First, I'm so sorry for all the posts. I thought my computer was acting up, but clearly I was just being thick. In case anyone is interested in this issue, I heard from a neighbor that the man to contact is Carl Paulson of Catellus. So I reached out to him, and this is what he had to say:Hi Jennifer, Construction traffic should not be using Zach Scott to get over to the new development on the east side of Berkman. Construction traffic should be coming into Mueller off either end of Berkman (51st or Manor). We will send out notice to our contractors working on the new subdivision north of Zach Scott and to all the home builders working east of Berkman, reminding them of their obligations to keep their trucks on Berkman. It is hard for us to “catch” them doing this, so I do appreciate your notice. Carl

2 EXPERIENCE HENDRIX (Jimi Hendrix) Tickets Tues 9/30 MEZZANINE at Cost!!!
posted by Sandy on September 29th, 2014 11:25 AM
I have 2 tickets to the Experience Hendrix show at the Moody Theater on Tuesday September 30 in Mezzanine 3 Row D that I am selling at Cost. The original price on these was $106.25 per ticket from the box office. This is the Jimi Hendrix tribute show featuring a Supergroup of musicians. Those of you who went 2and a half years ago, know that this wil be one of the best shows to come through Austin this year. See Below for details. The Moody Theater is where Austin City Limits tapes their shows and the Mezzanine is a very special, small area, that sits just above the crowd with a really great view of the Stage. This is where the VIP boxes are. The details of the show are as follows: Experience Hendrix Celebrating the Music and Legacy of Jimi Hendrix The eighth edition of the celebrated Experience Hendrix Tour returns to Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater with special event performances that represent an ongoing tribute to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix. The tour brings together a diverse group of musical greats paying homage to the abiding genius of Jimi Hendrix. This year’s line-up ranges from metal legend Zakk Wylde [Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society], blues icon Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Texas guitar gods Doyle Bramhall II and Eric Johnson, blues rocker Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes, and Mato Nanji [Indigenous]. The rhythm section, as always, includes bassist Billy Cox, the only player, apart from Jimi Hendrix himself, who was part of both the Band of Gypsys and the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Chris Layton, the drummer who, along with the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, was a founder of Double Trouble. In terms of format, the tour offers multiple opportunities for performers and audiences to witness unique collaborations among the participating artists such as Buddy Guy with Jonny Lang, Zakk Wylde with Chris Layton and will highlight these artists and the others performing their favorite Hendrix signature songs including “Little Wing,” “Fire,” “Purple Haze,” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”. As has been the case with previous Experience Hendrix outings, special guests are expected to sit in at many of the dates, making the concerts all that much more memorable for both new and veteran Hendrix fans. Past special guests have included Paul Rodgers, Joe Satriani, Hubert Sumlin, Steve Vai, Susan Tedeschi, Robert Randolph, Carlos Santana, Robby Krieger, and others. Doors: 6:30 PM · Show: 8:00 PM

