The City of Austin Art in Public Places (AIPP) program seeks to commission a professional visual artist, or artist team, to design and fabricate mosaic artwork for the Little Stacy Neighborhood Park.
The goal of the Little Stacy AIPP Project is to select an artist/artist team who will design mosaic artwork that:
–Creates a visible, aesthetically pleasing experience at the entrance(s) of the park that draws inspiration from the moments of play occurring within;
–responds to current nearby mosaic artwork;
–integrates the artwork into the natural setting (especially Blunn Creek) of the park;
–is easily maintained and vandal resistant in an exterior environment; and
–contributes to the depth/breadth of the City of Austin’s public art collection.
Possible artwork locations include utilizing improved signage infrastructure at both North East and South West entrances and/or locating art in proximity to those entrance points. Final artwork location will be determined by the selected artist in conjunction with City staff and community stakeholders.
See this link for more details and to apply.

Travis Heights Elementary School is having its first annual Rummage Sale on Saturday, March 2nd, 8 AM – 12 Noon
Did you know that over 100 of our students are refugees from Asia, the Middle East, and Africa? With this sale we hope to provide our THES families access to high quality items they might need at affordable prices. We’ll also raise funds for our Parent Support Specialist’s important work. The PSS is similar to a social worker and helps our many economically disadvantaged families. Funds raised will also be used for things like clothing, feminine hygiene packs, and bus passes.

Travis Heights Elementary School thanks you for your support!
The short “sidewalk to nowhere” at the west end of St. Edwards Drive in front of the university’s shipping/receiving facility is being extended thanks to taxpayer dollars. The Capital Improvement Project (CIP) will build a new sidewalk to join the existing sidewalk three blocks east of Eastside Dr. The new sidewalk will connect to the sidewalk in front of the Holy Cross Brothers residence across from the Blunn Creek Nature Preserve.
As part of this project, a sidewalk will also be installed in the near future on Carnarvon Lane. These projects, while paid for by tax dollars, also benefit the university whose overflow parking onto Sherwood Oaks streets in recent years has increased since the school began charging students, faculty and staff to park on campus. Why pay to park when you can park for free in the neighborhood?
And, at the east end of St. Edwards Dr., TXDOT has delivered its long promised correction to the southbound IH35 entrance ramp. The ramp was built at a right angle to St. Edwards Dr. when the HWY. 71/290 flyover was built. According to the Transportation Criteria Manual, the location of the old entrance ramp was too close to the flyover entrance causing very dangerous merging.
The new entrance ramp will be further north and according to TXDOT, better aligned with the new exit ramp north of Oltorf. To access the new southbound IH35 entrance ramp, Sherwood Oaks neighbors will need to go to Oltorf. The right turn lane onto the southbound frontage road at Oltorf has returned after TXDOT consultants heard complaints from SRCC members at its December meeting. While the reconfigured frontage road at St. Edwards Dr. limits neighbors’ easy access to 71/290, the lack of access has already proven to reduce traffic cutting through Sherwood Oaks streets from S. Congress to IH35. YAY!
