Meeting Date: 12/10/2015  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon appointments to the Development Standards Committee;
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no fiscal impact related to the appointments.
BACKGROUND:
Seven appointments are made annually to the Development Standards Committee (DSC), three of which are designated by The Woodlands Development Company. The procedures for soliciting the four Township appointed candidates to the DSC included advertising for candidates in the local newspaper and advising current Residential Design Review Committees (RDRC) and Development Standards Committee (DSC) Members. These procedures have been followed by placing ads in the Villager and by advising the RDRC and DSC members of the appointments during each of the monthly individual meetings. The solicitation was also posted on the Township website. The deadline for submitting applications was November 25 by 5 p.m. The Woodlands Township received six (6) applications and these are provided to the Board for consideration (Attachment A). Applications have been screened for qualifications and credentials by the Covenant Administration Department, which has been summarized in “Summary of DSC Candidates” (Attachment B). The candidates have been invited to the Board meeting to answer any questions the Board may have of the candidates.

At the December 10 meeting, once the Board has had an opportunity to speak to the candidates in attendance, the Township Board will select four of these persons by written ballot for appointment to the DSC. Applicant names will be listed in alphabetical order. In order to be selected to serve on the DSC, the candidate must receive a majority of Board Member votes (four). In the event that four candidates do not receive the required number of votes on the initial ballot, those who received four votes will be appointed and the process will be repeated until all four candidates are appointed. During this repeat vote, the names of those who received the required votes will be omitted and Directors will only vote for the number of positions remaining (For example: If two candidates receive 4 votes each on the initial ballot, those two will be appointed and Directors will be provided a new ballot on which to vote for two out of the remaining candidates.)

The Covenants require at least five members of the committee of seven to have experience in architecture, engineering, contracting, building code enforcement or related fields (“Professional Credentials”).

Per the terms of the Comprehensive Community Services Agreement / Amended and Restated Agreement with Regard to Delegation of Covenant Responsibilities,  The Woodlands Land Development Company, L.P. (TWLDC) has designated its three members for the Township to approve  reappointments (Attachment C). These three candidates have experience in architecture, engineering, contracting, building code enforcement or related fields. Therefore at least two of the Township’s designated appointees must also have the prescribed professional credentials.

 
RECOMMENDATION:
Appoint four members from the applications received and approve the reappointments of the three candidates selected by The Woodlands Land Development Company to the Development Standards Committee for one year terms beginning January 1, 2016, or until successors are assigned.
