Community Meeting #2
8401 Cameron Rd.
Austin, TX 78754
January 31, 2019
6 PM to 8 PM
This meeting will confirm what Austin Parks and Recreation has heard so far from the previous meeting, survey, and small group discussions in order to focus on developing values that align with the vision of the future of the AARC.
The mission of the AARC is to provide spaces, services, resources, and programs through an Asian American Pacific Islander perspective. The vision is to empower Austin's diverse communities through cultural understanding and life-enhancing opportunities. The Asian American and Pacific Islander community continue to be the fastest growing demographic in Austin, making up more than 8% of the current population.
The initial master plan was completed in 2006, and construction of Phase I was completed 5 years ago. Since then, the AARC has become one of the most visited cultural centers in Austin, serving more than 20,000 lunches to seniors, and supporting more than 3,900 artists.
