Landscape Committee Meeting Notes (8/7/14)
posted by ret1ree00 on August 10th, 2014 11:11 PM
The POA Landscape Committee met on Thursday August 7th at 4pm. Landscape Committee meets the first Thursday of each month. Members present; Nikki Truskett, Regina Emmett, Joe Denton, Bill Kirwin, Barbara Austin (Rvi rep.) and Jennifer Harvey (POA Manager). Dusty Harshman, Janelle Dozier, Bobby Gierisch and Helen Mason unable to attend (vacations etc.) Agenda Topics: (1) Review of RFP for Landscape Maintenance Contracts 2015. Five proposals were received and possible continuation with Valley Crest as 6th option. Top three will be asked to make presentations at September Meeting. Committee recommendation to go to POA Board in October. Irrigation repairs and ability to respond is a committee concern. (2) New Discussion Items (a.) Orchard- Orchard will be installed in the greenway at Berkman and Manor. Site preparation is underway. Orchard will include pears, peaches, figs, loquat and pecan. Possibly olives. (b.) Community Garden- future community garden to be installed in park by new swimming pool. Garden will be fenced but available to the public as well as Mueller Community. General Discussion: -Tree Replacements/Plant Replacements. Community concerns carried forward regarding need to replace dead trees in the common green space. To date in 2014, 40 trees have been replaced with an additional 20+ needing replacements. Some trees will be replaced under warranty. Budget ($30k) has already been exceeded for tree replacements but plans are to continue with replacements this fall. -Overhanging trees and vegetation onto sidewalks continues to be a problem in the community. -Dead landscape plantings in common areas will be replaced. Estimates for replacements has been requested from landscape company. Landscape company is to provide recommendations for similar or better suited plantings. COMMENT; I want to add. Replacement of trees and plantings is not a part of the routine maintenance provided under the landscape contract. Replacements are handled under separate contracts and may not be done by existing maintenance company. However the recent mulching in the parks and common areas are a part of the routine contract. -Maintenance Issues in Southwest Greenway: Committee has requested the consultant from the Lady Bird Wildflower Center be contacted with questions regarding the massive invasion of Poverty Weed in the Southwest Greenway and specifically in the Tall Grass Prairie in the "bowl".

It's been exciting to watch the community grow and see the principles of good urban design at work. Mueller is proof that planning and teamwork make a difference in the quality of neighborhood life. The Mueller Neighborhood Association provides a forum for the entire neighborhood to continue to build community, to understand issues and share information affecting residents, and to weigh in with a voice when residents need or want that. This is especially important as the neighborhood grows, and more systematic efforts are needed to get input from all. I'd welcome the opportunity to be a part of this effort. I bring professional experience with education, communication, and contract/project management that I believe can help support the work of the group. Equally as important, I bring a sincere desire to work for a neighborly quality of life.Ani ColtHi, I’m Ani Colt. After 30 some years in the northeast, I visited Mueller the Christmas of 2011. My daughter lives in Windsor Park and she and her partner brought me over to lure me to Austin. When I got back to Connecticut, I read about the vision of Mueller on the internet and found Wildflower Terrace. Bullseye. Because of my long desire to help create what I call intentional community, I got it all together and moved in April, 2012. Since getting here, I’m helping start a Time Xchange at Wildflower Terrace and have lead one of our monthly literary salons to introduce the book I published in 2011. In addition, I have taken a rep position with Go Local Austin. Attracting and supporting local businesses can help Mueller’s unique potential and serve our residents.My previous career consulting big food and beverage companies develop new products helped me gain a keen understand of the importance of listening to people. Serving on the MNA Steering Committee offers the opportunity to utilize my decades of experience. If elected, I intend to help implement the visions and economic realities that have brought us to share this growing neighborhood and evolving multi-faceted community.Grant FisherI am interesting on serving on the Mueller Neighborhood Association (MNA) Steering Committee to help provide a better neighborhood for the Mueller residents. As a pioneer resident and a founding member of the MNA, I have worked on neighborhood issues since the inception of the MNA. I served as Chair of the MNA for the first three years, and recently I am serving as one of the ANC delegates from Mueller. I look forward to being able to work with the MNA on neighborhood and local issues, and hope to continue my service.Corky Hilliard (I).I won the lottery and became a Mueller Pioneer in 2008. This past year I have served on the MNA Steering committee and am asking to continue my involvement. I have worked for the past 5 years on issues important to Mueller residents and community. I was honored to have been the first Mueller resident appointed to the Mueller Commission (PIAC) and served there for almost 3 years. While serving on the PIAC I worked to open the Hangar for resident use, the substation/golf course upgrades, and increasing the resident voice on the city commission. I have been involved in several Mueller initiatives and the Pecan Street Project. Austin community involvements have included board positions with SafePlace, the Austin Film Society, and currently the ECHO board which advocates for ending homelessness. My business is focused on strategic planning, executive leadership and community building. I advocate those ideals in my Mueller community work. I'm asking for your support to continue my work on the MNA Steering Committee providing a strong voice for resident involvement.Kathleen ‘kat’ MalcomHello neighbors! My name is Kathleen ‘kat’ Malcom and I live on Camacho St. I began stalking the Mueller development in 2006 before the streets were installed, and met several of my current neighbors back then, as we shared our passion for shaping Mueller. I received my Pioneer lottery number in 2007, and built my home here in 2008. The Mueller community has exceeded my expectations, and in return I enjoy contributing to its well-being. I became the Upper Camacho Block Captain in 2009, and have previously served two years on the MNA Steering Committee, where I chaired the Block Captain committee. I have also been a member of the POA Resident’s Activity Committee for the last three years, and I created the Mueller Boomer Baby Social Club in 2009 which is thriving today. I would be happy to join the MNA Steering Committee in 2013. My goal is to extend Mueller’s visibility and engagement within our adjacent neighborhoods, and for Mueller to become a contributing member of the East Austin community. Thanks!Kevin McGillicuddy (I)My wife Tish and I have been residents at Mueller (living on Pinckney St.) since the Spring of 2009 and have lived in Austin since 1975. As a recovering lawyer, I