My new small biz: Mueller Highlife - Home & Yard
posted by Greg Petersen on April 17th, 2014 10:54 PM
Hi Everyone! I just wanted to check in an provide some clarification regarding the new Spring "Get Organized" Promotion we are currently running. Several people have been unclear how it works, so here are the full details: if a customer purchases any custom closet or garage solution, they receive a $250 Highlife Gift Certificate. This credit can be applied to any incremental purchase. Also, if you buy multiple closet or garage solutions, you earn a $250 for each one, so in theory you could purchase a master closet, a guest closet and the garage storage solution - and receive $750 in credit. The Highlife Gift Certificate is also transferable. The only restriction is the credit(s) need to be redeemed by 12/31/2014.One other quick item: there have been a few question regarding the Evergreen Trellis featured in the new video on the website. Folks have asked "Is that as high as the vines will grow" and "how long do the vines take to fill in?" So to clarify, that Evergreen Trellis installation we literally just completed the day before the video was shot - so the vines have some filling in to do. However, it's been 3 weeks since the video was shot an they are already climbing the wall and filling in nicely. They will continue to fill in all the way to the top, providing year round beauty and privacy. Not complete privacy, but enough to make your yard feel like it's more your own private space without completely blocking out neighbors and onlookers from the street. In fact, Carol (the owner of the yard where the video was filmed, 4133 Gochman St) has graciously volunteered to allow folks to take a peek inside her yard see how the vines are growing in. She just asks that you don't knock on her door - rather just peek inside from either gate at each end of the yard. We also installed the Patio/Gazebo Lights and put in a Twilight (purple) crepe myrtle. Thanks Everyone! We hope to earn your business soon.GregMueller Highlife - Home & Yardwww.InspiredUrbanLiving.com
Stolen goods landing in my yard

I live on Gochman; my neighbor streets are Mattie, McCloskey and Zach Scott. Upon returning from being OOT, I found a new, plastic wrapped object, with tags, in my back yard (on the alley). If it is yours, please describe it and give me a number or e-mail to contact. Hope to find the owner!
Thank you, neighbors!

A great big thank you to all the Gochman neighbors for helping with the hit and run last week! Quick thinking caught the license number and the culprit was .... the poor little paper girl. She came back later that morning (with mother in tow) crying. She just freaked out, got scared and ran. She was really sorry, as it should be, and I think she has some "coverage issues", but we are still working on it. So, the car is still a mess, and still in the street. Something should be done about that this next week, so sorry about the mess. Anyway, thanks so much and we'll get this cleaned up as quickly as we can!

No way! This is going to just fuel my husband's light buying fire. But my father (who does most, if not all of the installation at our house) will feel vindicated. Seriously though, Gochman Street really got on it this year to get their lights up early. It was awesome. I love my neighbors.
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

THIS IS A RE-POSTING OF THE ONE ABOVE, WITH TWO CHANGES. FIRST, THERE ARE NOW JUST 13 CANDIDATES FOR THE 13 POSITIONS; AND SECOND, I'VE ATTEMPTED TO REFORMAT SO THAT EACH CANDIDATE'S STATEMENT IS SEPARATED FROM THE OTHERS, MAKING IT EASIER TO READ ... sometimes our formatting dreams don't pan out, so here's hoping Mueller Neighborhood AssociationSteering Committee ElectionThere are 13 positions on the Steering Committee of the Mueller Neighborhood Association. Members are elected for one-year terms and may be re-elected, but they may serve no more than three consecutive terms. The election will take place at the MNA monthly meeting at 10am on January 26 in Room 108 of the SEDL Building at 4700 Mueller Boulevard.You must be a resident and MNA member in good standing to serve on the steering committee.You must also be a resident and MNA member for at least two weeks prior to the election (by January 12) in order to vote.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Water Leak?
posted by Jeanne Rush on June 18th, 2012 7:06 AM
I walk through the neighborhood early every morning, around 6 am. Every day I notice water running down the entire length of the alley between Gochman and Mattie. It runs into the street on McCloskey. I see this runoff every morning and suspect one of the houses must have some sort of plumbing leak. With water being so precious in Austin, I hate to see such a waste of water day after day.

