EVENTS:
The BOULDIN ART WALK June 12 11AM-6PM
Announcing the first ever Bouldin Art Walk, to be held Saturday, June 12 from 11:00am-6:00pm
The pandemic has marooned most of Bouldin’s Artists and artisans, but nonetheless we have continued to create art during the lock-down. Now we want to show the world what we’ve been up to during the past year.
For more information and to see the artists who are participating go to our FB page Bouldin Art Walk.
We are all so excited to be putting on this show and hope to see lots of our neighbors checking out the talented artists of the Bouldin neighborhood and taking home some lovely pieces!!!
The map is attached and is also on the FB page.

Notice of Event and Healthy Streets Program
From Thom Parker Traffic@bouldincreek.org
Sunday July 4th Austin Symphony and Fireworks Show sponsored by HEB
Vic Mathias Shores 8:00 PM

The July 4th HEB Austin Symphony Concert and Fireworks Show is the first of two announced Special Events requiring barricades to enter neighborhood. Barricades will be placed at the Northern entries from Barton Springs at Bouldin Ave. and Dawson and on W. Gibson at Christopher, Bouldin Ave. and South 5th St.
At this time the only other announced event requiring barricades is Austin City Limits scheduled for the weekends of October 1st – 3rd and 8th – 10th. Traffic for the ACL weekends promises to be extremely heavy anywhere near Zilker park.
Residents living within the Orange and Pink Sectors located between Barton Springs on the North and Gibson St. on the South will receive 2- Bouldin 2021 Access Pass for each household within these two sectors. Delivery of passes will begin the week of June 14th. These passes allow residents to pass staffed barricades to get to their home.


Healthy Streets Program – Bouldin Creek Neighborhood
The Healthy Streets initiative located on Bouldin Ave and South 3rd Streets in the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood is funded through September 2021. It is unknown what will happen after September. Throughout the pandemic neighborhood residents have expressed an appreciation for the Healthy Streets program on Bouldin and South 3rd. Streets. Updates on the program can be found at https://www.austintexas.gov/HealthyStreets

The SoCo Parking Study
The SoCo Parking Study is not presently top of
mind for the Transportation Department as they focus
on Project Connect. They will reengage in late Summer
or early Fall. In the interim, the Steering Committee has
encouraged everybody to participate in the survey and
we will have this as an agenda item on our June 8 virtual
General Association Meeting. We need a lot of questions
answered but we do want to get a sense of where the
neighborhood stands. IMPORTANT that you provide feedback at the below feedback link ASAP.

Zilker Masterplan Survey
Neighbors,
The City of Austin is embarking on a masterplan for Zilker. It will entail a lot of issues, from general use to transportation and parking, sustainability, maintenance, etc. There will be several opportunities for community input, but for now, it would be helpful if as many people as possible could fill out the online survey https://publicinput.com/ZilkerVision , open until June 1.
It seems it has been out for a while but has not been that well publicized to neighborhoods. I participated in a small Neighborhood Input meeting (w reps from Zilker, Barton Hills, Rollingwood) today; there was some talk of including Butler Shores in the master plan. What happens in Zilker impacts us in many ways, but even more so if Butler Shores is included.
At the meeting today, we asked for the opportunity to give additional input throughout the process.
Thanks,
Ingrid Weigand

Council OKs site for new Dougherty Arts Center
City Council voted unanimously Thursday to approve a site for the Daugherty Arts Center, close to the current ZACH Theatre at Butler Shores Park. The site, called 1A, was not city staffers’ first choice, but it was clear that staffers’ selection, 1B, had too many opponents, including the Save Our Springs Alliance.
District 5 Council Member Ann Kitchen led the charge against staffers’ preferred option, which would have taken up considerably more parkland than the alternative. SOS attorney Bobby Levinski and SOS Executive Director Bill Bunch both urged Council to select the site farthest away from the hike and bike trail.
As Levinski noted in a letter to Council, “As much as Austin likes to market itself as a green oasis, we have a serious parkland deficiency. We simply do not have enough parkland to serve our expanding population.” He said a recent index showed that Austin ranked 37th among the largest American cities in meeting parkland needs for its residents. “With this perspective in mind, it is baffling to us that the city is – yet again – considering converting several acres of prime parkland along Lady Bird Lake into buildings and driveways for an art center, along with a parking garage to accommodate more single-family automobiles.”
SOS emailed its members earlier this week alerting them to the upcoming vote and asking them to contact their Council members and the mayor. Kitchen said her office had received about 300 emails on the subject.
The city’s Parks and Recreation Board and the Environmental Commission both passed resolutions expressing their concern about the 1B option because it would have taken up too much parkland. The Barton Place Condo HOA also wrote to tell Council its members supported option 1A.
Friends of the Dougherty Arts Center, on the other hand, wrote two letters, the first of which did not say which site it preferred. The second letter said that staffers’ preferred option “best addresses the variety of traffic/parking concerns expressed in past meetings by stakeholders.”
Environmentalist Roy Waley also addressed Council about the matter, urging them not to use any parkland at all. He suggested repurposing some currently underused Austin Independent School District buildings.
Kitchen said the scenario she chose preserves more green space and avoids additional impervious cover on parkland.
Parks and Recreation Department Director Kimberly McNeeley recognized the need to change staffers’ position, telling Council that option 1A was just fine with them.
Kitchen’s motion included direction to ensure that the new arts center would maximize green space, allow for future expansion plans, establish Riverside Drive as the primary public ingress and egress, and address challenges for parents picking up and dropping off their kids.
Staffers were directed to do a traffic impact analysis, with the goal of reducing single-occupancy vehicular traffic on the narrow Toomey Road. The analysis, Kitchen said, should acknowledge heavy bike and pedestrian use along that road.

