NOW, THEREFORE, I, Dwain Morrison, Mayor of the City of San Angelo, Texas, on behalf of the City Council, do hereby proclaim and permanently designated the third Thursday in November of each year as “Children's Grief Awareness Day” in San Angelo in order to raise public awareness about childhood bereavement and give the citizens of our community the opportunity to express their support for the children and teens living in San Angelo who have suffered the loss of a loved one by participating in recognized support events and wearing blue, and recognize the efforts of local grief centers, such as Hospice of San Angelo’s Building Bridges Program, for their work on behalf of grieving children and teens.

  • 30. City of San Angelo Memo Date: October 8, 2013 To: Councilmembers From: Ryan Kramer, Vehicle Maintenance Subject: Agenda Item for November 5, 2013 Contact: Ryan Kramer, Vehicle Maintenance - 657-4329 Caption: Consent Consideration of awarding Buyboard quote VM-10-13 for two ambulance chassis ($55,432) and HGAC quote VM-11-13 for two ambulance box remounts ($55,675), and authorizing the City Manager or designee to execute any necessary related documents Summary: A Buyboard quote was solicited and received from Caldwell Chevrolet for two (2) one-ton chassis for the use of ambulance vehicles. An HGAC quote was also sought and received from Frazer, LTD for the removal, refurbishing, and remounting of existing boxes already used by the San Angelo Fire Department. History: The City has established a replacement cycle for ambulance chassis of two per year. This cycle replaces each ambulance chassis and refurbishes the patient boxes at approximately six year intervals to ensure the department continues to operate reliable emergency transportation vehicles. Existing City-owned ambulance boxes are removed, cleaned, updated, and remounted on the new chassis. The two replacement ambulance chassis previously approved by council (March 5, 2013) have been purchased and are undergoing the refurbishing process (approved October 1, 2013) at Frazer in Houston. The two chassis described above were ordered late in 2013 due to the Chevrolet factory build ordering schedule. There was a time frame in 2013 where Chevrolet was not taking new build orders. This forced us to purchase 2014 model chassis instead of 2013 models. There was a bid price difference, but Caldwell Chevrolet let us order the 2014 model at the 2013 price. We had to wait until we could order the 2014 chassis through Chevrolet. This caused us to get off our rotation program as it caused the overlap of refurbishing the units into the FY2014. The funds were rolled over from the FY 2013 to the FY 2014 budget to accommodate the process. The two awards being considered at this time are for the replacement of two ambulance chassis and refurbishing of two currently owned ambulance boxes for the current fiscal year (2013-2014).
  • 31. This process is typically started early because of delays in manufacturing of the chassis and to be put on a waiting list for box refurbishing. Caldwell Chevrolet currently has two 2014 model year chassis meeting City criteria available for purchase. This will aid in completing ambulance replacement for this fiscal year sooner by avoiding the manufacturing waiting period. This purchase also allows us to get back on track with our replacement program. Hopefully we will also be able to complete the refurbishment prior to our high volume needs for standby ambulance request during football season 2014. Financial Impact: The City will purchase two (2) one-ton chassis from Caldwell Country ($55,432) off Buyboard contract #358-10 and the remount service from Frazer ($55,675) off HGAC contract #AM10-12 from capital account 501-9000-800-07-42. Total budget for the project is $210,000, which includes purchasing two truck chassis, the refurbishing of two ambulance boxes and replacement of equipment used in the operation of ambulance services.

In determining the lowest responsible bidder, the following criteria will be considered. • Was the bid received within the time and date specified in the Request for Bid (RFB)? • Was the bid executed by a person authorized to sign for the company? • Was pricing provided as requested in the Request for Bids? • Does the bid meet the minimum specifications? • Does the bidder and bidder’s subcontractors have adequate experience and technical experience to successfully fulfill the contract requirements? • Did the bidder provide a list of references to include company or individual name, contact person, phone number? • Did the bidder provide a list of projects of similar size and dollar amount as this project? • What is the bidder’s quality and performance on previous contracts? • Is the bidder on the federal, state, or other department lists? • Has the bidder been terminated from a project for non-compliance or substandard work? • Does the bidder have the financial resources to provide the necessary equipment, materials, labor, etc., to successfully complete the project? Can the bidder provide a performance and payment bond in an amount equal to the total amount of the project? RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 4
  • 40. • Does the bidder have a permanent place of business? • Does the bidder have adequate staff available to complete the project within the period specified? • Can the bidder provide the required insurance coverages as specified? • Does the bidder have a satisfactory work history with the City? 1.0.1.8. Bid Security Each proposal must be accompanied by a Bid Bond, Certified or Cashier's Check (on a solvent bank in the State of Texas), drawn to the order of the Owner in the sum of not less than five percent (5%) of the total amount of the proposal. The bid bond must be executed by a surety meeting the requirements set forth in the General Conditions. The bid security shall be made payable without condition to the City of San Angelo, Texas. Bids submitted without a bid bond will be considered non-responsive and rejected. 1.0.1.9. Return of Bid Security The bid security of the successful Bidder will be retained until he has executed the contract agreement and furnished the required Contract Security and insurance, whereupon checks furnished as bid security will be returned. The bid security of any Bidder whom Owner believes to have a reasonable chance of receiving the award may be retained by Owner until the day after the required documents are delivered by the selected Bidder to Owner but not to exceed 60 days after the Bid opening. Checks furnished as bid security by other Bidders will be returned within 30 days of the Bid opening. 1.0.2. Interpretations All questions about the meaning or intent of the Contract Documents shall be submitted to the Purchasing Department in writing. Replies will be issued by Addenda mailed, faxed, emailed, or delivered to all parties recorded by Owner as having received the bid documents. Questions received less than five days prior to the date for opening of Bids will not be answered. Only questions answered by formal written Addenda will be binding. Oral interpretations or clarifications will be without legal effect. 1.0.3. Taxes and Permits Attention is directed to the requirements of the General Conditions regarding payment of taxes and obtaining permits. All taxes that are lawfully assessed against Owner or Selected Bidder in connection with the Work shall be paid by the selected Bidder. The bid prices shall include all such taxes and the costs of all required permits. The Owner is exempt from State Sales Tax. The Owner's State Sales Tax Exemption Number is 75-6000-659. 1.0.4. Examination of Contract Documents Each bidder shall thoroughly examine and be familiar with the Contract Documents. The submission of a bid shall constitute an acknowledgment that the bidder has thoroughly examined and is familiar with the contract documents. The failure or neglect of a bidder to receive or examine any of the contract documents shall in no way relieve him from any obligations with respect to his bid or to the contract. No claim for extra or additional compensation will be allowed based upon a lack of knowledge of any contract document, and the Owner will in no case be responsible for any loss or for unanticipated costs that may be suffered by the selected Bidder as a result of conditions pertaining to the work. 1.0.5. Familiarization with the Type of Work Before submitting his Bid, each prospective Bidder shall familiarize himself with the Work, local labor conditions and all laws, regulations, and other factors affecting performance of the Work. He shall carefully correlate his observations with requirements of the Contract Documents and otherwise satisfy himself of the expense and difficulties attending performance of the Work. The submission of a Bid will constitute a representation of compliance by the Bidder. There will be no subsequent financial adjustment for lack of such familiarization. 1.0.6. Site Investigation The information contained in the Contract Documents in regard to topography, subsurface soils, subsurface structures, and any quantities based thereon, is furnished solely for the convenience of the Contractor as information available at the time. The accuracy of this information is not guaranteed and the Contractor is RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 5
  • 41. fully and solely responsible to verify pertinent information prior to bid time. Use of the information provided in no way relieves the Contractor or others of any responsibility for loss due to inaccuracies or deviations, which may be encountered. 1.0.7. Soils Testing Specifications The Contractor will be allowed to conduct soils investigations within the alignment of the proposed Project, as they can be coordinated with the Owner and appropriate landowners during the Bid preparation phase. All such investigations must be coordinated through the Owner. 1.0.8. Subcontractors and Suppliers When requested by the Owner, within 24 hours of bid opening, the apparent low Bidder, and any other Bidder so requested, shall submit a list of all Subcontractors he expects to use in the Work. 1.0.8.1. Subcontractor Qualification Particular consideration will be given to the qualifications of each Subcontractor proposed to perform more than 5 per cent (5%) of the Work. The successful Bidder will submit to the Owner for acceptance a list of the names of subcontractors and such other persons and organizations (including those who are to furnish materials or equipment fabricated to a special design) identifying that portion of the Work to be performed by each subcontractor within fourteen (14) days of the issuance of Notice of Award. Subcontractors will be evaluated utilizing “Criteria for Determining Lowest Responsible Bidder” as contained herein. The Owner will notify the successful Bidder in writing if, after due investigation, there is objection to any Subcontractor, person, or organization on such list. If the apparent low Bidder declines to make any such substitution, the contract shall not be awarded to such Bidder, but his declining to make any such substitution will not constitute grounds for sacrificing his Bid Security. Additional requirements for subcontractors are contained within the General Conditions, of this document. The failure of the Owner to make any such objection prior to the execution and delivery of the Agreement shall constitute an acceptance of such Subcontractor, person, or organization. Such acceptance a Subcontractor, person or organization shall not: (1) constitute a waiver of any right of the Owner to reject defective Work, Material, or Equipment, or Work, Material, or Equipment not in conformance with the requirements of the Contract Documents; or (2) constitute a waiver of Contractor’s complete and total liability for any defective Work, Material, or Equipment, or Work Material or Equipment not in conformance with the requirements of the Contract Documents whether or not provided by or performed by any such Subcontractor. If the Owner registers objection to and refuses to accept a Subcontractor, person, or organization list the successful Bidder may either (1) submit an acceptable substitute without an increase in his Bid price or (2) withdraw his Bid. If the Owner raises objection to a Subcontractor, person, or organization after the execution and delivery of the Agreement, the Contractor will submit an acceptable substitute and the Contract Price shall be increased or decreased by the reasonable difference in cost occasioned by such substitution and an appropriate Change Order shall be issued. In the event that prior objection is raised as described above, but the Contractor fails to submit an acceptable substitute prior to execution and delivery of the Agreement, no increase in Contract Price shall be allowed. 1.0.8.2. Suppliers The list of Subcontractors shall also include the suppliers and manufacturers of the principal items of materials and equipment the Bidder expects to use in the Work. 1.0.9. Copies of Contract Documents The selected Bidder to whom a contract is awarded will be furnished, without cost to him, five (5) copies of the specifications and five (5) sets of the drawings, together with all Addenda thereto. Additional copies of specifications and drawings may be obtained from the Owner at the cost stated in the Invitation to Bid. 1.0.10.

Such bond(s) shall bear the same date as or a date subsequent to, the date of the contract. (b) On each such bond the rate of premium shall be stated, together with the total amount of the premium charged. The current power of attorney for the person who signs for any surety company shall be attached to such bond. (c) The failure of the successful bidder to supply the required bonds within thirty (30) days after the prescribed forms are presented for signature, or within such extended period as the Owner may grant based upon reasons determined adequate by the Owner, shall constitute a default, and the Owner may either award the contract to the next responsible bidder or re-advertise for bids, and may charge against the bidder the difference between the amount of the bid and the amount for which a contract for the work is subsequently executed, irrespective of whether the amount thus due exceeds the amount of the bid guarantee. (d) Performance and Payment Bonds shall be delivered to the Purchasing Department. 1.0.11. Waiver of Performance and Payment Bonds Performance and Payment Bonds may be waived under the following circumstances: 1) The Payment Bond is not required if the contract sum is twenty-five thousand ($25,000.00) Dollars or less, 2) The Performance Bond is not required if the contract sum is less than one-hundred thousand ($100,000.00) Dollars, and 3) The selected bidder provides a current certificate of Insurance listing coverages in the amounts required herein. 1.0.12. Quantities are Approximate The quantities named in the bid-agreement form or separately listed are approximate only, but these are to be used as a basis for the comparison of proposals and to determine the amount of the bonds. However, if a unit price appears to the Owner to be unbalanced to such an extent that changes in actual quantities required under the contract might result in contract price adjustments which would increase payments to the selected Bidder excessively, then the Owner may take such a condition under consideration in making the award of the contract. 1.1. Employment Requirements and Wage Rates 1.1.1. General The award of this contract shall be based in part upon payment by the selected Bidder and his Subcontractors of wage rates not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages for work of a similar character in the locality in which the Work is performed, and not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages for legal holiday and overtime work. The selected Bidder shall comply with all requirements of the prevailing wage law of the State of Texas, Texas Government Code, Chapter 2258, including the latest amendments thereto. The prevailing wage law does not prohibit payment of more than the general prevailing rate of wages. 1.1.2. Records The selected Bidder and each Subcontractor shall keep an accurate record showing the names and occupations of all laborers, workers, and mechanics employed, together with the actual wages paid to each worker. At all reasonable hours, such records shall be open to inspection by the representatives of Owner. 1.1.3. Penalty If the selected Bidder or any Subcontractor fails to comply with the prevailing wage law, he shall forfeit to Owner sixty dollars ($60.00) per day for each laborer, workman, or mechanic who is paid less than the specified rate, pursuant to §2258.023 of the Texas Government Code.

  • 43. 1.1.4. Hours of Labor The selected Bidder shall comply with all requirements of the hours of work on public works defined by Texas Government Code §650.001, including the latest amendments thereto, as an eight (8) hour work day. Violation of this provision is punishable by fine and imprisonment pursuant to §650.003 of the Texas Government Code. 1.1.5. Veterans Preference Pursuant to Texas Government Code, §657.004, the selected Bidder shall give preference in employment to honorably discharged veterans who were engaged in the services of the United States in time of war or conflict and who are and have been citizens of Texas for not less than five (5) years. 1.1.6. Prevailing Wage and Hour Decision Chapter 2258 of the Texas Government Code requires contractors and subcontractors performing work on public works contracts to pay wages at a rate consistent with the rate prevailing in the area. Under federal law, the United State Department of Labor is required to maintain a prevailing Wage and Hour decision for each geographical area. Compliance with the published decision meets the requirements of the Texas Government Code. Additionally, the Davis-Bacon Act and other related federal law requires all contractors and subcontractors performing work on federal construction contracts or federally assisted contracts in excess of $2,000 to pay their laborers and mechanics not less than the prevailing wage rates and fringe benefits for corresponding classes of laborers and mechanics employed on similar projects in the area. If more than $2,000 of federal funds are included in the funding source for this project, then the following provisions apply: 1. If the Wage Decision lists fringe benefits, you must either provide the benefits or pay the hourly equivalent in cash in addition to the predetermined wage. Labor classifications not appearing on the Wage Decision will be deferred to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) for approval. RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 8

