08/27/09 09:16:50 PULL THAT TOGETHER AND GIVE
08/27/09 09:16:51 US
08/27/09 09:16:52 A COMPLETE BUDGET.
08/27/09 09:16:55 I AM NOT SURE
08/27/09 09:16:57 WHEN THAT IS
08/27/09 09:16:57 AVAILABLE.
08/27/09 09:17:00 BONNIE WISE SAID IT IS A MATTER
08/27/09 09:17:02 OF DAYS NOT WEEKS.
08/27/09 09:17:04 I TOLD HER WE SHOULD HAVE IT BY

08/27/09 09:17:07 >> LET ME FOLLOW UP
08/27/09 09:17:07 ON THAT.
08/27/09 09:17:11 >> I TALKED

08/27/09 09:17:22 REQUEST THAT.
08/27/09 09:17:25 AND I WAS NOT ABLE TO

08/27/09 09:17:28 CERTAIN INFORMATION I NEEDED TO
08/27/09 09:17:31 MAKE A SOUND DECISION AND
08/27/09 09:17:34 THEY
08/27/09 09:17:36 FOLLOW THE CHARTERS.
08/27/09 09:17:38 WHEN I REVIEWED THE CHARTERS,
08/27/09 09:17:40 IT HAS TO BE LINE ITEM AND GO
08/27/09 09:17:42 DOWN FURTHER IN THE PARAGRAPH
08/27/09 09:17:45 BECAUSE THE MAYOR HAS
08/27/09 09:17:46 LINE ITEM
08/27/09 09:17:49 VETO, THEREFORE, WE HAVE NOT
08/27/09 09:17:49 LOOKED THAT.
08/27/09 09:17:52 AND I WANT
08/27/09 09:17:55 TO
08/27/09 09:18:01 BE CLEAR ON THAT.
08/27/09 09:18:04 YOU MUST HAVE ALL THE

08/27/09 09:18:10 THEREFORE, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT
08/27/09 09:18:12 YOU GET ALL THE INFORMATION AND
08/27/09 09:18:14 THAT'S WHY I FORWARDED A LETTER
08/27/09 09:18:17 TO THE ADMINISTRATION TO
08/27/09 09:18:18 PROVIDE THE INFORMATION AND OF
08/27/09 09:18:20 COURSE, THEY HAVE AGREED TO DO
08/27/09 09:18:22 THAT AND THAT WAS ME
08/27/09 09:18:24 CONVERSATION WITH DARRELL

08/27/09 09:18:55 DIDN'T NEED TO SEE THAT.
08/27/09 09:18:57 >> JUST FIGURE THE BOOK WAS

08/27/09 09:35:58 TERRIBLE LOTTERY NUMBERS.
08/27/09 09:36:00 WE DON'T THINK THEY ARE GOING
08/27/09 09:36:02 TO GET FUNDING.
08/27/09 09:36:04 IT IS HEARTBREAKING TO ME.
08/27/09 09:36:07 THREE YEARS IN A ROW WE HAVE
08/27/09 09:36:09 SUBMITTED COMPETITIVE

