WHAT IS the UTB 21sT CENTURY UNIVERSITY?

The City of Brownsville sees the UTB 21st century university as one of national and international prestige, sitting at the crossroads of two vibrant cultures, at the heart of a City embracing its history. Such a university is intent on setting the pace for innovation in America. This vision recognizes that the location of a 21st century university will impact its character and ability to provide the highest educational opportunities to a student body that is continually becoming more culturally, ethnically, and socioeconomically diverse. The Board of Regents of the University of Texas System seeks a site to develop a new UTB 21st century campus in Brownsville. The City of Brownsville proposes greater downtown Brownsville as the location where: [1] A place where synergies exist to positively shape the multi-faceted student experience. [2] A place where new development leverages existing UTB physical assets. [3] A place where flexibility enables the new 21st century education model.

Greater Downtown Brownsville

HOw CAN UTB Create the synergies needed to positively shape the multi-faceted student experience?

The City of Brownsville firmly believes that the ideal location for UTB is in the greater downtown area where mutually beneficial synergies between existing community assets and the University will enhance the UTB campus. These synergies positively affect the student body’s educational experience in the following areas: (1) accessibility, (2) cultural, historic, and community exposure, and (3) work opportunities.

Accessibility The majority of existing UTB students and staff reside in the greater downtown area. Maintaining close poximity to the UTB student body will continue to minimize overall student commute times and associated burdens.

UTB Existing Student Addresses Downtown’s newly opened La Plaza Terminal is the regional multi-modal hub that connects city wide bus, bicycle and pedestrian routes. This provides safe and affordable options for regional and local commuters and links riders to work and play destinations. The terminals location at the edge of UTB’s existing campus is optimal for student and staff.

Brownsville Metro services the greater downtown area at a frequency of one bus every ten minutes, greatly exceeding service in outlying areas where buses run once every sixty minutes. Bus service is currently free to UTB students and faculty. Brownsville is committed to alternative transportation modes and already boasts two dedicated hike bike trails with several more in the planning stages, including one that will directly service UTB’s existing campus.

Expressway 77/83 is a major arterial that connects UTB’s existing campus to surrounding communities optimizing student and staff connectivity. 4


Cultural, Historic, and Community Exposure Downtown’s location on an international border offers a unique opportunity for the study of foreign culture, languages, and international business practices. The Mitte Cultural District located in the greater downtown area contains rich cultural experiences. District anchors include the Gladys Porter Zoo with more than 1500 animals including the last known Jentink’s Kunker in captivity, the Brownsville Museum of Fine Arts with ongoing programming including international lectures, and the Costumes of Americas Museum housing one of the largest preserved historical textile and garment collections in the Americas.

Downtown Brownsville has over 50 historic landmark buildings, several of these sit ready with enormous potential to be utilized for multiple academic purposes.

Work Opportunities Access to internships, work-study programs, business incubators, and post-graduate jobs are crucial to the success of university students. Over 5,500 jobs exist within a one mile radius and 44,700 jobs exist within a five mile radius of the Downtown Core.

How can UTB build upon its existing physical assets?

The University of Texas at Brownsville was founded in the greater downtown area and has had a strong relationship with the City for the past 20 years. In that time it has developed substantial assets in both physical investments as well as valuable relationships. The UT system has invested over $120,000,000 in University assets. These assets, which include buildings, land, and infrastructure, can be utilized in continuing the tradition of a great campus by locating the permanent campus in greater downtown Brownsville.

EXISTING Buildings Biomedical Research and Health Professions Building is 58,588 SF and contains 21 special class labs, 6 class labs, and 3 classrooms. It houses the Center for Biomedical Studies which largely focuses on diabetes, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease, which disproportionately affect the population of South Texas and Northern Mexico. It also houses the university’s growing Nursing Department. Education and Business Complex is 127,000 SF and contains 7 special class labs, 2 class labs, and 7 classrooms. Life and Health Sciences is 103,760 SF and contains 16 special class labs, 2 class labs, and 5 classrooms The building won the AIA Honor Design award in 2001 for its contemporary design that celebrates a traditional form. Science Engineering and Technology in 145,039 SF and 27 special class labs, 2 class labs, and 5 classrooms. Casa Bella on-campus residential housing is a student dormitory with more than 400 beds. The building provides a variety of amenities, such as full kitchens, washers and dryers, living rooms and all of the electrical and wireless needs desired by college students today. The property has a swimming pool, sand volleyball and basketball courts, as well as a club house with a movie theater, computer lab and a large multipurpose room.

