DEPARTMENT HAS AN ASH AREA OF FOCUS AND LOOKED AT IT AND MADE PLANS TO TRY TIME PROVE IT LOOKING AT WHAT SURVEY’S SAYING AND TAKING IT SERIOUSLY IS MAKING IMPROVEMENTS WHERE NECESSARY >> A WAY TO IMPROVE ON WHAT’S BEING DONE WELL NOW AND ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT WHERE OUR PROBLEMS ARE AND ISSUES TO BE ABLE TO FOCUS ON THOSE TOO >> EXACTLY YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT DURHAM WE’RE ON CREATIVE CHALLENGE VERY TRANSPARENT COMMUNITY THAT ALLOWED FOR THE TYPES OF RESULTS YOU’RE SEEING IN OUR COMMUNITY >> I THINK SO ALSO >> HAVE GOOD LEADERSHIP, THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT SO WE LOOK AT WHAT’S GOING ON DOWNTOWN DURHAM IS LARGER THAN JUST THE DOWNTOWN BUT WHAT’S GOING ON DOWNTOWN IS REMARKABLE IT’S A BIT OF I E GUESS A REFORMATION IF YOU WILL I’VE HEARD SO MANY PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS TO SEE WHAT’S HAPPENED IN DURHAM, EVERYBODY’S JEALOUS OF WHAT WE’RE DOING AND HOW WE’RE DOING IT, AND I’M TRYING TO EAT MY WAY THROUGH DOWNTOWN DURHAM, MAYOR BELL, HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO IT YET AS YOU CAN TELL, BUT I’M TRYING BUT IT’S INCREDIBLE WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PROJECTS ON THE TABLE FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS FOR DOWNTOWN AND HOW WILL THIS GROWTH AFFECT INFRASTRUCTURE DOWNTOWN? >> I THINK YOU’VE PROBABLY SEEN ANNOUNCEMENTS IN THE TERMS OF NEW 27-STORY RESIDENTIAL FACILITY GOING UP, WE HAVE COMMERCIAL IN THERE ALSO NO QUESTION THAT IF YOU LOOK AT WHERE WE WANT TO GROW IN OUR COMMUNITY, DURHAM THAT DOWNTOWN IS IMPORTANT, WE TRY TO MAKE IT A 24/7 DESTINATION POINT FOR PEOPLE LIVING THERE, WORKING THERE AND COMING FOR ENTERTAINMENT, BUT WE HAVE ANOTHER HOTEL THAT’S BEING — WE HAVE APARTMENT PROJECTS ON THE WORKS IF YOU LOOK AT INNOVATION DISTRICT, THE LAST FACTORY THAT WAS AVAILABLE FOR USE — I THINK IN THE FUTURE YOU’RE GOING TO SEE MORE PEOPLE LIVING DOWNTOWN, WORKING DOWNTOWN AND MORE RESTAURANT SO YOU CAN KEEP EATING YOUR WAY THROUGH >> FROM AN INFRASTRUCTURE STANDPOINT, I GUESS WE’LL SEE DRY CLEANERS AND GROCERY STORES AND THING LIKE THAT? >> HOPEFULLY TO MAKE IT COMPLETE WE WANT THE DOWNTOWN COMMUNITY TO BE WALKABLE COMMUNITY WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT PEOPLE LIVING DOWNTOWN WE HAVE APARTMENTS BUT ANOTHER ISSUE THAT WE’LL SPEAK TO LATER ON IS MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND THAT’S CERTAINLY AN AREA WHICH PRESENTS A CHALLENGE THAT WE CAN WORK TOWARDS SOLVING >> AS WE KIND OF STAY ON THIS THEME OF HOW DURHAM IS GROWING AND THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT WE HAVE SEEN RECENTLY IN THE ECONOMY ‘CUZ OBVIOUSLY ON THE UP SWING HERE AND LOOKING AT ALL THE BUILDINGS, YOU MENTIONED SOME OF THE GROWTH GOING ON THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF LABORATORY BUILTSINGS OUT THERE >> EXACTLY, THAT’S THE INNOVATION DISTRICT >> LOOKS LIKE I THINK THE TAX RATE HAS GONE UP ABOUT 14% COUNTY-WIDE AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS PRETTY LOW; WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN FOR DURHAM? >> LET’S NOT TALK ABOUT TAX RATE GOING UP, THAT’S SOMETHING WE’RE GOING TO SET IN JUNE, JULY, BUT THE ASSESSMENTS ARE GOING ON, OF COURSE THE COUNTY — PROPERTY VALUE UH YOUS NOT TAX RATES — VALUES, NOT TAX RATES I THINK WHAT IT SAYS IS THAT THE COMMUNITY’S PROGRESSING WHEN I TALK ABOUT DURHAM BEING FORTH LARGEST CITY, WHAT’S UNIQUE, WE’VE DONE THAT BY PEOPLE COMING THERE, NOT BY ANNEXATION THE FACT THAT IT’S GROWING IS THE FACT THAT JOBS AND BUSINESSES ARE HERE, PEOPLE ARE COMING HERE I THINK THAT’S ONE OF THE GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE RESULTS OF THE RECENT EVALUATION SHOWS THAT PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO MAKE INVESTMENTS IN DURHAM >> A LOT OF THOSE INVESTMENTS ARE NOT LOCAL, ARE THEY? THEY’RE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD >> EXACTLY THERE WAS A TIME WHEN WE WERE BEGGING PEOPLE TO COME BUT NOW WE’RE BEING MORE DISCERNING ABOUT WHO COMES IN >> LIKE DEAN SMITH AND ROY WILLIAMS AND MIKE, SELECTING SO ALL THE SUCCESS THAT WE’RE HAVING IN DOWNTOWN AND DURHAM’S EVEN BEYOND DOWNTOWN, WE STILL HAVE SOME ISSUES AND THERE ARE AS IS THE CASE IN PROBABLY EVERY COMMUNITY GROWING LIKE THIS, THE

ISSUE OF THOSE WHO ARE NOT BENEFITING NECESSARILY FROM THIS GROWTH FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER TYPICALLY AFFORDABLE HOUSING I THINK THAT’S SOMETHING THAT IF WE’RE SMART HERE IN DURHAM WE’RE GONNA BE DEALING WITH THAT ISSUE AND DO IT IN A VERY WISE SMART AND COLLABORATIVE WAY WOULD YOU TELL US ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON FROM HOUSING STANDPOINT? >> WE UNDERSTAND VERY MUCH THAT AS DURHAM GROWS IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT DOWNTOWN DOWNTOWN IS THE CENTER OF WHAT’S HAPPENING BUT WE’VE GOT TO BE COGNIZANT OF THE FACT THAT WE WANT THIS GROWTH TO TAKE PLACE IN OTHER PARTS OF OUR COMMUNITY AND THAT MEANS FROM THE REVITALIZATION WE TALKED ABOUT BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY MEANS BEING ABLE TO HAVE HOUSING THAT’S AFFORDABLE AND WE TALK ABOUT ARD AFFORDABLE HOUSING RELATIVE TO INCOME AND PERSONS WHO ARE LIVING BELOW THE MEDIAN INCUM IS WHERE WE’VE HAD OUR FOCUS WE’VE DONE A COUPLE THINGS COUPLE YEARS AGO THE CITY COUNCIL WAS UNANIMOUS IN DEDICATING ONE SHARE OF THE PROPERTY TAX TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR DURHAM THAT MEANS INCOME STREAM OF $2.5 MILLION AND AS THE EVALUATIONS GO THAT’S ONE INDICATION THAT HAS SUPPORTED AFFORDABLE HOUSING OTHERS WE’RE REACHING PROPOSAL TO LOOK AT AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN OUR COMMUNITY AND WE SUPPOSE TO GET A ROAD MAP TO LOOK AT AFFORDABLE HOUSING WE HAVE ASSETS OF OUR OWN THAT WE CAN DO THE WORK WITH WE HAVE PUBLIC PROPERTIES THAT MIGHT LEND THEMSELVES TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING TALK ABOUT MIXED INCOME WHERE YOU HAVE MARKET RATE AS WELL AS THE LOW MEDIUM INCOME PERSONS GOOD EXAMPLE OF THAT WE HAVE TO KNOW THAT SOUTHSIDE WHERE WE DID 144 MIXED INCOME UNITS, 100% OF THOSE UNITS ARE OCCUPIED FOR LOW TO MEDIUM INCOME, 40 OF THOSE ARE FOR MARKET RATE 90% OF THOSE ARE OCCUPIED ALSO WE’VE GOT AN EXAMPLE AND MODEL THAT WE CAN BUILD ON THAT CERTAINLY AS WE LOOK AT WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING, LOOK AT WHAT THE CONSULTANT BRINGS FORTH WE’LL MOVE IN THAT DIRECTION TO MAKE SURE THAT HAPPENS IN THE CITY OF DURHAM >> GREAT LEADS RIGHT INTO THE NEXT SESSION AND ISSUE ABOUT OUR PROVERTY REDUCTION INITIATIVE YOU INTRODUCE THIS SIDE ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO HOW ABOUT LETTING US KNOW SOME ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE AND HOW PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS HAVE PLAYED A ROLE >> THAT FEEDS BACK INTO WHAT I’VE SAID EARLIER WE’VE BEEN FORTUNATE IN DURHAM TO MAKE THE PROGRESS WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE BUT WE ALSO REALIZE WE HAVE A CHALLENGE ONE OF THOSE IS THERE’S FAR TOO MUCH POVERTY IN MY OPINION FOR A COMMUNITY SUCH AS DURHAM WHAT WE’VE DONE AND I’LL SAY THE CITY ADDRESS IN 2014, WE LAID OUT A CHALLENGE AND THAT WAS TO BEGIN REDUCING PROVERTY, NEIGHBORHOOD-BY-NEIGHBORHOOD, YEAR-BY-YEAR STARTING IN 2014 WE’VE TRIED TO BE VERY FOCUSED ON THIS AND DATA DRIVEN SO WE SELECTED A PARTICULAR NEIGHBORHOOD IN NORTHEAST CENTRAL DURHAM THAT WE FIRST WANTED TO FOCUS ON WHILE IT STARTED WITH ST CITY IT’S REALLY CITY-WIDE EFFORT WE HAD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS INVOLVED, SOME SCHOOLS INVOLVED, YOOUFRTIES, SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS, MORE IMPORTANTLY WE HAD THE RESIDENTS OF THAT TARGETED AREA INVOLVED ALSO WHAT WE DID IS SET UP SIX TASK FORCE, EACH TASK FORCES ARE SORT OF ELATED TO UNDERLYING CAUSES RELATED TO POVERTY: EDUCATION, HOUSING, JOBS, FINANCE, PUBLIC SAFETY, AND HEALTH IF YOU SPEAK ABOUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED; FIRST I WANT TO COMPLIMENT THE PERSONS BEEN INVOLVED IN THIS TASK FORCE BECAUSE THIS IS VOLUNTARY EFFORT THEY’RE NOT GETTING PAID, BUT THEY’VE DONE A COMMENDABLE JOB IN COMING FORTH WITH A COMMENDABLE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES WHERE WE’RE AT NOW IS WE HAVE DEFINED AT LEAST THREE OF THOSE GOALS FOR EACH TASK FORCE AND WE’RE HOPING THAT THE YEAR 2016 WILL BE A YEAR WHERE WE BEGIN TO EXECUTE SOME OF THOSE GOALS TOWARDS THOSE GOALS ONE OF THOSE THAT WAS SET UP OUT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE IS CHAIRED BY COUNCIL MEMBER SCHEWEL AND COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AUSTIN AND MS.