These shall be available to the Owner and shall be delivered to the Owner upon completion of the Project. 3.0.4. Cooperation Between Contractors When separate contracts are let within the limits of any one project, each Contractor shall conduct the work so as not to interfere with or hinder the progress or completion of the work being performed by other contractors. The Contractor will afford the other contractors who are parties to such direct contracts (or the Owner, if he is performing the additional work himself), reasonable opportunity for the introduction and storage of materials and equipment and the execution of work, and shall properly connect and coordinate his Work with theirs. If any part of the Contractor's Work depends upon the work of any such other contractor or the Owner for proper execution or results, the Contractor will inspect the work and promptly report any defects or deficiencies in writing to the Owner. Failure to make such a report shall constitute an acceptance of the other work as fit and proper for the Work, except as to defects and deficiencies which may appear in the other work after the execution of his Work. The Contractor will do all cutting, fitting, and patching of his Work that may be required to make its several parts come together properly and fit it to receive or be received by such other work. The Contractor will not endanger any work of others by cutting, excavating, or otherwise altering their work and will only cut or alter their work with the written consent of the Owner. Each Contractor involved shall assume all liability, financial or otherwise, in connection with the Agreement with Owner and shall protect and hold harmless the Owner from any and all damages or claims that may RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 35
  • 71. arise because of inconvenience, delays, or loss experienced by the Contractor because of the presence and operations of other contractors working within the limits of the same project. If the performance of additional work by other contractors or the Owner is not noted in the Contract Documents prior to the Award of the Agreement, written notice thereof shall be given to the Contractor prior to starting any such additional work. If the Contractor believes that the performance of such additional work by the Owner or others involves him in additional expense or entitles him to an extension of the Contract Time, he may make a claim therefore as provided for herein. 3.0.5. Subcontracts The Contractor will not employ any Subcontractor (whether initially or as a substitute) against whom the Owner may have objection, nor will the Contractor be required to employ any Subcontractor against whom he has objection. The Contractor will be fully responsible for all acts and omissions of his Subcontractors and of persons directly or indirectly employed by them and of persons for whose acts any of them may be liable to the same extent that he is responsible for the acts and omissions of persons directly employed by him. Nothing in the Contract Documents shall create any contractual relationship between any Subcontractor and the Owner or any obligation on the part of the Owner to pay or to see to the payment of any moneys due any Subcontractor, except as may otherwise be required by law. The Owner may furnish to any Subcontractor, to the extent practicable, evidence of amounts paid to the Contractor on account of specific work done. 3.0.6. Patent Fees and Royalties The Contractor will pay all license fees and royalties and assume all costs incident to the use of any invention, design, process, or device which is the subject of patent right or copyrights held by others. CONTRACTOR WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE OWNER AND ANYONE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY EMPLOYED BY THE OWNER FROM AND AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY'S FEES) ARISING OUT OF ANY INFRINGEMENT OF SUCH RIGHTS DURING OR AFTER COMPLETION OF THE WORK, AND SHALL DEFEND ALL SUCH CLAIMS IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ALLEGED INFRINGEMENT OF SUCH RIGHTS. 3.0.7. Permits, Laws, Taxes, and Regulations The Contractor will secure and pay for all construction permits and licenses and will pay all governmental and public utility charges and inspection fees necessary for the prosecution of the Work. The Contractor will give all notices and comply with all laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations applicable to the Work. If the Contractor observes that the Specifications or Plans are at variance therewith, he will give prompt written notice thereof to the Owner and any necessary changes shall be adjusted by an appropriate Field Change. If the Contractor performs any Work knowing it to be contrary to such laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations, and without such notice to the Owner, he will bear all costs arising therefrom. The Contractor will pay all sales, consumer, and other similar taxes required by the law of the place where the Work is to be performed, or of the place from which any portion of the Equipment or Materials is obtained. 3.0.8. Availability of Lands The Owner will provide, as indicated in the Contract Documents and not later than the date when needed by the Contractor, the lands upon which the Work is to be done, rights-of-way for access thereto, and such other lands which are designated for the use of the Contractor. Easements for permanent structures or permanent changes in existing facilities will be secured and paid for by the Owner, unless otherwise specified in the Contract Documents. If the Contractor believes that any delay in the Owner's furnishing these lands or providing such easements entitles him to an extension of the Contract Time, he may make a claim therefore as provided herein. The Contractor will provide all additional lands and access thereto that may be required for temporary construction facilities or storage of Materials and Equipment. 3.0.9. Use of Premises The Contractor will confine his equipment, the storage of materials and equipment, and the operations of his workers to areas permitted by law, ordinances, permits, or the requirements of the Contract Documents, and shall not unreasonably encumber the premises with materials or equipment. 3.0.10. Owner's Status During Construction All instructions of the Owner, or its duly appointed representative, to the Contractor shall be issued directly to the Contractor. The Owner will make periodic visits to the site to observe the progress and quality of the executed Work and RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 36
  • 72. to determine, in general, if the Work is proceeding in accordance with the Contract Documents. The efforts of the Owner will be directed toward providing assurance that the completed Project will conform to the requirements of the Contract Documents, but Owner will not be responsible for the Contractor's failure to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents. On the basis of on-site observations, the Owner, or its duly appointed representative, will keep informed of the progress of the Work and will endeavor to guard it against defect and deficiencies. The Owner will have authority to disapprove of or reject Work which is unsatisfactory, faulty, or defective, or does not conform to the requirements of the Contract Documents or does not meet the requirements of any inspection, test, or approval set forth herein. The Owner will also have authority to require special inspection or testing of the Work as provided herein, whether or not the Work is fabricated, installed, or completed. Neither the Owner's authority to act under this subsection, nor any decision made by him in good faith, either to exercise or not exercise such authority, shall give rise to any duty or responsibility of the Owner to the Contractor, any Subcontractor, any of their agents or employees, or any other person performing any of the Work. 3.0.11. Owner's Interpretations and Decisions The Owner will issue with reasonable promptness such clarifications or interpretations (in the form of drawings or otherwise) as may be determined necessary for the proper execution of the Work, such clarifications and interpretations to be consistent with or reasonably inferable from the overall intent of the Contract Documents. If the Contractor believes that a written clarification and interpretation entitles him to an increase in the Contract Price, he may make a claim therefore as provided herein. The Owner will be the interpreter of the terms and conditions of the Contract Documents and the judge of the performance thereunder. 3.0.12. Shop Drawings and Samples After checking and verifying all field measurements, the Contractor will submit five (5) copies of all Shop Drawings to the Owner. The Shop Drawings shall have been checked and stamped with the approval of the Contractor and otherwise identified as required by the Owner. The data shown on the Shop Drawings will be complete with respect to dimensions, design criteria, materials of construction, and the like. The Contractor will also submit to the Owner for his file, all samples required by the Contract Documents. All samples will have been checked and stamped with the approval of the Contractor, identified clearly as to material, manufacturer, any pertinent catalog numbers, and the use for which it is intended. At the time of each submission, the Contractor will provide written notification to the Owner concerning any deviations that the Shop Drawing or sample may have from the requirements of the Contract Documents. The Owner will review the Shop Drawings and samples, but this review shall be only for conformance with the design concept of the Project and for compliance with the information given in the Contract Documents. No Work requiring a Shop Drawing or sample submission shall be initiated until the submission has been delivered to the Owner. The review of Shop Drawings or samples by the Owner shall not relieve the Contractor from his responsibility for any deviations at the time of submission unless the Owner has given written approval to the specific deviation, nor shall any review or approval by the Owner, relieve the Contractor from responsibility for errors or omissions in the Shop Drawings. 3.0.13. Tests and Inspections Required by Law If the Contract Documents, laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, or orders of any public authority having jurisdiction require any Work to be inspected, tested, or approved by someone other than the Owner, the Contractor will give prompt and timely notice of readiness to the Owner. The Contractor will furnish the required certificates of inspection, testing, or approval to the Owner. All such tests will be in accordance with the methods prescribed by the American Society for Testing and Materials or such other applicable organization as may be required by law or the Contract Documents. If any such Work required to be inspected, tested, or approved is covered up without written approval or consent of the Owner, it must be uncovered for observation at the Contractor's expense, if so directed by the Owner. The costs directly attributable to such uncovering, exposure, observation, inspection, testing, approvals and reconstruction shall be borne in full by the Contractor. Any Work which fails to meet the requirements of any such test, inspection, or approval, and any Work which meets the requirements of any such test or approval but does not meet the requirements of the Contract Documents shall be considered defective. Observations by the Owner shall not relieve the Contractor from his obligations to perform the Work in accordance with the requirements of the Contract Documents. RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 37
  • 73. 3.0.14. Contractor's Supervision and Superintendence The Contractor will supervise and direct the Work efficiently and with his best skill and attention. He will be solely responsible for the means, methods, techniques, safety, sequences, and procedures of construction. Before undertaking the Work, he will carefully study and compare the Contract Documents and check and verify all figures shown thereon and all field measurements. He will immediately file a written report to the Owner concerning any conflict, error, or discrepancy which he may discover. The Contractor will be responsible for seeing that the finished Work complies accurately with the Contract Documents. The Contractor shall give constant attention to the Work to facilitate the progress thereof, and he shall cooperate with the Owner and its authorized representatives, including, but not limited to, the Engineer, Resident Project Representative, inspectors, and with other Contractors in every way possible. The Contractor shall have a competent superintendent on the Work at all times who is fully authorized as his/her agent on the Work. All communications given to the superintendent shall be as binding as if given to the Contractor. The Contractor, or his superintendent, shall be capable of reading and thoroughly understanding the Plans and Specifications and shall receive and fulfill instructions from the Owner or its authorized representative. The Contractor will provide competent, suitably qualified personnel to lay out the Work and perform construction as required by the Contract Documents. He will at all times maintain good discipline and order among his employees at the site. 3.0.15. Safety and Protection The Contractor will be responsible for initiating, maintaining, and supervising all safety precautions and programs in connection with the Work. He will take all necessary safety precautions and will provide the necessary protection to prevent damage, injury, or loss to: (a) all employees on the Work and other persons who may be affected thereby, (b) all Work and all Materials or Equipment to be incorporated into the Work, whether in storage on or off the site, and (c) other property at the site or adjacent thereto, including but not limited to shrubs, lawns, walks, pavements, roadways, structures, and utilities not designated for removal, relocation, or replacement in the course of construction. The Contractor will erect and maintain all necessary safeguards as required by the conditions and progress of the Work, including posting danger signs and other warnings against hazards and promulgating safety regulations. He will notify Owners of adjacent utilities, in writing, when prosecution of the Work may affect them. When the use or storage of explosives or other hazardous materials is necessary for the prosecution of the Work, the Contractor will exercise the utmost care and will carry on such activities under the supervision of properly qualified personnel. All damage, injury, or loss to any person or property caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by the Contractor, any Subcontractor, or anyone directly or indirectly employed by any of them or anyone for whose acts any of them may be liable, will be remedied by the Contractor. The Contractor shall comply with the requirements of the Occupational Safety Standards and any other applicable standards that may be set forth by federal, state, municipal, or any other governmental or regulatory agency. The Contractor will designate a responsible member of his organization at the site whose duty shall be the prevention of accidents. This person shall be the Contractor's superintendent unless otherwise designated in writing by the Contractor to the Owner. In emergencies affecting the safety of persons or the Work or property at the site or adjacent thereto, the Contractor, without special instruction or authorization from the Owner, is obligated to act, at his discretion, to prevent threatened damage, injury, or loss. He will give the Owner prompt written notice of any significant changes in the Work or deviations involved. If the Contractor believes additional emergency work by him, which arose from causes beyond his control, entitles him to an increase in the Contract Price or an extension of the Contract Time he may make a claim therefore as provided herein. 3.0.16. Access to the Work and Uncovering Finished Work The Owner and his representatives will at all times have access to the Work. The Contractor will provide proper facilities for such access and observation of the Work and also for any inspection or testing thereof by others. If any Work is covered contrary to the request of the Owner, it must be uncovered for observation and replaced at the Contractor's expense, if requested by the Owner. RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 38
  • 74. If any Work has been covered which the Owner has not specifically requested to observe prior to its being covered, or if the Owner considers it necessary or advisable that covered Work be inspected or tested by others, the Contractor, at the Owner's request, will uncover, expose, or otherwise make available for observation, inspection or testing that portion of the Work in question. The Contractor will furnish all necessary labor, material, and equipment. If it is found that such Work is defective or does not meet the requirements of the Contract Documents, the Contractor will bear all the expenses of such uncovering, exposure, observation, inspection, testing, and professional services. An appropriate Change Order shall be issued deducting all such costs from the Contract Price. If, however, such Work is found not to be defective and meets the requirements of the Contract Documents, the Contractor may request and will be granted an increase in the Contract Price or extension of the Contract Time as compensation, but only for the amount or time directly attributable to such uncovering, exposure, observation, inspection, testing, and reconstruction. 3.0.17. Changes in the Work Without invalidating the Agreement, the Owner may, at any time or from time to time, order additions, deletions, or revisions in the Work as may be necessary or desirable to complete the work originally intended in an acceptable manner. These alterations that are for work within the general scope of the Contract Documents shall be covered by Change Orders issued by the Owner. Upon receipt of a Change Order, the Contractor will proceed with the Work involved. All such Work shall be executed under the applicable conditions of the Contract Documents and as directed by the Owner. If any Change Order causes an increase or decrease in the Contract Price or an extension or shortening of the Contract Time, an equitable adjustment will be made as described herein. The Owner may authorize minor changes or alterations in the Work not involving extra cost and not inconsistent with the overall intent of the Contract Documents. These may be accomplished by a Field Order. If the Contractor believes that any minor change or alteration authorized by the Owner entitles him to an increase in the Contract Price, he may make a claim. Department Directors by approve Change Orders less than $25,000, the City Manger may approve Change Orders less than $50,000 and the City Council must approve all Change Orders $50,000 and greater. No work associated with a Change Order may commence until written approval has been obtained. No contract may be increased by more than 25% of the original value. Commencing work without obtaining proper approvals shall be at the risk of the contractor. Additional work performed by the Contractor without authorization of a Change Order will not entitle him to an increase in the Contract Price or an extension of the Contract Time, except in the case of an emergency as provided herein. The Owner will execute any appropriate Change Order covering changes in the Work the Owner determines to be reasonably necessary. 3.0.18. Changes of Contract Price The Contract Price constitutes the total compensation payable to the Contractor for performing the Work. All duties, responsibilities, and obligations assigned to or undertaken by the Contractor shall be at his expense without change in the Contract Price. The Contract Price may only be authorized by a Change Order. If the Contractor is entitled by the Contract Documents to make a claim for an increase in the Contract Price, his claim shall be made in writing and delivered to the Owner within 15 days of the occurrence of the event-giving rise to the claim. The value of any Work covered by a Change Order or of any claim for an increase or decrease in the Contract Price shall be determined by the Owner in one of the following ways: (a) Where the Work involved is covered by unit prices contained in the Contract Documents, by application of unit prices to the quantities of items involved. (b) By mutual acceptance of a lump sum. (c) By cost and a mutually acceptable fixed amount for overhead and profit, or (d) If required by the Owner, the Contractor shall submit an itemized cost breakdown together with supporting data. RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 39
  • 75. The amount of credit to be allowed by the Contractor to the Owner for any such change which results in a net decrease in cost will be the amount of the actual net decrease as determined by the Owner. When both additions and credits are involved in any one change, the approved overhead and profit shall be figured based on the net increase, if any. 3.0.19. Extra Work Should acceptable completion of the Work require the Contractor to perform an item of work for which no basis of payment has been provided in the original Contract Documents or previously issued Change Orders or supplemental agreements, then same shall be called “Extra Work”. Extra Work that is within the general scope of the Contract shall be covered by written Change Order. Change Orders for such Extra work shall contain agreed unit prices for performing the Change Order work in accordance with the requirements specified in the Change Order, and shall contain any adjustment to the Contract Time that, in the Owner’s opinion, is necessary for completion of such Extra Work. Extra Work that is necessary for acceptable completion of the Project, but is not within the general scope of the Work covered by the original Contract Documents shall be covered by a “Supplemental Agreement”. Any claim for payment of Extra Work that is not covered by written agreement (Change Order or Supplemental Agreement) shall be rejected by the Owner. 3.0.20. Unauthorized Work WORK DONE CONTRARY TO THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE OWNER, WORK DONE BEYOND THE LINES SHOWN OR AS GIVEN IN THE CONTRACT DOCUMENTS, OR ANY EXTRA WORK DONE WITHOUT AUTHORITY, WILL BE CONSIDERED AS UNAUTHORIZED AND WILL NOT BE PAID FOR UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE AGREEMENT. WORK SO DONE MAY BE ORDERED REMOVED OR REPLACED AT THE CONTRACTOR’S EXPENSE. 3.0.21. Neglected Work If the Contractor should neglect to prosecute the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents and progress schedule, the Owner, after three (3) days written notice to the Contractor, may make good such deficiencies, and the cost thereof including compensation for additional professional services shall be charged against the Contractor. A Change Order shall be issued incorporating the necessary revisions in the Contract Documents and including an appropriate reduction in the Contract Price. If the payments then or thereafter due the Contractor are not sufficient to cover such amount, the Contractor will pay the difference to the Owner. 3.0.22. Conformity with Contract Documents All Work, Materials, and Equipment furnished shall be in reasonably close conformity with the lines, grades, grading sections, cross sections, dimensions, material requirements, and testing requirements that are specified (including specified tolerances) in the Contract Documents. If the Owner finds the Materials or Equipment furnished, Work performed, or the finished product not within reasonably close conformity with the Contract Documents but that the portion of the Work affected will, in Owner’s opinion, result in a finished product having an acceptable level of safety, economy, durability, and workmanship, the Owner shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether the affected Work will be accepted and remain in place. The Owner will determine the basis of acceptance and will provide for an adjustment in the Contract Price for the affected portion of the Work. The Owner’s determination and recommended Contract Price adjustments will be based on good engineering judgment and such tests or retests as are, in Owner’s opinion, needed. Changes in the Contract Price shall be covered by a Change Order or Supplemental Agreement as applicable. If the Owner finds the Materials and Equipment furnished, Work performed, or the finished product are not in reasonably close conformity with the Contract Documents and have resulted in an unacceptable finished product, the affected Work, Materials or Equipment shall be removed and replaced or otherwise corrected by and at the expense of the Contractor in accordance with the Owner’s written orders. For the purpose of this subsection, the term “reasonably close conformity” shall not be construed as waiving the Contractor’s responsibility to complete the Work in strict compliance with the requirements of the Contract Documents. 3.0.23. Change of Contract Time The Contract Time may only be changed by a Change Order. If the Contractor is entitled by the Contract Documents to make a claim for an extension in the Contract Time, his claim shall be in writing delivered to the Owner within ten (10) days of the occurrence of the event-giving rise to the claim. All claims for adjustment in the Contract Time shall be determined by the Owner. Any change in the Contract Time RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 40
  • 76. resulting from any such claim shall be incorporated in a Change Order. The Contract Time will be extended in an amount equal to time lost due to delays beyond the control of the Contractor. Such delays shall include, but not be restricted to, acts or neglect by any separate Contractor employed by the Owner, fires, floods, labor disputes, epidemics, abnormal weather conditions, or acts of God. Time limits stated in the Contract Documents are the essence of the Agreement. The provisions of this Section shall not exclude recovery for damages (including compensation for additional professional services) for delay by either the Contractor or the Owner. 3.0.24. Warranty and Guarantee Regarding Defective Work The Contractor warrants and guarantees to the Owner that all Materials or Equipment will be new unless otherwise specified and that all Work will be of good quality and free from faults or defects and in accordance with the requirements of the Contract Documents and of any inspections, test, or approvals referred to herein. All unsatisfactory or faulty Work and all Work not conforming to the requirements of the Contract Documents or of such inspections, tests, or approvals shall be considered defective. Prompt notice of all defects shall be given to the Contractor. All defective Work, whether or not in place, may be rejected. If required by the Owner prior to approval of final payment, the Contractor will promptly, without cost to the Owner, either correct any defective Work, whether or not fabricated, installed, or completed, or remove it from the site and replace it with non-defective Work. If the Contractor does not correct such defective Work or remove and replace such rejected Work within a reasonable time, as required by written notice from the Owner, the Owner may have the deficiency corrected or the rejected Work removed and replaced. All direct or indirect costs of such correction or removal and replacement, including compensation for additional professional services shall be paid by the Contractor, and an appropriate Change Order shall be issued deducting all such costs from the Contract Price. The Contractor will also bear the expenses of making good all work of others destroyed or damaged by his correction, removal, or replacement of his defective Work. Prior to the expiration of one (1) year after the date of Substantial Completion (or such longer period of time as may be prescribed by law or by the terms of any applicable special guarantee required by the Contract Documents), if any Work is found to be defective, the Contractor will, promptly without cost to the Owner and in accordance with the Owner's written instruction, either correct such defective Work, or, if it has been rejected by the Owner, remove it from the site and replace it with non-defective Work. If the Contractor does not promptly comply with the terms of such instructions, the Owner may have the defective Work corrected or the rejected Work removed and replaced, and all direct and indirect costs of such removal and replacement, including compensation for additional professional services, will be paid by the Contractor. In such case, a Change Order shall be issued incorporating the necessary revisions in the Contract Documents, including appropriate reduction in the Contract Price. If the acceptance occurs after approval of final payment, an appropriate amount shall be paid by the Contractor. 3.0.25. Waivers of Claims and Continuing Obligations The Contractor's obligation to perform the Work and complete the Project in accordance with the Contract Documents shall be absolute. Neither approval of any progress or final payment by the Owner, nor the issuance of a certificate of Substantial Completion, nor any payment by the Owner to the Contractor under the Contract Documents, nor any use or occupancy of the Project or any part thereof by the Owner, nor any act of acceptance by the Owner nor any failure to do so, nor any correction of faulty or defective Work by the Owner shall constitute an acceptance of Work not in accordance with the Contract Documents. The Acceptance of Final Payment by the Contractor shall constitute a waiver of all claims by the Contractor against the Owner other than those previously made in writing and still unsettled. 3.0.26. Owner's Right to Stop or Suspend Work The Owner may order the Contractor to stop the Work, or any portion thereof, if the Work is defective, the Contractor fails to supply sufficient skilled workmen or suitable Materials or Equipment or to provide adequate supervision, or if the Contractor fails to make prompt payment to Subcontractors or for labor, Materials or Equipment or for any other similar cause when necessary to protect the integrity of the Work. The Owner may suspend the Work until the cause for the order has been eliminated. No additional Contract Time and no increase in Contract Price will be awarded in this case. The Owner may, at any time and without fault of the Contractor, suspend the Work or any portion thereof for a period of not more than ninety days by notice in writing to the Contractor and the Owner shall fix the date on which Work shall be resumed. The Contractor will resume the Work on the date so fixed. The Contractor will be allowed an increase in the Contract Price or an extension of the Contract Time directly RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 41

