2017 Barton Hills Neighborhood Survey

Hi Neighbors

Hope everyone is enjoying our wonder spring!

The BHNA has put together a survey where we would like your input on the neighborhood association and related neighborhood events. We are trying to make our association as user friendly as possible and trying to get as many Barton Hills residents involved by coming to the quarterly meetings and our neighborhood sponsored events such as the Greenbelt Guardian workdays, 4th of July, School Park workdays, etc.

As you know we are not in a home owners association (with much larger mandatory dues) so our voluntary neighborhood nassociation really counts on the very small yearly $10 donation and of course we would like to get all approximate 1100 households signed up as members, regardless of the amount you and your family are able or willing to participate.

This survey will be post on the website, nexdoor, and the upcoming newsletter. We are four weeks out from the April 25th quarter BHNA meeting, so we are hoping to have a large amount of survey input to be able to report back at the meeting, as well as posting general results on the online forums.

As noted on the bottom of the survey we would like to know who you are and all participants will be kept confidential.

Please let us know what you think of the BHNA and what we can do to make it better for you!

Due to inclement weather on March 5, the Zilker Kite Festival was rescheduled for March 12.

Hi Neighbors,

The Zilker Kite Festival is in one week on March 5th starting at 10am going until 5pm. I have attached all the information provided by the Austin Parks Department.

Barton Springs Rd will be closed starting at 7am that Sunday March 5th from Sterzing to the Mopac access Rd. See attached map.

Neighborhood no parking will be similar to ACL festival. Namely one side of the street will be no parking from Hollow Creek to the southern Deerfoot Trail. See attached map.

Please dial 311 for any issues or complaints related to the event, whether sound or parking related.

The Moss Fest will be holding a children’s concert during the kite festival from 10am to approximately 1:30pm at Lou Neff point which is North East corner of the park (where Blues on the Green and the main ACL stage is located). The Barton Hills Elementary Choir will be performing at 10am.

This is one of my favorite Austin festivals so hopefully we have a nice sunny day and a strong wind so all the kites will be airborne!

Hope to see you down there!

David Poisson
BHNA President