AND IF THE ONLY WAY TO PROCEED IN THE ABSENCE OF A PLAN AND WE RECOGNIZE THAT GETTING A FULL PLAN IN PLACE WOULD TAKE CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF TIME T ONLY WAY I THINK TO PROCEED WITH CONFIDENCE IS WITH A MORE SUBSTANTIAL COMMITMENT ON THE PART DEVELOPER TO PROVIDING UNITS AND TO DO THAT IN PHASE ONE NOT JUST IN PHASE TWO SO WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO THINK ABOUT THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS, TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT THIS IS THE RIGHT DECISION, TO SAY THAT WE’RE TRIPLE THE NUMBER OF AFFORDABLE UNITS SH REMEMBER TEN OF THOSE ARE MARKET RATE AND WILL NOT STAY AFFORDABLE FOR VERY LONG I THINK WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS TO LOOK FOR WAYS TO ALL WORK TOGETHER, THE CITY, WITH PARTNERS, COMMUNITY, NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS THAT CAN PROVIDE ASSISTANCE WITH THE APPROACH THAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A CERTIFIABLE EFFORT TO MEET TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS THANK YOU [APPLAUSE] >> GOOD EVENING, COUNCIL MEMBERS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, EVERYONE WHO WORKS FOR THE CITY SO I FEEL LIKE I’M KIND OF LIKE THE RANDOM — JERRY GOLD SEEN THE, 304 — CHAPEL HILL I’M LIKE THE RANDOM BLACK DOT THAT’S IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DEVELOPMENT EARLIER NOT NECESSARILY COMING WITH EVERYBODY ELSE BUT AM IN OPPOSAL AND DEFINITELY A DELAY SO I JUST WORK FOR A COMPANY NEAR DURHAM WHEN THE PLANNING COMMISSION VOTES 8 WILL HAVE 2 TO DENY AND SEND IT BACK, USUALLY THAT MEANS SHUT IT DOWN AND COME BACK TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION SO TO THEM JUST SHOW UP AT CITY COUNCIL AND MAKE CHANGES LAST MINUTE REVEAL THOSE TO THE PUBLIC RIGHT IN FRONT OF EVERYONE BEFORE THEY HAVE TIME TO UNDERSTAND, I DON’T THINK THAT’S GOOD BUSINESS I ALSO DON’T THINK IT’S GREAT BUSINESS TO BE BRINGING IT UP WHEN I WAS TOLD BY POLICE DEPARTMENT TO STAY OFF THE ROADS ALL DAY AND THEN WE STILL ARE THE MEETING THIS EVENING I DON’T THINK THAT’S GOOD BUSINESS EITHER SO I’LL BE BRIEF I’M GOING TO BE A NEIGHBOR, I’M GOING BE CLOSE BY, I’M NOT WITHIN A THOUSAND FEET, UM, BUT I FEEL LIKE IF EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO WAIT FOR THE FINDINGS TO COME BACK IN WHAT’S APPROVED AND HOW WE WANT THE AREA DOPED THEN I DON’T UNDERSTAND OF HOW WE’RE PLAYING FAVORITES OF LETTING THIS ONE GO FORWARD I THINK THEY NEED TO WAIT WITH EVERYONE ELSE

THE CITY OF DURHAM SINCE THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING GOAL WAS ADOPTED WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE CITY IS WORKING DILIGENTLY TO DEVELOP AND ADOPT A PROGRAM AND EVEN THOUGH THAT PROGRAM ISN’T IN PLACE TODAY, YOU AND THE RESIDENCE OF DURHAM DON’T WANT TO MISS AN IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE POSITIVE STEPS TOWARDS THE CITY’S GOAL WE BELIEVE OFFERING AAFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS IN OUR SECOND RESIDENTIAL PHASE IS A WIN/WIN BECAUSE WE ARE PROVIDING SOUTHWEST DURHAM WITH AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS IN A NEW APARTMENT COMMUNITY AND ALSO GIVING THE CITY TIME TO ADOPT ITS AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROGRAM THAT’S MY HIGH WILL HAVE LEVEL ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION I’VE TRIED TO DESCRIBE AT PLANNING COMMISSION AND TO SOME OF YOU BEFORE THIS THAT, UM, OUR COMPANIES DONE 700 AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS ACROSS THE COUNTRY SINCE THE RECESSION SO JUST THIS CYCLE ALL OF THOSE UNITS WERER IN CITIES WITH AN ADOPTED PROGRAM — ALL OF THEM WE HAVE NOT YET BUILT IN A CITY WITHOUT AN ADOPTED PROGRAM OUR FIRM, OUR FINANCIAL PARTNER, AND OUR CONSTRUCTION LENDER BELIEVE IT IS ESSENTIAL TO COMPLY WITH ALL THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF ADOPT CITY PROGRAMS AND POLICIES BY OFFERING THE UNITS IN OUR PHASE TWO RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT WE HOPE TO ALLOW THE CITY TIME, SUFFICIENT TIME TO DEVELOP AND ADOPT A PROGRAM IT’S VITALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE’RE ABLE TO GET AN ANNUAL CERTIFICATION WITHOUT A PROGRAM, THE CITY CAN’T GIVE US THAT YOU CAN SEE BY THE TEXT THAT WE’VE CRAFTED WE HAVE EVEN VOLUNTEERED TO PROVIDE THE DATA TO YOU TO PROVE THAT WE’RE IN COMPLIANCE UNTIL YOU HAVE A PROGRAM IN PLACE WHERE YOU CAN TELL US WE’RE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WE’VE ALSO OFFERED TO PAY A PENALTY, AGAIN THAT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE PART OF A PROGRAM YOU’LL HAVE SOMEDAY IN THE FUTURE WE’RE TRYING TO THINK THROUGH ALL THE REALLY IMPORTANT STEPS THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE PRESENT IN A CITY IN AN ADOPTED PROGRAM AND TRYING TO GIVE THOSE TO YOU NOW IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITHIN THE RULES AND WITHIN THE REGULATIONS AND TO BE ABLE TO GET CERTIFICATIONS AND WE’RE REALLY STEPPING OUT ON A LIMB HERE AND TAKING QUITE A RISK FOR OUR COMPANY EACH PHASE IS A $50 MILLION PROJECT AND YOU’RE ASKING US TO GO TO THOSE THAT HAVE INVESTED IN THE PROJ AND LOONERS AND THEY’LL HAVE TO TAKE OUR WORD THAT WE’RE IN COMPLIANCE BECAUSE THERE IS NO POLICY YET BUT I THINK IF YOU WOULD ALLOW US TO DO THESE UNITS IN PHASE TWO THERE WILL BE A PROGRAM IN PLACE AND WE’LL BE ABLE TO GET REALLY THE ONE THING WE’RE ASKING WHICH IS AN ABILITY TO PLAY WITHIN THE RULES OF THE GAME AND TO BASEBALL TO GET AN ANNUAL CERTIFICATION UM… I’D ALSO LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT IN THE EVENT YOU DON’T HAVE A PROGRAM IN PLACE BY THE TIME WE GET TO OUR SECOND PHASE — [LOW AUDIO] — I JUST, I WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT IF THERE’S NOT A PROGRAM IN PLACE BY THE TIME PHASE TWO, BECAUSE WE’RE ADDING IT AS A TEXT COMMITMENT TONIGHT TO THIS REZONING WE WILL STILL BE REQUIRED TO DO THAT FOR YOU AND YOU STILL WILL GET THESE UNITS EVEN IF IT TAKES LONGER THAN YOU THINK FOR THE PROGRAM TO BE ADOPTED THANKS >> WHERE ARE SOME OF THE OTHER CITIES WHERE YOU’VE DONE AFFORDABLE HOUSING >> GOOD QUESTION UM, WE HAVE CONSTRUCTED — WE’RE A NATIONWIDE FIRM, SECOND OR THIRD LARGEST FAMILY BUILDER IN THE COUNTRY WE HAVE BUILT AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS MARYLAND, CALIFORNIA, LOS ANG LAS, CALIFORNIA, DELL RAY BEACH, FLORIDA, GREATER BALLTIMORE, WASHINGTON D.C. AREA AND DALLAS, TEXAS >> YOU SAID IN THE EVENT WE DO NOT HAVE A PROGRAM IN PLACE WHEN YOU BEGUN PHASE TWO THAT YOU WOULD GO ON AND PROVIDE AFFORDABLE — WHY CAN’T YOU DO THAT NOW? >> WELL, WE WOULD REALLY LIKE TO ASK YOU TO DO US THE FAVOR OF, UM, WORKING WITH US DEVELOP RATIVELY TO GIVE US THE ONE THING WE’RE ASKING YOU FOR WHICH IS THE ABILITY FOR TO YOU GET YOUR PROGRAM IN PLACE SO WE CAN GET AN ANNUAL CERTIFICATION LETTER WE’VE TALKED WITH STAFF AND I’M SAYING THIS TO PUT THEM ON THE SPOT BUT I DO BELIEVE IT’S NOT POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO GIVE US AN ANNUAL CERTIFICATION LETTER OF COMPLIANCE SAYING WE’RE DOING WHAT WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING IF THERE’S NO PROGRAM THAT OUTLINE WHAT IS WE’RE SUPPOSED

