Google Fiber!

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

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

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.

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.

Zach Scott Speeding Mitigation Petition Questions: Answers
posted by Ross Houston on July 16th, 2012 8:13 AM
I'm not sure why you think taking Camacho doesn't make sense for these people. I come in at Airport and Zach Scott and I turn left on Camacho and take it all the way around to Berkman. There's less traffic there, and it also puts me on the correct side of the one-way alley I have to turn in. And Simond is so narrow and still takes me past of bunch of new construction.But your point is right on that just like toll roads, speed bumps are going to cause a lot of people to find new routes that might be hard to foresee.
Zach Scott Speeding Mitigation Petition Questions: Answers
posted by Rahm McDaniel on July 15th, 2012 8:47 AM
I'm also concerned about the impact of speed humps or tables to both our cars (from wear and tear) and to nearby streets.For example, I live on McCloskey between Berkman and Ella Wooten Park. Here in Mueller our primary traffic calming tool on residential streets is parked cars, which narrows the path and encourages drivers to slow down. When people East on McCloskey, they frequently drive slowly between Tom Miller and Mattie, but speed up substantially as they pass the area between the park and the Mattie wide median (where no cars are parked), and continue at high speed to Berkman. Along our one block at this end, there are 8 young children, not to mention all the kids that cross to the pool and park from Mattie where the cars pick up speed. Sadly, most of these folks are Mueller Residents who frankly should know better and I've told a few that. But I'm fairly sure that if people are using McCloskey as an alternative to Zach Scott already, they'll only do it more often if Zach Scott gets speed humps.At any rate, my preferred solution would be stop signs at both McCloskey and Mattie, along with stop signs at Zach Scott at the other end of the wide median.

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

Halloween- Question for new residents
posted by MuellerFan on November 1st, 2010 8:05 AM
We moved in this year, and having heard the stories, we were prepared w/tons of candy and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the porch and passing it out. Here on upper Camacho, we didn't see the same volume as further south, in the center of Mueller. We still had over 180 trick-or-treaters by my count, though. I went inside and turned off lights at 9pm, even though I still had candy, because I think that should be the official time to stop! I saw stragglers on the street as I was heading in, but no one came to our door after 9pm.I asked a friend with older kids yesterday when kids age-out of trick-or-treating these days. She said that most of them continue through middle school, and usually stop when they start high school. Some of those 8th graders look like adults (but are still kids, really). [:snake:]

Dan, are the only people affected on Upper Camacho, or are adjoining streets likely to be zapped as well?

Did a 4G warwalk around the neighborhood.Best 4G signal: Berkman and Antone.Worst 4G signal: Upper Camacho. Phone stayed in 3G from Berkman to Zach Scott.In general, 4G signals get spotty at street level north of Antone.
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

Muellerites; Upper Camacho will be having a street wide Sidewalk Sale this Saturday, Dec. 5th from 8:00AM to 2:00PM. The sale will begin at 4416 Camacho and continue up to 4448 Camacho by Berkman. Several homes will have tables and blankets out on the sidewalk filled with sale items and goodies. Please come by and view the new & used selections! If you would like to earn some extra Christmas cash, or clear out room for your kids new toys, then feel free to bring your own new or used items to add to the sale. I will be happy to provide you with selling space at my house at 4440, though you will be asked to stay with your items and facilitate your own sale. This Sidewalk Sale has been approved by Alliance, who stated that the covenants allow each household to have exactly two garage sales per year. Please contact Kat Malcom or Jesse Espinosa for details.
Wednesday: On-Street Parking Town Hall

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.

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.
