Special Meeting of the Hancock Neighborhood Association April 28, 2022

Hello Neighbors,

Many of you are already familiar with the Cady Lofts Supportive Housing development that's been proposed for 1004, 1006, 1008, East 39th St. We've had two meetings now for the developers to present their plans to us and take our questions.

Recordings of both meetings are available here:

Two critical dates for the project are approaching and the Hancock Neighborhood Association needs to provide input to the city on the proposed zoning changes in advance of those meetings and their deadlines for information:

  • Planning Commission Meeting: May 10th, deadline to submit materials--May 3rd. (There's been some talk of this being formally moved to the May 24th Planning Committee, but this has not been confirmed)
  • CANPAC Meeting: May 16th

Even though I'd like to take more time to build consensus and research the options recently presented by the Cady developers, we need to meet as a neighborhood to adopt a resolution we can provide to the City and other organizations in advance of their meetings.

After consulting with the HNA Executive Committee and Zoning Committee Members, I've decided to call a special called meeting for Thursday, April 28th, at 7 pm. We'll conduct the meeting on Zoom and the meeting information is below.

Here's the Agenda for the Meeting:

  1. HNA Presentation on the Proposed Development and Discussion
  2. Resolution Presentation and Discussion
  3. Vote

We will post a draft of the presentation and proposed resolution early this week to the HNA groups.io listserv so that everyone has a chance to review it in advance of the meeting.

Only dues-paying members of the HNA can vote at the meeting. If you haven't paid your 2022 dues yet, the HNA join section provides information on how to pay online or using the mail.

Additional Agenda Item for the December 8, 2021 Meeting of the Hancock Neighborhood Association

Hello Neighbors,

One additional agenda item for our HNA meeting this evening is a zoning item that is going before the Austin planning commission on December 14th. The public hearing notice is attached here: https://www.hancockna.org/www/content/3500-3700-ih-35-rezoning-notice.pdf

The 1.13-acre lot located at 3500-3700 N IH 35 Southbound has made a request to change the allowable height from 65 feet to 120 feet. No change has been requested to impervious cover limitations, which remains 85%.

Here's a link to the case on the City's website:

March 31, 2021 Special Meeting of the Hancock Neighborhood Association

Hello Neighbors,

 

The HNA Executive Commitee  and Parks Committee would like to invite you to a special joint committee meeting on  Wednesday, March 31st, at 7pm  using Zoom (information below) to develop a consensus toward developing a statement the neighborhood can present to the Parks Board.

 

Background and Timeline:  PARD gave a presentation at the January 21st HNA Meeting that laid out the goals for Hancock Golf Course and the Timeline for the process going forward to make recommendations to the Parks Board in April, culminating in a Memorandum to Council for Project Summary in May. The Community Survey on Desired Elements was posted from March 9-23rd, and we are expecting results to be made public shortly.

In the presentation, PARD laid out the following goals and inclusion of community input:

 

"PARD Goal for Hancock Golf Course:

1)      Increase the fiscal responsibility of city funds

2)      Financial solvency at Hancock Golf Course

3)      Maintain golf's historic significance at this location by seeking a concessionaire to update and manage golf at Hancock."

 

What this means:

•            The  focus will be on keeping golf in line with community input

•            PARD will include community input in the RFP process

•            The community can share additional park elements to be considered

 

This meeting's agenda is to find consensus on a collective Statement on recommendations from the HNA membership to be sent to the Parks Board for their consideration as this process goes forward.

 

The HNA Executive Committee and Parks Committee have culled feedback from neighborhood meetings and Groups.io discussions. They have put forward three components to address the budgetary issues, community space and undesired elements as the basis of the Statement.

 

Component 1: Support budget sustainability for Hancock Golf Course

 •          Promote adding food and beverage vendors to offset the cost for equipment and course improvements

 •          Suggest opening the rec center as a clubhouse on Sundays to promote golf community interest.

 •          Redesign of problematic holes identified on the golf course to increase rounds played

 •          Youth golf programs that serve city-wide groups, such as the Junior Golf Academy and First Tee

 •          Introduce adult-beginner programs to attract new players

 •          Annual frisbee golf tournament

 •          Family-friendly live music events, a couple of times a year, featuring nonamplified acoustic music to serve as Hancock fundraisers.

 

Component 2: Continuation of non-golf community spaces (trail, soccer fields, playscape, etc.)

 •          Ensure that existing non-golf community spaces are preserved (trail, soccer fields, playscape, etc.)

 •          Continued collaboration with PARD on non-golf community use as exemplified in the trail installation

 •          HNA engagement session to explore the enhancement of community spaces

 •          Non-golf open park days

 

Component 3: What we do NOT want

 •          Driving range

 •          Netting/fencing around Hancock Golf Course

 •          Night lighting beyond the Hancock Rec Center parking lot

 

During the meeting, we'll provide members with an opportunity express support for each component and the elements that should be included in a final statement that will be drafted by the Executive and Parks Committee. 

We look forward to talking with you and will see you next week.

 

Thank you,

 

Coan Dillahunty
HNA President
