IT’S A REAL PLEASURE TO BE HERE. THIS IS LIKE BIRTHING A CHILD, MY STAFF WAS SAYING, BECAUSE IT’S BEEN QUITE A LABOR OF LOVE. SANTA BARBARA IS A TOWN OF ABOUT9 0,000, ACTUALLY A CITY, I’LL CALL IT. OUR METROPOLITAN AREA ISAPPROXIMATELY 200,000, SO WE SERVE THAT WHOLE SOUTH COASTREGION OF SANTA BARBARA. PUBLIC HOUSING FOR US ISBECOMING OUR SMALLEST PROGRAM. WE REFORMED IN 1969 AND GOTGOING IN THE EARLY’ 70 s, AND SO WE’RE NOT AN OLD HOUSINGAUTHORITY COMPARATIVELY SPEAKING, BUT PUBLIC HOUSING WASTHE TICKET. IT WAS THE FUNDING SOURCE TOBUILD UNITS IN THOSE EARLY DAYS AND OUR EARLY DEVELOPMENTS WERETURNKEY. EVENTUALLY WE STAFFED UP TO THEPOINT WHERE WE LIKE PLAYING DEVELOPER AND WE’VE BEEN IN THATDEVELOPER ROLE NOW SOME 35 YEARS DURING MY TENURE THERE.THE MONTERIA IS THE LAST OF OURRAD TRANSACTIONS. GIVEN THAT WE WERE A BUILT-OUTCITY EVEN IN THE’ 70 s, A Slew OF OUR DEVELOPMENTS WERE SCATTEREDSITES. OUR LARGEST WAS 122 SENIORUNITS, BUT IT BECAME OUR SMALLEST PROGRAM WITH 494 UNITSOVER APPROXIMATELY 42 DIFFERENT SITES, SO GETTING THEM THROUGHRAD, WE HAD TO PACKAGE THEM IN CERTAIN GROUPS AND THIS ONEBEING A SITE OF A LITTLE OVER TWO ACRES AND PROBABLY OUR BESTOPPORTUNITY FOR ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT, OUR LAND COSTS, WEDO A LOT OF LITC DEVELOPMENT, SO THE STAFF IS GIFTED IN ITSABILITY TO ACT AS DEVELOPER AND DO THESE, BUT WHEN THIS DESIGNCOMPETITION CAME ALONG, WE THOUGHT WHAT BETTER OPPORTUNITYTO GET SOME EXPERTISE FROM FOLKS THAT DON’T KNOW US, NOT A LOCALARCHITECT WHO COULD TAKE A FRESH LOOK AT AWFUL THIS AND GIVE USTHEIR– AT ALL OF THIS AND GIVE US THEIR IDEAS AND WITH HUD’SGENEROSITY, WE GET IT FROM FREE AND THE STUDENTS’ HARD WORK, WEGET IT.IT MADE PERFECT SENSE TO USBECAUSE WE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THIS SITE. IT HAS FOUR FIVE-BEDROOM UNITS, FOUR FOUR-BEDROOM UNITS, AND 20 THREE-BEDROOM UNITS AND LARGEFAMILY, BECAUSE OF RISING COSTS AFFECTING A LOT OF COMMUNITIES, HAVE ALREADY MOVED OUT OF THE COMMUNITY, PARTICULARLY LOWINCOME. THEY CAN’T WAIT ON OUR LIST LONGENOUGH TO ACCESS THAT FOUR OR FIVE-BEDROOM UNIT GIVEN OUR RENTSTRUCTURE. WE HAVE A VACANCY RATE OF LESSTHAN HALF A PERCENT, THE WORST I’VE SEEN IN MY CAREER. DON’T Do ME TALKING ABOUTINCOME INEQUALITY BECAUSE THAT’S A WHOLE OTHER SPEECH THAT I SEEMTO BE GIVING REGULARLY AT COCKTAIL PARTIES AND IT’SBEGINNING TO AFFECT OUR TOWN AND WE NEED TO DEAL WITH IT. THIS SITE FOR US REPRESENTED ANOPPORTUNITY TO INCREASE DENSITY.WE WANTED TO SEE WHETHER THEREWAS REALLY A NEED FOR THOSE FOUR AND FIVE-BEDROOM UNITS ANYMORE. WE DID NOT FEEL THAT, BUT WEWANTED FRESH EYES ON THAT, SO WE TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE PARTOF THIS. WE WERE SO GLAD TO BE SELECTED. I’M ANXIOUS TO HEAR FROM THESTUDENTS THEMSELVES RATHER THAN FROM ME, SO I WOULD Defer ANYQUESTIONS UNTIL Following the presentation, BUT I’LL BE AROUNDAND LOOK FORWARD TO INTERACTING WITH BOTH THE JUDGING TEAM ASWELL AS ALL THE STUDENTS AND THOSE PRESENT.THANK YOU.[ APPLAUSE ]>> OKAY. NOW WE’LL START THE COMPETITION. IF ALL THE TEAMS EXCEPT THEFIRST WILL LEAVE THE ROOM, WE CAN BEGIN THE PROCESS. AND WE’LL BRING UP TEXAS. >> GOOD AFTERNOON. IN 2013, WE LEARNED THATFAMILIES TODAY WILL–[ AUDIO DIFFICULTY] I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE MEET MONTE RIA, OUR VISION FOR FUTUREHOUSING THAT INCLUDES THE 21 st CENTURY FAMILY, LIFE LONGEDUCATION, AND( INAUDIBLE ). WE HERE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OFTEXAS, I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE OUR TEAM, BRIANNA AND MEGAN ANDBRETT WILL ROUND UP BY TELLING HOW IT’S ALL FINANCIALLYFEASIBLE. BUT BEFORE I HAND OVER TO THEM, A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE APPROACH. HISTORICALLY, PUBLIC HOUSING INTHE U.S.HAS NOT FULLY RECOGNIZED THE IMPORTANCE OFSOCIAL NETWORKS AND THESE ARE ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR LOWINCOME Families WHOSE ACCESS TO RESOURCE IS ALREADY LIMITED. MONTE RIA VILLAGE IS NOT JUST ANOPPORTUNITY TO BUILD MORE HOUSING, BUT TO BUILD SOCIALCAPSULES, AND WE DO THIS IN THREE WAYS. FIRST, WE BUILD RELATIONSHIPS. IT’S NOT Precisely ABOUT Get TOKNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS. IT’S ABOUT HAVING ACCESS TO AWHOLE COMMUNITY OF Reserve AND KNOWLEDGE, ESPECIALLY ITREQUIRES THE LAYERING OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SPACES, INVITING ALLTHE RESIDENTS TO THE SITE TO ENGAGE IN THE EVERYDAYINTERACTIONS SUCH AS COLLECTING THEIR MAIL, SHARING A MEAL, DOING HOMEWORK. SECOND, WE BUILD TRUST. WHEN YOU KNOW WHO YOUR NEIGHBORSARE, YOU KNOW WHO THE OUTSIDERS ARE. WHAT JANE JACOBS CALLS EYES ONTHE STREET IS PASSIVE SURVEILLANCE WHILE YOU WASH YOURDISHES.THIRD, WE BUILD FLEXIBILITY. WE Is a well-known fact that FAMILIES CHANGE. WE RECOGNIZE THE NEED FORINDEPENDENCE WITHIN FAMILIES AND WE ACKNOWLEDGE THE COOPERATIVETIES THAT KEEP FAMILIES AFLOAT. WE DO THIS BY ALLOWING EXTENDEDRELATION FAMILIES TO BE PHYSICALLY CONNECTED. CHERYL WILL TELL YOU HOW THIS ISDONE. I’D LIKE TO BRIEFLY MENTION SOMEOF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE CAME ACROSS IN OUR RESEARCH. SO SANTA BARBARA, LIKE MANYOTHER REGIONS ACROSS THE U.S ., SUFFERS FROM A NUMBER OF ISSUESBROUGHT ABOUT BY 20 th CENTURY PLANNING. 70% OF WORKERS COMMUTE INTOSANTA BARBARA BECAUSE THEY CAN’T AFFORD TO LIVE THERE. THE AVERAGE WAIT LIST FOR ANAFFORDABLE HOME IN SANTA BARBARA IS NINE YEARS, AND 60% OFHOUSEHOLDS ARE BURDENED WITH HOUSEHOLDS– ARE BURDENED WITHHOUSING COSTS, WHICH MEANS THEY’RE PAYING MORE THAN A THIRDOF THEIR INCOMES TOWARDS HOUSING. IF WE LOOK AT THE SITE, SPEEDINGALONG CLIFF DRIVE IS UNMONITORED AND NOISE IS A PROBLEM AND SPEEDAS SAFETY RISK.THE 100 -YEAR FLOODPLAIN IS EVENMORE OF A RISK AS CLIMATE CHANGE APPROACHES AND WEATHER PATTERNSBECOME MORE UNPREDICTABLE. THE SITE ITSELF IS COMPLETELYBROKEN APART WITH INEFFICIENT PARKING AND A LOT OF IMPERVIOUSSURFACES, FRAGMENTING ANY SOCIAL AND GREEN SPACE THAT EXISTS. BUT DESPITE THE MYRIAD OFCHALLENGES BOTH REGIONAL AND AT THE SITE LEVEL, WE SEE A NUMBEROF KEY OPPORTUNITIES. THE EXISTING AFFORDABLE HOUSINGCOMPLEX IS VERY WELL CONNECTED. WITHIN A QUARTER MILE, IT HASACCESS TO REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION AS WELL AS EIGHTBUS STOPS. WITHIN ONE MILE, IT’S GOTDOWNTOWN WITH BUSINESS Facility, HEALTHCARE, AND MEMOST SCHOOLS, INCLUDING THE CITY COLLEGE RIGHT ACROSS THE WAY. SECOND, RESIDENTS ALSO HAVEACCESS TO HIGH-QUALITY OPEN AND RECREATIONAL SPACES. SOME OF THESE INCLUDE THEFOOTHILLS, PERSHING PARK, THE PACIFIC COAST, AND ADJACENT TOTHE PROPERTY, THE RANCHERO COMMUNITY GARDENS. LAST BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, MONTERIA VILLAGE AS PUBLICLY OWNED PRIME REAL ESTATE, MEANING FORUS, AT 28 Groups, IT IS UNDERUTILIZED BUT ABOUT THEPOTENTIAL TO HAVE MANY MORE LOW INCOME FAMILIES. WITH THAT, I WILL Manage ITOVER TO SARAH TO INTRODUCE THE SITE AND TALK ABOUT OUR FIRSTVALUE .>> Thanks for coming. AS TAYLOR MENTIONED, OUR TEAMIDENTIFIED THREE KEY ISSUES MAKING THE SITE DESIGN ITSELF, INCLUDING DENSITY, SOCIAL INTEGRITY AND TRANSPORTATION. TO Make Advantage OF THISEXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY AND PROVIDE MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS, OUR PROPOSAL TAPS INTO AVAILABLE DENSITY ALLOWANCES OFFERED BYTHE CITY. GOING BEYOND THE SPRIEBZ GOAL OF3 4 UNITS, WE PROVIDE 65 HOMES. WE WROTE PROPOSE A THREE-STORYDESIGN. THE DESIGN ALSO ACCOMMODATES THEEXISTING FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER AND A NEW EDUCATIONCENTER WHICH BRIANNA WILL EXPAND UPON LATER. WITH MORE UNITS ON SITE, THENEED FOR BENEFICIAL SOCIAL SPACE IS PARAMOUNT. AFTER OTHER VISIT TO THEVILLAGE, IT BECAME APPARENT THAT THE EXISTING COMMUNITY LACKSCLEAR THRESHOLDS, DISTINCT SOCIAL CENTER AND SUFFERS FROMEXECUTIVE VEHICLE INFRASTRUCTURE.THE PRIMARY CORNER ISDISCONCERTINGLY NOISY AND EXISTING PARKING COMPLETELY BYSECTS THE SITE. TO REMEDY THE ISSUES, WE’REPROPOSING WORKING WITH THE CITY TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS TO THESTREETSCAPE, INCLUDING THE RENOVEL OF A ONE-WAY FOOT STREETAT THE EXISTING BUT STOP TO RECLAIM THE CURRENTLY UNUSABLETRAFFIC ISLAND. THIS WILL SERVE AS AN IMPROVEDBUS SHELTER WITH NEW PEDESTRIAN CROSSWALKS AND A VEGETATED SOUNDSCREEN, RESULTING IN A SAFER, SLOWER INTERSECTION. WITHIN THE SITE, THE INEFFICIENTDRIVE AISLES ARE ELIMINATED AND CHOOSING A CENTRAL OPEN AREA, AND THIS CREATING A HEALTHIER AND SAFER SOCIAL SPACE AT THEHEART OF THE COMMUNITY THAT IS SERVES AS A BENEFICIAL STEPPINGSTONE FOR BIODIVERSITY. LASTLY, A Motley OFTRANSPORTATION Solaces ARE PROPOSED TO SUPPORT THE NEW SITECONCEPT, AIMED AT REDUCING PRIVATE AUTOMOBILE OWNERSHIP. OUR TEAM BELIEVES IN A CITY LIKESANTA BARBARA WHERE BUS SERVICE IS REGULARLY PROVIDED, ANAVERAGE COMMUTE IS LESS THAN 120 MINUTES, THERE’S –A 20 MINUTES, THERE’S A REAL OPPORTUNITY TO EMBRACE A MULTIMOBILE TOOLKIT.THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS, RESIDENTSARE ENCOURAGED TO USE AVAILABLE PUBLIC TRANSIT WITH FREE BUSPASSES. MAINTENANCE FACILITIES ARE ALSOPROVIDED ON SITE FOR HEALTHIER BIKE COMMUTES AND MOSTIMPORTANTLY, PARKING RATIOS ARE MINIMIZED BASED ON AVAILABLEREDUCTIONS THROUGH THE STATE MANDATED COASTAL ZONE OVER LAY. WE PROPOSE FIVE SPOT DEDICATEDTO A FLEET OF ELECTRIC CAR VEHICLES. RATHER THAN PUTTING COSTLYPARKING STRUCTURES IN PLACE, THE MULTI MOBILE TOOLKIT IS A MORESUSTAINABLE SOLUTION THAT SAVES RESIDENTS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AYEAR FOR CARS NOT OWNED. MOVING FURTHER INTO THE DETAILOF THE UNITS THEMSELVES, OUR TEAM WORKED TO ENSURE THAT EVERYHOME WAS GIVEN EQUAL CONSIDERATION AND HAD A STRONGCONNECTION TO THIS NEWLY CREATED SOCIAL HEART.PUBLIC AND PRIVATE Cavity ARECLEARLY DEFINED AT THE SITE’S BOUNDARIES THROUGH THE USE OFSMALL GATES AND ENTRY ARBORS. DEFENSIBLE SPACE IS CREATED WITHLOW WALLS TO BUFFER UNITS FROM STREET AND PARKING EDGES. SIMILARLY AT THE UPPER FLOORS, A10-FOOT WIDE CIRCULATION DECK ENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO CLAIMTHE AREA OUTSIDE THEIR HOME. EVERY UNIT HAS ACCESS TO PRIVATEPATIOS OR TERRACES. ALSO INTEGRAL TO THE STRATEGY ISTHE RELOCATION OF THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER.PREVIOUSLY AT THE BACK OF THESITE, IT’S NOW CENTRALIZED TO BETTER ENGAGE FAMILIES ANDPROVIDE STAFF AND RESIDENTS WITH MORE SPACE. THE BUILDING BUFFERS THECOURTYARD FROM ADJACENT PARKING AND IS ENHANCED WITH OVERHEADDOORS THAT SPILL OUT TO A COMMUNITY PLAZA. A NEW PLAY SPACE IS NESTLEDOPPOSITE FROM THIS, HIDDEN FROM PUBLIC STREET VIEW, BUTMONITORED BY SURROUNDING UNITS. CHILDREN AND PROGRAM UNITSPROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL RESIDENTS TO INTERACT. THE UNITS THEMSELVES PROVIDEOPTIONAL FLEXIBILITY THAT BENEFIT MODERN FAMILY NETWORKS. IT Adds A SIMPLE DUAL ASPECTFLOOR PLAN, BUT WHERE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS CAN LIVE NEARBYWHILE MAINTAINING THEIR OWN LEASE UNIT. FOR EXAMPLE, SINGLE PARENTFAMILIES CAN– IN TWO STORIES, A DOORS PROVIDED ON BOTH LEVELSTO CREATE A SENSE OF INDEPENDENCE FOR EXTENDED OROLDER FAMILY MEMBERS SUCH AS GRANDPARENTS, AUNTS OR UNCLES, OR AN OLDER CHILD WORKING THEIR WAY THROUGH COLLEGE. IT IS THE NESTING OF HOMES ANDSOCIAL SPACE THAT FOSTERS THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY OUR TEAMBELIEVES IS VITAL TO LONG-TERM HEALTH AND HAPPINESS OF THERESIDENTS. COLLABORATE MORE ON THE SECONDCORE VALUE OF OUR PROPOSAL, LIFELONG EDUCATION, I’LL HANDLEIT OVER TO BRIANNA .>> CURRENTLY, SANTA BARBARA’SLOWEST EARNING FAMILIES HAVE THE LEAST ECONOMIC MOBILITY AND ONEREASON FOR THIS IS EDUCATION. OUR PROPOSAL MODELS ITSEDUCATION STRATEGIES ON SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS, INCLUDINGHUD’S PROMISE ZONES AND SAN ANTONIO’S PROJECT QUEST. THESE PROGRAMS TACKLE POVERTYAND INCOME SEGREGATION THROUGH A HOLISTIC APPROACH OF ADDRESSINGCOMMUNITY NEEDS, INCLUDING SCHOOL EDUCATION, HEALTHEDUCATION, AND JOB SKILLS TRAINING.OUR PROPOSAL WILL TEACHRESIDENTS TO LIVE MORE SUSTAINABLY. FOR EXAMPLE, RESIDENTS WILLLEARN HOW THE FINANCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF THEMULTI MOBILE TOOLKIT CAN IMPROVE THEIR LIVES. Tenants WILL HAVE TWOLOCATIONS TO ADDRESS EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC MOBILITY. FIRST, THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITYCENTER AND THE SECOND IS THE EDUCATION CENTER. FIRST, THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITYCENTER IS DOING AN AMAZING JOB AT ADDRESSING THE NEEDS OF THECHILDREN WITHIN THE SANTA BARBARA HOUSING AUTHORITYCOMMUNITY TODAY. SO BY RELOCATING IT TO THE HEARTOF THE SITE, IT WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER Business AND ACTIVITIESTHAT YOUNG CHILDREN TO MIDDLE SCHOOL AGED CHILDREN ARE ALREADYRECEIVING. IN ADDITION, OUR PROPOSALPROVIDES A SEPARATE SPACE CALLED THE EDUCATION CENTER.THIS IS A SPACE THAT HIGH SCHOOLSTUDENTS AND ADULTS OF ALL AGES CAN SEEK A QUIET SPACE TO FOCUS, TO SEEK EDUCATIONAL GUIDANCE AND EXPAND THEIR SKILL Plan. THE CENTER WILL PARTNER WITHNONPROFITS, LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, PRIVATE BUSINESSES, AND CITYCOLLEGES JUST ACROSS THE STREET TO PROVIDE COLLEGE PREPARATIONCLASSES LIKE ONE-ON-ONE COUNSELING. DDD GRADUATES ARE MORE LIKELY TOATTEND COLLEGE, SEEK WORKFORCE TRAINING PROGRAMS OR ALSO SEEKEMPLOYMENT. THEREFORE, THE CENTER WILL NOTONLY HAVE AN EDUCATION COMPONENT, BUT ALSO WILL PROVIDEAN ECONOMIC FOCUS AS WELL. AN EXISTING DEPARTMENT WITHINCITY COLLEGE IS ALREADY IN PLACE AND CALLED THE WORK EXPERIENCEDEPARTMENT. THIS DEPARTMENT WILL ALLOWRESIDENTS TO ACCESS AND UTILIZE EXISTING PROGRAMS SUCH AS SKILLSTRAINING AND WORKFORCE TRAINING. THIS Qualify WILL BE ABLE TOCONNECT WORKFORCE SUPPLY WITH WORKFORCE DEMAND. For example, THE COUNTY OF SANTABARBARA HAS ALREADY BEGUN TO IDENTIFY SOME OCCUPATIONS INHIGH DEMAND AND IN NEED OF NEW EMPLOYEES. THEREFORE, CITY COLLEGE CANOUTREACH TO THESE OCCUPATIONS AND CUSTOMIZE TRAINING FOR OURCITIZENS.THOSE THAT PARTICIPATE ARE MORELIKELY TO SEE AN INCREASE IN THEIR ANNUAL INCOME OVER TIMECOMPARED TO NONPARTICIPANTS. THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF OURPROGRAMS ARE TO IMPROVE THE ECONOMIC MOBILITY OF OURCOMMUNITY. BY SUBSIDIZING EDUCATION COSTSAND PROVIDING SERVICES ONSITE. JOB PLACEMENT IS NOT THE ONLYGOAL. WE Likewise WILL PROVIDE ONGOINGFINANCIAL EDUCATION TO IMPROVE THE FINANCIAL LITERACY OF ALLOUR RESIDENTS. CAN, THIS I’LL PASS IT ON TOMEGAN WHO WILL DISCUSS OUR THIRD VALUE, SUSTAINABILITY .