Disgusted With Council's Descision On Park PUD

RECEIVED Tue., March 1, 2011

Dear Editor,
    I am writing to express my total dismay and near disgust with our current City Council's majority position on the Park PUD proposed at the site of the former Filling Station restaurant on Barton Springs Road. This project is opposed by an impressive list: city staff, the Planning Commission (unanimously), the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association in which it is located, the South River City Citizens Neighborhood Association next door to the east, the umbrella group Austin Neighborhoods Council, the Save Town Lake organization, and it violates the City Council-adopted Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Plan.
    Six of seven council members voted for this project on first reading and all seem poised to do the same on second and third readings. Thank you, Laura Morrison, for remembering whom you represent. As for the others, your arrogance with regard to this vote is absolutely overwhelming.
    I'm about ready for an Arab state-style peaceful protest.
