Time is running out to weigh-in on the future of Waller Creek.

Portions of the 28-acre area from north of The University of Texas through downtown will be redeveloped. The biggest changes will happen from about Waterloo Park to Lady Bird Lake.
There are four design ideas under consideration for the area, and on Wednesday, there will be a public review of the final design options.

It's a chance for architects and designers to showcase their ideas in front of a jury panel.
That panel will then pick one design to recommend to city council.

"The public has had a chance to see all four designs and weigh-in, tell the jury what they like and don't like. All the public comments we've received in the last two weeks from both our website as well as on site from each of the public exhibit locations will be forwarded to the jury tomorrow,” Waller Creek Conservancy Executive Director Stephanie Lee McDonald said. “The jury will get a chance to review all that and take it into consideration."

The Austin City Council will review the design recommendation on Oct. 18 before making the final decision.

Once a design is chosen, the project is expected to take five to 10 years to complete.
