FOWLER >> THANK YOU, MAYOR YOU KNOW, WHEN THIS FIRST CAME TO US, I, YOU KNOW, STARTED CHECKING AROUND THE COUNTRY TO SEE WHAT OTHER CITIES ARE DOING, AND I’LL JUST MAKE A STATEMENT THAT SOME MUNICIPALITIES DON’T ALLOW RETENTION PONDS ON PROPERTIES THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH CHILDREN AT SCHOOLS NOT DAY CARES, NOT ANYTHING BUT IT’S UNFORTUNATE IN MY OPINION THAT THE CITY OF FAYETTEVILLE WE’RE NOT THERE YET BUT IT’S AN ISSUE AROUND THE COUNTRY WHETHER IT’S A FENCE THERE OR NOT, SO I’LL JUST LEAVE IT AT THAT >> THANK YOU, MA’AM MR. FOWLER? >> I’M JUST RECALLING THE PREVIOUS DISCUSSION WE HAD IN THE LAST MEETING ABOUT THIS, AND THE CERB WAS ABOUT THE SAFETY — CONCERN WAS ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN, AND YOU HAVE A SIX-FOOT FENCE COMPLETELY SURROUNDING THE PLAY AREA, WHERE THEY DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THIS RETENTION POND AT ALL AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE ONLY WAY THEY COULD GET TO IT WOULD BE A CONCERTED EFFORT TO GO ALL THE WAY AROUND THE BUILDING AND BACK, AND I’M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT US SOMETIMES TRYING TO ADD TOO MUCH ON BUILDING THINGS IN THIS CASE, I DON’T THINK SAFETY IS COMPROMISED AT ALL, BUT I DO THINK THAT WE THEN ADD AN ADDITIONAL BURDEN AND EXPENSE ON CONSTRUCTION THAT I THINK WON’T PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL BENEFIT TO WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SO THAT’S JUST WHERE I STAND ON IT >> MR. ARP? >> WELL, I’D LIKE TO ECHO WHAT MR. FOWLER’S SAYING BECAUSE YOU KNOW, IF YOU GO RIGHT DOWN THE STREET HERE TO THE VETERAN’S PARK WE HAVE THE CROSS-CREEK THAT RUNS ADJACENT TO THE PARKT SO IF WE APPLY THE SAME STANDARD BECAUSE WE CERTAINLY HAVE CHILDREN IN THE SAME PARK THEN WE SHOULD GO DOWN THERE AND PUT UP A FENCE AROUND VETERANS PARK WHERE KIDS CAN’T GET INTO THE CREEK OR MAYBE WE SHOULD APPLY THAT TO THE RIVER TRAIL SYSTEM AND ALL THE TRAIL NETWORKS WE’RE PUTTING IN THAT WHERE WE’RE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF OUR WATERWAYS AND YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU PUT A FENCE UP LIKE THAT THEN YOU GOT THE ADDED BURDEN TO THE OWNER OF THE BUILDING NOW WHEN THE GRASS GROWS UP AROUND THERE THEN PEOPLE ARE GOING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE GRASS SO I WOULD SUBMIT TO YOU THE SAFETY ISSUE FROM THE DAY CARE CENTER IS PROBABLY NOT AN ISSUE THE BIGGER