Transportation Committee meeting notes 18Nov2015
posted by Betsy on November 18th, 2015 4:32 PM
Transportation Committee Meeting notes18 Nov 2015- Phase 9a residential under construction (Zach Scott to Simond)- Start 9b (Simond to Philomena) - full buildout of Berkman - start next 60 days. Will also build Vaughan up to HEB- Finish Berkman late 2016- Ongoing work in Town Center continues. Roads around future theater will open in 30 days or so, but there may be intermittent closures due to adjacent building construction- Aldrich to 51st, Mueller to Philomena - finish about Spring 2016- Zach Scott extension to Manor is probably 2018 completion- Oct 2015 data compared to Dec 2013—- volumes increased from ~5000 to ~8500—- speed - <20% of people are complying with speed limit (30 mph), even on the southbound section south of Zach Scott where the roadside is fully developed.- 85% speed running about 35mph but no plans to change speed limit- Catellus not drawing final conclusions yet, still monitoring and using this data to anticipate what the needs might be in the future- Will continue working with group to see how to address issues- Northbound exhibiting more variation in the speeds, due in part perhaps to the interim conditions on the east side of Berkman- Talked about doing license plate studies to help discern origin/destination- Look at expanding use of bulbout islands (cycle track cuts through). Perhaps these could be rain gardens.- Concerns about exiting parked cars on Berkman - feels too close to traffic.- City may pilot the use of rectangular rapid flashing beacons at crosswalks - could be considered at select locations. (See http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/intersection/resources/techsum/fhwasa09009/ for more info)- Dynamic speed display signs (also collects data) - “Permanent installations” also may be piloted by the City. Idea is that the community pays fee to City and covers maintenance first two years. City maintains for years 2-3. If speeds aren’t dropping as a result of the installation, City may remove the sign. Pilot will help show whether these are effective when installed on a long-term basis.- Warrants for stop signs and signals were discussed at the Berkman meeting- Roundabouts - not off the table. Discussion about why not to do earlier? Catellus still thinks it’s premature. Girard wants to keep them on the table, but doesn’t want to preclude the possibility of rail going through it in the future. We’d lose the cycle track through the intersection if roundabouts are installed, but cyclists could merge with vehicular traffic or utilize the sidewalk - their choice.- Discussed other traffic calming tools that may be explored.- Anticipate keeping the working group in place for several years, as road evolves and conditions change.- Use of higher visibility crosswalk markings across Berkman was suggested.- Discussed whether cycle track could be extended southbound from Antone to Tom Miller? No… bike lane should be observed more after development goes in adjacent to Pecan Street office and on-street parking is utilized. The road narrows before Tom Miller and Catellus doesn’t believe there’s room for a cycle track.Aldrich roundabout - City looked at Catellus’ plans and says the money isn’t available to construct the design that was developed. They propose to make some interim improvements using striping and bumps to better channelize traffic. May allow parking along right curb on Aldrich as you enter Mueller to make the approach single lane. They’ll develop some drawings to review next meeting.Extending Lancaster bike lane - some previous opposition to getting rid of the parking. Public process would be required. Those parking spaces were counted in the number of spaces needed for the retail businesses, so Amica will talk to Nathan again to see whether removing them would even be possible. If it’s possible, suggestion to have public input process to consider removing parking and extending bike lanes.Signal going in on Barbara Jordan at Home Depot - poles up now and should be active within a few months.

Spraying in the Prairie: Compost tea being applied
posted by Janelle Dozier on June 11th, 2015 11:52 AM
Sustainable Growth Texas, a company that specializes in restoring degraded soils, will be spraying a type of compost tea on a section of the Mueller Prairie. They will be spraying from a truck on Tom Miller between Zach Scott and Antone. This is a NATURAL and ORGANIC product! It is not a chemical fertilizer or herbicide. It is food for soil microbes. The POA Landscape Committee is using this section of the prairie as a test to see if we should apply this technique to the rest of the prairie. The compost tea is intended to stimulate microbial life in the soil, which in turn should make nutrients more available to plants as well as increase the friability (looseness) of the soil. In addition, the variety of soil microbes increased are supposed to increase the nutrients needed by native prairie plants and be less hospitable to exotic invasive plants. After a suitable period of time (a year or more), the health of this section of the prairie will be evaluated. In addition, Sustainable Growth Texas will be injecting the pecan trees in the Southwest Greenway (Mueller Prairie) to improve their health. This is also a NATURAL and ORGANIC product. Go to sustainablegrowthtexas.com for detailed information about this approach to soil management. Janelle Dozier Mueller POA Landscape Committee

Nanny Available in Mueller or Central Austin

I currently have a nanny working for us part time - T/Th for 6 hours a day. If anyone needs a nanny who speaks Mandarin, Cantonese or Vietnamese she is available for part time or potentially full time employment in the near future. The only drawback is that she does not speak English, but she would be great for a child trying to learn one of the above languages. She drives and can also cook. Let me know if you're interested!

