OK, GO AHEAD AND CALL THE REGULAR JANUARY 5TH, 2021 CITY COUNCIL MEETING TO ORDER AND THE FIRST THING IS OUR INVOCATION LED BY OUR CITY PASTOR CLAYTON REED.

LET'S PRAY. OH, DEAR LORD, WE THANK YOU FOR THIS EVENING.

WE THANK YOU FOR OUR TIME TOGETHER OR THIS IS A NEW YEAR.

AND I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD BE WITH THIS PARTICULAR COUNCIL AS THEY WORK THROUGH TONIGHT'S AGENDA, PLANNING FOR THE YEAR, WORKING WITH CITY STAFF.

WE PRAY FOR WISDOM, FOR THE COLLABORATION, FOR PEACE, FOR MERCY AND FOR STRENGTH.

AND I JUST ASK THAT YOU WOULD BLESS THEM INDIVIDUALLY, BLESS THEIR FAMILIES.

TONIGHT, WE LIFT UP COACH DODGE.

WE PRAY THAT YOU WOULD BLESS AND HEAL HIM QUICKLY.

LEDBETTER. I THINK HE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE HIM JOIN US IN ONE OF THE UPCOMING MEETINGS.

BUT I KNOW THAT HE'S GOT A BIG JOB AHEAD OF HIM, SO WE CERTAINLY WILL KEEP HIM IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. NEXT ON THE AGENDA IS OUR SOUTHLAKE BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT, SPRUCE HOME

[3. Southlake Business Spotlight - Spruce Home + Closet]

AND CLOSET. THANK YOU, MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL.

I AM VERY EXCITED TO INTRODUCE TO YOU A BRAND NEW BUSINESS HERE IN TOWN.

IT IS SPRUCE HOME AND CLOSET.

HI, MY NAME'S DAN AND THIS IS MY WIFE, AMY.

WE'RE THE KELLY'S AND THE NEWEST BUSINESS OWNERS IN SOUTHLAKE.

WE JUST OPENED A NEW STORE CALLED SPRUCE HOME + CLOSET.

WE'RE LOCATED RIGHT PARK VILLAGE.

THAT'S RIGHT AND SPRUCE IS ALL ABOUT HOME AND CLOSET AND REFRESHING THOSE AS SEASONS CHANGE, AS TIME CHANGES LIKE CHRISTMAS IS OVER AND THE GLITTER IS GONE AND YOU WANT TO BRING SOMETHING NEW INTO YOUR HOME.

WE OFFER ALL THOSE THINGS TO HELP REFRESH YOUR SPACE AND NOT JUST YOUR YOUR WARDROBE BECAUSE A GOOD DRESS A NEW PIECE OF CLOTHING IS ALWAYS A GOOD THING.

AND WE CAN HELP BRING THAT TO YOU.

THOSE CHANGES THAT YOU MAKE IN YOUR OWN HOME TO YOUR CLOSET ARE ALSO WHAT WE DO HERE AT SPRUCE. SO EVERY TIME YOU COME IN, YOU'LL SEE DIFFERENT DISPLAYS DIFFERENT PRODUCTS.

IT WILL ALWAYS BE A NEAT EXPERIENCE HERE AS WELL AS WE TRY TO PUT A LOT OF FOCUS AND TIME ON OUR DISPLAYS AND BRING CREATIVITY IN THAT YOU CAN COME AND SEE EXPERIENCE AND TAKE THOSE IDEAS TO YOUR OWN HOME AND HOPEFULLY HAVE SOME OF SPRUCE GO HOME WITH YOU.

THAT'S WHAT WE REALLY ARE ABOUT HERE.

YOU CAN FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM @SPRUCEHOMEANDCLOSET.

YOU CAN CALL US ANY TIME AT 880-2580.

BUT MOST OF ALL, WE LOVE YOU TO COME VISIT US.

WE'RE LOCATED AT PARK VILLAGE RIGHT NEXT TO THAT'S RIGHT. OR ACROSS FROM STEEL CITY POPS, ALL IN THE SAME LOCATION YOU'LL FIND US HERE, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

AND WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOUR FACES AND CHAT WITH YOU.

THE COUNCIL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? NO, I JUST HEARD IT WAS THE CUTEST STORE EVER, SO I NEED TO GO OVER THERE AND SPEND..

I THINK COUNCIL MEMBER HUFFMAN'S WIFE HAS ALREADY BEEN THERE, WORD OUT. SO I'M RUNNING A LITTLE BIT BEHIND, BUT I WILL GET IN THERE TO SHOP.

AND HOW EXCITING.

I HEARD IT'S REALLY, REALLY CUTE.

SO LOOKING FORWARD.

AND THEN WE'LL PLAY THIS VIDEO ON OUR SELECT SOUTHLAKE.

YES, MA'AM. SITE AND GIVE THEM SOME GOOD PUBLICITY.

SO. SO THANK YOU FOR DOING THESE.

SO ONE OF THE HABITS I HAVE WITH THEM, WHENEVER WE DO ONE OF THESE, I'LL SHARE THE VIDEO WITH MY WIFE OR TELL HER ABOUT IT.

AND I KID YOU NOT. I CAN'T THINK OF A SINGLE TIME WHERE THE NEXT DAY OR THAT WEEK.

SHE DOESN'T GO THERE AND BECOME A FAN.

FOR EXAMPLE, FRENCHIES.

OR THE COOKIE SHOP OR WHATEVER INTERIOR DESIGNER IN TOWN.

[00:05:01]

THEY'VE BEEN TO OUR HOUSE OR THEY'VE SEEN MY WIFE.

SO I JUST TEXTED MY WIFE TWO DAYS AGO.

SHE SAID, I LOVE THAT NEW SPRUCE PLACE, WHICH SHE HAS BEEN TO TWICE.

OH, WOW. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT SPRUCE WAS.

AND I JUST TEXTED AND SAID, HEY, IS THIS THE STORE? YEAH, IT'S A REALLY NICE PLACE.

I SAY, OKAY, SO THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT.

IT IS BENEFICIAL.

ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY MY PLEASURE.

I THINK THE COUNCIL SUPPORTING SEVERAL OF THE LOCAL BUSINESSES.

I WAS LOOKING AT MY AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD THE OTHER DAY AND I WAS LIKE, I HAVEN'T GONE ANYWHERE IN EIGHT MONTHS.

HOW COULD I POSSIBLY BE SPENDING THAT KIND OF MONEY.

IF MY HUSBAND SAW IT, OH, LORD.

OR SO.

BUT WE'RE HAPPY TO DO IT.

WE'LL BE SHOPPING AT SPRUCE THIS WEEKEND.

SO THANKS. THANK YOU, DANIEL.

THANK YOU. OK, NEXT ON THE AGENDA, WE HAVE AN UPDATE ON A FINANCIAL LITERACY PROGRAM

[4. Financial Literacy Program created by Noah Kann]

CREATED BY ONE OF OUR OWN YOUNG PEOPLE IN SOUTHLAKE.

GENTLEMEN, COME ON DOWN.

HELLO, EVERYONE. HI.

AND I'M THE PRESIDENT OF.

HEY, GUYS, I'M WILL BLOUNT AND I'M THE HEAD OF MARKETING.

I COULD TELL.

GOOD FOR YOU. OK, TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU GOT GOING ON.

OK, SO ABOUT BACK IN MARCH AND APRIL, DURING THE MISS OF THE BEGINNING OF THE COVID PANDEMIC, I WAS TALKING TO MY BROTHER ETHAN, WHO IS STANDING RIGHT NOW, AND WE WERE HONESTLY A LITTLE BIT WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE WE HAD I HAVEN'T SEEN A PANDEMIC IN OVER A HUNDRED YEARS OF THIS MAGNITUDE.

AND SO I WAS UNSURE OF WHAT I COULD DO.

AND SO THERE WAS REALLY FOUR OPTIONS I HAD.

THE FIRST OPTION WAS PANIC.

NOW, THIS WAS SOMETHING I DID BECAUSE I WAS WORRIED.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

AND THE SECOND OPTION WAS PLAY A LOT OF VIDEO GAMES AND EAT JUNK FOOD.

WE HAD TWO EXTRA WEEKS AFTER SPRING BREAK.

AND SO. WE ALL DID THAT.

A THIRD THING WAS ADDRESS THE ISSUE AND FIND A SOLUTION WHICH WOULD ACTUALLY REQUIRE A LOT OF WORK, WHICH IS SOMETHING I DID NOT WANT TO DO AT THE TIME BECAUSE I HAD TWO EXTRA WEEKS OF SPRING BREAK. SO WHY WOULD I HAVE AN INCENTIVE TO KEEP WORKING WHEN I DON'T HAVE TO? AND THEN, OF COURSE, THE FOURTH OPTION WAS SLEEP ALL DAY.

