ANC Agenda 042617

The Austin Neighborhoods Council (ANC) is Austin’s only comprehensive representative of the City’s neighborhood associations. More than 40 years old, ANC consists of nearly 100 member neighborhood associations representing hundreds of thousands individual residents all across Austin.

Dear ANC Member Representatives,

It is that time again for another Austin Neighborhoods Council General Membership Meeting, Wednesday, April 26 7- 8:50 PM, 721 Barton Springs Road; Meet and Greet at 6:30 PM. Of course, we have a packed agenda with “taxing” subjects at hand. Marya Crigler, the Travis County Chief Appraiser and Bruce Elfant, the Travis County Tax Assessor will be our guests, as they are annually, to explain how to protest one tax appraisal and other tax related questions.
Since we have been inundated with CodeNEXTmaps of our neighborhoods recently, the Honorable Laura Morrison will be giving us more “pearls of wisdom” about the new draft Land Development Code and its foibles on the heels of Mayor Pro Ten Tovo’s carte blanche presentation. Jim Duncan, the former COA Director of Planning and the chair of the Citizen’s Advisory Group for CodeNEXT will have a great power point with maps and pointers for how to decipher the new draft code.
We have 2 ANC resolutions up for a vote:
1. Resolution on the Austin Police Department DNA Laboratory,  and
2. the Resolution Supporting the Removal of TXDOT Logo Signs on Austin Scenic Roadways up for a vote. Be sure to check the website for those resolutions
The ANC Executive Committee has been working diligently on Strategic Initiatives for 2017, and they would like to share these 4 items with the General membership on Wednesday night, too.
Additionally, we need to address and ratify with a vote the appointment of a “new” President due to David King’s departure to the Zoning and Platting Commission. Plus, there will be a “rollout” of an ANC bylaw amendment- re: Article 5, Section B. Responsibilities.
I look forward to seeing all of you on Wednesday night, April 26, 2017 at the next ANC meeting, 7 PM!
Mary Ingle