08/27/09 09:36:17 EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE
08/27/09 09:36:18 CHALLENGED WE WERE ABLE TO
08/27/09 09:36:21 STAND WITH A STRONG APPLICATION
08/27/09 09:36:24 AND THE MONEY RAN OUT BEFORE IT
08/27/09 09:36:27 GOT TO OUR APPLICATION EVERY
08/27/09 09:36:28 TIME.
08/27/09 09:36:29 WITH THE BAD LOTTERY NUMBERS WE
08/27/09 09:36:32 DON'T THINK WE WILL GET
08/27/09 09:36:33 FUNDING
08/27/09 09:36:34 FOR THE TEMPO.
08/27/09 09:36:34 THAT'S ANOTHER SETBACK.
08/27/09 09:36:37 IT IS A HARD BLOW FOR
08/27/09 09:36:38 US.
08/27/09 09:36:39 IT IS VERY UPSETTING.
08/27/09 09:36:42 IN SPITE OF THAT, AS
08/27/09 09:36:42 A
08/27/09 09:36:44 PARTNERSHIP, WE FIGURE WE HAVE
08/27/09 09:36:47 TO FIND DIFFERENT FINANCIAL
08/27/09 09:36:48 STRATEGY AND KEEP MOVING.
08/27/09 09:36:50 WE REMAIN COMETTED IN
08/27/09 09:36:52 PARTNERSHIP TO GETTING IT DONE.
08/27/09 09:36:55 THE ENCORE NEEDS TO BE
08/27/09 09:36:55 DEVELOPED.
08/27/09 09:36:58 THE MULTIFAMILY NEEDS TO
08/27/09 09:36:58 BE
08/27/09 09:37:00 DEVELOPED AND FRANKLY, IT MAKES
08/27/09 09:37:02 US LOOK HARD AT THE STATE
08/27/09 09:37:04 SYSTEMS AND THEY SHOULD BE
08/27/09 09:37:06 POINTING VERY HARD AT THE CRAS.
08/27/09 09:37:07 AND THEY ARE TELLING THEM WHERE
08/27/09 09:37:08 THEY WANT DEVELOPMENT AND WE
08/27/09 09:37:11 HAVE TO WORK HARD ON THAT TOO.
08/27/09 09:37:12 RECOGNIZING THIS IS OUR THIRD
08/27/09 09:37:14 YEAR OF SUBMITTING GOOD STRONG
08/27/09 09:37:16 APPLICATIONS AND NOT GETTING
08/27/09 09:37:19 FUNDED, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO
08/27/09 09:37:21 SHIFT SOME PLANS.
08/27/09 09:37:24 WE DID GET SOME PRELIMINARY
08/27/09 09:37:24 GOOD NEWS ON FUNDING THAT WE
08/27/09 09:37:26 THINK IS GOING TO COME THROUGH
08/27/09 09:37:29 ON TWO BUILDINGS WE DIDN'T
08/27/09 09:37:29 ANTICIPATE.
08/27/09 09:37:30 NOT THROUGH THE 9% APPLICATION.
08/27/09 09:37:33 IT IS GOING TO BE TWO OR THREE
08/27/09 09:37:35 MONTHS BEFORE WE HAVE SOLID
08/27/09 09:37:37 INFORMATION WE CAN COME BACK
08/27/09 09:37:37 AND SAY.
08/27/09 09:37:37 HERE IT IS.
08/27/09 09:37:41 WE DO HAVE HOPE AND
08/27/09 09:37:42 WE ACTUALLY
08/27/09 09:37:44 ENGAGED ARCHITECTS AND
08/27/09 09:37:46 COMPLETED THE SCHEMATIC DESIGNS
08/27/09 09:37:47 ON THE FIRST THREE BUILDINGS
08/27/09 09:37:49 AND WE HAVE ENGAUGED ARCHITECTS
08/27/09 09:37:52 AND WE ARE IN SCHEMATIC DESIGNS
08/27/09 09:37:53 NOW FOR OUR NEXT TWO
08/27/09 09:37:53 DEVELOPMENTS.
08/27/09 09:37:56 AT THE ENDS OF THE DAY,
08/27/09 09:37:57 WE HAVE
08/27/09 09:38:00 WEATHERED THE MARKET TURN THAT
08/27/09 09:38:02 IS VERY TOUGH.
08/27/09 09:38:04 THE IMPLICATIONS OF EVERYTHING
08/27/09 09:38:07 THAT COULD GO WRONG AND DID GO
08/27/09 09:38:09 WRONG WITH INCREMENTAL
08/27/09 09:38:10 FINANCING, THAT THE DOWNTURN
08/27/09 09:38:13 WITH THE FUNDING AVAILABLE AT
08/27/09 09:38:15 THE 9% ARENA AND INSPITE OF ALL
08/27/09 09:38:16 THE ABOVE, WE ARE MOVING
08/27/09 09:38:17 FORWARD.
08/27/09 09:38:19 AND WE ARE GOING TO WORK
08/27/09 09:38:20 TOGETHER IN PARTNERSHIP AND
08/27/09 09:38:20 FIGURE IT OUT.
08/27/09 09:38:24 I WISH I
08/27/09 09:38:25 COULD TELL YOU THAT WE
08/27/09 09:38:28 COULD PULL OUT THE TEMPLE THIS
08/27/09 09:38:28 YEAR.
08/27/09 09:38:30 AND WE HOPE TO MOVE FORWARD ON
08/27/09 09:38:31 THE FIRST BIDDING THIS YEAR.
08/27/09 09:38:34 BUT WE ARE NOT THERE YET.
08/27/09 09:38:37 ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS I CAN
08/27/09 09:38:37 ANSWER?
08/27/09 09:38:40 >> WELL, THANK YOU FOR THE
08/27/09 09:38:41 UPDATE.
08/27/09 09:38:41 THANKS FOR BEING HERE.
08/27/09 09:38:44 >> Chairman Scott: IT IS MY
08/27/09 09:38:46 UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU FAILED
08/27/09 09:38:47 130 OR SOMETHING.
08/27/09 09:38:50 AND I THINK
08/27/09 09:38:50 THE OTHER SIDE OF
08/27/09 09:38:53 STAIN PAUL, IT IS ABOUT
08/27/09 09:38:54 15.
08/27/09 09:38:54 IS THAT RIGHT.
08/27/09 09:38:57 AND THEY FELL
08/27/09 09:39:00 IN A GOOD LOTTERY
08/27/09 09:39:02 NUMBER.
08/27/09 09:39:02 YOU ALL FELL WAY DOWN.
08/27/09 09:39:05 WHAT WAS THE LOTTERY NUMBER YOU
08/27/09 09:39:06 HAD LAST YEAR.
08/27/09 09:39:07 >> IT WAS 23 # OR 24.
08/27/09 09:39:09 IT WAS SECOND IN LEAN.
08/27/09 09:39:12 AND IT STILL
08/27/09 09:39:14 DID NOT GET
08/27/09 09:39:14 FUNDED.
08/27/09 09:39:17 I BELIEVE THERE IS SIMPLY NOT
08/27/09 09:39:19 ENOUGH FUNDING TO SUPPORT
08/27/09 09:39:21 AFFORDABLE HOUSING AT THE STATE
08/27/09 09:39:23 LEVEL AND IT IS, WHEN YOU LOOK
08/27/09 09:39:25 AT THE VALUE OF A TAX CREDIT
08/27/09 09:39:28 AND LOOK AT THE LIMITED
08/27/09 09:39:30 RESOURCE THAT IS COUNTIES AND
08/27/09 09:39:31 CITIES HAVE TO SUPPORT
08/27/09 09:39:32 AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND LOOK AT
08/27/09 09:39:33 THE NEED.
08/27/09 09:39:34 THERE IS A HUGE DISCONNECT AND
08/27/09 09:39:37 IT MEANS WE HAVE
08/27/09 09:39:38 TO REACH
08/27/09 09:39:39 FURTHER IN A MORE CREATIVE
08/27/09 09:39:40 DIRECTIONS AND STAY THE COURSE.
08/27/09 09:39:43 >> Chairman Scott: YES, OKAY.
08/27/09 09:39:46 ANYTHING THAT WE CAN DO MAYBE
08/27/09 09:39:48 PERHAPS TO RIGHT THE GOVERNOR
08/27/09 09:39:51 OR THOSE IN
08/27/09 09:39:51 TALLAHASSEE TO
08/27/09 09:39:51 ASSIST?
08/27/09 09:39:53 >> FRANKLY, WE MAY ASK FOR YOUR
08/27/09 09:39:55 SUPPORT IN THAT MANNER, BUT I
08/27/09 09:39:58 WILL TELL YOU THE CITY OF TAMPA
08/27/09 09:40:00 HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS IN THEIR
08/27/09 09:40:03 PARTNERSHIP TO US AND
08/27/09 09:40:05 SUPPORTING OUR EFFORTS FOR A
08/27/09 09:40:08 VERY LONG TIME NOW AND
08/27/09 09:40:09 IT IS
08/27/09 09:40:10 NOT EASY.
08/27/09 09:40:11 I GUESS IF EVERYBODY WOULD DO
08/27/09 09:40:14 IT AND IT IS
08/27/09 09:40:15 THE MOST
08/27/09 09:40:16 CHALLENGING DEVELOPMENT I HAVE
08/27/09 09:40:18 EVER EXPERIENCED AND THAT JUST
08/27/09 09:40:19 BRINGING THE RESOLVE A LITTLE
08/27/09 09:40:22 FURTHER IN THAT WE ARE
08/27/09 09:40:27 NOT
08/27/09 09:40:27 GIVING UP.
08/27/09 09:40:30 >> OKAY.
08/27/09 09:40:32 THANK YOU.
08/27/09 09:40:35 >> ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ONE OF
08/27/09 09:40:35 THE HOUSING.
08/27/09 09:40:38 >> WE ARE REFERRING TO THE
08/27/09 09:40:38 FINANCING APPLICATIONS.
08/27/09 09:40:41 IT WAS THE TWO FAMILY
08/27/09 09:40:41 DEVELOPMENTS.
08/27/09 09:40:44 THE TEMPO AND THE ELLA AND
08/27/09 09:40:45 WE
08/27/09 09:40:47 ARE AFFORDABLE HOUSING
08/27/09 09:40:47 DEVELOPERS.
08/27/09 09:40:49 >> RIGHT.
08/27/09 09:40:50 >> SO OUR ROLE IN PARTNERSHIP
08/27/09 09:40:53 IS TO DO THE INFRASTRUCTURE
08/27/09 09:40:54 WHICH WE APPLIED FOR FUNDING
08/27/09 09:40:57 FOR AND MULTIFAMILY SITES AND
08/27/09 09:40:59 BILL THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.
08/27/09 09:41:01 THE COMMERCIAL LOTS SUCH AS THE
08/27/09 09:41:02 GROCERY, HOTEL, OFFICE, THOSE
