  • Objective is to provide update to CouncilExplain what has and is being done in area while finalizing detailsPresent staff proposal for adoption and implementationPresent staff proposal for timeline to plan adoptionSeeking questions and direction
  • Medical District Concept grew out of a combination of market interests and City planningComprehensive Plan promotes a city of places of distinction including districts, corridors, and neighborhoodsComprehensive Plan identifies this area as a future district with health and wellness as a catalyst/focusHigh Quality of life, economic opportunity, etc in visionEconomic Development provisions of Comp Plan call for further diversification of local economyOne of two key sectors identified for diversification is healthcareEco Devo portion of Comp Plan proposes a strategy that pursue regional market opportunitiesCouncil Strategic Plan has as one of six strategic initiatives – growing diverse economyPlan identifies specific strategies focused on expanding regional medical offeringsPrivate development in area significant (College Station Medical Center expansion, Scott & White Hospital, and Senior Housing and Medical Services project)Draft Master Plan states the purpose of the Medical District as an effort to support the City’s goal of designating a special district that will establish identity, promote continuity, and invite significant new investment to fulfill the demand for medical and health care related uses Private development (the Med) early champions of the effort to develop Medical District
  • Time has not stopped, much has been going on in this area over the past several monthsThroughout 2011 staff worked with a consultant team and council appointed advisory group to develop a draft master planWork was completed in late 2011 with updates provided to Council in OctoberKey medical stakeholders continue to make significant investmentsCity sought and secured funds from State to upgrade Rock Prairie Road Bridge Design underway
  • City partnered (via HOME funds and support of tax-credit application) affordable senior housing and medical services projectSignificant investment in wastewater and electric facilities to serve new Scott & White facilityPreliminary design underway for voter-approved Lick Creek Greenway Path which will serve area and provide ped and bike connections to large areas of CityImprovements to Bird Pond Road, preliminary design of Rock Prairie Road East and West, and Barron Road extensionSeveral meetings with property owners and other key stakeholders on-goingOn-going communications (face to face and regular e-mail updates)And development of staff proposal for adoption and implementation – focus of remainder of presentation
  • Staff proposal – not just a normal planning process where we would complete plan and then ask for adoptionStaff refining elements of draft master planNeeds more (complex, many stakeholders, significant public role, etc)Staff is proposing that consideration of adoption of the master plan only following development of framework (ie generally how we anticipate implementing each of these components) for three major components of successful implementationThis way everyone has better idea of what it means to adopt the master planRegulations & Standards – this is where we will identify what types of regs (zoning – form-based, overlay, other, architectural standards, design standards, etc)Management, marketing and operations – this is where we will explore best way to effectively manage the area (municipal management district, public improvement district, advisory group, etc)Capital improvements – this is where we will define capital needs and explore methods for paying for such needs (such as TIRZ/TIF, assessments, etc)Of course throughout this process we will continue to communicate with stakeholders and seek their feedback on each of the frameworks as we develop themIn the end we hope to present a refined plan for adoption along with each of the frameworks for consideration at the same time
  • We realize time is of the essenceWe want to do this right but we also want to seize the moment and to keep things movingAs already mentioned, certain things will keep getting done (Rock Prairie Road Bridge, stret improvements, etc)We expect to have the refined draft ready for public hearings in spring (April?) and then adoptionWe hope to have identified a management structure to the extent that by this same time it can be formalized (for example initiate the development of a municipal management district)We also hope to identify the initial financing mechanism (such as a TIRZ/TIF) so that we can continue to make progress with the major capital improvements and also to “capture” new value as development occurs
