GREGORY. >> . >> THANK YOU. GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL. I AM HERE TONIGHT FOR A PUBLIC HEARING. THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING TO DISCUSS OR TO PROVIDE INPUT ON THE CITY’S IMPACT FEE ORDINANCE AND JUST REAL QUICKLY WELL LAST TIME WE UPDATED THE IMPACT FEES WE DID A COMPREHENSIVE UPDATE TO THE CITY’S ORDINANCE. AT THAT TIME WE WERE IMPLEMENTING SENATE BILL 1525 AND WE WERE USING THE MODEL CITY ORDINANCE THAT THE LEAGUE PUT TOGETHER FOR THE IMPACT FEES AND DID A COMPREHENSIVE UPDATE ON THE ACTUAL ORDINANCE. TONIGHT WE’RE DOING THE SAME THING AND READOPTING THE ORDINANCE ALTHOUGH I AM NOT CHANGING THE LICENSE OR RECOMMENDING CHANGES TO THE ORDINANCE. THE LANGUAGE THING WE’RE HAVING THE PUBLIC HEARING ON IS THE FEES WITH THE ORDINANCE BUT I WILL COVER SOME PROVISIONS OF IT HOWEVER TO GIVE YOU A SENSE. WE MIGHT — THERE YOU GO. OKAY. SO IT’S JUST A PUBLIC HEARING AND I WANT JUST TO GIVE A QUICK OVERVIEW. TONIGHT WE’RE STARTING THE FORMAL LAST PROCESS OF THE DEVELOPMENT IMPACT FEESES. I HAVE BEEN IN FRONT OF YOU A NUMBER OF TIMES OVER THE LAST SIX, EIGHT MONTHS TALKING ABOUT THE LAND USE ASSUMPTIONS AND THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN AND UPDATE ON THE STAKEHOLDER INPUT WE RECEIVED. IN APRIL YOU APPROVED THE LAND USE ASSUMES AND INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT PLAN THAT FORMED THE BASIS OF THE IMPACT FEE IN TERMS OF THE CALCULATION SO YOU HAVETO HAVE THOSE TWO ADOPTED FIRST AND THEN WE ADOPT THE FEE ORDINANCE SO TONIGHT WE WILL HAVE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND THEN ON AUGUST 13 I WILL COME BACK TO YOU FOR FORMAL ADOPTION OF THE ORDINANCE. I HAVE SHOWN THIS TO YOU BEFORE – BUT FOR THE VIEWNG AUDIENCE JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT WHEN YOU DO AN IMPACT FEE STUDY THERE’S SOME LENGTHY AND SORT OF COMPLEX PIECES THAT YOU HAVE TO KIND OF ALL PUT TOGETHER AND THAT INCLUDES FIRST LOOKING AT ALL THE DIFFERENT GROWTH PROJECTIONS WE HAVE IN THE CITY FOR ALL THE TYPE OF LAND USES THAT WE HAVE AND WE WANT TO USE úGOOD — THE BEST DATA THAT WE HAVE. WE LOOK AT MAG DATA WE DO úCONSENSUS DATA WE ALSO LOOK AT PEORIA SPECIFIC GROWTH, WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PEORIA? WE KNOW WHAT IS COMING THROUGH OUR DOORS IN TERMS OF OUR DEVELOPMENT REVIEW AND THOSE THINGS AND WE úHAVE PROJECTIONS ABOUT WHAT WE THINK IS GOING TO COME AND WHEN- AND WHERE. THE OTHER THING WE – LOOK AT WHAT ARE OUR NEEDS TO SERVE THE GROWTH OF THE CITY SO WE LOOK AT ALL PROJECTS WHETHER STREETS, PARKS, PUBLIC SERVICE FACILITIES. WHETHER THEY’RE WATER, WASTEWATER INFRASTRUCTURE, ALL THOSE TITCHES THINGS AND GET THAT ALL TOGETHER. IT’S NOT NECESSARILY WHAT WE HAVE IN THE CIP BUT MANY OF THE PROJECTS ARE INCLUDED IN THERE SO THAT’S WHAT THE INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT PLAN IS, AND IT CAN ONLY BE RELATED TO DEVELOPMENT THAT IS OCCURRING AS A RESLT OF GROWTH. WE ALWAYS DO INCLUDE — IT MENTIONS REGIONAL PROJECTS. A LOT OF THE WATER, WASTEWATER WE’RE FOCUSED ON THE REGIONAL PIECES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS INFRASTRUCTURE BECAUSE MUCHOF THE INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIRED FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT IS DONE AS PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT BY THE DEVELOPER BUT THOSE LINES THAT CONNECT ALL OF THE SYSTEM TOGETHER ARE THE ONES WE’RE FOCUSED ON IN SOME OF THE TREAT BUTLER WATER RECLAMATION – FACILITIES AND WE LOOK AT SURFACE AREAS AND DEPENDS WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT AND PARKS MAY HAVE A SERVCE AREA AND STREETS MAY HAVE A SERVICE AREA AND WE DO THAT TO SEE WHO IS BENEFITING AND THE NEXUS AND OF ABOUTING FROMTHE FACILITIES PUT IN AND WE’RE TRY TO USE THE NATURAL BOUNDARIES AS LINES ONLY BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU COULD BE SPLITTING A HOUSE IN HALF AND WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT SO WE TRY NOT TO DO THAT AND WHEN YOU PUT THEM TOGETHER AND FORM THE FEE CALCULATION AND COME UP WITH THE FEE LEVELS AND THE PROPORTIONATE SHARE OF EACH NEW UNIT OF DEVELOPMENT WHETHER RESIDENTIAL OR NOT NEEDS TO PAY IN ORDER TO PAY AND OFFSET THE CAPITAL INFRASTRUCTURE SO THAT’S WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT THIS EVENING IS THE FEE LEVELS WE’RE PROPOSING. I DO WANT TO MENTION QUICKLY THAT WE DO WORK THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS WITH A NUMBER OF OUR STAKEHOLDERS IN OUR DEVELOPMENT AREA, AND THAT INCLUDES ALL OF OUR VARIOUS REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS IN THE CITY A SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE MAJOR PLANS THAT ARE IN THE CITY AND MAJOR ENTITLEMENT PLANS IN THE CITY WE WORK WITH ALL OF úTHOSE DEVELOPERS. WE WORK WIT THE HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION. VARIOUS BUILDERS THAT ARE BUILDING IN THE CITY OR PLAN TO DO IN THE FUTURE AND WORK WITH THE MULTI-FAMILY BUILDERS AND WE HAVE A LOT OF FOLKS WE WORK WITH AND THEY PROVIDE INPUT ON THE GROWTH PROJECTIONS AND THE – INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN. WHAT DO THEY THINK ABOUT THE SERVICE AREAS? DID WE GET THEM RIGHT? WHAT ABOUT THE FIJI GEES? AND WE WANT TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNS AS WE GO THROUGH THE PROCESS. >> . >> BECAUSE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AN IMPACT FEE ORDINANCE JUST WANT TO GO THROUGH A COUPLE OF THE PARTS OF THE ORDINANCE THEY THINK ARE IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE OF AND AGAIN IT’S BEEN OVER FIVE YEARS SINCE WE TALKED ABOUT AND HAVE A UNDERSTANDING IT WAS A COMPREHENSIVE UPDATE LAST TIME AS I MENTIONED SO IT HAS FOUR MAJOR AREAS. THAT’S HOW I BREAK IT OUT ANYWAY AND THE STANDARDS AND PROCEDURES AND PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION AND OVERSIGHT AND OF COURSE THE FEE TAKES WHERE WE UPDATE ALL OF THE FEES. SO SHORTLY AFTER THE BILL WAS PASSED AS I MENTIONED THE ARIZONA LEAGUE PUT OUT A MODEL CITY ORDINANCE. WE FOLLOW THAT. MOST OF THE CITIES IN THE VALLEY I BELIEVE ARE USED ORDINANCE FOR DEVELOPMENT FEES. ITS INTENT WAS TO TRY TO GET THE CONSISTENCY ACROSS THE CITY AND WHEN A DEVELOPER MOVES TO WHEREVER THEY’RE WORKING WITHIN THE SAME PLAYING FIELD AND UNDERSTAND THE PROVISION AND THE ADMINISTRATION OF IT. WE’RE NOT PROMOTING ANY CHANGES TO THE PROVISIONS AS I MENTIONED BUT I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO GIVE YOU SOME CONTEXT ON THESE SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT STANDARD AND PROCEDURES THE LEGISLATIVE INTENT IS TO ENSURE WE’RE CHARGING A PROPORTIONATE CHAIR TO NEW DEVELOPMENT IN THE CITY THAT WE’RE PROCEDURES FOR HOW WE ASSESS THE FEES. THAT WE HAVE A PROCEDURE FOR ADMINISTERING THE PROGRAM SO THERE’S A NUMBER OF DEV NIGHSS IN OUR ORDINANCE AND WE ALSO HAVE THE ORDINANCE – REQUIRES THAT WE HAVE A WRITTEN REPORT. WE ADOPT AS I MENTIONED BEFORE THE LAND USE ASSUMPTIONS, THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN. IT REQUIRES THAT WE ASSESS FEES ACROSS ALL OF THE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF DEVELOPMENT AND THAT WE’RE NOT ARBITRARY IN ANY OF THAT. THAT WE KEEP THAT LEVEL. THEY’RE BASED ON THE SAME LEVEL OF SERVICE OF EXISTING RESIDENTS IN SOME CASES AND STIPULATE THAT THE CITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BURSING WAIVED FEES WHICH WE GENERALLY DON’T DO AS A RULE BUT IF THAT IS THE CASE AND WAIVE THE FEE WE HAVE TO FIND THE FUNDING TO PAY THE FEE SO WE GENERALLY DON’T DO THAT. IN ADMINISTRATION THE ORDINANCE REQUIRES SEPARATE ACCOUNTS FOR THE CATEGORIES AND úTRACK IT SEPARATELY SO IT’S NO MIXED AND ONLY GOES TO THE PROJECTED IDENTIFIED. THE FEES ARE SPENT AND COLLECTED IN THE SERVICE AREA SO THEY DON’T GO OUTSIDE OF THE BOUNDARIES AND ON THE FACILITIES THA WE IDENTIFY AND THAT WE HAVE A TIME LIMIT TO SPEND THAT BETWEEN 10 YEARS FOR SOME OF THE FEES AND 15 YEARS FOR THE UTILITY FEE, WATER AND WASTEWATER FEES. THE SECTION OUTLINES THE NUMEROUS ADOPTION PROCEDURES THAT I OUTLINED BEFORE AND THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PROVISIONS RELATED TO THE COLLECTION OF FEES SO WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE TREAT ALL úDEVELOPMENT THE SAME.A THAT WE- HAVE PROVISIONS FOR THE GRANDFATHERING OF FEES IF YOU RECALL THAT WAS A BIG PIECE ADDED INTO THE ORDINANCE THROUGH SB 1525 WHICH WAS THAT WE HAVE 24 MONTH GRANDFATHERING PERIOD SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? FOR THOSE DEVELOPING IN THE CITY CURRENTLY OR VERY SOON GOING TO BE DEVELOPING IN THEYCITY THEY GET THE BENEFIT IF YOU WILL OF THE LOWER FEE, WHETHER IT’S THE NEW OR OLD FEE FOR 24 MONTHS AT THE POINT THEY GET THE APPROVALS úSO IF SOMEBODY GOT AN APPROVAL TODAY AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO PUT THE FEES IN PLACE UNTIL OCTOBER IN PARTICULAR FEE CATEGORY THEY GET THE LESSER OF THE FEE SO IT DOES PROVIDE SOME A SURETY FOR THOSE PLANNING TO DVELOP IN THE CITY IN THE NEAR FUTURE OR ARE CURRENTLY DEVELOPING IN THE CITY. IT ALSO DEFIANCE WHAT IS ELIGIBLE FOR IMPACT FEE CREDITS. WE TALK ABOUT THAT AND THE CALCULATION AND ALLOCATION OF CREDITS ON DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS AND OURPROCESS FOR TAKENNING AN AGREEMENT AS WELL AS OUR TERMS FOR THE USE OF THOE CREDITS SO ALL OF THOSE ARECOVERED IN THERE. THERE’S PROVISIONS FOR REFUNDS OR APPEALS SO IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO APPEAL WE HAVE A PROCESS FOR THAT. IF THERE’S A REFUND THERE IS CERTAIN CRITERIA WHICH WOULD HAVE TO BE MET IN ORDER FOR A REFUND TO BE CONSIDERED, SO WE ALSO REQUIRED TO HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING ON AN AUDIT THAT WE DO SO WE HAVE A BIANNUAL AUDIT AND EVERY TWO YEARS SIMILAR TO THE AUDITING OF OUR OWN FINANCIALS THAT WE AUDIT THE IMPACT FEES AND WE DO THAT EVERY TWO YEARS. WE HAVE A – COMPLETEDADIT READY TO PUT OUT AND BRING TO COUNCIL IN NOTHER PUBLIC HEARING AND WHEN YOU GET BACK FROM YOUR BREAK. SO JUST TO MOVE FORWARD ON THAT AS I MENTIONED BEFORE THE FEES ARE WHAT WE FOCUSED ON — YOU MIGHT HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN. SORRY. SO WE HAVE A SUMMARY HERE. I HAVE TWO CATEGORIES, SINGLE FAMILY AND OFFICE AND I WANT TO POINT OUT A FEW THINGS ON THAT. IN THE PROP THAT ARE IN OSED FEESTHE COUNCIL PACKET BY THE WAY. — (PAUSED) FOR FOR SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL SO THIS IS IS SHOWING AND YOU CAN SEE IN GENERAL WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A ú1700 TO ABOUT $2,400 DIFFERENC IN FEES FROM WHERE THEY WERE IN THE 2014 STUDY SO AGAIN THAT’S BEEN FIVE YEARS, AND THAT TIME WE’VE SEEN SOME COST INCREASES, SOME CHANGES PARTICULARLY IN THIS CASE A LOT OF CHANGES ON THE WATER AND WASTEWATER SIDE IN TERMS OF THE COST TO DEVELOP ON THAT SIDE. AND THEN HERE’S JUST A SUMMARY REAL QUICK OF OFFICE AND GIVES A SENSE ON THE FEES. YOU CAN SEE IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE CITY WE’RE SEEING A FAIRLY SIZABLE REDUCTION IN THE IMPACT FEES. THAT IS PRIMARILY IN THE AREA OF TRANSPORTATION SO THIS STUDY AS WE WENT THROUGH THE STUDY AND WENT THROUGH THE ANALYSIS ON THE CALCULATION WE úDID NOTICE THAT IN THE NORTHER PORTION OF THE CITY WE’RE ACTUALLY SEEING A SLIGHT REDUCTION IN THE TRANSPORTATION FEE ACROSS THE BOARD ON ALL FEE CATEGORIES, NOT A MAJOR DEDUCTION, BUT IT’S ENOUGH THAT WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT FOR EVERY THOUSAND SQUARE FEET FOR A 10,000 SQUARE FOOT YOU TAKE IT TIMES A THOUSAND SQUARE FEET SO YOU CAN SEE THAT SOMETIMES THOSE FEES CAN GET HIGHAND IN THE PAST WE ARE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER ONES. WE HAVE A DIFFERENT CHANGE IN THE NUMBER OF PROJECTS, THE COST OF SOME OF THE PROJECTS AND ALSO SOME OF THE TRIP INFORMATION THAT COMES ALONG WITH SOME OF THE DIFFERENT USES THAT WE HAVE WHICH IS DROVE SOME OF THE FEES DOWN A LITTLE BIT, AND THEN YOU CAN SEE IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE CITY IT’S COMING UP A LITTLE BIT SO HESE ARE POINT AND TIME, RIGHT, SO A LOT OF THINGS THAT YOU SEE WHEN WE’RE CALCULATING FEES IS BASED ON THE INPUTS AT POINT AND TIME THINGS CHANGE OVER TIME. WE RECOGNIZE THAT. THIS IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR AN IMPACT FEE UPDATE, ESPECIALLY WITHIN THAT IS FIVE, FIVE AND A HALF YEARS AND LASTLY JUST TO RMIND YOU WE’RE HERE AT THE PUBLIC HEARING. WE’RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD ON AUGUST 13 WHEN YOU COME BACK FROM THE BREAK WITH THE FINAL ADOPTION OF THE FEE ORDINANCE. THAT WILL EFFECTIVELY SOLIDIFY OUR FEE ORDINANCE AND OUR FEES AND THEY BECOME EFFECTIVE ON OCTOBER 28, 2019 AND WITH THAT IF I CAN ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS OR NOT. >> THANK YOU. COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS. ALL RIGHT SEEING NONE I DECLARE THIS PUBLIC HEARING OPEN. [GAVEL] >> THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. IF THERE ANY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE YOU’RE WELCOME TO COME FORWARD AT THIS TIME. ALL RIGHT. SEEING NONE I DECLARE THIS PUBLIC HEARING CLOSED. [GAVEL] >> SO JUST TO CLARIFY TO EVERYONE WHO MIGHT BE WATCHING THE DEFINITION OF IMPACT FEES ARE THAT NEW GROWTH PAYS FOR ITS OWN IMPACTS. THAT MEANS THE ROADS THAT THEY NEED OR THE SERVICES THAT THEIR POPULATION, THAT NEW POPULATION WILL REQUIRE OF THE MUNICIPALITY IN WHICH THEY’RE GOING TO BUILD, PAYS FOR ITSELF, SO THAT CURRENT RESIDENTS DON’T HAVE TO PAY FOR NEW GROWTH. IS THIS IS A SMART GROWTH PLAN THAT OUR STATE WAS SMART TO IMPLEMENT A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. HOWEVER THERE HAVE BEEN MANY, MANY CHANGES FROM LEGISLATION IN THE LAST NUMBER OF YEARS THAT HAVE REDUCED THOSE FEES, AND MINIMIZED THE IMPACTS THAT THEY SAY NEW GROWTH CAUSES TO HAPPEN, SO THAT IS A BIG BURDEN ON THE CITY THAT IS GROWING AND WE ARE A CITY THAT IS GROWING AND SO THESE IMPACT FEES BEING LESS THAN WHAT IT ACTUALLY TAKES TO COVER THE IMPACTS OF NEW GROWTH HAS TO COME FROM THE EXISTING MUNICIPALITY, MEANING THE EXISTING RESIDENTS, SO JUST TO EXPLAIN IMPACT FEES TO ALL OF YOU AND TO EVERYONE WHO MIGHT BE WATCHING AT HOME. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THERE IS A WAY FOR GROWTH TO PAY FOR ITSELF AND I HOPE IN SUCH A GROWING STATE AS ARIZONA THERE IS A TIME WHEN WE CAN GET BACK TO SMART GROWTH. AND WITH THAT THERE IS NO COUNCIL ACTION REQUIRED THIS EVENING SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR – PRESENTATION. WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM 29R. INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT, ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY, PROJECT CITIES. MR. TYNE. >> GREAT THANK YOU MAYOR AND COUNCIL AND WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO FORMALIZE A GREAT COLLABORATION WITH ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY AND SPECIFICALLY ASU’S GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF SUSTAINABILITY AND WORK WITH US ON FIVE PROJECTS AND WE HAVE PEOPLE HERE IN CHARGE AND OF THE PROGRAM AND STEVEN RUSSELL THE PROGRAM MANAGER FROM ASU AND THEY WILL PRESENT THE PROPOSED INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.- >> THANK YOU. WELCOME. >> THANK YOU JEFF. GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL. THE ITEM BEFORE YOU NOW IS AN INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT COVERING THE PROJECT CITIES PROGRAM. WE WANT TO TAKE JUST A MOMENT TO HIGHLIGHT THIS NEW AND PROMISING PARTNERSHIP WITHIN THE CITY OF PEORIA AND ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY’S JULIE ANN WRIGLEY GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF SUSTAINABILITY. THE AGREEMENT BEFORE YOU ALLOWS TO ENTER INTO A 12-24 MONTH PARTNERSHIP TO – ENGAGE UNIVERSITY FACULTY AND STUDENTS ON SOME OF THE MOST PROMISING OPPORTUNITIES AND PROVIDE HANDS ON RESEARCH AND DELIVERABLES AND DESIN TO THE PROJECTS. ONE OF THE KEYS TO THE PARTNERSHIP IS OUR ABILITY TO GO BEYOND OUR EXISTING RESOURCES AND LEVERAGE THESE STUDENTS’ ENERGY, ENTHUSIASM AND INNOVATION TO EXPLORE AND DEVELOP APPROACHES TO COMPLEX QUESTIONS WE FACE AS A PROGRESSIVE CITY. AT THIS TIME I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE OUR MAIN PARTNERS AND MY NEW BEST FRIENDS FROM THE SUSTAINABILITY CITIES NETWORK AND PROGRAM AND ANNE RICHARD DIRECTOR AND STEVEN RUSSELL PROGRAM MANAGER. >> THANK YOU JAY AND GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL. ON BEHALF OF ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY’S SUSTAINABILITY CITIES NETWORK I WANT TO FIRST EXPRESS OUR COLLECTIVE GRATITUDE FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP THE UNIVERSITY CITY PARTNERSHIP. THE GOAL OF PROJECTS CITY PROGRAM IS TWO FOLD. FIRST WE AIM TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR RESIDENTS IN THE COMMUNITY BY BRINGING CROSS DISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION AND RESEARCH BACKED SOLUTIONS TO THESE COMPLEX MUNICIPAL SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGES. SECOND, THE PROGRAM ADDS VALUE TO THE ASU’S STUDENT LEARNING EXPERIENCE BY PROVIDING REAL WORLD APPLICATIONS FOR CHOSEN CHOSE FIELDS OF STUDY AND WAS FORMED UNDER THE JULIE ANN WRIGLEY GLOBAL INSTITUTE OF SUSTAINABILITY AND DESPITE THE BEST INTENTIONS TO BRING THE CLASSROOM INTO THE REAL WORLD FACULTY STRUGGLED TO MAINTAIN THE RELATIONSHIPS AND ADMINISTRATION NEEDED TO SUPPORT APPROPRIATELY APPLIED PROJECTS IN THE COMMUNITY, AND THAT’S WHERE THE PROJECT CITIES PROGRAM COMES IN. WE’RE PART AN INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM OF UNIVERSITIES USING A HIGH MULTI-DISCIPLINARY FRAMEWORK WHICH LEVERAGES RESOURCES AND RELATIONSHIPS ACROSS THE UNIVERSITY TO MATCH CITY PROPOSED PROJECTS WITH COMPLEMENTARY CLASSES. WE THEN- TAKE CARE OF THE LEG WORK TO SET UP THOSE PROJECTS AND PROVIDE ONGOING LOGISTICAL SUPPORT AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO ENRICH THE EXPERIENCE FOR ALL PARTIES. I AM STILL WRAPPING UP THE SCOPING AND MATCHING PROCESS BUT ASSUMING THAT ALL GOES ACCORDING TO PLAN WE ARE LOOKING TO BRING AT LEAST 150 ASU STUDENTS TO THE COMMUNITY TO RESEARCH AND PROPOSE SOLUTIONS TO WIDE RANGING MULTI-DISCIPLINARY CHALLENGES FROM WATERCONSERVATION AND PLACE MAKING AND SMART CITIES AND EMPLOYEE TRAINING MODULES. PROJECT CITIES IS MEASURING SHORT AND LONG-TERM IMPACTS OF THE STUDENT WORK ON COMMUNITIES AND I CAN PROVIDE A FEW EXAMPLES FROM OUR PAST PARTNERS THAT DEMONSTRATE THE CLEAR BENEFITS TO THE CITY RESIDENTS AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSES. – PROJECT CITY’S INAUGURAL PARTNER CITY OF APACHE JUNCTION HAD ISSUES WITH A SOLID WASTE SYSTEM AND BETWEEN MULTIPLE COMPANIES DUPLICATING ROUTES EVERYDAY AND- RESIDENTS FLAUNTING ANTI-DUMPING REGULATIONS THE CHALLENGES WERE COMPOUNDED BY ENORMOUS ENVIRONMENTAL COST IN EMISSIONS AND POLLUTION. ASU SUDENTS WITH PROJECT CITIES AND THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING PUT THEIR HEADS TOGETHER TO ASSESS THE PROBLEM AND DEVELOP A STRATEGY FOR AN RFP OVERHAUL TO THE WASTE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. THIS IS CURRENTLY IN WORK SESSIONS WITH- COUNCIL AND IS EXPECTED TO BE PROPOSED FOR FORMAL ADOPTION BY CITY COUNCIL THIS YEAR. PROJECT CITIES IS GREAT FORDUSTING OFF SHELVED PROJECTS AS WELL LIKE THIS EXAMPLE FROM APACHE JUNCTION. THE CITY HAD TO SUSPEND PLANS FOR AN OFF LEASH DOG PARK DUETO THE ECONOMIC RECESSION. THIS WAS A HIGHLY DESIRED AMENITY FOR THE CITY BUT THE PROJECT HAD TO GO ON HOLD. A NUMBER OF STUDENTS WITH THE WATTS COLLEGE OF PUBLIC SERVICE AND COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS PICKED UP THIS PROJECT IN THE FALL OF 2017. OUR STUDENT IDENTIFIED AND ANALYZED POTENTIAL SITES FOR THE PARK INCLUDING CONSIDERATIONS LIKE SERVICE AVAILABILITY AND PROJECTED COST FOR AMENITIES AND CONSTRUCTION. I AM PLESED TO SHARE THAT TONIGHT AFTER 12 YEARS SINCE IT WAS INITIALLY CONSIDERED THE CITY OF APACHE JUNCTION IS FINALLY VOTING TO APPROVE A MEASURE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH CONSTRUCTION ON ONE OF THE SITES THAT OUR STUDENTS RECOMMENDED. OUR MOST RECENT COMMUNITY PARTNER AND YOUR NEIGHBOR THE CITY OF GLENDALE FACED CHALLENGES MANAGING THE INCREASING THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE. MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC FREQUENTLY FLOODED THE PAGES WITH LESS THAN RELEVANT INFORMATION AND SOME SERIOUS INQUIRIES WERE GETTING LOST WHEN THEY SLIP THROUGH THE CRACKS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA SO ASU STUDENTS WITH THE SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION PUT THEIR HEADS TOGETHER TO THIS LAST YEAR TO DEVELOP A DRAFT SOCIAL MEDIA PLAN AND STRATEGY DOCUMENT. THIS DOCUMENT IS INTENDED TO SERVE AS A HANDBOOK FOR A NEW SOCIAL MEDIA POSITION THAT THE CITY IS HIRING FOR. AND TO BE CLEAR THE PROGRAM IS A WIN-WIN. IT’S A HUGE BENEFIT FOR THE STUDENTS AS WELL SO THE MAJORITY OF OUR STUDENTS CONSISTENTLY REPORT THEIR APPLIED PROJECT MADE CLASSROOM CONCEPTS EASIER TO GRASP AND A MEANFUL OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE PROFESSIONAL CONTACTS. IN A RECENT SURVIVE STUDENTS IN THE SPRING SEMESTER 92% REPORTED THAT THEY APPLIED PROJECT MADE THE CLASS MORE INTERESTING AND ENGAGING. NOTABLY 84% INDICATED THEIR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT INCREASED THEIR DETERMINATION TO PURSUE SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGES IN THEIR OWN COMMUNICATES. WE HAVE TO EXTEND OUR GRATITUDE TO JAY DAVIS AND HIS AMAZING TEAM FOR THEIR WORK TO FORMULATE THE PROJECT CITIES PEORIA PARTNERSHIP AND WE HAVE TO THANK LISA ESTRADA WHO SPEARHEADED THE PEORIA STRONG PROGRAM APPLICATION AND KICK STARTED THIS PROCESS. WE STILL HAVE A LOT TO DO AND IN FACT WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED BUT WITH THIS úAMAZING TEAM THAT WE BUILT AND SOME OF THE EXCITING PROJECTS THAT WE SCOPED OUT TOGETHER WE’RE SETTING OURSELVES UP FOR A REALLY INSPIRING ACADEMIC YEAR. WITH YOUR APPROVAL TONIGHT WE LOOK FORWARD TO FORMALLY ADVANCING THIS COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP AND WORKIG TOGETHER WITH YOUR TEAM TO MAKE COOL THINGS HAPPEN FOR THE CITY OF PEORIA. THANK YOU. >> THNK YOU STEVE. SO AS MENTIONED SOME MATCHES HAVE BEEN MADE INCLUDING FACULTY WITH UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE LEVEL STUDENTS AND BECAUSE OF THIS – WE’RE TRYING TO MAINTAIN FLEXIBILITY AS WE DEFINE SCOPE OF WORK AND ON THE SCREEN YOU CAN SEE MANY OF THE PROPOSED PROJECTS MENTIONED AS WELL AS THE LIVABILITY GOALS THEY ALIGN WITH AND WE’RE HAPPY TO INTEREST QUESTIONS QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS ú INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT. >> THANK YOU. COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS? SO THE PROJECTS ON YOUR SCENE HERE ARE THOSE OUR — ARE THOSE GOING TO BE OUR PROJECTS? >> MAYOR, AND COUNCIL YES. THE PROJECTS THERE WERE THE ONES WE PROPOSED IN THE ORIGINAL REQUEST TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE PROGRAM. AGAIN AS WE’RE WORKING WITH STEVE ON THE SCOPS OF WORK WE’RE MAKING SOME ADJUSTMENTS BUT BY IN LARGE THOSE ARE THE PROJECTS WE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH. >> THESE ARE ALL REALLY GREAT PROJECTS THAT WILL MAKE OUR CITY BETTER AND I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE KNOWING THAT YOU GUYS ARE GOING BE PUTTING SO MUCH BRAIN POWER INTO THIS. CAN YOU TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT SMART CITY TECHNOLOGY AND WHAT WAY YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE THAT FOR THE CITY OF PEORIA. >> SURE. I CAN TAKE THAT SO THE APPROACH IS TO IDENTIFY A NUMBER OF BUCKETS OF TECHNOLOGY AND THEY’RE AREAS WHERE NEW TECHNOLOGY IS GOING TO INTERFACE BETWEEN THE MUNICIPALITY AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR, AND THE STUDENTS ARE GOING TO KIND OF ADDRESS WHAT THE CURRENT STATE OF THAT TECHNOLOGY OR GROUP OF TECHNOLOGIES MIGHT BE. FOR EXAMPLE, WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY, ANTONYMOUS VEHICLES MAY COME INTO IT. THESE ARE SOME OF THE TOPICS WE WILL HAMMER OUT TOGETHER AND WORK WITH RICK BUSS AS WELL TO HAMMER OUT AND THE STUDENTS WILL ASSESS THE CURRENT CONDITIONS AND IDENTIFY SOME OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE. >> WOW THAT’S REALLY GREAT. IT’S GOING TO BE HELP US BE CUTTING EDGE AND MAKE SURE THAT WE MOVE INTO THE FUTURE SEAMLESSLY SO WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THE WORK YOU’RE ABOUT TO DO AND SO LET’S SEE. NO OTHER QUESTIONS FROM COUNCIL, DISCUSSION? THEN I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION. >> I WILL MOTION. >> SECOND. >> A MOTION AND A SECOND. COUNCIL PLEASE VOTE, AND IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. >> ALL RIGHT. WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM 30R, CONTRACT AMES CONSTRUCTION, HAPPY VALLEY PARKWAY, LAKE PLEASANT PARKWAY TO LOOP 303 IMPROVEMENTS. MR. TYNE. >> GREAT THANK YOU AND DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING DIRECTOR ADINA HUNDRED WILL PRESENT A CONTRACT WITH AMES CONSTRUCTION FOR THE HAPPY VALLEY PARKWAY IMPROVEMENTS BETWEEN LAKE PLEASANT PARKWAY AND LOOP 303. >> GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL. I AM HAPPY TO BE HERE TONIGHT TO FINALLY AWARD THE — [OFF MIC] SO THIS IS ITEM 30R ON YOUR AGENDA. LET’S GO OVER