The Tarrytown Neighborhood, along with the Bryker Woods and Pemberton Heights Neighborhoods, are officially going through the City’s “Neighborhood Plan” process as part of the Central West Austin Combined Neighborhood Planning Area. The Neighborhood Planning Process will address a number of important issues, including, Parks & the Environment, Transportation, Urban Design/Neighborhood Character, and Land Use & Zoning (properties may be rezoned as a result of the planning process).
Neighborhood planning is an opportunity for citizens to take a proactive role in the planning process and decide how their neighborhoods will move into the future. All stakeholders of the neighborhood – business owners, renters, residents, property owners, and various community organizations and institutions — are invited to provide community input addressing the local issues and concerns affecting the neighborhood. Working together with Neighborhood Planning staff, stakeholders establish a clear vision of their priorities, needs and guide for future development.

Be sure to see the previous West Austin Neighborhood Group “Neighborhood Plan” adopted in 1986 (www.WestAustinNG.com/neighborhoodplan.pdf).
