09/10/09 09:22:55 AS CHAIR OR WHATEVER.
09/10/09 09:22:58 THE QUESTION I HAVE, AND THIS
09/10/09 09:23:01 IS SORT OF
09/10/09 09:23:03 PERHAPS CURIOSITY,
09/10/09 09:23:05 IS WHEN YOU GUYS HAVE MEETINGS,
09/10/09 09:23:07 WHAT ARE THE HOT TOPICS, WHAT
09/10/09 09:23:10 ARE THE THINGS THAT GET PEOPLE
09/10/09 09:23:10 EXCITED?
09/10/09 09:23:11 I KNOW THERE'S A FEW OF YOUR
09/10/09 09:23:14 MEMBERS THAT CAN
09/10/09 09:23:16 GET EXCITED.
09/10/09 09:23:18 WHAT TYPES OF THINGS YOU KNOW
09/10/09 09:23:20 ARE THE HOT TOPICS THAT YOU
09/10/09 09:23:21 KNOW CREATE SOME DEBATE.
09/10/09 09:23:24 >> I THINK SOME OF THE HOT
09/10/09 09:23:25 TOPICS HAVE BEEN OLD HOT TOPICS
09/10/09 09:23:27 BUT THEY CONTINUE TO STAY HOT.
09/10/09 09:23:28 PARKING IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE
09/10/09 09:23:32 NUMBER ONE ISSUES THAT
09/10/09 09:23:32 WE HAVE.
09/10/09 09:23:35 YOU KNOW PARKING HAS BEEN AND
09/10/09 09:23:38 CONTINUES TO BE A
09/10/09 09:23:39 CHALLENGE.
09/10/09 09:23:40 IT WAS WONDERFUL WHEN WE WERE
09/10/09 09:23:42 ABLE TO TAKE THE PARKING METERS
09/10/09 09:23:44 OFF OF 7th AVENUE WHICH I HAVE
09/10/09 09:23:47 TO THANK YOU AND YOU
09/10/09 09:23:48 KNOW THE
09/10/09 09:23:50 MAYOR FOR HELPING US WITH THAT
09/10/09 09:23:51 BECAUSE IT WAS A TREMENDOUS
09/10/09 09:23:52 HELP BUT STILL WE NEED PARKING
09/10/09 09:23:53 DOWN THERE.
09/10/09 09:23:56 WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THE
09/10/09 09:23:59 PARKING REGULATIONS WITH THE
09/10/09 09:24:02 COURTESY TICKET WE SET UP
09/10/09 09:24:02 WE
09/10/09 09:24:04 CONTINUE WITH THAT BECAUSE WHEN
09/10/09 09:24:06 PEOPLE COME DOWN, VISITORS,
09/10/09 09:24:07 THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO RECEIVE A
09/10/09 09:24:08 COURTESY TICKET IF THEY WERE
09/10/09 09:24:11 PARKED IN THE WRONG METER
09/10/09 09:24:11 POSITION.
09/10/09 09:24:12 THAT IS ALMOST LIKE A THANK YOU
09/10/09 09:24:15 FOR COMING TO YBOR CITY.
09/10/09 09:24:18 PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A PAID
09/10/09 09:24:20 SPOT AND PAY IT SO THAT'S
09/10/09 09:24:23 DEFINITELY A HOT TOPIC
09/10/09 09:24:26 WE
09/10/09 09:24:27 CURRENTLY HAVE.
09/10/09 09:24:30 >> I SEE ON THE DRAFT
09/10/09 09:24:31 BUDGET
09/10/09 09:24:32 THERE'S $50,000 EARMARKED
09/10/09 09:24:33 TOWARDS THE PARKING DEPARTMENT.
09/10/09 09:24:34 IT DOESN'T ELABORATE ON THAT.
09/10/09 09:24:36 I DON'T WANT TO PUT YOU ON THE
09/10/09 09:24:39 SPOT IF YOU'RE AWARE OF IT.
09/10/09 09:24:41 I COULD ASK VINCE ABOUT IT.
09/10/09 09:24:44 >> NO, THE $50,000 IS
09/10/09 09:24:44 ACTUALLY,
09/10/09 09:24:46 I'M NOT SURE IF I'M GOING TO
09/10/09 09:24:48 TERM IT THE RIGHT WAY, ALMOST A
09/10/09 09:24:50 REIMBURSE MEANT FOR TAKING THE
09/10/09 09:24:51 METERS OFF THE STREETS.
09/10/09 09:24:52 IS THAT CORRECT, MARK?
09/10/09 09:24:54 THAT WE CAN GO AHEAD AND NOT
09/10/09 09:24:57 HAVE THE METERS
09/10/09 09:25:00 ON
09/10/09 09:25:03 THE STREETS
09/10/09 09:25:06 AND GET THAT
09/10/09 09:25:08 BACK IN THE
09/10/09 09:25:08 BUDGET.
09/10/09 09:25:09 >> OKAY, THANK YOU.

09/10/09 09:28:03 REDEVELOPMENT AREAS WITH THAT
09/10/09 09:28:04 THE MANAGERS AND COMMUNITIES
09/10/09 09:28:06 HAVE BEEN ASKING A LOT OF HARD
09/10/09 09:28:06 QUESTIONS.

09/10/09 09:28:11 SUPPORTING EXISTING
09/10/09 09:28:11 BUSINESSES, RESIDENCES AND
09/10/09 09:28:14 PRIVATE INVESTMENT THE WAY WE
09/10/09 09:28:15 WAN TO?
09/10/09 09:28:16 HAVE WE STREAMLINED OUR CROSS
09/10/09 09:28:16 STRUCTURE?
09/10/09 09:28:18 THIS BUDGET WE HAVE ELIMINATED
09/10/09 09:28:20 TWO STAFF POSITIONS.
09/10/09 09:28:20 ARE WE EVALUATING OUR
09/10/09 09:28:23 PRIORITIES IN LIGHT OF THE
09/10/09 09:28:23 REDUCED ENVIRONMENT.
09/10/09 09:28:25 YOU HAVE RECEIVED A LOT OF
09/10/09 09:28:26 BUDGET MODIFICATIONS THE PAST
09/10/09 09:28:27 COUPLE MONTHS AND THAT'S
09/10/09 09:28:29 REFLECTING SOME OF THAT WORK.
09/10/09 09:28:32 ARE WE INVESTING IN THE RIGHT
09/10/09 09:28:35 WAY TO PREPARE FOR WHEN
09/10/09 09:28:38 ECONOMIC CONDITIONS DO
09/10/09 09:28:38 IMPROVE.
09/10/09 09:28:41 ARE WE TAKING ADVANTAGES
09/10/09 09:28:42 IN THE
09/10/09 09:28:42 DOWNEY CON ME THERE ARE CERTAIN
09/10/09 09:28:44 SILVER LININGS AND ONE IS
09/10/09 09:28:45 REDUCED LAND PRICES.
09/10/09 09:28:47 ARE WE TAKING ADVANTAGES OF
09/10/09 09:28:49 OPPORTUNITIES LIKE THAT?
09/10/09 09:28:50 ARE WE PURSUING OTHER RESOURCES
09/10/09 09:28:52 AS AGGRESSIVELY AS WE CAN, THE
09/10/09 09:28:55 ENCORE PROJECT WOULD BE AN
09/10/09 09:28:58 EXAMPLE
09/10/09 09:29:00 OF THAT AND THERE ARE
09/10/09 09:29:01 OTHER SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES
09/10/09 09:29:03 LIKE THE PLANNING WORK WITH
09/10/09 09:29:03 HIGH SPEED AND LIGHT RAIL THAT
09/10/09 09:29:04 WILL PRESENT OPPORTUNITIES TO
09/10/09 09:29:07 US AND WE NEED TO
09/10/09 09:29:10 BE
09/10/09 09:29:14 ENGAGED
09/10/09 09:29:17 WITH . THIS IS AN OVERVIEW OF
09/10/09 09:29:19 THE BUDGET AND HOW IT'S
09/10/09 09:29:21 RECOMMENDED IN CATEGORIES OF
09/10/09 09:29:23 SPENDING AND ROUGHLY A THIRD
09/10/09 09:29:24 CAPITAL PROJECTS, 55 PERCENT
09/10/09 09:29:26 GOING INTO REDEVELOPMENT
09/10/09 09:29:26 INVESTMENT.
09/10/09 09:29:28 THE LARGEST PART OF THAT IS THE
09/10/09 09:29:29 DEBT SERVICE ASSOCIATED WITH
09/10/09 09:29:32 THE BONDS FOR THE CONVENTION
09/10/09 09:29:33 CENTER APPROXIMATELY 13 AND A
09/10/09 09:29:35 HALF MILLION DOLLARS.
09/10/09 09:29:38 ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES REMAIN
09/10/09 09:29:41 VERY LOW,
09/10/09 09:29:45 5.6 PERCENT.
09/10/09 09:29:47 AT THIS TIME I'D LIKE TO TURN
09/10/09 09:29:50 THIS OVER TO THE THREE
09/10/09 09:29:50 MANAGERS
09/10/09 09:29:51 PRESENTING THREE SLIDES IN EACH
09/10/09 09:29:51 AREA.

09/10/09 09:29:57 FORECAST, WHAT THEIR PRIORITIES
09/10/09 09:29:59 ARE FOR THE REDEVELOPMENT
09/10/09 09:30:01 PLANNING THIS YEAR AND WHAT
09/10/09 09:30:02 THEIR BUDGET RECOMMENDATION IS
09/10/09 09:30:04 THAT THEY HAVE WORKED OUT, WHAT
09/10/09 09:30:05 THE, WITH THE COMMUNITY
09/10/09 09:30:06 ADVISORY COMMITTEES.
09/10/09 09:30:08 >> I HAVE A QUESTION.
09/10/09 09:30:10 >> BRIEF QUESTION.
09/10/09 09:30:11 THE STIMULUS MONEY IS BEING,
09/10/09 09:30:15 WE'RE BEING TOLD
09/10/09 09:30:17 BY THE
09/10/09 09:30:17 REPRESENTATIVE KATHY CASTER,
09/10/09 09:30:19 THAT SHE WANTS TO WORK WITH US
09/10/09 09:30:21 TO BRING AS MUCH STIMULUS MONEY
09/10/09 09:30:23 AS SHE CAN BACK HERE BUT I KNOW
09/10/09 09:30:24 THE CITIES WORKED WITH US IN
09/10/09 09:30:25 DIFFERENT AREAS BUT I DIDN'T
09/10/09 09:30:27 KNOW IN YOUR CAPACITY IF YOU
09/10/09 09:30:28 HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET
09/10/09 09:30:29 WITH HER OFFICE TO ACTIVELY SEE
09/10/09 09:30:31 IF THERE WERE ANY STIMULUS
09/10/09 09:30:33 DOLLARS WE COULD BRING TO ANY
09/10/09 09:30:35 OF THE CRA AREAS.
09/10/09 09:30:36 >> WE HAVE ACTIVELY WORKED WITH
09/10/09 09:30:39 HER OFFICE ON A VARIETY OF
09/10/09 09:30:39 PROJECTS.
09/10/09 09:30:42 THE ENCORE PROJECT, THE CROSS-
09/10/09 09:30:45 TOWN CONNECTOR PROJECT AND
09/10/09 09:30:48 SOME
09/10/09 09:30:50 OTHERS AS WELL.
09/10/09 09:30:51 SHE'S BEEN A GREAT ALLY FOR THE
09/10/09 09:30:53 COMMUNITY IN HELPING US PURSUE
09/10/09 09:30:56 AVAILABLE STIMULUS DOLLARS AND
09/10/09 09:30:59 I KNOW
09/10/09 09:31:02 HER COMMITMENT
09/10/09 09:31:02 CONTINUES.
09/10/09 09:31:04 >> I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO
09/10/09 09:31:05 CHAT WITH A COUNCIL MEMBER FROM
09/10/09 09:31:06 ST. PETERSBURG AND HE SAID
09/10/09 09:31:07 THEIR COUNCIL MEETING WAS EVERY
09/10/09 09:31:09 OTHER WEEK AND THEY GET AN
09/10/09 09:31:11 UPDATE THEN HOW THINGS ARE,
09/10/09 09:31:12 WHAT THEY HAVE APPLIED FOR AND
09/10/09 09:31:14 RECEIVED AND WHAT'S IN THE
09/10/09 09:31:15 PIPELINE AND I WANT TODAY SHARE
09/10/09 09:31:16 WITH MY PIPELINE THAT IS
09/10/09 09:31:17 SOMETHING WE MIGHT WANT TO
09/10/09 09:31:19 CONSIDER, GETTING ON AT THE
09/10/09 09:31:20 VERY LEAST A MONTHLY BASIS
09/10/09 09:31:21 BECAUSE ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE
09/10/09 09:31:23 --WE READ ABOUT THEM IN THE
09/10/09 09:31:23 PAPER.
09/10/09 09:31:24 THEY'RE SORT OF OUT THERE BUT
09/10/09 09:31:26 WE DON'T REALLY KNOW WHERE THEY
09/10/09 09:31:26 ARE.
09/10/09 09:31:27 FOR EXAMPLE THE CROSS-TOWN
09/10/09 09:31:30 CONNECTOR WHICH WOULD BE A HUGE
09/10/09 09:31:30 --
09/10/09 09:31:30 >> YES.
09/10/09 09:31:32 >> BENEFIT FOR US AND I
09/10/09 09:31:34 PERSONALLY WORKED ON FOR A
09/10/09 09:31:34 THOUSAND YEARS.
09/10/09 09:31:35 I KNOW IT'S SORT OF SOMEWHERE
09/10/09 09:31:37 OUT THERE BUT I HAVE NO IDEA
09/10/09 09:31:40 WHEN WE'LL HEAR FROM DC, IS
09/10/09 09:31:42 THIS GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE IT
09/10/09 09:31:45 WILL ALSO AFFECT PALMETTO
09/10/09 09:31:45 BEACH
09/10/09 09:31:47 WHICH I THINK WILL BE A BOOST
09/10/09 09:31:48 FOR THAT.
09/10/09 09:31:51 WHERE ARE WE
09/10/09 09:31:51 WITH THAT?
09/10/09 09:31:55 >> THE CROSS-TOWN
09/10/09 09:31:55 CONNECTOR?
09/10/09 09:31:56 >> YES.
09/10/09 09:31:56 >> DOT.
09/10/09 09:31:57 THAT'S A STATE DOT FUNDED
09/10/09 09:32:00 PROJECT A LONG WITH THE
09/10/09 09:32:01 EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY AND THAT'S
09/10/09 09:32:03 AS YOU KNOW, ALL OF THE LAND IS
09/10/09 09:32:03 ASSEMBLED FOR THAT TO GO
09/10/09 09:32:05 FORWARD AND THAT IS ONE OF THE
09/10/09 09:32:08 REASONS IT WAS ABLE TO ATTRACT
09/10/09 09:32:11 STIMULUS MONEY BECAUSE
09/10/09 09:32:12 IT TRULY
09/10/09 09:32:14 IS A PROJECT THAT IS PROCEEDING
09/10/09 09:32:15 FORWARD.
09/10/09 09:32:16 I CAN'T RELATE TO YOU EXACTLY
09/10/09 09:32:16 THE TIME LINE.
09/10/09 09:32:19 >> BUT WE HAVE THE
09/10/09 09:32:19 MONEY?
09/10/09 09:32:21 >> YES, THE STATE COMMITTED
09/10/09 09:32:24 OVER $10 MILLION OF STIMULUS
09/10/09 09:32:24 FUNDS.
09/10/09 09:32:25 THESE ARE FEDERAL FUNDS THAT
09/10/09 09:32:28 CAME TO
09/10/09 09:32:30 THE STATE DOT AND WAS
09/10/09 09:32:31 ALLOCATED ACROSS THE STATE.
09/10/09 09:32:33 THIS IS ONE OF THE SINGLE
09/10/09 09:32:35 LARGEST ALLOCATIONS OUR
09/10/09 09:32:38 COMMUNITY, THAT THE TAMPA BAY
09/10/09 09:32:39 REGION RECEIVED.
09/10/09 09:32:42 IT WAS DEEMED A PRIORITY
09/10/09 09:32:43 PROJECT AND WE APPRECIATE THE
09/10/09 09:32:45 LEADERSHIP IN THAT AND MANY
09/10/09 09:32:48 OTHERS INCLUDING YOURSELF WHO
09/10/09 09:32:51 WORKED HARD TO
09/10/09 09:32:54 MAKE
09/10/09 09:32:54 THAT
09/10/09 09:32:54 HAPPEN.
09/10/09 09:32:57 >> THIS IS
09/10/09 09:33:00 ALMOST A $50 MILLION
09/10/09 09:33:02 PROJECT, LIKE 120 OR SOMETHING
09/10/09 09:33:03 MILLION I BELIEVE AND IT'S
09/10/09 09:33:05 COMING FROM THE STIMULUS MONEY
09/10/09 09:33:08 FOR I GUESS THE FIRST PHASE
09/10/09 09:33:10 AND
09/10/09 09:33:12 THEN THERE'S INVOLVEMENTS BY
09/10/09 09:33:13 THE EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY AS
09/10/09 09:33:15 WELL SO THERE'S AN ONGOING
09/10/09 09:33:18 DISCUSSION BUT IT'S ALMOST
09/10/09 09:33:20 A
09/10/09 09:33:20 $500 MILLION PROJECT.
09/10/09 09:33:23 >> IS IT DEFINITELY A GO?
09/10/09 09:33:23 >> YES.
09/10/09 09:33:26 WELL, IT'S NOT TOTALLY FUNDED.
09/10/09 09:33:28 I MEAN THE FIRST PHASE OF IT IS
09/10/09 09:33:29 BUT NOT TOTALLY.
09/10/09 09:33:32 BECAUSE IT'S A LARGE PROCESS,
09/10/09 09:33:34 50 MILLION.
09/10/09 09:33:37 >> I TALKED TO DON ABOUT IT
09/10/09 09:33:40 THE
09/10/09 09:33:43 OTHER DAY
09/10/09 09:33:45 AND I THINK THEY WERE
09/10/09 09:33:46 OPENING BIDS THE OTHER WEEK AND
09/10/09 09:33:48 SINCE THEY HAVE THEY WERE
09/10/09 09:33:49 OPENING BIDS AND IT'S
09/10/09 09:33:50 INTERESTING, I SAID IS IT A
09/10/09 09:33:52 DESIGN BILL AND HE SAID NO WE
09/10/09 09:33:55 HAVE DESIGNED AND BUILD IT.
09/10/09 09:33:58 IT'S A BUILD FINANCE OPEN BID
09/10/09 09:34:01 SO WE'RE ASKING THE CONTRACTORS
09/10/09 09:34:04 TO FINANCE IT
09/10/09 09:34:07 THE DIFFERENCE
09/10/09 09:34:09 AND TO BUILD IT AND SO ANYWAY
09/10/09 09:34:11 IT'S AN INTERESTING PROJECT.
09/10/09 09:34:14 FROM ALL OF THE DIFFERENT
09/10/09 09:34:16 VARIABLES I CAN'T SAY YOU KNOW
09/10/09 09:34:16 IT'S DEFINITELY HAPPENING BUT
09/10/09 09:34:19 IT'S MOVING A LONG
09/10/09 09:34:20 WELL.
09/10/09 09:34:20 >> OKAY.
09/10/09 09:34:20 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 09:34:21 >> ALL RIGHT.
09/10/09 09:34:21 >> ALL RIGHT.
09/10/09 09:34:24 AT THIS POINT I'D LIKE TO
09/10/09 09:34:25 TURN
09/10/09 09:34:27 THE PRESENTATION OVER TO BOB

09/10/09 09:34:55 YOU CAN SEE WE HAVE HAD A

09/10/09 09:35:01 CONVENTION CENTER BOND WHICH IS
09/10/09 09:35:04 A HUGE ECONOMIC ENGINE HERE IN
09/10/09 09:35:06 THE DOWNTOWN MARKETPLACE.
09/10/09 09:35:07 DRIVES LOTS OF VISITATION AND
09/10/09 09:35:08 HOTELS AND IT'S A GREAT THING
09/10/09 09:35:09 TO HAVE IN THE MARKET.
09/10/09 09:35:12 OUR PLANS FOR THIS
09/10/09 09:35:15 COMING YEAR

09/10/09 09:35:29 ELSE TO STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF
09/10/09 09:35:30 THE PARK AND SEE THE SCALE.
09/10/09 09:35:31 IT'S REALLY GOING TO BE FUN.
09/10/09 09:35:34 IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT
09/10/09 09:35:35 THING
09/10/09 09:35:37 FOR DOWNTOWN SO WE'LL ACTIVATE

