Dear Friends,

We are excited to share the latest updates and events for the Colony Park Sustainable Community.

On May 8, Catellus Development Corporation submitted their proposal to the City of Austin as the shortlisted developer vying to serve as the Colony Park Master Developer.

Over the summer, City staff along with one Community stakeholder, will review and evaluate the proposal. In addition to the proposal, Catellus submitted a video presentation that was shown at the Colony Park Public Open House on May 24. Over 100 attendees scored the video and provided questions and comments. Input gathered during the event will contribute toward the evaluation of the developer's proposal and comments/questions received at the event will be addressed at our next public meeting.  

Thanks again for your continued support. We'll be back in August with more updates.

Have a great summer!  

Community Video Presentation

Thank you to everyone that joined us for our public meeting on May 24. A special thanks to all our partners and vendors that made this event possible.

If you missed the event, here's a sneak peak of the fun! You can also view a video interview produced by ATXN with our key project staff and partners. 

Public Meeting #2

Join us for our next public meeting scheduled for Saturday, September 8. Members of the community will have an opportunity to meet the team of Catellus Development Corporation. A presentation will also be given to respond to questions and comments received during our May 24 event.
