ANC General Membership Meeting June 28, 2017

Dear Members Representatives,
The ANC meeting will be this coming Wednesday, June 28 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! A link to the agenda can be found here.

We have Council Member Ann Kitchen planning to speak about one of her passions–transit, in particular, high capacity transit! Following that , Dr. Paul Cruz, the superstar Superintendent of the Austin Independent School District will investigate how CodeNEXT will impact future schools in Austin. We have a resolution rollout about property rights and due process for consideration with Ali Baucom from the Shepherd Mountain Neighborhood as the presenter. A major portion of the program will be focused on CodeNEXT mapping for transect and non-transect zones proposed around the City. William Burkhardt, an architect from the Bouldin Neighborhood, will present some interesting renditions of maps. ANC Executive Committee Members, Linda Bailey and Wayne Shipley will present a 10 step approach to CodeNEXT mapping with 2 instructive videos that are available on YouTube. The evening will be topped off with a presentation from another stellar educator, Dr. Collette Pierce Burnette, who serves as the new President of Huston-Tillotson University. You won’t want to miss any of these presentations, so we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday night!
 
(Remember that CodeNEXT mapping input is due by July 7 to the City Staff.)

Best,
Mary Ingle

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.

Best,
Mary Ingle

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 ancweb.org
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!
Cheers,
Mary Ingle
