From THE LOCKER ROOM

Arlington City Council Update

The council did meet last week. There were no committee meetings. Council Member Piel was absent, again. They will hold a [not broadcasted] priority setting meeting this coming Tuesday, April 16, at the Texas Rangers Golf Course Clubhouse.

 

# # # # # # # # # # # #

 

Afternoon Meeting

The afternoon agenda can be found at: https://arlingtontx.granicus.com/AgendaViewer.php?view_id=9&event_id=2066 . The meeting can be viewed at: https://arlingtontx.granicus.com/player/clip/4798?view_id=9&redirect=true . Council member Piel was absent.

 

(3:18) They started the meeting and went into executive session. The executive session agenda included:

1. Legal Discussion Related to the Gas Drilling and Production Chapter of the Arlington City Code

2. Discussion Regarding the Purchase of Street Right-of-Way, Temporary Construction and Utility Easement Rights from 2500 West Division Street

3. Discussion Regarding the Possible Lease of Real Property in the Arlington Entertainment District for Signs

4. Discussion Regarding the Purchase of Property for Childcare Facilities

5. Mansfield Webb Road (Silo Road to Collins Street) – Necessity Resolution; Project No. PWST21004 A resolution determining the necessity of acquiring street right-of-way easements and temporary construction easements for the public use of constructing, reconstructing, maintaining, and using street improvements, and all necessary appurtenances for the Mansfield Webb Road (Silo Road to Collins Street) project.

6. Offers of Incentives to Business Prospects

 

[The biggest concern regarding the childcare facilities is that this will become the next $6 million/year budget item, much like Rideshare. NOTHING has been said publicly on this subject, such as what is being considered.]

 

They reconvened and addressed work session items.

(3:07:37) 1. Unity Council Update and Equity Dashboard Overview (presentation). The presentation was by the city's diversity director. On the LGBQT+ screen he stated the city will be offering a wider range of gender affiliations [oh, fun]. The city's current [2002] Equity Score is 49.71, which is very high compared to other cities.

(3:44:22) 2. Storm water plan (presentation). As a result of storm water feeing us to death, they expect to have spent $100 million over the last five years to protect 122 structures [$820,000 per structure].

(4:03:04) 3. Police Department 2023 Use of Force Report (presentation). Of the 220,572 calls for service, 1,092 had use of force incidents [0.5%]. They announced a partnership with UTA's Criminal Justice Department to analysis these numbers deeper.

(4:25:12) Informal staff reports.

1. Arlington Multimodal Delivery Project Update (staff report). This May 8 “delivery” project is funded by the city and its partners ($820,874) and the federal government [unable to figure out why it is in such debt] ($780,182).

2. Arlington Housing Finance Corporation Homebuyer Assistance Program (staff report), activity through March 2024 (report).

(4:25:58) Appointments (none) and evening agenda items. They discussed 11.1 (first public hearing) and Council Member Moise (with P&Z background) seemed to want to remove uses from a straight zoning case [NOT allowed]. She showed great “concern” about decreasing the value of the apartments across the street. [It is a shame she does NOT show the same “concern” about citizen homeowners when she votes to add a gazillion multi-family units.] They also discussed 11.2 (second public hearing). The small business owner may have a difficult fight at the evening meeting. Items 8.20 and 8.21 (airport lease items) will be pulled for a future agenda.

(5:04:48) Trash cart update. Cart storage is an issue, with a 40% problem on noncompliance.

(5:13:00) Future agenda items. The mayor wanted an International Corridor steering committee. [There still was NO mention of the intention to buy property for childcare facilities.]

 

# # # # # # # # # # # #

 

The agenda for the evening meeting can be found at: https://arlingtontx.granicus.com/AgendaViewer.php?view_id=9&event_id=2089 . The agenda includeds an executive session item, 27 consent agenda items, and two zoning case public hearings. The meeting may be viewed at: https://arlingtontx.granicus.com/player/clip/4799?view_id=9&redirect=true . Mr. Piel was absent.

(3:00) Start of meeting.

(6:45) The one executive session item and minutes were approved with two 8-0 votes.

(7:57) The consent agenda saw items 8.20 and 8.21, regarding leases at the airport, pulled for separate consideration. Item 8.26, election information, had a substitute resolution. There were no speakers on consent agenda items. The remaining 25 items of the consent agenda were approved, 8-0. The two items, 8.20 and 8.21, were continued with an 8-0 v.ote

(12:27) The first public hearing was for zoning case ZA24-1 (100/120/150/200 E. Stephens Street) to change the zoning from General Commercial (GC) to Light Industrial (LI) (staff report). The council was not comfortable with straight zoning. A motion to approve failed, 2-6, with Gonzalez and Boxall in support.

(40:36) The second public hearing was for zoning case PD23-40 (1850 Park Spring Boulevard) for Community Commercial (CC) uses, plus major auto repair (staff report). The council approved, 8-0, after much discussion about overnight parking.

(1:01:18) Citizen participation saw three speakers on Gaza.

The Arlington Republican Club Candidate Forum on District 7: https://rumble.com/v4mh1vo-arlington-city-council-race-district-7.html .

City Issues.

There are too many apartments and multi-family housing units greatly overcrowding infrastructure/roadways and lowering the quality of life in Arlington. We have one of the highest densities in North Texas. Housing more people is NOT our responsibility. Advantage: Gonzalez.