The car belongs to a guy named Dave. Like mentioned above, he's a SUPER nice guy. He also happens to be a car enthusiast who likes to work on cars. He's currently renting a room from me while his Mueller Condo is being built. He moves it around because the folks on Gochman weren't too fond of having it AND his Jaguar parked on the street. I'll let him know there's a to-do. I'll also let him know that the folks on Lawless, in fact, DO NOT need another person parking on the street, especially not a land yacht. [:wink:]

    2010 Mueller Holiday Spirit Block Contest
    posted by Drew on December 8th, 2010 12:09 AM
    It’s that time again! 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 get with your neighbors to show the rest of Mueller why your block has the most holiday cheer. The winning block will have a photo published in the Front Porch Flyer. Last year Lawless Street won and raised the bar with its lit arches over the sidewalk. This year Lawless has decked out its street again, and Gochman Street and both Garden Courts are showing their festive holiday spirit. Feel free to nominate/brag about your street in this thread. Front Porch Flyer editors will be deciding the winner in the week before Christmas.

    Jennifer, thanks! I'd posted a link to the Statesman obituary a couple of days ago, but this adds even more depth. On reading these, it seems like the street could equally as well been named for Arthur as for his father Max.Do you have any idea what the charities were that Max got an Austin Mayor's Philanthropy Award for donating to? Because I've had an idea percolating for a while, as some other Gochman residents know ... Joann Zimmerman
    For Gochman Street: In memory of Arthur Gochman
    posted by jen-eric on October 29th, 2010 9:54 PM
    Though we're on Threadgill, I wanted to share a short tribute for those who live on Gochman to know more about the Gochman family. Arthur Gochman passed away on Monday and his legacy is more than sporting goods. Arthur was a dear friend of my grandmother's and used to pick me up from dance classes on Saturdays as a kid. He always took me to whole foods for apple juice and a bran muffin and together he and my grandmother talked politics while I listened. Even though I was just a kid, he always asked my opinions onthe political problems of the day. After my grandmother passed away and I was old enough to recognize his wisdom, he still allowed me to join him for the occasional breakfast of political strategy, even when my position and work differed from his on one or another issues. This Houston Chronicle article tells of his admirable work and life. Thanks Arthur for the bran muffins and legislative training, both have served me well. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/7265586.html Jennifer Carr Allmon

    Next Phase of Mueller
    posted by Mike Hammonds on July 13th, 2010 9:36 PM
    The next Phase will be Standard Pacific over behind Gochman as they are building 58-60 homes total.. These will be large ESTATE HOMES with 6 units in each home. Very cool and the construction should start in Mid August as that's what I was told last week. David Weekly will also strart building later this year. There are two great homes near completion on my street which are Standard Pacific Homes on Gochman. Mike Hammonds Realtor, Moreland Properties
    Trash Blowing from Builders Site
    posted by Jesus Espinoza on May 23rd, 2010 7:11 PM
    I enjoy keeping my yard neat and tidy just like the rest of my Compadres from The Estates at Upper Camacho. Lately though, my yard has been bombarded by a constant barrage of builder's trash blowing from a few Standard Pacific building sites on Gochman street. Trash ranges from cups and plastic bags, to large paper and plastic wrappers of building materials. I don't feel we should be subjected to this type of littering violation. Standard Pacific needs to control their rubbish. Jesse 4420 Camacho Street
    Trees losing leaves
    posted by jzimm on December 2nd, 2009 2:02 PM
    It's fall. Trees lose their leaves in the fall. If they don't, they either do so, messily, all year round (like live oaks), or are labeled "evergreen", in which case they tend to lose their needles, even more messily, just not all in winter.I think that just about all the street trees in Mueller are *supposed* to lose their leaves. Nothing but live oaks or pine trees, up and down all the streets in Mueller, would be infinitely boring.The trees on my street (Gochman) appear to be Schumard oaks, according to the nursery tag on a similar tree on another street. I love the way they're turning colors in the fall: glorious reds and russets, even a hint here and there of orange and yellow. Online sources tell me that they'll grow to up to 100 feet in height and live for centuries. You really want us all to miss out on the fall show, or on an otherwise great tree, just because it behaves like ... a tree?
    Wednesday: On-Street Parking Town Hall
    posted by langhugh on November 10th, 2009 4:20 PM
    Yes, I believe the 1.5 car per household metric factors in all legal parking (so it does not include "T" intersections, parking near alleys, stop signs, crosswalks, fire hydrants, etc.). Many of these illegal areas are marked. Some are unmarked but equally illegal per TTC, City of Austin.
    Wednesday: On-Street Parking Town Hall
    posted by Kathleen Malcom on November 7th, 2009 11:06 AM
    I keep hearing about the 1.5 per household rule, which leads me to a question. On upper Camacho (and other streets) we have two "T" intersections where Gochman & Threadgill dead end into Camacho. At each "T" intersection the three houses on Camacho in front of The "T" have "no parking" signs in front of their homes. That’s a total of six lost spaces. So are the houses in these situations SOL on their allotted 1.5 spaces or are they built into the referred to equation? I actually live alone and park in the garage, yet all my neighbors cars are crammed along the street while I have a free zone at my front door. I assume these are "no parking" zones for safety issues, but who deemed them 'no parking", and based on what? It does mean that residents and guests for these six mentioned homes must fold into the limited spaces in front of their neighbors home. Also, some will remember that back in 2007 when Mueller first laid it's streets and alley's they also put up all the “no parking” and “do not enter” alley signs. There were no houses or trees to block the view of the signs and it looked like a sea of signs in the middle of now where to direct no one. It was quite comical looking and we had a long parking discussion on the Mueller yahoo blog back then about the same foreseen problems that we are discussing today. Thank you Parking Committee for volunteering to tackling this issue.
    Block Captain Group Created on MC.com
    posted by Kathleen Malcom on September 7th, 2009 10:32 AM
    The Mueller Neighborhood Association (MNA) Block Captain's facilitate networking and communication throughout the Mueller Community. Each Captain represents their street in local matters to the MNA Steering Committee. The goal is for the Captain's to be a channel of communication that flows upward and downward on issues that concern the best interest/benefit of Mueller. Block Captain's will also help facilitate neighborhood events for their street such as the annual Neighborhood Night Out in Oct. and an Alley/Street party in June, as well as any impromptu events. This is a volunteer position that enhances the quality of life in Mueller. Please assist your BC by providing your contact info to them. We still are in need of a BC for Gochman and the Garden Court #2. Some longer streets like Zach Scott, may require more than one BC. Thanks! Please contact Kat Malcom at 750-5414 or Ann Jerome at 305-3748 for info.