08/27/09 09:41:05 WILL BE SOLD TO THOSE TYPES OF
08/27/09 09:41:10 DEVELOPERS AND USERS.
08/27/09 09:41:12 >> RIGHT.
08/27/09 09:41:14 CHAIRWOMAN MULHERN: I UNDER
08/27/09 09:41:17 YOU TO SAY YOU WOULDN'T GET THE
08/27/09 09:41:19 FINANCING FOR THE ELLA AND THE
08/27/09 09:41:19 TEMPO.
08/27/09 09:41:22 DID YOU JUST
08/27/09 09:41:23 MEAN BUILDING IN
08/27/09 09:41:23 GENERAL?
08/27/09 09:41:26 ONE THAT WE ARE CLOSER TO
08/27/09 09:41:26 ACTUALLY.
08/27/09 09:41:29 >> THERE ARE FIVE INDIVIDUAL
08/27/09 09:41:32 MULTIFAMILY SITES THAT BANK OF
08/27/09 09:41:33 AMERICA AND THE TAMPA HOUSING
08/27/09 09:41:36 AUTHORITY INTEND TO DEVELOP
08/27/09 09:41:36 IN
08/27/09 09:41:38 PARTNERSHIP TOGETHER.
08/27/09 09:41:40 WE ADVANCED THE ELLA AND THE
08/27/09 09:41:42 TEMPO AS THE FIRST TWO SITES
08/27/09 09:41:45 AND THEY WERE LISTED IN OUR
08/27/09 09:41:46 DRAFT MASTER DEVELOPMENT
08/27/09 09:41:47 AGREEMENT, LOTS TWO AND THREE
08/27/09 09:41:50 AS THE FIRST ONES WE WOULD
08/27/09 09:41:50 DEVELOP.
08/27/09 09:41:52 NOW KNOWING WE DON'T HAVE THE
08/27/09 09:41:55 FINANCING, WE ARE SHIFTING
08/27/09 09:41:58 THE
08/27/09 09:41:58 INCOMPETENCE TERM PROGRAM.
08/27/09 09:42:00 CHAIRWOMAN MULHERN: I THINK I
08/27/09 09:42:01 HEARD YOU WRONG.
08/27/09 09:42:02 BUT THANK YOU.
08/27/09 09:42:04 >> THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS
08/27/09 09:42:07 SHIFTING IT TO AFFORDABLE
08/27/09 09:42:07 RENTAL HOUSING.
08/27/09 09:42:08 >> YOU DID.
08/27/09 09:42:11 >> WE THINK WE HAVE A
08/27/09 09:42:11 STRONG
08/27/09 09:42:11 APPLICATION.
08/27/09 09:42:13 >> WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK TO
08/27/09 09:42:14 THAT?
08/27/09 09:42:16 WE FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE
08/27/09 09:42:16 APPLICATION.
08/27/09 09:42:19 >> MAYBE YOU COULD, YOU KNOW,
08/27/09 09:42:22 LOOK TO THAT
08/27/09 09:42:25 INITIATIVE
08/27/09 09:42:27 AS A
08/27/09 09:42:28 FUNDING SOURCE.
08/27/09 09:42:28 >> Chairman Scott: ONE OF THE
08/27/09 09:42:29 PROBLEMS WITH THAT KIND OF
08/27/09 09:42:31 INFORMATION COMING DOWN IT HAS
08/27/09 09:42:33 TO TRICKLE DOWN TO THE VARIOUS
08/27/09 09:42:36 DEPARTMENTS SO EVERYONE GETS
08/27/09 09:42:37 THE SAME MESSAGE.
08/27/09 09:42:38 BUT TAMPA HOUSING AUTHORITY,
08/27/09 09:42:41 LET ME SAY TO YOU, I AM STILL
08/27/09 09:42:44 VERY OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THIS
08/27/09 09:42:44 PROJECT.
08/27/09 09:42:47 WE HAD A PASS FOR TWO WEEKS AGO
08/27/09 09:42:50 THAT PREACHED ABOUT THE WHOLE
08/27/09 09:42:51 ISSUE OF BEING CRITICAL AND YOU
08/27/09 09:42:52 WOULD HAVE A CRITICAL SITUATION
08/27/09 09:42:55 ON YOUR HANDS AND YOU CAN BE
08/27/09 09:42:56 OPTIMISTIC ABOUT IT TOO.
08/27/09 09:42:58 AND THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE
08/27/09 09:43:01 AND A LOT OF HURDLES TO GET
08/27/09 09:43:01 OVER.
08/27/09 09:43:03 THERE IS NOT ONE PROJECT IN THE
08/27/09 09:43:05 COMMUNITY THAT WE DID NOT START
08/27/09 09:43:06 THAT WE DID NOT FINISH.
08/27/09 09:43:08 WE WILL FINISH THIS PROJECT.
08/27/09 09:43:09 WE WILL GET IT DONE.
08/27/09 09:43:12 WE MAY HAVE TO SHIFT
08/27/09 09:43:13 RESOURCES
08/27/09 09:43:15 AND DO THINGS DIFFERENT AND
08/27/09 09:43:17 BANK OF AMERICA AND CITY OF
08/27/09 09:43:19 TAMPA, WE COULDN'T FOR A BETTER
08/27/09 09:43:19 RELATIONSHIP.
08/27/09 09:43:21 WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET IT
08/27/09 09:43:22 DONE.
08/27/09 09:43:23 WE WILL GET IT DOWN.
08/27/09 09:43:24 NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
08/27/09 09:43:26 WE MAY HAVE TO LOOK AT SOME
08/27/09 09:43:28 OTHER OPTIONS AND FUNDING
08/27/09 09:43:29 SOURCES AND ANOTHER ONE.
08/27/09 09:43:31 AND THERE ARE OTHER
08/27/09 09:43:31 OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE.
08/27/09 09:43:32 I THINK WITH THIS
08/27/09 09:43:34 ADMINISTRATION, WE HAVE A MUCH
08/27/09 09:43:35 BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING IT
08/27/09 09:43:38 DONE NOW THAN WE WOULD HAVE A
08/27/09 09:43:39 FEW YEARS AGO.
08/27/09 09:43:40 I AM STILL OVERLY OPTIMISTIC
08/27/09 09:43:41 ABOUT IT.
08/27/09 09:43:42 AND I AM SURE.
08/27/09 09:43:43 IN MY MIND.
08/27/09 09:43:45 IF WE CONTINUE THE PARTNERSHIP
08/27/09 09:43:48 AND WE HAVE HAD TOUGH TIMES
08/27/09 09:43:48 HERE.
08/27/09 09:43:49 AND WE HAVE HAD TOUGH TIMES AND
08/27/09 09:43:51 WE ARE JOINED AT THE HIP.
08/27/09 09:43:53 AND THE CITY IS ON ONE SIDE.
08/27/09 09:43:54 AND BANK OF AMERICA IS ON THE
08/27/09 09:43:55 OTHER SIDE.
08/27/09 09:43:56 AND RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.
08/27/09 09:43:58 WE WILL GET THE PROJECT DONE.
08/27/09 09:44:00 LET ME ASSURE YOU OF THAT.
08/27/09 09:44:01 NO DOUBT IN MY MIND ABOUT IT.
08/27/09 09:44:04 >> I WANTED TO SAY THE OTHER
08/27/09 09:44:06 DAY I DROVE BY THE JAIL WHICH
08/27/09 09:44:07 IS UNDER DEMOLITION RIGHT NOW
08/27/09 09:44:09 WHICH TO ME IS A POSITIVE SIGN
08/27/09 09:44:12 FOR THE WHOLE AREA
08/27/09 09:44:13 IN TERMS OF
08/27/09 09:44:13 REBIRTH.
08/27/09 09:44:16 AND THE NAME YOU
08/27/09 09:44:17 SELECTED,
08/27/09 09:44:18 ENCORE IS SO APPROPRIATE.
08/27/09 09:44:21 HOWEVER, WE AS A CRA
08/27/09 09:44:21 BOARD OR
08/27/09 09:44:24 CITY COUNCIL CAN BE
08/27/09 09:44:26 HELPFUL TO
08/27/09 09:44:26 YOU.
08/27/09 09:44:28 IT IS WITH LOBBYING OR WHAT
08/27/09 09:44:28 EVER CAPACITY.
08/27/09 09:44:29 WE ARE THERE WITH YOU AND
08/27/09 09:44:31 TRYING TO HELP IT HAPPEN.
08/27/09 09:44:33 >> I THANK YOU FOR THAT.
08/27/09 09:44:34 I REALLY THINK.
08/27/09 09:44:35 AND I THINK SHE TALKED ABOUT
08/27/09 09:44:37 THE WHOLE SYSTEM OF THE LOTTERY
08/27/09 09:44:40 SYSTEM AND ALL OF
08/27/09 09:44:40 THAT.
08/27/09 09:44:42 IT IS FRUSTRATING WHEN YOU
08/27/09 09:44:43 SUBMIT THREE APPLICATIONS AND
08/27/09 09:44:44 THEY ARE PERFECT APPLICATIONS
08/27/09 09:44:47 AND END UP WITH CRAZY
08/27/09 09:44:48 LOTTERY
08/27/09 09:44:49 NUMBERS AND MAKES IT MUCH MORE
08/27/09 09:44:49 DIFFICULT.
08/27/09 09:44:52 IT IS A WHOLE ISSUE IN MY MIND
08/27/09 09:44:52 OF FAIRNESS.
08/27/09 09:44:54 WHAT AGENCIES ARE TRYING TO DO
08/27/09 09:44:56 AND WHAT KIND OF HOUSING WE ARE
08/27/09 09:44:58 TRYING TO PRODUCE AND OTHER
08/27/09 09:44:58 COMMUNITIES LIKE THIS.
08/27/09 09:45:01 THAT'S AN ISSUE WE WILL HAVE TO
08/27/09 09:45:03 ADDRESS AND WE MAY HAVE TO
08/27/09 09:45:04 ADDRESS THE DIFFERENT LEVELS
08/27/09 09:45:05 AND THE CITY HAS BEEN THERE
08/27/09 09:45:07 WITH US AM AND NEVER ANY ISSUES
08/27/09 09:45:08 ABOUT THAT.
08/27/09 09:45:11 AND THE MAYOR AND THE
08/27/09 09:45:12 CITY
08/27/09 09:45:13 COUNCIL ALWAYS SUPPORTED US.
08/27/09 09:45:14 AND YOU CAN TAKE IT TO THE
08/27/09 09:45:17 BANK, WE WILL GET
08/27/09 09:45:18 THE PROJECT.
08/27/09 09:45:20 THROUGH HOOK OR CROOK, AS MY
08/27/09 09:45:22 SON WOULD SAY.
08/27/09 09:45:23 >> NO CROOKS.

