City Council to Vote on Neighborhood Planning for All of North Central Austin

City of Austin staff have placed an item on the consent agenda for the April 17th City Council meeting seeking approval for new neighborhood plans in the Rosedale, Allandale and North Shoal Creek neighborhoods, and for revised neighborhood plans in Brentwood, Crestview, Wooten and Highland neighborhoods.

Highland neighborhood is in District 4. Most of Rosedale and a portion of Allandale are in District 10. The other neighborhoods are in District 7.

Staff late last year approached the Rosedale, Allandale and North Shoal Creek neighborhood associations proposing a neighborhood plan process. Allandale NA expressed concerns and asked for a delay until more is known about the CodeNext process. The staff resolution acknowledges Allandale’s concerns, but recommends including those properties along Burnet and Anderson in the planning process regardless.

16. Approve a resolution directing the Planning Commission to consider a planning process and resulting plans for the North Central Austin Study Area which will create new neighborhood plans for the Rosedale, Allandale, and North Shoal Creek Neighborhood Planning Areas; revised plans for the Brentwood, Highland, Crestview, and Wooten Neighborhood Planning Areas; and corridor plans for Burnet Road from 45th Street to US 183 and Anderson Lane from Mopac to the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s railroad track. The boundaries of the study area are generally 35th/38th Street on the south; the Mopac Expressway/Loop 1 on the west; US 183/Anderson Lane on the north; and the eastern lot lines of Eastcress Street, Avenue G, and Twin Crest Drive, East Huntland Drive, Middle Fiskville Road, East Koenig Lane, and North Lamar Boulevard on the east.