Owner's Right to Terminate Owner may, by written notice, terminate this contract in whole or in part at any time, either for the Owner's convenience or because of failure to fulfill the contract obligations. Upon receipt of such notice, services shall be immediately discontinued (unless the notice directs otherwise) and all materials as may have been accumulated in performing this contract shall be delivered to the Owner. (a) If the termination is for the convenience of the Owner, an equitable adjustment in the contract price shall be made, but no amount shall be allowed for anticipated profit on unperformed services. (b) If the termination is due to failure to fulfill the contractor's obligations, the Owner may take over the work and prosecute the same to completion by contract or otherwise. In such case, the Contractor shall be liable to the Owner for any additional cost occasioned to the Owner thereby. (c) If, after notice of termination for failure to fulfill contract obligations, it is determined that the contractor has not so failed, the termination shall be deemed to have been effected for the convenience of the Owner. In such event, adjustment in the contract price shall be made as provided in subsection (a) of this clause. (d) The rights and remedies of the sponsor provided in this clause are in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or under this contract. 3.0.28. Contractor's Right to Stop Work or Terminate If, through no act or fault of the Contractor, the Work is suspended for a period of more than ninety (90) days, or the Owner fails to act as directed in the Contract Documents or fails to pay the Contractor any authorized amount, then the Contractor may, upon seven (7) days written notice to the Owner, terminate the Agreement and recover from the Owner payment for all Work executed, reasonable expenses and profit. In lieu of terminating the Agreement, if the Owner has acted in the previously mentioned manner, the Contractor may upon seven (7) days notice to the Owner stop the Work until he has been paid all amounts then due. 3.0.29. Assignment and Subletting The Contractor agrees to retain personal control and will give personal attention to the fulfillment of this Agreement and will not sublet or assign, by power of attorney or otherwise, said Agreement without the written consent of the Owner. No part or feature of the Work will be sublet to anyone objectionable to the Owner. The subletting of any portion or feature of the Work, or Materials required in the performance of this Agreement, shall not relieve the Contractor from full obligation to the Owner. 3.0.30. Abandonment by Contractor In case the Contractor should abandon the Work and fail or refuse to resume the Work within ten (10) days after written notification from the Owner or if the Contractor fails to comply with the orders of the Owner, when such orders are consistent with the Contract Documents, then, where performance and payment bonds exist, the Surety on the Bonds shall be notified in writing and directed to complete the Work, and a copy of said notice shall be delivered to the Contractor. After receiving said notice of abandonment, the Contractor shall not remove from the Work any machinery, Equipment, tools, Materials, or supplies then on the job, but the same, together with any Materials and Equipment under contract for the Work, may be held for use on the Work by the Owner or the Surety on the performance and payment bonds, or another Contractor in completion of the Work, and the Contractor shall not receive any rental or credit therefore (except when used in connection with Extra Work, where credit shall be allowed as provided in this Agreement), it being understood that the use of such Equipment and Materials will ultimately reduce the cost to complete the Work and be reflected in the final settlement. Where there is no performance and payment bond provided or in case the Surety should fail to commence compliance with the notice for completion provided for, within ten (10) days after service of such notice, the Owner may provide for completion of the Work in either of the following elective manners: (a) The Owner may employ such labor and use such Equipment, tools, Materials, and supplies as the Owner deems necessary to complete the Work and charge the expense of such labor, machinery, Equipment, tools, Materials and supplies to the Contractor. The expense(s) so charged shall be deducted and paid by the Owner out of such moneys as may be due, or that may thereafter become due by virtue of this Agreement. In case such expense is less than the sum which would have been due had the Work been completed by the Contractor, then said Contractor shall receive the difference. In case such expense is greater than the sum which would have been payable under this Agreement, then the Contractor or his Surety shall pay the amount of such excess to the Owner; RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 42
  • 78. Or (b) The Owner may let the Agreement for the completion of the Work under substantially the same terms and conditions provided for in this Agreement. In case of any increase in cost to the Owner under the new agreement, such increase shall be charged to the Contractor and the Surety. However, should the cost to complete be less, the Contractor and his Surety shall be credited with the difference. When the Work shall have been Substantially Completed a complete itemized statement of the contract amounts certified to by the Owner, shall be prepared, and delivered to the Contractor and his Surety, whereupon the Contractor or his Surety shall pay the balance due if any within fifteen (15) days of the date of such Certificate of Completion. In the event the statement of accounts shows that the cost to complete the Work is less than the Contract Price; or when the Contractor or his Surety shall pay the balance shown to be due by them to the Owner, then all machinery, Equipment, tools, Materials or supplies left on the site of the Work shall be turned over to the Contractor or his Surety. Should the cost to complete the Work exceed the Contract Price, and the Contractor or his Surety fail to pay the amount due the Owner within the time designated hereinabove, and there remains any machinery, equipment, tools, materials, or supplies on the site of the Work, notice, together with an itemized list of such equipment and materials, shall be mailed to the Contractor and his Surety. Such property shall be held at the risk of the Contractor and his Surety. After fifteen (15) days from the date of said notice, the Owner may sell such machinery, equipment, tools, materials, or supplies and apply the net sum derived from such sale to the credit of the Contractor and his Surety. Such sale may be made at either public or private sale, with or without notice, as the Owner may elect. The Owner shall release any machinery, equipment, tools, materials, or supplies, which remain on the Work and belong to persons other than the Contractor or his Surety, to their proper Owners. 3.0.31. Abandonment by Owner In case the Owner shall fail to comply with the terms of this Agreement, and should fail or refuse to comply with said terms after the expiration of ten (10) days of receipt of written notification, the Contractor may suspend or wholly abandon the Work, and may remove there from all machinery, tools, and equipment, and all materials that have not been included in payments to the Contractor and have not been wrought into the Work. Thereupon, the Owner shall make an estimate of the total amount earned by the Contractor, which estimate shall include the value of all Work actually completed (at the prices stated in the attached proposal where unit prices are used), the value of all partially completed Work at a fair and equitable price, and the amount of all Extra Work performed at the prices agreed upon, or provided for by the terms of this Agreement, and a reasonable sum to cover the cost of any provisions made by the Contractor to carry the whole Work to completion and which cannot be utilized. The Owner shall then make final statement of the balance due by deducting from the above estimate all previous payments, and all other sums that may be retained by the Owner. Owner shall pay on or before thirty (30) days after the date of notification the balance shown by said final statement as due. 3.1. Worker’s Compensation Insurance Requirements 3.1.1. Definitions Certificate of Coverage ("Certificate") - A copy of a certificate of insurance, a certificate of authority to selfinsure issued by the commission, or a coverage agreement (DWC-81, DWC-82, DWC-83, or DWC-84), showing statutory workers' compensation insurance coverage for the person's or entity's employees providing services on a project, for the duration of the Project. Duration of the Project - includes the time from the beginning of the work on the Project until the Contractor's/person/s work on the Project has been completed and accepted by the Owner. Persons providing services on the Project ("Subcontractor" in Texas Labor Code, Section 406.096) - includes all persons or entities performing all or part of the services the Contractor has undertaken to perform on the Project, regardless of whether that person contracted directly with the Contractor and regardless of whether that person has employees. This includes, without limitation, independent Contractor, Subcontractors, leasing companies, motor carriers, Owner-operators, employees of any such entity, or employees of any entity which furnishes persons to provide services on the Project. "Services" include, without limitation, providing, hauling, or delivering Equipment or Materials, or providing labor, transportation, or other service related to a Project. "Services" does not include activities unrelated to the Project, such as food/beverage vendors, office supply deliveries, and delivery of portable toilets. 3.1.2. Workers’ Compensation Insurance Coverage The Contractor shall provide coverage, based on proper reporting of classification codes and payroll amounts and filing of any coverage agreements, meeting the statutory requirements of Texas Workers’ Compensation Act, Title 5 Subchapter A of the Texas Labor Code for all employees of the Contractor RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 43
  • 79. providing services on the Project, for the duration of the Project. A. The Contractor must provide a certificate of coverage to the Owner prior to issuance of Notice to Proceed. B. If the coverage period shown on the Contractor's current certificate of coverage ends during the duration of the Project, the Contractor must, prior to the end of the coverage period, file a new certificate of coverage with the Owner showing that coverage has been extended. C. The Contractor shall obtain from each person or entity providing services on a Project, and provide to the Owner: (1) a certificate of coverage, prior to that person beginning work on the Project, so the Owner will have on file certificates of coverage showing coverage for all persons providing services on the Project; and (2) no later than seven days after receipt by the Contractor, a new certificate of coverage showing extension of coverage, if the coverage period shown on the current certificate of coverage ends during the duration of the Project. D. The Contractor shall retain all required certificates of coverage for the duration of the Project and for one year thereafter. E. The Contractor shall notify the Owner in writing by certified mail or personal delivery, within ten (10) days after the Contractor knew or should have known, of any change that materially affects the provision of coverage of any person providing services on the Project. F. The Contractor shall post on each Project site a notice, in the text, form and manner prescribed by the Division of Workers’ Compensation, informing all persons providing services on the Project that they are required to be covered, and stating how a person may verify coverage and report lack of coverage. G. By providing or causing to be provided a certificate of coverage, the Contractor is representing to the Owner that all employees of the Contractor who will provide services on the Project will be covered by workers' compensation coverage for the duration of the Project, that the coverage will be based on proper reporting of classification codes and payroll amounts, and that all coverage agreements will be filed with the appropriate insurance carrier or, in the case of self-insured, with the Division of Self-insurance Regulation. Providing false or misleading information may subject the Contractor to administrative penalties, criminal penalties, civil penalties, or other civil actions. H. The Contractor's failure to comply with any of these provisions is a breach of contract which entitles the Owner to declare the contract void if the Contractor does not remedy the breach within ten (10) days after receipt of notice of breach. 3.1.3. Failure to Maintain Adequate Insurance Coverage In the event that Owner learns that Contractor has workers (whether employees, volunteers or contract labor) present at the site or working in any manner on this Project who are not covered at all times by the required coverages for workers’ compensation, Contractor shall be assessed a penalty of $500.00 per day, per worker, until Contractor provides a certificate of coverage which documents the required coverage for such workers. Contractor shall further immediately remove any such workers from the job site. In the event that Owner learns that Contractor has failed to maintain any of the insurance coverages required herein such failure to maintain required coverage shall be taken into account in determining whether Contractor is a responsible bidder for purposes of future proposals made on projects let by Owner. The foregoing remedies shall be in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available at law or in equity to Owner. 3.2. Contract Measurement and Payment 3.2.1. Quantities and Measurements No extra or customary measurements of any kind will be allowed, but only the actual measured or computed length, area, solid contents, number, and weight shall be considered, unless otherwise specifically provided. RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 44
  • 80. 3.2.2. Estimated Quantities The Contract Documents are intended to show clearly all Work to be done and Material and Equipment to be furnished hereunder. Where the evaluation quantities are shown for the various classes of the Work, they are to be used only as a basis for comparing the proposals offered for the Work. It is understood and agreed that the actual amount of the Work to be done and Material and Equipment to be furnished under the Project Agreement will not be reflected by these evaluation quantities. The basis for payment shall be for the actual amount of the Work done and the Material and Equipment furnished under the terms contained within the Project Agreement. Where payment is based on the unit price method, the Contractor agrees that he will make no claim for damages, or anticipated profits on account of any differences which may be found between the quantities of the Work actually done, the Material and Equipment actually furnished under the Project Agreement and the evaluation quantities provided. 3.2.3. Price of Work In consideration of the furnishing of all the necessary labor, Equipment, and Material, and the completion of all Work by the Contractor, and on the completion of all Work and of the delivery of all Material and Equipment embraced in this Agreement in full conformity with the Specifications and stipulations contained within the Contract Documents, the Owner agrees to pay the Contractor the prices set forth in the Bid hereto attached, which has been made a part of this Agreement. The Contractor hereby agrees to receive such prices in full for furnishing all Material, Equipment and all labor required for the aforesaid Work, also for all expense incurred by him, and for well and truly performing the same and the whole thereof in the manner and according to this Agreement and the Contract Documents. The unit prices provided in the Bid shall be the actual unit price for each item when considering the cost of providing all labor, material, equipment, resources, and profit to be recovered by the Contractor for such Work and without consideration of association with any other item of Work. 3.2.4. Partial Payment Estimates The Contractor shall subdivide the Work into component parts in sufficient detail to serve as the basis for progress payments during construction. 3.2.4.1. Deadline On or before the 10th day of each month the Contractor shall prepare a statement showing as completely as practicable the total value of the Work done by the Contractor up to and including the last day of the preceding month. The statement shall be deemed complete and received once all corrections to the Work required by Owner, if any, have been made. The Owner shall submit a recommendation for approval upon completion of all corrections. Failure by the Owner to note corrections prior to payment does not constitute acceptance of the Work nor waive any remedy provided for in the Contract Documents or under law. 3.2.4.2. Payment The Owner shall pay the total amount of the Contractor's statement to the Contractor on or before the 25th day of the then current month, less all previous payments and all further sums that may be retained, withheld, or delayed by the Owner under the terms of this Agreement. 3.2.4.3. Warranty of Title The Contractor warrants and guarantees that clear ownership title to all Work, Materials, and Equipment covered by a Partial Payment Estimate, whether incorporated in the Project or not, will have passed to the Owner prior to making the Partial Payment Estimate free and clear of all liens, claims, security interests, and encumbrances (hereinafter in these General Conditions referred to as "Liens"); and that no Work, Materials, or Equipment covered by a Partial Payment Estimate will have been acquired by the Contractor or by any other person performing the Work at the site or furnishing materials and equipment for the Project subject to an agreement under which an interest therein or encumbrance thereon is retained by the seller or otherwise imposed by the Contractor or such other person. Partial payment retainage by the Owner shall be at the maximum rate prescribed by the laws, rules, or regulations established by the State of Texas and shall in no case exceed five percent (5%). 3.2.5. Approval of Payments The Partial Pay Estimate shall be based on on-site observations of the Work in progress, and shall verify that the Work has progressed to the point indicated; that the quality of the Work is in accordance with the Contract Documents (subject to an evaluation of the Work as a functioning Project upon Substantial Completion, to the results of any subsequent test called for in the Contract Documents and any qualifications stated in the approval); and that the Contractor is entitled to payment of the amount approved. However, by such payment, the Owner shall not thereby be deemed to have represented that he made exhaustive or continuous on-site inspections to check the quality or the quantity of the Work, or that he has RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 45
  • 81. reviewed the means, methods, techniques, sequences, and procedures of construction or that he has made any examination to ascertain how or for what purpose the Contractor has used the moneys paid or to be paid to him on account of the Contract Price. The Owner may nullify any such payment previously requested to such extent as may be necessary to provide protection from loss because: (a) the Work is defective, neglected, or omitted, (b) claims have been filed or there is reasonable evidence indicating the probable filing thereof, (c) the Contract Price has been reduced because of Change Orders or Field Changes, (d) the Owner has been required to correct defective Work or complete neglected Work. (e) unsatisfactory prosecution of the Work, including failure to clean up as required herein. (f) material installation has not been tested as required by the terms of the Contract Documents. 3.2.6. Substantial Completion Prior to final payment, the Contractor may provide the Owner with written certification that the entire Project is substantially complete and request that the Owner issue a certificate of Substantial Completion. Within a reasonable time thereafter, the Owner and Contractor will make an inspection of the Project to determine the status of completion. If the Owner does not consider the Project substantially complete, the Contractor will be notified in writing of the reasons. If the Owner does consider the Project substantially complete, he will prepare a tentative certificate of Substantial Completion which shall fix the date of Substantial Completion and the responsibilities between the Owner and the Contractor for maintenance, etc. Attached to the certificate, there shall be a tentative list of items to be completed or corrected before final payment, and the certificate shall fix the time within which such items shall be completed or corrected, said time to be within the Contract Time. The Owner shall have the right to exclude the Contractor from the Project after the date of Substantial Completion, but the Owner will allow the Contractor reasonable access to complete or correct items on the tentative list. 3.2.7. Partial Utilization Prior to final payment, the Owner shall have the right to take possession of and use any completed or partially completed portions of the Work, notwithstanding the time for completing the entire Work of such portions may not have expired, but such taking possession and use shall not be deemed an acceptance of any Work not completed in accordance with the Contract Documents. If such prior use increases the cost or delays the Work, the Contractor may request in writing, in accordance with the process set forth in these General Conditions, an increase in the Contract Price or extension of the Contract Time, or both as the Owner may determine to be reasonable. 3.2.8. Final Payment Upon written notice from the Contractor that the Project is complete, the Owner and the Contractor will make a final inspection, and the Owner will notify the Contractor in writing of any particulars in which this inspection reveals that the Work is defective. The Contractor shall immediately make such corrections as are necessary to remedy such defects. After the Contractor has completed any such corrections to the satisfaction of the Owner and delivered all maintenance and operating instructions, schedules, guarantees, Bonds, certificates of inspection and other documents, he may request final payment. The final estimate shall be accompanied by such supporting data as the labor and services performed and the material and equipment furnished. In lieu thereof and as approved by the Owner, the Contractor may furnish receipts or releases in full, including an affidavit of the Contractor showing that releases and receipts for all labor, services, Material, and Equipment for which a Lien could be connected with the Work have been paid or otherwise satisfied; and showing consent of the surety, if any, to final payment. If any Subcontractor or supplier fails to furnish a release or receipt in full, the Contractor may furnish a bond satisfactory to the Owner in an amount sufficient to cover any Lien. If, on the basis of observation and review of the Work during construction and the final inspection, the Owner is satisfied that the Work has been completed and the Contractor has fulfilled all of his obligations under the RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 46
  • 82. Contract Documents the Owner will issue written approval and the final estimate will be processed for payment. Otherwise, the Owner will indicate in writing his reasons for refusing to issue payment of the final estimate. If, after Substantial Completion of the Work, final completion thereof is materially delayed through no fault of the Contractor, the Owner shall make payment of the balance due for that portion of the Work fully completed and accepted if the remaining balance for Work not fully completed or corrected is less than the retainage, and, if Bonds have been furnished in accordance with the Contract Documents, the written consent of the surety to the payment of the balance due shall be submitted to the Owner. Such payment shall be made under the terms and conditions governing final payment, except that it shall not constitute a waiver of claims. 3.2.9. Payments Withheld The Owner may, because of subsequently discovered evidence, withhold or nullify payment to such extent as may be necessary for protection from loss because of: (a) Defective Work not remedied. (b) Claims filed or reasonable evidence that the filing of a claim is likely. (c) Failure of the Contractor to make payments properly to sub-contractors for Material, Equipment or labor. (d) Damage to another Contractor. (e) Failure to carry out testing of material installation, if required. When the above grounds are removed, or the Contractor provides a Surety bond satisfactory to the Owner, which will protect the Owner in the amount withheld, payment shall be made. 3.2.10. Delayed Payments Should the Owner fail to make payment to the Contractor of the sum named in any statement when payment is due, or should the Owner fail to issue any statement on or before the date required, then the Owner shall pay to the Contractor, in addition to the sum shown as due by such statement, interest at the rate of six (6%) percent per annum until fully paid. Payment of interest on the amount owed shall fully liquidate any injury to the Contractor growing out of such delay in payment. The right is expressly reserved to the Contractor in the event payments are not promptly made to treat the Agreement as abandoned and recover compensation unless such payments are withheld as otherwise authorized in the Contract Documents. 3.3. Project Requirements 3.3.1. Line and Grade Lines and grades for construction are as directed in the Contract Documents. Any questions, alterations, or adjustments must be directed through the Owner. 3.3.2. Working Day Work on the site shall be done only during the Work Day, except for emergencies or as otherwise approved by the Owner. This Agreement is established with the intent that no Work shall be permitted on weekends or legal holidays except in cases of extreme emergency and then only with the written permission of the Owner. 3.3.3. Character of Employees The Contractor agrees to employ only orderly and competent employees, skillful in the performance of the type of Work required under this Agreement, to do the Work; and agrees that whenever the Owner shall inform the Contractor in writing that any employee or employees are, in its opinion, incompetent or disorderly, such employee or employees shall be discharged from the Work and shall not again be employed on the Work without the written consent of the Owner. 3.3.4. Physical and Subsurface Conditions The Contractor will promptly notify the Owner in writing of any subsurface or latent physical conditions at the site differing materially from those indicated in the Contract Documents. The Owner will promptly investigate those conditions and determine if further surveys or subsurface tests are necessary. Promptly thereafter, the Owner will obtain the necessary additional surveys and tests and furnish copies to the Contractor. If the Owner finds that the results of such surveys or tests indicate subsurface or latent physical conditions differing significantly from those indicated in the Contract Documents, a Change Order shall be issued RFB: CH-01-13/Carpet Replacement Page 47
  • 83. incorporating the necessary revisions. 3.3.5. Reference Points The Owner will establish such general reference points as will enable the Contractor to proceed with the Work. The Contractor will be responsible for the layout of the Work, will protect and preserve the established reference points, and will make no changes or relocations without the prior written approval of the Owner. He will report to the Owner whenever any reference point is lost or destroyed or requires relocation because of necessary changes in grades or locations. The Contractor will replace and accurately relocate all reference points so lost, destroyed, or moved. All utilities shown on drawings are schematic only. The Contractor is solely responsible for verification of existence and location of all utilities within the Project site prior to construction. 3.4. Materials 3.4.1. Materials and Equipment The Contractor shall furnish and pay for all labor, Materials, Equipment, tools, transportation, construction equipment, fuel, power, light, heat, telephone, water, sanitary facilities, and all other incidentals required to complete the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents. All Materials and Equipment used in the construction of the Work shall conform fully to the Contract Documents and be approved by the Owner. Any Materials or Equipment placed before approval of the Owner shall be removed, if directed by the Owner, and replaced with approved Materials or Equipment, at the expense of the Contractor. If required the Contractor will furnish satisfactory evidence as to the kind and quality of Materials and Equipment to be used. If authorized by Owner, the Contractor may use a substitute that is equal to any Material or Equipment specified. No substitute shall be ordered or installed without the written approval of the Owner. All Materials and Equipment shall be applied, installed, connected, erected, used, cleaned, and conditioned in accordance with the instructions of the applicable manufacturer, fabricator, or processors, except as otherwise specifically provided in the Contract Documents. The Contractor shall provide start-up services for all major equipment. 3.4.2. Right of the Owner to Modify Equipment and/or Methods If at any time the methods or Equipment used by the Contractor are found to be inadequate to secure the quality of Work or the rate of progress required under this Agreement, or the working force of the Contractor is inadequate for securing the progress herein specified, the Owner may order the Contractor in writing to improve their character and efficiency, or to increase force or Equipment or both, and the Contractor shall comply with such order. Such authority of the Owner, however, is for the sole benefit of the Owner in order to secure completion in conformity with this Agreement. It shall remain the sole duty and responsibility of the Contractor to take adequate precautions in his operation for the safety of persons and property. No failure of the Owner to notify the Contractor of deficient or negligent methods or Equipment shall excuse or relieve the Contractor of sole liability for damage to the property or improvements of the Owner because of his neglect or omission. 3.4.3. Owner Furnished Materials The Contractor shall furnish all Materials required to complete the Work, except those specified herein (if any) to be furnished by the Owner. Owner-furnished Materials shall be made available to the Contractor at the location specified in the Contract Documents.

