NSC NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN DRAFT QUALITY OF LIFE ELEMENT UPDATED

NSC NEIGHBORHOOD PLAN DRAFT QUALITY OF LIFE ELEMENT UPDATED

The City Planning and Zoning Department (PAZ) released the Draft Quality of Life Element (QLE) on June 16, with a deadline of 10 days for comments. Due to the insufficient time for review of the element, plus numerous incorrect and/or objectionable items contained in the draft it was decided that NSCNA should request additional time and submit a revised QLE.

Representatives of NSCNA met with officials from PAZ, other City staff and Council Member Leslie Pool’s staff on July 12 to discuss concerns with the QLE and Neighborhood Planning process, and sent them preliminary draft working documents.

On July18 the NSCNA Development Committee finalized the revised QLE, which will be considered by the NSCNA Board of Directors on July 27. Upon approval by the board, the revised QLE will be submitted to PAZ, other City staff and Council Member Pool’s staff.

The draft QLE was announced in a June 24 posting to this website. A copy of that draft QLE can be viewed at this link:

Updated:The revised QLE, approved by the NSCNA Board of Directors July 27, can be viewed at this link:

NSCNA members and all residents of NSC are invited to review these documents and submit any comments or recommendations by email to development [at] nscna [dot] org . Comments received by July 27 will be considered by the board that evening. Comments received after July 27 will be considered later.

PAZ has released other draft elements. For a complete list of draft elements, please visit the North Shoal Creek Neighborhood Plan web page: http://austintexas.gov/northshoalcreek.

Current PAZ plans are to complete the plan elements and hold an open house in August, 2017.
