Important City Election May 1, 2021

Austin citizens will be voting to change the charter of the City of Austin on May 1, 2020. Early voting begins April 19th. Requests for mail-in ballots must be received at the county by April 20th. For information on ballots and election sites go to the Travis County elections site.

For a neighborhood discussion of some of the proposed amendments, please attend the SRCC general membership meeting on April 20th at 7pm. All attendees must pre-register.

Among the 8 proposed amendments on the ballots is a proposal to completely change how the city will be run, whether by a council and mayor as it is today, or by a “strong” mayor, who would be directly in charge of most departments and have substantial power over rule-making.

Information on the proposed amendments can be found at:

South Congress Parking Strategy Public Draft – Spring 2021

The Austin Department of Transportation has released its Public Draft of the South Congress Parking Strategy. Admittedly, the parking and mobility challenges in our area are the result of decades of economic success on South Congress Avenue. The goals are to create safe mobility and to provide adequate parking for everyone. Phased implementation is scheduled for Spring 2021.  You may view the Draft here.

Annual SRCC Election for 2021-2022

Tuesday, April 20, 2021
7pm via Zoom
Nominations are open!

Once again, we gather (albeit virtually) to cast votes for the South River City Citizens Officers and Area Coordinators who comprise our Executive Committee. This is the team that we as a neighborhood elect to represent us at City of Austin council meetings, board, and commission hearings. They will govern the association and work diligently on our behalf for the next year!

We have formed a nominating committee who will seek qualified candidates for office, confirm their willingness to serve, and then report their findings and recommendations. Nominations will not be accepted from the floor during the meeting. Anyone wishing to run for office must fill out an online form ahead of time indicating their interest. The deadline to submit nominations is April 9. Here is a link to the form:

ELECTION NOTE: March 23 was the deadline to become a new member and vote at the general membership meeting, but if your membership has not lapsed more than two years, you can pay your dues before the meeting and vote. Of course, we encourage your membership in the neighborhood association at any time.
