ANC May General Membership Meeting–Wednesday May 24, 2017

Dear Members Representatives,
The ANC meeting for May will be this coming Wednesday, May 24 from 7- 9 PM at 721 Barton Springs Road. Meet and Greet is from 6:30-7:00 PM. The upcoming meeting of the Austin Neighborhoods Council will be an exciting one! 

Here is the agenda. With the State Legislature in session, legislation concerning Sanctuary Cities has been in the hot seat. We have several speakers addressing this “controversial”  Sanctuary City issue- on deck is Council Member Greg Casarwith Mayor Adler to present the City side of this issue. Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez will address us, as well. On a related topic of “forgotten citizens”, we have scheduled UT Professor Ricardo Ainslie who has been working on a new documentary about veterans and their issues. On down the road, Annick Beaudet from the City’s Transportation Department will continue the discussion about Street Impact fees with a peak at the maps which should impact our neighborhoods. For the CodeNEXT placeholder, Karen McGraw from the Planning Commission will give us a well informed perspective on CodeNEXT. The Neighborhood Story feature about “Traffic”- a topic we all know intimately, will be Linda Bailey from the western neighborhood of Glenlake. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday night!

ANC will also be hosting a mapping workshop on Thursday, May 25, at 721 Barton Springs Road from 7- 9 PM. Please plan to attend this workshop.

Mary Ingle
ANC President
