09:06:11 JONES SR., WHO TOLD HIM YOU HAVE TO BE TWICE AS GOOD TO

09:06:13 BE AVERAGE AS A BLACK OFFICER.

09:06:18 OPTION, SAYS PASTOR NATHAN.

09:06:21 ALTHOUGH HE DID NOT EXPERIENCE DISCRIMINATION DIRECTLY,

09:13:22 I DON'T THINK WE ARE AT RISK AT ALL, BUT AS WE ARE

09:13:26 MAKING LAND USE CHOICES AND PLANNING IN AND AROUND

09:13:30 MACDILL, ONE OF THE ISSUES IN PAST WAS ENCROACHMENT.

09:13:31 I THINK THAT MIGHT HAVE CHANGED.

09:14:45 COUNCILMAN CARLSON'S CONFUSION IS MY BOSS IN THE TAMPA

09:14:51 BAY DEFENSE ALLIANCE IS MISS HONEYCUTT AND SENDS REGRETS.

09:14:59 I WILL BE SOLO, BUT MR. STEPHEN BENSON IS WITH ME FROM

09:15:02 THE CITY PLANNING OFFICE, WORKING FOR THE MAYOR.

09:15:05 AND I WILL REFERENCE STEPHEN HERE IN JUST A FEW

09:15:06 MINUTES.

09:15:10 FIRST SLIDE, PLEASE.

09:15:12 SECOND SLIDE, PLEASE.

09:15:16 QUICKLY, WE ARE THE TAMPA BAY DEFENSE ALLIANCE GROUP

09:15:20 FORMED IN 2012 TO GET AFTER THE ISSUES THAT COUNCILMAN

09:15:20 CARLSON TALKED ABOUT.

09:15:23 BASE REALIGNMENT AND CLOSURE IS A CONTINUING ISSUE IN

09:15:26 THE AREA, AS WELL AS THE CONTINUING SUPPORT OF

09:15:30 SERVICEMEMBERS, THEIR FAMILIES IN THE AREA.

09:15:31 WE ARE FORMED IN 2012.

09:15:33 WE HAVE INTEREST IN ALL EIGHT COUNTIES.

09:15:37 WE RUN FROM TRYING TO HELP MAINTAIN THE RANGES THAT ARE

09:15:39 IN THE GULF TO WORKING OVER IN POLK COUNTY WITH THE

09:15:43 AVON PARK RANGE NORTH IN BROOKSVILLE AND DOWN AS FAR AS

09:15:44 SARASOTA.

09:15:45 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

09:15:48 THE KEY TODAY AND WE WERE ASKED TO TALK ABOUT HOW THE

09:15:51 CITY MIGHT CONTINUE TO WORK IN A GOOD WAY TO MAKE SURE

09:15:55 THAT WE MAINTAIN THIS WONDERFUL ASSET THAT IS MACDILL

09:15:57 AIR FORCE BASE WHICH IS ONE OF THE LARGEST ECONOMIC

09:15:58 DRIVERS IN THE BASE.

09:16:01 SUPPORTS A LARGE ACTIVE-DUTY RESERVE AND RESERVE

09:16:03 COMPONENT.

09:16:06 PLUS, A HUGE NUMBER OF VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES THAT

09:16:07 LIVE IN THE AREA.

09:16:12 I WILL REFER YOU TO TWO BOLDED ITEMS AND GOALS, PROMOTE

09:16:14 THE MILITARY MISSIONS IN THE AREA.

09:16:20 WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, LOOK AT NUMBER 4, FOR

09:16:24 COMBATABLE DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA.

09:16:26 I WILL TALK ABOUT A QUICK CASE STUDY AND SUCCESS STORY

09:16:31 WITH THE CITY IS DOING WITH A MODEL WE SHOULD EMULATE

09:16:33 AS WE CONTINUE GOING FORWARD.

09:16:34 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

09:16:37 YOU ARE FAMILIAR IN THE AREA.

09:16:40 WITH THE BASE DOWN ON THE SOUTH, AND I WILL BLOW THE MAP

09:16:41 UP IN JUST A LITTLE BIT.

09:16:47 I BECAME -- RECENTLY, I BEGAN LOOKING AT THE CITY'S WEB

09:16:50 SITE, AND ASKED IF I WAS A DEVELOPER WHO WANTED TO

09:16:56 DEVELOP IN SOUTH TAMPA, COULD I GET THE INFORMATION TO

09:16:59 DEVELOP ALONG MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE.

09:17:02 A NATIONAL HOTEL CHAIN CONTACTED US AND ASKED FOR

09:17:06 ADVICE IF THEY WERE GOING TO BUILD A HOTEL DOWN BEHIND

09:17:08 THE MCDONALD'S JUST OUTSIDE THE MACDILL GATE.

09:17:12 WE LINKED THEM AT THAT POINT TO THE PLANNERS AND CIVIL

09:17:16 ENGINEERS AND A GREAT DIALOGUE BETWEEN THE TWO OF THE

09:17:19 CONSIDERATIONS OF THE HOTEL CHAIN MIGHT HAVE TO HAVE IF

09:17:20 THEY WANTED TO DEVELOP IN THE AREA.

09:17:23 THEY CHOSE NOT TO, NOT BECAUSE THE BASE WAS THERE BUT

09:17:25 FOR OTHER ECONOMIC REASONS.

09:17:28 BUT THEY MADE A WISE CHOICE, BECAUSE THEY HAD MUCH

09:17:29 BETTER INFORMATION.

09:17:33 THE CITY OF TAMPA RIGHT NOW MAINTAINS ON ITS WEB SITE

09:17:34 EXCELLENT PLANNING MATERIALS.

09:17:38 IF YOU WERE GOING TO LIVE NEAR YBOR, WORK ON THE RIVER

09:17:41 OR BE A HISTORICAL DISTRICT.

09:17:45 IF YOU ARE YOU -- NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

09:17:48 IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA DOWN SOUTH OF GANDY IN THE LIGHT

09:17:51 GREEN, YOU CAN SEE IN THE MID RIGHT AND LOWER LEFT,

09:17:54 THAT THOSE AREAS DOWN AROUND BAYSHORE WHICH IS THE

09:17:56 APPROACH ZONES TO THE BASE.

09:17:59 AND THEN THE PINK CLEAR ZONES THAT ARE RIGHT NEAR THE

09:17:59 BASE.

09:18:02 NOT A LOT OF INFORMATION WHEN YOU LOOK AT CITY PLANNING

09:18:04 AND HOW TO DO THAT.

09:18:07 WE APPROACHED BOTH THE BASE AND THE CITY TO ASK IF

09:18:09 THERE WAS AN EASIER WAY TO DO THIS.

09:18:11 WE USED AS OUR EXAMPLE SIMILAR PLANNING MATERIALS

09:18:16 AVAILABLE AT AIR FORCE BASE IN SPOKANE, WASHINGTON.

09:18:19 PLANNING GUIDES THAT MAKE IT EASY FOR SOMEONE WHO WANTS

09:18:24 TO DEVELOP IN THE AREA TO GET INFORMATION THAT THEY CAN

09:18:26 HAVE TO MAKE A WISE CHOICE.

09:18:30 LET ME BE CLEAR, WE ARE NOT ADVOCATING ANY REZONING OF

09:18:32 PROPERTY OR CHANGES IN PROPERTY.

09:18:34 BUT RATHER IF YOU ARE A DEVELOPER AND YOU WERE

09:18:36 CONSIDERING ANYTHING IN THAT AREA, YOU CAN GET THE

09:18:39 INFORMATION YOU NEEDED VERY EASILY, AND WE COULD POINT

09:18:42 TO YOU EXACTLY WHO YOU NEEDED TO TALK TO MAKE A WISE

09:18:43 CHOICE.

09:18:46 IT WAS AT THAT POINT THAT AFTER TALKING TO THE MISSION

09:18:50 SUPPORT GROUP AT THE BASE AND COLONEL SHINSKI AND HIS

09:18:51 GROUP.

09:18:53 WE APPROACHED STEPHEN BENSON AND HIS GROUP, AND THEY

09:18:56 HAVE BEEN ENTHUSIASTICALLY WORKING WITH US THE LAST SIX

09:18:59 WEEKS TO GET THAT INFORMATION TO COORDINATE WITH THE

09:19:01 BASE AND MAKE THAT INFORMATION AVAILABLE.

09:19:03 SIMPLY PUT, WHAT WE WILL DO IS CODE THE PROPERTIES IN

09:19:07 THE AREA HERE SO THERE IS A FLAG ON IT THAT SAYS, YOU

09:19:09 MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER THIS.

09:19:10 YOU ARE IN AN APPROACH ZONE.

09:19:13 AND HERE IS WHERE YOU GET THE INFORMATION FOR THAT AS

09:19:16 YOU GO FORWARD.

09:19:19 AS WE RECOMMEND WITH THE TAMPA BAY DEFENSE ALLIANCE IS

09:19:22 EFFORTS LIKE THIS -- THIS IS WHAT THE DEFENSE ALLIANCE

09:19:25 TRIES TO DO TO BRING INTERESTED PARTIES TOGETHER TO

09:19:27 TALK EARLY ABOUT ISSUES LIKE THIS AND WORK OUT.

09:19:30 BECAUSE WE SUPPORT THE PRIORITIES OF THE BASE AND

09:19:33 INTERESTING ENOUGH, THE BASE IS NOT -- THE BASE

09:19:36 LEADERSHIP IS NOT AGAINST DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH TAMPA.

09:19:38 IN FACT, THIS IS QUITE IN FAVOR, BUT BECAUSE A NUMBER OF

09:19:41 THEIR YOUNG SERVICEMEMBERS HAVE TO LIVE IN EAST COUNTY

09:19:43 AND COMMUTE A LONG WAYS TO GET TO THE BASE.

09:19:47 SO IF THERE IS BETTER, MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING OR

09:19:49 APARTMENT DEVELOPMENTS THAT ARE IN THE AREA THAT ARE

09:19:52 MORE AFFORDABLE TO THEIR SERVICEMEMBERS, THEY ARE ALL

09:19:56 IN FAVOR OF THAT AS LONG AS IT ALLOWS CONTINUED USE OF

09:19:58 THE MILITARY MISSION AT THE BASE.

09:20:02 AT THIS POINT, I'LL ASK STEPHEN -- STEVEN HIGHLIGHTED TO ME

09:20:04 RECENTLY PLANNING EFFORTS GOING ON.

09:20:06 THE FLORIDA STATE DEFENSE TASK FORCE HAS FUNDED

09:20:11 RECENTLY TO THE TUNE OF HALF MILLION DOLLARS A RELOOK

09:20:18 AT WHAT WAS THE JLUSE, THE JOINT LAND USE STUDY, WITH

09:20:20 A COMPATIBLE USE ADDENDUM WITH THE METROPOLITAN

09:20:23 PLANNING GROUPS GOING ON WITH THE TUNE OF HALF MILLION

09:20:24 DOLLARS TO LOOK AT THAT AGAIN.

09:20:27 TO CONTINUE THE DEVELOPMENT AND THE WORK FOR THE

09:20:30 AIRPORTS IN THE AREA, INCLUDING TAMPA INTERNATIONAL,

09:20:33 PETER O. KNIGHT AND MACDILL.

09:20:37 STEPHEN AND HIS GROUP HAVE BEEN DOING ADDITIONAL WORK

09:20:37 WITH US.

09:20:41 INTERESTING WORK ON THE SHORELINE DOWN NEAR MACDILL.

09:20:42 STEPHEN.

09:20:44 >>STEPHEN BENSON: THANK YOU, LARRY.

09:20:48 I WANT TO ADD THAT AS COUNCIL WAS AWARE, WE KICKED OFF

09:20:52 THE COASTAL PLANNING CONTRACT THAT INCLUDED COMMUNITY

09:20:55 PLANS FOR PALMETTO BEACH AND ALL OF THE SOUTH OF GANDY

09:20:56 NEIGHBORHOOD.

09:20:59 LOOKING AT WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING IN TERMS OF PLANNING

09:21:01 AND GETTING INFORMATION OUT AND WORKING WITH THE

09:21:04 COMMUNITY WITH REGARDS TO WHAT HAPPENS AROUND THE BASE

09:21:07 IS SOMETHING WE ARE GOING TO BE PUTTING FORWARD AS AN

09:21:10 INTEGRAL PART OF THE PROJECT ESPECIALLY WITH THE

09:21:13 EXTENSIVE PUBLIC OUTREACH THAT WILL BE TAKING PLACE.

09:21:16 WE WANT TO THANK COUNCILMAN CARLSON FOR BRINGING THIS

09:21:18 FORWARD TO CONNECT THOSE DOTS AND MOVE THAT FORWARD AS

09:21:20 PART OF THE PLANNING PROCESS.

09:21:23 >> WITH THAT, WE ARE READY FOR ANY QUESTIONS FROM

09:21:24 COUNCIL.

09:21:26 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ANY QUESTIONS?

09:21:27 COUNCILMAN CARLSON?

09:21:32 ANYBODY?

09:21:35 >>LUIS VIERA: I WASN'T GOING TO SAY ANYTHING, AND IT IS

09:21:40 YOUR THING BUT -- I WANT TO THANK COUNCILMAN CARLSON

09:21:43 FOR BRINGING THIS FORWARD AND TO SAY WE ARE LUCKY TO

09:21:47 HAVE MACDILL HERE IS QUITE THE UNDERSTATEMENT, RIGHT.

09:21:50 IT IS SOMETHING THAT REALLY DEFINES OUR AREA SO MUCH.

09:21:54 WE HAVE OVER 100,000 VETERANS IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY.

09:21:58 AND YOU KNOW WE ARE MORE THAN ANYTHING A VERY PATRIOTIC

09:21:59 COMMUNITY.

09:22:01 AND THAT IS ONE OF THE GREAT FOUNDATIONS FOR US AS A

09:22:02 COMMUNITY.

09:22:06 SO THANK YOU, COUNCILMAN CARLSON, FOR BRINGING THIS

09:22:07 FORWARD.

09:22:08 IT IS SO IMPORTANT.

09:22:12 I REMEMBER THE MEDAL OF HONOR CONVENTION, WHEN YOU CAME

09:22:15 HERE -- YES, SIR -- WITH TRAVIS AND OTHER FOLKS.

09:22:17 AND THINGS LIKE THAT THAT -- THAT KIND OF FLOW FROM

09:22:18 THAT PRESENCE.

09:22:22 AND THAT WE CAN JUST CELEBRATE OUR PATRIOTISM.

09:22:25 CELEBRATE THE VALOR AND SERVICE OF OUR VETERANS.

09:22:29 AND JUST -- AGAIN, TO SAY WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE MACDILL

09:22:31 IS A HECK OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT.

09:22:31 THANK YOU.

09:22:34 >> THANK YOU, COUNCIL.

09:22:38 COUNCILMAN, NO FINER COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES FOR

09:22:39 SUPPORTING THE MILITARY THAN.

09:22:45 THAT IS IN OUR CITY.

09:22:48 AND WHETHER IT IS THE LAND, THE SPACE, THE NOISE AND WE

09:22:48 DO THAT.

09:22:51 AND THE BEST WAY WE BELIEVE TO DO THAT WHILE THE

09:23:28 SUPPORT IS UNPARALLELED FOR THE MILITARY.

09:23:30 >>BILL CARLSON: MIGHT TREAT IT DIFFERENTLY.

09:23:33 >> I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT MULTIPLE BASES.

09:23:36 THERE ARE WITH 39 TENANTS ON THE BASE THAT DIVERSITY

09:23:43 MAKES MACDILL VERY HARD -- MAKES IT VERY HARD TO GET

09:23:43 RID OF.

09:23:46 BUT SIMPLY, THE MAIN CONCERN WE HAVE FOR THE BASE IN

09:23:50 THE AREA HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT MACDILL IS NUMBER

09:23:54 8 IN THE AIR FORCE'S RACE OF MOST THREATENED BASES

09:23:56 BECAUSE OF RISING WATER PERSON.

09:23:59 THE CITY HAS BEEN DOING A GOOD NUMBER OF WORK.

09:24:02 WE WORKED WITH THEM TO GET GRANTS FOR THE AREA TO TRY

09:24:04 TO MITIGATE THAT.

09:24:07 THAT AS THE REST OF THE -- ENTIRE CITY DEALS WITH THAT

09:24:09 ISSUE IS ONE OF THE CRITICAL ISSUES THAT WOULD THREATEN

09:24:13 THE MISSION THAT IS IN THE AREA, SIR.

09:24:15 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN CITRO, COUNCILMAN

09:24:16 GUDES.

09:24:18 >>JOSEPH CITRO: YES, I AM WITH TAMPA BAY REGIONAL

09:24:19 PLANNING.

09:24:22 AND WE HAVE A MAJOR PLAN RIGHT NOW ON SEA LEVEL RISE

09:24:23 AND PROTECTING THE COAST.

09:24:27 BECAUSE, LET'S FACE IT, THE AIRPLANES AND THE PERSONNEL

09:24:30 CAN EVACUATE DURING THE HURRICANE, BUT IF THE BASE

09:24:33 ISN'T THERE TO RETURN TO, THEN WE FAILED IN THAT

09:24:33 MISSION.

09:24:35 THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING THAT.

09:24:37 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN GUDES.

09:24:39 >>ORLANDO GUDES: KIND OF CURIOUS.

09:24:44 I DON'T -- THE TERM "MULTIPLE BASES"I THOUGHT MACDILL

09:24:44 AIR FORCE BASE.

09:24:47 WHAT ARE YOU REFERRING TO, MR. CARLSON, WHEN YOU SAY

09:24:50 MULTIPLE BASES.

09:24:52 >> COUNCILMAN, I THINK THERE HAS BEEN -- AS THE BASES

09:24:55 -- WHEN THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO

09:24:57 WENT TO JOINT BASING.

09:25:01 THERE WAS A MARINE CORPS, A NAVY, AN AIR FORCE BASE,

09:25:03 THEY MADE THEM ONE BASE.

09:25:06 THAT NEVER HAD TO HAPPEN ON MACDILL BECAUSE THE WAY IT

09:25:08 WAS ORGANIZED.

09:25:11 >>ORLANDO GUDES: YOU HAVE THE MARINES AND --

09:25:13 >> MANY, MANY DIFFERENT.

09:25:16 THERE ARE 39 DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS ON MACDILL WITH

09:25:16 THAT.

09:25:19 WE HAVE BEEN LUCKY FROM THIS OLD BASE COMMANDER'S

09:25:21 PERSPECTIVE TO CONTINUE THAT ONE BASE COMMANDER WHO

09:25:24 SPEAKS AS A SINGLE VOICE FOR MAINTAINING THE BASE.

09:25:29 AND THEN WORKS WITH CITY, COUNTY, STATE, FEDERAL TO TRY

09:25:31 -- TO TRY TO MAINTAIN THAT.

09:25:33 >>ORLANDO GUDES: I WANTED TO BE CLEAR WHAT IT WAS.

09:25:36 I GOT CONFUSED.

09:25:37 DIFFERENT WERE OUT THERE.

09:25:41 >> TO BE FAIR, THE DEFENSE ALLIANCE WORKS WITH COAST

09:25:44 GUARD CLEARWATER, THE AVON RANGE.

09:25:45 RESERVE BASES IN THE AREA.

09:25:48 THE ARMY DETACHMENTS IN BROOKSVILLE.

09:25:50 TO TRY TO SUPPORT THOSE BASES TOO.

09:25:53 OUR PRIMARY FOCUS IS MACDILL.

09:25:55 >>BILL CARLSON: I THINK WHERE IT HAS COME UP RECENTLY

09:25:58 AND PEOPLE TALKED TO ME ABOUT IT IN PARTICULAR BECAUSE

09:25:59 OF THE ACCESS OF THE BASE.

09:26:03 AND THE -- THE TRAFFIC JAMS AND ESPECIALLY AT CERTAIN

09:26:04 TIMES.

09:26:07 >> COUNCILMAN, YOU GOT -- YOU GOT THE THIRD OR FOURTH

09:26:12 LARGEST EMPLOYER IN THE COUNTY WITH THREE ACCESS POINTS

09:26:15 THAT COME DOWN MAJOR ROADS WITH WORK SCHEDULES THAT

09:26:17 COME IN AND OUT.

09:26:20 THAT WILL CONTINUE TO BE AN ISSUE.

09:26:22 I KNOW THE COUNCIL AND THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT ARE

09:26:25 WORKING HARD FOR THINGS LIKE THE FERRY AND OTHER -- FOR

09:26:28 ACCESS TO THAT, ALL THOSE TO THE GOOD, AGAIN, AS WE

09:26:30 MAINTAIN THE ACCESS TO THE BASE.

09:26:33 >>BILL CARLSON: SEEMS TO ME LIKE A SECURITY ISSUE -- I

09:26:36 DON'T WANT TO SAY TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW.

09:26:39 BUT IN THE ORIGINAL GOAL, THE WAY PEOPLE WERE TIPPED

09:26:42 OFF IN TOWN THAT THERE WERE A LOT OF PIZZA DELIVERIES

09:26:44 TO THE BASE JUST BEFORE.

09:26:49 BUT WHAT I OBSERVED -- I LIVED ON DALE MABRY FOR A FEW

09:26:51 YEARS AND WOULD WATCH THE TRAFFIC.

09:26:55 AND OBVIOUS TRAFFIC PATTERNS AT CERTAIN TIMES OF DAY.

09:26:59 SUDDENLY A BIG TRAFFIC JAM AND TURN ON THE NEWS AND SEE

09:27:01 SOMETHING IS HAPPENING.

09:27:05 >> MY SPOUSE WATCHES THE NEXT DOOR APP, EVERY TIME A

09:27:09 FIGHTER OR HELICOPTER, IN THE BEGINNING OF WORLD WAR III

09:27:11 OR FOUR COMING OUT.

09:27:12 YOU ARE RIGHT WITH THAT.

09:27:15 THAT IS THE NATURE OF THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A BASE IN A

09:27:18 VERY DENSE, URBAN ENVIRONMENT FOR THE ABILITY TO WATCH

09:27:22 IT.

09:27:28 >>JOSEPH CITRO: TO THAT POINT -- THANK YOU, COUNCILMAN

09:27:29 CARLSON.

09:27:33 TO THAT POINT, WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO CONVINCE THE SELMON

09:27:38 EXPRESSWAY AND D.O.T. TO HAVE REDUCED FAIR FOR SUNPASS

09:27:41 THAT WILL TAKE THEM TO THE MACDILL -- EXCUSE ME, TO THE

09:27:44 DALE MABRY GATE, BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF TRAFFIC THAT I

09:27:48 SEE GOING TO AND FROM MACDILL ARE ON BAYSHORE.

09:27:50 >> COUNCILMAN, THAT HAS BEEN RAISED AT VARIOUS TIME.

09:27:54 I DON'T KNOW THE STATUS OF THAT.

09:27:58 DURING MY TENURE 10, 15 YEARS, WE BROUGHT THAT UP BUT

09:28:02 COULD NOT RESOLVE THAT WITH THE EXPRESSWAY COMMISSION.

09:28:08 >>BILL CARLSON: I MET WITH THE NEWEST LEGISLATIVE

09:28:11 CHAIR.

09:28:12 THEY WOULD WORK AROUND IT.

09:28:16 A CURRENT REDUCED -- A CURRENT REDUCED PROGRAM FROM

09:28:19 BRANDON TO MACDILL.

09:28:21 AND SO THERE IS SOME KIND OF PROGRAM, BUT ALSO I NOTE

09:28:26 THAT THE EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY IN THE PAST HAS LOOKED AT

09:28:28 BUILDING AN EXTENSION DOWN DALE MABRY.

09:28:31 AND THAT WOULD BE CONTROVERSIAL WITH THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

09:28:33 SO I AM NOT PUSHING FOR IT.

09:28:35 BUT THEY LOOKED AT TAKING IT DOWN THERE.

09:28:39 THE OTHER THING, THOUGH, THE EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY YEARS

09:28:43 AGO OFFERED D.O.T. TO PAY TO EXPAND THE GATES IN ORDER

09:28:45 TO MOVE FASTER.

09:28:47 I THINK THAT WAS TURNED DOWN.

09:28:51 ANYWAY, I AM ENCOURAGED YOU ALL TO TALK TO THEM.

09:28:55 WE NEED TO BRING THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR IN HERE.

09:28:57 I SHOULD MAKE A MOTION ON THAT LATER.

09:28:59 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

09:29:01 ANYBODY ELSE?

09:29:02 ALL RIGHT.

09:29:03 THANK YOU.

09:29:06 ITEM NUMBER 3 CANNOT BE DISCUSSED.

09:29:11 SUSAN JOHNSON-VELEZ WILL SPEAK AND EXPLAIN AT THE TIME

09:29:13 OF THAT ITEM AS TO WHY.

09:29:19 YESTERDAY WAS ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONALS DAY.

09:29:21 AND KNOWN AS SECRETARIES DAY.

09:29:25 MY LEGISLATIVE AIDE, LISA.

09:29:29 AND YOU SAW COUNCILMAN CARLSON'S OFFICE AND

09:29:32 EVERYBODY ELSE WHO WORKS BEHIND THE SCENES AND WORKS

09:29:34 VERY, VERY HARD.

09:29:35 WE APPRECIATE YOU.

09:29:38 HAVING SAID THAT, GO TO PUBLIC COMMENT, IF YOU ARE HERE

09:29:39 TO SPEAK --

09:29:43 >>LUIS VIERA: IF I MAY, MR. WEISMAN IS HERE WITH

09:29:46 ANDREW WARREN'S OFFICE, AND HE NEEDS TO LEAVE BY 10.

09:29:49 JUST IN CASE THERE A TRAFFIC JAM WITH PUBLIC COMMENT.

09:29:50 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: OKAY.

09:29:53 IF YOU WERE HERE TO SPEAK ON ANYTHING IN GENERAL AND

09:29:58 NOT ON ANY SPECIFIC WORKSHOP ITEM, STATE YOUR NAME AND

09:29:59 APPROACH THE PODIUM.

09:30:00 YOU WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES.

09:30:04 AS I MENTIONED EARLIER AFTER EACH WORKSHOP ITEM, YOU

09:30:06 WILL BE ABLE TO SPEAK ON THOSE ITEMS.

09:30:08 IF YOU WANT ANY GENERAL COMMENT, GO AHEAD NOW.

09:30:11 IF YOU SPEAK ON ANYTHING ELSE, YOU CAN'T SPEAK A SECOND

09:30:11 TIME.

09:30:16 GO AHEAD, SIR.

09:30:18 >> GOOD MORNING, COUNCIL.

09:30:22 BOB WHITMOR, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF CITY TREE.

09:30:27 WHEN VLADIMIR PUTIN THREATENED UKRAINE WITH AN ATTACK,

09:30:31 WE BELIEVE HE CAN, AND WE CAN ALL AGREE THE RIGHT THING TO

09:30:32 DO IS TO STOP HIM.

09:30:36 WE WERE SCARED AND AFRAID TO ESCALATE THE SITUATION.

09:30:39 SCARED HE WOULD TURN HIS WELL-FUNDED RAGE ON US.

09:30:44 WE DIDN'T HAVE THE COURAGE OR POLITICAL WILL TO STOP

09:30:47 HIM AND CAME IN AND THE DESTRUCTION CAUSED IS SOMETHING

09:30:49 WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO LIVE WITH.

09:30:53 NOW ALL WE CAN DO IS SEND SUPPORT AND MONEY AND HOPE WE

09:30:55 CAN MITIGATE THE DAMAGE AND PERHAPS BOLSTER POLITICAL

09:31:00 WILL TO PREVENT IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN.

09:31:04 WHEN THE DEVELOPERS AND THEIR HIRED HENCHMEN CAME FOR

09:31:07 JOHN DINGFELDER, I BELIEVE WE CAN ALL AGREE WE SHOULD

09:31:09 HAVE STOPPED THEM.

09:31:13 WE WERE AFRAID THAT THEY MIGHT TURN THEIR ATTENTION AND

09:31:17 LITIGATED HATE ON THOSE WHO CAME TO HIS DEFENSE.

09:31:22 SO WE LET THEM ATTACK AND THE DEVASTATION IS SOMETHING

09:31:26 BOTH WE AND JOHN AND HIS FAMILY WILL NEED TO LIVE WITH

09:31:30 FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.

09:31:35 SO NOW ALL WE CAN DO IS OFFER SUPPORT AND MONEY AND DO

09:31:38 EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MITIGATE THE DAMAGE DONE AND MAKE

09:31:42 SURE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN.

09:31:46 THE DINGFELDER DEFENSE FUND IS A WAY TO HELP JOHN

09:31:49 DINGFELDER RECOVER FROM HIS BATTLE WITH THE DEVELOPERS.

09:31:53 ADDITIONALLY, A WAY FOR YOU, THE PUBLIC, TO MAKE A

09:31:56 STATEMENT ABOUT STOPPING SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS FROM

09:31:59 ATTACKING OUR DEMOCRACY.

09:32:03 JOIN US IN THE FIGHT BY GIVING ANYTHING YOU CAN TO THE

09:32:05 DINGFELDER DEFENSE FUND.

09:32:15 GO TO GO FUND ME/DINGFELDER-DEFENSE-FUND.

09:32:19 GO FUND ME DINGFELDER DEFENSE FUND OR GO UP TO THE

09:32:23 SEARCH AND TYPE IN "DEFEND DINGFELDER."

09:32:24 MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.

09:32:29 SAY NEVER AGAIN TO THE PERPETRATORS OF THIS ATTACK ON

09:32:30 THE CITY THAT WE LOVE.

09:32:35 WITH THAT, I WILL ASK IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME.

09:32:36 THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

09:32:40 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

09:32:41 ALL RIGHT, NEXT SPEAKER.

09:32:44 PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

09:32:47 >> MY NAME IS ANDREW CARRANZA.

09:32:51 I'M HERE TO ACTUALLY SPEAK ABOUT THE MASTER PLAN, BUT I

09:32:54 HAVE TO GET TO WORK, SO I AM GOING TO SAY MY PEACE.

09:32:57 LIKE I SAID MY NAME IS ANDREW.

09:33:01 I ATTENDED MOST OF THE FEEDBACK MEETINGS THAT THE CITY

09:33:03 GAVE AT PARKS AND REC.

09:33:04 MOST OF THEM.

09:33:10 AND ALSO WAS AT A CALL WITH AECOM AND ASK FOR FEEDBACK.

09:33:13 I AM BIG ADVOCATE FOR PARKS AND REC.

09:33:16 THEY DO GREAT WORK WITH THE RESOURCES THEY HAVE, THE

09:33:17 AWARDS THIS HE GET.

09:33:18 THEY DESERVE IT.

09:33:22 IF THE REPORT TELLS US NOTHING, WE NEED MORE RESOURCES

09:33:24 FOR THE EXPLODING POPULATION.

09:33:27 WHAT IT WILL ALSO SAY THAT OUR PARKS AND REC FOLKS ARE

09:33:27 GREAT.

09:33:28 THEY ARE THE BEST.

09:33:30 THEY ARE GREAT AMBASSADORS FOR OUR CITY.

09:33:32 WE LOVE OUR COACHES.

09:33:34 AND THEY -- THEY UNDERSTAND THE SYSTEM.

09:33:37 IF YOU SPEAK TO A COACH, THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT IS WRONG

09:33:39 AND HOW TO FIX THINGS BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE EXPERIENCE.

09:33:40 THEY HAVE BEEN THERE.

09:33:43 SOMETHING WE SHOULD, YOU KNOW, THINK ABOUT.

09:33:46 WHAT I HOPE THE REPORT ALSO SAYS IS THAT THERE IS

09:33:48 MASSIVE INEQUALITY.

09:33:52 AND I KNOW THIS FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

09:34:00 MY SON GOES TO HENRY MILLION TOA REC CENTER IN HENRY

09:34:03 NOLA PARKS ONE OF THE LARGEST PARKS IN THE CITY.

09:34:04 12 ACRES.

09:34:08 OF ALL THE REC CENTERS, THE NINTH LARGEST PIECE OF

09:34:08 PROPERTY.

09:34:11 HOUSES WITH THE MAIN CLASSROOM IS ONE OF THE SMALLEST

09:34:13 AIR-CONDITIONED TRAILER.

09:34:15 IT IS NOT EVEN A BUILDING.

09:34:16 IT IS A TRAILER.

09:34:17 NOT SOMETHING WE OWN.

09:34:18 WE RENT THIS THING, OKAY.

09:34:21 YOU KNOW I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TO GET A BIGGER BUILDING

09:34:22 THERE.

09:34:29 JUST FOR REFERENCE, KATE JACKSON IS 10,000 SQUARE FEET.

09:34:32 LORETTA INGRAM IS 21,000 SQUARE FEET.

09:34:35 EVEN FORT DE SOTO GETS 2,000 SQUARE FEET.

09:34:38 WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR SOMETHING THAT IS LARGE.

09:34:41 HAVING SUCH A SMALL SPACE WE CAN'T OFFER PROGRAMS.

09:34:45 WE CAN'T OFFER SPACES IN AFTERSCHOOL AND SUMMER CAMPS TO

09:34:49 SEMINOLE HEIGHTS WHICH IS A HUGE COMMUNITY FULL OF

09:34:50 KIDS.

09:34:55 NOW IT IS ALSO THE REASON THAT THE CITY GAVE US THAT AND

09:34:57 THEY CLOSED US FOR 18 MONTHS DURING THE PANDEMIC.

09:35:01 18 MONTHS WE WERE CLOSED AND ONE OF -- ONE OF FIVE REC

09:35:04 CENTERS CLOSED FOR THAT LONG A PERIOD OF TIME BECAUSE

09:35:08 OUR BUILDING IS SO SMALL.

09:35:11 SOME OF YOU MAY RECALL THIS WE TRIED -- WE TALKED TO

09:35:11 YOU.

09:35:12 WE HAD MEETINGS.

09:35:15 AND WE TRIED TO COME UP WITH A SOLUTION.

09:35:16 A STOPGAP.

09:35:19 SOMETHING TEMPORARILY TO GET THESE KIDS BACK TO THEIR

09:35:19 PARK.

09:35:22 AND IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

09:35:27 WHAT I WAS ASKING FOR IS THAT WE ADDRESS THIS

09:35:30 INEQUALITY, AND I HOPE THAT THE MASTER PLAN DOES THAT.

09:35:32 AND I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE THAT MASTER PLAN IS MADE

09:35:35 PUBLIC CONSIDERING THE AMOUNT OF MONEY AND CIVIC

09:35:37 ENGAGEMENT THAT YOU ALL ASKED FOR.

09:35:38 AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

09:35:44 I WOULD LIKE TO SUBMIT THIS, A GIFT, PARK AND

09:35:46 RECREATION SYSTEMS PLANNING FOR CREATING RESILIENT

09:35:48 CONSISTENT COMMUNITIES.

09:35:50 IT IS ABOUT THE MASTER PLAN.

09:35:51 GREAT READ.

09:35:51 PRETTY THIN.

09:35:52 THIS IS FOR YOU.

09:35:54 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

09:35:55 >> ANY QUESTIONS?

09:35:59 NO?

09:36:01 GO AHEAD, COUNCILMAN VIERA.

09:36:04 >>LUIS VIERA: I USUALLY DON'T SPEAK DURING PUBLIC

09:36:09 COMMENT, BUT THANK YOU FOR COMING AND IF IT COMES UP

09:36:15 AND SOLICITED SUPPORT, IMPROVEMENTS OVER AT OLA.

09:36:20 I SPOKE TO PEOPLE IN THE PAST AND I DON'T DIRECTLY -- I

09:36:23 WILL SUPPORT ANYTHING THAT IS PUT ON IT, DESIGN MONEY

09:36:25 TO BEGIN OR CONSTRUCTION WHATEVER, I THINK THAT IS

09:36:28 REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT AND I KNOW WE ALL WILL.

09:36:31 IF YOU WANT TO MEET WITH ME TO TALK ABOUT THAT, SIR, I

09:36:32 WILL BE DELIGHTED.

09:36:34 THANK YOU FOR COMING BEFORE WORK.

09:36:41 >> THANK YOU, GUYS.

09:36:43 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: NEXT SPEAKER.

09:36:46 >> MY NAME IS MELVIN HICKS.

09:36:47 I GUESS I AM AT LARGE.

09:36:51 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION YESTERDAY WHEN I SPOKE WITH

09:36:53 INTERNAL AFFAIRS CAPTAIN THAT I WILL NEVER GET A FAIR

09:36:54 SHAKE.

09:36:58 IT DIME MY ATTENTION WHEN THEY WAS -- HE SAID

09:37:01 TECHNICALLY HE WAS JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER.

09:37:04 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION I WILL NEVER GET A FAIR SHAKE

09:37:07 WITH THE CITY COUNCIL UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION UNDER

09:37:11 THIS LEDGE SLAY BRANCH OF OUR CITY.

09:37:13 IT WOULD NEVER GET A FAIR SHAKE.

09:37:17 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT MY SAFETY WILL ALWAYS BE

09:37:18 AT RISK.

09:37:22 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THE SAFETY OF A PERSON OF

09:37:25 COLOR -- NOT THAT I WANT TO PUT RACE IN IT -- DON'T

09:37:30 MEAN A BEANS TO THE SAFETY PERSON OR CHARGE OF SAFETY.

09:37:33 I GUESS HE IS AN EX-COP, MAYBE.

