Beautiful Day for the Austin Fermentation Festival 2018

After so much rain over the last few weeks, it was great to see the sun again on Sunday. We spent some time at the Fermentation Festival in the Seaholm District near downtown.

There were also workshops being held throughout the day at the Austin Public Library, which is a world-class facility if you haven’t been. All in all it was a well-attended event with a lively mix of fermented food and drink vendors. The samples were top-notch!

Trails Are Driving Community Interest

“As with Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), where demand to live in and around TOD projects has increased, studies are showing a similar trend for Trail-Oriented Development, where there is a rising demand for bike-friendly and walkable places close to trails.

Trails, according to a National Association of Homebuilders study, are the number one amenity potential homeowners cite when they are looking at moving into a new community. Trails provide communities with a valuable amenity that translates into increased housing values, a positive impact on property values and enhanced tax revenue for municipalities.”
