Here is important info from Kenneth Webb, North Shoal Creek Contact Team Chair, regarding a rezoning request for the property at 8303 N. MoPac (currently the Ergon Asphalt Plant).
“A community meeting for a plan amendment to rezone the property at 8303 N. MoPac has been scheduled at the North Village Branch Library, 2505 Steck Ave, on Monday, March 9, 2020. The meeting will be from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. A copy of the meeting announcement is attached. For more information, email Maureen.Meredith [at] austintexas [dot] gov.
In accordance with 7.D of its bylaws, a meeting of the NSCNP Contact Team will be held March 12, 2020, 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the First Texas Honda Dealership Conference Room, 3400 Steck Avenue. The Agenda for the meeting will include:
1) Rezoning of 8303 N MOPAC.
2) Neighborhood Plan Amendment for 8303 N MOPAC.
Please come to both meetings. The March 9 meeting provides an opportunity to ask the owners of the property questions you might have about this rezoning request. The March 12 meeting provides an opportunity for you to offer input regarding this request to the Contact Team.
A public hearing before the Zoning and Platting Commission will also be required. I have been informed that this public hearing will be scheduled after the March 9 community meeting, and that. March 31 is a possible date.
