Hello neighbors–The next general membership meeting of the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association will be next Tuesday, June 11, beginning at 6:45 pm at the High Road on Dawson, 700 Dawson. Hope to see you there. Here is the currently envisioned agenda:

6:45–introductions

7:00–South Central Waterfront presentation, discussion, & vote (see proposed resolution below)
7:30–South Congress parking study update
7:35–Parks Committee Update
7:40–adjourn

Proposed South Central Waterfront Resolution

Resolution:

  1. The City Council should not approve any new entitlements above existing base zoning or those entitlements outlined in existing PUD ordinances for the Statesman tract or any other properties in the South Central Waterfront plan area until the Council has implemented the regulatory and financial measures needed to ensure that the Austin community may realize the full public benefits outlined in the South Central Waterfront Vision Plan.

Background Facts:

  1. In June 2016 the Austin City Council adopted the South Central Waterfront Vision Plan, which envisions more affordable housing, connectivity, green spaces and great streets as the waterfront is developed.
  2. Three years later the Council has not implemented the development, financing, and regulation frameworks outlined in the vision plan and needed for the Waterfront Plan to become reality.
  3. Other developers working in the South Central Waterfront area are currently lobbying for similar PUDs and extraordinary entitlements above base zoning in the near future, and the framework for the Waterfront Plan is still not in place.

Thanks & have a good weekend–Jesse, BNCA Prez

Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park improvements

Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park improvements

Neighbors,

Planning for Ricky G improvements have been in the works for over two years. Yesterday, the City sent out the notification below; our Parks Committee will get more details from the project manager and share them.
Thanks,

Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park will be closing for renovations beginning Tuesday, January 22, 2019. The park areas containing the restroom facility, play equipment, picnic tables and grills will be closed during the renovation period. When completed, Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park will have new ADA compliant sidewalks, picnic tables and grills, benches, rain gardens, infrastructure for drainage control, and an improved restroom facility compliant with current ADA standards. Improvements to the playgrounds will also include a pre-school play structure which will provide a more accessible, enjoyable and inclusive play area for the community. The renovations at Ricky Guerrero Neighborhood Park are anticipated to be completed by early summer 2019.

It’s My Park Day celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt

Neighbors,

Thank you to everyone who attended the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Open House on Saturday, November 3. We had a very good turn out – about 40 people, including several Zilker residents, explored the trails, looked at the new signage and got updates on future plans to improve the Post Oak Street Trailhead.

A thanks to Matt Coldwell for our new WBCGB sign ! View HERE

Take a look for yourself: https://flic.kr/s/aHskHKo4vi

Many thanks to those of you who helped clear the trails and pick up trash before the event and especially the BCNA Parks Committee members who created and installed our temporary signage.

The trails on the greenbelt will only stay open and weed-free if they are used – so take yourselves, your kids and your (leashed, please) pets for a walk, look for wildlife & native plants and enjoy this marvelous green space in the middle of our neighborhood

If you see anything that needs attention, please e-mails parkscommittee@bouldincreek.org

Thanks,
