Project (SPaces into Places) Re Surfaced East Austin ​ 02.30.2020 ─ Raasin in the sun 1801 E 51st St, Suite 365 Austin, Texas 78723 ​ 1 Overview Resurfaced (Pilot) is a program initiative that explores creative strategies to activate underutilized urban spaces. As with many cities the size of Austin, surface parking and vacant lots have historically been unproductive in terms of serving the community versus benefiting vehicle parking for a good portion of the downtown and surrounding areas. Through Resurfaced, we work with the community and strategic partners to re-vitalize these spaces by making low-cost investments that activate the space NOW rather than waiting for big, long-term developments to take shape. These initiatives focus on the city as the ultimate user interface, where the community can experiment and enjoy unique locations filled with inspiring visual arts from local creative and begin dialog about how we can revive the multitude of surface lots and underutilized spaces, ultimately, ​turning spaces into places​. Mission Our mission is to serve the community through urban beautification projects that unite residents and combat neighborhood deterioration. Through the implementation of project resurfaced we will create opportunities for players of all skill levels, age, and background to engage as a community through the sport of soccer, while providing a place to showcase visual arts, community gardens to enrich the space, and incorporate community centered events. Vision An environmentally conscious community space for pick-up games,community gardens, visual arts, and community events. Goals 1. Now 2. Later Resurfaced Team 2 Land Development/Code Specialist: Kelan Robinson Landscape Architecture: Kim Harding (DWG) Landscape Architecture: Daniel Woodfroff (DWG) Construction Manager: Mark Rogers Programs and Facilities: Raasin McIntosh Media/Content Specialist: Kris San Resurfaced National Model (Click title or image) 3 ​ 1604 E. 12th Street 4 5 Environmental Benefits What 'the Landscape' can do: ● Will upgrade current compacted site to previous field (grass or turf) ● Plant pockets of sponge park for stormwater infiltration ● Capture stormwater in cisterns (from the container roofs) for watering the field ● Shaded outdoor spaces/ tree plantings ● Plant pollinator species/ urban habitat ● Inspire care of the park and its surroundings, community cleanups ● Use of recycled and reusable construction materials for carbon sequestration ● Provide access to vital open space in a community that lacks a robust distribution of small neighborhood parks and open space.

RESPONSES TO URB QUESTIONS REGARDING USES: PAZ RESPONSES August 24, 2020 At the August 17, 2020 URB meeting, several questions were asked regarding permitted uses and the specific “save and except uses” and nonconforming uses. Below are staff’s responses: PERMITTED AND SAVE AND EXCEPT USES  The save and except uses were carved out of the subdistrict where they are located (due to the use being an existing use) when the subdistrict otherwise made them prohibited. The save and except uses for specific properties are permitted uses and must adhere to the regulations governing the use. The uses will be permitted to operate until action is taken to make them prohibited.  A save and except use may be expanded and would be a permitted use regulated by the applicable regulations. As long as the proposed expansions (parking, impervious cover, building height, building coverage, etc.) meet the code adhere to the code, they can expand just like the same use on another site. NONCONFORMING USES – Land Development Code, Article 7  Below are specific Land Development Code (LDC) sections pertaining to nonconforming uses that address some of the URB’s discussions: o Austin’s LDC (§ 25-2-941) defines a nonconforming use as: …a land use that does not conform to current use regulations but did conform to the use regulations in effect at the time the use was established. o § 25-2-944 - Damaged Structure Used for a Nonconforming Use (A) A damaged structure used for a nonconforming use may be repaired and the nonconforming use continued if the building official determines that the cost of repair does not exceed 90 percent of the value of the structure immediately before the damage. o § 25-2-945 - ABANDONMENT OF NONCONFORMING USE. (A) A person abandons a nonconforming use if: (1) the person changes the use of property from a nonconforming use to a conforming use; or (2) the person discontinues the nonconforming use for 90 consecutive days. (B) A seasonal discontinuance of a use, or a temporary discontinuance of a use for maintenance or repair, is excluded from a calculation of the 90-day period described in Subsection (A)(2). (C) A person may not resume an abandoned nonconforming use. o § 25-2-946 Nonconformance Use Groups This is a section of the code that determines what nonconforming use group a nonconforming use will fall into as prescribed by Section 25-2-947(Nonconforming Use Regulation Groups) Generally, …

August 26, 2020 Dear Chair Escobar and Commissioners, Thank you all for your diligent and thoughtful review of the URP changes proposed by your staff as well as the individual amendments offered by commissioners and by the Organization of Central East Austin Neighborhoods. The URP and NCCDs are foundational documents that represent two decades of community work and compromise that we all rely on to inspire and guide growth and change that preserves and enhances livability and honors the history and culture of this area. As regards the issues the Board is slated to consider this week, OCEAN respectfully urges you to: 1. Amend and support the two bullet point statements under the Accomplishments section that capture the URB’s preference for preservation in place of historic assets by reinserting the words “current, potential or recommended” in front of “landmarks” to fully reflect the URB’s action in April 2019. 2. Adopt Commissioner Motwani’s suggested language for Vision and Purpose statements, as it retains the connection between the Plan and the community that created it and will continue to be impacted by its implementation. 3. Adopt use language that carries forward the legal, non-conforming status of Cocktail Lounge use as permitted at specific sites under the original Plan but does not expand the use along the street or provide for physical expansion of existing uses. 4. Adopt use language that carries forward under the ‘Save and Except’ section the legal, conforming status of all existing Funeral Service, Condominium Residential/Townhome, Single-Family Attached Residential, Single-Family Residential, Small-Lot Single-Family Residential, Two-Family Residential, Club, Lodge and Hotel/Motel (ground floor) uses. 5. Ensure that the Use Chart reflects that Cocktail Lounge is prohibited, except as a legal non-conforming use at the addresses listed in the draft. 6. Ensure that the Use Chart clearly reflects that Professional Office is a permitted ground floor use on East 12th Street. 7. Postpone approving the package of URP amendments until all proposed amendments to the East 12th Street NCCD are published for adequate review, as the NCCD text is to be appended to and serve as the primary reference for site development standards permitted by the Plan. As of today, those changes are not posted on your Meeting Materials page. Thank you, all, again for your willingness to take the time to engage the community in this review and carefully consider what ought to be preserved and what changed so the …

Project (SPaces into Places) Re Surfaced East Austin ​ 02.30.2020 ─ Raasin in the sun 1801 E 51st St, Suite 365 Austin, Texas 78723 ​ 1 Overview Resurfaced (Pilot) is a program initiative that explores creative strategies to activate underutilized urban spaces. As with many cities the size of Austin, surface parking and vacant lots have historically been unproductive in terms of serving the community versus benefiting vehicle parking for a good portion of the downtown and surrounding areas. Through Resurfaced, we work with the community and strategic partners to re-vitalize these spaces by making low-cost investments that activate the space NOW rather than waiting for big, long-term developments to take shape. These initiatives focus on the city as the ultimate user interface, where the community can experiment and enjoy unique locations filled with inspiring visual arts from local creative and begin dialog about how we can revive the multitude of surface lots and underutilized spaces, ultimately, ​turning spaces into places​. Mission Our mission is to serve the community through urban beautification projects that unite residents and combat neighborhood deterioration. Through the implementation of project resurfaced we will create opportunities for players of all skill levels, age, and background to engage as a community through the sport of soccer, while providing a place to showcase visual arts, community gardens to enrich the space, and incorporate community centered events.
