If Austin is ever to be "the most livable city in the nation," as the city management motto goes, the soon-to-be old airport is probably one of the best places to start. With over 700 acres to work with, the suggestions that have come in to the Redevelopment Task Force have verged on the bizarre -- hey, howzabout a zoo! -- but the most likely scenario is a multi-use land plan mixing low- and middle-income residential, commercial, and open space. Now the only thing we have to worry about is where to put those darn llamas.
