City selected for EPA grant
Wednesday, February 11, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
The City of Austin, in collaboration with the Capital Metro Transportation Authority, was selected to receive a technical assistance grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. According to a press release from the city, “The grant will support a workshop focused on bringing together City leaders, residents, business owners and stakeholders to discuss equitable solutions as part of the Burnet-Anderson Corridor planning process kicking off later this year. The project area is Burnet Road, a high-frequency transit corridor along the MetroRapid Route 803 from 45th Street to Highway 183 and Anderson Lane from MoPac to the MetroRail Red Line.” The press release notes that although the initial assistance will focus on the Burnet-Anderson Corridor, the strategies that result from that project will be used in future planning across the city.