08/27/09 09:55:13 DUE PARK AS WELL.
08/27/09 09:55:15 PART OF OUR JOB IS TO MARKET
08/27/09 09:55:17 THE REDEVELOPMENT AREAS AND IN
08/27/09 09:55:19 SOME CASE THAT IS COULD MEAN TO
08/27/09 09:55:21 PRIVATE DEVELOPERS AND OTHER
08/27/09 09:55:24 CASES IT IS TO THE COMMUNITY TO
08/27/09 09:55:27 BRING PATRONS
08/27/09 09:55:30 DOWN IN YABOR
08/27/09 09:55:31 CITY.
08/27/09 09:55:34 WE TRY AVAIL OURSELVES AND IT
08/27/09 09:55:36 INVOLVES BRINGING IN AN OUTSIDE
08/27/09 09:55:36 CONSULTANT.
08/27/09 09:55:39 >> I AM WELL FAMILIAR WITH THE
08/27/09 09:55:40 YABOR MARKETING EFFORT WHICH
08/27/09 09:55:43 LIKE YOU SAY IS MORE ON RETAIL
08/27/09 09:55:43 LEVEL.
08/27/09 09:55:45 AND SO, IN EAST TAMPA, IT WOULD
08/27/09 09:55:47 BE MORE MARKETING TOWARDS THE
08/27/09 09:55:48 DEVELOPMENT REAL ESTATE COME
08/27/09 09:55:51 MOONITY, THAT SORT OF
08/27/09 09:55:51 THING.
08/27/09 09:55:52 >> DEFINITELY.
08/27/09 09:55:55 FOR EXAMPLE, WE
08/27/09 09:55:56 DO THAT
08/27/09 09:55:59 ROUTINELY AND NOW WE WILL BRING
08/27/09 09:56:00 DEVELOPERS IN THE AREA.
08/27/09 09:56:03 IT IS NOT AN EXAMPLE THAT HAS
08/27/09 09:56:04 SEEN PRIVATE INTEREST AND
08/27/09 09:56:07 UNLIKE SOME OF OUR OTHER
08/27/09 09:56:07 AREAS.
08/27/09 09:56:10 WHAT WE ARE FACED THERE, THE
08/27/09 09:56:11 PRIVATE COMMUNITY AND THINK
08/27/09 09:56:13 DIFFERENTLY AND THE TUNES THAT
08/27/09 09:56:14 ARE THERE.
08/27/09 09:56:17 AND WE FIND
08/27/09 09:56:20 THE MOST
08/27/09 09:56:22 DEFECTIVE
08/27/09 09:56:23 WAYS TO BRING INVESTORS AND
08/27/09 09:56:24 LEERS AND SEE FOR THEMSELVES
08/27/09 09:56:26 WHAT IS GOING ON ALONG
08/27/09 09:56:28 40th STREET AND IN THE CORE
08/27/09 09:56:29 OF THE DISTRICT.
08/27/09 09:56:31 SO WE DO THOSE THINGS.
08/27/09 09:56:32 WE NEED OTHER TOOLS.
08/27/09 09:56:34 >> HOW BIG IS THE BUDGET
08/27/09 09:56:35 ANTICIPATED FOR NEXT YEAR.
08/27/09 09:56:38 >> ED, DO YOU HAVE
08/27/09 09:56:39 SOME.
08/27/09 09:56:40 >> BALLPARK.
08/27/09 09:56:42 >> BALLPARK, MARKETING FUND
08/27/09 09:56:45 AVAILABLE
08/27/09 09:56:48 IN
08/27/09 09:56:49 EAST TAMPA.
08/27/09 09:56:49 >> $90,000.
08/27/09 09:56:50 >> APPROXIMATELY 90,000.
08/27/09 09:56:52 >> I WAS READING OVER THE
08/27/09 09:56:54 REPORT ON CHANNEL DISTRICT AND
08/27/09 09:56:56 ONE OF THE ITEMS WAS TOP GOALS
08/27/09 09:56:58 AS COMPLETE NEGOTIATIONS WITH
08/27/09 09:57:01 FLORIDA AQUARIUM REGARDING A
08/27/09 09:57:01 LONG TERM OPERATING AGREEMENT?
08/27/09 09:57:03 I READ IN THE PAPER WE HAVE NOT
08/27/09 09:57:05 BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS DOING
08/27/09 09:57:05 THAT.
08/27/09 09:57:08 I SERVED AS AN AQUARIUM BOARD
08/27/09 09:57:09 MEMBER.
08/27/09 09:57:11 I WONDER IF BECAUSE THIS IS
08/27/09 09:57:14 BOTH CITY AND CRA, THERE WOULD
08/27/09 09:57:17 BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR COUNCIL
08/27/09 09:57:20 TO HAVE SOME INPUT INTO
08/27/09 09:57:20 THE
08/27/09 09:57:21 PROCESS.
08/27/09 09:57:22 >> I BELIEVE ALL SIGNIFICANT
08/27/09 09:57:24 MATTERS HAVE BEEN RESOLVED IN
08/27/09 09:57:24 THAT.
08/27/09 09:57:26 AND THE ATTORNEYS ARE
08/27/09 09:57:27 COMPLETING THE DOCUMENTATION
08/27/09 09:57:30 AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO BRINGING
08/27/09 09:57:32 THAT AGREEMENT TO YOU.
08/27/09 09:57:32 AND TOGETHER.
08/27/09 09:57:34 THE AQUARIUM AND THE CITY IN
08/27/09 09:57:36 SEPTEMBER FOR YOUR APPROVAL.
08/27/09 09:57:37 AND SO, I THINK WE HAVE HAD
08/27/09 09:57:38 VERY GOOD PROGRESS.
08/27/09 09:57:41 >> SO, THE PAPER THE OTHER DAY
08/27/09 09:57:41 WAS NOT CORRECT.
08/27/09 09:57:43 >> THE ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN IN
08/27/09 09:57:46 ANTICIPATION OF A MEETING THAT
08/27/09 09:57:46 OCCURRED YESTERDAY.
08/27/09 09:57:48 AND THE PURPOSE OF THAT MEETING
08/27/09 09:57:50 WAS TO FINALIZE NEGOTIATIONS ON
08/27/09 09:57:53 A FEW OUTSTANDING POINTS OF
08/27/09 09:57:53 SIGNIFICANCE.
08/27/09 09:57:56 AND WE HAD VERY GOOD
08/27/09 09:57:59 CONVERSATIONS
08/27/09 09:58:01 ON THOSE MATTERS
08/27/09 09:58:01 YESTERDAY.
08/27/09 09:58:02 AGAIN WOO LOOK FORWARD TO
08/27/09 09:58:04 BRINGING THAT TO YOU IN THE
08/27/09 09:58:04 MONTH OF SEPTEMBER.
08/27/09 09:58:06 >> THAT WOULD BE GREAT, THANK

