South Central Waterfront Walkabout on Jan 11th, 10am-12

There’s a new South Central Waterfront Plan Initiative launching in January 2013. The South Central Waterfront Plan will establish a vision and provide a cohesive set of recommendations to guide public and private development over the next 20-plus years.

The Plan will help ensure that privately developed properties and publicly financed amenities will work in tandem to create a beautiful public realm that supports a lively, attractive pedestrian environment, creates great public spaces, and enhances connections to and along the waterfront.

To kick off this whole process there will be a city organized  walkabout on January 11th to help familiarize everyone with the properties in question and the scope of the project.  You can read all the details here:

Here are a few details:

  • 505 Barton Springs Road. Google directions:
  • Meet in the lobby of One Texas Center building (Barton Springs Rd. & South First St.).
  • The event will take place rain or shine.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes. Be prepared to walk 1.5 miles outside for about 2 hours.
  • Family-friendly! Pets allowed out on the trail. Bike and vehicle parking available.
  • Light refreshments will be provided.
