That first data point may be the most helpful of the evening- one wonders why we tend to use once per year.
Evan Taniguchi

I can't add the code on Menti. there's already one there

Won’t let me submit unless I enable “cookies”
Studio 8
24:35
sorry, we haven't come across that
Ingrid Weigand
24:41
That did not happen during the last meeting
Becky Taylor

Please repeat names of those presenting
Studio 8

how is this project being coordinated with the building planned for the Schlotzky site? Traffic will be greatly increased because their planned parking will exit on Toomey
Becky Taylor
49:22
Sustainable in this context: appealing and usable over the very long term, in a manner that draws people in rather than annoying.
Becky Taylor
51:07
Last week, Council has apparently approved the Schlotzsky PUD. That brings 800 cars to Toomey every day. What is the traffic load being estimated for the DAC complex? Is that ~800 car limit from the PUD incorporated into the assumptions?
Ingrid Weigand

1a or 1b
Becky Taylor
53:54
Hmmm…what’s the budget for this phase of the project?
Pat Sackett
54:13
How many of your team live in the immediate area?
Becky Taylor
54:40
Great question, Pat!
Bryant Bell
55:05
Bryant Bell, civil engineer, I live in 78704
Pat Sackett

We live across the street, this is personal. Easy for someone else in our ZIP code to take our parking away.
Marta Tienda
01:00:26
another problem is that there is a lot of turnover for rental units and moving trucks are often lining the street. I watch them from my balcony
Becky Taylor
01:00:28
Toomey really lends itself to becoming a pedestrian-only street. It is short and narrow.
Ingrid Weigand
01:00:33
You asked some of the same questions at the last meeting and it is all very nebulous. Our neighborhood (Bouldin) would like to know what plans you are envisioning, what budget and timeline you have. It is ver hard to react to just consultant speak.
Marta Tienda
01:01:05
one side of Toomey lacks sidewalks to protect pedestrians!
Becky Taylor
01:03:11
Is the team looking at how other communities are removing cars from central city areas? I suggest you look at London.They are successfully removing cars from very central parts of London.
Becky Taylor
01:04:25
Start small by keeping traffic off a tiny street like Toomey.
William Quinn
01:10:07
When will you plan for the vertical scale of the buildings?
William Quinn
01:10:54
what will happen to the benches that are near the swings?
Becky Taylor
01:17:23
Can you incorporate a number of nesting pairs of various bird species, to help guide tree placement/type choices?
Pat Sackett
01:18:45
Given residential density on Toomey, parking on Toomey is essential. Only option for someone visiting me. Option 3 eliminates this.
Becky Taylor
01:39:26
please hide all of the parking
Becky Taylor
01:39:51
This is a terrific forum, well organized and clear. I look forward to future interactions with you.
Kevin Johnson
01:42:18
Thank you Becky, and for your thoughtful comments. Likewise.
William Quinn
01:43:22
We are happy to help!
Kevin Johnson
01:44:04
Send follow-up questions/comments to: dacproject@austintexas.gov, and we will post board and commissions dates to the project website once confirmed: www.austintexas.gov/dacproject
Pat Sackett
01:48:00
In the blue parking garage option, wouldn't Toomey access reduce the number of spaces available?
Bryant Bell
01:50:40
Great job Jonathan!
