Our Congress Avenue kicked off with two community launch events last week. 800 Congress was transformed into a street-level experience of Congress Avenue from Town Lake to the Capitol. Several stations provided opportunities for attendees to complete an online survey and to write in ideas on topics from the environment to social justice and mobility.
The City of Austin in partnership with the Downtown Austin Alliance are working together with the consultant team from Sasaki to develop a community-wide vision for Congress Avenue. Congress Avenue means many things to many people, and we need to know what it means to you as we look to the future.
Downtown visitors, employees, residents are encouraged to share their ideas through a brief online survey.
