Best Place To Try Out Community-centered City Planning

Robert Mueller Airport

Since the airport moved down south, the city of Austin has been given a unique opportunity. A second chance to develop land in Central Austin into something everybody might enjoy. Hyde Park lies just across the highway from the neighborhood this tract of land affects and provides a nice template for the city to work with: Businesses within walking distance of residential areas that don't overwhelm the residents, parks interspersed with asphalt to give inhabitants a break from the city. It's like a rosy dream from the storybooks, and perhaps the city of Austin can find the right fairy godmother to make it all happen.
