The Creek Corridor Framework Plan is a critical step towards the restoration and revitalization of the lower reach of Waller Creek and the surrounding public space in a rapidly changing urban context. As we reverse decades of neglect and build back a new thriving ecosystem in downtown Austin, we recognize that this ecosystem must embrace both the natural processes of a healthy creek and the sustainable human engagement of it. Therein lies both the challenge and the enormous opportunity for Austin — the ability to bring nature into the heart of the city where it can be appreciated and enjoyed by the greatest number of people. This document identifes the foundational technical and spatial strategies for achieving that ambitious vision.