09/10/09 09:35:42 PROJECTS.
09/10/09 09:35:43 THIS PAST YEAR WE HAD A COUPLE
09/10/09 09:35:45 PROJECTS THAT WERE REALLY
09/10/09 09:35:47 DRIVEN BY RESIDENTS AND
09/10/09 09:35:48 VISITORS TO DOWNTOWN.
09/10/09 09:35:50 WE IMPROVED THE LIGHTING A LONG
09/10/09 09:35:51 FRANKLIN STREET.
09/10/09 09:35:52 PEOPLE THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS
09/10/09 09:35:55 PERHAPS A LITTLE DIM.
09/10/09 09:35:56 WE REPLACED ALL OF THE GLOBES
09/10/09 09:35:57 ON THE DECORATIVE LIGHTS.
09/10/09 09:36:00 WE PAINTED THEM AND INCREASED
09/10/09 09:36:02 THE LIGHT.
09/10/09 09:36:04 WE ALSO INCREASED THE LIGHTS IN
09/10/09 09:36:05 GASLIGHT PARK.
09/10/09 09:36:06 AGAIN WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT LIVE
09/10/09 09:36:07 HERE IN DOWNTOWN AT NIGHT AND
09/10/09 09:36:10 WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT VISIT AND
09/10/09 09:36:11 FREQUENT THE RESTAURANTS AND
09/10/09 09:36:12 AGAIN AMENITIES AND LIGHT
09/10/09 09:36:13 LEVELS WHICH WERE NOT AS
09/10/09 09:36:14 IMPORTANT IN THE PAST, IT'S ONE
09/10/09 09:36:18 OF THE THINGS
09/10/09 09:36:21 WE
09/10/09 09:36:23 LOOKED AT.
09/10/09 09:36:25 WE HAVE INVESTED AT TAMPA
09/10/09 09:36:26 STREET AND WHITING STREET AND
09/10/09 09:36:28 THE DOWNTOWN CRA INVESTED MONEY
09/10/09 09:36:29 IN IMPROVING THE STREET SCAPE
09/10/09 09:36:32 IN FRONT OF THAT SO IT WAS A
09/10/09 09:36:32 PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
09/10/09 09:36:34 WHICH ENDED UP IN SAVING A VERY
09/10/09 09:36:35 NICE OLD BUILDING AND IF YOU
09/10/09 09:36:37 HAVE NOT BEEN BY THERE, THEY'LL
09/10/09 09:36:38 HAVE THE GRAND OPENING SOON.
09/10/09 09:36:41 IT'S A NICE AMENITY
09/10/09 09:36:42 FOR
09/10/09 09:36:42 DOWNTOWN.
09/10/09 09:36:44 WE'RE CONTINUING TO IMPLEMENT
09/10/09 09:36:44 THE IN TOWN ARTS PLAN.
09/10/09 09:36:47 THERE WILL BE A WHITE PAPER FOR
09/10/09 09:36:48 THE BOARD NEXT MONTH ON THE
09/10/09 09:36:51 PROGRESS OF THE GROUP AND WHERE
09/10/09 09:36:51 WE ARE.
09/10/09 09:36:54 WE'RE EXPANDING THE
09/10/09 09:36:54 DOWNTOWN

09/10/09 09:37:07 DOWNTOWN MARKETPLACE AND WE'RE
09/10/09 09:37:08 AGAIN CONTINUING TO SEARCH FOR
09/10/09 09:37:11 A PARTNER FOR
09/10/09 09:37:12 THE FEDERAL
09/10/09 09:37:14 COURTHOUSE AND WE HAVE SPENT A
09/10/09 09:37:16 FAIR AMOUNT OF TIME LOOKING AT
09/10/09 09:37:18 HOW WE COULD INTEGRATE WITH THE
09/10/09 09:37:20 FUTURE OF HIGH SPEED RAIL AND
09/10/09 09:37:21 LIGHT RAIL OPPORTUNITIES AND AS
09/10/09 09:37:24 YOU'RE WELL AWARE WE HAVE THE
09/10/09 09:37:27 EXPANSION OF THE HISTORIC
09/10/09 09:37:27 STREETCAR WHICH WE'LL COMMENCE
09/10/09 09:37:29 LATER THIS YEAR AND BRING IT UP
09/10/09 09:37:30 TO WHITING STREET.
09/10/09 09:37:31 MAKING A LITTLE MORE OF A
09/10/09 09:37:33 COMMUTER AMENITY FOR THE FOLKS
09/10/09 09:37:35 IN THE CHANNEL DISTRICT AND
09/10/09 09:37:36 YBOR CITY WHO WORK DOWNTOWN.
09/10/09 09:37:39 JUST AS A REMINDER THE DOWNTOWN
09/10/09 09:37:42 CRA WHICH INCLUDES HARBOR
09/10/09 09:37:44 ISLAND IS, THE NORTH BOUNDARY

09/10/09 09:37:56 QUESTIONS ON DOWNTOWN?
09/10/09 09:37:56 SIR?
09/10/09 09:37:58 >> THANKS, BOB.
09/10/09 09:37:59 ON THE FEDERAL COURTHOUSE
09/10/09 09:38:01 WALKING OR DRIVING BY THE OTHER
09/10/09 09:38:04 DAY I NOTICED THERE'S LIKE SOME
09/10/09 09:38:05 AIR PLANTS THAT HAVE GRABBED
09/10/09 09:38:06 ONTO THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING
09/10/09 09:38:07 AND THAT SORT OF THING.
09/10/09 09:38:09 I DON'T KNOW WHAT OUR
09/10/09 09:38:12 MAINTENANCE PLAN
09/10/09 09:38:15 OR BUDGET IS
09/10/09 09:38:18 AND I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S CRA
09/10/09 09:38:19 OR CITY OR BOTH OR NEITHER AND
09/10/09 09:38:20 MAYBE POWER WASHING.
09/10/09 09:38:22 I THINK WE JUST NEED TO KEEP IT
09/10/09 09:38:22 UP.
09/10/09 09:38:23 >> ACTUALLY THE CITY SPENDS A
09/10/09 09:38:25 FAIR AMOUNT OF MONEY, THE AIR
09/10/09 09:38:27 CONDITIONING BILL IS ABOUT
09/10/09 09:38:28 $8000 A MONTH AND THERE HAVE
09/10/09 09:38:29 BEEN ROOF REPAIRS DONE IN THE
09/10/09 09:38:32 PAST TO WORK ON THE AIR QUALITY
09/10/09 09:38:33 CONTROL BUT YES --
09/10/09 09:38:36 >> MAYBE IF YOU CAN PLAY
09/10/09 09:38:39 OUT
09/10/09 09:38:40 THE PUBLIC WORKS --
09/10/09 09:38:42 >> OKAY, I WILL DO THAT.
09/10/09 09:38:44 >> AND ONE OTHER QUESTION, ON,
09/10/09 09:38:47 I'M SORRY, ON
09/10/09 09:38:50 THE BUDGET, THE
09/10/09 09:38:53 BUDGET PAGE BREAK OUT,
09/10/09 09:38:54 $30,000
09/10/09 09:38:55 TO MARKETING AND PROMOTION.
09/10/09 09:38:57 IS THAT MONEY WE ROUTE TO THE
09/10/09 09:38:58 DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP?
09/10/09 09:39:01 >> NO, ACTUALLY TO GIVE YOU
09/10/09 09:39:01 A
09/10/09 09:39:04 COUPLE EXAMPLES, LAST YEAR
09/10/09 09:39:06 WE
09/10/09 09:39:06 HAD THE TWILIGHT CRITERIA AND
09/10/09 09:39:08 SHELBY PARK.
09/10/09 09:39:09 THE DOWNTOWN CRA ACTS AS A
09/10/09 09:39:10 COSPONSOR FOR SOME OF THESE
09/10/09 09:39:13 ACTIVITIES AND WHAT IT DOES IS
09/10/09 09:39:15 IT BRINGS PEOPLE INTO DOWNTOWN,
09/10/09 09:39:17 EXPOSES THEM AND WE ANTICIPATE
09/10/09 09:39:20 BECAUSE THE PARK IS COMPLETED
09/10/09 09:39:23 AND
09/10/09 09:39:26 EXPANDED AND THE PARK WILL
09/10/09 09:39:28 SOON BE COMPLETED.
09/10/09 09:39:29 WE RECOGNIZE OPPORTUNITIES FOR
09/10/09 09:39:30 ACTIVATING THE TWO AREAS SO WE
09/10/09 09:39:32 PUT A LITTLE MORE MONEY IN
09/10/09 09:39:34 THERE TO ACT AS CO-SPONSORS FOR
09/10/09 09:39:36 THE ACTIVITIES IN THOSE TWO
09/10/09 09:39:36 PARKS.
09/10/09 09:39:39 >> WHO IS GOING TO
09/10/09 09:39:40 BE I MEAN
09/10/09 09:39:42 ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE PERSON
09/10/09 09:39:43 WHO IS GOING TO SCHEDULE
09/10/09 09:39:43 ACTIVITIES.
09/10/09 09:39:44 >> THE PARKS DEPARTMENT
09/10/09 09:39:47 ACTUALLY HAS A SPECIAL
09/10/09 09:39:50 ACTIVITY'S GROUP THAT
09/10/09 09:39:54 DOES THAT

09/10/09 09:40:00 PLAN FOR THE PARK AND THE

09/10/09 09:40:06 AND AND WE'RE OUT THERE TRYING
09/10/09 09:40:07 TO HELP.

09/10/09 09:40:13 BOND WHICH IS
09/10/09 09:40:15 A SMALL PART OF THE BUDGET,
09/10/09 09:40:18 WHAT IS THE OUT YEAR?
09/10/09 09:40:21 >> IT ACTUALLY COINCIDES

09/10/09 09:40:38 >> I THINK WITH THE
09/10/09 09:40:39 PUBLIC
09/10/09 09:40:40 INVESTMENTS WE HAVE MADE WHICH

09/10/09 09:40:43 DOWNTOWN PARK WILL BE FABULOUS,
09/10/09 09:40:46 THE KEY IS HAVING THE
09/10/09 09:40:49 ACTIVITIES AND I HOPE THAT YOU

09/10/09 09:40:59 >> THANK YOU, WILL REALLY THINK
09/10/09 09:41:01 HARD ABOUT THE PROGRAMMING
09/10/09 09:41:02 BECAUSE THAT HAS TO BE THE
09/10/09 09:41:04 CRITICAL PART OF IT AND I WOULD
09/10/09 09:41:07 LIKE FOR YOU AT EVERY COUNCIL,
09/10/09 09:41:08 AT EVERY CRA MEETING TO A PRICE
09/10/09 09:41:10 US OF WHAT'S GOING ON BECAUSE
09/10/09 09:41:11 THIS IS PUBLIC, IT'S ON THE
09/10/09 09:41:13 AIR, WE CAN TELL PEOPLE, THE
09/10/09 09:41:14 PUBLIC WATCH --
09/10/09 09:41:14 >> GREAT.
09/10/09 09:41:16 >> AND IT CAN BE A MECHANISM
09/10/09 09:41:18 FOR REALLY PUBLICIZING WHAT'S
09/10/09 09:41:19 GOING ON.
09/10/09 09:41:20 AFTER MAKING THE SIGNIFICANT
09/10/09 09:41:21 INVESTMENT WE NEED EVERYONE TO
09/10/09 09:41:23 COME DOWN AND ENJOY IT AND
09/10/09 09:41:26 GENERATE A LOT OF
09/10/09 09:41:28 ACTIVITY AND
09/10/09 09:41:28 INTEREST.
09/10/09 09:41:30 >> SEPTEMBER 11th, WE HAVE THE
09/10/09 09:41:33 DEDICATION OF HERO'S PLAZA IN
09/10/09 09:41:36 SHELBY PARK AND THAT IS
09/10/09 09:41:37 TOMORROW MORNING.
09/10/09 09:41:38 >> ONE OTHER QUICK QUESTION,
09/10/09 09:41:41 MANY PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME WHEN
09/10/09 09:41:42 THE CHILDREN'S MUSEUM GETS
09/10/09 09:41:44 GOING AND WHEN THE TAMPA MUSEUM
09/10/09 09:41:46 OF ART GET GOING, WHERE WILL

09/10/09 09:41:59 TO HELP THE PEOPLE KNOW THE
09/10/09 09:41:59 ANSWER TO IT.

09/10/09 09:42:10 PUBLIC GARAGES HAVE BEEN
09/10/09 09:42:10 RESIGNED AND ONE OF THE THINGS
09/10/09 09:42:13 WE PROBABLY SHOULD TALK ABOUT,
09/10/09 09:42:14 A PROJECT THAT THE DOWNTOWN,
09/10/09 09:42:15 EXCUSE ME, THE PARKING DIVISION

09/10/09 09:42:51 CHILDREN'S MUSEUM, YES.
09/10/09 09:42:54 I'M FAIRLY COMFORT ABLE THAT
09/10/09 09:42:57 THE ADJACENT GARAGE CAN HANDLE
09/10/09 09:43:00 QUITE A BIT
09/10/09 09:43:01 OF THAT BECAUSE
09/10/09 09:43:03 THEY HAVE SET ASIDE A HUNDRED
09/10/09 09:43:05 SPACES FOR EACH ON THE WEEKEND
09/10/09 09:43:08 AND ON, DURING THE WEEK AND ON
09/10/09 09:43:11 THE WEEKEND THE GARAGE IS
09/10/09 09:43:12 VIRTUALLY EMPTY.
09/10/09 09:43:13 >> THE FEDERAL COURTHOUSE YOU
09/10/09 09:43:16 SAID YOU'RE SPENDING $8000.
09/10/09 09:43:18 WHAT OTHER EXPENSES DO WE HAVE
09/10/09 09:43:19 AND WHAT'S THE VISION FOR WHAT
09/10/09 09:43:20 WILL COME IN THERE?
09/10/09 09:43:23 >> WE HAVE HAD A SERIES OF
09/10/09 09:43:24 FOLKS WE HAVE SPOKEN WITH.
09/10/09 09:43:27 THE LAST GROUP WAS THE AIA
09/10/09 09:43:28 WHO
09/10/09 09:43:29 HAD A
09/10/09 09:43:32 FAIRLY DEFINITIVE PLAN TO DO A
09/10/09 09:43:33 RENOVATION PROJECT.
09/10/09 09:43:36 THE DIFFICULT IS THE FINANCING
09/10/09 09:43:37 MARKET AND THERE IN.
09/10/09 09:43:38 WE HAVE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH
09/10/09 09:43:40 A COUPLE FOLKS NOW THAT ARE
09/10/09 09:43:41 LOOKING AT HOSPITALITY, A
09/10/09 09:43:43 COUPLE OTHER PEOPLE LOOKED AT
09/10/09 09:43:44 PUBLIC VENUES BUT NO ONE HAS
09/10/09 09:43:47 STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE WITH
09/10/09 09:43:48 THE CHECKBOOK YET BUT WE'RE
09/10/09 09:43:51 CONTINUING TO WORK
09/10/09 09:43:52 ON THAT.
09/10/09 09:43:53 VIRTUALLY THE LION'S SHARE OF
09/10/09 09:43:54 THE MONDAY EACH MOST OF THE
09/10/09 09:43:56 MONEY SPENT IS REALLY FOR AIR
09/10/09 09:43:57 CONDITIONING TO CONTROL MOLD,
09/10/09 09:43:58 MILDEW AND THE AIR QUALITY
09/10/09 09:44:02 WITHIN THE BUILDING SO IT
09/10/09 09:44:04 DOESN'T DETERIORATE.
09/10/09 09:44:07 >> THANK
09/10/09 09:44:08 YOU.
09/10/09 09:44:11 >> THANK YOU.
09/10/09 09:44:12 >> IS THERE ANY MONEY FROM THE
09/10/09 09:44:14 TDC GOING TO THE CONVENTION
09/10/09 09:44:14 CENTER?
09/10/09 09:44:16 >> I DON'T KNOW.
09/10/09 09:44:17 >> YES, I KNOW.
09/10/09 09:44:20 >> THE
09/10/09 09:44:23 DEVELOPMENT
09/10/09 09:44:24 COUNCIL.
09/10/09 09:44:25 >> YES.
09/10/09 09:44:28 >> THAT'S PART OF THE
09/10/09 09:44:29 YOU KNOW
09/10/09 09:44:31 WHOLE, YOU OWN THAT, RIGHT.
09/10/09 09:44:33 >> WE'RE PUTTING MORE MONEY
09/10/09 09:44:36 THAN THAT INTO THE
09/10/09 09:44:36 CONVENTION
09/10/09 09:44:38 CENTER AS I THINK VERY
09/10/09 09:44:39 APPROPRIATELY WE SHOULD.
09/10/09 09:44:40 >> I AGREE WITH THAT.
09/10/09 09:44:42 I WAS TRYING TO FIND OUT ANY
09/10/09 09:44:44 ADDITIONAL MONEY BECAUSE I DO
09/10/09 09:44:47 KNOW THAT THERE WAS DISCUSSION
09/10/09 09:44:50 BACK, SOMETHING LIKE 20
09/10/09 09:44:52 SOMETHING GOING TOWARDS THE
09/10/09 09:44:54 SPORTS VENUE SO I WAS WONDERING
09/10/09 09:44:54 HOW MUCH --
09/10/09 09:44:56 >> YES, JOHN HAS, WE HAVE A
09/10/09 09:44:57 GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH
09/10/09 09:45:00 THE TDC AND I BELIEVE IT'S

09/10/09 09:45:53 THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD THINGS

09/10/09 09:46:00 THE BUILDINGS ARE
09/10/09 09:46:02 DOING WELL.

09/10/09 09:46:06 PERCENT, GRAND CENTRAL HAS ONE
09/10/09 09:46:08 VACANT UNIT IN THE ENTIRE

09/10/09 09:49:07 ES INTO ICONS AND ONE IS THE
09/10/09 09:49:09 SUBSTATION AND WE HAVE A PLAN
09/10/09 09:49:11 BASICALLY TO SCREEN THAT OFF

09/10/09 09:49:52 DO ALL OF THE DELIVERIES ON
09/10/09 09:49:55 CHANNEL SIDE DRIVE,

09/10/09 09:50:02 THEY HAVE A TRAILER NEXT TO THE
09/10/09 09:50:03 PORT GARAGE SO IF RESIDENTS
09/10/09 09:50:04 HAVE A PROBLEM THEY'LL GIVE OUT

09/10/09 09:50:23 TO
09/10/09 09:50:24 TALK TO.

09/10/09 09:50:28 POSSIBLE LIGHT RAIL IMPACTS AND

09/10/09 10:04:01 IN YBOR CITY AND DOING
09/10/09 10:04:02 IMPROVEMENTS IN THE CENTRAL

09/10/09 10:04:51 AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE DIRT LOTS
09/10/09 10:04:53 SO IT SEEMS LIKE CODE
09/10/09 10:04:56 ENFORCEMENT, I ASSUME IT'S CODE
09/10/09 10:04:59 ENFORCEMENT ISN'T
09/10/09 10:05:01 REALLY
09/10/09 10:05:01 HAPPENING.
09/10/09 10:05:03 PERHAPS ON THE NEXT MEETING YOU

09/10/09 10:05:08 COMING GETTING THE
09/10/09 10:05:10 LOTS
09/10/09 10:05:10 IMPROVED.

09/10/09 10:05:11 >> GREAT.
09/10/09 10:05:14 >> THE LAST MEETING WHICH MARK
09/10/09 10:05:14 CHAIRS WAS, THE GRACE PERIOD

