City of San AngeloMemo Date: April 28, 2011 To: Mayor and Council From: Shawn Lewis, Director of Community & Economic Development Subject: Agenda Item for 05/03/2011 Council Meeting Contact: Shawn Lewis 657-4210 Caption: Consent Agenda Item Consideration of a recommendation by City of San Angelo Development Corporation (COSADC) t o appr ove an amendment t o t he C OSADC- City of S an A ngelo S taff Services C ontract i ncreasing t he p ercentage of t he Director of C ommunity & Economic Development percentage of salary paid by COSADC from 51% to 70% Summary: At its regular meeting of January, 12, 2011 the COSADC Board received and approved a new staff services contract between COSADC and the City of San Angelo. The c ontract as appr oved stipulated t hat 51% of t he s alary and be nefits of t he Community & Economic D evelopment D irector, 70% of t he s alary/benefits of t he Development Coordinator, and 30% of the salary/benefits of the Senior Administrative Assistant would be paid by COSADC. This contract was approved by City Council at its r egular m eeting Mar ch 22, 20 11. The COSADC Board at the t ime of or iginal approval also directed that these salary percentages be reviewed on a semi -annual basis. I n ad dition, t he Board di rected s taff t o r eevaluate t he Director’s s alary percentage in April 2011. History: The C OSADC B oard in January generally expressed an i nterest in funding a l arger percentage of t he s alaries and benefits for the D irector and the Development Coordinator pos itions, as t hey ant icipated t hat t he director’s j ob i n par ticular would require more than 51% of the director’s time. In response to the Board’s concerns at that t ime ( and s taff’s r eview of t ime al located t o E conomic Development up t o t hat date), staff recommended and the board approved increasing the Development Coordinator’s s alary and be nefits percentage pa id b y COSADC t o 70%. However, staff and the board agreed to review the director’s salary allocation in six months (April, 2011). Per t he d irection of t he B oard, s taff has r eevaluated t he ac tual t ime s pent b y t he Director on C OSADC r elated bus iness i n c omparison t o t he per centage of his t ime spent on ot her C ity bus iness in managing and d irecting ot her di visions s uch as Planning, GIS, Engineering, Permits and Fire Prevention. Based on print job’s charged to COSADC, COSADC related e-mails and phone calls, meeting requests and attendance for COSADC related items, staff believes it is more appropriate to move the Director’s salary and benefits from 51% to 70%. This will also help keep COSADC in compliance with State law which requires all development corporations to reimburse City governments for all City staff work performed on behalf of the corporation. The COSADC Board approved the proposed amendment of the Staff Services Contract raising the percentage from 51% to 70% at its regular meeting of April 13, 2011 and recommended the amendment be submitted to City Council. Financial Impact: The total contract amount will be increased by $ 20,777.88 Recommendation: Staff recommends approval of the revised agreement.

City of San Angelo Civic EventsMemo Date: April 28, 2011 To: Mayor and Councilmembers From: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager Subject: Agenda Item for May 3, 2011, Council Meeting Contact: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager, 653-5328 or 234-0014 Caption: Consent Item Consideration of authorizing in-kind support for an appreciation luncheon for Wildcat Fire responders, workers and volunteers at El Paseo de Santa Angela on May 22, 2011 Summary: The United Way of the Concho Valley will host an appreciation luncheon on May 22, 2011, at El P aseo d e Santa A ngela f or al l r esponders, w orkers and volunteers involved in the Wildcat Fire effort. The City of San Angelo would like to partner with the United Way in this event by providing the use of El Paseo’s pavilions and courtyard at no cost. History: Hundreds of local, state and federal employees teamed with an army of volunteers in the effort t o c ontain t he Wildcat F ire ( and t o pr ovide support s ervices) i n A pril. T he United Way of the Concho Valley is extending a “thank you” to those involved for their service by hosting an appreciation luncheon for them and their families from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 22, 2011, at El Paseo de Santa Angela. The West Texas Rehabilitation Center is co-sponsoring the event, and the United Way is seeking other community sponsors. The City of San Angelo wishes to partner with the United Way and the West Texas Rehab in this effort by providing the use of El Paseo’s pavilions at no cost. The U nited Way i s pl anning f or 1, 000 at tendees for t he c ome-and-go l uncheon of brisket sandwiches. The agency does not yet know total costs of the event. There will be no t icket s ales f or t he g eneral pub lic, but donations w ill b e ac cepted. O nce t he luncheon’s costs are covered, any remaining donations will be split equally between the Grape Creek and Water Valley volunteer fire departments. Financial Impact: El Paseo’s two pavilions typically rent for $100 apiece per day. The courtyard rents for $25 per day, meaning the value of the in-kind support would be $250. The rental fees cover all necessary services and staffing for an event. We would use as many part-time employees as possible to keep costs as low as possible. Related Vision Item The C ouncil’s V ision Work P lan f or nei ghborhoods includes f ostering a s ense o f community, which this event would do.

