The Land of Abandoned Toys
posted by Shane on June 30th, 2014 8:05 PM
Howdy all - while we love all of the use the Garden Court gets, let's be sure to pick up after our kids. Consider it a teaching opportunity and a chance to keep all spaces - from our homes to our neighborhood - clean. If you've left something at the GC1, please stop by soon and retrieve it. Items abandoned in the GC will be placed for the next bulk pick-up, so we're not tripping over items or creating obstacles for the lawn care crew. Thanks!

A couple just stopped by noting that they located their iPhone at my address. If you get this line too, consider it suspicious. In the Garden Court 1 area at current.
Update From Landscape Committee Nov 2013
posted by kim wine on November 8th, 2013 7:56 PM
I agree with Doug. They hacked the Garden Court trees during the oak wilt danger period and didn't come back and seal the cuts until a week later. They don't do the mulch correctly, etc.
Update From Landscape Committee Nov 2013
posted by dhs on November 8th, 2013 6:21 PM
That's not quite accurate. What the POA is considering is taking over the maintenance of our street trees, and charging us for it. But we would still own the trees and be responsible for replacing them if the maintenance was poorly done. And I"ve seen enough dead POA trees to believe that this is a bad deal.And keep in mind that one major reason we have so many sickly trees is because the POA didn't establish or enforce good planting standards to begin with. One of the presenters at earlier tree workshops at Mueller inspected several of the trees here and said they were poor quality trees ithat were mproperly planted - below grade, without soil remediation and with root-bound balls. The bubblers that were generally installed worsened this by encouraging shallow root growth.I think that perhaps the POA could offer this as an optional service, but those of us who care for our trees and the value and shade they will provide if properly cared for should be able to continue to do our own maintenance.Doug
Update From Landscape Committee Nov 2013
posted by ret1ree00 on November 8th, 2013 9:49 AM
First I want to thank everyone that participated in the recent survey regarding our POA Budget. The POA Board is considering our responses and will use this to make decisions regarding expenditures. I wanted to carry forward some of our landscape discussions this week. 1. Tree Workshop with Tim Brosnan, Arborist. We had 37 residents sign in and probably a few more that did not. The responses I have received have been that this was very helpful. Our notes will be published here and hopefully we will have additional summaries in the Front Porch Flyer and POA Newsletter. The POA board is considering the survey responses regarding the POA taking on pruning of the street trees in the 2014 Budget. 2. The POA will be replacing trees throughout the parks over the winter and along some trees. The die off has not been as severe this year in the parks and some trees to be replaced are still under warranty. 3. Efforts by the Friends of the Prairie (FOP) . Weed marking and removal continues. You may notice an number of sites where Johnson Grass has been sprayed and the FOP group has made target areas where perennial Ragweed was pulled. 4. The Habitat Challenge for 2013 is nearing it's end. We have had at least 10 residences certified as wildlife habitat this year. 5. The landscape company has been able to take care of a few trouble spots, most notably by the Hanger along the trail. Watering periods were reduced and some sprinkler heads moved. 6. The trails, as everyone probably knows, were heavily damaged by the recent rains and will be needing repair soon. 7. Budget Considerations for 2014. (a) POA Board is considering taking on pruning of all street trees. They already do this for the Row home and Garden Courts. (b) POA board is considering shade structures for the playscapes. They are looking at alternatives that would less costly and still meet both the need and safety and code issues. (c) The POA board is authorizing additional trash cans for the parks. Additional Trash cans will be placed in Lake Park and perhaps other key areas. I wanted to mention also there has been recent damage to our parks from someone driving into the parks and in the case of Lake Park cutting donuts in the basin. We spend a considerable amount of time and money cleaning up the paint and in this case repairing the grass. If you ever see vandalism please contact the police immediately. Call 911. Thanks Joe
Garden Court/GC I vehicle burglary from carport
posted by carablossom on November 3rd, 2013 5:40 PM
Just fyi, our SUV parked in our carport was stealthily burglarized last night after we returned from a quick out-of-town day trip. We figure that we may have accidentally left the car unlocked after getting the kiddos into bed, so at least there wasn't car damage -- Ours is the alley right next to Zach Scott, and my husband remembers seeing a red, old Jeep Cherokee cruising slowly really late in the night recently through the alley. Pair this with the Simond Ave carport burglary earlier reported today, and just be extra mindful. And we've also filed a police report -- has anyone had any luck with the police response after filing a report? I generally hate to be a "nuisance," but my previous experience in filing 2 reports with the APD leaves me less than confident that anything will actually happen unless I get actively involved, and I'm not too sure how to go about that. Don't get me wrong, I heart the APD, and as a former city prosecutor, 98% of the officers I've dealt with and whose work I've had the opportunity to observe are fantastic, we are darn lucky to have them. But man, being on the other end of crime and post-reporting hasn't lived up to the expectations set up by my previous work.

