Full description

The Mueller subdivision at the old Austin airport is an excellent example of incorporating businesses and homes in one central location. Having a park, movie theater, and HEB grocery store, increases the chances for a person to walk as important amenities are within walking distance thus reducing the need to use a vehicle and lowers the amount of traffic in Austin. This model of living can be applied to future developments in East Austin.

Hey Micheal, I'm a facilitator here, thank you for another contribution to the Explore phase of the City:One Challenge.

That is a great example of utilizing an old subdivisions of Austin. Are there anymore areas of Austin that you feel could benefit from a similar revamp? What are amenities that you feel more areas of Austin can benefit from?

Thank you!
