Survey will help city prioritize projects in our neighborhoods

In 2006, area residents helped decide what our neighborhood would be like in the future by working with the city on the East Riverside/Oltorf Combined (EROC) Neighborhood Plan.

Now the city would like your help prioritizing the projects that were recommended during that process. Projects include watershed protection; park and trail projects; traffic studies and signs; pedestrian and cycling infrastructure such as bike lanes, sidewalks and crosswalks; code amendments and enforcement; and changes to development and zoning rules.

You can review the list of projects in the Parker Lane section of EROC (see map), which includes the Burleson Heights and Burleson-Parker neighborhoods. Then take the Neighborhood Plan Prioritization Survey to help determine the five capital improvement projects and five noncapital improvement projects that are most important for the city to tackle over the next few years.

For more information, contact Jackie Chuter, senior planner, at (512) 974-2613 or; or Malcolm Yeatts of the EROC Contact Team at

Additional information on the neighborhood planning areas is available at the city’s Planning and Development Review website.

The deadline to complete the survey is Sept. 22.
