    Development

    2401 Winsted Restaurant Zoning:  For information on the proposed restaurant zoning at the intersection of Windsor and Mopac (2401 Winsted), please see WANG’s letter of opposition due to concerns about loss of affordable housing and significant safety risks to pedestrians and vehicles of adding restaurant zoning at this narrow street which already receives dangerous  cut-through traffic and has experienced multiple dangerous collisions and traffic hazards in recent years, including a traffic accident at the intersection on Thursday (9/19) when a northbound truck on Winsted collided with a pregnant woman turning left onto southbound Winsted.  We have places for food trucks in our neighborhood, but not at this dangerous street.  If you interested in signing the petition against the restaurant zoning, here is the 2401 Winsted Petition.

    New HEB Store:  HEB has prepared a website with architectural drawings and other details.  HEB would like input from neighbors regarding their plans for a new store where Randall’s is currently located.   Please send comments to Leslie Sweet, Director of Public Affairs: You can email the design team at .  You can access HEB’s traffic study for the site here: Lake Austin Blvd. Traffic Study 2019.

    Red Bud Trail Renovation Project:  Please view the plans.  You can review answers to the questions they were sent here.

    Walsh Boat Landing Improvements:  Improvements are scheduled to start mid-September.  More Information here.

    Exposition Construction:  Water line upgrades and maintenance have started on Exposition Blvd.  For more information visit the Exposition Water Improvements page.