City of San Angelo Civic EventsMemo Date: April 28, 2011 To: Mayor and Councilmembers From: Carl White, Parks and Recreation Director Subject: Agenda Item for May 3, 2011, Council Meeting Contact: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager, 653-5328 or 234-0014 Caption: Consent Item Consideration of aut horizing staff to negotiate an agreement between t he City of San Angelo and Gary Donaldson Architecture for architectural services for a new livestock bar n o n t he San Angelo F airgrounds an d a uthorizing t he M ayor an d/or City Manager to execute said agreement. Summary: Hiring an architect to design the new livestock barn on the San Angelo Fairgrounds is the f irst s tep t o beginning a nd c ompleting c onstruction of t he f acility, w hich v oters approved i n N ovember’s hal f-cent s ales t ax el ection. A R equest f or Q ualifications process determined that Gary Donaldson Architecture is the most qualified of the six firms that responded to the RFQ. History: Among t he h alf-cent s ales t ax pr ojects t hat voters a pproved on Nov. 2 was the construction of a 30,000-square-foot barn in which San Angelo Stock Show exhibitors could h ouse a nd wash t heir livestock. The f acility would r eplace t he much-smaller an d o utdated Q ualtrust bar n on t he southwest c orner of t he S an Angelo Fairgrounds. Construction of the bigger facility will allow the stock show to accommodate more exhibitors. The project has been allocated $1 m illion in h alf- cent sales tax dollars. The first step in beginning and completing that project is hiring an architect to design the f acility. C ity s taff i ssued a R equest f or Q ualifications ( RFQ) f or ar chitectural services and received six (6) responses prior to the March 16 deadline. A committee consisting of S an A ngelo S tock S how and R odeo A ssociation E xecutive D irector Justin Jonas, SASSRA board members Brian May, Tony Churchill and Larry Teague, Parks and Recreation Director Carl White, and Civic Events Manager Anthony Wilson reviewed and graded the six responses. On April 8, May, Teague, White and Wilson interviewed the two (2) top-scoring firms: Gary Donaldson Architecture of San Angelo and M WM A rchitects of L ubbock. D onaldson scored hi ghest i n t he r eview of responses to the RFQ (577 points to MWM’s 501) and in the interviews (368 points to 329). The committee recommends negotiating a contract with Donaldson, believing the firm is most qual ified an d c an c omplete t he project most e fficiently i n t erms of t ime and budget. Financial Impact: The project has been allocated $1 million in half-cent sales tax funds. Our experience has been that architecture fees typically represent 6 percent to 7 percent of a project’s total budget if a local firm is used. (Fees are typically 8 percent to 10 percent if an out- of-town architect is hired.) Related Vision Item N/A

Donaldson has designed many of t he ot her f acilities an d i mprovements on the F airgrounds t hat are managed by the SASSRA. In addition to the depth of that experience, he has a k een knowledge and understanding of t he S ASSRA’s needs and op erations in relation to facilities.

This would allow D onaldson t o be gin his w ork sooner, and might result in t he f acility being finished in time for the 2012 San Angelo Stock Show next February.