Casa Bella on-campus UTB residential housing

EXISTING Land The University currently owns approximately 110 acres of raw land just east of its current campus. Water, electrical, and natural gas utilities infrastructure and capacity are currently available for University growth. Available adjacent land allows for contiguous growth of the existing campus. Major thoroughfares currently provide connectivity between the UTB buildings, raw land, and greater downtown Brownsville. 6


A3

How can UTB DEVELOP A CAMPUS FOR A 21ST CENTURY MODEL?

The UT System has begun the task of visioning what a 21st century campus will look like. This campus will evolve long after a location is chosen. The City of Brownsville proposes a response including raw land with existing infrastructure, buildings improved or ready for improvements, and development flexibility for campus growth. This proposal allows for a degree of flexibility as the University endeavors to define the 21st century campus.

Developable Land With more than 300 total acres, the University will have the space needed to grow incrementally without fear of being landlocked in the future. While the permanent proposal provides substantial raw land, its location within the greater downtown alleviates both the financial and time consuming burden of bringing utilities to the land.

Developable Buildings The available stock of early 20th century traditional urban buildings in downtown presents the opportunity to build a new campus identity in the heart of downtown. The Hotel El Jardin is available for lease or purchase, providing UTB the opportuinty to brand a piece of downtown’s skyline.

Providing Options The flexibility provided in this proposal creates the ability to turn interim downtown leases into a permanent downtown campus. The proposal and existing campus are located within the greater downtown area which has both vertical and horizontal design elements. The University has the option to emulate the character of the vibrant core along Elizabeth Street and build 4 and 5 story buildings. Opposite of that, the University may choose a more horizontal identity such as the La Plaza Terminal or Putegnat Elementary. The flexibility provided in this proposal creates the ability to expand the current UTB campus through contiguous land into downtown, or out to the undeveloped eastern area.

Metro Brownsville Bus Routes La Plaza Terminal University Blvd. Corridor

The City’s proposal is located on the University Boulevard transportation corridor, an arterial road that will provide bike lanes and frequent bus service, strengthening its linkage to the existing campus and downtown core. University Boulevard is a tree lined street that provides a linear connection from the downtown core through the existing campus and on to the permanent proposed site. Existing campus and neighborhood development has created an integrated grid system highly utilized by cars, bikes, and pedestrians that stems off of University and International Boulevard. U.S Expressway 77/83 directly connects Brownsville to surrounding county, state, and international cities, minimizing student and faculty commute times for those who reside outside Brownsville’s city limits. The University and the City have developed a relationship through Metro Brownsville to provided free bus fare for students and staff of the University. With more than half of students living within 5 miles of the University the free bus service provides guaranteed mobility access to a majority of students 19


and staff. All City buses arrive at the La Plaza Terminal centrally located in downtown. Currently two bus routes are dedicated to serving the University with plans to expand City buses to the permanent proposed site along with the understanding that additional bus coverage would be dedicated to serving a future campus that stays within the greater downtown area.

2.2.5

A DESCRIPTION AND IDENTIFICATION OF EXISTING UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE AND CAPACITY, AND THE FEASIBILITY AND TIMING OF EXTENSION OF WATER, WASTEWATER, ELECTRIC, NATURAL GAS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND OTHER UTILITY SERVICES TO THE SITE. Reference Exhibit 2.2.5 All tracts are fully serviced by city utilities, including electricity, water, natural gas, and sanitary sewer. Sites are directly accessible via paved street connections including curbs and gutters along University Boulevard. The greater downtown area has an existing capacity able to meet and exceed future development of the University Campus in the proposed location.

