This acreage is on the south side of Folsom Road, near Major Drive as shown on the attached survey and site plan. This development will be a professional office park with space made available for medical offices, CPAs, attorneys, and other professionals who wish to work in this new environment. Homes to the rear of the property will not be affected by this use as the buildings will be one story, traffic will be minimal and will come from Folsom. All other surrounding property is vacant, zoned GC -MD on Folsom frontage and prime for new development. This should spur additional development along the Folsom/Major area. Property values will not be harmed or diminished with this new development.. The Specific Use Permit is only for the rear 100' of the property so that the developer may make use of his land to it's maximum potential. Approval of this permit will not impede the normal and orderly development and improvement of surrounding vacant property. In accordance with the City of Beaumont's ordinances and inspections, all utilities, access roads, drainage and other necessary supporting facilities have been or will be provided. The arrangement of driveways and parking spaces are designed to provide for safe and convenient movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic without adversely affecting the general public or adjacent development. Cross -access will be granted to all adjacent properties as required by the owner. City of Beaumont December 23, 2414 Page 2 This development will be similar to a residential setting and we will not have offensive odor, fumes, dust, noise and vibration. Directional lighting will be installed in a manner that will not disturb neighboring properties. Lighting will be pole lighting and security lighting. Landscaping will be extensive as this property will become a professional business park with well-planned vegetation and irrigation systems to maintain the landscaping. A 6' fence will be installed at the south end of the property to separate this park from the nearby residences. An office park for professional firms is completely in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan for Beaumont and exemplifies the type of development our citizens wish to have in this area. Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns. I look forward to your positive response. Sincerely, / 0 Rick Clark ORDINANCE NO.

Tohme, P.E.. City Utilities Director MEETING DATE: February 3, 2015 REQUESTED ACTION: Council consider a resolution authorizing the City Manager to approve a change order for emergency sanitary sewer repairs to the contract with Simco Enterprises, Ltd., for the Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation of Small Diameter Mains Contract XXIII. BACKGROUND The City Council approved a contract with Simco Enterprises, Ltd., on December 11, 2012, in the amount of $1,895,761.75. The contract renovated a total of 36,377 linear feet of 6 -inch, 8 -inch, and 10 -inch sanitary sewer lines and related appurtenances. The proposed change order in the amount of $235,780.00 will furnish all necessary labor. materials, and equipment to rehabilitate approximately 4,040 linear feet of 8 -inch sanitary sewer lines located south of Broussard Road. The replacement of the lines in this area is necessary as they have deteriorated to a point where routine maintenance no longer provides uninterrupted and adequate service. This change order also includes the cleaning and televising of approximately 3. 100 linear feet of existing 8 -inch and 10 -inch lines serving Peyton Drive and Goodhue Road. Although these lines were rehabilitated in the 1990's, a high volume of sand and silt is entering this line during rain events and drastically reducing the carrying capacity of the lines and thereby causing service interruptions. The investigation of this line will provide the information necessary in order to design a permanent solution. The primary goals of the project are to restore the integrity of the sanitary sewer lines, restore the carrying capacity, provide customers with uninterrupted and adequate service and meet the Sanitary Sewer Overflow Initiative agreement requirements with the State.

BACKGROUND Beaumont EMS operates ambulances consisting of a body or box module mounted on a heavy- duty pickup chassis. Ambulance bodies, when periodically refurbished, have a longer service life than the chassis on which they are mounted. Refurbishment is less costly than purchasing a new body each time the chassis needs to be replaced. Refurbishment of bodies and replacement of chassis are requested through the City's budget process. The Fleet Superintendent evaluated the request and recommended refurbishment and replacement due to the age and mileage of the unit. Pricing was obtained through the Houston -Galveston Area Council (H -GAC), a cooperative purchasing association providing cities and political subdivisions with the means to purchase specialized equipment at volume pricing. H -GAC complies with State of Texas procurement statutes. FUNDING SOURCE Capital Reserve Fund. RECOMMENDATION Approval of resolution. RESOLUTION NO.

Sincerely, Daniel Allgeier Representative of Beaumont Housing Partners, Ltd - Vice President dal l gel erEa'Lnurock.conn Heritage Heights Heritage Heights is a proposed 118 unit rental high-rise property for seniors in Beaumont, Texas. Project Description: High-rise - 40 one bedroom units - 722 square feet 78 two bedroom - 2 bath units - 948 square feet • Clubhouse with offices, maintenance facilities, support services area, health club, games room, library, business center, kitchen, meeting and party rooms. Heritage Heights �' Units will feature: • Energy saving features including: 0 14 SEER AC with programmable thermostats o Energy Star rated lights, plumbing and appliances o Energy Star rated windows o Passive solar features • Full kitchens with pantry • Washer and. Dryer connections in all units • Ceiling Fans in living and bedrooms • Water saving landscaping and fixtures • Some covered parking or garages Vista G—d w Spri- Hill _ � _ ECONOMICS • Overall prcVct cost - $15,700,000 • For residents of all income. Some units will be restricted to residents that make less than 600io of the area median income - for example 524,300 for a family of two, some to residents that make less than 30% of the AMI, and some to residents of any income. • Sources of Funds Heritage Heights o Debt from conventional lender o Local funds from the City or other local provider. $950,000 is required to maximize points o Equity from sale of housing tax credits Housing tax credits are federal income tax credits. They are sold to large publicly traded companies like Google and J.P. Morgan/Chase. These companies are betting they will snake money over the next ten years and can apply these credits to their federal income tax bill. The local effect is the input of over $10,700,000 of equity into the local economy. The Statewide effect of the annual allocation of over $60 million of tax credits is an influx of over half a billion dollars of equity into the state each year. This project will create short term construction jobs, as well as permanent jobs for operation of the property and increase local business. According to the National Home Builders there are 3 phases of economic impact from construction of housing. First, there is the construction phase which adds an average of $52,429 to the local economy and $4,000 to local taxes (both property and sales taxes). Next is the first years impact which adds $24,147 to the local economy and $3,528 in taxes. Finally there is the on going impact adding $23,567 to the local economy and an average of $4,270 in tax revenue. How does this happen'? Contractors hire local labor, house employees locally, buy materials and pay fees. The construction workers eat, buy gas and shop locally. The long term effects are because residents use banks, car repair, dry cleaners, day care, dentists, electricity, lawyers, and medical services, read newspapers and eat out among other things. Additionally Heritage Heights will pay property taxes to the City, County, and the School District.