 

Citizen participation at the end of the meetings was shortened to two minutes and requires pre-registration. Advantage: half Franklin, Gonzalez, Dobson.

 

The city makes very lopsided deals when it comes to economic development. Advantage: Galante, Gonzalez, Hogg.

 

Summary/RECOMMENDATIONS.

District 1

Only people in what is generally considered north Arlington will vote in this race. There are three candidates in this race. A majority is required, so if one candidate does not obtain greater than 50% there will be a runoff election in June.

Jacob Franklin half Citizen participation.

Tim Goss -

Mauricio Galante economic development.

 

Recommendation: Very undecided, maybe Galante.

 

 

District 2

Only people in what is generally considered southwest Arlington will vote in this race.

Raul Gonzalez apartments, citizen participation, economic development

 

WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND RAUL GONZALEZ.

 

 

 

 

District 6

Long Pham not worthy of your vote.

 

 

District 7

Bowie Hogg economic development.

Chris “Dobi” Dobson – citizen participation. Mr. Dobson is as liberal as they come on national issues, but strongly believes in citizen participation when it comes to local decisions/issues.

 

Recommendation: Another very undecided, maybe Hogg.

Economic Development Corporation (EDC)

The EDC Board will meet this Tuesday, April 16. Their agenda includes two extremely expensive deals. The agenda/packet can be viewed at: https://www.arlingtontx.gov/common/pages/DownloadFileByUrl.aspx?key=W0e%2f8zpyjnAqo7CFIbHE6weWMyPS7MjHtjQ35WeMJXadyT%2bNfjyQv96Cd4KExhIjC4obTbuNlMcXJ8VDHGJ6oQd3JwRrtdGRtmvBjOUSvr7Ukwa2qNjdR1Y28ZWdDRWXECeOkRHAJsByZO4VwnM1uGfGnbZslUtXfwNyzZxI90kE9AlI8Yb%2fDhNUweGEUAy97NLd3A%3d%3d .

Based on the agenda, they will open the meeting then go into executive session [for how long?]. They will then approve minutes, regular monthly reports, and finally address the two action items (linked to the two public hearings).

(.pdf page 15 of the 51-page packet) Public hearing #1 is to give the developer (Eden Cooper, LP) $3,407,000 for construction and completion of Eden Road and onsite drainage improvements. [Why are we paying for his property's drainage improvements? We are paying to increase his property value.]

(.pdf page 31 of the 51-page packet) Public hearing #2 is to give Espace Inc., up to $50,000,000. The proposed Phase I facilities on the west side of the airport will include approximately 250,000 sq. ft. of a manufacturing facility and office facility, approximately 40,000 sq. ft. of hangar space, an airport access road, and an aircraft parking apron. They will be leasing their space at the airport for 30 years, with two possible 5-year renewals. Rent will be $2,000,000 per year at the start and go up 3% every five years. There is too much I do not understand to evaluate honestly/fairly.

Arlington’s EDC is easily the largest sales tax supported EDC in the state. This gives spending addicted politicians greater than $20 million annually with which to fund their buddies.

 

Upcoming Public Hearings

On Tuesday, April 16, the EDC will hold a public hearing on a $3,407,000 contract with Eden Cooper, LP.

AISD Issues.

Communications. Unfortunately, if you ask the board a question, the odds of getting a response are not very good. Of the six candidates for three places, three (the two incumbents, and Mr. Mike) refused to answer any of the questions. If they are not going to answer your questions when they are running for office and asking for your vote, do you really expect the situation to improve when they get in office? Advantage: Orr, Arocha, and Williams Moore.

There needs to be an established policy for LGBTQ issues that should include parent notification if the student is under 18. Unfortunately, the district does not want one, leaving teachers and staff on their own [and unprotected?]. Advantage: Orr.

Budget. The AISD, like many school districts, faces budget shortfalls with federal ESSER funds ending. The AISD used those funds for many supportive positions. The AISD with its very high salary schedule (some might argue the highest paid) has little chance of paying its high salaries in addition to finding funds to pay supportive positions. The AISD will be cutting 275 positions. The Fort Worth Report story: https://fortworthreport.org/2024/03/20/arlington-isd-cuts-275-positions-as-covid-dollars-expire-employees-raise-questions . Advantage: Arocha.

Student Achievement. Expectations are far too low. Modifications are needed. The Arlington Report recently reported how expectations to meet or exceed grade level are below 50%. The Fort Worth Report story: https://fortworthreport.org/2024/04/09/arlington-isd-expects-4-in-10-students-to-perform-math-on-grade-level-trustees-have-questions . Advantage: Arocha, Williams Moore.

 

Summary/RECOMMENDATIONS.

Place 1

Sarah McMurrough – not worthy of your vote.

 

Place 2

Kendall OrrOUR RECOMMENDATION. Advantages: Communications, LGBTQ policies.

Melody Fowler – not worthy of your vote.

 

Place 3

Larry Mike – not worthy of your vote.

Kathi ArochaOUR RECOMMENDATION. Advantages: Communications, Budget, Student Achievement.

April Williams Moore Advantages: Communications, Student Achievement.

On Low Student Expectations

I know I have complained to and been ignored by the board about the low student expectations. I am glad someone besides me is pointing out these numbers, as this should NOT be acceptable.
