City launches historic survey of East Austin

Monday, January 25, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

Over the next year, the city of Austin will be conducting a historic survey of East Austin. The survey will be conducted by Hardy, Heck, Moore, Inc., which has contracted with the Historic Preservation Office to photograph and document structures to identify potential historic buildings and districts. The survey will be conducted in the area bounded by I-35 to the west, the Colorado River to the south, Pleasant Valley Road and the MetroRail line to the east and Manor Road to the north. According to a press release from the city about the survey, “Throughout the year-long process, city staff will hold public meetings to solicit feedback and gather information from residents and property owners within the survey area. Residents are encouraged to share their stories or interesting facts about a home or structure with the photographers or at a public meeting.”
