Pubic hearing on city comprehensive plan this Thursday, June 14

Austin Neighborhood's Council president, Steve Aleman, points to Burnet Road as an example of the type of growth encouraged by the City's proposed comprehensive plan, "Imagine Austin," that will stifle Austin's eccentric character.

An article, "Austin City Council approaches vote on overarching growth plan," by Marty Toohey in today's Austin American-Statesman, reports the City's comprehensive plan is on Thursday's City Council's agenda. The 197-page document is the culmination of a 2-year drafting process. The plan is intended to serve as a policy guide for the City's growth over the next 30 years. With regard to Burnet Road, the plan "calls for more aesthetically pleasing stretches of several-story buildings and blocks where people can get around by walking or taking a short ride."
