Wednesday, September 7, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano
Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department and the board of the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center are inviting the public to a plática focused on the future 64 Rainey Street pocket park. The lot was dedicated as parkland in 2014. This year, City Council passed a resolution asking the project be refined though a community process. That will take place at the community meeting on Sept. 29 at the MACC Auditorium, 6-8:30 p.m. The city will also be distributing information and soliciting feedback at the MACC during the Viva México celebration on Sept. 17 and Austin Museum Day on Sept. 18.