AND I ALSO TOOK THAT A TON.

I REALLY I ENJOY SLEEPING.

AND WHEN I HAVE TIME, I MAY AS WELL.

NOW, UNFORTUNATELY FOR US, WE CHOSE TO DO OPTION C, AND SO THERE ARE FOUR AREAS THAT WE REALLY FOCUSED ON. SO FIRST, WE DEFINE THE FOCUS AREA.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT HERE? THE SECOND IS WE CONDUCTED RESEARCH AND INTERVIEWS, SO I WOULD GO ONLINE AND LOOK WELL, WE FIGURED OUT WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING WITH FINANCIAL LITERACY, BUT I CAN'T FIX THE DOW JONES. I CAN'T FIX THE US ECONOMY.

SO I HAVE TO REALLY NARROW MY SEARCH AND EXACTLY WHAT I'M DOING.

AND SO THAT IS WHAT WE DID.

I CONDUCTED INTERVIEWS WITH SOME PEOPLE AT SOME REALLY BIG WALL STREET FIRMS. AND SO FROM THERE I MOVED FORWARD AND IDENTIFIED THE ROOT CAUSES.

NOW THE ROOT CAUSES ARE THAT FINANCIAL LITERACY IS NOT TAUGHT AT A BASIC LEVEL AND MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOLS. AND SO WE SAW THIS AS AN ISSUE.

AND SO WE ASSESSED OUR OPTIONS.

AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE IN FRONT OF YOU TODAY.

SO AND IF YOU SEE UP HERE, THERE'S A GRAPH NOW, INGREDIENTS IN FRIED CORN DOGS IS NOT NECESSARILY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEED TO KNOW.

AND ON AVERAGE, YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW A LOT ABOUT IT.

VIDEO GAMES, TEENAGERS KNOW A LOT ABOUT ONE ON ITS RELATIVE IMPORTANCE SCALE.

IT'S NOT ACTUALLY THAT HIGH.

TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL WE KNOW A LOT ABOUT AND IT IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT.

FINANCIAL LITERACY IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT, BUT WE DON'T REALLY KNOW A LOT ABOUT IT AS HIGH SCHOOLERS. NOW, ADULTS MAY KNOW WAY, WAY, WAY MORE THAN WE DO, BUT IF WE START AT A YOUNGER AGE, THEN WE WON'T HAVE THIS KIND OF FINANCIAL CRISIS WHERE OVER 40 MILLION PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR JOBS AS WELL AS THEIR BASIC RETIREMENT FUNDS BECAUSE THEY WILL HAVE SAVED UP THEIR MONEY BEFORE AND SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

SO WE HAVE A FOUR PRONGED APPROACH.

THE FIRST IS THE CARROLL INVESTMENT CLUB.

WE INVITE LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS TO SHARE STORIES ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS CAREERS AND EXPLAIN WHAT THEY DID, BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS BEST WHEN YOU BRING IN THE PEOPLE THAT EVERYONE CAN RELATE TO.

AND SO WHEN YOU CAN RELATE TO THE PERSON, YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THEM.

AND SO IT IS A MUCH EASIER CHANCE OF YOU COMPREHENDING AND AGREEING WITH WHAT THEY'RE SAYING. THE SECOND APPROACH IS A SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM.

OUR GOAL IS TO REACH OUT AND DEVELOP PARTNERSHIPS WITH OTHER SCHOOLS ACROSS THE STATE OF TEXAS AND GIVE THEM A FREE COLLABORATIVE CURRICULUM THAT WE HAVE CREATED WITH THE HELP OF

[00:10:02]

SOME PEOPLE AT HARVEY MUDD AS WELL AS HARVARD.

AND SO THAT WILL GIVE US ACCESS TO SPREADING WHAT WE BELIEVE COULD BE VERY HELPFUL.

THE THIRD THING IS CALLED THE REVISED NOW ALLIANCE.

THIS IS A PARTNERSHIP WITH UPLIFT NORTH HILLS INNOVATIVE STUDENT RUN TUTORING MODEL.

AND SO THAT ALLOWS STUDENTS TO EMPOWER THEMSELVES INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM BECAUSE IT TEACHES LEADERSHIP.

WHEN YOU'RE A STUDENT AND YOU ARE LOOKING FOR LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES, WHY NOT TUTOR OTHER STUDENTS? SO YOU'RE HELPING YOURSELF LEARN THE MATERIAL AS WELL AS OTHER STUDENTS AND SO EVERYBODY CAN WIN.

NOW, OUR FOURTH APPROACH IS A GRANT FUND.

WE ARE FUND RAISING MONEY AND WE HAVE DONE DECENTLY WELL SO FAR.

AND WE WANT TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO CREATE LOCAL BUSINESSES.

NOW, WHAT THEY WOULD DO IS THEY WOULD SUBMIT A FULL BUSINESS PLAN.

AND WITH THIS MONEY, THEY WOULD HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE A POTENTIAL BUSINESS IN SOUTHLAKE WITH THE HELP OF ADULTS OF COURSE.

NOW THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE CURRICULUM, AND WE ARE ALWAYS OPEN TO FEEDBACK AND IDEAS AND INSPIRATION BECAUSE THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS KNOWING TOO MUCH.

THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE.

AND SO THESE ARE SOME OF THE BASIC CONCEPTS THAT WE'VE COVERED.

AND WE ARE GOING TO BE POSTING VIDEOS ON OUR WEBSITE OF US EXPLAINING THESE IN POWERPOINTS AND PRESENTATIONS.

NOW, THERE ARE THREE MAIN PEOPLE I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO THANK TWO OF THEM ARE IN THIS ROOM, ONE OF THEM IS NOT HERE TODAY.

THE FIRST IS MR. MARK GILBERT, WHO IS SITTING RIGHT THERE, WHO HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC IN HELPING US. AND I'M INCREDIBLY APPRECIATIVE.

THE SECOND IS MR. SHAWN MCCASKILL, THE MAYOR PRO TEM, WHO HAS ALSO BEEN AMAZING AND GIVING US YOU KNOW, HE IS THE REASON WE'RE HERE TODAY.

AND SO I'M VERY, VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY.

AND THEN THE THIRD PERSON IS MR. SANJAY CHANDRA, WHO IS DOWN IN FLORIDA ON A BUSINESS VENTURE RIGHT NOW.

BUT HE'S THE OTHER PERSON THAT WE ARE REALLY, REALLY APPRECIATIVE OF.

NOW, WE RESPECTFULLY HAVE TWO ASKS.

THE FIRST ASK IS THAT IF IT IS POSSIBLE, IF YOU COULD WRITE A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION ENDORSING OUR CLUB.

NOW, WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, WHEN WE GO TO OTHER CITIES AND OTHER SCHOOLS, BEING ENDORSED BY A CITY OF SOUTHLAKE CARRIES SOME WEIGHT THAT REALLY HAS MEANING BEHIND IT BECAUSE IT'S A GOOD CITY WITH A GOOD REPUTATION.

THE SECOND THING WE ASK IS FOR LOCAL BUSINESSES TO SHARE THEIR STORIES WITH CARROLL STUDENTS. WE REALLY WANT TO SHARE WHAT WE'RE DOING BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IT'S IMPORTANT TO TEACH PEOPLE ABOUT FINANCIAL LITERACY.

THANK YOU. GREAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ANYONE IN COUNCIL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? MR. MCCASKILL, DID YOU WANT TO SAY ANYTHING? WELL, I THINK NOAH SUMMED IT UP REALLY WELL.

THEY'VE DONE ALL THE WORK THEMSELVES.

I'VE JUST TRIED TO HELP WITH IDEAS OR NAMES, INCLUDING MIMI TRAN AT FROST BANK AND MARK JONES AT FIRST FINANCIAL BANK WHO ARE ON BOARD.

SO THEY'VE GOT A GOOD ROSTER OF LOCAL BUSINESS LEADERS WHO ARE HELPING THEM OUT.

SO THEY'VE DONE ALL THE HEAVY LIFTING THEMSELVES.

AND I'M JUST HAPPY TO BE A PART OF IT AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING WHAT THEY DO WITH IT NEXT. GREAT.

THANK YOU. COUNCIL MEMBER PATTON, HE'S OUR FINANCIAL WHIZ UP HERE OR SO HE MAY HAVE SOME.

I GAVE HIM YOUR NAME AS WELL CHAD.

