    I would like to see Applegate, Brownie and Grady as part of the tour. You could come down Applegate to go to Brownie Park then come back up Grady then over to China Town to look at that area which will take you back out to Lamar.

    I wonder if he could come to Georgian Drive north of the creek to see how fast folks drive while kids are walking to and from school without sidewalks on the West side of the street. I would like to get his input on the addition of speed bumps north of the creek and north and south of the school crossings. Also, is there anyway he could assist in getting a school zone warning light at Georgian and Rundberg which actually allows the traffic on Georgian to know whether the zone is active. Now, turning traffic has no notice either before or after a turn onto Rundberg alerting it to the activity of the school zone.

    Show the places where people play, like the community garden [on E Lola] and the park at the school. Show the areas where people take care of things, like the residential areas on Georgian and the clean up on Brownie, and show the areas that need something, like Powell.

    Might bring his attention to the bike lanes up Georgian that theoretically connect on north and south to city bike map, noting that these are a neighborhood positive that we are in the bike map route. However, if Austin is serious about bike transportation re safe routes then money-where-mouth-is significant infrastructure work is needed especially on the north end to connect through the Rundberg area. This can tie to the streets on the north end like Brownie. There may be support for better development of this route from serious bicyclists outside our neighborhood. For example, Dave Sullivan (Planning Commission) bikes through here regularly and knows the neighborhood. If Chris Riley’s recent statements are to be believed, he bikes through here on occasion. Perhaps Mr. Golbabai personally knowing users would be meaningful to him.

    The serious flooding issues just north of Little Walnut Creek east of Georgian can be mentioned, due to poor/no city planning for drainage.

    The vacant land all over the place should be pointed out since eventually stuff will happen there and he may have some role in what that is.

    I agree attention should be drawn to excess of the cars speeding through our residential area. It is bad on Georgian and on East Drive given their long stretches with no stops.
