Perhaps more than any other issue, most of District 7’s neighborhoods share North Burnet Gateway as a common opportunity and risk. As goes Austin’s second downtown, so too shall go the adjacent neighborhoods.
During the campaign I’ll be coming back to North Burnet Gateway several times. But I wanted to start with visuals – a quick photo tour of The Domain along with some observations.
Oddly, the most enchanting place during my walk of The Domain was this sidewalk next to an apartment complex. The quirky hand rails, attractive landscape and nice stone work gave it an uplifting feel. (Click photo to expand).
Not far from the same spot, I found these streetscape features inviting.