SO, YEAH, THAT'S WHO YOU NEED TO TALK TO.

WELL, I HAVE TO TELL YOU, IT'S AWFULLY IMPRESSIVE TO SEE WHAT YOU GENTLEMEN ARE DOING, AND I'M THANKFUL THAT YOU'RE DOING IT.

I HAVE THIS DISCUSSION ALMOST EVERY SINGLE DAY WITH FOLKS, AND IT'S ALL ABOUT MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS EARLIER IN LIFE.

THE SOONER YOU CAN MAKE THOSE RIGHT DECISIONS, THE EASIER LIFE BECOMES FOR YOU FROM A FINANCIAL PERSPECTIVE AND CREATES MORE OPTIONS.

AND OPTIONS FOR WHAT WE ALL WANT IN LIFE.

RIGHT. AND SO I REALLY RESPECT WHAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING.

IF THERE'S ANYTHING WE CAN DO, WE WOULD CERTAINLY BE DELIGHTED TO HELP YOU THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS. THANK YOU.

YEAH, I WOULD ALSO ADD IN YOU GUYS ARE SPOT ON.

THIS IS FANTASTIC.

I LOVE YOUR GOALS ARE VERY PRECISE AND SPECIFIC AND MEASURABLE.

AND YOU TALK ABOUT FINANCIAL LITERACY.

I THINK THAT'S THE KEY PIECE HERE IS KIDS LEARNING ABOUT IT AND LEARNING ABOUT MISTAKES TO AVOID AND GOOD DECISIONS TO MAKE.

IT'S INTERESTING THAT YOU'RE SPEAKING TO US TONIGHT.

I WAS READING AN ARTICLE JUST EARLIER TODAY.

I WON'T TRY TO FIND IT BECAUSE IF I CAN, I'LL SEND IT TO YOU.

BUT IT WAS TALKING ABOUT IF YOU INVESTED TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS AND IT WAS BACK SOMETIME AROUND THE LATE EIGHTIES AND IF YOU IF YOU KEPT IT IN THE ENTIRE TIME, IT WAS NOW WORTH EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

IF YOU MISSED JUST TEN DAYS BEING IN THE MARKET, MEANING YOU TRIED TO TIME IT AND ALL THAT AND YOU MISSED JUST, JUST TEN OF THE BEST DAYS, IT DROPPED DOWN TO LIKE FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND AND THEY DID ALL THESE STEPS.

IT SHOCKED ME THAT IF YOU MISSED ONLY THE TOP 50 DAYS BETWEEN THE LAST THIRTY YEARS, THE TOP 50 DAYS IN THE MARKET, YOUR TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR INVESTMENT WAS WORTH ABOUT FOURTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS AS OPPOSED TO 850000 HAD YOU JUST LEFT IT ALONE? THAT'S FINANCIAL LITERACY AND LEARNING.

SO THAT'S THAT'S COOL THAT KIDS ARE GOING TO LEARN THAT NOW.

SO, YEAH, I THINK IT'S FANTASTIC WHAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING AT A QUESTION.

IS IT ARE YOU GUYS FINDING IT EASY OR HARD OR CHALLENGING TO GET MEMBERS IN YOUR CLUB?

[00:15:02]

MEMBERSHIP IS HARDER THAN EXPECTED BECAUSE I THINK IT'S A VERY COMPLICATED TOPIC.

AND SO PEOPLE DON'T NECESSARILY UNDERSTAND IT IN THE BEGINNING, LIKE, LET'S SAY A MATH CLUB, YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY LEARNS ALGEBRA ONE, EVERYBODY LEARNS GEOMETRY.

BUT THEN YOU SAY, WELL, IF YOU CAN GO INTO COMPLICATED TOPICS LIKE ECONOMICS CENTRAL LIMIT THEOREM, YOU KNOW, IF I SAY THAT TO SOMEBODY, THEY'RE GOING TO LOOK AT ME LIKE I'M CRAZY. RIGHT.

AND SO THAT'S THE KIND OF THING THAT WE HAVE TO REALLY THINK ABOUT IS HOW DO WE MARKET SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT, BUT IT'S NOT VERY WELL DISCUSSED IN HIGH SCHOOL. WELL, IT'S NOT SUPER EXCITING, RIGHT? IT'S.

YEAH, BUT HUGELY IMPORTANT.

ARE YOU FINDING ARE THERE OTHER SIMILAR CLUBS IN THE METROPLEX OR ARE YOU GUYS FAIRLY UNIQUE OR.

SO THE FOUR.

I MEAN, QUICKLY. SO WHAT? THERE ARE OTHER CLUBS IN THE METROPLEX AND ACTUALLY WE WERE OFFERED TO BE, I GUESS, TAKEN OVER BY A NATIONAL PROGRAM, BUT WE DECLINED BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT THEIR MODEL DOESN'T FIT WITH US. THEY JUST WANT TO HAVE CLUBS IN SCHOOLS AND, YOU KNOW, BUILD THIS REALLY FANCY RESUME.

BUT OUR GOAL IS TO CHANGE THE LIVES OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY IN LOWER INCOME COMMUNITIES. SO WE ARE WORKING WITH SOME NONPROFIT CREATORS DOWN IN TEXAS AND THE SOUTH TEXAS, SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE WE REALLY WANT TO CHANGE THE DYNAMIC OF THESE LOWER INCOME COMMUNITIES AND MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THEY GO OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL, THEY KNOW THAT, HEY, THESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY HELPED US.

THEY DIDN'T FORGET ABOUT US.

THAT'S FANTASTIC. THANK YOU.

WOW. I LOVE THIS IDEA.

WE HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS.

I KEEP SAYING YOUNG DAUGHTERS.

ONE JUST TURNED 16.

AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSONS THAT I CONTINUE TO HARP ON IS THE VALUE OF THINKING BEYOND INCOME, THE VALUE OF THINKING BEYOND JOB.

AND I THINK IT'S YOU KNOW, YOU HIT ON A POINT THAT I FOUND NOT MORE THAN A YEAR AGO.

UNFORTUNATELY, IN AN AFFLUENT COMMUNITY, LIKE SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF PARENTS DON'T THINK IT'S INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR THEIR KIDS TO LEARN THIS STUFF.

THEY THINK IN TERMS OF GETTING INTO A GOOD COLLEGE, YOU'RE GOING TO GET A GOOD JOB.

YOU CAN HAVE A GREAT CAREER.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE DISCONNECT THERE IS MOST PEOPLE AREN'T LIVING IN SOUTHLAKE JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE A GREAT JOB OR A GOOD INCOME.

THEY MAKE GREAT INVESTMENTS.

AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE IS, YOU KNOW, WE TALK TO OUR DAUGHTERS NOT JUST ABOUT FINANCIAL LITERACY, BUT THE IMPORTANCE OF ASSETS, THE IMPORTANCE OF OWNERSHIP.

AND SO I LOVE WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

AND I THINK IT'S A TREMENDOUS FIRST STEP AND PLEASE DON'T BE DISCOURAGED FROM FINDING THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE AREN'T WILLING TO SIGN UP BECAUSE WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS THE RIGHT THING. AND I ALWAYS REMIND PEOPLE I WAS A SCIENCE MAJOR AND ALBERT EINSTEIN ONCE SAID, OR AT LEAST IT'S ATTRIBUTED TO HIM, THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT FORMULA IN THE WORLD IS COMPOUNDING INTEREST.

AND THAT IS TRUE.

AND AS RANDY TOUCHED ON A SECOND AGO, IF YOU CAN, YOU KNOW, FIND A WAY TO FOREGO EXPENDITURES AND MAKE THAT EXPENDITURE AN ASSET INSTEAD AND STAY IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL.

AND YOU GUYS STARTING YOUNG IS WHAT IS GOING TO IMPRESS UPON PEOPLE THE NEED TO DO THAT AND THE VALUE. SO THANK YOU FOR DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

THANK YOU, SIR. YEAH.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE YOU HAVE TO CONVINCE KIDS WITH SOME FUN SLOGAN LIKE DON'T HAVE MORE MONEY THAN YOUR PARENTS WHEN YOU GROW UP.

I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, RIGHT.

BECAUSE THEY'RE SAYING GENERATIONALLY THAT THE NEXT GENERATION WILL NEVER HAVE THE SAME FINANCIAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THEIR FAMILY.