work in the insurance claims business. I greatly enjoy living at Mueller and am standing for election for a second year on the Steering Committee so that I can continue contributing to the life of this great community.Dennis Mick (I)I retired in 2008 after a career in advertising and public relations for large companies. Carole and I sold our suburban house and moved to Mueller (4305 Scales) the following year, and we are so happy with that decision. We significantly reduced our carbon footprint but enlarged our social circle. We are involved in a number of Mueller activities, and love the direction of the neighborhood and the involvement of many of our neighbors. I have served on the Steering Committee of the MNA for two years.David NeiderI’m originally from Urbana Illinois where I grew up and went to college. After graduating I moved to Austin because I liked the city and I had a job lined up at Dell. I have been living in Austin and working for Dell for the past ~12 years. I currently work as a quality engineer, outside of work I enjoy local live music, playing basketball and classic cars.I became interested in moving to Mueller prior to ground breaking and entered myself into the Mueller pioneer lottery. I choose not to build at that time and later moved to Mueller as a renter in August 2011. I moved in to a Mueller House in April of this year. Since ~June I have been serving as the Mueller House Block Captain. I’m interested in serving on the MNA board as I’m interested in finding ways to make our neighborhood a better place to live including: influencing new development, finding ways to build community and keeping our neighborhood safe. Dave Neider 2012 Simond Unit D.James NorteyHello neighbors! My name is James Nortey and I am excited for the chance to join the Mueller Neighborhood Association (“MNA”) Steering Committee (“SC”). I am a young attorney at Andrews Kurth LLP. I’ve lived in Mueller as a tenant in the Mosaic apartments at 4600 Mueller Blvd. for 13 months and have been a member of MNA for almost a year. In this capacity I’ve served as a member of the MNA External Relations Committee. I am currently in the process of purchasing a home in Mueller that will be complete in mid-2013.I am eager to join the SC because I am passionate about community engagement, the development of our neighborhood, and strategic planning and growth based on new urbanism principles. As a member of the SC I intend to listen to the concerns of my fellow neighbors and be a voice for tenants and young professionals in Mueller. My top priorities are: 1) Building and maintaining positive relations with other East Austin neighborhoods; 2) Advocate for affordable housing options in Mueller; and 3) Help make Mueller the most walkable and most livable neighborhood in Austin.Sandy ParksJuly 9, 2008 I made one of the best decisions of my life. That day I signed a contract to build a DW row house on Zach Scott in the new Mueller neighborhood. I had lived and worked in Boise, Idaho for the past 28 years, but came to visit family in Austin two-three times a year. After the airport was moved to Bergstrom, I would drive by the “old airport site” to see what was happening, and I kept up with the Mueller project updates online. I had lived in Austin in the 60s as a UT student, and again in the 70s, with a very young family. Austin was to be my retirement home. I just made the decision a little sooner than I expected.For the past 3 ½ years I have been “commuting” to my CPA practice in Boise. I recently retired, and Austin is home full time now. My retirement goals include learning and relearning all things Texas, participating in the Austin community, understanding our unique Mueller community issues, and becoming involved. Since 2009, I have been a member of the POA budget committee. I am truly in awe of the Mueller pioneers, and all the Mueller residents, who have devoted so much time, thought, and energy into making this a truly unique and wonderful neighborhood……thank you!!Janeka RectorMy name is Janeka Rector and I am thrilled to be nominated to serve this amazing community. As a new resident, I hope to bring a fresh perspective and genuine enthusiasm to the Committee. I will be moving into the new phase on McBee Street in mid-January. See you soon!Belinda RobertsI have lived in Mueller since 2009. We are the house with the monkey on Gochman Street. Over the past few years, I have become pretty involved with our neighborhood. With the help of other parents and Mueller neighbors, I have helped put on many family friendly events including the Halloween Carnival and Mueller Egg Scramble. Through these events, I have gotten to know so many families and individuals who live in our unique neighborhood. What I found is that many of my neighbors have lots of questions about what is going on. I like to help answer these questions or provide information to help the dialogue and there is no better way to do this than to be involved. Outside of our neighborhood, I am an active CASA volunteer. I sit on the boards of the East Communities YMCA and St. George's Episcopal School. Additionally, I raise money for the Austin Children's Shelter by serving on the committee that hosts the annual New Wave Ball. I am attorney by training but currently put my "evil powers" to good use in a strictly volunteer setting. I'd like serve our neighborhood better by serving on the Mueller Neighborhood Steering Committee for 2013.Kathy Sokolic (I)Kathy is currently serving as Vice Chair of the Steering Committee. Kathy is involved in many aspects of Mueller, from volunteering at the Egg Scramble to helping with the Front Porch Flyer. Kathy has worked hard to extend MNA membership throughout this vibrant and diverse community and increase participation in MNA events and programs. She believes in working with everyone from Catellus to the City of Austin to the surrounding neighborhoods to achieve the long-term goals of Mueller. On top of these efforts, she’s passionate about bringing and keeping the people of Mueller together.Kathy would be thrilled to be able to serve her third term on Steering Committee and thanks you for your vote!Diana “Dee Dee” WalkerI am very flattered to be considered for a position on the Mueller Neighborhood Association Steering Committee. As the property manager of Wildflower Terrace and a resident, my interest and concerns are two fold. I have always been an active participant in local affairs. I have been an active member of the Austin Apartment Association, serving as committee chair, board of directors, and executive committee. I have served on the Home Owners Association of my last single-family home. Member of the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce and Faith in Action-Senior Access Advisory Board. I learned early in life that you more you give, the better your return!Serving on the numerous committees, boards and other groups provided great experience in achieving compromise solutions with "win-win" outcomes. The diverse population of Wildflower Terrace strengthens my ability to communicate to individuals from all walks of life. Part of my work history prior to Wildflower Terrace included other new construction developments, giving me experience in zoning variance issues and neighborhood opposition to the planned building. I look forward to offering my experience and service to this amazing community.