09:37:33 I DON'T KNOW.

09:37:38 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION KNOWS

09:37:42 ME.

09:37:45 THAT THEY ALWAYS WANT TO BE VERY PREJUDICED TO ME.

09:37:46 IT SHOWS.

09:37:48 THE PATTERNS HAVE BEEN SHOWN.

09:37:53 SHOWN ALREADY MAY 25, 2020.

09:37:56 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THEY GOT THE DATES MESSED UP.

09:37:58 IT DIDN'T HAPPEN ON THE 23RD.

09:38:00 IT HAPPENED IN THE 25TH.

09:38:03 CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THE CITY COUNCIL LEGISLATIVE

09:38:07 BRANCH ADDING VERY INREGULAR OF THEIR DUTIES, VIOLATION

09:38:09 OF THEIR DUTIES TO A PERSON.

09:38:10 TO THE PEOPLE.

09:38:12 BUT I AM THE PEOPLE TOO.

09:38:17 BUT IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT YOU FAIL -- KEEP ON

09:38:22 FAILING MISERABLY BUT TRY TO DO STUFF TO LOOK GOOD.

09:38:22 POLITICS.

09:38:24 THAT IS WHAT WE ARE DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW.

09:38:24 POLITICS.

09:38:31 IT CAME TO MY ATTENTION THAT WHAT IS RIGHT?

09:38:33 WHAT IS LAW?

09:38:37 I READ DOWN THERE SAYS LAW -- THE LAW MATTERS.

09:38:38 WHERE AT?

09:38:42 WHERE DOES THE LAW MATTERS AT?

09:38:44 WHERE DOES THE LAW MATTER?

09:38:45 IT DOESN'T MATTER HERE.

09:38:50 BECAUSE THE PROCESS NEVER GETS DONE RIGHT.

09:38:52 YOU FAIL IN THE PROCESS WITH ME.

09:39:00 YOU FAIL WITH EVERYTHING FROM STEP A, B, C AND D.

09:39:02 YOU FAILED, FAILED.

09:39:04 AND IT HAS BEEN PROVEN.

09:39:07 BUT YOU ARE TRYING TO LOOK GOOD.

09:39:11 JOHN BENNETT TRYING TO LOOK GOOD.

09:39:17 SO WE ALREADY KNOW THIS IS CRIMINALLY, BUT Y'ALL WANT

09:39:17 TO LOOK GOOD.

09:39:22 BUT IT IS TIME TO MAN UP.

09:39:24 YOU ALL ARE MEN, RIGHT?

09:39:25 YOU GOT FAMILIES, RIGHT?

09:39:28 HOW DO YOU LOOK THEM IN THE EYE AT NIGHT.

09:39:33 HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN TO YOUR DAUGHTER -- DADDY, WHO IS

09:39:34 THAT RIGHT IS THERE?

09:39:35 WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT THERE?

09:39:37 HOW DO YOU DO IT?

09:39:40 A MAN TELL THE TRUTH, BUT NO ONE IS TELLING THE TRUTH.

09:39:42 NO ONE IS TELLING THE TRUTH.

09:39:44 IT'S HARD.

09:39:49 HAVE A GOOD DAY.

09:39:51 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ALL RIGHT, NEXT SPEAKER.

09:39:54 PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

09:39:55 >> GOOD MORNING, COUNCIL.

09:39:58 GARY WISEMAN, THE CHIEF OF STAFF AND ASSISTANT STATE

09:40:01 ATTORNEY OF THE STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE IN OUR

09:40:02 JURISDICTION.

09:40:04 PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU THIS MORNING.

09:40:07 MY COMMENTS ADDRESSED TO ITEM 5 OF THE AGENDA, THE

09:40:09 WORKSHOP ON CRIME VICTIMS AND HOW TO BETTER SUPPORT

09:40:10 THEM.

09:40:13 AT THE STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE, OF COURSE, WE HAVE OVER

09:40:14 300 STAFF MEMBERS.

09:40:18 WE HAVE -- INCLUDED IN THAT IS 130 ASSISTANT STATE

09:40:20 ATTORNEYS DEDICATED EVERY DAY SUPPORTING VICTIMS OF

09:40:20 CRIME.

09:40:22 IT IS AN IMPORTANT WORK.

09:40:23 THE BEST EXAMPLE OF GOVERNMENT.

09:40:26 I SAY THAT TO YOU BECAUSE WITHIN OUR PROGRAM, WE HAVE A

09:40:28 VICTIM ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.

09:40:31 OVER 30 PROFESSIONALS DEDICATED EVERY DAY TO MAKE SURE

09:40:34 VICTIMS OF CRIME KNOW HOW TO NAVIGATE THE CRIMINAL

09:40:37 JUSTICE SYSTEM WHICH CAN OFTEN BE CONFUSING.

09:40:41 YOU KNOW WELL THAT CRIME VICTIMS ARE IN A MOMENT OF

09:40:42 VULNERABILITY.

09:40:45 WE ARE SEEING THEM AT THEIR WORST MOMENTS AND WE NEED

09:40:48 TO LIFT PEOPLE UP AND THAT IS WHAT OUR OFFICE DOES

09:40:48 EVERY DAY.

09:40:52 THE IMPORTANT WORK YOU WILL UNDERTAKE TO DISCUSS CRIME

09:40:54 VICTIMS AND HOW TO BETTER SUPPORT THEM IS GOING ON

09:40:54 THROUGHOUT THE STATE.

09:40:57 I CAN SHARE WITH YOU DATA OF HOW THAT LOOKS.

09:41:01 THE LAW AND CONSTITUTIONAL AMOUNT OF VICTIMS RIGHTS

09:41:05 PASSED WITH 60% -- NEARLY 60% IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY.

09:41:08 EVERY YEAR, OUR OFFICE ASSISTS 40,000 VICTIMS.

09:41:11 I CAN TELL YOU WE MAKE NOTIFICATION CALLS TALKING ABOUT

09:41:15 COURT EVENTS 400,000 TIMES A YEAR.

09:41:17 BUT THAT IS JUST DATA.

09:41:20 SUPPORTING CRIME VICTIMS IS AN INDEPENDENT EVALUATION

09:41:21 OF EACH CASE.

09:41:24 AND EVERY VICTIM NEEDS SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

09:41:26 SO THE IMPORTANT WORK THAT YOU WILL UNDERTAKE THIS

09:41:29 MORNING, THE STATE ATTORNEY, ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN OF

09:41:31 THE STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE SUPPORT IT.

09:41:34 I WANT TO YOU KNOW THAT WE BELIEVE THAT SUPPORTING

09:41:36 VICTIMS AND HAVING THIS DISCUSSION THIS MORNING

09:41:40 REPRESENTS THAT WHICH REPRESENTS WHAT IS BEST OF

09:41:41 GOVERNMENT.

09:41:42 WE APPRECIATE IT.

09:41:45 WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING AND LISTENING TO THE

09:41:48 DISCUSSION AND STAND READY TO PARTNER WITH YOU IN ANY

09:41:53 WAY, SHAPE OR FORM IN ADVOCACY OF CRIME VICTIMS.

09:41:55 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

09:41:57 NEXT SPEAKER, STATE YOUR NAME.

09:41:59 >> MY NAME IS NATHAN HAGAN.

09:42:01 THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN, FOR THE FLEXIBILITY IN

09:42:04 COMMENTS, OR I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO ATTEND AND GIVE MY

09:42:05 COMMENTS OTHERWISE.

09:42:08 A COUPLE OF ISSUES COMING UP TODAY.

09:42:12 I HAVEN'T REALLY BEEN IN THE -- IN THE WEEDS OF THE

09:42:14 PARKS AND REC THING.

09:42:16 I AM UP HERE TALKING OF DENSITY A LOT.

09:42:18 IF WE ARE NOT BUILDING PARKS OR INVESTING THESE

09:42:22 RESOURCES, THAT IS GOING BE TOO REAL PROBLEM FOR PEOPLE

09:42:23 IN THE COMMUNITY.

09:42:26 YOU CAN'T HAVE -- YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE LOVE THEIR

09:42:30 FRONT YARDS, AND I FEEL PEOPLE HAVE NEED THE OPPORTUNITY

09:42:34 HAVE A COMMUNITY WITH REALLY GOOD ACCESS TO PARKS.

09:42:37 THAT IS A VERY BIG PART OF THE FUTURE OF TAMPA.

09:42:39 ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE, I PLAYED SOCCER MY WHOLE LIFE

09:42:42 AND I WENT TO COLLEGE, I STOPPED PLAYING.

09:42:43 I WAS TOO BUSY.

09:42:47 I THOUGHT I WASN'T IN HIGH SCHOOL ANYMORE.

09:42:48 THAT PERIOD OF MY LIFE WAS OVER.

09:42:50 THIS WAS IN GAINESVILLE.

09:42:56 AND AFTER I GRADUATED, A COUPLE OF YEARS WENT BY, AND I

09:42:59 FOUND MY WAY INTO AN ADULT SOCCER LEAGUE AN ONE OF THE

09:43:02 BEST THINGS I HAVE EVER DONE IN MY ADULT LIFE IN TERMS

09:43:07 OF PERSONAL FULFILLMENT AND BEING PART OF A COMMUNITY.

09:43:11 I FEEL THAT -- IT IS KIND OF STRANGE NOWHERE ANYWHERE

09:43:12 DOWNTOWN THAT YOU CAN DO THAT.

09:43:16 YOU HAVE TO GO ALL THE WAY TO COURTNEY CAMPBELL TO PLAY

09:43:19 SOCCER WITH PEOPLE IN ANY ORGANIZED WAY.

09:43:23 THE ONLY PARK THAT I AM AWARE OF SOMEBODY WHO DOESN'T

09:43:27 REALLY DRIVE TO PLAY SOCCER EVEN ON A PICK-UP GAME

09:43:28 BASIS.

09:43:31 I BELIEVE WE NEED TO BE INVESTING IN PARKS.

09:43:32 JULIA LANE IS GREAT.

09:43:37 GREAT TO HAVE LAWNS AND PUBLIC SPACES, WE NEED FIELDS

09:43:43 AND IN OUR URBAN CORE AND NEED THINGS TO DO WEAK AT

09:43:43 THATABLY.

09:43:48 I WANT TO TALK ABOUT PARKING THAT WILL COME UP IN A

09:43:49 PRIVATE AMENDMENT.

09:43:50 THIS HAS BEEN DONE TO DEATH.

09:43:53 WHEN WE HAVE PARKING MINIMUMS THAT ARE OUT OF LINE WITH

09:43:55 WHAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY NEED.

09:43:59 WE ARE MANDATING HOUSING FOR CARS OVER HOUSING FOR

09:43:59 PEOPLE.

09:44:00 WE ARE IN A CRISIS RIGHT NOW.

09:44:03 I HOPE WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE THE DOWNTOWN CORE

09:44:07 SHOULD NOT BE CONTROVERSIAL TO BE FLEXIBLE ON PARKING.

09:44:10 THAT IS A HUGE BURDEN ON OUR COMMUNITY IN TERMS OF THE

09:44:13 ABILITY TO BUILD MORE HOUSING AND AFFECTS THE COST OF

09:44:14 HOUSING.

09:44:18 AND, YOU KNOW, WE SHOULD -- I THINK THEY ARE ASKING FOR

09:44:18 50%.

09:44:21 YOU KNOW I WOULD LOVE FOR THEM TO ASK FOR 100%.

09:44:25 BUT 50% IS PRETTY GOOD.

09:44:28 I KNOW THERE ARE SOME PUBLIC CODE AMENDMENTS COMING UP

09:44:29 AS WELL.

09:44:32 THE GRAY WATER BONUS DENSITY.

09:44:34 MY UNDERSTANDING IS IT IS A REQUIREMENT AT THE STATE LEVEL.

09:44:37 WE HAVE A LOT OF BONUS DENSITY OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE

09:44:38 NOT FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

09:44:41 AND WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PRIORITIZE AFFORDABLE

09:44:45 HOUSING BONUS DENSITY OVER THE OTHER ONES.

09:44:48 AND EVERY PROJECT THAT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF BONUS DENSITY

09:44:50 SHOULD BE DOING AFFORDABLE HOUSING, AT LEAST OVER A

09:44:53 CERTAIN NUMBER OF UNITS THAT CAN ACTUALLY SUPPORT IT.

09:44:56 AND MY FINAL COMMENT IS STREET CAFES ARE GREAT.

09:44:58 LET'S MAKE THOSE EVERYWHERE.

09:44:59 POCKET PARKS.

09:45:00 WHATEVER YOU CAN DO.

09:45:01 THANK YOU.

09:45:03 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

09:45:06 NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

09:45:08 >> GOOD MORNING, CONNIE BURTON.

09:45:14 THE PRAYER OF THE MINISTER TEND TO REFLECT WHAT I AM

09:45:15 GOING TO SAY.

09:45:20 AND WHEN HE TALKED OF HIS PERIOD OF LIVING DURING

09:45:22 SEGREGATION.

09:45:25 I THINK WE REALLY NEED TO CONSIDER THE AMERICA OF WHICH

09:45:25 WE ARE LIVING NOW.

09:45:32 WHEN WE THINK OF NEIGHBORHOODS THAT RECEIVE THE LEAST.

09:45:34 COMMUNITIES THAT ARE DEALING WITH A SERIOUS ECONOMIC

09:45:38 INEQUALITY.

09:45:41 THE ONGOING DISPARITIES THAT EXIST WHETHER IT IS

09:45:46 THROUGH EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT, OR CRIMINAL JUSTICE, IT

09:45:53 IS A POPULATION THAT IS STILL TRYING TO WEAVE ITSELF

09:45:56 INTO THIS AMERICA THAT IS MOVING BACK TOWARD

09:45:58 SEGREGATION.

09:46:01 ALL WHITENESS.

09:46:05 IT IS THE REALITY THAT WE SEE THAT IS HAPPENING ACROSS

09:46:07 THE BOARD.

09:46:13 WHAT BROUGHT -- BRING ME HERE IS TALKING ABOUT HOUSING

09:46:16 AND ONGOING ISSUES THAT WE ARE SEEING IN THE CITY OF

09:46:20 TAMPA.

09:46:22 HAD A NUMBER OF PRESS CONFERENCES FROM THE MAYOR'S

09:46:27 OFFICE AND OTHERS THAT SEE THE ISSUES, BUT THE

09:46:36 COMMUNITY IS NOW CRYING OUT IN TERMS OF HOW WILL THE

09:46:37 REVOLUTION COME.

09:46:42 IN THE ONLY SILVER OAKS APARTMENTS, BUT LOW-INCOME

09:46:47 HOUSING WHERE PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED TO LIVE IN CONDITIONS

09:46:51 THAT WHITE WOMEN AND FAMILIES DO NOT HAVE TO -- IT IS

09:46:52 NOT A CONSIDERATION.

09:46:57 OFTEN I ASK MYSELF, WHERE DO POOR WHITE WOMEN AND

09:46:59 FAMILIES END UP.

09:47:05 AND IT IS NOT SILVER OAKS, NOT JACKSON HEIGHTS, NOT

09:47:05 COLUMBUS COUNTRY.

09:47:10 HERE AT SILVER OAKS WHERE THEY ARE RECEIVING A TON OF

09:47:12 FEDERAL DOLLARS RIGHT HERE IN THIS CITY, AND YOU CAN

09:47:16 SAYS IT NOT WITHIN YOUR ARM REACH, BUT IT IS, BECAUSE

09:47:21 IT IS RESIDENTS AND VOTERS OF THIS COMMUNITY THAT NEED

09:47:22 YOUR ASSISTANCE.

09:47:25 I AM HOPING THAT FROM ALL THE GATHERING OF ALL OF THE

09:47:29 PRESS THAT WE HAD ON THE CONDITIONS OF THESE

09:47:36 DEVELOPMENTS, EVEN WITH MARCO RUBIO ASKING THAT HUD

09:47:40 SUSPEND SENDING THESE PEOPLE FUNDING THAT YOU TAKE

09:47:42 DIRECT ACTION.

09:47:44 THE HEALTH CONCERN OF CHILDREN THAT HAVE TO WALK

09:47:47 THROUGH DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS TO GET ON THE BUS, NOT

09:47:51 BEING ABLE TO REST PEACEFULLY AT NIGHTS IN TERMS OF

09:47:55 ONGOING HEALTH CRISIS IS CALLING ON THIS COUNCIL AND

09:47:57 THIS MAYOR TO TAKE AN IMMEDIATE ACTION SO WE CAN SAY

09:48:00 THAT ALL LIVES MATTER.

09:48:01 THANK YOU.

09:48:02 >>ORLANDO GUDES: MR. CHAIRMAN.

09:48:06 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, SIR, COUNCILMAN GUDES.

09:48:10 >>ORLANDO GUDES: I AM HOPEFUL -- I SEE MISS WYNN BACK

09:48:10 THERE.

09:48:15 I AM HOPEFUL LAST WEEK WHEN ASKED HOW WE WILL PARTNER

09:48:18 WITH THE STATE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT BE INVOLVED WITH

09:48:18 THIS.

09:48:23 I AM HOPING WE CAN COME BACK AND HAVE MUTUAL AID -- NOT

09:48:25 JUST SILVER OAK.

09:48:26 THERE ARE PLENTY OF THEM.

09:48:28 I THINK WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IF THE STATE DOESN'T HAVE

09:48:32 THE MANPOWER, TO GET SOME OF THEIR DOLLARS TO GET MORE

09:48:37 MANPOWER TO ASSIST WITH CODE ENFORCEMENT TO GET IN

09:48:39 THERE AND CITE THESE PEOPLE.

09:48:44 AS FAR AS MARCO RUBIO, THIS COUNCIL CAN SEND A

09:48:50 RESOLUTION TO HIS OFFICE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF H. U. D.

09:48:51 TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON.

09:48:54 I WILL MAKE THAT MOTION AT THE END THAT THIS COUNCIL

09:48:56 SEND SOMETHING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN

09:48:57 DEVELOPMENT.

09:48:59 >> THANK YOU.

09:49:01 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

09:49:02 YES, SIR.

09:49:14 NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

09:49:16 >> GOOD MORNING, COUNCIL.

09:49:19 BARBARA VAN ARDSDALE.

09:49:22 I WAS HERE LAST WEEK, AND I DID NOT PLAN ON SPEAKING AND

09:49:24 I KIND OF FELL APART.

09:49:26 I'M HERE TODAY BECAUSE I WAS JUST HANDED MY LEASE BY MY

09:49:29 LANDLORD IN MY PARKING LOT.

09:49:31 EXACTLY WHAT THAT WOMAN IS SAYING.

09:49:35 I AM BEING EXTORTED FOR MONEY, A 10% INCREASE IN MY

09:49:39 RENT FOR 288-SQUARE-FOOT DUMP THAT NOBODY IN THIS ROOM

09:49:42 WOULD WANT TO LIVE IN AND BE THERE OVERNIGHT EVEN.

09:49:46 IT IS NOT WHAT I INTENDED AT 71 TO LIVE ALL OVER THE

09:49:50 COUNTRY TO PICK TAMPA AS MY HOME TO RETIRE IN OF CHOICE

09:49:55 AND TO END UP HERE IN THIS STATE IS MORE OVERWHELMING

09:49:56 THAN I CAN IMAGINE.

09:49:58 GOD IS ON MY SIDE.

09:50:00 HE HAS GUIDED ME MY WHOLE LIFE.

09:50:03 I HAVE SEEN SO MUCH CORRUPTION, BUT TAMPA IS SO

09:50:11 DISAPPOINTING IN WAYS THAT I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN.

09:50:13 THE TAMPA HOUSING AUTHORITY WAIT LIST.

09:50:19 I GOT IN, 6033 THIS WEEK.

09:50:23 IN THE MEANTIME, CURIOSITY CREEK LANE, SECTION 8.

09:50:24 AND I PAY MY RENT.

09:50:29 MY RENT AN ASTRONOMICAL, 70% OF MY MONTHLY INCOME.

09:50:32 I COULDN'T QUALIFY FOR THAT PLACE IF I NEEDED THREE

09:50:35 TIMES OF MY MONTHLY INCOME AND I DON'T HAVE IT.

09:50:37 I LIVE ON $1400 A MONTH.

09:50:41 EACH DAY I AM ALIVE, I LIVE WORSE THAN THE LAST DAY

09:50:44 BECAUSE THE COST OF LIVING AND WHERE I AM LIVING

09:50:46 DETERIORATES.

09:50:49 YESTERDAY MORNING, I AM IN BED ON BED REST SUPPOSEDLY

09:50:52 FROM AN ACCIDENT LAST WEEK AT SOCIAL SECURITY.

09:50:56 NOT ONLY I DID WATCH DRUG DEALS GO DOWN IN MY PARKING

09:50:57 LOT WITHIN FIGHTS OF ME.

09:51:01 I WATCH MY NEIGHBOR GO OUT TO A CAR UNDRESSED WITH JUST

09:51:04 -- NOT EVEN UNDERPANTS COVERING HIS BUTT.

09:51:07 WALKING TO THE CAR IN THE TRUNK, OPENING UP BOXES AND

09:51:09 DRESSING IN MY PARKING LOT WHERE I AM LOOKING.

09:51:11 WHERE ARE THE POLICE?

09:51:13 THEY ARE THERE ALL THE TIME DURING THE DAY CHASING OUT

09:51:16 ALL THE OTHER DRUG PEOPLE, THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR

09:51:19 HOMES, WHO COME BACK IN AND SLEEP THERE OVERNIGHT.

09:51:22 AND THIS CRIME IS OVERWHELMING.

09:51:24 TAMPA HOUSING IS OVERWHELMING.

09:51:26 THE PEOPLE WON'T MEET WITH YOU.

09:51:30 I WATCHED THE MARY BETHUNE BUILDING AND THE LIVER

09:51:32 PROJECT AND I GO DOWN THERE AND DRIVE.

09:51:35 I KNOW VACANCIES IN THAT BUILDING FOR MONTHS.

09:51:36 NOBODY IS GETTING IN.

09:51:37 WHY?

09:51:38 THE STAFF DISAPPEARS.

09:51:39 THEY CHANGE STAFF.

09:51:43 YOU CAN NOT REACH SOMEBODY IN PERSON.

09:51:44 I TRIED AND TRIED.

09:51:46 NOW I GOT MY LEASE ON SUNDAY.

09:51:49 I AM IN MY PLACE FOR ANOTHER YEAR.

09:51:53 I DON'T KNOW IF I WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE RENT FOR

09:51:54 THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

09:51:58 I AM LIVING ON A CREDIT CARD FOR FOOD AND NECESSITY.

09:52:02 MY CAR BLEW UP NAY MOVED HERE WITH.

09:52:03 I AM ALIVE WITH THE GRACE OF GOD.

09:52:07 I DON'T WANT TO LIVE WHERE I AM AT BUT BETTER WHERE I

09:52:07 COULD BE.

09:52:10 I PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE FORCED OUT LIKE I WAS.

09:52:12 THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO ME TODAY.

09:52:14 THAT'S IT.

09:52:18 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

09:52:19 >> THANK YOU, SIR.

09:52:20 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, SIR.

09:52:28 GO AHEAD AND PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

09:52:30 >> GOOD MORNING.

09:52:32 PASTOR FRANK WILLIAMS.

09:52:36 LOCATED AT 11 EAST SCOTT STREET, A PARADISE MISSIONARY

09:52:38 BAPTIST CHURCH.

09:52:43 YOU KNOW, I -- I AM GOING TO READ SOME SCRIPTURE TO YOU

09:52:46 ALL COMING FROM THE BOOK OF MARK.

09:52:52 LET ME SEE WHAT -- MARK, 16TH CHAPTER, BEGINNING AT THE

09:52:53 15TH VERSE.

09:52:58 JESUS SAID, GO YE.

09:53:01 JESUS SAID GO YE AND TO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE

09:53:03 GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.

09:53:07 HE THAT BELIEVETH AND IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED.

09:53:12 BUT HE WHO BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED.

09:53:14 AND SIGNS SHOULD FOLLOW THOSE WHO BELIEVE.

09:53:19 IN MY NAME CAST OUT DEVIL, THEY SHALL SPEAK WITH NEW

09:53:19 TONGUE.

09:53:21 THEY SHALL TAKE NO SUFFERING.

09:53:28 AND IF THEY DRINK OF ANYTHING, IT SHALL NOT HURT THEM.

09:53:32 THEY WILL LAY THEIR HAND ON THE SICK AND, THEY SHALL BE

09:53:33 RECOVERED.

09:53:35 THAT IS YOUR SCRIPTURE FOR THE DAY.

09:53:36 THANK YOU, JESUS.

09:53:38 BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

09:53:45 I WAS COMING DOWN HERE AND I -- AND I -- I HAD -- PLAY

09:53:46 CALLED THE JACKSON HOUSE.

09:53:49 YOU OUGHT TO SEE THAT SITTING THROUGH, AND IT HAS BEEN

09:53:50 THERE A LONG TIME.

09:53:52 NOBODY IS DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT.

09:53:55 IT HAS BEEN SITTING THERE FOR YEARS.

09:53:56 NOT JUST YESTERDAY.

09:53:59 AND THAT JACKSON HOUSE NEEDS TO COME DOWN.

09:54:01 IT CAN'T BE RENOVATED.

09:54:04 IT NEEDS TO COME DOWN COMPLETELY.

09:54:07 Y'ALL NEED TO START DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.

09:54:11 THE CONDITION OF PEOPLE'S HOUSES AND DON'T CHARGE THEM

09:54:13 NO MONEY TOO.

09:54:15 WE GOT TO UNDERSTAND.

09:54:18 THEY GAVE ME A CITATION BECAUSE OF THE GRASS THAT IS

09:54:20 GROWING AROUND MY YARD AND THE JACKSON HOUSE IS RIGHT

09:54:24 HERE AND SITTING UP THERE, GETTING READY TO FALL DOWN

09:54:25 ANY TIME.

09:54:27 AND YOU GOT IT SITTING THERE.

09:54:29 AND WON'T DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.

09:54:31 YOU KNOW WHAT THE MAYOR SAY?

09:54:34 SHE SAY THAT SHE WAS GOING TO PUT MILLIONS AND MILLIONS

09:54:38 OF DOLLARS IN THE BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD.

09:54:44 WHERE THE BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD, I AIN'T SEEN BROWN -- IN

09:54:47 ANY NEIGHBORHOOD AS FAR AS MY CHURCH IS CONCERNED.

09:54:50 IT IS ON MY CITATION ON MY CHURCH.

09:54:52 I HAPPEN TO GO THERE ONE DAY, AND I WANT TO YOU GET A

09:54:53 COPY OF THIS HERE.

09:54:57 THE GUY THAT PUT UP THERE, I CAN'T HARDLY READ -- IT

09:55:00 IS THAT -- HIS NAME IS BILLY CHAPMAN.

09:55:02 WHO IS THE HELL IS BILLY CHAPMAN?

09:55:04 HE NEEDS TO GET THINGS STRAIGHT.

09:55:05 THAT IS A CHURCH.

09:55:09 AND HE IS GOING TO CITATION OF A CHURCH?

09:55:11 BECAUSE HE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY OUR CIVIL RIGHTS.

09:55:14 TAKE AWAY OUR BIBLICAL RIGHTS.

09:55:16 TAKE AWAY OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

09:55:20 TAKE AWAY ALL OF OUR RIGHTS OF A HUMAN BEING.

09:55:22 TREAT US LIKE WE ARE AN ANIMAL.

09:55:23 TREAT US LIKE WE ARE DOGS.

09:55:27 ANOTHER THING, THEY NEED TO GET SOME OF THE BUILDINGS

09:55:32 DOWN -- DOWNTOWN WHAT YOU ALL CALL A HIGH-RISE.

09:55:35 SHOULD CALL THIS A DOG HOUSE BECAUSE YOU AIN'T -- GOT A

09:55:36 BUNCH OF DOGS.

09:56:01 PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

09:56:04 >> MENTESNOT, TAMPA, FLORIDA.

09:56:06 THE FACT OF THE MATTER THE CITY COUNCIL AND ANYBODY

09:56:09 ELSE CANNOT FIX ANYTHING.

09:56:11 CAN'T FIX BAYSHORE BOULEVARD FROM FLOODING OR HENDERSON

09:56:13 OR DALE MABRY FROM FLOODING.

09:56:17 THEY CAN'T FIX AS THE GENTLEMAN SAID THE JACKSON HOUSE

09:56:21 WHICH IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO AFRICAN PEOPLE.

09:56:25 AN EMBARRASSMENT OF AFRICAN PEOPLE.

09:56:28 THEY CAN'T FIX ANYTHING BUT HIGH GAS PRICES FOR

09:56:32 WORKING-CLASS PEOPLE.

09:56:34 NEITHER HERE OR THERE.

09:56:37 GOES ON WITH WHITE CAPITALISM.

09:56:40 WHITE PEOPLE USE 80% OF THE WORLD'S RESOURCES

09:56:44 ULTIMATELY CONTROLLING 100% OF THE WORLD'S ECONOMY,

09:56:48 POLITICAL STRUCTURES, SOCIAL STRUCTURES, HUMAN

09:56:51 RESOURCES, INAGAIN US INTO THE, SPACE EXPLORATION,

09:56:54 WATER, MINERAL RESOURCES R&D EVERYTHING THAT IS

09:56:56 IMPORTANT ABOUT LIFE AND DEATH.

09:57:01 WHITE PEOPLE IS 48% OF TAMPA'S POPULATION AND CONTROL

09:57:03 OF TAMPA'S WEALTH.

09:57:08 WE AS AFRICAN CONTROL ZERO PERCENT OF THE TAMPA CITY

09:57:11 BUDGET.

09:57:14 ZERO PERCENT OF TOURISM AND TOURISM BUDGET THAT GETS ZERO

09:57:18 PERCENT NOTHING FROM THE CITY, COUNTY, STATE OR

09:57:19 FEDERAL BUDGET.

09:57:24 THE WHITE PEOPLE USE US AS PAWNS, AS CENSUS NUMBERS IN

09:57:25 ORDER TO GET FINANCIAL BENEFITS.

09:57:29 FINANCIAL REFORMS IN THE FORM OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

09:57:31 THAT GO TO THEM AND THEY ACT AS WE ARE THE BENEFICIARY

09:57:36 AS PART OF THEIR SCAMS.

09:57:40 TAKE FOR INSTANCE THE $100 MILLION HANNA STREET

09:57:40 PROJECT.

09:57:42 NOTHING FOR THE AFRICANS.

09:57:46 WHITE PEOPLE ARE SUCH BULLIES THEY DON'T WANT AFRICAN

09:57:47 TALKING OF THE 1619 PROJECT.

09:57:51 THEY DON'T AFRICANS TALKING OF SLAVERY, PAST

09:57:54 INJUSTICES, CURRENT INJUSTICES, REPARATIONS OR HOW LONG

09:58:00 WE AFRICANS HAVE BEEN TREATED FOR THE PAST 632 YEARS

09:58:04 UNDER COLONIALISM, NEAR COLONIALISM, CAPITALISM AND

09:58:09 IMPERIALISM, OTHER SIGNS OF WHITE POWER.

09:58:12 WHITE PEOPLE ARE BULLIES THAT THEY NEVER LET BLACK

09:58:16 PEOPLE EVER GET TO THE TABLE FOR EQUAL SHARE OF

09:58:17 ANYTHING POSITIVE.

09:58:18 THE WHITE PEOPLE INTENTIONALLY HAVE A NEW DESCRIPTION

09:58:21 OF THE INVOLVED AFRICAN.

09:58:24 A REPLACEMENT WORD FOR THE N WORD AND THIS WORD IS

09:58:25 WOKE.

09:58:28 THE PEOPLE WENT FROM CALLING US THUGS, RIOTERS,

09:58:32 LOOTERS, CAREER CRIMINALS, REPEAT OFFENDER, AND NOW

09:58:36 DEROGATORY CALLING US AFRICAN PEOPLE "WOKE."

09:58:39 WOKE IS THE NEW N WORD RIGHT HERE IN THE CITY OF TAMPA,

09:58:40 SITTING RIGHT HERE ON CITY COUNCIL.

09:58:43 AN OLD WHITE MAN THAT PROBABLY NEVER SEEN A BLACK MAN

09:58:47 SINCE HIS GRANDPARENTS BOUGHT ONE AND WHEN THAT WHITE

09:58:50 MAN SEEN A REAL AFRICAN AND HIS COLLEAGUES, THEY HAD

09:58:55 THAT AFRICAN ARRESTED, PROSECUTED AND IN JAIL.

09:58:56 NEVER APOLOGIZED.

09:58:56 NO COMPENSATION.

09:58:58 NO REPARATIONS.

09:59:01 AND THIS IS HOW ALL AFRICANS ARE BEING TREATED IN THIS

09:59:01 CITY.

09:59:04 AND WE NEED REPARATIONS FROM THE TIME THIS CITY STARTED

09:59:06 TO 2022.

10:00:12 >>ORLANDO GUDES: DO YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT

10:00:14 YOUR GROUP OR PAMPHLET OR ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR GROUP?

10:00:16 COULD YOU LEAVE IT WITH MISS EDWARDS.

10:00:18 DO YOU HAVE A PAMPHLET.

10:00:20 >> I WILL BRING IT TO THE COUNCIL.

10:00:22 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

10:00:23 >> THANK YOU.

10:00:24 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, MA'AM.

10:00:25 PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

10:00:28 >> GOOD MORNING, FIRST OF ALL.

10:00:34 AND MY NAME IS IRMA CELESTIN.

10:00:39 I LIVE AT 812 WEST COLUMBUS DRIVE.

10:00:44 SINCE 2004, THE CITY HAD WORKED RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY

10:00:45 HOUSE.

10:00:47 AND THEY HAD CAUSED DAMAGE.

10:00:54 I REALIZED THAT UNTIL 2006.

10:00:59 AND YOU CAN ALL SEE IT, BECAUSE I'M PRETTY SURE YOU ALL

10:01:01 TRAVEL SOMETIMES ON COLUMBUS DRIVE.

10:01:06 BUT AS I LOOK AROUND, IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS FROM THE

10:01:10 WHOLE -- THE WHOLE CITY IS ALL SCREWED UP, LET ME PUT

10:01:14 IT THAT WAY, THE ROAD.

10:01:18 AND WHAT HAPPENED, YOU ALL GIVE -- HOW WOULD I SAY

10:01:22 PERMIT TO THOSE CONTRACTOR.

10:01:25 I WONDER IF YOU GUYS EVER GO BACK AND SEE WHAT KIND OF

10:01:29 WORK OR IS THERE REALLY SOMEONE LOOKING AT THESE WORK

10:01:32 THAT IS BEING DONE.

10:01:39 BECAUSE SOMETIMES ONE MINUTE ONE YEAR THERE IS MORE OR

10:01:40 LESS PAINT THE ROAD.

10:01:44 I WOULDN'T SAY FIX IT BECAUSE IT IS FULL OF CRACKS, AND

10:01:46 IT GETS MESSED UP AGAIN.

10:01:51 SO BY KEEPING AND PUTTING MONEY ON THE SAME ROAD AT ALL

10:01:55 TIMES, YOU NEVER FIX THE PROBLEM, BUT WITH ME, MY HOUSE

10:01:56 SHAKE.

10:01:58 ALL MY KIDS, FAMILY MOVED.

10:02:01 I AM STILL THERE BECAUSE PERSONALLY, I CANNOT AFFORD

10:02:05 GETTING ANOTHER PLACE.

10:02:07 INSURANCE AND SO ON AND SO FORTH.

10:02:11 I WANT TO FIND REALLY IS RESPONSIBLE AND NOT THE

10:02:12 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION.

10:02:13 IT IS THE CITY.

10:02:18 BECAUSE IT CAME FROM UNDERGROUND WHERE THE WATER, THE

10:02:20 SEWER AND SO ON AND SO FORTH, YOU KNOW TRAVELED

10:02:22 THROUGH.

10:02:25 AND THEY ALWAYS DIGGING, I WOULD SAY.

10:02:29 BUT THEY NEVER DO THE WORK CORRECTLY, PROPERLY.

10:02:35 RIGHT NOW.

10:02:39 I AM SO FED UP AND IF EVERYTHING HAPPENED TO ME, THE

10:02:42 CITY WILL BE RESPONSIBLE, AND THAT IS HOW I LOOK AT IT.

10:02:46 BECAUSE YOU ALL STARTED DOING WORK.

10:02:48 AND DAMAGED MY PROPERTY.

10:02:50 IT IS HARD FOR ME TO SLEEP.

10:02:56 AT ANY TIME, ANY ROAD AND THE TRUCKS AND WHEN YOU TAKE

10:02:59 COLUMBUS DRIVE, IT GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER SIDE.

10:03:02 IT IS LIKE AN EXIT.

10:03:09 MR. GUDES, I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE MY CITY COUNCIL

10:03:15 PERSON FROM THE SIDE WHERE I RESIDE.

10:03:18 I WISH TO KNOW WHAT TO DO.

10:03:22 I CANNOT LIVE LIKE THAT ANYMORE, AND IT WOULDN'T BE FAIR

10:03:23 TO NONE OF YOU IF IT WAS YOU.

10:03:27 YOU CAN'T BE GIVING OUT -- HOW WOULD I SAY -- PERMIT TO

10:03:30 THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT QUALIFIED.

10:03:35 NOBODY GOES BEHIND AND CHECK THEM OUT.

