BY BRITTANY ANDES

Georgetown has experienced steady growth over the past decade, and the city is making land-use decisions to mitigate the growth expected when it comes to future housing, such as building multifam- ily and mixed-use developments. Since 2010, the city of George- town’s population has increased by nearly 20,000 people, rising from 47,400 to 67,176 between 2010 and 2020, according to U.S. census data. “What we have seen in the last three to ve years is growth is occur- ring so much faster than any demog- rapher, any economist, could have predicted, and we have got to get [infrastructure] on the ground now,” Georgetown Mayor Josh Schroeder

A I RPORT PAS SENGER GROWTH SOARS Despite pandemic-related passenger decreases, indicators show it is still possible to hit 31 million annual passenger by 2037 projected in the 2019 master plan.

BY BENTON GRAHAM

In June 2020, four months after announcing 2019 broke its passenger count record, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport issued a bleak projection: it could take until 2024 to climb back to its pre-pandemic passenger levels. The total number of passengers reached its low point in April 2020 at 47,781 passengers, a 97% decrease compared to April 2019. ABIA was hardly alone, as the entire airline indus- try grappled with a signicant downturn in passengers. However, ABIA did prove unique in how fast it has seem- ingly recovered, according to data from the city of Austin Aviation Department and Bureau of Transportation Statis- tics. The most recent federal data available shows passenger trac 20% lower in June 2021 than the same month in 2019, compared to a 15% drop at ABIA.

In a month that centers around a spirit of thankfulness, we want to take a moment and say THANK YOU! The success of our pediatric dental and orthodontic practices is due entirely to the loyal support of our patients and their families. And for that we are grateful beyond words. Since opening our doors back in 2008 we’ve watched infants mature into 9th graders, and some of our first pre-K patients are now driving themselves to school! Watching your kids—and ours—grow continues to be a blessing. As parents, small business owners and fellow Georgetown residents, please know how thankful we are for the opportunity to continue to serve you and your family. THANK YOU!

TRANSPORTATION BRIEFS Sidewalk improvements on Georgetown Square continue

BY BRITTANY ANDES

The city hopes to improve accessibility at these intersections and make it safer for pedestrians to cross with new ramps and bulb-out curb extensions that will shorten crossing distances and provide additional pedestrian space. These improvements are part of an ongoing project that was funded through revenue from a voter-ap- proved 2015 transportation bond.

Construction will continue on the Georgetown Square as improve- ments are being made to the sidewalks in downtown Georgetown that will create better accessibility and improve safety for pedestrians, according to city ocials. The outside lane going north- bound on Austin Avenue will be closed north of Seventh and south of Eighth streets through mid- to late-November as the sidewalk accessibility improvement project continues on the Georgetown Square. All other lanes will remain open during construction. The sidewalks will also be closed at the intersection of Austin and Seventh and Eighth during con- struction as the city installs more accessible sidewalk ramps on the northeast corner of Seventh and the southeast corner of Eighth.

they may be able operate without regulation, and this is something the city needs to address. “There are ordinances that cover taxi operations, but they are spe- cically dened in the ordinance as motor vehicles,” Tchida said of the current law. “There is also an ordinance that regulates nonmotor- ized vehicles for hire, but those are specically dened as being pulled by animals.”

Acting Police Chief Cory Tchida pre- sented to the Georgetown City Council on Oct. 26 possible plans to permit pedicabs around the downtown area.

AT THE CAPITOL Texas Legislature passes state, congressional redistricting bills

MAPMAKING 101 Unlike some other states, Texas relies on the state Legislature to redraw districts for the Texas House, Senate, congressional districts and State Board of Education every 10 years. The redistricting process must pass through the Legislature like any other bill.

Redistricting occurs on rst regular session after census is released, but due to timing, it occurred in special session in 2021

congressional districts, was passed by the Legislature on Oct. 19 following disagreements over amendments. A joint committee was called to work out the dierences. Gov. Greg Abbott signed all four bills into law Oct. 25. If the Legisla- ture had not drawn maps before the session ended, Abbott would have had to call another session. According to Texas’ redistricting website, the two requirements for the process are districts must have as close to equal population as possible and cannot limit voting based on race, color or language group. One change removed preclearance, which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down in 2013, per the redistricting website. Part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, preclearance required states with a history of racial discrim- ination to submit plans to the federal government for approval.

Texas lawmakers set the state’s legislative, congressional and State Board of Education districts for the next decade during the Legislature’s special session that ended Oct. 19. Texas’ growth from the 2020 census resulted in two new U.S. House seats. The state saw growth in Hispanic, Black and Asian popula- tions, according to the 2020 census. “The minority populations have grown dramatically, but it has also dispersed,” said Richard Murray, a political science professor at the Uni- versity of Houston. “There’s a lot of Black and brown ight to the suburbs, more than previous decades.” Senate Bills 4 and 7 as well as House Bill 1—which redrewmaps for the state Senate, State Board of Education and state House, respectively—were passed by the Legislature on Oct. 18.

Celebrating Georgetown’s early history for National Native American Heritage Month While the City of Georgetown’s story began with our founding in the mid-1800s, this area’s history is rich with the stories of the Tonkawa tribe and other indigenous people who settled in this area. To honor those early settlers, this month’s Tuesday Talks with Britin and Ann featured information about them, as well as some of the earliest settlements. You can watch the replay on the City’s website or on Facebook. Georgetown Public Library will also offer reading lists and displays with information about indigenous people and their stories.

City eyes redistricting to balance representation

EVENING OUT THE DISTRICTS

According to the city of Georgetown, current district populations are becoming unbalanced, necessitating redistricting. Here is how the districts break down according to 2020 U.S. census data.

City approves funding for park design ideal district size is 9,554 people, which is drawn from the population of the city divided by the seven districts. The major factor in the redis- tricting process is based on the one person-one vote requirement GEORGETOWN City Council began the process of exploring redistricting based on 2020 census information at its Oct. 26 workshop. Because of the growing population of Georgetown, the city’s seven dis- tricts will be redrawn in the coming months to better stabilize district sizes based on population growth, according to the city. Redistricting happens every 10 years set by an assessment of census data, and based on census informa- tion for Georgetown, the population has grown by 41% between 2010 and 2020, from 47,400 to 66,880.