THE PROJECT BRIEFLY. THE HAPPY VALLEY PARKWAY PROJECT EXTENDS FROM LAKE PLEASANT PARKWAY TO THE LOOP 303. WE WILL BE PROVIDING THREE LANES IN EACH DIRECTION FROM LAKE PLEASANT TO LOOP 303 AND I MOST LOCATIONS RIGHT NOW THERE ARE TWO LANES. WE WILL IMPROVE THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL AT 115TH AVENUE AND CURRENTLY IN THE COUNTY AND TENDS TO BACK UP QUITE A BIT. WE WILL EXTEND THE LEFT TURN POCKET AND TRANSFERRING THAT INTO PEORIA EQUIPMENT SO WE CAN TIME THAT SIGNAL WITH THE OTHER SIGNALS IN PEORIA. THE SIGNAL AT 100TH LANE WHICH SERVICES THE CHILLIES AND THE SPROUTS WILL EXTEND TO THE SOUTH TO TARGET THE SHOPPING CENTER PROVIDING LEFT TURN OUTS FOR THOSE HEADED TOWARDS LOOP 303. WE WILL ADD LANDSCAPE MEDIANS, AND CURB AND GUTTER AND SIDEWALK AND AS YOU CAN SEE THE YELLOW PART IS THE PART THAT IS CURRENTLY WITHIN THE COUNTY. THE BLUE PART IS CURRENTLY WITHIN PEORIA. WE HAVE A CURRENT IGA THAT YOU APPROVED PREVIOUSLY WITH THE COUNTY. THEY’RE CONTRIBUTING 5 MILLION TOWARDS THE PROJECT AND WE’LL ANNEX THAT SECTION INTO PEORIA. I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE BRIDGE IMPROVEMENTS. IF YOU DRIVE THE BRIDGE TODAY IT’S TWO LANES IN EACH DIRECTION WITH BIKE LANES WITH A YELLOW CENTER LINE THAT DIVIDES TRAFFIC. WE WILL HAVE THREE LANES IN EACH DIRECTION WITH THE MEDIAN BARRIER SEPARATING TRAFFIC. WE WILL ALSO FOR THE FIRST TIME HAVE A 12-FOOT MULTI-USE PATH BEHIND THE BARRIERS. THIS WILL SERVE BOTH PEDESTRIANS AND THE BICYCLES AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IT’S WIDE ENOUGH FOR A STREET SWEEPER. ONE OF THE MANY COMPLAINTS WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWEEP THE PATHWAY TO MAKE IT SAFE FOR ALL. WE WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE ESTHETICS FOR OUR BRIDGES. WE HAVE DONE PREVIOUSLY AND LEE HAVE A NICE JOB FOR ART ON THE BRIDGES AS WELL. FOR THIS PROCESS WE WENT THROUGH THE LOW BID PROCESS. AS YOU KNOW PRICES HAVE BEEN INCREASING AND WE’VE INTENDED THIS TO BE A LOW BID PROJECT. BASED ON THE SIZE WE HAVE MANY CONTRACTORS IN THE AREA THAT WOULD BE PERFECT FOR THE PROJECT. WE WENT OUT TO BID IN APRIL. WE HAD EXTEND THE DEADLINE A COUPLE OF TIMES BECAUSE THEY ASKED GOOD QUESTIONS AND WE HAD TO PROVIDE CLARIFICATION. WE ENDED UP WITH NINE CONTRACTORS WELL KNOWN BIDDING ON THE PROJECT AND RANGED FROM 19.4 MILLION TO 23.5 MILLION WHICH IS QUITE A RANGE. THREE OF THE LOWEST BIDS WERE BELOW 20 MILLION SO WE FEEL – THAT THE BID IS ON THE MARK. WE DON’T LIKE TO LEAVE TOO MANY MONEY ON THE TABLE BECAUSE THEN WE OBVIOUSLY MISS SOMETHING. CONTINGENCY FOR LOW BID PROJECTS TYPICALLY IS 10%. FOR THIS PROJECT BECAUSE THE 19.4 MILLION AND THE BUDGET IS WE’RE ASKING FOR A 5% CONTINGENCY SO THAT WILL BE A MILLION DOLLARS. WE TEND TO RUN BETWEEN THREE AND 5% WITH CONTINGENCYS ON THE LOW BID PROJECTS. IF FOR SOME REASON WE NEED MORE I NEED TO COME BACK AND EXPLAIN OURSELVES. WE WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WENT WRONG AND WHAT WE ANTICIPATE HANG. THE PROJECT LOW BIDDER IS AMES CONSTRUCTION. PAST PROJECTS THEY HAVE DONE IN PEORIA YOU’RE FAMILIAR WITH. THE LAKE PLEASANT PARKWAY FROM WEST WING TO LOOP 303, AND THE BEAUTIFUL PICTURE OF THIS BRIDGE WHICH IS THE HAPPY VALLEY BRIDGE OVER NEW RIVER. THEY DID THAT PROJECT AS WELL SO THEY’RE VERY FAMILIAR WITH OUR ESTHETIC REQUIREMENTS AND THEY SHOULD DO US PROUD. THE NEXT MOST IMPORTANT PIECE IS THE SCHEDULE. WE ANTICIPATE BEGINNING CONSTRUCTION AUGUST 2019 AND COMPLETING IN FALL OF 2020. THE ART COMPONENT ON THE BRIDGE WILL BE INSTALLED AT THE VERY END OF THE PROJECT WITH A SEPARATE CONTRACT. WE KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF TRAFFIC IN THE AREA AND PROVISIONS THAT TALK NOT WORKING IN FRONT OF THE COMMERCIALNESSES BETWEEN NECESSARY AND NEW YEARS AND NOT IMPACT TRAFFIC DURING THE RUSH HOUR THAT’S BEEN LAID OUT AND THEY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE GETTING INTO AND THEY’RE FAMILIAR WITH THIS PART OF TOWN. SO TONIGHT WE ARE ASKING FOR YOU TO AWARD THE CONTRACT TO AMES CONSTRUCTION, APPROVE THE CONTINGENCY AMOUNT OF $1 MILLION WHICH IS APPROXIMATELY 5 PERCENT OF THE CONTRACT AND AUTHORIZE A BUDGET AMENDMENT FOR THAT $1 MILLION THAT COMES FROM TRANSPORTATION SALES TAX FUND. THAT IS WHENEVER WE HAVE SAVINGS IN THE PROJECT IT GOES BACK INTO – THAT FUND SO IF WE DON’T SPEND ALL OF THE CONTINGENCY IT WILL BE RETURNED BACK TO THAT FUND AT THE END. DO I HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME? >> THANK YOU. COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? VICE MAYOR. >> THAN YOU MAYOR. THANK YOU A DIN A I WANT TO THANK YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE TEAM FOR EVERYTHING THAT’S GONE IN, ALL THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE DONE FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME. >> . >> WHICH I DON’T REMEMBER WHEN THAT WAS. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE SO EXCITED ABOUT A BRIDGE, BUT I REALLY AM BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE SUCH A TREMENDOUS IMPROVEMENT TO THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC AND GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE VISTANCIA COMMUNITY IN THE MESQUITE DISTRICT SO AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THIS TRULY WAS A LOT OF WORK AND COMMUNICATION AND OUTREACH WITH THE COMMUNITY, AND A LOT OF FOLKS CAME TO PUBLIC MEETINGS AND WEIGHED IN ON WHAT THEY NEEDED AND THAT REALLY CONTRIBUTED TO THIS AMAZING DESIGN THEY THINK IS JUST FANTASTIC, SO I HOPE YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE SOME OF THIS MONEY BACK IF NOT ALL OF IT, BUT I ABSOLUTELY SUPPORT THIS AND I HOPE THE REST OF THE COUNCIL WILL TOO. THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> THANK YOU. I AM EXPECTING WE WILL HAVE A BRIDGE PROCLAMATION ONE MONTH. >> THERE WE GO. IS THAT A MOTION VICE MAYOR? >> SO MOVED. THANK YOU. >> SECOND. >> A MOTION AND A SECOND. COUNCIL ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? ALL RIGHT. SEEING NONE PLEASE VOTE, AND IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. ITEM – NUMBER 31R IS PENSION FUNDING POLICY, ACCEPT THE ACTUARIAL REPORT PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL RETIREMENT SYSTEM: MR. TYNE. >> THANK YOU MAYOR AND THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER SONIA ANDREWS WILL PRESENT A PENSION FUNDING POLICY FOR THE CITY’S PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL RETIREMENT SYSTEM AND I WILL – PASS IT OVER TO MS. ANDREWS. >> GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL. I HAVE TO ADMIT I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH THIS PRESENTATION A LITTLE BIT. IT’S A LITTLE BIT COMPLICATED TO EXPLAIN SO BEAR WITH ME AS I GO THROUGH THE SLIDES. OKAY. SO TONIGHT THE ITEM IS THE PENSION FUNDING POLICY PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL RETIREMENT SYSTEM SO WHY DO WE HAVE THIS POLICY ON THE AGENDA TONIGHT? IT’S REQUIRED BY HOUSE BILL AND ADOPTED BY JULY 1 BUT EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT IT DEMONSTRATES PRUDENT FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT ON OUR PART TO A PENSION FUNDING POLICY SO YOU MUST BE ASKING WHAT IS HOUSE BILL 97 AND WHY ARE WE ACQUIRED TO ADOPT A PENSION FUNDING POLICY? SO FIRST OF ALL THE BILL WAS INTRODUCED IN 2018 AND SIGNED INTO ARIZONA LAW. IS IT REQUIRES ALL EMPLOYERS OF PSPRS SYSTEM TO ADOPT ANNUALLY PENSION FUNDING POLICY. THAT MEANS I AM COMING BACK TO YOU EVERY YEAR TO ADOPT A PENSION FUNDING POLICY. IN ADDITION HOUSE BILL 2097 ALSO SPECIFICALLY REQUIRES THE POLICY TO ADDRESS THESE ITEMS LISTED IN BULLET POINTS HERE. THE POLICY NEEDS TO STATE THAT WE WILL MAKE SURE WE HAVE ADEQUATE ASSETS TO FUND BENEFITS OF THE PLAN. WE WILL ALSO MAINTAIN STABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE PLAN. WE’LL ALSO COMMIT TO MEETING A FUNDING REQUIREMENT AND IT ALSO REQUIRES US TO DEFINE A FUNDING- RATIO OF FUNDING STATUS WHICH I WILL EXPLAIN LATER, AND WE WILL ALSO ACCEPT THE ACTUARIAL VALUATION REPORT EVERY YEAR. HOPEFULLY AS I GO THROUGH THE REST OF THE SLIDES THIS WILL ALL MAKE SENSE. SO LET ME START BY- GIVING YOU A LITTLE BACKGROUND ON OUR PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL RETIREMENT SYSTEM WHICH WE CALL PSPRS. PSPRS IS A STATE WIDE RETIREMENT PROGRAM FOR PUBLIC SAFETY, AND EVEN THOUGH IT’S A STATE WIDE PROGRAM SEPARATE ACCOUNTS ARE MAINTAINED FOR EACH EMPLOYER, AND SEPARATE ACCOUNTS