Vandalized Cars on Mattie St
posted by Peter Finklea on June 10th, 2018 6:18 PM
Hey Mueller, Yesterday, afternoon of June 9th, an officer came to my door and said my car had the driver's side mirror broken off. He had just finished talking to another neighbor that had his broken as well. There was another broken mirror a few cars down the lane. The officer says that probably kid's were to blame. He said several cars had their side mirrors either turned in toward the car or broken off entirely. Not sure if the incident happened the night before or in the daytime. This was on both sides of the cars. Probably more than one person was involved in the activity. He asked if I had a front porch camera (I didn't) then he went down a few doors and talked to the owners of the other broken mirror. I don't know if they had one either. The officer gave me a Police Report number that he had filed. Let's hope this is the only summer time shenanigans. If you need the Police Report number, let me know. I haven't used these forums in awhile but I will continue to check back on this. Thanks, Peter
Lost Tortoiseshell Cat - Wed Apr 20th
posted by gophils026 on April 20th, 2016 9:33 AM
Our cat ran out last night and we have not been able to find her. With the storms this morning, hopefully she is just hiding somewhere. Please let me know if you have seen her! Feel free to text me at 512.992.9109. We live on Mattie street (near Zach Scott, on the block towards the pool). She answers to Trixie and she is a medium sized tortoiseshell. Her body is fairly dark, but she has a decent amount of white on her face. She is up to date on all her shots, but does not have a collar on. She is usually very friendly cat, but may be more shy outside around strangers. -Michelle

Fall and squirrels
posted by John Tyree on September 30th, 2015 9:25 AM
I found a baby squirrel (5 weeks) on Mattie on Sunday evening that had been orphaned. Wildlife Rescue near Mueller off of Martin Luther King Blvd. takes orphaned and injured wildlife and rehabs them. With the Fall approaching squirrels are getting ready for the winter and are busy gathering food. So please slow down while driving and give these little guys a chance.
Car stalking my morning walk
posted by Sean Michelle Buchner on September 27th, 2015 8:54 AM
As I was walking my dog this morning, a black Nissan Sentra with the liscence plate that starts with DWC was following me from Berkman to McBee down Mattie and turned on one way of Simond- the wrong way. He cut me off as I was on the sidewalk at the alley exit. I strarted screaming, and he drove away. I called the police, but I thought I should post something on her as well.

Mattie between Scales and ZC. Now until we run out. Cupcakes and cold water while it lasts. My daughter's school's student fundraiser, the Bobcat Fun Run, is in full swing and asking her how she would like to raise funds, this was her idea. Wanting to encourage our Kindergarten business women, we are outside now. All goods are in exchange for a donation. This year the funds are allocated to replace a long overdue roof replacement. Thanks!

Thefts on Mattie
posted by Krista Gregory on October 5th, 2014 12:40 PM
I'm so sad about the missing knight. We didn't have anything stolen off our porch but someone tried to rip one of our plants out of the ground! That's right. Someone must have spooked them because it was only halfway out of the ground. Are the police aware of the recent thefts? Are they patrolling at night?

We hope he is just off on some temporary quest and will return soon. If you see him - tell him to come home - or let us know where he is so that we can some and get him.

A world-wide festival known as ciclovia has gained popularity and was brought to Austin as Viva Streets Austin for the first time last year. People gather for a variety of activities with a minimum of central organization. Typical activities include exercise classes, live music, skateboarding, dancing, table tennis, skating, rock wall climbing, dodge ball, arts workshops and much more. Streets will be closed to vehicles from 7:30 am to 6 pm, and events will be held from 10 am to 3 pm. Volunteers will organize the free City-wide Viva! Streets activities, and a complete list isn’t yet available. You’re invited to include your own ideas. Use the street in any fun way you’d like. Thousands of visitors are expected. Your Mueller Neighborhood Association is co-sponsor with the City of Austin. If you would like to organize an activity, have a question or need some ideas, please contact Alexandra Stewart at alexandrastewart@icloud.com or call her at 310-729-8085.

Cars racing on Berkman and Philomena
posted by Liz E on April 14th, 2014 11:45 AM
Has anyone else noticed the cars flooring it down Philomena between Berkman and Mattie? It looks like they're just turning onto Philomena, peeling out at like 50 mph, turning around at Mattie and then peeling away. It's pretty loud and startling, and of course not very safe. It generally happens in the early evening, at least once a week. It worries me because I know lots of people walk down Philomena on the way to HEB, and other than the drag racers it is a super calm street. I wouldn't want anyone to let their little ones wander into the road on a bike and get hurt.