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
what are the Residential Modification Guidelines?
posted by dhs on January 9th, 2013 5:15 PM
The relevant section from the modification regulations is:"Each lot is limited by ordinance to a maximum percentage ofimpervious cover. Improvements on Yard Homes and Garden CourtHouse lots shall not exceed the maximum 75% impervious cover.Row and Shop House lots shall not exceed a maximum imperviouscover of 95%."The wording of the first section is a bit ambiguous, but I believe that it says that the impervious cover on your lot (house, garage, sidewalk, ...) cannot exceed 75% for yard homes and 95% for row homes.So using me as an example:** my house/porch is 46x30** my garage/driveway/breezeway is 27x22** my sidewalk is 4x37So the total of impervious cover as constructed is ~2100 sq ft. My lot is 90x37 or 3330 sq ft, so I currently have about 63% impervious cover. 75% impervious cover would be ~2500 sq ft, so I can add about 400 sq ft of impervious cover and stay within the rules.You only need to have your changes reviewed if they are publicly visible.Doug
what are the Residential Modification Guidelines?
posted by lilyrose on January 9th, 2013 7:26 AM
if you have an account at http://www.muelleraustinonline.com - wait, actually, you don't even need an account - I was going to say the modification guidelines were in an overall documents section somewhere, but it looks like the main page has a link to the modifications process on the lefthand menu, and that section includes a link directly to the modifications guidelines. as for impervious cover, however, if you don't see it in the modifications guidelines, I *think* that impervious cover requirements for different lot types are in the Mueller Design Book, which (without looking for exactly where) should be available at http://www.muelleraustin.com. I believe it does vary depending on garden court home, yard home, row home, etc. (but is specific to Mueller lots, not standard city impervious cover).I think that whether or not a wooden deck counts as pervious *is* according the city code, however, and I don't know for sure without looking. although I think it is probably one of those materials that gets partial credit, so to speak, maybe considered something like 50% impervious cover.Jennifer Harvey/Alliance can probably help with some or all of that.
Cars broken into-
posted by caren zysk on December 27th, 2012 3:09 PM
Wanted all to be aware that I work as on call nurse coming and going at all hrs sometimes. Last night I arrived home and let my dogs out. As I brought them back in a young man entered the Garden Court and walked with intent the sidewalk in front of my house. He stood in front of me looking. I asked if he needed something and he replied no and just stood. I shut my door quickly and called APD. I have been many places in this town at wee hrs but never felt as threatened as I did last night. I mad two calls to APD and my son made one. The police found the man. APD told me he was intoxicated and was house sitting for his parents. He had keys to their house and they took him home. Just thought neighborhood should be aware. My son watched this guy go up the alley and into fences in backyards. APD seemed I waved. I felt very frightened. I have done overnight home patient visits for years including allies in east Austin. I am not easily frightened. I was very frightened last night.
Traffic operations: signage and alley traffic flow
posted by Ms Ice Monkey on December 5th, 2012 9:11 AM
We're on a straight-shot alley with no T and would definitely like two-way flow, though I understand the reservations of those along more complex alleys. The no parking signs are useful in some places but a bit of a no brainer in others. They seem unnecessary in the alleys, for instance, but may be helpful at the bump outs. I've seen people parked along the bump out by the Garden Court 1, even with the signage.

