Among proposed transportation projects to be placed on the ballot for a November 2011 bond election is the Travis County Citizens Bond Advisory Committee report (36 pages) submitted to Commissioner's Court. PSNA wrote a letter to the Committee, with a copy to the Commissioner's Court, supporting some projects in our area: Blake Manor Rd., FM 973-Blake Manor Connector and Wildhorse Connector; Old Highway 20 Bridge #155; and conservation easements (including the Wilbarger Creek and its tributaries). PSNA also recommended inclusion of Taylor Lane from at least future Braker Lane to Blake Manor. See map of PSNA area with proposed road modifications.

Proposed Septage Dumping on Littig Road - May 2011

Solar Power Project Relocated - January 2011

Road updates - Nov 14, 2011
Below is a brief summary of the anticipated construction schedule for Indian Hills and Whisper Valley from Talley Williams:
- The first thing that will be constructed on the Indian Hills Project will be the Decker Lake Road extension. We anticipate pulling permits by the end of the year and will commence construction once permits are in hand. Construction of the water line within the Decker Lake ROW should follow pretty soon thereafter.
- The first thing to be constructed on Whisper Valley will be the water trunk line. You will likely start seeing construction activity for this around the 3rd quarter of 2012. We estimate about 9 months of construction to complete the water line.
- We hope to obtain permits and start on the first 2 lanes of Braker (between FM 973 and Taylor Lane) in 2012.
- It is extremely hard to give an opinion on which project between Indian Hills or Whisper Valley will see the first buildings/houses since this will be completely driven by market conditions. That being said, our goal is for rooftops to be on the ground in the Whisper Valley project in the first quarter of 2014.
