Thank you. This is very helpful. I am working up letters to the Cityand UTB to memorialize our discussions (and show how we are consultingwith them).Thanks again, Advisor to the Commissioner and State & Local LiaisonU.S. Customs and Border ProtectionDepartment of Homeland SecurityPhone ------Original Message-----From:Sent: Thursday, February 28, 2008 6:00 PMTo:Cc:Subject: RE: More UTB issues1). To answer your questions regarding the gate by the UTB golf course:Border Patrol has stated to UTB that we intend to install a gate on theroad that leads up to the golf course. The Brownsville Border PatrolStation PAIC has agreed to keep the gate open during the golf course'shours of operation and close the gate during the night. During specialtimes of need, based on operational concerns, the gate would be closed.Under these circumstances, however, Border Patrol would make contactwith UTB and make arrangements to allow the passage of legitimatetraffic in and out of the area. I would like to stress that this wouldonly happen during special circumstances, in which our threat level israised and we need to take extra precautionary measure to adequatelyaddress the threat.2). To answer your question on the Hope Park issue: As of the Tuesdaymeeting and subsequent site visit, it was agreed upon that the P-1(Aesthetic Fence Design--permanent Wrought Iron) would be converted to a"floating" design in the area between the Brownsville/Matamoros (B&M)International Bridge and the Gateway International Bridge. Thisdecision was reached as a result of the City of Brownsville expressing aconcern for their commercial development project that they currentlyhave planned. Part of the discussion was that the development wouldincorporate a retaining wall concept on the south face of the PUB levee,which would meet CBP ending requirements (18 ft vertical barrier) andgrant CBP a perpetual easement. Obviously further discussions areneeded, but that was the general concept. A plan would need to beworked out between CBP and the developer to strategically remove the

"floating" fence so that the developer could proceed with theconstruction phase.----------------------------------------------------------------------------Sorry to ask so many questions but I want to get this 100% right. I amwriting a letter back to the City Commissioner and Mayor to memorializeour discussions; I want to minimize the rumors that get started if Ican.I got an AAR from Brownsville that captures the discussion with the Cityre: installation of floating fence on O-19 in the Hope Park area that wetoured. I need to know if we can say that CBP is also willing todiscuss floating fence for O-19 west of the B&M bridge; I believe thatis where most of the proposed development would be located based on theslide deck I received from the City. I am not sure it matters muchsince we may not be able to work out a way to do the land titles butwant to show that we are "consulting" with them.Thanks,-----Original Message-----From:Sent: Thursday, February 28, 2008 3:41 PMTo:Cc:Subject: RE: More UTB issuesCan you check with Sector to see what has been communicated in the pastto UTB re: a gate. Per UTB, they had heard there would not be a gate. Again, I think it's silly to argue it both ways and if I were down thereI would want a gate there now to block night-time access to the courseand river, even if there wasn't a fence.-----Original Message-----From:Sent: Thursday, February 28, 2008 3:19 PMTo:Cc:Subject: Re: More UTB issuesI do know there will be a gate. The gate will be open during businesshours of the course. I can't imagine why they would want open accessafter hours of the course.----- Original Message -----From:To:Cc:Sent: Thu Feb 28 14:52:15 2008Subject: RE: More UTB issues
