President’s Message with upcoming big Zoning issues and CodeNEXT. Parks Update including Parkland Events Taskforce (PETF) with more informatione here: Special Events RPP Proposal Info-2017-05-12.pdf
BCNA Special Event Parking Proposal 2017-05-12
Affected Neighborhoods Plan
While still in its formative stage, this program is intended to replace the existing barricade system. The objective of Special Event RPP, like the barricades, is to prevent over parking in the neighborhood during special events. It has the additional benefit of keeping Dawson and Bouldin open to all traffic and will be extended to Mary Street which helps address the over parking that was occurring South of the barricades on Gibson Street.

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.
