Information
ITEM
Consider an ordinance setting a public hearing to discuss and review the update of the land use assumptions, capital improvements plan and impact fees.
PREFACE
This proposed ordinance sets a public hearing to discuss and review the update of the land use assumptions, capital improvements plan ("CIP"), and impact fees.

On May 28, 2020, the City of Baytown entered into a consulting services agreement with Carollo Engineers, Inc., to update the City's land use assumptions and CIP, upon which documents the City's impact fees are based. The City is seeking to amend the CIP to expand the eligible projects that can use impact fees.

The City Council is required by the Local Government Code to set a public hearing to discuss and review the update and determine whether to amend the assumptions, plan and impact fee. This proposed ordinance sets the public hearing for August 26, 2021, at 6:45 p.m. in the Council Chambers.

Before the 30th day before the public hearing, the City is required to give written notice to persons, who have requested such notice in accordance with Chapter 395 of the Local Government Code, and shall publish notice in newspaper(s) of general circulation in Harris and Chambers Counties. The notice must contain certain statutorily required information, including, the purpose of the hearing, which is to consider the amendment of the land use assumptions and a capital improvements plan and the imposition of an impact fee. The amendments, the land use assumptions, and the capital improvements plan, including the amount of any proposed amended impact fee per service unit, shall be made available on or before the date of the first publication of the notice of public hearing.

At the public hearing, the public will have the opportunity to be heard and present evidence for or against the update; and the City Council will discuss the proposed ordinance amending the land use assumptions, the CIP, and the impact fees.

The Planning and Zoning Commission ("P&Z"), acting as the capital improvements advisory committee, will consider the proposed amendments to the land use assumptions and capital improvements plan and impact fee at its meeting held on July 20, 2021.  P&Z's written comments will be filed before the fifth business day before the date of the public hearing on the amendments.
