JimmyFlannigan "@MayorAdler @cubbie9000 @austinmonitor but “never-ending” isn’t fiscally repastable. It’s an exercise in fuscillity"
@JimmyFlannigan @MayorAdler @cubbie9000 well folks, we’ve got our winner for todays thread of the day. Guess we can all go home! March 23, 2017 10:03 AM
Good Morning, folks! Austin City Council is just about back and we are here to stalk them. #atxcouncil March 23, 2017 10:08 AM
austinmonitor "Good Morning, folks! Austin City Council is just about back and we are here to stalk them. #atxcouncil"
@austinmonitor … in a really friendly and wonky way, obvs. March 23, 2017 10:09 AM
Happy Birthday @MayorAdler ! Great singing, City Hall. #atxcouncil March 23, 2017 10:13 AM
MKanin "Welp, @austinmonitor live-tweeting has gotten much more exciting in my absence https://t.co/dTcPmsqwjE"
@MKanin It’s all a ruse. March 23, 2017 10:14 AM
MKanin "@austinmonitor that a general statement?"
@MKanin No. I don’t know why I started things off so spookily! It’s going to be hard to maintain this level of creepiness. March 23, 2017 10:16 AM
MrsRobinsonCHS "Hey @austinmonitor , I have been considering a subscription because I heard about your story map. However, the map doesn’t seem to work."
@MrsRobinsonCHS ohhhhhhhh. We see what you mean. Fix incoming. Meantime, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page… March 23, 2017 10:17 AM
Items 20 and 21, flood buyouts, will be postponed, though there are speakers. March 23, 2017 10:18 AM
Item 46
Looks like they are going to postpone Item 46, the anti-lobbying waiver for that organics contract. March 23, 2017 10:22 AM
Item 21
Now hearing speakers on item 21 — flood buyouts — though it will be postponed. March 23, 2017 10:33 AM
Now taking up the DNA Lab items as part of the consent agenda, though they are being noted for importance. March 23, 2017 10:39 AM
That’s going to pass as part of the consent agenda. March 23, 2017 10:42 AM
Items 18 and 23 are the only things pulled this morning — but don’t be deceived! There are plenty of zoning cases this afternoon. March 23, 2017 10:52 AM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 11AM

CM Troxclair voting no on 11, 42, 60; Abstaining on 4, 34, 36, 37, 38, 53, 58. Houston abstains on 54. March 23, 2017 11:08 AM
Item 23
Now talking about Item 23, MPT Tovo is tinkering with some of the language for the Plaza Saltillo TOD. March 23, 2017 11:12 AM
Sorry — had some other business to attend to. However, Item number 23 passed! Now onto the morning briefing. March 23, 2017 11:20 AM
The briefing is on the Strategic Housing Plan, which has been in the works for more than a year now. March 23, 2017 11:22 AM
Basically, this is a plan to set goals for affordable housing in the city. “Like a road map” March 23, 2017 11:25 AM
Right now, just running through the presentation (doubt this link will work) https://t.co/LDFQnFYHF3 March 23, 2017 11:36 AM
This about sums up the current state of things: https://t.co/OAzjZYucWc March 23, 2017 11:37 AM
Cost of closing the affordable housing gap today: $6.48 billion. In 2025: $11.18 billion. March 23, 2017 11:39 AM
chris78701 "@austinmonitor it worked"
@chris78701 Huzzah! March 23, 2017 11:39 AM
RT @cubbie9000: Update! #HB3418 has been referred to the House Committee on Urban Affairs. https://t.co/td5AjZZkrr March 23, 2017 11:43 AM
Uh oh. “Reality check slide” shows the disparity between goal of 60,000 aff units in 10 years and resources available. March 23, 2017 11:46 AM
Slide shows that 10,000 units would be created, not 60,000, and the gap will continue to grow. March 23, 2017 11:47 AM
Here is the buzzkill slide: https://t.co/krCmrqRsef March 23, 2017 11:48 AM
Thornton Road developer nixes zoning request. Read more (via @JoClifton78704): https://t.co/ZlGO19nnJa #atxgov March 23, 2017 11:50 AM
Lots of recommendations (ten!) about how to start tackling this problem. March 23, 2017 11:52 AM