I can't comment directly on those models or the affordable program, but we live in a Streetman Row Home around the corner on Mattie. If it's any consolation, all of us had to purchase our homes without ever having the benefit of touring a finished home so the nagging feeling is to be expected! We had a great experience with Streetman and have had good follow-through on any issues (all minor) after move-in. Welcome to the neighborhood - you will love it!

Transportation Committee meeting notes 26 Feb 2014
posted by Betsy on February 26th, 2014 4:35 PM
Transportation Committee Meeting notes26 February 2014 (Jill)2012 Mobility bond project - money allocated and public/private partnership1st step - preliminary engineering report (how does plan fit with existing utilities, etc., construction cost estimates). Atkins has been hired to do this work over the next 6 months. Looking at I-35 to Berkman. There will be opportunities for public engagement... nothing specific yet. (Rick K - Windsor Park)Berkman intersection function - WB traffic on 51st is so heavy after road diet that the left turn from EB 51st onto Berkman has a hard time finding a gap for a permissive left turn.Pedestrian signal crossing 51st at Vaughn & Bartholomew Pool - Windsor Park would like active when pool opens. City developing criteria for pedestrian hybrid beacons. City recommended calling 311 which will trigger the start of the study process. (Catellus/City)-- Route recently published as recommended to City Council (maps, etc. online). More definition on northern route (Airport or I-35) is expected this Spring, along with mode (urban rail vs BRT) and funding options.-- More public outreach likely-- Route west of I-35 increases the need for good biking/walking connections across I-35. How is this planning being coordinated with Mobility35 and City’s support for that? Parties commenting on either project may want to note. If Mobility35 makes access to the northern route more difficult, that will negatively impact ridership. (Dee) - TxDOT’s long-range plan through Austin under development-- Cherrywood NA getting engaged quickly-- Mueller NA engaged-- TxDOT will present at RMMA PIAC March 11 meeting at Carver Library-- HDR hasn’t looked at the impacts to Mueller TIA yet. They’re waiting for TxDOT to evaluate prior comments and make possible adjustments. The risk of TxDOT getting too set on a design before the impacts to Mueller are known was debated. (Carl)-- Berkman full section from 51st to Philomena within 30 days-- Section 7 (southern part behind Wildflower Terrace) is under construction along with the 1st phase of the last detention pond. -- Catellus expects to finish southern lots by summer & turn over to builders-- Then Catellus will proceed northward up to Zach Scott, starting this summer. As part of that, they’ll complete the full section of Berkman from Manor to Zach Scott near the end of 2014.-- They’ll start on the next neighborhood park in Sept. with a goal of opening the 2nd pool in summer 2015-- Roundabout - Catellus is responding to final comments by City. City will construct but no information yet on their schedule.--Signal at Airport and Zach Scott:----- Flashing Yellow indication replaces old green ball to indicate the permissive turn phase (proceed with caution). Nationally, drivers often misinterpret the green ball and think they have the right of way when they don’t, so the standards have changed to use a flashing yellow turn arrow instead.----- When turning left into Mueller from southbound Airport, most drivers will travel past the crosswalk to see down Airport and determine if it’s safe to proceed. That will result in drivers getting caught in front of the crosswalk (or possibly on the crosswalk) when the light turns red. We discussed moving the crosswalk to the South side of intersection to avoid this conflict. I was told to call 311 so if anyone else thinks this would be an improvement, please also call them. It was pointed out that the City’s Complete Streets policy requires crosswalks on both sides of each street, not just one.-- Making the Mattie/McBee intersection a 4-way stop due to limited visibility for eastbound drivers on McBee to see southbound traffic on Mattie approach the intersection. Catellus says the problem is due to temporary grading that will be cut down when the NW corner is developed. The City said they would look into it but they seem reluctant to install a 4-way stop, even a temporary one. Call 311 to pursue.-- Sight distance at Zach Scott at Berkman - I mentioned this as well but we only had time for a brief discussion. It was pointed out that if we want wide-open sight distance at all intersections, you won’t have buildings near the corners and you would have to eliminate a lot of parking. Both are counter to our sort of development. It was also pointed out that the parked cars are a buffer, so stop prior to the crosswalk, if no pedestrians are coming, pull up to even with the parked cars and then look for traffic on Berkman. I’m just repeating what I heard so don’t shoot the messenger! If that doesn’t work, call 311.-- Berkman Dr. Traffic Study completed and will review with City and scope out options. Catellus says they will set up meeting with Berkman residents soon. Good turnout of residents will be important.-- Discussed whether the opening of the Thinkery necessitates the opening of the additional left turn lane from southbound Airport onto Aldrich. Over the holidays traffic backed up into the through lanes on Airport, but perhaps that was just due to the holidays. Catellus says they’ll monitor the intersection for backups. If you feel this is a problem, call 311. -- The City will be installing a new traffic signal on 51st at Mueller Blvd. in the next few weeks.

