Hey Jenna, My name is Kathy Winchester and I live here at Mueller. My daughter Whitney has taken care of your children and as it turns out you are friends with Shiela Ogden who dated my son Michael for several years in Houston. Anyway, Michael now works for Crossfit Central and SicFit here in Austin as a personal trainer. He is interested in speaking with you about your training. He said for me to pass along his info and he can direct you to a boot camp or personal training and give you all the info you need. His contact info is: Michael Winchester rossfitcentral.com">michaelwinchester@crossfitcentral.com Hope this helps.

You guys post interesting arguments that I hadn't thoroughly considered before. I can definitely see how Hancock Center is not convenient for moms with strollers and such (to go without a car.)Fiesta is also a great alternative that doesn't require crossing the highway! I forgot about that. I'm going to check it out based on Meghan's recommendation. 38 1/2 street is great to bike on too! And while there are grocery stores every couple blocks in New York or San Fransico, they're totally different than the ones we're considering building here. Those are much smaller stores that don't have anywhere near the footprint this one will. It's not a fair comparison. With the same logic, you can look at suburban Houston where there's a grocery store at every intersection. And Airport Blvd is not that bad. If you go out from Aldrich, you're only on Airport for a short amount of time. The new sidewalk is fantastic as well if you're not comfortable riding on the road. (there's rarely ever any pedestrian traffic, so you're not obstructing, but riding on the road is still safer because cars don't look for cyclists on the sidewalk.) Crossing 35 at a traffic light is not unsafe. You do it just like in a car. You wait for the light to turn green, then you go. All the other lights are red, so you're not likely to get run over or anything.As more people start riding on Airport, drivers will become aware of the cyclists' presence, and the experience will be safer.

Harassment & Bullying in Schools - An Open Community Forum on Safe Schools Austin, Texas (September 8, 2009) - Every student in Texas schools deserves an education free from the harmful physical and emotional effects of harassment and bullying. However, as schools across the state are reopening for the Fall term, thousands of Texas children dread going to school to face the taunts, jeers, humiliation, physical intimidation and pain inflicted through harassment and bullying. The Equality Texas Foundation is concerned that many school districts' current policies on bullying and harassment may be inadequate, or inadequately enforced. Although Texas' schools have worked to make safe schools a reality by putting in place bullying and harassment policies required by the Texas Education Code, we believe current statutes do not yet adequately address the prevention, intervention, and elimination of bullying and harassment from our schools. Although well-defined and communicated policies help deal with bullying and harassment when it happens, a comprehensive program is necessary for prevention. Programs that integrate a data-tracking system for bullying and harassment incidents, a robust district-level policy that is consistently enforced, and a research-proven program to educate both students and staff about bullying and harassment have been found to be the most effective. On Wednesday, September 16, 2009, the Equality Texas Foundation will host the first of several open community forums on safe schools. Safe Schools Forum Wednesday, September 16, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. Baker School Cafeteria 3908 Avenue B, Austin, TX 78751 Panelists: Kime Mitchell Parent of a bullied child in the Georgetown ISD Megan Flowers Coordinator, No Place for Hate program of the Anti-Defamation League Dianna Groves Student Intervention Specialist, Dept. of Student Support, Austin ISD Eric Metcalf Chief Program Officer, Communities in Schools of Central Texas Moderator: Martha Oestreich Board Chair, Equality Texas Foundation & Executive Director of Development, UT Division of Diversity and Community Engagement Parents and students are encouraged to join us for this important open discussion on school safety. This forum is presented by Equality Texas Foundation, in collaboration with the City of Austin Human Rights Commission, the Anti-Defamation League, the Texas Civil Rights Project, and the Texas GSA Network, a project of Out Youth. Additional Community Forums on Safe Schools are scheduled for Houston, San Antonio, El Paso, and Dallas/Fort Worth. Equality Texas Foundation educates and engages the public about policies and their effect on Texans of all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressi ons.
A question for Mueller's families...
posted by Elizabeth on May 7th, 2009 10:27 PM
I really think that you have taken my concerns the wrong way. I have nothing against families who you say that you work with - get a grip. A good majority of the crime that we see on the news happens to take place in East Austin. Period. That's it. Do I think there are crack dealers setting up shop at "The Kensington" across your lovely greenbelt there - ofcourse there is! Get off of your high-horse already and come down to planet Earth - where I live! I grew up in an inner-city. I lived for years in Houston's "Flower District" - yes, that is Houston's historic 3rd ward. Loved living there when I was in my early twenties.Never had a problem but I didn't walk around the neighborhood alone at night either because that would have been foolish. I have a family now and my child is my main concern - so, again, no one is insulting your clients, or, Mueller, so...I think you should try not to be so sensitive when a prospective future resident asks valid ?s such as these!
A question for Mueller's families...

