Our Opposition to the Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge Over Little Walnut Creek at North Acres Park (Segment 16 of Bike Route 57)

    1. Petition by

      HHWB Neighborhood

Some of the reasons we oppose the bridge in the proposed location (between Park Plaza and Hermitage Drive at North Acres Park) include:,
• The Bridge will likely bring significantly more crime from the high-crime area north of the creek to our low-crime neighborhood south of the creek.
• North Acres Park, our only park, is too small to accommodate the relatively large bridge. Neighborhood gatherings at the park would no longer be possible as in the past

Consistent with previous agreements with the City, our Neighborhood Plan and the Austin Police Department, we petition you to stop construction plans and to make the requested changes.

      Established neighborhood, many elderly friends who worked all their life to pay off their homes and believed enough to remain in their homes safely....please give them their dignity.

      Those of us who live in the area know that this bridge is a bad idea. The only ones who think it is good are people who don't live here and have their own agendas. Getting from the high crime area of Rundburg Lane south towards US183 on the east side of IH35 is being made easier already by the sidewalk being built by the city right now along IH35 north bound frontage road. That will solve the supposed "problem" of getting people to and from Rundburg (an area that is right now being heavily policed). 'We really do need to spread the crime out of it's concentrated area!!!'

      Kids should not be walking to school through there. Unsafe. Allows people on foot to burglarize our neighborhood and run. Bridge on 35 is complete.

      I do not want this high crime neighborhood to be this accessible to my reasonably low crime neighborhood. I do not believe it would be safe for children to cross this bridge alone which is bound to happen with it being in close proximity to Hart Elementary.
