DANA Garden Day – 11/1/2014
Calling all city dwellers! You may no longer have a garden to tend, but come get your hands dirty and meet your neighbors as we beautify part of the hike and bike trail near the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge. DANA adopted a garden on Lady Bird Lake (Cesar Chavez side of Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge). It’s a busy spot on the trail and will be enjoyed by all that pass by.
Check out these pics from our DANA Garden day from a couple years back!
If you are interested in volunteering, please just email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know and so we can send you additional information if necessary.
City Council To Consider Amendment on Off-Peak Concrete Pouring Thursday 10/23
UPDATE: 10/21: This amendment has indefinitely been postponed, reportedly to do stakeholder feedback like DANA’s!
DANA Members / Readers,
City Council will be considering an Amendment to the COA Code (Sec. 9-2) relating to permitting requirements regarding off-peak concrete pouring.
The item is currently #18 on the agenda, which can be found HERE. When you click on the item, the supporting documents appear on the right-hand column of the screen.
In July, DANA submitted a letter to the City regarding the code and the proposed amendment to the code.
DANA has also formally submitted the following concerns regarding the code / proposed amendment:
Many residents / members have expressed that they would like to see overnight pours prohibited altogether. However, others state that restricting the concrete pours provide a possible disincentive for future dense development, may lengthen the overall period of construction, and would provide traffic issues for daytime commuters.
Now is the time to let your thoughts on this issue be heard. If you are passionate about this issue, we URGE you to attend the October 23rd Council Meeting. You are also encouraged to reach out to City Council as an individual resident.
