    Lamar Beach Master Plan Vision Workshop and Public Meeting
    The public meeting will include the following activities: a 30-minute open
    house starting at 6:30, and a 60-minute interactive presentation beginning at
    7 p.m. The project team will lead the interactive presentation and mapping
    exercise to capture input from participants, including opportunities and
    challenges of the planning area.

    The planning area for Lamar Beach at Town Lake Metro Park includes
    approximately 65 acres of parkland that is bounded by Lady Bird Lake to the
    south, the railroad tracks above the YMCA Town Lake to the north, Austin
    High School to the west and North Lamar Blvd to the east. Current uses of the
    park include athletic fields, the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, Austin Pets Alive
    Adoption Center, Roy and Ann Butler Hike and Bike Trail and the
    Texas Rowing Center.  The West Austin Youth Association (WAYA) programs
    six athletic fields for youth sports programs and maintains a seventh field for
    public use.
    In June, 2014, the City Council passed Resolution 20140612-060 to initiate
    the master planning process for Lamar Beach at Town Lake Metro Park in
    conjunction with plans to extend Pressler Street from 5th Street to W. Cesar
    Chavez Street.  Design Workshop, a local landscape architecture and planning
    firm, was selected to lead the planning effort. The next public engagement
    meeting is scheduled for Nov. 18, 2015.
