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

7:30–South Congress parking study update

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

Neighbors,

BCNA will hold annual Officer and Sector Representative elections on Tuesday, December 11,
at the General Association Meeting.

We published most candidate statements in the BCNA newsletter that you should have received by now.
However, some neighbors have announced their candidacy since then, so I am re-sending all statements.
With 13 positions on the ballot, that makes for a lot of reading.
I am therefore breaking them down into several e-mails:

President,
Director of Communications
VP Neighborhood Issues and VP External Affairs
Treasurer, Secretary
Green & Lavender Sector Reps
Blue & Yellow Sector Reps
Pink & Brown Sector Reps
Orange Sector – STILL NEED CANDIDATE

Thanks,
Ingrid Weigand
Member, BCNA Elections Committee