10:03:36 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

10:03:38 >>ORLANDO GUDES: WHEN PEOPLE ADDRESS ME.

10:03:42 MA'AM, I DON'T KNOW -- HONESTLY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

10:03:42 DO.

10:03:45 I CALLED OUR PEOPLE AND ASKED WHO IS RESPONSIBLE.

10:03:47 THEY SAY THE WORK WAS DONE BY THE COUNTY.

10:03:50 WE SENT INFORMATION OVER TO THE COUNTY TO LOOK INTO

10:03:53 YOUR SITUATION.

10:03:57 I KNOW WE SENT SOMETHING TO MR. MARLOW AND MISS MYERS

10:03:58 OFFICE.

10:04:00 I WILL CONTINUE TO GET WITH THEM TO SEE WHAT COULD BE

10:04:01 DONE.

10:04:03 I DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER FOR YOU BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW

10:04:05 WHAT THE ISSUES ARE.

10:04:08 MY PEOPLE SAY THE COUNTY DID WORK BY YOUR PROPERTY.

10:04:14 SO RIGHT NOW, I DON'T -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT LIABLE THE

10:04:15 CITY OR THE COUNTY.

10:04:18 I AM LOOKING INTO IT TO GET A DEFINITIVE ANSWER.

10:04:22 I DON'T HAVE A DEFINITIVE ANSWER UNTIL SOMEONE CAN GIVE

10:04:23 ME MORE INFORMATION.

10:04:27 >> I DIDN'T CALL YOU BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND YOU ASSISTED

10:04:32 -- I WANTED TO GIVE YOU SOME TIME AND THE NEW PERSON TO

10:04:36 MOVE IN, YOU KNOW, TO TAKE THE SPOT.

10:04:37 BUT THAT IS BESIDES THE POINT.

10:04:39 IT HAS BEEN 18 YEARS.

10:04:44 AND HONESTLY, I KNOW EVERYBODY IN THE -- BASICALLY I

10:04:44 HAVE THEIR CARD.

10:04:45 I SPOKE TO THEM.

10:04:47 THEY GIVE ME THE RUN AROUND.

10:04:52 AND YOU CAN SEE WHEN YOU CROSS THE STREET WHERE THE

10:05:01 WATER FROM THE NORTH SIDE TRANSFER INTO THE GROUND.

10:05:04 EVERY TIME A CAR PASSES, I AM THE ONLY ONE ON THAT

10:05:07 STREET THAT HAS THAT TOO.

10:05:10 DISTURBING -- NOT ONLY DISTURBING MY HOME FROM THE

10:05:13 WATER AND ALSO THEY DONE SOME WORK WHERE THERE IS TWO

10:05:16 -- TWO FIRE HYDRANTS.

10:05:17 THE WHOLE ALLEY IS FLOODED.

10:05:22 THEY DID SOME WORK FOR THE SEWER LINE.

10:05:24 THE WHOLE ALLEY IS FLOODED.

10:05:27 AND PEOPLE DON'T RECOGNIZE THAT BECAUSE I AM THE KIND

10:05:39 OF PERSON WHO IS VERY MORE OR LESS OBSERVANT.

10:05:42 >>ORLANDO GUDES: FOR THE SAKE OF TIME, I WILL HAVE MY

10:05:46 PEOPLE -- GUARANTEE YOU WILL SEE MY FAITH AND I WILL

10:05:48 RESPOND TO YOUR HOME TO SEE -- I WILL ACTUALLY VISIT TO

10:05:50 SEE WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ABOUT.

10:05:54 OKAY, MA'AM.

10:05:54 >> YES, SIR.

10:05:57 WHAT TIME I DO EXPECT TO YOU COME OR --

10:06:00 >>ORLANDO GUDES: I KNOW I HAVE IT -- BUT GIVE LISA --

10:06:03 I WILL BE THERE BY THIS WEEKEND.

10:06:04 >> I LOOK FORWARD TO SEE YOU.

10:06:07 DON'T JUST POP UP, GIVE ME CALL.

10:06:09 >>ORLANDO GUDES: I WILL GIVE YOU A CALL.

10:06:12 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

10:06:13 NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE.

10:06:15 PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME.

10:06:17 DO WE HAVE ANYBODY REGISTERED?

10:06:21 >> HEY, GOOD MORNING, ANY NAME IS STEPHANIE POYNOR.

10:06:24 YOU KNOW TECHNOLOGY HAS KICKED MY BUTT THIS MORNING.

10:06:26 SO MY SPEECH WENT BYE-BYE.

10:06:30 CAN WE GET THIS ON THE OVERHEAD, PLEASE?

10:06:34 I WANT TO TALK TODAY -- YOUR CHARTER REVIEW IS 23RD.

10:06:36 THIS REALLY ISN'T ABOUT THIS CITY COUNCIL.

10:06:39 IT IS NOT ABOUT ANYBODY THAT IS SITTING UP ON THIS DAIS

10:06:40 RIGHT NOW.

10:06:44 LAST MONTH, WE HAD 23 CANDIDATES FOR CITY COUNCIL.

10:06:47 THE LAST TIME WE HAD A VACANCY WE HAD 100 CANDIDATES

10:06:51 FOR CITY COUNCIL.

10:06:54 CITY COUNCIL NEEDS ADDITIONAL LEGAL STAFF.

10:06:56 THEY SHOULD BE IN CHARGE OF THE CRA MANAGER.

10:07:00 RIGHT NOW ON THE ORG CHART, SHE REPORTS TO THE MAYOR

10:07:01 AND THE CHIEF OF STAFF.

10:07:04 I DON'T BELIEVE THIS DILUTES HER POWER.

10:07:07 I BELIEVE IT GIVES YOU GUYS MORE POWER TO GET THINGS

10:07:11 DONE WITH THE CRA AND THEY SHOULD REPORT DIRECTLY TO

10:07:11 YOU.

10:07:15 THIS DOES NOT -- WHAT I AM ASKING FOR TODAY DOES NOT

10:07:18 DILUTE THE BRANCHES OF OUR CITY.

10:07:25 ONLY GIVES YOU GUYS MORE POWER TO DO A GREAT JOB.

10:07:28 IT GIVES THE CITY TO HAVE A OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE REALLY

10:07:30 GREAT CANDIDATES.

10:07:32 IF YOU LOOK AT THIS POWERPOINT.

10:07:34 OUR POPULATION WAS 300,000 PEOPLE.

10:07:37 NOW IT HAS GOT TO BE OVER 400,000.

10:07:38 THESE ARE 20/20 FIGURES.

10:07:39 OKAY.

10:07:44 SO WE HAVE GOT A 33% INCREASE IN POPULATION.

10:07:52 OUR BUDGET HAS WENT FROM $480 MILLION TO 1800 MILLION A

10:07:53 270% INCREASE.

10:07:57 NOW YOU THINK YOU GUYS ARE DOING BUSINESS AND DRIVING

10:08:01 YOUR 2000 TOYOTA CAMRY AND STILL GETTING ALONG BECAUSE

10:08:04 TOYOTAS ARE AWESOME, BUT I THINK IT IS TIME TO TRADE UP

10:08:05 A LITTLE BIT.

10:08:08 I THINK IT IS TIME FOR CITY COUNCIL TO BE GIVEN MORE

10:08:09 LEGAL STAFF.

10:08:11 I THINK IT IS TIME FOR CITY COUNCIL TO HAVE THE -- YOU

10:08:14 GUYS ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE SOME KIND OF ECONOMIC PERSON.

10:08:17 BY CHARTER -- IT IS IN THE CHARTER YOU SHOULD ALREADY

10:08:20 HAVE THEM BUT YOU ONLY HAVE EIGHT EMPLOYEES NOW.

10:08:23 AND THAT INCLUDES YOUR SEVEN STAFF MEMBERS.

10:08:26 THE BOTTOM LINE IS, IN ORDER TO -- WHY ARE YOU GUYS

10:08:30 EXPECTED TO CONTINUE DOING BUSINESS THE SAME WAY WE DID

10:08:35 22 YEARS AGO WITH THE SAME CAR.

10:08:37 IT IS TIME TO TRADE UP.

10:08:42 AND I WOULD -- I WOULD ASK YOU TO MAKE A MOTION TODAY

10:08:47 TO SEE THE FEASIBILITY OF THESE KIND OF EXPANSIONS TO

10:08:49 MAKE THIS A FULL-TIME POSITION.

10:08:54 I WANT MY CITY COUNCILMAN TO PAY THEIR HOUSE PAYMENT

10:08:57 WHEN THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE CITY.

10:09:02 EVERY SINGLE PERSON THERE, IF YOUR ONLY JOB WAS A CITY

10:09:06 COUNCILMAN YOU QUALIFY FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING IF YOU

10:09:07 ARE A FAMILY OF THREE.

10:09:09 THAT IS RIDICULOUS.

10:09:11 ABSURD.

10:09:14 WE SPEND 16 HOURS SOMETIMES HERE ON THURSDAYS.

10:09:15 IT IS RIDICULOUS.

10:09:18 THE ADMINISTRATION NEEDS TO LOOK AT THIS.

10:09:19 NOT JUST CITY COUNCIL.

10:09:21 CAN I HAVE 30 SECONDS, PLEASE.

10:09:24 I WOULD LIKE -- I WANT TO YOU LOOK AT THIS POWERPOINT.

10:09:28 I CAN ANALYZE THE TOP ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF MEMBERS IN

10:09:29 THIS CITY.

10:09:32 I TOOK THEM ALL AND AVERAGED THEM OUT.

10:09:37 THEY MAKE OFFER AVERAGE $149,000 A YEAR.

10:09:39 IF YOU CUT THAT IN HALF BECAUSE WE ARE JUST TALKING

10:09:42 ABOUT YOU GUYS ARE CURRENTLY PART-TIME, YOU SHOULD BE

10:09:45 PAID $74,943 A YEAR.

10:09:49 SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS, YOU GUYS ARE BELOW THE BELOW,

10:09:52 AND YOU GUYS ARE WORKING YOUR BUTTS OFF FOR THE CITY.

10:09:55 AND IT DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FROM ANYBODY ANYWHERE OUTSIDE

10:09:56 OF THIS.

10:10:00 IT JUST GIVES US A SOLID FOUNDATION.

10:10:03 AND NOBODY GOING TO WANT TO RUN FOR YOUR SEATS IF THEY

10:10:05 CAN'T PAY THEIR HOUSE PAYMENTS WHILE THEY ARE WORKING

10:10:06 FOR OUR CITY.

10:10:08 WE HAVE GOT TO COME TO REALITY.

10:10:11 22 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH OF DOING THE SAME THING OVER

10:10:12 AND OVER AGAIN.

10:10:15 DON'T THEY CALL THAT INSANITY?

10:10:16 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

10:10:16 >> THANK YOU.

10:10:18 PLEASE MAKE A MOTION TODAY.

10:10:23 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ANYBODY ELSE FOR PUBLIC COMMENT?

10:10:25 ALL RIGHT, NO ONE REGISTERED.

10:10:27 IS THAT CORRECT, DANIELLE?

10:10:30 >>CLERK: NOT REGISTERED TO SPEAK BUT SOMEBODY ON THE

10:10:31 LINE.

10:10:36 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ALL RIGHT, WE WILL BEGIN WITH THE

10:10:38 PARKS AND RECREATION MASTER PLAN.

10:10:41 >>LUIS VIERA: MR. CHAIR, IF I MAY.

10:10:42 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, SIR.

10:10:45 >>LUIS VIERA: ITEM NUMBER 5, I KNOW WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO

10:10:47 ARE SPEAKING, ETC.

10:10:51 I THINK WE CAN GET IT IN BEFORE LUNCH, BEFORE 12:00.

10:10:54 BUT JUST IF AT ALL POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF

10:10:55 PEOPLE.

10:10:59 MR. BARTON, MISS BROWN, MR. JOHNSON AND OTHERS.

10:11:00 I THINK WE CAN GET IT IN.

10:11:01 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: I THINK SO.

10:11:03 IF NOT, WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT.

10:11:06 ITEM NUMBER 2.

10:11:07 SHERISHA HILLS.

10:11:09 >>SHERISHA HILLS: GOOD MORNING, COUNCIL.

10:11:12 SHERISHA HILLS, DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND REC.

10:11:17 HERE TO PRESENT JOE WEBB WITH AECOM TO FIND THE

10:11:19 FINDINGS TO DATE WITH OUR MASTER PLAN.

10:11:21 PEOPLE ARE REQUESTING WHETHER THIS IS THEIR FINAL

10:11:22 PRODUCT.

10:11:22 IT IS NOT.

10:11:24 THEIR FINDINGS TO DATE.

10:11:28 >> THANK YOU, SHERISHA AND THANK YOU, COUNCILMEMBERS.

10:11:33 MY NAME IS JOE WEBB, AND i'M REPRESENTING AECOM.

10:11:37 I'M HERE WITH GRAVE OUR COMPANY ALSO.

10:11:39 GREAT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT PARKS AND RECREATION.

10:11:42 WE HAVE A PRESENTATION, IF YOU COULD PLEASE CALL THAT

10:11:42 UP.

10:11:45 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THERE IT IS.

10:11:47 >> CITY COUNCIL REVIEWED MASTER PLAN.

10:11:50 SOMETHING WE ARE VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT.

10:11:54 SHERISHA AND HER STAFF ARE FANTASTIC PARTNERS IN THIS

10:11:55 PROCESS.

10:12:00 MYSELF AND OUR STAFF, I RUN A STUDIO THAT IS DIRECTOR

10:12:01 OF PARKS PLANNING.

10:12:03 AND IT HAS BEEN MY LIFE.

10:12:07 IT IS A PASSION, HOPEFULLY YOU SHARE.

10:12:09 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:12:13 OUR AGENDA VERY SIMPLY -- I KNOW IT IS AN -- OBLIGATED

10:12:16 AS A 15-MINUTE MEETING AND TRY TO BE RESPECTFUL OF

10:12:19 THAT, BUT A BRIEF PROJECT OVERVIEW.

10:12:22 A SYSTEM INVENTORY AND ANALYSIS.

10:12:24 OUR FINDINGS FROM THAT.

10:12:26 COMMUNITY NEEDS AND PRIORITIES.

10:12:30 AND THEN KIND OF SUMMARY AND NEXT STEPS AND HOPEFULLY

10:12:35 QUESTIONS AND EVEN BETTER ANSWERS.

10:12:37 NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

10:12:42 OUR PROJECT AND -- PROCESS AND PROJECT IN GENERAL, FOUR

10:12:45 STEPS: LEARNING, EXPLORING, ENVISIONING AND

10:12:46 IMPLEMENTING.

10:12:50 WE REALLY COMPLETED THE FIRST TWO STEPS THAT WE CALL

10:12:52 LEARNING AND EXPLORING.

10:12:54 THE LEARNING PART IS US DOING OUR HOMEWORK.

10:12:56 WE HAVE DONE RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS.

10:12:58 WE VISITED ALL THE PARKS.

10:13:01 ALL OF THE SERVICE AND ALL THIS BACKGROUND RESEARCH.

10:13:04 AND REALLY KIND OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS

10:13:08 PROCESS IS AN EXTENSIVE PUBLIC OUTREACH PROCESS WHICH

10:13:12 IS THE EXPLORING PART.

10:13:13 I'LL GET INTO THAT FURTHER.

10:13:16 REALLY HERE TODAY TO CHECK IN WITH ALL OF YOU.

10:13:17 TELL US WHAT WE LEARNED.

10:13:18 WHAT WE SAW.

10:13:25 WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE PUBLIC AND THEN KIND OF A KIND

10:13:28 OF GO FORWARD.

10:13:29 NEXT SLIDE.

10:13:34 SO, IN GENERAL WE GO OUT AND VISITED EVERY SINGLE

10:13:34 PARK.

10:13:37 AND TWA A GREAT PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY STAFF,

10:13:40 WORKING TOGETHER TO GO TO EVERY ONE AND EVALUATE EVERY

10:13:46 FACILITY WE USE A FORMAT DEVELOPED INITIALLY MODIFIED

10:13:49 FOR US BY THE PROJECT OF PUBLIC SPACES TO KIND OF

10:13:53 EVALUATE PARK SPACES AND REALLY GOING TO EVERY SINGLE

10:13:57 PARK THAT IS -- THERE IS A LOT TO BE SEEN OUT HERE.

10:14:00 WE MAY EACH VISIT SOME BUT 181 PARKS.

10:14:08 A BIG SYSTEM DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION IS REALLY GOOD.

10:14:08 CONDITION.

10:14:11 AND THIS IS WHERE IT GETS A LITTLE HARDER BECAUSE THERE

10:14:12 ARE A LOT OF FACILITIES OUT THERE.

10:14:14 THEY ARE WELL MAINTAINED.

10:14:17 LET'S MAKE A CLEAR DISTINCTION.

10:14:20 AT THE MOMENT THEY ARE TAKEN CARE OF, BUT REALLY, THE

10:14:23 BUILT FACILITIES ARE STARTING TO GET PAST THEIR LIFE

10:14:26 CYCLE.

10:14:29 WE ARE STRETCHING THINGS BEYOND PLAYGROUNDS AND PARKING

10:14:31 LOTS AND OTHER THINGS.

10:14:33 CONDITION EFFECTIVENESS.

10:14:36 AGAIN, IN OUR ESTIMATION, GOING OUT AND EVALUATING

10:14:44 THEM, MAYBE NOT EXACTLY MEETING THE NEEDS OR THE

10:14:46 RELEVANT NEEDS OF THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES AROUND

10:14:46 THEM.

10:14:50 MUCH THAT COULD BE SEEB IN ACCESS OF LINKAGES TO THE

10:14:51 PARK.

10:14:54 AND REALLY OUR FOCUS IS TO CONNECT THE PARKS TO THE

10:14:56 NEIGHBORHOOD AROUND THEM.

10:15:00 AND THEN SUSTAINABILITY AND RESILIENCY WHICH IS

10:15:02 SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT AND I THINK TAMPA HAS DONE

10:15:06 AMAZING THINGS AND CURRENTLY DOING AMAZING THINGS TODAY

10:15:09 AND WHEN MANY OF THE PARKS WERE DEVELOPED 30 YEARS AGO,

10:15:13 IT WASN'T A DRIVING IN THE DESIGN PROCESS.

10:15:16 JUST KIND OF AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT WE SAW IN THE PARK

10:15:18 SYSTEM.

10:15:20 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:15:22 THE PARKS ARE GOOD.

10:15:24 YOU KNOW, SOME ARE MUCH BETTER.

10:15:25 YOU CERTAINLY.

10:15:30 WHAT WE SAW ALSO WAS A DISPARITY BETWEEN THE BIG

10:15:34 DOWNTOWN KIND OF HIGH-PROFILE PARKS AND MAYBE A LESSER

10:15:38 SO IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE NATURAL PARKS.

10:15:40 THAT IS NOT A BIG SURPRISE.

10:15:41 WE SEE THAT ELSEWHERE.

10:15:46 WHERE -- FROM 2008 ECONOMIC DOWNTURN AND OTHERS AND

10:15:49 MONEY WAS CRAMPED AND YOU PUT MORE INTO KIND OF THE

10:15:53 HIGHEST VISIBILITY AREAS, THE NEIGHBORHOOD PARKS IN THE

10:16:01 SMALLER AREAS AND PARTICULARLY THE NATURAL AREAS I

10:16:06 THINK CONVALESCENT IMPROVEMENTS THAN THE OTHERS.

10:16:07 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:16:11 THE MAP IS OUR EVALUATION OF A TEN-MINUTE WALK TO ANY

10:16:15 MEANINGFUL PARKS AND OVERSPACE AND YOU TAKE OUT THE

10:16:17 AIRPORT AND THE AIR FORCE BASE, YOU CAN SEE IT IS A

10:16:20 PRETTY GOOD DISTRIBUTION.

10:16:20 THAT IS FORTUNATE.

10:16:22 THAT IS EXTREMELY FORTUNATE.

10:16:26 MAKING THAT UP CAN BE A REALLY HARD THING TO DO.

10:16:30 OUR -- THE ACREAGE FOR THE CITY IS VERY COMPARABLE.

10:16:33 PROBABLY BETTER THAN AVERAGE FOR THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

10:16:35 IT IS A VERY BROAD RANGE.

10:16:36 BUT A GOOD NUMBER.

10:16:39 ACCESS WILL PROBABLY BE THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY THAT WE

10:16:42 WILL LOOK AT IN THE FUTURE IS HOW TO IMPROVE THAT IN

10:16:45 THOSE AREAS WHERE THERE ARE GAPS IN SERVICE, WHAT WE

10:16:50 CAN TO DO PROVIDE THOSE MEANINGFUL OPEN SPACES IN AREAS

10:16:53 THAT DON'T CURRENTLY HAVE SO.

10:16:55 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:16:56 RECREATION PROGRAMS.

10:16:59 WE DID A THURSDAY LOW EVALUATION OF THOSE.

10:17:03 WORKING, AGAIN, HAND IN HAND WITH STAFF AND A SUB

10:17:05 CONSULTANT TO US THAT REALLY LOOKED AT IT.

10:17:09 BUT, AGAIN, A LITTLE BIT DIFFICULT IN THAT IT WAS

10:17:14 DURING THE TIME OF COVID.

10:17:15 PREPARED BEFORE AND WATCHED TRENDS.

10:17:18 DEFINITELY TRENDS GOING ON AND THE DEPARTMENT DOES AN

10:17:23 EXCELLENT JOB IN PROGRAMS AND REALLY TURNED OUT TO BE A

10:17:26 VERY POSITIVE THING.

10:17:29 YOU WILL SEE LATER 1,000 SPECIAL EVENTS THROUGH THE

10:17:31 COURSE OF THE YEAR AND THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS IN OUR

10:17:34 INDUSTRY THAT A DEPARTMENT CAN DO THAT AND THE NUMBER

10:17:36 OF PEOPLE COMMITTED.

10:17:43 BUT, YOU KNOW ABOVE AVERAGE RANGE OF PROGRAMS.

10:17:45 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:17:48 SOMETHING ENCOURAGING TO ME FROM A POSITIVE STANDPOINT.

10:17:51 SURVEY OF ALL OF THE STAFF WITHIN THE PARKS DEPARTMENT.

10:17:56 AND WHEN YOU ASK CAN WE GET ANYTHING WE NEED TO DO OUR

10:17:57 JOB.

10:18:00 WE ARE IN A GOOD PROCESS OF DOING OUR WORK.

10:18:02 I CAN IMPROVE OUR WORK PROCESS WHEN NECESSARY.

10:18:06 THOSE NUMBERS ARE UP AT 75, 80, 85.

10:18:08 THAT IS INCREDIBLY HIGH.

10:18:13 THAT IS A GREAT TESTAMENT THAT YOU HAVE AN EMPOWERED

10:18:14 WORK FORCE.

10:18:17 COMMITTED TO THE MISSION AND VISION OF THE DEPARTMENT.

10:18:19 THERE ARE SOME THINGS WHERE -- LIKE THE VEHICLES.

10:18:28 55% OF THE VEHICLES ARE PASSED THEIR TIME.

10:18:32 AND WITH VEHICLE BREAKDOWNS AND OTHER THINGS.

10:18:34 A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS THAT WE LEARNED.

10:18:37 THESE ARE SOME OF THE STRUCTURAL THINGS THAT ARE VERY

10:18:41 DIFFICULT, AND I AM GLAD THEY DON'T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT

10:18:48 BECAUSE IT CAN BE POSSIBLE AND SEEING TODAY THAT THERE

10:18:49 ARE POSITIVE IN THAT REGARD.

10:18:53 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:18:56 AND THE ALL-IMPORTANT PART.

10:18:59 COMMUNITY NEEDS ASSESSMENT.

10:19:00 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:19:04 OUR WHOLE SYSTEM OF PARKS AND RECREATION, PARKS ARE

10:19:05 PEOPLE AND PLACES.

10:19:08 OUR PLANNING PROCESS IS TRULY DRIVEN BY EXPRESSED

10:19:12 COMMUNITY NEEDS, WANTS, AND PRIORITIES.

10:19:15 WE THINK A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT INTO TRYING TO REACH

10:19:20 OUT AND REALLY INCLUDE EVERYBODY EQUITABLY IN THE

10:19:22 PROCESS.

10:19:28 OUR BRAND FOR THIS PROJECT WAS "YOUR VISION FOR OUR

10:19:29 TOMORROW."

10:19:32 WE TOOK THAT TO HEART AND IT IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE GOING

10:19:34 OUT AND HEARING FROM EVERYONE.

10:19:37 WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO WHAT THEY CALL A MIXED METHOD

10:19:41 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY.

10:19:44 LOTS OF METHODS THAT CONSISTENTLY COME UP TO THE TOP.

10:19:46 NOT JUST WANTS.

10:19:47 NOT JUST NEEDS.

10:19:48 BUT PRIORITIES OF PEOPLE.

10:19:51 IT IS EASY TO EXPRESS A LOT OF WANTS, BUT YOU HAVE TO

10:19:55 GO THROUGH A PROCESS TO GET THOSE TO WHAT WOULD YOU DO

10:19:56 FIRST.

10:19:57 WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT.

10:20:00 I WILL GO ON WITH THAT.

10:20:02 OUR -- YES.

10:20:04 YOU WERE RIGHT ON IT.

10:20:05 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:20:08 ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID DURING THE COVID PERIOD WE HAD

10:20:12 AN EXTENSIVE OUTREACH IN WHAT WE CALL VIRTUAL ROOMS AND

10:20:14 VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS.

10:20:16 THESE WERE AMAZINGLY POPULAR.

10:20:20 WHEN YOU SEE 36,000 PEOPLE PARTICIPATED IN THAT

10:20:24 PROCESS, IT'S INDICATIVE.

10:20:27 WE ARE DOING THIS OR HAVE DONE THIS IN MANY OTHER

10:20:29 LARGER URBAN AREAS.

10:20:34 PEOPLE ARE VERY USED TO WHAT I WOULD SAY ON DEMAND

10:20:34 INVOLVEMENT.

10:20:37 THEY LOVE THE FACT THEY CAN GO TO THEIR PHONES.

10:20:38 SEE ALL THE INFORMATION.

10:20:40 MOVE AROUND THE ROOM.

10:20:43 AND ACTUALLY HAVE AN ACTIVE INPUT INTO THINGS.

10:20:46 WE ALSO HAVE VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSES.

10:20:52 AND A WHOLE VARIETY OF VIRTUAL MEETINGS ON TOP OF THE

10:20:53 OTHER MEETINGS THAT WE HAVE.

10:21:01 BUT WHEN YOU SEE WHAT PEOPLE SAID, AND THIS MAY BE PART

10:21:02 OF THE PROCESS HERE.

10:21:05 WALKING, WILDLIFE, SWIMMING FOR FUN, GOING TO THE

10:21:08 BEACH, EVENTS AND FESTIVALS, YOU KNOW.

10:21:18 IT IS INDICATIVE OF ALMOST A -- A VERY CLEAR TREND IN

10:21:19 PARKS AND RECREATION.

10:21:25 IF YOU DON'T WORK IN OUR WORLD THAT BRAD AND SHERISHA

10:21:27 AND I WORK ON.

10:21:28 PARKS CHANGE A LOT.

10:21:32 MY PARENT, THEIR PARENTS, MY CHILDREN AND

10:21:34 GRANDCHILDREN'S IS A LOT DIFFERENT.

10:21:37 WE ARE CHANGING AS AN AMERICAN LIFESTYLE, AMERICAN

10:21:41 PEOPLE, HOW WE RECREATE.

10:21:43 AND WE NEED TO BE RESPONSIVE TO THAT.

10:21:44 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:21:46 WE DID A SERIES OF FOCUS GROUP.

10:21:48 ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT GROUPS.

10:21:51 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:21:57 AND AGAIN, WE STARTED TO HEAR THE SAME THINGS,

10:21:59 RESILIENT DESIGN.

10:22:01 STRENGTHEN PARK CONNECTIVITY.

10:22:04 I WON'T READ EACH OF THESE OFF TO YOU, BUT YOU KNOW,

10:22:09 TRYING TO SECURE MORE FUNDING TRYING TO CREATE A HYBRID

10:22:11 OF IN-PERSON AND VIRTUAL.

10:22:15 I THINK THAT IS THE KIND OF TREND IN RECREATION BOTH

10:22:17 PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RIGHT NOW.

10:22:24 A LOT OF VERY POSITIVE COMMENTS AND ENCOURAGING THINGS.

10:22:26 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:22:27 STAKEHOLDER INTERVIEWS.

10:22:28 THAT INCLUDES MANY OF YOU.

10:22:32 AND ALSO LEADERS ACROSS THE CITY AND WE HEAR IMPROVE

10:22:33 PARK CONNECTIVITY.

10:22:37 THAT IS WHAT WE ARE HEARING.

10:22:42 AND IF YOU ESTABLISH A CITY'S IDENTITY AND COHESIVE

10:22:42 SYSTEM.

10:22:50 AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT AND DESIGNER, TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL

10:22:53 PARKS AND THERE A CONSISTENT BRAND AND QUALITY ACROSS

10:22:56 ALL THAT MAYBE CAN BE ENHANCED A LITTLE.

10:23:00 AND I I THINK I HEAR -- MAYBE EVERYWHERE IN ALL OF THE

10:23:04 THINGS, PRIORITIZE FIXING WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE REALLY

10:23:06 BUILDING A LOT MORE NEW.

10:23:09 AND I THINK THAT IS A CLEAR DIRECTION FOR US.

10:23:11 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:23:16 AGAIN, ONE OF OUR MOST POWERFUL OUTREACH TOOLS IS

10:23:19 THE STATISTICALLY VALID SURVEY AND I WILL SPEND A

10:23:20 LITTLE TIME EXPLAINS HERE.

10:23:23 WHAT WE CALL RANDOM STRATIFIED.

10:23:29 MEANING THAT THE.

10:23:31 WE DO IT IN A FASHION THAT THE WATER TAKEN FROM THE

10:23:34 POOL IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ENTIRE POOL.

10:23:37 A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT GO GOES INTO THAT REACHING OUT

10:23:41 WHAT IS A RANDOM GROUP AND MAKING SURE WE HAVE CLEARLY

10:23:45 DEMOGRAPHIC REPRESENTED GROUP.

10:23:48 LIKE MOST GREAT CITIES, TAMPA IS NOT ONE PLACE.

10:23:51 SOMETIMES THEY SAY I CAN HAVE A SURVEY FOR THE WHOLE

10:23:53 CITY THAT IS ROOT FOR THE CITY AND WRONG FOR EVERY

10:23:54 NEIGHBORHOOD IN IT.

10:23:58 SO WE REALLY BROKE THE CITY DOWN INTO DISTINCT REGIONS

10:24:05 AND SECTIONS SO WE COULD UNDERSTAND, LET'S SAY, THE,

10:24:07 THE MORE SPECIFIC NEEDS AND PRIORITIES OF THE SOUTH

10:24:08 VERSUS THE NORTH.

10:24:10 THE EAST VERSUS THE WEST.

10:24:12 OR SELECTIVE NEIGHBORHOODS IN EACH.

10:24:16 SO WHEN WE GET DOWN TO DETAIL, PLANS AND DESIGN, WE

10:24:20 WILL KNOW AS AN OVERALL, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT DID

10:24:22 THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIVING NEARBY.

10:24:24 WE CAN ACTUALLY TAKE THAT DATA TO.

10:24:27 YOU KNOW, PEOPLE THAT LIVE WITHIN ONE MILE.

10:24:29 PEOPLE THAT LIVE WITHIN A QUARTER MILE.

10:24:33 SO A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT IN TRYING TO UNDERSTAND, NOT

10:24:36 JUST, YOU KNOW, GENERAL IDEAS, BUT VERY SPECIFICALLY

10:24:40 THE PEOPLE THAT WE WOULD SERVE AND WHAT ARE THEIR

10:24:42 PRIORITIES.

10:24:44 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:24:48 PART OF THAT STATISTICAL SURVEY IS ALSO A WHOLE SERIES

10:24:52 OF QUESTIONS OF TRYING TO TEASE OUT THAT IDEA THAT IT

10:24:54 IS NOT JUST ABOUT A WISH LIST OF WANTS.

10:24:58 YOU KNOW, WANTS ARE IMPORTANT, BUT WHAT WE -- WE TRY TO

10:25:03 ASK QUESTIONS THAT ARE, AS WE SAY, IMPORTANT AND UNMET

10:25:04 NEED.

10:25:06 WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU ONLY COULD DO ONE THING.

10:25:08 WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT.

10:25:11 WHAT -- THOSE ARE SIMILAR QUESTIONS, RIGHT, BUT HOW

10:25:13 PEOPLE RESPOND AND HOW IT IS.

10:25:16 WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO US IS WHAT WE LOOKED FOR.

10:25:20 THOSE THINGS IN THE HORIZONTAL SCALE, THE HIGHEST

10:25:22 IMPORTANCE WILL BE TO THE RIGHT.

10:25:26 AND THE HIGHEST UNMET NEED WOULD BE TO THE TOMORROW.

10:25:30 SO IF YOU LOOK THE UPPER RIGHT, IT WILL BE THOSE

10:25:34 THINGS THAT YOUR COMMUNITY.

10:25:37 OUR COMMUNITY HAVE SPECIFICALLY SAID ARE BOTH VERY

10:25:40 IMPORTANT TO THEM AND A VERY HIGH, UNMET NEED.

10:25:45 SO THAT IS HOW WE TRY TO PRIORITIZE TO SAYS IT NOT JUST

10:25:49 THINGS, BUT IT IS -- IT IS THINGS THAT PEOPLE HAVE

10:25:52 REALLY IDENTIFIED IN THOSE TWO CATEGORIES.

10:25:55 YOU LOOK AT TRAILS, SIDEWALKS, SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD

10:25:56 PARKS.

10:26:02 NATURAL PARKS AND PRESERVES, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, SOME ARE

10:26:05 CONSISTENCIES AND FOR FACILITIES AND JUST BECAUSE

10:26:08 PEOPLE RESPOND DIFFERENTLY, WE ALSO DID IT -- NEXT

10:26:11 SLIDE, PLEASE -- AS ACTIVITIES.

10:26:14 AND YOU CAN SEE, AGAIN, IT DOES KIND OF TALK TO WHAT

10:26:18 THIS IS WHAT PEOPLE TOLD US WERE THEIR MOST IMPORTANT

10:26:22 RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES AND THE HIGHEST UNMET NEED IN

10:26:24 THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER.

10:26:29 OUTDOOR ADVENTURES, HISTORY MUSEUMS, PERFORMING ARTS.

10:26:31 I DON'T KNOW IF THAT IS WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE EXPECTED.

10:26:35 A TREND IN MY 30 YEARS OF DOING THIS, I HAVE SEEN A

10:26:38 REAL TREND TOWARD MORE OF WHAT I CALL AT-WILL

10:26:40 RECREATION.

10:26:45 SO THIS IS WHAT WOE HEARD THROUGH THIS PHYSICAL SURVEY.

10:26:46 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:26:49 KIND OF A SUMMARY OF THE THINGS IN BOTH FACILITIES AND

10:26:51 ACTIVITIES.

10:26:53 AND NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:26:57 YOU KNOW, HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS.

10:26:59 ONE OF THE HARDEST PART OF ME TO GO THROUGH ALL THIS

10:27:02 ENERGY AND ALL THIS WORK IS WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IS

10:27:03 CONSISTENCY.

10:27:06 IT PROVES THAT ALL OF OUR DIFFERENT METHODS ARE LEADING

10:27:13 TO WHAT IS, YOU KNOW, AN HONEST ANSWER AND WE GOT A LOT

10:27:16 OF CONVERGENCE AT THE TOP OF WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE

10:27:16 COMMUNITY.

10:27:16 WHAT WE SAW.

10:27:18 WHAT WE RESEARCHED.

10:27:20 WHAT WE HEARD IN FOCUS GROUPS.

10:27:23 WHAT WE HEARD IN COMMUNITY MEETINGS.

10:27:27 IF GIVES US A CLEAR DIRECTION OR CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF

10:27:30 WHAT WE ARE BEING TOLD THE COMMUNITY WANTS NOT JUST

10:27:34 CITY WIDE, BUT REALLY BOILING DOWN TO COMMUNITY AND

10:27:39 NEIGHBORHOOD BY NEIGHBORHOOD.

10:27:41 SO, NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

10:27:44 KIND OF A SUMMARY OF ALL OF THIS.

10:27:46 IF YOU COULD, NEXT SLIDE.

10:27:48 YOU KNOW, THE CITY IS CHANGING.

10:27:51 AND AS I ALLUDED TO, NOT ONLY IS THE CITY CHANGING AND

10:27:57 GROWING AND DIVERSIFYING AND DENSEFYING, URBANIZING.

10:28:00 AMERICAN LIFESTYLES ARE CHANGING.

10:28:01 RECREATION PATTERNS ARE CHANGING.

10:28:06 SO UNDERSTANDING THAT THE DYNAMICS WHEN WE ARE LOOKING

10:28:09 AT FUTURE PROGRAMS AND ACCEPT BUILT FACILITIES THAT

10:28:16 MIGHT LAST 20, 30, 50 YEARS.

10:28:19 WE ARE LOOKING OUT TO THE FUTURE TO MAKE SURE WHAT WE

10:28:22 ARE DOING IS THE BEST MIND SET FOR HOW TO, YOU KNOW,

10:28:26 BEST UTILIZE YOUR DOLLARS TO MAXIMIZE BENEFIT.

