Mueller Neighborhood Assn Meeting Sun, Feb 10th
by Karen_Zab on February 9th, 2008

Just a reminder that tomorrow, Sunday, Feb 10th, from 3 - 5pm is the monthly Mueller Neighborhood Assn Meeting. All new and potential homeowners and any other interested parties are welcome. It's a place to meet new neighbors, share information, and discuss how to support our new community.

It is held the 2nd Sunday of every month at Asbury United Methodist on the corner of Cherrywood and 38th St., right near Mueller.

Hope to see you there! Current agenda items include:

Preparing for next week's school bond public hearing
Putting more formal organization around MNA and the monthly meetings


Anything else you want to bring to the table!

Thanks,
Karen Z

I would encourage everyone who has not yet attended one of these meetings to join us at tomorrow's meeting at 3:00PM at Asbury United Methodist on the corner of Cherrywood and 38th St. Here are a couple of great reasons:

1. You'll probably get to meet Jim Walker and/or Rick Krivoniak, two gentlemen we have to thank for Mueller's very design. They continue to educate and mentor the Mueller Pioneers on a variety of community issues.

2. You'll get to meet one another. We pioneers, current and future, are an interesting and diverse group of households that, in many cases, have selected Mueller as a family-friendly, urban alternative to suburbia.

3. You'll hear from other pioneers who are dealing with some of the same issues you are, and, through shared experience, we can determine strategies to address them...or at least feel a little group empathy.

4. Tomorrow's meeting will focus on an issue that is important to many of us...the proposed Mueller Elementary School. Much has been said and written about the decision by the AISD's Citizen's Bond Advisory Committee to remove the Mueller ES from an upcoming school bond that might have opened Mueller ES in 2011 or 2012. Now the bond is under consideration by the AISD Board of Trustees and Mueller ES may be up for re-consideration as a part of a larger bond. The need for an eventual Mueller ES is undeniable, but Mueller is also attracting families with young children at a rate that would promote the school with a greater imperative. Linked below is the letter that Catellus sent to the AISD to attempt to persuade a re-consideration of the Mueller ES.

There are several opportunities in the next two weeks to offer public input to the AISD Board of Trustees regarding the upcoming bond and Mueller ES. We will discuss how we can best address these input sessions.

5. Also related to Mueller is the AISD's consideration of adding a district-wide Performing Arts Center (PAC) to the upcoming school bond. Mueller has been publicly offered as a site for the PAC by local philanthropist Dick Rathgeber, who has suggested that he could donate five acres next to the proposed Mueller ES for the PAC. This will also be discussed Sunday.

Thanks, Dusty, for posting that link to Catellus's most recent letter to the AISD. I had not read it before. I'm glad that Catellus finally decided to compile their information and send it to the AISD because the demographic difference, as you posted elsewhere, is clearly higher with regard to elementary-age children. Let's hope that this letter, together with our combined efforts at the meetings next week, will make a difference!
