ACTION ALERT: Tonight (2–15) at 6:00 p.m. Public Meeting on Jollyville Road !

Hi Everyone,

Hope all is well. I wanted to let everyone know that a critical neighborhood meeting takes place this evening at 6:00 p.m. which directly impacts safe bicycling and the implementation of our City of Austin, Texas, Imagine Austin Plan (see, “http://bit.ly/2ejIZAO”).

The City of Austin, Texas Imagine Austin Plan encourages multimodal transportation (i.e., mass transit, auto, bicycling, sidewalks, and trees) throughout the City of Austin.

Unfortunately, as usual, strong neighborhood opposition has already galvanized against the proposal. As a result, it’s essential that we let District 10’s new City Council Person Allison Alter (Email her at district10@austintexas.gov) know about our support of the Jollyville Road CAMPO and City of Austin, Texas Multimodal plan.

District 10 is one of the largest city council districts geographically and has a significant number of Austinites in favor of multimodal urban design and new urbanism (see, “http://bit.ly/2kKi6W6").

Check out these details provided by Bike Austin:

The City of Austin and CAMPO are hosting an informational meeting to clarify information and concepts presented for Jollyville Road as part of CAMPO’s Near Northwest Corridor Case Study. If you are available, please attend to show your support for the preliminary plan for the 183 North corridor, which includes all ages and abilities bike lane on Jollyville Rd.

What: Jollyville informational meeting
When: Wednesday, February 15th, from 6–7pm 
Where: Spicewood Springs Library (8637 Spicewood Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78759)

Some residents are protesting these critical safety improvements, despite the ample safety and mobility benefits that the project will produce. Please show your support to ensure protected bike lanes remain a part of the Jollyville Rd plan.

Sincerely,

Mercedes Feris
Executive Director

All the best,
