During our drought as Lake Travis continued to fall businesses around the lake closed due to the low water levels. Severe restrictions were imposed: Mandatory one day a week sprinkler usage and hand or bucket water for our yards, car washes mandatory recycling of water, no power washing , in some cities a band … (16 comments)

lake travis: Canyon Creek Subdivision, Premier NW Austin Master Planned Community - 01/22/16 04:41 AM
It's hard to believe back in the late 1980's the Blanton Company started development of the NW Austin community called Canyon Creek (zip code 78726); located off Hwy 620 about halfway between Hwy 2222 and Anderson Mill Rd.  For those of you who remember, this area had been ranch and hunting property.  Perry Blanton envisioned a master planned community with parks, pools and hike & bike trails and it became a reality...thank you, Perry!
The neighborhood expanded rapidly during the 1990's because of its proximity to Lake Travis, Lake Austin, major roads and highways, employers, shopping and its falling into the acclaimed … (17 comments)