Thanks everyone for your responses so far! We were previously "city-people" being from Houston & NY originally...we have lived in Lakeway for the last several years and although it is beautiful and safe out here - we miss the city. Being new parents though, I feel that our concerns are pretty valid. NW Austin - Steiner, Lakeway, the Barton Creek neighborhoods are about as safe as you can get, but again, we truly miss the diversity and culture that city-living offers. We grew up in the city, and, we would like for our son to also get to experience similar things that we enjoyed growing up - the museums, theater, etc., etc. - it's all a long drive from Lakeway... Love Mueller, love the concept, can see that all the new families are forming strong community bonds and we would love to be a part of that - been searching for a family-friendly community close to the city for a long time, the fact that the homes are new, the community is very Green-oriented, it's reasonably priced - these are all very attractive points and Austin needed a community like Mueller - the burbs are not for everyone... Still, I was unnerved by the high number of child predators that I found on Familywatchdog.com, but, they are not only in the 78723 area code but also in the 78703, 78704, and, 78705 areas... I think that the builders need to focus on 'safety' as a key issue of concern for Mueller residents. I think it's great that some parks - especially the Lake Park since it's located on the outskirts of the community anyway remain public, but, I feel that some parks, pools, etc - really should be reserved for residents only. I understand that the 'outlying neighborhoods' were there first, but, - since they are not paying residents of the community - to me, it's a negative that every park and pool will be open to the public - which is my understanding. I also think that some pressure should be put on the developers to move that "Hourly and Weekly" Motel (NO - It's really NOT an apartment complex)! - across the street on Tom Mueller. When we were visiting time before last - we saw people from over there throwing stuff over the fence and then jumping the fence themselves to come over to the Greenway - the people using that motel do come over to the Greenway and will come into contact with Mueller residents there sooner or later. Because of the high-crime in East Austin I hope that both the developers of Mueller, and, the city of Austin are doing everything in there power to make Mueller a safe place for all the families who are moving there... I plan to talk to the people at the Mueller central office a bit more too before we make our final decision for these reasons... want to know if APD routinely patrols the neighborhood, the plans (if any) for getting rid of that motel, about their plans to make sure that the community stays safe...
Frost Bank Announcement
posted by lkunz on January 6th, 2009 2:12 PM
FROST BEGINS CONSTRUCTION ON NEW FINANCIAL CENTER AT MUELLER Frost’s first green location to be built in accordance with the U.S. Green Build Council’s LEED Silver Certification Program SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 6, 2009 – Frost Bank has broken ground on a new, full-service financial center, located at 1200 Barbara Jordan Blvd. in the Mueller mixed-use community. The 4,500-square-foot financial center, scheduled to open in Spring 2009, will offer a full range of banking, investment, and insurance services for consumer and business customers. "Our growth in the past decade has been both through acquisitions and building new financial centers in strategic areas," said Austin Region President Marvin Rickabaugh. “With the announcement of the new Mueller financial center, Frost is continuing on the journey to expand our presence in key markets." Rickabaugh also announced that Ken Gates will serve as the senior commercial lender at the Mueller location. "It is exciting to be a part of the revitalization of Austin’s former airport site into a diverse and vibrant community at Mueller,” said Gates. "We are extremely pleased to be opening a financial center at Mueller and look forward to bringing our special brand of Texas banking to current and future customers in the area." For the first time, Frost will build a location in accordance with the U.S. Green Build Council’s LEED Silver Certification Program. Elements that will be integrated into the design and use of the financial center include using concrete in the motor bank lanes and alternative roofing materials to take advantage of their reflective qualities; reducing water usage by 30% by incorporating low-flow toilets, aerators on faucets, and selecting low water usage plant species in the landscaping; investing in alternative energy sources; committing to the collection and storage of recyclables; utilizing regional materials in the construction of the facility; and selecting and installing low gas emitting materials, such as adhesives, sealants, paints, wall coverings, and flooring. In addition to the building’s green features, the bank will have incorporated into it several unique design elements to reflect Frost’s Texas roots and reinforce its heritage. Native limestone, concrete floors, a large casting of original Texas currency will evoke the Texas spirit, along with a video of a Texas flag flying on a plasma-screen TV and even an old-fashioned boot scrape. The new financial center will include a Frost Room with Internet stations for online banking, a big-screen TV tuned to financial programming, and a library stocked with books about Texas and selected publications. Bankers will welcome customers personally at a greeter station, in an open design that facilitates communication between bankers and customers. The Frost Bank at Mueller will also feature a three-lane motor bank with a drive-through ATM. Ken Gates, senior vice president, will head up Commercial Lending at the Mueller Financial Center. Gates is a Chartered Financial Analyst with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from Abilene Christian University and a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance from the University of Texas. He has more than 20 years of experience in banking and asset management. Frost is the banking, investments and insurance subsidiary of Cullen/Frost Bankers, Inc. (NYSE: CFR), a financial holding company headquartered in San Antonio, with assets of $14.1 billion at September 30, 2008. The corporation provides a full range of business and consumer banking products, investment and brokerage services, insurance products and investment banking services. Frost operates more than 100 financial centers across Texas in the Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Rio Grande Valley and San Antonio regions. Founded in 1868, Frost is the largest banking organization headquartered in Texas that operates only in Texas, with a legacy of helping Texans with their financial needs during three centuries.