ISSUE TO THE DAY CARE CENTER IS MOSQUITOES AND THAT’S WHY THE STATE’S TRYING TO MOVE AWAY FROM SEDENTATION PONDS LIKE THIS TO BEGIN WITH >> MR. CRISP >> YES, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, PLEASE CHILDREN GET OUT OF SCHOOLS AND THEY GET OUT OF CARS AND THEY GET OUT OF DAY CARE CENTERS, ALL RIGHT? MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT WE ARE LOOKING AT A SAFETY ISSUE HERE BECAUSE THEY DO, AND I’VE TALK TO SOMEONE WHO IS AN EXPERT WHO HAS HAD TO CHASE DOWN

CHILDREN WHO HAVE SUDDENLY BOLT ED AND RAN FROM DAY CARE CENTERS, ALL RIGHT, AND CAUGHT THEM JUST BEFORE THEY GOT TO THE STREET IN SOME INSTANCES, SO THESE THINGS DO HAPPEN I DON’T ANTICIPATE CHILDREN GETTING OUT OF THE PLAY AREA THAT’S A SIX-FOOT FENCE THAT ONLY OPENS I BELIEVE FROM ACCESS FROM THE DAY CARE CENTER ITSELF BUT I’M CONCERNED ABOUT PEOPLE WHO PULL UP IN CARS AND CHILDREN JUMP OUT AND RUN OR COMING OUT AND CHILDREN RUN THESE THINGS HAPPEN, FOLKS ANGRY CHILDREN GET OUTDOORS THEY GET OUT OF ROOMS THEY BOLT AND RUN PROVEN FACT AND IT ONLY TAKES A SECOND FOR A CHILD TO DROWN IN A CUP FULL OF WATER >> ANYBODY ELSE FOR A FIRST ROUND? OR REBUTTAL FROM MR. FOWLER >> OKAY, MR. FOWLER >> ONCE AGAIN I GO BACK TO — I HAD SMALL CHILDREN THEY BOLTED AND RAN THEY’RE MY RESPONSIBILITY TO LOOK AFTER I’M JUST SITTING HERE LOOKING AT — THEY’VE TAKEN EVERY SENSIBLE STEP IT APPEARS TO ME, AND IF WE’RE CONCERNED ABOUT CHILD BOLTING AND RUNNING, THEY’RE MORE LIKELY TO BOLT AND RUN WHEN THEY COME INTO THE BUILDING THAN RUN INTO THE STREET IF WE’RE GOING TO OVERENGINEER, IF YOU WILL, THEN WE NEED TO HAVE THEM FENCE THE ENTIRE PROPERTY IN AND HAVE AN AUTOMATIC GATE THAT OPENS AND CLOSES SO THERE’S NOT AN OPEN ENTRANCE THAT A KID COULD RUN OUT INTO THE PARKING LOT INTO THE STREET YOU KNOW, WE DO HAVE PARENTS WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO EXERCISE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR CHILDREN, AND UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT ACCOMMODATE FOR ACCOUNT FOR EVERY SINGLE INSTANCE THAT WILL OCCUR AND IN THIS INSTANCE I THINK IT’S VERY REASONABLE THE WAY THEY HAVE IT DESIGNED SO I’M JUST — >> ALL RIGHT: ALL RIGHT, SIR DOES ANYBODY ELSE WANT TO SPEAK ON THE ISSUE DOES EVERYBODY REMEMBER THE MOTION? LET ME ASK FOR YOUR VOTE ON THE MOTION, PLEASE THE MOTION FAILS THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION IN OPPOSITION, IS THERE ADDITIONAL MOTION, COUNCIL? >> MR.

