I would like to file my comments in opposition to the development on Case Number C8-2016-0247, the Pioneer Crossing Section 19 Preliminary Plan. This development concerns me very much because it is right behind my backyard, which has a severe slope down to the level of ground where this development will be built. The land underneath the current homes on Church Canyon (including my own) has extremest soft soil. My house was built in 2006 and the foundation has already shifted and is causing cracks in my foundation, in the walls and ceiling, and on the tile throughout my house. I’m very concerned that the breaking up of the land and soil behind my house for this development will cause further erosion of the land underneath my house, causing further slippage, and further issues with the foundation of my home. This is not just happening to my home, but I know of several homes on my street alone that have had to have expensive foundation repair. Unless Continental Homes of Texas plans to shore up the soil erosion to prevent further movement of soil happening from the current homeowners on Church Canyon Drive, I fear that further soil displacement behind d me will cause further damage to my home. I have attached photos of the cracks in my …

Art in Public Places City of Austin Cultural Arts Division 201 East 2nd St. 0 Austin, Texas 78701 512.974.7700 / aipp@austintexas.gov Prospectus Project: Georgian Acres Neighborhood Park Project, District 4 Artwork Budget: $34,000 Project Summary The City of Austin Art in Public Places (AIPP) program of the Cultural Arts Division, Economic Development Department seeks to commission a permanent exterior public artwork that reflects the rich cultural diversity and distinguishing natural environment of the Georgian Acres community within the neighborhood’s new 5- acre, wooded park. Project Background The Georgian Acres Neighborhood is located in north Austin. It is bordered by Lamar Boulevard to the west, I35 to the east, East Runderberg Lane to the north, and 183 to the south. It is a diverse residential area with young families as well as older residents. Georgian Acres lies within an area of the city’s urban core that (until the last decade or so) was largely unplanned. The neighborhood and the adjacent North Lamar area were annexed into the city limits between 1945 and 1984 (City of Austin, 2010, p. 12). In 2006, Austin City Council acted to begin the planning process for Georgian Acres and North Lamar (City of Austin, 2010, p. 1). Together, these two areas constituted the North Lamar Combined Neighbor- hood Planning Area (NLCNPA) under the City’s design. The NLCNPA is approximately 1,297 acres of urban neighborhood with many suburban features (City of Austin, 2010, p. 12-13). The area is marked by single- family, single-story, ranch-style homes and multifamily housing units (i.e. apartments). Most of the NLCNPA’s commercial development is located around its periphery and includes automobile-oriented, industrial-type, and travel-related (hotels, motels, etc.) establishments as well as strip malls and various restaurants. Historically, Georgian Acres was the territory of the Tonkawa and Nʉmʉnʉʉ (Comanche) (Temprano, 2019). The area’s primary natural feature—Little Walnut Creek and its tributaries—was the site of clashes between indigenous peoples and early European immigrants (City of Austin, 2010, p. 12). The creek bed was later used by farmers and ranchers for its water and fertile soil. In response to threatening erosion, parts of the creek’s banks were stabilized in 1995. The creek is located less than a mile north of the Georgian Acres Neighborhood Park plot. Georgian Acres Neighborhood Park AIPP Project Prospectus March 2020 Page 1 of 8 Since 1990, the NLCNPA has become a neighborhood rich in cultural and racial/ethnic diversity (City of Austin, …

Art in Public Places | Cultural Arts Division Economic Development Department | City of Austin 5202 E. Ben White, Suite 400, Austin, TX 78741 512.974.7700 | aipp@austintexas.gov PROCESS SUMMARY Holly Shores Mural Restoration Phase II ART IN PUBLIC PLACES PROJECT PROJECT SUMMARY The City of Austin Art in Public Places (AIPP) program of the Cultural Arts Division, Economic Development Department, seeks to direct select Arte Texas to contract with original artist Ramon Maldonado to restore the existing murals at Martin Pool.

The mural and the surrounding community engagement activities will connect to the identity and history of the neighborhood in the Eastside as part of implementing the Edward Rendon Holly Shores Master Plan. The total budget available for this project is $20,000. This commission will continue to contribute to the preservation of the neighborhood’s culture and directly enrich the viewer through this unique civic, cultural, and ethnic learning opportunities. The experience of the mural restoration will engage the community in dialogue, creative learning, and participatory arts activities. The work will include capturing oral histories and video to help tell the historic and evolving story of this East Side Barrio. ARTWORK GOALS The AIPP program seeks to commission works of art of redeeming quality that advance public understanding of visual art and enhance the aesthetic quality of public places.

