Review city’s plans for East Riverside Corridor

The City of Austin is holding an open house Oct. 27 to discuss the draft of the East Riverside Corridor Regulating Plan. The ERC plan is available for review online and at the Ruiz Branch Library, 1600 Grove Blvd., starting Monday.

The plan will guide the development of transportation in the area, and the city is implementing a transportation study to identify short-, medium- and long-term improvements that would improve safety and improve mobility and accessibility for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.

East Riverside is considered a gateway for visitors arriving at the airport, and the city has long expressed interest in creating a more appealing boulevard with a mix of businesses, residences and public transportation, possibly involving light rail.

Read the plan and come to the open house to give your input and help shape the future of our neighboring district. See a flier for the event, in English and Spanish, here.
