The Rosedale Neighborhood Association will hold its second monthly meeting of 2015 on Monday evening, February 23, 2015, at 6:45 pm at the Yarborough Library on Hancock. There’s a lot going on in the area and the city. As always, all are welcome to participate!
Agenda highlights include:
It’s been a while, and lots of work and help by lots of great people, but the enhancements to Ramsey Park are finally opening today! Most of the play ground is already open and usable. There’s a ribbon cutting ceremony planned from 1-3 p.m. on March 7th with the actual ceremony at 1:30. The mayor will be there with city staff and some food and drink. There’s also a It’s My Park Day volunteer project for the park field that same day at 9 AM. Learn more about helping with that, and the evolution of the Ramsey Park improvements on the park’s FaceBook page. Note that a few areas of the park will remain fenced off to allow the newly sprayed-on grass seed to regrow.

Avoid pruning from now through July 1st to help stop the spread of oak wilt. That’s the message from those who love how oak trees add to Rosedale’s quality of life. Every pest has its season and we’re entering the time when the beetle that carries oak wilt fungal spores would love easy access to destroy your oak trees. Online resources are available from the likes of the city of Austin, the Save Austin Oaks local non-profit, Texas A&M, and others. The city estimates over 10,000 oaks have been lost to oak wilt resulting in increased utility bills and reduced property values. Remember that oak wilt is easier to prevent than to treat, so prune safe out there.
[UPDATE: MileStone has closed the survey. ] Rosedale residents, and others, are invited by the purchaser of the 75 acre tract of land at 45th Street and Bull Creek Road to participate in an online survey to provide input on how that land should be developed.