SO I THINK WHEN YOU MAKE IT COMPETITIVE OR MAKE IT KIND OF FUN, PEOPLE, KIDS, KIDS GET IT, BUT THE THRESHOLD IS TO GET, YOU KNOW, GET PEOPLE TO WALK IN THE DOOR AND NOT FEEL STUPID LIKE THEY SHOULDN'T BE THERE OR WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING HERE? KIND OF LIKE THAT CONCEPT OF, YOU KNOW, WHAT TECH FOR DUMMIES AND, YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE SERIES OF BOOKS TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL LIKE, YOU KNOW, OK, WELL, WE'RE ALL DUMB ABOUT THIS, BUT LET'S FIGURE IT OUT TOGETHER.

SO, YEAH, THAT'S REALLY.

AND THE OTHER PROBLEM I THINK YOU HAVE IN A COMMUNITY LIKE OURS, QUITE FRANKLY, IS THE PARENTS ARE STILL PAYING THEIR KIDS' BILLS.

AND SO KIDS DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT IT'S JUST GOING TO STOP ONE DAY AND THEY'RE GOING TO BE 26 AND MAYBE THEY HAVEN'T INVESTED A DIME IN A ROTH KNOW, OR MONEY MARKET ACCOUNT OR ANY INVESTMENT IN STOCKS WHATSOEVER.

AND THAT'S REALLY TOO LATE TO GET STARTED.

I MEAN, NOT TOO LATE, OBVIOUSLY, BUT IF YOU WANT TO HAVE MAJOR WEALTH, YOU HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF LUCK ALONG THE WAY IF YOU DON'T START INVESTING REALLY EARLY.

YOU KNOW, NOT TO BELABOR THE POINT, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS WE TOLD OUR DAUGHTERS AT AROUND 10 AND 12 OR EIGHT AND 10 THAT IF I HAD ALL THE CANDY, THE MONEY I SPENT ON CANDY.

RIGHT. BY THE TIME I WAS 25.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE DON'T ALLOW THEM TO, YOU KNOW, FOR YEARS THEY COULDN'T WATCH TV.

AND THEY'RE VERY LIMITED IN WHAT THEY CAN EAT.

AND WE GIVE THEM MONEY.

THEY HAVE TO INVEST IT AND THEY GET TO SEE THE STOCK.

YOU KNOW, THEY LOVE SEEING THE TESLA, THEIR APPLE, THAT'S THEIR STOCK AND THEIR MONEY.

AND SO TO THEM, THEY'RE ALREADY THINKING ABOUT NOT JUST CAREER.

[00:20:01]

THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT, OK, WELL, WHAT ASSETS CAN I HAVE? HOW CAN I OWN SOMETHING? I'M LIKE, YES, THINK BEYOND JOB.

SO THANK YOU FOR DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

OR COURSE. GREAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE APPRECIATE IT.

AND WE'LL TALK TO STAFF.

AND OBVIOUSLY, WHEN WE PUT OURSELVES IN A SITUATION WHERE WE WOULD ENDORSE SOMETHING, IT MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE APPROPRIATE FOR THE CITY TO DO IT.

MAYBE IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S MORE APPROPRIATE FOR THE MAYOR TO DO.

BUT I'LL HAVE WE'LL HAVE THAT CONVERSATION WITH CITY STAFF.

AND OBVIOUSLY, WE WANT WE ALWAYS PUT OUR NAME ON THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO BE REALLY, REALLY SURE WHAT THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS LONG TERM FOR THAT ORGANIZATION.

SO WE'LL CERTAINLY HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THAT.

THANK YOU. OK, THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN.

I APPRECIATE IT. I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND JOB, FELLAS.

GOOD JOB. SINCE I SEE MR.

[Additional Item]

GILBERT HERE IN THE AUDIENCE, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE CHAMBER? I KNOW YOU GUYS HAVE HAD A TOUGH.

THIS HAS BEEN A TOUGH ROAD WITH COVID AND A LOT OF OUR BUSINESSES WE'RE WORKING WITH ON RECOVERY. SO PLEASE TAKE OPPORTUNITY TO PROMOTE LOCAL BUSINESS.

WELL, THANK YOU. THANK YOU. AND HAPPY NEW YEAR'S, EVERYONE.

WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE 2020 IN THE BOOK, SO BE HONEST WITH YOU.

YEAH, WE'RE VERY OPTIMISTIC THAT AS THIS YEAR PROGRESSES, IT'S GOING TO GET BETTER AND BETTER. OF COURSE, WE DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW THE VACCINE IS GOING TO WORK OUT YET, BUT.

I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE FOR HOW THE CITY HAS RESPONDED DURING ALL THIS CRISIS, WE ALREADY HAVE SUCH A BUSINESS FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHICH WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR.

BUT A LOT OF THE THINGS YOU ALL HAVE DONE THE SOUTHLAKE SAFE.

AND THEN THE GRANT PROGRAM, YOU AND DANIEL CORTEZ DOING ALL THE ZOOM LITTLE WEBINARS WAS EARLY ON JUST TO KEEP THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY KIND OF IN THE LOOP.

AND SO IT'S IN THAT SENSE, I WE HAVE JUST BEEN DELIGHTED AT HOW THAT WORKING RELATIONSHIP AND HOW THIS CITY AND EVERYTHING HAS REALLY PULLED TOGETHER THIS LAST YEAR.

AND SO THE CHAMBER HAS BIG PLANS FOR THIS YEAR IS SOON AS IS SAFELY ALLOWABLE TO GO BACK TO FULL SWING.

WE ARE HAVING A LIVE IN PERSON LUNCHEON THIS MONTH AND WE OFFER A HYBRID OPTION FOR THOSE THAT ARE NOT READY FOR IT, BUT WE'RE TIP TOEING OUR WAY BACK INTO TRYING TO GET TO BE A BEST SERVICE WE CAN TO OUR MEMBERS AND GET OUR VALUE PROPOSITION BACK, BECAUSE WHEN WE'RE NOT HOLDING ANY FUNCTIONS, PEOPLE AREN'T REALLY MOTIVATED TO, YOU KNOW, KIND OF KEEP THEIR MEMBERSHIP UP.

YEAH, IT'S REALLY HARD TO NETWORK RIGHT NOW.

I WAS HAVING THIS CONVERSATION WITH MY MIDDLE CHILD THE OTHER DAY BECAUSE HE CAME TO WORK FOR OUR FAMILY BUSINESS IN APRIL WHEN HE WAS HE WAS ON THE SKI SLOPES IN FRANCE WHEN HE GOT TOLD YOU HAVE TO COME HOME AND GET A REAL JOB.

AND SO, YEAH.

SO ONE OF HIS FIRST IDEAS WAS TO JOIN THE CHAMBER.

AND I WAS JUST TELLING HIM THE OTHER DAY, I SAID, HAVE YOU EVEN GONE TO ANY EVENTS? AND HE WAS LIKE, COME ON, THEY'RE STILL OFFERING STUFF.

YOU GOT TO JUMP IN THERE.

BUT BUT BUT IT'S HARD WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE OR ANY PEOPLE, REALLY.

AND YOU'RE HAVING TO DO IT ON ZOOM.

NOT NSO MUCH IN PERSON.

AND SO I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF BUSINESSES OUT THERE THAT ARE IN THE SAME POSITION AS MY SON, WHERE HE'S READY TO GET INVOLVED.

BUT IT'S JUST HE'D LIKE TO KNOW A FEW PEOPLE IN PERSON BEFORE HE JUMPS ON HIS ZOOM CALL.

SO HOW IS YOUR MEMBERSHIP DOING? WELL, I'M NOT GOING TO LIE, I MEAN, IT'S BEEN CHALLENGING FOR US BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE HAVE HAD TO MAKE SOME VERY DIFFICULT DECISIONS FOR THEIR BUSINESSES.

AND SO WE'RE NOT LIKE THE RENT.

YOU DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO PAY US EACH MONTH.

SO WE HAVE CONTRACTED ABOUT 15 TO 20 PERCENT OF MEMBERSHIP, BUT WE ARE ATTRACTING A LOT OF NEW BUSINESS STILL.

IT'S PEOPLE THAT ARE SLOW TO RENEW IS KIND OF WHAT WE'VE HAD TO KIND OF REALLY HAD TO DEAL WITH A LOT. BUT LIKE I SAID, I'M VERY CONFIDENT THIS IS GOING TO REBOUND AS SOON AS WE GET JUST A LITTLE BIT FARTHER DOWN THE ROAD.

SO WE'RE STILL WE WERE AT SIX HUNDRED MEMBERS, WE'RE AROUND 500 RIGHT NOW.

YEAH, OK, THAT MAKES SENSE.

WELL, AND IT'S EMBARRASSING, I THINK, FOR BUSINESSES WHEN THEY'RE NOT ABLE TO PAY THE MEMBERSHIP ON TIME.