MNA Steering Committee minutes - 1 June 2010

Reminder that the Mueller Neighborhood Association (MNA) steering committee (SC) is open to all MNA members. The next steering committee meeting will be held on June 29, 2010 at 4124 Lawless at 7:00 p.m. MNA Steering committee Meeting Minutes – 1 June 2010 Steering Committee Attendees: Grant Fisher, Betsy Hilton, Kat Malcom, Kerry Fisher, Kim Wine, Dusty Harshman, Drew Harris, Mike McGovern, Bobby Gierisch, Ann Jerome and Cliff Spinac SC members absent: Timothy Brummett and Rob Clinchard Guests: Ashley Fisher, Chris Stewart Agenda: I.Welcome & Introductions II.Treasurer’s Report – Balance is $2341.23 after paying for the recent edition of the Front Porch Flyer. We haven't yet purchased the layout software for the publication. III.Existing Business a. Mueller re-subdivision. In addition to changing the use of a part of the block on Hermalinda, Catellus plans to convert 2 lots for Mueller homes (6 units per lot) on Mattie, between Camacho and Simond, to 4 lots for custom homes. Concerns were discussed about the process used by Catellus to bring the Mattie change to the Planning Commission, as this change in use was apparently never brought to PIAC for discussion. The public hearing with the Planning Commission is set for June 8, at the same time as PIAC's next meeting. The steering committee voted to send a letter to the planning commission stating our objection to PIAC being left out of the process, and requesting a postponement on this item until the proper coordination process can be followed. We have many unanswered questions that deserve open discussion and debate. Motion was made by Kim Wine, seconded by Mike McGovern and passed unanimously. Grant will draft the letter. b. MNA elections will be held at the June 12 general membership meeting. Nominations are still needed for the 13 slots. If you're interested in serving, please email Ann Jerome at annwjerome@gmail.com. c. Pecan Street Project – We still haven't heard who the Pecan Street board selected to serve on the Executive Committee. Grant is waiting for a return call from Brewster McCracken. d. Yard Sale was a great success. Areas for improvement included having it at a cooler time of year, and traffic flow for those setting up their booths. In light of the rainout the first weekend, it was scheduled that some time certain the day prior be established when a final decision will be made on whether to postpone the event. The booths organized by the Lawless block seemed to work well... perhaps next year more blocks will go in together on a booth. IV. Upcoming Meetings – General meeting will be June 12. We discussed having coffee & doughnuts as a treat for those who attend. V. Open comments: a. No one has heard of a decision by AISD on where to locate the new performing arts center. b. Meeting on the design of the Austin Energy Substation has been scheduled for June 5 from 10:00 a.m. - noon. This station will be visible from future phases of Mueller, and by traffic on Manor Road. Residents are encouraged to attend. Details are posted under Events on muellercommunity.com. The meeting adjourned about 8:05 p.m.

Bobby,Well, I'll bite. So much for my sleuth work, as I am finding for Texas State holidays Cesar Chavez day on March 31 per:http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/ref/abouttx/holidays.htmlWhich obviously is not next week. So, my guess is: Bobby Gierisch's birthday!(What is the name of the sport where 2 people square off and play chess for a proscribed time and next duke it out in the boxing ring, and then return to chess again, and so on? Was that invented in March in Texas?)

The next steering committee meeting will be held on Nov. 3, 2009 at 4124 Lawless at 7:00 p.m. MNA Steering committee Meeting Minutes – 29 September 2009 Steering Committee Attendees: Rob Clinchard, Grant Fisher, Drew Harris, Betsy Hilton, Kat Malcom, Bobby Gierisch, Dusty Harshman, Ann Jerome, Mike McGovern, Kerry Fisher, Timothy Brummett and Kim Wine SC members absent: Cliff Spinac Guests: Elizabeth Butman, Jennifer Harvey Agenda: I. Welcome & Introductions II. Treasurer’s Financial Report – Bank balance is $1044.61 with one newsletter still to be published out of these funds. III. Minutes – Minutes of the Sept. 1, 2009 steering committee meeting were approved without changes. Grant had been advised that some numbers in the Sept. 12 general meeting minutes were incorrect. He’ll forward those changes to Betsy and the minutes were approved. [Later communication revealed that the minutes correctly reflect what was stated at the meeting so they will not be changed after all. If incorrect figures were reported to membership regarding the PIAC update, corrections can be brought forward in a future meeting.] IV. Existing Business a. Membership Committee Report – Ann Jerome i. Mueller Night Out – In conjunction with National Neighbor Night Out (http://www.nationaltownwatch.org/nno/), held October 6 in Austin. Block captains will organize block events from 6:00PM to 7:00PM. From 7:00PM to 8:00PM, Catellus will serve ice cream & popsicles in Ella Wooten park. ii. The Block Captain meet & greet hosted by Ann Jerome and Kat Malcolm was a big success. Fourteen people attended. They discussed the scope of block captain activities and brainstormed some best practices. iii. Welcome Postcard – 200 cards have been printed and distributed. More will be available at Mueller Night Out. b. Budget i. Mission discussion tabled because we ran out of time. We briefly discussed having an separate meeting for this purpose. ii. Treasurer discussion also tabled iii. Front Porch Flyer (FPF). The FPF will grow by 4 pages, which will allow us to sell more advertising, and provide more information. There was discussion regarding if, and how much, advertising space should be withheld from annual sales for new businesses that come in during the year. Estimated net revenue to the MNA from the FPF in 2010 is about $700. V. POA update – Jennifer Harvey attended and fielded general questions from the SC. a. Pool – Pool will close to residents at the end of October. Trouble with the lighting (inside and outside the pool itself) will be fixed after the pool closes. It appears to be an electrical issue and would require closing the pool for about a week to troubleshoot. b. Dead trees – Catellus is planning to replace the dead trees at Ella Wooten Park. c. Exposed irrigation lines will deteriorate due to sun exposure. The POA will address when mulching is done in the Spring but concern was expressed that the damage to the lines will have already been done. d. Discussion about whether road repairs on Hargis had been completed. There’s still a low spot in the street. e. POA has a variance for watering. This only applies to public areas maintained by the POA, not individual residences. POA will water turf on Fridays and tree bubblers will run Tuesday and Wednesday