Let's Bring the Urban Rail to Northeast Austin!
I could play devil's advocate (and have) for both routes. They are both on the Project Connect map. Regardless of which route is picked for the initial phase, I urge Muellerites to support the rail referendum.Longer version here:http://ww...

Do You Want Urban Rail in Mueller?
I’m not sure there are people opposing rail to Mueller per se – but there are people who prefer Guadalupe/Lamar as the first phase, as opposed to Mueller. And they have some good arguments on their side. After all, there’s a reason ...

Questions from potential Muellerite - new bus service?
Thanks Betsy.That's one of my main concerns - Mueller would be a huge stretch for us, and the whole point would be less car-dependence, so the current lack of transit is worrisome. I remember at one point someone reported that Mueller woul...

Questions from potential Muellerite - new bus service?
Thanks for the responses, both online and offline, everyone!I do have another question - is there more bus service planned in the near future for Mueller. I know rail may come one day, but I was surprised by how poorly served by the bus Mu...

I have a couple questions from the perspective of a potential Muellerites, partially my own, partially points others have brought up. 1) (This is an honest question; I am not trying to stir the pot, I’m sure other potential Muellerites...

Remodelling and garage conversions
Hi, I have a couple questions regarding deed restrictions: 1) What are restrictions on remodeling, particularly in townhouses and Mueller houses? I ask because the most affordable ones that come on the market are 2 bedrooms, but often wi...

Support Urban Rail in Mueller at the Transit Work Group Mtg 6/22/12
I would say the answer is we should be building rail to Mueller AND on the South Congress/North Lamar route. Of course, I’m making the mistake of using common sense. Of the two, I think there’s a stronger pure transit argument for Nor...

Property taxes and affordable housing
Just to be clear, I have no doubt the Mueller foundation is doing what it can to keep homes in the affordable program. But by definition if some are being sold as market homes, then Mueller will fall below the 25% affordable, even if we co...

Property taxes and affordable housing
That is really disappointing news regarding affordables already going back to the market. Sure, it chips away a bit at the very top of the gap, but it also means Mueller will already have dropped below the 25% affordable goal by the time t...

Urban Rail in Austin in our lifetime?
From what I understand, there is a year or two of work that doesn't require the additional funding, so this wouldn't necesarily delay the opening date. The real hurdle is still getting people to vote for it when it does come up in the next...

Yeah, there was pretty obvious starter route (the #1) and neither the urban rail proposal or the Red Line serve it, thought the urban rail sort of gets the same area. Not to be melodramatic, but Austin may well be paying the cost of the 20...

There are few things in life for which I can claim genuine insider info, but this is marginally one of them, and I've been told the trend line on likelihood of urban rail being on the ballot in November is downward and under 50%.Austin is i...

I wanted to bring up something that hasn't been publicized much, primarily for the gapsters who follow these threads but don't post. In fact I didn't know about it until someone form Mueller contacted me about it. (Thanks, I appreciate it...

On why it’s important and why I still care.
It’s been suggested that I “let it go” so I'm going to try and explain why I think this is important in the larger sense. As I’ve said, I’m a huge new urbanism geek and as an environmentalist I believe it’s vitally important th...

Getting to a couple of specific points, but trying to bundle them to be at least somewhat less longwinded. To Smootyhoo’s point about marginal cost of adding square footage and underlying cost of land: I was talking about Mueller hous...

First, thanks to Rahm McDaniel for sticking up for me and, much more importantly, the points about The Gap and fulfilling the New Urbanist goals of Mueller. He’s a better messenger than me, I’ll readily admit. I'll try to get to som...

Mueller Houses and The Gap
Well, I'm a little late commenting on this. To be honest, as Mueller continues to fall short of the New Urbanist ideal (no elementary, no town center, no rail, etc.) the original appeal of living there has dropped off too. And of course T...

Next Phase of Mueller
Probably not surprisingly, I completely agree. I was asked earlier in the thread why I don't just trust Mueller/Catellus to live up to the original promises eventually and this is a good example. It's not that these two lots are going to ...