QUITE A COMPARISON BETWEEN OUR SYSTEM AND A LOT OF OUR PEERS, AND THIS SLIDE SOMEWHAT SUMMARIZES SOME OAF THAT INFORMATION THAT I JUST WANTED TO PRESENT TO YOU AGAIN SINCE 2008, THE TRARNZT — TRANSIT OPERATIONS COSTS HAVE INCREASED $1.78 MILLION ALL THESE ARE ANNUAL OPERATING COSTS OR ANNUAL DOLLARS THAT’S ABOUT A 36% INCREASE OVER THAT TIME, AND A LARGE PART OF THAT IS ADDED SERVICE THE FUNDING HAS INCREASES JUST OVER A MILLION DOLLARS DURING THAT SAME TIME THAT CITY FUNDING AND THAT INCLUDES THE VEHICLE LICENSE FEE THAT CITIZENS PAY THAT ALL IS INCLUDED THERE IF YOU ADD IN THE CAPITAL, WHICH WE’VE HAD LOT OF CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS TOO BOTH IN TERMS OF VINTAGE SHELTERS, NEW BUSES THAT Y’ALL HAVE MATCHED AND AGAIN, INCLUDING THE VEHICLE LICENSE FEE, THAT’S ABOUT $2 MILLION BUT THAT HAS BEEN I THINK A GOOD VALUE IN THAT OUR RIDERSHIP HAS INCREASED BY ABOUT 80% OVER WHAT IT WAS IN 2008 THIS IS THREW 20 — IN 2013 OUR COST PER RIDER IS DOWN BY ABOUT 30% AND THE CITY FUNDING THAT — HAS REMAINED RELATIVELY FLAT IT’S ACTUALLY DOWN ABOUT 10% THESE GRAPHS SOMEWHAT SHOWS IT IN A LITTLE DIFFERENT WAY YOU CAN SEE HOW THE COSTS HAVE GONE UP HOW THE FAIRS WHICH IS THE BOTTOM LINE HAS GONE UP, AND SO THE SAME SLOPE, AND THEN THE CITY FUNDING IS THE GREEN LINE, AND THAT, THAT HAS A PEAK, THAT ACTUALLY PEAKED IN 2011 AND AS YOU KNOW WE HAD AN ISSUE WITH OUR FUEL TANK OVER IN GROVE STREET AND WE HAD A LOT OF EXPENSE THAT YEAR THAT SORT OF MADE THAT HUMP THERE BUT OVERALL IT IS — EVERYTHING HAS SORT OF MAINTAINED THE SAME SLOPE AND AGAIN THE COST WE’VE BEEN COVERING THAT THROUGH GRANTS AND AGAIN FARES HAVE MADE UP A BIGGER AND BIGGER PART OF THAT IN TERMS OF COST EFFECTIVENESS, YOU’LL SEE OUR FARE RECOVERY HAS GONE TO 15.1% NOW AND YOU WILL ALSO SEE OUR COST PER RIDER HAS DECLINED FROM OVER $5 TO $3.64 PER RIDER AND THEN THE FUNDING WHICH IS THE GENERAL FUND FUNDING AS WELL AS THE VEHICLE LICENSE FEE HAS AGAIN REMAINED PRETTY CONSTANT BUT IT’S DROPPED FROM $2 TO $1.86 WHY ARE WE INCREASING FAIRS, WHY ARE WE TALKING ABOUT INCREASING FAIRS, THE MAIN REASON THAT THE FACT COMMITTEE HAS RECOMMENDED THIS IS BECAUSE, IS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO CONTINUE THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT Y’ALL HAVE INVESTED IN TRANSIT AND WANT TO SEE THOSE CONTINUE SORT OF MAINTAIN THAT MOMENTUM IN TERMS BOTH IN SERVICE AND IN IN RIDERSHIP YOU WILL SEE THERE OUR FARE INCREASE HAS INCREASED 15.1% THAT LAGS OUR PEERS A LITTLE BIT AGAIN THIS FARE INCREASE WOULD REACH TOWARD THAT INCREASE THE USER SHARE OF FUNDING THAT IS IF YOU TAKE THE FAIRS IF YOU DIVIDE IT BY HOW MUCH STATE AND LOCAL FUNDING GOES INTO THAT AGAIN WE’RE LAGGING OUR PEERS BY A LITTLE BIT WE’RE AT 23.3% AND