>> WE BELIEVE A HOLISTICCOMMUNITY IS ONE THAT Engages AND EDUCATES THE RESIDENTS. THE EXISTING BUILDINGS ARE NOTMEETING THE CURRENT NEEDS OF THE RESIDENTS OR THE AFFORDABLEHOUSING DEMAND IN SANTA BARBARA. WITH THE INCREASED DENSITY OFOUR PROPOSAL, WE CREATE A PLATFORM FOR NEW SUSTAINABLEAFFORDABLE HOUSING. USING THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITYCENTER, WE’RE ABLE TO EDUCATE THE RESIDENTS ON OUR THREE KEYGOALS, WHICH ARE REDUCING THE CONSUMPTION OF ENERGY, WATER, AND INCREASING BIODIVERSITY IN THE SITE. THE NEW PROPOSAL IS A ROOFTOPSOLAR ARRAY SYSTEM PROVIDING 90% OF THE ELECTRICITY NEEDED FORTHE SITE AND HOUSING DEVELOPMENT. WE ALSO INCORPORATED THERMALENERGY AND RAINWATER STORAGE SYSTEM TO ALLEVIATE THE ENERGYNEEDED DURING PEAK HOURS, SO IT CAN Change IT OFF OF THAT ANDALLEVIATE THE PRICE OF ELECTRICITY. SECONDLY, WITH CONCERNS OFINCREASED WATER DEMANDS AS POPULATION INCREASES AND HIGHERNUMBER OF DROUGHTS THROUGHOUT THE NATION, WE FOCUSED ON WATERCONSERVATION AND REUSE THROUGHOUT THE SITE.THE ROOFS ARE ALL USED TOCOLLECT RAINWATER FOR IRRIGATION ON THE SITE AND THE GRAY WATERFOR THE SINKS AND SHOWERS IS BEING USED– REUSED FOR THEWATER Wardrobes AND BEING SENT BACK TO THE CITIES’S WATERTREATMENT Facilities. Gale Liquid, WE’RE INCORPORATINGSWALES IN THE 100 -YEAR FLOODPLAIN AND ON THE SITE TOALLEVIATE THAT STRESS AS WELL AS USING PERVIOUS PAVERS ON THESITE AND ALLOWING FOR 70% OF THE TOTAL SITE TO BE PERVIOUS. OUR THIRD GOAL IS THEBIODIVERSITY. BY USING NATIVE ANDDROUGHT-TOLERANT PLANTS, LOW WATER CONSUMPTION, INCREASEDBIODIVERSITY FROM OUR SITE AND THE SURROUNDING PARK. WE’RE Use THE GREEN SCREEN INTHE TRELLISES WHICH INCORPORATED PRIVACY, SHADING AND BRINGING INPOLLINATORS TO THE SITE TO HELP WITH THAT AS WELL. THE OVERALL GOALS ARE TO EDUCATERESIDENTS ON SUSTAINABLE APPROACHES WHICH CAN LEND TOFUTURE SELF-SUFFICIENCY, ENERGY AND WATER CONSUMPTION LOWERED, AND THE MUCH GREATER ENVIRONMENTAL AND FINANCIALSAVINGS. WITH THIS, I’D LIKE TO HAND ITOVER TO BRETT FOR THE FINANCIALS. >> A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THEFINANCIALS THAT WILL MAKE THIS PROJECT A POTENTIAL REALITY. FIRST, OUR TOTAL PROJECT COSTWILL BE $17 MILLION.WE DERIVED HARD AND SOFT COSTSFROM DATA GATHERED FROM MEANS WITH 8 AND 5% CONTINGENCIESBASED ON CONVERSATIONS WITH DEVELOPERS. OUR GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE COSTSWERE DETERMINED VIA DEVELOPER CONVERSATIONS AND QUOTES FROMSPECIALTY INSTALLERS. OVER ALL, OUR HARD COSTS MAKE UP6 2% OF THE COST. SOFT COSTS COME IN AT 19% ANDTHE GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE WILL COME IN AT 5.5%. OUR MAIN SOURCE OF FUDING WILLBE 9– FUNDING WILL BE 9% LOW INCOME HOUSING TAX CREDITS. WITH 100% OF THE UNITS ON THESITE DEDICATED TOWARDS AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WELL INCLUDETHE CONSTRUCTION COSTS OF THE RESIDENTIAL UNITS AS WELL AS THEGREEN INFRASTRUCTURE IN OUR ELIGIBLE BASIS. ALONG WITH THE 30% BASIS BOOSTTHAT COMES FROM BEING IN A DIFFICULT DEVELOPMENT AREA ANDTHE SYNDICATION OF THESE CREDITS AT $1.06 BASED ON CURRENTCALIFORNIA RATES, WE WERE ABLE TO GET APPROXIMATELY $4.2 MILLION IN TAX CREDITS, WHICH WILL FUND OVER 83% OF THEPROJECT COSTS. REMAINING FUNDING DURINGCONSTRUCTION WILL COME IN THE FORM OF A CONSTRUCTION LOAN. Located ON CONVERSATIONS WITHBANKS, THE DEAL WITH HUD CONSTRUCTION LOANS, WEDETERMINED THAT 4.1 WAS A REASONABLE RATE FOR SUCH A LOAN. BY USING THE TAX CREDITSOPERATING INCOME AND GRANT STOP PAY DOWN THE LOAN AS THEY ARERECEIVED THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT, WE EXPECT THE LOAN TO BE PAID INFULL BEFORE MONTH 48 OR AT THE END OF YEAR THREE.WE’VE BROKEN DOWN THE PROJECTINTO TWO PHASES. THESE Chapters WILL HELP MINIMIZETHE DISPLACEMENT OF CURRENT RESIDENTS AS WELL AS ALLOW FORSOME INCOME DURING THE CONSTRUCTION PERIOD TO HELPDEFRAY SOME OF THE COSTS AND ALLOW FOR ADDITIONAL LOANPAYMENTS DURING CONSTRUCTION. OPERATING EXPENSES AT $ 5,000 PERUNIT ARE ALL-INCLUSIVE. BASED ON CALIFORNIA TAX CREDITALLOCATION COMMITTEE ANNUAL OPERATING EXPENSE REPORTS FORSIMILAR PROJECTS. WITH THAT, I WILL Administer ITOVER TO TATUM TO CONCLUDE. >>( INAUDIBLE) AND RENEWABLEENERGY THAT WE HAVE PROPOSED, CAN AND POTENTIALLY HAS A GREATIMPACT ON THE RESIDENTS OF MONTE RIA VILLAGE TODAY AND FORGENERATIONS TO COME. YET, THERE IS APPLICATION JUSTBEYOND THE SITE. A RECENT STUDY BY THE URBANINSTITUTE SAID THAT NOT A SINGLE COUNTY IN THE U.S. HAS ENOUGHAFFORDABLE HOUSING, SO THE HOUSING CRISIS IS NATIONAL ANDGROWING. THOUGHTFUL, YET TACTICAL ANDREPLICABLE, THE IDEAS THAT WE HAVE PROPOSED, IF APPLIED ACROSSHOUSING PROJECTS IN THE U.S ., HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO REDEFINEHOUSING IN AMERICA AT A TIME WHEN WE NEED IT MOST.THANK YOU.[ APPLAUSE ]>> WE’RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND START WITH JURY QUESTIONS. AS WE TEE IT OFF, ONE OF THETHINGS TO BE THINKING ABOUT IN YOUR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ISTHIS COMPETITION IS ALSO ABOUT INNOVATION. SO PLEASE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITYTO DESCRIBE WHAT YOU WERE THINKING ABOUT IN TERMS OFINNOVATION IN THIS PROJECT BEFORE US. >> YES, THANK YOU. THAT WAS VERY GOOD. A Fortune OF HARD WORK ON THIS ANDIT SHOWS. EXPLAIN TO ME A LITTLE ABOUT THEPHASE ONE, PHASE TWO PLAN.IS THAT WITH ONE PLAN OFFINANCE, OR IS THAT TWO SEPARATE TAX CREDIT AWARDS? >> THE TAX CREDITS WERECALCULATED AS A HOLISTIC NUMBER AND WE ASSUMED THAT WE WOULD GET1 0% AT THE BEGINNING OF PHASE ONE. THE REMAINING TAX CREDITS WOULDBE SPREAD OUT THROUGHOUT PHASES ONE AND TWO WITH A FINAL 10% COMING AT COMPLETION OF PHASE TWO AND LASTLY, AN ADDITIONAL1 0% AT STABILIZATION OF PHASE TWO .>> AND THE PHASE ONE, PHASE TWO WAS ESSENTIALLY FOR THE– TOHELP WITH RELOCATION AND MINIMIZE DISPLACEMENT OF THEEXISTING RESIDENTS? >> BOTH THAT AND ONCE PHASE ONEIS COMPLETE, WE START PHASE TWO AND THAT WILL BRING IN A LITTLEBIT OF OPERATING INCOME TO HELP PAY SOME OF THE INTEREST COSTS, BUT THE– WE ALSO DID THAT TO MINIMIZE THE DISPLACEMENT OF THECURRENT RESIDENTS .>> THAT’S VERY– THAT’S REALLYIMPORTANT. Thanks for coming. >> SO THANK YOU FOR THATPRESENTATION. IT’S REALLY GREAT TO SEE HOWYOU’RE Recommendation HAS Evolved FROM YOUR INITIAL SUBMISSION. ONE QUESTION I HAD FOR YOU ALLIS, AS YOU THOUGHT ABOUT ADDING UNITS TO THE SITE, DID YOUCONSIDER INTRODUCING SOME MARKET RATE UNITS TO CREATE A MIXEDINCOME DEVELOPMENT, AND HOW DID YOU THINK THAT THROUGH? >> WE DID. WE Unquestionably WANTED TO ADDRESSTHE CURRENT RESIDENTS THAT WOULD BE IN PLACE AND THEN WE ALSORECOGNIZED THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE THAT AMAZING REAL ESTATE FORAFFORDABLE HOUSING. WE CONSIDERED PLANNING WITH THE( INAUDIBLE) BUT WE LEAVE IT UP TO THE DISCRETION OF THE HOUSINGAUTHORITY. THEY FLUCTUATE THAT THROUGHOUTTHE YEAR AS THEY NEED FOR RESIDENTS( INAUDIBLE) BUT WE DIDREALLY TARGET THIS AS 100% AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO ADDRESSTHOSE FAMILIES’ NEEDS .>> THE JURY IS PARTICULARLYINTERESTED IN HOW YOU ARRIVED AT 65 Components. YOU HAD A Pile OF OPTIONS ANDWHERE YOU FELT– THERE’S OBVIOUSLY A TREMENDOUS NEED, ANDMORE UNITS WOULD BE GREAT. LESS MIGHT BE EASIER TO DO, SOHOW DID YOU ARRIVE AT THE 65 -UNIT PLAN? >> WE LOOKED AT A NUMBER OFDIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS ON SITE, BUT AGAIN, CORE TO OURSOCIAL VALUES WAS LEAVING ENOUGH SPACE TO REALLY, YOU KNOW, BEABLE TO GIVE EVERY UNIT ACCESS TO THAT. SO WE, You are familiar with, TRIED TO WORKWITH DEFINING STREET EDGES, BEING SOMEWHAT SENSITIVE TO THEADJACENT COMMUNITY AS WELL, EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE, You are familiar with, THEY’RE CURRENTLY FENCES BETWEEN THEM, BUT BEING SENSITIVE TOTHAT AS WELL AND, LIKE I SAID, THAT WAS BASED ON OUR VARIOUSKIND OF MOVING AROUND OF UNITS AND EVERYTHING, WHAT WE FELTWORKS BEST AROUND THIS KIND OF SOCIAL CENTER .>> OKAY, GREAT. >> THANKS FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. IT’S Certainly WONDERFUL. A COUPLE QUESTIONS. ONE, I’M CURIOUS ABOUT HOW YOUDECIDED ON THE PLACEMENT OF THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER. AND IS THAT Aimed FOR JUSTRESIDENTS OR FOR FOLKS FROM OUTSIDE THIS PARTICULARDEVELOPMENT? AND THEN ALSO, I’M CURIOUS ABOUTHOW YOU– THE CALCULATION OF THE 90% OF THE ENERGY WASPRODUCED ONSITE. >> I CAN Refute THE FIRST PART. IF YOU REMEMBER FROM PHASE ONE, WE HAD THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER ON THE STREET. ASSUMING THAT’S BOTH THEEDUCATION CENTER AND FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER WOULD BESOMEWHAT PUBLIC, BUT AFTER VISITING SANTA BARBARA ANDSPEAKING TO BOTH THE HOUSING AUTHORITY AND THE WOMAN WHOLIVES– THE SERVICE MANAGER WHO LIVES ONSITE, SHE DESCRIBED THESORT OF EVERYDAY LIFE IN THE FOC, WHICH WAS MAINLY PRIVATEAND FOCUSED ON RESIDENTS, SO WE THOUGHT THAT HAVING THESE TWOSOMEWHAT PUBLIC PROGRAMS, ONE WOULD HAVE A VERY SPECIFIC ROLEFOR THE RESIDENTS AND THE OTHER ONE WOULD BE MORE OF AN OUTREACHTO THE PUBLIC .>> AND FOR THE SOLAR, WE USEDTHE AVERAGE OF WHAT PEOPLE ARE USING IN SANTA BARBARA, WHICHWAS LIKE 597, ROUNDING UP 597 KILOWATT HOURS PER MONTH, WEROUNDED UP TO 600 AND U.K. THE HIGH EFFICIENCY SOLAR PANELS ONTHE ROOF, WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE 90% PER YEAR CALCULATED ATAN AVERAGE OF 600 KILO WATT HOURS PER MONTH, PLUS AVERAGESFOR THE FAMILY AND EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY CENTERS AND THOSE WEBASED ON SQUARE FOOTAGE FOR OTHER EDUCATION CENTERS THATWOULD BE USING THE COMPUTER POWER AND SO FORTH. THAT WAS THE HARDEST TO FINDWHAT THAT WAS, BUT USING THE HIGH EFFICIENCY SOLAR PANELMANY, WE WERE ABLE TO DO THAT AND WITH THE THERMAL ENERGY ANDRAINWATER STORAGE SYSTEM, IT Poises THAT AS WELL AND WEHAVE THEM ON TOP OF ALL THE WATER CISTERNS COLLECTING THERAINWATER ONSITE .>> VERY GOOD PRESENTATION, THANKYOU. IN THE SINK AND SHOWER WATER, THE REUSE OF THE WATER, HOW DOES THE PURIFICATION SYSTEM WORK? >> MAGIC.[ LAUGHTER] NO, FOR EACH UNIT, “Were having” A DIFFERENT FILTRATION– OR EACHBLOCK OF THE BUILDING, “Were having” ITS OWN FILTRATION SYSTEM ONSITE IF ITS MECHANICAL ROOM AND IT WOULD FILTER THAT WATERTHROUGH A SIMPLE FILTRATION, DIFFERENT SAND AND CHARCOALFILTERS, WHICH BASICALLY IS STAYING OUT HARD OBJECTS MOSTLYAND USING THAT AS SOMETHING THAT BACKS THROUGH IN THE APARTMENTSAS WELL. >> SO YOU’RE REUSING YOUR OWNWATER. >> WE’RE REUSING OUR OWN GRAYWATER PER BUILDING BLOCK AND USING THAT FOR THE WATER CLOSETAND THEN IT’S SENT BACK TO THE CITY. SO THERE’S THE TWO LINESBASICALLY. THE WATER FROM THE SINKS ANDSHOWERS IS BUILT INTO ONE AREA.THAT’S BEING FILTERED, PUMPEDBACK TO THE WATER CLOSET AND THE WATER CLOSET GOES OFF TO THECITY. >> AND DID YOU HAVE A PLAN B IFYOU WEREN’T ABLE TO GET THE 9% Credit? >> SORRY, SAY THAT AGAIN? >> DID YOU HAVE A PLAN B IF YOUWEREN’T ABLE TO GET THE 90% CREDIT? >> NOT A PLAN B, BUT WE DID HAVEA LIST OF ADDITIONAL GRANTS THAT WERE OFTEN AWARDED TO SIMILARPROJECTS. SO IF THE 9% Awards DIDN’T COMETHROUGH, WE DID HAVE ADDITIONAL FUNDING THAT WOULD BE POSSIBLE, BUT WE WOULD HAVE TO Make OUT A LARGER CONSTRUCTION LOAN, WHICHWOULD TAKE LONGER TO PAY BACK.IN ADDITION, I LOOKED AT PERMLOANS IN CASE THE– WITHOUT THE 9% Concessions, WE WOULD BE PAYINGTHEM BACK WITH OPERATING INCOME, WHICH WOULD Make A LITTLE BITLONGER. >> “Were having” ONE OTHER QUESTIONREGARDING THE MONEY VACATION. YOU PROBABLY LOOKED AT–REGARDING THE INNOVATION. YOU PROBABLY LOOKED AT OTHERPROJECTS AS PART OF YOUR RESEARCH AND YOU PUT A LOT OFVERY CREATIVE ELEMENTS INTO THERE PROJECT. WHAT ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL MAKESIT INNOVATIVE? >> I Ponder THAT OUR APPROACH TOTHE SOCIAL STRATEGY IS ONE WAY THAT WE FEEL WE PUT A LOT OFTIME AND THOUGHT INTO AND MAKES IT INNOVATIVE, ALTHOUGH IT’S ASIMPLE– IT CAN BE SIMPLE.A LOT OF HOUSING PROJECTS THATHAVE HAD ISSUES IN THE PAST HAVE NOT DONE THAT AND LIKE TATUM, IT’S THOUGHTFUL BUT PRACTICAL AND REPLICABLE. THAT’S ONE THING, LIKE I SAID, WE CENTERED THAT AND LET IT PERMEATE THROUGHOUT EVERYTHING, EVERY DECISION WE MADE ABOUT UNITS, WHERE THOSE Were discovered, THE LAYERING OF SOCIAL SPACE. AS TO THE EDUCATION ASPECT OFTAKING ADVANTAGE TO THESE NEARBY AGENCIES, THE CITY COLLEGE, ONEOF THE TOP-RATED COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN THE NATION, AND IKNOW THERE’S, AS WITH COLLEGES, THERE’S Always A SLIGHTLYTENUOUS Affinity THAT POPS UP, BUT WE Envision THAT TURNINGTHAT INTO A POSITIVE FOR THE SITE IS ALSO REALLY INNOVATIVESTRATEGY. >> AND THE CULMINATION OF OURTHREE VALUES IS SOMETHING THAT’S QUITE NEW TO PUBLIC HOUSINGBECAUSE IT WAS ALWAYS SEEN AS A PLACE OF TRANSITION WHERE WEWANTED TO GET FAMILIES IN AND MOVE THEM UP QUITE QUICKLY, ALBEIT A NUMBER OF YEARS.WE SEE THIS AS NOT MAYBE APERMANENT PLACE. WE’D LIKE PEOPLE TO MOVE ON IFTHEY CAN AND WHEN THEY’RE READY, BUT WE Interpret CREATING– WE’RECREATING SPACES THAT REPRESENT STABILITY AND ROOTEDNESS. >> AND I’LL ALSO ADD THAT OURPARKING STRATEGY IS VERY– WE ATTEMPTING TO LOOK INTO THEFUTURE AND SEE THE POTENTIAL TO GET ALONG WITHOUT SUCH HEAVYDEPENDENCE ON AUTOMOBILE USAGE AND THAT FURTHER REINFORCES USEOF PUBLIC AMENITIES THAT ARE PROVIDED LIKE TRANSIT ANDENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO USE THEIR OWN COSTS IN A MOREEFFECTIVE WAY. >> WE HAD ANOTHER QUESTION. >> I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT THEUNIT DESIGN. SO YOUR CONCEPT ABOUT HAVING AFLEXIBLE UNITS THAT COULD BE ADDED TO AND SUBTRACTED FROM ITHOUGHT WAS GREAT AND THAT WAS PART OF SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT MYEYE IN YOUR ORIGINAL PROPOSAL. YOU TALKED ABOUT A — MORE ABOUTTHE CONCEPT .>> THAT’S A FOUR-BEDROOM UNDER ATWO-STORY UNIT AND WE’RE PROVIDING DOORS ON BOTH LEVELSAND THAT WAS THE EXAMPLE WE PROVIDED IF THERE’S AN EXTENDEDFAMILY MEMBER– >> YOU’VE USED ALL YOUR TIME. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.