John Eckhardt, City Development, was present to testify on behalf of this ordinance. He gave background information to the committee.

He stated that this move was recommended by staff. Mr. Bryant further stated that a property buy out of the area was underway and that negotiations would be completed by September 30, 2002. Councilmember Nash asked for something tangible for the residents to back the commitment that the developer made. He requested that Mr. Bryant work closely with the residents to make sure that their concerns were met. Councilmember Ford spoke on the anticipated agreement that is in the works between Community Builders and LCRA. Jim Scott, applicant, was present to testify on behalf of this ordinance. Erick Scatliffe, resident, was present to testify on this ordinance. He stated that his property was damaged in a fire training exercise and questioned how he would be compensated in this program.

They stated that they did not believe that the 2002 date was fair since dates had been given in the past and not met. Mr. Bryant responded to some of the residents' concerns regarding Pine Valley Apartments, which were unrelated to this project but owned by Community Builders. He stated that a copy of the proposed agreement is available for inspection. Olivia Allen, resident, questioned what would happen if September, 2002 passed and Community Builders and the applicant did not keep their word. She asked what the legal recourse would be. LeRoy Herns, resident, testified against this ordinance because the residents concerns were not met.