Memo to Council and Mayor_12M Creative Space Bond_April_3_2020 original pdf

Thumbnail of the first page of the PDF
Page 1 of 3 pages

MEMORANDUM TO: FROM: Mayor and City Council Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, Acting Director Economic Development Departmen DATE: April 3, 2020 SUBJECT: $12M Createe Space Bond Stdff Recmrnendaton or Acquisition Process Proposition B of the 2018 Bond package requested voter approval to fund the acquisition of libraries, museums, and cultural facilities. This package included $12 million in funding earmarked for creative space acquisition and improvements. Upon successful passage of this proposition, City Council Resolution No. 20180809-061 directed the City Manager to recommend “a proposed process, description, and criteria for Creative Space Acquisition and lmprovements...developed in consultation with the Arts and Music Commissions and in compliance with the use of bond funds”. Since these bond funds are part of the bond proposition that authorized funding for community and cultural facilities, libraries, museums, and cultural arts facilities of the City, the City must use the funds in a manner consistent with the rest of the funding and not for economic development. With Council guidance in mind, the Arts and Music Commissions convened a Joint Working Group July 2018 through November 2019 to solicit community input and vet options with Economic Development Department (EDD) staff and the Community Arts Stabilization Trust—subject-matter experts retained to provide guidance—to efficiently and effectively program the bond funds for creative space. Both Music and Arts Commissions unanimously passed the recommendations of the Joint Working Group on January 6 and 9, 2020, respectively. As the Joint Working Group conducted its work, EDD staff convened representatives from the Equity Office, Law, Real Estate, and Purchasing Departments over several meetings to determine the best method for acquiring creative space with these bond dollars, considering the proposition language approved by the voters, as well as the following general concepts related to these bonds: Projects owned and operated by the City, or by a nonprofit operator under contract with the City consistent with stated bond proposition purpose, are more likely to be approved by the State of Texas Attorney General, rather than projects operated by for-profit entities to the benefit of those entities. Projects that ate not owned by the City present a greater potential for legal challenges and would need stringent review by bond counsel. > These particular bonds for creative space were not approved for economic development purposes. Therefore, the process, description, and criteria should focus on creating long-term City assets that can be used for creative spaces over many decades by the community. …

Message to cultural contractors FY20 and FY21 4.7.20 original pdf

Thumbnail of the first page of the PDF
Page 1 of 3 pages

Dear Cultural Contractors, As the implications of COVID-19 unfold, we know that the shocks of this "new normal" are severe and unanticipated for you as indeed they are for us all, professionally and personally. Earlier today, during the City Council Work Session, economist Jon Hockenyos from TXP presented an update on the FY20 and FY21 financial projections. To access archived recordings of the sessions please visit: http://www.austintexas.gov/page/atxn-video-archive. While the City’s emergency reserves are strong and the economic recovery response is developing as quickly as possible, there is an undeniable financial impact for the City budget and all Austinites at this time. As information on City-wide economic relief efforts become available, you can find these resources posted at http://www.austintexas.gov/small-business-resources. We also strongly encourage you to consider your eligibility for federal resources provided through the CARES Act. For more information on these programs visit: https://www.sba.gov/funding-programs/loans/coronavirus-relief-options In response to this unprecedented situation, we want to share some important updates with you regarding your Cultural Funding. Below you will find: Information on the FY21 application • • Helpful amendments to your FY20 contract • Update on FY20 Community Initiatives April 27th application FY21 Application Deadline We know that the FY21 application process is top of mind for all of you. With all of the uncertainty facing us, it is difficult to conceive of “business as usual.” In response to the budget projections presented to City Council, it is clear that we need to adjust our own processes to better respond to the likely impact for our cultural contractors. With this in mind we are delaying the FY21 application deadline. A new deadline will be announced in the coming weeks. We will ensure that all applicants have at least 4 weeks to submit and/or revise application materials. At this time, we suggest that you pause any work in your FY21 ZoomGrants applications. For those of you who have already submitted an application, it will remain in the system and no additional work is needed right now. This does not mean FY21 programming or the application is closed. We are currently planning to administer the FY21 Bridge Year as approved by the Arts Commission, but the major events of recent weeks have significantly impacted our ability to plan for next fiscal year. Once more information about FY21 funding projections is available, we will share with all of you those updates and the new application deadline. FY20 …