[ APPLAUSE ]>> HI, EVERYBODY. MY NAME IS DOUG WITH THEUNIVERSITY OF KANSAS. TWO OF MY TEAMMATES, RYAN, KATIE, COLLIN THOMPSON, NOT TO BE Perplexed WITH COLLIN THOMASAND WE WANT TO SAY Thanks for coming FOR BEING HERE. WE’RE REALLY EXCITED TO BE HERE. THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT FROMKU AND EVERYBODY BACK HOME OUT THERE WATCHING US, AND WE’REJUST REALLY EXCITED FOR WHAT WE FEEL IS, YOU KNOW, WE’RECONFIDENT THAT, You are familiar with, WHAT WE PROVIDED IS GOING TO BE AREALLY GREAT SOLUTION FOR THE FUTURE OF AFFORDABLE FAMILYHOUSING. BUT FIRST OFF, I’D LIKE YOU ALLTO THINK WITH ME FOR A MOMENT, IF YOU WOULD, THINK ABOUTFAMILY.FAMILIES AREN’T UNIFORM. THEY’RE NOT ALL THE SAME SHAPEOR SIZE. THEY DON’T ALL REQUIRE THE SAMEAMOUNT OF SPACE OR Resource, BUT FAMILIES ARE ALL BUILT ONRELATIONSHIPS. THESE RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THECOMMUNITY AND WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARE THE BASIS FORWHAT WE SEE IN HOW OUR CHILDREN GROW. NOW, I’M NOT A PARENT, I CAN’TCLAIM TO UNDERSTAND THE HARDSHIPS OF RAISING A CHILD, BUT RECOGNIZING THAT 45% OF HOUSEHOLDS RECEIVING VOUCHERS INFAMILY HOUSING ARE HEADED BY A SINGLE PARENT, You are familiar with, WE NEEDTO RETHINK THE ENVIRONMENT THAT WE PROVIDE FOR OUR Kinfolk. SO WITH THIS IN MIND, BEFORE WEEVEN JUMP INTO THE BUILDING DESIGN, WE THOUGHT ABOUT WHO ARETHESE FAMILIES THAT ARE GOING TO BE LIVING HERE, WHAT ARE THEIRREQUIREMENTS, WHAT ARE THEIR DAY-TO-DAY NEEDS, WHATACTIVITIES CAN WE PROVIDE THEM TO SUPPORT THEM AND, You are familiar with, WHAT IF THERE IS AN ABILITY FOR THE COMMUNITY AND THE BUILDINGIN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD TO ACTUALLY LEND A HELPING HAND.SO For example, A SINGLE MOTHERWHO HAS A CHILD TO GET HOME AND SHE HAS TO COME HOME TO TAKECARE OF HER CHILD FROM WORK AND HER INCOME IS AFFECTED, YOUKNOW, THAT PUTS THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION AT RISK. NOW, IMAGINE IF SHIRLEY, ANELDERLY RESIDENT LIVING ONSITE, WAS ABLE TO BE THAT HELPING HANDAND COME OUT AND PROVIDE SUPPORT AND CARE FOR HER CHILD WHILESHE, INSTEAD OF HAVING TO COME HOME AND MISS WORK. WHAT WE FOUND EXAMINING THETRADITIONAL MODEL OF FAMILY HOUSING IS THAT WE’RE NOTPROVIDING THE SUPPORT NETWORK, AND YOU KNOW, WE ASKED HOW CANWE REDEVELOP A NEW TYPOLOGY FOR FAMILY HOUSING TO BE SOCIALLYSUSTAINABLE FOR THE FUTURE. SO IN LINE WITH BETTY ANDSHIRLEY’S EXAMPLE, ONE OF THE BIGGEST OPPORTUNITIES WE FOUNDWAS WITHIN ONE OF TODAY’S LARGEST Ripening DEMOGRAPHICS ANDTHAT’S OUR AGING POPULATION. THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHAND HUMAN Service PREDICTS THAT BY 2040, ONE IN FIVE PEOPLE INTHE UNITED STATES WILL BE OVER THE AGE OF 65. AND CENSUS DATA SHOWS THAT OVERTWO-THIRDS OF OUR FAMILIES ARE NOT ACTUALLY THE TRADITIONALMARRIED COUPLE WITH TWO CHILDREN. SO IMAGINE IF THE FUTURE OFFAMILY HOUSING PROVIDED THE FOUNDATIONS FOR FAMILIES TO LIVEIN A COMMUNITY WHERE CHILDREN COULD COME HOME FROM SCHOOL ANDNOT JUST BE WITH THEIR FAMILY, NOT JUST BE SECLUDED ANDISOLATED, BUT INTERACT WITH GRANDPARENTS AND OTHER COMMUNITYMEMBERS AND ROLE MODELS IN A HEALTHY AND SAFE ENVIRONMENT.WE BELIEVE THE NEW TYPOLOGY FORFAMILY HOUSING IS NECESSARY FOR THE SUSTAINABLE AND ECONOMICGROWTH FOR OUR FUTURE. >> OUR TEAM’S VISION FOR AFAMILY ORIENTED SINGLE NEIGHBORHOOD INVOLVES FOUR MAJORINNOVATIONS THAT WE BELIEVE WILL LAD DICKALLY CHANGE THE FUTUREOF WITH HOUSING IS AND HOW IT PROVIDERS FOR RESIDENTS. FIRST OF WHICH IS PROGRAM ANDWHAT DOUG WAS TOUCHING ON PREVIOUSLY ABOUT INTEGRATESSENIORS INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD CREATING DIVERSE HOUSING TYPESAND PROGRAMS ON SITE, WE CREATE A COMMUNITY THAT EFFICIENTLYUTILIZES THE SITE AND ALL THE Assets AVAILABLE. SECONDLY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY, BYINTEGRATING THE LATEST OF HEALTH TECHNOLOGY INTO THE FAMILYLIVING CENTER AND ALSO STRATEGIES PROVIDE A COMANT THATBOTH GIVES BACK– COMMUNITY THAT BOTH GIVES BACK TO THEENVIRONMENT AND PROVIDES MUCH BETTER CARE FOR ITS RESIDENTS. THIRD, THROUGH FINANCIALRESOURCES, SO IN CONJUNCTION WITH TYPICALLY LOW HEALTHCAREHOUSING TAX CREDITS AND TYPICAL FINANCIAL METHODS, WE’RE ABLE TOLEVERAGE RESOURCES THROUGH UNIVERSITY PARTNERSHIPS INCALIFORNIA, THROUGH GRANTS AVAILABLE TO UNIVERSITIES TOHELP FUND THE PROJECT AND CREATE THIS BETTER CARE. AND LASTLY, THROUGHCONSTRUCTION. BY RETHINKING HOW WE ACTUALLYBUILD HOUSING, OUR SOLUTION INCLUDES METHODS WHICH PROVIDEBETTER AND MORE SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENTS FOR THOSE BUILDINGTHE PROJECT, DELIVERS A BETTER PRODUCT FASTER AND CHEAPER THANCONVENTIONAL METHODS AND THESE FOUR INNOVATIONS WE BELIEVE CANBE ACTUALLY APPLIED AT A RANCH SCALES ACROSS THE COUNSEL–RANGE OF SCALES ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT CAN CONTINUE TOCHANGE FAMILY HOUSING IN THE FUTURE .>> SO AS WE STARTED TO ANALYZETHE SPECIFIC CONDITIONS OF SANTA BARBARA, TWO THINGS BECAME CLEARTO US ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AND THE FIST WAS THAT THE SURROUNDINGCOMMUNITY ACTUALLY ALREADY HAD EXISTING AMENITIES THAT WE COULDTAP INTO AND THAT INCLUDED THE LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AS WELLAS THE CITY COLLEGE WHICH OFFERS OPPORTUNITIES TOINTERGENERATIONAL EDUCATION RANGING FROM PRIMARY EDUCATIONLEVELS ALL THE WAY UP THROUGH HIGHER ED. THE SECOND THING THAT BECAMEVERY APPARENT WAS THE CLOSE PROXIMITY TO BOTH THE DOWNTOWNDISTRICT AND THE BEACH AND THAT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE ITOFFERS US THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLUG INTO MASS TRANSIT. IT OFFERS US THE OPPORTUNITY TOENGAGE WITH BIKEABLE COMMUNITIES IN MIND AND DESIGN WITHPEDESTRIAN ORIENTED DEVELOPMENTAL OPPORTUNITIES ASWELL. VISITING THE SITE, THE SITEEDGES BECAME APPARENT AND SPECIFICALLY LOOKING OVER HEREAT THE CORNER AND HOW LOUD THAT WITHIN WAS AND HOW BUSY ANDCONGESTED THAT CONDITION WAS, AND WE Immediately Recognise THATIT’S NOT THE KIND OF LOCATION TO PUT ANY NOISE SENSITIVERESIDENTIAL CHILDREN AND LESS OF AN IDEAL CONDITION FOR BETTY’SCHILDREN TO BE RUNNING IN AND OUT OF THEIR HOME, AND TRYING TOENGAGE ANY KIND OF COMMUNITY BUILDING SPACE AND IT’S FOR THISREASON WE DECIDED TO ACTUALLY SCRAPE THE SITE AND BUILD NEWRATHER THAN RECYCLING RENOVATED BUILDINGS.IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZETHE FACT THAT RENOVATING BUILDINGS IS INHERENTLY ASUSTAINABLE DESIGN PRANE PAL AND PRACTICE, BUT IT MIGHT NOTALWAYS BE THE CORRECT SOLUTION. LOOKING AT THE SPECIFICCONDITIONS HERE IN SANTA BARBARA, LIKE I Memo BEFORE, IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WE CONCLUDED THE BEST SOLUTIONWOULD BE TO SCRAPE THE SITE AND BUILD NEW AND THAT’S LOOKING ATTHE EXISTING PLAN OVER HERE IN THE CORNER, LOOKING AT THECURRENT SITE ARRANGED AROUND A CONFIGURATION OF BUILDINGS. IF YOU LOOK AT THECONFIGURATION, YOU CAN Encounter IT DECENTRALIZES ANY KIND OF OF THECOMMUNITY BUILDING Asset WHICH THESE TYPE OF DEVELOPMENTSACTUALLY SERVE TO PROMOTE. THE ISOLATED COMMUNITY CENTER INTHE BACK CORNER OF THE SITE ACTUALLY PULLS ITS SOLE FEATURE, WHICH IS BUILDING COMMUNITY, PROVIDING CHILD DAYCARESERVICES, AWAY FROM THE CENTRAL FOCUS OF BUILDING THE CENTRALCOMMUNITY FOCUS.THE LACK OF ANY KIND OF OPENCOMMUNITY GREEN SPACE PREVENTS PUBLIC GATHERINGS AND THECREATES NOOKS AND ALLEYWAYS WHICH ARE COUNTER PRODUCTIVE TODEFENSIBLE SAFE AND SAFEGUARDED PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES. ADDITIONALLY, IT ALSO CREATESAND DARKENS INSIDES AND INTERIORS OF THE BUILDINGS ANDIT CREATES A PROBLEM FOR CARS, ACTUALLY, MANEUVERING THROUGHOUTTHE SITE, SO AGAIN, IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WEDECIDED TO SCRAPE THE SITE BOTH TO INCREASE DENSITY, IMPROVEMANEUVERABILITY OF CARS AND TO IMPROVE THE SAFETY AND SECURITYOF THE RESIDENTS LIVING IN THE FACILITY .>> SO WHEN WE CONFIGURED OURSITE, WE ACTUALLY PLACED THE FAMILY LIVING CENTER ON THATBUSY STREET CORNER TO ENCOURAGE THE COMMUNITY TO GET INVOLVEDWITH THE RESIDENTS. THIS ALSO CREATES A BUFFER FROMTHAT LOUD STREET CORNER TO THE PRIVATE, MORE RESIDENTIAL FACES. NOW, WE HAVE PARKING PROVIDED INTHE BACK, BUT OTHERWISE, WE’VE CONSOLIDATED THE PARKING TO THESOUTHWEST SIDE OF THE SITE, PROVIDING 65 SPACES TO RESIDENTSAND GUESTS. WE REALIZE THAT PROVIDING ONEPARKING SPACE PER PERSON IS UNSUSTAINABLE, SO WHAT WE’VEDONE IS PROMOTE A CAR SHARING PROGRAM TO BE INTEGRATED ANDTHIS WAY RESIDENTS CAN SHARE CARS AND FORM NEW RELATIONSHIPS. THE BUILDINGS ARE SET BACK FROMTHE STREET WITH A WIDE WALKABLE SIDEWALK AND A LAYER OF NATURALLANDSCAPING THAT CONTAINS BIOSWALES FOR WATER FILTRATIONAND CONSERVATION AND IN THE INTERIOR, WE HAVE A LARGECOURTYARD SPACE THAT ACTUALLY HAS A RUNNING AND WALKING AND ABIKING PATH AROUND THE PERIMETER. CREATING A HEALTHY COMMUNITYMEANS PROVIDING THE SPACES FOR THESE RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES. THLS ADDS A LAYER OF SAFETY TOTHE VILLAGE BECAUSE THIS OCCUPIED HALF HAS EYES ON THESTREET AND POTENTIAL SPACES. EACH UNIT HAS A FRONT OR BACKBALCONY AND THESE OCCUPIED PORCHES ENHANCE THE IDEA OFPOTENTIAL SPACE, SO PARENTS LIKE BETTY CAN HAVE THEIR KIDSPLAYING IN THIS LARGE OPEN COURTYARD WHILE THEIR FRIENDLYNEIGHBOR, JOHN, KEEPS AN EYE ON THEM.WE HAVE PLAYGROUNDS ANDCOMMUNITY GARDENS WHERE RESIDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO GROWTHEIR OWN FOOD THROUGH WORKSHOPS IN THE FAMILY LIVING CENTER, WHICH WE’LL TOUCH ON LATER. THESE WORKSHOPS CAN TEACHLIFELONG HEALTHY LIVING HABITS. NOW, GETTING TO THE DESIGN OFOUR BUILDINGS, WE TRIED TO CREATE A MODERN INTERPRETATIONOF THE FORMS FOUND IN STAND THAT BARBARA. WE HAVE THESE GABLED ROOFS, LARGE AMOUNTS OF SOLAR GRAZING AND SUN SHADING AND RAILINGSWITH STEEL AND WOOD. WE UTILIZE EVERY ASPECT OF THESITE FOR SUSTAINABILITY WITH PHOTOVOLTAIC ON THE ROOFS, NATURAL LANDSCAPING FOR WATER CONSERVATION, BIOSWALES, AND THELARGE AMOUNT OF SITE FOR GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMPS. >> I Predict TO LEAVE THE BUILDINGDESIGN CONVERSATION AND BUILDING OFF, THREE PROBLEMS ON THEEXISTING SITE WERE LACK OF DENSITY, OPEN SPACE AND PARKINGAVAILABLE. TO ADDRESS THIS, WE ADOPTED THETOWNHOUSE TYPOLOGY OF HOUSING. THIS IS A UNIVERSALLY SUCCESSFULTYPOLOGY THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY AND WHAT WE SEE HERE, THESE AREFULLY ACCESSIBLE UNIT PLANS. A TWO-LEVEL FAMILY UNIT ABOVEAND A TWO-BEDROOM FLAT BELOW. IN THIS SECTION HERE, WE HAVE–YOU CAN SEE THE UNIT, THE TWO BEDROOMS, OR THE THREE-BEDROOMUNIT RIGHT THERE AND A TWO-BEDROOM FLAT BELOW AND WEACTUALLY SUNK THIS INTO THE GROUND A HALF LEVEL.THIS DOES A FEW THINGS. IT Organizes A Breakup FROM THESTREET AND YOU CAN IMAGINE SOMEBODY WALKING BY AND NOTBEING ABLE TO LOOK DIRECTLY GOT UNIT. THIS ALSO DOUBLES THE AMOUNT OFUNITS THAT HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO THE PUBLIC STREET. EVERY UNIT WE PROVIDED ON SITEHAS A DIRECT ACCESS THROUGH THE UNIT TO THE STREET AND TO THECOURTYARD. AND WE Believe THIS ACTUALLYPROVIDES AN IDENTITY FOR THESE FAMILIES AND YOU CAN SEE THEGABLED ROOFS AND THE SINGLE-FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD, WEBELIEVE THIS IS DEFINITELY LIKE THE SWEET SPOT OF DENSITY FORTHIS CONTEXT. AND We are therefore CAN SEE DIAGRAMS UP ONTHE ACTIVE LEFT CORNER RIGHT THERE– TOP LEFT CORNER RIGHTTHERE AND THAT DEMONSTRATES HOW WE TOOK THIS LONG BAR AND BROKEIT UP WITH THE UNITS, PAIRED THE UNITS AND MIRRORS THEM TO CREATEEFFICIENCY, PLUMBING WALLS, AND WE STEPPED THEM BACK AND FORTH, ALTERNATING IN PAIRS. THIS DOES TWO THINGS. FIRST, IT Separates UP THE LONG BARAND CREATES A MORE HUMAN SCALE ALONG THE STREET. YOU CAN Envision PEOPLE BEING ABLE TOCHAT FROM THE STOOP, PEOPLE ON THE STREET WALKING.IT GIVES THAT IDENTITY LIKE IWAS SAYING OF INDIVIDUAL HOUSES IN A SINGLE-FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD. AND SECONDLY, AND MOREIMPORTANTLY, IT Provisions A LARGER DEFENSIBLE MED ACCESSIBLETO EACH UNIT. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THE KIDS INTHEIR UNITS COMING OUT AND BEING ABLE TO PLAY ON A BALCONYDIRECTLY ACCESSIBLE TO THE UNIT AND THIS ALTERNATES BACK ANDFORTH TO CREATE THAT SCALE. AND ONE OF THE Observations WASPROBLEMS WITH ACCESSIBILITY ON OUR SITE AND HOW WE ADDRESSED ITWAS ON THE EASTERN PORTION OF THE SLIDE, THE FAMILY LIVINGCENTER, WE ACTUALLY FLIPPED THE MODEL AND TOOK THE TWO-LEVELTHREE-BEDROOM UNITS AND SUNK THEM DOWN BELOW GRADE AND WESHARE THE ELEVATORS WITH THE FAMILY CENTER AND WE WERE ABLETO PROVIDE OVER 25 UNITS ON SITE TO BE FULLY ACCESSIBLE. >> THESE Measurements ATTACHED TO THEFAMILY LIVING CENTER ARE SENIOR LIVING LAB UNITS HERE.THESE CAN BE THOUGHT OF AS AMEDICAL DEVICE ITSELF TETHERED TO OUR RESEARCH LAB. THESE Components PROVIDE NONINVASIVEHEALTHCARE FOR SENIORS AND GREATLY IMPROVE THE QUALITY OFLIFE. EACH Contingent HAS FOUR MAINCOMPONENTS OF RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY. FIRST, THE GAIT ANALYSIS. IT Sets HOW YOU FALK AND DIDDETECT WHEN A SENIOR HAS FALLEN AND ALERT NECESSARY MEDICALPEOPLE. NEXT IS SLEEP SENSORS WHICH CANNOT ONLY TRACK YOUR HEALTH THROUGH YOUR SLEEP, BUT WHENSOMEONE Get OUT OF BED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND TURN ONLOW LEVEL LIGHTS, POSSIBLY PREVENTING A FALL IN THE FIRSTPLACE. THIRDLY, SMART MIRRORS, WHICHMEASURE THE YELLOW OF YOUR LENSES WHICH NATURALLY HAPPENSAS YOU AGE AND ADJUST THE AMOUNT OF BLUE LIGHT YOU RECEIVETHROUGH THE UNIT. AND FINALLY THE SMART TOILETWHICH MEASURES YOUR HYDRATION AND AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTSDIURETIC AND HEART MEDICATION.NOT ONLY CAN THE HEALTH LABBRING LIMITED HEALTHCARE TO SENIORS, THIS LEVEL OFTECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH CAN HELP ADDRESS DEVELOPMENTAL ISSUES INCHILDREN SUCH AS ADHD AND AUTISM, SO EVERYBODY IN THISCOMMUNITY GETS THE HEALTHCARE THEY DESERVE. Also, BRINGING TELE HEALTH TOSANTA BARBARA BRINGS A NEW LEVEL OF INFRASTRUCTURE BECAUSE OF THEAMOUNT OF DATA AND BANDWIDTH THAT’S REQUIRED AND IN THISDIGITAL AGE, ACCESS TO THE VAST RESOURCES OF THE INTERNET IS ABASIC HUMAN RIGHT AND WE SAW PROVIDING THAT AS A REQUIREMENTFOR BRINGING HOUSING INTO THE 21 st CENTURY. >> KATIE MENTIONED THE FAMILYLIVING CENTER IS REALLY THE NEW COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT FOCUS OFOUR SITE THERE ON THE CORNER AND THAT GROUND LEVEL IS WHERE WEHAVE A MULTI PURPOSE ROOM AND SOME COUNSELING ROOMS AND REALLYFLEXIBLE SPACES THAT ALLOW THE COMMUNITY AND RESIDENTS