POA Board meeting notes 30 July 2014
posted by Betsy on July 30th, 2014 8:21 PM
POA Board meeting July 30, 2014 Present: Dee Desjardin, Carl Paulson, Betsy Hilton, Fei Dai, Jennifer Harvey Absent: Greg Weaver Work session - no discussion of fines, assessments, legal, etc. Tommy Tucker off board, Greg on - due to personnel changes at Catellus Pool - Pool attendance lower than last year (before Bartholomew) - Carl attended pool committee meeting. Committee gave comments last Fall on old 2008 plan. Designers incorporated many comments. Reviewed again in Feb - depth, chairlift. Most of the committee okay with design, although some think it should be deeper. Plan is to be 4’6” deep in lap lanes. Will have chair lift similar to Ella Wooten. - Chlorine levels - reports several weeks ago and again this weekend. Test reports from Monday looked okay. Landscape maintenance: - New bids received - 5 proposals - Prairie - Wildflower Center says it’s doing well. Does it need more paid maintenance rather than reliance on volunteer efforts. Suggestion for POA to discuss with Friends of the Prairie regarding long-term sustainability of volunteers to mark invasive weeds - 46 trees replaced since May 1, approximately 20 more still needed Pond Maintenance - Adjustments to fountains made to reduce misting - Removing invasive elephant ears - 200 gallons of trash is removed each month Resident Concerns - Filming - Catelllus discussed process with City. City relies on film crew to work out issues. City wants to support filming. Discussion about asking our POA rules committee to look into whether rules are needed to govern homeowner decisions to allow filming that impacts other neighbors. POA has no role if filming is all in city ROW. Only notified if POA property is used. - Street tree maintenance - Letters have been sent to property owners who need to replace trees, telling them to replace them this fall. If not done, POA will replace trees and bill owners. Prior discussion about POA taking over tree maintenance - majority of residents opposed that. Notices about limbing up trees were sent in April. Another reminder will be sent this Fall or POA will do the work and bill owners. - Apartment dwellers can buy a season pass to use Mueller pools during public hours. Contact Jennifer for details. Public hours at 2nd pool may be staggered from hours at first pool to allow broader range of possible hours for non-owners. - Play equipment in common area on Threadgill - POA to check with attorneys to see if POA bears any liability. Lots of events in the next few months: Upcoming POA events  Social Hour – July 30th (Tonight!)  New Resident Orientation – September 3rd  Music in the Park – September 18th  Fall Garage Sale – September 20th  POA Annual Meeting – tentatively November 5th  Fall Festival – November 8th Upcoming Developer & External events  Ultimate Field Day – September 6th  Time’s Fit Foodie – September 13th (Road Closures)  HAMM Music Night – September 23rd  McCallum Movie Night – September 27th  Movie in Your Park – October 3rd  National Night Out Kickoff – October 4th  Movie in Your Park – October 10th  Movie in Your Park – October 17th  ALS Walk – October 18th (Road Closures)  Light the Night – October 25th (Road Closures)  VIVA Streets – October 26th (Road Closures)  FAAN FARE – November 1st  Campfire Kids Walk – November 8th  Cure Search – November 15th  Ridgetop Fun Run – November 22nd  Tower Lighting – December 2nd  Lights of Love – December 5th (Road Closures) Annual meeting - tentatively Nov. 5th at Seton.
Any interest in a Mueller community pre-school?
posted by Cari Keller on February 14th, 2014 1:33 PM
Thank you for the suggestions. I looked up both St. George and St. Paul's programs and they are both religious based. I can't imagine that all families in Mueller are comfortable putting their children in a program that pushes religion. I know we aren't. Those programs, as most of the ones I have found, are based on all day/5day a week enrollment. Again, I can't imagine that fits a lot of families needs. As a SAHM, I cringe at putting my kids in an all day program just so they can have the benefits of preschool. I have found two other community based programs in Austin. A South Austin Co-op based in Bouldin Creek. and a mom based co-op in the Brentwood area Both these programs are community based programs. Wouldn't it be great to have something like that right here in Mueller? Something that we could walk to? Something that uses the resources and heavily involves our local families? As a co-op, costs would be more reasonable and families would be more involved/connected. Is anyone else in the Mueller community interested in considering this opportunity?

Work Session notes Dec 16, 2013
posted by Betsy on December 16th, 2013 9:14 PM
I attended my first work session meeting of the POA Board today. It was pretty short but I wanted to post some brief notes for everyone's info. - Let's Talk will continue on a quarterly basis on the first Wednesday of the month, starting in February. - Irrigation has been shut off for the winter, so if you notice any irrigation running in the parks, please report it to Jennifer Harvey - Residents Activities Committee - Volunteers who can attend meetings and be active in the committee work of planning activities are needed. Kat Malcom is planning a rescheduled Social Hour for January. - Pruning of street trees - Survey results were mixed. Board discussed making this a topic at the next Let's Talk so resident input can be received. - Jennifer is continuing to investigate more affordable solutions to adding shade at Ella Wooten Park. Any supports for shade structures have to be outside the safety fall zone around the equipment. What's been investigated so far is a huge canopy that would be so large it would require a couple of trees to be removed. Such a large structure would also be very expensive. - Board member Carl Paulson will talk with RVI about incorporating some kind of remembrance garden/area in an existing or future part of the development, possibly the SE greenway. That's about it…. let me know if you have questions. Betsy