Doing the prelunch scheduling discussion now. Looks like they are going to pick this up… after lunch? March 23, 2017 12:10 PM
On to Citizens Communication, by the way. See you all after lunch! March 23, 2017 12:16 PM

We’re back! March 23, 2017 02:26 PM
Item 47
Bit of housekeeping. Item 47 needs to be passed as an “emergency” that would allow ordinance to take effect immediately March 23, 2017 02:27 PM
Item 47
Item 47 re-passes unanimously. March 23, 2017 02:28 PM
Item 65
Item 65 passes with a warning from CM Houston about “term limits” March 23, 2017 02:30 PM
Now on to the zoning consent agenda. #getstoked March 23, 2017 02:31 PM
Items for consent: 71, 72, 75, 76, 81, 88, 93. Items for postponement: 84, 85, 86, 87, 89, 90, 91 (indefinite) March 23, 2017 02:36 PM
Item 83
Item 83 (Austin Oaks) up now. Let the fun begin. March 23, 2017 02:38 PM
Four people up to speak now. Starting with Shannon Maroney with NW Neighbors. Has been working on this for “a few years” March 23, 2017 02:39 PM
Maroney running through “most recent polls” about the PUD. August 2014 93% opposed. Now 41% okay with PUD, fewer respondants March 23, 2017 02:41 PM
Maroney notes fewer people participated in most recent poll, guesses 2.5 years of this case may be wearing folks out. March 23, 2017 02:42 PM
Maroney is now talking about overcrowding of schools, so I guess no push for “family friendly” housing on this one? March 23, 2017 02:44 PM
Felix Jimenez with Workers Defense up now, talking about Better Builder Standards. March 23, 2017 02:46 PM
Now another Workers Defense rep up, with the same message, owner receptive to adding Better Builder Standards March 23, 2017 02:48 PM
Neighbor up now, talking about traffic. #uniquetweet March 23, 2017 02:50 PM
Speaker left a little after 5, speaking just before 3 and is still complaining about traffic. Seems like good time to me? #timetravel March 23, 2017 02:53 PM
At any rate, she’s asking for less density in the name of less traffic on Spicewood Springs Road. March 23, 2017 02:54 PM
CodeNEXT consultants respond to accusations of dividing city. Read more: https://t.co/YpLMKRmyLk #atxgov March 23, 2017 02:55 PM
Item 55
Back to Item 55 for now — which would create a working group for Austin Resource Recovery and Austin Water March 23, 2017 02:57 PM
Item 55
Item 55 passes unanimously (but I’m not sure I entirely get what that was all about.) March 23, 2017 02:59 PM
Item 18
Now on to Item 18, which I DO understand. The search for a new city manager! March 23, 2017 02:59 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 3PM

The issue at hand here is whether to keep the candidates for new city manager secret or not. Expect to hear the word “pageant” soon! March 23, 2017 03:00 PM
Right now talking the level of engagement the Citizen’s Committee will have, and how they will go about finding people to fill the position. March 23, 2017 03:05 PM
Council will meet with the top 5-10 candidates, and then the very top candidates. At this point, citizens committee might meet them too March 23, 2017 03:07 PM
Everyone seems to be going along with the consultant’s recommendation to keep candidates private so far. March 23, 2017 03:11 PM
Consultant says he believes they would lose a number of strong candidates by making the names public early on. March 23, 2017 03:16 PM
Moving forward with the confidential hiring process, in a unanimous vote. March 23, 2017 03:21 PM
Item 79
Item 79 up now. Zoning case at 4714 South Congress. March 23, 2017 03:31 PM
Here’s our story about that case (and another one coming up today) https://t.co/MzW5r1tG5l March 23, 2017 03:33 PM
Council right now toeing the line on arm-twisting for affordable housing and allowing the developer to offer it up in a deal w/ neighborhood March 23, 2017 03:37 PM
City Council can, of course, only require affordable housing under very specific circumstances. March 23, 2017 03:38 PM
Alice Glasco, repping developer, says that they are happy to include affordable housing March 23, 2017 03:39 PM
Glasco is explaining that extended affordable housing requires a partnership with an org, in her experience, not a neighborhood. March 23, 2017 03:45 PM
It’s appears to be kind of a clunky situation — the city can enforce to a certain point — but more affordability requires separate entity March 23, 2017 03:46 PM
Adler reasonably looking “for a way to graciously accept a generous offer” of affordability. (Instead of making it hard, like now) March 23, 2017 03:47 PM
Council votes to approve on second reading. Unanimous, with details to be worked out before third. March 23, 2017 03:49 PM
Item 80
Item 80 up now, 4411 South Congress Ave March 23, 2017 03:50 PM
Same kind of issues, but applicant not able to distribute affordability across unit types, unlike last case. Glasco reps this as well March 23, 2017 03:51 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 4PM

