Lamar Beach meeting to be held next month

Friday, September 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Next month, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department will hold its first public meeting for the Lamar Beach Master Plan. The Oct. 14 event, which takes place in the Austin High School cafeteria, will begin with an open house at 6:30 p.m. followed by an hourlong interactive presentation at 7 p.m. According to the city’s website, “The project team will lead the interactive presentation and mapping exercise to capture input from participants, including opportunities and challenges of the planning area.” City Council passed a resolution in June 2014 to initiate the master planning process for the area, which consists of about 65 acres of park bounded by Lady Bird Lake to the south, the railroad tracks above the YMCA Town Lake to the north, Austin High School to the west and North Lamar Boulevard to the east.