Thanks for electing me as the resident representative to the POA Board. I'll post info here and on Facebook as I get it. With the addition of one resident, the Board expands to 5 people, with Catellus adding Carl Paulson to the Board. We elected officers last night - Tommy Tucker continues as President, Dee Desjardin as VP, Fei Dei as Treasurer and me as Secretary. We'll have our first meeting in December. Feel free to send me a PM to contact me. I will continue to monitor the FB and CitiCite pages regularly to see what's being discussed. Betsy
Economic study: Urban Rail impact could reach $31 billion
posted by danx111 on September 9th, 2013 1:47 PM
A new study shows that the economic benefits of Urban Rail could include 58,000 new jobs, a 17 percent reduction in parking demand, 2,900 affordable housing units and a $31 billion total economic impact in Austin by 2030. Kevin Johns and Greg Kiloh of the City's Economic Growth and Redevelopment Services Office, along with Dr. Bob Paterson and Dr. Paul Navratil of the University of Texas briefed the City Council and the public on possible economic benefits and impacts for the community, should Austin invest in Urban Rail. The benefits were found after a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development simulated development around Urban Rail transit centers and then funded a benefit analysis using an advanced computer system housed at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at UT. The research and grant are part of the City's Sustainable Places Project. According to City Officials, these benefits depend on the mode of transportation and routes chosen, as well as what types of government policies are established regarding development.
Concert tonight at Wildflower

Wildflower House Concert Date: Thursday, August 29th, 2013 Time: 7:00pm to 10:00pm Location: Wildflower Terrace Event Type: This is a Public Event Community: Mueller Community Hosted By: Anne Wright City/Town: Austin, Texas Description: 7 PM Byrd & Street 8 PM Judy Painter & Rose Kimball 9 PM Open Jam! Tommy Byrd and Kathy Street’s pasts includes working with Willie Nelson and Geenzinslaw Brothers, awards and notice from Texas Music Awards, The Kerrville Folk Festival, Folk DJ Chart, Texas Roots Chart, KPFT in Houston and Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul and Mary). For ten years they’ve been sharing the stage all over the southwest. With harmonies compared to the Everly Brothers, Kathy’s sweet pure voice is a perfect contrast to Tommy’s earthy soulful sound. Playing together since 1990, Rose Kimball and Judy Painter are musical storytellers. Through their original songs and a variety of obscure covers, they take their listeners with them through emotions of love, joy, & heartbreak and real life tales of triumph, loss and just plain fun. Rose plays guitar and bass and Judy plays guitar and mandolin. Both contribute vocally and their great harmonizing and vocal trading off is a mainstay to their sound.
St Pauls
posted by Tanya Hill on August 24th, 2013 10:09 PM
Both of my grand children go to St. Paul. This is their second year. My grand daughter is now in PK4 and my grand son is in 2nd grade. St. Paul has been an amazing school for the children. My grand daughter had Mrs. Devine last year in PK3 and she learned a great deal and Mrs. Devine is a sweet loving teacher with all the children we absolutely loved her. This year she has Mrs. Mitchell and she is loving her class too. All of the teachers are great and have lots of experience. From what I can tell, they have very little turnover with staff and with children. Every family we have spoken too loves the preschool. My grand son in 2nd grade loves the school too. He has learned so much in the past two years. The director of the preschool is super involved and all the children and families know her very well. She is very open and makes herself available to everyone. We love St. Paul and are very happy our grand children are there.

Austin Energy Rate Increase re:Solar
posted by Jeffrey Dwyer on July 30th, 2013 1:45 AM
Perhaps paulsjv is referring to the fact that the Regulatory Charges on our electric bills include ERCOT transmission fees. The point I think is that there is virtually no transmission cost from his array to other customers and/or virtually no transmission cost to him. Yet both are billed for transmission costs through the Regulatory Charges and perhaps other transmission charges are embedded in the rates.On my latest bill, from 6/19/2013 to 07/19/2013, I generated 1089 kWh and consumed 1092 kWh. Although only a net 3 kWh were transmitted to me, I paid transmission costs on 1092 kWh. Someone else is going to pay transmission costs on the 1089 kWh I put back in the system. There is your double dipping.Then there are the Community Benefit Charges which include reimbursements to Austin Energy for solar rebates among other things.If solar customers were able to keep their surpluses, it would not make us free riders on the system. We pay all of the same fees on the electric bill including fees to offset the rebates we received. Instead, if we could keep the surplus, Austin Energy could perhaps lower the rebate as the systems would pay for themselves more quickly and there would be incentive to build as efficient a home as possible and incentive to conserve as much energy as possible while living in the home.By the way, the double billing program I referred to in an earlier post is for those Austin Energy solar customers who receive bills in the mail. City of Austin sends two separate bills each month to solar customers instead of one. One bill is for electricity only. The other is for the remaining utilities such as water, garbage collection etc. This is the program that probably costs about $25,000 annually. The only benefit I can see in it to Austin Energy is keeping the surplus solar. The total annual solar surplus that Austin Energy gains by this may not even cover the added expense of sending two bills instead of one.