TO BE DOING THAT’S A TREMENDOUS RISK FOR AN CONSTITUTIONAL FIRM SUCH AS OURS WITH INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS, JUST FRANKLY WE GET A CONSTRUCTION LOAN, PUT A LOT OF EQUITY IN THESE DEALS SO WE’RE VERY CONSERVATIVE DEVELOPER, INVEST A LOT OF MONEY IN THE DEAL BUT EVERYBODY OUR CONSTRUCTION LENDER AT 65% WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT WE’VE COMPLIED WITH ALL THE RULES WE PRINTED THIS OUT AT THE PLANNING COMMISSION AND I’LL JUST HOLD IT UP BRIEFLY THIS LIST IS IN THE STAFF REPORT THESE ARE ALL THE PROGRAMS THAT THE CITY OF DURHAM HAS IN PLACE RIGHT NOW THAT WE ARE COMPLYING WITH AND YOU’LL SEE CHECK, CHECK, CHECK THE BOX WE’RE REPUTABLE DEVELOPER, TRY TO DO A GOOD JOB, PLAY BY THE RULES AND WHAT YOU’RE ASKING US TO DO IS PLAY OUTSIDE OF THE RULES, OUTSIDE OF THE BOX AND WE’RE DOING THE VERY BEST WE CAN AND ALL WE’RE ASKING FOR IN EXCHANGE IS THAT YOU GIVE US A LITTLE BIT OF TIME FOR YOUR PROGRAM TO BE WRITTEN AND ADOPTED AND PUT IN PLACE SO THAT WE HAVE A HOPE THAT BY PHASE TWO WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO AND GET THE LETTERS WE NEED IT CREATES A TREMENDOUS RISK FOR OUR PROJECT TO NOT BE ABLE TO GET THAT CERTIFICATION FROM THE CITY COULD I HAVE ONE MORE QUESTION? >> WHAT IS IS THE RATIONALE FOR NOT HAVING 90 UNITS? >> THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION AND YOU’RE NOT GOING TO LIKE THE ANSWER BUT I WILL, UM, SHARE IT WITH YOU I THINK, SIMPLY PUT, UM, THE PROGRAM — THE GOAL THE CITY HAS ADOPTED, 15% OF ALL UNITS AT 60% AMI IS NOT FINANCIALLY FEEZ NBL THE CITY OF DURHAM AT THIS POINT IN TIME — FEASIBLE THIS PROJECT WILL GO AWAY AND I CAN’T SPEAK FOR OTHER DEVELOPERS, BUT I’VE BEEN DOING THIS SINCE 1993 IN DURHAM, I’VE BROUGHT YOU MANY COMMUNITIES, WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN ON THE CUTTING EDGE, ALWAYS WORKED WITH NEIGHBORS, WE’VE ALWAYS DONE WHAT THIS CITY HAS ASKED AND HELPED THEM MEET THEIR GOALS AND I CAN TELL YOU IF YOU WOULD TRUST ME THE MATH DOESN’T WORK, IT’S NOT POSSIBLE PLANNING STAFF PRESENTED A LOVELY SESSION, THEY’VE DONE MULTIPLE EDUCATION SESSIONS FOR THE PUBLIC, I’VE ATTENDED THOSE, THEY’VE RUN THE NUMBERS WITH SELF-HELP, HELPING THEM CRAFT THOSE NUMBERS AND ON A DEAL OF OUR SIZE, FOR EXAMPLE A $45 MILLION DEAL, THERE’S ABOUT A 4.5 TO $5 MILLION FINANCIAL GAP THAT CANNOT BE MET BY THE PRIVATE DEVELOPERER ALONE NOW IF THE CITY CREATES AN AFFORDABLE PROGRAM AND HAS A TOOL BOX THAT PROVIDES SOME PUBLIC FUNDING, THEN WE CAN BEGIN TO BRIDGE THAT GAP AND BRING IT DOWN AS IT IS, TONIGHT, WHAT WE’RE OFFERING YOU PRESENTS A SUBSTANTIAL FINANCIAL BURDEN TO THE PROJECT AND THE FACT THAT WE’RE ALSO GIVE G YOU $1.7 MILLION WORTH OF ROADWAY IMPROVEMENTS, BUILDING THREE THOUSAND FEET OF WATER LINE, WE’RE DOING A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF IMPROVEMENTS ALL THAT MONEY GOING TO THE CITY OF DURHAM BUT I CAN’T DO BOTH, I CAN’T DO A LOT OF THE AFFORDABLE UNITS AND $1.7 MILLION WORTH OF ROADWAY IMPROVEMENTS, IT’S JUST TOO TAXING ON ONE DEAL AND I THINK GOING FORWARD IF YOU GUYS WOULD CONSIDER WORKING WITH MULTIFAMILY COMMUNITY, MYSELF AND OTHER DEVELOPER WITH THE LOCAL FIRMS HERE, MANY OF WHOM ARE NATIONAL AS WELL, WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP YOU LOOK AT OUR NUMBERS AND UNDERSTAND WHAT WE CAN AFFORDABLE TO DO AND WHICH TYPES OF INCENTIVES ARE THE MOST MEANINGFUL TO US AND FOR US WE’VE OFFERED THAT BUT IT WASN’T REALLY APPROPRIATE GIVEN WE’RE IN REZONING TO GET INTO THAT PROCESS RIGHT NOW I’VE SPOKEN WITH SOME COUNCIL MEMBERS WE’D BE THRILLED TO DO WE’VE BEEN HERE A LONG TIME AND WILL CONTINUE WE E FULLY BELIEVE IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING BUT IT’S VERY DIFFICULT ON THE FINANCES OF A PROJECT WHAT I’VE OFFERED YOU I BELIEVE IS AS FAR AS WE CAN TAKE IT GIVEN THE ROADWAY IMPROVEMENTS AND MAKE THIS PROJECT WORK THANK YOU >> RECOGNIZE COUNCIL MEMBER JOHNSON >> THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR I HAVE A GENERAL STATEMENT AND FEW QUESTIONS FOR STEVE MEDLIN IF YOU DON’T MIND FIRST I E JUST WANT TO SAY, I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL FOR ADD AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO THIS PLAN I THINK IT’S AN IMPORTANT FIRST STEP I A AGREE WITH THE COMMUNITY FOLKS THAT WE REALLY NEED TO BE PURSUING OUR GOAL OF 15% AND RIGHT NOW I THINK THAT IT’S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT FOR US TO GET THERE IF WE APPROVE PLANS THAT DON’T INCLUDE SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING I THINK I AGREE IN YOU IN THAT THERE NEEDS TO BE A PROGRAM IN PLACE IN ORDER FOR DEVELOPER TO REALLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF RESOURCES AN OPPORTUNITIES THAT THE CITY COULD PUT IN PLACE AROUND AFFORDABLE HOUSING BUT I THINK I E WOULD ARGUE THAT THAT MEANS THAT WE NEED TO WAIT A LITTLE BIT LONGER TO GET OUR PLAN IN PLACE BEFORE WE WOULD

APPROVE A REZONING FOR THIS AREA SO I WANTED TO ASK — [APPLAUSE] AND I THINK THAT — SO WHEN I SPOKE TO YOU BEFORE SH WE WERE LOOKING AT SEVERAL-YEAR DESIGN DISTRICT IN PLACE BUT I THINK AFFORDABLE HOUSING PLAN WILL ACTUALLY BE READY MUCH SOONER THAN THAT WE HAVE CONSULTANT WORKING ON IT NOW WE’RE STEAD SCHEDULED TO GET A PRESENTATION ON IT NEXT MONTH THIS CITY WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE OPTIONS READY IN A MUCH MORE REASONABLE TIME FRAME I WAS ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT REZONING FOR DESIGN DISTRICT SO I WANTED TO ASK YOU, STEVE, IF YOU THINK THAT DESIGN DISTRICT STANDARDS FOR LEE VILLAGE WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM DOWNTOWN OR FROM NINTH STREET AND IF THIS CITY WERE TO COMMIT THE RESOURCES YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN, WHAT IS THE FASTEST WE COULD GET THAT ONLINE >> STEVE MEDLIN WITH PLANNING DEPARTMENT FIRST, THE DESIGN STANDARDS LET ME FIRST CLARIFY THAT THE AREA IN QUESTION IS ACTUALLY IN THE SUBURBAN TRANSIT AREA ALREADY AS A SITE IN SU BURR TRANSIT AREA THEY HAVE OPTION OF DEVELOPING UNDER DESIGN STANDARDS AND THAT’S WHAT THEY’VE ELECTED TO DO WHICH MEANS THAT STATED BY APPLICANT THEY’RE BRINGING BUILDINGS CLOSER TO STREET, THEY TRY TO INTEGRATE COMPONENTS THAT MAKE IT MORE OF A HUMAN SCALE DEVELOPMENT WHEN YOU’RE AT THE STREET LEVEL IN TERMS OF TRYING TO ACTIVATE THAT FRONTAGE, BUT HAVING SAID THAT I WILL TELL YOU AT THIS POINT THE DESIGN DISTRICTS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM DOWNTOWN TO NINTH STREET AND WE WOULD ENVISION THAT EACH OF THE REMAINING FIVE COMPACT NEIGHBORHOOD AREAS WOULD HAVE TO BE EVALUATED INDIVIDUALLY TO DETERMINE WHAT ARE THE APPROPRIATE DESIGN DISTRICT STANDARDS, BUT I WOULD THINK THAT THEY WOULD BE SOMEWHAT CONSISTENT WITH WHAT YOU’RE SEEING IN NINTH STREET AREA TO A GREAT DEAL SIMPLY E BECAUSE FOR FAMILIAR WITH DESIGN DISTRICT YOU REALIZE THAT IS COMPOSED OF THREE SUB DISTRICTS YOU HAVE YOUR PEDESTRIAN CORE AREA, SUPPORT ONE, AND SUPPORT TWO AREAS OBVIOUSLY THE AREA IN QUESTION HERE IS NOT GOING TO BE IN THE CORE BUT IT’S GOING TO CAN BE CLOSER TO SUPPORT TWO AREA THAN SUPPORT ONE DESIGNATION SO WHAT WE WOULD ENVISION IS WHAT THEY HAVE PROPOSED WOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH WHAT YOU’RE SEEING IN TERMS OF TIMELINE, FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT SERVE ON JOINT FOR THE COUNTY YOU’RE AWARE OF THIS WE DID AN INITIAL DISCUSSION AT LAST MEETING AND THE BODY ASKED US TO ELEVATE THE DESIGN DISTRICTS TO THE EXTENT THAT WE CAN WITHIN OUR WORK PROGRAM WE HAVE GONE BACK, WE ARE GOING TO PROPOSE AND I WANT TO BE CLEAR NONE OF THIS HAS BEEN VETTED THROUGH THE MANAGER’S OFFICES OS OR THROUGH THE BUDGET PROCESS AT THIS POINT BUT WE ARE GOING TO PROPOSE ELEVATING THREE DESIGN DISTRICTS TO MOVE FORWARD IN THIS NEXT FISCAL YEAR BEGINNING IN JULY 1ST OF THIS YEAR THAT WOULD BE INUH CLU SIEVE OF PATTERSON PLACE, LEE VILLAGE, AND ONE ADDITIONAL ONE IN ORDER FOR US TO DO A THAT, WE’RE HAVING TO MOVE THINGS AROUND AND ASK FOR ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT, BUT HAVING SAID THAT, AS I MENTIONED TO YOU COUNCIL MEMBER, THE FAST ET CETERA TIMELINE WE’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET A DESIGN DISTRICT FROM START TO FINISH HONESTLY WOULD BE THREE YEARS FROM THE TIME THAT WE BEGIN THAT, THAT EFFORT AT THIS POINT WE WOULD ENVISION WE’RE LOOKING AT THREE-AND-A-HALF YEAR PERIOD BEFORE WE WOULD ACTUALLY HAVE DESIGN DISTRICT IN PLACE POTENTIALLY IN THE LEE VILLAGE AREA >> THANK YOU YES, SO I DO RECOGNIZE THAT’S A VERY LONG DELAY FOR YOU ALL AND I DON’T THINK THAT — I THINK THAT THIS PROPOSAL IS VERY GOOD PROPOSAL I THINK IT HITS A LOT OF WHAT WE WANT IN THIS AREA IN TERMS OF DENSITY, WALKABILITY, PEDESTRIAN ACCESS BUT I THINK THIS PROPOSAL IS VERY MUCH WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR I THINK THAT WHERE I WOULD LIKE TO COMPROMISE IS TO SAY THAT I WOULD LIKE YOU ALL TO — I WOULD LIKE TO WAIT TO APPROVE THIS PROJECT UNTIL OUR AFFORDABLE HOUSING PLAN IS IN PLACE BECAUSE I THINK THAT WILL HELP US FIGURE OUT HOW TO HELP YOU PROVIDE MORE UNITS GETTING CLOSER TO OUR GOAL, AND THAT THAT WOULD BE A REASONABLE WAY TO MOVE FORWARD ON THIS ISSUE I REALLY THAT IT’S NOT THE PROPOSAL, I ENJOYED YOUR PRESENTATION, I REALLY THINK IT’S A GREAT PROPOSAL, GREAT DEVELOPMENT, BUT THAT THE TIMING REALLY IS IS THE ISSUE IN THAT I HEAR YOU ON NOT HAVING A PLAN AND NOT HAVING THINGS YOU NEED

