Members of the community are invited to an open house.
The Planning and Zoning Department has released the draft North Shoal Creek Neighborhood Plan. The draft plan is the result of an extensive planning process which included public meetings, online surveys, and small group discussions.
Members of the community are invited to an Open House to review and comment on the draft plan. The Open House will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in the Pillow Elementary School cafeteria, 3025 Crosscreek Drive. The draft plan is also available for review and comment online at http://austintexas.gov/department/north-shoal-creek.
The North Shoal Creek Neighborhood Plan will guide future City of Austin investments as well as the form, location and character of future development in the approximately 1-square mile area bounded by Burnet Road to the east; Anderson Lane to the south; MoPac Expressway to the west; and U.S. 183 to the north. The planning area has approximately 3,700 residents.
The North Shoal Creek Neighborhood Plan is guided by the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan’s vision of creating a city of complete communities. These are communities in which residents have convenient access to their daily needs, such as goods, services, parks and jobs. While Imagine Austin articulates a citywide vision for Austin, the North Shoal Creek Neighborhood Plan provides a neighborhood-scale plan that accounts for local conditions.
The City initiated the Neighborhood Planning Program in 1997 to preserve and enhance the quality of life and character of neighborhoods – mostly located in Austin’s urban core. Fifty-three neighborhood planning areas have completed the planning process and have adopted neighborhood plans.
Following community review and input, the Plan will be submitted for formal adoption to the Planning Commission and City Council. For more information about upcoming meetings, contact Jeff Engstrom at 512-974-1621.