2.2.6

A DESCRIPTION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL CHARACTERISTICS AND TOPOGRAPHY OF THE SITE, THE SITE’S PROXIMITY TO THE 100-YEAR FLOODPLAIN, AND ANY KNOWN ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION, UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS, WETLANDS, ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES, AND PRESENCE OF ENDANGERED SPECIES OR SPECIES BEING CONSIDERED FOR LISTING AS BEING ENDANGERED. Reference Exhibit 2.2.6 All tracts are located entirely within FEMA flood Zone “C,” indicating that the land is in a minimal flood hazard area outside the Special Flood Hazard Area with less than 0.2-percent-annual-chance of (500year) flooding. Further investigation is necessary to determine whether or not proposed sites contain environmental contamination, underground storage tanks, wetlands, or endangered species. Tracts G and H both lie within the 14.67 acre tract known as the Motor Transport Area of what was formerly known as the Fort Brown Military Reservations, in the Espiritu Sando Grant in Cameron, County , Texas. Both sites have historic connections to Fort Brown, further investigation is necessary to determine if these sites contain archeological artifacts of interest.

2.2.7

A DESCRIPTION OF THE SITE’S ATTRIBUTES WITH RESPECT TO SAFETY, SECURITY, AND MOBILITY OF THE STUDENTS, AND THE SITE’S CONNECTIVITY, IF APPLICABLE, TO EXISTING FACILITIES HELD BY THE BOARD.

Safety and Security The proposed permanent site’s geography is similar to the existing UTB campus which has provided a high level of safety in the past. In fact, a 2011 comparison of the UTB area with other portions of town to the west and north shows a significantly lower number of assaults, burglaries, thefts, etc. in the UTB area. Concern from University Board of Regents has been voiced over the escalation in Mexican border town violence and the effect it will have on a University that sits along the border. The current UTB campus already sits adjacent to the US Border Wall. Chief of Police for the University, Chief Cardoza, has stated that border violence has little impact on the daily safety of campus life; however, security measures are in place should safety become an issue in the future. Chief Orlando Rodriguez from the Brownsville Police Department has stated that the Brownsville area is not currently experiencing border spillover violence as is sometimes reported in state and national media. Rodriguez also noted that the high concentration of law enforcement officers along the actual border itself makes the downtown area one of, if not the safest parts of the City of Brownsville. With the permanent proposed site located adjacent to existing UTB facilities, including currently owned UTB land, security measures that are 20


already in place may be expanded to new campus areas to adequately provide a high quality of safety throughout. Examples of existing security methods in place on the current UTB campus that can easily be expanded to include the permanent site, currently owned UTB land, security measures that are already in place may be expanded to new campus areas to adequately provide a high quality of safety throughout. Examples of existing security methods in place on the current UTB campus that can easily be expanded to include the permanent site are: - Operation Identification - Crime Prevention Lectures - Campus Crime Prevention Information - New Students and Employees Police Service Orientation - Emergency Blue Light Phones - Security Surveys - Security Cameras - Safety Campus Escorts - Motorist Assistance - Upgraded Security Lighting - Patrols

Mobility and Connectivity Reference Section 2.2.4 The permanent site provides many points of access to students and staff as the parcels are contiguous to each other and the existing campus. The form of the built environment, not the geography or topography of the site, will significantly dictate the ability to walk, bike, or drive easily between campus locations. One point of concern is the ability of students and staff to safely cross under Expressway 77. The height of the expressway allows for enough room to easily create a safe path for pedestrian travel.

2.2.8

A STATEMENT THAT THE RESPONDENT OWNS THE MINERAL ESTATE AND WILL CONVEY THE MINERAL AND SURFACE ESTATES TO THE BOARD. OR, IN THE ALTERNATIVE, A STATEMENT THAT (1) THE RESPONDENT EITHER DOES NOT OWN OR WILL NOT CONVEY THE MINERAL ESTATE TO THE BOARD, (2) THERE ARE NO LEASES OF THE MINERALS, AND (3) THE RESPONDENT WILL DELIVER TO THE BOARD AT CLOSING A SURFACE WAIVER IN THE FORM APPROVED BY THE OFFICE OF GENERAL COUNSEL OF U. T. SYSTEM AND BY WHICH THE MINERAL ESTATE OWNER(S) RELEASE AND WAIVE, ON BEHALF OF THE OWNER(S) AND THE OWNER(S)’ SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS, ALL RIGHTS TO USE, ENTER UPON, OR OCCUPY ANY PORTION OF THE SURFACE OF THE PROPERTY, OR PLACE ANY FIXTURES, EQUIPMENT, BUILDINGS, OR STRUCTURES ON THE PROPERTY IN CONDUCTING OPERATIONS OR OTHER ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE OWNERSHIP OF THE OIL, GAS, AND OTHER MINERAL INTERESTS IN THE PROPERTY; THE SURFACE WAIVER WILL ALLOW EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT WITH WELLS DRILLED ON THE SURFACE OF LANDS OTHER THAN THE PROPERTY, BUT WILL SPECIFICALLY REQUIRE THAT ALL SUCH DRILLING BE AT A DEPTH OF AT LEAST 500 FEET BENEATH THE SURFACE OF THE PROPERTY AND THAT OPERATIONS BENEATH THE SURFACE OF THE PROPERTY DO NOT AFFECT THE SURFACE ESTATE. To the extent the property owners of Tract A - H own their mineral rights, mineral estates will be conveyed to the The Board of Regents of the University of Texas System in connection with the conveyance of fee title to such properties.

