Welcome!

 
The Colony Park Sustainable Community Initiative (CPSCI) is a community planning process to design a Master Plan for 300 acres of publicly-owned land in East Austin.

The initiative is led by the City of Austin’s Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Office, in partnership with the Colony Park Neighborhood Association, FARR Associates, Urban Design Group, and the University of Texas at Austin.

The UT Public Engagement Team (PET), a program within the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, assists with outreach efforts for the CPSCI planning process and offers capacity building support for the neighborhoods surrounding the project site.