nights. f. Discussion about the possible remediation in the Southwest Greenway near Berkman to deal with the Johnson Grass problem. Jennifer had not heard of any plans. g. The process for gaining approval for walks/runs in Mueller was discussed and more notification for residents was requested. The POA is getting lots of requests to use Lake Park for events and are working with the City on these. Guidelines may be needed in the future as the park wasn’t intended to be a major event area for the City. It was recommended that the PIAC be notified of the issues so they can help us coordinate with the City to develop guidelines. h. Major events involving food, alcohol or large numbers of people require City as well as POA approval. i. Restrooms at Lake Park are now locked at night to deter vandalism. Sinks will be repaired soon. j. One member passed along a request for more poop/scoop bags in the parks, or restocking more often. The potential for residents supplying plastic grocery bags for this purpose, to lower the cost to the POA were discussed. VI. Upcoming Meetings The October 10th general meeting of the MNA will be at 10:00 a.m at the picnic tables on Pinckney Street next to the pool. Greg Weaver, VP with Catellus, will attend and provide an update on the implementation of the master plan. VII. Additional Business/Open Comments a. Several PIAC subcommittees will start meeting this month. One on use of the hangar, and the other on neighborhood contact teams. Watch for more information from these groups b. Parking – The POA Parking Advisory Group will host a town hall style meeting on October 21 at Asbury United Methodist Church to get input on their proposed changes in parking rules. After community input is obtained and considered, the group will make their recommendations to Catellus. The meeting will be in the evening but the time hasn’t been determined. Watch for more information online. c. The PIAC is meeting with surrounding neighborhoods to get feedback on how the Mueller development is affecting the neighbors. SC members thought it would be good if a few of us could also attend to strengthen relationships with our neighbors. The meeting adjourned about 8:30 p.m.
Steering Committee Meeting minutes - Sept 1, 2009
posted by ret1ree00 on September 2nd, 2009 8:53 PM
Reminder that the Mueller Neighborhood Association (MNA) steering committee (SC) is open to all MNA members. The next steering committee meeting will be held on September 29, 2009 at 4124 Lawless. The start time is to be announced – probably 6:30 p.m. rather than the normal 7:00. MNA Steering committee Meeting Minutes – 1 September 2009 Steering Committee Attendees: Rob Clinchard, Grant Fisher, Drew Harris, Betsy Hilton, Kat Malcom, Bobby Gierisch, Dusty Harshman, Ann Jerome, Mike McGovern, Cliff Spinac and Kim Wine SC members absent: Timothy Brummett, Kerry Fisher Guests: Roger Seibert, Kevin Ludlow, Jerry Perkins, Dennis Mick, Hon Agenda: I. Welcome & Introductions II. Austin Neighborhoods Council (ANC) MNA lost our representative on the ANC. ANC participation is a good way to develop alliances and they have good programming at meetings. Jerry Perkins volunteered to represent the MNA on the ANC and was elected with a unanimous vote. It was noted that since the MNA has bylaws preventing us from taking a stand on political issues, etc., our representative can not vote on some ANC motions. III. Minutes – Minutes of the July 28, 2009 steering committee meeting and the August 8, 2009 general meeting were approved without changes. IV. Existing Business a. Membership Committee Report – Ann Jerome i. Mueller Night Out – In conjunction with National Neighbor Night Out (http://www.nationaltownwatch.org/nno/), held October 6 in Austin instead of the August date used in the rest of the country, block captains will be working to organize block events from 6:00PM to 7:00PM. From 7:00PM to 8:00PM, Catellus will serve ice cream in Ella Wooten park. Plan now to attend! ii. Kat Malcolm has been working to get volunteer block captains lined up for the areas without a volunteer, and is planning a ‘meet and greet’ for block captains to share best practices. The membership committee as a whole will continue to promote this effort. Refer to Kat’s messages on mc. com to volunteer. iii. Welcome Postcard – The committee is planning to develop a postcard that could be distributed to people as they move in. The card would contain key phone numbers, websites and other information of interest to new residents. It would also be distributed to current residents when it’s first available to be sure that people not on the mc.com website get the information. The steering committee unanimously approved a motion to fund up to $150 in expenses to print these cards. b. Security issues - The steering committee discussed the role of the MNA in ongoing security issues. Neighborhood watch signs were discussed with mixed feelings about how effective these might be. The MNA plans to continue to invite our representatives of the Austin Police Department to general meetings to discuss security issues. Hopefully, concerned residents will also attend the meeting on Sept. 2 at Asbury Methodist Church, sponsored by Catellus. IV. New Business Front Porch Flyer – This community newsletter is published by a group of hard-working volunteers (listed in the Flyer) and through ad sales, is able to contribute to the overall budget of the MNA. Two current steering committee members are actively involved with the development of the Flyer. The Flyer currently limits ad space to 25% of the publication, but they are considering recommending increasing the Flyer from 8 to 12 pages with an allowance for 33% ad space. This would allow space for more advertisers (there is currently a waiting list) and bring more revenue to the MNA. There was some discussion about a budget for the newsletter which resulted in a motion later in the meeting. IV. Upcoming Meetings Frost Bank has offered to host the Sept. 12 general meeting of MNA. The steering committee voted to accept their offer. The MNA meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. Frost Bank is planning some type of community event afterward, beginning at 11:00 a.m. Check mc.com for more information as plans develop. V. Additional Business/Open Comments a. Kevin Ludlow spoke with the steering committee about the addition of advertising on the right side of mc.com. He charges advertisers for space and wanted to see whether steering committee members were concerned that he was competing with ad space in the Flyer or otherwise thought he owed some revenue to the MNA. There was agreement that the two aren’t really in competition, in fact there might be away to sell a package deal with ad space on both mediums. Kevin noted that mc.com has on the order of 20,000 unique visitors per month! All agreed to keep the dialogue open on this topic as both the Flyer and mc.com continue to mature. b. Budgeting – The MNA budget runs on a calendar year. A motion passed unanimously that the steering committee should develop a MNA budget for 2010 and that as part of that budget process, the editorial board of the Front Porch Flyer should submit a business plan and budget for 2010. All want to be sure that sufficient ad revenue from the Flyer is reserved throughout the budget year to publish the newsletter each quarter. There was also discussion that it would be easier for event organizers to be paid a set amount by the MNA in advance of an event, rather than bring receipts for reimbursement after the event. Many folks in the past year had authorization for reimbursement prior to an event, but never had time/energy to submit the receipts. Budgeting will be discussed in more detail at the next steering committee meeting. The meeting adjourned about 8:30 p.m. Minutes by Betsy

