Council Member Brewster McCracken on Monday March 17 rebuffed a
proposal by ANA and two other North Central Austin neighborhood groups
to modify the City’s plan for Vertical Mixed Use (VMU) on Burnet Rd and
Anderson Ln.  McCracken hinted that modifications to VMU proposed in
the “Two Nodes” plan would not be acceptable to developers, who would
ignore VMU to do traditional commercial development.

All those living in Allandale should have received the flyer in last month’s newsletter – but for those who haven’t heard – save the date of April 6 for our 2nd Annual picnic in the park! We had a wonderful time last year and this year’s event is shaping up to be even more so. This is truly a neighborhood event that extends far beyond – invite your family and friends! Feel free to contact me should you have any questions! – Regards, Mary Jean
