Title

Discuss the IH-35E Corridor Vision Study including the roles and responsibilities of the Planning and Zoning Commission as the project steering committee.

 

Body

BACKGROUND:

This is the first of four anticipated steering committee meetings for the IH-35E Corridor Vision Study. In this meeting the consultant, Interface Studio LLC, will introduce the (approximately) 11 month long vision study process, and review the roles and responsibilities of the committee.

 

The City’s 2020 Strategic Plan identifies the IH-35E Corridor Vision Study as a project to help fulfill C2 of the Strategic Plan: provide attractive, unique and connected spaces for community interaction. The vision study will guide development within the IH-35E Corridor for approximately the next 20 years and include recommended action items to leverage existing assets in order to increase property values and allow for higher quality land uses within the corridor. This is an optimal time to conduct the study as the IH-35E highway infrastructure will be widened in the near future, further impacting properties particularly along the west side of the highway.

 

On November 12, 2019 City Council approved a Professional Services Agreement with Interface Studio LLC for completion of the study. Interface Studio LLC will serve as the primary consultant, with Ninigret Partners and Big Red Dog a division of WGI teaming together as sub-consultants. The project scope (Attachment 1), which outlines the project process, milestones, and key deliverables, identifies the Planning and Zoning Commission as the Steering Committee for the project.
