What Should Happen Along Waller Creek?

Public Planning Workshop May 13

What Should Happen Along Waller Creek?

ROMA Austin is ready to share its initial work on the Waller Creek District Master Plan and the urban designers want to hear from you.

A Wed. May 13th public workshop (see details below) sponsored by the Waller Creek Citizen Advisory Committee offers interested Austinites a chance to share thoughts on the future of the Waller Creek District.

Once the Waller Creek Tunnel is built, removing creekfront properties from the floodplain, the land will be ripe for redevelopment. The tunnel construction is funded and scheduled for 2010-2014. But there's no money budgeted for improvements – such as a new walking and biking trail, and park improvements – that will make the whole area a positive urban amenity.

Thus the need for a master plan, and a community vision for the area. Show up, and chime in!

WHO: Waller Creek Citizen Advisory Committee and ROMA Design Group

WHAT: Waller Creek District Master Plan - Public Workshop

WHEN: Wednesday, May 13, 2009 from 6-9 p.m

WHERE: Austin Convention Center in Ballroom C 500 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78701

Additional opportunities for public input will be available throughout the master plan work schedule. In addition to the May 13th public workshop, stakeholder focus groups sessions and a Town Hall meeting are planned.
