Mayor O'Neal asked why the proposed bills were substituted.  Dan Wichmer, City Attorney, responded one of the items that needed to be included in the deblighting process was to close out the plan for each project.  He added when the initial draft was created the properties were deblighted, but closing out the redevelopment plan was omitted.  Mr. Wichmer noted the substitute bills will deblight the properties and close the redevelopment plans.  Greg Burris, City Manager, noted the explanation sheets in the original versions were correct.

CITY MANAGER REPORT AND RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS RAISED AT THE SEPTEMBER 19, 2011 AND SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 MEETINGS.

 

 

Greg Burris, City Manager, responded all questions had been answered.   Mr. Burris noted the City has filed a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) challenging new EPA stormwater regulations. He added the City’s environmental and legal experts believe the new rules on flows known as “total maximum daily loads (TMDL)” are unattainable.  Mr. Burris noted these new rules are designed to limit the amount of pollutant that flows into streams, adding the EPA is charged with identifying those pollutants. He added in the new TMDL’s no pollutant was identified, however the EPA is asking a handful cities, including Springfield and Columbia, to significantly reduce stormwater flow in general.   He added a news release with more detail about the lawsuit is available at www.springfieldmo.gov.  Mr. Burris noted the 2nd annual Jazz Festival was held this weekend.  He added the festival drew a crowd of hundreds.  Mr. Burris noted the Taste of Springfield and Oktoberfest were held on Saturday, October 1 and drew a crowd of approximately 10,000.  He added the events were held on Park Central Square.  Mr. Burris noted the Police Department reported very few incidents during the Oktoberfest event, and stated they were pleased with the tone of the crowd.  Mr. Burris noted the Mustang Pedestrian Bridge ribbon-cutting will be held on Monday, October 10, 2011 at 9:30 a.m.  Mr. Burris noted 2011 was titled the Year of the Smoke Alarm by the Fire Department.  He added they surpassed their goal for installing smoke alarms and he commended the Fire Department and their private sector partners for their work and help with this project.  Mr. Burris noted four Springfield businesses were recently recognized at the 2011 Governor’s Conference on Economic Development.  He added the awards received demonstrate the vitality and forward momentum of the business community within Springfield.  Mr. Burris noted Intuitive Web Solutions was the recipient of the Governor’s Entrepreneur of the Year award.  He added the Discovery Center of Springfield was awarded the Governor’s Community/Redevelopment award.  Mr. Burris noted Haul-Away America received the Governor’s Exporter of the Year award.  He added SRC Holdings Corporation was awarded the Governor’s Innovative Industry Training award.  Mr. Burris noted the Springfield Branson National Airport was recently awarded the Airport Safety Enhancement award from the Federal Aviation Association (FAA).  He added they earned the award by having a perfect score for three consecutive years during FAA’s annual safety inspections.  These inspections review factors such as: runway pavement condition, airfield marking, lighting, emergency plans, and the readiness of the airport fire department.

Matthew Schaeffer, Planning and Development Department, gave a brief overview of the proposed bills.  He noted in June 2011 staff presented a blight and redevelopment area report at a Council luncheon, which outlined all of the blighted areas and redevelopment plans currently in place throughout the City.  He added one of the recommendations from that report was to annually review all of the redevelopment areas and prepare Council action for those areas that have been fully redeveloped and rehabilitated.  Mr. Schaeffer noted after that report was presented staff reviewed all the redevelopment areas, adding the proposed bills include the six areas that were found to no longer be considered blighted.  He added staff requests Council declare those areas free of blight and repeal the redevelopment plans.   Mr. Schaeffer pointed out the different locations included in the proposed bills on the overhead map.  He gave a brief overview of the blight history of each of the proposed properties.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky asked if staff has reviewed all of the blighted areas to see which areas could be deblighted.  Mr. Schaeffer responded affirmatively, adding staff reviewed all of the redevelopment areas and the proposed six projects were found to be completed.   He added there may be a couple in the near future that will be brought before Council for deblighting, however several projects won’t be brought to Council for about nineteen years.

 

Mayor O'Neal asked for an example of the full tax assessment for other redevelopment areas.  Mary Lilly Smith, Director of Economic Development, noted the four properties that came back on the tax rolls in 2010, University Plaza Hotel, Hammons Office Building, One Parkway Place, and the Federal Courthouse, in 2009 had an assessed value of $3,923,940 and in 2010 the assessed value was $8,390,000.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky asked if the redevelopment areas automatically go back on the tax rolls after fifteen years, or do they wait until they are deblighted.  Mr. Schaeffer responded the County Assessor keeps track of that and they automatically go into full assessment after twenty-five years.