The CVCOG provides a service that will add additional digital phone tag information to a 9-1-1 call from City phones. History: Currently, when a City of San Angelo (local government) staff member dials 9-1-1 the emergency responders will arrive at the building address of the 9-1-1 call, not knowing which floor or office placed the call. With the additional phone tag information added to the 9-1-1 call, the responder will know which office within the building placed the 9-1-1 call. Financial Impact: First Year - $2,369 includes onetime setup cost and $569 annual cost Subsequent years - Annual reoccurring estimated cost $569. The 305 service fund has budgeted for the annual reoccurring cost and propose funding the setup charge from the phone system Technology Capital account. Related Vision Item (if applicable): Other Information/Recommendation: Staff recommends the City enter into the interlocal agreement in order to provide more accurate 9-1-1 call response.

Location: 121 West Twohig Avenue, located approximately 300 feet west from the intersection of West Twohig Avenue & South Irving Street, specifically occupying San Angelo Addition, Block 10, the east half of Lot 15 & the west half of Lot 16, in central San Angelo. Purpose: Authorize the City Manager to execute a non-exclusive rightof-way encroachment license agreement with Texas Financial Bank to allow for the above-described improvements to extend within the public right-of-way.

  • 116. PLANTER CUT-OUTS IN THE SIDEWALK OF SAID RIGHT-OF-WAY, AND PROVIDING FOR RELATED TERMS AND CONDITIONS; AND FINDING A PUBLIC PURPOSE AND BENEFIT THEREIN. Summary: The City Council may: Authorize the City Manager to execute a non-exclusive right-ofway encroachment license agreement with Texas Financial Bank to allow for the above-described improvements to extend within the public right-of-way; or Not Authorize the execution of the agreement. Recommendation: City staff recommends authorizing the execution of a non-exclusive right-of-way encroachment license agreement with Texas Financial Bank to allow for the above-described improvements to extend within the public right-of-way. History and Background: Existing Zoning: Central Business District (CBD) Existing Land Use: A financial institution is currently being constructed on the property Surrounding Zoning/Land Use: North: West: South: East: CBD CBD CBD CBD Thoroughfares/Streets: Surface parking lot Offices Area Foundation building Offices & retailing activities West Twohig Avenue is classified as a “local” street" designed to carry lighter, lower speed traffic to collector and arterial streets Special Information Traffic Concerns: The street is designated as a “local street,” which receives minimum traffic at low speeds. Given the characteristics of the street, placement of the wall and planter cut-outs within the public right-of-way at
  • 117. the location in question would not pose a hazard to pedestrians or passing motorists. Analysis: The staff recommendation is based upon the statements listed below. As stated in the attached applicant letter, the contractor and/or subcontractor on the project had set the front building wall too close to the front property line. As such, to stucco and actually finish the wall it is highly likely that there will be an encroachment up to 6 inches into the public right-of-way for the property at 121 West Twohig Avenue. At this point, the only options available to the applicant are to tear down the framing and set it back, as it was permitted originally -or- to have this agreement approved by the council and leave the framing for the wall that has already been placed. All things considered, an encroachment of up to 6 inches of a wall will likely go unnoticed to citizens and the three planter cut-outs would not pose a danger to passersby given the location and very small nature of the encroachments. Buildings are allowed to be built to the front property line in the CBD Zoning district present only in the downtown area. As such, streetscapes and other walkable urban design standards have been applied to this property to make sure it fits in harmony with the area. Since there is no foreseeable immediate danger to the area as a result of this and because this segment of sidewalk is plenty wide to accommodate pedestrians, staff does recommend approval of this request.

  • 136. Summary: The City Council may: 1) Approve the Amendment; or 2) Modify and approve the Amendment; or 3) Deny the Amendment. Recommendation: Planning staff recommends approving the proposed amendment to the Mobile Home Skirting Regulations and Terminology. History and Background: In November of 2011 the Planning Commission heard and approved with conditions case CU 11-16. During this presentation there was some discussion regarding the skirting of mobile or manufactured housing units. The way the ordinance is currently written, all mobile and manufactured homes regardless of the zoning classification they are in, are required be skirted if in place for over 120 days. This would include any dealership selling or displaying these types of homes for perspective buyers. As a result of this discussion with the Planning Commission members, staff has added a clause exempting Mobile and Manufactured Home dealers from this skirting requirement. Skirting is required on mobile homes to ensure consistent development patterns and consistent appearance within San Angelo's neighborhoods. Un-skirted mobile homes appear out of character and stand out in a neighborhood. In addition, leaving the housing unit un-skirted allows for easy access to the underside of the structure by rodents, pests, and other creatures. These types of creatures have a tendency to chew on wires, pipes, and generally speaking do not belong living beneath someone's housing unit. Skirting is essential in helping to keep these creatures away from the underside of manufactured or mobile residential units; in a commercial or industrial trade area this is less of a concern as these homes are for sale and display and not intended or allowed to be lived in under any circumstance. Being forced to skirt homes that are not intended for residential use places an unnecessary hardship on dealers and businesses selling these homes in staff's findings. If the homes are for sale and display at a licensed mobile home dealership, neighborhood character is much less of an issue. Manufactured Home dealerships are classified in the Zoning Ordinance as "Wholesale Trade" and this type of use is allowed in the more intensive commercial and any industrial zoning designations. Placement of this type of land use adjacent to a neighborhood would require a zoning district that is not compatible with the neighborhood and surrounding land uses and is not likely to be recommended by Planning staff. 315.G.4.b of the Zoning Ordinance specifically states that the sales of manufactured homes are classified as wholesale trade, not retail sales
  • 137. and service. This assures that this type of land use will only occur in the more intensive commercial areas and any industrial area within the City Limits. As such the visual impacts of not skirting a manufactured home for sale will not be felt by residential neighborhoods generally speaking.

  • 138. IV. Request for approval of Conditional Use. [Planning Commission makes final decision; appeals may be directed to City Council.] A. CU 11-16: Lucky Seven Enterprises a request for approval of a Conditional Use to allow Wholesale Trade in a General Commercial (CG) zoning district, on the following property: 4100 Ben Ficklin Road, a 3.17 acre parcel situated between Lancer Lane & Ben Ficklin Road, and located roughly 270 feet east from the intersection of Mobile Park Drive and Lancer Lane, out of the South Concho Mobile Home Park, Tract 2, in south central San Angelo. Jesus Vazquez, Planner, came forward to present this request, consistent with the staff recommendation of approval. Five notifications were sent out, with 2 returned in favor and 1 returned in opposition. The subject property is surrounded by CH, CG/CH, and OW to the north and east. To the west and south is RM-1 and RS-1 zoning. A current mobile home park exists to the west of the site and an RV sales use is to the north. The Vision Map component of the Comprehensive Plan calls for ‘commercial’ at this location. The property is currently vacant and undeveloped. Mr. Vazquez reviewed the possible actions on this case. The site does provide an ease of access to the nearby thoroughfare of South Bryant Boulevard. In addition, the wholesale use is consistent with the ‘commercial’ called for at this location. The notification returned in opposition had a concern with the traffic being send northward down South Bryant as there is an existing “blind spot” for traffic at the intersection of Ben Ficklin road. Ben Jenkins asked a question about the requirement in the City Ordinance that mobile or manufactured homes be skirted if left in place for a particular period of time. Staff responded that this requirement is a requirement not of the Zoning Ordinance, but of the general City Ordinance, and was re-iterated within the staff report to make the proponent aware. Joe Grimes asked about the proximity to the residential zoning to the south. Staff explained that the commercial zoning exists today at this location; while not ideal, the nature of this request does not allow for a removal of that zoning designation; however, the chance to hear a Conditional Use request allows the Commission to place any conditions as it deems necessary to make the use more appropriate at that location. Ben Jenkins also asked about the need for curbing. Staff responded that, in situations where subdivisions are required, curbing is generally a requirement of street improvements; however, in the case of a Conditional Use, it is often considered on a case-by-case basis. Particularly if the site is already laid out and buildings in place, there are entry and exit points that are articulated. In this case, it is certainly a possibility – however, because the land is vacant and undeveloped, there is not ultimately knowledge of how the site will develop. Bill Lawrence asked if mobile or manufactured homes could be built or assembled on site, and staff clarified that they could not; this would constitute a manufacturing use which is not allowed in the CG zoning district. Construction work requiring a permit would also not be allowed on the site as it is currently zoned. No one came forward to speak in favor or in opposition to the request. The Commission asked questions about the safeguards in place to prevent individuals for living in these structures. Staff explained the requirement for privacy fence as it is written in the ordinance.
  • 139. Bill Lawrence asked the proponent, Clint Hemby, if the venture would be for new or used mobile or manufactured homes. The proponent indicated that the mobile or manufactured homes would be new, although they would accept trade-ins. The staff pulled up the aerial photos and Mr. Hemby indicated that there would be a main entryexit point midway along the lot, onto Ben Ficklin Road. Sam Tambunga made the point that this location would allow these structures to be moved with the utilization of Loop 306. Motion, to approve as presented, with the additional condition that curbing be added along the frontage of the lot, along Ben Ficklin Road, was made by Ben Jenkins and seconded by Bill Wynne. This curbing may be typical or lay-down curb, with the curb cut as required by City Ordinance. The motion passed unanimously, 6-0.

Lake Nasworthy sub-district concept; b. Lake Nasworthy master plan and implementation strategy. Background: Beginning in June of 2011, the City Council reviewed several items related to Lake Nasworthy; these included: · · · · · an annexation of a now-defunct power plant located in the area; amendments to ordinances regulating areas around Lake Nasworthy, specifically those recreational in nature; the entering into negotiations between the Parks Director and a firm slated to provide an update to the Parks and Recreation Master Plan; the hearing of zone changes in and around the Lake Nasworthy addition; and, discussions of investment in and around the Lake Nasworthy area to capitalize on this asset. In response to these continued discussions of the area, staff put together an RFQ that was published to solicit responses from firms with experience in master planning for areas with value in tourism, recreation, and who understood the unique characteristics of waterfront development.
  • 144. Seven firms submitted packages outlining their qualifications to complete and coordinate such a project. A selection committee consisting of the members listed below reviewed these packages and, based on their scores, narrowed down the list to three finalist groups. · · · · · · Paul Alexander, Council member, SMD 1; Alvin New, Mayor; AJ Fawver, Planning Manager; Shawn Lewis, Director of Community & Economic Development; Elizabeth Grindstaff, Assistant City Manager; and Will Wilde, Director of Water Utilities. Once a “short list” was determined, the three finalist firms were invited for interviews. As a requirement of the interview opportunity, the firms were asked to attend the public meeting being held by the Parks Department to solicit public input for their ongoing update to the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, specifically a discussion of Lake Nasworthy. The following day, interviews were held with each firm and a committee consisting of the members listed below, whose scores were combined to assess the most qualified of the firms. · · · · · · · · · Paul Alexander, Council member, SMD 1; Alvin New, Mayor; Tad Logan, President, Lake Nasworthy Homeowners Association; Tony Villarreal, COSADC; Carl White, Parks Director; Lauren Shrum, Texas Outdoor Consulting (currently conducting the update to the Parks and Recreation Master Plan); and AJ Fawver, Planning Manager; Shawn Lewis, Director of Community & Economic Development; and Elizabeth Grindstaff, Assistant City Manager.

  • 145. On May 14th, Scott Polikov, from Gateway Planning Group, presented the scope and figures which were formulated through negotiations with Planning Manager AJ Fawver. The committee held discussion on the proposal and ultimately recommended that the Council approve and move forward with the approach, citing it as a worthwhile investment. On May 15th, City Council listened to a presentation by Ms. Fawver and Mr. Polikov, and ultimately gave direction to move forward with the proposed approach, scope, and price. The discussion also outlined the intent for this expenditure to come from the Lake Nasworthy fund, specifically. The contract for this project was executed by all parties on September 18th, 2012. The consultant team met with city staff to "kick off" the project on December 19th, 2012. They visited San Angelo to conduct stakeholder interviews March 27th and 28th of 2012, and again April 30th through May 3rd, to meet with internal and external related parties in order to discuss design and identify key areas for consideration. A community breakfast was held the morning of May 1st, and a community evening meeting held May 2nd, to share the work done up to that point and obtain citizen ideas and feedback. They returned to San Angelo June 26th to meet individually with Council members from the current Council, as well as to meet with staff and some external stakeholders. The final draft report and sub-district chapter, the required deliverables for this contract, was presented by the consultant team at the September 17th meeting, for comment and possible direction, at which time no substantial direction was given or action taken. The final draft has been placed on the city's website and social media pages since September, and a final community meeting was held on the evening of October 21st, to give another opportunity for community input on the draft version of the plan documents. On November 5th, the final product will be presented for adoption by the City Council, with the intent of becoming a part of the city's Comprehensive Plan, to guide decisions specific to this area in the future. Related Vision Item: Provide adequate amenities for all neighborhoods. Attract reinvestment. Develop strategic plan for recruitment. Examine liquidation of underutilized City properties.

A copy of the presentation is part of the Permanent Supplemental Minute record. General discussion was held on the time frame for return on investment, opportunities, gateways, insuring plan is in line with the City’s current vision, example of current and past projects, and potential strong development plans. Council recognized the planning document was an expensive project and would be completed over a two year period. Discussion was held on marketing the city, implementing ways to attract people, showcasing the local water resources by truly developing and increasing the economic development; and investing in the process similar to the downtown area investments. Interim City Manager Michael Dane explained the project cost was $298K and the funding source would be allocated from the sale of lake properties. He stated the Lake Nasworthy trust fund and City are allowed to use 90% of the investment for improvements in and around the lake.

Concept # 7 Challenge:Unique Lake Setting with Latent Potential Solution:Lake Nasworthy Catalyst Development Opportunities Concept Description Surrounding Lake Nasworthy are two concept opportunities: Harbor Village and Power Plant Site. Power Plant Site The decommissioned power plant area(shown below in pink) offers an opportunity for the community to see activation of a previously dormant parcel. Taking advantage of the canal and location on the Lake, the site is envisioned to be a mixed use concept with a single family neighborhood, multifamily buildings and a hotel served by neighborhood retail and commercial. Harbor Village The Harbor Village area (shown in red below) is an opportunity to incorporate Mary E Lee Park and a high profile location next to it, and to catalyze activity by creating a mix of uses that could include a marina, hotel and restaurant.

  • 158. Executive Summary L ake Nasworthy is a unique recreation destination for visitors and locals alike that is currently widely used yet also holds potential for further enhancement and investment. Lake Nasworthy is not just a regional recreational lake. It is also a series of neighborhoods. The complexity of its history and ownerships, including various public holdings, ground leases and private owners, necessitates that it be linked through a common vision and strategy. This action plan is a comprehensive summary of the work done on behalf of the City of San Angelo to identify issues and opportunities for a Lake Nasworthy redevelopment strategy. This initiative was driven by input from stakeholders to create a market based plan to promote context sensitive development and preservation at the lake and its surrounding areas. The vision and strategy reflected in this action plan reflects the intersection of a market study to understand the true potential of the lake and its surrounding context as well as the insight of scores of stakeholders representing public institutions, neighborhoods, business owners, recreation advocates, city leaders and other key opinion leaders. What emerged early in the process is that Lake Nasworthy represents an amazing quilt of unique physical areas and multiple organized activities, many of which have already claimed regional and national recognition. This fact is important as this action plan reflects a means to continue the momentum of the lake rather than an effort to impose a contrived concept that ignores the authentic character of the lake and its community. This action plan provides a substantial amount of technical analysis. That analysis is provided, however, to establish the capacity for implementing its findings and recommendations. Those recommendations of fundamentally founded in series of identified character zones that emerged during the planning process from existing and likely geographically based activities. Those character zones include: • • • • • Action Sports Harbor Village Nature/Education Special Opportunity Community Activity DRAFT In the process of studying the lake and engaging the public, these general clusters of activity types emerged around the lake. The consultant team studied the lake based on these five distinct character zones. These areas provide structure and logic to the action plan for Lake Nasworthy. The location of the character zones and their current and anticipated activity are explained in detail in this action plan. Each character zone includes a unique focus but together they create the vibrancy that makes Lake Nasworthy an admired local amenity and regional draw. The popularity of Gun Club Hill Road as a walking and jogging destination is a good metaphor for the latent demand for more structured facilities for activity around that lake. There is more demand for a safe walking and jogging destination near the lake than the street can safely accommodate. Proposed expansion of activity around the lake is supported by market trends, increased activity due to the oil and gas industry, and potential increased regional and national tourism as is being supported by the San Angelo Convention and Visitors Bureau. The City Council and San Angelo Planning staff has sought an outcomes focused strategy. The desired outcome of this initiative is to encourage the activity and development to ensure the long term viability of Lake Nasworthy as a recreation destination in west Texas. This outcome is achieved by identifying existing tourism and recreation activities and enhancing those offerings thereby creating economic development opportunities. This enhancement is outlined as a comprehensive policy and approach that will encourage the type of development the community has deemed appropriate. This includes potential ‘catalytic projects’—or appropriate development in key locations— that will provide a necessary influx of economic activity yet still fit within the context of what already exists at the lake in order to create sustained investment momentum. Fundamentally, the resulting master plan and implementing recommendations are supported by extensive public outreach and a market study that reinforces the amazing quilt that makes up the lake today and its potential tomorrow.

Public Participation DRAFT Recreational Activity Popularity or Preference Input and Outreach Process To reconcile the many uses and diverse interests that surround Lake Nasworthy, extensive community outreach and input was undertaken. Lake Nasworthy poses itself as a unique opportunity area, not only as a water source in West Texas, but also for its percentage of city owned land. The Lake Nasworthy Trust Fund, created by the city, cannot be utilized without citizen approval. The restriction of citizen approval has made community feedback an integral piece of this project. In order to fully understand the residents’ perspective regarding Lake Nasworthy, stakeholder interviews were conducted to assist in framing the action plan’s focus. The consultant team learned from stakeholders how important Lake Nasworthy is not only to those who live on the lake, but also to the larger community. City staff assisted the consultant team in compiling a list of stakeholders that consisted of a diverse group of recreational users, homeowners, politicians, and business owners. Over 40 stakeholders were contacted and interviewed through a series of small group meetings. After the initial round of interviews, the consultant team worked with city staff to follow up with outreach to all lake residents via post card mailing. During the subsequent small group meetings, 20 additional stakeholders were engaged for feedback. The consultant team used a coding system to translate the notes and feedback into data to create measurable results. Stakeholders Involved There are a variety of stakeholders surrounding the lake representing numerous interests and users from San Angelo and beyond. The discussions focused on current and future demand, ecological concerns and economic development opportunities. This input provides the basis for the proposed amendments to the San Angelo Comprehensive plan and an implementation strategy to achieve this action plan. Summary of Stakeholder Input Over the course of public outreach, it was a surprise to learn about the vast amount of activities that take place in and around the lake (see Figure 1). Activities were broken down into non-motorized upland activities and motorized and nonmotorized water sports. The information from this figure is based on stakeholder input from actual participants in each of the activities, or from those who mentioned the popularity surrounding the activity. Once the initial input was obtained from stakeholders, areas of the lake were identified deserving greater attention. This process generated the five character zones.

