Parks and impacts of events

Post by Kathie Tovo » Tue Feb 17, 2015 10:30 am

Colleagues,
As referenced in this weekend's article about the use of public parks, a past Council resolution asked staff to explore with stakeholders the impacts that events have on our most highly used public parks and the neighborhoods which surround them. I will be bringing forward a resolution on the 2/26 agenda to reinvigorate this process of assessing the impact of events on our public parks.

Thank you, Mayor Pro Tem Tovo for bringing this forward. I would also like to work with you on this issue. Since Zilker Park is in District 8, I have been meeting with constituents, with city staff, and researching this issue as well. In addition to the the impact of events on our parks and surrounding neighborhoods, I am hoping to compile related information, like how many days per year our busiest parks are open to the public, how many events are free to attend versus require tickets, etc. Thank you!

Thanks Ellen. I have been meeting also, since District 5 represents the neighborhoods on the east side of the park. There's a number of our districts that touch on Zilker Park and LadyBird Lake

I appreciate the chance for us all to work together on this important issue!