09/10/09 10:05:20 APPLICATIONS IN, GET THE PLANS
09/10/09 10:05:23 IN HAS REALLY NOT, HAS
09/10/09 10:05:23 REALLY
09/10/09 10:05:24 NOT STARTED AND I'LL SEE THE
09/10/09 10:05:26 WEEKEND REPORT AS FAR AS GOING
09/10/09 10:05:27 OUT AND GIVING THE HEADS UP
09/10/09 10:05:29 THAT YOU NEED TO AT LEAST BE IN
09/10/09 10:05:30 THE PERMITTING PROCESS AT THIS
09/10/09 10:05:30 POINT IN TIME.
09/10/09 10:05:32 >> THE OTHER THING WHEN YOU
09/10/09 10:05:34 GIVE US YOUR REPORT, GIVE US A
09/10/09 10:05:35 YEAR'S TIME LINE.
09/10/09 10:05:35 WHEN THE RULES KICKED
09/10/09 10:05:36 NASHVILLE'S WHEN THEY WERE
09/10/09 10:05:37 SUPPOSED TO GET THEIR ACT
09/10/09 10:05:38 TOGETHER AND WHAT'S HAPPENING
09/10/09 10:05:40 NOW BECAUSE MY FEELING IS IT'S
09/10/09 10:05:41 BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES AND
09/10/09 10:05:43 WE NEED TO GET OUR ACT
09/10/09 10:05:44 TOGETHER.
09/10/09 10:05:44 >> VERY GOOD.
09/10/09 10:05:45 WE'LL BE HAVING COMING TO YOU
09/10/09 10:05:48 SHORTLY THE SECOND PART OF THAT
09/10/09 10:05:50 WHICH IS THE LIGHTING AND
09/10/09 10:05:51 PERSONNEL AT PARKING LOTS WHICH
09/10/09 10:05:53 WE SEPARATE OUT WITH A LITTLE
09/10/09 10:05:54 MORE TIME TO WORK ON THAT
09/10/09 10:05:55 PORTION.
09/10/09 10:05:58 >> THANK
09/10/09 10:06:02 YOU.
09/10/09 10:06:02 >> YES.
09/10/09 10:06:05 >>
09/10/09 10:06:12 >> THE STREET SWEEPING IS THE
09/10/09 10:06:14 FIRST I HAVE HEARD OF IT
09/10/09 10:06:16 BECAUSE WE CREATED THE STORM
09/10/09 10:06:19 WATER FEE OVER ON THE CITY
09/10/09 10:06:19 SIDE.
09/10/09 10:06:22 I ALWAYS HAD THE NOTION THE
09/10/09 10:06:25 STORM WATER WAS DOING
09/10/09 10:06:28 OKAY AND
09/10/09 10:06:29 I-HEARD ABOUT CUT BACKS AND YOU
09/10/09 10:06:31 KNOW I DON'T WANT TO
09/10/09 10:06:34 NECESSARILY PUT YOU
09/10/09 10:06:36 ON THE
09/10/09 10:06:36 SPOT.
09/10/09 10:06:37 BUT ANYWAY EITHER ONE OF YOU --
09/10/09 10:06:39 I MEAN HOW DOES IT COME ABOUT?
09/10/09 10:06:41 I'M SURE YOU DON'T RUN OVER
09/10/09 10:06:44 THERE AND SAY WE
09/10/09 10:06:46 HAVE AN EXTRA
09/10/09 10:06:49 $31,000 AND WE'D LIKE TO GIVE
09/10/09 10:06:52 IT
09/10/09 10:06:53 TO YOU.
09/10/09 10:06:55 >> STREET SWEEPING, THERE'S --
09/10/09 10:06:56 >> IS IT PRIVATE?
09/10/09 10:06:57 >> ACTUALLY YES, PART OF OUR
09/10/09 10:07:00 FEE FOR THE ST.
09/10/09 10:07:00 >> BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, YOU
09/10/09 10:07:02 KNOW I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE CUT
09/10/09 10:07:05 BACK PART OF IT.
09/10/09 10:07:07 AND ARE YOU GUYS AWARE OR
09/10/09 10:07:10 INDICATING THAT THIS
09/10/09 10:07:13 IS CITY
09/10/09 10:07:13 WIDE?
09/10/09 10:07:13 >> YOU'RE RIGHT.
09/10/09 10:07:14 THIS IS BIG BUCKS SPENDING.
09/10/09 10:07:18 I THINK I CAN
09/10/09 10:07:21 ANSWER
09/10/09 10:07:21 THIS
09/10/09 10:07:22 QUESTION THERE'S A LEVEL OF
09/10/09 10:07:24 SERVICE CITY WIDE AND STORM
09/10/09 10:07:24 WATER HAS A STREET SWEEPER
09/10/09 10:07:26 BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KEEP THAT
09/10/09 10:07:26 CLEAN FOR MAINTENANCE.
09/10/09 10:07:28 THEY HAVE BEEN PROVIDING FOR
09/10/09 10:07:31 YEARS, I CAME
09/10/09 10:07:34 HERE
09/10/09 10:07:40 IN 1999 .
09/10/09 10:07:40 AND
09/10/09 10:07:42 THE --IT'S BEEN THURSDAY,
09/10/09 10:07:45 FRIDAY, SATURDAY, ACTUALLY FOUR
09/10/09 10:07:46 DAYS A WEEK.
09/10/09 10:07:48 SO, A VERY LEGITIMATE CALL, I
09/10/09 10:07:50 CAN'T AFFORD TO DO THAT LEVEL
09/10/09 10:07:52 OF SERVICE IN YBOR CITY ANY
09/10/09 10:07:53 LONGER AND STAY WITH THE BUDGET
09/10/09 10:07:56 SO WE DID
09/10/09 10:07:59 MANDATING
09/10/09 10:08:02 LAST YEAR
09/10/09 10:08:05 BUT I HAD --
09/10/09 10:08:07 >> WE'RE NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT
09/10/09 10:08:09 THE ONCE A MONTH.
09/10/09 10:08:09 >> NO.
09/10/09 10:08:12 THIS IS AFTER EVERY FRIDAY AND
09/10/09 10:08:12 SATURDAY EVENING.
09/10/09 10:08:15 >> THAT SOUNDS A LITTLE MORE
09/10/09 10:08:16 LEGITIMATE AND THE PARKING I
09/10/09 10:08:18 GOT A LITTLE CONFUSED BECAUSE I
09/10/09 10:08:21 ASKED ABOUT THE PARKING
09/10/09 10:08:23 AND
09/10/09 10:08:26 THEN YOUR EXPLANATION
09/10/09 10:08:27 SATISFIED
09/10/09 10:08:27 ME.
09/10/09 10:08:28 JUST CLARIFY THAT AGAIN --
09/10/09 10:08:31 >> WHEN
09/10/09 10:08:33 THE DECISION WAS MADE
09/10/09 10:08:34 BY THE MAYOR TO ELIMINATE THE
09/10/09 10:08:38 METERS SHE WAS AWARE
09/10/09 10:08:38 AND THE
09/10/09 10:08:40 STAFF THE IMPACT WOULD BE ON
09/10/09 10:08:42 THE DEPARTMENT AS FAR AS LOST
09/10/09 10:08:44 REVENUES, THE FINES AND METERS
09/10/09 10:08:47 AND AT THAT TIME WE LOOKED
09/10/09 10:08:48 AT,
09/10/09 10:08:50 WOULD YCDC LOOK AT DOING THIS
09/10/09 10:08:52 SO WE BUDGETED FROM THE VERY
09/10/09 10:08:53 BEGINNING $50,000 AS THE
09/10/09 10:08:54 ALLOCATION TO THE PARKING
09/10/09 10:08:56 DEPARTMENT FOR THEM TO USE FOR
09/10/09 10:08:58 IMPROVEMENTS BUT ALSO OFF SET
09/10/09 10:09:01 SOME EXPENSES IN YBOR
09/10/09 10:09:01 CITY SO
09/10/09 10:09:05 THIS HAS BEEN IN THE BUDGET
09/10/09 10:09:07 FOR
09/10/09 10:09:10 THE SECOND
09/10/09 10:09:10 AND THIRD YEAR.
09/10/09 10:09:13 PROBABLY THE SECOND YEAR
09/10/09 10:09:16 YOU'LL
09/10/09 10:09:19 SEE THIS AND TO OFF SET SOME
09/10/09 10:09:22 OF
09/10/09 10:09:23 THE REVENUE LOSSES.
09/10/09 10:09:25 >> HAVE THEY DONE A CALCULATION
09/10/09 10:09:27 OF WHAT THE ACTUAL LOSSES WERE,
09/10/09 10:09:30 ONCE THEY STOPPED DOING THAT AS
09/10/09 10:09:31 OPPOSED TO THE --
09/10/09 10:09:32 >> THAT I NEED TO ASK.
09/10/09 10:09:34 WITH THE ABSENCE OF THE METERS
09/10/09 10:09:37 PRETTY MUCH THE PROJECTION THEY
09/10/09 10:09:40 HAD FROM
09/10/09 10:09:40 PAST HISS TREE.
09/10/09 10:09:43 >> IT WAS MUCH
09/10/09 10:09:46 HIGHER THAN THE
09/10/09 10:09:46 50,000.
09/10/09 10:09:48 >> IT WAS A CONTRIBUTION OF
09/10/09 10:09:49 SUPPORT TO THE PARKING
09/10/09 10:09:50 DEPARTMENT FOR LOSING A
09/10/09 10:09:53 SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF REVENUE.
09/10/09 10:09:56 IT WAS 6-FIGURE
09/10/09 10:10:00 AND HIGHER.
09/10/09 10:10:03 >> HOW ABOUT THE TRANSFER TO
09/10/09 10:10:06 DEBT SERVICE CENTRAL YBOR CITY
09/10/09 10:10:08 PAYMENT, $332,000 A YEAR.
09/10/09 10:10:11 IS THERE LIGHT AT THE END
09/10/09 10:10:14 OF
09/10/09 10:10:18 THAT TUNNEL?
09/10/09 10:10:19 >> THAT'S SOMETHING VINCE AND I
09/10/09 10:10:22 HAVE TO WORK ON
09/10/09 10:10:23 THIS YEAR.
09/10/09 10:10:25 IF YOU REMEMBER THIS CITY PART
09/10/09 10:10:28 OF THE CENTER, YBOR CITY
09/10/09 10:10:29 DEVELOPMENT, COMMIT TO A
09/10/09 10:10:32 LOAN OF THE C-BDG FUND.
09/10/09 10:10:33 THAT LOAN HAD A PERSONAL
09/10/09 10:10:34 GUARANTEE WITH IT FOR FIVE
09/10/09 10:10:37 YEARS AND WHEN
09/10/09 10:10:38 IT EXPIRED THAT
09/10/09 10:10:41 PERSONAL GUARANTEE THEY KNOW
09/10/09 10:10:44 LONGER PAID AGAINST THAT LOAN
09/10/09 10:10:46 AND CITY HAS HAD TO DO THAT.
09/10/09 10:10:49 AT THAT TIME WE PUT IN PLACE AN
09/10/09 10:10:52 ARRANGEMENT WITH YCDC AND
09/10/09 10:10:52 THE
09/10/09 10:10:54 CITY ADMINISTRATION SUCH THAT
09/10/09 10:10:55 THE FOLLOWING HAPPENS.
09/10/09 10:10:58 ALL OF THE TIPS THAT
09/10/09 10:10:59 IS PAID
09/10/09 10:11:02 INTO YBOR CITY CRA1 BY CENTRAL
09/10/09 10:11:05 YBOR CITY GOES TOWARDS
09/10/09 10:11:08 THE DEBT
09/10/09 10:11:09 SERVE THINGS.
09/10/09 10:11:10 OTHER TIPS MAKE UP THE BALANCE
09/10/09 10:11:12 BUT THAT GETS OFF SET BY
09/10/09 10:11:15 ANOTHER FUND OF THE CITY CALLED
09/10/09 10:11:16 THE MAIN TRANSFER FUND AND THAT
09/10/09 10:11:20 HAS BEEN IN PLACE SINCE
09/10/09 10:11:23 WE GOT
09/10/09 10:11:24 COUNCIL'S APPROVAL FOR MOVING
09/10/09 10:11:27 FORWARD ON THE
09/10/09 10:11:27 SITUATION.
09/10/09 10:11:30 THAT'S BEEN ABOUT FOUR YEARS
09/10/09 10:11:30 APPROXIMATELY.
09/10/09 10:11:32 WHAT I CAN TELL YOU AT THIS.THE
09/10/09 10:11:33 CHALLENGE OF THE MAIN TRANSFER
09/10/09 10:11:36 FUND IS RUNNING
09/10/09 10:11:38 OUT OF MONEY
09/10/09 10:11:39 AND OUR ABILITY, WE'RE REALLY
09/10/09 10:11:42 GOING TO HAVE
09/10/09 10:11:43 TO THINK THIS
09/10/09 10:11:45 YEAR AND WE HAVE TO THINK HOW
09/10/09 10:11:47 WE FUND THAT.
09/10/09 10:11:50 THE ANNUAL DEBT SERVICE IS 770,
09/10/09 10:11:51 SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
09/10/09 10:11:53 BEYOND THAT AS YOU MIGHT KNOW
09/10/09 10:11:56 THERE'S ALSO A BALLOON
09/10/09 10:11:59 OBLIGATION WITH THAT LOAN.
09/10/09 10:12:02 THE CENTRAL YBOR CITY CONTINUES
09/10/09 10:12:04 TO HAVE A, TO BE A CHALLENGE
09/10/09 10:12:05 FOR US TO FUND THAT ONGOING
09/10/09 10:12:08 OBLIGATION THAT THE
09/10/09 10:12:10 CITY HAS TO
09/10/09 10:12:10 REPAY THAT LOAN --
09/10/09 10:12:13 >> WE NEED TO CALL THE WHITE
09/10/09 10:12:14 HOUSE FOR MORE STIMULUS MONEY.
09/10/09 10:12:17 >> THAT WOULD
09/10/09 10:12:19 BE A NICE BAIL
09/10/09 10:12:22 OUT.
09/10/09 10:12:27 >> I WAS HOPING TO HEAR ABOUT
09/10/09 10:12:30 THE LIGHT AT THE
09/10/09 10:12:33 END
09/10/09 10:12:36 OF
09/10/09 10:12:41 THE
09/10/09 10:12:44 TUNNEL .
09/10/09 10:12:47 >> SWEEPING SOUND AND
09/10/09 10:12:47 THE
09/10/09 10:12:49 QUESTION IS I KNOW THE CHAPTER
09/10/09 10:12:52 WAS 163
09/10/09 10:12:55 AND
09/10/09 10:12:57 YOU CANNOT REPLACE
09/10/09 10:12:59 THE REFS NEW DOLLARS AND THAT
09/10/09 10:13:00 IS WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE
09/10/09 10:13:03 DOING AND YOU NEED TO TAKE A
09/10/09 10:13:03 LOOK AT THAT --
09/10/09 10:13:05 >> WE HAVE LOOKED AT THAT.
09/10/09 10:13:07 WHAT HAPPENED WAS THIS WAS A
09/10/09 10:13:10 LEVEL OF SERVICE PROVIDED
09/10/09 10:13:10 BY
09/10/09 10:13:12 THE CITY AND THIS IS A LEVEL
09/10/09 10:13:13 ABOVE THAT.
09/10/09 10:13:14 WE'RE GIVING EXTRA SERVICE THAT
09/10/09 10:13:15 WAS NOT COVERED IN THE BUDGET
09/10/09 10:13:18 AND COULD NOT BE COVERED IN
09/10/09 10:13:20 THE
09/10/09 10:13:21 BUDGET.
09/10/09 10:13:24 >> THAT'S NOT WHAT
09/10/09 10:13:24 I HEARD.
09/10/09 10:13:27 I HEARD THAT THE FUNDING,
09/10/09 10:13:30 TAKING THE TIFF DOLLARS TO MAKE
09/10/09 10:13:31 UP THE DIFFERENCE.
09/10/09 10:13:34 THAT SOUNDS LIKE OVER AND
09/10/09 10:13:37 ABOVE, SOUNDS LIKE SUPPLANTING
09/10/09 10:13:37 TO ME.
09/10/09 10:13:40 NOW THAT'S THE TERMINOLOGY YOU
09/10/09 10:13:40 USED.
09/10/09 10:13:41 >> THE STREET SWEEPING OR --
09/10/09 10:13:43 >> THE STREET SWEEPING.
09/10/09 10:13:45 >> I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION,
09/10/09 10:13:46 I MAY NEED MORE EXPLANATION, I
09/10/09 10:13:47 WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THERE
09/10/09 10:13:50 WAS A CERTAIN LEVEL OF SERVICE
09/10/09 10:13:50 PROVIDED.
09/10/09 10:13:51 THEY FOUND OUT ON CERTAIN
09/10/09 10:13:52 NIGHTS THAT SERVICE WAS NOT
09/10/09 10:13:53 BEING PROVIDED BECAUSE THE CITY
09/10/09 10:13:56 COULDN'T COVER THE EXTRA MONEY
09/10/09 10:13:59 SO WE USED TIFF MONEY TO
09/10/09 10:14:00 PROVIDE THE SERVICE THAT WASN'T
09/10/09 10:14:01 AVAILABLE NOR COULD BE
09/10/09 10:14:01 AVAILABLE.
09/10/09 10:14:04 THAT WAS MY
09/10/09 10:14:05 UNDERSTANDING.
09/10/09 10:14:07 MAYBE I'M MISUNDERSTANDING.
09/10/09 10:14:09 >> WHAT YOU DON'T WANT TO DO IS
09/10/09 10:14:12 FIND YOURSELF LEGALLY NOT
09/10/09 10:14:15 FOLLOWING THE FLORIDA STATUTES
09/10/09 10:14:18 AND YOU KNOW
09/10/09 10:14:21 AGAIN
09/10/09 10:14:24 WE'RE NOT
09/10/09 10:14:25 (INAUDIBLE) WE ALWAYS WANT TO
09/10/09 10:14:28 MAKE SURE WE FOLLOW WHAT
09/10/09 10:14:30 THE
09/10/09 10:14:31 FLORIDA STATUE REQUIRES, AND
09/10/09 10:14:32 THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN ANOTHER
09/10/09 10:14:34 ISSUE FOR ME, I HAVE BEEN
09/10/09 10:14:35 TRYING TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT
09/10/09 10:14:37 HOW MUCH ARE WE SPENDING IN
09/10/09 10:14:40 TERMS OF G REVENUE
09/10/09 10:14:41 VERSUS AND
09/10/09 10:14:43 I'M ALWAYS AMAZED I CAN NEVER
09/10/09 10:14:43 GET THAT INFORMATION.
09/10/09 10:14:46 THAT SORT OF THING BECAUSE YOU
09/10/09 10:14:49 CANNOT, YOU CANNOT TAKE GENERAL
09/10/09 10:14:50 REVENUE DOLLARS AWAY, IN THE
09/10/09 10:14:52 WAY THAT'S BEEN GOING THERE AND
09/10/09 10:14:55 START USING CIT OR TIFF
09/10/09 10:14:57 DOLLARS, NOT CRA BUT TIFF.
09/10/09 10:15:00 THAT'S A VIOLATION OF FLORIDA
09/10/09 10:15:00 STATUTE.
09/10/09 10:15:03 THE WHOLE INTENT IS FOR
09/10/09 10:15:04 REDEVELOPMENT, ECONOMIC
09/10/09 10:15:06 DEVELOPMENT AND SO I THINK YOU
09/10/09 10:15:07 KNOW YOU'RE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE
09/10/09 10:15:09 ON THAT SO I WANT TODAY MAKE
09/10/09 10:15:12 SHOWER WE'RE NOT
09/10/09 10:15:13 DOING THAT.
09/10/09 10:15:14 THAT WE'RE NOT BECAUSE WHAT I
09/10/09 10:15:16 HEARD HIM SAY THERE WAS A
09/10/09 10:15:19 SHORTAGE OR CUT
09/10/09 10:15:22 IN
09/10/09 10:15:28 STORM WATER
09/10/09 10:15:30 .
09/10/09 10:15:33 THE OTHER, YBOR CITY AND I'M
09/10/09 10:15:35 NOT SURE WE CAN --I'M SURE YOU
09/10/09 10:15:36 PROBABLY ALREADY RESEARCHED IT,
09/10/09 10:15:39 THAT IS THAT YOU'RE
09/10/09 10:15:39 NOW
09/10/09 10:15:41 SPENDING MONEY ON THEIR, FROM
09/10/09 10:15:45 THE CIT TO PAY DEBT SERVICE ON
09/10/09 10:15:45 THAT PROJECT.
09/10/09 10:15:46 >> WE HAVE LOOKED AT THAT
09/10/09 10:15:49 QUESTION AS WELL AND AGAIN THIS
09/10/09 10:15:51 IS DEBT SERVICE THAT WAS NOT
09/10/09 10:15:52 AVAILABLE FROM THE CITY.
09/10/09 10:15:55 IT HAD TO BE COMING FROM SOME
09/10/09 10:15:56 SOURCE AND WE HAVE USED TIFF
09/10/09 10:15:57 MONEY TO HELP WITH THE DEBT
09/10/09 10:15:59 SERVICE SO WE HAVE LOOKED AT
09/10/09 10:16:00 THAT QUESTION.
09/10/09 10:16:01 THESE ARE ALL CLOSE QUESTIONS
09/10/09 10:16:03 BUT THEY'RE, WE THINK WE'RE

09/10/09 10:16:18 TERMINOLOGY WE'RE USING ON THE
09/10/09 10:16:18 PROJECTS.
09/10/09 10:16:21 YOU TELL ME YOU KNOW WE CUT THE

09/10/09 10:17:12 FOR THOSE AREAS AND IN ESSENCE
09/10/09 10:17:14 THE WHOLE IDEA OF THAT PART OF

09/10/09 10:29:51 I'LL JUST COVER SEVERAL MAJOR
09/10/09 10:29:54 TOPICS AS I SAID EARLIER, THE
09/10/09 10:29:56 $2 MILLION OUTS OF THE $4
09/10/09 10:29:58 MILLION BUDGET WILL GO TOWARDS
09/10/09 10:30:00 THE START OF CONSTRUCTION ON

09/10/09 10:30:04 ENHANCEMENT PROJECT THAT'S
09/10/09 10:30:07 SLATED TO START CONSTRUCTION IN
09/10/09 10:30:09 THE SPRING OF NEXT YEAR.
09/10/09 10:30:12 THE COMMUNITY IS VERY SERIOUS
09/10/09 10:30:15 ABOUT INSURING AND INSISTING WE

09/10/09 10:30:33 INTERSECTION THAT
09/10/09 10:30:33 FLOODS.
09/10/09 10:30:35 THIS IS THE LAST OF THE
09/10/09 10:30:38 COMMITMENT THAT WE MADE
09/10/09 10:30:40 FOR THE
09/10/09 10:30:40 $800,000 MATCH SO WE'RE

09/10/09 10:30:42 OTHER RESOURCES TO BE ABLE TO
09/10/09 10:30:46 BRING THE PROJECTS
09/10/09 10:30:48 TO THE
09/10/09 10:30:48 TABLE.
09/10/09 10:30:50 LAND ASSEMBLY IS ALSO IMPORTANT
09/10/09 10:30:51 BECAUSE OF THE FAVORABLE
09/10/09 10:30:51 PROPERTY PRICES ONGOING RIGHT
09/10/09 10:30:54 NOW SO WE WANTED TO MIKE SURE
09/10/09 10:30:56 THE DOLLARS WERE THEREFORE
09/10/09 10:30:57 THAT.

09/10/09 10:32:42 IN PREVIOUS YEARS
09/10/09 10:32:43 WE HAD
09/10/09 10:32:44 ALLOCATED FUNDING FOR THE

09/10/09 10:32:52 INTO
09/10/09 10:32:52 PLAY.
09/10/09 10:32:55 THE FUNDING IS THERE, WE HAVE
09/10/09 10:32:56 MONEY SET ASIDE IN THE FY
09/10/09 10:32:59 BUDGET, IT'S STILL
09/10/09 10:32:59 THERE.
09/10/09 10:33:00 AND WE WILL BE IMPLEMENTK THOSE
09/10/09 10:33:02 DOLLARS, WE'RE ALREADY GETTING
09/10/09 10:33:05 A LOT
09/10/09 10:33:08 OF ACTION AROUND
09/10/09 10:33:09 THE
09/10/09 10:33:10 COMMERCIAL FACADE PROGRAM.

