Cousins Properties has arranged for a meeting with the City of Austin Transportation officials specifically for the customers of 111 Congress and 98 San Jacinto. As many of you have expressed, the signaling changes that were made in December have negatively impacted Cesar Chavez east of Congress Avenue, causing our garage exiting times to increase dramatically. Members of Cousins’ staff have met with the City and have expressed everyone’s concerns but the city needs to hear from you.
Please feel free to share this message and encourage anyone from your business who wants to attend to do so. The city needs to hear from the people this is most negatively impacting. We will be serving lunch so please RSVP to this invitation here before Tuesday at noon.
