It’s the last day of 2021, and, as you think about those New Year’s resolutions and today’s end-of-year tax deadline, we hope you’ll keep the Red Line Parkway Initiative in mind.Read more
With just a few days left in the year, we wanted to remind you that all donations made to the Red Line Parkway Initiative by Friday, December 31st will be matched up to $10,000!
Our $10,000 match is provided by The Sinclair Black Family Charitable Trust. Sinclair Black is a living legend for advancing initiatives that improve Austinites' experience of public life outside of cars, including Great Streets (e.g. 2nd St. downtown) and Reconnect Austin (a proposed walkable East Avenue above I-35). He would like nothing more than to learn that you've supported the Red Line Parkway Initiative alongside him and his family.Read more
As we head into the holidays, we hope this email finds each of you preparing for a restful and joyful week ahead. This time of year always reminds us of the importance of community and the beauty of generosity.
At Red Line Parkway Initiative, we are feeling especially grateful for the friends and partners who stand by us and work with us to drive forward our mission to create the Red Line Parkway.
As you know, the Red Line Parkway is a 32+ mile trail and linear park that will run from Downtown Austin to Leander, providing much-needed, enjoyable, car-free access to transit, parks, public art, and other urban, suburban, and rural destinations.Read more
We are thankful to have you as part of the Red Line Parkway community. We have a few trail-side updates for you.
Does this look safe to you?
Well, of course, we mean to ask if it looks safe aside from the ice and snow!
The Downtown Austin transit station, bikeway, and walkway design (pictured above) was overwhelmingly approved by the Austin Pedestrian Advisory Council and the Bicycle Advisory Council in 2017. It was also approved by Capital Metro staff and represents an improvement over the previous design.
However, Capital Metro is currently proposing to exclude the Red Line Parkway from the McKalla Station area altogether! Their McKalla Station design would multiply the risk to trail and transit users by rerouting the trail along a circuitous and confusing route across several busy driveways.Read more
With the holidays upon us, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the interest you have shown in our work at Red Line Parkway Initiative.
