Community forum will address economic development in East Austin

Friday, August 28, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

The Travis County Commissioners Court, City Council and City Manager Marc Ott are teaming up to host the Spirit of East Austin community forum on Sept. 12. The public is invited to participate in small problem-solving groups, share ideas for equitable economic development and learn about current economic development efforts underway. Participants are also encouraged to share their own experiences and to bring photos, artwork or other objects relevant to their stories. Children will be welcome to join in supervised youth activities, and services for participants requiring assistance or language interpretation can be arranged beforehand. (Email barbara.shack@austintexas.gov or call 512-978-2100 by Sept. 9.) The event will take place at the Travis County Expo Center, 7311 Decker Lane, 9 a.m.-noon (doors open at 8:15 a.m.). To RSVP, go here.