ON SITETO COME IN, EVERYTHING FROM A TEEN NIGHT TO A COOKING CLASS INTHE KITCHEN, EVEN IF THERE’S LEGAL COUNSELING AND JUST FAMILYMEETINGS THAT NEED TO TAKE PLACE HERE, THIS Build OFFERS THEMTHOSE RESOURCES AND THE SPACES That are necessary to, YOU KNOW, ADDRESS SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT THEY MAY HAVE TROUBLE WITHTODAY.AND ABOVE THAT, ON THE SECONDFLOOR, IS OUR RESEARCH LAB AND THAT’S WHERE ALL THE RESEARCHTHAT OUR PARTNERING INSTITUTIONS CAN COME IN AND THEY HAVE THISACCESS BASICALLY ONSITE WITH THESE ELDERLY RESIDENTS IN THESENIOR LAB UNITS. PARTNERING WITH THEM, WE’RE ABLETO BRING IN, AS RYAN MENTIONED EARLIER, INSTITUTIONAL FUNDINGAND ADDITIONAL OUTSIDE GRANTS TO FURTHER OUR, You are familiar with, FURTHERWHAT WE CAN REALLY BUILD ON AND PROVIDE FOR OUR SENIOR UNITS. >> “Were having” CREATED A ROBUSTFINANCIAL MODEL THAT COMBINES PRIVATE EQUITY WITH GOVERNMENTSUBSIDIES TO FULLY FUND MONTE RIA VILLAGE AND REINVENT IT FORTHE FUTURE.THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF FUNDINGFOR THIS DEVELOPMENT ARE LOW INCOME HOUSING TAX CREDITS. ON THE SITE VISIT, WE LEARNEDTHAT LOW INCOME HOUSING TAX CREDITS ARE SOLD AT A PREMIUM INSANTA BARBARA, CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN THE NATIONALAVERAGE, AND THIS ACTUALLY WAS CONFIRMED AT AN EXPERT PANELTHAT WE JUST ATTENDED THIS MORNING. ONE THING BEFORE I GET INTO OURDIFFERENT SOURCES OF FINANCING, THE WAY WE HAVE CHOSEN TOGRAPHICALLY REPRESENT THIS YEAR WITH THE BARS, IF YOU CAN THINKOF THESE AS BEING ABLE TO ADJUST DEPENDING ON WHAT THE SANTABARBARA HOUSING AUTHORITY ENDS UP CHOOSING TO DO AND NEEDING TODO. Will vary depending on, YOU KNOW– WEWANT TO DEFER TO THEIR EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE ANDAWARENESS OF THE COMMUNITY, AND ENABLE THEM TO USE THIS AS ATOOL, BUT ADJUST EACH FUNDING SOURCE COMMENSURATELY TO WHAT’SAVAILABLE.ANOTHER SIZEABLE PORTION OF OURFINANCING IS ENERGY PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING, AND WHAT THISENABLES US TO DO IS START OFF WITH SUSTAINABILITY FROM DAYONE. THIS PAYS FOR THE CONSTRUCTIONAND TECHNOLOGIES AND DIFFERENT Patches OF EQUIPMENT THAT WE NEEDTO MAKE THE DEVELOPMENT NET ZERO. NOW, MAJOR DISTINGUISHING FACTORFROM A FUNDING STANDPOINT AND FROM A MEDICAL AND COMMUNITYSTANDPOINT LIKE MY TEAMMATES HAVE TOUCHED ON EARLIER IS THELIVING LABS.THEY’VE ALREADY TOLD YOU ABOUTTHE MEDICAL BENEFITS AND THE PEACE OF MIND THAT IT COULDPROVIDE, BUT IT WILL Too BE A SIZEABLE AND RELIABLE FUNDINGSOURCE. THE 24/7 HEALTH MONITORING WILLENABLE US TO OBTAIN CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT VOUCHERS THROUGH THEAFFORDABLE CARE ACT AND PROVIDE AN ATTRACTIVE RESEARCHOPPORTUNITY TO UNIVERSITIES IN CALIFORNIA. WE Repute THAT– THERE’S JUSTA FEW CALIFORNIA MEDICAL SCHOOLS ON THE BOARD HERE. I DON’T Judge IT’S JUST LIMITEDTO MEDICAL SCHOOLS, BUT SINCE THESE ARE TIED TO THE SENIORUNITS, THAT WOULD BE OUR FIRST OPTION AND WE SEE UNIVERSITIESBEING ABLE TO DESIGN INTERGENERATIONAL STUDIES, LONGITUDINAL STUDIES, AND BEING ABLE TO SUBSIDIZE THEM WITHNATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH OR NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATIONGRANTS.THIS WILL ENABLE US TO BRING INRENT ABOVE THE MARKET RATE. SOMETHING ELSE THIS MORNING FROMTHE EXPERT PANEL, THE GENTLEMAN WITH THE D.C. HOUSING AUTHORITYSAID THIS BETTER THAN I’VE BEEN ABLE TO AS I’VE, YOU KNOW, BEENRUNNING THROUGH THERE OVER THE LAST WEEK OR TWO. HE SAID THAT WITHOUT Benefits, MYPOLICY DOESN’T WORK, AND THAT’S REALLY ONE OF THE BEST THINGSABOUT THE LIVING LAB IS IT ENABLES US TO ADD A LOT MOREVALUE TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO THIS AFFORDABLE HOUSINGDEVELOPMENT. NOW, I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOMEADDITIONAL COSTS IN THIS MODEL ABOVE WHAT A BASIC AFFORDABLEHOUSING DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE, AND THE APPROPRIATE WAY TO LOOKAT IT IS AS AN INVESTMENT.WE’LL PUT UP THESE COSTS ON THEFRONT END AND BE ABLE TO REAP THE BENEFITS FOR A LONG TIME. WE Pointed UP ARRIVING AT THELIVING LAB CONCEPT FOR A FINANCING SOURCE AFTERCONSIDERING A FEW OTHER SOURCES. I HAD THE CHANCE TO WORK WITHKANSAS NONPROFIT GROUP IN KANSAS CITY WITH A SIMILAR FOCUS, AHOUSING GROUP, AND IT’S A Program AT KU WHERE GRADSTUDENTS BASICALLY SERVE AS CONSULTANTS FOR NONPROFITGROUPS, AND THEY WANTED TO MOVE BEYOND HOUSING AND DO A BUSINESSINCUBATOR, AND ONE FUNDING Source THAT THEY HAD FOR IT WASA COFFEE SHOP AND, YOU KNOW, WE THOUGHT ABOUT MAYBE DOING THATOR A CORNER STORE OR SOMETHING IN LIEU OF THE LIVING LAB, BUT ISHARPENED MY PENCIL AND TRIED TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY HOW MANY CUPSOF COFFEE YOU NEED TO SELL TO MAKE UP THE FUNDING THAT WEBELIEVE WE CAN GET THROUGH GRANTS AND IT FEN SILLS OUTTO– PENCILS OUT TO 11,000 A DAY, AND I DON’T Conclude YOU CANDO THAT IN ANY MARKET, SO THAT’S ONE OF THE Rationales WE WENT WITHTHE LIVING LAB CONCEPT.A COUPLE OF COST SAVING MEASURESWE DO INCLUDE, THE OBVIOUS ONE IS THE NET ZERO CAPABILITY ANDTHAT WILL PAY OFF IN THE FORM OF, YOU KNOW, LOW OR NONEXISTENTUTILITY BILLS IN THE FUTURE.[ INAUDIBLE COMMENTS ]>> OKAY, THANK YOU. >> OKAY, PANEL. YOU MAY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY INTHE Q& A TO ADDRESS ANYTHING YOU FELT YOU LEFT OUT. THE JURY IS GOING TO HAVEQUESTIONS NOW, BUT ONE THING AS YOU’RE PROVIDING YOUR ANSWERS, PLEASE REMEMBER, IF YOU CAN, TO EMPHASIZE THE INNOVATION ASPECTSOF YOUR FROEFRL. WE’LL START– PROPOSAL. WE’LL START WITH JAMES. >> THANKS. CONGRATULATE YOU ON LOOKING ATINTEGRATING HOUSING WITH HEALTHCARE. THAT’S PROBABLY THE BIGGESTTREND IN OUR INDUSTRY RIGHT NOW, HOW TO CAPTURE HEALTHCAREDOLLARS TO USE FOR HOUSING. SO TO THAT END, WHO– THESENIOR LAB, WHO WOULD BE MONITORING THESE– >> UNITS THEMSELVES? >> THE TECHNOLOGY .>> THE UNIVERSITIES THAT WEPARTNER WITH ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE IN THAT SECOND STORY, INTHE FAMILY LIVING CENTER, AND SO SINCE THEY’RE TET THEY ARED WITHTHE UNITS– TETHERED WITH THE UNITS, THEY’RE THE ONES THAT AREABLE TO– LIKE YOU CAN IMAGINE, A SCHOOL CAN COME IN ANDRESEARCHERS WOULD SPEND A SEMESTER THERE AND THEY WOULD BEABLE TO MONITOR THESE TECHNOLOGIES THROUGH THEUNIVERSITY. >> SO YOU Visualize PARTNERING WITH AHEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION OR– FOR THE SENIOR LIVING LEVEL, FORTHE SENIOR LAB? >> CORRECT. >> AND DO YOU SEE THEMSUBSIDIZING THE UNITS IN SOME WAY? >> WITH THE MODEL– >> PARTNERING WITH THE HEALTHCARE INSTITUTION, DO YOUMEAN– >> HOSPITALS. >> LIKE A UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL ORSOMETHING? YEAH, THAT WOULD BE ONE Option .>> THE PEOPLE WITH MONEY. >> YEAH, THEY COULD SUBSIDIZEIT. WE Judge THAT– OR WE BELIEVETHAT WITH THE ABOVE-MARKET RATE RENTS, AS LONG AS THEY’RE PAYINGTHEIR BILLS ON TIME, WE DON’T REALLY CARE HOW THEY SUBSIDIZEIT, BUT, YOU KNOW, One other thing THAT WE COULD POTENTIALLY DO ISA DIFFERENT HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION. YOU KNOW, SOMEBODY HAD –A LIKEA NEW WALKER DESIGN AND THEY WANTED TO TEST THAT OUT, THEYCOULD PROVIDE SUBSIDIES AND HAVE A PLACE TO TAKE IT FROMPROTOTYPE AND BEING ABLE TO USE IT AND SPREAD THE BENEFITS OFIT .>> OKAY, Thanks for coming. >> I ALSO HAD A QUESTION ABOUTTHE LIVING LAB. IT’S A REALLY INTERESTINGCONCEPT, AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD EXPLAIN A LITTLE MOREYOUR THINKING ABOUT WHO LIVES THERE. ARE THESE PUBLIC HOUSINGRESIDENTS WHO LIVE THERE? ARE THESE– ARE THE UNITS OPENTO ANYONE? HOW WOULD THAT WORK? >> THE Parts THEMSELVES, YES, THE RESIDENTS WOULD BE ELDERLY OR AGING CITIZENS THAT MAY NOTNECESSARILY NEED ALL THESE TECHNOLOGIES AT THE TIME, SO ONETHING WE DID UNDERSTAND WAS THAT, You are familiar with, A Batch OF PEOPLEARE SENSITIVE TO WHAT’S BEING MONITORED AND, You are familiar with, WHATPEOPLE ARE RECORDING OF THEM, AND SO WE ALSO WANTED TO BESENSITIVE TO THAT.AND SO THESE UNITS ACTUALLY AREKIND OF A PLUG AND PLAY SYSTEM WHERE THESE TECHNOLOGIES SHOULDBE– THEY COULD BE ADDED ON, BASICALLY, AS YOU CONTINUE TOEXPAND HEALTH ISSUES AS YOU AGE. AND AS FAR AS THE DEMOGRAPHIC, WE ARE STILL STRUCTURING IT AS A LOW INCOME– AS AFFORDABLEUNITS. SO THE REVENUES AND THE GRANTSGENERATED FROM THE INSTITUTIONS THAT PARTNER, SINCE THESE UNITSCAN, AS KATIE MENTIONED, BE ALMOST CONSIDERED MEDICALTECHNOLOGIES, THEY’RE ABLE TO LEVERAGE THE NATIONAL HEALTH–OR NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH GRANTS AND OTHER, YOU KNOW, REALLY BIG– THESE AREMILLION-DOLLAR GRANTS THATCAN PROVIDE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGIES AND DIFFERENTSYSTEMS. >> THANK YOU. >> THE JURY IS VERY INTERESTEDHOW YOU ARRIVE AT THE NUMBER OF UNITS FOR YOUR DEVELOPMENT. YOU CAME IN AT 50. OBVIOUSLY SANTA BARBARA HASTREMENDOUS HOUSING NEEDS. YOU COULD HAVE DONE MORE, YOUCOULD HAVE DONE LESS, WHAT WAS THE THINKING? >> THAT’S A REALLY GOODQUESTION. I Review RYAN WOULD BE HAPPY TOSPEAK ABOUT THE BALANCE OF DENSITY. >> LIKE I MENTIONED IN MYPRESENTATION EARLIER, WE ACTUALLY CONSIDERED DOING ATYPICALLY DOUBLE-LOADED CORRIDOR WITH AN ELEVATOR, VERY DENSESCHEME, BUT FOR FAMILY HOUSING, IT WAS SO NECESSARY TO PROVIDEONE IDENTITY ON THE STREET, HAVING THE FAMILIES ACTUALLYHAVE THAT HOUSE FRONT, BUT Also THE OPEN SPACE IS SO CRITICALWITH FAMILY HOUSING, SO YOU CAN SEE, I Foresee WE PROVIDE THECERTAIN NUMBER OR LIKE THE– I GUESS PRETTY CLOSE TO THE RIGHTNUMBER OF 50, THAT Also Accepts THAT LARGE OPEN COURTYARD, THATUNIFIED OPEN SPACE THAT’S SHARED AND ALSO LIKE THAT SMALLERPUBLIC SPACE, WHICH HAS A LOT OF UNITS FACING, SO THESE NUMBERSCOULD BE MOVED.WE BELIEVE– WE COULD ACTUALLYDONE MORE UNITS ON THE NORTH SIDE, BUT WE FELT LIKE 50 WAS AGOOD NUMBER. >> Thanks for coming FOR YOUR GREATPRESENTATION. A COUPLE QUESTIONS. ONE IS ARE ANY OF THE FAMILYUNITS ACCESSIBLE? >> YES. WE DO HAVE ACCESSIBLE FAMILYUNITS IN THAT SAME BLOCK ON THE NORTH– ON THE NORTH– OR MORETHE EAST SIDE OF THE SITE. >> AS PART OF THE LIVING LAB? >> CORRECT, THEY ARE ATTACHED INWITH THOSE PROTOTYPE UNITS, BUT AGAIN, THOSE TECHNOLOGIES CAN BEPLUG AND PLAYED AS NEEDED, SO IF A FAMILY MOVES IN THERE AND THEYNEED THAT ACCESSIBILITY, BUT NOT Undoubtedly THE MONITORINGTECHNOLOGIES, THEY DON’T HAVE TO BE Enforced TO TAKE PART IN THATPROGRAM .>> OKAY. AND SO YOU HAVE– DID YOU SAYYOU HAVE 65 Parking zone? >> IN THE MAIN PARKING SECTION, CORRECT. >> AND THAT’S ALL FOR THEHOUSING. >> FOR THE Citizens AND THEGUESTS, YES. >> OKAY. I Remember THAT’S ALL MY QUESTIONS, THANKS. >> I WAS EXTREMELY IMPRESSEDWITH HOW FAMILY-CENTERED AND IT SEEMS LIKE YOU REALLY TALKED TOA LOT OF PEOPLE TO Better understand their LIFESTYLES. THE SENIOR LIVING LAB, WHAT IQUESTION IS, IS THERE A STIGMA ASSOCIATED WITH THAT THAT I’MGOING TO BE LIVING IN A LAB ENVIRONMENT AS OPPOSED TO JUST APLACE TO LIVE? YOU KNOW, IN THAT PIECE OF IT.AND THEN THE OTHER THING WAS, BECAUSE IT’S THE FAMILY CENTERON THE CORNER, WHICH WAS EXTREMELY SMART, UTILIZING ITFOR THE NOISE, BUT IT WAS THE SENIOR UNITS NEXT TO THE FAMILYCENTER, NOT ANY OF THE FAMILY UNITS. SO WHATEVER QUESTIONS ARE INTHERE. >> YOU KNOW, THAT’S A REALLYGOOD POINT AND WHEN WE WERE CONSIDERING OUR LAYOUT, AGAIN, YOU KNOW, THE BIGGEST CONSIDERATION FOR US WAS HOWTHESE FAMILIES WOULD BE ABLE TO INTERACT BOTH WITHIN THERESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY ON THE PROPERTY AS WELL AS THESURROUNDING AREA.SO YOU KNOW, JUST INHERENTLY, THOSE SENIOR UNITS ARE PRETTY MUCH NEEDED TO BE ATTACHED TOTHAT LIVING LAB, JUST FOR THE RESEARCH INSTITUTION TO BE ABLETO WORK WITH AND COMMUNICATE WITH THOSE RESIDENTS DIRECTLYAND NOT HAVE TOO MUCH, YOU KNOW, OTHER IMPACT ON THE OTHER UNITS. BUT AS FAR AS ENGAGING WITHOTHER FAMILIES IN THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND WHAT WE REALLY FOUNDIS THAT THIS IS– THIS ATTRACT AND VERY LARGE– THE VERY LARGEPOPULATION OF AGING, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE IN THE UNITED Regime FINDTHEMSELVES ISOLATED IN OTHER TYPES OF LIVING SITUATIONS, SOWHETHER THAT’S ASSISTED LIVING OR SENIOR HOMES, AND WHAT WE’VEPROVIDED WITHIN THIS FAMILY LIVING CENTER IS THE OPPORTUNITYFOR THEM TO GET INTEGRATED WITH THE COMMUNITY AS WELL, AND SOFAMILIES LIVING ONSITE THAT HAVE ACCESS TO THE LIVING CENTER AREKIND OF BRIDGED BY THIS NEW INTERGENERATIONAL CONCEPT THATWE’VE BROUGHT USING THE FAMILY LIVING CENTER KIND OF AS A HOMEBASE .>> AND JUST TO SPEAK TO THEFAMILY FOCUS OF THE LIVING LAB, YOU KNOW, WE ALL KNOW THATFAMILY INVOLVEMENT IN A CHILD’S LIFE IS CRUCIAL, AND THEOPPORTUNITY TO BE EDIFIED AND ENCOURAGED NOT ONLY BY PARENTS, BUT GRANDPARENTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS, You are familiar with, THE ABILITYFOR THESE AGING PEOPLE TO STAY IN THE COMMUNITY AND CHOOSE ANELECTIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT COULD SAVE THEM FROM A FALL OR JUSTHELP MONITOR THEIR ONGOING CHRONIC HEALTH NEEDS WILL ENABLEUS TO DO THAT AND WHAT REALLY SEPTEMBER OUR DEVELOPMENTAPART– SETS OUR DEVELOPMENT APART FROM A COMMUNITYSTANDPOINT .>> JUST A STIGMA. >> I GUESS WHAT WE’RE THINKINGIS THIS IS NOT THE ONLY SOLUTION TO INTERGENERATIONAL HOUSING. THIS IS JUST ONE OPTION, AND SOWE RECOGNIZE THAT NOT ALL SENIORS ARE GOING TO WANT TO BEAROUND THIS MONITORING TECHNOLOGY OR EVEN AROUND SMALLCHILDREN FOR THAT MATTER, BUT SEEING HOW MUCH THE AGINGPOPULATION IS GROWING, I Visualize THIS HAS TO BE AN OPTION TOACCOMMODATE THAT AND I THINK THERE ARE SENIORS OUT THERE THATCARE ENOUGH ABOUT THEIR HEALTH AND THEIR FAMILIES CARE ENOUGHABOUT THEIR HEALTH THAT THEY WOULD Opt IN FOR THIS AND IT’SREALLY NONINVASIVE TECHNOLOGY .>> AND WE HAVE SPOKEN TO A FEWGERONTOLOGYISES FROM THE UNIVERSITY, AND I HAVE PERSONALRELATIONSHIPS WITH FAMILY MEMBERS IN THAT DEMOGRAPHICTHAT, WHEN I’VE SPOKEN TO THEM ABOUT THESE TECHNOLOGIES ANDTHESE SYSTEMS, I Symbolize, THEIR EYES LIGHT UP. IT’S LIKE, WOW, THAT CAN HAPPEN? LIKE I– YOU KNOW, YOU GUYSWOULD BE ABLE TO KNOW THE MINUTE THAT I FELL OVER RATHER THANGETTING THE PHONE CALL FROM THE HOSPITAL AN HOUR LATER? SO IT’S JUST– THESE KIND OF, You are familiar with, DISCUSSIONS HAVE REALLY OPENED PEOPLE UP TO THISTYPE OF TECHNOLOGY AS WELL .