2.2.12

A DESCRIPTION OF THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS AND OF NEARBY RECREATIONAL AND OPEN SPACES.

Surrounding Neighborhoods The proposed tracts are located adjacent to the bordering neighborhoods of Southmost (to the northeast) and Texas Southmost College (to the immediate west). Southmost is a six square mile residential neighborhood with a population of 33,800. The population density of Southmost is 5,769 people per square mile, nearly twice that of Brownsville. Southmost boasts several community amenities including the Brownsville Public Library, Reynaldo Elementary School, a place of worship, health center, and neighborhood meeting hall. Neighborhood streets have a comfortable pedestrian scale of one to two story homes embedded in a well vegetated landscape. Proximity to UTB will increase student and faculty housing options and potentially provide experiential learning opportunities within the community. Texas Southmost College is a community college that graduates many students into the UT System. UTB’s proximity to TSC creates a mutually beneficial relationship in which both schools benefit from increased student enrollment and academic preparedness.

Open Space The area is fortunate to be surrounded by several natural assets including Sabal Palm Sanctuary, a top birding preserve with more than 5 miles of wildlife trails, Antonio Gonzales Park, a recreational park with pool, ball fields and playgrounds, and several Wildlife Management Areas scattered in either direction along the U.S./Mexico border.

2.2.13

IF AVAILABLE, PROPOSED SITE PLANS FOR THE SITE, WHICH MAY INCLUDE COMPATIBILITY OR BUFFERING WITH SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS; APPROPRIATE USE, PRESERVATION AND ENHANCEMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES; TRANSPORTATION/MOBILITY PLANS OFF-SITE AND ON-SITE; AND UTILITIES INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN.

2.3.3

A DESCRIPTION OF THE SITE’S ATTRIBUTES WITH RESPECT TO SAFETY, SECURITY, AND MOBILITY OF THE STUDENTS, AND THE SITE’S CONNECTIVITY, IF APPLICABLE, TO EXISTING FACILITIES HELD BY THE BOARD.

Safety and Security The proposed interim campus is within the downtown core of the City, which is directly across International Boulevard from the University. This area has a high safety level. In fact, a 2011 comparison of the UTB area with other portions of town to the west and north shows a significantly lower number of assaults, burglaries, thefts, etc. in the UTB area. Concern from University Board of Regents has been voiced over the escalation in Mexican border town violence and the effect it will have on a University that sits along the border. The current UTB campus already sits adjacent to the US Border Wall. Chief of Police for the University, Chief Cardoza, has stated that border violence has little impact on the daily safety of campus life; however, security measures are in place should safety become an issue in the future. Chief Orlando Rodriguez from the Brownsville Police Department has stated that the Brownsville area is not currently experiencing border spillover violence as is sometimes reported in state and national media. Rodriguez also noted that the high concentration of law enforcement officers along the actual border itself makes the downtown area one of, if not the safest parts of the City of Brownsville. With the interim sites proposed near existing UTB facilities, security measures that are already in place may be expanded to the interim campus to adequately provide a high quality of safety throughout. Examples of existing security methods in place on the current UTB campus that can easily be expanded to include the interim site are: - Operation Identification - Crime Prevention Lectures - Campus Crime Prevention Information - New Students and Employees Police Service Orientation - Emergency Blue Light Phones - Security Surveys - Security Cameras - Safety Campus Escorts - Motorist Assistance - Upgraded Security Lighting - Patrols - Identified pedestrian/student paths - Security Officers and information officers for individual buildings

Mobility and Connectivity Reference Section 2.3.9 The Downtown interim campus sites provide connectivity to the existing campus through pedestrian routes, bike lanes, and a frequent bus circulator for the campus. With the proximity of the interim sites being as close as some campus buildings are to each other, the interim proposal is closer to an expansion of the existing campus than providing a second satellite campus.

