That first data point may be the most helpful of the evening- one wonders why we tend to use once per year.
I can't add the code on Menti. there's already one there
Won’t let me submit unless I enable “cookies”
sorry, we haven't come across that
That did not happen during the last meeting
Please repeat names of those presenting
Kevin Johnson from PARD right now
Jonathan Pearson from Studio8 was the intro
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
Sustainable in this context: appealing and usable over the very long term, in a manner that draws people in rather than annoying.
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?
1a or 1b
Hmmm…what’s the budget for this phase of the project?
How many of your team live in the immediate area?
Great question, Pat!
Bryant Bell, civil engineer, I live in 78704
We live across the street, this is personal. Easy for someone else in our ZIP code to take our parking away.
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
Toomey really lends itself to becoming a pedestrian-only street. It is short and narrow.
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.
one side of Toomey lacks sidewalks to protect pedestrians!
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.
Start small by keeping traffic off a tiny street like Toomey.
When will you plan for the vertical scale of the buildings?
what will happen to the benches that are near the swings?
Can you incorporate a number of nesting pairs of various bird species, to help guide tree placement/type choices?
Given residential density on Toomey, parking on Toomey is essential. Only option for someone visiting me. Option 3 eliminates this.
please hide all of the parking
This is a terrific forum, well organized and clear. I look forward to future interactions with you.
Thank you Becky, and for your thoughtful comments. Likewise.
We are happy to help!
Send follow-up questions/comments to: email@example.com, and we will post board and commissions dates to the project website once confirmed: www.austintexas.gov/dacproject
In the blue parking garage option, wouldn't Toomey access reduce the number of spaces available?
Great job Jonathan!
