Support Improving Guadalupe St From 29th Street to 51st Street

Support improving Guadalupe Street from 29th Street to 51st Street by designating it as an activity corridor. Many areas along this stretch of Guadalupe Street lack walkable amenities or businesses that neighbors or Austinites can use and enjoy. The city council is considering designating this stretch of Guadalupe Street as an activity corridor, which will allow more walkable amenities, including restaurants, grocery stores, and small businesses that provide jobs to local residents, as well as creating much-needed housing near the urban core. Allowing more housing will help address Austin’s severe housing shortage that’s driving up rents for renters and property taxes for homeowners. The city council will make this decision at their meeting on October 6th. Every email matters!

I, along with the Friends of Austin Neighborhoods (FAN) membership, support the staff recommendation to designate Guadalupe Street from 29th Street to 51st Street as an activity corridor. Residents of neighborhoods along Guadalupe St. as well as other Austinites deserve greater access to jobs and walkable amenities, including restaurants, grocery stores, and small businesses, as well as much-needed housing near the urban core.

Thank you for your time and please consider voting to designate Guadalupe Street from 29th Street to 51st Street as an activity corridor.

Best Regards,
