No activity on new corridors
Friday, September 2, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano
Amendments to Austin’s Imagine Austin comprehensive plan were not heard yesterday by City Council, which opted to postpone the changes instead. Council postponed the amendments to the Oct. 6 meeting, citing well-founded fears that the Sept. 22 meeting will run long enough with the scheduled rezoning of the Grove at Shoal Creek planned unit development. As the Austin Monitor has reported, the proposed “activity corridor” designation for a piece of Guadalupe Road has garnered a bit of controversy, which Council Member Greg Casar seems more than ready to learn about. He said that he would be interested in hearing why the Central Austin Neighborhood Planning Advisory Committee isn’t so keen on the moniker, adding, “It seems to me that if we are going to have activity corridors, that’s the one that already looks like one.”
