Help Us Save Red Bluff: March 25th, 2pm

Our President, Pete Rivera, along with the fine folks of ATX Environmental Justice, the Sierra Club, the National Parks Service and a slew of other advocates are working hard to preserve the area of Red Bluff. We would ask that you please join us this Saturday, March 25th at 2:00 pm at the Eastview Austin Community College, Room 9313 to show your support. There is a map below for exact location.

As always, thank you for you continued support and we look forward to sharing an update on this shortly!


Govalle Pool Project Donation: Let’s Plan!

We have a great news! A generous anonymous donor has given $500 to our organization for the Govalle Pool Project. They have requested that the money go toward creating a piece of art as a mural that will reflect the neighborhood. We will be working with the City of Austin project managers to make sure that this can still be incorporated into their final design.

One important thing to keep in mind is that we will need your help! We want to make sure that it will reflect the history of the the area and that it comes from the residents. Please send us ideas. Something with a permanent feel that has some heart. Such as an elementary school art project, local materials, mosaic art, etc . We are very grateful that they thought of us and we hope to make them proud. Neighbors, get your thinking caps on. Spring is here, so let those ideas bloom!


December 6th Meeting: Kingsbery Community Solar Project

We have some exciting news for our upcoming meeting. The folks behind Kingsbery Community Solar Project will be joining us to talk about what is planned for the project.
