Reminder: Hancock Neighborhood Association Meeting May 20

The Hancock Neighborhood Association will meet this Wednesday, May 20, at 7:00 pm at the Hancock Recreation Center. At this month' s meeting, we will have the first of a series of presentations on whether there are options available to prevent the loss of single family homes in older neighborhoods. The Director of Preservation Austin and the Director of Austin Historic Landmark Commission will be our guest speakers. We are looking forward to discussing ways the Hancock neighborhood might work with their organizations to prevent the demolition of older homes and the continuing loss of the architectural and historic characteristics of our neighborhood.

The meeting agenda will also include a representative from Lee Elementary School, who will discuss traffic safety and calming ideas near the school, and a report on the latest demolition permit request for a 1930s home at 3213 Harris Park Avenue and the duplex and single family construction at 3207 Liberty and 3205 Liberty.

I look forward to seeing you this Wednesday, May 20th,

Mark Harkrider
