Access to the Site is from Matthews Lane. The property was annexed to the full purpose jurisdiction on 11/15/1984 and assigned development reserve (DR) zoning. A Demolition permit for a one family home was issued January 21, 2016 for a residence established in about 1935. Request The applicant requests urban family residence (SF-5) zoning for the tract. SF-5 zoning requires 10,500 sq. ft. minimum site area and 3,500 sq. ft. area per unit. The subject tract is 2.4876 acres (108,360.32 square feet). There is a “creek buffer” crossing the tract which may reduce the total number of units that can be built, encourage clustering or both. The portions of the tract that are unbuildable will be determined during site planning. Applicant intends to build 10 townhouse style residences. Context The subject tract is one of five contiguous (DR) zoned tracts but the only undeveloped tract. Property Profile shows a Creek Buffer/Waterway Setback on a significant portion of the subject tract, and shows the waterway continuing beyond the south property line along the rear (west) property lines of the residential lots fronting on Cooper Lane and reaching Boggy Creek and FEMA Floodplain south of Dittmar Road. The five (DR) zoned tracts (including the subject tract) are surrounded by single-family residence - standard lot (SF-2) zoning. Lots to the west are generally 0.5 acre to over 2.0 acres though minimum required lot area for SF-2 is 5,750 sq. ft., Maximum building height in SF-2 is 35 feet, and lots are limited to one dwelling. There are five SF-2 zoned lots bordering the subject …

The conditional overlay (CO) will preserve the requirement that the properties comply with the Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) that was previously approved for the area. The Applicant agrees to the conditional overlay. For a summary of the basis of staff’s recommendation, see case manager comments on page 2. ZONING AND PLATTING COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: January 19, 2021: CITY COUNCIL DATE: February 18, 2021: ORDINANCE READINGS: 1st 2nd 3rd CASE MANAGER: Heather Chaffin e-mail: heather.chaffin@austintexas.gov ORDINANCE NUMBER: PHONE: 512-974-2122 1 of 39B-04 C14-2020-0122, C14-2020-0123 Page 2 ISSUES: The rezoning tracts were included in a Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) for the overall Pioneer Hill area that was approved in 2002 and amended in 2003 and 2011. At that time, the City of Austin attached TIA requirements via conditional overlay instead of via public restrictive covenant (RC). The applicant has agreed to maintain the TIA conditional overlay with this request.

The North Tract is currently zoned GR-CO and LI-CO; the South Tract is zoned GR-CO. Both tracts are currently undeveloped. The properties immediately to the north and south of the rezoning tracts are also undeveloped and are zoned MF-3-CO and MF-4, respectively.

This represents a down zoning of the tracts, which currently allow a range of commercial and limited …

Based on changes proposed by the applicant to now include additional stream restoration, staff now recommends the variance, having determined that the required findings of fact have been met. The applicant originally sought to extend Meadow Lake Blvd across a waterway, involving cut more than 4 feet within 100 feet of a classified waterway. Staff previously recommended denial of the variance, having determined that the required findings of fact per City Code 25-8-41 (Land Use Commission Variances) had not been met. More specifically, the original variance request was a design decision made by the applicant that did not achieve greater overall environmental protection. The variance request was considered by the Environmental Commission on May 20, 2020, and they recommended denial of the variance request. Since consideration by the Environmental Commission, the applicant (Public Works Department) has collaborated with the Watershed Protection and Development Services departments to now incorporate a stream restoration project as part of the extension of Meadow Lake Blvd. …

