” 2024 3 Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, “Housing America’s Older Adults” …

Re: C14-2024-0022 2700 Del Curto Rezone steve lucas Mon 6/10/2024 8:18 PM To: Hadri, Cynthia <Cynthia.Hadri@austintexas.gov> External Email - Exercise Caution Cynthia, Ok, thought it was listed yesterday and didn't have time and the case was not there this morning. Anyway it's what I told you already: How can this zoning be approved before the tree survey is done? I live and own all the property south of this site and the layout only shows 5 trees to be saved, I know there are a lot more trees that should be on this list and the layout does not show any protection of the area, 75% I believe, of the crown of the trees or the trees under the crown. It showed an access road and buildings next to the trees. I have watched developers level property before the tree survey and when I reported this to the city arborist they could do nothing. I have spent almost 30 years restoring my property and want my work to be saved since the development is next to my trees also. The city has said that they want to maintain and increase the tree cover in the city to 50% and I have read it is now at 40%. Destroying old trees and surrounding trees hurt the environment of the city and none of us will live long enough for any new growth to return if large old trees are destroyed. Because the tree survey has not been done yet I am opposed to this zoning change. I want to oppose this and would like to be kept informed with this and be added to any lists or any documents about this case. If you can pass this along to them to make sure I am at least heard.

Thanks Michael and hello Cynthia. Yes, we would like to request a postponement until July 9th so that tenants at Oak Creek Village are able to have the opportunity to weigh in on the rezoning. We have not been able to conduct outreach due to management interference but had productive meeting this morning with the applicant and are hopeful we should be able to do so soon. If the applicant doesn't agree to the postponement, we will be prepared to come and testify at the commission to ask for a postponement.
