The Austin City Council has asked City staff to develop a range of options for use of the parcel of land at the corner of Rainey and Holly Streets that would address the needs of the adjacent Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.
The placement of the Center was significant because of its proximity to the former Juarez-Lincoln University site as well as being located in the center of a traditionally Mexican American neighborhood.
The Center is faced with continued challenges to fully realize the vision of a completed, built-out cultural center even as the Rainey neighborhood in which it is located changes through commercial development.
How do you think the property should be used?
Speak up, Austin!
