Open house for Holly Point project
Monday, April 22, 2019 by Tai Moses
The Trail Foundation and Austin Parks and Recreation are holding a public open house to kick off the planning process for the Holly Point project. Neighbors, hikers, community rec groups and all other interested parties are invited to come and help design a vision for the site. The plan is to transition the decommissioned Holly Power Plant into parkland that will enhance existing open space, expand the view and use of the waterfront for fishing or recreation, restore the shoreline wetland habitat, place decking under the heritage oaks, and make other improvements that will benefit the entire community. Coffee and breakfast tacos (while they last) will be served and the event is kid-friendly, with some fun activities planned for the little ones. The Trail Foundation will give a short presentation explaining the process and inviting the community’s vision for the site plan. Saturday, May 18, 9 a.m.-noon, Loraine Camacho Activity Center, 35 Robert T. Martinez Jr. St. Can’t make it? Fill out a short survey online.