City of San AngeloMemo To: Roger Banks, Purchasing Manager From: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager CC: Carl White, Parks and Recreation Director Justin Jonas, SASSRA Executive Director Date: April 28, 2011 Re: RFQ COL-01-11 A six-member committee consisting of San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association representatives Justin Jonas, Tony Churchill, Brian May and Larry Teague, and City staffers Carl White and m yself has r eviewed a nd gr aded t he s ix r esponses t o RFQ CO L-01-11/Architect S ervices f or Show Ba rn. That s creening l ed t o f our m embers of t he c ommittee ( May, T eague, White and m e) interviewing and again grading the top two scoring firms. Having completed this process, the committee recommends the City negotiate a contract for architectural services for the project with Gary Donaldson Architecture. We will offer that recommendation to the City Council on May 3. Following are t he scores and c omments that resulted from the initial review of the responses to the RFQ that lead to the committee interviewing Donaldson and MWM Architects: 1. Gary D onaldson Architecture, 577 p oints: C ommittee members w ere most familiar and comfortable with Donaldson, which has designed many SASSRA facilities on the Fairgrounds. That Donaldson is a local firm that has been in business 35 years and is intimately familiar with S ASSRA f acilities and operations l ed c ommittee members t o bel ieve D onaldson could complete the project more efficiently than any other respondent. 2. MWM A rchitects, 5 01 points: C ommittee members were i mpressed b y MWM’s r esume, which includes working with the Wall ISD and designing many livestock show facilities. They were also impressed by the designs the Lubbock firm highlighted, but noted this is a simple project t hat w ill not r equire creative pr esentation. While MWM i s v ery f amiliar w ith l ivestock facilities, it does not have first-hand knowledge of the SASSRA’s needs and operations. 3. BGR Architects, 389 points: BGR has done much work throughout West Texas, but does not have a great deal of experience with livestock show facilities. It boasts a very experienced staff and a long history of serving municipal customers, but listed only two similar facilities to the planned show barn – a vocational agriculture facility in the Frenship school district and a swine facility in the Lubbock ISD. 4. Priefert Complex Designs, 374 points: The committee was concerned by Priefert’s proposed $1.8 million budget for the project, which is nearly twice the $1 million in half-cent sales tax funds that voters approved for the show barn. Otherwise, the firm touts decades of experience specific to livestock facilities and operations. 1
5. Vandergriff Group, 319 points: Some committee members have had personal experiences with V andergriff, and c haracterized t he f irm as slow t o r espond to c ustomers. V andergriff designed Midland County’s Horseshoe Arena, which i s recognized as a high-quality facility, along with livestock facilities in Glasscock County. The firm has been in business for 32 years. 6. NZ Architect, 286 points: NZ’s response did not include any experience related to livestock facilities, although it has designed an equestrian facility and some rural campsites.The interview of Donaldson and MWM on April 8 led to the following scores and comments. 1. Gary Donaldson Architecture, 368 points: Donaldson did not prepare a formal presentation, instead relating his vast working knowledge of and prior ex perience designing and l ivestock facilities on the San Angelo F airgrounds. H e ex pressed c onfidence t hat, bec ause t his is a simple project and he is a local architect and h e clearly under stands t he S ASSRA’s needs, that the project can be completed within the proposed budget and possibly in time for the 2012 stock show. 2. MWM Architects, 329 points: MWM gave a strong presentation, noting its familiarity with the area ( it has a nd c ontinues t o do work f or and w ith t he Wall I SD) an d i ts ex perience i n designing l ivestock facilities and pr e-engineered m etal bui ldings. I t would par tner with l ocal engineering f irm S KG and t ap P opulous, a f irm t hat s pecializes i n l ivestock bui ldings, f or expertise. M WM ex pressed s ome r eservation ab out t he pr oposed $1 m illion b udget. MWM definitely has a strong team and a good understanding of the project and the needs.Again, based upon our review of the responses to the RFQ plus the interviews, our committee on May3 w ill r ecommend t o t he C ity C ouncil t hat i t authorize the C ity t o negotiate a c ontract w ith G aryDonaldson Architecture for architectural services for the new livestock barn.