    Muellerites; We are very fortunate to have a dynamic group that has volunteered to be your Mueller Block Captains! Their role will be to share communication from you to the Steering Comittee and vice versa. They will also be facilitating the Neighborhhood Night Out for your street on Tuesday, 10-6-09 at 6:00PM. Therefore, they will be be reaching out to the Neighbors on thier assigned street to collect your contact info. This information will be kept confidential and used for topics that only relate to Mueller. Once this is collected the residents may use this to communicate with the neighbors on their street. This is NOT a neighborhood directory! We still need a Block Captain for the following streets: Mendez, Hermalinda, Sahm, Threadgill, Gochman and Garden Court #2. If you would like to volunteer please contact me for more details; kathleen_malcom@dell.com Once every street is represented I will be sending out a list of assigned Captains. Thank you!

    The McCloskey/Garden Court I alley has experienced the same problems the past two weeks. I wonder if this will be an ongoing ordeal as the trash collectors shuffle the schedule to pick up on new streets as homes are completed.
    I Want to Mow Your Lawn!
    posted by AnotherPiperDown on June 1st, 2009 9:05 AM
    I'm a soon to be Mueller Resident (shout out to Gochman Street!), a local firefighter, and recently my wife and I found out we are going to be first time parents. I'd like to offer my services for lawn maintenance to 10 Mueller homeowners for a price of $40/month for a twice monthly mow, edge, and blowing of yard trimmings. For particularly small yards I may adjust the price down or for particularly large yards (of which I haven't seen many) the price may be a little higher. I'm hoping to pad our savings account for any unexpected expenditures related to the move, new house, or new kiddo of which I'm sure there won't be too many (heavy sarcasm) and in return offer professional level lawn maintenance with personal service. If you are interested, please feel free to PM or call me at 541-968-3161 if you have any questions or would like to setup service. Loren May 541-968-3161 4117 Gochman

    Update: I did call the Statesman, who gave me a disconnected number to call. I checked back with them the next day about the number, and was told that we were already scheduled for delivery starting the next day (not that we ever heard back from the NYT itself as far as I know). It's been getting delivered ever since, so I think we can all assume that Gochman is officially entered on the roll of streets acceptable to the Gray Lady. Now all I have to do is persuade them not to throw both papers into the wettest spot on the front lawn. :-)

    posted by jzimm on April 30th, 2009 1:27 PM
    NYT just told us we're not in their delivery area. Most of the old posts seem to deal with problems transferring a subscription. We're a "new" subscription (let old one lapse, re-signed under spouse's name) in Phase II, and therefore don't appear on the maps. So who should I be calling first, NYT, or American-Statesman, who doesn't seem (yet) to have any problem with a susbscription to their own paper? (We put in a request or two several months back to get Gochman into Google Maps, but clearly it's not happened yet. Phase II people unite and request-bomb them, no matter what street you're on!)
