Community Meeting #4
8401 Cameron Rd.
Austin, TX 78754
May 1, 2019
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
At this meeting, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department will present the final proposed concept of the future AARC to the community. The designs have been driven by the master planning values that were derived from the first community meeting, small group meetings, survey, and additional community input.
The community can continue to give feedback on the two preliminary concepts that the final design will be based on by visiting SpeakUpAustin.org/AARCMP-update or providing feedback in person at the AARC before April 19.
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 continues 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.