10:28:29 THE DEPARTMENT, YOU KNOW, ARE GREAT.

10:28:33 SHERISHA AND LIB SPEAKING AT CONFERENCES COMING UP.

10:28:34 A THOUSAND PROGRAMS.

10:28:35 I QUESTIONED THAT.

10:28:36 AND THEY PROVED IT TO ME.

10:28:38 AND THAT WAS AMAZING.

10:28:40 GOLD MEDAL AWARD WINNER.

10:28:47 THE BEST PARK SYSTEM IN THE COUNTRY.

10:28:48 WOW.

10:28:50 PROGRAMS AND OPERATIONS ISN'T THE PROBLEM.

10:28:54 AND IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS A PRETTY GOOD EQUITABLE

10:28:56 DISTRIBUTION OF PARKS AND WE WILL LOOK VERY MUCH AT

10:29:00 TRYING TO TARGET IN TO SOME OF THOSE GAP AREAS.

10:29:04 WE WANT EQUITABLE EVERYWHERE.

10:29:09 SOME THE PARKS FACILITIES ARE IN NEED OF RENOVATION.

10:29:11 I THINK I SPOKE WITH MANY OF YOU IN OUR DISCUSSION AN

10:29:15 NOT TOO BIGGER OF A SURPRISE.

10:29:19 AND THINGS AT THAT LIFE CYCLE.

10:29:22 HIRED IN A CONSULTANT FROM THE OUTSIDE AND OH, WOW,

10:29:23 THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG.

10:29:24 THIS IS EXACT.

10:29:26 THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS EVOLVED.

10:29:28 JUST KIND OF ERODED.

10:29:30 TAKING TIME OF WHERE THINGS ARE.

10:29:35 AND IN THE MEANTIME, THERE IS THIS SHIFT OF DEMAND AND

10:29:39 OF NEED AND TYPES OF FACILITIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY

10:29:42 BEING BUILT FOR THE FUTURE AND JUST TIME WHERE THERE

10:29:45 HAS GOT TO BE KIND OF A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH OF HOW

10:29:47 TO CATCH THINGS UP.

10:29:50 THERE IS ALSO 16 PARKS THAT, YOU KNOW, HAVE BEEN

10:29:53 PURCHASED AND AREN'T REALLY DEVELOPED THAT PROBABLY

10:29:55 SHOULD BE.

10:29:57 NEXT.

10:30:00 WHAT WE HAVE SEEN AND HEARD AND WHAT WE HEAR ACROSS THE

10:30:03 COUNTRY AND WORK ALL OVER THE COUNTRY IS THIS IDEA OF

10:30:10 MORE AT WILL RECREATION.

10:30:14 AND PEOPLE WANT TO GO OUT ON THEIR OWN VOLITION.

10:30:17 YOU THINK OF SPECIFIC STARTING TIMES AND ENDING TIMES.

10:30:20 I ASK PEOPLE, WALKING ARE BIKING, CANOEING AND

10:30:21 KAYAKING.

10:30:24 YOU MAY GO OUT SATURDAY MORNING AT 10 OR 10:15 AND

10:30:27 COULD GET DELAYED AND BE 10:30.

10:30:37 THESE STRICT SCHEDULED TIMES ARE NOT REALLY MEETING OUR

10:30:39 LIFE STYLE.

10:30:41 PEOPLE ARE FOCUSED ON HEALTH AND WELLNESS THAN STRICT

10:30:45 COMPETITION AND IT IS WHO WE ARE AND ALL ABOUT NATURE

10:30:48 AND ENJOYMENT AND SO MUCH CAN BE DONE NOW BECAUSE

10:30:50 KNOWING NOT JUST BEING IN A NATURAL AREA, BUT BEING

10:30:52 ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT.

10:30:56 I CAN PROVIDE THE INFORMATION VIRTUALLY.

10:31:00 IT CAN BE ON AN APP AND NOT IN THE BEAUTIFUL NATURAL

10:31:05 AREA BUT THE ECOSYSTEM.

10:31:10 FIXING THE FACILITIES FIRST AND ENSUING STEPS IN

10:31:12 IMPLEMENTATION AND STARTING EARLY.

10:31:14 GOING EVERY SINGLE PART.

10:31:17 EVERY SINGLE THING TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE ON

10:31:22 -- AND LASTLY DEVELOP THE PARK SYSTEM IN THE FUTURE.

10:31:25 WE CAN'T JUST THINK ABOUT WHAT IT WAS OR WHAT IT IS

10:31:26 TODAY.

10:31:31 WE HAVE TO BE REALLY THINKING ABOUT YOU KNOW THE NEXT

10:31:32 30 TO 50 YEARS.

10:31:34 SO I THINK THAT IS IT.

10:31:37 I HOPE I AM N WITHIN MY TIME HERE.

10:31:39 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN GUDES.

10:31:42 >>ORLANDO GUDES: I CAN TELL THAT SOME WORK HAS BEEN

10:31:42 PUT INTO THIS.

10:31:45 BUT I GUESS I WAS LOOKING FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE.

10:31:49 FOR ME, I AM LOOKING TO IDENTIFY.

10:31:53 I AM LOOKING TO IDENTIFY THOSE PARKS THAT NEED TO BE

10:31:54 RENOVATED.

10:31:56 THOSE PARKS THAT NEED TO BE TORN DOWN.

10:32:00 THOSE PARKS THAT NEED ACCESSIBLE ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS.

10:32:03 I AM LOOKING TO FIND OUT WHAT THE COMMUNITY WANTS FOR

10:32:04 THAT PARTICULAR PARK.

10:32:08 BECAUSE I KNOW AT TIMES, ON THE EAST SIDE, I HAVE A

10:32:10 PARK THAT IS FULL OF A COMMUNITY BUT ONE POINT ONLY

10:32:13 GIVEN 800 SQUARE FEET FOR A PARK, WHICH IS

10:32:14 UNACCEPTABLE.

10:32:17 OTHER AREAS GOT WAY, WAY MORE SQUARE FOOTAGE.

10:32:20 I AM LOOKING -- THAT IS WHAT I AM LOOKING TO FIGURE OUT

10:32:21 WHAT ARE THE REAL NEEDS.

10:32:23 WHERE ARE THEY AT.

10:32:25 WHAT IS THE COMMUNITY SAYING.

10:32:26 THIS IS GOOD, SIR.

10:32:31 BUT FOR ME, I NEED -- TO BE IDENTIFIABLE OF COMMUNITIES

10:32:34 AND WHAT THE COMMUNITY NEEDS ARE AND WHAT THEY WANT IN

10:32:36 THE COMMUNITIES AND HOW THEY BRING THEM TOGETHER TO

10:32:39 MAKE SURE ACROSS THE CITY IT IS ALL EQUITABLE.

10:32:42 THAT IS WHAT I AM LOOKING AND WANT TO SEE IN YOUR

10:32:43 REPORT.

10:32:46 AGAIN, WHAT IS THE COST FACTOR OVER A PERIOD OF TIME

10:32:47 OVER YEARS.

10:32:49 HOW DO WE GET THAT MONEY.

10:32:51 WHERE DO WE GET IT FROM.

10:32:55 AGAIN, BEING ABLE TO MAKE SURE IT IS EQUABLE ACROSS THE

10:32:57 BOARD THAT EVERYONE IS GETTING THE SAME THING.

10:32:59 THAT IS WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.

10:33:00 >> I HEAR YOU.

10:33:01 WE ARE HEADED IN THIS DIRECTION.

10:33:04 AS YOU KNOW.

10:33:05 THE LAST SLIDE.

10:33:06 OUR NEXT STEPS.

10:33:08 WE DID THIS LEARNING AND EXPLORING.

10:33:09 THE NEXT STEP IS ENVISIONING.

10:33:11 REALLY GETTING DOWN TO SPECIFICALLY EVERY IMPROVEMENT

10:33:13 TO EVERY PARK.

10:33:16 HOPEFULLY IN RESPONSE TO WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID TO US.

10:33:22 AND DEVELOPING A COMPREHENSIVE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN THAT

10:33:27 WILL BE DOWN TO A BENCH, A PLAYGROUND, A PARK AT THIS

10:33:32 TIME AND SCHEDULING THAT ALL OUT IN A DETAILED KIND OF

10:33:36 PROGRAM OF REINVESTMENT THAT I THINK WE ARE REALLY GOOD

10:33:39 AT OF DOING A CLEAR AND COMPREHENSIVE IMPLEMENTATION

10:33:40 PLAN.

10:33:43 BUT THOSE ARE OUR NEXT TWO STEPS.

10:33:44 I FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT.

10:33:47 WE FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO STEP IN HERE AND KIND OF

10:33:50 CHECK IN WITH ALL OF YOU BEFORE WE GO LAUNCHING INTO

10:33:54 OUR NEXT STEP THAT IS A PART OF OUR PROGRAM.

10:33:55 WHAT --

10:33:58 >>ORLANDO GUDES: THAT IS THE STEP I AM INTERESTED IN

10:34:00 THAT MEAT AND POTATO STEP.

10:34:03 THE KEY OF EVERYTHING, MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE

10:34:06 OPPORTUNITIES -- KIDS THAT HAVE DOWN SYNDROME.

10:34:09 THEY HAVE ALL KIND OF ACCESSORY NEEDS.

10:34:12 MAKING SURE THAT THE COMMUNITY HAVE THOSE KIND OF

10:34:14 PROGRAMS AND I THINK OUR PARKS AND RECREATION ARE

10:34:17 MOVING IN THAT DIRECTION TO DO THAT, BUT SO THE

10:34:20 COMMUNITY CAN SEE THAT EVERYBODY IS GETTING WHAT WE ARE

10:34:22 ASKING FOR, PER SE.

10:34:25 IT MAY TACK TIME BUT THE TIME FRAME TO GET THINGS DONE

10:34:29 AND WHERE ARE WE GOING TO GET THE MONEY TO DO THE JOB.

10:34:31 >> THAT IS VERY, VERY ON POINT BECAUSE OUR NEXT STEPS

10:34:32 HERE.

10:34:35 AS WE DO -- AS A CONDITION WE ARE VERY FOCUSED ON

10:34:39 IMMENTATION AND PROGRAMS OF DEVELOPMENT.

10:34:42 -- IMPLEMENTATION AND PROGRAMS OF DEVELOPMENT.

10:34:46 AND IT MAY TAKE TEN YEARS AND ACQUISITION AND OTHER

10:34:47 THINGS.

10:34:49 BUT IF YOU SCHEDULE AND LOOK AT ALL THE FUNDING SOURCES

10:34:52 AND GRANTS AND ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES AND IT IS REALLY

10:34:52 IN IT.

10:34:56 WE ARE IN -- I COMPLETED A PARKS MASTER PLAN FOR THE

10:34:56 CITY OF FT. LAUDERDALE.

10:35:01 AND TODAY WE ARE DOING A PROGRAM OF REINVESTMENT, 100

10:35:06 PARKS OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS AND IT IS GOING DOWN TO

10:35:09 EVERY SINGLE THING OF EVERY SINGLE ONE AND JUST RUN AS

10:35:09 A PROGRAM.

10:35:12 AND IT IS NOT OVERWHELMING.

10:35:17 IT'S -- WE GOT TO GET ON A PROGRAMMING IN THAT

10:35:18 DIRECTION.

10:35:20 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ALL RIGHT, COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.

10:35:22 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. CHAIRMAN.

10:35:23 THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORT.

10:35:24 IT IS VERY INTERESTING.

10:35:29 AND I TRY TO LOOK AROUND AT DIFFERENT PARKS AND WHAT

10:35:30 HAPPENS TO THEM.

10:35:33 IT IS LIKE A MERRY GO ROUNDS, I BELIEVE.

10:35:35 WHAT I MEAN BY THAT.

10:35:38 WHEN YOU HAVE A YOUNG FAMILY LIVING IN A NEIGHBORHOOD

10:35:40 AROUND THIS CERTAIN PARK, YOU WILL HAVE MORE

10:35:43 PARTICIPATION OF YOUTH THAN YOU ARE SOMETHING ELSE.

10:35:48 I HAVE SEEN PARKS THAT PEAK THAT HAVE ENORMOUS

10:35:49 PARTICIPATION IN KIDS.

10:35:52 AND THROUGH THE YEARS BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE

10:35:54 AROUND THAT PARK, THE GOOD CITIZENS, ARE NOT OF

10:35:58 CHILD-BEARING AGE, THAT PARK HAS A LOWER ATTENDANCE.

10:36:01 AND SOME OTHER PARK WILL HAVE A HIGHER ATTENDANCE AND

10:36:05 MOVES AROUND AND FLUCTUATES DEPENDING ON THE AGE FACTOR

10:36:06 AROUND THE PARK.

10:36:10 AND I AM NOT A PARK EXPERT BY NO MEANS.

10:36:12 LET ME SAY THAT FOR THE RECORD.

10:36:16 THE PARK THINK THAT PLAYED IN FOR A LONG TIME CASCADE

10:36:17 DAN PARK.

10:36:20 IT IS COMING BACK WITH MORE FACILITIES AND KIDS COMING

10:36:22 TO THE PARK, BUT FOR MANY YEARS, IT WAS JUST DOOR

10:36:24 MEANT.

10:36:29 THERE IS NOT -- THERE IS ONE SOFTBALL FIELD WHERE THE

10:36:36 CLEARWATER BOMBERS USED TO BE WAY BACK IN THE '50S.

10:36:37 THE ONLY ONE THERE.

10:36:39 THE TWO OTHER PARKS ARE GONE.

10:36:40 ALL ABOUT SOCCER.

10:36:41 THAT IS FINE.

10:36:42 I UNDERSTAND THAT.

10:36:44 BUT THAT PARK, SOONER OR LATER, BECAUSE OF THE CHANGING

10:36:47 OF YOUNGER PEOPLE MOVING IN, WILL HAVE THE FACILITIES

10:36:51 COMING BACK TO THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE AROUND THE PARK.

10:36:53 AND THAT IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO LOOK AT

10:36:54 GEOGRAPHICALLY.

10:36:58 HOW THE AGE BARRIER -- AREA AROUND THE PARK QUALIFIED

10:37:01 BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IS GOING TO TELL US WHO IS GOING

10:37:03 TO USE THE PARK MORE.

10:37:05 CERTAINLY THE PEOPLE MY AGE USE IT TO WALK.

10:37:07 AND I DON'T MEAN WITH A WALKER.

10:37:11 BUT TO WALK AND TRY TO RUN AND DO THINGS THEY USED TO

10:37:14 DO AND THINK OF THE THINGS THEY USED TO DO AND MAKE

10:37:15 BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN STILL DO THEM.

10:37:18 AND SHERISHA IS LAUGHING AT ME.

10:37:21 A CHALLENGE BETWEEN THAT YOUNG LADY AND MYSELF.

10:37:23 AND I AM GOING TO LET'S YOU KNOW WHEN THAT CHALLENGE

10:37:23 IS.

10:37:26 I GOT TO GET IN A LITTLE BIT BETTER SHAPE.

10:37:31 AND IT WILL BE 80 YEARS OLD VERSUS A YOUNG LADY.

10:37:33 AND I HATE TO TELL YOU THAT THE YOUNG LADY IS GOING TO

10:37:34 LOSE.

10:37:34 [LAUGHTER]

10:37:38 >> I THINK THERE WAS A TENNIS MATCH LIKE THAT ONCE.

10:37:40 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: WON'T BE A TENNIS MATCH.

10:37:43 BUT WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT THESE PARTS ARE -- THE

10:37:44 LIFELINE.

10:37:47 I REMEMBER GROWING UP AROUND THAT PARK.

10:37:50 AND IT WAS REALLY THE ONLY THING WE HAD.

10:37:51 AND ALL OF US WERE THERE.

10:37:55 AND IT CREATES AN UNDERSTANDING HOW LIFE IS, BECAUSE

10:37:57 YOU MEET INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE DIFFERENT.

10:38:01 AND YOU ARE A SIZE, WEIGHT AND COLOR AND EVERYTHING

10:38:04 ELSE AND YOU HAVE A BETTER TREE LINE GROWING UP AND

10:38:05 FACILITATING OF LIFE.

10:38:08 AND PARKS ARE MORE THAN JUST TO PLAY IN.

10:38:13 TEACHES YOU WHETHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT HOW TO GET ALONG

10:38:14 WITH OTHERS.

10:38:16 >> YOU STOLE MY LINE THERE.

10:38:19 BUT I GREATLY AGREE WITH WHATEVER IT IS -- EVERYTHING

10:38:21 THAT YOU JUST SAID.

10:38:23 NOT JUSTICE A PLACE TO PLAY.

10:38:27 SOCIALIZATION, CONGREGATION, MANY OF THE THINGS THAT

10:38:30 ARE AT THE HEART AND SOUL OF NEIGHBORHOODS AND

10:38:30 COMMUNITIES.

10:38:33 I WILL JOKE AGAIN BECAUSE I HAVE SIMILAR HAIRLINE AND

10:38:37 OTHER THINGS, BUT I WORKED LONG ENOUGH TO CRITICIZE MY

10:38:38 OWN WORK.

10:38:41 WHAT WE REALLY LEARNED FROM 30 YEARS AGO IS BE MORE

10:38:42 FLEXIBLE.

10:38:45 WE CAN BUILD BUILDINGS TO BE FLEXIBLE OVER PERIODS OF

10:38:46 TIME AND ADAPT.

10:38:50 DON'T BUILD SUCH SINGLE-USE FACILITIES.

10:38:55 WE CAN ADAPT EVEN PLAY FIELDS FROM -- YOU KNOW, FROM

10:39:00 ONE SPORT TO ANOTHER RELATIVELY RAPIDLY IF WE PLAN AND

10:39:07 DESIGN WELL IN ADVANCE SO THAT WE CAN ADJUST OVER TIME

10:39:09 TO VARYING NEEDS AND SOMETHING LIKE BETTER WALKING

10:39:14 TRAILS, RUNNING, BETTER HEALTH FACILITIES.

10:39:14 TRACK.

10:39:17 BETTER ACCESS TO SIMPLE THINGS.

10:39:19 THOSE WE KNOW THAT ARE THERE.

10:39:22 GET THE BASICS RIGHT AND BUILD IN WHAT WE CALL

10:39:27 MULTIGENERATIONAL, MULTIFUNCTIONAL, MULTIPERFORMANCE IS

10:39:31 THE KEY SO YOU DON'T GET YOURSELF IN A BOX THAT I BUILT

10:39:36 THREE COMMUNITY CENTERS WITH KILN ROOMS.

10:39:38 THAT PROBABLY WASN'T A GOOD IDEA AND RENOVATED.

10:39:42 BUT THE FLEXIBILITY IN BUILDINGS NOW WITH MOVABLE

10:39:46 WALLS, WITH ADAPTABILITY TO DIFFERENT USES WHERE THEY

10:39:49 ARE FUNCTIONAL FROM AFTERSCHOOL TO EVENING USE TO

10:39:53 WEEKEND PARTIES.

10:39:56 THEY ARE ALMOST TRANSFORMERS WHAT WE ARE BUILDING.

10:40:03 EVEN THE FIELDS ARE SYNTHETIC AND I CAN SET THEM UP

10:40:05 FOR.

10:40:11 AND U-6 AND U-12 AND PLAYING DIFFERENT SPORTS ON THE

10:40:12 WEEKENDS.

10:40:15 BUILD IN THAT FLEXIBILITY AND THIS ADAPTABILITY IS

10:40:16 REALLY KEY.

10:40:18 ANYWAY, GREAT COMMENTS.

10:40:20 GREAT QUESTIONS.

10:40:21 >>JOSEPH CITRO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

10:40:23 THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORT.

10:40:26 I WANT TO SAYS THERE ONE IRONY IN YOUR REPORT.

10:40:30 AND THAT IS THAT THE PUBLIC IS ASKING FOR PUBLIC

10:40:31 SWIMMING POOLS.

10:40:37 AND THE IRONY THAT THE ANGUS GUS POOL HAVEN'T DONE IT

10:40:44 AND THE BARTMELO AT MACFARLANE PARK HAS GOT

10:40:45 FILLED IN AND KNOCKED DOWN.

10:40:46 THERE IS AN IRONY.

10:40:51 I CAN'T SING THE PRAISES ENOUGH OF SHERISHA HILLS.

10:40:54 SHE HAS DONE SO MUCH WITH PARKS AND RECREATION SINCE

10:40:56 SHE HAS COME ON STAFF.

10:41:01 MISS HILLS AND MISS KAREN KRESS IN THE AUDIENCE,

10:41:05 UNDERUSED SPACES THAT IN MY OPINION WE SHOULD BE USING

10:41:08 AND THAT IS UNDER OUR INTERSTATE OR EXPRESSWAY SYSTEMS.

10:41:12 I DRIVE DOWN ADAMO DRIVE AND I SEE SPACE UNDERNEATH THE

10:41:17 CROSSTOWN THAT CAN BE USED FOR PICKLE BALL COURSE.

10:41:18 FOR BIKING TRAILS.

10:41:20 USED FOR WALKING TRAILS.

10:41:23 CAN BE USED FOR HALF-SIZED SOCCER FIELD FOR YOUTH.

10:41:28 I AM HOPING IN YOUR NEXT REPORT, YOU WILL REPORTING IS

10:41:31 TO UNDERNEATH THE HIGHWAYS.

10:41:32 275.

10:41:34 WORKING ON A BIKE PARK THERE.

10:41:36 AGAIN ADAMO DRIVE.

10:41:44 THAT IS AN AREA, IN MY OPINION, YOU COULD HAVE MORE

10:41:46 PARKS IN THE YBOR CITY AREA.

10:41:49 I AM HOPING IN YOUR NEXT REPORT THAT THOSE UNDERUSED

10:41:54 SPACES CAN BE USED MORE EFFICIENTLY AND WE CAN WORK

10:41:56 WITH THE EXPRESSWAY AUTHORITY OF THAT.

10:41:59 >> I AM ACTIVELY INVOLVED WITH MIAMI AND OTHER PROJECTS

10:42:01 THAT HAVE GONE ON.

10:42:05 IT TAKES SOME DOING TO BREAK THROUGH THAT MINDSET, THIS

10:42:08 IS FOR RAIL OR THIS IS FOR A HIGHWAY.

10:42:11 AND YOU CAN'T TUESDAY FOR ANYTHING ELSE AND IT HAS GOT

10:42:12 TO BE KNOWN.

10:42:16 IN AN URBAN AREA, YOU GOT TO LOOK AT EVERY SINGLE

10:42:17 SPACE.

10:42:21 IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT SOME CITIES, ATLANTA AND NEW YORK

10:42:24 AND OTHERS ARE DOING TO FULLY UTILIZE EVERY AVAILABLE

10:42:25 INCH.

10:42:28 UTILITY AREAS, OTHERS, HAVE TO BE COMPREHENSIVELY

10:42:36 LOOKED AT TO MAXIMIZE THE PUBLIC BENEFIT FOR OPEN SPACE

10:42:39 NO MORE EXTRA LAND AND NOT GROWING ANYMORE.

10:42:41 SOMETIMES IT TAKES AN INTENSIVE LOOK.

10:42:44 BUT WHEN YOU REALLY DO LOOK, IT IS SURPRISING LIKE THE

10:42:46 ONES YOU SAID.

10:42:47 SKATE PARKS.

10:42:49 I VISITED THE ONE IN VANCOUVER.

10:42:51 MIAMI JUST BUILT ONE.

10:42:52 RIGHT UNDERNEATH.

10:42:55 KIDS LOVE IT AND GO CRAZY.

10:42:57 YOU KNOW, TO ME, ALL PLAY IS GOOD.

10:43:02 >>JOSEPH CITRO: PROVIDES SHADE ON HOT SUMMER DAYS.

10:43:03 THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

10:43:05 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ANYBODY ELSE?

10:43:05 COUNCILMAN VIERA.

10:43:07 >>LUIS VIERA: THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND THANK YOU FOR

10:43:09 YOU YOUR REPORT AND ALL YOUR WORK.

10:43:12 WE APPRECIATE THAT 100%.

10:43:15 SOMETHING THAT HAD BEEN MENTIONED AND COUNCILMAN GUDES

10:43:18 MENTIONED AND I WANT TO ADDRESS THAT AGAIN.

10:43:21 ACCESSIBLE PARKS OPINION WE MOVED IN OUR CRA TO HELP

10:43:26 HAVE THE CRA FUND CRA AREAS, THE COMPLETION OF THAT BIG

10:43:30 DISABILITY ACCESS DEFICIT WE HAVE IN A LOT OF OUR

10:43:31 PARKS.

10:43:36 TAMPA IS NOT UNIQUE IN THAT PARK.

10:43:39 A LOT OF AREAS HAVE THOSE CHALLENGES.

10:43:41 WHETHER OR NOT YOU HEAR FROM THOSE FAMILIES, THE CRY IS

10:43:43 OUT THERE 110%.

10:43:47 ANY FAMILY WITH A CHILD WHO HAS AUTISM AND INTELLECTUAL

10:43:52 DISABILITY, CEREBRAL PALSY, WHATEVER IT MAY BE, THAT

10:43:55 IS A CRY FOR ACCESS AND SOMETHING VERY, VERY IMPORTANT

10:43:58 AND WE THOUGHT IS TO IMPORTANT WE WANTED TO PUTS CRA

10:44:02 DOLLARS TO HELP THE CITY IN THEIR ENDEAVOR TO DO THAT.

10:44:05 WE ARE HAVING SPECIFICALLY DISABILITY PARKS.

10:44:06 ONE IN NEW TAMPA.

10:44:09 I KNOW ONE IS COMING IN EAST TAMPA AS WELL, BUT I WANT

10:44:11 TO SEE ALL OF OUR PARKS HAVE NOT JUST FULL

10:44:16 ACCESSIBILITIES, BUT AT LEAST ONE PIECE OF PLAYGROUND

10:44:19 EQUIPMENT THAT A CHILD IN THE WHEELCHAIR NOT MOBILE,

10:44:19 ETC.

10:44:24 CAN USE SOMETHING SO VERY PIVOTAL.

10:44:27 PARKS ARE HOW MAINTAINED.

10:44:29 RESPECT FOR THE COMMUNITY AND A GREAT DEAL AND I KNOW

10:44:33 YOU KNOW THAT 110% AND UPDATING AND MAINTENANCE.

10:44:37 AND TALK ABOUT VALUES THAT ARE EXHIBITED TO OUR PARKS

10:44:39 THROUGH THINGS LIKE MEMORIALS.

10:44:42 I DID A MOTION ABOUT A YEAR AGO TO TRY TO MAKE SURE

10:44:45 THAT WE HAD A VETERAN MEMORIAL AT EACH ONE OF OUR FOUR

10:44:46 DISTRICTS IN A PARK.

10:44:50 AND MY IDEA BEHIND THAT WAS, I THINK WHEN PEOPLE GO TO

10:44:54 PUBLIC SPACES, TO GREEN SPACES, HAVING MEMORIALS AND

10:45:02 MARKERS THAT SPEAK TO THE VALUE OF A COMMUNITY HERALDING

10:45:06 SOMETHING THAT WAS THERE THAT WAS NOTE WORTHY.

10:45:10 TALKING OF OUR HEROES AND HISTORY IN A WAY THAT REALLY

10:45:12 BRINGS US TOGETHER IS SO IMPORTANT IN OUR PARKS.

10:45:16 A PLACE THAT WE CAN TALK ABOUT OUR GREAT TAMPA HEROES.

10:45:20 OUR VALDEMERO LOPEZS.

10:45:22 OR ROBERT SAUNDERS.

10:45:25 SO MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE IN THAT REGARD.

10:45:28 AS YOU SAID PAYING ATTENTION TO THE AREAS OF GROWTH IN

10:45:29 OUR CITY.

10:45:32 I KNOW WE ARE SEEING A LOT OF AFFORDABLE AND WORKFORCE

10:45:34 HOUSING COME UP IN WEST.

10:45:36 WESTSHORE CONTINUES TO GROW.

10:45:39 WE HEAR A LOT FROM SOUTH OF GANDY.

10:45:43 K-BAR RANCH CONTINUES TO GROW, ETC.

10:45:45 AND A LOT OF NEEDS OUT THERE AND CONTINUING TO LOOK AT

10:45:46 THAT.

10:45:48 I WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORT AND HIGHLIGHT

10:45:50 THOSE PARTICULAR AREAS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION WHENEVER

10:45:54 THE UPDATE COMES.

10:45:57 >> THE NEXT STEPS WILL BE CRITICAL IN THE VISIONING.

10:46:01 THE CONNECTION TO EXTREME CULTURE IS REALLY WHAT MAKES

10:46:03 MEANINGFUL SPACES.

10:46:09 A MENTOR OF MINE USED TO CALL IT RELEVANT THE NUMBER

10:46:12 ONE WORD IN OUR INDUSTRY IS NOT PARKS, PLAY, BUT

10:46:12 RELEVANT.

10:46:15 AM I MAKING A RELEVANT DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY AND

10:46:16 NEIGHBORHOODS.

10:46:18 SO WHEN YOU CAN TIE IT BACK TO HISTORY AND HAVE BEEN

10:46:25 CONNECTED TO PEOPLE LIVES, FROM THE MOMENT THEY WALK

10:46:30 OUT THEIR FRONT DOOR, IT IS PART OF THE EXPERIENCE.

10:46:31 >>LUIS VIERA: IF I MAY -- THANK YOU.

10:46:35 AND IF I MAY, MR. CHAIR, PERRY HARVEY PARK DOES A GREAT

10:46:38 JOB WITH THAT WHICH IS TALKING OF THE LOCAL HISTORY.

10:46:39 HAVING MEMORIALS THERE.

10:46:43 A LOT OF DIFFERENT -- NARRATIVES EXPLAINING THE

10:46:45 HISTORY, ETC.

10:46:48 I WOULD LIKE TO SEE PARTS OF THAT IN ALL OF OUR PARKS

10:46:51 WHEN FOLKS GO TO PARKS, THEY LEARN ABOUT OUR HERO AND

10:46:53 PRIVATE FIGURES THAT GO BEFORE US.

10:47:02 AGAIN, I THINK VALUES IN PUBLIC SPACES IS SO IMPORTANT.

10:47:04 >> VALUES AND YOU SAID ANOTHER ONE, RESPECT.

10:47:07 IT IS ABOUT REALLY -- I AM PERSONALLY CONNECTED WITH

10:47:10 THE DISABILITY COMMUNITY.

10:47:14 SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT THE PEOPLE THAT -- HAVE WANTED

10:47:18 TO HAVE THE RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITY, ARE EXCITED ABOUT

10:47:21 IT, IT IS REALLY A BIG PART OF THEIR LIVES, MY FATHER,

10:47:25 SISTER, GRANDSON.

10:47:28 THEY ARE EXCLUDED BECAUSE THAT IS NOT RIGHT.

10:47:29 IT IS A RESPECT THING.

10:47:35 IT IS A MATTER OF REALLY COMMUNICATING WITH PEOPLE'S

10:47:37 VALUES INTO SPACE.

10:47:40 BUT I THINK THESE ARE ALL WONDERFUL COMMENTS THAT AS WE

10:47:42 MOVE FORWARD AND ENVISIONING.

10:47:46 ARIZONA WE COME BACK TO YOU WITH A COMPREHENSIVE FULL

10:47:47 PLAN INCLUDING THE IMPLEMENTATION.

10:47:49 AND I AM NOT HIDING ANYTHING HERE.

10:47:53 I AM GOING TO COME BACK WITH A IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR

10:47:56 YOUR CONSIDERATION, BECAUSE IT'S -- YOU KNOW, WE GOT TO

10:47:58 MOVE IT FORWARD.

10:48:02 WE TRY VERY MUCH TO PUT IT OUT.

10:48:05 YOU KNOW, DON'T BE SURPRISED IF I AM BACK HERE TALKING

10:48:07 ABOUT WHAT THAT MEANS.

10:48:09 >>LUIS VIERA: IF I MAY VERY BRIEFLY.

10:48:11 THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING YOUR FAMILY.

10:48:15 MY ELDER BROTHER IS INTELLECTUALLY DISABLED, SO I

10:48:18 APPRECIATE YOU SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE.

10:48:20 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN CARLSON.

10:48:23 >>BILL CARLSON: I HAD TO STEP OUT A SECOND AND I

10:48:28 APOLOGIZE IF I REPEAT ANYTHING THAT EVERYBODY ELSE

10:48:30 SAID.

10:48:33 CONSTITUENTS BECAUSE OF COVID SPEND MOVING TIME AT HOME

10:48:35 IN THEIR PARKS.

10:48:37 THEY ARE UPSET OF THE PARKS.

10:48:40 THEY LIKE ITS PARKS PEOPLE AND PARKS PROGRAM, BUT THE

10:48:45 PARKS IN NEIGHBORHOODS WERE NEGLECTED.

10:48:50 LAST MAYOR SPENT $12 MILLION FOR BOATHOUSE FOR RICH

10:48:53 KIDS IN THE NORTHEAST RATHER THAN FIX BENCHES AND OTHER

10:48:56 THINGS IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE CITY IS SOMETHING THAT

10:48:57 PEOPLE ARE REALLY UPSET ABOUT.

10:49:02 THEY ARE UPSET THAT THIS PROCESS HAS TAKEN SO LONG.

10:49:05 BISHOP PATTY WHO IS SITTING BEHIND YOU BROUGHT TO OUR

10:49:08 ATTENTION TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO THAT ONE OF THE PARKS,

10:49:11 FAIR OAKS IN EAST THIS RATS RUNNING AROUND THE ROOF OF

10:49:11 IT.

10:49:14 WHEN WE WENT THERE, WE FOUND IT WAS A FIRE TRAP AND

10:49:18 THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER IMMEN TEASE.

10:49:21 WHAT PEOPLE -- WHAT I HAVE BEEN TELLING PEOPLE -- IF I

10:49:23 AM WRONG, LET ME KNOW -- THIS IS A WAY OF OBJECTIVELY

10:49:25 LOOKING AT PARKS.

10:49:28 WHERE DECISIONS WERE MADE POLITICALLY OR THE HIM WITH

10:49:31 OF AN INDIVIDUAL BEFORE, WE ARE OBJECTIVELY THROUGH

10:49:35 THIS PROCESS WHAT IS BEING DONE THROUGH EACH PARK AND

10:49:37 PRIORITIZE THE FUNDING BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH

10:49:40 FUNDING TO AFFECT ALL THE PARKS.

10:49:43 RATS IN THE CEILING THAT THE CITY GOT RID OF -- AT

10:49:45 LEAST THEY SAID THEY DID.

10:49:49 WE -- THAT WE WILL PRIORITIZE THOSE PARKS THAT HAVE THE

10:49:52 MOST IMMEDIATE NEED AND A MULTIYEAR SCHEDULE WITH

10:49:53 FUNDING ATTACHED TO IT.

10:49:56 ALL THE PUBLIC INPUT AND ALL THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO

10:50:05 HAVE A VISION AND FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO BUT THE BASIC

10:50:06 NEEDS OF PARKS.

10:50:09 THEY WANT TO HAVE THOSE THINGS FIXED TOO.

10:50:12 DID YOU SAY WHEN ANSWERING COUNCILMAN GUDES' QUESTION.

10:50:15 YOU WILL HAVE A PRIORITY LIST OF WHICH PARKS AND HOW

10:50:16 MUCH MONEY.

10:50:20 AND IS THIS -- IS IT GOING TO FIX EVERYTHING AT ONE

10:50:23 PARK OR BASIC NEEDS OF ALL THE PARKS AND GO BACK TO THE

10:50:26 NEXT LEVEL NEEDS AND NEXT LEVEL NEEDS.

10:50:28 >> THERE IS A BALANCING THERE BECAUSE IT IS MORE

10:50:31 EFFICIENT TO DO THINGS ONCE YOU ARE THERE.

10:50:36 BUT I WOULDN'T SAYS IT DO ONE WHOLE PARK AND DO ONE

10:50:37 WHOLE PARK.

10:50:40 WE HAVE CRITERIA MUTUALLY AGREED UPON.

10:50:42 HEALTH AND SAFETY IS NUMBER ONE.

10:50:48 TOP PRIORITY NEEDS DUE TO DETERIORATING CONDITION COULD

10:50:50 LEAD TO MORE DETERIORATION.

10:50:52 A HOLE IN THE ROOF.

10:50:56 WE HAVE CRITERIA THAT WE TRY TO APPLY THAT IS, AGAIN,

10:50:58 OBJECTIVE AND REALLY DO EVERYTHING.

10:51:01 WE TRY LOOK AT EVERY SINGLE IMPROVEMENT THAT IS NEEDED.

10:51:04 WHETHER THAT GETS SCHEDULED OUT IN THE NEXT TEN YEARS

10:51:09 IN A CLEAR FIVE-YEAR CIP OR ONE-YEAR ACTION PLAN AND

10:51:13 EVEN IF IT -- NOTHING GOES AWAY BUT MAY END UP IN A

10:51:18 TEN-PLUS-YEAR CATEGORY AND STILL KEPT TRACK ON.

10:51:21 WE HEAR THAT PRETTY CLEARLY TOO.

10:51:24 IT IS A LOT ABOUT HOW CAN WE BE TALKING ABOUT MORE WHEN

10:51:25 --

10:51:27 >>BILL CARLSON: WE ARE ABOUT TO GO THROUGH BUDGETING.