AND IT'S EASIER TO JUST GIVE UP THE MEMBERSHIP FOR A YEAR THAN TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT.

YOU KNOW, YOUR PEERS, PEOPLE YOU SEE ALL THE TIME IN TOWN, MAYBE KNOWING THAT YOU AREN'T ABLE TO SPEND THAT MONEY.

IT'S LIKE ADVERTISING RIGHT THERE.

IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU IT'S REAL EASY TO SAY I DON'T NEED IT RIGHT NOW, BUT I THINK YOU'LL SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE COME BACK.

AND WE CERTAINLY UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE TO MAKE DIFFICULT DECISIONS AND WE'RE HERE TO HELP THEM. AND SO WHATEVER THAT LOOKS LIKE, IF THEY WANT TO COME BACK IN SIX MONTHS, WE'LL BE READY WHEN THEY'RE READY. YEAH.

YEAH, THAT'S GREAT.

THAT'S GREAT. ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? GOOD. WELL, THANKS FOR COMING DOWN TONIGHT.

THANKS FOR SUPPORTING THE YOUNG MEN AND.

I LOVE CHEERING ON FUTURE BUSINESS PEOPLE OF AMERICA.

OH, GOOD. THANKS FOR THE UPDATE.

THANK YOU MARK.

[5. Updates to the City of Southlake Public Hearing Notification Process]

[00:25:01]

NEXT ON THE AGENDA.

WE HAVE AN UPDATE TO THE CITY OF SOUTHLAKE PUBLIC HEARING NOTIFICATION PROCESS.

JAROD, THANK YOU.

GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, APOLOGIES FOR THE DELAY THERE.

I'M HERE TO PRESENT THE PROPERTY OWNER NOTIFICATION PROCESS.

YOU MAY RECALL ABOUT A YEAR AGO WE STAFF CAME BEFORE YOU WITH A PROPOSAL TO IMPROVE THIS NOTIFICATION PROCESS.

AND WE'RE GOING TO PROVIDE SOME UPDATES ON WHERE WE'RE AT WITH THIS PROJECT AND KIND OF WHEN OUR GO LIVE IS ANTICIPATED TO BE.

NOT GOING TO SPEND AS MUCH TIME THIS ROUND ON SOME OF THE LOGISTICS AND IN THE WHY AND THE COST SAVINGS PIECE. BUT JUST TO KIND OF REITERATE, THE GOAL OF THIS EFFORT WAS TO SAVE TIME, MONEY AND ENERGY, ESSENTIALLY AS IT PERTAINS TO SENDING OUR PUBLIC NOTIFICATIONS THAT ARE REQUIRED BY STATE LAW AND OUR CITY ZONING ORDINANCE.

SO WE HAVE A PRETTY LABOR INTENSIVE PROCESS IN PLACE CURRENTLY.

AND WHAT THE GOAL WAS TO COME UP WITH A GAS BASED SOLUTION THAT WAS AN IMPROVEMENT IN THE PROCESS THAT WOULD REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF ERROR POTENTIAL, REDUCE COST AND GIVE STAFF SOME TIME BACK SO THEY CAN FOCUS ON OTHER EFFORTS, SUCH AS STAFF REPORTS AND PREPARING FOR COUNCIL MEETINGS AND SO FORTH.

SO JUST QUICKLY, THIS IS AS I'M SURE ALL OF YOU HAVE AT SOME POINT RECEIVED IN THE MAIL A PUBLIC HEARING NOTIFICATION LETTER THAT WOULD BE SENT BEFORE A PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION MEETING.

AND YOU CAN SEE HERE THERE ARE FOUR SHEETS.

THIS IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT THAT YOU WOULD SEE IN A LETTER.

IN SOME CASES, YOU MAY SEE MORE DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF COMPLEXITY OF THE CASE, THE RENDERINGS OR ELEVATIONS THAT MAY BE THERE.

SO WHAT WE'RE ESSENTIALLY GOING TO BE PROPOSING AS AS WE TALKED ABOUT IN JANUARY OF LAST YEAR, WAS MOVING TO A POSTCARD FORMAT.

AND SO AFTER WORKING WITH GIS INC TO COME UP WITH THE SOLUTION AND HEARING SOME OF THE FEEDBACK FROM THE COUNCIL, PREVIOUSLY THERE WERE SOME DISCUSSIONS ABOUT LOOKING TO SOFTEN THE THE CARDS TO MAKE THEM A BIT MORE USER FRIENDLY AND AND PUT THEM IN MORE LAYMAN'S TERMS, FOR EXAMPLE.

AND SO WE TOOK THAT FEEDBACK AND PROVIDED IT TO GIS INC.

AND THIS IS KIND OF WHAT WE'VE COME UP WITH.

YOU CAN SEE THERE'S SOME EVERGREEN ELEMENTS TO THIS CARD THAT WILL BE ABLE TO KIND OF KEEP, SUCH AS THE ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT, PUBLIC HEARING, NOTICE THE TIME AND THE DATE. THOSE THOSE THINGS I'M SORRY, THE DATE WOULD CHANGE, BUT EVERYTHING ELSE FUNDAMENTALLY STAYS THE SAME.

THE INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE YOU CAN REACH OUT FOR MORE INFORMATION, THE QR CODE, FOR EXAMPLE. SO THIS IS THIS IS WHAT THE POSTCARD LOOKS LIKE AFTER WORKING WITH YOU.

I THINK, AS NOTED, YOU CAN SEE WE'RE GOING TO BE GOING TO A BULK MAIL SYSTEM.

SO RATHER THAN STAFF RUNNING THESE CARDS THROUGH OUR OWN MACHINE DOWN IN THE BASEMENT, WE'LL BE TAKING THEM TO BLACKMAIL AND THEY'LL BE SENDING THEM OFF ON OUR BEHALF.

AND SO THERE'S GOING TO BE QUITE A BIT OF COST SAVINGS JUST IN TERMS OF POSTCARDS COSTING LESS THAN STANDARD MAIL.

SO REALLY, THE BULK OF TONIGHT'S PRESENTATION AND THE PURPOSE FOR THIS EVENING IS TO TALK ABOUT HOW WE'RE GOING TO IMPLEMENT THIS AND WHAT IT'S GOING TO MEAN FROM A CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT STANDPOINT IN TERMS OF IMPROVING ON COMMUNICATING ABOUT DEVELOPMENT.

SO THIS SLIDE QUICKLY, JUST AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE CITIZEN SURVEY IN 2019, ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN THE CITY IS, ACCORDING TO THE RESIDENTS, IS THAT THEY'RE GIVEN INFORMATION ON DEVELOPMENT.

SO 89 PERCENT FIND THIS TO BE EITHER VERY IMPORTANT OR SOMEWHAT IMPORTANT FROM A SATISFACTION STANDPOINT.

YOU CAN SEE THE IMAGE TO THE RIGHT, ABOUT 70 PERCENT FIND TO FIND THEMSELVES TO BE VERY SATISFIED OR SOMEWHAT SATISFIED WITH INFORMATION ON DEVELOPMENT BEING PROVIDED.

SO THIS ISN'T A GAP ISSUE.

GAP ISSUES WOULD BE WHERE THERE'S A 25 PERCENT GAP THERE, BUT IT'S WHAT I WOULD CONSIDER TO BE A NEAR GAP ISSUE.

SO SOMETHING WE NEED TO KEEP OUR EYE ON, 19 PERCENT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATISFACTION AND

[00:30:01]

IMPORTANCE. KIND OF FURTHER, YOU CAN SEE FROM A DEVELOPMENT STANDPOINT, COMMUNICATION, INFORMATION. YOU CAN SEE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT COMMUNITY EVENTS, BREAKING NEWS, DEVELOPMENT, ROADWAY CONSTRUCTION.

SO THERE'S A SIGNIFICANT INTEREST IN THE COMMUNITY FROM THAT REGARD.

SO KIND OF MOVING INTO THE THE BULK OF TONIGHT'S PIECE, AND I'LL JUST NOTE FOR THE COUNCIL, YOU CAN ACTUALLY SCAN THIS QR CODE IF YOU SO CHOOSE WITH YOUR PHONE.

IT'S AN ACTIVE QR CODE.

I TRIED IT ON MY COMPUTER AND IT WORKED THROUGH THE SCREEN THAT THIS IS A PUBLISHED PAGE THAT HAS BEEN HIDDEN FOR THE SAKE OF STAFF BEING ABLE TO WORK ON THE BACK END.

