First 2023 Newsletter

07 February, 2023

Welcome to our first newsletter of 2023! There is a lot going on already, and even more to come this year.

2022 Recap

With your support in 2022, we were active all along the corridor. Read more in our blog about our 2022 progress on the Parkway Plan, connectors, charrettes, McKalla Station, other hotspots, Cedar Park bond funding, Parkway to Downtown series, grant funds for community engagement, Project Parkway, and I-35.


Welcome Jennifer to the Initiative

Jennifer Potter-Miller began at the start of the year as our new Community Engagement Manager! Jennifer brings to the Red Line Parkway Initiative a background in community engagement on parks. She led the adopt-a-park group Friends of Patterson Park through a neighborhood park planning process and served as the chair for seven years. During this time the group organized dozens of community events and raised funds for several park improvement projects. Jennifer also served on the board of the Austin Parks Foundation for three years and has loved trails and hiking all her life. Stop by one of our events this spring to meet her in person!

Supporting Red Line Parkway via Amplify Austin

Your donation makes possible our work on behalf of the Red Line Parkway. The official city-wide day of giving begins Wednesday, March 1st at 6pm and goes for 24 hours, but... the Amplify Austin Day donor portal is already open, and you can beat the rush and make your 2023 donation now.

We’ll mark the start of Amplify Austin with an ice cream social on Wednesday, March 1st from 4-6pm at Bruning Green in the North Loop Neighborhood. Join us for face painting, refreshments, and games.

It’s My Park(way) Day

We’re participating in our first It’s My Park Day on Saturday, March 4th, 2-4pm. Come join us on the Boggy Creek Trail section of the Red Line Parkway, next to Downs-Mabson Fields. Stop by for ice cream, games, a scavenger hunt and more! Register via Austin Parks Foundation to get one of this year’s artist-designed t-shirts!

Stay tuned for other upcoming events this spring.