10:51:31 WHEN WILL WE HAVE THE FIRST LIST OF THE VARIETIES SO WE

10:51:34 CAN START TO PRIORITIZE THE BUDGET.

10:51:37 >> PROBABLY NOT WHEN YOU GO INTO THIS YEAR -- WE ARE

10:51:40 HOPING TO HAVE IT -- IF YOU CAN CALL UP THE NEXT SLIDE.

10:51:45 PROBABLY BY -- DRAFT BY SEPTEMBER.

10:51:46 >>BILL CARLSON: WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IN THIS

10:51:47 BUDGET?

10:51:51 HOW WOULD WE PRIORITIZE WHAT WE NEED TO DO NOW?

10:51:52 >> THAT IS A HARD QUESTION.

10:51:56 YOU KNOW, I WILL TRY TO CONTEMPLATE WHAT WE CAN DO NOW,

10:52:01 BUT ANY AMOUNT OF HELP TOWARD THOSE TO BE ABLE TO MORE

10:52:05 THOROUGHLY -- LIKE WE DIDN'T GO INTO EVERY BUILDING AND

10:52:07 DO A NEUROEVALUATION OF EVERY BUILDING.

10:52:10 THAT WASN'T IN THERE, BUT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO.

10:52:12 SOMETIMES GETTING THINGS DONE QUICKLY IS ABOUT MAKING

10:52:15 SURE THEY ARE SHOVEL READY.

10:52:17 I DO HAVE ARCHITECTURAL PLANS.

10:52:18 I DO HAVE PERMITS.

10:52:20 REQUEST I MOVE THEM AHEAD.

10:52:22 SOMETIMES IT IS EASIER TO GETS THE FUNDING, RIGHT.

10:52:26 BECAUSE DIFFERENT WAYS TO FUNDS THINGS.

10:52:29 THERE WERE PARTS OF OUR WORK THAT I THINK YOU CAN COULD

10:52:31 DO AS ADVANCING.

10:52:35 AND I THINK THERE ARE LISTS THAT WORK WITH SHERISHA AND

10:52:38 BRAD TO WORK ON THINGS THAT ARE IMMEDIATE AND COULD BE

10:52:42 HELPFUL NOW BUT I TRY NOT TO BE TOO FAR AHEAD OF MYSELF

10:52:45 UNTIL WE HAVE GOTTEN TO THE COMPREHENSIVE AND AGREED

10:52:46 UPON --

10:52:48 >>BILL CARLSON: THE MOST IMPORTANT WORD FOR ME AS WE

10:52:50 GO FORWARD IN BUDGETING.

10:52:53 THAT WORD IS OBJECTIVE AND OBJECTIVITY.

10:52:55 THAT WE HAVE AN OBJECTIVE LOOK AT THE CONDITION OF

10:52:59 THESE SO THAT WE CAN CLEARLY SAY AND THE ADMINISTRATION

10:53:01 SAYS NOT PUT MONEY IN CERTAIN AREAS FOR POLITICAL

10:53:02 REASONS.

10:53:06 WE ARE ONLY TRYING TO PROVIDE EQUITABLE SOLUTIONS

10:53:09 THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND IF CERTAIN PARKS ARE IN WORSE

10:53:11 CONDITION, WE WANT TO BRING THEM UP TO THE LEVEL OF

10:53:14 OTHERS BEFORE WE START GIVING NEW PARKS $12 MILLION

10:53:18 BOATHOUSES.

10:53:22 >> YEAH, WE ARE HONESTLY -- NO ONE HAS TOLD ME ANYTHING

10:53:25 OTHER THAN DO MY PROFESSIONAL JOB.

10:53:27 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN GUDES.

10:53:29 >>ORLANDO GUDES: GLAD YOU SAY THAT, SIR.

10:53:31 WE TALK OF TRANSPARENCY.

10:53:35 MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS A LOT OF TIMES I LOOK AT THESE

10:53:39 MASTER PLANS, THAT WE APPROVE TO GET FUNDED FOR, TO

10:53:43 BRING TO THIS COUNCIL THE REAL STORY.

10:53:45 SOMETIMES WE DON'T GET THAT SEVERAL TIMES.

10:53:48 SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THIS PLAN COMES, YOU

10:53:51 ARE BRINGING US THE REAL STORY.

10:53:53 NOT WHERE SOMEBODY CRAFTS WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, BUT

10:53:55 BEING ABLE TO SAY THIS IS WHAT I DO.

10:53:57 THIS IS WHAT OUR COMPANY SEES.

10:53:57 HERE IT IS, SIR.

10:54:00 WE ARE NOT GOING TO GO AROUND AND CHANGE AND CUT AND

10:54:01 PASTE EVERYTHING.

10:54:04 BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE -- WHEN YOU ARE GETTING PAID,

10:54:09 SOMETIMES YOU GO BY WHAT -- WHAT THE PAYEE IS PAYING TO

10:54:09 YOU DO.

10:54:13 SO I WANT TO MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BRING IT TO US, YOU SAY

10:54:15 THIS IS -- YOU ARE HEARING WHAT COUNCIL IS ASKING.

10:54:18 THIS IS WHAT WE WANT TO SEE WHEN YOU BRING IT TO US TO

10:54:21 BE ABLE TO APPROVE FUNDING GOING INTO A BUDGET YEAR AND

10:54:23 SO FORTH AND SO ON.

10:54:25 I WANT TO MAKE SURE AS MR. CARLSON SAID, WE ARE

10:54:29 PINPOINTING THE NECESSITIES AND THE NEEDS, MAKING SURE

10:54:32 WE ARE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO FOR THESE

10:54:35 DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES.

10:54:38 >> I WILL HOPE IN A CLEAR AND PRAGMATIC WAY.

10:54:42 WE CAN TALK ABOUT CRITERIA AND TALK ABOUT OTHER THINGS,

10:54:43 BUT THIS IS WHAT WE DO.

10:54:45 AND MY WHOLE REPUTATION STANDS ON THE FACT THAT I DON'T

10:54:47 DO THAT.

10:54:47 SO --

10:54:49 >>ORLANDO GUDES: GLAD YOU SAID THAT, SIR.

10:54:50 THANK YOU.

10:54:53 >> IT CERTAINLY DOES HAVE TO BE IN THERE.

10:54:55 THERE ARE INTANGIBLES AND THERE ARE THINGS.

10:54:58 BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT STANDING STILL.

10:55:00 THE CITY IS DOING OTHER STUFF AT THE SAME TIME.

10:55:02 SOMETIMES HOW DOES THIS WORK WITH THE TAMPA MOVES

10:55:06 PROGRAM AND AM I ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING IN COOPERATION

10:55:09 OR DO I NEED TO WAIT ONE YEAR SO IT MATCHES UP WITH THE

10:55:15 SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE FOR ALONG THE WATERFRONT.

10:55:17 A LOT OF TIMES YOU HAVE TO KEY THEM TO MAKE SURE THAT

10:55:21 THEY ARE WORKING WITH THE 40 OTHER INITIATIVES WORKING

10:55:22 ACROSS THE CITY.

10:55:24 WE ARE NOT IN A VACUUM HERE.

10:55:28 WE TRY TO BE AS STRATEGIC AS POSSIBLE.

10:55:30 MAXIMIZE THE BENEFITS OF THE DOLLARS, BUT NO QUESTION,

10:55:32 THERE IS JUST A BIG NEED.

10:55:36 OPINION AND IT IS NOT, OH, WOW, YOU NEED A BIG SUNSHINE

10:55:38 OBJECT OVER HERE.

10:55:40 A LOT OF STUFF IN A LOT OF PLACES.

10:55:45 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

10:55:48 ANYBODY REGISTERED FOR PUBLIC COMMENT ON THIS ITEM?

10:55:49 WE DO NOT.

10:55:52 ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC WISH TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM, ITEM

10:55:54 NUMBER 2 REGARDING THE PARK MASTER PLAN.

10:55:55 I SEE NO ONE?

10:55:56 THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

10:56:00 >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME TODAY.

10:56:02 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: BEFORE WE GO TO FOUR AND FIVE, I

10:56:06 KNOW THAT QUITE A FEW FOLKS NEED TO BE OUT BY 12:00.

10:56:12 WILL ITEM NUMBER 4 BE VERY LENGTHY?

10:56:15 I KNOW ISSUES THAT ARE MONTHS IN THE PROCESS AND PEOPLE

10:56:17 FROM THE PUBLIC HERE, BUT --

10:56:24 >> IT MAY BE.

10:56:27 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: CAN WE DO NUMBER 5 FIRST.

10:56:30 >> ABSOLUTELY.

10:56:32 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: WE WILL GO TO NUMBER FIVE.

10:56:34 YES, MA'AM.

10:56:34 I AM SORRY.

10:56:37 ITEM NUMBER 3.

10:56:39 >>JOSEPH CITRO: SO MOVED.

10:56:42 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: MISS JOHNSON-VELEZ, YOU NEED TO

10:56:43 EXPLAIN.

10:56:45 >>SUSAN JOHNSON-VELEZ: SUSAN JOHNSON-VELEZ, SENIOR

10:56:47 ASSISTANT CITY ATTORNEY.

10:56:51 TO ENHANCE A LITTLE BIT WHAT IS IN MY MEMO.

10:56:58 PENDING LITIGATION FOR A PROPERTY ON RATTLESNAKE POINT.

10:57:57 IF THAT -- IF THAT IS A AMENABLE.

10:57:59 AND AFTER THEY ARE DONE, I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK.

10:58:02 BUT OBVIOUSLY AFTER.

10:58:08 >> GOOD MORNING, ASSISTANT CHIEFLY BERCAW ON BEHALF OF

10:58:11 POLICE CHIEF MARY O'CONNOR, TO DISCUSS OUR VICTIMS OF

10:58:11 CRIMES.

10:58:16 AS YOU KNOW VICTIMS OF CRIME ARE UNSUNG HERO AND THAT

10:58:18 IS WHO WE ARE HERE TO SERVE AND PROTECT.

10:58:20 OUR GOAL TO PREVENT A CRIME FROM OCCURRING.

10:58:22 BUT IF IT DOES, TO BE THERE FOR THE VICTIMS.

10:58:26 YOU CAN SEE BY THE STAKEHOLDERS WE HAVE HERE TOGETHER,

10:58:27 THAT WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.

10:58:30 AND THIS IS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT.

10:58:32 I WOULD LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT A FEW OF THE THINGS WE ARE

10:58:35 DOING AND LET OUR STAKEHOLDERS ADVISE WHAT THEY ARE

10:58:36 DOING.

10:58:39 AS YOU KNOW -- AND I HAVE SEEN -- I AM SURE YOU HAVE

10:58:43 SEEN CHIEF O'CONNOR IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT VICTIMS OF

10:58:45 CRIMES AND THE WELLNESS OF THE COMMUNITY.

10:58:46 THAT INCLUDES THE OFFICERS.

10:58:48 IT INCLUDES OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ESPECIALLY

10:58:54 VICTIMS OF CRIME AND ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS SHE DID

10:58:57 WAS TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WHAT WE

10:58:58 CAN TO DO IMPROVE.

10:59:01 IN THAT ASPECT, SHE HAS ALREADY STARTED A COMPREHENSIVE

10:59:05 DEVELOPMENT PHASE OF IMPROVING OUR CRIME ADVOCATE

10:59:06 PROGRAM.

10:59:07 THAT CONSISTENCY OF SEVERAL ITEMS.

10:59:09 ONE OF THAT IS ASSISTANCE WITH THE CRIME VICTIMS

10:59:11 COMPENSATION FUND.

10:59:13 AND THAT IS THROUGH THE FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERAL'S

10:59:14 OFFICE.

10:59:17 AND THAT MONEY IS THERE BY GETTING ASSISTANCE TO GET

10:59:20 THAT MONEY FOR VICTIMS OF CRIME.

10:59:22 WHETHER HELPING TO COMPLETE A FORM.

10:59:25 WHETHER DOING PAPER WORK, TRANSPORTATION.

10:59:27 ALL PART OF HER PLAN.

10:59:30 THE OTHER THING IS CRISIS AND ALWAYS SOMETHING WE TALK

10:59:32 ABOUT AS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH IS THE CRISIS OF INDIVIDUALS

10:59:34 AND WHAT THEY GO THROUGH.

10:59:37 AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE ARE PARTNERING WITH THE

10:59:38 CRISIS CENTER.

10:59:44 AND OUR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH UNIT ACTUALLY HAVE A

10:59:49 MECHANISM IN PLACE AND SYSTEM TO HELP VICTIMS OF CRIMES

10:59:51 IN CRISIS.

10:59:52 THAT IS AVAILABLE TO US.

10:59:55 TRANSPORTATION, SOMETHING WE TOUCHED ON OPINION WE DO

11:00:00 THAT AND DO IT WELL AND TRANSPORTATION, BESIDES JUST

11:00:02 RIDING IN A MARKED POLICE CAR.

11:00:04 SOMETHING THAT IS DISCREET.

11:00:05 IN ADDITION TO THAT.

11:00:09 YOU HEARD FROM GARY WEISMAN OF WHAT THE STATE

11:00:11 ATTORNEY'S OFFICE DOES WITH VICTIMS OF CRIMES.

11:00:13 AND THE OTHER THING THAT CHIEF OWE CON WE ARE FOCUSING

11:00:19 ON IS THE FRANCIS CAN CENTER -- FRANCISCAN CENTER

11:00:20 OPERATION RESTORE.

11:00:23 I AM NOT SURE IF YOU HEARD THAT, BUT FIRST RESPONDERS

11:00:28 AND TO HAVE A FOUR-DAY RETREAT FOR VICTIMS OF CRIMES.

11:00:31 WE ALREADY HAD THOSE INITIAL DISCUSSIONS AND LOOKING AT

11:00:34 SEVERAL GRANTS THAT MAY MEET THAT OPPORTUNITY.

11:00:37 SO CURRENTLY, WE ARE WORKING WITH THE STATE ATTORNEY'S

11:00:37 OFFICE.

11:00:41 WE ARE WORKING CLOSELY WITH OUR COMMUNITIES.

11:00:44 YOU SEE RISE UP FOR PEACE HERE.

11:00:47 THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES CAN BE OUR GREATEST

11:00:48 ASSET.

11:00:52 RISE UP FOR PEACE, BISHOP PATTY AND SAFE AND SOUND ARE

11:00:55 OUR GREATEST ASSETS AND WORKING TOGETHER WITH THAT.

11:00:58 THAT WILL BE A GOOD TRANSITION FOR WHOEVER WOULD LIKE

11:01:03 TO SPEAK NEXT.

11:01:06 >> GOOD MORNING, FREDDY BARTON WITH SAFE AND SOUND

11:01:07 HILLSBOROUGH.

11:01:12 WE, OF COURSE, ARE TASKED WITH THE DIFFICULT CHALLENGE

11:01:17 OF PREVENTSING AND REDUCING VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

11:01:20 PART OF THAT TO GIVE VOICES TO VICTIMS AND THEIR

11:01:21 FAMILIES.

11:01:23 AS YOU ALTHOUGH IN THE CITY OF TAMPA, AND HILLSBOROUGH

11:01:26 COUNTY IN GENERAL, WE ARE STARTING TO SEE AN UPTICK IN

11:01:27 VIOLENT TIME.

11:01:30 WE ARE ALSO SEEING AN UPTICK IN SHOOTINGS THROUGHOUT

11:01:32 OUR COMMUNITY.

11:01:35 65 FROM -- IS WHERE WE ARE.

11:01:38 IT INCLUDES FATAL AND NONFATAL.

11:01:40 WHEN WE LOOK AT THESE INCIDENTS THAT ARE HAPPENING, WE

11:01:43 HAVE TO KNOW WE HAVE TO PROVIDE DIRECT SUPPORT TO THOSE

11:01:49 VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES.

11:01:55 WE HEARD THAT TPD HAS AN EFFORT TO MOBILIZE OFFICERS TO

11:01:56 REACH OUT TO FAMILIES.

11:02:00 SAFE AND SOUND WITH THE CITY AND COUNTY, A COMMUNITY

11:02:01 RESPONSE TEAM.

11:02:04 THAT COMMUNITY RESPONSE TEAM ALMOST MIMICS WHAT IS

11:02:07 HAPPENING WITH THE NONVIOLENT MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS

11:02:11 MOMENTS WHERE WE COORDINATE THE EFFORTS OF A MENTAL

11:02:15 HEALTH CLINICIAN, A FAITH-BASED PARTNER, A COMMUNITY

11:02:18 PARTNER, THAT WILL PRIMARILY SERVE AS THE POINT OF

11:02:21 CONTACT FOR THE COMMUNITY WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS TO

11:02:25 PROVIDE CRISIS EDUCATION, ONGOING COUNSELING, CASE

11:02:30 MANAGEMENT, ADVOCACIES TO OUTSIDE COMMUNITY PARTNERS.

11:02:32 ANCHORED THROUGH SAFE AND SOUND.

11:02:34 WE ALREADY HAD INITIAL TALKS WITH OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT

11:02:39 AGENCIES TO HAVE A POINT OF CONTACT BE CONNECTED TO

11:02:42 DISPATCH SO WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS IN THE COMMUNITY, WE

11:02:44 CAN MOBILIZE THOSE EFFORTS.

11:02:47 AS SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW, LAST YEAR IN NOVEMBER AND

11:02:51 DECEMBER, THE COUNTY ASKED SAFE AND SOUND TO LEAD A GUN

11:02:53 VIOLENCE PREVENTION EFFORT.

11:02:54 THIS WILL BE A COMPONENT OF THAT.

11:03:00 WE CAN'T DO THAT, THOUGH, UNLESS WE HAVE ORGANIZATIONS

11:03:05 LIKE RYE RISE UP FOR PEACE, TAMPA CLERGY TO COME WITH

11:03:08 US AND LET'S US KNOW HOW WE CAN ASSIST WITH THIS AND

11:03:10 PROVIDE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND RESOURCES ALONG THE

11:03:11 WAY.

11:03:15 WHEN WE LOOK AT RESTORATIVE JUSTICE, WE, AS MOST OF YOU

11:03:19 MAY KNOW, WE OPERATE A REPORTING CENTER FOR YOUTH AND

11:03:21 JUVENILE OFFENDERS.

11:03:23 UNFORTUNATELY, WE STAY WITH USE.

11:03:28 BECAUSE EVERY DAY WE HAVE YOUTH THAT ARE ON JUVENILE

11:03:29 DETENTION DOCKET.

11:03:32 AND WE SEE THAT WE ARE WORKING WITH THEM TO TRY TO TURN

11:03:33 THEM AROUND.

11:03:36 BUT ONE COMPONENT THAT IS MISSING IS THE MEETING

11:03:40 BETWEEN THE YOUTH DEFENDERS AND THEN THEIR VICTIMS.

11:03:45 AND WE ARE BUILDING THAT COMPONENT TO HAVE A VICTIMS

11:03:48 VOICES PROJECTS TO FACE THEIR VICTIMS AND THOSE

11:03:51 FAMILIES AND TALK ABOUT WHAT LED THEM TO GET DOWN ON

11:03:52 THIS PATH.

11:03:54 SOMETHING THAT WE ARE WORKING WITH YOUTHFUL OFFENDERS

11:03:59 ON WEAPONS CHARGES AND GUNS THAT WE NEED TO TAKE -- WE

11:04:01 ARE TAKING THEM OVER TO FUNERAL HOMES.

11:04:03 WE ARE TAKING THEM TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM.

11:04:06 WE ARE TAKING THEM TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THESE

11:04:06 THINGS HAPPEN.

11:04:07 WHEN DO YOU SOMETHING.

11:04:11 AND YOU ARE THINKING IN THE MOMENT, YOU FORGET

11:04:13 COMPLETELY THERE ARE FAMILIES THAT WILL BE AFFECTED BY

11:04:15 THIS FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

11:04:18 FOR YOU TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN A TRAUMA CENTER.

11:04:20 FOR YOU TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN A FUNERAL HOME AND HOW

11:04:24 IT TAKES WHEN -- WHEN MR. GUDES AND HIS GROUP STARTS

11:04:25 WORKING WITH THAT.

11:04:29 AND THE PAIN THAT LIVES NOT JUST IN THE FAMILY BUT IN

11:04:30 THE COMMUNITY.

11:04:34 YOU THE OFFENDER NEED TO SEE THAT SO IF YOU DON'T GET

11:04:36 IT, SOMEONE ELSE ALONG THE WAY WILL.

11:04:39 AND WE ARE TRYING TO PUT THAT COMPONENT TOGETHER TO

11:04:41 GIVE SUPPORT FOR THE VICTIMS AND FAMILIES OF THESE

11:04:44 CRIMES THAT ARE HAPPENING.

11:04:47 AND WE CERTAINLY -- WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR THE SUPPORT

11:04:50 THAT WE HAVE WITH TAMPA POLICE DEPARTMENT.

11:04:50 HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.

11:04:54 ALL OF OUR AGENCIES THAT MAKE UP THE INTERLOCAL GROUP

11:04:55 OF SAFE AND SOUND.

11:04:57 AND WE STAND AT THE READY TO PROVIDE TECHNICAL

11:04:59 ASSISTANCE.

11:05:00 SOME EDUCATION.

11:05:03 SOME LIFTING UP OFF THE GROUND FOR ANY PILOT PROJECTS

11:05:06 THAT COULD BE A PART OF THIS.

11:05:07 WE STAND AT THE READY.

11:05:07 THANK YOU.

11:05:09 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

11:05:10 YES, MA'AM.

11:05:12 >> GOOD MORNING, COUNCIL.

11:05:15 MY NAME IS BISHOP MICHELLE B. PATTY.

11:05:19 I WOULD LIKE TO START OFF BY THANKING YOU COUNCILMAN

11:05:22 VIERA AND COUNCILMAN MANISCALCO FOR PUTTING THIS ON THE

11:05:22 AGENDA.

11:05:26 WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I HAD OUR SONS 25 YEARS AGO, IT IS

11:05:29 OUR PRAYER THAT THEY WOULD REACH THE AGE OF 21.

11:05:32 REACHING THE AGE OF 21, WE FELT THAT WOULD BE MANHOOD

11:05:36 AND THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO GO ON IN LIFE; HOWEVER, OUR

11:05:41 SON -- ONE OF OUR SONS, BYRON PATTY SR, WHEN HE TURNED

11:05:46 21, ON FEBRUARY 10, APRIL 23, HE WAS MURDERED, TWO

11:05:48 MONTHS LATER.

11:05:53 LEAVING AN 8-MONTH-OLD CHILD BEHIND, A SON, BYRON PATTY

11:05:53 JR.

11:06:00 HERE 11 YEARS LATER, THAT CHILD, OUR GRANDSON WAS

11:06:02 MURDERED.

11:06:06 AND IN THE FIRST INSTANCE, WE HAD TO FIND THE KILLER

11:06:06 OURSELVES.

11:06:07 I WENT OUT.

11:06:09 WE PUT OUT FLYERS.

11:06:12 WE WENT EVERYWHERE AROUND THE COMMUNITY FOR YEARS UNTIL

11:06:13 WE FOUND THE KILLER.

11:06:17 NOW WHEN OUR GRANDSON WAS MURDERED, THINGS WERE A

11:06:18 LITTLE DIFFERENT.

11:06:20 WE HAD THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORTED ME.

11:06:22 CALLED ME, GAVE ME THE PERSON'S NAME.

11:06:25 I AM SAYING ALL THIS TO SAY THAT THINGS HAVE NOT

11:06:26 CHANGED.

11:06:28 IT ACTUALLY HAVE GOTTEN WORSE.

11:06:32 NOW CHILDREN ARE NOT LIVING TO EVEN BECOME 13, 12, 14

11:06:34 YEARS OF AGE.

11:06:36 THEY ARE BEING MURDERED IN THE STREETS.

11:06:38 YOU SAY HOW CAN WE PREVENT THIS?

11:06:41 WE NEED TO FIND OUT WHERE THE GUNS ARE COMING FROM.

11:06:46 THE CHILDREN IN BELMONT HEIGHTS ESTATES ARE NOT

11:06:47 BRINGING THE GUNS IN.

11:06:49 SOMEONE IS BRINGING THE GUNS IN TO THEM.

11:06:51 AND THEY ARE ALSO BRINGING DRUGS.

11:06:55 WE HAVE A DRUG ISSUE THAT IS GOING ON IN ELEMENTARY

11:06:56 SCHOOL.

11:06:58 THE EFFECT THAT IT HAS ON MY FAMILY.

11:07:02 AS I STAND HERE TODAY, I AM STILL RELIVING THE EVENTS

11:07:08 OF -- WATCHING OUR SON IN A HOTEL ROOM LYING DOWN ON

11:07:09 THE FLOOR MURDERED.

11:07:12 MY HUSBAND DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO COPE WITH IT BECAUSE HE

11:07:14 WAS TOLD MEN DON'T CRY.

11:07:15 MEN DON'T SHOW FEELING.

11:07:21 BUT YEARS LATER, I HAD TO SEEK COUNSELING FOR THAT SAME

11:07:21 HUSBAND.

11:07:24 OUR OTHER SON, WHO WAS A STUDENT AT BETHUNE-COOKMAN

11:07:29 COLLEGE REFUSED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AT THAT POINT.

11:07:33 BUT I THANK GOD THAT LATER ON HE DID ATTAIN HIS B.

11:07:34 A. DEGREE.

11:07:40 OUR GRANDSON THAT I JUST RAISED AND HE WILL BE 19 ON

11:07:45 THIS FRIDAY, THE EFFECT OF HIS COUSIN STILL BOTHERS HIM

11:07:45 TODAY.

11:07:49 HE WAS A YOUNG WHEN HIS COUSIN WAS KILLED AND HE

11:07:52 CARRIED A LOCKET -- I JUST WATCHED IT LAST NIGHT ON HIS

11:07:53 NECK.

11:07:56 SO YOU NEVER -- PAIN NEVER GO AWAY.

11:07:59 THE PAIN IS ALWAYS THERE.

11:08:02 THAT FAMILY MEMBER IS MISSED.

11:08:03 HOLIDAYS.

11:08:06 I CAN HEAR A SONG OR JUST THINK OF A SMOOIL OR

11:08:08 SOMETHING THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE SAID THAT BRING IT

11:08:09 CRASHING BACK DOWN TO ME.

11:08:13 AND THE FACT -- AS I GET READY TO CLOSE JUST A DAY

11:08:17 BEFORE YESTERDAY I WAS AT A SANDWICH SHOP ON MLK AND A

11:08:20 YOUNG MAN -- I JUST ENGAGED HIM WHAT HE WAS DOING IN

11:08:21 LIFE AND GOING ON.

11:08:24 COME TO FIND OUT THIS YOUNG MAN KNEW MY GRANDSON.

11:08:28 AND THIS YOUNG MAN WHEN -- HE IS 30 YEARS OLD NOW AND I

11:08:31 THOUGHT WOULD MY GRANDSON HAD A CHILD.

11:08:33 WHAT WOULD HE BE DOING AT THIS TIME.

11:08:37 IN YOUNG MAN GAVE ME THE BIGGEST HUG AND HE TOLD ME AND

11:08:38 SAID WE ARE STILL SUPPORTING YOU.

11:08:40 WE ARE STILL PRAYING FOR YOU.

11:08:42 YOU KNOW THAT GIVES US THE STRENGTH TO GO ON.

11:08:45 I WOULD LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT CHIEF O'CONNOR.

11:08:48 WE HAVE BEEN MEETING.

11:08:50 -- I AM A SMALL GROUP MEETING WITH HER SINCE SHE HAS

11:08:51 BEEN APPOINTED.

11:08:54 HE HAS -- SHE IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF TRYING TO SEE

11:08:56 ABOUT DOING SOME THINGS.

11:08:58 WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL TO HER.

11:09:01 THIS GROUP -- WE COME WITH SUGGESTIONS, IDEAS, AND I AM

11:09:03 HOPING THAT THE CITY COUNCIL, THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

11:09:08 WILL IMPLEMENT THESE IDEAS SO WE SAY THANK YOU AND HATS

11:09:09 OFF TO HER.

11:09:12 I WANT TO THANK THE MAYOR.

11:09:15 BECAUSE THE MAYOR SEEM TO BE ENGAGING IN TRYING TO SEE

11:09:16 WHAT WE CAN DO.

11:09:18 BECAUSE I WANT YOU ALL TO UNDERSTAND, IT MIGHT APPEAR

11:09:23 TO BE A BLIGHT PROBLEM NOW AND A BLIGHT COMMUNITY, BUT

11:09:25 GUNS ARE BEING FIRED EVERYWHERE.

11:09:28 IF YOU JUST LOOKED AT THE LITTLE LEAGUE -- THESE KIDS

11:09:30 OUT PLAYING BASEBALL.

11:09:32 THEY ARE HEARING GUNFIRE.

11:09:35 THEY ARE DUCKING OPINION THIS SHOULD NOT BE.

11:09:38 CHILDREN SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO TO THOSE PARKS.

11:09:39 TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME.

11:09:42 NOT WORRIED ABOUT IF THEY WILL BE MURDERED ON THE

11:09:44 PARKING LOT OR ON THE FIELD.

11:09:46 WE ARE GLAD YOU ARE BRINGING THIS FORWARD.

11:09:49 BUT THERE ARE THINGS WE CAN DO IF WE REALLY WANT TO.

11:09:52 AND IF WE REALLY WANT TO PUT THE MONEY THERE IS.

11:09:54 BUT I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO CAUTION, WHEN WE THROW MONEY

11:09:57 OUT HERE THAT WE BE TRANSPARENT.

11:10:01 THAT WE FOLLOW UP ON WHERE THE DOLLARS ARE BEING SPENT.

11:10:05 WE BE TRANSPARENTS AND FOLLOW UP WHO IS GETTING THESE

11:10:07 DOLLARS AND WHAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY DOING WITH THE

11:10:07 DOLLARS.

11:10:10 BECAUSE RISE UP FOR PEACE -- I AM GOING TO SAY THIS

11:10:12 ABOUT JAY, HE IS A HUMBLE MAN.

11:10:14 AND HE WILL TALK ABOUT HIS STORY.

11:10:17 BUT THIS IS SOMEONE THAT HAS BEEN ON THE GROUND, HE AND

11:10:20 MISS PATRICIA DOING THE JOB THAT THEY SHOULD BE

11:10:21 COMPENSATED FOR.

11:10:23 NOBODY IS GIVING THEM GAS.

11:10:25 NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING.

11:10:27 BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE DOLLARS PUT IN THE HANDS OF

11:10:32 PEOPLE LIKE THESE THAT ARE ACTUALLY OUT HERE AND HAVE

11:10:35 THE RESPECT OF THE PEERS THAT ARE DOING THE VIOLENT

11:10:35 CRIME.

11:10:38 THERE IS ANOTHER PROGRAM THAT I TALKED TO THE MAYOR --

11:10:42 CHIEF O'CONNOR ABOUT, SHERIFF ABOUT IMPLEMENTING THAT

11:10:47 KIDS BE -- BEFORE THEY GET IN TROUBLE.

11:10:51 THE PARENTS CAN'T GET THINK HELP UNTIL THE CHILDREN

11:10:52 COMMIT A CRIME.

11:10:53 THERE SHOULD BE PREVENTION.

11:10:56 AND THERE IS A PROGRAM THAT I THINK WILL NOT SAVE

11:10:57 EVERYONE, BUT IT WILL SAVE A FEW.

11:10:59 SO WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

11:11:01 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU, BISHOP PATTY.

11:11:04 I CAN'T IMAGINE THE SUFFERING AND PAIN THAT YOUR FAMILY

11:11:06 HAS GONE THROUGH WITH WHAT -- EVERYTHING THAT YOU

11:11:07 DESCRIBED.

11:11:08 AND YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY PERSON.

11:11:11 I MEAN, SO MANY IN THE COMMUNITY.

11:11:14 AND I JUST -- I NEVER UNDER STOOD GUN VIOLENCE.

11:11:19 WHY PEOPLE RESORT TO -- I MEAN, MURDER, DEATH, IS -- IT

11:11:21 IS A PERMANENT THING, YOU KNOW.

11:11:23 NOT LIKE YOU PUNCH SOMEBODY IN THE FACE.

11:11:24 YOU BROKE THEIR NOSE.

11:11:27 I DON'T UNDERSTAND -- AT 13 YEARS OLD.

11:11:28 12 YEARS OLD.

11:11:29 THEY ARE KIDS.

11:11:29 THEY ARE KIDS.

11:11:32 YOU KNOW, SOMETHING THAT YOU SAID IS PREVENTIVE.

11:11:35 WE HAVE TO REACH OUT TO THESE YOUNG PEOPLE BEFORE THEY

11:11:39 GET IN TROUBLE AND REMEMBER SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED TO

11:11:40 ME.

11:11:45 WE HAD A FRIEND NAMED JUDGE VINCE GILIO A LOCAL JUDGE.

11:11:48 AND HE DID -- HE HANDLED THE JUVENILE COURTS.

11:11:50 WHEN I WAS 12 OR 13 YEARS OLD.

11:11:53 NOT THAT I WAS A BAD KID, BUT HE TOOK ME TO HIS COURT

11:11:56 ROOM AND SAID THIS IS THE HOLDING CELL.

11:12:00 THIS IS THE BATHROOM THAT THEY HAVE TO -- THE TOILET.

11:12:01 IT WASN'T A BATHROOM.THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET

11:12:02 IN TROUBLE.

11:12:05 THIS IS -- I DON'T WANT TO SAY SCARED ME ENOUGH, BUT

11:12:08 TAUGHT ME ENOUGH OF A LESSON THAT SAID I DON'T WANT

11:12:09 NOBODY THAT SITUATION.

11:12:11 BUT IT WAS PREVENTIVE.

11:12:14 AND I THINK -- YOU KNOW, WE NEED TO REACH OUT TO THESE

11:12:17 YOUNG PEOPLE EARLY ON AND INFLUENCE THEM IN A POSITIVE

11:12:17 WAY.

11:12:22 SO, AGAIN, TO PREVENT ANYTHING -- PREVENT EVEN GETTING

11:12:26 THE IDEA OF RESORTING TO GUN VIOLENCE OR THINKING

11:12:28 ANYTHING VIOLENT OR ANY KINDS OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY AND

11:12:30 THAT'S WHERE WE BEGIN.

11:12:31 I APPRECIATE THAT.

11:12:34 >> THAT IS EXACTLY THE PROGRAM I WANT TO IMPLEMENT.

11:12:36 TO TAKE THEM TO THE JAIL CELL.

11:12:38 SHOW WHERE YOU WILL SLEEP AT, EAT AT.

11:12:40 NO UBER.

11:12:48 NO FOOD ON DEMAND THAT IS COMING THERE THAT IS THE

11:12:50 PROGRAM SEND CALLED THAT IS REALLY HAPPENING.

11:12:53 PEOPLE COMING OUT OF JAIL SAYS IT A PICNIC.

11:12:57 IF THEY SEE THAT YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR BUSINESS IN FRONT

11:12:58 OF OTHER PEOPLE.

11:13:00 OUR KIDS WILL NOT WANT TO DO THAT.

11:13:03 AT 12 AND 13, THEIR MIND DOES NOT DEVELOP.

11:13:03 THEY HAVE A GUN.

11:13:05 THEY ARE A BIG PERSON.

11:13:06 THEY JUST SHOOT IT.

11:13:07 YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

11:13:10 THAT IS THE PROGRAM I WOULD LIKE TO ENTER.

11:13:13 AND I WAS A CHILD THAT WENT TO THE COURTHOUSE AND

11:13:15 WATCHED AND HEARD THE COURTS AND IT DID HELP.

11:13:16 I NEVER HAVE BEEN TO JAIL.

11:13:17 THANK YOU SO MUCH.

11:13:18 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU.

11:14:19 SENSE OF ONENESS.

11:14:22 OUR MISSION STATEMENT TO PROVIDE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT TO

11:14:25 FAMILIES WHO ARE LOST LOVED ONES TO SENSELESS VIOLENCE

11:14:29 UNITED AS ONE VOICE, ONE SOUND AGAINST VIOLENCE WITH

11:14:32 POOR STRENGTH, DIGNITY AND THE COLLECTIVE THOUGHTS BY

11:14:37 JOINING FORCES WITH POLICE OFFICERS, PUBLIC OFFICIALS,

11:14:39 POLICE OFFICERS, AND LIKE-MINDED ORGANIZATIONS WHO HAVE

11:14:42 THE HEART FOR THE HURTING, HELPLESS AND HOPELESS

11:14:45 INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE SEEKING CLOSURE AND COMMITTED TO

11:14:50 THE SOLE TURN OF PEACE, LOVE AND UNITY IN OUR

11:14:51 COMMUNITY.

11:14:53 THAT IS OUR FOUNDATION.

11:14:56 THIS IS A HUMAN RIGHT ISSUE.

11:14:58 THE GUN VIOLENCE THAT IS PLAGUING OUR COMMUNITY LIKE

11:15:00 THE BISHOP AND THE PREVIOUS PERSON.

11:15:01 IT IS A NATIONAL ISSUE.

11:15:04 THERE IS NOWHERE SAFE.

11:15:08 US AT RISE UP FOR PEACE IS LITERALLY TRYING TO BE --

11:15:12 WHEN MY SON WAS MURDERED JUST LIKE -- FOUNDER PATRICIA

11:15:15 BROWN, ALL WE HAD WERE EACH OTHER.

