On May 13, 2010, the UT’s Board of Regents conducted a hearing to receive public comment on the Brackenridge Tract Conceptual Master Plans from Cooper Robertson & Partners (CR&P).  You may still be able to submit written comments by e-mail:  At the hearing, the subcommittee received comments and input, mostly outlining the problems and negative consequences created by the CR&P plan.

As seen from the summary of the CR&P plan, Lion’s Municipal Golf Course is eliminated by both proposals, and is replaced with 12-15 million square feet of development.  In one development proposal, 9,900 residents in 6,645 residential units are added, along with 8,358,121 sq. ft. of retail and residential development, and 2,995,113 sq. ft. of office/hotel/civic development.  In the other development proposal, 13,050 residents in 8,698 residential units are added, along with 10,437,947 sq. ft. of retail and residential development, and 3,711,106 sq. ft. of office/hotel/civic development.

WANG has previously issued a press release statement deploring the recommendations from the CR&P plan, and continues to seek the best use for this core suburban spaces.  In addition, WANG’s Position Statement for the Brackenridge Tract is posted at
