Dear Editor About five years ago a developer purchased the property at the intersection of Spicewood Springs Road and Yaupon Drive immediately west of Loop 360. This beautiful, environmentally sensitive open space adjacent to Bull Creek was to be turned into a boutique hotel. The local community fought the proposal and delayed it. During the July 29th City Council Meeting the Council will have an opportunity to acquire the property and add it to the system of parks along Bull Creek. The agenda item is 98. I encourage you to contact your Council Member and Mayor Adler and encourage them to purchase this property for ALL the citizens of Austin. For today's citizens and those in the future that enjoy swimming, fishing and hiking along Austin's Hill Country creeks.