11:15:18 WE BUILD DRUG FACILITY FOR DRUG ADDICTS.

11:15:22 WE DO -- WE PUT THINGS IN PLACE FOR PEOPLE THAT VISIT

11:15:24 TRAUMA.

11:15:28 SO AS RISE UP FOR PEACE, WE THOUGHT IT WAS RIGHT TO

11:15:32 COME TOGETHER AND HAVE A PLACE SO THAT WHEN A FAMILY

11:15:36 EXPERIENCED A TRAUMA, THAT WE WAKE UP LIVING EVERY

11:15:39 PARENT'S WORST NIGHTMARE IS LOSING THEIR CHILD.

11:15:42 NO ONE WANTS TO BURY THEIR CHILD.

11:15:44 LIKE THE BISHOP SAID ONGOING.

11:15:47 EVERY DAY IS A STRUGGLE TO SEE US SMILE AND LAUGHING.

11:15:50 FOR US THIS IS THERAPEUTIC.

11:15:52 KNOWING AND HAVING A PLACE TO TURN TO.

11:15:54 BECAUSE THE STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE ONLY OPEN.

11:15:57 MURDERS AND SHOOTINGS HAPPEN ANY TIME OF THE DAY AND

11:15:59 EVERY TIME OF THE NIGHT AND HAVING SOMEONE THAT YOU

11:16:01 CALL ON.

11:16:03 NOT KNOWING WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH BUT HAVE

11:16:06 UNDERSTANDING AND EMPATHY FOR A PERSON IS VITAL.

11:16:08 IF I HAD THAT INITIALLY IT WOULD HAVE DONE A LOT FOR

11:16:10 MYSELF AND MY FAMILY.

11:16:11 A DOMINO EFFECT.

11:16:13 I HAVE OTHER KIDS.

11:16:15 SO THEY ARE DEALING WITH TRAUMA AND MENTAL HEALTH

11:16:18 ISSUES LOSING THEIR SIBLING AS WELL.

11:16:20 SO WE DEFINITELY WORK CLOSE WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT,

11:16:23 THE CITY OF TAMPA, THE MAYOR'S OFFICE.

11:16:24 WE COULDN'T DO IT WITHOUT IT.

11:16:26 BUT TAKES EVERYONE HANDS ON DECK.

11:16:34 I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU COUNCILMAN LU IS FOR KEEPING

11:16:36 THIS ON THE FOREFRONT.

11:16:37 IT IS HURTING FAMILIES.

11:16:40 WE HAVE A LOT OF COLD CASES THAT CAN BRING A LOT --

11:16:42 CHANGE THE ATMOSPHERE IF WE DO SOMETHING.

11:16:44 DOING SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN DOING NOTHING AT ALL.

11:16:47 THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SUPPORT

11:16:49 FROM EACH AND EVERY ONE.

11:16:50 THE DEFINITION OF SUPPORT BEFORE I LEAVE.

11:16:54 SUPPORT IS TO UPHOLD AND HOLD UP OR GIVE ENCOURAGEMENT

11:17:01 AND ANYONE THAT IS SUCCESSFUL HAS SUPPORT AND THAT IS

11:17:04 RISE UP FOR PEACE TRYING TO BE A VITAL PART OF OUR

11:17:10 COMMUNITY OF GETTING SUPPORT BY GIVE SUPPORT.

11:17:12 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH COUNCILMAN

11:17:13 GUDES.

11:17:15 >>ORLANDO GUDES: AND I SEE FREDDY HERE.

11:17:21 I TALKED TO FREDDY AND GAVE FREDDY MY SUGGESTIONS.

11:17:24 I TALKED TO JAY NUMEROUS TIMES.

11:17:28 WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE, AIN'T SOMETHING NEW TO ME.

11:17:31 I KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

11:17:36 WE GOT TO HAVE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE AND TO GET IT DONE.

11:17:38 THERE IS AN ANSWER, GENTLEMEN.

11:17:40 BUT YOU GOT TO WANT TO DO IT.

11:17:46 YOU KNOW, SEE, I -- I BURIED JAY'S SON.

11:17:49 NOBODY CAN -- NOBODY CAN THANK ME AND NOBODY NEEDS -- I

11:17:53 HAVE BEEN THERE TO UNDERSTAND ON THE GROUND LEVEL FROM

11:17:55 DAY ONE.

11:17:59 SEE, WHAT WE HAVE TO HAVE IS TWO THINGS.

11:18:05 WE HAVE TO CHANGE OUR THINKING AND OUR COMMUNITIES.

11:18:08 WE HAVE TO BE MAKE SURE WE GET BACK TO THE OLD TEACHES

11:18:15 OF BLACK FOLKS TO WHERE WE ARE ABLE TO MENTOR OUR YOUNG

11:18:16 MEN.

11:18:17 THAT'S WHAT I GOT TO FIND.

11:18:22 I GOT TO FIND MORE MEN TO BE ABLE TO BRING THAT

11:18:24 AFFECTION TO THEM.

11:18:27 ONCE WE DO THAT I WILL SAVE SOME -- I MAY NOT GET ALL.

11:18:29 RIGHT, FREDDY?

11:18:32 I MAY NOT GET ALL, BUT PARTICULAR FIND A BUNCH OF MEN

11:18:35 NOT JUST BECAUSE A WEEK OR TWO.

11:18:38 I NEED THEM FOR AT THAT WHILE, SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR TO

11:18:39 BE PART OF THAT.

11:18:41 I NEED THEM BECAUSE NOW THEY WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT

11:18:43 SUCCESS IS.

11:18:44 THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE IN THE STREETS.

11:18:46 THEY DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS.

11:18:49 BECAUSE THEY ARE AROUND SOMEONE THAT LOVES THEM AND GET

11:18:50 THEM SUPPORT.

11:18:53 WHO IS GOING TO SAY, I AM GOING TO GET YOU A JOB.

11:18:55 I AM GOING TO CHECK ON YOU EVERY DAY.

11:18:58 I AM GOING TO TAKE YOU HERE, THERE SO YOU SEE THE OTHER

11:18:59 EXPERIENCES THAT PEOPLE ARE SEEING.

11:19:01 THAT IS ALL THEY WANT.

11:19:03 THEY DON'T WANT TO BE OUT THERE.

11:19:06 SECONDLY, MISS PATTY TALKED ABOUT THE GUNS.

11:19:10 I TOLD THE -- THE FORMER CHIEF BEFORE, YOU GOT TO

11:19:13 SPEND MONEY.

11:19:15 WHEN CRACK WAS A BIG DEAL WE SPENT MONEY TO FIND THE

11:19:19 CRACK DEALERS AND ALL THIS KIND OF STUFF TO SLOW CRACK

11:19:19 DOWN.

11:19:24 WE NEED TO HAVE MONEY TO GO IN TO SEE WHO IS SELLING

11:19:25 THESE GUNS.

11:19:28 I HEAR ALL THE TIME A BIG U-HAUL TRUCK THAT COMES

11:19:30 THROUGH THE COMMUNITY ALL WEEK AND GO IN AND BUY GUNS.

11:19:32 I HEARD THAT SEVERAL TIMES.

11:19:35 WE GOT TO BE ABLE TO SPEND MONEY TO DO WHAT WE NEED TO

11:19:35 DO.

11:19:38 TO GET RID OF SOME OF THESE GUNS AND PUT SOME OF THESE

11:19:39 PEOPLE IN JAIL.

11:19:42 IF YOU KILL PEOPLE, YOU NEED TO GO TO JAIL.

11:19:43 PERIODS.

11:19:47 YOU GOT A GUN, YOU NEED TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES.

11:19:50 AND I BELIEVE IN THAT.

11:19:55 MISS PATRICIA, JAY, THEY ARE OUT THERE HUSTLING EVERY

11:19:57 WEEK TO GET PEOPLE TO DO WHAT THEY GOT TO DO.

11:19:58 EVERY WEEK.

11:19:59 EVERY WEEK.

11:20:01 AND I APPLAUD THEIR EFFORTS.

11:20:02 I HAVE BEEN TO THEIR EVENTS.

11:20:09 WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO BE A PART OF THEIR GROUP.

11:20:13 YOU KNOW WE NEED THE WHOLE COMMUNITY TO BE PART OF THE

11:20:14 RALLY.

11:20:16 WHEN THEY SEE THAT.

11:20:17 MISS PATRICIA.

11:20:18 100%.

11:20:20 ANYTHING YOU NEED I AM THERE FOR.

11:20:22 I NEED MORE MEN TO GO OUT AND HELP ME PULL SOME OF

11:20:27 THESE YOUNG MEN IN TO GIVE THEM ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY.

11:20:30 I NEED THAT KIND OF HELP, FREDDY.

11:20:35 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU, SIR.

11:20:44 YES, MA'AM.

11:20:47 >>ORLANDO GUDES: WE KNOW YOU ARE HURTING, MISS

11:20:48 PATRICIA.

11:20:53 >> MY NAME IS PATRICIA BROWN, THE FOUNDER OF RISE UP TO

11:20:53 PEACE.

11:20:59 MY SON DEVONTE BROWN WAS MURDERED COMING HOME FROM

11:21:00 WORK.

11:21:03 GOT CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE IN SEMINOLE PARK.

11:21:05 HE GOT HIT IN THE BACK.

11:21:09 HEART BLEW OUT.

11:21:12 BLEW HIS HEART OUT INSTANTLY OPINION SON NEVER HAVE

11:21:14 BEEN IN TROUBLE.

11:21:16 GRADUATED FROM JOB COURT.

11:21:19 BEEN WORKING AT THE HOME DEPOT FOR SEVEN YEARS.

11:21:24 HE WAS WORKING IN JOB COURT.

11:21:25 NEVER BOTHERED NO ONE.

11:21:28 NEVER HAD AN ARGUMENT 27 YEARS OF HIS LIFE.

11:21:28 WITH NO ONE.

11:21:31 NOT EVEN A FIGHT.

11:21:36 THIS IS THE REASON I FORMED RISE UP FOR PEACE, FOR

11:21:41 PARENTS LIKE MYSELF AND OTHER PARENTS AND FATHERS LIKE

11:21:45 JAY TO NOT GO THROUGH THE SAME THING -- THE HURT OF

11:21:47 WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH AGAIN.

11:21:52 MY THING IS TO -- THING IS TO GO FIND -- NOT FIND

11:21:54 PARENTS, BUT HELP PARENTS TO COME AND CONSOLE EACH

11:21:55 OTHER.

11:21:57 SOMEWHERE TO COME IF THEY DON'T HAVE NO ONE TO TALK

11:22:00 TO.

11:22:02 TO JUST LISTEN TO WHAT THEY ARE GOING THROUGH IS

11:22:04 THERAPY ENOUGH FOR THEM.

11:22:06 BECAUSE I KNOW IT WAS FOR ME.

11:22:09 FOR SOMEBODY TO SAY, HERE, LET'S SIT THERE.

11:22:10 HEAR WHAT I HAD TO SAY.

11:22:14 AND JUST LET ME CRY OUT MY HURT.

11:22:20 MY THING IS, WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO, ALSO, IS -- I

11:22:24 KNOW IT CAN'T STOP THE GUN VIOLENCE BECAUSE IT IS

11:22:25 HAPPENING EVERY DAY.

11:22:29 BUT MY THING IS, I AM TRYING AS BEST AS I CAN TO DO

11:22:31 SOMETHING THAT I CAN DO SO ANOTHER PARENT DON'T HAVE TO

11:22:33 GO THROUGH WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH AND OTHER PARENTS

11:22:39 THAT IS OUT THERE THAT DON'T HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.

11:22:41 I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE TAMPA POLICE DEPARTMENT

11:22:45 FROM DAY ONE, WHEN THEY CALLED ME AND ASKED ME TO DO A

11:22:46 PRESS CONFERENCE.

11:22:49 AND I CAME AND I DID A PRESS CONFERENCE.

11:22:52 I ASKED THEM, WHAT IS IT THAT I CAN DO.

11:22:54 I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT DOING IT.

11:22:58 IS TO GET AN ORGANIZATION OR SOME KINDS OF THING YOU

11:23:01 CAN DO FOR OTHERS -- LIKE I SAID FOR OTHER PARENTS SO

11:23:03 THEY DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH WHAT I AM GOING FLEW.

11:23:06 THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD NEVER -- THIS IS NOT A

11:23:10 PAIN OR HEADACHE OR TOOTHACHE THAT WILL TAKE LEAVE AND

11:23:15 -- TAKE ALLEAVE OR TYLENOL.

11:23:17 SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH EVERY SINGLE DAY OF

11:23:18 YOUR LIFE.

11:23:21 I CAN SIT HERE AND TALK AND SMILE AT YOU RIGHT NOW AND

11:23:24 TURN MY BACK AND CRY BECAUSE OF THE PAIN BY THROUGH.

11:23:27 NOT SOMETHING THAT JUST -- JUST TO BE DOING IT.

11:23:35 IT COMES NATURALLY.

11:23:43 I AM SORRY.

11:23:45 >> THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO COME TOGETHER AS A

11:23:49 COMMUNITY, AS A CITY TO BE AN EXAMPLE.

11:23:51 WE CAN LEAD THE WAY.

11:23:51 WHY NOT US?

11:23:53 WHY NOT THIS CITY COUNCIL?

11:23:54 WHY NOT THIS POLICE DEPARTMENT?

11:23:56 WHY NOT THE CITY OF TAMPA?

11:24:02 WHY NOT US MAKE THE DIFFERENCE THAT OUR COMMUNITY NEED.

11:24:05 AND A LITTLE EMPATHY AND UNDERSTANDING THAT EFFECTS US

11:24:06 ALL.

11:24:09 YOUR KIDS GO TO SCHOOL WITH SOMEONE AND KNOW SOMEONE

11:24:10 WHO HAVE BEEN KILLED.

11:24:11 IF AFFECTS THEM.

11:24:14 LOOK THE COUNCIL -- ANY SHOOTING AT ANY SCHOOL.

11:24:16 WE DON'T HAVE THAT IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

11:24:18 WE ARE OUR OWN COUNCILS.

11:24:19 WE ARE OUR OWN SUPPORT TEAM.

11:24:22 THAT IS WHY WE AS RISE UP FOR PEACE IS TRYING TO HELP

11:24:26 TO BUILD THIS AND FACILITATE SO 3:00 IN THE MORNING.

11:24:27 2:00 IN THE AFTERNOON.

11:24:30 5:00, WHENEVER THEY EXPERIENCE.

11:24:34 AND REACH OUT AND BEAT UP ON THEM AND WE WILL BE THERE

11:24:38 AND A VITAL LIFELINE TO BE A RESOURCE AND HAVE -- LIKE

11:24:43 PATRICIA SAYS, YOU CAN'T IMAGINE THE COUNTLESS TIME WE

11:24:45 HAVE ON THE PHONE TOGETHER CRYING TO EACH OTHER, TRYING

11:24:48 TO GET THROUGH THE DAY TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING TO

11:24:50 KEEP THE COMMUNITY AWARE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING.

11:24:54 ON THE PHONE TALKING, BREAKING DOWN WITH EACH OTHER

11:24:57 TRYING TO GIVE BACK BECAUSE WE KNOW WHAT THE HURT FEELS

11:24:57 LIKE.

11:24:59 WE CAN'T GO TO TAMPA GENERAL.

11:25:01 WE CAN'T GO TO ST. JOSEPH.

11:25:06 WE CAN'T GET PAIN KILLER TO DEAL WITH THE PAIN WE ARE

11:25:08 FEELING EVERY DAY.

11:25:11 BUT WE CAN HELP SOME OTHER FAMILY AND OFFER SUPPORT AND

11:25:12 ALL THIS THAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO.

11:25:15 WE NEED SUPPORT AND HELP FROM EVERYONE AND TAKES ALL

11:25:16 HANDS ON DECK.

11:25:17 IT TAKES EVERYONE.

11:25:18 IT IS NOT EAST TAMPA.

11:25:21 NOT A PATRICIA THING OR A JAY THING.

11:25:24 IT IS ALL OF OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

11:25:25 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU, COUNCILMAN GUDES.

11:25:28 >>ORLANDO GUDES: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS.

11:25:31 MAYBE WE CAN GET WITH OUR NEIGHBORHOOD LIAISON AND

11:25:36 MAYBE THOSE -- GROUPS LIKE T.H.A.N., AND GET A

11:25:38 COALITION LIKE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AND TALKING ABOUT

11:25:41 EVERYBODY IN THE CITY, AND HAVE THOSE ORGANIZATIONS TO

11:25:43 HAVE THAT OUTLET.

11:25:46 WHEN WE HAVE THESE SITUATIONS THAT THEY CAN COME TO.

11:25:50 YOU GOT -- YOU HAVE THE SENIOR GROUPS THAT MEET THREE

11:25:51 TIMES A WEEK OVER THERE.

11:25:54 YOU HAVE A LOT OF THE OTHER COMMUNITY GROUPS WHERE YOU

11:25:56 MIGHT CAN HAVE WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.

11:25:59 WE FIND A FOUNDATION TO BUILD THAT AND HAVE A PLACE

11:26:01 LIKE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO CAN

11:26:05 -- WHO -- WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT AS WELL.

11:26:08 BUT ALSO KNOW HOW TO COMFORT AS WELL.

11:26:11 I THINK THAT MIGHT -- COULD BE A GOOD IDEA.

11:26:13 LET'S TRY.

11:26:15 >> IF I CAN RESPOND TO THAT.

11:26:17 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: PLEASE COME TO THE PODIUM TO GET

11:26:20 YOU ON THE MICROPHONE.

11:26:22 >> SOMETIMES SOMETIMES OUR BOUNDARIES GET IN THE WAY OF

11:26:25 PROGRESS, AND SO WE HAVE TWO FACILITIES.

11:26:26 I TOOK JAY TO ONE OF THEM.

11:26:29 IT IS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE CITY BECAUSE IT IS RIGHTS

11:26:34 THERE BY THE FAIRGROUNDS AND THE CASINO AT KING FORD

11:26:37 AND YOUTH OFFENDERS THAT COMMIT THESE OFFENSES.

11:26:39 WE TAKE THEM THERE AND WORK WITH THEM.

11:26:42 WE WILL KEEP THE DOORS OPEN FOR FAMILIES AND VICTIMS OF

11:26:46 FAMILIES AND IF WE WANT TO CREATE A SCHEDULE AND BRING

11:26:50 MOTHERS AND FATHERS, AND THEY NEED A SPACE TO GRIEVE,

11:26:54 TALK, FELLOWSHIP, WE WILL PROVIDE THAT FOR THEM.

11:26:57 WE HAVE ANOTHER FACILITY IN TOWN OF COUNTRY.

11:27:02 THIS IS BROADER THAN THIS ENTIRE AREA.

11:27:04 WE STAND AT THE READY.

11:27:06 I WILL SAY IT QUIETLY.

11:27:07 WE WILL FEED THEM.

11:27:09 WE WILL MAKE SURE -- WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE OUR

11:27:10 DOORS OPEN.

11:27:13 AND ALL WE NEED IS THE SUPPORT FROM BOTH CITY AND

11:27:17 COUNTY TO SAY BOUNDARIES BE DAMNED.

11:27:19 AND LET -- HERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE THESE

11:27:22 VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND LET'S DO IT TOGETHER.

11:27:23 I AM WITH YOU.

11:27:24 WE NEED MEN STANDING AT THE READY.

11:27:26 WE NEED OUR FAMILIES.

11:27:27 WE NEED SUPPORT.

11:27:29 CRISIS CENTER.

11:27:30 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH.

11:27:31 WE NEED OUR HOSPITALS.

11:27:34 WE NEED OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AND WE CAN

11:27:35 COORDINATE ALL THAT TOGETHER.

11:27:38 WE ARE READY RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW OVER AT OUR TWO

11:27:41 FACILITIES TO PROVIDE THAT SPACE AND WE DON'T WANT TO

11:27:42 BE THE ONES TO DO IT.

11:27:45 WE WANT THE ONES WHO ARE FEELING THAT PAIN TO HELP

11:27:46 THOSE WHO ARE IN PAIN.

11:27:49 AND WE WILL PROVIDE THAT CONNECTION AS WELL.

11:27:53 >> WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, AND I CAN APPRECIATE WHAT YOU

11:27:56 AND THE COUNCILMAN JUST SAID, BUT WE NEED TO BE TALKING

11:27:57 ABOUT PREVENTION.

11:28:01 NOT A WHOLE ANOTHER COALITION OF WHERE WE CAN GRIEVE

11:28:03 AND CRY.

11:28:06 WE -- I AM A PASTOR OF A CHURCH.

11:28:11 WE HAVE A LOT OF OUTLETS AND I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU ARE

11:28:13 DOING BUT MORE ON PREVENTION.

11:28:15 BECAUSE YOU HAVE 12 AND 13-YEAR-OLD KIDS THAT HAVE SEEN

11:28:17 THEIR LOVED ONES MURDERED.

11:28:19 NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE ABOUT IT.

11:28:22 THEIR POSITION IS, I GOT TO GET THAT ONE BEFORE THEY

11:28:23 GET ME.

11:28:26 SO THAT IS WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON.

11:28:29 YES, WE NEED TO DO HAND IN HAND.

11:28:31 BUT I DON'T WANT TO SEE MORE AND MORE PLACE WHERE IS

11:28:32 PEOPLE CAN GO CRY.

11:28:34 I WANT TO SEE SOME HAPPY DAYS.

11:28:38 SO THAT'S WELL AND GOOD, I APPRECIATE IT, BUT I DON'T

11:28:42 WANT IF TO BE LOST ON PREVENTION TO STOP WHAT IS GOING

11:28:42 ON.

11:28:45 AND THE GUNS, WE CAN SHUT IT DOWN BECAUSE WE HAVE GOOD

11:28:49 LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT CAN FIND OUTS AND INFILTRATE HOW

11:28:50 THESE GUNS HAVE DONE.

11:28:56 WE HAVE SEEN A BIG DRUG AND GUN BUY BACK AT THE MALL.

11:28:58 THEY CAN DO UNDERCOVER AND FIND OUT.

11:29:01 IF WE CAN GO -- I ALWAYS SAY IF WE CAN GETS

11:29:05 OSAMA BIN LADEN.

11:29:08 WE CAN FIND THE PEOPLE THAT BRING GUNS INTO THIS CITY.

11:29:11 MISS PATRICIA WANTS TO SAY SOMETHING ELSE.

11:29:13 LET'S NOT LOSE WHY WE ARE HERE.

11:29:15 IT IS ABOUT PREVENTION.

11:29:20 >> MY THING IS TO NOT ONLY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE COME

11:29:23 TO HAVE A PLACE TO TALK.

11:29:28 WHEN I TALK TO FREDDY AND -- I SPOKE TO YOU AS WELL,

11:29:29 KIDS.

11:29:31 REACH THE KIDS NOW WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG NOW BEFORE THEY

11:29:35 GET INFLUENCE AND SEE SOMEBODY AND THEY THINK -- YOUNG

11:29:36 KIDS NOW.

11:29:38 THEY SEE SOMEBODY DOING SOMETHING.

11:29:41 THEY FEEL LIKE THEY WANT TO DO IT TOO BECAUSE IT LOOKS

11:29:42 GOOD TO THEM.

11:29:46 THEY TURN AROUND AND NECESSARYED THEIR WHOLE LIFE AND

11:29:48 THEIR PARENT HAS GOT TO GO THROUGH THE SAME THING I AM

11:29:52 GOING TO BECAUSE I WANT TO REACH THE KIDS NOW TO FIND

11:29:52 SOMETHING FOR THEM.

11:29:55 A PROGRAM.

11:29:58 SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO AS A COMMUNITY AND HELP TO

11:30:00 REACH OUT TO THESE KIDS.

11:30:03 I KNOW BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB AND REC THINGS OUT THERE.

11:30:06 BUT SOME KIDS NEED SOME THINGS TO DO TO GO LIKE ON

11:30:08 FIELD TRIPS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

11:30:09 THINGS LIKE THAT.

11:30:10 THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO DO.

11:30:14 I WANT TO REACH KIDS -- MY BIG THING ARE KIDS.

11:30:16 KIDS.

11:30:18 KEEP SAYING IT OVER AND OVER.

11:30:20 KIDS IS WHAT I AM TRYING TO REACH SO ANOTHER PARENT

11:30:23 WHETHER NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH.

11:30:28 AND NOT ONLY THAT, THE KIDS -- TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON.

11:30:30 THEY HAVE SOMETHING -- TO THINK TWICE ABOUT WHAT THEY

11:30:36 ARE GOING TO DO OUT THERE SO LET ME GET MYSELF TOGETHER

11:30:39 AND MAKE A BETTER LIFE FOR MYSELF AND WHATEVER IT IS.

11:30:44 AND HAVE THE RESOURCES TO GO -- IF NOTHING BUT

11:30:48 COMMUNICATING -- EDUCATIONAL SKILLS, WHATEVER IT IS OUT

11:30:49 THERE FOR THEM TO HAVE.

11:30:50 SOMETHING FOR THE KIDS.

11:30:53 THOSE KIDS DON'T HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER THEM.

11:30:55 OPINION THEY ARE JUST OUT IN THE STREETS AND THEY DON'T

11:30:58 WANT TO GO TO THE PARKS.

11:31:01 NOT ALL THE PARKS ARE BAD, BUT THEY HAVE ANYTHING TO DO

11:31:03 BUT PLAY.

11:31:05 HAVE SOMETHING THAT KEEP THEM BUSY, GOING AND MAKE THEM

11:31:06 SUCCESSFUL.

11:31:08 THAT IS WHAT I WANT FOR THE KIDS.

11:31:11 YOU KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING TO KEEP THEIR MINDS OCCUPIED

11:31:15 SO WHEN I GROW UP -- I DON'T WANT TO BE LIKE JOHNNY.

11:31:19 I WANT TO BE JOE IN THE STREETS BEING IN TROUBLE ALL

11:31:19 THE TIME.

11:31:21 THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

11:31:23 I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

11:31:30 THANK GOD MY KIDS -- THEY HAD AN OPPORTUNITY GO TO THE

11:31:33 BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB AND THEY HAD PROGRAMS AND FIELD

11:31:36 TRIPS, EVEN ON THE WEEKEND TO DO BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL.

11:31:39 I AM NOT SAYING THAT WE DON'T HAVE IT NOW AND THE PARKS

11:31:41 DON'T HAVE IT, BUT SOMETHING TO KEEP THEM GOING

11:31:42 ESPECIALLY THE WEEKENDS.

11:31:45 PARKS ARE CLOSED ON THE WEEKENDS.

11:31:46 GIVE THE KIDS FREE TIME.

11:31:47 SCHOOL WILL BE OUT.

11:31:52 A LOT OF KIDS DON'T GO TO THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB.

11:31:53 THEY ARE NOT GOING TO THE PARKS.

11:31:56 THEY WILL BE RUN THE STREETS.

11:31:59 AND THAT IS WHAT I AM SAYING.

11:32:01 THAT'S ALL THAT I HAVE TO SAY.

11:32:03 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN VIERA.

11:32:06 >>LUIS VIERA: MR. CHAIRMAN, I WANT TO THANK YOU GUYS

11:32:07 FOR COMING.

11:32:11 FRIENDSY AND CHIEF, YOU DO A WONDERFUL JOB, BUT BISHOP,

11:32:12 PATRICIA AND JAY.

11:32:15 I TOLD YOU ALL THIS BEFORE AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN,

11:32:18 THAT THERE IS SO MUCH TO BE SAID ABOUT GOING PUBLIC

11:32:21 WITH SOMETHING THAT IS SUCH A BIG HURT.

11:32:24 THE KIND OF HURT THAT NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND.

11:32:25 >> NOBODY.

11:32:27 >>LUIS VIERA: UNLESS YOU GONE THROUGH IT IN A PUBLIC

11:32:28 FORUM.

11:32:30 AND I APPRECIATE IT 100%.

11:32:38 I KNOW THAT CHIEF O'CONNOR PUT FORTH A MEMO WITH GREAT

11:32:41 IDEAS AND WONDERFUL TO HAVE OUR CITY SUPPORT ACTIVELY

11:32:45 -- CONTINUE TO SUPPORT ACTIVELY WITH BUDGETARY,

11:32:48 MONETARY ASSESSMENT VICTIMS OF CRIMES.

11:32:49 FOR ME A VERY IGNORED ISSUE.

11:32:51 WE DON'T HEAR A LOT ABOUT IT.

11:32:54 WHEN THE MEDIA TALK ABOUT CRIME, -- NO OFFENSE TO THE

11:32:57 MEDIA THAT IS HERE -- I AM NOT DOING A DONALD TRUMP

11:32:59 THING.

11:33:01 WHENEVER THE MEDIA TALKS ABOUT CRIME, IT IS OFTEN ABOUT

11:33:03 THE SCARY PART.

11:33:04 THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS SCARED.

11:33:06 BUT EVERY TIME THERE IS A RAPE, EVERY TIME THERE IS A

11:33:09 MURDER, EVERY TIME THERE IS A ROBBERY, A VICTIM WHO IS

11:33:11 LEFT BEHIND AND SCARED AND WHOSE SECURITY HAS BEEN

11:33:12 VIOLATED.

11:33:16 WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THAT ALL THE TIME.

11:33:18 I ALWAYS SAY, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.

11:33:21 VIOLENT CRIME IS YOUR ISSUE, YOUR CRISIS.

11:33:27 WE SEE A LOT OF STATS IN SULPHUR SPRINGS, EAST TAMPA,

11:33:28 UNIVERSITY AREA, PARTS OF WEST TAMPA.

11:33:34 IF YOU LIVE IN TAMPA PALMS, HUNTERS GREEN, BAYSHORE AND

11:33:35 PALMA CEIA.

11:33:36 IT IS YOUR ISSUE TOO.

11:33:38 AND YOU CAN'T READ ABOUT IT IN THE SECTION OF THE TAMPA

11:33:41 BAY TIMES AND SAY THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM.

11:33:43 I HAVE A GATED COMMUNITY.

11:33:44 IT IS YOUR PROBLEM.

11:33:45 ALL OF YOUR PROBLEMS.

11:33:47 NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.

11:33:51 I WANTED TO PUT THIS FORTH BECAUSE YOUR STORY, YOUR

11:33:52 TEARS, EVERYBODY HAS GOT TO SEE.

11:33:55 I WANT TO SEE OUTRAGE IN OUR CITY.

11:33:58 NOT JUST IN THE AFFECTED PARTS, THROUGHOUT ALL OF OUR

11:33:58 CITY.

11:34:01 THIS SATURDAY, WE HAVE A RISE UP FOR PEACE RALLY.

11:34:06 I WANT TO SEE PEOPLE COME OUT TO THAT, OUTSIDE OF THESE

11:34:09 AREAS FROM TAMPA PALMS, BAYSHORE AND ALL OVER BECAUSE

11:34:13 THERE HAS GOT TO BE SOME OUTRAGE.

11:34:19 THIS IS AN ISSUE OF VALUE AND COMPASSION AND FAMILY AND

11:34:20 EMPATHY.

11:34:24 BUT ALSO AN ISSUE OF SOCIAL JUSTICE.

11:34:27 SOCIAL JUSTICE THAT JUST BECAUSE YOU LIFT SOMEWHERE

11:34:31 DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU OUGHT TO BE A VICTIM OF CRIME.

11:34:34 AND PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIVE IN THOSE AREAS SHOULD BE

11:34:36 OUTRAGED BY IT.

11:34:38 AND THERE IS SOMETHING THAT I ALWAYS SEE A LOT WITH

11:34:42 RISE UP FOR PEACE WHICH IS Y'ALL ENGAGE THE POLICE.

11:34:45 THE POLICE ARE YOUR PARTNERS IN THIS.

11:34:48 SOME PEOPLE SAY DEFUND THE POLICE.

11:34:50 YOU SAY FUND THE POLICE.

11:34:51 IT GIVES THE POLICE.

11:34:52 SUPPORT THE POLICE.

11:34:56 AND THAT, FOR ME, IS -- FOR ALL OF US BY THE WAY UP

11:34:56 HERE.

11:34:59 I KNOW WE ALL AGREE -- ALL MEMBERS OF COUNCIL AGREE

11:35:03 WITH THAT IN SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT.

11:35:05 110%.

11:35:11 SO I SEE SOME VERY GOOD IDEAS THAT I PUT FORTH THAT I

11:35:12 LIKE A LOT.

11:35:20 I LIKE THE ENGAGEMENT WITH THE FRANCISCAN CENTER.

11:35:23 ANN DOUGHTY WHO IS A WONDERFUL PERSON.

11:35:27 THE PART I LIKE IS SEEING THE CITY INVOLVED IN MONETARY

11:35:29 SUPPORTING VICTIMS OF CRIME.

11:35:31 JAY, YOU TALKED ABOUT THIS TO ME.

11:35:34 AGAIN, WE MET A NUMBER OF TIMES AND YOU ALL HAVE TAUGHT

11:35:37 ME A LOT OF THINGS THAT YOU CAN'T KNOW UNLESS YOU HAVE

11:35:39 GONE THROUGH IT OR TALKING TO SOMEBODY WHO HAS GONE

11:35:40 THROUGH IT.

11:35:43 MR. JOHNSON SAID WHEN YOUR KID IS MURDERED.

11:35:45 YOU GOT TO PAY THE MORTGAGE.

11:35:46 YOU GOT TO PAY THE CAR PAYMENT.

11:35:50 YOU GOT TO PAY THE CAR INSURANCE, THE HEATING, THE

11:35:51 ELECTRICITY.

11:35:54 IF YOU WERE WORKING HOUR FOR HOUR AT TARGET,

11:35:57 MCDONALD'S, WALGREEN'S OR WHATEVER, YOU CAN'T MAKE IT

11:35:59 HAPPEN ALL THE TIME.

11:36:03 I WANT TO SEE OUR CITY TO SUPPLEMENT THOSE PROGRAMS SO

11:36:07 THAT WE CONTINUE TO HAVE STAKEHOLDER STATUS IN THIS.

11:36:12 AND I AM APPRECIATE OF THE WORK THAT TAMPA IMPLEMENT

11:36:13 DOES.

11:36:14 ASSISTANT CHIEF HERE.

11:36:18 SOMETHING THAT YOU LIVE 110% EVERY SINGLE DAY.

11:36:21 YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU GO TO A CRIME SCENE, YOU SEE THE

11:36:27 VICTIMS OF CRIME AND CAN'T IMAGINE THE EMOTIONS THAT

11:36:28 GIVE RISE THERE.

11:36:34 I WILL BE MAKING SOME MOTIONS AT THE END.

11:36:37 ANOTHER THING THAT I WILL MAKE A MOTION AND SPEAKING

11:36:39 ABOUT ADMINISTRATION.

11:36:42 I AM ALL ABOUT MEMORIALS, WHAT CAN I SAY.

11:36:44 A MEMORIAL FOR VICTIMS OF CRIME AND VICTIMS OF GUN

11:36:45 VIOLENCE IN OUR CITY.

11:36:57 WE REALLY NEED TO SEE THAT.

11:37:00 WILL THAT DO SOMETHING.

11:37:01 AND PREVENTSING CRIME.

11:37:02 GIVING PEOPLE HOPE.

11:37:05 LAST WEEK WE TALKED ABOUT THE RETURNING CITIZENS

11:37:13 ORDINANCE MAKING SURE PEOPLE GET HOPE AND TRAINING.

11:37:15 THE APPRENTICESHIP ORDINANCE.

11:37:18 YOU NEED TO TALK OF THIS AND HOLISTIC PART OF IT.

11:37:20 BEING TOUGH ON VIOLENT CRIME AND THE CAUSES OF THAT

11:37:25 VIOLENT CRIME.

11:37:28 I WANT EVERYBODY IN TAMPA TO HEAR YOUR STORY.

11:37:31 PEOPLE OUTSIDE AND IN THE AREA WHO KNOW IT 110%.

11:37:34 SO IMPORTANT FOR EMPATHY.

11:37:35 THANK YOU, MR. CHAIR.

11:37:36 AND GOD BLESS YOU.

11:37:39 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN MIRANDA --

11:37:43 >> THE RISE UP FOR PEACE EVENT 90% CHANCE OF RAIN AND

11:37:45 MOVING IT TO THE 21ST THAT WE THINK WILL BE BETTER

11:37:48 BECAUSE THE WEEK BEFORE SCHOOL GETS OUT SO WE THINK WE

11:37:52 WILL GET MORE YOUTH.

11:37:54 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.

11:37:56 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN.

11:37:58 I AGREE WITH MOST OF THE THING THAT COUNCILMAN VIERA

11:38:00 SAID AND I HAVE ONE LITTLE DIFFERENCE.

11:38:06 IF THAT IS SUCCESSFUL UNDERSTAND WHO PASSED AWAY BY GUN

11:38:08 VIOLENCE IS PEOPLE TO HAVE A PERSPECTIVE WHEN YOU SO AT

11:38:11 THE ON TV, A 20 OR 30 SECOND THING BECAUSE SO MANY

11:38:14 THINGS TO COVER ON THE VIDEO THAT IN THE MEMORY, IT

11:38:15 SEES IT.

11:38:21 THE EYE SEES IT, AND THE MIND -- SO MANY THINGS THAT

11:38:23 ARE COMING AT ONE TIME.

