WHERE: Clinton Hunter Police Substation meeting room, 404 Ralph Albanedo Drive, Austin, TX 78748
We will be discussing how to form our neighborhood watch group. Senior Police Officer Philip Kelly, who is our APD District Representative, plans to attend. I am looking forward to meeting every one who has been responding to the crime & safety postings and everyone else who is interested in improving the crime situation in the Armadillo Park Neighborhood. A huge thank you to Officer Kelly and APD for providing us with a meeting space! – Kim Gamble from Turtle Creek Blvd
Have you ever wanted to paint on the street?
Armadillo Park is getting our very own Creative Crosswalk. Creative crosswalks can break the visual monotony of the asphalt or concrete pavement and highlight crossings for safe walking. Creative crosswalks are also a great way to showcase the culture and history of a neighborhood. A group of your neighbors have applied for and gotten funding for a creative crosswalk at Cougar and Sahara. They hope it will make that particular intersection safer for school children walking to and from Odom Elementary and hopefully bring some color and joy to the neighborhood. We think it will be something to be really proud of!
How can you get involved? ALL are welcome to come help make the creative crosswalk a reality. Paint, brushes, stencils, etc. will be provided.

Thank you to everyone who came out for our beautification day last weekend. And thank you to those who helped us prepare and provided tools – we’re looking at you Austin Parks Foundation and Keep Austin Beautiful. We are so fortunate to have caring park adopters watching over our little park.
We spent the morning doing a litter clean up, some landscaping, and some painting. Then – Zumba!
We think the park looks really great!
Give your input on how the money should be spent
You may recall that in 2016 Austin voters passed a Mobility Bond. The 2016 Mobility Bond puts $720 million to local, corridor, and regional transportation and mobility improvements – including Brodie Lane, William Cannon, and Slaighter.
Learn more here and give your input by filling out this survey. They need to hear from US, those affected directly by this bond.
We voted for it, let’s make sure it works for us!

We are transforming Odom Elementary School Park one day at a time!
Thanks to a grant from the Austin Parks Foundation, we will soon inaugurate a new SHADE STRUCTURE at the park – a place for neighbors to sit and talk and for kids to escape the sun.
Help us continue to get funding for projects like this by taking part in a volunteer day at Odom Elementary School Park on Saturday June 10 from 8-11 a.m.! Sign Up Here.
Ps-If you are available to help prepare for the day, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us at the park Saturday, May 20 from 8:00am – 10:00am to help us keep Armadillo Park beautiful.

We would love to see you there!
We are pleased to announce our next neighborhood meeting will be Monday, May 22, at 6:30 pm, at the Austin Public Library branch at 5500 Manchaca Road.
Our featured speaker will be Delia Garza, City Council Member for Austin’s District 2.
Council Member Garza will discuss how you and APNA can work with the City to ensure continued funding for our local priorities, including the 2017-18 city budget and future city bonds.
If you care about our parks, sidewalks, flood mitigation, or the many other things the City pays for, then you should definitely join us!
We will also have a presentation from members of Wildflower Church who have offered to help us block-walk the neighborhood this summer to expand involvement in the neighborhood association.
Finally, we will have updates about Armadillo Park, Odom School Park, and our other projects.
Hope to see you there!
We love our neighborhood and want it to be great, and we can do more to make it great when more people are actively involved.
Therefore, we created the following prize to encourage more people to attending our member meetings.
Win a free Will package
Everyone should have a Will, especially people with children or grandchildren. (Read: Top 3 reasons everyone needs a Will)
At our May 22 meeting, APNA members who attend will be invited to put their names in a hat to win a free Will package. The winner can either accept the Will package themselves or transfer it to a friend or family member.
The documents will be drafted by neighborhood president Brian McGiverin, who is an attorney.