Throughout the process of gathering feedback, a variety of ideas were noted. Figures 2-4 display the ranges in feedback and the diversity in information collected. Figure 2 demonstrates the challenges and assets surrounding Lake Nasworthy. The density of tick marks indicates comments about that particular issue. Uncertainty of water levels was mentioned by almost everyone. The end of the spectrum represents the amount of activity on the lake as an asset. Figure 3 was created based on stakeholders input on potential development and lake improvements. These developments and improvements are demonstrated on a scale between public and private. The topic mentioned the most was restroom improvements. Stakeholders mentioned most of the public facilities surrounding Lake Nasworthy needed updates and improvement. The stakeholder meetings yielded the need for greater access to current areas being used. Figure 4 was created to give more depth to this topic. The figure depicts a spectrum of low-impact and high-impact means of mobility. For example, stakeholders discussed creating better access around the lake by way of a comprehensive trail system. Gun Club Hill is the second area of highest concern for the citizens; this area has become quite popular as a walking loop trail. The popularity surrounding the use of this area is an issue that was heavily considered when creating potential design concepts. An integrated trail network was also an issue frequently mentioned that resulted in design considerations in the proposed master plan.

  • 164. Assessment of Conditions DRAFT Lake Nasworthy Study Area Map I n order to create an action plan that is realistic and realizable, the consultant team delved into the myriad of details and data that make up the complexity of the lake and its surroundings. Map of Study Area and Description The Lake Nasworthy study area is located in the far southwestern quadrant of San Angelo near the San Angelo Regional Airport, Goodfellow Air Force Base, Twin Buttes Reservoir and Bentwood Country Club. The Lake is bisected by Knickerbocker Road and State Highway 306 is approximately one mile to the Northeast. From the lake’s downstream edge, the Concho River flows southeast through downtown San Angelo. Natural Structures Lake Nasworthy was created in 1930 when Nasworthy Dam was constructed to store the waters of the Spring Creek and South and Middle Concho Rivers to provide drinking water for the City of San Angelo and surrounding areas. The Lake is full at 1,879 feet above sea level and is 29 feet deep at its deepest point with a surface area of 1,380 acres. In most conditions Lake Nasworthy is near constant level due to overflow from Twin Buttes Reservoir. Due to persistent drought, however, that flow is becoming increasingly unreliable. The study area offers a wide variety of West Texas landscapes. The unique feature of a large body of water in an arid climate provides for an interesting physical environment that contributes to the natural beauty and a draw for recreation. The lake is unique in the history and makeup of the land ownership surrounding the Lake. The lake is accessed from several public boat ramps and public parks. Major Existing Uses/Users Lake Nasworthy is surrounded by an eclectic mix of large Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 7

The Bureau of Land Management Twin Buttes Reservoir, the Air Force San Angelo Regional Airport, Goodfellow Air Force Base, and Angelo State University are large users near the lake. The large users create an interesting combination of uses and represent an opportunity for synergy rather than ad hoc interests. Lake Nasworthy is surrounded by several institutional land owners who are sizable stakeholders as well as numerous land owners and leaseholders of single family homes. When the lake was created much of the surrounding land was retained by the Bureau of Land Management and later turned over to the city. The City then subdivided the land into parcels that were leased to home owners. Later the decision was made to sell the lots rather than lease them as the lease terms came up for renewal. The money raised from the sale of the land is put into a trust that is specifically dedicated for use on lake improvements and management. The history of this land lease/sale arrangement has lead to the unique ownership pattern and management situation that is currently in place. Over time most of the land has become owner occupied. 8 Relation to Prior Studies Comprehensive Plan The latest update to the San Angelo Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009, provides a vision for the city through a series of sub-districts that are targeted for redevelopment. Each one of these sub-districts focuses on an area with a unique development context. Together the sub-districts help achieve the City mission to maintain the “small-town character and community spirit, and take advantage of ample social, cultural and recreational opportunities.” A parallel deliverable to this report on Lake Nasworthy is creation of a sub-district to update to the 2009 comprehensive plan. The updated Lake Nasworthy sub-district chapter will act as a tool to implement the vision and concepts described later in this action plan. Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan The San Angelo Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan adopted in 2012 is a valuable companion to this report in its attention to the condition and recommendation of public spaces surrounding Lake Nasworthy.
  • 166. Assessment of Conditions The goal of the parks master plan was to assess park and recreation facilities throughout the city and to establish planning guidelines for parks over the next decade. That plan contains a through inventory of parks and recreation facilities and details on their programming, marking, reservation systems and fees. There is also valuable data on the recreation habits of the San Angelo population. That plan recommends creating multi modal linkages between and through parks, a theme that is found in this report as well as the San Angelo Comprehensive Plan. This can be accomplished through linear parks, trails and paths as explained later in this document. That plan includes a particular focus on the Lake Nasworthy parks – as they are a tremendous asset to resident and visitors. The main Lake Nasworthy Parks are: Knickerbocker Park, Mary E. Lee Park, Middle Concho Park, Spring Creek Park, and South Concho Park. The Park Master Plan contains details on what are some current issues in the parks and some suggested improvements. The detailed plans include existing and potential trail connections. Those trails were integrated in to the trail plan delineated later in this action plan. Resource Management and Environment Issues Lake Nasworthy is a heavily used manmade lake and, therefore, there are resource management and environmental issues likely to be encountered as the city moves forward to improve and enhance the lake and surrounding lands. The exact issues will depend on the specific improvements undertaken; however, based on public comments, three potentially significant issue areas have been identified: (a) lake dredging, (b) shoreline erosion/storm water management and (c) lake water-level management. Lake Dredging During the stakeholder input process, the public expressed considerable concern about the increasingly shallow water depths in Lake Nasworthy and many suggested the city take action to dredge and deepen the lake. Dredging practices are subject to extensive federal and state regulatory oversight. In 2002, the city completed a two-year dredging project to remove 3.8 million cubic yards of sediment from the lake, increasing the lake’s capacity by about 2,500 acre-feet or some 800 million gallons. This project cost approximately $10 million and was funded with revenues from the 1999 section Type 4B one-half cent sales tax. Similar dredging actions are likely to be necessary to maintain water depths and lake capacity in the future, notwithstanding a lack of DRAFT identified funding sources for those activities. A focus on erosion control below can provide some opportunity to offset the costly need for dredging. Details on the regulatory implications of lake maintenance are included in the implementation section of this report. Shoreline Erosion and Storm Water Management As the city considers potential improvements along Lake Nasworthy, it is necessary to carefully consider and account for the potential for increased shoreline erosion and storm water runoff. Erosion is a critical concern because not only does it cause land loss to upland owners – a significant issue in itself – but also it adds to the sediment load in the lake, decreasing water depths and increasing water turbidity. Shoreline erosion is a natural process that can be exacerbated by human activities. Along Lake Nasworthy, shoreline erosion is likely attributable to wind-driven and boat wake waves impacting unprotected or exposed shoreline sediments, storm water runoff, and periodic fluctuations of lake levels that inundate near shore areas and remove shoreline sediments as lake levels drop. Clearing natural vegetation and constructing impervious surfaces along the lake shoreline can also exacerbate erosion, runoff and lake sedimentation. Vegetation removal is typically undertaken to create recreational space, increase areas available for development, or expand or enhance lake views. If poorly planned, this practice can destabilize shorelines and sediments, increasing erosion and lake sedimentation. Construction of impervious structures such as driveways, parking areas, and buildings along the lake can also be detrimental. Impervious surfaces increase the velocity and energy of storm water runoff, causing shoreline retreat, lake sedimentation, and adversely impact water quality. Accordingly, as additional development occurs, including particular projects proposed in this action plan, a comprehensive erosion control plan should be developed. In general, shoreline erosion response practices fall into two broad categories: (1) non-structural methods, and (2) structural or shoreline armoring methods. Non-structural erosion stabilization options typically rely on installation or maintenance of natural vegetation. Healthy shoreline vegetation provides effective resistance against light to moderate wave action. Plant stalks break up wave energy and roots stabilize shoreline soils, reducing erosion and mass sediment movement. Shoreline vegetation also Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 9
  • 167. DRAFT slows surface water runoff, assisting in water absorption, reducing erosion and lake sedimentation. Healthy shoreline plant communities also enhance scenic views and provide fish and wildlife habitat. Replanting or expanding shoreline vegetation is often the simplest and most cost effective solutions where erosion forces are low to moderate. Well-designed shoreline armoring structures such as bulkheads, riprap, and revetments are generally very effective in reducing or preventing shoreline erosion. However, many such methods are expensive and can have detrimental environmental consequences, including increase erosion rates on adjoining properties that are not armored. Unlike vegetation which absorbs and dissipates wave energy, hard structures reflect and refract wave energy and can cause extensive scour. Structural failure can occur if bulkheads are repeatedly overtopped and tieback systems can fail. Sloped rock revetments are generally preferable to vertical bulkheads, as they tend to dissipate or absorb wave energy, rather than redirect it to adjoining lots. As development along Lake Nasworthy expands, the city may face greater public demand for shoreline armoring solutions. Care must be taken as expanded use of armoring reduces natural shoreline conditions and can detrimentally impact aquatic habitat and water quality. Recently, many lake communities are beginning to experiment with what are called “biotechnical methods” of shoreline stabilization. This approach seeks to combine structural and non-structural methods, incorporating, for example, gabion structures and installation of shoreline plant materials or detached log breakwaters. By reducing the severity of wave energy or attack on the shoreline, this method seeks to create conditions where shoreline vegetation can be established and function to reduce shoreline retreat or loss. By incorporating structural elements, this method can expand the use of “soft” or non-structural elements in areas of high wave energy or severe erosion, minimizing environmental impacts and providing stability within the system. A biotechnical approach is suitable for a widerange of erosion conditions and commonly used to prevent surface erosion and shallow mass-movement of soil. As the city considers future shoreline and storm water management actions, the potential negative impacts of shoreline armoring on fisheries, water quality and other environmental values should be carefully weighed. As 10 with potential dredging actions, the complexity, cost and importance of shoreline and storm water management practices should be carefully evaluated through a detailed technical feasibility and engineering analysis before actions are proposed or authorization for the actions is sought. Water Level Management During the stakeholder and public input processes, concern was expressed regarding the current drought conditions in west Texas and whether water levels in Lake Nasworthy could be maintained over the long run. Commenter’s noted that plans to enhance or expand lakeside amenities and development effectively assume that lake water levels can be maintained at a reasonably consistent level over time. Public concern regarding lake levels is not unwarranted. According to the Texas Water Development Board, presently all three reservoirs in the San Angelo area are at extremely low levels: O.C. Fisher Reservoir – 0.8% capacity, O.H. Ivie – 17.3% capacity, and Twin Buttes – less than 3% capacity, with some reports showing 0% capacity. Lake Nasworthy captures stream-flow from the Middle Concho River immediately downstream of Twin Buttes Reservoir. The South and Middle Concho rivers flow into Twin Buttes, then into Lake Nasworthy, which is intended to be maintained at a constant level using managed flows from Twin Buttes. However, due to declining water levels in Twin Buttes, natural flow from the reservoir to Lake Nasworthy has all but stopped at the present time, forcing the city to pump water to reduce losses and sustain lake levels. Currently, Twin Buttes contains approximately 5,324 acre-feet of water or about 3 percent of its capacity. Lake Nasworthy presently stores about 7,774 acre-feet, or about 76 percent of its capacity. By pumping water from the south to the north pool of the Twin Buttes Reservoir, the city seeks to reduce the surface area of Twin Buttes and conserve drinking water by limiting evaporation. The water transfer has also helped maintain water levels in Lake Nasworthy. In recent years, historic drought conditions and increased water demand to serve municipal, agricultural, and oil and gas development needs have combined to stress water resources in west Texas. There is little question that in the near-term, maintaining adequate water resources will continue to be a significant challenge in west Texas and a high priority for the city, its water department, and the residents and visitors who enjoy Lake Nasworthy.
  • 168. Market Analysis L ake Nasworthy is a unique location in a changing area. The lake itself attracts increasing demand as one of the few recreational lakes in the region. In addition, the growth in the larger market due to the impact from shale energy extraction creates development pressures that could be harnessed to the benefit of the long term investment needs of Nasworthy. It is in this context that a market study was undertaken. With a special focus on natural resource and recreation uses, an initial market study was undertaken. After substantial stakeholder input and planning, a refined and focused study was then executed. The market analysis shows a strong demand for a variety of activities associated with the lake and long term development around the lake related directly and indirectly to those activities. The analysis below establishes the demographic and market factors. The market demand is then presented in the context of the character zones in the following section. It is important to note that the often challenging ability to secure and maintain hotels and restaurants at recreational DRAFT lakes could be obviated by the strong general demand for hotels in the region. One of the catalytic projects described below includes the potential for a mixed use hotel or two at the lake. Market Area Demographics The following market analysis uses demographics and statistics from a Primary Market (Core Market) that represents the local “everyday” market and includes the City of San Angelo and the Secondary Market that represents the visitor market and includes Odessa-Midland and Abilene-Sweetwater.

The majority, more than seventy70 percent traveled in Texas for leisure, and 30 percent for business. Texas had the 3rdlargest share of domestic visitation in the U.S. Top visitor origin markets for Texas include California, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Illinois, Florida, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, New Mexico and Indiana. 2012 was a strong year for tourism in Texas with all indicators showing positive growth in visitation, economic impact and hotel performance. Texas hotels collected an estimated $8.1 26 billion in revenues in 2012, an increase of 10 percent over the previous year More than 90 million room nights were sold statewide, with occupancy rates increasing 2.8 percent points to 62.3 percent. The booming oil and natural gas activity, particularly in the nearby Cline Shale is placing growth pressures on San Angelo. Although the city itself is not the site of much exploration, it is one of the larger cities in the region and serves as a hub for service companies and temporary oilfield workers, executives and families of those employees. Lake Nasworthy provides recreation opportunities for the influx of new workers, and appropriate means and facilities to entertain, serve and house them are essential for the future of San Angelo.
  • 184. Market Analysis DRAFT San Angelo Hotel Market In San Angelo, as in many towns in oil country, hotels are facing greater demand during the week from employment than on the weekends. This inversion in demand opens up the opportunity to explore hospitality development opportunities that can serve current employment while also fulfilling a maturing tourism demand. This can hedge any risk of decline in employment demand by being oriented to the Lake and recreation by providing short term support on new facilities, and building a long-term reputation for lake recreation. Areas closely related to oil and gas production (O&G counties) showed a 15.7 percent revenue gain in 2012, and accounted for 56 percent of the state’s total revenue gain (from 38 percent of the stateroom supply). The 62 percent of room supply in non-O&G counties generated a modest but healthy 7 percent revenue gain for 2012. Room-nights sold in Oil & Gas areas garnered real growth of 8.5 percent while non-O&G balance of Texas showed 4.7 percent. In the Fourth quarter, O&G revenues achieved +15.7 percent and non-O&G areas +7 percent. Year-over-year, lodging performance measures are now stabilizing at healthy growth levels after a three year recovery period. Occupancy levels are above 60 percent and average daily rates are growing at a healthier 3.8 percent pace, aiding significant RevPar improvement. Supply additions remain well below gains in room-nights sold. With 2012 RevPar reaching $55.83 (equal to 2008), and occupancy slightly above long-term averages, overall new hotel development projects will likely commence selectively.

The following demand estimates are based only on the new additional room demand from recreation and leisure activities that will be offered around the lake and conservatively assumes one visit per year. It is based on the population figures from the visitor markets. In comparison the proposed two new hotel facilities will create the following additional room and room night supply. Restaurant Local Market In 2011 households in San Angelo spent on average $2,340 for food away from home which accounts for 4.7 percent of the household budget. In total households in San Angelo spent $86,290,000 in this category. The following graphs detail number of visits, type of restaurant visited, for what reason and the day of visits to a restaurant.

The following graphs detail number of visits, type of restaurant visited, for what reason and the day of visits to a restaurant. Assuming the out of town visitor numbers from the hotel demand estimates and an average spending of $27 per person for food and beverage per day the additional visitation to Lake Nasworthy could create roughly $ 5million in new spending potential for restaurants, fast food restaurants and bars. Regional Tourism Demographics The number of Person-Stays to the Big Bend Region, which San Angelo would be considered a part of, was estimated at 6.17 million in 2011, and the volume of Person-Days was estimated at 15.42 million. The Big Bend Region’s share of total Person-Days to Texas is the smallest out of the 7 main Texas tourism regions. Leisure visitors share essentially all of the demographic characteristics with the typical U.S. household, showing similar proportions by age category, presence of children in the home, by life stage, and by Generation. In household income, the Big Bend Region shows a wealthier distribution in its travel base, attracting more visitors in the $75,000+ range (54 percent)and fewer in the under-$50,000 range (33 percent)than the U.S. average. The average traveler has a household income of $86,520. About one third of the regions visitors include children in their households. The greatest proportion of the regions visitors are in the 18-34 age category and the average visitor to is 44 years old. Type of Trip and Spending Of all visitors to the region 49 percent are leisure visitors. Non-Vacation leisure visitors (37.5 percent) coming to the region to visit friends and relatives (VFR) comprise about one‐quarter of the leisure visits by trip purpose. Of the vacation leisure visitors (11.5 percent) 5.7 percent are on a weekend getaway and 5.8 percent are enjoying general vacations. The remaining 51 percent of visitors to the region are on business trips – 9.9 percent visit the region for a meeting or conference while the majority (41.1 percent) visits the region to conduct business such as construction, repair, client services or sales. The average per person per day spending is $129.60 of which most is for transportation (34.9 percent) due to increased fuel costs followed by food (20.8 percent) and accommodations (16.9 percent).

  • 191. DRAFT Travel Party Composition and Activities The largest travel party type in the region is one male only with 43.9 percent followed by couples that make up 21.6 percent. Couples with children account only for 6.1 percent of all travel parties in the region. This comes as no surprise since the majority of travel is for business reason and only a quarter of all travel parties are households with children – the average travel party size is 1.66. The region’s most popular activities for visitor are culture (12 percent) including historic sites, concerts and plays, festivals and museum visits. This is followed by nature related activities (8.6 percent) such as visiting National or State Park, hiking/ biking, visit a lake, eco tourism and camping. Outdoor sports are the least favorite activities. Big Bend Region/San Angelo Tourism Summary Length of Stay The average length of stay is 2.61 days. The average length of overnight stays is 4.04 nights. Day trips make the majority with 43.3 percent, 1-3 night stay make up 42.5 percent followed by 4-7 night stays with 10 percent and 8+ night stays with 4.2 percent. Economic changes seem to be affecting travel behavior for the state. Illinois’ visitors historically tend to drive longer distances for their leisure travel, but 2008 brings in more drivers closer to home as the average one-way distance traveled by auto is at a five-year low of 136 miles in part because of the higher fuel costs. • Leisure travel represented 49 percent of Person-Days to ■■■ • Texans generated 61.7% of Person-Days to the Big Bend Region; Non-Texans 38.3% • Top 3 Texan origin DMAs: 1.

  • 192. Master Plan T he Lake Nasworthy master plan was crafted based on the information summarized in the previous sections of this report. Evaluation of the existing context, incorporation of stakeholder input, consideration of physical realities, and evaluation of market realities were fused together to inform the master plan. DRAFT Lake Nasworthy Area Master Plan Figure 45 shows the five character areas – physical and artificial boundaries separate the areas that contain areas of similar use or characteristics. Lake Nasworthy Area Master Plan Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 35
  • 193. DRAFT Zone 1: Action Sports Market Potential by Character Zone Each character zone incorporates and builds on existing activities to maximize market opportunities. The various zones have different magnet attractions and seasonality which indicate whether zones are likely to be active enough to support facilities like food and beverage, hospitality, and other support elements for the guest experience. Zone 1: Action Sports Programming for this zone includes: • Boat Races (Drag Boats, Remote Controlled Boats) • Wake Boarding • Archery 36 • Mountain Biking • Trail Running • Camping (RV,Tent) In this zone, the boat races will require peak loading for special events that while built into the design, do not negatively impact the day to day use of the area for the other magnet attractions. All have enthusiastic aficionados who will come to the site to engage in them and have few other places in the areas where they can do so as well. Therefore all are technically magnet attraction elements. Their relative demand and popularity are projected in figure 47 in this section.
  • 194. Master Plan The San Angelo climate allows for three season boating, wake-boarding, archery, mountain biking, trail running and camping – all, weather permitting, can be enjoyed year round. Boating and wake-boarding may be the crown jewels among the magnets in this cluster as they require a lake or wide river and can be done most rarely in west Texas. Therefore, if one wants to engage in this activity in the region, he or she has to come to the lake to do it. As Figure 47 suggests, boating and wakeboarding may capture the most enthusiasts of the activities in this zone (assuming sufficient capacity for both). It’s interesting that there may be more wakeboarding demand than boating. However there are underwater mechanical wakeboarding systems that eliminate the need for a boat and some wakeboarding is just a simpler version of surfing. All of these activities skew toward the younger age cohorts except for archery and camping. The existing San Angelo archery facility is admirably targeted to a family audience which can make it a lifelong sport. If successful, this will change the typical profile of the sport which indicates that most participants are young. DRAFT Mountain biking, running, jogging, and trail running all rely on the same thing – a trail system – however different kinds of trails are needed. Trail running and mountain biking can share a similar trail. The others prefer a more finished and flatter trail. There is no good way of projecting trail running demand at this time but the projections for mountain biking and running offer insight. Both would significantly top trail running, an elite form or running. It is estimated that it would be 15,000 to 30,000 a year, about a quarter to a half of the other two similar activities. Several key youth populations at the Air Force base and the university are likely to contribute to this group. These activities are generally engaged in year-round by people who bring their own supplies with the exception of campers. Campers typically require some type of a camp store. The exception will be the need to supply enthusiasts who come for the boating and other events. Temporary human services infrastructure from food to restrooms will be needed.