09/10/09 10:33:35 NAMES ARE APPROVED FOR A FORMAL
09/10/09 10:33:38 PROGRAM, SO WE CAN NAME THEM
09/10/09 10:33:38 PROPERLY.
09/10/09 10:33:40 >> Gwen Miller: THAT'S REAL
09/10/09 10:33:40 NICE.
09/10/09 10:33:41 THAT'S A REAL NICE.
09/10/09 10:33:43 I DRIVE BY EVERY DAY.
09/10/09 10:33:46 PEOPLE ARE NICE.
09/10/09 10:33:48 AND PEOPLE ARE ALREADY USING
09/10/09 10:33:48 THAT.
09/10/09 10:33:51 REALLY HAS ADD A LOT TO
09/10/09 10:33:52 THAT
09/10/09 10:33:52 AREA.
09/10/09 10:33:54 >> JUST MAKE SURE YOU SPELL
09/10/09 10:33:55 TOM'S NAME RIGHT.
09/10/09 10:33:57 >> Gwen Miller: NOT GOING TO BE
09/10/09 10:33:57 MY NAME.
09/10/09 10:34:00 >> THAT WAS ALL DONE THROUGH
09/10/09 10:34:02 A
09/10/09 10:34:02 COMMUNITY PROCESS.
09/10/09 10:34:04 THE COMMUNITY ACTUALLY MADE THE
09/10/09 10:34:04 RECOMMENDATION, AND APPROVED
09/10/09 10:34:07 THE NAMES FOR
09/10/09 10:34:08 YOU.
09/10/09 10:34:10 SO YOU WILL BE SEEING THAT
09/10/09 10:34:10 SHORTLY.
09/10/09 10:34:11 >> Gwen Miller: HOW MANY HAVE
09/10/09 10:34:13 WE DONE IN EAST TAMPA?
09/10/09 10:34:16 >> THIS WILL BE THE SECOND ONE.
09/10/09 10:34:17 BECAUSE OF THE REDUCTION OF THE
09/10/09 10:34:20 TIF DOLLARS, THE OTHER POND WE
09/10/09 10:34:23 WERE GOING TO
09/10/09 10:34:24 DO ON THE 22nd
09/10/09 10:34:25 STREET NEAR FERRELL MIDDLE
09/10/09 10:34:28 SCHOOL HAS BEEN PUT ON HOLD.
09/10/09 10:34:29 WE HAVE THE DESIGN FOR IT.
09/10/09 10:34:31 JUST WAITING FOR THE
09/10/09 10:34:33 APPROPRIATE TIME WHERE WE CAN
09/10/09 10:34:35 SPEND THE DOLLARS ON IT.
09/10/09 10:34:37 >> Gwen Miller: WHAT ABOUT THE
09/10/09 10:34:38 ONE ON OSBORN?
09/10/09 10:34:39 >> IT'S NORTH OF OSBORN.
09/10/09 10:34:42 THAT WAS ON THE FAIR OAKS
09/10/09 10:34:42 COMMUNITY CENTER.
09/10/09 10:34:45 >> TALKING ABOUT THE ONE
09/10/09 10:34:46 ON
09/10/09 10:34:46 OSBORN AND 30th.
09/10/09 10:34:49 >> THE BIG ONE?
09/10/09 10:34:52 THAT WAS NOT ONE OF THE THREE
09/10/09 10:34:53 ORIGINAL DEMONSTRATION
09/10/09 10:34:53 PROJECTS.
09/10/09 10:34:54 THE THREE DEMONSTRATIONS WERE
09/10/09 10:34:57 THE FAIR OAKS POND, MARTIN
09/10/09 10:34:59 LUTHER KING, AND THE 22nd
09/10/09 10:35:02 STREET POND ACROSS FROM FAIR
09/10/09 10:35:05 OAKS MIDDLE
09/10/09 10:35:06 SCHOOL.
09/10/09 10:35:09 >> NOT AT THE ONE ON
09/10/09 10:35:09 OSMOND.
09/10/09 10:35:12 >> NOT AT THIS
09/10/09 10:35:12 TIME.
09/10/09 10:35:14 WHEN DOLLARS BECOME AVAILABLE,
09/10/09 10:35:17 WE'LL PUT THESE OTHER PONDS
09/10/09 10:35:17 IN
09/10/09 10:35:18 THE PROGRAM.
09/10/09 10:35:18 >> Gwen Miller: THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:35:20 >> THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:35:23 I HAVE TO SAY THE ONE ON
09/10/09 10:35:24 MARTIN
09/10/09 10:35:26 LUTHER KING IS COMPLETELY
09/10/09 10:35:28 GLAMOROUS, WHAT WAS THE COST OF
09/10/09 10:35:28 THAT?
09/10/09 10:35:29 >> JUST ADD $1 MILLION.
09/10/09 10:35:32 >> OKAY, I THINK WE SHOULD SEE
09/10/09 10:35:35 HOW THE REQUESTS GO WITH THE
09/10/09 10:35:35 FACADE PROGRAM.
09/10/09 10:35:38 I REALLY BELIEVE IN THE
09/10/09 10:35:40 FACADE
09/10/09 10:35:40 PROGRAM.
09/10/09 10:35:42 I ASK TO GIVE AN UPDATE, HOW
09/10/09 10:35:44 MANY FACADES, AND WHERE WE CAN
09/10/09 10:35:45 TAKE A LOOK AT THEM.
09/10/09 10:35:47 IF WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF
09/10/09 10:35:50 REQUESTS
09/10/09 10:35:53 FOR THE FACADES,
09/10/09 10:35:55 MISTAKE WE COULD TAKE A PORTION
09/10/09 10:35:58 OF THAT MONEY, AND THINK ABOUT
09/10/09 10:35:59 DOING ANOTHER POND.
09/10/09 10:36:02 I'M GOING TO NOMINATE IT FOR
09/10/09 10:36:05 THE SILK PURSE AWARD, YOU
09/10/09 10:36:07 TAKE
09/10/09 10:36:08 SOMETHING THAT'S AN EYESORE AND
09/10/09 10:36:11 TURN IT INTO
09/10/09 10:36:14 SOMETHING
09/10/09 10:36:15 LOVELY.
09/10/09 10:36:18 YOU'RE GOING TO SEE.
09/10/09 10:36:19 QUICK QUESTION.
09/10/09 10:36:21 THE MONEY 350,000, IS THAT FOR
09/10/09 10:36:22 PARKS OR IS THAT FOR BUSINESS,
09/10/09 10:36:25 OR
09/10/09 10:36:27 WHAT KIND OF LAND ASSEMBLAGE
09/10/09 10:36:28 IS IT.
09/10/09 10:36:30 >> IT CAN BE USED FOR
09/10/09 10:36:31 REDEVELOPMENT PURPOSES.
09/10/09 10:36:34 >> WE BUY
09/10/09 10:36:36 THEM AND FLIP THEM?
09/10/09 10:36:36 OR NOT FLIP.
09/10/09 10:36:38 SO POTENTIALLY, WE WOULD GET
09/10/09 10:36:39 THAT MONEY BACK, THEN WE COULD
09/10/09 10:36:42 SPEND IT ON IMPROVING SOME OF
09/10/09 10:36:43 THE PONDS.
09/10/09 10:36:43 >> ABSOLUTELY.
09/10/09 10:36:44 >> OKAY.
09/10/09 10:36:46 KEEP THAT IN MIND.
09/10/09 10:36:47 I HATE TO SEE MONEY SITTING.
09/10/09 10:36:49 WHEN WE HAVE A PLAN THAT'S
09/10/09 10:36:51 READY TO GO LIKE YOU SAID WE
09/10/09 10:36:53 HAVE FOR THIS OTHER POND, YOU
09/10/09 10:36:56 KNOW, I THINK THAT
09/10/09 10:36:56 LAND
09/10/09 10:36:58 ASSEMBLAGE IS REALLY IMPORTANT.
09/10/09 10:37:00 BUT IF SOME ADDITIONAL MONEY
09/10/09 10:37:01 WERE TO BECOME AVAILABLE, AND I
09/10/09 10:37:04 AGAIN ENCOURAGE YOU TO LOOK
09/10/09 10:37:06 AGAIN AT STIMULUS MONEY FOR
09/10/09 10:37:06 POND TRANSFORMATION.
09/10/09 10:37:09 >> ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE
09/10/09 10:37:12 PARTNERED AND LEVERAGED SOME OF
09/10/09 10:37:13 THE DOLLARS.
09/10/09 10:37:15 IF WE'RE SUCCESSFUL IN GETTING
09/10/09 10:37:18 THIS NSP2 MONEY, WHICH IS PART
09/10/09 10:37:19 OF THE STIMULUS DOLLARS, THAT'S
09/10/09 10:37:21 $10 MILLION THAT NOW COULD GO
09/10/09 10:37:23 INTO OUR RESOURCES, AND THEN WE
09/10/09 10:37:25 COULD START LOOKING AT FUNDING
09/10/09 10:37:27 SOME OF THESE PREVIOUS PROJECTS
09/10/09 10:37:28 THAT WE'VE TEED UP.
09/10/09 10:37:30 WE'VE GOT OUR FINGERS CROSSED
09/10/09 10:37:31 THIS WILL HAPPEN SHORTLY.
09/10/09 10:37:32 >> THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:37:34 HOPEFULLY EACH MONTH WHEN WE
09/10/09 10:37:34 GET OUR REPORT FROM YOUR AREA,
09/10/09 10:37:37 YOU'LL LET US
09/10/09 10:37:39 NOW HOW THE
09/10/09 10:37:40 FACADE PROGRAM IS WORKING.
09/10/09 10:37:43 >> YES, VERY MUCH
09/10/09 10:37:43 SO.

09/10/09 10:37:54 IS THAT $2 MILLION TAKE US TO
09/10/09 10:37:55 THE END OF THE PROJECT?
09/10/09 10:37:58 OR WE ANTICIPATE THAT IS
09/10/09 10:37:59 GOING
09/10/09 10:38:01 TO BE CARRIED OUT?
09/10/09 10:38:02 >> REALLY AN $11 MILLION
09/10/09 10:38:04 COMMITMENT WE'VE MADE OUT OF
09/10/09 10:38:06 TIF THAT WILL GET FUNDED OVER
09/10/09 10:38:07 THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS.
09/10/09 10:38:10 THIS IS PHASE 1 FROM

09/10/09 10:38:15 LUTHER KING DOWN TO LAKE
09/10/09 10:38:15 AVENUE.
09/10/09 10:38:16 THAT'S OUR COMMITMENT TO THAT
09/10/09 10:38:16 PORTION.
09/10/09 10:38:19 >> I'M SURE IT'S GOING TO BE
09/10/09 10:38:19 EXCITING.
09/10/09 10:38:22 THE CITY HAS DONE
09/10/09 10:38:25 SOME GOOD
09/10/09 10:38:26 WORK.
09/10/09 10:38:27 ELSEWHERE, THE ENVIRONMENTAL
09/10/09 10:38:28 CLEANUP AND ENVIRONMENTAL
09/10/09 10:38:30 DETECTIVES, SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD
09/10/09 10:38:30 TV SHOW.
09/10/09 10:38:33 NOT TODAY BY ANY MEANS, COULD
09/10/09 10:38:35 WE GET A WRITTEN REPORT FROM
09/10/09 10:38:36 TPD THAT WE'VE HAD THE
09/10/09 10:38:37 ENVIRONMENTAL DETECTIVE PROGRAM
09/10/09 10:38:40 IN PLACE FOR I
09/10/09 10:38:43 THINK TWO YEARS
09/10/09 10:38:43 NOW OR MORE.
09/10/09 10:38:44 >> YES.
09/10/09 10:38:47 >> COULD WE GET A WRITTEN
09/10/09 10:38:50 REPORT
09/10/09 10:38:53 AND SEE WHAT THEY'RE UP
09/10/09 10:38:53 TOO?
09/10/09 10:38:53 LIKEWISE, THE ENVIRONMENTAL
09/10/09 10:38:55 CLEAN IS PROBABLY GOING TO
09/10/09 10:38:58 SOLID WASTE FOR LOT CLEANUP AND
09/10/09 10:39:01 THAT SORT OF THING.
09/10/09 10:39:01 >> CLEAN CITY DIVISION.
09/10/09 10:39:04 IT'S FUNDING A CLEAN CITY TEAM
09/10/09 10:39:05 FOR EAST TAMPA.
09/10/09 10:39:08 WE HAVE OUR OWN SEPARATE
09/10/09 10:39:10 TEAM
09/10/09 10:39:12 THAT TAKES CARE OF OUR
09/10/09 10:39:12 THOROUGHFARES.
09/10/09 10:39:13 >> John Dingfelder: A HIGH
09/10/09 10:39:13 LEVEL OF SERVICE.
09/10/09 10:39:16 >> IT ALSO INCLUDES THE SUMMER
09/10/09 10:39:16 YOUTH PROGRAM.
09/10/09 10:39:18 WE HIRE ABOUT 66 YOUTH DURING
09/10/09 10:39:20 THE SUMMER THAT WORK WITH THE
09/10/09 10:39:23 CLEAN CITY DIVISION IN CLEANING

09/10/09 10:39:29 >> John Dingfelder: GOOD.
09/10/09 10:39:31 LAST, THE ANNUAL EXPENSE,
09/10/09 10:39:31 $40,000.
09/10/09 10:39:32 IS THAT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS
09/10/09 10:39:33 BEEN ON THE BUDGET?
09/10/09 10:39:35 >> NO, THAT'S A RECURRING COST.
09/10/09 10:39:36 AS YOU RECALL SEVERAL YEARS
09/10/09 10:39:39 AGO, WHEN WE
09/10/09 10:39:42 PUT THE LAKE
09/10/09 10:39:45 AVENUE STREETLIGHTING,
09/10/09 10:39:46 THE
09/10/09 10:39:47 ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM, THERE WERE
09/10/09 10:39:48 SOME DECORATIVE STREETLIGHTING,
09/10/09 10:39:50 IN FOR VEHICLES.
09/10/09 10:39:51 THIS IS MAINLY FOR PEDESTRIAN
09/10/09 10:39:51 AND AESTHETIC.
09/10/09 10:39:54 WE HAVE TO PAY THE LIGHT
09/10/09 10:39:57 BILL
09/10/09 10:39:57 THERE.
09/10/09 10:39:58 THESE ARE RECURRING COSTS.
09/10/09 10:39:59 >> John Dingfelder: ARE WE
09/10/09 10:40:02 PAYING FOR THE
09/10/09 10:40:03 CAPITAL EXPENSE
09/10/09 10:40:06 OF THE LIGHTS, THE ELECTRIC
09/10/09 10:40:06 BILL?
09/10/09 10:40:07 OR IS IT ROLLED IN TOGETHER?
09/10/09 10:40:09 >> IT'S FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF
09/10/09 10:40:12 TIME, WE'RE ACTUALLY OUT OF
09/10/09 10:40:13 THOSE DOLLARS.
09/10/09 10:40:15 WE PAY ABOUT $12,000, ABOUT
09/10/09 10:40:17 $1,000 A MONTH FOR THE ELECTRIC
09/10/09 10:40:17 BILL.
09/10/09 10:40:18 IT'S NOT CAPITAL COSTS.
09/10/09 10:40:21 THE CAPITAL COSTS WERE INCLUDED
09/10/09 10:40:24 WHEN WE DID THE ENHANCEMENT
09/10/09 10:40:26 PROJECT ITSELF ABOUT THREE
09/10/09 10:40:26 YEARS AGO.
09/10/09 10:40:29 >> John Dingfelder: SO I GUESS
09/10/09 10:40:31 I'M CONFUSED NOW, $12,000 A
09/10/09 10:40:33 YEAR SO WHAT'S THE 40?
09/10/09 10:40:35 >> THAT'S THE ADDITIONAL
09/10/09 10:40:35 LIGHTING.
09/10/09 10:40:37 ALSO AS YOU RECALL, WE ENHANCED
09/10/09 10:40:39 LIGHTING THROUGHOUT ALL OF
09/10/09 10:40:40 THESE NEIGHBORHOODS.
09/10/09 10:40:41 WHEN YOU ADD THESE ADDITIONAL
09/10/09 10:40:44 LIGHTS THEY COME WITH A BILL.
09/10/09 10:40:46 SO IT'S ACTUALLY PAYING FOR THE
09/10/09 10:40:49 ADDITIONAL SERVICE TO HAVE
09/10/09 10:40:50 THAT
09/10/09 10:40:52 ENHANCED LIGHTING THROUGHOUT
09/10/09 10:40:52 THE COMMUNITY.
09/10/09 10:40:55 >> John Dingfelder: I DON'T
09/10/09 10:40:55 RECALL.
09/10/09 10:40:56 >> THOSE WERE BUDGETED I
09/10/09 10:40:59 BELIEVE TWO YEARS AGO IS
09/10/09 10:41:00 WHEN
09/10/09 10:41:01 WE START PAYING THOSE ELECTRIC
09/10/09 10:41:02 BILLS.
09/10/09 10:41:04 >> John Dingfelder: DID WE
09/10/09 10:41:06 ENTER INTO A CONTRACT?
09/10/09 10:41:08 A SEPARATE CONTRACT?
09/10/09 10:41:08 >> THAT'S CORRECT.
09/10/09 10:41:09 THROUGH OUR TRANSPORTATION
09/10/09 10:41:09 DEPARTMENT.
09/10/09 10:41:11 >> John Dingfelder: I'M NOT
09/10/09 10:41:13 AWARE OF ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE
09/10/09 10:41:16 CITY I KNOW THE CITY
09/10/09 10:41:17 PAYS A BIG
09/10/09 10:41:19 ELECTRIC BILL WITH TICO.
09/10/09 10:41:21 I'M NOT AWARE OF ANY SPECIFIC
09/10/09 10:41:23 NEIGHBORHOODS THAT HAVE BEEN
09/10/09 10:41:26 OBLIGATED OTHER THAN
09/10/09 10:41:26 THE CDD'S.
09/10/09 10:41:28 >> THERE ARE SEVERAL OF THOSE.
09/10/09 10:41:31 >> John Dingfelder: I'M
09/10/09 10:41:32 CURIOUS.
09/10/09 10:41:33 >> THAT SHOULD BE A SEPARATE
09/10/09 10:41:36 CONVERSATION BECAUSE IT'S
09/10/09 10:41:38 LIKE
09/10/09 10:41:39 YOU PAY FOR IT FOREVER.
09/10/09 10:41:41 >> John Dingfelder: I KNOW.
09/10/09 10:41:42 >> THERE ARE MORE ECONOMICALLY
09/10/09 10:41:43 STRATEGIC WAYS TO DO IT.
09/10/09 10:41:46 WE SHOULD
09/10/09 10:41:47 HAVE THAT
09/10/09 10:41:50 CONVERSATION AT A DIFFERENT
09/10/09 10:41:50 TIME.
09/10/09 10:41:51 >> John Dingfelder: THANK YOU
09/10/09 10:41:51 ED.
09/10/09 10:41:54 >> WE'LL

09/10/09 10:42:07 TWO OF OUR COMMUNITY REDEVELOP.
09/10/09 10:42:09 AREAS, IN WHICH A LOT OF OUR
09/10/09 10:42:12 WORK HAS VERY
09/10/09 10:42:15 LITTLE TO DO WITH
09/10/09 10:42:18 IMPLEMENTING OR ADMINISTERING
09/10/09 10:42:21 TIF BUDGETS.
09/10/09 10:42:23 THESE ARE TAMPA HEIGHTS AND
09/10/09 10:42:23 RIVERFRONT.
09/10/09 10:42:26 RIGHT NOW IN BOTH OF MY
09/10/09 10:42:29 AREAS
09/10/09 10:42:32 TWO VERY EXCITING
09/10/09 10:42:33 PUBLIC
09/10/09 10:42:35 PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS UNDERWAY
09/10/09 10:42:36 TOGETHER TOTALING APPROXIMATELY
09/10/09 10:42:38 $1 BILLION IN REDEVELOPMENT ON
09/10/09 10:42:40 LESS THAN 80 ACRES OF LAND.
09/10/09 10:42:41 THAT BEING THE HEIGHTS
09/10/09 10:42:42 DEVELOPMENT SHOULD WE BE ABLE
09/10/09 10:42:44 TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT THIS
09/10/09 10:42:45 YEAR.
09/10/09 10:42:47 SO VERY EXCITING THINGS
09/10/09 10:42:50 HAPPENING IN BOTH NEIGHBORHOODS
09/10/09 10:42:51 ALTHOUGH NOT NECESSARILY
09/10/09 10:42:54 RELATED TO
09/10/09 10:42:56 TIF BUDGETS.
09/10/09 10:42:59 SO WE'LL START IN CENTRAL PARK.
09/10/09 10:43:01 WHICH IS LOCATED BETWEEN
09/10/09 10:43:03 DOWNTOWN AND YBOR CITY.
09/10/09 10:43:05 WHILE THE PUBLIC PRIVATE
09/10/09 10:43:06 PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AND
09/10/09 10:43:08 CONVERSATIONS PLAYING OUT THERE
09/10/09 10:43:10 ARE EXCITING, YOU CAN SEE THAT
09/10/09 10:43:12 MY TIF BUDGET IS NOT EXCITING.
09/10/09 10:43:15 IT'S DECLINING, AS IS THE CASE
09/10/09 10:43:18 IN ALL OF THE
09/10/09 10:43:20 CRA'S AND THIS
09/10/09 10:43:23 YEAR'S TIF BUDGET APPROXIMATELY
09/10/09 10:43:25 31,000, WHICH WOULD BE GO

09/10/09 10:43:28 OPERATION AND ADMINISTRATIVE
09/10/09 10:43:29 COST FOR THE DEPARTMENT.
09/10/09 10:43:30 LOOKING FORWARD INTO THE NEW
09/10/09 10:43:33 YEAR WE STILL
09/10/09 10:43:36 REMAIN

09/10/09 10:46:06 IN THE BEG
09/10/09 10:46:07 BUILDING, WOULD BE CO-OCCUPIED.
09/10/09 10:46:10 >> OKAY, YOU AND BOB ARE

