I hope that a good number of you will join us on this Saturday’s work day at the Homedale Trail entry. It definitely needs our TLC, and we will provide Maria’s tacos to help build stamina for the tasks, and tools and leaders to facilitate the work. You just come in your long shirt and pants and work shoes and with your collaborative spirit. We always have fun and feel accomplished as we survey our work afterwards.

The Austin Parks Foundation now has an easy sign up process, so please go to the website address :
to sign up under the Greenbelt Guardians listing. They will keep tabs on the contact information and we will do the rest.

Thank you for your support.

Austin City Limits Festival 2012


ACL is coming up on October 12-14.  You can start to see the beginnings…

This year there are additional officers in the Dedicated Neighborhood ROVING Patrol  10 officers and 1 sergeant (increased from 7 and 1), Roving 10 am until approximately 11 pm daily as well as 2 APD Officers (on Bikes) in the Barton Creek Greenbelt, 12pm-8pm.

The dial in number for ACL related response is (646) 578-8562. 

These officers are stationed and roving to be here in the area(s) impacted.

This year there are a number of streets that will have temporary No Parking zones that will be enforced by the police during ACL. The NP signs will be deployed on Wednesday and Thursday, October 10 and 11, but become enforceable Friday, October 12.

The streets with No Parking zones are shown on the attached map.

Please warn your neighbors. Only a small percentage of the population of the neighborhood is subscribed to this Yahoo Group. Parking within 30′ of the approach to a stop sign, within 15′ of a fire hydrant are illegal and will be enforced. Also, make sure when you park on the street that the right wheels of your vehicle are closest to the curb.

Please don’t put barriers in the street. It is public property and the police will ask you to remove them. I suggest placing orange cones along the curb, but not in the street.

The FAA allows the aerial advertisers. The city and C3 Presents have no control over them.

FAA low flying aircraft information

The San Antonio Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) is the office that would take complaints about safety violations. That number is (800) 292-2023. The FAA does not, however, take calls regarding nuisance complaints.  Nuisance/aircraft noise complaints would go to the Aviation Department. Stephen Dick would be the point of contact for those. His number is (512) 530-5541.

I strongly urge you to use this number to report parking and other violations: (646) 578-8562

See the bottom of this page for road closure info:

If you would like to volunteer to monitor traffic and parking we could always use your help. Contact John Luther or myself