>> AND, You are familiar with, MOST RADICALINNOVATIONS ARE A LITTLE UNSETTLING INITIALLY, BUT ONETHING THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT AS WE WERE, You are familiar with, LOOKING ATINTERGENERATIONAL HOUSING AS A SOLUTION WAS, YOU KNOW, WHEN OURGRANDPARENTS WERE OUR AGE IN THEIR EARLY 20 s, THEY HADGRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AT THE SAME AGE AS US. IF THEY WENT TO COLLEGE, THEYGRADUATED AT THE SAME AGE, BUT LIFE EXPECTANCY WASTHREE-QUARTERS OF WHAT IT IS NOW, AND, You are familiar with, IF YOUCOMBINE THAT WITH THE GROWING AGING POPULATION, WHAT WE’VEINCLUDED AS IMPROVEMENTS TODAY WILL LIKELY BECOME NECESSITIESTOMORROW. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOURPRESENTATION. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.[ APPLAUSE ]>> – good evening, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. JURORS AND THE HUD COMMUNITY. ON BEHALF OF THE HARVARDUNIVERSITY TEAM, I’D LIKE TO Thanks for coming FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TOPRESENT TODAY. WE Completely Experienced THISCOMPETITION.OUR TEAM REPRESENTS THREEDIFFERENT DISCIPLINES. MY NAME IS MIRIAM KELLER, I’M APUBLIC POLICY STUDENT. MY TEAMMATES ARE JUSTIN IN THEARCHITECTURAL PROGRAM AND ALLIE STEIN. WE’RE EXCITED TO SHARE OURVISION TODAY. OUR PROPOSAL BEGINS WITH THEBELIEF THAT CREATING A HOME IS MORE THAN JUST BUILDING A GREATLOUSE. A HOME CONNECTS INDIVIDUALS TOCOMMUNITY, A HOME SUPPORTS HEALTH AND WELL BEING, A HOMERESPECTS THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENT, AND A HOME–NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND A HOME PROVIDES THE FOUNDATION FORPURSUE NEW OPPORTUNITIES. MONTE RIA VILLAGE PRESENTS ASPECIAL OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE A REAL HOME FOR MANY SANTA BARBARARESIDENTS WHO NEED ONE. THE LOCATION, THE CURRENT OWNERIN THE SAB STA BARBARA HOUSING AUTHORITY AND THE EXISTINGINFRASTRUCTURE SETS A PERFECT FOUNDATION FOR A TRANSFORMATIVEREDEVELOPMENT. OUR VISION FOR THIS OPPORTUNITYIS BUILD ON THREE INTERCONNECTED PRINCIPLES. FIRST, WE BUILT ON EXISTINGPROGRAMS AND COMMUNITY ASSETS TO BUILD PARTNERSHIPS THAT EMPOWERRESIDENTS AT ALL STAGES OF LIFE. SECOND, WE CREATE SPACES, LANDSCAPES AND SYSTEMS THAT RESPECT AND CELEBRITIES THEENVIRONMENT, AND SUPPORT THE PROJECT’S SOCIAL AND FINANCIALASPIRATIONS, AND THIRD, WE DEVELOP A FINANCING PLAN THATMAXIMIZING Resource FOR RESIDENT Assistance AND FOR HIGHQUALITY NEW CONSTRUCTION.YOU’LL SEE THESE KEY PRINCIPLESHIGHLIGHTED ON EACH SLIDE. OUR PLAN ALSO PROVIDES FOR THEBROADER CONTEXT OF HOUSING AND HOUSING AFFORDABILITY IN THECOMMUNITY OF SANTA BARBARA. THE CITY HAS EXPERIENCE ADDEXTREMELY LOW VACANCY RATE, HOVERING AROUND ONE PERCENT THELAST THREE YEARS, AND IN PARALLEL, THE PUBLIC HOUSINGWAIT HAS GROWN BY 60% AND THE GREATEST NEED IS FAMILIES WITHCHILDREN AND FOR SENIORS. ANOTHER IMPORTANT POINT OFCONTEXT IS THAT SANTA BARBARA CITY COLLEGE IS DIRECTLY ACROSSTHE STREET FROM OUR SITE. AND SO THERE’S A CONSTANCE FLUXOF STUDENTS NEARBY WALKING TO CLASS OR INTO DOWNTOWN. HOWEVER, DESPITE ACCOMMODATINGNEARLY 20,000 STUDENTS, THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BUILD STUDENTHOUSING AND SO THIS IS DRASTICALLY TIGHTENED THE RENTALMARKET IN SANTA BARBARA AND DRIVEN DOWN THE AVAILABILITY OFAFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR ALL GROUPS. IN LIGHT OF THIS BROADERCONTEXT, OUR PLAN INCREASES THE TOTAL NUMBER OF FAMILY UNITS ONTHE SITE, AND ALSO ADDING NEW HOMES FOR ELDERLY RESIDENTS ANDFOR STUDENTS.THIS BENEFITS FAMILIES WHOALREADY LIVE IN MONTE RIA VILLAGE AND HENCE MEET THEGROWING– HELPS MEET THE GROWING ZEE PLANNED FORAFFORDABLE ELDERLY HOMES AND STUDENT HOUSING IN SANTABARBARA. WITH THIS IN MIND, INTERGENERATIONAL COMMUNITY SUPPORT IS AT THE CENTER OFMONTE RIA VILLAGE. HERE YOU SEE AN INVENTORY OF ALLTHE SPACES INCLUDED IN OUR PLAN. WE INCREASE THE NUMBER OF DEEPLYSUBSIDIZED HOMES FOR FAMILIES FROM THE EXISTING 28 UNITS TO34. WE ADD 18 AFFORDABLE HOMES FORELDERLY RESIDENTS, AND WE SUBDIVIDE A PART OF THE SITE TODEVELOP 19 STUDENT HOUSING UNITS. WE Too EXPAND THE OPPORTUNITYCENTER TO PURPOSEFULLY BRING TOGETHER PEOPLE OF THESEDIFFERENT GENERATIONS TO ENGAGE WITH ONE ANOTHER. MUCH MORE ON THIS LATER.IN TOTAL, OUR CONCEPT MORE THANDOUBLES THE NUMBER OF UNITS CURRENTLY ON THE SITE ANDINCLUDES MORE QUALITY OPEN SPACE TO ACCOMMODATE THE WIDER RANGEOF USERS AND ACTIVITIES. >> YOU CAN Too Realise ON THE SLIDETHAT THERE’S A THOUGHTFUL APPROACH TO THE LOCATION OF EACHOF THE HOUSING TYPES. FAMILY UNITS ARE CLOSEST TO THEPARKING AREA TO FACILITATE TRIPS TO AND FROM SCHOOL AND OTHERFAMILY NEEDS. Gangs FOR ELDERLY RESIDENTS AREWITHIN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO SERVICES OFFERED BY THEOPPORTUNITY CENTER, AND ALL WILL HAVE ACCESS TO AN ELEVATOR. FINALLY, STUDENTIONSES ARELOCATED AT THE CORNER OF THE SITE DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREETFROM THE FAST WAY TO SANTA BARBARA COMMUNITY COLLEGE. THE SPACE RUN BY THE COLLEGESTUDENT ROOMING YOU CAN IMAGINE FRISBEE GAMES AND LONGCONVERSATIONS IN THE SUN AND AREAS SURROUNDED BY FAMILIES, THERE WILL BE PLAYGROUNDS AND BARBEQUES AND ALL THOSE SITE’SCURRENT LAYOUT HAS SOME OPEN SPACE, WE SAW THAT THEY WEREINTERRUPTED BY A WINDING ROADWAYS AND THIS IS A SOURCE OFFRUSTRATION FOR A Lot OF Residents, CREATING A CHRONICSAFETY HAZARD FOR KIDS PLAYING OUTSIDE.THIS SITE REORGANIZATION IS AKEY REASON FOR PURSUING NEW CONSTRUCTION RATHER THAN RELAB. YES, PARKING PROBLEM EVERYWHEREIS ALSO A PROBLEM AT MONTE RIA VILLAGE. OUR SIMPLIFIED STRATEGY CREATEAND ONE-WAY ROAD INDICATED IN YELLOW THAT MOVES ALONG THEPERIMETER OF THE SITE. 77 PARKING SPACES LOCATED ALONGTHIS ROAD INCLUDES SPACES FOR RESIDENTS, RESERVED SPOTS FORSTAFF, CAR SHARE SPOTS, BIKE RACKS ALSO ARRAYED AROUND THESITE. THE CAR SHARE AND THE BIKESENCOURAGE THE USE OF BOTH SHARED AND ACTIVE FORMS OFTRANSPORTATION, WHILE A NEW SHUTTLE WILL SUPPLEMENT THEEXISTING SERVICE.THE REORGANIZATION OF THE SIGHTINCLUDES THE ACQUISITION AND RECONFIGURATION OF THE NEARBYCOMMUNITY GARDEN WHICH IS CURRENTLY OWNED BY THE CITY ANDOPERATED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION. THIS ACTUALLY OPENS UP NEWOPPORTUNITIES TO ENHANCE THE GARDEN AS A COMMUNITY ASSET BYINTEGRATING IT INTO THE DESIGN. OUR PLAN EXPANDS THE AVAILABLEGARDEN BEDS, ADDS STORAGE AREA FOR GARDENING STOOLS ANDCONNECTS THE– TOOLS AND CONNECTS THE GARDEN TO THEOPPORTUNITY CENTER. OMAR WILL EXPAND ON OUR VISIONOF THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND HOW IT SERVES ALL THE RESIDENTS OFMONTE RIA VILLAGE. >> THE OPPORTUNITY CENTER IS ATTHE HEART OF MONTE RIA VILLAGE. THIS IS WHERE THE ACTIONHAPPENS. TODAY, THE CENTER CATERS ITSSERVICES TO CHILDREN, TO AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES, AND SOIT’S USED ONLY PART OF THE DAY. AS A DIAGRAM AT THE BOTTOM OFTHE SLIDE SHOWS, THE NEW EXPANDED CENTER WILL BE ACTIVEAT ALL TIMES OF THE DAY, AND ACCOMMODATES PROGRAMS ANDSERVICES NOT ONLY FOR CHILDREN, BUT Too FOR ELDERLY Inhabitant, PARENTS, AND COLLEGE STUDENTS.SO WHAT IS THE TYPICAL DAY LIKE? IN THE MORNING, SENIOR GATHERSOUTSIDE THE CENTER FOR A MORNING TAI CHI SESSION AND THEY HEADINTO THE CENTER WHERE THEY CAN GET THEIR VITALS CHECK BIT AVISITING NURSE STATION. RIGHT OUTSIDE IN THE MULTIPURPOSE ROOM, “MEALS ON WHEELS” IS SETTING UP TO DISTRIBUTELUNCH TO THE RESIDENTS. THEY FINISH THEIR HEALTH CHECKSAND JOIN THEIR FRIEND UPON LUNCH AND TO CHAT ABOUT THEIR PLANSFOR THE REST OF THE DAY. BY NOW, IT’S ABOUT 2:00 P.M ., Teenagers ARE COMING BACK HOME AND CITY COLLEGE STUDENTS ARERETURNING BACK TO THEIR HOUSE TO HELP STUDENTS WITH THEIRHOMEWORK AND TUTOR THEM AT EITHER A COMPUTER INSIDE THEOPPORTUNITY CENTER OR RIGHT OUTSIDE AT A TABLE IN THE SUNNYCOWER YARD.A COUPLE HOURS LATER, THE KIDSGET A BREAK FROM THEIR STUDIES ZO GET MOVING WITH “EVERYBODYDANCE NOW, ” AN EXISTING PROGRAM THAT WILL CONTINUE TO BEOFFERED, FOR YOU WITH A BIGGER FACE THAT CAN ACCOMMODATE MOREKIDS AND MORE DANCING. MEANWHILE, SENIOR RESIDENTSGARDEN OUTSIDE WHERE THEY ARE SOON JOINED BY CHILDREN ANDOTHER COMMUNITY RESIDENTS. THE OLDER RESIDENTS ANDOPPORTUNITY STAFF TEACH KIDS HOW TO CARE FOR PLANTS FROM SEED TOHARVEST AND BACK AGAIN.PARENTS COMING HOME FROM WORKCAN ATTEND FINANCIAL LITERACY, GED, OR OTHER CLASSES WHILE THECHILDREN GATHER OUTSIDE. WHOOING LONG DAY AT THEOPPORTUNITY CENTER. THROUGH THESE INTERGENERATIONALPROGRAMS, PEOPLE OF ALL AGES WILL SHARE THEIR TALENTS ANDRESOURCES, SUPPORTING EACH OTHER THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS THATBENEFIT BOTH INDIVIDUALS AND THE COMMUNITY. EMERGING PRECEDENCE TOINTERGENERATIONAL HOUSING AROUND THE COUNTRY AND ACROSS THE WORLDSHOW THAT SHARED EXPERIENCES ACROSS GENERATIONS CREATEPOSITIVE HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH OUTCOMES TO ALLPARTICIPANTS. HOW DO WE MAKE THIS POSSIBLE? HOW DOES IT COME TOGETHER? BESIDE– THE SITES PROXIMITY TODOWNTOWN AND LOCATION ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE COMMUNITYCOLLEGE PRESENTS EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES THAT PRESENTCOMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT Service AND BRING THESE COMMUNITY SPACESTO LIFE.DURING OUR VISIT, WE LEARNEDTHAT SENIORS AT HOME HAD BEEN A HUGE SUCCESS AT OTHER SITES WITHELDERLY RESIDENTS. THIS Platform Stipulates SENIORRESIDENTS WITH VISITING DOCTORS AND NURSES FREE OF CHARGE. WE PROPOSE EXTENDING THESEOPPORTUNITIES TO RESIDENTS AT MONTE RIA VILLAGE. WE ALSO LEARNED THAT THE HOUSINGAUTHORITY IS CURRENTLY WORKING WITH A HEALTH ORGANIZATION TODEVELOP A MIRROR PROGRAM FOR FAMILIES. MONTE RIA VILLAGE IS THE IDEALPLACE FOR THIS PILOT PROGRAM AS IT INCLUDES A CLINICAL ROOM INTHE OPPORTUNITY CENTER. WE IMAGINE A NEW FINANCIALLITERACY PARTNERSHIP WITH UNITED WAY OF SANTA BARBARA, WHICH ISLOCATED JUST DOWN THE STREET ON EAST MONTE SEEN NO STREET. UNITED WAY ALREADY OFFERSSEVERAL PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT FAMILIES WITH FINANCIAL PLANNINGAND EMPOWERMENT, INCLUDING DEBT REDUCTION, COLLEGE AND CAREERSAVINGS PLANS, AND Retirement savings. WE PROPOSE TO TAP INTO THISLOCAL EXPERTISE AND THAT THE UNITED WAY OPERATE ASELF-SUFFICIENCY PROGRAM ONSITE. WE OUTLINE STEPS TO ACHIEVETHESE GOALS WITH SUPPORT FROM A COORDINATOR THAT IS AVAILABLE TOBOTH TEACH CLASSES AND PROVIDE ONE-ON-ONE COUNSELING.WE THINK THE CHANCE TO PARTNERWITH SANTA BARBARA CITY COLLEGE IS ONE THAT CANNOT BE MISSED. OUR PLAN ESTABLISHES AND Store APOSITION FOR AN ONSITE EXTENDED OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM AND SERVICESSTAFF PERSON TO HELP PARENTS AND STUDENTS FIND AND NAVIGATERESOURCES AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT FINANCIALLY DISADVANTAGED ANDEDUCATIONALLY UNDERPREPARED STUDENTS. ESTABLISHING THIS POSITION WILLCREATE NEW PATHWAYS TO SANTA BARBARA CITY COLLEGE TORESIDENTS OF MONTE RIA VILLAGE.THIS PROVIDES MORE OPPORTUNITIESFOR ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN STUDENTS AND FAMILIES. FINALLY, THE REDEVELOPMENTSUSTAINABILITY FEATURES PROVIDE ANOTHER OPTION FOR EXCITINGLEARNING AND COMMUNITY BUILDING. THE OPPORTUNITY CENTER WILL HOSTTHE HOUSING AUTHORITY’S STUDENT INTERN WHO WILL BE RESPONSIBLEFOR EDUCATING AND MOTIVATING RESIDENTS TO MINIMIZE THEIRCARBON FOOT PRINT. THIS WILL ORGANIZE CONCEPTSBETWEEN RESIDENTS, OFFERING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOCUSED ONWATER USE REDUCTION AND HELP RESIDENTS UNDERSTAND HOW TO MAKEOPTIMAL USE OF ALL THE SUSTAINABILITY FEATURES THATWILL DECREASE THEIR COSTS. JUSTIN WILL NOW WALK THROUGH HOWTHE DESIGN MEETS THE HIGH ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS WEENVISION FOR THE PROJECT. >> THROUGH A COMBINATION OF BOTHPASSIVE AND INACTIVE STRATEGIES, THE SITE CAN POTENTIALLY ACHIEVEA NET ZERO OR CLOSE TO NET ZERO GOAL. MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE STRATEGIESARE FULLY INTEGRATED WITH OUR VISION FOR COMMUNITY PROGRAM ANDSPACE. AS WELL AS THE FINANCIALSUSTAINABILITY OF THE PROJECT. FIRST, PASSIVE STRATEGIES. THE SIMPLE ORIENTATION ANDMATCHING OF THE BUILDING GOES ALONG WAY TOWARDS OFFSETS ENERGYNEEDS, ESPECIALLY SINCE SANTA BARBARA’S CLIMATE IS RELATIVELYMODERATE AND REQUIRES SOME HEATING IN WINTER MONTHS.EVERY UNIT IS EQUIPPED WITH ASOLAR SPACE AND THIS SPACE IS ALSO ON THE OUTSIDE AND ALLOWSFOR THE WINTER SUN TO PENETRATE THROUGH AND WARM A THERMAL MASSOF EXPOSED CONCRETE THAT IS ALSO BEAUTIFUL AND EASY TO MAINTAIN. THIS ESSENTIALLY REDUCES THEACTIVE HEATING LOAD DURING THE WINTER WHILE IN THE SUMMERMONTHS, THE SUNROOMS ARE PROTECTED FROM OVERHEATING BYFIXED AND OPERABLE OVERHANGS, DEPENDING ON THE UNITS. THE UNITS ALSO SPAN THE DEPTH OFTHE BUILDING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CROSS VENTILATION FOR COOLINGNEEDS.THESE PASSIVE FEATURES SERVE ADUAL PURPOSE BY BOTH ADVANCING ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS, CREATING ACOMFORTABLE OUTDOORS FACE FOR RESIDENTS. THE SUNROOMS SERVE AS A PRIMARYOUTDOORS SPACE AND A BALCONY NEXT TO THE KITCHEN OVERLOOKSSHARED SPACES. SEVERAL ACTIVE SYSTEMSCOMPLEMENT THE PASSIVE STRATEGIES. FIRST, PHOTOVOLTAIC PACKAGESOFFSET MUCH OF THE ELECTRICAL ENERGY USED. THEY HAVE THE POTENTIAL TOOFFSET USE WITH AN ESTIMATED 250,000 KILOWATT HOURS PER YEAR. THIS IS EQUIVALENT TO TAKING 37 Vehicles OFF THE ROAD FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR.THE POTENTIAL USE OF THE ENTIREROOF SPACE CAN EVEN PRODUCE APPROXIMATELY 25% IN EXCESS OFTHE ESTIMATED DEMAND OF THE DEVELOPMENT. SECOND, A SOLAR THERMAL ARRAYCAN HEAT WATER FOR USE IN COOKING AND SHOWERS, REDUCINGTHE NEED FOR CONVENTIONAL HOT WATER SYSTEMS. THIS IS DIRECTLILY BELIEVE THEPV PACKAGE. THESE LAYERED SYSTEMS UTILIZETHE FULL ENERGY OF THE SUN FOR DEMAND FOR ENERGY GENERATED FROMTHE GRID. THIRD, A GRAY WATER STORAGESYSTEM REDUCES WATER FOR DOMESTIC USE, RAINWATERCOLLECTED THROUGH THE ROOF AND THE LANDSCAPE DESIGN. THESE WATER SYSTEMS PLAY A VERYIMPORTANT ROLE IN DELIVERING WATER, WHICH IS A PRECIOUSRESOURCE IN THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA REGION. FINALLY A LOCAL PLANNING PALATEREDUCES THE LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE WITH NATIVE SPECIESTHAT ARE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND DROUGHT RESISTANT. ARCHITECTURALLY, TIMBER FRAMECONSTRUCTION AND STUCCO EXTERIOR DRAWS BOTH ON THE LOCALVERNACULAR AND ALLOWS THE PROJECT TO UTILIZE LOCALMATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS.THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH THEARCHITECTURAL CHARACTER OF SANTA BARBARA. WE Conceive THIS STANDARDIZE OFENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN WILL ADD REAL VALUE TO RESIDENTS’ LIFE, THE PROJECT’S VIABILITY AND ALSO SET A Workbench MARK FOR SUSTAINABLEDESIGN IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD. WHILE AN IMPORTANT FACET OF THEPROJECT IN THEIR OWN RIGHT, THESE SUSTAINABLE STRATEGIESALSO PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE IN The funding OF THE PROJECT. ALLIE WILL DESCRIBE THIS FURTHERIN DETAIL. >> THE FINANCING PLAN AT MONTERIA VILLAGE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF SITE-SPECIFIC OPPORTUNITIES TOENSURE THAT THE INNOVATIVE COMBINATION OF SUSTAINABILITYFEATURES AND RESIDENT Work ARE SUSTAINED FOR THE LONG TERM. THREE PRIMARY FINANCINGINNOVATIONS HIGHLIGHTED HERE ON THE SLIDE SHOW THE UP FRONT ANDOPERATING DEPTH TO TURN OUR AMBITIOUS VISION FROM CONCEPT TOVIABLE REALITY. FIRST, WE PROPOSE SUBDIVIDINGPART OF THE SITE TO GROUND LEASE TO A STUDENT HOUSING DEVELOPER. SECOND, WE LEVERAGE UTILITYSAVINGS MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH SUSTAINABLE DESIGN THAT CAN BERUN BACK INTO THE DEAL AND THEREBY INTERNALIZING ANEXTERNAL COST.THIRD, USE THE ALREADY HIGHLYINNOVATIVE STRONG FAMILY FUND TO TIE SOCIAL OUTCOMES FROM ANINVIGORATED OPPORTUNITY CENTER TO EXTRA CASH CREDIT EQUITY. THIS CAPITAL SOURCE COMES OUT TO 25% OF THERESIDUAL LAND VALUE OR ALMOST$ 1MILLION. THE REMAINING RESIDUAL LAND VALUE IS STRUCTUREDAS A YEARLY PAYMENT TO THE SITE TO THE HOUSING AUTHORITY OVER 49 YEARS. THE STUDENT HOUSING DEVELOPER WOULD ALSO CONTRIBUTEPARTICIPATION RENT IN THE FORM OF 2% OF REVENUE. THIS TOTAL YEARLY PAYMENT, INCLUDING THE GROUNDLEASE, COMES UP TO AROUND $ 80,000 PER YEAR AND INCREASES AS RENTS GROW. THIS Fund WOULD Croak Directly TO RESIDENT SERVICESAT MONTE REA VILLAGE. THE PREDICTABLE STUDY AND ONGOING FEATUREOF THE GROUND LEASE PAYMENTS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT THE MISSION OF THE SATELLITEAS WE’VE IMAGINED IT HERE. AN ADDED BENEFIT OF THE GROUPS LEASE FROMTHE CITY’S PERSPECTIVE IS THAT THE MARKET RATE DEVELOPER WILL NOW HAVE AN OBLIGATIONTO PAY REAL ESTATE TAXES ON THIS LAND.THE STUDENT UNITS WILL BE ON THE CITY’S TAXROLL WHICH WILL HELP SUSTAIN THE COMMUNITY IN WHICH MONTE REA EXISTS LOWER THE LONGTERM. FINANCING IS A DIRECT Reaction OF DESIGN STRATEGIES. IT’S TO DESIGNED TO MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY. UP FRONT COSTS ARE SUBSTANTIAL BUT THE PAYOFFHAPPENS OVER THE LONGTERM. TO LEVERAGE THIS, THE FINANCING PLAN ASSUMESTHE CONSERVATIVE 60% DECREASE IN UTILITY ALLOWANCES. WITH SMALLER UTILITY ALLOWANCES, THE INCOMEEXTREME AVAILABLE TO THE SITE IS GREATER.OUR FINANCING PLAN TAKES THIS FUTURE INCOMESTREAM AND REINVESTS IT BACK INTO THE SITE. UTILITIES ACCOUNT FOR ALMOST 15% OF HUD’SBUDGET. Observe Methods TO DIMINISH THIS ALLOWANCE DEMONSTRATESSAVINGS FOR THE HOUSING AUTHORITY AS WELL AS FOR HUD. WE Also WANTED TO FIND WAYS TO MINIMIZE OURASK OF THE STATE AND MAXIMIZE THE POTENTIAL OF MONTE REA VILLAGE IN THE PRIME MARKETS. ONE WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS IS USING 9% LOWINCOMEHOUSING TAX CREDITS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE STRONG FAMILIES FUND. THIS IS A PAY FOR PERFORMANCE MODEL THAT RECOGNIZESTHAT HOUSING STABILITY COMBINED WITH RESIDENT Work HAS TRULY BENEFITED SOCIAL OUTCOMES. THROUGH THIS FUND, THE DEVELOPMENT EARNS ANNUALFUNDS FOR SOCIAL SERVICES COORDINATION AS WELL AS FAIR TAX CREDIT PRICING.IT’S THE PERFECT PLACE TO COORDINATE RESIDENTSERVICES AND MEASURE THEIR SUCCESSION AS REQUIRED BY THE STRONG FAMILIES FUND. THE PARTNERSHIPS OMAR EXPLAINED WOULD FURTHERENHANCE THESE EXPECTED POSITIVE OUTCOMES. ON TOP OF THIS, ANTICIPATING HIGHER PRICINGTHROUGH THIS FUND REDUCES OUR ASK TO THE STATE DOWN TO 70% OF THE MAXIMUM TAX CREDIT ALLOCATION. Put together, THESE THREE FINANCING INNOVATIONSENSURE CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THE SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES WE DESCRIBED. WE Ascertain THE MONTE REA VILLAGE AS A THRIVINGINTERGENERATIONAL COMMUNITY WHERE RESIDENTS OF ALL AGES ARE SUPPORTED IN REACHING THEIREDUCATIONAL, ECONOMIC AND PERSONAL POTENTIAL.BEST PRACTICES AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN ANDCONSTRUCTION ARE MADE POSSIBLE BY INNOVATIONS AND THE FINANCING PLAN. AND SERVICE DELIVERY IS ENRICHED THROUGH NEWCOMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS AND REIMAGINED AND EXPANDED OPPORTUNITY CENTER. WE Picture THIS REDEVELOPMENT AS A TRULY UNIQUEOPPORTUNITY TO NURTURE RESIDENTS AT ALL STAGES OF LIFE AND TO INVEST IN A GROWING COMMUNITY’SFUTURE. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENTTHIS AFTERNOON.WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR QUESTIONS.[ APPLAUSE ]>> Thanks for coming. AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR JURY QUESTIONS. AS YOU RESPOND, PLEASE, If you are able to, TAKE THEOPPORTUNITY TO HIGHLIGHT THE INNOVATIVE ASPECTS OF YOUR PROPOSAL AND YOUR CONCEPTS. START OUT WITH JAMES. >> SO THE ANNUAL GROUND LEASE PAYMENTS ANDTHE STRONG FAMILIES FUND DOLLARS WOULD FUND THE SOCIAL SERVICE COORDINATION? >> YES. >> AND THAT’S OVER 10, 15 YEARS? >> THE GRUNT LEASE IS FOR 49 YEARS BUT THEFUND WOULD BE FOR TEN YEARS. >> AND THE PAYMENTS WOULD COME IN OVER THATPERIOD. >> IT WOULD BE EVERY YEAR FOR TEN. >> WOULD YOU Hear THE HOUSING AUTHORITY PARTNERINGWITH A NONPROFIT DEVELOPER OR DOING THIS PROJECT ON THEIR OWN? >> THE STUDENT HOUSING PORTION? >> THE PUBLIC HOUSING THE[ INAUDIBLE] PORTION. >> I Believe WE SEE THEM DOING THE PROJECT THEMSELVES.FROM OUR SILENT VISIT, IT SEEMS THEY’RE SOPHISTICATEDIN PUBLIC HOUSING AUTHORITY AND WE THINK THEY WOULD BE CAPABLE. >> WOULD THE HOUSING AUTHORITY DETERMINE, SELECT THE STUDENT HOUSING DEVELOPER? >> WE Judge THAT THEY WOULD Liberate AN RFPFOR THAT PORTION OF THE SITE THAT IS IN LINE WITH THE MONTE REA VILLAGE AS THEY WOULD IMAGINEIT. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY WOULD BE APPLYING FORTHE 9% TAX CREDITS, SO THE TIMING LINES UP THAT WAY. >> ONE QUICK QUESTION. THE MAXIMUM ALLOCATION FOR CALIFORNIA IS TWOAND A HALF MILLION? >> MMHMM. >> AND YOU PENCE SIMPLED OUT A MILLION EIGHT. >> YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. >> IS THAT BECAUSE OF THE BASIS OR YOU THOUGHTTHAT WOULD BE A MORE COMPETITIVE APPLICATION? >> WE THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE A MORE COMPETITIVEAPPLICATION. >> GREAT PRESENTATION. THANK YOU. SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SITE PLAN AND THEDECISIONS YOU MADE. YOU KEPT THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER ATTHE BACK OF THE SITE. JUST WANTED TO HEAR A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THETHOUGHT PROCESS THERE. >> YES. We are therefore KEPT IT IN THE BACK OF THE SITE.IT WAS ORIGINALLY THERE There are still WAS A DEBATEWHETHER TO BRING IT UP FRONT. BUT WE HAD Measured THAT WE WOULD LIKE TOACQUIRE THE COMMUNITY GARDEN NEXT DOOR AND WE FELT THAT WOULD BE A GOOD PORTION TO KINDOF CONNECT AND BRING IN THAT PROGRAM, AS WELL AS WITH THE PARKING. SO SINCE THE PARKING SORT OF WORKED OUT THATWAY, PEOPLE WHO WOULD NOT WOULD PERHAPS NOT BE FROM THE COMMUNITY PARK OVER THEREAND NOT GO DIRECTLY THROUGH THE COURTYARDS THEMSELVES. SO IT’S SORT OF LIKE AN ALIGNMENT. >> OKAY. >> BECAUSE WE’RE ENVISIONING THE OPPORTUNITYCENTER AS ALSO OFFERING PROGRAM THAT SENDS SOME COMMUNITY MEMBERS OUTSIDE OF MONTE REAVILLAGE, WE THOUGHT EASY ACCESS FROM THERE FOR THE OUTSIDE COMMUNITY WOULDN’T INTRUDEON SOME OF THE RESIDENTS’ Privacy .>> ON THE IMAGE WE SHOWED, YOU SAW THE FRONTFROM THE COURTYARD. IT DOES HAVE TWO Fronts IN SOME Sense. >> THE THOUGHT IS PROGRAMS WITHIN THE CENTERWOULD BE OPEN TO THE RESIDENTS OF[ INAUDIBLE] AND OPEN TO RESIDENTS OF THE OUTSIDE SURROUNDINGCOMMUNITY. GOT IT. THANKS >> JERRY IS INTERESTED IN HOW THE TEAM CAME UP WITH THE DENSITY OF 71 Legions. THAT’S BEEN RECONFIGURED SINCE SOME OF YOURINITIAL THINKING. MAYBE YOU COULD ALSO TELL US HOW THE COMMUNITYGARDEN SITE FACTORED INTO THAT. IS THAT ADDITIONAL LAND THAT WASN’T PART OFTHE BASIC SITE, IF WE UNDERSTAND IT CORRECTLY? JUST HOW YOU KIND OF CAME UP WITH 71 AS OPPOSEDTO 60 OR80. >>[ INAUDIBLE] A Batch OF BACK AND FORTH BETWEENTHE[ INAUDIBLE] AND FINANCE. USING THE COMMUNITY GARDEN SITE, AS You are familiar with, OUR INITIAL PROPOSAL HAD CIRCULATION THROUGH THE FRONT OF THE SITE.OUR FEAR WAS THAT REPLICATED THE CURRENT SITUATIONON THE SITE IN WHICH THE CARS AND THE TRAFFIC FOR THE SITE ARE REALLY A HAZARD AND NOT CONSISTENTWITH OUR VISION OF THESE[ INAUDIBLE] FOR CHILDREN. >> TO GIVE MORE THAT THAT. I GUESS WITH THE DESIGN, THERE WAS JUST MAINTAININGI GUESS THE CERTAIN ASPECTS WE WANTED TO INCLUDE IN THE DESIGN. WE WOULD COME BACK INTERTIVELY TO MAKE SURETHE ARRANGEMENT WOULD WORK SO THAT Backward and forward IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO KIND OF[ INAUDIBLE ]. STILL A FLEXIBLE UNIT MIX. SO 71 VERSUS 72 PROBABLY ISN’T THAT BIGOF A DIFFERENCE. >> GREAT. >> THANKS FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. SO ACTUALLY, ELIJAH ASKED MY FIRST QUESTIONAND MICHAEL ASKED MY SECOND. 71 Units IS INCLUDED IN THE STUDENT HOUSING? >>[ NO RESPONSE] >> THANKS. >> HOW DID YOU HAPPEN TO GET THE EXTRA PIECEOF LAND? >> THE COMMUNITY GARDEN? CURRENTLY OWNED BY THE CITY OF SANTABARBARA.WE ACTUALLY INCLUDED IN THE ACQUISITION PRICETO PAY THEM FOR THAT LAND. WE WOULD BE EXPANDING THE AMOUNT OF BEDS SOWE THINK THEY WOULD BE A MENNABLE TO THIS IDEA. >>>> SO THERE WAS A COMMENT EARLIER ABOUT THE CREDITS GOING FOR[ INAUDIBLE ]. WHERE DID THAT COME FROM? >> WE HEARD FROM THE SANTABARBARA HOUSINGAUTHORITY SOMEWHERE BETWEEN A BUCK SIX TO A BUCK 15 IN OUR ORIGINAL SUBMISSION WE HADLOWER TAX CREDIT PRICING. BECAUSE WE’RE TAPPING INTO THE[ INAUDIBLE] FUND, WE THOUGHT WITH AN INDICATOR AND FUND, WE COULD GET HIGHER PRICING FOR THE TAX CREDITS .>> AND LAST,[ INAUDIBLE] ALLOWED IN THE TAXCREDIT PROGRAM? >> THE TAX CREDITS, THE[ INAUDIBLE] AND USESARE ONLY FOR THE ELDERLY PROGRAM PORTION. WE SEE[ INAUDIBLE] >> A FOLLOWUP QUESTION WOULD HELP ADDRESSSOME OF THE INDIVIDUAL QUESTIONS. SO THE STUDENT HOUSING FINANCED SEPARATELYBUT HOW DO YOU SEE IT BEING INTEGRATED IN YOUR PROJECT? BECAUSE THERE OBVIOUSLY MAY HAVE A SHORTERTENURE THAN THE OTHER RESIDENTS. HOW WOULD YOU SEE ALL THAT FITTING TOGETHER? >> THERE IS A Fleck OF A BALANCE BETWEEN THAT. SO YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES? RIGHT, THE RESIDENTS THEMSELVES? >> YES. >> SO THERE IS A Part OF OVERLAP BUT WE SEEMOST OF THE INTEGRATION HAPPENING WITH THE OPPORTUNITY CENTER. SO, THERE WAS A BIT OF A GIVE AND TAKE HOWWE COULD[ INAUDIBLE] THE LAND WHERE WE COULD PLACE THAT.THAT’S WHY IT’S SORT OF IN BALANCE. IT’S STILL KIND OF CONNECTED DESIGNWISE INSOME WAY. >> YEAH. SOME OF THE PROGRAMS THAT WE MENTIONED ATTHE OPPORTUNITY CENTER WOULD ACTUALLY DRAW VOLUNTEERS FROM THE STUDENTS. WE ACTUALLY KIND OF WENT Backward and forward WITHTHIS AND THOUGHT WE DO KNOW THAT SANTABARBARA AND CITY COLLEGE DOES CURRENTLY OFFER SOMEHOUSE TO SOME STUDENTS. WE Foresaw IF THE STUDENTS GOT SOME HELP FROMTHE COLLEGE, THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE COLLEGE, THEN THEY WOULD BE REQUIRED TOPROVIDE SOME KIND OF SERVICE. >> THERE ARE MODELS OF THIS ELSEWHERE IN STUDENTHOUSING AND ELDERLY HOUSING BEING COMBINED. IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS THEY’RE DOING ITA SITE CALLED TREE HOUSE. IN EUROPE IT’S A THING, IN THE NETHERLANDS. IT’S WORKED QUITE SUCCESSFULLY. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.( APPLAUSE) NEWARK >>>>>> – good evening >>>>>> GOOD AFTERNOON.THANK YOU FOR COMING. WE WANT TO SHOWCASE WHAT IS TRULY AN INNOVATIVESOLUTION TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING. WE HAVE[ NAMING NAMES] AS WE ALL KNOW, WE’RECURRENTLY EXPERIENCING AN AFFORDABLE HOUSING CRISIS THAT SPANS THE ENTIRE COUNTRY AND SANTABARBARAIS NO EXCEPTION. HOUSING COSTS HAVE RISEN FASTER THAN INCOMESFOR MANY LOCAL RESIDENTS. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE FOR LOWEST INCOMEHOUSEHOLDS WHO HAVE SEEN RENTS FOR THE MOST AFFORDABLE HOUSING INCREASE DRAMATICALLY ASMORE AND MORE RENTERS ARE CHASING A FIXED AND SHRINKING SUPPLY OF AFFORDABLE HOMES.FOR THESE REASONS, IT’S CRUCIAL NOW MORE THANEVER TO PRESERVE AND CREATE AFFORDABLE RENTAL HOUSING IN SANTABARBARA. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT OUR PLAN FOR MONTE REAVILLAGE WILL DO.