09/10/09 10:47:12 RIVER WALK, SO WE'LL BE WORKING
09/10/09 10:47:14 HAND IN HAND ON THAT, ALSO
09/10/09 10:47:18 WORKING WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF
09/10/09 10:47:19 SOLID WASTE ON SECURING A
09/10/09 10:47:21 BROWNSVILLE DESIGNATION FOR THE
09/10/09 10:47:22 WATERWORKS PARK AND THE
09/10/09 10:47:24 WATERWORKS BUILDING SITE WOULD
09/10/09 10:47:26 BE ABOUT A SIX ACRE SITE WE
09/10/09 10:47:28 WOULD DESIGNATE AS A BROWN
09/10/09 10:47:31 FIELD, AND VERY
09/10/09 10:47:34 RECENTLY, THIS
09/10/09 10:47:37 BOARD APPROVED
09/10/09 10:47:42 THE EXPENDITURE
09/10/09 10:47:42 OF FUNDS.
09/10/09 10:47:43 OUR FACILITY MAINTENANCE
09/10/09 10:47:45 RECEIVED A PROJECT FOR THAT,
09/10/09 10:47:47 AND SO THAT SHOULD BE UNDERWAY
09/10/09 10:47:47 IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
09/10/09 10:47:50 ALSO WE CONTINUE TO WORK ON A
09/10/09 10:47:53 WEEKLY BASIS WITH THE HEIGHTS
09/10/09 10:47:54 DEVELOPMENT TEAM ON SECURING
09/10/09 10:47:55 PRIVATE SECTOR INITIATIVES THAT
09/10/09 10:47:57 THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR
09/10/09 10:47:57 THE HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD.
09/10/09 10:47:58 SO SOME VERY EXCITING THINGS
09/10/09 10:48:01 GOING ON
09/10/09 10:48:02 THERE, BUT NOT RELATED
09/10/09 10:48:05 TO THE BUDGET.
09/10/09 10:48:08 ALSO AGAIN, THE BREAK OUT
09/10/09 10:48:09 OF
09/10/09 10:48:11 THE BUDGET HERE, THE 173.
09/10/09 10:48:14 THE 81 THAT YOU SEE
09/10/09 10:48:17 ARE
09/10/09 10:48:17 DOLLARS
09/10/09 10:48:19 THAT WOULD BE TRANSPORTED TO
09/10/09 10:48:19 SUPPORT.
09/10/09 10:48:20 HOPE THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO MOVE
09/10/09 10:48:21 FORWARD ON THAT, BUT CERTAINLY
09/10/09 10:48:23 DO NOT HAVE A PROPOSITION ON
09/10/09 10:48:26 THAT, AND THE --PROMISE ON
09/10/09 10:48:27 THAT, AND THE REMAINING AMOUNT
09/10/09 10:48:28 IN ADMINISTRATION.
09/10/09 10:48:30 DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR
09/10/09 10:48:31 ME ON THE HEIGHTS?
09/10/09 10:48:33 >> THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:48:34 I KNOW THAT THE BECK BUILDINGS
09/10/09 10:48:37 ALMOST OUT OF THE
09/10/09 10:48:38 GROUND IN
09/10/09 10:48:40 CHAMBER THEY SAID THEY WOULD
09/10/09 10:48:43 PROBABLY BE MOVING IN THERE, I
09/10/09 10:48:44 ASSUME THAT WOULD GENERATE SOME
09/10/09 10:48:47 ADDITIONAL MONEY, BUT IT'S NOT
09/10/09 10:48:47 REFLECTED HERE.
09/10/09 10:48:50 >> IT'S FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE
09/10/09 10:48:53 HEIGHTS AND CENTRAL
09/10/09 10:48:54 PARK, WE
09/10/09 10:48:57 DID NOT ANTICIPATE OR ADD IN A
09/10/09 10:48:57 VALUE.
09/10/09 10:48:59 >> I WAS GOING TO SAY, I'M NOT
09/10/09 10:49:01 WILDLY SPECULATIVE, BUT THE
09/10/09 10:49:02 BUILDING IS OUT OF THE GROUND.
09/10/09 10:49:05 ANYWAY, SO I THINK YOU SHOULD
09/10/09 10:49:06 THINK ABOUT THAT.
09/10/09 10:49:09 >> ABSOLUTELY, WE
09/10/09 10:49:10 CAN CERTAINLY
09/10/09 10:49:10 DO THAT.
09/10/09 10:49:11 >> SECONDLY.
09/10/09 10:49:14 PURSUANT TO THE
09/10/09 10:49:14 PREVIOUS
09/10/09 10:49:15 QUESTION ABOUT MR. DINGFELDER
09/10/09 10:49:16 ABOUT THE MONEY WE'RE GOING TO
09/10/09 10:49:18 HAVE TO SPEND ON LIGHTS, NOT
09/10/09 10:49:21 THE TO SOUND BIAS, BUT WE
09/10/09 10:49:21 ARE
09/10/09 10:49:24 HAND STRUNG VERY MUCH IN WHAT
09/10/09 10:49:26 WE CAN DO WITH DECORATIVE
09/10/09 10:49:26 LIGHTING.
09/10/09 10:49:29 THEY HAVE A LIMITED PALATE IN
09/10/09 10:49:30 THE LIGHTS THEY ALLOW.
09/10/09 10:49:32 BUT WHAT THEY'RE DOING IN THIS
09/10/09 10:49:34 NEIGHBORHOOD IS THE DEVELOPER
09/10/09 10:49:37 IS SAYING WE'RE GOING TO SOLAR
09/10/09 10:49:38 POWER OUR LIGHTS AND WE'RE
09/10/09 10:49:41 GOING TO HAVE
09/10/09 10:49:47 MORE
09/10/09 10:49:48 BEAUTIFUL
09/10/09 10:49:48 ONES, BECAUSE THEY'RE
09/10/09 10:49:50 INDEPENDENT OF TAMPA, I THINK
09/10/09 10:49:53 IN THE FUTURE WE CAN LOOK AT
09/10/09 10:49:55 THAT FOR OTHER AREAS, LONG TERM
09/10/09 10:49:56 INVESTMENT, IT COSTS MORE
09/10/09 10:49:58 CAPITAL TO BUILD THEM AND PUT
09/10/09 10:50:01 THEM IN, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE AN
09/10/09 10:50:02 ONGOING ELECTRIC BILL FOREVER
09/10/09 10:50:02 AND A DAY.
09/10/09 10:50:05 >> I WOULD BE GLAD TO
09/10/09 10:50:06 MAKE THAT
09/10/09 10:50:06 ARRANGEMENT.
09/10/09 10:50:07 >> Linda Saul-Sena: AND WHAT IS
09/10/09 10:50:10 THE TIMEFRAME
09/10/09 10:50:13 ON
09/10/09 10:50:16 THE
09/10/09 10:50:17 ON THE
09/10/09 10:50:18 COMPLETION?
09/10/09 10:50:21 >> THEY ARE ON TRACK FOR
09/10/09 10:50:22 OCCUPANCY STARTING IN JANUARY
09/10/09 10:50:22 OF NEXT YEAR.
09/10/09 10:50:25 >> Linda Saul-Sena: THAT TO ME
09/10/09 10:50:26 IS REALLY EXCITING.
09/10/09 10:50:29 LOOKING AT TRANSFOR MAKE OF AN
09/10/09 10:50:30 AREA, AND BECOMING MORE
09/10/09 10:50:32 SUSTAINABLE, THAT'S THE KIND OF
09/10/09 10:50:34 THINKING WE NEED TO ENCOURAGE.
09/10/09 10:50:34 THANKS.
09/10/09 10:50:37 >> WE WILL CONTINUE TO
09/10/09 10:50:40 DO
09/10/09 10:50:41 SO.
09/10/09 10:50:42 ANYTHING ELSE?
09/10/09 10:50:43 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:50:46 I BELIEVE MS. FENTON WILL NOW
09/10/09 10:50:47 COME UP.
09/10/09 10:50:49 >> PASS THE BATON.
09/10/09 10:50:52 >> THE BATON
09/10/09 10:50:55 HAS
09/10/09 10:50:58 BEEN
09/10/09 10:50:59 PASSED.
09/10/09 10:50:59 >> THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:51:02 PARK CRA
09/10/09 10:51:05 MANAGER.
09/10/09 10:51:08 OUR POWER POINT WILL BE
09/10/09 10:51:09 COMING
09/10/09 10:51:09 UP.
09/10/09 10:51:12 GOT THE A LITTLE AHEAD
09/10/09 10:51:18 OF
09/10/09 10:51:21 OURSELVES.
09/10/09 10:51:23 THE DREW PARK CRA NEIGHBORHOOD.
09/10/09 10:51:26 ANOTHER SLIDE THAT LOOKS VERY
09/10/09 10:51:27 FAMILIAR.
09/10/09 10:51:27 SAME OLD STORY.
09/10/09 10:51:30 WE'VE ENJOYED ROBUST GROWTH IN
09/10/09 10:51:33 OUR DREW PARK CRA TIF FOR THE
09/10/09 10:51:36 FIRST FIVE YEARS AND NOW A
09/10/09 10:51:37 SIGNIFICANT DECREASE OF A
09/10/09 10:51:40 LITTLE OVER 25% AND A CONTINUED
09/10/09 10:51:43 FLAT REVENUE FOR THE NEXT FIVE
09/10/09 10:51:43 YEARS.
09/10/09 10:51:46 DESPITE THOSE DIFFICULT
09/10/09 10:51:48 BUDGET
09/10/09 10:51:49 NUMBERS WE ARE CONTINUING TO
09/10/09 10:51:51 IMPLEMENT OUR STRATEGIC ACTION
09/10/09 10:51:51 PLAN.
09/10/09 10:51:52 ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS THAT
09/10/09 10:51:54 HAS HAPPENED IN DREW PARK
09/10/09 10:51:56 RECENTLY WAS THE OPENING OF THE
09/10/09 10:51:57 AIR CARGO ROAD.
09/10/09 10:51:59 IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN DOWN IT, I
09/10/09 10:52:01 ENCOURAGE YOU TO PLEASE MAKE
09/10/09 10:52:02 THAT DRIVE.
09/10/09 10:52:05 IT IS A BEAUTIFUL ROAD.
09/10/09 10:52:08 THE AVIATION AUTHORITY JUST DID
09/10/09 10:52:10 A SPECTACULAR JOB, IT WILL
09/10/09 10:52:11 CERTAINLY ENHANCE, NOT ONLY THE
09/10/09 10:52:12 AIRPORT OPERATIONS, BUT THOSE
09/10/09 10:52:13 THINGS WE'RE TRYING TO DO IN
09/10/09 10:52:16 THE DREW PARK
09/10/09 10:52:17 CRA.
09/10/09 10:52:20 ONE OF THE THINGS WE
09/10/09 10:52:21 ARE
09/10/09 10:52:23 FOCUSING ON IS ENHANCING THE
09/10/09 10:52:24 CONNECTIVITY.
09/10/09 10:52:25 WE ARE PAVING SOME OF THE MAJOR
09/10/09 10:52:27 STREETS THAT WILL CONNECT WITH
09/10/09 10:52:29 AIR CARGO ROAD, AND WILL
09/10/09 10:52:30 CONTINUE TO DO THE STREET
09/10/09 10:52:32 PAVING AS OUR FUNDS ALLOW.
09/10/09 10:52:33 WE CONTINUE TO WORK WITH OUR
09/10/09 10:52:35 STORM WIRE DEPARTMENT ON THE
09/10/09 10:52:37 IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE STREET
09/10/09 10:52:39 SAFE AND THE POTENTIAL
09/10/09 10:52:41 STORMWATER PROJECT THAT WILL
09/10/09 10:52:42 ASSIST WITH THE FLOODING
09/10/09 10:52:45 PROBLEMS WE EXPERIENCED IN DUE
09/10/09 10:52:47 PARK, WE ARE LOOKING AT HAVING
09/10/09 10:52:48 SOME FINAL PROJECT SCOPE THINGS
09/10/09 10:52:50 THAT ARE DONE IN JANUARY OF
09/10/09 10:52:52 THIS YEAR, AND SHOULD KNOW,
09/10/09 10:52:53 HAVE A PRETTY GOOD DIRECTION OF
09/10/09 10:52:55 WHERE WE'RE GOING WITH THAT
09/10/09 10:52:56 PROJECT.
09/10/09 10:52:58 I HAD PREVIOUSLY REPORTED TO
09/10/09 10:53:00 YOU THAT WE RECEIVED A BROWN
09/10/09 10:53:03 FIELD GRANT THAT WAS A CITY
09/10/09 10:53:05 WIDE GRANT BY TARGETED TO DREW
09/10/09 10:53:07 PARK AND EAST TAMPA, THE
09/10/09 10:53:09 HEIGHTS, AND CENTRAL PARK CRA,
09/10/09 10:53:10 AND WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO
09/10/09 10:53:11 IMPLEMENTING THAT NOW.
09/10/09 10:53:13 IT IS PART OF THE STIMULUS
09/10/09 10:53:15 FUNDING, SO THERE ARE STIMULUS
09/10/09 10:53:18 DOLLARS AT WORK IN THE CRA'S,
09/10/09 10:53:20 WE SHOULD HAVE OUR CONSULTANT
09/10/09 10:53:22 ONBOARD SHORTLY, AND WILL
09/10/09 10:53:24 ACTUALLY BEGIN CONDUCTING THE
09/10/09 10:53:27 ASSESSMENTS AND THE
09/10/09 10:53:28 OTHER GRAND
09/10/09 10:53:28 ACTIVITIES.
09/10/09 10:53:30 YOU PREVIOUSLY APPROVED LAND
09/10/09 10:53:33 ACQUISITIONS IN DREW PARK
09/10/09 10:53:33 AND
09/10/09 10:53:34 OUR GOAL IS TO IMPLEMENT A
09/10/09 10:53:36 QUALITY PROJECT IN THE FUTURE
09/10/09 10:53:39 AND ARE LOOKING TO EXPLORE
09/10/09 10:53:40 OTHER LAND ACQUISITION
09/10/09 10:53:40 POSSIBILITIES.
09/10/09 10:53:41 AS FOR OUR CURRENT YEAR BUDGET,
09/10/09 10:53:44 AGAIN, AS YOU CAN SEE,
09/10/09 10:53:46 MOST OF
09/10/09 10:53:48 THE DOLLARS ARE ALLOCATED
09/10/09 10:53:48 TOWARD INFRASTRUCTURE TYPE
09/10/09 10:53:49 PROJECTS, BOTH THE STREET
09/10/09 10:53:52 PAVING AND THE STORMWATER
09/10/09 10:53:55 PROJECT, WE HAVE ALSO ALKATED
09/10/09 10:53:55 MONEY TOWARD LAND ACQUISITION,
09/10/09 10:53:57 AND HAVE FUNDS IN PREVIOUS
09/10/09 10:53:58 YEARS WE WILL COUPLE WITH THESE
09/10/09 10:54:01 FUNDS SO WE CAN DO SOME
09/10/09 10:54:02 SIGNIFICANT ACQUISITIONS.
09/10/09 10:54:05 ALSO HAVE AN ALLEGATION FOR
09/10/09 10:54:07 AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND ECONOMIC
09/10/09 10:54:08 DEVELOPMENT PROJECT COSTS.
09/10/09 10:54:12 AND INCENTIVES SHOULD WE
09/10/09 10:54:13 NEED
09/10/09 10:54:13 THAT.
09/10/09 10:54:16 THERE IS AN ALLOCATION FOR
09/10/09 10:54:17 OUR
09/10/09 10:54:18 FACADE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM,
09/10/09 10:54:21 WE'RE ANXIOUS TO KICK THAT OFF
09/10/09 10:54:22 ALONG WITH OUR SISTER AND
09/10/09 10:54:25 FELLOW CRA'S AND MONEY IN
09/10/09 10:54:27 PREVIOUS BUDGET YEARS ALLOCATED
09/10/09 10:54:30 FOR THAT, SO IT'S A
09/10/09 10:54:32 TOTAL OF
09/10/09 10:54:33 300,000 WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD
09/10/09 10:54:35 TO HAVING FOR THAT PROGRAM.
09/10/09 10:54:37 ONE OTHER THAT YOU DON'T SEE,
09/10/09 10:54:39 ADULT YOUTH ENFORCEMENT, THAT
09/10/09 10:54:42 IS ONLY BECAUSE WE HAVE MONEY
09/10/09 10:54:44 IN PRIOR FISCAL YEARS THAT IS
09/10/09 10:54:45 SUFFICIENT TO CARRY US THROUGH
09/10/09 10:54:48 THE OPERATIONS FOR THIS
09/10/09 10:54:50 FISCAL
09/10/09 10:54:52 YEAR, WE CERTAINLY ARE ACTIVITY
09/10/09 10:54:53 PURSUING, ADULT YOUTH
09/10/09 10:54:54 ENFORCEMENT, SO DON'T THINK
09/10/09 10:54:55 BECAUSE YOU DON'T SEE IT IN
09/10/09 10:54:58 THIS YEAR'S BUDGET THAT IT IS
09/10/09 10:54:59 NOT HAPPENING, WE JUST RECEIVED
09/10/09 10:55:00 WORD FROM THE FLORIDA
09/10/09 10:55:02 DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION THAT
09/10/09 10:55:03 THE PROGRAM RECEIVED A
09/10/09 10:55:04 STATEWIDE AWARD FOR OUR EFFORTS
09/10/09 10:55:07 SO WE ARE VERY MUCH LOOKING
09/10/09 10:55:09 FORWARD TO ACCEPTING THAT
09/10/09 10:55:09 AWARD.
09/10/09 10:55:12 AND THAT CONCLUDES
09/10/09 10:55:15 MY
09/10/09 10:55:15 PRESENTATION.
09/10/09 10:55:16 IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
09/10/09 10:55:17 >> Linda Saul-Sena: THANK YOU,
09/10/09 10:55:19 I WANTED TO ASK THE SAME
09/10/09 10:55:21 REQUEST OF YOU THAT YOU LET US
09/10/09 10:55:22 NOW AS PART OF YOUR MONTHLY
09/10/09 10:55:25 REPORT, SO
09/10/09 10:55:26 WE CAN BE PROUD OF
09/10/09 10:55:26 THAT.
09/10/09 10:55:26 >> ABSOLUTELY.
09/10/09 10:55:27 >> Linda Saul-Sena: , SECONDLY,
09/10/09 10:55:29 I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS
09/10/09 10:55:31 THAT'S BEEN CONFUSING FOR USES
09/10/09 10:55:33 AS A BOARD, IS THE FACT THAT
09/10/09 10:55:36 THIS IS OUR FISCAL YEAR 10
09/10/09 10:55:38 BUDGET, BUT WE DO HAVE THESE
09/10/09 10:55:40 HOLD OVER FUNDS WE'RE ABLE TO
09/10/09 10:55:41 USE.
09/10/09 10:55:42 I CAN'T SUGGEST A GOOD FORMAT,
09/10/09 10:55:45 BUT I THINK THERE SHOULD BE
09/10/09 10:55:48 SOME WAY OF INDICATING THAT AS
09/10/09 10:55:51 WE LOOK TO THIS FISCAL YEAR SO
09/10/09 10:55:52 YEAR AWARE OF WHICH PROGRAMS
09/10/09 10:55:53 ARE CARRIED ON.
09/10/09 10:55:56 IF YOU JUST LOOK AT THIS, IT
09/10/09 10:55:59 DOESN'T TELL THE FULL
09/10/09 10:55:59 STORY OF
09/10/09 10:56:01 THE BREATH OF YOUR ACTIVITY.
09/10/09 10:56:04 SOME WAY, IF YOU COULD LET US
09/10/09 10:56:07 KNOW THAT IS
09/10/09 10:56:08 PART OF THE FISCAL
09/10/09 10:56:11 YEAR 10 ACTIVITY, SO SOMEONE
09/10/09 10:56:12 LOOKING AT THIS WILL UNDERSTAND
09/10/09 10:56:13 THE ENTIRETY OF THE PROGRAM.
09/10/09 10:56:16 >> WE ACTUALLY DO THAT
09/10/09 10:56:18 FOR OUR
09/10/09 10:56:18 ADVISORY COMMITTEE.
09/10/09 10:56:21 WE CAN
09/10/09 10:56:22 DEVELOP SOMETHING LIKE
09/10/09 10:56:24 THAT FOR THE BOARD.
09/10/09 10:56:24 >> Linda Saul-Sena: THANK YOU.
09/10/09 10:56:27 >> YOU'RE WELCOME.
09/10/09 10:56:30 >> LOTS
09/10/09 10:56:32 OF GOOD QUESTIONS AND
09/10/09 10:56:34 ENGAGEMENT THANK YOU FOR YOUR
09/10/09 10:56:36 TIME AND ATTENTION TO THE
09/10/09 10:56:36 ANNUAL BUDGET.
09/10/09 10:56:37 ANY OTHER QUESTIONS AT THIS
09/10/09 10:56:39 POINT BEFORE WE BRING THAT TO
09/10/09 10:56:40 CLOSURE?
09/10/09 10:56:42 I'LL JUST SAY AS YOU CAN SEE

09/10/09 10:58:43 >> Linda Saul-Sena: I WAS JUST
09/10/09 10:58:46 GOING TO SAY THAT IT WOULD SEEM
09/10/09 10:58:49 LIKE BECAUSE THE CRA
09/10/09 10:58:49 BOARD
09/10/09 10:58:52 OVERSEAS THIS, THAT THERE WOULD
09/10/09 10:58:55 BE THE POTENTIAL OF ROLE FOR
09/10/09 10:58:57 THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OR
09/10/09 10:58:59 SOME OF THE CRA MEMBERS TO BE
09/10/09 10:59:01 PART OF THIS PRODUCTION.
09/10/09 10:59:03 THE WAY THAT CITY CABLE
09/10/09 10:59:05 OPERATES HAS ALWAYS BEEN VERY
09/10/09 10:59:08 DIRECTED BY THE ADMINISTRATION
09/10/09 10:59:11 BUT IN THAT THIS
09/10/09 10:59:11 PARTICULAR
09/10/09 10:59:12 PIECE IS CRA BASED IT WOULD
09/10/09 10:59:15 SEEM AS IF THERE WOULD BE A
09/10/09 10:59:15 ROLE.
09/10/09 10:59:18 SO PERHAPS THAT
09/10/09 10:59:21 CONVERSATION

09/10/09 10:59:27 BETWEEN MAYBE

09/10/09 10:59:49 LOOK.
09/10/09 10:59:49 >> Gwen Miller: ALWAYS AN
09/10/09 10:59:50 OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND THAT.
09/10/09 10:59:53 ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID,
09/10/09 10:59:54 AND I
09/10/09 10:59:55 HATE TO CONFIRM THAT --EACH OF
09/10/09 10:59:56 THE COMMISSION HAD AN
09/10/09 10:59:59 OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT
09/10/09 11:00:02 WORKING AT DISTRICT OR,

09/10/09 11:06:50 THIS DOCUMENT REALLY REPRESENTS
09/10/09 11:06:52 THE COMMUNITY.

