ANC July General Membership Meeting Overview

Written by Katie Halloran

Several CNA members attended the ANC meeting last night, including Jules Kniolek, Justin Irving, and Girard Kinney. Several Schieffer-Willowbrook Association folks attended as well.

  • Brigid Shea, former Austin City Council member presented information on property taxes- how residential versus commercial properties are valued.  She is offering a petition for signature regarding reported inequities in the property tax system. To read or sign the petition you can access it here: www.realvaluesfortexas.org
  • David King presented a resolution on fee waivers for special events that calls on the city to ensure for-profit special event organizers pay for impacts to city services such as police, EMS, and code compliance.  I haven’t seen the resolution on their website, but a draft version is below:

  • John-Michael Cortez presented Project Connect and it was pretty much the same as what we heard at our July 9 meeting with them.
  • Bo McCarver presented a resolution entitled, “Alternate Plans for I-35 Corridor.”  CNA SC sent ANC East a letter with our concerns on this resolution.  ANC voting delegates tabled a vote on this item since the version posted to the ANC website was not the same as the version presented at the meeting.  I can’t find this resolution on the ANC website so please email ANC for a copy and send comments to ANC (copy so we know your thoughts!)
