Hello neighbors–The next general membership meeting of the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association will be next Tuesday, August 13, beginning at 6:45 pm at the High Road on Dawson, 700 Dawson. Hope to see you there.
Here is the current agenda: 6:45–Introductions; 6:55–Traffic Safety & Parking and Parks Committee updates; 7:00–Confirmation vote on BCNA support for crosswalk painting at South Congress & Gibson; 7:05–Discussion and vote on proposed resolution regarding CodeNext (aka land use code rewrite) –proposed resolution below; 7:20–Statesman site redevelopment presentation by Endeavor Real Estate Group; 7:50–Adjourn
Proposed resolution: BCNA opposes unequal zoning changes targeted at only certain current residential areas and instead supports equal treatment for all property currently zoned as “single family” throughout the City.
Austin had a long history of discriminatory treatment of certain areas that needs to stop.
Unequal policy will both exacerbate displacement of people in targeted areas and fail
to maximize affordability and environment protection in the other areas of the City.
Austin’s land use laws should promote affordability and walkability equally everywhere in all
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:

Proposed South Central Waterfront Resolution
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.
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.
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.
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.
