Harper-Madison seeking grand plan

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 by Jo Clifton

District 1 Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison has given her colleagues plenty to think about in an 11-page resolution directing the city manager to develop a process and scope for a comprehensive long-range plan for the eastern crescent. The plan should take into account how the city might encourage equitable transit-oriented development, job stability and high-quality public spaces. And she wants staff members to figure out how to pay for that. The resolution does mention Travis County, the expo center and the Austin Rodeo, but Council Member Jimmy Flannigan said at Tuesday’s work session that he would be providing some additional language related to Travis County. Several Council members, including Alison Alter, had other questions and perhaps they will get more answers at Thursday’s meeting.
