Front page error puts former state land in Rosedale

Community compromise helps shape developmentIf you did a double take when the most recent issue of the Central Austin edition of the Community Impact newspaper arrived in the mail, you’re not alone. A front page article on the Grove at Shoal Creek development, planned for the former state land at 45th and Bull Creek, has the development in the Rosedale neighborhood rather than in Ridgelea, its true home. Rosedale’s top spot in terms of responders to the developer survey regarding possible plans for the land may have contributed to the misunderstanding. Ignoring that error, the article provides some great graphics and helpful information about the project. [Subsequent note: The city recognizes a “Rosedale Neighborhood Planning Area” which includes the neighborhoods of Rosedale, Oakmont Heights, and Ridgelea. The actual boundaries of the Rosedale neighborhood, as defined by the neighborhood association, do not extend west of Shoal Creek (the creek not the boulevard). Apologies for any confusion.]
