Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) staff, with the assistance of Consultant, Brandstetter Carroll Inc., completed the DRAFT Swim 512 Aquatic Master Plan in July 2017. The master planning process began in 2014 with the Aquatic Assessment, incorporated public input, and engaged with over 13,000 participants.
Austin Mayor and City Council passed Resolution No. 20170817-052 on August 17, 2017 to form a Task Force to review the Aquatic Master Plan and provide recommendations. The Task Force has received presentations from PARD staff and community partner organizations, and has reviewed the Master Plan document.
The Aquatic Master Plan Task Force held a community input event on Monday, October 23rd to hear from the community prior to formulating their recommendations. The meeting addressed topics outlined in the resolution- equity, sustainability, funding, and site-suitability.
PARD staff will prepared a community engagement summary of the meeting to be included in the final Master Plan document.
The Aquatics Master Plan Task Force has two public meetings coming up to gather additional feedback before they finalize their recommendations.
