PLEASE attend Council Member Alison Alter’s town hall meeting on Monday, June 25th, 7-8 PM at Lion’s Municipal Golf Course (2901 Enfield Road, 78703) to discuss the future of our beloved Lions Municipal Golf Course and West Austin Youth Association.

We need people there to show support of the City of Austin and UT reaching an agreement to save Muny and WAYA before their leases end in MAY 2019!!

From Council Member Alter:

Lions Municipal Golf Course, better known in the community as Muny, is a beautiful piece of open space in west Austin that has served as a public golf course since 1924.  The course sits on the Brackenridge Tract, which is owned by the University of Texas System.  In 1989, the UT System renewed the City of Austin’s lease of the golf course land for an additional 30 years.  In 2011, the University Board of Regents declared their intention not to renew the lease, leaving the future of Muny uncertain.  The West Austin Youth Association, which leases land adjacent to Muny for their youth sports programs, is in a similar situation.

I have been closely following this issue and have heard from many neighbors who are concerned as well. In order to discuss the current state of affairs and hear from the community on this matter, I am holding a public meeting at the Muny clubhouse. This will be an informal meeting for me to provide an update from the City’s side of the discussion, as well as for you to share your thoughts and concerns. Please join me for this meeting and feel free to invite your neighbors.