08/27/09 09:58:09 >> AT THIS TIME WE

08/27/09 09:58:11 ANYONE IN THE PUBLIC LIKE TO

08/27/09 09:58:48 HOW LONG A PARTICULAR
08/27/09 09:58:48 INDIVIDUAL SHOULD SERVE.
08/27/09 09:58:50 THERE IS ACTION FOR CHARITY ON

08/27/09 09:58:52 THAT IS ONE ISSUE.

08/27/09 10:04:00 THAT'S JUST A REQUEST
08/27/09 10:04:02 TO THE
08/27/09 10:04:02 ADVISORY COMMITTEE.
08/27/09 10:04:05 >> WE TALKED AND WE HAD GIVEN
08/27/09 10:04:08 HIM INSTRUCTION TO LOOK

08/27/09 10:04:11 THE BYLAWS AND BRING BACK
08/27/09 10:04:11 CORRECTIONS AND AMBIGUITY.
08/27/09 10:04:14 SO YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO THAT.
08/27/09 10:04:17 >> WE ARE
08/27/09 10:04:19 LOOKING AT THE
08/27/09 10:04:19 ISSUES.
08/27/09 10:04:21 AND THE PROBLEM WE HAVE IS NOT
08/27/09 10:04:22 A PROBLEM.
08/27/09 10:04:23 ONE PERSON MAY HAVE A CONCERN
08/27/09 10:04:24 AND OTHERS MAY NOT.
08/27/09 10:04:26 AND TRYING TO WEIGH THE

08/27/09 10:04:45 I AM NOT SAYING HE HAS A RIGHT
08/27/09 10:04:46 TO SAY THAT.
08/27/09 10:04:48 IF ONE PERSON COMES FORWARD, WE
08/27/09 10:04:51 NEED TO HAVE A CONSENSUS ON
08/27/09 10:04:53 WHETHER IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE.

08/27/09 10:09:39 IS THE
08/27/09 10:09:39 PRINCIPLE?
08/27/09 10:09:42 >> THE PRINCIPLE, JUST TO GIVE
08/27/09 10:09:43 YOU BACKGROUND, THE PRINCIPLE
08/27/09 10:09:45 RELATES TO THE TIF FUND THAT
08/27/09 10:09:47 COMES INTO THE TRUST ACCOUNTS.
08/27/09 10:09:49 THE BALANCES THAT WE HAVE
08/27/09 10:09:51 ACCUMULATED OVER A NUMBER OF
08/27/09 10:09:51 YEARS.
08/27/09 10:09:52 ON A GOING FORWARD BASIS, WHAT
08/27/09 10:09:55 WE WILL DO IS INCLUDE THE
08/27/09 10:09:57 INTEREST COMMITMENT IN THE
08/27/09 10:09:57 BUDGETING PROCESS.
08/27/09 10:09:59 WHAT YOU ARE DOING TODAY IS
08/27/09 10:10:02 COMMITTING INTEREST THAT HAS
08/27/09 10:10:04 ACCUMULATED BECAUSE OF TEF
08/27/09 10:10:07 FUNDS PRIOR
08/27/09 10:10:10 TO THEIR
08/27/09 10:10:12 EXPENDITURE AND TIF FUND GET IT
08/27/09 10:10:14 BY THE TAXING AUTHORITIES BY
08/27/09 10:10:16 THE FIRST OF EACH YEAR AND AS
08/27/09 10:10:18 YOU KNOW, FOR AN INFRASTRUCTURE
08/27/09 10:10:21 PROJECT IT CAN TAKE A COUPLE OF
08/27/09 10:10:22 YEARS TO SPEND THE FUNDS.
08/27/09 10:10:25 INTEREST IS ACCRUED ON THE
08/27/09 10:10:25 FUND.
08/27/09 10:10:26 AND IT IS INTEREST THAT IS
08/27/09 10:10:29 AGAIN TO BE TREATED
08/27/09 10:10:30 IN THE SAME
08/27/09 10:10:33 WAY THAT TIF FUNDS ARE TO BE
08/27/09 10:10:35 TREATED AND IN THE
08/27/09 10:10:36 REDEVELOPMENT AREA.
08/27/09 10:10:38 SO, WHAT YOU ARE DOING TODAY IS
08/27/09 10:10:42 ACTUALLY
08/27/09 10:10:44 MAKING THOSE COMMIT
08/27/09 10:10:47 MINUTES.

08/27/09 10:11:11 THE BANK MAY NOT BE
08/27/09 10:11:14 AS, IT IS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN
08/27/09 10:11:14 IT WAS.
08/27/09 10:11:17 >> ABSOLUTELY.
08/27/09 10:11:20 I AGREE WITH YOU 100 PERCENT.
08/27/09 10:11:22 IT IS TO GET IT SPENT AND THAT

08/27/09 10:11:42 >> Mr. Huey: 3% OR

08/27/09 10:11:45 THAT'S A BONNIE QUESTION AND IF
08/27/09 10:11:48 YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU

08/27/09 10:27:58 I WANTED TO MAKE NOTE
08/27/09 10:27:58 THAT ONE
08/27/09 10:28:00 THE LANDMARKS IN THE CENTRAL
08/27/09 10:28:00 PARK.
08/27/09 10:28:03 THE SCHOOL IS HAVING A TOUGH
08/27/09 10:28:03 TIME.
08/27/09 10:28:06 MANY ORGANIZATIONS
08/27/09 10:28:07 AND
08/27/09 10:28:07 BUSINESSES ARE.
08/27/09 10:28:07 UP HIGHER.
08/27/09 10:28:08 >> OKAY.
08/27/09 10:28:09 THAT'S IT.
08/27/09 10:28:10 >> THAT GOOD?
08/27/09 10:28:11 MANY ORGANIZATIONS, NONPROFITS.
08/27/09 10:28:12 BUSINESSES ARE.
08/27/09 10:28:15 I WANTED TO ALERT YOU OF THIS.
08/27/09 10:28:16 SENSE 1894, THEY ARE THE FIRST
08/27/09 10:28:18 SCHOOL IN FLORIDA THAT WAS
08/27/09 10:28:21 FOUNDED EXCLUSIVELY TO MEET THE
08/27/09 10:28:22 NEEDS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN
08/27/09 10:28:22 CHURN.
08/27/09 10:28:24 P THEY ARE STRUGGLING AND
08/27/09 10:28:25 HAVING AN OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT.
08/27/09 10:28:27 THEY WILL HAVE OTHER COMMUNITY
08/27/09 10:28:30 EVENTS AND WE WANTED TO GET THE
08/27/09 10:28:33 WORD OUT TO YOU.
08/27/09 10:28:35 AND AND TO BE SUPPORTIVE OF
08/27/09 10:28:38 THIS LANDMARK
08/27/09 10:28:41 IN OUR
08/27/09 10:28:41 COMMUNITY.
08/27/09 10:28:43 >> DID LEVELING CENTRAL PARK
08/27/09 10:28:45 WHICH WAS GENERALLY A FOOD
08/27/09 10:28:45 THING FOR OUR COMMUNITY.
08/27/09 10:28:48 DID THAT HAVE AN
08/27/09 10:28:51 IMPACT
08/27/09 10:28:52 ON ZANE
08/27/09 10:28:52 PETER.
08/27/09 10:28:54 THAT OCCURRED A FEW YEARS AGO
08/27/09 10:28:56 AND WHAT IS AFFECTING THEM IS
08/27/09 10:28:58 EFFECTING ALL PRIVATE SCHOOLS
08/27/09 10:29:01 RIGHT NOW, THE ECONOMY.
08/27/09 10:29:02 AND THIS SCHOOL IN ADDITION
08/27/09 10:29:04 EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE.
08/27/09 10:29:06 AND THERE ARE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR
08/27/09 10:29:07 ANY STUDENT WHO WOULD LEAK TO
08/27/09 10:29:09 COME TO THE SCHOOL AND THE
08/27/09 10:29:10 TUITION IS LOWER THAN THE TOTAL
08/27/09 10:29:12 COST OF RUNNING THE SCHOOL.
08/27/09 10:29:14 SO THEY COUNT ON COMMUNITY
08/27/09 10:29:15 SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE
08/27/09 10:29:18 COMMUNITY
08/27/09 10:29:20 TO HELP RUN THAT
08/27/09 10:29:20 SCHOOL.
08/27/09 10:29:22 THEY ARE GETTING HIT IN A
08/27/09 10:29:24 COUPLE OF DIFFERENT WAYS AND IN
08/27/09 10:29:26 TERMS THE ECONOMIC CONDITIONS
08/27/09 10:29:27 AND BOARD MEMBERS.
08/27/09 10:29:28 >> THANK YOU.
08/27/09 10:29:30 >> I WAS GOING TO SAY THAT'S
08/27/09 10:29:33 THE BIG ISSUES WITH PRIVATE
08/27/09 10:29:34 SCHOOLS.
08/27/09 10:29:36 WE HAVE ENROLLED OVER 200 OR
08/27/09 10:29:38 300 KIDS AND THIS YEAR.
08/27/09 10:29:38 WE HAVE 120 KIDS.
08/27/09 10:29:40 THEY ARE GOING BACK TO CHARTER
08/27/09 10:29:42 SCHOOL WHICH IS STILL PUBLIC OR
08/27/09 10:29:45 PUBLIC SCHOOLS BECAUSE WITH THE
08/27/09 10:29:48 ECONOMY, PEOPLE
08/27/09 10:29:49 ARE STRUGGLING
08/27/09 10:29:50 TO PAY PROVE TUITION.
08/27/09 10:29:52 IT IS THE MERE FACT THEY CAN'T
08/27/09 10:29:54 AFFORD IT AND IT IS ONE THE BIG
08/27/09 10:29:57 CHALLENGES THERE THAT THEY ARE
08/27/09 10:29:58 FACING.
08/27/09 10:29:59 >> INFORMATION ON COUNCIL
08/27/09 10:29:59 MEMBERS?
08/27/09 10:30:00 >> YES.
08/27/09 10:30:03 >> I WOULD LIKE TO PASS
08/27/09 10:30:03 THIS
08/27/09 10:30:06 OUT TO MY FELLOW CRA BOARD
08/27/09 10:30:06 MEMBERS.
08/27/09 10:30:09 I BROUGHT UP THE
08/27/09 10:30:11 ISSUE OF THE
08/27/09 10:30:12 USSCOLLABORATIVE AND YOU ASKED
08/27/09 10:30:13 ME TO DO A TYPE OF MEETING WITH
08/27/09 10:30:14 THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA
08/27/09 10:30:17 AND I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THE
08/27/09 10:30:17 REPORT.
08/27/09 10:30:20 I MET
08/27/09 10:30:22 WITH DR. JUDY.
08/27/09 10:30:24 DR. SEUSS SAN GREENBAUM ON
08/27/09 10:30:25 AUGUST 21st AT THE UNIVERSITY
08/27/09 10:30:28 OF SOUTH FLORIDA TO DISCUSS THE
08/27/09 10:30:28 COLLABORATIVE.
08/27/09 10:30:30 IN SUMMARY, THE GOOD NEWS IS
08/27/09 10:30:33 THAT IT WILL CONTINUE TO
08/27/09 10:30:35 EXIST
08/27/09 10:30:37 UNDER THE ADMINISTRATION UNDR.
08/27/09 10:30:39 SEUSS SAN GREENBAUM AND MATCH
08/27/09 10:30:40 MAKER BETWEEN THE COME MOONITY
08/27/09 10:30:43 AND RESOURCES, THAT IS BEING
08/27/09 10:30:45 STAFFED BY JUDY JETSON WILL NOT
08/27/09 10:30:45 BE FUNNED.
08/27/09 10:30:47 SO THE LEVEL IN EAST TAMPA WILL
08/27/09 10:30:50 LESSEN DUE TO THE
08/27/09 10:30:51 LACK OF STAFF
08/27/09 10:30:51 SUPPORT.
08/27/09 10:30:52 IF THE CITY WOULD PROVIDE
08/27/09 10:30:53 PARTIAL FUNDING FOR THE
08/27/09 10:30:55 POSITION, USF WOULD BE ABLE TO
08/27/09 10:30:58 MATCH THE
08/27/09 10:30:58 FUNDING BUT THE
08/27/09 10:30:59 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA
08/27/09 10:31:02 EQUALLY SHARE IN THE
08/27/09 10:31:04 SELECTION
08/27/09 10:31:04 OF THAT STAFF MEMBER.
08/27/09 10:31:07 SO, WHILE THERE WILL BE AN
08/27/09 10:31:09 USF
08/27/09 10:31:10 COLLABORATIVE.
08/27/09 10:31:11 THERE IS NOT THE LIAISON
08/27/09 10:31:11 POSITION.
08/27/09 10:31:12 AND MADE EXCELLENT PROJECTS
08/27/09 10:31:13 POSSIBLE.
08/27/09 10:31:15 >> I DISCUSSED THIS WITH
08/27/09 10:31:17 MR. HUEY AND HE THOUGHT MUCH OF
08/27/09 10:31:19 THE WORK THAT MISS JETSON HAD
08/27/09 10:31:22 DONE WOULD NOT BE FUNDABLE
08/27/09 10:31:24 UNDER THE CRA GUIDELINES.
08/27/09 10:31:26 BECAUSE IT WAS HELPING WITH
08/27/09 10:31:30 CAPACITY BUILDING
08/27/09 10:31:32 WITH PUBLIC
08/27/09 10:31:34 HEALTH, WITH SORT OF THE HILL
08/27/09 10:31:36 OF THE COMMUNITY, THE SOCIAL
08/27/09 10:31:38 CULTURAL HEALTH OF THE
08/27/09 10:31:41 COMMUNITY AND SOME THINGS WOULD
08/27/09 10:31:41 BE SUPPORTABLE.
08/27/09 10:31:44 LIKE THE SCHOOL
08/27/09 10:31:47 OF ARCHITECTURE
08/27/09 10:31:49 OR URBAN PLANENING.
08/27/09 10:31:52 SO, I FEEL LIKE WE HAVE ALL
08/27/09 10:31:55 BENEFITED, THE COMMUNITY HAS SO
08/27/09 10:31:55 BENEFITED FROM THE
08/27/09 10:31:57 COLLABORATIONS THAT I WOULD
08/27/09 10:31:58 LIKE TO EXPLORE A HE BRINGS THE
08/27/09 10:32:01 BUDGET TO US NEXT MONTH
08/27/09 10:32:04 A
08/27/09 10:32:07 MODEST SUM OF $25,000.
08/27/09 10:32:08 TO SPECIFICALLY FUN THE LIAISON
08/27/09 10:32:10 POSITION AND THAT COULD BE
08/27/09 10:32:11 MATCHED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF
08/27/09 10:32:12 SOUTH FLORIDA WHICH IS 50,000
08/27/09 10:32:14 AND PAY FOR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY
08/27/09 10:32:16 AND THE CHILDREN'S BOARD IS
08/27/09 10:32:17 PUTTING SOME MONEY IN.
08/27/09 10:32:19 IT IS VALUABLE TO THE CITY.
08/27/09 10:32:21 WE HAVE GOTTEN OFF FOR YEARS.
08/27/09 10:32:22 SPECIFICALLY FIVE YEARS OF
08/27/09 10:32:24 BENEFITING WITHOUT PUTTING IN A
08/27/09 10:32:26 NICKEL AND WE HAVE HEARD FROM
08/27/09 10:32:28 THE COMMUNITY HOW VALUABLE THIS
08/27/09 10:32:28 HAS BEEN.
08/27/09 10:32:31 SO, I WOULD LIKE
08/27/09 10:32:34 TO
08/27/09 10:32:37 SEE
08/27/09 10:32:40 THAT IN
08/27/09 10:32:43 THERE.
08/27/09 10:32:43 >> MISS MULHERN?
08/27/09 10:32:46 >> MA: WHEN EVANGELINE CAME
08/27/09 10:32:47 IN
08/27/09 10:32:50 AND SHE HAD A LIST THE PROJECTS
08/27/09 10:32:52 THEY DID, I HAVE BEEN TALKING
08/27/09 10:32:53 TO A LOT OF DIFFERENT
08/27/09 10:32:55 DEPARTMENTS AND A LOT OF
08/27/09 10:32:57 DIFFERENT PROJECTS THAT THEY
08/27/09 10:32:58 ARE COLLABORATING ON THE CITY
08/27/09 10:33:01 ON IN EAST TAMPA, THEY
08/27/09 10:33:03 ARE THE
08/27/09 10:33:03 GEOLOGY DEPARTMENT, THE
08/27/09 10:33:06 ENVIRONMENT AFL SCIENCE,
08/27/09 10:33:07 LIKE
08/27/09 10:33:07 YOU SAID.
08/27/09 10:33:07 ARCHITECTURE.
08/27/09 10:33:09 URBAN PLANNING, ART, ALL OF
08/27/09 10:33:12 THESE WHICH ARE NOT NECESSARILY
08/27/09 10:33:14 SOCIAL PROGRAMS, THERE ARE MORE
08/27/09 10:33:16 ABOUT BILLING ECONOMIC
08/27/09 10:33:19 DEVELOPMENT, AND
08/27/09 10:33:22 BUILDING A
08/27/09 10:33:25 COMMUNITY, SO, I THINK
08/27/09 10:33:26 I WAS
08/27/09 10:33:27 REALLY IMPRESSED TO SEE HOW
08/27/09 10:33:29 MUCH THEY HAVE DONE FOR US AND
08/27/09 10:33:32 WE ARE ALL IN BAD SHAPE
08/27/09 10:33:33 AND WE
08/27/09 10:33:36 DO HAVE THAT ABILITY WITH THE
08/27/09 10:33:37 TIF DOLLARS TO CONTRIBUTE AND
08/27/09 10:33:39 IT IS A GREAT IDEA.
08/27/09 10:33:41 THANKS FOR DOING THAT.
08/27/09 10:33:42 >> TWO THINGS.
08/27/09 10:33:45 I WILL GO BACK TO THE
08/27/09 10:33:45 AGENDA
08/27/09 10:33:47 ITEM 6 WHICH IS THE FACT WE HAD
08/27/09 10:33:49 $844,000 OF FOUND INTEREST
08/27/09 10:33:52 MONEY JUST IN
08/27/09 10:33:53 EAST TAMPA ALONE.
08/27/09 10:33:55 SO, YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW, IF YOU
08/27/09 10:33:56 ARE TALKING ABOUT $25,000, IT
08/27/09 10:33:58 SEEMS LIKE A REASONABLE THING.
08/27/09 10:34:01 I GUESS IF THERE IS SOME LEGAL
08/27/09 10:34:03 QUESTION IN TERMS OF THE
08/27/09 10:34:06 FUNCTION OF THIS POSITION AND
08/27/09 10:34:08 IT FITS, WE SHOULD CHECK WITH
08/27/09 10:34:11 SAL TO LOOK AT THE LAUNDRY LIST
08/27/09 10:34:14 OF WHAT THE PERSON IS