  • 195. DRAFT Zone 2: Harbor Village Zone 2: Harbor Village • Programming for this zone includes: • Marina • Beach • Restaurants • Hotel • Sailing School/Electric Boat Rental • Triathlon Staging Area • Splash pad • Party Boats The proposed activities for this zone include a number of magnet or destination elements including a reinvented marina and destination restaurant. The marina, which will 38 be a three season facility, and the year-round restaurants, which must be on the water to distinguish them from other restaurants in town and justify the drive past others to this location, are viable if coupled with a appropriately programmed and designed hotel. The key for the hotel will be water views and convenient water access, which is why well designed adjacency to the marina and the beach are critical. In addition, the magnet destination elements could include: the waterborne version of the restaurants – the party boats – that are likely to be active in the summer as well as spring and fall weekends, the beach and splash pads which will be unique (like the boating) in the region and be magnet
  • 196. Master Plan destinations through the summer into the weekends of the spring and fall like the party boats, the triathlon staging area and sailing schools differ from the others as program that may use the other proposed elements for staging and be an event experience in the case of the triathlon and a programming experience likely to be administratively connected to the marina in the case of the sailing school. This zone will be the commercial heartbeat of the lakefront with a hotel and restaurant, probably at least one gift shop, the party boat or boats, and berths and boat launches and boat rentals for one of the lakes most popular activities, boating, and the best place to actually swim/use the splash pad on the lake. In time, the addition of some other commercial elements often found on beaches with commercial orientation like mini-golf and perhaps a seasonal carnival can be anticipated unless these are developed in Zone 3. Parking management will be critical for this zone during peak demand times – a famous issue at beaches. Plans should at least one “walk-to” gravel parking lot and a swing set of handicapped parking spaces that can vary depending on anticipated demand for parking (more spaces close to the beach/activity center during peak times). Hotel Market • Occupancy rates in San Angelo grew from 58% in 2010 DRAFT to 73% in 2012 (78% 1st quarter of 2013) • San Angelo currently has a room night supply of 713,940. Based on available room nights and the last years occupancy rate 521,176 room nights were sold • Based on a market share of 25% of the visitor market assuming only one visit per year an additional estimated room night demand of 137,391 would be created (not including demand for business travelers). • A 250 room resort type hotel would add 91,250 available room nights and would sell 70,900 room nights based on the current occupancy rate. Restaurant Market • In 2011 households in San Angelo spent on average $2,340 for food away from home which accounts for 4.7% of the household budget. • In total households in San Angelo spent $86,290,000 in this category • In 2011 households in visitor market spent on average $2,520 for food away from home which accounts for 4.7% of the household budget. • In total households in the visitor markets spent $684,230,000 in this category • With $27 spending per person for food and beverage per day by out of town visitors the additional visitation to Lake Nasworthy could create roughly $5 million in new spending potential for restaurants.

  • 197. DRAFT Zone 3: Nature/Education Zone 3: Nature/Education Programming for this zone includes: • Nature Center • Family Entertainment Center (FEC) Both the nature center and the FEC concepts are magnets for this zone. There is some seasonality possible although many sunbelt zoos and nature centers are busiest not in the summer but the spring and fall when the temps are more moderate for what is typically seen as an outdoor attraction. The nature center/FEC concept is to offer residents and visitors: an introduction to the local ecology through a visitors center and high quality exhibits and likely a small theater 40 for film presentations, a small educational and entertaining zoo experience done in cooperation with one of the larger metro zoos in Texas (one that would appreciate a west Texas outpost) with state-of-the-art animal feeding programs for visitors, and a small array of fun and entertaining experiences that will interest the youth market and bring in financial support for the overall management/ownership entity as nature centers and zoos are typically non-profits. To raise revenue and keep adolescents coming back to visit (often with younger siblings) mini-zoos today can offer a broad array of entertaining and overnight experiences. Among the entertaining experiences are mini-golf, small
  • 198. Master Plan rides, carousels, electric go-karts, ball pits, discovery digs, gondola rides, zip lines, ropes courses and other experiences. There are many smaller communities across the US that currently run successful nature centers and mini-zoos. If developed in San Angelo it is likely that this would be the leading attraction in attendance within a few years as zoos typically have the highest attendance in communities. That will, however, not be a threat to other well-regarded and established facilities in town like the art museum as zoos tend to skew youth ward in age appeal while art and cultural attractions tend to draw adults and youths with a different set of interests. Summer and weekend camp programs should be built into the planning for this facility. It may turn out that many of the active uses proposed for this lakefront park facility will also spawn summer and learn-to programs. DRAFT Zone 4: Special Opportunity Programming for this zone includes: • Walk/Jogging/Bike Trail • Windsurfing • Zip line • Nature Center (Alternative) • Hotel • Residential Development • Commercial/ Retail Development This site, including the old power plant and the lake, already draws a lot of San Angelo residents who participate in those activities. A thorough site improvement would increase visitation thus supporting related attractions and activities around the site and improving safety and access over the current Zone 4: Special Opportunity Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 41
  • 199. DRAFT unfavorable situation. Once again all of the proposed activities are magnet attractions. With the exception of windsurfing they are not very seasonal. The trail system is already well-established around Gun Club Hill and the market would welcome a safer alternative if it is equally interesting. Zip lines are a clear possibility with the existing topography on the site. This is true for a ropes course too if the decision is made to maintain Gun Club Hill as a public destination rather than a private development area. Even is Gun Club Hill is disposed for private development, a trail system and recreational access should be incorporated on the top in order to take advantage of the views and to lessen the pressure of the walking demand on the road around the hill. The Power Plant site is a more standard site for a hotel – on a primary road and near the airport and downtown – in addition with sufficient height it can be oriented to capture lake views. This location will have special access to fitness trails and proximity to other lake assets, possibly making it a very successful hotel property with an edge over other hotels in the market with standard locations. Multifamily residential and a roadside retail/ restaurant, should be considered for this site. Zone 4 Estimated Participation/Attendance Potential 42 Hotel Market • Occupancy rates in San Angelo grew from 58% in 2010 to 73% in 2012 (78% 1st quarter of 2013) • San Angelo currently has a room night supply of 713,940.

Zone 5: Community/Activity Programming for this zone includes: • Birding Center • Fishing • Canoe/ Kayak These are a trio of low impact activities that will succeed best on a quieter portion of the lake. Two require a location to which wildlife are drawn – birds and fish. Despite the
  • 200. Master Plan DRAFT Zone 5 Community Activity low-impact, quiet, nature of these activities, they’re all very popular as shown in figure 45 below and this could be a magnet site for enthusiasts of all three activities. From a design perspective it would be appropriate to spread these activities across the zone, as people do not typically do one and then another in succession - there’s no activity synergy, so they are best designed to be quiet and low impact. People engaged in these activities typically bring their own supplies. There is no clear need for support facilities. Given the particularly interesting dependence on wildlife for two of these activities, the design of this zone should be natural – including any public conveniences provided. There is sufficient demand for these activities – especially as many of the participants in these more sedentary activities are older. Integrated Parks/Trails and Connectivity A network of trails and connections would help build a sense of identity and synergy between character zones around Lake Nasworthy. The lake is a beautiful natural treasure for both San Angelo and surrounding communities. Hiking, biking and walking are healthy, affordable ways to enjoy the natural world, to exercise, to relax, and to travel from place to place around the lake. However, there are currently no dedicated bike lanes on the roads around the lake and few trails along the water and through the natural wooded areas. The City of San Angelo has identified the need for more trails in the lake area, and many of the trails in this report were already included in the City of San Angelo Bike and Pedestrian Plan (last updated in 2008) and/or the 2012 Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan. The proposed Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 43
  • 201. DRAFT Zone 5 Estimated Participation/Attendance Potential trails in this section are expansions on previously planned: routes, trails, and recommended trailhead locations. The proposed network of trails, bike lanes, and bike routes, as shown on the Proposed Trail System map (figure 55) would allow bicyclists to travel safely from the north along Knickerbocker Road to attractions around the lake. In addition to providing opportunity for alternative modes of mobility, it would include over 28 miles of scenic and recreational opportunity, creating a loop around the lake. It could also contribute to a solution of the current conflict of uses on Gun Club Road between vehicles and pedestrians. Organized trail systems can stimulate the local economy by increasing tourism and promoting local business. Key Considerations Some of the trails proposed in this section are not on Cityowned land, particularly along the old raised rail bed that would be the location of the Rails-to-Trails trail discussed further below. The trail would run from Spillway Road to Red Bluff Road, a distance of 1.8 miles, and would include a pedestrian bridge over the Middle Concho River. Rights of access would need to be acquired by the City or a non-profit entity. There are also a few sections of the proposed foot trails, included in the COSA (City of San Angelo) Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan, that cross land owned by the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI). An agreement would need to be reached with the DOI, if one is not already in place, before trail construction could begin on these 44 reaches. Sections of the hike and bike trails that are not on City owned land are shown on the Proposed Trail System map on the next page in light green. Sections of the foot trail included in the Parks Master Plan that cross DOI land are shown as dotted blue lines. Some trails cross land that is leased by the City. Such trail reaches should be aligned and designed to either wholly avoid or minimally displace the agricultural and other uses of the lessee, with written governing understandings between the lessees and the City. Sections of trail on City land that is not currently parkland are shown in purple on the Proposed Trail System map. Trail that crosses existing parkland is shown in dark green. Proposed Additions to the COSA Bike and Pedestrian Plan (B&PP) On the west side of the lake, in addition to the proposed bike route along Spillway Road, which was included in the COSA Bike and Pedestrian Plan as a bike lane, this report recommends a hike and bike trail running along the northern edge of Spring Creek and the southern edge of the Middle Concho River, connecting with the broader trail system at each end. This trail would be a more meandering, less direct route than that given in the B&PP, offering an alternative 5 mile scenic trail along the water. On the east side of the lake, along Fish Hatchery Road, this report recommends a hike and bike trail running to the South Concho River. A spur would connect to the Hatchery lands on which a playa and restored native prairie are planned as
  • 202. Master Plan DRAFT Proposed Trail System Map part of this report’s birding destination program. The hike and bike trail would continue on the other side of the South Concho River until it connects with the bike route on Beaty Road. At the place where the hike and bike trail meets the river, there is a large shoal which may allow hikers and cyclists to ford the river easily. However, it is recommended that the City further study this possibility. The road loop around Gun Club Hill, created by Gun Club Road and Hillside Drive, is heavily used at present by walkers and runners and there are a number of points along the road where visibility is impaired by hills and curves. A trail Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 45
  • 203. DRAFT Master Plan Sketch of Planned Trail, Midland I-20 Playa Preserve separated from the roadway would allow for safe use of the area by pedestrians and unobstructed use of the roadway by vehicles. San Angelo’s City Engineer reported in a memo to City Council on August 17, 2010 that adding such a trail would require the physical widening of approximately 6,000 linear feet of Gun Club Road (to establish a minimum roadway width of 20 feet) and construction of an additional 5 to 8 foot wide improved pedestrian way adjacent to the 46 roadway. The City Engineer reported that this would require the excavation of the vertical embankment along the north and west sides of Gun Club Hill. This report recommends pursuing this option, as it would improve public safety while allowing pedestrians to continue enjoying the views from the road. The construction of a trail loop on the top of Gun Club Hill itself, for which there is a Parks Department CIP, could also reduce pedestrian use of the Gun Club Hill loop
  • 204. Master Plan road, and would provide a significant amenity to the citizens of San Angelo and to visitors. Two sections of the old rail line jut out into Lake Nasworthy just southwest of Hot Water Slough Park. While it may be possible to build a bridge from one to the other in order to extend the length of the Rail Trail (discussed below), it would likely be cost prohibitive. Instead, the City could make the bridge stubs more conducive to public use, such as fishing, which public interviews reveal is happening there already. Adding a sun shelter (perhaps 6’ x 12’ supported by columns) at the end of each stub, with well-placed benches underneath, would make them more pleasant to use. The stub on the west is wider in some parts, and a picnic area could be added. Given the wear and tear evident on the stubs, a budget should be allocated to their improvement, including safety and visual quality enhancement. Rail-to-Trails Former rail lines have been transformed into popular recreational trails and transportation corridors around the United States and elsewhere. The raised beds remaining after a rail line has been decommissioned offer a unique opportunity to create trails that are flat or gently sloped and are ideal for bicycling, walking, in-line skating, equestrian use and wheel chair use. The former rail line that runs from Spillway Road in the west to Red Bluff Road in the east could be turned into one of these trails, adding almost two miles of trails in a natural setting, and creating a pedestrian-bike bridge across the Middle Concho River. Information on programs that offer potential funding or technical assistance for trails are included in the implementation section of this report. Bike Lanes and Routes In places where the proposed trail system is shown along a roadway, except in the cases of Knickerbocker Road and Gun Club Road, it is likely that a new bike route would be the most appropriate form for the trail to take. A bike route, or Class III bikeway in TXDOT/FHwA nomenclature, would provide for shared use with motor vehicle traffic and would be identified by signs and/or pavement markings. A bike lane is recommended for Knickerbocker Road instead of a bike route. A bike lane, or Class II bikeway, would be adjacent to but separated from the travel lanes with striping. Since Knickerbocker is a busy 4-lane road, DRAFT a bike lane would be needed to provide some protection for cyclists and to help organize traffic flow. It may not be possible to add a bike lane on the stretch of Knickerbocker Road that crosses Lake Nasworthy, since the bridge may not be wide enough to accommodate the added lanes. In that event, signs can direct cyclists to use the sidewalk along the western side of the bridge. Hike/Bike Trails and Footpaths Off-road (Class I) trails, such as the loop trail atop Gun Club Hill, will need to accommodate both bikers and hikers/ walkers with a width of at least 9 feet. These sections are colored purple or green on the Proposed Trail System map, depending on whether the land is City-owned. Where the alignment for the new trail is fairly even and surface conditions are non-eroding, minimal light re-grading and tamping may be all that is needed for stabilization. Where any erosion or instability is evident, stabilization can be achieved with suitable design and specification. Cross-grades (pitch) and all other specs should conform to TXDOT/ADA/FHwA standards. Path vertical alignments should not exceed 3 percent gradients where possible with a maximum of 5 percent where steeper grades are unavoidable. The City’s Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan includes trails on City land adjacent to Spring Creek Park and Middle Concho Park, shown on the Proposed Trail System map in blue. These trails can be designed as footpaths with widths of only 2 feet in most areas. As with the hike/ bike trails described above, where grade conditions for the new trail are fairly stable, only minimal light re-grading and tamping may be needed for stabilization. Where any erosion or instability is evident, stabilization can be achieved with the measures recommended above. The design, grades, and surfacing for all trails discussed in this section should conform to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and TAS (Texas Accessibility Standards) specifications. Trailheads The establishment of trailheads with way-finding information and space for parking will be important. These can be constructed with low-impact, attractive design and can be accompanied by amenities such as picnic areas, restrooms, and parking or can simply provide information about the trail. The Proposed Trail System map shows ten optimum loca- Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 47

On Gun Club Road at the proposed entrance to the hill top trail. 4. Intersection of Knickerbocker Road and Beaty Road. 5. On Fish Hatchery Road where the off-road hike and bike trail begins and a trail spur leads off to the new birding site at the old Fish Hatchery #2. 6. Intersection of Knickerbocker Road and South Concho Drive. 7. Intersection of Knickerbocker Road and Fisherman’s Road. 8. Along Knickerbocker Road at the planned future location of campsites and a relocated San Angelo Nature Center. 9. On the southwest side of the Middle Concho River where two trails intersect. 10. On the opposite side of the Middle Concho River where three trails intersect. It is recommended that parking be included for at least three trailheads: intersection of Knickerbocker Road and Beaty Road (on the adjacent City property), intersection of Gun Club Road and Hillside Drive (on City property) and corner of Concho Drive and Jaycee Road (on City Property). A potential trailhead is one of the catalytic projects included in the implantation section of this report. Other Considerations Parks and Recreation may wish to consider installation of an appropriate number of emergency phones along remote portions of the trail system. Also, the department may wish to name the trail system overall and its individual reaches with a nomenclature that expresses the unique attributes of the lake and its plant and animal life. Adding 28 miles of new trails in a well-planned network around Lake Nasworthy would provide San Angelo residents and visitors with greater opportunities to enjoy the lake’s natural beauty and to engage in healthy, low impact recreation. ■■■ 48
  • 206. Implementation Report Potential Partnership Structures The key to implementing the vision and projects in this action plan will be partnerships. Whether a partnership among the city and other public sector entities a partnership with potential private investors, the public sector must be very careful how it uses its limited assets to catalyze desired activity at the lake. The myriad of activities and potential additional activities is impressive. The vision for partnership and coordination in this action plan provides the means for the various public partners with an interest in Lake Nasworthy to work together to create synergies and shared outcomes in terms of land assets, revenues for operations and maintenance and complementary programs. The City is in the position to help prime development by supporting at some level necessary utility costs where it deems appropriate. The investment involved would be dependent on the type of development. Once detailed project needs are identified, fiscal calculations should be made to consider the cost/benefit case for spurring development on an currently underutilized parcel. Regarding basic needs for the successful operation of the lake and any expanded activities, this action plan identifies significant infrastructure and public amenity needs such as bathroom facilities, trails and erosion control measures. Public investment in those elements should be undertaken to catalyze and leverage private investments in entertainment, restaurants, hotels, etc. The means to do this includes entertaining unsolicited proposals under the state authorized authority for local subdivisions. This process encourages fairness and competition, while also allowing for the private sector to bring forth creative approaches to utilize public assets for maximum public benefit while creating maximum potential private investment at the same time. Through a separate set of deliverables, the consultant team will provide guidance on this approach. Funding/Financing Strategy The Lake Nasworthy Trust Fund is growing and can provide long term investment capacity in the core infrastructure needs of the lake. As discussed herein, prioritizing those investments will be critical in order to grow general tax base around the lake. This growth in general tax base will provide DRAFT additional investment potential over time for key infrastructure such as improvements to Knickerbocker Road in order to provide both safe access and increased capacity to destination around the lake. Accordingly, the creation of a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) should be considered in order to provide the potential for additional investments beyond the potential capacity of the Lake Nasworthy Trust Fund. This will be especially important if one of the goals is to balance the preservation of the corpus of the trust fund with expenditures over time. If any special district such as a TIRZ is created to support catalytic public investments for Lake Nasworthy, the following should be considered: • The Special District Project Plan establishing public elements for investments such as trails, docks, public plazas, etc. should align with the catalytic elements set forth in this plan. • The City’s Capital Improvements Program (CIP) should also be synced with the Special District Projects Plan so that any CIP expenditures leverage the Special District Project Plan, especially in terms of basic utilities and streets. • If a TIRZ is created as the special district, incentive policies should be included in the Finance Plan such as the conditions in which “Chapter 380” Sales Tax and Hotel-Motel Tax grants might be considered.—for example, the policy might state that those grants could be eligible for projects that align with the catalytic vision and projects of this action plan and that perform over a certain level of tax base return. • A coordinated policy should be reflected in both the Finance Plan for the special district and the finance plan for the Lake Nasworthy Trust Fund. Catalytic Projects The following catalytic projects build on the character zone structure described above. Some of these proposed projects are purely public, while others included both a public and private element. The goal of the public projects such as the birding center is to encourage expanded tourism activity at a relatively low cost public investment. The purpose of the public-private projects is to encourage the use of under-performing assets that could be coordinated in order to create synergies such Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 49

Mary E Lee Park The Harbor Village Character Zone that incorporates Mary Lee Park is a high profile location that has yet to catalyze enough activity to be commercially viable. By using entitlements and encouraging a critical mass of various use types to energize development, the Mary Lee Park area could become a year-round destination for both locals and tourists. The adjacent marina faces an uphill battle in terms of the economics of a standalone marina. However, if a portion of the land at Mary Lee Park were made available to accommodate a hotel/ restaurant in combination with the marina, the economics of 50 the operation of the entire destination could provide the ability for the marina operation to be underwritten successfully. This proposal would necessarily include the relocation of the Nature Center; but several options for that effort have been provided in this action plan. This could result in a win-win for both the marina and a relocated Nature Center.

