Reminder: Parks and Recreation Board Meeting Tuesday, August 27th at 6 PM

The Parks and Recreation Board will hold a meeting this evening, Tuesday, August 27th at 6 PM in the Boards and Commissions Room of City Hall. Here is the agenda. The first item on the non-consent portion of the agenda is a presentation by Jim D. Huddleston proposing the redevelopment of Hancock Golf Course. The board asked PARD staff to put the item on this month's agenda to ensure that the proposal is discussed in a public forum and so that the board can take an official position on the matter. Please attend to register your opposition to Mr. Huddleston's proposal. You can also write the Parks and Recreation Board members to provide input.

Austin Water Staging Area

"Renewing Austin" is a five-year program to upgrade aging water lines and to keep pace with the infrastructure demands of a growing city. We are currently replacing waterlines in several areas north of the University of Texas. Working in the dense central city area is always a challenge. I wanted to make you aware that we are planning to use the area bordered by East 38th ½ East 38th and Red River Streets as a staging area. This area is owned by the City of Austin. I would be happy to meet with your board if you have any questions regarding the use of this space.

We will be presenting this issue of using a portion of this triangle of land for a construction staging area to the Parks and Recreation Board this coming Tuesday, August 27th. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the Boards and Commission Room at City Hall. At that time, we will request official approval for use of the space. If allowed, the space would be used for about 1 year and would take up a similar footprint as the last staging area. We will be paying the Parks department approximately $40,000 in mitigation fees for the area. Parks determines if the money will be used at the site, or in other areas. They often take the direction of the neighborhood association on how they will use this money.

I encourage you to come to this meeting and voice any concerns you may have over us working the area. I have attached the maps that will be presented at the meeting.

Sincerely,

Jill Mayfield
