It’s My Park Day Fall 2017-a success!
16 neighborhood and community volunteers met this morning at the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt to widen and repair trails, collect trash and remove some fallen tress along the paths. Go check it out!
The Austin Parks Foundation awarded us grant money last year to have the trails rebuilt. They looked wonderful right afterwards, but, as expected, small weeds and bushes started encroaching almost immediately, narrowing the paths again. In return for receiving the money, we had committed to maintaining the trails at least twice annually. Having a group of people come in and widen the paths again is one way of keeping the trails open; another one is to use them more frequently and have people walk side by side rather than single file and step on the edges. So, please do your part: walk, hike, bike the greenbelt; take your kids and your dogs and enjoy!
At the same time as we were in the greenbelt, volunteers from Corinna’s Austin AmeriCorpsAlums group cleaned up trash in Ricky Guerrero. Thank you!

————————————<>—————————— Nicholas Dawson Park clean up 10-21-2017
Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday to weed beds in Nicholas Dawson Park on the Gibson Street side. Beds are clean and good looking, bushes were trimmed. (Some blood was shed due to unappreciative agaves as well, but that’s how it goes.) Thanks Cheryl, Laura, David, John, John and Matt!
If you missed it but still want to help, please sign up for It’s My Park Day on November 4 – we’ll be working on the trails in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt. You can register on the Austin Parks Foundation’s website at https://givepul.se/u8ume Ingrid Weigand BCNA Parks Committee 512-663-4632
Update on Special Event Resident Permit Parking Permit proposed changes:
As referenced earlier the City of Austin in consultation with the Parkland Events Task Force has proposed changes to special event neighborhood parking. Residents and stakeholders attended an open house held on July 13th where the proposed Ordinance was vetted. Austin Transportation Department will take the proposed Ordinance before the City Council on November 9th. The council will review the Ordinance, parking fines and associated fees required of Special Event sponsors. At this printing, implementation of the adopted Ordinance will take place in the spring of 2018.
