Neighborhood speed mitigation meeting

A speed mitigation meeting was held with the city of Austin's ATD (Austin Transportation Department) on Sunday 9/24/2017 at 4:30pm at the Balcones Country Club. Atendees spanned the Mountain, Balcones Village/Spicewood, the Enclave, and perhaps Spicewood Estates.  Approximately 75 people attended.
See the two files attached for the presentation from ATD and the presentation from me representing the multi-neighborhood survey and requests.
The short summary of the meeting is:
From ATD:
Cedar Crest:  Four locations of Speed cushions
 Clearock:  Two locations of Speed Cushions

Messages from neighborhood to ATD:
- ATD is only listening to a small fraction of the impacted residents
- 95% of the neighborhood does not like the Spicewood Parkway Speed Bumps
- Request: remove those rubber speed bumps
- Request: do not install any more rubber speed bumps
- Engage the full neighborhood; change your policy
There are a several follow-ups under consideration and a few of us are going to meet Thursday to discuss next steps.
