Items for Individual Consideration

  • Item (1): request to rezone 36.5 acres of land located on the north side of Legacy Drive, 1,168 feet east of Alma Drive. 89 new apartments in 14 new buildings at Legends at Chase Oaks apartment complex. A previous version of this request came before council just over two years ago, and was denied 6-2. This time around it passed Planning & Zoning 5-2
  • Item (2): Review of the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report describing the use of funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) during the 2021-22 grant year

 

Notable Consent Agenda Items

Total of $6,838,705 of your money in proposed expenses

  • Item (b): $5,869,469 for ~2,100 linear feet of large diameter sewer upsizing and replacement, including two sewer aerial crossings across Pittman Creek and Spring Creek. This is the first of three sections of sewer lines scheduled for replacement to address surcharging, which can result in maintenance concerns and potential odor issues. This item does not address the odor issues nearest the Rowlett Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.
  • Item (c): $629,432 for 16 Milestone Husky Recording Servers, with 5 years of support, and software license upgrade to support our CIP Traffic CCTV expansion from 1,044 CCTV cameras to approximately 2,000 cameras over the next 2 years
  • Item (d): $328,800 for Pecan Hollow Golf Course Erosion Control for Holes 6 and 7
  • Item (f): to call for a public hearing on the creation of a new Downtown Plano Public Improvement District (PID) to replace the current one, which is expiring
  • Item (g): to call for a public hearing on the creation of a Haggard Farm Public Improvement District (PID) to sell $115 million in bonds to fund public infrastructure that historically would be the responsibility of the developer. These bonds would be repaid using proportional levies on the private property within the PID
  • Item (i): to transfer $2 million from the General Fund to the Rainy Day Fund
  • Item (j): to transfer $7 million from the Water & Sewer fund to the Sewer CIP Fund and Capital Maintenance Fund for this fiscal year to fund $5 million in Sewer Improvements at Data, Lotus & PGBT, Plano Parkway Parallel Interceptor, and Dallas North Trunk- Phase 2; and $2 million for a 3rd generator at the Ridgeview Pump Station. This money is from a surplus received in water & sewer revenues following the rate increase. At the last meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Prince and I said that to offset these expenses, we’d want to see next year’s Water & Sewer rates lowered commensurately.
