It takes a village

Monday, April 2, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

At the most recent meeting, City Council passed a resolution asking city staff to evaluate land at 10414 McKalla Place as a potential site for a Major League Soccer stadium. Now the work begins. According to a March 30 memo from Economic Development Department Interim Director Rebecca Giello, her department is hard at work “assembling an interdepartmental / interagency team” to carry out the analysis demanded by the resolution. That analysis will rope in a number of departments, including: Economic Development, Planning and Zoning, Parks and Recreation, Austin Water, Public Works, Austin Fire, Austin Police, Transportation, the Corridor Program Office and Capital Metro. At the same time, a stakeholder process is being put together. According to the memo, a report on the proposed stadium will be ready for Council no later than June 1, 2018.
