Together We Can Maintain the Integrity of Town Lake
RECEIVED Fri., Jan. 26, 2007
Dear Editor, The Save Town Lake organization would like to extend our most sincere thanks to the Austin community for its support in our efforts to preserve the parks and open spaces along Town Lake. Special thanks to staff writer Katherine Gregor and The Austin Chronicle editors for their Jan. 19 cover story [“On the Waterfront,” News, Jan. 19], which played a critical role in bringing attention to this important issue that affects the very heart of the city. We hope that the Chronicle continues to keep this issue in the public eye. Due to overwhelming support from the area’s music community, the recent STL benefit at Antone’s was a tremendous success. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of the musicians and volunteers for their time, energy, and money invested in this cause. Finally, we also thank the Austin Neighborhood Council, South River City Citizens, Zilker Neighborhood Association, and Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association for their continued support. Together, we can have a dramatic impact in maintaining the integrity of the Town Lake Corridor for all of Austin. Save Town Lake is a nonprofit corporation with the mission of protecting Austin’s most precious resource. We support responsible development while promoting public awareness of the city’s highest regulatory standards.
Sincerely, Thomas F. Cooke Save Town Lake www.savetownlake.org