City of San AngeloMemo Date: April 28, 2011 To: Mayor and Councilmembers From: Brian Dunn, Fire Department Subject: Agenda Item for April 19, 2011 Council Meeting Contact: Brian Dunn, Fire Department, (325) 657-4355 Caption: Regular Item Consideration of First P ublic he aring t o I ntroduce an O rdinance Amending Fire Department Classified Positions Specifically Driver Summary: The San A ngelo F ire D epartment c urrently has 66 dr ivers’ pos itions. D uring budget discussion last year the question was asked why we have what amounts to 2 drivers for each fire apparatus. The reason the fire department has this many drivers i s bec ause of t aking ov er E MS in 1979. T he adm inistration a t t he t ime didn’t k now ho w t o d eal w ith t he am bulances an d pr omoted a l ot of peop le t o driver. I know of no other fire department anywhere that has more than 1 driver per fire apparatus. F ire departments t hat a lso h ave t he am bulance s ervice ha ve firefighters driving the ambulances. We started doing this about 2 years ago and it works well. The idea is to reduce the amount of drivers from 66 to 33 through attrition. We will in t urn go f rom 62 t o 95 f irefighters as w e r eplace d rivers. T he t otal personnel numbers will remain the same. The s avings f rom r educing t he num ber of per sonnel i n t he dr iver position an d reallocating them as firefighters will be in the $390,000 range. It will probably take 5 years to get down to 33 drivers through attrition. We propose to use some of these saving to increase the ambulance assignment pay. We propose raising the assignment pay to $75 per shift as of January 1, 2012 and to $100 p er s hift onc e 16 dr ivers p ositions have be en eliminated t hrough attrition. The c ost of r aising t his as signment pa y will be offset f rom t he r eduction of t he number of dr ivers. T he c ost t o r aise t he as signment p ay to $ 100 per s hift is $182,500. This cost will be covered once we have reduced the driver number by 16. This will leave in excess of $200,000 once the final number is reached. We would ask that the balance of the savings be used to correct the short coming with the longevity plan as it is saved through attrition. History: N/A Financial Impact: NO ADDITIONAL COSTS… BUT FUNDS A RE R EALLOCATED WITHIN THE BUDGET Related Vision Item N/A (if applicable): Other Information/ Staff recommends approval.

Councilman Silvas asked staff to modify the ordinance to allow contractor trailers in residential areas.

City of San AngeloMemo Meeting Date: May 3 2011 To: Mayor and City Council members From: Bradley Stone, Principal Planner Subject: appeal to City Council, concerning Planning Commission’s approval of Conditional U se ( CU 1 1-03) al lowing sa le of alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises of subject property Location: 6005-6007 Knickerbocker Road, at southwest corner of Red Bluff and Knickerbocker Roads in southern San Angelo, specifically on Lot 2 i n Block 2 of Lake Nasworthy Addition Group 21 Contacts: Sherri H. and John W. Jones 944-9140 or 656-8316 Bradley Stone, Principal Planner and AJ Fawver, Planning Manager 657-4210 Caption: Consideration o f appe al from P lanning C ommission’s r ecent ( 03-21-2011) decision to approve a C onditional Use allowing sales of alcoholic beverages for on-premise consumption at 6005-6007 Knickerbocker Road on southwest corner of Red Bluff and Knickerbocker Roads, specifically on Lot 2 in Block 2 of Lake Nasworthy Addition Group 21. Summary: The P lanning C ommission has made a d ecision t o allow sa les of al coholic beverages for co nsumption o n t he su bject pr operty, so long as City Council i s inclined t o change t he base zoning c lassification of t hat sa me pr operty, f rom a N eighborhood Commercial (CN) to a General Commercial (CG) District. However, that decision by the Planning Commission may be appealed to San Angelo’s City Council. O fficials from a ne arby ch urch ( Glen M eadows Baptist C hurch) have f ormally appealed the m atter and ar e asking City Council to reconsider the Planning Commission’s previous approval of permission to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on t his subject property. In doing so, the City Council may: • reverse the Planning Commission’s previous action to permit selling alcoholic beverages for consumption on this property;
• affirm the P lanning Commission’s previous action t o p ermit s elling a lcoholic beverages for consumption on this property, subject to the same conditions stipulated by the Planning Commission; or • affirm the P lanning Commission’s previous action t o p ermit s elling a lcoholic beverages for consumption on this property, but modifying the conditions stipulated by the Planning Commission in its motion for approval.Even i f City C ouncil a ffirms the P lanning C ommission’s approval o f per mission t o se llalcoholic beverages for consumption on t he s ubject pr operty, su ch a pproval will have noeffect until and unless City Council decides to also approve changing this property’s zoningto a General Commercial District.Surrounding Zoning and Land Use:North Neighborhood