Concern: Austin Energy, the City of Austin, owns 2,863 acres of eastern Travis County, known as the Webberville Tract. On June 27, 2007, the City of Austin presented a PowerPoint Presentation to the Austin City Council concerning the feasibility of locating a landfill on the Webberville Tract. The site is located within an area bounded by Burleson-Manor Rd on the west, Blake-Manor on the north and east, and FM 969 on the south.
Much of the western side of the Webberville Tract, along Burleson-Manor Rd., backs up to residential acreages. A transmission line bisects the tract (dotted grey lines on the floodplain map below); there are several cemeteries in the area; and at least one old home, that of the Burleson family. In 2008, Austin Energy announced that it had contracted with Gemini to build a large solar array in the northern relatively flat area along both sides of Blake-Manor Rd.
These two maps were taken from the City of Austin PowerPoint Presentation.
The decision was postponed indefinitely. PSNA continues to monitor the issue.