2.3.4

DOCUMENTATION EVIDENCING THAT THE IMPROVEMENTS ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE TEXAS ACCESSIBILITY STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS AND THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. Not available at this time. To the extent that City owned properties numbered 1 - 6 do not comply with current accessibility standards the City will negotiate necessary improvements with the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System to comply with Texas Accessibility Standards and Specifications and with the Americans with Disabilities Act, pending UT’s acceptance of this proposal.

2.3.5

DETAILS ON ALL STRUCTURAL AND MECHANICAL SYSTEMS, TO INCLUDE YEAR CONSTRUCTED OR INSTALLED AND CURRENT MAINTENANCE INFORMATION. Not available at this time. To the extent that City owned properties numbered 1 - 6 require structural and/or mechanical system maintenance or replacement, the City will negotiate necessary improvements with the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System to meet 2009 International Building Code standards and UT System construction protocol, pending UT’s acceptance of this proposal.

2.3.6

The University and the City have developed a relationship between Metro Brownsville to provided free bus fare for students and staff. With more than half of the students living within 5 miles of the university the free bus service provides guaranteed mobility access to a majority of students and staff. Currently two bus routes are dedicated to serving the University. Reference map on the following page.

2.3.13

A DESCRIPTION OF THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS AND OF NEARBY RECREATIONAL AND OPEN SPACES. The proposed interim site is located in the historic downtown core of Brownsville. This site is adjacent to the Mitte Cultural District to the north, Buena Vida Neighborhood to the north east, the exiting UTB/ TSC campus to the south, and the ITEC and Amigoland area to the west. The Mitte Cultural District is a mix of residential, commercial, and institutional buildings. This neighborhood includes: - The Gladys Porter Zoo which holds nearly 1600 animals including the only known Jentink’s Duiker in capacity - Brownsville Museum of Fine Art which continuosly sponsors international lectures - Costumes of Americas Museum which houses one of the largest preserved historical textile and garment collections in the Americas. The Mitte Cultural District contains: - Washington Park where the Charro Days Festival is centered and Symphony in the Park is held - Dean Porter Park along the Town Resaca that provides a public pool and many art filled playgrounds - Linear Park which hosts the weekly farmers market and is the starting part of the battlefield trail hike and bike path Buena Vida residential neighborhood of approximately 8,000 is the original townsite of the City of Brownsville. In addition to residential housing stock, Buena Vida is an important government core containing county assets including the county administration buildings, county courthouse and federal courthouse, and The Brownsville Herald the local newspaper. Additional institutions are also located in the area including a historic cathedral, two elementary schools, and a multitude of social service agencies. 38


To the west is the existing ITEC educational facility which is the International Technology, Education and Commerce center. Here business and education can meet and work together providing training with students and the ability for creative industries to test new methods. Beyond ITEC are large undeveloped tracts along with land recently added to the Cities list of growing open space.

E 2.4.0

RFP RESPONSE 2.4.0 SYNERGIES AND EFFICIENCIES OF THE PROPOSED SITES The enumerated items below contain information that is fully responsive to the synergies and efficiencies proposal requirements as dictated in Section 2.4 of RFP No. REO 09-04-2012 BOR.

2.4.1

REGARDLESS OF WHETHER A RESPONDENT SUBMITS A PROPOSAL FOR A PERMANENT SITE, AN INTERIM SITE, OR BOTH, THE PROPOSAL MUST CONTAIN A STATEMENT OF THE EFFICIENCIES AND SYNERGIES BETWEEN THE RESPONDENT’S PROPOSED INTERIM AND/OR PERMANENT SITE(S) AND THE BOARD’S EXISTING FACILITIES, INCLUDING, SPECIFICALLY BUT WITHOUT LIMITATION, HOW THE PROPOSED SITE(S) ASSIST THE BOARD IN MAKING AN EFFICIENT TRANSITION TO THE FUTURE PERMANENT CAMPUS OF UTB.