Adjusted TCAD Notice of Appraised Value
posted by Betsy on July 3rd, 2012 7:21 PM
Paulsjv - They likely didn't add the solar value to your home if you didn't file the exemption form. Next year they have said they'll add the solar up front, and then we'll have time to file the exemption form. This year, those who filed the form received a corrected notice adding the value of the solar to the overall home value. They also should see the SO indication for the solar exemption, and the solar amount is deducted before the taxes are computed for each taxing entity.
Transportation Committee meeting notes 30 May 2012
posted by Betsy on May 31st, 2012 9:55 PM
Mueller Transportation CommitteeMeeting notes - May 30, 2012 (Carl Paulson) - Section 6 progress - 1st phase complete in 6 weeks. Builders start in August. - Will start 2nd phase of Section 6 in December - Have started on infrastructure for Section 7b (Market district and PAC - Berkman and Barbara Jordan extensions) - expected completion is Dec. (including opening of Berkman) - Received permit for 1st phase of town center (section 2b) - Aldrich extension a little further north, and McBee St. (serves Children’s Museum and Playhouse). Start construction in next month. - Mosaic II and Residence Inn under construction - finance and route updates given to Council. Recommend starting with route from Mueller through UT/downtown to convention center. Work sessions underway. Council will decide by early-mid August whether to include on Fall 2012 bond referendum. - Maintenance facility at Mueller - nothing decided on location. Likely up near Market district to allow future extension up Berkman. Will go around roundabout with traffic. - - Girard Kinney gave background on project, coordination with adjacent neighborhoods and churches. - Speed limit on 51st will be lowered to 35 mph. - Cross-section includes raised median with pedestrian refuge, cycle tracks (dedicated bike facilities), sidewalk, street trees and 4 vehicular lanes (2 each direction). - City council unanimously adopted the Vision and instructed City Manager to recommend ways to implement the plan. Catellus sharing in funding. - Final bond recommendation reduced funding to $1 Million - Catellus moving forward with designing adjacent building projects to align with the Vision. - City had asked Catellus to consider roundabout at this location. Catellus engaged consultant from WI with roundabout expertise. Consultant determined that a multilane roundabout would be needed to accommodate traffic at 51st & Berkman. Sufficient space is not available so a roundabout alternative at this intersection is not being pursued. Signalized intersection will remain as originally planned. Catellus will continue to look for opportunities to incorporate roundabouts at other future intersections. Discussion about possibility of Berkman at Zach Scott (may not be possible at this point). - Catellus handling design and engaged the WI consultant for the conceptual design work. Will get feedback from City on the concepts. Public input will be sought. Catellus and City will work to develop schedule over the coming months. City will fund construction of improvements. Also, City just opened 2-lane left turn onto Airport at median near Home Depot and regional retail - seem to be helping. City will evaluate crash data after 6 months and evaluate the need for further improvements, which might include the prohibition of straight through movements between parking lots. - No resurfacing on City’s yearly schedule. Striping would be done after resurfacing. - collected counts 2nd week of May. Will do signal warrant study and give to signals dept. The City will update us on her findings. Signal is already paid for... just waiting to meet warrants. City discussing with new signals engineer.... could be cut through in Airport median with clear path for bikes. Nathan Wilkes and Tom Wald coordinated on a sketch. - Tom Wald commented that all 4 crosswalks should be accommodated at intersections, not just three crosswalks as has been done at some intersections.Also discussed what could be done to improve safety around the parks for children crossing into the parks. City so far has nothing to offer. They will not install Children At Play signs.
Any Interest in East Austin Democrats?
posted by James Nortey on May 21st, 2012 3:18 AM
Paulsjv, there is already a great nonpartisan organization called Hermanos De East Austin which is already devoted to help register voters. I am a member and our mission is to serve promote and advance the people and rich culture of East Austin. Our central focus is to recruit and engage the residents of East Austin to assist in the overall prosperity of our neighborhoods.You learn more here: great group is PODER-People Organized in Defense of Earth and the Resources which also registers voters. Their mission is to redefine environmental issues as social and economic justice issues.You can learn more here: only issue concern is that elected leaders here in Travis County tend to pay more attention to the partisan groups. In addiction to registering voters and boosting participation, it would be nice to have an organized group of citizens who could advocated for the interest of East Austin (both for Mueller and our neighbors). That's why I think we need a partisan organization that can make endorsements.

Once we begin to do this we will, in February, send applications to all property owners that we have identified as having solar panels and they will have until April 30th to file an exemption.Thanks,James L.