Let's celebrate Democracy
posted by aaron on October 29th, 2012 8:51 PM
Four score and seven years ago was 1925 and I wasn't born yet and Lincoln's speech wasn't about anything to do with the general election of a presidential candidate, but that doesn't mean we can't as a neighborhood of red and blue get together Tuesday, November 6th and celebrate democracy, apple pie and just neighborly love. Yes, that's right, its time for our second election party in the Garden Court 1 as we watch the returns on the big screen and have food and drink. Bring a chair, a beverage, or a bite to eat. Bring a few extra to share with your neighbors and celebrate this glorious time in our lives where companies and super pacs can be heard in two distinct voices as we narrow down the list of candidates to one supreme ruler. Bonus points for anyone who dresses up patriotic. Or as Jason Patric. Or as a patriotic Jason Patric. It doesn't even matter if you dress up at all. If you are new to the hood, please do show up. Garden Court 1 is between Scales and Camacho. Just look for the 10 foot HD tv screen. Unlike the rest of America, this is a bi-partisan effort. Republicans, Democrats, Independents and Whigs are all invited in civil rest.

Windows
posted by dhs on October 25th, 2012 10:50 PM
I'm in the process of replacing my windows and can tell you what I've learned. Most of the window glass is made by either Cardinal or PPG, and so windows are distinguished mostly by the framing material - usually wood, fiberglass, aluminum or vinyl - and the quality of manufacture. And a given window can use 2 or three panes of glass, tempered glass, laminated glass, and tinted or obscured glass.The choice of framing materials and manufacturer, as well as the choice of glass, determines the quality of the window in terms of reliability, thermal and acoustic transfer, and light wave transmission.In *general*:aluminum and fiberglass have better structural/reliability properties than wood or vinyl;wood windows require more maintenance;wood costs more than fiberglass which costs more than aluminum or vinyl;aluminum allows thinner frames than fiberglass which allows thinner frames than wood or vinyl - this may or may not be better looking;wood and vinyl and fiberglass have better thermal properties than aluminum, although aluminum windows can be improved with a thermal break (a coupling material that doesn't transfer heat);tinted or obscured glass can limit heat wave transmission but with some degree of visible light filtering as well;wood and vinyl have the best acoustic properties, but most of the sound transmission characteristics of the window depend on the glass used; sound filtering is better with more panes, thicker panes, panes with different thicknesses, laminated panes, tempered panes, and more air space.As to why a Mueller resident would replace windows, I can also speak to that. I'm really not sure what kind of window requirements that Catellus had for the first or second phase, but they weren't very good. I think they required tinting, and maybe gas-filled windows. But in this climate, thermal transfer is much more important than heat wave transfer, and neither tinting nor argon helps much there. If Catellus was going to mandate aluminum windows, they should have required a thermal break. I think that Standard Pacific and Streetman did have this kind of window, and probably the garden court homes do too, but the windows used on my Weekley home are fairly cheap, and do a poor job at limiting both thermal and acoustic transmission.Doug

I'm wondering why a Mueller resident is replacing windows - even crappy aluminum windows from the 60's usually lasted at least 30 years. I don't have any personal experience with vinyl windows, but the price and thermal properties are good. I'd probably be wary of placing them on a southern or western exposure where they got a lot of direct sunlight and UV exposure. I believe vinyl was used in the first phase of Mueller yard & garden courts homes, but some concern by the fire department's inspectors led that practice to be discontinued in later phases. I've done a few window replacements in rental units around town, but to match windows I wasn't replacing, I used aluminum, and have been very happy with the new windows, done by Advanced Exteriors.

