Action Item: Register your opposition to Austin Oaks PUD

The following email requests that residents of Districts 7 & 10 express their opposition to the Austin Oaks PUD. NSCNA’s membership and Board have voted to oppose the PUD, so NSCNA’s official position remains opposed to it. However, the Board recognizes the importance of ALL North Shoal Creek residents expressing their opinions whether in support or in opposition. We urge you to know what is going on in your community, be involved in your community, and express your opinions to your elected representatives.

AUSTIN RESIDENTS in DISTRICTS 7 & 10
ACTION ITEM: Register your opposition to Austin Oaks PUD

The Austin Oaks PUD hearing continues at City Council on 16-Feb-2017. The PUD still fails to satisfy major concerns of 4-corner neighborhood residents: too much traffic, too many trees killed, buildings are too tall.