AND SO YOU CAN YOU CAN SEE FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICE KIND OF WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE FROM THAT INTERFACE IF YOU CHOOSE.

THE IMAGE ON THE LEFT IS IS WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE, KIND OF A FULL SCREEN VIEW OF OUR ACTIVE PLANNING CASES WEB PAGE.

AND SO, AGAIN, SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE WANTED TO DO WAS TO STREAMLINE THE PROCESS OF, YOU KNOW, WE'RE TAKING AWAY THEORETICALLY THE AMOUNT OF PAPER THAT WE'RE SENDING SOMEBODY, BUT OUR JUSTIFICATION IS WE'RE GOING TO GIVE THEM BACK SO MUCH MORE AND WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE IS YOU CAN SEE THERE'S THESE FOUR KIND OF KEY COMPONENTS TO THIS PAGE.

YOU'VE GOT PUBLIC HEARING NOTICES, MEETING PACKETS, THE INTERACTIVE MAP, AND THEN THE PLANNING AND ZONING CASE INPUT FORM.

AND I'LL KIND OF GO THROUGH THOSE HERE.

SO THIS FIRST PIECE, THE PUBLIC HEARING NOTICES, YOU CAN SEE IN THIS THIS TOP WITH A RED OUTLINE IS FOR PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION AND ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT.

THESE ARE THE MEETINGS THAT WE SEND THESE THESE LETTERS FOR.

AND SO WHAT STAFF IS GOING TO BE DOING IS PREVIOUSLY WE WOULD SEND THE LETTER.

AND IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT WITHIN THE 200 FEET OF THE PLATTED SUBDIVISION, YOU WOULD RECEIVE THAT PHYSICAL MAIL AND THEN YOU WOULD BE AWARE OF WHATEVER IT WAS GOING ON.

NOW, ONE STAFF HAS MOVED THESE ITEMS, SENT THEM IN THE MAIL.

WE'RE ALSO GOING TO BE MOVING THEM OVER INTO THE WEB SITE AND SAVING THEM INTO OUR ONTO OUR WEB PAGE SO THAT ANYBODY THAT IS INTERESTED COULD CLICK AND SEE, OK, FOR THE ONE FIVE OR ONE SEVEN TWENTY ONE MEETING, WHAT NOTICES WERE SENT.

SO SIMILARLY FOR THE BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT, OF COURSE YOU CAN YOU CAN CLICK AND PULL THAT UP AS FAR AS THE MEETING PACKETS GO.

SO WE CURRENTLY USE OUR DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY NEWS BLOG TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS AND PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION MEETINGS.

IT'S BEEN A GREAT TOOL. I THINK PEOPLE HAVE HAVE FOUND IT TO BE USEFUL, BUT WE FIND THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE A BETTER SOLUTION, BECAUSE WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING TO DO IS THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF A DISCONNECT, RIGHT? SO YOU HAVE A CASE THAT GETS SUBMITTED AND FROM SUBMITTAL TO PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION, THERE MAY BE SEVERAL WEEKS.

AND SO SOMEBODY MIGHT REALLY NOT KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.

SO WHAT STAFF IS PROPOSING TO DO IS WHEN THINGS ARE INITIALLY SUBMITTED AND APPROVED BY THE CITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW COMMITTEE, WE WOULD PACKAGE THOSE THINGS UP.

INSTEAD OF JUST DISTRIBUTING THEM INTERNALLY TO STAFF, WE WOULD MOVE IT TO THE WEB SITE SO THAT, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, YOU COULD SEE, OK, FOR THE ONE FIVE TWENTY ONE SUBMITTAL DATE, HERE ARE THE THINGS THAT CAME IN TO THIS THE PLANNING STAFF. ANYBODY CAN JUST CLICK ON IT AND SEE.

FROM A ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT STANDPOINT, THIS IS KIND OF ONE OF THOSE BOARDS THAT THINGS HAPPEN THERE AND YOU MAY NOT BE AWARE OF IT.

AND, YOU KNOW, THEY HAVE A VERY NICHE SPECIFICITY.

BUT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO START MOVING THE PACKET INFORMATION FROM THE ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT ONLINE AS WELL, WHICH IS CURRENTLY NOT BEING DONE SUCH THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE INTERESTED CAN CLICK AND THEY CAN SEE.

SO THAT'S THAT'S A PROPOSAL.

YOU CAN SEE THE DOWN ARROW.

THIS IS OUR LASERFICHE, WHICH IS THE CITY'S KIND OF WAREHOUSE FOR DATA STORAGE.

AND ESSENTIALLY WE HAVE A NUMBER OF STAFF MEMBERS WHO HAVE THE ACCESS THAT CAN SIMPLY JUST MOVE DATA OVER INTO LASERFICHE.

AND THEN IT'S ALL OF A SUDDEN AVAILABLE ONLINE.

VERY, VERY SIMPLE.

AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT A LOT OF OUR DEPARTMENTS ARE USING.

OUR CITY HAS DECIDED THIS IS GOING TO BE THE STORAGE FACILITY DEJOUR.

AND SO WE ALREADY HAVE IT.

LET'S JUST USE IT. SO NOW, INSTEAD OF DATA BEING IN A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT PLACES, ALL DEVELOPMENT CASE INFORMATION IS IN ONE CENTRAL LOCATION.

SO THE ACTIVE PLANNING CASES, INTERACTIVE MAP, THIS IS SOMETHING WHERE WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT AND SO AGAIN WITH THE DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY NEWS BLOG, WHAT WE'VE HAD AND IT WAS EFFECTIVE, BUT WE THINK THIS WILL BE A BETTER TOOL IN ANY CASE, WHETHER D.R.C., PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION OR THE CITY COUNCIL, WE WILL POINT THAT ON THIS MAP.

AND SO SPATIALLY YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE AND YOU CAN TELL THAT THESE ARE COLOR CODED BASED ON WHERE THE ITEM IS IN THE PROCESS.

SO IF IT MOVES FORWARD OR EVEN PERHAPS GETS REMANDED BACKWARDS, THAT STATUS WOULD CHANGE.

YOU COULD THEN CLICK ON THE ITEM AND YOU CAN SEE IF YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE PAGE, YOU CAN CLICK, FOR EXAMPLE, ON ON THIS CASE NUMBER IT'LL ZOOM IN DIRECTLY TO WHERE THAT CASE IS LOCATED. AND YOU CAN SEE SO HERE ON THE SCREEN, IT SAYS AGENDA ITEM SEVEN.

BUT WE'RE GOING TO REVISE THIS TO SAY THE MEETING DATE THAT THAT ITEM WOULD BE PRESENTED.

[00:35:04]

AND SO SOMEBODY CAN THEN GO TO THE MEETING PACKETS FOLDER THAT WE JUST DESCRIBED AND FIND ALL OF THAT PACKET INFORMATION.

SO EVERYTHING IS IN, AGAIN, ONE PLACE.

SO MAYBE THE MOST ROBUST CHANGE TO THE PROCESS AND WE DISCUSSED THIS PREVIOUSLY WITH COUNCIL, BUT JUST TO AGAIN PROVIDE A LITTLE BIT OF AN UPDATE TO THE PLANNING AND ZONING CASE INPUT FORM THE SCREEN CAPTURED ON THE RIGHT KIND OF SHOWS YOU THIS IS BASICALLY WHAT WE'RE GOING TO START DOING IS RECEIVING CASE SUPPORT OR OPPOSITION VIA DIGITAL FORMAT.

SO, AGAIN, SOMEBODY GETS THIS CARD IN THE MAIL.

THEY CAN SCAN IT WITH THEIR PHONE.

THEY GO IMMEDIATELY TO THIS WEB PAGE AND THEY CAN PLUG IN THEIR OPPOSITION OR SUPPORT RIGHT THERE FROM THEIR PHONE.

AND YOU'RE NOT HAVING TO GO FIND A STAMP OR GO TO THE MAILBOX, WHATEVER.

EVERYTHING CAN BE DONE.

EVERYTHING CAN BE DONE RIGHT THERE.

THE ONLY REAL HURDLE WOULD BE UPLOADING A COPY OF YOUR SIGNATURE, WHICH I FIND THAT PROBABLY TO BE EASIER THAN LOCATING A STAMP IN MANY CASES.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT JUST TO PROVIDE KIND OF AN UPDATE, AGAIN, BECAUSE THE COUNCIL HAS SEEN THIS, BUT WE ARE AWARE THAT WE HAVE RESIDENTS THAT ARE IN DIFFERENT PLACES TECHNOLOGICALLY AND WE WANT TO BE RESPECTFUL AND MEET THEM WHERE THEY ARE AT.