09/10/09 11:07:00 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 11:07:03 OUR RESEARCH FOCUSED ON THREE
09/10/09 11:07:05 BASIC PRINCIPALS.
09/10/09 11:07:07 INFRASTRUCTURE, LAND USE, AND
09/10/09 11:07:07 ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT.
09/10/09 11:07:10 PRIMARILY
09/10/09 11:07:13 ON THE
09/10/09 11:07:14 INFRASTRUCTURE WITH STORMWATER,
09/10/09 11:07:16 WATER AND SEWER.
09/10/09 11:07:17 SIGNS AND GATEWAYS.
09/10/09 11:07:19 ONE OF THE OBJECTIVES AS WELL
09/10/09 11:07:21 AN INFRASTRUCTURE ANALYSIS TO
09/10/09 11:07:25 REDUCE AND ELIMINATE
09/10/09 11:07:26 THE BLIGHT

09/10/09 11:07:35 ELEMENTS YOU

09/10/09 11:07:37 THE INFRASTRUCTURE ANALYSIS
09/10/09 11:07:38 ALSO FOCUSED ON THE
09/10/09 11:07:39 NEIGHBORHOOD AMENITIES AND
09/10/09 11:07:39 SERVICES.
09/10/09 11:07:42 IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE IN THE
09/10/09 11:07:44 LONG TERM ECONOMIC RECOVERY OF
09/10/09 11:07:47 EAST TAMPA, THESE ARE ALL KIND
09/10/09 11:07:49 OF THE WISH LIST, AND IF
09/10/09 11:07:50 FUNDING BECAME AVAILABLE, THESE
09/10/09 11:07:51 PROGRAMS WOULD BE IMPLEMENTED.
09/10/09 11:07:54 WE'VE TRIED TO GIVE A WIDE
09/10/09 11:07:57 RANGE OF CHOICES THERE.
09/10/09 11:07:58 THE SECOND PHASE IN ANALYSIS
09/10/09 11:08:01 FOCUSED ON THE LAND USE AND
09/10/09 11:08:04 ZONING THROUGH THE EXISTING
09/10/09 11:08:07 ZONING LOOKING AT POTENTIAL
09/10/09 11:08:08 MIXED USE ZONING.
09/10/09 11:08:09 THE HEAVY COMMERCIAL ZONING,
09/10/09 11:08:12 WITH THE CORRIDORS THAT WE
09/10/09 11:08:14 HAVE
09/10/09 11:08:16 SURROUNDING US THAT OFFER GREAT
09/10/09 11:08:17 ACCESSIBILITY.
09/10/09 11:08:18 OVERLAY DISTRICT GUIDELINES AS
09/10/09 11:08:20 WELL AS THE CODES THAT CREATE
09/10/09 11:08:23 THE ENVIRONMENT WE ALL
09/10/09 11:08:25 DESIRE
09/10/09 11:08:25 TO SEE.
09/10/09 11:08:28 WE ENGAGE LAMBERT ADVISORY FOR
09/10/09 11:08:31 AND THEIR DEMAND FOCUSED ON
09/10/09 11:08:34 THERE IS A DEMAND ON FOR
09/10/09 11:08:34 SALE
09/10/09 11:08:35 RESIDENTIAL.
09/10/09 11:08:36 RETAIL RENTAL RESIDENTIAL AS
09/10/09 11:08:38 WELL AS RETAIL OFFICE SPACE
09/10/09 11:08:39 LIKELY IN A MIXED USE SCENARIO,
09/10/09 11:08:42 AND INDUSTRIAL SPACE, BUT IT IS
09/10/09 11:08:45 IMPORTANT
09/10/09 11:08:46 TO NOTE THAT THEIR
09/10/09 11:08:48 MARKET ANALYSIS IS, HAS BEEN
09/10/09 11:08:51 AFFECTED BY THE RECENT ECONOMIC
09/10/09 11:08:54 CONDITIONS AND THE DEMAND
09/10/09 11:08:56 HAS
09/10/09 11:08:57 GONE DOWN SINCE THE INITIAL
09/10/09 11:09:00 ANALYSIS IN '07, AND THERE WAS
09/10/09 11:09:03 AN UPDATE TO THAT ANALYSIS IN
09/10/09 11:09:03 '08.
09/10/09 11:09:04 THIS MAP REPRESENTS ALL KIND OF
09/10/09 11:09:06 ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES AS WELL
09/10/09 11:09:08 AS CONNECTING THE COMMUNITY TO
09/10/09 11:09:09 EMPLOYMENT CENTERS, CULTURAL
09/10/09 11:09:10 RESOURCES, AND THE HISTORICAL
09/10/09 11:09:13 RESOURCES WE HAVE
09/10/09 11:09:14 IN TAMPA, AND
09/10/09 11:09:15 CREATING A MORE MULTIMODAL
09/10/09 11:09:16 FACILITY THAT WILL HOPEFULLY
09/10/09 11:09:18 TAKE SOME OF THE PRESSURE OFF
09/10/09 11:09:21 THE LOCAL
09/10/09 11:09:23 ROADS, AND IMPROVE
09/10/09 11:09:25 THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS.
09/10/09 11:09:28 WE LOOKED AT THE GATEWAYS AND
09/10/09 11:09:31 THE PRIVATE SECTOR INTEREST IN
09/10/09 11:09:34 INVESTMENT IN
09/10/09 11:09:36 THE GATEWAY
09/10/09 11:09:36 AREAS.
09/10/09 11:09:39 THESE ARE HIGHLY VISIBLE, VERY
09/10/09 11:09:41 WELL ACCESSIBLE AREAS THAT
09/10/09 11:09:44 INVESTORS HAVE SAID ARE
09/10/09 11:09:44 DESIRABLE.
09/10/09 11:09:46 B IS THE NORTHERN GATEWAY.
09/10/09 11:09:49 C IS THE
09/10/09 11:09:50 SOUTHERN GATEWAY.
09/10/09 11:09:52 D, THE CENTRAL HILLSBOROUGH
09/10/09 11:09:52 AVENUE GATEWAY.
09/10/09 11:09:54 AGAIN, THE MARKET ANALYSIS
09/10/09 11:09:57 FOCUSED ON BY LAMBERT LOOKED
09/10/09 11:09:57 AT
09/10/09 11:09:58 THE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
09/10/09 11:09:59 STRATEGIES AND ESSENTIAL
09/10/09 11:10:01 PROGRAMS THAT MIGHT BE
09/10/09 11:10:04 AVAILABLE OF WHICH COULD
09/10/09 11:10:06 INCLUDE COMMERCIAL FACILITY,
09/10/09 11:10:08 OUR COMMERCIAL FACADE GRANT
09/10/09 11:10:12 PROGRAMS, THE TIF FUNDING
09/10/09 11:10:13 ASSISTANCE THROUGH GAP

09/10/09 11:10:29 FIELD
09/10/09 11:10:29 ASSEMBLAGE.
09/10/09 11:10:31 THE MARKET OPPORTUNITIES WERE
09/10/09 11:10:33 ALSO SUPPLEMENTED THROUGH
09/10/09 11:10:34 LAMBERT'S STUDY THROUGH SOCIAL
09/10/09 11:10:35 COMPACT AND THAT INFORMATION
09/10/09 11:10:38 HAS BEEN PRESENTED TO THIS
09/10/09 11:10:38 BOARD.
09/10/09 11:10:41 BUT IT REALLY,
09/10/09 11:10:44 IT DID
09/10/09 11:10:45 REVEAL
09/10/09 11:10:48 SOME KEY STATISTICS THAT
09/10/09 11:10:49 THE,
09/10/09 11:10:50 THE COMMON ANALYSIS WOULD
09/10/09 11:10:51 INCLUDE FROM CENSUS DATA.
09/10/09 11:10:54 THE POPULATION IS ACTUALLY
09/10/09 11:10:55 35,000.
09/10/09 11:10:58 WHICH
09/10/09 11:11:01 IS 5,000 MORE THAN
09/10/09 11:11:04 ESTIMATES.
09/10/09 11:11:05 TOTAL NEIGHBORHOOD, $51 MILLION
09/10/09 11:11:08 MORE THAN ESTIMATES, AND 74.4%
09/10/09 11:11:11 OF RESIDENTS
09/10/09 11:11:14 HAVE UNDERGONE
09/10/09 11:11:15 SOME REHABILITATION.
09/10/09 11:11:16 WHICH SHOWS SELF-INVESTMENT,
09/10/09 11:11:18 AND CREATES SOME MARKET
09/10/09 11:11:18 STABILITY.
09/10/09 11:11:20 YOU'VE SEEN THE TIF PROJECTIONS
09/10/09 11:11:21 FOR THE OTHER CRA'S.
09/10/09 11:11:24 OURS IS NOT MUCH DIFFERENT.
09/10/09 11:11:27 WE SEE A DRASTIC REDUCTION

09/10/09 11:16:55 THROUGH THE BOARD AND COUNTY
09/10/09 11:16:56 COMMISSION.
09/10/09 11:16:58 I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE
09/10/09 11:17:01 TAKEN CREDIT
09/10/09 11:17:03 FOR THAT, THAT'S
09/10/09 11:17:03 FINE.
09/10/09 11:17:04 BUT ORIGINALLY --
09/10/09 11:17:05 >> [ INAUDIBLE ]
09/10/09 11:17:08 >> Gwen Miller: YOU
09/10/09 11:17:11 DID
09/10/09 11:17:14 VOTE ON

09/10/09 11:17:19 THE BOARD AT THE TIME, AND
09/10/09 11:17:19 SAID
09/10/09 11:17:22 IF ANYBODY NEEDS A CRA, IT'S
09/10/09 11:17:22 EAST TAMPA.
09/10/09 11:17:24 THAT'S HOW IT GOT STARTED, I
09/10/09 11:17:26 DREW THE ORIGINAL BOUNDARIES,
09/10/09 11:17:28 OF COURSE THE CURRENT MAYOR
09/10/09 11:17:31 EXTENDED FROM 50th STREET.
09/10/09 11:17:32 THEY DID DO THAT.
09/10/09 11:17:35 INITIALLY, THIS
09/10/09 11:17:38 WAS
09/10/09 11:17:39 DONE WITHIN
09/10/09 11:17:40 THE NEGOTIATION BETWEEN MAYOR
09/10/09 11:17:43 MYSELF, AND DON KRAMER, IT'S
09/10/09 11:17:46 GOOD TO SEE THIS MOVING
09/10/09 11:17:46 FORWARD.
09/10/09 11:17:48 IT'S AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY
09/10/09 11:17:49 FOR EAST TAMPA, AND FOR THE
09/10/09 11:17:50 CURRENT ADMINISTRATION WHO HAS
09/10/09 11:17:53 BEEN FOLLOWING UP ON IT.
09/10/09 11:17:56 AND MAKING SURE IT GET DONE, SO
09/10/09 11:17:57 THAT'S ENOUGH CREDIT FOR
09/10/09 11:17:58 EVERYBODY GO AROUND, IN TERMS
09/10/09 11:18:01 OF EAST TAMPA, I JUST WANT TO
09/10/09 11:18:02 MAKE SURE IF I UNDERSTAND THE
09/10/09 11:18:05 HISTORY OF HOW IT GOT STARTED
09/10/09 11:18:07 THIS WHOLE CRA IN EAST TAMPA,
09/10/09 11:18:07 OKAY?
09/10/09 11:18:07 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 11:18:09 >> THANK YOU, THANK YOU GOOD
09/10/09 11:18:09 REPORT.
09/10/09 11:18:12 ONE WORD THAT I DIDN'T HEAR,
09/10/09 11:18:15 TWO WORDS I DIDN'T HEAR WERE
09/10/09 11:18:18 STABILIZATION, OR
09/10/09 11:18:19 SUSTAINABILITY RATHER AND
09/10/09 11:18:20 WEATHERIZATION.
09/10/09 11:18:22 IN ST. PETERSBURG, THEIR AREA
09/10/09 11:18:24 THAT'S COMPARABLE TO EAST TAMPA
09/10/09 11:18:26 THEY HAVE AN URBAN LEAGUE, BUT
09/10/09 11:18:29 WE HAVE CDC OF TAMPA, AND THEIR
09/10/09 11:18:32 UTILITY COMPANY TO MAKE
09/10/09 11:18:34 OUTRIGHT GRANTS TO CITIZENS
09/10/09 11:18:36 AVAILABLE TO WEATHERIZE THEIR
09/10/09 11:18:37 HOMES WHICH CREATES JOBS, IT
09/10/09 11:18:39 SAVES CITIZENS MONEY IN THE
09/10/09 11:18:42 LONG RUN, AND IT SPURS ECONOMIC
09/10/09 11:18:43 DEVELOPMENT IN THAT AREA.
09/10/09 11:18:44 I DIDN'T HEAR YOU SAY THAT, BUT
09/10/09 11:18:46 I SURE HOPE YOU'RE GOING TO
09/10/09 11:18:48 INCLUDE IT, THAT'S A GREAT
09/10/09 11:18:49 OPPORTUNITY.
09/10/09 11:18:51 THERE IS FEDERAL STIMULUS MONEY
09/10/09 11:18:51 FOR HAVE NOW.
09/10/09 11:18:54 WE'VE GONE AFTER IT IN SOME
09/10/09 11:18:57 WAYS, BUT NOT FOR JUST GENERAL
09/10/09 11:18:58 PROPERTY OWNERS, WE'RE ONLY
09/10/09 11:19:01 LOOKING AT IT IN TERMS OF OUR
09/10/09 11:19:01 MONEY FOR FORECLOSURES.
09/10/09 11:19:03 BUT THIS IS FOR REGULAR FOLK
09/10/09 11:19:04 WHO IS HAVE THEIR HOMES.
09/10/09 11:19:06 I THINK IT'S A MODEL THAT WE
09/10/09 11:19:08 DON'T HAVE TO INVENT, THEY'RE
09/10/09 11:19:09 DOING IT IN ST. PETERSBURG,
09/10/09 11:19:10 WE'RE CAN DO IT HERE, WE CAN
09/10/09 11:19:12 GET SOME OF THIS MONEY, I HOPE
09/10/09 11:19:14 YOU, I KNOW YOU STARTED THIS
09/10/09 11:19:15 CONVERSATION A YEAR AND A HALF
09/10/09 11:19:18 AGO BEFORE PERHAPS THIS WAS SO
09/10/09 11:19:19 MUCH AVAILABLE IN PART OF THE
09/10/09 11:19:21 THINKING, BUT IT'S NOW, AND
09/10/09 11:19:22 WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD.
09/10/09 11:19:25 I HOPE THAT YOU AND
09/10/09 11:19:26 THE
09/10/09 11:19:27 NEIGHBORHOOD THINK ABOUT
09/10/09 11:19:27 WEATHERIZATION.
09/10/09 11:19:28 TONY WATSON IS REALLY TUNED
09/10/09 11:19:28 INTO IT.
09/10/09 11:19:30 SOMETHING WE NEED TO GO FOR IN
09/10/09 11:19:33 EAST TAMPA, AS WELL AS
09/10/09 11:19:35 LOOKING
09/10/09 11:19:36 FOR MANUFACTURING OPPORTUNITIES
09/10/09 11:19:38 FOR SOLAR PANELS.
09/10/09 11:19:39 THANKS.
09/10/09 11:19:41 >> CAN I HAVE ONE LAST?
09/10/09 11:19:44 LET ME JUST ADD ONE LAST THING.
09/10/09 11:19:45 MR.HUET, WILL THERE BE, I'M
09/10/09 11:19:47 SURE THE MAYOR IS GOING TO HAVE
09/10/09 11:19:50 A PITCH AND A STATEMENT
09/10/09 11:19:53 THIS IN
09/10/09 11:19:54 PARTICULAR FINAL DOCUMENT.
09/10/09 11:19:54 >> EXCUSE ME?
09/10/09 11:19:56 >> Gwen Miller: I'M ALSUING THE
09/10/09 11:19:58 MAYOR WILL HAVE A PICTURE IN
09/10/09 11:19:59 THE STATEMENT FROM THIS FINAL
09/10/09 11:20:01 DOCUMENT, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU
09/10/09 11:20:03 ALSO HAD THE CHAIRMAN OF CRA TO
09/10/09 11:20:05 THAT, AND A STATEMENT, AND A
09/10/09 11:20:07 PITCH ON THE FULL BOARD AS
09/10/09 11:20:07 WELL.
09/10/09 11:20:09 IN THE PAST I'VE SEEN NOTHING
09/10/09 11:20:11 RELATIVE TO CRA BOARD IN THESE
09/10/09 11:20:14 KIND OF DOCUMENTS, I THINK IT'S
09/10/09 11:20:16 APPROPRIATE BECAUSE ACTUALLY
09/10/09 11:20:18 WHILE WE DO HAVE A LEGAL
09/10/09 11:20:20 DOCUMENT THE FLORIDA STATUTE
09/10/09 11:20:23 GIVES THE AUTHORITY TO THE CRA
09/10/09 11:20:24 BOARD OKAY?
09/10/09 11:20:27 >>
09/10/09 11:20:29 MUCH THE WAY THE BUDGET
09/10/09 11:20:29 DOCUMENT HAS.
09/10/09 11:20:32 >> Linda Saul-Sena: WELL IT'S
09/10/09 11:20:35 DIFFERENT, BECAUSE THE
09/10/09 11:20:36 CRA
09/10/09 11:20:37 BUDGET IS DIFFERENT.
09/10/09 11:20:40 >> I SUGGEST WE WOULD HANDLE
09/10/09 11:20:40 IT
09/10/09 11:20:42 THE SAME AS THE BUDGET
09/10/09 11:20:42 DOCUMENT.
09/10/09 11:20:43 >> Gwen Miller: VERY GOOD, GLAD
09/10/09 11:20:44 TO SEE YOU MOVING FORWARD, AND
09/10/09 11:20:46 HOPEFULLY YOU CAN GET A LOT OF
09/10/09 11:20:48 IMPACT FROM THE COMMUNITY, IT
09/10/09 11:20:50 IS A HUGE, AND EXCELLENT
09/10/09 11:20:50 OPPORTUNITY.
09/10/09 11:20:52 NOT ONLY JUST FOR EAST TAMPA
09/10/09 11:20:54 THOUGH, IT'S FOR THE WHOLE
09/10/09 11:20:54 COMMUNITY.
09/10/09 11:20:56 WHAT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IS,
09/10/09 11:20:57 WHEN THE WHOLE COMMUNITY HAS
09/10/09 11:21:00 TO, HAS TO
09/10/09 11:21:01 GO AND DEVELOP AND
09/10/09 11:21:01 THRIVE.
09/10/09 11:21:03 [ INAUDIBLE ] ANY COMMUNITY IS
09/10/09 11:21:05 NOT THEN, IT'S A DRAG ON THE
09/10/09 11:21:07 WHOLE COMMUNITY AND NOT IN THE
09/10/09 11:21:09 BEST INTEREST FOR THE ENTIRE
09/10/09 11:21:09 CITY.
09/10/09 11:21:10 IT'S THE BEST INTEREST FOR
09/10/09 11:21:11 EVERY COMMUNITY AND EVERY
09/10/09 11:21:12 NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE CITY TO
09/10/09 11:21:15 GROW AND THRIVE AND TO DO
09/10/09 11:21:17 WELL
09/10/09 11:21:17 ECONOMICALLY.
09/10/09 11:21:18 AS WELL AS SOCIALLY.
09/10/09 11:21:18 >> GOOD POINT.
09/10/09 11:21:21 I JUST WANTED TO MAKE A POINT
09/10/09 11:21:23 THAT THE DRAFT YOU HAVE BEFORE
09/10/09 11:21:26 YOU, ABOUT 2/3 OF THAT IS THE
09/10/09 11:21:28 ACTUAL STRATEGIC ACTION PLAN,
09/10/09 11:21:30 AND THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY.
09/10/09 11:21:31 THE OTHER 2/3 IS APPENDCIES,
09/10/09 11:21:34 WHICH IS ALL THE BACK UP AND
09/10/09 11:21:37 ANALYSIS KEY TO PREPARING
09/10/09 11:21:38 THE
09/10/09 11:21:38 PLAN.
09/10/09 11:21:39 >> THANK YOU APPRECIATE THAT.
09/10/09 11:21:42 THANKS FOR THE
09/10/09 11:21:44 REPORT.
09/10/09 11:21:47 WE WILL NOW
09/10/09 11:21:53 GO TO
09/10/09 11:21:53 PUBLIC
09/10/09 11:21:53 COMMENTS.
09/10/09 11:21:56 >> Linda Saul-Sena: A PATIENT
09/10/09 11:21:57 PUBLIC.
09/10/09 11:21:58 >> HI MY NAME IS ALLEN SNELL.
09/10/09 11:22:00 IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT
09/10/09 11:22:03 I ACTUALLY CAME HERE TO TALK
09/10/09 11:22:03 ABOUT.
09/10/09 11:22:06 IN THE INVOCATION, YOU HAD A
09/10/09 11:22:09 LEADER TALK ABOUT PRAYING TO A
09/10/09 11:22:10 SPECIFIC RELIGIOUS FIGURE.
09/10/09 11:22:13 I THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE
09/10/09 11:22:14 FOR
09/10/09 11:22:14 CHURCH.
09/10/09 11:22:15 I DON'T THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE
09/10/09 11:22:17 FOR CITY HALL, WHERE YOU FOLKS
09/10/09 11:22:18 HAVE TO INCLUDE EVERY LAST
09/10/09 11:22:21 PERSON IN THE CITY, THAT'S JUST
09/10/09 11:22:23 A REMINDER TO REMIND YOUR
09/10/09 11:22:25 INVOCATION FOLKS TO BE
09/10/09 11:22:26 INCLUSIVE.
09/10/09 11:22:28 I'VE APPEARED BEFORE TO TALK
09/10/09 11:22:30 ABOUT IMPROVING THE BICYCLE
09/10/09 11:22:31 INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE CITY OF
09/10/09 11:22:33 TAMPA, IT'S LACKING BEHIND MOST
09/10/09 11:22:35 CITIES IN THE COUNTRY, HERE
09/10/09 11:22:37 SPECIFICALLY TO FOCUS ON ONE
09/10/09 11:22:38 ISSUE, I'M GLAD IT'S A
09/10/09 11:22:39 REDEVELOPMENT VENUE HERE.
09/10/09 11:22:41 THIS HAD AS TO DO WITH A
09/10/09 11:22:45 PROPOSAL --HAS TO DO WITH A
09/10/09 11:22:47 PROPOSAL THAT'S BEEN FLOATED.
09/10/09 11:22:49 ACTUALLY IN YOUR MASTER PLAN
09/10/09 11:22:52 FOR BIKE LANES TO
09/10/09 11:22:53 HAVE BIKE
09/10/09 11:22:54 LANES ON CASS AND TYLER.
09/10/09 11:22:57 THIS IS NOT A WISH LIST.
09/10/09 11:22:59 THIS IS IN YOUR BIKE LANE
09/10/09 11:22:59 MASTER PLAN.
09/10/09 11:23:01 WITH THE CITY RIPPING UP THE
09/10/09 11:23:02 STREETS AND PUTTING IN NEW
09/10/09 11:23:05 UTILITIES THIS WOULD BE AN
09/10/09 11:23:06 IDEAL OPPORTUNITY TO REPAVE AND
09/10/09 11:23:08 PUT THE BAKE LANES IN.
09/10/09 11:23:09 THIS IS A NO BRAINER.
09/10/09 11:23:10 MOST CITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY
09/10/09 11:23:11 DO THIS.
09/10/09 11:23:13 THEY DO IT AS PART OF THEIR
09/10/09 11:23:13 POLICY.
09/10/09 11:23:16 ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK
09/10/09 11:23:18 ACROSS THE BAY TO THE CITY OF
09/10/09 11:23:21 ST. PETERSBURG TO SEE A CITY
09/10/09 11:23:22 DOWNTOWN THAT'S THRIVING AND
09/10/09 11:23:24 VIBRANT, AND DOING WELL BECAUSE
09/10/09 11:23:25 YOU HAD POLITICAL LEADERSHIP
09/10/09 11:23:28 THERE THAT DECIDED TO MAKE THAT
09/10/09 11:23:30 CITY A BICYCLE FRIENDLY CITY.
09/10/09 11:23:33 I UNDERSTAND FROM ATTENDING,
09/10/09 11:23:36 AND ACTUALLY AN AD
09/10/09 11:23:38 HOC BICYCLE
09/10/09 11:23:39 COMMITTEE MEETING THAT I
09/10/09 11:23:41 ATTENDED JUST A FEW DAYS AGO,
09/10/09 11:23:43 WHERE I LEARNED CITY GOVERNMENT
09/10/09 11:23:46 IS NOT BEING RECEPTIVE TO PUT
09/10/09 11:23:48 IN THOSE BIKE LANES.
09/10/09 11:23:50 I'M HERE TO REPRESENT AN
09/10/09 11:23:53 ALLIANCE OF BIKE STORE OWNERS
09/10/09 11:23:55 AND TWO LAWYERS COMMITMENTED TO
09/10/09 11:23:56 GROWING BICYCLING.
09/10/09 11:23:58 WE'RE ASKING YOU TO PLEASE
09/10/09 11:23:59 CONSIDER AND PUT THOSE BIKE
09/10/09 11:23:59 LANES IN THERE.
09/10/09 11:24:00 I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM
09/10/09 11:24:01 IS.
09/10/09 11:24:03 I THINK YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WHERE
09/10/09 11:24:05 YOU HAVE SENIOR STAFF MEMBERS
09/10/09 11:24:07 WHO ARE NOT REALLY WITH THE
09/10/09 11:24:10 PROGRAM AS FAR AS THE ROLE OF
09/10/09 11:24:11 BICYCLES IN YOUR TRANSPORTATION
09/10/09 11:24:12 PLAN.
09/10/09 11:24:13 AS SUCH, THEY'RE NOT
09/10/09 11:24:16 ENTHUSIASTIC ENOUGH
09/10/09 11:24:18 TO PUT THE
09/10/09 11:24:21 BIKE LANES IN.
09/10/09 11:24:23 IN TYLER AND CASS, THIS SHOULD
09/10/09 11:24:24 BE A NO BRAINER.
09/10/09 11:24:26 I'M ASKING TO PUT THE BIKE
09/10/09 11:24:29 LANES IN ON TYLER
09/10/09 11:24:30 AND CASS.
09/10/09 11:24:33 ONE FINAL REMINDER, THE BIKE
09/10/09 11:24:36 FESTIVAL IS HELD
09/10/09 11:24:38 OCTOBER 11,

