According to News reporter Daniel Mottola, reactions to the new Barton Springs Master Plan were mixed a few weeks ago after a presentation during a Save Barton Creek Association meeting. The plan aims to rehabilitate the bathhouse, manage flooding, and improve water quality, among other things. Some skeptics worried the plan was better for city staff and consultants than the springs, while others criticized the planning process – but not everyone was a critic.