AND SO WHAT WE'VE ESSENTIALLY DONE IS SCRUBBED ONE OF OUR NOTIFICATION RESPONSE FORMS AND PUT IT ON OUR WEBSITE AS A BLANK FORM.

AND SOMEBODY COULD THEN THEY COULD GO ON IF THEY WANTED TO.

THEY COULD PRINT IT, FILL IT OUT THAT WAY, SEND IT INTO THE STAFF, AND WE WOULD TREAT IT JUST LIKE AS IF IT HAD COME IN IN ANY OTHER WAY.

PLANNING STAFF WILL ALSO ACCEPT EMAIL, FAX.

SO WE'VE GOT ALL OF OUR SAME CHANNELS IN PLACE.

WE'RE ESSENTIALLY BROADENING OUR SCOPE.

BUT THE IRONY IS THAT IT'S GOING TO MAKE THINGS A LOT EASIER AND COST A LOT LESS MONEY.

SO WE HIGHLIGHTED THIS AGAIN.

JUST TOUCH ON QUICKLY.

WE WILL BE COMING BACK TO THE CITY COUNCIL IN THE FUTURE WITH A PROPOSED ZONING ORDINANCE, TEXT AMENDMENT BASICALLY TO TO REVISE WHAT OUR ZONING CODE STIPULATES FROM A REGULATORY NOTIFICATION STANDPOINT.

CURRENTLY, IT'S 200 FEET.

AND THEN WITHIN THE PLATTED SUBDIVISION, WE'RE PROPOSING JUST A STANDARD 300 FOOT ACROSS THE BOARD BEAUTIFICATION BOUNDARY IN THAT JUST TO AGAIN STREAMLINE THE PROCESS UNTIL THIS ZONING ORDINANCE WERE TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS AND THEN POTENTIALLY BE APPROVED, STAFF WOULD CONTINUE USING THE PROCESS, AS IT IS CURRENTLY STIPULATED IN THE ZONING ORDINANCE.

SO AGAIN, TONIGHT WAS THE WORK SESSION TO PROVIDE JUST AN UPDATE TO THE CITY COUNCIL.

AND HEAR ANY THOUGHTS THAT THAT THE COUNCIL HAS.

FROM A NEXT STEPS STANDPOINT, WHAT WE'LL BE DOING IS WORKING WITH OUR OFFICE OF MARKETING AND COMMUNICATION. OBVIOUSLY, THIS IS A CHANGE.

AND SO WE'LL WANT TO COMMUNICATE IT AND NOT JUST SOMETHING THAT WILL HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.

WE WANT THERE TO BE A ROBUST COMMUNICATION STRATEGY FOR THIS BEFORE GO LIVE, WHICH WE'RE ANTICIPATING TO BE IN MAY OF 2021.

AND PART OF THE REASON FOR THAT GAP IS WE'VE RECEIVED YESTERDAY APPROVAL FROM THE UNITED STATES POST OFFICE.

APPARENTLY THERE'S A LOT MORE TO DESIGNING A POSTCARD THAN YOU WOULD HAVE REALIZED.

I CERTAINLY DID NOT AS FAR AS DIMENSIONS AND MARGINS AND SPACING.

AND THEY'VE ESSENTIALLY GIVEN US THE GREEN LIGHT FOR THE POSTCARD DESIGN AND SAID THAT IT WOULD WORK WITH THEIR SYSTEMS. SO WE WILL BEGIN TO PRINT THOSE AND RUN INTERNAL TESTING WITH OUR STAFF AND POTENTIALLY EVEN SEND THE COUNCIL MEMBERS A POSTCARD JUST TO SEE HOW IT WORKS.

AND THEN WE'LL LOOK TO DO THE ORDINANCE AMENDMENT IN THE FUTURE, POSSIBLY SOMETIME IN THE SUMMER OF 2021.

AND WITH THAT, I WILL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

GREAT WORK, COUNCIL, ANY QUESTIONS? NO QUESTION. JUST COMMENT THAT I AGREE WITH THE MAYOR.

IT'S FANTASTIC, REALLY PUTTING US INTO THE NEXT MILLENNIUM HERE IN TERMS OF OUR ABILITY TO DELIVER GREAT CONTENT EASILY.

SO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.

AND I LOVE THE COLOR CODING OF WHERE IT IS IN THE PROCESS.

I THINK THAT'S SO EASY FOR PEOPLE TO SPOT ON THE MAP.

THEY JUST WANT TO SIT AT HOME AND LOOK AT THE INFORMATION.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, IF THEY CAN'T FIND IT EASILY, YOU KNOW, THEN THEY GO ON FACEBOOK AND GET ON THESE DUMB KNOW BETTER. BUT, YOU KNOW, OF COURSE, THAT'S NOT REALLY WHAT THE ISSUE IS AS.

SO I THINK TO BE ABLE TO JUMP IN WITH A LINK TO TAKE PEOPLE TO THE INFORMATION THAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR.

ONE THING I'LL SAY ABOUT THIS, ABOUT COVID-19, IS I THINK GENERATIONALLY EVERYONE HAS REALIZED THAT TECH IS SO IMPORTANT TO WHATEVER DEGREE YOU'RE COMFORTABLE, YOU KNOW, I

[00:40:05]

MEAN, MY 87 YEAR OLD MOTHER IS SITTING AT HOME TONIGHT HITTING THE REFRESH BUTTON BECAUSE SHE WANTS THE LATEST UPDATE FROM DENTON COUNTY WHERE SHE CAN GET HER SHOT.

AND I THINK PEOPLE HAVE REALIZED THAT THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION THERE AND MAKING IT EASY FOR THEM TO GET IT IS WHAT'S SO IMPORTANT, BECAUSE IF THEY CAN GET THE INFORMATION, THEN THEY YOU KNOW, WE'RE TRANSPARENT.

WE'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING SHADY.

WE TREAT EVERYBODY EVERY DEVELOPMENT THE SAME.

BUT PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THAT BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT DIALED IN UNTIL SOMETHING REALLY AFFECTS THEM OR THEY HAVE AN OPINION ON AN ISSUE.

AND THEN RIGHT AWAY, THEY'RE LIKE, WELL, WAIT A MINUTE, NO ONE TOLD ME.

SO I THINK THIS IS AWESOME.

AWESOME. WELL, THANK YOU, COUNCIL, OF COURSE, FOR PROVIDING US THE DIRECTION TO MOVE FORWARD AND GIVING US THE MEANS TO DO SO.

SO THANK YOU. THANKS.

AND I THINK, DID I SAY A CUSS WORD? I APOLOGIZE. MY GOAL FOR THE NEXT FOUR MONTHS IS NOT TO SAY ANY MORE BAD WORDS.

NO, I DON'T CUSS IN NEW ORLEANS.

I ONLY CUSS HERE.

THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

I APOLOGIZE IF I OFFENDED ANYONE.

I'M SORRY. VERY SORRY.

OK.

BUT I AM GOING TO SAY EVERYTHING I WANT TO SAY FOR THE NEXT FOUR MONTHS.

SO GET READY FOR THE RIDE.

OK, NEXT ON THE AGENDA, WE HAVE THE CONSENT ITEMS THAT WE'LL BE TAKING A VOTE ON WHEN WE

AND NEXT ON THE AGENDA, ITEM 6A.

[6.A. Ordinance No. 480-775, (ZA20-0052), 2nd Reading, Zoning Change and Concept Plan for 2311 Lonesome Dove Rd. on property described as Lot 1, L. Lincoln No. 981 Addition, an addition to the City of Southlake, Tarrant County, Texas and located at 2311 Lonesome Dove Rd., Southlake, Texas. Current Zoning: "AG" Agricultural District. Proposed Zoning: "SF-1 A" Single Family Residential District. Spin Neighborhood #2. PUBLIC HEARING]

GOOD EVENING MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL, ITEM 6A, IS THE APPROVAL OF ZONING CHANGE A CONCEPT PLAN TO ALLOW THE CONSTRUCTION OF ONE RESIDENCE ON THE LOT IN CONFORMANCE WITH SF 1A ZONING DISTRICT PROPERTY IS LOCATED AT 2311 LONESOME DOVE ROAD, FUTURE LAND USE IS LOW DENSITY. THE PROPERTY SUBJECT PROPERTY IS OUTLINED BY THE BLACK LINE AND SHOWN WHERE THERE IS INDICATED.

THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW PROPERTIES LOCATED ON THE EAST SIDE OF LONESOME DOVE THERE WITHIN THE SOUTHLAKE CORPORATE LIMITS.