TO MAKE THE DEAL WORK AND I WANT US TO TRY TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN >> RECOGNIZE COUNCIL MEMBER MOFFITT YOU DID HAVE YOUR HAND UP? >> MR. MEDLIN, EVERY PIECE OF PROPERTY IN DURHAM HAS A RIGHT FOR SOME DEVELOPMENT ON IT WHAT’S BY RIGHT DEVELOPMENT ON THIS PROPERTY NOW? >> THE CURRENT ZONING ON THESE PROPERTIES ARE RS 20 WHICH WOULD BE A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT, BASICALLY IT HAS EQUIVALENCY OF TWO UNITS TO THE ACRE GIVE OR TAKE WITH PORTION OF THE SITE WHICH IS TO IS SOUTH WHICH IS CURRENTLY ZONES OI FOR THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN — THAT WOULD BE ENTITLED TO DEVELOP UNDER THAT DEVELOPMENT PLAN >> MS. ANDERSON YOU CAN JUST NOD YOUR HEAD DO YOU ALL OWN THE PROPERTY? OBVIOUSLY HAVE AN OPTION ON THE PROPERTY IF ZONING FAILS AND THE OPTION AND THEY’RE NOT ABLE TO EXTEND THE OPTION BEYOND ITS CURRENT OPTION PERIOD AND THE CURRENT OWNER DECIDES TO DEVELOP IT IN KEEPING WITH ITS BY RIGHT DEVELOPMENT, CAN YOU GIVE AN OPINION ON HOW WELL THAT FITS WITH OUR LONG-RANGE VISION FOR THIS AREA? >> I WOULD SIMPLY SAY BECAUSE THE AREA IS WITHIN THE SUBURBAN TRANSIT AREA DEVELOPMENT AT RS 20 DENSITY WOULD NOT BE CONSISTENT WITH LONG-RANGE VISION FOR WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE DENSITY WOULD BE LOW AND NOT SUPPORTIVE OF EITHER BLACK WELL SYSTEM OR INTENSITY DENSITY WE’D LIKE TO SEE IN THE AREA >> I WAS GOING ASK IF THE CURRENT OWNER OR SOMEBODY ELSE WHO ACQUIRES THE PROPERTY DEVELOPS IT IN ITS BY RIGHT DEVELOPMENT, THE APPLICANT IS PROFFERED A NUMBER OF COMMITTED AMOUNT ELEMENT WHICH IS GO WITH DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND A ZONING BUT THIS IF THIS ZONING PLAN AND IT’S DEVELOPMENT BY RIGHT WHICH OF THOSE COMMITTED ELEMENTS CAN WE EXPECT TO BE — WHICH OF THOSE COMMITTED ELEMENTS WOULD BE PART OF THAT BY RIGHT DEVELOPMENT? >> NONE OF THEM >> NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING, NO IMPROVEMENTS TO ROAD SYSTEMS >> THAT IS CORRECT >> OKAY SO MS. ANDERSON YOU SAID WE NEED TO TAKE YOUR WORD ON THAT THIS PROJECT COULDN’T SUPPORT MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING BUT WE DON’T ACTUALLY NEED TO, WE HAVE A CONSULTANT AND SHE’S MADE PRESENTATIONS TO US AND MADE SPECIFICALLY THAT POINT THAT AFFORDABLE HOUSING IT CREATE FAUNSDING GAP BECAUSE THE INCOME STREAM FROM THE MARKET RATE RENT CAN’T COVER THE COST OF DEVELOPING THE PROJECT SO AND I KNOW FROM MY COURSES IN ECONOMICS THAT EVERY TIME YOU’VE ADDED IN AN AFFORDABLE UNIT TO YOUR PROJECT THAT THAT HAS TO BE COVERED BY THE HIGHER RENTS ON THE REMAINING UNITS IN THE PROJECT SO I THINK THAT WHAT I HOPE TO SEE, WHAT I’VE REALIZED IN THINKING THROUGH THIS PROJECT IS THAT ONE, THE PLACE THAT WE NEED TO GET TO IS PUBLIC INVESTMENT, THAT WE REALLY NEED BE THINKING ABOUT HOW DO WE DO THE KIND OF FINANCIAL SENSITIVES WE DO IN ORDER TO ENCOURAGE THE KIND OF DEVELOPMENT WE WANT DOWNTOWN, FOR EXAMPLE, HOW DO WE USE THAT SAME KIND OF APPROACH TO ENCOURAGE WHAT WE WANT TO SEE IN OTHER AREAS? AND BECAUSE THERE’S A FUNDING GAP THAT HAS TO BE CLOSED ACCORDING TO OUR CONSULTANT BY PUBLIC INVESTMENT AND THAT’S HOW WE’RE GOING TO GET TO 15% THE CONCERN I HAVE ABOUT THIS APPLICATION, SHOULD IT FAIL, IS WHAT HAPPENS INSTEAD BECAUSE IT’S NEVER THIS OR SOMETHING BETTER, IT’S THIS OR SOMETHING ELSE AND IN THE TIME I SPENT ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION IN CONSIDERING CASES LIKE THIS NOT WITH THE SAME ISSUES BUT THE QUESTION WAS ALWAYS IS WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT SUBSTANTIALLY MORE BENEFICIAL TO THE CITY THAN IF WHAT’S CURRENTLY IN PLACE? AND THAT’S SORT OF THE, THE RATING SYSTEM — I’VE LOST THE TERM — THE METRIC I’M USING TONIGHT TO THINK ABOUT THIS

PROJECT THANK YOU >> DON, YOU’VE REALLY ALMOST TAKEN THE THE WORDS OUT OF MY MOUTH TO A CERTAIN EXTENT ON THIS DEVELOPMENT WHEN ASK — AFFORDABLE HOUSING STANDARD I COULD HAVE STOOD BECAUSE I SU SUPPORT AFOSHLD HOUSING IN THIS COMMUNITY I UNDERSTAND AFFORDABLE HOUSING, I UNDERSTAND ISSUES WE’RE GOING THROUGH, BUT I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT DON HAS GIVEN IT CLEARLY, WE HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO COME UP WITH A TOOL WE ARE HAVE NOT BEEN A ABLE TO COME UP WITH A TOOL THAT WILL ENCOURAGE A AFFORDABLE HOUSING AT THE RATE THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT NOW I’LL ALSO REMIND YOU THAT THIS IS A GOAL DOESN’T MEAN IT’S IN CONCRETE THAT WE HAVE GOT TO HAVE 15%, IT’S THE GOAL IN SOME PLACES IT MAY APPLY IN SOME PLACES IT MAY NOT APPLY I’VE LOOKED AT OTHER AREAS WHERE WE HAVE TRANSIT STOPS IN TERMS OF HOW THE ZONING IS NOW PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO GO IN AND DEVELOP THE PROJECT RIGHT NOW AT THE R 20 RATE, DON’T DO ANY ROAD IMPROVEMENTS, DON’T DO ANYTHING IT MEETS ALL OF THE PROPERTIES GOAL BUT IT’S NOT GOING TO BE OUR GOAL IN TERMS OF HAVING HIGH DENSITY AROUND TRANSIT STOPS AT SOME POINT IN TIME WE’VE GOT TO TALK ABOUT COMPROMISES OR TALK ABOUT PUTTING CITY MONEY INTO FILLING THAT GAP THAT’S THE ONLY WAY IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ‘CUZ WE HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO COME UP WITH ENOUGH CREATIVE TOOLS TO GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE NEED TO BE SO FOR ME, I DON’T KNOW WHAT A DELIE LEI IS GOING TO DO, I’M WILLING TO UH SUPPORT A DELAY IF WE CAN THINK WE D DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT QUALITY DEVELOPMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HAVING HIGH DENSITY AROUND TRANSIT STOPS WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THOSE HIGH DENSITY AREAS, BUT SOMEBODY’S GOT TO PAY THAT IF THE COUNCIL’S WILLING TO FILL THAT GAP THAT’S ANOTHER WAY TO MAKE IT HAPPEN BUT I HAVEN’T HEARD THAT I THINK WE GOT TO BE REALISTIC PRAGMATIC WHEN WE TALK ABOUT GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THIS COMMUNITY, WHERE WE WANT IT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT CHAPEL HILL CHAPEL HILL’S TALKING ABOUT 80 P80%, OKAY OUR GOAL IS 60% AMI THAT’S ANOTHER GAP TO BE FILLED UNLESS WE HAVE TOOLS TO DO THAT WE’RE GOING TO PUT PUTT OURSELVES IN POSITION THAT NOTHING HAPPENS AT THE SCALE WE WANT IT TO DO AND THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN WE DON’T HAVE CONTROL OVER IS GOING TO HAPPEN DON MADE ALTERNATIVES SO I’LL PAUSE NOW AND LET MY OTHER COUNCIL PERSONS SPEAK ON THAT, BUT I RECOGNIZE COUNCIL MEMBER REECE AND COUNCIL MEMBER DAVIS AND ANYBODY ELSE >> THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR I HAD COUPLE QUESTIONS FOR MR. MEDLIN YOU’RE ON THE SPOT AGAIN, MR. MEDLIN COUNCIL MEMBER MOFFITT ASKED SORT OF WHAT THE DEVELOPMENT BY RIGHT WAS ON THAT PROPERTY AND YOU MENTIONED THAT IF THE DEVELOPMENT WERE IF THE PROPERTY WERE DEVELOPED IN THAT WAY IT WOULD NOT BE CONSISTENT WITH OUR FUTURE PLANS FOR THAT PARTICULAR AREA; IS THAT CORRECT? >> THAT IS CORRECT >> CAN YOU — I THINK THIS ANALYSIS HAS BEEN DONE, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE AVAILABLE AREA WITHIN THAT TRANSIT ZONE IS OCCUPIED BY THIS PARTICULAR PROPERTY? >> SURE THE ACTUAL PERCENTAGE IS FAIRLY LOW, LESS THAN FIVE PERCENT OF THE TOTAL FUTURE COMPACT NEIGHBORHOOD AREA IN FACT, THE RESIDENTIAL COMPONENT OF THE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT IS EVEN LESS THAN THAT, SO A LITTLE OVER THREE-AND-A-HALFER PERCENT THANK YOU I JUST WANTED TO POINT THAT OUT I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERN ABOUT IF NOT THIS, WHAT ELSE IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THIS PROPERTY THE AND I THINK THAT’S INCREDIBLY VALID, BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION BY PROPONENTS A COUPLE TIMES AND BY OTHER FOLKS WHO’VE LOOKED AT THIS UH BUT I WANT TO RESPOND TO THAT POINT BY SAYING EVEN IN THE QUOTE UNQUOTE WORSE CASE SCENARIO IF IT WERE DEVELOPEDED BY RIGHT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A TINY, TINY FRACTION OF WHAT’S IN THIS PARTICULAR ZONE UH I SAY THAT NOT TO DISCOUNT HOW DISAPPOINTING THAT MIGHT BE IF THIS CITY COUNCIL WERE TO DENY THE REZONING REQUEST AND THE PROPERTY OWNER WERE TO DEVELOP 40 SINGLE FAMILY HOMES IN THAT SPOT WITHIN A HALF HIEL RADIUS OF THE FUTURE LITE RAIL TRANSIT STOP, THAT WOULD NOT BE A POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT OR DESIGN OUTCOME, BUT I JUST WANTED TO POINT THEOUT IT’S NOT LIKE IT’S A THIRD OF THE DISTRICT OR A QUARTER OF THE DISTRICT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THREE PERCENT OF THE RESIDENTIAL, LESS THAN FIVE PERCENT OF THE REAL PROPERTY

