Presenter/Guest: Megan Lasch, Saigebrook Development, 830.330.0762, email@example.com (10 min + 10 min Q&A)
7. 8:15 Consideration for use of AISD Blunn Creek headwaters tract. Possibilities include an AISD teaching farm and a ropes course for APD. This idea would transform water quality ponds at the end of Alpine Rd E into LID (low impact development) natural areas that could be used for education and training AND bring back wildlife to this area.
Presenter/Guest: Laura Gass, Architect and Project Manager with Square One Consulting, firstname.lastname@example.org (10 min + 10 min Q&A)
8. 8:35 A Restrictive Covenant was signed for the property at Woodland and I-35 where the storage facility is being constructed (formerly Reagan Signs property). Part of the agreement was that the driveway on Woodland was to be configured to require that vehicles exiting the facility take a left onto Woodland, to steer traffic away from the neighborhood. The current construction does not appear to have taken this into consideration.
Presenter: Marc Davis, SRCC Planning & Zoning Committee Member (and former SRCC President) (10 min)
9. 8:45 There are bills before the state Legislature which would overrule Austin’s STR ordinances; the bills would eliminate requirements as to the number of STR’s permitted in a neighborhood plus the ordinance phasing out non owner-occupied STRs in 2022. These bills are the same as the ones which died in committee in the 2017 session. A hearing is scheduled for this Thursday morning at the capital. In 2017 homeowners from all over Texas testified against the proposed legislation and it ultimately never came up for a vote in the House.
Presenter/Guest: Mike Polston, Board member Northwest Austin Civic Association, Polston.email@example.com (10 min)
