Project (SPaces into Places) Re Surfaced East Austin ​ 02.30.2020 ─ Raasin in the sun 1801 E 51st St, Suite 365 Austin, Texas 78723 ​ 1 Overview Resurfaced (Pilot) is a program initiative that explores creative strategies to activate underutilized urban spaces. As with many cities the size of Austin, surface parking and vacant lots have historically been unproductive in terms of serving the community versus benefiting vehicle parking for a good portion of the downtown and surrounding areas. Through Resurfaced, we work with the community and strategic partners to re-vitalize these spaces by making low-cost investments that activate the space NOW rather than waiting for big, long-term developments to take shape. These initiatives focus on the city as the ultimate user interface, where the community can experiment and enjoy unique locations filled with inspiring visual arts from local creative and begin dialog about how we can revive the multitude of surface lots and underutilized spaces, ultimately, ​turning spaces into places​. Mission Our mission is to serve the community through urban beautification projects that unite residents and combat neighborhood deterioration. Through the implementation of project resurfaced we will create opportunities for players of all skill levels, age, and background to engage as a community through the sport of soccer, while providing a place to showcase visual arts, community gardens to enrich the space, and incorporate community centered events. Vision An environmentally conscious community space for pick-up games,community gardens, visual arts, and community events. Goals 1. Now 2. Later Resurfaced Team 2 Land Development/Code Specialist: Kelan Robinson Landscape Architecture: Kim Harding (DWG) Landscape Architecture: Daniel Woodfroff (DWG) Construction Manager: Mark Rogers Programs and Facilities: Raasin McIntosh Media/Content Specialist: Kris San Resurfaced National Model (Click title or image) 3 ​ 1604 E. 12th Street 4 5 Environmental Benefits What 'the Landscape' can do: ● Will upgrade current compacted site to previous field (grass or turf) ● Plant pockets of sponge park for stormwater infiltration ● Capture stormwater in cisterns (from the container roofs) for watering the field ● Shaded outdoor spaces/ tree plantings ● Plant pollinator species/ urban habitat ● Inspire care of the park and its surroundings, community cleanups ● Use of recycled and reusable construction materials for carbon sequestration ● Provide access to vital open space in a community that lacks a robust distribution of small neighborhood parks and open space.