THIS PROPERTY WAS CREATED BY BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENT AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY OF GRAPEVINE BACK IN MAY OF 2019, WHICH IT CREATED A ESSENTIALLY A ONE ACRE BUILDABLE LOT AND THEN A SEPARATE LOT BACK TO THE EAST WAS ALSO CREATED, WHICH IS IN THE GRAPEVINE CITY LIMITS.

THE ZONING IS AG.

THE PURPOSE OF THE REZONING IS TO ALLOW A BUILDING PERMIT TO BE PULLED TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION FOR THE RESIDENTIAL HOME.

THIS IS AN AREA OF THE PROPERTY.

FOXFIRE IS WITHIN THE CITY OF GRAPEVINE LIMITS, AND THIS IS THE COKER PROPERTY TO THE SOUTH, WHICH WE'VE HAD SOME RECENT DISCUSSIONS ON.

THIS IS A STREET VIEW WHERE THE WHITE PICKUP TRUCK IS LOCATED.

THAT'S FOXFIRE AND THEN LONESOME DOVE IN THE LEFT HAND PORTION OF THE SLIDE.

THIS IS ANOTHER STREET VIEW OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, THIS IS THE CONCEPT PLAN THAT'S BEING PRESENTED TO CITY COUNCIL.

IT DOES SHOW A DRIVEWAY ACCESSING ONTO FOXFIRE AS MENTIONED THE LOT IS IN CONFORMANCE WITH SF-1A ZONING.

IT'S 1.002 ACRES IN SIZE.

SO IT DOES MEET THE SF-1A REQUIREMENTS.

THIS IS A TREE CONSERVATION PLAN.

THE REQUIREMENTS FOR 70 PERCENT OF THE TREE COVER TO BE MAINTAINED.

THEY ARE PRESERVING 100 PERCENT OF THE TREES ON THE SITE.

THIS IS THE DRAINAGE UTILITY PLAN.

THE DRAINAGE IS GENERALLY TO THE EAST OF THE PROPERTY.

THIS IS A PLAT THAT'S BEEN FILED BACK IN 2019.

P&Z RECOMMENDED APPROVAL AND COUNCIL APPROVED ON CONSENT IT'S FIRST READING.

I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

ANY QUESTIONS OF STAFF, ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL ABOUT THIS.

OK, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING.

IS THERE ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO'D LIKE TO SPEAK ABOUT THIS ITEM? SEEING NO ONE, I'LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING IS THERE A MOTION.

YES, MAYOR AND COUNCIL. I MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE ITEM 6A ORDINANCE NUMBER 480-775 CASE NUMBER 20-0052.

SECOND READING ZONING CHANGE AND CONCEPT PLAN FOR 2311 LONESOME DOVE ROAD IN THE CITY OF SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS, SUBJECT TO OUR STAFF REPORT DATED DECEMBER 29TH 2020 AND CONCEPT PLAN REVIEW SUMMARY NUMBER TWO DATED NOVEMBER 12TH, 2020.

IS THERE A SECOND. SECOND. PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE.

THAT ITEM PASSES. SEVEN ZERO.

THANK YOU. CONGRATULATIONS.

NEXT ON THE AGENDA IS

[6.B. Ordinance No. 480-776, (ZA20-0056), 2nd reading, Zoning Change and Concept Plan for 1507 E. Dove Rd. on property described as Tract 4A5, Francis Throop Survey, Abstract No. 1511, Southlake, Tarrant County, Texas and located at 1507 E. Dove Rd., Southlake, Texas. The Concept Plan also includes portions of Tracts 3A and 5D1A, Francis Throop Survey, Abstract No. 1511, currently zoned "SF-1A" Single Family Residential District, on property located at 1515 E. Dove Rd. Current Zoning of Tract 4A5: "AG" Agricultural District. Proposed Zoning of Tract 4A5: "SF-1A" Single Family Residential District. SPIN Neighborhood #4. PUBLIC HEARING]

ITEM 6B.

MAYOR, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL ITEM SIX B IS ALSO A SECOND READING REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF A ZONING CHANGE AND A CONCEPT PLAN TO REZONE A PORTION OF PROPERTY FROM AG TO SF-1A.

THIS PROPERTY IS LOCATED 1507 DOVE ROAD.

[00:50:02]

FUTURE LAND USE PLAN IS LOW DENSITY.

THERE IS PORTION OF THE PROPERTY WHICH IS WITHIN THE 100 YEAR FLOOD PLAIN.

THE ACTION IS TO ALLOW THE COMBINATION OF A PORTION OF THE LOT BACK TO THE EAST INTO A SINGLE TRACK IN ORDER TO BE PLATTED AND HAVE CONSISTENT SF-1A ZONING THROUGHOUT THE PROPERTY. THE CURRENT ZONING OF THE PROPERTY WHICH IS OUTLINED IN BLUE IS THE AG PORTION, AND THAT TO THE EAST IS ALREADY ZONED SF-1A YOU CAN SEE THE PROPOSED CONFIGURATION ON THE INSET TO THE RIGHT ON THE LOT.

AND SO THE THIS PORTION OF THE PROPERTY IS PROPOSED BECOME SF-1A AND THEN THEY'LL PLAT THE ENTIRE LOT IF THE ZONING IS GRANTED.

THIS IS AN AERIAL VIEW OF THE PROPERTY.

AGAIN, THE PORTION THAT'S BEING REZONED IS OUTLINED IN BLUE.

THIS IS THE PROPOSED CONCEPT ON THIS NORTH IS TO THE RIGHT.

SO YOU CAN SEE DOVE TO THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE SCREEN.

THE TOTAL ACREAGE WITHIN THE PROPERTY BOUNDARY WOULD BE 1.817 ACRES FOR THE ENTIRE TRACTS WILL BE WELL OVER THE ONE ACRE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT.

THIS IS A STREET VIEW.

THERE IS AN EXISTING HOME ON THE PROPERTY.

AT THIS TIME THERE'S NO PLANS TO REMOVE THAT HOME.

ANY FUTURE DEVELOPMENT WOULD REQUIRE THAT ALL SET BACKS, ZONING REQUIREMENTS, TREE PRESERVATION REQUIREMENTS BE MET IF A BUILDING PERMIT IS IS PULLED FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION.

THIS IS ANOTHER VIEW.

THIS IS FURTHER TO THE EAST AND YOU CAN SEE THE CREEK AREA, WHICH WOULD BE ON THE EASTERN BOUNDARY OF THE SITE.

THIS IS THE PATHWAYS MASTER PLAN.

THERE WILL BE A FIVE FOOT SIDEWALK THAT'S REQUIRED TO BE INSTALLED.

THIS IS THE TREE CONSERVATION PLAN BECAUSE NO CONSTRUCTION IS PROPOSED TO TAKE PLACE IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE. IT DOES MEET THE REQUIREMENT AS ONE HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE TREES WILL BE PRESERVED. THE SITE HAS 66 PERCENT OF THE AREA IS TREE COVERED AND 40 PERCENT IS REQUIRED TO BE PRESERVED.

SO IF A PERMIT DOES COME IN, THEY WILL HAVE TO MEET THAT 40 PERCENT MINIMUM ON THE TREE PRESERVATION. THIS IS THE PRELIMINARY UTILITY PLAN.

IT'LL BE SERVED BY AN EIGHT INCH WATER LINE THAT EXISTS ON EAST DOVE.

AND THERE'S ALSO A SANITARY SEWER MANHOLE JUST ON THE NORTH SIDE OF DOVE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE PROPERTY.

PRELIMINARY DRAINAGE PLAN.

THE DRAINAGE IS BACK TO THE EAST TOWARD THE CREEK AREA.

P&Z RECOMMENDED APPROVAL SIX ZERO.

AND THIS IS ALSO APPROVED UNDER CONSENT AT YOUR DECEMBER MEETING.

I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

ANY QUESTIONS OF STAFF.

ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL. OK, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING.

IS THERE ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO'D LIKE TO SPEAK TO THIS ITEM.

SEEING NO ONE, I'LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING, IS THERE A MOTION.

YES MAYOR AND COUNCIL, I MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE ITEM 6B, ORDINANCE NUMBER 480-776 CASE NUMBER ZA20-0056.

SECOND READING ZONING CHANGE AND CONCEPT PLAN FOR 1507 E DOVE ROAD IN SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS, SUBJECT TO OUR STAFF REPORT DATED DECEMBER 29TH 2020 AND REVISED CONCEPT PLAN REVIEW SUMMARY NUMBER 2 DATED NOVEMBER 20TH, 2020.
