Historic Resources Survey of North Loop, Hancock, and Upper Boggy Creek

City of Austin
The City of Austin is conducting a historic resources survey of the North Loop, Hancock, and Upper Boggy Creek neighborhood planning areas. The purpose of the project is to document the histories of these areas and identify potential historic landmarks and historic districts. The City has retained Austin-based professional historians and architectural historians from Cox|McLain Environmental Consulting, Inc. and Preservation Central Inc. to complete the project.

Survey fieldwork will be conducted between December 2019 and February 2020 and will involve taking notes on the architectural features of buildings 45 years old or older (such as exterior materials and roof form), mapping the locations of resources, and taking digital photographs. All work will be completed from the public right-of-way.
 
Members of the community area are encouraged to participate in the project.

Attend a neighborhood meeting to learn more:

This project is being conducted by the City of Austin’s Historic Preservation Office. The City’s point of contact for this project is Andrew Rice (Andrew.rice@austintexas.gov).
 
Note: The scope of this project is information gathering only and is not related to the Land Development Code Revision. This project will entail no changes to zoning. Any future zoning changes would follow the separate public process for zoning changes, which includes an opportunity for public comment and consideration of owner preferences.