Parking should provide spaces for trailer parking with opportunities for individuals, including those not enrolled in sailing classes, to bring their own sailboats, sailboards, and other craft. Sail boating need not be considered competitive with power boating in terms of lake surface availability. The broadening of lake recreational opportunity will allow more residents to do more of what they enjoy, whether for simple recreation or as sporting competition. While Nasworthy does not have the large fetches of other lakes, it has a sufficiently navigable surface and can accommodate small regattas and other racing events, each of which can bring some numbers of competitors and other visitors to San Angelo. This sailing activity would also provide visual, people watch- Power Plant Site Illustrative concept 52 ing interest for people staying at the hotel or eating at the waterfront restaurant. Power Plant Site Recently purchased by a private investor, the decommissioned power plant site offers an opportunity for the community to see activation of a previously dormant parcel. The activity catalyzed by development activity that is in congruence with existing activity around that lake can begin to make viable commercial enterprises that would be beneficial near the lake and bolster existing uses. This development could take place with the city playing a role to help shape a project that is in keeping with the long term vision for Lake Nasworthy. After complete dismantling of the power plant an attractive piece of property near Lake Nasworthy will be available for redevelopment. This is a unique parcel in its proximity
  • 210. Implementation Report to water and the canal that bisects the site as well as the frontage on to Knickerbocker Road. After discussions with the new owner’s representatives it is understood that the site is envisioned to be a mixed use concept with a single family neighborhood, multifamily buildings and a hotel served by neighborhood retail and commercial. Figure 59 provides a concept as to how the hotel, restaurants, retail and housing could be incorporated with pocket parks and public spaces; functional access to the canal for recreation; and access points for new roadway connections and trails through the area consistent with the proposed trail plan. Finally, the illustrative concept shows a location near the proposed hotel that could act as a regional interpretive heritage center and restaurant. Currently the site is zoned conventionally, requiring a rezoning for a more mixed use, integrated context. Zoning should be updated not just to allow more uses; but rather, to create predictability across different ownerships as parcels are sold to other developers such that the parcel develops out as if it remained under the control of a single master developer. This will allow for the fine-grained public spaces and walkable mixed use that would complement this location and its adjacency to Gun Club Hill. As this is a portion of the lake that has not been designed for recreation access or community character, street and trail connectivity will be especially critical to making the development special and appropriate for its key location. This is especially true given the popularity of Gun Club Hill next door. Accordingly, a careful approach to planning, infrastructure design and zoning will be critical to achieve both appropriate returns for the private owners, future developers and the public interest in this gateway property providing a destination speaking and connecting to this new vision for Lake Nasworthy. The bottom line is that this approach will allow a proactive vision for the site that would encourage place-based development with public benefit. A potential option to help activate the Power Plant site is to elevate Knickerbocker Road so that boats may pass under the bridge and enter the canal which can act as a marina. Preliminary cost estimating done by the TXDOT San Angelo Division put the price for the bridge and road reconstruction at approximately $2.7 Million. This reconstruction along with an updated boat ramp would help to activate the east- DRAFT ern section of the lake and position the Power Plant site to act as a potential focal point of this activity, creating an opportunity for mixed use development on the lake and private access from additional lake housing. Heritage Center as Activity Catalyst One potential example of a public benefit would be a Heritage Center that would bring activity to the redevelopment parcel and act as a state-of-the-art exposition of San Angelo’s heritage and leadership in Water Management and Wind and Solar Power Generation. The Center is conceived as one that could draw large numbers of tourists and any visitor with an interest in deeper understanding of water as a critical resource and the ways in which West Texas is developing advanced and environmentally sound methods of energy generation. Water, now more critical than ever in the City’s history, would be highlighted on the one hand for its natural resource values, with the iconic Concho River Pearl as emblem and window opener to the region’s important environmental systems. Water capture and management, at the same time, will reveal the exciting and dramatic history of dam building and lake management at the Nasworthy, Twin Buttes, and O.C. Fisher reservoirs. Energy generation is the second primary theme of the proposed center. While shale oil and gas are also significant energy themes, it is recognized that these would fare better, with a focus of their own, in a museum or expo center dedicated to them, just as the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum, in Midland, is devoted to the history of oil exploration, extraction, and refining. If this assumption is reasonable, the Center proposed here would focus on Wind and Solar Power as the second primary theme beside Water. If developed at a high level of exhibitory, audio-visual presentation (including 3-D film), and explanatory mediums, the Center would be in a position to draw large numbers of visitors from the tourism-traveling public as well as from water supply and energy industrial companies, public utilities, and educational and research institutions. Until the concept is developed in further detail and elicits the interest of a possible non-profit sponsor, or a private-non-profit partnership, it will not be possible to project visitor numbers, hospitality sector income, and public sector tax revenue associated with such a center, but the possibility exists and should be considered. The Center was originally conceived on the Power Plant Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 53

Nevertheless, the original concept is still being provided in this action plan if it is determined later that this more robust center would be appropriate at the Power Plant Site or at another site near the lake. Gun Club Hill Adjacent to the Power Plant Site Although this action plan does not provide an illustrative 54 concept for Gun Club Hill if it is developed, the connection between the Power Plant Site and Gun Club Hill must be careful planned and executed. The views from and attraction to Gun Club Hill by walkers/hikers necessitates that any development on the Power Plant Site and Gun Club Hill be linked and aligned through a very carefully executed street and trail plan as potentially laid out in Figure 55 depicting the trail plan for the area, and Figure 59 depicting the potential mixed use development on the Power Plant Site. The infrastructure investments for those improvements should be incorporated into any final planning and zoning for those sites so that both

Birding Center The Community Activity Zone, as mentioned in a previous section, is an area of the lake best kept in a natural state. A more natural state does not mean there is still not opportunities for activity – albeit more passive activity. Besides the kayaking /canoeing or fishing and camping there are other niche passive recreation opportunities that can incorporate a wide spectrum of participants. Birding Center as Ecotourism Catalyst An example of popular passive recreation is birding, which is renowned for the devotion of its enthusiasts. The Community Activity area of the lake offers an opportunity to create a birding destination by retrofitting the former Fish Hatchery No. 2. The former hatchery could be adapted into a Birding-Ecotour- DRAFT ism Destination with a Playa and Restored Native Prairie. The Hatchery is situated a short distance south of Nasworthy Dam to the east of Fish Hatchery Road and to the north of Country Club Road. It consists of more than 20 abandoned and now ordinarily dry ponds and other former breeding units, with a total property area of approximately 40 acres. The ponds/ units are divided by dikes with an average original crest width of 8-10 feet. Original pond water depth extended between two feet at the higher ends and six feet at lower pond ends. With erosion over time since the Hatchery’s closing in 1988, lower end depths are possibly no greater than three feet. Dike widths are probably narrower than the original condition, also due to erosion. Most of the property is thinly covered with dry land grass and shrub species at present, though some mesquite and other trees are present. Project Opportunities and Benefits Other resources serve birdlife in San Angelo. San Angelo Lake Nasworthy Master Plan and Implementation Strategy | San Angelo, Texas | September 2013 55
  • 213. DRAFT State Park has prominent birding sites. Lake Nasworthy and its fringe wetlands are well visited. O,C. Fisher and Twin Buttes reservoirs attract birdlife when water levels allow, as do the reaches of the three branches of the Concho River. Nasworthy, however, is often busy with power boating, waterskiing, and other lake activity that tend to deter aquatic birds. Creating a playa a short distance from the Lake would offer a desirable option to birds that prefer quieter surroundings. The restored prairie around the perimeter of the playa, in serving field feeding species, would add to the nature-observation value and ecological dimensions of the tract overall. terpretive signs would be designed to properly portray the playa’s aquatic, avian, and terrestrial wildlife. The New Playa This can be a resource for waterfowl and other avian species at a level of quality that will appeal to a wide spectrum of birders, ecotourists, university programs, families, and schoolchildren. The Restored Native Prairie This prairie restoration will be a source of food for grouse, pheasants, and geese, among other avian species as well as for terrestrials. Water-conservation principles would be applied to prairie establishment in that seeding of native grasses would be scheduled in August-early October two or more days prior to a forecast rainfall, with repeat seedings later in the same season and in following years, without irrigation/sprayings following these events. The pond (playa), dug to a suitable depth (e.g., three feet average over an area of about 3.5 acres in this conceptual proposal) and with sloped banks and other appropriate characteristics, would survive as playas typically do, namely on rainfall alone. Some stormwater runoff would be collected by gravity flow by one or more drainages leading rainfall from the reestablished perimeter prairie. One such drainage exists on the south edge of the area proposed for the playa. Some natural seepage, if it exists from any water figure adjacent to the site, would also help. The sole intervention would be for the pond/playa’s initial establishment, which could be achieved with the supply of about 8-9 acre-feet from Lake Nasworthy. Following this pumpage, the playa’s water sufficiency would depend on rainfall, as natural playas do. With appropriate design and grading equipment, a pond can be carved appropriately out of the existing landform of the old Hatchery. In the example given here, its configuration would be about 600 feet long in an east-west alignment, this long fetch favored by diving ducks such as canvasback and teal, as well as herons and others. The shoreline is shown as indented, which will allow tree growth on the western edges of the coves to provide cooling afternoon shade to the near waters, which will encourage fish to gather, which in turn will interest both feeding birds and human visitors. Six roofed bird observation structures are shown, each with a varying view of the playa. A continuous trail links all. In- Playas, as dynamic habitats that rise, fall, and revive between drought and rain, also support the robust growth of plants and so serve as attractive feeding grounds for birdlife. “Playa forage,” according to David Haukos, national playa expert1 “is so much better than anything else on the landscape that migrating birds will feed out the playa before they forage in the fields. And it’s not just ducks. We’re talking about shorebirds, upland species, wading birds – the gamut.” Educational Value of Both Playa and Prairie In addition to serving wildlife, both the created playa and the restored prairie will have high value to high school and college programs, as well as for nature observation and scientific study, including the monitoring of progress on the emergence of both playa and prairie. While no discussion has been held with area institutions such as Angelo State University and San Angelo Nature Center, the attention of these and other nearby educational and research programs could be invited by the City. Their biology programs and researchers and graduate students could potentially be engaged in monitoring the progress, establishment, and maturation of both playa and prairie. Results would be of interest to students, faculty, researchers, and general readers region-wide and nationally. Constraints The Hatchery property is classified as a “lake” in the National Wetlands Inventory. Any proposed change such as recommended here would need to first receive approval by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service following A-95 review. Given that the plan is to reinforce native vegetation and augment 1 David Haukos, PhD, Leader, Kansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and advisor, Midland’s I-20 Playa Wildlife Preserve (The Rivers Studio, Master Planners) 56
  • 214. Implementation Report DRAFT Birding Center Concept bird and other wildlife habitat, our assumption is that chances for approval are good. Clay used to line the fish ponds should not constitute a barrier to the growth of new vegetation if it is broken up and mixed into the underlying soils by land grading equipment. Buried utilities and equipment would be removed in advance. The numerous dikes of the Hatchery ponds need not be re-graded to the point at which the new land surface is entirely smooth. This would be unnecessarily costly and would not serve an essential purpose. A grading plan could accommodate a general leveling of the dikes and provide for a minimum number of new drainage swales. Some ponding of rainfall would not be adverse; it could provide for a seasonal marsh or meadow condition and thus contribute additional diversity to the restored prairie habitat. Role of the Hatchery Grounds in San Angelo and the Central Flyway Given the gradual disappearance of playas in Texas and oth- er areas of their six-state region, a critical decline that is beginning to affect bird numbers along the West Branch of the Central Flyway, where San Angelo lies, the introduction of a new, albeit small, playa and associated restored native prairie at this location will serve valuably. The new playa, however small, will be a positive measure in sustaining avian life and the chain of resting/feeding water bodies essential to fall and spring migrations, as well as in broadening ecotourism and educational and scientific study opportunities. Trail Head Connections During the course of public input it became apparent that the archery club is a sizable and active user of the area around the lake. They are constrained by a number of factors but parking access to public bathrooms is of primary concern. Due to their relative proximity to the disc golf course and existing/potential trails an opportunity for collaboration became evident. Figure 63 shows a concept that acts as a catalytic project, perhaps on a smaller scale than some other examples; nonetheless it could have great impact serving the utility of the adjacent users.

DRAFT Potential Trailhead Illustrative Concept the surrounding uses does not necessitate separate parking lots when it makes sense to have shared parking that allow for space when it is needed. The city could play an active role in the creation of these types of trailheads where there are opportunities to support existing activities and foster new ones around the lake. Zoning Regulatory Approach [This section will be updated after presentation to and feedback from City Council] The aggressive but realizable vision of complementary development at the lake as a part of the new lake Master Plan 58 delineated above will require significant changes to current zoning policy, process and regulations. As these needs are addressed, the following should be considered: • Zoning policy should create one central point of admin- istration within the City for Lake Nasworthy, including the single family on ground leases, single family fee owned and new development. This will enable a more predictable outcome from the public’s perspective and more efficiencies from the government operations. • A one size fits all for zoning regulations will not align with the unique nature of the different development opportunities around the lake. Accordingly a different
  • 216. Implementation Report set of design and zoning standards should be crafted respectively for the Power Plant Site Area, the Mary Lee Park Area and the other emerging traditional single family areas. • Zoning policy and updated zoning regulations should be coordinated with the update to the CIP plan and any new Project Plan for the proposed special district (e.g., TIRZ) Regulatory Environmental Issues Resource Management Lake maintenance was mentioned above as an inevitable concern that must be addressed. Dredging, which at some level will be necessary for resource management, is subject to extensive federal and state regulatory oversight. In 2002, the city completed a two-year dredging project to remove 3.8 million cubic yards of sediment from the lake, increasing the lake’s capacity by about 2,500 acre-feet or some 800 million gallons. This project cost approximately $10 million and was funded with revenues from the 1999 section 4B one-half cent sales tax. Similar dredging actions are likely to be necessary to maintain water depths and lake capacity in the future. Details on the regulatory implications of lake maintenance are included in the implementation section of this report. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regulates dredging practices under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. In general, section 404 requires that any municipality, person or business that proposes to place fill in or dredge material from the “waters of the United States” shall first obtain a section 404 dredge permit from the Corps. Lake Nasworthy falls within the scope of “waters of the United States “as a body of water more than 10 acres in size including contiguous wetlands and any flowing stream. A Corps section 404 permit will be required before any dredging or filling activity conducted in the lake or adjacent streams/waterways. Section 404 establishes a broad program to regulate the discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States, including wetlands. Activities regulated under this program include dredging, fill for development, water resource projects (such as dams and levees), infrastructure development (such as roads, highways, bridges, and airports), residential or commercial development, installation of docks, piers, shoreline stabilization structures, and even mining projects. Section 404 requires a permit before dredged or fill material may be discharged into waters of the DRAFT United States, unless the activity is exempt from Section 404 regulation (e.g. certain farming and forestry activities). Some of the proposed improvements contemplated in this report will involve either dredging or filling of the lake bottom, thus triggering the Corps’s section 404 jurisdiction. The basic premise of the section 404 program is that no discharge of dredged or fill material may be permitted if a practicable alternative exists that is less damaging to the aquatic environment or if the nation’s waters would be significantly degraded. To secure a permit, applicants must first show that steps have been taken to avoid impacts to wetlands, streams and other aquatic resources; that potential impacts have been minimized; and that compensation will be provided for all remaining unavoidable impacts. This three-step assessment of duties is often referred to as the “wetland mitigation sequence.” An individual permit is required for potentially significant impacts and should be anticipated if any lake dredging or substantial fill is planned. Individual permits are reviewed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which evaluates applications under a public interest review, as well as the environmental criteria set forth in the Section 404(b)(1) Guidelines, a set of regulations promulgated by the EPA. However, for discharges that will have only minimal adverse effects, an individual permit may not be required; rather, a general permit may be suitable. General permits are issued on a nationwide, regional, or state basis for particular categories of activities. The general permit process eliminates individual review and allows certain activities to proceed with little or no delay, provided that the general or specific conditions for the general permit are met. For example, marina basin maintenance, short shoreline stabilization projects (less than 500 feet in length), minor road activities, utility line backfill, and bedding are examples of activities that can be considered under a general permit. Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) will also have a role in the 404 permit decisions through the section 401water-quality certification process. As with the city’s 2002 dredging project, any large-scale future dredging of Lake Nasworthy can be expected to require an individual section 404 permit from the Corps. However, depending on the design, scope and scale of future dredging projects, the city may be able to extend and/or amend the section 404 permit issued for the 2002-dredging project.

Shoreline Erosion and Storm Water Management In 2012, EPA updated the National Lakes Assessment to help citizens and governments measure the health of the nation’s lakes, take actions to prevent pollution, and evaluate the effectiveness of protection and restoration efforts. (National Lakes Assessment: A Collaborative Survey of the Nation’s Lakes. EPA 841-R-09-001. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Water and Office of Research and Development, Washington, D.C.) The NLA is designed to estimate the percentage of lakes that are in good, fair, or poor condition, essentially a scientific report card on America’s lakes. It examines the ecological, water quality, and recreational indicators, and assesses how widespread key stressors (such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and acidification) are across the country. While Lake Nasworthy was not included in the original 2007 NLA survey or the 2012 update, two key findings of the 2012 report are relevant to future decisions regarding Lake Nasworthy. First, 56% of the nation’s lakes are in good biological condition, with natural lakes generally in better condition than man-made lakes. Almost half of the nation’s lakes are in poor condition. Second, and more importantly, of the stressors included in the NLA, poor lakeshore habitat was cited as the single greatest threat to the nation’s lakes with more than one-third of the lakes exhibiting poor shoreline habitat condition. Poor biological health is three times more likely in lakes with poor lakeshore habitat. (See National Shoreline Assessment Report (2007), Executive Summary, Key Findings, pages ix and x). Roadways and Utilities This master plan and action plan suggest the need for substantial investments in roadway and utility capacity. The following principles should be incorporated as specific infrastructure elements are prioritized, designed and paid for through public and public-private approaches as discussed above: Water Levels State and local water planners work together to assess demand and ensure adequate water supplies through regional water planning groups. San Angelo lies within the Region F Water Planning Region, which includes 32 west Texas counties as well as Midland and Odessa. While surface water provides much of the municipal supplies in the region, groundwater provides the majority of the water utilized, drawn from four major and seven minor aquifers. The Twin Buttes/Lake Nasworthy complex is but one component of an integrated regional water management system. Specific recommendations or actions to sustain Lake Nasworthy water levels are beyond the scope of this planning effort. Future efforts to evaluate and maintain Lake Nasworthy water levels - in addition to other water resources in west 60 • TxDOT should be engaged proactively to enter into an MOU for the cooperative redesign of Knickerbocker Road to realize the potential of Mary Lee Park as a hotel-anchored mixed use destination. If deemed appropriate, the funding would be based on the ability for all parties—state, city and private—to secure a benefit from their respective public and private perspectives including safety improvements and tax base growth. • A multi-stakeholder process should be engaged after the adoption of this action plan to prioritize street improvements based on the prioritization of the proposed catalytic projects delineated in this action plan. Once that prioritization is undertaken, estimates of probable cost can be undertaken to understand the investment implications. • Further discussion about utility needs and approaches needs to be undertaken with stakeholders in terms of the key catalytic projects. Until more detail for those specific projects are developed when those projects are initiated, utility needs and implementation cannot be assessed with any level of certainty, Trails Funding There are several potential federal funding or technical assistance programs to help implement the proposed trail network. The section of tail that runs along a former rail line could utilize resources available on the Rails to Trails Conservancy’s website (www.railstotrails.org). Other organizations include: Recreational Trails Program (RTP) - Federal Highway Administration Since 1995, the Recreational Trails Program has helped construct more than 100 miles of trail. This program is managed by trail administrators in each state and only projects that meet certain criteria may be funded. These include the maintenance and restoration of existing trails, development or rehabilitation of trailside and trailhead facilities and linkages, acquisition of necessary easements, associated
  • 218. Implementation Report administrative costs, and new trails and educational programs. At least 30 percent of all RTP funds must be used for non-motorized trails. Private organizations are eligible for funds under the RTP, although this depends on the particular policies of each state. The trail administrators for Texas are: Trey Cooksey, State Parks Trails Coordinator Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept 4200 Smith School Road Austin TX 78744-3291 512-389-8743; trey.cooksey@tpwd.state.tx.us DRAFT trail line would also require that rights of access be obtained by the City or a nonprofit for the areas where the trail line crosses property that is not owned by the City.

