Environmental Commission Update from the Rewilding TeamSo many of you showed up to speak and your speeches were SO GOOD! They brought many of us to tears. We cannot overstate our gratitude to be in this fight with you. We simply couldn't do it without you. Thank you, thank you.
We were also unexpectedly joined by four powerful women advocates including three legendary former City of Austin Commissioners and a recently named Rising Star (we can see why!)
The Environmental Commission listened closely to our concerns (staying past 12am!) and gave us a couple of big wins:
The Zilker Vision Plan still has to go to the Design Commission (still not scheduled) and then back to the Parks Board for final approval April 24. The Consultants say then it's off to the City Council in late Spring, early Summer.
Your Wild Rewilding Team
Please mark your calendars for April 24th Parks Board Meeting. We will need a strong showing! We will have another community zoom meeting leading up to it. We will send details next week.
The Environmental Commission staff is still working on the final recommendations and the complete video of the meeting. We will let you know when they are available but they will be posted in the next few days HERE. The meeting video is complete until 11:50 pm when the recording stopped but you can still watch the amazing speakers and most of the comments from the Commissioners. Very informational so please try to watch.
