On Dec 14, Northcross neighbors held a huge noontime rally outside City Hall. The message was loud and clear: development that harms our neighborhood is bad for Austin.

Let's reset the clock.

At its Dec. 14th session, the Austin City Council said it planned to hold Lincoln Property to no activity at Northcross for 60 days.

UPDATE - Jan 4th, 2007 - Lincoln Property Company is actively moving forward with its plans despite the agreement made with the City to suspend activities at the Wal-Mart site for 60 days.

 

Friends,
 
Responsible Growth for Northcross (RG4N) came into existence in mid-November ‘06. Since then, our list of accomplishments is pretty darned impressive for less than two months of effort, thanks to the tremendous neighborhood support that RG4N has experienced. 
 
From our initial community meeting in late November, which drew a standing-room-only crowd of over 300 neighbors, we have managed to focus significant media, public and City Council attention on the Northcross redevelopment. We’ve submitted thousands of signatures on petitions to City Council, we’ve distributed thousands of yard signs, and we’ve received thousands of dollars in donations.
 
But our work is nowhere near done.
