A temporary plaza in the South Central Waterfront Area

 posted 05-03/2017
Neighbors,
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
  1. 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.
