City receives EPA grant for planning

Thursday, February 26, 2015 by Mark Richardson

The City of Austin has received a grant to help create a plan for development in the Burnet-Anderson Corridor. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency selected the city and Capital Metro from among 121 applicants to receive a Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities grant. The city will use the funds to hold a workshop to discuss equitable housing, stable commercial districts and affordability along the Burnet-Anderson Corridor. The EPA grant is designed to “stimulate smart growth and sustainable approaches that protect the environment, improve public health, create jobs, expand economic opportunity, prepare for the effects of climate change, and improve overall quality of life.” More information can be found here.
