Special Project: South Central Waterfront Initiative
The Waterfront Planning Advisory Board (WPAB) had provided leadership since 2012 on grant-funded and pro bono studies that focused on the challenges and opportunities in an area called the South Central Waterfront (comprised of the South Shore Central sub-district and three adjacent western parcels of the Travis Heights sub-district of the Waterfront Overlay Combining District Ordinance). In August of 2013 the Austin City Council passed a resolution to officially initiate a comprehensive small-area planning process for this area. To learn more, click here.
