All the News that Fits July 2020

Hello neighbors, a lot going on in Austin. We try to inform folks of events impacting the ‘hood. We also try and update events/happenings from our neighbors.
Missing something, let us know. Thanks

I remember a farmer’s lament appropriate for these times-
“It’s always something, if it’s not one damn thing it’s another, but it’s always something!”

So here are some somethings/local updates:
Bouldin Stroll on Thursdays Update
Given the number of heat advisories we’ve had this week alone, it seems like poor judgement to encourage anyone to get out and walk in this weather. We are postponing the official Stroll until we can all be outside for longer than 5 minutes without looking like a glazed doughnut.
Please take care of yourselves and look for an email in a few months to get the Stroll up and running (or walking) again.
Thank you! Kate Francis
VP of Neighborhood Issues, BCNA

West Nile virus
Austin, Texas – The year’s first positive pool of mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus has been identified in the 78756-zipcode of Travis County.
Please check your property for standing water and clear it-those little wigglers grow up fast.

Covid-19
Appears we ended June and will end July with a spike in cases and stage 4: Risk. It is hard to pin down all the causes: willful Ignorance, terminal stupidity or folks just having to get out, socialize and party.
We have intelligent neighbors, up on rules, guidelines and responsibilities, so y’all know what to do….. stay safe, healthy and sane! It’s up to us!
Follow the city’s guidelines-better information then from the Feds or the State.

Bouldin Stroll on Thursdays

Hello neighbors,

The steering committee of the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association has been discussing ways that neighbors can stay connected during these isolated times. We’re proposing a Bouldin Stroll on Thursdays from 6-8pm. Get out and sit in your front yard or on your porch, go for a walk and wave and chat to neighbors, take the kids on their bikes around the hood. Many of you already do this, but sometimes having a reminder on the calendar is a nice way to make sure you are connecting with others, and it gives us all an opportunity to check on those who may not have a lot of social interactions in their life these days. This is very informal and there is no official starting time or location. Consider it a motivation to get out if you are finding yourself stuck in a rut and craving a wave from a kind (masked) face.

If you are setting up a table with something to offer people coming by, or want others to join you in your yard for a distanced drink, please reply all to any of my email reminders to let others know how to find you.

By now we all know the guidelines to follow. Please wear your masks to keep others safe. If you are feeling under the weather, or have been in a situation that would make you more likely to have been exposed, please do not risk the health of others, stay home, and join us another time.

I would love to hear feedback on this. Would you like to do it more often, add something to it, or does the idea of so many people out and about at the same time worry you? Comments are welcome.
Thank you,
Kate Francis
VP of Neighborhood Issues, BCNA

Celebrate the Fourth of July, 2020
We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.
An experiment worth celebrating and like all experiments always needing a tweak here, a nudge there and an occasional poke.
But worthwhile, so let’s celebrate!
Cheers, Gary Hyatt, web lackey

COVID-19 update: Appears we ended June and start July with a spike in cases and stage 4: Risk. It is hard to pin down all the causes: willful Ignorance, terminal stupidity or folks just having to get out, socialize and party. But we will pay-having lost our first engagement in our war against this virus. If we can’t act responsibly, not only do we put family, friends and others at risk and increase the financial burden of medical care but also may well force the closure of some of our small businesses.
It’s up to us!

Get out and VOTE (Note from neighbor Melynda Nuss)
June 29th is your first chance to VOTE EARLY for the JULY 14 RUNOFF! We have several important races on the ballot this time, including choosing a new District Attorney and County Attorney, picking Kirk Watson’s successor in the Texas State Senate, and choosing which candidate is going to beat John Cornyn in the fall. Early voting runs from June 29-July 10th, with polls closed July 3rd and 4th for Independence Day. Election Day is July 14th.
Like everything else this year, voting is going to be a little different. There will be no more grocery store early voting locations — it’s too hard to social distance. And only a limited number of people are allowed indoors, so the County Clerk advises everyone to bring some water an umbrella to shield yourself from the sun in case you have to wait outside. There will be hand sanitizer and disposable ballot “pens” to use with your touch screens. Also, because of the 4th of July weekend, the only weekend voting day is Sunday, July 5th. The early voting period is longer than usual this election; I’d advise you to take advantage of it. You really do NOT want to be in a line on Election Day.
The other big news: Gardner Betts (across from the HEB on South Congress) is NOT a polling place this time. Our closest early voting locations are Travis High School, 1211 East Oltorf, and City Hall. On Election Day there will also be polls open at 1511 South Congress and 1100 Cumberland Rd — in addition to City Hall and Travis High.
Also see Attached for early voting locations.

If you think it seems odd to vote in July, you’re right. The runoff was originally scheduled for May, but it was moved on account of COVID.
Check votetravis.com and vote411.org for more information about your closest polling place and about what’s going to be on the ballot. You can find information on the candidates in the Austin Chronicle. And may the force be with you.

Note June Association meeting!
Note from BCNA Officers
Hi Neighbors,
The Association Officers are in discussion regarding having an informal Neighborhood Zoom meeting – one neighbor has an account that can host 100 people (doubt if we would have that many). This would likely be an unofficial meeting, as we’ve already cancelled the actual meeting.
Please stay tuned – hoping we can get something going.
Thanks, Ronnie D, Treasurer

Hot off the press is the August-September Bouldin Bulletin.
The same good stuff you might have read while drinking a cup of coffee —but in digital form. HERE

Here is some current information on the Land Development Code Revision:
City Council held a special-called meeting with an update on the Land Development Code Revision on Wednesday, August 28th at 3 p.m. at City Hall.
The release of the proposal is scheduled for 10/4 and the vote in early December.
City blog here: http://austintexas.gov/ldc_news#Blog%203

From an engaged neighbor “I came for a viewing of Zoned Out, The Legacy of Code Next and earlier this week I watched the 2 hours of the Special City Council Meeting on the LDC Rewrite.
There is no question, Bouldin Creek as well as other central city neighborhoods will be severely impacted by the rewrite and now it comes down to how and how much.”
“What does it mean and what are my options”.

Our next GA meeting is Oct. 8th and the Land Development Code Revision will be the top issue of discussion.

For more information check out:
The Austin Bulldog

https://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2019-08-30/public-notice-mapping-our-transitions/

Last notes-there have been almost no conversations (except by neighborhood groups) of impact of up-zoning to MF (Multi-Family)-increased value, increased taxes!
Also from CM Jimmy Flannigan as he hastened to confirm, for the benefit of his own constituents, that “to be clear: For better or for worse, none of this changes a community’s deed restrictions.” Flannigan has noted more than once that much of his own district won’t be affected by whatever changes are made in the new code because the properties have deed restrictions, which often mandate single-family homes on large lots, and prohibit any types of ADUs, duplexes, or multifamily or mixed use. (Ironically, he’s been one of the most aggressive voices advocating across-the-board up-zoning for center-city neighborhoods that don’t have such deed restrictions.) Noted from Austin Chronicle.