TWHAN DISTRICT AND SINCE I HAVE THE MICROPHONE BUT I DON’T HAVE IS ANY OTHER QUESTIONS LET ME JUST SAY THAT I VERY MUCH WANT TO ASSOCIATE MYSELF WITH THE COMMENTS THAT MY COLLEAGUE COUNCIL MEMBER JOHNSON MADE TONIGHT WE JUST WENT THROUGH AN ELECTION PERIOD WHERE EVERY CANDIDATE WHO RAN FOR CITY COUNCIL COULDN’T TALK LOUDLY ENOUGH ABOUT THEIR COMMITMENT TO MAKING SURE THAT THIS CITY I REMAINS AFFORDABLE FOR WORKING FAMILIES AND I DON’T, I E UNDERSTAND THE FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE KIND OF COMMITMENT THAT OUR GOAL PUTS IN FRONT OF DEVELOPERS, UM, AND BUT WHEN I LOOK AT THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT, I BALANCE THAT PARTICULAR ISSUE AGAINST THE INCREDIBLE WORK THAT THIS DEVELOPMENT TEAM HAS PUT INTO PUTTING TOGETHER A PROPOSE THAT WILL I DO BELIEVE IS UNPRECEDENTED IN THE CITY OF DURHAM I DON’T BELIEVE THERE’S BEEN A PRIVATE DEVELOPER WHO’S PUT AFFORDABLE UNITS ON THE TABLE IN THE WAY THIS DROP DEVELOPER HAS THIS IS THE FIRST ONES OF I’VE BEEN THROUGH BUT I CAN’T IMAGINE A DEVELOPER WORKING HARDER OVER THE LAST MONTH OR SO, TWO MONTHS, TO TRY TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING THAT WOULD SATISFY MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL AND I’LL JUST LET YOU KNOW I RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM DEB ANDERSON AT 7:08 P.M. SATURDAY THAT ADDRESSING CONCERNS FROM THE COMMUNITY AND THE COMMITTED ELEMENTS THAT ARE A PART OF THIS PROJECT ARE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BENEFIT THAT INTERSECTION, BUT I THINK WHEN WE BALANCE THOSE FORCES AGAINST EACH OTHER THE OTHER THING THAT SCOMBOOMS PLAY FOR ME — COMES INTO PLAY FOR ME E IS SOMETHING THAT’S ASSOCIATED WITH THE WRITTEN COMMENTS THAT WERE COMMITTED BY COMMISSIONER TOM MILLER AT THE PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING, AND HIS POINT WAS THAT WE ARE JUST EMBARKING ON THE PROCESS SOFT FIGURING OUT AS A CITY FROM A PLANNING PERSPECTIVE WHAT WE WANT THESE DESIGN DISTRICTS AROUND THE LITE RAIL STOPS TO LOOK LIKE WE ARE JUST BEGIN THE PROCESS OF REACHING OUT TO THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE CLOSEST TO THESE STOPS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE THERE, WHAT DO WE WANT TO SEE FROM AN URBAN PLANNING PERSPECTIVE AND TO APPROVE A PROJECT WITH THIS MANY RESIDENTIAL UNITS INTO A SPOT THAT ISN’T PARTICULARLY CLOSE TO THE STOP, IT’S ON THE OUTSIDE EDGE OF THE RADIUS BUT ALSO IT’S JUST SO LARGE COMPARED TO WHAT ELSE IS THERE, ISN’T JUST PUTTING A CART BEFORE THE HORSE IN SOME WAYS UNLESS THE CART IS A FIRE ENGINE AND THE HORSE IS A SHETLAND PONY WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY HERE AS TOM SAID THIS IS A FAIRLY CLEAN CANVAS A AT THE LEE VILLAGE AREA AND THERE’S NO NEED TO SPOIL THE WORK WE HAVE BEFORE US BEFORE WE EVEN WET OUR BRUSHES, AND SO THOSE ARE THE CONSIDERATIONS THAT I HAVE TO MAKE WHEN IT COMES FOR A VOTE AND I’M DONE, MR. MAYOR THANK YOU [APPLAUSE] >> REC NICE COUNCIL MEMBER DAVIS >> I’D LIKE TO HAVE ATTORNEY FOR THE APPLICANT TO TALK ABOUT TRAFFIC ISSUE THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT COULD YOU GIVE US A SUMMARY FOR BENEFIT OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT NECESSARILY BEEN PRIVY TO THAT INFORMATION? >> WOULD YOU LIKE SUMMARY OF THE IMPROVEMENTS WE’RE MAKING? >> THE PROPOSE THAT WILL YOU PUT FORTH IN TERMS OF TRAFFIC ISSUES, YES >> YES KATE LYNN, I MAY HAVE GIVEN YOU THAT LIST >> ROAD IMPROVEMENTS >> YEAH, JUST ONE SECOND SORRY GOT IT OKAY UM, HOLD ON TO YOUR HORSES FARRINGTON ROAD HIGH WAY 54 INTERCHANGE THESE ARE THE IMPROVEMENTS WE E PROPOSE FOR NC 54 WE’LL BE EXTENDING THE EXISTING EASTBOUND LEFT TURN LANE ON NC 54 AT FARINGTON CONSTRUCTING WESTBOUND RIGHT TURN LANE AT FARINGTON, CONSTRUCTING EXCLUSIVE EASTBOUND RIGHT LANE ON NC 54 AT FARRINGTON MODIFYING TRAFFIC SIGNALS ON FARRINGTON ROAD CONSTRUCTING CONCRETE AARON FROM NC 54 TO CLEAR, EXCLUSIVE LEFT TURN LANE ON FARRINGTON AT CLE YOUR — EXCLUSIVE NORTHBOUND LEFT TURN LANE AT FARINGTON AT RUTGERS, SECOND SOUTHBOUND LEFT TURN LANE ON FARRINGTON AT NC 54, FOUR FOOT BIKE LAIN FOR FULL FRONTAGE OF THE SITE, ONE BUS CO-OP SH CONCRETE PAD SHELTER AND BENCH SIDEWALKING, ON CLE YOUR STREET RUNS RIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF

MEDLIN, ONE THING THAT’S BEEN ASKED IS WHY DON’T WE DELAY THIS UNTIL WE HAVE SOME DECISIONS MADE AND I I UNDERSTAND YOU TO SAY TWO TO THREE MINIMUM FOR THE TIER FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOR THE COMPACT NEIGHBORHOOD TIER WHAT ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING WHERE THE TOOL BOX, THE GUIDELINES, ANY IDEAS ON THAT? >> THAT’S COMING THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT >> I APPRECIATE THAT >> MR. MEDLIN MAY NOT KNOW THAT WE DO ANTICIPATE COMING BACK TO THE COUNCIL IN MARCH WITH PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT MR. CHADWELL PROBABLY CONFIRM THE PHASE TWO OF THAT WOULD BE IMPUTATION OF GUIDELINES WITH THE TIMING THAT MIGHT BE >> CHADWELL, CITY MANAGER PROFFER CITY MANAGER IS CORRECT YOUR FIRST REPORT WILL BE PRELIMINARY AND FOR COUNCIL TO GIVER US GUIDANCE TO ENTER INTO IMPUTATION PHASE WHICH IS

