The City of Austin's Transportation Department and the Austin Center for Events (ACE) is considering extending moratorium on all new street events in the downtown area. The primary area of influence affected by this moratorium will be bounded by Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd to Oltorf St. and MoPac to Chicon St.
Ongoing, large construction projects and capital improvement projects are adding pressure to downtown streets, and the Parkland Events Task Force's deliberations on events taking place at Zilker, Vic Mathias Shores, and Fiesta Gardens, make this a timely issue.
What are your thoughts on a continued moratorium on street events in the central part of the city? Speak up, Austin!