ARE MAINTAINED FOR POLICE AND FIRE, AND THE STATE PROVIDES UNIFORM ADMINISTRATION OF ALL THESE SEPARATE ACCOUNTS, AND ALL THE PLAN ASSETS ARE PULLED FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES. THIS IS JUST BACKGROUND INFORMATION. NOW, THE REASON WE ARE HERE TONIGHT REQUIRING US TO ADOPT A PENSION FUNDING POLICY IS BECAUSE PSPRS FACED SOME CHALLENGES LIKE MOST STATE RETIREMENT SYSTEMS SO STARTING IN 2001 PSPRS EXPERIENCED – INVESTMENT LOSSES WITH THE.COM BUBBLE AND THE GREAT RECESSION. THERE HAVE BEEN SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT LOSSES. THEN THERE’S OUT DATED ACTUARIAL ASSUMPTIONS. >>>>AND THERE WASN’T SUFFICIENT ASSETS TO FUND THE BENEFIT INCREASES SO THESE ARE CHALLENGES FACED BY MANY STATE RETIREMENT SYSTEMS AND AS A RESULT OF THESE CHALLENGES OUR PSPRS SYSTEM FACED A DECLINING FUNDED STATUS OR FUNDED RATIO, SO LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT A FUNDED STATUS, A FUNDED RATIO IS. A FUNDED RATIO IS A PERCENT THAT MEASURES THE FUNDED — HOW WELL A PLAN IS FUNDED SO IF YOUR PLAN ASSETS EQUAL YOUR PLAN LIABILITIES THAT MEANS YOU HAVE ENOUGH ASSETS TO PAY FOR THE LIABILITIES SO YOU’RE 100% FUNDED. IF YOU DON’T HAVE ENOUGH ASSETS TO PAY THE LIABILITIES OR OBLIGATIONS THAT MEANS YOU HAVE LESS ASSETS THAN LIABILITIES. THAT MEANS YOU’RE LESS 100% FUNDED AND VICE VERSA. IF YOU HAVE MORE ASSETS TO PAY THE LIABILITIES THEN YOU’RE MORE THAN 100% FUNDED. WELL CLEARLY HAVING A HIGHER PERCENT FUNDED THAN A LOWER PERCENT FUNDED AND SO AS A RESULT OF THESE CHALLENGES PSPRS HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING A DECLINING FUNDED STATUS OF FUDED RATIO, SO THE GOOD NEWS HERE IS EVEN THOUH WE HAVE A DECLINE — A LOW FUNDED STATUS WHICH I WILL SHARE YOU GUYS LATER WHAT THE FUNDED STATUS IS — THERE’S GOOD NEWS AND THE GOOD NEWS IS EFFORTS HAVE BEEN MADE AND AS A RESULT OF THESE EFFORTS AND ALSO — I’M SORRY — THE PENSION POLICY WE’RE PROPOSING IT’S GOING TO PUT US ON A PATH TO A HEALTHY FUNDED STATUS AND CORRECT SOME OF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE’RE FACED. SO I COVERED A LOT JUST IN THESE SLIDES SO BEFORE I MOVE ON ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? >> COUNCIL? NOPE. YOU DID A GREAT JOB. >> OKAY GOOD. OKAY. SO LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT THE FUNDED STATUS OF FUNDED RATIO IS FOR THE PSPRS PLAN. AS I SAID EARLIER THE SEPARATE ACCOUNTS FOR EACH EMPLOYER AND FOR POLICE AND FIRE AS WELL SO THE BLUE BARS THAT YOU SEE HERE ARE THE FUNDED STATUS FOR THE POLICE – PLAN FOR PEORIA ON PIER CITIES. CAN YOU SEE THAT THE FUNDED STATUS IS 52%. WHAT THAT MEANS IS OUR ASSETS IN THE PLAN ARE ONLY ABLE TO FUND 52% OF OUR LIABILITIES IN THAT PLAN. THE FIRE PLAN IS A LITTLE BETTER FUNDED. IT’S AT 66% SO AGAIN ALTHOUGH THESE FUNDING LEVELS ARE NOT IDEAL THE MORE IMPORTANT THING HERE OR THE MORE IMPORTANT POINT HERE WE WANT TO MAKE WE’RE ADDRESSING THIS. EFFORTS HAVE BEEN MADE AND WE HAVE A PLAN TO MOVE FORWARD TO IMPROVE THESE FUNDED LEVELS, SO WHAT EFFORTS HAVE BEEN MADE? WELL FIRST OF ALL AT THE STATE WIDE LEVEL THERE HAS BEEN UPDATES AND MODIFICATIONS TO ACTUARIAL ASSUMPTIONS. THERE’S BEEN ALSO- PENSION REFORM THAT’S BEEN INTRODUCED. SENATE BILL 1428 WHICH INTRODUCED A NEW TIER OF BENEFITS FOR NEW EMPLOYEES AND ALSO PROP 24 THAT INTRODUCED A COLA AS OPPOSED TO A BENEFIT INCREASES, SO THESE PENSION REFORMS WILL HELP REDUCE THE LIABILITY, AND THEN OF COURSE HOUSE BILL 97 WAS INTRODUCED TO REQUIRE ALL EMPLOYERS TO ADOPT A FUNDING POLICY IN AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE FUNDING RATIO. LET ME SEE. SO THESE EFFORTS IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO SEE THE RESULTS OF THESE EFFORTS BUT WITH THESE EFFORTS AND THE FUNDING POLICY THAT WE WILL ADOPT IT DOES PUT US ON A PATH TO A HEALTHIER FUNDED STATUS FOR OUR PSPRS, SO WHAT EXACTLY — SO THIS JUST REITERATES KIND OF THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE HOUSE BILL,- THE BULLET POINTS WE’RE TO úADDRESS IN OUR POLICY SO WHAT DOES OUR PROPOSED POLICY ACTUALLY SAY? SO THE PROPOSED POLICY WE ARE COMMITTING TO úCONTRIBUTE THE FULL ANNUAL REQUIRED CONTRIBUTION WHICH WE CALL ARC AND WHAT THE ARC IS THE ACTUARIALLY CALCULATED CONTRIBUTION THAT WE’RE REQUIRED TO MAKE BASED ON THE FUNDING TARGET THAT WE SET, AND THE FUNDING TARGET THAT WE SET IS 100% FUNDING BY 2036 SO WITHIN 18 YEARS WE WOULD LIKE TO ACHIEVE A 100% FUNDING FOR OUR PLANNING FOR BOTH THE POLICE AND THE FIRE SO THE ARC IS CALCULATED AS A PERCENT OF PAYROLL TO ACHIEVE THIS 100% TARGET. OUR POLICY ALSO COMMITS US TO LOOK FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING TO MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS ABOVE THE ARC IF OUR BUDGET ALLOWS SO IF WE’RE ABLE TO DO THAT THEN WE WILL BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE 100% BEFORE 2036. OKAY. SO WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE GRAPHICALLY IS THAT FOR THE POLICE PLAN OUR CURRENT ESTIMATED ARC OR REQUIRED CONTRIBUTION IS 43% OF PAYROLL, AND BY COMMITTING TO MAINTAINING THE 43% OF PAYROLL OUR FUNDED STATUS SHOULD IMPROVE EVERY SINGLE YEAR SO THAT BY 2036 IT SHOULD REACH 100%, AND OUR FIVE YEAR BUDGET FORECAST HAS ALREADY TAKEN THIS INTO ACCOUNT SO BY ADOPTING THIS POLICY WE WON’T HAVE TO MAKE ANY BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS AT THI TIME. LIKEWISE FOR THE FIRE PLAN SINCE THE FIRE PLAN IS SLIGHTLY BETTER FUNDED THE ANNUAL REQUIRED CONTRIBUTION IS 34% OF PAYROLL AND AGAIN OUR POLICY COMMITS US TO MAINTAINING THIS CONTRIBUTION IN ORDER TO IMPROVE THE FUNDED – STATUS EACH YEAR AND REACH THE 100% FUNDED STATUS BY 2036, SO BASICALLY OUR POLICY BY COMMITTING TO MAINTAINING THE ACTUARIALLY REQUIRED CONTRIBUTIONS, DEFINING THE TARGET OF 100% BY 2036, COMMITTING TO THESEFUNDING REQUIREMENTS WE ARE MEETING THE REQUIREMENTS OF HOUSE BILL 97 úWHICH IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE ADEQUATE ASSETS, MAINTAIN STABLE CONTRIBUTIONS, MEET OUR FUNDING REQUIREMENTS AND ACHIEVE A FUNDING TARGET, SO TO SUMMARIZE ALL THESE COMPLICATED SLIDES THE KEY TAKE AWAY IS IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO RECOGNIZE THAT WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO FUND OUR RETIREMENT PLANS FIRST OF ALL AND SECOND OF ALL IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE PSPRS REQUIRES SOME FUNDING COMMITMENT TO PUT US ON THE RIGHT PATH SO TO MORE HEALTHY FUNDED STATUS SO THE POLICY THAT WE’RE PROPOSING BEFORE YOU TONIGHT MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF HOUSE BILL 2097. IT SHOWS OUR COMMITMENT TO IMPROVING THE FUNDED STATUS FOR PSPRS FOR BOTH POLICE AND FIRE, AND BY DOING SO ADOPTING THIS PENSION FUNDING POLICY WE ALSO GIVE ASSURANCE TO THE BOND RATING AGENCIES AND OUR EMPLOYEES OF OUR COMMITMENT TO FUND THE PLAN AND AGAIN IT – DOESN’T CHANGE OUR BUDGET FORECAST AT THIS TIME SO WE DON’T HAVE TO MAKE ANY BUDGET úADJUSTMENTS FOR ADOPTING THIS POLICY SO I THINK THAT’S IT. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS –>> COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS? I HAVE ONE QUESTION. YOU SAY WE HAVE TO APPROVE THIS SAME POLICY EVERY YEAR? >> CORRECT. BECAUSE THE FUNDING LEVEL CHANGES EVERY YEAR AS THE ACTARIAL CALCULATIONS CHANGE AND SO THE REQUIREMENT IS TO ADOPTTHE ANNUAL ACTUARIAL CALCULATION WITH THE FUNDING ARC THAT THEY CALCULATE FOR US. THAT’S WHY THE POLICY WILL BE BROUGHT TO YOU EVERY YEAR. >> THE PERCENT OF PAYROLL. >> THE PERCENT OF PAYROLL AND THE NEW ACTUARIAL VALUATION. >> UNDERSTOOD. THANK YOU FOR THAT. COUNCIL DO I HAVE A MOTION? >> I WILL MAKE A MOTION. >> SECOND. >> WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. COUNCIL PLEASE VOTE. IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. GOOD FOR ANOTHER YEAR. THANK YOU. OKAY. WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO ITEM 32R, EXPENDITURE AUTHORITY, CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT, LED STREETLIGHT CONVERSION PROJECT. MR. TYNE. >> GREAT THANK YOU ND DEPUTY CITY MANAGER ERIC STRUNG DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS AND RHONDA HUMBLE AND JANET RAMSEY WILL PRESENT A PROPOSAL FOR YOUR APPROVAL ON THE INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT OF SELECTED STREET LIGHTS TO MORE EFFICIENT LED FIXTURES. >> THANK YOU MR. TYNE. MAYOR AND COUNCIL I GET TO PLAY THE ROLE OF KEVIN BURKE. I AM NOT WEARING A BOW TIE AND I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT AND I WILL