Program funds are intended for the acquisition and development of outdoor recreation areas; trails are one priority of this program. In particular, funds will “target projects that would enhance urban parks and community green spaces,” with a focus on “developing blueways and public access to water resources and conserving large landscapes.” Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program (RTCA) RTCA is a technical assistance arm of the National Park Service dedicated to helping local groups and communities preserve and develop open space, trails and greenways. RTCA is an important resource center for many trail builders in urban, rural and suburban areas. While RTCA does “not award monetary grants or loans,” the program “supplies a staff person with experience in community-based outdoor recreation and conservation to work with partners” on the ground. This technical assistance could be especially helpful in planning construction of the bridge across the Middle Concho, which is about 150 feet wide in the vicinity of the former rail line. An 8 ft. wide pedestrian-bike bridge could be built, potentially using the piers that remain from the old rail bridge. This option would need direction by the Parks and Recreation Department, an engineering study with hydrological and hydraulic study input, and community feedback.

Recommendation: Planning staff recommends modifying the proposed zone change request from Single-Family Residential (RS-1) to Low-Rise Multi-Family Residential (RM-1). Planning Commission recommended approval of the request High-Rise Multi-Family Residential (RM-2) by a vote of 5-2 on September 16, 2013. 2
  • 230. History and Background: At its October 1, 2013 meeting, the City Council tabled the initial request for High-Rise Multi-Family Residential (RM-2) zoning. Since that time, the applicant has reconsidered his request and is now seeking Low-Rise Multi-Family Residential (RM-1) zoning for the property.

Mills Pass Drive is identified as a "local street", designed to carry light neighborhood traffic at lower speeds and generally connects to collector streets. Zoning History: The property was annexed within the city-limits and zoned R-1 (the same classification as the current RS-1 zoning) in September 1991. 3

  • 232. Special Information Traffic Concerns: Changing to a more intensive zoning has the potential to generate additional traffic than if the property remained as-is. The lot remains vacant and little to no traffic is generated by the site. Parking Requirements: Vary depending upon the use of the property, see Section 511 of the Zoning Ordinance. Parking Provided: No parking exists on-site, once development occurs, parking will be required. Density: Mainly large tracts of undeveloped land surround the property. Some tracts have be subdivided and developed into smaller lots for single-family housing. The Vision Plan calls for 'Neighborhood' type development in the area. Notification Required: Yes Notifications Sent: (see attached) Responses in Favor: 1 Responses in Opposition: (see attached) Analysis: In order to approve this zone change request, the City Council members are first required to consider the following criteria: 1. Compatible with Plans and Policies. Whether the proposed amendment is compatible with the Comprehensive Plan and any other land use policies adopted by the Planning Commission or City Council. 2. Consistent with Zoning Ordinance. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment would conflict with any portion of this Zoning Ordinance. 3. Compatible with Surrounding Area. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment is compatible with existing and proposed uses surrounding the subject land and is the appropriate zoning district for the land. 5
  • 233. 4. Changed Conditions. Whether and the extent to which there are changed conditions that require an amendment. 5. Effect on Natural Environment. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment would result in significant adverse impacts on the natural environment, including but not limited to water and air quality, noise, storm water management, wildlife, vegetation, wetlands and the practical functioning of the natural environment. 6. Community Need. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment addresses a demonstrated community need. 7. Development Patterns. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment would result in a logical and orderly pattern of urban development in the community. The staff recommendation is based upon the statements listed below. The subject property measures roughly 5 acres and only has frontage along Southland Boulevard. Currently it is zoned Single-Family Residential (RS-1), the proponent seeks to rezone the property to allow opportunities for multifamily residences. Staff finds that proposed RM-1 is the most suitable zoning for area given aspects of the surrounding environment. RM-1 is compatible with the long-range Plan which envisions neighborhood development in the area. If RM-1 is approved, no changes will be needed to amend the current Vision Plan Map of the Comprehensive Plan. The requested zoning will be consistent with aspects of the Zoning Ordinance, thus staff's recommendation of RM-1. The current, RS-1 zoning does not allow for multifamily residential development. RM-2 is the most intensive residential zoning in the city and the district will explicitly allow for the development of multifamily dwellings and group living structures. RM-1 allows for the greatest range of housing options of the residential zoning districts - single-family detached structures, accessory apartments, two-family dwellings, zero lot line dwellings, twin homes, townhouses, multifamily dwelling and group living structures are allowed in the district. Conditional uses for both districts include religious institutions, safety services and schools – these uses are exceptions to Ordinance and require approval by Planning Commission. Issues of scale also factored in staff’s recommendation. RM-2 allows for development of multifamily dwellings – with a maximum density of 35 units per acre, RM-1 allows for 25 units per acre – the reduced amount in units translates into the potential for less vehicle trips generated by the site (assuming that the site is built to the maximum level of units allowed and each household unit had more than one vehicle). Much of the surrounding structures measure less than 2 ½ stories in height, RM-2 does not have a height requirement and allows for high-rise development that measure 3 or more stories. RM-1 limits multifamily dwellings to low-rise, two-story or walk-up apartments (each at which cannot exceed 2 ½ stories). The Floor Area Ratio, FAR, or maximum buildable space 6
  • 234. in a RS-1 zone is 0.40 or 40 percent; it is 0.75 or 75 percent in a RM-1 zone and increases to 1.00 or equal to the total square footage of the lot, in a RM-2 zone. Much of the surrounding development in the area is residential, which varies from medium to high density residential. The patio homes are most common housing type in the area, placed on zero lots, other housing types in the area include single-family detached housing and apartments. There are several large undeveloped tracts in the area, some have been recently subdivided into smaller lots for development of homes and commercial uses. Commercial tracts exist north of the site along Southland Boulevard and points west - some of which have been developed into business establishments. Two residential tracts to the west were recently annexed into the city within the past couple of years, the most recently approved Final Plat in the area (on the adjacent lot) seeks to subdivide the tract into much smaller lots for single-family development. Immediately south of the site is an undeveloped, 4 acre tract that is unincorporated and not annexed into the city. Bonham Elementary School is situated immediately east of the site, approval of this request will provide new students with a walkable experience back and forth to school. Given the fact that the street segment that adjoins the street is within a school zone reduces the designated speed limit of 30 mph to 20 mph when the school zone sign is flashing. Given the intensity of the proposed zoning, this transition may have some effects on the natural environment. RM-1 and RM-2 allow for multifamily residential uses - affects on the natural environment will depend largely on the intensity of the use. Unlike RM-2, RM-1 also allows for a wider range of housing options to include low intensity developments such as single-family detached dwellings and twin homes. These developments, on the micro-level, place less strain on the environment than multifamily and group living structures. Multifamily residences generally have significantly larger footprints that result in a higher percentage of impervious surfaces. Contrastingly, on a much larger scale, higher intensive, compact developments are usually a better use of the land. This is the case since living units tend to be smaller and are able fit more household units in a confined space and usually results in greater green space (huge variables exist with the property’s location and scale of the project). RM-1 is more suitable for an environmental perspective, it offers flexibilities in land development and does not merely limit development to multifamily dwellings, which carries substantially larger footprints. Uses allowed in the district are unlikely to pose major environmental risks to the area, in terms of leakages and contaminations that heavy commercial and industrial uses may pose. An internal site review will be conducted by staff before a permit is issued to ensure that the project is structurally compatible to applicable building standards and has proper drainage. The requested zoning represents a community need. There is a need for more housing in the city. RM-1 and RM-2 zoning will allow for higher intensity development. Both districts are currently underutilized in the city, but this is more-so the case with RM-2. Given the uncertainties in the level of the traffic generated from the site with RM-2 7
  • 235. zoning, RM-1 is the most suitable zoning for the area. The RM-1 zoned area will provide opportunities for medium to high density development with easy access to the street and a diversity of housing options in the area. The recommended request seeks to add more density in an area which is somewhat established. There is already existing water and sewer line connections and there will not be a need to extend public services to the site. The site has close proximity and access to major roadways - it measures roughly 2,120 feet south of Sherwood Way, identified as a major arterial in the city's Thoroughfare Plan. In terms of RM-2 zoning, the proposed zoning poses heightened concerns with increased traffic along Southland Boulevard and a potential choke point within a designated school zone (then again, we cannot assume that most of the traffic generated by the site will occur during periods in which students enter and leave the nearby school). The property has over 400 feet of frontage along the street, no other street is accessible from the property. The 2008 Traffic Counts for Southland Boulevard reveal that nearly 6,000 motorists travel on the street on a daily basis - it is clearly one of the busiest collector streets in the city. While the street meets the minimum paving width requirement for a collector street (which is 50 feet), the roadway is currently limited to two-way lanes. The acceptable volume of traffic along a two-way lane roadway is greatly reduced from that of a four-way lane road. Increased traffic generated by site will contribute to traffic congestions in the area. The recommended, RM-1 zoning already exists in the area. Higher intensive, RS-3 and RM-1 zoning exist further along Southland Boulevard and allow for a variety of housing opportunities - zero lot line, twin homes and townhomes and apartment development, respectively. RM-2 exists a third of mile away (around 1,500 feet) west of the subject property, laterally extending from an area along Sherwood Way – which staff has determined better accommodates increased traffic loads than Southland Boulevard. Compact development, in this case, is a more responsible pattern of development for the area - it will supply the growing demand for additional housing, while developing on the least amount of land possible and preserve needed green space. The property is situated immediately south of a large commercial node that includes retail giants Walmart, Sam's Club and Lowe's Home Improvement - as well as Chick-fil-a, Wendy's and Dairy Queen. Given the infrastructure in place at this time, the area is conducive for walking (however, the area streets lack sidewalks) - certainly alternative modes such as biking is an option for nearby residents in area with numerous commercial activities within a relatively short distance.

Mr. Boyd used photos and maps to orient the commission with the area and subject property. At this time the property is vacant and nearby an elementary school, fire station and a commercial hub of the community adjacent to Sherwood Way. There are also planned residential subdivisions and existing residential subdivisions in the vicinity of this property. RM-1 zoning will seek to reduce traffic on the site and reduce the scale of the development on the property. RM-1 more closely matches the development of the surrounding property and the area. RM-1 allows lower units per acre ratio and would limit the scale of development on the property. RM-1 is a way to keep the traffic down as well; conceivably all the units could have a driver and automobile or more, the RM-1 will also provide more flexibility on the property allowing for townhomes, single-family residential, accessory apartments, as well as multi-family dwellings. Ms. Priess asked about the zoning on the property and why staff recommended the RM-1 zoning. Greg Huling came forward to speak in favor of the request and wanted to ask the commission to consider RM-2 zoning given the commercial development in the area. The playground and parking lot are the school properties that are directly across from the subject tract. Mr. Huling did not believe that additional traffic in the area would be an issue. Mr. Huling asked the commission to consider RM-2 on the property instead of staff’s recommendation of RM-1. Ms. Jackson asked about the project and the intent behind the request and Mr. Huling indicated that the project would be 3 stories. Mark Crisp had a concern over the traffic, in 2008 there were 6,000 cars per day travelling on the street given the neighborhood and the school in close proximity. Rocky Templin came forward to speak in opposition of the request based upon the height and density requirements allowed for in RM-2 zoning districts.
  • 242. Ms. Jones asked if Mr. Templin if he had done a traffic study of the area, Mr. Templin indicated he had not. Sammy Farmer asked the applicant if he would consider RM-1, the applicant indicated that he would be ok with RM-1 in contrast to RS-1 which is what the property is zoned right now. Ms. Fawver came forward to consider the fact of what it would take to introduce and commission a traffic study of the area. Ms. Priess asked the applicant if he would be able to live with an RM-1 zoning designation. Mr. Huling asked if the commission would consider RM-2 or table the request to allow him to work with staff, do a traffic study, and talk to commission members, and Mr. Templin. Ms. Fawver addressed the concern over a traffic study and that funding would be required and may in all likelihood not be available at this time given the budget for the next fiscal year has recently been approved. Ms. Jones commented that tabling the request may not achieve what the applicant desires in the end. Mr. Wynne expressed that the economics for RM-1 would work in his estimation. Mr. Wynne also expressed a concern over traffic near the school and discussed the traffic circulation in the area Mr. Huling mentioned he had a feasibility study done on the property and some preliminary drawings for the proposed structures as well. Sammy Farmer mentioned that people pulling out from a driveway would be more ideal than people backing out from traditional RS-1 homes. Mr. Huling brought up the driveway at the school and that the pickup area was further south from the subject property. The intent of Mr. Huling is to have his exit to Southland as far north as possible in addition to a secondary access that might be required. Lynsey Flage came forward to clarify that the teacher parking zone is also used for pickup of 2nd and 3rd graders. She had some concerns about the traffic in the area as well and from parking in front of the proposed development. Ms. Jackson stated that there is a need for housing development in the community and that apartments could alleviate this concern; this appeared to be a good location for them. Sammy Farmer asked Mr. Templin if he would be opposed to RM-1 on the property. Mr. Templin stated that he would be in agreement with RM-1 as a compromise.
  • 243. Bill Wynne asked about the development on the property and Mr. Huling explained his project a little bit further. John Young asked about future development to the west of the property which was clarified by staff. Motion to zone the property RM-2 was made by Bill Wynne and was seconded by Teri Jackson. The motion passed 5-2 with Valerie Priess and Mark Crisp voting in opposition. A ten minute recess was called at 10:25 AM The meeting resumed at 10:38 AM, a quorum of 7 members was present.

Community Need. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment addresses a demonstrated community need.
  • 250. 7. Development Patterns. Whether and the extent to which the proposed amendment would result in a logical and orderly pattern of urban development in the community. The staff recommendation is based upon the statements listed below. Staff has found this request to be compatible with the plans and policies adopted by the city. Generally speaking, a Heavy Commercial (CH) zoning district is never appropriate directly adjacent to a neighborhood or residential zoning district in any circumstance. The neighborhood to the south (cul-de-sac and most residences Erin Street) of this subject property was zoned General Commercial (CG) until 2010 when it was rezoned to Single-Family Residential (RS-1) in accordance with the homes that had been there since the mid to late 1980's. However, there was no action taken to remove the CH zoning directly adjacent to this neighborhood. CH allows for Industrial Uses and repair, open and unscreened storage yards, warehouses and freight movement, and full service auto repair among other uses; generally speaking, none of these belong adjacent to a neighborhood with a 10 foot setback for buildings and 6 foot privacy fence as the only buffer. Rezoning to General Commercial gives the property more flexibility in terms of uses, but at the same time reduces the intensity of the uses drastically. Retail Sales and Service (hotels, restaurants, stores, offices, etc) are all uses that would be allowed in CG but not in CH zoning. These uses are much more palatable with the surrounding area when contrasted to the uses allowed in CH. If the zone change were not approved and the property was left with the current zoning, it could be developed as an Industrial Service shop repairing oil field tools and storing large amounts of aggregate materials for example. Staff has found the CG zoning to be in line with the goals and intent of the Zoning Ordinance and plans and policies adopted by the city when contrasted with the CH zoning in place at this time. CG zoning is consistent with this area and would in this case, be extending a CG zone to the northwest. The self service storage facility and multi-family dwelling units to the southeast of this property are also zoned CG. This would create a contiguous CG zone in this area and lead to development patterns that are consistent and predictable which is the intent of the City Zoning Ordinance. The CH zoning district in place at this time could lead to development at an intensity that is not consistent nor compatible with the surrounding development or neighborhood. While the property is undeveloped at this time, it is not realistic to expect a property along a major gateway into the community to remain vacant forever. Should the property develop to the fullest extent under its current zoning, the impacts on the neighborhood and the deterioration of the quality of life in this area is very realistic. The CG zoning is at an intensity and density that is
  • 251. consistent with that of the neighborhood and other uses in the area at this time, therefore meeting criteria three required of this request. The Comprehensive Plan is calling for this parcel to be developed commercially, with a small sliver in the back calling for neighborhood. Given the problems in maintaining split zoned lots, staff would be inclined in this instance to recommend rezoning the entire property CG. The back triangular shaped portion calling for neighborhood development is approximately one acre; due to the fact that Erin Street has no possibility whatsoever of ever affording access for neighborhood development on this one acre section, it would be advisable to zone the property with one designation. An amendment to the Comprehensive Plan is not required for this request given that the overwhelming majority of this property and intent of the plan is calling for commercial development on this parcel. The community needs neighborhoods that are affordable and free from obtrusive and intensive zoning districts and land uses in close proximity. Staff can find no justification for leaving a CH zoned parcel directly adjacent to that of RS-1 parcels which are currently developed with medium density residences. Additionally, some neighborhood serving retail along this highway frontage could bring future jobs and services to a segment of the community which has but one major area along Bryant & 29th at this time. While walking is practical to this area, it is certainly not convenient, ideal, or even safe. The lack of sidewalks along Bryant Boulevard and Lake Drive coupled with the higher speeds and limited pavement width respectively make pedestrian travel to the 29th Street area problematic. Retailing opportunities in this area are not possible with the current zoning on the property at this time. Staff would anticipate development patterns of the area and region to remain logical and orderly as a result of this zone change. The CG zoning presents a much more orderly pattern of development for this area than what CH zoning could ever afford. This will result in the continuation of an existing CG district and will much better protect the adjacent properties from noxious and intensive land uses. For all these reasons, staff recommends approval of this zone change request.

  • 253. B. Z 13-36: SAS Texas Properties LLC A request for approval of a zone change from Heavy Commercial (CH) to General Commercial (CG) to specifically allow for a "Retail Sales & Service" as defined in Section 315.G of the Zoning Ordinance on the following property: An unaddressed tract, located approximately 800 feet south from the intersection of Humble Road & North Bryant Boulevard. This property specifically occupies the Lakeside Gardens Addition, Block One, Lots 28-31 in northwestern San Angelo. Jeff Hintz, Interim Senior Planner comes forward to present this case consistent with staff's recommendation of approval. 19 notifications were sent and one was returned in favor one was in opposition. Mr. Hintz presented area maps and pictures of the site. Much of the proposed zoning is consistent with the Vision Plan. Self-storage warehouses and apartments are located to the south of the property. A zone change request from RS-1 to CH in 1997 is when the property obtained its current designation. Some commercial zoning already surrounds the property. This request represents consistent and orderly development in the area. CG will have less potential impacts on the environment and offers a suitable transition to the residential zoning to the east and south when compared to the CH zoning on the site now. Darlene Jones asks if the entire property is the subject to this zone change. Valerie Priess mentions that changing the zoning will make things better for the surrounding area than the current zoning. Nathan McQuillian a representative came forward to speak in favor of the request. No one else came forward to speak in favor or opposition Mark Crisp made a motion to approve the zone change, which was seconded by Bill Wynne and passed 6-0.
