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


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.

We, the undersigned, hereby petition the City Council of Austin, Texas to remove Segment 16/Route 57 of the City Bike Plan, in North East Austin and/or relocate it to connect the Gus Garcia Recreation Center property to Connor Lane. This would better serve all affected neighborhoods.

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.

** We also feel that the city has not properly notified residents and parents of the consequences of reducing school bus service. Furthermore, we feel that the best location for the bridge is from the Gus Garcia Recreation Center property to Connor Lane. This would better serve all affected neighborhoods.
