City Manager is requesting the City Council to approve an additional service agreement for Task Order 1 of the TOD Master Development Plan scope of services with ACi.
This agenda item is proposed to add approximately 68 acres of land to the origional scope of services. Based upon the inforatiom we've learned from the first study, we can optimize and expidite development opportunities in the TOD area by adding this land into the study. The request is needed to ensure that the TOD Master Development Plan is seamlessly interconnected and that high-quality development is created within the core area as well as adjacent properties. The additional services includes the 68 acre parcel of property located at the southeast quadrant of US 17-92 and Dirkson Drive.
On September 7, 2016 the city council entered into an agreement with Aci to establish a development plan for the core area of the TOD. To date, ACi has determined the economic feasibility and is finalizing the development strategy of the core area. Prior to the finalization of the development plan for the core area, additional consideration of this adjacent property must be taken into account. This is the single largest property within the TOD and it lies within all three TOD districts. Additionally, this property is adjacent to some of the City’s most desirable amenities such as Gemini Springs and the regional Spring-to-Spring bicycle/pedestrian trial system. Incorporation of this property into the development strategy will ensure a more cohesive, interconnected and predictable development pattern within the
largest areas of the TOD.
Cost and Funding:
The cost for the additional service is $14,000 and provided for in the fy 17 general fund budget.
Approve the additional services contract as provided above.
