Urgent Call for Action in the Fight for Northcross
As you might have heard, Lincoln Properties is planning to build a 24-hour Super Wal-Mart at Northcross Mall, and concerned Austinites have joined together to oppose this 220,000 ft. big box store and promote community involvement in the Northcross redevelopment. Demolition is scheduled to begin on January 8, but the only city council meeting before that date is this Thursday, December 14, and the issue is not on the agenda for that meeting. If you are concerned about this issue, regardless of whether you live in an affected neighborhood, please call city council members on Monday to request the issue be put back on the agenda for the meeting this Thursday, December 14. The issue is to suspend approval of the Northcross site plan, which was approved by city staffers without neighborhood or city council notification or input.