Probably more info than you wanted ....I haven't had one installed but would look into whether it is made of PVC or the preferable HDPE or polyethylene. PVC has lead in it as a stabilizer. You might google stories on artificial turf in schools."artificial turf and lead" A few years ago schools were spending LOTS of money putting PVC turf in and then LOTS of money taking them out because of kids and college students' exposure to lead-- especially when the PVC sits in the hot Texas sun which increases leaching of the lead from the product. I am surprised that the PVC kids product- along w other lead tainted kid products were legal (contrary to what most think, they still aren't lead- FREE.. but they lowered the limit). OK maybe not so surprised (I think Ron Paul cast the SOLE dissenting vote AGAINST the ban on lead in kids toys ..meaning he voted to keep the lead IN toys .and look how much support he has). I guess the invisible hand of Adam Smith is supposed to make that market correction and it is true that that this might happen w/out regulation..just AFTER a few million kids have brain/nerve damage..but I digress..Not all toys, sporting goods, play equipment etc are even covered by the standard (there are always exclusions).. SO... just listen to your mother and remain militant about hand washing before eating (for adults, too- car interiors, carpets can have lots of nasty stuff in them flame retardants.. antimony..lead..).. and encourage kids to use pacifiers rather than thumb sucking F963, Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety 0.06 percent is reduced to 0.009 percent effective August 14, 2009 as mandated by Congress in section 101(f) of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, Public Law 110–314.
Transportation Committee meeting notes 29 Feb 2012
posted by Betsy on February 29th, 2012 6:55 PM
Mueller Transportation CommitteeMeeting notes - Feb. 29, 2012 (Carl Paulson)- Berkman extension (1/2 width)--- Simond to Robert Browning by June for Section VI homes.--- Robert Browning to Philomena should be completed by December- Contract has been awarded for the infrastructure at the Market District including Berkman from Philomena to 51st. Work should be completed by October 2012.- Design work has started on the next residential phases - north of Section VI and also east of Berkman.- IH-35/51st St design - prelim design now. City doesn’t expect construction for 2-3 years. Studies underway. Roundabout being considered at 51st St. intersection with the southbound frontage road.- Striping on IH-35 northbound frontage road into Mueller retail area needs improvement.- Barbara Jordan issues near Home Depot. Medians were extended with paint but still having crashes with driveway. Next City will install candlesticks to better define the intersection space. (Should occur in next month or so.) If crashes are still problematic after 6-month review, permanent changes may be made prohibit the movement across Barbara Jordan between the shopping centers on each side. (Rick K)- Command Center (CTEC) - discussion about need to reduce speed limit on 51st. Road diet planned for 51st east of Berkman - possibly next year when the road is resurfaced. Hopefully that will result in speed reduction.- Construction planned on CTEC entrance to replace the bridgeSpeed limit on 51st at Berkman is now 40mph. City asked whether they could reduce speed to 35mph. After 51st Vision is built, speeds should slow due to the design and then it could be restudied and speeds lowered based on the 85% speeds.- 51st & Berkman - City would like to build roundabout. Catellus’ current plan has a signalized intersection but Catellus is now working with City to look at a roundabout option. That decision may not be made before the market district infrastructure is started. City recognizes that a lot of coordination would be needed to convince stakeholders that pedestrian crossings of 51st would be safe at a multilane roundabout.- Status of 51st St Vision - Jim Adams will likely present at next Transportation Committee meeting (May 30). Jessica will post link to info on Bond development task force has been briefed on the vision. (Renee Orr)- Speeding mitigation only - Cut-through mitigation may be added next year- Requestor must live on the street- Not intended for major arterials- Speed & volume counts will be taken - if speeds >3mph over speed limit, then street qualifies and will be included in ranking of requests. Ranking considers crash data, frequency of speakers, presence of sidewalks, whether street is bike route, neighborhood support for proposed solutions, etc. Will fund requests until money runs out. Old unfunded requests automatically re-considered each 6 months as new funds are allocated, until request expires after two years. - Submittals received from Mueller for Berkman, Antone and Zach Scott. Catellus thinks the other 1/2 of Berkman may be completed in 2 years.- Results of speed studies in Mueller. Speeds shown are the 85% speeds, meaning that 15% of traffic exceeds these speeds:---Berkman - NB 34.3, SB 34.9 => qualifies for further study---Zach Scott - WB 32.9, EB 33.8 => qualifies for further study---Antone - WB 31.9, SB 31 => doesn’t qualify for further study- City will develop speeding mitigation concept plan and coordinate with City services (fire, EMS, trash, etc.) Then plan goes to requestor for coordination and statement of neighbor support for proposed action.- Data will be shared with APD for their use in planning enforcement.- Urban rail update - no update and no Council action has been taken to prioritize segments and alignment is not defined. Manor Rd. and Airport Blvd alignments both being evaluated as part of the environmental impact study.- Signal at Zach Scott - City reviewing and warrants not yet met. City will get wtih signals department to see if interim improvement for bike/ped access across airport could be provided. Alan Hughes (Airport corridor PM) was suggested as a speaker at our meeting May 30.- Roundabout improvement still being design. No schedule for construction. City & Catellus resistant to interim improvements, preferring to focus efforts on the ultimate solution. Concerns should be reported to 311. - Bike/ped access on interim Berkman (1/2 width) up to Market District - a temporary trail will be provided outside the roadway so we’ll be able to ride our bikes to the grocery!- Bike Boxes or ‘2 stage turn queue’ will be used at some intersections- City working on educational materials- City looking at removing the oversaturation of No Parking signs