Welcome & Introductions II. Financial Report a. Dusty and Kerry are working through the transition of treasurer duties. A proposal was made to secure a PO Box so a consistent address for MNA could be established. This proposal passed unanimously later in the meeting. b. Membership participation was discussed. Several streets have no members of MNA. Dues is minimal ($10/year) and the MNA will have more clout if it represents a higher percentage of the community. This is an area that the membership committee will try to address. III. Minutes – June minutes of the steering committee meeting were approved without changes. IV. New Business a. Pool Hours - Jennifer Harvey was unable to attend but she provided Grant with an update on current discussion about the pool hours. See the attachment (at the end of this message) for her response. b. Solar installation approval - Jennifer Harvey provided Grant with an update on procedures for getting HOA approval for solar roof installations. See attachment. c. Schools – Kim Wine is working on the agenda and planning for the August MNA general meeting that will focus on the school issue. She’s invited several key speakers and has arranged for Jim Walker to moderate the discussion. The focus of the discussion is not just on the immediate issue regarding the closure of Pearce middle school (which will impact future phases of Mueller), but on what we can do to help improve schools in East Austin. The meeting will be in the Mosaic apartments. Kim also plans to create a school/education group on muellercommunity.com. d. Welcome committee – Bobby Gierisch expressed his willingness to turn over the leadership of this committee and Ann Jerome agreed to step in. Kat Malcolm volunteered to be a central liaison for block captains if needed. e. Phase 3 development – There was discussion about the lag in starting Phase 3 infrastructure. Builders are nearly out of inventory. It’s thought that this will be a topic at the next PIAC meeting. f. Visioning process – more ideas (inform, organize, entertain, represent) were discussed but we were running out of time. Bobby suggested with have a facilitated exercise to discern the vision for MNA. IV. Upcoming Meetings a. MNA general meeting is at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 8th at the Mosaic apartments. The focus will be on schools/education and how we can get involved. V. Additional Business/Open Comments a. SC members unanimously approved the motion to secure a PO Box at $40/year. b. Tim Brummett is working on efforts to promote Mueller, including notifying the media about the July 30th meeting with Meridian Solar and the unveiling of the solar sunflowers along IH 35. c. Drew mentioned that the Front Porch Flyer should be out soon - perhaps at the Aug. 8th meeting. ATTACHMENT MNA Steering Committee minutes 28 July 2009 from Jennifer Harvey: 1. What is the possibility, if any, of keeping the pool open for a longer season for residents? (potentially on a "reduced schedule" MWF, etc.) What is the possibility of keeping it open year round for lap swimmers? There are many factors to consider regarding the cost to keep the pool open longer during the off-season. First, the pool is open during the off-season according to most pool schedules; we open two months earlier and stay open two months longer than any City of Austin pools and most HOA pools. Second, last October we had approximately two swimmers, please keep this in mind when considering the cost ratio per swimmer. The cost to clean the restrooms is approximately $1,000 per month during the off-season months we are currently open (i.e. September). While we do have some maintenance costs during the months that it is closed they are not close to the cost if people are swimming, it would be much more expensive to maintain the water quality at a “swimmable” level as well as the electricity costs to run the pumps much more often. The cost to heat a pool the size of Ella Wooten is several thousand dollars over the winter season and the heater itself will run about $20,000 according to the pool company. While this may be possible in the future, it is not currently in the budget. The pool committee has looked at options to allow a “Master Swimmer” program to swim year-round and pay for the costs to keep it open and heated however with the number of interested people we heard from it was not financially feasible, perhaps in the future this may change, we are certainly open to it but many residents do not want to pay increased dues to allow people to swim in the winter. The “reduced schedule” does not really decrease costs because we still have to clean the restrooms, run the pumps as often and keep a stable chemical level. The POA is certainly willing to look at options but this is not currently in the budget so there would have to be ways to pay for itself. 2. A large group of residents (15+) is currently looking to "group purchase" solar panels from a to-be-determined company. What can be done to expedite the POA/Modification Committee request for this large group of residents? Each owner would still have to apply separately. We are working on “pre-approval guidelines” for solar panels but they will not be finalized and approved for some time. Each owner would apply separately but they could apply at the same time and I would let the committee know the situation and they could all be approved as quickly as possible, however it would still take approximately 2 -3 weeks to review fully and could take up to 60 days. 6 out of 6 requests for solar panels at Mueller have been approved to date. None have been denied. All have been approved with only the condition that the panels do not rise above the roof ridges. I would not anticipate this group having any problem getting a quick approval if they note that they will follow this condition in the application and submit a roof plan with the application. Also, I spoke with Shanda from Texas Solar Power Company and we discussed the application process in detail yesterday.

