The City Council of Lakeway passed an updated AV District Ordinance based on the AV Zoning Commission recommendations with very few modifications. It was agreed that it would go into effect only after an enforcement plan was created and put into place, although a placeholder date of Nov 1, 2022 was included in the vote to pass the ordinance. To wit, 5 council members are on record saying that if an enforcement plan was not in place by Nov 1, 2022, they would push back the date of the effective date of this new ordinance. Unfortunately, Nov 1st came and went without a collective conversation between the Airpark, The City (zoning and attorney) and the Police regarding enforcement and to this date there is no written enforcement plan.
The Mayor believes that he has created a valid enforcement plan, (which was not done in the way discussed during the council meeting mentioned above) and has used that "enforcement plan".
We are asking our City Council to require the enforcement plan to be developed, as promised and committed to, by a meeting(s) between the City (zoning and attorney) and the Airpark and the Police. To date this has not happened.

Significant new Development
POSTED FEB 2022
The Airpark and the City have agreed to propose the City Council that a Working Group be formed and approved by the Council on Feb 22nd at City Hall.
Once formed, this group will set ground rules, a meeting schedule and a due date for revising the 2010 City Ordinance.
During the time, the Airpark has agreed to a small set of adjustments to support the City's need to clear some obstacles until the working group completes its work and the ordinance goes through ZAPCO and then City Council for a vote.
While this is a good step in the right direction, a lot of work is yet to be done. We need your support for this working group (details to come) and all of our vigilance across the community and the city to ensure we stay on track.
- Continue our 9 volunteer tracks and the important work of each of these efforts.
- Be watchful with the city agenda, ZAPCO agenda, social media, etc.
- Join and contribute positive notes, photos and facts onto our official Facebook page HERE
- Notify concerns@3R9.org of any odd Airpark behavior, flights, etc.
Thank you ALL!