A long overdue thank-you to my mystery rescuer
posted by angierose on May 21st, 2014 8:42 AM
Dear neighbors, I am embarrassed to say that this thank-you should've been written almost a year ago, but maybe it will reach the right person anyway. Last August, I was running my dog by the Tower when I stomped on what I thought was a nail. It went through my shoe and (as it turns out) an inch into the soft arch of my foot. I immediately collapsed on the ground, blood gushing out of my foot. I tried to limp back home but it hurt so bad that I couldn't even hop on my unhurt foot. So I lay on the ground and yelled for help. Unusually, there was nobody around and I thought I was going to have to crawl home. Suddenly, a mysterious woman drove up. She said she had been driving by on Berkman when she saw me fall and she circled back to see if I was OK. When she saw that I wasn't, she put me in the back seat of her car, with some gym clothes on the floor to catch all the blood. And then she put my dirty and very confused ("wait, I thought we were running?") dog in her front seat! She drove me the block back to my house and left me and the dog in the car while she got my suddenly very concerned husband. He helped me out of her car and, with all of my crying and explanations and blood, my rescuer left without me even having the chance to ask her name! All I know is that she does not live in Mueller (but would like to) and drives a blue(?), 4-door, sort of new-ish car. I think she has a friend in Mueller? I hope I thanked her, I'm sure I did, but she deserves more than a mere thank-you. She was so nice and helpful and didn't blink at all the blood or the dirty dog. The fact that she even drove back around to check on me speaks volumes about her character. I hope she or someone who knows her sees this. To my mystery rescuer: thank you thank you thank you! I still think about your kindness and hope you see this. My foot is all better and I would love to treat you to dinner! Thanks for reading, Angie (on Antone by the Tower) P.S. It was NOT a nail. It was a piece of shrubbery that snapped off deep inside my foot. That and a sliver of flip-flop were stuck up there for 6 weeks. There was no running for a while, just a lot of hobbling around.

Grey and white cat - Antone & Tom Miller area of the hood
posted by Cyndy Dwyer on December 19th, 2013 6:12 PM
I have started to feed the grey and white cat that is living in the Antone & Tom Miller vicinity. Is anyone else feeding this cat? He/she appears to be fairly young. I have seen him/her several times over the past couple of months but didn't know if the cat belonged to someone in the neighborhood. I would LOVE to gain the trust of the cat and over time be able to run him or her to the vet for a complete check and spay or neuter. I have placed fresh water and dry food on my porch that faces Antone. The cat has discovered the bowls and has begin to eat here. In addition i have placed a tub with an old towel to provide some shelter. If anyone knows anything about his cat can you please share information? I want to make sure he/she is ok. Thanks! Cyndy