09/10/09 11:24:42 LINDA IS GOING TO BE RECEIVING
09/10/09 11:24:43 AN AWARD.
09/10/09 11:24:44 I WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO SOME
09/10/09 11:24:45 RESPONSE AS FAR AS WHAT THE
09/10/09 11:24:47 CITY IS GOING TO DO ABOUT THE
09/10/09 11:24:50 BIKE LANES ON TYLER AND CASS,
09/10/09 11:24:53 WHICH WERE IN YOUR
09/10/09 11:24:55 MASTER PLAN.
09/10/09 11:24:55 THANKS.
09/10/09 11:24:57 >> THANK YOU NICK.
09/10/09 11:24:59 >> MICHAEL FARMER 2619 EAST
09/10/09 11:25:00 CURTIS STREET.
09/10/09 11:25:03 I'M HERE THIS MORNING BECAUSE
09/10/09 11:25:06 OF THE PURCHASE OF THE HONKY
09/10/09 11:25:09 TONK
09/10/09 11:25:11 BAR.
09/10/09 11:25:13 WHEN WAS IN THE CAC MEETING, IT
09/10/09 11:25:16 WAS TOLD TO CAC AT THAT TIME
09/10/09 11:25:18 THAT PARTICULAR BUILDING HAS
09/10/09 11:25:20 ASBESTOS IN IT.
09/10/09 11:25:22 ONE, I WANT TO FIND OUT FROM
09/10/09 11:25:25 LEGAL WHETHER IT'S LEGAL TO BUY
09/10/09 11:25:26 A BUILDING THAT'S
09/10/09 11:25:27 ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARD.
09/10/09 11:25:29 TWO, WHERE IS THIS MONEY GOING
09/10/09 11:25:30 TO COME TO CLEAN IT UP?
09/10/09 11:25:34 DOES THE TIF FUND NOW HAVE TO
09/10/09 11:25:35 BUY A BUILDING THAT'S GOT A
09/10/09 11:25:37 HAZARD IN IT, NOW WE TAKE TIF
09/10/09 11:25:39 MONEY TO FIX IT UP?
09/10/09 11:25:41 OF COURSE THERE WAS NO
09/10/09 11:25:42 ELABORATION ON JUST HOW MUCH OF
09/10/09 11:25:44 ASBESTOS IS IN THIS BUILDING,
09/10/09 11:25:47 BUT IT IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL
09/10/09 11:25:50 HAZARD TO THE COMMUNITY OR
09/10/09 11:25:53 ANYONE ELSE.
09/10/09 11:25:54 THE RAINBOW HEIGHTS PRESIDENT
09/10/09 11:25:55 WAS EXPRESSING HER, THAT YOU
09/10/09 11:25:56 KNOW, YOU COULD USE IT FOR
09/10/09 11:25:58 CHILDREN IN THAT AREA.
09/10/09 11:26:00 SO WE MUST BE CONCERNED, VERY
09/10/09 11:26:03 CONCERNED WHEN WE'RE GOING
09/10/09 11:26:03 TO
09/10/09 11:26:06 TAKE
09/10/09 11:26:09 TIF
09/10/09 11:26:12 DOLLARS AND
09/10/09 11:26:14 BUY
09/10/09 11:26:16 BUILDINGS THAT ARE
09/10/09 11:26:17 ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARD.
09/10/09 11:26:19 IS IT WITHIN PUBLIC MONEY TO DO
09/10/09 11:26:19 THAT?
09/10/09 11:26:21 ALSO, I WANT TO EXPRESS MY
09/10/09 11:26:21 CONCERN.
09/10/09 11:26:23 I KNOW YOU'RE ELATED THAT THE
09/10/09 11:26:25 COMMUNITY LAKES ARE BEING
09/10/09 11:26:27 SPRUCED UP, AND THEY DO LOOK
09/10/09 11:26:30 BEAUTIFUL, YOU PUT MILLIONS OF
09/10/09 11:26:32 DOLLARS IN THEM.
09/10/09 11:26:35 BUT MY CONCERN IS THAT WE MUST
09/10/09 11:26:36 REALLY BE CONCERNED OF THE
09/10/09 11:26:39 PEOPLE WHO LIVE NEXT TO THOSE
09/10/09 11:26:39 LAKES.
09/10/09 11:26:40 I HAVE TWO OF THEM.
09/10/09 11:26:43 ONE DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF MY
09/10/09 11:26:45 HOUSE, AND THE OTHER ONE THAT
09/10/09 11:26:46 YOU WAS TALK BEING ON 30th
09/10/09 11:26:47 STREET.
09/10/09 11:26:48 THE ONE IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE, I
09/10/09 11:26:51 CAME BEFORE CITY COUNCIL AND I
09/10/09 11:26:53 BELIEVE THAT THAT'S HOW WE
09/10/09 11:26:56 VOTED FOR A 2% INCREASE FOR THE
09/10/09 11:26:56 CITY TO MAINTAIN THESE.
09/10/09 11:26:59 I HAVE HAD A PROBLEM JUST
09/10/09 11:27:02 TRYING TO GET YOU TO
09/10/09 11:27:02 UPGRADE
09/10/09 11:27:04 AND FIX THE FALLEN DOWN CEMENT
09/10/09 11:27:06 IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE.
09/10/09 11:27:08 WELL, YOU TELL ME, OH, THAT'S
09/10/09 11:27:11 NOT ON THE TOP OF OUR LIST.
09/10/09 11:27:14 BUT YET WE'VE TAKEN, WE'VE
09/10/09 11:27:16 TAXED THE CITIZENS FOR
09/10/09 11:27:17 IMPROVEMENTS.
09/10/09 11:27:18 THE PALM TREES NEEDED TRIMMING
09/10/09 11:27:19 UP.
09/10/09 11:27:20 CLEAN CITY CAME OUT AT ONE TIME
09/10/09 11:27:23 AND DID A LITTLE BIT.
09/10/09 11:27:25 BUT THE OVERGROWTH IS KILLING
09/10/09 11:27:26 THESE TREES.
09/10/09 11:27:27 THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL TREES AROUND
09/10/09 11:27:28 THERE, BUT THEY'RE DOING
09/10/09 11:27:31 NOTHING ABOUT THE OVERGROWTH.
09/10/09 11:27:33 THEN THE CEMENT STRUCTURE IN
09/10/09 11:27:36 IT, YOU KNOW, IT'S FALLEN DOWN,
09/10/09 11:27:39 AND WHEN I WAKE UP AND OPEN
09/10/09 11:27:41 MY
09/10/09 11:27:43 WINDOW AND LOOK OUT, WHAT DO I
09/10/09 11:27:44 SEE?
09/10/09 11:27:45 A WHOLE BUNCH OF TRASH OUT
09/10/09 11:27:48 THERE IN THE LAKE, SO WE
09/10/09 11:27:48 NEED
09/10/09 11:27:51 SOMETHING TO CLEAN THAT
09/10/09 11:27:51 UP.
09/10/09 11:27:53 LASTLY, I'M A LITTLE BIT
09/10/09 11:27:55 CONCERNED ALSO WHICH, IF YOU'RE
09/10/09 11:27:56 GOING TO DEVELOP THESE
09/10/09 11:27:58 COMMUNITY LAKES, YOU HAVE TO
09/10/09 11:27:59 UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE LIVE
09/10/09 11:28:02 AROUND IT, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
09/10/09 11:28:05 STRANGERS COMING CLOSE TO
09/10/09 11:28:06 OUR
09/10/09 11:28:09 VICINITY THAT WE DON'T
09/10/09 11:28:12 EVEN
09/10/09 11:28:12 KNOW.
09/10/09 11:28:13 AND ALSO WITH THE LIGHT RAIL.
09/10/09 11:28:16 I LIVE ABOUT 25 FEET FROM THE
09/10/09 11:28:16 RAILROAD TRACKS.
09/10/09 11:28:19 NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE
09/10/09 11:28:20 PLAN
09/10/09 11:28:21 IS.
09/10/09 11:28:23 IF YOU'RE GOING TO USE CSX
09/10/09 11:28:25 RAILROAD TRACK TO COME AND USE
09/10/09 11:28:27 IT, WHETHER THAT'S GOING TO BE
09/10/09 11:28:28 SOMETHING THAT'S DEVELOPED.
09/10/09 11:28:30 I WOULD CONCERNED ABOUT BEING
09/10/09 11:28:31 NOTIFIED AT LEAST BY MAIL OR
09/10/09 11:28:33 SOMEWHERE WHAT'S GOING ON NEXT
09/10/09 11:28:35 TO THE COMMUNITY LAKES AND THE
09/10/09 11:28:36 RAIL SYSTEM IF IT'S GOING TO
09/10/09 11:28:37 IMPACT IN ME IN THE
09/10/09 11:28:39 NEIGHBORHOOD OF PEOPLE THAT ARE
09/10/09 11:28:41 GOING TO BE THERE.
09/10/09 11:28:41 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 11:28:44 >> MR. PALMER, YOU LIVE BY
09/10/09 11:28:45 WHICH ONE?
09/10/09 11:28:47 THE ONE ON 30th AND ORANGE?
09/10/09 11:28:47 >> YEAH.
09/10/09 11:28:50 AND THE ONE ON OSBORN NEXT TO
09/10/09 11:28:52 THE RAILROAD TRACKS.
09/10/09 11:28:54 IT'S TWO OF THEM.
09/10/09 11:28:56 ONE DIRECTLY IN FRONT.
09/10/09 11:28:59 >> I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT
09/10/09 11:28:59 WAS ONE.
09/10/09 11:29:01 >> ONE IS ON ONE SIDE.
09/10/09 11:29:03 >> THEY LOOK LIKE THEY'RE
09/10/09 11:29:04 TOGETHER THOUGH.
09/10/09 11:29:05 I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ONE BIG
09/10/09 11:29:06 HUGE ONE.
09/10/09 11:29:09 >> ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE
09/10/09 11:29:11 RAILROAD TRACKS.
09/10/09 11:29:12 >> I UNDERSTAND.
09/10/09 11:29:14 >> THEY WERE COMBINED.
09/10/09 11:29:15 >> I UNDERSTAND.
09/10/09 11:29:18 >> FROM THE RAILROAD TRACKS
09/10/09 11:29:18 AT
09/10/09 11:29:19 30th.
09/10/09 11:29:21 >> YEAH, THAT'S ONE LAKE THERE.
09/10/09 11:29:22 BUT THEN ON CURTIS STREET THERE
09/10/09 11:29:25 ON THE WEST
09/10/09 11:29:27 SIDE OF THE
09/10/09 11:29:30 RAILROAD TRACKS THERE'S A PALM
09/10/09 11:29:30 DIRECTLY IN FRONT.
09/10/09 11:29:33 >> HE WAS EXPLAINING THAT I
09/10/09 11:29:37 GUESS AND WE
09/10/09 11:29:38 CAN HAVE MR. HUARD
09/10/09 11:29:39 OR SOMEBODY CAN TAKE A LOOK AT
09/10/09 11:29:42 THAT AND SEE WHAT CAN BE DONE.
09/10/09 11:29:43 THAT'S A LEGITIMATE POINT I
09/10/09 11:29:44 AGREE WITH THAT.
09/10/09 11:29:47 BUT I WILL SAY MR. FARMER THAT
09/10/09 11:29:50 WHILE EVERYBODY MAY NOT AGREE
09/10/09 11:29:53 WITH THOSE, KEEP IN MIND, THEY
09/10/09 11:29:54 HAVE IMPROVED THEM 100% AND
09/10/09 11:29:57 THEY ADD VALUE TO YOUR PROPERTY
09/10/09 11:29:58 WHETHER YOU RECOGNIZE [
09/10/09 11:29:59 INAUDIBLE ] THEY REALLY ADD
09/10/09 11:30:03 VALUE TO THE
09/10/09 11:30:05 PROPERTY AND THE
09/10/09 11:30:06 ONE THAT'S ACROSS THE STREET IS
09/10/09 11:30:07 JUST ADDED SO MUCH TO THE AREA.
09/10/09 11:30:10 >> IT IS BEAUTIFUL, THEY ARE
09/10/09 11:30:10 VERY, VERY BEAUTIFUL.
09/10/09 11:30:12 THE ONLY CONCERN I WANT YOU TO
09/10/09 11:30:15 UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE
09/10/09 11:30:15 COMING.
09/10/09 11:30:17 I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE CRIME
09/10/09 11:30:19 THAT'S GOING TO COME IN, YOU
09/10/09 11:30:22 KNOW, BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE COMING
09/10/09 11:30:24 FROM EVERYWHERE, THEY LOOK AT
09/10/09 11:30:25 THIS BEAUTIFUL LAKE AND BRING
09/10/09 11:30:26 THEIR FAMILIES, AND YOU GOT
09/10/09 11:30:27 PEOPLE THAT YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW
09/10/09 11:30:30 IS IN YOUR
09/10/09 11:30:31 COMMUNITY NOW, CLOSE
09/10/09 11:30:32 TO YOU.
09/10/09 11:30:33 >> Gwen Miller: HOPEFULLY THE
09/10/09 11:30:35 POLICE WILL BE AN AREA TO
09/10/09 11:30:36 CONTROL ON CRIME.
09/10/09 11:30:39 WHAT HAPPENS IS, IT'S LIKE A
09/10/09 11:30:41 PARK, AND THEN IT DRAWS FAMILY.
09/10/09 11:30:42 NOW MOST PEOPLE I SEE TO BE
09/10/09 11:30:43 WALKING, THEY WALK IN THE
09/10/09 11:30:44 MORNINGS AND AFTERNOON.
09/10/09 11:30:45 THAT'S PRETTY MUCH WHAT I'VE
09/10/09 11:30:49 SEEN A LOT OF, BUT HOPEFULLY
09/10/09 11:30:50 SOME OF THAT CRIMINALITY CAN BE
09/10/09 11:30:51 CONTROLLED.
09/10/09 11:30:52 >> I DON'T WANT TO BRING A
09/10/09 11:30:54 NEGATIVITY ON IT, BUT JUST LIKE
09/10/09 11:30:58 THE FAIR OAKS
09/10/09 11:31:00 PARK, WHEN IT
09/10/09 11:31:03 WAS FIRST THERE, I WENT
09/10/09 11:31:03 WALKING, BUT WHAT HAPPENED?
09/10/09 11:31:05 DRUG SMOKING, GAMBLING RIGHT
09/10/09 11:31:07 DURING THE OPEN DAY.
09/10/09 11:31:10 A POLICE I WOULD WANT TO TAKE
09/10/09 11:31:12 MY CHILD AT I FIND, NOW I CAN'T
09/10/09 11:31:13 DO IT.
09/10/09 11:31:14 THIS IS MY CONCERN, BECAUSE OF
09/10/09 11:31:16 MY OBSERVATION AND I HAVE BEEN
09/10/09 11:31:18 THERE, SO WHEN YOU'RE DOING
09/10/09 11:31:21 THIS, WE'VE GOT TO MAKE
09/10/09 11:31:21 SURE
09/10/09 11:31:23 ABOUT THOSE WHO LIVE CLOSE
09/10/09 11:31:24 PROXIMITY TO THESE LAKES, AND
09/10/09 11:31:25 WHEN WE BRING PEOPLE IN, THE
09/10/09 11:31:27 TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT'S GOING TO
09/10/09 11:31:30 BE COMING IN THAT AREA, NOT
09/10/09 11:31:31 SAYING EVERYBODY'S BAD.
09/10/09 11:31:33 NOT THE SAYING THAT AT ALL, AND
09/10/09 11:31:36 IT IS BEAUTIFUL,
09/10/09 11:31:40 THEY ARE VERY,
09/10/09 11:31:41 VERY BEAUTIFUL.
09/10/09 11:31:42 >> Gwen Miller: MADAM CHAIR, I
09/10/09 11:31:43 WANT TO FOLLOW UP ON ANOTHER
09/10/09 11:31:44 ISSUE.
09/10/09 11:31:47 >> HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF THAT
09/10/09 11:31:49 FOR YOU.
09/10/09 11:31:51 >> THE ISSUE ABOUT THE --
09/10/09 11:31:52 >> Gwen Miller: I WAS GOING TO
09/10/09 11:31:53 MENTION, MAYBE THERE'S AN
09/10/09 11:31:54 OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A CRIME
09/10/09 11:31:57 WATCH IN THAT AREA,
09/10/09 11:31:58 SOMETHING
09/10/09 11:32:00 OF THAT NATURE THAT MIGHT HELP.
09/10/09 11:32:03 SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO AS A
09/10/09 11:32:05 COMMUNITY AS A PEOPLE AS A
09/10/09 11:32:05 NEIGHBORHOOD.
09/10/09 11:32:06 WE NEED TO FORM CRIME WATCH,
09/10/09 11:32:08 YOU KNOW, AND THAT'S SOMETHING
09/10/09 11:32:10 THAT WE CAN DO.
09/10/09 11:32:12 SOMETHING THE POLICE NEED TO
09/10/09 11:32:12 DO.
09/10/09 11:32:13 BUT THAT'S SOMETHING WE NEED TO
09/10/09 11:32:14 DO OURSELVES.
09/10/09 11:32:16 LET ME JUST FOLLOW UP ON ONE
09/10/09 11:32:18 OTHER THING MR. JOHNSON IN
09/10/09 11:32:21 TERMS OF THE PROPERTY
09/10/09 11:32:24 THAT WAS
09/10/09 11:32:25 PURCHASED.
09/10/09 11:32:26 GENERALLY, THAT WAS ALSO [
09/10/09 11:32:28 INAUDIBLE ] BEFORE THE FINAL
09/10/09 11:32:28 SALE.
09/10/09 11:32:30 THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN ON THIS
09/10/09 11:32:30 PIECE OF PROPERTY?
09/10/09 11:32:33 >> IT SURE DID.
09/10/09 11:32:36 AS I REPORTED EARLIER, WE
09/10/09 11:32:37 UTILIZED OUR BROWNS FIELD
09/10/09 11:32:39 ASSESSMENT GRANT DOLLARS TO
09/10/09 11:32:41 ASSESS THAT PROPERTY PRIOR TO
09/10/09 11:32:41 PURCHASING IT.
09/10/09 11:32:44 THERE WAS A NOTE BY THE
09/10/09 11:32:47 ASSESSMENT TEAM THAT THERE WERE
09/10/09 11:32:49 SOME POTENTIAL ASBESTOS