THE PEERS HAVE BEEN AT 30% ANOTHER ITEM THAT I THINK IS SIGNIFICANT IS UPON US WE HAVE GRANT COMMITMENT BUT THERE IS MULTIMODAL COMMITMENT THAT IS GOING TO BE HITTING THE CITY BUDGET OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS ONE THING I WANTED TO DO IS SORT OF TO INTRODUCE TO YOU SOME OF THE SERVICE IMPROVEMENTS THAT THE FACT CITY WILL BE RECOMMENDING TO YOU IN MARCH BUT I JUST WANTED TO SORT OF PUT THESE OUT THERE AND WE HAVE ALSO BEEN TALKING TO THE COMMUNITIES SOME OF THE PLANNED ENHANCEMENTS THAT THESE FARES WOULD HELP SHARE IN A NEW ROUTE FOR STRICKLAND BRIDGE ROAD THIS YEAR WE ARE WORKING ON BUS STOPS TO MAKE THAT ROUTE HAPPEN THERE IS AN EXPRESS ROUTE BETWEEN DOWNTOWN AND CROSS CREEK MALL AND THIS WOULD HELP RELIEVE SH OF — SOME OF THE OVERLOADS E HAVE AS WELL AS BETWEEN DOWNTOWN FCC AND THE MALL

I KNOW YOU HAD ANNOUNCEMENTS BUT KIND OF LIKE WHAT COUNCILMAN HAIRE SAYS IN TERMS OF GETTING, RIDERS CONGREGATE AT THE TRANSFER CENTER■ç VERSUS TAKING PEOPLE OUT WHERE THEY MAY NOT BE GOING ON A REGULAR BASIS JUST TO GET FEEDBACK WAS THAT CONSIDERED TO POSSIBLY GET DIRECT FEEDBACK FROM THE TRANSFER CENTER? >> AGAIN, WE HAVEN’T DONE THAT I THINK WE CERTAINLY PLAN THAT’LL BE EASIER TO DO WHEN THE MULTIMODAL CENTER IS THERE BECAUSE THERE WILL BE ROOM FOR IT WE DO STRUGGLE WITH THE ROOM AT OUR CURRENT FACILITY

PARTICULARLY WITH THAT WEATHER BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE’RE ALWAYS LOOKING AT HOW WE CAN IMPROVE THAT OUTREACH AND AGAIN I KNOW WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES STRUGGLING WITH THIS FEDERAL HIGHWAYS IS TOO WE ARE SO USED TO HAVING THESE MEETINGS AND NOBODY COMES OUT, AND SO WE’RE TRYING TO LOOK AT HOW WE CAN DO THAT THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY IS GOING TO SOME OF THE, THEY’RE NOT OPEN PUBLIC MEETINGS BUT GOING TO SPECIFIC GROUPS LIKE WE DID THIS TIME TO FIND OUT WHAT THEIR ISSUES ARE BECAUSE WE KNOW THEY HAVE SOME CONCERNS THAT IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY IF THERE IS A MAJOR EVENT LIKE THE DOGWOOD FESTIVAL THAT HAS BEEN THE TIME THEY ARE ABLE TO GET THE MOST FEEDBACK PEOPLE ARE THERE FOR REASON BUT THEN THEY WE SPEND THE TIME BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE STRUGGLE WITH, AND THAT IS SOMETHING WE WILL CERTAINLY LOOK INTO I KNOW THE MEETINGS — ONCE WE HAVE THE MULTIMODAL CENTER AND WE HAVE A FACILITY THAT WE CAN DO THAT, THE MEETINGS TO BE AT THE TRANSFER CENTER IS GOING TO BE A LOT EASIER TO HOLD >> AND THEN FOR THE FARE PROPOSAL, I KNO WE TALKED T IT QUITE A BIT ABOUT THE STUDENTS, AND■ç HOW WE CAN POSSIBLY PARTNER IF IT’S WITH THE UNIVERSITIES HERE AND OUR COMMUNITY AND OTHER LARGE ENTITIES TO HELP OUT WITH THOSE PASSES WHAT IS THE PROGRESS ABOUT THAT?