WORK ON THAT FOR NEXT TIME BUT QUICKLY THIS IS TO APPROVE THE EXPENDITURES IN THE CIP IN THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT TO SYSTEMATICALLY CONVERT SOME OF THE LOW SODIUM PRESSURE LIGHTING INTO LIGHT EMITTING DIODE, LED LIGHTING. AS JEFF MENTIONED RHONDA IS OUR DEPUTY DIRECTOR WILL WALK YOU THROUGH SOME OF THE SLIDES HERE AND JANET RAMSEY OUR MANAGER OF THE STREETS DIVISION IS OUR CONTENT EXPERT SO IF YOUHAVE QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO ASK THEM AND THIS IS A REALLY GOOD EXAMPLE REAL QUICKLY OF EARLIER YOU APPROVED AN AGREEMENT WITH ASU FOR A LOT OF SUSTAINABILITY RELATED ITEMS. THIS KIND OF COMES FROM THAT ILK. YOU WILL HEAR THIS WILL RESULT IN ENERGY SAVINGS. IT’S SMARTER, CLEANER, BETTER SO WITH THAT I WILL TURN IT OVER TO RHONDA. >> THANK YOU. OKAY. GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND COUNCIL. I DO HAVE A SHORT PRESENTATION ON THE LED STREETLIGHT CONVERSION PROJECT PROGRAM AND NO PUN INTENDED I HOPE TO SHED SOME LIGHT ON IT AND — [OFF MIC]. LOW DENSITY RESIDENTIAL. LOW. >> . >> (LOW AUDIO). [OFF MIC] COMPREHENSIVE AUDIT ON THE CITY’S 16,150 POLES TO IDENTIFY AND VERIFY THE LOCATION AND ASSET NUMBERS, POWER SOURCE AND SUPPLIER INFORMATION WHETHER IT WAS [INAUDIBLE]. THIS INFORMATION WAS USED TO RECONCILE OUR DATA BASE AND UPDATE OUR GIS. THE AUDIT PROVIDED COST ESTIMATES BASED ON A COUPLE CONVERSION OPPOSITES. STAFF MET WITH LEADERSHIP TO DETERMINE PRIORITIES ON FUNDING. [OFF MIC] ARTERIALS ARE THE MAIN ROADS AND THUNDERBIRD OR 75TH AND 83RD AVENUE AS AN EXAMPLE AND ABOUT 1200 COLLECTOR STREET LIGHTS. COLLECTORS ARE THE MIDSIZE ROADS AND BETWEEN MAIN STREETS AND SWEETWATER, 87TH AVENUE SO WHY LEDS? WE TEND TO THINK A PICTURE SPEAKS A THOUSAND WORD SO IF YOU LOOK AT – THE PICTURE ON THE SCREEN THE LED LIGHT IS GENERALLY CLEARER AND BRIDER. IF YOU LOOK AT THE PICTURE THE DEMONSTRATION ON THE LEFT IS AN LED STREET LINE CONVERSION. IF YOU NOTICE IT HAS A CRISP DOWNWARD FOCUSED ILLUMINATION ON THE ROAD AND THE TWO HIGH PRESSURE SODIUM LIGHT TO THE RIGHT ARE FUZZY, SCATTERED YELLOW LIGHTS. THERE ARE ADDITIONAL BENEFITS SUCH AS LONGER LIFE SPAN. THE LEDS TENDS TO BE 10 YEARS AND THE OTHER ONES LAST ABOUT SEVEN YEARS ON AVERAGE AND THERE’S SAVINGS. AUDIT ESTIMATED ANNUAL SAVINGS OF ABOUT $200,000 AND KEEPING WITH RESIDENTIAL INTEREST TO MINIMIZE LIGHT POLLUTION THE LIGHTS ARE THE INTERNATIONAL — [INAUDIBLE] [OFF MIC]. LEDS ARE NOT NEW TO PEORIA. THEY ARE IN CURRENT USE. WE HAVE 123 TRAFFIC SIGNALS ALL LIGHTED STREET SIGNS – AND SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS ARE LED. THIS IS AN ADDITION TO THE 475 STAFF INSTALLED STREET LIGHTS THAT THE STREET OPERATIONS HAVE BEEN PHASING IN THROUGH THE POLE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM. AS MENTONED EARLIER THE AUDIT PROVIDED NEEDED VERIFICATION AND AUTOMOBILE INFORMATION, INFORMATION THAT THE STREET OPERATIONS STAFF THEN PARTNERED WITH THE IT DEPARTMENT FOR A WEB PAGE FOR RESIDENTS TO REPORT BROKEN OR NON FUNCTIONING LIGHTS. THIS IS A SCREEN LIGHT OF THE WEB PAGE THAT ALLOWS RES NOT DIDS TO IDENTIFY AND REPORT ISSUES DIRECTLY TO THE STREETS DIVISION. >> . >> IT ALSO PROVIDES APS AND SRP INFORMATION FOR OUTAGES. IN CONCLUSION IF APPROVED STAFF WOULD MOVE FORWARD WITH THE CONTRACT TO CONVERT 3250 ARTERIAL STREET LIGHTS AND ABOUT 1200 COLLECTOR STREET LIGHTS. THE COLLECTOR LED CONVERSION WOULD BE BASED ON A PRIORITIZATION OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA. TRAFFIC VOLUMES, PROXIMITY TO SCHOOLS AND PARKS AND BIKE LANES. A COUPLE ADDITIONAL BENEFITS NOT MENTIONED EARLIER INCLUDE A 10 YEAR OFFSET AND 10 YEAR WARRANTY ON THE STREETLIGHT FIXTURES. IF APPROVED IT WOULD START WITH THE ARTERIALS IN THE SEPTEMBER TIMEFRAME FOLLOWED BY THE COLLECTORS AND WITH THAT WE WILL TAKE YOUR QUESTIONS. >> THANK YOU. COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS? VICE MAYOR. >> IF YOU SAID THIS I AM SORRY BUT WHAT IS THE ESTIMATED TIMEFRAME UNTIL THEY’RE ALL CHANGED OUT? >> THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE A JANET QUESTION BECAUSE SHE’S BEEN DIRECTLY WORKING WITH THE CONTACT. >> [OFF MIC] DIFFERENTLY THAN WE ANTICIPATED SO WE THINK THIS WILL PROBABLY TAKE SOMEWHERE AROUND SIX MONTHS TO NINE MONTHS TO COMPLETE AND THEN WE’LL MOVE INTO THE COLLECTOR SO WITHIN THE FY’ 20FISCAL YEAR BUT I DON’T HAVE AN EXACT DATE FOR YOU AT THIS TIME. >> THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THAT. 16,000 ALL TOGETHER. UNBELIEVABLE. THANK YOU. >> COUNCILMEMBER DUNN. >> I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT ON THE POLES WHAT IS A DESCRIPTION OR MAYBE SOME OF THE WARE THAT WOULD DICTATE REPLACING A POLE? CAN YOU GIVE US SOME IDEA OF WHY A POLE WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED? >> YES COUNCILMEMBER DUNN TYPICALLY THAT’S GOING TO BE RUST AND OTHER EFFECTS THAT MIGHT AFFECT THE OVERALL STRENGTH AND STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE POLES AND THE AREAS WHERE SPRINKLERS HAVE ATTACKED AND YOU SEE RUST AT THE BASE THEY’RE THE PRIORITIES. WE ALSO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE DATE OF THE INSTALLATION SO WE HAVE THAT RECORD AND WE START LOOKING AT THOSE FIRST AND THEN WE DO THE INSPECTIONS AND THE RESULTS OF THOSE WILL DICTATE WHERE WE BEGIN. >> THE OTHER QUESTION THAT I HAVE IS WITH THE BULBS OR LIGHTS THAT YOU’RE REPLACING, THE WASTE, WHAT DO WE DO WITH THAT AND IS THERE A SUBSTANTIAL COST TO GETTING THOSE DISPOSE SAID OF? >> WITH THE HIGH PRESSURE – SODIUM WE ARE RECYCLING THOSE TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE AND SO THERE’S MINIMAL IF ANY COST ASSOCIATED WITH THAT AT ALL AND THAT IS A PART OF THIS PROCESS. WE RECYCLE ALL OF THE WASTE MATERIALS. >> THAT’S FANTASTIC. THANK YOU. >> COUNCILMEMBER FINN. >> THANK YOU. JUST ONE QUICK QUESTION. THIS IS KIND OF BEING PRESENTED AS A NET NEUTRAL PROCESSION, FINANCIALLY AND PAY BACK IS 10 YEARS AND WHEN WE REPLACE THOSE ARE THERE EXPENSES I THINK 1.6 MILLION — EXPENSES ASSOCIATED TO RETROFIT FOR THE LED CHEAPER TO REPLACE THEM OR ANOTHER $1.6 MILLION TO INVEST IN 10 YEARS AND GO ON. I THINK 10 YEARS IS SHORT FOR ME AND I HEAR THEY LAST LONGER AND IS THAT AN CONSERVATIVE APPROACH TO THIS OR TYPICAL 10 YEARS ON AN LED? >> SO MAYOR, COUNCILMEMBER FINN THE 10 YEAR TIMEFRAME IS THE WARRANTY THAT THE MANUFACTURERS HAS GUARANTEED US THE PRODUCT ITSELF. THE ACTUAL DURATION, THE LIGHT BULB THAT’S MORE OF A JANET QUESTION. JANET IS THE LIGHT ITSELF LAST FOR 10 YEARS OR PERIODIOTALLY GET OUT THERE AND CHANGE THE LIGHTS? >> THAT’S A GOOD QUESTION. WE DON’T HAVE THAT HISTORY. THE TECHNOLOGY IS TOO NEW AND THE 10 YEAR WARRANTY IS IN EFFECT AND WE WILL ENJOY THAT AND SEVEN YEARS WITH HIGH PRESSURE SODIUM. WE HAVE EVERY REASON THAT WE WILL GET A GREATER TIMEFRAME FROM THE LEDS BUT I REALLY DON’T HAVE HISTORY TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION. >> THANK YOU. >> COUNCILMEMBER PATENA. >> THANK YOU MAYOR. AM I CORRECT IN ASSUMING THAT APS ALSO HAS LIGHTS IN PEORIA? >> COUNCILMEMBER PATENA THE CITY OF PEORIA OWNS THE STREET LIGHTS THAT ARE ON ALL PUBLIC STREETS SO THE ONLY ONCE THAT WE DON’T OWN ARE IN GATED OR úPRIVATE COMMUNITIES.