Just wanted to alert y’all to this item up for City Council vote this Thursday. It’s a small part of the grand South Central Waterfront Redevelopment Initiative that’s been presented at BCNA meetings a couple of times over the past two years. This “plaza” closes off that dedicated right hand turn off Southbound South Congress Avenue onto Barton Springs Road. It’ll now require a sharper right onto Baron Springs Road at the Bat sculpture. (If the links work on the item pasted below, they’ll get you to ordinance language and a drawing specifically showing plaza area) This area had been similarly closed off during SXSW and City Traffic Dept. was reviewing for traffic impacts. They”ll do the same with this “pop-up plaza” for about 12 months before determining whether or not to make it permanent. Lee Austin is City Traffic Dept. reviewer who’ll be monitoring this effort.
Cory on Bouldin BCNA Prez
- Approve an ordinance relating to the creation of a temporary plaza in the South Central Waterfront Area; and waiving certain code requirements and associated fees.
