Important City Meetings Tonight & Tomorrow Night

Monday, November 29, 2010 (21:44:39) Event
Just a reminder that tonight is an important “public input” meeting about the proposed disc golf course at the Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Park;
Monday evening, November 29th
6:00 – 7:30 pm
Ruiz Branch Library
1600 Grove Road, 78741

And tomorrow night is the monthly Austin Parks Board meeting;
Tuesday evening, November 30th
6 pm at City Hall
301 W. 2nd Street
Boards and Commissions Room (Rm. 1101)

The opponents of this new course have marshaled their defenses and are putting a lot of pressure on the city council, parks department, and austin parks board; the same as the opponents of the Pease course have done.

We need good turnouts at both meetings and good pressure on these same institutions though emails and phone calls in order to balance out the negative information.


For the Parks Board meeting on Tuesday, the official agenda lists the disc golf part at a briefing by the city on the proposed disc golf course at the Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Park. I believe the public can also speak out about this project at this time because it is on the agenda. But in addition to that, they have a Public Comment period at the beginning of the meeting for people to speak about items not on the agenda. This is where we can talk about Pease.

Having a lot of supporters there both voicing concern for Pease as well as the need for Roy G. is important from a ‘public input’ standpoint. If we don’t speak up for what we want, we’ll never get it.

Thanks!

Help Save Pease Park... Again

Monday, November 29, 2010 (21:41:49) Event
Heads Up Texas Disc Golfers, your help is needed, and quickly!

The City recently announced that they will be closing Pease Park Disc Golf Course by the end of the year. This announcement comes months after telling the community that the course would remain open until there was another course opened (possibly at Roy Guerrero Park) so that the other area courses are not drastically overused, drastically exaggerating environmental impact at every other area course. This was a complete lie. There will be no course at Roy G for many months, if ever. City officials strung us along, just to shut us up and announce their real intentions while the citizens were not paying attention. They did this on a Friday afternoon at 4:45 pm right before the short Thanksgiving week.

Here is a link to that KXAN story...
http://www.kxan.com/dpp/news/local/disc-golf-almost-done-at-pease-park-

The City also promised that they would work towards (or at least consider) reinstating some aspect of the course at Pease once the storm-water work is completed. Given that this information came from City officials, it is unclear what will be the final result, especially with their recent track record of inconsistent stories.

So, if you are interested in having future disc golf recreation in Austin, or are interested in simply having city officials which tell the truth and follow ethical protocol standards, PLEASE make yourselves heard. There is no chance that they will ever show the community respect if folks simply accept this as the way government works.

If you wish to contact the following people to express your opinion, here are the phone numbers of the elected representatives.

You may e-mail them using this website
http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/council/groupemail.htm

Mayor Lee Leffingwell - (512) 974-2250
Council Member Chris Riley - (512) 974-2260
Council Member Mike Martinez - (512) 974-2264
Council Member Randi Shade - (512) 974-2255
Council Member Laura Morrison - (512) 974-2258
Council Member Bill Spelman - (512) 974-2256
Council Member Sheryl Cole - (512) 974-2266
Sara Hensley, PARD Director – (512) 974-6716
Assistant City manager Bert Lumbreras – (512) 974-7717

To widen the scope of your responses, here are the email addresses of the Mayor and Council, many of their aides, the Parks Dept. Director and 2 of the Assistant Directors, and the Austin Parks Board. ALL of these people need to hear about this from you, and they need to hear about it often. The groups opposed to Pease are getting to these influential members often and vocally, the disc golf community now needs to do the same.

The city is, at best, breaking their word about keeping the course open until a new course is completely installed and operating. This was a publicly stated commitment.