Commercial (CN) self-service storage, vacant retail buildingEast Single-Family Residence (RS-1) single-family residences, Glen Meadows Baptist ChurchSouth no zoning; outside City limits electric power station (closed)West Neighborhood Commercial (CN) self-service storageBackground:San A ngelo’s Zoning O rdinance e mpowers the Planning C ommission t o appr ove“Conditional U ses” as they ap pear on t he “Use T able” i n S ection 310 of t he z oningordinance. This Use T able i dentifies certain ca tegories of use as always being al lowed,depending on the zoning classification. Certain other categories of use are never allowed,depending o n t he zoning cl assification. S till other ca tegories of use are a llowed in eachzoning classification only as Conditional Uses. This means such uses are allowed at somespecific location in that particular zoning district only with the Planning Commission’sapproval, after a publ ic hearing on the matter. Such Conditional Uses may be appropriateat some but perhaps not all locations in the zoning district(s) where potentially allowed.According to Zoning O rdinance S ection 3 10, selling al coholic beverages for on -premiseconsumption is allowed in G eneral Commercial ( CG) zoning districts only with approval ofjust such a C onditional Use. This does not include restaurants where alcoholic beveragesare pr ovided as a su pplemental se rvice and that ar e el igible f or a “ Food and B everageCertificate” from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage C ommission. S uch r estaurants arecategorized as retail s ervices and ar e al ways al lowed in both N eighborhood C ommercial(CN) and General Commercial (CG) zoning districts.At its meeting on March 21 of 2011, San Angelo’s Planning Commission approved Sherriand Jo hn W. Jo nes’ r equest f or appr oval of a C onditional U se allowing sales of al coholicbeverages for consumption on property at 6005-6007 Knickerbocker Road.During the thirty-day per iod allowed by zoning regulations, officials from nearby GlenMeadows Baptist Church formally appealed the Planning Commission’s approval of Sherri
and John W. Jones’ request, to San Angelo’s City Council. Zoning Ordinance Subsection208.H sp ecifically c oncerns City C ouncil co nsideration of appeal s from P lanningCommission decisions on applications for Conditional Use approval, as follows: “In considering such an appeal, the City Council shall review the decision in light of t he Comprehensive P lan, t his Zoning Ordinance, t he O fficial Zoning Map, and any other land use policies adopted by the Planning Commission or City council, whichever is applicable. T he City Council shall modify or reject the deci sion of t he P lanning C ommission o nly if i t is not su pported by substantial co mpetent evidence or i f t he P lanning C ommission’s decision is contrary to t he C omprehensive P lan, t his Zoning O rdinance or t he O fficial Zoning Map.”Site-Specific History and Analysis:The subject property was annexed to the City of San Angelo in 1984. This property waseven t hen occu pied b y a co mmercial bui lding and was soon encompassed within aNeighborhood C ommercial zoning district. A t that time, in 1984, t he subject property w asoccupied by a convenience grocery, a bait shop and the Pack Saddle Barbeque Restaurant.This restaurant st ill occu pies approximately one hal f o f the co mmercial bui lding on t hisproperty.Consuming al coholic beverages at t he P ack Saddle B arbeque R estaurant is p resentlypermitted by t his establishment’s eligibility f or a “ Food and B everage C ertificate” from theTexas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. This certificate is available to those establishmentswhere revenue from selling alcoholic beverages is less than revenue from selling preparedfood and other beverages.The r emaining one ha lf of t he co mmercial bui lding on t his property i s now vacant. Theproperty’s owners want t o make t his vacant p ortion of t he e xisting b uilding available t o abusiness engaged in selling alcoholic beverages for on-premise consumption and w hichwould not be e ligible f or a F ood and B everage C ertificate from t he T exas AlcoholicBeverage Commission. This will require both of the following from the City of San Angelo: • City Council’s ap proval of a zo ne ch ange t o a G eneral Commercial District, af ter a public hearing and recommendation by the Planning Commission; and • approval of a Conditional Use allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages for on- premise consumption.Zoning Ordinance Subsection 208.F stipulates that approval of a Conditional Use must bebased on criteria that include each of the following:1. Impacts Minimized. Whether and the extent to which the proposed Conditional Use creates adverse effects, including adverse visual impacts, on adjacent properties.2. Compatible w ith Surrounding Area. Whether an d t he e xtent t o which t he proposed C onditional U se is compatible with e xisting and ant icipated use s surrounding the subject land.3. Community Need. Whether and the extent to which the proposed Condtional Use addresses a demonstrated community need.
