Well, that should make the meeting shorter?

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

At its last meeting, City Council passed a resolution to study eastward-radiating Capitol View Corridors, but there remained one outstanding detail to sort. Worried that the study could impact future development of Brackenridge Hospital, the “Rosewood Corridor” that would extend over the site was put on pause. According to a post on the City Council Message Board from Council Member Ora Houston’s office, that has now been worked out. Her office wrote, “In conversation with Central Health, it has been agreed to expedite the Rosewood Park Capitol View Corridor study to allow Central Health to release their request for proposal by the end of March/first of April. The amendment will say: ‘…expediting the results and recommendations for the study of the Rosewood Park Corridor to return to Council no later than the March 23rd 2017 Austin City Council meeting with an analysis of the surveyed coordinates and the spatial impact on the properties within the proposed corridor.'”