Permanent Campus

The proposed permanent campus is contiguous with the existing campus and therefore does not force a physical displacement of staff or students in transition. Proximity of the proposed permanent campus to the existing campus allows for complete utilization of existing assets without dividing student population or removing administration staff from the campus entirely. This allows for both campuses to share resources in mass transit, police patrols, physical plants, and eliminates the redundancy in staffing and amenities.

Interim Campus

The proposed interim campus is located across International Boulevard in the downtown core. The proximity of the interim campus to the existing campus makes a high level of connectivity available for pedestrians, cyclist, drivers, and free bus transit that arrives on 10 minute intervals. This allows for both campuses to share resources in mass transit, police patrols, physical plants, and eliminates the redundancy in staffing and amenities.

2.4.2

IF THE RESPONDENT SUBMITS A PROPOSAL FOR BOTH AN INTERIM SITE AND A PERMANENT SITE, THEN, IN ADDITION TO THE INFORMATION REQUIRED IN SECTION 2.4.1, THE PROPOSAL MUST ALSO CONTAIN A STATEMENT OF THE EFFICIENCIES AND SYNERGIES BETWEEN THE RESPONDENT’S PROPOSED INTERIM AND PERMANENT SITES. The interim proposal and the permanent proposals are both connected to the existing campus, but are on opposite ends. When both are functioning, the ability to move from one to the other is solved by the existing UTB circulator bus and the University Boulevard corridor where additional bus routes and bike lanes are soon to be on the ground. Placing the two proposals on either side of the existing campus allows for the smallest physical distance in transition across campus.

Exhibit 2.5.1: Tract C Expression of Interest From: Bryan_Winton@fws.gov [mailto:Bryan_Winton@fws.gov] Sent: Wednesday, July 25, 2012 4:41 PM To: Ramiro Gonzalez Cc: Robert_Jess@fws.gov; John_Wallace@fws.gov; Chris_Perez@fws.gov; Ernesto_Reyes@fws.gov; Larisa_Ford@fws.gov; Pat_Clements@fws.gov Subject: Refuge Lands Identified for Exchange in City of Brownsville city limits

Mr. Gonzalez: I had an opportunity to visit with both Project Leader Robert Jess and Deputy Project Leader John Wallace this morning about our interest on the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge (LRGV NWR) in identifying refuge lands that have been encroached upon/affected by City of Brownsville population growth/development projects and/or from increased illegal activities from Matamoros, MX and subsequent but necessary Border Patrol activities which have resulted in excessive vehicle- and human-related disturbances, particularly during night-time hours. Because the refuge was established to protect and provide habitat for nocturnal (night-dwelling) mammals like the endangered ocelot and jaguarundi, and nesting migratory birds of a variety of species, and wildlife in general, the encroachment, illegal activities and ongoing surveillance has degraded the benefits of these lands for purposes of wildlife protection and conservation. Therefore, the South Texas Refuge Complex is particularly interested in working with Cameron County, City of Brownsville, the Public Utilities Board, and TxDOT (or collectively) for purposes of developing a land exchange "package" that would afford the refuge an opportunity to divulge itself from interests in refuge lands south of the City of Brownsville where conservation objectives are constantly challenged or can no longer be met, in exchange for lands outside the COB city limits in areas where conservation objectives are still viable and/or possible. This would most likely be west or northwest of town enabling the LRGV NWR to link important habitats to the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, or east of town increasing our land holdings in the Boca Chica/HW 4 area along the Rio Grande. If agreeable, the refuge would work closely with all parties involved to identify suitable lands for exchange outside the COB. I am in the process of developing a more comprehensive letter explaining how we (US Fish & Wildlife Service) must or wish to proceed. Because a land exchange must meet US Fish & Wildlife Service standards, we are currently in the process of verifying whether an exchange would also require that any new lands added (or exchanged) to the National Wildlife Refuge System must be appraised using the Yellow Book Appraisal Standards. There are other land acquisitions protocols/measures that will likely also need to be followed closely, to include exchanging properties value for value not necessarily acre for acre. Regardless, the refuge will need to demonstrate conservation benefits by the exchange and an increase in acreage for the refuge when the deal is done is also often necessary to facilitate completing the exchange process and satisfying agency leadership that it was a US Fish & Wildlife Service benefit. The letter I am preparing will explain the desirable process in better detail. In short, the refuge owns or manages under long-term agreement the following properties that we wish to exchange as part of this "package" (total acreage is 921.29 acres) 1.

