David Todd will present a resolution regarding the demolition application for the property located at 1409 Alta Vista and its impact on the tree canopy in our neighborhood. [VOTE]

Resolution proposed by the Parks and Environment Committee of the South River City Citizens Neighborhood Association for consideration at the June 18, 2024 meeting of the Association:
Whereas the Travis Heights-Fairview Park Historic District (the District) has been
recognized by the U.S. Department of the Interior;

Whereas the property at 1409 Alta Vista (the Property), constructed in 1926, is
considered a contributing and protected property within the Travis Heights-Fairview
Park Historic District;

Whereas the application to the National Park Service for certification of the District
makes numerous references to the importance of the “landscape”, “tree canopy”, and
“dense vegetation” (see page 11) and use of design traditions espoused by Andrew
Jackson Downing and Frederick Law Olmstead (see page 13);

Whereas the Property has seven significant trees that are integral to the character of
the Property, the context of the street and neighborhood, and the nature of the District;

Whereas demolition of the existing structure on the Property, and the proposed
construction of two to three densely-packed structures on the Property, risks damage or
outright removal of those trees on the Property;

Whereas the Historic Landmark Commission of the City of Austin is reviewing
application number H-2023-043027 to proceed with demolition and new construction
on the Property;

Therefore, be it resolved by the Association, through vote of its general membership on
June 18, 2024, opposes the release of the demolition permit proposed under application
number HR-2023-043027, unless and until the owner can demonstrate plans to
adequately protect the trees on the Property.

10. 8:15 Mobility Updates

  1. Discuss parking sign changes underway and permit process for residents and guests.