SCHEDULED 6-9 MONTHS DEPENDING ON AMOUNT OF WORK THAT COMES OUT >> EARLIEST YOU’RE TALK ABOUT IS BEGINNING OF NEXT YEAR >> THAT’S CORRECT, SIR >> THANK YOU UM, I WANT TO NOTE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MR. SA VA ROE POINTED OUT IS THERE’S NO PROTECTIVE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THIS AREA NOW EXCUSE ME, VI A QUESTION FOR YOU MS. ANDERSON WHICH IS PHASE ONE, PHASE TWO, I’M ASSUMING YOU DO HAVE YOU’RE TALK ABOUT LENDERS AND SO FORTH THAT YOU’RE SET TO GO ON PHASE ONE FINANCES, IS THAT ALSO TRUE FOR PHASE TWO? >> YES >> NOT AS ANY KIND OF COMMITTED ELEMENT BUT WOULD YOU CONSIDER LOOKING AT YOUR FINANCING IN PHASE TWO AND LOOK AT HOW PUBLIC INVESTMENT MIGHT INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT COULD BE OFFERED THERE? >> ONE THING WE PUT IN TEXT COMMITMENT WE HANDED TO YOU TONIGHT WAS THAT WE WOULD NOT BE PROHIBIT FROM PARTICIPATING IN ANY INVENTIVES THE CITY DEVELOPS BETWEEN NOW AND THEN THAT’S A LITTLE BIT OF SELF-PRESERVATION ON MY PART, I ADMIT BUT IT’S ALSO IN KEEPING WITH MY BELIEF THAT IN THE NEXT YEAR OR SO YOU’LL HAVE A PROGRAM IN PLACE AND WE WOULD NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH PHASE ONE IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO CONTROL THE LAND, BUT WE HAVE TIME THE ON PHASE TWO PHASE TWO IS SCHEDULED TO FALL ABOUT A YEAR LATER AND THAT’S ALMOST EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED WHICH IS WHY WE’VE STEPPED UP AND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL WORK >> SO MY COMMENTS NOW — THANK YOU — MY COMMENTS NOW IS THAT THERE ARE TWO THINGS THAT [INDISCERNIBLE] DO FOR US THE FIRST IS THAT FUNDING FOR THE RAIL SYSTEM IT’S GOING TO HINGE IN PART ON WHAT’S DEVELOPED AROUND THE RAIL SYSTEM DEVELOPING A STATION IN A EMPTY AREA IS NOT GOING TO BE AS ATTRACTIVE TO THE IN THE PROCESS AS ACTUALLY HAVING PEOPLE IN THE AREA WHO CAN USE THE SYSTEM AS WELL AS EMPLOYMENT CENTERS — BOTH OF THOSE ARE IMPORTANT THE SECOND THING THAT ANY SUPPLY DOES FOR US IS LOWERS THE MARKET RATE IT’S A BASIC ECONOMIC PREMISE IS THAT SUPPLY AND DEMAND SET THE MARKET RATE AND THE MORE SUPPLY THAT WE HAVE THE LOWER THE MARKET RATE AND THAT IS A IMPORTANT PART OF WHAT WE SHOULD BE THINKING ABOUT AS WE LOOK AT PROJECTS LIKE THIS THIS IS JUST FURTHER THINKING THANK YOU >> RECOGNIZE COUNCIL MEMBER JOHNSON >> ANY OTHER COMMENTS BY COUNCIL MEMBERS? >> ONE OTHER THING I WANTED TO SAY WHICH IS THAT WHEN I WAS TALKING ABOUT POINTS OF DENSITY T IDEA OF BRINGING DEVELOPMENT TO A HALT AROUND OUR RAIL STATIONS FOR THE NEXT ONE TO THREE YEARS IS NOT ONE THAT I’M WILLING TO CONTEMPLATE >> RECOGNIZE COUNCIL MEMBER SCHEWEL >> THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR UM, SO JUST A COUPLE COMMENTS ONE IS, I THINK THAT I DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO GO AWAY THINKING THAT WE CAN REQUIRE 15% AFFORDABLE HOUSING ANYWHERE WE HAVE IT AS A GOAL AND IT’S A REALLY IMPORTANT GOAL AND WE NEED TO TRY TO ACHIEVE IT, BUT UNFORTUNATELY AND FOR EXAMPLE IN SOME OF THE CITIES YOU MENTIONED, PROBABLY ALL OF THEM, I DON’T KNOW, THERE ARE INCLUSIONARY ZONING ORDINANCES, OTHER KINDS OF ORDINANCES WHERE YOU CAN REQUIRE DEVELOPERS TO INCLUDE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING WE DON’T HAVE THAT IN NORTH CAROLINA BECAUSE OF OUR STATE LEGISLATURE — I WISH WE DID I DON’T THINK WE’LL EVER HAVE THAT PROGRAM IN THE SENSE THAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT IT YOU KNOW, I THINK WE WILL HAVE — I KNOW WE WILL HAVE — A TOOL THE BOX OF INCENTIVES WE ACTUALLY E HAVE INCENTIVES NOW, WE HAVEN’T PERSUADED ANY DEVELOPERS TO USE THEM YET, UM, BUT I DO THINK THAT THAT PROGRAM WILL BE THERE BUT I DON’T THINK WE’LL EVER HAVE BECAUSE OF OUR — WELL EVER — UNTIL WE STATE OUR STATE LEGISLATURE I DON’T THINK WE’LL HAVE THE KIND OF SORT OF, YOU KNOW, WE REQUIRE CERTAIN NUMBER OF UNITS, WE ASK YOU TO CERTIFY YOU HAVE THEM AND YOU A PROGRAM IN PLACE THAT — SO AND THIS DOES MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR US TO ACHIEVE OUR 15% GOAL AND I THINK THAT FOR ALL A OF YOU ALL HERE AND FOR ALL OF US THINKING ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING, I THINK A LOT OF WHAT WE THINK ABOUT IS HOW WE DO THAT WITHOUT THAT

REQUIREMENT THAT WE’RE ABLE TO PUT ON DEVELOPERS BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY IT’S DONE A LOT OF PLACES SO WE’RE STUCK, WE FALL BACK ON EITHER IN THIS CASE IS GOOD WILL OF DEVELOPERS AND/OR OUR OWN PUBLIC REE SOURCES AND THAT COULD INCLUDE LAND DOWNTOWN, IT INCLUDES PENNY FOR HOUSING AND ANY OTHER TAX DOLLAR, INCLUDES FEDERAL DOLLARS WE GET FOR HOUSING AND THAT SORT OF THING AND I’M APPRECIATIVE OF THE FACT THAT YOU ALL DID MAKE THIS THAT YOU ALL DID MAKE THIS PROFFER ON AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND I DO THINK IT’S SIGNIFICANT THAT UH YOU DID IT AND I’M APPRECIATIVE OF IT IN THAT YOU GUARANTEE THE AFFORDABILITY FOR 25 YEARS UM, I ALSO WANT TO SAY THAT IN TERMS OF THE PEOPLE THINKING SOMEHOW THAT YOU ALL ARE KIND OF AHEAD OF THE PROCESS AND SHOULDN’T B I WANT TO SAY IT’S YOU’RE CERTAINLY, YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE IS WE HAVE A PROCESS THAT YOU’VE BEEN IN THE QUEUE FOR A LONG TIME AND IT IS THE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE, IT’S THE PROCESS YOU SHOULD HAVE FOLLOWED, YOU FOLLOWED IT AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT I DON’T THINK ANYONE ELSE SHOULD HAVE ANY EITHER IT’S NOT LIKE YOUR SNEAKING IN HERE UNDER THE DEAD LINE T PROPOSAL’S BEEN IN THE QUEUE FOR YEARS SO TO ME, SO WHAT I WOULD SAY TO THE DEVELOPER IS WE HAVE OUR OBLIGATIONS TO PUBLIC INTERESTS NOT TO YOUR INTERESTS THEY CAN COME TOGETHER SOMETIMES BUT THEY’RE NEVER TOTALLY CONFIDENT SO WHEN I THINK ABOUT THIS I THINK ABOUT WHAT IS THE PUBLIC INTEREST THERE AND THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT FACTORS DON MENTIONED THE TRANSIT I THINK THAT’S NOT INSIGNIFICANT IF WE’RE GOING TO MAKE DENSITY AROUND THE TRANSIT STATIONS, THE SUCCESS OF TRANSIT MEANS AFFORDABLE TRANSPORTATION FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING SO IT’S COMPLICATED TO ME WHAT THIS IS IS KIND OF A BET THAT IS TO SAY, THE BET I WOULD HAVE TO MAKE IT WHEN I THINK ABOUT FOR MYSELF IS WILL — WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT OR LET ME PUT IT LIKE THIS — SHOULD WE TAKE THE CHANCE THAT THE UNDERLYING LAND OWNER WILL BE WILLING TO LOOK FORWARD TO THREE YEARS FROM NOW WHEN WE HAVE A COMPACT DEVELOPED NEIGHBORHOOD DISTRICT AND WANT TO DEVELOP DENSELY THERE? WILL THEY BE ABLE TO PUT IN A LOT OF SQUARE FOOTAGE WITH DENSITY WITHOUT A LOT OF REGULATIONS DESIGN DISTRICTS THERE’S LESS LEGISLATIVE RULING AND THERE’S A LOT MORE THAN YOU JUST GET A RIGHT OR BY WORKING WITH OUR PLANNING STAFF YOU GET PERMISSIONS THERE, NOT FROM US, NOT TO THE SAME EXTENT SO WOULD A DEVELOPER WHO OWNS PRIME PIECE OF LAND IN THAT SITUATION WANT TO WAIT UNTIL THAT TIME OR WOULD THEY RATHER GO AHEAD AND NOW DEVELOP THE 40 OR WHATEVER IT IS 28, I CAN’T REMEMBER THE EXACT NUMBER, SINGLE FAMILY HOMES IN THAT AREA? I WILL SAY THAT EVEN THOUGH IT’S A VERY SMALL PART OF THE TOTAL COMPACT DESIGN DISTRICT, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SINGLE FAMILY HOME OWNERS BRING WITH THEM IS OPPOSITE TO DENSITY NEXT TO THEM AND SO I DO WANT TO MAKE THAT ALSO REMIND PEOPLE OF THAT AS WELL THIS IS A UNIVERSAL PHENOMENON AND INCREASING THE NUMBER OF SINGLE FAMILY HOMES I THINK IF THAT PART OF THE BET WINS, THAT INCREASE OPPOSITION TO DENSITY THERE AND THAT’S OFTEN EFFECTIVE SO I THINK IT’S A CLOSE CALL AND I APPRECIATE, AGAIN, THE DEVELOPER’S OFFER OF THE HOUSING, THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING I DO THINK THERE’S A LOT TO RECOMMEND THE DEVELOPMENT WAS TOO BUT I ALSO THINK THAT FOR THE FUTURE IF WE CAN WAIT ‘TIL THE DESIGN DISTRICT IS READY AND IF THE BET IS CORRECT, IF A LAND OWNER WOULD RATHER HOLD ON FOR A LARGE DENSE DEVELOPMENT THEN I THINK THAT’S WORTH DOING AND I’M THINKING ABOUT WHAT THAT IS FOR THE NEXT TWO MINUTES SO THANK YOU >> LET ME — STEVE, I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS ALSO I APPRECIATE ALL THE COMMENTS

