    City of Austin Initiates Zoning on parts of UT Owned Brackenridge Tract

    The University of Texas has asked the City of Austin to initiate zoning on four tracts of their land. The City of Austin Housing and Planning Dept. has sent letters of notification of a zoning change to surrounding neighbors and neighborhood stakeholder groups.  Parts of the Brackenridge Tract to be zoned are Lions Municipal Golf Course (MUNY) and the West Austin Youth Association (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, per a City Council Resolution which was approved in Dec. 2020.

    The Brackenridge Development Agreement between the University of Texas and the City of Austin remains in effect on a rolling month to month basis with a five month notification of cancellation.
