If there is something going on in the city that could impact Central Austin's neighborhoods, Mary Ingle is most likely there. Like a gentler, modern Madame Defarge, Ingle sits through long (sometimes tedious) meetings, watching, listening, and speaking her mind when need be. Currently serving as first vice president of the Austin Neighborhoods Council, a representative of the Central Austin Neighborhood Planning Advisory Committee, and a member of the Residential Design and Compatibility Commission, Ingle volunteers a lot of her time ensuring that she and her neighbors know what is going on. With this award, we humbly volunteer our appreciation for her often-unappreciated dedication.
