ANC General Membership Meeting Wednesday June 22

JoinANC-umbrellaFor anyone interested in Land Planning it looks like this month’s Austin Neighborhoods Council is serving up what should be some very informative presentations about Neighborhood Plans, CodeNext, Corridor Plans, Etc.  It’s always good to hear about this stuff from those closest to the action and that is who will be presenting on the 22nd.

Cherrywood Reps will be attending and everyone is welcome.

The meeting location is next door to Sandy’s so it’s a good excuse to indulge in a summertime ice cream cone!

BTW, ANC is composed of over 80 member neighborhoods across the city so it’s a good opportunity to chat it up with other community minded folks.

– Jules Kniolek, CNA Chair

Dear ANC Member Representatives,
It’s that time again- the General Membership Meeting for Austin Neighborhoods Council will be this coming week, Wednesday, June 22 at 7 PM, 721 Barton Springs Road. “Meet and Greet” starts at 6:30 PM. We have a sizzling program ready for you!

Regarding land use issues which will coordinate with future transportation plans, Acting Division Manager Stevie Greathouse from the Planning Department will talk about Small Area Plans and Corridor Plan Implementation, while Malcolm Yeatts will attest to some glitches in the implementation of the East Riverside Corridor Plan.

In a spirit of point and counterpoint, Environmental Program Engineer Matt Hollon from the Watershed Protection Department will present an overview of the Flood Mitigation Task Force, while Flood Mitigation Task Force Members, Elloa Matthews a and Anna Aguirre will point out the specifics that need more work.

More conversation will surface about environmental issues affecting our land use code when Eleanor McKinney, a landscape architect and CodeNEXT CAG member summarizes her work on the CodeNEXT Prescription paper, The Natural and Built Environment;  Executive Director for Save Our Springs Bill Bunch, will serve as a counter point for the SOS perspective.

A perennial favorite, Chair Jim Duncan from the CodeNEXT Advisory Group, will introduce us to a new concept and proposal for Austin city government- a Department of Neighborhoods.

To kick off the evening, Jeff Travillion, the Democratic Nominee for County Commissioner Precinct 1, will present his sustainable vision for Travis County, followed by Director Carl Smart of the Code Department who will update us on the work in that department.

We hope to see you at this upcoming meeting of Austin Neighborhoods Council- never dull!

Best,
Mary Ingle
ANC President