From: Karen Reynolds < Sent: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 11:18 AM To: Rivera, Andrew <Andrew.Rivera@austintexas.gov> Subject: Demand Removal of Jim Duncan *** External Email - Exercise Caution *** Andrew, Include this on the official Zoning and Platting Commission web page for each case on the agenda. Zoning and Planning Commission: I again urge you and the city council to hold Jim Duncan accountable for his inappropriate behavior and demand his resignation. Any case Jim Duncan votes on should be nullified. Karen Reynolds STOP ALISON ALTER’S COVER UP FOR JIM DUNCAN REMOVE JIM DUNCAN FROM THE ZONING COMMISSION RELEASE THE SECURITY VIDEO Alison Alter Continues to Lie to Protect Jim Duncan When I called the December 3, 2020 meeting this is what Alison said. “...may recall Ms. Reynold’s emailed earlier in the year. My office asked the Law Department to look into it.” - Alison ALISON THAT IS A LIE. I EMAILED YOU AS EARLY AS APRIL 2019! FOR OVER A YEAR YOU HAVE ATTEMPTED TO COVER THIS UP “Ms. Reynolds has declined to participate in the investigation.” – Alison ALISON THAT IS A LIE. I DIRECTLY PROVIDED INFORMATION TO LYNN CARTER OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN LAW DEPARTMENT “…the incident did not occur in the manner Ms. Reynold’s has described.” – Alison ALISON THAT IS A LIE. WITNESSES HAVE COME FORWARD AND FRED LEWIS THREATENED LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ONE WITNESS! THE "INCIDENT" IS CAPTURED ON SECURITY VIDEO RELEASE THE VIDEO, CONFIRMED BY CITY HALL SECURITY PERSONNEL Email reply to Kurt from JULY 20, 2020, over a year from the date of the reported incident On Jul 23, 2020, at 8:39 AM, Karen Reynolds <kareynolds26@yahoo.com> wrote: Kurt, I find your email absolutely appalling and insulting. I emailed to report the incident over a year ago and this is the first and only response I’ve received from your office. You say you “initiated an inquiry”, so certainly Alison viewed the security video, and that wasn’t enough? Wow! Take Jim Duncan’s misconduct seriously, this is the time for action not white sugar coated explanation! • Remove Jim Duncan from the Zoning Commission • Refer this matter to the Auditor and Ethics Commission -which Alison should have done over a year ago. • Release the security video, confirmed by security officer Bernice Trevino showing Jim Duncan striking the African American woman on her backside. Kurt, don’t play me and the public for fools,of course, …

Question and Answer Report Commissioner Aguirre 1. The concerns of the surrounding neighborhoods is flooding along Marble Creek, including downstream properties, which have experienced increased flooding. Will the applicant continue to work with WPD to ensure measures are taken to mitigate flooding and ensure no adverse impact is experienced to properties adjacent to and downstream of this property? 2. Residents have voiced concerns regarding flooding. Will applicant continue to stay in close communication with neighborhood residents to gain input from them and inform residents of efforts the applicant, with WPD input, are taking to mitigate flood safety concerns. 3. Will the applicant agree to not place any wastewater line(s)along Marble Creek. 4. What level of affordable housing will the applicant consider providing? 5. What efforts are being made to increase access to public transportation? Response: Pending B-2 B-3 Commissioner Aguirre / Response Staff: Regarding B-3, it was presented to the Environmental Commission in May 2020 and was denied. After the revisions were made by staff, per the December 2020 Memorandum, was the case subsequently referred to the Environmental Commission for reconsideration? Is so, the Commission’s action is missing. If not subsequently referred, please explain why not. Response: The case was not reconsidered by the Environmental Commission. Although changes to a project between consideration by the Environmental Commission and the Land Use Commission are rare, our standard process for the Environmental Commission is that only changes between hearings that would be environmentally detrimental necessitate a case to be reconsidered by the Environmental Commission. Since Public Works did agreed to partner with the Watershed Protection Department and add the stream restoration components to the project providing a positive environmental benefit, I did not feel that reconsideration by the Environmental Commission was warranted for this case. Additionally, the Public Works roadway project has been significantly delayed by the time required to design the stream restoration component and have the plans reviewed again by staff, so I wanted to minimize further disruption to their schedule.