08/27/09 10:37:08 TO DO.
08/27/09 10:37:11 IT AS INFORMATION CENTER
08/27/09 10:37:13 OF ALL
08/27/09 10:37:16 THE PROSECUTORS AT
08/27/09 10:37:17 USF --
08/27/09 10:37:20 PROFESSORS AND THAT IS 25,000
08/27/09 10:37:21 SQUARE FEET.
08/27/09 10:37:22 WHAT THE COMMUNITY LIAISON DID
08/27/09 10:37:25 IS ON
08/27/09 10:37:26 A STREET LEVEL.
08/27/09 10:37:27 AND WITH THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
08/27/09 10:37:30 SO THEY ARE COMFORTABLE WITH
08/27/09 10:37:31 THE PROFESSORS IN THE
08/27/09 10:37:31 NEIGHBORHOOD.
08/27/09 10:37:33 AND IT IS A COMPLETELY
08/27/09 10:37:35 DIFFERENT TEXTURE AND LEVEL OF
08/27/09 10:37:35 INTERACTION.
08/27/09 10:37:37 THAT HE IS WHAT WE ARE MISSING.
08/27/09 10:37:40 WHAT WE ARE GOING TO LOSE IS
08/27/09 10:37:42 THE ACTUAL STREET LEVEL
08/27/09 10:37:43 CONNECTING PROJECTS AND BOOMLE
08/27/09 10:37:45 AND IT WILL NOT BE REPLICABLE
08/27/09 10:37:46 IN OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS BECAUSE
08/27/09 10:37:49 WE HAVE FIVE YEARS OF DOING IT
08/27/09 10:37:51 IN EAST TAMPA WHERE IT IS
08/27/09 10:37:52 SUCCESSFUL.
08/27/09 10:37:53 THE AMOUNT OF FUNDING WE ARE
08/27/09 10:37:55 LOOKING AT IS A MODEST AMOUNT
08/27/09 10:37:55 OF FUNDING.
08/27/09 10:37:58 AND WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS
08/27/09 10:38:01 MAKE A MOTION THAT
08/27/09 10:38:03 BE EXAMINED
08/27/09 10:38:05 FOR APPROPRIATENESS BY THE CRA