Steering Committee Meeting Monday May 03 is Canceled.
paul strange via groups.io, to BCNA officers
We have been advised that Austin Transportation Department will not designate a representative to attend our SC Meeting and answer the multiple questions raised by the SoCo PTMD Study. Their refusal was based on needing to focus on Project Connect. They hope to circle back to the SoCo PTMD by late Summer/early Fall.
Since that was going to be the focal point of our meeting and I’m not aware of any other pressing issues, I’m cancelling the Monday’s SC Meeting.

VOTE: You know what to do and an email reminder from a neighbor!
Note from Ingrid Weigand via groups.io
to BCNAForum
“Today (Saturday) is Election Day. Please remember to vote if you have not already done so!
Municipal elections, especially ones with no candidate on the ballot, are typically sparsely attended (30 % seems to be considered “good”) so a few people get to make decisions for a lot of us. Be one of them….”

SoCo First Thursday
From the South Congress Improvement Association
We’d like to bring First Thursdays back to SoCo
starting Thursday, May 6!
First Thursday in May will be much like a soft opening. While we’re still building herd immunity statewide, we want to be cautious of drawing large crowds and we want to give everyone time to get back in the swing of things. We will hold off on any heavy promotion to traditional media for the First Thursday in May, and will instead stick to social media promotion.

A word about Snakes
Springtime in Central Texas is peak snake season!
Sneaky serpents: Texas Department of Agriculture reminds Texans to keep sharp eye out for snakes
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says that snakes start “emerging from their dens in late February or early March in Texas.”
When winter ends and the sun starts to come back out in Austin, so do the snakes.
Springtime in Central Texas is peak snake season, said local snake expert Tim Cole. Although the majority of alerts called into Cole’s Austin Reptile Service are nonvenomous, he said there is a chance Austinites might encounter a western diamondback rattlesnake or other venomous snake in their backyards this spring.
“They’ve gone the winter without eating, our daytime temperatures aren’t too hot, and for a lot of species it’s breeding season,” Cole said. “That’s why we see more in the spring than any other time of year.”
“Most of them are benefiting us by protecting homes from rodent damage,” Cole said. “And a lot of them are competing with venomous snakes for food. So if you remove a nonvenomous snake from the area, you may very well be inviting a rattlesnake or copperhead to come over.”
A post from KVUE HERE: Spring time in Texas is peak snake season

February…what a month! Weather warnings of an arctic blast coming!
February 9th chilly and gray, 10th in the 40s, 12th in the 30s, 13th in the 20s and going down! 14th, Valentine’s Day, Brrrrrrrrrrrr! An evening to snuggle up with a Valentine, a large pile of quilts or call it a 3 dog night. At 2 a.m. on president’s day, power out, water out and a week of grief coming. And some still on going. Hope everyone is faring better!

“BCNAForum@groups.io serves the ‘hood”
— M. Coldwell
During the recent freeze in February the neighborhood
list serve has proven to be a benefit in many
ways. While communication from the City was at
times vague, the BCNAForum served as a way for
neighbors to know what was really going on within
our neighborhood boundaries. Messages of help,
advice and reassurance kept many neighbors informed
during the black out and water outage. Even
more significant was the way the BCNAForum
helped connect neighbors with one another – for
water cutoff tools or other helpful resources. One
of the things that the BCNA does is pay for this
forum. It is a unique service to our hood that we
support without advertisement or fees. As a resident
in the hood you can sign up to the forum by going
to: https://groups.io/g/BCNAForum/join

Editor’s note:  Also a big Thanks and kudos to our city employees working on power and water lines and the emergency service folks all working in cold, icy conditions