[ LAUGHTER] OKAY. HOWEVER, WE UNDERSTAND THAT AFFORDABLE HOUSINGDOES NOT SIMPLY MEAN SUBSIDIZED REPRESENTS. IT’S ABOUT LIFESTYLE Alternative FOR OUR RESIDENTSAFTER MOVING INTO THE HOMES AND DURATION LIVING THERE. OUR GOAL WITH MONTE REA VILLAGE IS TO INCREASETHE LONGTERM AFFORDABILITY FOR RESIDENTS BY DECREASING THE COSTS OF HEALTHY LIVING. WE’VE OUTLINED FIVE INNOVATIVE STRATEGIESIN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS OUTCOME AND THEY’RE DIAGRAMMED ON THE LEFTHAND SIDE OF THE SCREEN.THEY’RE PROMOTING HEALTH, CREATING A SENSEOF OWNERSHIP, FOSTERING COMMUNITY, EDUCATING RESIDENTS AND EXPANDING AFFORDABILITY. NOW, AS WE WALK YOU THROUGH THE DESIGNS FOROUR COMMUNITY, WE’LL BE LINKING BACK TO THESE FIVE INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES AND EXPLAIN HOWTHEY’LL ALL COME TO BETTER OUR RESIDENTS’ LIVES IN MONTE REA VILLAGE. >> Thanks for coming. IN CREATION OF THIS INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES, WE ANALYZED THE MONTE REA SITE FROM OUR[ INAUDIBLE ]. THE UPPER PART OF THE SCREEN ARE THE LANDUSERS AND WALKING RADIUS DIAGRAMS. THIS ON THE SITE IS[ INAUDIBLE ]. IT’S ALSO CLOSELY LOCATED TO THE ELEMENTARYSCHOOL. Likewise, CLOSELY LOCATED TO THE BEACH FRONT. Too Appearing TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SCREENIS THE TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS. IN ADDRESSING THE TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM FOROUR RESIDENTS, WE PROPOSED AN ONSITE[ INAUDIBLE] PROGRAM TO REDUCE THE COST OF CAR OWNERSHIP. WHILE THERE’S A BUS STOP ON SITE, WE PROPOSEDA BIKE STATION WITH A NEW BIKE PATH TO BE USED BY SANTA BOB CITY COLLEGE STUDENTS ANDALSO BY THE RESIDENTS. THIS IS ON THE SITE AND INTERACTION WITH THENEIGHBORS AND MANAGEMENT STAFF OF MONTE REA VILL.WE REALIZE THE CURRENT ISSUES OF THE SITESUCH AS THE POOR LAYOUT OF Parking space AND THE LACK OF CONTINUING OPEN SPACES, MAKINGWALKING AND DRIVING DIFFICULT ON SITE. THERE’S Likewise THE ISSUE OF THE LACK OF THEDEFENSIBLE SPACE. DUE TO THE ISOLATED POSITIONS OF THE BUILDINGSWHICH HAS BROUGHT UNLAWFUL ACTIVITIES ON THE PROPERTY IN THE PAST. THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITIES IS ALSO ADEQUATESIZE AND THE LOCATION OF THE SITES DOESN’T DO THAT KIND OF SPACE JUSTICE. ANOTHER PROBLEM WITH THE SITE WAS THAT THE[ INAUDIBLE] OF THE BUILDING[ INAUDIBLE ]. IMAGE OF PUBLIC HOUSING OUR PROPOSED SITEPLAN. IN ADDRESSING THIS PROBLEM, ALONG WITH OUR[ INAUDIBLE ], WE PROPOSED A DESIGN TO PROVIDE FOR THE[ INAUDIBLE ]. COMPRISING OF 26 TOWNHOMES AND 20 Parts OFMULTIFAMILY BUILDING WITH 18 Parking zone. IN THE SITE LAYOUT, WE’VE POSITIONED PROPOSEDPARKING SPACES ON THE PREFERRED AREAS OF THE SITE ACCESSIBLE FROM THE MONTECITO AND RANCHERIASTREETS. WE Likewise CREATE OPEN WALKABLE AND DEFENSIBLESPACES THAT PROMOTE SAFETY AND FOSTER INTERACTION BETWEEN THE RESIDENTS.OUR PROPOSED GARDEN FEATURE, THE EXISTINGCOMMUNITY GARDEN TO THE SITE. ON SITE WOULD ALLOW THE RESIDENTS TO GROWAND SELL PRODUCE AND FISH. THAT WILL PROVIDE AFFORDABLE AND HEALTHY CHOICESFOR THE REST OF THE NEIGHBORING COMMUNITY. IN ADDITION, OUR PROPOSED TOWNHOUSE WOULDCREATE A SENSE OF OWNERSHIP FOR THE RESIDENTS. THE MULTIFAMILY BUILDING WILL HOUSE THE FAMILYOPPORTUNITY CENTER, FRESH FOOD COOP, A COFFEE SHOP AND BIKE STATION ALL TO MAKE MONTE REAVILLAGE A DESTINATION THAT REVITALIZES THE NEIGHBORING COMMUNITY. >> Thanks for coming FOR THAT INTERESTING INSIGHTINTO OUR DEVELOPMENT. ONE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS DEVELOPMENTNEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. ONE GREAT THING ABOUT THIS DEVELOPMENT, THATIT IS ALL ENCOMPASSING AS IT CALM DATES DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS.NOW TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE DAY IN THE LIFEOF ONE OF OUR FUTURE RESIDENTS. MEET ELAINE, A RECENTLY RETIRED TEACHER FROMTHE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WHICH IS MINUTES AWAY FROM OUR SITE. SHE AND HER HUSBAND SPEND THE MORNING ON THEBEAUTIFUL BEACH, ONE OF THE Resource THIS Orientation OFFERS. THEREAFTER, MICHAEL IS ABLE TO USE THE CARSHARE AT MOP REVILLAGE TO GO PICK UP SOME OF THE NEW FURNITURE THEY JUST PURCHASED. SINCE THE RETIRING COUPLE NO LONGER WORK, IT’S NOT NECESSARY FOR THEM TO OWN A CAR. SO WE’VE PROVIDED ACCESS FOR THEM TO USE ONEWHEN THEY NEED IT, THEREBY SAVING THEM MONEY ON THINGS LIKE CAR INSURANCE AND GAS THUSREDUCING THEIR COST OF LIVING AND INCREASE AFFORDABILITY.WHILE MICHAEL IS AWAY, ELAINE HANDS OUT ATMONTE REA CAFE WHERE SHE ENJOYS HER FAVORITE SANDWICHES. SHE INTERACTS WITH THE SANTABARBARA CITYCOLLEGE AT THIS LOCATION BECAUSE THEY ALSO HAVE THEIR LUNCH BREAK HERE. THIS RETAIL ASPECT OF OUR SITE ENHANCES THECOMMUNITY AROUND THIS LOCATION BY CREATING A SPACE WHERE NEIGHBORS CAN GATHER AND INTERACTWITH ONE ANOTHER. IN THE EARLY EVENING, SHE GOES TO THE AQUAPONICSFEATURE WHICH ALSO THE KIDS THAT COME FROM THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ALSO HANG AROUND. SHE CHATS WITH THEM. BEING THAT SHE WAS A RECENT TEACHER AT THEIRSCHOOL, SHE’S Given IN THEIR EDUCATION. THEY LEARN ABOUT GARDENING AT SCHOOL AND THEYALSO COME HOME AND ENHANCE THEIR EDUCATION WITH OUR INNOVATIVE AQUAPONICS SYSTEM. SHE’S Likewise A VOLUNTEER AT THE OPPORTUNITYCENTER WHERE SHE TEACHES ADULT ENGLISH TO HELP BETTER IMPROVE THEIR SKILLS AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES. LATER ON, SHE GOES IN THE ELEVATOR IN THEMULTIFAMILY BUILDING TO HER APARTMENT WHERE SHE LOOKS OUT ON HER SURROUNDINGS, SAYS HITO HER NEIGHBORS AND IS GLAD SHE LIVES IN SUCH A WONDERFUL LOCATION.OUR DEVELOPMENT PROVIDES THE OPPORTUNITY FORENHANCING COMMUNITY, CREATING INTERGENERATIONAL CONNECTIONS AND ALSO INCREASING AFFORDABILITYFOR ALL AGE GROUPS. NOW, I INVITE MEGAN TO TELL YOU MORE ABOUTDAYS IN THE LIFE OF OTHER FAMILIES HERE AT MONTE REA VILLAGE. >> NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. THANK YOU, NICOLE. TO BETTER UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE FEATURESTHE NEW MONTE REA VILLAGE WILL OFFER, LET’S WALK THROUGH THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF ONE OFTHE RESIDENTS FAMILY. THE GARCIA FAMILY. JOHN, THE FATHER, HEADS TO WORK BY USING ONEOF THE BICYCLES FROM MONTE REA’S BIKE SHARE PROGRAM. WE’LL Locate ONE OF THE KIOSKS ON SITE TO HELPRESIDENTS TO OPT FOR BIKING TO WORK RATHER THAN DRIVING.THE BIKE SHARE FEATURE BOTH PROMOTES HEALTHYLIVING CHOICES, OUR FIRST INNOVATIVE STRATEGY AND EXPANDS AFFORDABILITY FOR PREVENTING THENEED FOR EXPENSIVE GAS AND CAR UPKEEP EXPENSES. TODAY, JOHN IS VERY EXCITED TO RUSH HOME FROMWORK BECAUSE TODAY IS THE ANNUAL HARVEST FESTIVAL. TWICE A Year, THE WHOLE OF MONTE REA VILLAGEGATHERS FOR A POTLUCK STYLE COOKOUT AS ILLUSTRATED WITH THIS RENDERING. THE RESIDENT GARDENERS HARVEST THE PRODUCETHEY GROW AND THEY SELL IT IN THE NEW FOOD COOP THAT LEASES SPACE RIGHT ON SITE TO THEMULTIFAMILY BUILDING. THEY SHARE THEIR HARVEST WITH THEIR NEIGHBORS. THE WHOLE EVENT IS ORGANIZED BY THE NEW HEALTHYLIVING DIRECTOR WHO WORKS OUT OF THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER. THE HEALTHY LIVING DIRECTOR IS THE ONE WHOBRINGS ALL OF MONTE REA VILLAGE’S ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES TOGETHER. SHE MAINTAINS A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MONTEREA VILLAGE AND THE RAVENRIA COMMUNITY GARDEN SO OUR RESIDENTS CAN GROW THEIR OWN VEGETABLES. SHE Also BRINGS IN STUDENT VOLUNTEERS FROMSANTABARBARA CITY COLLEGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL HORTICULTURE SCHOOL TO TEACH STUDENTS ANDADULTS HOW TO GARDEN.STUDENT VOLUNTEERS IN THE CULINARY PROGRAMUSE THE CENTER’S TEST KITCHEN TO TEACH THE GARDENERS HOW TO GROW WITH THEIR FRESHLY GROWNFRUITS AND VEGETABLES. EDUCATION IS A Massive Responsibility OF THE HEALTHY LIVINGDIRECTOR’S JOB. SHE Coachs THE STUDENTS ABOUT THE AQUAPONICSSYSTEM, THE CENTERPIECE. THE HEALTHY LIVING DIRECTOR AND ALL SHE DOESGOES BACK TO THE LIVING STRATEGIES IN PROMOTING HEALTH. THE FOOD COOP IS AN INTEGRAL PIECE OF OURLAND BECAUSE IT Permits Occupants TO FEEL PRIDE IN GROWING THE PRODUCE BUT CAN MAKE EXTRAINCOME. IT’S OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND WILL SERVE ASA PLACE FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO OBJECT THEIR LOCALLY GROWN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. HERE WE’RE LINKING BACK THE STRATEGY AS ASENSE OF OWNERSHIP AND EXPANDING AFFORDABILITY. BUT TODAY IS THE HARVEST FESTIVAL DAY. THE GARCIAS ARE BEAMING WITH PRIDE AS THESQUASH AND CORN AND STRAWBERRIES THAT THEY GREW ARE BEING SERVED TO THEIR FRIENDS ANDNEIGHBORS. OUR RESIDENTS CONTRIBUTE BY ADDING HERBS ANDSPICES THAT THEY GREW ON THEIR INDIVIDUAL PAL LET WALL GARDENING. AS YOU SEE, THEY GET A PALLET WALL ENCLOSUREWHERE THE RESIDENTS CAN CHOOSE TO UTILIZE THEM HOWEVER THEY WANT.THE GARCIAS ARE JOINED BY THE WHOLE COMMUNITYAT THE PATIO. THIS GREAT PUBLIC GREEN SPACE ACTS AS A FORMALAND INFORMAL GATHERING GROUNDS FOR ALL OF MONTE REA VILL. IT’S EASILY ACCESSED BY THE RESIDENTS ANDTHUS ENHANCING THE COMMUNITY OF MONTE REA VILLAGE. NOW ROBERT WILL WALK US THROUGH THE DESIGNASPECTS OF OUR PLAN. >> DURING OUR INITIAL APPROACH OF THE DESIGNOF MONTE REA VILLAGE, WE STRESSED THE IMPORTANCE OF A COMMUNITY THAT REACHED THE HOLISTIC ANDHEALTHY LIVING WITH THE PROGRAMS ON SITE AS WELL AS THE STRUCTURE THAT WILL HOUSE THESEACTIVITIES. ONE OF THE INITIAL DESIGNS WE ENCOUNTEREDWAS HOW TO ADDRESS THE PARKING SITUATION. DURING OUR VISIT TO THE SITE, WE MET WITHTHE SANTABARBARA HOUSING AUTHORITY WHICH THEY EXPRESSED THEIR DESIRE TO HAVE ONE PARKINGSPACE BER BEDROOM TO PER BEDROOM TO ADDRESS PROBLEMS ON SITE. WE UNDERSTOOD THE NEED TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNSOF OUR CLIENT, BUT WE Fully Trusted BY INTRODUCING MORE CARS ON TO THE SITE WASNOT THE ANSWER.FURTHERMORE, IT CONFLICTED WITH OUR DESIRETO CREATE A HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY. THEREFORE, WE DECIDED TO ADDRESS THE NEEDSOF OUR RESIDENTS IN A DIFFERENT WAY, BY PROVIDING AN ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION THAT DOUBLES THE EXISTINGPARKING SPACES ON SITE WHILE ALSO INTRODUCING MORE SUSTAINABLE AND AFFORDABLE Alternative TONAVIGATE THE CITY. OUR DESIGN WILL PROVIDE A TOTAL OF8 8P ARKINGSPACES WITH 12 OF THOSE SPACES IN TUCKED UNDERGARAGE SPACES WITH THE SIX[ INAUDIBLE ]. WHILE THE REMAINING 76 SURFACE PARKING SPACESARE DESIGNATED TOWARDS, FOUR OF THOSE SPACES ARE DESIGNATED TO STAFF MEMBERS OF THE FOCAS WELL AS FOUR ADDITIONAL SPACES DESIGNATED FOR RETAIL PARKING. “Were having” FOUR SPACES DESIGNATE TODAY THE NEWCAR SHARE PROGRAM THAT WE IMPLEMENTED ON SITE WITH THE ADDITIONAL 56 PARKING SPACES STRICTLYDESIGNATED FOR THE MONTE REA VILLAGE RESIDENTS.WE DESIRED TO CREATE A DESIGN THAT DID NOTIMPOSE ITSELF ON TO THE COMMUNITY BUT RATHER THAN[ INAUDIBLE ]. THE TOWNHOMES ON SITE ARE ARRANGEED IN SUCHA WAY THAT THEY FRAMED THE OPEN GREEN SPACES TO REINFORCE THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY AND DEFENSIBLEOUTDOOR SPACE. FRONTING WEST MONTECITO STREET, THERE ARETEN, TWOBEDROOM TONE HOME UNITS. THE INTERIOR OF THE SITE, THERE ARE Likewise TENADDITIONAL THREEBEDROOM TOWNHOME UNITS THAT FRONT THE AQUAPONICS GARDEN FEATURE. THERE ARE SIX, FOURBEDROOM UNITS THAT HAVEENOUGH SPACE TO BE TUCKED UNDER THE PARKING SPACES. THE STAIRS IN THE TONE HOW MANY UNITS ALSOGO WITH A TOWER THAT Equips NATURAL LIGHT AND GIVES THE RESIDENTS A LUX URIAS OUTDOORLIVING SPACE THAT COMPLIMENTS THE COMMUNITY OF THE GREEN SPACE BLOW. NEXT SLIDE PLEASE. WE INCLUDED A Coffee shop, A BIKE STATION, A FOOD COOP AND THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER AS WELL AS A GYM TO SERVE THE RESIDENTS OFMONTE REA VILLAGE TO REINFORCE THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE THAT WE’RE TRYING TO CREATE.ABOVE THE GROUND FLOOR ARE TWO RESIDENTIALFLOORS THAT CONTAIN TWO FOURBEAD ROOM UNITS, TWO THREEBEDROOM UNITS AND SIX TWOBEDROOMUNITS PER FLOOR. ON THE ROOF OF THE MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS ASWELL AS THE TOWNHOMES AND AS WELL AS THE COVERING THE SURFACE Parking zone ARE PHOTOVOLTAICPAMS THAT ENABLE US TO PROVIDE NEARLY A 55% OF THE ENERGY DEMANDS ON SITE. WE INCLUDED SOLAR WATER HEATING PACKAGES THATWILL CONVERT THE SUNLIGHT INTO RENEWABLE ENERGY TO PROVIDE HOT WATER FOR THE SITE. WITH OUR REDESIGN OF MONTE REA VILLAGE, WECREATED A HOLISTIC, HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT THAT IS REFLECTED IN THE MEAN PROGRAMS WEINTRODUCED TO THE SITE AS WELL AS THE STRUCTURES IN THE OPEN SPACES THAT WILL HOUSE THESE NEWINNOVATIVE DESIGN STRATEGY.IT’S ALSO IMPORTANCE TO NOTE THAT WHILE WEDEVELOPING THE EXISTING UNITS ON SITE, WE’VE ALSO ADDED 18 ADDITIONAL UNITS. THAT’S 18 MORE Lineages WITH THE HEALTHY COMMUNITYTO CALL HOME. AND NOW I’LL PASS IT OVER TO DAVID WHO WILLDISCUSS WHAT WE BELIEVE IS OUR MOST CREATIVE PART OF THE PROJECT, The funding. >> THANKS, ROBERT. SO THE QUESTION NOW, HOW MUCH DOES ALL OFTHIS INNOVATION COST USnd HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR IT? TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION, WE’VE COME UP WITHTWO SOLUTIONS. THE FIRST US USES 9% AND THE SECOND USES 4% TAX CREDITS, BOND FINANCING THAT GETS CONVERTED IMMEDIATELY INTO A LONGTERM LOAN. THE REASON FOR PROVIDING TWO OPTIONS COMESFROM THE FACT THAT THERE’S A LIMITED POOL OF 9% TAX CREDITS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIAAND IS A COMPETITIVE PROCESS. JUST IN CASE APPLICATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED, WE WANTED TO WORK THROUGH A BACKUP PLAN TO MAKE SURE WE GET THIS PROJECT FINANCEDLOOKING AT THIS SCREEN, THE LEFTHAND SIDE REFERS TO THE 9 %, OPTION ONE.AND 4 %, OPTION TWO.I’LL GO THROUGH OPTION ONE FIRST. SO IN CALIFORNIA, INVESTORSRS PAYING $1.14 FOR EVERY ONE DOLLAR OF CREDIT THEY RECEIVE. AT THIS Freedom WE’VE CALCULATED OUR PROJECTCAN RECEIVE OVER $11 MILLION IN EQUITY FROM TAX CREDIT FINANCING ALONE. TO FILL THAT 20% GAP, WE FOUND A LIST OF GRANTSWHICH ARE LISTED ON THE TOP LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN, INCLUDING THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING SUSTAINABLECOMMUNITIES GRANT WHICH PROMOTES TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AMONGOTHERS. THE CENTER OF THE SCREEN, WE’VE ITEMIZED ALLTHE DEVELOPMENT COSTS AND THEY’RE BROKEN DOWN INTO DOLLAR PER UNIT, DOLLAR PER SQUARE FOOTAND TOTAL. THEY ALL COME OUT TO 13.8 MILLION DOLLARSFOR OPTION ONE. MOVING DOWN TO OUR CASH FLOW SUMMARY ON THEBOTTOM LEFT SIDE, YOU MAY NOTICE THAT THERE’S ZERO ALTHINK LO THE WHOLE LINE FOR DEALT SERVICETHROUGHOUT THE ENTIRETY OF THE PROJECT.THAT’S BECAUSE, AS I Have just mentioned, THERE’SNO NEED TO TAKE ON ANY DEBT WITH THIS OPTION. WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY THE LENDER, THIS MEANSREPRESENTS CAN STAY LOW WITHOUT HURTING THE BOTTOM LINE. IT Too Wants IT Imparts US MORE ROOM TO INCREASEOUR OPERATING EXPENSES TO GO TOWARDS ALL THESE PROGRAMSES THAT WE LISTED TO ENRICH THE RESIDENTSLIVES. IN ADDITION TO THAT, OUR PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELSAND SOLAR WATER HEATING PANELS COMBINE TO SAVE US $ 21,000 PER YEAR IN UTILITY COSTS.NOW, TOBY WILL WALK US THROUGH THE SECONDOPTION. >> Thanks for coming, DAVID.[ INAUDIBLE] COMBINATION OF LESS COMPETITIVE4% LOW INCOME TAX CREDITS.