BHNA General Meeting Tuesday Jan. 27


NEIGHBORS–BHNA meets Tuesday, January 27th, at St. Mark’s Church. As usual, we’ll serve dinner at 6:00 pm and start the BHNA meeting at 7:00 pm. The agenda:

1. Presentation on the South Lamar Corridor Study. Here’s your opportunity to tell the City what you think and/or want to ask the City about the problems the apartments being built on Lamar.

2, A dialog with District 5 City Council Member (and, coincidentally, Barton Hills resident) ANN KITCHEN about our and her priorities for District 5 for the next few years.

3. A discussion, but no action, on proposals for INCREASING INVOLVEMENT in BHNA decisions, including offering child care for attendees at BHNA meetings, online voting, or other measures.

4. A discussion, but no action, on whether Barton Hills should pursue approval of a NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN by the City of Austin.

The subject matter of this meeting is much more meaty than most, so if you’re deciding whether this is one you should make time for, I’m telling you that it is.

July 22 BHNA General Meeting


BHNA’s quarterly meeting is Tuesday the 22d at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Barton Hills Dr. We’ll serve dinner at 6:00pm and start the meeting at 7:00pm.

Mayoral candidate Steve Adler is joining us for dinner. He couldn’t attend the July 4th parade, as did candidates Sheryl Cole and Mike Martinez, so we’ll have the same opportunity to talk to him as we did the other two candidates.

We’ ll discuss traffic problems on Barton Hills Drive and the possibility of using various traffic calming techniques to address them. Apart from the proposal to close the school, I can’t think of a recent issue that affects us all more than this one.

Finally, we’ll also discuss proposals for how BHNA can spend the approximately $28,000 in our bank account to improve the neighborhood.

Please come and let your voice be heard. And remind your neighbors to come, too! I look forward to seeing you on the 22d.


BHNA President
