The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department will soon host a public forum to discuss an off-leash area (OLA) that has been proposed for Mabel Davis District Park.
This will be the third public meeting since June 2011 about the facility, which will require approval from City Council in order to be built. See the July 5 blog post for links to archived posts that discuss the unusual history of the park and the pros and cons that residents have pointed out about the proposed OLA.
Burleson-Parker and Burleson Heights residents will meet at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 14 to prepare for the forum, which will gather public feedback before the Parks and Recreation Department makes its final recommendation to City Council. Residents can find out more about the neighborhood meeting from one of the private neighborhood message boards.
The community forum will include a speaker panel and the opportunity for group discussion.
When: 6-8 p.m. Aug. 29
Where: Travis High School cafeteria, 1211 E. Oltorf St.
Who: Open to the public
