Notice of Public Hearing

Notice is hereby Given to all interested persons, that:

This notice serves to inform citizens, in accordance with Texas Local Government Code §372.009, the City Council of Kyle will hold a public hearing beginning at 7:00 pm on August 17, 2016  at Kyle City Hall, 100 W. Center Street, Kyle, Texas 78640. The City of Kyle (the “City”) is considering the creation of the Pecan Woods Public Improvement District (“PID” or “District”) in the area commonly known as the Pecan Woods Master Plan Community. A map and detailed description of the property is located at Kyle City Hall.

General Nature of the Authorized Improvements.  The purposes of the District include the design,   acquisition,   and construction of public improvement   projects authorized by Section 372.003(b) of the Act that are necessary for development of the Property (collectively, the "Authorized Improvements").  The general nature of the proposed public improvements are: (i) the establishment of parks and open space, together with the design, construction and maintenance of any ancillary structures, features or amenities such as trails, pavilions, community facilities, irrigation, walkways, lighting, benches, swimming pools, trash receptacles and any similar items located therein; (ii) landscaping; (iii) acquisition, construction, and improvement of water, wastewater and drainage facilities; (iv) acquisition, construction and improvement of streets, roadways, rights-of-way and related facilities; (v) entry monumentation and features; (vi) signage; (vii) projects similar to those listed in subsections (i) – (vi) above; and (viii) payment of costs associated with constructing and financing the public improvements listed in subparagraphs (i) – (vii) above, including costs of establishing, administering and operating the District.  These Authorized Improvements shall promote the interests of the City and confer a special benefit on the Property.

Estimated Cost of the Authorized Improvements to be Funded by the District.  $60,000,000.00 (including issuance and other financing costs) (i.e. gross amount).

Proposed Method of Assessment.  An assessment methodology will be prepared that will address: (i) how the costs of the public improvements financed with the assessments are assessed against the property in the District, (ii) the assessments to be collected each year, and (iii) reduction of the assessments for costs savings (pursuant to the annual review of the service plan for the District).  Additionally, a report will be prepared showing the special benefits accruing to property in the District and how the costs of the public improvements are assessed to property on the basis of the special benefits.  The result will be that equal shares of the costs will be imposed on property similarly benefited.

The assessment methodology will result in each parcel paying its fair share of the costs of the public improvements provided with the assessments based on the special benefits received by the property from the public improvements and property equally situated paying equal shares of the costs of the public improvements. It is anticipated that assessments will be based on estimated build out values.

Apportionment of the Cost Between District and the City.  The City shall not be obligated to provide any funds to finance the Authorized Improvements.  The cost of the Authorized improvements will be paid from the assessments and from other sources of funds, if any, available to the Owner.

A copy of the Pecan Woods PID petition is available for public review at the office of the City Secretary, located at 100 W. Center Street, Kyle, Texas 78640.  Persons wishing to speak for or against the establishment of the PID should contact the City Manager at 512-262-3923.
