Happening

Authority: Pursuant to Section 3.05 of the City Charter of the City of Missouri City, the mayor of the city shall appoint special committees as he deems advisable. 

Objectives: Pursuant to said authority and in accordance with City of Missouri City Strategic Goals 1 (create a great place to live), 3 (grow business investments in Missouri City), and 5 (have quality development through buildout), Mayor Robin J. Elackatt (the “Mayor”) has deemed it advisable to appoint a special committee to review certain proposals and provide input relating to the development and redevelopment of the Texas Parkway (Farm to Market Road 2234) and Cartwright Road (Farm to Market Road 3345) Corridor (the “TP/C Corridor”). For the purposes of this special committee, the TP/C Corridor consists of the Missouri City portion of Texas Parkway from U.S. Highway 90 to the eastern city limit line (located near the intersection of Texas Parkway and Turtle Creek Drive) and Cartwright Road from the intersection of Texas Parkway and Cartwright Road to the intersection of Cartwright Road and Farm to Dulles. The committee will be staffed by the City Manager or his designee, the City’s Economic Development Department, and an attorney from the City Attorney’s Office. 

Qualifications: The volunteer TP/C Corridor Development Advisory Committee will be appointed by the Mayor and will consist of nine (9) voting members, including two (2) councilmembers, one of whom shall be selected by the Mayor to serve as the chair of the committee. The remaining seven (7) voting positions on the committee are open to non-elected Missouri City residents. The committee may select its own vice-chair, who shall be a resident member of the committee. The chair of the Missouri City Planning and Zoning Commission will serve as a non-voting ad hoc member of the committee. To serve as a resident member of the committee, a person must meet the following minimum requirements: 

  1. be a resident of Missouri City; 
  2. be over 18 years of age; 
  3. be willing to sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement relating to proposals presented to the committee; 
  4. may not be currently serving on a Missouri City tax increment reinvestment zone board; 
  5. may not be related, in any degree, to a member of the City Council of Missouri City or to a member of a Missouri City tax increment reinvestment zone board; 
  6. may not be the recipient of, or, within two years after appointment, seek to receive public funding from, the City of Missouri City in the form of an economic development incentive or any manner substantially similar to such incentive; and 
  7. may not have held a public office within the preceding one year (i.e. calendar year 2020). 

Appointment Process: To apply to serve on the committee, an individual must submit an application and a resume to Missouri City by February 12, 2021. The Mayor may waive an applicant’s failure to submit a resume. By submitting an application, each applicant attests to the applicant’s eligibility. An application will not be considered and an appointed individual may be removed from the committee if the individual is later found to be ineligible. Additionally, providing false or misleading information in an application to serve on the committee will serve as grounds for removal after appointment. Certain applicants may be interviewed by the Mayor and councilmembers appointed to serve on the committee between February 15, 2021, and February 26, 2021. This committee is not subject to confirmation or concurrence by the City Council. The Mayor will announce appointments to the TP/C Corridor Development Advisory Committee on or about March 1, 2021. 

Term and Meetings: Each appointee will serve a two (2)-year term, beginning on March 1, 2021, and ending on the earlier of March 1, 2023, or the date on which such appointment is terminated by the Mayor. Meetings of the committee may be scheduled on a monthly basis.
