Lamar Beach Master Plan Vision Workshop and Public Meeting
The public meeting will include the following activities: a 30-minute open
house starting at 6:30, and a 60-minute interactive presentation beginning at
7 p.m. The project team will lead the interactive presentation and mapping
exercise to capture input from participants, including opportunities and
challenges of the planning area.

The planning area for Lamar Beach at Town Lake Metro Park includes
approximately 65 acres of parkland that is bounded by Lady Bird Lake to the
south, the railroad tracks above the YMCA Town Lake to the north, Austin
High School to the west and North Lamar Blvd to the east. Current uses of the
park include athletic fields, the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, Austin Pets Alive
Adoption Center, Roy and Ann Butler Hike and Bike Trail and the
Texas Rowing Center.  The West Austin Youth Association (WAYA) programs
six athletic fields for youth sports programs and maintains a seventh field for
public use.
In June, 2014, the City Council passed Resolution 20140612-060 to initiate
the master planning process for Lamar Beach at Town Lake Metro Park in
conjunction with plans to extend Pressler Street from 5th Street to W. Cesar
Chavez Street.  Design Workshop, a local landscape architecture and planning
firm, was selected to lead the planning effort. The next public engagement
meeting is scheduled for Nov. 18, 2015.