WOULD YOU CARE TO RESPOND TO WHAT WE ARE DOING IN FAYETTEVILLE CUMBERLAND COUNTY THAT WASN’T CLEARLY STATED OR SOMETHING YOU WANT TO ADD TO THAT ARTICLE? >> WELL, I THINK ANY COMMUNITY’S GOAL SHOULD BE TO DIVERSIFY THEIR ECONOMY, WHETHER YOU’RE PRIMARILY BASED IN THE MILITARY OR YOU HAVE A LARGE — ONE SINGLE LARGE EMPLOYER IN TOWN THAT MIGHT BE A HEADQUARTERS OR A PLANT SO I THINK DIVERSIFYING AN ECONOMY SHOULD BE THE GOAL OF ANY COMMUNITY AND IT CERTAINLY IS OUR GOAL AND IT’S REALLY A BIG PART OF WHAT, YOU KNOW, WE’VE GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS WITH THE GARDENER STUDY THAT REAFFIRMS THAT, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY THE FORT BRAGG AND MILITARY TO 40% OF OUR GDP SO WE CREATED THE ALLIANCE WE’RE STRUCTURING A MORE AGGRESSIVE MARKETING CAMPAIGN TO GET OUT THERE AND TRY TO ATTRACT A MORE DIVERSE BUSINESS BASE WITHOUT LOSING SIGHT OF OUR MILITARY STRENGTH AND MAYBE LEVERAGING THAT STRENGTH QUITE FRANKLY SO I THINK DIVERSIFYING ECONOMY IS GOOD FOR EVERY COMMUNITY IT’S DEFINITELY GOING TO BE GOOD FOR FAYETTEVILLE FOR US TO DIVERSIFY THAT ECONOMY AND WE AT THE ALLIANCE AND I THINK THE CHAMBER AND THE COMMUNITY ARE GOING TO WORK HARD TO DO THAT THAT TAKES EFFORT AND TIME I ALWAYS SAY WITH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, YOU KNOW, WE’RE ALWAYS WORKING ON JOBS MR. CRISP’S COMMENT, THREE YEARS FROM NOW WE ARE BUILDING JOBS SO THERE IS SOMEWHAT OF A DELAY FACTOR WITH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SO WE’RE GOING TO STRIVE TO DO A BETTER JOB OF MARKETING TO OUR TARGET MARKET SECTORS COMPANIES AND JOBS THAT CAN COME HERE THAT ARE NONMILITARY RELATED BUT WE’RE ALSO STILL GOING TO RECRUIT MILITARY RELATED >> AND I CAN’T FIND THE FIGURE HERE BUT THERE WAS LIKE $420 MILLION IN — IT’S A BIG NUMBER OF DEVELOPMENT CAN’T FIND THAT NUMBER WHAT SORT OF ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGIES OR INDUSTRIES WOULD YOU SEE COMING TO FAYETTEVILLE AND TO WRITE OFF OF WHAT THE MAYOR PROTEM WAS SAYING IS OUR WORKFORCE IN YOUR OPINION PREPARED, WHERE THE TWO MAY MEET? >> THAT’S WHO THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THE TARGET SECTORS AND LOOKING AT THE BACK OFFICE, LOOKING AT THE BUSINESS FINANCIAL, PLASTICS AND METIC WORKING INDUSTRIES AS WELL AS THE MILITARY AS OUR TARGET SECTORS THAT INFORMATION THROUGH THE GARDNER REPORT WAS BASED ON WHAT OUR WORKFORCE AND LOCATION QUOTIENT, SO TO SPEAK DO WE HAVE THE WORKFORCE, THE STRUCTURAL, THE FUS — FACILITIES SO WE WILL BE FOCUSING ON THOSE TARGET SECTOR AREAS IN OUR RECRUITMENT EFFORT BUT I THINK WORKFORCE AND WORKFORCE TRAINING IS AN ISSUE IN THIS COUNTRY AND WE’RE ALL STRUGGLING WITH THAT TO SOME DEGREE BUT WHAT WE NEED TO DO AS AN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION IS MAKE SURE PEOPLE WE ARE LOOKING AT IN OUR COMMUNITY UNDERSTAND THAT WE CERTAINLY HAVE THE PEOPLE WE CERTAINLY HAVE THE TRAINING AND TRAINING ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS THERE AND THAT’S THE KEY IS THAT TRY TO MAKE SURE THESE COMPANIES THAT ARE LOOKING AT US, UNDERSTAND WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE IT >> LOOKING AT CUMBERLAND COUNTY SCHOOLS, GET GREAT SUPPORT FROM THOSE FOLKS WE’RE TALKING CONTINUALLY ABOUT WAYS WE CAN WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR WORKFORCE IS GETTING THE INFORMATION AND THE TRAINING AND THE BACKGROUND THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL WE CONTINUE THAT COLLABORATIVE EFFORT, WE CONTINUE THAT, THAT IS AN ONGOING JOURNEY IF YOU WILL I’M CONFIDENT WE ARE GOING TO GET BETTER AND BETTER AND BETTER AT IT >> THANK YOU, SIR >> MR. FOWLER >> YES, SIR WE HEAR A LOT WHEN WE’RE LOOKING AT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ABOUT BRINGING COMPANIES IN FROM OUT AND AROUND AND CREATE JOBS IN THIS AREA YOU AND I HAD HAD — A BRIEF CONVERSATION THE OTHER DAY I WOULD LIKE TO GROW OUR OWN I DON’T THINK THERE IS A SINGLE LARGE COMPANY IN AMERICA THAT STARTED OUT LARGE IT STARTED OUT SMALL MOST OF THE JOBS IN AMERICA ARE

PROVIDED BY SMALL BUSINESS, AND I THINK THAT HAVING A HOME ATTACHMENT BY SAYING YOU KNOW WHAT? I FOUNDED MY PLACE HERE HELPS BUILD THAT COMMUNITY LOYALLY HELP BRING HERE NOT NECESSARILY BRINGING, YOU KNOW, AN ARM HERE FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE THAT LOYALTY GROWS STRONG, AND I THINK IT’S NOT QUITE THECUBATOR THING — THE INCUBATOR THING BUT ECONOMIC GARDENING COULD WE HAVE SOME OF OUR FOCUS IN THAT DIRECTION I DIDN’T HEAR, YOU KNOW, I ABSOLUTELY WASN’T HERE FOR YOUR POINT BUT I WAS AT PWC SO I KNOW WHAT YOUR PRESENTATION WAS I DIDN’T HEAR A LOT ABOUT ECONOMIC GROWTH FROM THE SENSE OF GROWING THEM HERE IN TOWN DO WE HAVE■ç ANYTHING WHERE WE ç A COUNCIL COULD HELP OUT WITH SAYñr OVERLAY■ç DISTRICTS THAT E OF THING TO FOSTER GROWTH OF ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT AND GROW JOBS HERE THAT ARE ORIGINAL TO■ç HERE INSTEAD OF COMING FROM SOMEWHERE■ç ELSE >> THAT’S A GREAT■ç POINT YOU WANT TO HAVE YOUR GOODYEAR CEO HAVE HIS HOME HERE BECAUSE IT’S A MUCH EASIER DECISION TO KEEP YOUR BUSINESS HERE IT’S EASIER TO GROW IT TAKES LONGER, BUT THEY DO STAY AND THAT’S THE MAIN THING SO A PART OF A STRATEGY IS DEFINITELY YOU WANT TO GO AFTER THE LARGE PROJECT, YOU WANT THAT MEGAMEGASITE PROJECT, YOU WANT THE HOME RUN I CALL IT LIKE MOST HOME RUNS COME FEW AND FAR BETWEEN BUT THEY’RE IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE STRATEGY FOR IT THEN YOU WANT YOUR BREAD AND BUTTER YOU WANT YOUR CUMBERLAND AND INDUSTRIAL CENTER YOU WANT CEDAR CREEK BUSINESS PARK TYPE MANUFACTURING, JAWBSZ, JAWBSZ — JOBS, MANUFACTURING, THAT TYPE OF THING AND YOU ALSO WANT TO GO AFTER THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT AND GROWING JOBS FROM WITHIN START-UP BUSINESSES ARE VERY IMPORTANT QUITE FRANKLY SMALL BUSINESSES ARE THE LARGEST EMPLOYER IN THE COUNTRY LET’S BE HONEST ABOUT IT IF YOU LOOK AT