Keep Graffiti Park Standing At Its Current Location

In January of 2018, Austin's Historic Landmark Commission voted 8-0 in favor of demolishing Graffiti Park to clear the area for further development. Although plans are in the works to construct a so-called "Graffiti Park 2.0", the location of this proposed construction (9507 Sherman Road) is unfavorable as it is some distance away from the city center and will not be able to afford such striking views of the Austin skyline as the current location. Additionally, this move discourages the organic nature of street art by confining it to Government-Approved locations and represents yet another step away from Austin's quirky roots towards bleak modernization.