MNA Steering committee Meeting Minutes - 30 June 2009 Steering Committee Attendees: Timothy Brummett, Rob Clinchard, Grant Fisher, Kerry Fisher, Drew Harris, Betsy Hilton, Kathleen Malcom, and Kim Wine SC members absent: Bobby Gierisch, Dusty Harshman, Ann Jerome, Mike McGovern, and Cliff Spinac (It was later discovered that two of these new members were not receiving e-mails from the listserve and therefore were not notified of the meeting.) Other Attendees: Karen Zabreznik, Jennifer Harvey Agenda: I. Welcome & Introductions II. Financial Report a. Treasurer Dusty Harshman was unable to attend. Grant advised that dues are currently $10/year. Due to a recent change in the bylaws, members can now vote on the same day they pay their dues. Previously there was a 30 day waiting period. The chair, vice-chair and treasurer have signature authority for the MNA bank account. III. New Business a. Jennifer Harvey was present and answered questions, including the following: 1. She doesn’t think they’ll be able to open the pool from 12-1 on July 4th. She may be able to waive the admission fee that day so our Delwood neighbors will be able to swim for free. She is working on ordering a clock for the pool. The swim team instructors should not be propping the gate open with a rock anymore. She’s working on adding a sign with the pool hours near the gate. 2. The POA annual meeting will be in November. 3. Park maintenance costs paid by the POA were discussed, along with POA dues. 4. Possibility of getting Neighborhood Watch signs was discussed. POA is not likely to fund these. They run about $200 per sign. 5. Jennifer reminded the SC that there are several POA work groups. Several need more volunteers. Groups include parking advisory, landscape, pool advisory, technology and resident activities. b. Vision of the SC – discussion about what the MNA vision should be. Grant will summarize ideas to be discussed in more detail in future meetings. c. Schools – Kim Wine updated the SC on the leadership changes at AISD and the need to redouble efforts to make the Mueller case to the new superintendent early in her tenure. In addition, Mueller residents need to work with AISD to improve the middle and high schools that our children will attend. d. POA/Homeowners – Refer to prior discussion with Jennifer. e. Officer Elections – Officer elections will be conducted by e-mail after the steering committee meeting. IV. Upcoming Meetings a. During the prior discussion on education and schools, Kim suggested a focused MNA meeting on these issues where hopefully we could have the new superintendent come listen to our concerns.

Mueller Neighbhorhood Assn Meeting notes
posted by Karen_Zab on August 11th, 2008 11:19 AM
Mueller Neighborhood Association Meeting notes 8/9/2008 Missed notes for first part of meeting as was collecting association dues. Notes: I. Welcome and Introductions - Grant Fisher II. Update on Neighborhood Newsletter - Elizabeth Butman III. Upcoming Town Hall Meeting - Dusty Harshman IV. Follow up to Neighborhood Watch - Grant Fisher New resident to the neighborhood, John Nelson , a retired police officer, gave some tips for protecting yourself and your property. Target Hardening - concept of making your home as secure as possible. Something you can do - go look at the front of your home from the eyes of a burglar - Are your neighbors outside? Is your laptop sitting out in the open through the window or your silver serving set visible? Think about where a burgler will look in your house for valuable items - hiding your jewelry in the master closet is not smart. Think how a burglar would think - They want small easy things to take - guns, laptops, jewelry. Write down serial numbers for everything and take a photo of everything. There's no difference between a CD in a car and a $5 bill to a criminal - make sure nothing is sitting out in your car that a burglar might be able to sell. Personal safety. Be aware that bad things happen everywhere. Think about running and walking in groups or with a partner. If you are interested in more tips there is lots of information available or contact Officer Salisbury and ask him to come to your home Role of MNA is to support and communicate the interests of the community with other groups, the city, etc. MNA is going to submit a letter to RMMA asking that community meeting space be planned for in the master plan. Catellus also needs large community meeting space. Original plan had the elementary school as community meeting space but it won't be built out for 4/5 years at the earliest. Motion proposed by Garreth, seconded by John Guest, to submit a formal request by MNA to RMMA PIAC to add community meeting space to the master plan. All in favor - none opposed - motion passed. Dusty would also like Grant to present to the RMMA that MNA has made contact with RBI, Roma, and Catellus to have a discussion about current open community space. There are some things that need to be addressed and that we would like to communicate but they have not given us the venue to present our concerns. Motion passed, second, and approved to bring Dusty's position to RMMA. There is a landscape committee being formed - not sure what its mission is yet. Janelle Dozier is the liaison between the wildflower center, the Mueller Community and RBI the landscape design company. Elementary School position - MNA need to take an official position on the elementary school and put it on the record with RMMA in the next couple months. AISD did not approve a named elementary school at Mueller on the last bond package. Instead AISD wants to change school boundaries to fill under capacity schools in the area because lots of parents have transferred their children to schools outside their neighborhoods. What was learned in the spring is the numbers issue is used as the excuse for not putting the school at Mueller in the AISD plan. AISD is really a political entity, so with enough human pressure they will budge. We need to energize, show up and make our case well. Per Jim Walker the master developer set aside the 10 acres for a school - it can't be changed without City council approval. Please contact Jessica with Catellus, Jguerra@catellus.com, if you didn't get the recent survey on demographics and are are a resident or contracted homeowner at Mueller. Motion made , seconded and passed to have the MNA go on record to support an elementary