Austin’s Vision 2020 effort is taking shape, with projects ranging from adding a fishing spot to building more high-speed Internet infrastructure.
In April, the top 10 ideas for the community project were announced from a pool of more than 4,000 that were submitted by community members.
The Vision 2020 process is an open, all-inclusive community visioning process designed to keep our community vibrant and growing.
Once the ideas were revealed, citizens had the chance to be part of the different idea committees. Those committees have met regularly to figure out the specifics of the vision statements, which are just guidelines. Committees have looked into the where, when and how of the ideas.
Here are the 10 ideas, along with updates from the committees:
Revitalization of Austin Utilities building.
The group is working on a business plan, looking into grant funding and has formed subcommittees for potential building tenants.
They have scheduled an entrepreneurship exchange event for January, where a speaker and local entrepreneurs have been invited.
