Please join us this Monday night at 6:00 p.m, January 23rd, at City Hall for the Austin Parks Board’s meeting, public hearing and possible initial action on the draft Zilker Park Vision Plan. There is free parking under city hall, accessed on the southbound Guadalupe St. side of city hall. (Get your parking pass stamped at the meeting.) If you’ve never attended a Parks Board (or other city) meeting, this is a great one to start with. Sign up to speak when you arrive.
This simple, side-by-side comparison of the neighborhood/environmental group supported Rewild Zilker plan versus the City consultant’s draft Zilker Commercial, Development, and Parking Plan supported by park concessioners and wanna-be concessioners lays out the key differences in these competing plans for the future of Zilker Park. You can also read more, including the FAQs, on the RewildZilker.org website.
We will have a handout at the meeting as well. If you cannot attend, you can email one or more of the Parks Board members at their official Board email addresses here. You can also live stream the meeting on the City’s ATXN public meeting channel.
If you love Barton Springs and Zilker Park we need your participation in the process over the coming weeks and months, starting this coming Monday.