 

 

 

An opportunity was given for citizens to express their views of the proposed Council Bills.  With no appearances, the public hearing was closed.

 

 

 

The following bills appeared on the agenda under First Reading bills:

 

 

 

Council Bill 2011-231 and Council Bill 2011-232 were read and discussed simultaneously.

 

 

Brownfields Cleanup

Sponsor: Compton.  Council Bill 2011-231. A special ordinance amending the budget of the City of Springfield, Missouri for the Planning and Development Department for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 in the amount of $400,000 for Brownfields Cleanup.  (Staff recommends approval.)

 

                                       

Brownfields Environmental Cleanup

Sponsor: Compton.  Council Bill 2011-232. A special ordinance amending the budget of the City of Springfield, Missouri for the Planning and Development Department for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 in the amount of $600,000 for Brownfields Environmental Cleanup.

 

 

 

Olivia Hough, Planning and Development Department, gave a brief overview of the proposed.  She noted Council Bill 2011-231 will amend the budget to receive a $400,000 grant from the Environmental Improvement Energy Resource Authority (EIERA).  She added the proposed grant would be used for environmental clean-up of hazardous substances on a property located at 1420 W. College Street along historic Route 66.  Ms. Hough noted the aforementioned property was identified as a key property for stormwater improvements with the Jordan Creek realignment project, as outlined in the Jordan Creek Stormwater study underway with the Corps of Engineers.   She added there is no cost-share requirement with the proposed grant.  Ms. Hough noted the project areas in the proposed bills are very near each other, geographically speaking.  She added the proposed properties will be connected by a future greenway trail.  Ms. Hough noted Council Bill 2011-232 will accept three $200,000 grants from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to complete cleanup in the future Jordan Valley West Meadows sites 5, 6, and 7.  She noted the funds received from these three grants require a 20% cost-share that would be funded through the level property tax stormwater requisition fund.  Ms. Hough noted these three grants will allow for the extension of cleanup efforts west, and help to make significant progress on this project.

 

Mayor O'Neal asked if the proposed grants link to the lawsuit the City has filed against the EPA.  Greg Burris, City Manager, responded the City received several grants from the EPA for Brownfields cleanup due in large to work done by Ms. Hough and the Planning and Development Department.  He added the lawsuit is a community wide issue, not contained to the properties included in the proposed.  Mr. Burris noted the remediation included in the proposed is found to be the most effective way to clean the site before the stormwater carries it downstream.

 

Councilman Burlison asked for clarification regarding accountability as far as the progress of these grant projects   Ms. Hough responded staff work, throughout the entire cleanup process, with environmental consultants and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to make sure that all contaminants that need to be removed are being removed.  She added the environmental consultants will submit a closure report that details how the cleanup was done and will be submitted to DNR for review.

Sponsor: Rushefsky.  Council Bill 2011-234. A resolution granting a liquor license to Well-Fed Neighbor Cooperative, LLC dba Well-Fed Neighbor Market, located at 1925 E. Bennett Street, Ste. E-F, Springfield, Missouri.

 

 

 

Dan Wichmer, City Attorney, gave a brief overview of the proposed.  He noted the proposed is an application to sell liquor in the original package at the Well-Fed Neighbor Market located at 1925 E. Bennett Street, Suite E-F.  He added there is a church located within the 200-foot requirement.  Mr. Wichmer noted staff has spoken with the applicant and he informed the City that he had spoken with the aforementioned church and they do not object to his application.  He added staff has not received any correspondence from the church.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky moved to table the proposed until additional information is received from the applicant.  The motion failed due to the lack of a second.

 