Update From Landscape Committee Nov 2013
posted by Sean Dwyer on November 16th, 2013 9:11 AM
I would also beg to differ on the effectiveness of the POA tree maintenance. Just walk south down Tom Miller Street just past Antone Street on the green space side. A few houses down from the corner basically until Berkman, you will see that most of the trees are pruned so high that you might think Truffula trees are making a come back. Some are pruned as high as 10 feet from the ground. For the most part they look very unhealthy from the aphid infestation that was not effectively dealt with also. What the pruning looks like to me is a series of contractors trying to justify their billing hours by continuing to prune higher and higher. If there are arborists on staff at some of these companies, they should visit the property to take note of the current health of some of the trees and make recommendations that should then be tracked.The current or past subs are not anyone I would want taking care of my trees.
Update From Landscape Committee Nov 2013
posted by Cyndy Dwyer on November 13th, 2013 1:25 PM
I don't know of anyone living in Mueller who is intentionally choosing to ignore their trees. Much has been mentioned on tree care over the past couple of years. The biggest issue we have with tree care in Mueller is TIMING. We received two notices from the POA this year indicating that the three trees we have on Antone needed trimming. We knew we needed to trim the trees. We have trees on both Tom Miller and Antone that have aphids that we battled two summers, without chemicals, utilizing beneficials. We also knew that summer and early fall was NOT the time to trim trees. Why on earth would we create wounds in a tree, in a drought, while battling an aphid infestation? From the look of many curbs over the past week we were not alone in our thinking. We did trim our trees when the time was right. We have oaks that bear nuts. As the season goes the branches of our trees become heavy with acorns. This is a good thing. Heavy limbs mean that our trees are healthy and doing what they are supposed to do. It also means that the branches droop. Late fall into winter is the BEST time to trim trees in Texas. I disagree that the landscape company is utilizing best practices when managing the trees in the neighborhood. The landscape company appears to raise the canopy on each and very tree in the neighborhood on a yearly basis. Gotta keep that grass... Have you seen the park side trees on Tom Miller? Some have lost so many branches they look damaged. If common sense is applied to this topic the POA will work with homeowners and encourage tree trimming in the fall and winter BEFORE spring buds on all trees. That doesn't mean that branches cannot be marked by homeowners throughout the year. Perhaps a homeowner can mark the limbs they plan to trim which plastic landscape tape. Folks walking by and the POA can see that a homeowner has marked limbs that they plan to trim when the time is right. Trees are meant to provide shade. A tree canopy will expand to provide shade for the root system. Shade is Texas is a GOOD thing. Proper pruning should NOT be a yearly thing. I hold firm that the POA should NOT get into the business of tree maintenance for the neighborhood. The POA should provide options to homeowners who do NOT want to maintain their trees. Education is a great start. The following is from Ehow. I typed in When to Trim Trees in Texas? This what popped up; Expert InsightThe best time to trim a tree in Texas is late winter or early spring, before the new growth begins, according to the Texas A&M System Agrilife Extension. Pruning at this time does not interfere with the tree's new growing season.WarningThe least desirable time to prune your Texas tree is after the new growth has already stated in the spring. Major pruning at this time puts too much stress on the trees roots and stems. You should also avoid heavy trimming in late summer. This may spur new growth that could make the tree more susceptible to damage from winter weather.ExceptionDo not not worry about the time of year when you need to trim off dead or damaged branches. Trim these immediately so they do not become entry points for disease or insect infestation.Read more: http://www.ehow.com/facts_7829022_time-trim-trees-texas.html#ixzz2kYOFu17O

Family duties kept me busy the rest of the evening and did not check again yesterday. It's now 7:30 am the following day and everything is working normally. I noticed several other neighbors in the alley struggling with their garage doors yesterday afternoon. I was able to tell several of them that the issue probably wasn't caused by their garage door batteries. As you'd expect, they were dubious and probably changed their batteries anyway. I would in their shoes. This is just too weird to believe.If this were caused by some military, police, or even emergency system, I would expect the problem would be much more widespread. Since it appears to be very localized, I suspect the source is very close to our house. Anyone near the Antone / Tom Miller alley using some sort of transmitter in the 300-400 MHz range yesterday?If anyone else had trouble yesterday, please leave a comment. I'd appreciate an address too so we can map out the affected area. With enough information, we can narrow down where the source is. Chris & Jenny
Electromagnetic Interference in the Neighborhood?
posted by Antone4 on September 11th, 2013 1:25 PM
From time to time (2-3 times a year), we experience a strange phenomenon where: 1) Our car remotes become completely non-functional. 2) Our garage door openers stop working 3) Our garage door openers start causing our neighbor's garage door to open/close. Sometimes (but not always), his garage door opener will open our door too. 4) Our neighbor's EV (a Chevy Volt) won't start. The problem is very localized. To test, I drove our car around to the front of the house, and the remotes worked normally. I then drove back into the alley behind our house and the remotes stopped working again. The garage door works fine when using the wired button, but not when using the remote. I promise, the batteries in all devices are fine. It usually happens in the afternoon and last for only a few hours. The alley is between Antone and Tom Miller. We noticed the problem again today at about 11:30am. As I write this, the problem is still going on. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Any ideas as to what's going on? Chris & Jenny
Wheelchair Man in Mueller?
posted by Carlo Savino on August 19th, 2013 6:20 AM
Does anyone know anything about the guy who maneuvers his wheelchair down Antone and Tom Miller, making several circuits a day? I had occasion to speak with him briefly and he seemed like a nice, articulate guy. I assume others have gotten to know him, even briefly...any details? What's his story? Anything we can do to help?

