VI.     New Business

A.   Freese and Nichols to present an introduction and update to the steering committee on the League City Master Mobility Plan.

Bob Sutton of Freese and Nichols provided a presentation and update to the steering committee on the League City Master Mobility Plan.

 

Mr. Arnold asked what the red circle indicated on the map.

Mr. Sutton replied that the area was circled in red to provide magnification of the streets that were proposed to be modeled.

 

Mr. Alderman asked how the school districts fit into the proposed plan and if they were involved in the process.

Mr. Sutton answered that his staff intended to consult with schools, emergency services, and other pertinent organizations to obtain input on providing major thoroughfares and related locations.

 

Mr. Alderman stated Highway 3 appeared to be divided into two roads on the map, and asked if changes were planned.

Mr. Sutton replied the graphic had to do with mechanics of the model, it did not necessarily signify divided road ways.

Mr. Alderman inquired if the Grand Parkway was envisioned to be an extension of Highway 646.

Mr. Sutton answered that an alignment was yet to be provided for the Grand Parkway, and informed once their maps were finalized, a report would be provided to inform of a precise location.

 

Mr. Alderman asked if HGAC knew how the metro transit was going to expand.

Mr. Sutton replied that their responsibility was to compile plans and as such they would incorporate what Metro may submit. As such, if Metro provided any documentation, it would be placed into the HGAC network.

Mr. Alderman stated when Metro reviewed the plans and how much density was being estimated in the west part of the city, they may change their current plan.

Mr. Sutton said that consideration was a reason for producing these kinds of forecasts.

 

Mr. Bindhammer asked where the population projections came from.

Mr. Sutton answered projections came from City Staff, the 2010 Census, development plats, and his staff planner. He requested the Commission to provide their input on the projections.

 

Mr. Alderman stated that population projections would be reliant on economic growth and opined if IH-45 were to become a parking lot, no one would want to live here.

 

Mr. Arnold asked if future annexation was considered, or if the estimates were strictly city driven.

Mr. Sutton informed that it was his belief that only current city limits were considered.

Mr. Alderman inquired as to the ETJ and if the area was going to be considered for annexation.

Mr. Menzies informed that the population numbers likely came out of his office. He stated that League City?s growth has been approximately 3,000 people per year over the course of the last ten years. Therefore, 25 years from now in 2040, the City would be close to the 200,000 buildout projection. He included that the annexation area between League City and Dickinson was not in the plan as of current due to utility and service considerations.

 

Mr. Bindhammer asked for more information about the plan.

Mr. Sutton stated he would send the 2025 and 2040 network maps to the Commission. He added that he would research the population projections and would provide more information regarding changes and forecasts.

 

VII.   Staff Comments

Mr. Menzies provided an update on the proposed ordinance amendments to Chapter 125 of the Code of Ordinances. He informed that the amendment for administrative adjustments was unanimously passed on the first reading by City Council and the second reading would be held at the next Council meeting. He stated that the accessory structure ordinance was postponed, and the item would go back to Council with a different ordinance containing a revised grandfathering clause, of which would be considered with a first reading next Council meeting. Lastly, he stated that the ordinance amendment for non-conforming signs was denied by a vote of 5 to 3.