08/27/09 10:38:14 FRIENDLY AND WHICH ONES AREN'T
08/27/09 10:38:18 AND THINGS ON THE PHYSICAL
08/27/09 10:38:20 LEVEL OF PHYSICAL IMPROVEMENTS
08/27/09 10:38:21 AND TRANSPORTATION.
08/27/09 10:38:22 THAT WOULD HELP IT WOULD BE
08/27/09 10:38:26 APPROPRIATE AND THE SOCIAL
08/27/09 10:38:27 SERVICE WOULDN'T BE APPROPRIATE
08/27/09 10:38:28 UNDER CRA AND WE CAN DEFINE IT
08/27/09 10:38:32 THAT WAY AND IF WE PICK UP
08/27/09 10:38:32 THE
08/27/09 10:38:33 TAB AND SPENDING HALF THE TIME
08/27/09 10:38:36 AND THAT'S WHERE OUR MONEY IS
08/27/09 10:38:39 GOING FOR.
08/27/09 10:38:40 THOSE OUR MOTION --THAT'S OUR

08/27/09 10:38:56 LOOKING AT THE MONEY AND
08/27/09 10:38:58 THE TIF DOLLARS IN THE BANK.
08/27/09 10:39:00 AND WITH THE WAY THE ECONOMY IS
08/27/09 10:39:01 RIGHT NOW.
08/27/09 10:39:03 I THINK THAT IT IS NOT A SMALL
08/27/09 10:39:05 AMOUNT UNLESS YOU LOOK AT WHAT
08/27/09 10:39:06 WE HAVE THAT WE COULD POSSIBLY
08/27/09 10:39:07 SPEND ON IT.
08/27/09 10:39:09 SO, I WANT TO SAY THAT IN
08/27/09 10:39:11 ANSWER TO THE IDEA THAT BUDGET
08/27/09 10:39:12 CONSTRAINTS.
08/27/09 10:39:13 WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT
08/27/09 10:39:16 CUTTING OFF ANY JOBS OR ANY
08/27/09 10:39:16 OTHER PROJECTS.
08/27/09 10:39:19 WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MONEY
08/27/09 10:39:21 THAT, IT LOOKS LIKE WE COULD

08/27/09 10:39:27 BEEN GETTING BY FOR YEARS WITH
08/27/09 10:39:30 USF, DOING ALL THE WORK FOR US
08/27/09 10:39:32 AND IT IS INCREDIBLE, IT IS
08/27/09 10:39:34 INVALUABLE, THE RESEARCH, THE
08/27/09 10:39:34 ENGINEERING AND THE DESIGN.
08/27/09 10:39:35 ALL THE WORK THEY HAVE DONE FOR
08/27/09 10:39:38 US AND I THINK IT IS A GREAT
08/27/09 10:39:39 IDEA.
08/27/09 10:39:39 AND I SUPPORT IT.
08/27/09 10:39:42 AND AT LEAST WE HAVE GOT TO
08/27/09 10:39:45 LOOK INTO THE POSSIBILITY OF
08/27/09 10:39:46 IT.
08/27/09 10:39:47 AND HOPE THAT COUNCIL WILL
08/27/09 10:39:49 SUPPORT OR THE BOARD WILL
08/27/09 10:39:50 SUPPORT THAT.

08/27/09 10:40:19 JEALOUS AND WANTED TO REPLICATE
08/27/09 10:40:22 A PROGRAM LIKE THAT IN THEIR

08/27/09 10:42:05 TWO THINGS VERY BRIEFLY.
08/27/09 10:42:08 THE CITY OF TAMPA WAS GOING TO
08/27/09 10:42:11 KEEP UP WITH THE COUNTY
08/27/09 10:42:13 IN
08/27/09 10:42:16 TERMS OF WORKING
08/27/09 10:42:16 WITH
08/27/09 10:42:18 REPRESENTATIVE CASPER'S OFFICE
08/27/09 10:42:19 AND RECEIVING A $100 MILLION
08/27/09 10:42:21 FEASIBILITY STUDY GRANT FROM
08/27/09 10:42:23 THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO LOOK
08/27/09 10:42:26 AT THE OPPORTUNITY OF FERRY
08/27/09 10:42:28 SERVICE WITH PINELLAS COUNTY
08/27/09 10:42:30 AND WE SAID NO, WE WEREN'T
08/27/09 10:42:32 INTERESTED AND SO WE ARE NOT
08/27/09 10:42:34 GETTING THE MONEY.
08/27/09 10:42:35 I HEARD THIS AT A
08/27/09 10:42:37 TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
08/27/09 10:42:37 MEETING.
08/27/09 10:42:40 I WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT CITY
08/27/09 10:42:41 TOOK THAT STANCE.
08/27/09 10:42:43 PARTICULARLY BECAUSE THE CRA
08/27/09 10:42:45 BOARD SAID WE ARE INTERESTING
08/27/09 10:42:48 IN EXPANDING ALL OUR MODES OF
08/27/09 10:42:48 TRANSPORTATION.
08/27/09 10:42:51 AND TO HELP OUR DONE TOWN TO BE
08/27/09 10:42:52 ATTRACTIVE AND VIBRANT AND
08/27/09 10:42:54 CONNECTED AS POSSIBLE.
08/27/09 10:42:55 I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED THIS

08/27/09 10:43:01 AND IT
08/27/09 10:43:03 WAS SUMMARILY DISMISSED
08/27/09 10:43:04 BY THE ADMINISTRATION.
08/27/09 10:43:06 I FEEL LIKE THERE IS A ROLE FOR
08/27/09 10:43:09 THE CRA BOARD IN THIS KIND OF
08/27/09 10:43:10 DECISION MAKING AND BECAUSE WE
08/27/09 10:43:12 HAVE BEEN SO ENGAGED WITH
08/27/09 10:43:14 TRYING TO EXPAND DIFFERENT
08/27/09 10:43:16 MODES OF TRANSPORTATION, I WAS
08/27/09 10:43:18 VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT OUR
08/27/09 10:43:21 CONCERNS
08/27/09 10:43:24 WEREN'T SOLICITED OR
08/27/09 10:43:24 REFLECTED.
08/27/09 10:43:26 I AM SORRY I DIDN'T KNOW THIS
08/27/09 10:43:29 WAS GOING TO
08/27/09 10:43:30 COME UP.
08/27/09 10:43:32 >> SIMILARLY, CAN, DOES THE CRA
08/27/09 10:43:34 HAVE ANY ROLE IN GIVING VICE
08/27/09 10:43:37 BECAUSE OF OUR INTEREST IN
08/27/09 10:43:38 MOBILITY TO ANY OTHER
08/27/09 10:43:40 TRANSPORTATION MODES IN
08/27/09 10:43:40 DOWNTOWN?
08/27/09 10:43:43 >> FIRST OF ALL, TO
08/27/09 10:43:44 SPEAK TO
08/27/09 10:43:47 THE ISSUE, CHIP FLETCHER, CITY
08/27/09 10:43:48 ATTORNEY.