>>OKAY. THANK YOU. >> ANYTHING ELSE? WELL, I FOR ONE REALLY LIKE THE IDEA OF $200,000 A YEAR SAVINGS AND MOVING TO SOMETHING THAT IS A MUCH MORE SUSTAINABLE AND SMARTER AVENUE FOR LIGHTING OUR STREETS SO THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR WORK TO BRING US UP TO RAISE THE BAR A LITTLE BIT IN THE CITY OF PEORIA. COUNCIL DO I HAVE A MOTION? >> SO MOVED. >> SECOND. >> I HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND. PLEASE VOTE. THANK YOU. IT PASSES UNANIMOUSLY. THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. >> ALL RIGHT. NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS CALL TO THE PUBLIC FOR NON AGENDA ITEMS. IF YOU WISH TO ADDRESS THE COUNCIL PLEASE COMPLETE A SPEAKER REQUEST FORM AND PLACE IT IN THE BIN NEXT TO THE SPEAKERS PODIUM AND I RECEIVED ONE SPEAKER REQUEST FORM FROM NAN SHELTON. IF YOU WOULD KINDLY GIVE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS AT THE PODIUM FOR THE RECORD PLEASE. >> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU. >> I AM NAN SHELTON. I LIVE 89TH AVENUE IN PEORIA. I HAVE BEEN HERE ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF. WHEN I FIRST MOVED HERE PRETTY EARLY ON I CAME TO COUNCIL MEETINGS. AND I SPOKE ONCE BEFORE SAYING WHAT AN AMAZING CITY THIS IS, AND I CONTINUE TO BE IMPRESSED. I JUST — YOUR STATE OF THE CITY úADDRESS WAS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING THINGS I HAVE – BEEN TO. THE ROADS AND HOW WE TAKE CARE OF ROADS, THE SHREDDING — I MEAN THERE ARE SO úMANY THINGS AND THE CHIEF OF POLICE — I DON’T SEE HIM — OH THERE HE IS.L AND I BOTH CAME ABOUT THE SAME TIME AND HE WAS INSTALLED OFFICIALLY AT ONE OF MY EARLY MEETINGS. HE DOESN’T KNOW ME FROM ADAM BUT I FEEL CONNECTED TO HIM IN THE WAY I úSEE A POLICE CAR I THINK THAT’ PART OF MY FAMILY. I MEAN IT’S JUST A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE FABULOUS JOB YOU DO. I HAVE BEEN IN OTHER CITIES WHERE — LET’S SAY THEY WEREN’T THE CLASS ACT YOU ARE YOU ARE IS AN UNDER STATE AND I HOPE EVERYONE APPRECIATES IT AND YOU’RE AMAZING AND I APPRECIATE YOU. THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH AND PLEASE COME BACK — [LAUGHTER] >>WE WILL NOW MOVE ON TO REPORTS FROM THE CITY MANAGER, MR. TYNE. >> GREAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND IF YOU WILL INDULGE ME WHETHER OR NOT IS A COUPLE OF VERY PRESENTATIONS AND ENTERTAINING VIDEOS TO SHOW BUT FIRST OFF VERY IMPORTANT TO DISCUSS THE CITY’S GENERAL PLAN AND PROVIDE AN UPDATE. THE GENERAL PLAN AS YOU’RE AWARE HAS GUIDED PEORIA THROUGH OUR ISSUES OF GROWTH AND PROVIDING OUR PUBLIC SERVICES AND FACILITIES AND REALLY HAS BEEN THAT BLUEPRINT FOR THAT AND SO WITH US WE HAVE PLANNING DIRECTOR CHRIS JACQUES WHO WILL PRESENT AN UPDATE ON THE GENERAL PLAN AND THE APPROACH OVER THE NEXT 20 YEARS SO NO PRESSURE CHRIS. >> GREAT JEFF. THANKS MAYOR AND COUNCIL. SO I’M OING TO PROVIDE A CONCISE REPORT ON THE STATUS OF THE GENERAL PLAN UPDATE BUT IMPORTANTLY ON THE FORTS COMING COMMENT PERIOD THAT IS BEFORE US FOR THE 2019 CYCLE AMENDMENTS. AS YOU KNO THE GENERAL PLAN UPDATE IS A MULTI-YEAR UPDATE. WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT FOR A YEAR CAREERS AND ACCOMPLISHING ANNUAL AMENDMENTS THAT BRING US TO THAT COMPLETED DOCUMENT THAT WE ANTICIPATE PUTTING ON THE BALLOT FOR 2020. >> . >> SO FOR THE VIEWING PUBLIC THE GENERAL PLAN IS THE CITY’S FOUNDATIONAL DOCUMENT THAT GUIDES CURRENT AND FUTURE GROWTH DECISIONS IN THE CITY. IT ADDRESSES ALL FACETS OF GROWTH FROM LAND USE, CIRCULATION AND – WATER AND THE LIKE. THE STATE STATUTE REQUIRES THAT WE HAVE A GENERAL PLAN AND IT REQUIRES 17. A CITY OF OUR SIZE HAVE – WE’RE ELECTING TO ACCOMPLISH 24 ELEMENTS SO ALSO WHAT UNIQUE TO THE STATE OF ARIZONA IS THAT IT REQUIRES THAT AT LEAST EVERY 10 YEARS WE BRING THE GENERAL PLAN TO A VOTE OF THE PUBLIC AND THAT IT BE RATIFIED EVERY 10 YEARS SO THE LAST VOTE WAS 2010 AND THAT’S WHY NEXT FALL WE WILL PLACE IT ON THE BALLOT AT THAT TIME. THIS YEAR’S UPDATE I GIVE YOU A QUICK RUN DOWN OF THE HIGHLIGHTS. THIS YEAR’S AMENDMENTS ARE SUBSTANTIAL IN THAT DIRECTION AND TALK ABOUT THE COMMENT PERIOD JUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE DOCUMENT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. WE’RE ANTICIPATING COMMENTS. THERE’S REFINEMENTS AND CHANGES. WE’RE GOING TO COME BACK IN FRONT OF THE COUNCIL AND DRILL DOWN SOME OF THE ELEMENTS AND TALK TO THE OTHER BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS AS WELL AND WE’RE ANTICIPATING – úCHANGES AND EVEN THOUGH WE’RE TALK BEING ABOUT THE 2019 CYCLE INVARIABLY WE WILL MAKE CHANGES TO THE DOCUMENT AND REFINE WHERE WE NEED TO AND APPROPRIATE AND PLACE IT FORMALLY ON THE BALLOT FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE VOTERS. SO THE 2019 GENERAL PLAN CYCLE — I WILL TALK BRIEFLY ABOUT THE FOUR HIGHLIGHTS OR DELIVERABLES. WE WILL TALK ABOUT THE úREORGANIZATION OF DOCUMENT AND THE LAND USE CATEGORIES. WE’RE LOOKING AT RIFORMATION OF THE CATEGORIES AND COMPLETE REFORMATION OF THE LAND USE MAP THAT WE USE FREQUENTLY AND UPDATED GOALS AND POLICIES SO IN BRIEF THE WAY THE PROCESS WOULD GO IS THAT THE END OF JULY I THINK JULY 18 WE’RE GOING TO EMBARK ON A 60 DAY REVIEW PERIOD AND WE PROVIDE THE DOCUMENT AND THE SUPPORTING MATERIALS TO ALL THE AGENCIES, INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL AS WELL AS THE PUBLIC. WE HAVE A WEBSITE WE’RE MAINTAINING THAT WILL PROVIDE THE ADDRESS TO YOU WHERE THE PUBLIC CAN ACCESS THE WEBSITE. THEY CAN LOOK AT THE LAND USE MAP AND MAKE COMMENTS THROUGH THE WEBSITE AND ADDRESS EACH COMMENTS AS WE BRING THE ITEM FORWARD FOR ULTIMATELY FOR – COUNCIL CONSIDERATION IN NOVEMBER THIS YEAR FOR THIS YEAR’S CYCLE OF AMENDMENTS. OKAY. WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT HERE IS A GRAPHIC. I MENTIONED THAT THE CITY PUT TOGETHER 24 ELEMENTS OR CHAPTERS. ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOOKED AT WHEN REORGANIZING THE DOCUMENT IT MAKES SENSE TO ORGANIZATION THOSE 26 CHAPTERS. ALSO AT THE SAME TIME THE CITY IS WORKING ON THE LIVABILITY INITIATIVE OR THE GOALS AND PRIORITIES FOR THE CITY INTO THE FUTURE AND HAPPENS – THAT THE ESSENCE OF THE GOALS AND THE ESSENCE OF TE GENERAL PLAN WHO DO WE WANT TO BE IN THE FUTURE COMES DOWN TO SIX AREAS AND INCLUDE ECONOMIC PROSPERITY, SMART GROWTH, ECONOMIC TRANSPORTATION AND HEALTHY NEIGHBORHOODS AND SO FORTH. THE MEANS TO REACH THESE ELEMENTS AND ADDRESS THESE FACTORS MIGHT DEFER IN SOME RESPECTS BETWEEN THE LIVABILITY AND THE GENERAL – PLAN ABOUT THERE’S A LOT OF CROSS OVER. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE CAPTAINS PART OF THE LIVABILITY AND SEE THE IDEAS AND PRIORITIES THREATED THROUGHOUT THE GENERAL PLAN DOCUMENT. >> . >> LET’S TALK ABOUT THE NEXT ITEM ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS IS REFINING THE LAND USE CATEGORY SO WHAT YOU SEE ON THE RIGHT THAT IS THE GENERAL PLAN LAND USE MAP LOOKS LIKE AND AS YOU KNOW ALL THE COLORS MEAN SOMETHING. GREEN IS PARK/OPEN – SPACE. RED IS COMMERCIAL AND SO FORTH AND SO WE HAVE LAND USE CATEGORIES. WE’RE LOOKING AT COMPLETE REFORMATION OF THE CATEGORIES. THE DIRECTIVE FROM COUNCIL A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO IS WE WANTED CATEGORIES THAT WERE MORE DESCRIPTIVE IN TERMS OF THE TYPE, THE SCALE AND THE FORM OF DEVELOPMENT THAT WE’RE EXPECTING SO WITH THESE CATEGORIES ASIDE FROM THE NAMING CONVENTIONS THEY WILL PROVIDE A LOT MORE DIRECTION AND DESIN PARAMETERS IN TERMS A CLOSER FIT TO WHAT – KINDS OF DEVELOPMENT AND WHAT IT WILL LOOK AND FEEL LIKE OPPOSED TO THE CURRENT GENERAL PLAN SO WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT THESE CATEGORIES. SOME OF THE AREAS THAT ARE NEW IS THE CITY MOVING INTO A DIRECTION WHERE WE’RE LOOKING AT MORE MIX USE OR TYPE OF CATEGORY WHERE YOU MIX RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES TOGETHER. THE CITY IS CHANGING — THE COUNTRY IS AGING AND WITH THE EFFECT OF THE INTERNET RETAILING WE’RE SEEING DOWN SCALING OF COMMERCIAL AREAS INTO MORE MIX USE AREAS. PROVIDE MORE FLEXIBILITY ON THE LAND USE MAP AND WE’RE LOOKING AT THOSE CHANGES AND WITH THE NEW REFORMULATED LAND USE CATEGORIES WE HAVE TO PLACE IT ON THE MAP SO IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO REPOSITION STRATEGIC AND úTRANSITIONING PROPERTYINGS THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND REFINE THOSE AREAS WHERE IT’S IMPORTANT PARTICULARLY ALONG SOME OF THE NEXT GROWTH CORRIDORS AND LOOP 303 AND LAKE PLEASANT PARKWAY AND BEYOND SO A GENERAL PLAN MAP LOOKS 10, 20 YEARS AND BEYOND SO WE’RE TRYING TO REFINE THAT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT WIRE INTENDING IN THE FUTURE. SO AGAIN AS I MENTIONED THIS IS AN ITERATIVE PROCESS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE STAKEHOLDER MEETINGS. WE HAVE BEEN MEETING WITH THE PUBLIC THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO SOLICIT FEEDBACK FROM THE BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS AND THE COUNCIL AND THE WORKING TEAMS WORKING ON THE SIX CHAPTERS AND REFINE THE ELEMENTS SO AS I IDENTIFIED EARLIER ON JULY 18 IS WHEN WE ANTICIPATE PUTTING THE MATERIALS OUT FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION. WE WILL HAVE AN OPEN HOUSE AND WE WILL WORK WITH OFFICE OF COMMUNICATIONS WHEN THE DATE IS SET AND AFTER WE HAVE TAKEN THE COMMENTS IN WE WILL REVISE THE DOCUMENT AS APPROPRIATE AND WE WILL TAKE IT THROUGH THE HEARING PROCESS. THAT WILL INCLUDE PUBLIC HEARINGS, TWO IN FRONT OF THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION AND FINALLY WITH THE CITY COUNCIL IN NOVEMBER AND FOR ANY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC THAT WANTS INFORMATION WHAT YOU SEE ON THE SCREEN. THAT IS THE WEBSITE FOR THE GENERAL PLAN UPDATE. AND MAPPING IS ON THE WEBSITE AND A MECHANISM TO MAKE COMMENT ON ANY OF THE STUFF MAKE COMMENTS DIRECTLY INTO THE WEBSITE AND WE’LL USE THAT AS WE REFINE THE DOCUMENT SO WITH THAT I WILL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE. >> THANK YOU. COUNCIL? COMMENTS? WELL, FIRST OF ALL I THINK THIS IS A REALLY APPROPRIATE PRESENTATION THIS EVENING BECAUSE MEMBERS OF OUR PLI GRADUATING CLASS ARE HERE RIGHT BEHIND AND YOU THEY’RE INTELLIGENT AND LOOKING FOR WAYS TO GET INVOLVED AND THERE IT IS RIGHT THERE AND THE WEBSITE. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR INPUT HOW OUR CITY IS GOING TO GROW. IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT OUR CITIZENS TELL US WHAT THEY WANT úFOR THE FUTURE OF OUR CITY. WE’RE GOING TO GROW ONE WAY OR ANOTHER SO LET’S DO IT THE SMARTEST AND BEST WAY WE CAN AND THE WAY THAT MEETS THE UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF OUR CITIZENS AND OUR CITY SO WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL GET INVOLVED AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT MIGHT BE LISTENING TO THIS. WE REALLY WANT TO LISTEN TO THE CITIZENS AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THE WORK THAT YOU’RE DOING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE CATEGORIES, THE LAND USE CATEGORIES THAT WE MOVE FORWARD WITH IN THE FUTURE ARE MORE FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE AND MORE MODERN THEN WHAT WE USED IN THE PAST. IT’S TIME FOR US TO GROW UP, HUH? THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> THANK YOU MAYOR. JUST A QUICK OBSERVATION. WE TAKE PRIDE IN THE WORK THAT WE DO AND DEPUTY CITY MANAGER ERIK STRUNK WILL DO IS A VIDEO FROM THE COLORADO WATER MANIA EVENT. >> THANK YOU MR. TYNE. THANK YOU MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

NEXT CHECK FOR TIGHTNESS. FINGER TIGHT. TIGHT CAP THE METER. >> WE’RE BOTH VERY COMPETITIVE PEOPLE BUT WE’RE ON THE SAME TIME ALTHOUGH I DID TRY TO TAKE THE TROPHY FROM HIM.

TYNE, MAYOR AND COUNCIL IT’S A PLEASURE TO BE HERE TO GIVE A BRIEF RE-CAP — 45 MINUTES SHOULD COVER IT AND DEMONSTRATE THE ASSEMBLY OF A WATER METER FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT AS WELL. NO, TRULY IT’S AN HONOR TO TO REPRESENT THE CITY AT THE STATE CAPITOL. IT’S A BIG ISSUE ON THE AGENDA. TWO KEY ITEMS YOU DISCUSSED AND TAKE ACTION ON WERE ULTIMATELY AFFECTED BY STATE LEGISLATION SO AS YOU KNOW EVERY JANUARY WHEN THE LEGISLATURE CONVENES THE IGA TEAM AND TEAM PEORIA DOWN AT THE CAPITOL AND KEEPING AN EYE ON THE LEGISLATION THAT THE LEGISLATURES IN THE LOWS AND SENATE PROUS. OUR GOAL IS PROTECT THE INTEREST OF THE CITY OF PEORIA AND OUR RESIDENTS. OUR IGA COORDINATOR CONTINUES TO TAKE A LOADING ROLE AT THE STATE CAPITOL AND LEADING THE PRESENTATION DOING DOING THE RE-CAP OF THE SESSION TONIGHT STOW WITH THAT I WILL TURN IT OVER TO HER AND I ALSO GIVE A QUICK SHOUT OUT TO DIRECTORS AND STAFF FOR IT IS SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS AND PROVIDE ALL THE EXPERTISE THAT WE NEED TO TAKE POSITIONS ON LEGISLATION. >> MAYOR AND COUNCIL THANK YOU FOR HAVING US TONIGHT. AS THOMAS I SAID I WILL KEEP THIS BRIEF WHICH IS ONE OF MY STRENGTHS IN PUBLIC SPEAKING. OVERALL THIS WAS A VERY POSITIVE SESSION FOR CITIES AND TOWNS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST — [OFF MIC] WE HAVE LEADERSHIP IN BOTH CHAMBERS AND THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE, WORKED COLLABORATIVELY WITH THE LEAGUE AND LOCAL LEADERS TO ENSURE THAT WE HAVE HAD THOUGHTFUL AND CREATIVE SOLUTIONS AND POLICIES THAT WERE PUSHED FORWARD AND ULTIMATELY PASSED. AS YOU WILL SEE THE GOVERNOR SIGNED 320 BILLS THIS SESSION, 11 WERE SEEDOS AND THE MAJORITY OF THOSEWILL BECOME EFFECTIVE ON AUGUST 27 WITH THE EXCEPTION THOSE WITH AN EMERGENCY CLAUSE OR DELAYED EFFECTIVE DATE. WE HOSTED THE SECOND PEORIA DAY AT THE LEGISLATURE THIS YEAR WITH LEADERS,OUT COUNCIL, VICE MAYOR BINSBACHER, COUNCILMEMBER EDWARDS AND COUNCILMEMBER PATENA THIS. CONTINUES TO BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO CONNECT WITH OUR STATE LEGISLATORS AND – TO ENGAGE RESIDENTS ON LEGISLATIVE ISSUES THAT AFFECT THEM LOCALLY. WE LOOK FORWARD TO GROW THIS EVENT IN FUTURE YEARS AND IMPROVE UPON THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR RESIDENTS. úSO THIS SESSION BEGAN WITH A LASER FOCUS ON WATER AND ARIZONA’S ROLE ON THE DROUGHT CONTINGENCY PLAN. LEGISLATORS ARE TWO WEEKS TO GET A BILL TO THE GOVERNOR WHICH MEANT COMPACTED AND TOUGH STAKEHOLDER MEETINGS AND NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE FARMERS AND CTIES, BUSINESSES AND THE NUMBER OF OTHER STAKEHOLDERS. AS YOU’VE HEARD IN PREVIOUS MEETINGS PEORIA WATER TEAM WAS HUGELY IMPACTFUL HELPING THE CITY úTHROUGHOUT THE PROCESS AND PROTECT BEING OUR INTEREST AND AT THE SAME TIME THIS WAS GOING ON A GROUP OF CONSERVATIVE LAWMAKERS WERE ATTEMPTING TO LEVERAGE THE GOVERNOR’S DESIRE FOR A DC P WITH THEIR DESIRE FOR A TAX CONFORMITY PACKAGE AND REDUCE THE TAX RATE ACROSS THE BOARD AND COST THE CITY $200 MILLION IN REVENUE. IT WAS STEINED BY THE DEADLINE AND THE FIRST LINE OF TAX CONFORMITY WAS VETOED. AS WE WENT INTO NEGOTIATIONS WE HAD THREE BIGGEST FOCAL POINTS. WAY FAIR REFERS TO THE DECISION OUT OF SOUTH DAKOTA FROM LAST SUMMER THAT SAYS STATES CAN TAX OUT OF STATE RETAILERS IF THEY DO A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TRANSACTIONS IN THE STATE AND THE CITY REPORTED THIS CONCEPT BECAUSE IT CREATES EQUITY FOR IN STATE RETAILERS. ULTIMATELY THE NEW TAXATIONS FOR DIGITAL GOODS AND SERVICES DID NOT PASS AND TAX CONFORMITY WAS PAIRED WITH WAY FAIR AS PART OF THE ULTIMATE BUDGET PACKAGE AND HAPPY TO SUPPORT THIS OUTCOME AS IT PROTECTED LOCAL CONTROL AND NOT HARM LOCAL REVENUES. ANOTHER ISSUE THAT RECEIVED SIGNIFICANT ATTENTION IN THE MEDIA THAT YOU’RE AWAY IS THE STATE WIDE TEXTING WHILE DRIVING BAN. AS ANTICIPATED THE LEGISLATURE AND THE GOVERNOR DID REACH AN AGREEMENT AND WITH THAT THE RECENT ADOPTION OF OUR OWN MATCHING ORDINANCE PEORIA AND THE STATE HAS SENT A STRONG AND CLEAR MESSAGE WE’RE RAISING THE BAR ON SAFE DRIVING. AND LASTLY ONE TOPIC THAT DID NOT REACH ANY RESOLUTION THIS SESSION IS THAT OF PIER TO PIER CAR RENTING. THERE WERE TWO COMPETING BILLS THIS SESSION. ONE THAT WOULD HAVE EXEMPTED CERTAIN RENTAL COMPANIES FROM TAX AND SURCHARGES AND ONE THAT WAS LOOKING TO EVEN THE PLAYING FIELD FOR ALL SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR PIER TO PIER CAR RENTING OF COMPANIES. BECAUSE NEITHER SIDE COULD PREVAIL AND COMPROMISE WASN’T REACHED WE ANTICIPATE SEEING THIS ISSUE úAGAIN NEXT SESSION. AND QUICKLY AS WE LOOK FORWARD TO 2020 THE TWO PRIMARY ISSUES WE WANT TO PUT ON YOUR RADAR IS THAT OF THE POSSIBLE EXTENSION OF THE REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION SALES TAX KNOWN AS PROP 400 WHICH WILL REQUIRE ENABLING LEGISLATION AND OF COURSE CENSUS 2020. BOTH OF THESE ITEMS WILL HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON PEORIA AND OUR BUDGET FOR YEARS TO COME AND YOU CAN EXPECT TO HEAR MUCH MORE MOVING FORWARD SO WITH THAT THAT CONCLUDES OUR PRESENTATION AND WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. >> THANK YOU. COUNCIL ANY QUESTIONS? COUNCILMEMBER PATENA. >> THANK YOU MAYOR. YOU KNOW I KNOW BOTH OF YOU GUYS. YOU HAVE A REAL DIFFICULT JOB DOWN THERE AND WITH ALL THE BILLS GO THROUGH YOU TAKE CARE OF THE CITY AND I WANT TO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATE YOUR EFFORTS.>>THANK YOU. >> I REALLY HAVE TO CONCUR WITH THAT. 1318 BILLS. THIS IS FROM A LEGISLATURE THAT BUILDINGS IN SMALLER GOVERNMENT; RIGHT? 1318 BILLS, AND OUT OF THAT ALL OF THE WORK AND ALL OF THE EDUCATION AND ALL OF THE DIPLOMACY THAT YOUGUYS SPENT MONTHS AND MONTHS DEALING WITH ALL HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT. YOU CAN BOIL THAT DOWN TO FIVE BULLET POINTS HERE TODAY AND – THAT IS QUITE A NEAT SO I MEAN REALLY WE CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR WHAT YOU DO TO PROTECT PEORIA, OUR RESIDENTS, OUR WELL BEING AND OUR FUTURE. IT’S ENORMOUS AND WE ARE REALLY INDEBTED TO YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> IT’S OUR HONOR. >> THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. >>ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU FOR – SPEAKING SO WELL OF THE BEST TEAM IN THE STATE PROBABLY BEYOND THAT AND GREAT PRESENTATION BY THE WAY AND THAT’S ALL I HAVE. THANK YOU MAYOR AND COUNCIL. >> THANK YOU.