AND I DON’T WANT TO SINGLE ANY ONE COUNCIL MEMBER OUT OVER THE OTHER, BUT I GUESS I’M BACK TO WHERE I STARTED I UNDERSTAND VERY DEEPLY WHAT FD IS LOOKING FOR IN TERMS OF STOPS AND TYPE THEY WANT AROUND THEM I UNDERSTAND THEY WANT AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WOULD LIKE TO SEE AFFORDABLE HOUSING BUT THEY HAVEN’T SAID WHAT THE PERCENTAGE NEEDS TO BE BUT IT’S VERY CLEAR TO THEM WITH THE RIDERSHIP AND TO GET RIDERSHIP YOU UH NEED DENSITY FOR ME THIS PROJECT PROVIDES DENSITY I’M WILLING TO TAKE THE BET I DON’T THINK WE’RE GOING TO COME UP WITH THE TOOL PERSONALLY WITHOUT PUTTING PUBLIC DOLLARS INTO IT THAT’S GOING TO ALLOW THE TYPE OF DENSITY WE THINK WE NEED AROUND THESE TRANSIT STOPS I’VE BEEN SITTING HERE A LONG TIME, BEEN WAITING FOR THE TOOL, WONDERING HOW LONG IT’S GOING TO TAKE TO COME I DON’T THINK WE’RE GOING TO GET A TOOL UNLESS WE PUT PUBLIC DOLLAR INTO IT AND MAKE THAT’S WHAT WE’RE GOING TO HEAR FROM OUR CONSULTANT MY SENSE IS THAT I HAVEN’T ASKED STAFF TO LOOK AT THIS TEXT AMENDMENT THAT — HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THE TEXT AMENDMENT THAT TUS PASSED TO US… STEVE? >> STAFF HAS REVIEWED THE TEXT IT HAS BEEN PROFFERED BY THE APPLICANT AND RI VIEWED IT FOR ENFORCEABILITY WE FEEL IT’S APPROPRIATE WILLING TO ACCEPT IT >> THIS IS A SMALL PART OF A LARGER TRACT, BUT I THINK IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO HAVE DENSITY ASSURED THAT SITE I THINK IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A LEVEL OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN IT AND AGAIN I REMIND US THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A GOAL I UNDERSTAND YOU DON’T GOT TO HAVE 15% BUT THAT’S A GOAL I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT HIGHER, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT 15% BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME GIVEN WHERE WE ARE, STEVE MADE THE POINT THAT I THINK THE DEVELOPERS HAVE FOLLOWED THE OUTLINE THAT WE’VE OUTLINED FOR THEM IN THE WHOLE PROCESS THIS H IS NOT AN OVERNIGHT TYPE DEAL THEY’RE COMING TO US WITH I’M COMFORTABLE WITH WHAT THEY’RE PROVIDE PROPOSING I WOULD SUPPORT IT I WOULD ALSO SUPPORT A DELAY IF YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING TO GET ANYMORE BY HAVING A DELAY, BUT BEYOND THAT, I’M SUPPORTIVE WITH WHAT’S BEING PRESENTED FOR THIS PROPOSAL THAT PARTICULAR SITE GOING TO PASS IT ON TO ANYONE ELSE RECOGNIZE COUNCIL MEMBER MOFFITT, COUNCIL MEMBER SCHEWEL, AND COUNCIL MEMBER DAVIS >> ONE OF THE THINGS I WANTED TO LIFT UP THE MEMBERS OF THE COALITION OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND TRANSIT YOUR WORK IS REALLY ESSENTIAL TO THE EFFORTS THAT ALL A OF US ARE ENGAGED IN I STAND WITH THE MAYOR WHEN HE SAID NO ONE CAN TAKE HE WON’T TAKE A BACKSEAT TO ANYBODY ON SUPPORT FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING, BUT I DON’T DOUBT THAT THE FACT THAT WE’VE GOTTEN TO THE PROFFER THAT WE HAVE IS AT LEAST IN PART BOTH TO THE WEARINESS OF THE APPLICANT TO WORK WITH US BUT IT’S ALSO IN PART BECAUSE OF THE HARD WORK THAT THE MEMBERS OF THE COALITION ARE DOING SO I WANT TO PREESH Y’ALL FOR THAT WORK — PREEAPPRECIATE Y’A FOR THAT WORK >> SCHEWEL >> MR.

THE PUBLIC I AM HERE AS PRIVATE CITIZEN BUT FIRST I WANT TO SAY I SUPPORT EVERYTHING THAT ALL THE PREVIOUS SPEAKERS SAID, ESPECIALLY THOSE FROM THE FADE COALITION AS WELL AS THE OTHER SPEAKERS I THINK THAT IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO BEAR IN MIND THAT IF BODY CAMERAS ARE DOING GOOD WHATSOEVER SIT NOT TO HELP PRICE SURVEY COMMUNITIES IT IS TO HELP COMMUNITIES SURVEY POLICE IF BODY CAMS ARE RAS ARE GOING ANY GOOD AT ALL IT IS NOT TO GIVE THE POLICE ADDITIONAL TOOLS TO SURVEY COMMUNITIES, BUT TO GIVE COMMUNITIES ADDITIONAL TOOLS TO SURVEY POLICE AND SO FRANKLY IF THIS FUNDING GOES THROUGH WITHOUT A POLICY TO MAKE, UM, THE FOOTAGE THAT THESE CAMERAS WOULD COLLECT AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC, THERE REALLY ISN’T MUCH POINT IN MY OWN VIEW [APPLAUSE] UM, AND UM, OTHER SPEAKERS HAVE ALREADY MENTIONED THE CASE OF LA WAN MCDONALD IN CHICAGO AND THE TRAGIC AND OVERTLY RACIST ACT OF VIOLENCE THAT TOOK PLACE THERE AND MANY, MANY, MANY OTHERS ACROSS THIS COUNTRY AS EXAMPLES OF WHY, QUITE FRANKLY, WE CAN’T TRUST POLICE DEPARTMENTS TO DECIDE WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO RELEASE FOOTAGE AND WHEN THEY’RE NOT IT’S THE COMMUNITY’S RESPONSIBILITY AND THE COMMUNITY’S ABILITY AS WELL, UM, AND THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE TRUSTED NOT THE POLICE WE DO NOT WANT THE DURHAM POLICE DEPARTMENT TO START BEHAVING LIKE THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT FRANKLY, WE DON’T WANT THE DURHAM POLICE DEPARTMENT TO START BEHAVING THE DURHAM SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT THAT’S ALREADY MURDERED THREE PEOPLE IN THE LAST YEAR BY MEANS OF MEDICAL NEGLECT WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN POLICE POWER IS ABLE TO OP PRATE INVISIBLY AND UNACCOUNTABLY AND WE KNOW IT ALWAYS ENDS IN HORRIFIC ACTS OF VIOLENCE I HATE TO PUT THINGS THAT DRAMATICALLY BUT THIS IS A DRAMATIC SITUATION SO I CLOSE BY SAYING THAT I URGE TO YOU VOTE AGAINST THIS MOTION UNLESS AND UNTIL THERE IS A POLICY THAT CAN ACTUALLY UH GET THE ONLY POSSIBLE USE OUT OF BODY CAMERAS AND THAT IS TO HELP US WATCH THIS POLICE, NOT TO HELP THEM WATCH US [APPLAUSE] THANK YOU >> GOOD EVENING, MR.

USE OF FORCE BY POLICE OFFICERS AND I THINK THAT’S ULTIMATELY THE GOAL WE ALL HAVE FROM THIS POLICY, BUT UNTIL WE CAN COME TOGETHER AS A CITY COUNCIL AND WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THE CITY MANAGER TO FIND A BETTER SOLUTION, I THINK WE’LL END UP DELAYING THE CONSIDERATION OF THIS CONTRACT THANK EVERYONE FOR BEING HERE SO LATE >> THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER SCHEWEL >> THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR APPRECIATE EVERYBODY BEING HERE AND FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND FOR TAKING SO SERIOUSLY THE VERY SERIOUS MATTER ALSO WANT TO THANK UH YOU, CHIEF I THINK THE PROCESS THAT WE’VE GONE TO, TO GET THE DRAFT TO GENERAL ORDER AND TO WORK THROUGH THE EXPERIMENTS THAT YOU ALL DID WITH THE VARIOUS CAMERAS AND THE EXTENT OF THE PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT YOU’VE HAD IS REALLY BEEN EXEMPLARY AND I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR THAT, AND OTHERS IN THE DEPARTMENT AS WELL BUT YOU’VE BEEN THE LEADER OF IT AND I’M GRATEFUL UM, I WROTE MY COLLEAGUES EARLIER TODAY ASKING THAT WE DELAY THIS UNTIL OUR NEXT MEETING SO WE E CAN TALK ABOUT IT AGAIN AND I’M GONNA JUST GO OVER WHY I THINK WHAT I STILL THINK ARE PROBLEMS WITH THE GENERAL ORDER IT IS, WE ARE APPROVING A CONTRACT HERE TONIGHT OR NEXT TIME WE MEET, NOT — WE COUNCIL MEMBERS DON’T WRITE THE GENERAL ORDERS, OUR ADMINISTRATION DOES THAT BUT I E DO THINK THAT THERE ARE SOME WORK THAT THE GENERAL ORDER NEEDS AND BEFORE WE VOTE ON THE CONTRACT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE US DO SOME OF THAT WORK UM, I WANT TO SAY ALSO THAT WHATEVER WE DO WITH THE CAMERAS DOESN’T IN ANY WAY ABSOLVE US AS A WHOLE FROM DOING THE OTHER WORK WE NEED TO DO IN TERMS OF DEALING WITH THE SITUATION THAT WE HAVE IN DURHAM THAT CREATES CRIME DOESN’T ABSOLVE US TO DO THE WORK WE NEED TO GIVE EVERYBODY A SAFE AND DECENT HOUSE TO LIVE IN, DOESN’T ABSOLVE US FROM THE WORK WE NEED TO DO TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY’S GOT DECENT HEALTH CARE AND THAT NOBODY GOES TO BED HUNGRY AND THAT ALL CHILDREN HAVE GOOD EDUCATION WE HAVE A ROLE, WE ALL DO AND HAVING THIS CAMERA IS A TECHNICAL SOLUTION TO A SMALL PART OF THIS ISSUE BUT THAT’S ALL IT IS AND IT WON’T GET AT THE UNDERLYING CAUSES IT WON’T ALSO — THERE ARE SOME OTHER THINGS IT WON’T DO ADDS WELL IT’S NOT GOING TO SOLVE DURHAM’S NEED FOR A GENUINE COMMUNITY POLICING, IT WON’T ADDRESS THE NEED FOR EXPANDING OUR UNIQUE AND CONSTRUCTIVENESS TO MEET OUR DIVERSION PROGRAM IT WON’T ADDRESS NEED TO MAKE LOW-LEVEL DRUG OFFENSES THE LOWEST LEVEL FOR POLICE ENFORCEMENT AND IT WON’T ADDRESS NEED TO BRING AN END TO — WE HAVE TO KNOW THIS WON’T AFFECT THAT AND WE HAVE TO HELP MAKE CHANGES BUT WHAT CAMERAS CAN DO, I BELIEVE, ARE HELP US MEET THREE IMPORTANT GOALS FIRST IS REDUCING INCIDENCE OF POLICE USE OF FORCE SECOND IS REDUCE COMPLAINTS AGAINST OUR POLICE OFFICERS AND THIRD AS A RESULT OF THESE INCREASED POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY AND INCREASE TRUST IN OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT AND I’M PRETTY SURE BY NOW THAT I’VE READ PRETTY MUCH ALL THE STUDIES ON THIS AND THERE’S WHAT I WILL TELL YOU IS FROM MY RESEARCH IS THERE’S REALLY ONE GOOD STUDY AND THE STUDY THAT I VI READ THAT I E THINK IS A GOOD STUDY, A REALLY GOOD STUDY IS FROM RAALTO, KRASHG KRASHGS A CITY OF A THOUSAND PEOPLE STUDY DONE BY UNIVERSITY OF CAME BRIDGE IN THE UK FOR PERIOD OF 12 MONTHS ENCOMPASSED ABOUT A THOUSAND POLICE SHIFTS EACH SHIFT RECEIVED A RANDOM ASSIGNMENT EITHER AS TREATMENT SHIFT OR OFFICERS WORE CAMERAS OR AS A CONTROLLED SHIFT WHERE OFFICERS DIDN’T WEAR CAMERAS RESULTS WERE SIGNIFICANT OFFERS WITHOUT CAMERAS WERE ROUGHLY TWICE AS LIKELY TO BE INVOLVED IN USE OF — — — COMPLAINTS FILES AGAINST OFFICERS DROPPED FROM .7 COMPLAINTS TO ZERO TO .07 CONTACTS PER THOUSAND COMPLAINTS THOSE NUMBERS ARE HARD TO UNDERSTAND BUT IT’S A TENFOLD DROP THESE ARE DRAMATIC POSITIVE RESULTS AND I DON’T THINK WE CAN IGNORE THEM THE STUDY DIDN’T SPEAK TO A LOT OF ISSUES WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT

