Zilker Park Working Group
On June 20, 2018, the City of Austin Environmental Commission passed a motion with recommendations relating to traffic, parking and environmental issues that arose as a result of the proposed Austin City Limits staging and parking area along Stratford Road.
On June 28, 2018, City Council passed a resolution to form a stakeholder group to address several issues related to Zilker Park:
- traffic and parking
- the Stratford Drive area used for ACL staging
- the Polo Fields (the “temporary” parking area across Barton Springs Road from the Botanical Garden)
- a Master Plan for the park
This stakehold group is known as the Zilker Park Working Group (ZPWG). Three members of the ZNA Executive Committee are on the ZPWG: ZNA Treasurer Bruce Wiland, ZNA Vice President (Parks and Environment) Gail Rothe, and ZNA Secretary James Russell. Bruce Wiland represents the Zilker Neighborhood Association, Gail Rothe represents City Council District 5, and James Russell represents the Trail of Lights Foundation and Austin Kite Festival.
