MNA General Meeting Minutes for Sept. 18, 2010
by Drew on September 21st, 2010

MNA meetings are held at 10:00 AM on the 3rd Saturdays of month, usually in Wooten Park. We are working on getting the hanger for meetings.

Dennis Mick opened the meeting. Kerry Fisher provided an MNA budget report.

Neighborhood Night Out on October 5: Kat Malcom spoke about plans for the National Neighborhood Night Out on Tuesday, October 5. Catellus will be sponsoring events (and providing ice cream) in Ella Wooten park from 6:00PM to 7:00PM. Then from 7:00PM to 9:00PM the individual blocks will have their own potluck style Meet & Greet.

Boomer’s Progressive Dinner on October 9: Kat Malcom also spoke about the Mueller Boomer’s “progressive dinner” that will be held on Saturday, October at four different houses.

Front Porch Flyer Newsletter: Drew Harris made a call for submissions of articles and photos to the newsletter, as well as a call for volunteers to help put the newsletter together.

Mueller Education Action Team: Rob Clinchard spoke about the MEAT group’s current focus. Rob spoke about the option of having a “flex” middle school that could offer grades between 3-8th grade, depending on the need. Rob also mention that they were seeking to learn from the Stapleton Development in Denver, which now has 3 schools.

Guest Speaker Jim Walker’s Question & Answer: Jim Walker, who has been involved with the Mueller development for 15 years and has served as the former chair of the RMMA PIAC, was the guest speaker. He spoke briefly about lessons learned from the first few years of Mueller’s development (mainly that “persistence is required”), and then opened to questions from attending MNA members. Highlights included:

  • Nothing was currently limiting development east of Berkman other than Catellus’ phasing plans

  • Broader use of the hanger and a grocery store in the Market District is still “imminent”

  • A discussion of pedestrian traffic crossing Airport Blvd.

  • A discussion of making sure that people moving to Mueller know about the basic principles behind Mueller

  • A discussion of structured parking vs. the current surface parking in the current employment center around Dell Children’s hospital

  • Austin Film Studios is now more or less a permanent neighbor, and they are still trying to figure out how to incorporate a walled-off film studio into a pedestrian friendly Mueller development

  • There are still no further details regarding the district-wide school performing arts center that might be located.


  • The meeting ended at approximately 11:00 am.