WHEN WE’RE CONSIDERING THIS POLICY DIDN’T THINK ABOUT THE LENGTH OF TIME THE VIDEO WOULD BE STORED, WHEN ACTIVATED, WHEN ACCESSED BUT I THINK — THE SAME GROUP IS REPLICATING THIS STUDY IN 30 CITIES AROUND THE WORLD I’VE SEEN THE RESULTS OF ONE OF THOSE FROM DENVER JUST RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER, SIX MONT STUDY OF 23 THOURN POLICE INTERACTIONS IN DENVER FOUND THAT USE OF FORCE INCIDENTS ABOUT CAMERAS COMING IN THOSE TWO THINGS ARREST RATES AND USE OF FORCE FELL ACROSS THE CITY EVEN OUTSIDE THE AREAS WHERE THE CAMERAS WERE USED IN ADDITION POLICE OFFICER CORE THE CAMERAS 18% LESS LIKELY TO MAKE AN ARREST AND 8% LESS LIKELY TO USE FORCE THAN OFFICER WHO IS DID NOT WEAR CAMERAS THESE ARE SIGNIFICANT AND GIVEN THE RESULTS OF THESE STUDY AND IT’S REPLICATIONS I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT BODY WORN CAM FLAS DURHAM AND I THINK WE NEED TO DO IT WITHIN THE CONFINES OF GENERAL ORDER THAT DOES ITS BEST TO STRIKE DIFFICULT BALANCE BETWEEN PRIVACY, TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY I THINK THE CURRENT JEB ORDER GOES A LONG WAY TOWARDS STRIKING THE APPROPRIATE BALANCE BUT I BELIEVE IMPROVEMENTS COULD BE MADE TO IT FOR ALL THE ACCESSIBILITY TO THE PUBLIC I’LL ADDRESS LAST BUT FEW OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUES THE DRAFT GENERAL ORDER SAYS WHENEVER POSSIBLE OFFICERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO INFORM INDIVIDUALS THEY’RE BEING RECORDED HOWEVER THIS DISCUSSION REMAINS WITH INDIVIDUAL OFFICERS I THINK THAT IT’S IMPORTANT TO CHANGE THIS BECAUSE ONE OF THE OTHER THAN THE USE OF THE CAMERA THE OTHER IMPORTANT FACTOR THE RESEARCHERS FOUND WAS THAT THEY WERE ADAMANT THAT A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IMPROVEMENT WAS THE FACT THAT POLICE ANNOUNCED AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH ENCOUNTER THAT THE ENCOUNTER WAS BEING RECORDED CAME BRIDGE UNIVERSITY SAYS THE RESEARCHERS SAY THE KNOWLEDGE OF RECORDING CREATES SELF-AWARENESS IN ALL PARTICIPANTS DURING INTERACTIONS CRITICAL COMPONENT THAT TURNS BODY WORN VIDEO — LEAD RESEARCHER WRITES AN OFFICER IS ABLIJED TO ISSUE WARNING FROM THE START THAT ENCOUNTERER’S BEING FILM AND GIVING A MESSAGE THAT WE’RE ALL EXPECTED TO FOLLOW RULES GIVING THESE FINDINGS IT’S IMPERATIVE GENERAL ORDER REQUIRE RATHER THAN ENCOURAGE OFFICERS TO TELL RESIDENCE AT THE BEGINNING OF ENCOUNTERER THAT IT’S BEEN FILMED OF COURSE THERE WOULD BE EXCEPTIONS WITHIN THE SECTION OF THE GENERAL ORDER HAVING TO DO WITH TIMES IN USE OF BODY WORN CAMERAS I’M TROUBLED BY THE STATEMENT WHICH ARE RESTRICTED FROM RECORDING BY THIS POLICY CAN BE RETAINED AS PART OF CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIVE FILE IF INFORMATION IS OBTAINED AND YOU ADDRESS THIS EARLIER, IF INFORMATION OBTAINED IN CONTINUE VENGS TO THE POLICY’S PRIVACY PROTECTIONS IT SEEMS CLEAR THIS INFORMATION SHOULD NOT BE USED AS PART OF CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION IN SITUATIONS WHERE SOMEONE HAS HEIGHTENED EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY AND WHEN OUR GENERAL ORDER RECOGNIZES THAT AND PROHIBITS RECORDING, I DON’T BELIEVE WE SHOULD USE THAT VIDEO FOR PURPOSES OF CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION I ALSO KNOW THAT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT INTEREST AS I N AM IN REDUCING LENT OF TIME VIDEO STORED STORAGE IS EXPENSIVE AND WE ALL WANT THE LEAST AMOUNT OF UNFLAGGED VIDEO STORED AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF OUR COMMON PRIVACY GOALS I HOPE THAT I’M GOING TO GO BACK AGAIN TO REQUEST APPLICANT — HAVEN’T ASKED YOU PREVIOUSLY IF WE ARE REDUCE STORAGE PERIOD FOR THE DEFAULT IN INSFRAKSS FROM 180 TO 90 DAYS WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT RESPONDED THAT THE DAs OFFICE WANTED THIS TO BE 180 DAYS BUT I NOTICED LOOKED AT THE CHARLOTTE POLICE DEPARTMENT 45 DAY TENSION PERIOD AS DEFAULT INCLUDING TRAFFIC STOPS RESULTING IN INFRACTIONS AND THE GREENS BOW ROE HAS # 90 DAY FOR ANY — — ANOTHER RECOMMENDATION IS 60 DAYS OTHER CHANGE IS IN THE LISTING

UNDER A POLICY WHERE EVERY USE OF FORCE IS PRESUMED TO BE MADE PUBLIC TO EVERYONE INTERESTED AND TO THE PRESS, LET ME JUST SAY I VERY MUCH DOUBT AS THE SLIGHTLY DRUNK PERSON PERPETRATING THE FIGHT THAT I WOULD WANT THAT VIDEO TO BE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC WITHOUT ANY PROTECTION AND I BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE A COMMON OUTCOME OF THE PROPOSAL SUCH AS THE ONE THAT MAKES ALL USE OF FORCE VIDEO PUBLIC ABSENT COMPELLING PUBLIC CONTRAST TO THE CONTRARY WE’D BE MAKING BAD — — IT MAKES ME THINK THE PUBLICATION IS A SLAMMER SOME OF YOU SAY MS MONEY-MAKING PUBLICATION THIS IS SHAMING THOSE PEOPLE ACCUSED OF CRIMES I DON’T WANT US TO CONTRIBUTE IN A SIGNIFICANT WAY TO THAT SAME KIND OF SHAMING OF DURHAMITES IT WOULDN’T BE THE OFFICER THAT WOULD BE EMBARRASSED IT WOULD BE THE COMMUNITY MEMBER WHO DIDN’T WANT TO BE RELEASED TO THE MEDIA STILL, I THINK DUO NEED TO HAVE MORE ACCOUNTABILITY IN THE POLICY SO WHAT I SUGGEST, VI TWO AND I’M VERY OPEN TO OTHERS FIFRS FIRST, HAVING A THREE PERSON INDEPENDENT PANEL THAT WOULD REVIEW ALL A YULS OF FORCE INCIDENCE MONTHLY TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT IT SHOULD BE RELEASED TO PUBLIC P THIS PANEL COULD BE APPOINTED TO BY COUNCIL FAIR DISCUSSION SECOND OPTION WOULD BE TO STRENGTHEN THE GENERAL ORDERS DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCESS BY WHICH A VIDEO COULD BE MADE PUBLIC BY POLICE CHIEF, CITY MANAGER OR CITY COUNCIL THERE’S NO DISCUSSION OF SUCH PROCESS P WE SHOULD MAKE IT CLEAR THIS IS NOT A VAGUE INPE NATE TRABL PROCESS BUT RATHER THERE’S A SHARED OVERSIGHT THAT’S GENUINE AND THAT THE PUBLIC CAN NOTIFY CITY MANAGER OR COUNCIL THAT A VIDEO BE REVIEWED FOR POSSIBLE PUBLIC RELEASE THIS WILL TRICKER SPECIFIC TRANSPARENT PROCESS IF THIS PROCESS IS STRONG ENOUGH IT COULD PROVIDE NECESSARY ACCOUNTABILITY I DON’T PRETEND TO HAVE ALL ANSWERS ON THIS BUT WE DO NEED STRONGER ACCOUNTABILITY AND I’M OPEN TO IDEAS ABOUT IT SO AGAIN, I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE WHO’S HAD ALL THESE SUGGESTIONS I PARTICULARLY WANT TO THANK THE POLICE DEPARTMENT LEADERS, CHIEF MARSH, CHIEF SMITH AND OTHERS WHO’VE TAKEN THE THE INITIATIVE TO BEGIN THIS PROCESS AND TO CARRY IT THROUGH BECAUSE I THINK IF WE DO IT RIGHT, BODY CAMERAS CAN BE VERY HELPFUL IN TERMS OF REDUCING USE OF FORCE INCIDENCE AND NEGATIVE POLICE ENCOUNTERS WITH THE COMMUNITY I WANTED TO THANK YOU AND I THINK THAT THERE ARE MANY ISSUES THAT STILL NEED TO BE FIGURED OUT AND I HOPE THAT WE CAN PUT THIS OFF, HAVE ANOTHER WORK SESSION AROUND IT HAVE ADMINISTRATION COME BACK WITH MODIFICATIONS TO THE JEP ORDER THANK YOU, MR.

THE PURCHASE NOT LATER I WANT TO SAY THERE ARE VERY GOOD IDEAS OUT THERE ABOUT UH HOW TO WRITE POLICIES THEY’VE PUT TOGETHER DETAILED GUIDANCE AND MADE IT PUBLICLY AVAILABLE AND RECOMMEND THAT CITIES WORK WITH THESE FOLKS IN THE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND CIVIL RIGHTS COMMUNE TOY CRAFT POLICIES THAT PROTECT CITIZENS AND WORK BOTH TO REDUCE POLICE USE OF FORCE AS WE HOPE CAMERAS WILL IN THE LONG TERM BUT TO PROTECT THE ACCOUNTABILITY THAT WE NEED AND I THINK THAT A DELAY IN THIS DECISION WILL GIVE US TIME TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN THANKS >> MR.
