Homeless RV Park
by Susanna Woody on June 22nd, 2010

Are we to late to stop Austin from placing a homeless RV park down the street from one of our only parks in the area? Location is on Burleson just past 183 near the Airport and Richard Moya Park.

Homeless RV Park
by Janie Miller on June 22nd, 2010

I don't think it is too late. Right now they are looking. But.... if we argue this, we have to find a way to do it so we don't look like the bad guys. Which they and the media will do if that is what it takes.

Homeless RV Park
by Susanna Woody on June 22nd, 2010

Please join me in strong opposition to the proposed RV Park for the homeless built near our homes by sending an email to Austin City Council members. They will be voting on this proposal Thursday June 24th at 301 City Hall. Please contact all Austin City Council members at http://www.ci.austin.tx.us/council/groupemail.htm and urge them to vote against the proposed idea. I have also attached maps that show the distance from the proposed location to our schools, parks and neighborhoods.

Here is an example:

Dear City Council Members,
I oppose Item No. 83 that will be voted on this Thursday. This resolution supports the use of ABIA land for a RV Park that will house the chronically homeless. I ask that you all vote against this proposal because its proposed location will be within a mile of one of the only parks in the area, within less than 3 miles from 3 DVISD schools and 3 residential neighborhoods. This proposal is not what our community wants.

Item(s) from Council ITEM No. 83
RECOMMENDATION FOR COUNCIL ACTION

________________________________________

Subject: Approve a resolution directing the City Manager to work with the Central Texas Federal Congressional delegation to assess the likelihood of obtaining FAA approval to release City airport land for use by the Mobile Loaves and Fishes' Habitat on Wheels program, including the financial impact; to evaluate other City owned property that is available and appropriate for use by the Mobile Loaves and Fishes Habitat on Wheels program; and to report back to Council within sixty days.

Del Valle needs your support tomorrow!!!!

Hi All,
Del Valle needs your support tomorrow!!!!
The City of Austin will be voting on the Homeless RV Park proposed in
Del Valle. This is NOT what Del Valle needs or wants!
As listed on Agenda item 83:
"Approve a resolution directing the City Manager to work with the
Central Texas Federal Congressional delegation to assess the
likelihood of obtaining FAA approval to release City airport land for
use by the Mobile Loaves and Fishes' Habitat on Wheels program,
including the financial impact; to evaluate other City owned property
that is available and appropriate for use by the Mobile Loaves and
Fishes Habitat on Wheels program; and to report back to Council within
sixty days. (Mayor Pro Tem Mike Martinez Mayor Lee Leffingwell Council
Member Randi Shade)"

I urge you to be there for Del Valle Tomorrow. Please raise your
voice and let Del Valle be heard! This was not good enough for other
areas of Austin where it was proposed and shot down, and now they are
trying to dump this in our laps!

Please meet us at 301 W. Second Street, Austin, TX
If you would like to speak you need to register at the kiosk at the
location listed above before the item is called. If more than 5 of us
will register to speak the council will pull it up for discussion
during the meeting. Please register to speak out on this issue that
effects each and every resident of Del Valle.
In line follows the agenda. I will be there tomorrow and I hope you
will too. The citizens of Del Valle can come together on this issue
and support one another.

I'd like to hear another side to the story, is there anyone who is in favor of this?
If so we would like to hear your side so you can be represented when we find out information about what will be happening in our own city tomorrow.

I was just reviewing the maps and they are inaccurate. The proposed location for the RV Homeless park is the Old Del Valle HS off Shapard Ln by the stadium where Friday Night Lights is filmed.

Yes, Michelle is correct. The initial article we read when we first caught wind of the RV park led us to believe this would be located on Burleson, but after further information we did discover the actual location to be the one you are referring to by the old high-school.
