Lost Creek civic group in West Austin could dissolve


Just three years after its creation, the Lost Creek Civic Organization representing homeowners in West Austin could cease to exist following a December vote.

LCCO President Paul Schumann recently issued a release stating that the organization will hold a meeting Dec. 6 to vote on a proposal to dissolve the organization.

“Having raised the level of civic engagement and greatly enhanced our community’s visibility outside of Lost Creek, the LCCO board of directors believes now would be a good time to dissolve our organization and give space for a new path forward in our neighborhood’s leadership and civic life,” the release states. “Reducing the number of neighborhood groups will allow for the consolidation of resources for newly elected leadership in the remaining organizations to strengthen their associations and provide strong representation inside and outside of Lost Creek.”

LCCO served Lost Creek, which borders Loop 360 to the west, as a governmental liaison on issues pertaining to Lost Creek residents’ quality of life and economic welfare of the neighborhood. Throughout its three-year history, the LCCO has worked or attempted to influence policy on a number of key Austin-area issues, including CodeNEXT, safety on Loop 360 and the threat of wildfires.

The release states that Lost Creek residential property owners wanting to vote on the dissolution proposal should bring identification to the Dec. 6 meeting at 7 p.m. at the Lost Creek Limited District Building at 1305 Quaker Ridge Dr. in Austin.

Shumann could not be reached for comment at this time.
