North Austin Safety Summit
August 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join your neighbors to talk about the crime and safety issues facing our community, learn about crime prevention strategies, share your concerns with your councilmember or APD representative, and brainstorm community-based responses.
PURPOSE – To build trusting relationships among community members to find better solutions and advocate for our needs.
FOCUS AREAS – The 3 mile radius around the intersection of North Lamar and Braker Lane. Including the neighborhood association areas of Georgian Acres, Gracywoods, North Austin Civic Association (NACA) North Lamar, Quail Hollow, and Walnut Creek.
ORGANIZERS – We’re All Neighbors, The Walnut Creek Safety Team and participating neighborhood associations.
The event is based on the following principles:
1. Trusting relationships create safer communities. Trust is the basis of a healthy community. When we build relationships with our neighbors, our service providers, and our officials, we build safety.
2. We are more empowered than we think. Everyone has a part to play. By focusing on our assets and what we can do as individuals and small groups, we can make a difference.
3. Public safety is a systemic issue. Nothing happens in a bubble. When we understand the systems that create and affect crime and safety issues, we can find better solutions.
