Back to School

AISD starts classes on Monday, August 20! For those of you driving in the morning and afternoons, be prepared to slow down for the kids walking to and from school and eyes and hands ears off those cell phones as you roll through school zones!


Thank you to everyone that took the time to contact us with your feed- back for bike lanes on Crownspoint. We had an overwhelming “Nay” on the idea. We will be passing all feed- back on to Austin Transportation De- partment and will keep the neighbor- hood apprised of updates if there are any.


Interested in learning more about our volunteer positions and meeting some of the neighbors that keep this newsletter and neighborhood events going? Pencil in September 15 from 4-5pm for our first ever volunteer meetup! We will finalize location as date approaches.


A group of former and current neigh- bors gather every quarter for a casu- al lunch at a nearby restaurant. The next meeting is September 10th at Mandola’s Italian. If you’d like to receive invitations for upcoming luncheons, please send your name, address, telephone, and email to