I'm a proud Eagle Scout from Troop 410. We used to collect recycled newspapers for our fund raisers, under Scout Masters OE Meyers and Paul D Watson. When did the Troop move to Austin? We were located in San Antonio at Callahan and Loop 410 (Near St Lukes) in the 1980's.I encourage everyone to help these youngsters get off their Playstations and get outdoors.

Streetlamp update
posted by sloneycho on November 16th, 2011 8:46 PM
Some interesting information regarding the streetlamps came out at the POA annual meeting this evening.It seems that the City has made a commitment to make full cutoff fixtures the standard everywhere by 2015. This includes Mueller. Austin Energy is in the midst of a multi-year testing program to identify appropriate replacement fixtures, and we are at their mercy to pick a good one that not only shields the sky, but also our houses.Carl Paulson with Catellus indicated that the new streets being built next year will continue to get the Town Lake fixture, only to have them replaced after a year or two when the new streetlight is chosen. What I don't understand is why they aren't using the new streets as testing areas for the new fixture. Mueller has a pretty unique streetscape, and tests in other neighborhoods may not give a good indication of a streetlight's chances of success in Mueller.If you agree that Mueller needs to be included in the streetlight testing, please and let them know.Here's what I'm sending them:-steve

Transportation Committee meeting notes - Oct. 26, 2011
posted by Betsy on October 26th, 2011 4:58 PM
Mueller Transportation CommitteeMeeting notes - Oct. 26, 2011Development update (Carl Paulson)- Section 6 - out to bid now, will start const in Dec. Deliver lots to builders in June 2012.- Infrastructure to serve market district - out to bid in Dec. - discussion of interim bike/ped access to the grocery. Catellus’ plan is to construct the ultimate cycle tracks for southbound (SB) Berkman, and put shared lane markings in the vehicle lane for northbound (NB) traffic until other side of roadway built (several years). Sharing the NB lane will be difficult for those with trailers, etc and with slight uphill grade. Carl says widening pavement is not an option, but they’ll look more at an off-site trail.- Electric substation work should be done in Nov. 2011.Cycle Tracks proposed on Mueller and on Berkman. Reviewed preliminary layouts.Cap Metro plans bus stops on Berkman at Antone, Simond & Barbara Jordan. Catellus wasn’t sure what bus route the stops will serve.51st & IH 35 update - Draft revised layout from TxDOT circulated. Bike lanes will be created on 51st St. bridge over IH 35. Still a few years out.... maybe 2013.IH 35 frontage striping south of Barbara Jordan - striping very faded and now a free-for-all. Jessica will follow up with adjacent neighborhood to see if revised striping helped and how it should be restriped (i.e. keep as is or revert to original plan with 3rd lane).U-turn for SB Airport - interest from Cherrywood in u-turn option between Manor and Delwood II. Would like to allow U-turn for SB Airport at 38 1/2 (or between 38 1/2 & Scheiffer) to come back NB. City will check on allowing at 38 1/2 light, or at crossover at Dollar General.Loading at Barbara Jordan & Lancaster - near Tino’s, etc., 18-wheelers stop on eastbound Barbara Jordan to unload supplies. They are blocking through lane. Jessica will have property manager advise tenants that this is not permitted.Roundabout update - design underway - City hopes to complete within a couple of months. City still monitoring signal timing at Airport and Aldrich.Betsy
