Erosion and Park Issues

There are areas of Gracywoods that are facing severe erosion problems.  To address these concerns we have invited the City of Austin, Watershed Protection Department staff to come and make a presentation about the problems our neighborhood and parks are experiencing.

Special Presentation at our GWNA meeting

Sept. 6th at 7:00p

by the City of Austin's Watershed Protection Department

Angela Gallardo, Conservation Program Coordinator

Staryn Wagner, Environmental Scientist Associate

will present important information about the creek erosion problems and how mowing affects these.

We invite all residents to attend, and especially those residents with properties adjacent to creek or drainage areas.

These City of Austin experts will also discuss the creeks and the mowing contracts of our area parks.  They will be coordinating the mowing with the parks department, based on the consensus established from Gracywoods Neighborhood Association members.

This is a very important meeting, because the City  will be presenting information on our options of services from the City, as well as on volunteer opportunities to support the park system, and they will educate us on how the volunteer process works with the City of Austin and the best way to gather support across City departments.  From this meeting's discussion and outcome, Watershed will work with the Parks Department to establish the  mowing criteria for our area.

We are very fortunate to have these experts come to meet and speak with us.
Please make plans to attend this meeting.
