Where is Northwest Austin?
The Coalition defines Northwest Austin as the parts of Austin west of MoPac (Loop 1) and north of 2222 (amended in January 2015 to include any neighborhood or community south of and adjacent to 2222). This includes most of the Northwest hills and the Arboretum up to Lakeline Mall and Avery Ranch.
The coalition currently focuses on City of Austin Redistricting, Transportation, Wildfires and Water, Affordability, and Public Safety. Amended in January 2015 to include Zoning and Land Use and Government Affairs.
The Coalition was formed in July 2013 after a series of meetings with neighborhood leaders in Northwest Austin. Those initial meetings included leaders from Anderson Mill, Millwood, Angus Valley, Northwest Austin Civic Assoc., Great Hills, and Southwest Williamson County. Collaborating with our friends from North Austin (NACN), the leaders decided to expand the meetings to include community leaders from all different types of groups. The first meeting of this newly-expanded coalition was August 5th, 2013.
