Pedestrians' right of way?
posted by Sol Acosta-Houston on May 14th, 2014 11:04 AM
I was coming home this morning on Berkman Dr going south, I turned right onto Camacho and felt something hit my car. In my rear view mirror I saw a jogger, who apparently was annoyed at my not giving her the right of way. This in turn, really pissed me off because I thought she was just unwilling to slow down her pace. This has happened a couple of times lately --and every time it has happened at a busy intersection near construction on Berkman. I am a pretty civil driver who understands I have the advantage and should treat pedestrians like the fragile beings they are compared to my very heavy vehicle. I typically practice defensive driving and the only times I don't make a full stop to give the right of way is if I see the car coming behind me not slowing down and I fear I will be rear ended. Berkman has become a dangerous street and this happens quite often, unfortunately. Those of us who live there have seen ALL kinds of dangerous behavior on the road (joggers and walkers on the street, drivers who don't slow down for bikes, bikes who don't use the bike lane, etc.) So, I got to thinking, perhaps I'm in the wrong and I am the one who is misinterpreting the law. I thought in Texas the pedestrian only has the right of way if using a MARKED crosswalk. Otherwise, drivers would have to stop at every corner if a pedestrian is waiting to cross, right? This is all I could find online: "A pedestrian shall yield the right-of-way to a vehicle on the highway if crossing a roadway at a place other than in a marked crosswalk or in an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection;" "the operator of a vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian on a roadway; give warning by sounding the horn when necessary; and exercise proper precaution on observing a child or an obviously confused or incapacitated person on a roadway." http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/TN/htm/TN.552.htm Any experts out there who can help?

Stop sign missing at Camacho & Littlefield

Neighbors - we just noticed that the stop sign and street signs on top at Camacho & Littlefield are completely missing (thanks Joe Denton!). We have reported to Austin 311 which prioritized this as a traffic emergency. They said a crew should be out this afternoon to look at it and it should be fully replaced in 48 hrs. Please take care at the intersection meantime! Melanie

Hi everyone, Great news! This morning as I was pulling out of my garage in upper Camacho Street. I spotted three men and yellow vests. I asked them what they were doing, and they told me that they were from the Google Fiber engineering team. They said were surveying the area to install Google fiber in the Mueller community. They said that completion and installation in Mueller is still about a year and a half out.

Missing signs at Camacho and Zach Scott
posted by kromel on January 7th, 2014 10:33 AM
The street signs at Camacho and Zach Scott have been missing for a very long time. Heck, maybe they’ve never been there; I can’t recall. I reported it to the City of Austin about 6 months ago and nothing happened. I reported it again in October and noticed they have closed my work order. (Apparently, they close work orders when they are aware of the issue, which makes no sense to me. Perhaps another neighbor reported it and mine was a duplicate?) I spoke to a street sign representative today (Carlos) and explained that the signs on both sides of the street are missing on a major thoroughfare in the neighborhood. He said they are backlogged with work orders; however, that seemed to get his attention. He said they should get the signs fabricated and installed next week. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Indecent Exposure Incident on 9/10/13
posted by Belinda Roberts on September 23rd, 2013 1:56 PM
I saw him this morning at 6:05 am. I was running "south" on Camacho next to the park on the park side of the road. The car drove past me and pulled over to the right about four house down. He shut the lights off and turned on the dome light. I immediately recognized the car, crossed the street to be nearer to the houses and called 911. I stopped before running by the car and by the time I was off the phone another woman with a dog was approaching him and he drove off. During the next 30 minutes that I continued my run I saw him four or five more times. I never spotted a patrol car.

posted by langhugh on July 23rd, 2013 12:13 AM
The Mueller Neighborhood Association has convened a Town Center resident working group. We are tasked with bringing a resident’s voice to the design of Mueller’s Town Center or ‘Aldrich Street’. What design entails… • how Aldrich Street makes you ‘feel’, • how it lets you know you’re in Austin • how it interacts with nearby Lake Park and other green spaces, • amenities for group gatherings • amenities for lingering/relaxing for something unexpected • amenities that excite your creative mind If these topics interest you, then come to the kickoff meeting at 4116 Camacho on Sunday, June 28th at 4:00pm. There, we will learn a little bit about Mueller’s history, what makes Aldrich Street so important, and what we plan to do to offer a resident’s voice in design decisions.

I was about to turn on to Zach Scott from Camacho and hesitated because there was a car stopped in the oncoming lane. (I'm going to assume the driver was a Mueller neighbor.) When I saw the reason, I turned and stopped. Together our cars guarded the turtle steadily crossing the street.

Winner of the 2012 Mueller Holiday Block Contest
posted by Drew on January 11th, 2013 11:22 PM
Each year, the Front Porch Flyer newsletter recognizes the Mueller neighborhood block with the most holiday spirit. This is a block competition, not an individual competition, so you need to get with your neighbors to show the rest of Mueller why your block has the most holiday cheer. The winning block has a photo published in the Front Porch Flyer. Prior winning blocks include Lawless, the southern end of Berkman, and Cal Rodgers. For 2012, the winner is Gochman Street! Strong participation from several neighbors, along with whimsical decorations like the Christmas pigs and geese, helped make Gochman a place of grand holiday cheer. Other notably decorated streets include the western end of Antone and "upper Camacho," as well as Garden Court 2. Congrats to the winner, and we look forward to your holiday cheer next year! -The Front Porch Flyer team
Traffic operations: signage and alley traffic flow
posted by lasp4448 on January 11th, 2013 6:37 PM
1) I don't mind signs. My experience is that people ALWAYS need reminders of how to (and how not to) act. Without signs, we forget. 2) Looking at parts of older Austin, there are many alleys NOT marked "one way". However, few of these alleys are true garage alleys - the houses and driveways on the streets, not in the alleys.3) If people are truly very much for or very much against alleys, how about getting a poll? How hard would it be for people to log in and vote - one per house - for one-way or for two-way alleys. I'll start: 4448 Camacho votes one-way alleys.

