PARD holds meetings on Hancock’s future

Monday, October 26, 2020 by Tai Moses

As the Austin Monitor reported last week, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department is considering leasing the Hancock Golf Course to a private concession, while the Hancock Conservancy is pushing for the property to be turned into public parkland. The parks department has scheduled two virtual public meetings – Monday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. and Thursday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m. – to allow community members to weigh in on the future of the nine-hole course. Both meetings will follow the same agenda: PARD will “review feedback from the February 29 meeting and following survey, discuss the request for proposals process, and share additional opportunities for community input.” Register for either meeting here.