school at Mueller. V. Pool - John Guest. Pool update by John Guest, member of Pool Advisory Committee which made suggestions to Alliance on pool operations before the pool opened. Alliance has announced the pool will be closing very soon as AISD goes back into attendance. Last day of normal operations will be August 24th, but will be open Labor Day. How does this affect those of us with resident cards - can we continue to swim? Still to be determined. We need to figure out how to continue to advise and influence the pool operations. If you have a strong opinion about the pool operations - for this summer and the future you need to let Alliance know by contacting Jennifer Harvey at: Jharvey@allianceonline.net One suggestion residents would really like to see the lifeguard staffing start much earlier than the middle of June and extended to the middle of September for future summers. Ben Kramer attended last pool committee meeting. New information - apparently our neighborhood pool is neither a community or city owned pool - it is a hybrid. Pool staffing was a negotiation between Catellus and the city. Alliance was going to take resident desires to have the pool continue to be open to the City - need to find out the city will require we continue to staff lifeguards in order to have resident swim only. In the future when we have two pools we can look at having one pool open for longer. Dusty suggested in the past to Catellus to open pool to surrounding neighborhoods for free for a perioed of time to build community between Mueller and surrounding neighborhoods. He suggests again we do this for the Labor Day weekend. Dusty made a motion to have Grant make an official request to Catellus to open the pool up free of charge to non-residents the labor day weekend , John Guest seconded, and it passed. There was vandalism at the pool this past month. We all need to be vigilant and call 911 if we see anything suspicious in the neighborhood. VI. Open Comments & Suggestions. Community Garden - is it still on the plan? If you want to be included on emails please provide Dusty Harshman your email and you will be added to the MNA distribution list. Be aware that a new MuellerCommunity.com website launching next week - Same place, more features. May take a little while to get used to the new site. Jim Walker mentioned that a discussion will be coming up on charter amendment to stop the city from using economic development incentive packages for projects with a retail compoennt. This is due to some folk's dissatisfaction with the city's agreement with the Domain. Similar deal with Mueller - will use Mueller to drive opposition to the charter amendment. In Jim's mind they are very different. VII. Block Captains are meeting after the official meeting. - Bobby Gierisch Meeting adjourned.
Summary: July MNA meeting, Saturday the 12th

1. Introduction of residents who have not attended previously2. Introduction of Steering Committee and Officers1. Grant Fisher- Chairman2. Drew Harris- Vice Chair3. Dusty Harshman- Treasurer4. Karen Zabreznik- Secretary (not in attendance)5. John Guest6. Jerry Perkins7. Elizabeth Butmann8. Kim Wine9. Kerry Fisher10. Wilson Robertson (not in attendance)11. Bobby Gierisch12. Rod Ruoff (not in attendance)13. Cliff Spinac (not in attendance)3. Officer Salsbury APD- Neighborhood Watch information? Break-ins and thefts have occurred in the neighborhood. Crime has skyrocketed in surrounding neighborhoods. With construction contractors around, it is difficult to tell who should be in the area. ? If you see something occurring, call 911. To report a crime you did not see, call 311. Contact Alliance for things like overgrown lawns, abandoned cars, etc.? Use your alarms, lock doors and gates, but most importantly, keep an eye open for suspicious activity. APD and Catellus patrol the area, but arent enough.? To form Neighborhood Watch, think small groups of 6-9 homes that have good visibility of each other. Exchange home and work phone #s, basic schedules and communicate about vacations or visitors. Look for information to be posted on Muellercommunity.com.4. Dues $10 dues may be paid to Dusty Harshman. Dues money finances the newsletter, events, and Muellercommunity.com. Those who pay dues will be able to vote at MNA meetings. The $10 dues paid now will last through the end of 2009. We anticipate that in the future, advertising in the newsletter may offset the amount of dues. A mock-up of a newsletter was available for an example. In the beginning it will be quarterly, but is anticipated to be a bimonthly in the future. Muellercommunity.com is currently a volunteer effort, but with many new functions to come we need to make it worth the while of the webmaster. An example of an upcoming event is a Neighbors Night Out Barbeque Cook-Off, possibly in the Garden Court, on October 7. See http://www.nno.org/nno/ for more information on the national event. 5. Neighborhood Block CaptainsConcern was expressed that the Steering Committee elections were held without enough prior publicity. Notice was given via Muellercommunity.com and the Yahoo list serve. Block Captains are a no-tech way of keeping neighbors informed of what is going on. They should be letting you know about meetings. Some people dont know who their BC is. Bobby G created the map and signed up more volunteers. If you dont know your representative, ask Bobby or a neighbor. Other neighbors mentioned signage at the entrance of the neighborhood to advertise as well. Muellercommunity.com is really the best way to get information, if you have access to a computer. Residents who have yet to move in can learn from the experience of those who already live here.6. CommitteesThere are several committees forming that need volunteers. Please sign up and be a part of the Events or Welcome Committees. Also, feel free to submit ideas, stories or photos for the Newsletter. Elizabeth B. and Drew H. and Dusty H. are the newsletter committee.7. The Steering Committee wants to know what the MNA can do for you. Ideas submitted at the meeting were: Find out about the replacement or repair of items damaged by construction or storms, such as street lights, street name signs, and curbs. Catellus will be contacted regarding these issues. To be a link between Catellus and the residents To create an online neighborhood directory To plan eventsWe are looking into alternative meeting locales.