We need your help to send AISD a message!
posted by mrs aaron on September 24th, 2012 9:11 PM
Alrighty everyone! I have been slacking on my nagging job, but we really need those handwritten letters to the Trustees of the AISD School Board. I had hoped to turn them in tonight, but we don't have the quantity needed to make an impression. Please take 5 minutes to write your letter and another 5 minutes to drop it off at 4116 Scales, the red house in the Garden Court between Scales and Camacho and McCloskey and Zach Scott. The letter's salutation should be to the Trustees. See below for further guidance. If you know me, you know I will keep badgering you to do this. [:wink:]The Mueller neighborhood hopes to send a simple message to the Austin Independent School District. The message: “Mueller families proudly attend AISD schools in large numbers.” AISD seems confused. At a recent meeting regarding Austin’s next school-building bond, an AISD staffer suggested that Mueller’s students were all attending private school. This statement was generally regarded as fact, and several heads around the room nodded in agreement. There is a major misconception that our neighborhood is detached from our neighborhood public schools. This could not be further from the truth. The civic nature of our parents extends deeply into AISD schools, and we hope a letter-writing campaign restores this truth.Our hope is that you would hand-write a short letter telling your family’s story. After signing your letter, simply return it to Kim Wine’s porch at 4116 Scales (red house in the Garden Court near the corner of Littlefield and Camacho). We’ll take care of making copies and hand-delivering them to AISD’s central office and the Board of Trustees. Here are a few ideas that you may wish to include in your letter.• Please consider telling your personal story on why you are proud to send your children to an AISD school.• According to a recent poll of parents in Mueller, 78% of school-aged children are attending AISD public schools, 9% are attending charter schools, 9% are attending private schools, and 4% are homeschooling. AISD schools attended include Maplewood Elementary, Ridgetop Elementary, Lee Elementary Kealing Middle School, Fulmore Middle School, McCallum High School, and LASA. Future phases of our neighborhood will track to Blanton Elementary, Pearce Middle School, and Reagan High School.• Mueller parents participate heavily in AISD Campus Advisory Councils and hold several leadership positions in local Parent Teacher Associations. • Mueller parents have been deeply involved in volunteerism within AISD schools. This includes: o Serving as mentors and classroom coaches in many east Austin AISD schools with Austin Partners in Education, Communities in Schools, and the Seedling Foundationo Starting a food pantry at Maplewood Elementary o Tending to school gardens at Maplewood and Ridgetopo Writing grant applications that earned AISD significant statewide recognition.• Mueller neighbors rallied around Maplewood Elementary to earn $5,000 from Kleenex and $500 from Target in high-profile national Facebook contests. In both cases, Maplewood was the highest ranked school in Austin. Thanks again for telling your story,Kim Wine and Dusty Harshman

London Olympic Opening Ceremonies.
posted by aaron on July 12th, 2012 10:48 PM
So roughly four years ago, I showed the opening ceremonies on the outdoor screen in GC1. I figure its a tradition now that leap year enthusiasts can love. Friday July 27th at dark, I'll show the Tivo'ed opening ceremonies. If I knew how to make fish and chips I would make some, but I'll probably just grill some hotdogs and sausages and call them bangers. If you want to show up and bring something, please do. We can even paint numbers on the kids and make them race around the GC while we gamble on them. Anyhow, I'm not gong to put too much thought into it, but we as a community should hang out and be Americans for a night. PS. If you are not an American, you are most welcome as well. The actual games do not start this night so we all can be friendly until the lawn bowling starts. Then its going to be like the revolutionary war all over. PPS. For our new neighbors, GC1 is the garden court between Scales and Camacho, just look for the big screen and the people milling about.

