Dear Friends,

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

PHASE II 
Request for Proposal

The project has now moved into the next phase of securing a Master Developer. Upon completing the Request for Qualifications (RFQs/Phase I), the City of Austin has invited Catellus Development Corporation to respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP). Over the next few months, Catellus will have an opportunity to prepare a response for how they plan to develop the 208 acres of city-owned land. Prior to making a recommendation to City Council, the community will be invited to provide input at two public meetings.
