NCINC2 to participate in TxDOT Aesthetics Working Group

NCINC2 Chair Brendan Wittstruck will join representatives from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Councils, the Austin Neighborhoods CouncilFriends of Austin Neighborhoods and other groups in a series of IH35 Aesthetics Working Group Sessions hosted by TxDOT beginning in December 2015.

Although NCINC2 membership has concerns with a Working Group exploring mere aesthetics and design elements related to “treatments to walls, bridges, bicycle and pedestrian elements, and landscaping”, NCINC2 is regardless eager to use this opportunity to advocate for design elements that will improve pedestrian and bicycle comfort and safety and support to the extent possible connectivity, human and environmental health and City goals such as Imagine Austin.
