Travis County is conducting a survey for how to proceed in the sale or lease of its Palm School site. In various resolutions and planning documents over the past several years, the City of Austin has consistently expressed interest in coordinating with Travis County to preserve Palm School as a public space, particularly because of Palm School’s rich historic and cultural value, as well as its ability to help connect East Austin and Downtown.

Please consider participating in the survey before it closes on Friday, April 26.

Please feel free to distribute the survey link below to any and all potential interested stakeholders.

To access the survey, as well as supporting information and presentations, please click on a link below:
