Lamar burnet study open houseThe City of Austin team that has been putting together a plan for changes to Burnet Rd will present their initial findings and proposals at an open house on Thursday, January 19, 10 AM to 7 PM, at Crestview United Methodist Church (1300 Morrow St, in the Fellowship Hall.)
The open house will also include information on proposed changes to N Lamar north of 183.
The study results will be used to define short-, medium- and long-term projects.  The short-term projects may be included in an upcoming bond package.  Team members have warned that not everything can be top priority, but there was strong neighborhood feedback last year to fill in sidewalk gaps along Burnet and on the first block of streets leading to Burnet.
The results of the study will also allow Sustainable Neighborhoods to finalize a plan for planting up to 50 more sidewalk trees along Burnet Rd this spring.