09/10/09 11:32:50 SHINGLES THAT WERE ON THE
09/10/09 11:32:53 OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING, NOT IN
09/10/09 11:32:53 THE BUILDING.
09/10/09 11:32:54 THEY HAVE SUBSEQUENTLY BEEN
09/10/09 11:32:56 REMOVED FROM THE PROPERTY.
09/10/09 11:32:59 SO THE BUILDING IS NOT, WAS NOT
09/10/09 11:33:02 DETERMINED TO HAVE ASBESTOS
09/10/09 11:33:05 IN
09/10/09 11:33:08 IT, BUT SOME SHINGLES
09/10/09 11:33:09 WERE, --
09/10/09 11:33:10 >> Gwen Miller: THAT'S BEEN
09/10/09 11:33:11 TAKEN CARE OF.
09/10/09 11:33:13 WE JUST WANT TO KNOW IF THAT'S
09/10/09 11:33:16 THE CASE, THAT YOU
09/10/09 11:33:18 HAVE ALREADY
09/10/09 11:33:19 REMEDIED THE SITUATION.
09/10/09 11:33:19 >> THAT'S CORRECT.
09/10/09 11:33:22 >> NEXT SPEAKER.
09/10/09 11:33:25 >> COULD I ASK YOU
09/10/09 11:33:28 A
09/10/09 11:33:31 QUESTION?
09/10/09 11:33:33 ALL RIGHT.
09/10/09 11:33:36 I LOVE AL.
09/10/09 11:33:38 MADAM CHAIRMAN AND OTHER
09/10/09 11:33:38 MEMBERS.
09/10/09 11:33:41 I'M AL DAVIS, A RESIDENT AND
09/10/09 11:33:44 PROPERTY OWNER.
09/10/09 11:33:45 AND THE EAST TAMPA CRA.
09/10/09 11:33:48 THERE ARE ABOUT THREE THINGS
09/10/09 11:33:51 MADAM CHAIRMAN I'D LIKE
09/10/09 11:33:54 TO
09/10/09 11:33:57 BRING FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN
09/10/09 11:33:59 RESPONSE.
09/10/09 11:34:02 NUMBER 1 HAS TO DO WITH THE
09/10/09 11:34:05 POLICY
09/10/09 11:34:08 OF THIS BOARD
09/10/09 11:34:10 CONCERNING
09/10/09 11:34:10 THE CAC.
09/10/09 11:34:13 PARTICULARLY TO EXHIBIT ONE
09/10/09 11:34:16 WHICH OUTLINES THE
09/10/09 11:34:19 AREA,
09/10/09 11:34:20 WHICH
09/10/09 11:34:21 OUTLINES THE NUMBER OF
09/10/09 11:34:23 INDIVIDUALS CAC MEMBERS OF THE
09/10/09 11:34:26 AREA, AND THE CATEGORY THAT IS
09/10/09 11:34:29 A CATEGORY OF AT
09/10/09 11:34:30 LARGE IN ABOUT
09/10/09 11:34:33 FOUR OF THE CRA.
09/10/09 11:34:36 AND IT WOULD
09/10/09 11:34:38 BE HELPFUL IF THE
09/10/09 11:34:41 BOARD WOULD CLARIFY
09/10/09 11:34:42 WHAT IT
09/10/09 11:34:45 MEANS BY AT-LARGE.
09/10/09 11:34:49 DOES IT MEAN WITHIN THE
09/10/09 11:34:50 AREA
09/10/09 11:34:50 ONLY?
09/10/09 11:34:53 OR DOES IT MEANING
09/10/09 11:34:54 SOMETHING
09/10/09 11:34:55 ELSE?
09/10/09 11:34:58 TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE,
09/10/09 11:34:59 THE
09/10/09 11:35:02 CITY COUNCIL
09/10/09 11:35:04 ITSELF IS MADE UP
09/10/09 11:35:07 OF SINGLE MEMBER AREAS
09/10/09 11:35:10 THEN YOU
09/10/09 11:35:13 HAVE AT-LARGE.
09/10/09 11:35:16 THE AT-LARGE IS STILL
09/10/09 11:35:16 WITHIN
09/10/09 11:35:17 THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF TAMPA.
09/10/09 11:35:19 THEN THERE WOULD BE OTHER FOLKS
09/10/09 11:35:22 OUTSIDE OF TAMPA, AND THEY
09/10/09 11:35:24 WANT
09/10/09 11:35:27 TO COME AND RUN
09/10/09 11:35:28 THE CITY?
09/10/09 11:35:31 BUT RULES ARE THAT YOU HAVE TO
09/10/09 11:35:33 BE WITHIN THE CITY OF TAMPA TO
09/10/09 11:35:36 PARTICIPATE IF YOU WILL FROM
09/10/09 11:35:38 THAT PERSPECTIVE THAT IS.
09/10/09 11:35:39 SO I NEED THAT CLARIFIED MADAM
09/10/09 11:35:40 CHAIRMAN.
09/10/09 11:35:42 RATHER, IT WOULD BE OF INTEREST
09/10/09 11:35:45 TO HAVE IT CLARIFIED BECAUSE IT
09/10/09 11:35:47 WOULD HAVE AN EFFECT.
09/10/09 11:35:50 NOW I DO NOTE THAT
09/10/09 11:35:53 IF YOU WERE
09/10/09 11:35:56 TO TABULATE THE NUMBER
09/10/09 11:35:57 OF
09/10/09 11:35:58 VOLUNTEERS, I MEAN THEY ARE
09/10/09 11:35:59 VOLUNTEERS.
09/10/09 11:36:02 YOU DON'T PAY THEM
09/10/09 11:36:04 NOTHING.
09/10/09 11:36:07 BUT THEY WANT TO CONTRIBUTE
09/10/09 11:36:07 TO
09/10/09 11:36:09 AND PROVIDE INPUT TO THE
09/10/09 11:36:12 DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR
09/10/09 11:36:13 COMMUNITY.
09/10/09 11:36:14 THAT'S WONDERFUL.
09/10/09 11:36:17 MR.SCOTT, COUNCILMAN SCOTT, I
09/10/09 11:36:19 REALLY APPRECIATE THAT LITTLE
09/10/09 11:36:22 ORAL HISTORY
09/10/09 11:36:25 CONCERNING HOW YOU
09/10/09 11:36:26 CAME TO BE.
09/10/09 11:36:29 VOLUNTEERISM IS ONE THING.
09/10/09 11:36:32 SERVICE RENDER IS ANOTHER
09/10/09 11:36:32 THING.
09/10/09 11:36:34 THE KIND OF SERVICE RENDERING,
09/10/09 11:36:37 AND THESE VOLUNTEERS, I THINK
09/10/09 11:36:38 I
09/10/09 11:36:41 LOOKED AT YOU HAVE ABOUT 77
09/10/09 11:36:42 IF
09/10/09 11:36:45 YOU TABULATE ALL OF THE
09/10/09 11:36:47 CAC
09/10/09 11:36:50 FROM THE
09/10/09 11:36:52 VARIOUS CRAS.
09/10/09 11:36:55 OF THAT 77, YOU GOT
09/10/09 11:36:56 APPROXIMATELY 43 THAT [
09/10/09 11:36:57 INAUDIBLE ] SPECIFICALLY WITH
09/10/09 11:36:58 THE SPECIFIC GROUPS SO I NEED
09/10/09 11:37:01 THAT ANSWER, BECAUSE I DO
09/10/09 11:37:02 NOT
09/10/09 11:37:03 WANT TO RUN OUT OF TIME TODAY.
09/10/09 11:37:05 THERE'S TWO OTHER THINGS I CAN
09/10/09 11:37:08 TAKE CARE OF WHEN WE
09/10/09 11:37:09 COME
09/10/09 11:37:09 TOGETHER NEXT MONTH.
09/10/09 11:37:12 >> HE WOULD GET BACK WITH YOU
09/10/09 11:37:14 ON THAT.
09/10/09 11:37:16 >> I CAN JUST ADDRESS IT
09/10/09 11:37:16 QUICKLY.
09/10/09 11:37:18 THERE'S TWO DIFFERENT QUESTIONS
09/10/09 11:37:18 HERE.
09/10/09 11:37:19 I THINK THE AT-LARGE, IN THE
09/10/09 11:37:21 POLICY REFERS TO SOMEONE WHO
09/10/09 11:37:23 DOESN'T FALL INTO A CATEGORY,
09/10/09 11:37:25 NOT A GEOGRAPHIC AREA, I KNOW
09/10/09 11:37:27 I'VE TALKED TO MR. DAVIS ABOUT
09/10/09 11:37:27 THIS.
09/10/09 11:37:29 WE HAVE CATEGORIES OF BUSINESS
09/10/09 11:37:31 AND RESIDENTIAL, THE AT-LARGE
09/10/09 11:37:33 MEANS SOMEONE DOESN'T FALL INTO
09/10/09 11:37:36 ONE OF THOSE CATEGORIES.
09/10/09 11:37:38 MR.DAVIS IS ASKING A DIFFERENT
09/10/09 11:37:39 QUESTION, HE'S ASKING IF
09/10/09 11:37:41 SOMEBODY HAS TO LIVE THERE TO
09/10/09 11:37:41 HAVE A BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP
09/10/09 11:37:42 THERE, AND THAT IS NOT
09/10/09 11:37:43 ADDRESSED IN THE POLICIES.
09/10/09 11:37:46 >> DO YOU THINK THAT SHOULD BE
09/10/09 11:37:47 ADDRESSED IN THE POLICIES?
09/10/09 11:37:50 >> THAT'S NOT FOR ME TO
09/10/09 11:37:52 SAY,
09/10/09 11:37:54 THAT'S FOR YOU TO SAY.
09/10/09 11:37:55 >> LET ME JUST RESPOND TO THAT.
09/10/09 11:37:58 YOU HAVE TO
09/10/09 11:37:59 BE CAREFUL, BECAUSE
09/10/09 11:38:00 EVEN THOUGH YOU LIVE IN THE
09/10/09 11:38:02 AREA, THE TAX DOLLARS COME FROM
09/10/09 11:38:03 ALL OVER.
09/10/09 11:38:06 YOU'VE GOT TO BE
09/10/09 11:38:06 CAREFUL, THE
09/10/09 11:38:08 COUNTY THEY'RE PROBABLY PUTTING
09/10/09 11:38:11 THE TAX DOLLARS IN THE CRAS.
09/10/09 11:38:13 SO YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP IN FIND,
09/10/09 11:38:16 WHAT YOU'RE --MIND
09/10/09 11:38:16 WHAT YOU'RE
09/10/09 11:38:18 DOING IS NOT LIMITED.
09/10/09 11:38:19 WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO CHANGE
09/10/09 11:38:22 THE WAY CRA, THE
09/10/09 11:38:24 GOVERNOR,
09/10/09 11:38:25 WHATEVER THAT THING, BACK
09/10/09 11:38:26 LEGALLY, THAT YOU, THEY HAVE TO
09/10/09 11:38:28 BE, I SAY THEY HAVE TO BE
09/10/09 11:38:29 WITHIN THE CITY OF TAMPA, BUT
09/10/09 11:38:32 NOT IN THE COUNTY I THINK
09/10/09 11:38:34 THE
09/10/09 11:38:35 WAY THAT'S SAID.
09/10/09 11:38:36 I COULD BE WRONG.
09/10/09 11:38:39 >> NO, THE MONEY ITSELF,
09/10/09 11:38:40 IS
09/10/09 11:38:41 MONEY THAT IS ACTUALLY
09/10/09 11:38:43 GENERATED IN THE CRA AREA, SO
09/10/09 11:38:44 THEY ARE CONTRIBUTING, BUT
09/10/09 11:38:46 THEY'RE CONTRIBUTING TO A
09/10/09 11:38:46 DIFFERENT AREA.
09/10/09 11:38:47 WE DIDN'T ADDRESS IN OUR
09/10/09 11:38:49 POLICIES AS FAR AS WHERE THE
09/10/09 11:38:51 PERSON HAS TO COME FROM.
09/10/09 11:38:54 THERE'S NOTHING IN OTHER POLICY
09/10/09 11:38:55 THAT ADDRESSES GEOGRAPHICAL AT-
09/10/09 11:38:57 LARGE, WHAT WE'RE DEALING WITH
09/10/09 11:38:58 HERE IS THE AT-LARGE AS OPPOSED
09/10/09 11:39:01 TO SOMEONE WHO IS A RESIDENT,
09/10/09 11:39:04 SOMEONE WHO IS
09/10/09 11:39:05 A BUSINESS
09/10/09 11:39:08 OWNER, THEN THERE'S THE AT-
09/10/09 11:39:11 LARGE THAT DOESN'T FIT
09/10/09 11:39:11 INTO.
09/10/09 11:39:13 >> THAT'S IN THE POLICY.
09/10/09 11:39:15 >> THE AT-LARGE REFERS TO A
09/10/09 11:39:19 CATEGORY OF PEOPLE, NOT A
09/10/09 11:39:19 GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION.
09/10/09 11:39:21 WE DON'T ADDRESS THE
09/10/09 11:39:23 GEOGRAPHICAL ASPECT IN THE
09/10/09 11:39:24 POLICIES.
09/10/09 11:39:24 >> OKAY.
09/10/09 11:39:27 >> I DIDN'T HAVE ANY MORE ON
09/10/09 11:39:27 AL.
09/10/09 11:39:29 ALES THANKS FOR COMING DOWN --
09/10/09 11:39:31 AL, THANKS FOR COMING DOWN AND
09/10/09 11:39:33 GIVING US YOUR INPUT.
09/10/09 11:39:36 I HAVE A QUESTION
09/10/09 11:39:37 FOR STAFF,
09/10/09 11:39:37 UNRELATED TO MR. DAVIS.
09/10/09 11:39:40 >> DID THAT ANSWER
09/10/09 11:39:41 YOUR
09/10/09 11:39:42 QUESTION?
09/10/09 11:39:42 >> NO MA'AM.
09/10/09 11:39:43 >> WHAT DIDN'T ANSWER?
09/10/09 11:39:45 >> WHAT WAS YOUR ANSWER?
09/10/09 11:39:47 >> HE SAID IT'S NOT IN YOUR
09/10/09 11:39:48 POLICY BOOK.
09/10/09 11:39:52 >> I KNOW IT, BUT YOU'VE
09/10/09 11:39:53 GOT
09/10/09 11:39:53 THE AT-LARGE POLICY.
09/10/09 11:39:56 IF IT'S
09/10/09 11:39:59 NOT IN THE POLICY,
09/10/09 11:40:01 WE'VE GOT TO --
09/10/09 11:40:03 >> THE PERSON IS A SPECIFIC
09/10/09 11:40:04 CATEGORY, NOT A GEOGRAPHIC
09/10/09 11:40:05 AREA.
09/10/09 11:40:06 WE HAVE A LARGE BUSINESS, SMALL
09/10/09 11:40:06 BUSINESS.
09/10/09 11:40:08 THE AT LARGE IS SOMEONE WHO
09/10/09 11:40:11 DOESN'T FIT INTO ONE OF THOSE
09/10/09 11:40:11 CATEGORIES.
09/10/09 11:40:12 IT'S NOT REFERRING TO THE
09/10/09 11:40:13 GEOGRAPHICAL AREA.
09/10/09 11:40:16 THE BOARD HAS NO POLICY ON THE
09/10/09 11:40:17 GEOGRAPHICAL QUESTION.
09/10/09 11:40:20 >> SO IN OTHER
09/10/09 11:40:23 WORDS, ANYONE
09/10/09 11:40:25 OUTSIDE THAT'S NOT WITHIN THE
09/10/09 11:40:29 AREA, OR LET ME PUT IT
09/10/09 11:40:29 THIS
09/10/09 11:40:30 WAY, CONVERSELY THEN, IF AN
09/10/09 11:40:32 INDIVIDUAL WHO IS NOT A
09/10/09 11:40:34 RESIDENT, WHO IS NOT EMPLOYED
09/10/09 11:40:35 IN THE ACTUAL AREA --
09/10/09 11:40:36 >> MR. DAVIS, AFTER THE
09/10/09 11:40:37 MEETING, MEET WITH THE
09/10/09 11:40:38 ATTORNEY, WE HAVE TO MOVE.
09/10/09 11:40:41 WE HAVE SOME MORE
09/10/09 11:40:42 BUSINESS TO
09/10/09 11:40:43 TAKE CARE OF.
09/10/09 11:40:46 >>
09/10/09 11:40:47 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 11:40:47 >> THANK YOU.
09/10/09 11:40:50 GENTLEMAN FROM URS.
09/10/09 11:40:53 >> DRAFT LOOKS VERY
09/10/09 11:40:55 COMPREHENSIVE, AND ON OUR
09/10/09 11:40:57 SCREEN IT SAYS FEEDBACK DUE BY
09/10/09 11:41:00 NOVEMBER 9. I WILL
09/10/09 11:41:03 GIVE YOU A
09/10/09 11:41:05 LITTLE TODAY.
09/10/09 11:41:08 ON PAGE 27, EXCUSE ME, ON PAGE
09/10/09 11:41:11 49, IT SPEAKS TO THE 22nd
09/10/09 11:41:12 STREET IMPROVEMENTS.
09/10/09 11:41:15 WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THAT A
09/10/09 11:41:18 LITTLE
09/10/09 11:41:21 EARLIER TODAY.
09/10/09 11:41:22 IT SAYS, IT SAYS IMPROVEMENTS
09/10/09 11:41:25 RESURFACE, AND THAT SORT
09/10/09 11:41:28 OF
09/10/09 11:41:31 THING.
09/10/09 11:41:33 THEN ON BACK TO PAGE 27, IT
09/10/09 11:41:34 TALKS ABOUT BIKE LANES.
09/10/09 11:41:38 I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE
09/10/09 11:41:39 IF THE
09/10/09 11:41:42 CITY AND THE
09/10/09 11:41:44 CRA ARE DOING $10
09/10/09 11:41:47 MILLION OF IMPROVEMENTS TO
09/10/09 11:41:47 22nd
09/10/09 11:41:50 STREET, THAT IT INCLUDES BIKE
09/10/09 11:41:50 LANES.
09/10/09 11:41:53 RIGHT ABOVE IT TAKES ABOUT
09/10/09 11:41:56 A
09/10/09 11:41:57 LOT OF IMPROVEMENTS.
09/10/09 11:42:00 BUT I DIDN'T
09/10/09 11:42:03 SEE ANY REFERENCE
09/10/09 11:42:04 TO BIKE LANES.
09/10/09 11:42:07 >> THE CONCEPTUAL PLAN HAS BIKE
09/10/09 11:42:08 LANES IN IT.
09/10/09 11:42:10 >> LET'S MAKE SURE WE'RE
09/10/09 11:42:13 CONSISTENT ON THAT IN HERE, SO
09/10/09 11:42:15 WE DON'T LOSE THAT IMPORTANT
09/10/09 11:42:15 COMPONENT.
09/10/09 11:42:17 I HAVE A FEELING THAT EITHER
09/10/09 11:42:19 NOW, OR IN THE FUTURE,
09/10/09 11:42:22 BICYCLING WOULD BE A VERY
09/10/09 11:42:24 IMPORTANT ISSUE ON THAT MAJOR
09/10/09 11:42:24 NORTH-SOUTH ROAD.
09/10/09 11:42:27 >> ABSOLUTELY, MAKE
09/10/09 11:42:30 SURE
09/10/09 11:42:33 OF
09/10/09 11:42:33 THAT.
09/10/09 11:42:33 THANK YOU.
09/10/09 11:42:34 >> MR. HARRIS?