Susan, I was going to respond that you're right. Thanks. Sorry you took your post down.

Susan; I gotta tell you in all honesty that I don't have patience for those who choose to not invest a minimum of time into finding out about the development and then complain that they're left in the dark. Many people have gone to a lot of effort to ensure that information is available to those who seek it. It may not be perfect, but it certainly is the most transparent neighborhood I've ever lived in. Please maintain your patience when seeking information and avoid publicly complaining when some detail has not been spoon fed to you.

Diane, I don't disagree relative to attending the POA meetings. However, I think it'd be nice for residents to have a spot to look things up as well. Some residents (particularly those with young children or with otherwise demanding schedules) are unable to attend the meetings, want an answer on a topic that's not being presented...or just don't want to take the time. The best of both worlds is to have meetings for those who want interaction and an online venue for those who don't.

Susan, there are a variety of ways we can find out about what's coming in our neighborhood. Some of those ways have already been mentioned, Mueller Messenger, Front Porch Flyer, MNA meetings, PIAC meetings, Let's Talk meetings, muelleraustinonline.com, etc. So we don't *have* to attend meetings to find out but I want to encourage you to. Some of us have worked very hard to make these meetings happen. I, for one, appreciate the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the folks responsible for developing my neighborhood... to ask questions and give feedback - solicited or otherwise - about what is important to me to have in my neighborhood and what life is like living here while all the developing is going on. The developer's job would be much easier if they just had to send out quarterly updates to us. That is NOT all I want from them. That's about all we had in the beginning and it was not very satisfying. So I encourage you to attend the next POA Let's Talk on Wednesday, Feb 5 at 6 pm at Mueller Central. The topic is about our trees and who will take care of them, individual homeowners or the POA. Other topics will come up if time permits.

I'm going to have to go back and check, but I think they also put development updates in the Mueller Messenger, the monthly newsletter that the POA mails out. Sometimes we also put updates in the Front Porch Flyer, and we did a HUGE story on town center in the last issue. Catellus does update their illustrative maps occasionally, and the one that the MNA has (and brings to meetings) is pretty up to date. We'll get a new one when more has been built.

IMO Residents shouldn't have to attend meetings to find out about what's coming next in Town Center. WIBNI this information was posted quarterly...perhaps via additions to a map as plans solidify?What might it take to get this done?

Susan, To be clear, the north side of McBee has the parking garage for the Thinkery/Town Center. As indicated by Kathy and Dan above, it will be lined will all kinds of stuff including the theatre, mixed use housing, and apartments. However, it may not be lined immediately - Catellus has not announced anything officially on this. The AMLI structure to the south of McBee will also be lined. The constructions here is to be slated to be complete in early 2015, so in all likelihood the garage in the middle of it will be soon covered as the apartments are built out.We will probably have to live with the parking like fortress to the North of Mc Bee for a bit longer. They needed to have parking for the Thinkery, so it was built both for that and in anticipation of coming uses and needs. Mueller is a work-in-progress with lots of good things coming, but we'll have to put up with inconveniences of construction and interim solutions such as the parking fortress for a while to get there.

Dan, Kathy...thanks for the info. At this stage of construction, things really look ugly. I noticed the white pipes on the north side, suggesting the potential for some kind of residential construction...but it didn't seem like there'd be sufficient land for this. Looks can be deceiving!

Yep - Dan's right, and there will also be a movie theater on one side of the giant town center parking garage. Most of the parking structure bits will be covered with something. Catellus tries to keep residents updated about these things at the POA Let's Talk events as well as during developer updates at PIAC meetings, which anyone is welcome to attend.

Stop in at the construction office - trailer between Thinkery and AMLI site. Lots of pictures. Briefly, the apartments will wrap around the garage. The blank walls facing Simond and McBee will have condos ala Greenway Lofts.

Catellus has taken great pains to require a certain aesthetic for the homes in our community. But at present, it's hard to imagine what will be done to make the raw concrete of the new AMLI apartment garages become less of an eyesore...particularly on the McBee side. It doesn't look at all like there will be ground floor retail there. Plus, while the parking garage for Mosaic (facing Ragsdale) has somewhat of an open feel, the one facing McBee is mostly solid concrete with openings reminiscent of a jail. I know it's early in the process...so does anyone know the plans for finishing off the north-facing elevation of the new AMLI apartments and garage?