IT SO ECONOMIC GARDENING, MAKING SURE ENTREPRENEURS HAVE A PLACE TO SUPPORT THEIR BUSINESS ONE OF THE THINGS WE ARE WORKING ON AND WE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO LAUNCH THIS YEAR IS AN ANGEL FUND AND THAT IS A FUND THAT WOULD HELP PROVIDE START-UP CAPITAL TO VERY SMALL BUSINESSES GETTING STARTED BEFORE THEY GET TO THE NEED OF NEEDING VENTURE CAPITAL MOST BUSINESSES START UP WITH INVESTMENT FROM FAMILIES AND FRIENDS ONCE THEY EXHAUST THOSE FUNDS THEN THEY GET INTO ANGEL MONEY AND THAT USUALLY LAUNCHES AND THEN THEY ARE READY TO GO INTO VENTURE MONEY OR THEIR MARKET’S SO STRONG THEY ARE GOING TO BE BANKED ECONOMIC GARDENING IS GOING TO BE A KEY PART OF OUR STRATEGY AND WE ARE TRYING TO PUT THOSE TOOLS IN PLACE WORK WITH MR.

SO THAT IS WHERE WE ARE WE WOULD ASK TO MOVE FORWARD WITH OUR ACQUISITION AS WE HAVE STATED HERE I WANT TO JUST SHOW THE MAP THAT GOES WITH THAT THIS IS THE CORRESPONDING MAP THE PROPERTIES ARE SHOWN IN THE BLUE OR THE CITY OWNED PROPERTIES THAT I HAVE MENTIONED THAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE ACQUIRED THOSE THAT ARE IN GREEN ARE THE FOUR WE FEEL WE CAN WORK WITH THE PROPERTY OWNERS TO ACQUIRE THEIR PROPERTY THEN THE ONES IN THE YELLOW, THE THREE SHOWED THOSE THAT WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED IN RESPONSE BUT WE DO HAVE A LOG OF THE NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS THAT WE HAVE MADE TO CONTACT THEM, AND THEN THE RED ARE THOSE THAT I MENTIONED ALSO THAT WE HAVE TITLE ISSUES WITH EXPWEA QUESTIONS ON THOSE? >> WE HAVE A COUPLE SIR, MR.

SIR? >> WE HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE, RIGHT? >> I’LL GO THROUGH A FEW OF THOSE SLIDES THEN OKAY IF I CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO THAT I DID WANT TO POINT OUT BASED ON THE MARKET INFORMATION THAT WAS DONE BY THE CONSULTANT, IT

DID — DOES POINT OUT THAT THE BEST USE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE TO USE FLEX SPACE IN THAT DEVELOPMENT FLEX SPACE BASICALLY DEALS WITH HAVING YOUR STOREFRONT UPFRONT AND PERHAPS WAREHOUSING OR STORAGE TYPE OF FACILITY IN THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY THIS SHOWS THE OVERVIEW OF WHERE THE AREA’S LOCATED WE DID GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN A MEETING IN SEPTEMBER TO OFFER THEIR CONCERNS IN REGARD TO THIS WE DO WANT TO SAY THET THE REASON THE CITY IS PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROJECT IS BECAUSE OF OUR COMMITMENTS TO THE HOPE VI PROJECT TO WHERE WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING WITH THE HOUSING AUTHORITY TO BUILD IMPROVED HOUSING IN THE AREA THE CITY WILL COME BACK AND ALSO WORK WITH DEVELOPERS TO CREATE MARKET RATE HOUSING AS WELL AS SOME OTHER TYPES OF ACTIVITIES SUCH AS THE NEIGHBORHOOD RESOURCE CENTER THAT’S CURRENTLY BEING CONSTRUCTED AND A CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER THAT WILL ALSO BE CONSTRUCTED THIS LAYOUT SHOWS THE