December 10th, 2016



Spire Realty, the owner of Austin Oaks, finalized its submissions to the City regarding the Austin Oaks Planned Unit Development (PUD) on December 7, 2016. NWACA is surveying NWACA residents for feedback on the alternatives that are now before City Council – redevelopment under current zoning and redevelopment under the PUD. You can find the survey at this link: http://tinyurl.com/AustinOaks

Only one response is allowed per household. To help with validation of the responses, we are requiring that you enter the 4-digit card code on the Q4 NWACA postcard that came to you on or about December 10. The code is located next to the words “current resident” on the first address line. If you have tossed out your card or can’t find it, email us at [email protected] with your street address and we’ll provide you the code.

Please respond to the survey before January 9, 2017, using this link.

Background
After the neighborhood survey conducted in March 2015, NWACA requested that the developer create an open process for neighbors to provide input about the proposed Austin Oaks Development. In January 2016, a week-long charrette was held during which more than 200 neighbors participated. The outcome of the successive refinement of 3 initial designs was called the "Preferred Plan." Since the completion of the charrette, representatives from NWACA have been working to ensure that the developer's application for a Planned Unit Development (PUD) designation is reflective of the charrette outcome, and that the associated proposed ordinance is specific enough to ensure that it is binding and consistent with the Preferred Plan. Information about the charrette, the Preferred Plan, and the evolution of the developer's application can be found here.


The City Council will now decide whether or not to approve the application for the Austin Oaks site to be designated as a Planned Unit Development (PUD). Spire Realty has indicated that if the application is not approved, they will redevelop the site under current zoning. A potential scenario that could be developed under current zoning was created by TBG Partners during the charrette process.


This survey about redevelopment at the Austin Oaks site is for residents of NWACA. NWACA boundaries are Mopac, RM 2222, Loop 360, and Spicewood Springs Road. We are asking for your feedback on the two development scenarios that are most likely to occur at the Austin Oaks site over the next 10 to 20 years.