The new school year is an exciting time for teachers and students. Blanton teachers and staff have been very busy preparing for the first day of school for several weeks during the dog days of summer. This year, we have a new dismissal plan. To lessen the traffic congestion on Westminster during dismissal and to minimize the number of students crossing Westminster, the majority of dismissal pick up traffic has been moved to Blanton Drive behind the school. Please check out our website at antonelementary.weebly.com/" rel="nofollow">http://blantonelementary.weebly.com/ for more information about our new dismissal plan. Blanton's Campus Advisory Council will meet on the second Thursday of each month at 3:15. The Campus Advisory Council is a group of teachers, staff, parents, and community members who provide input to the principal about campus decisions. The meetings are held in the school library and are open to the public. If you would like to submit an item to the agenda, please contact the principal, John Baker, at john.baker@austinisd.org at least 48 hours before a scheduled meeting. If you have any concerns about the school as a parent or a community member, please contact the principal at the email above. Would you like to make a difference in your community? You can by becoming a volunteer Classroom Coach at Blanton. Help neighborhood students build a strong foundation for literacy each week through our partnership with Austin Partners in Education. APIE’s Classroom Coaching program is part tutoring and part mentoring. Volunteers support second grade students by helping them to improve their reading skills in English or Spanish. Our program success is due entirely to caring and consistent volunteers who receive training through our program about how to support the students. Classroom Coaches provide the weekly individualized attention crucial to student achievement. Why second grade? Research shows that students who read on grade level by third grade are more likely to graduate high school.

This is in the alley behind 2109 Antone. The structure of the couch is in great shape, just could use a slip cover.
Less-than-flattering piece on the new HEB
posted by C. Frimire on July 27th, 2013 7:56 AM
Last night I went to the HEB, but there was so much going on that I couldn't get a fair read on the place, so I set my alarm clock for 5:30 this morning, rode my bike over, and was waiting at the door by 6am along with a handful of fellow early birds ready to catch our worms.I really didn't need anything, so I wandered around with an empty basket making note of where things were. Here are my first impressions:The Bike Rack is nice. I put a little air in my tires and even tightened a couple of hex bolts. This put me in a good mood, but I'm afraid this was the high point.Walking in I was struck by how uninviting the produce section was. And though I'm not a grocer, I would think that for your Grand Opening Weekend Extravaganza you'd want to make this place a magical kingdom of green, red, and yellow stacks of fresh and beautiful fruits and vegetables. Instead there were a couple of racks of sad looking produce being rearranged by two even sadder looking pimply faced kids. I had planned to peruse this section for half an hour, but instead it took me about 2 minutes to ascertain that there was nothing there of interest. Onward past the bakery, fish and meat and then I was in the midst of frozen/refrigeration row with a shockingly large portion of space dedicated to pre-made meals like lunchables and other convenience oriented mal-nutritional delivery devices. My mood was now completely deflated. What the hell is going on here?Nothing else of interest, so I sought out the Bulk section, which was striking for its lack of offerings. My question "What the hell is going on here?" now started looping over and over in my head. I decided that I'd get a bagel and go home to make breakfast,Back to the bakery I went, where you can buy any imaginable arrangement of sugar infused crisco on a pedestal of cake, but they don't sell individual plain bagels. Instead you have to buy a bag of 5 and they only had blueberry. My internally looping question now spilled out into the verbal universe and fell unfairly on the innocent ears of the unsuspecting baker's assistant, "What the Hell is going on here?" I apologized and left the store.By now I really wanted a bagel, so I rode my bike over to Hancock, came home and just ate a delicious breakfast.I have two Theories to answer my own question:Theory 1 (the optimistic one): The store is new and it takes time for a store to air out that new cookie cutter feel and actually discover how it can serve the community. Some dude or dudette in corporate HEB Land down in San Antone, made the initial decisions regarding inventory and priority for this new store. Now we have a Store Manager on the ground and hopefully that individual will hear and respond to our requests, and discover what we are and are not buying. Theory 2 (the pessimistic one): HEB knows exactly what it's doing and has leveraged the opportunity presented by the Mueller community and its developers in order to service Greater East Austin, and according to they're calculus, the majority of East Austin residents want Lunchables and sugar infused Crisco treats, and they apparently don't give a rat's ass about fresh produce, bulk goods, or plain bagels. So HEB Executives slap on a thin veneer of luxury to satisfy the architects, and then serve up the grocery store equivalent of particle board. I hope my first Theory is right.
