Be a part of the Dawson Alpine Pond Transformation Project! VOLUNTEER on It’s My Park Day, March 5 from 9 am to 1 pm. The neighborhood plan is to eventually landscape the Alpine Detention Pond (fed by East Bouldin Creek) and an adjacent city-owned area to the west of the ponds into a native plants area, wet marsh, and a habitat area. The first step to turning the Dawson Pond at Alpine area into a pollinator/ wildlife habitat is to pick up trash and remove weeds and invasive species. Bring your gloves and weeding tools! Sign up on the It’s My Park website www.AustinParks.org or contact Marisa at email@example.com by Marisa Fushille.

Please note that due to unavoidable circumstances, none of the DNA officers will be able to attend the October meeting. Since we have two important issues on the agenda, the nomination of officers and a Residential Parking Permit vote, several of the Planning Contact Team Board Members have graciously agreed to run the association meeting.

Owners have presented to the Dawson Neighborhood at the June meeting. They are in the early stage of development, but we have received initial plans from them for our information. According to the plans the hotel will be 3 stories high generally, and 4 stories on South Congress and at the back. The rear will also have a swimming pool with a small building next to that.

A setback variance is needed because the development is going to be closer to the south side property line than is allowed by zoning restrictions (Adjacent to a church with dwellings – zoned SF3). They are in communications with this adjacent owner.
The 2510 property is narrow for this scale of building therefore the building is very long and narrow with a driveway on the south side encroaching into the setback area.
We will be continue discussion of the development at the next DNPCT meeting in August.