Steering Committee Nominees
posted by GP on June 11th, 2008 8:10 AM
For the thirteen steering committee seats on the MNA, we have thirteen nominees! That is great news! As such, at the next meeting (this weekend), we will have a simple paper ballot with all thirteen nominees. As a reference, the nominees are listed below with a (self-provided) description.Thanks,GrantElizabeth ButmanDuring the early stages of the Mueller redevelopment, while Catellus retains majority control of the Property Owners' Association, our Mueller Neighborhood Association is especially crucial to ensure that residents have a forum for discussion and the ability to make our voices heard. As an architectural historian on staff at the TexasHistorical Commission, I am excited by the opportunity to help shape the history of our new development, and I hope that you will consider me for a position on the Steering Committee.Grant FisherMy wife (Ashley) and I moved to Lawless Street about 3 months ago, and have both been active in the neighborhood association since the initial meetings at Genuine Joes. As an active participant in the MNA, I would enjoy serving on the steering committee, representing not only my current neighbors, but also neighbors who have yet to move in.Kerry FisherI'm a UT grad who's lived in Austin for nine years, and I work at UT. I'll be moving to Scales Street in September from my current house in Cherrywood and I'm very excited. I've enjoyed getting involved in the neighborhood by going to the RMMA PIAC meetings for the past year and now the neighborhood meetings, too.Bobby GierischI am a Mueller resident since December, and I have attended the 'neighborhood association' meetings since they were held at Genuine Joe's -- also most of the 'neighborhoods coalition' and Mueller Commission meetings downtown. I am eager to see Mueller develop into a real community, and I am particularly interested in doing all we can to make the POA leadership responsive to the needs and wishes of the resident community.John GuestI am a former health system CEO who now is an association CEO representing (i.e. lobbying for) major teaching hospitals in Texas. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 38 years and have two grown sons, two grandchildren, and a dog named "Jetta". I have served for many years on and for volunteer boards and would like to contribute to the Mueller neighborhood and my Mueller neighbors.Drew HarrisHello, I'm your friendly neighborly lawyer on Lawless Street. I made a career of resolving disputes and coming up with creative solutions to problems, and I hope to be able to use these skills as a member of the Steering Committee.Dusty HarshmanI look forward to ensuring that the Mueller neighborhood is equal to the sum of its parts. Our well-conceived design, our diverse and intelligent residents, our dedicated stakeholders, and our out-of-this-world amenities should equate to a landmark neighborhood. While I believe we'll become a landmark neighborhood, I also hope that there will come a time that Mueller will just be another place in Austin to hang out in all four seasons: Winter, Spri-Summer, Summer, and Fa-Summer. Did I mention how hot its been?Jerry PerkinsI have a lifetime of community service through teaching, research, administration and various other activities, including election to two terms on a POA board (representing 3500 property owners). I would honored to help on the steering committee or in any capacity in which the MNA membership thinks I would useful.Wilson RobertsonI am a husband and father of two small girls, and we will be moving into one of David Weekley's rowhouses as a part of the Affordable Housing Program before November this year. I am a designer and project manager for a local architecture firm and card-carrying New Urbanist. As a member of the MNA Steering Committee, I intend to be a voice for those within the Affordable Housing Program, a voice for those within medium-density dwelling units, and a voice to represent Mueller's role as a participant within the greater Austin area.Rod RuoffI would like to serve on the MNA and play the role of advocate for helping to educate Mueller about "green" issues. There are exciting developments in renewable energies, energy efficiency, energy storage, and related topics, which Mueller could benefit from. A parallel interest is in self-sufficiency, such as related to community-supported agriculture. Cliff SpinacAs a 12 year resident of Austin, after living in New York and Florida, I have come to an understanding about home living in Austin. I would like to be proactive in helping guide the future of our neighborhood to become something we can all be proud of.Kim WineI am Kim Wine, garden court resident, teacher, mom of 2 young boys, wife of Aaron. I helped present Mueller's need for an elementary school to AISD, and plan to continue to keep them informed on the situation. I am admittedly not good at legal mumbo-jumbo, but I feel I have common sense and the ability to see the big picture. My main concerns are making Mueller an open, friendly, safe and family-oriented place to live.Karen ZabreznikAlthough not a Mueller homeowner yet our home is well on its way to being complete in September. I have participated in the Mueller Neighborhood Assn and other Mueller related meetings since the Pioneer process began and we all started signing contracts on homes at Mueller. I am interested in continuing to participate the evolution of our community into a unique and special place to live and our interaction as a community with the surrounding neighborhoods, the POA, city government and other groups with an interest in Mueller.
Mueller Community Association Advisory Panel
posted by langhugh on November 15th, 2007 7:30 AM
http://www.statesman.com/news/content/n ... eller.html (I chose "Click to Listen" for the fun of hearing whether the computer would say "MYEW-ler" or "MIL-ler") With the AAS' treatment today of the Mueller Community Association only lightly-based on Mueller community governance. I wanted to share with the Neighborhood my role on the Mueller Community Association Advisory Panel, and explain how I'm serving Mueller Pioneer Interests on the panel. I am working to facilitate the communication between the Panel and the Mueller neighbors (which I think has been pretty good so far with the Open House and the Online Survey) and provide some broad observations on the process. After we receive the Rules and Regulations from Catellus, I'm certain there will be more opportunities to debate the covenants and lay out pros/cons/alternatives. Below is the beginning of my effort in a memo I provided to the Panel for consideration. I could not preserve the bullet-point organization below, so it may read a little rough, but I hope you can get the gist of it... "