Item 92
We’ve moved on to Item 92, which is the creation of the Aldridge Place Historic District March 23, 2017 04:02 PM
Here’s the last time we wrote about this, I think: https://t.co/lDsTzIZZv0 March 23, 2017 04:03 PM
JeffStensland "@austinmonitor This is @cubbie9000 story on Historic Zoning bill. 😉 A good read, nonetheless."
@JeffStensland @cubbie9000 oops! March 23, 2017 04:10 PM
STRReform "Did she bring up Northwest Austin Neighbors survey that shows 85% against AO PUD? @austinmonitor #atxcouncil… https://t.co/QCyK1bSy9I"
@STRReform @MayorAdler Sure, I think that was just one of the four polls she cited. I mentioned first and last because Twitter March 23, 2017 04:10 PM
Moved to approve on all three readings from MPT Tovo. March 23, 2017 04:17 PM
CM Casar has difficulty supporting whole districts. Asking how it would impact new construction. March 23, 2017 04:19 PM
Now discussing the unique trustee system that will oversee the district. CM Flannigan now asking what the overall good of a LHD is March 23, 2017 04:27 PM
Lots of questioning about the value of historic districts from a skeptical CM Flannigan March 23, 2017 04:32 PM
Timothy Bray up now, asking for a chance to get more information, but also speaking against historic preservation: “look forward,” he says March 23, 2017 04:38 PM
RT @cubbie9000: .@austinmonitor @ATX_311 “Walk-ins welcome” https://t.co/HSBV8e4VWD March 23, 2017 04:41 PM
Clearly! https://t.co/9MRcT8flxd March 23, 2017 04:43 PM
CM Flannigan notes that he is against it, but he’s okay with losing. Then accuses Adler of stealing his jokes for some reason. March 23, 2017 04:56 PM
CM Troxclair makes a motion to approve on only first reading, not all three. March 23, 2017 04:59 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 5PM

MPT Tovo speaking to her motion to approve flat out, and stresses this is in line with city goals. March 23, 2017 05:02 PM
Sethersk82 "@austinmonitor DRAMA! https://t.co/alUsEk0NSu"
@Sethersk82 Appropriate. Total Lisa R. move. March 23, 2017 05:03 PM
Vote to change to first reading fails. Passes on all three readings in a vote of 8-3 with Troxclair, Casar and Flannigan voting against. March 23, 2017 05:07 PM
Item 66
Council now back to discussing Item 66, which is the briefing on the strategic housing plan. March 23, 2017 05:15 PM
Will take this up again on April 4. March 23, 2017 05:24 PM
Three items left, Austin Oaks will be up first after dinner (unless the Ben White items are real quick) Council will be back at 6:45 March 23, 2017 05:38 PM

JeffStensland "Still to come at #atxcouncil, second reading on Austin Oaks PUD. One speaker is prepping this map of trees on site. https://t.co/OPnv8iJs3o"
@JeffStensland is that peanut butter? March 23, 2017 06:30 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 7PM