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 Nominees Statements of Interest Cynthia Cammack. We moved to Mueller during its first year, in August 2008, and live on Zach Scott in the first block of houses off Airport. 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 Colt. Hi, 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 Fisher. I 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’ Malcom. Hello 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 Neider. I’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 Nortey. Hello 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 Parks. July 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 Rector. My 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 Roberts. I 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” Walker. I 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.

Questions from potential Muellerite
posted by Brandon Kraft on July 19th, 2012 9:43 AM
To add more thought:1. Agreed. While this forum can get a bit heated, the private Facebook group and all in-person interaction has been great. As a non-dog owner with little ones, I've never run into a dog issue walking with my very-afraid-of-dogs-despite-my-attempts-otherwise preschooler or anything to that effect (short of some dog poop once or twice on a sidewalk).With little ones swimming, while online I felt very uneasy about swimming with them since online, it seems everyone is against parents, in reality, that's not true at all. We've taken the girls swimming often and never had anything that would make me feel like the online sentiment is in existence. (Then again, we use both a swim diaper and a cover).Frankly, anytime I get frustrated by the community through this site, I tend to not check it for a few days and go on an extra walk. The personal interaction helps me remember the online forum isn't reality.2. I think the economic diversity is pretty invisible. Beyond connecting that someone lives on Camacho just west of Mattie to mean that they probably live in one of the $800-$1M homes or noticing they having a slick stroller, I wouldn't have any idea that their income is likely much higher than mine. Likewise, perhaps I haven't been paying attention, but I have no idea which homes are affordable, so never have many any connections there.In short, it's been great for us and never felt the economic diversity.3. As Jen mentioned, Lake Park sees a lot of non-Mueller action and to a lesser extent the outer trails. I think in terms of neighborhood action (our neighborhood association, the Windsor Park NA, Cherrywood, etc) seem to work with each other more when dealing with the city regarding proposed park changes, 51st Street issues, etc.In short, on a personal basis, I don't know that's there much (then again, when living in South River City, I didn't venture across Oltorf to the St. Edwards neighborhood either). On an organizational level, I believe there's a lot.We bought a resell in 2010 and have been happy!Cheers,Brandon
Zach Scott Speeding Mitigation Petition Questions: Answers
posted by Ross Houston on July 16th, 2012 8:13 AM
I'm not sure why you think taking Camacho doesn't make sense for these people. I come in at Airport and Zach Scott and I turn left on Camacho and take it all the way around to Berkman. There's less traffic there, and it also puts me on the correct side of the one-way alley I have to turn in. And Simond is so narrow and still takes me past of bunch of new construction.But your point is right on that just like toll roads, speed bumps are going to cause a lot of people to find new routes that might be hard to foresee.
Zach Scott Speeding Mitigation Petition Questions: Answers
posted by Rahm McDaniel on July 15th, 2012 8:47 AM
I'm also concerned about the impact of speed humps or tables to both our cars (from wear and tear) and to nearby streets.For example, I live on McCloskey between Berkman and Ella Wooten Park. Here in Mueller our primary traffic calming tool on residential streets is parked cars, which narrows the path and encourages drivers to slow down. When people East on McCloskey, they frequently drive slowly between Tom Miller and Mattie, but speed up substantially as they pass the area between the park and the Mattie wide median (where no cars are parked), and continue at high speed to Berkman. Along our one block at this end, there are 8 young children, not to mention all the kids that cross to the pool and park from Mattie where the cars pick up speed. Sadly, most of these folks are Mueller Residents who frankly should know better and I've told a few that. But I'm fairly sure that if people are using McCloskey as an alternative to Zach Scott already, they'll only do it more often if Zach Scott gets speed humps.At any rate, my preferred solution would be stop signs at both McCloskey and Mattie, along with stop signs at Zach Scott at the other end of the wide median.

There is a need to consider nearby streets when considering speed control. Upper Camacho is experiencing an increase in traffic - speeders. They are coming in from Zach Scott and Simond/Mattie heading to Berkman and from Berkman to Mattie/Zach Scott. Not sure what they're trying to avoid but upper Camacho is out of their way. Two weeks ago APD issued 12 tickets to speeders but they can't be there all the time.

Garage Theft
posted by lee on May 9th, 2012 3:00 PM
My husband and I made the mistake of leaving our garage open this morning while getting ready for work. During this time (between 6:45 and 7:30) someone stole an expensive bicycle, some music equipment, and went through my car and got my garage door opener. We've since locked the garage manually and turned off the automatic garage opener. It's our own fault for giving thieves the opportunity, but we filed a police report and wanted to see if anyone saw anything strange. It is the alley for Threadgill Street houses between Camacho and Zach Scott. Thanks for any info!