4. Development Patterns. Whether and the extent to which the proposed Conditional Use addresses a demonstrated community need. The nearest residential lot (to the subject property) lies approximately 200 feet east of this subject property and across the width of Knickerbocker Road, a high-speed arterial street. This degree of se paration i s believed t o be si gnificant enough t o minimize potential incompatibility between any residences and a bar or tavern that might someday emerge on the subject property. Based pr imarily on this observation, t he P lanning C ommission approved the r equested Conditional U se al lowing sales of al coholic beverages for co nsumption on t he subject property. The Planning Commission’s approval was nonetheless made subject to the following conditions: 1. City C ouncil’s approval of a G eneral C ommercial ( CG) zoning district on t he sa me subject property, within a period of no more than one year following Planning Commission approval of this requested Conditional Use. 2.

4/28/2011 Rationale• Anticipated future annexation of land to the west, will leave a “hole” in the incorporated area of San Angelo;• When sold to WTU, agreement was that it would not be brought into City limits unless development for residential and other purposes has progressed continuously to such an extent that the area covered by this deed is substantially surrounded by land actually developed inside the City Limits;• Segment of Red Bluff Rd has been maintained by the City for over 60 years; Public Comment 18
4/28/2011 Background• Request by Council members Adams & Alexander;• December of 2003, draft ordinance which would prohibit parking in residential front yards;• Council took no action;• October of 2009, discussion by the Development Coordinator; Council members asked th t staff C di t C il b k d that t ff continue to look into the matter. Problems Noted:• blighting effect on appearance of neighborhoods;• lack of distinction in parking areas vs. green areas;• prevents growth of vegetation, contributing to t th ft ti t ib ti t sediment-laden, contaminated runoff;• reduces openess;• blocking of sight lines for vehicular traffic;• obstruction of access for emergency vehicle personnel;• diminished quality and value. 19
4/28/2011 Draft Ordinance Proposal• Proposal is not a complete prohibition against parking in yards;• Presents conditions with which the practice can be continued;• Consistent with the 2009 discussion in which some members felt it should be regulated, but no one member seemed compelled to outlaw it entirely;• Also consistent in that it recognizes that some situations may call for or should allow the practice;Exceptions which Allow Parking in a Yard:• Parking in an area screened from public view with a fence or wall 6’ in height;• Parking in a rear yard not adjacent to a street right-of- way;• Residential lots on streets 30’ wide or narrower;• Parking of a vehicle with a valid handicapped license g pp plate or mirror hanger;• On an improved surface. 20
4/28/2011 Advantages to This Approach:• Individuals living on narrow streets are allowed relief;• The vast majority of rear yards (which are generally adjacent to an alley right-of-way) are still available for parking;• Fenced side yards are still available for parking;• Renters of residential property doing the p p p y g parking are g penalized, and not the property owner(s);• Residents are given a six-month period to come into compliance before the ordinance goes into effect; Advantages to this Approach:• The definition of paving allows a variety of approaches individuals can choose from: • hot mix over an appropriate base material; • two-course penetration (two layers of crushed stone and asphalt); • reinforced concrete; • interlocking concrete paving stones over an appropriate base; or • compacted gravel, caliche or crushed rock with a minimum depth. 21
4/28/2011 Recommendation• City staff recommends approval of this draft ordinance; 22
City of San AngeloMemo Meeting Date: May 03 2011 To: Mayor and City Council members From: Bradley Stone, Principal Planner Subject: item for r egular agend a of C ity C ouncil m eeting on T uesday, M ay 3 of 2011, as well as for regular agenda of City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 17 of 2011 Contacts: Bradley Stone, Principal Planner and A J Fawver, Planning Manager 657-4210 Caption: Public hearing of c omments for and a gainst pr oposed an nexation of approximately 200 ac res l ocated s outhwest o f S an A ngelo’s ex isting c ity limits, encompassing the Lake Nasworthy Power Station at 6465 Knickerbocker Road, an adjacent electric substation, an approximately 500- foot wide strip of land occupied by parallel arrays of electric power transmission l ines, and an appr oximately 0. 34-mile s egment o f r ight-of-way for Red Bluff Road. Summary: Before any or dinance anne xing t hese ap proximately 20 0 acr es may be formally introduced, San Angelo’s City Council must conduct at least two hearings to consider comments for or against this proposed annexation. The first such hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, May 3 of 2011, and the second such hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17 of 2011. Background: The subject area of proposed annexation includes only the following features: • the site of Lake Nasworthy Power Station, • an adjacent substation of electric power transformers, • an appr oximately 500 -foot wide st rip of l and o ccupied b y parallel ar rays of electric power transmission lines, and • an approximately 0.34-mile long segment of right-of-way for Red Bluff Road.