And Council is back from their break. Going to “real quick” handle Items 73 and 74. March 23, 2017 07:02 PM
CM Garza self identifies as “the Lone Ranger of connectivity issues,” noting she has consistently stood up for connectivity. March 23, 2017 07:04 PM
CM Flannigan assures Garza she is not alone. March 23, 2017 07:05 PM
Looks like there may be more like “the Three Amigos of Connectivity”: Garza, Flannigan, and Casar. March 23, 2017 07:09 PM
“I don’t think always connecting streets works” — CM Kitchen March 23, 2017 07:10 PM
Council just worked pretty hard to establish the fact that this is their only chance to weigh in on connectivity. March 23, 2017 07:18 PM
The looming specter of the @CrestviewGate appears! March 23, 2017 07:19 PM
ATD director Spillar notes that there needs to be a larger discussion about connectivity so staff can provide better recommendations March 23, 2017 07:20 PM
Richard Dale Bailey — retired firetruck driver — shows up to speak! He’s pro connectivity and access. March 23, 2017 07:25 PM
Casar’s point here is that the agreement does not take future residents into account. Kitchen’s point is that there is an agreement March 23, 2017 07:30 PM
“The roads are not owned by the neighborhood. The roads are owned by the entire community,” — CM Flannigan March 23, 2017 07:31 PM
Owner has just assured City Council that “the neighborhood would be out in force” if they thought the agreement wouldn’t stand March 23, 2017 07:38 PM
Also: road through the middle of the property would limit options for multifamily development. March 23, 2017 07:39 PM
CM Pool says that she is all for more housing, which is the important thing. March 23, 2017 07:40 PM
Motion to pass on second reading on the table, with expectations of more conversation and maps ahead! March 23, 2017 07:47 PM
Passes on second reading, vote 9-2 with Pool and Renteria voting no. March 23, 2017 07:49 PM
Item 83
Item 83, Austin Oaks PUD up now. Two and half hours of testimony ahead! March 23, 2017 07:50 PM
Michael Whellan up now, representing the developer. Ready to dispel misinformation. March 23, 2017 07:52 PM
Whellan going over the history now, explaining the numerous compromises. Building lowered from 7 to 6 stories, building gone for park… March 23, 2017 07:54 PM
… removed a road to save trees, increased a building by a floor. March 23, 2017 07:55 PM
Whellan notes that staff supports the current plan. March 23, 2017 07:55 PM
Under current zoning, 900,000 square feet of office, no residential or parkland or streetscapes (like bike lanes) March 23, 2017 07:58 PM
Whellan categorizes the current site as an “environmental mess” that is a tree-suffocating sea of asphalt. March 23, 2017 07:58 PM
Represents a “true Austin Compromise” where everyone is unhappy. March 23, 2017 07:59 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 8PM

Speaker up now complaining about traffic and straw men. Says if they wanted to develop something terrible under current zoning, they would March 23, 2017 08:08 PM
Speaker up now has the diorama of trees, says that Whellan speaks beautifully and she wishes she had different ears to hear him with. March 23, 2017 08:12 PM
This is amazing. March 23, 2017 08:12 PM
I’m sorry, Twitter cannot capture the public access amazingness that is occurring now. I promise to put in in Reporter’s Notebook. March 23, 2017 08:13 PM
Lots of breaking eggs. Trust is like an egg. When it is broken, it’s broken. That’s kind of the chorus. March 23, 2017 08:15 PM
Ah! I thought that last egg was going to make it! March 23, 2017 08:21 PM
“This is a game of green eggs and sham” #iloveher March 23, 2017 08:22 PM
Sorry, I remain impartial. But that was an amazing punchline to the egg video. March 23, 2017 08:23 PM
Okay! Now we are moving on to a very dramatic stripping of the diorama. WITH A SOUNDTRACK. March 23, 2017 08:25 PM
The soundtrack was metal with Cookie Monster vocals! I think performance art is a grand way to address zoning. March 23, 2017 08:26 PM
So anyway, this lady is against the PUD March 23, 2017 08:27 PM
cubbie9000 "I look away for 30 minutes to grab dinner and do laundry and wat the heck, #atxcouncil? https://t.co/EvelyTMe6g"
@cubbie9000 You missed EVERYTHING March 23, 2017 08:28 PM
“That’s a very hard act to follow” March 23, 2017 08:29 PM
Speaker up now detailing the extensive charrette process. March 23, 2017 08:30 PM
cubbie9000 "#ATXcouncil gives me in equal parts a serious case of both the hives and #fomo. https://t.co/6m1xOoVemE"
@cubbie9000 Don’t worry, Caleb. I will make you watch the video. March 23, 2017 08:36 PM
Need to take a little sanity/editing break. Will be back! March 23, 2017 08:38 PM
So far speakers have been evenly divided for and against, I think. Many neighbors appear to be backing the charrette process. March 23, 2017 08:51 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 9PM

