bhna-general-meeting

Hi Neighbors,

Below is the agenda for the BHNA meeting coming up in two weeks on October 25th. Of note we will have the project directors of the traffic calming/bike lane projects speaking as a follow up to the project. We will also have a representative from the new Bluebonnet Studio apartment talking about their completed affordable housing apartment at South Lamar and Del Curto.

Last but not least, it will be elections for the 2017 BHNA executive committee. At this point we have the Vice President and Austin Neighborhood Council positions open.

This is your chance to become involved in our neighborhood and continue to make it the best in Austin. We have a very politically active and progressive neighborhood, and a great group of people on the executive committee working for the neighborhood. For all of those who feel things should or could be different, this is your chance to contribute and help direct the future of our neighborhood. Step up to the plate and join us. It is painless !!!

See you on the 25th!


BHNA President

July 26 BHNA General Meeting Agenda

bhna-general-meeting

Hi Folks,

I wanted to post the upcoming July 26th meeting agenda in advance. I have been fielding a lot of complaints from neighborhood residents who have been either directly or indirectly impacted by the Barton Creek greenbelt use this spring and summer.

Although it seems the problem is now remedied by the creek drying up I thought it would be good to have officers from the Austin Police Department, Park Police Department and Austin Park Ranger come and give us a presentation outlining their jurisdiction regarding how they monitor and enforce activities in and around the creek, since our neighborhood has two public access points and a few non official access points.

This will be your chance to talk to these representatives about any issues you may have if you are affected by the public use at the greenbelt.

The meeting is at St. Mark’s Church. Dinner is at 6pm, meeting starts at 7pm.

Please come on out and be part of the neighborhood association!

See you there!


BHNA President

Barton Hills Drive is scheduled for routine street maintenance (resurfacing) in the next few months. By coordinating with this resurfacing, the Austin Transportation Department (ATD) has the opportunity to modify the street striping with little to no effect on project cost and duration. ATD is assessing restriping options that could improve safety and mobility for all road users.

Typical proposed striping along Barton Hills Drive will have a two-way protected bikeway on the west side of the street and a parking lane on the east side of the street as shown in Figure 1. Special design consideration will be given to improved pedestrian crossings in response to numerous requests from citizens.

BHD-lane-proposal

In order to add bicycle facilities on Barton Hills Drive, on-street motor vehicle parking will be prohibited at certain locations as listed below and in Figure 2. To relieve congestion on Barton Hills Drive during school pick-up and drop-off times, a westbound right turn lane will be added to facilitate entry into the elementary driveway. Homedale Drive will remain open to two-way traffic as listed below and in Figure 3. In addition, inorder to enable the construction of sidewalks on Briarcrest Drive, approximately 350 feet of the south side of Briarcrest Drive will have parking prohibited.

? Barton Hills Drive (from Robert E. Lee to Barton Skyway) – prohibit parking on the west side of the street.

BHD-FIG2

In order to ensure the most appropriate allocation of street space, ATD is seeking feedback from local residents and other users of this street prior to determining final plans. You can obtain additional information about this mobility project and provide feedback at an open house on Tuesday, June 28, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the library of Barton Hills Elementary School, 2108 Barton Hills Drive, Austin, TX 78704. Feedback based on local experience frequently results in improvements to initial project proposals. If necessary, modifications to this proposal can be made after input received at the open house. If you cannot attend this open house and have questions or comments, please contact Mike Schofield at 974-7834 or .