This proposed annexation area is believed to include no residents.Reasons for Proposed Annexation:City st aff’s proposed a nnexation of t his particular pr operty ( including t he Lake N asworthyPower Station) is prompted by the following concerns: • Anticipated f uture an nexation of near by land t o t he west, i nstigated b y pr ivate developers, will leave an awkward and inexplicable “hole” in the incorporated area of S an A ngelo. T his anticipated “ hole” is precisely t he ar ea n ow proposed t o be annexed. Most of this acreage was sold by the City of San Angelo to the former West Texas Utilities Company during 1961-62, for construction of Lake Nasworthy Power S tation ( now cl osed) as well as accompanying el ectric power transformers and t ransmission l ines. A pr ovision i n t he d eed co nveying t his acreage t o West Texas Utilities Company stipulates that it “will not be brought into the City limits of San A ngelo…unless actual l and development f or r esidential a nd ot her pur poses has progressed continuously from the City Limits of San Angelo, as they now exist, to such an ext ent that the area covered by this deed is substantially surrounded by land act ually developed inside t he City Limits.” C ity st aff believes that, dur ing t he almost 50 years since t his deed was executed, t he expansion of S an A ngelo’s urbanized area has progressed so that this acreage is now substantially surrounded by development. • This unincorporated ar ea i ncludes a sh ort ( 0.34 mile l ong) and ot herwise i solated segment o f R ed B luff Road not no w e ncompassed within S an A ngelo’s corporate limits. Because this segment of Red Bluff Road provides access to Middle Concho Park, as well as to R ed B luff and Li ncoln P ark Groups of housi ng on L ake Nasworthy, t he C ity’s Operations Department has already b een m aintaining t his segment of Red Bluff Road, for 60 or more years.Related Vision Items: San Angelo’s 2009 Comprehensive Plan identifies two generalgoals for future annexation: Goal 1: Use annexation to ensure that new housing and business activity is incorporated w ithin City l imits o f S an A ngelo, in a way w hich minimizes up- front mu nicipal exp enditures ( for cap ital i mprovements i n n ewly an nexed areas) but maximizes suitability of such development within the urban context of S an Angelo. Annex a reas before ex tensive d evelopment o f h ome si tes and business properties occurs, gui ding an y su ch deve lopment within a framework of municipal regulations on zoning, subdivision, signs, fire prevention and building construction. Goal 2: Balance short-term costs of making measured capital improvements in possible annexation areas, with long-term costs of not annexing these same areas. Recognize that determining the best areas for annexation involves anticipating realistic potential for development of new home sites and new business 2
activity all ar ound the urban f ringe, annexing the m ost promising such areas where timely application of urban development standards can have an effective impact.Attachments: map and a erial photo illustrating proposed annexation of land located southwest of San AngeloPresentation: A J Fawver, Planning ManagerPublication: A legal notice of t hese two pub lic hearings was published i n t he San Angelo S tandard-Times on F riday, A pril 22 of 2011.