11:38:24 THAT IS A FACT, I BELIEVE.

11:38:32 IF PEOPLE SEE IT, THEY WILL UNDERSTAND IT NOT ONE OR

11:38:35 TWO BUT THOUSANDS OF THEM.

11:38:38 THIS COUNTRY HAS AN ENDEMIC.

11:38:40 YOU CAN CURE A EPIDEMIC WITH A VACCINE.

11:38:43 YOU CAN'T CURE GUN VIOLENCE WITH THE VACCINE.

11:38:47 I DON'T HAVE THE COURAGE TO STAND UP AND SAY ABOUT THIS

11:38:48 YOUNG LADY.

11:38:50 MISS PATTY, I NEVER KNEW THAT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR

11:38:51 FAMILY.

11:38:52 I NEVER KNEW THAT.

11:38:55 YOU ENHANCED ME ON SOMETHING THINK THAT DIDN'T KNOW.

11:38:58 THE GENTLEMAN I TALKED TO HIM ONCE OR TWICE.

11:39:00 AND I DIDN'T KNOW THAT EITHER ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.

11:39:04 SO STORIES THAT HAVE TO BE SAID ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE THAT

11:39:14 IT JUST -- THERE ARE NO BOUNDARIES, NO STREET ADDRESS.

11:39:18 AND GUN VIOLENCE.

11:39:23 AN INDIVIDUAL AND SOME PARK AND SOME KID 8, 9, 10 YEARS

11:39:28 OLD WITH A BUNCH OF MONEY AND WHERE DID YOU GET THAT

11:39:29 MONEY.

11:39:30 I SELL DRUGS.

11:39:31 WHY DON'T YOU JOIN ME.

11:39:34 YOU HAVE TWO, FOUR, TEN, YOU HAVE 10,000 OF THEM.

11:39:36 I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING.

11:39:43 BUT WHEN YOU SEE THAT TAKES THE ENERGY.

11:39:45 TAKES THE FAMILY AND BREAKS THEM APART AND THOSE KIDS

11:39:49 ARE HARD TO BE BROKEN BECAUSE THEY SEE THAT MONEY AND

11:39:51 THEY SEE THE GUN AND THEY PUT IT TOGETHER THAT I COULD

11:39:52 BE DRIVING A NEW CAR.

11:39:53 I CAN BE DOING THIS.

11:39:55 I DON'T HAVE TO GET A JOB.

11:39:58 THESE ARE THINGS THAT ARE MEMORIALIZED IN THE MINDS OF

11:39:58 SOCIETY.

11:40:02 AND YOU FOLKS -- THE FIVE OF YOU HERE HAVE DONE SO MUCH

11:40:07 IN THIS LITTLE PIECE OF TIME THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED

11:40:10 HERE THAT'S MORE THAN ANY GRANT CAN AFFORD TO GIVE.

11:40:12 BECAUSE YOU HAVE SAID IT FROM YOUR HEART THAT YOU HAVE

11:40:13 EXPERIENCED IT.

11:40:17 NO ONE IN THIS COUNCIL HERE IS EXPERIENCED -- THAT I

11:40:22 KNOW OF, ANYWAY -- WHAT YOU FOLKS HAVE EXPERIENCED.

11:40:24 SOMETHING TO SAY -- WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TODAY IS

11:40:28 POSSIBLY SETTING THE FOOTPRINT FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN

11:40:29 TO BE BUILT ON.

11:40:31 AND THAT IS WHAT I AM HOPING FOR.

11:40:33 I WILL HELP YOU IN ANY WAY THAT I CAN.

11:40:35 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN CARLSON.

11:40:37 >>BILL CARLSON: THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR STORIES.

11:40:40 I HEARD SOME OF THEM BEFORE, BUT STILL HEARTBREAKING TO

11:40:42 HEAR YOUR STORIES.

11:40:44 THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THEM.

11:40:46 I AM GLAD YOU ARE HERE IN PERSON TO HEAR THEM IN PERSON

11:40:49 INSTEAD OF DOWNSTAIRS ON TV.

11:40:52 THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVOCACY AND VOLUNTEER WORK.

11:40:54 YOU KNOW, TALKING OF SOLUTIONS.

11:40:56 FIRST OF ALL, I AM HAPPY TO MEET YOU ALL.

11:40:59 I MET WITH SOME OF YOU INDIVIDUALLY AND HAPPY TO MEET

11:41:04 WITH YOU AS A GROUP OR INDIVIDUALLY OF WHAT I CAN DO

11:41:05 THROUGH THE COUNCIL TO BE SUPPORTIVE.

11:41:08 NO OTHER PARENT SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH WHAT YOU ALL

11:41:10 WENT THROUGH.

11:41:13 AND I DON'T THINK ANY PARENT CAN HEAR YOUR STORY

11:41:15 WITHOUT FEELING HEARTBREAK.

11:41:19 FOR EACH OF THE LAST THREE YEARS, THIS CITY COUNCIL

11:41:22 HAS SUPPORTED ALL THE REQUESTS THAT THE -- THAT THE

11:41:23 POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS MADE.

11:41:26 AND THAT THE POLICE UNION HAS MADE, INCLUDING IN THE

11:41:28 FACE OF A BUNCH OF PROTESTERS.

11:41:31 WE AGREED TO AN INCREASE IN BUDGET FOR THE POLICE

11:41:32 DEPARTMENT.

11:41:36 BUT DESPITE THAT, THE VIOLENT CRIME RATE IN TAMPA WENT

11:41:39 UP EVERY YEAR FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS AND IT IS JUST

11:41:39 NOT ACCEPTABLE.

11:41:43 THE SOLUTION FOR THE ADMINISTRATION, IN PART, IS TO PUT

11:41:45 IN A NEW POLICE CHIEF.

11:41:47 WE ALL MET WITH HER AND SHE HAS PRESENTED TO US AND WE

11:41:48 ASKED THAT QUESTION.

11:41:50 SHE PRESENTED THE NUMBERS TO US.

11:41:52 THAT IS HOW WE KNEW ABOUT IT.

11:41:54 SHE IS BEING TRANSPARENT IN THAT.

11:41:57 AND SHE HAS IDEAS HOW TO SOLVE THAT.

11:41:58 WE WILL WORK CLOSELY WITH HER.

11:42:01 I KNOW YOU ALL ARE WORKING CLOSELY WITH HER AND LET US

11:42:04 KNOW THE FEEDBACK YOU GET AND IF WE NEED TO TWEAK IT.

11:42:07 THE FINE BALANCE BETWEEN PREVENTING CRIME AND HARMING

11:42:08 CIVIL RIGHTS.

11:42:11 WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T CROSS THAT LINE, BUT WE

11:42:13 OBVIOUSLY NEED TO DO MORE AND NOT JUST ABOUT MONEY

11:42:15 OBVIOUSLY EITHER.

11:42:17 IT IS ABOUT THE PROGRAMS AND POLICIES AND LOOKING AT

11:42:18 THE DATA.

11:42:21 SO PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN BE SUPPORTIVE.

11:42:23 WE DEFINITELY WANT TO HELP YOU IN YOUR MISSION.

11:42:24 THANK YOU.

11:42:26 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

11:42:26 THANK YOU.

11:42:29 ANYBODY IN THE PUBLIC WHO WISHES TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM,

11:42:34 NOBODY IS REGISTERED?

11:42:36 >>LUIS VIERA: MR. CHAIR, MAY I MAKE QUICK MOTION ON

11:42:38 THIS IF NO ONE IS HERE TO SPEAK.

11:42:40 I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

11:42:43 I MOTION FOR A COUPLE OF THINGS, IF I MAY FOR -- AND

11:42:48 WITH TPD WE CAN WORK ON IF THE DATES DON'T WORK.

11:42:51 I REALLY LOVE THIS PLAN PUT FORWARD BY CHIEF O'CONNOR

11:42:53 ON SO MANY LEVELS.

11:42:55 ONE THING THAT I WAS REALLY PUSHING FOR WAS THE

11:42:56 MONETARY SUPPORT.

11:43:00 AND SHE JUST BUILT ON THAT IN A HOLISTIC WAY.

11:43:03 I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS COME BACK MAYBE IN SIX MONTHS

11:46:29 REQUEST WAS SUBMITTED, THE APPLICANT WORKED WITH STAFF

11:46:32 AND THAT INCLUDES MOBILITY STAFF, TRANSPORTATION STAFF,

11:46:34 ZONING ADMINISTRATOR.

11:47:33 DISTRICT REGULATIONS FOR PARKING.

11:47:38 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

11:47:40 FIRST IS THE CDB.

11:47:43 THE CODE SECTIONS HAVE BEEN LISTED THERE FOR REFERENCE,

11:47:47 BUT THIS WOULD MODIFY ONE OF THE CHANGES IS THE -- THE

11:47:52 TABLE THAT IS PROVIDED IN THE CDB, WHICH ACTUALLY

11:47:58 PROVIDES YOU INFORMATION REGARDING EACH STREET TYPE THE

11:48:05 CDB IS ONE OF THE SPECIAL DISTRICTS AND GIVES YOU THE

11:48:06 STANDARDS.

11:48:08 WHAT WE HAVE DONE IS MODIFIED AND SPECIFIED THE

11:49:44 AND WE ASKED TO CONSOLIDATE THE TABLE SO IT IS SIMILAR

11:49:45 TO THE CDB.

11:49:46 SO THAT WAS DONE.

11:49:49 THE APPLICANT CONSOLIDATED THE TABLE.

11:49:51 AND THE NEXT CHANGE THAT WAS MADE IN THE CHANNEL

11:49:55 DISTRICT WAS THE REDUCTION OF THE PARKING RATIOS FOR

11:49:58 THOSE USES IN ITS CHANNEL DISTRICT.

11:50:11 BASED ON THE FEEDBACK FROM THE PUBLIC THE APPLICANT

11:50:14 AMENDED THE REQUEST, AND NARROWED THE REQUEST TO THE --

11:50:17 TO THE CHANNEL DISTRICT AND THE CENTRAL BUSINESS

11:50:18 DISTRICT.

11:50:21 THEN WE WERE BEFORE YOU TODAY FOR THE WORKSHOP.

11:50:23 THE NEXT STEP IS THE PLANNING COMMISSION BRIEFING IN

11:50:24 MAY.

11:50:26 AND THEN THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE PLANNING COMMISSION

11:50:27 IN JUNE.

11:50:30 THIS WILL COME BACK BEFORE YOU, COUNCIL, FOR FIRST AND

11:50:31 SECOND READING.

11:50:34 WE ARE LOOKING AT AN ESTIMATED TIME FRAME OF JULY AND

11:50:34 AUGUST.

11:50:37 SO WITH POSSIBLE FINAL ADOPTION BY AUGUST FOR THIS

11:50:37 REQUEST.

11:50:39 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: WOULD YOU NEED US AFTER EVERYTHING

11:50:43 TO MOVE TO TRANSMIT?

11:50:46 >>LACHONE DOCK: YES, AFTER THE QUESTION AND ANSWER FOR

11:50:51 PRIVATELY INITIATIVE WE WILL MAKE A MOTION TO TRANSMIT.

11:50:53 NEXT SLIDE PLEASE AND TURN IT OVER TO STEPHEN BENSON

11:50:56 FOR AN OVERVIEW OF THE MASTER PLAN.

11:50:59 >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, STEPHEN BENSON WITH CITY

11:51:00 PLANNING.

11:51:05 I WANT TO EMPHASIZE A SHORT SLIDE THAT REPRESENT THE

11:51:10 INFORMATION THAT VIK GAVE TO YOU ON JULY 31.

11:51:13 TELL YOU THAT THE AMENDMENTS WERE THROUGH A

11:51:16 COMPREHENSIVE AND SOUND PLANNING PROCESS.

11:51:19 THERE WAS PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT AND COMPREHENSIVE.

11:51:23 ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE CITY TO DATE INCLUDE ENHANCING ALL

11:51:25 THE DIFFERENT MOBILITY OPTIONS THAT EXIST DOWNTOWN SO

11:51:28 YOU CAN PARK ONCE AND NOT HAVE TO KEEP -- GET IN YOUR

11:51:31 CAR JUST TO PARK AND MOVE A COUPLE OF BLOCKS AROUND

11:51:32 DOWNTOWN.

11:51:38 PRICING ADJUSTMENTS AS WELL TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENT WITH

11:51:41 THE PARKING PROGRAMS AND SYSTEMS.

11:51:44 THIS PRIVATELY INITIATED AMENDMENT.

11:51:47 WORK CLOSELY WITH THE APPLICANT WITH WHAT IS BEING

11:51:48 PROPOSED.

11:51:48 NEXT SLIDE.

11:51:51 WHAT WE WILL LIKE TO DO GOING FORWARD IS TO TAKE THAT

11:51:54 SAME MODEL USED FOR DOWNTOWN THAT WAS SPEARHEADED BY

11:51:57 THE DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP AND APPLY IT CITY WIDE IN

11:52:02 TERMS OF DEVELOPING A CITYWIDE MASTER PLAN.

11:52:05 THE RECOMMENDATIONS WOULD NOT BE THE SAME AND THE

11:52:07 STRATEGIES WOULD NOT BE THE SAME AND ESTABLISH WHAT

11:52:09 THAT WILL BE.

11:52:13 PARKING IS ALWAYS HOT TOPIC OF INTEREST AND ALWAYS

11:52:18 CONCERNS OF PARKING AND LISTENING AND KNOWLEDGE TO

11:52:25 DEVELOP PARKING POLICIES THAT ARE TAILORED AND MAKES

11:52:27 THE MOST SENSE FOR THAT NEIGHBORHOOD.

11:52:30 LONG TERM, WE EXPECT CONTINUE TO BE CHANGES TO CHAPTER

11:52:33 15 FOR THE STREETS AND SIDEWALKS IN THE PARKING -- THE

11:52:36 PARKING REQUIREMENTS AS WELL AS CHAPTER 27 THAT WILL

11:52:38 COME OUT OF THIS PROCESS.

11:52:41 AND TO GET TO THE OUTCOMES WE WANT TO SEE WITH PARKING

11:52:45 WE NEED THREE THINGS, BETTER MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS,

11:52:48 CLEARER AND MORE CONSISTENT COMMUNITY EXPECTATIONS AND

11:52:50 BETTER DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS THAT ALIGN WITH ALL TWO

11:52:52 OF THOSE THINGS AND THAT WILL GET US TO THE PARKING

11:52:54 OUTCOMES THAT WE LIKE TO SEE.

11:52:55 NEXT SLIDE.

11:52:58 AND NOW I WILL PASS IT OVER TO THE APPLICANT TO GO OVER

11:52:59 THEIR PRESENTATION.

11:53:01 AND THE AMENDMENTS.

11:53:05 SO CAIRN KRESS WITH THE DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP.

11:53:05 >> GOOD MORNING.

11:53:07 GOOD MORNING.

11:53:11 JOEL MANN, WHO IS OUR PARKING CONSULTANT.

11:53:14 SHALL BE SHARING THE SCREEN TO GIVE YOU THE

11:53:14 PRESENTATION.

11:53:25 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, WE SEE IT.

11:53:28 >> THIS ISN'T IT YET.

11:53:30 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: MR. MANN, IF YOU CAN SHARE A

11:53:31 SCREEN.

11:53:34 >> I CAN GIVE A PAPER COPY IF I NEED TO.

11:53:35 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: IS HE LOGGED IN.

11:53:40 >>BILL CARLSON: MR. CHAIR, I HAVE TO GO IN SEVEN

11:53:45 MINUTES AND I APOLOGIZE, I WOULD LIKE TO BE IN SUPPORT

11:53:46 OF THIS.

11:53:50 >> I CAN COME BACK AT 1:00 IF YOU PREFER THAT.

11:53:52 >>BILL CARLSON: I AM NOT COME BACK.

11:53:54 BUT IF YOU GET IT DONE BEFORE THAT, I WOULD LOVE TO

11:53:56 VOTE FOR IT.

11:54:00 >> IN THE INTEREST OF TIME, LET ME GO AHEAD AND -- I

11:54:16 AM NOT SURE WHAT YOUR SCREEN IS SEEING NOW.

11:54:28 >> LET'S DO IT THE OLDS FASHIONED WAY.

11:54:30 >> I THINK THAT WILL BE ALL RIGHT.

11:54:34 SORRY FOR WASTING TWO OF THE PRECIOUS SEVEN MINUTES

11:54:35 THERE.

11:54:38 PEOPLE COMPLAINED ABOUT PARKING AND WE KNOW WE NEEDED

11:54:39 TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

11:54:42 THE DOWNTOWN COMPREHENSIVE PARKING LAN.

11:54:45 AND IT HAS BEEN A COUPLE OF YEARS.

11:54:49 A FUN PROJECT AND INCLUDED STAKEHOLDER OUTREACH.

11:54:51 AND CONSENSUS BUILDING.

11:54:55 AND, AGAIN, THESE CODES WERE SUBMITTED -- THIS CODE

11:54:58 LANGUAGE WAS SUBMITTED ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO AND ALREADY

11:55:01 FEELS A LITTLE BIT STALE.

11:55:04 BUT STILL RELEVANT AND STILL KIND OF -- THE BABY STEPS

11:55:07 IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

11:55:09 SO, YOU KNOW, WE TRY TO STAY IN TUNE WITH EVERYTHING

11:55:14 THAT THE MAYOR'S TEAM IS TRYING TO DO WITH THE T 3

11:55:16 RECOMMENDATIONS.

11:55:21 WE HAD A MAP DONE THAT SHOWED ALL OF THE AREA WE HAVE

11:55:22 FOR PARKING.

11:55:25 THIS DOESN'T EVEN INCLUDE THE STREETS.

11:55:28 SO I AM NOT NECESSARILY CONVINCE $THAT PARKING IS OUR

11:55:32 HIGHEST AND BEST USE IN OUR DOWNTOWN.

11:55:36 YOU CAN COME SO SIMILAR CONCLUSIONS.

11:55:39 AND WE NEED TO KNOW WHERE ALL OF THE PARKING IS IN OUR

11:55:44 DOWNTOWN, AND HAVE IT ALL IN THE SPREADSHEET, WHO

11:55:49 MANAGES IT, WHO OWN IT IS AND THE POSSIBILITY OF IT AND

11:55:50 THAT SORT OF THING.

11:55:52 WE HAVE ALL THAT MAPPED OUT.

11:55:54 AND THEN WE DID THE FUN PART.

11:55:59 WE GOT OUR STEPS IN AND COUNTED HOW MANY CARS WERE IN

11:56:02 THE PARKING LOT AND GARAGE.

11:56:04 DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY AND WEEK.

11:56:13 AND WE CAME TO SOME CONCLUSION AND MUCH TO EVERYONE'S

11:56:15 SURPRISE, THERE IS AVAILABLE PARKING.

11:56:17 AT THE TIME THE SOLUTION TO THE DOWNTOWN PARKING

11:56:19 PROBLEM WAS THE CITY NEEDS TO BUILD A NEW PARKING

11:56:28 GARAGE.

11:56:32 AND DO A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY AND 6,000 EMPTY PARKING

11:56:33 SPACES IN OUR DOWNTOWN.

11:56:36 NOW ARE THOSE PARKING SPACES WHERE YOU WANT THEM TO BE.

11:56:40 AND ARE YOU ABLE TO ACCESS THOSE PARKING SPACES.

11:56:45 IS THERE A BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO MAYBE SHARE THOSE

11:56:46 PARKING SPACES.

11:56:48 YEAH, WE HAVE SOME OPPORTUNITIES.

11:56:51 BUT WE DID FIND THAT WALKING.

11:56:56 YOU KNOW GOOD OLD-FASHIONED WALKING IS PROBABLY A

11:56:57 REALISTIC SOLUTION.

11:57:01 LET ME GIVE YOU SOME SAMPLE WALKING DISTANCES IN YOUR

11:57:01 DOWNTOWN.

11:57:04 YOU ALL THE ARE FAMILIAR WITH YOUR DOWNTOWN, BUT YOU

11:57:07 CAN WALK FROM -- YOU KNOW, SOME PARKING AVAILABILITY TO

11:57:10 THE CORE OF DOWNTOWN IN TEN MINUTES.

11:57:13 YOU KNOW, I THINK PEOPLE NEED TO JUST KIND OF KEEP UP

11:57:15 WITH THE FACT THAT TAMPA IS REALLY A BIG CITY NOW AND

11:57:18 WE HAVE TO GET OUT OF OUR OLD HABITS.

11:57:21 YOU GUYS KNOW ALL OF THIS.

11:57:23 I AM NOT SHOWING YOU ANYTHING NEW.

11:57:27 WHEN YOU THINK OF HOW COMPACT OUR DOWNTOWN IS.

11:57:30 A PRETTY FAIR REQUEST AND TO PARK LITTLE BIT ON WHAT

11:57:33 THE PERIMETER MIGHT BE.

11:57:36 AND CUSTOMERS DON'T REALLY HAVE INCENTIVES TO ASK FOR

11:57:37 ANYTHING DIFFERENT.

11:57:42 THE CITY AS STEPHEN BENSON MENTIONED, THE CITY HAS MADE

11:57:45 A BUNCH OF MOVES WHEN THIS STUDY WAS PUBLISHED TO TRY

11:57:47 TO KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES.

11:57:51 LOOKING AT BROADENING THE WAY YOU CAN PAY FOR PARKING.

11:57:52 KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.

11:57:56 SO YOU HAVE BETTER PARKING INFORMATION WHEN YOU COME TO

11:57:58 DOWNTOWN.

11:58:00 AND.

11:58:05 A HYBRID PARKING PASS AND THE HYBRID ENVIRONMENT SO YOU

11:58:08 DON'T NECESSARILY NEED A MONTHLY PARKING SPACE ANYMORE.

11:58:10 A MINUTE ABOUT THE TOPIC OF DEVELOPMENT AND PARKING

11:58:12 AVAILABILITY.

11:58:14 THERE ARE SOME SURPRISING FACTS IN HERE.

11:58:16 WELL, YOU PROBABLY KNOW THIS.

11:58:20 YOU ARE MORE IN TUNE FOR MORE PEOPLE, BUT PARKING HAS A

11:58:23 HUGE IMPACT ON HOUSING THAT IS AFFORDABLE.

11:58:25 A VERY STRONG RELATION.

11:58:28 INTUITIVELY, CONSTRUCTIONS GO WAY UP TO BUILD PARKING

11:58:31 AND LET'S REMEMBER THAT LESS SPACE FOR LIVING VERSUS

11:58:35 STORAGE FOR CARS IS LIKELY SACRIFICE.

11:58:41 I HAVE A GOOD VISUAL OF THAT IN A SECOND.

11:58:45 HERE ARE SOME FACTS AND FIGURES ON THE COST OF PARKING.

11:58:49 YOU KNOW, WHAT IF IT WAS UNBUNDLED.

11:58:51 WHAT IF YOU PAID FOR YOUR RENT SEPARATE FROM YOUR RENT

11:58:54 FOR LIVING VERSUS YOUR RENT FOR YOUR CAR.

11:58:57 I THINK THAT WILL HELP A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH

11:58:58 AFFORDABILITY.

11:59:02 IT DOESN'T KIND OF COME BUNDLED IN WITH YOUR LEASE.

11:59:05 SO HERE IS A GOOD GRAPHIC THAT SHOWS YOU HOW MANY

11:59:08 SQUARE FEET YOU NEED FOR TWO PARKING SPACES AND HOW

11:59:11 MANY SQUARE FEET YOU NEED FOR A TWO-BEDROOM APARTMENT.

11:59:16 THEY ARE ABOUT THE SAME.

11:59:20 WHAT HAS ALL THESE CONTRIBUTED TO.

11:59:23 AND FEEL THAT THE DEVELOPER IN THE MARKET HAVE TO

11:59:25 OVERBUILD PARKING.

11:59:28 YOU ALL ARE ON BOARD WITH THE FACT THAT WE NEED TO

11:59:31 START MAKING BABY STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND THE

11:59:35 CITY STAFF CAN MAKE THAT GO WITH A MORE CITYWIDE LOOK.

11:59:37 AGAIN, WE INVOLVE BOTH THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR IN

11:59:40 BOTH COMING UP WITH THE SOLUTIONS AND CONTINUING ON

11:59:42 WITH THE SOLUTIONS.

11:59:45 THIS TALKS ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT.

11:59:47 THERE IS A ROLE FOR ALL OF US IN THIS INCLUDING THE

11:59:50 PRIVATE PARKING OPERATORS WHO HAVE BEEN A GOOD PARTNER

11:59:52 SO FAR ON THIS.

11:59:55 SO WE ARE HERE IN THIS STEP.

11:59:58 THE ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES TO CORRECT THE MARKET.

11:59:59 SORRY.

12:00:01 I AM REALLY GOING FAST THROUGH THIS.

12:00:02 I THINK YOU ALL HAVE A COPY.

12:00:05 I WANT TO YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT ALONE.

12:00:09 THIS SLIDE IS ALSO A LITTLE BIT OUTDATED, BUT TAMPA IS

12:00:10 NOT LEADING.

12:00:11 WE ARE CATCHING UP ON THIS.

12:00:14 THIS IS KIND OF AN OVERVIEW OF THE CITIES THAT HAVE

12:00:16 ELIMINATED ALL THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS AND ANOTHER

12:00:19 PATH THAT YOU CAN CHOOSE TO TAKE AND REDUCE THE AMOUNT

12:00:22 AT LEAST IN THE DOWNTOWN AND URBAN CORES.

12:00:25 SO NOW GETTING INTO KIND OF THE BULK OF WHAT THE CODE

12:00:27 CHANGES ARE.

12:00:32 BASICALLY TO KIND OF SUMMARIZE IT, WE CUT EVERYTHING IN

12:00:32 HALF.

12:00:35 WE ARE NOT NECESSARILY SAYING PARKING MAXIMUMS SO THE

12:00:39 DEVELOPERS CAN ONLY BUILD SO MUCH, BUT THEY ARE AT

12:00:41 LEAST SAYING IF THEY DON'T WANT TO BUILD SO MUCH, THEY

12:00:43 SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT.

12:00:47 THAT GOES TO THE DIFFERENT TABLES ON THAT.

12:00:49 THEY CAN SAY THAT THE CODE IS A VERY COMPLICATED BASE

12:00:53 AND DON'T ENVY THAT TRYING TO UNDERSTAND ALL OF THAT.

12:00:54 LEARNED A LOT.

12:00:57 WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE PARKING A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBLE.

12:01:00 SO, FOR INSTANCE, FOR ONE, INSTEAD OF BUILDING ONE

12:01:03 VEHICLE SPACE, YOU CAN PUT TWO MOTORCYCLES IN THERE AND

12:01:07 FOUR OR MORE BICYCLES AND GIVING THE DEVELOPMENT

12:01:09 COMMUNITIES A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBILITY HOW THEY MEET THE

12:01:12 PARKING REQUIREMENTS.

12:01:16 ALMOST DONE.

12:01:22 SO -- THE NEXT STEPS FOR WHAT WE NEED TO BE DOING.

12:01:23 LET ME JUST GET CAUGHT UP.

12:01:26 LET ME GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE BECAUSE IT STARTS TO TALK

12:01:28 MORE SPECIFICS TOO.

12:01:31 THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY IS NOT CAPPED WITH WHAT THEY

12:01:31 PROVIDE.

12:01:33 MEANING NO MAXIMUMS.

12:01:35 THAT IS AN OPTION FOR YOU TO DO.

12:01:36 SOME CITIES HAVE DONE THAT.

12:01:41 BUT WE DID -- WE DID ELIMINATE MINIMUM -- PARKING

12:01:45 MINIMUMS FOR SERVICES SUCH AS RETAIL, PHARMACIES AND

12:01:45 RESTAURANTS.

12:01:49 WE HAVE AN EXTENSIVE NETWORK OF ON-STREET PARKING THAT

12:01:50 SHOULD MEET THE DEMANDS.

12:01:53 HERE IS SLIDES WITH THE OVERALL FLAVOR OF WHAT WE ARE

12:01:54 TRYING TO DO.

12:01:58 TRYING TO ADD ALTERNATIVE METHODS TO ADD THE PARKING

12:01:59 REQUIREMENTS.

12:02:02 MOTORCYCLES, BIKE PARKING, THAT SORT OF THING.

12:02:05 IF A DEVELOPER WANTS TO HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE PARKING

12:02:08 STUDY TO SHOW THAT WE DON'T NEED AS MANY PARKING

12:02:11 SPACES, AN ALLOWANCE FOR THAT AS WELL.

12:02:12 SECOND TO LAST SLIDE.

12:02:19 AND THEN AS LACHONE MENTIONED STREAMLINING SOME OF IT,

12:02:22 A LOT OF TABLES AND LANGUAGE AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

12:02:26 TRYING TO MAKE IT LITTLE EASIER TO READ AND FOLLOW.

12:02:29 AND JUST THIS LAST SLIDE IS JUST -- SOME FUTURE STEPS

12:02:31 FOR YOU TO CONSIDER.

12:02:33 AGAIN, THIS INFORMATION THAT WE SUBMITTED FEELS A

12:02:36 LITTLE BIT RUST TOW ME AND YOU MIGHT EVEN TAKE IT

12:02:38 FURTHER THAN YOU SUGGESTED WE GO.

12:02:43 WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP MOVING THAT NEEDLE AND A LOT OF

12:02:44 OTHER SUGGESTIONS ON THERE.

12:02:46 COULD YOU POTENTIALLY EVEN JUST REMOVE ALL OF THE

12:02:49 PARKING REQUIREMENTS AND LET THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

12:02:50 DECIDE WHAT THEY WANT TO DO.

12:02:53 I DON'T WANT TO LECTURE YOU.

12:02:56 YOU ARE UP TO SPEED ON ALL OF THESE THINGS BUT I WANT

12:03:00 AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUGGEST WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP.

12:03:01 I WENT A MINUTE OVER.

12:03:02 SORRY.

12:03:04 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: AGREE WITH EVERYTHING THAT YOU

12:03:06 PRESENTED.

12:03:11 THE LIMITATION OF OR REDUCTION OF PARKING MINIMUMS BY

12:03:14 50% IN THIS CASE WILL HELP TO MOVE OUR CITY OR CENTRAL

12:03:16 BUSINESS DISTRICT FORWARD TO WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE

12:03:18 BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY WILL OWN A CAR.

12:03:23 WE TO PROMOTE WALKABILITY AND PROMOTE USE OF BICYCLES.

12:03:25 AS YOU DESCRIBED DOWNTOWN.

12:03:28 I WENT TO CHURCH AND PARKED NEAR SACRED HEART AND

12:03:32 DECIDED TO WALK DOWNTOWN, ALL THE WAY TO THE PUBLIX IN

12:03:33 THE CHANNEL DISTRICT TO UNION STATION.

12:03:36 I JUST WANTED -- THE JACKSON HOUSE, WHATEVER.

12:03:38 IT IS NOT A BAD WALK.

12:03:42 AND IT WAS HOT, AND IT WASN'T MISERABLE AND DOABLE AND

12:03:45 WE NEED TO PROMOTE THAT AND IT IS GREAT.

12:03:46 COUNCILMAN CARLSON.

12:03:48 YOU WANT TO SAY ANYTHING?

12:03:50 >>BILL CARLSON: EXCELLENT PRESENTATION.

12:03:52 CAN WE VOTE TO TRANSMIT.

12:03:53 HE IS GOING TO MAKE THE MOTION.

12:03:59 IF -- YEAH, MY QUESTION IS WHETHER WE CAN VOTE NOW.

12:04:01 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN CITRO WANTS TO MAKE THE

12:04:02 MOTION TO TRANSMIT.

12:04:04 >>JOSEPH CITRO: A MOTION TO TRANSMIT.

12:04:06 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: SECOND FROM COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.

12:04:09 ALL IN FAVOR.

12:04:12 ANY OPPOSED?

12:04:12 ALL RIGHT.

12:04:14 ALL RIGHT.

12:04:19 >>JOSEPH CITRO: MAY I SAY BRIEFLY, MISS KRESS, THANK

12:04:19 YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK.

12:04:23 YOU AND I HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR YEARS AND

12:04:26 COMING TO FEW SIGNIFICANCES.

12:04:31 MR. VIK BHIDE, MR. BENSON, THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN

12:04:31 THIS.

12:04:35 THIS WILL HELP LIVING DOWNTOWN MORE AFFORDABLE AND

12:04:36 CONVENIENT.

12:04:38 I AM GOING TO SAY THIS THOUGH.

12:04:44 THE LINCHPIN IN THIS IS GOING TO BE, HOPEFULLY, WHEN

12:04:47 THE TRANSPORTATION GOES THROUGH WE CAN HAVE CIRCULATORS

12:04:50 RUNNING THROUGH OUR DOWNTOWN SO THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAY, I

12:04:53 DON'T WANT TO PARK FIVE BLOCKS AWAY.

12:04:56 THEY CAN SAY, OKAY, I WILL PARK THAT FIVE BLOCKS AWAY

12:04:59 AND JUMP ON THE CIRCULATOR TO WHERE WE NEED TO ABOUT

12:05:00 GO.

12:05:01 >> LOVE IT.

12:05:03 >>JOSEPH CITRO: THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK.

12:05:05 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.

12:05:06 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THANK YOU.

12:05:10 GLAD YOU WENT TOO CHURCH HERE ON SUNDAYS; HOWEVER, I

12:05:13 WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE WHO GO TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY

12:05:14 HAVE FREE PARKING.

12:05:18 MAIDS THAT ARRANGEMENT A WHILE BACK AND NOTHING TO DO

12:05:19 WITH THAT.

12:05:23 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: FREE PARKING UNTIL 2 P.M.

12:05:25 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: I UNDERSTAND THAT BUT DURING THE

12:05:27 CHURCH HOURS.

12:05:30 >> THAT WAS A FAIR COMPROMISE.

12:05:31 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

12:05:32 APPRECIATES IT.

12:05:36 NEXT TIME YOU WALK, DON'T WEAR YOUR SUNDAY DAY SHOES.

12:05:39 YOU WILL GET SORES.

12:05:42 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: DID I HAVE SNEAKERS ON?

12:05:43 GOOD POINT.

12:05:44 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

12:05:49 YES, MA'AM.

12:05:52 KAREN KRESS.

12:05:55 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THE DEPARTMENT BUILDING DOWNTOWN.

12:05:56 >> NO RELATION.

12:05:59 >>LACHONE DOCK: LACHONE DOCK, CITY PLANNING.

12:06:02 IF I CAN HAVE THE STAFF PRESENTATION BACK UP AND ERIC

12:06:04 WILL GO AHEAD AND PRESENT TO YOU THE PUBLICLY INITIATED

12:06:08 AMENDMENTS AND WE WILL WRAP IT UP WITH THE SCHEDULING,

12:06:11 THANK YOU.

12:06:18 >> ERIC COTTON: GOOD MORNING, ERIC COTTON -- GOOD

12:06:21 AFTERNOON, ERIC COTTON.

12:06:23 A POWERPOINT.

12:06:24 I HAVE MINE PRINTED OUT.

12:06:25 OKAY, THANK YOU.

12:06:26 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

12:06:32 THESE ARE PUBLICLY INITIATED AMENDMENTS PRIMARILY FROM

12:06:32 STAFF.

12:06:36 SOME ARE RELATED TO CHANGES IN FLORIDA STATUTE THAT WE

12:06:37 ARE GETTING CAUGHT UP WITH.

12:06:40 OTHERS ARE INITIATED BY STAFF TO MAKE OUR CODE READ

12:06:43 BETTER AND FLOW BETTER.

12:06:48 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

12:06:50 INITIATED AS A RESULT OF CHANGES BY THE FLORIDA

12:06:51 STATUTE.

12:06:53 FIVE ARE INITIATED BY STAFF.

12:06:54 NEXT SLIDE.

12:06:57 THIS IS JUST A LIST OF THE THINGS THAT ARE CHANGING IN

12:06:58 THE CODE.

12:07:01 SO THESE ARE ALL OF THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS THAT ARE

12:07:03 GOING TO BE TOUCHED BY THE CHANGES.

12:07:04 NEXT SLIDE.

12:07:07 THE FIRST CHANGES TO COMMERCIAL VEHICLES IN RESIDENTIAL

12:07:10 DISTRICTS.

12:07:12 THIS IS NOT PART OF THE SLIDE PRESENTATION, I BELIEVE.

12:07:16 I JUST WANT TO -- SWITCH THIS REAL QUICK AND GO BACK TO

12:07:19 THE PRESENTATION.

12:07:20 SCOOT THIS UP.

12:07:22 SO EVERYBODY CAN SEE IT.

12:07:26 WE ARE CHANGING THREE DEFINITIONS IN THE CODE AS IT

12:07:27 STANDS RIGHT NOW.

12:07:30 RIGHT NOW COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT IS DEFINED BUT DOESN'T

12:07:33 INCLUDE A CAVEAT FOR THINGS THAT ARE PERSONAL VEHICLES.

12:07:36 SO WE ARE BREAKING THAT OUT AND HAVE A DEFINITION FOR

12:07:36 COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT.

12:07:39 WE ARE PULLING OUT AND CREATING A DEFINITION OF

12:07:41 PERSONAL VEHICLES TO INCLUDE THE VEHICLES THAT PEOPLE

12:07:42 ACTUALLY DRIVE.

