As most of you know, there is a large development proposed in our hood called “The Grove” that has been looming over our heads/the listserve for months and months. I know we are all sick of hearing about it, well most of us, but don’t throw in the towel just yet! It is finally coming to a head on September 22nd in front of the City Council (mark your calendars). WOO HOO!
You have just until September 22 to pick a topic, any topic, and PLEASE WRITE THE FOLKS
BELOW letting them know that you would like for them to hold the developers
accountable and build a better project for Austin.
- The Grove’s entitlement request is for… 1,515 Residential Units and 683,000 sf of commercial/civic development and allows 19,442 new trips per day.
- If the Grove was granted the same entitlements as Mueller, they would get to build… just 698 Residential Units, 577,000 sf of commercial/civic development and 25 hotel rooms and allow 8,003 new trips per day.
- If the Grove had the same development intensity as Crestview Station, they would build… just 1,363 Residential Units, 11x LESS commercial development, and allow 9,404 new trips per day at a Transit Oriented Development adjacent to rail.
If you are short on ideas, see bcrc-amendments-table for more inspiration or a simple email with a subject line on your position and location works too.
