Parts of the Brackenridge Tract to be zoned are Lions Municipal Golf Course (MUNY) and WAYA, the Town Lake Tract, The Deep Eddy Tract, and the HEB tract. City Staff have not made recommendations for zoning, and have requested input from the public, prior to and during the zoning process.

    Johnson Creek Trail Cleanup Volunteers Needed!

    A small group of volunteers have started a litter-pick up on the last Sunday of the month starting at 8am where 7th street Ts into Winsted or Atlanta (whatever the name of the street is at that point.)  Any and all are invited to come out and lend a hand!
    But now we are expanding to wanting to plant many trees along the trail.  This project will require many skill sets, from grant writing, to leadership, organization-especially computer skills, and plain old sweaty labor.
    Wednesday, May 5th at 1pm Kirsten Schneider from Parks/forestry will meet interested people at the south end of the trail (where we can park cars under MoPac) to do a walk along the trail and talk about ideas and options.  All interested are invited to join us.  Please come!
    If people are interested but can not make it to that walk, they are most warmly welcomed to email me.  Please put JCTP in subject line.
