Town Hall with Travis County Commissioner Brigid Shea • WB Community Center • 2106 Klattenhoff Drive

Pct. 2 Travis County Commissioner Brigid Shea will be holding a Town Hall this Thursday, October 19, at 7pm in the Community Center on Klattenhoff for the purpose of discussing the upcoming bond election. The following link will take you to a wonderful interactive website where you can learn more than you’d ever want to know about the upcoming bonds and how they will impact you personally, as well as Wells Branch. Please visit https://www.traviscountytx.gov/cbac and bring any questions you may have to the meeting on Thursday.
 
If you just want the short version, Proposition A, the Roadway Capacity Projects Bond impacts Wells Branch by funding the completion of a four-lane divided roadway with bike lanes and sidewalks for Grand Avenue Parkway between Bratton Lane and Crissom Lane, plus the installation of two additional lanes to Grand Avenue Parkway from Crissom Lane to 350 feet north of Roller Crossing. This should help streamline traffic and alleviate many of the issues we’re seeing from increased flow on the narrower neighborhood streets as well as offering some relief to Wells Branch Parkway. Proposition A also contains several Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Improvements. Proposition B is all about Parks. For complete details on ALL the projects, please visit the website above.
 
There’s also a tax impact calculator available at the aforementioned link, however, most of the homes in Wells Branch (everything valued at $300k or less) will see an increase of less than $2 per month.
 
Election Info: Travis County will hold a bond election on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, in conjunction with the scheduled Texas constitutional amendment election. Early voting will begin on Monday, October 23rd, and end on Friday, November 3rd, 2017. For additional information about Early Voting or Election Day polling locations and hours, contact the Travis County Clerk’s Election Division at 512-854-4996 or visit Travis County’s website at https://www.traviscountytx.gov and look for the Elections link.