Phillips Banco Tract [FEE OWNED] (south of Military Highway about 5 blocks east of Alton Gloor Blvd) - 336.15 acres/most north of IBWC levee

- NOTE: City of Brownsville has a ROW agreement with USFWS for use of the site to manage/operate 2 Stormwater Treatement Facilities Also, Public Utilities Board has expressed significant interest in this refuge tract for water storage purposes since the Brownsville Weir Project failed. 2.

Palo Blanco Tract [FEE OWNED] (south of Military Highway about 1 block east otherwise due south of Alton Gloor Blvd) - 30.02 acres/most south of IBWC levee

-NOTE: Area has high illegal human activity due to dense vegetation and has resulted in nearly 1-2 miles of roads/trails being established on this 30-acre tract 3.

Brownsville Tract [FEE OWNED] (immediately west of Los Tomates Bridge) - 17.4 acres/most north of IBWC levee

-NOTE: This refuge tract was part of a negotiation with COB during the construction of Los Tomates Bridge construction in 1999-2000. In exchange for loss of acreage and habitat/disturbance impacts associated with bridge construction and now human activity, the COB made an additional land management commitments to USFWS (see Item #4.) 4.

City of Brownsville deed reservation for Los Tomates Bridge Project [MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT] - 167.6 acres/most south of IBWC levee

-NOTE: The official transfer of the USFWS Brownsville Tract and the ultimate transfer of land from COB to USFWS has never occurred. Since 1993 when the Supplemental EIS was written and this land management committment was made, the IBWC has mowed the entire acreage for purposes of maintaining flows in the event of a Rio Grande flood. This activity by IBWC renders these lands unsuitable for purposes of conservation. Therefore, we have identified these acreage, although not USFWS owned, but represent commitments made by COB from a previous development project that needs re-designated/offset due to current circumstances. 5.

Champion Bend Tract [FEE OWNED] - south of Military Highway about 3 blocks east of Alton Gloor Blvd) - 82.08 acres/most south of IBWC levee

-NOTE: This refuge tract has 75 feet of the river bank mowed by IBWC due to river bends and flow models that indicated/suggest the refuge vegetation could cause additional flooding impacts.

Therefore, IBWC annually mows the river bank which impacts the value of this refuge tract for migratory mammals using the river corridor.

6.

Jeronimo Banco Tract [FEE OWNED] - south of Southmost Road; south of Milpa Verde Road; East Loop (SH32) Road/Levee/ Border Wall relocation area - 288.04 acres/most south of

IBWC

levee

-NOTE: This refuge tract is scheduled to be impacted (~44 acres lost) due to SH32 East Loop Road Project. The relocation of the IBWC levee and Border Fence and creation of the East Loop SH32 will result in the direct loss of ~44 acres of refuge land. Remaining lands associated with this refuge tract are constantly under threat from illegal activities and subsequent Border Patrol activities. We would prefer to exchange the entire tract rather than carve out only 44 acres for this highway project. In closing, my apologies for the delay in responding back to COB regarding a possible future land exchange. Discussions with other staff within COB previously suggested it was not within COB authority to use City funds to purchase (for exchange purposes or otherwise) lands outside the COB city limits. However, we recognize that it is in both the COB and FWS benefit to accomplish a land exchange in order to facilitate COB growth and to better enable the refuge to meet conservation objectives in south Texas. Therefore, we recognize that it may be necessary to partner with Cameron County or other entities that have wider spending authority for the purpose of buying land and ultimately facilitating the exchange effort. We've have worked with the County on numerous TxDOT projects in the past that required mitigation or land exchange, so we know that land exchanges can indeed be accomplished. However, the list of properties above is a sizeable acreage, bigger than anything we've attempted before, so before we get too much momentum in any direction, we want to make sure everyone is clear on how the process must unfold in order to be accomplished. I look forward to getting you more details (and a map of the sites listed above) in the very near future. Sincerely,

Bryan R. Winton, Refuge Manager Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge 3325 Green Jay Road Alamo, TX 78516 (956) 784-7521 (956) 874-4304 cell www.fws.gov www.friendsofsouthtexasrefuges.org
