Hello, ZNA members and Zilker residents. You are cordially invited to a special called meeting of the ZNA general membership!
Special Called Meeting of ZNA Membership
Monday, August 24, 6:30-8:30 pm
Willenberg Hall, Faith United Methodist Church, 2701 South Lamar Blvd
The Executive Committee of the Zilker Neighborhood Association (ZNA) has called a special meeting of the general membership on Monday, August 24. We will consider ZNA’s participation in an effort to educate citizens regarding proposals to expand South MoPac and the potential negative impacts on the environment, Zilker Park, Austin High School, and neighborhoods. This is related to the Austin Neighborhoods Council resolution on South MoPac that members were asked to consider in June (see http://ancweb.org/about-anc/anc-resolutions/).
Members will be asked to consider and vote on
- a one-time donation of $3,000 to the Save Our Springs (SOS) Alliance educational campaign.
- a fundraiser to support efforts by SOS to require TxDOT to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement on the entire MoPAC improvement project.
The formal business meeting will end at 7:30 pm and will be followed by an update on the latest recommendations for the South Lamar Corridor Study. A representative of the Austin Transportation Department will be available to answer questions about the Study.
A brief update will be provided on improvements to address traffic and parking issues on Treadwell Street.
Hope to see you there!
