Greenbelt Guardians Workday Sept. 27

Greenbelt Guardians logo
Greenbelt Fans,

We will have the opportunity to tend to our adopted Homedale trail area of the Greenbelt this coming Saturday, 9-27, starting at 8:30 am and working until noon.

We will be working in teams, from the entry trail head, to the rock flats and creek beds, and along a wooded auxiliary trail. Our focus will be on trail maintenance and repair, invasives management, and trash clean-up.

As is the tradition, the Barton Hills Neighborhood Association helps energize our work by funding tacos, and we provide team leaders and tools to execute the work. We hope to see lots of our neighbors out on the trail working with us! To register, go to the website and click on the tab for Public Lands Day.

Remember to wear closed toed shoes, long pants, bring a water bottle, and dress appropriately for the weather. We will provide tools, gloves, and water, but if you have favorite work gloves or tools, please bring them too.

In case of rain, projects will start one hour late. If rain persists, projects will begin at their original start time on Sunday.

Hope to see you on the trail!

National Night Out is Tuesday, October 7.  This is a time to turn on the outside lights, get together with neighbors to show your support for the elimination of crime in your neighborhood.  7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, October 7, 2014, residents are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, EMS, and firefighters.

Barton Hills has many traditional gatherings on this night.  Check out your street to see if there is a party planned.  To get a head start, join the Austin Police Department, Travis County Sheriff’s Office and other community partners for the 31st Annual National Night Out kickoff celebration on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mueller Airport Lake, 4550 Mueller Blvd (May show up on GPS as 4550 Mueller Central.)

The free event will have food, games, booths and live music by The Peterson Brothers Band. Additionally, this kickoff event will be a great opportunity for neighborhoods to “Stock Your Block” with informational pamphlets and brochures for National Night Out block parties on Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014.

Barton Hills residents are always supportive of crime prevention efforts.  Make this year the biggest Night Out ever.

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