12:07:45 SOME FOR THEIR BUSINESSES, SOME FOR THEIR OWN -- YOU

12:07:49 KNOW, SOME PEOPLE DRIVE LARGE PICK-UP TRUCKS THAT MAY

12:07:51 TRIGGER ALMOST BEING A COMMERCIAL VEHICLE.

12:07:53 AND COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENTS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS THAT

12:07:57 WILL ALLOW, RIGHT NOW, IF YOU ARE -- TO CLARIFY, IF YOU

12:07:59 WERE DROPPING SOMEONE OFF AT SOMEONE'S HOUSE.

12:08:05 LOWE'S DELIVERING A DISHWASHER OR WASHING MACHINE, THEY

12:08:08 CAN BE PARKED THERE FOR AN HOUR FOR TO INSTALL IT.

12:08:11 AND IF YOU WERE DRIVING, IF YOU DRIVE A COMMERCIAL

12:08:14 VEHICLE, NO GREATER THAN 9 X 22.

12:08:18 LIKE A FULL-SIZE $PICKUP TRUCK AND YOU PARK IT ON YOUR

12:08:20 OWN PERSONAL PROPERTY BECAUSE OF A PLUMBING COMPANY.

12:08:22 PARK IT AT MY HOUSE.

12:08:25 I WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT WITHOUT CITED FOR CODE

12:08:27 ENFORCEMENT FOR THAT VIOLATION.

12:08:29 LET ME GO BACK TO THE PRESENTATION.

12:08:32 >>JOSEPH CITRO: MR. COTTON, DOES THAT INCLUDE HAVING

12:08:40 SIGNAGE OR NOT HAVING SIGNAGE ON THAT VEHICLE IN.

12:08:46 >>ERIC COTTON: I WILL HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE PRESENTATION -- AND

12:08:48 I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM DOING AT THIS POINT.

12:08:51 I AM NOT SURE WHAT BUTTON IT IS.

12:08:54 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: PARKING IN RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS

12:08:57 LIKE A NEW AIR CONDITIONER IS BEING INSTALLED AND THEY

12:08:59 ARE THERE FOR A FEW HOURS.

12:09:02 BEYOND THE JOB THAT THEY ARE THERE TO DO.

12:09:05 >>ERIC COTTON: NOT JUST TO PARK IT THERE AND WALK

12:09:07 AROUND TO DO WHAT THEY ARE THERE FOR.

12:09:10 SPECIFICALLY FOR WHAT THEY ARE THERE FOR.

12:09:11 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: OKAY.

12:09:13 >>ERIC COTTON: DID I LOSE THE PRESENTATION?

12:09:15 OKAY, THANK YOU, GUYS ARE ARE IN THE BACK.

12:09:17 NEXT IS FOOD TRUCKS.

12:09:20 THIS IS ALSO -- A CHANGE BASED ON FLORIDA STATUTE.

12:09:24 THE STATE PREEMPTED US FROM REGULATING FOOD TRUCKS.

12:09:27 CURRENTLY A SPECIAL USE IN THE CODE AND WE HAD TO GO

12:09:30 THROUGH AT SPECIAL USE PROCESS AND DID NOT DEFINE FOOD

12:09:32 TRUCKS AND ADDING A DEFINITION THAT IS MIMICKING THE

12:09:34 DEFINITION OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

12:09:37 A MOBILE FOOD DISPENSING VEHICLE WHICH IS ANY VEHICLES

12:09:41 THAT LICENSED OF A PUBLIC SERVICE FOOD ESTABLISHMENT

12:09:44 THAT IS SELF-PROPELLED OR OTHERWISE MOVABLE AND ABLE TO

12:09:47 MAINTAIN ITS OWN UTILITIES.

12:09:47 WATER.

12:09:52 POWER FOR THE -- POWER FOR THE -- FOR THE COOKING AND

12:09:55 ALL THIS --

12:09:58 NOT SUPPOSED TO PLUG IT IN OR BRING AN EXTRA GENERATOR

12:10:01 TO BE PLACED ON THE PROPERTY.

12:10:04 NONE OF THAT WILL TAKE PLACE.

12:10:07 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: COUNCILMAN CITRO.

12:10:09 >>JOSEPH CITRO: JUST TO BE SPECIFIC.

12:10:11 ON-STREET PARKING WITH PARKING LOTS.

12:10:16 >> THE FOOD TRUCK IS ONLY REGULATING PRIVATE PROPERTY.

12:10:19 FOOD TRUCK SHOULD NOT BE PARKED IN THE PUBLIC RIGHT

12:10:19 AWAY.

12:10:24 AND THE MAYOR'S FOOD TRUCK RALLY THAT IS OPERATED BY

12:10:25 THE --

12:10:27 >>JOSEPH CITRO: THE FOOD TRUCK WILL NEED A PARKING

12:10:30 PERMIT ON STREET PARKING RIGHT-OF-WAY.

12:10:32 >>ERIC COTTON: THIS DOES NOT ADDRESS THIS.

12:10:35 THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY AT ALL.

12:10:36 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: MR. CHAIRMAN, I HATE TO BRING THIS

12:10:41 UP, BUT NOW WE ARE REMEMBERED NOW.

12:10:42 BEHIND THE HOUSE.

12:10:45 IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE.

12:10:46 CAN'T BE FROM THE YARD FORWARD.

12:10:51 CAN BE FROM THE POINT OF THE 20-FOOT BACK.

12:10:53 YOU CAN'T PARK A BOAT IN THE CITY STREET.

12:10:55 AND EVEN WITH THE WALL IN THE FRONT.

12:10:58 NOW WE ARE SAYING THAT WE CAN HAVE A FOOD TRUCK IN THE

12:10:58 FRONT.

12:11:02 >> THE FOOD TRUCK IS ON COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES.

12:11:04 MICHELINI MIRANDA BUT THE FOOD TRUCK AND PARKING.

12:11:06 I AM NOT AGAINST ANYTHING THEIR SAYING.

12:11:08 PROVIDING IT DOESN'T UPSET SOMETHING ELSE.

12:11:11 AND RIGHT NOW THE BOATS -- IF I REMEMBER, WE PASSED AN

12:11:14 ORDINANCE A YEAR OR SO AGO.

12:11:16 THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR BOAT IN YOUR BACK YARD OR IN

12:11:20 AN AREA WHERE IT CAN NOT BE SEEN IN THE STREET.

12:11:21 AM I CORRECT OR NOT.

12:11:22 >>ERIC COTTON: YES, SIR.

12:11:23 THAT IS NOT CHANGING.

12:11:25 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: TELL ME ABOUT THE FOOD TRUCK.

12:11:27 >>ERIC COTTON: THIS IS FOR FOOD TRUCKS.

12:11:30 THE TYPICAL FOOD TRUCK YOU SEE AT A PARKING LOT IN

12:11:33 FRONT OF A HOME DEPOT AND LOWE'S.

12:11:34 AND THE ONES THAT ARE DOWNTOWN.

12:11:37 THEY WERE -- THEY WERE PREEMPTED FROM REGULATING THOSE

12:11:38 FROM THE STATE.

12:11:41 SO WE ARE DEVELOPING LANGUAGE TO SPECIFICALLY ADDRESS

12:11:42 FOOD TRUCKS.

12:11:45 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THEY CAN PARK IT ON THEIR PROPERTY

12:11:46 IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE.

12:11:47 >>ERIC COTTON: NO, SIR.

12:11:50 THOSE WILL BE BIGGER THAN A TYPICAL VEHICLE.

12:11:53 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: I WANTED CLARITY.

12:11:56 >>ERIC COTTON: 9 X 22.

12:11:57 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: THANK YOU.

12:11:59 YOU ANSWERED THE QUESTION.

12:12:01 >>ERIC COTTON: NEXT CHANGE IS FOR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE

12:12:02 ENFORCEMENT.

12:12:07 RIGHT NOW THE CODE REQUIRES US TO GIVE 30 DAYS NOTICE.

12:12:11 DOWN TO 15 DAYS IN THE EVENTS OF A HEALTH SAFETY ISSUE.

12:12:13 THE BONUS PROVISIONS FOR GRAY WATER.

12:12:17 THIS, AGAIN, RESULTS OF A STATE STATUTE CHANGING TO

12:12:20 ADDRESS BONUS DENSITIES PROVIDING 100%.

12:12:25 OR 75% OF GRAY WATER TO YOUR -- TO THE PROPOSED

12:12:26 DEVELOPMENT.

12:12:30 AND 25 -- YOU CAN GET A BONUS INTENSITY -- DENSITY OF

12:12:31 25%.

12:12:34 IF YOU ARE 100% SERVICE TO GRAY WATER YOU CAN GET A 30%

12:12:37 UP IN YOUR DENSITY.

12:12:39 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: EXPLAIN WHAT GRAY WATER IS TO THE

12:12:40 PUBLIC.

12:12:43 >>ERIC COTTON: GRAY WATER FOR THOSE NOT FAMILIAR WITH

12:12:46 THE TERM IS BASICALLY RECYCLED WATER.

12:12:48 CITY HAS IT IN SOME AREAS.

12:12:51 THE COUNTY HAS IT IN SOME AREAS.

12:12:54 WATER THAT IS TREATED FOR LANDSCAPING USING POTABLE

12:12:55 WATER.

12:12:57 NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

12:12:58 HOME-BASED BUSINESS IS.

12:13:02 THIS, AGAIN, AS A RESULT OF THE STATE PREEMPTING LOCAL

12:13:03 GOVERNMENTS.

12:13:04 THIS WAS A CHANGE.

12:13:07 WE ARE REDEFINING WHAT A HOME-BASED BUSINESS IS.

12:13:09 AND WE ARE GOING TO BE AMENDING.

12:13:11 RIGHT NOW WE REQUIRED AS A SPECIAL USE, WE WILL BE

12:13:15 MOVING IT AND EXPANDING THE LANGUAGE UNDER SPECIFIED

12:13:16 USES.

12:13:19 SOME OF THE CHANGES IN THAT -- SO COUNCIL WILL BE AWARE

12:13:23 IS THE STATE NOW CURRENTLY AND THE CITY DOES NOT ALLOW

12:13:28 FOR OUTSIDE INDIVIDUALS WORKING AT AN OUTSIDE.

12:13:31 AND TWO INDIVIDUALS WHO DO THE NOT LIVE AT THE

12:13:32 RESIDENCE TO BE THERE.

12:13:35 ALLOWS FOR SOME COMMERCIAL VEHICLES AND COMMERCIAL

12:13:36 EQUIPMENT TO BE ON-SITE.

12:13:39 SO THIS IS -- WE ARE TRYING TO BRING OUR CODE IN

12:13:42 COMPLIANCE WITH WHERE THE STATE IS AND REGULATE IT AS

12:13:43 MUCH AS WE CAN.

12:13:44 YES, SIR.

12:13:44 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: SORRY.

12:13:48 I AM NOT TRYING TO TAKE ANY WIN WIND OUT OF YOUR SAIL

12:13:49 OR ANYTHING.

12:13:57 BUT WHEN WE HAVE SOME ORDINANCES THAT SAID YOU CAN OR

12:14:00 RENT A RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY FOR FIVE DAYS, BED AND

12:14:02 BREAKFAST.

12:14:04 YOU HAVE TO RENT IT FOR FIVE DAYS.

12:14:10 >>ERIC COTTON: AIRBNBS FOR SEVEN DAYS, YES, SIR.

12:14:11 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: SOME OF THE COMPLAINTS AT THE

12:14:12 OFFICE.

12:14:15 MOST OF THE TIME IT IS NOT SEVEN DAYS BUT TWO OR THREE

12:14:22 DAYS.

12:14:25 AND HOW CAN WE KEEP UP ON THE DEMAND OF CHECKING ON

12:14:30 THESE THINGS.

12:14:32 >>ERIC COTTON: CODE ENFORCEMENT IS ACTIVE IN

12:14:33 REGULATING THIS.

12:14:35 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: I AM NOT SAYING THEY ARE NOT.

12:14:38 >>ERIC COTTON: WE WANT TO CONVEY TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO

12:14:42 OPERATE A AIRBNB USE BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE ON A WEEKLY

12:14:44 BASIS.

12:14:46 YOU RENT IT ON MONDAY, TUESDAY.

12:14:49 YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ADVERTISING FOR IT TO RENT

12:14:54 UNTIL MONDAY AND TUESDAY.

12:14:57 AND THE LAST PERSON TO MOVE OUT TO MOVE IN.

12:15:00 CODE ENFORCEMENT LOOKS AT THE WEB PAGE AND CONTACT THE

12:15:03 INDIVIDUALS WHEN THEY ARE ADVERTISING FASTER THAN THAT.

12:15:06 PLUS, BELIEVE ME, WE GET PLENTY OF PHONE CALLS IN THE

12:15:10 ZONING OFFICE WHO DO COMPLAIN OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

12:15:12 A PREEMPTION FROM THE STATE.

12:15:16 WHATEVER WE HAD ON THE STATE WHEN THEY PREEMPTED THAT

12:15:17 CAN REGULATE.

12:15:19 SO THAT IS NOT CHANGING THE WAY --

12:15:21 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: I AM NOT SAYING THEY ARE NOT DOING

12:15:26 A GOOD JOB, BUT I AM SAYING SOMETIMES SO MANY OF THOSE

12:15:30 THINGS -- SEMI PARKED ON THE CITY STREET NOT FOR ONE

12:15:32 BUT TWO OR THREE DAYS.

12:15:35 SOME TRACTOR-TRAILERS PARKED IN THE FRONT LAWN FOR

12:15:37 THREE DAYS, IF IT IS A HOLIDAY, THEY ARE THERE.

12:15:41 AND THAT HAS A LONG-TIME EFFECT ON THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

12:15:42 >>ERIC COTTON: I AGREE.

12:15:45 UNDER THE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE, IT IS NOT ALLOWING

12:15:47 SOMEONE TO PARK A SEMI IN FRONT OF THEIR HOUSE.

12:15:49 THAT WILL STILL BE A VIOLATION.

12:15:52 NEXT SLIDE I BELIEVE IS NUMBER 6.

12:15:56 THIS IS, AGAIN, A RESULT OF A STATE PREEMPTION.

12:16:01 THE STATE OF FLORIDA -- IN THE FLORIDA BUILDING CODE

12:16:05 PASSED A PREEMPTION THAT WOULD PROHIBIT LOCAL

12:16:08 GOVERNMENTS FROM REGULATING DESIGN STANDARDS EXCEPT IN

12:16:11 HISTORIC DISTRICTS AND WITHIN CRAS.

12:16:15 EXCEPT IN CASES WHERE THE CITY HAS A DEVELOPMENT REVIEW

12:16:15 COMMITTEE.

12:16:18 SO WHAT WE ARE DOING IS CHANGING OUR DRC, DEVELOPMENT

12:16:19 REVIEW COMPLIANCE.

12:16:23 WE ARE CHANGING SOME LANGUAGE IN THAT TO HAVE LANGUAGE

12:16:29 THAT WILL MAKE IT WHERE CITYWIDE NOW, BECAUSE WE HAVE

12:16:34 THE DRC, OUR EXISTING OVERLAY DISTRICTS, SEMINOLE

12:16:36 HEIGHTS CODE WILL STILL BE ABLE TO BE ENFORCED.

12:16:38 THAT IS ANOTHER CHANGE.

12:16:41 NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

12:16:46 THIS IS THE CODE SECTION FOR TRANSFER OF DEVELOPMENT

12:16:49 RIGHTS WHEN SOMEBODY CAN TAKE -- THEY HAVE EXCESS

12:16:52 SQUARE FOOTAGE ON A PIECE OF PROPERTY AND THEY CAN SELL

12:16:54 IT TO MOVE TO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

12:16:58 THE CODE DID NOT SPECIFY THE PROCESS FOR THAT AND THAT

12:17:01 IS WHERE THIS LANGUAGE IS COMING IN TO MAKE A FORMAL

12:17:04 DECISION REQUIRED, AND WE ARE FLIPPING TWO SENTENCES.

12:17:08 WHEN THE CODE WAS AMENDED A FEW YEARS AGO, THEY WERE --

12:17:11 THE SECTION JUST ADDED A SENTENCE AND MOVING A SECTION

12:17:14 THAT SAYS NO WAIVERS TO THESE REQUIREMENTS AS THE LAST

12:17:15 SENTENCE.

12:17:18 SO PEOPLE CAN'T GET WAIVERS TO ALLOW THINGS TO BE IN

12:17:19 CERTAIN AREAS.

12:17:23 JUST A CLEANUP ON THAT SECTION.

12:17:25 NUMBER 8 IS STREET CAFES.

12:17:29 THIS IS AN OUTGROWTH TO LOOK UP LOCAL.

12:17:30 IS GOING TO BE CODIFIED.

12:17:34 THIS IS COMING TO -- TO CITY COUNCIL IN CHAPTER 22,

12:17:37 WHICH IS FOR THE SIDEWALK.

12:17:40 AND THIS WILL DETERMINE SPECIFIC STANDARDS IF YOU HAVE

12:17:44 A SIDEWALK CAFE, YOU CAN UTILIZE CITY PROPERTY, USUALLY

12:17:48 ONE OR TWO PARKING SPACES TO EXPAND YOUR OUTDOOR

12:17:49 SEATING AREA.

12:17:51 THAT GETS CHANGED.

12:17:53 IT EXPIRES IN JUNE.

12:17:57 OR I BELIEVE JUNE 1.

12:18:01 AND THIS -- THE GOAL IS TO HAVE THIS GO ACTIVE JULY 1.

12:18:03 A TEXT AMENDMENT THAT IT IS COMING TO YOU.

12:18:05 DOESN'T NEED TO GO THROUGH THE REGULAR PLANNING

12:18:09 COMMISSION PROCESS, NOT A LAND USE CHANGE BUT A CHAPTER

12:18:10 22 CHANGE.

12:18:11 NEXT SLIDE.

12:18:12 STOREFRONT RESIDENTIAL.

12:18:14 THIS WILL BE A CHANGE TO THE CODE.

12:18:18 RIGHT NOW IN THE NMU, NEIGHBORHOOD MIXED USE IN THE

12:18:20 SEMINOLE HEIGHTS DISTRICT WE HAVE PARKING STANDARDS FOR

12:18:24 STOREFRONT RESIDENTIAL USES WHICH ARE RETAIL OR OFFICE

12:18:27 ON THE FIRST FLOOR AND RESIDENTIAL USUALLY ABOVE.

12:18:29 WE DON'T HAVE STANDARDS FOR PARKING FOR THE RESIDENTIAL

12:18:32 FOR THAT SPECIFIC USE IN OUR CODE.

12:18:35 FOR THE GENERAL PART OF THE CITY AND ADDING THAT

12:18:38 LANGUAGE IN TO REQUIRE ONE PARKING SPACE PER RESIDENT

12:18:40 AND THE REQUIRED PARKING THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE

12:18:43 REQUIRED FOR THE RETAIL OR OFFICE USE.

12:18:46 AND THEN THE LAST ONE, WHICH IS ANOTHER STAFF INITIATED

12:18:50 REQUEST OPINION THIS IS FOR FORMAL DECISIONS.

12:18:52 I WANT TO USE THIS AS AN EXAMPLE.

12:18:57 MR. CITRO, FROM YOUR TIME ON THE VRB WILL PROBABLY

12:18:59 RECOGNIZE SOME OF THESE THINGS.

12:19:01 GO BACK TO THIS.

12:19:05 THIS IS A -- THIS IS THE SOUTHERN LOT OF THE LOT SPLIT.

12:19:07 THIS IS THE NORTHERN PORTION.

12:19:12 THE EXISTING HOUSE IS -- NEEDS TO BE SEVEN FEET FROM

12:19:15 THAT PROPERTY LINE AND THIS EXAMPLE IS LIKE TWO OR

12:19:16 THREE FEET AWAY.

12:19:19 INSTEAD OF MAKING THAT PERSON COME BEFORE THE VRB AND

12:19:23 ASK FOR A VARIANCE TO ESTABLISH HARDSHIP, THIS WILL

12:19:27 ALLOW THE ZONING ADMINISTRATOR THROUGH THE PROCESS TO

12:19:32 RECOGNIZE THIS SETBACK TO HAVE THIS LOT DEVELOP.

12:19:34 WHAT HAPPENS WITH A VARIANCE, ONCE THE BOARD SAYS YOU

12:19:36 CAN HAVE A REDUCTION FROM SEVEN DOWN TO TWO, IF

12:19:39 SOMEBODY IN THE FUTURE KNOCKS THIS HOUSE DOWN, THEY CAN

12:19:42 BUILD TO THAT SAME FOOTPRINT THAT IS ON THIS NOW THAT

12:19:44 WILL ENABLE THEM TO KEEP THAT REDUCED SETBACK INSTEAD

12:19:48 OF HAVING -- MEETING THE REQUIREMENT OF THE SEVEN-FOOT

12:19:50 SIDE YARD.

12:19:52 I KNOW I WENT THROUGH THAT VERY RAPIDLY AND YOU HAVE

12:19:53 COUNCIL TONIGHT TOO.

12:19:56 DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME?

12:19:59 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME.

12:20:01 ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WISH TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM.

12:20:02 COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.

12:20:04 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: ONE THING -- AND ANOTHER THING IS

12:20:07 WHEN YOU SEE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT ARE SPLITTING HOUSES

12:20:10 AND HAVING MORE AND MORE PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE.

12:20:14 AND I SEE CARS PARKED ALL OVER THE LAWN.

12:20:16 ANY PROHIBITION AGAINST THAT?

12:20:19 >>ERIC COTTON: THE ILLEGAL LOT SPLIT.

12:20:22 WHEN PEOPLE DIVIDE THEIR LOT AND HAVE THREE UNITS

12:20:23 INSTEAD OF ONE.

12:20:25 >>CHARLIE MIRANDA: DON'T GO THERE -- YOU WON'T BE ABLE

12:20:27 TO RETIRE IN YOUR LIFETIME.

12:20:30 YOU WILL NEED TEN TIMES TO FINISH THAT ONE.

12:20:33 BUT CARS PARKED ON THE RIGHT-OF-WAYS -- IN OTHER WORDS,

12:20:35 WE SEE THESE NO PARKING SIGNS.

12:20:39 I GUESS ALL OF US HAVE SEEN THEM AND SEEN CARS PARKED

12:20:42 THERE AND NEVER SEEN ONE TICKET GIVEN TO THEM.

12:20:43 NOT ONE.

12:20:45 IN ALL MY 28 YEARS HERE.

12:20:46 NOT ONE.

12:20:48 IF NOT, TAKE THE SIGNS DOWN.

12:20:51 >>ERIC COTTON: THAT IS AN ENFORCEMENT ISSUE.

12:20:58 TALK TO CODE ENFORCEMENTS, MOBILITY OR TPD ON THAT ONE.

12:20:59 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, MA'AM, PLEASE STATE YOUR

12:21:00 NAME.

12:21:03 >> KAREN KRESS, TAMPA DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP.

12:21:07 WHAT THEY ARE CALLING STREET CAFES REFER TO AS

12:21:08 PARKLETS.

12:21:11 AND WE PUT FOUR OF THEM IN OUR DOWNTOWN AND VERY

12:21:14 SUCCESSFUL AND I'M HERE TO SUPPORT ON KEEPING THE

12:21:16 STREET CAFE PROGRAM GOING.

12:21:18 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: NEXT SPEAKER.

12:21:19 STATE YOUR NAME, YES, SIR.

12:21:23 >> ANDREW MOORE, 1901 WEST AILEEN STREET.

12:21:27 I'M HERE BEFORE YOU BECAUSE OF AMBIGUITY.

12:21:33 OUR NEIGHBORHOOD HAD A LONG-TIME PARKING PROBLEM

12:21:36 STARTING IN 2017 AND WE ASKED SEVERAL TIMES FOR HELP.

12:21:38 WE HAVE BEEN TOLD BY THE CITY ATTORNEYS AND STAFF DO

12:21:42 THIS AND YOUR PROBLEM WILL DISAPPEAR.

12:21:45 WE HAVE LOBBIED TO HAVE ORDINANCES OF THE CODE MOVE

12:21:48 FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER PLACE.

12:21:51 WHERE THINGS ARE TWEAKED.

12:21:55 AND OUR PROBLEMS NEVER SEEM TO GO AWAY.

12:21:59 I HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH ONE OF THE CHANGES THAT HAVE

12:22:02 BEEN PRESENTED FOR PRESIDENT PUBLIC, THE TEXT

12:22:02 AMENDMENTS.

12:22:09 I WANTED TO SHOW THAT AND EXPLAIN THAT TO YOU TODAY.

12:22:13 IF YOU GUYS CAN PULL UP THE ELMO, PLEASE.

12:22:14 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: HERE WE GO.

12:22:18 YES, SIR.

12:22:21 >> THE PROPOSED CHANGE IS ASKING FOR TWO DEFINITIONS TO

12:22:22 BE CHANGED.

12:22:24 ONE DEFINITION TO BE CHANGED.

12:22:26 AND ONE DEFINITION TO BE ADDED.

12:22:29 CURRENTLY NO DEFINITION FOR PERSONAL VEHICLE IN THE

12:22:31 DEFINITION SECTION.

12:22:37 THIS PERSONAL VEHICLE DEFINITION IS AM BIG GUICE --

12:22:42 AMBIGUOUS AND I WILL EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS PROBLEM WITH

12:22:43 MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

12:22:45 WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH COMMERCIAL VEHICLES PARKING IN

12:22:48 OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SINCE 2017.

12:22:52 NOW THAT THE DEFINITION WILL BE MACHINERY, COMMERCIAL

12:22:58 CONTAINERS, FURNISHINGS AND TRAILERS AND BOXED TRUCKS

12:23:03 OWNED AND INTENDED FOR COMMERCIAL BURNS.

12:23:06 THE PART OMITTED THERE THAT IS CROSSED OUT, EXCEPT FOR

12:23:10 PERSONAL VEHICLE, CAR, ONE-TON PICKUP USED BY AN

12:23:13 INDIVIDUALS FOR TO AND FROM HOME AND THE JOBSITE IS NOT

12:23:15 CONSIDERED COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT, REGARDLESS OF

12:23:17 COMMERCIAL NAMES AND INSIGNIFICANCE KNEE YAS.

12:23:22 I WOULD LIKE TO COME BACK TO THIS IN JUST A SECOND.

12:23:25 THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE SEE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

12:23:28 THIS PROPERTY IS ZONED RESIDENTIAL.

12:23:32 THIS PROPERTY IS ZONED OFFICE GC AND ONLY ALLOWED FOR

12:23:33 TWO VEHICLES.

12:23:37 WE SEE TONS OF VEHICLES THAT STACK UP ON THIS SIDE

12:23:37 DAILY.

12:23:39 AND HERE WE ARE AT THE RESIDENTIAL ENTRANCE TO OUR

12:23:40 NEIGHBORHOOD.

12:23:43 IF THERE WAS ANY QUESTION TO WHETHER THIS LAND WAS

12:23:47 ZONED RSC-50.

12:23:48 THIS IS THE ZONING MAP.

12:23:52 THIS IS THE TRIANGLE WHERE YOU SEE THE TWO VEHICLES

12:23:53 PARKED HERE.

12:23:56 THIS IS WHERE YOU SEE ALL OF THE -- ALL OF THE

12:23:57 COMMERCIAL VEHICLES PARKED.


12:23:58 THE REASON THAT THIS IS AMBIGUOUS, THESE ARE DEFINITIONS.

12:23:59 THE DEFINITIONS OF PERSONAL VEHICLE IS A VEHICLE OTHER THAN

12:24:00 COMMERCIAL VEHICLES, RECREATIONAL VEHICLES, AND UTILITY

12:24:03 TRAILERS LISTED AS A PRIVATE VEHICLE FOR OPERATION ON

12:24:07 STREETS.

12:24:08 AND HERE IS THE AMBIGUOUS PART.

12:24:11 IT MAY INCLUDE BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO AUTOMOBILE PRIVATE

12:24:14 PICKUP TRUCKS AND VANS.

12:24:19 AND ADD, THAT MAY INCLUDE --

12:24:21 >>> KEEP GOING, KEEP GOING.

12:24:23 [BELL SOUNDS]

12:24:24 >> THESE VEHICLES WILL NOW BE INCLUDED AS A PERSONAL VEHICLE

12:24:27 BECAUSE THEY ARE OWNED PRIVATELY, THEY OPERATE ON COMMERCIAL

12:24:30 STREETS, AND THEY ARE VANS.

12:24:38 WOULD NEVER ASK FOR A -- THIS IS SOMETHING EITHER THROWN IN

12:24:42 BY STAFF OR COUNTY OR CITY ATTORNEY.

12:24:46 I WANT THE AMBIGUOUSNESS TAKEN OUT OF THIS.

12:24:49 I WANT TO MAKE IT SO THESE VEHICLES THAT ARE ON RESIDENTIAL




12:24:52 PROPERTY THAT ARE CLEARLY COMMERCIAL VEHICLES CAN'T PARK

12:24:55 THERE.

12:24:59 WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE WITH THE COUNCIL.

12:25:01 MY NEIGHBORHOOD HAS BEEN HERE MANY TIMES.

12:25:03 WE HAVE ASKED FOR HELP WITH THIS.

12:25:04 I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT'S ALWAYS AN ISSUE AND WHY

12:25:08 AMBIGUITY ALWAYS FINDS ITS WAY, AND THEN CODE ENFORCEMENT OR

12:25:14 WHOEVER CANNOT HANDLE THE PROBLEM.

12:25:17 AND I ASK YOU TODAY, WHEN YOU DO THESE TYPES AMENDMENTS,

12:25:21 THAT YOU MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE VERY CLEAR IN WHAT THESE

12:25:24 ARE, AND WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR.

12:25:27 SO THAT WE ARE NOT HERE AGAIN ASKING FOR HELP.

12:25:30 AND IT'S NOT JUST MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

12:25:32 IT'S ALL OVER WEST TAMPA.

12:25:34 I SEE IT IN ARMORY GARDENS.

12:25:38 I TALK TO THE PEOPLE OVER AT RIVERVIEW GARDENS.

12:25:42 I SEE IT IN MR. GUDES' DISTRICT.

12:25:44 I SEE IN THE YOUR DISTRICT.

12:25:48 MR. MANISCALCO.

12:25:49 I SEE IT EVERYWHERE.

12:25:51 AND I KNOW PEOPLE WANTS HELP WITH IT.

12:25:52 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: YES, SIR.

12:25:53 THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

12:25:55 COUNCILMAN GUDES.

12:25:55 >>ORLANDO GUDES: [OFF MICROPHONE] THE GENTLEMAN JUST




12:26:13 POINTED SOMETHING OUT.

12:26:14 WILL YOU ELABORATE?

12:26:18 >>ERIC COTTON: DEVELOPMENT COORDINATION.

12:26:20 THIS IS GOING BACK TO THE DEFINITION OF COMMERCIAL VEHICLE.

12:26:25 THE VEHICLES THAT MR. MORRIS SHOWED IN THE PHOTOS, THOSE

12:26:29 WOULD BE COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT, BECAUSE THEY ARE VEHICLES

12:26:36 OWNED, USED, DESIGNED OR INTENDED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

12:26:39 THAT IS THE CLEAR DEFINITION.

12:26:40 THOSE VEHICLES ARE OWNED BY A COMMERCIAL ENTITY.

12:26:44 THEY ARE NOT PARKED IN THE -- THEY ARE OWNED BY COMMERCIAL

12:26:48 BUSINESS, THEY ARE USED FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

12:26:52 AND IF YOU LOOK -- IF WE ALLOW THE COMMERCIAL COMING INTO

12:26:55 RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS.

12:26:58 IN NONE OF THESE CASES, IT'S LIKE THEY ARE NOT DELIVERING

12:27:00 GOODS TO A CONSUMER, BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST PARKED THERE IN

12:27:03 THE MORNING.

12:27:04 AND THEN THE SECOND PART WOULDN'T FALL INTO PLACE BECAUSE AS

12:27:11 FAR AS I KNOW NONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR THAT BUSINESS

12:27:14 SPECIFICALLY LIVE THERE.

12:27:15 THEY ALL LIVE ELSEWHERE.

12:27:17 THEY TAKE THEIR VEHICLES HOME OR WHATEVER THEY DO WITH THEM

12:27:19 AT NIGHT. IN THAT SPECIFIC CASE IT DOESN'T -- IT'S NOT

12:27:22 GOING TO GET TRIGGERED.

12:27:24 THOSE ARE NOT CONSIDERED PERSONAL VEHICLES.

12:27:26 AND WHEN I SPOKE DURING ONE OF THE OTHER PRESENTATIONS, AND




12:27:30 I CAN GO BACK BEYOND, SIMONE WAS WORKING ON THIS, SHE'S BACK

12:27:37 IN JULY, JUNE, IF COUNCIL WISHES, WE CAN PULL THIS AND MOVE

12:27:42 IT FORWARD TO THE NEXT CYCLE WHICH WILL BE THE JUNE CYCLE OR

12:27:47 JULY CYCLE, OR WE CAN MOVE FORWARD.

12:27:50 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: HOW MUCH TIME WOULD YOU HAVE TO MAKE A

12:27:54 CHANGE?

12:27:55 >>ERIC COTTON: WE CAN MAKE A CHANGE -- WE CAN KEEP THIS ON

12:27:59 TRACK.

12:28:00 I CAN TALK TO SIMONE WHEN SHE COMES BACK AND MAKE THIS

12:28:03 CHANGE.

12:28:04 IN THE NEXT LANGUAGE IF COUNCIL WOULD WANT TO REMOVE THE

12:28:09 "MAY INCLUDE" PORTION.

12:28:11 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: MR. MORRIS HAS BEEN WAITING YEARS.

12:28:15 I HEARD ABOUT THIS IN 2017.

12:28:18 I GOT REELECTED, AND IT'S STILL THE SAME SITUATION.

12:28:21 HE CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER.

12:28:23 THE NEIGHBORHOOD CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER.

12:28:24 WE GET CALLS CONSTANTLY.

12:28:27 AND IT'S NOT JUST THIS.

12:28:29 WE HAVE ISSUES WITH COMMERCIAL VEHICLES THROUGHOUT THE

12:28:31 ENTIRE CITY.

12:28:31 HE MENTIONED IT.

12:28:32 I KNOW COUNCILMAN GUDES HAS HEARD IT.

12:28:35 COUNCILMAN MIRANDA.

12:28:36 EVERYBODY, YOU KNOW.




12:28:37 BECAUSE IT'S ALL OVER THE PLACE.

12:28:38 SO YOU CAN MAKE THE CHANGES AND KEEP IT ON TRACK.

12:28:43 AS HE HAS STATED.

12:28:45 BECAUSE THOSE ARE CLEARLY COMMERCIAL WITH COMMERCIAL LOGOS,

12:28:48 AND I'M SURE THEY ARE WRITTEN OFF AS BUSINESS EXPENSES AND

12:28:51 THE COMMERCIAL EVERYTHING.

12:28:55 IT'S PRETTY CUT AND DRY.

12:28:58 >>ERIC COTTON: OKAY.

12:28:58 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE CHANGES

12:29:03 BETWEEN NOW AND FIRST READING?

12:29:05 >>ERIC COTTON: YES, SIR.

12:29:05 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: ANYBODY ELSE?

12:29:13 YES, MA'AM?

12:29:13 >>LACHONE DOCK: CITY PLANNING.

12:29:16 IF I CAN HAVE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

12:29:18 SO NEXT WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE PROCESSES, AND THE NEXT STEPS.

12:29:22 SO WHAT WE WILL DO IS SCHEDULE A PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING,

12:29:25 AND WE WILL HOLD THAT MEETING WITH THE PUBLIC.

12:29:28 YES, THANK YOU.

12:29:29 AND THEN WE WILL GO TO PLANNING COMMISSION FOR BRIEFING.

12:29:32 AND THEN FROM THERE, IN MAY.

12:29:34 AND THEN WE HAVE A PLANNING COMMISSION PUBLIC HEARING.

12:29:37 AND THE CHANGES THAT WE SPOKE ABOUT THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE

12:29:41 MADE ON THIS LAST AMENDMENT, WE CAN CERTAINLY INCORPORATE

12:29:43 IT, BRING IT TO COUNCIL FOR FIRST READING, AND IF ADDITIONAL




12:29:48 CHANGES ARE NEEDED AT THAT POINT, WE COULD STILL MAKE THE

12:29:51 CHANGES, AND THEN IT WOULD JUST -- DELAY SECOND READING IF

12:29:55 NEEDED BUT THERE'S STILL TIME.

12:29:57 THEN THE SECOND READING WOULD BE AROUND AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER

12:30:02 WITH FINAL ADOPTION ON THE SET OF PUBLIC INITIATED

12:30:06 AMENDMENTS.

12:30:07 SO I WOULD ASK COUNCIL IF YOU COULD PLEASE MAKE A MOTION TO

12:30:11 FOR STAFF TO TRANSMIT THE PUBLICLY INITIATED AMENDMENTS TO

12:30:14 THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

12:30:16 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: OKAY, WE DON'T HAVE A COUNCIL MEETING

12:30:18 JULY 11th.

12:30:19 IT'S 14th.

12:30:20 >>LACHONE DOCK: I STAND CORRECTED.

12:30:24 >>GUIDO MANISCALCO: WE HAVE A MOTION FROM COUNCILMAN GUDES.

12:30:26 DOES INCLUDE THE REVISIONS? WITH THE REVISIONS AS STATED