[ INAUDIBLE] THE HIGHLIGHT OF THIS OPTION IS THE DEBT FINANCING WHICH WILL CUT OFF 56% OF THE TOTAL DEVELOPMENTCOSTS, ABOUT$ 8MILLION. WE OPTED FOR THE[ INAUDIBLE] AS OPPOSED TOA CONVENTIONAL LOAN. IT HAS MORE AFFORDABLE Terms. IN IT, THERE’S A Building[ INAUDIBLE] LOAN WRAPPED IN ONE. IT IS ALSO[ INAUDIBLE] WITH 40 YEAR AMIT ISPERIOD AND LOAN TIME. AT THE LOWER PART OF THE SCREEN, INDICATESTHE ESCALATION OF OUR NET OPERATING INCOME FROM YEAR TO YEAR 15. THE[ INAUDIBLE] OUR DEVELOPMENT MEET THAT IS REQUIREMENT. AT YEAR ZERO, THE DFC RATIO IS 1.5. YEAR 15 IT’S AT 2.2. AS DAVID MENTIONED EARLIER, THE SECOND OPTIONWILL BE USED IF APPLICATION FOR THE 9% TAX CREDITS IS NOT ACCEPTED. >> Thanks for coming. NOW YOU’VE SEEN AND HEARD ALL THE INNOVATIVEFEATURES WE HAVE TO OFFER FOR THE NEW MONTE REA VILLAGE. ALL OF THEM LINKING BACK TO OUR MAIN GOALOF INCREASING THE LONGTERM AFFORDABILITY FOR OUR RESIDENTS BY DECREASING THEIR COST OFHEALTHY LIVING. WE’LL OPEN UP TO QUESTIONS. >> THE JUNIORS WILL HAVE QUESTIONS FOR THEPRESENTERS. AS YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT YOUR RESPONSES, PLEASETHINK ABOUT HOW YOU MIGHT WANT TO SHOWCASE OR HIGHLIGHT ANY OF THE INNOVATIONS OR CONCEPTSTHAT YOU THINK ARE INNOVATIVE IN THIS PROPOSAL YOU PUT BEFORE US. START OFF WITH JAMES. >> Thanks for coming. SO A TOTAL OF 48 Gangs, RIGHT? >> 46. >> YOUR Lists[ INAUDIBLE] VERY WELL. A COMMENT I HAD ON THE COMMUNITY SPACE WITHTHE RETAIL ON THE FIRST FLOOR. SO THAT’S COMMERCIAL AND[ INAUDIBLE] YOU WOULDHAVE IN THAT SPACE. I WANTED TO COMPLIMENT YOU ON THE DESIGN. AFFORDABLE HOUSING SHOULD LOOK LIKE EVERYTHINGELSE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND IT APPEARS TO BE VERY INVITING.I DON’T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. >> Thanks for coming. >> SO THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION. THAT WAS GREAT. I LIKED THE DETAIL ABOUT THE HEALTHY LIVINGDIRECTOR AS PART OF THE REDEVELOPMENT AND HAVING STAFF TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO SUSTAINSOME OF THE CONCEPTS THAT YOU’VE DEVELOPED. HOW IS THAT STAFF PERSON INCLUDED IN YOUROPERATIONAL COSTS? AND HOW IS THAT PERSON SUPPORTED? >> YEAH. WE INCLUDED THAT IN OUR OPERATING EXPENSES. We are therefore INCLUDED AN EXTRA SALARY, THE GOINGRATE OF SALARIES FOR THAT TYPE OF POSITION IN SANTABARBARA AND ADDED THAT TO OUR YEARLYOPERATING EXPENSES.ALONG WITH THE TWO EXISTING STAFF THAT AREALREADY AT MONTE REA VILLAGE. >> SO WE KNOW THAT THERE’S A TREMENDOUS SHORTAGEOF AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN SANTABARBARA AND THROUGHOUT THE NATION. YOU DECIDED WITH 46 Gangs. YOU COULD HAVE DONE MORE UNITS, LESS UNITS. THE JURY IS VERY INTERESTED IN HOW YOU CAMEUP WITH THAT AS A OPTIMAL NUMBER. ALSO IN THE CASE OF YOUR PRESENTATION, YOUGAVE US TWO FINANCING OPTIONS.WOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR DESIGN UNDER EACH OFTHE Alternative TO HAVE MORE OR LESS UNITS, PARTICULARLY GIVEN THE AHC’S CRITERIA, THE T.O.D FUND? I Conceive IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT TO HIGHLIGHTWHAT YOU BELIEVE TO BE THE TOD ASPECTS OF THIS PROPOSAL. >> IN TERMS OF THE TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT, WE THINK THE ASPECT CAN WE GO BACK TO THE FIRST SLIDE. WE Repute THE ASPECT OF OUR SITE OR DEVELOPMENTTHAT’S BRINGING THAT WE’RE MEETING THAT CRITERIA IS THE BIKE PATH THAT WE’RE INTRODUCING. IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOP RIGHTHAND CORNER INTHAT DIAGRAM, WE’RE CREATING A BIKE PATH THAT CONNECTS FROM OUR SITES DOWN THROUGH SANTABARBARACITY COLLEGE TO THE BEACH FRONT. WE Conceive THAT’S Satisfying THE CRITERIA BECAUSEIF YOU LOOK AT THE SANTABARBARA CITY MAPS, THAT WAS UPDATED RECENTLY, YOU WOULD Ensure THEREARE GAPS IN THE BIKE PATH AND THEY’RE TRYING TO IMPROVE THE BIKE PATH FOR RESIDENTS TOUSE BICYCLE PATHS AS AN OPTION, INSTEAD OF TAKING THEIR CAR.SO WE THINK THAT MEETS ONE OF THE CRITERIAS. Also BECAUSE WE’RE PROVIDING OUR PLAN WASTO ACTION SEN WAIT THE ACCENTUATE THE BUS STOP LOCATION ACCENTUATE THE BUS STOP. THEY CAN Exactly Make THE BUS OR USE THE BIKEPROGRAM THAT’S AVAILABLE. SO WE THINK THOSE THINGS MEET THE TOD REQUIREMENT. >> AND SORT OF INCLUDED IN THAT, WHAT ROBERTWAS POINTING OUT, BY ADDING 18 MORE Contingents THAN WHAT IS EXISTING, THAT Signifies THAT 18 LESS FAMILIES WHO ARE SORT OF BEING PUSHED OUT TO THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE CITY OR COUNTY, THAT’S 18 LESS FAMILIES THAT HAVE TO DRIVE TO WORK. SO THE AHHC IS >> IN TERMS OF THE NUMBERS OF HOW WE GOT THE 46 Groups, ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANTED TO DOWAS WE WANTED TO INTRODUCE TWO DIFFERENT BUILDING TOPOGRAPHIES INTO THE SITE. WITH THAT, WE WANTED TO GIVE THE RESIDENTSA SENSE OF OWNERSHIP WHICH IS WHY WE DECIDED IT WAS NECESSARY TO PROVIDE THE RESIDENTSWITH TOWNHOME UNITS TO GIVE THEM THAT SENSE OF OWNERSHIP AND TO MAKE THEM COMFORTABLEIN THE PLACE THEY CALL HOME.AS WELL AS WE THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT, EVENTHOUGH THIS IS AFFORDABLE HOUSING, IT SHOULDN’T Really BE Considered AS A TRADITIONAL AFFORDABLEHOUSING MODEL. BY INCLUDING THE MULTIFAMILY UNITS, WE WEREABLE TO ADD RETAIL INTO THE DEVELOPMENT ITSELF. JUST IN KEEPING UP WITH THE CHARACTER OF THESITE, LIKE I SAID, WE DID NOT WANT OUR DESIGN TO IMPOSE ITSELF ON THE COMMUNITY, BUT JUSTRATHER COMPLEMENT IT. WE FELT THAT WAS A COMFORTABLE NUMBER FORUS TO ACTUALLY COMPLETE THE GOALS THAT WE HAD IN MIND. >> Thanks for coming FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS. COULD YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH OF THE GROUND FLOOROF THE CORNER BUILDING IS FOR THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER? AND HOW MUCH OF IT IS FOR THE COOP AND RETAILPORTION? >> IN TERMS OF SQUARE FOOTAGE? >> YEAH, CAN YOU SHOW ME WHERE IT IS .>> I CAN POINT TO THAT. IF YOU LOOK RIGHT HERE WHERE IT HIGHLIGHTSIT AS A PRIVATE SPACE, SO THAT WOULD BE THE FAMILY OPPORTUNITY CENTER. EVERYWHERE THAT HIGHLIGHTS IT AS THE PUBLICIS THE MORE RETAIL ASPECT OF THE DEVELOPMENT. WE HAVE THE BIKE STATION HERE, THE COFFEESHOP AT THE CORNER AND THE FOOD COOP WHERE THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO SELL SOME OF THE PRODUCETHAT THEY GROW. WE INCLUDED THIS GYM AS THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLEASPECT, TO GIVE THEM AN OPTION OF EXERCISE AND BECOME PHYSICALLY ACTIVE, EVEN IN A AFFORDABLEHOUSING DEVELOPMENT. >> GREAT. WHICH ARE THE PORTIONS THAT THERE’S SOME INCOMETO BE REALIZED FROM? >> THE GROWING? >> YES. >> THE COFFEE SHOP AND THE COOP? >> YEAH. We are therefore INCLUDED IN OUR GROWTH POTENTIAL RENT, WE’VE INCLUDED RETAIL INCOME. SO WE STRUCTURED IT SO WE’LL JUST BE LEASINGTHE SPACE.WE STRUCTURED IT SO WE’RE OFFERING BELOW MARKETRENT TO KIND OF ATTRACT SOME OF THE LOCAL BUSINESSES IN THERE. RIGHT, IT WOULD BE JUST A LOCAL COFFEE SHOPMOVING IN, FOOD COOP COMING IN AND THE SANTABARBARA BIKE STATION. >> GREAT. AND THEN I Ponder ON YOUR FINANCING PAGE, YOUHAD A TOTAL DEVELOPMENT WHAT WAS YOUR TOTAL YOUR TOTAL HARD COSTS PER UNIT IS 242. OKAY, GREAT. >> PER UNIT. >> I’M CURIOUS, MAYBE YOU COULD TALK AGAINABOUT THE DECISION ABOUT THE Parking zone. DID YOU SEE A TRADEOFF BETWEEN THE SITE AREAFOR THE PARKING AND POTENTIAL DENSITY? >> WITH THE Parking zone, IT WAS SOMETHINGTHAT WE WENT Backward and forward ON. WE JUST Imagined TO INTRODUCE MORE PARKINGSPACES INTO THE THAN WHAT WAS REQUIRED WOULD CRICKET WHAT WE WERE TRYING TO DO AND THAT’STO CREATE A HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY. SO ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID WITHIN THE PROGRAMSAS IMPLEMENTED WAS TO ALSO INTRODUCE THE RESIDENTS TO NEW SUSTAINABLE WAYS OF TRANSPORTING, NAVIGATINGTHROUGH THE CITY AND REALLY TRY TO GET AT THE HEART OF THE ISSUE, IS THAT IT’S A CULTURALTHING.IF WE CAN BEGIN TO CHANGE THE WAY THAT THERESIDENTS UNDERSTAND SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION AND PROVIDES THEM WITH THE OPPORTUNITIES TOACCESS THAT, THEN THAT CAN BEGIN TO CHANGE THE CULTURE AND SHIFT IT FROM SOMETHING THAT’SA CAR CENTRIC CULTURE TO SOMETHING THAT IS MORE SUSTAINABLE AND HEALTHY. >> GREAT. THANK YOU. >> YOU’VE Come THE FINAL QUESTION. >> I COMMEND YOU ON THE ROOFTOP USAGE. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. VERY, VERY CLEAN, VERY NICETHANK YOU VERY MUCH. MY QUESTION WOULD BE, IN THE COMMUNITY CENTERAND RETAIL, WAS IT EVER THOUGHT OF THAT THE RETAIL WOULD BE ENTREPRENEURIAL PIECE FORTHE RESIDENTS? THAT THEY WOULD HAVE THAT THEMSELVES AS OPPOSEDTO YOU BRINGING IN OUTSIDE SOURCES AND JUST RENTING OUT TO THEM? >> SO WITH THE FOOD COOP, WE ACTUALLY GIVETHE RESIDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GROW THEIR OWN PRODUCE AND THEN SELL IT AT THE FOOD COOPITSELF. ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANTED TO DO WAS TO HAVESUSTAINABLE INITIATIVES THAT THE RESIDENTS THEMSELVES CAN BEGIN TO ADAPT. RATHER THAN LINING THE DEFENSIBLE SPACE OFTHEIR BACKYARDS WITH TRADITIONAL FENCING, WE DECIDE TODAY PROVIDE THEM WITH PALLET WALLSWHICH WOULD ENABLE THEM TO GROW THEIR OWN PRODUCE AS WELL AS USE THE EXISTING GARDENON SITE SO THEY CAN GET THE ENTREPRENEURIAL ASPECT AND SELL THAT NOT ONLY HAVE SUSTAINABLEAND HEALTHY FOOD BUT ALSO THINK ABOUT WAYS THEY CAN GENERATE INCOME FOR THEIR FAMILIES .>> THE FISH POND WAS VERY CLEVER. WHO STOCKS THAT? >> THAT Descends UNDER THE HEALTHY LIVING DIRECTORROLE? WE THOUGHT IT IT WAS Croaking TO BE TOO MESSYTO JUST HAVE EVERYBODY TAKE A HAND IN THAT BECAUSE YOU’RE DEALING WITH FISH. IT’S KIND OF A COMPLEX SYSTEM. THAT’S THEIR ROLE TO TAKE CARE OF THAT. >> WE Require TO THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL PRESENTATION. >> THANK YOU.[ APPLAUSE ]>>> WE’RE GOING TO LET THE JURY ADJUDICATE UNTIL 4:10. THE TEAMS ARE AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONSAT THEIR BOARDS, YOU CAN REMAIN AND ASK THEM. Thanks for coming AGAIN.( APPLAUSE) >> OKAY. PERFECT. GREAT. WE’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO GET STARTED. Thanks for coming FOR BEING SO PATIENT. Thanks for coming FOR A GREAT DAY. I’VE BEEN UP AND DOWN AND LISTENING TO PEOPLE. I’M KATHY O’REGAN, THE ASSISTANT DIRECTORFOR POLICY AND RESEARCH IN THE HUD BUILDING. I’VE HEARD THE BUZZING AND HAVE HAD PEOPLECOME BY AND SAY HOW AMAZING THE PRESENTATIONS HAVE BEEN.IT’S AMAZING WORK. I Reflect YOU SHOULD ALL BE PROUD OF YOURSELVESFOR REALLY TAKING ON A CHALLENGE IN A REAL WORLD CHALLENGE IN SUCH AN INNOVATIVE WAY. I Certainly DO NOT ENVY THE PANELISTS HERE TOMAKE THIS VERY TOUGH DECISION. I Exactly Crave TO TAKE A MOMENT FOR CONGRATULATINGALL THE STUDENTS FOR BEING IN THE TOP FOUR. THIS IS AN AMAZING FEAT. I’M GOING TO START OFF WITH A CONGRATULATIONSTO ALL OF YOU.[ APPLAUSE] AND SO MY MAIN JOB TODAY, I’VE BEEN THE ONE TO OPEN THE ENVELOPES AND CONGRATULATE IN THE PAST, BUT I’VE BEEN LUCKILYTRUMPED. SO I GET THE HONOR NOW OF INTRODUCING DEPUTYSECRETARY NANI COLERETI AND SHE’S GOING TO NAME IS WINNER. WHEN YOU PUT THAT AND YOU ALL GET TO TALKABOUT BEING IN THE TOP FOUR ON YOUR RESUME, IT’S GOING TO TAKE UP MORE THAN ONE LINE. AS THE SECOND MOST SENIOR OFFICIAL AT HUD, NANI MANAGES A $400 BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET. SHE Administers ABOUT8, 000 Hires. SHE CAME TO HUD WITH AN AMAZINGLY WIDE RANGEOF EXPERIENCE THAT’S REALLY RELEVANT TO THE WORK THAT SHE DOES. SHE Drove AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, SHE’S BEENTHERE BEFORE.SHE CAME TO US HAVING SPENT TWO YEARS AS THEASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR MANAGEMENT AT THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY AND SHE HAD ALSOWORKED AS A BUDGET ANALYST IN THE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET IN THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION. SHE’S Likewise Performed AT THE STILL LEVEL IN GOVERNMENT. SHE SPENT TEN YEARS IN CITY GOVERNMENT, INCLUDINGFOUR YEARS AS THE POLICY ADVISER AND BUDGET DIRECTOR FOR THE SANFRANCISCO GAVIN NEWSOME. SHE’S WORKED AT ALL LEVELS OF THE GOVERNMENTAND ACROSS SECTORS. BUT PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANTLY FOR TODAY’S CONTEXTIS THAT NANI IS A CHAMPION FOR DEVELOPING TALENT IN GOVERNMENT. HER PAST IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE OF DYNAMICISSUES AND MODES AND ROADS YOU CAN TAKE IN PUBLIC SERVICE. SHE’S THE TYPE OF FANTASTIC LEADERS AND THINKERSWE HAVE IN GOVERNMENT. I’M IN MY FORMER PROFESSOR HAT IN MY CURRENTFEDERAL ROLE TO SAYING TO THE STUDENTS IN THE ROOM, THINK ABOUT THAT. THINK ABOUT THAT. I KNOW YOU’RE FOCUSED AT OTHER THINGS RIGHTAT THE MOMENT. BUT AS YOU THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE, GOVERNMENTPUBLIC SERVICE SHOULD BE A PART OF MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE MISSION ORIENTED SHOULD SPEND SOMETIME IN PUBLIC GOVERNMENT SERVICE.YOU MIGHT GET BIT BY THE BUG AND SPEND A LOTOF TIME. WITH THAT IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND TO COMEBACK TO TOMORROW, PLEASE WELCOMING, JOIN ME IN WELCOMING NANI TO THE STAGE FOR THE AWARD.[ APPLAUSE ]>> THIS IS Most exciting. OH MY GOD. I’M SORRY I TRUMPED KATHY. SHE Questioned ME TO SWING BY THIS. I SAID, CAN I DO SOMETHING BIG? AND THEN SHE SAID SURE.ANYWAY, I’M NANI COLERETTI, THE DEPUTY SECRETARYHERE AT HUD. ON BEHALF OF SECRETARY CASTRO, I Require TO THANKYOU AGAIN FOR PARTICIPATING IN THIS EVENT. THIS IS JUST A REALLY COOL EVENT. I Suppose THIS IS THE THIRD ONE, THE FOURTHONE. The third largest ONE. I’VE JUST BEEN IMPRESSED WITH WHAT I HAVESEEN SO FAR. YOUR PRESENTATIONS, I DIDN’T GET TO SIT ANDSEE THEM, BUT I’VE HEARD ABOUT YOUR PROJECTS.I HEAR YOU’RE FOUR OF 39.

I KNOW THE JURY WHO I’M GOING TO THANK INTWO SECONDS BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN DOING A LOT OF HARD WORK HERE. YOU’RE FORCED TO MAKE THESE SELECTIONS, SOTHAT’S HARD.

IT’S A NATIONWIDE ISSUE.WHENEVER ANY OF US EVER GO OUT INTO THE FIELDAND LEAVE DC WHERE THERE’S ALREADY A HOUSING CRUNCH, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN Genuinely Accompany WHATTHE PROBLEMS ARE HERE. OUR PROGRAMS ONLY GET US SO FAR. SO I’M GLAD THAT WE’RE FOCUSING THIS ON EXPANDINGAFFORDABLE HOUSING OPTIONS FOR FAMILIES. I Is a well-known fact that SOME OF YOUR TEAMS VISITED THEHOUSING AUTHORITY IN SANTABARBARA, CALIFORNIA LAST MONTH. RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU WERE ON THE TEAM THATDID THAT. OH, COOL. AWESOME. AND YOU LEARNED THAT BECAUSE OF THE LOW VACANCYRATE AND A GROWING POPULATION, THIS Dearth OF HOUSING IS GROWING IN IMPORTANCE AND WILLCONTINUE TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON FAMILIES IN THE YEARS TO COME. SO WE AT HUD, WE WORK ON PROGRAMS THAT TRYTO MAKE IMPACT IN COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, BUT WE CAN’T DO IT ALONE.WE NEED CAPABLE PARTNERS THROUGHOUT THE INDUSTRY, AND WE NEED A CONSTANT STREAM OF NEW IDEAS, SUCH AS THOSE THAT YOU GUYS ARE DEVELOPINGTODAY. SO I KNOW THE FOUR TEAMS HAVE PRESENTED OUTSTANDING, FORWARDTHINKING PROPOSALS, INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS.
