Municipal Development District (MDD) Meeting February 26, 2020 Update

Supporting Documents for Agenda Items can be found HERE.

Attendance:  Present:   President Byron Bevers, Mike Sorich, David Hoover, Ted Fletcher and Ron Raymaker  

ITEM 4:  East Detention Pond Report -   Derek Wind of Bleyl Engineering presented an update on the status of the east side detention pond.  Work continues on the wetlands credit process with the Corps of Engineers.  Wind said the firm completed a hydraulic study of Carter Slough and plans to do some test pumping this summer. Presentation and discussion only.

ITEM 5:    Capital Improvement Plan (5-10 years) -   The draft plan considers future projects that are unfunded or partially funded from the Public Works Department budget.   President Bevers asked for more detail and project justification to be presented at future meetings starting with water and sewer projects next month. He directed staff to focus on the most immediate projects.  Discussion only. 

ITEM 6:    Budgeted Projects -  The MDD Board requested a list of current and carry-over projects that have been funded. Staff asked for Board guidance in the current and carry-over projects.  President Bevers asked staff  to zero out any projects that have not started  or on hold at this time and the Board would discuss how to allocate those funds.  Discussion only. 

ITEM 7:   Toddler Park Parking -  At the request of City Council, staff investigated adding parking on the eastern portion of the park. After applying setbacks, there is adequate spacing for two parking spaces with one being van access handicapped parking at a cost of $35,000-$45,000. Another option presented was to expand the roadway shoulder which would allow additional space for on-street parking. The cost of adding the additional shoulder is estimated to be $10,000-$15,000 The Board expressed concern about pull in parking at the park with the highest estimated cost for two spots, one of which would be van-accessible handicapped parking. The Board discussed removal of trees to facilitate several additional spaces but did not feel park usage justified that. Member Ted Fletcher asked if this project should be referred to the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) for the possibility of a variance which would reduce the ultimate cost of pull in parking.    Discussion only.

ITEM 8:   Minutes of the January 22 Regular Meeting - MDD voted 5-0 to approve the minutes.

ITEM 9: Ratification of January Accounts Payable - MDD ratified the accounts payable by a vote of 5-0.

The meeting had no executive session and ended at 6:30 pm.