Superbowl party
posted by aaron on January 25th, 2012 12:55 PM
As always, I'll be cooking up a bunch of sausages and hot dogs and showing the Superbowl on the outdoor movie screen in the GC1 (garden court 1 between Scales and Camacho). You should show up and watch either the game, the commercials or just laugh at the entire spectacle. If you want, you can bring a chair, beverage or a side. In fact, you can bring nothing but just show up and you'll still have a great time. See you Sunday Feb 5th around 5ish. At this point you can think how awesome it will be to watch the game with a lot of folks and just walk home when you want. Yea Mueller!
THREADGILL ST between Zach Scott and Camacho - road repairs
posted by danx111 on November 12th, 2011 10:23 AM
Upcoming Road Repairs – In an effort to support public works, we want you to know that City of Austin's Street & Bridge Division road repairs were delayed last week but they will start replacing 130’ of curb between Zach Scott and Camacho on MONDAY. Unfortunately we only have this general location at this time. If your property (or sideyard as a corner lot) fronts Threadgill between Zach Scott and Camacho (generally near and across from Garden Court 2) please turn off your irrigation on Sunday night. If at all possible, please lock up any dogs and leave fences unlocked so that City repair people can access your backyard in case of emergency. We will alert you as work progresses. Additional road repairs will follow and we will share those dates as soon as possible. Please pass along to neighbors who may not have seen POA notice

cats in gardens
posted by C Williams on September 12th, 2011 12:03 PM
I don't understand the disconnect here. How is letting your cat poop in someones yard different from letting a dog? Cat poop can be hazardous (http://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/pregnant.htm). This is not *just* a courtesy thing (but why isn't that enough?). My dogs are not large yet I always pick up after them and don't let them roam the neighborhood. It just seems the neighborly thing to do.

Mail Theft
posted by mbe19 on September 10th, 2011 9:40 AM
Thanks for letting us know. This explains why I did not receive a check from a client. Sheesh. I have had more back luck with the Post Office delivery to the Garden Court boxes. Don't expect much for theft complaint. I did that this morning and all it was just a form that will then go to our local PO for follow-up!! The place that caused the problem!
School Supply Donation Drive
posted by kim wine on August 9th, 2011 3:51 PM
It is that time of year...back to school! And it is time to donate some school supplies to the nearby schools. This year, Maplewood is asking for pencil boxes and backpacks. I know HEB has some cool pencil boxes made of recycled materials. Backpacks with no cartoon or movie characters would be most appropriate. We also have a tradition of donating to Pearce Middle School. As soon as they call me back, I will post their wish-list. Please drop off these items, or $$ to go towards these items, to 4116 Scales Street (red house in Garden Court 1, between Zach Scott and McCloskey and Scales and Camacho). I will collect until Friday, August 19. PM me if you have questions. Thanks!!

Garden Home Nomenclature opinion: Let's decide this Saturday!
posted by Millie Hayes on June 22nd, 2011 11:53 AM
As a new resident of the GC3/GH1, I am also wondering what we should be called! I've been hearing feedback from a few folks that we should be GC3, but we aren't a court. I'm liking the GH1 option. I'm thinking that the homes that are being built now, just south of GH1, would then be called GH2?Either way... The GC3/GH1 residents are planning an informal get-together this Saturday evening, June 25, at about 7:30. Current and future garden home residents, as well as our new neighbors, are welcome. We're asking that you bring a snack/appetizer/dish to share and provide your own beverages. (We'll have some on hand, but not enough if the whole neighborhood shows up!) We would love to see you there!
Short-term rental (room or garage apartment)?

Hello, I live in garden court 2 and have an extra bedroom and bathroom. The room has a bed and night stand but that's it...the rest of the house is fully furnished. My previous roommate paid $650. Let me know if you're interested.Catherine512-633-3055
Garden Home Nomenclature opinion: GC3 , GC4 or GH1 or something else?
posted by Katherine V. on June 18th, 2011 9:43 AM
How about GH1 starting on Antone, then going back toward Tom Miller? They are really Garden Homes, as opposed to Courts, so I think it makes sense.
Garden Home Nomenclature opinion: GC3 , GC4 or GH1 or something else?
posted by GarrethWilcock on June 16th, 2011 12:33 PM
So if the first garden court is GC1 and the second GC2, what are the two green spaces between the new David Weekley Garden Homes going to be called? GC3 and GC4? And how does this make the folks in the new Garden Homes facing Antone and Tom Miller feel? Disenfranchised? Un courted? Should all 6 rows of homes be GH1? The only reason this sprang to mind was that I did a little lemonade stand thing and ended up calling the location GC3, and didn't know how anyone else felt. cheers Garreth
