- Residents of a Southwest Austin condominium community received word from the Austin Transportation Department in late April that a traffic light will be installed at Southwest Parkway and Terravista Drive using contingency funds from the installation of two higher-priority lights. This marks a major milestone in the ongoing endeavor to build a traffic signal at this intersection, which is projected to experience an increase in traffic congestion once businesses in the nearby Lantana IV development open.

The first Belterra Village tenants are on schedule to open later this year or early next year, according to one of the project's developers. Once completed, the center, located at the intersection of Hwy. 290 and Nutty Brown Road, will be a 93-acre mixed-use community with tenants ranging from Sky Cinemas to Pieous Mecca.

- Eurasia Sushi Bar & Seafood, one of the newest tenants to join the Oak Hill Plaza development, will host a grand opening special May 4-7, with all menu items priced at 30 percent off.