Last speaker advocates housing for people, and encouraging people who are sick of traffic to “get out of their cars and stop being traffic” March 23, 2017 09:11 PM
Last speaker up now! March 23, 2017 09:57 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 10PM

Continuing the brave District 10 tradition, @Alison_Alter votes against extending the meeting past 10:00 pm. March 23, 2017 10:01 PM
Up to the dais. @Alison_Alter about to make a motion. Approval with amendments. March 23, 2017 10:04 PM
Ugh. Lots of amendments here. March 23, 2017 10:15 PM
Double ugh. Rough proportionality! March 23, 2017 10:19 PM
Alter says that under state law can ask $5.6 million in traffic mitigation under rough proportionality. Pro rata about $2M March 23, 2017 10:21 PM
“They took a business risk, that is not our responsibility as a city.” — CM Alter March 23, 2017 10:26 PM
CM Casar up now, saying his goal was to increase affordable housing in D10, asks whether the addition of residential will threaten that. March 23, 2017 10:29 PM
Alter says developer has to prove that it can’t work, they don’t have to prove that their amendments will work. March 23, 2017 10:31 PM
Pool has an amendment on trees March 23, 2017 10:31 PM
At least two of the heritage trees will be transplanted within the PUD, approved by arborist. Will get mitigation credit. March 23, 2017 10:32 PM
Also the tree known as Willie Nelson will be preserved. March 23, 2017 10:34 PM
Also a consult on the rest of the trees. March 23, 2017 10:34 PM
That is a friendly amendment March 23, 2017 10:37 PM
CM Casar is making a substitute amendment. It involves a spreadsheet. March 23, 2017 10:37 PM
Increases aff housing units by 140 percent. Doubles at 60% MFI with half at 2bd. Traffic cap holds. March 23, 2017 10:38 PM
We are entering the compromise zone. #seeyouatmidnight March 23, 2017 10:42 PM
Typically, these attempts to avoid a vote usually end in the originally-proposed vote. March 23, 2017 10:44 PM

Thursday, March 23, 2017 11PM

CM Casar points out one of the main differences in his and Alter’s proposals is that developer is okay with his proposal. Unclear for Alter. March 23, 2017 11:02 PM
Conversation is a little stilted because the mayor is keeping Casar’s motion from being seconded, so it can’t be debated exactly March 23, 2017 11:05 PM
Alter questions the difference between PUD and VMU zoning, I guess. March 23, 2017 11:06 PM
… or at least the aff housing component of it. Which is understandable because the aff. housing regs are Baroque. March 23, 2017 11:17 PM
ericwg "@austinmonitor Byzantine?"
@ericwg I was debating. I thought Baroque made them seem more fanciful, I guess. March 23, 2017 11:20 PM
10.8 % aff housing, and leave the rest to traffic mitigation. That would be 46 units. March 23, 2017 11:31 PM
Basically, unlike other zoning, under PUD zoning, affordable housing can be explicitly required as a way to achieve “superiority” March 23, 2017 11:34 PM
I think that is the first time I have ever heard @MayorAdler raise his voice. March 23, 2017 11:36 PM
@kathietovo establishes that the deal is “selling more floors for affordable housing” or traffic mitigation. March 23, 2017 11:41 PM
.@Alison_Alter now trying to ensure that the trade for more affordable housing is equitable. Is questioning @GregCasar ‘s numbers March 23, 2017 11:43 PM
.@GregCasar again tries to get staff/ developer to explain where the number come from. March 23, 2017 11:44 PM
Staff is saying that they used the Domain as a benchmark. March 23, 2017 11:45 PM
.@Alison_Alter disputes that number, says she can buy a condo nearby at $162,000. March 23, 2017 11:45 PM