Councilman Ibarra asked Mr. Wichmer if the church was notified of the proposed request.  Mr. Wichmer responded the Licensing Department sends out a 10-day notification.  He added he spoke with the applicant last week who informed him that he had spoken with the pastor of the church and that the church would not object to the application.  Councilman Ibarra asked what the distance required by State statute is.  Mr. Wichmer responded 100-feet.   Mr. Ibarra asked what the distance required by the City is.  Mr. Wichmer responded the “local option” allows the City to extend up to 300-feet.  He added several years ago 200-feet was chosen as the City’s distance requirement.  Councilman Ibarra recommended the review of distance requirements be added to the referral on this agenda to the Finance and Administration Committee regarding the review of the application of Zoning Ordinance Section 5-1900 regarding Special Regulations for Retail Liquor Sales, as it relates to the form of notice to adjacent property owners by license applicant.  Brenda Cirtin, City Clerk, informed Council this issue could be added to the aforementioned referral.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky asked what the notice requirement is for the proposed issue.  Mr. Wichmer responded under State law the applicant, in conjunction with the Licensing Department, sends out notices.  Mr. Wichmer responded those letters are not forwarded to Council.  Councilwoman Rushefsky asked who actually sends the letter.  Mr. Wichmer responded the Licensing Department sends the letters.  Councilwoman Rushefsky asked how long they have to respond to the notification. Mr. Wichmer responded they can respond up until the day of the hearing, adding the letters have to be sent 10-days prior to the approval hearing.  He added it is the burden of the applicant to decide what communication the City receives back, noting in this instance the applicant received verbal communication.  Councilwoman Rushefsky asked if the applicant determines what communication is received from potential objectors. Mr. Wichmer responded in the negative, adding staff sends out the written notice then the affected party can respond in writing or verbally.  He added a response is not required from the affected party.

 

Mayor Pro Tem Stephens noted the applicant’s market is located where the old GO Convenience Store was on E. Bennett.   He noted the Go Convenience store predated the church, adding they had a package liquor license.  Mayor Pro Tem Stephens noted the Well-Fed Market hopes to sell only local manufactured packaged goods, such as beer from Mother’s Brewery and wine from a local winery.

 

Councilman Burlison expressed support of the proposed.  He expressed his belief a public hearing should be held to give citizens the opportunity to speak out in regards to proposed liquor licenses.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky spoke in opposition of the proposed.  She expressed concern that the applicant is not in attendance this evening.  She also expressed concern that the support from the church was not presented in writing, but rather verbally given to the applicant.

 

Councilman Ibarra spoke in support of the proposed.  He expressed concern that if communication is required from all affected parties; it may look like staff is trying to “prove negatives”.  Councilman Ibarra expressed his belief that the law has been followed by the applicant, and he should not be penalized because the affected parties have not presented written support.

 

Mayor O'Neal asked how the notifications are presented to affected parties.  Mr. Wichmer responded the notifications are sent via mail.  He added only one notice was sent out in regards to the proposed application.

 

Councilman Bieker spoke in support of the proposed.  He expressed his belief that a lack of objection is not confirmation of objection.

 

Mayor O'Neal expressed his belief that the applicant should have been present for this discussion.

 

 

 

An opportunity was given for citizens to express their views. With no appearances, the discussion was closed.

 

 

 

Council Bill 2011-234. Resolution 9907 was approved by the following vote: Ayes: Bieker, Bailes, Compton, Ibarra, Burlison, Stephens, and O’Neal. Nays: Rushefsky. Absent: Rush. Abstain: None.

Councilman Compton spoke in opposition of the proposed.  He expressed appreciation to the developer and the engineer working on the proposed for their correspondence regarding questions about the proposed.  He noted the neighbors stated they were told the proposed property would be 1 or 2 story office buildings, and not a development such as the proposed.  Mr. Compton expressed his belief that a development such as the proposed would be harmful to this neighborhood. 

 

Councilman Bailes spoke in opposition of the proposed.  He noted he rarely votes against development, but added he has been contacted by many citizens in this neighborhood who are against the proposed development.

 

Mayor O'Neal spoke in opposition of the proposed.  He noted the neighbors believed that the proposed property would not be developed in such a manner, and therefore should not be.

Greg Burris, City Manager, noted a packet of information was sent to Council to clarify some concerns they had about the proposed bill.

 

Mayor O'Neal asked if the proposed is partly to help infill development in the urban areas, so developers build up and not out.  Ralph Rognstad, Director of Planning and Development, responded affirmatively, adding this will particularly help along major corridors where there is a mix of multi-family and commercial zoning.  He added the proposed will only change the bulk plane adjacent to multi-family districts.

 

Councilman Compton noted he is more comfortable regarding the proposed due to the packet of information that was provided.  He added he believes staff still needs to be careful in single family and low density residential developments.  Mr. Compton noted the proposed was recommended by a unanimous vote of the Planning and Zoning Commission.

 

Councilman Bailes spoke in support of the proposed.  He expressed his belief that the proposed will be beneficial to future developments.

 

Councilwoman Rushefsky spoke in support of the proposed.  She expressed her belief that the proposed “doesn’t go far enough”, adding property elevations should be considered and factored in when calculating the bulk plane amount.

 

Councilman Ibarra asked if staff has received any opposition in regards to the proposed.  Mr. Rognstad responded in the negative, adding no opposition has been received, however there was one speaker at the last Council meeting that voiced his concern regarding the proposed.