PREFERRED OPTION FOR THE PROPOSED HOPE VI BUSINESS PARK AND IT’S A MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT THAT DEALS WITH RETAIL THE FLEX SPACE WE MENTIONED AS WELL AS OFFICE SPACE IT ALSO PROVIDES FOR TRAIL ALONG THE BLUNTS CREEK, WHICH CONTINUES WITH THE BLUNTS CREEK TRAIL THAT WE HAVE BEEN WORKING IN THE PART OF THE GEMENT — DEVELOPMENT THAT HAS HOUSING I’LL JUST LEAVE THAT UP FOR A MOMENT THIS NEXT SLIDE DEALS WITH AN AERIAL OVERVIEW OF WHAT THE PROPOSED SITE WOULD POSSIBLY LOOK LIKE AND THESE ARE SOME TYPES OF BUILDINGS THAT YOU MIGHT WOULD SEE IN THAT TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT BEST PRACTICES IN RETAIL AND ALSO THIS IS JUST A SLIDE THAT DEALS WITH HOW WE WOULD POSSIBLY PHASE THAT DEVELOPMENT ONE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS DEALS WITH GATEWAY OPPORTUNITIES POSSIBLY A ROUNDABOUT BUT ALSO DEALING WITH THE OTHER THREE CORNERS REAL QUICK I WILL GO OVER THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE PLAN AND THE FIRST ONE AS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT EARLIER IS TO ACQUIRE THE REMAINING PROPERTIES THE SECOND IS CONSIDER THE ACQUISITION TERRITORY TO INCLUDE PROPERTY TO THE SOUTH AND THAT WOULD BE TO TAKE IN LAND TO ALLOW FOR THAT BLUNT, THE CONTINUATION OF THE BLUNTS CREEK TRAIL THE THIRD ONE IS EXTEND TRAIL NETWORK WEST ALONG BLUNTS CREEK AND CONSIDER BRANCHING ALONG THE RAILROAD TRACKS TO WORTH STREET ALSO TO PROMOTE A GATEWAY ENHANCEMENT FOCUS ON BLUNTS STREET AND GILLESPIE STREET INTERSECTION AND THEN TO PROMOTE THE FOUR CORNERS WITH MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT AT BLUNT AND GILLESPIE STREET INTERSECTION ALSO CONSIDER BRANDING THE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS THAT ELIMINATES BUSINESS PARK WE’VE BEEN USING THE TERM BUSINESS PARK BUT IT’S RECOMMENDED THAT WE COME UP WITH SOME OTHER TYPE OF BRANDING CONCEPT THAT RECOGNIZE FLEX SPACE AND MIXED USE AS A TARGET AREA THEN TO IDENTIFY OPTIONS FOR REZONING OF THE TARGET AREA IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE REDEVELOPMENT GOALS NEXT IS TO SEE PARTNERS INTERESTED IN THE RESTORATION AND CELEBRATION OF THE FORMER E.E. SMITH HOME AND ALSO TO SEEK LOCAL EDUCATION, TRAINING INSTITUTIONS, TO CONSIDER LOCATING AN OFF–CAMPUS FACILITY WITHIN THE PROJECT AREA AND THEN VERY IMPORTANTLY, IF ALL OF THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED, WE WOULD PREPARE OUR REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS PACKET FOR PRIVATE DEVELOPERS THAT MAY HAVE AN INTEREST IN REDEVELOPMENT OF THE SITE AND THEN WE WOULD SOLICIT THE QUALIFICATIONS FROM REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS WHO ACTUALLY DEVELOP THE SITE AND THE LAST RECOMMENDATION IS TO CONSIDER A TRANSPORTATION STUDY FOR GILLESPIE STREET TO CHANGE THE LEVEL IN SERVICE AND COMPLETE STREET DESIGN MODEL TO ANTICIPATE THE DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL TAKE PLACE THERE SO MR.
