Dear Friends,

As the year comes to a close, we wanted to share the latest updates and events coming to Colony Park. We would also like to wish you and your families a Happy Holiday!



On October 23, the City of Austin, through its Economic Development Department, issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQs) for a master development partner. This issuance provides qualified respondents an opportunity to demonstrate their experience in developing a new vibrant, sustainable, and mix-use neighborhood on 208 acres of publically-owned land in Colony Park. The City held a pre-offer conference and site visit on November 16 and the submittal deadline for interested master developers is December 21, 2017. For more information, visit the Colony Park Sustainable Community RFQ website


On December 2, the Colony Park/Lakeside Neighborhood Association hosted their annual Holiday Dinner at the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center. With over 200 guests, the event featured youth and adult performances, a delicious meal with all the fixing, and free gifts for all children in attendance. Fun was had by all and Santa even made a special appearance!


We’re excited to preview our new logo. Over the past four months, our team has been working to develop an image that will represent the new phase of our project. Here is a sneak peak of our design, featured colors will be coming soon!


We will be announcing a date in Spring for our next Community Meeting. The public is invited to meet our Master Developer finalists and share their feedback. Our public engagement team will be out in the community spreading the word, please stay tuned.


Austin Art in Public Places Program (AIPP) has issued an Artist Call for the Colony Park District Park. AIPP is looking for an artist, or artist team, to create a permanent public artwork that will reflect the unique history and values of the neighborhood and serve as a visual marker to identify the Park. The application deadline is January 4, 2018. For more information, please visit



Keep Austin Beautiful in partnership with the City of Austin, Code Department and Colony Park Neighborhood Association, will be hosting a special bulk pickup day on January 6, 2018. Residents in the Lakeside Neighborhood should place items for bulk pickup on the curb the evening of January 5. Visit the Keep Austin Beautiful Events page or Facebook announcement for more information or opportunities to volunteer.
