IRVING NAMED A PLATINUM-LEVEL LEADER The City of Irving has been recognized for its excellence in fiscal transparency by the Texas Comptroller’s Leadership Circle, a program that recognizes local Texas governments and school districts that strive to meet the highest standards for financial transparency online. Platinum-level designees are models for other cities to follow, according to the Leadership Circle.

Potential Development Rendering

Residents’ Suggestions Guide Diamond Interchange Nestled in the heart of the Metroplex and directly accessible by three major highways, Irving owns a prime piece of property, ripe for development. The 78-acres of city-owned property located at State Highway 114, State Highway Loop 12 and State Highway 183 may not look like much now, but the City of Irving and national developers know its value and potential. That was the reason for hosting two public input sessions earlier this year, which allowed residents to provide feedback on proposed plans for the site’s future development. More than 110 residents attended the sessions to hear presentations from OliverMcMillan representatives, the national development firm working with the city. OliverMcMillan is now collaborating with a team of consultants to take the community’s feedback and finalize a site program that includes building retail, residential, office, hotel and community spaces. OliverMcMillan also plans to work with local construction and engineering consultants to create a budget that fully supports the project while keeping good financial stewardship in mind. “We are pleased that Irving residents took the time to attend our public input sessions,” said Mayor Pro Tem Gerald Farris. “Our citizens have a seat at the table and we appreciate the time they gave to help make this future project successful and beneficial for the community.”

The city has been working with OliverMcMillan since January to determine potential development ideas for the site. City leaders and staff said the goal is to make the area a place where Irving residents can live, work and shop. During the public input meetings, representatives with OliverMcMillan showed various design proposals. The plans presented were selected from ideas originally pitched to OliverMcMillan and city representatives in February. Irving city staff, members of city council and key stakeholders were among more than 70 people who participated in a two-day planning session, led by OliverMcMillan. The site is under contract with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) until 2019, although the city can be released from the contract before it expires. TxDOT is using the area as a staging area to support construction on the nearby highway projects in an effort to accelerate the construction process. OliverMcMillan is known for creating high-quality, mixed use developments that include retail, lofts and office space. Company executives said they hope to finalize a development agreement this July, and if that occurs, a grand opening could be possible as early as 2017. n

Stage 3 Water Restrictions Continue Stage 3 Water Restrictions are still in effect. Residential watering guidelines are featured on Page 2.

To be recognized by the program, municipalities and school districts must meet criteria in four major categories. The criteria include having an adopted budget for FY 2013-14, a current annual financial report, a current check/expense register and a transparency page online. Residents can access that financial information online, at cityofirving.org/budget. Irving also meets several other minor criteria, such as listing its budgets for the past three fiscal years on its website and offering a visual representation of financial data. The combination of both major and minor criteria helped Irving attain the highest honor. “This award is a testament to the priorities and focus on responsible fiscal management by the City of Irving,” said Tom Spink, chairman to Irving’s Audit and Finance Committee. “The city is highly committed to ensuring financial transparency with our community. We understand that as stewards of taxpayers’ dollars, it is imperative we provide an open channel for residents to see how the city is managing money.” The Leadership Circle was launched in 2009 as a way to recognize cities and school districts in the state that make their financial records available to the public, provide clear information about how they spend tax dollars, and share detailed information in an easy-to-read format. For the past four years, Irving had been recognized by the Comptroller’s office at the Gold designation, previously the highest level of recognition offered by the Leadership Circle. n

Fight the Bite

Residents Reminded of Disability Parking Regulations

Warm weather means more time outside and more exposure to mosquitoes. Irving residents are reminded to defend themselves against West Nile Virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses by following the “Four Ds.” Dusk/Dawn – the times of day to stay indoors. Dress – wear long sleeves and long pants when outdoors during these times. DEET – an ingredient to look for when purchasing and using insect repellent. Drain – minimize outside standing water so it does not become a mosquito breeding site. The chance of a person becoming ill from a mosquito bite is low, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says prevention is the best bet. People most at risk are children and adults 50 years of age and older. Report issues to the Vector Control Hotline at (972) 721-3755. For more information, visit irvingfightsthebite.org. n

The Irving Police Department wants to remind motorists of parking regulations regarding marked disability parking spaces. Violations can result in fines of up to $515. It is illegal to park vehicles: u  In a disability parking space without displaying
