Bluebonnet Hills headed back to HLC
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Due to procedural errors, the Historic Landmark Commission has recommended the Bluebonnet Hills historic preservation district on three separate occasions. Next Monday, it will consider it a fourth time. Why? Because after reviewing the posting of the third trip to the commission, the Austin Law Department was concerned that posting and the hearing had not been broad enough. At that meeting, commissioners considered the “non-recommendation” of the green-building program, which was initially missing. Since then, the department has determined that the commission should have considered the whole case for a third time, not just that one missing component. So, next Monday, the Historic Landmark Commissioners will do just that. The homecoming event at HLC will not impact the recommendation of the Planning Commission or City Council’s first-reading approval last Thursday.
